Adrien Broner I'm Sober Now ... But I Still Turn Up!!

2/24/2017 10:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Adrien Broner is high ... off life, telling TMZ Sports he's a responsible partier now ... "I don't drink no more."

We talked to Broner on his way out of Hollywood hot spot Le Jardin ... and as AB says, "y'all usually used to me coming out the club stumbling, but I don't drink no more. I'm sober. I'm partying sober."

It's good to see ... Broner's had his share of alcohol related drama in the past, including showing up to court drunk last year and a DUI in 2015.

But things seem to be lookin' up for the former boxing champ ... he won a fight last weekend, and he's sober.

FYI -- we also talked about Floyd Mayweather's birthday and Chris Brown fighting Soulja Boy.

Oprah Gets Behind the Tequila Wheel For 'Wrinkle' Wrap Party

2/23/2017 11:30 AM PST

Oprah knew exactly how to unwind at the end of shooting her new movie -- a little margarita mix and a lot of tequila.

O was in New Zealand Wednesday playing bartender for the cast and crew of "A Wrinkle in Time." Her co-star, Reese Witherspoon, seemed more than happy to let Oprah "get behind the tequila wheel!"

If the movie's half as good as this ... director Ava DuVernay's gonna score another hit. 

Best wrap party. Ever. 

Natty Light Sued You Can't Use My Face to Hawk Booze ... Says Beer Swilling Chick

2/22/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-main-kayla-kraft-tmz-facebook-02She doesn't always drink Natty Light, but when she does ... a North Carolina chick doesn't want her face slapped on beer ads, damn it!

Kayla Kraft is suing Anheuser-Busch -- makers of the not-so-primo pilsner -- over a photo she posted of herself sipping on a 12-ouncer. She says the pic began appearing in Natural Light's "Every Natty Has A Story" campaign -- first, on coasters distributed to Carolina bars, and then on posters in bars, restaurants and stores.

Kayla says she put the pic on FB for anyone to see, but never gave consent to become Natty Light's poster child. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she owns the copyright on the pic -- and has even registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Might seem like an odd move for a candid drinking pic, but she's going after the beer giant for a slice of its profits from the campaign.

David Cassidy Appears Drunk In Concert ... Slurs, Falls, Forgets

2/19/2017 8:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Cassidy seems to have fallen off the wagon -- and almost off the stage -- in what appears to be a drunken performance this weekend.

The former teen idol was playing a gig in Agoura (near L.A.) Saturday night, where he looked incredibly intoxicated throughout the show ... ultimately leading to a hard fall over a monitor.

David slurs through various songs and and takes long pauses, often forgetting lyrics. He said on stage that Sunday night is his final concert ever due to health reasons ... and he's retiring. 

David has been to rehab several times and has struggled with alcoholism.

We've reached out to Cassidy's rep ... so far, no word back.

Vince Young DWI Video Frustrated, Uncooperative 'Are We Going to Jail or Not?'

2/16/2017 3:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Vince Young straight threw in the towel during his '16 drunk driving arrest -- refusing to complete field sobriety tests after getting frustrated with the cop ... and ultimately saying, "Are we going to jail or not?"

TMZ Sports obtained the arrest video from January 24, 2016 which shows Young being pulled over in Austin, Texas, after the officer says he was driving erratically in his white truck. 

Young starts off being nice and cooperative ... but gets increasingly frustrated with the DWI investigation process. 

He refuses to get out of his car until the officer orders him out. 

He gets sick of the eye test and tells the officer he won't comply. 

At one point he says, "What's the problem? Are we going to jail or not?"

The officer finally gets fed up when Young refuses a breath test and arrests the ex-NFL star.

Officials later determined Young's blood alcohol content was THREE TIMES the legal limit. He cut a plea deal and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

Plies DUI Arrest Check Out My Tee It's a Scream

2/15/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Plies was arrested for DUI by some pretty stonefaced cops, because it's borderline remarkable they didn't lose it as they gazed into the horrified eyes of one Kevin McCallister.

TMZ obtained the dash cam footage of the Florida rapper's January arrest ... the main attraction is definitely the "Home Alone" tee.

You hear the officer tell Plies he was driving the wrong way down a one-way street. Plies was cooperative ... calmly answering questions about a gun in the car.

Lauryn Hill Keeps Show Flowing While Drunk Fan Gets Booted

2/10/2017 12:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lauryn Hill didn't skip a beat as she was closing out her Nashville show ... even though a dude was getting booted right in front of the stage.

Hill was mid-song at Ryman Auditorium Thursday when a disturbance went down in the crowd. It's hard to tell exactly what happens in the video, but witnesses tell us a drunk guy was harassing a woman ... who was eventually lifted to the safety of the stage by security.

Cops say they got a call for a scuffle between two people and arrested a man for public intoxication, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct ... but it's unclear if it's from the same incident as the video.

Nobody plays it cool like Lauryn.

Charles Oakley Admits Drinking Before Altercation 'But None in the Garden'

2/10/2017 7:47 AM PST
Breaking News

Charles Oakley says he DID drink alcohol before things exploded at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night ... but insists he was not drinking INSIDE the arena. 

The Knicks legend sat down with FOX 5 in NYC and told the reporter before the interview that he believed the team was trying to portray him as a guy who was drunk and out of control at the time of the incident.

The reporter followed up on the claim when the camera was rolling ... and Oakley admitted to having "a couple drinks" before the game.

But Oakley seems to scoff at the suggestion alcohol had anything to do with the incident.

Steve Francis Ordered to Wear Ankle Monitor ... After Violating Bond

2/9/2017 2:28 PM PST
Breaking News

0209-steve-francis-tmz-01Steve Francis is the new Lindsay Lohan -- 'cause he was just ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet after violating the terms of his bond.

The trouble all stems from the ex-NBA star's drunk driving arrest back in November -- when cops say he was driving around Houston while hammered and in possession of weed.

At the time, Francis was released on bond -- and was ordered to NOT drink a drop of alcohol. He was also ordered to put a breathalyzer device in his car.

But, officials say he blew off his blowing obligations and didn't use the device -- a violation of the terms of his bond.

He appeared in court Thursday, where the judge dropped the hammer by ordering him to wear a SCRAM bracelet -- which constantly monitors alcohol consumption. It also has a GPS tracking device (he's not allowed to leave Texas).

If Francis doesn't get his new accessory by tomorrow, the judge says she will issue a warrant for his arrest.

Stay tuned ...

Super Bowl LI Cops Brace for Trump Protesters ... Marijuana Lovers Too

2/5/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0203-trump-protestors-super-bowl-tmz-getty-3The Houston Police Department is expecting the worst outside the Super Bowl and is ready to combat a wave of Prez Trump protesters making noise about disrupting the game.

Our law enforcement sources say officers, in uniform and undercover, will monitor crowds outside NRG Stadium. We're told several online groups have popped up in recent days organizing protests -- some anti-Trump, some for Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock and refugees.

HPD has plenty of backup, having borrowed cops from around the country. As usual for the Super Bowl ... we're told SWAT will be posted nearby if protests turn into riots and get out of hand.

One more thing -- stoners beware. Unlike the inauguration protests, we're told in and outside the stadium will be a weed-free zone. As one officer put it, "If people think they are going to bring dope into Texas, they're full of s***."

Lady Gaga I'm Turning into a Real Winer ... For 'Grigio Girls'

2/5/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0203-lady-gaga-wine-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-02Lady Gaga is about to one-up the singer who turned lemons into lemonade by turning grapes into delicious wine.

Gaga plans to launch her own brand of wine called "Grigio Girls" ... named after a bonus track on her 2016 album, Joanne. Her company filed paperwork to produce wine, wine coolers, wine cocktails and wine punches with the name.

We're guessing Pinot Grigio will be the flagship product.

"Grigio Girls" is a song inspired by Gaga's friend, Sonja, who has cancer -- it's about how Gaga and her girlfriends would get together, pop open a bottle and cry for her. So ... their own brand of wine seems like a perfect tribute.

Lady Gaga's not totally new to the food and drink biz, though -- her parents own an Italian restaurant in NYC called Joanne Trattoria.

WWE's Sunny I Tried To Save Chyna Right Before She Died

2/4/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

WWE legend Tammy Sytch says she has "tremendous guilt feelings" about the death of her good friend, Chyna ... admitting she failed to get her the help she needed when she saw Chyna struggling.

Sytch -- aka Sunny -- was on her way to court-ordered rehab this week when she told us Chyna's death has been on her mind for months. The two were very close and would FaceTime every night.

The Hall of Famer says she recognized Chyna was going down a bad path and tried to convince her to go to rehab -- but she refused, and died while Sytch was seeking treatment for herself.

Obviously, Chyna's death isn't Tammy's fault ... but Sytch says she wishes she could've gotten her friend to see the light. Chyna passed away in April after overdosing on Rx pills and booze.

As for Tammy ... her next stop is another stint in rehab to combat her ongoing alcohol issues -- and she says she's receiving the full support of the WWE.
