Mark Zuckerberg Aqua Baby

1/25/2016 7:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-mark-zuckerberg-facebook-01Mark Zuckerberg shared an adorable photo Sunday of his two-month-old daughter Max taking her first ever swim.

Backstroke, eh? Woulda pegged her as more of a crawler.  

Fun fact: Max has already out-fashioned dad with that rose on her swimsuit.

'Spongebob Squarepants' Squidward Tentacles Claims Cops Lied in DUI Bust

1/20/2016 10:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120-roger-bumpass-getty-01Rodger Bumpass -- aka Squidward Tentacles on "SpongeBob SquarePants" -- says cops lied about his DUI arrest ... but Bumpass' accusation could actually hurt him legally.

TMZ broke the story ... cops claimed they saw him leaning against his PT Cruiser on a Burbank street when they approached him. Police say he tried to walk away and stumbled as if he were impaired. He then flunked a field sobriety test and blew more than twice the legal limit.

Bumpass tells us he was NOT leaning against his car. Here's the way he says it went down. Bumpass admits he had been drinking at a Burbank bar, got in his car and began driving home. At some point he says cops began tailing him, pulled him over and asked if he had been drinking. He confessed he had, and then failed the field sobriety test.

Here's the problem ... cops say they never saw him behind the wheel, and even if he confessed he was so out of it the confession could be challenged. By claiming cops first spotted him while he was driving blows that defense out of the water.

Bumpass says he's spoken with several people over at Nickelodeon and his fate there is uncertain.


Jada Pinkett Smith to Academy We're Not Begging You Anymore You're Irrelevant to Us

1/18/2016 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jada Pinkett Smith did something remarkable and powerful Sunday, posting words that could have been delivered by Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver 50 years ago.

Jada -- whose husband, Will Smith, was overlooked by the Academy for his performance in "Concussion" -- says in a super powerful way, "Maybe it's time we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities, and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called mainstream."

Jada suggested, "We can no longer beg for the love, acknowledgement or respect of any group."

She made it clear ... she won't be attending the Oscars.

You gotta listen to her ... back in the day Eldridge was viewed by the "mainstream" as radical and dangerous.  Jada revives the sentiment, and it doesn't sound radical or dangerous at all.

Mark Zuckerberg Neighbors Complain ... Your Security Is Hogging All the Parking!

1/14/2016 6:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0114-mark-zuckerberg-tmz-01Mark Zuckerberg's neighbors are ready to unfriend the billionaire Facebook founder ... because his security team is allegedly illegally parked in their hood. 

A letter is circulating among those in the San Francisco neighborhood where Zuckerberg lives, urging people to report the illegal parking to local authorities.  

The letter (obtained by Buzzfeed) refers to the billionaire only as "Zuck" and claims that his security team could park in front of his house or in his driveway, but simply doesn't. It goes on to say, "One of the guards mentioned that she agreed that even from a security standpoint, where the cars are parked don’t give the best vantage points."  

The neighbors have allegedly complained to Zuck's security manager, the SFMTA and even local news ... but nothing's changed. 

Thus far, Zuck has yet to respond. 

Mike Rowe I Didn't Rob that Bank, I Swear

1/7/2016 6:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0106-mike-rowe-suspect-facebook-03It sure looked like Mike Rowe was arrested for bank robbery.

Not him, of course, but a dead ringer for sure. The dude was arrested this week for a Medford, Oregon heist. Rowe hilariously copped to the similarity, even saying he's been to Medford before.

The "Dirty Jobs" star was quick to point out the differences, saying, "I am not 5'6" - 5'8" tall with a small to medium build. The last time I was 5'6" - 5'8" I was in the 6th grade. And the 'small to medium' ship sailed some time ago.

Here's the best part ... Rowe wonders why a bank robber would not wear a disguise, concluding, "The consensus seems to be because he's an idiot." But Rowe then suggested an alternate possibility ... "What if the thief was not an idiot, but a clever person of below average height wearing a Mike Rowe Mask?"

Which would make the robber smart, right?

1223-star-wars-facebook-01This is the ominous photo that landed an 18-year-old "Star Wars" fanatic in jail.

As we reported, Arthur Charles Roy was taken into custody after posting this pic allegedly designed to threaten another fan who spoiled the plot for him.

Law enforcement says Roy threatened to go to the other guy's school in Helena, Montana and shoot him.  

The pic of Roy brandishing a Colt 1911 semi-automatic with a hairpin trigger is the centerpiece of the case against him.

1223-sub-star-wars-facebook-04Roy has posted other scary pics in the past.


Mark Zuckerberg I'm Raising A Little Jedi!

12/18/2015 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1218-zuckerberg-baby-facebook-01Mark Zuckerberg has turned into the stereotypical Facebook user ... posting baby pics.

The FB honcho showed off his adorable daughter Max dressed up as a baby Jedi, captioning the pic, "The force is strong with this one."

Let's hope the kid is more of Luke than Anakin. 


'Sons of Guns' Star Target of Gun Violence

12/15/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1214-sons-of-guns-glenn-fleming-INSTAGRAM-01Former "Sons of Guns" star Glenn Fleming loves his guns ... just not when they're turned against him. 

The firearm expert ticked off a gun hater last week by posting pro-gun comments on Facebook. A woman fired back, "If I had one of your guns, I'd shoot your ass off ... and it would be just another shooting." 

1214-SUB-sons-of-guns-glenn-fleming-facebook-01Fleming went to cops, who tell us they've launched an investigation and will confront the woman.

And Fleming says, he filed a police report reluctantly, after his wife and mother-in-law got freaked out and begged him to go to cops. 

Chad Michael Collins Send Cosmic Love To My Bike Thief

12/3/2015 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1203-chad-michael-collins-twitter-face-01Chad Michael Collins' trip to see "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" cost him over $1,500 when someone snatched his two-wheeler outside the theater!!!

Collins, who's been on shows like "Bones," "Castle," and "Once Upon A Time," posted his own hilarious version of an APB on Facebook after his beloved Cannondale went missing.

It includes a detailed timeline complete with photos of Big Red ... his pet name for the bike, which he thinks someone stole with a hacksaw.

LAPD's on the case, but since they've got bigger fish to fry ... Chad's alerting Craigslist users, in case Big Red comes up for sale. He also thinks sending cosmic love to the thief will help get back the bike.

He could've used some of that after the movie. He had to walk home.

1201-mark-zukerberg-baby-facebook-01Most dads hand out cigars ... Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg celebrated the birth of his daughter Max on Tuesday by handing out a freakin' fortune to charity. 

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, announced the birth on his FB page with a heartfelt letter to their newborn. In it, they say she gives hope for the future, a future they hope includes "advancing human potential and promoting equality." 

To do his part, Mark and Priscilla pledged to give away 99% of their FB stock -- worth $45 billion right now -- over the course of their lives. He doesn't specify who will get the dough, but says it'll go to people who improve "this world for the next generation."

It's no empty promise either ... Zuck informed the Securities and Exchange Commission that he'll be unloading the stock, so it's legit.

Exclusive Details

1114-main-peace-for-paris-instagram-01The iconic Eiffel Tower peace symbol used by big name celebs like Kim Kardashian, Ellen Degeneres and Justin Bieber was created to bring the world together by a young French artist.

Jean Jullien, a 27-year-old visual artist tells TMZ when news of the attacks started to spread last night, he needed a way to express himself. He says his first reaction was to draw the symbol of peace and share it as a sign of solidarity ... with the tower serving as an image the world could relate to. 

Since then, the image is everywhere ... becoming an unofficial symbol for support. Jullien's first tweet of the drawing has already been shared by almost 50 thousand people and celebs have helped that number grow even bigger.

Fortunately, Jullien's friends and family members are all safe ... he says, "this is an image for everyone, this is a message of peace."

The feature had been used only 4 times  -- for natural disasters -- allowing users to "check-in" as safe, sending notification to friends.

'Cholos Try Vegan' Star I'm So Famous a Cop Let Me Skate!

11/11/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the stars of "Cholos Try Vegan Food" got a taste of celebrity early Tuesday morning when he was stopped by a cop who recognized him and sent him on his merry way.

Fabian Alomar was heading home from the Staples Center when cops pulled him and a female friend over for a blown out headlight. Fabian says he was expecting the worst after cops ordered them to put their hands up. 

Fabian almost blew it by pulling the "Do you know who I am?" card with the first cop, who was not impressed. But the second cop was a Latina who saw the video, and she was clearly impressed and ultimately let him go with a warning to get his light fixed.

Fact is ... cops have discretion and often don't write motorists up with blown out lights, but when you watch the video Fabian's newfound fame clearly didn't hurt.

If you haven't seen it, the video is HILARIOUS ....  the Cholos mistake kale chips for bud and kombucha for a tribe of ancient warriors.
