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.
During SXSW Show
3/14/2014 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lady Gaga's antics are sometimes vomit inducing, but this is ridiculous ... last night at her SXSW show, she actually let some chick VOMIT ALL OVER HER while she performed.
The vomiter is no amateur ... she's actually a "vomit painter" (actual profession) named Millie Brown, who is known for drinking various liquids and then vomiting them up onto a canvas. In this case ... the canvas was Lady Gaga.
Gaga was playing drums on a song called "Swine" when Brown, after drinking neon green liquid, proceeded to stand over her, stick her fingers down her throat, and vomit the green liquid all over Gaga.
Watch the performance for yourself ... it's sick. Literally.
Golfer Teed Up On My Ass
And Hurt Me Bad
3/13/2014 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A hot chick is suing Playboy and a golfer for coming up with a cockamamie stunt -- placing a golf tee in her butt and then trying to drive a ball off of it. It didn't end well.
Liz Dickson claims in her lawsuit she was at an L.A. area golf course back in March, 2012 for a Playboy tournament, when she was instructed to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with comedian and radio host Kevin Klein.
Dickson says a golf tee was placed between her butt cheeks and a golf ball was balanced on the top of the tee. Klein then took a whack, but his swing sucked and he whacked her in the ass.
Dickson claims she suffered severe injuries, some of which are permanent. We're assuming the tee was removed.
She's suing for $500K plus punitive damages.
I Had a Chef in Prison
Best Microwave Cook Ever
3/13/2014 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petey Pablo had a personal chef while he was locked up for his firearms conviction ... but picture less Wolfgang Puck, and more Miss Claudette.
Pablo tells TMZ ... he paid another inmate to cook his meals -- dishes like chicken, pizza, and rice and beans. Wolf ranges are not available in the big house, but microwaves were readily available.
The "chef" would buy ingredients from the prison commissary and whip up the meals. Pablo's favorite -- a spicy rice bowl with jalapenos and available meat. Pablo boasts, "It was some of the best food you could ever make in a microwave."
The rapper says he learned a hard lesson behind bars ... and vows to never carry a gun again.
Johnny Weir's Husband
... In a Good Way
3/13/2014 3:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ever wonder what happens inside Johnny Weir's bedroom? Well, to paraphrase Captain Ahab, "Thar he blows!"
TMZ Sports spoke with the figure skating legend's hubby Victor Voronov out in L.A. last night ... when we brought up the convo we had with Johnny back in December, when he told us about the sex fantasy he'd fulfill if he ever went to space.
But it was clear Victor thinks Johnny needs to raise the bar ... because they've already done the oral thing on Earth ... and instead if they ever leave the stratosphere, they'd need to pull off something with a higher degree of difficulty.
Try to wrap your head around that.
Cell Tower Could Be the Key
In Mysterious Disappearance
3/13/2014 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A cell tower in Kota Bharu could be the missing puzzle piece in the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 last weekend.
There's a theory ... the aircraft doubled back over Malaysia after it began to cross the South China Sea, and crashed off the opposite coast instead ... somewhere in the Malacca Strait.
Malaysian officials have rejected the theory -- but if it's true (as some still believe) the plane would have passed over the city of Kota Bharu, which contains a powerful Celcom cellular phone tower.
Credible mobile analysts tell TMZ, if the plane flew over the tower there's a high likelihood the tower would contain data transmitted by cell phones inside the aircraft ... if the phones were on.
Roughly 30% of passengers leave their phones ON during flights -- this according to published reports.
So ... the cellular tower could be the critical piece of evidence to either prove or disprove the U-turn theory.
We've reached out to Celcom about possible data transmitted to the Kota Bharu cell tower -- so far, no word back.

Joey says he was later ticketed by cops for disorderly conduct.
The cost of doing business.
Legendary Racehorses Exhumed
From Trackside Graves
3/11/2014 8:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Forget beating a dead horse, they're EXHUMING them at the Hollywood Park race track ... in an effort to relocate the expired animals before the track is torn down.
One of the horses being dug up is Native Diver ... a former champion who won over $1 million in his career before he died in 1967. He was buried beside the track in a grave marked with a special monument.
But now that Hollywood Park is closed for good, Native Diver's former owner says he doesn't want to see the horse buried under the real estate development that's set to replace the track.
So, he went to USC and asked the archaeology department to help excavate the horse ... which will be moved to Del Mar race track in San Diego before he's placed in a permanent resting spot.
The students who are assisting on the dig have already unearthed Native Diver. According to reports, there are two more horses set for excavation.
Umbrella Wielding Man vs. Taser
3/11/2014 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A random guy wielding a giant deck umbrella ... in a standoff with 2 Santa Monica police officers ... armed with tasers -- who do you think comes out on top?
Yeah ... tasers are pretty much undefeated.
It appears the cops tried to talk it out with him, but when he kept swinging the umbrella like a weapon ... the taser came out and dude went down like a sack of wet cement.
Police say the man had just been kicked out of Starbucks for annoying customers -- and when they arrived he was making suicidal threats.
Our newsroom's divided -- did the cops use excessive force ... or merely take him down safely?
So, we gotta ask ...
I Wanna Be The Double Cup King
3/8/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber wants to be the Donald Trump of Double Cups ... the Sultan of Sizzurp ... because he wants to go into business to create his own line of signature styrofoam cups ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Bieber tell us ... the boring styrofoam cup -- which has been around since the 40s -- has become the container of choice for lean ... and Justin thinks it's a cool money-maker.
Sources tell us, Bieber has a special affinity for styrofoam because he loves to doodle on them, and that will be the inspiration for the line of cups with the JB logo.
By the way ... Bieber isn't the first person to jump on the styrofoam train. Rick Ross and Soulja Boy both have lines of cups with their monikers.
Frank Ocean Sued
He Didn't Want Chipotle Logo in Chipotle Ad
3/7/2014 6:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Frank Ocean wanted to have his burrito and eat it too -- metaphorically speaking -- because Chipotle Mexican Grill just sued the singer for backing out of an ad ... for what seems like the most ridiculous reason.
According to the suit, filed today in L.A. County ... Chipotle signed Frank to a $425,000 deal to sing a remake of "Pure Imagination" for a new animated ad.
But Chipotle claims Frank never recorded the track because when they showed him the final cut ... Frank was pissed the company's logo appeared at the end of the spot.
To reiterate ... he was mad Chipotle's logo was in a Chipotle advertisement.
The restaurant says it got an email from Frank's people claiming Frank thought he was promised final say over the recording and all promotional materials -- and believed the company was in breach when it refused to remove its logo.
Chipotle is suing to get back the $212,500 advance it paid Ocean.
By the way, Fiona Apple ended up doing the spot instead of Frank.
20th Century Fox
Sued For Creating Real
Nightmare on Elm Street
3/7/2014 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A Los Angeles man claims he suffers from terrifying nightmares and even faint noises drive him insane ... all because of a Hollywood movie shoot in his hood.
John Drinkwater claims in a new lawsuit ... 20th Century Fox invaded his Sherman Oaks neighborhood for a few days last March to shoot a TV pilot … but the production became an assault with sounds of gunshots and screeching car chases.
Drinkwater says the film crews may be gone, but not in his head. He says he has debilitating nightmares, describing one as "film companies coming into [my] house at night, making lots of noise and refusing to leave."
Drinkwater says it doesn't end with bad dreams. He says the fear of film crews coming back sends him into panic attacks, whenever he sees "an unknown person who looks like they might be part of a film crew."
Drinkwater claims he now has PTSD ... and his doctor both diagnosed it and traces it back to the FOX shoot.
And this very sensitive guy also says he has a hearing disorder and now suffers from phonophobia -- a fear of loud sounds -- and blames it on the movie shoot.
