JaVale McGee's Mother Rips Shaq You Cyberbullied My Son!

Breaking News

0227-javalle-mcgee-shaq-tmz-01JaVale McGee's mother is FURIOUS at Shaquille O'Neal -- calling for "Inside the NBA" to fire Shaq for blasting her son on TV and social media.

It's the latest in a bitter feud between Shaq and McGee -- a feud that started years ago when Shaq started mocking the Golden State Warriors player in his Shaqtin' a Fool segment on "Inside the NBA."

Now, with tensions at an all-time high after Shaq WENT IN on McGee again last week -- on TV and on social media -- JaVale's mother (an ex-WNBA star herself) says O'Neal crossed the line.

"He cyberbullied my son,” Pamela McGee told The Undefeated ... "Totally inappropriate. Shaquille needs to lose his job or be suspended. The NBA needs to make a stand.”

For his part, Shaq says HIS mother is also getting involved -- and told him to cut the crap as well.

"I have orders from the top to leave it alone,” O’Neal said ... "My mama."

Shaq says his mother told him, "Stop this silliness. Leave him alone" ... so he listened.

"That’s the end of the beef. You won’t be hearing about it from my side anymore. Mama has spoken.”

The 'Cash Me Ousside' girl ain't done picking fights yet -- only now, she's got her pals in on the action ... outside of a bar. 

Danielle Bregoli was in downtown Lake Worth, FL Saturday night, where she and 2 of her girlfriends -- who also look like teens -- helped start a massive brawl at a nearby bar.

Eyewitnesses tell us Danielle and her crew were just passing by, when customers outside on the patio started taunting them with Danielle's catchphrase ... you know the one.

We're told Danielle and co. played along at first, shouting it back and teasing fans with the prospect of pics/selfies for $10 a pop -- that is, until Danielle started getting pissed by the constant shouting on the other end ... causing 1 of her friends to attack a lady.

A crowd started chasing the 3 girls down the street, but not before another random fight broke out between other bar goers right on the spot.

We're told Danielle and her friends were long gone by the time cops showed up. She was not arrested.

McGee's been a target of Shaq's 'Shaqtin' A Fool' segment on "Inside The NBA" for years, and apparently had enough when the broadcast devoted a whole segment to his on court screw-ups Thursday night.

JaVale took to Twitter and blasted O'Neal, asking Shaq to kindly get his umm, peanut emojis out of his mouth ... you get the meaning, right?

Shaq wasted no time firing back ... leveling a direct physical threat at the Warriors big man that had ZERO of O'Neal's trademark levity.

We got the "This is Us" star in NYC Wednesday and he confessed ... he cried when he watched this week's episode in which his brother's biological father dies.

'This Is Us' Star I'm Dead, But Don't Write Me Off!

EXCLUSIVE

The "This Is Us" episode that pissed off so many fans is not necessarily the end for the guy who played -- or plays -- Randall's biological dad, William.

Ron Cephas Jones gave us his take on why fans got so emotional about Tuesday night's episode, where ... SPOILER ALERT ... William dies. Viewers have said it was just too gut-wrenching, even though it was telegraphed for weeks that Ron's terminally ill character was nearing the end.

But check out why Ron's not that depressed about William's passing. The way he sees it, there's nothing fatal about death on the hit show.

Darius McCrary Accused of Abusing Baby, Attacking Wife

2/22/2017 1:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222-tammy-brawner-darius-mccrary-tmz-02"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary is terrorizing his wife and infant -- allegedly holding the little girl over boiling water once ... this according to the wife who just got a restraining order against him.

Tammy Brawner says McCrary went nuts on Feb. 10 ... hurling picture frames and other objects around the house, and hitting her in the head with his forearm. She says the objects he threw came dangerously close to their 16-month-old daughter, Zoey.

Where Zoey's concerned ... Tammy says McCrary has abused her on several instances, including one particularly horrifying time when he held the baby over a boiling pot of water and said he wished he never had her. In docs obtained by TMZ, she also accuses him of frequent spankings and strapping down Zoey's arms during meals.

Tammy, a former Harlem Globetrotter, says the actor regularly drinks, does drugs and comes home wasted and violent.

A judge has ordered Darius to move out of their home, and he must stay 100 yards away from Tammy and Zoey. He's also barred from visitation until after a court hearing next month. Tammy says she plans to file for divorce.

McCrary's rep hasn't gotten back to us yet.

EXCLUSIVE

If we told you Kevin Durant got straight balled up by "Chappelle's Show" star Donnell Rawlings there's no way you'd believe us right? We didn't think so ...

Turns out it TOTALLY happened ... and Donnell not only told the tale to TMZ Sports when we got him out at the Hollywood Improv Tuesday night -- he also provided VIDEO EVIDENCE!

It went down at a charity game in DC a few years back when Rawlings stole the ball from KD, then pushed the rock hard up the court to drain a smooth three.

Almost as dope as the moment itself? Donnell says he ran into Durant during All-Star Weekend in New Orleans and brought it up to him, and KD totally remembered.

Check it out below ... sorry we ever doubted you, Donnell.

Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.
