YG Sued for Vegas Beating & Robbery

6/21/2018 2:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG had his goons beat up a fan, before the rapper himself snatched some jewelry off the guy ... at least that's what the fan claims in a new lawsuit.

The fan says he spotted YG last month at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and asked him for a pic. He says the rapper refused and started cursing at him -- and, as he was walking away, he claims YG told his crew to "get him."

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the guy says the next thing he knew ... he was surrounded by YG's pals, who punched him in the face and held him down. He says he was totally out of it when YG stepped up and grabbed his gold chain and diamond-laced pendant.

He claims YG and co. immediately fled the scene. He's suing YG for assault, battery and theft ... and wants at least $250,000. He's also going after the Cosmo for inadequate security.

6/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tommy Lee is getting married on Valentine's Day 2019 and wants everyone to feel the love, even his estranged son, Brandon, who he still wants at his wedding.

Sources close to Tommy tell us he's planning on sending an invite to his eldest despite their drama over Father's Day. Y'know, Tommy called his sons "a**holes" and said they didn't value things ... then Brandon called Tommy an absentee father, and posted a vid of Tommy knocked out in March after their fight.

We're told Tommy's hoping time heals all wounds, with his wedding to Brittany Furlan still months away.

Our sources say Tommy thought he and Brandon put the KO behind them when he decided not to press charges. We're told Tommy only resorted to airing out their feud on social media because Brandon's blocked his number and emails. 

All that said, we're told Tommy still tells friends he loves Brandon, and wants him at the wedding.

His female friend allegedly grabbed the camera when they bolted ... and law enforcement sources tell us the friend is under investigation ... for theft.

EXCLUSIVE

U.S. Olympic legend Kayla Harrison -- who won gold in judo in '12 and '16 -- is finally making her MMA debut this week ... and says she's ready to wreck shop. 

Kayla is a beast -- and she tells TMZ Sports it was hard to even lock down an opponent because people are scared to fight her. 

The good news ... Brittney Elkin has stepped up and will fight Kayla at the PFL event in Chicago on Thursday, and Kayla tells us she can't wait to scrap. 

"I have 500 judo matches under my belt," Kayla said ... "I have some experience -- just not with a locked cage behind me."

So, how will she handle taking a live punch to the face for the first time? 

"I'm kind of a bull. It's gonna take a lot more than 1 punch to take me down."

Breaking News

The place where boxing's GOAT Muhammad Ali lived -- and actually boxed -- is up for sale ... and it could be all yours for a cool $2.9 mil.

Ali's widow -- Lonnie -- is selling the Berrien Springs, Michigan farm that Ali bought in 1975, about 10 years before his Parkinson's diagnosis ... and it comes with a legit boxing ring in the gym.

The place is massive -- 81 acres -- and it features two houses, a bunch of garages, a steam room, a massage room and a full-length basketball court ... plus a deck overlooking the pond.

The coolest part? Its actual listing price is $2,895,037 ... 'cause Lonnie wanted to make sure Ali's 37 KOs in his career were included somewhere in the price tag.

Pretty cool, right?

Wilder vs. Joshua Could Happen In '18 ... Says Showtime Honcho

6/20/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The heavyweight fight everyone wants to see -- Deontay Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua -- could happen in the next 6 months ... says the man in charge of broadcasting the event.

TMZ Sports spoke to Stephen Espinoza -- Showtime's president of sports and event programming -- who tell us the "ball is rolling" on making the fight happen in 2018.

"Things are moving. Discussions are happening," Espinoza tells us.

Wilder and Joshua have been calling each other out publicly for the last year -- with Wilder recently saying he'd even fly to England to fight Joshua on his home turf.

Both guys seem down to fight -- it's just a matter of locking up a deal.

Espinoza tell us the fight would be massive -- bigger than Canelo Alvarez vs. GGG -- and only rivaled by Mike Tyson vs. Lennox Lewis in 2002 and the super fights of the 1980s.

Fingers crossed he's right!

Errol Spence Jr. Strip Clubs Have Best Food Greasy Hands, No Problem!

6/19/2018 3:57 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Head to the strip club for the girls ... and stay for the shrimp -- at least, that's what boxing star Errol Spence Jr. is saying.

The IBF welterweight champ -- one of the top pound-for-pound boxers in the world -- has become a bit of a partying connoisseur ... and he told us the most underrated place for food on the planet is -- your local gentlemen's club!!

"Strip club food is the best," Spence Jr. told us in NYC.

"Shrimp, chicken -- you can get a salad. Sometimes you get a steak. I mean, they got a whole kitchen back there!"

By the way, Errol's a perfect 24-0 in his boxing career with some big-time wins ... but he told us fighting at Jerry's World in his hometown would be the highlight of his resume.

Bet we can guess where the party would be afterward...

Tommy Lee Takes Ugly Shot at Son ... I Dropped $130k on Your Rehab!!!

6/19/2018 6:59 AM PDT

9:32 PM PT -- Brandon just responded to his dad's post ... "I thank my Dad for paying for my treatment. It's the best thing he has ever done for me. Today I am almost two years sober. Every day that goes by I feel ever more grateful. My clear mind has allowed me to do a lot with this time. So much so that I would like to offer to pay for his treatment."

Tommy Lee is taking the most disgusting shot yet in the war with his son, Brandon Lee -- bitching about all the money he's spent on raising him ... including the tab for rehab.

The Motley Crue drummer says he spent $130k to get Brandon treatment, another $40k on his 21st birthday ... and $10k on his own medical bills after Brandon knocked him out earlier this year. Tommy's finishing touch -- "Son acting like a victim on social media on father's day: Priceless."

Dad's clearly still fuming over the fact Brandon posted video on Father's Day showing Tommy out cold after their fight back in March -- but Dad's tweet takes it to a really ugly level.

Brandon's never gone public with any substance abuse issues, so IF it's true ... his own father just outed him. Not to mention the whole people in glass houses thing -- Tommy's battled addiction in the past, and even gone to rehab himself.

He might have locked up Dad of the Year, though, with the last braggadocious line of his angry tweet. Mic drop? Nice touch.

Evander Holyfield believes in the wisdom of Evander Holyfield ... which is why he wears T-shirts with quotes from Evander Holyfield

We spotted the champ out at Reagan National Airport -- and, while our photog wanted to talk about the World Cup, we couldn't help but notice the Real Deal's fashion statement. 

"When I was eight years old my coach told me I could be like Muhammad Ali. DREAMS DO COME TRUE -- Evander Holyfield."

The shirt also features a pic of a young Evander. 

Don't make fun of him -- when you become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, you can wear shirts with your face on 'em too!

Oscar De La Hoya I Paid GGG Millions To Save Canelo Rematch

6/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Oscar De La Hoya says he was so serious about saving the GGG vs. Canelo rematch, he shelled out millions of dollars of his own money to get the deal done. 

Remember, Oscar -- Canelo's promoter -- previously said Gennady Golovkin wanted a 50/50 revenue split with Canelo or he would NOT accept the fight. 

Oscar came on the "TMZ Sports" TV show and we asked what it finally took to get the deal done -- and the Golden Boy told us it came down to writing a big, fat check. 

"I actually came out with my own money to bridge the gap and make this fight happen," Oscar says. 

"GGG wanted a bigger piece of the pie. It was a matter of a few million dollars. I couldn't get it from Canelo's side because he was gonna stick to his guns ... so I had to come up with the difference."

Good thing he's rich.

EXCLUSIVE

Gabriel Rosado -- the real life pro boxer who fought Michael B. Jordan in "Creed" -- says he's ready to return the ring ... and he's got his sights set on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. 

32-year-old Rosado is a middleweight fighter who's squared up against the likes of Gennady Golovkin, Jermell Charlo and Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin

Rosado hasn't fought since Oct. 2017 -- but tells TMZ Sports he's "in talks" to make his comeback against Chavez Jr., the former WBC middleweight champ. 

"We might be out here in the Staples Center," Rosado says. 

Perfect location ... dude loves Hollywood

By the way, Rosado lost when he fought GGG, but the dude was a warrior ... fighting into the 7th round in one of the bloodiest fights of Golovkin's career. 

Rosado's corner wanted to stop the fight, but Gabriel wouldn't let 'em. Gotta admit, dude's got heart.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC champ T.J. Dillashaw agrees with Dana White ... CM Punk showed a lot of balls by getting into the Octagon -- but admits his performance was trash. 

T.J. joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs weeknights on FS1) -- where he talked about his upcoming rematch with Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227 in August. 

Even though the two have had bad blood in the past, T.J. says he respects Cody and anyone else who gets in the Octagon to compete ... including CM Punk. 

"Yeah, sure, he did not look good at all -- but he still went out there and did it ... respect."

There's a lot more with T.J. in the full interview which airs Monday night on "TMZ Sports."

Adrien Broner & Errol Spence Booty Club Dance Party ... Mostly For Broner

6/18/2018 6:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Welterweight champion Errol Spence absolutely brutalized a man on Saturday night and the happiest guy in the world about it was Adrien Broner ... who turned ALL THE WAY UP after the win.

Spence KO'd Carlos Ocampo in Dallas on Saturday ... and Sunday night he and Broner hit the hottest strip club in Texas -- V Live Dallas -- and kept the party going. 

Errol was chillin' ... but not Adrien, who celebrated like it was his KO, even taking the stage to hit the shoot dance one time, which we're sure all the dancers trying to make nail school tuition appreciated.

BTW -- Spence is from Dallas so it makes sense the hometown was showing him some love ... Adrien, of course, is from any place with music, bottles and strippers.
