LeSean McCoy Ordered to Let Ex-GF Back In Home ... With Sheriff

8/14/2018 1:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A judge has ordered LeSean McCoy to allow his ex-girlfriend, Delicia Cordon, back into his Georgia home, so she can collect her belongings ... as long as she has a sheriff to accompany her. 

Cordon had moved out of the home after she was pistol whipped in a violent robbery on July 10 -- and McCoy has since changed the locks, according to court docs. 

Cordon argued that she still had valuable pieces of property in the home -- including jewelry and photos -- but McCoy refused to let her retrieve the items. 

But, moments ago, a state court judge in Fulton County signed off on a plan for Cordon to go to the house on August 20 at 2 PM with a deputy sheriff who will supervise while she collects her stuff. 

The war between the two sides is far from over -- Cordon is suing McCoy in connection with the robbery and assault ... insinuating he orchestrated the incident. 

For his part, McCoy is adamant he had nothing to do with the crime. 

Coolio Off Probation in Airport Gun Case

8/14/2018 11:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Coolio's airport gun bust is officially behind him -- a judge just released him from the rest of his probation sentence.

We got the "Gangsta's Paradise" rapper leaving court in L.A. County following a hearing in which the last year of his 3-year probation was waived in his gun case. It's unclear why the court cut him a break ... we've got a call in to the D.A.'s office.

We broke the story ... Coolio was arrested in 2016 at LAX after a loaded gun was found in one of his bags. He was charged with possession of a concealed weapon, and eventually pled guilty ... which resulted in a sentence of 3 years probation and community service.

There's a lesson in all this, and Coolio hilariously told us how he'd avoid a future "misunderstanding."

With his own troubles behind him, he offered Omarosa some advice regarding her White House recordings. It involves history and not biting the hand that feeds ya. 

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. 

Stay tuned ...

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.

You can see the "Oh crap" look on one of the perp's face -- both men immediately turn tail and book it out of the home.

Debra Tate Margot Brings Sharon Back to Life In 'Once Upon a Time' Role

8/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sharon Tate is about to be resurrected in spectacular fashion in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, thanks to Margot Robbie ... so says Sharon's sister, who watched the action on the closed set. 

Debra Tate says QT's flick "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" -- which centers around the murders of her sibling and her friends at the hands of the Manson Family -- is magnificent because Margot is capturing all the nuances from the slain actress. 

It's a hell of an Oscar pitch. Debra says Margot's taking the role incredibly seriously ... and it shows from what she's seen firsthand on set. And, of course, the resemblance is uncanny.

There's also this ... Debra says all the A-listers attached -- including Leo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, just to name a few -- are actually super friendly in real life. How 'bout that?!

Debra had previously bashed Tarantino and his cast for not reaching out to her for her blessing, but that's all changed. She came out fully supporting the movie late last month ... and it sounds like the film has come to exceed her expectations since then. 

'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.

3:15 PM PT -- Famed attorney Marty Singer is representing Jane Doe and he tells us, "We consider [Bari's] cross complaint to be specious."

It's also worth noting ... prosecutors in the UK are still proceeding with a criminal case against Bari for allegedly raping the woman.A$AP Bari, one of the co-founders of the A$AP Mob, is going after the woman accusing him of sexual assault ... claiming she wove a web of lies to get him to pay up big-time.

He claims Doe told police, "seeing the video being deleted was like having a weight lifted" off her shoulders.

As for the video that eventually went viral exposing Doe ... Bari claims that video was taken without his knowledge by a third person in the room when Doe hooked up with Bari's assistant. Bari's suing for defamation and civil extortion for allegedly pressuring him into settling.

Exclusive Details

6:14 PM PT -- Casanova's attorney, Scott E. Leemon, tells us, "Casanova adamantly denies the allegation that he assaulted anyone. Any contention he did is totally false. We are in the process of conducting our own investigation into these false allegations." 

Casanova is a wanted man in NYC for an alleged brutal assault that left a woman with a busted jaw and stitches in her face ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a warrant was issued for the arrest of the "Set Trippin" rapper late Friday night. The alleged victim, Niya Rucker, claims she was attacked by Casanova and his crew at Good Stuff Diner around 4:40 AM last week.

We're told Casanova thought Rucker was filming him with her phone and became enraged, and an attempt to stop her and take her phone turned violent.

Law enforcement says Casanova and an accomplice assaulted Rucker -- leaving her with a possible fracture in her jaw and a facial laceration requiring 4 stitches -- and one of them put her in a sleeper hold.

We're told they then fled the scene.

Rucker told PIX11 News she wasn't filming the rapper at all but was simply shooting her meal for Instagram Live. She also says she's certain she was attacked by Casanova and could identify him by the chains he wears.

Her attorney, Abe George, tells TMZ ... Niya's still in serious pain almost a week from the violent assault, and is on a liquid diet due to her fractured jaw. He says their main concern is bringing Casanova and his accomplices to justice.

We reached out to Casanova ... so far, no word back.
