Diddy

Hits the Stage

...Then His Ass

6/29/2015 3:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can't keep Diddy down ... even when he falls into a giant hole.

It happened Sunday night during an epic Bad Boys Records tribute at the BET Awards featuring Mase, Faith Evans, Lil' Kim, and 112  ... Diddy danced over what appeared to be an elevator lift opening. He fell smack on his ass ... hard.

But the football father took it like a champ -- popping right up and finishing to a standing ovation.

Now that's what you call strength and conditioning.

Diddy seemed in good shape when he hit up BOA after the show, but wasn't into our questions about his UCLA football fight.

Diddy

Fistfighting Allegations Against Coach

Could Scare Prosecutors

6/26/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-sal-alosi-diddy-usatsi-tmz-01Diddy may have caught a huge break from a chiropractor who just came forward with a stunning allegation against UCLA coach Sal Alosi, claiming Alosi is prone to fistfights, and even had one with a New York Jets superstar.

TMZ Sports has obtained a letter from a female chiropractor sent to Jets brass in 2010 ... raising serious concerns about strength and conditioning coach Alosi. According to the chiropractor, Alosi got into a "fistfight" with Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis. The doctor added Alosi has a pattern of abusive behavior and the Jets needed to get him under control.

We've learned the chiropractor sent the letter to Diddy's team, and it could be a secret weapon. The D.A. will review the assault case for possible felony prosecution, but if the main victim looks unsympathetic and even violent, it's way less likely they'd go forward. Juries don't like unsympathetic "victims."

The chiropractor also complained Alosi verbally abused and humiliated her, even trying to prohibit her from treating players because he was pissed off over petty issues involving towels and water. 

It's unclear how the Jets handled the chiropractor's allegations. Alosi was suspended during the 2010 season for tripping a player during a game, and he resigned from the team at the end of the season.

We called Diddy's rep for comment but have not heard back.

Tyga

Fights with Club Owner ...

Eyewitness Says Gun Drawn

6/26/2015 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga pissed off a Swiss club owner so much, the guy chased him outside and started a fist fight with the rapper and his entourage ... and Kylie Jenner had a front row seat.

Tyga was scheduled to play a show at Envogue Genève, a club in Geneva, Switzerland. According to our sources, Tyga was supposed to play for an hour ... but he showed up super late and only performed for about 10 minutes.

0626-sub-kylie-tyga-wm-tmz-01Tyga left the club around 4 AM and got in his car with Kylie. The enraged owner was hot on Tyga's heels, running out of the club, yelling for Tyga ... a fight then broke out.

At that point Tyga got out of the car to join in the fracas, but an eyewitness says someone in the owner's posse flashed a gun. That was apparently enough for Tyga to make a hasty retreat, leaving his bodyguards behind.

Dustin Diamond

Screech Sentenced to Jail ...

For Bar Stabbing

6/25/2015 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Dustin Diamond did not get saved by a Wisconsin judge ... who sentenced the actor to 120 days in jail for a bar stabbing incident.  

During Thursday morning's hearing, Diamond also got 15 months probation, and cannot return to the scene of the crime or contact the victim. However, he was ordered to pay the victim $1,105 in restitution. 

The "Saved by the Bell" star will serve his 120 days in two 60 day stints.

Diamond was arrested in December 2014 for stabbing a man during an bar altercation on Christmas night. He was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct ... both misdemeanors.

During sentencing, the judge admonished Dustin for even carrying a knife -- since Wisconsin's such a safe place.

They're gonna LOVE Screech in the yard.

You Called Me Out, Bitch!

EXCLUSIVE

0623-p-diddy-sal-alosi-tmz-01

We now know what triggered the confrontation between Diddy and the UCLA coach -- eyewitnesses tell TMZ Sports that Sal Alosi embarrassed the rap mogul in front of the whole team. 

Our sources tell us ... strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi was riding Justin Combs hard -- and screaming out loud, "I don't care if your dad's here. This is UCLA. I'm going to treat you just like I treat everyone else."

We're told Diddy got super heated -- feeling as if the coach was trying to humiliate and embarrass both him and his son in front of the rest of the team.

Of course, Diddy and Justin went to meet with Alosi in his office following the training session ... and the rest is history.

Diddy

Told UCLA Coach ...

'I'm Gonna F**k You Up'

6/23/2015 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-diddy-tmz-01Diddy's alleged terrorist threat involved a bomb ... an f-bomb ... with sources telling TMZ Sports the rap mogul threatened to "f**k up" the UCLA strength coach during their office fight.  

Law enforcement sources tell us ... after Diddy swung a kettlebell at strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi, he allegedly screamed out that he was "going to f**k him up." 

Prosecutors believe the comments amounted to a "terrorist threat" -- so that's why he was hit with the charge in addition to 3 counts of assault with a deadly weapon.  

As far as the case goes, one insider tells us important UCLA officials met this morning and we're told "charges will most likely be dropped but [Diddy] won't be allowed on the field anymore."

update_graphic_red_bar8:15 AM PT -- More info on what led up to the confrontation ... sources tell us the drama began earlier in the day on Monday when Sal booted Justin from a conditioning session for "lack of effort." 

When Diddy -- who was a once-a-week regular at UCLA practices -- heard about the situation, he was PISSED and stormed down to Alosi's office with Justin. 

When they arrived, Alosi was on the phone and told Diddy and Justin to hold on -- which only made them more upset. Alosi told Justin he would speak with him ... but instructed him to get his father OUT of the office.  

This only pissed Diddy off even more, according to BruinReportOnline.

Alosi reportedly had his hands up in a non-threatening way ... but Diddy "walked into Alosi's hand" ... and then warned Alosi not to put his hands on him.  

That's when Diddy exploded and attacked Alosi -- interns rushed in to break it up. Diddy was pulled out of the office and into the connecting gym, where he picked up the kettlebell and swung. 

Alosi reportedly suffered cuts on his face and a torn shirt.

'Storage Wars'

Brawl Caught on Video

6/20/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar10:55 PM PST -- Dan just tweeted: We're sorry Storage Wars fans! Violence is never the answer, it's not OK. We were attacked & did what anyone would do. #StopBullyingupdate_grey_gray_barWe just obtained video of the massive brawl that erupted on the "Storage Wars" set ... and it's as crazy as we first heard.

Short story ... Dan Dotson, the auctioneer, missed a bid. Producers needed to make things right, so they told Dave Hester -- a regular on the show who often bids on storage lockers -- to tell Dave about his oversight.  Dan ignored Dave, so producers told Dave to persist. And that's when all hell broke loose.

The video shows how heated things got ... Laura, Dan's wife, is ballistic at Dave for knocking her to the ground.

In the end, Dave was kicked off the set and went to the hospital for a tetanus shot because Laura scratched him, drawing blood.

Production was halted. Take that, Real Housewives.

A couple of "Storage Wars" stars just got into a massive fight -- with fists, and even a WIFE getting thrown around ... TMZ has learned.

The brawl broke out Friday afternoon while the cast was shooting in Palm Springs. Dan Dotson was holding an auction when according to witnesses ... he missed a bid placed by Mary.

We're told producers asked Dave Hester to tell Dan about the mistake, but Dan initially ignored him. When Dave approached again ... Dan got heated and screamed, "F**k you, David! I'm going to kill you!"

That's when the melee erupted -- we're told Dave punched Dan in the face ... then Dan raked Dave's eye. Dan's wife, Laura, jumped on Dave's back, and then SHE got tossed through the air! Security guards eventually broke it up, and we're told Dave immediately wanted to get back to the auction.  

No dice. Producers booted Dave, who we're told was heading to a hospital. Unclear what he hurt in the fight.

Right now, the plan is continue shooting the auction ... sans Dave. update_graphic_red_bar3:00 PM PT -- Producers decided to shut down the shoot after all. We're told Dave's in the ER getting a tetanus shot ... because Laura scratched him.

Meek Mill

Pistol-Whipping Goes Down

On Rival Rapper's Crew

6/10/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Meek Mill's beef with a rival exploded into a pistol-whipping melee on the streets of Philly ... with people fleeing for their lives -- and the violence is crystal clear in this video. 

Meek and his crew were shooting a music video Tuesday evening ... when Louie V Gutta and his homies showed up. Watch the video -- there's a little bit of jawing, a little bit of pushing, tensions rising, and then ... chaos.

A guy standing behind Louie V got CRACKED in the face with what looks like the butt of a handgun -- and then everyone scatters ... fearing a shootout was about to go down. 

No shots were fired, but police were called to the scene. No one got arrested.

Right after the incident, Louie V claimed he wasn't involved but admitted he was there talking to Meek. 

Lil Wayne

I Didn't Spit On Ref, But ...

I Got Up in His Grill for Cheating

6/6/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-lil-wayne-ref-bad-call-GIF-01

Lil Wayne's face off with a referee in a charity hoops game was definitely violent -- we've got new video to prove that -- but Weezy denies ever unloading a loogie on the guy. 

As we reported ... Wayne lost his temper when the ref repeatedly made calls against his Young Money squad during the recent game in St. Louis. Sources close to Tunechi tell us he went after him dead set on starting a fight.

In the clip, you clearly see him charge at the ref and try to slap the whistle right out of his mouth. But we're told Wayne didn't spit on him. There's no evidence of it from this angle, although the ref does towel off his face at one point. 

Funny moment in the vid -- as the melee erupts, someone yells ... "No! We can't do this two times in a row!!" We think he's referring to the promoter, Loose Cannon Slim's last attempt at a St. Louis stop the violence event.

Why all the fighting? As one Wayne source put it ... "S**t happens.”

Chris Massey Sues

Lil Twist Beat Me Down

AND Jacked My Rollie

6/5/2015 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-chris-massey-lil-twist-TMZ-01Lil Twist is having a bad Friday -- not only is he set to be arraigned for allegedly orchestrating a brutal beatdown of Chris Massey ... he's now being sued for it as well.

In the suit, Massey says Twist and four of his friends came into his brother Kyle Massey's apartment last November without permission, and began to punch, beat, kick, push and choke him. Chris also says Twist and his boys used brass knuckles and a screwdriver during the attack.

Chris says he suffered cuts and bruises, and needed stitches over his eye. Perhaps more painful ... in the suit he says Twist and his crew made off with his Rolex.

Justin Bieber's ex-pal has already been criminally charged with six felonies for the incident -- which means he could be looking at significant prison time if convicted.

He'll be arraigned on those charges Friday afternoon.
