Danielle Bregoli You Won't Cash Me Inside Harvard

12/8/2017 10:26 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

You won't see Danielle Bregoli hitting any Harvard dorm parties with Malia Obama anytime soon because the rumors she's got a scholarship to the Ivy League school are bogus.

We got Danielle in NYC Friday where she laughed at the thought of Harvard being in her future. The rumor started to float after she shared a pic of herself holding a Harvard "Future Freshman" t-shirt with a caption teasing she had a full ride. Sounds unbelievable since she's only 14 ... and there are even more compelling reasons why it's unbelievable. 

A Flo Rida collab sounds more in the cards for the aspiring rapper, but Danielle tells us she's got reasons to shut that down too.

Surfer Bros Fight for H'Wood Hills Ragers ... C'mon, City Council Dudes!

12/8/2017 9:46 AM PST

L.A.'s crackdown on Hollywood Hills house parties isn't sitting well with a couple of surfer bros who crashed a city council meeting, and punked the hell outta the old dudes.

Self-proclaimed "activist and house party enthusiast" Chad Kroeger addressed the city council this week to fight for the rights of his people, and stop the "future atroxity" of outlawed ragers. His impassioned plea was rudely interrupted. Some city council guy wasn't digging his story, apparently.

It's all good, though ... Chad's pal, JT, stepped to the mic and made an even bigger point on behalf of parties, saying they're good for the whole damn country.

If this all sounds like a joke, that's only because it is. "Chad" and "JT" did this earlier this year in San Clemente, CA ... where they fought for a 12-foot Paul Walker statue.

Yes, they're comedians and, if nothing else, they're making boring-ass city council meetings way more entertaining.

Keep fighting the good fight, bros.

President Trump On Retainer?

12/6/2017 11:01 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump unveiled something new at the White House -- and we don't mean his policy on Jerusalem ... instead, we're talking about a mysterious lisp.

POTUS really did make a major announcement Wednesday morning -- becoming the first Prez to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital in the last 70 years, but near the end of his remarks he started slurring really badly.

It sounded as if he had dentures or a retainer that he was struggling to keep in his mouth.

We've called the White House to check on 45's grill ... but something's definitely up.

John Travolta 'Gotti' Biopic Dropped by Studio At the Last Minute

12/5/2017 4:38 PM PST
Breaking News

Lionsgate is dropping John Travolta's upcoming movie -- a John Gotti biopic -- just 10 days before it's scheduled release date.

The studio did not give any explanation for selling "Gotti" back to the production company in the 11th hour. The Kevin Connolly directed flick was set to come out on Dec. 15. It also co-starred Travolta's real-life wife Kelly Preston.

It's a bizarre move for a major studio to pull a movie so close to release -- but the film's been plagued with problems throughout production.

Costco, Walmart Sued Your Flushable Wipes Ain't the S**t!!!

12/4/2017 5:17 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Retail giants Walmart, Target and Costco and others are getting sued for blowing out toilets and sewer systems with allegedly "flushable" wet wipes.

Here's the straight poop ... a homeowners association in NY state is making a big stink over several brands of flushable wet wipes sold at the stores. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the wipes claim to be safe for sewers and septic tanks because they break down easily after flushing.

Not so, according to the suit. The HOA says these wipes are built to hold up under the "pressure of scrubbing" ... your anus, that is. That's great news for the wiper, but horrible for the wiper's toilet system, allegedly.

The lawsuit includes several photos of damaged sewage systems, and lays blame squarely on the increased use of flushable wipes.

The HOA says the wipes are costing NY state $18 million a year in dookie damage ... no s**t. 

They're suing the retailers and the manufacturers to get the "flushable" label removed until they can truly go down the tubes.

Samuel L. Jackson Guy Claims the Actor's His Uncle In Crazy LAX Weapons Bust

12/3/2017 7:47 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Samuel L. Jackson's name was invoked during a crazy arrest at LAX this weekend, where cops say weapons were found on a guy claiming SLJ's his uncle.

An unidentified man got busted at the airport Sunday for carrying what police say were multiple weapons, including knives, a long piece of rebar and a handful of tools.

During the arrest, you can hear him say, "My uncle's Samuel Jackson. Samuel L. Jackson!"  It's unclear what, if any, relation the actor might have been to him.  

Law enforcement sources tell us police were alerted to a suspicious man hanging around the airport with a bow and arrow. When cops approached, we're told he booked it which set off a brief chase ... which ended when cops tazed him and took him down. 

The man was taken to a hospital by ambulance, apparently having suffered injuries during the arrest. He was booked for possession of a dagger and resisting arrest.

As for Samuel ... he's probably tired of these motherf****** mentions.

Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel I'm Not The A-Hole Driver You Think I Am!!!

12/2/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The CEO of a company that begins with "Snap" is a wanted man by residents in a San Fernando Valley neighborhood because he's terrorizing them with his driving ... and they've wrongly targeted poor Evan Spiegel.

The owner of this Lambo is being accused of breaking just about every traffic law known to man ... from speeding to erratic lane changes. Folks in the Chatsworth area have assumed the offender is Evan, because he has the most famous company that begins with "Snap".

The Chatsworth Neighborhood Watch has been skewering Evan on Facebook, saying things like: 

    "That's Evan Spiegel, Snapchat CEO. The police shouldn't have a hard time finding him"

   "This asshole was flying down vanowen 2 days ago."

   "I don’t care who this jackass is or how much money he has... Dont drive like an ass...."

   "What a jerk! Wondering if you can file an online report?"

   "I’ve also seen this jerk once before! He almost hit us when we were pulling out from the shopping        plaza at De Soto & Lassen. This was like a month ago but I recognize the f***er instantly!!"

Turns out Evan's getting a bad rap, because we found out the car actually belongs to Snap Liquids CEO Nathan Daneshrad ... whose company sells vape liquid flavors.

We reached out to Nathan ... he had no comment.

As for Evan ... he has an alibi, because he lives in Brentwood and no one in their right mind would hang out miles away from Miranda Kerr

Meredith Vieira Called Out Matt Lauer for 'Huge Bag of Sex Toys' in his Office

11/30/2017 10:39 AM PST

Meredith Vieira brought up a "bag of sex toys" she once found in Matt Lauer's office -- and you gotta see how Matt expertly tap danced out of the awkward convo.

The now-cringeworthy moment went down in 2016 when Matt and Savannah Guthrie were guests on Meredith's talk show. She put Matt on blast by bringing up the bag she says she found back when she was co-hosing the "Today" show with him.

Matt was quick on his feet, and blamed a sex therapist who had appeared on "Today" -- although Meredith and Savannah don't seem to be buying his memory of it.

The anecdote is interesting now after one of Lauer's accusers told Variety he once gifted a sex toy to a female employee.

Not mentioned during Matt's guest spot on Meredith's show ... the video TMZ posted of Matt creepily whispering to Meredith, "Keep bending over like that. It's a nice view."

Now, THAT would've been an interesting discussion.

Rep. Joe Barton Apologizes for Sending Junk Pics And Sexting Woman

11/22/2017 10:39 AM PST
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.

David Foster to 'RHOC' Star Get the Hell Outta My Car!!! I Don't Know You, Lady

11/21/2017 10:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

David Foster quickly hit the reject button when some random chick -- to him, anyway -- tried to get in his car to leave with him ... and it FREAKED him the hell out.

The bizarre incident went down Monday night as the legendary producer was leaving Craig's. Things got super weird at his car -- while David was talking to our guy, 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Kelly Dodd, walked up the passenger side and said, "You're gonna have another housewife." 

You've gotta see David's reaction. Yeah, he was married to Yolanda Hadid, but he's definitely NOT looking for an encore 'Housewife' performance ... which Kelly learned the hard way. 

Ass. Kicked. To the curb ... in this awesome video.

David's spokeswoman tells TMZ, "In today’s environment, what Kelly did was careless, inappropriate and disrespectful. David drove away in his car, alone and shaken. The video and her remarks speak for itself."

Kelly tells TMZ, "I was with my friends Heather McDonald and Lea Black and I was joking when I said he needs a new housewife. I guess he didn’t find it funny."

Tyrese Cops Rush to Home After Video Surfaces of Bound and Gagged Man

11/20/2017 6:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Police beelined it for Tyrese's home early Monday morning after he posted a video showing a man tied up in his underwear, looking distressed in Tyrese's home ... as Tyrese eats ramen.

The video -- posted at 3 AM -- shows the man bound and gagged and it looks like he's being held hostage. The man on the couch is comedian Michael Blackson ... whose own vid, infamously mocking Tyrese's breakdown, went viral a couple weeks ago.

LAPD got a flurry of calls after Tyrese posted his vid of Michael bound and gagged -- people felt he had finally lost it, and kidnapped Blackson out of revenge ... now that he has 50/50 custody of Shayla.

When cops arrived at Tyrese's home they spoke with his security and were told the video was a well-produced "joke" -- and Blackson was totally in on it. 

Crisis averted. And well played ... by Tyrese and Blackson.

UFC's Fabricio Werdum Boomerang Attack on Rising Star ... After Alleged Slur

11/16/2017 7:20 AM PST
Breaking News

UFC star Fabricio Werdum attacked another UFC fighter with a boomerang in Australia. 

Seriously -- we're not making this up.

It all went down at the UFC fighters' hotel in Sydney ... when rising welterweight star Colby Covington allegedly called Werdum a "filthy Brazilian" in the lobby.

FYI, Covington hurled a similar insult at a Brazilian crowd after his last fight in Sao Paulo ... and Fabricio's one of the UFC's biggest Brazilian stars.

So, Werdum did what any angry Australian tourist would do -- he took it outside and UNCORKED HIS DAMN BOOMERANG!!!

Later on, Covington recorded himself going on a racist and homophobic rant against the former heavyweight champ ... where he claimed Fabricio also punched him in the face.

"Look at you, f**king f**got," Colby said. "F**k Brazil. F**k Fabricio Werdum ... and they wonder why they get talked to like that -- 'cause they’re a bunch of animals."

But Werdum says he didn't punch Covington ... claiming Colby got physical first by throwing a kick.

The UFC released a statement saying they'll investigate the incident. Covington told MMA Fighting he plans on pressing charges.

Super Bowl 52 Slapping Slogan on Almost Everything Including ... Chicken?!?

11/12/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Super Bowl 52's taking its slogan seriously ... and it'll be EVERYWHERE for EVERYONE to see and buy.

TMZ Sports obtained docs filed by the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee outlining where it wants to place its slogan "Bold North." There's the obvious -- key chains, magnets, wallets, umbrellas, portable chairs, jigsaw puzzles, toys, temporary tattoos, clothing, etc.

Basically, it looks like everything you'll buy at the stadium will feature the slogan, even the menu items. The trademark gets super specific with the foods they're giving the Bold North name to, including: 

-- Sandwiches (brisket, turkey, beef and vegan, too!)

-- Fried chicken

-- Pretzels 

-- Pizza, calzones

-- Hot dogs, corn dogs

-- Donuts

-- Burritos, tacos and fajitas

Bold ... for sure.
