Scottish Soccer Players Raped Drunk Woman ... Judge Rules

1/17/2017 6:40 AM PST
Breaking News

0117-David-Goodwillie-and-David-Robertson-getty-02Two Scottish soccer stars -- including a former member of the Scotland national team -- have been branded rapists by a Scottish judge after the victim sued their asses in civil court. 

The players -- David Robertson and David Goodwillie -- were accused of raping a drunk woman at an apartment in 2011 after a night of heavy boozing.  

The two men were teammates for the Dundee United soccer team and had gone out drinking after a game earlier in the evening. They allegedly took the woman to a nearby flat and had sex with her despite the fact she was too drunk to give consent. 

The woman says she doesn't remember anything after leaving the bar ... until she woke up naked in a strange apartment.

Prosecutors had previously investigated the incident but no criminal charges were filed and the victim was reportedly "devastated" ... so she decided to take her case to civil court. 

The judge ruled that both men "each raped her" -- and ordered them to pay roughly $124k in damages. 

Goodwillie was a rising star in Scottish soccer -- and briefly played for Team Scotland before the allegations arose. 

NBC Fires Back at Trump Supporter You Were Asking for a Beatdown

When you go to the "Today" show with a shirt suggesting Bill Clinton did what Donald Trump said he did ... you gotta be ready for someone to kick your ass ... so says NBC.

Mark Gallagher went to 30 Rock before the election and wore a t-shirt with Clinton's face and the word "rape."

He claims he was standing there minding his own business when NBC security -- whom he called a "goon squad" -- descended on him and beat the crap out of him. He has sued NBC for $53 mil.

NBC has now fired off its answer, saying when someone does something as incendiary as Gallagher did, they assume the risk someone will come after them. NBC does not get specific, but the network disputes Gallagher's version of the facts ... presumably what he did before the incident.

And this is the best. NBC says Gallagher had a duty to minimize his damages by getting quick medical help, which he did not do. The legal docs say he could have availed himself of the benefits of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- aka Obamacare.

Kristin Chenoweth Joe Mixon Deserves Second Chance 'He's Doing His Work'

1/16/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hollywood star Kristin Chenoweth thinks Joe Mixon has done enough to earn a second chance at life ... saying his NFL future shouldn't be ruined because of his 2014 assault.

Kristin is an Oklahoma native and a huge Sooners fan ... so when we got her out in L.A. we had to get her take on Mixon ... who's leaving Norman for an NFL future.

It's an NFL future some aren't sure he'll have ... with rumblings being that teams -- and some agents -- might not want the PR disaster of having to talk about Mixon brutally punching a woman on tape.

Chenoweth clearly thinks that's wrong ... telling our camera guy she thinks Mixon is "doing his work" to become a better person and has earned a second chance.

It's an interesting take ... since Chenoweth is one of the first prominent female voices to show public support for Mixon.

George Jung Once a Criminal, Always a Criminal Probation Officer Wants Him in Jail

1/16/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113-George-Jung-tmzGeorge Jung is a lifetime criminal who will never be able to reform, according to his probation officer ... but George's side says otherwise.

George's defense team just filed new docs asking for a very light sentence after his latest bust. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, they take issue with the probation officer's scathing testimony -- that Jung's an alcoholic, habitual liar and "no viable vocational or educational treatment programs" can change him.

But George's lawyer thinks probation is enough for a 74-year-old who's no threat to society -- and Johnny Depp's movie, "Blow" continues to give Jung a bad rap.

Jung wants his probation reins loosened too. He's asking the judge to lift the alcohol ban and allow him to travel without checking in with his probation officer.

Blac Chyna Time to Pay, She Owes Us Millions! Alleged Managers Claim

1/15/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0109-blac-chyna-tmzBlac Chyna's going radio silent on 2 men who claim she stiffed them for millions after they helped make her the celebrity she is today.

Jason Alston and Lincoln Hayes of Infinite Grind Multimedia say they signed Blac Chyna back in June 2007 to a 10-year contract which made them her managers. They claim the deal called for her to fork over 50% of her earnings during that period.

The men claim they discovered her when she was stripping in D.C. and helped her score covers on Black Men and Straight Stuntin magazines. This was all before she hit it big and got in with the Kardashians -- but under the deal they're still her managers, and they want their cut.

Alston and Hayes claim she owes them at least $3 mil in unpaid fees -- they can't pinpoint the exact amount because they believe she's made deals without them. They're threatening to sue if she doesn't pay up by June.

We reached out to Blac Chyna, but she had no comment.

1/15/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113-scott-baio-nancy-mack-TMZ-TWITTER-01Scott Baio may get justice, because the D.A. is now considering prosecuting the woman who allegedly attacked him over his support for Donald Trump.

We've learned the Ventura County D.A. now has a file on his desk with the name, Nancy Mack ... the wife of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.  

The D.A. will decide if she should be prosecuted for battery ... for allegedly confronting Scott at a school function for their kids, berating him for supporting Trump and then allegedly physically attacking him as she screamed "Grab 'em by the pussy."

The case will be a misdemeanor at best, but jail time would be on the line if the D.A. pulls the trigger.

Cesar Millan Home Burglarized They Came in Through the Bathroom Window!!

EXCLUSIVE

0113-Cesar-Millan-tmzCesar Millan got bit where it really hurts when someone broke into his house and made off with a ton of jewelry.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the break-in happened Thursday night at Cesar's home in Studio City, CA. We're told the burglar or burglars entered through an unlocked bathroom window -- and left with several hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bling.

Sources close to the 'Dog Whisperer' say he had been in Asia on business for several weeks, but the good news is his security cameras were working. Cops say surveillance footage captured the heist in progress ... and will be critical to identifying any culprits.

No animals were harmed in this crime -- this home isn't the one where Cesar has his training facility.

A rep for Cesar tells us the Millan family requests privacy while they work with the police department to conduct a thorough investigation.

T.J. Miller Dodges Charges In Driver Beatdown Case

1/14/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0110-tj-miller-tmzT.J. Miller won't be charged with a crime for allegedly beating up his driver ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... the "Silicon Valley" star allegedly got high on nitrous oxide and delivered a blow to his driver's head. He was arrested for battery, but a rep at the L.A. City Attorney's Office tells us they're going to have an informal office hearing with T.J. to discuss the incident.

A number of things could go down -- from a simple warning to making him attend anger management classes, but bottom line is ... he'll dodge charges. For now.

We're told if T.J. screws up -- by skipping the meeting or not adhering to whatever comes out of the meeting -- the charges could resurface.

T.J.'s still facing a civil suit over the incident.

EXCLUSIVE

0113-blac-chyna-arrested-airport-TMZ-01update_graphic_red_bar3:00 PM PT -- Chyna's prosecution was deferred essentially because she's been on her best behavior since the arrest. Prosecutors tell us she completed a "sufficient amount" of classes, and because it was a non-violent offense ... they dismissed the charges. 

They wouldn't say what kind of classes she specifically took, but in cases like this it's typically some sort of substance abuse education or community service.update_grey_gray_barBlac Chyna will avoid going to trial for her ecstasy bust in Texas ... we've learned the case has been dismissed.

According to court docs, prosecutors in Austin filed to drop the third degree felony charge against Chyna and a judge agreed, dismissing the charge Friday. 

We broke the story ... she was arrested about a year ago in Austin International Airport after acting erratically and getting verbally abusive with a bartender. Police said they found 2 pills in her sunglasses case.
