Floyd Mayweather's Dad

FALLS HARD

... At Pre-Fight Dance Party

60 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

At least ONE Mayweather went down this weekend ... Floyd's father ... who ate it HARD during a pre-fight concert ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Floyd Mayweather Sr. got up onstage and did his best James Brown impression to the tune of "Sex Machine" at the Fiesta Rancho Casino on Thursday. 

But while he was lettin' loose -- he lost his footing ... and went crashing down to the dance floor. 

The good news -- like a true pro, the 62-year-old popped RIGHT BACK UP and continued to dance ... even busting out the signature James Brown "Camel Walk" dance move.

MASSIVE Brawl Erupts

At Vegas Pool Party

5/4/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The REAL fight in Vegas went down the day after Mayweather-Pacquiao -- a huge melee at the Rehab pool party hosted by Ludacris.

The video is absolute INSANITY -- showing multiple brawls around the pool on Sunday at the Hard Rock Hotel -- fists, chairs, bottles, ice buckets and more were hurled. Even before the fight broke out ... you can see the crowd rip a door off its hinges to burst into the party! 

Jamie Foxx and Will Smith's son Trey were also at the party at some point -- though it appears they weren't involved or injured in the fight. Perks of VIP.

Here's the odd thing -- Vegas cops tell us they got no calls for this brawl. We've got a call in to the Hard Rock too.

Justin Bieber

'F*** Pacquiao!!!'

5/3/2015 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber was amped up at Rehab in Vegas before the fight ... singing to Big Sean -- which is surprising -- and making his feelings about Manny Pacquiao clear.

Justin partied with the crowd before walking out with Floyd Mayweather, and at 33 seconds you can see him mouth the words, "f*** Pacquiao" ... he then flips the bird.

It's also interesting he's felling Big Sean, whose breaking with Ariana Grande did not go well.  You'll recall he just gave her a squeeze from behind a few weeks back, which set Sean off.  We're told Sean doesn't have hard feelings for Biebs ... he thinks Ariana just used him.

Bieber knows how to have fun ... half the battle in life.

 

Jake Gyllenhaal

Not Moved By Jamie's National Anthem

5/3/2015 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar8:20 AM PT -- Jake's rep tells TMZ the actor was not passing judgment on Jamie's performance, saying,  he and Antoine "were laughing at something completely unrelated to Jamie's performance."

update_grey_gray_barJake Gyllenhaal was not impressed by Jamie Foxx's soulful rendition of the National Anthem, but at least he got in a few laughs.

Jake was sitting ringside with his "Southpaw" director Antoine Fuqua when Jamie took the mic.  No doubt Jamie struggled ... he took his earpiece out immediately which is a sign of technical trouble.

Jake and Anton yukked it up and Jake checked his texts, then briefly sung along.

But props to Jamie ... he was more exciting than the fight.

Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight

0530-private-jets-twitterIn case you wondered if the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight was a rich people's event, check out the aerial view of the private jets at McCarran International Airport in Vegas.

The pic was snapped Saturday and it makes it very clear ... you won't see many 7-figure figures sitting backwards on Southwest on the ride back.

There are so many jets it almost looks like a valet parking lot, where they squeeze the cars in so tight ... they have to move 2 in order for one to drive away.

Diddy

When in Vegas ...

Bring Extra Protection!

5/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy Mayweather Pacquiao PartyDiddy wants to leave the fighting to the professionals this weekend in Las Vegas, so he's taking extra precautions to make sure he doesn't get into any trouble during his Mayweather/Pacquiao party. 

The rap mogul is once again hosting a huge after-party for the fight at the Havana Room & Beach Club at the Tropicana -- but Diddy wants this fiesta to go smoother than his Super Bowl event ... where he got into a fight with a pissed off fan.

According to our sources, here's Diddy game plan:

-- his VIP section will be far away from normies (unlike SB weekend) 
-- 20 extra security guards to watch over his VIP section
-- guards instructed to immediately toss anyone heckling Diddy

Mo money, less problems ... that's the goal, anyway.

Adrien Broner

Cuffed in Vegas

For Fashion Felony

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing champ Adrien Broner was handcuffed and detained by cops in Las Vegas Thursday night, but not arrested ... and his people say it's all because an "a**hole security guard" didn't like the way he was dressed.

People in Adrien's camp tell TMZ Sports ... the 3-time world champ and 7 members of his posse went to Tao nightclub in the Venetian and plunked down $11k for a table. They say the host took the money and let them in, so they took the escalator up to the club and then things went south.

They say a security guard stopped them and said they had to leave because they weren't dressed properly, claiming their jeans and shoes were a deal breaker. Adrien got pissed and said it was hip-hop night and Fabolous was performing, so they were not only dressed appropriately but others were wearing the same thing.

The guard wasn't moved and ordered them to leave. Adrien refused so the guard called the cops.

Police came, cuffed Adrien and took him to a room. His people say police held the boxer for 20 minutes, let him go and then Adrien and his crew left the hotel.

Check out the video ... you hear Adrien say, "They're mad 'cause I'm rich" ... something that seems to be a theme when Broner meets cops.

Broner was arrested in Ohio back in January for DUI. The boxer humblebragged to the arresting officer he was "blessed" because he made more than $100 million in his career. He pled not guilty and the case is pending.

So far no comment from Tao.

Britney Spears

My Ankle's Busted

... Show Will NOT Go On!!!

4/30/2015 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears hurt her ankle so badly during her Las Vegas show Wednesday night, she's been forced to cancel two shows. 

Her shows for this coming Friday and Saturday will be rescheduled after doctors advised her not to perform ... opting instead to rest her injured ankle so it can heal.

So, now it looks like Britney has no plans on Saturday night ... or she will be front and center at the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight, which just happens to be the same night ...

See ya there, y'all!!!

Britney Spears

Down She Goes!

4/30/2015 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears went down hard during her Las Vegas show -- falling so hard mid-song ... it was up in the air whether she'd stay down or go on with the show.

She did both -- staying down, and dancing from her backside. 

Brit Brit rolled her left ankle pretty good, but managed to keep going through the end of "Crazy." 

Her dancers eventually helped her to her feet, and she seemed to walk it off. The fall looks nasty, but Britney assured fans later ... she's ready to get back in the game.

Off Mayweather/Pacquiao

EXCLUSIVE

0429-50-cent-performing-GETTY-0150 Cent is jumping on the money train this weekend, where he plans to score huge bank off the backs of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Club sources tell TMZ ... the rapper is getting half-a-million bucks Friday night for throwing down rhymes at Drai's.

Fact is, 50 may be hedging his bets. You may recall ... he's put $1.6 mil on the line, betting Floyd Mayweather will put Manny Pacquiao in his place.

And we're told he also made a deal with Effen Vodka to make around $500k for a show 2 weeks later at Pool After Dark in Atlantic City.

When it rains it pours.

Mayweather vs Pacquiao

Honey, I Shrunk The Fight

4/29/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao is the main event but even the under, under ... UNDER card has some big names -- in the little boxing world, anyway. 

"Mini Pretty Boy Money" and "Mini Pacman" went at it in the MGM Grand lobby on Monday ... not far from the full-size ring the resort is using to promote Saturday's huge bout.

You gotta see the stare down between the fighters -- absolutely menacing ... said no one.

But get this ... the ultra flyweights will really fight on Saturday night at Beacher's Madhouse and tickets ain't cheap. For $1500 you get to see Floyd and Manny on closed circuit, and then after that ... Mini Money and Mini Pac will go at it live. 

Our money's on a TKO (Tiny Knock Out).
