Exclusive Video

Soulja Boy insists his "I'm going to die soon" Snapchat message was not about committing suicide -- it's just that he's lived a full, kick-ass life already ... at 25. 

SB was on TMZ Live Friday to clear the air about the troubling social media post ... which caused a a lot of panic among his fans. Soulja thinks people misunderstood him, even though his comment was pretty direct.

Check out his explanation ... sounds like he's struggling with the downside of success and fame. 


Jimmy Iovine's Ex-Wife Creepy Fan Thinks He's My Son ... Wants a Loan Too!!

10/15/2015 4:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1015_Vicki-Iovine_jimmy_iovine_gettyMusic mogul Jimmy Iovine and ex-wife Vicki got hit up for $50 grand from their son ... or at least an obsessed fan who seems to think he's their son.

According to docs, Devante Nevels flooded Vicki's email, cell phone and social media with annoying messages. One in particular ... "Mom can you call me Im going to jail tomorrow for 15 days, Hopefully I get out Idk."

Nevels also attempted to dip into the Iovine family fortune by asking for $50,000 ... but at least it was a loan. We're sure Nevels -- whose Facebook alias is Jameslong Changelong -- is totally good for it.

Vicki reported Nevels to the LAPD ... which eventually got a search warrant for Nevels' Twitter and Facebook accounts. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Nevels was not arrested though, because the messages didn't meet the criminal criteria for harassment. Translation: At this point, he's annoying as hell, but not dangerous.

In fact, we're told Nevels still contacts the family from time to time. 

Jason Biggs My Wife Is Nuts For Junk-Revealing Selfie

10/12/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-jason-biggs-on-toilet-INSTAGRAM-01update_graphic_red_bar2:25 PM PT -- Jenny deleted the post from her Instagram. Guess it wasn't intentional, after all.update_grey_gray_barJason Biggs and his wife got photobombed ... by deez. Deez who, you say?

Deez nuts!!

Yes, Jason's family jewels were exposed when Jenny Mollen cleverly snapped a selfie of herself in the mirror -- and Jason squatting on a toilet.

Seems clear they planned out the shot for laughs ... Jenny captioned the pic, "Is this a cute sweater?" What's unclear is if the "American Pie" star's sack reveal was intentional.

For some reason these lyrics come to mind -- "Swing low, sweet chariot ... "

Farrah Abraham Fired For Being Too Porny

10/7/2015 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-farrah-abraham-tmz-01No one wants a piece of Farrah Abraham and the proof is in the sales of her DNA ... at least according to a rep for a company that just fired her.  

Celebrity Gene put Farrah's liquified DNA inside a necklace and put it on the market four months ago with part of the proceeds going to charity, but claims NOT ONE PERSON purchased the stuff.

We obtained the scathing letter CG's publicity company, ZTPR, fired off severing ties with the "Backdoor Teen Mom." It says Farrah "would much rather talk about your female body parts in order to generate more profits for yourself" rather than charity.

Translation: Farrah promotes the hell out of sex toys (molded from her body parts), but does nothing to promote the DNA necklace. 

Por ejemplo ... the PR co. couldn't resist referencing this classic from Farrah: "Another one of my absolute favorites is my full on vibrating p***y and ass molded from my very own body." Classy.

Moving forward, CG says it's cutting all ties with Farrah. Instead, ALL future profits will go to the charity she chose, Operation Underground Railroad.

Now if only someone would buy one of these things.


'American Horror Story: Hotel' Real Life Hotel Swarmed By Fans

10/7/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-hotel-cecil-getty-01"American Horror Story: Hotel" has drawn hordes of fans to the real hotel on which the show is based.

'AHS' die-hards are flocking to Stay on Main hotel in downtown L.A. ... the site of a grisly death in 2013 when it was called the Cecil Hotel.

Elisa Lam was found dead in the hotel's water tank after the hotel received complaints the water tasted funny. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning, but after LAPD released elevator video of Elisa's erratic behavior, stories began surfacing she was possessed and the hotel was haunted.

We're told the barrage of 'AHS' promos featuring Lady Gaga have sent fans into a frenzy ... people are lining up to stay in Elisa's room and poke around the water tank. As for the room, they're out of luck ... it's off limits.

Ryan Murphy has said his inspiration for the new season of 'AHS' -- premiering Wednesday night -- is Lam's story.

We're told security is on alert for people daring to conduct paranormal investigations.

10/6/2015 5:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-charlize-theron-01Charlize Theron's alleged stalker can sleep easy on a bed of roses tonight ... the District Attorney has declined to charge him.

We're told the decision on Tuesday to drop charges was made based on a lack of evidence Stanislav Sonseadec intended to place Charlize in any danger.

According to the D.A's rejection docs,Theron's assistant asked Sonseadec several times to leave the property before calling the cops.  But law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sonseadec is Russian and there may have been a language barrier that made it hard for him to understand he was unwelcome.

TMZ broke the story ... cops were called to the actresses' house Sunday after a man with flowers for her refused to leave.

She loves me ... she loves me not.

10/3/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-church-of-bacon-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Penn Jillette might just have the perfect buyers for his Las Vegas mansion and the new residents are all high ... in cholesterol.

The United Church of Bacon, a group of more than 12,000 religious skeptics and atheists has its collective eyes set on the 7,500 square foot pad. We're told they'll use the place for community meetings, weddings and for plain old, "having fun."

As for the home, which Jillette nicknamed "The Slammer," it sits on 8.5 acres and features a lap pool, catwalks connecting different wings of the house and even a fire pole from one level to the floor. 

The church's central tenet is that bacon is real ... it's proven to exist. The church's money better be real too ... the home is listed at more than $2 million.

1002-keira-knightly-instagram-01Here's how Keira Knightley's Broadway debut went -- the curtain came up, and then the cops came down on a fan who lost it ... screaming at her and throwing stuff onto the stage.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops detained the man outside Studio 54, where Keira is starring in "Therese Raquin." The man was seated in the mezzanine of the theater and just a few minutes into the play, he started shouting at Keira.

He demanded she reply to him, yelling ... "Five seconds is too long to wait for a response!" When ushers ran to remove him, the man threw a bouquet of flowers down onto the stage.

Chipotle Customer They Screwed Me ... With a Side of Hardware

10/1/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0929-chipotle-screw-tmz-01Chipotle did NOT nail the order of one customer, who says she found a screw buried in her burrito bowl ... and almost busted a tooth.

We're told the woman visited the Chipotle location at The Grove in LA Monday night. She ordered her usual -- a chicken bowl with brown rice, salsa, guacamole and lettuce ... to go.  

She says she bit into something that "felt like a rock" and when she spit everything out, she found the screw. She immediately called the restaurant, and claims she was told there was nothing they could do about it.

So, she called Chipotle's corporate office and finally got some satisfaction -- 20 free meals. She doesn't know if that includes chips and guac, but says she'll be pissed if it doesn't. 

A Chipotle rep described the situation this way, "She has been taken care of. All is well."

Don't hold the chips & guac.
