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

7/31/2018 8:25 AM PDT
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. 

Stormy Daniels Motorboating Not Allowed At Next Strip Club Gig

7/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels better keep her boobs to herself at her next strip club gig, unless she wants more pokey time ... TMZ has learned.

Stormy's scheduled to get on the pole at the Pink Pony in Atlanta on July 22, but the club tells us absolutely NO motorboating will be allowed. We're told Georgia laws prohibit contact of any kind between dancers and patrons, and it will be strictly enforced.

We're told the PP ain't about to risk losing its license, especially on the heels of Stormy's Ohio arrest.

As for other concerns ... the club tells us it always has security when a celeb is in the house, but they're adding a few extra guards for Stormy. We're told there haven't been any threats, but some angry Trump supporters have filed complaints.

As we've seen in recent months, motorboating is Stormy's go-to move while stripping, but that's precisely what got her busted in Columbus. The charges were quickly dismissed because the city's "no touching" statute only applies to strippers who are regulars.

No such loophole in Georgia, so Stormy better stay abreast of her breasts and patrons' faces and hands ... at all times. 

Stormy Daniels No Longer Married According to Arrest Report

7/14/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels didn't file for divorce, as far as we can tell ... which makes it all the more intriguing as to why she told Columbus, Ohio vice cops who arrested her she was no longer married.

We got a copy of the arrest report when Stormy was wrongly busted for motorboating an undercover cop at Sirens strip club in Columbus. Check out question 14 in the biographical info section. Married? The answer -- No.

Stormy married Glendon Miller Crain in January, 2015 ... this according to the marriage certificate obtained by TMZ.  There is no official record that Stormy or Glendon tried to end their marriage ... which makes her answer on the arrest report all the more puzzling.

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tells TMZ his client is indeed married ... but he said he was unaware the arrest report suggests otherwise. 

We'll keep ya posted. 

Stormy Daniels The (Strip) Show Must Go On!!

7/13/2018 6:19 AM PDT
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels didn't let her arrest and potential security concerns ruin a night out for her fans ... hopping onstage and performing a set at a local Ohio strip club.

As we reported, Daniels was arrested Wednesday night at Sirens in Columbus, Ohio after she allegedly motorboated -- something she regularly does in shows -- an undercover cop during a strip show. The charges were later dismissed -- as Stormy wasn't a regular dancer at the club -- and the police chief has apologized for the arrest.

Daniels was supposed to dance again at Sirens Thursday night, but switched venues to Vanity Gentlemen's Club due to security concerns.

Reports say at least 100 people showed up for Stormy's 20-minute dance ... and there was a strict no phones and no touching rule put in place.

Stormy Daniels Police Chief Says We Screwed Up Questions Officers' Motives

7/12/2018 3:15 PM PDT

Stormy Daniels should never have been arrested at a Columbus strip club and the Chief of Police is launching an investigation to determine if the officers' motives were improper.

Chief Kim Jacobs says she will take the heat for the arrest at Sirens strip club ... where Stormy was busted for touching an undercover vice officer during her performance. As TMZ reported, the arrest was bogus because the law only prohibits touching by dancers who perform regularly at a club, and Stormy was a featured guest for only 2 nights.

Chief Jacobs noted a mistake was made, though she was not specific. She went on to say, "While the presence of Vice officers at this establishment is reasonable, the motivations behind the officers' actions will be reviewed internally ..."

The charges against Stormy have already been dismissed, and she's cancelled her Thursday night performance at Sirens ... due to security concerns

Stormy Daniels Cancels Strip Club Gig ... Security Concerns

7/12/2018 3:25 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

5:00 PM PT -- Stormy won't be skipping out on a strip club appearance tonight after all ... she just said she's taking her talents to Vanity Gentlemen's Club in Columbus. She added that the owners of Sirens were "too fearful" to have her back.Stormy Daniels just bailed from night 2 at the Columbus strip club where she was arrested Wednesday night, and her lawyer says there are various reasons why ... including "security concerns."

Michael Avenatti tells TMZ there were a variety of reasons why his client will not return to Sirens. He would not say if Stormy received death threats, but acknowledged there were safety issues.

Avenatti says Stormy wants to perform tonight and is looking for another venue in Columbus.

As we reported, the Columbus Police Chief has fallen on the sword, saying the arrest was improper ... because Stormy didn't violate the law that got her busted. The Chief also says she's reviewing the "motives" of the vice cops who made the arrest.

Michael Avenatti Stormy's Arrest Stinks ... We Might Take the Cops to Court

7/12/2018 2:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Avenatti believes the police in Columbus, Ohio were well aware they had no grounds to arrest Stormy Daniels, but went ahead and did it anyway.

We spoke to Stormy's lawyer shortly after her strip club bust charges were dismissed Thursday. He said it's "ironic" the statute that vindicates her (because she's not a regular dancer at the establishment) is pretty crystal clear ... yet cops couldn't figure it out.

Translation: Columbus police knew what they were doing and targeted Stormy to put her in cuffs ... Avenatti just doesn't know what their motive was ... not yet, anyway.

Stormy's lawyer says they're going to get to the bottom of it, and are exploring her legal options. 

Of course, they still have bigger fish to fry.

Stormy Daniels Strip Club Charges Dismissed

7/12/2018 9:56 AM PDT

Stormy Daniels can chalk this one up as a quickie -- the charges from her Columbus, Ohio strip club arrest have already been dropped.

Prosecutors say the "touching" statute only applies to strippers who "regularly appear" at the establishment. Stormy was merely a featured guest dancer, so she's in the clear.

As we reported ... Stormy was arrested Wednesday night after motorboating an undercover police officer while performing at Sirens. According to police docs, Stormy put both hands on Officer Mary Praither's butt and breasts, and then put her breasts in the officer's face.

A judge has already signed off on the dismissal of charges.

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said the incident reeked of a sting operation. TMZ broke the story ... sources connected with the club tell us the undercover officers waited in the back of the club for Stormy to take the stage, appearing as if they were gunning for her.

However, police say they were there investigating complaints of alleged prostitution and drug activity. They say two other strippers, who were also arrested, were the first offenders -- with one of them motorboating and groping Officer Praither. 

They say Stormy's touchy-feely performance came later -- around 11:30 PM -- and she actually motorboated all 3 undercover cops, not just Praither. After Stormy's performance, she and the other 2 were arrested at the same time.

Stormy Daniels Busted at Strip Club for Motorboatin' Undercover Cop

7/12/2018 3:43 AM PDT

Stormy Daniels was arrested Wednesday night over an incident at a strip club, and it sounds like she got nailed in an undercover operation.

Stormy was performing at Sirens ... a Columbus, Ohio strip club. She was arrested for allowing a patron to touch her in violation of Ohio law. According to the law, only family members can touch a nude or semi-nude dancer. 

That patron was actually Columbus PD's Officer Mary Prather. According to police docs, Stormy put both hands on Officer Prather's butt and breasts ... and then put her breasts in the cop's face. 

In other words ... Stormy was done in by motorboating.

She was booked and released early Thursday morning on a $6,000 bond. 

Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, concedes the patrons did indeed touch his client but he describes it as a "non-sexual way."

Avenatti went on ... "This was a complete setup ... it's absurd that law enforcement resources are being spent to conduct a sting operation." He went on to allege it was a politically motivated arrest.

For the record ... motorboating is kinda Stormy's thing onstage. We got video of her stripping earlier this year in Florida and patrons were all up in her chest, although, touching laws might be more lax there than in Columbus.
