Nick Gordon

The Brown Family is Screwing Me Over

I'm Not a Murderer

10/6/2015 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-nick-gordon-splash-01Nick Gordon says Bobbi Kristina's family is painting him as a murderer and scumbag to the point he will never get a fair trial if he's criminally prosecuted.

Gordon says in legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the Brown family has painted him a "murderer, a habitual batterer of women, a seducer of young white females, a thief and/or con man fueled by monetary gain, and a chemist capable of making a toxic cocktail."

Gordon is asking the judge to stop the $40 million wrongful death lawsuit the Browns filed against him until the criminal process runs its course.

The big thing for Gordon ... he says he has a right to remain silent, and the civil case would force him to answer questions that could be used against him if criminal charges are filed.

1006-jax-taylor-tmz-01"Vanderpump Rules" star Jax Taylor is looking to wipe the smile right off of a teeth whitening company's corporate face ... claiming his pearly whites have been jaxed. 

Taylor filed legal docs claiming he had a deal in 2009 with Lumibrite to pose for ads for its teeth whitening product. He says the deal ended a long time ago, but the company's kept using his mug.

This is Jax's second lawsuit in a month ...  he sued a shoe company in September for another endorsement deal gone wrong. 

We reached out to Lumibrite for comment ... so far, no word back.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Client

I Didn't Rape Those Women ...

They All Wanted It

10/6/2015 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-michael-bernback-bravo-01"Millionaire Matchmaker" client Michael Bernback, the guy accused of raping three women, says they all wanted it and one of the women even let him pee in her mouth. 

Bernback says in legal docs, obtained by TMZ, he met all three women on sexual hook-up websites. He claims at least two of the women knew they'd be engaging in bondage and/or anal sex -- a totally different story than what his eight felony and three misdemeanor charges indicate.  

During one encounter, Bernback says one of the women allowed herself to be tied up with various bondage devices and let Bernback "urinate into her mouth" in the shower.

According to the legal docs, the woman all admitted they advertised on sexual hook-up websites they were looking for sexual liaisons.  The docs say at least 1 of the women told cops she knew there would be multiple women on hand for a sexual encounter.

Lawyers for Bernback want a judge to force the prosecutors to be more specific as to which sexual acts were allegedly nonconsensual. 

Cindy Crawford

Here's What I Really Look Like In A Bikini

10/6/2015 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-cindy-crawford-rande-gerber-mavirx-01Here's what Cindy Crawford really looks like untouched ... in a bikini.

Crawford hit the waves Monday with husband Rande Gerber in Miami, putting body shaming Internet trolls in their place with her itsy bitsy white snakeskin bikini and flat torso.

It's sweet justice for the mother of two who became the victim of an unflattering Photoshop prank.

Gerber seems to be keeping up with his wife, for the most part.

She turns 50 in February. Life truly is unfair.



I Thought I Could Change Chris Brown

After the Beating

breaking news

1006-rihanna-brown-getty-01Rihanna now says she gave Chris Brown a second chance after he beat her up because she felt she was just one of those people "built to handle s*** like this."

Rihanna spoke to Vanity Fair about her reasoning for taking Chris Brown back and making the decision to lift the restraining order after the brutal beating. You may recall, she went vacationing with Chris 3 weeks after the attack.

Rihanna's logic for going back ... "Maybe I'm the person who's almost the guardian angel to this person, to be there when they're not strong enough, when they're not understanding the world, when they just need someone to encourage them in a positive way and say the right thing."

She went on, saying she thought she could change Brown, "A hundred percent. I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn't understand him."

And she had an interesting take on how she actually became Brown's "enemy," saying, "You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I'm willing to put up with something, they think less of you."

Steve Rannazzisi

I Only Had 15 Seconds

To Change My 9/11 Lie

10/6/2015 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'League' star Steve Rannazzisi admits he did a "terrible" thing by lying about 9/11, but says the lie was not premeditated ... it started at an off the cuff quip at The Comedy Store.

Steve went on Howard Stern's show Tuesday and explained his lie ... that he was in one of the Twin Towers during the attack and it became a life-changing moment that led him to pursue his career in comedy.

According to Steve, he was just asked by someone at the club where he was during the attack and the phony story just spilled out. He says once that happens you have 15 seconds to say it was BS or else you have to own it.

It's a really good interview. He says he chose to talk about his lie on 'Stern' because Howard personifies New York and felt it was the right venue.




Rachel Dolezal's a Hero

... Black Game Changer!

10/6/2015 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-rihanna-dolezal-getty-instagram-01File Under: Didn't See This One Comin' ... but Rihanna just went to bat for faux-black person Rachel Dolezal ... saying her ultra-tan charade was less disgraceful and more HEROIC! 

"I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit," Rihanna told Vanity Fair

"Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up."

Dolezal was mocked relentlessly for pretending to be black -- and resigned from her position as the President of the Spokane Chapter of the NAACP after she was exposed. 

But now with Rihanna's support ... is it possible Dolezal can make a legitimate comeback?

'Jerry Springer' Producer

Cops Say She Lied

Over Sister's Suicide

10/6/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0320-jill-blackstone-coleman-rayner-split-date-2The 'Jerry Springer' producer whose sister died in their garage is now in the hot seat with the LAPD, because TMZ has learned cops believe her story about the death doesn't make sense.

Jill Blackstone's sister Wendy died in March from a combination of carbon monoxide poisoning and Xanax. At the time it appeared Wendy, who was blind and partially deaf, committed suicide ... even leaving a note.  

Jill had said she had no idea Wendy wanted to kill herself. As for how a Weber grill and charcoal got into the garage, Jill told police the Weber grill was for warmth and the coals in the trash can were for roasting marshmallows.

But we've learned cops now paint a very different picture of what they say happened. Our law enforcement sources tell us when they first interviewed Jill she told cops she had no idea her sister wanted to kill herself. But cops say it's very clear Jill -- not Wendy -- wrote the "suicide" note.

Our sources say cops are "confident" Jill assisted her sister -- not out of vengeance but mercy for her condition. Even if Jill's motive was mercy-based, it would still be a crime, and we're told the case is now "on the front burner" for possible criminal prosecution.

Scott Disick's 18-Year-Old Chick

He's NOT My Boyfriend!!!

10/6/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-scott-disick-lindsay-vrckovnik-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Scott Disick's 18-year-old travel companion says she's NOT sleeping with or dating him ... at least that's the story she's telling her friends.

Lindsay Vrckovnik insists she's never hooked up with Scott. She says she's been traveling with a group of models and met Scott in NYC, and hung out for a day. The girls wanted to move the party to Miami over the weekend, and according to what she's telling friends ... Scott happily followed.

Lindsay -- who's from Canada --  has a boyfriend there and the photos that surfaced have caused a problem between the two of them.

Whatever Lindsay claims ... she's having trouble convincing her BF for a few reasons. First, she and Scott didn't meet for the first time last week ... they hung out at least once before, in July, at a party in Malibu.

The second problem Lindsay has ... explaining the pics where she's all nuzzly with Disick. She says the pics are "misleading."
