EXCLUSIVE

0527-50-cent-yuriorkis-gamboa-GETTY-0150 Cent isn't going to lose his biggest boxing star ... despite the fact his promotions company filed for bankruptcy this week ... with Yuriorkis Gamboa vowing to ride with 50 all the way 'til the end.

We broke the story ... SMS Promotions filed for Chapter 11 this week ... claiming it wants to reorganize and keep the boxing business 50 started back in 2012 afloat.  

Well, Gamboa -- a former WBA and IBF featherweight champ -- says he's not concerned AT ALL about the company's financial situation ... saying, "I will support 50. He has always been a good friend and supporter."

Gamboa says he's actively trying to get as much information as he can about the situation -- like any good businessman would -- but says, "Regardless 50 can count me in his corner no matter what."

Ice Cube to Rabbi

For You, a Beatdown!

Casino Fight Alleged

5/27/2015 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-ice-cube-tmz-01So a rabbi and Ice Cube walk into a casino, and the rabbi catches an anti-Semitic fueled ass whuppin' -- at least that's what the rabbi's claiming, but Cube says that's a load of crap.

P. Taras, who says he's a rabbi ... tells TMZ he was at the MGM Detroit on May 24 when he literally bumped into Cube outside an elevator.

Taras claims he said something like ... hey, watch out -- and the rapper/actor responded by having his boys attack. While he was getting stomped, Taras claims he heard several epithets. He thinks that's because he was wearing a yarmulke. 

Taras has filed a lawsuit against Cube for assault and battery, and wants $2 million for his troubles.

Ice Cube's rep says, "Not only are these accusations a lie, he doesn't even know who this guy is."

0527_lindsay_lohan_tmzLindsay Lohan just did what nobody thought possible ... she completed her community service, but just in the nick of time.

Lindsay didn't have any time to spare. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will be in court Thursday with proof that the 125 hours were completed.

So tomorrow marks a new chapter in Lindsay's life ... it will be the first time in nearly 7 years she's off probation.

Amazing.

Kelly Osbourne has no problem dropping loads of cash on tiny pooches … around $27,000 worth.

The former "Fashion Police" co-host is fully prepped -- BTY tells us Kelly already bought her new pup a few outfits and is paying for a handler to fly the little, little one out to L.A. this week.

Kelly first fell for the breed when she won a Pomeranian named Nancy for around $16k at a Paris Hilton fundraiser for MS research. After she took Nancy home ... Kelly got the itch for another, and contacted Betty’s a few weeks later to get a sibling.

'19 Kids and Counting'

More Advertisers Jump Ship

5/27/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-19kids-dropped-advertisers-02

More advertisers are sending the message loud and clear to TLC ... they don't want ANYTHING to do with "19 Kids and Counting."

Jimmy Dean, Pure Leaf Iced Tea, Ace Hardware, David's Bridal, ConAgra Foods, Party City and Behr have all just announced they've removed their ad campaigns from the show and CVS, H&R Block, Ricola and Keurig all say they have no plans of advertising with the show if it's reinstated. 

It's been almost a week since TLC said it was yanking the show from the schedule, at least for the time being. The latest batch of skittish advertisers follow in the footsteps of Walgreens and General Mills.

TLC has still not made a final decision on the future of the show.

Jerry Ferrara

Tom Brady Is Finished

As Fantasy Football 1st Rounder

5/27/2015 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Ferrara thinks that the Tom Brady era is definitely OVER ... in fantasy football ... telling TMZ Sports Tom Terrific is no longer worthy of a first round fantasy draft pick.

The "Entourage" star (and fantasy nut) was in NYC promoting his other movie "Club Life" when asked if the suspended Brady was still studly enough to command one of the top picks in next year's fantasy drafts.

Jerry's answer is a solid NO ... which isn't surprising because he's a HUGE New York Giants fan ... but slightly controversial because his boss Mark Wahlberg LOVES him some Tom Brady.

Be careful Jerry ... we want to see Turtle return for "Entourage 2."

Bruce Jenner

Victim's Stepkids Don't Deserve Squat

In Wrongful Death Suit

EXCLUSIVE

0527-bruce-jenner-tmz-01

Bruce Jenner says the adult stepchildren of the woman who died in his Malibu car crash don't deserve a SINGLE PENNY from him ... because they didn't lose anything when she died.

Jenner just responded to the stepkids -- 57-year-old William and 60-year-old Dana -- in new legal docs ... saying their thin family connection does NOT give them the right to sue for wrongful death.

Long story short ... Jenner says William and Dana are grown ass adults that never depended on their stepmom Kim Howe to pay for essential things in their lives ... such as food, shelter, clothing or medical treatment. 

Jenner says the accident was a "terrible tragedy" -- but says it's not an excuse for William and Dana to cash in on Kim's death.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim had no relationship with her stepkids, and that her friends say she hadn't spoken with them in years.

Jenner is asking the court to throw out the case. Stay tuned.

Conrad Hilton

Ex-GF Claims He's Suicidal and Dangerous

5/27/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-conrad-hilton-hunter-salomon-eg-daily-rick-salomon-tyson-salomon-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-GETTY-01Paris Hilton's brother Conrad is in desperate shape, threatening to kill himself over unrequited love ... this according to new legal docs. 

Hunter Salomon, the daughter of Rick Salomon and actress E.G. Daily, claims she dated Conrad several years ago but they've been broken up for awhile.

Beginning last September, Hunter says the 21-year-old Hilton became scarily obsessive, saying she was the love of his life and even threatening to kill himself.

You'll recall Rick Salomon was Paris' partner in one of the best-selling sex tapes of all time. It's kind of bizarre that his daughter hooked up with her brother.

Hunter says in legal docs Conrad would repeatedly show up at her home at all hours, crying to E.G. that he wanted to marry her daughter. She says last Wednesday he showed up at her home, refused to leave and told her to "get a restraining order because he can't restrain himself," and then "asked if he could please just see me before he kills himself."

Conrad has struggled with substance abuse issues, most recently threatening flight attendants on an international flight, which led to criminal charges.

A judge granted a temporary restraining order, forcing him to stay 100 yards away from Hunter, her sister Tyson, Rick and E.G.

Houston Mayor's Office

Kaepernick Should Put Money

Where His Mouth Is

EXCLUSIVE

0527-colin-kaepernick-getty-01

If Colin Kaepernick is "truly remorseful" about the stupid, insensitive comments he made about Houston floods -- he should let his wallet do the talking and DONATE ... so say reps for the Mayor of Houston. 

After the 49ers quarterback apologized for mocking the deadly floods on social media yesterday, we reached out to the office of Mayor Annise Parker for comment. 

Her press secretary was straight and to the point:

"Anything Colin Kaepernick said isn't really of concern to us. We're focusing on what's going on here. We still have rain coming. We're focused on getting our residents what they need."

"He apologized. I'm sure he is sorry for what he did, so he is forgiven. This is too serious a situation to hold a grudge."

"If he is truly remorseful, he can donate to our food bank, to the Red Cross. Any of those avenues."

Your move, Kap. 

Adidas

Classic Smoke Screen On FIFA Scandal

EXCLUSIVE

Adidas -- All Day I Dream About Stalling. 

In the wake of several FIFA execs being arrested for allegedly taking more than $150 MILLION in bribes, we asked Adidas if it would continue its relationship with the soccer organization. 

Here's the answer we got ... 

"The adidas Group is fully committed to creating a culture that promotes the highest standards of ethics and compliance, and we expect the same from our partners. Following today’s news, we can therefore only encourage FIFA to continue to establish and follow transparent compliance standards in everything they do.

adidas is the world’s leading football brand and we will continue to support football on all levels."

Classic misdirection ... issue a statement that really doesn't say anything.  

Long story short ... FIFA is a big deal and Adidas doesn't want to do anything rash. Instead, issue an ambiguous statement until the dust settles.  

Mission accomplished?  

Lamar Odom

1-Man Dance Party

... In L.A. Day Club

5/27/2015 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom channeled his inner Billy Idol this week -- dancing with himself in the middle of a party at an L.A. day club ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

L.O. was hanging out at the Bungalow Lounge in Santa Monica on Monday -- one of the most exclusive places to day drink in town -- when some music came on that clearly struck a nerve. 

Odom started feelin' himself and busted out his own little two-step ... despite the fact no one else around him was gettin' down. 

But who cares what everyone else was doing -- we're told Odom was having a blast all day long. By the way, no one we spoke to saw him drinking.  

Odom also didn't have a date with him at the club -- probably because he's still focused on saving his marriage with Khloe Kardashian.
