KC Chiefs Trainer 'On Cloud 9' After Learning He Saved Gay NFL Player's Life

6/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the KC Chiefs trainer who helped save a closeted gay NFL player from killing himself, David Price, tells TMZ Sports he was "elated" to find out he had such a positive impact.

The player is ex-offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan -- who recently came out publicly on Outsports.com after keeping his sexuality a secret during his entire football career.

O'Callaghan -- who played for the Patriots and the Chiefs -- says he was in a dark place toward the end of his career and was on the verge of suicide ... until Price stepped in.

O'Callaghan says Price simply cared enough to talk to him and realized something was wrong -- and convinced him to get help from a team psychologist. That got the ball rolling for O'Callaghan who says he's now in a MUCH healthier mental state and loves life.

We spoke with Price who says he was unaware how important he was to O'Callaghan until he read the Outsports article this week ... but couldn't be more proud of his former player.

"I was just elated, I mean on Cloud 9 that I had that much impact on somebody's life in a positive way."

Price says helping O'Callaghan was a "no brainer" -- and he's confident other people in the league would have done the same thing.

EXCLUSIVE

Milan Christopher pulled a Kim Kardashian by going full frontal in the next Paper Magazine, and it begs the question ... how does he walk around naked without getting rug burn?

The openly gay ex-"Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star landed the spread for the mag, and we got the goods before they hit the paper. They're ... well, big.

Milan tells Paper ... "You know as a male music artist or man in general showing your male genitalia is so taboo in our culture -- but it's ok for Amber Rose, Kim Kardashian, or Rihanna to do it as females."

So, is he bigger than Kim? The black bar points to yes.

Donald Trump Sticky Situation For Walk of Fame Star

6/12/2017 2:05 PM PDT

President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was defaced with a slew of stickers during Sunday's Resist March.

Protesters covered Trump's oft-vandalized star with #resist stickers that target misogyny, transphobia, corruption, homophobia, xenophobia ... to name just a few.

The President's star is keeping cleanup crews busy. This will probably be the easiest repair job for them though. As we've reported ... the star's previously been obliterated with a pickax, had a mini-wall built around it and ... had a golden toilet placed on it.

That one takes the creative crown.

Aaron Carter I Won't Pack Heat at L.A. Pride ... Emotions Got Me

EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter regrets suggesting he'll not only pack heat at the L.A. Gay Pride Parade this weekend, but he'd shoot anyone who came for his fans.

Aaron told TMZ Thursday he's ready to fight terrorists with his own brand of terror ... a gun, which he's more than willing to use.

But later Friday he moonwalked his statement back, saying emotions got the best of him. 

Aaron will perform at the parade, which is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people. Security is super tight. 

Chromeo We Stand with L.A. Pride Refuse to Give in to Terror

EXCLUSIVE

No potential terrorist threat will stop Chromeo from headlining L.A. Pride this weekend, according to Dave 1 ... one half of the funk/pop/rock duo.

Dave told us, he and P-Thugg are determined to take the stage, and part of their inspiration comes from the national reaction to the mass shooting a year ago at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

He's aware cops in L.A. arrested a man last year with 3 assault rifles on his way to the parade -- but Dave says they're not thinking about that. They're focused on putting on a great show because events like Pride are more necessary than ever.

Bill Cosby Courted Disaster By Forcing Gay Issue in Sexual Assault Trial

6/9/2017 6:43 AM PDT

Bill Cosby arrived to the courthouse Friday with comedian Joe Torry by his side, oblivious to the fact he dodged a fatal bullet courtesy of his own lawyers.

Cosby's attorneys had filed legal docs asking the judge to allow them to introduce evidence accuser Andrea Constand was gay. He bizarrely wanted to show the jury she deceived him ... suggesting he would not have had sex with her if he knew she was gay.

The prosecution claimed it was "victim shaming" and also violates Pennsylvania law which prohibits the use of evidence involving an alleged victim's sexual past.

The judge denied the defense motion, and unless we're missing something, the admission could have nailed Cosby's coffin shut.

Andrea Constand told cops she had a boyfriend when she was 14 and had sexual contact with a man when she was in her late 20's. That said, if she wasn't into guys, the prosecution could have destroyed Cosby's argument she consented to sexual contact with the comedian.

Day 5 of the trial focuses on Cosby's own words, where he said in deposition he would give women quaaludes to dull their senses when it came to consent.

Aaron Carter doesn't want fans worrying about terrorism at his shows -- like his L.A. Pride gig this weekend -- and has a warning for anyone thinking about targeting him: He's a big 2nd Amendment guy.

Aaron will hit the stage Saturday in L.A., and he's well aware of increased security concerns all large scale events in the wake of the bombing at Ariana Grande's concert. He got emotional talking about recent attacks, and then got defiant.

As Aaron put it ... "I live in America. I'm allowed to have guns." He wasn't specific about when and where he's packing, but his message was clear -- don't tread on me. Or my fans.

Dave Bautista Homophobes Can 'Suck My Balls'

Breaking News

"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Dave Bautista says he's the "proud son of a lesbian" -- and invites anyone who has a problem with that to "suck my balls."

The ex-WWE superstar has a been a warrior for LGBTQ rights -- and really, equality all around (see his response to the LeBron James vandalism). And when a fan on Twitter thanked him for his support, Drax the Destroyer came with the best response ever. 

"Obviously no thnx necessary but I appreciate the acknowledgement. Proud son of a lesbian and anyone who has issue w/ that can suck my balls."

Bautista has talked about his mother before -- most memorably when Manny Pacquiao compared LGBTQ people to animals. 

"My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don't f**king take that sh*t," Dave told us last year ... "If anyone called my mother an animal I'd stick my foot in his ass."

President Trump Shows No Sign of Making June LGBTQ Month

6/2/2017 1:00 AM PDT


It's now June 2 ... so it looks like President Trump is passing on the recent tradition of declaring June the month America celebrates Pride.

Bill Clinton started the tradition of making June LGBT Pride month. He did that on June 1, 1999, but tradition was quickly broken when President Bush took office in 2001. During his 8-year tenure LGBT month was off the books.

President Obama resurrected the proclamation on June 1, 2009 and every June 1 thereafter, making the month LGBT Pride, designed to speak out against discrimination and fight for equal rights.

June 1, 2017 was a telling day ... would President Trump follow the lead of Obama and Clinton? The Prez said during the campaign he supported LBGTQ rights. But June 1st came and went, and so far ... no declaration.  

We called several White House officials to see what's up, but didn't get return calls.  

L.A. Rams 1st NFL Team to Sponsor Gay Pride Event

Breaking News

The L.A. Rams are breaking even more ground in the LGBTQ arena -- becoming the 1st NFL team ever to officially sponsor a gay pride event. 

The team has joined up with Venice Pride -- the organization behind the massive Venice Pride block party -- and has sponsored the blue lights in the letter "C" in the famous VENICE sign. 

Each letter in the sign will be lit up with a different color -- just like the rainbow LGBTQ pride flag. The event begins June 2.

A Rams spokesperson issued a statement saying the team is proud to "stand in alignment with the LGBT community that is such an important part of the fabric of Los Angeles."

"Inclusion has always been a valued part of our organization and we see this as a unique way to publicly celebrate the diversity that makes this community so special."

Of course, the Rams made history in 2014 when they drafted Michael Sam -- the first openly gay player to enter the NFL Draft.

NBA All-Star Game Back To Charlotte After Bathroom Bill Axed

5/24/2017 8:30 AM PDT
Breaking News

The NBA pulled the '17 All-Star Game from Charlotte 'cause of a controversial state law, but Wednesday said the '19 ASG is headed back to the city after the bill was repealed.

Here's the situation ... in July 2016, the league moved the game from Charlotte to New Orleans after HB2 -- a bill that forced people to use the bathroom that corresponded to their birth gender, and was widely seen as a discriminatory -- was not repealed.

At the time, Adam Silver said, "we do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2."

The caveat ... if the bill was repealed, the NBA would consider re-awarding Charlotte with the game.

Losing the game was a big deal. The state lost a lot of revenue from fans that would've flocked to N.C. to watch the league's best players ball.

In March, North Carolina state politicians voted to repeal HB2 ... opening the door for the game to go down in Charlotte.

Today, that's exactly what the commish did ... saying "while we understand the concerns of those who say the repeal of HB2 did not go far enough, we believe the recent legislation eliminates the most egregious aspects of the prior law."
