The rocker, whose full name was Vincent Paul Abbott, formed Panera with his brother, Dimebag Darrell in 1981. The group’s 1994 album Far Beyond Driven, debuted at No. 1 on the charts.

Once Pantera ran its course, the Abbott brothers formed Damageplan in 2003. Tragically, guitarist Dimebag was shot and killed onstage while Damageplan was performing in concert on Dec. 8, 2004 in Columbus, Ohio. The crime was committed by a mentally disturbed 25-year-old male fan who had stormed the stage and murdered Dimebag and three others.

Paul’s fellow rockers are now mourning his loss online, including Paul Stanley of Kiss, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, and Travis Barker.

And Bret Michaels chimed in with the tweet, “Vinnie was a great friend. My heart is aching. My prayers and condolences go out to his family, band and crew. Godspeed my friend.”

‘American Chopper’ Star Paul Teutul Sr. Ordered To Pay Creditors In Bankruptcy Case

Pay the piper!

American Chopper star Paul Teutul Sr. has been ordered to start paying his creditors in his multi-million-dollar bankruptcy case exclusively learned.

PHOTOS: Celebrities Who Have Filed Bankruptcy

Judge Cecelia Morris ordered Teutul Sr.  to pay JTM Motorsports a whopping $50 a day – $1500 a month – starting immediately, for the money he owes them on a Corvette they worked on for him, according to court documents obtained by Radar.


John Moundros, part owner of JTM Motorsports, told Radar exclusively: “We don’t want to do business with this guy anymore because of all the outstanding lawsuits he has with people.”

“The Debtor is ordered to pay adequate protection payments of Fifty Dollars per day beginning on the day this order is signed; it is ORDERED that, beginning on the last day of June 2018 and on the last day of each month until confirmation the Debtor will send certified funds for the amount due and owing under this order made payable to JTM Motorsports, Inc. to the address that JTM Motorsports, Inc. has on file with this Court,” the documents filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court Southern District of New York on June 18, 2018 stated.

The American Chopper star’s bankruptcy case was still winding through the courts but the order to pay JTM Motorsports was the first to his creditors.

Moundros explained the history of the debt to Radar, claiming he was asked to prep Teutul’s 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 for racing mode and he would use it to compete against a driver on another reality show, Street Outlaws.

Extensive work was done on the car, but the money never appeared and they stopped the project.

“All the vendors we reached out to were originally doing it for exposure on Street Outlaws. Since he hasn’t paid, and they didn’t get exposure on Street Outlaws they don’t want anything to do with us anymore. He owes us about $63,000 with storage fees,” Moundros told Radar.

The small business owner told Radar that Teutul stiffing him the $63,000 hurt his company.

“We can’t absorb a loss like this.”

Moundros told Radar he was in contact with Teutul Sr. in February when he pitched picking up the car and filming that for American Chopper.

“That wasn’t the deal. And nothing happened. Not that we would want to do it anyway. We wanted to be on Street Outlaws, not American Chopper.

Moundros, who said he was told he would be given a certified check as payment each month, told Radar what he thinks about Tetutl Sr.

“I never met him. I never really watched the show. I’m just disappointed. That’s 100 percent for sure. It’s a crappy situation. He is the root cause of it, in my opinion.”

Moundros also told Radar that they were going to lose money on the car no matter the outcome.

“Even if he signs the car over to us so we could sell it and recoup the costs we are still going to take a bath. At the end of the day it is going to wind up costing us.”

Cowardly Scientologists Call Cops On Leah Remini

leah remini scientology cops called trespassing

The war between actress-turned anti-Scientologist activist Leah Remini and the cult church is heating up.

Scientologists called the cops on Leah, along with former church executive Mark Rinder and videographer Mark Bunker, also a staunch critic of the cult, on June 20 to complain the trio were trespassing on church property in Clearwater, Florida, according to police records exclusively obtained by!

But when it came to showing up at the scene to complete “Tresspass Warning” forms, as instructed by police, the cowardly Scientologists stayed away in fear of being caught on video by “multiple cameramen” who were filming Leah.  The former Scientologist is currently working on the latest season of her Emmy-award winning TV docuseries, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath.


“They called @Clearwater_PD on us for sitting on a park bench,” a frustrated Leah Tweeted to William Rice, the senior pastor at Calvary Church. The pastor’s Baptist congregation is also in Clearwater, where Scientology is headquartered.

“Waste of your taxpayer money. They’re not paying for your PD, but they love to call them. Four cars and officers, Wow!” Leah wrote to Rice, who’s called Scientology a “dangerous cult.”

A Scientologist armed with an “injunction order,” had demanded cops specifically remove Bunker. “It’s an actual injunction… a court order to stay away,” the church member told a police dispatcher, in a 911 recording released exclusively to Radar.

Unsealed court records show Bunker, a videographer who has produced programming critical of Scientology, was one of 10 people ordered in 2001 to stay away from church members.

Rinder, however, argued paperwork given to police by Scientologists with information about the injunction was “invalid.” Officers on the scene responded saying they were strictly answering the trespassing call.

Rinder, Bunker and Leah, along with the video crew, “voluntarily moved along off of the premises,” the officers said.

When reached by the Radar, Bunker confirmed, “We were doing a story on Scientology in Clearwater,” and encouraged Radar to continue its investigations into the church.

“I don’t mind you digging any deeper at all,” he exclusively told Radar, deferring to Leah for any further comment.

Leah’s publicist, Rachel Karten, said the anti-Scientology activist had likely said all she had to say with her Tweet.

“Leah’s not going to comment on anything if she is in the middle of filming. It is known that the show is coming back in the fall. So, a new season is taping. That’s public knowledge,” the publicist said.

No Fight: Fraudster Joe Giudice Certain To Be Deported, Declares Top Lawyer

Joe Giudice Deported

Teresa Giudices husband Joe is almost certainly going to be kicked out of the country in the very near future, can exclusively report.

As Radar first reported, Italian native Juicy Joe, 46, is officially in the process of being deported from the United States for his fraud crimes. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson exclusively told Radar the reality dad is in “removal proceedings,” and could even be deported before his three-year prison sentence is complete in March 2019.

Though Giudice’s attorney told People that “no decision” had been made regarding his status, New Jersey immigration lawyer Eric Mark of the Law Office of Eric M. Mark insisted to Radar that “chances of him being deported are as close to 100 percent as you can get.”

For prisoners with an aggravated felony — such as fraud of more than $10,000, like Joe — “ICE will start the removal proceedings while the prisoner is getting close to the end of their term,” Mark explained. “And then if the case has been concluded, they can be deported directly from prison instead of being transported into immigration custody.”

PHOTOS: Joe Giudice’s Most Outrageous & Scandalous Claims In Court

As Radar reported, Joe began the proceedings within the past few months. His last hearing was held on June 20 in Pennsylvania’s Allenwood prison, where he was recently transferred to serve the remainder of his sentence

The immigration court makes no exceptions for reality stars or prisoners with young children, the attorney insisted. And the only way to avoid the deportation is to prove he could be tortured in his native country.

“He would have to show it’s more likely that if he returned to Italy he would be tortured,” Mark said. “And that is unlikely to happen if he is from Italy.”

Or, Mark claimed, Joe would have to prove his United States citizen spouse, Teresa, and his children would be subject to “extreme and unusual hardships” in his absence.

“It is a limited exception and very difficult to pursue successfully,” Mark said. “They look at medical, professional, familial, and financial hardships. You have to show that the wife and children would suffer those types of hardships beyond just the normal hardships of missing their father and missing their husband.”

After deportation, Joe will likely be forbidden from entering the United States for 15 years or longer.

“He is going to be barred for at least 15 years. And realistically with an aggravated felony, a lot longer,” Mark told Radar. “He would only be able to get like a visitor’s visa maybe many years into the future. He is not going to be able to get another green card.

Despite the strong chances of her husband’s deportation, Teresa is planning to party at a New Jersey club this weekend — and has put on a “happy” face around even her close friends.

“Teresa is acting like nothing [happened.] Regular Teresa. Happy as can be,” a friend told Radar. “I really don’t understand how she can be so happy right now if this is really going on. She’s just really hiding it.”

Michael Jackson’s Father Joe Is ‘Going To Die Any Day Now,’ Says Source

Joe Jackson Sad Last Days

Michael Jackson‘s father Joe is on his deathbed — and his famous family is already making arrangements to lay him to rest, has learned exclusively.

“Joe is going to die any day,” a family insider told Radar, adding that the cancer-suffering patriarch’s longtime wife has given up hope. “Katherine doesn’t think he will live until Monday.”

With time of the essence, the Jacksons have acted quickly to make the end peaceful for Joe.

“They are already planning his funeral,” added the source.

“Joe wants to be buried next to Michael. So he’ll be laid to rest in the mausoleum, and so will Katherine.”

“The Jacksons have already bought multiple plots at Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles, have spoken to police and arranged car services.”

As Radar previously reported, despite their public family feuds and tumultuous father-son relationship, Joe desperately wants to spend eternity next to his late superstar son. He petitioned the music icon’s estate to spend $14,000 for a burial plot next to his son’s grave site.

The famous patriarch’s health has been rapidly declining for years, with Joe suffering a stroke in 2015.

As The National ENQUIRER first reported last year, he has also been diagnosed with an “aggressive” form of colon cancer.

According to reports, family members, including Jermaine Jackson, 63, were barred from seeing their father.

Now, that has changed, Radar has confirmed.

“He’s not in a hospital. He’s at home in Las Vegas,” said the source. “He is sleeping a lot and crying a lot. He wants everyone around him.”

Before Michael’s death in 2009, the two feuded publicly, with the “Billie Jean” singer accusing his father of abuse.

“Joe realizes now his impact on the family. He has regrets about what he did to his children,” the source insisted.

Even at 89 years old, it’s been difficult for him to accept the end is near.

“He doesn’t want to die,” continued the source.

“Katherine is sad, but she has forgiven him.”

The Jackson matriarch, 87, has also experienced health setbacks. In April, Radar reported exclusively that Katherine suffered a stroke and had been having trouble seeing and speaking.

Added the source: “Joe’s friends and family have been coming together, even from Indiana, to say goodbye and go to the funeral when that day comes very soon.”
