EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian
needs to run for the hills -- away from French Montana -- and that's exactly what her family told her during a heart-to-heart talk Wednesday.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... the Kardashians believe French has been unfaithful to Khloe, and their evidence centers around his recent trip to Dubai.  

1126-khloe-kardashian-french-montana-dubai-SUB-INSTAGRAM-01
We're told the family believes French was hooking up with a very pretty woman during the trip, and tried to use Kim as a cover. We know they told Khloe French sought out Kim during the trip so Khloe would see pics of the 2 of them and think he was just hanging with her sis ... nothing nefarious.

We're told the Kardashians say French's plan unraveled when Kim came home and told Khloe she was literally with French 10 seconds here and there. The family is convinced he used Kim to deceive Khloe.

Several NFL Stars

Ray Rice Is Welcome On Our Teams

59 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0908-ray-rice-getty-03Multiple active NFL stars from multiple NFL teams tell TMZ Sports they would ABSOLUTELY welcome Ray Rice on their squads ... because as one player put it, "everyone deserves a second chance."

Of course Ray is now eligible to sign with a team ... if a team decides to make an offer ... and we're guessing there are several owners currently trying to take the temperatures of their players and fans to see how signing Rice would go over.

Of the NFL stars we spoke to ... all of them said they were open to playing with the former All Pro running back.

"I know Ray and his wife. I believe they've forgiven each other," one prominent player told us ... adding, "I would accept him, and I think that my teammates would accept him."

Another major NFL star told us, "I believe that everyone in life deserves a second chance."

A third player -- who played with Rice at one point in his career -- says, "He seems very remorseful. As much as I am against domestic violence, I do believe in second chances. No more chances after that, though."

There are plenty of teams that could use a running back right now -- and with playoffs right around the corner, it'll be interesting to see if anyone bites.

Scott Stapp

Wife Wants 60-Day Psych Hold

He's Trying to Detox Himself

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Stapp
is irrational, incoherent, delusional, psychotic, dangerous and needs to be involuntarily committed to a mental facility again and he's in great danger because he's trying to detox himself without help ... this according to his estranged wife and mother-in-law.

Jaclyn Stapp and Hayat Nesheiwat filed legal docs Wednesday ... trying to convince a judge Scott needs to be committed for 60 days ... this after he was released from a 3-day psych hold a short time ago.

The women echo what cops said before getting the 3-day hold ... they say Scott refuses to get help and is deep into drugs, including amphetamines, steroids, weed, coke, PCP, Ketamine and others.

They say the Creed frontman has been leaving messages that his son's school is about to be attacked by ISIS, biological weapons are on the way, he's been poisoned and he's threatened to hurt people. He's also drained his bank account and is living out of his truck.

The women say Scott is lying on the video he released -- that he's clean -- and the real issue they say is that he's trying to detox himself which if true can sometimes be fatal.

Scott's wife and mother-in-law also say they fear he'll harm himself or others if he's not committed.

Ex-'Housewives' Star

Makes Promises Hollower Than Her Left Leg

... Scorned Agent Claims

11/29/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126-aviva-drescher-and-reid-drescher-tmz-02
Fired 'Housewives' star Aviva Drescher got paid $100K to star on another reality show ... then screwed over the agent who got her the gig -- at least that's how the pissed off agent sees it.

Gina Rodriguez claims she booked Drescher and her husband, Reid, on "Marriage Bootcamp" and says the Dreschers promised her a 10% commission -- which amounted to $10K.

In a lawsuit, Rodriguez -- who's also repped Octomom and Michael Lohan -- says Drescher slandered her in interviews ... by calling her "sleazy" and a "wannabe agent."  

Rodriguez says she only got $2,500 of her commission, so she is suing for the balance ... and for damages to her reputation. We tried contacting the Dreschers ... but no response so far.

Tip for Gina -- beware of flying limbs.

Ray Rice

Fantasy Football Boom

Becomes #1 Added Player In Minutes

11/28/2014 2:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128_ray_rice_fantasy_football_composite
Didn't take long for Fantasy Football owners to forgive Ray Rice -- because just hours after he was reinstated, Ray has become the MOST picked up player in Yahoo! fantasy leagues.

As we previously reported, Ray's fantasy stock sank like a stone after TMZ Sports published the inside-the-elevator footage back in September.

But now, according to Yahoo! "Transaction Trends" page, Ray has already been added to more than 168,000 fantasy teams ... the #1 added player today ... BY FAR.

In fact, the #2 guy is Vikings running back Matt Asiata who was added to 14,000 teams.

Funny thing is ... Ray hasn't been signed to a real team yet.

Clearly, 168k people think he'll find a new squad before the season ends.

'Real World' Star Ryan Knight

Autopsy Complete

No Cause of Death Found

11/28/2014 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128_ryan_knight_getty"Real World" star Ryan Knight's autopsy was completed Friday morning ... and no immediate cause of death was found -- but police say he had been complaining about stomach issues.

Police in Kenosha, WI say they attempted to revive Knight when they arrived at his friends home yesterday morning ... but they were unsuccessful. They say there were no obvious signs of injuries to Knight -- but according to Knight's father he had complained about stomach issues in the past 2 days. 

Cops also say no drugs were found on scene ... even though they were told he had been "partying hard" the night before.

As we previously reported ... Knight was out Wednesday night with a bunch of people and ended up at a friend's house where he was discovered dead and covered in vomit. Friends tell us he had taken "some pills" but they were not specific.

Police say Knight's cause of death will have to wait until they get toxicology results ... because no "anatomical cause of death” was found.

Ray Rice

Wins Appeal

Indefinite Suspension Overturned

11/28/2014 12:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128_ray_rice_tmz-2
Ray Rice just won a HUGE victory ... his indefinite suspension has been overturned.

Short story ... a just ruled NFL Commissioner Rodger Goodell abused his authority when he changed Rice's discipline from a 2-game suspension to an indefinite one.  

The judge ruled Rice had told the truth when he was initially interviewed by Goodell and company and the Commish had no right to alter the punishment after TMZ posted the elevator video.

It could be something of a hollow victory ... Rice is now a man without a team, and his prospects of new NFL employment is iffy at best.

In decision, U.S. District Judge Barbara S. Jones explained ... "Rice did not mislead the Commissioner at the June 16th meeting, and therefore, that the imposition of a second suspension based on the same incident and the same known facts about the incident, was arbitrary."

"The Commissioner needed to be fair and consistent in his imposition of discipline. Moreover, any failure on the part of the League to understand the level of violence was not due to Rice's description of the event but to the inadequacy of words to convey the seriousness of domestic violence. That the League did not realize the severity of the conduct without a visual record also speaks to their admitted failure in the past to sanction this type of conduct more severely."

Rice issued a statement saying he's thankful.
