EXCLUSIVE

French Montana was not under the influence of alcohol when he was photographed drinking Ciroc from the bottle while cruising on one of Diddy's Sea-Doos ... so claim people close to the rapper.

As we previously reported ... French was in Miami Beach Saturday, catching some rays and drinking vodka. It's not illegal in Florida to drink while boating, but it IS illegal to drink to the point that the driver is impaired.

Although our French sources insist he "was not f***** up," Khloe posted a pic around the same time showing her crew -- including French -- on Diddy's roof with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!! #StepIntoTheCircle."

EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian DrivingRob Kardashian -- who hasn't been seen for months -- emerged from his Calabasas home this weekend to run a few errands with friends.

It's hard to get a good look, but what you see is clear ... he looks about the same. 

Rob famously went into seclusion before Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West, partially due to self-image problems over his weight.

Having barely been seen or heard since, Rob did make a cameo on social media recently ... to trash his sister Kim.

Dog the Bounty Hunter

In Dogfight Over Fugitive's Arrest

3/30/2015 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0330-dog-bounty-tmz-01Dog the Bounty Hunter is so into dogs, he allegedly tried to buy one off a fugitive ... while his cohorts were kicking in the guy's front door to haul his ass off to jail ... but Dog's lawyer says the fugitive is lying about him wanting to buying the pooch.

Dog's latest catch, James Hawkins tells TMZ ... he was arrested earlier this month at his Texas home, and as he was cuffed he claims Dog immediately locked eyes with his great dane -- and whipped out $1,000 cash to take it away.

Hawkins was pissed, and told Dog to lay off Duke -- a 7-year-old, 200 lb. pooch. He says Duke doesn't need to be rescued by DBH or anyone else.

Dog's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ his client NEVER tried to buy Duke ... never offered him a cent for the animal.  

Hawkins -- who was wanted for failing to pay bond on a previous arrest -- is considering suing Dog for trespassing ... and forcing him to sign release papers for the reality show. 

Meanwhile, Hawkins' fam didn't seem offended -- they all posed for pics with Beth Chapman while Dog was busting dear ole dad.

Blac Chyna

Hey Kylie, Watch and Learn

3/30/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner may have had the last word in her watch-off with Blac Chyna, but Ms. Chyna is letting her arm do the talking.

You'll recall ... the 2 girls played the game, "Tyga loves me more" last week when Blac Chyna posted a pic of an expensive watch Tyga had given her back in the day, and then Kylie posted her watch -- almost identical to Blac Chyna's -- with the word, "Currently."

We got Blac Chyna cruising out of the Montage in Bev Hills Sunday night, and while she said nothing about the watch, she actually said a lot.

Jamie Foxx

Rides Bruce Jenner's Nuts

3/29/2015 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie Foxx killed with Bruce Jenner transition jokes at the iHeart Radio Music Awards.

Foxx hosted the award show Sunday night in L.A. ... and in his opening monologue he teased the upcoming musical acts, saying Bruce Jenner would be performing -- "He's doing a his and her duet all by himself."

The jab scored big laughs -- Chris Brown was particularly amused -- and Jamie went back for more ... hitting Bruce right in the family jewels for his next punchline.

Watch the video ... Jamie's jokes were hardly groundbreaking -- lots of comedians have been using Bruce for material -- still ... arguably insensitive. 

French Montana

Cruisin' and Boozin'

In Miami Beach

3/29/2015 11:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0329-french-montana-drinking-and-boating-SPLASH-INF-02French Montana may have violated the laws of the Sea-Doo Saturday ... because it sure looks like he's drinking on the watercraft.

French was traversing the area around Diddy's house, drinking from a Ciroc vodka bottle and looking like a spokesmodel. The photog who shot the pics says the Sea-Doo is owned by Diddy, who BTW also owns Ciroc.

Of course it's possible he's doing something promotional for the vodka and it's actually water, but that would seem like the worst promotion ever -- drinking while boating.

He's steering with one hand as he takes swigs.

And check this out. Khloe just posted a photo on top of Diddy's roof, showing them partying with French -- vodka in hand -- with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!!#stepIntoTheCircle."

We've called French Montana's rep ... so far no word back.

Joe Haden must know a good smize when he sees it ... 'cause the NFL superstar is so sure he's found  "America's Next Top Model" he's leading a social media campaign to get that man on the show.

Haden, along with fellow pigskin pros Carlos Dunlap and Jason Pierre-Paul have taken to Instagram in support of a Miami model named  "Prince" who's trying to score a spot on ANTM's upcoming Season 22.

The three men -- who have over 450k IG followers between them -- each recently posted modeling shots of Prince to their pages along with messages encouraging casting directors to put him on.

We spoke to Prince -- who knows Haden and the other players from partying in Miami -- and he tells TMZ Sports their efforts have sparked some legit interest in him that might otherwise have been hard to come by.

"All those casting directors saw it and it opened the door to conversations with them."

Prince -- who made a mystery trip to L.A. this past weekend -- couldn't tell us whether or not he's made the show yet (sworn to secrecy) but says the NFL love definitely put him on the map.

"1,000% it's helped ... i got tons of new followers because of [the players] and in this business, it's all about exposure."

Better start perfecting that walk young man.

Kim picked up some groceries Saturday at Ralph's in Calabasas.  And get this ... it's not even Bristol Farms ... or Whole Foods.

Dying to know what's in the bag, right?

Scott Disick

Turnt Up in Vegas

After 'Rehab'

3/28/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick was a wild man in Vegas, scoring a big fee for hosting Friday night festivities at 1OAK.

Disick, you know, bailed on rehab a week ago because he said he had business obligations.  Before he left his cushy Costa Rican facility, he partied at 2 nightclubs.   He kept it going last night.

No evidence Disick, who famously has problems with alcohol abuse, was boozing it up in the club.

You hear Disick scream in the video, inviting clubgoers to orally pleasure his friend.

The whole rehab thing is really starting to sound fallacious. 

 

'Neighbors With Benefits'

Real Swingers Blast Show

We're Not All HOT!!

3/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Neighbors With Benefits" ... the new reality show about swinging couples ... blows the big one, at least according to a couple of high profile swingers on the Playboy payroll.

Michael and Holli, hosts of Playboy Radio's "Swing" ... say A&E's show takes their sensual lifestyle and makes it look like a weird sex cult -- plus it's loaded with false information about the community. 

On 'Neighbors,' which is set in Ohio, the couples flaunt their sexuality in bars and swap out in the open -- but Michael and Holli say that just ain't how it goes down. And what really pisses them off is the show's claim you have to be "hot" to partake.

The hosts insists peeps of all shapes, sizes and looks are welcome.

Just drop your keys in the bowl.

Prince

Sued for Allegedly Poaching 'Voice' Contestant

3/27/2015 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-prince-judith-hill-tmz-01Prince shamelessly stole a recording artist away from the producer who discovered Lady Gaga ... and her company is now going after The Purple One in court.

Singer Judith Hill made a name for herself on "The Voice" in 2013. Sony got interested in her. Ditto Jolene Cherry, the famed producer who first eyed Lady Gaga. Sony and Cherry partnered and claim they signed her to an exclusive recording deal.

A few months ago, Sony and Cherry heard rumblings that Hill was meeting with Prince for a recording session. They warned her to stop earlier this month, only to learn that she and Prince recorded an entire album -- 11 songs -- and released it Monday as a free Internet download.

Cherry is now going after Prince with a vengeance, courtesy of her lawyer Larry Stein, asking not only for regular damages but punitive damages for underhandedness.

The explosion happened around 3:17 PM ET and the resulting fire tore through several buildings, a mix of residential and commercial properties. The cause of the explosion is said to be "gas-related."

'Basketball Wives' Star Sundy Carter

I Want Draya Michele Prosecuted

An Eye for an Eye, Baby!

3/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sundy Carter Draya Michele Assault "Basketball Wives: LA" star Sundy Carter has filed a police report claiming co-stars Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo violently assaulted her and caused permanent eye damage, but she may have royally screwed up the case.

It happened during a Season 3 episode back in July 2013. Draya allegedly started the fight by calling Sundy "ratchet." Sundy claims Draya punched her and Malaysia hit her in the eye socket.

So here's the problem. Sundy filed the police report Wednesday night -- nearly 2 years after the incident, and the statute of limitations is 1 year.

Sundy says she only found out 6 months ago she has permanent eye damage. She says her vision is blurred, not getting any better, and she now has to wear glasses. And speaking of glasses ... her excuse won't hold water in court.

But there's a ray of hope. Sundy can still file a civil lawsuit against the girls because the statute of limitations is 2 years.

We'd love to livestream that trial. 

You can hear Sundy tell her side on "Icons with Ken Collis," April 1st.
