1017-donald-penn-camilla-poindexter-domonique-wife-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Oakland Raiders star lineman Donald Penn is in a BAD situation -- his wife says he knocked up a reality TV star ... and she's PISSED. 

Dominique Penn laid it all out on her Instagram -- saying Donald (who's reportedly made $47 million during his NFL career) secretly hooked up with and impregnated Camilla Poindexter ... who appeared on multiple seasons of "Bad Girls Club."

"My husband cheated on me with this hood rat," Dominique posted.

"She knew he was married from jump!! He knew that he was married! They did this to my family! You don't get brownie points for f***ing a married man for a check thinking he was gonna leave his wife!"

Camilla had a daughter back March -- and Dominique is pretty convinced Donald is the father. Donald already has 3 kids with his wife. 

"He has 4 kids now (paternity test pending) to worry about," Dominique wrote. 

Despite all of that, Dominique says she's standing by her husband -- explaining, "my husband married a strong woman, and even at his weakest points today, I encouraged him to go play [on Sunday]!"

"I uplifted him and I told him as his friend were gonna get through this!!! As a result to all you hoes out there, never think for one second a man will never come crawling back to his wife. In most cases like mine, THE WIFE ALWAYS WINS."

Sources close to Camilla tell us she is adamant she NEVER tried to shake anyone down for money. She simply wants Donald to continue to support their daughter ... and that's it.

Chicago Bears Fan Attacks Jags Fan After Game ... Beatdown Ensues

10/17/2016 9:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

What happened when a smack talking Chicago Bears fan tried to fight a Jaguars fan after the game on Sunday?

Basically, the same thing that happened on the field. 

In some pretty insane footage shot while people were leaving the stadium, you can see a Bears fan in a Matt Forte jersey (weird since he's a Jet now) talking all sorts of crap to a Jags fan. 

When the Jags fan asks if he "gets down" -- the CHI fan socks him in the face. Brawl ensues. "Forte" gets kicked in the head. Crazy stuff. 

We called cops to find out if anyone got arrested and the short answer -- no. 

We're told police were contacted about a battery in progress that sounds like this particular fight -- but by the time they got to the area, they couldn't locate victims or witnesses. 

Cops say a battery victim did file a police report later that day -- but the report was so vague and "offered no details" ... so it's unclear if that guy was in this fight. 

The bigger question ... why are people fighting over teams with a combined 3 wins?

Exclusive Details

1017-dennis-byrd-GETTY-02There were no obvious signs the 17-year-old driver who crashed into NY Jets legend Dennis Byrd was drunk or texting at the time of the fatal crash ... law enforcement tells TMZ Sports

50-year-old Byrd was killed when a Ford Explorer slammed into his Hummer H2 at 11:16 AM in Oklahoma on Saturday. 

Cops say the driver of the Ford was a 17-year-old boy -- who had a 12-year-old passenger. Both boys were hospitalized in stable condition. 

Investigators believe the 17-year-old veered across his lane and into oncoming traffic -- colliding with Byrd's car ... and killing him. 

So, why did the car veer in the first place? 

Cops tell TMZ Sports there was nothing at the scene to lead police to believe the 17-year-old was drunk. However, blood was drawn and is being tested to see if there was anything in his system. 

We asked if the driver could have been distracted by his phone at the time of the crash -- we were told, "The driver's phone was off when officers arrived."

Cops are still investigating.

1012_tommy_ford_launchTommy Ford -- who famously played Tommy on the '90s sitcom "Martin" -- is on life support at an Atlanta hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen ... his wife tells TMZ

Ford has been hospitalized since Sunday and his health has declined ever since. 

He is currently on life support and is not expected to make it through the day. Ford's wife, Gina, says the family is still praying for him. 

Earlier, Ford's pal, Anthony Anderson, tweeted Ford had died -- but at the time, he was still alive. We're told Anthony had received inaccurate information, and merely tweeted in support of his friend. He's since deleted the tweet.

Tommy starred in all 5 seasons of "Martin" as Martin Lawrence's level-headed best friend, who often played straight man to Martin's crazy antics. 

He also appeared on "New York Undercover," "The Jamie Foxx Show" and "The Parkers."

Ford also wrote children's books that promoted drug-free and violence-free lifestyles. 


Donald Trump NBC Staff & 'Access' Brass Knew About Outtakes Months Ago

10/11/2016 5:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1011-donald-trump-billy-bush-nbc-tmz-02People at NBC knew about Donald Trump's crude convo with Billy Bush for at least 2 months ... because Billy was bragging about it back then.

TMZ has confirmed ... Billy was telling NBC staffers in Rio about the tape back in early August, when he was still working for "Access Hollywood." We're told word circulated because Billy made it clear Trump was trash-talking Nancy O'Dell.

NBC News says it didn't know about the outtakes until a week ago Monday, but the word around the network is people knew, including executives at 'Access,' which is an NBC property. We're told those executives had full knowledge of Billy's comments on the tape ... which creates a potential problem if NBC is serious about firing him.

We're told Bush's camp will argue they can't 86 him based on a "morality clause" because execs knew what he had said, and didn't discipline him at the time ... 11 years ago. 

As for whether the big NBC News honchos knew -- our sources don't know whether the info circulated to the top levels of the company, but Billy was "very open" about it.

1011-kim-kardashian-robbery-costume-COSTUMEISH-01The public has spoken, and does NOT want to see people dressed up as Kim Kardashian, bound and gagged by armed robbers for Halloween.

Costumeish founder Johnathon Weeks says the backlash was so severe by Tuesday afternoon, it became clear the Parisian Robbery Victim costume wasn't gonna fly. It's been yanked from his website. 

Weeks says this is the first time they've removed a costume from their online store -- and there have been plenty of borderline tasteless options in the past, including Cecil the Lion and crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford.

The move won't ruin Halloween for too many -- Weeks says he'll be fully refunding all SIX people who actually forked over the $69.99.


Paris Hilton I Got a New $8,000 Bitch

Exclusive Details

1011-paris-hilton-instagramPuppy love ain't cheap for Paris Hilton -- not when she's scooping up 12 ounces of chihuahua worth $8k ... very delicately, of course.

TMZ has learned the 4-month-old pup was delivered to Paris in NYC on Monday from a boutique teacup breeder.

Paris is a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to teacup pooches ... she spent $25k on two others  over a year ago, and bought a teacup Pomeranian in 2014 for $13k. So, if you're keeping score at home, that's about $46k on about 5 pounds worth o' dogs ... in 2 years.

We're told the new dog doesn't have a name yet. Paris is asking her followers to decide on social media, although she's partial to London or Ibiza. We're guessing China's off her short list.
