Casey Anthony I'm At Dollar Tree with RBG

11/18/2018 7:16 AM PST

Casey Anthony feels a connection to, of all people, United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ... seriously.

Anthony picked up a few things at a Dollar Tree Saturday in West Palm Beach, Florida. Check out her T -- a pic of RGB with the words, "Fight for the things you care about." She's been living in South Florida for years. He life seems lowkey and pretty normal. 

It's been just over a decade since Anthony was acquitted in the death of her daughter, Caylee.

Beto O'Rourke Don't Throw Shade on Beyonce ... She's Houston's Best

11/18/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Beto O'Rourke doesn't buy the criticism of Beyonce -- that she waited too long to throw her support behind him in the Texas Senatorial election -- to the contrary, he says it's hard to find anything from Houston more impressive than her.

We got Beto on Capitol Hill, and he can't say enough about Bey ... can't say enough because he's interrupted by a slew of fans who went nuts when they saw him.

As for Beyonce, some of Beto's supporters think it was too little, too late throwing her support behind him on the day of the election

Gotta say ... he's about as genuine as they come -- unspotted by the ever-present phoniness of politics.

The video's fun to watch. 

Marlon Wayans Trump's 'The Devil' Blames Prez For Deadly Wildfires

11/17/2018 1:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans tells us Donald Trump should feel right at home at the scene of the destructive California wildfires ... because the comedian thinks the President is "the devil."

We got Marlon on Saturday at LAX ... and he tells our photog it's ironic Trump is visiting areas devastated by the Camp Fire because he feels POTUS is ultimately responsible for the deadliest fire in California history. 

Check out the clip ... Marlon paints a picture of how he imagines Trump, and it's really dark. 

Trump arrived in Northern California on Saturday and he's surveying fire recovery efforts and inspecting the damage.

When the wildfires started scorching California last week, Trump blamed the flames on poor forest management and threatened to cut federal funding.  

After seeing the damage first-hand Saturday, Trump told reporters it's "very sad to see."

Bill Maher Trashes Stan Lee He Made Adults Stupid and Is Responsible for Trump

11/17/2018 7:26 AM PST

Bill Maher thinks Stan Lee is partly to blame for the dumbing down of America.

Bill wrote an essay on his blog, saying he has nothing against comic books, but they're for kids ... and when you grow up you should "move on to big-boy books without the pictures."

He mused that around 20 years ago, adults had a revelation ... "They didn't have to give up kid stuff. And so they pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature."

He pulls back slightly and says, "I'm not saying we've necessarily gotten stupider." But, then he bores in ... "The problem is, we're using our smarts on stupid stuff."

And, then he goes in for the kill ... "I don't think it's a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important."

Mike Judge, the creator of "Beavis and Butt-Head" and co-creator of "King of the Hill" and "Silicon Valley," had a very different view of Stan. 

Stan Lee died Monday at age 95

Tekashi69 Former Booking Agency Calls BS on $3.6 MIL Deal

11/17/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 is full of s**t if he thinks he was cheated out of a $3.6 million deal by his former booking agency ... so says a rep for the agency. 

Tekashi went on an all out assault on MTA Booking during an interview on "The Breakfast Club" Friday. He claimed the company stole a ton of cash from him ... and said he only received a couple hundred thousand dollars from what should have been a $3.6 million deal.

A rep for MTA tells us there never was a $3.6 million concert deal ... that was only something that came up in discussions as a possibility ... and the agency went above and beyond for Tekashi.

We're told MTA & Tr3way Entertainment handled the rapper's security, travel, transportation and worked around the clock to make sure he made it to his multiple court appearances safely. 

MTA tells us they booked 9 upcoming U.S. shows and 2 in Mexico for Tekashi -- all of which he promoted -- and was sent a $700k deposit for those. There were also 5 in Germany already booked for which he was paid close to $160k in deposits. 

MTA tells us they're considering serious legal action against 6ix9ine for bashing them on "The Breakfast Club."

Tekashi's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, hit back against MTA, telling TMZ, "We have asked [MTA] to show us any contracts with Tekashi69's signature showing they were acting as an agent to book performances on his behalf and they haven't provided us with any to date ... Their cooperation has been very limited."

He also stated, "I would take anything MTA says with a grain of salt," and added that they have asked MTA to cease and desist from booking any more shows for 6ix9ine.

11/17/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez was positive Donald Trump would let D.L. Hughley in the White House press room before Jim Acosta would ever be invited back, so imagine his SHOCK when he learned from us Jim's back in action!

Don't get George wrong ... he stands with Acosta. But, the Trump/Acosta fiery relationship makes George's attacks on Trump look like a pillow fight ... hence his surprise.

As for whether George thinks Trump will ever call on Acosta again during a news conference ... he seems to think Acosta growing up Latino will serve him well at 1600 Pennsylvania.

EXCLUSIVE

The dude who went viral for his "I'm Tyrone" Vine videos tells TMZ Sports he's ready to go from the phone screen to the squared circle ... saying he wants a crack at the WWE!!

In case you've never heard of Tyrone before ... the guy is a HUGE star on social media for his hilarious videos that featured him stealin' dudes' girls.

But ... Tyrone's done with all that now -- and says he's ready to move on to a career working for Vince McMahon.

"I'm like the next Mr. T," Tyrone tells TMZ Sports ... "The next Terry Crews. The next Deebo. All in one, man! That's how good I am, except, I'm more dangerous, because I f*ck wives!!!"

Tyrone says this ain't publicity stunt ... dude says he's got a legit MMA background and thinks he can be the company's next megastar.

In fact ... Tyrone's callin' out ALL the wrestlers in the biz -- tellin' them they're soft and swearing he's comin' for their wives next!!!

Rodney Peete On Clay Helton He's Done At USC Unless He Beats ND & UCLA

11/16/2018 9:54 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Clay Helton's days as a USC coach are numbered ... UNLESS he beats both UCLA and Notre Dame in the next two weeks -- so says Trojan Rodney Peete.

The former USC superstar tells TMZ Sports he's a fan of Clay and likes him personally ... but with the way SC's looked this season -- Peete says the dude is about to get fired.

"I think that over time, it's shown that we've kind of fallen off a little bit," Peete says.

The ex-QB ain't lying ... the Trojans won the Pac-12 the last two years -- but are just 5-5 this year and are in danger of missin' out on a bowl game completely this season.

Peete says it's gotten so bad, SC is probably gonna axe Clay ... unless he can come up with wins against the Trojans' biggest rivals these next two weekends.

"I think he's gotta win the next two games for sure to have even a shot to keep it."

It won't be easy ... the Bruins have been trash this year -- but the game IS arguably the sport's biggest rivalry. Plus ... the Golden Domers are ranked No. 3 in the country right now.

If Clay can't get it done ... Rodney tells us SC doesn't have to go out and get Nick Saban or Urban Meyer to turn things around -- and ya gotta hear why.

Michael Avenatti I'm Coming For You, Jacob Wohl

11/16/2018 6:31 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Avenatti sure doesn't seem worried about his felony domestic violence arrest, and he's literally pointing the finger at right-wing conspiracy theorist Jacob Wohl for what he says is a frame job.

We got Avenatti leaving Dan Tana's restaurant Thursday night in WeHo, and he tripled down that he is certain he'll be exonerated after an investigation, and then it's judgment day for Wohl.

Avenatti clearly thinks Wohl -- who was implicated in the false sexual misconduct claims against Robert Mueller last month -- has trumped up the domestic violence allegations against him. 

For his part, Wohl has denied he's behind the DV allegations.

And, Avenatti seems more than confident ... Stormy Daniels will remain his client, despite her wait-and-see comments Wednesday.

TMZ broke the story ... Avenatti was arrested after a woman claimed he battered her Tuesday night in his L.A. apartment.

Ann Coulter You're Nazi'ing What You Think In Wisconsin H.S. Kids Pic

11/16/2018 6:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ann Coulter says that viral photo of Wisconsin high schoolers doing the Nazi salute is absolutely NOT that, which she knows because -- her words, here -- there are NO Nazis in America.

We got America's conservative sweetheart trudging the snowy streets of Manhattan Thursday evening, and asked her about the Baraboo High prom pic of 60 male students very clearly raising their hands in a "Heil Hitler" fashion.

Ann admitted, "I don't know what it is," but quickly added she definitely doesn't believe the kids are Nazis.

In fact, she says we're all safe in America. Apparently, Ann has a short memory -- after all, Charlottesville was a whole 15 months ago.

As for the pic, one of the students has said his classmates were just doing a collective "joke" when the photographer told them to all raise their hands and wave goodbye. Hysterical. 

BTW, Ann is worried about violence against one particular group. Yes, she's part of that group. 

Jerry Rice Eli Manning Ain't A Hall Of Famer ... He's Not Good Enough

11/15/2018 12:42 PM PST

Jerry Rice says there's no debate in his mind ... Eli Manning doesn't belong in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"When I’m judging a player, I’m looking what he brings to the table. And, what I see with Eli Manning, there’s not consistency.”

The NFL's best-ever WR simply doesn't think Manning's good enough -- especially when compared to a true HOF quarterback like Drew Brees.

"I would think that Drew Brees is going to be a shoo-in," Rice said on the "Joe, Lo & Dibs" show on 95.7 The Game earlier this week.

"Eli? There’s a chance of him getting in, but I’m not going to say he’s a true Hall of Famer.”

Of course, the debate has REALLY heated up over the last two years -- given how terrible Eli has looked at the end of an up-and-down career.

On one hand ... dude does have two Super Bowl rings on his resume -- but on the other ... he's thrown 234 career picks and owns just a 113-110 all-time, win-loss record.

Some say the 2 'ships trump everything ... but not Jerry.

"I don’t see Eli as a Hall of Famer. Drew Brees, I do.”

Draymond Green K.D. Beef Helped Team 'Made Us Stronger'

11/15/2018 11:15 AM PST
Breaking News

Draymond Green says his heated argument with Kevin Durant -- one in which he repeatedly called K.D. a "b*tch" -- is only gonna make the Warriors better ... saying, "Good luck with us now!"

ICYMI ... the Golden State stars got into it at the end of a loss to the Clippers on Monday -- with Durant upset at Green in the huddle for a late-game turnover.

Green fired back harshly ... callin' Durant a "b*tch" multiple times -- and reportedly even letting the argument spill into the post-game locker room.

Green was eventually suspended one game -- and fined $120,000 -- for the altercation ... but told reporters Thursday the fight ain't gonna end the Warriors' dynasty.

"If this only makes Kevin, myself and the rest of my teammates stronger, that's what it's going to do," Green says.

In fact ... Draymond promised an EVEN BETTER version of the Dubs now.

"If you think you saw something before, good luck with us now. We not going to crumble off of an argument. We going to move forward."

That might be true for THIS season ... but Klay Thompson AND K.D. are free agents this summer -- and even Draymond couldn't guarantee their future with the team after that.

"At the end of the day, as I've said before, whatever Kevin decides, whatever Klay decides to do, whatever who decides to do, we had great years together and I support everybody wholeheartedly."

Floyd Mayweather The Tokyo Fight is Back On ... 'Gonna Make It Happen'

11/15/2018 9:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says the Tokyo fight that was on and then off ... is back on -- and he's telling TMZ Sports exactly how it's gonna go down.  

Remember, Floyd was supposed to fight 20-year-old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve ... but recently backed out ... saying promoters misled him about the scale and nature of the bout.

We talked to Floyd Wednesday night as he left Peter Marco jewelry in Beverly Hills ... and he told us the fight is very much alive.

"We're gonna make it happen."

Question is ... is it boxing, kickboxing or MMA?

"Rules? It's gonna be a little boxing exhibition. No kicking," Floyd told us ... "I'm moving around with the guy for 9 minutes, and of course it's gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever."

Bottom line ... the money's just too good to pass up, as long as the fight goes down on Floyd's terms.

"It's a no-brainer. Just because I'm retired from boxing," Mayweather says, "I still make appearances worldwide and make a ton of money."
