Conor McGregor Offered to Fight at UFC 222

2/22/2018 12:04 PM PST
Breaking News

Conor McGregor says he's ALREADY reached out to the UFC to fight in the Octagon again -- insisting, "I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out."

McGregor has seemingly just responded to Dana White's comments to TMZ Sports ... in which White said he didn't know if Conor would ever fight again because he's got sooo much money now.

"I am fighting again. Period," Conor says.

"I am the best at this. I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn't enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need."

"I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in."

"On top of the fighting. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ."

UFC 222 is scheduled for March 3 in Vegas. Max Holloway pulled out of the main event against Edgar on February 3 after suffering an injury. 

Harvey Weinstein Repudiates Civil Lawyer For Using Streep & Lawrence in His Defense

2/22/2018 11:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein realizes the enormous misstep his civil lawyer made when he filed legal docs suggesting Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Gwyneth Paltrow have no problem with him, because he's just schooled the attorney, telling him to back off.

Weinstein's rep tells TMZ, "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges the valuable input both Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence have contributed to this conversation and apologizes. Once again, moving forward, Mr. Weinstein has advised his counsel to not include specific names of former associates; and to avoid whenever possible, even if they are in the public record."

Lawrence and Streep blasted Weinstein for dragging them into his defense, calling it exploitative, predatory and downright disgusting.

Blac Chyna Lawyers Get Death Threats I'll 'Stab The Hell Out of You'

2/22/2018 11:16 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna is certainly one to evoke emotion, because her lawyers have been the target of death threats and now the LAPD is on the case.

TMZ has learned her attorneys, Lisa Bloom and Walter Mosley, have been getting emails and Instagram messages threatening their lives and the lives of their families because they chose to rep Chyna and refused to pass a letter on to her. 

Bloom received several threatening emails, one read, "My member is searching for you. If he finds you I gave him instructions already not to kill you but beat you bloody." The messages also mentioned Lisa's daughter, "I will have 5 men rape your daughter by gunpoint at he address by the end of this week."

A text sent to Mosley in December, read, "I be showing up at your house soon next Friday motherf*****. I still have your address. Me and partner will do our inspection. We coming to murder your ass if you at home." The text also included Mosley's former address.

Mosley claims an Instagram message said, "Chyna holding her hand you a soul less motherf*****. So when I give my partner the okay to stab the hell out of you on your nice floor you have ... see life aint easy. I'm going keep watching you. When I'm sick of you then I kill you."

The LAPD has obtained a search warrant to zero in on the culprit or culprits.

Bloom has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Chyna against the Kardashians, claiming they intentionally torpedoed her reality show.

Jennifer Aniston Looks So Sad ... About Justin, or a Movie?

2/22/2018 10:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Aniston made a rare public outing since announcing her split from Justin Theroux ... and she did not look happy.

Jen was spotted leaving Grauman's Chinese Theater Wednesday night after the premiere of her longtime friend Jason Bateman's new movie, "Game Night." She and Jason have been close for nearly 20 years and have done 5 movies together.

However, 'Game' is an action comedy ... so it seems unlikely that is the reason for her solemn face.

As we reported ... Aniston and Theroux announced their separation last week and all signs point to divorce being the next step. We did some digging, though, and they might not ever have been legally married -- which would certainly make the split go smoother, for the lawyers, anyway.

"Game Night" comes out Friday. Don't judge based on Jen's expression.

Farrah Abraham MTV Bullied Me Over My Sexuality!!! I Just Want to Work Hard

2/22/2018 9:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham says she's been bullied and ganged up on by MTV ... and the main reason she's suing is because she doesn't want her daughter to ever be treated that way.

Farrah was in L.A. Wednesday with her daughter, Sophia -- and a couple cute pups -- and she got into the lawsuit she filed against Viacom, MTV's parent company. She says it's no shocker she's going after them, after she was booted from 'Teen Mom.'

She insists she's on to better things now, but had to take a stand with MTV to set an example for her little girl. Sophia even voiced some support for her mom.

Farrah's suing for at least $5 million.

Kylie Jenner Snapchat Tweet Might've Cost Snap $1.3B!!!

2/22/2018 10:27 AM PST

Kylie Jenner's bitching about Snapchat might've inadvertently inflicted some pain ... in Snapchat's pockets.

The reality star tweeted Wednesday, saying she doesn't use the social media app at all or as much as she did before. And less than 24 hours after that tweet, Snapchat's shares tanked by as much as 7.2% ... equaling a whopping $1.3 BILLION loss. Coincidence?

No one can say for sure that her tweet caused the domino effect ... but Kylie does have a massive influence (she has a combined 128.5M followers on Twitter and Instagram) on Snapchat's coveted demographic -- 18 to 34 year olds. But analysts point to Snapchat's recent app redesign for SC's decline in active users, who HATE the redesign and forced SC to rethink things.

For what it's worth ... Kylie tweeted 11 minutes later professing her love for Snapchat. Too little, too late?    

Ex-NFL Linebacker Murdered By Cocaine Dealers ... Officials Say

2/22/2018 11:04 AM PST
Breaking News

Ex-NFL linebacker Robert Eddins -- who played briefly with the Buffalo Bills -- was shot to death in a basement by 3 drug dealers ... officials say. 

Eddins and another man, Ricardo McFarlin, were murdered in 2016 in an "execution style" shooting at Robert's grandmother's home in Detroit. 

Now, officials have charged 3 men in connection with the killings -- Michael Griffin, Dennis Epps and Mariano Garcia. Officials say all three men were part of a plot to deal more than 5 kilos of cocaine and heroin. 

Prosecutors say the suspects traveled from Alabama to Detroit specifically to kill Eddins -- and in the process, killed the other man as well. 

Cops say both victims were found with gunshots to the head. 

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration issued a statement on the case ... saying, "The murders of Eddin and McFarlin is just another example of how violence is intertwined with drug trafficking."

Eddins signed with the Bills in 2011 after going undrafted out of Ball State. He also played with Buffalo in 2012 but only appeared in 1 regular season game.

He later went on to play in the Canadian Football League. 

Quincy Jones My Bad for Spilling the Beans, Guys ... My Fam Had to Intervene!

2/22/2018 9:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Quincy Jones has apologized for his recent "wordvomit" interviews -- his word -- in which he revealed A LOT of dirt on Hollywood elites ... but he isn't taking any of it back. 

The legendary music producer said Thursday his six daughters pulled him aside for a surprise "family intervention" due to some "silly things" he's said lately.

He goes on to say he'd recently stopped drinking (3 years ago) and makes a point that certain details he's spilled on don't paint the full picture of his intentions or experiences over his "long & crazy life." That said ... he doesn't correct the record on anything.

Quincy does, however, apologize to anyone he's bad-mouthed -- like Michael Jackson, for example -- adding that it's inexcusable to do so. He also hopes messages he relayed about racism, inequality, poverty, etc. aren't clouded by his outrageous remarks.

Quincy's caused quite a stir by saying lots of things -- some of which appeared to be true -- like Richard Pryor banging Marlon Brando, MJ hijacking "Billie Jean," Marilyn Monroe having "a chest that looked like pears" ... and allegedly "dating" Ivanka Trump.

For all that stuff ... he's sorry. But again ... not retracting anything.

2/22/2018 9:17 AM PST

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are answering Bob Marley's eternal question ... yes, this is definitely love.

Justin and Selena's PDA at Jeremy Bieber and Chelsey Rebelo's Jamaican wedding rose to epic levels, as you can tell from these shots of them hanging poolside this week ... after the ceremony. 

It wasn't only a tropical makeout session -- JB seemed to be having a blast imitating the Old Spice guy to a tee -- hands on hips, chest out ... and swan dive into the pool.

As we reported ... the young couple has been practically inseparable since arriving for the wedding Monday in the hills of Montego Bay.

Selena and the Biebs are back stateside as of Thursday, but they've gotta look back on the trip fondly.

Aside from their own relationship ... Justin's got a new baby sis on the way, as you can see from Chelsey's belly.

Jennifer Lawrence Blasts Harvey Weinstein 'This is What Predators Do'

2/22/2018 5:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Lawrence has joined the chorus blasting Harvey Weinstein for suggesting she's fine with his conduct, at least toward her.

Weinstein filed legal docs Wednesday trying to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of all women who dealt with the fallen mogul, saying Lawrence had spoken "glowingly" about him and quoting her as saying, "He had only ever been nice to me."

Lawrence tells TMZ, "Harvey Weinstein and his company are continuing to do what they have always done which is to take things out of context and use them for their own benefit. This is what predators do, and it must stop."

Lawrence goes on ... "For the record, while I was not victimized personally by Harvey Weinstein, I stand behind the women who have survived his terrible abuse and I applaud them in using all means necessary to bring him to justice whether through criminal or civil actions. Time's up."

Meryl Streep, who was also mentioned in Weinstein's docs, called Weinstein's legal tactics, "pathetic and exploitative."

Kodak Black 3 Charges Dropped from Home Raid ... Still in Jail, Though

2/22/2018 6:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black and his attorneys scored a small victory in his latest legal war -- he got 3 criminal charges dropped.

The State of Florida dismissed one charge each -- for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect ... according to Kodak's attorney, Bradford Cohen.

The charges all stem from the January raid at the rapper's Florida home. You'll recall, police were alerted after he posted an IG Live video ... showing several men with guns and drugs. Kodak's young son also walked into the room. Police say they found 94.9 grams of marijuana.

Kodak's still facing other charges, including marijuana possession and possession of ammunition. He's still in jail for a probation violation.

We're told the 3 charges that were dropped were tossed because prosecutors lacked sufficient evidence to go forward.

Baby steps.

'Goliath' Star Tania Raymonde Down with New Sex Scene Proposals

2/22/2018 8:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Goliath" star Tania Raymonde has done a sex scene or two in her career ... so any new guidelines that would make it more comfortable for her and other actresses is totally OK with her.

We got Tania at LAX Wednesday where we asked her about a new union proposal that includes having an "intimacy director" on set. The move comes on the heels of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to protect actresses who might feel they're being pressured to get naked in auditions or forced into aggressive kissing.

Tania -- who appears topless and has several sex scenes in Billy Bob Thornton's Amazon show, "Goliath" -- says she's pretty lucky that her scenes have always felt comfortable ... but measures to make it even more comfortable are always welcome.
