Paul Pierce John Wall Doesn't Hate Bradley Beal ... Feud Reports Are B.S.

10/8/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's no inner war between Washington Wizards teammates Bradley Beal and John Wall -- so says NBA superstar Paul Pierce, who says reports of a feud between the two are straight-up wrong. 

Wall has said in the past that "we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court" -- but said their issues are resolvable as long as they come together and talk things out. 

But Pierce -- who played for the Wizards during the '14/'15 season -- says straight-up, "They definitely get along. I was there."

Anything to the contrary, according to Pierce -- "False reports."

By the way, Pierce was leaving new L.A. hot spot, Catch -- and it's clear he's a V.I.P. because during the clip, the owner, Mark Birnbaum, promised to put his picture on the wall in the restaurant.

Raptors' Patrick Patterson We'll Play Meek Mill In Locker Room ... Despite Drake Connection

10/5/2016 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Toronto Raptors will NOT ban Meek Mill music from the locker room this season -- despite the fact his rival, Drake, works for the team ... so says Patrick Patterson

Of course, Drake is the team's global ambassador -- and Toronto is Drake's home turf -- so, we asked PP if the team would rally behind Drizzy and support him in his beef with Meek.

But Patterson says there are guys on the squad from Meek's hometown of Philly (like superstar Kyle Lowry) ... who like to support Philly rappers like Meek. 

And if those guys want to play Meek ... no beef with Drake is gonna stop that from happening. 

There's a lot more ... Patrick also has advice for 76ers rookie Ben Simmons and weighs in on the Kim K. robbery

Check out the clip ... Patrick's one of the coolest guys in the league. 

Byron Scott I Don't Wanna Be Friends w/ D'Angelo Russell ... 'It Is What It Is'

9/30/2016 6:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The rift between D'Angelo Russell and his former Lakers coach Byron Scott is irreparable -- so says Scott who tells TMZ Sports he doesn't want a relationship with the NBA star moving forward. 

Russell has been taking thinly veiled shots at Scott recently -- essentially blaming him for his lackluster rookie season.  

"Everything I went through was new, and there was no guidance from the people that were supposed to give me the guidance," Russell told the L.A. Times

So, when we saw Scott out in L.A. Thursday night, we asked how he felt about the youngster -- and he basically told us he doesn't care ... and isn't looking to be friends with the 20-year-old.  

We also asked Scott if he was interested in getting back into coaching in the near future -- his response, "No time soon."

Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Settlement Negotiations Full Steam Ahead

9/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been in the throes of settlement negotiations almost from the start ... but it got rocky early on when Brad pulled the plug ... sources familiar with the case tell TMZ.

Our sources say both sides wanted a quick end to what could become a contentious divorce. Jolie set the stage by asking for sole physical custody after Brad lunged and made contact with 15-year-old Maddox on a private jet.

We're told when TMZ broke the story about the incident in the air, Brad felt Angelina's people leaked the story and said he was done negotiating. But our sources say shortly thereafter, negotiations resumed. 

We're told there are 4 elements to the settlement discussions:

-- Custody and visitation

-- Temporary support for Angelina and the kids 

-- Permanent financial support

-- Property split 

We're told the first 2 items are well on their way to resolution, with one big hitch. TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the jet incident, and any settlement must conform to the eventual DCFS recommendations.

Our sources say the 3rd and 4th elements have not been resolved.


Chris Brown Accuser Pageant Struts to Chris' Hit Song!

9/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who claims Chris Brown pulled a gun on her got a hysterical assist from Breezy in her quest to win a beauty pageant.

Baylee Curran was a contestant in the Miss Greater Inland Empire Pageant -- it's a prelim for Miss California -- and when it came time for the evening gown competition last weekend, she got a sweet and serendipitous surprise.

The DJ had a great sense of humor because he threw on CB's "Don't Wake Me Up." Watch the video ... you gotta laugh.

0930-baylee-curan-pageant-bikini-credit-pageant-videosThe pageant director tells TMZ the song choice was purely a coincidence. People in the audience say it didn't appear Baylee noticed, but she was upset about something else.

We're told she didn't even place in the competition, so she stormed out early. Still a better exit than the one she made at Chris' house.


Kylie Jenner Leaked Phone Number Off Limits ... For a Whole Year!

9/29/2016 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-kylie-jenner-getty-02Kylie Jenner's phone number was shut down after Rob Kardashian leaked it -- and it won't be up for grabs again 'til next September ... TMZ has learned. 

A rep for Verizon -- where Kylie had her phone plan -- tells us it's going beyond its usual policy of reassigning a disconnected number after 50 days. In this case, they're jumping straight to their max period ... one full year.  

We broke the story ... Rob leaked Kylie's number Monday night after a baby shower mishap. As a shot to Kylie, who he apparently thought was to blame, he tweeted her digits for the world to see.

Verizon tells us they're quick to change a number if a customer complains about getting unwanted or harassing calls or texts. Kylie isn't getting any special treatment ... she just meets that criteria. Now they've moved to take it down and out of circulation for 12 months.  

Meanwhile, you shouldn't waste your time trying to call Kylie ... her hotline won't bling. 


Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Impossible Happens ... Bitter Exes Are Friends Again

9/29/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-calvin-harris-taylor-swift-tmz-instagram-02Satan's gonna need a winter coat -- Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are no longer at war after one of Hollywood's nastiest breakups, and are firmly in the friend zone.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... shortly after Taylor and Tom Hiddleston broke up, Taylor and Calvin started texting and put an end to their drama.

It's unclear who hit send first, but here's what we do know -- we're told this is NOT a rekindling of the old fire. Also, they have NOT spoken on the phone or seen each other in person. It's strictly text, but it's been enough to erase the resentment that exploded after the June breakup ... and that mess about who wrote "This Is What You Came For."

There's been buzz Calvin's new single, "My Way," is about getting over Taylor, but that had nothing to do with their decision to bury the hatchet. Besides, we're told it's really inspired by his old job at a grocery store.

Nothing romantic ... which is exactly how both sides describe the renewed friendship. 


Anthony Michael Hall Neighbor Wants Help ... His Hose Is a Menace!

9/29/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-anthony-michael-hall-tmz-01Anthony Michael Hall takes delight in squirting his next-door neighbor with a water hose, but now he's been ordered to knock it off ... according to court docs.

We broke the story ... the 'Breakfast Club' star was allegedly caught on video getting in the neighbor's face, shoving him to the ground and breaking his wrist.

In docs obtained by TMZ, the neighbor says that attack is just the most recent. Additionally, he says Hall shoots him menacing looks and frequently uses his hose to spray him and his patio. He went to court for a temporary restraining order, and the judge sided with him ... instructing Hall to stop all harassment.

These guys are like the new Hatfields and McCoys -- Hall was arrested for disturbing the peace in 2011, and the neighbor says he was involved in that case too.

UFC's Jeremy Stephens Fires Back At Conor McGregor 'I'll Mop The Floor With You'

9/28/2016 5:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-jeremy-stephens-conor-mcgregor-instagram-tmz-01UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens vows REVENGE against Conor McGregor for trashing him at the UFC 205 media event -- telling TMZ Sports he'll "mop the floor" with the Irish superstar. 

Conor dissed the hell out of Stephens during the event -- when he turned to the UFC veteran and shouted, "Who the fuck is that guy?!" 

The clip went viral -- but now, Stephens is firing back in a scathing statement in which he refers to Conor as "McClown" -- and blasts him as a "bully" who can't hold his own against real fighters. 

"Media and UFC like to fuel this guy's fictional character to always bully and disrespect other fighters like it's funny," Stephens says. 

"I can't accept that and will mop the floor with him."

He adds, "I've been humbling bullies and disrespectful guys like him since grade school."

There's a lot more in the full statement (see below) -- Stephens clearly hopes to settle the score with Conor inside the Octagon. 

By the way, Stephens ain't no bitch -- he's been fighting in the UFC since 2007 and is currently the #7 ranked featherweight. 


Cris 'Cyborg' Ronda Rousey is a Coward ... Bring It On!

9/28/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928_cyborg_ronda-rousey_getty_tmzRonda Rousey is a coward with no heart -- so says Cris "Cyborg" Justino who tells TMZ Sports if Ronda wants to fight, she's all the way down! 

As we previously reported, Dana White says Ronda "absolutely, positively" wants to get in the Octagon with Cyborg -- who's emerging as one of the most dominant fighters in the entire UFC.

We reached out to Cyborg for her thoughts on the situation -- here's what she told us: 

"Ronda [is a] coward ... I'll fight her anytime next year."

"You can have all the money in the world, I have something money can't buy ... warrior heart."

She added, "I'm no coward."

"Ronda doesn't want to fight me. She's afraid to say my name in an interview so she has Dana White tell the story for her."


NFL's Mike Tolbert Pays Car Shop $3,900 In Coins Cops Called In Bill Dispute (Update)

9/28/2016 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0928-mike-tolbert-getty-02update_graphic_red_bar8:00 AM PT -- TMZ Sports spoke with Tolbert who says he tried to pay with a check, but the shop said they would only take cash. 

So, he went to the bank and got the money ... in change. 

As for the dispute, Tolbert says he NEVER threatened anybody -- but says he firmly believes he was intentionally overcharged by more than $1,000 because he's an NFL player. 

Tolbert says his car still isn't running correctly and he'll be taking it to another shop for further repairs. 

One last thing ... Tolbert says the shop is slandering him -- and if they don't stop, he'll consider taking legal action. update-grey-gray-barHere's a jerk move -- Carolina Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert paid an auto shop $3,900 IN COINS after feuding with the owner over the price of a new motor.  

It all started when Tolbert went to Motion Lab Tuning to get some work done -- but MT says the place tried to rake him over the coals because "I'm a millionaire." He posted on Instagram calling the owner a crook. 

But the shop has now fired back in a Facebook post (likely written by the owner) -- claiming Mike was the real problem ... demanding free work because of his NFL status. 

The shop says the dispute got so intense, Mike and a friend threatened him -- so he called police and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg PD banned Tolbert from the property. 

However, that wasn't the end of the war ... the owner claims, "In a passive aggressive manner, [Tolbert] thought he would get the last laugh by paying in coins." 

"Pretty dumb really. All $3,900 in coins were easily identifiable as they came from a bank in boxes and perfectly counted out. I will say this, those coins will be taken in the boxes they came in and will be taken to a teller at BOA for deposit."

The worst part of the story -- the shop owner says, " I also have to break it to my son who is a fan of Mike Tolbert that he is a real scumbag that doesn't want to pay his bills."
