EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar
TMZ just got the two police reports. As for Kevin's arrest ... the report says he told cops his son came home wasted and belligerent toward him and Kevin's wife, then spit in his face and elbow-checked him. Kevin told cops he pinned Tristen to the ground and that's when Tristen scratched his face.

But Tristen said Kevin was berating him over his relationship with his girlfriend. He says Kevin then choke-slammed him to the ground and, just like Kevin's signature move, Tristen says he hit is head so hard on the ground he blacked out.  

Cops arrested Kevin because they felt he was the "primary aggressor."

As for Tristen's arrest two hours later ... Tristen's uncle told cops the young man -- who is 6'5" and 200 lbs -- was drunk and  had "slung his mom around the kitchen" and tried attacking him as well.
update-grey-gray-barWrestling superstar Kevin Nash was arrested early Christmas Eve morning -- after getting into a bloody fight with his teenage son Tristen ... TMZ has learned.

The 55-year-old legend -- who is currently under contract with the WWE -- was taken into custody in Volusia County, Florida  after cops received a call about a domestic incident just after midnight. 

When cops arrived to the scene ... they noticed blood on Kevin's face and arrested Nash.

Two hours later, cops received another 911 call from a person claiming 18-year-old Tristen attacked his mother. He was also arrested for battery. 

Cops tell TMZ alcohol may have been a factor. 

1224-SUB-tristen-nash-mug-shot-01

Both men were hauled to a nearby jail where they were booked and are currently being held without bond. 

FYI -- Nash (6'10" and 277 pounds) is one of of the biggest stars in wrestling ... he's won titles in the WWE, WCW and TNA ... by using his signature move, the jackknife powerbomb. 



Nash has also had a decent film career. He appeared in "Magic Mike" and will be in the sequel as well. He's also appeared in "John Wick," "Rock of Ages," "The Longest Yard" ... and as Super Shredder in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Tristen is an aspiring singer in a band. 

Just four years ago, Kevin fiercely defended Tristen when Internet trolls blasted the music he posted in YouTube. Kevin wrote, "or those that are just haters because he is my kid, f**k you and I hope you wake up with a brain tumor tomorrow."

Rush Limbaugh

Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ...

Hue Is Wrong!

12/24/2014 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1224-rush-limbaugh-idris-elba-01
James Bond
was white, is white and should always be white ... at least according to Rush Limbaugh

On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh was reacting to a story that came from the leaked Sony emails ... saying Idris Elba, star of "Luther" and "The Wire," should take over the iconic part from Daniel Craig.

But Limbaugh feels that Elba (who he describes as "African-English," since Elba is a Brit) is not right for the role because Bond was created as a white guy and should stay that way.

Limbaugh said, "Now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is, and I know it's racist to probably even point this out."



Limbaugh tried turing the tables, asking people what they would think if Barack Obama was played by George Clooney and Kate Hudson were to play Michelle.

Rush has a bunch of other examples you just have to hear.

Mama June & Sugar Bear

Reunited for Massive

Soda Run at Walmart

12/24/2014 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1224-honey-boo-boo-walmart-TMZ-02Mama June and Sugar Bear have discovered the key to their reconciliation -- a crazy amount of soda.

The estranged couple hit up their local Walmart on Tuesday, where they filled up an entire shopping cart with Mountain Dew and Pepsi. Honey Boo Boo's love of Mountain Dew is rather legendary.

MJ and SB have been on the rocks for some time, but we're told they are still living together and are working on their relationship. 

And if they can't fix it, well ... at least they have all that soda.

Selena Gomez
brought home a new friend to meet the parents in Texas ... one Cara Delevingne!

Selena and Cara became fast friends this summer. We first saw them on a yacht in St. Tropez where they celebrated Selena's birthday and showered down together.

Fast forward to this week ... Selena went to her parents home outside Dallas for XMAS, and brought along Cara.

Selena and Cara hit up North Park Mall in Dallas, where they paraded around Victoria's Secret ... where they shopped for bras. They then made a beeline for Nordstrom, where they held hands and Cara slapped Selena's ass.

Justin who?

Melissa Rivers

XMAS Wish

I Want My Son to Laugh Again

12/24/2014 8:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

122414_melissa_rivers_launchThis will make you cry.

Melissa Rivers had a very simple Christmas wish, which encapsulates the sadness and loss she experienced this year over what seems like the preventable death of her mom, Joan Rivers.

Melissa was leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood when a photog asked the simple question ... she wants 13-year-old Cooper to laugh again.

1224-cooper-rivers-joans-funeral-SUB-GETTY-01It was clear from the funeral ... Cooper is taking his grandma's death very hard.

It's one of those simple things people say that tells the whole story.

Robin Thicke

I Buy the Booze

'Cause My GF's Too Young

12/24/2014 9:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122414_robin_thicke_launchRobin Thicke learned one of the drawbacks to dating a 19-year-old model ... you can't send her out for booze. 

The crooner and his smoking hot GF, April Love Geary, hit up Gil Turner's on the Sunset Strip Tuesday night ... one of the most famous liquor stores in town. 

Lots of stars buy the hard stuff at Gil Turner's, but many wait in the car while their less famous partners go inside. That option is not currently available to Robin.

Small price to pay ...

Rosie

Rips Collins, Couric

She Should Have Skewered Him

12/24/2014 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1224-stephen-collins-rosie-odonnell-katie-couric-tmz-01
Rosie O'Donnell
thinks Katie Couric failed in her interview with Stephen Collins, attacking the "7th Heaven" star for ruining the lives of the children he molested and then not really taking responsibility.

Rosie blogged about the interview, saying, "I was sure [Katie] was gonna do 2 him what she did 2 Sarah Palin ... hit him with his truth right between the eyes ... expose him for who he was ...'what newspapers do u read Sarah?  She saved us all then ... this time she didn't."

But then Rosie unleashed on Collins, saying, "He took the hand of 10 year old girl and used it to jerk himself off."  BTW, Collins only fessed up to taking the girls hand and placing it on his penis, but we know the woman claims he ejaculated.

Rosie goes on ... "ummmm -- after u came on the kids hand -- u mean?  stephen ... right?  u are not equals.  she was an innocent child ... a baby girl ... u have a daughter for gods sake ... were u able to resist the urge to touch her?  how noble ... congrats."

And she doesn't let up, saying, "in case u wonder what ur man sized penis -- ur abuse of power ur lack of impulse control did to that kid ... i will tell u a bit about me ... sex is not fun ... not now ... not ever ... it is married to a lingering terror ... joy evaporated."

Rosie recounts the impact sexual abuse caused her, "My body became my enemy ... I would not love it ... take care of it ... treat it well ... it betrayed me."

And then she takes a shot at Cosby, saying, "ur casual lack of accountability for her and for me has wondered us once again ... u -- Stephen Collins ... u u r an archetype ... as is Bill Cosby ... pedophile/rapist ... how dare i ... how dare i not."

Powerful stuff.

Chris Brown & Karrueche

They Just Can't Quit Each Other

12/24/2014 7:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

122414_chris_brown_karrueche_launch_v2Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran loved, hated, loved, hated ... and apparently the pendulum has
swung again.

We got video of the feuding exes leaving Playhouse early Wednesday morning. The two of them walk out of the club together, but appear to leave separately.

Karrueche was hosting a holiday party and toy drive at the club and there were flyers with her mug promoting the vent, so it's not like Chris didn't know she was there.

It actually seemed like this was a split for good, after CB went on stage and screamed "F*** Karrueche!"

Will this be the final chapter?  Not a chance.

'The Interview'

Schizo Sony Reverses Ground Again ...

Will Release the Movie Online

12/24/2014 9:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1224-seth-rogen-james-franco-interview-youtube-SONY-01update_graphic_red_bar 9:27 AM PT -- It's a done deal ... "The Interview" will be available online TODAY (Christmas Eve) via YouTube, Google Play, the Microsoft Xbox video game console and a special Web site called SeeTheInterview.com.

It will cost $5.99 to rent and $14.99 to buy and should be available at 1:00 PM ET.
update_grey_gray_barThe schizophrenic execs at Sony have come up with yet another change of course on "The Interview" ... this time nearing a deal to release it on YouTube. 

The plan, according to CNN, is to have the film available for rental on YouTube the same day it goes into theaters ... Christmas Day. It's not a 100% done deal and Sony already had a deal with iTunes fall apart.

It's latest about face for Sony ... the studio has reversed course multiple times over "The Interview" ... even more than Karrueche changes her mind about Chris Brown

Our inside sources at Sony say it's bedlam over there and there is no singular voice making the decisions ... which explains the Sybil act.

In addition to the theater flip-flop -- which intiially drew harsh criticism from Prez Obama -- Sony also pulled the flick off social mediaper the hacker's demands.

The one consistent thing at the studio ... the employees have really gotten screwed.

James Caan

Sony Pulled My Movie Too

... But I Don't Care!

12/24/2014 12:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122414_james_caan_launchJames Caan has a dog in the Sony hacking scandal fight, but you don't see him complaining ... because he's already been paid!

Lost in all the commotion about "The Interview" is a movie called "The Throwaways" ... which is actually about cyber hacking. Caan is one of the film's stars and it was supposed to premiere this month on Crackle (which is owned by Sony) ... but the company pushed it back because of the scandal.

But when our photog asked him about the film Tuesday night outside of Madeo, Caan said once he cashes the check ... it's out of sight, out of mind. 

When you've been around as long as he has, that's probably the best approach.
