French Montana & Ashley Graham All Smiles After Dinner Date

6/9/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

French Montana and Ashley Graham left a lot to the imagination when they walked out of dinner in NYC Wednesday night.

We saw the rapper and S.I. cover girl leaving Philippe Chow ... with a crew, so we're guessing it wasn't a romantic date, and probably just biz. Plus, Ashley's married.

Check out the video ... our photog tried to get some details out of them, but they're playing it coy. Best guess -- look for Ashley's bod in a French music vid soon.

Amber Heard 'Homophobic' 'Misogynistic' Cop ... a Gay Woman

6/9/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0608-beverly-leonard-facebook-05Amber Heard's ex-girlfriend, who just claimed Amber's 2009 arrest for domestic violence was bogus because the cop was a homophobe with a hint of misogyny ... couldn't be further off the mark, because the officer is an openly gay woman who also contributed money to a domestic violence organization.

Amber's ex-domestic partner, Tasya van Ree, minimized their altercation at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, saying it was "misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a powerful position." She's referring to the cops who arrested Amber for allegedly grabbing and hitting Tasya.

Officer Beverly Leonard was the actual arresting officer. She proudly posted pics of herself and her partner a few years back. She's also posted pics of herself at Pride weekend.

Leonard also supported an organization in Seattle that helps women who were victims of domestic violence.

A source close to Beverly says the now-retired officer is indignant ... saying the arrest had nothing to do with homophobia ... she was arrested for breaking the law.

Although Tasya claims the incident was minor, police documents show there was actual property damage ... Tasya's pendant was broken during the scuffle, and the documents also show Tasya was extremely upset with Amber for the alleged attack ... so claim the responding cops.

6/6/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

George Foreman says the legendarily nasty public feud between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier was actually friendly behind closed doors ... telling TMZ Sports the two men secretly loved each other.

The war between Ali and Frazier is well-known -- Ali called him names like "gorilla" and "Uncle Tom" -- which reportedly wounded Frazier until his death in 2011.

In fact, Frazier famously expressed his distaste for Ali in a 1990 interview -- "I hated Ali. God might not like me talking that way, but I hated that man. First he made me a white man, then he made me a n****r.” 

"How would you like it if your kids came home from school crying because everyone was calling their daddy a gorilla?"

But when Foreman -- who called Ali his "best friend" -- joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs tonight on FS1) ... we asked if Ali privately regretted taking things so far with his old foe. 

Check out the clip ... Foreman says he was tight with both men and knows they all had love for each other. 

"Whatever names we were called, they were all taken as a joke." 

**Check out the entire interview on "TMZ Sports" tonight at 9 PM PT, 12 ET on FS1**

"I was letting [Govan] know NOT even the kids will save u. She thinks she can [leverage] me and the kids, she uses the kids to fight her battles."

Gilbert says he believes Govan leaked the tape -- but says he does not plan to take any sort of legal action over it.

Taylor Swift Breakup Calvin Harris Was Just Done ... With the Hollywood Thing

6/2/2016 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602_calvin_harris_taylor_swift_tmzupdate_graphic_red_bar

3:50 PM PT -- Calvin just tweeted, "The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect." It's a nice sentiment.

She's still gonna write a song about him.

update_grey_gray_bar

Taylor Swift is all about Hollywood and Calvin Harris just wasn't feeling it, and that's why they broke up ... TMZ has learned.Sources close to the exes tell us Calvin is all about his music, working out and keeping a low profile. When he started dating Taylor 15 months ago they were keeping things private and not doing public events together ... so, he was cool with the relationship.

We're told once they started doing award shows, parties and red carpets ... Calvin grew more and more uncomfortable. There was no big blowup with Taylor -- we're told Calvin was just honest about his dislike for the Hollywood spotlight.

His goal now is to get back to as low-key a lifestyle as possible, while still doing live shows and recording new music.

As for reports he was intimidated by Taylor's success -- a source close to Calvin calls that "laughable," since he's one of the most successful DJs in the game.

Bottom line, the relationship just ran its course, or as one source put it ... "fizzled." 

Johnny Depp Boozing, Not Fighting At Danish Bar

Exclusive Details

0602_johnny_depp_bodyguard_launch_3Johnny Depp is partying overseas like a guy with no concerns -- such as a divorce from Amber Heard or domestic violence allegations.

Johnny and his Hollywood Vampires roadies hit up the Under Masken in Denmark Wednesday night where we're told Johnny was drinking and chatting up bar staff until 4 AM.

Bartender Hartvig Hansen tells TMZ ... the reports Johnny got into a fight with a bodyguard are not true. He says the actor knocked back 3 vodka tonics, with limes -- and a bottle of champagne was passed around.

0602-johnny-depp-hartvig-facebookThe Daily Mail got photos of Johnny outside the bar with his entourage. Some people thought it looked like he took a swing at one of his bodyguards, but Hartvig says the pic is deceiving -- Johnny really just has his arm around a chick while he's talking to the guys.

The photos could still be a bad look for Johnny, since Amber's claiming alcohol and drugs fueled the alleged assaults.
