LeSean McCoy Accuses Ex-GF You Jacked My Kobe Shoes!

8/14/2018 10:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeSean McCoy accused his ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, of taking his prized Kobe Bryant sneakers during their heated eviction war ... but she claims he's full of crap. 

Cordon is the same woman who was pistol whipped during a robbery at McCoy's Georgia home back in July -- an incident she has strongly insinuated was orchestrated by LeSean

Before that incident, McCoy had filed court docs seeking to have her evicted from the home -- claiming they had broken up and he wanted her gone. She resisted and now Cordon has filed court docs of her own. 

In the docs, Cordon claims McCoy illegally removed roughly $10,000 in furniture that she owned during a "wrongful eviction" back in June -- and she wants it back. 

She also claims McCoy accused her of stealing his Kobes -- a claim she adamantly denies. 

"Ms. Cordon does not know anything about Kobe Bryant sneakers nor would she have a reason to take Kobe Bryant sneakers," her lawyer wrote in an email to McCoy's attorney. 

The case is set to go in front of the judge Tuesday -- McCoy is not expected to attend in person since he's at Bills training camp.

Boxer Jermain Taylor Off the Hook In Dom. Violence Case ... Accuser Goes AWOL

8/14/2018 9:22 AM PDT
Breaking News

Former boxing star Jermain Taylor just scored a W in his domestic violence case -- prosecutors dropped the charges against him after the accuser suddenly stopped cooperating with authorities. 

Taylor -- the former undisputed middleweight champ -- was arrested back in July 2017 for allegedly biting and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend, Ashley White, during an argument. 

White told police she pepper sprayed Taylor when he took her cell phone -- and he broke it when she tried to call for help. She also claimed Taylor chased her out of the house and down the street. 

Taylor was initially charged with felony terroristic threats, misdemeanor domestic battery and interference with emergency communication. 

But, White went off the grid about a year ago, according to prosecutors who told the court they had been trying like hell to speak with her in order to prosecute Taylor. 

Prosecutors said they went to her home, left messages and spoke with family members -- but nothing panned out. 

On Monday ... prosecutors decided without White they couldn't get a conviction -- so, they moved to drop all charges against him. 

Taylor is still technically serving a "suspended sentence" stemming from a different incident -- when he pled guilty to 9 felonies in crimes committed between 2014 and 2015. 

NFL's Sean Smith Released from Jail In Street Fighting Case

8/14/2018 6:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Oakland Raiders star cornerback Sean Smith is a free man -- he was released from jail Tuesday morning ... roughly 5 months into his 12-month sentence. 

Smith has been locked up since March 13 -- when he pled guilty to felony assault in the brutal attack of his sister's boyfriend during a July 4, 2017 incident in Pasadena, CA. 

The victim suffered major injuries including 5 facial fractures -- and required major reconstructive surgery including having a metal plate inserted into his face. 

Smith was initially scheduled to be released on Sept. 5 due to good behavior and overcrowding -- but he caught an even bigger break ... getting out almost a month before that. 

So, what's next for Smith? He's only 31 years old and was in the middle of a $40-million contract at the time of his arrest. 

In theory, a team could snatch him up -- if they're willing to take a chance on a guy convicted of a very violent crime.

EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna fell victim to a faulty home alarm system as LAPD officers and a helicopter swarmed her Hollywood Hills pad.

Law enforcement sources say they responded to a home alarm at the singer's home Monday night. In a video -- obtained by TMZ -- multiple units can be seen parked outside the property. An LAPD helicopter was also spotted hovering about Rihanna's home in response to the alarm.

Our sources say it was eventually determined the alarm was accidentally triggered, though Rihanna was not home at the time. 

As for the heavy police presence, were told it was because of the history of intruders at Rihanna's crib.

TMZ broke the story ... an intruder was arrested at the property back in May after he allegedly broke in and spent the night. The man allegedly told cops he was there to have sex with the singer -- though she was not home at the time -- but he did not intend to do it forcefully. 

The man was eventually charged with felony stalking and burglary.

'The 100' Star Marie Avgeropoulos Arrested for Felony DV ... Allegedly Attacked BF

8/14/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

An actress who plays a post-apocalyptic juvenile delinquent on TV allegedly went nuclear on her BF in real life and got busted by cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Marie Avgeropoulos -- who stars as Octavia Blake on CW's hit sci-fi show, "The 100" -- was arrested in L.A. last week and booked for felony domestic violence.

We're told a man called police very early on August 5 from inside a car ... claiming his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal argument. Sources say when police arrived, the man had marks on his body ... so Marie was taken to jail.

Her mugshot's just as edgy as her character on '100' -- albeit with a lot less blood and war paint on her face. She does appear to have been crying though. 

A source close to Marie claims the actress was on new meds and mixed it with wine during dinner that evening ... which resulted in a bad reaction. We're told her boyfriend called police thinking they'd diffuse the situation rather than arrest her -- as they're both Canadian and unfamiliar with what'll get a person hauled off to jail in the U.S.

Our source says he begged cops not to take her away ... and even bailed her out after. Marie was released on $50,000 bond.

We're told the boyfriend does not want to press charges.

EXCLUSIVE

Henry Nicholas III -- the billionaire co-founder of tech giant Broadcom -- was arrested after cops say they found cases of hard drugs in his Las Vegas hotel room, and his mug shot kinda says it all.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Nicholas couldn't get into his room at the Encore Tuesday and when security assisted, they discovered his girlfirend, Ashley Fargo, was unresponsive with a semi-deflated balloon in her mouth.

We're told paramedics responded and revived Fargo, but security began questioning Nicholas about the balloon and canisters, which he admitted were nitrous oxide. 

Our sources say security also noticed 2 cases in the room which needed to be inspected per hotel rules ... because they looked like the kind used to carry weapons.

Instead of weapons, Vegas PD found one case full of marijuana and another full of what appeared to be narcotics. The couple was arrested and booked for felony drug trafficking of multiple controlled substances ... including heroin, cocaine, meth and MDMA. Some of the pills were stamped with Winnie the Pooh.

Nicholas, whose company manufactures semiconductors, has a history of serious legal issues. He faced felony securities fraud and drug distribution charges a decade ago, but they were later dropped.

Fargo is the ex-wife of a Wells Fargo heir, Brian Fargo.

'Mighty Ducks' Goalie Stuck in Downward Spiral ... Friend Pleads For Rehab

8/8/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shaun Weiss -- who played Goldberg in "The Mighty Ducks" -- has been in a downward spiral for years, according to a longtime friend who is worried about the former child star's fate.

The friend, Marni Gairhan, has known Shaun for more than 13 years, and she tells us Weiss has battled substance abuse issues and picked the wrong crowd to hang with for way too long. 

Following Shaun's public intoxication bust over the weekend, friends of the actor feel it's time to push him towards rehab. They fear for Shaun's life and believe he's hit rock bottom -- as his mug shot clearly shows.

Shaun's downward spiral dates back to the death of his father 3 years ago, Marni says. Since then, Weiss has been arrested for possession of meth and sentenced to 150 days in jail for stealing -- on top of last weekend's trip to the drunk tank. 

Shaun found steady work after the 3 'Ducks' movies, but it's been a couple of years since his last acting gig. He would tell friends he was working on different projects, but no one ever saw the finished products.

After finding Shaun sleeping on her porch one night last year, Marni decided it was time to contact his niece. Weiss didn't like that, Marni says, and he began to distance himself from his friends.

Still, Marni wants Shaun to get help and she's started a GoFundMe to pay for his rehab.

We reached out to Shaun's niece, but so far no word back.
