Kendall Jones

There's a Target on My Head

Thanks to Facebook

EXCLUSIVE

0709-kill-kendall-facebook-02
The people at Facebook are heartless hypocrites ... censoring hunter/cheerleader Kendall Jones from posting the carcasses of the animals she's killed, but allowing others to post pics advocating Kendall's murder ... so complains Kendall's father.

0709-kill-kendall-facebook-SUB-01
Cody Jones says he contacted Facebook ... demanding they take down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Cody says FB told him to pound sand, because it didn't violate company standards.

The "Kill Kendall" page is a takeoff of Kendall's earlier postings ... where she proudly displayed her kills. The KK page turns the tables ... with the animals standing over a dead hunter.

Facebook tells TMZ, "We remove content and may escalate to law enforcement when we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm, or a direct threat to public safety."

Pam Anderson

Files For Divorce

From Rick Salomon

7/8/2014 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0708_pamela_anderson_rick_saloman_tmz
Pam Anderson
is pulling the plug on her marriage to Rick Salomon ... TMZ has learned.

This will be Pam's second split from Salomon, whom she married in 2007 and stayed with all of 2 months.  She got the marriage annulled.  She was also married to Tommy Lee and Kid Rock.

Pam went public in January, saying she married Salomon again.  

Interesting timing ... Salomon, a world-class poker player, won $2.8 million in the World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop last Tuesday.  Pam filed on Thursday, so under the community property laws she gets half by the skin of her teeth ... unless there's a prenup.

In case you don't recognize Salomon, he's the one who co-starred with Paris Hilton in the famous sex tape, "One Night in Paris."

2:00 PM PDT -- Pam's not publicly known for being religious (more like the total opposite) ... but she just posted this message on Facebook. It appears to be a prayer from Rev. Maryum Morse from the Agape Center.

This is WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum in Spain with his girlfriend ... celebrating Facebook's $19 BILLION purchase of his company, and his 38th birthday.

So, the obvious question: when BILLIONAIRE Jan turns 39 ... will the same GF be in the picture?

RedFoo

WhatsApp Outage is Screwing My Biz

2/22/2014 2:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022214_red_foo_launchWhatsApp has been down all day and RedFoo isn't laughing his ass off one bit ... in fact, the singer says it's totally messing with his business -- so he's taking his patronage elsewhere.

The popular messaging app has been down for a few hours -- just days after being sold to Facebook for 19 BILLION FREAKING DOLLARS -- and RedFoo was pretty pissed about the whole thing.

The LMFAO singer says his girlfriend is also mad ... 'cause he's been MIA without WhatsApp.

The company says they should be up again soon ... but RedFoo says it's too late -- he's already moving to another app.

Diddy to Waitress

Here's Your Tip

Bet On Seattle

2/5/2014 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0204-diddy-01
Diddy and his entourage rang up a $200 tab at a NYC bar during the Super Bowl ... then STIFFED their waitress on the tip ... according to the bar which is now publicly shaming the multi-millionaire.

Employees say on Sunday Sean Combs and his friends were at The Bar located in the Dream Hotel  ... and when the bar manager asked Diddy if he was receiving good service ... Diddy said everything was A-ok. 

But when it came time to pay ... staffers say Diddy left a giant goose egg for gratuity.

Now The Bar is calling him out ... ridiculing him on its Facebook page -- "Although [Diddy's] Net worth is in the millions, he felt it necessary to stiff a hard working young girl for $40 bucks. What a gentleman....!!!"

Of course it's possible Diddy thought, for once, someone else in his entourage would pick up the tab. We've reached out to him ... so far no response.

Vin Diesel

1-Man Dance Party

... To Katy Perry Jam

1/28/2014 7:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012814_vin_diesel_launchVin Diesel felt the urge to dance ... by  himself ... to a Katy Perry song ... and thankfully, he recorded the entire session on video to share with the world.

Diesel took a break in the middle of rockin' out to explain why he felt like dancing -- "Universal just called me and told me "Riddick" is number one on the DVD charts."

Vin says he's especially stoked because it was such a challenge to get the movie made in the first place -- so to celebrate, he cranked some KP (and later Beyonce) and let himself go.

Fierce.

Grammy Wedding

I Tried to Stop My Girl From Getting Married

... Says Bitter Ex-Boyfriend

1/27/2014 11:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



The 33-couple wedding during Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' performance at the Grammys was the feel good moment of the night ... except for one man -- who did everything he could to stop the love of his life from tying the knot.

Michael Politz tells TMZ ... he learned Sunday his ex-girlfriend Tammy (pictured below last night) would be saying "I Do" to her new dude during the "Same Love" performance ... and went into a panic trying to shut it down.

Michael says he called everyone under the sun who might be attending the awards ... so they could tell Tammy how he felt -- including Vince Neil -- but none could make it happen.

0127-michael-wedding-facebook
"I'm heartbroken" Michael says. Adding, "I don't know if I'll ever trust again."

Newlywed Tammy Grabel tells TMZ ... "Michael is a broken hearted ex-boyfriend.  Seth and I are very happy to be married ... I had no idea Michael was trying to stop our wedding."

Guessing he assumed it would end like this.

Honey Boo Boo

I'm Not Leavin' My Sis

For a Dumb TV Show

1/15/2014 8:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0115-pumpkin-facebook
Honey Boo Boo is mysteriously bailing on public appearances ... and we know the reason -- a smashed Pumpkin.

Boo Boo was a no-show this morning on "GMA" and we're told she won't show up at Katie Couric's show either. 

Turns out the kid's family ties are more important than mugging for a camera.  She's been spending time in the hospital with big sis Pumpkin, who was badly hurt in the family car accident last week.  Pumpkin suffered severe chest bruises, a concussion and weakness in her legs.

She can be annoying, but she's a good sister. 

The new season of HBB and brood starts Thursday on TLC.

'Burn Notice' Star

Check Out the 22-Year-Old I'm Banging

NOT My Pregnant Wife

1/9/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0108_seth_peterson_girlfriend_launch"Burn Notice" star Seth Peterson proudly plastered his new 22-year-old girlfriend all over the Internet  -- which normally would be fine ... except he's still got a wife ... who's about to give birth.

TMZ broke the story ... Peterson's wife Kylee Cochran just filed for divorce, claiming her 43-year-old husband bailed on their 12-year marriage in September (when she was just 3 months pregnant with their 3rd kid) to shack up with Miranda Doerfler, a 22-year-old aspiring writer.

Miranda has since posted photos of herself with Peterson all over Facebook, writing captions like, "Okay. Officially. Seth Peterson and I are a couple."

One of Miranda's friends commented, "I thought he was married." And Miranda responded, "Lol, yeah" ... meaning, he WAS. Rhymes with witch.

Seth's wife is asking for spousal support as well as full legal and physical custody of their children, claiming he has a drug problem and she needs to protect the kids.

Good for Robin.

Barron Hilton

Attacks Attacker

With Atrocious Grammar

12/21/2013 10:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1221-barron-hilton-lindsayBarron Hilton has launched a full-frontal attack on the guy who beat him to a pulp in Miami last week ... and one thing's clear -- his 7th grade English teacher is hanging from the light fixture in her bathroom.

Barron posted his version of events on his Facebook page, scoffing at allegations he threw his famous last name around.  Barron says, "This is as ludicrous, and almost as embarrassing as being publicly associated to (SIC -- sorry Barron, it's with) Lindsay Lohan."

Barron does admit, "I am guilty of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, nobody should ever put their hands on someone else."  (Blatant run-on)

He continues by attacking puncher Ray Lemoine, "Lemoine sucker punched me, ran away, and used his blog to conjure up an image of himself as a hero by publishing lies."   Suggestion -- period after hero -- confusing.

Barron says he wrote what he wrote because he was compelled to "articulate the truth."

He ends with delicious irony: "I hope this has brought clarity to the situation."
