Farrah Abraham Here's a Big Black Friday Deal for Ya!!

11/18/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's ass is going bargain basement, as in $1, for the biggest shopping day of the year. 

Farrah made 2 live appearances on the porn site, CamSoda, this year. She delivered on the first, but pissed off fans the second time when she backed out of the anal scene she promised to do.

The site had to offer refunds, but some marketing genius came up with a plan to recoup the dough. CamSoda will hawk all the videos Farrah's done with them -- streaming or download -- for $1.

That's right, you can now call her "1 Buck Butt!" Just for Black Friday, though. 

 

Simone Biles Blasts Gabby Douglas Don't Victim Shame Aly Raisman!

11/17/2017 4:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:00 PM PT -- Gabby has pulled a near 180, saying she didn't word her reply correctly and "regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable." She's also apologized and says she stands by her teammates.

Simone Biles is publicly attacking her former Team USA gymnastics teammate Gabby Douglas -- and it's all over comments Gabby made insinuating some women invite sexual abuse by the way they dress. 

It all started with Aly Raisman ... their 2016 U.S. Olympic teammate who recently went public with allegations she was sexually assaulted by ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar

Raisman -- who famously posed nude for the ESPN Body Issue -- received hate from people who shot down her story because of the provocative pics. 

Raisman clapped back with a message on social media Friday morning saying, "Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse."

That's when Gabby got involved ... saying:

"However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd."

Biles saw Gabby's comment and went scorched-earth ... saying: 

"Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her."

She continued, "I support you Aly 💕 & all the other women out there!  STAY STRONG.

We reached out to Douglas for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Usher $20 mil Herpes Lawsuit Dismissed

11/17/2017 2:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The lawsuit filed against Usher -- claiming he gave a Georgia woman herpes -- has been dismissed, but there's an asterisk.

Laura Helm filed a $20 million lawsuit against the singer, claiming he had unprotected sex with her and transmitted the disease. She had a problem -- she told someone on a recorded phone call 2 days before the suit was filed that she only had protected sex with Usher.

Helm's lawyer withdrew from the case and Helm got a new attorney, who immediately filed legal docs to dismiss the case. It is, however, dismissed without prejudice, "with intent to refile." It's unclear why her lawyer made the move to dismiss.

We reached out to Usher's lawyer, Steve Sadow, but we were not able to reach him. Helm's lawyer had no comment.

Ben Affleck Hot and Bothered After Grilling on Colbert

11/17/2017 11:33 AM PST

This is the face Ben Affleck had after getting GRILLED by Stephen Colbert.

Ben was leaving the 'Late Show' studio Thursday night where he was promoting his new flick, "Justice League." Everything seemed fine and dandy ... until Colbert brought up Harvey Weinstein.

Seems the subject threw off Ben, who then got grilled about his own sexual misconduct. You'll recall Ben apologized for apparently groping a former MTV host in 2003. Another video surfaced showing him in 2004 getting handsy with a Canadian TV host.

The subject's clearly got him heated.

Jameis Winston Allegedly Groped Uber Driver's Crotch ... QB Denies Claim

11/17/2017 9:24 AM PST
Breaking News

Jameis Winston is adamantly denying grabbing a female Uber driver by the crotch during a March 2016 ride despite a complaint the driver made to the company ... but now the NFL is investigating. 

The woman who identifies herself as Kate told BuzzFeed she picked Jameis up from a nightlife area in Scottsdale, Arizona around 2 AM -- and Jameis got in the front passenger seat.

During the ride, Kate says the Tampa Bay Bucs star was out of control -- screaming homophobic comments to pedestrians -- before requesting a stop at a Mexican restaurant. 

While in the drive-thru line to pick up food, Kate says Winston "reached over and put his fingers on my crotch. It wasn't accidental."

Kate says she wasn't just "creeped out" ... "I was frozen."

After the ride, Kate says she filed a complaint with Uber but did not go to police because she feared backlash from NFL fans. 

Winston's camp says the allegations are completely false -- "We categorically deny this allegation. It is our understanding the Uber driver was unable to identify the specific individual who allegedly touched this driver inappropriately. The only reason his name is being dragged in to this is that his Uber account was used to call the ride."

Uber says Jameis has been banned from using the app in the future.  

The NFL has confirmed to TMZ Sports the league is investigating the situation. An NFL rep tells us, "The allegation was shared with the NFL and we have reached out to Uber to request any information they may have."

Elliott Gould Al Franken's a Good Guy 'We All Make Mistakes'

11/17/2017 7:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Elliott Gould doesn't think Sen. Al Franken's career deserves to be sunk by Leeann Tweeden revealing he groped her in 2006 ... because that mistake doesn't define his friend. 

The actor's been tight with Franken long before his political days-- Franken was an 'SNL' writer back when Elliott hosted. Despite the allegations -- many of which Franken admitted and apologized for -- Elliott stood by his friend Thursday night outside Craig's.

His take? Franken's track record should count for something -- which is why Elliott doesn't think the Senator will go the way of Harvey Weinstein.

Jeffrey Tambor Accused of Sexual Harassment Again ... This Time by 'Transparent' Actor

11/16/2017 7:02 PM PST
Breaking News

Jeffrey Tambor is once again facing allegations of sexual harassment ... and once again by a person who happens to be transgender.

Fellow "Transparent" actor Trace Lysette -- who plays Shea on the Amazon TV series -- claims Tambor made lewd, sexually suggestive and unwelcome remarks to her several times, and once pressed up against her during a break in filming in a "sexually aggressive manner" ... according to Deadline.

Tambor -- who's already being investigated by Amazon for harassment claims made by his ex-assistant -- admits he can be "ill-tempered" and a difficult person to work with, but denies any predatory behavior.

Tambor also apologized, saying ... "I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone. But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.”

Lysette has reportedly not filed an official complaint with Amazon, but the company plans to add the new allegations to its current investigation.

It's interesting timing -- reports Thursday suggested "Transparent" writers were prepping for next season to be without Tambor, even before claims made by Lysette.

11/16/2017 2:16 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tony Gonzalez says he was never sexually harassed in an NFL locker room ... but he's glad all the Hollywood scandals are putting athletes on notice.

"Stuff has changed. You gotta be more careful, and it's a good thing," Tony told TMZ Sports.

Gonzalez told us he's only experienced "guys in the shower messing around" ... and says all his former teammates knew not to cross that line. 

But even though the future Hall of Famer didn't have to deal with any inappropriate hazing himself, he's fully behind the cultural shift in acting and in sports.

Good to hear that from Tony -- considering he's serious about a career on the big screen.

Harvey Weinstein, The Weinstein Co. Sued By Women Who Claim Massive Cover-Up

11/15/2017 7:31 AM PST

The Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein have been slapped with a class action lawsuit, claiming the Company had a long-running practice of isolating and blacklisting Weinstein's alleged victims and covering up his alleged predatory tactics.

The suit was brought on behalf of "all women who met with Harvey Weinstein in person to audition for or to discuss involvement in a project to be produced or distributed by The Weinstein Company." The lawsuit says the women number in the dozens and possibly the hundreds.

The suit purports to represent, among others, Mira Sorvino, Sophie Dix, Emma de Caunes, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Daryl Hannah, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paz de la Huerta.

The suit lists some of the alleged sexual assaults, including a woman Weinstein allegedly met with and ordered to take her dress down and expose her breasts. The suit says when she refused, he angrily said she would never work in this town again. The suit claims Weinstein ended up locking her in a stairwell.

The suit claims TWC and Miramax -- also a defendant -- "has facilitated Weinstein's predatory behavior" employing things like honeypots -- female employees who would lure unsuspecting women up to Weinstein's hotel rooms.

The suit claims TWC had no problems with Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct as long as he was making money for the company.

Steven Tyler Ric Flair's Totally 'Full of Sh*t' Didn't Bang 10,000 Chicks!!

11/15/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Steven Tyler's banged an astronomical amount of groupies over the years -- but even he's calling B.S. on Ric Flair's claim that he got 10,000 chicks to ride "Space Mountain."

We got the Aerosmith legend leaving LAX ... and you can tell he thought The Nature Boy's number was comical -- joking he had him beat before comparing him to rockstar Gene Simmons (who says he slept with 5,000 chicks himself).

But Tyler hit Naitch with a low blow before he rode off into the night, telling TMZ Sports how he really feels -- "that guy's full of sh*t."

As for Steven's number ... sorry, guys -- he was "too busy getting high" to count.

Harvey Weinstein Sued for Allegedly Raping Actress ... At Beverly Hills Hotel

11/14/2017 3:08 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

An actress has just sued Harvey Weinstein, claiming he masturbated in front of her at a swanky Beverly Hills hotel and ultimately raped her.

The actress -- who is listed as Jane Doe in the lawsuit -- says she met Weinstein in 2011 and they attended events over the next few years. She does not describe the nature of the relationship.

She says in 2015 she met Weinstein at the Montage hotel to talk about a job on a show called "Marco Polo." She doesn't say, but presumably this happened in a hotel room. She says he gripped her wrists with one hand while using the other to masturbate in front of her until completion.

She goes on to say in 2016 she met him again at the Montage to "celebrate her upcoming role in 'Marco Polo.'" She says he excused himself, came back out in a bathrobe, grabbed her, threw her on the bed, pulled down her jeans and began orally copulating her. She says she pushed his head off and ordered him to stop. She says he then used his "massive weight and strength" to force himself on her, pushing his penis inside of her vagina without a condom.

She says she never actually got the "Marco Polo" role.

She is suing Harvey Weinstein and The Weinstein Company -- she says the company was aware of his pattern of using the promise of jobs to coerce actresses to engage in sexual acts -- for sexual battery and gender violence.

Weinstein's rep tells us he denies any allegations of non-consensual sex. The rep adds, "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”

Congresswoman Jackie Speier We've Been Working on Sexual Harassment Way Before Weinstein

11/14/2017 2:30 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Congresswoman Jackie Speier says it didn't take Harvey Weinstein to focus her on sexual harassment in D.C. ... but she's still playing her cards close to her vest.

We got the California Representative Tuesday on Capitol Hill, after she announced she knows of sitting members of Congress who have sexually harassed staffers.

Speier, who says she's been working on new rules on the subject since 2014, went so far as to say some of the alleged victims had their private parts grabbed on the House floor. This comes on the heels of a reported "creep list" -- a word-of-mouth roster of male members who allegedly made inappropriate moves on staffers and interns.

No one has named any of the people on the list, nor did Speier reveal the identity of 2 current members to which she referred during her news conference.
