Suspending Ties ...

During Child Porn Investigation

51 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Subway and Jared Fogle are parting ways -- for now, at least ... they've agreed to a mutual suspension of their relationship during the child pornography investigation.

In announcing the suspension, Subway added, "Jared continues to cooperate with authorities and he expects no actions to be forthcoming. Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take."

Since the FBI raid at Fogle's home this morning ... all mentions of Jared have been removed from Subway's website. Fogle has been the face of Subway for more than 15 years.

Fogle has not been arrested or charged in the FBI probe.


Miss USA

We Have Our HOSTS!

7/7/2015 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Miss USA scored 3 new hosts, and 2 of them come with beauty pageant experience ... TMZ has learned.

Reelz -- which picked up the pageant after NBC dropped it -- landed Todd Newton and Alex Wehrley to host. Alex was Miss USA Wisconsin in 2009, and Todd -- a Daytime Emmy winning TV presenter -- hosted Miss Universe in 2001.

We're also told Julie Alexandria -- an "OK! TV" host -- will be working the mic backstage for Sunday night's competition.

Original hosts Cheryl Burke, Thomas Roberts, and Jeannie Mai dropped out in the wake of pageant owner Donald Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants.


Paula Deen

Nice Twitter Repost, Ya Twit!

breaking news

0707_paula-deen_instagramPaula Deen's hitting the delete button on her social media manager for re-posting an old photo of her son Bobby in "brown face" ... which naturally reminded everyone of Paula's racist scandal. 

The photo -- from a 2011 Halloween episode of Paula's old TV show -- showed her as Lucille Ball, and Bobby as Ricky Ricardo ... complete with way too much dark makeup.

A rep for Deen tried to explain the faux pas, saying, "Paula immediately had this picture taken down as soon as she saw the post and apologizes to all who were offended" -- and the unnamed social media person was 86'd from Paula Deen Ventures.

Welcome to damage control Tuesday ... said Paula, Subway, and Tyga.


Cody Simpson

My Mom's Gonna Be On 'RHOBH' ...

IF I Play Ball

Exclusive Details

Cody Simpson is getting dragged into his mom’s reality TV dreams, 'cause 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' wants Angie Simpson on the show ... as a package deal with Cody.

We’re told Angie's still in talks because producers want to make sure Cody can come on too. They think the Australian pop star would help draw a younger audience. But the clock's ticking -- producers plan to start shooting within a couple weeks.

The show wants to work up a dynamic between Angie and Yolanda Foster ... Gigi Hadid’s mom. The hope is they might play matchmaker and try to get Cody and Gigi back together.

Pretty sure Joe Jonas ain't signing off on this plan.


I Didn't Send Pics of My Junk ...

But Someone Else Did

7/7/2015 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0626-tyga-tmz-01Tyga and his lawyers are gunning for the people they say released pics of his exposed penis -- and the wild part is ... there's a Caitlyn Jenner connection to this whole story.

Tyga's lawyer, Lee Hutton, tells TMZ he believes the rapper is the victim of a conspiracy designed to "maliciously shame" him. While the photos are authentic -- you can see some of his tattoos -- Tyga's lawyer believes the person he sent them to betrayed him ... and used them to manufacture a fake story.

The blog that posted the pics is claiming Tyga sent them to a transgender model.

Hutton thinks that's also offensive because ... "The allegations are false and socially irresponsible during a time when many Americans are celebrating equality."

It's a clear reference to Caitlyn and the Supreme Court decision, and Tyga and Hutton's point is -- don't use transgender issues as a punchline.


Scrubbing Jared From Website

7/7/2015 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0707-jared-getty-02Seems Subway is losing its taste for Jared Fogle in the wake of a child porn investigation ... 'cause the sandwich giant is already scrubbing traces of the pitchman from its official website. 

As of moments ago, Subway's website no longer connects to "Jared's Journey" -- an entire section devoted to Jared, his weight loss experience ... and fun games and interviews with Jared and celebrities. 

0707-subway-jared-01The Jared's Journey page also included a blurb about Jared's foundation -- which has been under fire ever since the former director Russel Taylor was arrested for producing and possessing child porn. 

The FBI raided Jared's home in Indiana in connection to the investigation this morning ... and now, it seems Subway has wasted no time distancing itself from the spokesperson.

The Jared's Journey section -- which had been active all morning long -- now redirects back to the Subway homepage ... though Jared's image still exists in various parts of the Subway website. 

We reached out to Subway for comment -- so far, no word back.

Kourtney Kardashian

Blindsided by Scott Disick Pics

With Other Woman

7/7/2015 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick had their issues -- Scott's partying and substance abuse -- but seeing photos of him with another woman caught her totally by surprise ... TMZ has learned. 

According to our sources ... Kourtney had long ago agreed to stick with Scott and work with him as he battled substance abuse problems -- mostly for the sake of their kids. 

But we're told infidelity was never an issue between them ... so she was floored by the pics of Scott getting touchy-feely with celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli in Monte Carlo. 

We're told Kourtney also fears Chloe isn't the only girl Scott has cozied up with lately. 

As TMZ first reported, Kourtney ended things with Scott after the Monte Carlo incident ... and he hasn't been to their family home in Calabasas in over a month.



Jerry Weintraub

Bowel Rupture Triggered Two Heart Attacks

7/7/2015 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Jerry Weintraub died after a 30-hour hospital stay that ended with a bowel rupture that triggered 2 heart attacks ... family sources tell TMZ.

We're told Weintraub was staying at the Biltmore Hotel in Montecito over the weekend. He attended a 4th of July bbq Saturday night, and began feeling ill shortly thereafter. He thought he had contracted food poisoning, but things got worse as the evening progressed ... and at 3 AM Sunday his partner, Susie, called 911.

Our sources say doctors quickly determined Weintraub had a bowel obstruction. Weintraub got a CT scan shortly after he was admitted, but we're told doctors determined there was nothing alarming.

Weintraub laid in the hospital bed for 30 hours, but we're told doctors were still not able to identify the problem. Weintraub -- who hated hospitals after nearly dying 6 years ago from an infection after back surgery -- insisted at around 4 AM Monday that he be discharged. We're told the staff told him he could not be discharged and continued to monitor him.

Just after 6 AM Monday Weintraub had a heart attack, and a 2nd CT scan revealed he had suffered a bowel rupture. Doctors don't know when the rupture occurred, but it sent poison throughout his body. Weintraub was taken to ICU, where he suffered a 2nd heart attack, 2 hours after the first.

We're told prior to the initial heart attack, Weintraub was not only conscious ... but joking with people in the room.

As we reported, Weintraub died at the hospital at 12:45 PM Monday.

George Lopez is taking a stand against Donald Trump -- and asking all Latinos to boycott him -- but also admits Trump's "punking" all the other Republican candidates, and might even win.

Lopez blasted Trump Monday afternoon in Bev Hills ... telling us he's personally done with Trump -- he won't golf at his courses anymore, and wouldn't even consider replacing him on "Celebrity Apprentice" because he's not taking Trump's leftovers. 

Watch, George clearly ain't voting Trump, but acknowledges there are plenty of people who will -- and even warns Donald ... Jeb isn't the Bush he needs to worry about.

Jared from Subway

FBI Raid Home in

Child Porn Investigation

7/7/2015 5:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0707-jared-fogle-twitter-02update_graphic_red_bar9:50 AM PT -- Subway released a statement saying, "We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely."

7:30 AM PT -- We've obtained the criminal complaint against Taylor ... and it says police recovered a 4 GB thumb drive and his employer, the Jared Foundation, was listed in a file name. Inside that file was a folder labeled, "Good stuff." Cops found a bunch of child pornography in that folder.

Since Taylor mixed work files with child porn ... it could explain why the FBI is searching Fogle's home. Jared himself, is not mentioned in the docs police found at Taylor's home office.

update_grey_gray_barSubway spokesperson Jared Fogle's home was raided Tuesday morning by FBI agents conducting a child pornography investigation.

Jared was seen walking into his home outside Indianapolis with one of the agents ... and investigators have a truck parked in his driveway. We've learned Indiana State Police are also on the scene.

Russel Taylor, the former director of Fogle's charity foundation -- which is unaffiliated with Subway -- was arrested in April for possessing and producing child porn. Investigators reportedly found more than 500 videos in his home.

Fogle said his foundation was severing all ties with Taylor immediately after the arrest. It's unclear if this morning's raid is connected to the charges against Taylor.
