EXCLUSIVE

French Montana was not under the influence of alcohol when he was photographed drinking Ciroc from the bottle while cruising on one of Diddy's Sea-Doos ... so claim people close to the rapper.

As we previously reported ... French was in Miami Beach Saturday, catching some rays and drinking vodka. It's not illegal in Florida to drink while boating, but it IS illegal to drink to the point that the driver is impaired.

Although our French sources insist he "was not f***** up," Khloe posted a pic around the same time showing her crew -- including French -- on Diddy's roof with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!! #StepIntoTheCircle."

Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao

Broker Selling Ringside Seats

... For $87,000 Each!!

3/30/2015 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0330-floyd-manny-MGM-Money-fun-art-TMZ-01A high-end NY-based "hospitality service" says it has the very first authentic ringside seats to the Mayweather vs.Pacquiao fight ... and they could be yours for $87,500-a-pop!!! 

TMZ Sports spoke with Oren Partner -- the head of Precision Concierge New York (PCNY) -- who tells us he has 39 tickets to the fight ... ranging from upper level to ringside seats. 

The prime seats -- $87,500 for 6th row ringside ... but he only has two at the moment. 

So, how did he get the seats since tickets have NOT gone on sale to the general public? Oren says he knows some very powerful people connected to the fight. 

We called reps for the MGM Grand, Top Rank (Pacquiao's promoters) and TMT (Mayweather's people) who all told us the same thing -- it's possible the tickets are legit, but they didn't come from them. 

As far as PCNY's legitimacy goes ... they've been registered as a legit business in New York since 2011 ... and we've spoken with several entertainment industry people who vouched for 'em. 

That being said, here are some of the other prices: 

(2) Lower 13 Row G @ $42,500 each (center ring)
(2) Lower 13 Row M @ $36,500 each (center ring)
(2-4) Lower 15 Row M @ $23,500 each (just off center ring)
(2-5) Lower 15 Row T @ $16,000 each (just off center ring)
(2-4) Lower 14 Row W @ $14,650 each (just off row R @ $12,500 each (corner)
(2-4) Lower 19 Row X @ $10,100 each (corner ring)
(2-4) Upper 209 Row L @ $7,850 each (corner to ringside)
(2-4) Lower 5 Row R @ $12,500 each (corner)
(2-4) Lower 19 Row X @ $10,100 each (corner ring)
(2-4) Upper 209 Row L @ $7,850 each (corner to ringside)

Hope you saved up.

Michael Jordan's Ex-Teammate

I WAS BETTER THAN JORDAN

... In Ping Pong & Pool

3/30/2015 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jordan's greatness apparently doesn't extend to frat-house pastimes ... cause his ex-teammate Ron Harper tells TMZ Sports he DOMINATED his airness ... at ping pong & pool.

Harper was MJ's teammate on the Bulls from '95 to '98 when Jordan was an absolute basketball GOD ...  and really could do nothing wrong on the court.

So when we got Harper leaving 1Oak in L.A. recently we had to ask the five-time NBA champ ... have you ever beaten Jordan in anything?

Check out the clip -- Harper answers our question with an emphatic HELL YEAH, then goes on to tell us how he took his fair share of pong and billiard contests off Jordan.

FYI -- We've seen Jordan's beer pong skills ... Ron may have a point.

Justin Bieber

Not My Tempo ...

Treats Sushi House To Drum Seshi

3/30/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber loves fish sticks ... to keep the beat ... Sunday night JB and his crew knocked out some off the cuff table jams at a Miami sushi spot using nothing but chop sticks and table tops.

Our sushi sources tell TMZ ... Biebs and about 22 of his closest buddies chased their sashimi down with percussion instead of saki (though it sounds like they had that too) and treated the whole joint at Tokyo Blue to a freestyle jam sesh.

Give it a listen ... JB drops the rhymes while the rest assisted with anything they could grab.

It's pretty cool -- like a tabletop "Stomp" -- but after 2 songs we're told Biebs felt bad, apologized to the other patrons, and posed for pics. We're told he even dropped a $500 tip on the $1,000 tab.

Still ... this won't make his next album.

Burt Jenner

Jamie Foxx's Bruce Jokes

Desperate Attempt to Stay Relevant

3/30/2015 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Burt Jenner doesn't have a problem with Jamie Foxx mocking his dad, because in Burt's mind Jamie's career is on the way down and he's just trying to imitate Kevin Hart to stay relevant.

Bruce Jenner's oldest son arrived at LAX Monday, and our photog asked about Jamie's barb at the iHeart Radio Music Awards Sunday night. Jamie said Bruce could sing a male/female duet by himself, and then added he was just busting Bruce's balls while he still had them.

Burt doesn't have a problem with the comment. But he definitely has a problem with Kevin Hart making jokes about his sisters. Kevin made a comment at the Bieber roast that Kendall was hooking up with the Biebs, as Kendall sat in the audience looking uncomfortable.

Listen to Burt ... that clearly pissed him off.

BTW, we're told all 3 of Bruce's boys have no problem with comedians making jokes about their dad's impending sex change. They say the LGBT community needs to chill ... it's just comedy.

Rob Kardashian DrivingRob Kardashian -- who hasn't been seen for months -- emerged from his Calabasas home this weekend to run a few errands with friends.

It's hard to get a good look, but what you see is clear ... he looks about the same. 

Rob famously went into seclusion before Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West, partially due to self-image problems over his weight.

Having barely been seen or heard since, Rob did make a cameo on social media recently ... to trash his sister Kim.

Dog the Bounty Hunter

In Dogfight Over Fugitive's Arrest

3/30/2015 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0330-dog-bounty-tmz-01Dog the Bounty Hunter is so into dogs, he allegedly tried to buy one off a fugitive ... while his cohorts were kicking in the guy's front door to haul his ass off to jail ... but Dog's lawyer says the fugitive is lying about him wanting to buying the pooch.

Dog's latest catch, James Hawkins tells TMZ ... he was arrested earlier this month at his Texas home, and as he was cuffed he claims Dog immediately locked eyes with his great dane -- and whipped out $1,000 cash to take it away.

Hawkins was pissed, and told Dog to lay off Duke -- a 7-year-old, 200 lb. pooch. He says Duke doesn't need to be rescued by DBH or anyone else.

Dog's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ his client NEVER tried to buy Duke ... never offered him a cent for the animal.  

Hawkins -- who was wanted for failing to pay bond on a previous arrest -- is considering suing Dog for trespassing ... and forcing him to sign release papers for the reality show. 

Meanwhile, Hawkins' fam didn't seem offended -- they all posed for pics with Beth Chapman while Dog was busting dear ole dad.

Don't know what to say about this. Brett Ratner making out with a chick on the same yacht where he was nuzzling Mariah Carey.

EXCLUSIVE

0330-the-game-tmz-01Well, that didn't take long -- one week after The Game got Mike Tyson tatted on his hand ... he allegedly decked someone so hard during a basketball game ... police were called to the scene.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Game was playing in a Pro-Am game Sunday at Hollywood High School when he got into a heated argument with another player. We're told the player says Game threatened to kill him, punched him in the face and took off. 

Officers responded and the alleged victim filed a report. Police are investigating the incident as a battery. 

We've reached out to Game ... no word back. Ditto for Tyson.

Terrence Howard's Ex-Wife

Move Over, Cookie ...

I'm Taking My Cut of the 'Empire'

3/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard Ex Wife Empire SalarySomeone else is digging into Lucious Lyon's pockets -- Terrence Howard's real life ex-wife is demanding a chunk of his "Empire" salary.

Michelle Howard is already supposed to get $5,800 per month from Terrence -- but according to new docs ... she stands to benefit greatly from his astronomical success on the FOX show, and here's why.

The deal is Michelle gets 21% of anything Terrence made over $62,500 in the first 3 months of this year. As we previously reported ... Michelle says Terrence pulls in $125k per episode -- and sources tell us 3 episodes were shot this year.

We did the math, and he needs to cut her a check for about $65k. That's just from his "Empire" money. Remember, Terrence has another show -- "Wayward Pines" -- debuting on FOX this year ... so she'll get some chunk of that.

Bottom line -- they had a nasty divorce, but it's safe to say Michelle's now rooting for Terrence.

Bisexual NFL Player

'Michael Sam Doesn't Speak for All of Us'

3/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bisexual NFL Player Michael SamTMZ Sports just spoke with a bisexual NFL player who's upset with Michael Sam -- telling us he was OFFENDED when Sam said other gay men in the league are less courageous because they don't want to come out.

The player -- who didn't want to be identified by name -- has played in the league for several seasons and says he's open about his sexuality with close friends. 

But when the player read Sam's recent comments about gay men in the league -- he was offended. 

Specifically, the player was upset when Sam said ... "I respect the players that did reach out to me and had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL."

The player's response -- "As a bisexual man, I just feel like Michael Sam does not speak for all gay men."

"He has his own opinion ... but DON'T say that we don't have the courage to come out. It's totally wrong. Just speak for yourself. No one else." 

"It's no one's business what my sexuality is. You should like me for me ... not for who I choose to be with."

The player continued ... "I feel the NFL isn't ready for people to be open about it. Or the General Managers for that matter." 

Despite those opinions, the player says he believes Sam DID get a fair shot to make a team -- "I just don't think he performed well."

Snoop has a doppelganger of sorts ... our photog Joe, who dare we say sounds exactly like Mr. Dogg.

Snoop was leaving Jimmy Kimmel's show when Joe fulfilled his lifelong dream ... to sing "Nuthin' But A G Thang" in front of the rap legend.

We knew Joe was good, but not this good ... and Snoop was duly impressed.
