We’re wrapping up the week here at TMZ, but we’re just getting started on juicy topics to talk about on TV — which is exactly what we did on Friday.
On ‘TMZ Live,’ Harvey and Charles dove head-first into the Darius Rucker arrest that goes all the way back to last February, and which landed with him in a jail cell earlier this week.
It’s a bit of a convoluted mess, but long story short … the guy got stopped in 2023 over expired tags — which ended in cops finding what they say might’ve been drugs … and almost a year later, they said they were sure it was drugs, resulting in Hootie posing for a mug shot.
Over at ‘TMZ on TV,’ we got into Avril Lavigne’s new friend (and maybe love interest?) who went skating with her out in L.A. earlier this week … in what sure looked like a date.
Of course, we’re talking about Nate Smith … whom we ran into at the airport, and who cleared the air. Take a look … the guys seems to suggest that AL is … just a pal.
Finally, we get to ‘TMZ Sports’ … where Babcock talked to NFL HOF’er Andre Reed about the Buffalo Bills and Stefon Diggs … who AR says could take a pay cut to stick around.
