Viral Poop Girl My Crappy Ending Is Getting Real Sweet

5/21/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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

EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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

5/6/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

0503-anne-frank-vr-room-GETTY-JOHAN_HIRSCH-01Are you ready for the Anne Frank experience? A virtual reality filmmaker thinks you are ... because he's producing "Anne" to put viewers right there in the attic with her.

Jonah Hirsch just announced the production which aims to give viewers the feeling of being in the Secret Annex with Anne and other members in hiding.

The producers -- who've already mocked up a VR version of Anne's room -- think the new technology will be perfect way to share Anne's story with younger generations.

Merchandising for the film might be tricky.

Dana Stubblefield Accuser Bizarre Babysitting Profile 'I Like Zumba, I Need Job'

Breaking News

stubblefield-profile

The job application that piqued Dana Stubblefield's attention is bizarre to say the least -- with the woman strangely touting her penchant for "zumba" ... to get a job as a BABYSITTER. 

Both Stubblefield and the accuser have acknowledged that Dana found the woman through the SitterCity.com babysitter website ... and liked her profile so much, he called her to his home for an interview. 

But the profile, handed out by Stubblefield's legal team, is odd -- starting with the fact the woman claims she's 32 years old ... with 29 years of paid experience as a babysitter. 

Plus, here's what she wrote under the "Bio" section -- "I like walking with a dog and kids. I like zumba. I need a job, I need payment doctor, dentist, sick, gas, phone, tax, light. I'm learning a zumba I want be zumba job. I like mall and nice restaurant."

Stubblefield's attorneys have also included an "About Me" section from the woman's Facebook profile. Here's how it reads: 

Under "Work and Education" she lists -- "I fuller feeling lose weight."

Under "Places She's Lived" she writes -- "Be sexy dress nice dress-up."

Under "Contact and Basic Info" -- "DJ, sexy, drunk, zumba, dance and exercise, sometime had fun time."

Under "Family and Relationships" -- "no money gas."

Sources connected to the case tell us English does not appear to be the woman's first language. 

Prosecutors say the woman is mentally disabled. Stubblefield's team says she's competent

Amy Schumer 'Rude Fan' Gets Death Threats ... Calls Amy a Cyberbully

5/3/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-amy-schumer-tmzAmy Schumer is inciting 4 million people to go after a guy who snagged photos and video of her without her approval -- and he says those fans are threatening his life.

Leslie Brewer tells TMZ he's been harassed non-stop since Schumer posted his photo over the weekend and accused him of invading her space and recording without permission while she was jogging in Greenville, SC. 

Brewer, who is black, claims he's been called the n-word -- and had a fan say, "Shoot him in the face." Another told Amy, "If we see him we will jump him for you" ... and he claims another threatened to burn him and his wife and daughter.

He has not reported any threats to police.

Leslie says he stopped shooting as soon as Amy asked, and posted video of the incident. Amy says the video is heavily edited and doesn't show Leslie chasing and yelling at her to stop for a pic.

He's blaming Amy for turning fans into violent thugs, and wants her to call off the hounds.

Real Mike Ditka Meets Drunk Mike Ditka At Bachelor Party Turn Up

5/3/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0502_mike_ditka_sports-wmA bunch of drunk guys on a bachelor party weekend thought it would be funny to dress the groom up like Mike Ditka on Friday and go to Ditka's steakhouse in Chicago.

Turns out ... BEST. IDEA. EVER!!! 

The bachelor, David Barnett, lives in Florida -- but his buddies threw the party in Chicago so they could party during NFL Draft weekend. Barnett's also a huge Bears fan. 

And because every bachelor party needs drunken buffoonery ... the guys made Barnett dress up like Da Coach for their dinner at Ditka's.

As fate would have it, Mike was actually in the restaurant that night ... heard about his boozy doppelganger ... and came over for a face-to-legendary-face meeting. 

Good luck topping that, bachelorette party. 

O-Town Tour Demands Are All '90s Or Nothing

5/2/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-otown-getty-tmz-01O-Town's either stuck in the '90s or they just have a great sense of humor about their upcoming tour.

The boy band's hitting the road with 98 Degrees, Dream and Ryan Cabrera for the nostalgic MY2K Tour and their rider is filled with throwback items like a '90s boombox "to play their sweet cassette collection" ... and a Nintendo 64 to "play GoldenEye." 

Other backstage demands include cases of local beer, assorted liquors, 5 cans of silly string and a back scratcher.

Most bizarre on their list is definitely the kitty litter and wet cat food "for the stray cats the band takes in while on the road."

That's gotta be code.

Nipsey Hussle Spell My Name Right Or There's No Show

5/1/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_nipsy_hussle_compositeNipsey Hussle has his priorities when he performs, caring way more about credit than booze.

We got hold of the rapper's rider from an Atlanta gig. Money is at the top of the list -- payment in crisp $100 bills ... we're told 250 of them. Next in line is promotion -- "All advertisements MUST use the proper spelling and correct pronunciation." 

Nipsey also won't play to an empty house ... he'll only go onstage if the venue's at 25% capacity, minimum. 

The rapper's pretty easy to please in the food and beverage dept -- 2 bottles of Moet -- although he does demand Polo crewnecks at his ready disposal. 

Now that's some sweet fashion hustle.

Lionel Richie Hello, Would You Like To Buy My Makeup?

EXCLUSIVE

0429-lionel-richie-makeup-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Lionel Richie wants you to stay pretty all night long -- and that appears to be the hook for the cosmetic line he wants to launch.

The singer launched his new business endeavor last week when his company filed a trademark for "Hello By Lionel Richie."

The copyright covers just about everything beauty related ... cosmetics, face masks, body glitter, bath beads, hair bows, nail polish, etc.

And there's a separate trademark for candles and candle accessories.

Hello ... way better than Brickhouse cosmetics. 

Starbucks Sued Again Easy On The Ice!! And Pay Us $5 Million

4/30/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_starbucks_compositeStarbucks is shorting cold drink lovers by loading up on ice cubes, and one thirsty Illinois customer's so pissed about it ... she's filed a lawsuit.

The issue, according to docs ... is not getting the advertised amount of beverage. For example, a venti is supposed to be 24 ounces, but the suit says more often you get as little as 14 because "large pieces of ice take up more space."

It's hardly rocket science, but the slighted customer is seeking damages in excess of $5 million.

Starbucks says the lawsuit is absurd because ... "Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage." It says it will gladly remake any beverage for an unsatisfied customer.

Starbucks was also sued last month for hot beverages being grossly underfilled.
