Golden Tate Jameis Winston Was Misunderstood ... He's No Sexist

2/23/2017 9:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Detroit Lions star Golden Tate is DEFENDING Jameis Winston -- saying he understands the message the QB was trying to send to elementary school kids ... and it was NOT a sexist one.

"I personally understand what he was saying," Tate tells TMZ Sports.

"He's saying, 'Hey men, lead your families. Step up when you see something that's not going right. When you see someone abusing a woman or verbally abusing a woman or something like that, stand up.' That's all he's saying I think. I mean, I get it."

Tate says people should focus on Winston's bigger message -- that all kids can achieve their goals in life if they work hard enough.

"Keep it up, Jameis. Keep balling and keep changing this world. People are always gonna misunderstand you."

Justin Bieber I'm So Pissed!!!

2/23/2017 7:23 AM PST

We know Justin Bieber's pissed at The Weeknd ... but who knew it was literal?

Biebs was cruisin' along Wednesday in WeHo in $400 sweats that will now resell on eBay for either a lot more or a lot less.

His aim on the basketball court clearly doesn't translate.

Harrison Ford Video of Taxiway Landing

2/21/2017 5:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford's taxiway landing last Monday was caught on video, and it promises to be the centerpiece of the FAA investigation.

The video was captured by cameras trained on the runways at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. It shows Ford's approach which came dangerously close to an American Airlines 737, which was on the taxiway when the actor's plane passed overhead.

A man in the terminal who took a picture of the landing told us Ford had misjudged the runway and banked sharply before landing on the taxiway, but  that is not reflected in this video.

Natty Light Sued You Can't Use My Face to Hawk Booze ... Says Beer Swilling Chick

2/22/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-main-kayla-kraft-tmz-facebook-02She doesn't always drink Natty Light, but when she does ... a North Carolina chick doesn't want her face slapped on beer ads, damn it!

Kayla Kraft is suing Anheuser-Busch -- makers of the not-so-primo pilsner -- over a photo she posted of herself sipping on a 12-ouncer. She says the pic began appearing in Natural Light's "Every Natty Has A Story" campaign -- first, on coasters distributed to Carolina bars, and then on posters in bars, restaurants and stores.

Kayla says she put the pic on FB for anyone to see, but never gave consent to become Natty Light's poster child. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she owns the copyright on the pic -- and has even registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Might seem like an odd move for a candid drinking pic, but she's going after the beer giant for a slice of its profits from the campaign.

It's bloody ... and crazy.

Nick Cannon Still Reppin' 'AGT' After Saying 'I Quit'

2/15/2017 4:16 PM PST

0215-agt-promo-nbcNick Cannon's done with "America's Got Talent," but their advertising department did not get the memo.

The 'AGT' Auditions Twitter account just plugged audience tickets for the live auditions -- during which Nick typically mingles with performers -- and the promo still features Cannon with the caption, "Returning for Season 12."

Nick's made it clear he's not coming back because he's pissed at how he's been treated ... so it's probably time to crank out a new image.

Maybe something with Ryan Seacrest instead?

YouTube Star PewDiePie Show Canceled ... After Anti-Semitic Jokes

2/14/2017 7:19 AM PST
Breaking News

0214-pewdiepie-TMZ-01PewDiePie's show on YouTube is no more -- he's been cut loose by the video platform ... hours after Disney pulled the plug over his anti-Semitic "jokes" on his channel. 

YouTube says it canceled the release of a 2nd season for PewDiePie -- real name Felix Kjellberg -- and will not be promoting the rest of his channel as well. 

One of his videos included a banner that read, "Death to all Jews."  

Disney, which owns Maker Studios and helped produce PewDiePie's show, also cut him loose after they realized he had a ton of anti-Semitic gags and Nazi imagery embedded in his vids.

PewDiePie has more than 53 million followers, and is YouTube's most popular channel.

Good riddance.

Mischa Barton Crashes U-Haul into Apartment

2/12/2017 6:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mischa Barton crashed into an apartment building Saturday night ... literally, with the help of a U-Haul.

Mischa moved out of the West Hollywood building in which she had been living ... this after a meltdown caught on video which resulted in her hospitalization late last month.

The 'O.C.' star put all her stuff in the U-Haul and drove to another WeHo building right below the Sunset Strip, but she misjudged the height of the carport and the top of the U-Haul slammed into the overhead support.

She was clearly shaken after the crash, saying everything she owns is inside the vehicle.

It's a little weird ... she moved out of her old apartment Wednesday but it seems she was driving the U-Haul around town for several days before landing at her new digs.

Mischa's old neighbors had complained she was disruptive to the point cops were called every few months.

The NY Knicks say Charles Oakley is LYING THROUGH HIS TEETH -- claiming "dozens" of Knicks staff, security and NYPD cops witnessed his "abusive behavior" before he was kicked out of MSG.

The Knicks just issued a new statement in the wake of Oakley's media blitz in which he denied any and all wrongdoing in the Wednesday night incident. The Knicks are calling BS.

"There are dozens of security staff, employees and NYPD that witnessed Oakley's abusive behavior."

"It started when he entered the building and continued until he was arrested and left the building. Every single statement we have received is consistent in describing his actions."

"Everything [Oakley] said since the incident is pure fiction."

Rick Ross I Puked My Guts Out Drinking With GRONK

2/9/2017 10:47 AM PST

Here's Rick Ross proving that partying with Gronk is almost as dangerous as playing in the NFL ... saying he PUKED HIS GUTS OUT trying to keep up with the Patriots star at a post-Super Bowl turn up.

Ross was on "The Brilliant Idiots" podcast with Charlamagne Tha God & Andrew Schulz when he regurgitated the story of his regurgitation, involving Gronk, a DJ, and too much champagne.

TMZ Sports previously reported The Boss and The Gronk had a MASSIVE turn up at a club in Connecticut Tuesday night ... but we have to admit, we saw no chunks flying from Ross' mouth.

Kudos to not getting any in your beard, bro ...

Texas Lt. Gov. Taps Texas Rangers for Tom Brady Jersey Hunt

2/6/2017 10:55 AM PST
Breaking News

0206-dan-patrick-tom-brady-GETTY-01One of the most powerful men in Texas is calling in the big guns to bring back Tom Brady's allegedly stolen Super Bowl jersey ... with the Lt. Gov. of Texas reaching out to the TEXAS RANGERS! 

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick -- the 2nd highest ranking politician in Texas -- just issued a statement vowing to use every resource he can to recover the jersey.

"In Texas, we place a very high value on hospitality and football. Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectible ever,'" Patrick said.

"It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas. I've called Colonel Steve McCraw to ask that the Texas Rangers work with the Houston Police Department in this case."

He added, "I’m a Texans and Cowboys fan first, but the unquestionable success of the Super Bowl in Houston last night was a big win for our entire state and I don’t want anything to mar that victory. Whoever took this jersey should turn it in. The Texas Rangers are on the trail."

Giddyup!!!

There's more video that has surfaced (courtesy of our friends at Yahoo Sports) showing Brady searching through his equipment bag for the jersey while insisting that he "100 percent" put it in there.
