Gwyneth Paltrow Accused by NASA Of Selling Fraudulent 'Wellness Stickers'

6/25/2017 7:22 AM PDT

Gwyneth Paltrow is being called out by NASA for scamming her Goop customers with "wellness stickers."

Go to the Goop website and you'll find a pitch for "a crystalline, carbonized radio-frequency material" made from spacesuits.  Gwyneth claims the stickers will "fill in the deficiencies in your reserves, creating a calming effect, smoothing out both physical tension and anxiety."

BS, says former NASA honcho Mark Shelhamer, who says, "Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn't even hold up."  Shelhamer told Gizmodo, "If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed.  What a load of BS this is."

And it gets worse ... in the original pitch on Goop, it says the materials were made from NASA issues, but NASA says it's just not true.  The representation has been removed from Goop.

BTW ... the stickers go for $120 for a set of 24.

Apparently P.T. Barnum was right. 

DJ Self Denies He Set Safaree Up To Get a Meek MIll Beatdown

6/25/2017 7:09 AM PDT

DJ Self is denying the buzz that he set Safaree Samuels up when Safaree was attacked Friday by Meek Mill's crew.

DJ now says he's speaking out to protect his rep, saying, "I rock with both of them and do not like to get in between people's beef."  He goes on, "If I do, I like to squash it as opposed to provide it."

He also says ambushing Safaree was impossible because he didn't know either Safaree or Meek would be there ... "No way no how I could ever line somebody up or set somebody up."

He says he was actually trying to "mediate" the situation, and claims that's clear from the video.

'All Eyez On Me' Singleton's Early Script With Tupac Prison Rape Scene

6/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"All Eyez On Me" filmmakers and famed director John Singleton are beefing over the version of the movie Singleton wanted to make -- and now we have the script at the center of the feud.  

TMZ obtained several pages from a 2014 draft written by Singleton, and it includes a scene where prison guards lock Tupac in the library, and turn the other way while other inmates assault him. When you read it ... there's a clear insinuation Tupac gets raped.

'Eyez' producer L.T. Hutton referred to this scene while he was on "The Breakfast Club," but fans were hesitant to believe it. For his part, Singleton has trashed 'Eyez,' and refused to see it because he "knows they f**ked it up."

The script, labeled "REVISION EIGHT," also has a scene where Tupac watches his mother, Afeni, having "adult fun" with a man and another woman.

We contacted the film's producers, Morgan Creek, to authenticate the script. Marketing EVP Greg Mielcarz told us it's "one of several versions penned by Mr Singleton while he was working with Morgan Creek.”

Sources connected to Singleton tell us the script was an early draft, but everything he wrote was approved by Tupac's mother. Singleton's said in the past he felt Morgan Creek disrespected Afeni, and that's why he dropped out of the project.

Lionel Richie Secret 'American Idol' Meeting It IS Me You're Looking For

6/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lionel Richie secretly met with "American Idol" producers this week and the subject was joining the show ... production sources tell TMZ.

We're told 'A.I.' execs had a sit-down with the legendary singer/producer for 2 hours, and they loved him. Our sources say 'A.I.' honchos now think he'd be a great fit for the show ... they like his "vibe."

It's interesting. We're told execs view him as a "nice judge." That seems to be Katy Perry's M.O. as well. So the third judge -- whom producers have not identified -- will be critical. It's unclear if they want another Simon, or if they're going for warm and fuzzy all 'round.

We're told producers will not negotiate with Richie until Ryan Seacrest's hosting deal is done. We broke the story, Seacrest has agreed to the money -- somewhere between $10M and $15M -- but he wants an executive producer title and 'A.I.' honchos are resisting.

Blanket Jackson I'm Not a Little Kid Anymore And I Can Kick Your Ass!!!

6/25/2017 7:11 AM PDT

Michael Jackson's youngest son isn't a little kid anymore ... and he's armed and dangerous.

Blanket Jackson is now 15, and he's a black belt in Karate. He was leaving an L.A. martial arts studio Saturday strutting his stuff.

FYI ... a black belt with a white stripe is the Master Black Belt designation in karate.

It's pretty amazing ... all 3 of Michael's kids have emerged from the shadows and found their path.

Short story ... Blanket's still not old enough to drive, but he moves fast.

Emilio Estevez Gun & Ammo Stolen During Car Break-In

6/25/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Emilio Estevez is way past playing Billy the Kid ... especially now that cops tell us his gun was stolen.

Law enforcement sources say the incident went down back in May as the 'Mighty Ducks' and "Young Guns" star was staying at the Oceana hotel in Santa Monica.

We're told he parked his car with the valet ...and 2 days later got back in his car only to find his Glock and ammo were missing. Our sources say there was no forced entry. It's unclear where the gun and ammo were in the car.

Cops are investigating.

We reached out to Emilio and management at the hotel but neither had a comment.

KC Chiefs Trainer 'On Cloud 9' After Learning He Saved Gay NFL Player's Life

6/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the KC Chiefs trainer who helped save a closeted gay NFL player from killing himself, David Price, tells TMZ Sports he was "elated" to find out he had such a positive impact.

The player is ex-offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan -- who recently came out publicly on Outsports.com after keeping his sexuality a secret during his entire football career.

O'Callaghan -- who played for the Patriots and the Chiefs -- says he was in a dark place toward the end of his career and was on the verge of suicide ... until Price stepped in.

O'Callaghan says Price simply cared enough to talk to him and realized something was wrong -- and convinced him to get help from a team psychologist. That got the ball rolling for O'Callaghan who says he's now in a MUCH healthier mental state and loves life.

We spoke with Price who says he was unaware how important he was to O'Callaghan until he read the Outsports article this week ... but couldn't be more proud of his former player.

"I was just elated, I mean on Cloud 9 that I had that much impact on somebody's life in a positive way."

Price says helping O'Callaghan was a "no brainer" -- and he's confident other people in the league would have done the same thing.

The Game Meek and Safaree Should Fight ... But I'm Staying Out of It

6/24/2017 4:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Game says he's not getting involved in the beef between Nicki Minaj's exes, Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels ... but he's got no problem encouraging them to slug it out.

Game was leaving BET's Celebrity Basketball Game Saturday when we asked him about Safaree getting jumped -- allegedly by Meek's crew -- and he offered a "fair" way for them to solve their differences.

It's pretty straight forward -- and he thinks the 2 grown men can figure it out on their own.

Wonder who he's got in the fight?

Charlamagne tha God Sexual Assault Education's Great ... But Not from Cosby!!!

6/24/2017 2:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlamagne tha God's got no problem with teaching people about sexual assault ... but definitely doesn't think Bill Cosby should be leading the charge.

"The Breakfast Club" host chatted with us at the Mr. C hotel in Beverly Hills Saturday about Cosby wanting to hold seminars to help young people -- especially athletes -- avoid being accused of sexual assault. He's thinks it's a good idea ... except for the Cosby part.

So who should be holding these sex assault chats? Charlamagne thinks the answer's pretty obvious.

Cosby is still facing a retrial in the Andrea Constand case.

DeMario Jackson Free and Clear ... And Partying with Hot Chicks

6/24/2017 12:43 PM PDT

DeMario Jackson's livin' easy now that Warner Bros. cleared him of sexual assault on "Bachelor in Paradise" ... and the handful of hot women with him probably helps too.

DeMario hit up Avenue in L.A. for a night out with several ladies Friday night. He didn't answer any questions ... but his smile said a lot. Questionable t-shirt choice though.

We broke the story ... Warner Bros. concluded their investigation of Jackson's 'BiP' scandal with Corinne Olympios and found no sexual assault occurred. Still, DeMario says he won't return to the show.

Looks like he's got better things going on now anyway.

6/24/2017 6:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels and Meek Mill had an explosive run-in Friday at a BET party when Meek's crew jumped and attacked Safaree, who now wants a violent showdown with Meek.

The 2 ex-BF's of Nicki Minaj showed up at DJ Khaled's pre-BET party at Penthouse in WeHo. It looks like Safaree arrived just before Meek, and just as Meek was getting out of the SUV, 2 guys who we're told were part of Meek's crew opened a can of whup-ass.

Safaree didn't mince words afterwords ... challenging Meek to a fight and a whole lot more.

EXCLUSIVE


Blac Chyna got rear-ended in a traffic collision and was placed in an ambulance ... while the other driver was allegedly detained by cops for a possible DUI.

Chyna was in her white Rolls-Royce in Studio City, CA around 2:30 AM Saturday morning when she got into the car accident. She was checked out by paramedics for about 45 minutes before she was released and picked up by another ride.

We're told LAPD officers detained the other driver and administered some DUI tests ... no word yet if there was an arrest.

Blac Chyna's no stranger to car accident drama ... she was sued last year for letting her friend drive her car that ended up involved in a hit-and-run.
