Donald Trump Appears to Flip Off Patriots Owner Robert Kraft After His Statement


Donald Trump

Giving Robert Kraft the Bird on TV?!!

9/24/2017 3:41 PM PDT

Donald Trump is no master of subtlety … ’cause it DEFINITELY looks like he just gave New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft the finger on national television.

A reporter asked Trump Sunday what he made of his friend, Kraft, releasing a statement that was — in no shortage of words — clearly anti-Trump, at least in this case. Trump said he thinks Kraft’s ideas are disrespectful to the country … then wiped his brow with his middle finger. 

Kraft released a statement Sunday saying he was “deeply disappointed” by the tone of Trump’s comments earlier this week — ya know, how owners should fire the “sons of bitches” who kneel in protest, and that fans should boycott the NFL if players keep doing it.

Trump also said he hadn’t been tuning in to the actual games Sunday … even though he was tweeting about NFL-National Anthem related matters all day.

Audrina Patridge Meets with Corey Bohan to Hand Off Daughter for Visit Amid Divorce Drama


Audrina Patridge

Meets with Corey for Kid Exchange

… Amid Divorce Drama

9/24/2017 2:30 PM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Audrina Patridge met face-to-face with her estranged hubby, Corey Bohan, this weekend to drop off their 1-year-old daughter for a dad visit … this after filing for divorce and claiming domestic abuse.

Paps got Audrina and Corey Sunday morning at a neutral location in the Orange County, which was agreed to through a judge. We’re told Corey arrived first, and Audrina showed up with their kid, Kirra, and a friend about 10 minutes later to make the exchange.

You can see them heading back to the parking lot together — with Audrina slightly keeping her distance from Corey as she walks ahead. Still, it’s interesting she’s comfortable meeting with him at all considering everything she’s alleged. 

TMZ broke the story … Audrina filed for divorce and got a restraining order, claiming Corey shoved her, called her a “f**king c**t” and planted cameras to keep tabs on her. Corey denies installing the cameras, and claims her dad physically threatened him. 

Corey also said he hadn’t seen Kirra in 2 weeks because of the timing of Audrina’s restraining order, which affected his latest scheduled visit. He definitely looks overjoyed to see her.

Kevin Hart Extortion Case, Authorities Now Confident They'll Catch the Culprits


Kevin Hart Extortion Case

Authorities Now Confident

They’ll Catch the Culprits

9/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Authorities who are on the hunt for the Kevin Hart extortionists now believe they will catch the culprits … based on a treasure trove of evidence they’ve just seized.

TMZ broke the story, search warrants have already been executed and now we know the information authorities have amassed connects multiple people they believe were involved in the plot to squeeze 7 figures from Hart in return for keeping the sex tape secret.

We’re told phone records seized are critical … showing who called who and when. But we know authorities also have their sights set on cellphones and computer hard drives.

As for who the culprits are … authorities are keeping that close to the vest, but we’re told none of the suspects are part of Kevin’s world. We’re told there were a number of people partying with Kevin and sex tape partner Montia Sabbag, and most if not all of them knew her, but Kevin knew none of them.

We’re told Sabbag and her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, are scheduled to meet with investigators, but not before next Wednesday. You would think they’d want to meet her earlier, but that’s not the case.  

Our sources say investigators want to analyze all the information they get from the warrants before sitting with Sabbag, because they will help them hone in on the questions they want to ask her. Sabbag insisted at her news conference she was not part of the extortion plot.

PodcastOne Founder Norm Pattiz Sued for Pulling Gun on Ex-Employee


PodcastOne Founder Sued

He Pulled a Gun to Intimidate Me

Into Fudging Podcast Data

9/22/2017 4:45 PM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

5:57 PM PT — Pattiz tells TMZ, “This guy must be crazy. I’ve never met alone with him. I didn’t hire him or fire him. I barely know who he is. The fact that I’m a law enforcement reserve is well known as I have public service awards in my office.

He adds, “I didn’t and would never act in the manner that’s been described.  We have received no lawsuit but I presume this is in response to our letting him know today that we are going to sue him.  His allegations are absurd.”

An attorney for Podcast One tells us they’re suing Hernandez for stealing intellectual property — and they have no idea why he was canned from his most recent job.Norm Pattiz, the entrepreneur behind PodcastOne and Westwood One, had a bad habit of whipping out a loaded gun and knife during meetings with a producer … according to a lawsuit.

Raymond Hernandez says Pattiz brandished a handgun in their office on multiple occasions, and also bragged about his deep ties with law enforcement. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, he says the broadcasting mogul would sometimes place the gun on his desk with the barrel pointed at Hernandez.

According to the suit, the boss man flaunted the firepower in order to intimidate Hernandez — who says he was told to juice the numbers on podcast downloads in order to boost advertising revenue. Hernandez says he let it be known around the office he wasn’t comfortable fudging numbers, and was fired shortly thereafter.

Hernandez says the gun play was also motivated by revenge. Last year, comedian Heather McDonald aired a recording of Pattiz sexually harassing her while she was on the job — he made a comment about supporting her breasts. In the docs, Hernandez says Pattiz thinks he leaked the audio to Heather, and eventually pressured Hernandez’s new employer to 86 him.

Hernandez, with his attorney Rob Reichman, is suing Pattiz for assault, wrongful termination and whistleblower retaliation.

We’ve reached out to Pattiz … so far no word back.

Facebook Sued for Age Discrimination, Accused of Mocking 50-Year-Old


Facebook Sued

They Called Me the ‘Creepy’ Old Guy

… Says 50-Yr-Old

9/22/2017 4:58 PM PDT

Breaking News

Facebook created a workplace where employees openly mocked a guy for being as ancient as — wait for it — 50 years old … at least according to the ex-worker who’s suing. 

Gary Glouner says he worked under the Facebook umbrella for 2 years, and during that time was the butt of many ageist jokes. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the age cracks included:

– “Old people shouldn’t be working at Facebook; they just don’t relate”
– “Old people are just creepy”
– “Old people don’t belong at Facebook”

Glouner says Mark Zuckerberg himself made public comments in 2007 where he said, “Young people are just smarter.” He adds … the ageism was institutional because during an HR presentation they displayed a chart highlighting the low energy of employees in their 50s.

Worst of all, he says his co-workers in their 20s and 30s always got cake and group celebrations — while he got bupkis. Glouner says his boss told him they didn’t want to embarrass him by highlighting his advanced age. We’ve reached out to Facebook … no word back.

Damn. No cake?

Audrina Patridge Husband Corey Bohan Say Her Dad Was Physically Threatening


Audrina Patridge

Husband Claims Her Dad was Physically Threatening

9/22/2017 12:00 PM PDT

Audrina Patridge‘s estranged husband just responded to her allegations in court docs, denying that he installed 5 cameras in their home in a fit of rage and in fact he says her dad became ominous and physically threatening.

Corey Bohan says in new docs, there were 2 existing cameras in the house and she knew all about them. Bohan says Audrina and her dad barged in through the garage door while he was there and made it clear … they would not set a time for her to come get her belongings. He says they texted him only 15 minutes before showing up, and that wasn’t enough time to arrange for the pickup.

He’s also complaining the restraining order hearing was set on the very day he was supposed to have visitation with his daughter — whom he hadn’t seen in 2 weeks.

TMZ broke the story … Audrina filed for divorce Wednesday and got a restraining order against Corey, which she says he violated just 1 day after it was granted. She says he called her a “f***ing c**t” and planted the cameras.

In divorce docs, Audrina said the violence started in August when they argued over accusations he was cheating. She also said Corey had threatened suicide in July when she was out of town on a business trip. There were other incidents in September — he told her she’s “f**ked up” because of her childhood — which led to cops and child services getting involved.

Audrina said the breaking point came last weekend when Corey, an Australian BMX rider, followed her onstage at a beauty event and demanded to know where their daughter, Kirra, was and said he was going to take her.

Corey and Audrina got married in November 2016.
