11/29/2016 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The radio DJ accused of grabbing Taylor Swift's bare ass while posing for a photo with her has spoken for the first time, and has a pretty handy explanation of what went down ... for him.

DJ David Mueller gave his account of the infamous alleged groping to a Detroit's "Mojo in the Morning" show Tuesday -- he says there was a touching of Tay ... but it was accidental and harmless.

Mueller claims his hand was never open and sounds pretty pissed over allegations he touched her bare bottom. Take a look at the pic ... do you buy David's story?

Donald Trump Secret Service Investigates Death Threat to Prez-Elect

11/29/2016 10:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1129-donald-trump-tmzSecret Service agents felt Donald Trump's life was threatened earlier this month, and paid a visit to the messenger ... who says it was just a joke.

Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ ... Trump's Secret Service team and Sheriff's deputies in Greene County, Ohio checked in with a guy Monday who posted a screen shot of a text message on Nov. 14 ... which read, "kill Trump."

We're told the meeting went like this. Agents asked the man -- who ID'd himself as Micah -- if he was serious about the threat. He responded, "Not unless he starts going door-to-door rounding up people like he says."

Micah tells us the agents seemed satisfied he wasn't serious and they left.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Lace Morris Keeping Matching 'Grace' Tattoo ... And the Ring!

11/29/2016 10:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1129-lace-morris-grant-kemp-tmz-instagram"Bachelor in Paradise" star Lace Morris is back on the market but she's absolutely certain about one thing -- the matching tattoo she got with ex-fiance Grant Kemp ... ain't going away.

Lace tells us even though she and Grant both got their couple name, "Grace," inked on their wrists, she's planning to keep it because it's not just about her ex and the broken engagement.

0809-lace-morris-wrist-tattoo-SPLASH-01Lace says it's a reminder of good times she had with Grant, and memories of shooting 'BiP.' She says she always intended to get a tatt souvenir for her time on the show ... just so happens it ended up being about Grant when they got together.

We're told Grant's not rushing to remove the ink, but he's open to erasing it later. Translation: When a new hot chick wants it gone, he'll lose it.

As for the engagement ring -- reportedly worth almost $100k and bought by production, NOT Grant -- Lace says she's keeping it, unless producers demand it back.

Desiigner Off the Hook in Drug Arrest

11/29/2016 9:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1013-desiigner-tmz-01Desiigner can finally put his NYC drug arrest behind him ... the final charge for possession will effectively go away, and his record will be cleared.

The D.A. moved to seal the case and dismiss the charge Tuesday in court. Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... this was a face-saving move by authorities who avoided simply dropping the charge ... after previously dropping the other charges in his September arrest.

He'd initially been hit with intent to sell, menacing and possession of a loaded gun, but investigators never found a gun and the drugs turned out to be steroids -- most likely prescribed to the driver of Desiigner's SUV that night.  

Bottom line for Desiigner: his name will be fully cleared.

He wasn't in court Tuesday. His attorneys, Ian Niles and Stacey Richman, were and told TMZ ... "We're happy he's been exonerated ... and happy with the investigation from the D.A."

1129-dollywood-eaglesupdate_graphic_red_bar9:55 AM PST -- Dolly just released a statement on the fire, saying, "I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe. It is a blessing that my Dollywood theme park, the DreamMore Resort and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared."update_grey_gray_barDolly Parton's Dollywood is under siege from wildfires which have triggered a rescue mission for several bald eagles inside one of the theme park's sanctuaries.  

Dollywood, which is near the fires raging in Gatlinburg, TN, is also home to the American Eagle Foundation -- a group dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating birds of prey. The group shelters nearly a dozen bald eagles, and we're told staffers rounded up 50 of the birds Monday night.

We're told there are still a handful left to be captured and moved. The foundation's President, Al Cecere, tells TMZ the sanctuary's location puts the birds at serious risk for smoke inhalation. They'll remain at a nearby convention center until the air is clear and the park is safe.

Dollywood evacuated guests Monday, but so far firefighters have kept the flames at bay.

Colombia Plane Crash Soccer Team Survivor Instagrammed Before Crash

11/29/2016 6:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

One of the survivors of the Colombian plane crash Instagrammed shortly before boarding the plane that went down -- showing him smiling and laughing with a soccer teammate before the unthinkable occurred. 

The man with the beard is Alan Ruschel -- a defender on the Chapecoense soccer team, based out of Brazil. The team was set to play in the finals of the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday.

Ruschel Instagrammed with his teammate, Danilo Padilha, while aboard the first leg of their trip -- before they got on the charter flight that crashed en route to Medellín, Colombia.

Padilha survived the initial crash, but later died at a nearby hospital. 

Ruschel reportedly suffered head injuries in the crash -- but is said to be alive. 

1129-colombia-plane-crash-getty-launch-02The plane, which took off from Bolivia, contained 81 passengers -- including players, journalists and others. It reportedly suffered electrical failure just before it was supposed to land near the airport in Medellin, Colombia. 

Miraculously, rescuers found 6 survivors in the wreckage -- 3 players, 2 crewman and 1 journalist. 71 people have been confirmed dead. 

According to reports, Lionel Messi and the Argentina national soccer team flew on the exact same plane just 20 days ago to travel to a match in Brazil.

Story developing ...

11/29/2016 6:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wiz Khalifa almost buried the hatchet with Kanye West by extending a weed stem ... but then turned hostile on 'Ye again at the last second.

We got Wiz leaving Catch Monday night, where he sounded sympathetic to Kanye's recent mental breakdown and even offers a psychedelic remedy that he specializes in.  

But before he leaves ... he takes one last shot at his hip-hop foe, who once claimed to own Wiz and Amber Rose's kid. Old grudges die hard.

'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Production Temporarily Shut Down

11/29/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128-karashians-tmz-getty-2"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" came to a screeching halt on October 3rd, when Kim was held up at gunpoint in Paris, and we've learned the cameras will not roll for the rest of the year ... possibly longer.

Sources connected with the production tell us producers have enough footage for the series commitment, but the plan was to film through the holidays, and that won't happen.

We're told Kanye's hospitalization has temporarily shut down production, but Kim has been in such bad shape since the robbery that there was no real hope of shooting anything through December.

Kim, we're told, has been "rethinking everything" ... our sources would not elaborate.

So the show will go on ... but no XMAS cheer, for sure.

Justin Bieber Fast Times With Usain Bolt

11/29/2016 7:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber got down with the fastest man on Earth to celebrate a movie about the Olympian ... and he was anything but sorry to be partying with the champ.

Bieber was in London Monday night and showed up to an after-party following a screening of "I Am Bolt" -- a documentary about Usain Bolt's journey to the Rio Olympics.

Unclear if the Biebs saw the film itself, but he definitely raged with the man of the hour afterward.

One Direction's Liam Payne was there for the screening and party too, but was reportedly on the opposite side of the room ... meaning he missed out on the Bolt/Bieber selfies.
