Drake Former Producer is Just Swell

6/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-detail-injuries-tmz-02Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ... according to the guy on the receiving end.

We got these pics of the injuries of producer/rapper Detail, who claims the bruises were inflicted at the hands of Drake's security guard.

We're told the injuries were so bad he was hospitalized for days ... with a broken jaw and other injuries that required several surgeries.

As we reported, Detail claims Drake invited him to his home back in 2014 on the pretext of working on a project, but it was really an ambush. Detail says Drake was pissed he wouldn't work exclusively with the Canadian rapper.

Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year, and he asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses. When Drake refused, Detail had lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, file a lawsuit.

Our sources say Detail's camp is worried Drake's crew may be in L.A. for this weekend's BET Awards, and they're scared of more retaliation.

Shaquille O'Neal has changed his mind -- and officially given the green light for a bunch of his kids to star in a brand new reality show ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

It's been a work in progress for years. Our sources say Shaq was initially a little chilly on the idea -- but things have changed, and we're told the NBA legend has officially given his blessing for the VH1 show. 

The show will feature Shaq's 4 kids with ex-wife Shaunie -- along with her child from a previous relationship and will primarily focus on the kids trying to forge their way into various careers. One of the kids wants to be a comedian. Another is interested in music. 

And, of course, 17-year-old Shareef O'Neal is a top high school basketball player who's being recruited by some of the best colleges in the country. We're told the recruiting process will be featured on the show.

Plus, the baller stuff like Shaqir's insane celeb-packed 13th birthday will also be on the show. 

Caaaaan youuuuu digggg itttt?!?! 

Mary J. Blige NJ Hit Me Up For Another $166k

6/26/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-mary-j-blige-tmzOn one hand, Mary J. Blige is making progress in the tax lien dept -- her tabs are getting lower, but on the other hand ... she still has to pay 'em. 

The state of NJ dropped a new lien on MJB to the tune of $166,292.77.

This one's way more manageable than her past tax debts. She settled a lien for $900k with Jersey in 2014, but appears to still be on the hook for a $3.4 million tab with the IRS.

Bottom line: the tax man's keeping a close eye on Mary's money.

Young Dro No Jail Time For 'Borrowed' Car

6/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-young-dro-tmz-01Young Dro was staring down up to 10 years in prison for stealing a friend's car, but caught a huge break when the judge handed him 3 years probation.

The "F.D.B." rapper pled guilty in May to one count of theft by conversion ... thereby scoring probation instead of incarceration.

The case was pretty absurd ... Dro said he borrowed a friend's car and promised to pick her up after she was done with her shift at the Pink Pony strip club in ATL. He never showed, but cops found the car later with marijuana and a stolen gun in it.

In addition to probation, Dro also has to pay a $1,000 fine.

TMZ Sports content quiz ... would you rather hear a harrowing story of sports glory from one of the most feared athletes of his generation?

Or ... do you wanna hear about the time Verne Troyer made a single tackle in a full-contact football game against a guy (obviously) three times his size.

We thought so ...

Verne was out at LAX when the subject of football came up and he broke the epic news to us that he's not just a fan of the game ... he used to be a player!!

Check out the clip -- and remember, dynamite comes in small packages.

BET Awards Weekend LAPD On Alert for Sizzurp Sippin'

6/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624_lapd_training-for-lean_composite_gettyThe LAPD officers just got schooled on sizzurp, aka lean ... but the department swears there's nothing racial about it.

Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD brass has held meetings with cops to go over the basics when it comes to codeine. We're told they've been briefed on how users mix the syrup, how it looks, smells and most importantly ... to be on the lookout for double cups. 

The brass insisted it has nothing to do with this weekend's BET Awards show ... which will draw scores of rappers. They say cops will not specially hunt for double cups ... but officers will arrest anyone if they happen to notice during normal patrol.

Interestingly ... one of the LAPD divisions where a meeting was held was near the BET venue in downtown L.A. But the Hollywood Division didn't have such a meeting, and that's where lots of the after-parties will go down. We're told Hollywood cops already know what's up.

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Lachey's all about Encino, man ... he dropped millions for a new crib just days after unloading a pad in the same neighborhood.

Lachey forked over $4.15 million for the 7 bedroom, 10 bath home that belonged to the late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera. Nick and wife Vanessa will have plenty of room to spread out ... nearly 10,000 square feet on 4 acres. 

Lucky for Nick, he had some cash on hand after selling his old crib for $3.995 million earlier this month.

Farrah Aldjufrie from The Agency sealed the deal for Nick. The agent for Jenny's estate was Sebastian Wolski, managing partner of the Ryan Serhant Team Los Angeles. 

And how's this for a nice touch ... Nick and Vanessa wrote a letter to Rivera's family, thanking them for the home.

Herschel Walker Blackballed By Trump Haters ... Axed From Speaking Events

6/25/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Herschel Walker says he's paying the price for supporting Donald Trump -- telling TMZ Sports he's been dropped from multiple speaking engagements for publicly backing the GOP candidate. 

Walker was one of Trump's first big celebrity endorsers -- praising his former "Celebrity Apprentice" boss as a brilliant man who will truly make America great again. 

But after he went public, Walker says he started getting axed from speaking gigs -- most recently getting canceled from an event in California because organizers were afraid Walker would attract anti-Trump protesters. 

Walker wouldn't name the groups who 86'd him -- but says it's happened at least 3 times in various states. 

In fact, he spoke about the situation this week on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1. 

Despite the backlash, Walker says he will NOT stop supporting Trump -- insisting he's the best man for the job.

Team USA soccer goddess Christen Press says she LOVES the way her nude pics turned out in ESPN's Body Issue -- but says her bun-bearing days are over ... even if Playboy calls.

We got the World Cup champ out at LAX -- where she told us why she decided to bare all for the mag. 

Everyone is raving about Christen's physique -- and the pictures spread on social media like wildfire. So, we had to ask ... what did your parents think?

Check out the video -- Christen's super nice and super honest ... and super hot.

NFL's Pouncey Bros Miami Strippers CRUSH Pittsburgh ... Here's Why

6/25/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Anyone debating the quality of booty clubs in Miami & Pittsburgh LISTEN UP ... the NFL's Pouncey Twins are about to tell you why ass shakers in south Florida SLAY the girls in Steel City.

We got Maurkice and Mike out at LAX and asked the pair which city had a leg up (or two) as far as the beautiful ladies of the pole & and stage are concerned.

Remember ... Maurkice plays in Pittsburgh, and Mike balls down in Miami -- so we're thinking these two might have a little insight on how things go down.

The twins don't hesitate in tapping Miami as the go-to spot for twerk art ... but the reason why will leave you saying "Hey, that makes a lot of sense."

BTW -- The guys say they weren't aware they'd flown into L.A. on the greatest strip club weekend of the year ... but when we told them they had ... they didn't complain about it.
