Justin Bieber Hold Me Back! Bear Hugged Post-Brawl

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber was still fired up when passersby managed to break up his Cleveland brawl.

We just obtained this video, shot seconds after the first fight clip -- a Golden State Warriors fan grabbed Justin from behind and pulled him off the dogpile.

Watch, you can tell Justin was still itching for a fight -- but witnesses tell us no more punches were thrown. The huge guy he was fighting is off in the background.

JB just posted a pic -- letting everyone know his beautiful face is unscathed.

Justin Bieber Throws Down in Huge Fist Fight!

6/9/2016 8:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber got into an all-out street brawl with a guy much bigger than him Wednesday night in Cleveland.

TMZ obtained this video of Bieber, shot shortly after 11 PM, outside his hotel in downtown Cleveland -- he was face-to-face with the guy, who threw a light blow at Justin's head. That's when Justin uncorked a blow right to his face ... and then it's on!

Several people were standing nearby and tried to jump in, but the fight ends up spilling to the ground.

It's unclear what started the scrap. Bieber was in town for the game 3 of the NBA Finals, and was wearing a Cleveland Cavaliers shirt ... so it could be post-game trash talk. Also, witnesses say Bieber was getting peppered with requests for photos, and we know how he feels about that.

Overall ... we'd say Justin held his own, though he ended up on the bottom of the pile.

EXCLUSIVE

0609-richie-vandenberg-GETTY-01Australian rules football legend Richie Vandenberg got hit in the face with a glass at a NY bar early Thursday morning ... but despite his injuries, he refused medical attention, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Here's what we know ... 39-year-old Vandenberg -- who captained the Hawthorn Football Club from '05 to '07 --  was partying at the Catch bar in NYC with a lady friend when someone came up to her and asked her to dance. 

We're told she refused... and Richie came over to help get her point across, when the dude smashed Richie in the face.

Police were called and the suspect -- a 32-year-old man -- was arrested. Cops say Richie suffered a laceration to the forehead but didn't want to go to the hospital.  

Australian rules football players are tough. 

BTW, Vandenberg was a stud during his time with the squad ... and was hailed as turning Hawthorn into one of the most dominant clubs in the AFL. 

Deion Sanders Son Accused In Brutal High School Attack

6/9/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0609-deion-sanders-getty-01A Dallas high school employee claims Deion Sanders' teenage son brutally attacked him on school grounds ... beating him so badly, he needed spinal surgery ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The alleged victim is John Darjean -- who claimed Sanders was breaking school rules in Sept. 2015 by using his cell phone on campus during school hours ... and he tried to confiscate the phone.

But instead of handing it over, Sanders allegedly got violent -- giving Darjean serious enough injuries that he was transported to a local hospital ... and later needed spinal surgery. 

The insurance company that paid out his workers comp claim is now suing Deion and his ex-wife Pilar -- claiming they knew their son had a history of reckless conduct and never did anything to curb his behavior. The insurance company claims Deion and Pilar should reimburse them for the $26k payout. 

We reached out to Deion for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Amber Heard Ex GF Claims Domestic Violence ... Overblown

6/8/2016 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0608-tasya-van-ree-amber-heard-GETTY-TMZ-01Amber Heard's ex girlfriend, Tasya van Ree, says Amber's domestic violence arrest was ridiculous because it was never that violent.

TMZ broke the story, Amber was arrested at the Seattle International Airport in 2009 after Amber allegedly grabbed and hit Tasya's arm. She was booked, her mug shot was taken, but ultimately the D.A. declined to prosecute.

Sources close to Amber tell us both her and Tasya say Amber's arrest was simply a "lover's spat," and all she did was grab onto her arm.  

Tasya says she told cops she didn't want Amber arrested, but our law enforcement sources say Tasya was upset and unsympathetic to Amber when she was cuffed and taken away.

Van Ree says the cops were not even going to take action until they realized she and Amber were domestic partners. She says the cops had "mysogynistic attitudes" and appeared to be "homophobic."

Amber Heard 911 Caller Johnny's Bloodied Her Before ... I Had to Break the Cycle

6/8/2016 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0608_IO-Tillett-Wright_amber-heard-instagram-tmzAmber Heard's friend who was on the phone the night Johnny Depp allegedly attacked -- says she witnessed firsthand the effects of multiple other attacks ... and had to stop the pattern of violence. 

Artist iO Tillett Wright says, "I called 911 because she never would. Because every time it happened, her first thought was about protecting him." She claims Depp repeatedly apologized for other violent incidents and repeatedly swore to "never to do it again."

In a blog post, she writes about an alleged attack in December where Amber woke up with her pillow covered in blood. Wright says, "I know this because I went to their house. I saw the pillow with my own eyes. I saw the busted lip and the clumps of hair on the floor."

She describes Johnny as a dear friend and "brother" who'd helped her through dark times -- but says she needed to call him out after what she heard the night of May 21.

"I was on the phone with both of them and heard it drop, heard him say, 'What if I pulled your hair back?' and her scream for my help, I wondered like so many times before if I should break the code of silence that surrounds celebrities and invite the police into the situation."

Ultimately, Wright says, "I had to stand up for my friend." 

Depp has denied ever touching Amber.

Exclusive Details

0422_gilbert_arenas_tmz-2Gilbert Arenas says he's sorry he said "f*** my kids" during an argument with his ex -- but says he didn't mean it, and blames Laura Govan for "setting me up."

An audio recording of the conversation was released on "The Breakfast Club" radio show this morning -- and while Gilbert admits it's authentic, he says he did not know he was being recorded. 

"Yes I said it ... NOT in the meaning as a #deadbeatdad BUT the meaning of a man who was frustrated of fighting a evil demon everyday," Arenas said in an Instagram statement. 

"I was letting [Govan] know NOT even the kids will save u. She thinks she can [leverage] me and the kids, she uses the kids to fight her battles."

Gilbert says he believes Govan leaked the tape -- but says he does not plan to take any sort of legal action over it. 

In fact, Gilbert says he will not move to strip Laura of custody because he believes "kids need both parents in they lives." 

He added that he loves all of his kids.

Shane Mosley Blasts Amir Khan You Suck Too Hard to Fight at Olympics

6/4/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-shane-mosley-amir-khan-TMZ-01Shane Mosley is dashing the hell out of Amir Khan's Olympic dreams -- saying it would be DUMB AS HELL to fight at the '16 Games in Rio after the way he was brutally K.O.'d back in May. 

FYI, Khan has expressed serious interest in fighting for Pakistan at the summer games -- after the International Boxing Association finally voted to allow pros to compete for gold. 

But after watching Khan nearly get decapitated by Canelo Alvarez last month, Mosely tells TMZ Sports, the dude needs to rethink his plan. 

"I don’t think after getting knocked the f*** out Khan should be talking about representing anyone."

Damn.

As for Mosely, the boxer says he WILL be in Rio for the games, but not to fight ...

"I think there are better people than me to represent the USA. I will be in Rio for the games though. And having a lot of sex on the beach."

Good plan. 

Kenya Moore BF Kicking in Door Caused Breakup

6/2/2016 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-kenya-moore-breakup-matt-jordan-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-03Kenya Moore survived a nightmare vacation, and a blowout argument with her boyfriend before they finally broke things off.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star's now ex-bf, Matt Jordan, announced their breakup, but left out the details of their Memorial Day weekend in Mexico ... where, according to sources close to the couple, they got into a huge dispute. We're told Kenya locked herself in their hotel room, but Matt got mad and "kicked the door in and broke it."

When he got in, the argument got more heated -- he repeatedly called her "bitch" and "c***" ... according to our sources.

We're told they actually flew back to Atlanta on the same flight, but Kenya changed their seats. Once they landed, Matt grabbed her luggage ... and to avoid a scene, Kenya went back to her place in a separate car from Matt. But things blew up again when he showed up to her house and dumped her bag on the driveway, and that was it.

We're told it never got physical, but Kenya was fed up with the verbal abuse ... and pulled the plug on the relationship. We've reached out to Matt, but no word back yet.

Amber Heard I Still Love Johnny And Don't Want to Bury Him

EXCLUSIVE

0531-amber-heard-tmz-02

Amber Heard is not going through with her promise to belatedly file a police report ... because she says she still loves Johnny Depp and "doesn't want to bury him" ... so say sources connected with Amber.

As we reported, Amber's lawyer, Samantha Spector, vowed Tuesday Amber would file a police report because she was being trashed in the media, thanks to Johnny and his team.

We're told Amber has now had a change of heart, saying she believes a police report would trigger an arrest and prosecution, and she doesn't want to set the wheels in motion for People vs. Depp.

Sources connected with Johnny scoff at Amber's sympathy, saying she timed the allegations to hurt his new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," which tanked.

Heard claims she still loves the man she now says repeatedly brutalized her.

Amber Heard Cops Interviewed by LAPD Brass We Saw No Injuries

6/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-amber-heard-johnny-depp-tmz-07The 2 officers who interviewed Amber Heard the night she was allegedly attacked by Johnny Depp have spoken with LAPD brass, and our sources say they are adamant ... Amber had no visible injuries.

The officers spoke with superiors Tuesday afternoon and said they had no idea Johnny Depp was involved at all -- the 911 call came in under the name Heard, and they did not associate her with Depp.

The 2 cops say the information they had when they knocked at her door was only that there was a domestic dispute. Amber opened the door just a crack but would not let them in. They questioned her through the door and she said it was a simple verbal argument with her husband. She never mentioned Depp by name. 

The officers told her they needed to make sure she wasn't declining help under duress, so they insisted on coming in and speaking with her. Amber obliged, and the officers say they looked at her closely enough to determine there were no marks, swelling or bruising on her face or other exposed parts of her body. 

Our LAPD sources say precisely what several doctors told us ... if Johnny threw an iPhone at her pitcher style, and then followed up with hair-pulling and hitting, there would have been swelling at the very least, and most probably some immediate bruising or redness. The officers saw nothing.

The cops insist if they had seen any sign of injury they would have taken a report and tracked down the husband.
