Eli Apple's Mom War Over NFL Star's NCAA Rings ... After Nasty Divorce

9/25/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The mother of NY Giants cornerback Eli Apple is locked in a bitter war with the husband she JUST divorced -- cops are involved ... and Eli's college championship rings are caught in the middle.

You know Eli's mom -- her big, outgoing personality earned her a gig on ESPN right around the time he was drafted in 2016.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Annie Apple and Tim Apple (the man who raised Eli) split and their divorce was finalized back in June. They were married for 16 years and Eli even took Tim's last name in 2012.  

But things have gotten bad and the family is divided.

Eli's brother, Dane Blackson, tells us ... Annie arrived to the family home in NJ on Wednesday with a police officer in tow looking to take back a bunch of Eli's football memorabilia. 

Some of the items she wanted include the 2014 Big Ten and National Championship rings Eli won at Ohio State.  

But Dane says he refused to hand over the rings, claiming Eli gifted them to Tim as a thank-you for helping him get a scholarship to OSU in the first place. 

Things got contentious ... but police tell TMZ Sports no one was arrested and Annie eventually left without incident. 

So, what will happen with the rings? Both sides believe they have a valid claim to them. Sounds like Eli will have to personally get involved to help work things out. 

We reached out to Eli and Annie for comment -- so far, no word back.

Queen Latifah Canceling St. Louis Concerts Won't Fix Issues There

EXCLUSIVE

If Queen Latifah quit doing concerts everywhere a cop got away with killing a black citizen ... she'd have no place left to perform, according to her.

Ed Sheeran and U2 canceled St. Louis concerts over the weekend amid violent protests of a white police officer's acquittal for shooting and killing a black motorist. Important to note, neither Ed nor U2 was boycotting, it's just that St. Louis PD said it was too busy handling protests to do the usual concert security.

When we got Latifah at LAX Sunday we asked her if she'd perform in St. Louis, but her response makes it clear she thinks the problem goes wayyy beyond that city.
