Three 6 Mafia Rapper

Tells Cops ...

I Wanted Coke, Not Meth!!!

4/15/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-churchy-black-mug-WATERMARK-01

Three 6 Mafia rapper Crunchy Black is a man who knows what he wants when it comes to drugs ... but according to cops he isn't too good at getting it. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Oscar winner was roaming the streets of Vegas early Tuesday when he was stopped for walking into an intersection when the "do not cross" light was flashing.

It didn't take long for cops to discover meth.

According to the police report, Crunchy's response was hilariously incriminating. He said, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth." 

For bad measure the 'Three 6' rapper also had 2 warrants for his arrest. He was booked for possession and for providing a phony name. He's still in custody.

Crunchy has other problems. He's still a wanted man in Minnesota after allegedly beating his girlfriend in a hotel room.

A rep for Crunchy Black tells us the rapper wants to move forward with his life and will handle the charges in court. Some advice ... don't move forward when the "don't walk" sign is flashing.

'Union J' Singer Josh Cuthbert

Injured in Serious Car Crash

4/15/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Union J Josh Cuthbert Car Accident British singer Josh Cuthbert from the hit boy band Union J was in a violent car crash that was so bad it could have derailed the band.

We're told the 22-year-old and his model girlfriend, Chloe Lloyd, were cruising around London in his Mercedes Sunday when the driver in front of him slammed on the brakes. Josh couldn't stop in time and plowed into the car.

Josh and Chloe were lucky, escaping with soft tissue injuries to their necks and some bruises. The ride is totaled.

FYI ... drivers are supposed to stay far enough behind the car in front of them so they can stop in time if the other driver pulls a bonehead move.

Union J is currently on a European tour with The Vamps. We're told the accident won't sandbag any of the upcoming shows. But turning's gonna be a bitch.

Joss Whedon Sued

The 'Avengers' Director

Jacked My 'Cabin in the Woods'

4/14/2015 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-joss-whedon-cabin-in-the-woods-TMZ-LIONSGATE-01Joss Whedon, current king of the Marvel universe, is being sued for allegedly stealing the idea for the cult horror smash, "The Cabin in the Woods."

Whedon and "Cabin" co-writer/director Drew Goddard are being sued by a guy named Peter Gallagher (not "The O.C." guy with the eyebrows) who claims he registered a book with the Writers Guild called "The Little White Trip: A Night in the Pines."

Gallagher's book came 5 years before 'Cabin' ... which he claims has several similarities to his work:

-- Five friends (three males, two females), ages 17-22
-- In the book, the girls are named Julie and Dura; in the film, Jules and Dana
-- Each takes place at a cabin in the woods (duh!)
-- Each has a twist where you learn the characters are being manipulated and filmed as players in a real-life horror show (spoiler alert!)

In all, Gallagher says there are 25 similar scenes. 

Gallagher's book is nowhere near a best seller -- but in the suit, he says Whedon might have caught wind of it because Gallagher used to hawk it on sidewalks in Santa Monica, CA. He says Whedon lives in that city. Of course ... so do 92,000 other people. 

Gallagher is seeking damages in excess of $10 million.

EXCLUSIVE

0414-mama-june-billy-sugar-tmz-splashSugar Bear's brother is missing, and Sugar Bear and Mama June are so worried we're told they've filed a missing persons report.

Billy Thompson was last seen 3 days ago in McIntyre, Georgia. He's gone off the radar, not returning phone calls or texts.

0414-sub-swipe-billy-thompson-tmz-01

The last time Billy was seen was Saturday, at Sugar Bear's home where Mama June's daughter Jessica was getting ready to go to prom.

Mama June's people tell TMZ, they're especially worried because he's been going through hard times lately. He's unemployed and unable to find work. He's also having a hard time seeing his kids in the wake of a bad breakup with his baby mama.

Mama June's people say they've gone to the local police department and filed a report, but so far no luck in finding him.

'Daredevil'

Blind Fans Blast Netflix

We Can't See Or Hear the Show!

4/14/2015 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Netflix Daredevil Blind FansBlind fans of the Netflix series "Daredevil" might not be able to see the show, but their voice has sure been heard ... as the company has decided to add an important feature ... so the blind can get the full experience.

The new Marvel series -- about a blind crime-fighting lawyer -- launched without optimization for the vision impaired (it is closed captioned, but that doesn't do blind people any good).

Specifically ... the show didn't have an "audio description" option, which is a second soundtrack that describes on-screen action. A bunch of understandably frustrated fans started a petition to get Netflix to add the feature.

The petition points out Netflix doesn't do this for most of its shows, but "starting with 'Daredevil' would be a great step."

And what do you know ... it worked!  Netflix just announced it was adding the audio description option for "Daredevil" and the same feature will soon be available for its other shows.

Fun fact: "Daredevil" co-star Deborah Ann Woll's real-life BF is blind ... and dressed as Double-D for the show's premiere party. Pretty awesome.

Dennis Quaid

'Meltdown' Video Smells Like a Stunt

4/14/2015 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Something is rotten in Hollywood, and it's that alleged Dennis Quaid "meltdown" video -- because we got him in New York City in full promotional mode ... and more and more this thing's looking like a stunt.  

Quaid was out Tuesday afternoon after leaving a media event for his new scripted drama on Crackle.

The timing of the announcement seems convenient ... coming the day after the video of Dennis ranting -- allegedly on a movie (or TV) set -- goes viral. 

Our photog asked Quaid to tell us the truth about the vid -- and while he said very little ... check out the smile.

For the record, a Crackle spokesperson says they had nothing to do with the viral clip.

Watch our vid of Dennis, then watch the rant again and then tell us ...

Dennis Rodman

BRUTALLY FIRES BIZ MANAGER

'She's A Total Fraud!'

4/14/2015 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-dennis-rodman-tmz-03Dennis Rodman didn't just terminate his ex-business manager -- HE HUMILIATED HER -- saying she's a total failure who LIED about being a Harvard grad and may have stolen from him ... though she calls BS. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... The Worm's lawyer Bradford Cohen just sent a SCATHING letter to Peggy King ... officially terminating her as Rodman's financial lady and demanding she hand over all of her records. 

But the letter gets deeply personal ... here's the point-by-point breakdown:

1) You're fired
2) We think you may have stolen a ton of money from Dennis
3) You were supposed to pay bills for Dennis that went unpaid
4) We think you FAKED your background ... and lied about going to Harvard.

In the letter, Cohen states ... "Although you claim to have a graduate degree from Harvard, it is more like your resume could be a study in fictional writing at Harvard."

Boom.

But we spoke with King who says Rodman is the REAL liar ... claiming she NEVER once touted herself as a Harvard grad.

She also tells TMZ Sports that Dennis is nothing more than an "alcoholic drunk" who's ruining what used to be a "good relationship" for no good reason. 

"The whole letter is crazy and bogus. I've been with him through thick and thin."

REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin

Heard It From My Son ...

Bleep Her Right in the Bleep!

4/14/2015 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Cronin -- lead singer of '80s rock group REO Speedwagon -- heard the words straight from his own son's mouth ... and still couldn't believe it -- but it is one of the funniest celeb kid moments ever.

Cronin was shopping with his wife and kid when he and our photog started riffing about the lyrics from his hit, "Take It On The Run" -- and that's when his son pounced.

The kid upstaged dad by dropping the six-words that have been haunting live TV reporters for a while now -- but his tops 'em all ... mostly because of Kevin's jaw-dropping reaction.

You gotta see it -- he's probably grounded for life, but the total shock and awe on Dad's face might be worth it.

Brian Williams

You Can Trust Me, America

I Have a Puppy!

4/14/2015 8:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414_brian_williams_allison_dog_puppy_splash_launchSuspended NBC newsman Brian Williams did some serious damage control in New York City by strolling with his wife, his daughter Allison, and most importantly ... Allison's adorable new dog!

Williams has been laying very low since NBC took him off the air back in February for lying about being shot at in a helicopter.  

Brian had to know a few paparazzi shots of him snuggling Moxie -- a golden retriever puppy -- would look really good. Especially since ABC's World News Tonight just beat NBC Nightly News for the first time in a long time.

Williams' return is by no means a sure thing, but co-anchoring with Moxie could go a long way.
