Breaking News

Ferdie Pacheco, the corner man who fixed up Muhammad Ali for years in the ring, has died.

Pacheco, known as the "Fight Doctor," died Thursday at his home in Miami ... according to his wife and daughter.

Sylvester Stallone Denies Claim of Sexual Assault on 16-Yr-old ... 'It Never Happened'

11/16/2017 12:44 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Sylvester Stallone is vehemently denying an allegation he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl back in 1986 while he was in Las Vegas.

The claim is based on a police report in which the alleged victim said Stallone, who was 40 at the time, invited her up to his room at the Las Vegas Hilton. She claims he had sex with her, and then asked if she'd ever had sex with 2 men at the same time.

According to the police report, published by the Daily Mail, the girl claimed Stallone's bodyguard then came out of the bathroom and she was forced to perform oral sex on him and Stallone. She claims Stallone threatened to "beat her head in" if she told anyone.

Stallone's spokeswoman Michelle Bega tells TMZ ... "This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter."

The girl did not want to press charges because she was scared and humiliated, and reportedly signed a "no prosecution" form.

It's not uncommon, especially with a minor involved, for police and prosecutors to pursue a case without an alleged victim's cooperation. However, Las Vegas PD tells us they could not go forward in this type of case when the victim is refusing to cooperate and move forward with charges.

Stallone's rep is adamant ... "It never happened."

Gigi Hadid Out of VS Fashion Show in China ... 'Won't Be Able to Make It'

11/16/2017 11:57 AM PST

Gigi Hadid will NOT be walking the runway for Victoria's Secret in China -- despite saying she would this summer -- and folks think it's got something to do with her mocking Asians.

Gigi announced Thursday she "won't be able to make it to China this year," adding she'd be there in spirit with her VS family, and couldn't "wait for next year!"

The model didn't elaborate as to why she was bailing, but people online couldn't help but point to the backlash she caught earlier this year when she imitated a Buddha face online ... which many people called racist and insensitive.

Again, Gigi hasn't explained the reason behind her cancellation ... but either way, it looks like she's walking this one all the way back ... not on the runway, though.

Quick side note ... it appears her sister, Bella, is still planning to appear in Shanghai.

Tyron Woodley says a showdown with Nate Diaz at UFC 219 is "50% complete" -- and the only thing that's holding it up is "scared" Nate Diaz. 

"All you gotta say is 'Yes,'" Tyron said in a message to Nate on "The Hollywood Beatdown" show ... "Put the ink to the paper and we done."

Tyron says he's ready and training for the Dec. 30 fight in Vegas ... and says he honestly believes Nate is scared to fight him.

"Guys in our sport bump their gums quite a bit and they get you to think they're these huge tough guys ... they're these gangsters that they'll fight anybody, anytime."

"And then when you get in front of a person like me ... the crickets start to come out. They don't really wanna fight."

Tyron says it happened with Michael Bisping, Georges St-Pierre, Conor McGregor and Nick Diaz.

Harvey Weinstein Undercover Drinks Gets 'Starr' Treatment

11/16/2017 11:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Weinstein's camp tells us the women came to the meeting to deliver info about an anger management program they're urging him to enter. We're told the trio was waiting to meet with Weinstein's rehab sponsor.Here's Harvey Weinstein -- or maybe a Blues Brother, or a long-lost member of Run DMC -- wining and dining 2 blondes in the desert. 

TMZ obtained the photo, taken last Saturday night at a restaurant in Carefree, AZ ... just outside Phoenix. A witness says Weinstein was at the table waiting for the ladies when they arrived, and he'd pre-ordered 2 glasses of white wine for them. He drank what appeared to be water.

The women appeared captivated by Weinstein's conversation -- but we're told both of them arrived with small portfolios, and it seemed more business-like. They all left together, exiting off the patio instead of walking through the restaurant.

The leather jacket, fedora and shades are, arguably, an upgrade over the wigged out getup he was rocking earlier this month at a different Phoenix-area eatery.

Best of all, we're told he signed his tab with the alias "Nick Starr." You can take the guy outta Hollywood, but ya can't ...

Keegan-Michael Key Divorce Finalized Shelling Out TON$

EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key is officially a single man ... but it's gonna cost him boatloads of cash.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Keegan's gonna have to shell out $34k per month in spousal support to Cynthia Blaise and he'll have to kick in an additional 21% of his gross income on anything he earns above $2.153 million a year, but she's capped out at $700k per year.

But it doesn't end there. Keegan also cut her a check for $655k to even out the division of assets. She also gets to keep a timeshare in Mexico and her Subaru Crosstrek.

It's not all bad news for the former "Key & Peele" star. He gets to keep his Tesla and several bank accounts. And even though he's gotta shell out a ton of cash, he doesn't seem the least bit worried ... seeing as he appears to already be engaged. 

TMZ broke the story ... the "Friends from College" star filed for divorce in January of 2015. They had no children.

Sen. Al Franken Facing Calls for Ethics Review Leeann Tweeden Claims Harassment

11/16/2017 9:19 AM PST

10:54 AM PT -- Leeann says she accepts Franken's apology. 

Sen. Al Franken may face an Ethics Committee review in the wake of claims he groped and sexually harassed radio host and former model Leeann Tweeden.

Tweeden released a 2006 photo of Franken -- who was not then elected -- groping, or at least pretending to grope her as she slept during a USO trip they both made. Tweeden says Franken, an 'SNL' vet and comedian at the time, had written a skit for their USO show in the Middle East, which required him to kiss her.

She claims during rehearsals he repeatedly tried to kiss her even though she told him it was not necessary. As she put it, "Relax Al, this isn't SNL ... we don't need to rehearse the kiss." She claims he persisted and eventually put his hand on the back of her head, and jammed his tongue in her mouth.

She says the alleged groping photo was taken on the plane ride home, after the 2-week tour, and as she slept.

Franken released a lengthy statement, apologizing directly to Tweeden. He also said, "I respect women. I don't respect men who don't. And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell isn't satisfied with the apology, and says, "As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter."

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Hot Kisses on Ice

11/16/2017 8:28 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber got an awesome body check from his gf, Selena Gomez, during a hockey time-out when she planted a serious kiss on him.

The reunited couple hooked up Wednesday night in L.A. at Justin's weekly hockey game. We've known they were back on for weeks, but the public kisses are like a sealing of the deal.

Selena went to hockey night a couple weeks ago, but no PDA that time around. We'd say the re-coupling -- which, as we told you was initiated by Bieber months ago -- is going well. Very well.

He shoots! HE SCORES!!!

Lil Peep Dead at 21 Tour Bus Overdose Suspected

11/16/2017 5:13 AM PST
Exclusive Details

New York rapper Lil Peep, whose lyrics were laced with drug references, has died of a suspected overdose on his tour bus ... TMZ has confirmed.

Lil Peep's body was found on the bus Wednesday night outside a club called The Rock in Tucson. He was scheduled to perform there. Law enforcement tells us his manager went to check on him around 8:50 PM and found him dead. We're told there was drug paraphernalia around him, and evidence of a possible overdose, and it was likely he'd taken Xanax.

Peep had posted a photo earlier in the day with what appeared to be prescription pills on his tongue and the caption, "fucc it."

Peep was an up-and-comer whose emo lyrics -- sometimes rapped, sometimes sung -- attracted several celebs in and out of the music biz. He and Bella Thorne had hooked up back in September.

Post Malone immediately reacted to his death on social media. 

DJ Marshmello had toured with Peep, and said they'd just been talking about doing music together.

Peep, whose real name was Gustav Ahr, had just released his debut album, "Come Over When You're Sober (Part One)" in August.

He was just 21.

RIP
