EXCLUSIVE

080714_nicole_murphey_launch_v2
Nicole Murphy was mum Thursday on her breakup with Michael Strahan ... but she had a lot to say about her new passion -- moscato.  

Nicole was leaving the W Hotel in Hollywood Thursday when she shut down questions about her breakup -- which some are calling a revenge breakup.  

But Nicole was unstoppable when it came to talking about the wine she's promoting.

Watch the clip ... Nicole's wine knowledge is somewhat suspect.

Porn Star Sasha Grey

My Abusive Ex

Claimed He Was a DIA Spy!

EXCLUSIVE

Sasha Grey Restraining Order
Sasha Grey says she was lured into porn by a violent and abusive ex-BF-- who convinced her he was a military spy who needed her for "cover" ... and now she fears he's come back to hurt her.

Grey claims in new court docs Ian Cinnamon subjected Grey to years of abuse and sexual assaults -- starting in 2005 when she was 16 and he was 29.

Grey claims it was Cinnamon who convinced her to become a porn star, telling her he was a covert agent and she would be the perfect "cover" for him.  And get this -- he convinced her he worked for the DIA.

Grey claims Cinnamon got physically abusive.  On one occasion she told him she forgot to check one of her porn sex partner's STD test and he flew into a rage, hurling household objects at her.

Grey says she broke off the relationship in 2012 ... and recently he started sending her numerous threatening messages ... some showing pictures of handguns. 

A judge agreed Cinnamon was a threat ... and has ordered him to stay at least 200 yards from her.

Attempts to reach Ian were unsuccessful.

Nicole Murphy

Michael and I Will Always Be Friends

8/7/2014 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Nicole Murphy addressed her breakup with Michael Strahan for the first time today, and did her best to make it seem like there are NO hard feelings between them -- but it's kinda hard to buy what she's selling in this clip.

Nicole was grabbing lunch in L.A. after a workout when she claimed, "It's all good" ... between her and Strahan -- glossing over the fact he was blindsided by the breakup announcement, and that she had hunted him down in a hotel room to accuse him of cheating.

Nicole was also asked about her relationship with ex-NBA star Jimmy Jackson ... after their Caribbean fling last month.

She may be a reality TV star, but Nicole's got some acting chops too.

Rages at Strahan's Hotel Door

8/7/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0806_nicole_murphy_strahan_beverly-hotel_composite2Nicole Murphy went on a search and destroy mission to find Michael Strahan in a Beverly Hills hotel room -- where she suspected he was cheating -- and flew into such a rage she got kicked off the premises.

It all went down at the famous Beverly Wilshire Hotel back in January. Sources tell us Nicole had gotten word that Michael was staying there ... and she suspected he was with another woman.

We're told Nicole showed up at Michael's hotel room, unannounced ... and began banging on the door shortly before midnight, causing a major scene.

Witnesses tell us Nicole was screaming Michael's name, saying, "I know you're in there with some bitch." She also yelled, for all to hear, "It's Michael from 'Kelly and Michael' in there." 

The commotion woke up several guests in neighboring rooms -- some of whom stuck their heads out into the hallway. She ranted for 20 minutes before hotel security booted Nicole from the hotel.

We have no idea if Michael was ever in the room ... but the door never opened.

Even as Nicole Murphy suspected Michael Strahan was cheating -- new pics reveal she was getting cozy with former NBA star Jimmy Jackson in Puerto Rico … which is awful. Until you take a closer look at JJ.

Nicole Murphy

Secret Vacation with Ex-NBA Star

WEEKS Before Breakup Announcement

8/5/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0805_NICOLE-MURPHY_on-beach-wmNicole Murphy had a secret romantic fling in the Caribbean with former NBA star Jim Jackson in early July -- the exact same time she says she suspected Michael Strahan of cheating on her.

TMZ has obtained photos of Nicole and Jim at the Dorado Beach Ritz-Carlton in Puerto Rico, where they stayed from July 7 through July 10.

You see them in a cabana on the beach ... and they got very snuggly.  People at the hotel tell us they were hugging, kissing ... definitely affectionate.

0805_NICOLE-MURPHY_on-beach-wm_subSources close to the exes tell us ... Nicole had gone to P.R. with some girlfriends, and just happened to run into Jim -- an old friend -- and even though they "hung out" ... it was nothing serious.

We're told Michael knew Nicole was taking the trip with her GFs, but was not aware anything went on with Jackson.

We're told Nicole now says she and Michael were "on a break" when she hooked up with Jackson -- but she did not feel the relationship was over.

Still ... it's interesting ... she's accusing Michael of cheating but she was clearly playing the field.

Robin Thicke

That's My Nanny, Stupid!

8/5/2014 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0805_robin_thicke_with_nanny-FameFlynet-AKM-GSIRobin Thicke was not cavorting with a chick on Lake Perris when he was supposed to be performing a concert ... he was with his son and his nanny.

There have been a slew of reports the chick might be Robin's new girl.  But we've learned it's not. Robin, we're told, isn't dating anyone and has no interest in getting back on the saddle ... at least for now.  He still wants Paula back ... but he knows it's probably not gonna happen.

As for why Thicke canceled his Indiana concert and hung out on the lake ... we're told he was having vocal issues, so he decided to make the most of a bad situation and spend time with his kid. 

Can't fault a dad for that.

Drake

Rihanna Is The Devil

8/5/2014 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

080514_drake_insta_launch_v2
Rihanna is now the devil ... so says Drake -- the guy she used to bang.

Take a close look at this video ... Drake is singing "Days In the East" -- Monday night in Toronto during his OVO Fest -- when a fiery 6 appears, followed by an image of Rihanna, followed again by a 6, then another Rihanna and a 3rd 6.

It's unclear what turned Rihanna from Drake's girl into a satanic symbol. Drake has trashed her here and there, but it's one thing to have beef with your ex, and another to call her out as the devil.

Michael Strahan & Nicole Murphy

Breakup Announcement Triggered

By 'Proof' Of Other Woman

8/5/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-nicole-murphy-michael-strahan-tmz-01Nicole Murphy decided to tell the world she had broken up with Michael Strahan -- right when he was entering the Hall of Fame -- because that's when she "confirmed" he was unfaithful.

A source close to the couple tells TMZ ... Nicole first got wind Michael might be dating another woman in early July and started investigating ... the way scorned women do. We're told she was finally convinced it was true on Friday  and immediately decided to go public.

The source did not know the nature of Nicole's proof.

We're told Nicole insists her timing wasn't out of revenge, rather a total coincidence because that's when she knew for sure. It just happened to come precisely when Michael was getting the greatest honor of his career.

Other sources tell us Nicole and Michael have been broken up for several weeks -- and, in fact, their bi-coastal relationship has been on and off for almost 2 years ... since Michael took the 'Live' gig.

Ultimately this may come down to that old "Friends" theory -- but we're told Nicole definitely did NOT think they were "on a break."

Reps for Michael and Nicole have not responded to calls for comment.

'Star Trek: Voyager' Actor

My Ex Claims I'm Banging Bill Nye

8/5/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804-Bob-and-Bill-Gallery-Sub-Launch-Template-02
"Star Trek: Voyager" actor Robert Picardo says he way too old to experiment with Bill Nye the Science Guy ... in the bedroom.

Picardo is asking a judge to stop his soon-to-be ex-wife from spreading rumors he's in a gay relationship with Nye.  

The actor says in court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Linda Pawlik lured him over to her house on July 4th by falsely telling him the family dog was missing.  While he was there, he claims Linda had a P.I. attach a GPS device to his car.

Days later ... Linda started telling family friends the P.I. reported back that Picardo and Nye spent 3 hours together in Nye's bedroom, which she believes is proof of an affair.

Picardo says in docs, "I'd made it to 60 without having sex with a man and a 'walk on the wild side' at this age seemed unlikely to anyone who knows me." 

The actor acknowledges he and Nye have been friends for years and have taken many pics together ... but he says it's purely platonic.

Fabulous.

Robin Thicke

Another Concert Canceled

For the Beach

8/4/2014 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-robin-thicke-son-kid-lake-perris-AKMGSI
Robin Thicke went camping with his son and a mystery woman the same day he was supposed to be performing in Indiana ... and this isn't the first time it's happened.

What was termed a "scheduling conflict" was in actuality a personal day ... deja vu, because he did the same thing back in February when he cancelled 2 back-to-back concerts because of illness, but ended up at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA with his son.

R.T. fans better read that return policy pretty closely.

Chris Brown

Karrueche Didn't Dump Him

He Dumped Her

8/3/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-chris-brown-tmz-3Chris Brown -- NOT KARRUECHE -- is the one who did the breaking up, because she was a crass opportunist ... so say people in Chris' camp.

Sources closely connected with the singer tell TMZ ...  Chris is shocked Karrueche's people leaked a story that she dumped him, allegedly because of a never-ending obsession with Rihanna and refusal to act like an adult.

But Chris' people tell us ... he found out she was texting and sending photos to other guys while they were together.  He was also furious she did interviews for her clothing line and talked about their relationship.

In a word ... Chris decided she was an "opportunist" and dumped her.
