Signs Point to Dating
12/2/2013 10:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Seems Charlie Sheen has a brand new girlfriend ... 'cause the Warlock was open-mouth kissing a hardcore porn star over Thanksgiving weekend ... and it looks like it was more than just a hookup.
The porn star on the receiving end is 24-year-old Brett Rossi -- star of such flicks as "She Loves My Big Breasts 2" and "Bondage Tongue Bath."
The two were spotted swapping spit in Cabo a few days ago. We're told they met in L.A. last month and Charlie took her to Mexico to celebrate Thanksgiving with a few other friends.
Rossi's the classy kind of porn star too -- as far as we can tell, she doesn't really do hardcore male-female sex scenes ... mostly just solo and girl-girl stuff with the likes of Twistys and Penthouse.
As for the other women in Charlie's life -- you know, the three "Angels" he's dating -- we're told Charlie's still with them, too.
The more, the merrier.

Video has surfaced allegedly showing one of Justin Bieber's bodyguards attacking a photog's car in Australia ... and it's crazy.

Justin is not visible in the video. The photog claims the man also knifed his tires, but you can't see that in the clip.
Sources tell TMZ, the bodyguard in the video is the same bodyguard who allegedly attacked an Australian surfer the day before ... for trying to take a photo of Bieber surfing.

The man who disappeared in the case that involves a Charlie Sheen sex tape has been found ... and law enforcement sources tell us, he told cops he was KIDNAPPED. And, we've learned the LAPD has launched a criminal investigation into the kidnapping allegations.
Darwin Vela was located at 2 PM PT today, after vanishing Tuesday as he took his dog for a walk in South L.A. We're told Vela flagged down someone on the street and that person called 911.
As we first reported ... Vela and another man, Ricardo Orozco, went to Sheen's reps a while back and said they had a Charlie Sheen sex tape and wanted to know how much the tape would be worth -- i.e., extortion.
Orozco was arrested for allegedly stealing computers owned by Nic Cage's baby mama and law enforcement sources say they believe one of the computers contained the sex tape. Orozco was arrested and charged with burglary.
Vela was scheduled to testify in Orozco's preliminary hearing Thursday but on Tuesday, he left his house to walk his Chocolate Lab and a short time later the dog came back with human blood on its leash and was freaked out.
We do not know if Vela was injured. One law enforcement source says there were injuries but we can't be more specific. Cops are about to interview him.

Sorry, I Never Met You
11/19/2013 8:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The President of Mexico just laid el smack down on Justin Bieber -- calling BS on the pop star after JB claimed the two had met before his concert this week, but Justin claims it was all an honest mistake.
The drama began when Bieber went to Twitter on Monday and wrote, "just met some amazing mexican beliebers and the presidente of mexico and his familia."
Problem is, he didn't meet El Commander in Chief Enrique Pena Nieto ... and Nieto's office went right back to Twitter to clear his name ... denying the meeting ever took place.
Sources close to Justin tell TMZ ... it was an honest mistake ... because Justin was told that he had a meeting arranged with the "President's family."
When Bieber met the group, which was surrounded by security and arrived in an official-looking motorcade, he was under the impression he was meeting the numero uno family.

OUT OF REHAB
On Community Service Beat
11/14/2013 12:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown is out of rehab ... because he has something more pressing ... community service.
TMZ first reported ... Brown checked into a Malibu rehab facility for anger management 16 days ago ... after a street brawl in Washington D.C. in which he allegedly punched a guy in the face.
At the time ... we were told Brown could be in rehab for up to 3 months -- sources told us "The rehab facility has been told to take him [Brown] apart and put him back together."
Now ... a little more than two weeks after entering the program ... Brown has checked out.
Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ his client needed to get out of the facility to start the community service he's required to perform in the Rihanna case. As you may recall, the judge would not accept the hours Chris claimed he had done, and made him do it all over again.
Geragos would not say if rehab did the trick, but did tell us Chris will continue in outpatient therapy.

Kim Basinger's Got NOTHING On Me
11/13/2013 10:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The woman accused of stalking Alec Baldwin threatened the actor ... that if he didn't pay for her to move to New York to live with him, she would wage a "massive destructive war" worse than his fight with Kim Basinger ... TMZ has learned.
Baldwin's lawyer just submitted a series of crazy emails that Genevieve Sabourin fired off to Alec from 2011 to 2012 ... in which she warns him to call the FBI, because she'll destroy him if she doesn't get what she wants.
In one email, Genevieve writes, "You when [sic] on and on, on a massive destructive war with Kim .. and it will never end between you 2. Do you wishes [sic] to establish the same type of relationship with me?"
Genevieve then lists her demands:
-- Allience in all aspect [sic]
-- a new house in NY and MTL
-- a new wardrobe, car and jewels ... all of what I need to fonction [sic]
-- the best ccm and care to upgrade and maintain my youth, health and beauty
-- your fidelity
-- care for my mother (so I could have peace of mind)
In the emails, Genevieve promises Alec that she will "become the most sexy, beautiful and exciting women [sic] you never had."
She also tells Alec that she knows where he lives, works and hangs out ... and that she would take yoga classes with his wife Hilaria to get close to him.
Genevieve says she doesn't want to "hurt you or harm you in any way," but she does want to "straiten your ass out, because you have humiliated me for the last time."
On the House Hunt,
Leaving Charlie's Orbit
11/12/2013 6:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
8:50 AM PT -- Sources close to Brooke tell us, Brooke is looking to move because she believes that's what the court wants. We're told Brooke is under the impression she can't live under the same roof as her children -- and when her brother Scott moves in today with the twins, she feels she's required to find another place to live full-time until her custody rights are fully restored.
Brooke Mueller seems to be subscribing to the adage, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," because she's got her sights set on moving out of Charlie Sheen's neighborhood.
Brooke was shopping for condos in Bev Hills Monday ... just a day before twins Bob and Max will be living with her full-time, under the watchful eye of Brooke's brother Scott.
Here's what's interesting. Brooke has been living in a house Charlie bought just blocks from where he lives. Things have gotten so bad between the 2, Charlie has been making noises that she's becoming persona non grata, so condo shopping is not surprising.
As for who will end up paying for the condo ... it's likely good ol' Charlie will end up footing the bill. Brooke's child support was sliced in half after losing custody, but now that the kids will be living with her full-time, it's a safe bet Charlie will have to ante up $55k a month, just like in the good ol' days.
