Warren Sapp

Video Of Hooker Arrest

'Stop Talking And Oral Me'

4/20/2015 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of Warren Sapp speaking with cops moments after his Feb. 2nd prostitution arrest in Arizona -- in which he says he told a talkative hooker to shut up and use her mouth for other things instead.  

In the video, which was recorded by law enforcement, Warren explains his side of the story ... how he picked up two women in a Phoenix hotel bar and offered them money for sexual favors.  

"I put the $600 dollars on the table, everybody got naked," Sapp explained.  

At one point, Sapp says one of the escorts started talking ... so he told her, "Why don't you use your mouth on me, instead of using it?!" 

During the video, Sapp says he was snapping photos and joking around with the women because ... as he put it ... "I'm silly like that sometimes."

At one point during the interview, Sapp realizes he's going to jail -- and has a bit of a mental breakdown.

Sapp says a dispute began when one of the women asked for a "tip" -- and he told both of the women to leave. Sapp says one of the women grabbed his cell phone and called hotel security.

Sapp says the woman then spit on him -- which angered the other escort ... and the two women began to argue.

Eventually, Sapp says the argument spilled into the hallway ... and he chased after them while naked to get his phone back. 

Luckily, Sapp says the dead bolt kept the door from closing and he went back into the room.

Warren was charged with two counts of assault and one count of soliciting prostitution. Sapp denies ever laying a hand (aggressively) on either woman. 

If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail.

EXCLUSIVE

Ridiculousness Steelo Brim Sexual Assault

MTV's "Ridiculousness" star Sterling "Steelo" Brim is accused of sexually assaulting a porn star in NYC, but claims it's BS, and she threatened to concoct a phony rape story ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Steelo and porn star Mary Jean were hanging out Friday night, but she claims things went south fast. Mary says she told cops ... while she was driving Steelo wanted sex, and when she refused he grabbed her crotch, punched her breasts, and said "this belongs to me."

Here's where the story gets really strange. Steelo says Mary refused to let him out of the car, and threatened to tell people he had raped her ... if he got out. Steelo says he weighed his options and decided to leap from the moving car. He says he tucked and rolled on the street ... injuring his arm and his Rolex. 

Steelo denies assaulting Mary ... who went straight to police after he escaped, and reported the alleged sexual assault.  

Mary denies blocking Steelo from getting out of the car, and says he could have fled at a stop light. She says she was trying to take him to police.

Police are investigating Mary Jean's claims. Steelo tells us he hasn't spoken to cops yet, and no charges have been filed.

Bobby and Tina Brown are absolutely wrong ... Bobbi Kristina is not off life support and remains unresponsive ... this according to the Houston family.

Sources connected with the Houstons tell TMZ, they have no idea where Bobby Brown is getting his information that Bobbi Kristina was awake, nor do they know why Tina said she's awake and no longer on life support.  Gossip Cop first reported the conflicting positions between the Browns and the Houstons.

We're told the Houstons are clear ... "She's in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility." They say there is "minimal" reaction ... an occasional eye blink, but that's it.

The Houstons say Bobbi Kristina is still on a ventilator.

Rihanna AssIt's funny that Rihanna is the one in Hawaii ... because we're the ones enjoying the view.

RiRi is island side for the marriage of long time assistant Jennifer Rosales -- going down Monday -- but instead of taking in epic shots of perfect sunsets, she spent a lot of time this weekend snapping selfies of her perfect parts ... and we ain't complaining.

Front,  back, side to side ... she definitely got all the angles ... but the trip isn't about her, right? It's about love and marriage and ... blah, blah, blah.

That pizza slice bathing suit is on point ... and if she's offering, we'll take a piece.

Mariah Carey is clearly influenced by a much younger singer, because she's saying she'll never ever ever get back together with Nick Cannon.

We know Mariah has seen our video of Nick, telling us he's not closing the door on the possibility of giving their marriage another try.

But sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ, she's out of that game. She likes Nick, but there's no chance of a romantic reconciliation. 

She's not in the market for anyone right now. Mariah has a residency in Vegas that's just weeks away. She's also into raising the twins. When she's not working she goes to Eleuthera, her private Island in the Bahamas.

It looks like she may have a case of post breakup hotness, right?

Kylie Jenner

Girls Want Her Fat Lips!!!

4/20/2015 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner pretty clearly has a fan base that wants her lips, whether they're real or not.

Truth be told, our office is divided. The guys think these girls in the video are mocking Kylie by putting their lips inside a bottle to swell them up, but the women in the office say the girls are trying to be just like the youngest Jenner. Since the men here have never been teenage girls, the women win.

The hashtag, #kyliejennerchallenge, is blowing up.

BTW Kylie has insisted in the past, "These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting ... Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16."
