J Lo and Marc Anthony A Kiss is Not Always Just a Kiss (UPDATE)

11/18/2016 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar8:00 AM PT -- Sources connected with the exes -- who were there last night -- tell us "the kiss" was peer pressure fueled. We're told Marc and Jennifer only did it because the crowd was chanting "beso," and it would've been awkward if they didn't.

Nothing romantic, we're told. Purely crowd-pleasing.update_grey_gray_barMarc Anthony planted one on ex-wife Jennifer Lopez Thursday night at the Latin Grammys.

Marc won Person of the Year at the Vegas shindig. Before he was honored J Lo came out and the 2 performed their duet, "Olvidame y Pega la Vuelta."

Let's not forget he's remarried -- but during his speech, in what seems to have been damage control, Marc expressed his love for J Lo ... as a sister! (For non-Spanish speakers it starts at 17 seconds).

Take a look Jennifer's expression.

Marc's now posting multiple shots of him planting one on his bros last night. Seems like he's trying to make a point about casually kissing lots of people.

Tell it to the missus, Marc.

11/14/2016 6:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1114-michael-phelps-and-wife-diplo-xs-sub-danny-mahoney-03The couple that does Vegas together ... 

Michael Phelps and his (sorta) new bride, Nicole Johnson, hit Sin City together this weekend for the first time as man and wife (as far as we know) ... and partied their faces off with Diplo

1114-michael-phelps-and-wife-diplo-xs-sub-danny-mahoney-01The Phelps' got behind the DJ booth at XS Nightclub at the Encore ... and helped the famous DJ celebrate his 38th birthday while the club went crazy. 

Interesting note ... neither Michael nor Nicole were pictured with an alcoholic beverage in their hands. As you probably know, Phelps has battled issues with booze over the years but has said he hasn't sworn it off completely. 

Lindsay Lohan Roped Into Vegas Hotel Battery Case

11/14/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1111-lindsay-lohan-TMZ-01Lindsay Lohan got dragged into a brutal mess allegedly involving 2 Russians and a major ass whooping in one of the most outlandish Las Vegas tales we've ever heard.

A 24-year-old man told Vegas Metro cops ... 2 men came into his room at the Excalibur last month, took him in the bathroom and asked if he'd been talking smack on LiLo ... this according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

The man says he denied saying a peep about Lindsay, but the Russians beat him to a pulp anyway. That's his story and he's sticking to it. So, what's his connection to Lindsay?

The alleged victim tells us he met her at Coachella back in April. As for why 2 random Russian dudes tracked him down 6 months later in a different state -- he thinks they recognized him from Coachella.

For the record, Lindsay's camp says she doesn't know this guy from a hole in the ground, and cops say he refused to cooperate with their investigation. So, case closed.

Some things really should stay in Vegas.

Rich Gannon Raiders Should Stay In Oakland ... Vegas Move Is Whack

10/25/2016 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here's proof not everyone is down for the Raiders move to Sin City ... Rich Gannon --the last guy to quarterback the Silver & Black to the Super Bowl -- says the team needs to STAY PUT.

We got Gannon out in NYC and asked the former NFL MVP his thoughts about his old squad potentially moving out of Oakland and into the deserts of Nevada.

Gannon ain't a fan ... saying the team is just starting to come into its own, and the fans up in NorCal deserve the chance to watch a winner for a change.

He's not the only Ex-Raider balking at the move .... Ronnie Lott is putting together a group to try to keep the team in Oakland as well ... but owner Mark Davis seems super determined to relocate.

Check out the clip ... and maybe don't buy those David Copperfield tickets just yet.

Jeff Timmons 'Men of the Strip' is Back We're Coming for You, Channing!

EXCLUSIVE

1018-jeff-timmons-channing-tatum-getty-01Jeff Timmons will challenge Channing Tatum for the title ... hottest male strippers in Sin City.

We're told Jeff locked down a deal to relaunch "Men of the Strip" in March ... which will become a TV show on a new network that encourages him to push the boundaries of stripping.

You'll recall ... "Men of the Strip" originally ran as a docusoap for E! back in 2014.

Jeff's place of residency will be the Stratosphere Hotel in Vegas, which is just up the road from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino ... where Channing's premiering "Magic Mike Live" at the very same time.

Jeff will host for 6 weeks, with various celeb guests.

We're guessing the ladies of Vegas won't mind the competition ... not at all.

Ice Cube RAIDER NATION FOR LIFE ... Even In Vegas??

10/23/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He's one of the biggest Raider fans on the planet -- but if the Silver & Black move straight outta Cali and into Las Vegas, is that a deal breaker for Ice Cube???

That's what we asked the rapper at LAX -- you know, since Raiders owner Mark Davis announced he's dead set on taking his team to Sin City in the next few years. 

Check out the clip ... seems there's only one way the Raiders could melt Cube's fandom.

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.

Presidential Debate Vegas Sex Industry Takes a Pounding

10/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
XXXCLUSIVE

1019-escorts-during-debate-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-02Vegas escorts are moaning alright, but for the wrong reason ... they say the 3rd presidential debate has sucked the sexual drive out of Sin City.

Multiple escort agency owners tell us business has been alarmingly slow over the last 2 days.

The owners and escorts say ... the influx of people for the Trump/Clinton showdown is not the usual crowd coming to Vegas for a good time.

As for why business is down ... the owners have several theories. One ... that everyone's depressed about the way the election has gone, and the crowd isn't up for a fun time.

Another owner had this theory ... the election has been filled with "gotcha" moments, and people are afraid of getting busted.

There is a beneficiary in all this misery. Dennis Hof, the guy who runs the Bunny Ranch 45 minutes outside of Vegas, says his business is booming. The Ranch -- a legal brothel where Lamar Odom ODd and almost died a year ago -- is booked to capacity, and he's even running extra limos.

Donald Trump Taco Trucks Line Up ... Here's Your Wall!!!

Exclusive Video

Donald Trump got a taste of his proposed US-Mexico border wall Wednesday morning when food trucks lined up outside his Las Vegas hotel ... but it wasn't just tacos being served.

The trucks built a wall outside Trump International Hotel just off the strip and offered free grub to hundreds of protesters. 

There was quite a selection, including several different Asian fusion trucks and even a showing from the French via the French Food Therapy truck. 

The Culinary Union Local 226, an LV food union, organized and got permits. For those that weren't hungry, there was another mini wall to sign.

For the most part, it looked peaceful ... Jesse Jackson even made an appearance and let us know his protest grub of choice.

EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar

1:02 PM PT -- Ty's agent, Happy Walters, tells us Ty asked for and received permission from the team to miss the flight. 

update_grey_gray_barSacramento Kings star Ty Lawson was partying his face off with teammates at a Vegas club Thursday night before missing a team flight on Friday morning ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Lawson hit up Drai's nightclub along with Ben McLemore and Willie Cauley-Stein and boxer Adrien Broner ... and you can see in the video, they seemed to be having a great time. 

Problem is ... Lawson missed the team flight to Kentucky for an exhibition game the next day and Kings' honchos are reportedly demanding an explanation. 

For the record, Ben and Willie made the trip and had decent games. 

The Kings had said Lawson missed the game due to "personal reasons" -- unclear if the clubbing counts. 

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Lawson also missed a team shootaround in Vegas earlier in the week. 

We reached out to the Kings for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Adrien Broner Accused of Choking Waitress ... In Vegas Nightclub

10/17/2016 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

More trouble for Adrien Broner -- who was cited for misdemeanor battery at a Vegas nightclub for allegedly choking a waitress ... though the boxer adamantly denies any wrongdoing. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... cops were called to Drai's nightclub around 3:30 AM on Sunday when a female server complained that Broner put his hands around her neck and said, "Bitch, I will knock you out."

When cops arrived they spoke with the accuser and a witness who corroborated her story. Plus, we're told the incident was captured on video. 

Cops spoke with Broner -- who staunchly proclaimed his innocence -- but ultimately decided there was enough evidence to cite him for misdemeanor battery. 

Broner was NOT arrested -- he was simply handed a citation with a notice to appear in court at a later date.  

As for the accuser, we're told she did not require medical attention. 

This is just the latest in a strong of disturbing incidents involving the boxer ... who was arrested for allegedly beating up a guy at a bowling alley earlier this year. Those charges were later dropped

Broner also posted a bizarre string of messages on social media last week suggesting he was planning on killing himself. Fortunately, he didn't go through with it and Floyd Mayweather invited him to live with him to help him sort through his issues.
