George Clooney is getting a big discount on booze for his wedding, with the help of best friend Rande Gerber ... who's flying more than 50 cases of tequila to Italy for the big shindig a week from Saturday.
TMZ got video Monday of Randy leaving L.A. for Italy in a private jet ... loaded with at least 50 cases of Casamigos tequila ... the company owned by George and Rande.
The video is fantastic ... Rande drives up in a blacked-out black Mercedes right to his jet, where he inspects the precious cargo ... then has one of the guys cut open 2 boxes. Cindy Crawford's hubby then removes one bottle of Reposado and one bottle of Blanco ... then proudly fist pumps them as he boards the jet.
There are numerous reports in Italy ... the wedding is set for a week from Monday at Cipriani hotel in Venice.
Arrivederci ... and recuerdos a todos.
We Got the Pictures
And It Looks Like Sex
9/17/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The "Django Unchained" actress who cried racism against the LAPD ... claiming they harassed and hurt her because she was just making out with making out with her white boyfriend in a car -- has some explaining to do, because we obtained pictures that seem to show A LOT more than sucking face.
The pictures were taken Thursday outside the CBS lot in Studio City. You see Daniele Watts straddling BF Brian -- their hands steadying themselves around the sunroof.
An eyewitness who saw Daniele and Brian as he worked in a nearby office tells TMZ ... Brian was sitting in the passenger seat with his feet on the curb and Daniele was straddling him with her shirt pulled up -- breasts exposed. The eyewitness says she was grinding on top of him, rocking back and forth.
Someone from the office went down and asked Daniele and Brian to stop because everyone in the office could see them but they continued.
The eyewitnesses says Brian then began "horizontally bongoing her boobs back and forth." He says she eventually reached into the center console, grabbed a tissue, wiped him down and then herself and tossed it on the grass.
Someone from the office called the cops and made an indecent exposure complaint. TMZ obtained police audio when the cops came out, and Daniele played the race and fame card.
Beyonce & Jay Z
Eyeing Insane $85 Million Mansion
9/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce and Jay Z could be close to setting up shop on the west coast ... after taking multiple visits to a ridiculous $85 million Beverly Hills estate.
Our real estate sources tell us ... while they were living in L.A. over the summer they checked out a brand new 23,000 square foot cliffside palace twice.
In addition to panoramic views of Malibu and downtown L.A., the 8-bedroom, 15-bathroom house features an attached 16-car garage, infinity pool, wine cellar, and a 24-seat movie theater.
Jay and Bey got a taste of L.A. life this summer while leasing a mansion in exclusive Holmby Hills for a whopping $200,000/month! The mortgage on the Bev Hills crib would likely cost 'em way more than that.
Still, chump change for them.
'Glee Project' Contestant
Yells at Cops ...
I'm Black, You Want To Shoot Me?!
9/17/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
An ex-contestant on "The Glee Project" tried to taunt Pittsburgh cops into shooting him -- and sparking a race riot -- during an arrest he claims ONLY went down because he's Black.
Bryce Ross-Johnson was thrown out of a bar Saturday night after scuffling with a bouncer for wearing a hat -- a violation of the dress code -- according to the criminal complaint, obtained by TMZ.
Police say when they arrived ... Bryce was antagonistic and taunted, "Hey, I'm African-American, you want to shoot me?" -- and, "Why don't you shoot me, that's what you do to black guys, right?"
Cops kept cool, and no shots were fired ... but the 25-year-old former "Glee" wannabe got arrested for public drunkenness, assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and defiant trespass.
Ross-Johnson thinks the white officers and white bouncer targeted him because of race. He admits blurting the racial taunts -- but only because cops were asking him "stupid stuff" like what drugs he was on, and when was he last in prison.

52 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
The Minnesota Vikings have reversed their decision on Adrian Peterson and decided to bar him from all team activities until his child abuse case is resolved.
Vikings owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf announced they were placing Peterson on the NFL's exempt/commissioner's permission list, saying in a statement, "After giving the situation additional thought, we have decided this is the appropriate course of action for the organization and for Adrian."
The team had deactivated Peterson for last week's game following the allegations against their star running back, but on Monday announced their plans to play him this coming Sunday.
Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, described the move as "the best possible outcome given the circumstances."

Bobby Womack's Family
If You Think We're Broke Now ...
9/17/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Singer Bobby Womack left behind a massive debt when he died in June -- including a huge child support judgment -- and now his family is trying to figure out how to pay it.
Bobby's widow, Regina, filed court docs in L.A. showing he owed $250K in back child support for two sons living in Ft. Wayne, IN -- one is 14 and the other an adult. He also had an unpaid loan for $400K when he died.
But Womack didn't leave much in the way of assets -- according to the docs he had $52K in cash and $7,250 in personal belongings, which included some jewelry and a 1974 Buick.
Regina says Womack also had music rights and royalties valued around $350K -- which will help pay down the debt -- if she can capitalize on renewed interest in his music since his death.
But Regina's a realist ... admitting the value of Bobby's music could fade quickly. In other words, help a sister out ... buy Bobby now!

Linkin Park Fans
Too Young & Drunk, You're
Sunk With Cops
9/16/2014 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Linkin Park's teenage fans will be shown the door en masse Tuesday night ... if they don't obey the zero tolerance underage drinking policy at the band's SoCal concert.
Chula Vista PD just announced the band's gig at the Sleep Train Amphitheater tonight would be patrolled by extra cops looking to boot underage boozers ... inside and outside the venue. Illegal party animals will also be ticketed.
CVPD says the 21 and over crowd will also get 86'd immediately if they're visibly wasted. No warnings, no second chances ... and no refunds.
The venue's getting famous for its tough stance against concert boozers -- as cops went into crackdown mode earlier this year for Journey, Blake Shelton, One Republic, Nine Inch Nails, Rascal Flatts, and ... for some strange reason ... those always-wild Dave Matthews Band fans.
LP fans, you've been warned -- don't get sloshed before you mosh.
