Taylor Swift My Groping Pics Will Get People Off Don't Release Them!

10/21/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-david-mueller-tmz-twitter-01Taylor Swift thinks the pics of a DJ allegedly groping her will get people all hot and bothered ... so much so she wants the judge in the case to seal them.

Taylor made the pitch in legal docs in her lawsuit against radio DJ David Mueller ... claiming the release of the pics would "be shared for scandalous and prurient interests."

That's short for ... the press will have a field day with this stuff ... and folks will get super aroused.

Taylor thinks the release of the pics would create unfairness against her ... to the point of influencing a jury pool, saying, "the interest in a fair and impartial trial outweigh any public interest in access to the documents identified above."

You'll recall ... Mueller originally sued Taylor last year, saying he was fired after she publicly claimed he groped her backstage in 2013 at one of her concerts. Taylor countersued ... saying he absolutely did. 

In her docs, Taylor calls the pics "extremely personal and sensitive."

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Famous Boobs at Roast Steal Show ... Totally by Accident

10/21/2016 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.

Donald Sterling Hotline Bling With Mystery Blonde

10/21/2016 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-donald-sterling-blonde-akm-01Donald Sterling went looking for stuff older than he is -- but he did it with a chick quite a bit younger than him.

The 82-year-old ex-Clippers owner was cruising antique shops in Bev Hills Thursday with a hot blonde on his arm and his best b-boy vest on his back. Looks like he got some smartphone lessons too. 

Seems too little too late for Sterling to embrace hip-hop culture, but if you're gonna do it, Donald -- try the red down jacket next time, dawg. Just sayin' ...

Brad Pitt I'm Not Answering Angelina's Divorce For the Sake of Our Kids

10/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-brad-pitt-angelina-joile-tmz-01Brad Pitt will not file a legal response to Angelina Jolie's divorce petition because it would set the stage for a nasty legal battle ... and he fears it would cause great psychological damage to their kids.

Brad's legal answer was supposed to be filed Wednesday, but the deadline came and went. Sources close to the case tell us ... Brad wants joint legal and physical custody, but if he actually filed papers it would draw the battle lines. Angelina wants sole physical custody, setting up a possible custody war.

Angelina could set the wheels in motion for a default judgment since Brad hasn't answered her petition, but we're told that is not going to happen. She agrees ... healing the family is the priority, not starting a war.

There's something else here at play. The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is still investigating the airplane confrontation between Brad and 15-year-old Maddox, and Brad will be in a much stronger position if DCFS closes the case before he files his answer.

Our sources also say there's a chance the whole divorce case could settle privately without any dueling divorce docs. And, we're told, on that goal both Angelina and Brad agree.

Kim Kardashian Apologize, Or I'll Sue You For Calling My Robbery Fake

10/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-kim-kardashian-huff-post-tmz-02Kim Kardashian's preparing to drop the legal hammer on a writer who published a story claiming the Paris robbery was a total sham ... purely cooked up for publicity.

The letter demands Sharika Soal -- a contributor to The Huffington Post -- publish a retraction and an apology for her Oct. 8th post which quoted Kim as saying her ordeal was a "publicity stunt gone horribly wrong."

Kim says that quote is a fabrication, and her lawyers point out that quote was actually pulled from a satirical website -- a clear shot at Soal's journalistic skills.

Soal tells TMZ it's impossible for her to give Kim what she wants because HuffPo has blocked her out of her account, so she can't post the retraction. She says she's explained her dilemma to Kim's lawyers.


We've reached out HuffPo reps, who say Kim's beef is with Soal and not them. They also say they pulled the story -- which was self-published by Soal -- when editors saw it violated terms.

Sharika added ... she's got nothing and if Kim sues, that's all she'll get.

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.
