Katt Williams A Salt & Battery Bust at Restaurant

4/28/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Normally we'd take a Katt Williams arrest with a grain of salt, but this one was over multiple grains of salt ... which the comedian allegedly threw at a restaurant manager. 

Katt got arrested late Wednesday night at Atlanta seafood restaurant Spondivits after he got into it with the staff ... according to cops.

We're told Katt's party walked into the restaurant and decided to seat themselves instead of waiting for a host. Katt soon followed and started arguing with the manager over the seating situation.

Katt allegedly settled matters by grabbing a salt shaker, chucking it at the manager and smashing him in the face. Cops say his lip was bleeding, and Katt had fled when they arrived.

Officers found Williams a little later and arrested him for battery (no salt) ... he posted bond and was released around 12:30 AM. 


Chris Pratt I Ruined Aaron Rodgers' Steak ... My Bad.

4/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mystery is over. 

Chris Pratt says he takes FULL RESPONSIBILITY for torching Aaron Rodgers' steak on a couples trip earlier this month -- falling on the sword in the biggest celebrity meat story since "Kim Kardashian, Superstar." 

Turns out Pratt's wife, Anna Faris, is tight with Aaron's lady, Olivia Munn ... and the foursome went on a fun outdoorsy vacation together last week. And everything was cool ... until dinner. 

When the guys charred the steak, Olivia man-shamed the duo on social media. Now, Pratt's doing what any superhero would ... saving a friend.  

0427-olivia-munn-instagram-02But more importantly ... sounds like the guys had a good time together (perhaps a bromance is brewing?) ... and Pratt says the Packers QB is quite the outdoorsman.  

Fingers crossed this one lasts longer than McConaughey/Armstrong.

Billy Dee Williams Saddles Up Again To Pitch Colt 45

4/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Billy Dee Williams' mug is coming soon to a can near you ... 'cause he's now the face of his old go-to beverage -- Colt 45.

Lando Calrissian is reprising his role as the malt liquor's spokesman, but this time his signature smirk and mustache are emblazoned on the can because -- well, why not? It works every time.

Billy Dee faced heavy criticism when he first signed on to promote Colt 45 back in the 80s ... due to concerns about marketing booze in underprivileged neighborhoods. 

We asked Billy about that on Tuesday's TMZ Live -- and it's clearly NOT an issue to him.

Exclusive Details

0422-jon-jones-instagram-01Jon Jones was so serious about getting body ready for his comeback, he hired a food specialist to take over his diet leading up to UFC 197.

TMZ Sports spoke with weight management specialist Louis Giordano who tells us he's been preparing all of Jon's pre and post workout meals for the last 9 weeks.

It's a big fight for Jon -- one that could put him back on top of the UFC -- and Lou says Jones has been super meticulous about his 6-meal-a-day diet, pounding a TON of protein to prepare for battle.

"Chicken, turkey, buffalo/bison, steak, and salmon. I’ve also prepared lots of eggs, veggies such as kale, broccoli, spinach, & arugula. Black rice, sweet potato pancakes, oatmeal and more."

Though he says they don't really watch calories, Lou insisted Jon is no Rob Kardashian -- SO NO CHEAT DAYS.

"We don’t do that. Jon is focused on the prize and excited to get back in the ring, cheating isn’t a part of this."

Check out pics of the vittles below ...


Sen. Ted Cruz Blows Softball Soup Question ... And Probably NY Primary

4/15/2016 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sen. Ted Cruz could have taken a big bite out of Donald Trump's lead when we lobbed him a question about his favorite subject ... soup!

Ted's made no secret about his love for Campbell's soup, so our photog asked what's his favorite kind. Mind you, he's trailing Trump and John Kasich in NY, where Tuesday's key primary is being held.

Check out the video ... apparently, the senator thought he was in Dixieland, instead of Yankeeland. Our photog gave him what would've been the right answer to suck up to NYC voters.


Tamar Braxton Kobe Took Me On Date Once ... To Friday's

Breaking News

Nothing says "18-year-old NBA millionaire pimp" like loaded potato skins ... just ask Kobe Bryant who took Tamar Braxton on a date to Friday's. 

Braxton was dishing about her "sorta" date with Kobe on "The Real" (airs April 13th, check local listings) -- saying the two got dinner in Philly right after Mamba got drafted back in 1996 ... but the vibe was more friendly than freaky. 

In the end, Braxton says the two ended up as "homies." 

Moral of the story ... if Friday's is good enough for Kobe Bryant, it's good enough for you!

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna On the Juice

4/12/2016 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0412_rob_kardashian_blac_chyna_mcdonalds_X17Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna look like their weekly cheat day has become cheat DAYS -- they started their day by pulling through a McDonald's drive-thru for breakfast.

No word if they got any hash browns (wouldn't blame 'em) ... but we can see they got OJ. Not the worst diet slipup, but the sugar could be an issue.

In the last month they've hit up a couple of In-N-Outs and even pulled over for ice cream on the side of the road.

As they say, quitting is easy ... when you've done it a hundred times.


Abigail Ratchford vs. In-N-Out Her Double-Doubles Are Bad for Biz

4/12/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041116_abigail_ratchford_primaryAbigail Ratchford's milkshake dripping, booby bouncing homage to In-N-Out ain't bringing the burger joint's execs to the yard -- they're demanding she take down her viral video ... or else.

In-N-Out lawyers fired off a letter sent to the model's producer, Liverichmedia ... saying they've been flooded with complaints over a video posted last month showing Abby in "various sexually suggestive acts with In-N-Out Burger food."

At first viewing (second, third and fourth too) ... the "Dream Girl" clip might seem like a great plug, but the burger bosses are worried customers will think they're in bed with Ratchford -- which they say doesn't mesh with the company's image.

If it isn't taken down immediately, In-N-Out says it will likely serve up a lawsuit. Fresh. 


Cat Cora Betrayed By Wife I Do the Divorcing Around Here

4/12/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041116-cat-jennifer-cora-getty'Iron Chef' star Cat Cora was stabbed in the back by her estranged wife, who intentionally ignored PR 101 -- let the celebrity file for divorce against the nobody.  

According to documents filed in the divorce between Cat and Jennifer Cora, Cat's lawyer fired off an angry letter to Jennifer's mouthpiece, claiming they had a deal -- Cat would file the divorce petition for "public relations" reasons. Translation ... make it clear Cat was leaving Jennifer. 

According to the letter, when Cat was flying somewhere, Jennifer backstabbed her and had her lawyer file for divorce. Cat's lawyer says Jennifer clearly did this out of spite. 

The letter, written last October right after the petition was filed, was just included in the court file but makes it clear how nasty this divorce got.  

Cat's lawyer also accused Jennifer of trash-talking Cat to their kids' school and to mutual friends.

It hasn't gotten better ... Cat wants Jennifer to submit to a vocational analysis ... in other words, she needs to get a job.

4/8/2016 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-NFL star Takeo Spikes says he had a racket at Augusta National when he was a kid -- slingin' the white stuff to rich people ... in the way of egg sandwiches. 

It's actually a pretty interesting story ... Spikes explains, "You know when you a kid and you don't have nothing, you go where the money is at."

And his hustle ... selling egg sammys. 

Now, Spikes is one of those rich guys he used to sell to ... and has become a golfer himself. In fact, he calls out a huge NBA star and vows to whoop his ass on the links. 

Check out the clip.

Johnny Manziel says he's NOT the boozy party boy everyone thinks he is -- telling TMZ Sports he's NOT drinking (just eating at nice restaurants) and "staying on track."

A sober Manziel was leaving Le Jardin in Hollywood around 2 AM Friday morning when he told us, "I'm not really partying though. I'm just out with some buddies ... No drinking, hangin' with the boys."

He added, "I'm out at the spots. I'm eating dinner. I'm eating good food. I'm not doing anything crazy though. I'm being smart."

Stay tuned ... 

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Our Engagement Is Poppin'!!

4/6/2016 4:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna found a fringe benefit to getting engaged -- cheat day with the ice cream man! 

Rob and Chyna turned their Range Rover around when they saw an ice cream truck parked on the side of the road. You'll recall they also made an In N' Out run last month to celebrate Rob's birthday.

As cheat days go, this ain't so bad -- they scored two bomb pops at about 40 calories each -- but still ... there's a pattern here.

The day after the wedding should be epic!


Dale Earnhardt Jr. Posts Gross Sandwich ... Internet Freaks Out

4/5/2016 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805_DALE_EARNHART_JR_SANDWICH_INSTAGRAMNASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. just revealed to the world he happily eats mayonnaise and banana sandwiches ... and the world responded with appropriate disgust and shock.

Dale took to his Twitter account moments ago and posted a picture of the half-made mayo and 'nana monstrosity, with the caption "Making my favorite sandwich. I swear it's delicious. @Hellmanns."

Obviously no one believed him ... and the reaction in the Twittosphere was swift with Dale getting clowned mercilessly in his comments section. Here are some of the best.

"@DaleJr is this a cry for help?"

”@DaleJrIs this some sort of sick joke?"

"@DaleJr Perhaps South Carolina or Tennessee will welcome you and your shenanigans with open arms but that will not be tolerated here."

Different strokes for different folks we guess ... some strokes are revolting though.
