*** WARNING -- DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO WHILE EATING ***
Gene Simmons believes in the five-second rule a little too much, because Monday he ate a piece of his hamburger -- AFTER IT FELL ON THE GROUND! AT LAX!!!!!
Simmons was chatting up a photog while eating a burger -- most likely from his restaurant, Rock & Brews, at LAX. Not only did Simmons snarf down the floor meat ... he flaunted it before throwing it down.
No burger can be THAT good.
Parents Knew Nothing of Arrest
No Idea Where She Is Now
9/30/2014 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The parents of Amanda Bynes are in the dark about their daughter's arrest and have no idea where she is or what she's been doing since her conservatorship ended.
Bynes' father Rick said he and his wife learned about Amanda's arrest from the media ... they weren't the ones who bailed her out. Rick repeatedly said, "We don't know," when asked about Amanda.
It's interesting … Rick said he thought his daughter might be in New York, but TMZ has learned she's staying in the Hollywood area right now.
As TMZ first reported, Amanda moved out of her parents' house once the conservatorship ended earlier this month … but many people close to Amanda feel it was a terrible mistake not to extend it.
We're told Amanda is smoking a lot of weed and is off her anti-psychotic meds for Schizophrenia and bipolarity.
We're also told she was busted for DUI because she was under the influence of Adderall.
Taxes, Schmaxes ...
I Gotta See Snooki's Baby!
9/26/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Situation is so confident he'll beat the federal tax fraud rap he's facing ... he'd rather talk about more important things -- like Snooki popping out another kid.
Sitch was leaving a vitamin store in NJ Friday morning when a photog tried to grill him about the tax charges, but when he found out Snooki had delivered ... he was all about the baby.
Interesting that Situation didn't know already -- apparently he and his 'Jersey Shore' co-star don't stay in touch that much anymore.
His excuse for missing the news though was classic GTL.
We Don't Care About Kim Kardashian
9/26/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Parisian police couldn't care less Kim Kardashian was attacked while making her way through paparazzi at a Fashion Week event ... they say the assault means nothing to them ... and don't understand why Americans make such a big deal of it.
An official from the Prefecture de police de Paris said unlike the cops in the U.S. ... the Paris police don't become involved in such "minimal situations."
So cops tell us they will take NO action against Vitalii Sediuk for trying to tackle Kim to the ground.
It's a pretty laissez-faire attitude ... considering Princess Diana was killed in Paris 17-years ago while trying to flee from paparazzi.
As we previously reported ... Kim and Kanye beefed up their security while in Paris.

Jason Aldean's got moves ... and he had to use 'em quickly last night to avoid getting trampled on stage -- and the video is HILARIOUS!
Aldean was playing a gig Thursday night in Chula Vista, CA -- just hours after we broke the story of his engagement to Brittany Kerr.
During one of his songs an overzealous fan jumped on stage and tried to hug Aldean. You gotta see how Jason handled the situation ... it's classic.
This would have ended much differently at a Tim McGraw concert.
Kim & Kanye
Armed Guards & Armored Cars
After Paris Attack
9/26/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are bulletproof -- or will be very soon -- because they're ramping up their personal security -- complete with ARMORED VEHICLES -- after a frightening assault in Paris.
Our Kim and Kanye sources say ... K&K were "freaked out" after Kim was almost tackled to the ground by a crazy man. They're especially upset because the Paris paparazzi are following them in hordes ... and crowd control has become extremely difficult.
Our sources say ... they've hired 2 additional teams of armed bodyguards who will encircle them whenever they're in public during Fashion Week.
We're told Kim and Kanye will NOT retain the additional security when they come back to the U.S. They feel Paris has just become too insane for them to handle.
It's pretty ironic ... remember Halle Berry said she wanted to move to Paris because the paparazzi were less aggressive?
At Paris Fashion Week Event (CRAZY VIDEO)
9/25/2014 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian was tackled and almost knocked to the ground in an alarming assault during a Paris Fashion Week event.
Kim, Kanye and Kris Jenner arrived at a fashion show Thursday ... and several hundred people -- including a gaggle of photogs -- were squeezed in to watch them arrive.
As Kim gets out of the car, a guy lunges at her, tackling her legs and tries to pull her to the ground.
You see security jump in, subdue the guy ... and then quickly escort Kim and Kris into the building.
TMZ has learned the attacker may be Vitalii Sediuk -- the Ukrainian prankster who did the same thing to Leo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Will Smith. According to his rep, Sediuk is taking credit for lunging at Kim.
He wasn't arrested on the scene -- but our Kardashian sources say the paparazzi actually turned on Sediuk and held him down while Kim was whisked away.

Goes Public with Skateboarding Skills
9/24/2014 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There was no private skatepark for Justin Bieber in Venice Tuesday ... so he took his board to the super popular Venice Skate Park ... and he kinda held his own.
Bieber tried his best to hang with the regulars, and while he did nail a trick or two ... he failed over and over again ... just like every skateboarder does.
Then again, when he finally did land a trick -- Justin immediately went back to d-bag mode. You gotta see his shirtless celebration.
Humility is a thing. For some people.
Sorry Hackers & Creeps ...
