Man Who Raised AP's Son:
"So Tired of This 'Poor Adrian' Sh*t"
10/15/2013 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The man who raised Adrian Peterson's 2-year-old son says he's sick and tired of people feeling sorry for the NFL star, claiming AP didn't care about the boy because he never got the chance to meet him.
We broke the story, AP only learned he was the biological dad a few months ago. Before the revelation, the child's mother was under the impression that the father was a man named Bobby Ruffin.
After the child passed away on Friday, Bobby went to his Facebook page and unloaded ... writing, "So tired of this poor Adrian Peterson sh*t. Let me blow all your minds. The boy who died was my son."
"Yes A.P. he was the biological father but I raised him and he carried my name. Tyrese Robert Ruffin. I don’t blame AP for not really caring cuz him and I both found out recently who the biological father was."
“AP met my son for the first time yest when my son was already in coma. I was here today when we pulled the plug, not him. He was happily practicing and has no problem playing on Sunday."
"So yea this isn’t all out yet but I’m sick of the poor AP sh*t. He didn’t know or even meet my son. Sorry for the outburst but put yourself in my place.”

For you non-Jews (or you Jews that can't read Hebrew) the tattoo says, "Shekhinah" -- which essentially translates to mean God's presence on Earth.
... at least, that's what we think it means (sorry, it's Friday so our rabbis aren't picking up their phones).

'Dumb and Dumber To'
Facebook Saved My Ass
Says Billy the Blind Kid
9/29/2013 12:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Billy the Blind Kid from "Dumb and Dumber" better kiss Mark Zuckerberg's tuchus -- 'cause he'd have been screwed out of the sequel if it weren't for Facebook.
Billy -- real name Brady Bluhm -- was praying he'd get a call for part two once the studio confirmed it was a go ... but weeks passed without a peep.
Turns out the Farrelly Brothers had written his short, yet memorable part into the new script ... but didn't know if he was still in the business and couldn't find him.
Thankfully for Brady ... it's 2013 and they found him through FB. But business is business .. he still had to audition for the gig. He passed!
Brady says Harry and Lloyd still live in the same apartment for 'To' ... but beyond that he was tight lipped.

Alleged Stalker Vacationed
In Her Hamptons Mansion
8/22/2013 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Someone's been sleeping in Jennifer Lopez's pool house, and it ain't Goldilocks -- cops arrested an alleged stalker who somehow managed to live in the pool house of her massive Hamptons mansion ... for several days ... without getting noticed.
According to Southampton police, 49-year-old John M. Dubis basically moved in to J.Lo's $10 million pad sometime in early August.
He reportedly walked around the estate freely, hanging out openly in view of neighbors... and even posted Facebook photos of himself all over the grounds, such as the one below -- before police finally busted him on Aug. 8.
And how's this for weird ... two days before his arrest, Dubis dropped by a nearby menswear store and purchased a plaid overcoat.
Jennifer was not home, but the shocking part is security guards were patrolling the property.
Of course, you have to remember the 8,500 sq. foot home sits on 3 acres -- and it's a decent hike out to the pool house from the main quarters.
Dubis was booked for burglary, stalking, and criminal contempt. He pled not guilty, and is currently sitting in jail in lieu of $100,000 bail. The judge has ordered a mental evaluation for Dubis.
J.Lo already had a protective order against him for contacting her mother earlier this year.
Weiner's Sexting Partner
For His Pleasure
7/25/2013 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Things got real cheeky between NYC mayor hopeful Anthony Weiner and his latest sexting partner -- TMZ has obtained a pic she sent to him on Facebook ... showing off her ass in a thong ... and that's just the beginning.
23-year-old Sydney Elaine Leathers tells TMZ she sent the photo to Weiner in July 2012, modeling a cheeky-cut lace thong (good choice) ... in what appears to be her bathroom (bad choice).
Weiner admitted yesterday he sexted long after he resigned from Congress in 2011, but finally nipped his sexting problem in the bud last summer ... around when Leathers sent the thong photo.
Leathers says ... Weiner was very persistent in his naughty picture requests, asking her to send all sorts of naked photos ... more than 30 in total. But we're told Weiner also has a foot fetish, and regularly asked for pics of Leathers' feet in heels. Of course, this was all allegedly in exchange for pictures of his own naked ... weiner.
And the relationship wasn't just online either, we're told Weiner regularly spoke to Leathers on the phone -- in fact, Weiner was adamant about speaking to her because he enjoyed telling her about his sex dreams ... most of which involved her. Shower sex was allegedly one of his favorite topics ... his wife, Huma, was not.
As we reported, Weiner now claims the entire sexting debacle "is entirely behind me," and that he's moving full steam ahead with his mayoral campaign. Good luck with that.
‘Harlem Shake’ Guy Sued
I Thought We Were
7/22/2013 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
DJ Baauer – the guy behind the insanely popular viral hit "Harlem Shake" – is being sued by a photographer who claims Baauer engaged in some serious Facebook deception, TMZ has learned.
Photographer Dustin Kessler claims Baauer, aka Harry Bauer Rodrigues, hired him for a photo shoot last year and then asked for permission to use two of the photos; one for a Facebook profile pic ... the other for a magazine article.
Kessler says he agreed to the terms, but then started seeing his photos showing up all over the place, in print and online magazines like Rolling Stone, Spin and Billboard as well as ads for Coachella … and even on Baauer’s own website.
Kessler says he never got credit OR money for any of his photos. So he’s suing Baauer – claiming the DJ is partly responsible for the widespread unauthorized use of his pics. Kessler is also suing the media outlets which allegedly ran the pics without permission.
Kessler is demanding a jury trial and is seeking unspecified damages.
Meantime, here's the Miami Heat shakin' things up ...
About My Daughter's Engagement
7/16/2013 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ Photog: "How excited are you for your daughter -- she's about to get married and stuff?"
Bobby Brown: "I'M NOT."
That basically sums up Bobby B's feeling about his daughter Bobbi Kristina getting engaged to Nick "He's Not My Biological Brother" Gordon.
Bobby made it clear he doesn't approve ... and reveals that Nick never even called him up to ask for her hand in marriage.
The Brown family isn't exactly the tightest bunch -- Bobbi Kristina doesn't talk to her dad, so why would Nick?
Still let's recap ... the not-official brother didn't call his quasi step-dad to ask permission to marry his kinda-sister.
Despite the bitterness, Bobby tells TMZ ... "I just want her to be happy."
We broke the story, Bobbi K revealed the engagement on Facebook last week ... and though Whitney treated Nick like a son growing up, he's not a blood relative and was never formally adopted.
Still, kinda weird ...
ON TALK SHOW!

Kris Jenner pulled out the big guns for her talk show premiere -- 'cause Kim Kardashian's baby North West will make its debut ... is what she wants you to believe -- BUT TMZ KNOWS IT'S NOT!
Kris' show posted a photo on Twitter and Facebook ... of herself cuddling an infant, with the message ... "You never know who will stop by our show today #WatchKris".
This would be the first public shot of North since her birth -- but we smelled a rat. And guess what? After some digging we found out the baby is owned by a hair and makeup person on the set.
Kanye West and Kim have been pretty clear about NOT wanting their baby in the spotlight.
Dropped from MLB Party
After Domestic Violence Charge
7/8/2013 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Put away the bottles of bub ... 50 Cent has just been dropped from MLB.com's upcoming All-Star Bash in NYC in the wake of his domestic violence scandal, TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... 50 was charged with domestic violence last week following the alleged domestic dispute at his baby mama's house in California in June, during which he allegedly kicked her and destroyed a bunch of her property (more than $7,000 worth).
50 was supposed to perform at the MLB.com party on July 14th along with Kaskade, but sources tell TMZ, MLB officials decided not to move forward with the alleged GF-kicker.
50's name appeared on the original flyer for the event ... but the event's Facebook page is now updated, and advertises 2 "surprise performances" for the party.
MLB hasn't returned our calls to confirm 50 was cut as a direct result of the domestic violence charges.
50's people haven't gotten back to us either.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg
I Was Supposed to Be
on the Plane That Crashed!
7/6/2013 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Status Update: Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg was almost a passenger on the plane that crash landed in San Francisco today ... but a last minute decision to change flights spared her and her family a harrowing ordeal.
Sanderg posted on her FB page (where else?) that she switched flights at the last minute so she could use her airline miles to pay for her family's tickets.
She explained, "Our flight was scheduled to come in at the same time, but we were early and landed about 20 minutes before the crash."
Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed at 11:30 AM PT, killing two and hospitalizing another 130.
Facebook Destroyed Her
6/26/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paris Jackson's deep depression has been largely the result of bullying ... and Facebook has been hosting the haters.
Sources closely connected to Paris tell TMZ ... the 15-year-old has been reeling from comments left on her Facebook page --- many about Michael Jackson and his lifestyle. Some of the comments involve the various molestation allegations ... others involve the odd life Paris lived while Michael was alive.
We're told Paris has taken the comments very personally ... and one source says, "They destroyed her." The source adds, there's a nexus between the bullying and her penchant for cutting.
Now here's the problem. Paris does not have access to her Facebook page while she's in the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center. But her family is deeply concerned that she'll backslide if she goes back on Facebook when she gets out.
The family is extremely frustrated, because they've tried to shut down Paris' Facebook page, but they can't --- Facebook's policy is that the family of a user has no right to shut down an account if the user is 13 years of age or older.
Paris' family believes Facebook could create yet another tragedy in the Jackson family, but they're powerless to do anything about it.
