Cardi B & Offset Back in Strip Club ... Throwing Cash Not Fists, This Time

10/8/2018 8:51 AM PDT

Slow clap for Cardi B and Offset -- they're back making it rain on strippers, and this time no drinks or fists were thrown.

The couple headed back to a strip club, Crazy Girls, Sunday night in L.A. ... smacking butts instead of bartenders. It was their first time in a gentlemen's establishment, that we've seen anyway, since Cardi's last visit. Ya know, the one that got her arrested and charged with assault for allegedly ordering a beatdown on strip club bartenders.

Offset was armed with a seemingly endless stack of Washingtons in their VIP section ... and Cardi even got on a pole and started twerking for her man. What's that thing about old habits?

Smart move on Offset's part -- everyone knows the dancers give you way more attention when you have a female companion. Just take a note from Offset, and get ya girl some roses while you're at it. 

Cardi B Arrested and Charged ... Over Strip Club Fight

10/1/2018 8:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

8:54 AM PT  -- Cardi was just officially arrested and charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment. We're told she had a mug shot taken and was fingerprinted. The rapper is scheduled to be arraigned on October 29.

Joe Tacopina, the attorney for the alleged victims, tells us, "She continues to threaten them and clearly thinks her celebrity status is going to get her out of this. But it doesn't matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B ... if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice."

Cardi B will turn herself in to police Monday ... and she will be ordered to appear in court in connection with a strip club fight. 

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ, Cardi will be charged for allegedly ordering an attack on 2 bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens NY. The 2 bartender sisters -- Jade and Baddie Gi -- say Cardi had a long-standing beef with Jade because Cardi believed she had slept with Offset.

Cardi -- who was at the Strip Club because Migos was performing -- came face-to-face with the 2 bartenders and allegedly told her posse to attack them with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device. The 2 women were both hurt, but refused medical attention.

We're told Cardi will likely be charged with 2 misdemeanors -- reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. She will not be arrested when she turns herself in ... she will get a summons to appear in court on the charges.

A source close to Cardi tells TMZ the attack was "spontaneous" and was triggered after someone threw a drink. They say nothing was premeditated.

Stormy Daniels Strip Club Arrest Triggers FBI Corruption Probe

9/29/2018 8:25 AM PDT

The FBI is now involved in investigating possible police corruption in connection with Stormy Daniel's arrest at a Columbus, Ohio strip club.

As we reported, Stormy was arrested in July while she was performing at Sirens strip club after several patrons made physical contact with her. It appeared the vice cops were lying in wait for Stormy.

Fact is ... there was no basis to arrest Stormy because the law under which she was arrested did NOT apply to her since she was not a regular performer at the club. The police chief apologized and launched an internal affairs investigation.

What we're told ... some of the officers were pro-Trump and it looked like a personal vendetta.

Well, now the FBI's Public Corruption Task Force has been called in at the request of the police chief.

The task force includes the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

The vice squad in question has been put on ice during the probe. 

Floyd Mayweather Throws $50k From His Backpack ... At Strip Club

9/2/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

So, Floyd Mayweather walked into a strip club with a backpack filled with $50k cash ... and wanna guess what happened next? 

Yeah, it RAINED in New Jersey!!! 

TMZ Sports has footage of the boxing champ's recent trip to Scores Atlantic City ... where Floyd was spotted throwing massive wads of cash out of his bag while vibin' to Lil Wayne's "Cannon."

Get this ... we're told Floyd threw SO much money, the cleaning crew found thousands of leftover bills all over the place the next morning -- from the ceiling vents to the furniture.

And, if that's not enough money spent, we're told Floyd and his crew ate at Robert's Steakhouse earlier that night ... and bought a $5k bottle of Louis XIII cognac for his table (dude doesn't even drink, he just likes his friends THAT much.)

WYD, Conor?

Zach Smith OSU Strip Club Pal was Tom Herman ... Report Says

8/23/2018 3:15 PM PDT
Breaking News

Zach Smith may have outed Tom Herman as the unnamed Ohio State assistant football coach who accompanied him to a strip club during a 2014 high school recruiting trip ... and it's all on his IG. 

The incident was mentioned in the OSU investigation report into Urban Meyer -- which says Smith "ran up a significant bill at a local strip club along with another OSU football coach" in Florida on May 8, 2014.

Because Smith was on an official OSU recruiting trip -- and at least one high school football coach was also at the club -- Meyer reprimanded Smith and threatened to fire him if it happened again. 

The report did not identify the other OSU coach -- but Smith's Instagram page may hold the clue. On May 7, 2014 Smith posted about being in Florida with Tom Herman.  

Plus, Lettermen Row -- a news website covering Ohio State athletics -- is citing multiple sources confirming Herman was the mystery strip club buddy. 

Unclear if Herman was ever punished for the incident. 

After leaving Ohio State, Herman went on to take the head coaching job at the University of Houston where he had great success. He has since become the head coach at the University of Texas. 

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

Urban Meyer Made Strip Club Rule ... After '14 OSU Recruiting Trip

8/23/2018 6:21 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Ohio State WR coach Zach Smith blew stacks at a strip club with another OSU coach and at least 1 high school coach during a recruiting trip in 2014 ... and afterwards, Urban Meyer threatened his job. 

It's all in the Ohio State investigation report detailing Meyer's history with Smith ... who was fired in July after a series of incidents stemming from domestic violence allegations

In the report, investigators say, "In May 2014, in connection with an out-of-town recruiting trip to Florida, Zach Smith ran up a significant bill at a local strip club along with another OSU football coach and one or more high school coaches."

Smith spent at least $600 in the club -- which investigators say came from "personal funds."

Urban Meyer later learned about the incident and told Smith that, if it happened again, he would be fired.

Meyer also changed up the 2014 coaches manual to include a “morality clause,” telling staff to avoid strip clubs "or venues that would embarrass The Ohio State University."

The revised manual also prohibited coaches from having porn on any university-issued computer, phone, iPad, etc.

Of course, that part is relevant because Smith took penis pics while at the White House on the official Ohio State trip to D.C. to meet President Barack Obama in April 2015. 

He also took explicit pics of himself in various OSU football facilities. 

Unclear why Smith wasn't punished for violating the terms in the 2014 manual. 

Ohio State ultimately suspended Meyer for 3 games for failing to take sufficient management action relating to Zach Smith's misconduct.

V Live Strip Club Crazy L.A. Casting Call Brings Out Twerkers, Acrobats

8/22/2018 7:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's that time of the year again, folks -- when wannabe strippers shoot their shot with V Live America to get some work on a pole ... and damn, this casting call was WILD.

TMZ crashed an open audition for V Live L.A. at OHM Nightclub in Hollywood, where a ton of ladies off the street threw on their thongs and came out to shake it ... and Lord, did they put on a show. There's a lot going on here -- beer bottle butt squeezing, half-naked gymnastics moves, crazy body contortions ... and, yes, some good old-fashioned twerking. 

One lucky dude ended up having up to 3 different women on him at once -- ass in his face and all over his body. Looks comfy for sure ... even on the hardwood floor there. 

This is kinda V Live's thing -- they did it last year in Memphis, and in Chicago the year before that. Those casting calls were pretty bonkers too ... but this takes the cakes.

Le'Veon Bell Needs To Stay Out Of Strip Clubs ... Ex-Steelers Star Says

8/12/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former Steelers star LaMarr Woodley has advice for Le'Veon Bell ... telling TMZ Sports, "No strip clubs" during the holdout!!

Bell's been in a huge feud with Pittsburgh brass over his contract ... and while he's sitting out for more money -- he's spent some time slappin' butt in the booty club.

Woodley -- who was teammates with Bell during the RB's rookie year in 2013 -- is advising Le'Veon to avoid doing that again ... 'cause a big contract is on the line!!

"It's OK to have a little fun," Woodley tells us.

"But, I have to say no strip clubs. Stay out the limelight that way and just work. 'Cause the big deal about to get ready to come."

Good news for Le'Veon ... Woodley says the rap career is still acceptable.

Sorry, LeSean.

Le'Veon Bell Strip Club Booty Slappin' ... During Steelers Holdout

Exclusive Details

Le'Veon Bell is spending his time away from Steelers camp in epic fashion ... turning up with his girlfriend and smackin' a whole lotta butts at a strip club -- and it's all on video.

The Pro Bowl running back is staying away from Pittsburgh practices after he didn't get the contract extension he wanted ... and he's livin' it up in Miami with his GF, Marliesia Ortiz, in the meantime.

The two hit up Rockwell in South Beach on Monday ... where we're told gold bottles of Ace of Spades were flowing to his table all night.

The party didn't stop there ... Bell bounced to a strip club after -- where he got pretty hands-on with some booty ... while Marliesia watched!!

FYI ... Steelers coach Mike Tomlin shaded Bell before his big night out Monday, telling CBS Sports he hopes Le'Veon shows up in better condition than he did after returning from his holdout last season.

We're pretty sure this isn't the conditioning that Mike wanted to see ...

Lil Pump Ca$h Me Outside of Strip Club!!! ... Literally

7/28/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump's clearly tired of the crazy L.A. heatwave ... thus bringing some much needed relief with a burst of rain with Benjamins.

The "Gucci Gang" rapper was at Sam's After Dark strip club in L.A. around 6 AM Thursday when he posted up in the joint's parking lot for what appears to be an impromptu photo shoot. You can see LP -- along with rapper Smokepurpp -- on top of what appears to be a Rolls-Royce, grabbing stacks lined up inside his waistband.

Hard to tell which track's blaring in the background or if they're shooting a new music video, but what's clear ... it's got Pump pumped the hell up because he made the weather outside go from frightful to delightful (if only for a few minutes). 

Stormy Daniels Arrest Evidence Cops Were Trump Supporters ... Reporter Claims

7/26/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Some of the cops who orchestrated Stormy Daniels' Ohio arrest openly revere President Trump ... according to a reporter who says there's proof the bust was political revenge.

Derek Myers is the interim editor-in-chief at the Fayette Advocate who uncovered emails to and from the arresting officer. He tells TMZ ... one involved officer would openly say "Make America Great Again," and another had a Twitter "shrine" to POTUS.

As we reported ... Myers obtained several emails between high-ranking Columbus cops who gathered details about Stormy 2 days before she was scheduled to perform at a strip club there.

Michael Avenatti has claimed all along his client's arrest was really about politics, and Myers says that's more than just a theory.

The Columbus Police Chief said there would be an internal investigation into the officers' motives. We don't know the status of that probe ... we've reached out to the department.

Stormy Daniels Strip Club Arrest Footage Released ... Chaos At Tour Bus

7/18/2018 8:11 AM PDT
Breaking News

8:56 AM PT -- As for the other two strippers -- Miranda Panda and Brittany Walters -- charges against them were dropped too ... the city attorney said in a statement, "After reviewing the charges for each of these cases closely, I’ve determined that the facts of these cases do not meet the elements required to prosecute under this law."

Stormy Daniels stayed calm during her strip club arrest, but new video of the incident shows her team was anything but. 

In footage released by the Columbus Division of Police ... undercover officers swarmed Daniels' tour bus following her show at Sirens strip club. Daniels' security team tried their best to stay by her side during the bust ... and at one point told cops if Stormy was going to jail, they'd go too.

Officers were eventually able to separate Stormy from her team -- after she gave out a few hugs -- and they loaded her into the cruiser. 

As we reported ... Daniels' arrest last week was bogus from the get-go. She was busted for inappropriate touching during her strip show -- but, Ohio law specifically states dancers who don't regularly appear at a club can't be arrested for the crime.
