'Bachelor in Paradise' New Policy ... Checking Luggage for Illegal Drugs

6/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" contestants will have to ante up all drugs -- both legal and not -- when they land in Mexico for the relaunched version this weekend.

TMZ has obtained an email sent by producers to contestants, which informs them of some of the "new procedures" that have been initiated in the wake of the Corinne Olympios/DeMario Jackson scandal.

The email reads in part, "Upon your arrival, your bags will be inventoried specifically for any over the counter and prescription drugs that are not prescribed to you." Any prescription/illegal drugs will be confiscated."

The email goes on ... "All drugs, over the counter and prescribed, must be submitted to the Nurse to keep and dispense accordingly for your stay in Mexico."

Our production sources say the drug policy is NOT related to Corinne's claim she blacked out during a sexual encounter with DeMario in a swimming pool. We broke the story, Warner Bros. investigated and after reviewing the video concluded she was alert and fully engaged throughout. There is no evidence she was on drugs.

The new policy is part of a broader effort by producers to keep a tighter reign on the activities of contestants.

Mike Comrie Rape Case Rejected Over Holes In Sodomy Claim

6/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NHL star Mike Comrie will NOT be charged with rape -- after prosecutors say there was reasonable doubt as to whether his accuser consented to anal sex during a sexual encounter in February. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Comrie was investigated over a Feb. 11th incident at his L.A. home in which he invited 2 women over for drinks and sex. 

The accuser told police she watched Comrie take the 1st woman into his room for sex. When they were finished, woman #1 left and the accuser then had consensual sex with Comrie.

According to official documents obtained by TMZ Sports the accuser says the sex was consensual at first ... until Comrie crossed the line by engaging in anal sex. 

The woman claims she told him to stop but he didn't -- instead, he allegedly choked her and told her she couldn't tell him what to do. The woman claims the sexual assault lasted 45 seconds.

But here's where things get messy ... investigators say the woman claims she showered after the incident and then engaged in another consensual sex act with Comrie, which she says also got rough when he slapped her in the face. 

At that point, the woman claims she jumped off the bed and started recording audio on her phone as she accused him of sexually assaulting her. 

Cops obtained the recording and say Comrie sounds heavily intoxicated but denied any wrongdoing -- insisting the accuser had consented to everything. 

The woman left Comrie's home and went to a rape treatment center -- where examiners noted a laceration to her anus. However, examiners noted the cut was consistent with both consensual and non-consensual sex.

In the end, investigators say they can't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Comrie acted without believing he had consent ... and therefore they will not move forward with charges.

Stars and Scars You Be the Judge

Bill Cosby's retrial is curious, especially since the first jury was evenly divided. And Johnny Depp really stepped in it with his Trump assassination joke. So we gotta ask ...

Joseph Baena Shirtless Beach Jog With My Buff Bros

6/23/2017 6:28 PM PDT

Arnold Schwarzenegger's son must have learned from his old man -- you gotta get the cardio in if you wanna get ripped.

Joseph Baena wrapped up a workout session Friday with a run on the beach in Malibu ... along with a couple buddies who popped their shirts off to show off their muscles too.

This isn't the first time Joseph's shown he's a chip off the old block either. What can we say ... he gets it directly from his dad.

BET Awards Last Minute Changes To Honor Prodigy

6/24/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The BET Awards will pay tribute to Prodigy, but it won't be a major spectacle -- instead, his rap partner Havoc and Lil Kim will do the honors on their own.

Sources involved with the production tell us Kim and Havoc were late adds to the show as presenters. They will also share some personal words, paying respects to the Mobb Deep rapper. 

We're told BET Awards execs scrambled to put together a tribute performance after Prodigy's death Tuesday, but it was too late. Artitsts had already signed contracts to perform at the awards, and BET didn't want to burn bridges by changing their sets, which have been planned for weeks.

We reached out to BET to see if they've been able to make any late changes, but we haven't heard back. 

Lil Yachty Hey Denzel & Oprah ... Holla and I'll Cut My Locks!

6/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Yachty has a message for Hollywood stars, directors and moguls -- y'all should f*** with him!

The 19-year-old rapper was at LAX when our photog asked if he'd ever change his famous hair color. Yachty, it turns out, already has an age set for when he'll not only change color, but cut his locks altogether. All he needs is the right phone call from some key players in Hollywood.

Yachty says he's got range to play all kinds of roles. It's also safe to say he's a big fan of "Moonlight."

Kid's got Oscar-worthy taste.

Charlie Sheen Sued for Exposing Ex to HIV

6/23/2017 5:09 PM PDT

Charlie Sheen recklessly exposed his ex-girlfriend to HIV and had the audacity to say he was "noble" for belatedly telling her ... according to a new lawsuit.

A California woman -- known only as Jane Doe -- claims she met the "confidential male defendant" and they quickly began having sex -- eventually unprotected sex.

She never mentions Sheen by name, but she might as well have, because there are hints all over the lawsuit ... notably, that the defendant announced his HIV status on national TV on November 17, 2015. That's the day Sheen went on "Today" and revealed his HIV status.

The woman -- who says she's a Russian emigre -- claims when Sheen dropped the news to her, he dismissively told her to take 2 pills to prevent transmission. He told her the drugs were not necessary, and urged her not to believe "the convenient rumors of the medical community," saying, "You don't need to be on all that f****** s***."

She also claims he told her the "Apocalypse" had "cleansed" her soul and he knew she'd be fine.

The suit claims Sheen threw around the n-word in a big way, once calling himself "the dumbest f****** n***** in the room." He also railed against other women who accused him of exposing them to HIV, calling them, "assholes, f****** n******."

Hillary Clinton Attacks Healthcare Bill ... GOP Is the 'Death Party'

Hillary Clinton jumped off the political sidelines and fired a shot at Republicans over the new healthcare bill ... saying, in not so many words, it's gonna kill Americans.

The former candidate said the GOP will be "the death party" if they pass the proposed healthcare measure. In her tweet, she referenced an article citing Harvard researchers. Their study says the Senate bill could result in "18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026."

She also urged her followers to speak out against the bill. 

Dennis Rodman Uses Women's Restroom at Airport ... While Bumping Staind

EXCLUSIVE

He's worn dresses ... maybe that's why Dennis Rodman felt so comfortable using the women's restroom at Long Beach airport Wednesday night.

A female witness tells us she noticed Dennis in the airport around 9 PM -- but couldn't believe it when she saw The Worm walk straight into the women's restroom while blasting Staind's "It's Been Awhile" on his mini-speaker.

We're told he was inside for about a minute -- and acted normal while a bunch of confused women looked on ... some doing double takes.

Ultimately, he left without issue and went on his merry way ... continuing to play that Staind song.

Dr. Luke Settles With Kesha's Mom Drops Defamation Suit

6/23/2017 1:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Dr. Luke's nearly 3 year saga in a defamation lawsuit against Kesha's mom is finally over -- the suit's been dropped and they've reached a settlement.

TMZ broke the story ... the music producer claimed in a 2014 lawsuit that Pebe Sebert orchestrated a smear campaign of sexual lies against him. He also claimed Pebe wanted Kesha to break her contract with him, and when she couldn't, Pebe got Kesha to spread lies that he raped her.

But the parties have now agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice -- meaning it can't be refiled. Translation: They settled it, and one thing Luke got was a statement from Pebe regarding his sexual assault case with Kesha.

According to the statement ... "Pebe admits she has no firsthand knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case."

As we reported ... Pebe countersued Dr. Luke claiming he tormented and abused her by allegedly date raping her daughter. That case was dropped in April 2016.

Johnny Depp I'm Sorry, Mr. President ... I Made A Bad Joke

6/23/2017 11:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Johnny Depp is apologizing for his joke about assassinating President Trump, saying he didn't mean any harm by it.

Johnny released a statement admitting the "bad joke" he told Thursday to the Glastonbury Festival crowd was in poor taste.

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice," his apology read. "I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

Depp had joked, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"

The White House condemned Depp for the joke and called on Hollywood to speak out against this type of violent rhetoric.

Johnny Depp Once Booted from White House Reception For Showing 'Disrespect'

6/23/2017 11:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Depp's disdain for the White House runs deep ... so deep he was once corralled by Secret Service agents who refused to let him shake the President's hand.

Depp, who's taking heat for his Trump assassination crack, was at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. back in January 1988 -- yeah, we know it's the '80s -- where President and Nancy Reagan held a ceremony for the fight against AIDS.

Johnny -- who was the star of "21 Jump Street," started clowning almost from the get-go. During a private tour, he picked his nose at the podium in the Press Room and flipped off the camera outside the gate.

We're told he was in the Rose Garden when he lit up a cigarette, much to the dismay of the Secret Service.

Later, during the event, Johnny was in the Blue Room when he once again lit a ciggy ... enraging the agent.

When it came time for the receiving line to meet the Prez and First Lady, the agents told Johnny he could not participate because he had shown disrespect.

Check out the PSA.
