Karrueche Tran

Oh, That Bloody Lip?

It's Just ...

5/26/2015 5:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0526-karrueche-tran-bleeding-lip-INSTAGRAM-01Karrueche Tran's bloody lip and vague caption might have you believing something seriously physical went down a certain someone in her life ... but TMZ has learned that just isn't the case. 

KT posted the photo Tuesday afternoon with the caption, "Rough day in Chicago." While it seems like a bad domestic violence joke -- we're told she was actually referring to a photo shoot she just did in Chi-town.

Our sources say the spread called for Karrueche to play a "street fighter" type, thus the blood.

So, despite her ex-bf temporarily overreacting to her pic with Tyson Beckford -- this fight club snapshot was strictly a work thing.

Sam Shepard

One Tequila, Two Tequila

... Busted for DUI

Two shots of tequila is all Sam Shepard drank ... at least that's the story he unsuccessfully told cops before they cuffed him.

The "Bloodline" actor was popped Monday night in Santa Fe, New Mexico outside a restaurant. A security guard called police, saying he feared Shepard was way too drunk to drive.

Shepard tried in vain to drive away, thwarted by an emergency brake he failed to release. That was enough evidence for cops to pull him over, and administer field sobriety tests ... which he failed. Cops say he also refused to blow into the breathalyzer, and that upped the ante.  

He was arrested for aggravated DUI, and remains in custody. 

Shepard was arrested for DUI back in 2009.

Josh Duggar

Cracks Molestation Joke

Dating Family Is What We Do!

5/26/2015 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Josh Duggar is from Arkansas ... so it's totally cool if he dates his siblings.  

Back in 2008 -- long before Duggar's molestation past came to light -- he made a quip during an episode of what was then called "17 Kids and Counting." 

Josh describes a double date scenario with his then-fiancée Anna ... he ended up going with 2 of his siblings.  

Josh explains, "We chose Jana and John David. We thought why not, have a double date ... We are from Arkansas!"

He then broke out in laughter.

Not so funny now ...

'Bad Grandpa' Wedding Couple

Adios, Jackass ...

Wife Files For Divorce

5/25/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521-bad-grandpa-callaway-gablePerhaps having 'Bad Grandpa' star Johnny Knoxville trash your wedding isn't the best starting point -- just ask the movie's producer, whose marriage is now in ruins. 

According to the docs, 2 years after Jarrod Brom's wedding was featured in the film -- full of ball slaps and fart pranks -- his wife, Kimberly Peeler has filed divorce papers ... throwing in the towel, which was most likely up someone's butt.

You may recall ... film crews captured Knoxville's character demolishing a champagne tower and destroying the cake during their actual ceremony.

The divorce should be pretty clean though -- they don't have any kids, and in the docs Kimberly says there are no assets to split.

If Knoxville pops up in divorce court ... that would be awesome.

Kris Jenner

Hammered for NOT Using N-Word

Kris Jenner is actually being criticized for NOT using the n-word.

Kris congratulated Kim and Kanye on their 1-year anniversary Saturday, reminiscing about the uber-fancy wedding in Florence following a blow-out party in Versailles. 

Kris posted, "Kanye treated us to fireworks ... And if you listen closely ... his huge hit song "Great People in Paris ..."  She didn't want to use the real title, "(N-word) in Paris."

Some people are railing on Kris, grousing, "Things white people say," and others calling her "ignorant." 

You can't win for losing.

'Breaking Amish' Star

Arrested for Cursing at Cops

5/23/2015 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0523-breaking-amish-jeremiah-raber-TLC-01TLC execs must be dreading that "trouble comes in threes" saying -- a cast member from "Breaking Amish" got busted by cops ... the 2nd legal headache this week for the cable channel. 

Cops in Pennsylvania tell TMZ ...  Jeremiah Raber from "Breaking Amish" was a passenger during a routine traffic stop Saturday morning. Everything went smoothly until cops let the vehicle go and Raber, a passenger in the car, decided to hang out the window and yell profanities at the officers.

We're told PA State Troopers followed the vehicle and found it parked at a nearby home, and Jeremiah screaming at the driver who'd taken him home from a bar.

Cops booked Raber for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness ... he was later released.

Of course, TLC just pulled "19 Kids and Counting" in the wake of Josh Duggar's admission he sexually molested multiple underage girls when he was 14.

Don't Blame Us, Blame Racist Web

For 'N***a House' Mistake

5/21/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521_google_maps_white_house-2Google finally got to the bottom of that whole "n***a house" map search screw up, and it says the culprit is none other than YOU ... if you're a racist who frequently uses those words on the Internet.

Here's the explanation from a Google spokesperson, "Our ranking systems are designed to return results that match a person's query. For Maps, this means using content about businesses and other public places from across the web."

In non-egghead speak -- Google Maps matches searches for "White House" with words commonly used when people discuss the White House in public Internet discussions.

If their logic is accurate ... there are a ton of web users calling President Obama's residence the "n***a house." Sad to say ... that's probably true.

Google says it's working on the "failure in our system" -- but adds it will take a while for the fix to roll out.

Flavor Flav

Arrested in the

Mother of All Traffic Stops

EXCLUSIVE

0521_flva_flav_mug_wm

Flavor Flav was arrested early Thursday morning in Las Vegas by highway patrol and got nailed for so many alleged crimes ... it might be easier to tell you what cops didn't pin on him.

Only sorta kidding, but here's what they booked him on:

-- DUI
-- Possession of marijuana
-- Open container
-- Speeding
-- Bogus registration
-- Driving with a suspended license

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, this all began when cops spotted Flav at 12:30 AM 2005 black BMW and going 73mph in a 45mph zone.

Flav was busted for speeding last year in NY on the way to his mother's funeral. When cops ran his license, they found it was suspended 16 times.

He swore to a judge he fixed the problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Young Buck

It’s Snoop’s Fault

I Faked My Drug Test!

1:00 PM PST -- Young Buck tells TMZ, "It's nobody's fault but my own."  

update_grey_gray_bar

Young Buck couldn’t resist smoking weed with Snoop Dogg while on probation ... and now the G-Unit rapper is facing more jail time for faking a mandatory drug test. 

Buck literally got busted with his pants down according to a probation officer -- who says he saw YB using a tube to shoot a "yellow substance" into his drug testing cup last week. 

According to docs ... he first tried to use the ol’ secondhand smoke excuse, but ultimately caved and admitted he'd gotten high with Snoop. Now, a judge will decide whether Buck has to do jail time for the violation. 

Shame ... Buck had been on a winning streak, pissing clean for his previous 21 mandatory tests since November 2013.

Bottom line? Snoop’s weed will mess you up. In multiple ways.

Drunk ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant

My Rape Line Was Entertaining

... Refuses to Apologize

5/20/2015 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The 'Bachelorette' contestant who's getting blasted for dropping a rape comment on a cast member isn't backing down -- and says his controversial line saved the whole show. 

If you missed it ... Ryan McDill -- a self-proclaimed amateur actor and comedian -- was booted during the first episode after ripping off his shirt and telling another guy on the show, "Why am I not raping you right now?" That line combined with McDill's apparent boozing got him 86'd.

McDill admits he was drinking a lot, but adds ... "I wasn’t blacked out and knew exactly what I was doing.” He also says the rape line wasn't a joke -- as critics have said -- and claims he was really trying to say, I'll destroy you.

He tells us, "People need to get off their high horse. It was awesome and entertaining.”

As for the heavy drinking and groping Kaitlyn's ass -- McDill claims he felt pressure to play it up for the cameras -- and claims all the guys on the show do it too. However, he does NOT say producers told him to act like a tool.

And McDill offered one last shot -- he actually thinks producers should thank him because he was “the only reason the first episode was the s**t.”

Verne Troyer

Shoots Taser Incident at LAX

5/20/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Verne Troyer turned vigilante at LAX -- chasing down a man who burst through a TSA checkpoint until police captured and tased him ... and Verne recorded the whole thing.

Verne was on his way to catch a flight to Ohio when he heard the commotion near TSA, and when he saw the suspect running away ... he fired up his motorized scooter and tracked down the guy.

You might call the video ... VerneVision ... it's all shot from his, umm ... lower perspective, but it's awesome, and remarkably steady.

Luckily, police caught up to the suspect before Verne did, but deputy Troyer did manage to capture the moment when officers busted out their Taser and took the man into custody.

Only bummer -- the stupid stairs and escalator that prevented Verne from nabbing the guy himself. He did get a souvenir though -- the straw hat the suspect dropped right before he got zapped.

U.S. Supreme Court

Google Says

They're a Bunch of Dumb F***s!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0519-supreme-court-02

Google is pissing off another branch of our government, because if you live in D.C. and type in "dumb f***" on Google Maps, the United States Supreme Court pops up.

Unlike the White House -- where anyone in the U.S. can type "N***a House" and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue pops up -- the Supreme Court only appears in Washington D.C. Google says it's working on the "n" word problem.

As for "dumb f***," it seems to change regionally. In California, if you search "dumb f***" you get Cal Poly Pomona.

Check what comes up in your area. It's fun.

Bill Murray

So Drunk

I Fell For MSNBC!!!

5/20/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget being too drunk to stand, Tuesday night Bill Murray was too drunk to sit!

Murray appeared on MSNBC’s "The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell" ... which was not his first stop of the night.

The "Groundhog Day" star did "The Late Show with David Letterman," where he appeared to swig vodka right from the bottle. Bill then went to dinner, where he enjoyed a few glasses of wine with his meal.

Cut to his next stop at MSNBC ... where he clumsily sat on a chair and then crashed to the floor.

Any issues regarding alcohol consumption are clearly resolved after the break when Bill slurs his way through the interview.
