041216-megan-fox-nothefather-instagramNOT any of these guys!

Megan Fox is giving us a giant nudge nudge, wink wink to the identity of her baby daddy -- and it looks like she's gone back to the Brian Austin Green well.

Megan didn't immediately confirm the pregnancy Monday night when she hit a Hollywood event, and debuted her baby bump. So, y'know how that can get awkward.

But she just posted shots with 3 of her male co-stars -- Shia LaBeouf, Will Arnett and Jake Johnson -- and said, #notthefather.

So, all signs point to her estranged husband ... despite her filing to divorce BAG.

Unless ...


Ray Parker Jr. I Know Who They're NOT Gonna Call For New 'Ghostbusters' ...

4/12/2016 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ray Parker Jr. wrote one of the most iconic movie themes ever for the original 'Ghostbusters' movies ... but, ironically, his phone isn't ringing at all for the new all chick version.

We got Ray outside Mr Chow in Bev Hills where he filled us in on what he obviously considers a diss, and he says it even goes beyond working on the film. In short, Ray says he's getting NO respect.

There is some rocky history -- Huey Lewis sued RPJ and Columbia Pictures for ripping off "I Want A New Drug" for the 'Ghostbusters' theme. They settled out of court.

Ray's still holding out hope, since the film doesn't come out until the summer -- but based on the trailer, sounds like he shouldn't wait by the phone.

They've moved on ...

'Barbershop' Movies Cut Too Close to My Famous Play ... Writer Sues

4/11/2016 4:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


update_graphic_red_barThe studios behind 'Barbershop' -- Warner Bros and MGM -- say the lawsuit "falsely attempts to discredits the gifted writers, producers, and directors" who have worked on the franchise. They also say they intend to go after Lawrence for filing an "exploitative suit. update_grey_gray_bar"Barbershop: The Next Cut" is supposed to hit theaters Friday -- but a playwright wants a judge to shut it down immediately, because it rips off his stage play ... according to the guy's lawsuit.

JD Lawrence says all 3 'Barbershop' flicks, and the Showtime TV series, bear an uncanny resemblance to scenes from "Scissors" ... a play he wrote and toured around the country from 1998 to 2001.

He says his play was set in a barbershop in a black neighborhood, and focused on the shop's importance to the community ... which, of course, is the same as the movies.

Lawrence says the similarities include ... characters, plot lines, and events. He points out "Scissors" has an elderly owner -- just like Cedric the Entertainer's character, Eddie. And both feature similar discussions about the O.J. Simpson murder trial -- and white barbers who get clowned ... for being white. 

He's suing Warner Bros and Showtime for at least $20 million, and wants to block the release of 'The Next Cut.' Tick-tock ... Friday's coming up real quick.

Paul Walker's Daughter Dad Would've Made $80 Million

4/10/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0408-paul-meadow-walker-tmz-universal-courtesy-everett-collection-instagram-01Paul Walker could have banked up to $80 million off his acting had his life not been cut short.

Universal executives had already committed to 3 more 'Fast and Furious' films while Paul and company were filming the seventh installment ... this according to legal docs in the wrongful death case filed by Paul's 17-year-old daughter Meadow.   

Meadow claims the additional movies -- plus other projects -- would have made his bank account swell by anywhere between $30 and $80 million.

Paul's earning prospects was a big factor in the settlement Meadow struck with the estate of the driver, Roger Rodas. The estate -- most likely the insurance co. -- paid her $10.1 million.

According to the docs ... Meadow and her mom got court permission to use $2 million from the settlement to buy a new house. 


'Star Wars' Anakin Skywalker Schizophrenia Triggers Jail To Hospital Move

4/10/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0408-jake-lloyd-lucas-films-everett-collection-01Jake Lloyd, who played Anakin Skywalker in 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace,' has been moved from a jail cell to a psychiatric facility. 

Jake's been behind bars since June for taking cops on a chase that exceeded speeds of 100 mph.

The actor's mom, Lisa, tells us authorities reached the conclusion he needed help more than punishment, because he suffers from schizophrenia ... thus the move.

Lisa says she spoke with Jake last week and can already see an improvement in Jake's personality.


We're told there's no timetable for his release. His family wants him to take his time to get healthy.

Rodriguez told a photog in Bev Hills she wishes she had passed on the project because she feels exploited. 

TMZ broke the story ... Rodriguez talked about her spiritual journey while using the psychedelic drug, Ayahuasca for the documentary, and dropped a bombshell -- that she was jealous Paul experienced death before her.

Chris Hemsworth Location, Location ... Cashing In On Two L.A. Homes

4/7/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0406_chris_hemsworth_malibu_home_launchChris Hemsworth's move back to Oz meant ditching 2 gorgeous homes in L.A. -- which in turn meant lining his pockets with an extra $2.6 million! 

First the Malibu home ... Chris listed the 6,800 sq ft, 5 bedroom Point Dume spot for $6.5 million last month, but he got $7 mil from the new buyers. Pretty sweet, considering Chris bought it for $4.8 mil. 

As for the smaller Santa Monica condo -- it's a mere 1,200 sq ft and 2 bedrooms ... Chris unloaded that for $1.25 mil after spending $820k on it. 

The Malibu home closes Monday, and the condo sold last week with listing agent Ryan Davis. As we previously reported Hemsworth ditched L.A. to raise his 3 kids in his native Australia.

4/6/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One man's poster is another man's cherished memory ... 'cause Terry Crews says not only was he not embarrassed he got dunked on by Shaq ... he was actually HONORED.

Terry was out at LAX when we asked him about the video that's gone viral ... Shaq punishing Crews with a one-handed tomahawk blast in a celebrity game last Sunday.

One might think TC -- a former NFL player -- might be a little miffed he got yammed on in front of the whole world ... but he tells our guy, "If you get posterized by Shaq it's all good."

Must be ... Patrick Ewing used to get paid for it.

Check out the poster moment below.

There are two very SHOCKING revelations we learned when we got Compton rapper Problem out in L.A. earlier this week.

1. Kevin Costner is from Compton.

We got Problem leaving House of Macau in Hollywood and asked who he thought was the most famous person in the history of C-O-M-P-T-O-N is.

He answered Dr. Dre and Easy E -- to which we informed him that Costner is from Compton, to which he informed us that he has some questionable film taste. 

BTW -- Problem's homeboy answered "Waterworld" so ... it could be worse.
