Just one month after they called it quits, the "Basketball Wives LA" star announced that Scandrick suddenly popped the question at a movie theater in Sherman Oaks, CA. 

"He got down on one knee and as soon as he started to talk I got nervous and couldn't help but to laugh hysterically. I was laughing and crying at the same time," Draya told People

As for the ring ... we spoke to Orlando's famous jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills who tells us it's almost 7 carats, with a MASSIVE diamond in the center ... and it's valued at  $400,000!!! 

"Orlando is one of the most detail-oriented clients I've ever worked with. Orlando was very serious about keeping it a secret."

Draya and Orlando have been dating for roughly two years ... and for the past few months, Draya's been very clear that she wanted a RING on her finger. 

Sooooo ...... congrats!

Exclusive Details

0617-karrueche-memphis-instagramupdate_graphic_red_bar 8:47 AM PT -- Sources connected to Karrueche tell us ... Memphis recognized Karrueche while hanging out at a club and asked for a photo.

We're told the whole exchange was friendly ... but they're definitely NOT dating. 

update_grey_gray_barShe already kicked Chris Brown to the curb ... now, Karrueche Tran is kickin' it with an International soccer star ... and this guy is RICH! 

Tran was hanging out in Miami with Memphis Depay -- a Dutch soccer superstar who plays for Manchester United. 

In fact, the 21-year-old phenom just signed a reported $40 MILLION contract with Man U back in May -- so, dude's got money. 

So far, no word if Karrueche and Memphis are friends ... more than friends ... or nothing at all. 

But if there is something there ... upgrade?

'Walking Dead'

Norman Reedus & Emily Kinney

Wouldn't Be Caught Dead Dating

6/18/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0617-main-norman-reedus-emily-TMZ-01'Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon is not dating his fellow survivor pal Beth Greene in real life ... so he says.

Norman Reedus' rep tells TMZ, the actor's relationship with former co-star Emily Kinney is strictly platonic.

We got these pics of Norman and Emily at Paper Plane, a dive bar in Decatur, GA. It looks real chummy, but the two have been good pals for a while and that's it. 

She had a concert in the area earlier in the evening and they hung out afterward.

Emily played Beth on the zombie thriller but was killed off last year. Their characters were in the same survival group and he was protective like a bro.  

Too bad ... we were rooting for more.

Zac Efron

Dogfight Over Shark Encounter

6/17/2015 1:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Zac Efron was either a noble conservationist or a reckless yahoo when he dove with a tiger shark.

Shark experts could not be more divided. Naturalist Juan Oliphant, who set up the dive in Hawaii with Zac and Adam Divine, tells TMZ the point was to show the beauty of sharks so people will think twice before poaching them for fin soup. 

But shark photog Jeff Kurr felt Zac's dive was not only reckless, it could actually make sharks even more hated and feared. He says tiger sharks are extremely dangerous and unpredictable.

Oliphant says Zac and Adam were extremely respectful and the shark was "mellow and uninterested in people," but Kurr says grabbing a fin is an aggressive invite to a deadly attack.

 FYI ... in Hawaii, tiger shark attacks outnumber great white attacks.

Drake

From 'Degrassi' to Compton ...

Thanks to The Game

Exclusive Details

0616-drake-game-party-group-INSTAGRAM-01Drake earned his official Compton 'hood pass -- a far cry from his Degrassi High hall pass days -- all because he was rolling with The Game

Game played ambassador ... taking Drake to his hometown to shoot a music video for their song "8 More Than 92," which will be on Game's new album, "The Documentary 2." Aside from the video shoot, we're told Game thought this was a great opportunity to introduce Drake to the real side of town.

Let's face it ... the tough streets of Toronto ain't that tough, and no one's ever mistaken Drizzy for a gangsta. But Compton welcomed him with open arms ... and Drake posed with all the homies, even the ones throwing up gang signs.

Just to keep it 100 ... there was a brief run-in with 5-0 as cops showed up for an overzealous fan who had wandered on set. 

Drake. Officially 'hood approved.

'Big Brother'

Taps Ex-Texas A&M Football Player

... With Abs

6/16/2015 2:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0616_clay_honeycutt_sexy_photos_launchThe next "Big Brother" HoH could be a guy from A&M ... 'cause one of the contestants is a former Aggies football player -- who also happens to have a pretty insane physique. 

The ex-football player is 23-year-old Clay Honeycutt -- a former defensive back for Texas A&M who graduated in 2014. 

We spoke with Clay's dad Lynn -- who also played for the Aggies -- and he told us he thinks Clay's football background will give him an edge on the competition.  

"There's a wide diversity of people in the cast and football will help him because he has always gotten along with different groups of people. He's had all kinds of different roommates, so I think that will help him."

One of those people was Johnny Manziel ... who played at A&M from 2011 to 2013. 

The game begins June 24th ... in the meantime, check out the pics. 

Ex-NBA Ref Tim Donaghy

Joining White Prison Gang

'Saved My Life'

6/16/2015 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0616-tim-donaghy-getty-01Ex-NBA ref Tim Donaghy tells TMZ Sports he owes his life to the leader of a white prison gang ... saying he would've been murdered behind bars if not for their protection.

Donaghy was infamously sentenced to 15 months of hard time back in '08 for his role in an NBA gambling scandal. While locked up, the ex-ref says he was brutally attacked by a fellow inmate.

"I was a target. There was a guy who took a paint roller extension pole and blasted me in the knee a few times," Donaghy tells TMZ Sports. "I had to have surgery to relieve the pain when I got out of prison."

The Donaghy says after the attack, he needed to find protection if he was going to survive his stint ... so he started to hang out with the only group that offered to have his back. 

"Whites run together, blacks run together, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Italians."

Donaghy says the white gang wanted to initiate him with a prison tattoo -- involving a pin and ink from a pen -- but he managed to talk the guys into "option #2" ... a shaved head. 

"It was a matter of me surviving, and getting the f**k outta there" ... Donaghy says.

T.D. says he owes his life to one of the leaders ... a guy nicknamed "St. Pete" ... "Thank God I teamed up with him. He saved my life. There's no doubt about it, I never would've survived if it weren't for St. Pete."

They've even maintained a relationship after prison ... "We've stayed in touch. Every now and then we'll talk on the phone. We even got lunch once."

Who says jail friendships don't last?

0616_blackhawks_team_shirtless_celebration_launchThe Chicago Blackhawks brought a 6-pack to the Stanley Cup celebration -- with defenseman Johnny Oduya ripping his shirt off in the middle of a nightclub ... in a crazy celebrity turn up!  

Oduya -- along with teammates Corey Crawford, Brandon Saad, Kris Versteeg and Scott Darling -- hit up The Mid nightclub in Chicago ... where they used Lord Stanley's favorite piece of silverware to sip expensive bubbly, like so many have before.  

And who was supplying the beats? World famous DJ ($32 millon a year famous) Tiesto -- who pumped the club full of EDM and hip-hop hits while the crowd went insane! 

At some point in the night Oduya's shirt came off ... dude's got some championship abs.

Kanye West

Snoozing Kanye Called Out By Elsa

... At 'Frozen' Show

6/16/2015 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0616-arrow-kim-kanye-sleeping-facebook-01Kanye West isn’t the biggest "Frozen" fan in the world and the ice princess onstage at Disneyland gave him a cold stare for it.

Kanye must have been exhausted from walking around the park for North West’s birthday -- 'cause he caught some major ZZZZZs during the "Frozen" sing-along show. The problem for Daddy West is he's pretty high profile.

A Disney employee noticed him, umm ... resting his eyes, and later said on FB and Twitter ... “when you perform for the Kardashian family for North’s birthday…and Kanye sleeps through the whole show.”

Our park sources tell us the employee was the woman who played Elsa. We're also told Kanye passed out for the entire performance, which is only 25 minutes. So, kinda perfect time for a nap.

Bottom line here ... Kanye's just like most other dads.

Dwyane Wade

Studied LeBron

During Harvard Course

6/15/2015 4:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0615_lebron_dwade_tmz_instagramWhen Dwyane Wade hit the books at Harvard last week, he probably had an edge on his fellow classmates -- 'cause one of the topics was his BFF LeBron James ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

FYI -- Wade took part in a 4-day course called "The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports" ... which required him to live on campus, eat at the student dining hall and basically study his ass off for 4 straight days. 

We're told Wade didn't coast through the course -- several Harvard faculty members tell us D-Wade was very impressive and had one hell of a work ethic.

Wade and his classmates were required to brush up on case studies on several high profile people and sports teams ... including Beyonce, Real Madrid and LeBron. 

0615_dwayne_wade_sub_instagramNFL superstar Brandon Marshall took the course last year ... and came back to speak to the 51 students in the class this year -- and today, he told "TMZ Hollywood Sports" what it takes to make the grade. 

It's no joke ... Marshall says the course is super tough and super competitive ... but he also told us the #1 thing athletes should take away from the class. 

Pay attention.

'Married at First Sight' Couple

Till Death Threats Do Us Part

6/15/2015 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0615-married-at-first-sight-AE-01Love at first sight doesn't always work out, especially when the guy allegedly threatens to kill his spouse.

Jessica Castro just got a restraining order against Ryan De Nino, the husband she met on the show "Married at First Sight," claiming he had been threatening and menacing, but the last straw was when he told her, "I plan on killing you and your family."

The couple married in December, not having known each other even for a day. Producers of the A&E reality show paired them after psychological testing for compatibility.

The show chronicled the marriage for 6 weeks, and they've been living privately ever since, but not without drama. They reportedly had blow out fights and alleged substance abuse.

The restraining order was granted last Friday and requires Ryan to stay clear of Jessica and her family.

Jameis Winston

86'd from Bar Over Wardrobe

'Welcome to Return with Pants'

Exclusive Details

0615-jameis-winston-twitter-01Jameis Winston learned the hard way ... star power stops at the shorts -- especially when trying to get into a bar with a strict PANTS ONLY dress code. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB was rejected from the Blue Martini bar in Tampa when he tried to get in Friday night while wearing a pair of shorts ... in front of a sign that said, "Dress code strictly enforced."

We spoke with one of the managers ... who tells us, "It was nothing personal. He was not allowed inside because he did not meet the standards of the dress code."

We're told the bar would ABSOLUTELY welcome Jameis back if he comes around again ... as long as he's got pants.
