Golden State Warriors Attack Video Shows Draymond Green Violently Punch Jordan Poole

DECKED BY DRAYMOND
UPDATE

10:52 AM PT -- The San Francisco Police Dept. tells TMZ Sports ... it is not investigating the incident and had no involvement in the matter.

Shocking video shows Draymond Green violently attacking Jordan Poole, viciously punching him to the ground right in the middle of a team practice ... video obtained by TMZ Sports.

Green and Poole clearly have beef ... you see them trash-talking each other, and then it turns physical. Green walks up to Poole and gets in his face. Poole pushes Green away with 2 hands to the chest. Green, who is 6'6" and 230 lbs, responds with a vicious right cross to the face ... so ferocious, it knocks Poole to the ground and it may have knocked him out cold.

Green then stands over Poole as teammates and coaches rush in to pull him away. It seems Poole was OK, because he continued practice, putting up shots on the court.

Warriors GM Bob Myers seemed to minimize the incident later, saying, "These things happen. Nobody likes it. We don't condone it, but it happens." He goes on to say, "Draymond apologized to the team. Jordan was there in the room ... as far as any suspension, punishment, fine, we will handle that internally."

"ABSOLUTE BS"
Golden State Warriors

As for the reason behind the fight, Stephen Curry denied a report claiming a change in Poole's attitude amid contract negotiations led to it ... calling it "absolute BS."

Beyoncé Fires Back At Right Said Fred ... I Got Permission For Sample

Beyoncé is calling out music duo Right Said Fred for accusing her of sampling their biggest hit without permission ... she says it's BS and the group was paid handsomely for the song.

Here's the deal ... Right Said Fred ripped Beyoncé as "arrogant" for allegedly sampling their hit "I'm Too Sexy" on her new song "Alien Superstar" without asking or paying them in an interview with The Sun.

Now Beyoncé's camp is firing back, telling TMZ the accusations from Right Said Fred are erroneous and totally false.

Beyoncé's team says not only did she get permission to use the song, Right Said Fred spoke publicly of their gratitude for being on her "Renaissance" album and they were paid a "substantial portion."

Queen B says she has the receipts ... Beyoncé says she asked Right Said Fred's publisher for permission to sample the song composition on May 11, with the publisher approving the use on June 15, prompting an August payment to RSF.

Right Said Fred also claimed they didn't have a co-writer credit on Beyoncé's track ... but her team says that's just not true either. Instead, Beyonce says RSF writers own more than any other writer on "Alien Superstar" and have a co-writer credit.

Beyoncé must be pissed over the accusations ... she typically remains silent in these cases, so this is a rare rebuttal.

Home Depot We Didn't Donate to Herschel Walker ... As Calls for Boycott Grow

The internet is up in arms about Home Depot after reports it allegedly donated serious dough to Herschel Walker's U.S. Senate campaign -- and while the company tells us it didn't happen, it's also clarifying where the wires got crossed.

A rep for Home Depot tells TMZ the claims just aren't true ... specifying, "Home Depot's PAC (political action committee) hasn't donated to Walker's or (Raphael) Warnock's campaigns."

We're told the connection to the company likely came out because Home Depot's co-founder, Bernie Marcus, did donate to Walker's campaign. The company rep points out Marcus left the company more than 2 decades ago, adding "his views do not represent the company."

People online have been calling for a boycott of Home Depot following the reports claiming the company donated more than $1 million to Walker's campaign.

The rep says Home Depot is "working on correcting misinformation online now."

DRAGGING DAD

As we reported, the ex-NFL star and Senate candidate has been getting dragged over his "pro-life" beliefs ... in light of a woman coming forward and insisting Walker got her pregnant and paid for her to have an abortion in 2009.

Walker's conservative son, Christian, posted a video shortly after his dad denied the abortion claim ... accusing his father of, among other things, threatening to kill him and his family in the past.

Kanye West Rejects Diddy's Love... 'F*** You, I'm Selling These WLM Tees!!!'

Diddy's attempts of reasoning with Kanye West over the "White Lives Matter" T-shirt controversy are falling on deaf ears ... with Ye dropping f-bombs while tripling down on putting the controversial gear on the market.

On Friday, Kanye posted an iMessage exchange between him and Puff -- making it crystal clear that he didn't approve of Diddy's 'Breakfast Club' interview.

According to Ye's perspective, Diddy is trying to put a wedge in between his earnings and is under the impression that Jewish leaders sent the Bad Boy Records rapper to silence his messages.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

When Diddy attempted to meet up in person, Ye desecrated his character ... calling Puff a federal agent before telling him he accepts the future apology when he comes to his senses and supports 'WLM.'

Kanye has been steadfast in his cause all week with zero care about who gets bulldozed along the way.

During one of the recent rants, he skewered Offset for liking posts that slammed 'WLM' and also threatened A$AP Rocky and Rihanna's romance by claiming the Harlem rap star cheated with fashion designer Yoon Ahn.

Neither artist has responded to Ye, but Yoon vehemently denied the claims, labeling him a false prophet while A$AP Mob member Nast told Kanye to pipe down.

Ye set things off on Monday at his Paris Fashion Show ... calling Black Lives Matter a "sham" while relishing in support from Candace Owens and Antonio Brown.

He recently sat down with FOX's Tucker Carlson to explain his mission ... where he argued attacks on Lizzo's weight signified early stages of genocide on Black people. Yep, you read that right.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle We Know Jack About Music!!! Huggin' and Dancin' at Jack Johnson Concert

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are softies for soft rock ... hitting up a Jack Johnson concert!

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex watched Jack do his thing Wednesday night at the Santa Barbara Bowl, an outdoor venue that was packed. They weren't exactly just part of the crowd ... they watched the show from a special section cordoned off from the masses, with 10 other folks.

They cut loose during the show, dancing, swaying to the music and clearly familiar with Jack's hits. It was clearly date night ... Harry and Meghan were standing as he wrapped his arm around her waist. They were also friendly with the small group in their section ... chatting them up.

ROCKIN' WITH ROYALTY
TMZ.com

Meghan and Harry arrived separately ... she got there around 8 PM and Harry pulled up about an hour later.

Of course, their night out comes weeks after Harry and Meghan went to the U.K. to attend all the Queen's funeral events, after she died last month.

It's been a tough few weeks for H&M with the Queen's death ... so the night was clearly a much-needed relief.

Ray J Concerning Posts From High Ledge ... 'I Would Jump Off And Die Tonight'

Ray J uploaded a slew of worrying posts to his social media Thursday night ... ones where he heavily contemplated taking his own life, and causing serious alarm.

SCARY SNAPS

Fans briefly saw his concerning messages on his Instagram page ... with video of what looks to be him sitting high above the ground.

One caption reads, "If it wasn't 4 my Kidz I would jump off and die tonight."

Another upload shows his feet dangling off the side of a ledge, showing the ground below -- that caption says, "SHOULD I JUST JUMP off and end it rit. Now!!! ????"

He took to his IG story, too ... writing, "trying to figure it out -- maybe this life was a illusion--" He continued, "-- maybe the next life was my real reality." His concerning posts have since been taken down, but fans online have been sharing their love and support for Ray ever since.

There is good news ... we spoke to a source close to Ray who told us he's been with Princess Love. We're told he was drinking and put the posts up ... the source says Ray was not hospitalized and was "messing around."

If you or someone you know is thinking of suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988.

Jake Paul I'll Give Draymond $10 Million To Box ... After Practice Punch

Draymond Green proved he can throw a mean punch ... and Jake Paul's already drooling over the Warriors star's potential -- saying he'd pay $10 MILLION to get the 4-time champ in the boxing ring ASAP.

TMZ Sports obtained video of 32-year-old Green knocking teammate Jordan Poole to the ground after a heated back-and-forth during practice on Wednesday.

DECKED BY DRAYMOND

Paul clearly saw the footage ... and on Friday, he said he'd pay top dollar to see 6'6", 230 lb. Green to pick up a new sport.

"Gotta get Draymond Green in the boxing ring," the Problem Child tweeted ... adding he already has an idea for who his opponent could be.

"Draymond Green vs Deron Williams. Who wins?"

Of course, Deron is a former NBAer-turned-boxer ... and he fought NFL star Frank Gore on one of Jake's undercards in the past -- so the opponent would make sense if Green was actually interested.

As for the payday, Jake is ready to write a FAT check -- "Draymond I got $10 million for you to get in the ring on the next Most Valuable Promotions pay per view. Who you want?"

For what it's worth, while Jake says Draymond did his thing against Poole, he makes it clear he thinks he'd finish Green off in the first round if they were to ever fight.

Coolio will remain near and dear to his children's hearts -- and not just figuratively -- because they're designing jewelry to keep his ashes close.

According to the rapper's death certificate, obtained by TMZ, Coolio's body will be cremated ... and, we're told that's prompting his 7 kids to come up with the idea for some special bling.

Coolio's rep tells TMZ ... each of his children will get a pendant to hold the ashes, along with a necklace.

A few other close family members will get them as well.

We're told each of his sons and daughters will get to pick customized inscriptions for their jewelry.

The rest of Coolio's ashes will go into an urn once all the necklaces are distributed.

Coolio's always loved being a dad, according to Vanilla Ice -- who got pretty emotional when he told us how much Coolio always had family on his mind ... even in his final days.

Safe to say Coolio would be thrilled with the way his brood is planning to honor him.

President Biden Putin Could Start Nuclear 'Armageddon' After Setbacks In Ukraine

President Biden put the nation on red alert Thursday, announcing nuclear "Armageddon" is a real possibility given Russia's recent setbacks in its 8-month war in Ukraine.

At a Democratic fundraiser hosted by James Murdoch, Biden characterized Russian Czar Vladimir Putin as "a guy I know fairly well" -- and added, Putin was "not joking when he talks about the use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons."

Biden went on to say, "We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis." He also implied the threat from Putin is tangible "because his military is -- you might say -- significantly underperforming."

The Cuban Missile Crisis was a 13-day showdown in 1962 born out of the Soviet Union's deployment of nuclear weapons in Cuba ... prompting the Kennedy administration to launch a naval blockade of the island.

As far as the public knows, it remains the closest the U.S ever came to a nuclear war.

Biden says he's still "trying to figure" out Putin's "off-ramp" in Ukraine. Where does he find a way out?" Biden asked. "Where does he find himself in a position that he does not not only lose face but lose significant power within Russia?"

Despite Biden's chilling warning, U.S. officials have NOT seen Russia change its nuclear posture to launch an imminent attack.

Small victory ... for now.

THREATENED FOR MY VIEWS
Fox News

Sharon Osbourne We Gave $900K to Black Lives Matter ... Ye's Right About 'Scam'

I WANT A REFUND
TMZ.com

Sharon Osbourne doesn't totally understand the controversy with Kanye West and his "White Lives Matter" shirt ... but she agrees with his view on BLM being a "scam."

We got Sharon shopping at YSL on Rodeo Drive in Bev Hills and asked her about Kanye's controversial shirt ... and she told our photog all lives matter.

While Sharon admits she's not completely up to speed on all the intricacies of the debate around Kanye's fashion statement, she does have a strong opinion on BLM.

Sharon perked right up when we told her Kanye ripped BLM for being "a scam."

Ozzy's wife says the couple gave $900,000 to BLM -- presumably in 2020 -- and told us she would like her money back and wishes Kanye spoke out before they cut the check.

Sharon says Kanye shouldn't be canceled over the "White Lives Matter" shirt ... telling folks to simply ignore Ye if they don't like what he's doing.

We also asked Sharon about Adidas saying its relationship with Kanye is "under review" ... and she's got a prediction for how that review will shake out in the end.

Antonio Brown Man Sues NFL Star ... You Ripped Me Off On A Fake Richard Mille Watch!!!

Antonio Brown is being dragged to court yet again ... this time, a man in Florida claims the wideout sold him a bogus Richard Mille watch for $160K, fully knowing it was a phony worth far less.

Ryan Kane filed a lawsuit against Brown over it all in Broward County earlier this week ... alleging the NFL star ripped him off on the sale back on July 27.

In the suit, obtained by TMZ Sports, Kane says Brown assured him the watch -- allegedly an RM 011 model -- was real ... and said it had a value "in excess of $400,000."

Kane says he bought it based on Brown's claims -- wiring the $160,000 to Brown's company -- but he learned a few weeks later the thing was a fake.

Kane says in the suit that he took it to a watch appraiser to have it authenticated and appraised for insurance purposes -- but claims the guy delivered him some bad news while he was there ... it was worth only a couple hundred bucks.

Kane says after he asked around, he learned that Brown had bought the fake watch -- and three others like it -- from a dealer in Dubai earlier this year for less than $500 apiece.

Kane is suing Brown for fraud and more ... seeking to get his money back plus interest.

Of course, this couldn't be further from the first time that Brown has been hauled into court ... over the last few years, a personal trainer, a chef and others have filed lawsuits against him.

Brown is currently an NFL free agent -- though his rap career has taken off in recent months.

Guess Who This Bashful Girl Turned Into!

She became even closer to megastardom when she busted out her pipes at the MTV Video Music Awards and sang with The Chainsmokers.

"Stay and play that Blink-182 song, That we beat to death in Tucson, okay!"

Can you guess who she is?

Kanye West Attacks On Lizzo's Weight Loss ... 'Genocide of Black Race'

THEY'RE TRYING TO TAKE US OUT
Fox News

Kanye West thinks there's an evil plan behind the attacks on Lizzo's weight ... he says it's a way to kill Black people.

Ye says he notices whenever Lizzo, who works with his trainer, posts on social media about losing weight she is immediately attacked by bot accounts.

The reasoning ... Kanye says it's because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal for Black people, when it's actually unhealthy.

Kanye made the claims in his interview with FNC's Tucker Carlson, saying it's clinically unhealthy to promote an overweight lifestyle and going a step further by calling anyone who does so "demonic."

Tucker asked Kanye why he thinks the media wants to promote unhealthiness among Black people ... and Ye didn't hold back.

Kanye's response ... "It's a genocide of the Black race."
