50 Cent Find Me In Da Fight Club

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.

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.

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.

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.

Diddy Won't Face ANY Criminal Charges In UCLA Football Fight

9/9/2015 3:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-diddy-tmz-01P. Diddy will NOT be charged with a crime in the UCLA football melee ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ reported, Diddy got extremely angry after his son Justin was sent home from football practice by Sal Alosi, the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the team.

Diddy and his son went back to the school where things got hot and the mogul allegedly swung a kettlebell at the coach.

Sources familiar with the case tell us, the L.A. City Attorney will conduct an informal office hearing where Diddy will appear, accompanied by his lawyer, Mark Geragos, and others involved in the incident. The hearing is set for October 15th.

The hearing officer could simply warn Diddy not to fly off the handle again, or he could ask him to attend a few anger management classes.  

This is a big victory for Diddy. Remember, he was arrested for felony aggravated assault and making terrorist threats. The D.A. previously rejected the felony case.

X's son Xavier wants to jump-start his own music career with cash, and the cash cow was laying right in his closet. DMX lived with Xavier and his mom until 2007, when the woman threw X out. He left lots of stuff behind, including the platinum records.

0908-dmx-recod-plaque-selling-EBAY-01Xavier put precious platinums for the albums "And Then There Was X" and "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood" on eBay for a total of $3,000.

X is livid, telling us it's his stuff and not Xavier's. What's more, DMX says it shows supreme ingratitude ... he says he took his baby mama out of the projects and got her a house next to Martha Stewart's.

Blood of My Blood just got real.

Chanel West Coast I Can Kick Faux Cops And Get Away with It

9/6/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Young Money rapper Chanel West Coast won't be charged with assaulting and battering a security guard in a drunken stupor, despite the fact that most of it is right there for all to see on video.

The video is epic -- the "Ridiculousness" star was booted from 1 OAK non compos mentis last month after she allegedly started a fight inside. But the fighting didn't stop there, because she went wild on a security guard, kicking and punching him.

After failed negotiations, she was cuffed and arrested.

But the forgiving guard has decided to let bygones be bygones, so charges will not be filed.

It may not be over. Chanel posted pics of her bruises from the incident, claiming she was unnecessarily roughed up.

'RHOA' Cynthia Bailey Possible Demotion ... For Kicking Porsha

9/1/2015 4:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0901-cynthia-bailey-housewives-TMZ-10Cynthia Bailey didn't even make it a full season, and she's already on the verge of following in Porsha Williams' footsteps -- as in, getting demoted. 

In the wake of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fight -- where Cynthia kicked Porsha -- production sources tell us show honchos are reviewing footage of the incident and weighing their options for discipline.

TMZ broke the story ... Porsha and Cynthia got into it while shooting a scene on a boat -- Porsha called Cynthia a bitch repeatedly ... until CB snapped and unleashed a kick

We're told producers want to see just how bad (or good, for ratings) the fight was ... and there's a possibility Cynthia could be demoted to the dreaded 'friend of the cast' title -- as opposed to full cast member. And yes, that would mean a cut in pay too.

As for why PW's neck isn't on the line? We're told there's no rule against antagonizing -- hell, that's the meat of the show -- but getting physical crosses the line.

This is old hat for Porsha ... who got bumped down after her epic Kenya Moore brawl. She's hoping to earn a promotion this season.
