Rivero says the final product -- painted with purple and gold Ravens colors -- costs about $1,000 to complete.

We're told Terrell plans to wear the cleats on Sunday against the Jaguars.

0923_gilbert_arenas_laura-govan_tmzGilbert Arenas has won a battle against Laura Govan, but he hasn't won the war -- a judge just ordered her to pay him A LOT of money in one of their lawsuits against each other. 

As we previously reported, Arenas sued his baby mama for libel after she allegedly wrote a nasty email about how he gave her STDs ... and then leaked it to various media outlets.

The ex-NBA star claimed the email humiliated him and affected his ability to work on his app without distraction. 

Arenas just got a default judgment in the case, in which the judge ordered Govan to pay $110,110 for his emotional distress. 

Arenas was looking for seven figures, but the judge said there was not enough evidence to award that amount -- and also took into account that Govan said she "has very limited financial means at this time."

Metta World Peace Allegedly Terrorized By Deranged Woman Slashed Tires, Stalked Kids, Violent Threats

9/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-metta-world-peace-TMZ-01Metta World Peace claims he and his family have been targeted by a deranged woman who's threatened violence, attacked his property and waited for his kids after school ... and now, he's obtained a restraining order against her.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Peace went to the LAPD and told cops a "stranger," named Miesha Shakes, had been harassing him in a series of disturbing emails dating back to 2015.

Peace says the emails contained violent threats -- including one that read, "I apologize in advance, I'm going out with a bang. This will be the worst thing to ever happen in Westwood. Call cops I'm ready."

She also threatened to attack his car, accused him of raping women and threatened him with a knife ... Peace alleged in court documents.

Peace claims she made good on some of her threats -- throwing a brick through a window in his building and slashing his tires.

He also claims she physically attacked his 19-year-old daughter and "was waiting outside for my 13 yr old daughter after school."

Peace is clearly scared -- and asked the judge to keep her "1 million" yards away from his family, home, workplace, kids' school and "Earth."

The judge ultimately ordered the woman to stay 100 yards away from all of the requested places ... except Earth.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for later this month.

Derrick Rose Rape Accuser Must Reveal Identity ... Judge Rules

9/20/2016 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0920-Derrick-Rose-gettyThe woman suing Derrick Rose for allegedly gang raping her with his friends may no longer use a pseudonym and MUST reveal her identity when the case moves forward ... a judge has ruled. 

The woman filed her lawsuit under the name "Jane Doe" in an effort to stay anonymous and protect her privacy. 

Typically, the law allows someone who claims to be the victim of a sex crime to file a lawsuit under a pseudonym to protect their privacy rights.

But Rose filed court documents saying Doe has abused the privilege by going on a "nationwide pretrial media blitz" over the past week ... which included phone interviews and a news conference.

Now, it seems the judge agrees ... with U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald ruling that she must disclose her real name when the case goes to trial.
