Pras from the Fugees I've Made $250K on Tom Brady Bets

9/19/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pras from The Fugees says he's incredibly grateful to Tom Brady -- because the QB has helped him win roughly $250,000 in NFL bets!

Yeah, he's dead serious. 

Pras is a huge New England Patriots fan -- and tells TMZ Sports he's used some of his hip hop fortune to fund some massive sports betting over the years ... including a $100k bet on Super Bowl LI.

"In the Super Bowl this year, at the end of the 3rd quarter, my friend called me and bet me $100,000 'cause he thought it was over ... and I took him on, and I won $100,000."

The only catch -- Pras says his boy still owes him $30K ... and he's callin' him out to pay up!

Meantime, how 'bout sending Brady an autographed album or something? Least you could do, right? 

Tom Brady You're On Drugs If You Think He's Done ... Says Ex-Teammate

EXCLUSIVE

If you think it's time for Tom Brady to retire ... PUT DOWN THE CRACK PIPE, so says Brady's old teammate ... who believes anyone saying he's washed up has gotta be on drugs.

TMZ Sports spoke with Jermaine Wiggins -- who won Super Bowl XXXVI with the Pats -- about New England's week 1 loss to the Chiefs ... and he says TB12 naysayers don't know football.

"The people that say he's finished, those generally are the people that have no clue what they're talking about," Wiggins says. "They don't know their ass from their elbow."

Wiggins says the loss to the Chiefs will end up being water under the bridge once the Pats win their next 10 games.

Tom Brady says he doesn't have any sort of relationship with Colin Kaepernick -- explaining, "I've never really had a conversation with him."

The New England Patriots QB called in to WEEI radio on Monday and was asked if he's been paying attention to the Kaepernick saga -- and the ongoing national anthem demonstrations around the league. 

Brady says he doesn't give Kaepernick much thought because his attention "goes a lot of places" at this time of the year ... and he's too busy to think about Colin. 

Tom was also pressed on if he was proud that his teammates don't sit or take a knee during the anthem -- to which he explained, "I don't really pay attention to that." 

As far as Tom's non-relationship with Colin -- Kaepernick went to bat for Tom back in 2015 during the Deflategate scandal ... saying, "No football in the world is going to help you win by 38! Let it go and let Tom be great!"

New England Patriots Reward Tom Brady Stolen Jersey Hero ... Front Row Seats!

Breaking News

Remember that kid who singlehandedly sniffed out the SCUMBAG who stole Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey??

Well, Robert Kraft definitely does ... and he just hooked that dude up with FRONT ROW TICKETS!!

Remember, 19-year-old Dylan Wagner was the guy who figured out it was Mauricio Ortega who jacked Tom's uniform and passed the tip to police ... which led to that raid in Mexico.

Well, Thursday morning Wagner got a personal visit from Pats owner Bob Kraft -- who came bearing some serious thank-you gifts.

Among the goods, Kraft presented Wagner with tix to NE's home opener against the Chiefs (seat #12, seriously) and an autographed (not stolen) Tom Brady Jersey.

He also got a pair of Robert Kraft Air Force 1s (which were released Thursday) -- which run $140 a pair.

As for Ortega ... anyone ever hear from that guy??


Tom Brady Fans Sing 'Happy Birthday' ... At Pats Practice

8/3/2017 10:00 AM PDT

Tom Brady turns 40 today -- and the fans in Boston let him know it with a screaming rendition of "Happy Birthday."

As Tom took the field at New England Patriots training camp Thursday morning, dozens of fans decked out in Pats gear -- some holding "Happy Birthday" signs -- belted out the song. 

Tom smiled and waved. 

The team also brought out a bunch of goats for the G.O.A.T. -- they're really blowing this thing out. 

His wife, Gisele, also posted a HBD message for him -- saying he makes 40 look like 20. She's right. 

Marshawn & Macklemore Mocking Tom Brady ... In New Video

8/2/2017 9:33 AM PDT
Breaking News

Macklemore is using Marshawn Lynch to fire shots at Tom Brady -- with ball deflating jokes and a jersey theft ... and it's all in his new music video.

M & M know each other from Seattle -- and hooked up for Macklemore's new track with Lil Yachty called "Marmalade." The main theme seems to be messing with Brady and the Patriots.

Of course, the Patriots beat the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX after that insane decision to throw the ball from the 2 yard line instead of giving it to Beast Mode.

Clearly, both guys remember.

Marshawn makes a funny cameo in the video -- masterminding a Tom Brady jersey theft ... obviously inspired by Mauricio Ortega, the guy who jacked Brady's real uniform after Super Bowl 51. 

Funny to us. Wonder if Tom's laughing?

Robert Kraft to Meek Mill: Wanna Try On My Super Bowl Ring!?

Breaking News

Robert Kraft's got a new homie, Meek Mill -- and he likes the rapper so much, he let him wear his brand new Super Bowl ring! 

The New England Patriots owner ran into Meek in Miami -- and the two hit it off. Shouldn't be too big of a surprise considering Kraft is tight with Meek's MMG label owner, Rick Ross.

Remember, Kraft once let Vladimir Putin try on a Super Bowl ring and the Russian leader straight JACKED it.

But Meek's no Putin -- he gave the ring back (good thing, since he's still technically on probation).

Bill Belichick Smilin' Wide With GF 6th Ring Coming Soon??

Breaking News

Here's proof Bill Belichick is secretly a happy, smilin', ooey-gooey romantic ... courtesy of a lovey-dovey photo shoot with his girlfriend!!

The New England Patriots coach showed off his MUCH softer side with his longtime GF, Linda Holliday, for N Magazine ... strolling through meadows, holding hands, and other mushy stuff.

B.B.'s only wearing one of his Super Bowl rings, though (he went with S.B. 49) ... and even lets Holliday wear it on THAT finger for a couple pics.

The shoot almost comes off as a wedding photo shoot.

Soooooo ... Bill gettin' another ring this year???

Tom Brady Belly to Fat Belly ... With Sumo Wrestlers!

Breaking News

Tom Brady is now picking on fat guys ... taking on sumo wrestlers in Tokyo -- and the good news, he didn't get wrecked!

TB12 and his son, Jack, got a private workout while on tour with Under Armour in Asia this week ... and the 5-time Super Bowl champ hilariously tries to join the fun by grappling with a guy twice his size.

Spoiler alert -- big guy didn't budge. But at least he didn't get sumo powerslammed. We've seen that before ... 

Gotta give Brady credit for trying -- he even ditched his shirt to show off his 39-year-old dad bod physique -- but it's pretty weird to see him not dominate something for once.

Rob Gronkowski I Lost My Shirt at the Casino ... Turns Up with Flo Rida

Rob Gronkowski proved he's shaved from head to toe -- ripping off his shirt and partying with Flo Rida at Shrine at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut ... and we got the pics.

The New England Patriots TE showed with a party crew and went H.A.M. when Flo started performing -- doing his usual dancing, boozing, removing clothing thing.

Gronk and Flo have been friends for a while -- the rapper was a special guest on Gronk's legendary party cruise last off-season.

Per usual with Gronk, the guy goes on a party tear before the season begins ... and Tom Brady has previously said he doesn't care as long as the guy shows up ready to play when it counts.

No word on if anyone ever found Gronk's shirt.

Tom Brady's Dad Patriots QB 'Wouldn't Tell Us' If He Suffered Concussions

6/13/2017 6:32 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Brady's parents were in the dark about the QB's concussion situation last year -- but his father says the Patriots star wouldn't tell them if he suffered one anyway. 

Tom Brady Sr. spoke with The Boston Globe about the controversy surrounding TB12's brain -- ever since Gisele went on TV and said he definitely had a concussion last year, despite no injury report from the Pats.

"We didn’t get to any games last year, except the Super Bowl, so I wasn’t aware of his health condition throughout the year. He wouldn’t tell us."

Brady Sr. also said the topic of concussions is "inflammatory" -- adding, "It’s a hot-button issue, so if somebody alludes to something, it’s going to be blown up whether it’s a big deal or not."

"I think every parent that sees their kid playing football knows that these guys are big and fast and things can happen that aren’t always good ... Hopefully, if something does happen, it will be dealt with as intelligently as possible."

Bill Belichick Passes Buck In Tom Brady Concussion Controversy

Breaking News

Bill Belichick finally addressed Gisele's claim that Tom Brady has suffered multiple concussions over the years -- despite no formal injury report from the Pats -- saying dealing with injuries is "not really my job."

The Patriots head coach addressed the media in Foxborough early Tuesday morning and was asked for the team's response to the comments Gisele made on "CBS This Morning" back in May. 

Belichick deflected -- though he said the team files injury reports "in compliance with league guidelines."

When pressed further about how he deals with possible player injuries, Belichick passed the buck ... saying when it comes to the "injury situation" ... "that's not really my job."

"That's what we have medical staff for."

Imagine getting a personal tour of Patriots headquarters with Julian Edelman -- capped off with a Madden showdown in the STADIUM VIP CLUB!

That's exactly what happened to 3 awesome kids on Thursday, by way of the Make-A-Wish Foundation ... and it was every bit as cool as it sounds!

Edelman (it's really him, he's just beardless now) met up with Dante (8), Carlos (17) and Tyler (14) and granted their wish to hang with the Pats star.

He even fired up Madden for a Super Bowl 49 rematch -- Pats vs. Seahawks -- and check out how fired up JE gets when his team reached paydirt.

Great game. Great day. Props to everyone involved.
