Baltimore Ravens Player

WANTED MAN

... Arrest Warrant Issued

1/28/2015 9:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0128-will-hill-ravens-twitterBaltimore Ravens safety Will Hill is wanted by NJ officials -- after allegedly stiffing his baby mama out of more than $16k in child support ... TMZ Sports has learned.  

According to official documents obtained by TMZ Sports, the 24-year-old is on the hook for $16,588.18 in unpaid support to a woman in New Jersey. 

Law enforcement sources tell us an arrest warrant has been issued. There won't be a "fugitive" style manhunt for the guy ... but if a cop pulls him over and runs his info, he'll be arrested on the spot. 

In fact, that's exactly what happened to Hill in December 2013 ... when he was arrested in NJ on a warrant for outstanding child support payments. 

Hill (who was playing for the NY Giants back then) eventually paid up ... and actually played in a game against the Detroit Lions just days later.  

Hill is considered a pretty solid player on the Ravens -- and had a key pick 6 interception against the Saints in week 12. 

We've reached out to Hill for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

012815_gordon_ramsey_launch_v3Gordon Ramsay is JACKED, SON!!! 

The "Hell's Kitchen" chef was out in Malibu on Tuesday ... strollin' around in his workout gear after a triathlon training session -- flexin' a serious pair of guns.  

Turns out, 48-year-old Ramsay is a hardcore athlete ... he's completed 15 marathons, 3 ultra-marathons, 3 half-Ironmans and the actual Ironman in Hawaii. 

FYI -- Ramsay started running marathons in 2001 ...and says his goal is to break the 3:30 mark. 

In fact, Gordon clocked in a time of 3:30:14 back 2004 ... but says he chocked that up to posing for pics for fans and singing autographs.

"Had I not said yes and taken some water and stolen a Jelly Baby, I would have done it in under 3.30," Ramsay told The Telegraph ... "I am going to break 3.30. I won’t stop until I do."

UFC's Nick Diaz

RIPS BILL BELICHICK

'You're Full Of S**t, Bro'

1/28/2015 7:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012815_nick_diaz_launchHe's been called the "King of Trash Talk" ... and now UFC superstar Nick Diaz is spitting his venom right at New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick ... saying the guy is completely "full of s**t."

In a new promo spot for UFC 183, Diaz goes in on Coach B ... mocking his Deflate-Gate news conference ... and claiming that Bill's "been selling bulls**t this whole time."

The 31-year-old ends with this parting shot at the Pats -- "They're selling you all wolf tickets people ... and you're eating 'em right up."

Cameron Diaz & Benji

Kiss Cam Makeout Session ...

At Lakers Game

1/28/2015 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012815_camron_diaz_kiss_cam_launchFinally, a highlight at the Lakers game. 

For some reason, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden decided to hit up Staples Center in L.A. Tuesday night to watch the Kobe-less Lakers go down in flames to the Washington Wizards. 

But during a break in the action, the newlyweds (married just 3 weeks ago) were put on the "Kiss Cam" ... and they came through strong with some PDA as several fans clapped and cheered. 

Might as well ... nothing else to applaud for that night.

Bill Simmons

Hey Shaq & LeBron

Your TV Shows Will Probably Fail

1/28/2015 6:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012815_bill_simmons_launch
Shaquille O'Neal ain't gonna be the next Seinfeld ... and LeBron James is no Alex Trebek ... so says ESPN's Bill Simmons who thinks both NBA stars are likely to crash and burn with their new TV projects. 

As we previously reported, Shaq's got a sitcom in the works based on his real-life business empire ... and LeBron's production company is partnering with NBC to create a new primetime game show. 

But Simmons tells TMZ Sports ... neither venture looks promising -- "I wouldn't invest in either of those."

Simmons on Shaq -- "I don't have a lot of high hopes for that sitcom. I don't see the sitcom thing happening."

Simmons on LeBron -- "I think game shows usually don't work. I probably have more high hopes for the Shaq show."

Everyone's a critic ...

JaMarcus Russell

Poppin Bottles With Rick Ross

1/28/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0127-julia-beverly-jamarcus-russell-instagram-01JaMarcus Russell might've finally given up on his NFL dreams, but his dreams of living like a boss look very alive 'cause TMZ Sports has a pic of the former #1 overall pick hanging with one of the biggest stars in rap ... Rick Ross.

The two hung out on January 16th after Ross performed the same day at the Nightown nightclub in Destin, Florida. We're told Russell -- a HUGE fan -- heard about the show and drove all the way in to chop it up with Rozay. 

Judging from the pic, the two seemed to hit it off -- and had a great time while partying with several bottles of Ross' Luc Belaire Rare Rose.  

Here's the thing ... Russell has struggled with substance abuse in the past (sizzurp) ... and also had a close call with foreclosure -- so it's interesting to see him balling out with booze and a fancy piece of jewelry on his wrist.  

On a more hilarious note -- the reason why Russell is partly cropped out of the picture is because the woman who took the photo is Julia Beverly -- the founder of Ozone Magazine and Pimp C's biographer -- and she didn't know who he was.
 
Oops.

JaVale McGee & D.J. Swearinger

NBA Star and NFL Star Unite

To CRUSH L.A. Strip Club

1/28/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012715_dj_swearinger_launch_v2
What do a 7'0" center for the Denver Nuggets and a 5'10" safety for the Houston Texans have in common?

A love of dat ass ...

Cause JaVale McGee (the center) and D.J. Swearinger (the safety) were both at a L.A. strip club this past Monday CRUSHING it ... showing more than $16K on some of the hard working ladies.

The two stars hit up Ace Of Diamonds in L.A. -- the hottest new shake spot in the city -- and from what we're told the two went BANANAS inside the joint, spending some serious green on the ta-ta talent.

For those keeping count, our booty club sources say JaVale -- who makes about $12 mil-a-year -- dropped around $10K while D.J. -- who "only" banks about $800K a year -- precipitated an impressive $6K.

It ain't trickin' if you got it ...

GoDaddy

Pulls Super Bowl Spot

Over Puppy Cruelty Backlash

1/27/2015 4:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

012715_go_daddy_launchDanica Patrick loses again ... this time, GoDaddy.com is PULLING their Super Bowl ad featuring the NASCAR driver over OUTRAGE from animal lovers. 

The commercial -- called "Lost Dog" -- shows a puppy that falls out of a truck ... and then overcomes all odds to find its way back home.  

Problem is, when the little guy returns home ... he finds out the owner used GoDaddy to set up a website to sell the dog to a new owner.  

Needless to say, people are PISSED -- with some animal rights groups saying the commercial supports puppy mills and other "inhumane breeding" practices. PETA went nuts over it ... saying, "anyone who sells a dog online is a callous jerk."

GoDaddy's CEO Blake Irving got the message loud and clear ... and tweeted, "What should have been a fun and funny ad clearly missed the mark and we will not air it."


GoDaddy says it will still use it's 30 second Super Bowl slot (after all, they paid $4 mil for it) ... though so far, it's unclear what will run in its place.

Josh Gordon

Welcomed Back to Sling Cars

... Again

1/27/2015 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0127-SUB-josh-gordon-car-01
They say when God closes a door, he opens a window -- and for Josh Gordon, that door is being an NFL star receiver ... but the window is selling Fords in Randolph, Ohio.

Gordon is facing a possible one-year suspension for allegedly failing another drug and alcohol test. 

But TMZ Sports has learned he's already got a plan B, if he wants it  -- his old job hawking cars and SUVs for Sarchione Auto Group is once again available. If you remember, Gordon worked there in 2014 during his 10 game suspension ... and Senior Sales Associate Mike Sabatine says the dealership would love to have him back.

Despite Josh's repeated troubles with pot and booze -- Sabatine says he never saw Josh drink or smoke, and says the guy he knew busted his ass on the job "just like the rest of us."

Gordon's suspension is not official yet. He can still appeal, but chances are ... he should start brushing up on Ford's 2015 models.

Marshawn Lynch to Media:

'I'm Here So I Won't Get Fined'

1/27/2015 11:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012715_marshawn_lynch_launch_v2Marshawn Lynch is being hammered with questions at Super Bowl media day. 

His answer to all of them?

"I'm just here so I won't get fined."

Marshawn sat in front of the microphones sporting his sunglasses and a backpack -- and repeated over and over again, "Hey, I'm just here so I don't get fined."

He's said it at least 20 times already. 

As you probably know, the NFL just fined Lynch $20k for grabbing his crotch during a TD celebration in the NFC championship game.

Rob Gronkowski just read a passage from the erotic novel he inspired ... "A Gronking to Remember" ... and it's ... it's so Gronk.

The line -- "In front of the entire country, Gronk’s spike impacts right between my buttcheeks."

Definitely the best thing that happened at Super Bowl media day in Arizona Tuesday. 

Of course, the novel (written by Lacey Noonan) made headlines when it was made available on Amazon.com. 

And if you're still thirsty for more ... here's Gilbert Gottfried sharing a bit more. Enjoy.
