Jermaine Jones ...

The Daddy Issue

3/13/2012 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.)

Soy is not as good for children as it might be for menopausal women. It's proven that soy formula causes children to start puberty earlier (especially little girls start menstruating earlier). If soy formula causes that in children, can you imagine what soy cheese etc does? Soy ALSO suppresses the thyroid.. and the thyroid regulates many many things in our bodies I agree the stuff in McDs and all other fast food is not good for you but There's is something to be said for cooking the way our grandparents used to cook (from scratch) and NOT buying processed food

If that dead-air is being aired live on this new TMZ show. It definitely needs a new concept. Pretty lame.

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....

I have been watching the last 2 days and I have to admit that I don't like this new TMZ live show. You have taken away what made you so great. The off the wall comments and free flowing conversation. I see Harvey cutting people off during topics and it feels like every other tv show. Please go back to the way you were. Also one of my biggest complaints is the mic going off during commercial, WHAT IS THAT ABOUT!!!! You guys are great during that time. PLEASE GO BACK TO WHAT YOU WERE AND FIRE FOX!!!! Mike is such a Kardashian defender. Does he want to be part of the family? Bring

TMZ has entered that area where the show execs think they have a wider audience than they really do. TMZ audience is really not as big as they think. This format will fail shortly.

Gotta agree about TMZ Live becoming something I no longer enjoy. If TMZ gets its mojo back somebody give me a call. Until then, peace out.

That's IT! I have had it with turning the sound on and off like you're trying to keep the viewers from hearing some breaking story. I am done with TMZ.
