Tiffany Haddish Mixed Signals Katt Beef Squashed, But What About Kevin?

9/22/2018 6:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tiffany Haddish may have nodded her head in agreement Friday as Kevin Hart railed on Katt Williams, but she says that doesn't mean she's co-signing on Kevin's message.

We got Tiffany Friday as she arrived at LAX, and posed the old adage, "Living well is the best revenge."  The point -- rather than firing back at Katt for his pretty disgraceful attack, just live your life to the fullest.

Tiffany restates her party line -- that there's no beef.

As you probably know, Tiffany sat next to Kevin Hart on The Breakfast Club and seemed to nod in agreement as Kevin tore Katt apart, saying it was rank jealously that triggered Katt's hateful comments.  

It's a smart play ... she stays above the fray as Kevin says what pretty much everyone is thinking. 

Bill Cosby Lock Him Up Monday After Sentencing ... Prosecutors Say

9/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Cosby better enjoy what little freedom he's got left, 'cause prosecutors in his sexual assault case want him locked behind bars Monday morning.

Authorities connected to the case tell TMZ ... prosecutors will push for the disgraced comedian/felon to be immediately hauled off to prison once the judge sentences him Monday AM.

Remember, prosecutors wanted Cosby behind bars after the guilty verdict back in April. The judge saw it differently and released him on $1 million bail, ordering him to remain at his home until sentencing.

Cosby's legal team will ask the judge to let the 81-year-old remain free on bail while they appeal the conviction, which could take years.

As we reported ... Cosby faces a maximum of 30 years in prison for aggravated indecent assault on Andrea Constand.

Cosby's life is now in the judge's hands ... literally.

Khabib Nurmagomedov Hates Conor's Filthy Mouth 'Think About the Kids!'

9/22/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor needs to cut out the bad language ... because KIDS ARE WATCHING -- so says Khabib Nurmagomedov

The UFC star tells TMZ Sports he got fed up with all the curse words Conor was dropping at their nasty press conference on Thursday ... and says they need to be better role models! 

"This is what I don't like when too much people cursing," Khabib said ... "Too many young guys like follow us ... I don't want to be a bad example for young generation people."

Conor dropped more bad words than a "Def Comedy Jam" act -- calling Khabib every dirty word in the book ... from "little rat" to "fanboy bitch" and "backwards c*nt."

Khabib says he refuses to engage in expletive warfare -- "I wanna be good [role] model."

As for whether Conor got under his skin at the presser, Khabib scoffed ... saying he's confident he'll "smash" McGregor when they face off at UFC 229 on Oct. 6. 

LET'S GOOOO!!!

Katt Williams Refusing to Cooperate in Gun Investigation

9/22/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katt Williams has gone radio silent with cops over his confrontation with an armed man ... so the chances any charges will be filed are slim to none ... TMZ has learned.

Cops tell us the investigation's still open, and police have reviewed surveillance footage as well as the video we obtained showing radio DJ Wanda Smith's husband, LaMorris Sellers, coming at him with a gun in hand outside the Atlanta Comedy Theater.

We're told investigators have reached out to Williams for more info, but he's not getting back to them. They even went to his house to talk ... but no luck.

On top of that ... we're told footage of the incident outside the club and neighboring grocery store doesn't show Sellers pointing a gun at Williams -- like Katt originally claimed.

Short story ... even if the comedian came forward to press charges ... we're told there's probably not enough evidence to move forward and charge Sellers. But, it's pretty evident Katt's not cooperating ... so the case won't go anywhere.

As we reported ... Sellers admitted he had a gun on him but denied ever pulling it on Katt, instead claiming it fell out of his waistband while he was chasing him.

Both Wanda and her hubby say Williams is the one who instigated the confrontation in the first place.

'Melrose Place' Star Jamie Luner No Charges In Sexual Assault Case

9/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Melrose Place" star Jamie Luner will not face charges for the alleged sexual assault she was accused of committing on a then-16-year-old boy ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County District Attorney's Office declined to file charges against Luner after Anthony Oliver filed a police report earlier this year claiming she sexually assaulted him at a house party nearly 20 years ago.

Prosecutors cited a few reasons for refusing to move forward with the case, including ... Oliver's late reporting (more than 19 years), Oliver's credibility problems, lack of corroborating evidence and the bare facts as presented. 

The credibility issue has to do with the story TMZ broke ... that Oliver had already been flagged by the court system for filing a crap ton of lawsuits, at least 22 over the past several years. He insists the suits were actually filed by his brother, and not himself. 

As we first reported, Oliver's $250 million lawsuit against Jamie was dismissed last month. In other words ... clean sweep for Jamie.

Conor McGregor Cried After 1st Pro MMA Loss Opponent Explains Why ...

9/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor wasn't always a monster in the cage -- he tapped out in his 3rd-ever MMA fight and wept in the cage ... but his opponent says the dude is FAR from a cry baby. 

We spoke with Artemij Sitenkov -- the very first man to make Conor tap back in 2008 after putting the Irishman in a leg lock during a Cage of Truth fighting event in Dublin. 

"He was 19 years old ... and it was his first defeat, so yeah, he was emotional."

You can see in footage from the event, Conor was shocked after the match -- sitting on the cage floor in disbelief. 

But, Artemij says the tears don't make him any less of a man -- explaining, "When I was a kid and I lost my first fight, I was also crying. It's natural."

Conor's a different fighter now, according to Artemij -- "I didn't beat superstar McGregor. I beat teenager McGregor."

Artemij is still very involved in MMA -- he currently coaches young fighters ... and gave us a prediction on the upcoming Conor vs. Khabib fight

Spoiler alert ... might wanna get the tissues ready.

Asia Argento Watch Your Mouth, Jimmy ... Or Else

9/21/2018 2:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Asia Argento's attorney fired off a stern warning to Jimmy Bennett -- be very careful with what you say about me ... or you're gonna regret it.

Asia's attorney, Mark Heller, fired off a letter to Jimmy's lawyer Thursday -- obtained by TMZ -- regarding the reported upcoming interview he's got scheduled on an Italian television station to address their sexual encounter on May 9, 2013.

According to the letter ... Bennett's words will be carefully monitored for any "slanderous, defamatory or untruthful statements" concerning Argento, and if they believe there are any -- they'll be taking legal action.

Jimmy's interview is scheduled for sometime this weekend. As you know, Asia is originally from Italy and has a home there.

As we've reported ... both Argento and Bennett have made sexual assault allegations against each other. The two had sex in a Marina del Rey, CA hotel room when he was just 17. She says he was a horny kid who pounced on her and took away her free will. He says this was planned seduction with a minor.

The photo of Argento and Bennett in bed after they had sex, along with the text messages, seem to support Bennett's version.

Argento trashed Bennett, calling him a failed actor and drug abuser. 

TMZ broke the story ... Bennett has decided to pursue the matter with the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., which has not opened a criminal investigation. 

'AGT' Finalist Arrested for Domestic Violence ... Video in Cuffs

9/21/2018 2:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:35 PM PT -- We've obtained video of Ketterer in custody outside of the hotel he was arrested at talking with an officer. 

Michael Ketterer -- who finished in 5th place on this season's "America's Got Talent" -- has been arrested for felony domestic violence.

Ketterer was taken into custody Thursday afternoon by the LAPD in Hollywood. Law enforcement sources tell us ... he got into a fight with his wife, and when cops showed up they noticed she had a visible red mark.

We're told he was cuffed and booked for a felony because of the injury. Ketterer was released after posting $50k bail.

Michael tells us ... the arrest was a big "misunderstanding." He admits he and his wife got into an argument in their hotel room and cops were called, but she told them she didn't want to press charges. Ketterer says they arrested him anyway, telling him the law's the law.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the case will be downgraded to a misdemeanor because the injury was so minor. We're told the case will be referred to the L.A. City Attorney. 

The 5th place finisher on season 13 of 'AGT' made headlines when Simon Cowell hit the Golden Buzzer during his audition, which advanced him right to the live shows. He later moved Cowell to tears during his quarterfinals performance ... after revealing his wife and daughter almost died during childbirth.

Tyron Woodley I'm Next In Line for Conor ... If He Beats Khabib

9/21/2018 2:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor vs. Tyron Woodley??

Tyron thinks it's just a matter of time ... and the time is right after Conor beats Khabib at UFC 229. 

"If Conor wins, the only fight that makes sense for him is to fight me," Tyron said on 'The Hollywood Beatdown' ... "[he'll] try to get a 3rd belt."

Of course, Conor has already held the UFC featherweight and UFC lightweight titles ... but Tyron Woodley is currently the champ in the welterweight division. 

So, if McGregor wants to make history as the Champ Champ Champ ... he's gotta go through Tyron. 

It's not a crazy idea ... Conor fought at welterweight in BOTH scraps with Nate Diaz

Tyron also says he and Conor have some unfinished beef stemming from a backstage altercation at UFC 205 back in 2016. 

There's A LOT more this week ... Tyron tells us about his conversations with Jon Jones and why he does NOT think he'd be able to win a fight against the UFC legend. 

Plus, Tyron demonstrates how to apply the Darce chokehold ... on Evan!
