John Singleton R. Kelly's No Cosby Just Has Lots of Girlfriends

7/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Singleton doesn't see anything wrong, or illegal, about how R. Kelly's leading his personal life, because the women living with him are adults making adult decisions.

We got the famed director out in NYC and he made it clear ... he just doesn't see what all the controversy is about, and told us he thinks the Bill Cosby comparisons are totally unfair to Kelly.

We can always count on John to drop some knowledge -- like when he schooled us on Tupac.

And the award for best drunken Comic-Con video goes to .... Ezra Miller, aka The Flash!

Ezra, who plays the speedy guy was swarmed by fans Saturday night in San Diego, and dropped some Flash trivia on them ... regarding booze. The way he explains it, his "Justice League" character can't help but handle his liquor.

Not sure that's true for Ezra though. Anyway, one fan wasn't buying it and jokingly asked to smell Ezra's breath. He got way more than a whiff of his breath ... he got a full-on kiss!

Fan appreciation is what Comic-Con's all about.

Well, that and sex.

Sin City's Frank Miller Sued by Ex-Manager ... Your New Partner Screwed Me, Called Me a 'Bad Jew'

7/19/2017 5:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Graphic novel icon Frank Miller let his conniving producing partner screw his faithful business manager out of more than a million bucks ... according to a new lawsuit.

Mark Lichtman says he worked for Miller for 28 years -- on projects like "Sin City," "300," "The Spirit" and "Sin City 2" -- until "producer" Silenn Thomas came on the scene in 2006. According to docs, Thomas started defaming Lichtman in order to force him out of the picture.

In the suit, Lichtman says his contract entitled him to 10 percent commission from all of Miller's projects, and everything was copacetic until Thomas started calling him incompetent and senile. He says Miller's attorney told him he was fired in August 2014.

Even after that, Lichtman says Thomas sent him nasty emails calling him a "bad jew" for demanding his 10 percent for Miller's projects. Then things got sad in 2016 -- Lichtman says he heard Frank really missed him and wondered where he'd gone ... leading Lichtman to believe Frank never wanted to fire him.

Still, Lichtman's suing Miller and Thomas for more than $1 million.

Sources close to Miller say the lawsuit is suspiciously timed, since Comic Con's going down this weekend. They add there's little merit to these claims.

Debra Tate Chill, J Law Fans! She IS Pretty, But ...

7/18/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sharon Tate's sister is trying to calm Jennifer Lawrence's fans -- instead of saying J Law isn't pretty enough to play Sharon ... she just thinks she's not the right kinda pretty.

Debra Tate's been getting blasted on social media ever since her now infamous comment to us about Jennifer potentially filling the Sharon role in Quentin Tarantino's Manson murders movie.

She tried to walk it back with Team J Law, but there's still some brutal honesty. Deb did admit even her first pick, Margot Robbie, might not be right for the job.

For the record, she's reached out to Quentin about the movie. Debra controls the rights to Sharon's likeness, and therefore wants to discuss her sister's portrayal.

Timberlake obliged and held up the baby for all to see ... while Steph busted out the "Circle of Life" intro.

Speaking of 'Lion King,' Donald Glover is playing Simba in the new movie ... how awesome is that?! 

Al Pacino's 1st Pics As Joe Paterno Child Rapist-Protecting Football Coach

7/17/2017 9:57 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's one of the first pics of Al Pacino on a NY movie set as Joe Paterno -- the disgraced Penn State football coach who concealed the criminal actions of a serial child rapist. 

Pacino is playing Paterno in an upcoming HBO movie about the Penn State scandal centered around PSU assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky, who habitually raped children at the Penn State athletic facilities. 

Investigators later determined Paterno -- along with other PSU officials -- concealed information about Sandusky from University honchos and law enforcement. 

Paterno -- who famously nearly/probably crapped himself during a televised football game in 2006 -- was fired in 2011, one month after Sandusky was arrested. 

Paterno died 2 months later from cancer.

Shia LaBeouf's mugging for the camera, but no police involvement this time -- instead, he's spreading the love on the J-O-B.

Despite the violent and racist rants he made during his arrest for public intoxication ... people on set tell us Shia's remained a model actor while shooting. Looks like he's letting the rest of the town see that side of himself. As we told you, Shia also says he wants to make good with Savannah cops.

Baby steps.

Quentin Tarantino Don't Even Ask If JLaw's Pretty Enough To Play Sharon Tate

7/16/2017 7:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Quentin Tarantino does not seem down with the sister of Sharon Tate, who told TMZ Jennifer Lawrence wasn't pretty enough to play her sibling in Quentin's rumored upcoming Manson flick.

We got Quentin and his freshly ringed fiancee leaving Madeo Saturday in WeHo, and the director did not seem like he was into interacting with the small crowd that gathered outside the restaurant. He seemed even less interested in yakking about Debra Tate's comment, that Margo Robbie is the one who should play Sharon.

A Tarantino movie on the Manson murders ... awesome.


Prince Harry & Harry Styles Pretty Harry Situation

7/14/2017 6:56 AM PDT

It's almost too much Harry for a photo.

Britain's 2 favorite Harry's -- Prince Harry and Harry Styles -- came face-to-face Thursday night in London.

It happened at the at the "Dunkirk" premiere at the Odeon in Leicester Square. It's the 1D guy's debut role in a movie, and it happens to be about the WWII battle at Dunkirk -- which explains why the royal one was all ribboned up.

It's not the first time they've met -- as many assumed. They hooked up in 2015 at a Royal concert event in London. Y'know the red headed Harry's jammed out to "Story of My Life" more than a few times, right?

Shia LaBeouf I Don't Need to Drink My Problem is When I Do

7/14/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf is not an alcoholic, because he doesn't have an uncontrollable urge to drink ... his problem is when he starts drinking he can't stop ... this according to his lawyer.

Savannah lawyer Doug Andrews tells TMZ Shia is resolved not to have another drink while he finishes shooting his movie, "The Peanut Butter Falcon." As we reported, people on the set told us Shia has been incredibly professional, reliable and sober since shooting began and they were shocked to see on TMZ Saturday that he was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

Andrews says the movie shoot will not be interrupted by the arrest or Shia's promise to get help for his addiction. It's interesting -- Shia calls it an addiction although he says he doesn't feel the need to drink.

Andrews says Shia will get professional help once the movie is wrapped, but he's not in danger because he simply won't drink.

The lawyer also says he and Shia want to do more than just cop a plea and pay a fine ... they want to make good to Savannah cops and the community for Shia's rant which, at times, got racist. Andrews says he and Shia haven't decided what the actor will do, but promises it will be meaningful.
