Michael Irvin Under Investigation for Sexual Assault He Says She's Lying

3/29/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328_michael-irvin_tmzMichael Irvin is being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at a Ft. Lauderdale hotel ... something he vigorously denies.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports, a 27-year-old Florida woman filed a police report, claiming she and the NFL Hall of Famer were out at a bar in the early hours of March 21 when they went back to the W hotel, where Michael was staying.

The woman says they were in Michael's room when she began to feel sick. She says the last thing she remembers is fighting him off. She says when she woke up he was about to check out, leaving her behind. She took an Uber home and called 911 at 7:30 AM.

She told cops she feared she was drugged and raped. She was advised to go to a medical lab for a swab and a blood test, which she did.

She says she also texted Michael, asking him if they had sex. She says he responded that he wouldn't do anything to hurt her.

Our sources say Michael, now an analyst at NFL Network, tells a very different story. He says he was out at a bar with a group of people, including the woman, until around 4:30 AM March 21, when he returned to his hotel and she followed. Michael says he had an early flight, was in the room for only 15 minutes and had no sexual contact with the woman. He also says another male was present.

He says the woman -- a cosmetologist -- texted him a day later saying, "Come for a facial when you get back to Ft. Lauderdale."

Irvin's lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ Sports, "Michael was in Ft. Lauderdale visiting his nieces and nephews at a track meet. He was also visiting his 90-year-old aunt and attending her birthday party. He was blindsided by news of these allegations."  

Friedman adds, "The allegations are completely false. In the few hours since we've learned about them we've already discovered many red flags about this young woman's background and the allegations she made against Michael. Even the complaint that she made specifically says she does not recall the events that took place. She was very drunk that night. Nothing happened and there was no assault."

Police are investigating.

EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton engaged in some revisionist history over her relationship with Kim Kardashian and the sex tapes that made them famous.

PARIS TODAY -- We got Paris at LAX and our photog asked about the story that she and Kim were together in Australia back in 2007 when Kim's sex tape hit the market. When our guy dared to say it launched Kim's career, she fired back, "I don't think anybody would want to be launched like that."

BACK IN THE DAY -- Kim's sex tape -- and Paris' too for that matter -- could not have been sold without their consent. On top of that, both made untold millions from their videos, which undeniably put them front and center in the celebrity universe. To be fair, both women became incredibly successful entrepreneurs in a variety of business ventures.

PARIS TODAY -- Paris told our photog she has known Kim all her life and loves her.

BACK IN THE DAY -- During their legendary feud in 2008, vying for top dog spot, Paris called Kim's ass, "cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag."

BTW ... we love Paris and the fact is ... both women did more than ok.

Tyra Sanchez Drag Queens Aren't 'AGT' Playthings ... I Was Mocked!

3/29/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former "RuPaul's Drag Race" champ Tyra Sanchez claims "America's Got Talent" pulled a cruel bait and switch, trying to make him something he's not ... Tyra Banks.

Sanchez -- real name James Ross -- tells us 'AGT' producers reached out to him about doing a funny bit with their new host. He says he was into it, but believed he'd appear as HIS character ... Tyra Sanchez. Somewhere along the way he says the deal changed, and they wanted him to be a contestant ... as a Banks impersonator.

He's convinced they were setting him up to be the butt of the joke, but he didn't fall for it ... like many before him have. Ross wants his fellow queens to rise up and refuse to do the show or even watch it.

We reached out to 'AGT' ... so far no word back.

0328-marci-anderson-wahl-tmz-02Marci Wahl -- the woman who's been twice arrested for trying to jump a White House fence -- served in the U.S. Army for more than 8 years ... and she's a big supporter of President Trump.

Army Reserve reps tell TMZ ... Marci served from March 2001 to December 2009 as an electronic missile system repair specialist and had a 2-year stint in Germany. She won a Good Conduct Medal and an Army Achievement Medal.

We've spoken with 3 members of the U.S. Army who say she served in Iraq in Operation Iraqi Freedom II, but the Army tells us they have no record of her serving in Iraq.

Friends who served with Marci tell us she was very well-liked and a good soldier ... which is why many were shocked by the news of her fence jumping. One source said she wasn't very political when he knew her, and another said "something inside her must have snapped."

As we reported, Marci told Secret Service agents she really wants to speak with Donald Trump and she'll try again to get inside The White House. According to some of her online vids, she thinks folks should love the president and that Trump's being too nice.

She's also REALLY into astrology.

Tupac Shakur Lawsuits over Passport, Handwritten Song Lyrics

3/29/2017 6:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329-2pac-gettyTupac Shakur is about to get posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which makes his personal stuff more valuable than ever ... and all that attention has triggered several new lawsuits.

The estate of Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mom, is suing to retrieve the rapper's passport, driver's license, clothing, jewelry, handwritten scripts and lyrics and notebooks. The scripts and lyrics are clearly the most valuable.

The estate is suing Moments in Time, an auction house, as well as 2 individuals who have possession of the items.

According to the lawsuits, filed by celeb attorney Howard King, the defendants bought the items from 3rd parties who had no ownership rights and therefore no right to sell the items.

The suit claims the estate has repeatedly told the defendants they have no right to the items but the demands have been ignored.

Stephen King Sued You Took My Gunslinger to 'The Dark Tower' That'll Cost Ya $500 Mil!!

3/28/2017 6:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-stephen-king-the-dark-tower-TMZ-01Stephen King stole the idea for his main man in "The Dark Tower" series from a famous comic book character also known as a gunslinger ... according to a new suit.

The creator of "The Rook" comics claims King's protagonist, Roland Deschain, is based on his main character, Restin Dane. He says Deschain has striking similarities to Dane other than just their initials -- both are "time-traveling, monster-fighting, quasi-immortal, romantic adventure heroes."

"The Rook" creator also points out King's Deschain dresses like a cowboy despite not being from the Old West -- just like Restin Dane -- and the towers in both books look the same.

0328-the-rook-the-dark-tower-comparison-01

According to the docs ... the Restin Dane character was in more than 5 million comic magazines from 1977-1983 and King admits he read those stories. The first book in King's 'Dark Tower' series was released in 1982.

Translation -- "The Rook" creator thinks it's more than just a coincidence Roland is a lot like Restin, and he wants the King of Horror to fork over $500 million for ripping him off.

The lawsuit is impeccably timed ... teaser footage from the upcoming "Dark Tower" movie, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, was just released this week.

Manson Family Killer Let Me Out! I'm Mature, Not Brainwashed

3/29/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328-main-leslie-van-houten-getty-01Leslie Van Houten deserves parole from her life sentence because she was too immature to understand her savage actions in the Manson family killing spree ... according to new legal docs.

Leslie’s lawyer, Richard Pfeiffer, submitted a 13-page report to convince the parole board to release her. The report includes testimony from psychologist Laurence Steinberg ... who says then 19-year-old Leslie’s immaturity prevented her from exercising self-restraint, controlling her impulses and weighing consequences.

Van Houten was convicted for the stabbing murders of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.

Steinberg adds as Van Houten grew up ... her brain matured and she escaped Charles Manson’s brainwashing. He believes her exemplary prison record proves she has matured and “strongly suggests” she won’t commit further criminal acts.

0328-sub-leslie-van-houten-swipe-ap-01Of course, Van Houten got shot down for parole last year when Governor Jerry Brown nixed the idea. The report will be presented at her next parole hearing, later this year.

Leslie, now 67, was the youngest person ever sentenced to death in California. That was later commuted to life with parole.
