Scott Disick Finally Growing Up For 19-Yr-Old Sofia Richie

11/11/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

All Scott Disick needed to settle down and lay off the nightclub scene was the love of teenaged, yet very mature, Sofia Richie. Who knew??

Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ ... Scott's backed off his hard partying ways since he and 19-year-old Sofia started hanging out romantically a couple months ago. We're told 34-year-old Scott feels her age isn't an issue, because she's used to the spotlight after growing up with her father, Lionel.

Although they've traveled a ton in a short time -- Milan, Miami and Mexico -- they've been laying low wherever they go, hanging mostly in restaurants instead of clubs.

Scott's well aware of the change, telling friends ... Sofia's "been really good for me." And let's face it, this relationship's going way smoother than his previous with a 19-year-old -- no offense to Bella Thorne.

As for his other ex? Scott's accepted Kourtney Kardashian's moved on, and we're told he's happy to be doing the same. 

George Lopez Hollywood's an Evil Business

11/11/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez gives Hollywood low marks for the way it treats its own, but he gives Louis C.K. props for fessing up.

We got George at LAX Friday and he had strong feelings about the floodgates that have opened over the last 3 weeks.  

He's pretty cynical about the way Hollywood runs, but seems to think there is a path to redemption which begins with a mea culpa. That may not be the way Louis C.K. sees it ... he's been summarily fired from almost all of his projects. 

Ex-World Series MVP Josh Beckett Arrested After Alleged Country Band Attack

11/11/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-MLB star Josh Beckett was arrested after allegedly going full NFL linebacker on a country band ... completely laying out the singer and causing injuries, TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told the 37-year-old -- who won World Series MVP with the Marlins in 2003 -- was at an open mic night at a country club in Texas with some friends when he jumped on to the stage mid-performance and tackled the singer.

Cops were called to the scene and Beckett was arrested for public intoxication -- the officer said he determined Beckett was "a danger to himself and others."

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Beckett admitted to stage diving and said he hit his leg on the speaker during the incident. 

The worst part ... the singer of the band told cops he suffered serious injuries to his arm, neck and shoulder from the incident ... including a torn rotator cuff and dislocated shoulder. 

Cops say the incident is still under investigation.

Beckett's lawyer tells TMZ Josh claims it was an act of horseplay and he didn't mean to hurt him. He's apologized since the incident, and is trying to do what he can to make amends. 

Deontay Wilder Punks Anthony Joshua 'I Know You're Terrified'

11/11/2017 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Here's some menacing threats ... courtesy of Deontay Wilder

Wilder says he's on Anthony Joshua's ass in a big way -- doing everything in his power to make the heavyweight superfight happen ... soon!

So, what's holding it up? Wilder says he's convinced Joshua genuinely fears him -- and he's afraid Deontay could put such a savage beating on him, it could destroy his career. 

Wilder tries to make Joshua feel better ... but it only comes off as terrifying -- especially after that beating Deontay put on Bermane Stiverne last weekend (seriously ... it was scary).

Mike Huckabee Twitter's New 280 Limit Is Good For Trump ... And America, Too!

11/11/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Huckabee thinks America will only benefit from Donald Trump having more characters to defend himself on Twitter ... and sounds like Huckabee thinks it'll prevent another covfefe. 

We got the former Arkansas governor and two-time Republican presidential candidate at LAX Thursday and asked him about Twitter doubling its character limit from 140 to 280. 

According to Huckabee, who became an active supporter of Trump after suspending his 2016 run for president, it'll also help Trump's war -- and his daughter's --  with the media.

LiAngelo Ball Arrest Throws Huge Wrench In Reality Show Plans

11/11/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The LiAngelo Ball shoplifting arrest was NOT captured by the family's reality TV crew -- and now producers are debating whether to even cover the arrest on the show at all, TMZ Sports has learned. 

"Ball in the Family" producers initially sent cameras to China to document the family as they support LiAngelo during his first game with the UCLA basketball team. LaVar and LaMelo were also on the trip. It was supposed to be the usual zany Ball family drama. 

But we're told LiAngelo's trip to the Louis Vuitton store was NOT on the production schedule -- and there was no crew in tow when he (and two teammates) allegedly jacked expensive sunglasses

We're told the subsequent police raid on the team hotel -- which resulted in LiAngelo's arrest -- was also NOT captured by the reality show cameras. 

Instead, the TV crew followed LaVar and the rest of the family on several China outings -- from sightseeing to shoe promotions. 

Here's the problem ... LaVar has already reportedly gotten LiAngelo in deeper trouble by publicly downplaying the incident. He was reportedly told to shut his mouth and keep a low profile on the matter until the legal issue is resolved.  

So, to shoot ... or not to shoot? That is the question for the reality show. 

Obviously, producers know covering LiAngelo while he's being investigated would be reality gold -- but it could also send the wrong message to Chinese officials that he's not taking the matter seriously. 

One "Ball in the Family" source says show honchos are still trying to come up with a plan -- "It's too early to say how, or if, the incident will be covered in the show."

If LiAngelo is convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison -- or as little as 20 days under house arrest in the team's luxury hotel. 

Stay tuned ... 

Mick Foley Ric Flair Was Sex 'Superhuman' ... But His #s Might Be Off

11/11/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

WWE legend Mick Foley says Ric Flair had a "superhuman" sex drive back in the day -- but he still ain't sold on the Nature Boy's claims of spankin' it twice a day AND bangin' 10,000 chicks!!

Foley -- who's hilarious, BTW -- told TMZ Sports his boy, Naitch, was a God among men when it came to wrestling and womanizing ... but even then, the numbers might not add up.

"I'm doing the math in my head ... that's (10,000) in addition to snappin' off 2 a day for 30 years? I'm sure it's in the high 5 -- well, I don't know!"

Mick told us his number's A LOT lower ... and advises WWE's new blood to keep their count closer to his than Ric's -- 'cause there's only 1 "Space Mountain."

WOOOOO!!!

Rapper Joell Ortiz Jameis Out, Fitz In?? 'Free Win' for the Jets!!!

11/11/2017 12:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Slaughterhouse rapper Joell Ortiz thinks Ryan Fitzpatrick sucks sooo bad, when we told him Fitz was getting the start vs. his Jets this Sunday, this was his reaction ... 

"I WILL TAKE THE FREE WIN!!!" 

Joell tells TMZ Sports he didn't even like Fitz when he was low-key ballin' for NY ... so he can't wait to watch the destruction, now that a Jameis Winston injury is forcing the QB under center for the Bucs.

But that ain't all -- J.O. and his bro really know the NFL ... and bust out some hilarious real talk on Colin Kaepernick, the Patriots and more. 

Louis C.K. Said Right Things, But Failed Women ... Says 'OITNB' Star

11/10/2017 5:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Louis C.K. deserves to lose everything he's lost professionally, because no one should be rewarded for sexual assault ... according to "Orange Is The New Black" star, Lea DeLaria.

We got Lea at LAX Friday and asked her about the huge backlash C.K.'s faced since 5 women accused him of sexual misconduct ... to which he's since confessed. Lea says while he seemed to be "one of the good guys" who supported women in comedy -- C.K.'s behavior reveals something much darker.

He's been dropped by his management and publicist, lost his Netflix and FX deals, and had his movie release canceled.

You can tell Lea desperately wants to say something positive about Louis -- but ultimately has to admit it's nearly impossible now.

'Little Women: LA' Star Breaks Up with Cheating Husband

11/10/2017 3:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee was fed up with her hubby's cheating ways, so she's finally called it quits ... TMZ has learned.

A source connected to the former couple tells us Briana broke up with Matt Grundhoffer last month because there was no way of resuscitating their 3-year marriage. We're told they found it impossible to bounce back from Matt's constant cheating and flirting -- some of which was seen on the show.

Matt copped to straying at times, and it sparked multiple fights.

Now, the hard part. Briana and Matt have a 16-month-old son together, and 2 kids from previous relationships. They're still living together while they figure out new arrangements, but they sleep in separate rooms.

We're told there's zero chance of reconciliation, and divorce is looming.

French Montana Bday Party Gets Real Wild ... Cops Called for Chick Fight

EXCLUSIVE

French Montana's birthday celebration was interrupted by 2 women going off on each other, which prompted a visit from cops ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... the rapper took the party -- which started in Bev Hills Thursday night -- back to his Calabasas crib early Friday morning, and that's where the fight went down. We're told around 7 AM the women got into a fight ... one of them got booted, and then decided to call the po-po.

Cops and paramedics showed up, the women were evaluated but neither needed medical treatment. However, we're told booze was clearly involved. In the end ... no arrests and both women had to leave the property. Law enforcement say they had no interaction with French.

As we reported ... French had a star-studded 33rd birthday bash at a mansion Thursday night.

Conor McGregor Slaps MMA Official, Pushes Ref In Crazy Post-Fight Scene

11/10/2017 12:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor just went NUCLEAR at an MMA event in Dublin ... slapping a regulatory official and pushing veteran UFC referee Marc Goddard for breaking up his post-fight celebration with training partner Charlie Ward.

It all went down after Ward won by 1st-round KO at Bellator 187 -- which prompted McGregor to jump into the cage to show his SBG Ireland teammate some love. 

One problem -- Conor wasn't allowed in the cage since he wasn't a licensed cornerman for Charlie ... so Goddard and several fight officials stepped in to interrupt their bro moment. 

McGregor was PISSED -- pushing Goddard from behind and getting in his face ... before the officials and BFF Artem Lobov escorted him from the cage.

But Conor wasn't done. He came back, climbed back on top of the cage and straight slapped one of the officials upside the head.

FYI, Goddard ordered McGregor to leave cageside last time Lobov fought in the UFC ... so that's probably what set Conor off.

Still ... gotta think there's gonna be hell to pay for his actions.

Reggie Bush 'Comfortable' Not Playing in NFL But If Cowboys Call ...

11/10/2017 9:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

With Ezekiel Elliott expected to FINALLY serve his 6-game suspension (maybe) -- the Dallas Cowboys could be in the market for a running back ... so .... enter Reggie Bush??

Maybe not ... 

The 32-year-old says he's really comfortable NOT playing right now -- even though he's still training -- and it wouldn't be an automatic "Yes" if Jerry Jones came calling. 

Of course, the twist to the whole thing is Reggie told us back in Sept. he'd retire if he doesn't get picked up this season. So ... seems like we may have seen the last of Bush in the league.
