Albert Haynesworth Baby Mama 'Saddened & Humiliated' By Dom. Violence Allegations

9/22/2017 6:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Albert Haynesworth's ex-girlfriend is breaking her silence ... essentially claiming the ex-NFL star is lying about her being a racist and violent person.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Haynesworth claims he's the victim of domestic violence at the hands of Brittany Jackson, a former college basketball star. They dated for years and have a young child together. Haynesworth claims she physically and emotionally abused him and called him the n-word. 

But Brittany says that's just not true ... especially when it comes to the racism allegations.

"I am saddened and humiliated by the accusations just made by Albert about myself, the mother of our beautiful child," Jackson tells TMZ Sports.

"Accusations of me being racially biased are absurd. Come on Albert, we lived together for over 2 years and have a beautiful biracial baby that I love more than anything in this world!"

"As for the domestic accusations, I can not comment at this time due to current litigation but the truth will always surface."

Jackson adds, "This is a very difficult time for me and our child. Shockingly enough finding out I am the mother of Albert's 7th child, I do not feel I need to stoop to make public his true conduct."

For the record, we spoke to several of Jackson's former teammates -- many of whom are African American -- who strongly defended her against allegations she's racist. 

In fact, WNBA star Chamique Holdsclaw tells us, "I've known Brittany since she was a high school senior. She's the last person you'd ever think would be racist. I love her."

Ryan Phillippe Cops Don't Buy Ex-GF's Domestic Abuse Story

9/20/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Phillippe's ex-girlfriend's accusations -- that he brutally attacked her and threw her down the stairs -- don't add up ... according to cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... investigators don't believe Elsie Hewitt's account of what went down between her and Phillippe on July 4 for a couple reasons. First -- they say Ryan was shocked when cops showed up at his place after Elsie filed a police report ... but was completely cooperative.

We're told he invited them in and answered all their questions without lawyering up -- like he had nothing to hide.

Next, there's Elsie's story about the stairs. Our sources tell us the stairs she accuses Ryan of throwing her down twice are sharp and wooden, and would have left her with much nastier injuries -- even broken bones -- than what she laid out in her suit.

As we reported ... the L.A. City Attorney refused to prosecute Phillippe after investigating, but Hewitt still sued him. Ryan, in response, has hired a lawyer and plans to go after Elsie for defamation.

Phillippe himself is making it clear he has nothing to hide, saying, "At the time these allegations were initially made, I fully cooperated with law enforcement and a thorough investigation was conducted."

He adds, "Domestic violence is a very real and tragic issue faced by many women the world over and should never be used to vengefully slander or as a ploy for monetary gain."

"Everyone of my accuser's allegations are false."

Ryan Phillippe Ex-Fiancee Filed Harassment Report He Called Me a 'Whore'

9/19/2017 1:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Phillippe's former fiancee went to the LAPD last March to file a harassment report against the actor ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned Paulina Slagter went to the Hollywood division of LAPD on March 26 and filed an "Annoying or Harassing Electronics Communications Harassment Report." She claimed Ryan sent a slew of texts to her after their breakup -- many laced with vulgarities -- accusing her of infidelity and attacking her personally. We're told there were no physical threats but it was "aggressive."

We're told in at least one of the texts he called her a "whore."

The texts were "extremely angry."

Law enforcement sources tell us, Paulina dropped the case shortly after filing it because she didn't want the publicity. The case is closed. 

She did, however, just tweet -- presumably in response to Ryan's latest ex-girlfriend's physical abuse allegations -- "......when there's smoke...."

We reached out to Ryan's rep ... so far, no word back.

Kevin Hart & Eniko United We Stand

9/19/2017 12:57 PM PDT

Kevin Hart and his wife, Eniko, are presenting a united front ... just days after he publicly apologized to her for the sexually charged video at the center of an alleged extortion plot.

The couple went out for lunch Tuesday in Woodland Hills -- the first time they've been seen together since his video apology on Saturday. No holding hands or PDA of any sort, but still ... they're together, and as we've shown you ... Eniko's still wearing her ring.

Kevin had been in Atlanta on Monday, shooting a movie, but clearly jetted home to be with Eniko in the middle of the crisis. TMZ broke the story ... Kevin's had extended conversations with police as they try to track down the extortionists.

By the way, the restaurant they hit up is called JOEY -- known for rotisserie chicken and hibachi wings ... though we're guessing Kevin just had the crow.

On the way out, Kevin called the meal a "family moment," while Eniko let her left hand do the talking.

Ryan Phillippe Hires Lawyer to Sue Ex-GF Over Domestic Violence Claims

9/19/2017 11:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Phillippe has hired a high-powered civil litigator to go after the woman claiming he beat her up ... and he's using the "Taylor Swift" model of lawsuits ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Ryan tell us, Ryan's plan is to file either a defamation or malicious prosecution lawsuit against Elsie Hewitt, who has claimed in her own lawsuit Ryan was under the influence on July 4 and allegedly attacked her and threw her down the stairs.

Ryan has said she made it all up and was actually the aggressor who attacked him after he broke up with her.

Ryan wants an acknowledgement from Hewitt she was lying or, short of that, he wants a judge or jury to make the point. And, ala Taylor Swift, Ryan will donate any money he gets to domestic violence orgs, although he doesn't think she has money to pay.

He plans to file a countersuit for defamation and also a malicious prosecution case if and when her lawsuit is thrown out.

Gisele Bündchen was flyin' solo Monday, arriving at Boston Logan Airport shortly after former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci strongly insinuated Tom Brady didn't attend the Super Bowl celebration at the White House because Gisele had a jealousy thing over Ivanka Trump.

Gisele had been in Brazil to attend the Rock in Rio concert.

Scaramucci co-hosted "TMZ Live" Monday and suggested Tom and Ivanka had dated back in the day, and Gisele didn't want the 2 to interact. Sources connected to Ivanka told us, Tom and Gisele were friends but had not dated. BTW, in 2004 Trump mused it would be cool if Ivanka and Tom hooked up.

EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci believes it was Gisele who stopped Tom Brady from joining the Patriots on their Super Bowl trip to Donald Trump's White House ... strongly insinuating the supermodel didn't want Tom around Ivanka Trump.

The Mooch -- Trump's former White House communications director -- guest hosted "TMZ Live" Monday -- when we asked straight-up about the alleged rift between the POTUS and the GOAT.

A.S. says he didn't have direct knowledge of the situation -- but strongly suggested Gisele shut Brady down ... saying, "I think she's possessive of him and probably didn't want him there."

Mooch suggests Gisele may have been jealous of Ivanka Trump -- saying he thinks Brady and Ivanka may have dated at one point in the past.

In fact, back in 2004 ... Donald praised Tom as a great guy who would make a "great combination" with Ivanka.

Despite the Moochsinuation, a source connected to the Trump family tells us, "While they have known each other for years, this is not true."

For the record, Tom claimed the reason he missed the White House visit was to spend time with his ailing mother.
