Rapper Joey Bada$$ Brawls at Kanye's Show ... Don't Call Me A$AP Rocky, Bruh!

2/12/2016 7:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you're not down with Joey Bada$$ you might get smacked the hell up ... like the photog outside Madison Square Garden who thought the rapper was A$AP Rocky.

Joey, part of the Pro Era crew, was feeling like a million bucks as he cruised out of Kanye West's show -- but watch what happened when one of the paps (not our guy) misidentified him.

All hell breaks loose until 2 cops on the scene step in between the guys.

NYPD says the photog filed a harassment complaint, but no one's been arrested or even cited.

Just to make sure this never happens to you ... take a good look.

2/11/2016 10:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who was allegedly attacked by "Mob Wives" star Drita D'Avanzo says her family is now living in fear, terrified of Drita and her husband Lee.

Mary Bratti has provided TMZ with the full video of her and Drita exchanging blows on Tuesday. Bratti tells us the brawl got so heated she later passed out from pain, and a CT scan at the hospital revealed a minor concussion.

We broke the story, Drita was arrested on misdemeanor assault charges.

We're told the fight started over a parking spot -- Bratti says Lee D'Avanzo frequently uses her reserved spot outside her home. She also claims he's been harassing her since the fight. Bratti plans to request an order of protection, and she's having home security cameras installed.

Lee is an alleged mob associate (hence Drita's TV gig) who's done time for bank robberies and other crimes.

We've reached out to Drita, but no word back.

Nick Cannon got more than he bargained for when some "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars went on his show and one bragged about banging his estranged wife.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were guests on "Wild 'N Out" Monday when the 2 ex-lovebirds squared off during the rap battle against Nick and his crew. It started out all fun and games, but got progressively nasty. At one point Stevie J said he banged Mariah Carey not once but twice.

Nick got pissed off, and then told Stevie J he should worry about Joseline because she was sleeping with Rick Ross.  

It got down and dirtier, to the point Nick threatened the old Hollywood adage, "You'll never work in this town again," because he has so many TV shows and connections.

Eyewitnesses tell us it looked like they were about to come to blows, so producers stepped in, separated them and calmed them down. The picture we got tells part of the story.

EXCLUSIVE

0204-johnny-manziel-TMZ-01Johnny Manziel tells TMZ Sports ... he did NOT strike his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley during a January 30th dispute saying bluntly, "It didn't happen."

Johnny added, "I have great things coming ahead" ... though he didn't expand on what those things are. 

"I know I've been having fun but I just need to get my body right."

EXCLUSIVE

0204-brock-christopher-instagram-tmz-01"Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Miles Brock is off the hook for an alleged fight with his co-star and now ex-boyfriend Milan Christopher ... TMZ has learned. 

TMZ broke the story when Brock was arrested for allegedly punching Christopher in the face during a party in NY. Brock's attorney tells TMZ they got witness statements that contradicted Milan's claims and therefore, the case was dismissed for lack of evidence. 

Sources close to Milan tell a different story, saying he just didn't want to keep flying back and forth from L.A. to NYC to deal with the case ... so he dropped the charges.

The he said/he said might not be done yet -- Brock's attorney says his client is considering a possible defamation suit against Milan.

2/4/2016 9:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are back in each others arms and damn near each other's mouths -- call it a possible silver lining to their epic Twitter beef with Kanye West.

Amber showed up in NYC to support Wiz at his album release party. It looked and sounded like they were putting up a united front ... mostly for their kid. Wiz gave his "baby mama" a shout-out from the mic, and Amber posted a pic captioning it, "supporting Sebastian's dad."

Things went from PG to PG-13 in the back of their ride home from the party.

Can't help but notice ... the two weren't getting this physical before the Kanye feud, which means maybe 'Ye was right -- he's got the power to bring exes back together
