Darius McCrary

Ex-Wife Perjures Herself

Retracts Claim of Violence Against Son

3/28/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Darius McCrary Custody Battle Michael JacksonDarius McCrary's ex-wife says she lied when she swore under oath he beat his kid.

Karrine "Superhead" Steffans filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- admitting she perjured herself when she joined forces with Darius' baby mama in a child support war over their young son. Karrine claimed she saw her ex beat the boy with a spoon.  

But Karrine had a change of heart, and filed new legal docs saying she lied because she was "hurt and upset" over their divorce. Tell that to a judge in a perjury case.

Sometimes allies can shoot you in the foot.

EXCLUSIVE

Jason Statham Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Buy Home
Jason Statham and his supermodel GF Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are finally taking the big plunge ... by going halfsies on a ballin' $13 mil Bev Hills estate.

There's only one sure way to know Hollywood love is real ... shackin' up. Our real estate sources say the action star and his leading lady went 50/50 on a sprawling 5-bed, 8-bath, 7119 sq. ft. mansion that even has a waterfall pool.

The timing  is perfect -- they just celebrated 5 years of love. And the plot thickens, because Rosie's been sporting what looks like an engagement ring since December.

Mazel.

A$AP Mob

Sued Over Crowd Surfing Disaster

EXCLUSIVE

0327-a$ap-mob-GETTY-01A$AP Mob hurled themselves into a packed crowd in Hollywood and allowed concertgoers to do the same ... and a woman claims they left her in a world of hurt.

The group is being sued by a woman who attended their concert at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood back in 2013. Tammy Nguyen claims she was a VIP at the show when A$AP Mob took the stage at around 11PM. There was lots of crowd surfing during the evening, but it really intensified.

She says A$AP members, including Darold Ferguson, Jr. -- better known as A$AP Ferg -- were diving in the crowd, along with a bunch of fans. When Ferguson jumped, Nguyen says he nailed her.   And what's worse, she says she had to fight her way through the crowd to get out, and security didn't help.

She's suing the group and Ferguson.

Disarmed Alleged Bad Guy

EXCLUSIVE

0327-phoenix-jones-new-haven-police-TMZSPORTS_01Real-life superhero Phoenix Jones claims he's saved the day again ... this time, the MMA fighter says he chased down a stabbing suspect in Connecticut and DISARMED the perp. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Jones -- real name Ben Fodor -- filled out a statement with the New Haven PD saying he was walking down the street Friday when, "I saw a man being chased who was bleeding from his face."

Fodor -- who made headlines as a real-life crime-fighter in Seattle -- says he put on his bulletproof vest and confronted a man he believed to be the "stabbing suspect."

Jones says the man then displayed a hunting knife ... so he proceeded to disarm the alleged bad guy. Once he believed the threat was neutralized, Jones says he went back and waited with the victim until medics arrived. 

The 26-year-old undefeated MMA fighter says he captured the entire incident on his go-pro camera ... and handed the footage over to police. 

Cops confirm a report was made -- but say they are still investigating the matter ... including Phoenix's role in the incident.  

Stay tuned ...

I Apologize to the Cop

My Son Wasn't Profiled

3/27/2015 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0327-taraji-p-henson-TMZ-01

Taraji P. Henson just gave a public mea culpa, profusely apologizing to a police officer she accused of racism.

The "Empire" actress had accused a Glendale cop of profiling her son during a traffic stop, but the Glendale PD blew her claim out of the water by releasing dash cam video of the stop, and the cop could not have been nicer. In fact, he let Taraji's son, Marcel Johnson, skate on a traffic violation and possession of Ritalin without a prescription.

Taraji now says, "I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother's job is not easy and neither is a police officer's."

She adds, "Sometimes as humans WE overreact without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I overreacted and for that I apologize."

Our translation ... Marcel probably wasn't exactly straight with his mom on what went down.

Taraji ends by saying, "Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son."

Smart move.

Eddie Murphy Hot FamilyA Maui beach was blanketed by Eddie Murphy's smoking hot chicks this week -- one of them was his girlfriend and the other 2 were his daughters.

Hands down ... this vacay looks better than almost all of Eddie's movies in the last 10 years.

Bobby Brown

Keeping the Faith

at Bobbi Kristina's New Medical Facility

3/27/2015 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327_bobby_brown_entering_medical_Center_INF_WMBobby Brown is in it for the long haul -- standing firm in his belief Bobbi Kristina can pull out of her coma ... now that she's getting treatment at a facility known for its long term care.

Bobby was walking outside DeKalb Medical this week. It's touted as the best Long Term Acute Care hospital in the Atlanta area ... partly because the facility has equipment to provide continuous monitoring of vital signs -- crucial in a case like Bobbi Kristina's.

As we reported ... doctors at Emory University Hospital tested her responsiveness last week before she was transferred to DeKalb. We're told there was no change.

Sources tell us Bobby is still leaning on the power of prayer to save his daughter ... who's remained unconscious since Feb 1.

Prince

Sued for Allegedly Poaching 'Voice' Contestant

3/27/2015 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-prince-judith-hill-tmz-01Prince shamelessly stole a recording artist away from the producer who discovered Lady Gaga ... and her company is now going after The Purple One in court.

Singer Judith Hill made a name for herself on "The Voice" in 2013. Sony got interested in her. Ditto Jolene Cherry, the famed producer who first eyed Lady Gaga. Sony and Cherry partnered and claim they signed her to an exclusive recording deal.

A few months ago, Sony and Cherry heard rumblings that Hill was meeting with Prince for a recording session. They warned her to stop earlier this month, only to learn that she and Prince recorded an entire album -- 11 songs -- and released it Monday as a free Internet download.

Cherry is now going after Prince with a vengeance, courtesy of her lawyer Larry Stein, asking not only for regular damages but punitive damages for underhandedness.

'Superman' Villain

Christopher Reeve Was An Ass!

I Nearly Knocked Him Out

3/27/2015 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

One of Christopher Reeve's former co-stars is making outrageous accusations about his attitude on the set of "Superman" ... and this will blow your mind ... if you believe it.

We ran into Jack O'Halloran, who played Non ... the mute villain from Krypton ... and the photog asked him about working with Reeve -- and he ripped into the late actor for being a Prima donna who "believed his own publicity."

Now, up front -- we can't confirm any of O'Halloran's claims -- and to be honest ... we're really big fans of Christopher ... which is why this video was so shocking to us.

O'Halloran went on to tell a story about almost punching Reeve during a dispute on set and says, "He was like a child. He wanted to be Superman and Clark Kent all the time."

You gotta see his story about Reeve and the guy who played Jimmy Olsen too.

Again ... we're not necessarily buying 'em, but O'Halloran's stories are unique.

Taraji P. Henson's Son

Police Video Shoots Down

Racial Profiling Claim

3/27/2015 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Taraji P. Henson says her son was racially profiled by cops on 2 different occasions -- but police video of one of the incidents completely refutes that claim ... because the officer could NOT have been nicer.

The "Empire" star recently complained her 20-year-old son Marcel Johnson was pulled over by a Glendale, CA officer who illegally searched the car, cited him for marijuana possession, but didn't ticket him for the original infraction.

Watch the dash cam video of the full stop ... the officer pulls over Marcel for allegedly failing to yield at a crosswalk. When the officer asks Marcel if he has anything illegal in the car ... he confesses he has some marijuana. The officer actually thanked him for being honest.

When you see the clip ... it's hard to say the cop had it out for Marcel. As for the alleged illegal search ... the officer says he smelled the weed -- which alone would give him probable cause, plus Marcel copped to it.

Taraji says the 2nd incident went down at USC when police allegedly stopped Marcel for "having his hands in his pockets." No video of that one yet.

Cookie's rarely wrong, but this time it looks like she is ... or maybe her son gave her bum info about the Glendale incident. We've got a call into her rep.

Jake Gyllenhaal

... For New Boxing Flick

Jake Gyllenhaal is a beast. 

The actor got insanely ripped for his role in the upcoming "Southpaw" flick ... a movie about a boxer who loses everything and has to fight to get his life back. 

The movie looks super emotional ... and 50 Cent has a role in it ... but the headline here is that Gyllenhaal looks like a real-life fighter in the new trailer.
