Jenelle Evans wants everyone to know she's not in an abusive relationship with husband David Eason ... insisting she's totally fine, while trying to sweep her hysterical 911 call under the rug. 

Jenelle posted a confessional Thursday explaining why she's vanished from social media and why her marriage is nothing like the domestic violence she experienced before. 

The "Teen Mom" star says she doesn't care anymore if you believe her ... even if her sobbing 911 call alleging David pinned her to the ground so violently she felt her collarbone crack paints a drastically different picture than her hunky-dory dinner with the fam

She says she's always been an open book, and doesn't understand why people think she's lying about DV. 

Without dropping names, Jenelle hints David treats her better than ex-husband Courtland Keith Rogers, who was arrested in August for allegedly assaulting a different woman.

Jake Paul Sued You Forged My Name on a Lease ... And Then Trashed the Joint!!!

10/24/2018 10:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:42 PM PT -- A source close to Jake tells us the social media star never forged Goodrich's signature. In fact, we're told his signature is nowhere on the lease at all ... he was only listed as a potential tenant. Our source says the actual tenant is 10 Digit Media, so any claim that Goodrich was used for his good credit is BS.Jake Paul forged his buddy's signature and used his good credit to lease a rental property the social media star eventually trashed ... according to the friend who's now suing the prankster and a couple of his pals.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Max Goodrich claims he and Jake considered moving in together at the rental property the YouTube star used for many of his pranks ... but after Max backed out, Jake and 2 of his friends used Max's high credit score, forged his name and put him on the lease. 

We broke the story ... Jake and Max are being sued by the homeowners for allegedly leaving the place in ruins following Jake's year-and-a-half tenancy ... but now Max claims his name should never have been on the lease in the first place. 

Max is suing Jake for fraud and wants Jake to cover any damages from the homeowner's lawsuit.

Joe Rogan On Logan Paul in UFC? 'He's Way Better Than CM Punk!'

10/24/2018 6:04 AM PDT
Breaking News

Joe Rogan doesn't think Logan Paul is a joke -- he watched the YouTube star's boxing match and thinks he has more fighting talent that at least one guy who's fought in the UFC ... CM Punk

First off, Rogan says Punk is a real nice guy and he doesn't mean any disrespect -- but when it comes to his 2 fights in the UFC, Joe realized CM just doesn't have the raw talent it takes to win. 

In fact, Joe -- on the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast -- said Punk's brief stint in the UFC was a "nightmare" ... especially since he fought a guy like Mickey Gall who's "f**king good."

As for Logan, Joe heard Dana White slam the door on the possibility of Paul fighting in the UFC because he'd get hurt -- and says, "You had f**king CM Punk fight! This guy's way better than him."

Joe says he was impressed with Logan's striking skills and wrestling background -- and while he's no Canelo Alvarez, the guy clearly has some level of talent. 

Joe isn't really campaigning for Dana to book Logan a fight -- he's just making the point that it wouldn't be the craziest thing the UFC has ever done.

Jake Paul Calls Out Dana White My Bro Would Murder CM Punk!

10/6/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jake Paul says he's 100,000% positive his bro, Logan Paul, would wreck CM Punk in a real UFC fight -- and now he's firing back at Dana White, who's been trashing the idea all over town. 

"Dana White's thinking small," Jake told us outside Craig's with his GF, Erika Costell

Remember, after Logan fought KSI in a wildly successful pay-per-view fight on YouTube in August ... the social media star told us his goal is to fight in the UFC Octagon -- and he's dead serious. 

Enter UFC honcho Dana White who immediately shot Logan down -- warning he'd get "hurt badly."

But, Jake says Logan's no punk bitch -- he's a real athlete with legit combat training

"My brother's an athlete and has a wrestling background, 5th place at Ohio Division 1 state wrestling (in high school). Has boxed for a year now, will get another year of boxing under his belt before his next fight with KSI."

"Dana White, you might watch this, Dana. You're thinking small. I know you're about the money. Let my brother fight!!"

And, if CM Punk ain't down for the opportunity, we know someone else who wants in on the action.

KSI Logan Paul Would 'Get F*cked' in UFC ... He's Delusional!!

9/26/2018 7:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

KSI says Logan Paul would be out of his damn mind to try and land a real UFC fight ... telling TMZ Sports the YouTube superstar would "get f*cked" in the Octagon.

We spoke with KSI -- who fought Logan in a YouTube superfight last month (which ended in a draw) -- about Paul's UFC pursuits ... and he says the dude's "delusional" to cross over into MMA.

"He ain't got no chance, bro," KSI says. "Anyone in the UFC would f*ck him up."

KSI's not alone ... Dana White warned Logan last week that it would be a "really bad idea" to step into the Octagon ... even though Sage Northcutt has offered to fight him.

As for their own rematch in the boxing ring ... KSI says Logan got lucky the first time, and vowed to get revenge when they fight in L.A. next year.

"Imma f*ck him up, trust."

Logan Paul On Sage Northcutt Fight 'I'd Have to Train My Ass Off'

9/23/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Logan Paul knows he can't just jump in the Octagon and wreck Sage Northcutt -- telling TMZ Sports if the two hammer out a deal ... he'd have to "train his ass off" first. 

Of course, Logan has said he wants a real deal UFC fight -- and Sage Northcutt told us he's down to give him that match. 

The problem for Paul ... Northcutt is a beast who's 11-2 as a pro MMA fighter, with 6 of those wins in the UFC. And, he's only 22 years old! 

"I wouldn't say I'd handle Sage Northcutt," Logan says ... "Sage Northcutt is an animal."

Still, Paul says it would be "fun" to square off with the guy -- if he can put together a real training camp first. 

As for Sage, he told the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show he's all about a fight with Paul because his fans would love it. 

The good news for Logan ... UFC champ Tyron Woodley has already offered to help train Paul up, claiming he was impressed with his boxing match against KSI and thinks he's got real talent. 

Our advice ... call Woodley. Get in the gym. Make it happen.

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.

"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."

Dez Bryant Calls Out Jake Paul Meet Me In The Boxing Ring!!

8/28/2018 6:36 AM PDT
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.
