Rae Carruth Released from Prison ... 19 Years After Ordering Hit on Pregnant GF

10/22/2018 5:13 AM PDT
Breaking News

Rae Carruth -- the piece of garbage NFL star WR who hired a hitman to kill his pregnant girlfriend -- was released from prison Monday morning, 19 years after the deadly incident. 

Rae was a talented football player -- the Carolina Panthers took him in the 1st round of the 1997 NFL Draft and made the NFL All-Rookie Team after a pretty solid rookie season. 

But, he threw it all away in Nov. 1999 when he conspired with a gunman to murder 24-year-old Cherica Adams, who was 8 months pregnant with his child. 

Officials say Carruth and Adams got in separate cars after a movie date and once they got on the road, he blocked her vehicle so the gunman could have a clean shot. 

Adams was hit 4 times but managed to call 911 -- and emergency personnel were able to perform an emergency C-section and save the baby. Cherica died 4 weeks later. 

The child, Chancellor Lee Adams, was born with severe cerebral palsy due to trauma from the shooting. He's been raised by Cherica's mother, Saundra, ever since. 

Rae was hit with several criminal charges -- but when the time came to turn himself into authorities, he infamously ran like the coward he is. He was later found hiding in the trunk of a car in Tennessee. 

Carruth was ultimately convicted of conspiracy to commit murder, attempting to destroy an unborn child and discharging a firearm into occupied property. 

He was sentenced to 18 to 24 years in prison. 

Carruth -- now 44 years old -- told WBTV in a recent interview he's "excited" to get out of prison but nervous about how he'll be received by the public, acknowledging there is "so much hate and negativity toward me."

Yeah, he's got that right.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi got into a brawl inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey ... and that led to his death ... according to Saudi officials finally speaking out about the controversial and brutal incident.

The Saudi kingdom's public prosecutor says the Washington Post reporter -- who was last seen inside the Saudi Consulate on October 2 -- got into an argument with men inside the building, and a fistfight broke out. The prosecutor isn't saying what sparked the argument, or how Khashoggi actually died.

The prosecutor says 18 Saudis have been arrested in connection to the case.

Turkish officials have claimed Khashoggi -- a harsh critic of the Saudi kingdom -- was dismembered inside the Consulate by a team of more than 10 Saudi agents.

His body has not been recovered.

Hailey Baldwin is taking getting "wifed up" to a whole new level ... filing legal docs to possibly cash in on her hubby's famous last name.

Baldwin submitted an application -- obtained by TMZ -- to register the trademark for the name Hailey Bieber. The application doesn't say much, but she's made one thing clear ... the trademark is meant to cover a possible clothing project in the future.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin and Hailey headed to an NYC courthouse early last month to obtain their marriage license. We later learned the two actually got legally hitched that day in a courthouse ceremony.

The new couple hasn't had a big wedding yet, but we're told that'll likely happen in the next few months in upstate New York or Bieber's native Canada.

Before Curtis Granderson steps into the batter's box Friday night ... he needed a visit to the dentist's chair -- 'cause dude JACKED UP his tooth sliding into second base Wednesday!!

You'll remember ... The Grandy Man legged out a double in the 9th inning of the Brewers' Game 5 loss to the Dodgers -- and his helmet whacked him square in the mug on the slide.

Curtis ended up with a fat lip AND a broken front tooth to go along with the L ... and even said afterward the chipped piece got STUCK IN HIS LIP!!!

BUT ... the story has a happy ending -- 'cause Curtis hit up Mykleby & Thao Family Dentistry in Wauwatosa before Friday night's first pitch ... and he's cheesin' like normal now.

The smile might be fleeting, though ... Milwaukee's on the verge of elimination.

It's gotta be the knee!!!!

At least, that's what we think Josh Gordon was saying when he decided to throw a tat of Spike Lee on his right leg this week.

The New England Patriots wideout hit the tattoo shop to get a pic of Spike -- in full Mars Blackmon costume -- permanently etched near his kneecap ... and it came out pretty dope.

Unclear why J.G. wanted a photo of Lee from the iconic, "It's Gotta Be The Shoes" Michael Jordan Nike ads ... but, then again -- there are a lot of questionable tats on Josh's bod these days.

(He wears No. 10 now. Thanks, Tom.)

Pats play Sunday in a tough game against the Bears. If he balls Like Mike ... at least now we know why.

Seriously -- watch the video and tell us we're overreacting. This is wild and we wish we were a part of it.

Next up for the Sox -- either the Dodgers or Brewers, depending on who wins this weekend.

By the way, we spoke with "Seatbelt Psychic" star Thomas John BACK IN JULY -- and he predicted Red Sox vs. Dodgers in the World Series. 

Now, he's ONE GAME AWAY FROM BEING RIGHT! PSYCHICS ARE REALLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!

Rep. French Hill I've Got Nothing to Do with Offensive Ad Targeting Black Voters

10/18/2018 6:29 PM PDT
Breaking News

Arkansas Rep. French Hill says he had absolutely nothing to do with the shocking radio ad targeting black voters with threats of white Democrats lynching black men accused of rape by white women.

French called the political ad appalling and outrageous ... saying there's no room in his state for this nonsense and making clear he in no way supports the messages. 

The ad is running on Arkansas radio stations popular within the black community. 

Basically, the ad suggests French and the GOP will protect black men against white women making unfounded claims of rape.

The political spot also draws a direct connection to the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, theorizing if HE had to go through that ... imagine what it means for black men. The overall theme echoes one of President Trump's favorite new catchphrases ... guilty until proven innocent.

Oscar De La Hoya Claps Back at Mayweather 'We Don't Hit Women'

10/18/2018 1:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

The feud between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather is getting extremely personal -- and nasty -- with Oscar now calling out Floyd's domestic violence conviction to humiliate him. 

Floyd went after Oscar earlier Thursday -- posting an old photo of De La Hoya wearing fishnet stockings and heels -- and saying, "I fought her and her name is Oscar 'Golden Girl' Dela Hoya."

Floyd then implored his fans on social media to "leave the most disrespectful caption you can think of" about Oscar.

Now, Oscar is firing back ... saying, "Hey, [Canelo Alvarez] someone is salty about your record breaking contract with @dazn_usa. Good thing we will never resort to hitting women."

He added some hashtags -- "#DomesticAbuser #DomesticViolence #Salty #antidomesticviolence #FloydMayweather #SaltyFloyd #FloydSaltyMayweather #whyyoumad."

Of course, Floyd was convicted of domestic violence in 2011 stemming from an incident where he attacked the mother of his children. He cut a plea deal and served jail time. 

Unclear what Floyd's endgame is in regards to the feud with Oscar and Canelo -- since it seems he's already 86'd the idea of a rematch with Canelo

Maybe these guys just don't like each other. 

Floyd Mayweather Blasts Canelo You're a Cheater and You Suck!

Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather is lashing back at Canelo Alvarez -- saying beating Canelo's ass in 2013 was the easiest fight of his career ... and that includes the Conor McGregor fight. 

Remember, Canelo told TMZ Sports that Floyd is hurting the sport of boxing by mixing it up with MMA stars like Conor and Khabib Nurmagomedov

Canelo told us if Floyd is serious about fighting, he'd schedule a rematch so the two could settle an old beef. 

Speaking of beef, that's where Floyd started his attack on Canelo moments ago -- posting a pic from their 2013 match and saying, "It didn’t matter if Canelo ate his PED steak or not this night, this was by far the easiest fight of my career!"

The PED shot is obviously a reference to Canelo's positive PED test before the GGG rematch, which Canelo blamed on tainted Mexican beef. 

But, Floyd wasn't done ... he continued the attack, "Connor McQuitter was a way better fighter than Canelo's cheating ass and I beat the breaks off him too!"

Floyd also attacked Canelo's new $365 million contract -- which requires Canelo to take 11 fights in 5 years.

"It takes me 36 mins or less to make $300 million plus. It literally takes me 1 night and 1 fight to make what you might make in 5 years and 11 fights! So really, who's still winning? You do the math!"

Sounds like a fight that should be settled in the ring!!!
