1020_ryan-lochte-tmzRyan Lochte's lawyers got a double whammy in Brazil -- a judge denied their request to have HIS criminal case dismissed ... then transferred the case to a higher court. 

A rep for the Court of Justice tells TMZ ... a Rio judge kicked Ryan's false police report case up to the public Ministry of Justice, which will now begin figuring out how hefty of a fine to drop on Lochte.

A court rep tells us the Ministry will most likely hand down a fine in excess of the $11k fine Lochte's teammate, Jimmy Feigen, paid to set things right with prosecutors. The decision is expected as early as next week.

Ray Lewis I Support Kaepernick 1000% ... But Kneeling Just Isn't Enough

10/22/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ray Lewis says he's 1000% behind Colin Kaepernick's protest for social justice ... but when it comes to making change it's gonna take more than kneeling to uplift black Americans.

Lewis co-hosted the "TMZ Sports" TV show and got more in-depth then ever on his feelings on Kaep's stand -- and what he thinks needs to be done to make actual change in the black community.

"Kaep, I applaud you, but I am a solutions-based person. If you don't have solutions from a protest then it remains a protest."

So, what's Ray's solution to social injustice? Jobs. He heads up an organization aimed at job creation in inner city areas ... which he says is the key to ending the cycle of disenfranchisement in the hood.

"We have to give these people something to do, so that they don't choose the wrong thing."

Check out the clip ... Ray is as powerful as ever ... and makes his position on Kaep's protest and the issues in black America crystal clear.

Curt Schilling says he's NOT anti-Muslim -- just anti-extremism -- but insists there's a "long-standing connection between Islam and the Nazi party." 

Yeah, there's a lot to digest here. 

The former MLB superstar just appeared on CNN to talk about his potential Senate run -- when he was asked about a social media post which Jake Tapper said compared Muslims to Nazis. 

0825-curt-schilling-twitter"Nope, nope, nope," Schilling said ... "I compared Muslim extremists to Nazis ... that 'extremist' part, I know that's tricky, but that's the part that gets left out by everybody."

"If you take the word extremist out that's an incredibly racist post."

But just when it seemed he was about to back off, Schilling doubled down hard.

Exclusive Details

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.


Donald Trump Accuser I Never Plotted with Hillary ... I'm Republican!!!

10/20/2016 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-donald-trump-temple-taggart-mcdowell-tmz-nbc-01One of Donald Trump's accusers has news for him -- she'd never team up with Hillary Clinton, and has ZERO interest in Hillary being prez ... because she plays for the wrong team.

Temple McDowell -- who repped Utah in the '97 Miss USA pageant -- claims Trump planted unwanted kisses on her lips during a rehearsal, and during a business meeting. She tells TMZ she's outraged at what Trump said during the debate -- accusing Clinton of coercing women to go public with fake stories.

Temple blew up his theory, saying she's always voted Republican, and has NO plans to vote Clinton. She added ... she's willing to hand over phone records to prove she had no contact with Hillary or her campaign.

To be clear, she's also not voting for Trump. Temple says she's backing Utah independent candidate Evan McMullin for President. So, yeah ... she's pissed.

Fun Fact: McMullin is currently leading the Presidential polls in Utah.

Donald Trump Mexican Menus Now Serving 'Bad Hombre' Specials

10/20/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mexican restaurants across America are cashing in "bigly" on Donald Trump's "bad hombres" comment from the third and final presidential debate.

We spoke to Mexican restaurants in 3 different states -- Tennessee, Maine and Pennsylvania, who clapped back at Trump by adding "bad hombre" specials to the menu.

The El Corazon taco truck in Portland, Maine says they sold out of their "Bad Hombre Burrito" 2 hours after putting it on the menu Thursday morning. The Grubhouse in Philly says it added the "Bad Hombre Breakfast Sandwich" which they say is tremendous since it's stocked with chorizo, eggs, pepper jack and jalapeño ketchup.

To wash it all down ... Rosepepper Cantina, an award-winning stomp in Nashville, is serving up the "Bad Hombre" cocktail which features "very, very strong, believe me, Mezcal" and "The Nasty Woman" with potent, but well-aged tequila. 

Mexican food ... making America great again.

Presidential Debate Vegas Sex Industry Takes a Pounding

10/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-escorts-during-debate-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-02Vegas escorts are moaning alright, but for the wrong reason ... they say the 3rd presidential debate has sucked the sexual drive out of Sin City.

Multiple escort agency owners tell us business has been alarmingly slow over the last 2 days.

The owners and escorts say ... the influx of people for the Trump/Clinton showdown is not the usual crowd coming to Vegas for a good time.

As for why business is down ... the owners have several theories. One ... that everyone's depressed about the way the election has gone, and the crowd isn't up for a fun time.

Another owner had this theory ... the election has been filled with "gotcha" moments, and people are afraid of getting busted.

There is a beneficiary in all this misery. Dennis Hof, the guy who runs the Bunny Ranch 45 minutes outside of Vegas, says his business is booming. The Ranch -- a legal brothel where Lamar Odom ODd and almost died a year ago -- is booked to capacity, and he's even running extra limos.
