Tyra Sanchez Drag Queens Aren't 'AGT' Playthings ... I Was Mocked!

3/29/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former "RuPaul's Drag Race" champ Tyra Sanchez claims "America's Got Talent" pulled a cruel bait and switch, trying to make him something he's not ... Tyra Banks.

Sanchez -- real name James Ross -- tells us 'AGT' producers reached out to him about doing a funny bit with their new host. He says he was into it, but believed he'd appear as HIS character ... Tyra Sanchez. Somewhere along the way he says the deal changed, and they wanted him to be a contestant ... as a Banks impersonator.

He's convinced they were setting him up to be the butt of the joke, but he didn't fall for it ... like many before him have. Ross wants his fellow queens to rise up and refuse to do the show or even watch it.

We reached out to 'AGT' ... so far no word back.

White House Repeat Fence Jumper Served in the Army, Loves Trump

3/29/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-marci-anderson-wahl-tmz-02Marci Wahl -- the woman who's been twice arrested for trying to jump a White House fence -- served in the U.S. Army for more than 8 years ... and she's a big supporter of President Trump.

Army Reserve reps tell TMZ ... Marci served from March 2001 to December 2009 as an electronic missile system repair specialist and had a 2-year stint in Germany. She won a Good Conduct Medal and an Army Achievement Medal.

We've spoken with 3 members of the U.S. Army who say she served in Iraq in Operation Iraqi Freedom II, but the Army tells us they have no record of her serving in Iraq.

Friends who served with Marci tell us she was very well-liked and a good soldier ... which is why many were shocked by the news of her fence jumping. One source said she wasn't very political when he knew her, and another said "something inside her must have snapped."

As we reported, Marci told Secret Service agents she really wants to speak with Donald Trump and she'll try again to get inside The White House. According to some of her online vids, she thinks folks should love the president and that Trump's being too nice.

She's also REALLY into astrology.

Tupac Shakur Lawsuits over Passport, Handwritten Song Lyrics

3/29/2017 6:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329-2pac-gettyTupac Shakur is about to get posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which makes his personal stuff more valuable than ever ... and all that attention has triggered several new lawsuits.

The estate of Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mom, is suing to retrieve the rapper's passport, driver's license, clothing, jewelry, handwritten scripts and lyrics and notebooks. The scripts and lyrics are clearly the most valuable.

The estate is suing Moments in Time, an auction house, as well as 2 individuals who have possession of the items.

According to the lawsuits, filed by celeb attorney Howard King, the defendants bought the items from 3rd parties who had no ownership rights and therefore no right to sell the items.

The suit claims the estate has repeatedly told the defendants they have no right to the items but the demands have been ignored.

Stephen King Sued You Took My Gunslinger to 'The Dark Tower' That'll Cost Ya $500 Mil!!

3/28/2017 6:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-stephen-king-the-dark-tower-TMZ-01Stephen King stole the idea for his main man in "The Dark Tower" series from a famous comic book character also known as a gunslinger ... according to a new suit.

The creator of "The Rook" comics claims King's protagonist, Roland Deschain, is based on his main character, Restin Dane. He says Deschain has striking similarities to Dane other than just their initials -- both are "time-traveling, monster-fighting, quasi-immortal, romantic adventure heroes."

"The Rook" creator also points out King's Deschain dresses like a cowboy despite not being from the Old West -- just like Restin Dane -- and the towers in both books look the same.

0328-the-rook-the-dark-tower-comparison-01

According to the docs ... the Restin Dane character was in more than 5 million comic magazines from 1977-1983 and King admits he read those stories. The first book in King's 'Dark Tower' series was released in 1982.

Translation -- "The Rook" creator thinks it's more than just a coincidence Roland is a lot like Restin, and he wants the King of Horror to fork over $500 million for ripping him off.

The lawsuit is impeccably timed ... teaser footage from the upcoming "Dark Tower" movie, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, was just revealed this week.

3/29/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328_Chloe-Grace-Moretz_tmzChloe Grace Moretz declined a doorstep offering of cookies from a young male admirer ... and reported him to authorities instead.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the "Neighbors 2" star had an uninvited guest roll up to her home on a skateboard with a container full of treats. We're told Chloe was inside but didn't answer. The guy asked a neighbor if this was Chloe's home, and the neighbor started grilling the guy.

Cops say Moretz called the cops and reported the guy, who looked about 18. The cops never got to speak with the guy because he made a hasty retreat.

LAPD's threat management is now on this case.

Manson Family Killer Let Me Out! I'm Mature, Not Brainwashed

3/29/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-main-leslie-van-houten-getty-01Leslie Van Houten deserves parole from her life sentence because she was too immature to understand her savage actions in the Manson family killing spree ... according to new legal docs.

Leslie’s lawyer, Richard Pfeiffer, submitted a 13-page report to convince the parole board to release her. The report includes testimony from psychologist Laurence Steinberg ... who says then 19-year-old Leslie’s immaturity prevented her from exercising self-restraint, controlling her impulses and weighing consequences.

Van Houten was convicted for the stabbing murders of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.

Steinberg adds as Van Houten grew up ... her brain matured and she escaped Charles Manson’s brainwashing. He believes her exemplary prison record proves she has matured and “strongly suggests” she won’t commit further criminal acts.

0328-sub-leslie-van-houten-swipe-ap-01Of course, Van Houten got shot down for parole last year when Governor Jerry Brown nixed the idea. The report will be presented at her next parole hearing, later this year.

Leslie, now 67, was the youngest person ever sentenced to death in California. That was later commuted to life with parole.

Richard Simmons 'Sighting' Sets Off Alarms in the O.C.

3/28/2017 4:12 PM PDT

Richard Simmons? We started getting calls and video of a guy, who sure looks like the former fitness guru at a 24 Hour Fitness in Orange County, CA, but Simmons' rep insists ... it's not him.

This video is being shopped to media outlets as the first sighting of Richard in years. It's become a thing ... blogs devoted to finding the reclusive celeb.

The gym is an hour from Richard's Hollywood Hills home, where he's been self-confined for 3 years. It would be super weird for Richard to venture out that far.

This guy must get stopped a lot.

'Fresh Prince' Reunion Cast Came Together for Their 'Hilary'

EXCLUSIVE

0328-fresh-prince-reunion-instagram-01

Will Smith and the rest of the 'Fresh Prince' cast didn't just reunite to chat about old times, they did it to raise big money for charity ... TMZ has learned.

Karyn Parsons, aka 'Hilary,' tells us the luncheon -- with Tatiana Ali, Alfonso Ribeiro, Will, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell -- went down Monday at Nobu in Malibu. Karyn says her castmates broke bread with a family from England that won a charity auction.

She says the money will support her organization, Sweet Blackberry, ... which makes educational animated shorts about African-American history. Karyn wouldn't say how much the Brits dropped for the all-star meal, but let's face it any meal at Nobu -- WITH Will Smith -- can't come cheap. 

She added it was bittersweet because of the absence of James Avery, who died in 2013.

Pretty cool of the whole gang to donate their time.
