4/5/2016 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports caught up with Paige Tuesday afternoon in L.A. ... and seeing as she punches people in the face for a living ... we asked her to break down the Derek Wolfe bar fight footage.

Broncos' Derek Wolfe Takes Shots to Dome in New Vid Of Nightclub Fight

4/5/2016 10:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Broncos star Derek Wolfe says someone clocked him with an object -- possibly a bottle -- during that nightclub brawl ... and new video of the incident could back him up.

TMZ Sports just got this new angle of the fight that went down in a Denver nightclub Saturday night. This footage shows more of the fight, and it looks like someone does strike the Super Bowl champ in the head multiple times.

It's unclear what, if anything, was in the attacker's hand.

According to his agent Mike Simon ... Derek "did not provoke the fight. He was trying to protect a friend. His recollection is that he was hit from the back with an object when he wasn't looking."

As TMZ Sports first reported, police were NOT called to the scene during or after the brawl. Witnesses said Wolfe's face was bleeding has he left the club.

Columbus Short Forced Out of House! 'Wife' Claims Drunken Attacks

4/5/2016 10:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-stefans-short-instagram-tmz-01Columbus Short is boozing hard and terrorizing the woman he lives with ... IF you buy her version of what's happening in their home -- which a judge did -- but Columbus says she's delusional.

Karin Short was granted a temporary restraining order against the ex "Scandal" star on Monday, and Columbus was ordered to move out. In docs, Karin says Columbus' drunken tirades happen at least 3 times a week. She says during one incident he kicked down the door to their bedroom where she was hiding.

But Karin says the last straw was when Columbus allegedly threatened her 18-year-old son, saying he would "whoop his ass like a man." She tells TMZ she doesn't want a divorce -- the TRO is tough love so Columbus realizes he needs to get treatment for his drinking.

For his part, Columbus also doesn't want a divorce, because he tells us THEY'RE NOT MARRIED. In fact, he dismisses her accusations as total BS.

The allegations could be damaging for Short, who is already on probation for felony assault.

Broncos Star Derek Wolfe Throws Vicious Haymaker In Nightclub Brawl

4/5/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Broncos star Derek Wolfe tried to knockout someone during a Denver nightclub brawl, and TMZ Sports has insane footage of him uncorking the punch.

The video shows Wolfe in a black shirt with a chain around his neck, and at 6'5", 285 pounds he dwarfed everyone around him inside VIE Nightclub on Saturday night. 

Wolfe's massive body is shielding the action when the fight starts, but witnesses say a guy was talking trash to Wolfe and his friends. When the pushing and shoving starts some much smaller people feebly try holding back Derek.

Remember, this is the guy who told Tom Brady he was going to "eat his kids."

Wolfe definitely swung HARD into the scrum, but it's unclear if he connected with anyone. Witnesses tell us Derek got hit in the face with a glass bottle, and left the club bloodied. Police were not called to the club.

We reached out to Wolfe's reps ... so far no word back.

Derek was in a much better mood earlier in the night when he mugged with the chefs at a nearby restaurant.


Kylie Jenner Brawling Grandpa Was Boozing ... Not Thirsty for Fame

4/4/2016 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The melee that erupted around Kylie Jenner -- between a defensive grandfather and photogs -- was fueled by alcohol ... according to the grandpa's family.

We spoke to the mother of one of the 3 girls who were waiting for Kylie outside The Nice Guy Saturday night ... when the girls' grandfather opened a can of whoopass on the paps.

Sporting overalls and a cig hanging out of his mouth -- gramps looked like he was straight out of central casting, but his daughter says the fight wasn't an attempt to grab the spotlight ... it's just that he was drunk.

The mother, who wants to remain anonymous, tells us grandpa had a few drinks before going out, and then some more at a bar in Hollywood. She says the family had gone to The Nice Guy specifically to see KJ, because her 11-year-old daughter and her 2 friends are obsessed.

She says the girls are now grounded from following Kylie because she doesn't want people thinking they're stalkers. As for grandpa -- she insists he's normally a "warm, caring man."

He was NOT grounded.

Kylie Jenner Stops for Young Fans, But Grandpa Brawls with Photogs!

4/3/2016 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner finally gave three young girls the selfies they'd been dying to get -- a totally sweet moment -- and then their grandfather got into a melee with photogs capturing that moment. So sweet.

Kylie was rushing out of The Nice Guy when the girls popped up and took their shot, and this time KJ obliged. But check out the video, 'cause the girls had their own protection this time.

After what went down at Craig's last week, it looks like grandpa -- the guy in overalls -- wasn't gonna let his little angels get shoved around. The brawl is insane, and gramps was the one who refused to cool down! 

Maybe Kylie was right to just keep it moving.

50 Cent Keeps Cool (Mostly) As Club Gig Gets Violent

4/3/2016 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

50 Cent took a big swipe at one of his fans when a bunch of fights broke out around him during a nightclub appearance.

Fiddy was performing at Stage 48 in NYC on Saturday night -- standing right in the middle of the crowd -- when several people started pushing and shoving. 50 stood his ground and tried to keep performing, until things got out of hand.

In the video, you see one person reach up and grab Fif's t-shirt. Bad move on that person's part, 'cause the rapper reacted with the quickness.

Props to 50 though for trying to calm down the brawling fans. Can't a man make a few dollars in peace ... so he can get out of bankruptcy?? Damn.

3/30/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Mob Wives" star Drita D'Avanzo is off the hook for kicking her neighbor's ass over a parking spot ... all because the neighbor refused to snitch. 

Drita was supposed to appear in a NYC courtroom Wednesday morning in the case, but we've learned the D.A. has declined to prosecute her. We're told the the D.A.'s office dropped the matter because Drita's neighbor, Mary Bratti, refused to cooperate.

It's an interesting twist ... considering there's clear video of Drita and Bratti brawling on Bratti's doorstep.

Drita was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after the brawl, but now she's been spared, thanks to mob rules -- not ratting to cops.

0325_Porsha-Williams_Real-Housewives-of-ATL-logo'Real Housewives of Atlanta' producers let a giant skeleton out of Porsha Williams' closet at the final reunion show taping ... raw footage of her dark alley assault on pal Jami Ziegler.

We broke the story ... Porsha allegedly attacked Jami at a party in December while being filmed ... all because she didn't like the person Jami brought as her plus one.

Producers told the ladies the cameras didn't capture the fight ... since Jami ran out of the house and down a dark alley where the beatdown occurred ... but turns out it wasn't true. 

Our sources say the whole thing was captured on a camera  ... notably Porsha throwing some pretty mean punches, and the footage will air in April. 

We're told several women on the show want her kicked off since it was her third fight with castmates ... Cynthia, Kenya and now Jami, if you're keeping score.

Porsha knows how to keep the paychecks coming.
