Bill Cosby

Copped to Using Quaaludes ...

And Sedatives on Women

breaking news

0706-bill-cosby-tmz-01

Bill Cosby bought Quaaludes and used Benadryl to knock out at least one woman ... something he admitted during a deposition for the sexual assault lawsuit a Temple University employee filed against him.

Cosby gave the shocking testimony in 2005. He eventually settled the case with Andrea Constand for an undisclosed amount of money ... but documents connected to the case were just released today.

During the depo ... Cosby said he had purchased the 'ludes with the intent to give them to women he wanted to have sex with. He also said he had given Constand 3 half-pills of Benadryl.

The AP filed docs asking a court to release the testimony, and Cosby's attorneys tried to have it blocked ... claiming revealing the material would embarrass him.

Of course, Cosby has since been accused of sexual assault by dozens of other women. He has never been criminally charged.

Jerry Weintraub ... the producer behind the "Ocean's 11" remakes, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley died today at the age of 77 ... TMZ has learned.

Weintraub had been in Santa Barbara with family -- and multiple sources tell us he died around 12:45 PM while at a hospital in the area. His reps are saying he suffered cardiac arrest. 

Weintraub's been a giant in music and movies for decades -- producing, promoting, and managing for everyone from Sinatra to Led Zeppelin ... to Bob Dylan, Elvis and John Denver

One of the biggest feathers in his cap was luring Ole Blue Eyes out of retirement. Sinatra actually reached out to Jerry in 1968 ... after seeing the success he had guiding Elvis' career. 

In addition to the 'Ocean's' movies, starring Brad Pitt and George Clooney -- Weintraub produced all the "Karate Kid" flicks and the Chevy Chase classic, "Vegas Vacation." He was also working on the new "Tarzan" movie, due out next year.

Jerry won 3 Emmy awards during his career, dating back to 1975. His most recent was for producing "Behind the Candelabra" with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.

0706-weintraub-clooney-getty-01Clooney said, "Today our friend died. To his family and friends, Amal and I send our love. And to those who didn't know him we send our deepest sympathy. You would have loved him."

The last time we got Jerry was back in March, and the legendary producer of major sequels ... gave us his take on the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

Jenelle Evans

Sorry I'm Not Sorry

About Explosive Video With My Dog

7/6/2015 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans never thought the Internet would explode over her dog playing with fireworks in a gnarly 4th of July video -- because, as she puts it ... they do it on "America's Funniest Home Videos."

Jenelle tells TMZ that it was all a misunderstanding after letting her dog, Jax, play fetch with a lit firework during her party in Myrtle Beach. On a video she posted of the stunt ... it sounds like she tells Jax to fetch the firework -- and that's what got people pissed. 

Jenelle deleted her post off social media once the backlash started. She tells us she thought the vid was innocent, and adds ...  she saw the same thing on 'AFV.' 

Don't get it twisted though -- she says she's NOT sorry about letting Jax play with explosives, but she's sorry people were offended.

She insists the dog is fine, and she'd pull the same stunt next July.

Potter's got moves of her own -- she's known to kick up a heel and scale a piano in one of her token short dresses -- but check out her review of 71-year-old Mick ... sounds like she's no match for him, or so she says.
