NeNe Leakes & Cynthia Bailey Here's The Truth About Kim vs. Kenya ... Our Truth, Anyway

7/31/2017 4:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes are not down with fake news, and they think that's what Kim Zolciak's pushing when it comes to her beef with Kenya Moore.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' duo at LAX ... and our photog peppered them about what really happened to make Kim charge at Kenya while shooting last week. 

You'll recall Kim went nuclear ... thinking Kenya brought up Kim's "injured son" during some intense trash talking. So, was Kim justified? Well, there's Cynthia and NeNe's version of events. And then there's Kim's.

Anyone smell another Kim rant coming?

WWE's Chris Jericho F-Bomb Altercation ... Outside NYC Show

7/31/2017 7:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

9:08 AM PT -- Chris just issued a statement to TMZ Sports saying, "David Z was a good friend of mine and I was mentally and emotionally shattered after paying tribute to him and essentially saying goodbye to him Friday night."

"I was not in a good state of mind at that time and instead of ignoring a pushy (aka rude) fan which is what I would usually do, I snapped. My apologies to all involved and God bless David Z."Chris Jericho just added another name to his list. 

The WWE superstar got into a heated shouting match with another man after an event in NYC on Friday night -- with the two cussing each other out right on the street ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

It all went down outside Irving Plaza, where Jericho had just appeared at a tribute show for musician David Z, who was killed in a recent bus accident.

Witnesses tell us multiple people approached Jericho outside the venue asking for pics and autographs -- and while he obliged at first, Y2J started to get frustrated and began to turn people down. 

That's when our video begins -- you can see Jericho and a guy who said he was a fan yelling at each other. 

The fan said he was just trying to congratulate Jericho on a recent WWE match -- but Chris wasn't having it and told the guy, "F*ck your ass."

More cussing ensued -- and as the fan walks away, you can hear Jericho tell his friend, "These guys are f*cking pussies."

Ultimately, everyone left without further incident. We've reached out to Chris for comment -- so far, no word back.

Daniel Cormier has a message for Jon Jones -- Congrats. 

D.C. wasn't in the best shape to talk after his loss to Jones at UFC 214 and left the Octagon after only a brief statement with Joe Rogan

But now, he's opening up ... and giving props to his biggest rival.

"Congratulations to Jon Jones and his team. They did a phenomenal job and got the victory."

Cormier also apologized to ref Big John McCarthy -- who called the fight in the 3rd round while Cormier was taking a flurry of uncontested shots to the head from Jones after a big head kick.

D.C. got into it with McCarthy after the stoppage in an emotional reaction to the loss.

"To Big John McCarthy, I would like to apologize for acting up with you. I am thankful for the time you gave me to try and defend myself and stay in the fight."

He concluded, "Again, congrats to Team Jones and Jackson Wink. Love you all. I'll see you soon."

Floyd Mayweather's Ex Blasts McGregor Dom. Violence Is Not a Joke

7/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


Floyd Mayweather's ex-GF is FURIOUS at Conor McGregor over a "trolling" stunt that mocked her domestic violence incident with Floyd ... saying he's shamelessly profiting from her pain.

The woman is Josie Harris -- who Floyd was convicted of attacking during a 2010 domestic violence incident at the boxer's Vegas home in front of their 3 kids. Mayweather spent 2 months behind bars for the attack.

McGregor "trolled" Floyd over the incident last week by wearing an NBA jersey of C.J. Watson -- the man Floyd accused Josie of secretly texting in 2010, which led to the violent altercation.

Josie wasn't laughing when she saw Conor's stunt -- and claims CM's doing nothing more than exploiting her trauma to promote his superfight with Floyd next month.

"[The stunt] demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional wellbeing and privacy of the victim of Mayweather’s dom. violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by victims of dom. abuse," Josie's attorney, Dan Friedlander, tells TMZ Sports

"On behalf of Josie Harris, her and Mayweather’s three children, and all victims of domestic violence, we ask that Conor McGregor refrain from capitalizing off of the trauma suffered by her and other victims of domestic abuse."


Dante Fowler Apologizes for Alleged Attack 'I'm a Better Person Than That'

7/26/2017 11:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

On Tuesday, Jacksonville Jaguars star Dante Fowler pled not guilty to attacking a man in a brutal parking lot incident.

On Wednesday Fowler was apologizing for the incident and saying it won't happen again.

As we previously reported, the 2015 1st round pick was arrested on July 18 in Florida for allegedly punching a man in the face during an altercation in the parking lot of an apartment complex. 

He was charged with battery and criminal mischief -- but later pled not guilty to the charges.

Fast-forward to Wednesday, when Fowler took the stage at a Jaguars media event and apologized to the team, the fans and the city of Jacksonville for "for my actions, for what happened, what went down."

He added, "I just wanna let people know and everybody know that's not me as a person. I'm a better person than that, and it won't happen again."

Fowler's apology isn't exactly an admission of guilt -- but he clearly feels he screwed up in some capacity. Sounds like someone who's hoping to cut a plea deal instead of digging in for a trial.

Tempers are flaring on the set of 'Little Women: Couples Retreat' after a white cast member called a black cast member a "monkey ass."

TMZ got this clip of Lifetime's "Little Women: LA" spin-off where Lila is basically asking to get dropped ... by repeatedly hurling the racial slur against Tonya Banks.

There's some tense moments of posturing and threats, before someone gets knocked off her high horse -- or high chair, in this case. Production sources tell us the loser in this scrap suffered a minor head injury and had to be hospitalized while shooting in Puerto Rico. 

Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' Medic, Please! VIP Scuffle Cut Me Deep

7/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Magro from 'Jersey Shore' needed stitches to repair his sliced and bloodied hand after a rough night in a Las Vegas club.

TMZ obtained a shot of Ronnie's messed up left mitt -- he walked away from the fight with what looks like 5 lacerations. As we first reported ... Ronnie sustained the injuries early Friday morning in Tao Las Vegas.

Sources connected to Ronnie say he was in VIP when a crowd spilled into the area around him ... and as he tried to shield her, someone threw a bottle or glass which shattered on his hand. A rep for Tao tells a slightly different story -- saying there were no other individuals involved, and Ronnie just accidentally broke a bottle in his hand. 

Either way, Ronnie didn't realize he was cut -- booze numbs, after all -- until his gf pointed out he was bleeding on her. Security at TAO gave him a few bandages and suggested he get stitches.

He initially blew off that advice, but we're told Ronnie gave in Friday afternoon and got stitches.

Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' Bloody Mess in Vegas

7/21/2017 11:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:25 PM PT -- A rep for Ronnie says he was at TAO when a fight broke out. He wasn't involved, but it got outta control ... and he was attempting to cover his gf when someone threw a bottle or glass. We're told it shattered on Ronnie's hand, and that's the reason for all the blood ... on both of them.

TAO has a slightly different version of events -- its rep says no one else was involved in the incident, and claims Ronnie simply broke a bottle he was holding. The club also says an on-site EMT treated Ronnie.

We'd say no blood, no foul but ... Ronnie from "Jersey Shore" had some kind of bloody encounter in Vegas early Friday morning, and his girlfriend was clearly none too pleased.

An eyewitness who took this photo tells TMZ he saw Ronnie and the woman at around 1:15 AM coming out of a bathroom at The Venetian hotel and casino. He says Ronnie was soaked in blood with a plastic bag wrapped around his left hand.

The woman was also covered in blood, although the eyewitness says it appeared to him the blood was not the result of a fight between the 2 of them. It also seemed she was uninjured.

We're told security was flanking Ronnie and escorted him to an exit. It's unclear if security was trying to protect him or throw him out of the hotel.

We reached out to Ronnie and his rep ... so far no word back.

Oscar De La Hoya: If I Couldn't Beat Floyd Conor Has No Chance

EXCLUSIVE

Oscar De La Hoya says the only way Conor McGregor can beat Floyd Mayweather is with a flying kick to the head ... 'cause there's absolutely ZERO chance he'll out-box the Money Man. 

ODLH says he "wishes" McGregor was on Mayweather's level, but he's simply not -- and tells TMZ Sports if he couldn't beat Floyd during his own boxing heyday, McGregor has no real shot. 

That said, Oscar does dish out some advice for Conor on how to fight Floyd ... but he doubts it's gonna help. 

FYI, Floyd and Oscar fought back in 2007 -- Mayweather won by split decision.
