Breaking News


It's a homecoming for the St. Louis Rams -- NFL owners just approved the franchise returning to Los Angeles, and the vote wasn't even close. 

The owners met in Houston on Tuesday to decided which teams if any would be moving. The Rams, Raiders, and Chargers all applied to make the jump to L.A.

The vote was 30-2 in favor of the Rams getting the nod. The Chargers were a sort of runner-up ... they got first option to go to L.A. later, and would share the stadium the Rams are building in Inglewood ... next to the Fabulous Forum where the Lakers used to play.

The Raiders will have 2nd option to move ... if the Chargers stay put in San Diego.

Titans' Kendall Wright Baby Mama's Car Repo'd ... After Child Support Demand

1/11/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0108_Kendall-Wright_komccoyTennessee Titans star Kendall Wright has serious off-season headaches ... his baby mama is taking him to court for child support, and thinks he's getting revenge by repossessing her car.

In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Kortney Michelle Owens-Rader says she has a 5-month-old baby boy with Wright named Kendall Jr. -- and the Titans leading receiver agreed in December to pay her $2,100/month in child support, starting in 2016. 

The docs make it seem like everything's cool between Kortney and Kendall, but sources close to her say that's not the case. We're told Wright had been "taking care" of Kortney -- a singer signed to Floyd Mayweather's record label -- but nothing was on paper.


Cut to last week when, according to our sources, Kortney's 2014 Cadillac XTS -- a gift from Wright in happier times -- was repossessed. We're told Kortney thinks Wright stopped making payments because he was pissed she took him to court.

This probably won't get better ... they're due back in court in a couple of months. We've reached out to Wright's reps, but nothing back yet. 


Deion Sanders My Face Is Still Prime Time For My Son's Clothing Line

1/11/2016 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0108_Deion-Sanders_TMZDeion Sanders is putting his face front and center in the fashion game ... and it's generating big bucks for his son's clothing line.

Deion Sanders Jr. is the creative force behind Well Off, a streetwear clothing brand ... and its bestseller is a t-shirt with Dad's iconic Jheri curled image from the 1989 NFL draft.

Deion Jr. -- who's currently playing football at SMU -- tells TMZ Sports, he chose the image because it represents his brand to a tee ... "Well Off is about being that way mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and financially. That picture just showed [dad's] hard work had paid off."

0108_Deion-sanders-shirt-welloffforever.comSanders Jr. says Deion and his mother, Carolyn, chipped in to help him get started. So, it couldn't hurt to put the main investor on some gear. By the way, since Jr. is an NCAA athlete ... his sister handles the money for Well Off.

Sr. says he's impressed by his son's entrepreneurial spirit ... "He's not dependent on the NFL or me to define who or what he is. I'm a proud father indeed."

Michael Keaton My Steelers Are Toast!

1/11/2016 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Keaton should've been celebrating after his Pittsburgh Steelers yanked the Bengals' beating hearts out of their chests -- but, NO ... instead he was pissed about Antonio Brown's concussion.

We got Batman/Birdman leaving dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica this weekend, and the only thing on his mind was Vontaze Burfict's illegal hit on the Steeler's superstar receiver in the closing minutes of that wild playoff game.

Superfan Keaton's reaction to Brown's injury? Check out his prognosis ... it ain't pretty.

Greg Hardy Can Still Be Saved ... Says Ex-Cowboys Star (and Ex-Convict)

1/10/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Greg Hardy's days with the Cowboys might be numbered, but a former Dallas star -- who recently got out of prison himself -- thinks he can put the controversial player back on the path to success.

Eugene Lockhart -- a star linebacker for the 'Boys from 1984 to 1990 -- served 3 years in the federal pen for taking out fraudulent loans in the early 2000s. Lockhart got out last summer, and says he sees a lot of himself in Hardy.

Lockhart says he now realizes how immature he was as a young player -- "Staying out late, the alcohol, drugs just not living the right way we took a lot for granted and when we see guys like [Hardy] it starts reminding you of yourself. There is no doubt, he needs a mentor.”

Since getting out, Lockhart says he's studied seminary at Southern Bible Institute and he ministers people in his community now. He wants to add Hardy to his flock ... "My son talks to him a lot and has been asking me to mentor him so I will be really interested to do it”.

Although Eugene never had domestic violence issues, he thinks he can make Hardy realize he's pissing away his talent. He plans to reach out to Hardy this weekend ... even as Cowboys brass start debating whether to re-sign him.

SF 49ers Sued for Booting Service Dog and Owner

1/9/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The San Francisco 49ers booted a fan and his service dog from Levi's Stadium which made the fan have a seizure ... according to the lawsuit he's now filed against the team.

James Hilburn says he and his Alaskan malamute, Bear, had no problems entering the Niners-Cardinals game on November 29 -- the ticket taker let them in, no questions asked. In his suit, Hilburn says he suffers myoclonic dystonia ... which causes seizures. Bear is trained to alert him and people nearby when one is about to hit.

In the lawsuit, James says once he entered the staidum, police and security guards surrounded him and said Bear was not allowed to be there -- and the stressful situation triggered a seizure.

TMZ Sports obtained video Hilburn's friend shot, and you can hear Bear yelping a warning. Police and stadium staff attempted to get a shuttle to pick them up, but Hilburn declined. He did end up suffering, and had to be hospitalized, according to his lawyer Mark Thomas.

Hilburn wants the team to pay for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We reached out to the 49ers who told us they do not comment on pending litigation.

Seth MacFarlane There Was No Plan B for ... Tom Brady's Sperm

1/8/2016 3:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Seth McFarlane's go-to set o' gonads belong to one Tom Brady ... as we learned when Seth dropped some "Ted 2" trivia on us.

The Patriots QB turned in an Oscar-worthy performance in Seth's hit movie last year. If you haven't seen it, the role centered around Brady's balls ... and NOT the deflategate ones.

We got Seth outside the Palm in Bev Hills, and asked who would've stepped in if Brady wasn't available -- after all, New England has no shortage of sports heroes. Gronk, Bird, Big Papi???

Seth did eventually offer up one possible backup plan, but God ... we hope he was kidding.

Seriously, he was kidding. Right? 

Common HGH Is A Cop-Out Great Athletes Don't Need It!!!

1/8/2016 12:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rap star Common says there are no shortcuts to greatness ... and athletes who use HGH can never, ever be compared to legends like Michael Jordan and LeBron James ... who did it au naturel.

Common was out in Beverly Hills when we talked all things sports with him ...  and when the conversation turned to HGH ... the Chicago rapper sounded off.

HGH is a hot topic right now ... with everyone from Mark Cuban to Chris D'elia weighing in on whether or not its time for the sports world to accept the health benefits the drug can offer.

Check it out -- Common's not the type of guy to diss anyone -- but he makes it clear -- HGH just takes all the wonder and fun -- out of professional sports.

Hope no MLB Hall of Fame voters see this ... for some guys' sake.

Cam Newton 'I Wanna Be' Kids Show Was Stolen ... Author Claims

1/7/2016 4:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0107-cam-newton-nick-logo-GETTY-02Cam Newton's side job -- hosting and producing a kids show for Nickelodeon -- could be in jeopardy ... because the show was allegedly ripped off from a children's author.

The author, Nick Katsoris, just filed a lawsuit over "I Wanna Be" ... the show where the Carolina Panthers superstar QB will help kids make their dreams come true. In his suit, Katsoris says he went to Nickelodeon twice to pitch a show based on his 2007 "Dream Day Contest."

The contest featured a character called Loukoumi the Lamb -- from his series of books -- and asked kids to finish the phrase, "I WANT TO BE A _____ BECAUSE ..."

According to the suit, Katsoris hired talent agency IMG to produce a reality show special, which aired on FOX in October 2014.

He then pitched it to Nickelodeon in July 2015, and then a couple months later ... the network announced it was doing "I Wanna Be" with Cam, an IMG client.

Katsoris says they merely swapped "Loukoumi for Cam Newton." He wants the court to block Nickelodeon and IMG from using the title, and to stop the release of the show later this year.

Eric Davis Chill, Raiders Fans You're Not Losing Your Team!

1/7/2016 9:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Raiders, Rams and Chargers fans up in arms about their teams trying to bolt to Los Angeles are looking at this the wrong way ... according to former NFL star Eric Davis.

Davis won a Super Bowl with the 49ers, so he's up on Bay Area fans -- and we asked if Oakland's Raider Nation might jump to the other team in town if the Silver and Black head south again. It's the question millions of fans in St. Louis (who've also been through this before) and San Diego are asking themselves right now.

Well, check out ED's answer ... it might calm nerves in all 3 cities. In a nutshell -- rep your team, not your city.

You buying that?
