Shia LeBeouf

I Was Raped

During Famous Art Show

11/28/2014 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128-shia-labouf-art-wm-2
Shia LeBeouf
says he was raped by a fan during his famous #IAMSORRY art event in Los Angeles this year ... and his girlfriend was standing just outside the room when it happened. 

LeBeouf told Dazed ... the woman walked into the private room -- where he was having silent one-on-one interactions with fans -- and whipped his legs for 10 minutes, then stripped off his clothes and "proceeded to rape" him.

Shia says it happened on Valentine's Day while his girlfriend was waiting in line to visit. Apparently, everyone in line was buzzing about the sexual encounter ... because Shia says his GF came in looking for an explanation, but he couldn't answer since he was supposed to be silent.

He doesn't say if he reported the alleged rape to police.

As part of the Dazed story ... Shia sat down for an hour with the reporter, but they both remained silent while wearing GoPro cams. It's awkward to say the least. The Q&A part was done beforehand by email.

According to real estate sources ... Zak is unloading his 4,700-square-foot Vegas townhouse -- complete with a chrome toilet, hidden dungeon behind a bookcase, and alleged paranormal activity. All that for $459,000.

Zak tells TMZ he bought the pad for $370K, but claims he ended up with a real demon for a roommate after bringing home a human skull ... for work purposes. 

1126-zak-bagans-skull-swipe-tmz-01He believes demonic forces yanked him outta bed and shoved his GF down a flight of stairs -- which might be the worst sales pitch ever. Instead of hiring an exorcist ... Zak says he got the hell out more than 2 years ago.

'Pregnant Man'

I GPS'd My Ex

But I Thought It Was Legal!

11/21/2014 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Pregnant Man Stalking
Thomas Beatie believes he had every right to track his ex-wife ... so says his current fiancee, who insists the famous "Pregnant Man" LEGALLY GPS'd the woman's whereabouts.

Amber Beatie tells TMZ ... after Nancy Beatie threatened to take off with Thomas' kids ... he secretly placed the GPS tracker on the car she was driving.

We're told Thomas did his own legal research and concluded GPSing her was fair game under Arizona law. He put the tracker on 2 years ago but she didn't discover it until recently.

Turns out he was right ... he was allowed to put the device on the car 2 years ago because at the time he was the registered owner.  

But Thomas transferred title to Nancy more than a year ago, and at that point cops say keeping the device on the whip is plain 'ol criminal stalking ... which is why he was arrested.

Beatie was released from jail Friday morning.

Charles Manson's Wedding

He Can Make Out

And Dine from Vending Machines

11/19/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-manson-wedding-fa-tmz-02Charles Manson will be allowed to make out with his bride, but he will never get to second base ... according to prison honchos.

Officials from the California Dept. of Corrections tell TMZ ... Manson's upcoming prison wedding next month at Corcoran State Prison will be G-rated and Spartan. There's no time limit on the first kiss but prison officials will cut it off before it becomes foreplay.  

We're told Manson will not be restrained during the ceremony but he won't be allowed physical contact with 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton other than locking lips and holding hands during the ceremony.   FYI ... the officials wouldn't say if tongue was fair game. 

The murderer can't wear a tux -- he'll get hitched in Corcoran couture, but the bride can wear what she wants. 

As we reported, the bride and groom can invite up to 10 guests who are not inmates, but they won't be feasting on salmon. The meal will be catered by the company that provides Cup-O-Noodles with the push of a button. The good news ... there are pastries in the vending machines.

And, as we told you, Manson will not get conjugal visits.

This is the wedding where if the groom breaks a glass, he'll go into solitary.

Charles Manson

I'm Gonna Have a Killer Wedding

1117-charles-manson-and-star-mansondirect-dot-com-01
Charles Manson knows a thing or two about "till death do us part," so he's taking the marriage plunge.

The man convicted of slaughtering Sharon Tate and 6 others got a marriage license earlier this month. The 80-year-old murderer is marrying 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton, who runs a Manson fan website.

Burton says the ceremony will go down next month behind prison walls. They can invite up to 10 free people.



There won't be any little Mansons running around ... he's not entitled to conjugal visits. Manson does have several grown children. Harvey interviewed one of his sons, back in his KCBS days.

This time the ball and chain are both real and metaphoric.

The co-creators of the "Bumfights" video series were arrested in Thailand over the weekend for allegedly packaging child body parts stolen from a hospital, and shipping them to the U.S. ... labeled as "toys."

The 3 boxes -- reportedly intended for friends in Las Vegas as a prank -- contained several body parts ... including a child's foot, an infant's head, an adult heart and 2 pieces of adult skin.

Both guys were taken into custody and questioned by cops, but were eventually released for lack of evidence. They've since fled to Cambodia.

EXCLUSIVE

Margaret Cho Blood PaintingMargaret Cho got a painting made out of her own blood ... and it actually looks pretty damn cool.

BACKSTORY: NYC artist Vincent Castiglia made a name for himself by painting with blood, so back in April she commissioned him to take 72 milliliters of her red stuff for a portrait.

Cho wanted Castiglia to use her menstrual blood ... but he pulled the plug because her production level was woefully deficient.


The piece took 6 months to complete. It would normally cost around $20K -- but since he and Margaret are friends, Castiglia hooked the comedian up with a solid, undisclosed discount.

So we gotta ask ...

Nik Wallenda

Grandma NOT Impressed

With Sunday's Death-Defying Tightrope Walk

EXCLUSIVE

1030_Nik-Wallenda_chicago_skyline_composite_2
Daredevil Nik Wallenda will flirt with death Sunday in Chicago -- traversing 2 buildings -- but it's still not enough to impress his grandma.

Nik will step on a high wire Sunday which will be attached to 2 skyscrapers -- 2 city blocks apart. It will be an uphill walk -- the equivalent of 8 stories, and Nik will be blindfolded for part of it.

It's not enough to wow or scare his 87-year-old Oma, who watched Nik practice this week. Oma herself was a performer in the Wallenda family -- her thing was hanging by her teeth on a high wire.

Nik tells us he spiced things up with a few tricks ... backwards blindfolding and kneeling on the wire. She still wasn't blown away.

Granny should know ... Nik will walk without a net or harness Sunday. It will air live at 7 PM ET on Discovery.
