Drake

Suck It Broncos

I Got Into Nightclub and You Didn't

Drake was like Moses last night after the Super Bowl in NYC -- walking into Marquee nightclub like the parting of the Red Sea.

The rapper walked in effortlessly as members of the Seahawks partied inside.  As TMZ Sports reported ... Broncos star Von Miller was not as lucky, being unceremoniously turned away. 

The video of Miller's thwarted entrance is painful to watch ... kind of like the game.

Denver Broncos Superstar

REJECTED From NYC Nightclub

Where Seahawks Partied

EXCLUSIVE
020314_von_miller_launchDenver Broncos superstar Von Miller learned the hard way ... no one wants to party with the losers ... 'cause after the game, he was REJCTED from a nightclub where the Seahawks celebrated their big win ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

It all went down at Marquee in NYC ... where stars like James Carpenter, Sidney Rice and a bunch of other Seattle players were welcomed inside with open arms.

But when Von got to the front door ... suddenly, the bouncer explained the club had reached capacity ... and the Broncos linebacker was turned away.

It was sad ... but hey ... as Kurtis Blow would say ... "these are the breaks."

Warren Sapp

Nightclubbin' After Super Bowl

I Don't Wanna Talk About the Bet!

2/3/2014 5:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
020314_warren_sapp_launchAfter making one of the worst financial decisions of his life -- and losing a $100k bet to Rick Ross -- Warren Sapp mustered up the energy to hit the NYC clubs last night ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Sapp hit up Marquee nightclub in NYC ... where the Seahawks partied after their big Super Bowl win -- and despite losing $100,000, he seemed to be in a pretty good mood.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Sapp made the bet with the rap mogul earlier this weekend ... and the terms of the bet were all captured on video.

No word on how Sapp plans to pay up ... considering he filed for bankruptcy back in 2012, and was in such dire straights, his Nike shoe collection was seized and auctioned off to pay back his creditors.

Warren Sapp

Is Not Happy Right Now

Yeah ... that $100,000 bet was a bad idea. 

Really bad.

We broke the story ... Sapp -- who filed for bankruptcy back in 2012 -- made a $100k Super Bowl bet with rap mogul Rick Ross.  The bet was captured on video ... so it's gonna be hard for Sapp to back out. 

Sapp took the Broncos. Ross took the Seahawks.

Sapp lost.

Warren's gonna have to find a way to come up with $100k, stat ... 'cause Rick doesn't seem like the kinda guy you wanna owe money to.

Just sayin' ...

Michael Irvin

Russell Wilson Could be 'Doug Williams'

... Of Short People

EXCLUSIVE
020214_michael_irvin_launch
Russell Wilson could make HISTORY if he wins the Super Bowl tonight ... not because he'd be the 2nd black QB to do it, but because he'd be the FIRST short QB to do it ... so says Michael Irvin.

The NFL Hall of Famer was out partying in NYC last night when he broke it down ... saying Doug Williams already took care of the color issue -- so Russell needs to stand up for the vertically challenged.

For the record, Wilson's 5'11" ... so he's not exactly tiny -- but he would be the first starting QB under 6-feet in NFL history to win the big game.

And according to Irvin, that's a BIG deal (terrible pun very much intended).

Jay Z and Beyonce

Surprise Pre-Super Bowl Performance

2/2/2014 9:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Beyonce -- last year's Super Bowl performer -- surprised the crowd at Jay Z's concert last night in New York ... when she hit the stage to jam out with her husband on their latest song.

The whole thing went down at DirectTV's "Super Saturday Night" party on the eve of the big game -- and last year's halftime entertainer pulled off the surprise performance without a hitch.

The halftime show this year will be put on by Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Hopefully Flea keeps his word and doesn't drop trou.

Bankrupt Warren Sapp

Makes $100K Super Bowl Bet

... With Rick Ross

2/1/2014 3:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
020114_warren_sapp_launch
Warren Sapp better get on his knees and PRAY for Peyton Manning to have the game of his life, 'cause  the guy who declared BANKRUPTCY in 2012 just made a $100,000 bet with Rick Ross that the Broncos will win the Super Bowl ... and TMZ Sports has the video proof.

It all went down at the Hudson Hotel in NYC ... when the Hall of Famer made the bet with Rick in front of a ton of people.  They also tweeted about the wager, so neither side can try to Aaron Rodgers their way out of this one.

As for the $100k wager -- it's PRETTY DAMN SHOCKING considering Warren has serious financial issues. It was just back in 2012 that he filed for BANKRUPTCY ... and due to his brokeness, Warren's giant collection of Nike shoes were auctioned off in Sept. 2013.

As for Rick, the guy just bought the biggest house in Georgia ... so, we're guessing he can afford it.

Maybe Sapp knows a little something about the game that we don't.

Stay tuned ...

Holly Robinson Peete has no problem with the sniper security team protecting the Super Bowl ... in fact, the ex "Talk" star says it's a NECESSITY because the world ain't a safe place anymore.

Peete was hightailing it out of a pre-Super Bowl party Friday night ... and told our photog just how important she thinks it is to have our best sharpshooters protecting MetLife Stadium.

This year's Super Bowl will reportedly have the biggest police presence ever ... including snipers in helicopters above the stadium.

Justin Bieber

Flips Out

At Maxim Party

EXCLUSIVE
0201-justin-bieber-middle-finger-tmzJustin Bieber put his finger to bad use last night at a Super Bowl party filled with models and other hot chicks.

Bieber slinked in the back door at around 2 AM at the Maxim party in NYC. 

Apparently his 5-hour interrogation by U.S. Customs officials at the airport Friday got him riled, because he had his people shine a bright light at anyone who tried snapping a pic of him inside the party.  And Bieber's bodyguards were pretty successful -- except with the guy who got this photo.

TMZ broke the story ... Bieber was flagged by Customs because of his 2 pending criminal cases ... including one for allegedly assaulting a limo driver.

No models were hurt in this shoot.

We've never seen Kate Upton do a dance we didn't instantly love -- but her attempt to pull off a Super Bowl TD celebration actually sparked a debate.

Love it or hate it ... we all agree it's fun to watch her try it.

Justin Bieber
was flagged by U.S. Customs officials when he landed in New Jersey this afternoon because he has 2 pending criminal cases ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Bieber is still being grilled by Customs people ... after they searched his plane because they allegedly smelled weed.  The search turned up nothing. 

We're told -- as a result of the Patriot Act -- Customs officials have broad power to flag people coming in from another country when they have an active criminal case or a conviction.  Justin currently has an assault case in Canada and a DUI case in Miami Beach.

0131_justin_bieber_article_wm_sub_asset
Sources say Bieber is being "put through the grinder" right now by Customs folks.  As one source said, "Once you're flagged it's a grueling process to get in the country."

It's almost certain Justin will eventually be cleared to leave Teterboro Airport because both alleged offenses are minor.

As we first reported ... Justin flew there for the Super Bowl.
