Kenyon Martin Master P Is Wrong Kobe Would Destroy You!

11/25/2015 2:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Master P is OUT HIS DAMN MIND if he thinks he could take Kobe Bryant in 1-on-1 ... so says someone who would know, ex-NBA star Kenyon Martin

The #1 pick of the 2000 NBA Draft was out in L.A. when he told us straight up -- Kobe is still a monster and would wreck P if they ever crossed paths on the court. 

Martin says he respects P ... but when it comes to this situation, it's laughable.

Master P I CAN BEAT KOBE ... In 1-On-1

11/25/2015 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Master P's throwing more shade at Kobe Bryant -- telling TMZ Sports he's old, he should retire ... and he's pretty confident he'd SMASH the Lakers superstar in a game of 1-on-1. 

P was handing out turkeys to families in need in Watts when we asked how he felt about Kobe ... who's been struggling mightily this season.  

"I think that father time caught up with him," P said ... while telling us the Mamba should hang up the sneaks for good. 

And then there's this ... P -- who had 2 preseason stints with NBA teams back in the day -- told us he thinks he could ball Kobe up in a 1-on-1 game ... and he wasn't joking. 

Tensions have been high with these two this year -- especially after P publicly blamed Kobe for not helping Lamar Odom get a new contract with the Lakers ... criticism that Kobe didn't take kindly to. 

So, when's the game? Maybe April ... Lakers probably won't have anything going on around then. 

The Gap Band Lawsuit I Dropped a Bomb on My Brother

11/25/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


R&B legend "Uncle" Charlie Wilson is at war with his brother over just who exactly IS The Gap Band ... and who gets to keep making money off of the name. 

Ronnie Wilson filed a lawsuit claiming Charlie is derailing his efforts to launch a comeback tour. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ronnie says he recently booked 2 big gigs -- one at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, and another at Howard Theatere in Washington, D.C.

Ronnie says after he sealed the deals, Charlie -- who left the band in 2009 -- had his people step in and somehow interfere with the bookings. Ronnie says both venues pulled the plug.

The elder Wilson points out his band existed for years before kid bro Charlie joined in '72. 


Ronnie says his new Gap Band stood to make more than $20k from the 2 gigs. He's suing for damages and to get the court to block Charlie from interfering with future bookings.

His point -- you might have been the lead singer, but this band is MINE, bro.

Chris Rock to Wife The Girl Who Lived with Us is NOT My Daughter

11/24/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-chris-rock-daughter-old-game-GETTY-01Chris Rock has not seen the 7-year-old girl who lived with him since she was an infant in more than a year ... and we're told it's because he believes his estranged wife Malaak did something shady to get her here in the first place.

It's a bizarre story ... and one that triggered an international investigation. Here's what we know. Back in 2008, a 6-month-old named Ntombi from South Africa began living with the Rock family. The girl stayed in the family house ever since. Ntombi was even enrolled in a New Jersey school.

Ntombi's biological parents reportedly were unemployed South Africans and somehow the kid ended up at the Rock home.

Everything changed last year when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings. We're told Chris maintained his relationship with his 2 biological daughters but hasn't seen Ntombi since the split.

Around the same time as divorce docs were filed, South African officials opened an investigation to determine how the child went from their country to the U.S., when there was no evidence of a legal adoption.

As for why he went radio silent with Ntombi ... sources connected to Chris say he never signed legal docs to adopt her, and bringing her over to the U.S. was all Malaak's doing.

As far as we can tell there was never an adoption. It's unclear how and why the biological parents allowed Ntombi to live with the Rock family for years. 

Chris' rep tells TMZ he does not have an adopted child. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but did not get a return call.

Donald Trump has been warned -- pop off again about Ronda Rousey, and you just might have to deal with UFC champ Conor McGregor!

The featherweight title holder was at LAX Monday, talking about a Ronda comeback -- whether she can get her title back from Holly Holm when they inevitably square off in a rematch. 

Conor has some good advice for Rousey, but he really got his ire up when the camera guy asked about Trump taking potshots at Ronda. After the loss, the candidate said she's "not a nice person."

Well, Conor's got a very strong opinion about Trump and his mouth.

1118_50cent_jeter_post_instagram-250 Cent says he's DONE being a Yankees fan -- and it's all because Derek Jeter allegedly tried to block him from an male underwear deal because he's too "urban."

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the majority owner of the Frigo men's undie company sued Jeter -- claiming DJ didn't just back out of an agreement to promote the company ... but actively tried to stop them from using 50 as a brand ambassador. 

Now, 50 has responded on Instagram ... saying, "Wow, guess I'm not a Yankees fan anymore. LETS GO METS?"

He added, "Man you can't trust nobody these day.smh."

So far, the allegations against Jeter are just that -- ALLEGATIONS -- but seems 50 believes where there's smoke, there's fire.

11/18/2015 8:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118-olson-sheen-getty-tmz-01Charlie Sheen's HIV announcement is blowing up in the face of his ex-girlfriend Bree Olson ... who's getting blasted by haters, and harassed by exes who think she infected them.

Bree tells TMZ she's shocked at how much hatred and vitriol has been directed at her, while Charlie's getting all the sympathy. One tweet -- "You're a ho! I wish you would've contracted HIV" -- is just an example of the backlash she's getting.

Meanwhile, Charlie's being hailed as brave and a hero.

Bree says multiple ex-bfs contacted her right after her 'Howard Stern Show' interview ... worried they might test positive. She stresses that she has never tested positive -- but understands the guys are "just reacting out of emotion. They are angry just as I am angry."

While Charlie insists he never knew he was HIV positive when he slept with Bree ... she says he NEVER called to give her a heads-up, even though they frequently had unprotected sex. Also, as we reported ... Charlie even admits he was diagnosed just TWO weeks after they broke up.  


Justin Bieber Apologizes to Ronda Rousey ... Then Disses Her

11/18/2015 6:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


It seemed Justin Bieber was finally ready to bury the hatchet with Ronda Rousey -- and then just like that, he reopened the wound. 

Bieber sat down with Entertainment Tonight and was asked about Ronda's beef -- which she claims started when he refused to take a picture with her sister at the Cannes Film Festival. 

"I guess, supposedly, she asked for a picture with her sister or something, and I guess I said no?" Bieber said ... "But I don’t remember this happening so, Ronda, I’m sorry. Don’t kick my ass!"

Beef over, right? 

Wrong ... because moments later, Justin was asked if there was anything he'd like to improve on outside of music -- and he WENT IN on Rousey!

"I would like to get better at boxing ... did you see Ronda Rousey? She got knocked out cold! Oh my God, she got knocked out so bad. Yeah no, she got pummeled."

So far, no word from Ronda on the situation -- gonna assume she ain't gonna be happy.

Donald Trump I'm Glad Rousey Lost 'Not a Nice Person'

breaking news


Seems Donald Trump and Laila Ali have something in common -- 'cause he also HATES Ronda Rousey ... saying he's glad she got thumped up! 

Trump went to Twitter and wrote, "Glad to see that @RondaRousey lost her championship fight last night. Was soundly beaten - not a nice person!"


Of course, the beef could stem from the fact Ronda endorsed Bernie Sanders for president earlier this month -- and ripped Trump along the way. 

Back in August, she told CNN ... "I wouldn't vote for [Trump]. I just really wouldn't trust the guy with running my country, that’s all ... I'm not really going to get into specifics of it, but, I mean, I don't want a reality TV star to be running my country."

Donald did have some nice things to say about one athlete this weekend -- Trump supporter Tom Brady -- saying, "Tom Brady just did it again. He is not only a great guy, he is, without question, the BEST quarterback!"

You back Trump -- he backs you.
