Diddy

Told UCLA Coach ...

'I'm Gonna F**k You Up'

6/23/2015 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-diddy-tmz-01Diddy's alleged terrorist threat involved a bomb ... an f-bomb ... with sources telling TMZ Sports the rap mogul threatened to "f**k up" the UCLA strength coach during their office fight.  

Law enforcement sources tell us ... after Diddy swung a kettlebell at strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, he allegedly screamed out that he was "going to f**k him up." 

Prosecutors believe the comments amounted to a "terrorist threat" -- so that's why he was hit with the charge in addition to 3 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.  

As far as the case goes, one insider tells us important UCLA officials met this morning and we're told "charges will most likely be dropped but [Diddy] won't be allowed on the field anymore."

update_graphic_red_bar8:15 AM PT -- More info on what led up to the confrontation ... sources tell us the drama began earlier in the day on Monday when Sal booted Justin from a conditioning session for "lack of effort." 

When Diddy -- who was a once-a-week regular at UCLA practices -- heard about the situation, he was PISSED and stormed down to Alosi's office with Justin. 

When they arrived, Alosi was on the phone and told Diddy and Justin to hold on -- which only made them more upset. Alosi told Justin he would speak with him ... but instructed him to get his father OUT of the office.  

This only pissed Diddy off even more, according to BruinReportOnline.

Alosi reportedly had his hands up in a non-threatening way ... but Diddy "walked into Alosi's hand" ... and then warned Alosi not to put his hands on him.  

That's when Diddy exploded and attacked Alosi -- interns rushed in to break it up. Diddy was pulled out of the office and into the connecting gym, where he picked up the kettlebell and swung. 

Alosi reportedly suffered cuts on his face and a torn shirt.

Things just went from bad to worse for Diddy ... like "terrorist" worse ... 'cause the rap mogul is now being accused of making TERRORIST THREATS during the fight at UCLA. 

We broke the story ... Diddy was arrested Monday after allegedly attacking UCLA football strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi at the university athletic complex. 

Diddy was initially held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon because witnesses say he swung a kettlebell at Alosi -- but later that night, officials tacked on more charges:  

-- 3 counts of assault w/ deadly weapon
-- 1 count of making terrorist threats
-- 1 count of battery

It appears Diddy was allegedly screaming threats at Alosi -- and 5 or 6 people rushed in to break up the fight. 

Diddy was eventually released on bail after posting $50k bond -- but this case is far from over.

An ex-NFL cheerleader has just pled guilty to raping a 15-year-old boy she spotted on Instagram ... and now could face up to 15 years in prison.  

As we previously reported, 48-year-old  Molly Shattuck -- who cheered for the Baltimore Ravens in '05 -- was indicted back in November for 2 counts of 3rd degree rape for incidents that took place in September '14. 

Officials say Shattuck began seducing the boy back in May after she saw his picture on Instagram -- and first got physical with him in the back seat of her car in a middle school parking lot ... with kissing and touching.

But investigators say things escalated during Labor Day weekend ... when Molly seduced the boy at a rented beach house she was staying at with her own kids -- performing oral sex on him at least 2 times. 

Now, we've learned Shattuck struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which she agreed to plead guilty to one count of rape in the 4th degree ... and could face up to 15 years in prison when sentenced in August.

Allegedly Tried to Join ISIS

breaking news

0615-anthony-small-GETTY-01Former British boxing champ Anthony Small -- who was 23-2 as a pro -- is on trial in England for allegedly trying to sneak off to Syria to join ISIS ... this according to the BBC

The 33-year-old boxer was arrested in England along with two other men after authorities say they were trying to forge documents to illegally enter Syria. 

Small and the two men have all been charged with engaging in conduct in preparation of terrorist acts -- though Small DENIES the allegation. 

Small most famously fought in "The Contender Challenge: U.K. vs. USA" in 2007 -- when fighters from the U.S. reality show "The Contender" flew to England to fight up-and-coming boxers, including Small. 

Small defeated Walter Wright, who competed in Season 2 of the boxing reality show. 

Small converted to Islam at the age of 24 -- and in 2012, he made a YouTube video in which he said he quit boxing because the sport took place in venues that Muslims are forbidden to enter because of gambling, alcohol and half-naked ring girls.

Rick Ross had a close call in jail Wednesday ... in mortal danger of gaining back some of the pounds he lost.

As TMZ reported, Ross was busted for pot possession near Atlanta and was hauled off to jail. As the hours ticked away, Ross got hungry. The challenge: eating something that did not compromise his recent 100 pound weight loss.

The 2 slices of turkey made sense. A slice of cheese never killed anyone. The juice pack is loaded with sugar, but it's small. Ditto the "Oreo-like cookie."

But then comes the starch ... a staple in the pokey. Rick was tempted not once, not twice, but to 4 slices of bread.

Rick's now a free man and back to his diet which is pear heavy. Pears ... they're better to eat than emulate.
