Brett Kavanaugh New Accuser Claims He Put His Penis in Her Face at Yale

9/23/2018 5:29 PM PDT
Breaking News

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is now facing a new allegation from another woman who says he exposed himself without her consent during their college years at Yale.

The New Yorker published a bombshell story Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh's Thursday hearing in D.C., where he's already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford ... who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and '84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her. 

Soon after, she says she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words ... when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.

She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, "Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face." Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes "After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney" Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.

As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker ... "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name--and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building--against these last-minute allegations." A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.

It's unclear if Ramirez's story (or testimony) will come into play at Thursday's hearing ... which some celebs have already written off before hearing what Blasey Ford has to say. Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump's latest nominee.

Tiger Woods Wins 1st Pro Golf Tournament ... Since 2013

Breaking News

Tiger Woods' 5-year golf tournament drought is OVER -- 'cause he just won his first PGA Tour since 2013 ... and he did it in glorious fashion.

Tiger came out on top Sunday during the PGA Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Course in Georgia, where he finished 11 under par ... and 2 strokes ahead of Billy Horschel, who came in 2nd. 

The final hole was crazy ... a massive crowd of spectators followed Tiger as he approached the green and hit his way out of a sand trap. He had a chance for birdie, but had to settle for par after he missed the hole by mere centimeters. It got the job done though ... and people lost it.

During his exit interview where he was asked what he proved to himself, Tiger said ... "It was just a grind out there, and I loved every bit of it." He went on to say about his return to form ... "At the beginning of the year, certainly, that was a tall order. But as the year progressed, and I proved that I could play, I found a swing and put pieces together. And, I knew I could do it again."

His interview was interrupted by a massive "TIGER" chant behind him, and it nearly moved TW to tears. At win #80 ... we'll say the comeback is complete.

Congrats, Tiger!

EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z and Beyonce normally give folks a front row seat to a sick performance, but they switched it up Saturday after their Rose Bowl concert and became spectators themselves.

Jay & Bey were seen at an after-party thrown on the heels of their show in Pasadena, where they sold out the Rose Bowl for night 1 of 2 of their last couple performances in L.A. Their 'On The Run II' summer tour wraps in Seattle next week. 

During the shindig, two break dancers were putting on their best moves in front the couple ... and they did not disappoint. Check out Beyonce's reaction -- she's definitely into it. Never hurts to impress Queen Bey ... we know she could always use more dancers

It's a nice change of pace for Jay and Bey, who've been putting quite a run together for some very famous audience members these last few months. Some A-listers who've enjoyed their OTR II tour ... Dez Bryant and Jerry Jones, Justin Verlander and Kate Upton ... and, of course, the Obamas

It's like Jay once said ... after the show, it's the after-party ... where we'll take in a show and break dancers are gnarly. That's how that goes, right?

Demi Lovato Smiling, Happy During Rehab Outing

EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato looked relaxed and happy Sunday as she exercised her day pass from her rehab facility ... nearly 2 months to the day after her near-fatal overdose.

The "Sober" singer was seen out in public Sunday morning near the rehab facility, where she's been since relocating from her East Coast facility. She was chatting up a lady with a cute pup, coffee in hand ... and a big grin on her face. From outward appearances ... Demi looks like she's doing great.

The morning outing comes just one day before the two-month mark of her OD. We broke the story ... Demi suffered an OD July 24 at her Hollywood Hills home, where her drug dealer supplied her with "aftermarket pills" that appeared to be laced with fentanyl.

Like we told you ... Demi's been seen in town lately with Wilmer Valderrama, who has been by her side since she was hospitalized. A source connected to Demi tells us the exes have not reignited their relationship -- it's all about friendship.

Kanye West & Saint Throw 1st Pitch For Chi-Town Showdown

9/23/2018 1:25 PM PDT

Kanye West made the most of his Chicago homecoming week by capping it off with a visit to the mound with his son, Saint, and two tosses to kick off a crosstown classic rubber match.

Ye and Saint were assigned to throw out the first pitch(es) Sunday for game 3 of the Chicago Cubs and White Sox series at Guaranteed Rate Field. Saint pitched first (getting as far as he could) ... and his pops followed up with a throw that made it to home plate.

Just the day before, Kanye took Saint out for a boys night out at The Sugar Factory, where they appeared to be getting their nosh on. Looks like Yeezy didn't want to miss out on a mirror shot with his boy.

Kanye's been in Chicago since at least Monday, and his latest excursions come on the heels of his announcement that he's moving back to his hometown and "never leaving again." We're told he plans to move his Yeezy offices from Calabasas to Chi-Town ... but still maintain his properties in L.A.

No doubt about it ... Kanye thinks about Chicago a little more than now and then these days. 

Travis Scott Mac, I Love You ... You'll Always Be My Boy

9/23/2018 11:59 AM PDT

Mac Miller might be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten -- especially not by Travis Scott ... who dedicated a touching moment to the fallen MC during his concert this weekend.

La Flame took a moment during his Vegas show Saturday night to freestyle a quick verse dedicated to Mac, who just died earlier this month. Travis raps ... "This is Superstar Boy / Malcolm that's my boy / Mac Miller I love you, always be my boy." 

He dropped a few more bars about Mac, and then transitioned into his song with SZA, "Love Galore." The audience seemed to love the shout-out as they roared in response.

Trav and Mac never rapped on a song together, but they did both drop their newest albums -- "Astroworld" and "Swimming," respectively -- on the same date last month ... August 3. It was Mac's fifth studio album, and Travis' 3rd. 

TMZ broke the story ... Mac Miller was found dead at his San Fernando Valley home, where he's believed to have overdosed. His official cause of death remains a mystery as toxicology tests are pending. 

He was 26. RIP

Jennifer Lopez All Up On the Floor ... For A-List Ladies Night

9/23/2018 11:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Everyone tends to fall for Jennifer Lopez -- just ask A-Rod -- but this weekend was different, 'cause she was actually in Vegas falling for us ... and bouncing back gracefully.

J. Lo was performing Saturday at her Vegas residency show when somewhere in the midst of all the action, she took a spill on stage, landing on her famous booty. A very helpful fan in the front row helped her get back up ... and Jenny was right back in the swing of things.

Luckily for her, it wasn't as bad of a fall as we've seen over the past year or so -- namely, Teyana Taylor nosediving into her crowd, or that Vanilla Ice fan falling into oblivion ... or even Bushwick Bill getting taken down by Treach. This was more Kesha-esque.

Even better for J. Lo ... she had a swarm of support after the show from the likes of Jessica Alba, Dua Lipa, Becky G, Sofia Vergara and, of course, Mr. Rodriguez himself ... all of whom went backstage to show some love and pose for a photo-op. 

Two things we've learned here -- it pays to have your ladies nearby after a slight mishap. It also pays to be stage side if Jen ever needs your assistance. Don't wash that hand, bro.

Drake Serious Illness Triggered Concert Cancellations

9/23/2018 7:43 AM PDT

Drake was seriously ill this week ... something his team didn't want out, but now the man himself is acknowledging it.

Drake canceled 2 Miami concerts Friday and Saturday at the American Airlines Arena. We were told Friday there was an issue with production, but that's clearly not the case.

Drake just went public, saying "I got so ill so fast I had never experienced anything like that in my life." 

It seems Drake was actually hospitalized by what he said ... "Thank you to the two doctors and nurse that helped me with round the clock care." It's possible, of course, he was treated at a hotel, but with 2 doctors and a nurse ... sounds pretty serious.

He then expresses gratitude to the man upstairs, saying, "Thank you God for allowing me to recover and continue."

North West I'm a Model Kid Now!!!

9/23/2018 7:13 AM PDT

North West had a distinctly Michael Jackson vibe Saturday as she marched down the runway at a celeb fashion show. 

The 5-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made her modeling debut at the L.O.L. Surprise Fashion Show in Santa Monica.

She wore what looks like a "Thriller" getup as she walked the runway with purpose.

There were other celeb offspring as well ... Busy Philipps' daughter, Birdie, and Sara Foster's daughter, Valentina, were also front and center at the children's fashion event.

Kim and Kanye have been in Chicago and have been spending lots of time there ... this after Kanye said he and the fam were moving to Chicago. As we reported, they will keep their L.A. home and shuttle back and forth, but Kanye's serious about planting roots in the Windy City.

Serena Williams I'm Shakin' Off a Bad Month ... On 'Lip Sync Battle'

9/23/2018 7:19 AM PDT

Serena Williams dropped it low during a taping for an upcoming episode of "Lip Sync Battle."

The tennis star shakes and grooves to Beyonce's hit single, "Sorry," off her Lemonade album.

In case you didn't know ... Serena was also in the music video for "Sorry."

Serena Williams is coming off a tough month after losing to Naomi Osaka at the US Open ... a match laced in controversy after Serena was docked a game after getting into it with the ump. Then an Australian paper, The Herald Sun, published a racist cartoon of Serena.

Interesting song choice ... Serena could be telling us how she feels about the whole US Open thing.

Michelle Obama I Do Weddings Too!!!

Michelle Obama is about to launch her stadium tour which should rival any rock band, but she has a much more intimate side hustle ... officiating weddings.

The former First Lady did the honors Saturday in Chicago for Stephanie Rivkin and Joel Sircus. The bride's pop is the Deputy Mayor of Chicago and, as you know, Michelle has deep roots in Chi-Town.

BTW ... not that it's relevant, but both the bride and groom graduated cum laude from Yale.

Michelle will hit 10 U.S. cities for her stadium tour to launch the sale of her memoir, "Becoming." The price of admission is crazy ... it starts at $30 with the top price of $3k for a pre-show meet-and-greet.

Drake Best View in the Six ... From My New Ballin' Basement!!!

9/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Drake loves to sit courtside at basketball games and now he's bringing that action to his brand new Toronto mansion with a near-NBA-sized basketball court ... in the basement!

Drake's under-construction pad will be lavish even by his standards because it's got a 15,000 square foot basement. The 6 God's plan for that level alone? Spa surrounded by 2 saunas and a massage room ... pool WITH a hot tub ... and snack lounge suspended ABOVE the b-ball court.

That's a check, check, check and check ... according to Drizzy's building permits filed with the city.

Above ground, it's just as sweet. He's gonna have a rooftop terrace with another hot tub, a sprawling outdoor swimming area flanked by bars and massive projection screens. Translation: Best. House. Party. Ever. 

Of course, he'll also have the standards: wine and champagne bar, home theater, recording studio and award ROOM (when a shelf alone won't cut it).   

Architect Ferris Rafauli designed the mansion, and it's in the same uber-exclusive neighborhood where Prince once owned a home.
