Arnold Schwarzenegger

Dragging Feet in Divorce with Maria

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

1009_ARNOLD-SCHWARZENEGGER_maria-shriver_TMZArnold Schwarzenegger is dragging his feet in his divorce with Maria Shriver, sources close to the couple tell TMZ, and the question is 'why?'.

Maria filed for divorce in July 2011 -- more than 4 YEARS ago. We're told the financial settlement was worked out a long time ago, and all that remains is a sign off. As we reported, there is no prenup, so they're splitting up roughly $400 million.

Our sources say there are no remaining issues, except a simple sign off, but that hasn't happened. As one source put it, "Whenever Maria says she wants to move on with her life, Arnold drags his feet."

Another source says it's not like either needs the divorce for financial reason ... they both have access to more than enough to pay the rent.  

The divorce is there for the taking, if Arnold just puts pen to paper.

Hillary Clinton

I Got the Porn Vote

in the Big D

10/10/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-hilary-clinton-gavin-waters-instagramHillary Clinton pressed the flesh of a guy who made a living flaunting his ... a bisexual porn star.

Clinton was in Texas recently for a fundraising breakfast when she mugged with Gavin Waters ... a retired porn star famous for his roles in "Splittin' Wood" and "Drill My Hole 2."

Waters dropped $1,000 to attend in large part because of her stand on sexual equality.

1009-hillary-clinton-pornstar-photo-sub-lucasenterntainment-4Gavin -- who also did straight porn -- has been retired from the biz for a few years and now works as a bartender at one of Dallas' biggest gay bars, The Tin Room. 

It's no big deal ... just a fun photo. Porn pics are cool ... just ask Bill


Shania Twain

Nothing Impresses Me Much

... On Tour

10/10/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923-shania-twain-getty-01Country queen Shania Twain gets only the royal treatment on tour ... and it's because she's got a VERY specific list of demands.

We got a hold of Shania's hotel rider and it's one of the more ridiculous ones we've ever seen ... kicking it off with a request for 7 humidifiers.

On room service ... she's ovo-lacto vegetarian -- we looked it up, no meat, fish, or poultry -- and must have AT LEAST 6 options for lunch and dinner at a dial's touch ... should she decide to order.

On flowers ... 3 bouquets of ONLY white or cream roses in the living room, bedroom and master bathroom of her suite. Lilies are NOT acceptable, nor fillers like baby's breath. 

On candles ... MINIMUM of one in each room of her suite, naturally scented soy, vegetable or beeswax in citrus, lavender or grapefruit scents.

And Shania makes sure all her diva demands are met with a personal "hotel advance," an assistant who arrives 24 hours ahead of Shania to make sure everything is perfect.

Did we mention Shania wants a late check out?

NFL's Greg Hardy

Fires Back at Haters In Rap Video

... With Gunfire & Strippers

10/10/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Embattled NFL star Greg Hardy -- the guy who was suspended for allegedly beating up his girlfriend -- is bragging that he'll never get "played" by a woman ever again. 

And he's making his point with the use of a stripper, gunfire sound effects and marijuana imagery in a rap video obtained by TMZ Sports

We've learned ... the Dallas Cowboys defensive end made the video for "I'm Just Me" in late 2014 -- after he was convicted of beating up his GF, throwing her on a bed covered in assault rifles and threatening to kill her. 

Hardy appealed the case -- and his conviction was overturned in 2015 after the alleged victim refused to testify against him in court. 

But during his time in NFL purgatory (he missed most of the 2014 season) Hardy hooked up with rapper Ja Alan to make a video in which Hardy declares to his critics, "What you see is what you get. I'm just me, I'm just real, and that's what I do."

Ja confirms the video was made in late 2014.

Right before Hardy spits his featured verse, a chorus of gunfire rings out. He then raps about women -- saying, "It'll be a cold day in hell before your girl tries to play me."

Interesting, considering Hardy's been under fire this week for several comments he made in which he objectified women (Gisele) and seemingly mocked his own court case by saying he plans to come out "guns blazing" when he returns to the field this week. 

If Hardy was planning to fix his image -- this video sure as hell ain't gonna help. 

We called Hardy for comment -- so far, no word back.

RHCP's John Frusciante

I'm Done Paying

For My Ex's Crappy Music Career

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

1009-john-frusciante-wife-nicole-turley-getty-01Red Hot Chilli Pepper's ex-guitarist John Frusciante is making it loud and clear ... his estranged wife, Nicole, is a struggling musician and he's done footing the bill for her to pursue her dreams.

According to new legal docs filed in their divorce ... John says Nicole's request for $75k/month in spousal support is crazy, especially because $21k of that is just to rent a music studio. 

The best part -- John says, "I don't know if you can call her recording efforts a hobby or a past-time ... but it seems improper to characterize Nicole as a professional musician."

Beyond her music habit ... Nicole also wants more than $2,600/month for gifts and expenses for her "adult" brother -- which John finds ridiculous. 

'Undateable' Actor

Splits Tongue Open

Hours Before Live Show

10/9/2015 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009_Rick_Glassman_tongue_injury_photos_launch2"Undateable" actor Rick Glassman split his tongue open during rehearsal and was spewing blood, less than 4 hours before the live show.

Glassman -- who plays Burski on the NBC comedy --  bit into a toasted bagel and accidentally chomped down on his tongue. He was rushed to the ER where he got stitches ... the photos are disturbing.

We're told Glassman has a big part in this episode, which sent producers scrambling.

We're told he's back on set with an hour to spare and doesn't sound too bad. He's hopped up on pain meds, which makes him swallow frequently.

Should make for great TV. 

MTV Star's Skydiving Crash

Witnesses Climbed 30 Ft. Tree

In Heroic Effort to Save Him

10/9/2015 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Several witnesses risked their own lives trying to rescue MTV star Erik Roner after he crashed into a tree during a skydiving accident last week ... attempting to scale a 30 foot tree in an effort to treat the injured man ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We obtained the 911 calls made by several witnesses after Roner hit a large tree while attempting to land on a golf course in Squaw Valley, CA as part of the entertainment at a celeb golf event on Sept. 28th.  

Multiple callers told the 911 operators Roner survived the initial impact but appeared very injured -- and was caught on the tree, 30 feet above the ground. 

The 911 operators instructed everyone to stay put until help arrived -- but several witnesses couldn't wait ... and climbed the tree hoping to free Roner so he could be treated on the ground. 

Emergency personnel eventually arrived to the scene but it was too late -- and Roner was pronounced dead at the scene

Roner was a regular on the MTV series "Nitro Circus" and was one of the most respected athletes on the extreme sports circuit. He was 39. 

Stevie Wonder Lawsuit

You're Blind ...

But You're Not Deaf!

10/9/2015 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-stevie-wonder-tmz-01Stevie Wonder knew full well what he was doing when he signed an agreement to pay his attorney's widow 6% of his royalties because it was read out loud to him ... according to the widow.

As we've reported ... way back in the day Stevie signed off on the deal with Johanan Vigoda -- but Stevie thinks the wool was pulled over his eyes, and he's filed a lawsuit over it.

Now, Vigoda's widow ... Susan Strack is calling BS on Stevie. She says Vigoda had a witness read the entire contract to Stevie -- including the part where she would continue to get her husband's 6% fee, even after he died.

In her legal docs, Strack acknowledges Stevie came back years later and contested the contract, but never got it done before Vigoda died. Her point is ... even though Stevie doesn't like it, the contract is still binding.

Translation: Go kick rocks. And pay me while you're doing it.


Ryan Mallett's Dad

Our Family's Hurt Over Criticism

'His Grandmas Cry'

10/9/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009-ryan-mallett-getty-01The next time you wanna talk smack about Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett -- know that you're MAKING HIS GRANDMAS VERY SAD ... so says Ryan's dad.

We spoke with Jim Mallett ... who says he spent the night at Ryan's home after the Texans lost to the Colts Thursday night -- a game in which Ryan was pulled after suffering a minor injury in the 2nd quarter.

"He's pissed off. He's a competitor. He wants to be in there," Jim tells us ... "He was 8 for 10 when he came out. He wants to play." 

Ryan's also been under attack for leaving the sidelines and heading towards the locker room before the 1st half was over ... but Jim says Ryan insists it was a simple mistake because he thought the clock ran out, he wasn't throwing a hissy fit.  

"He said to me, 'I didn't do anything on purpose.' And I can tell you that's true. That's not Ryan."

"For people to portray him as a bad person or teammate, they don't understand. If they were to meet our family, they'd know he was a good person. A compassion kid. Competitor. Someone who wants to do what's right for the team."

Jim says Ryan isn't the only one impacted by the criticism -- "You don't know how bad it hurts the family. Ryan's grandmas ... it effects them big time. They read it all. It hurts them. I've seen them in tears."

Diddy's Baby Mama


'Trifling, Trifling, Trifling'

10/9/2015 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Porter is definitely Team Matt Barnes -- telling TMZ Sports it's NEVER okay to bang your friend's ex-wife ... "especially if you're ball players!"

Diddy's baby mama was leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills when we asked about the Barnes vs. Derek Fisher situation ... something she has a VERY strong opinion about. 

Check out the clip ... Porter says Fisher was "dead wrong" -- and sums up her opinion about the NY Knicks coach in 3 words: "Trifling, trifling and more trifling."

Justin Bieber

Nude Pics Not THAT Bad ...

'Cause I'm That Big

10/9/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_justin_bieber_tmzJustin Bieber's lawyers are barking about three nude pics taken of him on vacation in Bora Bora, but we know Justin isn't all that pissed because the shots show just how ... GIFTED he is.

Multiple sources close to Bieber tell TMZ he was upset paparazzi, armed with telephoto lenses, snapped the photos of him butt (and other parts) naked frolicking with Jayde Pierce. We're told he thought it was a total invasion of his privacy.

We saw it the same way, and decided NOT to post the images. But our sources say Justin's anger faded when the pics went viral ... for one seemingly larger than average reason: Bieber's a really big deal, and we're told he's happy the world knows it now.  

As we reported, JB's lawyers threatened media outlets that published the pics. We're told his legal team was just doing its job ... sending the message that Justin's not okay with the violation.

But reality is, there's almost zero chance Justin sues ... 'cause as they say, size matters.

1008-floyd-burnt-cars-tmz-launch-01Floyd Mayweather's pricey car collection took a massive hit this week -- when a trailer transporting Floyd's Bentley and 2 Rolls Royce whips burned down to the ground ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told the truck was transporting Floyd's rides from Vegas to Miami when something went wrong just outside of Phoenix, Arizona on October 7th at 1:31 AM ... and the entire unit went up in flames. 

You can see in the pics, the cars were burnt to a crisp -- including one of Floyd's custom Jeeps. 

It's unclear how the fire started -- but Arizona State Troopers confirm the incident and say there were no injuries reported. 

TMZ Sports contacted the transportation company and confirmed the cars were shipped through Obi Okeke at Fusion Luxury Motors -- Floyd's longtime car guy. 

We reached out to Floyd and Okeke -- no comment from either one.

Instagram Solution for Daughter

Take Her Phone Away!!!

10/9/2015 6:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Robert Kennedy Jr. is searching for ways to control his daughter on social media, but his go-to is strictly old school  .... yank her phone.

1009-kyra-kennedy-instagram-011009-kyra-kennedy-instagram-02RFK Jr. was leaving a charity event in Santa Monica Thursday when our photog asked about 20-year-old Kyra and the pics that showcase her partying. Frankly, it looks relatively tame, but tame is relative.

And then our guy asked an intriguing question ... who'd have the best Instagram ... JFK or Teddy?
