Ray Rice

Some People Will NEVER Forgive Me

... and Now I Know Why

8/4/2015 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Ray Rice is no longer just insisting he's a changed man -- he also understands why the images of him knocking out his wife ... are all some people will ever think of when they see him, on or off a football field.

Rice spoke to ESPN's Outside the Lines -- about his attempts to make a comeback in the NFL, and in life. Rice said, "Over time I want to be able to rewrite the script to tell my daughter ... 'Y'know, Daddy made the worst decision of his life, but this is what I did going forward."

He also said he understands how serious domestic violence issues are now, and assured victims he'll never take that for granted.

Rice added, "If you have never seen what domestic violence looks like, and you look at my video I can understand why some people will never forgive me."

Rice is a free agent -- eligible to be signed by any NFL team, but no takers yet.


Elon Musk

Third Time's a Charm ...

Pulls Plug on Divorce Again!

8/4/2015 3:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-elon-musk-talulah-musk-TMZ-GETTY-01Billionaire PayPal and Tesla founder Elon Musk isn't quite ready to legally cut ties from his wife -- he's ditching plans to divorce actress Talulah Riley ... whom he already divorced once before. 

Musk filed for divorce on January 1, 2015, but now he's followed up by filing a request to dismiss the divorce ... and the new docs indicate Talulah's on board with the reversal. 

Musk and Riley initially married in 2010, but divorced two years later. They remarried in July 2013, only to hit the skids again. 

All this indecision has hit Musk where it really hurts -- he's paid her settlements of $4.2 million and $16 mil for each split. Then again, he's reportedly worth $14 billion ... so, it can't hurt THAT much.

We've reached out to Elon to see if this is a full reconciliation, but no word back.

Exclusive Details

0804-pierce-brosnan-SPLASH-01Pierce Brosnan tried to board a plane Sunday afternoon with a knife in his bag, but 007 couldn't slip it by TSA agents ... who called him out on it. 

A TSA official from the Burlington International Airport in Vermont tells TMZ ... it is unclear if Brosnan knew the knife was in his carry-on bag, but once they saw the weapon ... they pulled the bag aside and called over Brosnan. 

The official says they gave Brosnan the option to surrender the knife, or put it in his checked baggage. He took door #2, and went on his way. 

No arrest. No citation.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

I Guarantee Victory ...

Over Andre Berto

8/4/2015 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0804-mayweather-berto-promo-instagram-01Floyd Mayweather Jr. is officially confirming what TMZ Sports first told you -- he's giving Andre Berto a shot at the title next month. 

Floyd just posted a promotional poster for the Sept. 12th Las Vegas bout on his Instagram.  

We broke the story more than 2 weeks ago ... when the deal was actually inked.

As usual, the 48-0 Floyd is feeling confident. He boasted on his IG post, "September 12, 2015 for number 49. Come be part of the history." 

Of course, Berto's no slouch at 33-3. Place your wagers. 


Kylie Jenner

I Don't Want to Be on Camera ...

No, Really!

8/4/2015 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-kylie-jenner-getty-01Kylie Jenner is making Kardashian-Jenner family history by trying to AVOID a camera -- as part of her car accident lawsuit.

Jenner is looking to get out of giving a videotaped deposition related to her August 2013 crash ... which happened just 18 days after she got her license.

In new court docs, Jenner says the depo is unnecessary since she's accepted blame all along for the accident. Jenner claims she's offered to settle the suit for $20,000 ... but the victim has refused and insists on dragging this thing into court

Jenner thinks this is really just a play to get publicity for the case ... possibly, by leaking the taped depo. She wants the judge to 86 plans to record her testimony ... or at least, keep it sealed.

She must be getting legal advice from Bieber and Lil Wayne.

'Bachelor In Paradise' Wedding


The Knot Was Not Tied

8/4/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0803-bachelor-in-paradise-fake-wedding-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-01The couple that got married on the season premiere of the "Bachelor In Paradise" took everyone for a ride because TMZ has learned the whole thing was nothing more than a ratings ploy.

Last season's "success story" Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd made everyone believe they were taking the plunge with an emotional beach wedding near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, but we’re told it was NOT legally binding.

According to our sources the couple doesn't have a marriage license in either Mexico or the U.S. 

We're told a real marriage won't be happening anytime soon either since Marcus is away finishing up his Coast Guard training  ... so the 'Bachelor' franchise success ratio is still at 5/34.

A little over 10% ... the odds were never in their favor.

Kelly Osbourne Misspeak

Trump Needs Latinos ...

To Clean His Toilet

8/4/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Osbourne stepped into it on "The View" Tuesday, challenging Donald Trump's statement about Mexicans and asking if he has his way ... who will clean his toilet?

Osbourne quipped, "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?" 

Rosie Perez challenged Kelly, who immediately tried to clarify. Rosie tweeted after the show, "My apologizes @KellyOsbourne, I took your point wrong - #TrumpLatinos. My Bad. You're heart is so pure and righteous. I adore you." 

For her part, Osbourne wrote about the flub later, saying, "I should have known better as I was on The View and it was live. I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. It is my hope that this situation will open up a conversation about immigration and the Latin community as a whole. By the way I clean my own f**king toilets."



Lenny Kravitz

Exposes Junk

Leather Pants FAIL!!!

8/4/2015 8:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-lenny-kravitz-rexusa-02Lenny Kravitz had the worst wardrobe malfunction of all-time -- or maybe the best -- when his leather pants ripped completely open onstage ... and his junk fell out. 

Luckily, Lenny had a back-up pair of pants during his Monday show in Stockholm -- so he was able to do a quick wardrobe change and finish the concert. Even luckier ... he's got no reason to be shy.



Kim Richards

Homeless, Living Out of Car

At Time of Arrest

8/4/2015 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim Richards was living out of her car when she was arrested Sunday for shoplifting at Target ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the family tell us, Kim had been house-hopping since leaving rehab last month. She quickly ran out of friends and relatives who would extend themselves, and has been homeless ever since.

We're told Kim has been "self-medicating" recently, and although it's unclear if she was under the influence when she allegedly stole $600 worth of goods from Target, her conduct was truly bizarre. One law enforcement source says she left the store with more than 50 items in her shopping cart.

Kim's family does not know what to do ... they want to help but it's unclear at this point what can be done to help Kim.

Kanye & Will Smith

Drake Is Sooo Funny!!

8/4/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake didn't only kill Meek Mill onstage at OVO Fest  ... he burned him backstage too -- sharing a HUGE laugh with Kanye West and Will Smith.

Rumor is ... the superstars went all LMFAO over a meme Drake used to mock his rival. Check out the video ... it's hard to make out what's on Will's iPhone screen, but THEY think it's hysterical.

What is 100% clear -- Will looks really tight with Toronto's favorite son! Damn, Meek.

So much for, "In West Philadelphia born and raised ..."

Mariah Carey


Who ... Me?

8/4/2015 8:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey isn't ready to talk marriage to James Packer just yet ... at least not publicly. 

Mimi dined out Monday night at Mastro's in Beverly Hills where our photog pretty slickly tried to get the scoop on whether she and her billionaire boyfriend are getting ready to walk down the aisle. 

Check it out ... her response is hardly convincing. She did sound excited about her new track with French Montana and Justin Bieber -- but she's not getting new rocks out of them.

Nice try, MC ... but we know who's really buttering that bread.

In all, a man and women died. At least 3 others are hospitalized.

It's unclear if Drake was in the club when the shooting erupted.

It's not the first time this has happened at Muzik. A man was shot at last year's OVO Fest after-party.
