Keaton Jones' Father White Supremacist Doing Time

12/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Social media pages belonging to Keaton Jones' estranged father are littered with white supremacy propaganda, although he hasn't posted in a while ... because he's locked up in a Tennessee jail.

The father's name is Shawn White and his Facebook features multiple memes with sayings like, "HOLY F*** I LOVE BEING WHITE," "Keep Calm and be White Pride,"  and "Aryan Pride."

The memes we found were all posted in 2014. There was also a selfie profile pic that shows Shawn shirtless with "PURE BREED" tatted on his chest ... and "WHITE PRIDE" on his stomach.

He also has neck ink that reads, "CWB" -- a common abbreviation for a gang called Crazy White Boy.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, White's been in Knox County Jail since May 2015. He's locked up on a probation violation related to a 2012 aggravated assault conviction, and scheduled to get out in 2018.

It's unclear what, if any, relationship Shawn has with Keaton. He last posted a pic with Keaton and his sister in January 2015. We didn't find any record of Shawn marrying Kimberly Jones and, obviously, Keaton has his mom's last name.

Shawn's white supremacy posts are interesting in light of Kimberly's confederate flag photos ... which she's downplayed as "ironic and funny."  

Lil Peep's Death DEA to Investigate Fentanyl Overdose

12/13/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Peep's fatal overdose is prompting the Drug Enforcement Administration to jump on the case, and we're told it has everything to do with one specific drug ... Fentanyl.

Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ ... the DEA will assist local authorities in Tucson where the rapper overdosed on Fentanyl and Xanax. More specifically, the DEA's main objective is finding out who provided the powerful opioid.

We broke the story ... cops are interested in texts allegedly sent from a woman named Mariah Bons ... who we're told went to the rapper's tour bus to see him before he died.

She allegedly sent a text to a friend that reads, "Gbc [Lil Peep] high af because of me and my friend lol."

The DEA's been all over the nationwide opioid epidemic, and also got involved after Prince died from a Fentanyl overdose. In Peep's case, cops suspect he ingested Xanax laced with Fentanyl.

EXCLUSIVE

Jesus wants to rock and who's gonna tell him he can't?

Thomas Payne, aka Jesus on "The Walking Dead," busted out a surprise performance last weekend of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." Thomas and a bunch of other 'Dead' stars were in Iselin, NJ for a fan convention.

We're told TP was drinking at the hotel bar when he decided to jump on stage with the local faves, Chapter 2 Band, and did his best Steven Tyler impression. We'll say this -- he went for it.

Thomas was on a roll -- he also belted R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."

He did all this singing while complaing about a stomach ache. Not that you can tell. Much.

Terry Glenn Cops Release Crash Pics from Fatal Wreck

12/13/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL star Terry Glenn crashed his truck into a concrete divider on a Texas highway after apparently tailgating at the Dallas Cowboys game ... according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

The Irving Police Dept. has now released crash photos and incident reports from the Nov. 20 crash that killed the former WR and left his fiancee severely injured. 

Cops say Glenn was driving his Ford F250 around 12:18 AM when he hit the entrance to the toll lane and flipped. Neither Glenn nor his fiancee were wearing seatbelts. 

When cops arrived, they found Glenn unconscious on the ground, barely breathing with a slight pulse. He had a massive wound on the back of his head. 

Glenn's fiancee suffered injuries to her face and a possible broken collarbone. 

Cops say Glenn was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead short time later. 

Glenn's fiancee told police she and Terry attended the Cowboys game in Arlington earlier in the evening. You can see tailgating supplies, including a cooler, chairs and BBQ charcoal, scattered around the crash scene. 

Glenn's fiancee admitted she had been drinking earlier in the day -- but "was not clear" if Glenn had consumed alcohol, too. 

Officials conducted toxicology tests on Glenn's body -- so far, no word on the results.

Cops say no alcohol was recovered at the crash scene, however investigators did find a "marijuana grinder and bottle."

Glenn's clothing was taken as evidence.

TMZ Sports also obtained several 911 calls made by witnesses detailing the scene in the moments after the crash. 

Glenn was 43.

We're told everyone involved is seriously down for Farm Sanctuary's cause -- defending livestock from cruelty. Joan's even visited their shelter.

Roy Moore Loses Alabama Senate Election Against Doug Jones

12/12/2017 7:36 PM PST
Breaking News

The contentious and highly publicized race for Alabama's vacant Senate seat is finally over ... and the victor is Doug Jones.

Roy Moore lost the special election for the seat left open by Jeff Sessions Tuesday night, to his Democratic opponent Jones, by a slim margin ... amidst the mounting allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

Moore and his campaign chairman appeared on stage shortly after Jones' acceptance speech to announce they'd continue to watch votes come in, hoping the margin of victory is less than .5% for Jones to trigger an automatic recount ... but that seems very unlikely.

As we reported ... Moore rode in horseback to cast his ballot Tuesday -- and the showmanship apparently didn't pay off. It's unclear if his spokesman's TV appearances had any effect.

President Trump weighed in on Moore's loss by seemingly taking the high road.

Mariah Carey is still Nick Cannon's dream girl ... at least she is in his latest music video, which features a diva doggie version of his ex.

Nick just dropped his Ncredible Gang vid for "Dream Girl" featuring Jeremih and Ty Money. We're told the song's definitely about Mariah -- Nick even sings "ain't over my ex." 

Gotta love the concept -- Nick got adorable pooches to stand-in for the humans. Mimi, Nick and even their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, have doggie doppelgangers. Nick's is easy to spot -- he's the one in a turban. And watch for the Migos cameos as chihuahuas ... with locks!!

We'll say it ... this is bitchin'.

BLM's DeRay McKesson Sues Jeanine Pirro ... She Lied, Now I'm in Danger!!!

12/12/2017 6:03 PM PST
Breaking News

6:15 PM PT -- A FOX News spokesperson tells TMZ ... “We informed Mr. McKesson's counsel that our commentary was fully protected under the First Amendment and the privilege for reports of judicial proceedings. We will defend this case vigorously.”DeRay McKesson -- one of the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement -- is suing FOX News personality Jeanine Pirro for saying he directed protesters to attack a police officer.

McKesson says Pirro was on "FOX & Friends" on September 28, discussing a lawsuit filed by the cop against BLM. According to the suit, Pirro made a series of outrageous and false statements about him.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, DeRay says Pirro blamed him for directing the violence, and added, "You've got a police officer who was injured, he was injured at the direction of DeRay McKesson."

DeRay believes Pirro made her statements knowing they were false -- and it's damaged his rep and endangered him as a civil rights activist. As we reported, a federal judge ruled McKesson was expressing his right to free speech at the demonstration, and it wasn't his fault the officer got hurt. 

DeRay's suing both Pirro and FOX News for defamation.

Roman Polanski Calls New Sexual Assault Claim BS But LAPD Launches Investigation

12/12/2017 4:23 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Roman Polanski is sharing information with LAPD detectives who've opened a new investigation into an allegation he sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl back in 1975.

LAPD just announced the investigation into claims made by Marianne Barnard. She recently filed a police report about the alleged assault during a photo shoot. Barnard claims Polanski was directing the shoot, which initially involved her mother, but claims she was eventually left alone with him -- and that's when he allegedly attacked her.

Marianne hinted her mother might have been paid off to leave.

Polanski says Barnard's claim is bogus, and his attorney Harlan Braun tells TMZ ... they hired their own private investigators to look into the allegation. Braun says Marianne's mother refused to talk to their investigators, and they've turned over their findings to LAPD. 

LAPD acknowledges the statute of limitations have long since run for Polanski to be charged, but says it's investigating because any evidence collected could help in other cases.

Roy Moore Spokesman Left Silent on Live TV By Bible, Law Lesson

12/12/2017 3:22 PM PST

Roy Moore's spokesman was a deer in the headlights when he got into a brief, but epic, debate with CNN's Jake Tapper about Muslims swearing on Bibles.

Ted Crockett was a guest on Tapper's show Tuesday when Tapper asked him why Moore doesn't believe Muslims can serve in Congress. Crockett fired off a shaky explanation related to Muslims and the Bible -- but, when Jake dropped some legal knowledge on him ... there was super awkward silence. Like, biblical.

Things got even more uncomfy when it came to the topic of homosexuality.

Less than 2 hours to cast your vote, Alabama!

Jose Canseco I've Been Molested By Women ... Never Complained

12/12/2017 3:49 PM PST
Breaking News

Jose Canseco says the women accusing politicians of sexual misconduct are only complaining because the alleged offenders are "ugly men" ... and now the Oakland A's are distancing themselves from the ex-MLB star. 

Canseco began ranting on Twitter on Tuesday ... saying, "What is going on with all these politicians molesting women I've been molested by several women and never complained."

He continued, "Well I mean I've been beaten by women taken advantage of by women and molested by women I never complain but it was kind of a turn-on."

"I see the difference I guess cuz I was a good-looking guy and these politicians look like a bag of boogers."

But, it was the next line that REALLY pissed some people off ... 

"These women complaining against sexual misconduct are just racist against ugly men."

The comments got back to Jose's former team -- the Oakland A's -- and the organization wasted no time condemning the comments and making it clear they have no relationship with the ex-slugger. 

"We were disappointed to learn of Mr. Canseco's statements," the team said. 

"Mr. Canseco is not an employee of the Athletics and his statements do not reflect the values of our organization or those of our most trusted partners."

Anthony Bourdain Blasts Batali, Food Industry Culture ... I Stand with Women!!!

12/12/2017 3:01 PM PST
Breaking News

Anthony Bourdain would've gladly helped women who were allegedly sexually harassed or abused by Mario Batali ... if they'd shared the allegations with him.

Bourdain's been taking some heat for his reaction to the Batali claims because he hinted he knew about some of the inappropriate behavior. Now, he wants to make it clear he stands "unhesitatingly and unwaveringly with the women."

He says his past admiration for Batali and famed restaurateur Ken Friedman -- who's also been accused -- doesn't matter. He says he's "ashamed that I was clearly not the kind of person that women friends who knew -- and had stories to tell -- felt comfortable confiding in."

Bourdain's girlfriend, Asia Argento, is one of numerous Harvey Weinstein accusers who claims he sexually assaulted her, and Anthony says their relationship helped open his eyes to the plight of women. He even apologized "to the extent which my work in 'Kitchen Confidential' celebrated or prolonged a culture that allowed the kind of grotesque behaviors we're hearing about."

Earlier Tuesday another celeb chef, Giada De Laurentiis, told us this is a time for cleansing.
