IF THE PRICE IS RIGHT ...
TMZ.com

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is not willing to dance for Chippendales despite his rock-hard abs and background as a stripper ... Sitch says the male revue can't afford him!!!

We got the "Jersey Shore" star and ex-con in New York City, and our photog asked Mike if he's ever going to follow Vinny Guadagnino's lead and join the famous production in Vegas.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Easy to see why folks think Situation and Chippendales are a match made in heaven ... the reality star is all about his abs.

There's also some history between the two ... Sitch judged a Chippendales competition back in October, but couldn't be coaxed into taking off his shirt.

WATCH AND LEARN
TMZ.com

And, there's this ... "Jersey Shore" alums have a history of bringing in huge box office numbers at Chippendales. Vinny was such a smashing success last year, they brought him back for an extra 6 weeks.

Situation isn't shutting the door on a potential run at Chippendales ... but he's channeling Cuba Gooding Jr.'s character in "Jerry Maguire" and telling Chippendales to show him the moola.

Offset 28th Birthday Does Not Disappoint ... Cardi B Cheers on Stripper During Lap Dance!!!

LAP OF LUXURY

Offset and Cardi B had way more fun than you Friday night ... at least that's a safe bet!

There was a pretty spectacular party in downtown L.A. in celebration of the 28th birthday of the Migos member.

Backgrid

Where to start. Lots of strippers. A bank safe full of bills ... it's a combination that never fails. Offset got a lap dance as his wife cheered both him and the stripper on. The forecast was rain and plenty of it, due in large part to Offset's tried-and-true technique.

As for eats ... Popeyes chicken sandwiches for starters.

BTW ... Migos has partnered with Uber Eats and Popeyes to launch a "Migos Menu" with different deals named after each member. The promotion was launched after Quavo posted an Instagram video of himself selling Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches from his car for $1,000 a pop!)

When the party ended, Cardi shows us a floor littered in $1s.

Happy birthday Offset, and way to throw a party!!!

Cardi B Nigerian Strippers LOVE Me!!! 1st Africa Gig Already LIT

BLESS THE RAINS DOWN IN AFRICA

Cardi B's gonna mess around and bring floods to Africa ... if she keeps making it rain the way she did in a Nigerian strip club ahead of what's going to be a historic gig for her.

Actually, Cardi's already making history if you ask the dancers inside the club she took over Friday night in the city of Lagos. Not only did seemingly EVERY stripper jump in a giant selfie with the rapper, but they went home covered in naira.

Here's your international travel tip for the day: Nigeria's currency is the naira, and Cardi came with stacks on stacks on stacks of 'em when she hit the VIP. The video is pretty insane.

While the DJ pumped Cardi's music, every stripper got a chance to entertain the queen.

Mind you, this is a business trip. Cardi's performing at the Livespot X Festival Saturday in Lagos, and then in neighboring Ghana on Sunday. This is Cardi's first time on the African continent, and she said on IG she wants to experience the "real" Nigeria ... not just a hotel.

She's off to a great start!!!

BTW, don't be alarmed by the video -- it's about 400 nairas to $1 US -- so Cardi won't go broke in the club.

Exclusive
STRIPPER BOWL

Offset, Takeoff, Quavo and Saweetie don't make it rain in the strip club, they make it downpour ... because together they dropped a staggering $45,000 on strippers in less than an hour!!!

Saweetie was at VLive Los Angeles last night hosting the strip club's weekly Reign Sundays promotion when Migos showed up and helped her throw around an insane amount of cash ... and we've got it all on video.

Our sources say Migos pulled up to the club around 1:20 AM and by the time the rappers left at 2 AM, they helped Saweetie drop $45k on exotic dancers. Now that's a nice hourly rate for the girls!!!

The money was flowing, and so was the booze ... we're told the club comped bottle service for Migos and Saweetie -- rose, Patron and Hennessy.

So, what's the difference between Migos and Diddy?!? Diddy makes it rain OUTSIDE the club.

Farrah Abraham & Jen Harley Strippers & Pizza in Las Vegas!!! (What Could Possibly Go Wrong???)

Farrah Abraham is helping Jen Harley get over her drama with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro by hitting a Vegas strip club for a pizza party with the dancers!!! Beats therapy, right?

Farrah and Jen were among the reality TV stars throwing cash around Crazy Horse 3 Thursday night for the clubs 10 year anniversary. When it was time to take a break from making it rain, they decided to chow down on some za -- cause everyone knows strip club food is always gourmet.

As if Jen feeding slices to a topless dancer wasn't random enough -- "90 Day Fiance" star Larissa Dos Santos Lima also got in on the action.

LIVIN' IT UP
Crazy Horse 3

The whole scene -- pure decadent fun -- was a 180 from the one Jen was in earlier this month when Ronnie was arrested in L.A. after an alleged domestic violence incident with her.

She seemed to be putting in her rear view on Thursday night. As we reported, Jen and the 'Jersey Shore' star have told friends they're done for good this time ... and plan to do what's best for their daughter.

Fun fact: Vegas Strip icons George Wallace and Murray the Magician joined the fun too. No word if they had pizza.

Snoop Dogg On Risque Kansas Gig That's What I Do!!!

Breaking News
TMZ.com

Snoop Dogg ain't apologetic about his raunchy booty and money-throwing performance at the Univ. of Kansas this weekend ... saying he had one hell of a time, and the school should've known what they were getting into!

Of course, the rap legend pulled out all the stops for the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team's annual Late Night in the Phog pep rally on Friday ... complete with pole dancing women and money guns.

After the show, KU officials apologized saying Snoop's camp assured them before the show that his performance would be more family-friendly than his usual schtick.

D-O-Double-G addressed the show on the Howard Stern show Tuesday ... saying EVERYONE was loving it, and he was shocked when the school released an apology.

"The audience enjoyed that sh*t," Snoop said. "I don't know what the f*ck they talking about."

Stern asked Snoop about being asked to leave after the performance ... which he denies.

"That's a motherf**king lie. I had the time of my life. I enjoyed myself, hung out with the basketball teams."

Snoop believes the apology came from the backlash the school got after the performance ... and insists his time there was nothing but positive.

"I think it was more the publicity of what I did. they had to cover it up. And, I respect them, and I wasn't gonna put no smut on their name and say they did anything wrong because they invited me to come do what I do."

"And, when you pay for Snoop Dogg, you gon' get Snoop Dogg."

Damn right.

Snoop Dogg Dancers on Poles Piss Off Jayhawks ... KU Issues Apology

THE POLE-ARIZING PERFORMANCE
KUsports.com/@BentonASmith

We all know ain't no party like a Snoop Dogg party, but Snoop's idea of fun -- dancers on stripper poles -- has the University of Kansas apologizing to its loyal hoops fans.

Snoop performed Friday night at the KU Jayhawks annual Late Night in the Phog -- a preseason pep rally of sorts -- and it looked like one of his typically awesome shows. As he strolled around the court rapping ... his backup dancers were putting in work on multiple stripper poles. Think "Hustlers" ... minus J Lo.

However, the university says it wanted a PG show from the hip-hop legend. KU's Director of Athletics Jeff Long says, "We made it clear to the entertainers’ managers that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show."

'Hustlers' Real Ramona Lawyers Up Pay Up, Or Else!!!

Exclusive
TMZ/Annapurna Pictures

The real-life stripper who inspired Jennifer Lopez's character in "Hustlers" wants the studio to ante up some serious cash ... or else.

Samantha Barbash's legal team just fired off a letter to STX Entertainment -- the studio behind the hit film -- demanding it pay up for its use of Barbash's likeness, personality, biography and identity in connection with the promotion of the film.

According to the letter, obtained by TMZ, Samantha's lawyer Bruno Gioffre reminds the studio Barbash "unequivocally rejected all offers to be included in the film." Barbash wants STX to resolve "the flagrant violation of her rights."

'Hustlers' Real-Life Ramona Rips J Lo ... She Played Me without Talking to Me!!!

Exclusive
THEY DID ME DIRTY
TMZ.com

Box office numbers be damned, Jennifer Lopez failed in her "Hustlers" role because she didn't do her homework ... at least according to the real-life strip club host who inspired J Lo's character.

We got Samantha Barbash in NYC Tuesday and she went nuclear about the deal that was NOT made before the movie was made. She says a "Hustlers" producer, not Jennifer, contacted her to see if she would sign away her rights.

She claims the offer was downright disrespectful, but ya gotta hear how Samantha describes it -- especially if you know anything about Hermes handbags!

She's also pissed because J Lo never spoke to HER about playing HER -- and she thinks it shows in the movie. One scene in particular really rubbed Samantha the wrong way, and she walked out of the movie super early.

"Hustlers" grossed over $33 million in its opening weekend, and Samantha thinks that's just because people wanted to see J Lo on a stripper pole, which ... TBH, actually sounds like a perfectly good reason to buy a ticket.

As for getting screwed on the movie deal -- Samantha's now cashing in with her own book about her story.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

One thing she loved about the flick was Cardi B's performance ... but says she got the wrong role.

A MAN OF THE PEOPLE

Leave it to Diddy to flip the strip club game on its head -- causing chaos outside Magic City in Atlanta by pulling out a fat stack of cash, handing it to fans ... and then bolting with Lori Harvey.

The wild scene went down Saturday night, when the mogul walked out of the club and started passing out money to people on the street. It's the kinda "making it rain" move we're used to seeing IN the club, but the crowd went nuts and clearly appreciated Diddy's generosity.

He was whisked into a waiting Bentley, but someone was missing ... Lori!!!

Turns out, Diddy's GF was in the Rolls-Royce following Diddy's car, but when his team realized .. they quickly reunited the couple. Can't leave ya girl behind!!!

Speaking of which ... Diddy also didn't forget to shower the Magic City strippers with a mountain of cash, He spread it around, along with mega-producer Jermaine Dupri, Mack Wilds and Jim Jones. Ballin'!

Diddy, Lori and co. hit up Magic City and had an interesting guest tagging along -- Diddy's son Justin Combs.

Remember, Justin is rumored to have dated Steve Harvey's 22-year-old daughter before she started getting serious with Diddy. Hanging in the strip club together is just more proof things aren't the least bit awkward between son and dad ... and Lori.

Stormy Daniels Columbus Cops Are Getting Their Due ... For Bogus Strip Club Bust

Exclusive
THEY STOLE MY EARRINGS
LionsShareNews.com

Stormy Daniels is getting a taste of justice after the Ohio cops who busted her at a strip club last year are now facing some consequences ... but she ain't done with them yet.

The ex-adult film star was beaming Friday night as she strolled through LAX -- without any makeup at that -- as she reacted to the news that five of the officers who went undercover and arrested her at a strip joint in Columbus will be reprimanded by their department.

When a pap asks how she feels about the update a year later -- she actually corrects him with a more precise time frame (387 days, to be exact) ... so yeah, she's definitely been keeping tabs on the case.

She also doubles down on what's come to light about the arrest since it went down -- that it never should've happened, and it was completely bogus. Stormy was a guest at the venue she was performing at -- she was just booked for a special appearance -- and the no touching law the Columbus cops tried nabbing her on only applies to regular employees.

The charges were dropped, and since then ... Stormy also sued some of those officers, and she tells the photog here that the lawsuit's still on. In the filing, she claimed the cops targeted her for speaking out against Trump ... alleging the arrest was purely political.

She obviously wants damages, but funny enough ... there's one other thing they could give her that might smooth things over.

As for DT, her former attorney Michael Avenatti and the upcoming presidential election -- well, she's got some thoughts on all of the above. Check it out ... classic Stormy.

UFC's Jon Jones Strip Club Pics From Night of Alleged Incident

Exclusive
TMZSports.com

TMZ Sports has obtained pics of UFC star Jon Jones and his brother Chandler Jones inside  TD's Eubank Showclub in Albuquerque on the night of an alleged incident with a cocktail waitress.

TMZSports.com

As we previously reported, Jon is being investigated over allegations he slapped a woman's vagina during a wild night out on April 19. The waitress told police Jon had been pestering her for a table dance before kissing up on her neck.

The woman also claims Jon later came up from behind her and put her in a "tight rear naked choke hold" and then lifted her up in the air in what felt like a "wrestling match."

The person who shot the photos tells us Jon was interacting with women all night ... but the witness did NOT see anything that resembled slapping, choking or any of the other violent allegations.

Obviously, that's just one person's perspective -- we're trying to speak with other people who were there that night too. Stay tuned on that.

You can see in the pics, Jon and Chandler were sitting right in front of the stage -- and we're told people inside recognized them. In other words, they weren't trying to lay low.

After Jon and Chandler left the club, the accuser went home and called police. After telling her story to cops, Jones was charged with misdemeanor battery.

As for Jon, he's adamantly denied the allegations ... and his rep, Denise White, previously told us, "We are confident that Jon will be cleared from any and all charges and this will be seen for what is, a baseless claim."

Da Brat Defends Jermaine Dupri ... 'Strippers Rapping' Is Necessary Convo

Exclusive
CONVERSATION STARTER
LionsShareNews.com

Da Brat is going to bat for Jermaine Dupri ... she sees a silver lining in his controversial comments about today's female artists, even though he said they sound like "strippers rapping."

Da Brat was at LAX Tuesday when a photog asked about Jermaine stirring up controversy and firing up Cardi B ... DB says his hot take is part of a master plan to start a discussion that's a long time coming.

In case you missed it ... last week Jermaine said Da Brat paved the way for women in the rap game, but when he was asked about his favorite contemporary female artists, he said the industry is filled with the same content from different voices, and they all sound like strippers.

Da Brat explains why she thinks Jermaine's comments were taken out of context, which is debatable ... but she says it doesn't matter anyway because he's helping stir up publicity for ALL female rappers.

UFC's B.J. Penn Fights Strip Club Bouncer In Street ... New Police Audio

EXCLUSIVE JUNE 2019
STREET FIGHT
TMZSports.com

6/26 10:02 AM PT -- TMZ Sports has obtained dispatch audio from the incident in which you can hear a law enforcement official tell officers, "BJ Penn is back there trying to fight everybody. No weapon."

When cops arrived to the scene, the officers told dispatch Penn had "ran off" and was no longer at the club.

THE DISPATCH AUDIO

8:31 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops DID, in fact, respond to the club after receiving a call about an "argument at an adult night club."

However, we're told Penn was NOT arrested -- and a warrant for his arrest has not been issued.

In fact, we're told the victim has not come forward to police and cops are not currently investigating.

It's possible the victim could still go to cops ... but seems unlikely at this point.

In other words, they scrapped and it's over.

UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn got into a fight with a bouncer at a strip club in Honolulu late Monday night ... with the altercation spilling onto the street ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

We spoke with the owner of Club Femme Nu who told us Penn was escorted out of the bar around midnight because he was acting "very drunk."

While the 40-year-old MMA legend was being escorted out, things turned physical -- and Penn began to fight the door guy.

Multiple witnesses watched as Penn -- a former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion -- smothered the door guy to the ground and took control over the other man. At one point, you can see Penn shoving his forearm into the other man's throat.

Several men can be heard asking B.J. to stop fighting and let the guy up -- but he never does.

One of the bystanders finally decides he's seen enough and begins punching Penn in the head in an attempt to end the fight ... but the other men call him off, so B.J. and the bouncer can finish their fight 1-on-1.

Eventually, someone calls the cops and we're told several squad cars arrived at the scene -- but B.J. had already left the premises by the time the officers got there.

Attempts to reach Penn for comment were unsuccessful.

Kandi Burruss' Hubby Taking My Daughter to the Strip Club ... Brings Us Closer Together!!!

EXCLUSIVE
COOL DAD ENERGY
TMZ.com

'Real Housewives' fans chewed out Kandi Burruss' husband for bringing his adult daughter to a strip club to celebrate her birthday, but hear him out ... he has an interesting defense.

'RHOA' star Todd Tucker says he has ZERO regrets about taking 23-year-old Kaela to see some T&A up close for her big day -- despite the fact he was getting dragged over it on social media after posting a video of the, umm ... unique father-daughter outing.

Don't worry ... ya don't see anything too raunchy here, and it looks like his kid isn't even looking at the dancer's booty in this shot. Still, it caused quite a fuss in the Insta-verse.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

We asked Todd why he thinks it was appropriate to bring his daughter to such a sexually-charged environment and he tells us quite simply ... it makes for great bonding.

Check out his answer ... Todd says more parents should follow his lead, and if they did, they'd have better relationships with their kids. The way he sees it, smacking "a couple of booties" with your kid could be the best way to maintain close ties, especially as they get older.

Todd also says this kinda family outing is in his genes!!! Really. You gotta hear what his mom did for him.

Maybe he's on to something, here ... but probably not.

Hehe ... go hard.
