Chris Brown Denies 'Bulls***' with Soulja Boy ... Karrueche Too?

2/21/2017 12:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Chris Brown is strongly denying something, but it's unclear if he's talking about his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran claiming he's making death threats, or about Soulja Boy -- either way, Chris looks rough around the edges.

Brown told his fans, "Make sure y'all don't be listening to all this bulls***." He never says Karrueche's name, but he could be referring to the story TMZ broke -- Karrueche getting a restraining order against him.

He also explains why he pulled out of the Soulja Boy boxing match -- blaming it on "homies" getting in the way -- and seems to challenge Soulja's crew to come get him.

What's clear is Chris has massive dark circles around his eyes, and seems to be in desperate need of some sleep.

EXCLUSIVE

The guy who ambushed Aaron Carter because he felt the singer made a racial slur against his bandmate is doubling down ... and demanding an apology.

Haze Carbajal tells us ... he's certain Carter's "Bye Felipe" was a racist comment because he and his fellow ILL State band members were the only Hispanics at the show. He says he was offended ... and had no choice but to retaliate.

Despite allegedly sending Aaron to the ER, Haze wants the singer to apologize for disrespecting his people. He also threw some major shade at Aaron's "fame."

Openly gay boxer Yusaf Mack unleashed a barber shop beatdown -- attacking a man he claims has been harassing him online over his sexual orientation.

TMZ Sports confirmed paramedics were called to the L A Clippers shop in Philadelphia Saturday evening ... after Mack wailed on the man in front of customers and employees.

Witnesses tell us Mack attacked the dude while the victim's head was in a sink in the middle of a wash. 

Mack tells us he got sick and tired of the online harassment and decided to confront the guy face-to-face. Mack is unapologetic and says the guy got what he deserved.

We also reached out to the victim who didn't want to talk ... but has since issued several homophobic statements on his Facebook page, including:

"I rather have a video of some beating me up then a video of someone seeing me take a d*** up my a** any day."

The man says he will retaliate against Mack ... "Me and him gonna fight again."

Mack says he's not scared.

UFC Fighter KOs Ronda Rousey's Boyfriend ... Tries to Steal His Girl

2/20/2017 6:11 AM PST
Breaking News

Tough night for Ronda Rousey's boyfriend -- first he gets the snot kicked out of him at UFC Fight Night 105 ... then his opponent hollers at Ronda right in the center of the Octagon!!!

Derrick Lewis beat Travis Browne so badly Sunday night the guy was transported to the hospital immediately following the fight ... but Derrick really went in on the guy in the post-fight interview. 

First, he referenced the 2015 domestic violence investigation into Browne (we should note Browne was never charged with a crime) ... and then he called out Ronda. 

Judging from the past, Browne isn't one to go quietly ... so we're guessing we haven't heard the last of this one.

Darrelle Revis: The Voice On that Video Ain't Mine ... I'll Prove It!

2/20/2017 5:58 AM PST
Breaking News

0216_Darrell-Revis_getty-3Darrelle Revis is adamant the voice captured on video bragging about knocking out 2 guys in Pittsburgh over the weekend is NOT him ... and his lawyers say they can prove it.

TMZ Sports posted video from the aftermath of the incident ... showing 2 men knocked out cold while an unidentified man admits, "I knocked both these motherf**kers out."

Now, Revis' attorneys -- Robert Del Greco Jr. and Mark Fiorilli -- issued a statement saying the NFL star "absolutely, categorically and positively did not knock out anyone."

The lawyers claim Revis did not commit ANY crime and add, "We have no doubt but that further investigation relative to the clothing and voice verification will corroborate the above assertions."

So far, Revis is the only person involved in the incident charged with a crime.

Aaron Carter I Wasn't Racist During Attack ... Ask Mis Amigos Mexican

2/20/2017 7:03 AM PST

0220-aaron-carter-tmz-getty-01Aaron Carter's got a message for the guy who attacked him and accused him of being racist -- Me encanta los Mexicanos!

Aaron flaunted his Mexican credentials, saying he has a "100% Mexican manager and she is basically my adopted mom. And my ex girlfriend Myra 3rd generation Mexican."

His rant continued, "I also learned Spanish so I could speak with her parents who weren't fluent in English." He also says his attacker used the n-word on Twitter a couple years ago. As Aaron put it ... "And I'm the racist?"

TMZ broke the story ... as security removed the attacker, who is Latino, Aaron yelled, "Bye Felipe!" Aaron insists he was just doing the male version of "Bye Felicia!"

Scott Baio Alleged Attacker Skates Trump Factor?

2/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-scott-baio-nancy-mack-TMZ-GETTY-01Scott Baio's not getting the justice he wanted -- the wife of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer will not be charged for physically attacking him ... and Donald Trump may have played a factor in the decision.

The Ventura County D.A.'s office rejected the case against Chad Smith's wife, Nancy Mack ... they say because the assault just wasn't that bad.

TMZ broke the story ... Scott was at a school event for his daughter when Nancy confronted him over his vigorous support for Trump. Scott says she beat on him and then started berating him, screaming, "Grab 'em by the pussy!!!"  

Now, here's what's interesting. Prosecutors are not supposed to file cases when there's no reasonable chance of winning a conviction. With today's political climate and a Southern California jury pool that, at best, is deeply divided -- 42% of Ventura County residents are Hispanic -- getting 12 people to agree she was out of line might just be a pipe dream.

EXCLUSIVE

Tyron Woodley says he's the greatest UFC welterweight EVER ... better than Georges St-Pierre ... and he won't stop kicking ass until he's proved it to the entire world.

Woodley -- the current UFC champ at 170 -- sat down with TMZ Sports to talk about his upcoming rematch with Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson at UFC 209 in March.

Tyron told us he's looking forward to polishing Thompson off and proving their last fight (which ended in a draw) was a fluke ... but beyond that, he's got some bigger things to prove.

"I'm the best welterweight to ever fight in the Octagon, all I gotta do is keep winning to prove it. I'm more well rounded than Georges St-Pierre, I punch harder."

We have no idea if he's right ... but we're certainly not gonna tell him he's wrong.

We've learned the incident went down Thursday at a Malibu park, where Paula was supposed to hand off 6-year-old Julian to the court-appointed monitor so Robin could have his visit. We're told Robin was also present, but here lies the conflict.

The sources say Paula was an hour late and when she arrived she refused to give Julian to the monitor.  Our Paula sources say the monitor arrived at 3:13 PM and she arrived exactly on time at 3:30 PM.

Sources connected with Paula say Robin violated the restraining order and was feet from Paula when she arrived with her son. They say Julian decided he didn't want to go with his dad and asked her to call 911.

We're told Paula's people called the cops, who came to the scene but by the time they got there Paula and Julian had left. When the deputies arrived, our Robin sources say the officers told him a black SUV resembling Paula's had gotten in an accident. He freaked out and left to find the SUV.  

Our Paula sources say she was not in an accident.
