Jackie Chan says he's "VERY ASHAMED" of his son Jaycee -- claiming his 31-year-old son humiliated his family after getting busted for pot in China.
Chan's son was caught in a huge drug crackdown last week -- with cops saying they found about 3.5 ounces of the green stuff in Jaycee's Beijing home.
Now, his famous father has penned a bizarre letter to the public -- blasting his kid ... and essentially saying he FAILED as a father.
"When I first heard the news, I was absolutely enraged" ... Jackie wrote in a letter posted on his official website.
"As a public figure, I feel very ashamed; as his dad, I'm very sad and disappointed. But the person who feels heartbroken the most is his mom."
"I hope our younger generation will learn from Jaycee's mistake and stay far away from drug abuse."
"I would like to take this opportunity and say to Jaycee: you’ve done something wrong and you have to be responsible for the consequences. I’m your dad and I’ll always be with you. We will face the road ahead of us together."
"I should also take some of this responsibility because as his dad, I didn’t teach him well."
"Therefore, on behalf of Jaycee and myself, I extend our deepest apologies to everyone for the negative impact this has caused on society. Thank you."

We're told Kim took Mason out for the afternoon so he didn't go stir crazy in the Montage hotel in Bev Hills, where mommy Kourtney, Daddy Scott and sister Penelope are staying because they claim the house they bought from Keyshawn Johnson is full of dangerous black mold.

Refuses To Talk About Kardashians
Ask Me About Me ... Please
8/19/2014 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
10:27 A.M. PDT -- We're told Brody will attend the opening ... but will no longer give 1-on-1 interviews.
Brody Jenner needs to get a grip ... he's courting the media to interview him and only one thing is off limits ... the thing people care about.
Brody's promoting the opening of a Dave & Buster's in Hollywood ... and is courting the media for 1-on-1 interviews ... but we're told any talk about the Kardashians/Jenners is out of bounds.
Why he skipped Kim's wedding? ... Next question.
Why he hung Bruce out to dry on the PCH? ... Nice try.
His love/hate relationship with Kris? ... Uhhh, no.
Oh, you can ask him about the 7 "Keeping Up The Kardashians" episodes on which he appeared ... just avoid bringing up Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall or Kris. You know, pretty much anybody else on the show whose name begins with "K."
Now the list of what's left to talk about that's interesting.
Won't Free Widow of Criminal Charges
8/18/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Casey Kasem's widow is NOT off the hook just because she's thwarting the efforts of cops to get a full autopsy ... to determine if she committed elder abuse ... because we've learned cops are confident they have the goods to nail her.
We've confirmed Jean Kasem is moving Casey's body from Montreal to Oslo, Norway, where Casey's body will be buried.
TMZ broke the story ... the Santa Monica Police Dept. is investigating Jean ... because they say they have evidence she compromised his health by taking him on a wild, multi-state ride to evade the rest of her family ... causing him to get an infection that contributed to his death.
Law enforcement sources now tell TMZ ... although they'd like to have a full autopsy, detectives believe they have enough evidence to present the case to prosecutors. They've interviewed doctors and others who examined Casey during the car ride ... and cops say it's incriminating stuff.
We're told the case will be submitted to the L.A. County D.A. ... soon.

Sylvester Stallone is destined to do an "Expendables 15" if genetics has anything to do with it ... because we got photos of his 92-year-old mom doing CrossFit!
Jackie Stallone is a certified bad ass ... with no machine in the gym out of bounds.
During her workout, Jackie hits the rowing machine, rings, medicine ball ... and even gets in some squats before knocking out a few bench presses.
It's obvious where Sly got his physique ... but something tells us he won't be able to keep it up nearly as long as mom.
Kendra and Hank
Reality Show Drama BS?
8/16/2014 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Something's fishy with Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett ... in the wake of the rumored marriage problems ... we got them on vacation together and it doesn't appear to be for show.
They were eating at a cozy beachside restaurant in Costa Rica Friday ... and the person who snapped the pic says there was no evidence of animosity ... quite the opposite.
The photog tells us they happily ate their meal with the fam without a single reality show camera in sight. Translation: They weren't putting up a front.
It doesn't track with the new trailer for their show ... where Kendra claims she flushed her wedding ring down the toilet after Hank reportedly had an affair with a transexual or two.
So, we gotta ask ...

Yonce and Hova are only together in one photo ... Jay is sitting in a go-kart behind his wife as she looks fierce in her driver's seat.
7 Kids Go Hollywood!
Making BANK Off Dad's Biopic
8/16/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-NFL great Kurt Warner's set to rake in almost a million dollars for a movie about his life, and he's sharing the wealth by writing his SEVEN kids into the deal.
FOX bought the movie rights to Kurt's biography "All Things Possible" a year ago, but since 5 of his kids are under age -- a minors contract has to be filed with the courts. Turns out dear ol' dad was very generous.
TMZ Sports obtained a copy of the contracts for Jada (13), Kade (15), Elijah (10), and twins Sienna and Sierra (8) -- and according to the docs ... they will split 25% of all salaries the family earns. Kurt and his wife Brenda's 25-year-old son Zachary, who suffered brain damage as a child ... also gets a 5% cut.
The other 70% will be split between Kurt, Brenda, and their adult daughter Jesse.
So far the family's only earned $135K ... a down payment for the movie rights. If FOX goes forward, and shoots the movie they'll get another $715K. The floodgates really open if the movie is a box office hit -- they'll get a bunch of bonuses, potentially as high as $200K.
Kurt deserves way more than golf balls or a tie next Father's Day.
... But What's She So Happy About?

1:45 PM PT -- Sherrie is now being held without bail, and the D.A's Office says she'll be behind bars for several months. We're told she failed to appear for a prior family court case, so a judge remanded her bail until her first hearing in that case ... which is November 4th.
Smile, Sherrie Daly ... you've just been tossed behind bars!!!
Golfer John Daly's ex-wife was jailed Friday in Memphis, TN because their teenage son missed too much school without an excuse.
The Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports the boy missed more than 15 days, without an excuse, during two separate periods: August 2012 - February 2013 and August 2013 - February 2014.
Daly was booked on multiple charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor. She will go before a judge on Monday and could get sentenced to almost a year behind bars.
A spokesperson for the Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports, "[Daly is] the poster child for truancy because of her notoriety."

8/14/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The test results are in, and according to a DNA lab ... Nerlens Noel ... YOU ARE THE FATHER OF A BEAUTIFUL 14-MONTH-OLD BABY BOY!!!!
We broke the story ... the 20-year-old Philadelphia 76er initially acknowledged he fathered the kid in a legal doc -- but then backtracked and demanded DNA proof ... which TMZ Sports has learned he got done last month.
According to the docs, Noel admits he's had "limited contact" with his son -- and agrees Jamie, the boy's mother ... should have primary custody.
Noel is now asking the court to determine a "minimal level of child support."
Attempt to Keep Kids in U.S. FAILS
Freaks Out In Court
8/13/2014 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kelly Rutherford burst into tears and freaked out after a judge shut down her last ditch effort to keep her kids in the U.S.
Rutherford claimed another judge had illegally awarded custody of her 2 kids to her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, who lives in France. Rutherford claims the judge effectively deported the kids.
So she was in federal court Wednesday ... asking a judge to step in, but the federal judge said he didn't have the power. Outside the courtroom, Rutherford broke down, saying "My own country won't save my children and I pay taxes!"
The judge gave Rutherford a ray of hope, saying although he didn't have jurisdiction over custody, he would set up a conference call Friday with him, Rutherford and Giersch's lawyer ... to figure out a way for Giersch -- who has immigration issues -- to come back to the U.S. to live.
The clock is ticking ... if the judge's Hail Mary doesn't work ... the kids go to France August 19.
