Nelly told TMZ Thursday night he had no idea heroin and marijuana were on his tour bus, which was stopped by police in Texas earlier that day.

Of course he didn't.

"It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest this morning," he said

Police in Sierra Blanca, Texas say they found 36 baggies of heroin, more than 10 pounds of weed, and a loaded .45 caliber pistol. A passenger on the bus, Brian Keith Jones, was arrested after admitting the drugs and the weapon were his.

Nelly said "Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board. Law enforcement officials did not press charges against anyone other than that individual."

Police sources told TMZ field tests of the drugs in the baggies confirmed it was heroin. Sources close to Nelly said it was ecstasy.

BOOK CLAIMS ELIZABETH TAYLOR SLEPT WITH REAGAN AND J.F.K.: Elizabeth Taylor slept with Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy, according to an explosive tell-all book.

Authors Danforth Prince and Darwin Potter claim in their book, "Elizabeth Taylor: There is Nothing Like a Dame," that the actress had an affair with Ronald Reagan when she was a teenager and had a threesome with President John F. Kennedy and actor Robert Stack.

Whoa.

Taylor died in 2011. According to the Huffington Post, the authors say they spent years researching the screen legend's life, and allege then 36-year-old Reagan invited a teenage Taylor to dinner at his home, and she seduced him.

Apparently he couldn't just say no.

The London Daily Express reported that a close friend of Taylor's revealed what the actress told her of her encounter with Reagan.

"Reagan was treating me like a grown woman, and that thrilled me," Taylor allegedly said. "We sat on his sofa and I could tell he wanted to get it on but he seemed reluctant to make the first move. I became the aggressor.... After a heavy make-out session on the sofa, we went into the bedroom."

The authors also allege a nude swim in J.F.K.'s pool turned into a steamy threesome with the president and Stack, both of whom were married.

It's really too bad there wasn't the Internet back then.

The book is full of details about the sexual encounters Taylor allegedly had with stars such as Peter Lawford, Errol Flynn, Tony Curtis and Paul Newman.

The Huffington Post reported Friday that the book isn't a flattering portrayal of Taylor. It claims that when her romance with Frank Sinatra died, she tried trapping him by saying she was pregnant in an attempt to get him to marry her. It was previously reported in Kitty Kelley's 1987 tell-all, "His Way: The Unauthorized Biography of Frank Sinatra," that Sinatra scoffed at marrying her and arranged for an abortion instead.

The actress, who died at the age of 79, was married eight times (twice to actor Richard Burton), and will be portrayed by Lindsay Lohan in the upcoming Lifetime biopic "Liz & Dick."

LINDSAY LOHAN LIKES MITT ROMNEY: Somewhere, a giddy President Obama is on the phone, making travel arrangements to spend the next two months in the Bahamas. Because he knows he just won the election and won't be showing up for any more debates.

Yes, Lindsay Lohan has made her eagerly-anticipated presidential election endorsement. And Mitt Romney is sequestered in an unknown location, sobbing hysterically and wondering where he went wrong.

Lohan announced Thursday night that she's throwing her weighty support behind the Romney-Ryan ticket.

According to E! News, the actress was at something called the Mr. Pink's Ginseng Drink event at the Regent Beverly Wilshire, where she told reporters Romney's her man.

"I just think employment is really important right now," Lohan explained when asked if she was keeping up with the election. "So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now."

Oh ... employment is important. Well, there you have it.

Then she broke out the pie charts a Power Point presentation right there on the red carpet, offering sound and educated evidence as to why Romney is the man.

OCTOMOM DENIES ABUSE ALLEGATIONS: Nadya Suleman, also known as "Octomom," said sexual abuse allegations from two former nannies are bogus and that the nannies are obsessed with her children and wanted to take them.

I have a feeling this is going to get really weird in a second.

"All of this is blatant lies," Suleman told TMZ Thursday night, adding the nannies are trying to "sell lies" to the media because they're upset Suleman and her family moved far away from their former home.

The nannies accuse Suleman of allowing one of her children to sexually abuse another child inside the home.

According to CBS2 in Los Angeles, the nannies contacted told Child Protective Services they witnessed the abuse. "(One of the boys) would take (his sibling) away and take her to another area. And he would be touching her."

"(Suleman) never did (anything). 'It's OK, don't worry about it.' That was her attitude." the woman said.

According to the report, the nannies also say they saw Suleman tie her eight newborns to their bed with cheese cloth around their waists to keep them from getting out of their cribs and blocked the door to the kids' bedroom with a chair from the outside so she could nap peacefully.

Cheese cloth? It's now officially weird.

Suleman countered, telling TMZ she had a bad feeling about the nannies, one in particular who developed a troubling obsession with her kids.

So she kept the woman she had a bad feeling about around her kids. Good parents always ignore such feelings.

"(The nanny) wanted to do her best to keep my eight (for herself)," Suleman said. "(The nannies) are hating because they can't have what I have."

Of course they do. Who wouldn't want to be responsible for 14 screaming children?

Suleman said she hasn't been contacted by police, but has spoken with Child Protective Services. She said CPS "saw the kids were well taken care of."

Suleman denied the accusations concerning the chair blocking the door. She said the children did it as a joke. "The kids moved the chairs. They just like to do that."

Suleman says her kids are happy and healthy and have great lives. "I have nothing to hide."

FEUD BETWEEN DIVAS APPARENTLY OVER: Elton John's husband David Furnish said Thursday night that the couple's feud with Madonna is over.

Furnish said some nasty things about Madonna back in January, after she beat out John for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes, calling the singer desperate and narcissistic.

But on his way out of the Abbey in West Hollywood Thursday, Furnish told TMZ there's no more bad blood between the them, saying "I think she's a great artist. She's an inspiration to all of us."

When pressed about the sincerity of his comments, Furnish said, "Seriously ... I love her."

Of course he does.
