breaking news


Shakira and her soccer superstar boyfriend Gerard Pique claim they are NOT being extorted over an alleged sex tape ... despite reports they're at the center of a blackmail plot. 

The famous couple were reportedly being shaken down by a former employee who had gotten their hands on some homemade "erotic content" of the two ... and wanted a "big sum of money" in return. 

But a rep for Pique says it's all BS -- claiming there's no such plot. 

The report comes after another huge soccer star -- Karim Benzema -- was arrested in France for allegedly blackmailing a teammate over a sex tape

Benzema denies any wrongdoing -- but if convicted, he faces serious prison time.

Soccer superstar Karim Benzema -- who was connected to Rihanna over the summer -- was arrested in France Wednesday morning as part of investigation into a sex tape blackmail case involving another player. 

The 27-year-old Real Madrid star was reportedly summoned to a police station in Versailles where he was questioned about an extortion attempt involving France midfielder Mathieu Valbuena ... who plays with Benzema on the French national team. 

The investigation began back in July -- and reportedly involves a sex tape that was shot on a cell phone. 

Investigators are focusing on a conversation between Benzema and Valbuena from October -- in which the tape is brought up. Investigators were curious if Benzema was giving Valbuena friendy advice on how to handle the situation ... or trying to extort him. 

It's a big deal for Benzema -- if convicted of blackmail in France, he faces up to 5 years behind bars.

0615-lark-voorhies-husband-TMZ-GETTY-01"Saved By The Bell" star Lark Voorhies is gearing up for a fight over what appears to be a sex tape with her estranged husband. 

Jimmy Green is bragging to us he has a homemade tape and is angling for a big sale to the highest bidder.

Lark doesn't deny a tape exists but she tells TMZ if he recorded it he did so surreptitiously ... she says she had no idea.

Jimmy begs to differ, telling us she was on board from the get-go, and she can't change her mind now.

Lark filed for divorce last week citing "irreconcilable differences."  Roger that.

Lil Wayne Take Down the Sex Tape ... Or Else!!!

10/17/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1016-lil-wayne-tmz-01Lil Wayne is on a mission to make his sex tape disappear ... now with the help of his legal guns.

Wayne's attorneys fired off a cease and desist letter -- obtained by TMZ -- to HollywoodStreetKing ... an urban blog that's been posting clips. 

Wayne's legal team is demanding the site to remove the video within 5 days, or else. As for what "or else" means ... it's a lawsuit, dummy!


TMZ broke the story ... the tape shows Wayne wearing nothing but his socks, cavorting with 2 girls. The demand letter does not even concede there is a sex tape, but Wayne's rep tells us if there is one the rapper had NO idea he was being filmed. 

Consent aside, he's probably embarrassed about the socks.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Threatens Legal Action ... Take Down My Sex Tape Or Else!!

10/2/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-nikki-mudarris-tmz-01"Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Nikki Mudarris claims she had no idea a recently leaked sex tape would surface and she's warning everyone who posts it to take it down ... or she'll sue.

Mudarris appears in the video with 'L&HH' co-star Mally Mall and it hit the web this week like wildfire. Nikki's lawyer threatened legal action in a letter sent to various blogs that posted the video to take it down STAT. 

Her attorney claims the video was recorded without Nikki's knowledge and reports of her speaking with Vivid about a deal for the tape are flat out lies.

Media outlets were given until 5 PM Thursday to 86 the tape from their sites.

David Ortiz Gets $100k Porn Offer ... BATTER UP!!

9/24/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923_daivd_ortiz_vivd_gettyMLB slugger David Ortiz may finally get his X-rated wish ... in the form of a REAL $100,000 SEX TAPE OFFER ... after Big Papi revealed that he's always wanted a secret career as a porn star. 

In case you missed it ... the Red Sox legend told the Player's Tribune that if he wasn't an athlete, his dream job would be "Porn Star."

Well, Vivid Entertainment -- the company behind the Kim Kardashian sex tape -- wants to make Ortiz's dream come true. 

We spoke with CEO Steve Hirsch who tells us his people are already drafting up an offer for Papi's big debut ... complete with a working title.

Hirsch says the flick would be called "Big Papi's Slugger" and would feature Ortiz hitting it out of the park with 4 or 5 women at a time because "his personality is too big for just one."

Look, we all know the $100k is chump change for Ortiz, but he also told Players Tribune his favorite song was "Baby Got Back" ... so we're guessing he'd accept other forms of payment if interested.

Lil Wayne If Someone Sells a Sex Tape with My Socks On, I'll Sue!!!

9/21/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0918_lil_wayne_sex_tape_compositeSomeone's shopping a sex tape around starring Lil Wayne and 2 chicks, but Wayne's reps tell TMZ, if a porn company dares to market it, they will have hell to pay.

We're told the big porn companies have been contacted by a person in possession of the tape, which shows Wayne in nothing but his socks, and 2 more-than-accommodating women who do all the work.

Wayne's rep says if there is a tape, the rapper didn't know he was being filmed. And the rep makes it clear they will pounce if a tape is released to the public, saying, "We'll sue the hell out of them."

Without Wayne's sign-off, the big porn companies would never take the risk.

19-Inch Penis Man Vivid Says Correctional Surgery's On Us

9/6/2015 5:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0906-18-inch-penis-guy-roberto-TMZ-01Roberto Esquivel Cabrera -- the man sporting a 19-inch penis -- just got an offer that could change his life...and the way he walks.

We're told Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch offered to pay for medical treatment on Cabrera's two pound penis.

Apparently Hirsch was so shocked by the pics of Cabrera's penis, he agreed to pony up the surgery loot, even if they couldn't strike a deal on a sex tape.

FYI ... some reports claim Cabrera only has a 6-inch penis and the rest is excess skin.

19-Inch Penis First Video ...

9/4/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Roberto Esquivel Cabrera just got an offer that could earn him a fortune ... all because he has a 19-inch penis.

We're told Vivid Entertainment approached the 52-year-old Mexican citizen in an attempt to negotiate a deal for a sex tape, but it's complicated by language barrier, expectations of money and basic anatomy challenges.

We got this video of Cabrera documenting his life, showing the proportions of his penis and even its weight. For the record it's TWO POUNDS.

It's an amazing story ... Cabrera says he carries a heavy burden ... his penis has cost him relationships, jobs and it's too large for him to kneel in church and pray.


Courtney Stodden Happy 21st Birthday ... Drunk Girl!!!

8/30/2015 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It seems Courtney Stodden's been around long enough that she'd be on the backside of 20 by now, but she actually just turned 21, and she clearly liquored it up Saturday during a big celebration.

Courtney was out with hubby Doug Hutchinson at Tortilla Republic in WeHo, and the scene was crazy and loud.   

An Uber was the source of friction and joy.

Ronda Rousey Gets First Shot to Be a Superhero ... But It's in a Porno

8/24/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-ronda-rousey-fun-art-getty-01Ronda Rousey is finally getting a chance to put on spandex tights and a bustier to bring a comic book badass to life -- but she won't be in the outfit too long, since the movie is a XXX film. 

TMZ Sports has learned Rousey just got an offer to star in "Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody." The offer's short on details -- like her character's name or powers -- but it's a lucrative deal. Braun says he'll pay Ronda $5 mil for 3 sex scenes.

Here's what's odd -- he says she'll need to shoot for 2 weeks! Sounds like way more dialogue than the average porno. As we reported, Braun made a similar offer to Ben Affleck's ex-nanny.

This isn't the first time Rousey has been linked to the adult film industry ... there is already an XXX parody about her called "Ronda ArouseMe."

Axel asks for forgiveness in the offer letter, in case Ronda's offended. Wisely, he doesn't want to end up on the business end of an armbar -- which seems likely since there's no way in hell she's accepting.

Ben Affleck's Ex-Nanny Offered $1 Mil To Play Batwoman ... In A Porn Parody

8/23/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-ben-nanny-batgirl-getty-instagram-01Ben Affleck's ex-nanny Christine Ouzounian has a new career option ... playing a caped crusader just like Ben ... the only difference is she'll have to perform her own hardcore stunts in order to get paid.

TMZ has learned porn parody producer and director Axel Braun is offering Christine $1 mil to be in the sequel of "Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody."

It's not just a hit it and quit it scene ... she'd be playing Batwoman, an integral part of the pornline ... she'd have to act for two weeks and do 3 sex scenes.

No word on whether Christine green/red light's the project.

Terrence Howard Cries on Stand

breaking news

0814-terrence-howard-michelle-ghent-tmz-instagramTerrence Howard broke down on the stand today when he testified he signed a settlement agreement with his wife because she threatened to release medical information that would make it impossible for him to ever work in Hollywood again.

Howard was referring to a conversation he taped when Michelle Ghent was on the phone threatening to telling various people he had an STD.

He also testified he felt pressure to sign the settlement agreement -- giving her an unusually large sum of money -- because she threatened to release a sex tape featuring him and another woman.

Howard blew his nose as he fought back tears on the stand, taking deep breaths as he testified.

He's trying to undo the settlement -- giving her $5,800 a month in spousal support and a chunk of his "Empire" earnings -- on grounds he signed the doc under extreme duress.
