Dani Mathers Convicted in Body Shaming Case

5/24/2017 11:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers has a choice ... either go to jail or do some hard labor, as her punishment for secretly taking a pic of an elderly woman in a gym locker room and then shaming her on social media.

Mathers was in court Wednesday and copped a plea in her criminal invasion of privacy case. The judge told Mathers she could pick door #1 or door #2.

Door #1: 45 days in jail and 36 months probation.

Door #2: 30 days graffiti removal ... again with 36 months probation.

She chose door #2.

You'll recall Dani took a pic of a naked, 71-year-old woman at an LA Fitness and then posted the pic on Snapchat with caption, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

The judge didn't lecture Dani ... it was all business.

Utah Jazz's Jeff Withey Accused of Domestic Violence ... By Playmate Ex

4/20/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey has been accused of domestic violence in a police report filed by his Playboy Playmate of the Year ex-fiancee, Kennedy Summers ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement sources confirm the report was filed in Manhattan Beach, CA on Tuesday and references multiple alleged incidents. We're told cops are focused on one alleged incident from 2016. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to an incident involving Withey and Summers last year, but no report was made at the time and nobody was arrested.

Sources connected to Summers tell us she filed the report now because Withey and the Jazz are in an NBA playoff series with the L.A. Clippers and she's concerned for her safety when he's in L.A.

Kennedy’s rep, Zack Teperman, tells us ... "Given the ongoing circumstances, our client now needs to protect herself and come forward about everything so this doesn't happen to her or others in the future."

Withey and Summers have had relationship issues for years -- they broke up back in 2016 after Summers trashed the NBA player on social media when she found out he took someone else on a movie date behind her back. 

They reconciled and got engaged a few months later before finally calling things off for good in October. 

We reached out to Withey's camp for comment. So far, no word back. 

Kendra Wilkinson I Wouldn't Tap Mama June's Ass

4/6/2017 7:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June ain't Kendra Wilkinson's type ... nothing personal, the former Playmate just likes a little more exotic booty.

We got Kendra at LAX where she applauded Mama June's massive 300 lb weight loss, but stopped short of recommending her for a Playboy spread.

Kendra has other standards in mind.


Mel B Belafonte Targeted Playboy Mansion for 3-Ways

4/5/2017 8:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Belafonte had a favorite place to take Mel B for 3-ways ... the Playboy Mansion, sources connected with Mel B tell TMZ.

Our sources say Belafonte would "hound and cajole" Mel B to go to the Mansion, which she generally didn't want to do. We're told he would badger her for hours until she was worn down and finally agreed to go.

Once there, our sources say Belafonte would encourage her to drink -- she has struggled with alcohol abuse -- and when she got drunk he would then zero in on Playboy Bunnies for 3-ways.

Sources connected with Belafonte say they had an open marriage. Mel B calls BS on that, alleging Belafonte would often videotape the 3-ways and then threaten to release the videos if she didn't continue to participate in the encounters.

Playboy's Noor Tagouri Gigi Is Not the U.S.'s Muslim Connection

3/7/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The first woman featured in Playboy wearing a hijab says Gigi Hadid can't bridge the Muslim world to the U.S. for one simple reason ... she's not really Muslim. 

We spoke with Noor Tagouri, who appeared in Playboy's October issue -- fully clothed -- and she had her own take on Gigi's veiled cover shot for Vogue Arabia. Unlike Tommy Hilfiger, who thinks Gigi could be an ambassador of sorts ... Noor's not willing to put that kinda pressure on the model. 

Yes, Gigi is half Palestinian, and she marched against Trump's Muslim ban and she has millions of social media followers -- but Noor says that hardly makes her a revolutionary.

However, Noor -- who stars in the Newsy docu-series, "A Woman's Job" -- admits the supermodel could be a powerful voice ... IF she wants to be.

Your move, Gigi.

Holly Madison Sues Penis Pill Co ... I Never Said Hef Took Your Pills!

2/16/2017 7:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Holly Madison never had Hugh Hefner take any testosterone pills before they got busy -- or at least she never endorsed it -- according to a new lawsuit she's filed.

Madison says she discovered an article online saying she did an interview with Dr. Oz describing how Hef took Blackcore Edge to cure his erectile dysfunction. In her suit, she says that's totally false.

According to the docs, the article made it seem like Holly said, "when Hefner took a pill, 15 minutes later his blood would start pumping! He got stronger, bigger, and lasted as long as an 18 year old." It also made it seem like she said all the girls in the Playboy Mansion benefited from the pills.

Holly not only denies the content of the article, but points out she NEVER did an interview with Dr. Oz. She also says the Blackcore Edge article was made to look like it was affiliated with Men's Health ... but it was a knockoff website.

She's suing the male enhancement company for using her name and image without consent, and for the fake quotes.

Dani Mathers Nude Gym Photo Case Prosecutor Wants to Go Hard

2/9/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who snapped a pic of a naked woman at an L.A. gym and posted it -- is barking up the wrong tree by asking the prosecutor to go easy on her.

The L.A. City Attorney filed legal docs asking the judge to reject her lawyer's attempt to avoid jail by undergoing counseling and even taking an anti-bullying course. She's also willing to go to school to tell firsthand how bullying harms people.

The City Attorney is scoffing at Dani's attempt for mercy, saying she never even apologized to the 71-year-old victim -- btw, the City Attorney says her age is relevant. You'll recall, when she posted the nude photo she captioned it, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

Dani faces a maximum of 6 months in jail for the crime of invasion of privacy. The City Attorney has not said if he'll demand jail time.

Dani's attorney, Tom Mesereau, tells TMZ ... this is a 'pathetic' attempt by the City Attorney to get a pound of flesh, and says it's a gigantic waste of taxpayer money. 

Hugh Hefner We'll Be Doggone He's Not Dog Gone

12/12/2016 6:26 AM PST

Call off the dogs -- Hugh Hefner looks to be alive and well ... based on what his wife posted Sunday night.

Crystal Hefner -- Hugh's 3rd wife -- uploaded a Snapchat video of herself and hubby having dinner at the Playboy Mansion ... rocking the ever popular dog filter.

From what we can see, Hef looks pretty good for a guy who's 630 in canine years -- despite rumors he went to the big doghouse in the sky.

Side note: Snapchat does let you post old vids, but it also marks them with a frame, so this looks to be genuine up to date footage of Hef. 

Hugh Hefner Hold My Obit, Please

12/10/2016 6:48 AM PST

Hugh Hefner refuses to let the rumor mill kill him off.

Buzz the Playboy founder had died was pretty intense around Hollywood Friday night, and then around 11 PM ... Hef's team tweeted this pic of him with his wife, Crystal, and the caption, "Tonight's Mansion movie was Bogie and Bacall in 'The Big Sleep.'"

We're pretty sure it's an old pic, but the insinuation is ... he's fine. 90-year-old Hef had a very similar response a few months ago when there was yet another rumor of his demise.

Bad coincidence of the movie title aside ... glad he's okay. 2016's been a bitch.

Playboy Sued Drop McCartney's Sexy Mullet Now And Hand Over the Dough

EXCLUSIVE

A pic of Paul McCartney's mullet is going to cost Playboy some cash ... according to the famous photographer who says the Bunny illegally used the shot.

Rock photog James Fortune -- who's shot Mick Jagger, Robert Plant and Jim Morrison -- says Playboy.com posted a photo gallery in 2014 of "15 Hilariously Awesome Celebrity Mullets" that included Fortune's shot of a shaggy Sir Paul, circa his '70s Wings days.

The gallery is still up ... a huge problem for Fortune who says he never gave Playboy permission to do the 'do in its gallery. He's suing for any profits Playboy's made off Macca's mullet.

Ashley Mattingly might wanna cut back on the weekend cruising ... she faces 4 charges for allegedly plowing her golf cart into 4 parked cars while she was hammered.  

The Orange County D.A. hit the former Playmate with 3 counts of driving under the influence -- including 1 for drugs -- and 1 additional count of hit-and-run with property damage -- all misdemeanors. It's also alleged that her BAC was at least .20%.

Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers Charged with Crime For Snapping Despicable Nude Gym Photo

11/4/2016 10:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who secretly took a pic of a naked woman at an L.A. gym and then shamed her on social media -- has just been charged with the crime of invasion of privacy ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Mathers was at her LA Fitness and zeroed in on an elderly woman who was changing clothes in the locker room. She posted the pic and then tagged it, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

It took some hunting by LAPD detectives, but they found the victim, who was game to have Mathers prosecuted.

The L.A. City Attorney has now pulled the trigger. If convicted she faces 6 months in jail.

Mathers is also persona non grata at LA Fitness.

Dani's attorney, Tom Mesereau, tells TMZ, "I’m disappointed that she was charged with any type of violation. She never intentionally violated anyone’s privacy and never tried to break the law at any time."
