Keyshawn Johnson Accused of Knocking Up Side Chick ... Key Calls BS

9/21/2017 9:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshawn's Johnson has struck again ... allegedly. 

The ex-NFL star has been hit with paternity docs by a 35-year-old woman who claims 45-year-old Key knocked her up back in 2016 -- and she's demanding child support for her 4-month-old son. 

But Key says the allegations are 100% false. 

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman has demanded a paternity test to establish Keyshawn as the father -- and once it becomes official, she wants at least $4,346 per month in support. 

The rub ... Keyshawn is still legally married to another woman, Jennifer Conrad, and was at the time of the alleged conception. 

Interesting note ... Jennifer had initially filed for divorce in March 2015 -- but they reconciled ... until August 2016 when she told TMZ Sports the divorce was back on for good.

At the time, it was unclear why the reconciliation went south.

We spoke with Key's attorney, Aja Mann, who tells us, "The allegations are absolutely false."

More legal drama for Ricky Williams ... the ex-NFL star was arrested in Texas this week on traffic warrants.

The ex-Texas Longhorns running back didn't appear too concerned when the time came to snap his mug shot -- he even broke out a smile.

Cops say the 40-year-old Heisman Trophy winner was pulled over on Tuesday for a routine traffic stop -- and when cops pulled his records, they noticed an active warrant for his arrest.

Williams was hauled to Travis County Jail -- but he's out now.

No word about why there was an active warrant out for him in the first place. We're working on it.

Albert Haynesworth: My Baby Mama Attacked Me ... I Have Witnesses

9/20/2017 11:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL superstar Albert Haynesworth claims he's the victim of domestic violence -- alleging his baby mama physically and verbally abused him ... and TMZ Sports has the police report.

The drama between Haynesworth and his ex, Brittany Jackson, went public Wednesday when she accused him of skipping out on child support for their young son. 

Jackson's a former college basketball star who says she also played in the WNBA. 

Haynesworth -- who reportedly made more than $50 MILLION during his NFL career -- fired back with allegations of his own. 

"Not only has she called me unthinkable names she has been extremely violent," Haynesworth claims.

The 6'6", 350-pound defensive tackle says he called police on the woman more than 10 times during their rocky 2-year relationship. 

"I have witnesses and bruises but me for some reason still tried to protect her by not sending her to jail bc I didn't want to ruin her so called career and name."

TMZ Sports obtained a police report filed back in January in which Haynesworth told police in Tennessee that Jackson kicked him in the groin twice after an argument at a friend's house. Albert told cops she had been drinking wine. 

According to the police report, Haynesworth refused medical attention. Albert never pushed forward with charges. 

Haynesworth claims his ex, who is white, would call him the n-word -- despite the fact they have a mixed race child together -- because "she said she wanted me to feel hurt bc I didn't show her affection."

Haynesworth adds, "Being a man I am a provider and protecter I have millions of faults that are not flattering but NO ONE deserves to be mentally and physically abuse!!!"

We reached out to Haynesworth's ex multiple times for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's today's TMZ Sports "Did you know," and it's starring NFL superstar Von Miller.

Did you know that Von Miller's heart was the key component in a rap song made by hip-hop super producer Mike Will Made-It?

Neither did we, but Mike told us the story when we got him out at LAX, revealing that he sampled Miller's ACTUAL HEARTBEAT for the song "Heart of a Lion," by YG.

Check out the track, you can clearly hear Von's drum thumping before and during the beat ... and it's pretty dope. We only have one question.

Miller can't get a feature for that? C'mon, Mike.

The woman accusing NFL line judge Carl Johnson of domestic violence was a police officer in Louisiana for more than 5 years ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We've called the TPD multiple times about the matter -- but have not received a call back. 

We broke the story ... the woman has told police and other law enforcement officials Johnson physically attacked her multiple times in 2016 and 2017. Johnson adamantly denies the allegations.

RG3 Santana Moss Betrayed Me I Didn't Brag About Shanahan Firing!!

9/19/2017 8:51 AM PDT
Breaking News

Robert Griffin III is flat-out denying Santana Moss' story claiming he bragged about getting Mike Shanahan fired from the Redskins ... saying "to openly lie about me is a betrayal."

ICYMI -- Moss opened up about his time with RG3 and the Redskins on Monday ... saying the Heisman-winning QB gloated about Shanahan presumably getting canned over his lack of playing time.

But RG3 says the story is complete B.S. ... and just responded to Moss on Twitter "No subtweeting needed. Santana Moss, I treat you like a brother & have always had your back. To openly lie about me is a betrayal....."

"Some so desperately want me to fit this negative narrative that has been pushed about me. But I don't fit it. Never have. Never will."

"Proved it in Cleveland. Voted Captain. Came back to play for my teammates just to help us win 1 game. With a broken shoulder. Stop the lies."

There's a lot more in Moss' interview with 'Dukes vs. The World' on 106.7 The Fan ... he hints that RG3's current unemployment is karma for the way he acted in Washington.

Gisele Bundchen What, Me Worry about Tom and Ivanka?

9/19/2017 7:14 AM PDT

Gisele Bündchen was flyin' solo Monday, arriving at Boston Logan Airport shortly after former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci strongly insinuated Tom Brady didn't attend the Super Bowl celebration at the White House because Gisele had a jealousy thing over Ivanka Trump.

Gisele had been in Brazil to attend the Rock in Rio concert.

Scaramucci co-hosted "TMZ Live" Monday and suggested Tom and Ivanka had dated back in the day, and Gisele didn't want the 2 to interact. Sources connected to Ivanka told us, Tom and Gisele were friends but had not dated. BTW, in 2004 Trump mused it would be cool if Ivanka and Tom hooked up.

NFL Line Judge Under Investigation for Domestic Violence ... Denies Wrongdoing

9/19/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NFL line judge Carl Johnson -- the former head of officiating for the league -- is under investigation for an alleged pattern of domestic violence in Louisiana, though he's adamant the accusations are BS, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Johnson's accuser is a 49-year-old woman who told police she and Johnson had been living together in 2016 when the NFL official became aggressive. She claims Johnson first got violent in December and during the incident, Johnson hit her so hard, he busted one of her breast implants.  

The woman claims she went to the NFL in March hoping the league could help her out. Unclear what happened next but a few months later, she went to police.

Court officials in Louisiana confirmed the accuser requested a temporary restraining order against Johnson and it was granted. But a request to make the restraining order permanent was rejected at a later hearing.  

But it's not case closed ... a rep for the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office confirmed to TMZ Sports that the case involving Johnson and his accuser is still under investigation.  

Sources connected to the case tell us Johnson has denied all allegations of domestic violence and vows to continue to fight the case. 

We spoke with the accuser who claims she has photos and audio recordings to back up her allegations.

Of course, in the wake of the Ezekiel Elliott situation -- the league believes it has the right to impose punishment on NFL players and other staff for domestic violence without a conviction in a court of law. Elliott feels differently. 

We reached to the NFL to see if it was investigating Johnson -- so far, no word back. But we do know Johnson has been working NFL games. He was the line judge during Monday Night Football in Week 1. 

TMZ Sports reached out to Johnson who told us, "No comment."

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? 

Anthony Scaramucci: Gisele Blocked Tom from White House ... Jealousy Over Ivanka?

9/18/2017 1:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci believes it was Gisele who stopped Tom Brady from joining the Patriots on their Super Bowl trip to Donald Trump's White House ... strongly insinuating the supermodel didn't want Tom around Ivanka Trump.

The Mooch -- Trump's former White House communications director -- guest hosted "TMZ Live" Monday -- when we asked straight-up about the alleged rift between the POTUS and the GOAT.

A.S. says he didn't have direct knowledge of the situation -- but strongly suggested Gisele shut Brady down ... saying, "I think she's possessive of him and probably didn't want him there."

Mooch suggests Gisele may have been jealous of Ivanka Trump -- saying he thinks Brady and Ivanka may have dated at one point in the past.

In fact, back in 2004 ... Donald praised Tom as a great guy who would make a "great combination" with Ivanka.

Despite the Moochsinuation, a source connected to the Trump family tells us, "While they have known each other for years, this is not true."

For the record, Tom claimed the reason he missed the White House visit was to spend time with his ailing mother.

Miami Dolphins head coach, Adam Gase, doesn't seem like a man concerned with the health of linebacker Lawrence Timmons -- he seems pissed off. 

We broke the story ... the Dolphins filed a missing persons report with police after Timmons disappeared from the team's Southern California hotel Saturday night.  

Timmons was found by LAX police early Sunday morning after he was trying to board a flight to Pennsylvania. ESPN has reported Timmons was supposed to meet with team doctors Monday. 

But when Gase was asked about the player and his situation -- he gave short answers and told reporters he hasn't spoken with LT and has no idea where he is right now. 

When asked if he's expecting Timmons to remain on the team moving forward, Gase said, "I have nothing to add for what I have right now. Really, just gathering a lot of information ... and I got a few other things I gotta deal with, with the guys that played yesterday."

Yeah, doesn't sound good. 

NFL's Lawrence Timmons Dolphins Had Filed Missing Person Report

9/18/2017 9:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Miami Dolphins were so concerned when linebacker Lawrence Timmons went AWOL on Saturday, a team rep filed a missing persons report with police ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Here's what we know ... the Miami Dolphins team was in Southern California on Saturday to play the L.A. Chargers on Sunday.

When the team checked to make sure the players were in their rooms by curfew, Timmons was not there. 

Our sources say the team scrambled to find him -- calling family and close friends before ultimately filing a missing persons report with local law enforcement.

The good news ... cops found Timmons at LAX early Sunday morning in a boarding area in an effort to get to Pennsylvania. A team rep met Timmons at the airport and left with him. 

So, why Pennsylvania? We're told Timmons had spoken with his baby mama who lives there and had told her he missed the baby and wanted to visit. He was serious about visiting her.

Timmons is now back with the team and is scheduled to meet with doctors, according to ESPN.
