Tommy Lee Inducted into Mile High Club With Hot Girlfriend

8/19/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tommy Lee can vouch for American Airlines, because he definitely got something special in the air. 

The Motley Crue drummer and Brittany Furlan had one last hurrah as they left Nassau by slinking into the first class bathroom of an AA jet, and lingering for a long, long time ... passengers say at least 20 minutes.

The passengers were pissed off, but there was clearly no pissing in the lavatory ... just a little turbulence.

They tried to make a discreet exit, with Tommy walking out first and Brittany lingering inside for around 25 seconds before emerging with a s***-eating grin.

Here's what makes it even better. The flight to Miami took a grand total of 65 minutes.

Tupac Hummer Sold Again At Bargain Basement Price

8/19/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tupac Shakur's final ride -- a 1996 Hummer he bought a month before he was killed -- has found a new owner once again ... and the buyer scored a pretty heavy discount.

We broke the story ... the rapper's vehicle sold for a whopping $337,000 in May 2016 to an Ohio bidder, but got sent back to the auction block when the guy flaked.

RR Auction relisted the Hummer and it sold Friday for $206,531 ... $130k less than last time.

Now it's just a matter of waiting and seeing if the anonymous winning bidder pays up.

All eyez on him (or her).

Robert Horry Fight Injury Photos ... Bloody Gashes

8/19/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained injury photos from the man Robert Horry tried to fight at a youth basketball game ... which shows bloody damage to the man's neck. 

We broke the story ... Horry is under investigation for allegedly attacking the opposing coach at his 10-year-old son's youth basketball tournament at L.A. Live on August 5. 

The opposing coach tells TMZ Sports -- he was a big Horry fan BEFORE the tournament. But Robert was aggressive and out-of-line from the moment he got to the courts. 

The coach -- who doesn't want to be named -- says Horry was cussing and talking trash before and during the game and initiated the violent encounter that was captured on video. 

The coach says he was"terrified" of Horry and only shoved the 46-year-old to protect himself. 

Horry tells a different story ... claiming the coach struck first. 

Cops are currently investigating the incident. 

Samantha Hoopes I Don't Date Athletes Anymore ... Here's Why

EXCLUSIVE

Hear that noise? It's the sound of every athlete banging his head against the wall for not shooting his shot with Samantha Hoopes sooner ... 'cause the S.I. bikini model's steering clear of ballers for good.

We spoke with the smokin' hot 26-year-old about her decision to quit bangin' athletes ... and she says jocks are just too "messy" for her liking.

Hoopes has been spotted out with Russell Wilson in the past and publicly gushed about Blake Griffin ... but she clearly eyes guys in a different field now.

Sorry, fellas ... 

Green Beret Nate Boyer I Fought So Marshawn Can Sit But I Disagree With Protest

8/19/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nate Boyer -- the former Army Green Beret who played briefly with the Seahawks -- says he doesn't exactly agree with Marshawn Lynch's national anthem protest ... but he fought for his right to do it! 

Boyer's story is legendary ... he served 6 years with the U.S. military doing multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan before returning and walking on to the University of Texas football team. 

After college, he signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 -- and went through camp with Marshawn and Michael Bennett ... guys he really likes and respects. 

So, we figured he was the perfect guy to talk to about Marshawn and Bennett both sitting for the anthem during the NFL pre-season games. 

"They have every right to do what they're doing. I don't necessarily agree with it but it's their right and it's the right that I fought for."

He continued ... "They're not hurting anybody. They're not hitting women like some of these people in the league are doing."

Boyer -- who also consulted Colin Kaepernick about his controversial protest last season -- says what's more problematic to him is the state of the country.

"I think as a service member, it's more upsetting for me to come back from fighting for my country overseas to see how divided we are and how angry we are at each other as a country, I'm more hurt by that than somebody sitting down during the anthem."

B-52's Frontman Sues You Ruined My Christmas Album

8/19/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

B-52's frontman, Fred Schneider, and his side project, The Superions, are suing their record label, claiming it failed to live up to any of the holly jolly obligations of their Xmas album.

According to legal docs, the synth rock trio -- made up of Schneider, Noah Brodie and Dan Marshall -- dropped "Destination ... Christmas!" in 2010, stocked with nontraditional yuletide gems like "Fruitcake" and "Christmas Conga (Jungle Bells)" that led it to debut at #13 on the Billboard Comedy Album Chart.

As part of their 6-year contract, The Superions claim the band was responsible for covering recording costs while Fanatic Records agreed to handle album cover costs, as well as manufacturing and promoting the LP. The band also claims the label was responsible for delivering biannual sale reports and royalties -- which Schneider and his bandmates said it failed to do.

When the contract expired in September 2016, the band says Fanatic failed to turn over the remaining physical copies of the album.

They're suing for a ton of cash. 

A rep for Fanatic tells us ... "It's no fun being sued by one of your musical heroes, especially over a Christmas album, but we look forward to the opportunity to defend ourselves against accusations that are wholly false."

Our Dodgers spies tell us the two were even seen getting kissy and cuddly after the Dodgers beat the White Sox earlier this week. 

Kid's havin' a season, huh?!

Producer Joel Silver Sued Over Personal Assistant's Cocaine Drowning At Jennifer Aniston's Honeymoon Celebration

8/18/2017 5:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Famed producer Joel Silver is being sued over a drowning at Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's honeymoon celebration.

The family of Carmel Musgrove, Silver's personal assistant, claim in the lawsuit, Silver flew Carmel and others to the Four Seasons Hotel in Bora Bora in August, 2015, to celebrate the marriage of Jen and Justin.

The suit alleges Carmel and a Martin Herold, Silver's personal chef, partied on August 19 and consumed heavy amounts of alcohol along with cocaine and weed. Carmel went missing and her nude body was later discovered floating in a lagoon 500 yards from her bungalow.

According to the lawsuit, the cause of death was alcohol, cocaine, fatigue from overwork, heat stroke and a midnight swim in choppy waters.

Carmel's family claims Silver or one of his people supplied Carmel with cocaine and booze, and overworked her.

We reached out to Silver ... so far, no word back.

Richard Simmons 5 Reasons I'm Not Transgender

8/18/2017 3:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Richard Simmons broke out a list of reasons explaining why he's not transgender ... not that there's anything wrong with that.

Simmons filed new legal docs in his defamation suit against the National Enquirer listing the reasons why the tabloid got it wrong when it reported he was transitioning into a woman. Here are the reasons:

-- I am male
-- I am not transgender
-- I have never sought nor obtained any medical treatment or procedure designed to transition from male to female
-- I have never had breast implant surgery
-- I never consulted with any medical professional regarding sex reassignment surgery

As we reported ... Simmons sued the Enquirer's parent company -- American Media -- but the outlet fought back, saying that calling someone transgender is not an insult.

Simmons addresses that as well in the new docs, saying, "I fully support transgender individuals and their struggle to achieve acceptance and equality. Nonetheless, the false and fabricated claims that I was contemplating 'castration' and have had a 'boob job' have caused me extreme embarrassment."

We've reached out to American Media, so far no word back.

FYI, Bowling Green costs $20,000 per year for an Ohio resident.

Suder connected -- and his teammates went wild!! 

We asked Suder and Coach Jinks what they were thinking right before and during the kick -- the whole thing is pretty awesome. 

Congrats to Suder -- and to the entire BG program. Dope moment.
