Angus T. Jones’ Church
We’re NOT Affiliated
with Doomsday Preacher
The church that baptized Angus T. Jones is making it clear … it has ABSOLUTELY NO connection with the conspiracy theorist preacher who’s taken Angus under his wing.
The Seventh-Day Adventist Church has released a statement about Jones … saying it’s “happy” Angus decided to become a member of the L.A. congregation back in June … but the church wants everyone to know it was NOT behind the actor’s anti-”Two and a Half Men” rant.
“These comments were of a personal nature, reflecting his views after having undergone changes during his spiritual journey,” the church said.
As for Christopher Hudson — the homophobic, anti-Obama, conspiracy theorist who interviewed Angus for his Forerunner Chronicles web series — the church says:
“We are unable to offer information because Forerunner Chronicles is not a ministry operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its host is not a pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.”
As we previously reported, Angus told Hudson “Men” was ungodly “filth” … somehow connected to Satan … and he no longer wants to be on the show.
Despite distancing itself from Angus’ comments, the church says, “We welcome him with open arms.”
My Show Got Axed
I Can’t Afford All These Homes
Now we know why Kelsey Grammer wants to move out of the Bev Hills (adjacent) home he just bought and move into the one he bought with Camille Grammer — he’s short on cash.
TMZ broke the story … Camille is fighting mad that Kelsey wants to move into their 10,000 square foot mansion that they’ve been trying in vain to sell.
In court docs, obtained by TMZ, Kelsey says his show, “Boss,” got cancelled so he doesn’t want to carry 2 homes in the same area, both of which have big mortgages. Kelsey says he can rent out his recently-purchased home for $ 30k a month, so he wants to do that and move into the 10,000 square foot estate he bought with Camille.
Camille is pissed because she’s paying half the mortgage and other expenses — and thinks it will be harder to sell if Kelsey, Kayte and their kid move in. BTW, the total carrying cost for the estate is $ 48,130 a month.
Kelsey counters in his declaration …. Camille lives in their Malibu home and he bears half the costs (total $ 15,000 a month), so it’s only fair that he can move into their Bev Hills home.
The judge rejected Camille’s request to bar Kelsey from the home but set a hearing for next month.
By the way, in the docs, Camille reveals that she gets $ 41,000 a month in spousal and child support.
Don’t Blame My Hotness
For Your Hearing Loss
You can’t blame Justin Bieber if his fans scream so damn loud you go deaf, and you definitely can’t sue him over it either … at least according to legal docs filed by Justin’s lawyers.
TMZ broke the story … a mom named Stacey Betts slapped Bieber with a $ 9.23 million lawsuit … claiming her hearing was severely damaged at a 2010 concert when the Biebs “enticed the crowd” into a screaming frenzy.
Now Justin’s firing back, claiming Betts’ lawsuit is missing a few things — like facts.
According to the documents, there’s no way JB could have known “pointing to a crowd” would cause a so-called “sound blast” — and Betts’ suit also fails to allege Bieber has any duty to stop fans from making noise.
Bieber wants the case dismissed … due to lack of facts.
Elmo Accuser #3 Sues
He Plied Me with Booze
Kevin Clash — the former voice of Elmo — used alcohol as a precursor to oral sex with an underage boy … this according to a new lawsuit that has just been filed by a THIRD accuser.
According to the lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan and obtained by TMZ, the alleged victim met Clash on a gay phone chat line when he was 16 and Clash was approximately 40.
The accuser — now 28 — says he was in NYC pursuing modeling opportunities when Clash invited him to his swanky NYC apartment, which was strewn with Elmo dolls and photos of Elmo with famous people, including Beyonce and Tyra Banks.
During the encounter, the accuser — who refers to himself as John Doe — claims Clash plied him with alcohol and “groomed him,” and then engaged in sexual contact that included “oral sex and digital penetration of John’s anus.”
The accuser says Clash stayed in touch with him after the sexual encounter, although no further sexual contact occurred until he became an adult.
The accuser is suing for unspecified damages.
As you know, Clash resigned from Sesame Street hours after the second accuser filed suit.
Angus T. Jones
Angus T. Jones is in showbiz limbo, because he hasn’t quit “Two and a Half Men” and show execs haven’t fired him after he trashed the show … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with “Men” tell TMZ … all of the execs on the show and at Warner Bros. have seen Angus’ video, in which he calls the sitcom “filth” and asks the audience to boycott.
We’ve learned Angus — who rakes in $ 350,000 an episode — has not contacted any of the show honchos to express his intentions, nor have any of his reps done the same. Although Angus says in the video he doesn’t want to be on the show anymore, that message has not been conveyed to show execs.
On the other side, we’ve learned Chuck Lorre, the brains behind the show, has not played his hand … even to Warner Bros. executives.
Today could be telling, because there’s a scheduled rehearsal this AM. It’s unclear if Angus is supposed to be there, but if he’s a no-show his absence could be the first step toward the door.
Ex-Voice of Elmo
Underage Sex Accuser #3
to Sue Kevin Clash
Kevin Clash is being accused of a third sexual relationship with an underage boy — and the former voice of Elmo could be sued as early as Tuesday, according to a report.
The latest accuser claims he was 16 when he engaged in “sexual activity” with Clash back in 2000 — and alleges they met on a gay chat line.
It’s a very similar claim to the one made by accuser #2, Cecil Singleton. TMZ broke the story when Singleton filed suit last week — and a few hours later Clash resigned from “Sesame Street.”
The third accuser’s attorney, Jeff Herman, told the NY Daily News his client plans to file a lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court as “John Doe” … because he doesn’t want to go public.
If Only Charlie Sheen
Could Save ‘Liz & Dick’ Too
Charlie Sheen gave Lindsay Lohan $ 100,000 to help pay off her taxes — but that money might have been better spent on “Liz & Dick.” Then again, $ 500 grand couldn’t save that disaster.

I’m NO Lesbian
Dolly Parton is NOT gay … the same way that Oprah Winfrey is not gay … so says Dolly Parton.
Dolly set the record straight about her sexual orientation during an interview with “Nightline.” Parton says she’s well aware of the rumors that she’s in a secret relationship with her BFF Judy Ogle … but claims the rumors are simply untrue.
“Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade,” Parton explained … saying, “We still just have a great friendship and relationship and I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we’re not romantically involved.”
In fact, Dolly — who’s been married to a man for 46 years — says she bonded with Oprah over the lesbian rumors … since Oprah has also been hounded by false rumors that she’s in a secret relationship with her BFF Gayle King.
“Like Gayle, her friend, Judy, my friend … [people] just think that you just can’t be that close to somebody.”
Obtains Restraining Order
Against Halle’s Fiance
Gabriel Aubryhas obtained a restraining order against Halle Berry‘s fiance Olivier Martinez, who busted Gabriel’s face during a brutal brawl on Thanksgiving … and Gabriel’s declaration paints a radically different picture of what went down at Halle’s on Thursday.
According to Gabriel’s declaration, the day before Thanksgiving, Gabriel took Nahla to her school play. Halle and Olivier showed up and Olivier walked up to Gabriel and whispered in his ear in French, “I wish I could beat the s**t out of you right now. You’re lucky we’re in a school right now. We’re going to take Nahla right now and you’re not going to follow us.”
The next day, Gabriel says he took Nahla to Halle’s at around 10 AM. He says in a completely unusual move, Olivier came out of the front door — usually the nanny was the go-between. Gabriel claims Olivier said, “We need to talk.” Gabriel says he walked toward the front door when
Olivier jumped off the stairs and knocked Gabriel to the ground and started brutally beating him, screaming that Gabriel cost them $ 3 million to fight the custody war (Halle’s failed move to take Nahla to Paris).
According to the declaration, as Oliver assaulted Gabriel he screamed that they were going to move to Paris and Gabriel had better move there too or Olivier would kill him.
Gabriel alleges in his declaration that Halle lost her bid to get primary custody with the judge consistently siding with Gabriel for a 50/50 arrangement.
Gabriel’s lawyer attached photos of his injuries which are brutal.
Sources on Halle’s side claim it was Gabriel who flew off the handle and started the fight.
As TMZ first reported, an emergency protective order has already been issued against Gabriel — requiring him to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and Nahla. We’re told Halle’s lawyers will go to court this week in an attempt to have the order extended.
