Damon Dash

Judge Sides With Ex-Wife

... You've Got A Weed Problem

10/8/2015 5:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-dash-roy-tmz-getty-01Damon Dash was shut down in court Thursday during a custody hearing for his two kids, and a judge made it very clear ... Damon hurt his chances by smoking too much pot. 

Dash wanted an LA judge to drop the monitored visits he currently has with seven-year-old Tallulah for regular visitation and overnight stays. Dash's ex-wife Rachel Roy claims he smokes too much weed around their kids ... and during one visit they ate Damon's pot-laced cake and rice krispies.

In the end, the judge agreed with Rachel. He upheld the monitored visits and ordered Damon stay away from the green stuff for 24 hours before each visit.

We're told Damon was extremely upset and went off on the judge and was almost dragged out of the court. Big difference from 24 hours ago, when he was still optimistic about his chances. 

Ronda Rousey

I Could Forgive Bieber

... But There's a Catch

10/8/2015 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Call her Ronda the Merciful -- 'cause the UFC superstar says she's down to let Justin Bieber off the hook for dissing her sister at Cannes ... as long as she gets permission from one key person. 

Rousey arrived back in L.A. to get back to training for her big fight against Holly Holm -- when we asked about the 2014 incident when Bieber blew off her 16-year-old sister who asked for a picture at a media event. 

"If my little sister forgave him, I could," Ronda said. 

Rousey has previously said her sister was so hurt by the incident, she STOPPED BEING A BELIEBER!

So, how can Bieber get Rousey's sister to forgive him? Maybe start with a picture ... 

Ben Carson

Dumb Reporters Make Me Chuckle

... Not School Shootings

10/8/2015 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Ben Carson says his puzzling laughter after saying he would have bum rushed the Oregon community college shooter ... had nothing to do with nerves or him being insensitive to victims.

Carson was in NYC outside the FOX News building -- where it originally went down on FOX & Friends -- and we asked what was really behind his chuckling. Remember, he did it again ... when we raised the shooting topic with him later that day.

Check it out, Carson tells us the blame lies with reporters and their questions, not himself. We went back and checked -- doesn't seem like a funny question, but everyone hears things differently.

Also, one guess what happened as BC walked away from our photog today. We'll try not to take it personally.

Do I Look Beat Up?

10/8/2015 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports just shot the first video of Derek Fisher out in public since his big fight with Matt Barnes over the weekend -- but take a close look ... he doesn't appear to look any worse for wear. 

Fisher and the NY Knicks just arrived in Washington D.C. to play the Washington Wizards Friday night. 

We asked Fish if he thought there was any chance he could salvage his relationship with Barnes -- but to no one's surprise, he didn't exactly wanna talk about it.

President Obama

Come Party with Jamie Foxx and Me

... For $10,000/Ticket!

10/8/2015 8:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


President Obama could be blaming it on the a-a-a-a-alcohol this weekend -- 'cause he's gonna be partying with Jamie Foxx at a ritzy celebrity event ... TMZ has learned.

The DNC is throwing one of those big ticket fundraisers on Saturday in Pacific Palisades where the Prez will be pressing the flesh and working the room. The original invitation went out saying, "Musical guest TBD" ... but our DNC sources tell us Foxx will be the entertainment.

If you wanna roll VIP -- as in get a photo with Obama and prime seating for the concert -- it'll cost you $10,000! You can get in the door though for a mere $1,000 ... no pic included.

The exact location is only listed as a private home, until you fork over the dough for a ticket.

Let's hope Jamie's turn as POTUS in "White House Down" doesn't come up in conversation. For Jamie's sake. 


John Stamos

D.A. to Charge Actor with DUI

Under the Influence of GHB

10/8/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007_john_stamos_tmzJohn Stamos will be charged with driving under the influence of GHB, the so-called date rape drug, TMZ has learned, but sources close to the actor say he was using the drug as a fitness supplement. 

Stamos was arrested in June when cops spotted him driving erratically in Beverly Hills. Authorities say Stamos was so messed up they took him to the hospital. We're told testing revealed there was GHB in his system, along with another non-narcotic drug. 

Our Stamos sources say the actor was taking the drug to "lean out body mass" as he prepared for his new TV show. The drug is used by bodybuilders for lean muscle, and for a level of sleep which helps muscles recover.

We're told the criminal case will be filed soon and the charging documents will outline the drugs.

Stamos went to rehab almost immediately after his arrest and completed his 30-day live-in treatment successfully.


French Montana

Khloe's Ass is The Best Endorsement for Nike 3D

10/8/2015 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

French Montana has an interesting theory ... this pic she posted on her website,, could be a more powerful sales pitch for Nike than the company's potential new 3D printer.

We got French leaving Nice Guy in West Hollywood Wednesday when we asked whether Khloe Kardashian would be effective in pushing a proposed product, which would allow consumers to use a 3D printer to make shoes.

There's a lot of subtext ... French says his affection for his former GF is strong. But he's also embracing a product which is now the archrival of Adidas, the company that just hired new boyfriend James Harden as its pitchman. 

Let's get real ... who notices the shoes? 



Daniel Craig

Will Be Bond for Life!!

If Christoph Gets His Way

10/8/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Craig can make all the suicide threats he wants, but as long as he's drawing breath ... he will be playing 007 -- at least according to his "Spectre" co-star Christoph Waltz

Craig recently said he'd slash his wrists before he plays James Bond again -- which, of course, has fueled talk of a possible black Bond in the future. But no offense to the likes of Idris Elba ... "Spectre" baddie Christoph thinks Craig is just blowing smoke.  

As he left No Name Bar in Hollywood Wednesday night -- C-dub was pretty definitive about who the next Bond will be. Gotta figure the guy has SOME kinda inside info. No?

NFL's Desmond Clark

Video of High School Tirade

... Over Alleged Racism

10/8/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained explosive video of ex-NFL tight end Desmond Clark GOING BALLISTIC at officials at a Chicago area high school after his son was allegedly mistreated because he's black. 

According to police, it all went down on August 29th at Vernon Hills High ... where Desmond's 17-year-old son was blocked from participating in a school lip sync event because of a previous code of conduct violation. 

Desmond's son claims an administrator demeaned him in front of other students -- calling him a "criminal" -- so he called his parents who came rushing to the school. 

You can see in the video ... Desmond's wife Maria got so HEATED, Desmond had to literally pick her up and remove her from the person she was screaming at. 

Desmond -- who played for the Bears from 2003 to 2010 -- comes back into the room and begins to yell. Cops say he was calling out school officials ... claiming his son had been the victim of racism for years and his family was sick of it. 

Several people in the room gave Desmond an ovation at the end of his rant. 

Eventually, cops arrived to the scene and spoke with the Clarks for more than an hour. They left that day without incident ... but Desmond and his wife were hit with criminal charges in the following days. 

Both Desmond and his wife were charged with disorderly conduct -- Maria was also hit with an assault charge. They were arrested on September 11th and were later released. 

They have since pled not guilty and are due back in court later this month. 

Desmond has since been banned from school grounds -- his lawyer says, "They're afraid of him because he's a big black man."

We reached out to the school for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Oregon School Shooting

Celebs Demand Training for Kids

10/8/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Ben Carson was NOT that far off with his advice on taking down mass shooters ... this according to celebrity security experts who are suddenly flooded with calls to train famous children for that very scenario.

Logan Clarke and Allen Cardoza run an executive level protection firm in Hollywood, and tell us they've had requests from 5 celeb parents and 2 schools (private and public) -- all looking for training for high school and college students.

While they can't reveal their clients' names, they did tell us what they generally recommend: When dealing with a crazed guman you only have 2 choices ... fight or die.

Yes, that sounds a lot like Carson's advice, for which he's caught tons of heat. Clarke and Cardoza have some tips for the good doc too.
