Arsenio Hall Sinead O'Connor's Crazy Prince Didn't Get Drugs From Me!

5/2/2016 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0502-sinead-oconnor-arsenio-hall-prince-TMZ-GETTY-02Sinead O'Connor is blaming Prince's drug problems on his good friend, Arsenio Hall -- but he says the Irish singer is totally full of it.

Sinead went on the attack, saying ... "Two words for the DEA investigating where (sic) prince got his drugs over the decades ... Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch)."

She went on to say on her Facebook page ... she's actually reported Arsenio to the Carver County Sheriff's department, which is investigating Prince's death.

A rep for Arsenio says Sinead's claim is "absolutely false, ridiculous and absurd."

She can thank Prince for writing her biggest hit, "Nothing Compares 2 U" -- but fact is, Sinead was NOT close to Prince ... and she's made other outrageous claims about him. She once alleged he punched her and held her against her will at Paisley Park.

The Kardashians Radio Silent On Rob's Engagement

4/5/2016 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-jenner-kardashian-family-TMZ-01The Kardashians live and breathe on social media ... but in the 12 hours plus since Rob and Blac Chyna's engagement not a single tweet, Instagram post or Facebook update about the news.

Zilch.

Snapchat? Nada.

They've all been on social media posting but have made no mention of the engagement

For a family that thrives on the millions of followers, they've not congratulated the family's only son and brother. 

This is silence that speaks volumes. 

Bernie Sanders 'Bernie Baby' Dead

Breaking News

0303-bernie-baby-2016-SOUXSIE_LOMAS-FACEBOOK-01The 4-month old infant who was famously known as the "Bernie Baby" on social media ... has died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Oliver Jack Carter Lomas-Davis's mother Souxsie says her son died on February 25. She made the sad announcement on Facebook. 

Oliver became a phenom when his mom dressed him up in a wig and glasses to look like Sen. Bernie Sanders and posted the pic online.

The senator actually got to meet his youngest (we're guessing) supporter a few weeks ago during a rally in Las Vegas.

Mark Zuckerberg Scolds FB Employees For 'Black Lives Matter' Feud

2/26/2016 9:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0226-mark-kuckerberg-tmz-01Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook experience is starting to look like the average FB user's -- 'cause it's getting all racial, and he's pissed about it. 

Facebook HQ has a "signature wall" where employees can write messages. Some have chosen to write "black lives matter" ... but others have been crossing it out and replacing it with "all lives matter."

Zuckerberg, in an internal FB post obtained by Gizmodo, called the defacing "unacceptable," adding he was "disappointed by this disrespectful behavior."

He went on to say they are investigating the incidents.

Mark Zuckerberg Out for a Run ... Looking Like POTUS

2/25/2016 8:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-mark-zuckerberg-berlin-running-SPLASH-01Mark Zuckerberg went for a casual jog Wednesday afternoon in Berlin ... with at least 5 dudes in stride to watch his back, front, and sides at all times. 

The Facebook billionaire -- who pledged to run 365 miles in 2016 -- was recently the target of threats from ISIS, so you can understand the large entourage. Despite the tight coverage, Zuck's guys are not actual bodyguards, just FB execs traveling with him.

But you know they have his back. It takes a village ... to watch $47 billion out for a run.

Mark Zuckerberg Aqua Baby

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
EXCLUSIVE

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.

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

'Sons of Guns' Star Target of Gun Violence

EXCLUSIVE

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.
