Leslie Jones Homeland Security Hunting Down Hacker

8/25/2016 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0825-leslie-jones-tmzLeslie Jones' hacking situation is so bad the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security has their top cyber-crimes unit on the case ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ reported ... the FBI jumped on the case Wednesday after hackers posted nude pics of the 'SNL' star on her website, along with her passport, driver's license and other sensitive info.

We've learned the case has now been transferred to Homeland Security for 2 reasons -- it has the most sophisticated cyber-crime unit in the country, and Leslie has history with the Dept. 

One source tells TMZ Leslie had some sort of problem with catfishing in the past, and Homeland Security investigated the case. There's some evidence a group from Japan may have been the culprit in the current case.

Leslie has remained silent since her website was hacked Wednesday.

EXCLUSIVE

0824_jennifer_lopez_casper-smart-tmzJennifer Lopez broke up with Casper Smart because he snubbed her by passing on a fancy Hamptons charity event in favor of hanging with his boyz at UFC 202 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... J Lo told Casper it was super important for him to accompany her to Ron Perelman's Hamptons fundraiser Saturday night benefiting the Apollo Theater. 

Casper wasn't having it, because he desperately wanted to watch the Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz fight in Vegas with his friends.

0824_Casper_smart_bruce_buffer_kanye_tweetCasper had a great time in Vegas, hanging with Kanye and UFC announcer Bruce Buffer.

J Lo, we're told, was enraged and ended the relationship ... no discussion -- simply, we're done.

Here's the funny thing ... Casper was telling people at the fight he was going to NYC Sunday to meet up with Jennifer, who was there filming a show. He had no idea being a no-show Saturday would end things.

0824_jennifer_lopez_saturady_getty_subOur sources add this ... J Lo and Casper have "broken up" several times before and gotten back together, and they say they would not be surprised at all if it happens again.

EXCLUSIVE

0825-kanye-west-vma-getty-with-swipe-01Kanye West will have free reign over the stage at this weekend's MTV VMAs and show producers are expecting something big ... they just have no idea WHAT it will be. 

A source close to production tells us MTV honchos are giving 'Ye 4 minutes to do with as he pleases. He can rap, sing, dance or even just stay silent ... and we're told show producers are totally clueless which door he'll pick.

You'll remember ... Kanye won last year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the show and took the stage for an 11 minute sermon that included talk of a presidential run in 2020.

There have been rumors he and Taylor Swift might make nice during Sunday's show ... but sources close to Swift say she has no plans to attend.

Johnny Depp I'll Honor Amber's Charity Pledge and Send the Checks

8/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_johnny_depp_amber_heard_tmzJohnny Depp is heaping praise on Amber Heard for promising to donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity ... and he's so moved he's sending the checks directly to the 2 organizations she personally picked.

Amber announced after striking her settlement she would donate every penny to the ACLU and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles -- $3.5 mil each. We checked with Children's Hospital Tuesday and they had not yet received any of the money.

We've learned both the ACLU and Children's Hospital got checks Wednesday from Johnny, on behalf of Amber. The checks are the first in a number of installments that will eventually total $7 million.

A rep for Johnny tells TMZ, "Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple installments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard's pledge."

The rep adds, "Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

Everybody happy now?

"They're usually very sensitive."

FYI, several athletes have been featured on 'Roasts' in the past -- including Warren Sapp, Mike Tyson and Shaq.

Meantime, he has one piece of advice for Manning ... "Wear a helmet."

8/25/2016 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-kelly-michael-getty-02Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's TV studio was a dark and dangerous place -- and not only because of their feud -- according to an audience member who says she had a trippy and painful experience.

The woman, named Judith, says her January 2014 visit to "Live with Kelly and Michael" included a hard fall on her ass, and she's blaming it on an incompetent employee leading her through a poorly lit area of the studio with cables all over the place. 

She's not specific about exactly how she went down, but in the lawsuit she just filed ... she mentions the words "negligent" and "negligence" dozens of times while describing the scene. She calls it "trap like" conditions.

In the docs, Judith says she suffered severe and permanent injury -- again, short on specifics. She's suing the show, Disney and ABC. Kelly and Michael are not named as defendants, so ... no chance for a reunion on the witness stand.

EXCLUSIVE

0824_frances_cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain's estranged husband says he won't have a penny to his name without her ... so he's asking a judge to make her pay up.

Isaiah Silva is requesting spousal support, and according to the docs he wants a ton of it -- nothing less than $25k a month.

Isaiah says he left a steady job when they got married and Frances promised to cover a bunch of his monthly expenses, including paying private school and housing bills for his child from a previous relationship.

Now, he says Frances wants to renege on those commitments. Isaiah claims Frances has upwards of $100 mil in her dad's estate, and says he deserves half of the money she earned off business deals made during the 2 year marriage. He says there's no prenup.

Frances made it clear in her divorce docs ... the Kurt Cobain money is hers alone and not Isaiah's -- but she is open to paying some spousal support.

Jadakiss Drops Big Bucks for Little Stripper

EXCLUSIVE

It's not the size of the stripper, it's the motion of her ass while werkin' it for Jadakiss that counts ... if you're a tiny stripper in a West Virginia club.

It all went down after Jadakiss' recent appearance at Lust Gentlemen's Club. We're told the little lady -- she goes by Ivy -- surprised the rapper in the VIP room after his 30 minute set.

You gotta see her moves, and especially Jadakiss' reaction to 'em.

We're told he made it rain $300 for the private dance. Money well spent.

Thomas Gibson Looking for Cars in Audi Wrong Places

8/25/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-thomas-gibson-getty-01Thomas Gibson says he's just one of many Americans who got screwed by Volkswagen's massive recall last year, and now he wants to settle the score in court.

In a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ ... Thomas claims an L.A. dealership, and VW by association, lied to his face when they told him his 2012 Audi Q7 offered him horsepower, fuel efficiency AND clean diesel.

He says those claims were BS, noting the feds found VW -- Audi's parent co. -- passed government emissions tests under false pretenses ... which lead to its recall of roughly 11 million cars worldwide.

Thomas -- who's freshly unemployed -- says he's opted out of the class action suit against VW. He's going all lone wolf, presumably because he thinks it'll net him more dough out of zee Germans.
