breaking news

0527-ray-mcdonald-01

Ray McDonald has just been arrested AGAIN -- this time, cops say he violated his restraining order ... and was taken into custody at a Togo's sandwich shop. 

According to police, the NFL player had been ordered to stay away from the residence where his ex-fiancee has been staying in Santa Clara, CA after Monday's domestic violence arrest. 

As we previously reported, McDonald was accused of attacking his baby mama while she was holding her child early Monday morning. 

But cops say he returned to the scene of the alleged crime Wednesday afternoon -- but quickly left ... and went to the Togo's, where cops found him and arrested him around 5:35 PM. 

Cops say he was arrested without incident and taken to a nearby jail where he was booked.

You Film Me ...

Me and My Boys Will Film You Right Back!

EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar and his crew swarmed our photog at LAX ... with hilarious results. 

Taylor Swift's new BFF had just arrived when our photog hit him up with a question about Tupac ... but Kendrick turned it around in a big hurry. 

Our guy Charlie got fully flustered as Kendrick and company fired off questions.

Kendrick's next move was interesting ... he gave Charlie the heads up that Schoolboy Q  was just feet away. Charlie wasn't sure if it was a diversionary tactic, but watch the video. Kendrick was telling the truth.

Jennifer Lopez

Don't Clown Me in the Airport!

Gets Confetti Bombed

5/27/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez flaunted her abs and nerves of steel at LAX when some idiot -- actually a clown -- attacked her ... with a handful of confetti.  

J.Lo was doing her thing in the airport on Tuesday -- strolling and looking damn good -- when the guy in full clown face doused her. It would be totally normal for Lopez to jump back, or even flinch ... but you gotta see her reaction.   

The offending clown is no random idiot -- his name is Richie the Barber, and you might recall ... he pulled this same stunt last year on Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian

They pressed charges against Richie. It's unclear if J.Lo will have a sense of humor, or do the same. 

Khloe Kardashian

Damned If You Dubai ...

Damned If You Don't

5/27/2015 7:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-khloe-kardashian-instagramKhloe Kardashian did something totally bizarre for her family -- she covered up her entire face -- and still managed to stir controversy in the Middle East. 

Shortly after landing in Dubai ... Khloe posted a pic of herself wearing a niqab, and immediately got blasted for disrespecting the traditional garb. Haters accused her of wearing it as a fashion statement and not out of respect for the culture.

Of course, some fans saw it the other way, and defended her for doing the right thing in a foreign country.

Seems a little unfair -- if she hadn't worn it, the people defending her would be attacking her and vice versa.

One possible solution for Khloe -- don't post photos?

Karrueche Tran

Oh, That Bloody Lip?

It's Just ...

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.

Colin Kaepernick

Sorry for My Stupid Houston Flood Post

breaking news

0526-colin-kaepernick-GETTY-01Colin Kaepernick is begging for forgiveness after putting up an incredibly stupid Instagram post that poked fun at the devastation caused by the floods that have been ravaging the city of Houston. 

The 49ers QB -- who wears #7 -- has a catchphrase he's been using on social media for months ... "7tormsComing."

And earlier today, he posted a pic showing Houston under water with the caption, "I warned you the 7tormsComing! #Houston #PrayersUp."

0526-kaepernick-offensive-sub-INSTAGRAM-01Feel free to move palm to face. 

By the way, at least 13 people have reportedly died in the storm. 

After a fierce backlash on social media, Colin took the post down ... and posted a new note on Twitter:

"I'm so sorry about my insensitive post earlier today. I didn't fully understand how many people are struggling in Houston right now and I feel horrible. My prayers are with everyone there."

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

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

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.
