Adoree' Jackson Sam Darnold will be #1 In '18 Draft ... He's the Truth!

4/29/2017 12:15 AM PDT

Adoree' Jackson's only been in the league a few minutes and he's already making predictions ... telling TMZ Sports his old QB, Sam Darnold, will definitely be the #1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Jackson was selected 18th overall by the Tennessee Titans -- and when we saw him out in Philly right after his name was called, he was praising the man leading his old squad back in L.A.

Jackson also says USC has a real shot at a national championship and Darnold could win the Heisman.

He's not the only one who feels this way -- in fact, there's a campaign among NY Jets fans to "tank" the season to get Darnold in '18.

Not the worst idea we've heard ...

EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Belafonte did Mel B dirty and she's not the only one ... so says a woman who had a baby with him. 

Nicole Contreras was at Craig's Wednesday, and she had nothing nice to say about her ex. She says, among other things, Belafonte is a deadbeat dad who has not paid child support for their 12-year-old daughter, Giselle.

She didn't marry Belafonte but, based on the timeline, it looks like Mel B was Belafonte's rebound after breaking up with Nicole.

Nicole's squarely in Mel B's corner ... saying all her horror stories ring true.

4/26/2017 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The three notes recovered in Aaron Hernandez's prison cell were written to his fiancee, his daughter and his attorney, Jose Baez ... NOT a supposed gay lover, sources tell TMZ Sports. 

The contents of the letters are being kept under wraps for now -- but sources familiar with the investigation tell us the ex-NFL player did not leave any sort of a message for another inmate.

There are reports Hernandez had been corresponding with a "gay lover" during his time in lockup -- but Baez had previously shot that down as false ... saying, "These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead."

Aaron Hernandez's Lawyer Scoffs At Inmate Allegations

4/26/2017 10:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Aaron Hernandez's legal team says the inmate who claims to have had a special friendship with the NFL star behind bars is simply trying to get money from the media ... and they won't dignify his claims with an official comment.

The inmate, Kyle Kennedy, has hired a lawyer after reports surfaced Hernandez wrote a suicide letter to him before his death. Kennedy claims they became very close in prison and spent a "great deal of time together."

Hernandez's attorney, Jose Baez, has previously shot down reports Aaron left a note for a gay prison lover -- and tells TMZ Sports his team has more important things to do than address Kennedy's claims.

"Our team is doing serious legal work," Baez says ... "We don’t have the time to stop our efforts and respond to every convicted felon that has something to say about Aaron Hernandez."

He adds, "Quite frankly I’m surprised more inmates have not come forward to make money off the media."

Exclusive Details

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott jumped from holding hands at Coachella to holding way more at an NBA playoff game, and yet ... they're still in the heavy flirting with a chance of banging stage.

The rapper was courtside in Houston Tuesday night for the Rockets-Thunder game and must've thought rubbing Kylie's inner thigh would bring his hometown Rockets good luck.

This comes on the heels of Coachella ... where sources at the music fest tell us Kylie showed up to support Travis as he headlined the second biggest stage. KJ was there with her own pals, but the social media clip of them holding hands doesn't lie.

We're told they were super flirty in the desert, and although nothing was consummated ... all signs point to it happening soon. Our sources add ... they've been close for years, since they both appeared in a Justine Skye music video.

#TravisScott & #KylieJenner were reportedly spotted holding hands 👀 @travisscott @kyliejenner #WSHH

A post shared by WorldstarHipHop (@worldstar) on

From the looks of it, they moved a BIG step closer to banging in Houston.

Timing might not be great -- he's touring with Kendrick Lamar this summer, and she's fresh off the breakup with Tyga breakup.

But as they say, the best way to get over a rapper is to find another one ... who can pay his bills.

Scott Baio Threatened by Erin Moran's Brother ... Takes Shot at 'Tiny' Junk

4/25/2017 5:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Scott Baio can count on a can of whoopass if he ever runs into Erin Moran's brother, who wants payback for Scott's comments about Erin's substance abuse.

Tony Moran tore into Scott ... referring to a brief fling Erin and Scott had way back when they were young TV stars. His Tuesday Facebook post got nasty though when he said, "She told me that you were tiny." Then came the not so thinly veiled threat: "Get on your knees and pray you never run into me."

Tony's angry about Scott's radio interview where he took Erin to task for using drugs. At the time, Scott thought that's what killed her, but later learned it was cancer.

Scott told us he wouldn't have been so harsh if he'd known she was battling cancer -- but he stands firm on his view of addiction.

Battle lines are drawn.

Danielle Bregoli says there is one obvious reason she's NOT the girl who's getting beat to a pulp in a viral video ... and it's all about the victim's butt.

It's not hard to understand the confusion -- Danielle and the punching bag in the video do look extremely similar. It's unclear where the video was shot, but fact is "Cash Me Outside" has been here in Los Angeles.

We got her at LAX, and she explained why that ain't her getting dragged in the vid. As she puts it, size matters when you're talking booty and bodyguards.

Meanwhile, Danielle's look-alike is gonna have a serious headache ...

Jesse Williams Me Dating Minka? Here's My Answer ...

4/25/2017 9:38 AM PDT

Jesse Williams is keeping tight-lipped about his divorce, but he absolutely has a response to rumors he's dating Minka Kelly.

Jesse was flying out of LAX Tuesday morning when we asked about his split from Aryn after nearly 5 years of marriage. The "Grey's Anatomy" star was trying to keep a low profile -- hoodie up, shades on -- and not at all talkative.

Still, he dressed appropriately for the occasion -- because he let the message on the back of his jacket do the talking when asked if things are serious with Minka.

As we reported, he's been hanging out with her in Paris while they work on a video game production.

Jesse Williams has been separated from the wife he is now divorcing for more than a year, and he's been hanging out recently with Minka Kelly.

TMZ broke the story ... Jesse filed to end his 5-year marriage to Aryn Drake-Lee ... they've actually been together for 13 years. They have 2 children, the youngest is a year old.

As for Minka, they're shooting a video game/movie in Paris and have been seen both on and off set for the last few months, but no one's saying if it's anything more than a friendship.

A lot of Jesse's fans are upset he's moving on, but a source connected with the couple tells TMZ ... as far as Jesse's concerned, the relationship has "played itself out."

Aaron Hernandez Prison Cell Letters NOT for Gay Lover ... Attorney Insists

EXCLUSIVE

Letters were found inside Aaron Hernandez's cell when his body was found, but none of them were written to a gay lover.

Hernandez's lawyer, Jose Baez, tells TMZ Sports, "Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false. These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead."

The D.A. announced Thursday 3 letters were next to Hernandez's Bible, and that's when the rumors began.

Baez said he is not prepared to say whether Hernandez's death was suicide or foul play. He says, "There is still plenty we are investigating."

Dakota Johnson & Giovanni Ribisi 50 Shades of Carpooling

4/24/2017 11:13 AM PDT

Dakota Johnson and Giovanni Ribisi might be a new couple ... or they might be extremely eco-conscious. 

Giovanni and the "50 Shades of Grey" star both attended celeb jeweler Jennifer Meyer's 40th birthday bash Saturday night in WeHo. We don't know if they arrived together, but they definitely split in his ride.

No word if they're banging or just carpooling pals. If this is a friendzone sitch ... it's the first time we've seen them hanging out together.

They are both single -- Ribisi ended his second marriage to model Agyness Deyn in 2015, and Dakota split from her longtime bf last year. 

Drake Model's Pregnancy Claims Big, Fat Lies

4/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake didn't get an Instagram model pregnant and thinks her claim is so ridiculous he didn't even sic his team on her ... sources connected to the rapper tell TMZ.

It's interesting ... Layla Lace posted earlier this week that Drake knocked her up in London and went radio silent once she told him. But she has since scrubbed all traces of the allegations.

There have been rumblings Drake's team went nuts on her and threatened her with a lawsuit unless she removed the posts. Not true. He's never even met her.

Our sources say Drake's team never reached out to Layla much less threatened her ... they believe she did it for attention and when people talked about her there was no need to keep the posts up.

Nick Cannon I See Mariah Everyday ... Duh

Nick Cannon has been hanging out with Mariah Carey in public a lot lately, and he says that won't change ... for one obvious reason.

We got Nick Saturday night going into Au Fudge, where he was meeting up with Mimi and the kids. We asked if it's coincidence they've been seen together quite a bit since Mariah's breakup with Bryan Tanaka.

Nick sets the record straight with a friendly reminder.  

As we reported ... Mariah and Bryan broke up partly because of his extreme jealousy over Nick

Mariah and Nick had their hands full on their way out, and certainly look as tight as ever.
