6/9/2014 11:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn DatingWhere there's smoke, there's a brand new celeb couple -- Aaron Rodgers and "Newsroom" star Olivia Munn ... who kissed each other in public this weekend, proving the dating rumors are apparently TRUE. 

The Green Bay Packers quarterback was cuddling up with Munn -- who's been on the cover of everything from Maxim to Shape and even Playboy -- on the L.A. set of Munn's HBO show. 

There have been rumors about the two hookin' up for months -- but they've been pretty private with their relationship ... until now.

Darren Sharper

Surveillance Footage

Poses Problems for Prosecutors

Exclusive Details

0214-tmz-darren-sharperSurveillance video has surfaced in the Darren Sharper rape investigation that could blow a huge hole in the case for Arizona prosecutors -- and it's all because of what the footage DOESN'T show ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to the police report ... Sharper's accusers claim they partied with the NFL star at a bar called The Mint for roughly 10 to 15 minutes in the hours before he allegedly drugged and raped the 2 women.

Problem is, multiple sources tell TMZ Sports ... Sharper is nowhere to be seen in security footage taken from The Mint on the night of the alleged attacks.

In addition ... multiple staff members also told cops they never saw Sharper inside their bar that night.

Clearly, this presents a big problem for prosecutors because it could undermine the accusers' credibility.

For his part, Sharper denies any wrongdoing ... not just in AZ, but in all 4 states where he's been accused of raping women.

Ex-Packers QB Seneca Wallace

Check Out My Japanese Penis

... Cookie!

Seneca Wallace went to Japan ... and all he got was this weird black penis cookie.

The former Green Bay Packers QB -- along with other NFL stars -- went to Asia recently to visit U.S. troops stationed abroad. But when the guys stopped in the Land of the Rising Sun, they stumbled upon an interesting cultural artifact ... baby penis cookie (chocolate flavored).

We ran the cookie box by our in-house Japanese expert (Yori our camera guy) ... who tells us the Japanese word at the top of the packaging translates loosely to "weiner."

Seneca tells TMZ Sports he wasn't offended by the black penis cookie ... partially because "there was a vanilla flavor with a white baby on the cover."

Japanese desserts -- extremely weird ... but not overly racist!

I've Learned My Lesson on Making Bets

EXCLUSIVE

020114_aaron_rodgers_launch
Bad news for anyone hoping to make a bet with a guy who doesn't pay up ... 'cause Aaron Rodgers says his days of making friendly wagers on football games are officially OVER.

The Green Bay Packers QB was leaving Benjamin Steak House in NYC (he likes his steak "medium" btw) ... when we asked him if was planning to take any "friendly" action on the Super Bowl.

You know ... like the jersey bet he made with the guys from Boyz II Men last season (Aaron lost the best but refused to wear a 49ers jersey, as he had agreed to do ... cluck cluck cluck).

But last night, Aaron shut down the idea of making any more bets on football EVER AGAIN.

As for Boyz II Men, the guys told us they forgive Rodgers for bailing on the bet ... but they will never forget.

Packers superstar Clay Matthews just got the Jermichael Finley stamp of approval ... 'cause the tight end tells us Clay's decision to buy real estate in Bieber's neighborhood is a "GREAT MOVE."

We broke the story ... Clay recently purchased a plot of land in The Oaks in Calabasas -- a private community where Justin Bieber has been raising hell for the past few years.

But Clay's Green Bay teammate tells TMZ Sports he's PUMPED for Matthews -- "If he's trying to party, it's a great move!"

Unfortunately for Clay, Bieber might be moving out verrrry soon -- so, if he wants to rock out with JB, he better move fast!

NFL Star Clay Matthews

I'm Moving Into Justin Bieber's Hood

EXCLUSIVE

0128-clay-matthews-calabasas-oaks-splashGreen Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is thiiiiis close to having Justin Bieber as a neighbor ... 'cause he bought land in Bieb's Calabasas community -- but the singer could be OUT by the time Clay's home gets built.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Matthews recently dropped $2.6 million on a plot of undeveloped land in The Oaks ... a gated community littered with huge stars like Bieber, Travis Barker, Keyshawn Johnson, Nikki Sixx and (coming soon) Kourtney Kardashian.

Matthews -- who signed a $66 million contract extension last year -- is planning to build his dream home on the property ... but we're told construction has not started yet.

And with Justin Bieber telling people he's planning to leave The Oaks, it's very possible Calabasas could be Bieber-free by the time Clay is ready to move in.

And get this ... Clay scored a huge deal on the property -- it was originally on the market for $4.4 mil. We're not sure if the drastic price cut is due to the fact it's located near Bieber's home, but it's very possible Bieb was a factor.

Fun Fact -- Clay is very familiar with the Calabasas area .... he went to high school just a few miles away and played his college ball at USC.

'Shark Tank' Star

Helps Shred Packers

With Graterhead Company

EXCLUSIVE

1106-bears-grater-heads-APIt's the new craze sweeping the Cheesehead-hating anti-Packers universe -- a Graterhead -- and TMZ has learned, it's got "Shark Tank" star Daymond John's fingerprints all over it.

The Graterheads made their big debut during Monday night's game between longtime rivals the Packers and the Bears -- and the Graterhead creator tells us, it's been two years in the making.

CEO & Founder of Graterhead Jeran Dahlquist says he hatched his plan to create the grater-shaped hat back in 2011 -- and Shark Tanker Daymond John has been instrumental in the product's launch.

1106-packers-cheese-heads-getty
Daymond's rep says the businessman hasn't made a financial investment yet -- he's still weighing his options -- but he believes in the product, and has been coaching the company during its infant stages.

If the company shapes up like he thinks it will, we're told Daymond will be investing a sizable sum.

And that might happen sooner rather than later -- Dahlquist tells us the Graterheads are blowing up. Within minutes of being featured on the game's broadcast, Dahlquist says his website received tens of thousands of hits, and averaged a sale once every 3 seconds.

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley says he's finally been transferred out of the ICU -- and was able to walk today -- after badly injuring his spinal cord during Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Finley -- who was removed from the field on a stretcher yesterday -- tweeted moments ago ... "I'm happy to report that I have been transferred out of the intensive care unit and that I have full feeling in my arms and legs."

He added, "As importantly, I was able 2 walk to & from the shower today, which was badly needed after yesterday's victory!"

"Thank u again 4 the support, and Go Packers!"

Finley was having a helluva game until he took a shot to the head while trying to catch a pass over the middle. Finley had already suffered a concussion earlier in the season and his son asked him to stop playing football.

Colin Kaepernick

I'M NO AARON RODGERS

QB Makes Bet, Promises to Keep It

breaking news



SF 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick just made a BET with Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson -- whoever loses when they face off this weekend has to shave an eyebrow.

The wager was captured on video in a commercial for EA Sports -- they even shook hands -- and Colin warned Wilson, "Hope you don't like your eyebrow."

It'll be interesting to see if the losing QB actually lives up to the bet ... unlike Green Bay Packers QB/chicken enthusiast Aaron Rodgers ... who still hasn't paid up after losing a bet to Boyz II Men last season.

Just a warning to Colin and Russell -- don't let your mouths write checks your eyebrows can't cash ... you'll never live it down.

Right Aaron?

Ryan Braun (cluck) Lied

To My (cluck) Face! (cluck)

breaking news

0726-aaron-rodgers-ryan-braun-gettyAaron Rodgers -- GB Packers quarterback and chronic bet reneger -- is blaming disgraced MLB player Ryan Braun for letting his mouth write a check his ass couldn't cash.

As you know by now ... back in February, Rodgers aggressively defended his friend Ryan Braun against allegations the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was using PEDS ... and was so confident, he "bet" his 2013 NFL salary with a random person on Twitter.

Obviously, Rodgers was wrong and lost the bet (he'll never pay up, BTW) -- and now he's throwing Braun under the bus ... telling reporters he was merely "backing up a friend."

Rodgers says he was "shocked" when Braun admitted to cheating -- saying, "[Braun] looked me in the eye ... it didn't feel great being lied to like that."

You know what else doesn't feel great, Aaron? When you enter into a wager with someone and then DON'T PAY UP!!!!

Aaron Rodgers

LOSES Bet

Probably Won't Pay Up ... Again

Breaking Bets

0723_rodgers_braun_gettyAaron Rodgers -- NFL star and habitual bet weaseler-outer -- has LOST another major wager after famously betting his salary that Ryan Braun was PED-free ... but he probably won't pay up, 'cause that would be wayyyyyy out of character.

You may remember back in February, the Green Bay QB went to Twitter to defend his friend Braun against widespread allegations the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder was juicing.

One fan challenged Rodgers, saying, “you really believe he (Braun) didn’t you (sic) PED’s???”
And Rodgers responded: “ya, I’d put my salary next year on it.”

Well, now that Braun's basically copped to doping ... Rodgers is officially a LOSER ... and should have to pay the guy his 2013 salary -- $4.5 MILLION.

But as we all know, Rodgers has a history of not paying off his bets -- starting with the wager he made with Boyz II Men back in 2012 ... that the Pack would beat the 9ers in the season opener.

The Pack lost that game ... and Rodgers was supposed to wear a 49ers jersey. But he chickened out ... cause he's a great big, feathery CHICKEN.

So, just to recap .... Aaron Rodgers is 0 for 2 when it comes to paying up ... or to put it in language he would understand, "cluck cluck cluck cluck."

HITS THE CLUBS

... Still a Sore Loser

071013_aaron_rogers_launchGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hit up the Hollywood club scene last night ... rollin' into Bootsy Bellows on the Sunset Strip ... but it's clear, he's still bitter over the infamous 2012 jersey bet.

Let us refresh your memory -- right at the beginning of the '12 season, Rodgers made a friendly wager with one of the guys from Boyz II Men ... that if the Packers lost to the 49ers, he'd have to wear a SF jersey.

The Pack lost -- and Rodgers TOTALLY WEASELED OUT OF THE BET LIKE A CHUMP!!!!

Anyway, we called him out on the b*tch move for months ... and when we ran into him in L.A. last night, it was clear ... dude still holds a grudge.

Whatever, we're still taking him #1 in our fantasy draft.

couldn't believe it -- that Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers called his iconic moustache the GREATEST OF ALL TIME ... because there's one other actor who gives Sam's whiskers a run for their money.

Sam was out in Malibu yesterday when we told him the story -- that Aaron Rodgers put Sam Elliott's facial fuzz at the top of his list for all-time greatest 'staches ... during an interview with Jim Rome.

Sam was dumbfounded, telling TMZ, "NO WAY! You're bullsh*tting me."

As for who Sam thinks might also be a contender in Hollywood's best moustache contest -- you gotta watch the clip.

And speaking of contenders -- Sam says the last time he ever had to shave his lip warmer was for a movie called "The Contender" in 2000. AND LET IT NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.
