Exclusive Details

0926_greg_hardy_mushot_wmFormer NFL star Greg Hardy was arrested for possession of COCAINE late Sunday night in Texas ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to the police report, Hardy was pulled over in a 2010 Dodge Challenger because he didn't use a turn signal.

Cops say Hardy and his passenger told them they had just eaten at Applebee's and were headed home. Police asked them if they had anything illegal inside the vehicle, and Hardy said no ... and then gave them permission to search the car. 

Police say they found a Louis Vuitton wallet on the center console -- which contained, "a purple plastic baggie containing a white pasty substance," along with multiple gun range membership cards. They also found a brown weed grinder.

Cops say they tested the substance in the LV wallet -- and it came back as cocaine. According to the report, Hardy told cops he didn't know what it was and said someone must've put it in there when he passed his wallet around at a party the night before.

Hardy was arrested for felony possession of a controlled substance -- less than a gram. He was taken to Richardson City Jail ... where his bail was set at $5K. 

On the report, the former Pro Bowler is listed as "unemployed."

Hardy was arraigned Monday morning ... and bailed himself out moments ago.

Brad Pitt Conflict Over Confrontation with Son on Jet

9/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-brad-pitt-getty-10Brad Pitt crossed a line he had never crossed before by lunging at his 15-year-old son on a private jet and making contact with him, but the details of precisely what happened are in conflict ... and frankly, murky.

TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services launched an investigation after getting an anonymous tip that Brad allegedly attacked his eldest son on a trip back from France. 

Here's what's alleged -- Shortly after the plane took off, Brad and Angelina began arguing and Maddox jumped up to verbally defend his mom. We're told Brad then lunged at the boy and Angelina jumped in between them to block her husband. Brad connected in some fashion with his son.

Now here's what's in dispute:

-- Whether Brad and Angelina were arguing, or whether Maddox was acting up on the plane.

-- Whether Brad made contact with his son intentionally or inadvertently.

-- Whether Brad was drunk at the time. Although authorities were told Brad was drunk when the incident went down, we're told Angelina says he was sober at the time but got drunk later in the flight. Sources connected with Brad tell TMZ he was drunk at the time of the incident.

As we reported, Angelina wants sole physical custody of the kids. A source connected with Angelina says this is not about alcohol ... she would never leave Brad if it was just a substance abuse problem. The source says this is all about protecting their children.

Brad has denied there was any abuse, but sources connected with him acknowledge there was an incident on the jet.

And our sources say Brad has never acted aggressively toward his kids in the past -- other than verbally -- and Angelina felt the incident on the plane was a deal breaker.

Brad Pitt Rich History of Smoking Weed and Drinking

9/20/2016 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brad Pitt has had a rich history of drinking and smoking weed ... something he said he gave up once he became a parent, but clearly Angelina Jolie begs to differ.

Check out Brad during a 2009 appearance on Bill Maher's show, rhapsodizing about rolling the perfect joint, but maintaining those days were behind him.

Quentin Tarantino told Jimmy Kimmel the same year how he and Brad were at Brad's vineyard and drank a half dozen bottles of vino and smoked it up.

TMZ broke the story ... Angelina filed for divorce Monday, and we're told she says it's because he's smoking weed, drinking alcohol and that combined with an anger problem poses a risk to their kids.


Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt It's About Their Kids, NOT That Actress

9/20/2016 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmzAngelina Jolie did NOT file for divorce because of rumors Brad Pitt was reportedly involved with Marion Cotillard ... it's ALL about Brad and their 6 kids ... sources with intimate knowledge of the situation tell TMZ. 

There are reports swirling that Brad hooked up with Marion on the set of their movie, "Allied," and that's why Angelina filed for divorce. Untrue.

0920_brad_pitt_marion_cotillard_footer_2We now have even more sources telling us ... Angelina reached her breaking point last week over Brad's consumption of weed and alcohol, and combined with what she says are Brad's anger issues ... his interactions with the kids created a deal breaking problem for her.

We're told squarely ... no third person is involved. 

TMZ broke the story ... Angelina filed for divorce Monday and is asking for sole physical custody of their kids. She wants him to only have visitation.

We're also told as far as anyone involved knows ... there's no plan for Brad to go to rehab, at least as of now.

Jim Carrey My Prescription Alias Is Kosher ... Under the Law

9/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919-jim-carrey-TMZ-01Jim Carrey has a legal path out of at least part of the wrongful death lawsuit over his ex-GF, but his doctor might not be so lucky.

Sources close to Cathriona White's estranged husband, Mark Burton, tell us his legal team believes there are "serious questions relating to the conduct of Carrey's physician."

As we've reported, Cathriona OD'd on Ambien, Propranolol, and Percocet. In his wrongful death suit, Burton says all 3 drugs were found in pill bottles with the name Arthur King ... which he claims is an alias Jim used to get prescriptions.

We're told Burton's legal team is strongly considering reporting Carrey's doc to the Medical Board of California for violating laws prohibiting use of false info on prescriptions.

Jim's people aren't sweating it, telling us the meds were legally obtained using "routine practices." They add, most actors regularly use an alias to protect their privacy, and do so with "the knowledge of their doctors and insurers."

We checked, and the way the law is worded Jim looks to be in the clear.

His doctor could still be screwed though ... because under the law physicians can't "make a false statement in any prescription." In the past, doctors found in violation of prescribing meds under false names -- like Anna Nicole Smith's doctor -- have lost their license and faced criminal prosecution.update_graphic_red_bar7:00 AM PT -- Burton's attorney Michael Avenatti tells us they firmly believe Carrey did violate the law, and there's legal precedent to back it up.


Boxing Champ Zab Judah Gave Fake Name After Car Crash ... Are You Drunk???

9/20/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former boxing superstar Zab Judah tried to lie after a Vegas car crash back in January -- claiming his name was "Michael Johnson" ... and the whole thing was caught on video.

The 38-year-old boxer allegedly smashed into another car at 7 AM on January 29th -- and the victim pulled out her phone to document the aftermath.

You can see Judah -- a former 4 time world champ -- in the driver's seat ... slurring his words as he's confronted by the other driver.

When the woman asks for his name, Judah says, "Michael Johnson."

The woman told Judah he "smacked the s*** out of me" and was responsible for the damage and her injuries.

She also told Judah she was calling the police because it was "obvious" he had been drinking. However, we've done some digging and can't find a record of Judah being arrested for DUI on that date.

Sources connected to the incident tell us Judah's insurance company settled with the woman ... and it was only then that the woman learned Judah's true identity.

We reached out to Judah's camp for comment. So far, no word back.

Jim Carrey Wrongful Death Lawsuit ... Shameless Shakedown

9/19/2016 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919_jim_carrey_Cathriona-White_getty_instagramThe estranged husband of Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend -- who died of a drug OD -- is an opportunist who is trying to smear the actor to make a buck ... so claims Carrey's indignant lawyer.

Jim's attorney, legal pit bull Marty Singer, tells TMZ his client shares no blame in the death of Cathriona White, who died from a massive drug OD. As we reported, White's estranged husband, Mark Burton, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey, claiming he gave White the Ambien, Percocet and Propranolol that killed her.

Singer calls BS on the allegation, telling us White "stole" Carrey's Rxs, adding his client NEVER gave White a single pill.

Carrey is making it clear he has NO intention of settling the suit, telling us ... "There are moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world. I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved."

He adds, "Cat's troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone's control. I really hope someday soon people will stop trying to profit from this and let her rest in peace."

His attorney also insinuates White and Burton were in a sham marriage so she would not be deported back to Ireland. Singer says the 2 didn't even live together, so the notion he suffered a loss of companionship is absurd.

Singer calls the lawsuit "a money-grab scheme." 

NBA's Jabari Parker Crushes Beer Pong ... At College Party

9/19/2016 8:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jabari Parker proved he's a serious threat as a shooter -- at least when it comes to beer pong. 

The Milwaukee Bucks star hit up a house party near the Milwaukee School of Engineering on Saturday night -- and partied with a bunch of the students. 

But the highlight of the evening ... when Parker was asked to join in on the B.P. game -- and crushed shot after shot after shot! 

Sources at the party tell TMZ Sports Parker was super nice to everyone and people were stoked he was there ... especially the girls.

We're told Parker has a friend on the MSOE basketball team -- and that's why he was there. 

He was super social with people and took pics with anyone who asked.

Beer pong is apparently super popular with NBA stars -- Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley have gotten into the sport in recent years. 

But from what we're told ... Parker would wipe the floor with the old guys. 


Jim Carrey Sued for Supplying Ex with Fatal Drugs ... Then Covering It Up

9/19/2016 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0919_jim_carrey_tmzJim Carrey is being accused of facilitating his ex-girlfriend's death by providing the pills that killed her ... so claims the woman's estranged husband in a new lawsuit.

Cathriona White died September 24, 2015, after OD'ing on Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet. The suit claims all 3 drugs were found in pill bottles bearing the name Arthur King ... the pseudonym for Jim.

BTW ... it's illegal in California to get prescriptions by misrepresenting who you are.

The suit claims 3 or 4 days before White died Carrey gave her the pills in question. The suit also alleges Carrey tried to cover his tracks after her death, texting her he either misplaced the drugs or she may have taken them without his knowledge.

According to the suit, Carrey knew White was prone to depression and even tried to commit suicide in the past, which makes it more egregious if he supplied her with drugs.

The gorilla that was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo back in May now has his own marijuana wax -- Harambe OG.

The wax -- a THC concentrate similar to hash -- was created for Natural Remedies, a Colorado dispensary.

The lab manager who made the wax tells us he was blanking on a name, but became inspired by the products in the mix -- Gorilla Glue #4, Deadhead OG and Angel OG. 

Gorilla + Dead + Angel. Ergo, Harambe.

Harambe OG was just released this week, and it's already selling like hotcakes.
