UFC's Nick Diaz Training with Van Damme 'Dream Come True'

28 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Nick Diaz says training with Jean-Claude Van Damme this weekend was a dream come true -- especially since JCVD helped grow his love for fighting back when he was a kid. 

Both Nick and his bro Nate Diaz hooked up with the action legend for a clinic in leg strikes -- so, we hit up Nick to find out what exactly went down when the 3 got into the gym. 

Check out the clip ... Nick was clearly stoked to train with the guy and says things went so well, he plans to do it again soon. 

But the funniest part ... watch how quickly Nick shut down the question when we tried to ask about his brother and Conor McGregor. Dude wasn't havin' it.

Kanye West My Record Is So Fresh & Clean ... Judge Erases Pap Case

5/2/2016 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0502-kanye-west-TMZ-01Kanye West is a blank slate, criminally speaking -- a judge signed off on erasing his conviction for that paparazzi beatdown at LAX.

According to court docs, obtained by TMZ, the judge approved Kanye's request to expunge the case. You'll recall he pled no contest in 2014 to misdemeanor battery for the incident.

As we reported, Kanye's been a model citizen ever since ... putting in more than the 250 community service hours that were required, and staying on the straight and narrow for his 24 months of probation.

See, Lindsay Lohan ... it CAN be done.

Michael Chiklis Beefs with Roger Goodell ... You're NO 'Commish'

5/2/2016 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

COMMISH WAR!!! 

The "Commish" is pissed at the "Commish" -- with Michael Chiklis claiming Roger Goodell is making an absolute mockery of the esteemed title. 

Of course, Chiklis famously starred as Police Commissioner Tony Scali on "The Commish" back in the day ... and says he learned the term "Commish" must be EARNED.

"The term 'Commish' is a term of endearment bestowed upon a commissioner by his subordinates out of feelings of affection ... it's not one that you endow yourself with as a moniker or a Twitter handle."

He then pointed out that Goodell's Twitter handle is "@nflcommish."

BTW, Chiklis also happens to be a HUUUGE Patriots fan. 

COMMISH WAR!!!

Britney Spears Face Off with Nemesis Sam Lutfi

5/2/2016 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0502-britney-spears-arriving-to-deposition-SPLASH-03Britney Spears has to sit face-to-face with the man her family says has been haunting her for years.

Britney is in a conference room right now, answering questions fired off by the lawyer for her former friend and self-proclaimed manager Sam Lutfi. Britney's people went to great lengths to keep Lutfi out of the room, arguing to a judge that he intimidates her and she cannot think properly around him.

The judge didn't buy Britney's argument, but did take steps to protect her. According to the order, the conference room must have a long table, with Britney at one end and Lutfi at the other.

The judge also allowed a "surveillance type camera" to record the entire depo, showing the entire room to ensure Lutfi doesn't intimidate or distract Britney. They're also required to come and go at different times, so he doesn't run into her.

Britney's family claims back in 2007 Lutfi was fueling her with drugs. He claims he was trying to get her off meds.

Lutfi is suing for various things ... he says he's owed money as Britney's manager, and also claims her dad, Jamie, punched him.

Kid Rock 911 Operator Defended by Bosses

5/2/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-kid-rock-tmzThe 911 operator who painfully procrastinated while Kid Rock and his girlfriend made a desperate plea for an ambulance was rock solid and right ... so say her bosses.

It's difficult to hear. Kid Rock pleads with the dispatcher to send help for his assistant who appears to be dead after getting into an accident on the singer's ATV, but the dispatcher asks a slew of questions before sending help, some of which make no sense. You hear both Kid Rock and the girlfriend say the man appears dead, and then the dispatcher asks, "Is he awake?"

A rep for the Nashville Emergency Communications Center tells us the dispatcher was following protocol ... adding the agency must protect first responders, so the dispatcher won't send them until he or she is convinced the EMTs aren't putting their lives on the line.

Turns out the ambulance did no good ... KR's assistant, ​Michael Sacha​, was already dead when he called.

Lisa Ann Chyna Didn't Belong In Porn 'She Was Bigger Than Us'

5/2/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chyna was a larger than life icon who should've never done porn ... that's according to one of her co-stars Lisa Ann ... who says the bang biz was too dark a place for the late WWE star.

FYI, Lisa Ann starred in the XXX movie "Chyna Is Queen Of The Ring" back in 2012 ... and Lisa says her heart sank as soon as she saw the WWE legend on set.

"Porn wasn't an element for her, she was so much bigger than us ... it's a bottom feeding situation where people will take advantage of people when they're weak."

It's pretty compelling stuff ... Lisa -- who recently detailed her relationship with Chyna in Stashed magazine -- goes on to say there should have been someone ... ANYONE ... in Chyna's life willing to give her a hand financially so she didn't have to bang on camera.

Check out the clip.

5/2/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-hillary-clinton-thehot-sauce-boss-01Hillary Clinton's affinity for hot sauce has rubbed off on her staff ... because we've learned her campaign just ordered a big shipment of the spicy stuff straight to HQ.

A top Hillary staffer hit up The Hot Sauce Boss for a bottle of each flavor, including Spicy Honey, Guava Mango Coconut, and Spicy Kush Lime. The joke's too easy ... the box was sent to Hillary for America in New York City

We're told the sauce wasn't specifically for H ... the staff has become hardcore disciples, particularly when it comes to eggs. 

As you know, Hillary told Charlamagne Tha God she never leaves home without her sauce.

O-Town Tour Demands Are All '90s Or Nothing

5/2/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-otown-getty-tmz-01O-Town's either stuck in the '90s or they just have a great sense of humor about their upcoming tour.

The boy band's hitting the road with 98 Degrees, Dream and Ryan Cabrera for the nostalgic MY2K Tour and their rider is filled with throwback items like a '90s boombox "to play their sweet cassette collection" ... and a Nintendo 64 to "play GoldenEye." 

Other backstage demands include cases of local beer, assorted liquors, 5 cans of silly string and a back scratcher.

Most bizarre on their list is definitely the kitty litter and wet cat food "for the stray cats the band takes in while on the road."

That's gotta be code.

Prince George Lopez Helps Family with Big Bucks

5/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0430-prince-lopez-getty-tmz-01Prince's family has a guardian angel ... who goes by the name George Lopez, because we've learned the comedian has fronted money to the family the singer left behind.

Turns out ... George was tight with Prince, and he learned all of the assets in the estate have been frozen until a judge determines how much the administrator can give family members for living expenses. Prince was generous with his family, giving them money and even homes during his life.

Some of the singer's siblings are now cash strapped because they've been temporarily cut off, and we've learned George has advanced them $20k to cover living and travel expenses and that figure could go up.

We're told George did it all anonymously ... not wanting any fanfare or adulation.

Good job, Lopez.
