Darwin Vela -- the man who "disappeared" last week after evidence surfaced that a Charlie Sheen sex tape was stolen -- was mum last night on his way out of jail after being booked for burglarizing the house of Nic Cage's baby mama.
TMZ broke the story ... Vela, his girlfriend, Kelly McLaren (below), were not interested in talking about a Charlie Sheen sex tape that may have been on one of the computers. As we reported, Vela, McLaren and Ricardo Orozco (who is currently on trial for the burglary), paid a visit to Charlie's lawyer's office to get a price tag for the tape.
So far ... no Charlie sex tape has surfaced.

The man who mysteriously disappeared last week just before he was supposed to testify in a burglary case that may involve a Charlie Sheen sex tape has just been arrested himself for the burglary ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
Darwin Vela and his girlfriend, Kelly McLaren, are currently in custody ... charged with breaking into the home of Nic Cage's baby mama, Christina Fulton and stealing 4 computers and other stuff.
Ricardo Orozco, Fulton's handyman, is currently facing trial for the same burglary. Vela was supposed to testify last week at his preliminary hearing, but a day before he was walking his dog and vanished.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they don't believe anyone attacked or kidnapped Vela -- they think he just made himself scarce so he didn't have to testify. Our sources say they believe all 3 of them committed the crime.
As we reported ... Vela and Orozco, along with McLaren, went to one of Charlie's reps and asked what the actor would pay to get his sex tape back. The tape was never produced.
Sex Tape Witness -- FOUND After KIDNAPPING
11/22/2013 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The man who disappeared in the case that involves a Charlie Sheen sex tape has been found ... and law enforcement sources tell us, he told cops he was KIDNAPPED. And, we've learned the LAPD has launched a criminal investigation into the kidnapping allegations.
Darwin Vela was located at 2 PM PT today, after vanishing Tuesday as he took his dog for a walk in South L.A. We're told Vela flagged down someone on the street and that person called 911.
As we first reported ... Vela and another man, Ricardo Orozco, went to Sheen's reps a while back and said they had a Charlie Sheen sex tape and wanted to know how much the tape would be worth -- i.e., extortion.
Orozco was arrested for allegedly stealing computers owned by Nic Cage's baby mama and law enforcement sources say they believe one of the computers contained the sex tape. Orozco was arrested and charged with burglary.
Vela was scheduled to testify in Orozco's preliminary hearing Thursday but on Tuesday, he left his house to walk his Chocolate Lab and a short time later the dog came back with human blood on its leash and was freaked out.
We do not know if Vela was injured. One law enforcement source says there were injuries but we can't be more specific. Cops are about to interview him.
Story developing ...
Sex Tape Linked to Missing Witness
11/22/2013 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A man who was supposed to be a key witness in a major burglary case is missing ... and sources tell TMZ there's a direct link to a Charlie Sheen sex tape that was being secretly shopped.
As TMZ reported ... Ricardo Orozco is currently on trial for allegedly breaking into the home of Christina Fulton -- Nic Cage's baby mama -- and stealing computers and boxes of memorabilia, allegedly including nude photos of Nic Cage.
During the preliminary hearing Thursday, a detective testified that one of the items taken was a Charlie Sheen video that we're told was on one of the stolen computers. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... it's a sex tape.
Now here's the link between the sex tape and the missing man. We're told Darwin Vela -- the missing man -- along with Orozco, recently went to meet with Charlie's people, claiming they had a sex tape starring Charlie and wanted to sell it, but Vela and his people never produced the tape.
Vela is a key witness in the Ricardo Orozco burglary case and was supposed to testify in the preliminary hearing as early as today.
Now get this. On Tuesday, Vela took his dog Cocoa for a walk, and the Chocolate Lab returned home without him with human blood on its leash, trembling and whimpering. Vela has not been seen since.
And, TMZ was doing some digging yesterday, and we spoke with several men who have never proven to be fearful in the past but literally were shaking in their boots when we talked to them about Orozco and the burglary.
Justin Bieber Party
Naked Girls Everywhere
11/18/2013 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber's Gatsby party on Friday was FILLED with naked chicks ... as far as the eye could see ... this according to sources inside the party -- and all Justin's celebrity friends were there, including Floyd Mayweather and Chris Brown.
Sources at the party tell us, there were at least 20 "big booty" strippers there -- and the girls who weren't strippers felt self-conscious wearing clothes, so they stripped down too. Basically, every man's dream.
And Bieber was tipping like a pro -- we're told he had stacks of ones and made it rain all night, dumping more than $10,000 in cash on the girls. One dancer tells us she made $1,300 alone.
According to sources, Breezy, Floyd, T.I., Trey Songz, and Snoop were there too. We're told Snoop had his priorities straight though, spending most of his time playing strip beer pong with some ladies.
As for booze and weed ... we're told there were 3 open bars and plenty of kush to go around.
TMZ broke the story ... Bieber's party was a rager and Bieber's neighbors weren't happy -- one even filed a police report, claiming Bieber was disturbing the peace.

Drake and Rihanna are investing big in the Houston stripper market -- dropping a combined $17,000 Thursday at a H-town gentlemen's club ... and we found some booty-bouncing video.
Sources at V Live Gentlemen's Club tell us, Rihanna arrived around 2AM and Drake showed up about 30 minutes later following his show at the Toyota Center.
We're told Drake threw down roughly $12,000 and Rihanna dumped an additional $5,000.
You can't see Drake and Rihanna together in the video, but we're told they sat side by side in the club -- and eventually left together after 5AM. One source said the two were touchy-feely and looked like a couple.
Throw it up, throw it up.

Here's Kate Upton ... basically naked ... with some strategically placed body paint.
Kate got all painted up for a Sports Illustrated photo shoot -- in the footage, Kate's trying to recreate one of the mag's most famous Swimsuit Edition covers.
We think she nailed it.
"I definitely feel naked," Kate said during the shoot ... "Because I am."
Kate said the artists took a particularly long time to paint on the necklace on her boob area ... yeah, can't imagine why.
Swapping Spit with
Tiger Woods' Mistress
10/29/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If she was shy before, she sure as hell ain't now -- Tami Erin (who starred in the 1988 Pippi Longstocking movie) has gone full-on Vegas stripper after her sex tape hit the market ... and she's even making out with one of Tiger Woods' ex-mistresses.
The pics were snapped at a Halloween party she hosted over the weekend at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club -- surprise -- and the ex-mistress on the receiving end of her smooches is porn star Joslyn James ... aka Tiger mistress #11.
We're told Tami wasn't originally supposed to strip -- she was just hired to host the party -- but when she took the stage to thank the crowd ... she got into the stripping mood real quick ... people even tipped her. (No lap dances though.)
It's pretty funny, considering Tami was so coy about her sex tape in the beginning. You'll recall she initially tried to block the release of the tape (or so she claims) but then changed her mind ... big time, apparently.

2:36 P.M. PDT -- We just spoke to Mary ... she tells us she took a powerful sleeping pill and had some drinks before her flight ... and she shouldn't have done it. She's excited to attend tonight's party.
Porn star Mary Carey had to be dragged off a plane this morning for being too drunk ... threatening to sabotage a huge party with naked people tonight in Florida ... TMZ has learned.
Carey -- who appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" in 2008 for a drinking problem -- is scheduled to be the featured attraction tonight in Key West for an ABC (Anything But Clothes) party.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Carey got wasted during a red-eye flight from Cali to Florida ... and refused to get off the plane when it landed in Miami. We're told cops had to remove her from the plane, and she told them she had mixed booze with meds.
Carey was not arrested, but police wouldn't let her board her connecting flight to Key West -- though she eventually got there. We're told the ABC party organizers sent a car to pick her up, and she's sleeping it off now.
Fun Fact: Porn star Ron Jeremy was on the same flight, and even he couldn't get her off.

Oklahoma Sooners WR
Alleged Serial Masturbater
10/16/2013 11:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Trey Metoyer has a problem -- he can't stop masturbating in public ... this according to police docs obtained by TMZ.
The sophomore -- who was a 5-star recruit out of high school -- was charged with 2 counts of felony indecent exposure after allegedly throwing a J in public on 2 separate occasions.
Here's the breakdown, according to cops:
8/29/13 -- Someone called police in Norman, OK to report a man wearing a blue shirt and blue pants pleasuring himself inside of a red Pontiac Grand Am.
9/17/13 -- A woman called police saying Metoyer approached her while she was walking her dog and asked to borrow a pen. She went inside her apt. to grab it and when she returned outside, Trey was outside of her front door"masturbating in front of her apartment."
The woman said Trey then asked her "if she would want the pen back."
We're guessing she declined his offer.
Cops say Metoyer initially denied the allegations -- but later acknowledged them and said " the incidents were a mistake and he was not thinking clearly at the time.''
Metoyer has since left the football team -- so he'll have a lot of time on his hands. Hope he'll keep them in his pockets ...

Pam Anderson ain't exactly shy about public nudity ... so when the opportunity came up for the 46-year-old to go top down at a topless beach in France ... out came the gals.
Pam was with her BF Rick Salomon -- and the two were spotted romping around the beaches in Biarritz, France yesterday like two topless teenagers.
Fun Fact -- Biarritz is the birthplace of famed chemist Ernest Fourneau -- who played a key role in the development of chemotherapy as a way to combat cancer.

Chick Fans Show

Hollywood got all 1998 on Joey Fatone last night, and it was spectacular -- as a simple photo with 2 female fans turned into an exhibition of nipple piercings.
Joey was walking out of Beacher's Madhouse in Hollywood when a convo with him about Britney Spears was thankfully interrupted by a couple of adoring fans ... who asked our camera guy to snap a pic.
One girl immediately says, "I was going to show you my nipple piercing" -- and even though Joey says that's not necessary ... sometimes s**t happens.
Three awesome reasons to watch this clip: 1) The girl who flashes her boob ... 2) Joey squirming while it happens .... and 3)see reason#1.
It's like N Sync's heyday all over again. Enjoy!
