Alex Rodriguez

Famous Ex-GF Breaks Silence

'We're Still Friends'

3/10/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Can you stay friends with an ex??

Alex Rodriguez certainly can ... so says his last girlfriend Torrie Wilson -- who tells TMZ Sports they're not only on GREAT terms, but she'll be rooting FOR him when baseball season starts. 

The former WWE Diva was leaving the gym in Los Angeles Monday when we asked how things were going ever since she and A-Rod ended their 3-year relationship back in February. 

According to Page Six, the relationship fizzled (at least in part) because Alex is still tight with another ex ... his former wife Cynthia.

But Torrie doesn't seem upset at all -- and says she'll "always" be friends with the guy. 

Big Sean

Please Mama

Don't Spill the Beans on Ariana!!!

3/9/2015 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ariana Grande has passed the most important Big Sean dating test -- she's got the public approval of his mother ... much to the dismay of her son.

Big Sean and his adorable mom were at LAX on Sunday when our photog warmed them up with a few questions ... before slipping in one on Ariana.  

Before the rapper could deflect, mom was singing Ariana's praises ... and Sean couldn't stop her.

Wonder if she felt the same about Naya Rivera?

0306-subasset-aaron-hernandez-joint

Here it is ... the first picture of the joint that prosecutors believe links Aaron Hernandez to the murder of Odin Lloyd

Officials say the joint was found at the murder scene in Massachusetts ... and has Aaron's DNA on it. Prosecutors also believe the joint contain's Lloyd's DNA. 

Officials believe both men puffed from the same marijuana cigarette ... which they say further proves that Hernandez was at the scene when Lloyd was killed. 

As we previously reported, prosecutors also have video of Hernandez at a gas station roughly 90 minutes before the murder ... in the same car that was spotted at the murder scene.

Anderson Silva

I'm Not a Cheater

[Video]

3/4/2015 6:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anderson Silva tells TMZ Sports ... he did NOT use performance enhancing drugs to give him an edge in the octagon ... saying he's genuinely SHOCKED he failed his drug tests. 

The UFC legend was out in L.A. when we asked straight up -- how do you explain the failed drug tests surrounding the January 31st fight at UFC 183 with Nick Diaz???

His answer -- "I don't know what happened."

Silva says he was completely blindsided by the results -- but does NOT believe anything in his system affected his performance in the fight. 

Anderson sorta acknowledges taking something to help his body heal after badly breaking his leg -- but says he's convinced he didn't violate any rules. 

Still, Silva understands how bad the failed tests make him look -- "I think this is bad for [the] sport. This is so bad for me and my life."

Anderson says he wants a REMATCH with Nick Diaz to prove his victory is legit -- and even has a message for 50 Cent -- save that $1.6 MILLION he was planning to bet on Mayweather ... and put it on him!

'Dr. 90210' Robert Rey

I Punched a Guy

For Squeezing My Nuts

3/1/2015 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0301-robert-rey-ball-grab-INSTAGRAM-01"Dr. 90210" Robert Rey claims he was assaulted by a drunk dude in Brazil this weekend ... and the guy grabbed him by the nuts so hard the reality star says his testicles are STILL inflamed.

The doctor was dining at a restaurant Saturday in Campina Grande when he claims a man asked him to snap a pic. Rey obliged, but the man groped his crotch out of nowhere ... calling him "Dr. Gay."

Rey, who studies martial arts, says he defended himself by punching the guy twice in the jaw, and then took him down with a kick. His scrap with the guy sparked a drunken brawl between several other people in the restaurant, but Rey stayed out of it.

The reality doc says he didn't call cops and doesn't want to press charges because, "I was young and also did youth nonsense!"

Rey posted a picture of the nut job to prove he was justified in defending his family jewels.

Michelle Rodriguez

Note to Minorities ...

Stop Stealing White Superhero Roles!!

2/28/2015 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022815_michelle_rodriguez_launch_v2

Michelle Rodriguez has a different take in the lack of diversity in Hollywood ... she thinks it's ridiculous to make things right by making superheros less white.

Rodriguez was cruising out of Katsuya Friday night when she shot down rumors she's in talks to play the Green Lantern ... while also throwing shade at minorities who play white superheroes.

Michelle has evidence it's happening.   Cases in point ... Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury ... and the online campaign for Idris Elba to become Bond.

Rodriguez' beef seems to revolve around the lack of creativity.  Check out the video.  It's interesting.

update_graphic_red_bar

2:16 PM PST -- Michelle just posted an apology video on Facebook directed towards anyone who took offense ... then offered up a more detailed explanation of what she was trying to say.

Aaron Hernandez

Gas Station Dance Party

Before Odin Lloyd Murder

2/26/2015 8:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022615_aaron_hernandez_launch

Aaron Hernandez was in one helluva good mood in the hours before Odin Lloyd was murdered ... dancing on his way into a local gas station ... and it was all captured on video.  

The video was shot around 2AM on June 17, 2013 ... about 90 minutes before officials say Lloyd was murdered. 

Prosecutors believe the video plays a key role in the timeline ... connecting Hernandez with the car that Lloyd got into a short time later ... the same car that was seen driving into the secluded area where Lloyd's body was found later that day. 

Prosecutors also say the video shows Hernandez buying gum inside the gas station -- gum that officials say also connects Aaron to the murder. 

'Jane the Virgin' Star

Mayweather Ticket Prices Are Insane!

2/22/2015 10:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022215_gina_rodriguez_launchWith cheap tickets going for around $4,000-a-pop, even the rich and famous are thinking twice about going to the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight ... including "Jane the Virgin" star Gina Rodriguez.

Besides the fact it's going to be the biggest "who's who" event of the year, Gina also happens to be a huge boxing fan ... and her father was a famous boxing referee (who worked the last Pacquiao fight).

But when we saw Gina out yesterday, she told us it's just too rich for her blood ... and with dad having retired, she doesn't even have the hookup anymore!!

FYI -- some experts believe ringside seats to the fight could go for anywhere from $50k to $100k on the secondary market.

... and that doesn't even include a hotel room -- which are already selling out like crazy!!!

Charlie Sheen

Dead Again

In 'Men' Finale

2/20/2015 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022015_two_and_a_half_men_launch_v4Chuck Lorre and the folks at "Two and a Half Men" used the finale to rip on Charlie Sheen all episode long … and then gruesomely kill him … all because Charlie wouldn't do as he was told.

Long story short, the show set up a scenario where Charlie's character wasn't really dead. In the final scene, a man who looks like Charlie (seen only from behind) shows up at the house ... but is killed by a falling piano, much to the delight of Lorre. 

Lorre's infamous vanity card explained the show wanted Charlie to return for real in the finale, but Sheen refused. Lorre claims Sheen instead wanted a heartwarming scene to set the stage for a spin-off show with Jon Cryer.

Lorre was having NONE of that, but watch -- he still copped Sheen's catchphrase to close the show.

Russell Simmons

Geraldo's an Attention Whore

He Hasn't Done S**t to Help Black People

2/19/2015 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Russell Simmons is laughing off Geraldo Rivera's accusation that Simmons is hurting the black community -- as the ravings of a man who's desperate for attention after losing "Celebrity Apprentice."

If you missed it ... Geraldo attacked Simmons for spreading hip-hop culture which he believes cuts them off from mainstream jobs. 

Simmons isn't losing any sleep, telling us Wednesday in Hollywood ... "After losing, he needs to just talk to get himself relevant." 

Watch, there's a lot more -- including Russell's response to Geraldo calling him a "dear friend."

Hint: Would a dear friend say Geraldo "hasn't done s**t to help people" -- or intentionally mispronounce his name ... repeatedly? Yeah, that's what we thought. 

Alex Rodriguez

I'M SORRY I CHEATED

... Again

2/17/2015 10:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0217_alex-rodriguez_getty_2Alex Rodriguez is begging for Yankees fans to forgive him ... again ... penning a handwritten apology in which he "take[s] full responsibility" for pumping himself full of performance-enhancing drugs. 

In the letter, addressed "To the Fans" ... A-Rod says, "I take full responsibility for the mistakes that led to my suspension for the 2014 season."

0217-WITHOUT-SWIPE-alex-rodriguez-apology-letter-SUB-TWITTER-01"I regret that my actions made the situation worse than it needed to be. To Major league baseball, the Yankees, the Steinbrenner family, the Players Association, and you, the fans, I can only say I'm sorry."

He adds, "I accept that many of you will not believe my apology or anything that I say at this point. I understand why and that's on me."

"I'm ready to put this chapter behind me and play some ball."

FYI -- Rodriguez first confessed to juicing in 2009 ... saying he used steroids in 2001, 2002 and 2003. 

Then in 2013, MLB investigated Rodriguez again ... and found he was using PEDs. He was ultimately suspended for the entire 2014 season. 

Jennifer Lopez Sued

Casper's Dog Is Terrorizing Me

... Says Neighbor

2/13/2015 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0213_dog_injury_launchJennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are officially reuniting in court -- the woman who was bitten by one of Casper's dogs is suing both of them ... and her injuries are pretty graphic.

In the lawsuit, Andrea Ashley -- one of JLo's neighbors -- says she was getting out of her car back in December ... when Smart's boxer named Bear mauled her left arm and hand ... leaving her with broken bones and cuts. She's included photos of her bloodied limb in the suit.

Ashley says, right after the attack ... Casper walked out of JLo's house wearing only pajama bottoms and came over to apologize. That's interesting because Casper and Jennifer had broken up several months before the attack. As we reported ... J.Lo's people told us the dogs were only at her house for a visit with her kids. Apparently, Casper was visiting too. 

Ashley says this wasn't the first attack -- Bear also escaped through a hole in JLo's fence and attempted to attack her in April. She says only her gardener saved her from getting mauled that time.

In the docs, Ashley says Casper called her, apologized, and offered to pay all of her medical bills. As for why she's suing Lopez ... Ashley says Jennifer bears some responsibility because the dog is escaping through her fence.

Further, she says Bear has remained at Jennifer's home since Jan. 8 ... and she's afraid he could get out again. Animal Control told us Bear was quarantined at Casper's home since the attack.
