Exclusive Details

Memphis Grizzlies small forward Chandler Parsons' new Bel-Air crib has a pool, 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and an outdoor fire pit but it doesn't look like he'll be getting any practice shots in at home.

Parsons, who's been linked to Hailey Baldwin and Bella Thorne, just dropped $11 million on a beautiful, open air Bel-Air home. He kinda made off with a deal on the place ... the original asking price was $13.3 million.

While it doesn't have a hoop ... he'll still get a workout in just walking around the place ... it's 9,100 square feet! It also has a full service bar which will require a different kind of stamina.

Farrah Aldjufrie and Melissa Platt from The Agency worked with Chandler on the purchase.

BALLLLLLLLLLLIN'!!!!!

Magic Johnson has upgraded in a big way ... going from a $500k-per-week yacht to a $700k-per-week yacht -- and he's about to complete his 3RD WEEK on the floating mansion.

It's 73 meters long -- has a movie theater, gym, dining room, hot tub, helicopter pad, an elevator ... and, of course, WiFi.

Ezekiel Accuser to Cops: 'He Busted the Side of my Jaw' ... RB Claims She's Lying

8/15/2017 9:29 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Ezekiel Elliott's accuser told police the NFL running back got extremely violent with her on multiple occasions -- including one instance where he "lost control" and busted the side of her jaw -- but Zeke says she's straight-up lying and he can prove it. 

The woman lays it out during a recorded 2016 interview with police in the wake of her domestic violence accusations against the football star. 

At the beginning of the interview, the woman is asked if there is a history of abuse or violence -- to which she responds: 

"He has lost control and yanked me into the wall, busted the side of my jaw ... my face is swollen and a little bit bruised. And then I did have thumbprint marks on my hand."

The accuser doesn't specify the exact dates of the alleged abuse -- but she notes that she had filed a previous police report against Zeke over an incident in February 2016. 

During the 20 minute interview, the accuser, Tiffany Thompson, also gets into detail about the July 16, 2016 incident

Thompson says Elliott got violent with her when she asked why other women were blowing up his phone early in the morning.

She claims Zeke cussed her out, dragged her out of bed and choked her.  

Thompson also claims Zeke clenched his fist to hit her in the face -- but stopped himself when she began to cry. She claims Elliott apologized. 

We reached out to Elliott's camp and a rep told us, "All we can say at this time is that Mr. Elliott’s appeal of the NFL’s decision will not only completely refute these false allegations but also shed light on the accuser’s lack of credibility and true motives so much that it will place the NFL's entire findings into question and jeopardize the integrity of the decision."

The reps noted the interview is over a year old and was taken by the Columbus Prosecutor’s office which ultimately did not charge Elliott with a crime.

Julianne Hough's frequent-flier status must be through the roof ... she just surfaced in Alaska a couple weeks after her African honeymoon.

Hough ditched her new hubby, Brooks Laich, for this vacay, instead hopping aboard a Celebrity Cruise with a bunch of high school pals, a trip that she said had been 11 years in the making.

Must've been nice because we're told they got hooked up in an 1800 square foot room on the Celebrity Solstice that came with 2 bedrooms, grand piano and what we can only imagine were sick views of glaciers.

The suite sets the average person back about $10,200 for the week long trip.

Don't think the Timbs or the flannel came with the room.

Tennis Star Victoria Azarenka Custody War Forcing Me to Skip US Open

8/11/2017 12:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tennis superstar Victoria Azerenka is furious a judge has given her a real-life Sophie's choice  -- tennis or her kid -- that is making her drop out the US open. 

The former #1 player in the world is locked in a nasty dispute with Billy McKeague -- the father of her 8-month-old son, Leo. The two split back in July.

Here's the problem ... McKeague filed custody papers in L.A. (where Victoria has a home) and the case has gone to a judge who told Azerenka she's not allowed to take the child out of California while the custody trial rages ... and it's not going to end until October at the earliest. 

The dilemma -- the US Open kicks off August 28 in New York. Victoria will not leave her child -- whom she's been breastfeeding until a month ago -- with McKeague because she doesn't believe he's capable of caring for the kid.  

Her attorney, "Disso Queen" Laura Wasser, told the judge her client is more than willing to buy a plane ticket for McKeague and put him up in a hotel for the 2-week tournament, but the judge said no.

Wasser also told the judge her client already has a valid custody order from Belarus, the country where Victoria, Leo and and Billy are all residents, so it should be game, set, match. But for some reason the judge won't defer to the Belarus court.
