0617-bear-grylls-marshan-lynch-instagramMarshawn Lynch just took the whole "Beast Mode" thing to another level -- surviving among WILD ANIMALS to tape an episode of Bear Grylls' survival show. 

The ex-NFL star touched down in what appears to be Corsica -- to spend 48 hours surviving in the wild for an upcoming episode of 'Running Wild.'

The good news for Lynch -- they seem to have some serious personal security -- courtesy of the French Foreign Legion (pictured above). 

Lynch Snapchatted some of the scenery -- including some cool shots from the chopper.

Exclusive Details

Anthony Kiedis stumbled into the opportunity to play a real life hero -- for a panicked mom and her unconscious child -- and the rock star knocked it out of the park.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman says it went down while he was shooting that "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden that everyone's talking about this week.

Anthony described the insane scene when they stopped for a break and suddenly a woman holding a baby ran out of her house screaming, "My baby can't breathe!" 

Check out the clip ... AK makes it sound like it was no big deal, but ... IT'S A BIG DEAL!

Witnesses tell us the mom was beyond grateful, and seemingly had NO IDEA a famous singer saved her child's life. Not that it matters.

By the way, Anthony's CPR skills? Honed as a surfer and as a dad.

6/16/2016 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616-kim-kardashian-oj-simpson-tmz-getty-02Kim Kardashian is adamant her father did NOT use a Louis Vuitton bag to smuggle a murder weapon or bloody clothes out of O.J. Simpson's home ... claiming she personally inspected it with her own eyes. 

Kim's dad, Robert Kardashian, was pictured with the bag the day after Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman's bodies were discovered -- and there were all sorts of conspiracy theories that Robert took it from O.J.'s home to help him get rid of the evidence. 

0616-robert-kardashian-duffle-bag-oj-simpson-TWITTER-01But Kim says it's just not true, telling GQ: 

"I know people said at the time that he [joined Simpson's defense team] so he couldn't be called as a witness, because he had that Louis Vuitton bag that supposedly had the [murder] weapon and stuff like that ... But that bag was sitting at my dad's house."

"I remember I went through it. The news was like, ‘Where is this Louis Vuitton bag?’ And I'm like, ‘Oh, it's upstairs.'"

GQ: Did you really go through it?

Kim: "Totally."

GQ: What was in it?

Kim: "Just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes. Just random stuff. I'm pretty sure it's, like, still in -- probably in my dad's storage."

By the way, Kim also says she LOVED FX's 'The People v. O.J. Simpson' -- and praised David Schwimmer's portrayal of her father

"There were times I was watching and I was like, 'Oh s***, this is dead-on ... 'That looks like my dad, it feels like my dad.' It was eerie to watch sometimes."

Breaking News

0614-omar-mateen-sitora-yusufiy-myspace-getty-01Omar Mateen's ex-wife is dancing around the subject, but her fiance says it flat out -- all the signs pointed to Mateen being gay ... or at least struggling with the fact he was gay.

Amid reports the Orlando mass murderer had been to Pulse nightclub multiple times ... Sitora Yusufiy and her current fiance, Marco Dias, were asked by a Brazilian reporter if Mateen was gay. Dias said Sitora believed Omar had "homosexual tendencies."

Dias also said Sitora told him she witnessed Mateen's father calling him gay several times.

Dias claims the FBI told Sitora to keep mum about Mateen's homosexuality in interviews with "American media" -- which might explain her Monday night appearance on CNN. Sitora said when she and Mateen married in 2009 he "confessed to me about his past ... and he very much enjoyed going to clubs."

She also says there were "pictures of him" -- but paused dramatically when asked if he was gay. Check it out ...

He was close friends with Michael Jackson after the pop star saw him perform. Michu was reportedly a regular at Neverland Ranch, present during MJ's courtship to Lisa Marie and even knew Michael's kids.

Corden and the show's producers probably handled it the best way possible, under the circumstances -- addressing the horrific events head-on, while vowing ... "Hate will never win."

Sylvester Stallone Powerlifted My Show Idea! Trainer Sues Over 'Strong'

6/10/2016 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0610-sylvester-stallone-strong-show-stolen-TMZ-01Sylvester Stallone's training and weight loss show, "Strong" was jacked from the mind of a personal trainer ... according to the suit the guy just filed.

Robert Fletcher says he created a show called "America's Next Great Trainer" and shopped it around Hollywood in 2014. He says he sent his pitch materials to Stallone's publicist, and also to agents at William Morris Endeavor ... which reps Stallone.

Fletcher thinks it's no coincidence that in early 2016 he started hearing about "Strong" -- the NBC show that lists Sly as one of its executive producers.

"Strong" features male and female trainers competing in various physical challenges -- and in his suit, Fletcher says that's almost a carbon copy of his show idea.

He says it's also fishy that one of the "Strong" trainers is a guy named Todd Durkin. Fletcher says Durkin was attached to 'ANGT' ... but went radio silent in 2015.

He's suing Stallone, NBC, Durkin and other "Strong" producers for at least $7 mil.
