Floyd Mayweather Tokyo Fight Back On ... 'We're Gonna Make It Happen'

11/15/2018 9:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says the Tokyo fight that was on and then off ... is back on -- and he's telling TMZ Sports exactly how it's gonna go down.  

Remember, Floyd was supposed to fight 20-year-old kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa on New Year's Eve ... but recently backed out ... saying promoters misled him about the scale and nature of the bout.

We talked to Floyd Wednesday night as he left Peter Marco jewelry in Beverly Hills ... and he told us the fight is very much alive.

"We're gonna make it happen."

Question is ... is it boxing, kickboxing or MMA?

"Rules? It's gonna be a little boxing exhibition. No kicking," Floyd told us ... "I'm moving around with the guy for 9 minutes, and of course its gonna be the highest paid exhibition ever."

Bottom line ... the money's just too good to pass up, as long as the fight goes down on Floyd's terms.

"It's a no-brainer. Just because I'm retired from boxing," Mayweather says, "I still make appearances worldwide and make a ton of money."

Danielle Bregoli Attacks Iggy Azalea ... Haha, You're All Wet, Bitch!!!

11/15/2018 5:52 AM PST
Exclusive Video

Bhad Bhabie's got fresh beef on her hands after going off on Iggy Azalea at a Hollywood Party, savagely attacking her ... with a full drink! Yeah, she hasn't come that far from her Dr. Phil days.

We got video of Bhabie (nee Danielle Bregoli) going nuclear on Iggy Wednesday night inside Boulevard3 in Hollywood. You can tell she was ready to pounce because the second she saw Iggy, she unloaded a full cup of clear liquid.

It was immediate bedlam -- Iggy's crew started jawing back and Bhabie's security held her back. They couldn't stop her from running her mouth, though. It's great video ... when you remember this is a 15-year-old attacking a 28-year-old.

The beef apparently started because Iggy talked smack on social media, saying who would even go to one of Bhabie's shows. Of course, Danielle fired back, Iggy should so she could remember what a sold-out show looks like (quality burn, there).

Bhabie was still fired up when we, uh ... caught her outside, and she insisted "ain't nobody worried about that f**kin' hoe!!"

As for Iggy -- this is gonna sound weird -- but she was totally the adult. Seeming unfazed, she said she hopes it wasn't alcohol Bhabie threw because "she's a little kid." She also insinuated Bhabie's age is the only thing saving her from a can of whoopass. Hmmm ... who's your money on?

Sidenote: This all went down at Cardi B's Fashion Nova event. Something tells us, Cardi would give this beef her stamp of approval.

Dream Kardashian Teepee, Fairies & Bentley You Can't Top My 2nd Bday Bash!!!

11/15/2018 6:58 AM PST

Dream Kardashian clearly doesn't buy into the terrible twos theory ... not after having a magical birthday to celebrate.

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the brood threw an impressive birthday party for Rob and Blac Chyna's kid ... though we're guessing BC was nowhere in sight (more on that in a sec).

There was also a LOT to snack on. Seriously ... check out the spread. The fairy-themed party had it all -- 2 fairies, a teepee, tons of balloons ... and even a shiny Bentley.

As for Chyna ... she wasn't there, and that's not surprising. She and Rob do NOT get along, even though they've managed to co-parent. A year ago, they threw dueling birthday parties for Dream. They're also locked in a bitter fight over child support. For now, the judge has suspended Rob's obligation to pay Chyna $20k a month.  

Rob's asking for a substantial reduction, and it's not out of the question Chyna could end up paying Rob since she's making a lot of money and they're sharing 50/50 joint custody. 

Nelly Sued for Sexual Assault After U.K. Show

11/15/2018 8:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Nelly's facing new legal trouble -- a woman is suing him for an alleged sexual assault after one of his shows in England.

The woman, who's filed as a Jane Doe -- claims Nelly masturbated in front of her multiple times after the December 2017 Essex concert. We broke the story ... Nelly was under criminal investigation back in February after the woman came forward with the allegations.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, she says they met during a meet-and-greet and he whispered in her ear to stay behind. She did, but that's when she claims he dropped his pants and started masturbating while saying, "You want this d**k don't you."

Doe claims she rebuffed him several times but Nelly would not back off, and told her he wanted to ejaculate on her. She says she told him something to effect of ... "You may have more quid in your bank than I do. But this doesn't make you any more special. Pull your trousers back up and f*** off."

The woman claims Nelly got aggressive and clenched his fist -- and when she asked if he was going to hit her, he allegedly said ... "No I'm just frustrated. I'm not used to not getting my way, just do it." She claims he forced his penis into her mouth, and that's when she jumped back and was able to flee the room.

She's also suing Nelly's GF, Shantel Jackson, for calling her a liar on Twitter.

As we first reported ... Nelly and another woman, Monique Greene, reached a mutual settlement after he was accused of raping her on his tour bus in October 2017.

Lisa Vanderpump If I Were Leaving 'RHOBH' ... You'd Hear it From Me!

11/15/2018 7:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11/15 -- We got Lisa out later Wed, and she insisted that if there was any news about her role on the show, she wouldn't let the rumor mill churn, she would address it herself.

She also had a message for everyone clamoring for news about the show -- priorities, people!

Lisa Vanderpump has NOT decided to leave "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... contrary to new reports.

Sources close to Lisa tell TMZ ... the reality is, reality shows are not the center of her life the way they used to be, but that doesn't mean she's hanging up the towel. Sources very, very close to Lisa say she honestly has not made a decision about future seasons, although she has finished filming Season 8.

As for her decision not to go to France ... we're told her priority was her Vanderpump Foundation Gala, which she's throwing Thursday night. A portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

Lisa, we're told, finds it a little absurd that anyone is focusing on the next season of 'Real Housewives' when it seems half the state of California is on fire. As it was put to us, "She doesn't give a s**t about casting for Season 9."

As for why she's been a lady of few words on the current season ... she's emotionally upset over the death of her brother, who passed days before filming began for season 8.

From our point of view ... it feels like a toss-up as to whether Lisa returns, but it's clear based on our conversations ... she hasn't decided one way or the other.

Khloe & Tristan Still Together ... Doing Thanksgiving as a Family

11/15/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are NOT broken up or on the rocks, contrary to reports -- but they could very well be breaking up a turkey wishbone very soon ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... rumors that Khloe and TT have split or are no longer talking in the wake of his cheating scandal are simply false -- they're still together and going strong. 

We're told the reason Khloe hasn't been in Cleveland lately is that she's filming a new season of 'KUWTK.' Meanwhile, he's in the middle of his NBA season with the Cavs. Our sources say Khloe was supposed to fly out to Cleveland last week, but stayed in L.A. on account of the fires that were ravaging hers and surrounding communities. 

And besides, would a couple on the verge of a split be spending time together on Thanksgiving? Probably not ... which is exactly what we're told Khloe's doing for the holiday. Sources say Khloe's going to Cleveland next week to be with Tristan and baby True as a family.

As we reported ... Khloe was at Tristan's game in Cleveland a couple weeks ago cheering him on. Her visit must've left some magic behind, 'cause Tristan's been on a tear lately. He racked up 21 rebounds in the Cavs' win over Charlotte Tuesday night.

Cisco Adler Down with Carey Hart Malibu Looters will Be Shot

11/15/2018 6:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cisco Adler is down with Carey Hart's warning to looters ... you steal, you get shot.

We got the Grammy-nominated musician Wednesday night leaving Staples Center after the Lakers game, and the longtime Malibu resident told us it was a much-needed break from the heartache people in his town have been feeling since the fires ravaged the area.

Cisco was comfortable with the warning Carey Hart and Co. delivered ... that they are more than willing to take the law into their own hands if someone tries to take advantage of the evacuations by looting.

A warning is in order ... in California, you can only use deadly force if you are in imminent fear of great bodily harm and deadly force is the only way to eliminate that danger. 

Michael Avenatti Arrested for Felony Domestic Violence ... I'll Be 'Fully Exonerated'

11/15/2018 7:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11/15 -- Stormy Daniels has just released a statement on the incident, saying, "These are serious and obviously very troubling allegations, but right now that is all they are: allegations. We should all reserve judgement until the investigation -- an investigation Michael has said he welcomes -- is complete, and that's what I'm going to do."

She continues ... "But of course I do not condone violence against women and if these allegations prove true I will be seeking new representation."

5:50 PM PT -- Avenatti bailed out and held a brief news conference, saying, "I have never struck a woman. I will never strike a woman." He added he's looking forward to the investigation and is confident he'll be "fully exonerated."  

4:50 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the LAPD has already obtained an emergency protective order, prohibiting Avenatti from going near the alleged victim. We're told they will serve him with the legal docs before he's released from custody. We're told he will be released on $50,000 bail.

4:10 PM PT -- We were initially told by our sources the alleged victim was Avenatti's estranged wife. We now know it was not. The incident involved a different woman. Michael Avenatti, who became famous for representing Stormy Daniels in her battle with President Trump, has been arrested for felony domestic violence ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our law enforcement sources say Avenatti was arrested Wednesday after a woman filed a felony DV report. We're told her face was "swollen and bruised" with "red marks" on both cheeks. 

Our sources say the alleged incident occurred Tuesday night, but there was another confrontation Wednesday between the two at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A. 

We're told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, "I can't believe you did this to me.  I'm going to get a restraining order against you."

We're told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, "She hit me first." We're told he angrily added, "This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***."  We're told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.  

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

A law enforcement source says on Tuesday, Avenatti "kicked her out of the apartment" and that's when the alleged domestic violence occurred. We're told she went back to the apartment on Wednesday to retrieve her belongings and called police to stand by in case things got heated. 

We're told Avenatti is currently in custody.

EXCLUSIVE

J.R. Smith just copped a sweet deal in his cell phone throwing incident back in July ... TMZ Sports has learned, and if he stays outta trouble for 6 months ... he's totally in the clear.

ICYMI -- Swish allegedly took a fan's cell phone and threw it into a construction site ... after the guy tried to snap a pic of the Cleveland Cavs star outside of The Park, an NYC hotspot.

Smith -- who appeared before a judge in a Manhattan courtroom Thursday morning with attorney Alex Spiro -- had his case adjourned in contemplation of dismissal.

Plain talk -- as long as he buys the fan a new cell phone ($600) AND doesn't screw up ... the case will be dismissed.

Spiro told us ..."He was issued a ticket, paid for the cell phone upgrade, and the case is being dismissed and sealed - this is a non event."

Bella Hadid Donates $10k for Malibu Recovery

11/15/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

For Bella Hadid, the California wildfire's destructive path made things personal ... and now she's fighting to avert a looming threat triggered by the ravaging inferno -- mudslides.

The supermodel has donated $10k to the Malibu Disaster Prevention & Relief Fund. The GoFundMe page is spearheaded by the Point Dume Bomberos ... who need the money to pack sandbags, buy pool pumps, generators, respirators, cleanup materials and other tools.

Rain could arrive sometime next week and fire officials have said fast-moving mudslides -- possibly like the catastrophic one in Montecito earlier this year -- could be powerful enough to bring down trees and tons of other debris. Fact is ... torched terrain won't absorb the rain.

This would be devastating for Bella who, on top of losing her Montecito home in January from devastating floods, has seen the area where she went to high school decimated. The Woolsey fire's killed at least 2 people and burned nearly 100k acres and more than 400 structures.

Bella's not the only celeb pitching in to help Malibu get back on its feet. Patton Oswalt donated $5k to rebuild a horse ranch that burned downJon Favreau kicked in $1k to another Woolsey Fire relief fund and Sean Astin donated $1k to a similar cause

Disney Sued I Found Bed Bugs In Disneyland Hotel ... They Sucked My Blood!!!

11/15/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Disney took "A Bug's Life" from the big screen and into the bedroom ... according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman claiming the Disneyland Hotel is infested by bed bugs. 

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Ivy Lizette Ewell Eldridge says she developed a severe skin rash over her entire body after an April stay in the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, and the hotel failed to tell her about a bed bug infestation.

In the suit, she says bed bugs latched onto her body while she slept and "sucked her blood until they were gorged." She claims the rash was so bad, she needed medical treatment.

We've obtained photos of her alleged injuries and, yeah ... they're gross. 

Ivy means business -- she's hired Brian Virag from the firm, MyBedBugLawyer, Inc. to rep her in court. She's seeking money to cover her medical costs, pain, suffering and lost wages. 

Jack Black Dewey Reunites with Spazzy McGee ... From 'School of Rock'

11/15/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jack Black was in full rock god mode Tuesday night in Chicago during a Tenacious D set -- which served as the perfect setting for a "School of Rock" reunion with one his "students."

Professional drummer Kevin Clark -- who played Freddy, aka Spazzy McGee in 'SoR' -- tells TMZ ... he got in touch with Jack when he heard TD was playing a gig in town, and that Jack made sure he was given tickets and backstage access at the Riviera Theatre. 

Perhaps, unsurprisingly, the reunion made for some epic nostalgia ... almost like it was 2003 all over again. We're told Jack and Kevin hadn't seen each other in a while.

Fun fact: Kevin hasn't acted since starring in the film, and says he only got the role at the time 'cause he could actually play the drums. Freddy plays in his own band now -- Dreadwolf -- and gave Jack one their custom shirts, which he threw on immediately.

BTW ... the actress who played Katie -- the bassist in the film, Rebecca Brown, attended Jack's TD show Wednesday night. 

You know what that means ... stick-it-to-the-man-eosis is spreading!!!!
