'The Hangover's' Dr. Ken Jeong

He Should Be Ashamed ...

For Fat-Shaming

9/9/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


6:54 AM PT -- Ken just tweeted TMZ, "We cut that scene from the pilot months ago, I promise you that scene will not air on the pilot." ABC also told us the scene was cut from the show, but it is still airing in the promos.


ABC's new "Dr. Ken" is an affront to plus-sized viewers and must be stopped ... so demands one of the leading obesity awareness groups in the country.

The Obesity Action Coalition has contacted ABC, expressing outrage over snarky comments made by Dr. Ken Jeong from "The Hangover" fame.

Check out the preview clip for the show. The obesity group says jokes like these cause overweight people to sink into deep depression.

The group wants ABC to scrub all fat-shaming jokes from the show, which airs next month.

A rep for ABC tells TMZ even though the scene is still running in previews, it has been cut from the episode set to air.




The Flesh of My Flesh Betrayed Me

9/9/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908-dmx-son-TMZ-TWITTER-01DMX is indignant and hurt over what he considers supreme betrayal by his own son, who is selling the rapper's platinum records while he sits in jail. 

X's son Xavier wants to jump-start his own music career with cash, and the cash cow was laying right in his closet. DMX lived with Xavier and his mom until 2007, when the woman threw X out. He left lots of stuff behind, including the platinum records.

0908-dmx-recod-plaque-selling-EBAY-01Xavier put precious platinums for the albums "And Then There Was X" and "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood" on eBay for a total of $3,000.

X is livid, telling us it's his stuff and not Xavier's. What's more, DMX says it shows supreme ingratitude ... he says he took his baby mama out of the projects and got her a house next to Martha Stewart's.

Blood of My Blood just got real.


50 Cent Sued

I'll Show You Who Has the Power

9/9/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details



11:00 AM PST: New York Times best selling author Nikki Turner tells TMZ ... "I would like to set the record straight that the news that's circulating in regard to "Power," 50 Cent and myself is completely false.

"I never showed 50 Cent any manuscripts but my own which is "Death Before Dishonor" and in no way related to 50 Cent's television series, "Power." Please don't believe the lie that's being told, as it's completely false."


50 Cent has another creditor -- aka "Plaintiff" who is suing the rapper for brashly stealing his show idea.

Larry Johnson claims he wrote a manuscript, "Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid," and in 2005, sent it to Nikki Turner, who works for 50 at G-Unit Books. He says the book was eventually published elsewhere, but believes Nikki showed the manuscript to 50.

Johnson claims much to his horror, in 2014 Starz debuted "Power," Fiddy's show about a drug dealer who's trying to go legit. 

Johnson says it's a carbon copy of his manuscript. In his book, the primary character has a goatee ... ditto "Ghost" in "Power." In fact, Johnson says he even uses the nickname "Ghost" as his pen name.

And Johnson says in his manuscript the main character's best friend has a short fuse, just like Tommy in "Power."

In Johnson's manuscript the main character owns the hottest nightclub in Atlanta. In "Power," Ghost has the hottest club in NYC.

Johnson is looking for $200 million to make things right.

Stephen Colbert

Celebs and Pols Flock

To 'Late Show' Premiere

9/8/2015 5:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908_late_show_stephen_colbert_arrivals_launchStephen Colbert promised he'd mix entertainment with politics, and he delivered on opening night.

"The Late Show" is in the can -- at least the first one -- and no less a star than George Clooney was on the sofa.  

And sofas can make for strange bedfellows, because Clooney shared a cushion with Jeb Bush.

CBS honcho Les Moonves and wife Julie Chen were front and center.

No pressure.

James Woods

Twitter Foe Says

Actor Played Coke Card First

9/8/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908-james-woods-tmz-02James Woods can dish it out but can't take it ... is what the guy he's suing for defamation is now saying.

Woods is suing a guy who went after him on Twitter, calling the actor a cocaine addict. Woods wants $10 million.

But now the guy -- who has not been named but is only ID'd by his Twitter handle -- fired back in legal docs, Woods is "like a bully who can dish it out but can't take it."

The guy notes Woods has used Twitter to call people "clown" and "scum." He says Woods has fantasized about killing a man over an offensive shirt, portrayed immigrants as "tattooed thugs" and called Al Sharpton "a disgusting pig."  

And the guy says when people disagree with Woods on Twitter, he says they must be on crack cocaine. Woods once tweeted an Obama supporter, "Well, put down your crack pipe, and re-read my timelines."

The man wants a judge to dismiss Woods' lawsuit

How Dare Kim Davis and Huckabee

Use 'Eye of the Tiger'

9/8/2015 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0908-sub-kim-davis-facebook-01Survivor frontman Frankie Sullivan is outraged Mike Huckabee carted out the freshly-freed Rowan County clerk Kim Davis to their song, "Eye of the Tiger," and we've learned the group is now considering a lawsuit.

A sobbing Davis appeared in Grayson, Kentucky, arm-in-arm with Huckabee, as the song roared through the loud speakers.

The group is hedging on its plan of attack, but the band's rep tells us they are determined to protect the integrity of their music.

Huckabee obviously didn't hear about the whole "Rockin' in a Free World" thing.

Porn Star Jesse Jane


... On the Vegas Strip!

9/8/2015 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is not the way you typically see porn legend Jesse Jane on her back -- she got so blasted in Las Vegas, she fell unconscious on a sidewalk in the middle of the day. 

According to witnesses, 35-year-old Jesse was with a small group of friends on Tuesday when she went down across the street from Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino ... shortly after 1 PM. 

You can tell from the video, Jesse is completely unresponsive. In other words ... her fun day in Vegas just took a turn for the worse. MUCH worse. We're told her friends eventually stopped trying to wake her up, and just carried her away.

We've got a call in to her rep to see if she's okay.

Chris Brown

Gays Didn't Scare Me From Show

... There Was No Show!

Exclusive Details

0908-chris-brown-atlanta-gay-pride-TMZ-01Chris Brown claims he never cancelled a show during ATL Black Gay Pride Weekend ... because he was never scheduled to perform in the first place, but the event promoter claims otherwise.

CB's reps tell TMZ ... Brown was in Atlanta for his "One Hell of a Nite" tour last weekend ... in a totally different venue from the Pride event, which was organized by Traxx Girls, a lesbian owned and operated entertainment company.

Traxx claims it paid Brown to perform for the 4,000 women at the Georgia Freight Depot -- and when he no-showed ... Fetty Wap stepped in at the last minute. 

Brown's people say the event promoter's story is completely fabricated ... claiming Traxx just slapped Breezy's name on posters and flyers to drum up interest in the show, and now it's just trying to save face with customers. 

Traxx reps won't say how much cash they paid Brown ... but they are considering legal action to recover the money.


Nikki Mudarris

Showering Strippers ...

'Cause It's All in the Family

9/8/2015 10:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This what "just another day at the office" looks like for Nikki Mudarris ... so, yeah ... your office sucks compared to hers.

The "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" hottie hit up Ace of Diamonds LA on Monday night to spray down strippers with stacks of the Federal Reserve's finest.

Nikki and her family famously own several strip clubs -- and, in fact, she even brought her mom with her to check out the action last night.

Research. Not as boring as it sounds ... for some people.
