Warren Sapp Big Hole In Vibrator Story

12/14/2017 9:33 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Warren Sapp's got another problem in his sexual misconduct case ... because his version about why he handed out vibrators to women at the NFL Network ain't exactly adding up.

Sapp went on the radio and claimed he has a friend who makes novelty vibrators that look like lipstick -- and when he shared pictures of the devices with the makeup team, they asked him to bring some in ... and he obliged. 

Sapp went to social media Wednesday and posted a photo of the vibrator in question -- called the Womanizer 2Go ... made by a company called Womanizer. 

Problem is ... we're told Womanizer has no relationship with Sapp and never has. One source says the company is confused as to why Sapp would make those claims. 

Anderson Cooper Blame My Assistant ... For Anti-Trump Tweet

12/13/2017 1:43 PM PST

CNN says it's gotten to the bottom of Anderson Cooper's Trump-bashing tweet ... and all signs point to a forgetful assistant.

The mystery was cleared up Wednesday when the network said the message was sent from Cooper's assistant in NYC, while Anderson was in D.C.

CNN says the assistant, who's been on the job for 10 years, left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym, and someone grabbed it and fired off the tweet. He's apparently the only other person besides Anderson with access to the account.

As we reported ... Anderson's verified Twitter account replied to Trump early Wednesday morning -- calling 45 a "tool!" and a "Pathetic loser."

Ted Cruz can relate ... those damn staffers do screw up sometimes

Anderson Cooper It Wasn't Me!!! Hacker Slammed Trump

12/13/2017 6:49 AM PST
Breaking News

Anderson Cooper called President Trump a "Pathetic loser" -- or so about 10 million people thought for an hour Wednesday morning.

The slam on 45 was tweeted from the CNN anchor's verified Twitter account in response to Trump tweeting he knew Roy Moore was going to lose all along. But what seemed like a great Twitter war in the making was not to be.

It was a hack ...according to Anderson.

He says, "just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account." Anderson says he hasn't posted anything in days, and he's trying to find out who's behind the hack.

See? Sometimes the Internet does disappoint.

Jose Canseco I've Been Molested By Women ... Never Complained

12/12/2017 3:49 PM PST
Breaking News

Jose Canseco says the women accusing politicians of sexual misconduct are only complaining because the alleged offenders are "ugly men" ... and now the Oakland A's are distancing themselves from the ex-MLB star. 

Canseco began ranting on Twitter on Tuesday ... saying, "What is going on with all these politicians molesting women I've been molested by several women and never complained."

He continued, "Well I mean I've been beaten by women taken advantage of by women and molested by women I never complain but it was kind of a turn-on."

"I see the difference I guess cuz I was a good-looking guy and these politicians look like a bag of boogers."

But, it was the next line that REALLY pissed some people off ... 

"These women complaining against sexual misconduct are just racist against ugly men."

The comments got back to Jose's former team -- the Oakland A's -- and the organization wasted no time condemning the comments and making it clear they have no relationship with the ex-slugger. 

"We were disappointed to learn of Mr. Canseco's statements," the team said. 

"Mr. Canseco is not an employee of the Athletics and his statements do not reflect the values of our organization or those of our most trusted partners."

Senator Gillibrand Trump is Trying to Silence Me ... With 'Sexist Smear' Tweet

12/12/2017 10:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is firing back at President Trump and vowing to keep fighting him ... on the heels of him saying she'd "do anything" for campaign cash.

We got the U.S. Senator from New York Tuesday morning on Capitol Hill, just a few hours after the President tweeted and called Gillibrand a "total flunky" who had begged him for donations. The shot many call "slut-shaming" came when Trump claimed the Senator "would do anything" for his money.

Gillibrand doesn't seem fazed, and dismissed Trump's tweet as a "sexist smear" -- and suggested he better not hold his breath waiting for her to back down.

Gillibrand called for 45's resignation Monday after Trump's accusers called for Congress to investigate him for sexual misconduct.

Exclusive Details

Chloe Grace Moretz says a man she believes to be mentally ill is stalking her online and in person ... and she needs legal protection.

Chloe requested, and was granted, a restraining order against Terry Daniel Quick -- and in the docs she says he showed up at her house in November to confront her. On another occasion, also in November, she says he followed her and her boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham, to a concert and a club.

She says it's particularly frightening because Quick is bragging on social media about trailing her all over town. He's posted several creepy tweets ... one of which included a picture of real blood, she claims. On some of his social media pages he refers to Chloe as his wife and the "love of his life."

In the docs, she says on November 29 Quick followed her from LAX to her home and tried to gain access.She says he actually rang her doorbell and her brother answered. Chloe's bro told him to leave, and that's when she called 911.

Police responded and arrested Quick, who told cops he was engaged to Chloe.

Quick must now stay 100 yards away from Chloe and have no contact with her, her mother and her brother.

11/30/2017 11:00 AM PST

Al Franken's infamous groping photo briefly co-starred with Zendaya on a movie billboard ... in the name of art. Street art.

The cropped image of Franken reaching his hands out -- over Leeann Tweeden breasts in the original image -- showed up Thursday morning on an L.A. billboard for Zendaya's upcoming movie, "The Greatest Showman."  You can see ... the end result was just creepy.

The billboard, just off the 405 freeway, was Franken-free again by 10:20 AM Thursday. We're sure Zendaya's glad to be flying solo again.

Matt is still featured in old "Today" Facebook and Twitter photos and clips -- so, they're not trying to rewrite history. Not yet, anyway.

Breaking News

Texas Congressman Joe Barton sent nudes and illicit text messages to a woman, and he's apologizing for the graphic image first revealed by a Twitter user.

Barton, a Republican, sent the nude photo showing his penis. The Twitter user censored the image, and also revealed a sext that reads, "I want u soo bad. Right now."

Barton now says, "While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women. Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended."

He adds, "I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down."

The Twitter user who posted the naked shot and graphic text claims to also have several videos of Barton masturbating -- and tagged the Twitter accounts of President Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz. It's unclear if the tweeter is the woman to whom Barton admits sending the photos -- but the person claims he/she is being "harassed" by Barton.

Representative Barton has served in the House for 32 years. He recently announced a re-election bid, but now tells the Texas Tribune he's reconsidering.

Donald Trump LaVar Ball Is 'Poor Man's Don King' ... 'Without the Hair'

11/22/2017 5:51 AM PST
Breaking News

ONLY IN AMERICA!!!!!!

Donald Trump is CONTINUING his war with LaVar Ball -- this time ripping him as the "poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair."

Trump is clearly still pissed over LaVar's CNN interview -- in which Ball refused to thank POTUS for helping get his son LiAngelo Ball and 2 other UCLA teammates out of China after they shoplifted. 

"It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think.."

Trump continued, "LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!"

Trump then switched gears to the NFL -- and suggested the league is considering changing the policy on the national anthem next season. 

"The NFL is now thinking about a new idea - keeping teams in the Locker Room during the National Anthem next season. That’s almost as bad as kneeling! When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart? This issue is killing your league!"

White House: Trump Wasn't Serious About Leaving UCLA Players In China

11/20/2017 1:27 PM PST
Breaking News

Reeeeelax ... Donald Trump's mouthpiece says POTUS was only tweeting "rhetorically" when suggesting he should have left LaVar Ball's son in a Chinese jail. 

Yep. 

Sarah Huckabee Sanders just addressed the media ... and was asked about Trump's tweets in which he said LaVar was "unaccepting" of what he did for LiAngelo Ball and said, "I should have left them in jail."

When questioned at Monday's White House news conference, SHS said, "It was a rhetorical response to a criticism by the father."

"Frankly it didn't seem like the father wanted the President to intervene which I think would've been a sad thing if he hadn't."

She also said Trump was "happy to intervene" ... "I think the President was happy to see the release of these individuals and have them back in the United States."
