Miranda Kerr's body isn't the only thing that's flawless ... so's her timing, because she was officially made the new face of 7 For All Mankind jeans ... hours after she triggered a celeb scuffle.
The newly released 30-second spot is smokin' -- Miranda not only looks amazing ... she sounds SO hot.
The 7 Jeans campaign slogan is diabolically perfect: "He loves her. She loves him, but he can’t have her. She has the power. She is in control."
Helen of Troy ... so 1190 BC.

Now You Bawl
7/30/2014 2:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber has declared Instagram war on Orlando Bloom ... with a pic of the Brit dissolving into tears.
It's Bieber's second Instagram salvo ... hours after Orlando took a swing at him at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza he posted a sexy pic of Miranda Kerr and then quickly took it down.
Miranda -- the Helen of Troy in this war -- was the trigger for the bar scuffle. It's clear Orlando felt Justin was banging her while they were still man and wife.
We'd say there's no use crying over Miranda, but then again ...
Throws Punch at Justin Bieber
7/29/2014 6:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
8:30 AM PT -- We're getting different versions of what incited Orlando, and people are taking sides. One account is Justin extended his hand to Orlando, who refused it, and when Justin asked what's your problem ... Orlando mentioned Miranda. Justin then tried to walk away and that's when Orlando swung.
A second version -- Justin said something to the effect of, I had sex with your wife ... and THEN Orlando swung.
Orlando Bloom threw a punch at Justin Bieber early Wednesday morning in Ibiza ... and Justin fled the restaurant -- this according to 2 eyewitnesses.
The eyewitnesses tell TMZ ... Orlando was in Cipriani restaurant which was packed with celebs, including Paris Hilton, and Diddy.
You don't see Orlando swing, but the eyewitnesses tell us that's exactly what happened. We're told Justin ducked the punch. That's where the video starts and you hear Justin scream, "What's up bitch?"
We're told when Bieber left the crowd applauded.
The backstory is almost legendary ... Justin partied with Orlando's then-wife Miranda Kerr after a 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show in NYC and they got very VERY close. And in April of this year, Orlando was hanging out with Justin's on-and-off GF Selena Gomez. So the bad blood is flowing.
Hours after the fight ... Justin threw gasoline on the fire by posting -- then quickly deleting -- this pic of Miranda.
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
Kiefer Beef Alcohol-Related
Fox Says Hogwash
7/28/2014 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Freddie Prinze, Jr. believes alcohol made Kiefer Sutherland impossible to deal with on the set of "24" ... but a key Fox source tells TMZ Freddie's claims are BS.
Sources connected with Freddie tell TMZ ... the actor claims Kiefer would regularly show up on set drunk ... sitting in his trailer often for hours, as everyone waited. The sources say it messed with the lives of the family of cast and crew.
Freddie, we're told, claims Kiefer was temperamental and got people fired he didn't like, yet "24" producers consistently cow-towed to him ... as one source put it, "All they did was keep rewarding him."
Our sources claim Freddie was groomed to take over the series but it became such a nightmare for him he bailed.
Keifer's rep tells TMZ, "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances." The rep adds, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."
A Fox official tells TMZ ... Kiefer was "nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew." The honcho adds, "It's so out of left field, 5 years later."
The official goes on, "We wouldn't have done another '24' if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described."

BASHES KIEFER SUTHERLAND
'Most Unprofessional Dude In the World'
7/28/2014 10:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Freddie Prinze Jr. just UNLOADED on Kiefer Sutherland -- saying he HATED working with Kiefer on "24" and calling him the "most unprofessional dude in the world."
Freddie made the comments at Comic-Con -- telling ABC News Radio his experience on "24" in 2010 was so bad, he wanted to quit acting altogether.
"I did '24' ... it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."
He then turned his sights to Sutherland -- saying, "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face. I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."
In fact, Prinze Jr. still hates Kiefer so badly, he took a shot at the actor for being short -- saying, "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ's sake … but, at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do [at 24]. Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time. You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5'4."
He clearly changed his tune ... back in 2010 Prinze had nothing but good things to say about working with Kiefer.

... Or A Sex Toy!! (VIDEO)
7/24/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of New York" star Aviva Drescher doesn't have a leg to stand on ... by claiming she never used her prosthetic appendage as a weapon -- and there's video proving she's lying.
We got Drescher outside Sanctuary Hotel in NYC Tuesday night and asked about her EPIC argument on the RHONY season finale ... when she angrily detached her artificial leg and HURLED it toward Heather Thomson.
Drescher claims she wasn't trying to hurt anyone with her prosthetic projectile.
But you gotta see her reaction ... when she discovers some guys get their rocks off ... by watching women who take it off ... their leg, that is.
Billy Bob Thornton
'Cupcake Wars' Crew Can't Take a Joke
7/23/2014 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Billy Bob Thornton pissed off the cast of "Cupcake Wars" when he ripped their show -- and reality TV in general -- for being a waste of airtime, but now that they're fighting back ... he's going soft.
The actor said a mouthful about the cupcake show on his recently aired episode of "Oprah's Master Class" -- such as, "Seriously, it's not that G** damn dangerous to make a cupcake."
But last night when we caught up with Billy Bob he kinda backpedaled, and said the 'Cupcake' peeps need to chill ... he was just trying to be funny. Watch the clip though -- there is one thing he's owning. Fair to say, he won't be tuning in to Food Network anytime soon.
Thing is ... Billy's commentary WAS funny as hell. Too bad he's not standing by it.
Richard Pryor Jr.
Fires off Legal Threat ...
I'll Sue if Stepmom Goes Forward with Biopic
7/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Richard Pyror was dying and mentally incapacitated when his wife duped him into signing over the rights to his name ... so claims Pryor's son, who's trying to shut down a movie about his dad.
Richard Pryor Jr. has fired off a cease and desist letter to Jennifer Lee Pryor, demanding she stop production of the Lee Daniels directed biopic immediately.
TMZ obtained a copy of the letter in which Richard Jr. accuses Jennifer of using "illegal, fraudulent" activity to get the rights. The document isn't more specific about the alleged fraud.
Richard Jr.'s lawyer tells us her client believes Pryor was in poor mental and physical health when he signed over the rights in 2005. Pryor died in December of that year.
Jennifer has been battling Pryor's children over the film -- including who should play Pryor.
Richard Jr. is threatening legal action if the movie goes forward. We reached out to Jennifer for comment ... so far no word back.
Faux Son Drops $50 Million Lawsuit
7/22/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The comedian who kinda faked being Eddie Murphy's son has now backed off his defamation suit against Eddie ... admitting the suit was BS and pinning the blame on his dumb management.
Brando tells us he was hoodwinked into filing his $50 million defamation lawsuit, in which he claimed Eddie was threatening to destroy him with lies and even physical violence.
It's easy to understand why Eddie was pissed ... Brando changed his last name to Murphy, performed with Richard Pryor's son in the "Sons of Comedy" tour, and showed up at the coffee shop Eddie frequented, often screaming, "My father won't talk to me."
It sounds like someone scared the crap out of Brando ... and we're guessing it's Eddie's pit bull lawyer Marty Singer. So Brando dropped the case, telling us, "It was never my intention to offend Mr. Murphy."
Funny thing ... some people find $50 million lawsuits offensive.

Sherri Shepherd is scoffing at Lamar Sally calling her a hypocrite in their custody war ... telling us anyone who knows her, knows Lamar is full of BS.
Shepherd was judged today but not by Lamar ... by a real judge in a different custody fight she's having with ex-husband Jeff Tarpley over their nine-year-old son. He now wants full custody.
Sherri was mum about her fight with Sally on the way out ... but when we brought up his questioning of her Christian values ... well she just had to answer.

7/20/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hip hop producer Mally Mall played a key role in settling Drake and Chris Brown's longstanding feud ... because he brought them together at his house in Las Vegas.
When we caught up with Mally in L.A. ... he said "the past is the past" for Breezy and Drizzy, and that Rihanna's name never came up during their recording sessions in Mally's home studio.
They've come a long way from 2 years ago when they destroyed W.i.P. Nightclub in New York in an all-out brawl over RiRi -- but Mally says ... "We squashed the beef."
Mally -- who's new release "Mally's World" drops next month -- did have one comment about Rihanna "acting like a jump off."

Brody Jenner has zero relationship with Kanye West ... and that's a big reason why he didn't make the trek to Europe for Kim's wedding.
Kim's step-bro made the comments on his podcast Thursday, insisting he was not disrespecting Kim by being a no-show at her wedding but front and center at the wedding of her ex-BF Reggie Bush.
Brody says there are 2 other reasons he didn't show:
-- Short notice
-- The wedding was way far away in Paris. It was actually Florence, but whatever.
It's a good sell. You buyin'?
Loni Anderson to Burt Reynolds
Pay Your 20-Year-Old Divorce Debt, Deadbeat!
7/18/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Burt Reynolds has been divorced from Loni Anderson for 20 years ... but it's still not over, and we've learned Loni is still dogging him for nearly a quarter of a million bucks to make things right.
It was one of the most bitter divorces in the history of Hollywood. He accused her of sleeping around. She accused him of physical brutality. And there were drug allegations and lots of other things. The 5-year marriage officially ended in 1993, when Burt agreed to pay Loni $234,794.13.
Loni -- who starred in "WKRP in Cincinnati" -- says Burt paid some but still owed her $97K. He didn't pay, went into bankruptcy in the late '90s, continued to ignore the debt, and went into foreclosure, etc.
Loni went back to court and 2 months ago the judge ordered Burt to pay up once and for all. But with interest, the tab has now swelled to $154,520.98.
We contacted Burt's rep ... so far no comment.
