Reggie Bush

Compares Mike Brown To Palestinians

11/25/2014 6:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125_reggie_bush_ferguson_instagram_postReggie Bush just compared Ferguson to Israel -- suggesting Israelis are shooting unarmed Palestinians ... the same way Officer Darren Wilson shot Mike Brown. 

The Detroit Lions star went to Instagram and posted a photo of a man holding a sign that reads, "The Palestinian people know what mean to be shot while unarmed because of your ethnicity #ferguson #justice."

Bush also included a caption -- "No matter who you are, what color skin you have, where you live, we are all in this together! This isn't a Ferguson problem it's a Global Problem! We need change NOW! What happened to humanity? #JusticeForMikeBrown."

Question is ...

Kirk Cameron

'God Hates F*gs' Vid Is a Smear Campaign ...

I Love Everyone

11/24/2014 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

112414_kirk_cameron_launch_v5Kirk Cameron says a video of him blurting out, "God hates f*gs" ... is old news -- from 15-20 years ago -- and is merely being reposted by detractors, angry at the success of his latest Christian film.

The clip shows a conversation between Cameron and Ray Comfort -- his partner in a Christian outreach website -- where Kirk says, "God hates f*gs, and you're going to Hell."

It's obvious the video is edited -- and a rep for Cameron tells us the statement is blatantly "taken out of context." He says Cameron's latest film, "Saving Christmas" is doing very well ... and claims angry Atheists cut up the vid and posted it in an attempt "to defame him."

The rep adds Kirk loves all people.

Casey Kasem

I Believe in Reincarnation

Via Forest Lawn

11/24/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Kasem Reincarnation
Casey Kasem wanted to be buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in L.A. because he felt that was his path to reincarnation ... this according to his longtime friend and security guard.

Rick Hernandez says he worked as the Executive Security Officer for Casey and his family for years, and became one of the famed DJ's closest friends.

Hernandez wrote a letter to the judge in the case Casey's daughter filed to bring her dad's body back from Norway, where it's been rotting since August.  

Hernandez says in the letter ... one day he asked Casey if he believed in God or the afterlife. He says Casey responded ... he believed in reincarnation. Hernandez asked if he planned to be cremated or buried, and Kasem responded that he wanted to be buried and specified Forest Lawn.

The letter wasn't enough to sway the judge, who ruled Kerri had no authority to undermine Casey's wife Jean, who has kept the body in a Norway mortuary for 3 months.

'I'm Not Gay No More' Guy

Church Threatens Legal Action

Over Song

11/21/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120-andrew-caldwell-youtube-01

The church where the "I'm Not Gay No More" guy went straight is not only intolerant toward gays, they have an intense dislike for people who steal their tunes.

The Church of God in Christ insists Andrew Caldwell call in the lawyers ... because their now-famous parishioner jazzed up his hilarious moment with background singers and released it on iTunes.  

A church honcho says they're ordering him to stop hawking the song partly because they own the audio, but also because they feel Andrew is making a mockery of the service ... and that's hilarious.

But Andrew's calling BS, telling TMZ he's copyrighted the song ... and says it's his voice and only he -- not even God -- can claim ownership of it.

So maybe the dispute will be settled by a higher power -- Judge Judy.

The man who almost broke the Internet for screaming, "I'm not gay no more" has a new moneymaker ... a musical version of his anti-penile mantra that he's hawking on iTunes.

Andrew Caldwell's vow -- in front of 40,000 people at the Church of God in Christ's Holy Convocation Convention in St. Louis -- is now heavily auto-tuned, with backup vocals and plenty of catchy beats.

He'll impress the ladies for sure ... as he's already sold more than 200 copies.

Can Broadway be next?

Justin Bieber

I'm on a Mission ...

Like An Actual Religious Mission

EXCLUSIVE

1118-justin-bieber-praying-01
Justin Bieber
 is on a self-proclaimed "mission" to learn how to spread the word of God.

Bieber is ensconced in Rancho Mirage outside Palm Springs, where he will spend 2 weeks with a pastor. This Biebs has flirted with religion in the past ... as TMZ first reported he was baptized this past summer in a NYC bathtub.

Bieber has exiled himself from friends, alcohol, weed and everything else that doesn't involve the good Lord.   

It's unclear if Biebs will take the next step and become a full-blown proselytizer.

Check out this pic we got of Bieber Monday in Rancho Mirage ... the book by his side is "Occupy All Streets," which teaches how to spread the word and resist bad temptations.

See you in two weeks, Lil Twist!

Nicki Minaj

I Got a New Jewish BF

So I'm Not Anti-Semitic

11/11/2014 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Nicki Minaj is incredulous people think she hates Jews -- even though her music video plays like a Nazi anthem -- because she made it with the help of Alex ... her new Jewish guy.

Minaj was defiant Monday as she arrived at LAX, cursing photogs who dared to ask her about all the Nazi-esque imagery in the lyric video for "Only."

Nicki Minaj Only Music Video
Minaj also said on Twitter Tuesday both the producer and the person in charge of the video are Jewish. She said the inspiration for the video came from the Adult Swim show "Metalocalypse" and the movie "Sin City."

Nicki then apologized, saying, "I didn't come up w/the concept, but I'm very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I'd never condone Nazism in my art."

Terry Bradshaw

'I Wouldn't Have Had Bieber

at Steelers Prayer Service'

11/10/2014 12:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1110_justin-bieber-terry-bradshaw_gettyNFL legend Terry Bradshaw tells TMZ Sports he doesn't believe Justin Bieber jinxed the Pittsburgh Steelers ... but he does have an issue with JB at the team prayer service the night before the game.

As you know ... the Steelers lost to the lowly NY Jets this weekend -- and a lot of people are blaming the "Justin Bieber Curse" since he joined the team for a pregame prayer ceremony Saturday night.

1110_Bieber-and-Steeler-Cam-Heyward_twitter_SUB"It's automatically assumed he's a jinx," Bradshaw says. "That's ridiculous."

But it's what Bradshaw said next that was interesting ... "Would Bieber be a disruption? Well, I wouldn't have had him there."

"The only time I recall the Steelers teams I played on letting outsiders worship with us was at the Super Bowl ... and it was with our families because they traveled with us."

Bradshaw says he takes his bible study very seriously -- and believes the purpose of a private prayer ceremony for NFL teams is to keep the focus on god.

So, when a huge megastar like Bieber walks in the room ... "Your focus isn't where it should be."

"If [Bieber] had been a part of the team from the beginning, fine ... but a one-timer, no."

You Don't Own the Bible!

110414_big_boo_launch"Orange Is the New Black" star Lea DeLaria went off the rails on the train in NYC Tuesday morning ... verbally attacking a Bible-thumper who was holding commuters hostage to his rants.

DeLaria (aka Big Boo) was on the train when the proselytizer began preaching at ear-piercing levels. The actress stood up in her "Bad Jew" T and schooled the guy, distracting commuters intently Instagraming, Twittering and Candy Crushing.

But the preacher guy fought back ... eventually referencing Sodom and Gomorrah and "the sin of homosexuality." At that point Lea, who is openly gay, throws her hands up and just loses it on the guy.

110414_big_boo_pt2_launchAs for where DeLaria was headed ... she apparently took the train to "Sesame Street."

EXCLUSIVE

103014_ghost_adventures_launch A girl's family claims she became possessed by demons after visiting a house owned by "Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans ... and she had to be exorcised.

The house has had documented incidents of paranormal activity. As we first reported ... a family fled the home after claiming they were terrorized by demons.

Zak convinced different former residents to return to the home for a new documentary ... and as soon as they began filming, demonic activity surfaced. The mother claimed someone kicked her when no one was around. And there were other incidents as well.

A few days later, the daughter began having violent outbursts ... threatening to hurt herself and others. Zak says the girl's family witnessed her speaking in tongues ... exhibiting signs of demonic possession.

Zak claims they brought the girl to a Catholic priest, who performed an exorcism. He recorded the ritual on video.  Zak says the girl is now back to her old self.

The documentary was put on ice while everyone dealt with the daughter, and now Zak says he'll return to the house in December ... to finish the film.

Notre Dame WR

No Punishment

For Dating Porn Star

10/28/2014 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1028-justin-brent-instagram-01
Notre Dame may not want its players banging before marriage, but it will NOT suspend Justin Brent for "dating" porn star Lisa Ann ... TMZ Sports has learned.

A Notre Dame football spokesman says the freshman wide receiver will escape any punishment -- and will suit up for the Navy game this weekend. He added Coach Brian Kelly met with Brent when he got back to campus ... and it's no longer an issue.

It may sound strange, but sources connected with the university tell us Brent did nothing wrong. The official university stance is that students "may be subject" to punishment if they have premarital sex ... but there's no public proof Brent and the legendary "Nailin' Palin" star banged.

We're told administrators did question Brent about a leaked photo (rated PG) of him in bed with LA ... but since he had nothing to do with it getting out, there's no issue. ND officials merely warned Brent to be careful because he represents the university -- a.k.a. be smart about what you post on social media.

We're also told Ray and Janay are still committed to the marriage -- and have vowed to maintain their family and rebuild their lives together.
