6/24/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cris "Cyborg" Justino ain't mincing her words ... telling TMZ Sports she would "kill" Ronda Rousey if they ever stepped in the Octagon.

The UFC superstar was at LAX when she made it clear -- she has a burning desire to fight Ronda because they have a "novella" together ... "and you have to finish a novella."

So, how would the novella end?

"I kill her," Cyborg says ... "I would put everything [she has said] about me in my hands."

We also asked about Miesha Tate -- who recently told TMZ Sports she'd definitely take a fight with Cyborg. 

Cyborg's reaction -- bring it on!

6/23/2016 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant took a victory lap after jurors sided with his legendary band in the battle over "Stairway to Heaven."

Plant and guitarist Jimmy Page testified in the trial where they were accused of ripping off part of the 'Stairway' guitar riff from the band Spirit -- but this was the first time we saw him outside court.

Just a few hours after the jury ruled in Zepp's favor on Thursday ... Plant headed to LAX and got the Led outta town. He wasn't real chatty, but made sure to show his appreciation for the court decision.

Heaven knows ... he's no Robin Thicke.

'Deadliest Catch' Captain Busted for Bad Pot ... Of the Crab Variety

6/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-sean-dwyer-discovery-01"Deadliest Catch" captain Sean Dwyer was in hot water after officials discovered his crab fishing gear wasn't up to par ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs ... Alaska's Fish & Game officials busted Dwyer for having a crab pot on the F/V Brenna A with an undersized escape mechanism. For you landlubbers -- crab pots must have an 18" hatch held closed by biodegradable ties. It's designed to give crabs a chance to escape pots that get lost at sea. 

We're told Dwyer's escape hole missed the mark by 3 inches. The fix only required one snip of twine, but it still cost him $1,500 in fines, and now he's on probation for 2 years.

Gotta mind your holes up in Alaska.

Dez hit up L.A. Fitness in Hollywood Thursday ... and hopped on the hoop court with a couple of his homeboys and straight GAVE WORK to the local actors (waiters) in the building.

Don't panic, Cowboy fans ... we're told Dez was taking it WAY easy ... just shooting jumpers and not driving into the paint AT ALL.

Jermaine Jackson Wife Files for Divorce

6/23/2016 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-jermaine-jackson-halima-rashid-tmz-getty-02Jermaine Jackson's wife is filing to divorce him and predictably ... she says the trouble started the day she got busted for attacking him.

Halima Rashid filed the divorce petition on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, and listing November 28, 2015 as the date of separation.

If that date sounds familiar it's because TMZ broke the story ... Halima was arrested for felony corporal injury that day. During a fight on Thanksgiving weekend, Jermaine allegedly spit on her and she allegedly bit him on the leg.

Halima is seeking spousal support. They got married in 2004, but don't have any kids together ... so no child support issues. She was wife #3 for Jermaine.

Her domestic violence case was tossed because prosecutors couldn't determine who was the aggressor in the fight.

Rep. Alan Grayson Pay Attention, Paul Ryan ... We'll Show You How to Do Your Job

6/23/2016 3:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wouldn't know how to run Congress if his job came with an instruction manual ... according to Florida Congressman Alan Grayson.

Grayson -- a Democrat participating in the sit-in for a gun control vote -- threw major shade at Ryan just after the political protest was suspended until legislators return in July.

We asked him about Ryan saying the Dems were just pulling a "publicity stunt," and that's when he went off.

Keep in mind, Grayson's constituency includes Orlando ... so his passion on the topic makes sense.

Rev. Jesse Jackson Gun Control Sit-In Is Just Like Civil Rights Fight

6/23/2016 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Jackson is not just applauding the Democratic sit-in ... he firmly believes it's picking up where the Civil Rights Movement left off in the '60s.

The Rev was on Capitol Hill Thursday morning -- before the demonstration was suspended -- when he explained why he thinks the Dems can't back down on demanding at least a vote on gun control legislation ... no matter how much backlash they get for it.

Jackson had NO problem with the sit-in participants singing "We Shall Overcome." Some critics think they belittled the importance of Civil Rights protests -- but Jackson says, "It's the same struggle led by the same people."

Chris Brown Manager Sues ... Chris Beat Me to a Pulp

EXCLUSIVE

0623-chris-brown-TMZ-02

Chris Brown has more legal woes ... the guy he hired to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating is now suing Chris for allegedly doing the same to him.

Mike G claims he was hired in 2012 not only to change Brown's image but to get him out of debt and off drugs. Mike G says he did well by Chris, who had a resurgence in popularity. 

Things allegedly turned bad last month, but Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER.

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking Mike G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he'd beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike G says Brown's rage was drug-fueled and the suit mention concern for retaliation from Brown's "gang member friends." 

Mike G's attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, "We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy."

11:00 AM PT: Chris just responded to the lawsuit in an Instagram video, claiming he fired Mike G for stealing money from him. Mike G's lawyer says that's not true and they will be adding a defamation claim to the lawsuit.
