Donald Trump Whatever He Touches (Or Eats) Turns to Gold ... On Wall Street

1/20/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

In case you haven't heard -- especially from him -- Donald Trump's first year in office has been great for the stock market ... but 3 companies in particular have benefited bigly from their association with the Prez.

TMZ did some research, and found that the stock price of McDonald's -- which Trump loves to eat, Twitter -- which Trump loves to tweet, and KFC -- another fast food favorite ... have all seen huge gains since he became president on January 20, 2017.

Mickey D's has seen the biggest boost so far during Trump's time in office -- its stock has risen 44% over the past year.

Twitter's close behind with a 42% increase, and many argue the Prez's usage of the social media platform is keeping it in business.

Yum! Brands, which owns KFC, has also seen a substantial 29% increase.

As we reported, Trump's physical this week "went exceptionally well" ... but he did discuss dieting with his doctor.

Gotta think 2 of these companies are rooting against that.

1/20/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Duhamel may look like he's on steroids -- as he says, "Look at me!" -- but it's all an illusion.

Josh was in a jokey mood Friday at LAX when our photog asked about allegations that he -- along with Mark Wahlberg and WWE star Roman Reigns -- scored steroids from now-imprisoned dealer, Richard Rodriguez.

Josh did a little flexing under his jacket and made us believe he's juicin' ... but in the end, he called BS.

As we reported, the 3 guys don't have to worry about a DEA investigation or anything ... but it seems like none of them were anyway.

1/20/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Petty's oasis for over a decade can be yours ...  at a bargain price.

The late singer's crib in Lake Sherwood -- a ritzy area near the famed Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA -- hit the market for $5.495 million. The 5,300 square foot pad has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms but one of the best features is 125 feet of lake frontage on a private cul-de-sac.

It's built for a rock star -- the walls are 2 feet thick!!! And talk about location, location, location -- the house is 3 minutes from the country club and just 9 miles from the Malibu coast.

Tom bought the crib back in 2007 and put it on the market just a few months before his shocking death back in October. It was initially listed for $5.895 million but was listed just days ago with a discount.

Amy Alcini and Dana Sparks of Compass Real Estate rep the sellers.

Roger Stone wants Donald Trump to let the American people legally toke, like he promised in the campaign -- and if Jeff Sessions is standing in the way ... smoke him out.

We got President Trump's former adviser in NYC, and he had a hot take on pot and Sessions' decision this month to reverse a hands-off approach on legalized marijuana. 

Can't say we expected this -- but Stone firmly believes Trump must fulfill his pledge and allow the states to handle their weed biz ... sans any pestering from the feds. 

Like he says ... Trump could lose big on this issue if Sessions keeps "f***ing it up." Stone says Jeff's gotta go.

Tom Petty Died From Massive Accidental Drug OD

1/19/2018 3:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Petty's autopsy results are in, and they show the singer died from an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications. 

The L.A. County Coroner says a number of Tom's organs failed due to "mixed drug toxicity."

The autopsy report says when paramedics arrived he was in full cardiac arrest, but CPR revived him -- but on the way to the hospital he lost pulse for 20 minutes. He went into cardiac arrest a second time in the hospital and died 21 hours after being admitted.  

Tom's autopsy report shows the singer was on several pain meds, including Fentanyl patches, oxycodone (Oxycontin), temazepam (Restoril), alprazolam (Xanax), citalopram (Celexa), acetyl fentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl. The reason doctors prescribed the meds was because of a number of medical problems, including emphysema, knee problems and a fractured hip.

The family says the linchpin to Tom's demise was the fractured hip. He insisted on touring for 53 concert dates with the condition, which worsened over time and caused him to take the meds. On the date he had the heart attack he was told his hip had graduated to a full-on break that made the pain unbearable and may have caused the overuse of meds.

The autopsy says Petty suffered from coronary artery atherosclerosis.

As we reported ... Tom's official death certificate left his cause of death as "deferred," leaving it as a mystery until now.

We broke the story ... Tom went into full cardiac arrest before being taken to a hospital in L.A. He eventually died when his family took him off life support.

Fentanyl was also linked to the deaths of Prince and Lil Peep.

Tom was 66.

Too Short is being accused of sexual battery ... TMZ has learned.

The rap legend is facing a lawsuit ... filed Friday in Los Angeles by a woman named Teana Louis. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Teana says Too Short sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions ... between June and October of 2016.

In the suit, she says the attacks included forced oral sex, vaginal sex and sodomy.

Teana says she and Short met in December 2015, and eventually produced a song together in April 2016. She claims that's when he made the first unwanted advances. She claims the first assault went down in June when they went to a hotel room in Downtown L.A.

According to the docs, Too Short threw her onto the bed, held her down, undressed her and began performing oral sex on her. She claims subsequent incidents happened in hotel rooms or the studio. She claims on one occasion he told her, "I'm just going to put the tip in" ... and, although she said, "No, please no" ... he continued. In the suit, she says he held her down during vaginal sex -- she was left bleeding -- and then "brutally sodomized" her.

She's suing for sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, gender discrimination and false imprisonment.
