Herschel Walker Leonard Fournette Should NOT Sit Out ... Bad Look for NFL Scouts

9/26/2016 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

With Les Miles gone and LSU in disarray ... Leonard Fournette has a choice to make -- sit out for the rest of the year or play and risk injury for no real shot at a championship. 

We asked Herschel Walker what he thinks the LSU running back should do -- especially since Fournette is a projected 1st round pick with millions of dollars on the line. 

Walker is pretty adamant Fournette should suit up and play ... not just because his teammates are counting on him -- but also because it would send a bad message to possible NFL suitors. 

Beanie Sigel Knocked Out Backstage ... Meek's Homie Takes Credit

9/26/2016 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill and The Game's beef claimed a new victim -- hip-hop legend Beanie Sigel, who got knocked the hell out ... apparently by a guy in Meek's crew.

TMZ got this video of Beanie laid out backstage ... shortly before he was getting onstage Saturday night for Diddy's Bad Boy Family concert in Philly. You can also see a guy getting dragged out of the area ... his name is Teefy Bey, and he's a member of Meek's Dreamchasers.

Teefy's copped to throwing the KO punch, and claims Beanie had to go down because he broke the "code of ethics on the street." He doesn't get more specific.

***WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE***

It's weird because Beanie rapped WITH Meek last week on his Game diss track, "Ooouuu." Of course, he's since claimed to have written the whole thing, including Meek's verses.

In any event, Beanie still managed to perform in Philly after the knockout, and took a thinly veiled shot at Meek and co.

Cowboys Legend Drew Pearson I Love Dak Prescott ... But This Is Romo's Team

EXCLUSIVE

0926-tony-romo-drew-pearson-dak-prescott-GETTY-01Dak Prescott is good ... but Tony Romo is GREAT and Dallas will be even BETTER when he returns to the field ... so says Cowboys legend Drew Pearson

TMZ Sports spoke to the Super Bowl XII champ who tells us why he doesn't think Romo should/will lose his starting job to the rookie ... despite the fact he's been playing pretty damn well. 

"This organization really believes in Tony. What Dak is doing right now, Romo will do even better."

In fact, Pearson says Dak's impressive play is taking a huge weight off Romo's shoulders -- allowing him time to fully heal from his injury so he can return at 100%.

"When he gets back, he’ll get to prove he can perform at the same level or better than before his injury."

"There’s an old saying Coach Landry used ... and it’s that a starter doesn’t lose his job due to injury. When he gets back, he’ll get to prove he can perform at the same level or better than before his injury. It’s your job when you come back as long as you can perform at the same level."

9/26/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0926_Nikki-Williams_instagram-2Nic Cage's former daughter-in-law wants a pound o' flesh from her manager ... after he pressured her into having a breast reduction.

Singer Nikki Williams -- who was married to Weston Cage for 2 years -- says Chameleon Entertainment CEO Breyon Prescott totally derailed her career and was verbally abusive ... according to a lawsuit she just filed.

You'll recall Brandy sued Chameleon back in July for broken promises, among other things.

We've reached out to Prescott, so far no word back.

Michael Rapaport 'I Hope D-Rose Is Innocent' ... I Want To Root For Him

9/26/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Can you root for a guy who's been accused of rape? 

That's the question we asked NY Knicks superfan Michael Rapaport ... who will have to make that decision when Derrick Rose takes the court in October. 

Rapaport gives a pretty thoughtful answer -- and explains why it's important for people to remember that Rose is supposed to be presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law. 

"Hopefully, he didn’t do these things and these accusations go away."

Chyna Mom Wants Estate Control ... Manager Can't Be Trusted!!

9/26/2016 12:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_Chyna_tmzChyna's business manager took control of the late pro wrestler's stuff -- including a $5,000 cello -- and there's no telling what he's doing with her other valuables ... so claims Chyna's mom.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Chyna's mother is asking the court to give her power to handle her daughter's estate and to keep her "purported friend" and manager, Anthony Anzaldo, at bay.

Chyna's mom claims Anzaldo is meddling in her daughter's affairs with no right to do so. She also thinks Chyna should still be collecting royalties from over 100 film and TV credits, but Anzaldo is making it impossible for her to follow the money trail.

Mom not only wants to control the estate, but she's asking the court to block Anzaldo from "usurping" her efforts.

We reached out to Anzaldo ... so far, no word back.

9/26/2016 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Super Bowl champ Deion Branch says Louisville's Lamar Jackson has a whole lot more football domination in his future ... as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

Jackson continued to make the rest of the college football world look silly this past weekend ... racking up another 7 touchdowns as his squad put the hurt on Marshall.

We talked with Branch ... who was a star for the Cardinals when Jackson was in pre-school ... and he told us he's convinced NFL defenses will one day get the same treatment.

"I like what I see from him as a quarterback ... he's showing flashes ... there's a lot of potential there."

Branch ain't just spitballin' folks ... he told us he's talked to Jackson personally and thinks not only are the physical tools there ... but the mental makeup as well.

"After the Florida State game we had a long conversation ... listened to everything I said ... he's a sponge."

Jose Fernandez Hit Miami Party Spot 90 Minutes Before Crash

9/26/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0925-jose-fernandez-gettyJose Fernandez was at a popular Miami waterfront party spot at least 90 minutes before his fatal boat crash ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Multiple sources have told us ... Fernandez and at least one other person who was killed in the crash was at American Social Bar & Kitchen around 2 AM on Sunday morning.

When asked for specifics about what happened inside -- including whether alcohol was served to Jose or his friends -- a rep for the restaurant would only say, "Jose Fernandez was a guest at American Social."

The restaurant, which has a dock for boaters to pull up, is located a short distance from where the crash occurred. The boat was discovered by the coast guard at 3:30 AM. Investigators believe the boat was traveling at full speed when it crashed into a jetty

Officials have said at this point it does not appear alcohol was a factor in the crash -- but it appears that statement was based on a lack of visual evidence such as liquor bottles or beer cans. Toxicology results are pending

'7th Heaven' Star Catherine Hicks Down for Reunion Show But Only If the Pastor's Dead!

9/26/2016 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"7th Heaven" star Catherine Hicks had a slip of the tongue that revealed exactly how she feels about her former co-star, Stephen Collins, these days.

We caught up with Catherine and asked if we'll ever see a reboot of the show, a la "Fuller House." Check out the vid ... Catherine -- who played Collins' wife -- has big plans for his character, Rev. Camden.

Just a guess, but her vision for the opening scene probably has a lot to do with Collins confessing to child molestation.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie The Prenup is Clear Splitting Properties No Biggie ... But Kids Will Be

9/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923_bragelina_prenup_compositeBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not going to have big financial issues, because they were only married for 2 years and they might have been expecting a divorce since day 1 ... 'cause they have a prenup spelling out exactly who gets what ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us their prenuptial agreement is ironclad and details the specifics of their combined fortune ... a reported $400 mil.

Brangelina have 12 total properties together ... all of which they snatched up either before they were married or before they were even dating. 7 of those belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the knot in 2014.

It's unclear who exactly shelled out what for those 3 properties, which include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans and an apartment in NY ... but we're told the prenup makes divvying all that up simple. 

Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, we're told CUSTODY of their kids will be where the war really plays out. 

As we reported ... Brad plans to fight for joint physical custody of their 6 children.
