Albert Haynesworth: My Baby Mama Attacked Me ... I Have Witnesses

9/20/2017 11:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL superstar Albert Haynesworth claims he's the victim of domestic violence -- alleging his baby mama physically and verbally abused him ... and TMZ Sports has the police report.

The drama between Haynesworth and his ex, Brittany Jackson, went public Wednesday when she accused him of skipping out on child support for their young son. 

Jackson's a former college basketball star who says she also played in the WNBA. 

Haynesworth -- who reportedly made more than $50 MILLION during his NFL career -- fired back with allegations of his own. 

"Not only has she called me unthinkable names she has been extremely violent," Haynesworth claims.

The 6'6", 350-pound defensive tackle says he called police on the woman more than 10 times during their rocky 2-year relationship. 

"I have witnesses and bruises but me for some reason still tried to protect her by not sending her to jail bc I didn't want to ruin her so called career and name."

TMZ Sports obtained a police report filed back in January in which Haynesworth told police in Tennessee that Jackson kicked him in the groin twice after an argument at a friend's house. Albert told cops she had been drinking wine. 

According to the police report, Haynesworth refused medical attention. Albert never pushed forward with charges. 

Haynesworth claims his ex, who is white, would call him the n-word -- despite the fact they have a mixed race child together -- because "she said she wanted me to feel hurt bc I didn't show her affection."

Haynesworth adds, "Being a man I am a provider and protecter I have millions of faults that are not flattering but NO ONE deserves to be mentally and physically abuse!!!"

We reached out to Haynesworth's ex multiple times for comment -- so far, no word back.

If Conor McGregor ever wants to get off his yacht and fight a real 170-pounder -- UFC rising star 'Platinum' Mike Perry says he's ALL ABOUT that action.

In fact ... when we asked Platinum about his dream fight, the knockout artist unleashed one of the most epic Conor call-outs ever. 

"I'll fight McGregor in Ireland, wassup?! In Dublin, wassup?! Quote me on that," Perry told TMZ Sports.

"You'll do f**kin' nothin' you f**kin' prick! Once I put these hands on you boy, I'll strangle you in two seconds."

Mike wasn't done there ... taunting the Irishman's heritage and saying he'd become "the new king of Dublin" after he KO's Conor, hops the cage and crowd surfs through the stadium.

Platinum's got a co-main event scrap this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 116, and ain't quite at the front of the line to fight Conor yet ... but hey, dream big right?

Mel B Under Criminal Investigation For Witness Tampering

9/11/2017 11:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B has been accused of intimidating a witness who was prepared to testify against her in her bitter divorce war with Stephen Belafonte, and police have opened a felony investigation.

Rapper Siya, who starred in "Sisterhood of Hip Hop," filed a police report Monday, claiming Mel B sent her texts last Saturday threatening her if Siya dared testify against her ... this according to law enforcement sources.

Our sources say Siya showed police the text messages and a felony witness intimidation case was opened.

We're told Siya was prepared to contradict Mel B and testify Belafonte never physically abused his wife. Siya claims she was a close friend of both Mel B and Belafonte. Sources connected with Mel B dispute that, saying Mel B only met Siya a couple of times.

We're told in addition to disputing Mel B's claims of abuse, Siya is prepared to testify Mel B frequently used illegal drugs. She's also prepared to testify about the 3-ways between Mel B, Belafonte and their nanny, Lorraine Gilles. Siya claims Mel B was the one who called the shots in the 3-ways.

Sources connected to Mel B are calling BS on Siya's allegation of witness intimidation.

Baker Mayfield has a target on his back for that whole flag-planting stunt -- and the Ohio State alums in the NFL will make him pay for it ... so says ex-Buckeyes star Beanie Wells.

DeRay Davis on Tamar Braxton Yeah, We Argued ... But I Never Said I'd Sic My Sisters!

9/10/2017 11:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeRay Davis has a funny way of explaining his on-set blow up with Tamar Braxton last week ... which involves board games, family, and only a partial denial.

We got the comedian Saturday night at Bootsy Bellows in WeHo, where we asked about his beef with Tamar on the set of "Hip Hop Squares" ... where he jokingly accused her of lip-syncing, and eventually threatened to get his sisters to beat her ass after an argument.

DeRay says the story's BS -- well, only part of it actually. He admits he and Tamar got into a spat, but that's only because they were competing ... and Tamar's a cheater, according to him. He denies threatening to sic any of his six sisters on her.

Dude had to cut the story short, though ... for obvious reasons.

Danielle Staub 'Racist' Rant Pisses Off 'RHONJ' Cast ... They Want Her Gone!!!

9/10/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Some of the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' want Danielle Staub edited out of the new season because they just found out about a racist rant she went on years ago ... TMZ has learned.

Cast members are demanding a meeting with producers after someone on the crew pointed out the audio footage existed. The audio recording is reportedly from a fight Danielle had with an ex-bf in 2015. She can be heard calling him a "stupid f***ing Mexican." She also dropped the n-word several times. 

Danielle was not on 'RHONJ' at the time of that recording ... she left after season 2. But here's the dilemma -- she's back now for season 8, which has already wrapped, and we're told she has an enormous amount of airtime. Cutting around her would be no simple task for producers. 

Still, now that they know about Danielle's rant ... we're told several cast members are disgusted they shot scenes with her. They're worried it will hurt their reputations and the show's ratings.

Mike Vick Calvin Pryor's My Homie ... But Stop Fighting!!

9/8/2017 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Vick has a message for his friend, Calvin Pryor -- if you wanna stay in the league, STOP FIGHTING! 

Vick and Pryor played together on the NY Jets in 2014 -- and Vick says he's his "little homie" -- so we had to ask about the fight that led to Pryor getting the axe in Cleveland

MV7 says game week can turn players a little more agro than usual -- but he's gotta temper the temper if he wants to stay employed ... and Vick knows that from experience. 

"We take conduct serious, and the coaches I always played for always stressed that," Vick says. "Not under Andy Reid, or Rex Ryan, or Mike Tomlin, or Jim Mora or Dan Reeves."

Can't really argue with that list. 

Floyd Mayweather TMT Member Roughs Up Fan ... Police Report Filed

9/8/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of Floyd Mayweather's giant TMT members roughed up a fan as the boxer left a famous chicken joint in Hollywood -- and now police are involved ... TMZ Sports has learned.

It all went down outside the legendary Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles on Wednesday evening -- where Floyd and his massive TMT entourage had dinner around 8 PM.

On his way out, Floyd was approached by a 20-year-old man in a white shirt and glasses who asked Floyd and his crew if he could take a quick photo.

That's when one of Floyd's guys -- a big dude in a red shirt -- rushed to the fan, grabbed him by the neck and slammed him against a wall.

(FYI, that same TMT entourage member was with Floyd during a shopping trip in Bev Hills earlier in the day and was sure acting like a member of the security team). 

After the video ends, we're told Floyd's crew put the boxer in the car and bolted.

The man -- who claims he was also punched in the face -- filed a police report and told cops he suffered injuries to his head, neck and mouth.

We spoke to the victim who says he is (was) a HUGE Floyd fan and just wanted a pic -- he wasn't trying to start any trouble.

Sources connected to Floyd's camp tell us the man in the red shirt is "not on the payroll" -- he's just with the entourage.

EXCLUSIVE

Tamar Braxton and comedian DeRay Davis got into an explosive argument over lip-sync trash talk and threats he'd unleash his sisters on Tamar to open up a can of ass whoopin'. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... the altercation went down Wednesday during filming of VH1's "Hip Hop Squares."

DeRay accused Tamar of lip-syncing, as a joke. She wasn't in earshot but noticed others laughing ... prompting her to ask what was so funny.

We're told Lil Mama relayed the joke to Tamar, and that's when she went off ... getting all up in DeRay's grill, but he wasn't having it. We're told DeRay barked back he didn't care who Tamar was or who her sisters were ... because he'd get HIS sisters to beat her ass.

For what it's worth ... Tamar was accused of lip-syncing her BET performance back in June.

They were eventually separated and filming resumed. No lingering beef, though. We're told Tamar and DeRay hashed things out after the show, which BTW returns Sept. 25 at 9/8c.

We reached out to DeRay and Tamar's camps ... so far no word back.

But not yet.
