EXCLUSIVE

0427-wes-welker-undrafted-getty-twitterWes Welker's horse "Undrafted" is returning to Churchill Downs -- seeking REVENGE after losing a Kentucky Derby pre-race last year ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Welker was the life of the party at Churchill in 2014 -- winning STACKS OF CASH (and then giving cash away) ... while partying his face off with the likes of Tom Brady. 

Now, we've learned the NFL star's 5-year-old gelding is registering to hit the track in Kentucky on May 1st -- in the same race he ran last year ... only this time, he wants that victory wreath!!! 

No word if Wes plans to break out the khaki suit and watch the race in person -- but he probably should ... 'cause it kinda worked out GREAT last year.

UFC's Rashad Evans

I Bet UFC Pulls Jon Jones

from UFC 187

EXCLUSIVE

It's just a matter of time before the UFC pulls Jon Jones from UFC 187 ... at least, that's what UFC star Rashad Evans believes will happen in the wake of the hit and run investigation in New Mexico. 

Jones is currently scheduled to fight Rashad's teammate Rumble Johnson in the main event during the May 23rd event in Las Vegas ... one of the biggest UFC events of the year. 

But now that cops have labeled Jones a suspect in the felony investigation -- Evans tells TMZ Sports he believes Dana White is probably looking for a replacement.

In fact, Rashad says the UFC has to "put their foot down" and make an example out of their biggest star. 

Justin Bieber

Bullied His Way into Prom

... High School Claims

4/27/2015 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber was not welcome at the high school prom he crashed this weekend -- not by the adults, anyway -- because school administrators say he physically shoved his way into the event.

Bieber popped into the Chatsworth Charter High prom for a few minutes on Saturday night at Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood -- and the students LOVED it when JB cruised around the dance floor.

Now, this might sound a little Footloose-y ... but the L.A. Unified School District thinks Justin's surprise dance appearance put students at risk. A district rep tells TMZ, "His entourage pushed past the school's security to gain access to the dance floor" ... and administrators were worried they wouldn't be able to control the crowd.

Justin had been recording on the lot -- something the school says it was aware of ... however, they were "assured that he would not come out to interfere."

Bieber's rep tells us no one tried to stop him when he walked in at the request of a few students he met on the lot. The rep adds, "It's unfortunate they're trying to make this a negative thing. It was awesome for all the kids."

The school does acknowledge the kids had a "once in a lifetime experience" -- but adds its main concern was for the safety of the kids and Justin.

In the end, no one was injured ... so, no detention for Justin.

Summers -- who claimed it was all a big joke -- was also ordered to have no contact with Mama June, Pumpkin, or anyone else in their family.

0427-floyd-mayweather-manny-pacquiao-jamie-fox-getty-01Another HUUUGE boxing role for Jamie Foxx -- 'cause he's just been tapped to sing the national anthem at the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight!

Foxx is a MAJOR boxing fan -- and famously starred as Muhammad Ali's right-hand man Drew Bundini Brown in "Ali."

This isn't the first time Foxx will be singing before a fight -- he belted out "America the Beautiful" before the Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight back in 2011 ... and CRUSHED IT!!!!

0427-main-amber-rose-machine-gun-kelly-tmz-wm-01Amber Rose and rapper Machine Gun Kelly are on like Donkey Kong ... because nothing screams "together" like an airport pickup. 

Rose met Kelly at baggage claim as he helped himself to handfuls of booty ... so say other disembarking passengers.

Kelly may want to talk things out with his boy Wiz Khalifa -- the guy Amber called the love of her life earlier this month. They share the beat in "Mind of a Stoner," but that doesn't necessarily mean he's cool with sharing the mother of his kid.

We can't figure out whether she has a type.

Andrew Getty -- the grandson of billionaire titan J. Paul Getty -- was targeted in death by thieves who stole some very expensive flatware. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, within 2 weeks of his death at the end of March, burglars broke into his gated home near Mulholland Drive and stole his silverware.

Cops tell us the thieves gained entry by forcing open a door.

The 47-year-old heir, whose father was reportedly worth $2 billion, had all sorts of eccentric items, including mechanical devices for a horror film he was producing.

We're told as far as cops know, the only thing the thieves took was silverware. Weird.

Bruce Jenner

Kids Deliver Shocking News

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.

Courtney Love Sued

Courtney Love Biography
Courtney Love's biographer -- one of the best in the biz -- says he went through hell to write her life story ... and claims his reward was getting canned without notice, and then shortchanged on his paycheck.

Anthony Bozza is suing Love, claiming he got paid $100,000 for his work ... but their deal calls for him to get paid an additional $200k.

Bozza -- who has written with the likes of Slash, Tommy Lee, Tracy Morgan and Artie Lange -- claims he incurred $10,000 in expenses ... and didn't receive a dime in reimbursement. He also claims Love would disappear for months at a time, which caused him to deliver the manuscript late.

In the end, Bozza claims he was never officially fired, but says Love texted him that she was "fixing" the book, and she'd already hired a new writer to rework his version. 

Bozza is suing for breach of contract and wants the $200k he claims he's owed, plus interest.
