12/9/2015 2:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather is ANGRY that Chrissy Teigen would dare insult his decision to get a pet tiger -- and now he's lashing out at the supermodel over it. 

After Mayweather revealed his new pet -- Teigen went to Twitter and wrote, "I'm okay with people having pet tigers because it increases their chances of being eaten by a tiger."

Well, Floyd no likey -- 'cause he just appeared on and fired off some not-so-subtle insults right back at her. 

"John Legend's wife said something? I've never had anything negative to say about John Legend. I really don't even know what his wife does."


And then the worst insult a supermodel can get -- "I never seen John Legend's wife in my life. And if I did I probably just don't remember it."

Ouch again. 

For the record, Mayweather promises he'll be responsible with his new pets -- "I'm not getting a tiger to let my tiger run around the city and bite people. We're trying to help save tigers."

Saint West Twitter War Rapper Loses to Kimye's Kid

12/9/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Saint West, the rapper, lost his Twitter handle the day after Saint West, the baby, was introduced to the world -- but Kanye West and Kim Kardashian aren't behind the power move ... we're told.

When Kim announced her baby’s name, Twitter users flocked to @SaintWest and were surprised to see a Canadian rapper owned the page ... for a few more hours, anyway.

Sources tell TMZ ... Twitter told the rapper via email his handle would be modified to @SaintWest___ -- not because Kim demanded it, but because his last tweet was in 2011! 

Twitter policy states you must tweet at least once every 6 months to be considered active. We're told the sudden flood of interest in the name is how Twitter realized the rapping Saint West was asleep at the tweetin' wheel.  

His old handle was snatched up quickly -- but NOT by the Kardashians, we're told. The new mystery owner's not dumb though ... he/she quickly followed Kim's account.

We smell a business transaction coming as soon as Saint can work a smartphone.

1113-pauley-perrette-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar8:15 AM PT -- Police arrested the suspect ... a 45-year-old man named David Merck, and booked him for felony battery. ET got Pauley's sketch of Merck, and a photo one of her friends later took of him.

She could have a future in forensic art. 

1113-subasset-pauley-etupdate_grey_gray_barPauley Perrette, who plays scientist Abby Sciuto on "NCIS," says a "psychotic homeless man" punched her in the face Thursday night and vowed he would kill her.

It's a bizarre story. Perrette says she told the guy, who called himself William, that he had a "beautiful name" but he just unloaded and punched her again.

She says, "I went into shock ... collapsed on the sidewalk." She says cops came, she drew a "police sketch" of the guy, who was "headed towards Hollywood Blvd with murder in his eyes." Perrette says cops arrested him.

Now it gets really weird. Perrette tweeted, "I am shaken and traumatized. My house, my beloved Hollywood. My beloved homeless people that I spend my  life protecting ... My life changed tonight."

She ends by writing, "We need to not walk alone. I need to heal. I almost died tonight."

1105_CAL_TWITTER-PAGETalk about revisionist history ... the Cal Golden Bears posted a little #TBT Thursday -- reminiscing about the time Marshawn Lynch led Cal over Oregon in overtime back in 2005. 

Problem is ... it didn't really happen that way. 

Fact is ... #23 Cal LOST to #15 Oregon 27-20 thanks to a 4-yard TD pass from Brady Leaf in OT. 

Lynch had 2 touchdowns of his own that game ... but definitely no game winning heroics. 

Cal has since deleted the tweet ... but the Internet never forgets.
