Taryn Manning I'm Grateful I Hit Rock Bottom And I'm Getting Help

10/24/2016 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1023-taryn-manning-tmz-02Taryn Manning wants you to know ... she's struggling with her sobriety, but she's getting help.

Taryn says she's aware a media outlet is doing a story on her, so before it comes out she wants to make it clear she's taking steps to achieve and maintain sobriety.  

The "Orange Is the New Black" star says, "I am truly grateful for what some may call hitting rock bottom ... Some days it sucks and some days it sucks worse. I am not ashamed of this obstacle because I have accepted that it is okay to not be okay."

Taryn says she can't attend rehab because of her schedule, but she has a sober companion, therapists, friends and "other safe outlets" for support.

She says she loves 'OITNB' and the cast and crew, adding, "I've never felt more accepted, forgiven, and supported than during this period of my life. This is not easy."

Gilbert Arenas My $111 Mil NBA Contract Is Up ... I Can't Afford Private School

10/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-gilbert-arenas-tmzGilbert Arenas' infamous $111 MILLION contract with the Washington Wizards is finally about to expire ... and Gilbert says he will be so poor, he won't be able to afford private school for his kids. 

Gilbert signed the 6-year guaranteed contract back in 2008 -- but according to new court filings in his family law case, obtained by TMZ Sports, Arenas will get his last installment on October 31st (the contract was paid out over 8 years).

It was good while it lasted ... and Gilbert knew it when he spoke to our photog about the contract in 2013.

The problem, Arenas says ... is now that he's no longer getting NBA checks, he'll only earn $169,895 per year in investment income ... not enough to live the BALLER lifestyle he's used to. 

So, Arenas says he has to make some serious cuts -- and one of the items on the chopping block is the private school where he sends his kids ... which runs $91,600 per year. 

"I anticipate that the children will need to transfer to public schools in 2017 and beyond."

For the record, Arenas reportedly made more than $160 MILLION during his NBA career ... not including tens of millions in endorsements.

10/24/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-getty-tmz-02Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian still have separate living arrangements -- and that won't change before their baby arrives -- but they've got a co-parenting plan in place ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Chyna's house is going to be home base when the baby girl is born next month, but Rob's not dodging diaper duty. We're told he and Chyna are getting along well right now, and he's been staying at her house for a few weeks.

The plan is to share parental duties at Chyna's nest, but Rob isn't selling his Calabasas home just yet. Fact is ... their relationship is volatile and when things go south, Rob retreats to his place, we're told.

But for now the plan is to be one happy family under one roof, and ultimately find a new house. Rob had been looking, but didn't find anything.

We're told they'll start looking together after the the baby's born and things settle down.

10/24/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods might as well hang it up .... 'cause his days of being a dominant golfer are OVER ... so says PGA legend Greg Norman.

We got the two-time British Open champ out in NYC and put it to him plain ... asking if Tiger Woods, who hasn't been the same since ... you know ... can ever get his mojo back and be the #1 guy again.

The short answer -- nope. And Norman ain't sugarcoating it.

BTW -- We also asked Norman (who was looking especially pimped out, we should say) to name the best celebrity golfer he ever hit the links with was ... here's a hint ... she's fine as hell.

1018-jeff-timmons-channing-tatum-getty-01Jeff Timmons will challenge Channing Tatum for the title ... hottest male strippers in Sin City.

We're told Jeff locked down a deal to relaunch "Men of the Strip" in March ... which will become a TV show on a new network that encourages him to push the boundaries of stripping.

You'll recall ... "Men of the Strip" originally ran as a docusoap for E! back in 2014.

Jeff's place of residency will be the Stratosphere Hotel in Vegas, which is just up the road from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino ... where Channing's premiering "Magic Mike Live" at the very same time.

Janis Joplin $100k Good Enough For 'Bobby McGee' Guitar

10/24/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_Janis-Joplin_guitar_Heritage-AuctionsThe six string Janis Joplin used to record her signature song is expected to go for six figures on the auction block.

It's a 1969 Gibson Hummingbird acoustic and Janis played it while recording "Me and Bobby McGee." After Janis died in 1970, it was given to her old bandmate, Sam Andrew. Andrew died last year, and now his wife is auctioning it off through Heritage Auctions.

Heritage says the guitar is a big deal because Janis memorabilia is very hard to come by ... hence the $100,000 price tag, at least.

Don't worry ... for that kinda money you get some extras ... like the doily Janis used to clean the guitar. Doilies, nothing screams rock 'n' roll like legendary doilies.

The auction runs through November 12.

Khloe and Lamar Divorce Settlement a Done Deal

10/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-02Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have officially signed off on their divorce, and all that's left is a judge's John Hancock ... TMZ has learned.

Khloe and Lamar have reached a property settlement and each has now signed legal docs that were filed Friday.  

It's been an on-again/off-again process. TMZ broke the story, Khloe first filed for divorce in December 2013, but the divorce stagnated for almost 2 years while Khloe went back and forth, trying at times to save their relationship and save Lamar.

After Lamar ODd and almost died a year ago, Khloe dropped the divorce, but refiled this year after it became apparent to her Lamar would not swear off drugs and alcohol.  

Under California law, she has to wait 6 months from the time of filing to get a sign off from the judge, which won't happen until December.

But unless something radical happens, they will be single before the end of the year.


Russell Crowe & Azealia Banks Cops Hit Wall with Surveillance Video

10/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-azaelia-banks-russell-crowe-tmzAzealia Banks and Russell Crowe are back to square one -- he said, she said -- because we've learned the surveillance cameras at the Bev Hills Hotel missed the entire confrontation.

Law enforcement sources tell us they've combed through security footage from the hotel, where Azealia claims Russell choked her, called her the n-word and spit on her in the hallway. She told us the video would show him spitting and maybe more.

There are lots of cameras at the hotel capturing what happens in public areas, but not where the confrontation went down.

Azealia filed a battery report against Russell and she actually got an assist from RZA, who was one of the guests in the hotel suite where the party went down. Although he says Azealia was drunk and out of control, he said on "TMZ Live" Russell did indeed spit at her.

The reality is ... Russell will not get in trouble for 2 reasons. First, Azealia doesn't want to press charges against him, and second, the eyewitnesses in the room say she instigated the whole thing by threatening to cut people with glass, and Russell was just trying to restrain her.

10/23/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_ryan-lochte-tmzRyan Lochte's lawyers got a double whammy in Brazil -- a judge denied their request to have HIS criminal case dismissed ... then transferred the case to a higher court. 

A rep for the Court of Justice tells TMZ ... a Rio judge kicked Ryan's false police report case up to the public Ministry of Justice, which will now begin figuring out how hefty of a fine to drop on Lochte.

A court rep tells us the Ministry will most likely hand down a fine in excess of the $11k fine Lochte's teammate, Jimmy Feigen, paid to set things right with prosecutors. The decision is expected as early as next week.
