Kim Zolciak I Scored Double-Digit Karats!

8/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-kim-zolciak-tmz-01Kim Zolciak's left arm is getting a serious workout thanks to the 11 karats worth of ice her husband just put on her for their 5th anniversary.

Kroy Biermann slipped the new diamond on her a few months early, but you know Kim's not complaining. The couple got married on 11/11/11 ... hence the karat count for the gift, we're told.

Our sources say the NFL linebacker dropped $100k on the piece and keep in mind ... Kim was already hauling a 10 karat engagement rock! Modern etiquette says 5th anniversary gifts should be silverware -- but imagine her face if he'd gone that route.

Kroy's playing for the Buffalo Bills this season, so Kim's gonna be solo in Atlanta for a few months.

The ring will keep her company.

Texans WR Jaelen Strong I'm Going to Drug School ... Thanks to Weed Arrest

8/27/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-jaelen-strong-GETTY-01Get your trapper keeper ready ... 'cause Houston Texans wide receiver Jaelen Strong is going back to school -- DRUG SCHOOL -- as part of the deal he cut in his weed arrest case. 

As we previously reported, the former Arizona State standout was popped in Scottsdale back in February ... when cops found him trying to hide a bunch of joints in the crotch of his pants. 

Strong was arrested and booked for possession of marijuana -- which carries a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail. 

But Jaelen caught a break ... cutting a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to enter a drug diversion program (an educational course that can take up to 6 months to complete) and undergo counseling ... and in exchange, officials will drop the case. 

It's a good deal for Strong -- just make sure you don't skip class! 

Snoop Dogg Let Ezekiel Elliott Smoke Weed ... NFL Rules Are Stupid

8/26/2016 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Ezekiel Elliott wants to smoke weed ... THE NFL SHOULD LET HIM SMOKE WEED ... so says Snoop Dogg.

Snoop is sick and tired of players getting punished for weed -- and he decided to vent about it while watching a segment about the Ezekiel Elliott pot shop story on ESPN's "First Take."

"The NFL is stupid for trippin' over motherf***ing weed," Snoop said. 

As we reported, Elliott didn't buy or smoke any weed Thursday in the Herban Legends pot store (it's LEGAL to sell weed for recreational use in Seattle) ... but Jerry Jones said the whole thing was a bad look

Snoop says he's NEVER heard of a player getting into some bad stuff because of weed -- while players get in violent situations because of alcohol all the time. 

One last thing, it sounds like Snoop is upset with Michelle Beadle and refers to her as "bitch" -- which, if that was his intent, would be misdirected ... as she was seemingly making his exact point. 

NFL's William Gay Loses Big By Winning ... Credit Card Roulette

8/26/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL player William Gay just learned a very important life lesson ... sometimes when you win, you completely freakin' lose in a major way ... especially when the game is credit card roulette.

Gay and his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates went out to dinner recently and the whole group of very large -- and probably very hungry -- athletes decided to settle the bill by playing credit card roulette.

If you don't know what that is ... it's when everyone who ate puts their card in a hat ... and the one that gets drawn has to foot the entire bill.

That was the story for William ... and James Harrison made sure to document the entire thing on video.

Tough break ... where's a rookie when you need one?

Ezekiel Elliott Marijuana Tourist ... During Seattle Road Trip

8/25/2016 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When in Seattle ... check out the LEGAL recreational weed shops -- that's what Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott did before preparing to play the Seahawks. 

The 21-year-old rookie hit up the "Herban Legends" weed shop in Belltown -- a 5 minute drive from the Space Needle -- where he checked out some of the merchandise Thursday afternoon. 

For the record ... our sources tell us they did NOT see Elliott make any sort of a purchase -- and we're told it's VERY common for tourists to just browse the weed shops while visiting town. 

0825_ezekiel-elliot_weed-shop_sports_wmElliott didn't seem like he was hiding or embarrassed to be there -- and even posed for pics with fans outside the shop. 

Despite the fact it's legal in Seattle, weed is still outlawed in the NFL -- and players who test positive for marijuana could be suspended. 

We reached out to the Cowboys for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Maurice Jones-Drew & Ike Taylor Run 'Ninja Warrior' Course ... Aren't Terrible

8/25/2016 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gotta hand out props when props are due ... and Maurice Jones-Drew and Ike Taylor deserve some for getting as far as they did on the "Team Ninja Warrior" course. 

The ex-NFL stars hit up Universal Studios Hollywood yesterday and put their skills to the test ... and it was all caught on video. 

Look, they weren't exactly Kacy Catanzaro out there ... but they managed to navigate a few of the obstacles -- which (if you watch the show) is a lot further than a lot of people get!

Fellas, watch the video below ... study ... try again. 

NFL's Devin Hester I'll Be Back In NFL ... 14 Teams Want Me

8/23/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-devin-hester-gettyDevin Hester ain't hanging up his cleats just yet ... telling TMZ Sports he definitely plans to be in the NFL next year ... and nearly half the league is interested. 

The 3-time All-Pro return specialist was released by the Atlanta Falcons this past July after battling a toe injury ... but that hasn't kept Hester from gunning for a return this season.

"I can't say much now, but I'm getting close," Hester says. "(I) got 14 teams waiting on me."

He wouldn't say which teams ... but Hester is considered the best returner in NFL history ... so it's no surprise there's a ton of squads looking to sign him. 

Get this man back in the league ... it's Madden season.

Antonio Cromartie New Colts Cash Well Spent ... Pays Off Back Child Support

8/23/2016 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-antonio-cromartie-tmz-01update_graphic_red_barCromartie's rep says the only reason he didn't pay the support is because he was fighting Pierre over custody. The rep claims she had ongoing legal issues, and says Cro felt Alonzo wasn't safe with her. update_grey_gray_barAntonio Cromartie took his $3 million deal from the Coltsand immediately used it to settle a child support dispute with a baby mama ... and avoided a possible arrest in the process.

Cromartie was delinquent on child support payments to Rosemita Pierre -- the mother of Alonzo, his oldest child ... aka #1 of 13. According to docs, AC was ordered to pay her $4,000 per month, starting in January 2016 but failed to do so.

He was due in a Florida court last week to either pay up or explain why he couldn't -- but Cro was a no-show. Then the cavalry arrived in the form of the Colts one-year contract ... which he signed Monday. 

We're told Cromartie made a payment Tuesday afternoon. It's unclear how much he forked over, but it was enough for the judge to withdraw a warrant that had been issued earlier in the day.

Crisis averted. 

Tre Mason's Mom to Cops Football Destroyed My Son ... 'He's Not Himself Anymore'

8/23/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tre Mason's mother has told police ... her son should NOT be playing football anymore -- because the head injuries he suffered in the NFL have had a devastating impact on his mental health. 

TMZ Sports has obtained police footage from a July 27th incident when cops cited the L.A. Rams running back for illegally riding his ATV around his neighborhood in Palm Beach, Florida. 

When they got to his home, cops told his family they were concerned Mason was too busy "f***ing around" and "should be playing football."

That's when Tre's mother dropped some real talk on the cops. 

"No, he actually shouldn't," she said ..."because this is the [side of] football that nobody knows about."

"He's 22 in a 10-year-old's mindset right now ... Tre's not himself at all."

Tre's mother says the family could see an obvious change in Tre's personality after the 2015 NFL season ended.

As we previously reported, Tre has been at the center of several police incidents in the past few months -- and his family clearly believes football is the root of the problem.

The Rams say they have not been in touch with Mason since last season -- and judging by the video, it doesn't seem like they'll ever hear from him again.

Robert Griffin III Wife Blindsided By Divorce ... Destroyed Over New GF

8/18/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0816_rg3_Rebecca-Liddicoat_Grete-Sadeiko_tmz_instagram_gettyRobert Griffin III and his wife have been separated for months -- after she found out he was dating a new woman ... and sources connected to the situation tell us she's absolutely devastated.

Sources close to the estranged couple tell us RG3 first met Florida State track star Grete Sadeiko through Instagram back in January ... roughly 7 months after his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, gave birth to their daughter.

We're told the social media relationship turned real ... and when Rebecca found out about her in April, she was pissed.

The two separated shortly after. They haven't lived together in months. 

But get this ... one solid source tells us Rebecca was still working on trying to save the marriage as recently as this week ... and was blindsided on Tuesday by news that RG3 is "in the process of filing for divorce."

Now, with RG3 getting Grete's name tattooed on his arm, we're told Rebecca has given up on a possible reconciliation.

Bottom line ... this was no amicable split.
