'The Voice' Winner Craig Wayne Boyd

Snubs Fans Hard

12/18/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Craig Wayne Boyd
may have just won "The Voice," but he wouldn't even be a finalist in "The Brain," because he almost immediately disrespected the fans who will determine his long-term success. 

Boyd was leaving an NYC office Building Wednesday ... when he squeezed in an autograph and a mid-stride selfie, and then blazed past the other fans.

The little people know the game, and warned the singer he's starting off on the wrong foot.

"The Voice" is a really good show. Now name one of the past winners.

Involving Drugs and Shootings

12/17/2014 11:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0828-bobby-shmurda-tmz-01Rapper Bobby Shmurda was arrested Tuesday night during a sting involving multiple shootings and drug trafficking ... TMZ has confirmed.

The indictment is sealed and the specific charges have not been disclosed, but we know it's part of a long-term investigation conducted by the NYPD and a special narcotics prosecutor.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Shmurda was under surveillance by police and was arrested while he sat in a car outside a NYC recording studio.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday. 

Shumurda was arrested in October for smoking a joint with two friends while double parked on a Brooklyn street ... and in June for possession of a weapon.

Soap Star Crystal Hunt

I Cut a Woman's Face

And it Only Cost Me $3,600!

12/18/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1217-crystal-hunt-INSTAGRAM-01Soap star Crystal Hunt destroys faces and dreams according to the woman she attacked this year ... now she's paying out ... but it seems like a drop in the bucket.

The "One Life to Live" actress went to town on Elizabeth Nam during a bar brawl, cracking a bar glass on her face, requiring doctors, plastic surgeons and even a shrink.  

You'd think the bills, along with her pain and suffering, would be in the tens of thousands of dollars.

But a criminal court judge just ordered Crystal to pay a measly $3,600 to Elizabeth in restitution. It's unclear why the amount is so low.

Crystal has pled no contest to assault, and has been placed on 3 years probation and ordered to perform 45 days of community labor.

Sounds like Elizabeth got hit ... and then slapped in the face. But Elizabeth can still file a civil suit.

Crystal's attorney Shepard Kopp tells TMZ that "nothing from any doctor indicates she will require plastic surgery. In fact, the judge on the case inspected Nam's face close up at the sentencing hearing and could barely see any sign of injury. Nam has also admitted to a private investigator that she believes Crystal was only trying to throw water at her and that the glass slipped out of her hand."

'Married At First Sight' Lawsuit

Till Theft Of My Idea

Do Us Part

EXCLUSIVE

Married At First Sight Lawsuit
A&E
 doesn’t think the idea of a marriage reality game show is sacred … at least that's the allegation in a new lawsuit.

Yaina Williams says she's the mastermind behind “Married at First Sight” -- a show that follows six couples that get hitched the moment they meet.

Williams claims she uploaded her treatment to a site called the TV Writers Vault back in 2011 and later found out an exec at Lifetime -- owned by A&E Networks -- downloaded it a year later.

She says the next thing she knew ... promos for MAFS were running on the network and she flipped out.

Williams says the the show is so similar to her treatment ... they even share the same tagline, "Can Love Happen at First Sight." And she says the use of experts, online voting and a 6-month couples check-up were all copied.

She wants a judge to order the network to stop airing the show. And she also wants money.

Calls to A&E have not been returned.

Rob Lowe

If Sony Ran WWII

Hitler Would Have Won

1217-rob-lowe-tmz-02
Rob Lowe
just blasted Sony, calling the movie company a spineless sellout and comparing it to the famous British Prime Minister who caved in to Hitler.

Lowe reacted to Sony's decision to pull "The Interview," saying, "Saw @Sethrogen at JFK. Both of us have never seen or heard of anything like this. Hollywood has done Neville Chamberlain proud today."

Chamberlain famously conceded Czechoslovakia to the Nazis in 1938. His policy of appeasement became synonymous with cowardice.   

So far no word from Seth Rogen on whether he embraces Rob's statement.

Jimmy Kimmel tweeted, "An un-American act of cowardice that validates terrorist actions and sets a terrifying precedent."

And Newt Gingrich got into the act, tweeting "@RobLowe, No one should kid themselves. With the Sony collapse America has lost its first cyberwar.  This is a very very dangerous precedent."

To which Rob retweeted "It wasn't the hackers who won, it was the terrorists and almost certainly the North Korean dictatorship, this was an act of war."

Michael Moore just fired his own salvo saying, "Dear Sony Hackers: now that u run Hollywood, I'd also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers."

Newt Gingrich

Sony Hacking Is An Act of War ...

Let's Hunt Them Down

12/17/2014 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

121714_newt_gingrich_launch_v3Newt Gingrich wants President Obama to treat the Sony hackers just like Osama Bin Laden -- by tracking them down and getting revenge for what he calls America's first defeat in a cyber war.

We talked to the former Speaker of the House in NYC ... right after Sony announced it was pulling "The Interview" from theaters and he did not try to hide his anger over the hack.

Gingrich says we've now opened the door for foreign terrorists to control American media. As he puts it ... "If they [the Sony hackers] can pull it off, do the Iranians come next?"

Watch the video ... Newt does suggest a plan for Sony to save face and stick it to the hackers.

Sony

Pulls the Plug on 'The Interview'

1216-sony-the-interview-posters-4update_graphic_red_bar3:15 PM PT -- U.S. investigators have determined the Sony hackers were working with, or for, North Korea ... according to CNN.
update_grey_gray_barSony
has pulled the plug on the XMAS release of "The Interview," after a number of theater chains bailed.

TMZ broke the story Thursday morning ... Sony execs felt their out was if distributors yanked the film because of safety concerns. That would give Sony an out without directly bending to the hackers.

Sony just released a statement, saying, "In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release."

The statement goes on, saying, "We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public."

The execs are underscoring the distinction between pulling the film because of the distributors rather than out of fear, saying, "We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome."

Stephen Collins

Victim Says Apology NOT Accepted

12/17/2014 1:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1217_stephen_collins_tmz
The woman who was just 10 when Stephen Collins molested her and placed her hand on his penis says she's not buying his belated apology.

The woman -- now in her 50s -- is telling family members, "Stephen is minimizing the incident. It was not just a spontaneous touching ... that aggression resulted in him ejaculating."   

She also scoffs at Collins decision not to apologize to her and another one of his victims, saying, "His assertion that he wanted to avoid reopening an old wound seems nonsensical to me."

She doesn't believe there are only 3 victims -- the ones he confessed to on audio.   

The woman has filed a police report with the NYPD and an investigation is underway, but we're told any case would be rejected because of the statute of limitations.

She clearly wants more than a mea culpa, asking, "Why isn't he donating any disposable income, beyond what he needs to survive, to a child-abuse charity?"  And she says, "Maybe he should at least try apologizing to his victims."

Bryan Singer Accuser

Indicted For Fraud

12/17/2014 11:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1217-michael-egan-tmz-01
Michael Egan -- the man who accused "X-Men" director, Bryan Singer, and mega producer Garth Ancier of repeatedly sexually assaulting him when he was 15 years old -- has been criminally indicted for securities and wire fraud. 

Egan made a spectacle of his allegations by holding a news conference in which he described in lurid detail what he claimed to be an organized sex ring at various pool parties.

Egan abruptly withdrew his lawsuits after his case began crumbling. The feds indicted Egan Thursday for allegedly defrauding investors by promising to invest money in Halloween-themed ventures, but instead pocketing the cash to pay for personal expenses.

According to the indictment Egan lied about owning parts of Vegas hotels and casinos and knowing the CEO of a major bank. He also allegedly duped an attorney into telling his investors that he had $13 million in assets when in reality he had less then $11K to his name.

If convicted he could face up to 20 years in prison and $5 million dollars in fines.
