Breaking News


It appears Wendell Pierce got just as good as he gave in his alleged fight with a Bernie Sanders supporter in Atlanta ... now that we see his mug shot.

TMZ broke the story ... "The Wire" and 'Odd Couple' star got arrested and booked for battery Saturday when he -- a staunch backer of Hillary Clinton -- got into it with a woman who's voting for Sen. Sanders.

Pierce allegedly pushed the woman's boyfriend, then went after the woman ... grabbing her hair and smacking her in the head.

It's clear in the mug shot -- Wendell has scratches on his nose and upper lip. His reps have been silent since the arrest.


Cris 'Cyborg' Justino I Don't Hate Ronda But I'll Knock Her Ass Out!

5/13/2016 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cris "Cyborg" Justino says it's destiny for her to fight Ronda Rousey -- and says when the two finally meet, she's gonna knock Ronda the hell out. 

Cyborg is in Brazil -- where the Brazilian native is gearing up for her UFC debut Saturday night. We're told more than 16,000 people attended the weigh-in -- the largest weigh-in crowd in combat history. 

But in footage obtained by TMZ Sports, Cyborg is so confident she's gonna beat Leslie Smith at UFC 198 tomorrow, she's already looking ahead to Rousey. 

"I'm going to K.O. Ronda. Yeah, for sure," Cyborg says. 

But the most interesting part, Cyborg says she doesn't "hate" the UFC legend -- she claims the animosity stems from frustration from not being able to fight her in the past. 

Cyborg accuses Ronda of running from her -- and says all it will take is one call from Ronda to Dana White, and it's on. 

Fingers crossed ... 

Kendra Wilkinson Feud Still On ... Holly's Not Loyal

5/13/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendra Wilkinson's not waving any white flags in her war with Holly Madison ... but she is blaming hormones for her XXX tweets at her ex-Playboy pal.

We got Kendra outside FOX News Thursday and she explained why she's on the attack, and not planning to back down.

Earlier, she went after Holly on Twitter for dissing Hugh Hefner in a People article. The tweets were extremely graphic, and Kendra's since deleted them.

0512_kendra-wilkinin-tweet-SUBBut the damage is done for Holly, who tells us she doesn't want to be part of a fight where "one woman lives to demoralize and degrade another woman."

She added a jab of her own -- "For those with unresolved issues, therapy works."

5/12/2016 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlamagne Tha God let former boxing champ Shawn Porter do something rappers have wanted to do to Charlamagne for years ... punch him in the face ... in a live sparring match in NYC yesterday.

It all went down at Gleason's boxing gym on Wednesday afternoon ... and we're told the whole thing was the idea of Shawn's dad and trainer, Kenny, who's pretty good friends with Mr. Tha God.

Check out the clip -- Charlamagne isn't exactly Sugar Ray Robinson in there, but gets in enough good shots to not look like a newbie.

BTW -- Porter is training for a huge title fight against Keith Thurman later this month ... by fighting a guy who sits down for a living.

Good luck.

Jeremy Roenick Bieber's a Fighter Would Beat Orlando Bloom's Ass

5/10/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't underestimate Justin Bieber -- 'cause if push comes to shove with Orlando Bloom (again), NHL legend Jeremy Roenick says he's taking the Biebs ALL DAY. 

Turns out, Roenick is a huuuge Justin Bieber fan ... like, big ... and says JB's got too much going on in his life to worry about Bloom getting cozy with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez again. 

Remember, Bloom and Bieber got physical over a woman back in 2014 -- when an altercation broke out at a restaurant in Ibiza. 

Well, Roenick says if the two come to blows again ... Bloom better watch his ass 'cause Justin's bigger and stronger than ever.  

Jeremy also issues some dating advice for the Biebs -- don't worry about one girl ...  there are too many fish in the sea and they all want to bang you. 

Ja Rule Smacks Up Fan For Throwing Beer Can

5/10/2016 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ja Rule was so furious about getting a beer can to the dome, he stopped his show to find the person who hurled it ... and then slapped the hell out of the culprit. 

We got this video of Ja performing at Harrah's Pool After Dark in Atlantic City last weekend. When the can flew out of the crowd he was only four songs into the show, but brought everything to a halt.

He immediately offered a $1,000 reward, and apparently it worked. Someone dropped a dime on the can tosser, and then Ja Rule went to work.

Watch the video ... it's a lose-lose for the fan. Lost your beer AND got humiliated on video.

Exclusive Details

Stitches is apologizing -- sort of -- for punching one of his fans, and even going all out to make things right with the guy.

The swift response came after Stitches said he realized the fan, at Voltage Lounge in Philly, meant no harm -- he reached up and slapped Stitches in the stomach. The rapper got pissed and struck back with a left hook.

Cashius Clay (for real), Stitches' manager, tells TMZ the rapper knows he was in the wrong, but adds Stitches reacted how anyone else would have -- especially after someone pulled a gun during a recent gig in Canada.

Stitches already reached out to the fan on FaceTime, and hooked him up with tix to an upcoming show in Miami. We suggest he keep his hands to himself this time.

Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber had to regulate on Desiigner in the packed 1 OAK nightclub when the rapper's performance spilled into the VIP section ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in the NYC hot spot tell us 19-year-old Desiigner -- recently signed to Kanye West's label -- was putting on a hell of a show Thursday night, and Justin was watching from the VIP area.

We're told it was all good until Desiigner got "a little too hyped" ... started jumping around and "stomped" multiple times on Justin's feet. That's when JB flexed on him.

We're told Desiigner immediately turned around and said "My bad."

As for social media buzz the rapper got kicked out -- not true. We're told Desiigner finished his set. He was only escorted out because he's under 21, and has to leave once he's done performing.

5/5/2016 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Ronda Rousey went ballistic on fellow UFC superstar Paige VanZant at a VIP party -- dropping all sorts of F-bombs -- all because Paige congratulated Holly Holm ... this according to Miesha Tate

Tate appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience" Thursday and told the story ... saying VanZant came up to her and told her the entire shocking encounter. 

According to Tate, Ronda was seeking her out at the party -- furious that Paige would "cross her" by congratulating Holm after she beat up Ronda back in November. 

Miesha says Paige was shocked -- because she hadn't ever seen that side of Rousey before. Tate says she's never been a Rousey fan ... and wasn't surprised by her behavior. 

TMZ Sports has spoken multiple sources who confirm Tate's account of the events. 

We reached out to Ronda's camp -- but they declined to comment.

DeMarcus Cousins Brother Tased In Club Fight ... DeMarcus Pulled From Melee

5/5/2016 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


1:50 PM PST -- We just got new video showing the ENTIRE altercation -- and it's even crazier than we thought. You can see DeMarcus at the beginning of the fight -- but then he quickly disappears, as we previously reported.


The brother of NBA star DeMarcus Cousins was tased and arrested for fighting in a Tampa nightclub early this morning ... but we're told DeMarcus was pulled away from the fracas before cops got involved. 

Both DeMarcus and Jaleel Cousins had been partying at The Drynk SoHo (see pic of the two below) when things got heated with club security. 

FYI, Jaleel was a center for the University of South Florida basketball team. He just completed his senior season. 

Sources inside the club tell us the brothers tried to get into the DJ area but security was shutting them down -- and that's when the chest-puffing began. 

In footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see Jaleel throwing a haymaker punch -- while chaos ensues around him. We're told someone in DeMarcus' crew grabbed the Sacramento Kings star almost immediately and smartly rushed him outside. 

Cops rushed in and tried to take Jaleel into custody -- but he allegedly resisted so cops busted out the taser and shocked him into submission. He was eventually arrested for misdemeanor battery and resisting arrest. 

A police spokesperson told us, "There was no indication of any involvement by DeMarcus Cousins."


Alec Baldwin BALLISTIC in Bev Hills ... SHUT UP!!!

5/4/2016 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alec Baldwin exploded in anger Tuesday, getting in a photographer's face and berating him for shooting Baldwin's wife.

Baldwin and Hilaria were in Bev Hills when he unleashed on the photog with ear-shattering volume, ordering him to "shut up."

It's unclear what preceded Baldwin's tirade, but he tells the photog in no uncertain terms his wife is out of bounds for the paparazzi ... interesting for sure, because Hilaria is a prolific Instagram user who chronicles her life on the app. She's also a correspondent for "Extra."

It's even more interesting ... Baldwin wrote an essay where he said he was moving from New York to California because he can't stand the paparazzi presence in the Big Apple. He wrote in New York Magazine, "L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal."

The incident occurred in a very public part of town ... Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.

We reached out to Baldwin's rep ... so far no word back.

Minnie Driver Neighbor War Flares Up!! Cops Have to Break It Up

5/4/2016 6:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0504-minnie-driver-tmz-05Minnie Driver's block turned into a battlefield when her neighbor's delivery truck parked in front of her Hollywood Hills driveway ... and cops had to keep the peace.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... officers were called out Tuesday afternoon when Driver went ballistic on Daniel Perelmutter -- a guy she's had beef with before. We're told Perelmutter got a delivery, but the truck made the mistake of blocking off Minnie's driveway.

Minnie and Daniel were screaming at each other so loudly, someone called police. Officers calmed down the situation and told them this was, ironically, a civil matter to be settled in court.

We're told they're doing just that Wednesday morning. These two squared off last year in a land dispute that got so bad ... she got a restraining order against him.

Take that Hatfields and McCoys.
