Breaking News

0301_will-allen_getty-2Ex-NFL player Will Allen just got HAMMERED by the judge in his Ponzi scheme case -- he'll do 6 YEARS in federal prison ... officials say.

Prosecutors were gunning for a 78 month sentence ... and they just about got what they asked for. Allen will do 72 months instead.


Prosecutors say the 38-year-old cornerback -- a 1st round draft pick in 2001 -- was a key part of a $37 MILLION scheme that screwed investors out of a ton of money.

Several of Allen's victims were pro athletes.

Allen was locked up immediately following Wednesday's hearing -- see you in 2023.

Ex-NY Giants Lineman Sues 'Red Tails' Star You Stole My Tiki Barber Watch!

3/1/2017 7:23 AM PST

0301-kareem-mckenzie-kevin-phillips-getty-tmz-01Did you know ... when Tiki Barber retired in 2006, he gifted several of his offensive linemen with special Audemars Piguet watches worth about $25,000 each?!

Did you also know ... ex-NY Giants lineman Kareem McKenzie doesn't have his watch anymore because he claims one of the stars of the movie "Red Tails" straight JACKED his timepiece?!

It's all part of a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports in which the now-retired McKenzie says he loaned the watch to Kevin Phillips -- who played Leon "Neon" Edwards in the 2012 flick.

Long story short ... McKenzie says Kevin asked to borrow the watch for a film he was producing and promised to give it back after the shoot. McKenzie says he also loaned the guy $32,500 for film projects.

Problem is ... McKenzie says he never got the watch OR the money back -- instead, he claims Kevin concocted a bogus story about the watch being stolen by some thugs.

McKenzie says in reality Kevin sold the watch for $6,000 to a Hong Kong watch dealer and it's long gone.

McKenzie (a 2-time Super Bowl champ) says he's heartbroken because the watch has all sorts of sentimental value to him.

He's suing for his money back, plus the value of the watch plus damages.


Vegas 'Cannabis Cup' Don't Pass the Dutchie! That Means You Too, Luda

2/28/2017 4:20 PM PST

0228-hightimes-no-weed-tmz-getty-02President Trump's promise to get tough on marijuana is harshing the mellow at a famous cannabis festival in Las Vegas, which is suddenly abiding by federal laws -- meaning NO GETTING HIGH.

Organizers for this year's HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup -- which kicks off in March -- tell us weed is NOT allowed at the event this year, and that goes for headliners Ludacris, Chief Keef and Cypress Hill's B-Real too.

Even though recreational weed is legal in Nevada, we're told the feds informed the Moapa Paiute Tribe -- who own the land where the event is going down -- that federal law prohibits transport, possession, use or distribution of marijuana.

The threat seems clear: We'll be watching. Plus, White House press secretary Sean Spicer recently said point-blank they'd be cracking down on weed.

HIGH TIMES reps say they're still expecting a great event, but want to comply to help the cannabis industry "continue to gain legitimacy and social acceptance."

Talk about a buzzkill.

Oscars' 'Gary from Chicago' Did Hard Time For This ...

2/28/2017 12:33 PM PST

0228-gary-oscars-mug-shot-02"Gary from Chicago" -- the tourist who unknowingly crashed the Oscars with his fiancee -- was in prison as a third striker with a history of stealing ... TMZ has learned.

Gary Alan Coe -- who said he had been in jail for the last 20 years before Sunday night's award show -- was received by California Department of Corrections in 1994 for grand theft exceeding $400, and got locked up again in '97 for petty theft with priors ... and, because it was his third strike, it led to a sentence of 25 years to life with parole.

Law enforcement sources tell us he was resentenced in early 2017 under Proposition 36, and had his 25 year bid reduced to just 6. With pre-sentencing credits and time served ... he walked out a free man last Thursday.

One last detail ... Coe's attorney says he has a prior from 1975 for attempted rape when he was a teenager that required him to register as a sex offender ... but the 20 year sentence was for theft.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Mayweather is listed as the victim in a burglary report for a home he owns in a gated community next to a golf course.

Law enforcement sources tell us it appears someone forced a door open into the home office in the back of the house and stole several purses. 

Other sources connected to the investigation tell us there is also at least 1 expensive watch unaccounted for ... and possibly other items missing. 

Our law enforcement sources say cops have been in contact with Floyd's camp and the boxer has been instructed to take an inventory of his valuables. 

Floyd was in L.A. for the past few days for his big 40th birthday mega-celebration with Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and other famous friends. 

NFL's David Parry Cussed Out Cops During Arrest 'F**gots, P**sies, Fat F**ks'

2/28/2017 7:28 AM PST

0228-david-parry-getty-01Indianapolis Colts lineman David Parry spewed homophobic slurs and cussed out cops during his drunken arrest in Scottsdale over the weekend ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

The 24-year-old defensive lineman was way past belligerent when confronted by Scottsdale PD for attacking a taxi cart driver and stealing his vehicle early Saturday morning.

Cops say he was so drunk, he was spewing nonsense including, "Arrest my cooperation" and "who did I have auto theft with?"

The incident quickly turned combative -- cops say Parry called them "f**king f**gots," and called out some of the officers as, "fat f**k" and "pu**yboy."

He also looked at all the responding officers and told each one individually, "You're a bitch."

One of the cops told Parry he was done talking with him, to which the NFL player responded, "That's what the f**k I thought, bitch -- you have nothing on me."

Parry was asked how much he drank that night and responded, "A lot" and "more than I should have."

Cops say he was so hammered, he was dry heaving at the jail and needed a puke trash can ... just in case.

One last note, cops say Parry is so big they struggled to handcuff him and ultimately needed LEG IRONS to secure his wrists.

Parry was booked for several crimes including robbery, theft, resisting arrest, DUI and more.

0227-jackie-warner-tmzJackie Warner, who starred in a Bravo fitness show, has been arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon, and we've learned her defense is a little white pill called Ambien.

Law enforcement sources tell us Jackie crashed her car in West Hollywood Friday night when she hit a pole. We're told when cops arrived she backed up into a cop car, causing a deputy to jump out of harm's way. She was arrested and taken to jail where her bail was set at $60k.

Sources connected with Jackie tell us she went to lunch that afternoon and had 1 martini. She took an Uber to and from the restaurant. The sources say when she got home she took an Ambien, went to sleep, and when she woke up she was in the hospital ... with no recollection of driving.

The sources add to prove she was "sleep driving," she was not wearing pants when she was arrested ... just underwear.

Our law enforcement sources, however, tell us they administered a breathalyzer test and she blew right around a .08.

2/24/2017 12:30 AM PST

0209-vicki-gunvalson-tmz-01Vicki Gunvalson says she caught an employee red-handed stealing thousands of dollars from her business and reported him to the police.

Sources close to the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tell us she recently noticed huge discrepancies in the books of her insurance brokerage -- a few thousand dollars at least. We're told she did some digging, and it led to a guy who was hired just 2 months ago.

Our sources say Vicki believes the employee embezzled sales commissions to his personal account and poached clients from Vicki's son, Mike, who's a VP at the brokerage.

We're told Vicki canned the guy, and filed a police report 2 weeks ago. Law enforcement sources tell us they've opened an investigation.

Ezekiel Elliott Best Friend's Felony Gun Charge Dropped ... For Now

2/23/2017 12:50 PM PST


Prosecutors have dropped the felony gun charge against Ezekiel Elliott's best friend -- at least for now -- after he allegedly tried to bring a loaded gun into an Ohio bar this past weekend.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Alvarez Jackson was arrested in front of the Park Street Patio bar in Columbus on Friday night. Ezekiel was spotted with cops during the incident but he was NOT arrested, detained or accused of any wrongdoing.

Jackson -- who's been described by Sports Illustrated as Zeke's "best friend" -- was facing up to 5 years in prison on the illegal weapons charge.

A spokesperson for the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney's Office tells TMZ Sports ... police have not provided them with a "felony file" yet -- so they had to drop the case. 

A judge has signed off on the dismissal of the gun charge -- but we're told cops are still investigating and a felony indictment is still possible in the future. 

Bottom line ... he's not exactly off the hook just yet. 

Darius McCrary My Wife Burned Me with Iron Judge Orders Her to Stay Away

2/23/2017 11:12 AM PST

0223-darius-mccrary-tmz-tammy-brawner-twitterDarius McCrary says his wife is lying ... and HE was the one who was attacked by HER with a flat iron to his chest.

Tammy Brawner claimed in legal docs Darius brutalized her 2 weeks ago ... hitting her in the head with his forearm and throwing objects at her, all in front of their 18-month-old daughter.

In new legal docs requesting a restraining order, obtained by TMZ, Darius says the way it went down ... she became verbally abusive before hurling the iron his way, burning his chest and causing a 2nd degree burn.

He says she has a history of violence and he's had to call the cops 3 times. He says she's threatened him with a knife.

Darius puts a theory in his legal docs. He says Tammy -- a former Harlem Globetrotter -- is "desperate for stardom" and he's worried she'll neglect their daughter to achieve newfound fame.  He also says she's super competitive with him and jealous of his fame.

Now get this ... a judge granted Darius' request for a TRO and ordered Tammy to move out of the family house. But she also got a TRO which required him to pack his bags and leave.
