Jared from Subway

FBI Raid Home in

Child Porn Investigation

7/7/2015 5:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0707-jared-fogle-twitter-02update_graphic_red_bar7:30 AM PT -- We've obtained the criminal complaint against Taylor ... and it says police recovered a 4 GB thumb drive and his employer, the Jared Foundation, was listed in a file name. Inside that file was a folder labeled, "Good stuff." Cops found a bunch of child pornography in that folder.

Since Taylor mixed work files with child porn ... it could explain why the FBI is searching Fogle's home. Jared himself, is not mentioned in the docs police found at Taylor's home office.update_grey_gray_barSubway spokesperson Jared Fogle's home was raided Tuesday morning by FBI agents conducting a child pornography investigation.

Jared was seen walking into his home outside Indianapolis with one of the agents ... and investigators have a truck parked in his driveway. We've learned Indiana State Police are also on the scene.

Russel Taylor, the former director of Fogle's charity foundation -- which is unaffiliated with Subway -- was arrested in April for possessing and producing child porn. Investigators reportedly found more than 500 videos in his home.

Fogle said his foundation was severing all ties with Taylor immediately after his arrest. It's unclear if this morning's raid is connected to the charges against Taylor.

George Lopez

There Are Enough Racists

For Donald Trump to Win

7/7/2015 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Lopez is taking a stand against Donald Trump -- and asking all Latinos to boycott him -- but also admits Trump's "punking" all the other Republican candidates, and might even win.

Lopez blasted Trump Monday afternoon in Bev Hills ... telling us he's personally done with Trump -- he won't golf at his courses anymore, and wouldn't even consider replacing him on "Celebrity Apprentice" because he's not taking Trump's leftovers. 

Watch, George clearly ain't voting Trump, but acknowledges there are plenty of people who will -- and even warns Donald ... Jeb isn't the Bush he needs to worry about. 


Ariana Grande

Tongues New BF ...

And an Innocent Donut!!

7/7/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ariana Grande's new boyfriend got upstaged by her tongue -- which got dangerously close to some powdered donuts ... pissing off the people who busted their asses making 'em.

Ok, first the BF -- Ricky Alvarez, he's one of Ariana's backup dancers, and you can see them engage in some serious mouth-to-mouth PDA in this security cam video ... which wouldn't have come to light if not for the donut incident.

Sources inside Wolfee Donuts in Lake Elsinore, CA tell us the couple came in on Saturday, and decided to play truth or dare with the goods -- daring each other to lick powdered jelly donuts on the counter.

Hard to tell if their tongues actually make contact, but our sources in the shop say it was definitely too close for their liking -- especially since Ariana pulled the stunt when no one was looking, and they would've tossed the contaminated donuts if they knew.

Then again ... plenty of people might pay extra for a Grande-licked pastry.

Chris Tucker

Sued Over Netflix Special ...

Days Before Release

7/7/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Chris Tucker should be celebrating this week ... his Netflix stand-up comedy special comes out Friday -- which would be awesome, except for the fact he's getting sued for it. 

Comedian Terry Hodges is suing Netflix and Tucker, claiming he's done a ton of work for Tucker on this special -- like editing, writing, acting, and producing -- but hasn't been paid in years. That's right ... YEARS. Hodges says he and Chris started working on the material in 2008! 

Hodges says he's racked up $66k in fees, during trips to Philadelphia, L.A., and Atlanta -- and hasn't been regularly paid since 2011. On top of that, he says Tucker promised to make him a co-producer ... which would entitle him to a little back end, but that also fell through.  

Tucker's attorney Marty Singer says, "This lawsuit is absurd and completely without merit. We fully expect this case to be thrown out by the court." 

Ex 'Love & Hip Hop' Star

Not Just a Rumor ...

I'm Pregnant and Benzino's the Dad!

7/7/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0706-benzino-althea-tmz-01Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Althea Eaton and Benzino are expecting their first child together -- and this time they mean it.

Sources close to the fiery couple tell TMZ, Althea’s 5 months deep, and expecting a baby boy in November.

Pregnancy rumblings first surfaced in March, but only because Althea blasted the news out on social media. The confusion started when she and Benzino deleted the pregnancy announcement ... leaving fans to wonder if something went wrong.

They've been mum on the topic ever since.

It's a big step for the couple. Their tumultuous relationship was well documented on 'LHHA' until they were kicked off the show after season 3 for the now infamous reunion show brawl and death threats against co-stars. 

Diaper duty should be fun ... for the hot-tempered duo.

Bill Cosby

Copped to Using Quaaludes ...

And Sedatives on Women

7/6/2015 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news


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

'Oceans 11' Mega Producer Dies at 77

7/6/2015 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


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.
