Floyd Mayweather Talkin' Trash to Jim Jones

38 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather doesn't care how famous you are -- he's gonna talk smack right to your face ... just ask rapper Jim Jones

The two squared off in a 2-on-2 hoops game in Miami -- and Floyd let his mouth run ... guaranteeing victory over the "We Fly High" rapper.

Jones didn't just stand and take it -- he returned the smack talk ... and a pretty intense game broke out.

We're trying to figure out who won. Hang tight ... 

Beyonce Rita Ora Cleared From the 'Becky' List

5/3/2016 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503-rita-beyonce-snap-01Judge Beyonce has made her ruling and it appears Rita Ora has been acquitted in the mysterious "Who the hell is Becky?" case.

The singers were smiling and hanging together inside the Met Gala -- perhaps putting an end to rumors Rita is the "Becky with the good hair" that Bey refers to in "Sorry."

Rita posted a Snapchat and included the "Family" caption.

For good measure, she slapped on a "Not Becky" name tag at an after-party.

Okay, okay ... we get it, Rita! Case closed.

Future & Ciara Play Dress Up At Met Gala ... Without Russell Wilson

5/3/2016 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503-future-ciara-getty-01Both Future and Ciara were at the fake adult prom Met Gala thing in NY Monday night ... but who wasn't there? Ciara's very real fiance Russell Wilson.

You know the backstory ... Future & Ciara have been AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS recently ... arguing viciously in public -- and in the courts -- over the parenting of their son, baby Future.

Guess all that animosity was enough for Russell to opt for staying home instead of rushing out to the Gala 'cause while they were all gussied up ... the QB was nowhere to be found. 

Don't worry ... it appears everyone got along.

Prince Sibling War Explodes Brother Believes Someone Wants Him Declared Incompetent

5/3/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-alfred-jackson-prince-tmz-02There's a twist in the brewing war among Prince's brothers and sisters ... it involves a missing persons report and allegations one of the singer's siblings is trying to wrest power from the group.

Our sources say last Friday ... someone filed a missing persons report/welfare check involving Alfred Jackson, the elder half brother of Prince. According to the report, Alfred is disabled and has been living in a V.A. facility near Minneapolis.  

The person who filed the police report claims Alfred just left the facility and no one could find him.

Here's what's interesting. TMZ broke the story ... Alfred was in a meeting last Thursday with Prince's other brothers and sisters. We publicized the meeting on the website. It's odd someone filed a missing persons/welfare check report the next day.

Our sources say Alfred believes the person who filed the report is a sibling who is trying to get him declared mentally incompetent so they can get power of attorney and a second vote in what is turning into a battle over Prince's estate.

We're told Alfred and his lawyer, Frank Wheaton, went to the Minneapolis Police Dept. over the weekend to prove he was fully competent. Alfred presented proof he's got his meds, is taking them and is of sound mind. We're told the missing persons case is now closed.

EXCLUSIVE

0502-britney-spears-arriving-to-deposition-SPLASH-03Britney Spears has to sit face-to-face with the man her family says has been haunting her for years.

Britney is in a conference room right now, answering questions fired off by the lawyer for her former friend and self-proclaimed manager Sam Lutfi. Britney's people went to great lengths to keep Lutfi out of the room, arguing to a judge that he intimidates her and she cannot think properly around him.

The judge didn't buy Britney's argument, but did take steps to protect her. According to the order, the conference room must have a long table, with Britney at one end and Lutfi at the other.

The judge also allowed a "surveillance type camera" to record the entire depo, showing the entire room to ensure Lutfi doesn't intimidate or distract Britney. They're also required to come and go at different times, so he doesn't run into her.

Britney's family claims back in 2007 Lutfi was fueling her with drugs. He claims he was trying to get her off meds.

Lutfi is suing for various things ... he says he's owed money as Britney's manager, and also claims her dad, Jamie, punched him.

Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.

Jenna Jameson Accused of Riding Ex BF's New Chick

4/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-amber-miller-jenna-jameson-instagram-tmz-4Porn legend Jenna Jameson is a serious 'Mean Girl' ... according to Tito Ortiz's current gf, who says Jenna's cyberbullying her so hard she needs a restraining order.

Ex-UFC octagon girl Amber Miller says Jenna stirred up her social media minions to attack her during a "self-proclaimed roast" of Amber. In docs, Amber says Jenna told her thousands of followers to "go after" Amber and they responded.

Amber says she's been flooded with death wishes and taunts from team Jenna, and claims Jenna threatened to throw acid on her face -- which is why she filed a request for a restraining order.

Amber says the harassment's been going on ever since she started dating ex-UFC star Tito ... who, of course, has 2 kids with Jenna.

Jenna now has to stay 100 yards away from Amber -- and stop all forms of harassment.

Lil Wayne No 'Respek' ... Chillin' with Birdman Foes!

4/28/2016 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

428-lil-wayne-instagramLil Wayne put ZERO 'Respek' on Birdman's name by hanging out with Rick Ross and Trick Daddy -- 2 of the guys who prompted Birdman's infamous rant.

Weezy and co. posed together in Miami right before Beyonce took the stage to kick off her tour. We don't know if the middle finger was intended for Cash Money's honcho, but he's gotta be taking it that way after his 'Breakfast Club' blowup over a lack of respek.

Remember, Charlamagne Tha God reminded Birdman that Ricky Rozay and Trick Daddy were also dissing him ... before he stormed out of the studio.

Wayne and Birdman seemed to be patching things up personally -- although they're still at war, legally -- but this pic won't help.  

UFC's Paige VanZant Tyson Fury Deserves an Ass Whoopin' ... Over Sexist Rant

4/28/2016 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paige VanZant has a major problem with heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury -- telling TMZ Sports his sexist comments about women are completely disrespectful ... and he needs to get his ass kicked. 

Fury's been catching hell ever since a December interview in which he said, "A woman’s best place is in the kitchen and on her back."

Wladimir Klitschko blasted the former heavyweight champ -- saying he was a disgrace to the sport of boxing. 

Now, VanZant is following suit ... with the UFC fighter saying all she can do is continue to break female stereotypes to silence morons like Fury. Paige also says she's down to beat some sense into him as well.

Check out the clip.

Dana White The Hatred Is Real Jones, Cormier Beef Is No P.R. Stunt

4/27/2016 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

There's nothing fake about the hostility between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier -- so says UFC honcho Dana White ... who says the hatred these guys have for each other was definitely NOT concocted for publicity. 

Dana -- skyping in from his PRIVATE JET -- joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 ... and was asked straight up if the feud between the fighters was cooked up by the UFC to help sell tickets. 

But Dana shut that down fast -- explaining, "They obviously respect each other as fighters but as human beings they completely dislike each other."

You gotta watch the entire interview Wednesday on FS1 -- we also asked if he felt Cormier crossed the line when he called Jones a "drug addict."

Oh, and he also told us about the sick in-flight meal on his private jet.

Daniel Cormier Jon Jones Is a Drug Addict

4/27/2016 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Daniel Cormier took things personal with Jon Jones Wednesday morning -- calling him a drug addict to his face ... and threatening to "beat that ass" at UFC 200. 

Cormier was responding to Jones -- who had asked Daniel what he'll say to his kids if they ever ask, "Daddy, did you ever beat Jon 'Bones' Jones?"

Cormier essentially said he didn't HAVE to beat Jones to get his championship belt because Jones eliminated himself by testing positive for cocaine. 

FYI -- Jones has said he's NOT an addict ... but admits he made a "really dumb decision" before the drug test for UFC 182 last year.  

The back-and-forth between these guys is nasty ... and multiple people in the UFC tell us the hatred is 100% legit.

So, how did Jones feel about the whole thing? He asked the crowd ... "You guys ready to see D.C. get his ass whooped again?"
