Sony Pictures

Caves to More Hacker Demands

Wipes 'Interview' From Social Media

12/20/2014 11:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1220-the-interview-screenshot-01
Looks like the "Guardians of Peace" scored another victory ... Sony quietly gave in to another hacker demand by wiping almost all traces of "The Interview" from its social media pages.

Hackers threatened top level Sony execs Friday saying, "We want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately."

The movie studio almost immediately obliged ... the movie's Twitter page no longer has any tweets, the Facebook page has been deleted and all "Interview" footage has been wiped from its YouTube page.

Sad.

1:50 PM PST -- The hackers also released a message Saturday afternoon mocking the FBI ... saying, "The result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes. We congratulate you success. FBI is the BEST in the world."

They included a link to a weird YouTube video featuring a bunch of dancing happy faces titled "you are an idiot."

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Sugar Bear Cheating

Mama June is back on the attack against Sugar Bear, claiming he's still on the prowl for women ... lots of them.

June vented on her personal Facebook page ... complaining she's taking all the heat for dating Mark McDaniel while SB is playing the victim when actually he's "a cheater and a big player."

She says Sugar Bear is trying to snare girls through Snapchat. She also admits she's rifled through his phone and found concrete proof he's on the hunt.

TMZ broke the story ... Mama June claimed she broke up with SB after she found he was trolling online dating sites. But then we found out she was dating the man who served time for molesting her daughter, and everything changed. 

And get this ... Mama J thinks Sugar Bear is a lady killer, warning, "he has already scammed many girls on here to fell in love with them," adding, "so baby if u think u r his one in only u r wrong big time."

Don't hate the playa.

Rihanna

Threatened By Jeweler

You Jacked Our Patriotic Pic!

12/5/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna Veterans Day Pic
Rihanna
's patriotic gesture to U.S. troops has backfired over the picture she used to make her point ... and now the company that owns the pic has a novel way she can make good.

Coronet Diamonds created the image and posted it on its website November 11 -- Veteran's Day. Apparently the famous Barbadian liked it so much ... she posted it on her Instagram, and Twitter, but she kind of deceived her followers by Photoshopping herself into the image and then removing the jewelry company's hashtag.

So we found out Coronet has sent Rihanna a cease and desist letter. They'll settle for an apology on Rihanna's social media platforms ... an apology that makes it clear Coronet created the image.

Now let's talk about what Coronet really wants. It wants some free advertising ... which they will get in a big way with Rihanna's 142 MILLION followers.

Coronet is smart. The end.

Paris Hilton

Death Threats

By Anti-Semitic Crazy Man

12/2/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-paris-hilton-rick-hilton-tmz-01
A crazy anti-Semitic man -- who believes Paris Hilton is Jewish -- has threatened to kill her, and we've learned the LAPD is after him.

Cops just got a search warrant  allowing them to track down the Instagram and Facebook account of someone who is making overt threats against Paris and her dad, Rick Hilton.

In one post, the man writes to Rick, "one month and she's dead, she's never coming home." 

The man says in another post, "Invite [Paris] to the match so we can gang raper her ass hahahahahaha." And then he threatens, "I'll beat u and that bitch to unconscious."

The guy clearly thinks the Hiltons are Jewish -- which they are not. He wrote, "KILL JEWS FOR FUN," and "I know ur Jew family gives nothing" ... an obtuse accusation that the Hiltons are cheap.

Our law enforcement sources say cops think they know who's making the threats, but they need the Facebook and Instagram verification before they can make an arrest.

Mama June's New Man

Kicked Off Facebook

No Child Molesters Allowed

11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mark McDaniel Facebook Profile DeletedMama June's boyfriend has been booted from Facebook ... because he's a child molester. 

Mark McDaniel was active on Facebook until Tuesday ... when his profile was yanked from the site. Turns out Facebook has a policy of rejecting sex offenders, but apparently they didn't know until recently ... presumably after we posted the story that McDaniel did time for molesting Mama June's child.

McDaniel's profile pic showed him cradling his granddaughter. There were various "welcome home" posts ... presumably from friends who found out he had been released from prison.

It's interesting ... June was absent from McDaniel's profile page, and we're guessing it's because they both knew it was wrong for her to hook up with him after he abused Anna.

Tyrese

Blasts Comedian After Sex for Pay Accusations ...

You're Done in This Town!

10/21/2014 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyrese Gibson Baby BoyTyrese went nuclear on the comedian who dared to drop some ridiculous casting couch accusations -- and safe to say, the comedian will NOT be laughing at this videotaped response ... but you will ... 'cause it's awesome. 

The comedian, Spanky Hayes, claims he was beaten out for the lead in "Baby Boy" because Tyrese performed sexual favors for director John Singleton. Tyrese recorded a rebuttal to Spanky, and the hysterical theme of it is ... "You know you done f**ked up, right?" 

Just for good measure -- Tyrese shot the whole comeback while walking around his mansion in a fur robe and smoking a cigar. Spanky, you've been served.

Lolo Jones

EMOTIONALLY BROKEN

After 'Dancing with the Stars' Loss

0917-lolo-jones-tmz-01

Lolo Jones says she felt broken, unlovable and embarrassed after she was eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars" Tuesday night ... and penned an emotional letter saying she's sick of being a loser.

The former Olympian unloaded on Facebook right after she got the boot from the ballroom ... saying, "When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me. I'm so tired of feeling embarrassed."

"I joined the other competitors upstairs and I couldn't force a smile on my face. I felt like vomiting and in between the other dances I went in a back room and fought back tears. I felt so broken. So unlovable. Embarssed."



Jones -- who's been RIPPED in the public over her lackluster performances at the Olympics over the years -- added, "I really wanted to stay on the show and have the layers of hurt wash away by showing the public how hard I work. I wanted to come away a victor for once. I wanted to do so good performing in public that the haters would stop teasing me."

"But that is my way of thinking. Not Gods. Instead I need to trust God that he would heal my heart. That I would not work so hard for the world to validate and redeem me but know that God already conquered that for me on the cross."

She concluded ... "My time was brief but the lesson is lasting. Thank you everyone who wrote me kind messages. You were helping me not fall into darkness."

Yeah, she's taking this pretty hard.

'Sons of Guns' Star Stephanie

Changes Her Story ...

Dad Raped Me Too

EXCLUSIVE

Sons Of Guns Sexual AbuseStephanie Hayden is now claiming she too was sexually abused as a child by her father, Will Hayden ... and will be providing information to law enforcement to aid in the prosecution of her dad ... TMZ has learned.

Stephanie -- who appeared on the Discovery reality show "Sons of Guns" with her father -- originally came to Will's defense last month after he got arresed for the alleged sexual abuse of his 12-year-old daughter.

We're told Stephanie is now recanting her original statement -- and plans on meeting with investigators in Baton Rouge as early as next week to provide specific details of the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered.

0905-sons-of-guns-stephanie-kris-ford-poem-launch-tmz-01Kris Ford, Stephanie's husband ... recently posted a poem on Facebook that appears to be directed at Will: "You fooled with my wife when she was young.  Sucking and groping, do you remember what was done?"

Stephanie went on FB to respond to Kris' poem ... telling a relative she gave her husband permission to post it. Both posts were eventually taken down.

An attorney for Will tells us, "After 45 shows and 20 years, this is the first I've heard of it. Her complaints arose only after her income from the show and [gun] shop stopped. She's still Will's daughter, and he loves her."

He thinks the rioters are people who failed in life and need to cast blame for their shortcomings.

He wrote, "Hopefully this is a reminder to the African Americans ( I always thought we just Americans. Oh, well.) that their President the [sic] voted in has only made things worse for them, not better."
