Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested for Shoplifting ... Wanted Man

7/24/2017 10:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:09 PM PT -- Prince William County PD has released a statement about the incident -- 

"On June 22 around 1:30AM, officers responded to the WAWA located at 2051 Daniel Start Sq in Woodbridge to investigate a larceny in progress.

An employee reported to police that a man ran out of the store without paying for some merchandise. When officers arrived, they located the man in the parking lot.

Following the investigation, the accused, identified as Rodney Darnell Whitehead - age 25, was charged with petit larceny and released on a court summons."

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead was arrested in Virginia in June for shoplifting -- and now a warrant has been issued for his arrest ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 25-year-old was busted in Prince William County, VA on June 22 for shoplifting/petit larceny under $200. We're told Whitehead allegedly took stuff from a convenience store. 

He was ordered to appear in court on July 6, but according to court records he didn't show up -- so a warrant was issued for his arrest. He's since been charged for failure to appear. 

We reached out to Whitehead's rep -- so far, no word back. 

FYI, Whitehead was undrafted but signed a 3-year $1.5 million contract with the team in 2015. 

Whitehead isn't the first Cowboys player to be accused of shoplifting -- ex-Dallas running back Joseph Randle was busted stealing cologne and mens underwear from a Texas department store in 2014. 

Wiz Khalifa I Pack Punches Like I Pack Bowls Intense MMA Training!!

7/24/2017 10:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa's next big show could be in the Octagon because the superstar rapper -- who's known as a smoker, not a fighter -- has been busting his ass doing MMA training.

TMZ Sports got this video of Wiz hitting the mitts with FOX's Jay Glazer, and working on his kicks with UFC star Cat Zingano. Pretty clear from the video ... he's taking it seriously, and we hear he's been at it like this for about 3 months at Unbreakable Gym on Sunset.

What's most impressive about this workout sesh is Wiz was on vacay! He was in Napa for a wine tasting trip -- with his gf, Izabela GuedesMichael Strahan and Glazer -- but brought his gear to do some training ... in between sipping cabs and zins.

Wine tasting and MMA? Just when ya think ya know a guy.

Cops: Michael Irvin's Accuser Did Cocaine and MDMA ... Before Alleged Incident

7/24/2017 9:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who accused Michael Irvin of rape tested positive for several drugs in her system after the alleged incident, including cocaine and ecstasy ... this according to prosecutors. 

According to a State Attorney report on the case, obtained by TMZ Sports, the accuser took a toxicology test at a nearby hospital just a few hours after the alleged incident in the early hours of Wednesday, March 22. She told officials she did not take any drugs that night and believes something was put in her drink.

But the toxicology report came back showing the presence of amphetamine, MDMA, cocaine and alcohol in her blood. Her B.A.C. was a .10 despite the fact she had stopped drinking hours before.

The woman later admitted to investigators that she took a "small amount" of Xanax and ecstasy on the 19th and 20th -- and fessed up to doing cocaine over the weekend. Officials didn't believe her cocaine excuse because coke metabolizes "almost immediately" and would likely not show up if taken that long ago. 

Either way, officials say they couldn't prove that Irvin provided any of the drugs to her.

There's more ... officials also did the blacklight test in Irvin's hotel room and did find some semen -- on the corner of a seat cushion. But they couldn't prove if it was Irvin's or someone who had previously stayed in the room. Gross.

Investigators also found video of the woman partying with Irvin earlier in the evening and even gyrating her hips around him near his hotel room.

Officials also say the woman underwent a vaginal swab after the alleged incident but there was no trace of Irvin's DNA.

Ultimately, prosecutors came to the following conclusion:

"The victim's inability to recall details, the inconsistent statements, her alcohol and drug use, coupled with the video evidence showing her voluntarily entering the hotel with the defendant and 2-and-a-half hours later exiting the hotel elevator with the defendant while not appearing upset, make this a case where there is not a reasonable likelihood of conviction."

Jessica Alba Giving That Bun Some Sun

7/24/2017 8:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jessica Alba's got her third bun in the oven ... and she's making sure it gets plenty of sun.

Alba's currently enjoying summer in Hawaii on the heels of news she's having another kid. She's already mom to 2 daughters -- 9-year-old Honor and 5-year-old Haven -- with husband Cash Warren.

There's no doubt that Alba's a MILF and looks incredible in nothing but a bikini and baby bump, although she might want to apply sunscreen more liberally, especially when it comes to her belly.

Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore ... Nobody Talks Crap About My Kids!

7/24/2017 7:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

'People v. O.J.' Star O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony Are All the Same to Me

7/24/2017 7:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony are NOT really free even though they're free ... according to Keesha Sharp.

Keesha -- who played Johnnie Cochran's wife on 'People v. O.J.' -- was at Bristol Farms Sunday in L.A. where we got her take on O.J. getting paroled. It's obvious the news pains her, but says it was the right decision.

That being said ... Keesha says a dark cloud will always follow Simpson, the same way it's followed Anthony since her not guilty verdict for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Keesha also has the Goldman family's back.

Blac Chyna I Got Fresh Ink! This Is Who I REALLY Love

7/24/2017 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's new tattoo paints a very clear picture of who comes first in her life, and it's not her new aspiring singer boyfriend.

As we previously reported ... Chyna's new boo, Mechie, got her initials tatted on his neck last week. Naturally, you'd think BC would reciprocate by getting his initials on her own skin. Not exactly.

Chyna might've taken the matching tattoo thing too literally but at least she's laying it all down from start of the relationship.

Looks like she learned a lesson from that Future situation.

Charles Barkley Gives Post-Prison Advice to O.J.

7/24/2017 6:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charles Barkley is rooting for O.J. Simpson -- telling TMZ Sports he really hopes the guy can "keep his act together" after prison ... and he's offering up some advice to stay out of trouble.

Unclear if Barkley and Simpson were friends before he went to prison, but it seems Sir Chuck feels bad for the disgraced NFL running back, judging by the clip.

Charles also makes it clear he wasn't impressed with the way O.J. handled himself during his parole hearing last week -- saying, "He's done everything possible to screw this thing up."

So, what's the game plan now? Charles has some marching orders for Juice. Wonder if he'll listen.

O.J. Simpson Too Toxic for a Book Deal ... Major Publishers Say

7/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson's still untouchable in the literary world -- most major publishers will NOT be scrambling to offer him a book deal after he gets out of prison.

We spoke with multiple major publishers who said ... despite being granted parole, and all the interest in recent O.J. projects -- like the "30 for 30" documentary and 'The People vs. O.J.' -- the book world will take a hard pass. We're told publishers fear a major backlash, or boycott, that could impact their roster of authors.

Another reason he's considered toxic is publishers don't see people rushing to put money in O.J.'s pocket, because the public still considers him guilty of double murder. As Keith Urbahn, president of publishing giant Javelin, put it ... "Consumers won't spend 20 bucks on a self-aggrandizing book about how he's turned his life around."

Last time O.J. landed a book deal was 2007's 'If I Did It' ... which cost mega-publisher Judith Regan her job at HarperCollins. Our sources say that fiasco is fresh in the minds of publishing execs.

Bottom line -- don't hold your breath for O.J.'s tell-all memoir. 

Beyonce & Jay-Z Neighbor Says Welcome to Bel-Air You're Our Wet Dream!!!

7/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay-Z might be the lucky charms their future next door neighbor dreamed about.

There's a couple that owns a Bel-Air house next door to the one where Bey and Jay are about to close escrow. As we reported, the Carters are paying around $100 mil for the mansion.

That's good news for the neighbors, who have tried in vain to sell their home since 2015. Problem is ... the lot is kinda screwy. The driveway is narrow and goes downhill, and when people pay millions they want more.  

But now prospective buyers will get more ... as in maybe the biggest power couple in the U.S., next to Barack and Michelle.  

As they say, it's all about location, location, location. Bel-Air is one of hoitiest of toitiest areas in L.A. and living next door to Bey and Jay puts the neighbors in the epicenter of celebrity power.

Ultimately, it's all about price, and when you compare what the Carters are paying to the very reasonable $18 million dollar price tag on the house next door ... well, the listing agents clearly think it's now a steal.

'Mob Wives' Big Ang Sister Fights for Her Honor Don't Take Down the Mural!!!

7/24/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The memory of "Mob Wives" star Big Ang lives on in mural form on the side of her sister's boutique, but it's in danger of being washed away ... TMZ has learned.

Big Ang's sister, Janine, tells us she got permission for the hand-drawn mural from the landlord of the Staten Island building last year ... shortly after Ang died. She says the tribute was well-received in the neighborhood, until a few weeks ago ... when her landlord said it had to go.

She says the landlord claimed people find it offensive, but she has no idea why and hasn't gotten more of an explanation. She says the landlord wants the mural removed before the new school year, and she'll be devastated if that happens.

She's started a petition for the community to show love for her sister and the mural.

Venus Williams' Mom On Crash: 'She Just Has to Live With It'

7/24/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Venus Williams' mother says the tennis superstar is still reeling from the car crash that left 1 man dead -- but says she's able to cope because she's a very strong person.

Oracene Price tells TMZ Sports ... Venus is "very much" upset and affected by the June 9 crash in Palm Beach Gardens, FL -- but her family, including Serena, is rallying around her.

When asked what advice she's given Venus on how to deal with the situation, Price says: "It's something that you kinda have to do internally yourself but you'll never forget it. But it'll always be there so you just have to live with it."

As we previously reported, Venus' car was T-boned by another vehicle in an intersection, killing a 78-year-old man. Venus has not been charged with a crime (and likely won't be) but cops are still investigating.

The victim's family has filed a civil suit against Venus -- but Oracene says her daughter isn't worried about it.

As for Serena, Oracene says she's SUPER excited about the pregnancy and can't wait to be a grandmother.

But don't expect the baby to keep Serena off the court too long -- Oracene says Serena is planning to return to pro tennis ASAP because "she likes to compete."

John Singleton R. Kelly's No Cosby Just Has Lots of Girlfriends

7/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Singleton doesn't see anything wrong, or illegal, about how R. Kelly's leading his personal life, because the women living with him are adults making adult decisions.

We got the famed director out in NYC and he made it clear ... he just doesn't see what all the controversy is about, and told us he thinks the Bill Cosby comparisons are totally unfair to Kelly.

We can always count on John to drop some knowledge -- like when he schooled us on Tupac.
