Exclusive Details

0323-lil-wayne-punch-GIF-TMZ-03Lil Wayne's security viciously attacked a fan who mocked Weezy with his iPhone .... and it was all caught on video.

Wayne was scheduled to show up at midnight on Saturday to play a show at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL ... but the crowd became agitated when Wayne didn't get there until 3:30 AM.

According to people at the show, one fan used his iPhone to show off a scrolling message to the stage. Before Weezy arrived, the message said "Shut the f*** up and put on Weezy" ... but later it just read "F*** Weezy."

Wayne was spotted by the New Times Broward-Palm Beach pointing out the fan and sending one of his security people to deal with him.

We're told security carried the victim out of the club, but the club says no paramedics were called.

Lil Twist -- Justin Bieber's sometimes sidekick -- has just been nailed with 6 felonies for allegedly breaking into Kyle Massey's house, beating up his brother and stealing stuff from the apartment.

The L.A. County D.A. has charged Twist with making criminal threats, burglary, grand theft, battery and 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Besides being a huge Tyson fan, Game also has penchant for punching people ... including another rapper named 40 Glocc ... and mentioned that street fight in a post after getting the new ink. 

"Now when the judge ask me in court if I whooped 40 glock ass I can truthfully say no & blame it on @MikeTyson .... My right hand man lol."

And of course, he added the proper hashtag -- #MikeTysonPunchOut. 

As for 40 Glocc ... that beatdown went down in 2012 ... yet it seems to live on forever.

3/21/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Joseline Hernandez must not watch her own show -- which is the only explanation for her denying under oath she ever hit Althea Eaton.

Eaton is suing Hernandez over the insane reunion show brawl. During her deposition, Eaton's attorney asked Hernandez if she has any recollection of ever hitting Eaton. You gotta watch the video of the fight and then listen to her answers.  

So who are you gonna believe ... her or your lyin' eyes?

Virgin America Humiliated Me

And My Disabled Friend

EXCLUSIVE

Margaret Cho is going full blast on Virgin America ... claiming the airline humiliated her disabled friend.

Selene Luna -- a little person recovering from a debilitating hip condition -- opens for Cho. According to Cho, Luna was trying to pre-board a Virgin flight with her when she was rudely dismissed by a ticket agent and told to board with everyone else.

Luna claims the Virgin employee said pre-boarding for the disabled was discontinued and when an LAX employee spoke up on her behalf the Virgin worker just reiterated what she had said. 

A rep for Virgin America chalked the whole thing up to a miscommunication ... they say the airline absolutely offers pre-boarding for special needs guests -- which they believe was offered to Cho and Luna, but they curiously apologized nonetheless.

Cho and Luna are calling BS and say they'd take legal action if they had the money to fight a Goliath corporation.

Drake

Assaulted in Dubai Nightclub

3/18/2015 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake was manhandled at a club in Dubai, which triggered a melee that put the aggressor where he belongs ... on the ground.

Drake and his crew were at Movida nightclub Saturday night, along with a huge crowd ... Dubai does it big. Watch the video closely ... you'll see the guy grab the back of Drake's head and shove it down.

Drake is clearly pissed off, and gives the guy a death stare. But club security jumps in and gets the job done STAT.

BTW, Drake was in the country as a guest of the royal family. It's unclear if members of the family were on hand when Drake was assaulted.

Kyle Richards

When Real Housewives Wine

... It's Real, Bitch

3/14/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards is calling BS on some people in the TMZ newsroom who believe the whole wine-glass throwing scene on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" was fake.

Kyle and hubby Mauricio were leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills when our photog asked if it was one of those breakaway glasses ... because we thought the whole thing was staged.

Kyle was pretty convincing it was the real deal when her Lisa Rinna hurled the glass at her sister Kim.

And speaking of Kim, Kyle makes it pretty clear they're on the outs.  And listen closely when Mauricio chimes in ... sounds like he couldn't be happier.

Rocky had Mickey. Daniel had Mr. Miyagi. And now Laila Ali has a wise mentor to guide her if she squares off with Ronda Rousey ... with ex-champ Antonio Tarver formally offering to train Muhammad's baby girl.

Tarver -- a former 5-time boxing champ -- tells TMZ Sports he's been friends with Laila for years and strongly believes he could train her up to beat the UFC star in a boxing match. 

"She knows I got her back and front," Tarver says. 

In fact, he's even got a game plan for Ali, who hasn't stepped in the ring in 8 years -- "[Laila] needs a serious training camp and a tune up fight."

"I think it's time to dust off [the gloves] and you got my services." 

Tarver says Rousey is an "amazing athlete" -- but he's 100% confident he could train the 37-year-old back into face-bashing shape and get the biggest victory in female fight history. 

C'mon ladies ... let's make this happen.

Kyle & Kim Richards

Relationship May Be Beyond Repair

3/12/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Kim Richards FeudKyle and Kim Richards are sisters at war ... and it's way more personal than just a vicious dog attack.

There has been radio silence between the two -- with the exception of a brief encounter after a "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reunion show -- since Kim's dog attacked Kyle's daughter in November.

We're told Kyle is furious Kim hasn't 86'd her pit bull -- which has a long rap sheet and tore into 18-year-old Alexia's hand. 

But it goes deeper than puncture marks. Kim feels betrayed by her sis because she feels fellow housewife Brandi Glanville has been more attentive to her struggles with substance abuse than Kyle.

What galls Kyle is that she feels Kim is an ingrate ... Kyle says she and Mauricio have been a driving force all along in trying to keep Kim sober, and she feels Kim is using them as scapegoats to deflect responsibility for her addiction problems. 

Our "Housewives" sources say nothing is permanent, but they give a reconciliation little hope. 

Angie Stone

Daughter's Teeth Were Rotting

Before Fight Broke Out

3/11/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Angie Stone Daughter Assault Angie Stone's daughter definitely has a messed up grill after the fight that got Angie arrested, but the real reason her teeth fell out might be failure to root canal ... instead of a blow from her mother.

As TMZ first reported, Angie admitted to cops she hit Diamond with a metal jewelry stand in self defense. Diamond says the stand knocked out 2 teeth.

Sources close to Angie tell TMZ ... the teeth fell out because they'd been rotting out of Diamond's mouth long before the fight. In fact, Diamond cops to her teeth being rotten but tells us -- "It don't matter if my teeth were rotten or not ... I could have gotten a root canal, but she finished the job."

Diamond also disputes her mother's claim she was acting in self defense -- telling us the fight started with both women yelling ... but says Angie grabbed the stand to threaten her. She claims it only got physical when she threatened to call cops -- and Angie struck her in the face with the stand.

Diamond admits wrestling her mother to ground at that point, and says her brother had to break up the scrap. As we reported ... only Angie got arrested and booked for aggravated assault.
