Breaking News

0728-phaedra-parks-TMZ-01A guy claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg went looking for Phaedra Parks in her Atlanta office Thursday morning -- but he got the wrong building.

Police evacuated the office building the man walked into on Peachtree Road and responded to the scene. According to witnesses he walked in demanding to see Phaedra and said, "I'm not leaving. I've got a bomb." 

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star -- an entertainment lawyer -- does have an office on Peachtree, but it's a few buildings down from the one the man entered.

0728-phaedra-parks-man-arrested-TWITTER-02Police arrested a suspect. It's not clear if he really did have a bomb.

We don't even know if Phaedra was in her office. She's been in Philadelphia this week.

Ja Rule & Ashanti We Don't Promote Killings

Exclusive Details

0728-ja-rule-ashanti-tmz-01Ja Rule and Ashanti do not endorse killers, and they've changed the name of their tour ... just in case anyone's getting it twisted.  

Ja tells TMZ ... he and Ashanti have decided to change the original tour name, Natural Born Killers, because they thought it would be "insensitive to the families of the victims" of senseless violence.

Ja reposted a promo for their 12-show tour with the word "Killers" crossed out. It's now called the Natural Born Tour.

Ja stressed to us ... they have a creative and First Amendment right to call the tour whatever they want, but made the change anyway.

The name's just for promotion purposes, since tickets to the show are being sold simply as Ja Rule & Ashanti.

Hilary Duff Urgent Warning from Cops ... Obsessed Fan Trying to Propose

7/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727_hilary-duff_tmzHilary Duff could get a marriage proposal any day now, but it's coming from a scary individual who is driving all over town searching for her.

We've learned Bev Hills police already reached out to Hilary's people to warn them about the man. Law enforcement sources say the ordeal started earlier this month when he hired a limo driver. We're told he was carrying a photo of a crib he said Hilary owned, but did not have her address.

He proceeded to have his driver search aimlessly for 2 hours while he spoke about his intent to marry Hilary. When the ride ended, we're told the driver was so concerned he called cops, who then contacted Duff's team.

Sources close to Hilary say her security team knows who the man is and what he looks like. They've had issues with him in the past, but we're told Hilary hasn't filed a police report or sought a restraining order ... yet.

For now, we're told she's adding more manpower to her security detail -- and the guards at her gated community are also on alert.

Pope Francis Takes a Spill ... Watch That Step!

7/28/2016 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You gotta feel for Pope Francis -- he went down hard in the middle of Mass Thursday morning in Poland.

The Pontiff appeared to miss a step as he was walking down from the altar. He had a few priests spotting him, and they helped him back to his feet. Honestly, it's a miracle it doesn't happen more often with that long, heavy robe. Somebody cut the guy a break.

Official word from the Vatican -- "The pope is fine."

Amen.

Insane Clown Posse Soda Fight Ends In Punches

7/28/2016 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

An ICP fan got punched in the face by Shaggy 2 Dope after he broke the cardinal Juggalo rule: don't waste a Juggalo's soda.

A rep for ICP tells us the fight started when a fan wouldn't stop chucking plastic, unopened bottles of Faygo onstage towards the band at their show a couple of weeks back.

For non-Juggalos, Faygo is a cheap, sugary, carbonated soda that's culturally important in the Juggalo world. ICP made Faygo famous by giving fans "Faygo showers" and spraying them with their fav soda.

The rep says Shaggy felt provoked and was only trying to protect himself and his partner in rhyme, Violent J, from physical injury ... so he jumped into the crowd and laid into the Faygo-thrower.

We're told security broke it up and escorted the fan out of the venue.

No use crying over spilled Faygo.

'Shark Tank's' Scrub Daddy You're Sponging Off Our Customers!

7/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727-scrub-daddy-01The company behind Scrub Daddy -- the most successful product ever pitched on "Shark Tank" -- is accusing a man of tricking customers with a knockoff sponge.

Scrub Daddy says Brian Reaux's attempt to push "Scrub 'N EZ" will confuse faithful Scrub Daddy customers because of the similar name and use of a smiley face ... this according to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ.

In the docs, Scrub Daddy also has beef with Reaux marketing his sponge holder as fitting "perfectly in Scrub Daddy [sponges]." 

SD has reportedly generated more than $75 mil since striking a deal with Lori Greiner on the show. The company wants "Scrub 'N EZ" to change its name, and quit using Scrub Daddy in advertising.

EXCLUSIVE

Waka Flocka and Lil Scrappy won't be writing a relationship advice column any time soon, but they have some entertaining takes on relationships.

We caught up with them and their ladies in ATL and asked how they handle spats at home. Check out the vid ... the rappers have hilarious, and very different approaches.

BTW, nice to see Waka back with Tammy Rivera after a short breakup -- and she even dropped a bombshell about Scrappy and Bambi Benson's upcoming wedding.

She also gave us the tea on the bachelorette party, and Scrappy wasn't exactly havin' it.
