Cuba Gooding Jr.

I've Reached A Verdict on O.J.

12/17/2014 7:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

121714_cuba_gooding_jr_launch_v2Cuba Gooding Jr. is already stepping into OJ Simpson's Bruno Magli's ... and he's made up his mind about whether the Juice is guilty of murder. 

Outside the Paley Center in NYC ... Cuba told us he's excited about playing Simpson in Ryan Murphy's miniseries “American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson." But to really nail the role, Cuba says he has to go all in -- which raises the million dollar question.

So, does that mean believing OJ did it ... believing he didn't ... or KNOWING he did, and then lying to yourself?

Watch the video -- Cuba gives us an answer. It's cryptic, but telling.

So, we gotta ask ...

Britney Spears

My Women's Health Cover Is the Real Deal

Here's Proof!

EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears Womens Health Cover PhotoshoppedBritney Spears looks ... different on the cover of Women's Health Magazine, and while many people suspect a Photoshop job -- TMZ has obtained video that shows that's probably not the case.

Sources involved with the photoshoot tell TMZ ... Britney's facial changes can be attributed to a makeup technique called "contouring" ... which accounts for her slimmer nose and more defined cheek bones. 

Check out the video ... she looks exactly the same on set as she does in print. 

It really is Britney, bitch.

Derek Hough

Not Saying I'm NOT

Dating Kate Hudson

12/12/2014 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Derek Hough
 isn't ready to admit he's banging Kate Hudson -- but he's definitely not denying it either.

The "Dancing with The Stars" pro was in Boca Raton Thursday -- at a Tony Robbins seminar of all things -- when a photog popped the question about rumors he and newly single Kate are hooking up ... and his response is a little weird.

Hough and Huds were reportedly making out at an L.A. hot spot last Friday night -- he left out the front door, and she was spotted sneaking out the back -- sans engagement ring.

So, Derek ... if you're NOT with her ... why not just say so? Just sayin'.

Janice Dickinson was filled with contained emotion as she told our photog ... Beverly Johnson is an icon and a stand-up woman who told the truth about Bill Cosby.

Dickinson was out and about in Bev Hills Thursday when we asked her about Johnson, who says Cosby drugged her during an audition at his home for Cosby's wildly popular TV show.

You literally feel the emotion as she speaks. Janice is not so sure about "South Park" mocking Cosby this week. She's not protesting, but she doesn't see the funny in alleged sexual assault.

Keyshawn Johnson Model Cheating
Ex-NFL great Keyshawn Johnson is caught in the middle of a model's break-up with her husband -- who thinks she's been cheating with Johnson ... and has filled his court papers with lurid messages.

Alicia Tarry's husband just filed docs seeking an annulment of their 6-month marriage based on fraud. The docs include scores of Twitter direct messages Johnson and Tarry allegedly sent to each other.

The DMs include some racy language about arranging possible hook-ups between Alicia and Johnson. One DM says, "Send me a p**** shot." The response, "I'll get one in a few sorry have a guest over."

It appears Tarry's husband got hold of her phone or her Twitter account ... because one of the alleged DMs to Keyshawn -- says, "Please leave my wife Alicia alone."  

Alicia tells us she did not cheat with Keyshawn, and further ... she says the DMs "appear suspicious" and were illegally obtained.

Sources close to Keyshawn tell us he has "no idea what the guy's [the husband's] talking about."

The single lady was walking around The Grove Wednesday afternoon when we tried to hit her up about the latest between her and Chris Brown ... but she just shrugged us off. 

But then we asked about our story ... that Drake said, contrary to Chris' claim, he and Karrueche never hooked up because she wasn't his type.   

You gotta watch the video ... she agreed ... she's not. Drake's into really big butts and, well, hers is different.

Floyd Mayweather

Riled Up Killer Before Murder-Suicide

Dump Your Wife

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather
whipped his friend Earl Hayes into a frenzy over his wife's infidelity ... to the point Hayes gunned her down ... and now the LAPD wants to sit the boxer down for questioning ... multiple sources tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... Floyd was on FaceTime with his rapper friend Monday morning when the shots were fired. Now we're told, Floyd was telling Hayes he should leave his wife, Stephanie Moseley -- a well-known backup dancer and star of VH1's "Hit the Floor" -- because she was bad for his career.

As we reported, Hayes was distraught over what he believed was repeated infidelity, including a fling he said Stephanie had with Trey Songz.

One Mayweather source says Floyd challenged Hayes, saying he was weak for not leaving her.

At that point, as Floyd was on FaceTime, Hayes went off and said he was going to gun down Stephanie. We're told when the boxer realized Hayes was going to shoot Stephanie, he begged Hayes not to go through with it.

Our law enforcement sources say Hayes went into the bathroom and fired 10 to 12 shots as Stephanie was taking a bath. We're told she was hit multiple times.

Neighbors who heard the shots called the LAPD and cops rushed to the scene, but when they got to the door they heard another shot and retreated. That shot was Hayes taking his own life. 

The SWAT team showed up and broke down the door. Cops found Stephanie's body in the bathtub and Hayes was in the bedroom.

We're now told the LAPD wants to interview Floyd ... presumably because he was a witness to the murder-suicide.

Earl Hayes
-- the man who cops say shot his famous wife to death Monday and then killed himself -- was haunted by her infidelity ... in particular what he said was a fling she had with singer Trey Songz.

As TMZ reported, Stephanie Moseley -- the star of VH1's "Hit the Floor" -- was gunned down in their L.A. apartment as neighbors heard her screaming. Shots rang out, the SWAT team came, busted through the door and discovered the 2 bodies.

Sources connected with Hayes tell us ... around 2 years ago he separated from Stephanie because of what he says was her affair with Songz. They got back together but, as one friend put it, "He was crushed and never got over it." We're told he frequently brought up Songz.

Hayes accused Moseley of having multiple affairs with various other entertainers. She was a backup dancer who worked with numerous famous singers, including Chris Brown and Usher, but we're told Hayes never mentioned them as a source of conflict.

Hayes and Moseley married in 2008 and his friends say he loved her and tried rationalizing staying together.

TMZ broke the story ... Floyd Mayweather was on FaceTime with Hayes when he flew into a rage over Moseley's alleged infidelity and the boxer was witness to the murder/suicide.

We reached out to Songz and got no word back, but Monday night he tweeted this.

George Clooney
broke his vow by taking one ... and MAYBE the reason is becoming apparent.

Amal Clooney and her husband were leaving Soho House in West Hollywood when a photog took the pics this weekend.  

George -- who said he would never marry again -- is unwaveringly silent about stuff like this -- but the photos are definitely interesting.  

Coats generally don't hang out from your body, and the placement of her hands adds fuel to the fire.

The one thing we know for sure ... if they are having a kid it doesn't stand a chance of looking bad.

Christina Milian Lil Wayne RelationshipChristina Milian has been tight-lipped about her possible relationship with Lil Wayne, but she did let a few things slip when we asked her about the holidays.

Milian was out to dinner Wednesday at Boa Steakhouse with Karrueche Tran when we brought up Weezy's crazy gift-giving skills ... and asked what Christina was expecting under the tree this year?

Watch the video for her answer -- or watch just to see Karrueche and Christina ... who had a near nip-slip.

Either way. No judgment.
