One of R. Kelly's longtime live-in girlfriends has had enough of the circus surrounding his myriad of federal and state legal battles ... so she's moved out of his Trump Tower condo.

Sources close to Azriel Clary tell us she recently got her own place in Chicago and is no longer living with Joycelyn Savage. We're told Azriel wanted to distance herself from the ongoing Kelly saga -- including Joycelyn's fake Patreon page -- and focus on her life.

Our sources say Azriel does still support R. Kelly ... but being in the condo with Joycelyn and being immersed in the drama at all times became too much. We're told Azriel is making money to support herself through a TV project and modeling gigs.

Azriel's main focus is now on her singing career, something she put a lot of effort into before meeting R. Kelly. She has plans to document her daily life, showcase her singing and start acting.

THE DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN

Azriel's father, Angelo, told us back in July he would do anything to get his daughter out of Trump Tower ... including pay for her own apartment. The move certainly seems to be one in the direction of reuniting with her family.

It was just this week when TMZ obtained a video of R. Kelly's other girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, making a statement in full support of the singer. Savage claimed she wasn't the one behind the pay account that claimed to have info on Kelly ... and that she and Azriel still fully supported him.

Unlike Joycelyn, Azriel has really pushed her social media pages lately. She's started a Twitter and YouTube page ... and will restore her Instagram shortly.

Elliott From 'E.T.' Used Toilet Water in DUI Urine Test ... Cops Suspect, He Denies

Exclusive

Elliott from 'E.T.' allegedly tried to pull a fast one during his Oregon DUI stop by brazenly tampering with his urine test, then playing it cool in hopes of passing a blood alcohol test.

Henry Thomas refused to complete breathalyzer and field sobriety tests ... according to the Tualatin PD report on his October DUI arrest, and instead, he was taken to the station for a urine test.

Washington County Jail

In the report, obtained by TMZ, cops say they placed the actor in a holding cell before requesting the urine sample. As an officer was reading Henry the consent form, cops say he interrupted, asked for the cup and went over to the toilet to get down to biz.

Police say the officer turned her back to Thomas' cell and continued reading the consent form, and heard him taking a leak. But, when he returned the cup, cops say it was not warm and the sample was completely clear and filled to the brim.

Cops asked Thomas if he tampered with the urine sample by dipping it into the toilet, and he denied it.

As we first reported, Tualatin cops responded to a call of Thomas being asleep at the wheel in the middle of an intersection, and say they found 'fast acting THC' in his car.

Anyway, cops say while they were transporting Thomas to a hospital for a blood test, he threatened to sue the police department and the city ... and bragged about being the child star from 'E.T.'

He got one more chance to provide another urine sample at the hospital, but police say the actor claimed he didn't have to pee and again insisted he didn't tamper with the earlier sample.

But, just like Steven Spielberg's iconic 1982 film, there's a happy ending for Elliott.

IF he cheated the pee test, he never got busted for it, because he took a sweet plea deal and won't spend any time behind bars.

Chris Webber Open to Reconcile with Mich. Hoops ... After 26-Year Beef

Exclusive
PUMPED TO BE BACK
TMZSports.com

Chris Webber says he hasn't been back to the Crisler Center at the Univ. of Michigan in 26 YEARS -- but he's finally down to bury the hatchet ... thanks to Juwan Howard.

Webber was a key member of the legendary Fab Five team in '92 and '93 ... but got caught up in a college booster scandal and in 2003, he was hit with a 10-year ban prohibiting him from associating with the school in any capacity.

The ban expired in 2013 ... but Webber has still had NO relationship with the basketball program ever since (though he did attend a football game in 2018).

"I haven't been back because they banned me from the place," Webber says ... "When they did a 10-year ban, said I couldn't come to the campus, well then, okay I'm not gonna come."

But, now that his good buddy and ex-Fab Five teammate Juwan Howard has taken over the hoops program for the Wolverines, Webber tells TMZ Sports he's seriously considering rekindling his relationship with Michigan Basketball.

"Howard is my friend ... and therefore, I put pride aside," Webber said.

"I told Juwon I'd love to come to a practice and he's definitely extended an opportunity. So, I'm pumped about it when it happens."

"I haven't been back to Crisler Arena since the day I left when I was 20 years old going to the NBA. And, so, he knows that's a special moment for me. So, yeah I would love that."

Webber says he wants his return to be private -- "No fanfare, without people around so I can just go around a reminisce and have a good time as well."

"Everything doesn't have to be for everyone to see and I'm sure we're gonna have that moment for everyone ... but for me, just going back there, watching him work, watching him fulfill a dream and seeing what we built there, that's important to me."

'Riverdale' Star Trevor Stines Signs Modeling Contract ... Jason Really Blossoms!!!

The guy who played the high schooler who gets killed in the first season of "Riverdale" is now killing it with his good looks ... and he just landed his first modeling deal.

Trevor Stines -- best known for playing Jason Blossom on the teen drama TV series -- signed with DT Model Management and the agency says it has high hopes for the hunky actor.

DT agent, Ricardo Guerrero, tells us he knew about Trevor from Riverdale, but what really caught his attention was his sexy role in the Lifetime movie, "Purity Falls."

Stargazer Films USA

In the flick, Stines plays a high school wrestler who gets entrapped in a neighborhood woman's male escort business ... but the movie poster really says it all.

Guerrero says the team met with Trevor, and along with his flawless features ... his personality won them over. He adds that DT's hoping to book Stines in ad campaigns, and because of his "classic beauty" and charm ... they want him in fashion shows too.

BTW -- Trevor's 6'1" ... a perfect model height for the runway.

Enes Kanter Gunning For WWE After NBA Career I'm Talkin' To Triple H!!!

Exclusive
RETIREMENT PLAN
TMZSports.com

Enes Kanter already has a sick retirement plan in place when his NBA career comes to an end ... telling TMZ Sports he's already in talks to join WWE full time!!!

Of course, the Boston Celtics star is no stranger to the squared circle -- he VERY briefly held the 24/7 Championship at Monday Night Raw back in September, but then lost it moments later to R-Truth.

We spoke with the 27-year-old about his future plans with Vince McMahon's company ... and he says the wheels are already moving for a career in wrasslin'!!!

"I'm ready, I'm actually already talking to some people," Kanter tells us.

Oh, and by "some people," he doesn't mean *just* "some people" ... Kanter says he's met with Triple H and Paul Heyman ... and it's just a matter of WHEN not IF.

Kanter -- who is in his 9th season in the Association -- says he's still hoping to play at least 5-6 more years of hoops before he considers throwing on the spandex for the wrestling gig, so he's in no rush.

After all, the dude's made 90 MILLION in his career so far ... so we don't blame him.

Peloton 'Wife' Ditches Bike Gifting Hubby for Gin ... Courtesy Ryan Reynolds!!!

BIKE NOT INCLUDED

All that controversy over the Peloton commercial critics are blasting for body-shaming just landed the star of it a hilarious new gig ... with Ryan Reynolds.

Monica Ruiz is the actress who plays the wife -- sorry, long-suffering wife to many -- in that Christmas gift themed fitness spot, but now she's also starring in an ad for Aviation Gin ... and it plays perfectly off all the Peloton buzz.

Based on the commercial ... the formerly spinning-crazed wife is now more interested in downing booze with her girls. The strong insinuation here is she's left the husband who "forced" her to get on the bike every day.

The ladies toast to "new beginnings" before the wife pounds her martini. One of her GFs even says, "You look great, by the way."

Of course, Aviation is Ryan's company ... and ya gotta hand it to his marketing team for capitalizing off the social media uproar over Peloton.

SURPRISE!!!
PELOTON

All the backlash against the Peloton has impacted the ad's actors -- Monica and her "hubby" Sean Hunter -- who've dodged interviews all week. Hunter did eventually speak out in "Psychology Today."

Leave it to Reynolds, though, to lighten the mood. He tweeted his company's commercial with the caption, "Exercise bike not included."

Bottoms up!!! Meaning the martini glass, not her ... ya know.

United Airlines Woman Allegedly Stung by Scorpion While Plane Was In Air

Exclusive
TMZ.com

A woman on a United Airlines flight got wayyy more than a trip from point A to point B ... ending her journey instead with burning pain from multiple scorpion stings.

The woman says she was on a flight from San Francisco to Atlanta Thursday morning. She says while in the air, she began to feel a stinging sensation on her leg and went to the restroom when it intensified.

The woman says that's when the scorpion dropped out of her pant leg, still alive, and scurried across the floor. It was eventually caught by flight attendants.

Paramedics met with her once the plane landed to tend to her multiple stings. Luckily she's going to be just fine.

We reached out to United for comment ... so far, no word back.

CP5 Exoneree Raymond Santana I'm Engaged Thanks to Instagram!!! And I Have ZERO Interest in a Bloomberg Apology

Exclusive
TOTAL SURPRISE
TMZ.com

Raymond Santana -- one of the wrongfully convicted Central Park Five -- just got engaged to a reality star, and tells us it wouldn't have been possible without a little Instagram flirting.

Raymond was on "TMZ Live" Friday to give us the lowdown on his engagement to "Flavor of Love" star Deelishis, to whom he proposed on Thursday during a lunch date in ATL. Ray says he was pretty sly about it, dropping a faux attitude on his girl before he popped the question.

THE MOMENT OF LOVE

And, for all those thirsty folks on the 'Gram ... Raymond's here to tell you why shooting your shot can pay major dividends. The story of how he and Deelishis met is so 2019, ya gotta watch the clip. Dude's a romantic.

Of course, Ava DuvVernay's Netflix series "When They See Us" turned a spotlight on Raymond's story -- highlighting the injustice of his conviction for the brutal 1989 rape and beating of a female jogger in NYC.

We asked Raymond if he would accept an apology from former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for his administration's role in avoiding a settlement in the CP5's damage suit against the NYPD after their convictions were vacated.

You might recall ... Bloomberg avoided settling the case before leaving office, and Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration agreed in 2014 to pay the CP5 a settlement of more than $40 million.

Bloomberg just entered the 2020 presidential race ... and Raymond tells us why it would be hard to see an apology from the billionaire as genuine.

Elon Musk Wins the 'Pedo Guy' Case ... Jury Says No Defamation

Breaking News

Elon Musk just won his trial against the British diver in the Thailand cave rescue he infamously labeled a "pedo" -- a jury just decided Elon did not defame Vernon Unsworth.

The jury wasn't convinced Elon went too far with his tweet after Unsworth helped rescue the 12 boys trapped in a cave with their soccer coach back in 2018. It didn't take 'em long to reach their verdict Friday in federal court in L.A. -- a mere 50 minutes of deliberation.

Backgrid

Elon even took the stand this week to testify ... and while on the stand he apologized to Unsworth and said he didn't actually believe the guy was a pedophile.

As we reported, Unsworth sued Elon for defamation after the Tesla and SpaceX CEO called him a "pedo guy" while they were beefing on social media.

Unsworth ripped Elon's efforts to build a mini-submarine to help with the rescue ... calling it a "PR stunt" with "absolutely no chance of working" and telling Elon to "stick his submarine where it hurts."

Elon lashed back at Unsworth on Twitter, saying, "Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it."

Unsworth didn't get the win, but he did get Elon's apology under oath. That's something.

Meg Ryan Sells Island Home for $9 Million!!! So Long Chappaquiddick

Meg Ryan's no longer an island girl ... she's unloaded her Chappaquiddick Island mansion, and it's gotta connection with Barack and Michelle Obama's new island pad.

Our Massachusetts real estate sources tell us Meg just closed the deal to sell her 6,600-sq-ft crib for $9.125 million. She's been in the home -- which sits on just over 5 acres -- for about 10 years. We're told she bought it for about $6 million.

The spread has 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and isn't far from the water to the east and west. Translation: tremendous sunrise and sunset views from inside the home.

We know all you history buffs are wondering, so we Googled for ya. Meg's old place is less than 3 miles from the infamous Chappaquiddick bridge where Ted Kennedy crashed in July 1969.

Meg was repped in the sale by Tom LeClair and Gerrett Conover of Landvest. If those names sound familiar, it's because they're having a helluva week!

They also helped the Obamas close on their new $11.75 million estate on neighboring Martha's Vineyard.

We reached out to Gerrett and Tom about Meg's sale ... but they had no comment.

Kendall Jenner A Little Reading ... In Very Little Bikini

Mega

Kendall Jenner's down in Miami Beach, chilling on a yacht, soaking up the sun and hitting up parties, but she's still thinking about being someone else ... or so her reading list would suggest.

Kendall hopped on a yacht Friday -- the SS Groot to be exact -- and slipped into a tiny, burnt orange bikini. She's been in Miami all week for Art Basel, so of course, she still looked uber-fashionable by rocking a slick green jacket too.

As for her choice in literature -- she's reading "Tonight I'm Someone Else" by Chelsea Hodson, a collection of essays described as a thoughtful, passionate account of a woman's life experiences.

Kendall's recent experiences have included straddling Bella Hadid poolside and playing DJ at a popular nightclub, so if she wants to trade places with someone ... odds are she'll get more than a few takers.

Richard Grieco Busted For Public Intoxication ... Airline Says He's Too Drunk To Fly!!!

Exclusive

Richard Grieco of "21 Jump Street" fame tried to fly from Texas to Pennsylvania -- but he ended up in jail instead -- because according to cops, he had too much to drink.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ cops were flagged to Grieco's gate at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Thursday by an agent who denied him boarding. We're told Greico was hunched over the counter, yelling at employees and slurring his speech ... he also reeked of booze.

Cops say they sat Grieco down for a chat and he admitted to drinking two cranberry vodkas before the flight. Grieco was taken into custody for public intoxication and officers note he was very unsteady on his feet when they brought him in for booking.

Everett Collection

What's more, according to the arrest report -- obtained by TMZ -- Grieco had prescription Klonopin in his bag ... which he said he takes because he's a nervous flier. The cops note the pill shouldn't be taken with alcohol.

The airline booked Grieco another flight for Friday morning.

We reached out and spoke to Grieco who tells us the whole thing was an unfortunate incident and "not that big of a deal."

Antonio Brown Begs For Another NFL Shot Apologizes for 'Inexcusable' Behavior

Exclusive Details
IMAGN

11:19 AM PT -- That didn't take long ... Tom Brady has already liked AB's apology post on Instagram.

Oh, and sources close to AB tell us the apology is mostly geared toward things he's said and done on social media ... not the sexual assault allegations.

Our source also says AB desperately wants to play football again and is willing to do whatever it takes to convince owners he's worth taking a chance on.

Antonio Brown just issued a massive apology for his off-the-field behavior -- but there's one huge problem with his mea culpa ... it's unclear what he's specifically apologizing for.

"First and foremost, I’d like to apologize to my family, friends and anyone who I offended," Brown said on IG.

"I never once meant to make anyone feel like I wasn’t thankful and appreciative of the opportunity that I was afforded to play the game I love."

Here's where things get even murkier ... AB references "inexcusable" behavior -- but doesn't specify if he's talking about serious allegations like rape or stupid incidents like farting on his trainer.

"While my behavior was inexcusable, sometimes when people are coming at you with false information and allegations, we handle ourselves in ways that we sometimes regret."

Our takeaway from that line is that AB is referencing the menacing text messages he sent to a woman who had accused him of sexual misconduct.

The Patriots cut AB after they learned about AB's texts and the NFL has launched an investigation.

"I do take full responsibility for my actions and I’m working everyday to repair what I broke."

Brown then turns his focus on getting another shot in the NFL ...

"I do know that if I’m ever given the opportunity to play the game that I love, I’m going to work extremely hard to show the world how much I appreciate another chance."

"To the organizations that I offended, I offer my sincere apology to you and my hope is that you forgive me and help me move on from this minor setback."

Those organizations could be anyone from the Patriots to the Oakland Raiders to the Pittsburgh Steelers ... maybe even the Buffalo Bills.

As we previously reported, the Raiders had signed AB to a 3-year, $50 mil contract ... but he had drama with his helmet, his feet and had public spats with the GM and coach Jon Gruden.

The Patriots picked him up ... only to dump him right after the text message incident. Brown later bashed the Pats on social media and referenced owner Robert Kraft's prostitution scandal.

The Steelers couldn't wait to dump AB after he live-streamed a private locker room conversation ... and he went after QB Ben Roethlisberger in the media.

As for the Bills, there was interest in signing AB ... but he reportedly refused to play there and a potential trade never went through.

For his part, AB has been training like a maniac over the past few months -- and you gotta wonder if there's real interest from an NFL team looking to beef up the WR position before the playoffs.

Rosie O'Donnell No Barron Trump Apologies Needed Karlan's Making a Point!!!

Exclusive
SORRY NOT SORRY
TMZ.com

Rosie O'Donnell firmly believes the Stanford Law Professor who name-dropped Barron Trump didn't do anything wrong and hopes the testimony helps impeach the President.

We got Rosie and her BFF Ally Sheedy Thursday night outside the "Jagged Little Pill" musical in NYC and asked her about the GOP outrage over Prof. Pamela Karlan's wordplay. Not shockingly ... Rosie's team Karlan, all the way.

name-dropping
C-SPAN

She says Karlan made a fair point about POTUS, and it's being taken out of context to look malicious. Both Rosie and Ally think there was nothing mean spirited about it. Rosie thinks it's nice Karlan apologized but adds ... it wasn't necessary.

Rosie, of course, had her own controversy involving the President and Melania's son a few years back, when she posted a video questioning whether Barron was autistic.

She apologized to Melania for being insensitive and causing pain ... but clearly thinks Karlan's case is different.

As for the impeachment hearings, in general, Rosie admitted she's a total junkie. It's no secret she has a rooting interest and spells out the many reasons why she's on Karlan's side.

She also reveals her plan if the Prez does get kicked out of office.
