The NY Knicks say Charles Oakley is LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH -- claiming "dozens" of Knicks staff, security and NYPD cops witnessed his "abusive behavior" before he was kicked out of MSG.

The Knicks just issued a new statement in the wake of Oakley's media blitz in which he denied any and all wrongdoing in the Wednesday night incident. The Knicks are calling BS.

"There are dozens of security staff, employees and NYPD that witnessed Oakley's abusive behavior."

"It started when he entered the building and continued until he was arrested and left the building. Every single statement we have received is consistent in describing his actions."

"Everything [Oakley] said since the incident is pure fiction."

Dani Mathers Nude Gym Photo Case Prosecutor Wants to Go Hard

2/9/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0208-dani-mathers-snapchat-2Dani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who snapped a pic of a naked woman at an L.A. gym and posted it -- is barking up the wrong tree by asking the prosecutor to go easy on her.

The L.A. City Attorney filed legal docs asking the judge to reject her lawyer's attempt to avoid jail by undergoing counseling and even taking an anti-bullying course. She's also willing to go to school to tell firsthand how bullying harms people.

The City Attorney is scoffing at Dani's attempt for mercy, saying she never even apologized to the 71-year-old victim -- btw, the City Attorney says her age is relevant. You'll recall, when she posted the nude photo she captioned it, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

Dani faces a maximum of 6 months in jail for the crime of invasion of privacy. The City Attorney has not said if he'll demand jail time.

Dani's attorney, Tom Mesereau, tells TMZ ... this is a 'pathetic' attempt by the City Attorney to get a pound of flesh, and says it's a gigantic waste of taxpayer money.

Detective Shaq has joined the Tom Brady Super Bowl jersey investigation ... and he already has a theory -- INSIDE JOB!!! 

FYI, Shaq has been a sworn reserve police officer with real law enforcement agencies in several states including California, Florida and Arizona. He even did some work with the Dept. of Justice.

So, with TB12's jersey still M.I.A. ... we asked Officer O'Neal (who was leaving the Oreo Dunk Challenge) if he had a hunch on who may have jacked the piece of Super Bowl history. 

There's more ... Shaq also sets the record straight on his beef with his "Inside the NBA" co-star, Charles Barkley, and how things went down off camera following their heated exchange last week.

Bill Belichick. Julian Edelman. The ball boys. Reporters. Robert Kraft

The Houston Police Dept. says they're looking at EVERYONE who had access to the Patriots locker room to find out who stole Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey ... 'cause right now they have no idea. 

The Houston PD just addressed the media -- saying they're combing through lists of people who were in the locker room when the jersey went missing. 

They're also asking for reporters and camera people to check video in the hopes someone caught the thief in the act. 

Bottom line ... the jersey is still missing and cops don't seem to have any real leads

Officials say they've read reports that the jersey could be worth around $500,000 ... so it's become a high priority case. Top investigators are on the case!!! 

Kim Kardashian I'm Bling-Less Again ... In My Gaming World

EXCLUSIVE

0207-kim-character-2

Kim Kardashian's video game character is now just like the real deal ... missing the giant rock on her finger.

Animated Kim -- on her mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood -- relaunched sans ring ... and it was no accident. Our sources say the game always tries to maintain a similar story line to the happenings in Kim's real life -- so the diamond ring on virtual Kim just didn't make sense.

As we told you, Kim spent 3 days in NYC talking to a French judge about the ring and the whole robbery. We're guessing that won't be included in the game.

Dennis Rodman Pleads Guilty In Wrong Way Freeway Crash

2/6/2017 2:56 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0206-dennis-rodman-TMZ-01Dennis Rodman just pled guilty to multiple criminal charges in his wrong way freeway incident -- and dodged a BULLET ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, the ex-NBA star was charged with hit and run stemming from a July 20th incident in which he allegedly drove the WRONG WAY on an Orange County, CA freeway -- causing a car driving the other direction to swerve and crash into the center divider. 

Rodman was facing 2 years behind bars -- but we learned he struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to 3 lesser charges and got 3 years probation in exchange. 

We're told Rodman pled guilty to driving the wrong way on a freeway, providing false info to a cop and driving without a valid license.  

Besides the 3 years probation, Rodman was also given 30 hours community service and must pay for the property damage.

Rodman had been spotted at a karaoke bar earlier in the evening and was pictured with keys in his hand. 

Rodman's attorney, Paul S. Meyer, tells us, "We appreciate the careful review of the District Attorney to make the right call in settlement."

Meyer also said the freeway driving error was due to "poor sign placement."

Texas Lt. Gov. Taps Texas Rangers for Tom Brady Jersey Hunt

2/6/2017 10:55 AM PST
Breaking News

0206-dan-patrick-tom-brady-GETTY-01One of the most powerful men in Texas is calling in the big guns to bring back Tom Brady's allegedly stolen Super Bowl jersey ... with the Lt. Gov. of Texas reaching out to the TEXAS RANGERS! 

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick -- the 2nd highest ranking politician in Texas -- just issued a statement vowing to use every resource he can to recover the jersey.

"In Texas, we place a very high value on hospitality and football. Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectible ever,'" Patrick said.

"It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas. I've called Colonel Steve McCraw to ask that the Texas Rangers work with the Houston Police Department in this case."

He added, "I’m a Texans and Cowboys fan first, but the unquestionable success of the Super Bowl in Houston last night was a big win for our entire state and I don’t want anything to mar that victory. Whoever took this jersey should turn it in. The Texas Rangers are on the trail."

Giddyup!!!

There's more video that has surfaced (courtesy of our friends at Yahoo Sports) showing Brady searching through his equipment bag for the jersey while insisting that he "100 percent" put it in there.

The Game Cops Plea Deal For Punching Cop

2/6/2017 10:42 AM PST
Breaking News

The Game struck a plea deal that will keep him out of jail after punching an off-duty LAPD officer during a pickup basketball game.

Game pled no contest to misdemeanor battery and criminal threats ... and was sentenced to 3 years probation. He also got 120 days community service, 26 anger management classes and 180 days jail time ... which was suspended.

He'll now have to keep his nose clean for the 3 years or those 180 days in jail could come back to bite him.

You'll recall ... Game socked Onyebuchi Awaji during the March 2015 game in an L.A. gym.

Game also pled to felony grand theft. That was for jacking a photographer's camera while he was being served a lawsuit from Awaji. He settled that case with a $100k payout to the cop.

Tom Brady Missing Jersey No Police Report Filed ... Yet

2/6/2017 9:00 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0206-tom-brady-missing-jeresyThe NFL security team is taking the lead on the Tom Brady missing Super Bowl uniform case ... not the Houston Police Dept. At least that's the situation right now ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The Houston P.D. tells us they have been in contact with the NFL -- and are not launching an independent investigation at this point. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us no one has filed a report with the Houston P.D. as of yet. 

Several sports memorabilia dealers have told us the jersey is already being valued in the tens of thousands of dollars. So, if the jersey was stolen, it would be a felony grand larceny crime in Texas (anything over $1,500 is a felony). The more valuable the stolen item, the stiffer the punishment. 

Brady says the jersey went missing after the game. He says he remembers putting it in his equipment bag but it wasn't there when he went back to his locker. 

We reached out to the NFL for comment -- so far, no word back.

Donald Trump Palm Beach Prosecutor Has His Back

EXCLUSIVE

0203-trump-mar-a-lado-estate-GETTY-01Anyone who thinks they can vandalize Donald Trump's Palm Beach estate because the prosecutor in town is a Democrat better think again.

Vandalism is clearly an issue. Someone already destroyed Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the sign at the Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

Dave Aronberg, the State Attorney who handles Palm Beach prosecutions, tells TMZ Trump's political leanings have no bearing on his decision to prosecute vandalism cases. Aronberg is ensconced in the Democratic Party, but says his job is to follow the law, and that is what he will do.

Aronberg says there's no room for political statements when it comes to vandalism. If anyone vandalizes Mar-a-Lago they will be treated just like anyone else that commits a crime.
