Miss Cleo For Psychic Friends Only ... No Makeup, Mon!

9/23/2016 4:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_miss_cleo-2Miss Cleo's famous image and accent got jacked by a makeup company before her death ... according to her old pals at the Psychic Readers Network

The PRN filed a lawsuit against Benefit Cosmetics for hawking makeup products with the help of Youree Harris, who played Cleo. According to docs, Harris was hired in March 2015, and Benefit created a Cleo doppelganger for its promos. 

PRN says Harris not only acted just like Miss Cleo in the spots, but one of them was titled "Flawless Friends Network" ... an obvious rip-off, they say.

Harris died in July, which was right around the same time Psychic Readers says it found out about Benefit's Miss Cleo-esque campaign.

Ironically, it took more than a year for a network of psychics to figure this out. Still, they want Benefit Cosmetics to kill all the ads and fork over the money they made off the "Cleo" campaign.

EXCLUSIVE

Oprah's connecting the dots between the recent police-involved shootings, and the civil rights movement of the '50s and '60s ... telling us it sometimes feels like not that much has changed.

We got O in D.C., shortly after she made her first trip to the new National Museum of African American History and Culture -- and she said the Emmett Till exhibit hit her hard ... in light of recent events. 

Till was lynched in 1955, his death helped spark the civil rights movement.

She also gave us her 2 cents on people anointing Prez Obama as the greatest black man of all-time. You gotta see if she's on board with that sentiment.

Jim went right at White's estranged husband, Mark Burton, saying ... "Is this the way a 'husband' honors the memory of his 'wife?' The real disease here is greed, shameful greed!"

Burton filed the wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey claiming the actor pressured Cathriona to stay quiet after she contracted Herpes and Gonorrhea from him.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins Dash Cam Talked Himself Into DUI Arrest 'I Gotta Take A Huge S***'

9/23/2016 11:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the dash cam footage from Austin Seferian-Jenkins' DUI arrest -- and he ALMOST got off scot free ... until he started running his drunken mouth.

The ex-Bucs tight end was pulled over for an improper lane change after cutting off a cop -- and moments after the stop, the officer was going to let ASJ off with a warning.

Then Austin started talking ... and slurring ... and the cop quickly realized the 23-year-old was wasted.  

Austin begged the cop to let him go to his QB's house to watch 'American Horror Story' ... but the cop shot that down. 

Once Austin was arrested, he told the cop he needed to take a "huge s***" -- the cop begged him not to do it in his brand new squad car. 

He was booked for DUI and violation of an ignition interlock device restriction -- stemming from a 2013 DUI. The Bucs have since cut him from the team. 

  

Charlotte Shooting Wife Begged Police ... Don't Shoot Him, He Has NO Gun!

9/23/2016 10:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

092316_charlotte_shooting_v3Video has surfaced of the Charlotte PD shooting of Keith Lamont Scott ... whose wife is heard on the footage yelling, "Don't shoot him" in the seconds before officers opened fire. 

Scott's wife, Rakeyia, recorded the video on her phone -- NBC News obtained it -- and the moment four shots are fired is not on camera. His wife repeatedly pleaded with police not to shoot Scott, and you can hear officers yelling, "Put down the gun!"

*** WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE ***

Rakeyia told police her husband did NOT have a gun, and also told Scott he should get out of the car. She told police he had a "TBI." It's been reported Scott was disabled with a brain injury from a motorcycle accident years ago.

Cops have said Scott had a weapon. Charlotte PD points to a social media photo purporting to show a handgun near Scott's feet. Police say they have dash cam video, but won't release it until their investigation is complete.

No gun is apparent in the video, and Scott's family insists he was unarmed.

Brad Pitt He's Fighting for Joint Custody of Kids

9/23/2016 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-brad-pitt-getty-3The battle lines are now drawn ... because TMZ has learned Brad Pitt will fight for joint physical custody of his 6 children.

Sources who have been with Brad since his separation with Angelina Jolie last week tell us ... Brad has made it clear ... he will engage in legal war to stop his estranged wife from getting what she wants -- sole physical custody, giving him only visitation rights.

We're told when Brad answers Jolie's divorce petition, the stage will be set for the central conflict.

Fact is ... judges favor giving joint custody to parents unless there's a showing one of them poses some sort of risk to the kids. As we reported, Jolie maintains Pitt has an anger problem which is exacerbated by weed and alcohol. And, as we reported, Brad lunged at and struck 15-year-old Maddox on the plane ... she says it was intentional but he says it was not.

For now ... they agreed Jolie would have the kids, while the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services investigate the airplane incident

Kanye West doesn't just rant on Twitter, he also makes deals ... as a guy in Toronto found out after 'Ye shocked him by making a purchase.

Brad Pitt A Good Reason to Fly Commercial

9/23/2016 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923-brad-is-single-norweigian-adBrad Pitt's probably a long way from playing the field again, but that didn't stop an airline from using his new single status to hawk cheap flights from London to L.A.

Norwegian airlines took out an ad in the London Evening Standard this week that read "Brad is single" above their remarkably cheap £169 (about $220) one-way ticket price.

Other promos have appeared on the airline's Twitter too.

Can't knock the clever marketing, although there should be some fine print: "Actual Brad Pitt not included."

Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby turned herself in overnight and was booked for first degree manslaughter in the killing of Terence Crutcher.

Shelby was in police custody for less than half an hour -- according to her docs, she was booked at 1:11 AM and released at 1:31 AM ... when she posted $50,000 bond.

In the criminal complaint, the Tulsa D.A. says Shelby's "fear resulted in her unreasonable actions" which led to her shooting Crutcher.

Her lawyer says she fired because Crutcher was not following orders and, she believes, was reaching into his vehicle's window.
