Ex 'Smallville' Star Arrested for Sex Cult Ties

4/20/2018 12:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

2:45 PM PT -- Mack entered a plea of not guilty and was ordered detained by the judge. There will be a hearing to determine her bail on Monday. 

12:25 PM PT -- Mack has been indicted on sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and conspiracy to commit forced labor charges. According to the legal docs ... Mack recruited and persuaded young women to join a secret organization called "DOS" or the "Vow" under the guise of a women's empowerment group.

Mack allegedly forced women into sex slavery and took "collateral" from them in the form of compromising photos and recorded confessions of past crimes in order to blackmail them into staying in DOS for life.

According to the docs ... Mack directed the women to have sex with Raniere and required them to remain celibate, not masturbate and grow out their pubic hair to please Raniere. Mack also allegedly made the DOS slaves participate in "readiness" drills, which required them to respond to their masters anytime -- day or night.

The women were allegedly sleep-deprived and starved to the point of their menstrual cycles stopping. All of this is believed to have gone down between February 2016 and June 2017.

Brooklyn federal prosecutors are recommending Mack's bail be extremely high, because they believe she's a flight risk with considerable ties in Mexico. 

If convicted, Mack faces between 15 years and life in prison.

Allison Mack -- best known for playing Chloe Sullivan on "Smallville" -- has been arrested for her connection to the case involving the alleged leader of a sex cult called Nxivm.

The actress was arrested by the FBI, according to NYC law enforcement sources, and is due to appear in federal court in Brooklyn Friday. It's unclear what charges she is facing so far.

As we reported ... Mack was on the scene last month in Mexico when cops took Keith Raniere into custody in Puerto Vallarta, where he fled last year. He co-founded a purported self-help group called Nxivm ... which authorities now believe is a cult that forces women into sex slavery -- after they're branded with his and Mack's initials.

Mack is believed to be second in command to Raniere, who was extradited to the U.S. to face charges for sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor. 

Donald Trump Putin Bragged About Russian Hookers ... According to Comey Memo

4/19/2018 7:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump said Vladimir Putin boasted to him about the quality of hookers in his country ... this according to one of James Comey's memos.

Several media outlets have obtained the memos by the ex-FBI Director, and one of them is already adding spice to the Mueller investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election ... or at least rumors involving Trump and hookers.

In the memo, Comey claims POTUS said Russia's Prez told him ... "We have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world."

So far, no further context to the memo ... so it's unclear why Putin would tell Trump that, or why Trump would tell Comey about the alleged convo. One thing that is clear ... the GOP House members' request for Comey's memos just got way more interesting.

Scott Baio's Costar Josie Davis Denies Nicole Eggert's Sexual Assault Claims

4/19/2018 6:04 PM PDT

Scott Baio's getting some reinforcement from former costar Josie Davis over claims made by Nicole Eggert saying Scott forced Josie to remove her pants when she was just 13.

Eggert was going back and forth with Baio fans on Twitter Wednesday, and at one point said, "Ask Scott Baio why he demanded Josie Davis pull her pants down when she was 13..." Eggert later deleted the tweet but not before Davis got wind of it.

Josie -- who was on "Charles in Charge" -- just came to Scott's defense, calling the allegation completely false. She continues, "I only had a positive and professional relationship with him."

A post shared by JOSIE DAVIS (@josiedavis) on

Eggerts new claims are among a string of bad blood between the two. Most recently, Nicole, Alexander Polinksy and attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference where Polinsky claimed Scott had exposed himself and called Polinsky a "f****t" when he was just 11 years old. 

Scott's rep, Brian Glicklich tells us, "From the beginning, Nicole's inconsistent stories have proven her claims to be untrue. Now she has tripped over her words once again, and it is time to recognize this charade for what it is. Scott is profoundly grateful to Josie Davis for her integrity and decency."

Karen McDougal Settles National Enquirer Suit ... Free to Cash in on Trump!!!

4/18/2018 3:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump ... and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o' money off it.

McDougal had sued the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, over a non-disclosure agreement she signed with them in 2016. She got $150k and some promotional perks, and the Enquirer got her exclusive story about the 2006 affair with Trump. She sued to get out of the deal.

Well, they reached a settlement ... according to the New York Times, and is now allowed to talk all she wants about her Trump relationship. You'll recall, McDougal sat down with Anderson Cooper last month for a CNN special.

So, why does the settlement matter? It's pretty clear based on the terms, which include American Media getting $75k of any future profits Karen makes off selling the Trump story.

Start the countdown to Karen's tell-all book hitting stores -- but ya gotta wonder what's left for her to reveal. The NYT says she also gets to keep her $150k fee.

Stormy Daniels 1,500 Tips Pour in for Suspect Sketch

4/18/2018 11:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels' team has been flooded with tips on who her threatening mystery man might be less than 24 hours after she revealed the sketch, but she can't say she's that much closer to finding him.

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tells TMZ her legal team has received well over 1,500 tips on potential leads for ID'ing Stormy's alleged perpetrator. However, he says they've only deemed a couple hundred or so credible enough to pursue.

Avenatti wouldn't elaborate on what differentiated credible versus non-credible tips -- but we can take a guess. TONS of people took to Twitter Tuesday after Stormy revealed the sketch on "The View" to compare it to a bunch of celebs ... most notably, Tom Brady. Some even think it looks like Stormy's husband.

As for the legit leads ... Avenatti says Stormy's team has dedicated 40-60 man hours so far running them down. He says they have people on the ground in Vegas, CA and NY.

For the record ... law enforcement sources in Vegas tell us authorities there have not received any calls about the potential identity of Stormy's mystery man, and they're not investigating the matter.

Stormy Daniels This is the Guy Who Threatened Me To Back Off Trump

4/17/2018 8:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels is now revealing a sketch artist's rendering of the mystery man who allegedly threatened her to back off Donald Trump.

The ex-porn star was on "The View" when she revealed the composite she and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, recently had done based on her memory of the 2011 incident. You'll recall she says the man approached her in 2011 and told her to "Leave Trump alone" and to "forget the story" ... or else.

Stormy told Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes" that the threat came immediately after she'd spoken to In Touch magazine about her sex romp with Trump. She claims the man also threatened her then-infant daughter, saying ... "It'd be a shame if something happened to her mom." 

As for the sketch itself, Stormy's memory is he was between 5'9" and 6' ... and "lean but 'fit.'" He also bares a striking resemblance to Tom Brady ... at least the sketch does.

Too Short D.A. Rejects Rape Case

4/16/2018 3:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Too Short won't face any criminal charges after a woman accused him of rape ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office tells TMZ ... it's rejected the case, citing insufficient evidence. TMZ broke the story ... Teana Louis sued the rapper claiming he sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions between June and October of 2016.

Too Short was adamant Teana conjured up the whole thing just to get into his pockets.

The D.A. says there wasn't enough evidence to show she didn't consent to their sexual encounters. 

Stormy Daniels Crashes Cohen's Court Hearing ... Troll Move of the Year

4/16/2018 11:24 AM PDT
Breaking News

1:00 PM PT -- Sean Hannity just responded on his radio show, "The Sean Hannity Show," denying that Michael Cohen ever represented him. He also tweeted that he "assumed those conversations were confidential."

11:52 AM PT -- Cohen's lawyer just revealed in court FOX News host Sean Hannity is Cohen's previously unnamed client.

Stormy Daniels ripped a page right out of "The Godfather: Part II" as she showed up in court to stare down President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Cohen has a hearing Monday in New York to discuss how he feels federal prosecutors should handle documents seized by the FBI after a raid on his office and residence -- especially docs he claims would violate attorney-client privilege if improperly reviewed.

Trump's guy wants a judge to allow him and his team to review the seized docs first so they can single out paperwork they want protected from scrutiny. Trump's own team also reportedly filed docs asking to be allowed to review any seized evidence relating to the Prez.

Oh, and Cohen's asking to keep a third client of his anonymous -- his other 2, which he says received serious legal services, are Trump and GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy ... the latter of whom had Cohen pay a Playboy model $1.6 million after she claimed Broidy knocked her up.

As you might recall ... Cohen admitted to paying Stormy $130k ... which she says was intended to keep her quiet about an alleged affair she claims she had with Trump.

Needless to say, Stormy's presence was probably (most definitely) intended as huge troll move to get under Cohen's skin. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, said she wasn't there to provoke ... but nobody's really buying that, right?

Stormy Daniels Trump has No Reason to Delay Lawsuit

4/16/2018 10:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels has just filed legal docs responding to Donald Trump's request to put her lawsuit on ice.

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, says the case should go full steam ahead for 3 reasons.

  -- He says neither Trump nor Michael Cohen have submitted declarations explaining why going to trial would be unfair to them.

  -- Avenatti says Cohen, who has suggested his 5th Amendment rights might be compromised, has made a number of statements since the FBI raid, so he can't be afraid of speaking out.

  -- He says Trump is going after Stormy for $20 million, and it's unfair to make her live in limbo under those circumstances. 

Azealia Banks Claims She was 'Lowkey' Raped ... On Since-Deleted IG Posts

4/15/2018 11:25 AM PDT

Azealia Banks was breaking down and sobbing on her Instagram story Saturday night, claiming she'd been sexually assaulted ... and threatening to quit music over it.

In since-deleted Instagram videos posted to the NYC rapper's Story, Azealia can be heard crying over being "low key" raped by a man she claims pressured her into sex.

In the posts -- which were captured by a third party and posted online -- she starts off with a disclaimer saying she fells "like dirt." She also partially blames herself for the alleged rape, and goes on to threaten deleting her social media accounts until she's okay again.

Azealia was clearly affected by the incident -- the details of which are left ambiguous for now. She doesn't say where this happened, but presumably it occurred Saturday night. She also doesn't name the alleged perpetrator. 

You never see her face ... only her voice, which at one point says someone "got the best of me." She eventually asks someone to come pick her up -- but the posts were later deleted off her account. She did, however, allude to roofies in later posts ... and added she was "good" from the night before and that her show on Sunday was still on. 

It's unclear where she'll be performing tonight.

Sarah Silverman Real Reason Trump's Pissed About 'Golden Showers' ...

4/13/2018 8:03 AM PDT

Sarah Silverman has her own theory on why she thinks President Trump is so worried about the golden showers dossier referenced in James Comey's new book ... and it's got nothing to do with Melania.

We got Sarah leaving Craig's Thursday night in WeHo and straight-up asked her why she thinks 45 was so upset over the so-called Christopher Steele dossier, which claims Trump watched prostitutes urinate on a hotel mattress "as a way of soiling the bed."

Comey wrote in his book claiming Trump ranted to him "if there's even a one percent chance my wife thinks that's true, that's terrible." Silverman thinks Trump was trying to cover up, but not because of Melania. Nyet! 

Paige VanZant Reveals Horrific Gang Rape In High School

4/10/2018 6:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

UFC star Paige VanZant says she was gang raped in high school by a bunch of boys who got her drunk and assaulted her when she couldn't defend herself.

The 24-year-old described the incident and the impact it had on her life in her new book, "Rise: Surviving the Fight of My Life."

"They move me around ... They change my position. I fail each time I try to resist, my limbs like wet cement on my body, my brain a heavy fog. I am awake and conscious, but my body feels dead."

"I know what is happening but can do nothing to stop it. I have no voice or choice but to submit and pray that it ends soon."

It's unclear if VanZant went to the police. We're trying to find out.

Paige says the bullying she experienced after the rape was unbearable -- and led to her changing her last name from Sletten to VanZant because the kids at school nicknamed her "Slutton." Her family ultimately moved from Oregon to Nevada to give her a fresh start. 

PVZ told MMA Fighting she's sharing all this now because she wants to be an advocate for anti-bullying ... and help let others know they're not alone.
