NBA's Stephen Jackson

I'm Still Bangin' My Estranged Wife

... So Call Off Divorce!

2/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0223_stephen-jackson_renata_instagramIf you're still intercourse'n ... there's no divorce'n -- so says ex-NBA star Stephen Jackson ... who's asking a judge to throw out his wife's divorce petition because they're still knockin' boots like a married couple. 

It's one of the strangest legal docs we've ever seen ... Jackson says the judge should NOT grant his wife Renata a divorce because he believes she's just trying to score a prenup payout ... when in actuality, they're still very much a couple. 

FYI -- Jackson says Renata's payout under the prenup is based on his net worth at the time she filed for divorce in 2013  ... and since he was still playing in the NBA at the time, the payout would be significantly larger.

But in new docs filed in state court in Georgia, Jackson says he can prove his marriage wasn't dead then ... and it isn't dead now ... because he's still banging his wife on the regular.  

In fact, Stephen says he often still takes her on fancy vacations to places like the Bahamas, Cancun and Jamaica ... and presumably bangs her there too. 

Which leads to this explanation Stephen included in new court docs -- "Despite filing for divorce, [Renata] continued her relationship with [Stephen] in an effort to 'have her cake and eat it, too.'"

We can't imagine this case is going to have a happy ending for Jackson -- because if he gets his wish, he's still gonna have a pissed off wife on his hands. And if he loses, he's gonna have to cut a big, fat check. 

At least he's still getting laid.

... Cops Say

Warren Sapp told police he paid $600 for oral sex from 2 prostitutes ... and recorded one of the sex acts on his cell phone ... this according to the police report. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Sapp was arrested on Feb 2 in Phoenix for soliciting prostitution following an alleged incident at a hotel. 

According to the police report, Sapp claims the whole situation came to be ... after he met two women in the hotel bar who claimed to be strippers. 

Sapp reportedly offered the women -- a 23-year-old and a 34-year-old -- $300 each in exchange for a sex act. 

According to the report, the women went to the room and began dancing for Sapp -- who threw $100 bills at them. 

At one point, Sapp says he received oral sex from the 23-year-old ... who was wearing a Seahawks jersey ... and recorded it on his cell phone.  

For some reason, cops say he SHOWED them the video. 

There's more ... cops claim Sapp told investigators that the 23-year-old began asking for more cash for sex -- and that's when things started to unravel. 

Sapp told cops he refused to pay more cash for sex -- and says the woman became "irate" and spit in his face. 

"At one point, she used Warren's phone to call security to his room," the report says. 

The woman told cops she grabbed her stuff and was going to leave when Sapp grabbed her by the arms and threw her into the hallway ... knocking her and the other woman down to the ground. 

The 23-year-old told cops, "I do what I do, but that doesn't give him the right to put his hands on me."

Sapp is due in court on Monday -- if convicted on the prostitution charge, he faces a minimum of 15 days in jail ... and could do up to 6 months.

Lolo Jones

Boycott 'Fifty Shades'

God Would Not Approve

breaking news

0217_lolo_jones_50shades_TMZLolo Jones -- U.S. Olympian and self-proclaimed virgin -- says "Fifty Shades of Grey" is an abomination ... and people should boycott the movie because it glamorizes unholy sex. 

Jones -- who's also a devout Evangelical Christian -- went to Twitter and wrote, "Funny how some people think there's nothing wrong with 50 shades of Grey. God didn't create sex for that purpose."

She added, "Watch another movie."

Jones then explained her stance ... saying the movie's hypersexual plot makes people feel that sex for pleasure is the answer to emotional pain.

"Some ppl medicate pain by being more and more physical to where if they are ever alone they can't feel any peace," Jones wrote. 

The tweet is in direct contrast to Russell Wilson, another devout Christian who says it's not only OK to see the movie ... but admits he took in a screening last week and said he thought it was "great."

Bruce Jenner

Transgender Community Pissed

Come out Already!

2/7/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner TransgenderPeople in the transgender community are angry at Bruce Jenner for packaging his announcement he's becoming a woman into a TV show, saying he's more interested in money than setting an example.

Zoey Tur, a leader in the L.A. transgender community, tells TMZ Live there's a lot of anger because they have no real role models now and here is a world class athlete who could literally save lives by way of example but is now deep in the TV game, exploiting the announcement.

Tur, formerly famed CBS helicopter pilot Bob Tur who shot the Reginald Denny beating, says, "This is a civil rights battle. This is not about selling TV shows."

Tur says the suicide rate for transgenders is enormous -- 6 times the national average, yet Bruce is angling to roll his announcement out on season 10 of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and then on his own docuseries.

Zoey says simply, "How much money do you need?"

'All About Sex' Bosses

Yeah, We're Gonna Need to

Get Back Those Vibrators

1/31/2015 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
013015_lipstick_vibrator_launchTaking your work home with you, when your work is sex toys ... is a major dil-don't -- a lesson the staff of TLC's "All About Sex" just learned.

Sources tell us producers got a huge box of vibrators delivered to their office 2 weeks ago in preparation for an upcoming episode -- but a day after the toys arrived ... they all vanished.

We're told producers had one not-so-mysterious explanation -- curious employees swiped 'em. So, bosses called a full staff meeting, and asked for the immediate return of the toys.

Imagine that awkward convo ... and even more awkward -- they got back 2 items! We're guessing/hoping the mini vibrator and kegel balls set we're unopened.

Anyway, watch the clip ... they made do with what they had, and the mini vibe (used or not) was a big hit. As for the future -- we're told producers are keeping all toys under lock and key.

Oooh, bondage.

Cops in Arizona wanna make sure ... if you're scoring during Super Bowl week, you better not be paying for it -- and that's why they've busted 7 women for prostitution in the past 48 hours. 

Law enforcement in Maricopa County tell us they're expecting a major increase in prostitution over the next few days -- with a reported 300,000 visitors flocking to town for the big game. 

We're told law enforcement is setting up several sting operations targeting prostitution in the area of the stadium -- and over the past 2 days, they've already busted 7 women.  

Phoenix is definitely more sexually charged than usual this week -- as we previously reported, Tinder use in the area is through the friggin' roof.

Viral Sorority Chick

'C*** Punt' Returns ...

My F-Bombs Are Getting Published

EXCLUSIVE
Delta Gamma Email Author
The sorority chick who went viral for threatening to "c*** punt" her sisters is now being paid to write obscenities in a book ... and if you thought she'd tone things down -- YOU WERE WRONG!

TMZ has learned Rebecca Martinson -- who famously blasted her Delta Gamma sisters in a 2013 email that leaked online -- consulted on an upcoming book by Taylor Bell titled "Dirty Rush" ... and the foreword she wrote is filled with f-bombs. 

A few select excerpts:  

- "This book tells it like it f****** is. You won't find anything in here about how all sorority girls are vacuously stupid."

- "And you sure as f*** won't read anything about how a sorority girls' sole purpose in life is to be perpetually drunk and do the spread eagle wasted for frat bros." 

She also helped the author make the dialogue authentic ... peppering in a few real life experiences of her own  -- like the time she had sex wearing a tampon.

We'll spare you the details. Trust us on this one.

Chris Brown

Shuts Down Porn Star

Who Posted Junk Pics

1/14/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Chris Brown Porn StarChris Brown doesn't want his junk -- or even his alleged junk -- spread all over the Internet ... so he had his legal team shut down the Twitter page of a porn star who tried to do just that. 

Kagney Linn Karter went on a Twitter assault a few days back aimed at CB ... claiming he paid her $2,500 to be his escort. Kagney says CB thought the deal included sex, and when she refused to sleep with him he began bullying her online.  

Karter responded with a series of angry tweets, saying things like, "I WILL NEVER F*** A WOMAN BEATER EW DISGUSTING" and "HE IS PURE EVIL :(." 

But the tweet de résistance came when she posted photos of a penis which she says was attached to Brown, writing, "i can slap bitches now with chris browns d*** on my timeline all day say some SLICK S*** **pulls out CBs d*** WHAP." Poetry, ain't it?

But the pic and all the Brown tweets are now gone -- as well as everything she tweeted -- because our sources say CB's legal team got her Twitter account suspended.

Twitter policy doesn't bar all nudity, but it draws the line when a user violates someone else's privacy with graphic pics.

Perhaps this is what CB meant all along when he said ... these hoes ain't loyal.

No word yet if she'll accept ... but she could definitely squeeze one in before "Sharknado 3."

Michael Phelps

Alleged 'Ex-Girlfriend' Is

Ready for Her Porno Close-Up

12/22/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
121914_taylor_chandler_launchThe formerly intersex woman who claims she was nailing Michael Phelps ... is on the verge of getting nailed in her first porno ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Taylor Lianne Chandler is in Hollywood fielding an offer from Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch -- who tells us he wants her to star in one of those ever popular porn parodies.

Taylor made headlines last month when she claimed she and Michael dated after meeting on Tinder. You'll recall ... Taylor was born with male and female organs, but says she's since had surgery. 

We're told the proposed porn would be loosely based on their alleged relationship. Think, "When Harry Met Sally" ... with way more nudity. And real sex.

We got Taylor on her way into Vivid HQ, and she told us she's still in the "wine and dine me" stage of negotiations. As for compensation ... she's more interested in back end, than getting huge money up front.
