breaking news

0423_Sawyer-Sweeten_getty_2010Sawyer Sweeten -- one of the twins from "Everybody Loves Raymond" -- committed suicide Thursday morning, according to his sister.

19-year-old Sawyer reportedly shot himself while visiting family members in Texas. His older sister Madylin Sweeten -- who was also on 'Raymond' -- confirmed the death to TMZ, saying ... "This morning a terrible family tragedy occurred. We are devastated to report that our beloved brother, son, and friend took his own life."

Sawyer played Geoffrey Barone -- one of Ray Romano's twin boys -- on the series from 1996 to 2005. He not only co-starred with Madylin, but also his real life twin brother Sullivan.

His 20th birthday was just a few weeks away.

Madylin posted on Facebook on Thursday afternoon ... "At this time I would like to encourage everyone to reach out to the ones you love. Let them have no doubt of what they mean to you.”

Mark Wahlberg

Applauds Tom Brady's Obama Snub ...

And Hands Hundo to Homeless Guy!

4/24/2015 12:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Wahlberg always has time to help a brother out -- whether it's Tom Brady, or the homeless guy who gets caught in a swarm of photogs -- and his generosity was on full display in Bev Hills.  

After Mark and his entourage had lunch at E. Baldi on Thursday ... he was making his way to his ride when he handed a C-note to a guy in a wheelchair without missing a beat or making a big deal about it.

It's as smooth and solid a move as we've ever seen a celeb make.

Bonus: Mark sounds off about the QB of his beloved Patriots skipping the team's White House trip. His take -- heartwarming ... and a little cocky. 

Wicked awesome.

Joe Manganiello

Dumps Ballin' Bachelor Pad

Moving in with Sofia?

4/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Manganiello HomeSofia Vergara's fiance, Joe Manganiello, may be ready to have his chick, her infamous eggs and himself all under one roof ... because he's unloading his awesome Sunset Strip pad.

Our real estate sources say Joe moved out to sell his swank 2,500 sq. ft. 4bed/3bath digs. Asking price ... a cool $2 mil, but the big question is whether he's bailing on his oasis -- hot tub and pool included -- to say hola to a place with his woman.

He snagged it for $1.8 MIL back in 2013 ... so it's not like he's gonna make a ton o' cash off the sale. Plus, no one would be shocked if he was in a rush to get in more Sofia time.

But she better have a hot tub.

Tina Knowles' New Hubby

So Tight With Beyonce & Jay Z ...

He's Already Plugging 'Em

4/23/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tina Knowles' hubby, Richard Lawson, is all about his new stepkids Beyonce and Jay Z -- and to prove his loyalty he put in some work for one of their flailing business ventures.

TMZ broke the story ... Richard and Tina tied the knot a couple weeks ago -- and Wednesday in L.A. he said their families are totally bonding already ... partly, he says because he and Tina have been tight for decades.

But you gotta see papa-in-law go into pitch mode when the photog brings up Tidal -- Jay Z's music streaming service. Sales of the app have plummeted, but you'd never know it from Richard's enthusiasm. 

Watch ... someone just guaranteed himself a Jay & Bey Christmas card.

EXCLUSIVE

0423-marc-anthony-home-zillow-01Now that he's finally married (again) Marc Anthony has finally gotten rid of his bachelor pad ... selling his insane L.A. mansion to another rich single guy ... NBA star JaVale McGee

TMZ Sports has learned ... McGee snatched up Anthony's 6,262 square foot party palace in Encino, CA -- a super private, Spanish-style estate -- for $2.25 million. 

The place is perfect for summer bashes -- with a cool bar set up in the backyard, next to a huge pool ... with a cabana, fire pit and it's own private guest suite. 

In total -- 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, with a wine room, state of the art theater ... and super high ceiling ... perfect for its new 7-foot owner. 

Anthony bought the place back in 2013 -- after he had separated from Jennifer Lopez. He has since moved on ... marrying model Shannon de Lima back in November.  As we first reported, Marc and Shannon upgraded to an even MORE EXPENSIVE mansion back in February. 

As for McGee, he's unemployed at the moment -- but the 27-year-old has made more than $30 MILLION during his NBA career.

Adam Sandler Movie

Native American Actors Walk Off ...

Netflix Says They're Missing the Joke

4/23/2015 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Netflix Native Americans Adam Sandler MovieA group of Native American actors quit an Adam Sandler movie because they feel it's insulting and racist ... but Netflix says the outraged actors are missing the whole point of the film. 

The movie is called "The Ridiculous Six" and is being produced just for Netflix. It's described as a spoof on "The Magnificent Seven" ... starring Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.

But the spoofing went too far Wednesday, in the eyes of a dozen actors and actresses who walked off the set. Some of the offending jokes included female characters named Beaver’s Breath and No Bra -- and a scene where an Apache woman urinates outdoors while smoking a peace pipe.   

Netflix is defending the Sandler flick, saying it's all a joke. A Netflix rep tells TMZ, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous." The rep says it's intended to be a satire of Westerns and the stereotypes popularized in the genre. 

The rep adds ... the diverse cast "is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke." 

This wasn't the first day of filming. In fact, Loren Anthony -- one of the pissed actors had previously tweeted how much he was enjoying the project. But after today's walk out he said, "Today work was no bueno, my native women were disrespected and i walked off set."

Louis Tomlinson

Once, Twice ...

Three Times a Player

4/23/2015 2:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Louis Tomlinson Partying WomenOne Direction's Louis Tomlinson is easing back into bachelorhood ... by hooking up with multiple chicks at once -- or so it seemed when a pack of at least 3 went to his London hotel room. 

Tomlinson was partying at Cirque Le Soir Wednesday night ... before the after-party moved to the Soho Hotel. Best part of the rendezvous -- the girls' walk of shame Thursday morning -- although maybe it's more like walk of fame ... when you've raged with a One Direction singer all night?

Tomlinson broke up with GF Eleanor Calder last month after 4 years together.

Everyone mourns in their own way.

EXCLUSIVE

0423-frank-ocean-getty-01It wasn't easy, but Frank Ocean finally got a judge to help him kill off someone very close to him -- Christopher Edwin Breaux ... as in the name Frank was given at birth, but is now ditching.

Frank's request for a legal name change got a judge's stamp of approval today in L.A.

As we previously reported ... Ocean filed legal docs a year ago to make the switch, but a judge put the brakes on the process until Frank cleared up some drivers license issues.

Breaux, born in Long Beach, CA,  was 27. He died of severe anonymity and underappreciation.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Ticket Delay Explained

Pissing Match Over Good Seats

4/23/2015 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0423_Manny-Pacquiao_floyd_mayweather_mgm_TMZThe delay over the sale of the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao tickets was all about GOOD SEATS -- with Manny's team holding up the deal because they felt Floyd's team got the better quality tickets. 

Here's the deal ... sources connected to the negotiation tell TMZ Sports ... the sides had agreed to split 9,600 tickets evenly between Team Manny and Team Floyd for the May 2nd fight.  

Team Manny includes Bob Arum's Top Rank Boxing and HBO. Team Floyd includes Al Hayman's company and CBS.  Each side got 4,800 tickets. 

But the rift, we're told, all had to do with seat location -- with Manny's people claiming Floyd's camp got the better tickets because of Mayweather's relationship with the MGM Grand. 

As one source put it ... "Floyd's camp got more seats in the first few rows, including the front row, and that's a big deal." We're told Manny's camp demanded equality. 

We're told Manny's camp refused to lay down on the issue -- thus delaying the ticket release indefinitely. And Wednesday, with 10 days 'til the fight, CBS honcho Les Moonves stepped in.

Sources say there was an emergency meeting in which Les stepped in and "played Solomon" (a reference to the biblical figure's negotiating expertise) ... and fixed the situation. 

Now, we're told the ticket distribution is equal ... both sides are happy ... and once again, Les is the hero.
