Breaking News

0915-brenden-dassey-netflix-01Brendan Dassey's in no way a flight risk and should be let out of prison while his appeal is pending ... at least that's the argument his lawyers are making to get him out now.

You'll recall a federal judge ordered the release of Dassey back in August ... but the Wisconsin Attorney General appealed that decision.

Lawyers say that's fine and dandy ... but in the meantime, while that process plays out, Dassey should be released. According to docs ... Dassey's lawyers argue he poses no danger to the public, and has been a model prisoner who spends his time reading, watching TV and recently took up crochet. They say he's attempting a blanket.

Dassey -- convicted for helping Steven Avery in a murder chronicled on "Making a Murderer" -- was ordered released from prison after his constitutional rights were violated.

50 Cent Your Superhero's an Impostor ... We'll Stop Him in Court!

9/14/2016 7:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0913-50-cent-tmz-0250 Cent's new superhero series might be dead before it even takes flight -- Starz is being threatened with a lawsuit if they don't shut down the production.

JourStarr Publications fired off a legal letter, obtained by TMZ, saying the premise of Fiddy's upcoming show "Tomorrow, Today" is a rip-off of the book, "Othello Greene: The Story Begins."

50 Cent and premium cable channel Starz announced last month they were doing the show -- about a veteran who becomes an evil prison doctor's experiment -- and said it was based on a screenplay 50 wrote. The book's publisher says that's BS, and Anthony Baltimore is actually the author.

The publisher says it's giving Starz 10 days to back down or else ... it can expect a super-lawyer battle. update_graphic_red_bar8:30 AM PT -- 50 Cent's attorney tells us there's no connection whatsoever between "Tomorrow, Today" and 'Othello Greene' ... adding, "Mr. Jackson has neither met the author, heard of nor read this book."

It's worth noting, the book is about an elite special ops soldier battling a terrorist out for world domination. 50's attorney says the publisher's threat is merely a publicity stunt.

Ryan Lochte Protesters We Did It For America ... But 'DWTS' Guards Did Some Damage

9/13/2016 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The protesters who rushed Ryan Lochte on "Dancing with the Stars" wanted to get revenge for the swimmer embarrassing Americans at the Olympics ... and they say they'd do it again.

59-year-old Sam Sotoodeh and 25-year-old Barzeen Soroudi -- who are related -- explained their antics when they got out of jail Tuesday ... still sporting their "No Lochte" shirts. Barzeen says he was in Rio for the games, and Lochtegate made him a target while he was down there. 

Even though he put himself in the line of fire with the protest ... Sotoodeh has a major issue with the way security guards took him down on the dance floor. Watch, everything about his reaction reeks of lawsuit.

Bill Clinton Hillary's Fainted 'Frequently' ... CBS Edits Remark

9/13/2016 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar1:50 PM PT -- CBS tells us the Evening News clip was "edited purely for time while on deadline for the live broadcast."update_grey_gray_barHillary Clinton has "frequently" fainted due to dehydration, according to Bill Clinton ... but for some reason CBS removed that comment from its initial airing of the interview.

Charlie Rose sat down with the ex-Prez to discuss the candidate's health, and Bill tackled the question head-on. CBS released quotes from the interview where Bill said, “... because frequently -- well not frequently, rarely -- but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.” 

The "frequently" part was edited out of Monday's evening news. What's interesting is ... it was left in when a longer version aired Tuesday on "CBS This Morning."

It's only 3 seconds ... so, seems odd it would have been removed for time purposes.

Colin Kaepernick Gets 'South Park'd' With 'Cops Are Pigs' Anthem

9/13/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest has made it to "South Park" -- where the guys spoofed the controversy with a "Cops Are Pigs" version of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

In a 30 second teaser for Wednesday's show, a bunch of the characters are singing the Anthem at a sporting event with the following lyrics ...  

"Colin Kaepernick is brave ... cops are pigs, cops are pigs

Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops 

Oh no, I just said 'Cops are pigs' ... who's gonna help me get my stuff?

Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick, he's not even any good

Oh I just got my stuff back, cops are pigs again, cops are pigs

Colin Kaepernick's a good backup ..."

This should be good.  

Brandi Glanville Something's Fishy With Her Taxes Uncle Sam Says She Owes $112k

9/13/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822-Brandi-Glanville-tmzAdd Brandi Glanville's name to the growing list of 'Housewives' with tax problems because Uncle Sam says she's on the hook for $112k.

The ousted 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star has been hit with a federal tax lien. The feds say she owes $29,396.35 from 2013, and $82,448.38 from 2014.

The timing is no coincidence. Brandi was promoted to a main cast member during season 3, the majority of which aired in 2013.

On the bright side ... it doesn't look like Brandi's as far in the hole as NeNe Leakes, who reportedly owes the IRS $824k, or Teresa and Joe Giudice, who are paying off a $261k tab to the state of NJ.


CM Punk Mocked By WWE ... Lampooned at 'Backlash'

CM Punk's getting no love from the WWE -- with superstars Dolph Ziggler and The Miz mocking his UFC debut during Sunday night's "Backlash" PPV event. 

The Miz played the role of Punk ... throwing a wild punch while Ziggler, playing Mickey Gall, took him down to the ground and proceeded to deliver a pounding like the one at UFC 203. 

So far, no word from Punk. 

'Black-ish' Creator Sued Show Was My Idea Too ... Kenya Barris Cut Me Out

9/9/2016 4:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909_blackish_abcThe hugely successful creator of "Black-ish" forgot someone on his way to the top ... namely the guy who says the show is based on his life.

Kenya Barris is the credited creator of the huge ABC hit, starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, and Bryan Barber says he and Kenya go way back to their college days in 1996.

In a lawsuit Barber just filed -- obtained by TMZ -- he says he and Kenya both became writers and both had agents at William Morris. He says they formed a partnership in 2006, and came up with a script focusing on the "black experience" ... through the eyes of a "successful, creative and affluent black man" working in the mostly white entertainment industry.

That's Anderson's character to a T, except he works at an ad agency.

In the the suit, Barber says the script was based on HIS life experiences, and he and Kenya agreed to exploit it for their benefit. Problem is ... he says they parted ways before 2014, when "Black-ish" debuted. 

Barber says "Black-ish" has tons of similarities to the OG show idea -- such as the lead character driving a luxury car, wearing high-end clothes, and marrying a bi-racial doctor named "Rainbow."

He's suing Barris and the show's production company for at least $1 million. Plus, he wants writer and creator credits which would net him even more dough. We've reached out to Kenya's rep ... no word back.
