MMA legend, Randy Couture, is a master of the octagon ... so most people wouldn't want to be in the ring with him ... unless it was covered in frosting like the one he gave his son for his birthday.

Randy's son, Ryan Couture, celebrated his his 33rd birthday at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse inside the D Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday night.

Pops gave Ryan -- who is also an MMA fighter -- a cake resembling the ring both are known for.

We're told things got a little messy when Randy smeared cake across his face ... but it was all in good fun.

Over High-Priced Bike Collection

breaking news

0828-robin-williams-bike-GETTY-01Robin Williams' widow and his three kids are still warring over his possessions, including his super-expensive collection of bicycles.

The attorney for Susan Williams, Robin's widow, was in court Friday morning ... asking a San Francisco judge to settle the remaining property disputes with Robin's 3 children ... Zak, Zelda and Cody.

Robin was an avid cyclist and owned dozens of bikes when he died. It's been reported he spent more than a million bucks on the sport. Some of his cycles were extremely rare and worth tens of thousands of dollars.

The attorney for the children says Robin's will is clear about who should get what ... and doesn't think the court needs to intervene.

Both sides will meet next week in a last ditch effort to settle the matter without the judge.

Brian Austin Green

Spousal Support Necessary

Vertigo Derails Work

EXCLUSIVE

0821-brian-austin-green-tmz-01Brian Austin Green will almost certainly get spousal support from Megan Fox in their divorce, and the reason appears to stem from a terrible car accident.

TMZ broke the story, Megan filed for divorce Friday.  As we said, our sources say it's likely she'll end up paying Brian spousal support, because of the large disparity in income and income potential.

We're told Brian has worked very little since last December, when he was in a head-on collision.  As we reported, Brian and Megan were driving when they were hit by a drunk driver who was arrested.  Brian says the guy was going around 50 MPH and it was severe enough for the airbags to deploy.

At the time of the accident TMZ was told Brian and Megan were not injured.  But now we're told the accident triggered a serious medical condition ... vertigo, which affects balance.

Our sources say Brian's vertigo is so bad he can't get out of bed.  We're told he hasn't worked since the accident.

As we reported, Brian and Megan -- who is working steadily on huge movies -- are still living in the same home.

Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter

Alleged Murderer Wanted in Cocaine Case

EXCLUSIVE

0817-morgan-freeman-granddaughter-GETTY-01

The man accused of fatally stabbing Morgan Freeman's granddaughter is a wanted man in California ... in connection with a coke bust.

Lamar Davenport -- who allegedly murdered 33-year-old E’Dena Hines early Sunday morning -- was arrested by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies in July 2014 after bringing cocaine to Magic Mountain.

He was charged with felony possession of coke but the judge cut him a break, allowing him to make things right by going to rehab.  

Here's the problem. He was supposed to appear in court last February for a progress report but never showed up. It's unclear if he bailed on rehab. 

The judge issued a bench warrant and he was on the lam ever since ... until Sunday.
