Corinne & DeMario We're Not Dating!! Disney Pics are a Fairy Tale

9/26/2017 12:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson looked like they were living happily ever after at Disneyland, but the pics don't tell the REAL story ... not to DeMario, anyway.

Sources close to DeMario tell TMZ ... he and Corinne are NOT dating or even hooking up, despite the cozy Disney shots of the ex-"Bachelor in Paradise" stars holding hands and getting touchy-feely on rides.

We're told the photos snapped a brief moment where DeMario and Corinne just happened to touch hands for a split second, but it definitely wasn't any kind of romantic hand-holding as implied in the photos.

Our sources say even DeMario's fake chomping at her arm was just playful banter between friends. Of course, it's no small feat for them to reach friendship level ... considering she all but insinuated he had sexually assaulted her.

We're told DeMario doesn't want this getting twisted -- he's single ... straight-up.

EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives' star Vicki Gunvalson isn't doing a damn thing to shut down the rumor that's become a big thing on the show ... that Tamra Judge's husband, Eddie, might be gay.

The "OG from the OC" caught some heat this season when Tamra found out Vicki and other cast members were insinuating Eddie had made out with a man years ago. Vicki told us Tamra's got no one to blame but herself for this coming up on the show.

As for her real feelings about Eddie and the rumors -- Vicki had a very interesting/telling answer.

Kylie Jenner Pregnancy Gets Kardashian Stamp of Approval

9/26/2017 11:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is having a baby before she's legally allowed to drink, but her family is fully on board ... TMZ has learned.

Our Kardashian sources tell us, the family doesn't view Kylie as a 20-year-old. They think her age is both deceptive and irrelevant, because she's developed a maturity way beyond her years.

Right or wrong, the family feels her success in business and financial independence gives her license to do what she's wanted for 2 years ... to have a baby. The fam was shocked at first, but is accepting.

So the question ... why didn't she have a kid with Tyga? We're told their relationship was never solid enough for a baby ... at least that's the way she felt.

That said, she was eager to become a de facto stepmom to Tyga's son, King Cairo. And she's an involved aunt to 6 kids.

As for having a baby with Travis ... she got pregnant within 2 months of starting to date him. What we don't know ... whether this was a planned pregnancy or not. Either way, we're told Kylie immediately embraced it. We don't know if Travis felt the same way.  

As for Kylie's family, Rob Kardashian is living proof age doesn't always matter

BTW ... Kylie has said in the past, waiting to have a baby till you're 30 is way too late.

TMZ broke the story ... Kylie and Travis are having a girl.

Ron White Sticks to Claim He Has No Wife ... No Prenup = No Marriage

9/26/2017 12:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ron White's sticking to his story -- he and Margo Rey were never married ... and now he says he's got the unsigned prenup to prove it.

According to new docs ... Ron made it very clear to Margo he would not marry her unless the couple had a signed premarital agreement, and they never got to that point due to her "demands for more money." He also claims she knew their "mock wedding ceremony" in October 2013 didn't count as the real thing.

TMZ broke the story ... Rey claims the comedian left her high and dry and wants more than $81k a month in spousal support. Margo's story is the 2 had a common law marriage in Texas and lived together as husband and wife in California too.

Ron denies the common law marriage, and says Margo has absolutely no legal proof she was ever his wife.

Ric Flair I Banged 10,000 Women ... Give Or Take

9/26/2017 10:30 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ric Flair is half the man Wilt Chamberlain claimed to be -- admitting he's slept with roughly 10,000 women during his storied wrestling career.  

Nature Boy reportedly confessed about his 5-figure conquest while shooting a "30 for 30" special for ESPN -- a special that's set to air in November. 

But apparently Naitch, who's famously referred to his penis as "Space Mountain" for years while asking women if they want a ride ... is now embarrassed about his sex life. 

"I wish I hadn't said that because of my grandkids," Flair told People ... insisting, "I only love one now" -- a reference to his fiancee, Wendy Barlow

FYI, Flair is 68 years old -- so if he started banging at 15 ... we're talking an average of 188 women per year (or 3.6 women per week). 

Chamberlain claimed to have slept with 20,000 women

T-Boz Cops Killed My Mentally Ill Cousin with 18 Shots

9/26/2017 9:56 AM PDT

T-Boz Watkins, from TLC, believes cops gunned down her cousin in cold blood at the end of a standoff ... and she's demanding justice for her family.

The shooting happened last Wednesday in Peoria, Illinois -- police responded to a bank robbery and, after using surveillance video to identify the suspect as Eddie Russell Jr. ... tracked him down to a home. Police surrounded the home for 2 hours before 25-year-old Eddie emerged.

While police describe Eddie as aggressively advancing "toward officers with a handgun" -- T-Boz disputes that and says her cousin was unarmed. She also blames cops for "using" Eddie's mother to lure him out of the house. Her biggest issue is he had mental health issues, and she claims police knew that, and promised his mother they would "give him the help he needs."

Cops admit firing 18 shots, and say the coroner confirmed Eddie was struck 17-20 times. They also say they recovered a handgun that matches the one he allegedly had in the bank.

Police released an image from the surveillance video, but T-Boz isn't buying that's a gun in Eddie's hand. Now, she's just trying to get word out about what she considers a senseless killing.

Illinois State Police are investigating.

'Fixer Upper' Stars Done Fixin' After 5th Season

Breaking News

Chip and Joanna Gaines are calling it quits -- for their hit HGTV show -- after 5 seasons.

The "Fixer Upper" stars announced their decision to end the show's run on their blog Tuesday, saying ... "It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last. While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with."

The power couple's show has been one of the network's most successful since premiering in 2013, and their announcement's a shocker for millions of viewers.

However, Chip and Joanna say they want to return to more of a normal lifestyle and handle their business out of the public eye for the sake of their 4 kids.

As for rumors that their marriage is on the rocks, or that the show's ending so Joanna can pursue a skincare line, the couple has this to say -- "Our marriage has honestly never been stronger. This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read. This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment."

Season 5 premieres in November.

Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott It's a Girl!!!

9/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are having a baby girl ... sources directly connected with the couple tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... Kylie is pregnant and Travis has been telling friends about the sex of the baby, but now family sources tell us Travis wasn't lyin'.

We've also learned Travis has been privately telling friends about the pregnancy for nearly 2 months, and Kylie is around 5 months pregnant.

What's interesting about the timing ... TMZ broke the story that Kim and Kanye are also expecting a baby via surrogate, and their kid is due around mid January. That means their baby will be born around the same time as Kylie's. BTW, we broke the story ... Kim and Kanye are also having a girl.

Maybe a discount at Cedars is in the works.

Corinne & DeMario Hooking Up Again This Time at Disneyland!!!

9/26/2017 7:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson are making the leap -- from showstopping sex in a pool to hand-holding in The Happiest Place on Earth! Yeah, it's kind of a downgrade.

The ex-"Bachelor in Paradise" stars hit up Disneyland on Monday, and the PDA made it at least look like Corinne and DeMario are dating. They even kept up the playful cuddling inside It's a Small World ... which says a lot.

Corinne and DeMario -- whose now-infamous sexual exploits temporarily shut down 'BiP' -- reunited last month, but our BS detector was WAY OFF the charts. After all, she all but insinuated he'd taken advantage of her sexually.

If they're faking a relationship now ... a full day at Disneyland is a looong way to go.

NCAA Coaches, Adidas Honcho Charged In FBI Corruption Sting ... Allegedly Paid $$$ to Players

9/26/2017 6:48 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

9:31 AM -- All 10 suspects -- including the 4 coaches -- have now been arrested, officials say. 

8:57 AM PT -- The U.S. Attorney's Office is about to hold a news conference to explain the charges. The conference is set to begin in a few minutes.

The FBI claims Jim Gatto -- the Director of Global Marketing for Adidas Basketball -- paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to funnel top prospects to Adidas sponsored colleges ... including Louisville.

It's all part of a massive probe into corruption in NCAA basketball -- spelled out in 3 separate criminal complaints.

One of the probes centered around Auburn assistant coach Chuck Person, who allegedly took thousands of dollars in bribes to steer players to a financial advisor and a high-end suit-maker. 

The 3rd probe included USC assistant coach Tony Bland, Oklahoma State coach Lamont Evans and Book Richardson from the University of Arizona. 

In total, we're told 10 people are facing charges. Eight of those people have been arrested. 

It's all in court docs filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY and obtained by TMZ Sports.

First, Gatto ... 

In the documents, the FBI says Gatto tried to pay one player and his family $100,000 to get him to a school of Gatto's choice. Another player got $150k with the expectation that the player would sign with Adidas when he went to the NBA.

In the docs, the FBI says a coach at a major college in Florida told Gatto that he needed to pay a top player $150k so the player wouldn't attend another D1 school sponsored by a rival apparel company. 

The coach allegedly told Gatto that the rival clothing company had also offered the player a "substantial sum of money."

The FBI says it has wiretapped phone calls catching Gatto and his conspirators in the act.

The FBI spells it out ...

"The investigation has revealed multiple instances of bribes paid by athlete advisors, including financial advisors and business managers, as well as high-level apparel company employees, and facilitated by coaches employed by NCAA division 1 universities, to student-athletes playing at or bound for NCAA D-1 universities, and the families of such athletes, in exchange for a commitment by those athletes to matriculate at a specific university and a promise to ultimately sign agreements to be represented by the bribe-payors once the athletes enter the NBA."

As for the case against Chuck Person, the FBI says he collected about $91,500 in bribes in exchange for funneling Auburn players to a particular financial advisor and a high-end suit maker, Rashan Michel.

The FBI says Person would use a portion of the bribes to pay off the families of high-priority recruits. 

In one part of the documents, the FBI says Chuck met with a player and counseled him about how players secretly get away with NCAA violations. 

He allegedly told one player, "The most important part is that you ... don't say nothing to anybody ... don't share with your sisters, don't share with any of the teammates, that's very important 'cause this is a violation ... of rules. But this is how the NBA players get it done."

"They get early relationships, and they form partnerships, they form trust, you get to know [financial advisor], you get to know Rashan a lot and like Rashan can get you suits and stuff ... you'll start looking like an NBA ball player, that's what you are."

The other 3 coaches are accused of taking cash bribes from an agent and a financial advisor.
