Scottie Pippen
's brawl with a fan outside Nobu in Malibu was totally unprovoked -- so says Scottie's alleged victim, who tells TMZ, he never ONCE said the n-word ... and simply asked for a photo.

The 48-year-old -- who didn't want to be named -- tells us, he first spotted Scottie inside the restaurant on Sunday while waiting for a table.

The fan, his girlfriend and Scottie eventually ended up sitting near each other ... so the fan says he asked to take a photo with the NBA legend for his 12-year-old son.

According to the guy, Scottie didn't want to get up from his table to pose with him, but allowed the fan to take a photo of him sitting down (below).

When the fan saw Scottie leaving, he says he approached the ex-Bulls star in the parking lot -- thinking it wasn't a big deal -- and again asked for a pic WITH Scottie, knowing it would mean a lot to his son.

He tells us Scottie turned and said, "I told you no motherf***er" ... and then spit at him and punched him, at which point the victim fell to the ground. He says the last thing he remembers is seeing Pippen's shoe coming at his face.

According to the victim, he woke up in the hospital Monday with a concussion, fractured ribs, busted lip and chin, a broken tailbone, and possible brain injuries. He's back at home now.

As for Pippen's allegation the man spewed the n-word and spit at him ... the fan says not true -- "It’s sad to see Scottie is trashing me. I never called him the N word, and I haven’t done anything to that guy ... What’s the big deal? Taking one picture with a fan."

The man says police have already interviewed him and his girlfriend, but right now he doesn't plan to sue. "I'm not thinking about anything at the moment but getting better."

Calls to Scottie's people weren't returned.

Well, the comment section seems to be about 50-50 on who's right and who's wrong in this situation. As if any of you really know what went on that night. Yesterday Pippen was in the right as TMZ sided with him, and today the beating victim has a good story in which TMZ now implants into their flocks brains. And now it has turned into a racial thing, of course, and the hatefilled comments will fill this reply section. I find it amazing how the people on this site will spew out such anger over something that has nothing to do with them. Damn, crazy humans.

If you don't want anyone to know who you are, why come out in the first place? At this point, you were considered an "Autograph Seeker", no name no picture.. Now you want to plaster your face and your lip on the interweb? This guy IS looking to sue and is looking for some attention! I think maybe you did get kicked in the head, cause this doesn't make any sense!

Pippen reputation has always been one of a lay back kid of guy. This guy chased after Pippen when he was leaving the restaurant after he sit a Pippen's table while Pippen was having dinner with his family.

I think this guy pushed Pippen to the edge by calling him the N-word and spitting on him.

People use common sense. He has been a celebrity for at least 2 decades, gets asked for autugraphs frequently and there were witnesses at the scene. Why the hell would you jump on the angry black man is beating the poor defenseless white man bandwagon. It is a crime to assault someone and this includes *******s who spit on someone who is carrying a baby. Since all blacks and Hispanics are criminals what would you do in the same cir***stances if your white baby is in your arms?! You don't own celebrities! ! They provide entertainment.

When a celeb tells you no pictures, it's best not to pester him, especially if he is Pippen's size.

Here we go again with he called me the n word. Why is it that ever time a white person gets beat up by a black person the black person says but they called me the n word. Not all white people say that word. So damn tired of this excuse being thrown out as if the word is vindication to beat someone up. Grow up and stop using that word as a reason to do what you want.

People Annoy Me    

Usually when someone says "He/She called me a N" it usually is a low excuse to use to get sympathy. I'm sticking with the fan's side for now, but someone is obviously lying here.

'Victim' looks like an obnoxious persian tool-bag. He's already retained some shady lawyers and is plotting a money grab. Go away, grifter.

Wow. This is really the site of idle speculation. Bring on the witnesses. Of all the comments, none from anyone at the restaurant at the time and place of the incident. It seems that without envy and schadenfreude TMZ wouldn't exist.

COME ONE PEOPLE!

HONESTLY, YOU'RE EITHER NAIVE OR WHITE TO BELIEVE THIS.

AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, AFTER ALL THE BEATDOWN, THE PERSON WON'T EVEN SUE SCOTTY.


THERE IS ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNO W ABOUT EVERY BLACK PERSON: NO MATTER AT WHAT LEVEL THEY ARE IN LIFE, JUST DON'T PRESS THE TRIGGER, DON'T SAY THE N-WORD!

SCOTTY WASN'T COOL TO BEAT THE **** OUT OF HIM, BUT WE HAVE BEEN ON THIS FOR SO LONG, AND SOME EVEN KILLF JUST FOR THIS, SO DON'T SAY IT, IT'S VERY CASE SENSITIVE!
