Screw Ebola, Cuba Gooding Jr. has clearly been infected with another troubling ailment ... BIEBER-ITUS ... 'cause the Oscar winner can't seem to keep his shirt on these days.
Cuba was leaving Cafe Habana in Malibu Tuesday when we asked about his recent topless hockey celebration -- when he ripped off his top moments after scoring a mid-ice shot during an NHL shooting challenge.
Cuba's explanation? THAT'S HOW HE DO!!!
... and then he ripped off his shirt again.
Bieber-itus ... it's spreading.

Hard to deny Kendall Jenner's place in the fashion world now that she's walked the runway at the Chanel show during Paris Fashion Week -- but is she really worthy of such a gig?
Kendall was in great company -- highest paid model in the world Gisele Bundchen was also in the show ... so, pretty impressive for the 18-year-old. She's only been in the biz for a short time, and some say she only gets high-profile jobs because of who she is.
So we ask ...

So ... Rory McIlroy is pretty ripped.
Dude just posted a shirtless pic on his Instagram page -- sporting nothing more than a red wig and a kilt ... along with a message that reads, "Got into the Scottish swing of things last night with Stevie G!"
Gonna take a wild guess that alcohol was involved ... considering the way he dominated in Europe's big Ryder Cup victory over the weekend.
But hard not to notice Rory's physique ... which could explain why Caroline Wozniacki took the breakup so hard.
6:19 AM PT -- Apparently, McIlroy wasn't the only golfer up for topless partying last night ... because 2 guys from Team USA also went with the kilt + wig look.
Check out the pic of Ricky Fowler and Bubba Watson -- who LOST -- yet still decided to rage after the tourney.
She's a Handful!

Val Kilmer is half the man he used to be ... and we're told he shed the pounds the old fashioned way with determination ... and walking his ass off.
We're told 'Iceman' looked in the mirror and realized he had let himself go ... and decided to change everything.
There was no personal chef or magic diet pill ... just healthy eating and exercise, especially long walks on the beach by his home in Malibu ... which doesn't suck.
By the way ... walking on the beach is good exercise ... but not as good as playing volleyball with shirtless dudes.

'Booty' Video Triggers Lube Deal
9/22/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez looks so good in lube in her new "Booty" music video with Iggy Azalea -- she now stands to make a bundle off a company that makes the stuff.
Reps for Doc Johnson Lube fired off the sticky to proposal to J.Lo after seeing the video last week -- and we're told they were especially inspired by the shots of her covered in a liquid they believe to be personal lubricant.
Bottom line -- Doc Johnson wants to be in the J.Lo butt business ... and the company is offering her a year's worth of its lubrication gel for free to prove it. The good doc also wants to discuss a long term sponsorship deal, if Jennifer's interested.
Something tells us this is NOT right up her alley -- but can't knock 'em for trying.
