George Clooney is getting a big discount on booze for his wedding, with the help of best friend Rande Gerber ... who's flying more than 50 cases of tequila to Italy for the big shindig a week from Saturday.
TMZ got video Monday of Randy leaving L.A. for Italy in a private jet ... loaded with at least 50 cases of Casamigos tequila ... the company owned by George and Rande.
The video is fantastic ... Rande drives up in a blacked-out black Mercedes right to his jet, where he inspects the precious cargo ... then has one of the guys cut open 2 boxes. Cindy Crawford's hubby then removes one bottle of Reposado and one bottle of Blanco ... then proudly fist pumps them as he boards the jet.
There are numerous reports in Italy ... the wedding is set for a week from Monday at Cipriani hotel in Venice.
Arrivederci ... and recuerdos a todos.

She's the Straw That Slurred the Drink

Sonja Morgan was a drunken, slurry, kissy mess in NYC last night ... and best of all -- she did it all on camera.
The "Real Housewives of New York" star was leaving the VIP Room in NYC Wednesday night -- WASTED -- and desperately wanted to tell us how she was the life of the party. Problem is ... she was too wasted to get the words out cleanly.
Actually, that's not a problem -- it's awesome. Just watch.
We'd say Sonja was in rare form ... if it weren't for the fact she does this a lot.
Single Guy Parties Too Hard
9/3/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke gave cops the same treatment Paula Patton's been giving him -- ignoring officers who asked him to stop blasting music on Labor Day ... and he ended up getting a ticket for it.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the LAPD was called to Thicke's home in the Hollywood Hills late Monday night, into Tuesday morning, after neighbors complained about loud music.
We're told Thicke appeared to be drunk -- no big deal since he was partying at home -- but also had a "total disregard" for the cops. After agreeing to lower the volume, we're told Robin cranked it up again once the officers walked away. So they wrote him up for loud music.
A source close to Robin tells us he actually apologized to police.
We're told this was the 2nd night within the last week police went to Robin's house for noise complaints.

... IN THE CLUB!!!

Lil Wayne found himself in the mood for some watermelon while partying in an Atlanta nightclub Sunday night ... and luckily he brought some with him.
Wayne was at the Velvet Room when he was seen taking a snack break. Weezy had a slice of watermelon in one hand ... and what appears to be a blunt in other.
Apparently the Velvet Room has a BYOW policy.
Yeah, I Got High
AFTER the Emmys
8/26/2014 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sarah Silverman brought weed with her to the Emmys, but that doesn't mean she was high during the show. Now LATER in the evening is a whole other story ...
On her way into the big event, Sarah showed off her pot vapor pen and when she won an award ... people thought her speech was a little all over the place.
But after the show, Sarah told our photog she didn't smoke before or during the show ... but planned on celebrating with it later on.
Cause that's what winners do.
VMA Party Shooting
Hear the Gunshots [VIDEO]
8/24/2014 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
This video puts you right in the middle of SHOTS FIRED at the VMA pre-party early Sunday morning.
There is clearly a lot of commotion before the shots ring out. We're told a fight had broken out and it's clear from the video people were going at it.
It sounds like there are 4 quick shots ... and then a 5th. But we're told by Suge Knight's family he was shot 6 times. So the number of shots is unclear.
BTW ... you can't see it in the video, but eyewitnesses tell us during the shooting Chris stood there with arms outstretched, trying to look invincible.
Three people were wounded. Law enforcement sources tell us ... they're focusing on gang rivalry as a possible motive for the shooting.
SHOT Multiple Times
After VMA Party turns Violent
8/24/2014 2:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
5:45 AM PT -- Suge is out of surgery … according to family sources. We're told Suge was shot 6 times. He's currently in ICU, but is expected to recover.
Shots rang out at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood at around 1:30 AM Sunday ... and Suge Knight was shot twice and taken to the hospital by ambulance where he was rushed into surgery ... eyewitnesses and Suge's family tell TMZ.
A source close to Suge tells us ... he was shot in the stomach and arm and apparently in other places as well.
Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri'chard and Apple de Ap all tell TMZ ... they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard 4 shots ring out inside the club.
Suge walked out on his own power ... a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
We do not know the seriousness of Suge's injuries. Multiple sources now tell us Suge was one of 3 people who were shot. At least 1 is in critical condition. Sheriff's deputies had guns drawn as clubgoers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting.
The night started with tension. An hour-and-a-half before the shots, Game came to the club and he and his buddies got into an altercation with security guards ... there was a full-on fight. Game tried to get in, was denied and left, but his buddies stayed behind. We do not know if they were involved in the altercation.
MTV wanted to make it clear ... it wasn't their party ... it's was Chris Brown's.
Chris Brown & Justin Bieber
Partying Together Before Shooting
8/24/2014 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown is batting 1 for 2 ... he hosted a party hours before the 1OAK bullet fest and no one got shot.
Chris, Justin Bieber and other celebs were celebrating VMA weekend at an L.A. mansion. As far as we can see Suge Knight wasn't there.
Likewise ... there's no evidence Justin was at 1OAK when shots were fired later in the evening.
Bieber was too cool for school at the mansion ... sporting a brown fedora and shades. He hung with Chris and his crew for much of the time.
Wears Fiancee's Name at Strip Club
8/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Hart dispensed with the formality of introducing his fiancee to his ex-wife at the strip club Monday night ... because he had her name plastered on his body.
We got photos of Kevin at Magic City strip club in ATL ... where he and fiancee Eniko Parrish dropped $40K to celebrate their engagement. But check out Kevin's shirt ... with Eniko's name emblazoned on it.
As we reported ... Kev's ex, Torrei, was partying in the club that night with her "Atlanta Exes" co-stars ... and while she and Kevin never spoke, we're pretty sure she got his message.
Drake and Rihanna
Together and Very Possibly
8/19/2014 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
So Drake and Rihanna walk into a club ... which means they were banging, right?
The former couple hit up Griffin nightclub in NYC Monday night ... and according to photogs they were there for nearly 2 hours and left at around 3 AM -- 21 minutes apart.
Eyewitnesses inside the club tell TMZ ... Drake and Rihanna had tables next to each other and were deep in conversation, flirtatious and whispering in each other's ears.
Enough evidence for you?
GOES FULL CYBORG
Busts Out Robot At Hamptons Dance Party
8/19/2014 5:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
John McCain is a DANCING MACHINE -- no seriously, he's like a fully functioning cyberdyne robot ... and this weekend he busted out his mechanical dance moves in front of Jamie Foxx at a party in the Hamptons.
With The Roots providing the beat, the Arizona senator went into full "Zoolander" pop-and-lock battle mode on stage during a benefit at Ron Perelman’s East Hampton estate.
Jamie Foxx tried to mimic McCain's moves -- but the guy just couldn't keep up.
Apparently, McCain followed NJ Gov. Chris Christie ... who also showed off some moves -- but everyone seems to agree, McCain blew the guy out of the water.
