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.)

I can't believe you guys did not say more about Donald Trump Jr killing an ELEPHANT who in this world thinls it it ok to kill an ELEPHANT. Im disappointed in you guys who claim to be such animal lovers.

Why Do You Mute The Mic In-Between Breaks Now? Instead Of Talking To Us Online Viewers.

What has happened to TMZ live??? It feels way too over-manufactured now. What happened to answering questions and to Lawyer Friday? What happened to the guy who was fun and looked a little like Woody Harrelson? Charles every single day??? It's better than Mike, but variety would be nice.
Enough with the Kardashian worship too. Have you seen your polls? You are out in la la land in that support.

I'm glad I got my call in recently to TMZ, about a week ago. Because now I realise phone ins will be limited and too many topics will be covered. Charles also seems to like Harvey more since the LA fox deal, interesting. I assume that's cause Charles got a nice fat pay raise-good for him. Don't let TMZ live get overproduced. Yeah it was ridiculous running this show on radio and Harvey doesnt have to say all that crap on each break.

I just read these, and I AGREE!! I miss the OLD TMZ LIVE...I miss the cheesy Lawyer Friday song, and Jason, and I absolutely think it is way over-produced. The best part about it was the spontaneity. Now it's just awful.

This is the Truth- Jermaine Jones was arrested for Domestic Violence against his boyfriend. In addition, he gave false identification to the police when he was arrested, and now has 02 Bench Warrants out for his arrest. Watch the drama when he's confronted on camera tomorrow night on Idol.....

I also miss the old days of TMZ Live, when the guys would have a nice flowing show outside and Harvey would tell a funny story for 5 minutes. I think there should be a variety of co-hosts. I don't care for Charles, but think Mike is funny and changing co-hosts would be a way to please everyone. I also think the show should only be half an hour, anything more is too much time.

Ms. Moakler should look into soy some more, especially if she has daughters. Soy is a phytoestrogen and she should do further research how soy affects the developing body and hormones.

I think you guys ARE speeding through the topics, at least it sounds like it and in the process some of the banter between you and Charles has been lost.......that's half the charm guys cause sometimes you mention little side stuff that's interesting or funny. I find the bottom banner together with the side banner is too busy and distracting. I hate to say it but I think it should be just the side banner - which is a shame cause I love seeing Max lol and the banner blocks my view. Again - no need to rush through the stories you didn't before and still kept your time to 59 minutes.

SINCE JERMAINE GOT BUSTED LIEING IT WOULD BE FAIR TO BRING EVAN BACK CAUSE HE WAS THE NEXT RUNNER UP TO MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ROUND.
