NFL's Fletcher Cox Sued You Ruined My Marriage When You Banged My Wife!

11/22/2017 2:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Imagine finding out Philadelphia Eagles superstar Fletcher Cox nailed your smokin' hot wife and wanted her to have his baby.

Pretty cool if you're a die-hard Eagles fan ... not cool if you're North Carolina resident Joshua Jeffords.

Josh claims he's got hardcore proof that the 6'4", 310 pound defensive tackle seduced and banged his wife behind his back while she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania back in April.

Jeffords claims Cox continued the relationship via text messages -- which Josh now has -- and he says it's smoking gun proof that Cox is liable for "alienation of affection" ... which you can sue for in N.C.

According to North Carolina state law, to win an A.O.A. case, one must prove 3 things ... 

1) You and and your spouse had a genuine love and affection

2) The love and affection was alienated and destroyed

3) Malicious acts of a 3rd party produced the alienation of affection. Malicious is presumed if there's proof of sexual intercourse. 

In his lawsuit, filed on Nov. 22, Jeffords claims Cox sent her a photo of his penis on Snapchat and followed up with text messages telling her he wanted to knock her up.

He provided copies of the alleged texts that read, "I want to get you pregnant" and "I'm dead ass serious." Another text says, "You ain't gone be no damn single mom."

Jeffords says his marriage has completely crumbled -- his wife has blocked him on Instagram -- and he blames Fletcher for everything.

He's suing Fletcher for more than $25,000. 

We've called Cox's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC superstar Cris Cyborg’s got a secret weapon for her fight against Holly Holm -- boxing legend Mia St. John -- and TMZ Sports has footage of their intense sparring sesh. 

Cyborg and MSJ traded shots for four 2-minute rounds at the RVCA gym in L.A. ... and you can tell they were taking it seriously -- even though Cris and Mia agreed not to go full beast mode before they stepped into the ring.

St. John actually faced Holly in a 2005 pro boxing match ... and even though Mia lost, we're told she was sharing tips on how to beat Holm with Cyborg.

After the gloves came off, MSJ told us -- "If Cris lands one solid punch, it's over for Holly."

If you're wondering why these 2 got together ... Cyborg's hitting up Mia's charity event on mental health awareness next weekend. 

Pretty crazy to see these legends team up -- especially considering St. John recently called out Cris for a Playboy Mansion fight!

UFC's Frankie Edgar I Broke My Face ... And It Frickin' Sucks

11/22/2017 12:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Frankie Edgar says he's still bummed out after breaking a bone in his face ... but not 'cause it actually hurt or anything.

Frankie was lined up to fight featherweight champ Max Holloway at UFC 218 next weekend, but had to pull out a couple weeks ago after his orbital bone was cracked in a sparring sesh.

Edgar says the pain of missing his title shot is WAY worse than the pain from his broken eye bone. 

"It's not bad -- the timing's what makes it worse. As far as timing, what's on the line, it's one of the worst I've dealt with," he told TMZ Sports.

Frankie guarantees he'll get the gold when he's back to being healthy ... and in the meantime, he's keeping busy with charitable events -- like a Thanksgiving turkey giveaway put on by Eat Clean Bro in New Jersey.

Props to Edgar -- and HAPPY THANKSGIVING, EVERYONE!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Listen up, Lonzo Ball -- Chauncey Billups says he knows THE guy who can help you turn around your historically bad shooting ... and he might even hook y'all up if you ask nice.

"If I was Lonzo, I would call Kevin Martin -- a guy in our league who had like this funky shot but he could shoot the hell out of it," Chauncey told TMZ Sports.

Pretty good advice ... Martin used to be one of league's deadliest snipers and, more importantly, did his thing with a jumper that looks JUST LIKE Lonzo's.

So before you heed the haters and start shooting like all the normies -- "Try Kevin first." 

Too Short Put Your D*** Away, Fellas ... Our Heyday is Over!

11/22/2017 7:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Never thought we'd say this, but Too Short kinda sounds like a feminist when he's discussing the flood of sexual harassment allegations. Kinda.

We got Short at Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills where we asked him how guys can avoid becoming the target of sexual misconduct allegations. 

Surprisingly, the Bay Area rap legend -- whose favorite word, as we all know, is "biiiitch" -- says he's got a simple fix: let women take charge. On every front. Especially in the bedroom.

As Short eloquently puts it, "Fall the f*** back" fellas.

The Weinstein Company Netflix Cuts Ties for Golden Globes After-Party

11/22/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Netflix will be hosting its own after-party for 2018's Golden Globes Awards -- 'cause they've cut ties with longtime partner and co-host The Weinstein Company ... TMZ has learned.

Our Netflix sources tell us Netflix has opted to take TWC off the billing for their famous party after the awards ceremony in January -- and the allegations against its co-founder, Harvey Weinstein, have everything to do with it.

The Netflix-Weinstein after-party is one of the biggest shindigs during the Golden Globes -- they've been hosting it together for the past 3 years, and even held it at The Beverly Hilton in 2017.

TWC has been a prominent partner with the streaming service for a while now, having produced a handful of movies and shows for them -- including "Marco Polo" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend."

As for the upcoming bash ... we're told Netflix hasn't locked down a location yet for their after-party, but sources say they're eyeing the Waldorf Astoria in Bev Hills.

Sinbad on Russell Simmons If a Little Bit is True ... More Misconduct Claims to Come

11/22/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Russell Simmons better brace for a storm now that he's been accused of sexual assault ... because the trend, according to Sinbad, is for even more allegations to surface. 

The comedian told us in the current environment, none of the claims shock him ... even against the Def Jam honcho. Model Keri Claussen Khalighi claims Simmons assaulted her in 1991, while Brett Ratner watched.

While Simmons insists the encounter was consensual, Sinbad says there's reason for serious concern if any part of Khalighi's story is true.

His point -- if Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey or even Ratner have taught us anything ... Simmons is looking at the tip of the iceberg. 

Ray Lewis Sued Botched Bourbon Deal ... w/ Famous Racehorse

11/22/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The bourbon company bearing Ray Lewis' name is accused of putting the "stiff" in stiff drink -- allegedly bailing on a $50k sponsorship deal involving one of the most famous racehorses alive. 

The ex-NFL star is being sued -- along with the folks behind Ray's Reserve bourbon -- by Leverage Agency, which sells sponsorships at sports events. 

Long story short, the company behind Ray's Reserve allegedly agreed to pay $50k to sponsor California Chrome at the 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Race in Florida back in January. 

The deal was that RR would pay $25k in cash and $25k in Ray's Reserve bourbon -- 100 bottles at $250 apiece. 

FYI, California Chrome is a legend -- he won the 2014 Kentucky Derby and the 2014 Preakness. 

When race day came, California Chrome's famed jockey Victor Espinoza rocked pants with the Ray's Reserve logo on them ... as part of the deal.

But when Legacy sent the bill to the Ray's Reserve people, the company claims they never got the cash or the bourbon -- and now they're suing for the money. 

Ray's attorney tells TMZ Sports ... Ray had no involvement in the deal and has no ownership in the Ray's Reserve brand. He licensed his name for the product and nothing more. 

"There's no justification for Ray to be named personally in the lawsuit."

By the way, California Chrome finished 9th in that race and retired after the event. He's now working as a stud ... knocking up female horses for $40,000-a-pop. 

Xzibit Sues I Hired You to Pimp My Backyard ... Now It's All Screwed Up!!!

11/21/2017 4:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Xzibit and his wife are gunning for the guys they hired to build them a luxurious backyard oasis ... claiming they screwed it all up, and didn't even finish the job.

Xzibit says the folks at Edge Water Construction were supposed to install a brand new pool, outdoor spa, fire and water feature wine bar, backyard cabana and a bunch of other sweet items. Total cost was supposed to be $397k.

But according to a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Edge Water took much longer than initially scheduled to do the job ... and much of what they got done was defective. For instance, X-to-the-Z says the pool had sharp edges which cut his 8-year-old son's feet.

In the suit, he says parts of the pool and spa weren't properly waterproofed -- which seems like job #1 when building a pool.

Xzibit and the missus are suing for $250k. For its part, Edge Water tells us they only stopped working because Xzibit told them he wasn't going to pay them the $178k he still owed. They say he demanded to see their receipts, and when they refused he cut off the funding ... and they walked.

Edge Water says they stand by their work, and say an independent inspector also signed off on it.
