Mama June's New Man

Kicked Off Facebook

No Child Molesters Allowed

11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mark McDaniel Facebook Profile DeletedMama June's boyfriend has been booted from Facebook ... because he's a child molester. 

Mark McDaniel was active on Facebook until Tuesday ... when his profile was yanked from the site. Turns out Facebook has a policy of rejecting sex offenders, but apparently they didn't know until recently ... presumably after we posted the story that McDaniel did time for molesting Mama June's child.

McDaniel's profile pic showed him cradling his granddaughter. There were various "welcome home" posts ... presumably from friends who found out he had been released from prison.

It's interesting ... June was absent from McDaniel's profile page, and we're guessing it's because they both knew it was wrong for her to hook up with him after he abused Anna.

Hayden Panettiere

I've Got a Klitschko

in My Giant Oven

11/18/2014 9:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118_hayden_pregnant_photo_launchIf there was any doubt Hayden Panettiere was carrying a Klitschko baby ... just take a look.

The "Nashville" star was hanging poolside in Hawaii this weekend. The proportions of the 5'0" actress seem out of whack ... we're guessing that's because her fiance Wladimir Klitschko is a beast ... 6'6" and weighing in at 243 lbs.

1118-wladimir-hayden-fameflynet-height-differencesNo word on whether she'll attempt a natural childbirth, and the reality is the kid may not be all that big ... but then again, the baby girl could be gargantuan.

Good luck Hayden!

Chris Brown

Slaps Tupac Lyrics

On $500K Lambo!!

11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chris Brown Paints Car TupacChris Brown knows how to suck all the value out of a perfectly good $500,000 Lamborghini ... hire someone to slap lyrics from a Tupac song all over the formerly sexy ride.

Chris' inspiration for his latest paint job was Tupac's "Lord Knows" -- and it took artist Huero 16 hours to hand paint the song lyrics on the car's roof and hood.

Give CB credit for one thing -- he made sure Huero didn't use any f-words or n-words in the final product ... y'know, to keep it kid friendly. That's classy ... gangsta style.

Of course, you remember some of Chris' previous lambo work -- the multi-colored Hot Wheels version, the powder blue, and the one covered in fingerprint residue.

Ferruccio Lamborghini ... continuously rolling in his grave since Breezy learned to drive.

Mama June

Mark McDaniel May Not

Be a Molester Anymore

11/18/2014 10:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

111814_mama_june_dr_phil_launch
Mama June lives in a perpetual state of denial, telling Dr. Phil her boyfriend Mark McDaniel may have been rehabilitated and therefore not a danger to children.

It's pretty incredible ... June appeared on Phil's show Monday and pooh-poohed his question about her choice in men, saying McDaniel had no issues when she met him in 2000.

She also trashes her own daughter who was forced to perform oral sex on her boyfriend, saying Anna tends to lie.

You gotta see it to not believe it.

Justin Bieber

I'm on a Mission ...

Like An Actual Religious Mission

11/18/2014 8:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-justin-bieber-praying-01
Justin Bieber
 is on a self-proclaimed "mission" to learn how to spread the word of God.

Bieber is ensconced in Rancho Mirage outside Palm Springs, where he will spend 2 weeks with a pastor. This Biebs has flirted with religion in the past ... as TMZ first reported he was baptized this past summer in a NYC bathtub.

Bieber has exiled himself from friends, alcohol, weed and everything else that doesn't involve the good Lord.   

It's unclear if Biebs will take the next step and become a full-blown proselytizer.

Check out this pic we got of Bieber Monday in Rancho Mirage ... the book by his side is "Occupy All Streets," which teaches how to spread the word and resist bad temptations.

See you in two weeks, Lil Twist!

Michael Johns

Enlarged Heart Killed Him

11/18/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Johns Autopsy"American Idol" singer Michael Johns died from an enlarged heart, but a "fatty liver" contributed to his death ... this according to the Coroner's report.

The 35-year-old singer died suddenly Aug. 1 after his leg became swollen and bruised ... reportedly from a sprained ankle. Family sources claimed the injury had triggered a blood clot, but his best friend claimed the singer drank himself to death.

The Orange County Coroner's report concludes Johns died of natural causes -- the result of a disease called dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition that inhibits the flow of blood to the body. The disease caused his heart to enlarge.

As for the "fatty liver" ... it can be caused by excessive alcohol intake, but there are other causes as well. Law enforcement told us ... Johns often drank to excess and did so hours before he died.

Hollywood Street Fight

Dude, Your Foot is DANGLING!!

Breaking Bones

111814_dba_fight_launch_v2
Monday night's alright for fighting too -- unless you're the dude whose foot was damn near torn from his body in a brutal West Hollywood street brawl last night.

The fight went down outside DBA Nightclub around 2 AM ... when no fewer than 3 guys surrounded another guy in the middle of Santa Monica Boulevard and unleashed holy hell -- repeatedly kicking and punching the victim.

When he ends up on all fours ... things really get gruesome, because he gets rolled ... and his ankle fully SNAPS IN TWO!!! It's unclear what started the fight --- but it's obvious from the video what ends it. 

Warning to Joe Theismann: You probably don't want to see this.

Dwight Howard

Now Under Criminal Investigation

For Child Abuse

11/18/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117_Dwight-Howard_tmz3Dwight Howard is under criminal investigation for child abuse ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned the Cobb County PD in Georgia now has an active criminal investigation into allegations he beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Dept. of Children and Families in Florida (DCF) determined there wasn't enough evidence of child abuse to go forward, but it turns out the incident occurred in Georgia. Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn't know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.

Law enforcement tells us ... Georgia cops asked Florida for the file, but the DCF dragged its feet and did not cooperate. So it turned into a cold case until Monday, after Cobb County detectives saw the TMZ Sports story summarizing a doctor's findings that Howard committed child abuse.

A Georgia law enforcement source tells TMZ ... "People who were not so forthcoming before today [Monday] have been." The source adds detectives did several one-on-one interviews Monday and say the case "has now been raised to top of the list."

Howard's attorney tells TMZ ... Howard's baby mama Royce Reed is "shopping her baseless allegations" to Georgia authorities even though Florida's Dept. of Children and Families found her claims had "no merit."

For the record ... DCF found the allegations credible, but concluded they did not meet the standard of proof required for formal action.

The attorney says he's confident Georgia will reach the same conclusion because "The truth is on our side."

Justin Bieber

Sniff My Pillow ... For $279K!

11/18/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117_justin_bieber_grandparents_house_ontario_launchIf you wanna lay your head on Justin Bieber's pillow ... or even frolic in his bed ... all you have to do is pony up $279K -- and you can own Justin's boyhood bedroom.

Justin's grandparents are selling their 3-bedroom home in Stratford, Ontario ... and one of those bedrooms belonged to young Biebs -- who spent about 80% of his childhood at the house.

The house is being marketed as Justin's former crib.  As for the asking price ... it's pushing it, but grandma and gramps think a rich Belieber will ante up.

Real estate sources say the home has been updated ... but Justin's room has been left intact -- it's decorated the way he liked it ... with the logo of his favorite hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, emblazoned on the bedding, curtains and wallpaper.

Too bad 14-year-old girls don't buy houses.

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J Kim Kardashian Ass PhotoRay J has a knack for making money when Kim Kardashian gets naked ... and he hit the jackpot again with last week's nude photos.

The photos triggered renewed interest in "Kim K Superstar," and our sources at Vivid Entertainment say sales of the video have dramatically spiked ... so much so, Ray J will pocket $50K from the last week alone ... way up from what's he's been getting.

Ray has been getting around $90K every 3 months, so this is a real ass-tronomical increase.

Steve Hirsch, president of Vivid Entertainment, tells TMZ, the most recent spike makes "Kim K Superstar" the biggest selling celebrity sex tape of all time.  

Until last week, the title holders were Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee.

'80s Band Survivor

We Were Threatened With

Nuclear Annihilation!

11/18/2014 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117_Survivor_getty'80s rockers Survivor think their 30-year-old hit "Eye of the Tiger" is still making bank on the Internet -- and they claim Sony's screwing them out of the dough ... and threatening to cut them off completely.

Two band members, Frank Sullivan III and James Peterik, say the record label's been licensing their music to digital services like iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify ... without giving the band its fair share of the royalties.

Sullivan and Peterik say they bitched to Sony about this for years, until execs finally threatened to exercise "the nuclear option" ... which the suit describes as removing ALL Survivor songs from digital services.

Translation: Keep talking and you'll REALLY be screwed!

Survivor's response is to sue -- they want a judge to order Sony to pay up.
