Manny Pacquiao and his fight promoters have been hit with a class action lawsuit by people who claim he screwed fans, Pay-per-view buyers and gamblers out of serious money by not disclosing his shoulder injury before the Mayweather fight. 

TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit filed in federal court in Nevada ... in which Stephane Vanel and Kami Rahbaran are suing on behalf of a class that feel cheated. 

In the suit,  Vanel and Rahbaran claim they are fighting "on behalf of all persons who purchased tickets; purchased the pay-per-view event; or who wagered money on the event."

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.

Travis Barker has decided to enter the UFC ... sorta ... 'cause he's dating the league's most famous ring girl, Arianny Celeste

Sources close to the couple tell us ... the two have been dating for several months. We're told they met at one of Travis' concerts and the sparks flew from there.  

Ever since, we're told they've been "inseparable" ... and Travis is telling friends he thinks she could be "the one." 

In fact, Travis recently introduced Arianny to his kids -- which is a pretty HUGE step.

Mazel!

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

5/5/2015 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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

... At Met Gala

5/5/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Ciara isn’t gonna let the fact her boyfriend Russell Wilson is an NFL star, who is also extremely religious ... stop her from giving out smoking hot lap dances to strangers.

But let's be real -- this kinda talent should MUST be shared! It's only fair. Sorry, Russ.tmz-on-tv-3

Steph Curry

Buy Your Dad An MVP Dinner

... Says NBA Commish

5/5/2015 6:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Before his teammates, before his coach, there's ONE MAN Steph Curry should take to a celebratory dinner to thank for winning the NBA MVP ... his famous father ... so says NBA Commish Adam Silver

Silver was out in Washington D.C. yesterday, hours after the league announced Curry had won the award -- and explained why when it comes to "thank you" dinners ... it should always be family first.

Plus, Steph's father is ex-NBA star Dell Curry -- who Silver says is part of "NBA royalty" -- and credits him for helping Steph develop into a superstar. 

The good news for Curry ... with the massive contract he'll eventually sign, he can afford to buy EVERYONE food. 

Congrats. 

La'el Collins

I've Got a Solid Alibi

... In Double Murder

5/5/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-lael-collins-getty-01

Ex-LSU football star La'el Collins has told police he has an airtight alibi in the murder of the pregnant woman suspected of carrying his child ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sources close to the investigation tell us ... Collins -- who was a projected 1st round NFL draft pick before the double murder -- spoke with investigators and said he has witnesses and phone records that prove he was nowhere close to Brittney Mills on the night she was gunned down.  

Mills was shot to death around 10:30 PM on April 24th at her apartment in Baton Rouge. 

But Collins told investigators he was an hour away in New Orleans at the time of the shooting -- as part of an overnight trip with friends and family to watch the New Orleans Pelicans take on the Golden State Warriors on Saturday April 25th. 

We're told Collins also claims he has texts and emails proving the group had planned the trip several days before the killing ... and he believes GPS records on his cell phone will back up his story. 

For the record, Collins has NOT been named a suspect in the murder of Brittney and her unborn son. 

Our sources say La'el told cops he hadn't spoken with Brittney for several months -- when she first suggested that he could be the father of her child. 

So far, no arrests have been made.
