Sen. Marco Rubio O.J. Can Come Back to Florida But He Ain't Gonna Like It

10/18/2017 12:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O.J. Simpson can return to Florida, but he ain't gonna get a sunshiny welcome -- so says Senator Marco Rubio ... who seems pretty against The Juice lettin' loose in his home state.

"What can I do about that?" Rubio told TMZ Sports when we got him in D.C. ... "He has a right to live wherever he wants."

Technically, yes ... though Florida's Attorney General has strongly objected to O.J. coming back to his old digs. 

Marco didn't come at O.J. as hard, but he did tell us there ain't much love for Juice in the area.

Rubio would know ... after politicking in Florida for two decades.

The bottom line -- Marco thinks O.J.'s better off staying in his Vegas 'hood ... where he's been hunkering down since his release.

Museum of Ice Cream Upping Its Sprinkle Game For the Environment

10/18/2017 11:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Museum of Ice Cream has been a huge hit for dessert lovers in L.A. and San Francisco this year ... but now some folks are screaming about the harm it's doing to the environment.

The museum's main attraction -- the Sprinkle Pool -- isn't all rainbows according to critics who've pointed out the tiny plastic sprinkles get carried out to the streets in people's clothes and become litter ... which could end up in the water and be a danger to marine life.

A rep for the museum tells TMZ ... it's aware of the environmental concerns and working on a fix, including creating a biodegradable sprinkle for the Sprinkle Pools. We're told California's top environmental specialists have been consulted on the issue as well.

In the meantime ... the museum claims it's ramping up its cleaning efforts to minimize the amount of plastic sprinkles that make their way outside its walls ... and encourages guests to do a "double shake" before leaving.

Fans of the ice cream attraction don't have to worry, though -- it's staying open until December ... so there's still plenty of time to get a Sprinkle Pool pic for the 'gram.

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian sure knows how to pick 'em ... pumpkins, that is.

Kim hit up a pumpkin patch Tuesday outside L.A. with North and Saint, and a little friend of theirs tagging along. Not like picking out pumpkins isn't fun enough -- the kids, including Kim, also got to enjoy an inflatable slide.

No sign of Kanye there -- he was probably laying low at home like he has been lately. All good though ... Kim held down the hay fort.

Yes, it's the great pumpkin (patch), Kim Kardashian!

Frank Ocean In Your Face, Dad! Wins Defamation Suit

10/18/2017 10:43 AM PDT

Frank Ocean's father got his day in court and lost the defamation suit he filed against his son for calling him a bigot.

The singer's dad, Calvin Cooksey, had sued him ... claiming Frank defamed him with a social media post recalling a story from his childhood. Frank said his pop had called a transgender waitress "a f****t."

A judge heard the case in L.A. Tuesday, and ruled in favor of Frank ... saying Cooksey failed to prove his son had defamed him at all. Frank's attorney tells us, "It was a sad case, but we are glad that it ended in Frank's favor and that it is over."

Kim Zolciak Don't Robe Me the Wrong Way

10/18/2017 9:58 AM PDT

Kim Zolciak unveiled a new way to avoid pat downs at TSA -- just leave very little to the imagination. She also unveiled her boobs ... almost. 

The 'RHOA' star looked like she'd just rolled out of bed -- rocking nothing but jeans and a bathrobe -- as she caught a flight out of Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport. The robe was hanging on for dear life too. 

She's notoriously known for being tardy, especially for flights, so we get why she'd try to save time.

Kim was en route to Gucci Mane's wedding in Miami. He tied the knot Tuesday night at an all-white affair, where Kim actually covered up her girls more ... but just a bit more.

EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein's troubles are just beginning, because in Marcia Clark's expert legal opinion ... he'll likely be facing a criminal jury soon.

We got the famed O.J. Simpson prosecutor at LAX Wednesday and she said accusers coming forward, and lawsuits are just the start for Weinstein. The next step, she says, could be criminal charges.

Marcia knows of what she speaks -- on Tuesday the L.A. City Attorney encouraged any victims to come forward and report sexual harassment or abuse in the workplace.

It's clear she's keeping an eye on the whole scandal -- so, our guy asked if Marcia would be willing to take it on as a prosecutor. She's long since left that gig but a woman can dream, can't she?

Rob Kardashian Fight with Blac Chyna Triggered by Coke, Booze

10/18/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna didn't get beaten up by Rob Kardashian as she claims ... SHE was the aggressor in a cocaine-fueled rage ... so say sources connected to the Kardashians.

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna is suing Rob, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kylie and Kendall, claiming they conspired to torpedo her reality show and also caused her great pain over an alleged domestic violence incident in April. She says Rob knocked her to the ground and hit her in a rage.

Our Kardashian sources say the real story is this ... they claim the day before the incident, Chyna was using coke and drinking alcohol from morning till night. They say later that night Chyna and Rob went to a strip club and Chyna got a stripper to come home with them.

We're told Chyna partied with the stripper all night long, doing more coke and continuing her drinking binge while Rob watched Dream and King Cairo.  

Our sources say Rob confronted Chyna the next morning, kicking the stripper out, calling Chyna irresponsible. He claims she went ballistic, hitting him, throwing things at him and berating him. Rob insists he only defended himself and never struck her.

The sources say Rob actually had an appointment that day with the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, which had an open case against Chyna. He says he protected her by not mentioning the incident.

Shawn Holley, the Kardashian lawyer, tells TMZ, "We have witness statements and other evidence which will demonstrate conclusively that it is Chyna -- not Rob -- who is the violent and aggressive abuser."

Our Kardashian source claims Chyna tried shaking the family down for millions before filing suit.

We reached out to Chyna's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, who said, "There's no excuse for domestic violence." She did not comment on the allegations against her client.

Post Malone quickly realized technique is everything if you wanna be a guitar-smashing rock star -- but he was still able to live up to his own song title. Eventually.

Post was doing a show Tuesday night in Fort Lauderdale, when he had Postmates deliver a sweet red guitar from a local Guitar Center. We're told it cost him about $1,000.

He originally asked for 100 guitars, with the idea of smashing 'em onstage while performing his new #1 hit with 21 Savage, "Rockstar." Fortunately, he stuck with just one ... 'cause it was a bitch to break.

For those about to rock, Post salutes you! Slowly.

Las Vegas Shooting Hotel Guard Opens Up About Finding Shooter

10/18/2017 7:41 AM PDT

Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard who alerted police to the Las Vegas shooter, is speaking out for the first time about the violent encounter that left him with gunshot wounds.

Jesus opened up to Ellen DeGeneres ... detailing the harrowing moments leading up to him discovering Stephen Paddock on the 32nd floor, just as he was starting to open fire on the crowd of concertgoers below.

He thinks a loud slamming door during his routine check of the floor is what tipped off his location to Paddock, who then started shooting into the hallway -- and hit Campos in the leg.

Miraculously, Campos says he was still able to somehow get on his radio and tell his team shots had been fired. You can hear his full story on Wednesday's episode of 'Ellen.'
