Nelly Sued for Sexual Assault After U.K. Show ... He Vows 'I'll Be Vindicated'

11/15/2018 1:31 PM PST
Breaking News

1:30 PM PT -- Nelly tells us, "The truth will come out, and I will be vindicated. These types of false allegations undermine real claims of sexual abuse/harassment by real victims."

He's also defending his GF, Shantel, saying she's been through enough. "I am a father to a beautiful strong woman. I was raised by a strong single woman. I love them all very much. I own my actions and take responsibility for my conduct with Monique Greene. We had CONSENSUAL sex after meeting in a club. Period. And for that I had to deal with the repercussions of my poor choice. I am repairing the trust that I broke with Shantel, I have apologized to my family and friends for the embarrassment I have caused them. And, I am committed to be a better man."

Nelly adds, "I do NOT plan on walking away quietly. I have to speak up for my family and for the real victims strong enough to come forward and face people that have actually assaulted them."

Nelly's facing new legal trouble -- a woman is suing him for an alleged sexual assault after one of his shows in England.

The woman, who's filed as a Jane Doe -- claims Nelly masturbated in front of her multiple times after the December 2017 Essex concert. We broke the story ... Nelly was under criminal investigation back in February after the woman came forward with the allegations.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, she says they met during a meet-and-greet and he whispered in her ear to stay behind. She did, but that's when she claims he dropped his pants and started masturbating while saying, "You want this d**k don't you."

Doe claims she rebuffed him several times but Nelly would not back off, and told her he wanted to ejaculate on her. She says she told him something to effect of ... "You may have more quid in your bank than I do. But this doesn't make you any more special. Pull your trousers back up and f*** off."

The woman claims Nelly got aggressive and clenched his fist -- and when she asked if he was going to hit her, he allegedly said ... "No I'm just frustrated. I'm not used to not getting my way, just do it." She claims he forced his penis into her mouth, and that's when she jumped back and was able to flee the room.

She's also suing Nelly's GF, Shantel Jackson, for calling her a liar on Twitter.

As we first reported ... Nelly and another woman, Monique Greene, reached a mutual settlement after he was accused of raping her on his tour bus in October 2017.

Draymond Green K.D. Beef Helped Team 'Made Us Stronger'

Breaking News

Draymond Green says his heated argument with Kevin Durant -- one in which he repeatedly called K.D. a "b*tch" -- is only gonna make the Warriors better ... saying, "Good luck with us now!"

ICYMI ... the Golden State stars got into it at the end of a loss to the Clippers on Monday -- with Durant upset at Green in the huddle for a late-game turnover.

Green fired back harshly ... callin' Durant a "b*tch" multiple times -- and reportedly even letting the argument spill into the post-game locker room.

Green was eventually suspended one game -- and fined $120,000 -- for the altercation ... but told reporters Thursday the fight ain't gonna end the Warriors' dynasty.

"If this only makes Kevin, myself and the rest of my teammates stronger, that's what it's going to do," Green says.

In fact ... Draymond promised an EVEN BETTER version of the Dubs now.

"If you think you saw something before, good luck with us now. We not going to crumble off of an argument. We going to move forward."

That might be true for THIS season ... but Klay Thompson AND K.D. are free agents this summer -- and even Draymond couldn't guarantee their future with the team after that.

"At the end of the day, as I've said before, whatever Kevin decides, whatever Klay decides to do, whatever who decides to do, we had great years together and I support everybody wholeheartedly."

Stormy Daniels isn't letting her attorney's legal trouble derail her mission -- she jetted off to merry ole England Thursday to make 'em even merrier by talking porn in a super-tight red dress.

Stormy's inside the hallowed halls of Oxford University and we're guessing no one else on campus is rocking 5-inch stilettos.

You can see she's got the FULL attention of the students as she opens up about sex, guns and other fluff. Seriously ... that's the title of her speech.

So far, Michael Avenatti's arrest for domestic violence hasn't come up, but she's said if the allegations turn out to be true ... she'd drop him. So far, she's sticking to her script, telling the captivated students why it's bad for society to stigmatize porn stars and other sex workers.

Oxford just got wayyy less stuffy, old chap. Pip pip, cheerio!!

"Today I asked the woman of my dreams to marry me!" Josh said ... "She said yes!"

The two met when Josh was playing for the Astros' minor league team, The Hooks, three years ago ... and Maria worked for the team in marketing.

Le'Veon Bell's locker turned into a garage sale on Wednesday ... with his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates savagely raiding his things after he bailed on the season.

Bell no-showed for the league-imposed deadline on Tuesday ... which ended his 2018 season before it even started.

Players quickly found the silver lining of the situation after practice ... taking all his Jordan brand cleats and team gear.

Oh ... and a mixtape labeled "Le'Veon Bell #1," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

"Appreciate the cleats, my guy," Bud Dupree said while takin' his new Js.

It's probably all in good fun ... the Stillers are 6-2-1 and James Conner is straight-up COOKIN' on the gridiron. So, it doesn't seem like there's any bad blood over there.

No word on how Le'Veon's gonna take it. But hey, he had his chance.

WWE's Becky Lynch Blasts Rousey ... For Post-Holm Fight Depression

11/14/2018 1:08 PM PST
Breaking News

WWE Superstar Becky Lynch just ripped Ronda Rousey ... saying the depression she had after losing to Holly Holm in 2015 proves she's a weak-minded person.

ICYMI ... Rousey and Lynch have been feuding for weeks ... and were set to fight this weekend at WWE's "Survivor Series" to settle things.

But, Lynch had to pull out of the tilt after suffering a "broken face" on Monday's RAW ... which pissed Rousey off.

"I’m really sorry to hear The Millennial Man will not be showing up for her legally arranged ass whooping on November 18th at the Staples Center," Rousey wrote in a lengthy post on her Instagram.

Lynch responded shortly after ... and didn't hold back, saying, "When I got my face broke I got up, owned you THEN showed up the next day looking to fight some more."

"When you got your face broke you hid for a year under your blankie. Your mind is as weak as your jaw, & I’m going to move heaven & earth to come destroy them both."

Of course, she's referencing TMZ Sports' video from '15 ... where Ronda covered her face with a pillow after returning from the Holm fight.

We know ... storylines are scripted -- but this one feels personal.

Rousey has called the post-Holm fight period the lowest point of her life ... saying she had suicidal thoughts after the loss.

Unclear when the Lynch-Rousey match will be rescheduled for ... but one thing is clear -- there's some pretty bad blood between these two. 

Dallas Woman Left in Coma After Botched Nose Job in Mexico

11/14/2018 8:26 AM PST
Breaking News

A Dallas woman who went to Mexico for a nose job is now fighting for her life after the botched procedure put her in a coma, and her family is desperately trying to get her better medical care.

Real estate agent Laura Avila traveled to Ciudad Juarez last month to save some cash on the plastic surgery, as it's significantly cheaper there. Her attorney, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ the anesthesia used on her was administered incorrectly ... and way too early.

We're told the clinic staff left Laura under anesthesia for hours because the head doc was running late. As a result, Laura suffered severe brain swelling and went into a coma.

Laura was stuck in Mexico for 8 days before her family could finally transfer her to a hospital in El Paso, TX, where doctors revealed she'd have to be kept alive with breathing tubes and machines, or be taken off life support. The family now wants a second opinion in Dallas.

The problem ... we're told they're having trouble getting Laura admitted to a facility in Dallas, because she reportedly lacks insurance. The family has created a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs.

Friedman tells us ... "We don't need any guarantees from anyone, we just want better diagnosis and treatment."

Aqib Talib didn't just have the best seats in the house for Tuesday night's Rockets-Nuggets game ... dude got the dopest souvenir ever too -- James Harden's game-used jersey!!!

The L.A. Rams -- in town 'cause they wanted to practice at altitude to prep for their now-moved Mexico City game (more on that later) -- popped by the Pepsi Center to catch some hoops.

Dudes like Talib, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff and Marcus Peters were all courtside ... but for some reason -- Harden decided Talib was most worthy of the post-game swag.

The Bearded One even signed it ... and Talib loved it, saying, "That courtside drip, you feel me?! That's authentic. It's still sweaty. That thing still sweaty, straight off the court!"

L.A. was set to face the Chiefs next Monday night in Estadio Azteca, and was trying to hit up Colorado Springs all week to prep for the altitude in Mexico's capital.

But, since recent Mexico City concerts tore up the field ... the game got moved back to L.A. -- which appears to mean the Rams will head home soon.

Don't feel too bad for at least one of the Rams superstars for leaving the game empty-handed -- Gurley was still rockin' the sick diamond pendant YG gifted to him this week!!

P!nk's Husband Carey Hart Warns Wildfire Looters ... Will Be Shot On Site

11/13/2018 5:00 PM PST
Breaking News

P!nk's husband has a message for the spineless thugs ransacking homes left vacant in the evacuation zones of the raging SoCal wildfires ... try looting our neighborhood, and you'll be shot on site! 

Carey Hart, the former pro motorcycle racer, issued the ominous warning Tuesday on IG, cautioning looters to think twice if they're coming into Malibu. The caption was paired with an undated photo of masked gunmen behind a sign that says, "Looters will be shot on site."

Looting in the evacuation zones is a major issue in the wake of the Woolsey Fire ... thieves know most homeowners have evacuated, and power outages have turned off security systems on many properties, creating prime conditions for looters. 

P!nk and Carey were forced to flee their beachside property in Malibu ... though their home reportedly escaped the flames. 

More than 300 law enforcement officers have been dispatched to guard the evacuation zones in L.A. and Ventura County ... but Carey is apparently taking matters into his own hands, and encouraging his neighbors to do the same.
