Female Hacked Celebs Google is Evil They Support Perverted Predators

10/2/2014 6:12 AM PDT
Breaking News


5:48 P.M. PDT --
A Google rep tells TMZ ... "We've removed tens of thousands of pictures -- within hours of the requests being made -- and we have closed hundreds of accounts.  The Internet is used for many good things.  Stealing people’s private photos is not one of them."

Google
is a hypocritical company that victimizes women and enables "habitual pervert predators"... so claim more than a dozen female celebrities who are now threatening to sue.

The women are outraged that Google refuses to remove the various hacked nude photos from their search engines and various sites.  

In a scathing, threatening letter -- obtained by TMZ -- Marty Singer, the legal pitbull repping the women, lashes out at Google, claiming their motto, "Don't be evil" is a sham because that's exactly what they are by turning a blind eye to the hacking.

Singer -- who threatens Google with a $100 MILLION lawsuit if the pics aren't taken down stat -- says Google has distinguished itself from Twitter and other companies by "perpetuating the despicable conduct of these habitual pervert predators."

He even compares Google to the NFL scandal, saying, "Like the NFL, which turned a blind eye while its players assaulted and victimized women and children, Google has turned a blind eye while its sites repeatedly exploit and victimize these women."

Google ... you've been warned.

Stephanie Seymour's socialite son may think about a move from NY to Colorado ... because then he wouldn't have gotten busted for weed.

The fine shouldn't pose much of a problem ... his dad's a billionaire businessman.

CBS NAILED For $10 MIL in 'NCIS' Death Lawsuit

9/30/2014 5:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The family of a security guard who was killed on the set of "NCIS" won a $10.4 million judgment against CBS ... TMZ has learned.

A CBS production van that was transporting "NCIS" crew members crashed into 52-year old security guard Julio Villamariona after the driver had a medical emergency and lost control.  The guard died in an ambulance en route to the hospital.

CBS admitted during the lawsuit the driver had a medical condition it should have known about, so the trial was really about the amount of damages the family would collect.


Tuesday afternoon a jury decided ... and gave Julio's widow and 3 adult children a total of $10.4 million. 

The family's lawyer, Brian Panish, says, "I am so proud of the surviving family members and the jury for standing up to a powerful entity like CBS."

Jermaine Dupri My Ex-Friend Is an Ungrateful Bastard ... Who Ruined My Hummer!

9/30/2014 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE
Jermaine Dupri lavished his friend with a free place to live, a free car, free studio time and several other gifts ... and the guy repaid him by trashing his hummer and then having the audacity to sue him.

Dupri says Taddrick Mingo is a leach who did nothing but take, take take:

-- free recording studio time
-- 4 years free rent in a 2 bedroom condo
-- use of Dupri's Hummer
-- free computer
-- referrals so Mingo could get studio work

Jermaine says Mingo then turned around and sued him ... claiming he worked as Dupri's assistant but never got paid.  

So now Dupri has fired back with his own lawsuit, claiming Mingo was NEVER his assistant. And Jermaine wants money for the financial beating he took when he sold the whip at a loss.

As for why Dupri showered Mingo with gifts over a period of years ... he never says.

Taylor Swift Sued Chauffeurs Can Only Speak to Me Sometimes

9/29/2014 10:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift apparently needed a motorcade normally reserved for heads of state ... and she wanted to be treated like one ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Taylor's company made a deal this past June with a chauffeur service to whisk her around NYC.  The company made all sorts of demands, including guidelines on when the driver was allowed to talk to Taylor.

But it didn't stop there. Taylor's director of security told the chauffeur service to get 2 additional whips. The service obliged by leasing 2, brand spanking new Chevy Suburban SUVs.

So imagine the chauffeur's dismay when 3 weeks after making the various demands Taylor's people pulled the plug, leaving the limo company holding the bag on the lease.

The chauffeurs are now suing Taylor's company for all sorts of losses.

Her company is radio silent ... it's unclear if they were allowed to speak with her for comment.

Drone Pilot Arrested Judge Grounds Flyboy After Beach Buzz

9/27/2014 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


Flying drones all over L.A. is all fun and games until somebody winds up in jail -- which is exactly what happened to a guy who pissed off cops AND a judge with his flyboy antics.

TMZ broke the story ... Tom Zebra was cited for flying a drone over the San Pedro harbor -- because L.A. law forbids flying unmanned aircraft around a public beach. 

The drone was confiscated and Saulmon was ordered to appear in court last Monday ... but TMZ has learned he showed up on Tuesday instead. No bueno -- the judge immediately threw him in jail and set bail at $30K.

As we first told you ... Saulmon and his drone have been on LAPD's radar since July, when he buzzed one of their parking lots. The city is considering new laws to control drone activity.

Zebra was released from jail Saturday morning.


Amber Rose Scores More than a Mil in Prenup

9/26/2014 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

We've learned there are 2 additional pages to the prenup ... and in them Wiz agrees to pay Amber spousal support in addition to the one-time payout.  We're told the support is "modest" -- slightly more than $5K a month.
Amber Rose will score more than a million bucks from Wiz Khalifa ... based on a long prenup she demanded before getting married ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with both Amber and Wiz tell TMZ ... Amber made numerous demands in the prenup ... which is more than 8 pages long.  

TMZ broke the divorce story ... including the fact that Amber wants the prenup enforced. We're told it's because she will get more money in her 1-year-marriage than she would without a prenup.

Cheating is IRRELEVANT ... California is a no-fault state and there's no mention of infidelity in the document.

Likewise ... the prenup does not mention custody, and for good reason -- the judge always makes that decision, based on the best interests of the child. Amber is asking for full legal and physical custody.

Master P Rapper Becomes Law Firm Pitchman Make 'Em Say Uhhhh-bject!

9/25/2014 12:26 PM PDT

You get run over by a tractor?  Beaten at the bar?  Butchered at the beauty salon?  Well Master P will hook you up with the right lawyers.

For some inexplicable reason, the legendary rapper has become the TV pitchman for the law firm of Winton & Hiestand Law Group ... a personal injury firm in Louisville, Kentucky.  

Chauncey Hiestand tells TMZ ... he and P became friends after Hurricane Katrina.  P is from New Orleans, and lots of people from his hometown moved to Kentucky afterward.

Hiestand says Master P's pitch was a gesture of appreciation.

The spot sounds genuine ... until then end, when P drops his trademark "Uhhh."

It's actually hilarious and somewhat awesome.

Robin Thicke & Pharrell Williams If We Stole Songs, So Did Beethoven!

9/25/2014 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you're gonna throw the book at Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for stealing music ... you gotta take down none other than Ludwig van Beethoven too -- that's Robin and Pharrell's argument anyway. 

The "Blurred Lines" duo just filed new court docs in their fight to prove the song is not a rip-off of Marvin Gaye's, "Got to Give It Up" -- pointing out several differences between notes in the songs ... and also backing up the bus over LvB. 

In the docs, they admit 'Blurred' starts with repeated notes, just like Marvin's song does -- but also like Beethoven does in his famous 5th Symphony. All together now ... da-da-da-dum!

Their point -- musicians have been using repeating tones since the dawn of time ... or at least since 200 years ago when Beethoven was doing his thing.

They also say 'Blurred' is more similar to the '60s song,  "Working In a Coal Mine" ... than it is to 'Give It Up.'" Countdown to Allen Toussaint's lawsuit.
