3/23/2018 4:00 PM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. Sued For $15 Mil Over Alleged Brutal Assault

3/23/2018 2:45 PM PDT

3:22 PM PT -- Beckham Jr. vehemently denies the allegations, and issued the following statement through his attorney, Daniel Davillier:

"Ishmael Temple has expressly acknowledged in his own lawsuit that Odell Beckham, Jr. never once touched him; and yet, Mr. Beckham is being sued for an alleged altercation that definitively did not involve him at all." 

In the statement, Beckham's legal team also claims Mr. Temple arrived at the party drunk, belligerent and made threats to several attendees ... at which point he was repeatedly asked to leave. They claim he was repeatedly asked to leave, and got into a fight -- but NOT with Odell -- and was then escorted off the premises.

They point out, Temple himself says Odell wasn't involved in the physical altercation -- but they claim he demanded money from Odell. 

Davillier added, “This guy claims somebody assaulted him to near death, but there’s no police report, no hospital record, no evidence of an actual injury, and he asserts that Odell is responsible. This is clearly a frivolous lawsuit. We’ll see him in court.”

Odell Beckham Jr. is being sued by a guy who claims all he did was go to Beckham's house and he got the crap beaten out of him.

Ishmael Temple claims in a new lawsuit he's been friends with Beckham. Temple claims he was invited to Beckham's home in January. He says he was shaking hands with people inside the home and went for the hand of Beckham's hired muscle, Charles Puryear, when the bodyguard pulled out a gun and pointed it toward him, saying, "I bet you've never gotten shot before."

Temple says he then pulled Beckham aside to tell him what happened and says Beckham just laughed it off and told him to relax. He says 20 minutes later, when he was ready to leave, another guy punched him in the back of the head and Puryear joined in, stomping Temple.

Temple says he blacked out and woke up to kicks to his face and Beckham did not order security to stop.

He says the beating stemmed from an incident the week before, when he says Beckham's security verbally assaulted him when he sought to retrieve his phone from Beckham's house. He thinks security resents him because, "as a Hollywood social event organizer, [he] knew many of the female ladies present at Beckham's residence."

Temple says he was beaten to a pulp ... his 2 front teeth got chipped and his lip was busted. He says his earring got ripped out of his ear and his knee got messed up.

Temple says he's spent $18k just to fix his teeth.

And there's more ... Temple, an event organizer, says he's been blacklisted as a result of the fight.

He's suing for $15 million.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex to Judge Don't Let Famous CTE Doc Take Stand ... He Don't Know Me!!!

3/23/2018 11:14 AM PDT

Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex says no way in hell a famous CTE doctor should be allowed to testify in their divorce case ... claiming the Dr. never treated him.

Ed Hartwell filed legal docs in Fulton County, Georgia asking the judge NOT to allow Keshia's legal team to use Dr. Bennet Omalu as an expert witness. Omalu, of course, is the real-life doctor who inspired the Will Smith movie, "Concussion." 

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Ed -- who played 6 seasons in the NFL -- claims Keshia's playing dirty by bringing Dr. Omalu in at the last minute, and, even worse -- Omalu never examined or interviewed Ed, and to Ed's knowledge, has not reviewed his medical records.

This is the latest in their nasty divorce case. As we reported ... Ed filed for divorce and Keshia shot back, asking that Ed undergo a mental evaluation ... claiming he wanted to kill their unborn baby.

NFL's Zay Jones Family Forking Out $20k for Damages From Bizarre, Bloody Arrest

3/23/2018 10:24 AM PDT

Zay Jones won't face criminal charges for shattering a penthouse window because his family is covering the cost for repairs ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to the L.A. County District Attorney ... there was no proof the Bills wide receiver acted with malice or wrongful intent. That seems odd, considering the video we got of Jones running naked in the hallway of the downtown L.A. building right before he kicked out the 30th floor window.

However, the D.A. also says the building wasn't looking to press charges ... most likely because Zay's family was extremely cooperative and told the building manager they'd cover the damages. According to docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, that's about $20,000.

We broke the story ... Jones was arrested Monday night for felony vandalism after getting into a naked altercation with his brother, Cayleb Jones of the Minnesota Vikings ... breaking the window and bleeding all over the hallways.

The Bills and the NFL still haven't said if Zay will face any league punishment.

Sean McVay Suh To Rams Not A Done Deal ... But We're Hopeful

3/23/2018 9:54 AM PDT

Sean McVay says anyone thinking Ndamukong Suh to the Rams is a done deal should pump their brakes ... telling TMZ Sports the deal is anything but done yet.

There was some speculation that Suh had settled on the Rams because after meeting with L.A. he canceled scheduled meetings with some other teams.

We got McVay out at LAX and asked the head man in L.A. if the Suh era in Tinseltown was a forgone conclusion, and Sean was cautiously optimistic at best.

"We'll see, excited about Marcus and Aquib, and if we're able to make that other move that'd be good for us, but we'll see. He's got a lot of other teams that want him."

Coach is totally Hollywood now ... he's mastered the cliffhanger.

Troy Aikman on Josh Rosen 'Throws As Well As Anyone I've Ever Seen'

3/23/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Troy Aikman says Josh Rosen ain't just any ol' QB prospect ... the UCLA star tosses the ball as good as anyone he's ever seen fire the pigskin on the football field.

We got Aikman in Beverly Hills after he dropped sweat at a SoulCycle class (get it, Troy!) ... and he broke down the consensus of the top 3 arms in this year's class -- Rosen, Sam Darnold and Josh Allen.

Troy had nice things to say about the whole trio ... but gave Rosen the highest compliment imaginable.

"Josh is a real talent. I watched him throw a few years ago at UCLA one summer. He can throw as well as anybody I’ve ever seen," Aikman told TMZ Sports.

Naturally, Troy says that makes Rosen worthy of the #1 pick next month -- but he ain't guaranteeing that's gonna happen.

Now, we feel like we should point out that Aikman was a UCLA Bruin just like Rosen. Take that however you want!
