Hank Baskett

Alleged Mistress

Calls Cops Over Harassing Reporters

6/24/2014 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Hank Baskett Mistress
The transsexual who claims she had an affair with Kendra Wilkinson's husband Hank Baskett called the cops on reporters who she claims are now stalking and harassing her.

Cops came to Ava London's L.A. condo late last week to physically remove members of the media who she claims were trying to drum her out of her unit by banging at her door.  She says the reporters were trying to buy surveillance video from the building manager, to see if Baskett ever showed up.

London's lawyer also claims some outlets are making up stories.  He cites In Touch magazine, which claims to have interviewed London.  The lawyer said that never happened and is threatening to sue.

Baskett has been mum.

TMZ reached out to In Touch and Baskett for comment ... so far, no word back.

Brazilian Playboy Model

Check Out My World Cups!

Smoke show Ana Braga hit the beach in Miami, proving there is at least one Brazilian on the planet NOT obsessed with the World Cup.

The bikini model who was once featured on the cover of Playboy Venezuela ... supported her futbol team Tuesday -- the same day they played Mexico -- by wearing a super teeny tiny g-string bikini.

Considering the Mexico match ended in a 0-0 tie ... Ana might need to wear even less for Brazil's next game.

The World Cup is awesome.

She's at it again ... Mexico's number 1 fan 2013 Playboy Playmate of the Year Raquel Pomplun -- once again vowing to go wild on video every time Mexico scores a goal. 

Pomplun -- who was raised in Tijuana -- blew up on the 'net last week by live-cheering Mexico's game against Cameroon ... and clearly, she's more than happy to do it again for today's match against Brazil. 

She's already uploaded a pre-game pump up video to show off her team spirit. 

Hopefully, Mexico pulls through on their end. 

Stay tuned ...

Playboy's Shannon Twins

From Bunnies

to Burgers

0617_shannon_twins_bikini_photos_launch_v2Former Playboy playmates Karissa and Kristina Shannon frolicked on the beach in the Pacific Palisades yesterday with some unusual beach accessories ... burgers and fries.

Hef's ex-girlfriends enjoyed an afternoon at Will Rogers Beach with a few Big Macs and a couple orders of fries. The girls have done a ton of growing up -- all over -- since their Playboy days in 2009.

It may seem odd to bring fast food to the beach, but who doesn't love a set of juicy buns?

The entire TMZ Sports newsroom just became fans of Team Mexico ... because every time the squad scores a goal, Playboy's 2013 Playmate of the Year is celebrating by bouncing around in a skimpy top. 

Raquel Pomplun -- who was raised in Tijuana -- is live-cheering the game with Playboy and Hornitos tequila ... which basically means she quickly records a sexy video anytime Mexico does anything noteworthy. 

Earlier today, Mexico scored its first goal of the World Cup against Cameroon ... and Pomplun went wild.

Sooooo ... Viva Mexico!

But last weekend, Shannon made up for lost time -- partying 3 DAYS STRAIGHT -- Thursday at 340 Nightclub in Pomona, Friday at The Attic in Hollywood, and Saturday at Industry Nightclub in the City of Industry.

Shannon was officially released from prison on March 31, but since her birthday is April 14 ... we're told she postponed her release parties in order to celebrate both occasions.

Shocker ... her boyfriend was not present.

Playboy Golf Lawsuit

Babe AGREED to Butt Stunt

... Here's the Proof!

EXCLUSIVE
031814_playboy_golf_audio_launch_v2
Liz Dickson knew damn well her ass would be IN PLAY when she agreed to put a tee in her butt for a golf stunt at a Playboy event in 2012 ... and TMZ Sports has obtained audio that proves it. 

We broke the story ... Liz filed a lawsuit against Playboy claiming she thought comedian Kevin Klein would only be POSING with his golf club for a photo op ... and was shocked when he took a whack. 

But in audio recorded on the day of the stunt, Kevin makes his intention crystal clear -- saying to Liz, "Would you allow me to place a golf ball on a tee in your butt and attempt to tee off a shot right now down this first fairway?"

Liz initially responds, "Maybe" ... and then says, "What did I get myself into?"

Moments later, she lays down on her stomach and allows a member of Klein's team to place a tee in her butt ... and seems to be 100% in on the stunt.

At one point Klein asks, "How does the golf tee feel in the butt?"
Liz responds, "Ummm ... it's poking my butt."

Klein asks, "Do you enjoy it at all?"
Liz responds, "I love it."

Eventually, Klein takes a swing and smacks Liz in the cheek. When asked if it was painful, she says "it hurt" ... but never seems to object to Kevin taking a swing in the first place. 

Liz is suing for more than $500k in damages, claiming she never signed off on the stunt -- but the audio seems to tell a different story.

Kendra Wilkinson
has NO SYMPATHY for the model suing Playboy ... telling TMZ Sports only an IDIOT would let someone hit a golf ball off a tee shoved in their butt. 

Kendra was leaving the Planet Blue clothing store in Bev Hills this week when she UNLOADED on Liz Dickson -- who claims she suffered injuries during the ass-stunt, which took place at a Playboy event back in 2012. 

"That's HER fault," Kendra said ... before spending another minute ripping the model. 

Ya gotta watch the clip -- it's obvious Kendra's loyalty to Hef runs super deep.

031414_dickinson_golf_launch_v2No wonder this chick's so teed off -- TMZ has obtained video of model Liz Dickson taking that golf club to her ass at a Playboy event ... and it's gnarly as hell.

TMZ broke the story ... Dickson is suing Playboy for more than $500,000, claiming she was badly injured at a Playboy golf tournament in L.A. back in 2012 -- after she was asked to lie on her stomach with a tee between her butt cheeks ... while comedian Kevin Klein took a golf swing.

The video is crazy -- but the photo tells the real story.

In addition to the massive welt, Liz Dickson's attorney tells us, the model damaged her hip ligaments and nerves as a result of the accident. He also says she's incurred more than $33,000 in medical bills so far ... and still feels numbness and tingling in her right leg.

Calls to Playboy were not returned.

Playboy Hottie

Golfer Teed Up On My Ass

And Hurt Me Bad

EXCLUSIVE
0313-liz-dickson-playboy-02
A hot chick is suing Playboy and a golfer for coming up with a cockamamie stunt -- placing a golf tee in her butt and then trying to drive a ball off of it.  It didn't end well.

Liz Dickson claims in her lawsuit she was at an L.A. area golf course back in March, 2012 for a Playboy tournament, when she was instructed to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with comedian and radio host Kevin Klein.

Dickson says a golf tee was placed between her butt cheeks and a golf ball was balanced on the top of the tee.  Klein then took a whack, but his swing sucked and he whacked her in the ass.

Dickson claims she suffered severe injuries, some of which are permanent.  We're assuming the tee was removed.

She's suing for $500K plus punitive damages.

Kendra Wilkinson

U.S. Should LEGALIZE Prostitution

1/31/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


There's NOTHING wrong with whores ... so says Kendra Wilkinson -- who claims the United States should STOP arresting people for prostitution when it involves two consenting adults.

The former Playboy model was wading her way through LAX with hubby Hank Baskett Thursday evening ... when she explained why the laws against hooking are just plain stupid.

For the record, there are parts of the U.S. where one could legally purchase sex ... but it's clear, Kendra believes ALL AMERICANS (of age) should be able to pay for ass.

God, she's patriotic.

Playboy Playmate

Coke Suspected in Death

EXCLUSIVE
0117-getty-Cassandra-LynnPlayboy playmate Cassandra Lynn had indulged in large amounts of cocaine and booze before she was found dead in a bathtub ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the investigation tell us ... Cassandra had flown to L.A. on January 14 and was the guest of a celebrity photographer.  We're told Cassandra complained when she landed she was not feeling well.

The photog took her to a fitting and then a photo shoot in the afternoon and she continued to complain she wasn't feeling right.

Sources say they went to the photog's home in the early evening and partied.  According to our sources ... the photog told law enforcement they had sex and did large amounts of coke and guzzled lots of champagne.

Their party ended at around 11 PM.

We're told at some point early the next morning the photog woke up, went to the bathroom and saw water running onto the floor.  He then discovered Cassandra in the bathtub, pulled her out and attempted in vain to resuscitate her.
