Jared Leto Is Suing TMZ Because He CRAZY.

Elisabetta Canalis And Jared Leto Attend GQ's Man of The Year

Okay, Jared Leto.  Time to chill out.

Apparently, TMZ posted a video of Jared Leto critiquing Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album, where he was shown saying, “I mean f*ck her, I don’t give a f*ck about her.” And like 30 seconds after the clip leaked, he apologized.

HOWEVER, Leto is definitely not apologizing to TMZ. In fact, he filed a lawsuit against the gossip site and the parent company Warner Bros. Entertainment for publishing the footage even though they knew it was stolen.  More like 30 Seconds To COURT, am I rite?

Leto even released the following statement :

“Last Sunday, I was alerted that TMZ had acquired personal and private video footage of me in my home and that they were planning to leak it on their site. My team notified TMZ immediately that I fully owned the footage and that their source had absolutely no rights to sell it. They chose to post it anyway.”

The 43-year-old believes his privacy and basic rights were violated even though nobody really cares. He furthers:

“This was stolen footage. This was an invasion of privacy. And it was both legally and morally wrong. Regardless of who we are, we should all be able to talk freely in the privacy of our own homes without the fear that our unfiltered thoughts or actions will get broadcast to the world. We have the right to privacy and security and when we don’t have protections in place to safeguard those things, we lose the freedom to speak loudly and clearly – right or wrong – about anything and everything we choose to.”

By going forward with this suit, the rocker sanctimoniously hopes to p”revent future incidences” from happening. Yawn.

“I have chosen to file this lawsuit not because I want to, but in hopes it will encourage more people to stop trafficking in stolen goods, to follow proper legal procedure and so that it may motivate additional consideration for the harm these acts can create, especially when the only intention is to simply further the bottom line for the companies and corporations that commit these acts.”

I have a question: does anybody REALLY care?

Cory Monteith enters rehab!

‘Glee’ actor Cory Monteith has entered rehab! According to his rep, the 30-year-old has checked himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction. Here’s more from TMZ:

“Glee” star Cory Monteith has checked himself into rehab for substance addiction, a rep for the 30-year-old actor announced this morning.

Monteith’s rep told PEOPLE mag, “[Monteith] has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”

Monteith, who stars as Finn Hudson on the Fox show, was in rehab once before when he was 19. He talked about it back in 2011, saying, “I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too.”

When I first heard the news, I thought wait a second….he’s so young! And then I realized he only plays a teenager on TV. This is his SECOND time in rehab?? Hopefully this time it sticks!

TMZ Founder Dies

Jim Paratore– founder of TMZ and other shows such as Rosie and Ellen- died of an apparent heart attack Tuesday during a bike trip in France.

Paratore served as as President of Telepictures (a division of Warner Bros)  when, in 2006, he made the jump into the digital business.  Then, he developed the concept of TMZ, and sold the idea to industry bigwigs, which was a huge feat. From there, he became critical to the budding website’s success, and was instrumental in getting the website’s television counterpart produced.

Paratore was a risk taker on TMZ, but also, as this TMZ article recounts, on groundbreaking entertainers such as Ellen Degeneres. 

“After Ellen DeGeneres came out, no one wanted to take a chance on her.  Jim recognized her great talent and literally went station to station across the country and convinced very nervous and reluctant general managers that they should take a chance on her — that she was a talent who could connect with and touch everyone … and Jim was right.”

RIP, Mr. Paratore.
