This is nuts -- Wesley Warren (the man famous for his 132-pound scrotum) has passed away from a non-scrotum health issue.
According to reports, Warren passed away Friday at University Medical Center after suffering two heart attacks in recent weeks.
Warren's friend told the Vegas Review-Journal, Warren's been hospitalized for the last 5-and-a-half weeks for infections stemming from his diabetes, and suffered the heart attacks while in the hospital.
Prior to his surgery last summer to remove the exercise ball-sized growth, Warren used to wear hooded sweatshirts as pants, using the hood as a makeshift scrotum sling.
Warren had suffered from an extreme case of scrotal lymphedema, which causes the scrotum to swell with watery fluid. He appeared on the Howard Stern Show as well as Comedy Central.
Warren was 49.

'DWTS' Has Stripped Me Of My Privacy
3/14/2014 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Cody Simpson has lost his right of privacy while doing "Dancing With the Stars." He cannot remove his mic while he's on the phone, while he's talking business, while he reveals his most inner thoughts. The only exception -- taking a dump.
The contract Cody signed makes the NSA look like child's play. We got a copy because Cody's only 17 and the doc has to be filed with the court.
Cody agrees to wear a mic during rehearsal's and training, with only a bathroom break out.
The Australian singer gets a guaranteed $125K ... which goes up the longer he stays on the show. It caps out at $50K per week if he's in the finals.
And, "DWTS" cleverly figured out a way to block Jimmy Fallon from hijacking ABC stars. Cody specifically agreed to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Good Morning America," and "The View."
Here's how onerous the deal is ... "DWTS" has final cut on Cody's hairstyle.
4 Baby Mamas
Pop Out Reality Show
3/14/2014 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie's 4 baby mamas have another bun in the oven -- a reality show.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Boosie's babes -- Walnita, Tracey, Trivia, and Gerlissa -- have been putting together a pilot episode over the last few months while the rapper's been locked behind bars. Together, they've mothered Boosie's 7 children (aged 4-11).
FYI, Walnita's the baby mama who was arrested back in 2010 for trying to smuggle Boosie drugs in jail.
We're told the reality show will focus on the ladies' unusual friendships that formed as the result of their ... peculiar circumstances. It's unclear if Boosie -- née Torrence Hatch -- will also be participating now that he's free.
According to sources, the producers behind the show are currently shopping it to several networks -- including Oxygen, WE, and Fuse -- but so far, no deal is in place.

Lawyer Fires Back
I Wasn't Promoting Me, I Was Promoting You!
3/13/2014 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The personal injury lawyer who just got his ass sued by Judge Judy insists Judy's got her robe in a bunch for no reason -- telling TMZ, he wasn't using her image to promote himself ... he was using it to promote HER.
As we reported, Judy sued attorney John Haymond claiming he stole clips from her show to use in a commercial to promote his law firm -- but Haymond says that's just not the case.
He tells us, the commercial in question is actually for her OWN SHOW.
According to Haymond, the local ABC affiliate in New Haven, CT and NBC affiliate in Springfield recently asked Haymond -- a well-known personal injury lawyer in the area -- and his daughters to appear in the Judge Judy promo ... and he obliged.
Haymond says the promotions actually ran on the station several years ago, but recently stopped, and he's surprised the station isn't owning up. According to Haymond, "If the local affiliates would just release these Judge Judy Show promotions, everyone would see this is much ado about nothing."
What Haymond isn't addressing -- apparently Judy doesn't think he has the right to take old commercials targeted for her show and then slap them on his website long after the fact.

Justin Bieber has cut his final ties with the city of Los Angeles ... because TMZ has learned he's sold the last piece of property he owns in the area ... leaving him wide open for a permanent move to the ATL.
As TMZ first reported, Bieber sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian for a cool $7.2 million ... making a little over a million on the sale.
But according to our sources, Bieber also owned the 1.7-acre plot of land next door ... until now. We're told Bieber just sold that for $2.775 million (he bought it for $2.35 mil in 2012) and the deal closes in 30 days.
As for the buyer, our sources say it's nobody famous, but he's about to inherit a slew of famous neighbors.
We're told Bieber had been looking for another home in the Los Angeles, but he's since called off the search.

I'm NOT a Bad Guy
Just Greedy As Hell
3/13/2014 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
11-game "Jeopardy" champ Arthur Chu -- widely criticized for his cocky attitude and unorthodox playing style -- insists he's not such a bad guy in real life ... minus his unquenchable thirst for money.
Chu was out in NYC early Thursday -- a day after his "Jeopardy" reign came to an end -- and he told us, fans of the game show got the wrong impression of him ... just because he was an ambitious (and extremely successful) player.
Chu -- who won nearly $300,000 on the show -- said, "I don't think I'm a bad guy for trying to win money on Jeopardy. I might be a bad guy for other reasons, but that's for other people to decide."
As for what he plans to do with his massive check -- watch the video.

Joanna Krupa says the only reason the Dalai Lama didn't change her life is because -- despite anything you've seen her do and say -- she's "All about Jesus."
JK was leaving Sur restaurant last night when she tried to explain why she dissed Dalai last month ... by professing her love for JC, but made a major slip up in the process.
Joanna attempts to say she can't wait to see the new movie, "Son of God" -- but you gotta hear how it comes out of her mouth.

Divorce Didn't Ruin Me ...
I'm Dating a Rich African Dictator's Son
3/13/2014 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porsha Williams isn't wanting for cash after her ex-husband screwed her over in their divorce -- sources tell TMZ, she's now knocking boots with the exorbitantly wealthy son of an African dictator ... notorious for human rights violations.
According to sources, Porsha has been seeing 42-year-old Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea ... since 1979.
Mbasogo (the father) is known as one of Africa's most brutal and corrupt rulers -- not only for having his predecessor executed and political opponents tortured, but for pillaging his own country's oil wealth ... while its people live in abject poverty.
And his son is reaping the benefits -- living like a king in Malibu and all around the world.
We're told Mangue (the son) has been showering Porsha with expensive gifts for the last month -- Louboutin shoes, Chanel ... even a Rolls Royce -- and Porsha has been posting photos of the gifts on Instagram.
Sources say the romance is pretty new ... but it's escalating fast -- we're told Mangue is currently looking to buy Porsha a multimillion-dollar house in ATL.
We reached out to Porsha's conscience for comment -- so far, no word back.
Sex Tape to Go to Highest Bidder
But There's a Catch
3/13/2014 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The person who has a copy of the Johnny Carson sex tape now wants to sell it ... but potential buyers have to blindly cough up a fortune just for the chance to see it.
The attorney repping the guy who has the tape tells TMZ ... his client will hold viewing parties for people interested in buying the 70's home video showing long-dong Carson banging one of his wives.
Now get this -- in order to even see the tape ... prospective buyers must make a blind bid. The seller is not setting a price. He'll just review what's on the table.
And it gets even crazier. To qualify to see the tape, prospective buyers must show they're serious by depositing their bids into an escrow account. And, like Carson's schlong, only huge offerings will make the cut.
After the screening, prospective buyers will be invited to up the ante.
And one more string attached. The winning bidder must sign a document saying it cannot be sold commercially -- it's solely for a private collection. And, if the buyer violates that ... he or she will get socked with a huge financial penalty.
Carson's junk better be at least 11 for all this.
