2/4/2016 3:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-johnny-manziel-TMZ-01Johnny Manziel tells TMZ Sports ... he did NOT strike his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley during a January 30th dispute saying bluntly, "It didn't happen."

When asked about the police report which says he allegedly threatened to kill himself during the dispute, Johnny denied that too ... adding, "I'm completely stable. I'm safe and secure."

It's interesting ... according to the police reports, as cops interviewed Colleen at her home she became irritated with the officer's questions and became "increasingly uncooperative."  She also refused to allow cops to photograph her alleged injuries. 

Johnny added, "I have great things coming ahead" ... though he didn't expand on what those things are. 

"I know I've been having fun but I just need to get my body right."

"I'm 100% committed to playing football."

2/4/2016 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-lauren-conrad-tmz-01"The Hills" star Lauren Conrad is guilty of jacking 2 surfing dogs for use on her website ... according to a new lawsuit.

Okay, LC didn't walk off with the actual pups -- Incredible Features Inc. says she merely stole 2 photos of the athletic pets, and slapped them up on her website. 

As lawsuits go, it's a pretty entertaining read. IFI says, "In the dog eat dog world of online content ... Lauren Conrad, a sophisticated website operator, is cognizant of the value of high-quality photography." IFI says it owns the images that are now on her site.

0204_lauren_conrad_dog_subThe suit points out Lauren's site isn't a blog but a "commercial enterprise through which Conrad shills her Kohl's clothing line amongst other things." 

Kohl's cheap shot aside -- IFI wants Lauren to take down the images, and it wants any profits she earned on the dogs' backs. We've reached out to LC ... no word back yet.

Rose McGowan is pulling the plug on her marriage ... filing for divorce.

According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Rose cites the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending her 2  year marriage to David Leavitt, who works as a visual artist.

Diddy New Story He Killed Tupac Sounds Like Old, Bogus Claim

2/4/2016 3:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-diddy-tupac-tmz-01New stories are circulating that Diddy was out to kill Tupac Shakur. Well, a similar story was published in a big newspaper years ago ... and the paper was forced to eat crow and retract it.  

There's a film Netflix is about to release based on a book with the premise ... Diddy hired hit men to murder Tupac in 1996. The author of the book -- a retired LAPD investigator -- claims Diddy hired a Crip to kill Tupac for $1 million. 

Turns out the L.A. Times published a similar story in 2008, claiming 2 years before the murder Diddy's boys shot Tupac 5 times in NYC outside a recording studio, but failed to kill him. The paper relied on FBI files and Diddy's own people as sources.   

The Times published a major retraction, saying, "The Times has since concluded that the FBI reports were fabricated and that some of the other sources relied on -- including ... a 'confidential source' cited in the FBI reports do not support major elements of the story."

The paper concluded it believed the story was no longer credible.

As for the documentary, which purports to chronicle the 1996 murder in Vegas, the author relies on a confession from a Crip gang member, who said Diddy hired him to kill Tupac.  

Diddy has denied involvement in both the '94 shooting and the '96 murder.
