Breaking News

0624_tony-robbins_hot-coals_instagramtmzTony Robbins' motivational seminar went haywire in Dallas when more than 30 people who walked on hot coals had to get treated for burns.

According to reports ... 5 people were hospitalized Thursday night, while the rest were treated on-site for burns to their feet and lower legs. Tony had encouraged attendees to walk the coals in order to conquer their fears. It's a common thing at Robbins' events.

Tony's people tell TMZ ... 7,000 guests walked across the coals and only five "requested any examination beyond what was readily available on site."

At least one attendee blamed the burns on a lack of focus -- some people were reportedly taking selfies. This also happened at a 2012 event in San Jose.

Porn Star Christy Mack Creates Domestic Violence Emojis ... Black Eyes, Bruises

6/23/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0622-christy-mack-emoji-twitter-tmz-01The former porn star who claims she was attacked by her MMA star ex-boyfriend has launched a new line of emojis using images based on the brutal photos of her injuries ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The woman behind the concept is Christy Mack -- who claims ex-UFC star War Machine beat the crap out of her in 2014 ... nearly killing her in the process. 

Mack says she was recently approached to develop an emoji app and wanted to use the platform to bring attention to victims of domestic violence ... so she created MackMoji. 

"The decision to include a few emojis with a black eye, bruising, and so on is a way of bringing attention through shock value," Mack says.

"I'm willing to risk some people using them in a negative way to get the point across."

"So many are afraid to speak out, often times because they’re scared their partner will see history of their cry for help. This simple emoticon could save a life. I want everyone to know they’re not alone."

MackMoji will be released Thursday with a portion of the proceeds going to the Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence foundation.

Exclusive Details

Cam'ron wants to be No. 1 when you go No. 2 ... courtesy of his latest venture -- the toilet paper biz!

The rapper tells TMZ he's already dropped $21K for a machine to manufacture the paper, and plans to buy 2 more. When he first announced the idea with DJ Superstar Jay & Gray Rizzy on their SiriusXM show, some people thought it was a joke ... but he's serious. 

How serious? Cam says, "When it's time to take a s***, you don't want no paper cuts in your ass. It's a real problem." He's promising AT LEAST 2 ply comfort.

Cam'ron's brand, Dipset U.S.A., already hawks shower curtains, towels, various toiletries and even Ebola masks. That new nickname ... "Bed Bath and Killa" ... really fits.

Breaking News

0608-richard-simmons-cover-ne-01Richard Simmons is blasting a news report claiming the fitness guru is transitioning into a woman.

Simmons' rep called the story in the National Enquirer "absolute madness and not true."

The Enquirer claims Simmons has received breast implants and hormone treatments over the last 2 years and is becoming a woman. The report claims he's now "a softly spoken woman named Fiona."

Simmons went into virtual seclusion almost 3 years ago, shutting out friends and family. He claimed he wanted a break from the spotlight and was struggling with a bum knee.


TMZ broke the story ... Richard was hospitalized Friday night and stayed at Cedars in L.A. until Monday.

We got this pic of him sporting a beard in the backseat.


Michael Lohan Puts a Plug in It

6/8/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0607_micheal_lohan_hair-transplant_tmz_wmMicheal Lohan's head looked like a lunar nightmare after getting hair plugs, but in the end it actually took pretty well.

The post-surgery results are scary ... it looks like the Moon or Mars with a ring of hair.


Fact is ... the surgery was performed three weeks ago and it's growing in pretty nicely.


Michael didn't like the way he looked, and says two of his kids are about to tie the knot so he wanted to look good for the weddings.

This fine work of Dr. Mehdi Tahsini's ultimately set Lohan back $15k.

Ellen DeGeneres Show Sued Over Hilarious 'Titty' Joke

6/7/2016 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A Georgia woman has her t** in a ringer over a joke Ellen DeGeneres told on her show ... in fact she's so upset she's suing the talk show's producers for allegedly besmirching her good name.

In a segment called "What's Wrong with These Signs?" Ellen showed a real estate sign advertising a broker named Titi Pierce. Ellen assumed -- as we would -- it was pronounced "titty," but Titi says, "as grammar dictates," it's pronounced "Tee Tee."

Pierce says in her lawsuit ... no one has ever made such an error in her 35 years on planet Earth. As such, she's suing for defamation and invasion of privacy.

The realtor says, to add insult to injury ... she was on her way to a funeral when the segment aired and she got lots of mocking calls on her cellphone. She also says "The name-calling led to immediate ridicule and raucous laughter from the show's live and television audiences." 

Pierce says she's suffered emotional distress, embarrassment and anger.  

Execs from "Ellen" tell us, "We try to have fun every day and make people laugh and never intend to hurt anyone's feelings."

'Frozen' Look-Alike Elsa Gets Hypnotized

6/4/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Faith Carlson, the smoking hot model who bares a strong resemblance to Elsa from "Frozen", was put in a trance ... and it was so hot Olaf would melt.

Anna was at the MegaCon comic book convention in Orlando last week when she and her friend were hypnotized in front of an audience.

The hypnotist had Elsa stick out her tongue and ride a horse ... pretty tame by hypnotist standards.

We're guessing she just let it go.

NeNe Leakes Less Jokes, More Dudes On One Knee

6/3/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NeNe Leakes' recent stand-up gig was interrupted by a guy who decided to bust out a seriously raw marriage proposal ... for his gf, not NeNe.

The 'RHOA' star was performing at The Comedy House in Columbia, SC when the smooth audience member handed NeNe a note asking if he could borrow the stage to pop the question. 

Normally we think these are lame, but when the guy opens with, "Are we gonna still be f******?" -- it's worth a watch to see how it turns out.

0520-poop-producsts-makela-launch-5The hot chick who went viral for hiding a deuce in her purse while on a first date ... is about to make a real stink in the candy market.

Makela scored a deal with trendy candy confectioner IT'SUGAR -- known for dropping novelty sweets like Dingle Bearies ... aka chocolate covered gummy bears.

Makela's repping its new poop-inspired collection -- perfect since she's kinda found her niche since her horrific poop story went viral.

Other items include poop emoji pillows and Flinging Poo -- the clever handle for chocolate covered banana chips. There's also the "it's all s**** and giggles until someone giggles and s****" mug.

Makela would know.

James Gandolfini Rolex Theft a Total 'Sopranos' Deja Vu

5/17/2016 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-gandolfini-brancato-tmz-04There's an eerie 'Sopranos' coincidence surrounding James Gandolfini and the paramedic on trial for stealing his Rolex the day he died. 

The paramedic, whose trial started Monday in Rome, is Claudio Bevilacqua. That name might sound familiar to hardcore 'Sopranos' fans ... since Tony offed a Matt Bevilaqua in a 2001 episode of HBO's hit show. 

On the show, Bevilaqua robbed Tony's crew and demanded a watch from one of the guys. The boss eventually catches up with Bevilaqua and delivers some mob justice.

Adding to the creepy life imitating art thing -- Bevilaqua was played by Lillo Brancato, who eventually did time in real life for attempted burglary.

The whole thing is just weird. Check out the TV heist. 

Keanu Reeves Cops Investigate 'Matrix' Obsessed Fan

5/9/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505-keanu-reeves-matrix-wb-ec-01Keanu Reeves is once again being courted to join the resistance and save humanity ... only this time it's not Morpheus ... it's an obsessed fan who thinks "The Matrix" is real life.

According to legal docs ... the LAPD is looking for a guy who showed up at the actor's home last October and placed a FedEx envelope in his mailbox, offering up a cell phone number with this instruction: "I will call the cell provided tomorrow. We need to meet as I have already started building the new world. #masterbuilder."

Cops believe the guy has an obsession with Keanu's character, Neo, from "The Matrix" movies ... the cell phone reference is actually a nod to the first movie.

Keanu told cops he's afraid for his safety because the guy knows where he lives ... and he thinks the guy suffers from some type of mental disorder.

The LAPD is on the case. 

Steve-O I'm Down To Take On ISIS ... With My UFC Pal

5/7/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're about to reach a whole new level of Steve-O craziness ... 'cause he's freakin' calling out ISIS ... and he's doing it in the name of UFC fighter Tim Kennedy.

Kennedy's situation is no laughing matter ... the FBI was investigating "credible threats" against the fighter -- an uber Patriot -- earlier this year ... believing those threats were possibly coming from ISIS operatives.

Steve-O and Kennedy are buds ... so much so that Steve-O let Tim CHOKE HIM OUT at a recent comedy show ... and when we ran into the "Jackass" star at LAX he let it be known ... he's got Tim's back.

For the record ... Tim Kennedy is an ex-Green Beret ... Steve-O is not.

Check out the clip.

Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred Owes It All To Tiger Woods' #1 Mistress

Exclusive Details

0505-suddenbreakingnews-getty-tmz-01Tiger Woods could be a player in this year's Kentucky Derby if a horse named Suddenbreakingnews manages to win, place or show.

Experts say the 3-year-old thoroughbred has an outside shot at taking it all on Saturday -- and if he does, get ready to hear the name Rachel Uchitel, repeatedly. Turns out a mare named Uchitel birthed Suddenbreakingnews.

Sbn is currently at 20-1 odds -- kinda middle of the pack -- to win, and has already overcome 2 big hurdles ... his balls. Or lack thereof.

Kitty Taylor -- who brokered the $72,000 sale of Suddenbreakingnews -- says the horse is a gelding ... meaning his testicles were removed, since they never dropped. We're told it's really rare for a gelding to make it as far as the Derby.

Taylor adds, "Perhaps Tiger should have been gelded at some point."

We know where Elin Nordegren's NOT putting her money.
