Justin Bieber Assault Caught on Camera ... Kinda

2/17/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber went from funny to fuming in a hot second Saturday morning ... so says the guy who claims he got clocked.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin's a suspect in an alleged battery that went down at a pre-Grammy party at Serafina restaurant in L.A., after Dean Parker fired up his camera and recorded Justin fake fighting with Kyle Massey.

The video shows a playful Justin who turns angry after someone screams for people to stop shooting video. Parker says Justin lunged for his camera, striking him in the face ... although you don't see the strike on the video. Cops told us it was reported as a headbutt.

It's interesting ... we got this pic of Justin's freshly cut hand as he left the restaurant.

0216-justin-beiber-leaving-serafina-blood-hand-AKMGSI-02Parker does not want Justin prosecuted, although he would like to go a few rounds with him as an undercard in the Soulja Boy/Chris Brown boxing match. Don't do it, Biebs ... Parker's 6'5".

2/17/2017 7:16 AM PST

0217-clinton-mckinnon-facebook-2Expect a Hillary Clinton sighting on 'SNL' this week, or at least Kate McKinnon as Hillary, after they did dinner together in NYC. 

'SNL' superstar McKinnon was spotted doing dinner Wednesday night at Orso ... no doubt having some laughs about the current political environment.

As bad as the election turned out for the real Hillary -- it's been ratings gold for Kate and her castmates.

Who picked up the tab? It better be Lorne Michaels or NBC.

Roman Polanski's Rape Victim Worse Things Happen in Life Set Him Free

2/17/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Samantha Geimer -- the woman raped by Roman Polanski at 13 years old -- says the system did him dirty and she's rooting for him to become a free man again, without spending another day in jail.

TMZ broke the story ... Polanski's lawyer, Harland Braun, is going to court next week in an attempt to unseal secret testimony by Roger Gunson, the prosecutor in the case. Braun believes the testimony will show the judge agreed to a plea deal in which Polanski would serve a month and a half in jail. The judge in the rape case later claimed he never signed off on the deal.

For her part, Geimer is not only forgiving, she seems to think the rape was not a big deal ... and that worse things happen in life.

2/17/2017 6:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss insists she's down for the return of NeNe Leakes on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' ... even if NeNe's already cranking up the drama.

We got Kandi Thursday at LAX where she refused to clap back at NeNe. Remember, she talked some serious trash on anyone who doesn't want her back on the show.

Word is several cast members aren't thrilled about NeNe's season 10 comeback after a nearly 2-year hiatus. Kandi's clearly taking the high road -- for now -- even when it comes to choosing between NeNe and Kim Zolciak.

Lisa Marie Presley Kids in Protective Custody Claims Estranged Hubby Has 'Disturbing Photos'

2/17/2017 6:22 AM PST

0217-lisa-marie-presley-tmz-02Lisa Marie Presley's twin daughters are in protective custody after authorities found "pictures and disturbing videos" on what she says is her estranged husband's computer.

According to new legal docs, the images on the photos and videos were disturbing enough for authorities to take the 8-year-old girls away from both parents. Lisa Marie says, "I have no idea what else may be on those devices and fear that there are more and worse images and evidence in these un-analyzed devices."

Authorities found the images after executing a search warrant on Lisa Marie's home. Sources familiar with the investigation tell us ... it was Lisa Marie who found the images and notified cops.

Lisa Marie, the daughter of Elvis Presley, also says she's broke and living with her daughter, according to docs obtained by Daily Mail.

Sources tell us the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is conducting an investigation and for now the children will remain in protective custody.

EXCLUSIVE

Anyone hoping to see Rosie O'Donnell play Steve Bannon on "Saturday Night Live" better write to their congressman ... Lorne Michaels

We got Rosie leaving Nobu in West Hollywood Thursday night and she told us her uncanny photoshop of Bannon is as far as she'll be taking the role.

Why? Sounds like the idea failed to launch with 'SNL' honchos. We'll always have this ...

Harrison Ford Radio Missteps On Takeoff Before Botched Taxiway Landing

2/17/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford didn't sound like a seasoned pilot of more than 20 years when he stammered through radio calls to the tower ... minutes before his screwed up landing on a taxiway.

TMZ has obtained audio of Harrison's convo with air traffic control as he took off from Santa Monica Airport at 11:49 AM on Feb. 13, and he sounds confused. 

The SMO tower sends him off with his tail number -- "Husky Niner Hotel Uniform" -- and gives him a personal code (squawk) of 0214 ... his identifying code for air traffic control. All good up to that point.

The trouble starts when Harrison radios back saying he's in a helicopter. He stutters a few times trying to correct his mistake and then throws out his tail number. The bigger problem is he's still talking to SMO tower, which had already turned over to another tower.

The controller tells Harrison he's on the wrong frequency, and reminds him he should be communicating with the other tower.

Our pilot sources say, on their own, these mistakes would be no big deal. But the FAA might be interested in these because of how his landing went roughly 18 minutes later in Orange County.

Holly Madison Sues Penis Pill Co ... I Never Said Hef Took Your Pills!

2/16/2017 7:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216_holly_madison_hugh_hefner_blackfordge_tmz-2Holly Madison never had Hugh Hefner take any testosterone pills before they got busy -- or at least she never endorsed it -- according to a new lawsuit she's filed.

Madison says she discovered an article online saying she did an interview with Dr. Oz describing how Hef took Blackcore Edge to cure his erectile dysfunction. In her suit, she says that's totally false.

According to the docs, the article made it seem like Holly said, "when Hefner took a pill, 15 minutes later his blood would start pumping! He got stronger, bigger, and lasted as long as an 18 year old." It also made it seem like she said all the girls in the Playboy Mansion benefited from the pills.

Holly not only denies the content of the article, but points out she NEVER did an interview with Dr. Oz. She also says the Blackcore Edge article was made to look like it was affiliated with Men's Health ... but it was a knockoff website.

She's suing the male enhancement company for using her name and image without consent, and for the fake quotes.
