Justin Bieber Sued for $100k in Beer Bong Disaster

5/3/2016 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0503-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber may have bought himself the most expensive phone in the world, because a guy who claims the singer destroyed his cell has filed a lawsuit seeking as much as $100,000.

Robert Earl Morgan was at Cle nightclub in Houston last month when Bieber showed up and began clowning Post Malone, appearing to extinguish a cigarette on the rapper's arm.

Bieber was feeling his oats, and according to Morgan, Biebs grabbed a beer bong and tried his hand at chugging. Morgan says Bieber "was clearly a novice," spilling the brewski all over his clothes and face.

Morgan says he was shooting cellphone video of the mishap, when Biebs became enraged, grabbed his cellphone and smashed it to pieces.

According to the lawsuit filed by Jason Friedman, Morgan never got his SIM card back, which contained precious memories, including pics of his grandma's 100th birthday party. He says he also lost business contacts and it's eaten into his commission. Morgan adds he minored in photography in college and had 5,000 pics and videos documenting his travels, which he'll never get back.

He's suing for up to $100k. 

We reached out to Bieber's camp. So far no response.

'Sesame Street' No STD Worries For Bert & Ernie

5/3/2016 1:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0503_sesame_street_std_facebook-2"Sesame Street" is threatening a company for suggesting Bert and Ernie may have contracted STDs.

Mately, a company that makes at-home HIV/STD testing kits, used the BFFs in a new campaign aimed at sexual health awareness. Problem is, the 'Street' says nobody at Mately got an OK to use Bert and Ernie's likeness.

A spokesperson for Sesame Workshop tells TMZ, "The Mately ad is an unauthorized, unlicensed use of our characters. We will be contacting Mately and the appropriate parties with a cease and desist letter instructing them to take this down."

Mately got the message loud and clear -- it's removed all Bert and Ernie images from its site and says there was no intent to "tarnish the Sesame Street brand."

Sex keeps getting the famous roommies in trouble. A few years ago "Sesame Street" had to squash rumors about Bert and Ernie being gay. The 'Street' clarified ... they're puppets and don't have a sexual orientation.

This post was brought to you by the letters C and D (cease and desist).

Caitlyn Jenner I'm So Racy In My New Purple Whip

5/3/2016 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0503_caitlyn_jenner_purple_porsche_launchCaitlyn Jenner is NOT slowing down in her sixties -- in fact, she can now hit 60 mph in under 4 seconds flat in the sick new Porsche she just bought.

Caitlyn picked up her Porsche 911 GT3 RS in Woodland Hills, CA on Monday, and it must have been a real quick ride home. The whip goes zero to 60 in 3.1 seconds!

We're told she ordered the ride -- which retails for about $176k -- months ago. It's street legal, but make no mistake, it's built for the track ... and 66-year-old Caitlyn does love racing. She recently nabbed a 3rd place finish.

As for the purple? Not an homage to Prince -- we're told she'd ordered it long before his death. 

Prince Sibling War Explodes Brother Believes Someone Wants Him Declared Incompetent

5/3/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-alfred-jackson-prince-tmz-02There's a twist in the brewing war among Prince's brothers and sisters ... it involves a missing persons report and allegations one of the singer's siblings is trying to wrest power from the group.

Our sources say last Friday ... someone filed a missing persons report/welfare check involving Alfred Jackson, the elder half brother of Prince. According to the report, Alfred is disabled and has been living in a V.A. facility near Minneapolis.  

The person who filed the police report claims Alfred just left the facility and no one could find him.

Here's what's interesting. TMZ broke the story ... Alfred was in a meeting last Thursday with Prince's other brothers and sisters. We publicized the meeting on the website. It's odd someone filed a missing persons/welfare check report the next day.

Our sources say Alfred believes the person who filed the report is a sibling who is trying to get him declared mentally incompetent so they can get power of attorney and a second vote in what is turning into a battle over Prince's estate.

We're told Alfred and his lawyer, Frank Wheaton, went to the Minneapolis Police Dept. over the weekend to prove he was fully competent. Alfred presented proof he's got his meds, is taking them and is of sound mind. We're told the missing persons case is now closed.

Amy Schumer 'Rude Fan' Gets Death Threats ... Calls Amy a Cyberbully

5/3/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-amy-schumer-tmzAmy Schumer is inciting 4 million people to go after a guy who snagged photos and video of her without her approval -- and he says those fans are threatening his life.

Leslie Brewer tells TMZ he's been harassed non-stop since Schumer posted his photo over the weekend and accused him of invading her space and recording without permission while she was jogging in Greenville, SC. 

Brewer, who is black, claims he's been called the n-word -- and had a fan say, "Shoot him in the face." Another told Amy, "If we see him we will jump him for you" ... and he claims another threatened to burn him and his wife and daughter.

He has not reported any threats to police.

Leslie says he stopped shooting as soon as Amy asked, and posted video of the incident. Amy says the video is heavily edited and doesn't show Leslie chasing and yelling at her to stop for a pic.

He's blaming Amy for turning fans into violent thugs, and wants her to call off the hounds.

Sam Hunt I Miss Football But NFL Career 'Wasn't In the Cards'

5/3/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Before Sam Hunt became a country music mega-star, he was thiiiis close to being an NFL quarterback. So we had to ask -- would you trade your singing career to be Tom Brady???

If you didn't know ... Hunt was a real deal college football player at UAB -- good enough to get a tryout with the Kansas City Chiefs (see the highlights below).

Hunt says the NFL just wasn't in the cards, but told us he still misses the game a whole helluva lot. 

So, we had to ask ... if some crazy Zoltar-style machine ("Big" reference) could change things and give you the exact same success in football as you're having in music -- would you do it???

Watch the clip ... think he's telling the truth? 

Blac Chyna Zeroes in on Jealous Friends After Safe Heist

5/3/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0502_Blac-Chyna_TMZ-2Blac Chyna is adamant friends-turned-haters are behind her $200k home burglary, and she's out to nab 'em ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to BC and Rob Kardashian tell us she thinks the heist was done by an inner circle friend who's bitter about her new lifestyle -- no booze and no cigs. BC used to be down to party on the reg, but she's been sober for several months.

She also thinks the culprit is jealous of her $325k engagement rock.

We broke the story ... the burglar(s) made off with cash and jewelry from Chyna's safe. We're told very few people even knew about the safe -- another reason she's convinced it was an inside job.

LAPD is investigating, but BC's on the job too. We're told she's eyeballing security footage to see if she recognizes any cars that approached her house. Don't mess with the woman's money.

Eddie George To Kelly Ripa I'll Replace Strahan ... For Cheap!!

5/3/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Listen up, Kelly Ripa ... your on-air war with Michael Strahan could have a happy ending ... 'cause another NFL star says he's willing to take Strahan's spot in the host chair ... for a fraction of the price.

The NFL star is Eddie George -- whose career is on fire right now ... especially after crushing it as the lead role in the Broadway run of "Chicago The Musical." Plus, he's been doing TV work pretty consistently since leaving the NFL. 

So, when we got Eddie and his wife out in L.A., we asked if he'd be interested in taking Michael's place ... and putting an end to the most vicious celebrity beef since Big & Pac.

Long story short, Eddie's DOWN -- and says something that'll be music to the producer's ears ... I'M WAY CHEAPER!

Real Mike Ditka Meets Drunk Mike Ditka At Bachelor Party Turn Up

5/3/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0502_mike_ditka_sports-wmA bunch of drunk guys on a bachelor party weekend thought it would be funny to dress the groom up like Mike Ditka on Friday and go to Ditka's steakhouse in Chicago.

Turns out ... BEST. IDEA. EVER!!! 

The bachelor, David Barnett, lives in Florida -- but his buddies threw the party in Chicago so they could party during NFL Draft weekend. Barnett's also a huge Bears fan. 

And because every bachelor party needs drunken buffoonery ... the guys made Barnett dress up like Da Coach for their dinner at Ditka's.

As fate would have it, Mike was actually in the restaurant that night ... heard about his boozy doppelganger ... and came over for a face-to-legendary-face meeting. 

Good luck topping that, bachelorette party.

UFC star Nick Diaz says training with Jean-Claude Van Damme this weekend was a dream come true -- especially since JCVD helped grow his love for fighting back when he was a kid. 

Both Nick and his bro Nate Diaz hooked up with the action legend for a clinic in leg strikes -- so, we hit up Nick to find out what exactly went down when the 3 got into the gym. 

Check out the clip ... Nick was clearly stoked to train with the guy and says things went so well, he plans to do it again soon. 

But the funniest part ... watch how quickly Nick shut down the question when we tried to ask about his brother and Conor McGregor. Dude wasn't havin' it.

EXCLUSIVE

0502-kanye-west-TMZ-01Kanye West is a blank slate, criminally speaking -- a judge signed off on erasing his conviction for that paparazzi beatdown at LAX.

According to court docs, obtained by TMZ, the judge approved Kanye's request to expunge the case. You'll recall he pled no contest in 2014 to misdemeanor battery for the incident.

As we reported, Kanye's been a model citizen ever since ... putting in more than the 250 community service hours that were required, and staying on the straight and narrow for his 24 months of probation.

See, Lindsay Lohan ... it CAN be done.

Michael Chiklis Beefs with Roger Goodell ... You're NO 'Commish'

5/2/2016 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

COMMISH WAR!!! 

The "Commish" is pissed at the "Commish" -- with Michael Chiklis claiming Roger Goodell is making an absolute mockery of the esteemed title. 

Of course, Chiklis famously starred as Police Commissioner Tony Scali on "The Commish" back in the day ... and says he learned the term "Commish" must be EARNED.

"The term 'Commish' is a term of endearment bestowed upon a commissioner by his subordinates out of feelings of affection ... it's not one that you endow yourself with as a moniker or a Twitter handle."

He then pointed out that Goodell's Twitter handle is "@nflcommish."

BTW, Chiklis also happens to be a HUUUGE Patriots fan. 

COMMISH WAR!!!
