New Found Glory Guitarist
Accused of Online Sex Chatting with Underage Women
3/13/2014 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
New Found Glory guitar player Steve Klein is being accused of video chatting with a minor on an adult website ... but the guitarist says he's totally innocent.
Klein pled not guilty to multiple felony charges back in December ... 2 counts of lewd conduct with a minor under the age of 14, 3 counts of lewd conduct with a minor 14 or 15, 1 count of intent to commit lewd acts with a minor, and 1 count of possession of child pornography -- according to Alternative Press.
Details of the arraignment were just made public ... but on the day it happened, NFG released a shocking statement ousting Steve from the band -- with no explanation about why.
Now, the band says Steve told them about the allegations when they returned home from a tour in Australia ... and they decided to part ways at that point.
Steve's lawyer released a statement saying ALL charges are "derived solely from online consensual video chats" ... he didn't own any child porn ... and Steve believed the girls were older than 18.
The guitar player also says that no one actually knows who the alleged minors are -- including the prosecution, police and defense -- so it's possible they were of age.
Klein is due in court next week.

3/13/2014 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Darren Sproles' wife tells TMZ Sports ... she's under attack online over the way she publicly trashed the New Orleans Saints -- but she wants the fans to know her beef is ONLY with management.
After Michel Sproles learned that N.O. was planning to trade her running back husband, she went to Instagram and said the situation was "f**ked up." She also said that God would "get u back."
We spoke with Michel ... who tells us she's been hammered by angry Saints fans who have been blasting her online -- calling her a "golddigger," a "bitch" and worse ... and she wants it to stop.
"I started out just jokingly expressing myself," Michel says ... "It's gotten misconstrued. I wasn't attacking the Saints FANS." Michel says her beef is only with the front office.
Still, Michel says she doesn't regret posting the message ... but notes, "I maybe should have delivered it differently."
"When you're sad, you express yourself as you normally wouldn't."
As for Darren, Michel says he predicted that her post would "blow up" before she put it online ... she disagreed.
"He was right, I was wrong," Michel says. Though she says he hasn't commented about the situation since the post went up.
Michel says she's now trying to move forward and focus on Darren's new team -- the Philadelphia Eagles.
As for the haters, Michel says ... "These people don't have to follow me, they can voluntarily exit my Instagram."

Death Sunglasses Up for Auction
3/13/2014 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If you love Paul Walker and no longer have a soul, then boy do we have the auction for you.
The sunglasses Walker was wearing on the day he died -- as well as a fire extinguisher that was allegedly used to try and save Walker's life -- are now up for auction on BidAMI.com.
The seller claims he was at the crash scene last November looking to help ... but cops kept him away. He nosed around once the wreckage was cleared ... and that's when he says he found the sunglasses in the bushes, though he says he didn't realize their significance until photos surfaced of Walker earlier in the day ... wearing the same glasses.
It is unclear how the seller acquired the fire extinguisher or a piece of debris from the crash, but they are both included in the auction as well.
As of this morning, there have been three bids and the price has reached $605.00 and eternal damnation.

Divorce Didn't Ruin Me ...
I'm Dating a Rich African Dictator's Son
3/13/2014 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porsha Williams isn't wanting for cash after her ex-husband screwed her over in their divorce -- sources tell TMZ, she's now knocking boots with the exorbitantly wealthy son of an African dictator ... notorious for human rights violations.
According to sources, Porsha has been seeing 42-year-old Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea ... since 1979.
Mbasogo (the father) is known as one of Africa's most brutal and corrupt rulers -- not only for having his predecessor executed and political opponents tortured, but for pillaging his own country's oil wealth ... while its people live in abject poverty.
And his son is reaping the benefits -- living like a king in Malibu and all around the world.
We're told Mangue (the son) has been showering Porsha with expensive gifts for the last month -- Louboutin shoes, Chanel ... even a Rolls Royce -- and Porsha has been posting photos of the gifts on Instagram.
Sources say the romance is pretty new ... but it's escalating fast -- we're told Mangue is currently looking to buy Porsha a multimillion-dollar house in ATL.
We reached out to Porsha's conscience for comment -- so far, no word back.
After Suspected Drunk Driver Plows Through Pedestrians

Five of the injured were listed as critical. The two that died were riding a moped that was hit by the motorist.
According to police, the driver then struck a cab before crashing. He then tried to flee on foot, but he was tracked down by an officer and shocked with a stun gun before being taken into custody.
Some of the victims were hit in front of The Mohawk, where Tyler the Creator was headlining.
The driver now faces two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle.
Sex Tape to Go to Highest Bidder
But There's a Catch
3/13/2014 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The person who has a copy of the Johnny Carson sex tape now wants to sell it ... but potential buyers have to blindly cough up a fortune just for the chance to see it.
The attorney repping the guy who has the tape tells TMZ ... his client will hold viewing parties for people interested in buying the 70's home video showing long-dong Carson banging one of his wives.
Now get this -- in order to even see the tape ... prospective buyers must make a blind bid. The seller is not setting a price. He'll just review what's on the table.
And it gets even crazier. To qualify to see the tape, prospective buyers must show they're serious by depositing their bids into an escrow account. And, like Carson's schlong, only huge offerings will make the cut.
After the screening, prospective buyers will be invited to up the ante.
And one more string attached. The winning bidder must sign a document saying it cannot be sold commercially -- it's solely for a private collection. And, if the buyer violates that ... he or she will get socked with a huge financial penalty.
Carson's junk better be at least 11 for all this.

Things are looking up for newly separated Matt Roloff ... a dating company catering to little people wants to plaster his adorable face on its website and in return help him score a fresh piece for himself.
DateALittle.com made the offer to the "Little People, Big World" star after news broke he separated from his wife. Matt -- who's like the George Clooney of little people -- has a deal on the table to become the official spokesperson.
The company's pitch to Matt is that there's something far more valuable than monetary compensation ... the opportunity to find a new relationship.
Fact is ... DateALittle.com has delivered in the past. It's where Bill and Jen Arnold, from "The Little Couple," first connected ... and lived happily ever after.
If Matt rejects the offer, they'll reach out to Amy, which we're guessing won't go over well.
