Leslie Jones Homeland Security Hunting Down Hacker

8/25/2016 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0825-leslie-jones-tmzLeslie Jones' hacking situation is so bad the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security has their top cyber-crimes unit on the case ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ reported ... the FBI was accessing the case Wednesday after hackers posted nude pics of the 'SNL' star on her website, along with her passport, driver's license and other sensitive info.

We've learned the case is now with Homeland Security for 2 reasons -- it has one of  the most sophisticated cyber-crime unit in the country, and Leslie has history with the Dept. 

One source tells TMZ Leslie had some sort of problem with catfishing in the past, and Homeland Security investigated the case. There's some evidence a group from Japan may have been the culprit in the current case.

Leslie has remained silent since her website was hacked Wednesday.

Sarah Jessica Parker Blasts EpiPen She Promoted ... Forces Company's Hand

8/25/2016 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0825-Sarah-jessica-Parker-tmz-03Sarah Jessica Parker's so outraged about the price hike of the EpiPen, she pulled the plug on her relationship with the company ... and painted them into a corner.

Sarah ripped the pharmaceutical company Mylan for increasing the medicine's price by 500% since 2009. Her son has a peanut allergy, and she not only depends on EpiPen, but also was a paid spokesperson. Thursday morning she posted a scathing announcement that she was done working with Mylan. 

It's pretty shocking, 9 years ago an EpiPen reportedly cost $57 -- today a 2-pack goes for around $600.

Mylan felt the heat from Sarah and others -- including Hillary Clinton -- and hours after Sarah's post ... announced it would offer coupons, and take other steps, to help make the meds affordable. For the record, it's blaming health care system flaws for the price increase.

J Lo/Casper Breakup And You Thought UFC 202 Was a Big Fight ...

8/25/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_jennifer_lopez_casper-smart-tmzJennifer Lopez broke up with Casper Smart because he snubbed her by passing on a fancy Hamptons charity event in favor of hanging with his boyz at UFC 202 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the former couple tell us ... J Lo told Casper it was super important for him to accompany her to Ron Perelman's Hamptons fundraiser Saturday night benefiting the Apollo Theater. 

Casper wasn't having it, because he desperately wanted to watch the Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz fight in Vegas with his friends.

0824_Casper_smart_bruce_buffer_kanye_tweetCasper had a great time in Vegas, hanging with Kanye and UFC announcer Bruce Buffer.

J Lo, we're told, was enraged and ended the relationship ... no discussion -- simply, we're done.

Here's the funny thing ... Casper was telling people at the fight he was going to NYC Sunday to meet up with Jennifer, who was there filming a show. He had no idea being a no-show Saturday would end things.

0824_jennifer_lopez_saturady_getty_subOur sources add this ... J Lo and Casper have "broken up" several times before and gotten back together, and they say they would not be surprised at all if it happens again.

J Lo doesn't look like she's too broken up about it at the moment, though ... she was still in New York this morning looking perky as ever.

Kanye West The Stage Is All Mine At VMAs ... Beware

8/25/2016 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-kanye-west-vma-getty-with-swipe-01Kanye West will have free reign over the stage at this weekend's MTV VMAs and show producers are expecting something big ... they just have no idea WHAT it will be. 

A source close to production tells us MTV honchos are giving 'Ye 4 minutes to do with as he pleases. He can rap, sing, dance or even just stay silent ... and we're told show producers are totally clueless which door he'll pick.

You'll remember ... Kanye won last year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the show and took the stage for an 11 minute sermon that included talk of a presidential run in 2020.

There have been rumors he and Taylor Swift might make nice during Sunday's show ... but sources close to Swift say she has no plans to attend.

Chris Rock GF Flaunts Him and a Ring, But ...

8/25/2016 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825-chris-rock-megalyn-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Rock's GF definitely made it look like he's ready to get married again ... to her, but we're told it just ain't so.

Megalyn Echikunwoke and the comedian took a pic where she put her left hand -- and ring finger -- in the spotlight. It was even captioned, "Last night we celebrated new beginnings ... #lovewins." 

She had to know that would spark rumors Rock put a ring on it -- but sources close to the couple tell us they're absolutely NOT engaged.

The photo has since been deleted. We're guessing the new beginning was a reference to Chris finalizing his divorce from Malaak.

Johnny Depp I'll Honor Amber's Charity Pledge and Send the Checks

8/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_johnny_depp_amber_heard_tmzJohnny Depp is heaping praise on Amber Heard for promising to donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity ... and he's so moved he's sending the checks directly to the 2 organizations she personally picked.

Amber announced after striking her settlement she would donate every penny to the ACLU and Children's Hospital of Los Angeles -- $3.5 mil each. We checked with Children's Hospital Tuesday and they had not yet received any of the money.

We've learned both the ACLU and Children's Hospital got checks Wednesday from Johnny, on behalf of Amber. The checks are the first in a number of installments that will eventually total $7 million.

A rep for Johnny tells TMZ, "Following Amber Heard's announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities, Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple installments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard's pledge."

The rep adds, "Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

Everybody happy now?

'Kelly and Michael' Sued I Fell into Their 'Trap'

8/25/2016 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-kelly-michael-getty-02Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan's TV studio was a dark and dangerous place -- and not only because of their feud -- according to an audience member who says she had a trippy and painful experience.

The woman, named Judith, says her January 2014 visit to "Live with Kelly and Michael" included a hard fall on her ass, and she's blaming it on an incompetent employee leading her through a poorly lit area of the studio with cables all over the place. 

She's not specific about exactly how she went down, but in the lawsuit she just filed ... she mentions the words "negligent" and "negligence" dozens of times while describing the scene. She calls it "trap like" conditions.

In the docs, Judith says she suffered severe and permanent injury -- again, short on specifics. She's suing the show, Disney and ABC. Kelly and Michael are not named as defendants, so ... no chance for a reunion on the witness stand.

'Empire' Sued by Juvie Prisoners ... You Blocked Us From School & God

8/25/2016 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825-chris-rock-terrence-howard-empre-jail-scene-FOX-01A couple of kids are trying to take down "Empire" -- or at least take some of the show's money -- for stopping them from getting an education ... behind bars.

The kids are teenage juvenile detention center inmates in Chicago ... and they say their home away from home was upset when Terrence Howard and Chris Rock swooped in last year to shoot scenes for season two's premiere episodes. 

According to them all the kids at Cook Co. Juvenile Temporary Detention Center were put on lockdown -- held in cells and pods -- during nearly 2 weeks of shooting. While in lockdown, they had no access to the rec yard, library, and chapel ... and family visits were interrupted.

The teens say their education was turned upside down too because although teachers were sent to cells and pods ... they say the tutoring was not effective. As they put it, "This was 'school' in name only," and often times "chaotic."

The teen inmates have boned up on TV accounting too -- they point out the "Empire" episodes made a ton of cash ... up to $750k per 30 second commercial, and they want a cut. They've filed the class action suit against FOX, Cook County and the warden.

FOX had no comment on the lawsuit.
