Tom Brady & Gisele Jet to Italy Because ... Best Suspension Ever!!

9/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_tom_brady_gisele_bundchen_dinner_Capri_launch_3Tom Brady might wanna extend his NFL suspension -- his Patriots keep winning, and he's free to fly off to Italy on a whim with his supermodel wife ... the ultimate win-win.

TMZ Sports got these photos of Gisele and TB enjoying a romantic dinner Friday night on the island of Capri. The couple got all cozy at a restaurant called Aurora -- we're told he had pasta, she had a salad (typical model).

The Pats' future QB fought this 4-game suspension for Deflategate for more than a year, but check the pics -- Tom doesn't look too pissed about his newfound free time.

It's back to the salt mines in less than 2 weeks, but for now Brady's 100% the GOAT ... at being exiled.

NFL's Antonio Brown Fires Private Chef ... In Bad Breakup

9/20/2016 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Antonio Brown stuck a fork in his private chef -- who was one of his close friends -- and it's clear it was a bad breakup.

The Pittsburgh Steelers superstar was inseparable from Chef Niko ever since he hired him earlier this year ... and they would often post videos of each other on Snapchat. 

In fact, our friends at "For The Win" just published a story about how close the two were. The story also details Niko's battle with drug addiction and how he's conquering it. 

But something went down between Brown and Niko this week ... something bad ... because the NFL star fired the chef and in a new video, Niko makes it clear the relationship is OVER. 

"I thought he was my friend and that's not the case I guess."

Neither Brown nor Niko have revealed what happened behind the scenes. Brown issued a "new chef alert" Monday night to announce Niko has been replaced.

Benihana Sued Sushi Chefs Can Split Fish ... But Not Tips!

9/17/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0914_benihana_tip_share_getty_tmz_compositeA Benihana waiter says he got screwed out of his tips by having to cut in the cooks behind the counter -- and far from woking it back, he's suing.

The server who filed the class action suit claims he was forced to fork over tons of his hard-earned tips to sushi chefs at his NY restaurant ... for 8 years! 

He claims he lost around $80 every week from '08-'16 -- which comes out to a little over $33k. He also says his restaurant's alleged practice of splitting front of house tips with back of house employees violates labor laws.

The suit claims there's a helluva lot more employees who might have been stiffed too, and invites 'em to hop on for a payout.

We reached out to Benihana ... so far, no word back. 

L.A. Rams Yo, Patriots ... We Dig Lobstah Too

9/16/2016 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0916_cousins_maine_lobster_truck_la_Rams_launchThe L.A. Rams are eating like they're New England Patriots, even if they're not scoring like them. Yet.

The Cousins Maine Lobster food truck rolled up to Rams practice on the Cal Lutheran University campus in Thousand Oaks and shelled out $4,000 worth of lobster to the players.

Seems like the team's already going Hollywood, since even their food has to be famous now. The owners of Cousins Maine struck a deal on "Shark Tank" with Barbara Corcoran.

The Rams have their home opener in L.A. this weekend, and they'll be fueled up on lobster tots, lobster grilled cheese, and lobster rolls. 

Probably won't be enough to help 'em upset the Seahawks, but at least they got some good grub.

Actor Duane Martin Show Us the Money! You Jacked Last Mayweather Fight

9/14/2016 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0914-duane-martin-tmz-getty-03Actor Duane Martin bobbed and weaved his way out of paying to air the Floyd Mayweather-Andre Berto fight in his restaurant ... according to the company in charge of distributing the bout.

J&J Sports Productions says it had exclusive rights to license Floyd's last fight -- a year ago -- to bars, restaurants, hotels and casinos. But according to a lawsuit, Martin and his restaurant, XEN Lounge, straight-up jacked the feed. 

In the docs, J&J says Martin illegally intercepted the feed and showed the fight at the restaurant ... which helped them make a bundle that night.

Depending on the capacity of XEN, it would've cost a few thousand to get the fight on the up and up. Now J&J is suing for damages in excess of $175k.

We've reached out to Martin, so far no word back. 

Louis Lombardi Can the Outrage Over 9/11 Walmart Tribute

9/11/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

'Sopranos' and "24" star Louis Lombardi thinks people getting pissed off over Walmart's Coke can 9/11 tribute ... is un-American.

Earlier this week a Florida Walmart built a 20 ft. display of the Twin Towers and an American flag using 12-packs of Coke products. Some people appreciated the artistry, but others found it a disrespectful, commercialized abomination.

Lombardi, a native New Yorker, thinks the haters are looking at the display the wrong way.

His take? Any tribute's a good one, and there's more important stuff to bitch about on social media.

BBQ Rib War 76-Year-Old Mows Down Racks ... Edged Out By Chestnut

9/1/2016 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Old people can EAT -- just ask the 76-YEAR-OLD MAN who came shockingly close to catching Joey Chestnut at one of the BIGGEST rib competitions in the world!! 

It all went down at the Nugget World Rib-Eating Championship near Reno, NV -- where Chestnut chomped through 9.6 POUNDS of spare ribs in 12 minutes (roughly 5 FULL RACKS). 

But the biggest shocker ... 76-year-old Rich "The Locust" LeFevre -- a retired C.P.A. who devoured his way into a 3RD PLACE finish ... crushing other competitors who appeared to be more than half his age!

LeFevre finished by eating 4.8 pounds of ribs!!! We'd say he's a guy you need to keep an eye on in the future ... but, you know ...

Matt Stonie took 2nd place with 7.8 pounds ... failing to defend his 2015 Rib-Eating championship. 

Joey Chestnut -- the king is (baby) back!!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0830-kim-kardashian-kanye-candy-store-tmzKimKanye and North felt the need ... for sweets, and lots of 'em based on how much they forked out during a candy shopping spree.

The fam hit up the Dylan's Candy Bar flagship store Monday, and sources tell us they whipped out 2 Benjs for lollipops, Push Pops and Gobstoppers. They also stocked up on sour goods like Sour Skittles, Rainbow Nerds Rope, Trolli Gummy Peachie-O's and Sour Octopus. 

Zero Sour Patch Kids though. Big mistake. Huge.

Mom and Dad also scooped up a cupcake pillow and temporary tatts for North -- but a new toothbrush and floss might've been more appropriate.

Gladys Knight I'm Not Chicken to Sue My Son

8/29/2016 1:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-gladys-knight-restaurant-chicken-and-waffles-TMZ-YELP-01Gladys Knight might've just proved blood isn't always thicker than water -- she just sued her son to stop using mama's name and face in the restaurant biz.

Gladys wants the person now running the restaurants previously managed by her son, Shanga Hankerson, to 86 her from signs and promotions for the chicken and waffle joints.

Gladys says she gave the green light to use her name and image for the restaurants back in '99, but put the kibosh on the deal a few months ago after the eateries were raided by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Her son was arrested for allegedly pocketing a million bucks.

And one more thing ... in addition to money and an injunction, Gladys wants all her memorabilia adorning the restaurants returned to her.

Tristan Thompson Canadian Trophy-Off ... At Famous Donut Shop

8/26/2016 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826-tristan-thompson-twitter-01If the Stanley Cup can go on a donut run ... so can the Larry O'Brien trophy! 

Cleveland Cavs stud Tristan Thompson grabbed the NBA championship hardware and took it on a little getaway to Canada ... where he's been giving it a tour of his home country. 

But the best part ... he took Larry to Tim Hortons ... a famous coffee and donut shop chain up north where Sidney Crosby brought the NHL's biggest prize back in July. 

"I saw Sidney Crosby brought the Stanley Cup to @timhortons so only right I brought Larry!" Tristan tweeted. 

Maybe Peyton will road trip with the Vince Lombardi Trophy next ... not like he's got anything else to do.

Justin Bieber I Got Yer Footlong Right Here, Sofia

Exclusive Video

Justin Bieber is one helluva a multitasker ... dancing, chowing down on a sub and getting some QT with Sofia Richie ... and he did it all in front of the TMZ Celebrity Tour bus.

Sofia and the Biebs were cruising down Sunset Blvd in WeHo Thursday during rush hour when they ended up stopped next to our bus.

We tried to get some intel on JB's sandwich of choice, but all he was giving up was his dance moves. Fans on the bus and on Sunset Blvd. seemed more than satisfied.

0826_emily_sears_beach_bikini_thong_buut_launchWe all know Emily Sears can throw down burgers, thanks to Carl's Jr. ... but her ass is pretty good at devouring stuff too.

You know I have to throw this up for #nationalpizzaday #🍕#pizza
