NFL's Pouncey Bros Miami Strippers CRUSH Pittsburgh ... Here's Why

6/25/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Anyone debating the quality of booty clubs in Miami & Pittsburgh LISTEN UP ... the NFL's Pouncey Twins are about to tell you why ass shakers in south Florida SLAY the girls in Steel City.

We got Maurkice and Mike out at LAX and asked the pair which city had a leg up (or two) as far as the beautiful ladies of the pole & and stage are concerned.

Remember ... Maurkice plays in Pittsburgh, and Mike balls down in Miami -- so we're thinking these two might have a little insight on how things go down.

The twins don't hesitate in tapping Miami as the go-to spot for twerk art ... but the reason why will leave you saying "Hey, that makes a lot of sense."

BTW -- The guys say they weren't aware they'd flown into L.A. on the greatest strip club weekend of the year ... but when we told them they had ... they didn't complain about it.

Von tried to keep a low profile -- rocking his hoodie on the way in ... but everyone else was pretty friendly ... waving at fans on the way in and out. 

How was your Thursday night?

The fund was specifically created to provide support to the victims of the Pulse tragedy and their families.

"We give our heartfelt condolences to those impacted by this horrific act and are hopeful that these donations help in their time of need.”

John Elway Responds to Von Miller Photo Diss ... 'That's Too Bad'

6/24/2016 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

John Elway is finally responding to Von Miller's Instagram diss -- and he seems disappointed in the NFL superstar. 

Elway -- the Exec. VP and GM for the Broncos -- was leaving Craig's in L.A. Thursday night when we asked how he felt about Von cutting him out of a pic he took with Elway and other teammates at the White House earlier this month. 

Miller cut Elway out of the pic to show his displeasure with the Broncos 6-year, $114 million contract offer ($40 mil guaranteed) ... an offer Miller feels is WAY too low.  

Elway responded to the slight last night -- and it seems obvious their relationship is still icy as ever.

Ben Affleck Slurring, Ranting On HBO Talk Show

6/22/2016 8:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

(WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)

Ben Affleck appeared on the series premiere of Bill Simmons' "Any Given Wednesday" and it was extremely bizarre ... to say the least.

A red-faced Affleck ranted about "Deflategate" on the HBO show and even though we can't say for sure what was up with him ... social media was quick to call Affleck out for his slurred speech and angry tone.

Sources close to Affleck tell us he's stone-cold sober, and the slurring is just how passionate he is about Tom Brady. We're told he and Simmons got into a heated, loud debate before cameras started rolling. So when the taping started at 11 AM, Ben was already fired up.

Watch the clip -- this is one way to get a buzz ... for Simmons' show.

Dez Bryant Sued Allegedly Trashed Texas Mansion ... 'Trash, Feces, Odors'

6/22/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0622-dez-bryant-tmz-02Dez Bryant has been sued for allegedly causing more than $60,000 in damage to a Texas home owned by a state senator ... a man who claims Bryant left the home littered in "trash and feces."

The man behind the lawsuit is Royce West -- a member of the Texas senate -- who says he rented out his 6,400 square foot 6 bed, 7.5 bath mansion to the Dallas Cowboys WR from 2013 to 2016. 

In the suit, West says Bryant was paying $4,720 per month ... and agreed to leave the home in good condition. 

0622_dez_bryant_house_launchBut West says ... when Bryant left the home in January, the place was a disaster ... "a state of serious disrepair."

In fact, West says the place was covered in "animal feces, trash, missing blinds and shutters, with cracked windows and blackened carpeting."

He says there were also "distinct and pervasive odors throughout" the home.

West says he was forced to undergo a MASSIVE cleanup to restore the home including: 

-- removing trash and furniture

-- repainting the entire residence 

-- cleaning, removing and replacing flooring and carpeting 

-- replacing the lighting and ceiling fans 

-- replacing windows and screens

-- replacing the home security system 

In the end, the repairs cost $61,546.77. 

BTW, this is the home where Dez famously lived with his pet monkey last year. Unclear if that explains the animal feces. 

West says he approached Bryant and his team and demanded the money for the repairs -- but Bryant threw up the X ... and never forked over the dough. 

West says he's been unable to rent the place out due to the damage and repair work -- and wants a TON of cash from Bryant ... somewhere between $100k and $200k. 

We reached out to Bryant's reps -- so far, no word back.

Johnny Manziel Another Mysterious Car Wreck

6/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621_johnny_manziel_crash_car_launchMore troubling photos involving Johnny Manziel -- a car owned by the ex-NFL star was clearly involved in a bad accident in Dallas ... with the driver's side completely smashed in. 

TMZ Sports obtained pics of Manziel's 2015 Nissan GTR -- the same car he was driving during his alleged domestic incident with his ex-GF, Colleen Crowley, last year in Ohio. 

Multiple sources tell us the car appeared Monday night at a Dallas apartment complex where Manziel is supposedly staying ... looking like it had been T-boned. You can see in the pics the driver's side airbag was deployed. We've confirmed the car is still registered to Manziel.

We don't know how it happened, who was driving, or if Manziel was even in the car at the time. Cops tell us they have no record of a crash involving Manziel. We're trying to find answers. 

We've reached out to Johnny's rep and Johnny himself -- but so far, no word back from either. 

Just a few months ago, Manziel was involved in another bad accident on the Sunset Strip -- when a Mercedes he was in crashed into a pole. He was unscathed in the wreck. 

NFL's Davone Bess Held Himself at Knifepoint ... Cops Sicced Dog On Him

6/21/2016 2:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0621-davone-bess-mug-shot-TMZ-SPORTS-02More troubling details from the arrest of ex-NFL wide receiver Davone Bess -- now cops say he held a knife to his own throat ... and a K9 unit was used to take him into custody. 

As we previously reported, 30-year-old Bess fled from cops during a routine traffic stop in Arizona early Monday morning. 

Cops tell us ... as they pursued Bess he rolled down his window and began making gestures with his hand shaped like a gun and motioning that he was shooting the officer.

Bess hightailed it away from officers in his Mercedes -- but was tracked down at his home. 

Inside his residence, cops say Bess would go to the window and front door -- flashing a knife to cops ... and occasionally holding it up to his own throat. 

Eventually, cops decided they needed to take action. 

"For Bess’ own safety it was decided to get him in custody as quickly and safely as possible. At this point a police K-9 was released and the K-9 bit Bess on the left forearm just inside the front door of the residence," cops say.

"Bess was then taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for the dog bite and a mental evaluation." 

He was later booked on several accounts -- and is still in police custody.

Dez Bryant No Hazing Ezekiel Elliott 'We Need His Mind To Be Right'

6/21/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Don't expect to see Ezekiel Elliott wearing a pink tutu on the Dallas Cowboys practice field this fall ... 'cause Dez Bryant says EE is totally in the clear when it comes to the subject of rookie hazing.

We got Bryant at LAX (walking with ZERO limp, rejoice Dallas fans) and asked him if he was looking forward to making Elliott pony up some major cash for the rookie hazing dinner.

It's an interesting question for Bryant ... if you remember he famously rejected aspects of hazing when he was a rookie ... refusing to carry pads for Cowboys veterans back in 2010.

Elliott won't have to go through it either according to Dez ... who told our guy EE is off the hook for two reasons ... the Cowboys don't haze anymore ... and Elliott is too important to be mentally terrorized.

Check out the clip -- and imagine what Elliott would've looked like in that tutu.

NFL's Dashon Goldson I Respect Ayesha But I Don't Want My Lady Tweeting Like That!

6/18/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It might be time for Steph Curry to have a Twitter boundaries talk with wife -- at least according to NFL safety Dashon Goldson who says that's what he would do if his lady pulled an Ayesha. 

Dashon -- who spent 9 years in the NFL -- says he likes that Ayesha does her thing on social media ... but if he was in Steph's shoes, he'd try to explain why calling out the NBA is a HUGE distraction during the NBA playoffs. 

BTW, Goldson was leaving Barney's in Bev Hills where he dropped $5k on his dad for Father's Day, which is THIS SUNDAY.

Go get your dad a gift -- consider this your warning. 

Johnny Manziel Goodbye Cleveland 'Sold' Sign on Suburban Crib

6/17/2016 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0617-johnny-manziel-house-sold-TMZ-SPORTS-02Johnny Manziel just cut his last tie to the city of Cleveland ... cause there's a "SOLD" sign on the front of his nice suburban home, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Manziel bought the 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home -- in a private golf course community -- back in May 2015 ... one year after the Browns selected the QB in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. 

He paid $438k for the place ... but after the Browns cut his ass, he put it on the market for $489k hoping to turn a $50k profit. 

Good news for Johnny ... he got a bite. We're told the deal isn't "officially" done but it's expected to close soon. In fact, the realtor's so confident, there's already a "sold" sign on the front lawn. 

No word on who bought the place or how much they paid -- but here's some advice ... get the place deep-cleaned before you move in.
