Ludacris

I've Seen Mayweather Train

... Manny Ain't Got A Shot

3/27/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ludacris says Manny Pacquiao has ZERO chance of beating Floyd Mayweather in their mega fight ... 'cause he's seen Mayweather train -- and Money is just too focused to lose.

Luda sat down for an interview with "The Breakfast Club" when DJ Envy asked the 'Furious 7' star his opinion on who'll have their arms raised when the final bell rings on May 2nd.

That's when Luda dropped some inside knowledge sure to make the whole Philippines nervous ... saying he dropped by Mayweather's training camp in Vegas recently and saw a whole different Floyd.

"I've never in my life seen him this focused and training this hard."

Luda, who actually worked out with Floyd and his uncle Roger preparing for a role a couple of years ago, added that the whole Money Team is going extra hard for this one: 

"If he usually runs 5 or 6 miles a day, he's running 8 or 9 miles a day. He knows everything is on the line."

Good luck Manny.

Jake Gyllenhaal is a beast. 

The actor got insanely ripped for his role in the upcoming "Southpaw" flick ... a movie about a boxer who loses everything and has to fight to get his life back. 

The movie looks super emotional ... and 50 Cent has a role in it ... but the headline here is that Gyllenhaal looks like a real-life fighter in the new trailer.

He Told Me He Didn't Kill Odin Lloyd

breaking news

Aaron Hernandez's fiancee just told the court that she asked the ex-Patriots star point blank if he murdered Odin Lloyd -- and he denied the whole thing. 

Shayanna Jenkins took the stand in Aaron's murder case moments ago and was asked if she ever discussed Lloyd's death with him.

Jenkins explained she asked Aaron about it when he first arrived home from the police station -- saying, "I asked him if he did it and he said 'No.' That was the extent of our conversation."

According to reports, Jenkins turned to Hernandez and mouthed the words "I love you" to Aaron as she walked out of the courtroom.

U.S. Soccer Is 'Pretty Good'

... Maybe I'll Play Here!

EXCLUSIVE

Major props for USA soccer from one of the greatest players alive -- with Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero telling TMZ Sports the Americans are getting "pretty good" ... and he might just play here. 

FYI -- ADP is a futbol god who led Italy to a World Cup victory back in 2006 ... and is widely considered one of the best players of his generation. 

Last night, the 40-year-old (who still plays professionally btw) was out at Madeo ... where he was swarmed by a gaggle of hot chicks (one of whom is his wife Sonia). 

The guy couldn't have been cooler ... talking about  everything from World Cup swag to the infamous headbutt from France's Zinedine Zidane  in the '06 World Cup championship. 

But c'mon ... Team USA props from an European megastar? Way better than what Zlatan Ibrahimovic had to say about us over the summer.

Justin Bieber

Walking Out w/ Mayweather??

HELL YEAH!!

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather will have 145 pounds of dynamite by his side when he walks to the ring to fight Manny Pacquiao ... because Justin Bieber says he'll DEFINITELY be in Money's entourage. 

Bieber has accompanied Floyd to the ring before -- they've been close friends for years -- but due to the magnitude and importance of this fight, people were wondering if Floyd would go at it alone this time. 

But when we got Bieber leaving Bar 20 in West Hollywood last night (he's 21 now!) ... JB told us you can count on him escorting Mayweather to his corner on May 2nd. 

Michael Sam

Gay NFL Players Came Out to Me

... Some Are Very Famous

breaking news

0327_michael_sam_tmzMichael Sam says there are "a lot" of gay players in the NFL -- including "some famous people" ... but Sam says he is sworn to secrecy and will not reveal their identities. 

Sam spoke with the media in Dallas on Thursday and said, "I am not the only gay person in the NFL. I'm just saying there is a lot of us."

Sam says multiple players have reached out to him and "had the courage to tell me that they were also gay, but they do not have the same courage as I do to come out before I even played a down in the NFL."

"The players who have reached out to me and told me about their sexual orientation, it just means a lot. But I will never say anything about who they are, what teams they're [on]. I'm just saying there's some famous people, and I'm not the only one."

He also expanded on why he came out at the time he did -- before the 2014 Draft -- saying, "Was it a risky move? Yes. But at that moment, the reason why I came out is I thought it wasn't going to be a big deal. Maybe I was naive. Maybe I thought it was 2014, and people will understand that there's gay NFL players."

"There's gay athletes everywhere. But I was clearly wrong. It was a huge deal."

'Basketball Wives' Star Sundy Carter

I Want Draya Michele Prosecuted

An Eye for an Eye, Baby!

3/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sundy Carter Draya Michele Assault "Basketball Wives: LA" star Sundy Carter has filed a police report claiming co-stars Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo violently assaulted her and caused permanent eye damage, but she may have royally screwed up the case.

It happened during a Season 3 episode back in July 2013. Draya allegedly started the fight by calling Sundy "ratchet." Sundy claims Draya punched her and Malaysia hit her in the eye socket.

So here's the problem. Sundy filed the police report Wednesday night -- nearly 2 years after the incident, and the statute of limitations is 1 year.

Sundy says she only found out 6 months ago she has permanent eye damage. She says her vision is blurred, not getting any better, and she now has to wear glasses. And speaking of glasses ... her excuse won't hold water in court.

But there's a ray of hope. Sundy can still file a civil lawsuit against the girls because the statute of limitations is 2 years.

We'd love to livestream that trial. 

You can hear Sundy tell her side on "Icons with Ken Collis," April 1st.

NBA's Larry Johnson

1st Baby Mama Stands Down

He Doesn't Owe Me Squat

0325-larry-johnson-getty-01

Larry Johnson's first baby mama is coming to the ex-NBA star's defense -- telling TMZ Sports he's NOT a deadbeat dad ... claiming he doesn't owe her a dime.

We broke the story ... Johnson -- who made more than $80 million in his NBA career -- filed for bankruptcy and in official docs he listed 4 of his baby mamas as creditors, stemming from back child support payments. 

But Dronda Gillam -- who has a 22-year-old son with L.J. -- says there must've been a mistake ... because she NEVER went after Larry for child support ... ever. 

"We have a great relationship. I've never had a problem with him over money," Gillam says. 

"He’s always been supportive. We never had anything set up through the court system because we didn't need that."

She adds, "He's a really great guy. He just fell on tough times."

We reached out to Johnson and his people for comment -- so far, no word back.

Shaq

I'm a Virtual Casino Mogul

Who Wants to Play ShaqJack?!

3/26/2015 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's video of Shaquille O'Neal in a skin-tight bodysuit ... dancing, golfing and goofing around ... all for a new casino-themed video game ... complete with a beat-box session. 

The Big Fella did the whole motion capture thing so programmers could accurately recreate every single curve of Shaq's 7-foot frame for his two new app games ... SHAQJack and Caddy Shaq

We're told ShaqJack is a twist on traditional blackjack ... with some basketball flavor along the way. 

And CaddyShaq is a slot machine style game ... where the bonus features include golf challenges with O'Neal. 

But even if you're not into the whole cyber casino thing check out the video anyway ... ever seen a freakishly large man break dance in a leotard?

A bunch of former NFL stars -- a lot of 'em from Da U -- got together for their weekly bowling night on Wednesday ... but this week had a hip hop twist. Benzino from "Love And Hip Hop Atlanta" hosted, and rapper N.O.R.E. threw 10 frames too. 

Phillip BuchanonDavid Clowney and Larry Johnson also got lanes at Strike 10 Bowling -- and we know what you're asking. Who wins when world class athletes go pin-for-pin against each other?

We're told Clowney and McGahee did the most damage, for what it's worth.

Congrats ... although we're sure they don't hand out rings for that.
