'Rock of Love' Star Lacey Sculls Sued for Biting Off Part of Man's Ear ... But She Calls BS

12/9/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Rock of Love' star, Lacey Sculls, got an earful during a road rage incident, as in she allegedly chewed some guy's ear ... and now, as you might expect, he's suing the hell out of her.

Lacey, who tried and failed to lure Bret Michaels on his mid-2000s reality show, is being sued by Jorge Magana ... who claims Lacey and her hubby, Jonny, beat him to a pulp back in January.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Jorge says he was sitting in his car when Jonny charged at him, pulled him outta the car and repeatedly punched and bit him. During the skirmish, he claims Lacey jumped on him, scratched his face and bit off a portion of his ear. 

Cops investigated the incident ... leading to Lacey and Jonny's arrests on multiple felony charges, including battery with serious bodily injury and assault. Jorge's suit offers no explanation for the altercation.

Lacey and Jonny are countersuing, however, and tell a much different version. They say Jorge repeatedly brake-checked them, trying to trigger a collision. Once both parties stopped, they claim Jorge got out of the car and sucker punched Jonny as he sat in their car ... and then Jonny sped off.

According to the suit, Jorge chased them and attacked Jonny a 2nd time ... punching him in the face and head before knocking him down and kicking him. Jonny claims he never threw a punch.  

'Surviving R. Kelly' Cops Track Down Shooting Threat ... It's a Chicago Number

12/8/2018 8:54 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The investigation into who threatened to shoot up an NYC screening of "Surviving R. Kelly" -- the documentary about his alleged sexual abuse of women -- has led cops to someone in R. Kelly's hometown.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... NYPD's person of interest is a man with Chicago's 773 area code. We're told cops aren't ready to release the man's name yet, and it's unclear if he has any direct connection to Kelly.

'Surviving' was screened Tuesday night at NeueHouse in NYC, but 20 minutes into it someone made a phone threat. The male caller said someone was in the audience with a gun and would open fire if the screening continued. The venue was immediately evacuated.

R. Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, told Variety she thought the singer was connected to the threats. Andrea was at NeueHouse and she and several other accusers were scheduled to hold a Q&A session immediately following the screening.

The docuseries premieres in January on Lifetime.

We reached out R. Kelly and NYPD for comment ... both declined.

Monica says anyone shocked to learn she's a mortician should understand one thing ... she's more than just a Grammy-winning singer.

We got Monica at LAX on Monday and had to talk to her about recently revealing she's a legit mortician. She revealed her side hustle's actually something she's been doing for YEARS. It's true ... she's been working at her uncle Gus Thornhill's funeral home since 2013.

She tells us her uncle's been at it for nearly 50 years and she grew up around the occupation. So, it's no surprise when you hear the passion in her voice about being a mortician. She tells us why it's a calling and why it's important to get out of your zone.

YouPorn Tit for Tat, Starbucks!!! We're Strictly Dunkin' Now

11/29/2018 11:10 AM PST
Exclusive Details

YouPorn is now all about the D -- as in, Dunkin' -- because it's getting revenge on Starbucks for blocking Internet porn in its stores ... TMZ has learned. 

Reps for YouPorn tell TMZ ... the porn giant is now strictly pushing Dunkin' coffee on its workforce. The company's VP sent a memo to employees announcing a ban on all Starbucks products from YouPorn offices effective New Year's Day. 

Point is ... 2 can play this game.

Starbucks just announced it's blocking customers from watching XXX material while on their free WiFi, this after mounting pressure from the Internet safety group, Enough is Enough. YouPorn is simply responding in kind with a blockade of its own.

Yes, it's revenge porn ... but this one's legal.

Major League Eating We Wanna Eat That 2,800 Pound Steer ... in the Name of Sports!!

11/29/2018 9:34 AM PST

You know that big ass steer in Australia that went viral for being the biggest freakin' thing you've ever seen?

Major League Eating -- the competitive eating org that brought you food-guzzling superstars like Joey Chestnut, Matt Stonie and Takeru Kobayashi -- wants to eat him. 

"Knickers" has become a viral sensation after reports pegged his height and weight at 6'4" and 2,800 pounds. He's a beast. 

The MLE says it believes the animal could be too large to handle at a normal meat processing facility ... so they'd like to help out -- but butchering him and serving him themselves at an outdoor BBQ. 

"Knickers is an extraordinary Holstein and we hope to pay honor by eating him in historic fashion," MLE Chair George Shea said.

"As a point of clarification, we would not consume the stomach because none of our eaters care for tripe."

So ... how many of the MLE's best eaters would it take to finish off good ole, Knickers??

The org estimates it'll take 20(!!!!) of it's best food fighters -- plus donut eating world champion Badlands Booker

Holy cow. (sorry, had to)

11/28/2018 12:10 PM PST

Here's something you don't see every day ... 2 movie stars riding bare-ass nekkid on a scooter -- but when ya do, it sure makes for a good day.

Sebastian Stan -- who plays Bucky Barnes, the Winter Soldier in the 'Avengers' flicks -- and Irish actress Denise Gough busted out their birthday suits Wednesday morning and hopped on the scooter to cruise through Athens. It's not a dare or a drunken escapade ... they're just filming for the upcoming movie, "Monday."

Check out the gallery ... Sebastian and Denise seem totally at ease riding in the nude. So, they're either great actors or kinda freaky. Or both. They're definitely not shy.

We don't know what the movie's plot is all about, but suddenly ... we LOVE Mondays.

'Storage Wars' $500 Storage Unit ... $7.5 Million Inside!!!

11/24/2018 7:37 AM PST

Jackpot! That's what one lucky man is saying after purchasing a storage unit from "Storage Wars" star Dan Dotson, that ended up with 7.5 million dollars in cash inside!!

The buyer says after he purchased the unit, he found a safe inside that took some time to crack open, but when they did, they found the ultimate return on investment.

When word reached the original owners of the storage unit that they just lost $7 mil, needless to say, they got their attorney to reach out immediately.

The 2 parties agreed to let the new owners keep a 1.2 million dollar reward for returning the lost loot, not a bad takeaway considering they only paid $500 for the unit.

So the real question is, what would you do if you found the 7 million? Dan Dotson explains that he would look to return it for one key reason, and it has a lot to do with who could potentially be looking for that money.

Breaking News

The man who went viral thanks to a mugshot that showed off his massive neck just a week ago has been arrested again ... and the dude is still flexing what made him famous.

Charles Dion McDowell was busted Wednesday in Lee County, Alabama for allegedly eluding law enforcement, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, improper lane usage and a 2nd-degree possession of marijuana charge.  

McDowell's first mugshot -- from an arrest in Florida last week -- blew up on social media after it was posted to Facebook. During that arrest, he was booked for eluding, possession of cocaine, meth and marijuana.

The pic spurred an influx of memes, puns and social media shares. 

Let's just hope McDowell's legal team is as strong as his traps. 

French Soccer Star Gets Freaky With Raw Turkey ... For Thanksgiving

11/21/2018 10:34 AM PST

Okay, so full disclosure here -- we don't get it. We're not really sure why a French Soccer star just made love to a chicken on his Instagram, but he did ... and we're about to show it to you.

The guy's name is Patrice Evra, and he's an international soccer superstar, who used to play with Manchester United, and now plays with West Ham United F.C.

Not long ago Evra took to his IG and, in full view of his over 5 million followers, made love to raw turkey. He kissed the turkey, he sucked the turkey, he even got a little rough with the turkey, smacking it.

Patrice is pretty infamous for posting bizarre stuff, but none have inspired anything close to the collective WTF that the entire internet is experiencing right now.

BTW -- Evra came back and admitted he's not aware of things like oh, SALMONELLA which, if he isn't lucky, he'll be intimately acquainted with soon.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Shania Twain Yes, I Peed Myself ... But Only One Time!!!

11/21/2018 10:23 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Shania Twain is setting her piss record straight ... telling us she only sprung a leak once mid-concert.

We got the country queen Tuesday night in WeHo at Craig's, and she wanted to clear a few things up about her penchant for pissing during performances. 

Check out the clip ... Shania tells us she's taken a No. 1 onstage, but only one time -- when she was 16.

If you're wondering where all the potty talk came from ... Shania was on Andy Cohen's Bravo show last week, and the way the convo went down it sounded like she was a serial pisser.

Shania says her losing it was the result of stage fright ... when she was only 16 in front of a big audience. She wants to get the word out stat that she's outgrown the spontaneous pee thing. 

Hey, when ya gotta go, ya gotta go.

J.K. Rowling Before Hogwarts, I Wanted in at Leith Buy My App for $250k!!!

11/20/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

J.K. Rowling was putting pen to paper for teaching gigs before 'Harry Potter' ever took off, and now one of her employment bids can be yours ... for the price of a modest home.

An application Rowling filled out in 1996 to teach in Scotland is currently for sale for $250,000. We didn't screw up the number of zeroes, you read correctly ... $2-5-0-0-0-0. The original app is being sold through Moments in Time

The document -- part of a 12-page bundle -- is definitely a huge part of Rowling's story of success. She'd finished her first 'Potter' manuscript in 1995, but was still shopping it around to publishers before one of 'em finally bit in '97 ... and the rest, of course, is history.

Before that though, she had a brief stint teaching secondary languages to high schoolers at Leith Academy -- a result of her filing this application. It lists her employment and education history, as well as experience which she considered relevant.

It's interesting ... ya gotta wonder if her time at Leith (and the application process to get in) dictated anything she went on to write about Hogwarts in the books. 

The wizard's in the details for this one, we suppose.

Here's the grossest thing you'll see all day ... NY Giants WR Sterling Shepard straight-up pulled the nail off his big toe -- and documented it all on video.

So, Shepard reached down ... grabbed the nail on his left foot ... plucked it straight off -- AND DIDN'T EVEN FLINCH!!!

"Aw, yeah! It's time to come off! Yessir!"

Unclear when Shepard suffered the toe catastrophe that caused the gruesome scene ... but we're all hopeful he puts the camera down next time it happens.
