Floyd Mayweather

My Ex's Abortion Is Fair Game

We're Too Famous for Privacy

11/26/2014 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126_floyd_mayweather_Shantel-Jackson_tmzFloyd Mayweather is firing back at his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson -- claiming he did NOT violate her right to privacy by discussing her abortion in detail on social media ... because their relationship was for public consumption anyway. 

As we previously reported, Jackson sued Mayweather earlier this year for a bunch of different reasons -- including assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy and more. 

Now, Floyd is trying to get the several claims dismissed -- and in new legal docs, he focused on her claim that he violated her right to privacy. He starts off his argument in the most Mayweather way possible:

"At age 37 I am an undefeated boxer. I have been the world champion in five different weight divisions."

He goes on to explain that when he met Jackson, "she asked me to help her become famous" ... and stated that her only semblance of fame was appearing in 7 music videos.

Floyd says he used his celebrity to help build her up -- and says they became so famous, people were interested in every aspect of their relationship ... including the breakup.  

Which is why Floyd says he went to social media earlier this year and told the world he ended things with Shantel because she had an abortion behind his back.

"Both parties are public figures. Abortion is a public issue," Mayweather states in the docs. 

He adds, "A public figure involved with another public figure in a public relationship can expect publicity, not privacy, about why it ends."

Mayweather wants the suit thrown out asap. A judge has yet to rule.

Jason Derulo

Suck It Jordin ...

I'm The King Of My Own Castle Now

11/26/2014 10:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Derulo New HomeJordin Sparks may be a damsel in distress ... but now that she's trashed him, she won't be welcome at Jason Derulo's new castle.

Jason bragged about his new medieval digs -- insinuating he doesn't care that Jordin is now trashing him -- by tweeting that he's moved on to bigger and better things: "I bought myself a castle 2day!!  No big deal."

Jason isn't directly responding to Jordin's new single in which she essentially calls him an ingrate and an a-hole. But he started it by putting her on blast for allegedly pressuring him to tie the knot.

As for his $3 million acquisition deep in the San Fernando Valley ... it's 10,000 square feet, outfitted with turrets, a dungeon, a basketball/tennis court, and a lap pool -- standard issue for land barons.

It's like Henry VIII moved to Tarzana ... which sounds like a CW show.

Jordin Sparks

Tears Into Jason Derulo

You Ungrateful SOB

11/25/2014 2:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jordin Sparks Jason Derulo Diss SongJordin Sparks puts even Taylor Swift to shame by mercilessly going after ex-BF Jason Derulo, calling him out as a vengeful ingrate.

Sparks' SCUD missile takes the form of a mixtape, "#BYEFELICIA," featuring "How Bout Now (Remix)" ... it's a Drake song reworked to rip Derulo.

"Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Member when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don't remember half the shit that i did for you."

And it goes on ...

"Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can't believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I'm with you for your fame and your name. What?"


The couple split back in September after a 3-year romance. After the split Jason trashed Jordin, saying she was pressuring him to marry her.

We reached out to Derulo ... so far, no word back.

Ex-NBA Star Joe Smith

No Satisfaction!!

$$$ Still Missing After Reality Star Ex Duped Me

11/17/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1114-joe-smith-moniece-slaughter-tmz-01
Former NBA star Joe Smith claims his ex-girlfriend, "Love & Hip Hollywood" star Moniece Slaughter, bilked him out of a ton of money ... and he's pissed that cops have done nothing about it.

According to a report filed with the Manhattan Beach Police Department, Smith claims that between October 2011 and March 2012, nine checks were written from his checkbook to a Timothy Clayton Carr ... totaling $109,000.

Smith told police he did not write the checks and does not know a man by that name.

In June 2012, police were able to get a hold of Carr, who told them he was a friend of Slaughter and that he was cashing the checks for her as a favor because she didn't have a bank account. Carr told cops he was unaware the checks were stolen or that anything was wrong until Smith canceled the last check.

Carr also told police Slaughter had agreed to pay him back for the canceled check, but it when it came time to meet up ... she disappeared. 

But Slaughter told police an entirely different story. According to the report, Slaughter claims Smith knew all about the checks and signed them personally. She claims Smith only canceled the last check because the pair broke up. 

After talking to Slaughter, police went back to Smith and explained her story. His response ... "She's crazy."

Smith has told police he wants to press charges, but nearly 2.5 years later ... nothing has come of it. He tells TMZ Sports he's frustrated the case remains unresolved and feels police have been giving him the runaround.

Cops tell TMZ Sports the case remains open and active.

Johnny Weir

I Got the Dog and Faberge Egg

... My Ex Gets Squat

11/10/2014 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1108-johnny-weir-victor-voronov-tmz-01Johnny Weir's ex believes the judge in his divorce case screwed the pooch ... because Johnny has been awarded full custody of their tiny little dog.

And there's more in the bad news department for Victor Voronov ... he doesn't get to keep the $20,000 Faberge egg that was a big bone of contention in their nasty divorce.  

We found out Johnny and Victor quietly went to court late last week and the judge laid down the law over some precious items. The Japanese Chin, Tema, was the biggest source of heartache. Victor sobbed back in March, as he watched Weir scoop Tema up and remove her from their home.

The judge also gave Johnny's lawyer permission to sell their wedding rings and the pricey egg to cover legal fees.

Johnny threw a crying fit over the egg -- which led to a 6-hour standoff at their storage facility.

Victor also got shut down in his attempt to get more spousal support, so all he gets is a grand a month.

Why do we think this fight's not over?

A ponytailed Bruce stepped out for coffee Thursday afternoon in Calabasas ... and we couldn't help but notice he was wearing a wedding band.

His marriage to Kris is over and out -- they've already agreed on the money split. He has some sort of new relationship/friendship with Kris' best friend, and she's clearly moved on because she's full-on dating Corey Gamble.

Bruce is a complicated guy.

Michael Strahan

Ready to Dump Nicole Love Nest

But It Won't Go for Cheap

EXCLUSIVE

1104_michael_strahan_house_for_sale_launchMichael Strahan hates to see her go, but he loves the look of $23 million in the bank -- so he's finally ready to part with his most beloved and prized ... L.A. area mansion.

TMZ Sports has learned the NFL Hall of Famer is pocket listing his Brentwood pad ... which buyers have been drooling over ever since Michael and Nicole Murphy broke up in August. 

Our real estate sources tell us ... Michael is emotionally attached to the 15,600 sq. foot palace -- he just bought it in December for $16 million -- but recently decided he'll let it go IF, and only IF, he gets an offer of $23 million ... or more. 

The spread includes 9 bedrooms and 14 baths ... but NOT Nicole. We're told she moved out back in the summer.

Nicki Minaj

Bad Case of the Benz

Smashes Up BF's Mercedes

EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj Attacks Boyfriend Car
Now we know why Nicki Minaj and her longtime boyfriend broke up ... one of them was on the verge of going to jail after she smashed the windows of his Mercedes with a baseball bat.

Here's what we know. During the summer, Nicki and Safaree Samuels got into an argument. She started screaming, he got pissed, and she EXPLODED in anger, grabbing a bat and chasing him out of the house. She wisely chose property over person, and pulverized the 2012 Benz.

And for bad measure, she threw his clothes in the garbage -- just like in the movies.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops were called to the house, but no arrests were made. Safaree was escorted out of the house and left.

As for why Nicki didn't get in trouble ... it appears she owned the Mercedes, but allowed him to use it, and you can't get arrested for destroying your own property.

They broke up a short time later. Wise move.
