Porn Star Visits 1st Graders?
(TMZ) Porn legend Sasha Grey -- winner of the 2010 AVN award for best anal sex scene -- was invited to read books to 1st graders at an L.A.-area elementary school last week ... but the school tried to cover it all up ... after parents pitched a fit.

TMZ has obtained photos of Sasha reading children's books at Emerson Elementary School in Compton on November 2nd ... participating in the Read Across America program.

Sasha tweeted about the experience -- calling the students the "sweetest" ever. Howeveer, not everyone saw it that way ... some angry parents complained to the PTA -- which then contacted the school's principal ... but there's one problem.

A rep for the school district is flatly denying Sasha was ever inside one of its classrooms -- telling TMZ, "We have several celebrities who read to our students each year. The actress you have indicated [Sasha] was not present."

Clearly, the photos we obtained show otherwise. See the photos here.

16 and Pregnant and Now Single
(TMZ) "16 and Pregnant" star Whitney Purvis tells TMZ, she's had her fill of her baby daddy's slacker do-nothing lifestyle ...so she dumped the guy, and took the kid to her parents' house.

18-year-old Whitney -- who was featured on the MTV show in 2009 -- tells us, she was living with her boyfriend and their son in an apartment in Georgia up until a couple of weeks ago -- but she decided to call it quits.

According to Whitney, she ended things because her man -- Weston Gosa -- "was gone all the time. He wouldn't come home until 3AM in the morning ... I was home with the baby and he was nowhere to be found."

But Whitney doesn't believe Weston was cheating -- telling us, "You know when someone is cheating on you. He was just out with his friends all the time getting messed up ... I don't want that around my kid."

Whitney claims the couple was fighting constantly and she just couldn't take it anymore, so she moved back in with her parents -- and took their son with her.

Attempts to reach Weston were unsuccessful. more on this story
