Three Dallas Cowboys legends are back on the same sideline ... rooting on their daughters who all play in the same elite youth soccer league ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Emmitt Smith, Tony Dorsett and Charles Haley -- together they have 9 Super Bowls, 17 Pro Bowls and 2 Hall of Fame busts -- and they get together every weekend as soccer dads. 

"[Our daughters] are out there ballin', Dorsett tells us ... "The apples don't fall far from the tree."

Tony -- who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in '94 -- says his daughter plays on the same team with Haley's kid ... and even though Emmit's daughter plays on another squad, "They go head to head sometimes."

"When we're together, we talk about football. It's not usually about the old days. We talk about what's going on in the league now," Dorsett says. 

Tony says the guys are all very supportive of each other's kids -- "All of the girls are very talented" -- but says Charles' daughter is a star among stars. 

Pretty cool, right?

10:45 AM PT -- TMZ Sports obtained the police report which shows cops were called to Smoot's residence around 11 AM.

Smoot's GF told police Smoot pushed her against the wall in their bathroom when she tried to grab the keys to his truck so she could drive it to work. 

The GF says, "He scratched her on the knuckle and the stomach." 

She also claims Smoot "grabbed her shorts and ripped them."

The responding officer noted that the GF has "minor marks to the knuckle and stomach. Her shorts were ripped in the crouch [sic] area."

We spoke to the GF who tells us, "He came through the door after me and ripped my boxer shorts."

The GF says she ran outside the home and tried knocking on neighbor's doors -- but no one answered. Eventually she claims she got back in her house and called cops and hid in a closet until police arrived. 

After the cops arrived, the GF says she went to Smoot's truck and found a half-empty box of condoms ... and believes that's why he was trying to keep her out of the car. 

We spoke with a rep for Smoot who told us the ex-NFL has no comment and wants the legal process to run its course.

Kirk Cameron

'God Hates F*gs' Vid Is a Smear Campaign ...

I Love Everyone

11/24/2014 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

112414_kirk_cameron_launch_v5Kirk Cameron says a video of him blurting out, "God hates f*gs" ... is old news -- from 15-20 years ago -- and is merely being reposted by detractors, angry at the success of his latest Christian film.

The clip shows a conversation between Cameron and Ray Comfort -- his partner in a Christian outreach website -- where Kirk says, "God hates f*gs, and you're going to Hell."

It's obvious the video is edited -- and a rep for Cameron tells us the statement is blatantly "taken out of context." He says Cameron's latest film, "Saving Christmas" is doing very well ... and claims angry Atheists cut up the vid and posted it in an attempt "to defame him."

The rep adds Kirk loves all people.

Former 2 -time welterweight champs have all the fun ... just ask Andre Berto -- who spent his weekend turning up with Chris Brown and Trey Songz at Trey's ultra exclusive 30th birthday party.

Sources close to Berto tell us he thought the theme -- with rides and prizes -- was "one of the dopest party concepts" ever. You can see in this video ... Chris and Trey rode bumper cars, and also did an impromptu concert.

The party was a tough ticket  ... we're told there were only 75 guests. Hollywood-speak for intimate.

Jennifer was drinking Pump-tinis and Lisa's Sangria. 

Lawrence has confessed she LOVES reality TV ... and the Instagram video makes it clear ... in her head Vanderpump Rules.

DeSean -- whose Redskins are 3-7 -- decided to cheer himself up with a "Treat. Yo. Self" moment ... and hooked himself up with a monster chain from one of L.A.'s top jewelers. 

How monster you ask? 2,200 diamonds, 22 inches and a HALF KILO of gold. Treat. Yo. Self.

The Dr. Frankenstein behind the bling is Ofer -- Ceo of NuO jewelry in L.A. He tells us DeSean wanted a Cuban link chain ... which is back in style these days thanks to stars like Jay Z and Usher

He ordered one in pure gold, but when he got it back ... DJ decided it wasn't quite swaggy enough so he put in another work order with Ofer that involved more ice than the North Pole.

Ofer tells us Desean's customizations pushed the value of the chain to $75,000. Easily one of his most expensive pieces ever. 

Treat. Yo. Self.

1119-jeter-jessica-alba-01
When you've banged as many chicks as Derek Jeter ... running into exes becomes an occupational hazard, and Tuesday night it was Jessica Alba's turn for the awkward moment.

Jeter and Alba were both guest speakers at the Goldman Sachs technology conference in Las Vegas. Jeter was there for his new website (theplayerstribune.com) and Alba was talking about her Honest Company baby products.

The after party went down at Hyde Bellagio Nightclub -- and sources inside tell us Jessica and Derek did have a 10-minute chat while they were there. Nothing hot and heavy, we're told ... just enough to talk about her kids and his retirement. 

Still ... Cash Warren and Hannah Davis can't be thrilled.

Chris Brown

Slaps Tupac Lyrics

On $500K Lambo!!

11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chris Brown Paints Car TupacChris Brown knows how to suck all the value out of a perfectly good $500,000 Lamborghini ... hire someone to slap lyrics from a Tupac song all over the formerly sexy ride.

Chris' inspiration for his latest paint job was Tupac's "Lord Knows" -- and it took artist Huero 16 hours to hand paint the song lyrics on the car's roof and hood.

Give CB credit for one thing -- he made sure Huero didn't use any f-words or n-words in the final product ... y'know, to keep it kid friendly. That's classy ... gangsta style.

Of course, you remember some of Chris' previous lambo work -- the multi-colored Hot Wheels version, the powder blue, and the one covered in fingerprint residue.

Ferruccio Lamborghini ... continuously rolling in his grave since Breezy learned to drive.

1116-solange-knowles-beyonce-jay-z-akmgsiSolange Knowles looked great during her wedding, but after the reception she broke out in hives ... and by process of elimination, she's either allergic to shrimp, or Jay Z.

It doesn't seem to be a case of nerves ... Beyonce's sister's face appeared smooth and radiant in the wedding photos ... but after the reception -- when she got in a car with Jigga -- all hell broke loose on her face.

According to our sources, Solange suffered some kind of food allergy, though she isn't sure what it was from. We're told the hives were gone in a matter of minutes.

Solange got hitched in New Orleans Sunday -- she married music video director Alan Ferguson.

Rough.

Bruce Jenner

Wrecks Truck in Brutal Race

11/16/2014 3:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1116-bruce-jenner-racing-INSTAGRAM-01Bruce Jenner got tossed into a Mexican ditch, and is lucky to be alive ... after wrecking his million dollar ride in the legendary Baja 1000 off-road race. 

Bruce and his son Burt Jenner were taking part in the brutal competition -- in which multiple drivers and spectators have been killed -- when their suped up truck rolled on Thursday. 

We're told Bruce was behind the wheel around mile 170 ... when he veered into the ditch and ripped off the power steering line. He and Burt had to wait a few hours for their crew to make it to their location.

As we previously reported ... sponsors and investors sunk a million bucks into the truck so Bruce and Burt could race.

During the break, the Jenners drank beer and ate pizza with some locals. When the crew showed up the team leader said they'd have to pull out of the race because -- keeping it real -- they lost too many hours after the wreck.  They had no chance of winning.

At least Bruce still has his gold medal.
