Oprah for Prez 'NOprah' Gear on the Horizon ... But Only If She Runs

1/16/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's at least one person who really doesn't wanna see Oprah in the White House -- and he's aiming to make some cash on the anti-O movement if she runs in 2020.

An Arizona man applied for the rights to use "NOprah" earlier this month on shirts, jackets, shoes, pants and other garments ... presumably to sell.

The guy, who only wanted to be ID'd as Lewis, tells TMZ ... he filed for the "NOprah" trademark because he saw a swirl of opposition to a possible O run. He says enough already with celebs in the Oval.

Lewis says he's not sure if he wants to start selling the clothing now, or wait until the 'Oprah for Prez' thing is more of a reality. 

One last thing ... Lewis tells us he personally likes Oprah -- just not for President. 

Elvis Presley Are You Thirsty Tonight ... Historic Dixie Cup For Sale

1/16/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Someone's selling a crusty paper cup that might've once touched Elvis Presley's lips and there are people already willing to drop over $150 for it.

The cup's supposedly from The King's first concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1956. Elvis was only 21 at the time and played his first show there in April of that year. The cup was supposedly taken from him at his hotel by a woman named June who then kept it in a box with his autographed picture for decades.

If you're wondering whether it's authentic or not ... the nearly 62-year-old cup comes with a letter of authenticity and notebook full of supporting "research" ... which includes a few pictures of Elvis WITH the cup.

It's being sold on eBay and, as of late Monday, the high bid was $157. The seller is optimistic they'll get $1,000 for it though.

As we reported ... Dolores died Monday unexpectedly. Her bandmates sent out a message saying ... "We are devastated on the passing of our friend Dolores. She was an extraordinary talent and we feel very privileged to have been part of her life from 1989 when we started the Cranberries.

Wanna know what's worse than betting on the Steelers and the Saints Sunday??

Losing both bets to a giddy Nick Young ... and having to pay up with your whole team watching!!

That's exactly what happened to Draymond Green yesterday -- after the Warriors superstar went 0-for-2 betting football with Swaggy P on their way to Cleveland.

FYI, Dray's signed to a $82 million contract -- so we think he can spare the $1k. 

Minnesota Vikings Crazy Playoff Ending Screws With Gamblers

1/14/2018 5:59 PM PST
Breaking News

The wild ending to the Vikings/Saints playoff game cost a lot of people a lot of money ... and it all came down to that extra point play.

The spread before kickoff was 5.5 in favor of the Vikings -- meaning if you bet the Vikings, they had to win by at least 6 points for you to collect on your bet.

So when Stefon Diggs caught that insane last-second pass with time expiring to put Minnesota up by 5, Vikings betters thought the extra point was a gimme ... and would be money in the bank. 

Now the twist -- the players clearly thought the game was over, as both teams started to leave the field. But when officials explained the extra point play was mandatory, both teams returned ... but the Vikings apparently didn't wanna put salt in the wound ... so they took a knee instead of kicking the field goal for the extra point.

Final spread -- 5 points. Hope you bet on the Saints. 

BetOnline.ag -- one of the biggest betting websites -- tells us that the kneel on the extra point favored a majority of gamblers ... 'cause 63% of people on their site bet on the Saints getting 5.5 points.

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump's spreading his newfound wealth around ... hooking up members of his team with some fresh bling for the new year.

The 17-year-old rapper ordered 8 iced-out chains that say "Tha Lights Global" -- the name of his label -- with pendants in all different sizes ... from 10 to 30 carats. We're told they cost $350,000 overall.

Pump hit up Elliot Avianne of Avianne & Co Jewelers in NYC 2 months ago to have the chains made, but he tells us the "Gucci Gang" rapper still hasn't come to pick them up. It's also unclear who gets what piece.

As we reported last month ... Lil Pump's contract with Warner Bros. had him on a path to millionaire status soon, but he's reportedly had that contract voided and now is entertaining other offers.

Mark Wahlberg's giving away the $1.5 million he made for his reshoots on "All the Money in the World" ... after the outcry that he made more than Michelle Williams.

Mark's making a donation to Time's Up, and his agency WME -- which also represents Williams -- is donating $500,000 as well. Wahlberg says, "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the $1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams' name."

As we reported ... when producers asked Williams to do reshoots for the movie she quickly agreed, but Wahlberg demanded to be paid and his rep said, "He doesn't work for free." However, sources familiar with the actors' contracts told us Michelle's required her to do reshoots as part of her salary ... and Mark's didn't.  

Regardless, Wahlberg and his agency are now donating the $2 mil.

Mark Wahlberg and his brothers are trying to guard their very successful family burger biz by getting legal protection for their secret sauce. 

Wahlburgers restaurant has filed legal docs to corner the market on Wahl Sauce. For those who've taken a bite of a Wahlburger, the sauce is what separates it from other burgers ... kind of like a Big Mac. 

The chain not only wants to protect what's on the bun, it wants to market the sauce in bottles.

Wahlburgers is already in 14 states and Canada. Unclear if the sauce will only be sold inside their restaurants or your local market. Oh, oh, ohhhh ... the right sauce. (Sorry Donnie, couldn't resist!)

For his own sake, we hope he's right. Quavo's a huge Georgia sports guy -- and we're not sure if he can handle 2 soul-crushing L's in 1 week.

Breaking News

The NBA is slapping back at Rodney Hood ... hitting the Utah Jazz star with a hefty $35,000 fine for smacking a cell phone out of a fan's hand Wednesday night.

Hood was ejected after his 2nd technical foul during the 3rd quarter of the Jazz vs. Wizards game. When he was heading to the locker room, Hood unleashed his anger on the fan's phone.

It's not the first fan confrontation that has resulted in a big fine this season, but it is the biggest. Kyrie Irving was fined $25k for yelling profanity at a spectator.

In case you're wondering ... Hood's making $2.3 million this season, so it's just a drop in the bucket.

Harvey Weinstein Ex-Wife Claims He's Crying Poverty ... Can't Pay Child Support

1/12/2018 9:33 AM PST

Harvey Weinstein's low on cash flow, so he's telling his ex-wife he can't afford to pay child support for a year ... maybe more ... according to her, anyway.

Eve Chilton made the claim in docs submitted when she tried to get a one-time advance payment to cover $5 million in child support Weinstein still owes for their 3 daughters. The judge denied that request, citing Weinstein's track record of not missing any previous payments.

As we reported ... Chilton, who divorced Weinstein in 2004, was worried their daughters wouldn't get the money because Weinstein was using it to fight numerous lawsuits.

The timing's interesting here -- Weinstein just reached a divorce settlement this week with his most recent ex-wife, Georgina Chapman ... reportedly in the $15 to $20 million range.

He'll still have to make regular child support payments, as scheduled, to Chilton.
