Roseanne Barr 'The Conners' Writers Kill Me off With an Opioid OD

9/17/2018 4:21 PM PDT
Breaking News

Roseanne Barr's character on "The Conners" will be killed off by an opioid overdose ... so says the comedian herself.

Barr was on Brandon Straka's "Walk Away" when she revealed the gigantic spoiler. Barr tells Straka the pill addiction story line was her own from last season, and it appears the writers for "The Conners" decided to run with it. 

As we reported ... Barr got the ax from "Roseanne" just hours after she posted a tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, comparing her to the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes."

Barr has worked on various projects since the firing ... appearing on podcasts and even hosting a talk show of her own.

It's still possible writers for "The Conners" could change their minds on how to kill Roseanne -- or it wasn't an OD at all -- but she seems pretty serious and pretty pissed about the whole thing.

If Logan Paul REALLY wants an MMA fight -- Sage Northcutt tells TMZ Sports he's READY!!!

Remember, before his big boxing match with KSI, Logan said his dream is to fight in the UFC

 

Well, Sage has 8 fights in the UFC under his belt -- and told us, if Logan is serious ... bring it on! 

"I think my fans would love watching that," 22-year-old Northcutt said on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs weeknights on FS1). 

"It could be massive."

Sage says he's impressed with Logan's high school wrestling accomplishments (he placed in the Ohio state tournament, one of the most respected state tourneys in the country). 

He also watched Logan's boxing match and thinks the dude has real talent. 

"I would like to see myself fight him ... I think it would be a good match-up."

And, if Logan isn't down for a true mixed martial arts fight -- Sage says he's down for a traditional boxing match, too. 

"This actually could be really cool."

We reached out to Logan to see if he's interested in making this thing happen -- so far, no word back.

Breaking News

Fresh off kickin' Deji's ass... Jake Paul is already getting challenged to step back into the ring ... by All-Pro wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Dez apparently tried to congratulate Jake's brother, Logan, via Twitter DMs on his fight with KSI ... except he got the 2 Paul's confused and accidentally messaged Jake.

After Dez explained the mistake, Jake clapped back by congratulating the current free agent on his massive contract extension ... pretending to mix Bryant with L.A. Rams superstar Todd Gurley, who just signed a 4-yr., $57.5 mil contract this past July.

Jake (who happens to be a Cleveland Browns fan) made the interaction public ... saying "Dez Bryant don’t want the smoke💨 & no team wants Dez Bryant!! GO BROWNS!!"

When Dez was asked about Jake, he said "I guess he called himself trying to clown..we can get in the boxing ring tho if he want smoke."

Of course, Jake just got done beating up on Deji this past Saturday ... and proceeded to call out Chris Brown as his next opponent.

But, something tells us he'd be thrilled to face off with an NFL superstar.

Logan Paul & KSI Face-To-Face ... Superfight Weigh-In

8/24/2018 7:53 AM PDT

Logan Paul and KSI just faced off one final time before they try to kill each other in the ring ... with the superfight weigh-ins going down Friday afternoon in Manchester ... and, of course, there were more insults.

KSI continued to go after L.P.'s girlfriend, Chloe Bennet ... walking onto the stage wearing a mask of the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." star's face.

Logan hit back with a jab of his own by giving KSI some chewing gum ... to suggest his breath stinks?

It's no secret ... these 2 social media superstars have been training their asses off for this moment ... and tensions are high.

The undercard fighters -- little bros Jake Paul and Deji -- didn't meet face-to-face during Friday's event after the 2 got in an altercation at Jake's fan meet and greet earlier this week.

Legendary boxing announcer Michael Buffer asked Jake for a prediction ... he said he's gunning for a 1st-round KO. 

Deji responded by calling Jake "delusional" ... and claiming it was Paul 's decision not to weigh in at the same time because he's scared.

Tomorrow can't come soon enough.

EXCLUSIVE

KSI's getting some last minute work in the ring before trying to bash Logan Paul's face in this weekend ... putting his skills on display in a boxing sesh and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

The 25-year-old YouTube star hit the gym in Manchester, England for a public workout session in front of fans and media. We're told KSI has been training like a maniac, taking the fight very seriously. 

KSI and Logan Paul will face off on August 25 -- the two have been promoting the event like crazy ... and both have dreams off launching into pro fighting careers afterward.  

Logan was a star high school wrestler and placed in the Ohio state tournament his senior year. He's a real deal athlete and pro fighters have told TMZ Sports they're genuinely impressed. 

KSI already has a fight under his belt -- he beat up YouTube star Joe Weller in a bout earlier this year and has been focused on training ever since. 

Check out the training video -- dude's got some quick hands. 

While Logan vs. KSI is the main card, their younger brothers Jake Paul and Deji are the undercard. They've been talking all sorts of crap for months ... and Jake even SLAPPED Deji during an altercation at a fan meet and greet on Wednesday.

It all goes down on Saturday. No more talking. Just fighting.

8/22/2018 8:02 AM PDT
Breaking News

Jake Paul just gave Deji -- the guy he's fighting in Manchester -- a Rick James welcome to his fan meet and greet ... introducing his 5 fingers to Deji's face, SLAPPIN' THE HELL OUT OF HIM!!

The slap to Deji's face all went down when KSI's little bro crashed Jake's gym ... where he was meeting up with fans for autographs and pics.

The YouTube star walked in -- talked trash -- and then had his face smacked to the moon by Logan Paul's baby bro.

"Deji showed up at my gym unannounced to try & talk shit," Jake said of the altercation.

"As soon as he walked in I slapped him in the face like the Bitch he is & then he left like a bitch..."

Fight night is just three days away. Thoughts and prayers go out to Deji in the meantime.

Lamar Odom Had 12 Strokes, 6 Heart Attacks ... During Coma

Breaking News

Lamar Odom says it's a miracle he's alive -- revealing he had 12 strokes and 6 heart attacks while he was in a coma from his 2015 drug overdose. 

Th ex-NBA star spilled his guts about the incident to Kevin Hart while sitting in an ice bath for KH's YouTube show, "Cold as Balls."

"All my doctors that see me say I'm a walking miracle," Odom said while shivering in the ice tub next to Hart. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Odom was rushed to a hospital on October 13, 2015 after he was found unconscious at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada. 

Blood tests showed Odom had cocaine in his system at the time of his overdose. There were times doctors didn't think Odom would survive -- but somehow, he managed to pull through. 

Since recovering, Odom has been to rehab and says he's now fully sober and over his addiction. 

In fact, Odom told Kevin Hart he feels grateful to be alive -- joking about how it beats the alternative. 

During the "Cold as Balls" segment, Odom also joked about the brothel and opened up about how much he appreciated Khloe Kardashian stepping up and handling his care while he was unconscious. 

"It was big," Odom said about Khloe. 

Odom -- who was legally married to Khloe (but separated) at the time of the overdose -- had tried to get back with her after he got better ... but she had moved on

Now, Odom seems to have moved on with his life as well ... he's been spotted out with different women since getting healthy, although he hasn't said if he's in a serious relationship with any of them. 

Jake Paul Gets Drilled In the Stomach ... Punch Me Harder!!!

8/20/2018 7:10 AM PDT

Jake Paul can multitask -- here he is threatening to "f**k up" Deji ... while some dude repeatedly punches him in the stomach!

Jake and Deji are just 5 days away from their boxing match in England -- an event that some say could have more viewers than Mayweather vs. McGregor.

The main event features Jake and Deji's older brothers -- Logan Paul vs. KSI -- two YouTube stars who both claim they're using this fight as a step toward becoming pro fighters.

As for Jake and Deji -- no pro aspirations here ... these guys just hate each other.

Jake's abs seem to be ready. Is his jaw?

Logan Paul I'd Fight Jake Paul ... On One Condition

8/12/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wanna see Logan Paul throw fists at his brother, Jake Paul?? Well, better hope for a crappy Thanksgiving in the Paul household.

Logan tells TMZ Sports the ONLY way he'll step in the ring with his YouTube star little brother is if the two have "real-life" beef. 

Judging by the way the two palled around when we got them at LAX this week ... don't bet on that happening any time soon.

It's too bad ... 'cause the two have been training like maniacs for their August 25 superfight with KSI and Deji -- so a Paul showdown would be must-see (YouTube) TV afterward.

BUT ... if the brothers WERE to hypothetically ever step in the squared circle -- Jake did give us his thoughts on who he thinks would win ... and maybe that spurs some drama among the Pauls?!

Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn Logan Paul/KSI Fight Disgusts Me ... But I Love It

8/11/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eddie Hearn -- the promoter in charge of Anthony Joshua's career -- says the fight between Logan Paul and KSI is an insult to hardcore boxing fans ... an insult he'd LOVE to promote.

Hearn basically controls boxing on the other side of the pond ... promoting not only AJ, but stars like Amir Khan, Daniel Jacobs and Tony Bellew.

Being that the fight is happening in his backyard in Manchester, we had to get Hearn's take on the event, and he told us he HATES IT and LOVES IT, all at the same time.

"How can you not congratulate them? This is a venture that's got a lot of people talking. Again, from a hardcore boxing fan's point of view, it makes my skin crawl. But, from a promoter's point of view, I have to say congratulations."

Hearn's point is clear ... he says Logan and KSI have managed to capture the interest of non-boxing fans, which Eddie says is the key to making a big splash on pay-per-view.

The fight goes down on August 25. We're sure Eddie will be repulsed and excited by it.

Logan Paul ain't the only Paul whoopin' ass in the ring ...

Here's little bro Jake Paul beating the snot out of one his sparring partners ahead of his huge fight with KSI's little bro, Deji, on August 25.

You can see Jake's big bro, Logan, watching the session from outside the ring -- and loving it. 

A couple of guys who were at the house rushed over to help the sparring partner. If they REALLY wanted to help, they woulda taught him how to counterpunch. 

By the way ... the ring is in Jake's living room -- 'cause he's THAT serious about winning in the YouTube stars' tilt later this month.

Remember ... TMZ Sports also got video of Logan putting a beating on his sparring partner during a training sesh back in June when he put the guy on his ass with a solid left hook.

KSI is in some SERIOUS trouble come August 25 ... so says Logan Paul's old roommate, Mark Dohner, who tells TMZ Sports he knows firsthand what the social media star is capable of doing.

Dohner -- who has more than 2 MILLION subscribers on YouTube -- says he's had his fair share of scuffles with Logan in the 2 years they lived together ... and thinks KSI's gonna be severely outmatched.
