Chad Johnson Keyshawn's Helping His Son ... Weed and NFL Don't Mix

6/21/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson says he's all for Keyshawn Johnson showing his son a little tough love ... saying it might be just what the kid needs to keep him from blowing his football career (and some BIG money).

Keyshawn Sr. yanked his boy off Nebraska's football squad after Key Jr. got busted with weed in his dorm -- saying his son needs to "mature" before he can put his pads on again.

We got Chad out at LAX, and asked him if this was great fathering -- or parenting gone too far?

Ocho made it clear he has Key's back -- although he wasn't sure he'd have done the same thing.

BTW -- Key Jr. was one of the best high school wideouts in the country, so we're betting Nebraska coach Mike Riley is hoping dad softens up.

Shock G Busted for Drugs

6/21/2017 10:45 AM PDT

Digital Underground rapper Shock G was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia after a tour stop in Wisconsin.

G got busted when cops pulled him over in Rice Lake, WI around 2 AM on June 13. Cops say the license plate of the vehicle was listed to an unlicensed driver ... who was in the passenger seat, while Shock G drove.

It's unclear how cops found the drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, but they arrested the now 53-year-old Shock G. He posted a mere $100 bail upon his release.

He had performed with Naughty by Nature 2 days before the arrest.

Officers did NOT book Shock G for putting satin on panties.

Exclusive Details

George Clooney doesn't need your Target gift card for diapers and strollers, because he and Tequila partner Rande Gerber just scored a billion bucks by selling their Casamigos brand.

The buyer -- Diageo, a British alcohol beverage company.

George and Rande agreed to stay with the company, which means they'll rake in even more.

The 2 bros, along with Michael Meldman, created the brand just 4 years ago ... so their return is spectacular.

Rande tells TMZ he's shocked at how much money they made, saying, "We never could have imagined it."

Keyshawn Johnson Yanks Son From Nebraska ... After Weed Bust

6/21/2017 8:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Keyshawn Johnson has pulled his son, Keyshawn Johnson Jr., off the Nebraska football team (at least temporarily) weeks after the WR was busted for weed in his college dorm.

Key Jr. was one of the top high school WRs in the country -- but ultimately chose Nebraska. 

Earlier this month, the 19-year-old was cited for marijuana possession after university police found pot and drug paraphernalia in his dorm.

Now, Key Sr. -- who played in the NFL for 11 years -- has confirmed that his son is taking an "extended leave of absence" from the football program to "mature" for 6 months.

Keyshawn Sr. told Omaha.com the decision to pull his kid was his alone.

"I never asked him," Johnson Sr. said referencing his son.

"At the end of the day, I don’t think that decision was in his hands. He squandered that decision. He still wants to play football, and he still wants to play for Nebraska. But if you don’t do the things you’re supposed to do, under the guidelines of me, it’s not going to happen."

He added, "One thing you will not do as my son is you will not embarrass Nebraska, you will not embarrass Mike Riley and you will not embarrass this family."

Keyshawn Jr. has since returned home to Calabasas.

Miles Teller Blames Bar for Overserving Him Before Arrest

6/20/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Miles Teller blames a San Diego bar for overserving him and putting him in a state that got him arrested.

This video was shot at PB Shore Club ... the place Miles and his buddies were partying Saturday night. TMZ broke the story ... Miles got so drunk he attracted the attention of a cop who saw him on a sidewalk, nearly falling into traffic. Police say Miles was uncooperative and they ended up arresting and booking him for public intoxication.

Late Monday he simply said, "I blame Shore Club" -- insinuating the bartenders shoulda cut him off.

Miles called out TMZ, saying he was not arrested but rather detained, despite the cops telling us he was not only arrested and booked, but they took his mug shot.

Tiger Woods I'm Getting Professional Help ... for Rx Pill Issues

6/19/2017 4:40 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods says he's getting "professional help" for his issues with prescription medication in the wake of his DUI arrest -- but he's not describing the situation as rehab. 

"I'm currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder," Woods said in a statement. 

"I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour."

As we previously reported, Woods was arrested on May 29 in Jupiter, FL -- and was extremely out of it. He could barely stand up straight and couldn't tie his shoes. 

Woods blamed his state on a bad mixture of prescription medication. 

Woods going public about the professional help could well be a strategy in his pending DUI case. It's often used to show the judge that he's taking his problem seriously, which could affect sentencing. 

Woods was spotted out in Florida with his kids over the weekend -- so it doesn't appear he's in a live-in facility for his treatment. 

Miles Teller Busted for Public Drunkenness Uncooperative with Cops

6/19/2017 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:08 PM PT -- Miles just tweeted, "Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn't arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime." 

For the record, the San Diego PD tells TMZ Miles was arrested and booked for misdemeanor public intoxication. They also took a mug shot. Miles Teller was arrested early Sunday morning after he was literally falling down drunk and refusing to cooperate with cops ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Teller was partying with a group of guys in San Diego when an officer noticed the actor was having trouble standing on the sidewalk. We're told the cop walked up to Miles and started questioning him, but he quickly became uncooperative. 

Our sources say that's when Teller lost his balance and almost fell into a traffic lane. The cop cuffed him, and Miles had trouble standing in one spot.

Now the turning point. San Diego offers a detox program where cops will take someone who is drunk to a center run by volunteers. The center has cots where someone can stay for 4 hours and sleep it off. The cop offered to take Miles there but we're told he refused.

At that point Miles could have been arrested, but cops still took him to the detox center ... hoping he'd cooperate. That didn't happen. We're told he refused to follow directions so the staff rejected him.

At that point, Miles was arrested for being drunk in public ... a misdemeanor. He was in jail for around 4 hours and he was released without bail.

Miles' rep had no comment.

Carrie Fisher Tests Revealed Cocaine, Other Opiates ... Unclear If They Contributed to Death

6/19/2017 8:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher had cocaine, morphine, codeine and oxycodone in her system when she was hospitalized after suffering a massive heart attack on board a flight to LAX.

The L.A. County Coroner released its full autopsy, including toxicology, and it revealed the slew of drugs. In addition to the cocaine and opiates found in a urine analysis ... there was also a very little amount of MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, and heroin. The dose and time both drugs were taken could not be determined. 

The report says it's unclear how much of a role, if any, the drugs played in her death on Dec. 27. 

As we told you on Friday, the coroner announced "sleep apnea and other undetermined factors" were the cause of death.

Gronk Racks Up $100k Tab ... At Casino Turn-Up

6/19/2017 8:50 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

How much does it cost to party with Rob Gronkowski for a night? More than most people make in a year ... 'cause Gronk and Co. racked up a HUGE $100k tab at a casino nightclub over the weekend.

TMZ Sports obtained the itemized receipt for Gronk and his 20-man party crew at Shrine at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut this weekend.

We spoke with a PR rep for the Shrine bar who says the receipt is legit. It's pretty awesome. 

In total, Gronk's gang tore through 160 BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE including:

- 18 bottles of Ace of Spades Rose: $18,000

- 15 bottles of Dom Perignon Rose: $27,000

There's more ... including 16 bottles of Grey Goose for $10,400, 45 orders of Maker's Mark, 24 shots of Jim Beam Fire, 3 bottles of Don Julio 1942. These guys weren't messin' around. 

It's unclear who footed the bill (most likely the casino) ... but it's not like Gronk can't afford it anyway -- dude's gonna make more than $4 mil next year.

It's good to be Gronk.

Lionel Richie's Bassist 911 Call ... Caller 'Can't Explain' Stabbing Situation

6/18/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The man who called for help when Lionel Richie's bassist, Ethan Farmer, allegedly stabbed himself after eating marijuana edibles may have been under the influence himself ... based on the 911 call.

We broke the story ... cops say Farmer was chowing down on pot cookies or brownies with friends when he turned violent and repeatedly stabbed himself.

The shocking nature of the situation was apparently too much to put into words for the guy who called 911, who simply said "I don't know" and "I can't explain it" when trying to describe the scene.

He also couldn't answer why a woman was screaming in the background or come up with Farmer's age.

Last we heard, the 42-year-old musician is recovering from his injuries.

'B.I.P' Corinne Olympios I Was So Drunk I did a Face-plant in the Jacuzzi

6/17/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios was so drunk when she got sexual with fellow "Bachelor in Paradise" castmate, DeMario Jackson, she did a face-plant in the Jacuzzi and after she was dragged and laying on the ground the sexual contact continued, but sources who have seen the video say it just didn't happen.

Sources involved in Corinne's representation tell TMZ ... she had a half a bottle of champagne in a vehicle before arriving at the bar, where she had some mixed drinks with hard liquor as well as one or 2 shots.

The sources say she did not object to the sexual contact and may have indeed consented, but they say she was not capable of consent, point to the "Jacuzzi face-plant" and being laid out on the ground.

They also claim a cast member told producers after the face-plant to stop, but they responded that she was "fine."  

But our sources who have seen the video say Corinne's version is "absolutely not true" ... no face-plant, no being laid out on the ground ... nothing like that. The sources who have seen the tape say she was clearly with it the entire time in the pool, and there's no ambiguity after seeing the video.

The sources add none of the cast members complained ... quite the opposite they say ... many have come forward to say Corinne knew exactly what she was doing. 

'Mob Wives' Star Renee Graziano Not Really Buying Drama in 'Paradise'

EXCLUSIVE

"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano just can't believe it ... drama in paradise?!

Renee was leaving Craig's Thursday night in WeHo when we asked her about the "Bachelor in Paradise" controversy over alleged sexual misconduct between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson in the pool.  As we reported, "B.I.P" has been put on ice while Warner Bros. investigates.

Renee knows a thing or 2 about excessive drinking. She's in recovery and knows all about boozing ... on and off camera. 

Michael Floyd Blames Booze Test On Late Night Kombucha Binge

6/16/2017 3:20 PM PDT
Breaking News

Michael Floyd wants you to believe that he failed his alcohol test after a long night of watching movies and pounding kombucha tea ... and NOT because he was drinking booze.

The Minnesota Vikings WR issued a statement through his agent explaining why at least 4 of his breath tests were flagged for alcohol ... despite the fact he was ordered by the judge to refrain from taking a single sip while under house arrest.

Here's the explanation from his agent:

"On June 10, 2017, Michael watched movies at his place of residence until 3:00 a.m. During that time, he drank several bottles of kombucha tea drinks, unaware that the drinks contain alcohol."

"On June 11, 2017 at 5:30 a.m., Michael was tested and his blood alcohol content was .055. Michael was tested again at 5:54 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was down to .045. Michael was tested again at 6:23 a.m. and his blood alcohol content was .044. He then went back to sleep and missed a test at 6:33 a.m."

As we previously reported, kombucha is a fermented tea that contains a small amount of alcohol -- typically the same or less than a non-alcoholic beer. 

The story seems fishy ... a late-night binge fueled by tea? It's possible. We'll see if the judge buys it when he appears in court on June 26.
