Nikolas Cruz's Brother Arrested for Trespassing At Marjory Stoneman Douglas

3/19/2018 5:35 PM PDT

The younger sibling of alleged Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz got busted by cops for venturing onto the school grounds where his brother is accused of going on a killing rampage. 

Zachary Cruz was arrested Monday by Broward County Sheriff's deputies after the 18-year-old allegedly rode his skateboard onto school property at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. Cops say he told police he decided to visit to "reflect on the school shooting and to soak it in."

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Cruz allegedly broke through multiple locked doors and gates to ride his board on campus. Police say he was captured on the school's security camera system ... and the school says it wants the case prosecuted. 

Zachary -- who was adopted -- was booked on one count of trespassing on the grounds or facility of a school, which is a misdemeanor. He's said to have been told by authorities to stay away from the high school ... for obvious reasons. 

As we reported ... prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Nikolas, who stands accused of gunning down 17 people

Jim Carrey Paints 'Monstrous' Huckabee Sanders Big Fan of Hawking, Though

3/18/2018 2:03 PM PDT

Jim Carrey has apparently broken into the theme park caricature painting game -- and his latest creation is quite the monstrosity ... Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The actor shared a photo this weekend of a portrait he painted of President Trump's Press Secretary, and it's clear he's no fan. He captioned his art ... "This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!"

Carrey has been pretty outspoken about his disdain for the Trump administration -- and he's even been sharing a ton of other portraits of Trump, Republicans who support him and ex-campaign aides alike ... many of which seem to be done in a relatively negative light. 

He does have love for other folks, though -- as seen in a recent portrait he painted of the late Stephen Hawking ... whom Carrey refers to as the "greatest mental athlete of our time" in the wake of his death. Hawking passed away last week.

Hey, if you can't beat 'em ... draw 'em. Right, Jim?

Lil Uzi Vert Now on the Hook with Rick Ross For Canceled Gig Lawsuit

3/17/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Lil Uzi Vert was supposed to co-star with Rick Ross on a summer show together, but instead they took the money and left fans hanging ... according to a lawsuit.

A Pennsylvania entertainment company just added Uzi as a defendant in the suit it filed against Rick. According to docs, both rappers were supposed to perform on June 10, 2017 at the minor league ballpark in PA. The company says it forked over about $200k to lock it down.

As we reported ... Rick bailed on the show, and the company says he showed really poor form by not canceling until 2 nights prior to the gig. According to the suit, Lil Uzi did the same. 

Now Ross and Uzi are both being sued for the roughly $200k in deposit money, plus reimbursement for what was lost by the last-minute cancellation.

We reached out to both rappers ... no word back so far.

'Crazy Alien' Matthew Morrison Outraged Over Animal Abuse Video ... PETA Demands Action

3/16/2018 6:49 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Matthew Morrison, the star of "Crazy Alien," is outraged and disgusted by the abuse of a dog on the film's set ... and says if he was there, he would've made every effort to stop it. 

TMZ obtained a clip of a German Shepherd locked in a cage that was suspended high above the ground. The cage was then violently spun around and hurled into a freezing bed of water. We're told the scene was shot several times.

Morrison said of the incident, "I've just been made aware and seen a video from the set of a film I worked on in China. My heart is broken to see any animal treated this way. Had I been on set or known about this, I would have made all efforts to stop this. I've called the producers to express my outrage." 

A spokesperson for PETA -- who provided the clip to TMZ -- tells us they want the film's cast and producers held accountable and are demanding the following:

--The scene be cut.

-- Director Hao Ning to commit to never working with live animals again.

-- The cast, including Morrison to donate their salaries to animal-protection charities in China.

-- The current condition of the dog used. 

"Crazy Alien" is currently in post-production, a release date has not been made. 

Snapchat We Need Domestic Violence Help After Rihanna Ad Backlash

3/16/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Snapchat is doing crisis management after getting called out by Rihanna for allowing an ad to run on the social media platform that poked fun of her domestic violence incident at the hands of Chris Brown.

A rep from the National Network to End Domestic Violence tells TMZ they were contacted by Snapchat Thursday asking if the social app could bring an NNEDV member onto its board.

The NNEDV rep we spoke to said their role will be to educate the Snapchat staff on domestic abuse and what's appropriate to post, so they don't make similar mistakes again. 

Rihanna blasted the ailing social media platform for running an ad for a game app called "Would You Rather?" that disturbingly asked: Would you rather "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown?"

People were quick to call Snapchat tone deaf, and Snapchat rapidly made a mea culpa, calling the ad  "disgusting" and admitting they made a "terrible mistake" by not putting the kibosh on it during the reviewing process.

'Jeopardy' Contestant Trebek Knew I Was in 'Willy Wonka' But, HE Didn't Ask!!!

3/15/2018 11:05 AM PDT

Alex Trebek hates all things 'Willy Wonka' -- that's our takeaway anyway, after hearing from the 'Jeopardy' contestant who was also in the movie ... which Alex completely ignored.

Paris Themmen -- who played little Mike Teavee in "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" -- tells TMZ ... he didn't bring up that interesting tidbit while getting introduced on Tuesday night's episode because Trebek had clearly decided NOT to mention it.

Themmen says Trebek had 3 "fun facts" about him, but obviously chose to run with a backpacking nugget instead. According to Themmen, Alex is a big travel guy, and that apparently took precedent with him over anything as stupid as classic movies.

Even crazier ... Themmen says there's history with Alex and 'Wonka.' He tells us his wife was a 'Jeopardy' champ back in the day, and also had the 'Wonka' fun fact about her hubby on her card. He says Alex ignored it then, too ... until he couldn't.

Justin Bieber No Bull ... Lambos Can't Go Uphill At Least Not Backwards

3/15/2018 7:49 AM PDT

Justin Bieber was revving and roaring his new Lamborghini in town -- but not cruising through streets like you might expect ... he was just trying to get out of a driveway.

Biebs was leaving a church service in Bev Hills Wednesday night, and on his way out ... he seemed to have the hardest time reversing his whip out of a steep entrance/exit.

It's pretty damn funny, especially considering this thing's got something like 730 HP ... and is supposed to be the luxury ride of bull-like caliber. You'd never guess all that, though, by how long it took JB to get up the hill here. And yet ... he eventually got it done.

Side note ... what color do you think this Lambo is? We thought white ... but then had to take a second look.

Tomi Lahren Me, Kick My Dog? Bitch, Please!!! (Even Though I Said I Did)

3/14/2018 5:26 PM PDT

Tomi Lahren's probably better off reading from a teleprompter, because she now says the social media post about kicking her dog was a joke that just fell on deaf ears.

We got Tomi at LAX Wednesday and asked her point-blank ... did she actually kick her dog, Kota, 5 times because she was making too much noise during Tomi's appearance on "FOX & Friends"? Remember, it was Tomi's own video of herself berating her dog for loudly chewing a bone that got her in trouble, anyway. 

Tomi denied abusing Kota, and said anyone with some logic would know she was joking.

She claims people are overreacting -- to HER SAYING she kicked her dog -- and did her best to prove she's a loving pet owner. Tomi tried to chalk this all up to a slow news day, but truth is the timing of her "joke" sucked.

Unless, somehow, she hadn't heard about United's dog issues.

Mike Tyson Accidentally Punched UFC Star 'Almost Broke My Nose!'

3/14/2018 2:36 PM PDT

Things got a little TOO real on Mike Tyson's movie set -- when the 51-year-old accidentally socked UFC star Fabricio Werdum with an actual punch ... and almost shattered his nose! 

Mike and Werdum were shooting a fight scene for Jean-Claude Van Damme's new "Kickboxer: Retaliation" when Mike miscalculated ... and REALLY punched Werdum. 

"Accident, but he punched me," Werdum tells TMZ Sports ... "almost broke my nose."

Werdum says the punch almost knocked him down -- but he let it slide because Mike was a super nice guy on set. 

"It's good 'cause he's Mike Tyson!!" 

If ya wanna see Werdum throw hands for real, he's fighting at UFC Fight Night: London this Saturday ... taking on Alexander Volkov in the main event.

Fabricio says he's getting his belt back after the Volkov fight -- but does he think he's gonna take on Stipe Miocic or Daniel Cormier?? 

We asked. Werdum answered.

O.J. Simpson Posing with a Murderer ... Hypothetically, Of Course

3/14/2018 10:32 AM PDT

O.J. Simpson was all smiles and snapshots just a couple days after confessing to murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman ... with 2 women ... who didn't seem to care.

Simpson was spotted out Tuesday night at Kona Grill in Summerlin, NV -- a ritzy 'burb within Vegas -- when two older ladies wanted to get their photos taken with The Juice.

Whether they'd seen him give a "hypothetical" blow-by-blow account of slaying his ex-wife and Goldman on national TV a few days earlier is unclear. What is clear, however, is that some people, including these two, still love them some O.J. all these years later.

Smile for the camera ... murders be damned.

Judith Regan O.J. Defamed Me How Dare He Say I Scripted Confession

3/14/2018 6:52 AM PDT

O.J. Simpson has defamed Judith Regan by suggesting she scripted his confession just so it would be more dramatic and she could make money ... and Judith is now mulling over a possible lawsuit.

Regan's lawyer, Jennifer McGrath, tells TMZ, her client is outraged by the claim of Simpson's lawyer, who said her interview with Simpson was scripted and, "Mr. Simpson went along because quite frankly he got a lot of money up front to go along with this."

McGrath tells TMZ it was Simpson who approached Regan to do the book and he was the one who insisted on calling it 'If I Did It.' As we reported, Regan has said Simpson's lawyer contacted her and said O.J. wanted to call it "I Did It" but wanted deniability for the sake of his children.

McGrath goes on to say Regan didn't write a single word of the book, and that "Simpson sat for the interview with Ms. Regan and spoke freely. To suggest that Ms. Regan is in any way responsible for Simpson's sick and depraved comments is absurd, laughable and actionable."

McGrath says Simpson's attack on Regan is "malicious."

By the way, Simpson's lawyer claiming O.J. got money up front might be a problem if he hid the assets from the Goldman and Brown family. As you know, they have a $33.5 million judgment that has swelled to $70 million.

President Trump I Tell Ya, These Mexicans 'Are Incredible Climbers'

3/13/2018 1:46 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump has concerns about some of the proposed border walls because, as he put it, "They are incredible climbers."

POTUS -- aka walking soundbite machine -- was touring the US-Mexican border just south of San Diego, checking out potential designs for the wall when he warned engineers, "Getting over the top is easy. These are like professional mountain climbers."

Trump also suggested a see-through wall might be the best option, so Border Patrol agents can see what's cooking on the other side. Still, his biggest concern was for Mexico's word-class mountaineers. He added, "They can't climb some of these walls. Some of them, they can."

Sounds like we're gonna need a Mt. Everest-sized wall.

Kelis to Nas Oh, My Lawyer's a Fat D**k?? Yours Just Screwed You!!!

3/13/2018 9:27 AM PDT

When Nas and Kelis go to war, their lawyers jump right in also ... according to Kelis, who says Nas' attorney is calling hers a "dick."

Of course, the exes have an ongoing dispute over their child and she just filed docs, obtained by TMZ, which describe a deposition for which she recently sat. Things apparently got very heated ... and Kelis says Nas' lawyer called her attorney a "fattie" and a "dick."

Kelis' attorney, Navid Moshtael, says he's used to being called names -- he's a lawyer, after all -- but says this is the first time it's come from an "experienced attorney" in front of clients and on the record.

Imagine the transcriber's fingers flying during the argument.

Kelis says the name-calling is gonna cost Nas, because she says his team blew it when they stopped the depo to get childish. She doesn't sound like she's up for giving them a do-over, either.
