UFC Champ Jon Jones
I Believe Bill Cosby
He's Too Classy To Be a Rapist
11/21/2014 5:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
UFC champ Jon "Bones" Jones says he doesn't believe the allegations against Bill Cosby -- telling TMZ Sports the actor always seemed way too classy to be a rapist.
Jones was at LAX Friday when he explained why he was on Team Bill -- "I've never met him, but from what I've seen he seems to be a class act. I kinda grew up admiring him."
In fact, Jones also joked that Cosby was such a huge star, he wouldn't need to rape women -- he could have anybody he wants.
Still, Jones adds ... "I hope [the allegations are] not true."
Diabolical Heckler Derails Show
11/21/2014 4:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Morrissey is clearly not a fan of Polish jokes ... because he stormed off the stage of his concert after a heckler evaded band members and kept on ranting.
Morrissey was performing at Klub Stodola when a heckler yelled something and unnerved the singer 25 minutes into his set.
Morrissey left the stage in a huff and his band tried ferreting out the heckler but couldn't find him ... so the venue announced the singer would not be coming back because he didn't feel safe.
Maybe the band is better at duck duck goose.
Venue Cancels Concert
He's Box Office Poison
11/21/2014 4:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A fifth venue has pulled the plug on Bill Cosby, but this time the honchos at the concert hall made it clear ... they were worried about a boycott if the show went on.
Broadway Center in Tacoma, Washington just pulled out of the April 18, 2015 Cosby show, saying they took into consideration "the financial harm we will suffer by cancelling, and even greater financial risk of moving forward with the performance." They don't specify the risk, but it seems they mean boycott.
The execs at Broadway Center say they are a non-profit "that works diligently to strengthen our community's social fabric by building empathy, furthering education, and sharing joy. Ultimately we were not confident in our ability to meet those objectives by proceeding with Mr. Cosby's performance."
Venues in Vegas, Tucson, Illinois and South Carolina have also cancelled.
Paige Laurie Dubbert
Here's What a Walmart Heiress Prenup Looks Like
11/21/2014 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Walmart Heiress Paige Laurie Dubbert got her husband to sign a prenup that gives him $15 million ... but only if they're married for 30 years and she croaks.
Paige and Patrick Bode Dubbert have been locked in a bitter divorce, and they both just filed legal docs revealing the very long prenup agreement.
We're including the doc in the post in case you want to see how rich people do it, but the big thing is that Patrick gets $30K a month in spousal support for half the length of the marriage. They've been married almost 6 years, so he'll do ok.
Patrick obviously thinks he can do better, so he's gunning to invalidate the prenup. He says he had hired a lawyer to help negotiate the document before they got married, but he says Paige's lawyer underhandedly convinced him not to use her, saying she was a "crazy female lawyer" who didn't know what she was doing and who "had never dealt with billionaires."
And this is the best ... Patrick says Paige's mega-wealthy parents gave him an ultimatum -- either sign the prenup before the parents returned from a yacht trip, or the parents would not pay $100K for the wedding planner.
I GPS'd My Ex
But I Thought It Was Legal!
11/21/2014 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Thomas Beatie believes he had every right to track his ex-wife ... so says his current fiancee, who insists the famous "Pregnant Man" LEGALLY GPS'd the woman's whereabouts.
Amber Beatie tells TMZ ... after Nancy Beatie threatened to take off with Thomas' kids ... he secretly placed the GPS tracker on the car she was driving.
We're told Thomas did his own legal research and concluded GPSing her was fair game under Arizona law. He put the tracker on 2 years ago but she didn't discover it until recently.
Turns out he was right ... he was allowed to put the device on the car 2 years ago because at the time he was the registered owner.
But Thomas transferred title to Nancy more than a year ago, and at that point cops say keeping the device on the whip is plain 'ol criminal stalking ... which is why he was arrested.
Beatie was released from jail Friday morning.

"The Queen Latifah Show" just got the ax.
The show is in its 2nd season and we're told production will be coming to a halt. Our sources say the staff was brought into an office Friday AM and given the news. The honchos weren't specific but it's all about ratings and cost.
Queen Latifah just posted a note on her Facebook page, saying to her staff, "Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed 'True Grit.!'"
She ends by saying, "The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome ... believe in yourself and continue to fly."
Two Networks Vow ...
We're Not Cancelling Reruns
11/21/2014 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TV Land may have canned Bill Cosby's classic show from its schedule ... but 2 other networks are standing firm behind the comedian -- and there's a big demographic difference.
Centric -- which frequently airs marathons of "The Cosby Show" -- vows the network will continue to air reruns.
Same goes for ASPiRE ... which claims to be "closely monitoring the situation" -- but they're not taking reruns of his other sitcom "The Bill Cosby Show" off the schedule.
Both networks market themselves as targeting African Americans -- so it looks like they believe their demo hasn't turned its back ... at least yet.
This is the first good news Cosby's heard all month.

She's Really Hot Again!

Previously dismissed after several plastic surgeries and many drunken escapades, Tara Reid donned a skimpy bikini this week and frolicked on the beach in Hawaii to show the world ... she's looking fiiiiiiiiine.
Reid has come a long way since she famously got denied at Hyde -- the night we discovered Kim K -- or tripped over a motorcycle or stumbled out of a club on a Tuesday or ... well, you get the idea.
It's amazing what clean living and a movie about a weather disaster made out of sharks can do for a person.

Ricki Lake Divorce
Hubby Claims, 'You Defrauded Me!'
11/21/2014 10:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ricki Lake tricked her estranged husband into signing a prenup and he wants the divorce judge to invalidate it ... TMZ has learned.
Ricki's hubby, Christian Evans, claims Ricki committed fraud in getting him to sign the prenup before their marriage in April 2012. He does not explain the basis of the fraud, but this becomes SOP in lots of celebrity divorces, where the other spouse tries to squeeze more cash out than the prenup provides.
If the prenup is invalidated, Evans would be entitled to half the earnings during their marriage ... although Ricki's heyday was her talk show era, long before they got hitched.
Based on what we see ... it looks like what Christian is really gunning for is more spousal support than the prenup provides.
Polaroid of Robed Cosby
Before Alleged Dickinson Rape
11/21/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
These are pictures of Bill Cosby taken by Janice Dickinson, just before he allegedly date raped her.
Dickinson says she went to Lake Tahoe in 1982 to see Cosby perform. She says the comedian told her to come to the hotel and he'd help her with her career.
Dickinson told ET after dinner he gave her a pill and some wine, and the last thing she remembered was Cosby "in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me." She says the next morning she was naked with semen between her legs.
Dickinson tells TMZ ... she took these Polaroids of Cosby in the hotel room after she took the pill but before she blacked out. You see Cosby lounging in the colorful patchwork robe, with a 40 of malt liquor by his side.

Folds Like Cheap Suit
After Fat Shaming
11/21/2014 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
50 Cent crossed the line, and he knows it ... retreating big time after taking a shot at Diddy and his competing vodka ... at the expense of an overweight woman.
50 is now endorsing EFFEN Vodka and decided the best way to promote his brand was to go after the competition ... Diddy and Ciroc. But the way he did it was super offensive, posting a photo of Diddy grinding up against a large woman ... equating Ciroc with banging large chicks.
It didn't take long for people to go on the attack, and 50 just waived the white flag by pulling down the post and pretending it never happened.
So much for his EFFEN cheap shot.
Vegas Casino Pulls Plug on Concert
11/21/2014 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bill Cosby's comedy tour is starting to crumble ... Vegas and another venue just cancelled concerts.
Cosby was slated to perform at Treasure Island in Las Vegas a week from today and at the Desert Diamond Casino in Tucson, Arizona February 15 ... but those shows have now been 86'd.
A rep for Treasure Island released a statement calling the decision "mutual." The casino will offer refunds. TMZ spoke with the casino just two days ago and there were no plans to cancel.
Cosby performed Thursday night in the Bahamas at a benefit for an African American women's service organization.
None of the other venues for his concert series have pulled the plug ... yet.
9:53 A.M. PST -- One more appearance -- at the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, IL -- just got cancelled for April.
