EXCLUSIVE

Janice Dickinson Bill Cosby Rape
These are pictures of Bill Cosby taken by Janice Dickinson, just before he allegedly date raped her.

Dickinson says she went to Lake Tahoe in 1982 to see Cosby perform. She says the comedian told her to come to the hotel and he'd help her with her career.  

Dickinson told ET during dinner he gave her a pill and some wine, and the last thing she remembered was Cosby "in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me." She says the next morning she was naked with semen between her legs.

Dickinson tells TMZ ... she took these Polaroids of Cosby in the hotel room after she took the pill but before she blacked out. You see Cosby lounging in the colorful patchwork robe, with a 40 of malt liquor by his side.

'I'm Not Gay No More' Guy

Church Threatens Legal Action

Over Song

11/21/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120-andrew-caldwell-youtube-01

The church where the "I'm Not Gay No More" guy went straight is not only intolerant toward gays, they have an intense dislike for people who steal their tunes.

The Church of God in Christ insists Andrew Caldwell call in the lawyers because their now-famous parishioner jazzed up his hilarious moment with background singers and released it on iTunes.  

A church honcho says they're ordering him to stop hawking the song partly because they own the audio, but also because they feel Andrew is making a mockery of the service ... and that's hilarious.

But Andrew's calling BS, telling TMZ  he's copyrighted the song. And he says it's his voice and he -- not even God -- can claim ownership of it.

So maybe the dispute will be settled by a higher power -- Judge Judy.

Dean Cain

Yeah, I Took Brooke Shields' Virginity

11/21/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dean Cain Brooke Shields VirginityDean Cain says Brooke Shields is right on the money when she says she was deflowered by Superman and was so flummoxed by the experience she ran screaming down the hall naked.

Our photog got Dean at LAX Wednesday ... and asked about Brooke's new book in which she describes in great detail losing her virginity to him.  

Dean's a gentleman and is cautious at first -- not having read the book -- but when our guy told him Brooke had good things to say he was down with the whole story.

BTW ... our guy referred to it as her "experience" with Dean, and he made it clear ... they had a whole lot more than an experience.

'Ink Master' Contestant

And Got Busted

EXCLUSIVE

Maddie la Belle Arrested
"Ink Master" contestant Madison "Maddie la Belle" Loftis tattooed her boyfriend, but not with ink ... with her fists, and she ended up in the slammer.

Maddie -- who appeared on Season 3 -- tells TMZ she got into a fight that started with words and ended with fists. She says it was mutual combat, but she's the one who called the cops.

Greensboro cops tell us when they arrived Maddie was fine, but her boyfriend had a swollen eye.

Maddie's man didn't want to press charges, but North Carolina requires cops to arrest someone who inflicts injury during a domestic fight ... so she got busted for misdemeanor assault and battery.

Maddie says all is forgiven and they're back together.

As for whether she would punch him again, Maddie told us, "Every day, all day."

'Party Down South' Star

Drinking And Driving

... It's Sorta My Thing

EXCLUSIVE

Josh Murray DUI
The cast of "Party Down South" has a love for booze in mass quantities ... and they've racked up another in a long list of DUIs.

PDS star Josh Murray was pulled over in Rankin County, Mississippi early Saturday. He flunked the field sobriety test and went to jail for DUI and driving with a suspended license.

It's the second time Josh has been popped for DUI. He faces jail time, and license suspension for 2 years.

PDS has a rich history of alcohol-related hijinks. Mattie Breaux was busted for DUI earlier this year, Ryan Richards bonged an entire bottle of Jägermeister, and Lyle Boudreaux allegedly stole a credit card so he could keep his binge on during Mardi Gras.

The good news ... at least nobody pissed themselves this time.

'Pregnant Man'

Busted for Stalking [Update]

11/20/2014 6:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120-pregnant-man-mug-shot-TMZ-02The famous 'pregnant man' Thomas Beatie, was arrested Thursday for felony stalking -- according to cops he's engaged in some major spy games to track an ex over the last couple years.

Beatie was taken into custody by Phoenix police officers around 11:30 AM. He's currently being held in Maricopa County Jail without bail on one charge of stalking an ex -- at this point, it's unclear if it's an ex girlfriend or his estranged wife.

Cops say the alleged victim found a GPS device hidden in her car ... and told Phoenix PD she suspected Beatie put it there. When detectives contacted him ... they say Beatie admitted putting the device there 2 years ago -- and even said he had replaced the battery in the unit several times.

Earlier this year ... Thomas accused his estranged wife, Nancy, of verbally assaulting him and his new girlfriend -- and a judge issued a restraining order.

We called Nancy ... and she would not confirm or deny she's the woman Beatie allegedly tagged with the GPS.

Armie Hammer

Boxes Ex-NFL Badass ...

Gets BLACK EYE

11/20/2014 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120-armie-hammer-black-eye-tmz-0Armie Hammer thinks he's such a badass boxer ... he dared to step in the ring against a former NFL linebacker whose nickname was "Lights Out" -- which explains the shiner on Armie's eye.

TMZ Sports got this shot of Armie's bruised face after his sparring match with ex-Chargers star Shawne Merriman -- who's 6'4" and 280 lbs! Nonetheless, we're told Hammer's the one who sought out Merriman as a sparring partner.

The bout went down Wednesday at Unbreakable Performance -- a new gym on the Sunset Strip owned and run by ex-Bears star Brian Urlacher and Jay Glazer from FOX Sports. We're told Armie's been training with Glazer for several months ... and word is everyone in the gym was stoked Armie wanted to challenge Shawne.

We're guessing Armie's agent isn't so stoked about his swollen face -- which makes it even cooler he's doing it. Can't wait for the rematch!

My Stalker

Thinks We're Soulmates

EXCLUSIVE

1120_ryan_gosling_tmz
Ryan Gosling just got a restraining order against a woman he says has been stalking him for 3 months because she believes she's his "twin flame."

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Gosling says Grace Marie Del Villar has been sending harassing emails and packages ... in one case she sent a torn-out page from a magazine featuring Eva Mendes and stapled a copy of her contact info to the page.

She has also bombarded the inbox of Ryan's sister with messages, in one case saying, "I am kicking your brother's head."

The tipping point came on Oct. 28th, when Del Villar traveled from NYC to L.A. and showed up at Gosling family residence, rang the security gate and said she was, "Ryan's twin." She left a doll catalog at the gate.

She's ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ryan, Eva, daughter Esmeralda.

His sister Mandi also got a restraining order against the stalker.

Marlon Wayans

I Call All My Friends N Word

Even White Chicks

11/20/2014 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans N Word
Marlon Wayans
has just filed legal docs defending an Instagram post in which he called an extra from his movie, "Haunted House 2"  a n**** and a Cleveland lookalike ... saying the n word is a term of endearment and the dude DOES look like Cleveland.

Marlon says in the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- he grew up in the projects of NYC, where black men and women frequently used the n word (with both an a and an r) as a colloquial term of camaraderie. 

Wayans says he doesn't restrict use of the word to his black friends, bragging in his declaration he calls his "Haunted House 2" co-star Jaime Pressly the n word.  And get this ... Jaime filed her own declaration saying, "Mr. Wayans has addressed me as n**** in the past, and frequently uses it as a term of endearment with his friends and family."

As for the photo that triggered the lawsuit ... Marlon says it's ridiculous. Pierre Daniel posed for the pic and even has a scene in the movie where he's referred to as Cleveland.

So separated at birth.

'American Idol'

Racial Suit Dismissed

You Snooze You Lose, Judge Says

11/20/2014 2:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1120-idol-ten-contestants-sue-02

"American Idol" is NOT racist against Black contestants -- the lawsuit filed by 10 former Idol wannabes who claimed they were cut over race ... has been dismissed, but mostly on a technicality.

TMZ broke the story ... the contestants claimed "Idol" producers dug up criminal charges from their pasts -- including crimes for which they were never convicted -- and this was done strictly because they're Black.

According to new court docs, however ... all but 1 of them waited too long to file their cases, and since the statute of limitations ran out ... they had no leg to stand on. A judge tossed the cases.

The one who DID file in time -- Chris Golightly ... had his case dismissed when "Idol" proved to the court the reason he was booted was because he'd violated a show rule by being in a band.

Idol -- 10 ... Plaintiffs -- 0
