Sin City's Frank Miller Sued by Ex-Manager ... Your New Partner Screwed Me, Called Me a 'Bad Jew'

7/19/2017 5:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Graphic novel icon Frank Miller let his conniving producing partner screw his faithful business manager out of more than a million bucks ... according to a new lawsuit.

Mark Lichtman says he worked for Miller for 28 years -- on projects like "Sin City," "300," "The Spirit" and "Sin City 2" -- until "producer" Silenn Thomas came on the scene in 2006. According to docs, Thomas started defaming Lichtman in order to force him out of the picture.

In the suit, Lichtman says his contract entitled him to 10 percent commission from all of Miller's projects, and everything was copacetic until Thomas started calling him incompetent and senile. He says Miller's attorney told him he was fired in August 2014.

Even after that, Lichtman says Thomas sent him nasty emails calling him a "bad jew" for demanding his 10 percent for Miller's projects. Then things got sad in 2016 -- Lichtman says he heard Frank really missed him and wondered where he'd gone ... leading Lichtman to believe Frank never wanted to fire him.

Still, Lichtman's suing Miller and Thomas for more than $1 million.

Sources close to Miller say the lawsuit is suspiciously timed, since Comic Con's going down this weekend. They add there's little merit to these claims.

Sen. John McCain Diagnosed with Brain Cancer

Breaking News

John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

Pathology was performed following McCain's surgery Friday to remove a blood clot, and tests showed the presence of a "primary brain tumor" known as glioblastoma.

The family is now considering treatment options with his Mayo Clinic team of doctors. 

The 80-year-old Senator was resting at home following the removal of the blood clot last week. His absence from Congress led Republicans to defer the vote on the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.

His office did not reveal a prognosis.

R. Kelly Concert Biz Boomin' Despite 'Cult' Allegations

7/19/2017 3:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly's gotta believe there's no such thing as bad publicity now -- he has 14 upcoming shows planned and there's still huge demand for tickets ... amid allegations he's running a "cult."

Kelly's gigs were already scheduled before the scandal broke, but all of them are still scheduled ... starting July 28 in Virginia Beach and running through October 8 in Ontario, Cali. We reached out to all of the venues -- 11 confirmed nothing's changed. In fact, some ... like the Chene Park Amphitheatre in Detroit, told us they've been getting a high volume of calls this week alone and are almost sold out.

Others told us they hadn't even received angry calls from customers over the claims R. Kelly is holding women against their will. 

The only hiccup we've seen to this point is people in Baton Rouge asking for refunds on his August 12 show, but we're told ticket sales remain steady.

Translation: business as usual for R. Kelly.

Jada Pinkett Smith I Was a Drug Dealer Back in My Tupac Days

7/19/2017 1:30 PM PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith was all about the thug life when she first met Tupac Shakur -- maybe more than he was -- because she was the one slinging drugs.

She made the confession Wednesday on "Sway in the Morning" after Sway asked her to clear up the real nature of her relationship with the legendary rapper. He's said they hooked up, but she's always said they were just best friends.

Jada first admitted she "hasn't told the whole story" ... and then dropped the bombshell about her first career.

Beyonce 'Whitewashed' Wax Figure Just Overlit Says Madame Tussauds

7/19/2017 1:02 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Beyonce's controversial new wax figure -- which looks a lot like "White Chicks" Bey -- has the perfect complexion ... when the lights are down low.

That's Madame Tussauds' explanation for the freshly unveiled statue of Beyonce in their NYC museum. It's come under fire because ... well, there are a lot of reasons:

- Fans think she looks more like Lindsay Lohan,
- Or Mariah Carey
- Or Kate Hudson
- Or Maya Rudolph
- Whoever she looks like, she's white as hell 

Madame Tussauds tells TMZ ... "Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures."

That's their story. No word if Beyonce's buying it.

Megan Fox might though ... 'cause that's definitely more Megan than Bey. Right?

Madonna Auction Former Friend Says ... We Had a Deal, You Can't Sue Me!!!

7/19/2017 12:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Madonna had no right to get a restraining order against her former friend who was on the verge of auctioning off a letter Tupac wrote the singer, and the former friend is asking a judge to unblock the sale.

Darlene Lutz -- Madge's former art consultant and friend -- filed docs saying she and Madonna settled a very bitter dispute back in 2004 ... and part of the deal was that Darlene gave Madonna cash and in return Madge agreed never to go after Darlene for anything.

Madonna essentially says Darlene stole the letter, along with other personal items including panties and letters to and about various celebrities.

Lutz says in her new docs, filed by attorney Judd Grossman, that the material wasn't private since Madonna mailed the panties to a former BF. Darlene says, "If Madonna truly wanted privacy, then mailing her lingerie was not the way to go."

As we reported ... Madonna got a judge to block the auction, which has since removed the items from its website.

Darlene wants that order thrown out so auction can go ahead as planned.

O.J. Simpson NOT Busted in Prison 'Choking'

7/19/2017 9:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson was not involved in an illegal beating in prison ... if ya know what we mean.

There's a story circulating that Simpson's potential parole is in jeopardy because he was caught masturbating in his cell at Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada. Juicy plot twist, for sure ... but our law enforcement sources say it never happened.

The official statement from Lovelock says, "It is against Nevada Dept. of Corrections policy to release inmate disciplinary history to the public. It is also against policy to release inaccurate information. No official from our department would have released the information in question."

If you're wondering -- we know you are -- our sources say there's no hard and fast rule against masturbation in the prison, as long as you keep it to yourself. Ya know ... don't make a spectacle of your testicles.

Bottom line: freshly squeezed juice was not served.
