Kate del Castillo Hey, Mexican Atty General You Leak Like a Sieve

2/3/2016 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-kate-castillo-tmz-01Kate del Castillo has filed legal docs in Mexico asking a judge to muzzle the country's attorney general, whom she says is leaking information about her to gain political hay.

Kate -- who along with Sean Penn secretly interviewed El Chapo while he was on the run -- is being investigated for money laundering. Sources close to Kate claim the allegations are BS, and the only reason the investigation is proceeding is because she embarrassed the government by finding El Chapo when they couldn't. 

Sources connected with the Mexican government tell TMZ, her legal docs claim the investigation is required to be conducted with secrecy -- like a grand jury. She claims the A.G. is grandstanding by leaking info and she wants a judge to order her to stop. 

There are media reports circulating that she wants an injunction to prohibit the government from arresting her. We've learned those reports are inaccurate. The injunction is to clamp down on leaks.

O.J. Simpson TV Show ERROR ... O.J. Didn't Threaten Suicide in Kim's Room

2/3/2016 1:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-kim-room-fx-01The new O.J. Simpson series is awesome, but there's a Kardashian-related story line that is just not true ... TMZ has learned. 

O.J. Simpson did NOT threaten suicide with a loaded gun pointed at his head in Kim Kardashian's childhood bedroom -- it was KHLOE'S room ... and the walls weren't adorned by Joey Lawrence.

Our Kardashian sources say Kim and Kourtney shared a bedroom in the Encino home, and Khloe had a room to herself -- the one featured in the show.

As for the posters plastered on Khloe's wall of Joey Lawrence and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, we're told none of the girls had pics on their wall.

In fact, check out Robert Kardashian's interview with Barbara Walters back in 1996 (below). They're sitting in the room where O.J. threatened suicide, and there's not a poster in sight. BTW, he never says it's Kim's room. He simply says "my daughter's room." Our Kardashian sources are clear ... it's Khloe's.

The Game 10 Million Reasons To Get His Ass to Court!

2/3/2016 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0203_the_game_tmzThe Game's been M.I.A. from a sexual assault case he's facing in Illinois, and as of Monday his absence could cost him millions.

As we previously reported, Priscilla Rainey sued the rapper for $10 million last summer, claiming he had sexually assaulted her on his reality show, "She's Got Game." 

Game never answered her complaint, so the judge just entered a default. We're guessing this might finally get Game's attention, since he'll likely have to cough up some cash if he doesn't respond.

The next hearing is set for the end of February, which could be Game's last chance to fight back.

Kesha Mom Beats Dr. Luke in Defamation Suit ... At Least in NY

2/3/2016 1:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0203-pebe-sebert-dr-luke-tmz-getty-02Kesha's mom did not engage in a smear campaign against famed producer Dr. Luke -- his lawsuit which claimed that has been dismissed.

A judge in NY State tossed the case on Wednesday. This legal battle's been going on since October 2014, when Luke sued Pebe Sebert, saying she fueled Kesha's anger over her contract with Luke. He also claimed Pebe attempted to extort him if he didn't let Kesha out of the deal.

The judge dismissed the matter for a few reasons -- including jurisdiction issues and because Luke's lawyers couldn't prove Pebe had "control" over Kesha.

However, Luke has a backup plan: He filed a similar suit against Pebe in Tennessee, which is still active.

Luke and Kesha's lawsuits against each other are also ongoing. Kesha and her attorney Mark Geragos will be in court later this month as she fights to get out of her contract.

Bill Cosby Black Lex Luthor ... to Sketch Artist

2/3/2016 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020316-cosby-sketchYou might think Bill Cosby's getting ready to take on Superman ... based on a courtroom sketch from his sexual assault hearing outside Philadelphia.

Cosby and his lawyers are trying to get the Andrea Constand case dismissed, and sketch artists are on hand watching day 2 of testimony. One illustration, of a bald and severely frowning Cosby, could be straight outta DC Comics.

We're not saying he's gonna play the villain in "Batman v. Superman." We're just saying he looks like he could.

Still more accurate than Tom Brady though.


California Lottery I Won $63 Mil and State Won't Pay ... Sues for the Dough

2/3/2016 12:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020316-ca-lottery-gettyA lottery player who claims to have won a $63 million lottery jackpot is now suing the state for holding his check on a technicality.

Someone named Brandy Milliner submitted a winning ticket in the SuperLotto Plus drawing from August 8, 2015, but got a letter from the lottery commission in January saying the ticket was "too damaged."

Time is running out ... the deadline to claim the prize is Feb. 4. If no one claims it, it will be the largest prize in California history to go unclaimed. 

In the suit, Milliner says the commission refuses to return the winning ticket ... despite multiple requests for it to do so. Milliner wants a judge to declare him the winner.  

We reached out to the lotto, but no word back.

2/3/2016 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber was slinging tequila and charming ladies with his piano playing and singing. 

Monday night Bieber rolled into The Nice Guy in L.A. and was the nicest guy as he perched at the piano to sing two of his own songs and covered One Republic's "Apologize." 

If that wasn't enough love to spread to the unsuspecting patrons, Biebs looked at a table of girls and dedicated a song to the birthday girl then bought all of her friends tequila shots. 

We're told he made the rounds, asking people how they were doing as if he was the maitre d'. 

Free impromptu concerts seem to be his thing lately.   


O.J. Simpson's Daughter Sydney 22 Years After Mother's Murder

2/3/2016 10:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-sydney-simpson-splash-01O.J. Simpson's daughter, Sydney Simpson, has resurfaced in St. Petersburg, Florida. She was quietly living there, until the swell of interest over the FX crime drama about her father.

Sydney, now 30, blended in with the rest of her neighbors doing the usual errands ... taking out the trash and walking her dog.

You can't help but feel bad ... Sydney was 8 and her brother, Justin, only 5 when their mother, Nicole Brown Simpson, was nearly decapitated at her Brentwood condo while they both slept upstairs. It's almost unthinkable ... but O.J. left Nicole's body for her kids to find. Luckily, cops intervened.

Florida ... a long way from Las Vegas, where O.J.'s currently in prison for a different crime.


'Bev Hills Nannies' Star Claims Valet Hocked Loogie ... Led to Hospital Visit

2/3/2016 10:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0202-ariane-bellamar-tmz-01"Beverly Hills Nannies" star Ari Bellamar claims she wound up in the hospital after a valet attendant went ballistic and spit into her family's car.

Ari says the nasty run-in went down outside Dan Tana's, the famous Italian restaurant in West Hollywood. After dropping their car off at Dan Tana's valet, Ari and her family decided to hit up a different restaurant right next door for takeout.

She says when they came back their car was blocked and the valet attendant was pissed they didn't eat at Dan Tana's. Ari claims he body checked her husband and then hocked a loogie into a napkin and threw it inside their car as they drove off.

Ari is 4 months pregnant and says the stress made her start spotting so much, she was admitted to a hospital. The baby is okay, but Ari's husband has filed a battery report with cops.

Dan Tana's says the valet is not its employee, but works for an outside company.

Lil Wayne's SB Commercial Nothing Racist About Me Grilling for George Washington

2/3/2016 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

020316_lil_wayne_primaryLil Wayne and George Washington co-star in a Super Bowl commercial this year -- but some people are taking issue, since it shows Wayne cooking for George ... who famously owned slaves.

The ad for features Jeff Goldblum and a gospel choir singing 'Jeffersons' theme "Moving On Up." Eventually you see George and Weezy (get the reference?) all chummy next to a rooftop barbecue grill.

The criticism? The ad is low-key racist due to Washington's history as a slaver, but Wayne's camp doesn't see it that way ... at all. A source very close to him says the commercial is "meant to be funny and silly and not the least bit offensive."

The source added it's supposed to be comedy, and "people need to calm down." 

We've also reached out to, but no word back yet. Either way, their ad's getting way more attention now.
