Pregnant Man Claims Ex-Wife Locked Their Son in a Cage

11/15/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-thomas-nancy-beatie-getty-01Thomas Beatie says he's been keeping a shocking secret ... not that he's a man who gave birth, but that his ex-wife allegedly had been locking their kid in a cage.

Phoenix cops visited the home of Beatie's ex in late September and contacted child services after their 5-year-old son told an employee at his school when he was bad, his mom would put him in a dirty cage ... this according to the police report. 

Cops say Beatie's ex-wife told them she'd never do anything like that and the couple's 2 other kids backed her up. 

Thomas says the child who made the claim never backed down ... nevertheless, investigators closed the case for now due to a lack of evidence.

As for Thomas ... he'll be sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to one count of disorderly conduct. He had been charged with stalking his ex with a GPS when they were still married.  

Rob Lowe Radio Silent After Critical Paris Tweets

11/15/2015 6:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1115-rob-lowe-tmz-01Rob Lowe was quick to criticize after the Paris shootings, but he has shut down since scoffing at the Parisian decision to open its boarders to refugees.

Lowe pounced on social media after the attacks, saying "Oh, NOW France closes its borders. #Hollande." The reference is when the President of France ordered all borders to be closed after the shooting so the terrorists could not escape.

1115-rob-lowe-twitter-03The floodgates opened, with people slamming the actor as "a disgusting human being."  One person said, "Those refugees were fleeing their home countries to save their lives."

Lowe has said nothing publicly since Friday night, but he hasn't backed down either.

During a Big & Rich show in Charlotte Wednesday night, the duo brought a couple of soldiers up in honor of Veterans Day, and one of 'em happened to be young and good looking -- prompting John to say, "This is like the man version of Justin Bieber. If Justin actually did s*** for people."

Check it out ... John went on a rant about Justin's antics, and it got the crowd FIRED UP.

Never mind that Bieber actually does plenty of good deeds -- John's message was clear, "There's young men that could kick [Justin's] ass, all over this country!"

Christina Milian Odd Reaction to Lil Wayne 'Blackface' Costume

11/12/2015 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Leave it to Lil Wayne's ex, Christina Milian ... she's the first person we've seen find a silver lining to Jason Aldean doing blackface to dress up like Weezy -- or so it seems.

Christina was leaving Sunset Tower on Wednesday night when we asked what she thought about the country star's outrageous costume decision. Her response -- "He's admired by a lot of people."


Yeah, it's weird. Watch the video, because we're pretty sure she's referring to Wayne -- and that would mean it's cool to do blackface as long as you admire the person.

Soooo ... Wayne should be flattered by this?

11/11/2015 5:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Adrien Broner is lashing out at Floyd Mayweather -- saying the fact that Floyd ripped him in public this week was some "gay ass s**t."

Yeah, not good.

But in a brand new video to Floyd, Broner immediately tries to do damage control ... saying, "I have no problems with gay men or gay women. I have no problems with the homosexuality out there."


Here's the backstory -- Mayweather is mad at Broner because AB recently went on TV and said, "F**k The Money Team."

Floyd hit back in an interview with, saying, Broner should be THANKING The Money Team for everything Floyd and his crew have done for Broner over the years.

Mayweather said Broner "has a lot of growing up to do."

Now, Broner says he's trying to settle the beef ... but Floyd won't take his calls -- which is why he made a new video hoping Floyd will watch. 

Check out the clip ... but beware, there's a TON of offensive language. Enjoy.

Exclusive Video

Comedian Ron White is officially in the running ... for President of the United States of America -- and he's already giving Donald Trump a run for his money when it comes to bombastic rhetoric. 

Our photog got independent candidate White in NYC Wednesday night, moments after he announced his run for president and things got weird real quick. First, Ron said he doesn't necessarily WANT to be the next Commander in Chief ... then he laid his drug policies.

Basically, marijuana's good ... meth is very bad, and "SHUT UP!!"

Watch the video ... it's the craziest campaign speech yet. And that's saying a lot.

Blac Chyna Car Crash Accident Scene Photos

11/11/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110_blac_chyna_car_crash_accident_photos_launchBlac Chyna could be in big legal trouble ... her car was involved in a horrific accident early Sunday morning and the driver -- whoever it was -- is now a fugitive from justice.

We've obtained pics of the aftermath of the violent crash. Here's what we've learned. At 1:30 AM, Blac Chyna's white BMW was allegedly speeding down Reseda Blvd. south of Ventura Blvd. in the San Fernando Valley, when it blew a stop sign and slammed into a car that was turning left.

The collision was so violent Blac Chyna's car took out a pole and a fire hydrant. The other car flew across the lanes and we're told all 3 passengers were injured.

Our sources say the 3 passengers saw 2 African-American women in mini skirts get out of the BMW and jump in a car that had been following them, leaving the BMW behind.

Police have opened a hit and run investigation.

As for Blac Chyna ... one source tells us she stayed in Saturday night and was not driving. We're told she often loans her car out to friends, and that's likely what happened Saturday night.

Under California law, if the owner of a car gives someone else permission to drive and the driver gets in an accident, the owner and driver are legally on the hook.

Chyna's lawyer tells TMZ his client was not involved in the accident ... he says she wasn't even at the scene.

breaking news

1110-jason-aldean-black-face-lil-wayne-NASHVILLEGAB-01Jason Aldean is copping to going out in blackface and dreadlocks for Halloween.

The country star's rep confirms Aldean dressed up as Lil Wayne for his costume, and paraded around with a group of friends. It's unclear where he was at the time, but the group pic first surfaced on Nashville Gab.

So far, Jason's offered no apology -- and his rep made no specific mention about Aldean darkening his face with makeup.

It's worth noting ... Jason is one of the artists on Jay Z's Tidal streaming service.


The Game We Know It's BIG ... But a Disability?

11/10/2015 12:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-the-game-akmgsiThe Game has grossly overestimated where his giant junk can take him because as far as we know ... being well endowed does not warrant a disabled parking placard. 

The rapper pulled his tricked out jeep into a blue spot Tuesday during a bank run in the Valley -- but walked limp-free to and from his whip. A nearby security guard noticed Game's illegal parking job, and snapped a picture ... of the jeep.

Game's other ride ... was far more concealed this time around. But just in case you forgot (we know you didn't) ...


Jared Fogle Citizens Write Judge ... Let Him Rot In Jail

11/4/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-jared-fogle-doc-launch-03Jared Fogle and his plea deal have triggered outrage by common citizens who are writing to the judge, asking her to lock him up and throw away the key.

Judge Tanya Pratt has been getting letters, some obtained by TMZ, expressing indignation over the 5 to 12 year sentencing range.  

One woman complained Jared used his wealth and charity to lure underage kids into having sex with him, making him worse than "a stranger in a panel truck."

Another person complained her son got 10 years for texting a minor and trying to meet up ... a meeting that was never even consummated because of an FBI sting.

1103-jared-fogle-twitter-SUBThe sentiment from people writing in is clear ... if the punishment fits the crime, Jared should get life.

One person is slightly more forgiving, recommending 50 years, writing, "many children who are victims of sexual crimes commit suicide, do drugs or victimize other children." 

Pratt will make a decision on Fogle's fate later this month.  


Fresno State Football Player Cut From Team ... After Death Threat Arrest

11/3/2015 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103_christian-pryor-fresno-stateThe Fresno State football player who posted a threat to carry out a school shooting this week has been cut from the team ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter tells us, "Chris Pryor was a walk-on freshman football player for us. Up until this incident we had no negative dealings with him on or off the field."

"When we were alerted of this yesterday we took the threat seriously. We worked with the Fresno State Police Department to contact Chris. As a result of Chris' actions, he has immediately been dismissed from our football program."

Pryor was arrested on Monday for making criminal threats -- a felony. If convicted, he faces up to 3 years in prison. His father tells TMZ Sports the whole thing was a prank that got out of hand. 

Justin Bieber Caution In Iceland! That Water Is F-f-freezing

11/3/2015 12:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

110315_bieber_iceland_primaryJustin Bieber pulled a dumb and dangerous stunt when he jumped into glacial water in a remote part of Iceland for his "I'll Show You" music vid -- and people there are worried about copycat Beliebers.

Justin shot the frigid scene in the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon ... and while it doesn't appear too painful in the video, truth is the water could be deadly ... according to Jökulsárlón ferðaþjónusta ehf (common pronunciation) -- a tour company that works those waters.

Folks at the company tell us the water temp ranges between 3 degrees and -3 degrees Celsius -- so, if the temperature doesn't kill you, an iceberg might. We're told several are floating in the lagoon, and frequently flip and break up unexpectedly.

On top of all that ... the closest town for help is an hour away. 

The tour company says there are no actual rules against swimming in Jökulsárlón -- it's just stupid, so they don't expect people to do it. At least, they didn't until Justin came along.

Lisa Rinna & Harry Hamlin Sorry About the Swastika ... Just Keeping it Real

11/2/2015 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin Halloween CostumeLisa Rinna is apologizing for her husband Harry Hamlin, stepping out with a giant Swastika across his chest ... but her excuse probably won't sit well with anyone who was offended.  

Lisa and Harry dressed up as the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious and his gf Nancy Spungen for the Casamigos Halloween bash, and as you can imagine ... Harry's getup pissed off a lot of people.

Lisa says they were just trying to be authentic ... recreating a classic 1978 pic of Sid and Nancy. She says they didn't mean to offend anybody. However, when we got them out Saturday night, Harry changed his shirt, but was hardly apologetic for the Swastika.

Interestingly, even the 1986 biopic "Sid and Nancy" avoided this kind of PR nightmare -- replacing the Nazi symbol with the Soviet hammer and sickle.
