Jermaine Jones ...

The Daddy Issue

031312_tmzlive

"American Idol" contestant Jermaine Jones is at the center of a big mess -- did his father really abandon him? JJ's dad says he's always been around, but folks at 'Idol' were told a different story. So, who's lying? Decide after you hear the facts straight from our reporters?

Plus, Shanna Moakler joins us -- are her and Travis Barker's kids cool with growing up vegan? No pizza??!! Also ... Rihanna's racy (and possibly racist) tweet -- we'll tell you if Chris Brown's new GF should really be worried.

(Oh, and BTW -- we hear ya ... tomorrow we'll leave our mics open during commercial breaks so you can hear all the fun.)

I think Russell Brand is awesome. Anyone would snap after months of being hounded by aggressive paps.

Remember when TMZ Live didn't suck? It used to be a fun show where they answered viewer questions and just had fun. Now it's annoying and over-produced. I miss the good old days.

You're talking about Russell Brand & the phone snatching - whatever happened with the Chris Brown phone-snatching incident?

Shanna's kids are obviously tortured. They like, have to like, listen to that voice, like 24/7!

Your new format sucks now. I miss the original TMZ Live with lawyer Friday and the occasional show broadcast outside on the roof.

Harvey... i like the old tmz live....where u used to get more into the topic...and actually let people call..and read tweets and messages....go back to the old ways...and we would also be able to hear you during the breaks...which would make it worth it to watch live instead of the podcast....
