Exclusive Details

Gabriel Iglesias -- aka Fluffy -- put his tour on hold to save his life, and now it's clear what's he's been doing to get healthy ... boxing.

Iglesias canceled some stops on his hugely successful comedy tour earlier this month citing health and emotional issues. Well, now we've learned, Fluffy's been hitting the gym with celeb boxing trainer Ricky Funez and he's already dropped over 20 pounds.

At the time he stopped his tour, he weighed more than 360 lbs.

We're told Fluffy puts on the gloves 5x a week for 2 hours at a time ... putting in work in the ring and on the speed bag ...  his goal is to shed 50 more pounds before hitting the road again.

Funez is no stranger to training celebs ... Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather and Mike Epps have all rolled through his Ten Goose Boxing in the valley.

Cue the 'Rocky' theme song!

Pats owner Robert Kraft was actually happy to see the FBI -- because they forked over Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jerseys!!!

The Bureau posted this photo shot at Gillette Stadium Thursday ... where the QB's Super Bowl 49 and 51 jerseys were returned from Mexico. The recovery was the result of a massive international jersey hunt that led to a reporter in Mexico whom authorities say was the thief.

Kraft said, "We want to thank the FBI, the Mexican authorities and the many different local agencies that were involved in the investigation and ultimate recovery of Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey."

He added, "Working along with the Patriots and NFL security, those agencies collectively coordinated an investigation that also led to the recovery of Tom's missing Super Bowl XLIX jersey."

Nicely done!

EXCLUSIVE

Miguel isn't batting an eyelash at a woman's claim that he forcefully exposed her breast -- saying it's nothing more than a cry for attention ... and not worth his time.

We got the singer Thursday at LAX, where our camera guy asks what his take is on a University of New Mexico student taking to IG and publicly accusing him of sexual assault.

Watch -- Miguel chalks it up to the times and people's thirst for the spotlight. It's interesting though ... he brushes off the allegation without an outright denial.

update_graphic_red_bar

1:26 PM PT -- We've now obtained the police report, which says Erica told the state trooper -- after being pulled over for speeding -- she had taken 3 shots of Grand Marnier. When asked to perform a field sobriety test Erica refused. According to the report, the trooper ordered her not to drive and call a friend to pick her up. Instead, she fled and was ultimately arrested.

update_grey_gray_bar

Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Erica Dixon was damn near yanked out of her car by cops after she allegedly fled the scene of a traffic stop.

The video starts with a street scene, where Erica had just been pulled over for speeding. She says she accepted the ticket, jumped in her car and started driving, but it's clear cops believe she was still being detained and just started to flee.

You then see a cop car roar up to her car and cops then jump out to confront her.

Erica was enraged, which just ratcheted things up. She was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to a nearby detention center where she was cited and released.

Kristi Yamaguchi To Nancy Kerrigan No Bad Blood Over 'Break a Leg' Tweet

3/23/2017 8:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324-kristin-yamaguchi-nancy-kerrigan-tmzKristi Yamaguchi says she was NOT throwing shade at Nancy Kerrigan when she told her to "break a leg" on "Dancing with the Stars" ... explaining it was just an innocent tweet between friends. 

Social media went crazy over the tweet in which she told her fellow ice skater, "So excited for you! Can't wait to see you grace that ballroom floor, break a leg! #DWTS" 

Some people thought Kristi was taking a cheap shot.

But Kristi's rep tells us that couldn't be further from the truth -- they've been friends since they were 15 and she has nothing but love for her.

We also spoke with Nancy's rep who says the two spoke on the phone Wednesday night and laughed about it.

Nia Long 'Empire' Hair and Makeup Lodged Complaint Nia Threatened Suit

3/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322_taraji-henson-nia-long-and-terrence-howard-tmz-2Nia Long was such a nightmare on the set of "Empire" ... the hair and makeup folks lodged an official complaint against her, and Nia also threatened to sue the show over an improper goodbye ... this according to well-placed production sources.

Multiple people -- cast, crew and production people -- tell TMZ Nia was disrespectful and unprofessional throughout her run on the show.

We broke the story ... Nia and Taraji P. Henson were at war with each other because Taraji was irate over the way Nia treated the staff, and it got so bad producers were trying to figure out how to shoot scenes with the two of them where each actress did their part separately. It was so tense neither would speak to the other.

The various sources are scoffing at Nia's reps, who claim the stories about the actress are made up. Our sources say there were numerous incidents, but 3 are still vivid.

-- Our sources say in the history of the show the hair and makeup people have only filed one formal complaint for mistreatment ... and that was against Nia. The hair and makeup people say she was extremely disrespectful ... at times deciding she didn't like her look at the last minute and then chewing them out. The sources say there have been numerous guest appearances on the show -- "from rappers to Demi Moore, and no complaints were lodged against anyone but Nia."

-- Our sources say Nia was "habitually late." They say Taraji and Terrence Howard would sometimes be waiting on set for 30 minutes and Nia was a no-show. Producers would finally use a stand-in for Nia so Taraji and Terrence could rehearse a scene.

-- It is custom on the set when guest stars finish their last scene for the Assistant Director to call it out ... "This is (name of actor) last scene," followed by a "thank you" and applause. When Nia did her last scene, Terrence was having some sort of allergic reaction and his lip began swelling. The A.D. was looking for Benadryl when Nia left. It's unclear if the A.D. was distracted or just didn't want to thank Nia, but we're told as Nia walked out she told someone in production she was going to sue the show because the "goodbye" was in her contract. Production sources say it was not in her contract.

We spoke with one actor on the show who said the experience was so unpleasant they would never work with her again.

We reached out to Nia's rep, who said, "We stand by our comments this morning that Nia has always, and continues to be, a consummate professional on set. In respect to her working relationships with the cast, she came onto this project, in the first place, because of her long-standing friendship and professional relationship with Terrence Howard."

The rep went on to say, "We are not aware of any complaint, suit or case against her from anyone involved in the show, and we find the timing of all of these stories to be very suspicious, given that the series returns tonight."

0323-boston-band-member-sib-GETTY-01Sib Hashian -- the drummer for the rock group Boston -- died after collapsing onstage Wednesday night ... TMZ has learned.

Sib's son, Adam, tells us the drummer was on the Legends of Rock Cruise and was midset when he suddenly collapsed. A witness says CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used but to no avail.

The L.O.R. Cruise began on March 18 in Florida and had stops in several places including Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. We're told the cruise will continue and other musicians are performing tributes to Sib on the boat Thursday.

The drummer -- who donned an EPIC afro in the early days of his stellar career -- was famously part of Boston's self-titled album, which featured the mega-hit "More Than a Feeling."

Sib's daughter, Lauren, has a daughter with Dwayne Johnson.
