Matt Barnes Photos Of Nightclub Wounds ... I'm the Real Victim

12/8/2016 7:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208_matt_barnes_injuries_launchTMZ Sports has obtained photos of the injuries Matt Barnes claims he sustained in the NYC nightclub brawl early Monday morning ... injuries he claims prove he was NOT the aggressor. 

The photos were literally taken minutes after Barnes left Avenue Nightclub around 3:30 AM -- and show scratches and minor cuts to the front and back of his neck. 

Barnes also took pics of his fists -- which don't appear to show any injuries. The idea is that if Barnes was swinging and connecting, he'd have swelling or bruising around his knuckles. He does not. 

Barnes and his Sacramento Kings teammate, DeMarcus Cousins, are being sued by the other two people involved in the fight -- a man and a woman who claim the NBA stars went off in an unprovoked violent rage. 

Barnes and Cousins claim the allegations are BS -- insisting they were attacked first and did what they had to do to protect themselves.

Matt Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins have just been SUED over the nightclub brawl at Avenue in NYC this week ... with the alleged victims claiming they were brutalized by the NBA stars. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Sacramento Kings teammates were involved in a violent altercation with two people at the VIP booth next to them around 3 AM on Dec. 5. 

According to the lawsuit filed in NYC, Jasmine Besiso and Myrone Powell claim they were innocently hanging out when Barnes approached Jasmine and began to choke her. 

In the suit, Powell says he saw the attack and tried to intervene but that's when Cousins stepped in and punched him in the face. 

At that point, Barnes allegedly released Jasmine's neck and elbowed her in the face -- knocking her unconscious. Myrone claims he was taken to the ground and Barnes and Cousins proceeded to kick and punch him in the head and body. 

The NYPD was called to the scene but Barnes and Cousins had left by the time they arrived. 

A rep for the alleged victims calls the incident a "vicious and unprovoked attack" And says Cousins' initial blow was a "blindside punch."

The rep also says the two were transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where they were treated for "serious injuries."

A rep for Barnes has previously told us that the NBA stars were the real victims -- who were attacked by the other clubgoers over an accidental bump in the VIP section. 

TMZ Sports obtained video of Barnes and Cousins in the moments after the fight -- rehashing their version of what happened inside.

EXCLUSIVE

Joseline Hernandez went BALLISTIC when she found out some chick was hanging at Stevie J's pad and that's why she went on the attack ... at least that's what Stevie told cops.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star called Atlanta PD Sunday and told them Joseline became real violent and attempted to punch and scratch him ... this according to the police report.

Stevie claimed Joseline busted his face and injured his eyes ... but cops said they saw no visible injuries. They also advised him to get a restraining order, but he hasn't. Joseline -- who should pop out a baby girl in a matter of weeks -- wasn't there when cops showed up. 

Sources tell TMZ ... Joseline had been under the impression Tommie Lee was the chick at Stevie's crib but we're told it was actually someone else. Tommie and Joseline, of course, have a nasty history.

The next day ... Sandy Springs PD were called after Stevie said she assaulted him again. According to the police report ... Stevie says Joseline used her hands, feet and teeth to attack him.

We got them leaving court Tuesday -- Stevie's sticking to his story while Joseline appears unfazed.

We broke the story ... Stevie's asking the court to order a psychological evaluation for Joseline.

Russell Crowe D.A. Rejects Azealia Banks Case SHE Was On the Attack

12/7/2016 9:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-russell-crowe-tmz-01Russell Crowe will not be charged for bear-hugging Azealia Banks and removing her from his Beverly Hills Hotel suite ... the D.A. says his actions were justified because she was out of control.

According to the L.A. County D.A.'s Office ... several witnesses to the October incident said Azealia repeatedly used a racial epithet and was verbally aggressive to people in Crowe's room.

The witnesses also backed up what TMZ first reported ... that Azealia picked up a glass and threatened to use it to cut the throat of a guest. Azealia filed a police report after the incident claiming Russell choked her, called her the n-word and spit on her as he removed her from the suite. 

The D.A. concluded that Russell physically tossing her was "justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks." Russell also hired high powered attorney Shawn Holley to defend him against the allegations he said were false. As for the spitting ... the D.A. says it was "incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence."

For the record, a witness says the spit didn't hit Azealia anyway.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star says Joseline showed up uninvited to his pad Sunday and busted up his face and injured his eyes. It's interesting ... Stevie posted a vid with her that same day, and they seemed all lovey-dovey. Stevie tells us that vid was shot right before the alleged beatdown.

In docs, Stevie says there was another encounter where Joseline threatened him, lunged at him, hurled paperwork and unleashed a profanity-laced tirade.

Stevie J is asking the court to order a psychological evaluation for Joseline, as well as anger management. In the docs he says he's afraid she'll hurt him and their unborn child. He's even preemptively requesting a guardian be appointed for the baby ... who's due any day now.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ that second encounter happened at a DNA lab where Stevie was getting pricked for the paternity test she requested. We're told 'LHHA' cameras were rolling.

We've reached out to Joseline, so far no word back.

Breaking News

Conor McGregor believes he's got all the advantages in a fight with Floyd Mayweather -- power, reach and youth ... saying, "Age waits for no man!"

McGregor talked about his possible boxing career during an event in Northern Ireland on Friday -- when, of course, the topic of Mayweather came up.

"If I focus with the work ethic I have solely on the sport of boxing, there’s no telling what I could do,” McGregor said.

"I would not go in there just to show up, I’d go in there to knock [Floyd] out. That’s it. He can be hit, he’s been hit before. Age waits for no man."

"I know the size is on my side, I know the reach is on my side, I know the youth is on my side."

He continued, "There’s a lot to lose for them, so that’s why they're scrambling ... but that’s okay, I’ll leave them scrambling. I’ve got some other boxing opportunities and potential opponents in mind. Some previous Floyd opponents. They can bring in anyone in the game. We’ll see what happens."

Someone brought up boxing champ Paul Malignaggi -- who called McGregor out on social media.

Conor's response? WHO THE F**K IS THAT GUY?!!

"I don’t know who the f**k that is but I’ll slap the nose off him if he ever mentions my name again."
