5 Seconds of Summer bassist Calum Hood went on Twitter and actually admitted to sending some girl a picture of his privates (after she posted the video for the world to see, of course).
But the real question is ... who the hell sends out pictures of their dong?!?

8/29/2014 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A contestant on the new FOX reality show "Utopia" has already managed to get herself kicked off... BEFORE cameras start rolling.
FOX and Talpa (the production co.) producers say Andrea Cox did not enter the "Utopia" with the other 14 competitors today ... "due to violation of production policies. Replacement details will be announced." The show began Friday afternoon on a livestream.
Production sources tell us Cox recently figured out a way to contact other contestants -- known as "pioneers" on the show -- during a period when they were all supposed to be sequestered from each other.
The show features 15 "pioneers" who have to reboot their own society from scratch on a private piece of land, and they have a full year to do it. The TV debut is Sept. 7 on FOX.
Cox can watch from home.
Brett Ratner Sued
'Hercules' Rager Left Me a Bloody Mess ...
Says Party Guest
8/29/2014 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Hercules" director Brett Ratner is being sued by a woman who went to an after party at his Beverly Hills mansion ... and left with a bloodied leg and a sliced Achilles tendon.
Lauryn Flynn -- a celeb stylist who says she's worked with Kate Bosworth, Eva Mendes and Kristen Stewart -- was at the party Brett threw July 24 after the Hercules premiere. She says she was asked to take off her shoes as she entered the home.
During the party, Flynn says she decided to go downstairs into the basement where a DJ was spinning for 100-200 people. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Flynn says someone decided to start dancing on a small glass table. You know what happened next.
Flynn says the table shattered, launching glass shards "like bullets across the room." She says she looked down and saw a pool of blood around her feet ... she realized her Achilles tendon had been cut.
In the docs, Flynn says she thinks a decision was made to NOT call 911 because it would cause bad publicity for Brett. Instead she went to the hospital in an Uber. She says she had to get 87 stitches.
Flynn says a friend told her later that Brett had said, "People get hurt here all the time. Just clean it up."
She says she's been unable to work ... and has no idea when she'll be able to again. She's suing for unspecified damages.

Jon Voight says he's delighted Brad Pitt finally made an honest woman of his daughter Angelina Jolie ... even though they didn't invite him to the wedding.
The father of the bride was leaving breakfast in L.A. when he told a photog he's anxious to catch up with the newlyweds and celebrate their wedding.
JV doesn't seem the least bit bitter about not getting an invitation -- but things did get a little awkward when the photog asked when he'd be raising a glass to Brad and Angie.
Watch, ya gotta feel for Jon a little.

8/29/2014 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Happy day for Suri Cruise ... coyotes did not make a snack of her lost pup, Honey ... because we're told the little Chihuahua has been found -- safe!
The people at Lucky Puppy Rescue tell us they amped up their search for the pooch after getting reports of 2 sightings this week, and found her on Wednesday ... not far from where she disappeared in Benedict Canyon.
We're told she's been checked out by a vet and is in good shape ... after surviving on her own since Sunday in the coyote-infested canyon.
Cold-hearted cynics might think the saved dog, pictured with the vet ... looks kinda different from the dog in the reward poster.
But we're told the vet confirmed it was Honey by scanning the dog's microchip.
There was a $1,000 reward, but nobody's saying who, if anyone, is getting it.
So ... we gotta ask ...

Joe Francis is now facing 7 misdemeanor counts for his alleged attack at "Girls Gone Wild" headquarters, and a judge has issued a warrant for his arrest.
TMZ broke the story ... Joe got busted back in May after scrapping with a security guard and a 'GGW' employee at his old office. He was also hauled in for violating a restraining order that required him to stay away from the building.
Now prosecutors have charged Joe with 1 count of criminal threats, 2 counts trespassing, 1 count of battery, and 3 counts of disobeying a court order.
According to a source close to Joe ... he actually called cops the night of the arrest, because he says the security guard attacked HIM. We're told there is surveillance video to support Joe's claim.
As for the restraining order, Joe believed 'GGW' had moved out of the building ... so he felt the order no longer applied. Plus, we're told he had only gone there to pick up belongings from his old office.

As for Olsen's twin sister -- she has yet to be seen at the event.
Luckily she didn't fall off the horse and get amnesia this time.

The incriminating video showing Britney Spears' now ex-boyfriend cheating on her is now owned by none other than Britney's dad ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... a video has surfaced of David Lucado dancing with and kissing a woman a couple of weeks ago. A rep for Jamie Spears tells TMZ ... when Jamie got wind of the video he contacted the agency that was selling it and swiftly coughed up a SUBSTANTIAL amount of money to secure it.
We're told Jamie -- who has been Britney's conservator for over 6 years -- then called Britney and told her he had something to show her ... and it was important. When Brit saw the evidence that was all she needed ... she immediately declared the relationship over.
Jamie's rep tells us he took the action to protect his daughter from David and from the embarrassment of the video going public.
Jamie's rep says the video is under lock and key and will never be seen again.
