Roy Moore New Accuser Speaks ... He Tried to Force Oral Sex When I Was 16 Years Old

11/13/2017 11:08 AM PST
Breaking News

5:30 PM PT -- Roy Moore has denied Beverly's allegation, going so far as to say he doesn't even know her or know anything about her. A new accuser of Republican Roy Moore says the U.S. Senate candidate once tried to force her to perform oral sex on him when she was just 16 years old. 

Beverly Young Nelson appeared at a press conference Monday in NYC alongside attorney Gloria Allred to make the accusation, tearing up and crying throughout. 

Nelson says she was a waitress in Alabama between 1976 and '77, and that Moore -- then the D.A. of their county -- was a regular, and that he would flirt with her. In December of '77, Nelson says Moore signed her yearbook, and then offered a ride home after her shift.

Instead of driving her home, though, she says Moore pulled around behind the restaurant and began groping her breasts, before he allegedly grabbed her neck and tried to force her head toward his crotch.

Nelson says she resisted, and Moore ultimately gave up. She says he kicked her out his car and told her not to tell anyone since no one would believe her. 

Moore has also been accused of sexual misconduct with minors by 4 other women. He's been asked by many politicians on both sides of the aisle to step aside. 

T.I. Sosa's Alleged Skin Bleaching ... Is 'Self-Hate'

11/13/2017 11:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sammy Sosa hates himself and that's why he's turning himself whiter ... that's according to T.I. who went in on the ex-MLB star when we got him out at LAX.

Sammy's complexion has very obviously changed over the years. We can only find one interview where he addressed it -- from 2009 -- saying the lightening was an unexpected result of a skin softening cream. 

But T.I. ain't buyin' Sammy's excuse -- shaking his head and saying it was more about "self-hate" than moisturizing. 

If you don't know what Tip means, he's referring to the idea that black people who bleach their skin are doing it to fit in with a European beauty standard and are selling out their race, something a lot of black people think is despicable.

Then again, it's his life ...

Tom Brady says Colin Kaepernick is a "damn good quarterback" who's proven he can play at a high level -- but the Pats superstar says he "has no idea" if Kaep's actually being blackballed. 

Brady appeared on WEEI's "Kirk and Callahan" Monday morning where he was asked straight-up if NFGL owners are colluding to keep Kaepernick out of the NFL. 

Brady took a long pause and then delivered his answer ... 

"You know, I don't ... I have no idea if he's being blackballed."

"I think he was a ... I competed against him. I thought he was a damn good quarterback. And he's played at a high level, brought his team to Super Bowls."

"You know ... that's how I feel about him."

As far as their personal relationship goes, Brady says he doesn't really know Colin at all -- and has "never really had a conversation with him."

EXCLUSIVE

The guy replacing Kevin Spacey in a movie that's supposed to be released in about a month is surprisingly at ease about pulling off an unprecedented cinematic move.

We got Christopher Plummer Sunday in NYC where he was attending the premiere of one of his own upcoming flicks, and asked if it was a difficult decision to accept the role in Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World," after Spacey got the ax last week

From the way Chris responds, it doesn't sound like he has any qualms about taking the gig away, even though he was mum on reaching out to the beleaguered actor. 

As for that looming release date of December 22 -- Chris might as well have quoted OutKast ... ain't no thang. 

Jim Brown Changes Stance on Kneeling 'It's Fine With Me'

11/13/2017 6:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jim Brown is softening his opinion on Colin Kaepernick's kneeling demonstration -- telling TMZ Sports he's decided he's "fine" with NFL players protesting during the national anthem. 

The NFL legend had previously lashed out against the protesters back in August  -- saying, "I'm an American. I don't desecrate my flag and my national anthem."

But that was months ago ... and when the Cleveland Browns icon was leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills on Sunday, he wanted to make it clear he's changed his tune. 

"I think if [NFL players] wanted to kneel and it was within the rules of the game, it's fine with me," Brown said.

He added, "I really don't want to speak for anyone else, and I don't want to be negative about too many things." 

Brown's comments came just a few hours before Colin Kaepernick was named GQ's Citizen of the Year. 

Rick Santorum Hollywood's No Purer than D.C. On Sexual Harassment

11/12/2017 2:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Santorum says Hollywood turned a blind eye to sexual misconduct for decades, and that it's no better than D.C. ... even if it likes to pretend it is today.

We got the former U.S. Senator Sunday where we asked about the torrent of sexual harassment allegations coming out in Tinseltown lately, and how they compare to similar scandals in D.C. -- like Republican Roy Moore's alleged pursuit of an underage girl.

Santorum seems to welcome the cleansing, so to speak. But he doesn't mince words about the sudden shock and appall on Hollywood's end ... where A-listers are being excommunicated left and right.

Bottom line for Rick ... out with the bad, but don't act like it wasn't there all along. 

George Lopez Hollywood's an Evil Business

EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez gives Hollywood low marks for the way it treats its own, but he gives Louis C.K. props for fessing up.

We got George at LAX Friday and he had strong feelings about the floodgates that have opened over the last 3 weeks.  

He's pretty cynical about the way Hollywood runs, but seems to think there is a path to redemption which begins with a mea culpa. That may not be the way Louis C.K. sees it ... he's been summarily fired from almost all of his projects.

Louis C.K. deserves to lose everything he's lost professionally, because no one should be rewarded for sexual assault ... according to "Orange Is The New Black" star, Lea DeLaria.

We got Lea at LAX Friday and asked her about the huge backlash C.K.'s faced since 5 women accused him of sexual misconduct ... to which he's since confessed. Lea says while he seemed to be "one of the good guys" who supported women in comedy -- C.K.'s behavior reveals something much darker.

He's been dropped by his management and publicist, lost his Netflix and FX deals, and had his movie release canceled.

You can tell Lea desperately wants to say something positive about Louis -- but ultimately has to admit it's nearly impossible now.
