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

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

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!

10/24/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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

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

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

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.

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.

NBA's Ty Lawson Raged at Vegas Nightclub ... Before Missing Team Flight

10/17/2016 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


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

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.

Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman knows the score when it comes to battling the Backstreet Boys on the Vegas Strip ... and they're trailing big. 

We caught up with the singer at LAX and asked him if there's gonna be a battle now that one of the best-selling boy bands in history landed their own Vegas residency. Remember, the Boyz already have a hit show there ... which runs through 2018. 

So, is Shawn worried about a little comp? Check out the vid ... game clearly recognizes game.

1013-verne-troyer-steaks-01Verne Troyer is a small man with a huge appetite ... proven in stunning form by devouring a 32 oz steak. 

Verne feasted on a Tomahawk Long Bone rib-eye steak bigger than his own head, right down to the bone that's about as long as his whole body.

We're told he chowed down at The D casino hotel in Vegas -- where he got in a good arm workout afterward to burn off the meal.



Shia LaBeouf Love Don't Cost a Thing ... Neither Did My Vegas Wedding

10/11/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1010_shia-labeouf_wedding-composite-2Shia LaBeouf's surprise Vegas wedding Monday with Mia Goth was no free love affair -- but it only set the actor back a few hundred bones. 

Obviously, Shia's got the dough to spend wayyyy more ... but looks like he opted for the $700 Elvis Blue Hawaii package, which includes: 

- Elvis officiant (with 3 serenades)
- 1 hula dancer
- 6 rose bouquet for Mia, matching boutonniere for Shia
- 10 candid ceremony prints
- Courtesy round-trip limo service from any hotel on the strip or downtown

Not exactly the royal treatment -- especially for an A-lister -- but if you're in the market, the Viva Las Vegas chapel offers just about everything a la carte. For instance, the hula dancer's $100 ... or the pink caddy WITH fog machine will run ya $175.

Take your savings and invest in real estate -- just a tip.


Shia LaBeouf Hitched In Vegas By Elvis

10/10/2016 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Shia LaBeouf tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Mia Goth, in a Las Vegas ceremony that was NOT traditional ... TMZ has learned.

The couple got hitched at Viva Las Vegas, a chapel known for themed weddings. Some of the options include Elvis and Alice Cooper packages, or the more generic gangster and gladiator themes. 

We've learned they went with the Elvis and Hawaiian themes. Mia even hitched a ride with Elvis in a pink Cadillac to the ceremony, and from the sound of it, planning the wedding was a lot easier than the honeymoon...

They also offer traditional weddings, but no one would expect that from a guy who watches marathon sets of his own films ... for the sake of art.


Shia and Mia started dating in 2012, after meeting on the set of "Nymphomaniac: Volume II." They made headlines for a public fight in Germany in July of 2015. Goth was seen wearing an engagement ring back in March.
