Tavis Smiley I'm Fighting Back Against PBS!!! Denies Sexual Misconduct

12/14/2017 6:45 AM PST
Breaking News

Tavis Smiley says PBS railroaded him during its investigation into claims he was having sex with staffers, and he's vowing to take a stand against the network's "overreaction."

The talk show host, who PBS suspended Wednesday, says he only learned of the PBS investigation through former staffers who let him know they'd been contacted. Smiley says he confronted his bosses, and only then did investigators talk to him ... for 3 hours.

It's clear Smiley isn't happy with what went down -- he says investigators refused to talk to his current staff or accept documentation supporting his side of the story. He insists he "never groped, inappropriately exposed myself or coerced any colleague in the workplace ever in my 30 year career."

Smiley accuses PBS of running a sloppy investigation and says he will fight back.

He also says there's a bigger picture conversation to be had about how men and women should be able to interact in the workplace.

12/14/2017 7:11 AM PST

Call Kevin Hart a cheater, a womanizer ... whatever you want, but calling his wife a homewrecker crosses the line, and he says it nearly made him flip out.

Kevin was on the Power 105's 'Breakfast Club' Thursday morning and opened up about his sex tape scandal, saying he knew he'd have to take his lumps -- but people saying the whole mess was karma for Eniko was too much to handle.

It's obvious he's blaming one person for beating that drum -- his ex-wife, Torrei Hart.

You gotta see how Kev walked the line ... saying he doesn't want to bad-mouth Torrei, but he's gotta defend his current wife against a label he insists she doesn't deserve.

Omarosa My Next Big Move ... Don't Rule Out Politics!

12/14/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa's out at the White House, but she's not on the outs with government, and in fact, is already eyeing other federal positions ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... Omarosa and President Trump say they're on good terms after her exit from  the administration, and we're told she's optimistic their relationship will help her down the road.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... O believes she'd be a good candidate for an undersecretary position. On the more ambitious side, she's eyeing an ambassador role with Nigeria ... due to her heritage on her father's side. 

We're told she's also open to a gig in her new home state of Florida ... as a Senior Regional Appointment Person. It's basically a local liaison for Trump's administration. Even if she bolts from government altogether, Omarosa wouldn't go too far because plan B is pursuing a lobbyist gig.

Bottom line ... she's caught the political bug. 

NFL's Damontre Moore In Crazy Street Brawl ... Possible Gunshot Fired

12/14/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Just 4 days before Damontre Moore was cut by the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL defensive end was in a crazy street brawl in Texas ... and it sounds like someone fired a gun. 

TMZ Sports obtained footage from the Oct. 20 incident outside of Bottled Blonde beer garden -- where 25-year-old Moore was getting into it with a group of guys. 

One witness tells us the fight was over a woman -- but the details are unclear. 

What we do know ... Moore tries to fight two guys -- and ends up getting jumped pretty bad. One guy puts Moore in a headlock while 2 other guys swing on him. 

Eventually, Moore gets out -- and tries to jump through the sunroof of a Porsche to try and punch the fleeing attackers. As the car peels out, you can hear what sounds like a gunshot. 

Cops were called to the scene at 2:10 AM for possible shots fired -- but everyone left, so no arrests were made. 

Moore was a member of the Cowboys at the time of the incident -- but was cut 4 days later, reportedly for "football reasons" ... to make room for another player on the roster. 

We reached out to Moore and the Cowboys for comment -- so far, no word back from either.

Morgan Spurlock Admits Past Sexual Misconduct 'I am Part of the Problem'

12/13/2017 6:35 PM PST

Morgan Spurlock is coming clean about his history ... regarding sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and even an accusation of rape.

The famed documentary filmmaker posted a shocking list of confessions Wednesday, including a detailed description of a sexual encounter with a woman he had in college that led to him being accused of rape.

Spurlock also admits to paying off a former female assistant who he often called "hot pants" or "sex pants" about 8 years ago to settle a sexual harassment claim and keep it quiet.

The "Super Size Me" star says he's not been an innocent bystander amid the wave of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood and beyond, and has wondered ... "When will they come for me?"

He adds ... "If I'm going to truly represent myself as someone who has built a career on finding the truth, then it's time for me to be truthful as well."

Spurlock drops another bombshell too -- he says he was sexually abused as a boy -- before vowing to be part of the solution from now on.

Check out his full statement above.

Nelly Rape Case Closed

12/13/2017 4:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly's fully off the hook now in that alleged rape in Washington State -- prosecutors say they can't proceed ... TMZ has learned.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office tells us the alleged victim's refusal to cooperate made it impossible for them to go forward with charging Nelly with any crime. 

As we reported ... the woman who originally claimed Nelly raped her on his tour bus told police she did not want to press charges. Her attorney said the pressure of accusing a huge star like Nelly was just too much for her client.  

Omarosa Secret Service Says We Gave Her the Electronic Boot

12/13/2017 4:21 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Omarosa is officially persona non grata at 1600 Penn ... according to the Secret Service.

The agency confirms it deactivated Omarosa's pass which had granted her access to White House grounds. It's an odd announcement, considering President Trump and WH spokespeople have gone out of their way to say she wasn't fired.

Our sources tell us Omarosa's swift exit was prompted by a blow up during the White House holiday party Tuesday night. The Secret Service denies its agents physically removed her from the event. 

As we first reported he would, Trump tweeted a very brief -- 11 words strong -- but kind send-off Wednesday afternoon.

Like we said, it's just odd -- the Secret Service statement about her access definitely flies in the face of the White House saying Omarosa would stay on until Jan. 20.

Left hand, meet the right?
