Mischa Barton I Couldn't Escape Emotional Abuse From Sex Tape Partner

3/30/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mischa Barton is ripping the ex-bf behind the sex tape that's being shopped around, and says he's more interested in destroying her emotionally than financially.

Mischa went on 'Dr. Phil' and revealed the exact moment she found out about the tape. As she's said ... the guy responsible is someone she used to love, but she told Phil she desperately tried to distance herself from him after finding out about the secret recording. It didn't work.

The episode airs Monday, and Mischa will also talk about that bizarre incident in her backyard, where she claimed she was slipped "a cocktail of drugs."

'Dance Moms' Star I Followed Abby Out ... Dances Got Way Too Sexy

3/30/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ashlee Allen followed Abby Lee Miller's lead and left "Dance Moms"  -- but for a totally different reason ... she wasn't down with the show trying to sex things up with the kids.

We spoke to the now-former dance mom, and she told us -- first and foremost -- the Lifetime show will never be the same without Abby at the helm. 

Then she lays it on us ... "Dance Moms" producers have apparently been pushing for sexier dance routines, which Ashlee says was too much for her and her teen daughter, Brynn

Abby didn't mention anything about this specifically in her public bow out this week. Instead, she cited "being manipulated, disrespected, and used - day in and day out" by male showrunners.

There's footage of the dance number that set Ashlee off ... and it's pretty racy for 14, 15 and 16-year-olds. We've reached out to "Dance Moms" brass ... so far, no word back.

Adult Swim Sued Thou Hath Jacked My 'Black Jesus'

3/29/2017 6:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329_black_jesus_cartoon_network"Black Jesus" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim is an impostor of the original black Jesus -- the one created by an author in 1999 (not the Bethlehem one) ... according to a new suit.

New York author Saint Solomon says "Black Jesus" -- the live action comedy on TV -- picks up where his short story titled "Thank You, Jesus" left off. He says the TV character is just like the protagonist in his story -- black, homeless, and named Jesus.

In his lawsuit, Solomon says his story ends with his Jesus being kicked out of the house to go live on the streets, and he believes episode 1 of "Black Jesus" picks up the tale 15 years later.

According to the docs ... there are other similarities, like the fact TV Black Jesus has a friend who is always trying to get rich quick, just like in the short story. And both Black Jesuses dress the same, curse a lot and drink booze.

Can we get an Amen?

Solomon's suing Adult Swim for ripping off his idea ... and wants more than $75 million to make it right.

3/29/2017 10:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-tmzTomi Lahren has millions on the line in her negotiations to exit TheBlaze ... as in Facebook followers.

Sources familiar with the negotiations between Tomi and Blaze brass tell us she's adamant about keeping her 4.2 million FB fans, but the company has other ideas.

Fact is ... TheBlaze owns her Facebook page ... and honchos have flexed their muscles by cutting off access to Tomi and her team.

There hasn't been a single post since Tomi and Glenn Beck butted heads over her announcing on "The View" she was pro-choice.

We're told Tomi believes she's more marketable if she brings her Facebook followers to her next gig. As we reported, she has 6 months left on her contract and she's currently negotiating a severance package which includes a payout and a possible time out where she can't work anywhere else.

We're told both sides are talking and they will probably reach some resolution by the end of the week. The Facebook followers may get horse traded as part of the package.

Tyra Sanchez Drag Queens Aren't 'AGT' Playthings ... I Was Mocked!

3/29/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former "RuPaul's Drag Race" champ Tyra Sanchez claims "America's Got Talent" pulled a cruel bait and switch, trying to make him something he's not ... Tyra Banks.

Sanchez -- real name James Ross -- tells us 'AGT' producers reached out to him about doing a funny bit with their new host. He says he was into it, but believed he'd appear as HIS character ... Tyra Sanchez. Somewhere along the way he says the deal changed, and they wanted him to be a contestant ... as a Banks impersonator.

He's convinced they were setting him up to be the butt of the joke, but he didn't fall for it ... like many before him have. Ross wants his fellow queens to rise up and refuse to do the show or even watch it.

We reached out to 'AGT' ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Will Smith and the rest of the 'Fresh Prince' cast didn't just reunite to chat about old times, they did it to raise big money for charity ... TMZ has learned.

Karyn Parsons, aka 'Hilary,' tells us the luncheon -- with Tatiana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, Will, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell -- went down Monday at Nobu in Malibu. Karyn says her castmates broke bread with a family from England that won a charity auction.

She says the money will support her organization, Sweet Blackberry, ... which makes educational animated shorts about African-American history. Karyn wouldn't say how much the Brits dropped for the all-star meal, but let's face it any meal at Nobu -- WITH Will Smith -- can't come cheap. 

She added it was bittersweet because of the absence of James Avery, who died in 2013.

Pretty cool of the whole gang to donate their time.

Abby Lee Miller Bows Out Of 'Dance Moms'

3/27/2017 12:36 PM PDT
Breaking News

0327-abby-lee-miller-TMZ-02"Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller is quitting the show because she says she's tired of being manipulated by male producers who don't know jack about dance.

Abby's been schooling kids in dance -- in her own unique way -- for 7 seasons, but posted her resignation in the wee hours of Monday morning. She blasted producers over creative differences ... saying she's continuously asked for credit on "all the ideas, award winning routines and costumes" but to no avail.

She insists she has no problem teaching the kids, but rather with "being manipulated, disrespected and used, day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives and treat women like dirt."

It's unclear if she's quitting teaching altogether or just the reality show. We're waiting to hear back from her camp, and Lifetime has "no comment."

3/27/2017 11:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-TMZ-01Tomi Lahren and TheBlaze are finished with each other, and they're now deep in negotiations to settle up.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, after Glenn Beck suspended Tomi over her comment on "The View" -- that she was pro-choice -- Tomi went to honchos at TheBlaze and said she wanted out.

There's clearly bad blood. Sources over at TheBlaze say Tomi's getting trashed ... "She's too crazy for us." On her side there's talk about what's behind this -- jealousy and that she's clearly the breakout star.

We're told she has 6 months left on her contract and TheBlaze was willing to pay her out, but that would mean Tomi couldn't work until October. We're told both sides are negotiating her exit and she will get less than 6 months of remaining salary but she'll be able to take another job.

We're told the settlement will be struck sometime this week.

As for where Tomi will go ... probably somewhere -- she has almost 4 1/2 million Facebook followers.
