Priyanka Chopra She's Not Pregnant ... And the Booze Proves It

2/16/2019 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Priyanka Chopra is not pregnant, despite rumors she's carrying Nick Jonas' baby. 

We've spoken with folks who were around Priyanka Monday night in Los Angeles for the premiere of her movie, "Isn't It Romantic," and she was happily drinking. The actress hit up Osteria Mozza, where she was seen toasting friends and downing champagne. 

As you know ... the rumor mill went into high gear this week after Priyanka was photographed with what appeared to be a baby bump, this only days after hiding her stomach with a flowy dress. But, we're told the pregnancy rumors are all a bust.

Sources close to the newlyweds tell TMZ ... Priyanka and Nick are waiting to start a family, and we're told they're in no hurry. 

After all, it's only been two and a half months since Nick and Priyanka tied the knot ... we're told they're still enjoying each other's company, and she hasn't even fully moved into Nick's house.

Baby steps.

Ex-'Deadliest Catch' Star Busted for DUI, Gun and Drug Charges

2/15/2019 1:03 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Ex-"Deadliest Catch" star Jake Harris is sitting behind bars -- and has been for more than 3 weeks -- after he was arrested for felony DUI and drug possession ... TMZ has learned.

The incident went down back on January 23 in Skagit County, Washington where cops say the 33-year-old wouldn't identify himself to park rangers, who tried pulling him over. Harris took off with his RV, forcing state troopers to chase him down and force him to stop ... according to docs obtained by TMZ.

Cops say the trooper noticed signs of drug use once they pulled over Harris -- pinpoint pupils, bloodshot eyes and pale face. They also say he could not stand still ... shaking the entire time and talking fast. Meanwhile, a K-9 alerted cops to drugs in the RV.

Cops say they found a half ounce of heroin and other paraphernalia associated with the selling of drugs. Cops say they also found a shotgun Harris claims he bought from someone for $150 and a "ball" of heroin. Turns out it was stolen.

He was arrested and charged with 4 felonies -- DUI, possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a vehicle or premises for drug trafficking and possession of a stolen firearm. They also hit him driving on a suspended license.

Harris was skipper of the Cornelia Marie before leaving "Deadliest Catch" in 2012, and has struggled with drugs.

His bail's been set at $200k.

Glen 'Big Baby' Davis Cuts Deal In Weed Case ... I'm No Drug Dealer!

2/15/2019 10:23 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Glen "Big Baby" Davis won't go to jail after he was allegedly caught with a quarter-pound of weed ... TMZ Sports has learned the ex-NBA star cut a deal in his case and is officially off the hook.

The former Celtics PF was busted back in February 2018 after cops say they found 126 grams of marijuana on him along with $92,164 in a briefcase at his Maryland hotel.

He was arrested and hit with 7 charges -- including a felony count of drug possession with intent to distribute ... which carries a maximum of FIVE YEARS in jail.

But, Davis reached an agreement with prosecutors last month to avoid time behind bars ... agreeing to pay the maximum fine of $15,000 in exchange for having the charges dropped.

Technically, the case was placed on the "Stet docket" -- which, in Maryland, means the case is essentially inactive, but not entirely erased. The case can be reopened if Davis missteps in the next 3 years. It's NOT a conviction. Davis did not have to enter a plea. 

Davis' attorney, Margaret Mead, tells us it was a "reasonable resolution" to the case ... adding, "He wants to make a comeback and he's certainly not a drug dealer. He's not any of those things."

Davis played in the NBA from 2007 to 2015 -- winning a ring with the Celtics in 2008 -- and piled up 4,111 career points.

He joined the BIG3 in 2018 ... helping Power win the league's championship.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez No Shame in a President Smoking Weed

2/13/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has some refreshing thoughts on the highest office in the land ... she has no issues with a sitting President lighting up.

We got AOC Tuesday afternoon on Capitol Hill, and the instantly powerful Congresswoman made it clear ... if you don't have a problem with your Prez enjoying a drink, you should feel the same way about weed.

AOC knows a thing or two about liquor ... she's a former bartender. And, AOC is a strong supporter of the legalization of marijuana.

Ganja has been a political hot potato for years, with politicians sidestepping questions about smoking. 

2020 Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris made fun of Bill Clinton's famous line about not inhaling when she was on "The Breakfast Club" this week, acknowledging she's partaken in the past ... then quickly adding, it was a long, long time ago. The message ... don't worry, she doesn't smoke.

Seems politicians are still afraid of losing voters over sativa stigmas ... but not AOC!!!

AOC is strong -- no stigma, no shame. Gotta say, she makes some good points.

El Chapo Guilty on All Counts!!! El Locked Up for Life

2/12/2019 11:43 AM PST
Breaking News

11:35 AM PT -- The sketch artist in the courtroom caught the moment El Chapo and his wife exchanged thumbs-up after the verdict was announced.

Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman is guilty on all 10 counts he was facing in a Brooklyn federal court ... and he's now facing life in prison.

A jury of 7 women and 5 men returned the verdict Tuesday to wrap up a nearly 3-month long criminal trial that included up to 200 hours of testimony about drug trafficking, gold-plated AK-47s, diamond-encrusted pistols ... and an alleged $100 million payment to a former Mexican president.

After 6 days of deliberations, the jury returned guilty verdicts against Chapo for engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs and use of firearms.

Reporters in the courtroom say Chapo looks stunned by the verdict, and his wife, Emma Coronel, fought back tears ... even as she and Chapo gave each other thumbs up. 

It's been a wild ride for the Sinaloa Cartel's leader over these past few years. He was captured by the Mexican government in 2014, escaped more than a year later through a mile-long underground tunnel ... but got caught again in early 2016. 

He was extradited to the U.S. in 2017, and between then and last November -- when his criminal trial got underway -- there have been a series of weird motions and rulings about his life behind bars. Just to name a few, Chapo has had prison TV woes, prayer problems, love letter recommendations and made a heartfelt promise NOT to kill his anonymous jurors. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Chapo is looking at a mandatory life sentence ... without parole. Sentencing will be announced June 25.

Chapo's lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman -- who's in the unenviable position of losing the case -- tells us, "We're very disappointed but we fought like hell and left it all on the battlefield."

Notre Dame WR Javon McKinley Arrested For Drunkenly Punching Female Cop

2/11/2019 1:58 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Notre Dame wide receiver Javon McKinley was arrested Sunday morning after cops say he drunkenly tried to fight TWO officers, one of whom is a woman ... according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports

McKinley was a STUD coming out of high school a few years back -- where he shattered many California single-season records. He had 91 catches for 1,906 and 20 TDs as a junior!

But, the 20-year-old is now in major hot water after cops say he battered 2 officers in a drunken attack. 

According to court records, Notre Dame University Police officers were dispatched to help out a male who had passed out in the back of an Uber at 3:50 AM. 

The officers identified the man as McKinley and tried to help him to his dorm -- noting he reeked of booze. 

But, cops say during the walk to his room, McKinley freaked out, punched a male and a female officer and tried to flee. 

Cops eventually located McKinley and took him into custody with the help of ND firefighters. 

Both officers claim McKinley injured them when he punched them. 

Now, McKinley is facing 3 charges -- 2 counts of misdemeanor battery and 1 count of misdemeanor underage drinking. 

He's due in court Tuesday to be arraigned. 

McKinley has never really lived up to his potential on the field at ND -- partly due to injuries. He's only played in a handful of games and hasn't really been a factor.

As we reported ... Brandon's wife told us his heart stopped while he was sleeping in their Northern California home ... and now we know why.

The internet comedian, known as Young Busco, made a huge splash in 2015 after mocking a police officer's shoes as a joke. You'll recall, while his friend was being arrested, Brandon joked about the cop's clunky boots, saying, "What are those?"

The meme caught fire online ... and the catchphrase even appeared in "Black Panther." Michael Jordan was also jokingly asked, "What are those?" during a Q&A session at a basketball camp.

Brandon, who was a father of 9, was 31.

The ex-NBA star credits marijuana and CBD for helping him recover from the 12 strokes and 6 heart attacks he suffered after his 2015 drug overdose in Nevada ... and feels other people can benefit too.

EXCLUSIVE

Christina Milian's in for a stern talking-to over her role in an alleged scuffle with a bar bouncer, but she's off the hook for criminal charges ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney's Office tells us ... it reviewed the case and decided not to bring charges against the actress, who allegedly got caught up in an altercation in October at the Figueroa Hotel downtown.

Instead, the City Attorney has scheduled an informal meeting with Milian to discuss the incident and ways she can avoid similar issues in the future. Call it a verbal slap on the wrist.

We broke the story ... a fight broke out at the hotel bar after a bouncer blocked Christina from getting in, and one witness claimed she threw a drink. Her camp denied she threw anything and said the bouncer actually got physical with one of her friends.

All water under the bridge now ... as long as Christina's down with learning a lesson.

Luann de Lesseps Violates Probation You're Going To AA, Or Else

2/9/2019 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps is getting a wake-up call from her probation officer, because the PO says she's not keeping up with the terms of her probation from her drunken arrest case ... TMZ has learned. 

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Luann is failing to prove she's been attending the required 2 AA meetings per week ... and she's not complying with taking random sobriety tests. 

The 'Real Housewives of New York' star is not being punished for blowing off parts of her probation, but she's essentially being told to get it together, or else. In the docs, her PO says she's been under supervision for 6 months and has failed to comply with the conditions. 

As we reported ... Luann is on probation after striking a sweet plea deal. She has to knock out 50 hours of community service by August 28 ... and, according to the docs, she's halfway through, having completed 25 hours. 

As we reported, Luann was arrested on Christmas Eve in 2017 for attacking police during her bust. There's video of Luann telling a cop she'd kill him if he kept touching her. 

Bottom line for Luann ... she needs to get in line with the terms of her probation.

Gronk -- who was speaking with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday's 'The Tonight Show' -- says the aftermath wasn't pretty ... "I was bleeding all over on the parade on the duck boat."

In fact, the beer shot rattled the dude so much ... Rob says his dad had to step in to block other flying objects while his son recovered!!!

Good news for Gronk and Pats fans ... he says he's fine now -- nothing but a scratch.

Flying beer cans at Boston parades have struck before ... remember when the Red Sox World Series trophy was damaged by a rogue Bud Light????

Justin Bieber I Didn't Have Sex for a Year ... Before Marrying Hailey

2/7/2019 7:05 AM PST

Justin Bieber says he was celibate for a year before getting back together and eventually marrying Hailey Baldwin -- and it sounds like he did it (or didn't do it) for the man upstairs.

The Biebers are featured in a new interview with Vogue, where JB revealed that he'd decided to keep it in his pants for a full 365 days prior to reconnecting with his ex last year as a way of "feeling closer to God." He says he thought it would be a good way of bettering the condition of his soul ... and thinks God rewarded him with Hailey as a result. 

Even when they got back together, Justin says they refrained from sex until officially tying the knot in September during their NYC courthouse visit.

Bieber also says he had a "legitimate problem with sex" ... citing it as his remaining vice that didn't provide pleasure anymore. Speaking of vices, Justin also says he abused Xanax in his youth, adding ... "Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing" -- namely, his promiscuity. He also says his security would sometimes check his pulse at night to see if he was still breathing.

Welp, the Biebers are legally hitched now -- so it's safe to assume they've been busy between the sheets. They say one of their motivations in getting married last September was because of a desire to have sex.

Vince Young I'll Get Help After 2nd Drunk Driving Arrest

2/7/2019 5:51 AM PST
Breaking News

Vince Young says he's taking "full responsibility" for his drunk driving arrest this week -- and it sounds like he's about to check into rehab to clean himself up. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the former NFL star was arrested around 4 AM in Fort Bend County, Texas early Monday morning. It's the 2nd time the 35-year-old quarterback has been arrested for drunk driving. 

Young broke his silence on the situation Wednesday night -- saying, "I deeply apologize for letting my family, my friends and my fans down.

"With the help of God and my loved ones, I am going to take aggressive actions to make sure this never happens again. I take full responsibility for my actions."

While he didn't specifically say "rehab" -- seems that (or some kind of alcohol treatment) is the plan here. 

Young was arrested for drunk driving back in 2016 after cops say he was driving dangerously in Texas. He was sentenced to 18 months probation in that case and later apologized to his fans
