'Wonder Woman' Director Hey, Cam Newton ... Get With the Times, Bro

10/5/2017 7:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins says Cam Newton has two choices -- he can either get used to a world where women know football, or get left behind with the rest of the cavemen.

We got Patty out at Craig's and asked her what she thought of Newton sticking his foot in his mouth, telling a female reporter it was "funny" she was asking him about route running.

Cam's in the hot seat for the comments, and Patty told our guy it's probably best he rethink things.

"I think it's a changing world. It takes people time to get used to the fact that so many things like that have changed."

But she saved her most important words for last.

"Everybody has to catch up or get left behind."

Take the help, Cam.

Breaking News

Cam Newton owes a female reporter a big apology -- for disrespecting her during a news conference because she's a woman ... and the reporter is justifiably upset. 

The Carolina Panthers QB was taking questions from the media when Jourdan Rodrigue asked how he felt about WR Devin Funchess being more physical when running his routes. 

Newton laughed and then said, "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes."

Jourdan -- who covers the Panthers for the Charlotte Observer -- replied on Twitter, "I don't think it's 'funny' to be a female and talk about routes. I think it's my job."

When asked if anyone spoke with Cam after the incident she said, "I spoke with him after and it was worse."

"I chose not to share, because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from."

Cam Newton Allegedly Trashes Bev Hills Mansion ... Stacy Keibler's Hubby Sues

10/4/2016 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cam Newton raged WAYYY too hard in the Bev Hills mansion he rented after the Super Bowl -- throwing crazy parties and causing nearly $100k in damage ... this according to a new lawsuit.

The Carolina Panthers QB is being sued by Stacy Keibler's husband, Jared Pobre -- who manages the luxury home rental company that leased an $11 MILLION pad to Newton back in March.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, Newton paid $123k to rent the place for 61 days -- and agreed there would be NO PARTIES, no smoking and no more than 8 guests.

Problem is ... the housekeeper snitched -- telling the rental company Newton had been throwing multiple parties and leaving cigarette ashes all over the house.

In the suit, Pobre says his company warned Newton to cut out the funny business -- and Cam responded by telling the housekeeper to quit diming him out. 

When Newton moved out, Pobre says the house had been trashed -- he broke an expensive fridge, caused water damage to the floors, ruined linens and worst of all ... destroyed a fancy $32,000 rug.

Pobre says they went after Cam for the damages -- $90,324.47 -- but he never paid.

Pobre says home repairs took more than 2 months to complete -- so he wants Cam to fork over an additional $180k in lost rent ... totaling $270,324.47 ... plus legal fees!

We reached out to Cam's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

NFL's Shaq Thompson Blamed Cell Phone In Head-On Crash ... Cops Say

Breaking News

Carolina Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson told police he was reaching for a dropped cell phone when he lost control of his car and smashed into another vehicle head-on early Sunday morning ... cops say. 

Shaq -- the team's 2015 1st round draft pick -- was behind the wheel of a 2016 Chevy SUV which slammed into a 2004 Lexus SUV driven by former Duke QB Anthony Boone at 7:45 AM. 

When cops arrived to the crash scene near Shaq's Charlotte-area home, the NFL player was given a breathalyzer -- which turned up traces of alcohol ... but cops say it was well BELOW the legal limit.  

"He had some residual left over from the night before, but nothing where it was impairing or anything like that,” Sgt. Ben Miller of the State Highway’s Union County told the Charlotte Observer

TMZ Sports also spoke with law enforcement officials who say Shaq said he had been playing music off his cell phone but dropped it ... and that's when he made the ill-fated decision to reach down and pick it up. 

Officials tell us Boone was not wearing a seat belt -- and was hospitalized for a broken pelvis and broken ribs. 

Shaq told police he was not seriously injured. He was not arrested -- but was cited for crossing the center lane.
