EXCLUSIVE

Laila Ali thinks it's GREAT Colin Kaepernick received the special award named after her father -- but she ain't exactly ready to call him the modern day Muhammad Ali

FYI, the winner of the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award is selected by representatives of Sports Illustrated and the Ali family to "honor a figure who embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world."

"Isn't that wonderful?" Laila told TMZ Sports when asked about Colin ... "He has my 100% stamp of approval."

We then said, "People are calling him the modern day Muhammad Ali. Do you agree?"

She kinda gave us a look ... and said, "I think it's good he got the award though."

Some props better than no props -- right?

Tobey Maguire & Jennifer Meyer Back Together ... At Least for a Night

12/8/2017 7:07 AM PST

Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer split up over a year ago but you could never tell from this photo.

Tobey came out to support his estranged wife Thursday night at a launch party at the Sunset Tower hotel in WeHo for an event celebrating her jewelry collection. She's partnering with Jenna Dewan Tatum and profits from the line go directly to a charity -- Baby2Baby, which supplies diapers and other baby-related stuff to low income families.

Despite being separated, neither has filed for divorce.

Tobey and Jen frequently hang out but their 2 kids are always there ... not last night.

Unclear if there's a reconciliation, but there's definitely smoke.

Eminem Blasts Crooked Cops, Shouts Out Kaepernick ... In New Track

12/8/2017 7:41 AM PST
Breaking News

Eminem is on the warpath about racism in America in his new track, "Untouchable" -- even dropping a verse about Colin Kaepernick and his national anthem demonstration.

"They call it a Kaepernick tantrum if you don't stand for the national anthem," Shady says in the track that dropped Friday. 

"They gonna say you're tying to take an irrational stance if you try to slander the flag ... but somebody has to be the sacrificial lamb."

There's more ... a lot more ... but it's probably best if you stop reading and just listen. 

Dan Rather Burger Boner!!! Loses In-N-Out Virginity

12/8/2017 7:14 AM PST

Dan Rather just broke a BIG story that changes everything -- for him, at least, because the legendary newsman just bit into his first In-N-Out burger!

Dan was seriously moved by the experience after making the long-awaited fast food stop in the Bay Area. Yeah, he's 86 years old, but as he wrote ... "I can honestly say it was worth the wait."

The CBS news vet is touring to promote his book, "What Unites Us." Sounds like he found a new chapter in between the patties of a double-double: "When in doubt, I now will 'In N Out.' And a great milkshake can certainly be a big part of #WhatUnitesUs."

Don't forget the fries, Dan.

Tupac's Outlawz Member Objects to Penis Pic Sale ... Don't Be So Thirsty!

12/8/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tupac in his prime might've been down to have a pic of his junk out in the public -- but not a 46-year-old Pac had he survived ... which is just one reason his pal doesn't want it sold. 

We spoke to Outlawz member E.D.I. Mean about Pac's ex-GF attempting to sell an old photo of his frank and beans -- and while he says he understands the possible reason behind it ... he doesn't approve.

Sounds like E.D.I.'s making a case for good old-fashioned respect -- which he doesn't believe this ex has much if she's seriously trying to hawk Pac's photo

As for whether the man himself would be flattered ... E says age changes everything. 

Archdiocese of L.A. Holy Crap, Lil Pump Filmed 'Gucci Gang' At Our School?!?!

12/8/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump got a Catholic elementary school in serious trouble with the Archdiocese of L.A. because it wrongfully allowed the rapper to film himself smoke weed, drink lean and hold bags full of kush for his "Gucci Gang" music video.

Blessed Sacrament School is where the insanely popular video -- amassing 244 million views on YouTube -- was filmed, but there was a huge problem ... the school never told its bosses at the Archdiocese about the video or what would be in it.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of L.A. tells TMZ ... the school failed to follow filming policy and procedures, which are extremely strict at all of its schools and parishes.

The Archdiocese had zero clue Lil Pump would be rolling up to the school's parking lot in a Lamborghini with a blunt in one hand and double-cupping in the other.

It gets worse ... he slaps a teacher with a bag of pot in the school's hallway and he serves his video classmates sizzurp. The Archdiocese says it's looking into the matter. We reached out to the school for comment, but so far no word back.

We've seen this before -- Fetty Wap filmed similar scenes at a Paterson, NJ high school ... resulting in the principal getting suspended.

Steve Harvey Sued for Alleged Fraud Involving Charity Blames Oprah, Tyler Perry for Bad Financial Advice

12/7/2017 5:04 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Steve Harvey is being sued by a guy who claims he was hired by the TV mogul to raise $20 million for the Steve and Marjorie Foundation as well as other ventures and got royally stiffed.

Vincent Dimmock claims he struck a deal with Harvey in April to raise the $20 mil, and in return he says he was promised 12.5% of everything he brought in. Dimmock says in the lawsuit he had access to high-level execs, A-list entertainers and political figures including a former President, and he got pledges for $20 mil.

According to the suit, Dimmock delivered on the first million but Harvey refused to pay him his commission.

Dimmock claims Harvey never intended to pay him and then goes on to make various allegations. 

Dimmock says he introduced Harvey to an investor in May, and during their meeting he allegedly disparaged women, blamed Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry for giving him bad financial advice and also blamed Barack Obama for Harvey's "disastrous meeting with Donald Trump." 

He says Harvey and his foundation were in bad financial shape because of a series of P.R. gaffes, including mocking Asian men and meeting with Trump.

We reached out to Harvey's agent, Todd Frank, who tells TMZ, "It sounds fake. Steve is the most loyal guy in the world. I've never been stiffed on a commission from Steve Harvey in 21 years."

Bryan Singer Sued for Allegedly Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old Boy Singer Denies Allegations

12/7/2017 4:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

7:15 PM PT -- Singer's lawyer, Andrew Brettler, had some additional comments for TMZ ... "Bryan categorically denies these allegations and will vehemently defend this lawsuit to the very end ... When Sanchez-Guzman filed for bankruptcy only a few years ago, he failed to disclose this alleged claim when he was supposed to identify all of his assets, but conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events."

Brettler adds, "The attorney behind this lawsuit is the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Bryan Singer in 2014. In the end, Egan was forced to dismiss that case once the facts came out and his story completely fell apart."

Famed director Bryan Singer is being sued for allegedly forcing a 17-year-old boy to perform oral sex on him and then raping him, but Singer categorically denies the allegations.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Singer was on a yacht in the Seattle area back in 2003 ... a yacht owned by wealthy tech investor, Lester Waters. The suit claims it was a party populated by young gay males, including the plaintiff, Cesar Sanchez-Guzman.

The suit claims Singer offered to take Guzman, who was 17 at the time, on a tour of the yacht. When they got to one of the rooms, the suit alleges Singer thrust his body on Guzman, forced him to the floor, shoved Guzman's face against his crotch and demanded he perform oral sex.

The suit claims Singer pulled out his penis, smacked Guzman in the face with it and forced it into his mouth. Guzman claims he pleaded with Singer to stop, but he kept going ... causing him to choke.

The suit goes on to allege Singer then forcibly performed oral sex on Guzman. Guzman says he again pleaded with Singer to stop, to no avail. He says Singer then forcibly anally penetrated him, all while ignoring Guzman's pleas.

The suit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, claims Singer later approached Guzman, said he was a powerful Hollywood producer and he could help Guzman get into acting as long as he kept silent. Guzman says Singer warned him no one would believe him, and Singer could hire people to ruin his reputation.

Guzman says he suffered emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical and mental pain.

A rep for Singer tells TMZ, "The lawsuit was filed by the same lawyer who represented Michael Egan. Those claims were dismissed by Egan himself, and he later went to Federal prison for lying in a fraud case." The rep also says Herman was sued by other defendants related to the Egan case for malicious prosecution and he settled and acknowledged Egan's claims were provably false
