8/17/2016 8:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-rg3-new-gf-tmz-sports-01With his marriage apparently over, Robert Griffin III has already moved on ... 'cause he's getting VERY close with a smokin' hot new blonde and TMZ Sports has the pics.

Griffin is currently separated from his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, (they have 1 child together) ... with a divorce in the works. 

But over the past couple of weeks, he's been out in public with Grete Sadeiko -- a 23-year-old Estonian-born track and field athlete who currently attends Florida State University. 

0817-rg3-grete-sadeiko-instagram-02In fact, the two held hands on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame during a recent trip to L.A. 

There's more ... Grete has also been posting thinly-veiled messages to the Cleveland Browns QB on Twitter (as pointed out by our friends at BSO) ... even referring to him as her "baby."

On August 12th, the Browns took on the Packers in a pre-season game. Grete tweeted, "Good luck to my baby tonight!!! And then hurry home."

She included an emoji of a dog (Browns reference) and a football. 



Shemar Moore My Message Wasn't for Gibson ... But Other 'Criminal' Star a Possibility

8/17/2016 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Most people thought Shemar Moore's cryptic words on karma were all about his ex co-star -- and nemesis -- Thomas Gibson, but Shemar's hinting it WAS aimed at a different "Criminal Minds" actor. 

Shemar was out in L.A. when a photog asked if he was reacting to Thomas getting fired from "Criminal Minds" ... since they famously had beef on set. Check out the clip ... Shemar says people got it twisted -- denying he was throwing shade at Gibson.

The other prime suspect is Keith Tisdell -- a former friend and co-star who was recently convicted for stealing $60k from Shemar's charity. He definitely did NOT deny it was Tisdell.

As for his current feelings about Gibson? Shemar was polite, for sure, but still seems kinda icy.

Karma, bro.

WWE's Big Show Confirms Shaq Showdown at WrestleMania ... 'It's Happening'

8/17/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Get your popcorn ready ... 'cause the Big Show vs. Shaq matchup is DEFINITELY going down at WrestleMania 33 ... so says the Big Show himself. 

Last we heard, the two guys were down to square off -- but the WWE said the match wasn't officially set. 

But that was 2 weeks ago ... and now Big Show says it's a done deal -- "That's confirmed."

The 7-footer says he and Shaq "got the ball rolling" at the ESPYs and now it's a sure thing -- but heavy promotion for the event won't begin until January, considering WrestleMania 33 isn't until April. 

You gotta watch the clip ... Big Show says he's got all the respect in the world for Shaq -- "It doesn't mean I'm not gonna slap the crap out of him when I get the chance!"

Question is ... does Show think he can chokeslam Shaq? Check out what he says.

Shaun White Yes, I Sent Those Texts ... But Lawsuit Is Bogus

8/16/2016 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816-shawn-white-lena-GETTY-TMZ-01Shaun White says he DID send a bunch of sexually explicit texts to the female drummer of his band -- but says the two were friends at the time ... and her allegations of sexual harassment are bogus. 

We broke the story ... Lena Zawaideh is suing White -- claiming he bombarded her with inappropriate text messages during her 7 year stint in their band, Bad Things.

She claims some of the texts included photos of male genitals, female nudity and other graphic images.

White is now responding to the allegations with a statement issued through his attorney, Kerry Garvis Wright

"Many years ago, I exchanged texts with a friend who is now using them to craft a bogus lawsuit."

"There is absolutely no coincidence to the timing of her claims, and we will defend them vigorously in court."

Stay tuned ... 

Tina Knowles Beyonce On Snapchat ... That's News to Me!

8/16/2016 12:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce fans desperately want to believe she has a secret Snapchat account, thanks to her mother ... but now Tina Knowles is doing her best to crush the Beyhive buzz.

We grilled Tina at LAX about a recent face swap video she posted ... which she claimed Beyonce created. Naturally, the first reaction was ... Bey's undercover on social media!

But check out Tina's explanation, and pretty strong denial. It actually might check out, since face swapping isn't exclusive to Snapchat. 

Bottom line, the Hive's outta luck ... probably. Tina defnitely hedged a bit at the end of this clip.

Shaun White Sued Graphic Sexual Harassment Allegations ... Penis Pics, Fecal Matter, Hair Demands

8/16/2016 10:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


update_graphic_red_bar12:35 PM PT -- Shaun has issued a statement vigorously denying the allegations.

update-grey-gray-barThe female drummer in Shaun White's rock band is doubling down in her lawsuit against the X Games star -- claiming he sexually harassed her for years ... and she has the text messages to prove it. 

We broke the story ... White is being sued by Lena Zawaideh -- who formed the band Bad Things with White back in 2008. She was fired shortly after the end of their 2014 tour. She claims she hasn't been paid for some of her work. 

In new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Zawaideh claims she was subjected to the "darker, misogynistic personality" of White during her 7 years in the band.

Among the allegations, Zawaideh claims White sent her sexually explicit and graphic images of "engorged and erect penises" and forced her to watch sexually disturbing videos "including videos sexualizing human fecal matter."

One of the videos Zawaideh claims she was forced to watch was a couple killing a bear and then having sex on top of it. 

She also claims White forced her to watch "Church of Fudge" -- a hardcore porn "involving a priest, a nun and fecal matter."

At one point, Zawaideh claims White stuck his hands down his pants, approached Zawaideh, and then "stuck his hands in her face trying to make her smell them."

She also claims he tried to kiss her on the mouth at a Halloween party in 2010 -- but she shut him down. 

In her suit, filed by attorney Lawrance Bohm, Zawaideh claims White ran the band like a tyrant -- ordering her to cut her hair and wear sexually provocative outfits, despite her protests. 


Zawaideh claims White would scold her when she wore more conservative outfits such as fleece sweaters.

Zawaideh issued a statement saying, "I am pursuing this case because women should not have to tolerate harassment at work. Shaun White should not be allowed to do whatever he wants just because he is famous. Although I am embarrassed to have been treated this way, I cannot sit by and watch him do this to other women."

Zawaideh is suing for non-payment of her contract plus other damages for the alleged sexual harassment.

We reached out to Shaun's camp -- so far, no word back. 

Billy Bob Thornton Johnny, I Never Banged Amber!!!

8/16/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-billy-bob-thorton-depp-mirror-tmzJohnny Depp could have saved the paint -- and the blood --- when he allegedly wrote the words "Billy Bob" with what was left of his finger on a mirror ... because Mr. Thornton says he never hooked up with Amber Heard.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber and her people claim in March, 2015 Johnny accidentally cut his fingertip off in the middle of an argument with Amber ... and did his artful handiwork on the mirror after accusing her of cheating with Billy Bob when they co-starred in the flick, "London Fields," which was set to be released in 2015.

Billy Bob tells us the cheating allegation is ridiculous ... "completely false."

Thornton says he never socialized with Amber off set, other than a cast dinner. Even on the set, he says he didn't hang with her ... he was mostly around members of the crew. He adds he didn't even have a friendship with the actress ... it was all professional, on the set, and that was it.

As for Johnny, even though they were on the same set, Billy Bob says they had no interaction ... did not even speak.

Billy Bob's been married to wife Connie Angland since 2014. He says he's talked to Connie about the story and assured her it was Johnny's fantasy.


The Kardashians The Game's Only 1 for 3 With Us

8/16/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-the-game-kardashians-tmz-instagramThe Kardashians say The Game's lying when he boasted he slept with 3 of them on his track, "Sauce" ... he's wrong about at least 2.

Sources close to the Kardashians tell us you can count out Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris ... none of them had sex with Game.

The sources acknowledge Kim dated Game back in the day ... so that one's on the table for discussion, but that's it.

Khloe and Game have been pals for years, but the Kardashian sources are adamant ... strictly platonic.

That said, there's an interesting nugget. Game reached out to Kanye to get his blessing for the song, and Kanye said he didn't have a dog in the fight. Interesting ... Game didn't call Kim.

But ... we know Game sticks by his story. He nailed 3 of them.


Amber Heard No-Show for Depo In Johnny Depp Case

8/12/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811-amber-heard-tmzWhat do Amber Heard and Tyga have in common? They both violated court orders to testify under oath in L.A. and both are outside the borders of the USofA.

Sources tell us ... Amber is still ensconced in London, even though she's been ordered to appear for her deposition in her domestic violence/divorce case Friday at 10 AM.

The consequences could be severe. Johnny Depp's lawyers have already asked the judge to prohibit her from testifying in next week's trial because she refused to go in the depo room last weekend and testify. Depp's lawyer, Laura Wasser, says Amber was crying and screaming in an adjoining room, refusing to sit and testify. The judge could also just dismiss the domestic violence case.

Heard faces some tough questions ... among them -- why she thinks cops and apartment staff never saw injuries to her face.

We know both sides have been trying to settle the case, but money is the sticking point.


Tyrese Sorry, Rock ... I'm Team Vin Diesel

8/11/2016 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811-tyrese-vin-instagram-01Vin Diesel just scored an incredibly powerful ally in his war with The Rock ... Tyrese

Vin's "Fast 8" co-star just made it clear ... it's Vin who is the driving force behind the franchise, and people like Rock need to respect that.

Tyrese posted a pic with the caption, "I've always said that if ONLY people knew how hard you work to protect this franchise and characters, minds would be blown," adding, "I'm so f****** proud to call you my family and my brother."

And then the hammer ... "if no one else will jump out there and stand up I will."

Vin also got vague support from fellow 'Furious' co-star Ludacris, who just posted a pic of the cast ... sans Rock.

War still raging.
