Check out the pics above ... and then the Clooney pic from early last month.
So we gotta ask ...
5:27 P.M. PT -- Rossi denies he ever stole any passwords ... and tells TMZ he bought the domain name legally from GoDaddy.com. "Simple as that." And, he says, if Beacher wants the domain name, he's welcome to buy it -- for 5K.
One of the biggest little people on TV -- "Pit Boss" star Shorty Rossi -- just got slapped with a lawsuit from a Hollywood bigwig who makes a living tossing little people around ... TMZ has learned.
Jeff Beacher -- the showman behind Beacher's Madhouse (at the Hollywood Roosevelt) -- is waging a full scale legal war against Shorty ... accusing the reality star of ripping off a bunch of website domain names.
In the lawsuit, Beacher says Rossi used to work for him in his theater, but when Shorty bolted he snatched up "jeffbeacher.com" ... dot org, and dot net -- as well as beachersmadhouse.net .. and other similar names.
And get this ... Beacher makes it sound like Rossi plotted the whole caper. In the docs, he says Rossi was "able to slip well under the radar" and steal passwords so he could gain access to accounts and change the ownership.
Perhaps Shorty wanted a little revenge for little people getting tossed through the air during Beacher's shows?
Anyhow, Beacher says he has a vested interest in getting back his property ... since he and Rossi "compete in the same small space, that being the employment of little people for profit."
JB wants his domains back AND damages. He values the names at ... $1 MILLION.
The law has come down hard on the guys who allegedly pillaged the Paul Walker crash scene ... they've been charged with 3 crimes.
18-year-old Jameson Witty was caught on video stealing the T-top roof of the Porsche right off the tow truck ... and, as if that wasn't enough of a smoking gun ... he then bragged about the heist by posting pics of the stolen wreckage on Instagram.
The L.A. County District Attorney has just charged Witty and his alleged accomplice, Anthony Janow, with felony grand theft, along with 2 misdemeanors -- destroying evidence and resisting, obstructing and delaying a peace officer.
If convicted, the 2 men face up to 4 years and 6 months behind bars.
Just like the time he was removed from the boulder ... Aron Ralston is now a free man -- and even better for him, the charges for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend have been dropped.
TMZ has learned the case against Aron -- the real-life inspiration for the movie "127 Hours" -- has been dismissed ... and we're told it's because prosecutors determined they didn't have enough evidence to convict him.
However, Aron's girlfriend Vita Shannon is still facing two criminal charges for allegedly assaulting Aron in front of their 8-month-old child.
Aron was released around 1pm today ... but his girlfriend Vita is still in custody with a $550 bond.
First Tom Cruise, now Kanye West is comparing his profession to BEING AT WAR ... saying just like soldiers and cops, HE PUTS HIS LIFE ON THE LINE when he goes to work.
Yeezus made the statements to Saturday Night Online this weekend, saying rapping is very dangerous work -- "This is like being a police officer or something ... or like war or something."
"You're literally going out to do your job every day knowing that something could happen to you."
But Kanye says it's not JUST the physical risks (he says he could slip on the stage) ... KW also risks getting his feelings hurt -- because people could watch a show and decide they don't like him.
Yeah, just like a cop or a soldier.
Lamar Odom just cut a deal in his DUI case -- agreeing to plead "no contest" to the crime and in exchange he'll be on probation for the next 3 years ... TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... Odom was arrested in L.A. on August 30 at 3:25 AM after cops saw him driving too slow on the 101 Freeway. He flunked field sobriety tests and refused to submit to a blood alcohol test. He was ultimately charged with one count of DUI.
But today, Lamar struck a deal with prosecutors ... and in addition to 3 years of probation, he's required to complete an alcohol education class by June 9.
He's also been ordered to pay $1,814 in fines and fees.
Odom's driver's license was automatically suspended for one year for refusing to submit to the BAC test -- and that punishment will stand.
Here they are ... pics of the drug aftermath at Lindsay Lohan's mansion party in Miami ... showing two burned out joints and something that appears to be the remnants of a baggie of cocaine.
TMZ already reported there was coke and booze EVERYWHERE at the party before things got violent ... and now, we've got pics of the mansion taken after everyone left the scene.
It's unclear who the drugs belonged to ... but Lindsay's camp insists the actress kept her nose clean the entire night ... and didn't booze either.
Still, Lindsay knows ... insane mansion parties in Miami aren't exactly bastions of sobriety ... and Lohan (who's still on probation) knows she shouldn't have put herself in that situation in the first place.
In fact, we're told after the rager ... and subsequent fight ... we're told Lindsay scrambled to find a private jet to get her ass out of town ... calling several private jet owners hoping to call in a favor.
Eventually, she found a ride ... and in a pic obtained by TMZ, you can see Lindsay smiling on the plane ... as if she doesn't have a care in the world.
Tim Meadows WENT OFF on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend -- saying he'll NEVER WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN after they excluded him from a throwback sketch.
Meadows -- who appeared on the show from 1991 to 2001 -- swore off the show after watching the "Brasky Bar Guys" bit ... a reoccurring sketch he often appeared in during his time with the show.
Meadows tweeted: "They did Brasky without me" ... adding, "Not even a 'hey would you want to come to do one line and bring your kids to see the 5 directions...?' Nothing... Wow..."
"I will never watch SNL again."
Meadows also explained why he thinks he's persona non grata -- and it traces back to his movie, "The Ladies Man."
"Sorry the ladies man bombed," Meadows wrote ... "If it would have done better they wouldn't treat me like a red-headed step child."
After the rant, Tim cooled down and seemed to back off his comments ... saying, "I'm not mad at the show. I know what it takes to produce those sketches in a short amount of time. I talked to a friend on the show who said it WAS a last minute sketch."
"I acted like a baby. I'm happy for all of my friends success and will always be grateful and proud to have been a part of SNL. That being said don't forget to see 'Anchorman 2' coming soon to a theater near you."
Fun Fact: "The Ladies Man" bombed so bad it took SNL 10 years to make another movie.
Justin Bieber is whining about being Justin Bieber ... and even though he's been doing everything he can to be seen as a grown-up, he now claims he's just a misunderstood "19-year-old-boy."
JB was on the radio with Ryan Seacrest this morning to plug his new documentary, "Justin Bieber's Believe" ... which he claims will show how difficult it's been for him to go from teen star to manhood in the public spotlight.
That's odd, talking about becoming a man ... while complaining he's just a boy? Can't have it both ways, Biebs.
Justin also told Seacrest "I'm not a robot, I'm a human being" ... who sometimes pees in kitchen mop buckets.
The man who socked out Paris Hilton's little bro WILL BE arrested for the attack ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
We broke the story ... Lindsay Lohan's friend Ray LeMoine has admitted he threw the punches that wrecked Barron Hilton's face during a mansion party in Miami last week -- though Ray claims Barron struck him first.
Still, law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... officials now believe they have "probable cause" to arrest Ray and will most likely make their move in the very near future.
Barron Hilton claims Lindsay orchestrated the attack because she thought he was talking smack about her at the party. LeMoine claims LL had nothing to do with the altercation.
Barron not only wants to press charges -- we're told he wants to sue both Lindsay and Ray.
Stay tuned ...
Nicki Minaj turned 31 years old yesterday -- and she celebrated with two voluptuous helpings of BOOB CAKE!!!
After arriving in a hot pink Lambo, the rapper strolled into Philippe restaurant in Bev Hills last night (probably because her manager is partial owner of the joint) ... where she partied with friends like 16-year-old Kylie Jenner.
We're guessing Minaj served appetizers, and maybe even dinner, inside the venue ... but it didn't really matter -- everyone was focused on dessert.
The former COO of Napster was killed Sunday during a bike ride in L.A. when he was struck by a Sheriff's patrol car on Mulholland Highway.
65-year-old Milton Olin Jr. -- who worked at the famous music-sharing site from 2000 to 2002 -- was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash occurred around 1pm and witnesses say Olin was in the bike lane when he was struck.
As for the Sheriff's deputy -- he was hospitalized for cuts to his face and eye stemming from shattered glass from the windshield of the patrol car.
Cops are investigating -- and so far, officials say neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be involved.
