Charles Manson Grandson Files Probate Docs Manson's Body Still On Ice

12/8/2017 10:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Charles Manson's grandson has filed legal docs to handle his notorious grandfather's estate and presumably take possession of his body.

Jason Freeman filed the docs asking the court to appoint the guy he's selected to decide how to deal with any assets Manson left behind and how to dispose of his body.

Freeman claims Manson died without a will, and that sets up a legal fight because Michael Channels claims he has a valid will that Manson wrote and appointed him executor. Channels says he developed a friendship with the murderer over the years.

As for Freeman, his dad was Charles Manson Jr., but he understandably changed his name to Charles White. White killed himself in 1993 with a gunshot to the head. 

In the meantime, Manson's body still lies in the custody of Kern County.

Tom Brady I Hope Gronk Isn't Suspended For Late Hit On Bills Player

Breaking News

Tom Brady hopes he won't have to play without Rob Gronkowski next week ... despite the superstar tight end's controversial late hit on a defenseless Bills player on Sunday.

TB12 spoke with 'Kirk and Callahan' on WEEI Monday morning and addressed the hit on Tre'Davious White -- resulting in a concussion -- saying Gronk lashed out after growing frustrated with unfair calls earlier in the game.

"It's an emotional game and these are like spur of the moment things, they just happen," Brady says.

"You always love to keep your cool all the time but you're in a sport where you're trying to run and block and hit and tackle and be physical and aggressive. That's why people tune in."  

"I think if it was a pillow fight, people wouldn't tune in to watch."

When he was asked whether Gronk deserves to be suspended, Brady defended his teammate ... saying, "I certainly hope not."

Benjamin Netanyahu Blasts Iran for Making Wrestler Throw Match to Avoid Facing Israel

12/4/2017 6:57 AM PST

Iran hates Israel so much it ordered one of its wrestlers to throw a match to avoid facing an Israeli in the following round ... prompting Benjamin Netanyahu to rip the Iran regime a new one.

The Israeli Prime Minister posted this video Monday after Ali Reza Karimi of Iran was ordered by his coach to throw his match against Russia's Alikhan Zhabrailov at the U-23 World Championships in Poland. The reason? He would've faced Israel's Uri Kalashnikov in the second round.

As Netanyahu says in the video, Iran forbids its athletes from competing against Israelis. He says, "Now that's not surprising, given that the regime in Tehran calls for the destruction of all Israelis, the destruction of Israel."

Check it out ... Netanyahu challenges the world to "show Iran's regime that hating others will never make you a champion. It only makes you a pathetic and insecure loser."

Wanna know how LaVar Ball feels about Byron Scott telling him to stay in his lane??

"He ain't doin' nothing else. Tell him if he want his name in the news, tell him go do something! You ain't gotta talk about Ball to get your name in the news."

"But then again, yes you do. Cause ain't nobody talk about Byron Scott doin' nothing."

Dang ... looks like Donald Trump's actually been getting off easy.

Danielle Bregoli Beef Is Served!!! Chanel West Coast Is Just Jealous of Me

12/1/2017 9:26 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli might not be America's sweetheart (okay, definitely not), but she's still way more relevant and famous than Chanel West Coast ... according to Danielle.

We got the infamous "Cash Me Outside" girl in West L.A. on the heels of Chanel firing a shot across her bow. If ya missed it, Chanel claimed the reason she went nuts this week on the doorman at Poppy ... is because only "ignorant fools" like Danielle get attention these days.

If Chanel's looking for a fight ... we know Danielle tends to be down for one at all times. But her reaction here is more like Chanel's not worth the trouble.

Weird. Did she just mature ... on camera? Naaah!!!

NBA YoungBoy No Chain Reaction ... Stolen Bling Returned

11/28/2017 12:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

NBA YoungBoy's snatched chain is back in his possession before the situation could escalate -- he'd threatened to shoot the perp -- thanks to a guy with some serious street cred.

Sources close to rapper JoJo Capone tell TMZ ... the famed hip-hop mediator did what he does best regarding YoungBoy's stolen chain, and managed to retrieve it for him peacefully.

#NBAYoungboy’s chain snatched from entourage member in North Carolina

A post shared by VladTV (@vladtv) on

YoungBoy's chain was actually yanked off the neck of someone in his crew during a gig last weekend in Greensboro, NC ... causing the rapper to stop the show, and warn the crowd he'd shoot up the place if it wasn't returned.

We're told the guy who snatched it allegedly wanted a $20k ransom for it, but ended up reaching out to Capone instead to broker a peaceful solution.

JoJo also helped squash a beef between The Game and Young Thug in 2015.

There really should be some sorta hip-hop Nobel Peace Prize for this kinda thing.

Jaleel White Snatch My Chain?! 'I'd F**k You Up Terribly!'

11/27/2017 8:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jaleel White's take on the Michael Crabtree vs. Aqib Talib chain-snatching fight might be the best take: 

"If I had a chain on and you snatched it, I would f*ck you up terribly."

White continued, "I would have to do that on GP (general principle). I wouldn't even want to but because I knew my daughter would see the footage, I would have to do it."

Of course, Crabtree subscribes to the same set of principles ... he got violent with Talib during the Raiders vs. Broncos game on Sunday after getting his chain snatched IN JANUARY, too. 

Still, worst chain snatching ever might still be that Steve Francis incident. Brutal. 

MLB's Joe Morgan Goes Full Tupac On Steroid Users Keep 'Em Outta Hall of Fame

11/21/2017 7:53 AM PST
Breaking News

MLB Hall of Famer Joe Morgan hates steroid users ... 'cause he just destroyed them all in a SCATHING letter to Hall of Fame voters BEGGING them to keep all the alleged dopers out.

Morgan was elected to the Hall in 1990, and it's clear he doesn't want to share it with any science projects, writing an open letter on behalf of all clean members of the hall.

It's long, but here are some of the most Tupac Hit-Em-Up style gems.

"We hope the day never comes when known steroid users are voted in to the Hall of Fame. They cheated. Steroid users don't belong there."

"The cheating that tainted an era now risks tainting the Hall of Fame too."

Pretty gangsta, we know, but nothing compared to the most potent bar from the salvo ... we like to call it "The Ultimatum."

"It's gotten to the point where Hall of Famers are saying if steroid users get in, they'll no longer come to Cooperstown for induction ceremonies or other events."

BTW the finalists for this year's class were just announced, and a couple of the guys are definitely dudes Morgan is talking about. We'll have to see if they respond with some Ether of their own.

LaVar Ball I Would've Thanked Trump If He Put LiAngelo on Air Force One

11/20/2017 8:49 PM PST
Breaking News

LaVar Ball says he would've given President Trump a "thank you" had the Prez brought LiAngelo Ball and his UCLA teammates back home from China on Air Force One.

Ball appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo Monday night to discuss the ongoing battle with Trump -- and to nobody's surprise -- LaVar held his ground in NOT thanking 45. Ball's main argument ... there's no proof Trump was the primary reason his son and teammates were sprung from the country.

There was one thing, however, that LaVar says would've granted the Prez an automatic "thank you" from father Ball ... a free ride home on AF1.

LaVar went on to say ... Trump's got bigger fish to fry, so let the UCLA thing go.

Donald Trump Rips Marshawn Lynch Suspend Him If He Kneels Again!

11/20/2017 5:58 AM PST
Breaking News

Donald Trump has turned his sights on BeastMode -- blasting the NFL star for sitting during the U.S. national anthem -- but standing for the Mexican national anthem -- during his game this weekend.

Marshawn Lynch was clearly looking to send a political message when his Oakland Raiders played the New England Patriots in Mexico City on Sunday.

But it rubbed Trump the wrong way ... with POTUS tweeting:

"Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!"

"Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down."

UFC's Fabricio Werdum Boomerang Attack on Rising Star ... After Alleged Slur

11/16/2017 7:20 AM PST
Breaking News

UFC star Fabricio Werdum attacked another UFC fighter with a boomerang in Australia. 

Seriously -- we're not making this up.

It all went down at the UFC fighters' hotel in Sydney ... when rising welterweight star Colby Covington allegedly called Werdum a "filthy Brazilian" in the lobby.

FYI, Covington hurled a similar insult at a Brazilian crowd after his last fight in Sao Paulo ... and Fabricio's one of the UFC's biggest Brazilian stars.

So, Werdum did what any angry Australian tourist would do -- he took it outside and UNCORKED HIS DAMN BOOMERANG!!!

Later on, Covington recorded himself going on a racist and homophobic rant against the former heavyweight champ ... where he claimed Fabricio also punched him in the face.

"Look at you, f**king f**got," Colby said. "F**k Brazil. F**k Fabricio Werdum ... and they wonder why they get talked to like that -- 'cause they’re a bunch of animals."

But Werdum says he didn't punch Covington ... claiming Colby got physical first by throwing a kick.

The UFC released a statement saying they'll investigate the incident. Covington told MMA Fighting he plans on pressing charges.

Conor McGregor Incident KO'd Fighter Sounds Off ... 'You Can't F**kin' Do That!!!'

11/13/2017 3:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who got KO'd in the cage right before Conor McGregor LOST HIS DAMN MIND feels pretty much how we all do about the situation ...

"You can't f**kin' jump out of a crowd in a sporting contest and do all that type of stuff," John Redmond told TMZ Sports. "In no place in life is that really tolerated."

John's being pretty cool to Conor, all things considered ... saying he's got no plans of taking legal action even though McGregor's outburst almost got him trampled.

That said, Redmond tells us there's only 1 way Conor can make it right -- A REMATCH (with his teammate, Charlie Ward).

"Tell your boy to bleedin' gear up again and get in and fight me!"

Doesn't seem like McGregor's in the mood to make amends with anyone ... but maybe for a fellow countryman??

Conor McGregor 'F**k Yous All' ... Responds to Ref Incident

11/13/2017 7:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Conor McGregor is explaining why he "lost it" at an MMA fight in Dublin on Friday -- saying the ref had no business trying to throw him out of the cage.

He also offered up a "f**k yous" to all of his critics.

You remember the incident -- Conor illegally scaled the cage at Bellator 187 after his training partner, Charlie Ward, won by knockout ... and EXPLODED on veteran UFC ref Marc Goddard for breaking up the party. He slapped a regulatory official square in the dome too.

After the fight, everyone was asking the same question -- why did Conor go batsh*t insane?

McGregor tweeted (and then deleted) early Monday morning, saying:

"Bloke KO'd on floor bout a minute straight and ref trying to say fight's not over, Conor. That's when I lost it. F**k yous all."

So, what happens next? Will McGregor be disciplined for getting physical with multiple officials?

We've reached out to the UFC to see if they'll take action. Stay tuned ...
