Toby Sheldon -- who became famous for spending more than $100k to look like Justin Bieber -- has been found dead ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Toby's body was found in a Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley on August 21. He has been reported missing since August 18.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, police found drugs in the room but it's unclear how he died.

When Toby went missing, the LAPD said the disappearance may have been triggered by a breakup with his boyfriend.

The 35-year-old had appeared on the shows "Botched" and "My Strange Addiction."

Kardashian Fireworks

Not Our Fault!

Officials Play Blame Game

8/26/2015 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_james_harden_klhoe_kardashian_getty_tmz-2The U.S. Coast Guard and L.A. County Sheriff's Department are stuck between a rock and a Kardashian place ... after Khloe's explosive birthday gift for her BF James Harden.

TMZ has learned both agencies are getting flooded with complaints about the massive fireworks display that went off at midnight, waking up thousands of people. So, who's to blame? Let the finger pointing begin. 

According to our law enforcement sources ... the Coast Guard informed the Sheriff on Monday -- via email -- that Boulevard Management (Kris Jenner's production co.) would be setting off fireworks at 11:59 PM. The CG also made it clear NO permit was necessary. 

The Sheriff's Dept. says because the boat was 100 feet outside the breakwater ... the CG was the primary enforcement agency. As for noise violations? Both agencies agree that falls under the Sheriff's watch -- but the Sheriff's Dept. says it would only check a noise problem IF the Coast Guard reported it.

Here's why that doesn't add up. We're told at least one Sheriff's official in the area heard the noise himself -- plus, there were dozens of 911 complaints about it. So, the Sheriff's Dept. knew and did nothing.  

Ronda Rousey Porn Trailer

Naked Armbars ...

For Miesha Taint!

8/26/2015 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's a Ronda Rousey fantasy come true -- for UFC and porn fans alike --  and TMZ Sports has the first look at "Ronda ArousMe" ... the highly anticipated porn parody of the champ.

The good folks at Burning Angel won't say when they'll have a full release of the XXX film ... so, soak this up. It features Ronda taking on foes like Miesha Taint. Awesome porn wordplay, right? 

It's also got tons of MMA action and some dialogue ... not that you care.  

FYI -- Burning Angel is NOT the company that made the muti-million dollar offer for the real Ronda to do a porn, but since she'll NEVER actually do that -- this is as close as you're gonna get. 

Hands where we can see 'em, please.

Virginia Shooter

Wanted Race War After SC Church Shooting ...

Praised VA Tech Killer

8/26/2015 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0826-bryce-williams-twitterBryce Williams/Vester Flanagan said the Charleston Church shooting in June spurred his homicidal rage ... which exploded this morning when he took the lives of a Virginia reporter and photographer.

ABC News in NYC says it received a 23-page fax from Williams this morning -- almost 2 hours after he had killed Alison Parker and Adam Ward. In the document ... he says he put a down payment on a gun on June 19, 2 days after the Charleston tragedy.

He wrote, "What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims' initials on them." He also addresses the Charleston shooter directly, writing ... "As for Dylann Roof? You want a race war (expletive)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE (expletive)!!!"

Williams also called out the Columbine and Virginia Tech shooters -- "Also, I was influenced by Seung-Hui Cho. That's my boy right there. He got NEARLY double the amount that Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold got...just sayin."

The document also includes a "Suicide Note for Friends and Family" ... where he says he suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment, and was attacked for being a gay, black man.

Bryce Williams

Holding Submachine Gun ... In News Report

8/26/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bryce Williams, aka Vester Flanagan, the man who shot and killed two journalists live on TV today, once reported on gun control armed with an assault weapon.

The disturbing footage shows Williams holding a submachine gun in one of the several news clips where he's reporting on firearm and race issues.

It's significant ... considering it's believed Williams' motive for gunning down the journalists, who were his former co-workers at Virginia station WDBJ7, is a personal vendetta over racist comments.

Mark Cuban

Vows to Sue

Those 'Hoverboards' Belong to Me!

8/26/2015 11:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-mark-cuban-hovertrax

Mark Cuban says he and a business partner OWN the design of the 2-wheeled scooter -- often mischaracterized as a "hoverboard" -- and he's vowing to crush all the knock-off companies.

Cuban says 2 weeks ago he partnered up with Shane Chen, who got a patent in 2014 for what he called a "two-wheel, self-balancing vehicle with independently movable foot placement sections."

0826-subasset-swipe-schematics-01

Chen included in his patent application a schematic of the vehicle, which has since been duplicated by numerous companies. Chen actually tried to market his design, which he called, "The Hovertrax."

Chen sued one of the alleged knock-off companies -- IO HAWK -- in June, but now with Cuban's firepower, the duo plans to go after all of the copycats.   

We've learned Cuban has fired off a bunch of cease and desist letters to the various companies, demanding they stop production ... or else.

The boards have blown up after a bunch of celebs, including Justin  Bieber, Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa, have been out and about on the device.

Dee Snider

Giving Donald Trump a Freebie

... On Twisted Anthem

8/26/2015 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider says he's totally cool with Donald Trump using "We're Not Going To Take It” as his campaign song ... but don't assume that means he's also giving him a vote. 

Snider told our photog in Bev Hills why the Twisted hit song is perfect for Trump, and in a word .. it's all about rebellion. But watch ... Dee thinks there's another candidate who should be jumping on the Twisted Sister bandwagon, and yes ... he can get it for free too.

As for who he's backing at the polls -- Dee sounds undecided.

Bonus: Snider gives us his take on Deez Nuts. That guy always wants to rock!

Josh Duggar

Checks Into Rehab

breaking news

0826-josh-duggar-instagram-01Josh Duggar checked into a rehab facility yesterday in the wake of his confession he was using the Ashley Madison website to cheat on his wife.

The Duggar family says it's a "long-term treatment center" ... but does not say what kind of treatment he's getting. While Josh's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have rarely admonished him ... they're directly ripping him now, saying ... "His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear."

They added Josh's wife, Anna, is also getting counseling for her "heart and future" -- and they're praying Josh comes to "complete repentance and sincere change."
