Kim Kardashian Love for Sean Payton ... No Bush? No Problem.

3/31/2016 10:17 AM PDT

There were tons of big stars at Craig's Thursday night -- Viola Davis, Paul Haggis, Nick Jonas -- but Kim Kardashian only stopped to talk to one person ... Saints head coach Sean Payton

A TMZ staffer inside the restaurant saw the whole thing unfold ... Kim walked into the joint with her good friend Lil' Kim in tow -- "The entire restaurant stopped to look at them. People were in awe."

Kim noticed Payton sitting with 4 other dudes at a table in the middle of the restaurant -- and walked right past other stars (including Haggis) to say what up! 

Payton got out of his seat and gave Kim a huge hug -- and congratulated her for a recent accomplishment. She was very appreciative. 

Of course, the two go wayyy back ... they first met around 2007 when Kim was dating Reggie Bush who played for Payton's Saints. 

Nearly 10 years later ... and with Bush out of the picture for both parties ... they clearly still like each other. Wonder if she's still a Saints fan? 

NFL's C.J. Spiller Packing For The CFB Playoff ... With $10k Bags

12/19/2015 12:35 AM PST

Saints RB C.J. Spiller just dropped $10k to celebrate a team that's actually making the playoffs ... copping a super sick python skinned luggage set in honor of his college squad, Clemson. 

Spiller wanted to travel to see his top seeded boys in style ... so he hit up the guys over at Louis Stewart -- the dudes that made D'Angelo Russell's $15k bag -- to create some custom, ACC champ inspired swag.

The two-piece bundle includes a backpack and a tote, both purple python skinned with orange trim featuring Spiller's number 28 stitched inside.

How much for this show of school spirit? A little over $10k.

It's good to be a pro, right C.J.?

Cam Jordan Calls BS On Ass Slap Allegations ... 'Ridiculous'

9/9/2015 3:00 PM PDT

New Orleans Saints superstar Cam Jordan says he's no ass-slapping maniac ... denying ALL allegations he went crazy inside a New Orleans nightclub. 

As we previously reported, Jordan was named in a police report by a woman and her boyfriend who claim the NFL star got handsy in the club, sprayed them with champagne and called the lady a "bitch."

But in a statement issued through his attorney, Jordan says he did NOTHING WRONG -- "The allegations in this police report are ridiculous. Cam Jordan did not cause a disturbance of any kind."

"This complaining individual is apparently a jealous boyfriend who followed Mr. Jordan into the men's bathroom. "

"Mr. Jordan did not commit any criminal offense whatsoever and continues to remain cooperative with any law enforcement inquiry into this situation."

Exclusive Details

TMZ Sports has obtained the Cameron Jordan police report -- in which one witness claims the New Orleans Saints player stated in the nightclub, "I can have any bitch that I want."

Jordan is under investigation for allegedly slapping a woman's ass at Republic nightclub in N.O. and then spraying her and her boyfriend with champagne in an aggressive manner. 

According to the police report, the accuser's boyfriend told cops he confronted Jordan about his disrespectful actions toward his GF in the restroom -- and that's when Jordan said, "I can have any bitch that I want."

The BF says he told Jordan, "She was not a bitch. She's my girlfriend."

The man claims Jordan condescendingly asked, "How much do you weigh? 180?" 

The BF told him he weighed 190 -- and that's when Jordan allegedly picked him up and "held him high in the air against his will while passersby took pictures." 

Cops were notified and began investigating and the sex crimes unit was contacted to look into the alleged ass slap

Cops say there is no surveillance footage of the incident -- but they did note that there were roughly 10 other Saints players in the club that night.

Drew Brees & Matt McConaughey TOSSIN' BEADS ... In French Quarter

5/10/2015 11:30 AM PDT

Here's a cool video ... New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees hangin' out on his balcony with Matt McConaughey ... and tossin' out beads to people on the streets.

So ... why?

The guys teamed up to hand out clues and rewards in a scavenger hunt for charity -- and one of the challenges was to go to Drew's pad and sing to the guys ... in exchange, participants got beads.

It was all to benefit Matt's "j.k. livin" foundation and Drew's "Brees Dream" org. -- but you can tell the guys are having a blast together ... and even got their families involved.

Check out the video ... the footage is really fun.

Darren Sharper 'He's Disgusting, Beyond Repulsive' ... Says Ex-NFL Teammate

3/23/2015 10:51 AM PDT

One of Darren Sharper's former New Orleans Saints teammates is FURIOUS over his 9 year prison sentence -- claiming Sharper is "beyond repulsive" and says the punishment is "way too short."

We spoke with ex-NFL linebacker Scott Fujita -- who won a Super Bowl with Sharper in N.O. in 2009 -- and he couldn't believe prosecutors in Nevada and Arizona will only require Darren to serve 9 years for drugging and raping multiple women. 

"He was a great teammate, a great player," Fujita says ... "But all that aside, it's disgusting and beyond repulsive."

"Look, I'm a dad of 3 daughters ... If he ends up only serving 9 years, it's an absolute shame. It's way too short."

Rob Ryan My Son's a Model ... And He's Hot!!!

3/10/2015 7:34 AM PDT

Soooo ... Rob Ryan's son is a male model.  And he has abs. 

For those unfamiliar, Rob is the defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints ... and he's the twin brother of Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan

The Ryan brothers aren't exactly known for having shredded physiques ... but in the case of Joe Ryan, sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree.

Joe recently moved to L.A. for modeling ... and his dad came to town to visit.  

In fact, we ran into the two on their way into the Lakers game at the Staples Center ... but for some reason, we just didn't connect the dots. 

Ex-Super Bowl Champ Investigated Over Body Slam Allegedly Attacked College Student

11/3/2014 12:45 AM PST

A former NFL lineman -- who now coaches college football -- is being investigated over footage that allegedly shows him body-slamming someone in the school gym ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The man at the center of the investigation is Charles Grant -- a 2002 1st round NFL draft pick who won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints in 2009. He's now the linebackers coach at Bowie State University in Maryland. 

Multiple witnesses tell us Grant is the man in the grey shirt in the video ... who confronted another man in the BSU gym Thursday. We're also told the other man in the video is a student on the football team. 

You can see in the footage things get heated ... and the large man in the grey shirt attacks and body-slams the other man. Even raising his fist at one point ... before pulling back. 

We made multiple calls to Grant and his people -- but never heard back. 

We also reached out to BSU officials who only told us, "The Athletic Department has been made aware of the incident and we have initiated an investigation."


10/16/2014 6:15 AM PDT

Don't judge Drew Brees by his Fantasy numbers -- he's still "ONE OF THE GREATEST QUARTERBACKS IN THE WORLD" ... so says Brad Pitt.

The Sexiest Man Alive (1995, 2000) was leaving an event in Washington D.C. last night when we asked if he had any advice for the New Orleans Saints QB -- who hasn't exactly been posting those legendary Fantasy stats we're used to.

That's when Pitt -- a HUUUGE Saints fan -- set our TMZ Sports photog straight with a strong defense of the former Super Bowl champ. 

Pitt and Brees happen to be friends -- earlier this year, they were spotted throwing a football around with Matthew McConaughey from the balconies of their expensive Bourbon Street pads. 

But the bottom line, if you're even THINKING about benching Brees on your Fantasy team this weekend -- as one ESPN article suggests -- you might wanna consider Brad's advice first. 

Drew Brees ENDS WAR WITH EX-TEAMMATE After Losing $160k In Bad Investment

9/26/2014 12:45 AM PDT

Drew Brees is finally calling off the dogs on a former Saints teammate who allegedly screwed him out of $160k ... more than a year after battling the guy in court ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Brees had sued former Saints longsnapper Kevin Houser -- claiming the guy (who became a licensed security broker) duped him into buying $160k worth of tax credits from a defunct movie studio that turned out to be bogus and worthless.

Houser had fired back -- saying he NEVER had a deal to represent Brees in the transaction and says Drew simply made a stupid investment and should just take his loss like a man. 

Now, we've learned ... the two sides have struck a settlement -- and though the terms are confidential, it's pretty safe to assume Houser probably had to kick over some cash.

We reached out to both sides for comment -- so far, no word back.

For the record, Brees signed a $100 million contract in 2012 ... so clearly, this wasn't about the money -- it was personal.

Drew Brees DRESSES UP IN COSTUME ... to See 'Noah' Movie

3/25/2014 6:01 AM PDT
Breaking News
Drew Brees and his wife saw the "Noah" movie the other day ... IN COSTUME ... two by two.

The New Orleans Saints QB and his wife went to a screening of the new Russell Crowe flick by their home in San Diego ... wearing full bible regalia. 

Brees -- known as one of the religious guys in the league -- even had a tin foil ax for good measure. 

After the movie, Brees tweeted about the experience ... saying, "Saw @NoahMovie the other night at Cinepolis. Opens 3/28. Very intense! #thefloodiscoming."

We get the hashtag is for the movie, but weird since he's so strongly connected to the rebuilding of N.O. after the Katrina floods. 

Still, looks like he had fun!

Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins Yo Philly, Please Buy My Bow Ties ... I Owe My Wife a Car!

3/18/2014 12:30 AM PDT

The Philadelphia Eagles made a huge upgrade this off-season in the fashion department -- their new safety Malcolm Jenkins has plans to dominate the rough and tumble world of bow ties.

The ex-Saints star tells TMZ Sports he's not abandoning the Rock Avenue Bow Ties biz he started last year in New Orleans -- and instead plans to expand in his new hometown.

Jenkins says, "I'm gonna go around the city and see about getting the bow ties into retail stores."

Jenkins started rocking the Pee Wee Herman look back in 2010 -- his 2nd NFL season -- and says he decided to launch his own company when he couldn't find enough variety in stores.

Malcolm joked he really needs a sales spike in Philly to pay off a lost bet with his wife -- ""I owe her a G Wagon." 

Something tells us his 3-year, $16.5 million Eagles contract will take care of that.

Still, MJ's company got a nice boost last week when his ex-teammate Roman Harper wore a Rock Avenue t-shirt ... while getting baptized!

C'mon, Philly -- if it's good enough for Jesus ...
