Porn star Christy Mack and War Machine were still close enough 20 days ago that they were holding hands in public at an MMA fight.
TMZ obtained the pic taken in Temecula, CA while they were attending the fight ... and their coziness seems to contradict Christy's initial claim that they've been broken up for several months.
Christy's family and friends tell us although the pair "officially" broke up in May ... they still consistently hooked up from time to time. The pic may explain War Machine getting jealous of Christy's new boyfriend Corey Thomas.
What it doesn't do is justify the fugitive's alleged brutal beating of Christy and Corey last Friday.
Proposal To Ban
Shoots Without Condoms in Cali
8/6/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
California may become a condom-mandated state when it comes to porn ... and the stakes involve hundreds of millions of dollars, AIDS, syphllis, gonorrhea and other STDs.
The California State Assembly has just passed a bill requiring condoms in all porn shoots. The author, State Assemblyman Isadore Hall, III, tells TMZ ... it's all about workplace safety. He says STDs are out of control in the porn industry.
Hall cites a UCLA study, which shows 11% of female porn stars who have sex with males who don't wear condoms contracted gonorrhea and 15% tested positive for chlamydia. We've checked and can't find any documented HIV cases in the straight adult porn industry in the last decade.
Porn honchos tell us ... they are fleeing California. Vivid Prez Steve Hirsch tells us ... his company currently does not produce movies in L.A. County -- where there's currently a mandatory condom law. He says the current testing procedures are more than adequate.
One porn exec tells us ... the county has lost around $100 million a year. Fact is ... we checked with the agency that issues permits for porn shoots. 480 permits were issued in 2012. After the condom law passed, the number plummeted to 40 in 2013, and so far in 2014 ... only 30.
Assemblyman Hall says the porn companies are full of BS ... he says they can digitally remove condoms from the flicks and says, "There's an app for that."
Hall's bill has gone to the State Senate.
So we gotta ask ...
Primetime Bangerz Antics
Could Cost NBC Bigtime
8/5/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NBC's primetime special of Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour has the FCC hot on the tail of the Peacock.
The show -- which aired July 6 -- has triggered a slew of complaints with viewers griping the network allowed obscenity on the air. TMZ has obtained some of the complaints, targeting stripper costumes and Miley rolling around in a bed with half-naked men and women.
The stunt that got a bunch of complaints ... Miley grinding against a costumed Abe Lincoln.
The FCC is investigating whether the content violated its rules against broadcasting "sexual or excretory activity."
Worst case scenario ... NBC could be fined.
Yes, I Once Drugged My GF's Mom
So We Could Bang on the Couch
7/28/2014 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Slash was once so desperate to get laid ... he and a girlfriend drugged her mother, and then had sex right next to her while she slept -- and best of all ... he was 13.
The guitar god made the confession when we asked him about the craziest place he's ever banged ... fully expecting some story about life on the road during the Guns n' Roses heyday.
We definitely were NOT expecting this pubescent/criminal tale.
You've gotta hear Slash explain the whole caper, but the take away? In his words, "There's no ridiculous place [to bone] ... if you can get away with it."
The more you know.
'Fifty Shades of Grey' Trailer
Hardcore BDSM Crowd Left Limp
7/28/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The first trailer for mommy porn "Fifty Shades of Grey" might be exciting some lonely fans -- but serious BDSMers aren't ready to peg the movie for success ... because to them it kinda looks like amateur hour in the ole dungeon.
Don't ask how, but TMZ got in tight with some members of the Threshold Society -- a BDSM/leather club in L.A. -- and they say overall reaction to the trailer is ... where's the good stuff???
Threshold's corporate secretary (for reals) Azurell says the buzz from members is there are tons of other books and movies that better reflect their lifestyle -- and based on this first taste ... 'Grey' looks kinda "vanilla."
Azurell adds ... the movie could use more of their specialties -- light bondage, caning, needle play, fire play, and pegging. We're not telling you to Google that last one. Especially at work.
Over at Hollywood's Bar Sinister ... pro dom Feenix says 'Grey' has gotten a rise out of people in their 40s. He says more middle-aged couples are lining up for their loft area. Think VIP ... for people who want a good spanking. Or a bad one.
Seriously, don't look up pegging.
'Housewives' Star Aviva Drescher
My Fake Leg Is NOT A Weapon
... Or A Sex Toy!! (VIDEO)
7/24/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of New York" star Aviva Drescher doesn't have a leg to stand on ... by claiming she never used her prosthetic appendage as a weapon -- and there's video proving she's lying.
We got Drescher outside Sanctuary Hotel in NYC Tuesday night and asked about her EPIC argument on the RHONY season finale ... when she angrily detached her artificial leg and HURLED it toward Heather Thomson.
Drescher claims she wasn't trying to hurt anyone with her prosthetic projectile.
But you gotta see her reaction ... when she discovers some guys get their rocks off ... by watching women who take it off ... their leg, that is.
Gets Inked for Weinergate Anniversary
7/23/2014 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Anthony Weiner scandal just climaxed in the most ridiculous of ways ... Sydney Leathers got a tattoo celebrating the 1st anniversary of her outing the former NY Congressman.
It's the number 23, which ... Sydney tells TMZ ... has a special meaning. It was the 23rd of July when she leaked the Weiner photos to the media ... changing her life and his forever.
Of course, that new life has been dedicated to porn. And now, as all porn stars eventually do, she's going back to college!
A degree in broadcasting you say, Syd? ... Genius.
Naturally, to pay for school she's signed a new 3 skin flick deal.
So it seems the more things change, the more things stay the same.
I believe we can now officially close the book on "As the Leather Turns" for good.
You're welcome America.
Former Employee Says I Masturbated for Him But He Took it Way Too Far
7/4/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Roy Horn's former personal assistant says the Las Vegas legend sexually assaulted him for years ... and although the assistant admits voluntarily doing certain things, he drew the line at oral sex.
According to the police report ... Omar Dominguez-Ramos says he worked for Horn from 2010 to 2013. Dominguez-Ramos claims Horn made unwanted sexual advances from the get go ... claiming Horn would ask him to undress and then touch his nipples, penis and buttocks area.
Dominguez-Ramos told cops Horn repeatedly asked him to perform oral sex, which he refused to do. The former assistant admits he masturbated for Horn, but never had sex with him.
Dominguez-Ramos says in the report ... someone anonymously sent him a CD several weeks ago showing some of the sexual misdeeds Horn allegedly committed against him.
We know cops conducted an investigation … but the statute of limitations has expired for the most serious allegations. Police say now it's just a civil matter.
We called Horn ... so far, no comment.

6/21/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mercedes "MJ" Javid swears she hasn't been photoshopped, she really did drop 20 lbs., and she tells TMZ ... she did it the old fashioned way -- lots and lots of sex ... and some traditional exercise.
The "Shahs of Sunset" star says she's seen all the haters accusing her of doctoring the pics from a recent swimsuit shoot -- but says her real secret is simply banging the weight away.
Best of all ... MJ claims the more pounds she shed, the more sex she had -- and the more sex she had, the more calories she burned. The least vicious cycle ever!
She admits cutting back on hard partying and late-night boozing definitely helped too ... along with hiking, biking, tennis and dodge ball -- but says she's definitely sticking to her sex diet. She says bluntly, "I'm too pretty to be fat!"
Her ego is NOT slimming down.

6/11/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew's profile is now hidden on the site.
We're told Lea and Matthew met on the set of her music video, "On My Way."

Reps for both Lea and Cowboys4Angels had no comment.
Former Disney Honcho
Sued Again by Sexual Assault Accuser
In Bizarre New Case
6/11/2014 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The 31-year-old man who DROPPED his sexual assault case against former Disney exec David Neuman has now refiled the case with some significant changes ... changes that are just plain weird.
Michael Egan held a news conference in April to publicly skewer Neuman, claiming Neuman repeatedly molested him when he was a teenager, at pool parties in L.A. and on vacation in Hawaii.
Egan's lawyer, Jeff Herman, filed the lawsuit in Hawaii because of a forgiving statute of limitations, but then without explanation dropped the lawsuit last week. It probably had a lot to do with the fact that Neuman busted Egan, who signed a sworn declaration in 2003 saying Neuman NEVER did anything inappropriate with him.
But now Egan has filed another lawsuit -- this time dropping all the Hawaii allegations and focusing on allegations of molestation at L.A. pool parties.
In a bizarre move ... Egan doesn't name Neuman in this lawsuit ... he calls him John Doe. But it's clear he's referring to Neuman. The suit refers to Neuman's position at Disney -- there's no doubt it's him.
And get this ... Egan admits he signed that 2003 declaration saying Neuman did nothing inappropriate, but says he signed it "under fear, threats, and duress." The reason that's so weird -- at the very same time Egan signed it, he was on the attack against 3 other men making the same allegations.
Neuman's lawyer has called Egan's tactics a smear campaign and a shakedown of an innocent man.
Former Disney Exec
In Questionable Sex Abuse Suit
6/5/2014 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former Disney Exec David Neuman has been quietly dropped from a sexual molestation case filed by a man who raked him over the coals at a very public news conference.
Michael Egan -- now 31 -- filed the suit against Neuman in April, claiming Neuman was part of a Hollywood sex ring repeatedly preying on Egan at pool parties, who was 15 at the time. Egan's lawyer, Jeff Herman, held a news conference where he and Egan attacked Neuman and others.
But Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, filed legal docs blowing Egan's claim out of the water, producing a sworn declaration from Egan back in 2003 in which Egan said he "never had any kind of physical contact" with Neuman that was sexual and that Neuman "never acted inappropriately."
Egan and Herman did not hold a news conference to announce the dismissal of the lawsuit. We spoke with Herman but he had no comment.
Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, told the Hollywood Reporter, "We will hold accountable those who wrongly created the hurt and damage by making outrageous, unfounded assertions that cannot be undone."
Egan has not dropped his cases against 2 other Hollywood big wigs, but this isn't going to help his credibility.
Larry Flynt's Daughter
Sexual Harassment Claims
6/5/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Larry Flynt's daughter Theresa is off the hook in her sexual harassment case ... in fact, TMZ has learned her accuser has taken back all his claims.
As TMZ first reported, Steven Prescott, Hustler's West Coast District Manager, sued Flynt and Hustler 2 years ago ... claiming Theresa repeatedly harassed him through sexual text messages, unwanted touching, grinding, hugging, caressing and leering.
But now we've learned the case has been dropped, and in a joint statement to TMZ ... Flynt and Prescott said he was retracting "all allegations of sexual harassment" -- and he apologized for what both sides now refer to as a "misunderstanding."
Hard to out hustle a Flynt.
