Justin Bieber

Nude Pics Not THAT Bad ...

'Cause I'm That Big

10/9/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_justin_bieber_tmzJustin Bieber's lawyers are barking about three nude pics taken of him on vacation in Bora Bora, but we know Justin isn't all that pissed because the shots show just how ... GIFTED he is.

Multiple sources close to Bieber tell TMZ he was upset paparazzi, armed with telephoto lenses, snapped the photos of him butt (and other parts) naked frolicking with Jayde Pierce. We're told he thought it was a total invasion of his privacy.

We saw it the same way, and decided NOT to post the images. But our sources say Justin's anger faded when the pics went viral ... for one seemingly larger than average reason: Bieber's a really big deal, and we're told he's happy the world knows it now.  

As we reported, JB's lawyers threatened media outlets that published the pics. We're told his legal team was just doing its job ... sending the message that Justin's not okay with the violation.

But reality is, there's almost zero chance Justin sues ... 'cause as they say, size matters.

1009-jared-leto-outfit-splashAin't always pretty, but Jared Leto wears whatever the hell he wants, and it looks good ... on him. Usually.

Leto was cruising around NYC, still sporting a pink 'do ... which we're guessing is left over from shooting "Suicide Squad." 

Based on the multi-colored pants and poncho, someone might have raided the wardrobe trailer.


Malcolm-Jamal Warner

What Saddens Me Most About Cosby Scandal

... The Show's Legacy

breaking news


Malcolm-Jamal Warner weirdly groused his greatest sorrow over the Bill Cosby sex scandal is the legacy of the show.

Warner said in an interview, "My biggest concern is when it comes to images of people of color on television and film, no matter what ... negative stereotypes of people of color, we've always had "The Cosby Show" to hold up against that. And the fact that we no longer have that, that's the thing that saddens me most because in a few generations the Huxtables will have been just a fairy tale."

He did say he felt sorry for the women whom Cosby allegedly victimized. But his overriding concern seems to be the show.

Different strokes ...

0908-bella-hadid-getty-01Bella Hadid and her brother Anwar have both suffered from Lyme disease ... the same disease her mother Yolanda Foster has battled for several years ... and almost no one knew until Thursday night.

Yolanda made the announcement when she received the "Power of One" award in NYC.

Jeremy Renner's Ex

I'm Afraid Our Kid ...

Will Drown At His House

10/9/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_jeremy-renner_Sonni-Pacheco_tmz_splashJeremy Renner's estranged wife thinks his pool is a death trap for their 2-year-old daughter because he won't install a safety fence ... so she's fighting him in court over it.  

Sonni Pacheco's attorney was in court Wednesday in L.A., and told the judge Jeremy's koi pond and pool lack protective fencing. Sonni's afraid little Ava could fall in and drown before Jeremy gets to her.

Renner's side doesn't think a fence is needed because his laser detection system will alarm him if Ava were to fall into the pool or the pond. 

They're also fighting over social media -- Sonni's uncomfortable with Jeremy posting pics of Ava.

We're told the custody battle's gotten so hostile, with neither side budging ... the exes are now willing to go to trial.

The Kids ARE Mine!

Paternity Docs Sent to Wrong Earl Simmons

10/9/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-dmx-tmz-01-DMX almost got a free pass on his latest paternity case, because the docs went to the wrong person ... someone unlucky enough to share X's real name!

We're told Earl Simmons from Massachusetts got docs in the mail from the Florida Dept. of Revenue, informing him he'd have to start paying child support to 2 of DMX's kids.

1008-sub-dmx-tmz-01-Yadira Borrego -- X's ex -- tells TMZ she filed the docs to establish paternity with the state, so DMX can pay child support through the proper legal channels ... and avoid another jail stint. She says he already supports their kids, but it's been off the books.

The person who's really screwed is the faux DMX, who works in the biomedical field. Poor guy's got 2 kids of his own, and we're told Florida is insisting he take a DNA test to prove he's not the real Ruff Ryder.

Damon Dash

Judge Sides With Ex-Wife

... You've Got A Weed Problem

10/8/2015 5:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-dash-roy-tmz-getty-01Damon Dash was shut down in court Thursday during a custody hearing for his two kids, and a judge made it very clear ... Damon hurt his chances by smoking too much pot. 

Dash wanted an LA judge to drop the monitored visits he currently has with seven-year-old Tallulah for regular visitation and overnight stays. Dash's ex-wife Rachel Roy claims he smokes too much weed around their kids ... and during one visit they ate Damon's pot-laced cake and rice krispies.

In the end, the judge agreed with Rachel. He upheld the monitored visits and ordered Damon stay away from the green stuff for 24 hours before each visit.

We're told Damon was extremely upset and went off on the judge and was almost dragged out of the court. Big difference from 24 hours ago, when he was still optimistic about his chances.
