Nicki Minaj Mental Health Org Fires Back ... Miami Video Is No Joke

12/5/2016 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Nicki Minaj is getting more than social media backlash for posting video of a woman losing it in Miami -- now a mental health organization is dressing her down for allegedly mocking the woman.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI-Miami) is sounding off, just like several of Nicki's fans, saying the clip is an invasion of the woman's privacy, which dehumanizes her.

NAMI says it's pissed Nicki's used her fame -- she has 70 million IG followers -- to influence young people in a negative manner. A rep for NAMI says, "Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other." 

Several comments on the video claim it's well-known in South Beach the woman in the video is mentally ill. In Nicki's defense, it's entirely plausible she didn't know that ... plus, she never says anything nasty to the woman.

Breaking News

1205-Margaret-WhittonMargaret Whitton -- who played Indians owner Rachel Phelps in "Major League" -- has died at age 67.

She died peacefully at her home in Florida after a brief battle with cancer, this according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Whitton was GREAT in the 'Major League' movies -- playing an owner rooting against her team so she could relocate 'em from Cleveland to Miami.

Her most memorable scene ... when she crashed the Indians locker room when Lou Brown was complaining about the "bitch" who runs the team ... and responded, "You wanted to talk to the bitch?"

Awesome.

Besides "Major League," Whitton also appeared in "Little Monsters," "The Man Without a Face" and "9 1/2 Weeks" and more.

Shia LaBeouf Done Dissing Lil Yachty ... After This One Last Shot

12/5/2016 1:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf's got a funny way of ending his rap beef with Lil Yachty and Soulja Boy -- he just dropped his final diss track, but he's going out with a bang.

TMZ got a copy of Shia's latest verse, which will air Monday afternoon on Power 106 in L.A.

On this one Shia compares himself to Marlon Brando (bad timing, maybe) ... and really gets out on a limb, by claiming he spits better than Eminem.

He saved his best for last, calling out Yachty one more time -- and Soulja Boy, who banned Shia from Atlanta after his last verse -- saying they're "just pop and MMMbop, and obscure fruit like kumquat."  He also goes after Peter Rosenberg again.

Kumquat, y'all. He rhymed kumquat.

This, apparently, was news to the Katherine's current attorney ... and sources close to the family tell TMZ Prince is in court now to tell the judge they're disputing the new attorney's claim she's now speaking for Katherine.

We got Prince and TJ Jackson (Tito's son) on the way into court and they were tight-lipped.

Marlon Brando Son Defends 'Last Tango' Scene ... He Did NOT Plan a Rape!

12/5/2016 11:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Brando's son is coming to his late father's defense, saying there's no way his father would ever have plotted to sexually violate his "Last Tango in Paris" co-star.

Marlon's oldest living son, Miko Brando, tackled the controversial confession from the film's director, Bernardo BertolucciA video recently surfaced of Bertolucci saying, in 2013, he and Brando planned at the last minute to use a stick of butter on Maria Schneider during the sex scene, and never gave her any forewarning.

In the vid, Bertolucci says he wanted an authentic reaction to rape ... not acting. Schneider, who died in 2011, has said no intercourse took place, but she was shocked and strongly objected to the way things went down. 

Miko calls the story pure crap, and says, "That's not the human being" my father was. He has a theory about why Bertolucci ever made the comment. 

Celebs like Jessica Chastain, Chris EvansAnna Kendrick and Ava DuVernay have expressed outrage at Brando and Bertolucci for essentially plotting to rape a woman -- but Miko's just not buying it.

12/5/2016 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1205_5th-Annual-Breakthrough-Prize-Ceremony-launchThis COULDA been super awkward ... but Alex Rodriguez apparently played it cool when his girlfriend reconnected with her billionaire ex-husband Sunday night ... at an event PACKED with powerful nerds.

Of course, A-Rod is dating Anne Wojcicki -- who was married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin until they split in 2015.

But it seems they're on good (or at least decent) terms because they didn't just hang out at the event last night ... they teamed up onstage and addressed the crowd at one point during the awards ceremony.

1205-Sergey-brin-Anne-Wojcick-at-Breakthrough-Ceremony-photos-primaryFYI, Brin is reportedly worth more than $30 BILLION. 

A-Rod and Wojcicki started dating earlier this year. Brin attended the event with his girlfriend, Nicole Shanahan ... an accomplished lawyer/business mogul (who also happens to be smoking hot). 

The event itself was wall-to-wall rich people and celebs ... including Mark Zuckerberg, Vin Diesel, Kevin Durant and more.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Child Visitation Changes in Hands of Therapist

12/5/2016 10:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt's child custody arrangement with Angelina Jolie is in the hands of one man ... according to docs filed by Jolie.

Right now, the exes and their 6 kids are operating under a temporary custody deal agreed upon by both sides. As we've reported ... she has primary custody and Brad gets monitored visits, but the docs Angelina filed spell out the details.

According to the docs ... when and how Brad sees the children is determined by a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues. The deal says, the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D." Brad and Angie also must participate in group therapy sessions with the kids.

The terms of this deal must stay in place until there's a court order, or both parents agree to change it.

Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.

Pitt and Jolie made this arrangement in October, while Brad was still under investigation by the DCFS, but as we've reported ... the agency cleared him of any wrongdoing a month ago.

Jolie's filing essentially memorializes the temporary deal with the court. The judge signed it on Friday.

Cam Newton & Ron Rivera The Wardrobe Confrontation ... At Team Bus

12/5/2016 8:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here it is ... the moment Panthers head coach Ron Rivera confronted Cam Newton about his dress code violation before the team trip to Seattle ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

It all went down on Saturday at the bay area hotel where the team had been staying since playing the Raiders in Oakland the previous weekend. 

After the players and coaches had boarded their buses to go to the airport to head to Seattle to play the Seahawks ... Rivera got off his bus, went to Cam's bus, and pulled Cam off for a 1 on 1 convo. 

We're told this was the moment Rivera confronted Cam about his dress code violation -- not wearing a tie on travel day.

You can see the look on Cam's face ... he's obviously disappointed and retreats back to the bus. 

Cam was benched for the first series of the game on Sunday as punishment.

After the game, Cam explained, "I didn't follow dress code, and Coach told me I wasn't going to start. I stand by his decision."

Cam said he had neckties available -- but the reason he didn't rock one? He didn't feel it went with his outfit.
