Ex-LSU Star Jacob Hester LSU 'Disrespected' Les Miles 'Should've Finished Season'

9/27/2016 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A former LSU football star is standing up for Les Miles ... telling TMZ Sports the decision to fire his old coach was 'disrespectful' and 'shocking.'

We spoke to Jacob Hester, who played under the Mad Hatter for three years in Baton Rouge, and says Miles earned the right to finish out the season.

"I didn't like the way it ended there. He's been talked about for a year and a half maybe being on the hot seat, which I didn't agree with that either."

"Did changes need to happen? They probably did. But that's at the end of the season."

We also asked Hester his thoughts on the speculation Miles could end up at USC.

Check out the clip. 

Lindsay Lohan Egor Fires Back ... I Brought Home the Bacon, Not Her!

9/26/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0923-Egor-Tarabasov-lindsay-lohan-getty-tmzLindsay Lohan did NOT pay the bills during her relationship with Egor Tarabasov -- in fact, it's exactly the opposite ... so say sources close to Egor.

Lindsay went on Russian TV and said Egor was a slacker who didn't contribute a dime to the relationship.

But Egor claims HE was the breadwinner between the two ... so much so he had to cover thousands of dollars in bills Lindsay racked up during the filming her latest movie.

Our source says Lindsay had access to Egor's credit card, and she used it often to snatch up gifts for herself and her entire fam. As for that emerald engagement ring ... we're told Lindsay picked it alright, but didn't pay for it. It was all Egor.

Egor's got a steady income through a bunch of investments, and even serves as director for a couple European firms ... so he's got cash to blow.

As we reported ... Egor also denies Lindsay's allegations that he abused her.

Brad Pitt Conflict Over Confrontation with Son on Jet

9/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-brad-pitt-getty-10Brad Pitt crossed a line he had never crossed before by lunging at his 15-year-old son on a private jet and making contact with him, but the details of precisely what happened are in conflict ... and frankly, murky.

TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services launched an investigation after getting an anonymous tip that Brad allegedly attacked his eldest son on a trip back from France. 

Here's what's alleged -- Shortly after the plane took off, Brad and Angelina began arguing and Maddox jumped up to verbally defend his mom. We're told Brad then lunged at the boy and Angelina jumped in between them to block her husband. Brad connected in some fashion with his son.

Now here's what's in dispute:

-- Whether Brad and Angelina were arguing, or whether Maddox was acting up on the plane.

-- Whether Brad made contact with his son intentionally or inadvertently.

-- Whether Brad was drunk at the time. Although authorities were told Brad was drunk when the incident went down, we're told Angelina says he was sober at the time but got drunk later in the flight. Sources connected with Brad tell TMZ he was drunk at the time of the incident.

As we reported, Angelina wants sole physical custody of the kids. A source connected with Angelina says this is not about alcohol ... she would never leave Brad if it was just a substance abuse problem. The source says this is all about protecting their children.

Brad has denied there was any abuse, but sources connected with him acknowledge there was an incident on the jet.

And our sources say Brad has never acted aggressively toward his kids in the past -- other than verbally -- and Angelina felt the incident on the plane was a deal breaker.

Lindsay Lohan Egor Hit Me And He's Broke!

9/22/2016 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0922-lindsay-lohan-egor-tarabasov-gettyLindsay Lohan had to hide her abusive relationship with Egor Tarabasov, and she also paid through the nose to keep them afloat ... at least that's what she claimed on Russian TV. 

During her interview with Russia's Channel One, Lindsay said Egor hit her throughout their relationship ... to the point she had to cover her bruises. 

She also said she supported Egor financially ... even buying her own engagement ring -- which would explain why she's still wearing the emerald since they split. Kinda shocking because Egor is the son of a super wealthy Russian businessman. 

Lindsay went on to say the abuse made her more like her mom, Dina ... who, of course, had a rocky and abusive relationship with Michael Lohan. 

As we first reported, Lindsay was very keen on meeting President Putin while she's in Russia ... and she doubled down on that during the interview, saying ... "I really like him, he is very persistent." Whatever that means. 

Egor's already firing back -- his rep tells us Lindsay's claims are all false, and he'll pursue legal action to clear his name. 

Here's the interview, if you want to check it out ... it's in Russian. 

Nick Young Seals Rebound With Hot Singer

9/22/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Young crossed the line with smoking hot singer Paloma Ford outside The Nice Guy ... and he made sure everyone saw him do it.

The Lakers star was leaving the WeHo hot spot Wednesday night with Paloma and when they hopped in his ride, they waited till all the paps were in place ... and then kissed for a bit.

Check out the video, it ain't as romantic as it sounds. Seems like Paloma wanted to make sure everyone knows this is her guy, and she's more than a rebound chick. Still, Nick seemed happy to oblige.

Nick also chatted with us about Metta rejoining the Lakers and that Derrick Rose situation.

As for Paloma? Great timing, considering how Iggy's doing these days. All Nick needs now is some new bling for his new girl.

0922-iggy-azalea-french-montana-diamond-rings-INSTAGRAM-01Iggy Azalea is warming up to French Montana ... with a little bit of ice.

Iggy posted a pic of her fingers enveloped in 7 diamond bands.

Iggy captioned the pic, "He told me pressure makes diamonds," and tagged the rapper and his jeweler, Iceman Nick.

Iggy's played coy up to this point, calling French a "friend," despite their makeout trip to Mexico a few weeks back ... but diamonds clearly make it official. 

She had to return the engagement ring she got from Nick Young, but doesn't seem like she's hurting in the carat department.

0921-edleman-lima-getty-01Adriana Lima's still going strong with New England Patriots star Julian Edelman ... who doesn't seem the least bit phased by her "date" with Ryan Seacrest.

Sources close to the Pat and the supermodel tell us EdeLima is still very much a thing. In fact ... the Victoria's Secret Angel was in Boston visiting the NFL star just a couple weeks ago. We're told she hung out with him and his friends, which is always a big deal.

Julian's focused on a different kinda victory right now -- he's busy prepping to be the backup QB for Thursday's game against the Texans.
