Ex-NBA Star Larry Johnson

26 Million Reasons He Needs to PAY ME

... Says Baby Mama

28 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0505_larry_johnson_gettyFormer NBA star Larry Johnson isn't broke at all, and actually stashed $26 million in a private account years ago ... according to one of his FOUR baby mamas. 

TMZ Sports broke the story... Johnson filed for bankruptcy in March. According to court docs, some of the debt is owed to his myriad maternal units.

Now, Laura Tate -- one of those mothers -- has filed docs saying Johnson has only been paying her $1,000 per month for child support ... when he's supposed to be forking over $11k. She also says he set up a trust in 2006, and filled it with the $26 mil.

Tate wants the judge to liquidate LJ's assets so she can collect $870k. She's also got beef because she says some of the other baby mamas are getting more than her.

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

Former NFL wide receiver Titus Young is getting one year of probation for each person he attacked during a 2 month rampage at a mental health facility.

Young was sentenced Tuesday in L.A. for 5 batteries he committed last year at Augustus Hawkins Mental Health Facility. We broke the story ... Young attacked his attorney, along with four other patients. 

In addition to the 5 years of probation ... Titus must remain at a mental health facility -- not Augustus Hawkins -- for the next year. He was given credit for 99 days served.

As we previously reported, doctors believe football hits caused some of Young's mental issues. He's been getting treatment in the same San Diego facility where he will serve his 1 year sentence.

The plaintiffs are suing Pacquiao, Bob Arum, Top Rank Boxing and others for consumer fraud -- and they're demanding at least $5 MILLION in damages. 

Prez Obama

6-Pack Smuggling

In the Oval Office ... Still!

5/5/2015 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When President Barack Obama leaves the White House, he's taking something with him -- his six-pack(ish) abs ... according to his trainer who says El Jefe is still a workout freak.

Our photog in D.C. spotted Cornell McClellan, a member of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition -- and, more importantly, the man who keeps B.O. and the whole First Family in shape.

McClellan said it's not as tough as you'd think to bark out commands to the leader of the free world -- since, as he puts it ... Obama is "raging against death." Kinda strange for a guy who's only 53, but whatever.

As for the six-pack starter kit the Prez had right before winning office? It seemed to be fading in 2012, but McClellan explains why Obama's no lame duck in the gym.

Chris Brown

Bball Battery Case Closed

... Just Like That

EXCLUSIVE

0505-chris-brown-tmz-01In the blink of an eye, Chris Brown is no longer wanted for battery.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the guy who accused Brown of punching him early Monday morning during a basketball game in Vegas called the cops on Tuesday and told them he wanted to drop the case. He did not explain why. 

At that point it was a no-brainer ... cops closed the case. 

Brown just settled a lawsuit over a previous fight during a pickup basketball game at an L.A. gym.

5/5/2015 11:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carmelo Anthony's wife La La just totally one-upped the basketball star's promise of a Knicks championship ... by promising the whole world a look at two even more coveted trophies ... her boobs.

La La sat down for an interview with "The Breakfast Club" where she talked about a milestone in her exploding acting career -- an upcoming episode of the Starz show "Power" where she has her first sex scene.

That's when Charlamagne Tha God jumped in ... asking La La if the love scene would feature any 'freeing of the nipple' on her part ... to which she very gleefully answered, "Yes."

FYI -- She says it happens in episode four, which is set to air on June 27th ... so, you're welcome pervs.

Floyd Mayweather

Baby Mama Sues for $20 Mil

... He's a Despicable Liar

EXCLUSIVE

0505-floyd-josie-tmz-instagram-02

Floyd Mayweather could lose tens of millions of dollars from his big payday if his baby mama gets her way ... because she's just filed a lawsuit claiming he ruined her with lies to save his own ass.

Josie Harris, who has 3 kids with Floyd, claims he lied through his teeth in an interview with Katie Couric just 2 weeks before the big fight ... when he claimed Josie was in a drug-fueled rage and he had to "restrain" her during their infamous 2010 domestic violence incident.

Point of fact ... Floyd was convicted of domestic violence and spent two months in jail.

Josie recounts her terror in the lawsuit, explaining how she and Floyd had broken up ... but he flew into a jealous rage that night, broke into her home and viciously attacked her while she was sleeping on her couch ... and her kids saw part of the beating.

Harris says she is now labeled a drug addict thanks to Mayweather's lies -- and was embarrassed and humiliated on a global scale.  

Her lawyer, Dan Friedlander, writes in the lawsuit -- Floyd's lies to Couric "were knowingly fabricated in order to hype Mayweather's upcoming fight with Pacquiao, to avoid bad press by deflecting responsibility for beating the mother of his children."

Harris wants in excess of $20 million.

Don't Quit On the Knicks

Gonna Be 'Way Better' Next Year

5/5/2015 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Knicks will NOT SUCK next year ... well, at least they won't be as terrible ... so says Carmelo Anthony's wife. 

We spoke with La La Anthony on the way out of FOX Studios in NYC Monday -- who told us Melo is still "100% dedicated to the team" ... and predicted a serious turnaround when they get back on the court. 

Of course, it's hard to get any worse ... the Knicks finished the season this year with the 2nd worst record in the NBA -- only winning 17 games. 

As for who La La wants the Knicks to select in the draft -- "I'll take anybody at this point."

True. 

Jamie Foxx

Admits Nat'l Anthem 'Was a Little Off'

5/5/2015 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Jamie Foxx says his blackness compelled him to do a big over-the top-rendition of the national anthem at the Mayweather fight ... and says technical problems are the only thing to blame for the sharp criticism. 

Foxx just appeared on "Ellen" -- and explained that his ear pieces failed while he was in the ring ... causing him to be out of sync with the orchestra that was playing beside him. 

Despite the mishap, Foxx says his performance "killed" in the arena (in a good way) ... a statement that seems to be refuted by video of Jake Gyllenhaal ... who couldn't have looked less impressed. 

Still, good to have confidence ... 

Dean Cain

Adrian Peterson Learned His Lesson

... Bring Him to Dallas!

5/5/2015 7:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Adrian Peterson has been in NFL exile long enough ... and should come back to the league with the Dallas Cowboys ... so says Dean Cain

Cain -- who's tight with Dallas head coach Jason Garrett -- says it would be "game over" if the Cowboys were able to sign the running back in his first year back since the child abuse situation. 

But Dean says he also knows Adrian ... and firmly believes the guy has "learned his lesson" after he was convicted of beating his 4-year-old son with a switch in 2014.  

Of course, for all of this to happen, the Vikings would have to put AP on the trading block ... something the team has vowed not to do. 

Derek Jeter & Dwyane Wade

Tuxedo Battle

0505_met_gala_athletes_launchTraditional ... or edgy? 

Safe ... or risky? 

White shirt, black tie ... or crazy red stripe and a white tie?!

That was the fashion dichotomy between Derek Jeter and Dwyane Wade in NYC Monday night ... with one star pushing the envelope and the other one ... well, not. 

Question is ... who looked better?

BTW -- same situation with Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham ... with the QB going the Jeter route ... and OB rockin' a crushed velvet purple jacket! 

Prince would be proud.
