Cardi B Cop Choke Hold Seems Like Fiction ... Says NYPD

9/21/2017 2:41 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B's claim she was choked out by a cop doesn't pass NYPD's smell test -- at least for now -- 'cause they can't find any evidence of it ... TMZ has learned.

NYPD Assistant Commissioner Peter Donald tells us ... NYPD conducted a full investigation into the Bronx rapper's allegation an officer put her in a choke hold Tuesday and slammed her up against her SUV. He says they can't find any proof it happened.

Donald says commanders in each precinct around Columbus Circle, where Cardi claims the choke hold went down, looked into all records and surveillance video of the area and could not find a thing to support her account.

As we first reported ... although she's pissed off about the incident, she isn't talking about legal action.

We're told Cardi's refused to offer more details of the alleged incident, and because of that ... the department doubts it ever happened. They're asking her to come forward and talk.

We've reached out to Cardi's camp ... so far no word back.

Selena Gomez Just Doing My Job Look Away, The Weeknd!

9/21/2017 2:24 PM PDT

Selena Gomez planted one on a dude that wasn't her bf, The Weeknd, in NYC ... but she ain't two timin' ... it's just another day at the office.

The guy's name is Timothee Chalamet. You might recognize him from the TV show "Homeland" or the film "Interstellar" -- but now he's playing Selena's love interest in Woody Allen's latest flick.

It's been shooting all over the Big Apple and Thursday they filmed this well-lit smooch scene. We're pretty sure Tim probably didn't mind a retake or eight.

Gatorade Sued By California Over Celebrity Anti-Water Campaign

9/21/2017 2:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gatorade's gettin' some Hater-ade from the State of California -- which is suing the energy drink company for a star-studded smear campaign against water. 

Drink that in. 

It's all over a 2012 app launched by Gatorade called "Bolt!" -- it's a mobile phone game like "Temple Run" in which a Usain Bolt character runs through obstacles gathering Gatorade token to run faster. 

The enemy in the game is water -- which is branded as "the enemy of performance." Players must avoid water at all cost. The game was reportedly downloaded more than 2.3 million times and promoted by huge stars like Justin Bieber and Mike Tyson

So, why does the state of CA have a problem? 

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the state attorney general believes the game violated California law by delivering a misleading message to consumers -- that water decreases athletic performance.  California says that's just not true. 

The State wants to block Gatorade from continuing the anti-H20 ad campaign -- and also seeks to hit the company with a serious fine. 

For the record, the game has since been pulled from the app store.

EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick's moved on to his next fling, but he's keeping things consistent -- she's another hot young celeb still in her teens.

Scott and 19-year-old Sofia Richie chilled on the beach in Miami Thursday after arriving together earlier in the day for an apparent couples vacay. The 2 soaked up some sun ... and shared a kiss by their waterfront hotel.

Well played, sir.

Richard Simmons On the Hook for National Enquirer's Lawyers In Defamation Case

9/21/2017 1:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Richard Simmons just got a financial injury added to the insult of losing his defamation lawsuit against the National Enquirer.

According to court docs, Simmons has been ordered to cover attorney costs and any other court fees incurred by the Enquirer. You'll recall, Richard sued the tabloid for defaming him with a story saying he was in the process of sexual reassignment.

He lost the case with the judge saying being misidentified as transgender doesn't expose someone to "hatred, contempt or ridicule."

The exact amount of attorney's fees hasn't been determined yet. We broke the story ... Richard plans to appeal, so if he wins he'll most likely be off the hook for the Enquirer's lawyers.

Aaron Hernandez Fiancee Sues Patriots & NFL ... Over CTE Claims

9/21/2017 12:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Hernandez's fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, says Aaron killed himself as a result of severe CTE he suffered during his NFL career -- and she's suing the the Patriots and the league for keeping him in the dark about the brain disease. 

Shayanna filed the lawsuit in Mass. on behalf of the daughter she had with Aaron.

In the suit Shayanna says, "Aaron had stage 3 CTE usually seen in players with a median age of death of 67 years."

Shayanna claims the NFL and the Patriots were aware of the link between suicidal impulses and CTE and failed to share that info with Hernandez.

She claims the NFL and the Patriots "were fully aware of the damage that could be inflicted from repetitive impact injuries and failed to disclose, treat or protect him from the dangers of such damage."

In her suit, Shayanna says she and her daughter are seeking "redress for the loss of parental consortium she has experienced based on the negligent conduct of Defendants that deprived her of the companionship and society of her father, Aaron Hernandez."

Hernandez infamously killed himself in his prison cell on April 19 -- after he was found not guilty in a double homicide. Hernandez was already serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd at the time of his death. 

Shayanna says in her suit, "On April 19, 2017, Aaron succumbed to the symptoms of CTE and committed suicide."
