NFL's Jonathan Martin Had Gun in Possession When Detained by Cops

2/25/2018 6:24 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A disturbing new twist in the Jonathan Martin saga ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports the ex-NFL lineman had a gun in his possession when he was detained by police. 

As we previously reported ... cops tracked down the former Miami Dolphins player Friday after he posted a photo on IG showing a shotgun and ammo -- along with a threatening message and the names of former teammates and high school acquaintances. 

We're told cops believe Martin had recently purchased two weapons -- one of which matched up with the gun in the IG post. Sources tell us when they found him on Friday, he had a gun in his car that fit the description police had. 

Multiple sources also tell TMZ Sports Martin is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

Of course, Martin was at the center of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal in 2013, and had accused multiple teammates of physically and emotionally abusing him. 

The teammates, including Richie Incognito, have always maintained it was routine hazing and nothing more. Incognito had previously expressed concern about Martin's long-term mental health.

EXCLUSIVE

1:45 PM PT -- Turns out Kanye wasn't peeing after all. Sources tell us he was faking for the cameras.Kim Kardashian got a good laugh from her husband ... and Kanye West got instant relief as he handled his biz wiz. 

Kim and Kanye had just arrived Sunday at a warehouse in L.A. when he answered nature's call -- outside the building. Kim, rocking a new pink 'do, turned around and appeared to burst into laughter at Kanye's desperate need to pee.

Y'know this was an emergency, because the couple was fully aware of the paparazzi. Then again ... we haven't seen video, so it's possible 'Ye was just clowning for the cameras and not actually urinating. Either way, Kim was entertained by his antics.

When ya gotta go ...

Chrissy Teigen My Potatoes Made it Through TSA ... But Not in a Casserole Dish

2/25/2018 10:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chrissy Teigen called an audible on an airport carry-on that paid off big time -- 'cause she was able to bring scalloped potatoes onto her flight without security gettin' fussy. 

We got Chrissy heading into LAX Saturday, where just hours before she'd tweeted a very important question at American Airlines ... is ceramic all good with TSA?

Luckily, both AA and TSA hit her back letting her know the potatoes were fine in her originally intended casserole dish ... but it sounds like she switched up the container last minute.  

Maybe she wanted to play it safe with some good ol' fashioned plastic. Whatever the reason ... the grub got the all-clear, as she quickly pointed out on social media.

Chrissy did ditch a snack beforehand, though -- pawning off some cookies on a photog before walking inside. Better safe than sorry ... you can't press your luck with this stuff.

Justin Bieber Downsizes With New $17.9 Million WeHo Rental

2/25/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

For most Justin Bieber's new modern crib would be a dream come true, but by Bieber's standards it's a shell of his last place.

The Biebs just secured a new rental ... a $17.9 million crib in West Hollywood above the Sunset Strip. At 6,000 square feet and 3 bedrooms, it's almost half the size of his last pad in Bev Hills, which was a 8,600 square foot, 6 bedroom bachelor pad.

There's a movie theater and the infinity pool looks out on an incredible view of L.A., but the coolest feature has to be the master closet, which looks like it was inspired by a DJ's booth.

The last place set Bieber back $55k a month. Sources say he is shelling around the same for his new digs.

"I love him because he's outspoken," Graham told TMZ Sports

"He's an outspoken guy and that's what you gotta be. Gotta speak your mind."

Dennis wasn't done there ...  telling us that LaVar wilin' out on the Lakers, UCLA, Trump and anyone else in his warpath is exactly what he should be doing! 

"People have been kissing butts for too long ... he doesn't do that."

Wonder if Drake feels the same way ...

2/25/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Reggaeton star J Balvin added a lot of flash to his smile ... or at least half of it, because his bottom teeth are blingin' like crazy now.

The "Mi Gente" singer hooked up with celeb jeweler Mr. Flawless to commission a perfect grill ... which we're told set him back $15k! And that's just for half of his pearly whites.

The shiny grill is packed with 7 carats of diamonds -- all VVS grade, of course. What else would you expect from a guy known for his sense of style.

J Balvin's one of the hottest artists in reggaeton and Latin music, best known here in the States for his recent hit remixes with Beyonce and Justin Bieber.

He also survived a plane crash in 2016. Based on his chart success, and his pricey new mouth piece ... we'd say someone's living right and large.

UFC's Brendan Schaub Floyd's Done ... But 'I Guarantee' Conor Fights Nate

2/25/2018 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says a Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather rematch in the UFC is MORE likely than Conor vs. Nate Diaz 3 ... but ex-UFC star Brendan Schaub is calling BS. 

We got Brendan -- an analyst on the MayMac media tour -- to break down what's next for the biggest names in fighting, starting with the rumors that Floyd might step inside the Octagon.

"I don't see Floyd doing that with his ego and his legacy -- it'd be a terrible idea," Schaub told TMZ Sports. "Only one of those guys is gonna fight again, and that's Conor McGregor."

So ... what's next for McGregor?

"Conor's waiting to see what happens with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson ... he's gonna see who wins and how it goes and he'll decide either that, or Nate Diaz."

But no matter which fight Conor takes first -- "I can guarantee you he fights Nate Diaz at some point."

If ya want more proof, Brendan's talk show "Below the Belt" launches next week on Showtime ... and Floyd's gonna be one of his first guests!! 

Soap Star Winsor Harmon The Bold and the Bladder Full ... Arrested for Drunk in Public

2/25/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

This one's bold, but it ain't beautiful -- Winsor Harmon was arrested after allegedly getting loaded in his car and peeing in front of a live audience ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us the famous soap star -- who starred in "The Bold and the Beautiful" as Thorne Forrester for two decades -- was arrested last week in the San Fernando Valley after eyewitnesses allegedly saw him urinating at a park in broad daylight.

We're told cops were called to the scene and Harmon was found inside his SUV in the parking lot -- where officers saw empty wine bottles scattered about ... and Harmon without a pair of pants on. Sources say he admitted he'd stayed there overnight. 

Cops arrested him for being drunk in public. 

It's interesting ... Harmon had his iconic role as Forrester recast last year with actor Ingo Rademacher. Makes ya wonder if the soap woes seeped into reality.

We've reached out to Harmon for comment ... so far, no word back. Say it isn't so, Thorne!

EXCLUSIVE

Here's video of Sugar Ray Leonard and Bruce Buffer giving daps at LAX ... then giving waaay different takes on how Floyd Mayweather would do against Conor McGregor in the UFC!

The meet-up happened courtesy of our photog -- who spotted the 2 legends randomly crossing paths. (Only in L.A., right??)

Sugar, of course, wasn't about to throw his fellow pugilist under the bus -- saying Floyd's "always" got a shot.

Bruce, on the other hand, was happy to -- telling us why it'd be "a very quick night" for Mayweather inside the Octagon.

But no matter who ya side with, we can all agree on one thing -- Buff and Sugar bro'ing out is pretty great.

'Seven Seconds' Star Race Relations More Tense in U.S. than England

2/25/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Clare-Hope Ashitey -- star of the new Netflix drama "Seven Seconds" -- is addressing the issue of race in America ... by pointing out the vast differences between the U.S. and her homeland.

We got the English actress at LAX Friday, and she tells us the racial atmosphere here makes her feel more uncomfortable and tense than she does back home ... and she has a few ideas why.

Clare admits things are far from perfect across the pond, but she thinks her people have more empathy and, more significantly, she claims they aren't still recovering from the "gaping wound" that is America's history of slavery.

The actress also brings up another hot-button issue -- guns -- specifically regarding police, as another key factor.

The good news -- Ashitey thinks the addition of Meghan Markle to the Royal Family will do some good for race relations both in England and here ... seriously.

Btw ... "Seven Seconds" is available now on Netflix, and also deals with these same topics.

Kylie & Travis Late Lunch Date in the 'Bu ... Sans Stormi

2/24/2018 7:40 PM PST
Exclusive Video

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott took a parenting break to spend some quality time together, and we got them taking off in a HOT whip afterward ... probably to get home to their baby.

The couple was spotted at Nobu Malibu Saturday afternoon -- the first time we've seen them out in public together since the birth of their daughter, Stormi. The 2 didn't say much, but the LaFerrari they hopped in speaks volumes ... they're still livin' the good life.

The car's apparently Scott's push present to Kylie ... a $1.4 MILLION push present.

Kylie and Travis have ventured out separately since they became parents, but still no Stormi sighting ... so all we have to go off so far is what Travis said -- "She's beautiful." Kylie's also said Stormi looks just like her when she was a baby.

Speaking of beautiful ... take a look at the rides in that parking lot.

It's good to be rich.

'Platinum' Mike Perry I Could Kill Someone For Real ... in a UFC Fight

2/24/2018 2:35 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC stars claim they're gonna "kill" their opponents all the time ... but "Platinum" Mike Perry says he's the only guy who actually could -- and he's dead serious.

"People freak out when I go on social media and say, 'I'm gonna kill you' ... because they believe what I say," Platinum told TMZ Sports.

"They get upset when I say it because they think it might be a reality."

All of Mike's 11 wins have come by KO -- 12 if you count his New Year's Eve street fight -- so we ain't gonna second-guess him.

Perry says that's the plan for when he fights Max Griffin at UFC Fight Night Orlando this weekend ... saying Max might be in for "an early retirement" after they're done.

OK ... we're officially terrified.

Justin Theroux's Neighbor Sides with Jen Aniston ... He Made Her Live in Squalor!!!

2/24/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

10:30 AM PT -- A rep for Justin tells TMZ ... "Resnicow’s bizarre comments might carry more weight had he ever actually met Jen or toured Justin’s apartment, neither of which has ever happened."

As for the alleged water damage ... the rep says Justin's deck and apartment had nothing to do with it.

Justin Theroux's neighbor -- who thinks Justin's the Devil -- says he has no beef with Jennifer Aniston and feels sorry for her that Justin made her live in a s**thole apartment she hated from the get-go.

Norman Resnicow tells TMZ ... Jen's always been nice to him and he feels sorry for her, because he believes Justin tried to force her to like his NYC pad and then bailed on her because she didn't.

Resnicow says ... "Everyone knows Jennifer hated the place," and suggests she get top lawyers to protect herself against Theroux, "who is acting crummy to her like he did to me." He adds he's rooting for Jen because she named her most beloved dog Norman.

Norman, who is in a legal blood war with Justin over apartment stuff, says Justin has a lot of nerve because, "Hey, I'm the guy he asked to help ease moving of his previous girlfriend out of the building."

Norman just filed new legal docs in his ongoing legal war, claiming water damage from Justin's apartment has seeped into his living room, causing it to become mold-infested. Norman says it's so bad, he's taking meds to deal with the ill effects.
