Montel Williams Military Spends More On Viagra Than Trans Soldiers!!!

7/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Montel Williams is PISSED that Donald Trump wants to ban transgender Americans from serving in the military ... and says they're getting stiffed with his "too expensive" argument.

We got Montel, famously a Navy veteran, Wednesday in L.A. and he absolutely unloaded on the Prez for what he sees as blatant discrimination against able-bodied Americans who want to protect their country.

He's beyond intense, and one of the biggest reasons he's so fired up has to do with military spending on erectile dysfunction drugs. Montel dropped some eye-opening numbers on us as he called BS on Trump claiming trans medical expenses are too costly. 

You can tell he means this ... from the veins bulging out of his neck.

Exclusive Details

The couple that sings together, blings together ... if you're Offset and Cardi B.

TMZ has learned the Migos rapper dropped 6 bands on his girl's new chain, which is blanketed in diamonds ... right down to the digits.

We're told Cardi was a huge fan of Offset's recently purchased pieces, including his $100k raindrop pendant, so about a month ago they hit up his guys at Avianne & Co Jewelers in NYC.

Cardi wanted something original so she handled the design and had him replicate her ILY hand gesture. Dip the whole thing in 20 karats of diamonds, plus 15 more karats on the chain and BAM!

Nice icy teamwork.


Danny Tartabull Locked Up On Deadbeat Dad Charges

7/26/2017 10:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Danny Tartabull has finally been captured -- more than 5 years after a warrant was issued for the ex-MLB star's arrest on deadbeat dad charges ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Oh, and the reason he was caught? DUMBASSERY. 

Quick backstory: Officials say the former NY Yankees star -- who played in the MLB from '84 to '97 -- owes more than $275k in unpaid child support stemming back to a 2011 deadbeat dad conviction.

He violated his probation in 2012 and was ordered to surrender and serve 180 days in jail but never turned himself in. A warrant was issued. 

54-year-old Tartabull has basically been under the radar ever since ... until July 24, when he called police himself to report that his car had been broken into near his apartment in Agoura, CA.

When cops arrived, they ran Tartabull's name through the system and noticed the active warrant -- and immediately arrested him.

He was taken to a nearby station where he was booked in connection with the deadbeat dad case and has been locked up ever since. 

Tartabull is set to face a judge some time Wednesday. 

Fun Fact: Tartabull was the AL's highest paid player in 1992 after signing a 5 year, $27 million deal.10:32 AM PT -- Tartabull's attorney, Jacob Glucksman, tells TMZ Sports his legal team is working to obtain Danny's release from custody and settle this matter.

Glucksman says Danny has a good relationship with both of his adult children.

Julio Jones Loses $150k Earring In Lake ... Hires Dive Team

7/26/2017 9:11 AM PDT
Breaking News

Julio Jones has a big problem -- he lost a $150,000 diamond earring during a jet ski ride at Lake Lanier this week ... so he's hired a full DIVE TEAM to hunt it down!!

The ATL Falcons wide receiver told WXIA-TV he noticed he lost the earring after he fell off the ski -- but didn't want to just walk away without making a real, solid effort to find it.

The dive team jumped in the water on Tuesday evening -- scouring the 65-foot deep water. So far, no luck.

Jones seems shockingly calm about the whole thing ... probably because he's in the middle of a $71 million contract.

Britney's Attack Umbrella Hitting Auction Block

7/26/2017 7:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The green umbrella Britney Spears unleashed on a paparazzo after shaving her head in 2007 is hitting the auction block ... and at a decent price, if you've got thousands of dollars laying around. 

Daniel Ramos, the pap whose car Britney clubbed with the thing, says he's ready to part with the piece of pop culture history since he thinks Brit Brit's in a good place. Plus he's making a movie and needs the dough. He has floated the idea of the sale in the past, and now it looks like he's ready to make the move.

He had it on him when we ran into him at LAX Tuesday, and it looked to be in good shape although Ramos wouldn't recommend it being used in the rain. The umbrella is listed online with RR Auction and hits the block August 10th.

As for how much it could fetch, Ramos is thinking in the $50k ballpark, and has a favored spot for it to land.

Chumlee Dumping Infamous Vegas Party Crib

7/26/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chumlee's done partying his ass off ... in one spot anyway -- the infamous Vegas home where cops once found guns and weed is on the market.

The "Pawn Stars" cast member listed his 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom pad for a whopping $1,849,900. It's a sweet deal if he gets his asking price -- he bought it 5 years ago for $1.1 mil.

The 6,206 square foot pad has a pool, spa and guest house. It's really a bachelor's paradise where Chumlee famously partied hard ... until cops searched the house in March 2016 and found more than 120 grams of weed and 12 guns. He eventually got off with 3 years probation.

Kyle Gluhm from Realty ONE Group is listing the home, which includes the "Chum Chum" room ... stripper pole included. Strippers NOT included, we're guessing. 

Kim Kardashian Sued by Makeup Artist ... Your Logo's Me$$ing with Me!

7/25/2017 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:53 PM PT -- Sources connected to Kim's makeup line tell us she consulted several veteran trademark attorneys when launching her KKW line to ensure there were no violations. Nevertheless, we're told her team is confident KKW Beauty in no way infringes on Weiss' KW brand ... nor do they feel the lines are similar.

Kim Kardashianhas no right to her own initials ... in the cosmetics world, anyway ... according to the Danish makeup artist who's now suing her.

If you're into makeup you probably know the name Kirsten Kjaer Weiss. She says she's a famous makeup artist, and her line of KW cosmetics and makeup services are hot sellers around the world. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Kirsten says Kim K's cosmetics logo is confusing consumers. She says the problem is Kim's products bear the 'KKW' logo ... far too similar to Kirsten's 'KW.' 

In the suit, Kirsten says Kim's infringement is "knowing, willing and deliberate" -- and it's intended to dupe customers and screw with Kirsten's bottom line.

The great Dane wants the court to immediately block Kim from using 'KKW,' and to award her all of Kim's sizeable profits, and to punish KK by making her pay damages.

Blac Chyna I Can Race Nicki In My New Ferrari (In Your Face, Rob!)

7/24/2017 5:01 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Blac Chyna is sending a message to Rob Kardashian -- and even her old side piece, Ferrari -- she doesn't need either of them to get around fast.

Chyna just purchased a 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider. The whip's starting price is around $334k, but Chyna's is custom with Forgiato wheels so it'll cost way more.

Chyna got the new wheels Monday, a few weeks after Rob took back both the Ferrari and Lamborghini he bought her after the revenge porn fiasco, and ultimate breakup.

It's interesting Chyna rushed to pick up the new luxury ride. She just appeared in Yo Gotti's "Rake It Up" video alongside Nicki Minaj, who has a line on the track where she raps: "Brought out the pink Lamborghini just to race with Chyna."

It appears Chyna fell victim to the hype.


Beyonce & Jay-Z Neighbor Says Welcome to Bel-Air You're Our Wet Dream!!!

7/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay-Z might be the lucky charms their future next door neighbor dreamed about.

There's a couple that owns a Bel-Air house next door to the one where Bey and Jay are about to close escrow. As we reported, the Carters are paying around $100 mil for the mansion.

That's good news for the neighbors, who have tried in vain to sell their home since 2015. Problem is ... the lot is kinda screwy. The driveway is narrow and goes downhill, and when people pay millions they want more.  

But now prospective buyers will get more ... as in maybe the biggest power couple in the U.S., next to Barack and Michelle.  

As they say, it's all about location, location, location. Bel-Air is one of hoitiest of toitiest areas in L.A. and living next door to Bey and Jay puts the neighbors in the epicenter of celebrity power.

Ultimately, it's all about price, and when you compare what the Carters are paying to the very reasonable $18 million dollar price tag on the house next door ... well, the listing agents clearly think it's now a steal.

Usain Bolt Crazy Expensive Watch Will Fight Muscular Dystrophy

EXCLUSIVE

Dope watch, right? The story behind it's even better. 

Usain Bolt teamed up with Hublot to make the custom see-through timepiece -- we're told it's worth around $50,000 -- and they're auctioning it off to fight muscular dystrophy.

It's call the "Big Bang Unico Sapphire" -- and features sapphire, 18k gold and a silhouette of Bolt's signature pose on the the dial!!

It's 1 of 1 -- the only Bolt special edition ever made -- and it's part of the Only Watch charity auction with the winning bid going to medical research to fight muscular dystrophy.

There's more ... the auction winner also gets a meet and greet with Bolt himself. 

FYI, bidding goes til November if you wanna throw down.

Birdman to Tyga I Owe You $12M?! Bitch, You Ain't S***!!!

7/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Birdman's fuming at Tyga publicly declaring Cash Money owes him $12 million ... because he says that statement is complete BS.

Sources connected to the Cash Money honcho tell TMZ ... Tyga's actually the one who walked away still owing the label an album. We're told the label had no problem releasing him because his sales were sluggish.

You'll recall Tyga left Cash Money for Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music back in 2016. All seemed fine, until he went on "The Breakfast Club," and copped to paying $1 mil to get out of his deal -- but also made the $12 mil claim.

Tyga said he isn't suing for the money, which one source sees as proof he's full of crap. As it was put to us, "What person says they won't sue if they're owed $12 million?"

You can smell the beef cooking.

DeSean Jackson Mayweather's Strip Club Is Money! ... One of the The Best Ever

7/23/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather ain't just the best in the ring, he's also one of the GREATEST strip club entrepreneurs in America ... so says booty aficionado DeSean Jackson

Now, that DJax is playing for the Bucs, we asked if the rumors are true -- that Tampa Bay really is the #1 city for strip clubs in the country. 

If you didn't know, Tampa has more strip clubs per capita than just about any other city in the U.S.

But DeSean isn't sold on the T&A scene in TB just yet ... telling TMZ Sports there's a VERY obvious #1.

Among the top, Mayweather's Girl Collection in Vegas -- which Floyd opened earlier this year. 

Alright ladies of Tampa, the challenge has been laid down.

Flavor Flav Will Give O.J. His Statue Back ... But There's a Catch

7/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news, bad news for O.J. Simpson ... 

The Good News: Flavor Flav says he's still in possession of Simpson's famous statue of himself (the one featured in "The People Vs. O.J. Simpson") and will gladly give it back to his old friend. 

The Bad News: If Simpson accepts Flav's offer, Fred Goldman could get a judge to force O.J. to sell it immediately to pay off part of the judgement against him in the wrongful death case.

Little backstory ... the statue was seized from Simpson's home and put up for auction in 1999 with the profits going toward paying off the $33.5 million judgement awarded to the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown

The statue was purchased for $3,250 by radio host Mancow Muller -- who later gifted it to Flav

But the Public Enemy rapper says he'd gladly return it to Simpson when he gets out of prison in October ... if Simpson wants it back. 

Flav says he previously tried to return it but O.J. refused the gift -- saying at the time, "They (meaning the Goldmans) would just take it away again."

There could be a TON of money at stake this time around -- Flav has been shopping the statue with a 6-figure price tag. We're told he's received offers close to asking, but so far, no deal has been made.

Stay tuned ...
