1228-anderson-silva-instagramHow does a guy who bashes people's faces in for a living bond with his family over the holidays?

If you're UFC superstar Anderson Silva ... SIMULATED WARFARE!!!

Silva -- currently training for a big fight against Michael Bisping on Feb 27 -- took 12 family members out to Hollywood Sports in Bellflower, CA this past Saturday for some yuletide paintballin' fun.

We spoke with the owner of HS ... who tells us Anderson is a frequent visitor and believes the time shooting at each others heads promotes family unity ... and helps work off all that turkey.

How hardcore is Silva about his paintball? We're told he owns his own custom-made military grade tactical gear ... and loves to compete on the "Saving Private Ryan" battle course.

Still ... he's one of the only guys we can think of who's more dangerous WITHOUT a gun.

Exclusive Details

1221-girl-facebook-katy-perry-burned-christams-card-facebook-5Beyonce just trumped President Obama and Insane Clown Posse with the Christmas card she sent to 8-year-old Safyre Terry.

We're told Bey's camp reached out to Safyre's family earlier in the week to keep an eye out for a package.

She was true to her word. A card arrived in the mail, along with a handwritten message from Bey: "To My Survivor Safyre! You are such an incredible inspiration. Have a beautiful holiday."

But wait ... there was more --  a "Flawless" t-shirt and a cool headband.

1223-beyonce-safyre-cards-lauber-01Safyre's family tells us she's a huge fan of Queen Bey and can't wait to wear the tee.

The outpouring has been incredible and there's still a garage full of letters yet to open.


Phaedra Parks My Kids Won't Spend Christmas In Prison

12/25/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1217_Apollo-Nida_Phaedra-Parks_TMZ_gettyPhaedra Parks feels like Santa arrived earlier this year, because he's already given her kids a gift ... they won't have to go to prison this year to visit their dad.

Phaedra's uneasy that the kids have been visiting their father, her estranged husband Apollo Nida who's doing hard time.

We're told Apollo's been moved to a new facility and the kids -- 2 year-old Dylan and 5-year-old Ayden -- haven't been approved for visitation, and that's not expected to happen until after the holidays.

The kids have been video chatting with their dad everyday and they sent him an Xmas care package, but we're told Phaedra is relieved they haven't been approved yet because she thinks the kids are too young to handle visits to prison.  

Apollo's serving an 8 year sentence for bank fraud

Barack Obama Trail Blazer Hiker Begs Prez for Legal Weed

12/23/2015 12:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama ran into an impromptu weed lobbyist in Hawaii Tuesday -- when a hiker came face to face with the Commander In Chief and asked him to "legalize it on your way out!"

Hard to gauge Obama's reaction -- but we think we heard him chuckle a bit as he continued on his way. 

It's no secret Obama smoked a ton a weed back in the day -- but says he's not a fan of the ganja anymore and has told his daughters it's a bad idea. 

Still, watch the clip ... it'll make you giggle -- whether you're stoned or not. 


Kardashian's 2015 Christmas Card Missing All The K'S

12/23/2015 12:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1223-kardashian-kids-twitterThe annual Kardashian Christmas card was just revealed ... and surprisingly, there's not a single person with the famous last name on it.

Kim just posted the pic, showing the family's new generation with North, Penelope, Reign and Mason all dressed in black. It's obviously missing Saint but we're not sure he was even born when the pic was taken.

It's interesting ... there was a lot of buzz about how this year's card would look considering everything that's gone on with the family, but at least everything seems kosher with the kiddies.

12/23/2015 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Paul and Kevin Hart are in the holiday spirit -- sending 300 kids on a $100 toy shopping spree ... but there was one big rule everyone had to follow! 

It all went down at a Target store in L.A. -- where the two were hosting their 2nd annual Holiday Takeover event ... to benefit kids from several L.A. youth organizations including the Brotherhood Crusade and the Boys & Girls Club. 

So, what was the ONE rule the kids had to follow before being unleashed into the toy paradise???

Check out the clip ... it's pretty adorable -- and props to CP3 and KH for doing a nice thing.

For the first time in years, "Inside the NBA" star Kenny "The Jet" Smith says he WON'T be working on Christmas day ... and he's fired up about it.

Floyd Mayweather's Bodyguard Best Xmas Gift Ever? ... Floyd Once Gave Me ...

12/23/2015 7:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

What do you get for a Christmas gift when your boss is the highest paid athlete in the world?

That's what we asked Floyd Mayweather's bodyguard Big Church at LAX Tuesday ... and his answer didn't disappoint. 

Big Church -- part of  the "The Great Wall" security squad that protects Floyd -- says every day is like Xmas with Floyd (since they travel all over the world together) ... but  there's one gift that stands out. 

BTW, this year alone ... Big Church has been to Rome, Dubai, Moscow, Milan, Saint-Tropez, Monaco, Turkey, London, L.A., NYC, Vegas, Miami, Havana and more. 

... and all while traveling in private jets. 


Dodgers Justin Turner Santa's Little Helper ... Even In Jail

12/22/2015 12:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1222_Turner_santa_claus_la_county_sherriffs_departmentIt sucks for kids when your mom is in jail -- but Dodgers star Justin Turner did a really cool thing this weekend ... helping the children of inmates celebrate the holidays ... and even handing out gifts. 

Turner went to the L.A. County Jail in Lynwood, CA as part of a program that rewards female inmates who enroll into educational programs while doing their time. 

1222_Turner_santa_claus_la_county_sherriffs_department_SUB-2But this time the reward was for the kids -- because the children of all women who enrolled got a brand new bicycle for the holidays ... and Turner was there to help give them out! 

"This is what it’s all about," Turner said ... "seeing a smile on a child’s face is the best feeling."

Sergeant Peter Gomez -- who helped coordinate the event -- added, "We know that the holiday season can be an emotional time. It's hard on the mothers who are in jail and it is especially hard on their children who come visit them. So we did what we could to shed a little joy during Christmas time."

Pretty cool stuff. 


Safyre Terry Christmas Greetings From The White House!!!

12/22/2015 11:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1221-girl-facebook-katy-perry-burned-christams-card-facebook-5Safyre Terry's Christmas card collection just got the Presidential seal of approval ... she just got a card from President Obama and the First Lady!!!

The envelope arrived Tuesday -- just in time for Christmas -- with a signed photo of the First Family and their dogs, Bo and Sunny.

FLOTUS also wrote a personal message for Safyre, who lost her family and was badly burned in a 2013 fire. "With your kind heart and courageous spirit, we know there is no limit to what you can achieve in your life," wrote Michelle. "So always dream big dreams, and remember that we believe in you."

Safyre's still holding out for her dream card from Katy Perry, but the White House ... pretty awesome.

12/22/2015 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1222_richard_simmons_house_christmas_carol_SPLASHEven Christmas carolers can't get Richard Simmons to come out of hiding.

It's like a page was ripped out of a Charles Dickens novel ... carolers serenaded Simmons at his Hollywood Hills home  ... to no avail.

Simmons hasn't been seen in almost 2 years, even cutting ties with some of his closest friends. His rep told us he's just enjoying life out of the public eye.
