Bill Cosby Andrea Constand Dressed Like She Was Asking for It

6/23/2017 6:43 AM PDT

A juror in the Bill Cosby trial says Andrea Constand's choice of clothes was highly relevant in deciding whether she was the victim of sexual assault.

The male juror -- who spoke with Philadelphia Inquirer -- said Constand should have been "dressed properly" when she went to Cosby's home. Constand apparently was wearing a top with the midriff exposed.

The juror felt Constand was interested in a romantic relationship, in part because she brought a gift -- incense. The juror felt she should have "left the incense in the store" if this was just a friendship.

The juror went on to say the votes in jury deliberation were evenly split and there was no skew based on sex, age or color.

He felt Constand seemed rehearsed -- pushed by her mom -- whereas Cosby seemed honest in his deposition by admitting things that were unflattering.

The juror -- who wouldn't say how he voted -- feels a retrial is a waste of time.

Johnny Depp White House Calls for Hollywood Backlash After Assassination Crack

6/23/2017 8:51 AM PDT
Breaking News

Johnny Depp's assassination remark about President Trump will cost him dearly ... in Hollywood ... if the White House gets its way.

Trump's been silent about Depp saying, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?" -- however, a White House spokesperson just said, "President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it's sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead."

The statement continues, "I hope that some of Mr. Depp's colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official."

It's just a matter of time ... but y'know the Prez is loading up some "Pirates of the Caribbean" cracks.

Zac Brown Wants Out of Court Date with Fan

6/23/2017 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Zac Brown wants a judge to excuse him from a court date to settle a fan's lawsuit.

Zac's being sued by Karen Perry, a blind woman, who says she was gravely injured during his 2015 concert at Fenway Park. She claims Zac incited the crowd to storm the disabled section where she was sitting.

According to docs ... Zac's promoter for the show, Live Nation, is stepping in to defend him at next week's scheduled mediation hearing.

Zac says the Live Nation rep who will be there has full authority to settle the lawsuit ... so there's no reason for him to show his face.

Donald Trump Says Obama May Have Planted Secret Recorders In Oval Office

6/23/2017 6:46 AM PDT

Donald Trump has created an outlandish justification for suggesting 42 days ago that his conversation with then FBI Director James Comey may have been recorded ... and he's pointing the finger at Obama.

Trump said on "Fox & Friends" Friday the reason he made his now-famous oblique reference to recording Comey was that the Obama administration was so deep into surveillance it was possible his predecessor wired the Oval Office.

The suggestion ... the wiring was so surreptitious, no one noticed it when Trump moved in.

Melania was by her husband's side and made it clear ... she's all in now and doesn't miss The Big Apple.

Scott Disick & Bella Thorne Together Again Partying & Drinking HARD

6/23/2017 6:36 AM PDT

Scott Disick and Bella Thorne are a glutton for punishment ... back together, partying and drinking hard ... and ain't hiding a thing.

The Lord and 19-year-old actress were raging well into the wee hours Friday after hitting up 1 OAK for Lana Del Rey's birthday party. They kept it going at an after-party in Bev Hills ... arriving at the crib just after 2 AM and leaving together along with another lady friend at 4 AM.

Scott, famously an alcoholic, had no problem chugging a Corona. His heavy drinking has friends worried sick. You'll recall he went to rehab in 2015 but doesn't appear to be slowing down.

As for Bella ... so much for feeling used.

Amber Rose No Beating Around Bush Bolts From Concert with 21 Savage

6/23/2017 7:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose appears to have at least one bush backer in rapper 21 Savage ... after they left a show together in L.A.

We got them Thursday night walking out of the Belasco Theater where there was a music show put on by Red Bull. They got into his red Ferrari, and since it only seats 2 ... the math was looking good for a hookup.

Amber's not shy ... she claims she hasn't had any sex partners this year because work's kept her so busy, there's "no time for penis." Raises the question: for whom is she bringing that bush back?

21 Savage might have the answer.

Judge Judy Bad Form, Johnny Depp For Cracking Trump Assassination Joke

6/23/2017 6:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Judge Judy thinks Johnny Depp is in the clear for his Trump assassination wisecrack, but that doesn't mean she thinks it's ok.

Judy and hubby Jerry Sheindlin were in WeHo Thursday night leaving Craig's restaurant when our photog asked if Depp's quip violated the law. She dismisses that, but raises issues of taste.

It's interesting ... when our photog mentions Depp made the comment outside the U.S. of A., she doubles down and suggests certain matters of taste are simply universal.

Dennis Rodman to Trump: We Can Make Peace with N. Korea ... Together!

6/23/2017 7:10 AM PDT

Dennis Rodman just sent a message to Donald Trump -- call me, so we can make peace with North Korea together! 

And yeah, he's dead serious. 

The Worm -- who just got back from N. Korea -- sat down with Michael Strahan on 'GMA' and laid out why he thinks he and Trump can make real progress with Kim Jong-un

Strahan pushed Rodman about the fact Jong-un's a dictator and the mysterious death of ex-NK prisoner Otto Warmbier ... but Dennis continued to insist the North Koreans are good people who are just misunderstood.

While Rodman wouldn't personally take credit for Warmbier's release -- his agent sure did ... insisting Dennis' trip was a key factor in Jong-un's decision to free the 22-year-old American. 

Rodman's agent says he specifically asked about Warmier's release 3 times before this most recent trip -- and says, "I know being there had something to do with it."

Warmbier's family says BS -- insisting the NBA legend had nothing to do with it.

Lonzo Ball Goes Full Kardashian ... After NBA Draft

6/23/2017 6:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Look out, Kim and Kris ... Lonzo and LaVar Ball have officially begun their march on Hollywood. 

Moments after Lonzo got drafted by the Lakers, the cameras were rolling on the Big Baller Brand family -- who were flanked by cops, security and a swagged-out BBB entourage as they got the VIP treatment on the way out of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A professional camera crew was recording the whole thing -- unclear if it was ESPN or a BBB documentary/reality show ... which we already confirmed was in the works.

One thing's for sure ... LaVar was LOVING the attention Thursday night and it's not going away anytime soon.

Kim Kardashian West I've Got Nothing But Time For Jackie Kennedy

6/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian has a little Jackie Kennedy in her -- or at least on her -- because we found out she secretly bid on and won one of the legendary First Lady's super-expensive timepieces.

Auction sources tell us Christie's expected the watch to pull in $120,000 ... but Kim's anonymous, winning bid was $379,500!

Jackie's Cartier watch must have been acquired when she was First Lady -- just months before JFK was assassinated. It's engraved February 23, 1963. She got it as a gift from brother-in-law Prince Stanislaw "Stas" Radziwill.

It's interesting ... Kim has vowed not to be flashy since she was robbed in Paris last October. The watch doesn't stray from her plan ... it has no diamonds and the design is actually understated. We're told she plans to wear it. 

Kim also bid on one of Jackie's paintings ... which shows Stas in '63 on a 50-mile hike in Palm Beach.

Ryan Seacrest on 'A.I.' The Money's Good ... But Title is Everything

6/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Seacrest's "done deal" to host the reboot of "American Idol" has hit a snag ... but it's not over money.

TMZ broke the story ... Seacrest and Fremantle Media and Core Media -- the producers of "American Idol"-- have agreed on his salary ... somewhere between $10 million and $15 million, substantially less than Katy Perry's $25M paycheck but definitely not chump change -- but he wants more than a "Host" title.

Sources at Fremantle and Core tell us, Seacrest is asking for an Executive Producer credit but Fremantle is balking, and the stalemate has now lasted more than a week. It's unclear if Seacrest wants day-to-day responsibilities for producing the show -- hard to imagine since there are only 24 hours in a day.

As we reported, we know producers are interested in Lionel Richie as a judge, but we're told they won't sign anyone else until they seal the deal with Seacrest.

Stay tuned.

Congressman Cedric Richmond Slams Trump, NRA Philando Castile Was NO Threat to Cops

6/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump and the National Rifle Ass'n are stereotyping all black men as dangerous, and the proof is their silence over the killing of Philando Castile ... so says Congressman Cedric Richmond.

Richmond was on Capitol Hill Thursday when our photog asked about gun advocates like the President and the NRA ... both of which had nothing to say about the 2nd Amendment when it came to the killing of Castile, who told cops he was carrying a legal gun.

As you know, the cop shot Castile 7 times at point-blank range, claiming he feared for his life.

The congressman -- who also chairs the powerful Black Caucus -- is incredulous Trump and the NRA have not defended Castile's right to bear arms.
