Diddy & Cassie We're Back On!! And the Cops Are Off the Case

8/26/2016 3:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0826_pdidd_cassie_tmz_getty-3Cassie's had a change of heart -- she's back with Diddy ... despite a domestic incident last week in which cops were called.

We broke the story ... Cassie dumped Diddy and a heated argument ensued. Diddy allegedly grabbed Cassie's phone, jumped out of the car they were in and skedaddled.

The Beverly Hills police investigated the incident and determined it was just one of those things and no crime was committed. Diddy gave the phone back and there was no violence, so it came down to a case of no harm, no foul.

Even if the cops saw it differently, Cassie made it clear she didn't want her boo prosecuted so it would have been dropped anyway.

Make it work, guys.

Prince Tour Paisley Park Courtesy of Elvis Presley

Exclusive Details

0824-paisley-park-graceland-getty-01Prince's home is now the domain of the King -- as in Elvis Presley's people running tours at Paisley Park.

The bank that manages Prince's estate -- Bremer Trust -- just announced the deal that puts the people who run Graceland in charge of public tours, which are set to begin in October.

Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, is reportedly on board with the Elvis plan, but sources close to the heirs tell TMZ not everyone in the family agrees.

We're told the dissenting family members objected, in part, because Graceland Holdings has previously had financial problems. As it stands, team Elvis would get 50% of revenue generated by Paisley Park tours.

We're told Bremer's currently negotiating with the family in hopes of getting everyone on board, but that's more for PR purposes. Fact is, the tours are going to happen ... but it seems the bank just wants to make sure Prince family members don't publicly bad mouth the deal.

0823-doc-gooden-darryl-strawberry-TMZ-01Doc Gooden says he's officially ending his public feud with Darryl Strawberry ... telling TMZ Sports, "I'm moving on with my life" after trading nasty barbs with his ex-Mets teammate. 

Things went south between Doc and Darryl on Thursday -- when Doc no-showed at an event and Strawberry chalked it up to drugs. 

"My fear is that -- and I know addiction -- and my fear is people that don’t change, they die," Strawberry told the crowd ... "I just hope the light comes on soon before it’s too late."

Gooden was PISSED -- and responded on Monday night by not only declaring he's been sober for 4 years ... but also accusing Strawberry of infidelity. 

"Darryl has a drug rehab in his name, he is supposed to be a pastor. I call him Lucifer," Doc said.

But Gooden now tells TMZ Sports he's calling off his attack -- and officially ENDING his war on Strawberry. 

"I've been doing interviews for over 2 days. I'm sorry, I'm over this. I'm done with the Straw stuff. I'm moving on with my life."

0822-karl-malone-national-guard-military-INSTAGRAM-01Karl Malone came through with an assist John Stockton would be proud of -- hooking up 5 members of the National Guard on Louisiana flood relief duty with free food and cigars. 

Malone was at Walk-On's Bistreaux in Baton Rouge on Thursday -- when he ran into Staff Sergeant Doug Sevier and 4 of his fellow responders.

We're told Malone -- who's from Louisiana -- thanked the guys for their service ... and refused to let them pay their tab. 

But the coolest part, Staff Sgt. Sevier says Malone went to his car and grabbed 6 cigars from his personal collection -- and handed them out (with one for himself, of course). 

"He was very, very easy to talk to," Sevier tells TMZ Sports. "He was engaging and seemed to genuinely care what each of us had to say. It was an extremely positive experience."

U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Charity Donation to Boost Brazil's Olympians

8/22/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0820-James-Feigen-gettySwimmer Jimmy Feigen's nearly $11k deal to avoid a Rio jail could backfire against future Team USA Olympians.

TMZ has learned Feigen's $10,800 donation has been tagged to spruce up training facilities for the Reaction Institute in the Rio favela known as City of God. Specifically, we're told the money is going to help fix walls and prevent weather damage to judo equipment. 

That equipment is used to give children from the favelas judo training, and put them on the road to becoming Olympians -- who might one day whoop-up on American judo fighters. Brazil's judo gold medalist this year, Rafaela Silva, once trained at the Institute ... so it has a good track record. 

As we reported, Feigen struck a deal with prosecutors in Rio ... who agreed to let him off the hook, if he made the donation.

Folks at the Reaction Institute are pumped for the dough, and tell us they hope Jimmy will visit once the work is done -- but we're guessing he won't be back in Brazil anytime soon.

Exclusive Details

0822-todd-marinovich-mug-shot-TMZ-SPORTS-01Ex-USC quarterback Todd Marinovich -- who also played for the L.A. Raiders -- was arrested for possession of meth in Irvine, CA ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We spoke with Commander Hallinan of the Irvine PD who tells us they got a call about a naked man on the Venta Spur walking trail on Friday night ... and officers eventually found Marinovich in a nearby backyard.

Marinovich was still naked when cops arrived. We're told he was cooperative. 

Cops searched the area and found a brown bag containing meth, weed and Todd's I.D.

He was arrested and cited for possession of a controlled substance, trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Marinovich has since been released. 

The 47-year-old has struggled with substance abuse since his playing days -- but seemed to be on a good path back in 2011, when he said he'd been sober for 3 years and had taken up painting. 

'Rica Famosa Latina' Brawl Real Blood and Broken Glass ... Take THAT 'Housewives'

8/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Two of the 'Rica Famosa Latina' stars turned a scripted fight into a very real, very gangsta showdown that landed one of 'em in the hospital with a bloodied face.

Cast members Sandra and Victoria were taping a scene at a fashion event in Culver City when the brawl started. According to the police report, producers had planned (yes, that's how reality shows really work) to shoot the women arguing over a dress. 

We're told Victoria was supposed to throw a glass of wine on a mannequin, and then Sandra would throw a glass of wine back at Victoria.

0819-victoria-vs-sandra-rica-famosa-latina-01But Sandra went off script, according to cops ... attacking Victoria by smashing the wine glass over her head and then cutting her with the jagged, broken end. Victoria was rushed to a hospital with cuts on her head and chest.

Despite the injuries, law enforcement sources tell us neither women will be charged. They're chalking it up to mutual combat for a TV show. BTW ... way better combat than the 'Real Housewives' typically offer.

¡Esto es showbiz, chica!

Ryan Lochte Brazilian Judge Demands Passport ... But He's Back In U.S.

8/17/2016 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0817-ryan-lochte-gettyA Brazilian judge has ordered for the IMMEDIATE seizure of Ryan Lochte's passport -- claiming he may have lied about a robbery incident in Rio ... but the swimmer is already back in the U.S. 

Brazilian authorities have issued a statement to TMZ Sports saying, "Judge Keyla Blanc De cnop, the Special Court of the Fan and Major Events, ordered the dispatch of search warrants and seizure of passports of American swimmers Ryan Lochte and James Feigen."

"With this, they are prohibited from leaving the country."

Lochte and Feigen had claimed they were together when their taxi cab was stopped and the swimmers were robbed by people posing as cops. 

Brazilian authorities say they have found contradictions in the swimmers' stories -- and they want to speak with them both ASAP. 

Officials say Lochte claimed they were only robbed by ONE person. Feigen said there were multiple culprits. 

Officials also point to surveillance video that shows the swimmers in good spirits when they returned to the Olympic Village after the alleged incident -- not acting like people who were just robbed at gunpoint. 

We spoke with Lochte's attorney, Jeff Ostrow, who tells us straight up -- "I have no information from Brazilian authorities that they want his passport."

"I’m shocked to hear that they would go to such measures in an effort to further investigate the incident as he has been nothing but cooperative with authorities, including sitting for a full interview with the Tourist Police, U.S. State Department, USOC Security, FBI, and anyone else that requested to be present."

He added, "Ryan is safely back in the United States."

No word on the whereabouts of Feigen.

A7FL Tackle Football League No Pads, No Helmets FULL CRAZY

8/16/2016 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

This.Is.Insane.

What if we told you there was a full-contact tackle football league where ex and future professional players break each other off viciously WITH NO HELMETS? Crazy, right?

Crazy enough to be damn true ... it's called A7FL ... a 7-on-7 pigskin league with absolutely zero safety equipment protecting the players from demolishing each other.

We spoke to A7FL's CEO and co-founder, Sean Korkusuz, who says the 2-year-old organization is starting to pick up steam.

"The response we have been getting since we have been doing this has been tremendous," Korkusuz says.

As far as the players ... Sean says there's athletes of all talent levels who play in the A7FL right now ... and some of them have left to pursue careers in the softer, less hardcore league.

"Daryl Virgies is a guy who came through our league then went to a small college in Virginia, he just had his NFL pro day in the last few months."

As far as the safety of the players, competing in such a brutal game with no protection ... Sean had only one thing to say. 

"All athletes sign a player injury waiver and all athletes must be 18 or older."

You've been warned ...

LeBron teamed up with Chase Bank to help pay for the shindig ... which also offers an opportunity to attend a sit-down convo with the King himself.

Free college AND free roller coasters? Where do we sign up?

Exclusive Details

0729-playboy-mansion-getty-01Hugh Hefner can officially slap a "SOLD" sign onto his Playboy Mansion, and then head back inside for dinner ... after hammering out a deal with the PBR heir who almost lost it 11 days ago. 

The escrow closed Tuesday for Hef's neighbor Daren Metropoulos -- and we're told it went for a final price of $100 million ... a nice discount off the $110 mil offer Daren nearly closed earlier this month

We're told the compromise was lower price, but Hef gets to maintain access to the home for the rest of his life. Bottom line: Daren can't pop over whenever he wants. However, as the new landlord ... he does get to approve all parties at the mansion.

Daren -- a master re-brander of products and the Pabst Blue Ribbon heir -- who's been living next door since 2009 has already given the thumbs-up to Playboy's Midsummer Night's Dream Party next Saturday ... and the annual Halloween bash.

We're told he plans to connect the adjacent home he owns with the Playboy Mansion and restore both estates to their original versions. Daren was represented by Coldwell Banker agent Jade Mills & Mauricio Umansky represented Playboy.
