Wrestling legend Kevin Nash is officially off the hook in the Christmas Eve brawl with his son -- after cops determined "Big Sexy" wasn't the one who started the fight.

According to the police report, Kevin took Tristen down to the ground hard after Tristen spit in his face. Tristen claimed Kev used his signature choke-slam move and caused him to black out. 

But now officials tells TMZ Sports the State Attorney's office investigated the incident and determined "Mr. Kevin Nash was not the primary aggressor in this situation and that criminal charges should not be filed against him."

As for Tristen ... officials say he's not in the clear -- they're still investigating his role in the fight.

We spoke with Kevin's attorney Michael Politis who tells us, "Kevin is very relieved this got done quickly because of his career with the WWE and his potential induction into the Hall of Fame." 

"He didn't want to be placed in the same category as -- for example -- the NFL player who punched his wife in the elevator."

Lil Boosie

I Was With My Kids on XMAS

Pic is NOT Photoshopped

1/9/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Boosie Photoshop KidLil Boosie is outraged people think he abandoned his kids on XMAS day and then had the audacity to deceive people into thinking they were with him courtesy of Photoshop. 

Boosie posted the pic last week featuring 4-year-old Michael Jordan ... and a lot of people thought it just didn't look real. 


We're told it was taken by a professional photog ... which is why the lighting looks better than normal. But Boosie insists the kid was front and center with him at his New Orleans digs. He says 6 of his other bambinos were there as well.

Still, we gotta ask ...

This was all a surprise to Eudoxie, but she was game so they got married on the spot. A few friends and family members were there to celebrate.

BTW ... Luda's mom picked out the dress, and Eudoxie had no objections.

They blew out of town a day or so later for their honeymoon in Costa Rica.

0101-duvall-franco-instagram-01Three major pieces of "The Godfather" -- Francis Ford Coppola, James Caan and Robert Duvall -- reunited on New Year's Eve for an epic selfie ... and somehow James Franco was a part of it.

It was Franco who posted the pic to the world, captioning it, "HAPPY GODFATHER NEW YEAR!!!!!"

Franco recently became friends with Francis' granddaughter, Gia Coppola, and even spent Christmas with the family.

EXCLUSIVE

Robin Thicke Paula Patton Christmas TogetherRobin Thicke and Paula Patton spent Christmas Eve partying together -- and even though they're not reuniting -- based on pics from the bash ... some of her family wishes they would.

Robin looked like the most popular guy at the holiday fest thrown at Paula's house -- and her cousin posted photos of the singer all buddy-buddy with everyone in the fam. Except Paula.

A source close to Robin tells us it was totally normal for Paula to invite Robin because of their kid, Julian. But c'mon -- look at the photos -- it's not normal for her family to show him so much love. 

As for Thicke's current GF April Love Geary -- she was NOT his plus one at Paula's crib. There are limits to forgiveness. Even at Christmas.

Kids and Mom in Furious

'I'm The Hottest' Contest

Kris Jenner
had her first XMAS bash as a single woman ... lots of friends but notable absences. 

There are reports Kim and Kanye were no shows, but take a look at the 2 pics of Kim and Kanye separately in what looks like the photo booth inside the party. 

Khloe shook her ass, Kendall sexed it up, and we'd say Kylie did the same but she's 17.

Bruce was a no show ... ditto Rob, Brody and Brandon

The bash was thrown at Kris' Calabasas mansion, where she had a giant tent constructed and laced with XMAS lights.

Is Kris Jenner the happiest person you've ever seen who went through a divorce?

10:45 AM PT -- Turns out Bruce did show up to the party ... and snapped a pic with his daughters.

brought home a new friend to meet the parents in Texas ... one Cara Delevingne!

Selena and Cara became fast friends this summer. We first saw them on a yacht in St. Tropez where they celebrated Selena's birthday and showered down together.

Fast forward to this week ... Selena went to her parents home outside Dallas for XMAS, and brought along Cara.

Selena and Cara hit up North Park Mall in Dallas, where they paraded around Victoria's Secret ... where they shopped for bras. They then made a beeline for Nordstrom, where they held hands and Cara slapped Selena's ass.

Justin who?

XMAS Wish

I Want My Son to Laugh Again

12/24/2014 8:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

122414_melissa_rivers_launchThis will make you cry.

Melissa Rivers had a very simple Christmas wish, which encapsulates the sadness and loss she experienced this year over what seems like the preventable death of her mom, Joan Rivers.

Melissa was leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood when a photog asked the simple question ... she wants 13-year-old Cooper to laugh again.

1224-cooper-rivers-joans-funeral-SUB-GETTY-01It was clear from the funeral ... Cooper is taking his grandma's death very hard.

It's one of those simple things people say that tells the whole story.
