CM Punk

Laughs Off Green Ranger Challenge

For UFC Debut

12/18/2014 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

CM Punk UFC Fight Green Ranger CM Punk could choose ANY opponent for his UFC debut ... but it almost certainly won't be the Green Power Ranger -- not based on CM's reaction to the guy's name, anyway.

The former WWE champ was in NYC Thursday when he told our photog how training is going for his first bout in the Octagon. His new UFC contract was announced earlier this month.

CM wouldn't name names yet as far as his first opponent -- looks like he's enjoying the speculation. But you gotta see his reaction when we bring up Jason David Frank -- a former Power Ranger who's been calling out Punk. He's clearly not impressed.

Go go ... go to sleep.

Drake

No Scars After Diddy Fight

Drake finally surfaced after the Diddy fight looking no worse for wear -- of course he waited almost 4 days to show his face in public.

Drake went on a shopping trip in Miami Thursday -- the first time we've seen his whole face since Diddy took a shot at him early Monday morning outside LIV Nightclub.

As we first told you ... Drake re-injured his shoulder during the scrap, and actually had to go to the ER. Looks like his mug fared much better.

Respect.

Washington Redskins

Fight Breaks Out at Practice

With the Media Watching

12/10/2014 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news



Two Washington Redskins threw haymakers at each other during practice Wednesday right in front of the media -- and you thought the Skins ran out of ways to embarrass themselves.

The fists started flying during drills between receiver Andre Roberts and corner Bashaud Breeland. A few wild swings were thrown before players and coaches came in and separated the guys -- but they never came together to shake or hug it out.

The team kicked out all cameras right after the brawl.

Sitting at 3-10 ... the Skins should bottle up some of that fight for Sundays.

Diddy

Infuriated With Drake

Months Before Punch

EXCLUSIVE

121014_diddy_launch_v2Diddy's assault on Drake Monday morning was months in the making ... because last June he told a packed nightclub in Miami that Drake stole his song ... and then played it as if it were his own.

Diddy was at Story Nightclub in Miami Beach ... performing with Mase. Diddy never mentioned Drake by name, but made it clear he was a thief. 

It's interesting ... Diddy says he "gave" Drake the beat and then Drake stole it.  

As we reported ... Diddy punched Drake hard Monday, warning him never to disrespect him again. Drake reinjured his shoulder and went to the ER. 

Check out the pic Drake posted Wednesday from his hotel room, making it seem like he's okay.

Diddy

He Punched Drake Over a Song

12/9/2014 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy Punched Drakeupdate_graphic_red_bar12:35 PM PT -- According to our sources, the song that sparked the fight was "0 to 100/ The Catch Up" which was just nominated for two Grammys -- Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.update_grey_gray_barDiddy assaulted Drake early Monday morning because of a feud over a song ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Diddy punched Drake at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach, and we were told it was because Diddy felt disrespected by the rapper, and now we know why.

Our sources say, producer Boi-1da had given both Diddy and Drake a song to record more than 8 months ago. We're told Diddy sat on the song, which frustrated Drake because he wanted to record it. So recently Drake recorded the song on his own and it did well, which pissed Diddy off.

Diddy saw Drake at LIV Monday for the first time since the song was released. Sources close to Diddy say he confronted Drake, who just blew him off, and that's when Diddy said, "You'll never disrespect me again," and then punched him. 

We're told Drake ended up at an ER because in the ruckus he hit his shoulder and exacerbated an old injury.

breaking news

1208_drake_p_diddy_tmz_2It was money, not women, that made Diddy punch Drake outside of a Miami nightclub early Monday morning ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, Diddy confronted Drake just outside LIV nightclub -- where they'd both been partying -- and the topic of conversation was business. During the tete-a-tete, voices were raised and according to eyewitnesses ... Diddy said, "You will never disrespect me" ... and then clocked Drizzy.   

Our sources say it was just the one punch -- Drake was stunned, but not knocked out. One report said the fight was over Diddy's girlfriend, but we're told that wasn't the case.

Drake famously fought with Chris Brown in June 2012 at W.i.P. nightclub in NYC, but that one was over a woman -- Rihanna.

Apologizes to Karrueche

'I Love Hard' and Hate Hard

Chris Brown is remorseful over his Karrueche attack and -- without specifically saying it -- seems to be explaining his anger issues that go way back to Rihanna.

CB put his on-again/off-again GF Karrueche Tran on blast over the weekend ... insinuating she cheated with Drake and saying,"F*** that b****!"

120814_chris_brown_launch
In his apology, Brown accurately states that "being young and dumb is one of my strong suits" and that he is simply guilty of loving too hard. But then he offers the flip side ... that he reacts "impulsively when I'm hurt at times."

He went on to say that everyone knows he really loves Karrueche and he doesn't care how he comes across to the public ... "because I'm still gonna be the best at what I do. I just want baby girl to know I apologize."

Fool me once ...

Dan Bilzerian

Booted From Miami Club

For Booting a Woman

EXCLUSIVE

120714_dan_blizerian_launch_v2
Dan Bilzerian
was just called out by The Dirty for kicking a chick in the face ... and the video -- which is hard to watch -- is really hard to watch when you actually figure out what went down.

You see Dan on stage at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach ... surrounded by a sea of people, and he kicks someone in the face.

We're told the notorious playboy was kicked out of the club and booked it before police arrived.

Our club sources say the woman told cops she did not want to press charges so the cops left.

Sources close to Bilzerian say a bunch of women swarmed the stage and Dan kicked someone who was blocking a woman he was trying to help onto the stage.

A rep for LIV says the club has officially banned Dan from coming back.

It definitely brings to mind the video of Bilzerian throwing a porn star off the roof of his home and into the pool.  She claims she hit the side of the pool and screwed up her leg.

Halle Berry

I Got Proof

Gabriel Bleached Nahla's Hair!

EXCLUSIVE

1205_nalas_brush_2
Halle Berry
says she has the smoking follicle to prove Gabriel Aubry bleached and damaged her daughter's hair ... and the proof is in Nahla's hair brush.

TMZ broke the story ... Halle hauled Gabriel into court, claiming he was straightening and lightening her hair to make her appear white. Gabriel denied using chemicals and said the lightening was from the pool and sun.  

Halle submitted documents to the court from Microtrace, a forensic consulting lab. Halle gave them a pink hair brush with strands of Nahla's hair.

The company analyzed the hair and concluded there was evidence it was chemically treated. The lab went on to say the repeated use of chemicals took their toll, writing there was "extensive damage ... likely the cumulative effect of repeated exposure to numerous gentle bleaching treatments."

1205_gariel_and_nala_coleman_rayner2
The judge ruled neither Halle nor Gabriel could mess with Nahla's hair, and based on pics of Nahla and Gabriel from this week ... it looks like her hair is going back to normal.

Columbus Short's soon-to-be ex-wife has been criminally charged with beating up a woman whom she thought was having an affair with the former "Scandal" star.

It sounds like one of the worst marriages ever ... Columbus gets arrested, bails out, and his friend Tilly Key goes to pick him up from his home the next day. Columbus' wife, Tanee McCall-Short, sees Tilly inside the house and starts pounding on her. 

Rather than breaking up the fight, Columbus videotaped it.

The L.A. City attorney was impressed with the clip, and charged Tanee with battery.

Tilly claims she suffered a concussion, a cervical sprain, multiple contusions, a lumbar strain, and a lumbar sprain.

We're told NO questions are off-limits. That and a few drinks should make it interesting.

UFC champ Anthony Pettis is a 3rd degree black belt in taekwondo. Vladimir Putin is a 9th. 

So, who would win in a street fight? Don't bet on red. 

Pettis -- who's fighting Gilbert Melendez at UFC 181 this weekend -- was out in NYC this week when he told us the 6 degrees of martial arts separation wouldn't matter if push ever came to shove. 

For the record, here's how the tale of the tape would read ... 

Anthony Pettis:
UFC Lightweight Champion
27-years-old
3rd degree Taekwondo black belt
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 155

Vladimir Putin:
Russian President
62-years-old
9th degree Taekwondo black belt
Height: 5'7"
Weight: Classified 

The clip is awesome -- Pettis also tells us he spends time training at the same center as NFL superstar J.J. Watt ... and raves about how the guy CRUSHES weights in the gym.
