Azealia Banks

Ballistic On Delta

Calls Flight Attendant 'F***ing F***ot'

9/22/2015 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar9:50 AM PT -- A rep for Delta tells TMZ, "We are aware of the situation and are looking into it."

8:30 AM PT -- The eyewitness disputes Azealia's claim that the French man hit her in the face, insisting all he did was put his hand up for her to stop.


Azealia Banks went insane on a flight from New York to LAX Monday night, calling the flight attendant a "f***ing f***ot" ... and it's all on video.

A passenger sitting next to Banks tells TMZ, when the Delta flight landed just before 1:00 AM Tuesday, Azealia made a beeline for the front door. She had been sitting in seat 6A but a French couple in the 3rd row was blocking her exit as they pulled their luggage from the overhead bin.

The eyewitness says Azealia tried to squeeze by the couple when the French man put his hand out. Azealia, we're told, went nuts. The eyewitness says she spit in the man's face, punched him in the face and clawed at his shirt.

At that point we're told the flight attendant grabbed Azealia's bag and told her to calm down. She lost her balance, fell to the seat, stood up and then a tug-of-war over the luggage ensued. This is where the video begins.

Azealia demands to take her bag and leave, and eventually calls the flight attendant a "f***ing f***ot" -- a homophobic slur.

We're told the co-pilot came out and told Azealia the police were called. She then ran off the plane, dropping her cell phone.

Police caught up with Azealia at baggage claim and spoke with witnesses as well, but the French couple decided not to press charges because they were here on holiday and didn't want the hassle.

Azealia claims the French man actually hit her in the face. She adds, "I don't tolerate bitchassness and I don't tolerate men putting their hands on me."

Azealia has a history with the the word "f***ot" -- she uses it frequently on social media -- and earlier this year she explained why she gets a pass, in her mind.

London's Fashion Week turned into a contact sport when British model Jourdan Dunn ended up in the middle of a brawl ... complete with a nasty knock down punch!

Dunn and a couple of male friends were cruising out of Loulou's nightclub Monday night, and it appears a photog pissed off one of her pals. It's unclear exactly what started the fight, but check out the video -- it is crystal clear what ended it.

Let's just say, Jourdan doesn't need any bodyguards with friends like this.

UFC Legend Tank Abbott

I'll Fight Ronda Rousey

... No Chick Could Beat Me

9/22/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC icon Tank Abbott says there's NO WOMAN on Earth who could beat him in a fight -- Ronda Rousey included -- because at the end of the day ... "She's a girl."

Abbott went on a rant explaining why men are simply superior when it comes to combat -- saying Ronda would get rolled by Floyd Mayweather ... because she's got "all this emotional stuff" due to being a woman. 

That's when 50-year-old Tank took it a step further on his podcast -- saying he would beat ANY woman in a fight ... and he's willing to put his money where his mouth is. 

"I will fight any woman on this Earth for free," Abbott says.

"If I win, which is going to happen -- and you’re going to get bashed up good -- you have to make me a sandwich. If you win, I’ll give you $100,000."

Tank says there's one caveat -- "You can't be a tranny ... you gotta be a female. Born a female."

No word if Tank's had any offers -- but we're guessing there won't be a shortage of women looking to beat his ass after hearing this.

MMA star Phoenix Jones had a busy weekend -- winning his bout on Friday night ... and then BREAKING UP AN ATTEMPTED MURDER roughly 24 hours later. 

Jones -- real name Ben Fodor -- was out in Seattle early Sunday morning when he claims he witnessed 3 men attacking another guy outside of a bar ... one of the attackers allegedly had a gun. 

So Jones -- who moonlights as a real-life superhero -- says he jumped into action ... KOing the lead attacker who was allegedly pistol-whipping the victim while the other 2 men had been stomping his head. 

Jones says he called police -- and when they arrived, they arrested the suspect.

... After Loss to Stanford

9/21/2015 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-usc-football-getty-01Trouble in Troy ... with 2 USC football players BLOWING UP on each other after the Stanford game -- with multiple coaches and players rushing in to break up the altercation ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Multiple sources tell us... the incident went down as the team was in the tunnel at the Coliseum heading to the locker room after losing to Stanford 41-31 on Saturday night. 

We're told there was yelling and pushing between the two players -- and they each had to be physically restrained.  

After the spat, we're told Coach Steve Sarkisian scolded the players involved and other team members -- saying, "We just lost the game and you two are fighting each other?!"

Obviously, tensions were running high -- since the loss dropped USC from #6 to #19 ... but it's unclear if the players will face any sort of disciplinary action for the dust up.  

A spokesman for SC told us, "[we] checked with multiple personnel and no one can confirm this happened."

0918-xs-nightclub-vegas-GETTY-01.JPGupdate_graphic_red_barAccording to police docs, the stabbing went down at 7 AM on Labor Day ... which means it happened during the tail end of David Guetta's show. Skrillex and Diplo did not perform at XS until later that evening.update_grey_gray_barA violent fight was swept under the rug in Vegas over Labor Day, when 4 people were seriously stabbed night during a DJ's show at XS Nightclub.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, a huge fight involving around 20 people broke out in the middle of the show, leaving 4 with stab wounds. Our sources say it has all the markings of a gang fight. 

We're told the injuries were serious including a punctured lung and spleen but everyone survived -- one victim admitted to gang ties and didn't want to go forward with any charges.

However, law enforcement tells us they have arrested someone on 3 counts of attempted murder. That said, cops are having problems developing the case, because almost everyone they've tried to interview developed a case of amnesia. 

Terrell Owens

I Was the Victim of a Hate Crime

... Might Press Charges

9/18/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens could go from suspect to victim in that Starbucks altercation thanks to the video showing a heinous racist tirade ... and ultimately it may lead to a hate crime charge.

T.O. tells TMZ Sports he's been blown away by the reaction to the video we first posted ... showing a guy named Arman calling the ex-NFL great a "f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****" -- among other things. Owens says several people have contacted him and suggested he press charges against Arman for committing a hate crime.

You'll recall, Owens says Arman threw a cup full of liquid into his car, and when T.O. got out to confront him that's when things got racial. The language makes it seem like the attack was racially motivated. Translation: hate crime.

Arman denies throwing liquid into T.O.'s car, and maintains the whole incident started when Owens kicked him inside the Starbucks. 

Police initially investigated the incident as a battery against Arman, but with one phone call to cops ... T.O. could flip the script.

9/16/2015 3:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

50 Cent stepped inside a real life fight club, jumped in the ring ... and then got the joint hyped for a night of knockouts. 

50 gave fans and fighters a pep talk before performing Tuesday night at BX Fight Club -- a genuine, underground fight club in the Bronx. The club encourages locals to put on the gloves and get their aggression out in the ring, instead of on the street with guns.

One of the owners, BX Hova, says the plan is to keep kids out of trouble. His pal Fif kicked off the night with "What Up Gangsta?"

Check out the vid of 50 doing his thing, and the fighters doing theirs. 

Terrell Owens

Taunted With N-Word

'Spear-Chucking, Monkey-Ass Looking MF'

9/16/2015 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who filed a police report claiming Terrell Owens hurled a cup of hot coffee at him went on a racist tear during the altercation, screaming the n-word and calling him a "f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****."

TMZ Sports obtained video of a portion of the altercation between T.O. and the alleged victim, a guy named Arman.

Terrell tells us Arman got aggressive with him inside a Brentwood, CA Starbucks, threw a cup of liquid at him outside the shop and repeatedly used the n-word. 

We now know, on the subject of racial slurs, T.O. was telling the truth.

T.O. says after Arman threw a cup at him, the former football star returned the favor with his own cup of coffee. 

We spoke with Arman, who first denied using the n-word.  But when we told him we had the video he said he never put an "r" at the end ... "I use that word and it's very much accepted in the black community."

When we told Arman that we hear him say, "f***ing knuckle-running, spear-chucking, monkey-ass looking motherf*****," he said, he was "purposefully racist," adding, "I just wanted to make him mad and sad. I'm Middle Eastern and Muslim and not KKK."

Arman, who denied throwing a cup at T.O., said, "There's freedom of speech but there's not freedom of attack. He kicked me in the Starbucks."

And he said, "I don't want my name to be ruined with all my African-American friends because that's as racist as it gets."

Arman also says T.O. was being violent, saying, "You're lucky I don't whip your ass." Arman says, "I come from a very politically active family and community who has fought for the rights of any and every group that has ever been racially discriminated against."

Cops are investigating.

Ronda Rousey

Destroys Guy On

The Ellen DeGeneres Show

9/16/2015 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Don't push Ronda Rousey unless you're looking to get slammed to the ground ... that goes for guys too.

The executive producer of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" -- Andy Lassner -- learned that lesson the hard way when he got a little too chummy with the UFC champ ... seeming to get under Ronda's skin after giving her a push before their demonstration. 

She didn't just take him down, she performed her famous armbar on him ... getting him to tap out a couple of times after he was unable to break free from the painful move.

She really is the best.

49ers/Vikings Fans Brawl

Security Guard to the Rescue

... Hero to Be Honored

9/15/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

A pack of vicious and cowardly 49ers fans bashed in a Vikings fan's face during a chaotic melee outside the Monday night game, and if not for one brave security guard ... the Vikes fan might be dead.

The video of the brawl is heinous ... the Vikings fan is already down on the ground outside Levi Stadium when the Niners backers continue unloading on him -- kicking and punching him in the head and body. It's brutal.

But you also see the guard run into the middle of the fray -- even though he's way undersized -- and scramble around the victim. He eventually succeeded in breaking up the fight.

Honchos at the security company tell TMZ Sports their staffer, who was Johnny-on-the-spot, is one of their star employees ... so they're not shocked he stepped up. They also say they're planning to honor his heroism.

As for the parking lot attackers ... Santa Clara PD says they're still trying to ID the suspects, based on the video and witnesses.
