Wahlberg to Mayweather

You're a Great Boxer, But that Jewelry ... Fabulous!

5/9/2015 8:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0509-mayweather-mark-splash-01Mark Wahlberg was blown away at the Clippers game last night, but it had nothing to do with the Clippers rout over the Rockets ... he was mesmerized by Floyd Mayweather's bling.

Mark and Floyd were sitting courtside, not beside each other, when Mark walked over to Floyd to admire his ridiculously expensive bracelet.

Meanwhile, Khloe and Kendall had laser focus on the game ... at least for a second or two. 

Tons of stars showed, including Billy Chrystal, Macy Gray, Adam Devine and Bob Odenkirk.

Floyd Mayweather's father is FIRING MORE SHOTS at Manny Pacquiao's camp ... calling him a loser with a pathetic trainer ... and he's doing it all through the majesty of poetry. 

Turns out, Floyd Sr. has been dabbling in the rhyming arts for a while -- and has even been putting together a book of his best work. 

And after Saturday's mega-fight, Papa Mayweather felt the inspiration to tap into his inner Robert Frost ... to deliver the most poetic smacktalk we've ever seen. Enjoy ... 

The fight has taken place..
Manny's title? Lost without a trace.

As Me and Floyd 
Entered cheerful embrace...

I glanced to see the look of disgrace on Freddie's Face.
I have changed My pace

I can now look them in the face
And say:

I must confess You tried Your best.....
And As We saw there was no contest.

FLOYD is simply the best!

Now just like I said
Freddie the Roach is Dead!

Manny Pacquiao

1st Post-Surgery Selfie

5/7/2015 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0507-manny-pacquiao-instagramManny Pacquiao says his shoulder surgery was a rousing success -- and just posted his first post-op selfie to prove it. 

Pacman went under the knife in L.A. Wednesday night to repair a torn rotator cuff  in his right shoulder -- an injury that he didn't properly disclose to officials before the big Mayweather fight. 

Of course, Manny thanked God for the procedure ... and his wife ... and his world famous doctor ... saying, "Thank you to my Dr. Neal Ellatrache and his group for taking care of me. God is great!"

One thing we noticed in the pic ... not a single mark on his face.

Manny Pacquiao is NOT on the outs with Jesus Christ ... so says mega-pastor Rick Warren

The author of "The Purpose Driven Life" --  one of the bestselling books of ALL TIME -- was in D.C. Wednesday when we asked how the Christian community was handling Manny's loss.  

"I'm sad for Manny," Rick said ... "But I know that he's gonna be much stronger than one single fight."

Warren continued, "He's a real man of god. He cares about the poor kids in Manilla and teaches bible study to them. He's a great man."

QUIT BITCHIN ABOUT THE FIGHT

... It Wasn't That Bad!

EXCLUSIVE

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao wasn't a rip-off ... it wasn't a let down ... it was a PRETTY GOOD FIGHT ... so says Dave Chappelle

Dave -- who occasionally trains at Manny's Wild Card Boxing Club gym -- was out in L.A. Tuesday and told us something that virtually NO ONE has said about the fight ... "I enjoyed it."

So, why did the fight get so much hate from critics?! 

Dave says he thinks it's because a lot of people who don't usually watch boxing tuned in ... and "they don't understand that it was a pretty good fight."

"Those guys are excellent."

So, what are Dave's thoughts on a rematch? Check out the clip.

Floyd Mayweather

Baby Mama Sues for $20 Mil

... He's a Despicable Liar

EXCLUSIVE

0505-floyd-josie-tmz-instagram-02

Floyd Mayweather could lose tens of millions of dollars from his big payday if his baby mama gets her way ... because she's just filed a lawsuit claiming he ruined her with lies to save his own ass.

Josie Harris, who has 3 kids with Floyd, claims he lied through his teeth in an interview with Katie Couric just 2 weeks before the big fight ... when he claimed Josie was in a drug-fueled rage and he had to "restrain" her during their infamous 2010 domestic violence incident.

Point of fact ... Floyd was convicted of domestic violence and spent two months in jail.

Josie recounts her terror in the lawsuit, explaining how she and Floyd had broken up ... but he flew into a jealous rage that night, broke into her home and viciously attacked her while she was sleeping on her couch ... and her kids saw part of the beating.

Harris says she is now labeled a drug addict thanks to Mayweather's lies -- and was embarrassed and humiliated on a global scale.  

Her lawyer, Dan Friedlander, writes in the lawsuit -- Floyd's lies to Couric "were knowingly fabricated in order to hype Mayweather's upcoming fight with Pacquiao, to avoid bad press by deflecting responsibility for beating the mother of his children."

Harris wants in excess of $20 million. 

Jamie Foxx

Admits Nat'l Anthem 'Was a Little Off'

5/5/2015 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Jamie Foxx says his blackness compelled him to do a big over-the top-rendition of the national anthem at the Mayweather fight ... and says technical problems are the only thing to blame for the sharp criticism. 

Foxx just appeared on "Ellen" -- and explained that his ear pieces failed while he was in the ring ... causing him to be out of sync with the orchestra that was playing beside him. 

Despite the mishap, Foxx says his performance "killed" in the arena (in a good way) ... a statement that seems to be refuted by video of Jake Gyllenhaal ... who couldn't have looked less impressed. 

Still, good to have confidence ... 

Jamie Foxx's Nat'l Anthem

Blame It On the A A A Alcohol

... Says Marlon Wayans

5/4/2015 4:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Look, Jamie Foxx's version of the National Anthem was not great ... but it wasn't Roseanne Barr either ... so says Marlon Wayans ... who says he has an idea why Jamie may have shot a brick at the Mayweather fight. 

Long story short ... Marlon suspects the booze is to blame -- since Jamie was partying with some big dawgs like Puffy and Floyd ... and ultimately gave in the power of the blue dot. 

For the record, Wayans says Foxx is a talented genius who's got serious pipes -- he just had an off night. 

But he does issue Foxx a challenge ... a National Anthem sing-off. Check out the clip ... he's not bad.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's footage of boxing superstar Adrien Broner GOING ABSOLUTELY BERSERK after winning at the baccarat table in Vegas Sunday night ... yelling, screaming and AIR HUMPING the table. 

It's unclear how much cash Broner had on the table in the high roller's room at the MGM Grand -- but it must have been A LOT ... because any normie woulda been kicked out of the place in a heartbeat. 

The video is pretty hilarious ... Broner starts yelling about how he "f**ked this town up" with "no condoms" ... while thrusting his junk into the table. 

Congrats. 

BTW -- Broner's weekend was definitely eventful ... here's video of AB pounding a whole lotta tequila at a post-fight party.

The good news -- like a true pro, the 62-year-old popped RIGHT BACK UP and continued to dance ... even busting out the signature James Brown "Camel Walk" dance move.

Fight Was Fixed

EXCLUSIVE

The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was unanimous in everyone's eyes, but Manny's aunt and cousins are steadfast ... the fight was fixed.

Aunt Lilia and crew were leaving the Mandalay Bay on Sunday when our photog asked whether Manny was cheated, remember the boxer felt he had won the fight. His family went 5 steps further and claimed the whole thing was rigged and people got paid off. 

They weren't done... they also trash talked Floyd.

TMZ Sports got Aunt Lilia back in March when she belted out the signature tune from 'Frozen." She might want to take some advice ... let it go.

Jay Z

Can I Go Home Yet?

5/3/2015 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nobody was feeling Jay Z's after party in Las Vegas the way he was -- and that's a good thing ... 'cause from the looks of It Jay just wanted to be somewhere else.

Jay Z hosted, undoubtedly, the most exclusive Mayweather-Pacquiao bash at Marquee Nightclub Saturday night ... VIP tables went for $50k.

He and Beyoncé held court at their own table right on the dance floor -- but while the DJ was trying to get the crowd going, Jigga seemed to be dreaming ... of laying his head on his pillow.

Of course, his pillow was probably on a G6 ... WITH Bey ... so, can't blame the guy.
