Mark Ballas has a true rookie on his hands with Sadie Robertson because the "Duck Dynasty" star hails from a high school where dancing is strictly forbidden ... just like "Footloose."
Willie Robertson's 17-year-old daughter is partnered with Ballas for this season of "Dancing With the Stars" ... but she also attends Ouachita Christian School in Monroe, LA where administrators have a longstanding ban on all school dances.
We spoke to Sadie's principal Jamie Stokes, and he was unapologetic about the school's policy ... which he says includes banning all dances. Even proms. Zero tolerance dancing, y'all.
Mark and Sadie advanced last week, but judge Julianne Hough told the 'DD' heir she's gonna need to get "more down and dirty" to win it all.
Sadie's dad shot that down almost immediately -- and we're guessing it's ditto from her principal.
Nickelodeon Star Miranda Cosgrove
Fan: I'm Going to Kill Myself
'Cause You Don't Love Me
9/21/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nickelodeon star MIranda Cosgrove got a spectacularly horrifying set of pics from a fan ... who threatened to kill himself with a hairdryer in a bathtub because his love for her was not returned.
Joshua Stockton also sent Miranda pics of a slit wrist, writing, "Maybe I'll finish the job I started."
Stockton was upset because he was vying for Miranda's affection by sending her gifts through UPS and she had them all returned -- unopened.
Miranda filed legal docs -- asking a judge for protection -- claiming Stockton would troll her social media, looking for fan sightings of the actress. If someone posted a pic of Miranda at USC -- where she goes to school or at Disneyland -- Stockton would show up.
A judge felt there was a serious threat ... so he ordered Stockton stay clear of Miranda.
Accused of Party Foul ...
Doubling Down in Miami Nightclubs
9/21/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Pusha T got busted cheating in Miami, and it could cost him thousands of dollars -- except it's not a chick who caught him stepping out ... it's a couple of clubs.
According to a lawsuit filed in Miami, the rapper agreed to do an appearance at Cameo nightclub on August 16 -- and part of the deal banned him from appearing at any other clubs within 30 miles of Miami-Dade County within 15 days ... before or after his Cameo gig.
So, naturally ... Pusha was at Dream Nightclub on August 15 for a celebrity hoops tournament, and Cameo's calling a foul. They claim Pusha's double cross -- intentional or not -- cost them $13,000 in sales ... cause who wants to see Pusha T on consecutive nights?
Cameo is suing for their lost revenue and more. We called Pusha T, but he hasn't gotten back to us. Probably at another club.
Won't Be Fired
From 'Honey Boo Boo'
9/20/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sugar Bear will not get a pink slip from TLC in the wake of his separation from Mama June ... but TLC is now scrambling to make sure "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" doesn't implode the way "John & Kate Plus 8" did.
Sources close to the show tell TMZ ... they have made a decision -- Sugar Bear is the father of the show's star, and the story line would be "ridiculously incomplete" without including him. The separation itself will become a significant part of the show.
Producers are not looking to exploit the split, and haven't yet decided how to cover it, but one source was candid, "To tell the truth it's good for the show. It had hit a bit of a lull and now there are tons of story lines ... dating, single parenting, breakups."
That said ... TLC wants to make sure the kids are not "emotionally bleeding" on camera because their parents broke up. TLC watched one of their signature shows -- "John & Kate" --- go down the toilet because of the strife over the kids.
TLC wants to give Mama June an even higher profile on the show, following her life as a newly-single woman. They don't want to portray her as an emotional wreck ... she'll remain the rock of the family.
TMZ broke the story ... June kicked Sugar Bear to the curb after she found out he was trolling an online dating site.
NOT A DADDY!
9/20/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rob Kardashian is NOT a daddy ... he's intentionally punked the media by tweeting out some not-so-cryptic hints he's a father and then watching the lies spiral out of control online.
Sources VERY close to Rob tell TMZ ... Rob was testing the media Thursday night by tweeting, "Was with my baby mama tonight." In July, he tweeted, "Happy I got my Son with me for the 4th tomorrow."
Various outlets immediately took the bait, but here's the thing ... there is no baby mama and no baby.
It's an interesting strategy ... Rob's been taking heat for his weight and substance abuse. Not a bad diversionary tactic.

We're told Thornton and her hubby, Chris Carney, have reconciled ... moving into Chris' parents' house in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where his mom is the mayor.
We broke the story ... Chris filed a child stealing report with police back in May ... claiming Thornton had abducted their 2 young sons. Turned out ... Thornton fled to get away from her husband who went on violent drunken binges. It was so bad Chris' mom helped her escape.
So Chris has pledged to stop drinking and Tiffany is back -- though we're told she made him take a drug and alcohol test first.
We're also told Tiffany and Chris are getting counseling, so maybe things will work out.
I Gotta Have 'En Vogue' Again
'Cause I'm Broke As a Joke
9/20/2014 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Singer Maxine Jones -- who was kicked out of En Vogue two years ago -- is blaming her old band mates for her massive debt and bankruptcy.
Jones was ordered by a judge last year to stop using the En Vogue name ... which led to her filing for bankruptcy. She said she was over $100K in the red.
In her bankruptcy docs, Jones listed her debts -- including $212K for her house, $22K in CA taxes, $17K in lawyers' fees ... and $539 to Victoria's Secret -- because a girl's still gotta look good.
Jones said she brings in about $3,473 a month -- but not enough to cover her monthly expenses.
So now Jones has gone back to court ... she's filed an appeal -- asking a judge to let her use the En Vogue name again ... so she can book gigs and pay off some of her debts.

Jamie Foxx & 2 Chainz
Major Party Buzz
New Song Copies Old Song
9/19/2014 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
6:53 P.M. PDT -- According to a rep, "DJ Mustard did not grant any rights to a third party to exploit the recording, "Party Ain't A Party, " and, accordingly, this claim against DJ Mustard has absolutely no merit."
Jamie Foxx callously crushed the dreams of an up-and-coming singer ... by jacking his song -- "Party Ain't a Party" -- so Foxx could selfishly resurrect his own music career, according to a new lawsuit.
Foxx released the song -- featuring 2 Chainz -- as a single this week ... "after being absent from the music scene for over four (4) years," according to court docs obtained by TMZ.
Just one problem -- it's the EXACT same song recorded by a young artist named J Rand a year earlier! Seriously, listen ... the ONLY difference between the two tracks are the singers.
Nontra Records says the rip-off is blatant and shameless -- because J Rand's version and Foxx's version were both produced by the same guy -- DJ Mustard.
Nontra's suing all 3 guys -- Foxx, 2 Chainz and DJ Mustard.
Super-Coolly Subdues Home Intruder
9/19/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Keanu Reeves had his chance to reprise his famous line from "The Matrix" -- "I know Kung Fu" -- because we've learned a woman broke into his house while he was sleeping and plunked herself on his library chair.
Reeves was snoozing at 4 AM Monday when he heard sounds coming from his library ... yes, Ted "Theodore" Logan has a library.
The actor got up, walked in and saw a woman in her mid-40's sitting in his chair, not uttering a peep.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Keanu calmly approached her and began speaking to her. She explained she was there to meet him. He very calmly called 911 and obtusely told the dispatcher cops needed to roll quick.
Police came and took the woman into custody. She was taken for a psych evaluation.
It's another amazing story of an obsessed fan gaining entry into a celeb's house. It recently happened to Sandra Bullock ... the fan ended up at her bedroom door as she was sleeping. Interesting ... that's Keanu's "Speed" co-star.
Keanu lives in an area in the Hollywood Hills tour bus drivers call "Hunk Alley." Leo DiCaprio is his neighbor. Tobey Maguire used to live next door to Keanu. The drivers call out Keanu's house -- which is built like a fort, so it's just amazing someone broke in.
Here's what's even more amazing. Apparently he didn't set his alarm.
