EXCLUSIVE

Mally Mall Buys Girlfriend CarBeing on "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" just cost Mally Mall $250K  -- in the form of the brand new car he had to buy his girlfriend to repair their relationship after a full season of reality show BS.

Mally Mall just scooped up a 2014 Bentley Continental coupe for his gf Nikki Mudarris. We're told the rapper/producer's dodged most of the serious drama (as in, physical violence) through Season 1 -- but felt guilty Nikki had to deal with some cast gossip about him.

Pretty sweet trade off for Nikki ... who's gotta be used to drama, anyway. She manages a bunch of strip clubs in L.A and Las Vegas.

Strippers = Drama.

Blake Griffin is finally talking about the pimp slap he allegedly delivered at a Vegas nightclub -- saying he's very confident he will be exonerated.

The L.A. Clippers star spoke with reporters before practice Thursday -- saying, "I'm really not allowed to speak on [the case] ... but I'm very confident in the situation, so once I can [speak on it], I will."

When asked if facing a misdemeanor battery charge is "scary" -- Griffin replied, "I definitely wouldn't say scary. I feel more badly just for the fact that it's a distraction. I really don't know how big of a distraction it really is, but it is. So that's what I feel mostly bad about."

Chris Paul -- who was also at the club the night of the incident -- wouldn't open up about the case, but says the team has Blake's back ... "He's a teammate, he's a brother and we're always going to be there for him."

Investigators in the Blake Griffin pimp slap case have obtained nightclub security footage which shows a confrontation between the NBA star and his accuser ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the footage from Tao nightclub in Vegas shows Blake and his accuser Daniel Schuman in a heated situation -- but we're told the alleged slap was not captured by the security cameras. 

We broke the story ... Griffin has been charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly going all Zsa Zsa Gabor on Schuman on October 19th.  

In the moments following the incident, Schuman gave a report to Tao security saying Blake got physical with him because he thought Daniel was sneaking a cell phone pic. 

Blake's teammate DeAndre Jordan -- who was with Blake and several other Clippers at the club -- told us he NEVER saw Blake strike anyone that night (video below). 

As for Blake, he has yet to comment on the situation.

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Twist FightChris Massey has a swollen face and a gash on his head after a brawl with Lil Twist -- but he and his bro Kyle Massey aren't backing the bus over Justin Bieber's pal ... not yet, anyway.

We broke the story ... Chris claims he got robbed and beaten up by someone with brass knuckles at Kyle's home last week -- and Twist is now a felony robbery and battery suspect.

We got the Massey bros at LAX Wednesday and asked about the incident ... which landed Chris in the hospital.  For some reason they're going out of their way to go soft on Twist.

Seems a little late to kill him with kindness.

Blake Griffin

Clippers Star Charged

In Vegas Bitch Slapping

11/12/2014 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1112_blake_griffin_tmzBlake Griffin has been charged with a crime for allegedly slapping the crap out of a man inside a Las Vegas nightclub ...TMZ Sports has learned.

The incident went down last month when Blake was at Tao Nightclub. According to the alleged victim -- Daniel Schuman -- the Clippers superstar was upset by camera flashes in his face ... so he grabbed Daniel's phone and neck. Daniel says Blake squeezed his neck, and demanded he give up his phone.

According to docs -- obtained by TMZ Sports ... the Clark County D.A. has now charged Griffin with one count of misdemeanor battery. He faces 6 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine -- though a jail sentence is highly unlikely since Blake has no prior convictions for violent crimes.

Blake was with DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul that night. None of the other players were involved in the alleged incident.

Strictly 'Plutonic'

EXCLUSIVE

The woman attacked by Keyshia Cole in Birdman's L.A. penthouse says the singer was dead wrong to accuse her of banging Bird, because their relationship was "strictly plutonic."

Yes, the lawsuit is entertaining. You'll recall back in September Keyshia showed up at Birdman's
West L.A. building at 5 AM and found her Cash Money CEO/boyfriend there with Sabrina Mercadel.

According to the police report, Keyshia went crazy, scratching her face, beating her and screaming, "Who the f*** are you?  What are you doin' with my man?"

The lawsuit states ... Keyshia insinuated Sabrina was a hooker, saying, "You can get your money later," then slapping her on the butt.

Sabrina's lawyer repeatedly protests that his client was NOT in a romantic relationship with Birdman ... the attorney calls the relationship "plutonic."

The lawyer is in the law firm founded by the late, great Johnny Cochran.

NOFX Singer

Beaten Fan Gets Revenge

And It's Epic!

11/10/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

110714_nofx_kick_launchRevenge is a dish best served cold ... and if you're the dude who got kicked in the head by NOFX lead singer Fat Mike -- it's best served by kicking the crap out of the punk rock legend.

A fan named Alex got the chance to settle the score, after getting blasted in the face for putting his arm around Fat Mike during a show in Sydney. Shockingly, Alex took the blame.

So Mike invited the dude to the next show and invited him backstage, where Mike gave Alex a free kick. But truth be told ... Mike kinda wussed out when he saw Alex's boots.

The video is hilarious.

When you watch the video ... you see the bottles fly, and whatever was said just doesn't justify it.
