Karen McDougal Cries, Apologizes for Trump Affair ... I Was a Different Girl Back Then

3/22/2018 6:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal got emotional talking about her relationship with Donald Trump, and although she admits she knew it was wrong ... she says the 2 were in love.

The 1998 Playboy Playmate of the Year sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper ... and got misty-eyed talking about her alleged affair with Trump in 2006. McDougal says she's sorry for what she did and felt guilty about it, but she put the guilt aside because she was having fun ... and truly believed they had a meaningful thing going.

Karen claims she and Trump were much more than just sex partners -- they even said "I love you" to each other frequently -- and he had lovey nicknames for her too.

Earlier in the interview, McDougal reiterated one of her previous claims -- Trump tried to pay her money for sex. She says she declined and it made her sad because she couldn't believe he thought of her that way ... and she cried the whole ride home.

The Game Slovenian Fan Creeps in for Selfie ... Doesn't End Well

Exclusive Video

One of The Game's fans tried to take a selfie with him while the rapper was mid-song during a concert in Slovenia, and it was the exact opposite of Justin Timberlake's feel-good Super Bowl moment.

Game's currently in Europe on a 45 city tour, which stopped in the land of Melania Trump last week -- and it looked fully lit. This video shows a ton of fans onstage with Game, but one Slovenian took things a little too far.

The dude invaded Game's personal space for a selfie. Ballsy move, and one that did NOT end well for the fan. Either Game's gonna get ya, or his security will.

Or, in this case, both.

Troy Aikman on Josh Rosen 'Throws As Well As Anyone I've Ever Seen'

3/23/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Troy Aikman says Josh Rosen ain't just any ol' QB prospect ... the UCLA star tosses the ball as good as anyone he's ever seen fire the pigskin on the football field.

We got Aikman in Beverly Hills after he dropped sweat at a SoulCycle class (get it, Troy!) ... and he broke down the consensus of the top 3 arms in this year's class -- Rosen, Sam Darnold and Josh Allen.

Troy had nice things to say about the whole trio ... but gave Rosen the highest compliment imaginable.

"Josh is a real talent. I watched him throw a few years ago at UCLA one summer. He can throw as well as anybody I’ve ever seen," Aikman told TMZ Sports.

Naturally, Troy says that makes Rosen worthy of the #1 pick next month -- but he ain't guaranteeing that's gonna happen.

Now, we feel like we should point out that Aikman was a UCLA Bruin just like Rosen. Take that however you want!

Mel B I'm So Extra ... terrestrial

3/22/2018 5:31 PM PDT

Mel B's all about putting a scare into the fashion world these days ... this time with a full-body outfit from some time in the distant future.

The Spice Girls singer was on her way to judge "America's Got Talent" in rainy Pasadena Thursday when she was spotted in an out-of-this-world hot pink and blue jumpsuit -- equipped with a hood. She's also rocking leather high heels ... from Rihanna's Fenty Puma line.

They don't really match ... but she doesn't seem to care.

You may recall ... Mel was out and about in another eye-popping getup Tuesday that was even more Scary Spice, but it might have been to promote her group's reunion tour later this year.

No clue what she's promoting this time, though.

Sen. Cory Booker Trump and Biden Should Duke it Out Like Flake and I Did!!!

3/22/2018 4:24 PM PDT

Senator Cory Booker thinks President Donald Trump and Joe Biden should take a cue from his own icy duel with Senator Jeff Flake ... and that, he thinks, could be a battle for the ages. 

We got the New Jersey Dem on Capitol Hill Thursday and asked where his snowball fight with Flake ranks on the all-time list of political battles ... Hamilton vs. Burr, maybe

Booker tells us he's down for a rematch with the Arizona Senator, but only if the weather allows. If not ... he says they'll have to get creative.

As for the high school-style trash-talking between Trump and Biden -- Cory tells us the table's been set for them to settle their beef ... but they better go outside and make it happen quick.

NFL's Zay Jones No Charges for Window Smashing After Bloody, Nude Arrest

3/22/2018 2:56 PM PDT

Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones will NOT be charged with vandalism after the bizarre incident where he got naked, argued with his brother ... and allegedly smashed out a 30th floor window.

The L.A. County D.A. tells TMZ Sports ... there was insufficient evidence to charge Jones. We broke the story ... Jones was arrested and booked Monday night for felony vandalism.

Video of the incident showed him totally naked in the downtown L.A. apartment building ... telling his brother, Cayleb Jones, he was going to "fight for Jesus."

Witnesses said Zay bolted away from his bro, and kicked in a window -- blood was left on the glass and all over the walls and hallways of the building.

Jones was released from custody early Wednesday morning.

The NFL is still investigating the incident, and it's possible he'll face some punishment ... but criminally, he's in the clear.

Kevin Sorbo Comic Convention is Killing My Freedom of Speech!

3/22/2018 3:23 PM PDT

'Hercules' star Kevin Sorbo's says he's being silenced and he suspects it's all being done for a shameless publicity stunt.

ThunderCon, a comic convention in Thunder Bay, Canada, recently rescinded Kevin's invitation for the October event. It was pretty odd because organizers had JUST announced he was attending. When we got Kevin at LAX, he said ThunderCon peeps never contacted him to explain why they were booting him, and left him feeling like they were trying to jack his freedom of speech.

He might have a point. A rep for ThunderCon said they felt Kevin's ultra conservative views were "distressing to their community." Kevin's stance on political and societal issues have drawn criticism in the past ... so, he's certainly used to that.

This time he feels like the convention is using him to make a name for itself -- but ultimately, Kevin says he's not the loser in this situation.

Jacquees' Miami Beach Arrest Cop Used 'Excessive Force' on Me ... Hints at Legal Action

3/22/2018 4:00 PM PDT

Jacquees might be gearing up for a potential lawsuit against Miami Beach PD after one of its officers got rough with him during a traffic stop ... according to Jacquees himself.

The singer recorded a video for his fans, and addressed what he calls the "excessive force" a cop used Wednesday while busting Jacquees for allegedly driving without a seat belt.

He stops short of saying he's suing, but he refers to his legal team -- and its advice for him -- enough for you to read between the lines.

We broke the story ... Jacquees was arrested in Miami Beach Wednesday when cops say he refused to hand over his license, or cooperate with the officers. In the video, you can see an officer give him a good, hard yank by his arm.

One positive -- Jacquees says he's physically and mentally okay after the Ocean Drive incident.

Jacquees was booked for failure to obey a lawful command, and for the seat belt violation. He clearly bonded out of jail and is back on the outside.

Toys 'R' Us Founder Charles Lazarus Dead at 94

3/22/2018 12:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

Charles Lazarus, the man who founded Toys 'R' Us in 1948, has died, just days after the company went belly up.

After Lazarus returned from WWII, he realized quickly the baby boom generation was ripe for a cool, interactive toy superstore. Barbie Dolls, Hula Hoops and Slinkys were all the rage, and he had the idea to create a fun experience for kids and parents.

He experimented with a nondescript children's store, Children's Bargain Town, but then in '57 opened the first Toys 'R' Us in Maryland. Fast-forward ... at its height there were 1,600 stores around the world.

Toys 'R' Us just released a statement ... "There have been many sad moments for Toys'R'Us in recent weeks, and none more heartbreaking than today's news about the passing of our beloved founder, Charles Lazarus. Our thoughts and prayers are with Charles' family and loved ones."

Charles was 94.


Owen Wilson Dances Away with Date After Causing Hotel Evacuation

3/22/2018 1:51 PM PDT

Owen Wilson might need another cigarette after this -- there's footage of the actor carelessly leaving the scene of chaos he just created ... after lighting up a cigarette inside a hotel and causing a mass evac.

The actor and his mystery date were seen smoking near the restrooms inside Miami's Tavern bar at Hotel Croydon after midnight a few weeks back, which set off the fire alarm. In the security vids -- obtained by TMZ -- Wilson and the blonde woman are seen dancing together as they leave the bathrooms and exit the bar ... with alarm lights flashing.

Another camera captures the couple walking through the courtyard right after to leave the hotel ... Owen sets down his drink while his date is seen still smoking her cig. Other hotel guests -- many in their PJs -- are then seen evacuating.

While Wilson's not busted on camera smoking inside, sources at the hotel tell us he and the woman were definitely having a puff in the bar near the restrooms -- there's just no cameras there.

It's unclear if the actor's in any legal trouble over the cigarette snafu, but he might not be welcome back at the hotel anytime soon.

We reached out to Owen ... no word back so far.

Judd Apatow on Garry Shandling I Read Through All His Diaries ... Turns Out, He Achieved Zen!

3/22/2018 1:11 PM PDT

Judd Apatow says his late mentor Garry Shandling became a nicer, wiser guy toward the end of his life, which will be explored in a new documentary about the comedian.

We spoke to Judd on "TMZ Live," and he gave us a rundown on what's behind his new project with HBO -- a 2-part documentary about his deceased pal and comedy great, Garry, that's airing March 26 and 27 on HBO at 8 PM. 

Judd tells us Garry's diaries and journals -- which are the centerpieces in the doc -- revealed the comic became much more compassionate and giving throughout the years ... as neurotic of a creative genius as he was. He says Garry realized giving more to others was a W.

It sounds like a crazy deep dive into the mind of Shandling, who was groundbreakingly innovative with his shows like "It's Garry Shandling's Show" and "The Larry Sanders Show."

And lucky for Judd, he was in Garry's good graces ... until that one year.

Model Adwoa Aboah Sues Management Co. You're Holding My $190k as Ransom!!!

3/22/2018 1:22 PM PDT

Model Adwoa Aboah is getting royally screwed out of tons of dough from her former managers ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Adwoa -- who recently posed nearly nude on the cover of Allure -- is suing The Lions Management, claiming they stiffed her on $190k, and they're holding it as ransom because she left the fold.

In docs obtained by TMZ, Aboah says she earned around $670k between January 2015 and July 2017, but her managers kept almost half of it. She demanded what she was owed, and says TLM wired some, but not all of the cash.

Adwoa eventually left TLM, and says it's holding the money over her head ... just to punish her for bailiing. As she puts it in the suit, "Fashion models are not indentured servants." She's suing to get the remaining balance, plus damages.

We've reached out to Lions Management, so far no word back.
