J Lo & A-Rod Made It Rain On Strippers ... For Research

5/13/2019 8:16 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's A-Rod talking about how he and J Lo have gone to multiple strip clubs together and spent thousands on dancers ... but he SWEARS it had nothing to do with getting freaky. 

It was all for "research" ... and Alex says it was the BEST work he's ever done!

Of course, Lopez is starring in the upcoming stripper flick "Hustlers" -- and Alex told the guys on "The Breakfast Club" he was more than happy to help Jen get ready for the role.

"I was out in L.A. She's in New York. She says, 'Baby, I'm going to the strip club.' I said, 'WHOA!! I'll be there on Thursday. We can go Thursday and Friday,'" Alex said. 

"I mean, it's part of due diligence, right?"

Alex says Lopez was a total pro -- and tried to learn everything she could about dancers ... but Alex says he's kind of an expert when it comes to the booty club. 

"She read and read and read [about strippers] ... I said, 'Baby, stop reading and just ask me. I got the info!'"

Alex says he almost knew "too much" about the stripper world -- "which was kind of scary."

Inside the clubs, Alex says the couple would pay THOUSANDS to women ... not to dance, but to talk. 

"We sat down with the girls, and we literally just interrogate them, ask them questions. Then, we would hit 'em up with $400 or $500 or $600. We weren't there for dancing, we were literally there for work."

Best job ever???

Roger Stone The Naked Truth ... Strip Club Gigs Paying My Defense!!!

5/6/2019 10:16 AM PDT

Roger Stone is under the gun and under-funded for his legal defense -- so, ironically, he's ripped a page out of Stormy Daniels' playbook -- making big money at a Virginia strip club.

Don't worry, President Trump's former campaign adviser remained fully clothed Saturday night at Papermoon Southside Gentleman's Club in Richmond. He was the guest of honor, though ... taking photos with fans and signing autographs ... sometimes right on dancers' asses.

The club's director of special events, Mike Dickinson, tells TMZ ... Roger was paid a flat fee to show up for the night and do quick meet-and-greets with fans. Entry to the event was $25 a pop, and that included a photo and autograph, if you wanted one. All in all, Dickinson estimates Stone was able to raise high 5-figures for his legal defense against a 7-count federal indictment.

Stone was there with his longtime associate, ex-madam Kristin Davis ... who got wrapped up in Robert Mueller's investigation. Stone is accused of soliciting stolen emails from WikiLeaks that could've helped the Trump campaign in the 2016 election. 

He's pled not guilty to all the charges -- and touted that again during the strip club appearance. 

Cardi B In Court for Strip Club Fight ... Shove Your Plea Deal, Okurrrrr!!!

4/19/2019 9:44 AM PDT
Breaking News

Cardi B is in NO mood to make a deal with prosecutors in her strip club beatdown case -- at least not the one she was offered Friday morning in court.

She was all business -- decked out in white -- as she walked through the rain, and into an NYC courthouse. As you know, Cardi's accused of ordering an attack on 2 strip club bartenders -- Jade and Baddie Gi -- last August. Cardi allegedly thought Jade had slept with her man, Offset.

Inside, prosecutors tried to play let's make a deal. The offer -- plead guilty to a misdemeanor, and get a conditional discharge. That would mean no jail time, but Cardi would have to stay out of trouble for some period of time.

That didn't appeal to her, and she rejected the deal before they could even discuss how long she'd have to keep her nose clean. The hearing didn't take long, and Cardi strolled back out ... silent as fans and photogs showed her love.

Cardi was arrested and booked in October for her alleged role in the strip club fight. She's facing charges of assault and reckless endangerment ... both misdemeanors.

Jade and Baddie G enjoyed some publicity after allegedly being attacked -- hanging out with Tekashi 6ix9ine and appearing in a Nicki Minaj music vid.

Rapper G Herbo Arrested for Getting Physical with Ari Fletcher

4/19/2019 5:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4/19 -- G Herbo was released from jail late Thursday night, and went on Instagram Live to talk about the altercation.

Rapper G Herbo is facing a battery charge after an argument with his baby mama, Ariana Fletcher, allegedly turned physical ... TMZ has learned.

According to Atlanta Police ... the rapper and Ari got into it Wednesday morning -- mostly yelling at each other -- but at some point, cops say Herbo assaulted her. Cops say he then left the location with their son but later returned ... and after officers spoke to him, they arrested him for simple battery.

Cops say Ariana sustained minor scratches during the altercation, and right now it's unclear what triggered the alleged assault. Cops are continuing their investigation. 

Perhaps complicating matters for G Herbo is the fact Ari is now dating boxer Gervonta Davis ... and is actually about 14 weeks pregnant with his child.

What's interesting is Ari and Gervonta were out partying Tuesday night at Allure Gentlemen's Club where G Herbo also happened to be. The trio was NOT there together. It's unclear if any encounter there might have led to the alleged assault the next morning. 

Herbo is still in jail. His bond has been set at $2,000.

Bre Tiesi Forget Manziel ... I'm Goin' to the Booty Club!!!

3/25/2019 8:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

**WARNING -- THIS CONTAINS PRETTY GRAPHIC VIDEO OF STRIPPER BUTTS** 

How do you get over Johnny Manziel? Strippers. Lots of strippers. 

That's how Johnny's wife Bre Tiesi distracted herself from the split over the weekend -- throwing money at some very talented twerkers ... all while Johnny was making his debut in the AAF. 

Ya probably know the backstory by now ... Bre went OFF on Johnny on social media over the weekend, essentially accusing the QB of cheating on her. She had already scrubbed him from her Instagram page. 

So, while Johnny hit the field with the Memphis Express on Sunday -- a HUGE step in his goal to make it back to the NFL -- Bre wasn't in the stadium or even watching on TV. 

Instead, she was making it rain and slapping butts in a strip club while celebrating a friend's birthday. 

As for Johnny, the 26-year-old looked pretty solid in his AAF debut -- talking trash to opponents while completing 3 of 5 passes, rushing for 20 yards ... and creating a few highlights in the process. 

Seems he's poised for a comeback on the field -- as for his marriage? Unlikely at this point. 

Jennifer Lopez Goes Pole Dancing A-Rod Shoots Clutch Video

2/19/2019 8:00 AM PST
Breaking News

Today we salute Alex Rodriguez ... for having the presence of mind to pull out his phone and start recording when Jennifer Lopez decided to go pole dancing. 

It's glorious. 

49-year-old J Lo is training for her role in the upcoming flick, "Hustlers" -- where she plays a stripper -- and decided to hit the pole to put in some work. 

Alex clearly liked what he was seeing and posted footage to social media. Excellent job, sir. 

As for the movie, it was inspired by the famous New York Magazine article, "The Hustlers at Scores" -- which chronicles a crew of dancers and their Wall Street clients in the wake of the financial crisis. 

The flick also stars Constance Wu from "Crazy Rich Asians."

Lopez said on "Ellen" she went on a crazy diet to tone up for the role -- and it looks like it worked! 

Cardi B & Offset Get Freaky on Valentine's Day ... Our Love's the S***!!!

2/15/2019 8:17 AM PST

Offset spoiled Cardi B on Valentine's Day with lobster, steak, champagne and diamonds -- but he also spoiled her attempt to drop a deuce! Yep, love stinks.

The Migos rapper spared no expense Thursday night, showering Cardi with TONS of gifts and romantic gestures. Fresh outta the doghouse ... Offset set up a candlelit bathtub session, and had his wife dripping in diamonds -- practically from head to toe.

But, the highlight of the night was Offset busting into the bathroom while Cardi attempted to, ummm ... clear the decks. Offset made it clear ... there was more than love in the air at that moment.

Check out the vid, 'cause in the end ... everything ended up exactly as you'd think.

The rappers hit up a strip club for some more booty action. It's kinda their thing.

Stripper Bowl Hip-Hop Stars Make $$$ Rain Down ... On ATL's Finest Strippers

2/6/2019 9:31 AM PST
Exclusive Details

2/6 -- Turns out the absurd amount of money spent on strippers at "Stripper Bowl" may have been even more ridiculous than we previously thought, according to one of the strippers working that night. 5 Star Jazzi posted a photo after the fact, claiming that she and her coworkers actually made a cool $3 MILLION Monday ... and split their earnings 25 ways. That's $120k per stripper!!!

However, other strippers there insist she's just fronting for the 'Gram, and that between the 111 strippers working that night, they all left with $2k each.

Big difference but, either way, not a shabby payday for 1 night's worth of work.

Pardon the stupid question, but do you wanna see what it looks like when more than half a million's floating around a club? Welcome to the Stripper Bowl!

ATL's own Quality Control Music, which reps Migos and Lil Baby, threw the ultimate send-off Monday night at the Gold Room club for all the exotic dancers who came to town for Super Bowl Weekend. We say the "ultimate" send-off, because they promised a full downpour of $500k ... and you gotta see how they delivered.

The bash drew a bunch of hip-hop stars -- Boosie Badazz, 2 Chainz, T.I. and Tiny, YFN Lucci, Trey Songz ... as well as Saints superstar Alvin Kamara.

The trophy for best entrance arrival easily goes to Lil Baby, though -- chopper for the win!

A post shared by @ qcmceo_p on

We're told QC's Pierre "Pee" Thomas was personally handing out stacks of cash to make it rain on the talent, and in the video you see several bankers boxes full of singles getting ripped open.

When it was all said and done, our sources say close to $600,000 was tossed, and you can see it all lining the club floor and bar surfaces.

Offset was there too, but as we told you, he's under a strict "no groupies" ordinance right now ... so tough environment, we're guessing. He and Cardi B hit up another club together earlier in the weekend but, surprisingly, no sign of her at Stripper Bowl.

Guess the AVNs are more her style.

EXCLUSIVE

Diddy caused pandemonium Saturday night outside Magic City Strip Club in Atlanta after pulling out a big fat wad of cash and hurling it in all directions.

We got the mogul first talking to a couple of guys outside the club, and it seemed to get tense. It's unclear what the beef was about, but it got heated.

In the end, it was all about the Benjamins. The crowd goes a little insane as the loot flies in the air.    

In the end, Diddy gets in his car and yells, "When I'm in town, everybody eats!"

EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B and Offset are clearly re-establishing the family unit ...  by enjoying a night out together at a hot club!!!

The couple hit up OAK in Atlanta Saturday at around 3 AM. They hung out together and enjoyed the show, all the while protected by security.

Cardi's made it clear ... there may have been some bumps in the road in her marriage, but she and Offset are determined to make it work.

We got Cardi Thursday at LAX as she FaceTimed her hubby. She didn't have a lot to say but made it clear ... the relationship is in repair mode. 

Asante Samuel Raves About Tom Brady ... And Atlanta Strip Clubs!!!

1/26/2019 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

What do Tom Brady and Atlanta strip clubs have in common???

THEY'RE BOTH THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!!

At least, according to Asante Samuel ... who tells TMZ Sports that Brady's still the G.O.A.T. -- and the booty clubs in ATL are too!

We got the ex-Pats DB just a couple days after Brady earned his 9th trip to the Super Bowl ... and Asante couldn't help but gloat about the correct Brady prediction he made to us last month.

"He's still the G.O.A.T. He's the best ever to do it. You can't compare him to nobody ... When it's time to make the play to win the game or the situational plays, he's the G.O.A.T.!"

Then, Asante -- who played 2 seasons for the Falcons -- broke down the strip club scene that fans will be faced with at SB 53 ... and tells us that, like Brady, they're the best too!!!

"The strip club is the main attraction, man. You go in there and see all the booty you want!"

Asante's FAVORITE Atlanta booty club?? Watch the video to find out ... and maybe you'll see him there if you make the trip next week!!!

ATL Strip Clubs Join Forces for Super Bowl Sunday ... We're All Open for Business!!!

1/16/2019 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Finally ... a story about people in this country coming together, despite their differences, to achieve a common goal AND give the economy a boost.

GOD BLESS ATLANTA STRIP CLUBS!!!

Here's the deal -- adult entertainment venues in the ATL aren't allowed to be open on Sundays unless they also serve as restaurants. This is obviously bad news for food-free joints hoping to take advantage of thousands of extra folks in town for Super Bowl 53 ... but they weren't going to let the business opp pass without a fight.

So, several of the city's popular strip clubs -- including Blue Flame Lounge, The Cheetah and Magic City -- banded together and went to City Council to ask for an exception for Super Bowl Sunday ... and they got it! Somehow no one found out about the meeting and reported it.

Those in charge also agreed to let the clubs stay open an extra hour the entire week of the big game ... so the lights won't come on until 4 AM from January 28 through February 4.

As for the entertainment, Jackie -- the owner of Blue Flame -- says it has girls coming from Miami, L.A., NYC, Houston, Virginia and North Carolina who meet all of its requirements for the special weekend -- bomb body, pretty face, smell good ... and no bullet wounds.

Mr. Magic from Magic City tells us he'll have professional pole experts in the house -- the same ones who danced with Cardi B at Coachella -- putting on a nude Cirque du Soleil-esque show.

BTW ... all the dancers are required to have permits in Atlanta -- which cost $350 -- so the strip club exception means cha-ching for the city too.

USA! USA! USA!

Great -- because here's Kim Zolciak and her family telling TMZ Sports the "can't-miss" and MUST-MISS strip clubs in the ATL!!!

Kim -- along with husband Kroy Biermann and daughter Brielle -- know every square inch of the strip club layout in Atlanta and walked us through the best and worst spots in the city.

In case you didn't know, the former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star used to wait tables at the Cheetah ... so she knows her stuff.

Watch. Take notes. Enjoy!
