NFL's Jeremy Lane I Wasn't Drunk ... DUI Arrest Is B.S.

1/15/2018 11:50 AM PST
Breaking News

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane says he only blew a .03 before he was arrested for DUI in Washington this weekend -- and is now questioning why he was taken into custody in the first place. 

"A fail is a 0.08 right? I blew 0.03," Lane tweeted (and then deleted) ... "Why was still arrest? I'll leave it at that." He included an emoji of a dark-skinned person possibly alleging race was a factor. 

He continued to engage with fans who wanted to know more. 

One person asked why he agreed to take a breathalyzer at all -- he replied, "Either way you go you still to jail that makes you look guilty. I had nothing to hide so I did it."

Another person accused Lane of testing positive for weed. He replied, "Lol oh I took weed test now?"

As we previously reported, Lane was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning. Cops have still not released details about the incident. 

'Handmaid's Tale' Star Trump Axing UK Trip A Good Call (Could've Made Better Call)

1/13/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Handmaid's Tale' star O-T Fagbenle believes protesters would've showed up in droves if Donald Trump hadn't canceled his visit to London this week amid fears of mass protest, but the call won't help improve Trump's rep in the UK.

O-T, who plays Elizabeth Moss' husband on the dystopian series, is a Londoner himself, and when we got him at LAX Friday he gave us the rundown -- well, more like a laundry list -- of why so many Londoners are pissed off with Trump. Unsurprisingly, it starts with 45's Twitter.

Trump and his cabinet should take notes from O-T, especially when he talks about how Trump can regain some of the UK's respect.  

Sarah Silverman Why I Paid My Troll's Medical Bills

1/12/2018 7:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Silverman is able to look past the conduct of a man who went on social media and called her a "c***" ... she says because the poor guy is suffering with no financial ability to ease the pain. 

We got the comedian at LAX Thursday and asked why she decided to pay the man's medical bills. Her answer is moving and awesome. Turns out the man suffers from excruciating back pain, has no insurance and no means to relieve his agony caused by 5 herniated discs.

Sarah had enlisted her 12.4 million Twitter followers to find medical help for the man, but ultimately paid it herself.

Bella Thorne's BF Defends Mudslide Tweet ... Back Off, Rob Lowe!

1/12/2018 7:29 AM PST

Bella Thorne's bf is leaping to defend what might seem indefensible, and demanding Rob Lowe back off his girl ... despite her totally tone deaf comment about the deadly Montecito mudslides.

Bella's dating rapper Mod Sun, the guy she was trying to get to when she ignorantly tweeted about being inconvenienced by the mudslides blocking the 101 freeway. Rob subsequently called her out because she clearly knew nothing about the 17 people who'd been killed in the disaster.

Mod thinks Rob is guilty of shaming Bella, and went after the actor.

BTW ... looks like Bella eventually got to Mod's show. Whew!

James Franco Accuser Defends Tweet About Ruining People's Lives

1/12/2018 1:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of the women accusing James Franco of sexual assault is blasting critics who have latched on to a comment she made ... that she likes to ruin lives.

Violet Paley has claimed Franco forced her head into his lap while his penis was exposed. She told the L.A. Times she and Franco were in a consensual, sexual relationship when they were sitting in a car and he pressured her into performing oral sex on him -- something she had not done to him before. Paley, an aspiring filmmaker, says, "The power dynamic was really off."

Franco has said the allegation is not true, but would not elaborate. 

Paley has some questioning her veracity based on this tweet:

Paley tells TMZ, "I use twitter to make jokes most of the time. It was clearly a joke." She went on, "I'm sorry if I offended anyone and I think most people know it was a joke and the people milking it are Trump-like bot trolls so I'm not deleting it and letting their psychotic twist on a dumb joke win."

Donald Trump 'Stable Genius' Is a Merch Windfall

1/12/2018 1:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The true "stable genius" might not be President Trump ... instead it's the people cashing in on 45's latest catchphrase.

According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, 3 people have already applied for rights to slap "stable genius" all over apparel. Problem is ... only one can own the rights to put it on clothes. 

We spoke to Jeremy Joseph, the second guy to submit his application, who told us he jumped at the chance because he thought Trump's "unintended irony" could be a powerful statement. 

The USPTO handles applications on a first-come, first-serve basis, so Jeremy might be S.O.L. if the applicant before him is approved. The third applicant wants a "stable genius covfefe" trademark for a coffee line ... so he's not competing with the other 2.

May the most stablest genius win.

Bella Thorne Tone Deaf In Wake of Montecito Mudslides

1/11/2018 2:57 PM PST

Bella Thorne may get the award for the most self-absorbed celebrity after going off that the mudslides inconvenienced her because the debris is blocking her from attending her boyfriend's concert.

Thorne tweeted, then deleted this:

Rob Lowe, who lives in the area, found out about Thorne's tweet and responded, "This attitude is why people hate celebrities/Hollywood. Bella, I'm sorry you were inconvenienced.  We will try to move out our dead quicker."

But that wasn't the end of it. Thorne, who lives in L.A. where the news about the mudslides was nonstop, incredibly responded, "F*** just caught up on some news had no idea why the 101 was shut down...get home to your family safe." 

James Franco The Sexual Misconduct Allegations Aren't True, But ...

1/10/2018 6:04 AM PST

James Franco had some hand-wringing moments with Stephen Colbert as he tried to address accusations on social media that he sexually assaulted and harassed women.

'The Late Show' almost felt like "Dr. Phil" as the actor took issue with several women making claims, including one who wrote on Twitter, "Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17?"

He says he's perplexed by actress Ally Sheedy, who cryptically posted a comment after watching Franco win Best Actor at the Golden Globes ..."Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much."

But then James seems to waffle a bit, saying, "If there is restitution to be made I will make it."

Watch the clip ... super interesting. 

Ellen DeGeneres to Eric Trump I Can't Be Part of 'Deep State' It Interferes with My Brunch Plans!!!

1/4/2018 6:12 AM PST

Ellen DeGeneres skewered Eric Trump for insinuating she's part of a cabal to undermine his dad.

Ellen's reacting to E.T.'s tweet, in which he suggests the "who to follow" feature of Twitter is somehow part of the "Deep State," and he singles out Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Ellen.

The talk show host -- who does not hide her contempt for the Prez -- says Donald Trump has no one to blame but himself for his problems and inability to govern.

She also says her dance card is full ... no time for deep state activities.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren to Prez Careful What Ya Take Credit For, Donny!

1/3/2018 3:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has no problem with President Trump gloating about the safest year in commercial aviation happening on his watch, but there's a BIG but attached.

The Senator had just flown into D.C.'s Reagan National Airport Wednesday when we got her take on Trump bragging there were zero aviation deaths last year on commercial flights. Trump's nemesis has never been shy about firing back at him, but this time she played it cool.

But like ... the kinda cool that feels like a setup. What she eventually said plays more like a warning to Trump than praise for him.

As for Meryl Streep calling out Melania and Ivanka Trump for keeping silent on the President's alleged sexual misconduct -- Warren sounds like she's team Meryl. No shocker.

DJ Paul Newsweek Needs to Fire Idiot Behind MLK Casket Pic

1/3/2018 6:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Paul is joining Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter in calling out Newsweek for posting a pic of MLK in his casket ... but he wants more than a simple apology.

We got the Memphis native at LAX, and asked him about Newsweek's controversial tweet -- the photo was attached to an op-ed story about MLK. Paul believes the magazine is guilty of what might be the worst-timed clickbait ever -- with the MLK holiday coming next week, and the 50th anniversary of his assassination approaching in April.

While Newsweek has apologized to the King family for what it admits was an "egregious error" ... DJ Paul says it should go one step further, and fire whoever greenlit use of the image.

He also told us how his city will mark this year's anniversary, and gave a pretty strong opinion of his ranking among Memphis legends. Hint: He placed himself at #3 ... check out the top 2.

Breaking News

10:10 AM PT -- Andy Dalton posted a video update Tuesday morning, saying they've raised OVER $100K ... and are gunning for $150K now.

Think Andy Dalton's popular in Bills Country??

Since his miracle TD pass that punched Buffalo's ticket to the postseason, Bills Mafia has given OVER $57K to his charity -- in just 24 hours since the 1st donation!

FYI, Dalton's 49-yard toss completed a shocking upset over the Ravens on Sunday ... and effectively ended Buffalo's 17-YEAR playoff drought.

Pretty soon after the game, donations to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation -- which supports sick and physically challenged kids across Cincy -- came pouring in.

"To all the Bills fans that are donating to my foundation, thank you ... we can't thank y'all enough," Dalton tweeted.

Props.

Aaron Paul Blasts Logan Paul 'Go Rot In Hell'

Breaking News

The celebrity backlash against Logan Paul has begun ... with "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul unloading on the YouTuber as "pure trash" over his dead body video. 

FYI, Aaron is not related to Logan -- but if they were, you can bet he would have disowned him by now. 

"Dear Logan Paul, How dare you! You disgust me."

"I can't believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell."

Piers Morgan is also slamming Logan ... saying, "You’re a sick, twisted, heartless little prick."

Logan tried to smooth things over after shooting and posting a dead body he found in Japan by writing an open letter ... but so far, it seems it's being rejected harshly.
