Cam Newton Gives Up Sex ... To Be A Better QB!!!

3/22/2019 6:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Cam Newton says giving up sex will make him a better QB ... so the Carolina Panthers superstar is done with it!!!

For real!!!

Newton went on "The Late Late Show With James Corden" and -- in the process of explaining why he's going vegan -- he dropped a bomb saying he's done banging!!

"I hope this is an adult crowd, it looks like it is," Newton says ... "No climax."

So, why?!?! 

Cam says it's all part of a master plan to have a bounce-back season after a disappointing 2018.

The QB tells Corden he's taking on a different challenge every month -- it started with no gambling in January, no meat in February and now no sex OR WiFi in March -- in order to be mentally tougher.

"It makes my mind stronger," Cam explains ... "I feel like if I go back and I say I did those things, I'm mentally stronger."

The good news for Newton (and his GF)? He says the no-sex rule plan -- for now -- is only in place for one more week.

Good luck!!!

'Bill & Ted 3' It'd Be Excellent, Dudes ... If Ya Shot at the Real San Dimas HS!!!

3/22/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill and Ted are coming back to the big screen, which means they'll be back in San Dimas, and there's one place that would LOVE to have them this time around ... their real-life alma mater.

Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and the rest of the "Bill & Ted 3" crew are more than welcome to film any high school scenes at the real San Dimas High School ... according to the Bonita Unified School District, where SDHS thrives.

Better late than never. KR and AW announced 'B&T 3' was officially a go on Wednesday, which got fans of the cult classic series totally ready to be excellent to each other again.

Count the real San Dimas in on that too.

A BUSD official tells us ... while the district hasn't been contacted by anyone in the production so far, they'd be thrilled to provide a backdrop in the upcoming installment and would accommodate any filming. No one at the school or in the district is actively reaching out to studio heads to make it happen, but staffers are definitely trying to tweet it into reality.

Makes sense that SDHS would wanna be involved -- they were kinda snubbed on the first go-around. Most of the San Dimas High School scenes in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" were shot in Arizona ... nowhere near the real deal in the San Gabriel Valley.

Besides ... the real San Dimas High School has bodacious-ly embraced a classic line from the first film ... and use it on merch they sell, like this sweet T-shirt for $10.

And, if filming at the real school ain't in the stars, BUSD wants Keanu and co. to know they're welcome there any time. FWIW ... the school's 50th anniversary's coming up.

Who knows ... stranger things have been afoot.

Liziane Gutierrez Docs Botched My Botox ... My Face Feels Like It's Gonna Explode!!!

3/22/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Liziane Gutierrez is in the middle of another nightmare beauty procedure ... a procedure that went so bad, it could require major surgery to get it right.

The Brazilian model tells TMZ ... she went for botox and fillers for her face and lips last Tuesday in Brazil, but by that Sunday night, her face started feeling numb. When she woke up, her face blew up ... the pain was so intense, she thought her face was going to explode.

What's almost unbelievable ... Liziane cheated death last May when she went to Turkey for lipo and the surgery was botched so bad she was put in a coma for 5 days. She barely made it out alive.

As for her recent brush with the Almighty, Liziane tells us a doctor diagnosed her with a bacterial skin infection ... she was pumped full of antibiotics, to no avail, so a doctor's in the process of removing the fillers and botox. 

If the swelling doesn't significantly subside and if she's still in pain, Liziane tells us she's going to need more surgery to completely 86 the "enhancements" from her body.

Cardi B No Charges in Met Gala Attack

3/22/2019 4:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:59 PM PT -- Victim Giovanni Arnold's attorney, Daniel Szalkiewicz, tells us, "Our office was deeply upset to learn that the NYPD has decided not to prosecute Cardi B, Offset, or any of their body guards following their actions last year after the Met Gala."  

He continues, "Both my office and my client cooperated with the NYPD at every opportunity but had not heard from them since the weeks immediately following the incident ... We hoped that those responsible for Mr. Arnold’s injuries would be charged accordingly. It appears that was wishful thinking."

"What the NYPD did today was endorse violence. They have given Cardi B, Offset, and all celebrities a license to assault people who say things they don’t like; and that is a dangerous precedent to set." 

The security team for Cardi B and Migos is off the hook in an alleged assault on an autograph seeker at last year's Met Gala.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the rappers' security guards won't face any charges, and the assault case has been closed. We're told the alleged victim refused to be interviewed by NYPD detectives. That's despite the fact he was clearly seen on video catching a beatdown.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi, Offset and Quavo were all leaving a Met Gala party when the melee began. The rappers were accused of ordering their security team to put hands on an overzealous fan.

None of the security guards was ever arrested, and it was only CB and the Migos rappers who were facing potential criminal charges -- but now, everybody's walking away scot-free.

There's still a civil lawsuit, though. The fan's lawyer, Daniel Szalkiewicz, filed last May claiming he suffered injuries to his face, neck, back and body.

UFC's Tyron Woodley To Conor McGregor 'Quit Being a Bitch, Let's Fight'

3/22/2019 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tyron Woodley is calling out Conor McGregor because he feels it's the only fight that makes sense for BOTH guys ... and he's "dead ass serious."

"I want to fight Conor," Tyron said on "The Hollywood Beatdown."

"I'll fight him in Ireland. I'll fight him in the f*cking back alley of a White Castle ... want to go to Russia? Want to go to the TMZ newsroom?"

"Quit being a bitch ... let's fight."

So, why would Conor take that fight? 

Woodley points out that both guys are coming off losses in world title fights -- and since they're close in weight, it makes sense for them to battle while they wait for their shot to get their belts back

Of course, Conor has said he wants fights with Nate Diaz and Cowboy Cerrone in addition to a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov ... but Tyron says none of those fights are happening any time soon. 

"Looks like we dangling around Conor ... come get this smoke."

Woodley's last fight was 3 weeks ago when he lost the welterweight belt to Kamaru Usman, who seems to be on a collision course to fight Colby Covington next. 

Tyron says it doesn't make sense to refight other contenders he already washed in the welterweight division ... so Conor is the next best thing to a rematch with Usman. 

In fact, Tyron says he's healthy and hungry and ready to fight right now ... as long as Dana White can get Conor to sign a contract

Tyron and Conor have had beef before -- when they got into an altercation behind-the-scenes at the UFC 205 press conference back in 2016. 

Stay tuned ...

Vinny & Pauly D Ripped & Ready to Rumble On The Beach in Mexico

3/21/2019 4:45 PM PDT

"Jersey Shore" stars Pauly D and Vinny Guadagnino just got some serious G & T in on the beach ... soaking up the sun and looking ripped in the process.

The two reality star BFFs are in Cancun, Mexico working on their tans for their upcoming dating show. Pauly and Vinny first took a stroll through the sand before tearing up some serious waves on a jet ski ... all while showing off their tatted torsos. 

As for their new show -- it's called "Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny" -- and it recently got the green light from MTV. The show will feature 20 women looking to find love with the reality show bachelors. 

Both men have been super busy lately -- having booked shows around the world -- and Vinny continues to be a major part of the 'Jersey Shore' franchise. 

Their trip to Mexico was a little bit of business mixed in with the bro time and surf -- they are shooting MTV's "Spring Break" which will air next week. Whatever the reason, each guy certainly looks ready to play the field, sandy or otherwise.

Domestic Terrorist Cesar Sayoc Pleads Guilty to 65 Felonies ... for Mailing Pipe Bombs

3/21/2019 3:52 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cesar Sayoc -- the domestic terrorist who pledged allegiance to President Trump and mailed pipe bombs to former President Obama, CNN and others -- is pleading guilty to a whopping 65 felonies.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced Sayoc's plea Thursday in a Manhattan federal court. The felonies include mailing 16 counts of using a weapon of mass destruction for mailing the improvised explosive devices in the October domestic terrorist attack.

Sayoc also pled guilty to multiple counts of interstate transportation of an explosive, illegal mailing of explosives with intent to kill or injure another and carrying an explosive during the commission of a felony.

Punishment for the WMD charges can be up to life in prison. He'll be sentenced in September.

As we reported ... Sayoc was arrested in Plantation, FL after law enforcement swarmed a van covered in pro-Trump stickers. Sayoc set off panic across the nation after a rash of explosive packages arrived at the homes of prominent Democrats ... first at the home of liberal philanthropist George Soros.

Cops also intercepted packages intended for Bill and Hillary Clinton and then the Obamas.

Sayoc -- who has an extensive criminal history -- was a fixture at Trump rallies. He was also a stripper. As we first reported ... he worked for a Chippendales knockoff company.

Rich the Kid Spins the Wheel of Fortune w/ $450k Chain!!!

3/21/2019 3:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid still subscribes to the mantra "if ya got it, flaunt it" ... armed robberies be dammed.

The rapper scored this incredible spinning chain after dropping a whopping $425,000!!! Celeb jeweler Eliantte was commissioned to do the one-of-a-kind mastery. The entire piece features 250 carats of all VS diamonds. There's also the glitzy Cuban link chain.

So, why'd RTK drop as much money as your average Joe drops on a modest home? It's to celebrate the release of his new album, "The World is Yours 2," which, BTW, is what's inscribed in the center of the pendant. Rich's sophomore album -- slated to drop at midnight -- features Big Sean, Offset and Lil Pump among others.

Rich's no stranger to showing off his worth. But, as we've also reported ... Rich's also no stranger to getting jacked. This robbery landed him in the hospital and this robbery resulted in a member of his entourage getting pistol whipped.

He's said in the past he doesn't need security ... but Rich might wanna rethink that strategy with this new bling.

Just saying.

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Back in Jail ... Showed Up to Court Drunk!!!

3/21/2019 5:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:29 PM PT -- Tommie just apologized for showing up to court drunk ... she says she needs help and is seeking treatment. 

Tommie says, "I've been working really hard through my problems considering the challenges that's been set before me since I've been home. I've done all that I can do on my own to shake my habits but I do realize that I need help and I am currently seeking treatment."

Tommie Lee needs some serious help, because she's back in jail for being extremely drunk ... during a court appearance!

The former 'Love & Hip Hop' star showed up to court last week in Cobb County, GA for a hearing in her child abuse criminal case. Law enforcement sources tell us she appeared to be intoxicated -- so much so the judge ordered her to undergo drug and alcohol testing immediately.

Spoiler alert -- the new mug shot was also a dead giveaway -- but she failed. We're told Tommie's BAC was 0.16 ... twice the legal limit, and a violation of her bond. Tommie was arrested on the spot, and no bail's been set yet. 

You'll recall ... Tommie was trying to get approval to move to Cali for work while she was out on bond, but a judge shot her down ... citing her long rap sheet as the reason. She's currently facing multiple charges of child abuse for her October 2018 arrest.

According to prosecutors, Tommie disrupted her daughter's class, slapped her hands and face, dragged her out by her hair and slammed her into a locker. She was indicted earlier this year, and faces up to 54 years in jail if convicted on all 7 charges.

As it stands, she might be behind bars until her trial starts. We've reached out to Tommie's attorney for comment ... so far, no word back.

Prosecutors to Robert Kraft We Won't Help Keep Spa Vid Private ... The Question is Why???

3/21/2019 12:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Kraft's bid to make sure his prostitution sting video doesn't see the light of day might be a little more difficult ... because prosecutors are refusing to play ball.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... the State's Attorney's Office in Palm Beach County declined to join in on the motion Kraft and 14 other suspects filed Wednesday in Florida ... seeking to prevent the release of any evidence, including video footage from inside the Orchids of Asia spa.

This is a big deal because if prosecutors were on board with the motion to protect the evidence, it would be much more likely the judge would sign off on it. However, prosecutors opted to let Kraft and the other alleged Johns fly solo with their motion, so it's unclear if they'll get their wish.

This begs the question -- why wouldn't the State's Attorney want to cooperate in the effort to keep evidence under wraps?? Especially considering it's an open investigation where police have, very publicly, claimed to be concerned about alleged victims.

We put that question to the State's Attorney's Office, and got a "no comment."

As we reported ... Kraft and the other suspects in the sting were offered a plea deal. It would require Kraft to complete a course about prostitution, 100 hours of community service and submit to an STD test, while also admitting he'd be found guilty if it went to trial. In exchange, the charges would be dropped.

It's pretty clear to us ... the deal's a non-starter for Kraft because it would be just like being convicted -- at least under the offered terms. It seems prosecutors want leverage over Kraft in negotiating a plea deal ... and the video is their weapon.

The Devil Wears Prada Myspace Deleted Our Songs ... So Good Riddance!!!

3/21/2019 2:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Okay, first off ... yes, Myspace is still a thing, but it's pissed off users by accidentally deleting millions of songs -- and one band that lost its work forever has an odd reaction.  

Mike Hranica, guitarist and vocalist for The Devil Wears Prada, tells TMZ ... they lost some of their early songs because of Myspace's data migration gaffe. Instead of railing on the platform, Mike says it's a refreshing way to say goodbye to the past. 

Back in the day, Myspace helped launch many young acts -- including TDWP, Lily Allen and Arctic Monkeys -- serving as a digital platform for music fans around the world. But, news emerged this week that Myspace accidentally deleted all music uploaded to the site from 2003-15 ... roughly 53 million files!

Myspace initially told users it would recover the files, but this week the company finally admitted the tunes are never coming back. Some artists lost all of their work ... but Mike tells us he doesn't feel sorry for them, because they never should've trusted the outdated platform. 

Check out the clip ... Mike kisses his songs goodbye, and takes a few friendly jabs at Myspace.
