NBA's DeJuan Blair Cited for Battery On Woman ... At Vegas Club

7/25/2016 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-dejuan-blair-tmz-sportsNBA player DeJuan Blair -- who played for the Washington Wizards last season -- was cited for misdemeanor battery against a woman at a Vegas club this weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Las Vegas Metro PD has confirmed ... officers were called to Drai's nightclub at The Cromwell around 1 AM Sunday morning to respond to a report of a man who allegedly got physical with a woman.

The alleged victim told police ... she was arguing with Blair over the line into the club when he picked her up and tossed her off to the side. The woman was pissed and retaliated by striking him back -- before calling for help.  

Sources tell us ... when cops arrived they checked security video and decided there was enough evidence to issue a citation to Blair for misdemeanor battery. He was NOT arrested. 

However, cops tell TMZ Sports Blair was also issued a "trespassing warning" from the property and told to leave immediately.  

People close to Blair tell TMZ Sports he's adamant he did not throw the woman -- as one source put it, "He simply moved her out of the way when he was trying to get by her. Nothing more."

As for the woman, we're told she refused medical treatment -- but she's still pissed and is considering a lawsuit against the NBA player.  

NFL's Chris Clemons Denied KO'ing Woman ... In Bizarre Cop Cam Video

7/22/2016 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained body cam footage from the cop who spoke with Arizona Cardinals safety Chris Clemons after he allegedly knocked out a woman in Scottsdale back in May ... and it's weird. 

Backstory ... Clemons is accused of punching a woman in the face around 2 AM on May 8th -- knocking her out cold during a parking lot altercation near a Scottsdale nightclub. 

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, cops combed the area searching for a suspect that was described by witnesses as a pro football player named Chris. 

When the cop makes contact with Clemons, he doesn't realize he's speaking with the guy he's looking for -- and a bizarre interaction takes place. 

Clemons, visibly nervous and apparently intoxicated (according to cops), drops his $10,000 gold grillz ... and asks the cop if he can search under an SUV to find them. 

Once he collects the teeth, he begins to deny that he struck anyone that night ... and references a woman who was knocked out earlier in the night after she had keyed a BMW nearby. 

The cop lets Chris go ... since he didn't realize who he was. Once the cops figured it out, they tried to find him again, but couldn't locate Clemons.

According to the police report, witnesses say ... the fight centered around the fact that Chris has some sort of relationship with a woman in Florida ... but was out that night with another woman. 

The alleged victim is friends with the Florida woman and called Chris out. The alleged victim got into an altercation with Chris' new female companion ... and during the incident, Chris allegedly punched the victim in the face. 

The cops have kicked the case over to city prosecutors and recommended Clemons be charged with assault and disorderly conduct. 

So far, prosecutors have not made an official decision. Clemons has not been arrested.

EXCLUSIVE

0720-dani-mathers-tom-mesereau-instagram-tmzDani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who took a picture of a naked woman in an L.A. gym -- has hired no less than the famous lawyer who got Michael Jackson acquitted ... and she has reason for worry.

We've learned Mathers hired Tom Mesereau, who not only got MJ off ... he won a murder acquittal for Robert Blake.

TMZ broke the story, the LAPD launched a criminal investigation after the gym where the photo was taken filed a police report. Mathers not only snapped the pic in the locker area, she shamed the woman by writing a snarky caption and posting it on social media.

Our LAPD sources say they are on the hunt for the victim and are working closely with LA Fitness execs, combing over surveillance video and checking member swipes during the time in question to ID the victim. And, we're told, they're close.

Our sources say the LAPD would like to present a criminal case to the L.A. City Attorney but need the cooperation of the victim.

Mathers has been banned from the health club, and good luck finding another one.

EXCLUSIVE

0720-jeremy-piven-tmz-01Jeremy Piven opened his car door Tuesday -- no big deal. Problem was ... he didn't look first and a bicyclist slammed into the door, cutting his chest open. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jeremy was near The Grove when he parked his car next to the curb and flung open the door of his 2015 CTS Cadillac. The 44-year-old man who was peddling along was badly hurt and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Our cop sources say they believe Jeremy was at fault but he didn't get a ticket because cops didn't see it happen. We're told Jeremy was cooperative.

The victim received stitches on his chest. Too early to know about a civil suit, but you can bet on it.

We reached out to Piven ... so far no word back.

0715_dani-mathers_facebookDani Mathers is in full-on damage control mode ... firing off an apology to her fellow Playboy Playmates.

The 2015 Playmate of the Year sent the bunnies an apology for her "thoughtless and mean-spirited" Snapchat post that cost her a radio gig and her LA Fitness gym membership. 

In the email, obtained by TMZ, Dani calls posting a photo of an unwitting woman in a gym sauna a mistake ... apologizing for "the negativity and hate that this has brought forward." She also says there's no excuse for her behavior and she's laying low.

She never explains WHY she's doing a mea culpa to the Playmates, but it's a good bet she's afraid Playboy might yank her title ... so she's throwing herself on the sword.

Playmate Dani Mathers Body Shames Naked Woman ... Gets Blasted by Internet

7/14/2016 7:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0714-dani-mathers-snapchat-01Former Playmate of the Year Dani Mathers did a despicable thing -- posting a pic of a naked woman in the gym shower without her permission, and then got shamed herself ... into making a totally empty apology.

Mathers thought it'd be funny to mock the unwitting woman's body -- she captioned the pic, "If I can't unsee this then you can't either."

She got the appropriate backlash as the Internet immediately ripped the 33-23-31 sized model for ... 1. exposing the woman's privacy -- and 2. having the balls to criticize the woman's body.

Playboy's 2015 PMOY then made a video mea culpa, claiming it was an "accident" -- which makes next to no sense.

Isaiah Crowell Cop Org Accepts 2nd Apology 'It Was Sincere This Time'

Exclusive Details

0713-isaiah-crowell-getty-01A prominent Cleveland police organization says it has ACCEPTED Isaiah Crowell's 2nd apology over an anti-police Instagram post ... claiming they believe apology #2 was actually sincere. 

The Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association had initially told Crowell to "kiss my ass" after the Browns running back issued a written statement apologizing for the post. 

Crowell responded by making an apology video -- in which he admitted he was part of the problem, vowed to be a part of the solution ... and said he would be donating his 1st game check of the 2016 season to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation. 

Now, CPPA President Stephen Loomis says ... apology accepted. 

"I appreciate the apology and we accept it. People are allowed to make mistakes in life. Our problem was that first apology. It wasn’t sincere. But Isaiah stepped up to the plate to make a personal apology, and we definitely appreciate his donation to the Fallen Officers Foundation."

Loomis continued ... "I'd love to work with Isaiah in the future. How cool would it be if Isaiah and I attended community events together to really make a difference in the city? We are missing opportunities that we should be seizing as law enforcement and athletes in the city."

"I’m glad we didn’t have to go the route of boycotting Browns games. We would not have enjoyed that. We wanted to give Isaiah the opportunity to make things right, and he did."

Ariel Winter At War With Body Shop Over Benz

Exclusive Details

0712-ariel-winter-tmz-01Ariel Winter blasted an L.A. body shop for taking months to repair her wrecked G-Wagon, but the shop's claiming she's just being a snotty celeb.

Ariel posted a scathing review of Paulee's Body Shop on her Instagram Monday ... warning her 2 million followers never to do business with them because the service is "incredibly rude [and] slow" and says the people are "unprofessional [and] intolerable." She says it took 4 months to fix her car. Ariel says if she could, she would give them a minus 10 rating.

Eric, the manager at Paulee's, begs to differ, telling us the car was only there for 2 months, and it needed $75k in repairs because it's a limited edition Benz and parts were hard to come by.

Eric says he still has the car because Ariel hasn't paid. It looks like he wants more than the $75k ... Eric wants Ariel to take down her rant against the shop.

Chris Brown Call a Vegas Club Racist ... Get Fired

7/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0708_chris_brown_drias_tmzChris Brown played the race card and it cost him his Vegas gig.

The singer was 86'd from his Vegas residency at Drai's Nightclub for refusing to apologize to the club's owner after calling Drai's a racist venue ... according to a letter management fired off to CB's attorney and obtained by TMZ.

Not too long ago ... Chris torched the club on Instagram, and that pissed off Drai's to the point it issued an ultimatum -- apologize or get out. 

But it wasn't just the IG post ... Drai's says Chris' recent behavior has "garnered negative public attention" causing concern among Drai's management.

We're guessing those concerns might have been this, this and this. We reached out to both sides to see if they've mended things, but no word back.

So for now ... deuces!

Rick Ross It Wasn't Weed ... Sometimes a Cigar is Only a Cigar

7/9/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0708_Rick-&-His-Cigar_tmz_wmRick Ross is no dummy ... he's not gonna smoke a blunt in front of cameras while on house arrest -- so his story goes.

TMZ posted video a few days ago of Rick smoking what sure looked like a joint at his July 4th pool party. Since he's out on bail while his kidnapping case is pending, he's not allowed to break any law, and smoking weed is a big no-no in ATL.

Sources close to Rick tell us ... it was a cigar, stupid. They say Rosay had a guy at the ready rolling the stogies, which were Bello brand.

And that's how he rolls.
