Sylvester Stallone Ex-Wife Brigitte Nielsen Sexual Assault Story is a Lie

11/20/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone's ex-wife, Brigitte Nielsen, says there is no way Stallone could have sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Las Vegas because she was with him the entire time.

The Daily Mail posted a story that the 16-year-old met Stallone in 1986 during the filming of "Over the Top" and he invited the girl to his hotel room at the Vegas Hilton where he allegedly forced her to have oral sex with him as his bodyguard raped her.

Nielsen tells TMZ, "During the summer of 1986 we were newlyweds. I was inseparable with Sylvester when 'Over the Top' was being shot in Las Vegas. The story claims that at approximately 8:30 in the evening during the shoot of the movie the person claims she was in our suite at the Hilton Hotel."

Nielsen goes on to say, "This incident did not occur. Most of the day, I would watch him film, then we'd have dinner and go to our room. No other person was in the room with him, but me."

The Daily Mail post says the girl was introduced to Stallone by his "Over the Top" co-star, David Mendenhall. Mendenhall tells TMZ, "I was shocked when I read the Daily Mail article. It's completely false that I introduced a 16-year-old female stranger to Mr. Stallone near an elevator in the Hilton, or anywhere else for that matter."

He goes on ... "The only people I introduced to Mr. Stallone were my relatives who visited me on the set."

As for Nielsen, we're told she and Stallone haven't spoken in nearly 30 years. Nevertheless, she says, "I can say for certain that it is impossible for this incident to have occurred," adding, "It's unbelievable that Sylvester and his family have to suffer through this over something that never happened."

The Daily Mail post includes what looks like a police report filed by the 16-year-old. Vegas police have no record of the report. According to the story, the girl decided she did not want the case prosecuted so Vegas police dropped it.

Tyrese Big Win in Court Judge Allows 50/50 Custody of Daughter

11/17/2017 3:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese just scored a big victory in court after a judge denied his ex's request for a permanent restraining order which would have severely restricted the actor's access to his daughter, Shayla.

The judge ruled Tyrese and Norma Gibson will get 50/50 joint custody beginning in January. Until then, we're told both sides have worked out a visitation schedule that will allow Tyrese to see Shayla over the holidays.

After court, he didn't have much to say about the ruling ... but made it clear he will eventually.

As we reported ... Norma claimed Tyrese physically abused the 10-year-old, claiming he beat her 12 to 16 times. Tyrese says he only struck her once on the bottom, and that Norma is simply vengeful.

Over the course of the 3-week court battle, Tyrese has posted multiple videos chronicling his own personal turmoil.

Tyrese had an online meltdown that he blamed on a Rx drug he was taking for depression.

He also claimed Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million to dig himself out of a financial hole, but that turned out to be false.

Nonetheless ... the restraining order is now history, opening the door to a renewed relationship between father and daughter.

Tyrese Gibson Not Sounding Optimistic on D-Day In Court Battle with Ex-Wife

11/17/2017 11:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese Gibson will finally find out today if the restraining order that's keeping him from his daughter will be lifted -- but on his way into court Friday he didn't sound horribly optimistic.

The operative words he used as he arrived at court ... "sacrificial lamb" ... and it was clear he thinks that's what he's going to be when the judge rules. He also went off about the medication he was prescribed ... which he blames for his recent emotional outbursts on social media.

As for what's happening in court ... the judge has dropped the restraining order keeping Tyrese away from his ex-wife, Norma Gibson. But what matters most to him is whether he gets to see his daughter, Shayla.

Stay tuned for that ruling ... 

Amber Heard to Elon Musk You Really Love Me?

11/16/2017 4:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Heard and Elon Musk are back together ... for one meal, at least -- and the timing of the reunion is pretty conspicuous.

The exes broke bread Thursday morning at a Sherman Oaks restaurant where, interestingly, they chose to sit right next to each other -- not across from each other. It's the first time they've been seen together since announcing their breakup back in August.

No obvious signs of PDA, so it could be totally copacetic. However, the sit-down comes the day after Elon revealed to Rolling Stone how heartbroken he was about Amber. He said, "I was really in love, and it hurt bad."

He added, "If I'm not in love, if I'm not with a long-term companion, I cannot be happy."

Not the sexiest mating call we've ever heard, but to each his/her own.

BTW, Elon left in a Tesla, naturally, while gripping a copy of GQ Australia ... with Amber on the cover.

Keegan-Michael Key Divorce Finalized Shelling Out TON$

11/16/2017 10:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key is officially a single man ... but it's gonna cost him boatloads of cash.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Keegan's gonna have to shell out $34k per month in spousal support to Cynthia Blaise and he'll have to kick in an additional 21% of his gross income on anything he earns above $2.153 million a year, but she's capped out at $700k per year.

But it doesn't end there. Keegan also cut her a check for $655k to even out the division of assets. She also gets to keep a timeshare in Mexico and her Subaru Crosstrek.

It's not all bad news for the former "Key & Peele" star. He gets to keep his Tesla and several bank accounts. And even though he's gotta shell out a ton of cash, he doesn't seem the least bit worried ... seeing as he appears to already be engaged. 

TMZ broke the story ... the "Friends from College" star filed for divorce in January of 2015. They had no children.

Shaq & Shaunie O'Neal Happy Sweet 16th, Mimi ... Here's a $1M Bday Party!

11/12/2017 1:16 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Shaq and his ex-wife Shaunie O'Neal spared no expense for their daughter's sweet 16 ... and by expense, we mean they dropped almost a mil for the kid.

The O'Neals threw Amirah -- aka Mimi -- an EPIC 16th birthday party Saturday night in L.A. that was fit for royalty -- 'cause the proud parents spent nearly a million dollars on the whole shebang. Yep, you read that right ... $1,000,000. 

Sources close to the family tell TMZ Sports that Shaq and Shaunie rented out out the entire rooftop area of the W Hotel in Hollywood, and they gifted Mimi a brand new Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. 

Oh, and they also booked YG to perform ... who we're told did 8 songs, including his hits "Toot It And Boot It" and "Why You Always Hatin?"

From the looks of the party, we'd say it was money well spent. Especially if you were lucky enough to end up at Mimi's.

Robert Herjavec Sues Ex-GF She's Extorting Me Over False Sexual Assault Claims

11/8/2017 11:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Shark Tank" star Robert Herjavec says an ex-girlfriend of his is trying to exploit the Harvey Weinstein/Hollywood sexual harassment scandal by extorting him for millions of dollars over what he says are false claims of sexual assault.

Herjavec has sued Danielle Vasinova, whom he dated from 2013 to 2015. He says when he ended the relationship she became a woman scorned and threatened to go public with false claims he gave her herpes and repeatedly sexually assaulted her. 

Herjavec says at one point she demanded $20 million in return for her silence, and he told her to kick rocks. He says at one point she reduced her demand to $5 million which he squarely rejected.

He also says she sold a story to the National Enquirer about his romp with her at a sex fantasy club. Herjavec says in Sept., 2014, Vasinova invited him to the sex club, telling him it was "a legitimate, fantasy experience ... innocent fun." He went, and consented to be strapped to a table and blindfolded, after which he was tickled with a feather. 

Herjavec says unbeknownst to him, Vasinova took pictures of him while he was blindfolded, which she used in her extortion attempt. 

Herjavec says after her extortion attempt failed he didn't hear from her for a while, until Monday, when he got a letter from her attorney saying Vasinova was threatening to reignite her assault claims. The letter says, "she bears full awareness that the problems plaguing Hollywood are far bigger than she is, and appreciates fully that her willingness to come forward now will not only be cathartic for her, but will go far in serving the interests of other women and men who have not yet found their voices."

According to the lawsuit, the letter goes on to suggest an "informal resolution" -- which Herjavec interprets as renewed extortion.

The suit isn't about money -- Herjavec is asking for $1 and an order prohibiting her from continuing her alleged extortion attempts.  

Pamela Bach David Can't Cut Me Off 55-Year-Old Actresses Can't Find Work

11/6/2017 7:44 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Hasselhoff's ex-wife has clapped back at his claim she needs to get a job ... she says it's tough when you're a 55-year-old actress.

Pamela Bach has just responded to David's petition to cut her off from spousal support. He's currently paying her $10k a month but claims she's perfectly capable of finding work and supporting herself.

Pamela says in new legal docs ... she's made "good faith and reasonable efforts" to land work as an actress but, given her age, "the current market for actresses" and the time she's been a homemaker ... it's been next to impossible.

She says she did find some work ... notably on "Celebrity Big Brother," but that's it.

Pamela also says it's a travesty to cut her off, claiming David makes around $1 million a year. She says she spent her prime earning years taking care of their home and raising their 2 daughters so David could pursue his career.

In the docs, she adds David never forked over a $1 million payment to balance their separation of assets when they divorced. She says he got a boat, jetskis, 2 trusts with a lot of assets and their home -- while essentially all she got was $325,000 out of the house.

Laurence Fishburne Files for Divorce

11/3/2017 5:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Black-ish" star Laurence Fishburne has filed to end his marriage to Gina Torres ... TMZ has learned.

The couple split a year ago but took no action to pull the plug on the marriage until Thursday.

When they announced the split in September, Gina said, "With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year," adding, "There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected."

Judging from the statement, it would seem they spent the last year dividing assets. Celebrities often lay the groundwork before filing for divorce, so the case isn't front and center in the legal system for very long.

The couple has one daughter, 10-year-old Delilah.

Tamar Braxton Vince Doesn't Want Divorce ... Has a Plan to Reconcile

EXCLUSIVE

Tamar Braxton will not be divorcing Vincent Herbert, after all, IF he gets his way ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to Vince tell us he's hoping he and Tamar can work things out and save their marriage. It'll be an uphill battle, for sure ... remember she's the one who filed for divorce last week.

We're told Vince is willing to do everything in his power to change her mind, including counseling to discussing their marriage and other issues stemming from her firing from "The Real."

Vince has been telling friends he doesn't want to discuss custody arrangements for their son -- as she requested -- because he's confident things will work out.

Sources say he's in a good place career-wise, working on Remy Ma's management, which makes him think he can sort out his marriage too.
