Rolling Stones

Sorry Normies ...

Celebs Got to Rock at Secret Show

5/21/2015 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521_rolling_stones_secret_show_stars_launchBruce Willis and Jack Nicholson scored the hottest ticket in Hollywood Wednesday night -- seats at the Rolling Stones' show in a small theater -- something normal Stones fans struggled to do.

Actually, struggled is an understatement -- but yeah, Bruce, Jack, Andy Garcia, Harry Styles, Scooter Braun, and Joe Pesci were among the huge stars inside the Fonda Theater to see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the boys warm up for their Zip Code stadium tour.

Tickets went on sale online at noon on Wednesday ... and reportedly sold out in just a few minutes. There's a buzz that NO ONE -- as in non-celebs -- was able to get a seat. 

Monica Lewinsky and Charlotte McKinney also made it in, so ... yeah. Altogether now die-hard, regular working class fans -- FML!

Bonus: We got footage of the Stones performing "Start Me Up" ... from across the street and through the bar inside the Fonda. We know, lame -- but it's he best we could do without a ticket.

Ray Rice

Domestic Violence Wiped From His Record

5/21/2015 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0521-ray-rice-getty-01

Ray Rice is officially no longer a domestic violence offender -- the charges from the elevator beating of his then-fiancee have been dismissed and expunged.

The former Baltimore Ravens star completed a pretrial intervention program, and the Atlantic County D.A. sent a dismissal order to the court. Judge Michael A. Donio signed the order early Thursday morning.

As we previously reported, Rice struck a deal with prosecutors -- he was initially indicted on a charge of felony aggravated assault, but the D.A. lowered that to simple assault, a misdemeanor. The deal was controversial ... especially after TMZ Sports first posted the video of Rice inside a casino elevator, brutally knocking Janay Palmer unconscious.

According to docs, Rice was in the supervised intervention program for 12 months. He also had to pay a $125 fine.

So, Rice has now put the criminal case behind him -- and late last year NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reinstated him, but Rice has not been picked up by a team yet.

Bobby Flay's Estranged Wife

He's Rich Because of My Mouth!

5/21/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-bobby-flay-stephanie-march-TMZ-01Bobby Flay's estranged wife claims she was the famous chef's secret sauce ... that nothing went on a plate in his restaurant unless it passed her taste test.

We've learned Stephanie March has filed legal docs to set aside their prenup, claiming in part it's unconscionable to enforce an agreement that leaves her with table scraps when she's the reason he became wildly successful.

She claims Bobby told her she has "an amazing palate" and relied on her to taste test his recipes. She says she sampled a number of items at their home and gave thumbs up and down, which led to the finished product. She specifically cites Bobby's NYC restaurant, Bar Americain.

We're told in her argument to the judge she zeroes in on Bobby's famed NYC restaurant, Bolo, (which, ironically, didn't last). Stephanie says during a vacation to Spain she pushed him into including tapas on the menu -- something she says he was against. But Stephanie says she prevailed, and the restaurant became an enormous success, earning 3 stars from the New York Times.

Stephanie says she was also heavily involved in the design and ambience of all of Bobby's restaurants, right down to music and lighting.

Stephanie is trying to undo the prenup, which provides her with $5k a month. She'd also get around $1 million as a buyout for the family home.

We're told Bobby is firm ... his business is successful because of him, not Stephanie.

Taye Diggs

Channeling His Inner Homosexual

... To Play Hedwig

5/21/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Taye Diggs dabbled in male prostitution and cross-dressing during his high school days -- OR you're about to see Taye yank a photog's chain really hard ... either way, this clip is awesome.

First, the serious part -- Taye is set to become the first African-American to play the iconic lead role in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" on Broadway. Neil Patrick Harris, Michael C. Hall, and John Cameron Mitchell have previously played the role. 

Our camera guy saw Diggs leaving the gym in LA ... and asked how he was prepping for the role. You gotta see the story Taye spins about "ass play" and working the streets in 10th and 11th grade. Great improv ... made funnier by the photog not getting the joke.

Taye does finally cop to being excited to let out his inner "flaming homosexual."

Should be interesting ... 

Young Buck

It’s Snoop’s Fault

I Faked My Drug Test!

1:00 PM PST -- Young Buck tells TMZ, "It's nobody's fault but my own."  

update_grey_gray_bar

Young Buck couldn’t resist smoking weed with Snoop Dogg while on probation ... and now the G-Unit rapper is facing more jail time for faking a mandatory drug test. 

Buck literally got busted with his pants down according to a probation officer -- who says he saw YB using a tube to shoot a "yellow substance" into his drug testing cup last week. 

According to docs ... he first tried to use the ol’ secondhand smoke excuse, but ultimately caved and admitted he'd gotten high with Snoop. Now, a judge will decide whether Buck has to do jail time for the violation. 

Shame ... Buck had been on a winning streak, pissing clean for his previous 21 mandatory tests since November 2013.

Bottom line? Snoop’s weed will mess you up. In multiple ways.

'Bachelorette' Contestant

Blasts Chris Harrison

I Was Told To Strip

5/21/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Booted 'Bachelorette' contestant Josh S. is livid over being portrayed as a creepy stripper by host Chris Harrison because he was only getting naked on demand -- the producers' demands.

Sources close to Josh tell TMZ ... producers put him up to the striptease after nixing his original plan to simply hug Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson. We're told producers said his nice guy act was too boring and forgettable -- so, he caved and did as they suggested ... losing his shirt and rubbing the girls' hands on his bare chest. 

Our sources say Josh is especially pissed because Harrison called him "creepy" on his blog and "The View" -- because he feels like he was forced to make those "creepy" moves.

Here's the kicker ... Josh actually is a stripper, so he's no prude. We're told he just feels like he'd still be on the show if he'd gone with his more subtle and gentlemanly approach. 

We've reached out to the show but so far no word back.

Kaskade

I Ain’t Scurred

Of Wiz or Wayne's DJ Skillz

5/21/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Big time rappers Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa can try to step into Kaskade’s arena any time they want ... as far as he's concerned the rappers are only helping him make more money.

We got Kaskade at LAX, and asked him if he was worried about Weezy and Wiz putting him out of business now that they're dabbling in spinning.

Check out Kaskade's reaction to the "celebrity DJs" -- it's sheer bravado.

By the way, the fact that he makes $250k and up for just one gig might have something to do with Kaskade's confidence.

Ex-WWE Star Tammy Sytch

Porn Stars Gushing for Her Sex Debut ...

She Can Pin Me Anytime!

5/20/2015 5:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520_Tammy-Lynn-Sytch_WWEFormer WWE star Tammy Sytch is being welcomed in the porn star sisterhood with open arms -- and other stuff -- because the sex game's biggest names say she comes pre-trained for sex-on-cam.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Tammy, aka Sunny, is close to inking a six figure deal with Vivid Entertainment, and porn star Joanna Angel says she will fit right in -- "Porn is just like wrestling, it's sex on steroids, exaggerated. Wrestling is kinda like fighting on steroids ... it's the same thing."

For the record ... the WWE vehemently frowns on steroids.

That being said ... if Tammy wants to shoot a wrestling themed porn for her debut -- she'll have her pick of co-stars. Missy Martinez told us she's game to go a few rounds -- and Tanya Tate said, "She’s the first ever WWE Diva. I’d like to get pinned by her! Tag me in."

As for the big swinging male stars -- Nat Turner says what Tammy's really got going for her is ... "Dude's have been obsessed with her for years so she's already got the fan base. The more the merrier."

Like a Royal Rumble .. except that's not sweat on the mat.

Drunk ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant

My Rape Line Was Entertaining

... Refuses to Apologize

5/20/2015 4:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The 'Bachelorette' contestant who's getting blasted for dropping a rape comment on a cast member isn't backing down -- and says his controversial line saved the whole show. 

If you missed it ... Ryan McDill -- a self-proclaimed amateur actor and comedian -- was booted during the first episode after ripping off his shirt and telling another guy on the show, "Why am I not raping you right now?" That line combined with McDill's apparent boozing got him 86'd.

McDill admits he was drinking a lot, but adds ... "I wasn’t blacked out and knew exactly what I was doing.” He also says the rape line wasn't a joke -- as critics have said -- and claims he was really trying to say, I'll destroy you.

He tells us, "People need to get off their high horse. It was awesome and entertaining.”

As for the heavy drinking and groping Kaitlyn's ass -- McDill claims he felt pressure to play it up for the cameras -- and claims all the guys on the show do it too. However, he does NOT say producers told him to act like a tool.

And McDill offered one last shot -- he actually thinks producers should thank him because he was “the only reason the first episode was the s**t.”
