Breaking News

0722-jennifer-lawrence-gabrielle-union-kate-upton-TMZ-02One of the hackers responsible for the wave of celebrity nude pics on the Internet is sitting in a federal prison cell.

Andrew Helton got 6 months behind bars after admitting he hacked into hundreds of email accounts and jacked 161 nude and explicit images from 13 victims. Federal authorities did not specify who Helton's victims were.

Celebs like Gabrielle Union, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Hope Solo were among the victims when the so-called "fappening" went down 2 years ago.

After he gets out of prison, Helton will also serve 2 years of supervised released.

Another hacker, Ryan Collins, was busted back in March and pled guilty in a plea deal with the feds.

Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers Hires MJ Lawyer For Looming Criminal Prosecution

7/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0720-dani-mathers-tom-mesereau-instagram-tmzDani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who took a picture of a naked woman in an L.A. gym -- has hired no less than the famous lawyer who got Michael Jackson acquitted ... and she has reason for worry.

We've learned Mathers hired Tom Mesereau, who not only got MJ off ... he won a murder acquittal for Robert Blake.

TMZ broke the story, the LAPD launched a criminal investigation after the gym where the photo was taken filed a police report. Mathers not only snapped the pic in the locker area, she shamed the woman by writing a snarky caption and posting it on social media.

Our LAPD sources say they are on the hunt for the victim and are working closely with LA Fitness execs, combing over surveillance video and checking member swipes during the time in question to ID the victim. And, we're told, they're close.

Our sources say the LAPD would like to present a criminal case to the L.A. City Attorney but need the cooperation of the victim.

Mathers has been banned from the health club, and good luck finding another one.

Amber Heard Hangin' a Lot with Elon Musk

7/21/2016 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-amber-heard-elon-musk-TMZ-01Amber Heard -- who's in the throes of a divorce with Johnny Depp -- is spending a lot of time with a guy who makes Johnny look like a pauper -- billionaire extraordinaire Elon Musk ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Amber has known the Tesla inventor for several years, but in the last few months they've been spending a lot of time together.  

Just last weekend Amber and her sister were hanging out in Elon's hotel bungalow in Miami.  We're told she had a 1-on-1 dinner at his L.A. house 2 weeks ago. We're told she recently went to Elon's L.A. area office to spend time with him. And we're told he's paid several visits to her home.

No one in Amber's camp is calling it "dating," but we're told the amount of time they spend together has definitely increased.

Elon -- who's worth an estimated $12.7 billion -- is also going through a divorce with Talulah. They married, divorced, remarried and she filed for divorce for a second time in March.

Suge Knight My Little Kid Got the Boot at Jail Entrance

7/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721_suge_knight_tmzSuge Knight is in the middle of a family war ... behind bars.

Suge, who hasn't been allowed to see his family for months, had petitioned the judge in his murder case to restore visitation privileges for his 7 kids and 2 baby mamas.

The judge is allowing Suge's 4 minor kids to visit him at L.A. County Jail, but is not allowing their mothers to accompany them. 

Suge's baby mama, Toi, took their 6-year-old son, Legend, to the jail Thursday to visit him, but it became a classic catch-22. The jailers refused to let Toi in, but then denied Legend access because he wasn't accompanied by an adult. We're told Toi went crazy. And we got video of Legend, who was clearly upset.

We contacted the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept, which runs the jail, and they said the boy's grandparents are authorized visitors and they can escort Legend in to visit his dad.

French Montana I'm Going West Side ... of Manhattan

7/22/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-french-montana-tmz-gettyFrench Montana's ready to drop major cheddar on a new pad really close to his hometown, but far, far away in terms of real estate prices. 

Sources tell us the Bronx-raised rapper went shopping earlier this week as a first-time buyer on Manhattan's West Side. We're told John Lecce, of Batra Real Estate Group, showed him luxury high-rise condos in the $5-10 million range. 

French is considering cribs in the SoHo, Tribeca and West Village neighborhoods. 

Looks like he'll be bicoastal, since he just bought Selena Gomez's old mansion for a little more than $3 mil.

As far as when he'll pull the trigger in NYC, we're told he's in no rush and willing to wait for the right location ... location, location.

Peter Thiel Proud to be Gay, Proud to be Republican

7/21/2016 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel delivered a few lines at the Republican National Convention Thursday that were met with a surprising and even shocking reaction from the crowd.

Thiel is the first openly gay speaker at a Republican convention who addressed LGBT issues. He conceded the party platform was not his vision. In fact, the platform, which among other things seeks to repudiate the right of gays to marry, is considered by many draconian and hostile to the LGBT community.

Nevertheless, when Thiel presented himself to the crowd as a proud gay man, he was received warmly and, arguably, embraced by the crowd.

Jay Mohr Files for Divorce from Nikki Cox

EXCLUSIVE

0721-jay-mohr-nikki-cox-getty-tmz-02Jay Mohr has filed for divorce from Nikki Cox, but we're told it could go the way of Patrick Dempsey.

Mohr filed legal docs Tuesday to end his 9-year-marriage and followed up with an emergency petition Wednesday for full physical custody. In his papers, he claimed Nikki suffers from depression and self-medicates and he worries their 5-year-old son might be at risk if left alone with her.  The doc say the drug problem is "serious" and "ongoing."

The judge said he wanted to hear from both, so set the hearing for next month.

In the meantime, Jay and Nikki told us Thursday, "We are very married. Very in love. Very happy and that's really all there is." Translation ... they're trying to work it out.  

The divorce docs, filed by Jay's lawyers, Samantha Spector and Joseph Koenig, cite irreconcilable differences. There's also a prenup, according to the filing.

Ted Cruz hasn't settled on who's getting his vote, and maybe that's why he told our photog he'll be on a couch in front of a TV watching Donald Trump's acceptance speech.

Our photog got Cruz at the Cleveland airport, beating a hasty retreat after Wednesday night's speech.

We also asked Cruz ... by going back on his word to support the nominee, has he earned the name "Lyin' Ted?"
