DeAndre Hopkins Throws Punches ... In Niners-Texans Brawl

8/15/2018 9:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

DeAndre Hopkins had to dodge punches like they were Iggy Azalea dating rumors Wednesday ... 'cause 49ers cornerback Jimmie Ward tried to mess up his face during practice!!

It all went down in Houston -- where the Niners are in town for a joint workout with the Texans -- when Hopkins didn't like that Ward ripped off his helmet during a 1-on-1 rep.

The superstar wide receiver shoved the DB ... took a swing -- and then had to FIGHT FOR HIS LIFE as the whole 49ers squad swarmed.

D-Hop was eventually taken to the ground and a pig pile formed ... but when it all unfolded, everyone was alive and practice carried on.

We're sure Iggy's relieved ... maybe.

49ers Honoring Montana, Dwight Clark ... With 'The Catch' Statue

Breaking News

The 49ers are paying tribute to the guys behind the most famous play in the team's history -- erecting a 2-piece "The Catch" statue at Levi's Stadium featuring Joe Montana and Dwight Clark

Clark died in June at the age of 61 after his battle with ALS -- and it seems the 49ers are pushing the plans forward to honor him as quickly as possible. The team is also wearing #87 stickers on their helmets this year. 

As for the statues -- Dwight's sculpture (full arms outstretched) will stand exactly 23 yards from his QB ... to replicate the moment from the 1981 NFC Championship vs. the Dallas Cowboys. 

 Dwight's statue will stand 11 feet tall. Both pieces will weigh 350 lbs. 

Clark had a huge career for the Niners after being picked in the 10th round of the 1979 NFL Draft ... winning two Super Bowls and having his No. 87 jersey retired in 1988.

Chandler Parsons Respect For Porn Stars ... But, I'd Never Date One!!

7/27/2018 6:38 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the NBA's greatest playboys has weighed in ... and sorry, Jimmy Garoppolo -- Chandler Parsons says dating a porn star is a line he wouldn't cross.

"You know what, I respect their hustle," Chandler tells TMZ Sports ... "But, I don't know if I could ever be in a relationship with one."

Chandler's shacked up with celebs (Bella Thorne), models (Toni Garrn) and even hot chicks that have been in Playboy (Arianny Celeste) ... but, he tells us public restaurant dates with porn stars are just something he can't do.

Not that it matters now -- Parsons says his run as the Association's top stud is over ... 'cause he's happy with his smokin' hot model GF, Cassie Amato.

Are wedding bells in their future?? Parsons wouldn't say yes ... but he didn't exactly give a hard no either!

Lil Wayne To Kyle Shananan Thanks For Naming Son After Me ... Gifts For You!!

7/26/2018 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne just showed 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan that flattery will get you everywhere ... lacing the 49ers coach and his son with gifts after finding out the kid was named after him.

Ex-NFL QB Phil Simms revealed a couple months ago that Kyle's son, Carter, is named after Wayne because the head coach has just that much admiration for the rapper/mogul.

Tunechi must've just heard about it (he's on tour, give the man a break) because he just sent over some cool merch, including signed copies of his albums, and a personal message of appreciation to the family.

Seems like all the 49ers are making celebrity friends these days ... wonder what Jimmy G got signed?

Jimmy Garoppolo Breaks Silence on Kiara Mia 'Good Learning Experience'

7/25/2018 12:12 PM PDT
Breaking News

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo sounds like he regrets his very public date with porn star Kiara Mia ... implying that he's going to be much more careful when he's out in public. 

It was just last week that Jimmy G and Kiara hit up Avra restaurant in Beverly Hills arm in arm -- and toasted wine together for everyone in the place to see. 

Jimmy finally faced the media at a 49ers event moments ago and was asked about the date. He did not wear it like a badge of honor. 

"Life is different now," Jimmy said ... "My life, off the field -- I've never really been big on being very public with things even on social media. I'm not on there a ton. But my life's looked at differently."

"I'm under a microscope. It's like [49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan] said, it is a good learning experience. Just have to take it in stride. It is what it is."

Remember, Kiara told us the date went VERY well and she sounded optimistic about seeing Jimmy again. 

Don't hold your breath ... 

Kiara Mia Jimmy G's Great for My Bottom Line!!!

7/23/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The debate is over ... 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's very public date with porn star Kiara Mia is a tremendous move, financially speaking -- for her, anyway. 

According to 2 leading porn sites -- Pornhub and xHamster -- Kiara's searches ass-tronomically spiked after TMZ Sports broke the news about her date with Garoppolo in Bev Hills.

PH tells us the already sought-after Latina adult star racked up 200,000 searches in just 24 hours -- a massive 2,309% increase over her daily average.

It's a similar story for Kiara on xHamster, which says searches for the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" porn spoof star more than doubled the day after her rendezvous with Jimmy.

The VP of the site tells us they're looking to cash in too with a new project for her called, "xHamster's in the Endzone with Kiara Mia." She hasn't accepted the offer yet.

NFL fans have been debating whether Jimmy will lose endorsement dough, but there's no question the QB's giving Kiara a major boost.

Jimmy Garoppolo Targeted By Adult Sponsor ... After Porn Date

7/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Garoppolo's new porn-star-loving image may not be so bad for business after all -- he's already getting new endorsement offers ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

No, they're not coming from church groups or family friendly companies -- we're talking weed and porn. 

After the 49ers star was seen out with Kiara Mia -- the marijuana-themed porn site XBlaze.com fired an offer letter to Jimmy hoping to sign him as a spokesperson. 

"We want to offer you the opportunity to be a spokesperson for our company, as both an advocate of marijuana and cannabinoids as well as the adult entertainment industry."

It's a long shot Jimmy actually comes to a deal with the site ... but who'da thunk Jimmy would go public with a porn star in the first place? 

Joe Theismann Cool With Jimmy G Dating Porn Stars ... Let Him Live!!

7/20/2018 4:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's nobody's place to tell Jimmy Garoppolo to stop dating porn stars -- not even the San Francisco 49ers ... so says Joe Theismann.

The NFL legend joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (weeknights on FS1) and he was clear in his message to those criticizing the QB for his public date with Kiara Mia -- let Jimmy G live.

"Just because it doesn't fit in to what everybody feels like it should, doesn't necessarily mean that you have to tell somebody how to live their life," he says.

Joe also tells the guys he never had thoughts of dating somebody in the porn industry when he played ... but there's no way he'd hold it against a teammate if they wanted to go that route.

"[Teammates] don't tell people who to go out with," he says.

Mark Cuban Jimmy G's Porn Star Date ... Won't Burn Bridges

7/19/2018 10:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Garoppolo has nothing to fear about losing endorsements or pissing off his bosses just because he's dating a porn star ... so says none other than NBA team owner and "Shark Tank" star Mark Cuban.

Mark says he's had players on the Dallas Mavericks who have dated porn stars in the past, and it's never been an issue -- with one caveat. If they try to hide it, they're screwed.

Cuban thinks Jimmy actually did himself a big favor because he's coming off as authentic ... and, in the world of advertising, there's nothing more important than being real. 

TMZ broke the story .. the 49ers QB took porn legend Kiara Mia out to dinner in Bev Hills Wednesday night.

Jerry Rice Busts Out Topless Stripper Moves ... Again

7/17/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Rice is gunnin' for a new G.O.A.T. title after yet another memorable weekend trip to Lake Tahoe -- Greatest Of All TOPLESS!!

The 49ers legend was back at the annual American Century Celebrity golf tourney earlier this month ... where he stripped off his shirt and got down like Channing Tatum to R. Kelly's "Bump N' Grind."

He danced with a bunch of chicks ... doing some pelvic thrusts and body rolls ... and if this all looks familiar, it's 'cause it is.

Jerry gave a shirtless lap dance at a similar event in Tahoe back in 2016 ... and shook it skin-on-skin with a thong'd out model at another similar party in 2015.

So, if you're counting at home ... that's three Super Bowl rings for Rice -- and now three topless performances (that we know of).

Jerry Rice 'I'm The F*cking Best Football Player Of All Time'

7/13/2018 7:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ever wonder who Jerry Rice thinks is the greatest football player that ever lived?

"I'm the f*cking best football player of all time!" the ex-49ers receiver says. 

Well, there you have it.

The San Francisco legend was out in Lake Tahoe on Thursday night for the annual American Century Championship golf tournament ... when an onstage convo with Charles Barkley turned into a scene straight out of a WWE ring.

In a video captured by NBC Sports Bay Area  ... Jerry listed off all his accolades to Chuck (they're pretty good) ... and explained to him rather emphatically he's the GOAT.

Then, he dropped the mic ... stormed off the stage to "All I Do Is Win" -- and then the crowd broke out in a "Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!" chant.

If it seems excessive ... it probably was -- but, when you have nearly 7,000 more receiving yards than anybody who's ever lived -- we'll allow it.

Reuben Foster Suspended For Weapons & Weed ... Apologizes for 'My Mistakes'

7/3/2018 12:27 PM PDT
Breaking News

49ers star Reuben Foster was just hit with a 2-game suspension for his 2018 arrests involving guns and weed -- and issued a statement apologizing for his "mistakes."

Foster recently pled no contest to misdemeanor possession of an assault weapon stemming from a February domestic violence arrest.

The domestic violence case went to court -- but the charges were ultimately dismissed when the alleged victim changed her story and claimed she made the whole thing up.

Foster was also arrested back in January for marijuana possession in Alabama.

Tuesday, the NFL punished the linebacker for the guns and weed -- but NOT for anything connected to domestic violence.

He'll miss the first 2 games of the NFL season without pay.

Foster issued a statement, saying he's "sorry that my mistakes have hurt my team."

"I have a responsibility to the 49ers, our fans and our community, and I am committed to learning from this situation and making better choices in the future."

"The support I have received over the last five months has been humbling, and I do not take it for granted.”

Shocking statement from Terrell Owens ... who says he has officially TURNED DOWN his invitation to attend his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. 

Owens says he will NOT go to Canton, Ohio for the ceremony in August -- instead, he will "celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere."

T.O. did not explain the reason behind his decision -- he did, however, praise the NFL and the H.O.F.

"While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton."

"I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction."

"I would also like to thank the San Francisco 49ers, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys, the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals for the time I was granted with each organization. I am thankful for the relationships forged and the lessons learned while part of each team."

"I wish to congratulate all past, current and future inductees. It is quite an honor to be part of such elite company. This honor is something that I will cherish forever."
