Ex-Miss NY USA

Getting Screwed on

... And Not the Good Way

12/15/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beauty Queen Match.ComTwo-time NY beauty queen Meaghan Jarensky isn't herself these days because someone stole her identity, and set up a fake dating profile -- now she needs to help her nail the ID thief.

Jarensky says the suspect used her pics and info to open the fake account -- but the site won't tell her who's behind the phony profile without a court order. She's filed legal docs to get that ball rolling. 

The former Miss NY USA 2005 and Mrs. NY America 2010 says she's ready to take down the creep who's defaming her online ... once the court gives her the go ahead.

She also wants peace and to end world hunger ... we presume.

... Sony Hack Reveals

breaking news


's dad tried to cash in on his famous daughter's name last year with a Destiny's Child biopic ... according to the latest batch of leaked Sony emails released by hackers.

Mathew Knowles reportedly reached out to Sony in December 2013 ... offering the studio first dibs on a movie about the girl group -- and execs seemed into the idea.

However it doesn't look like they ever came to a deal. Lifetime is reportedly planning a D.C. movie next year, but unclear if Mathew's behind that one.

Another leaked email referenced a possible Kanye West feature film. A Yeezy staffer sent an email sent to Sony Pictures honcho Amy Pascal ... pitching her a movie project involving "cinematic and technological innovation."

Great -- Kanye ranting in 4D.

Country Singer John Rich

I'm PISSED at Marvel

Live Show Scared My Kids

12/14/2014 11:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1213-john-rich-tmz-marvel-01John Rich is PISSED at Marvel ... he says their live show for children is anything but kid friendly -- and it ruined what should have been a great day for his family.

Rich says his 3 and 4 year old sons had been looking forward to "Marvel Universe LIVE!" for months ... but both burst into tears shortly after it started -- due to "loud explosions and aggressive audio."

The country singer tells us pyrotechnics are set off extremely close to the front row -- multiple times -- and it scared the crap out of his kids so bad he had to take them home 15 minutes into "M.U.L."

He adds, "They [Marvel] should warn people before you drop a few hundred bucks to get your kids all hyped up.  Really disappointed us."

The website for the show does warn there will be loud noises and "safe" pyrotechnics.  

A rep for Marvel says, "We take into consideration the ages and sensitivities of all our audiences when producing our shows, and we apologize if Mr. Rich felt the special effects were too loud."

1214-lindsay-lohan-tmz-01Lindsay Lohan has sworn off the City of Angels ... and it's possible she's finally got her head on straight.

LiLo told the Guardian her time in the U.K. has been eye-opening ... and made her realize the L.A. nightlife scene helped trigger her downward spiral -- so she says she'll stay in the U.K. for good.

The 28 year-old says, "I won't live in LA again, hell no."

"I can go for a run here on my own," Lohan explains ... adding, "I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”

United Kingdom, she's all yours.



Lil Wayne Will Fly the Coop

Over My Dead Body

12/14/2014 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Birdman Lil Wayne BeefBirdman is NOT letting Lil Wayne out of his recording contract, no matter how much he bitches.

Sources close to Birdman tell us ... he's deeply offended by Weezy's public rants ... claiming Birdman has tried to derail his career by refusing to release his new album. Weezy didn't mince words, tweeting, "I want off this label and nothing to do with these people."

Birdman is unmoved and vows to duke it out in court if necessary, because a contract is a contract.  

As for the delay in dropping the album, we're told Birdman says there's lots of administrative work that goes into releasing a record, and Weezy is just a rapper, not a businessman, so what does he know?

Birdman still intends to release the album, but on his time, not Weezy's.

Wayne has thrown down the gauntlet, calling himself a prisoner of the Cash Money music mogul.

I Only Expect the 'Black Media'

To Be Good Journalists

breaking news

1214-bill-cosby-tmz-01Bill Cosby is pleading with the media to stay neutral in reporting on the multiple rape allegations made against him ... but the legendary comedian strongly suggested the white media wasn't giving him a fair shake.

When asked about the allegations, Cosby told Page Six, "Let me say this.  I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind."

Bill reportedly sounded upbeat on the phone ... and said, "Love and the strength of womanhood" when asked how his wife is holding up through all of this.

He added, "Let me say it again, love and the strength of womanhood.  And, you could reverse it, the strength of womanhood and love."

That's where he cut off the conversation ... saying "they don't want me talking to the media."



Traci Bingham

Takes it on the Chin

Over Porn Shoot

12/14/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Traci Bingham PornTraci Bingham just learned a hard lesson about porn ... if you chicken out, it could not only cost you a fortune, it could even get you arrested.

The former "Baywatch" star signed on back in 2012 for a very explicit photo shoot which required her (and now we'll quote from the contract) "to pose for what is commonly referred to in erotica as a 'facial.'"  

Traci took a $30K advance and then backed out of the shoot, so then resolved to cream her in court ... which they did. They got a $180K judgment.  

Traci didn't pay and blew off subsequent court appearances, so the judge issued a warrant for her arrest. 

We reached out to Traci for comment – so far no word back.

A sticky situation, indeed.
