Rapper Becomes Law Firm Pitchman
Make 'Em Say Uhhhh-bject!
9/25/2014 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
You get run over by a tractor? Beaten at the bar? Butchered at the beauty salon? Well Master P will hook you up with the right lawyers.
For some inexplicable reason, the legendary rapper has become the TV pitchman for the law firm of Winton & Hiestand Law Group ... a personal injury firm in Louisville, Kentucky.
Chauncey Hiestand tells TMZ ... he and P became friends after Hurricane Katrina. P is from New Orleans, and lots of people from his hometown moved to Kentucky afterward.
Hiestand says Master P's pitch was a gesture of appreciation.
The spot sounds genuine ... until then end, when P drops his trademark "Uhhh."
It's actually hilarious and somewhat awesome.
Whatcha Gonna Do With 'Racist' Dress Code?
9/25/2014 3:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hulk Hogan says he's not racist ... and neither is his restaurant ... so he's putting the HURT on a controversial dress code at his Tampa eatery ... that appears to target black people.
We talked to Hulk about the sign posted at Hogan's Beach ... barring anyone who wears excessively baggy attire, low-hanging pants, do-rags, bandanas, oversized or excessive jewelry -- all stuff popular with the urban crowd.
Hulk -- who doesn't own the eatery but licenses his name to it -- tells us he called the restaurant's managers personally ... and demanded the sign be taken down -- permanently ... and they agreed.
Hogan says the dress code was modeled after ones used at Las Vegas and Miami pool parties -- He says it was never meant to be racist, but understands some people take it that way ... so he 86'd it.
NBA Star Joel Embiid
NUDE LEAK IS NO BIG DEAL
We've Seen Naked Women Before
9/25/2014 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NBA star Joel Embiid says he doesn't understand why everyone is making such a big deal about the celeb nude hacking scandal -- saying, "I mean we've all seen a woman's body."
The Philadelphia 76ers rookie just tweeted moments ago saying he finally got around to checking out all of the naked photos that were hacked from various celebrities ... and doesn't get the big hoopla.
"Why is everyone always acting crazy when pics are leaked???" Embiid tweeted ... "I mean we've all seen a woman's body."
We get Embiid's point -- that people are too hung up on nudity -- but people are "acting crazy" because their private photos were stolen and made public ... and that sucks.
ENGAGED to Brittany Kerr

Jason Aldean is engaged to former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr ... TMZ has learned.
We're told the country star sealed the deal during the West Coast leg of his current tour.
No word on how he asked ... but it looks like Jason arranged a private tour of the San Diego Zoo Wednesday -- possibly to pop the question.
As we previously reported ... Aldean and his ex-wife split after make-out pics of Jason and Brittany surfaced in 2012.
Aldean has no regrets about how things went down ... recently telling Billboard magazine people need to "get over it."

Come Watch Me Die
9/25/2014 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Columbus Short's got balls -- gotta give him that -- after being publicly AXED from "Scandal" because of his legal troubles -- he's throwing a big party Thursday night to celebrate the show's season premiere.
Short's hosting the bash at an Atlanta club ... where he also plans to debut the single from his self-titled album ... and get this -- the song's called "Gladiator."
Remember ... at the end of last season Short's character, Harrison had a gun pointed to his head and a gunshot was heard. Fade to black.
Then -- a few days later -- Short pretty much wrote his own ending after he was arrested for domestic violence ... and he was 86'd from the show.
We're told ... Columbus and "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes are still tight -- even though she fired him -- and he still wants to support the show ... which is why he's hosting the shindig.
Consider it handled.
At Paris Fashion Week Event (CRAZY VIDEO)
9/25/2014 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian was tackled and almost knocked to the ground in an alarming assault during a Paris Fashion Week event.
Kim, Kanye and Kris Jenner arrived at a fashion show Thursday ... and several hundred people -- including a gaggle of photogs -- were squeezed in to watch them arrive.
As Kim gets out of the car, a guy lunges at her, tackling her legs and tries to pull her to the ground.
You see security jump in, subdue the guy ... and then quickly escort Kim and Kris into the building.
TMZ has learned the attacker may be Vitalii Sediuk -- the Ukrainian prankster who did the same thing to Leo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Will Smith. According to his rep, Sediuk is taking credit for lunging at Kim.
He wasn't arrested on the scene -- but our Kardashian sources say the paparazzi actually turned on Sediuk and held him down while Kim was whisked away.
Hulk Hogan's Restaurant
Don't Dress Like a Black Guy
9/25/2014 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hulk Hogan's got a cool beach restaurant in Florida -- but if you wanna enjoy a "coconut ginger mojito" during a concert at the eatery ... you better not show up dressing like an urban stereotype.
Check out the dress code outside Hogan's Beach in Tampa -- which essentially bars people who wear clothes popular with the black community.
The Hulk no-no's include:
-- No oversized t-shirts extending past the mid thigh
-- No excessively baggy attire
-- No low hanging pants or shorts
-- No hats facing sideways or back facing
-- No oversized or excessive jewelry
-- No camouflage (unless with military ID)
-- No workout clothing (including track suits, jump suits, sweat pants or basketball shorts)
-- No high-top sneakers
And get this ... if you plan to wear a do-rag or a bandana, FORGET ABOUT GETTING IN ... uhhh, Hulk's wearing one ON THE FRIGGIN' SIGN!!!!
We spoke with an employee at the restaurant, who said you can wear just about anything for lunch or dinner, but the dress code is strictly enforced during concert events. When we asked him about wearing oversized jewelry, he said, "I don't want to sound stereotypical ..." and then he trailed off.
We spoke with Hulk, who says he licenses his name to the restaurant but didn't know about the dress code and he's looking into it right now.
By the way, check out the promotional video for the restaurant -- no black people. However, there is a white dude wearing the FORBIDDEN camouflage shorts.
No word if he had military ID.

Lindsay Lohan made 'em laugh during her first performance of David Mamet's legendary play "Speed-the-Plow" in London ... problem is, it wasn't supposed to be funny.
Lohan was a disaster ... unprepared, nervous and flubbing lines left and right. According to several accounts ... people backstage were feeding Lindsay her lines. Even more obvious ... she carried a prop book with her dialogue and repeatedly consulted it.
The theater was reportedly only half full.
Lohan was described as looking pale and nervous ... a look she usually reserves for the judge.

What Will Joe Say?

With her "True Blood" hunk boyfriend Joe Manganiello nowhere in sight, Sofia Vergara hung out Wednesday afternoon in New York City with her former fiancé, Nick Loeb.
Loeb and Vergara called off their two-year engagement back in May. Vergara began dating Manganiello just two months later.
Sofia and Nick are reportedly still friends ... and that's it.
Jealousy ... such a meaningless emotion -- well, sometimes.
