Floyd Mayweather Sr. Allegedly Punched Woman at Canelo vs. GGG Fight

1/23/2018 4:07 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin weren't the only two people fighting at T-Mobile Arena back in Sept. ... cops say Floyd Mayweather Sr. attacked a woman that night and now there's a warrant out for his arrest. 

But, Floyd Sr. says the allegations are 100% not true.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... the alleged incident went down in Vegas the early hours of Sept. 17 ... following the big Canelo vs. GGG fight. 

We're told the alleged victim was heading toward Floyd's car when an argument broke out between the two. Floyd allegedly told the woman to get out of the car, but she refused so he reached in and dragged her out by the leg. 

65-year-old Floyd allegedly made things worse by punching her in the leg once she was out of the car. The accuser claims Floyd then got in the driver's seat and sped off without her. 

The woman was hospitalized for minor injuries. Officials eventually charged Floyd with misdemeanor battery and on January 16, a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to court records.

We spoke with Floyd's rep who tells us the alleged victim is "trying to extort money and she's angry because she's not getting the money from Floyd. It's not going the way she wants it to go."

Oakland Raiders To Sean Smith Accuser: Don't Blame Us for Alleged Beatdown

1/22/2018 10:43 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Oakland Raiders are firing back at the man who sued the NFL team over an alleged attack at the hands of star cornerback Sean Smith ... claiming the team has NOTHING to do with the incident. 

The accuser is Christopher Woods -- who claims Smith beat the hell out of him on July 4, 2017 outside of a bar in Pasadena, CA. 

Wood not only sued Smith -- but also went after the Raiders claiming the team's aggressive strength and conditioning programs turned Smith into a human-wrecking machine. Wood also claimed Smith was in town as part of a team-sponsored promotional and marketing trip. 

But the Raiders are calling B.S. -- claiming "the alleged assault has no conceivable nexus to the Raiders or Smith's employment with the Raiders." 

The team essentially says in new docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court ... if the allegations are true, Smith acted on his own -- your beef is with him, not us. 

As we previously reported, Wood claims Smith stomped on his face during the incident -- causing multiple facial fractures that required surgery. Wood claims he suffered brain damage. 

The Raiders are asking the judge to toss the suit against the team. There's a hearing on the matter in February. 

Comedian Steve Brown Viciously Attacked During Set

1/22/2018 5:45 AM PST
Exclusive Details

7:45 AM PT -- Cops say the suspect's first name is Marvin, and ... shocker ... he was boozing at the club. We're told 4 people in the club, aside from Steve, were injured and they want to press charges. He also did $400 in damages ... smashing the mic, dishes and glasses.

One of the victims is a security guard who says he got punched in the face before Marvin bolted in a car.Comic Steve Brown probably wishes he just got heckled Sunday night at a comedy club, because a disgruntled "fan" seemed gunning to kill him.

Steve was doing a set at the Comedy House in Columbia, South Carolina when a guy in the audience jumped onstage and just went insane, first trying to viciously strike Steve with the mic stand and then a stool.

Steve ducked out of the way and, a good 30 seconds into the attack, a few people at the club had the presence of mind to subdue the guy, who was taken outside but then came back.

The Richland County Sheriff's Dept. responded to the club, and has opened an investigation. So far, no arrests.

Steve escaped unharmed, but he's blasting the club for lack of security.

Megyn Kelly Jane Fonda's a Traitor She Has No Right to Call Me Offensive

1/22/2018 7:43 AM PST

Megyn Kelly lashed out at Jane Fonda Monday, essentially calling her a traitor who has no business lecturing her, or anyone else, on what qualifies as offensive.

Kelly was reacting to Fonda's blistering criticism of her for asking about Fonda's plastic surgery on one of Kelly's earlier shows. Fonda felt it was inappropriate and silly.

Kelly just exploded with her own criticism, saying Jane told just about anyone who would listen that she had work done.

And then Megyn called Jane out for her comments during the Vietnam war, which earned her the nickname, "Hanoi Jane."

Now a new war has erupted.

Chael Sonnen Slams Rampage, Fedor ... WITH POEM!!!

1/20/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chael Sonnen strolled in to the TMZ newsroom ...

With a poem to make everyone look like buffoons.

No, not us, his Bellator competition ...

Who he says he'll knock out, what a shocking admission!

That's right, Chael says he'll put Rampage to sleep ...

Putting Jackson's lights out, leaving him in a heap.

Sonnen's not scared of the others either, you see ...

The heavyweights in his tourney are kinda crappy, says he.

Russia's Fedor couldn't win if Putin came through with a tank ...

And Roy Nelson's too fat, you can take that to the bank.

So when Chael sweeps the field and out-fights 'em all ...

Don't be surprised that a gangster's the belle of the brawl! 

The Killers Somebody Told Me ... There's a Fight in the First Row

1/17/2018 11:12 AM PST

Killers frontman Brandon Flowers stopped the band's concert Tuesday night after a fight broke out in the front row, but what's even more amazing is how the band jumped right back into the song.

Flowers and co. were about 3 songs in at the United Center in Chicago when he put the brakes on the set because 2 guys were going at it in the front row. The band was performing "Somebody Told Me" when Flowers told them to stop ... so kinda perfect timing, if you think about it. 

We'll say this, fighting at a concert's never cool -- but The Killers made the most of it. You gotta see their restart into the 2nd verse. FIIIIRE!!!!

Rockets' Eric Gordon On Clippers Fight: 'No Biggie'

1/16/2018 6:07 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Despite tempers flaring and a locker room standoff, Houston Rockets player Eric Gordon says the incident with the Clippers is simply, "No biggie."

Yeah, right. 

Gordon hit up Catch in West Hollywood after the heated battle with the Clippers in which several Rockets players -- including Chris Paul -- reportedly tried to fight Clips players in the tunnel and locker room area after the game. 

Gordon told TMZ Sports he doesn't expect any suspensions and really played the whole thing down as no big deal. 

One of the Rockets players reportedly involved in storming the locker room was Gerald Green -- who was also at dinner with Gordon after the game. He looked calmer, but still upset. 

Nearby ... Clippers star DeAndre Jordan hit Poppy alone -- but he wasn't his usual talkative self for obvious reasons. 

As for the locker room incident, security and the LAPD were reportedly called in to break things up after several players -- from CP3 to James Harden and Green -- allegedly tried to confront Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin following a chippy game. 

UFC's Francis Ngannou Blasts Stipe Miocic Keep Whining ... You're Dead!

1/16/2018 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Francis Ngannou says it's "bullsh*t" Stipe Miocic is complaining about not being promoted enough before UFC 220 ... and he's putting the heavyweight champ on notice.

"The UFC not gonna fight for him," Ngannou told TMZ Sports. "The fight day we gonna be 1-on-1 in the Octagon and we will see the truth."

FYI, Francis has taken the MMA world by storm -- BRUTALLY knocking out 5 dudes in his last 6 fights -- leading Stipe to believe the UFC wants Ngannou to take his belt.

Francis clearly thinks the champ's priorities are crap ... saying Miocic should be focused on not ending up like Alistair Overeem.

Amen.

Seal Don't Twist My Words, I Wasn't Attacking Oprah!!! But, Stacey Dash ...

1/12/2018 6:54 AM PST

Seal is making the most epic stance ... against people who think he blasted Oprah, against people who call him an "Uncle Tom" ... and against Stacey Dash. Naturally.

The singer is firing back after getting backlash for an Instagram repost he put up Thursday ... seemingly calling out Oprah for knowing about Harvey Weinstein and keeping silent about it.

We say seemingly, because Seal now says everyone -- including Stacey and FOX News -- got it twisted, and he actually has great respect for Oprah. You just have to watch the video to get his explanation.

Beyond Oprah ... he also has some seriously harsh words for anyone questioning his "blackness" -- and this part of the rebuttal includes him breaking into song. It's tremendous.

We're still not sure he'd vote for Oprah, but we KNOW he ain't voting for Stacey!

UFC's Jeremy Stephens I Want a Date with ... Conor McGregor's 'Hot' Mom!!

1/11/2018 3:53 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens just hit Conor McGregor with the trash-talkin' KO of the century -- saying he's ready to turn up the heat with the Irishman's "hot" mom!!

You remember how the beef began -- after Jeremy called out Conor at a news conference for UFC 205, Conor whipped around and famously said, "Who da fook is dat guy?!" 

About a year later, Stephens shot back ... with a little help from Mama McGregor.

And now, Jeremy's taking it all the way.

"Maybe his dad can pick us up with the cab he used to drive and then take me and his mom out on a date," he told the guys on TMZ Sports (full interview airs tonight on FS1).

FYI, Stephens is in action -- the fighting kind -- this weekend at UFC Fight Night 124 ... and, of course, he says Conor's mom is invited! 

Versace Family We Feel Victimized Again ... This Time By 'American Crime Story' Producers

1/9/2018 4:01 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gianni Versace's family is livid and disgusted at everyone who contributed in the TV re-creation of the bloody murder scene.

Our Versace family sources say they can't believe the current owners of Gianni's Miami Beach mansion -- now the Villa Casa Casuarina -- gave full access to producers of "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story." In particular they're appalled the show was able to dramatize the death scene on the very steps Gianni was gunned down. 

We're told Donatella is still devastated over her brother's death and believes Gianni was so private he never would have wanted the grisly murder exploited for a TV movie.

As we reported ... filming began at the now luxury hotel back in May where 'ACS' set up shop for almost an entire month.

The family tells TMZ they didn't sign off on the project and had no involvement in the production, and they feel there are enough inaccuracies that the miniseries should be considered a work of fiction.

Donatella has already said she will NOT watch the show. That said, we're told family friends have already screened the first episode and were APPALLED to watch the horrifying murder.

The family plans no legal action ... fact is, it's virtually impossible to win a case like this. 

We have reached out to the Villa Casa Casuarina ... so far no word back.

Kathy Griffin Trump Beheading Has NO Place in Neighbor War

1/8/2018 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kathy Griffin's drawing a line in her court battle with her neighbor ... and it has to do with the infamous Trump beheading image.

Kathy filed docs in the ongoing war with Jeffrey Mezger, asking the court to block him from dragging her comedy act into their court case. According to the docs, Mezger wants Kathy's act -- including the photo of her holding the "bloodied" Trump head -- to be used as exhibits.

Kathy says it's a blatant attempt to turn the case into a trial about her personality ... rather than focusing on the threats Mezger allegedly hurled at Kathy and her boyfriend.

In addition, Kathy says her home security cameras -- which Mezger complains invade his privacy -- are not hidden, and incapable of capturing any of Mezger's private conversations ... as he claimed. The judge ruled that Kathy can't use her security footage. 

The judge still has to rule on the other motion.

Cris Cyborg I Wanna Kick Amanda Nunes' Ass ... But She Ain't Next

1/4/2018 4:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cris Cyborg says she's 100% down to annihilate Amanda Nunes when the time is right ... but tells TMZ Sports it ain't gonna happen anytime soon. 

Earlier today, UFC honcho Dana White said Amanda is itching to scrap with Cris ... adding that it's "the fight to make."

But when we spoke with Cyborg, she pumped the brakes on the super fight -- "I want beat her, I want kick her ass, but I need to focus on my division."

Cyborg (the champ at 145 lbs.) told us she wants to fight the "best girls" who've been climbing the ladder at featherweight ... and Amanda (the champ at 135 lbs.) has been fighting at bantamweight her entire UFC career.

So, Nunes can get it ... but not right now. 

Cyborg also told us whether or not she forgives the photog who called her a "dude," and if she's satisfied with the UFC's punishment.
