O.J. Simpson Plant Your Ass in 'Naked Gun' Chair ... For the Right Price

2/19/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

More of O.J. Simpson's crap can be yours -- like his set chair from "Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult" -- but his ass ain't behind this piece of memorabilia.

The guy who owns the chair tells TMZ ... he bought it for $500 in the early 2000s and says it's the one he used during the filming of the 1994 flick -- the same year O.J. was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

The guy says the chair once fetched as much as $5,000 from another auction site, but pulled the plug. It's now on eBay and the asking bid's $1,495.

As for why the guy's selling now ... these days he's more into collecting musician items. And with O.J. free and out on parole, maybe the lucky buyer can get O.J.'s John Hancock on the new chair.

Playboy Sued You Lied and Let My Nips Slip!!!

2/18/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Playboy had the nerve to publish a model's nude photo on its cover after promising a bunch of times it wouldn't ... so claims a former Playmate model in a new lawsuit.

The model, filing the suit as Jane Doe, says she always wanted to appear in Playboy, but resisted because she'd never do it nude. But that all changed, she says, after Playboy, in 2015, announced it would no longer publish nude pics.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the model claims the photog, shooting for Playboy Romania, repeatedly promised pics showing her nipples or other private parts would be digitally edited. She says she was appalled when her nipples were fully exposed for Playboy Romania's cover in May 2016.  

Just a note ... she wanted to remain anonymous which is why she filed as Jane Doe, but she puts in the lawsuit she's on the cover of Playboy Romania's May 2016 cover. Hmmmm.

We've reached out to Playboy ... so far, no word back.

Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux No Evidence They Were Ever Married

2/17/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux seemed headed for divorce court, but based on our records search and sources ... they may never have been married in the first place.

The couple got married -- we thought -- at their Bel-Air mansion in 2015.

We checked marriage records in L.A. County all the way back to 2010 and there is no record of a marriage license. There's such a thing as a confidential marriage license, but we're told they did NOT get one in L.A. County. 

They could have gotten a marriage license in any of the 57 other counties in California, but we spoke with some Jen sources who have had regular contact with her for years, and they say there's been talk for a long time they might not be legally married.

We also checked with numerous divorce lawyers, and no one, as far as we can see, has been contacted by either Jen or Justin.

It's certainly possible they're legally married, but based on what we found, it's possible they're not.

Nipsey Hussle Cops Towed My Armored Truck They Have It Out for Me!!!

2/17/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nipsey Hussle's armored truck was towed because it was illegally parked in a handicap spot ... this according to law enforcement sources, but the rapper's adamant cops have it twisted and they're just hating on him.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Nipsey's Brinks truck -- a literal marketing vehicle for his new album, "Victory Lap" -- was towed from his store's parking lot after cops say it was parked in a handicap spot without handicap plates.

What's more ... cops ran the plates and discovered the tags expired 6 months ago. The truck was  impounded.

Nipsey insists the truck's in his possession but we checked with cops ... and it's still impounded. Sources close to the rapper claim he was NOT parked in a handicap spot and say cops towed the truck from his clothing store's private parking lot.

Rebecca Gayheart Files for Divorce from Eric Dane

2/16/2018 4:36 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart are getting divorced after 14 years of marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Rebecca, who starred in "Beverly Hills, 90210" filed legal docs Friday afternoon. Rebecca is asking for spousal support, as well as joint legal and physical custody. The couple has 2 daughters, ages 6 and 7.

Rebecca has been through a lot over the years. Back in 2001, she was driving and allegedly talking on her cellphone when she struck and killed a 9-year-old. She pled no contest to vehicular manslaughter and was sentenced to 3 years probation.

Eric, who starred in "Grey's Anatomy," and Rebecca were caught up in a scandal back in 2009 when Gawker released a sex tape of them having a threesome in a bathtub with another woman.

Stan Lee Face-Off with Ex-Bodyguard Cops Called to L.A. Home

2/16/2018 10:44 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Stan Lee's house was swarmed by cops Thursday after a man allegedly refused to leave his property. 

Law enforcement sources tell us they were called to the Marvel founder's L.A. home after a former bodyguard of Lee's showed up. We're told both Lee and his daughter asked Max Anderson -- a convicted felon -- to leave, and when he refused, they called police to intervene.

Our sources say reps from adult protective services were also called. Once officers arrived they spoke to Anderson, and we're told he agreed to leave peacefully. 

Stan has had a rough past few weeks ... he was taken to the hospital earlier this month for heart trouble and cops are investigating the unauthorized purchase of an $850k condo made in Stan's name.

On the bright side ... "Black Panther," which he co-created, is already killing it at the box office. 

In response to Thursday's incident, we're told Stan has hired private security to watch his property 24/7 to prevent any more intruders.

No, he's not hiring King T'Challa to watch his back.

Blac Youngsta Lil Pump is Getting Done Dirty ... 'F*** tha Police!!!'

2/16/2018 7:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump and his mother are getting a raw deal from law enforcement ... according to his homie, Blac Youngsta, who has some choice words for cops. Three to be exact. 

We got Youngsta outside Ciroc Studios in Hollywood, and he took a break from plugging his new record to support Pump. TMZ broke the story ... Pump was arrested for firing a handgun while in his L.A. apartment. The 17-year-old rapper's mom could also be in trouble for leaving a minor home alone with a gun and weed.

Youngsta thinks law enforcement's version of the story is total BS, and didn't pull punches when we asked for his opinion.

We'd say BY is starting the "Free Lil Pump" campaign, but Pump got out of jail yesterday -- with a GPS ankle monitor -- and bragged about his "rich lawyer."

Bonus: Watch for Youngsta's baller exit in the lambo. L.A. traffic's a bitch!

Omar Epps Sued by 'Shooter' Actress ... He Went Off Script and Broke My Arm!!!

2/15/2018 6:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Omar Epps improvised an action scene with a much older actress, and ended up sending her to the hospital ... according to a new suit filed by the actress.

Donzaleigh Abernathy claims she was filming a scene with Epps in May 2016 for the USA show "Shooter" where his character was supposed to murder her character, when he "completely deviated from the script" and "threw his left forearm with full force at [her] right arm," and broke it.

Abernathy says she was 59 at the time, and claims a much younger and stronger Epps was negligent and reckless in his handling of her during the scene. According to the docs ... along with breaking her arm, he also dropped her hard on the floor and injured her back. She claims production was stopped and she was rushed to the hospital.

Abernathy is suing Epps, along with Paramount Pictures, for negligence and assault and battery. She's asking for damages for her pain and suffering and wants her medical costs -- present and future -- covered.

Lil Pump I Got Me Rich Lawyers, Yo ... To Fight Firearms Charges

2/15/2018 3:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump isn't taking his arrest Wednesday night seriously ... which is the biggest understatement of the week.

We got the 17-year-old Thursday at 2:30 PM leaving Sylmar Juvenile Court, and he was as hyped as ever, showing off his newly acquired jewelry ... an ankle monitor. 

He was also spittin' bars about popping Xanax and boasting about Gucci tats.

TMZ broke the story ... Pump was arrested for firing a handgun into the door of his San Fernando Valley residence. He had told cops intruders had fired from the outside in, but cops quickly realized it was the opposite -- that Pump was the shooter and there were no intruders.

He was arrested and taken to a Juvenile detention center, because he's still a minor. 

Lil Pump Arrested for Shooting Gun While Home Alone

2/15/2018 9:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump was arrested Wednesday night at his home after he fired a gun, but the reason he discharged the weapon is in dispute ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, Pump's manager reported 3 men were jimmying the rapper's front door, trying to get into his San Fernando Valley home around 4 PM, and the suspects fired a gun once through the door. The manager was not at the house, but was relaying info to cops after speaking to Pump.

When police responded, they found a bullet hole in the front door. However, there were no suspects on the scene. Cops say the 17-year-old rapper had been smoking marijuana, and after talking to him they found holes in the intruder story. 

Cops say the trajectory of the bullet hole shows it came from inside the home. Police returned a few hours later with a search warrant ... and found a handgun in the bushes below the balcony of Pump's apartment. The weapon was unloaded, but cops found ammo for the gun in the apartment. Cops felt Pump had fired the gun into the door -- not an intruder -- and arrested him for discharging a weapon in an inhabited place.

There's more potential trouble for Pump's family -- police found marijuana in the apartment, and his mother was not home. We're told she's under investigation for endangering a minor and having an unsecured gun at home.

Pump is currently being held in juvenile detention.

Pump's camp insists there were indeed 3 men trying to get into the home, and he only fired out of fear they were about to gain entry to the apartment. They also say Pump believes he hit one of the suspects. We're told there are surveillance cameras that should show the alleged intruders, and Pump's team will be reviewing it ASAP.

Warren Sapp Denies Drunken Attack On Woman ... Claims Accuser Was Wasted

2/15/2018 6:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Warren Sapp says he's INNOCENT -- claiming the woman accusing him of drunkenly running her over at a 2015 Super Bowl party was so wasted that night, she's clearly misremembering the facts. 

We broke the story ... Sapp is being sued by Paula Trickey -- who claims she was hanging at an ESPN party in Arizona on Jan. 30, 2015 when a sloshed Sapp came out of nowhere and bowled her over, causing serious injury.

Sapp was served with his summons earlier this week in L.A. when a process server posed as a fan and blindsided him by slapping him with his court summons. 

Now, Sapp's rep, Brandon V. Chretien, is firing back ... telling TMZ Sports simply, "Mr. Sapp was never at the ESPN party where Ms. Trickey is claiming she had a run in with him and no one will be able to produce pictures that suggest otherwise."

"It's on record that Mr. Sapp was hosting an 'NFL Alumni Association' party where Pitbull was performing that evening of January 30th, 2015 and this was a completely separate event from the ESPN party that Ms. Trickey is alluding to."

Sapp's rep also points to the fact Trickey was arrested for DUI after the party -- "Ms. Trickey was heavily intoxicated that evening as she was arrested for DUI at 3:40 am in the morning with BAC of .119, double the legal limit."

"We are consulting with our legal team and we look forward to getting to the bottom of this issue."

Nelly 'I'm Innocent' of Sexual Assaults ... Headlines Unfair to Me

2/15/2018 7:10 AM PST

Nelly's speaking out for the first time, on camera, about the sexual assault allegations -- and says he's getting a raw deal in the media.

Nelly was catching a flight out of LAX Wednesday when he told us, point blank, "I'm innocent." He also had a lot to say about how the story's been covered ... complaining his accusers -- in Washington state and England -- are getting way more attention.

He points out the criminal charges were dropped in the Washington case, but he thinks that story -- which TMZ first reported -- has been buried.

Nelly also had a very interesting answer when we asked if it's a good idea to hook up with fans. You'd expect a quick, "HELL NO" ... right? Not exactly. 

Kanye West Kicks Lloyd's of London's Ass ... In Canceled Tour Lawsuit

2/14/2018 7:01 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West just scored a belated victory by settling his massive lawsuit against Lloyd's of London, which had refused to pay for the losses he incurred when he canceled some of his 2016 Saint Pablo concerts after suffering a mental breakdown.

We've learned Lloyd's folded under massive pressure by Kanye's lawyers and agreed to pay most of what Kanye was due under the policy. Kanye's touring company -- Very Good Touring -- had sued for $10 million after Lloyd's incredibly refused to pay because it claimed the breakdown was triggered by Kanye's alleged drug use. Lloyd's claimed drug use was an exclusion under the policy.

As we reported, Lloyd's initially dragged its feet, claiming marijuana triggered the mental breakdown, something we're told was totally unsupported by medical evidence. TMZ reported the breakdown was triggered by a mental condition that had nothing to do with drugs.

In the end ... Lloyd's decided going to court was too risky, especially when faced with a possible huge punitive damages award.

A similar fight was triggered when Heath Ledger died ... Lloyd's initially refused to pay his daughter under the policy, but eventually recanted.
