Sinead O'Connor I Was Wrong to Claim Arsenio Gave Prince Drugs

2/22/2017 5:39 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222_arsenio-hall_sinead_oconnor_tmz-2Sinead O'Connor is issuing a full mea culpa for accusing Arsenio Hall of providing drugs to Prince, and saving her ass from a $5 million lawsuit in the process ... TMZ has learned.

Arsenio and Sinead tell TMZ, in a joint statement, "Sinead has retracted and apologized for statements she made about Arsenio last year, which prompted his defamation lawsuit against her."

TMZ broke the story ... Arsenio sued the crap out of the singer after she went on a rant -- weeks after Prince's death -- and accused him of fueling Prince's drug habit.

Sinead tells us, "I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince's drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince's death. I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally."

Arsenio isn't spiking the football in victory -- his reps say he'll file to dismiss the lawsuit, now that Sinead's admitting she was wrong.

'This Is Us' Star I'm Dead, But Don't Write Me Off!

2/22/2017 2:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The "This Is Us" episode that pissed off so many fans is not necessarily the end for the guy who played -- or plays -- Randall's biological dad, William.

Ron Cephas Jones gave us his take on why fans got so emotional about Tuesday night's episode, where ... SPOILER ALERT ... William dies. Viewers have said it was just too gut-wrenching, even though it was telegraphed for weeks that Ron's terminally ill character was nearing the end.

But check out why Ron's not that depressed about William's passing. The way he sees it, there's nothing fatal about death on the hit show.

EXCLUSIVE

Andy Cohen has a despairing view of our world ... especially after the vandalism at a Jewish cemetery.

Andy was at LAX Wednesday and expressed his disgust at the latest anti-Semitic act, but took solace in the fact a Muslim group stepped up to repair the damage at the gravesites in St. Louis.

0222_Jewish-cemetary-vandalized-in-Missouri_getty-2The incident hit close to home for Cohen -- several of his relatives, including his great great grandparents, are buried there.

Sean Kingston Beatdown Migos Skates, Shooter Booked

2/22/2017 12:30 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-moises-johnson-tmz-las-vegas-police-dept-5Sean Kingston's friend has just been arrested and booked for firing a shot during an altercation Tuesday night in Las Vegas ... and Migos is in the clear ... even though they apparently beat down Sean.

28-year-old Moises Johnson has been booked with discharging a firearm by firing a shot in the air. He was also booked on 3 felony counts for pointing the gun at 3 people. And he was booked on felony possession of a firearm without a permit.

As we reported, our sources say Sean was kicked and stomped on repeatedly by members of Migos. It's unclear what started Tuesday's fight at the Sands Expo & Convention Center.

Sean has not filed a police report against Migos and that clearly won't happen, because he said on social media Wednesday no one jumped him.

2/22/2017 10:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If we told you Kevin Durant got straight balled up by "Chappelle's Show" star Donnell Rawlings there's no way you'd believe us right? We didn't think so ...

Turns out it TOTALLY happened ... and Donnell not only told the tale to TMZ Sports when we got him out at the Hollywood Improv Tuesday night -- he also provided VIDEO EVIDENCE!

It went down at a charity game in DC a few years back when Rawlings stole the ball from KD, then pushed the rock hard up the court to drain a smooth three.

Almost as dope as the moment itself? Donnell says he ran into Durant during All-Star Weekend in New Orleans and brought it up to him, and KD totally remembered.

Check it out below ... sorry we ever doubted you, Donnell.

2/22/2017 9:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tessa Thompson's got a message for anyone cancelling their Netflix membership over a new series that eyes racial tension through various lenses -- stop being silly.

Tessa -- who starred in the "Dear White People" movie -- was out at LAX Tuesday when she defended the upcoming show based on the popular indie film. Tessa's adamant people 86ing their membership is EXACTLY why the new series -- a satirical take on race -- is needed more than ever.

Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. My Baby Won't Get My Name ... No Dale The 3rd

2/22/2017 6:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The last Earnhardt with the name Dale may have already rolled off the assembly line ... 'cause Dale Jr. tells TMZ Sports he will NOT name his future kid Dale Earnhardt III. 

The NASCAR superstar was out in NYC with his brand new wife, Amy Reimann, when we asked if they've talked about kids in their future. 

The good news ... Dale says they've already picked out a name but it won't be D3. 

Also ... does that mean they're closer to a kid than previously thought???

Happy whale watching faces!

Andi Dorfman I'm Team Nick But ... I'm Done With 'Bachelor'

2/22/2017 7:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former 'Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman is done with reality TV dating, although she sure seems invested in Nick Viall's love life.

Viall and Andi have history ... he was a finalist when she was the 'Bachelorette.' Maybe she's having buyer's remorse by picking Josh Murray -- that relationship went down in flames -- because she seems to have a soft spot for the runner-up.

Love me, Tinder. 

Ezekiel Elliott Police Incident Best Friend Arrested for Loaded Gun at Bar

2/22/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-ezekiel-elliott-alvarez-GETTY-01We now know why Ezekiel Elliott was in the middle of a police incident at an Ohio bar over the weekend ... his "best friend" was getting arrested for a bringing a loaded gun to the place.

TMZ Sports posted video of Ezekiel speaking with cops in front of the Park Street Patio Bar on Friday night ... and while he was NOT detained, arrested or accused of any wrongdoing -- it's clear he was very interested in the investigation. 

Now, we know the person who was arrested that night is Alvarez Jackson ... who's been described as Zeke's "best friend" in a 2015 Sports Illustrated article. He's also a regular on EE's Instagram feed. 

According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Jackson was being patted down by security on his way into the bar when they found a loaded Glock 9mm handgun inside of a purse-like bag around his neck. 

Security took the gun -- but Alvarez allegedly ran upstairs into the bar. Officials say he was tracked down and arrested. 

0222-alvarez-jackson-tmz-sports-02

Law enforcement sources tell us Alvarez tried to name-drop Ezekiel during the incident -- claiming he's the NFL star's "brother."

We previously spoke with Ezekiel's rep who says the Cowboys RB did provide information to police but was NEVER accused of any wrongdoing. 

Jackson has been charged with felony illegal gun possession in a liquor establishment and faces up to 5 years in prison. He's due in court later Wednesday.

Sean Kingston Beaten By Migos Shot Fired

2/21/2017 8:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-sean-kingston-3CSean Kingston was beaten up badly Tuesday and people on scene say Migos was the culprit ... but the story is bizarre and the group is not wanted by cops, at least not yet.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down late afternoon at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Vegas. We're told Kingston and the guys from Migos got into it over an argument involving Soulja Boy and the 3 members of Migos beat Sean badly, allegedly kicking him and stomping on his head.

Law enforcement tells us someone from Sean's camp pulled out a gun and fired once, but didn't hit anyone. That person was detained by security and turned over to the Vegas PD.

By the time cops arrived both Sean and Migos had left. A short time later Sean was pulled over for a traffic stop and became "semi-cooperative," though he did not name names.

We're told police want to speak with Migos, but they are quick to add members of the group are not "wanted" by cops.
