Yung Berg Wanted Man Again!! ... For Missing Court Date

1/22/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Yung Berg apparently loves to learn the hard way -- not showing up to court is asking for trouble.

The 'Love & Hip Hop' star is a wanted man in Miami after missing ANOTHER court date following a weed bust. TMZ broke the story ... cops were called following an altercation in his hotel room back in October and they found 2 blunts on him. Normally, not a big deal but Berg had a 9-year-old warrant, so they arrested his ass.

He was later released, but was supposed to appear in court for his arraignment in the weed case on January 11 but -- you know how Berg's favorite game goes -- he never showed.

It's called Google Calendar, Berg.

Bill Cosby Fans Out in Philly Goes Public On a Wing And a Prayer

1/21/2018 1:33 PM PST

Bill Cosby must really like the Eagles' chances against the Vikings, 'cause he mustered up enough courage to show his face in public rockin' their gear.

The disgraced comedian resurfaced Sunday in Philly wearing an Eagles windbreaker and hat as he stopped off at a coffee shop ahead of the team's NFC Championship game.

We haven't seen much of him since his mistrial last summer, when the jury couldn't reach a verdict on charges of sexual assault. His retrial begins in April.

Prosecutors in the Cosby case asked a judge last week to allow 19 additional women to testify against him, in the hopes of establishing a pattern of sexual assault. The judge, Steven T. O'Neill, has yet to rule on the request.

Looks like Cosby's liking his chances, too, at this point ... we're sensing no shame here.

Gloria Allred SAGs, Oscars Shouldn't Go To Alleged Sexual Predators

1/21/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Voting members for award shows should factor in sexual harassment accusations in determining whether an actor wins an Oscar, SAG Award, Golden Globe, etc. ... according to attorney Gloria Allred.

There's a fierce argument about bestowing actors accused of sexual misdeeds with an award, even if they're the best in their category. Allred thinks it's not just about acting.

James Franco is up for a SAG this weekend for his role in "The Disaster Artist" after several women came forward and accused him of sexual misconduct. He skipped out on the Critics' Choice Awards after winning a Golden Globe, but he's planning on being at Sunday's SAGs.

Allred doesn't name names, but it's not hard to guess the elephants in the room.

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon stiffed members of the crew working on "She Ball" -- his movie about a women's basketball team -- but he's got a month to make it right ... or else ... according to a new legal letter.

Nick and his production company received the letter, obtained by TMZ, from a lawyer representing 8 crew members who allegedly worked on the film as drivers, grips and camera operators ... but never got paid.

According to the letter ... the 8 workers were not given their legally required meals or rest breaks, weren't paid overtime, but most importantly -- never got a check at all.

The letter warns Cannon's got 33 days to square up or further action will be taken. We reached out to Nick ... no word back, so far.

As we've reported ... Cannon's taken some heat for adding Chris Brown to his "She Ball" cast, but he defended the move to us and says his movie's going to be a must-see.

EXCLUSIVE

Roger Stone wants Donald Trump to let the American people legally toke, like he promised in the campaign -- and if Jeff Sessions is standing in the way ... smoke him out.

We got President Trump's former adviser in NYC, and he had a hot take on pot and Sessions' decision this month to reverse a hands-off approach on legalized marijuana. 

Can't say we expected this -- but Stone firmly believes Trump must fulfill his pledge and allow the states to handle their weed biz ... sans any pestering from the feds. 

Like he says ... Trump could lose big on this issue if Sessions keeps "f***ing it up." Stone says Jeff's gotta go.

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and WWE superstar Roman Reigns don't have to worry about a DEA probe into their alleged ties to a steroid dealer ... because the law is on their side.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the 3 celebs -- who were named in a phone interview of imprisoned steroids dealer, Richard Rodriguez -- won't be investigated by the DEA because the agency doesn't target alleged buyers of illegal drugs.

Instead, the DEA focuses its efforts on going after kingpins like Rodriguez -- along with other traffickers, manufacturers and distributors.

As we reported ... Wahlberg, Duhamel and Reigns were all accused by Rodriguez of using aliases to purchase 'roids. Reigns has denied the allegations, and says he has no idea who the dude is. Wahlberg has also said the accusations are false.

Rodriguez is currently facing charges for conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and money laundering.
