Khabib Nurmagomedov Conor McGregor's UFC Career Is Over '100%' Getting Stripped!!

2/16/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor hasn't stepped inside the Octagon in over 15 MONTHS ... and UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov says that's proof he ain't fighting EVER again.

At least, not in MMA.

"I don’t think he gonna come back," Khabib told TMZ Sports outside Jay Glazer's MMA gym in Hollywood.

"When is Conor compete last time in MMA? Long time. He's boxing guy."

Khabib says McGregor's team is focused on a rematch with Floyd Mayweather ... instead of a real fight against him or Tony Ferguson -- who he's facing at UFC 223 in April.

Khabib also told us his contract for the Ferguson scrap explicitly states they're fighting for the "real belt" -- which means the UFC is "100%" stripping Conor of his lightweight title.

FYI, Dana White still hasn't made an official decision on Conor's championship status or his future with the UFC.

Stay tuned ...

Breaking News

Chicago Cubs star Anthony Rizzo choked back tears while delivering a powerful speech at the vigil for those lost in the tragic shooting at his H.S. alma mater ... and he's calling for the government to make a change.

Rizzo -- who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL -- addressed the crowd mourning the 17 people killed in Wednesday's massacre ... promising to do whatever he can to help his community.

"I've been very impressed with talking to the students and how they're taking care of each other and how they're coming together," Rizzo said.

"I want you to know that you're not alone in your grief."

Rizzo added "I'm a baseball player, but I'm also an American, I'm a Floridian, and I'm a Parklander for life."

"While I don't have all the answers, I know that something has to change before this is visited by another community and another community and another community."

We also talked to PGA golfer Nicholas Thompson -- who was born and raised in the area, and graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. -- about the impact the shooting has had on his family, and how he plans to help the community heal.

Lil Pump I Got Me Rich Lawyers, Yo ... To Fight Firearms Charges

2/15/2018 3:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump isn't taking his arrest Wednesday night seriously ... which is the biggest understatement of the week.

We got the 17-year-old Thursday at 2:30 PM leaving Sylmar Juvenile Court, and he was as hyped as ever, showing off his newly acquired jewelry ... an ankle monitor. 

He was also spittin' bars about popping Xanax and boasting about Gucci tats.

TMZ broke the story ... Pump was arrested for firing a handgun into the door of his San Fernando Valley residence. He had told cops intruders had fired from the outside in, but cops quickly realized it was the opposite -- that Pump was the shooter and there were no intruders.

He was arrested and taken to a Juvenile detention center, because he's still a minor. 

Sen. Cruz on FL Shooting Hypocrite Celebs Want Gun Control For Everyone, But Their Bodyguards

2/15/2018 4:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't want to hear a peep from Hollywood about gun control -- in the wake of the Florida high school shooting -- 'cause he says they're operating under a double standard.

We got Cruz Thursday in D.C. and he says celebs weighing in on gun control is totally hypocritical -- considering the kind of firepower their security details use. The Senator added, the cry for new gun laws after tragedies like the Parkland shooting undermines the true intent of the 2nd Amendment ... in his eyes.

He held up the heroics of a citizen during the Sutherland Springs, TX mass shooting as an example of ordinary Americans needing to be armed.

Cruz got a few of the facts wrong, but he's making his point, loud and clear here.

Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Separated ... Divorce Looms

2/15/2018 3:30 PM PST
Breaking News

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have separated, and all signs point to divorce. 

The couple issued a statement saying they are separating. According to the statement, they made a mutual decision at the end of 2017 to split. The statement reads, "We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship." These are not words of a couple that hopes to stay married.

Jennifer was just at Amy Schumer's wedding Tuesday and Justin was nowhere to be seen. He was in New York over the weekend when Jennifer turned 49, which she celebrated with her gal pals in Malibu.

The couple became engaged in 2012, 7 years after her split from Brad Pitt. She married Justin in 2015. TMZ broke the story about their wedding at their Bel-Air estate, which was super secret.

On Wednesday -- Valentine's Day -- Justin was seen packing a bunch of luggage and other items in an SUV outside the NYC apartment he and Jen shared. 

Jennifer recently told Architectural Digest about the difficulty of remodeling their Bel-Air mansion as a couple, saying, "I figured out that immediately saying 'No!' to any suggestion is not the most collaborative move."

They have no kids.

Nikolas Cruz -- the alleged shooter who killed 17 people at a Florida high school -- casually blended in with fleeing students while making his getaway ... then stopped at Subway for a drink.

Law enforcement says Cruz entered a nearby Walmart shortly after ending his shooting spree and went inside to order a drink at the Subway inside the store. He then left the store on foot and walked to McDonald's, where he laid low for a few minutes ... before taking off on foot.

Cops caught up with Cruz about 40 minutes later and arrested him.

As we reported ... Cruz made online threats about a mass campus shooting 9 months ago, and was even reported to the FBI for more disturbing YouTube comments back in September.

EXCLUSIVE

'Amazing Race' couple Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf have been through a lot together -- in the public eye -- and now they can add getting engaged to the list.

We got this video of Cody proposing to Jessica at the top of Runyon Canyon Park's hiking trail in L.A. Tuesday ... and there were no shortage of tears flowing when she said yes.

We're told Cody ran ahead of her to make it a surprise, and told the group of people in the area his plan ... which is how he had a nice cheering section. Quality move.

You may recall ... Cody and Jessica met on last season of "Big Brother" and became one of its showmances, but not without controversy. Cody was portrayed as a villain on the show, and Jessica was slammed for unwanted butt-poking of other houseguests.

The 2 always stuck together, though ... and now it appears that's their goal for life.

Congrats!

Jennifer Hudson, David Otunga Child Therapist Off Limits

2/15/2018 1:37 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga cannot use their son's child therapist to make their custody case ... at least that's what the lawyer for the 8-year-old is demanding ... TMZ has learned. 

The lawyer the judge appointed to represent David Jr. has filed legal docs asking the judge to prohibit Jennifer or David from calling the therapist to the stand to testify about the boy's state of mind and how the custody war has affected him.

We're told the reason the lawyer wants the protective order is so David Jr. can feel comfortable opening up with his therapist about both parents, without fear they will learn what he said.

Both sides, we're told, have been put on notice that David Jr.'s lawyer is asking the judge for the order.

No decision has been made, but it's a good bet the judge will sign on.

Nicole Eggert Even IF I Was 18 ... Baio Was Too Old for Sex with Me!

2/15/2018 2:28 PM PST

Nicole Eggert's got new beef with Scott Baio -- now she's essentially claiming he's a dirty old man.

Nicole was on "Good Day LA" Thursday when she was asked about Scott insisting she was 18 when they had sex. Her response -- "Let's say that were true. That still made him how old?"

The answer to her question is Scott would have been 29 or 30 ... clearly, too old in Nicole's eyes. She also insinuated Scott's guilty of just being creepy because she thinks, if nothing else, he thought about having sex with her before she was legal.

Eggert has previously said she thinks she was as young as 14 when she and Scott first hooked up. As we've reported ... he denies any sexual contact with Nicole while she was underage.

Florida Shooting I Reported Cruz to FBI 5 Months Ago ... Whistleblower Speaks Out

2/15/2018 1:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nikolas Cruz, the now-confessed Florida school shooter, was on the FBI's radar 5 months ago, thanks to a man who reported a disturbingly violent comment Cruz left on a YouTube video.

We spoke to Ben Bennight, a Mississippi bail bondsman, who says he regularly posts vids related to his job. He says back in September he noticed Cruz commented on one of them, saying ... "I'm going to be a professional school shooter." He says he immediately contacted authorities.

Ben told us all the details about his FBI interview, and added ... he never heard from agents again until after Wednesday's horrifying events. Cruz now admits to killing 17 people during the rampage at his old high school.

The FBI says it never made contact with Cruz after they spoke to Ben. They say the comment was not specific enough to warrant a subpoena for an IP address or other info from YouTube ... which might have led them to Cruz.

As we reported ... Cruz also referenced a mass campus shooting in a YouTube comment 9 months ago.

Jeffrey Tambor Amazon Honchos Say ... You Can't Quit, We're Firing You!!!

2/15/2018 12:59 PM PST
Breaking News

5:45 PM PT -- Tambor's responded, saying he's disappointed in the handling of these "false accusations" against him by Amazon and more so Soloway, and claims in his 4 years of working with her on "Transparent," the accusations were never revealed to him or discussed directly. He says he will continue to vehemently defend himself.

He adds ... "I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set." He also says the "biggest heartbreak" is that the show is now in jeopardy.Jeffrey Tambor is officially off his award-winning show, "Transparent" -- Amazon Studios announced the firing after investigating the sexual harassment allegations against him.

Amazon didn't release the results of its internal investigation, but easy to read between the lines ... since they canned their star. Tambor had previously claimed he was quitting the show after his former assistant and a co-star accused him. He later backed off that, but it's a moot point now.

"Transparent" showrunner Jill Soloway said, "We are taking definitive action to ensure our workplace respects the safety and dignity of every individual, and are staking steps to heal as family."

Sounds like the investigation results were all bad for Tambor -- and it also seems the show will go on without him.
