Major League Baseball Super Agent Arrested for Dom. Violence ... Allegedly Grabbed & Threw Wife Into Table

Exclusive

10:33 PM PT -- The attorney for Erica Sosnick, Jennifer King, tells us her client intends to drop the restraining order on Monday, saying ... "Upon further reflection and after a period of cooling off, Erica has decided it is in the best interest of the family, and the children in particular, to dismiss the restraining order."

MLB superagent Matt Sosnick -- whose agency reps huge stars like Pete Alonso -- was arrested for domestic violence for allegedly choking his wife in front of their young daughter ... and now she has a restraining order against him.

FYI, Sosnick is a big deal in Major League Baseball ... his powerful SCK Sports agency reps All-Stars like 2018 AL Cy Young winner Blake Snell, and Mets slugger Pete Alonso ... as well studs like Jay Bruce, Mitch Haniger and Blake Treinen.

Matt initially gained notoriety in the early 2000s for repping ex-Marlins star Dontrelle Willis, who actually got Sosnick's agency's logo tattooed on his arm during his pitching days.

But now, Matt's wife, Erica Sosnick, has filed for divorce from the 50-year-old -- alleging he roughed her up during an Oct. 8 incident.

We've confirmed Matt was arrested by the Danville PD in Northern California on Oct. 8 for domestic violence and misdemeanor child endangerment.

We've also learned Erica filed court docs requesting a temporary restraining order against Matt, which was granted almost immediately.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Erica claims Matt "grabbed my neck and squeezed" and told her, "I will destroy you." Erica then says he threw her across the room -- where she crashed into a table, all while their 9-year-old daughter watched.

Erica says their daughter called her former nanny and told the woman, "Daddy is yelling at mom. Mom is hurt."

Erica says in court docs she suffered injuries in the attack -- including bruising and swelling on her arm and red marks in the shape of handprints around her throat ... and she says things took an even worse turn the next day.

Erica claims on Oct. 9, she received text messages from Matt saying he was going to kill himself ... telling her, "I've already decided ...Saying goodbye to kids" and "My death is on you."

Erica's request for a temporary restraining order against Matt was granted -- and the next day, officials say Matt VIOLATED the order ... so he was arrested again on Oct. 9.

Now, Erica is asking the court for a more permanent restraining order. Records show she also got a move-out order against Matt, requiring him to leave the family residence. She's also filed divorce docs seeking to end their 11-year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Matt -- who was reportedly named 1 of the 5 most influential young people in baseball by Forbes in 2008 -- is currently one of the biggest agents in the MLB.

We've reached out to Matt and his agency for comment ... but so far, no word back yet.

Floyd Mayweather Claps Back at 50 Cent ... Over Gervonta Davis Diss

Exclusive
LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON
TMZSports.com

This might be the classiest clap back ever ... Floyd Mayweather subtly responding to 50 Cent after the rapper said Floyd's protege Gervonta Davis stole Mayweather's chick.

Earlier this week, 50 posted a video on social media saying he got a tip about someone who "took champ's bitch" -- and then identified the lady stealer as Davis.

CLOWNIN' FLOYD

"I don't know what the f**k," 50 said ... "Nelly took one of the bitches, Ray J took one of the bitches, now Gervonta done took one of the bitches. He bought the bitch a Bentley, Maybach, motherf**king condo and all that s**t. Now Gervonta got the bitch? N***a probably want to put a suicide note, man."

So, when we saw Floyd this week, we asked him about Gervonta -- and Mayweather showered him with praise, essentially saying Davis is like family.

"He's an unbelievable fighter and they can’t stop him," Floyd said.

"He’s the best at what he do. I’m behind him. I look at him like a son, ya know? I’ve been working with him for years now. And, the only thing we’re gonna do is keep racking those victories and beating the best they got out there."

Seem like a guy who thinks Gervonta stole his lady??? Not really ...

Oh, and 50 has since deleted the video.

Rosario Dawson Sued Ex-Employee Claims ... Her Fam Attacked Me Because I'm Transgender

Exclusive
TMZ

Rosario Dawson is being sued by a former employee -- a transgender man who alleges the actress and her family assaulted and disrespected him.

Dedrek Finley, who previously went by Deidre before coming out as transgender, says he moved to L.A. from NYC in 2017 at the request of Rosario's mother, Isabel. Dedrek says he knew the Dawson family for decades on the East Coast, but only came out to them after moving West.

In his lawsuit, Dedrek claims his coming out didn't sit well with the family. He claims Isabel, her husband Gregory and her brother Gustavo ... regularly referred to him by his old name and used female pronouns. Dedrek claims he complained to Rosario about this repeatedly, but she never did anything about it.

He claims Rosario also engaged in transphobic abuse because when Dedrek complained, Rosario allegedly said, "You're a grown woman." He claims he corrected her, but she replied, "Whatever."

Dedrek says he had been living in a separate home on Rosario's North Hollywood property. He claims he didn't have to pay rent, but agreed to do renovations on Rosario's house.

According to the suit, things went south, though, in April 2018, when his hours were drastically cut, and then he was informed he needed to move out.

Dedrek claims Isabel knocked on his door on April 28, and when he refused to discuss the issue with her ... she got violent. He alleges she threatened to kill his cat, and then ripped the screen off a window and pulled him outside through it. Dedrek claims she then started punching him and screamed, "You're not so much of a man now."

Mike Posner I Just Walked Across America!!! Ends Trek Right on Time

Mike Posner's putting 6 months worth of wear and tear on his feet behind him with a big dip in the Pacific, and ya can't say he didn't earn it ... after WALKING damn near 3,000 miles!!!

The EDM star completed the trek -- from New Jersey to California -- in 6 months, and by his count, he covered 2,851 miles over that period. Mike celebrated when he reached the sand on Venice Beach by jumping in the ocean.

CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP
TMZ.com

Not only was it not easy ... it could've killed him. You'll recall ... Mike was bitten by a baby rattlesnake back in August as he made his way across Colorado. After a few days in a hospital, he got back on the horse ... or his feet, albeit with the help of a walker.

Mike had been logging about 24 miles per day, but the snakebite slowed his pace for a while.

Still, he trekked on to complete the journey. He told us way back in April when he started that the deaths of his father and Avicii inspired him to make the trip ... and he hoped to inspire others to achieve their goals.

His personal goal was to reach Cali by October, so he nailed that. If anyone deserves a massage on the beach today ... it's you, Mike!!!

Forrest Gump would be proud.

Justin Trudeau Blackface Protesters on Campaign Trail ... 'We're Aladdin Too!'

Reuters

Justin Trudeau's blackface scandal is still a hot-button issue as the election for Canada's Prime Minister approaches ... as a couple of demonstrators were happy to remind him.

Trudeau took a road trip Friday in Ontario to meet with voters and hold babies -- including black babies -- as he campaigns for reelection, making stops in Barrie and Whitby.

He was greeted by a group of protesters, at one of his stops, decked out in blackface while holding up the old blackface photos of Trudeau that threw him into a storm of controversy.

The demonstrators also had signs reading, "We're Aladdin Too! Orillia Blackface Club Welcomes Trudeau."

As we've reported ... the Canadian PM has been on the apology tour since a 2001 yearbook photo surfaced showing him in blackface when he was 29 years old. He claimed he was dressed as Aladdin but, after the initial scandal, 2 other instances surfaced where Trudeau wore blackface as part of a costume.

FACING THE CRITICS
New Mom, Who Dis?

Justin's been trying to save face ever since, staging a boxing workout with a famous black fighter and appearing on a kids' show to tell a pair of black twin girls he was sorry.

Looks like he still has some work to do, and quickly ... the election's on Monday.

The Game Loses Appeal ... Owes Sex Assault Accuser $7 Million

Breaking News
TMZ.com

The Game just lost his appeal for a new trial in a civil suit in which he was accused of sexual assault ... so he's still on the hook for more than $7 million in damages.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the rapper was denied a new trial by a federal appeals court in Illinois.

As we've reported ... Game lost the lawsuit filed by Priscilla Rainey -- a former contestant on his 2015 reality show, "She's Got Game," who accused him of sexual assault -- and an Illinois court ordered him to pay her $7.13 mil.

Rainey claims Game was high on drugs and reached inside her dress, "forcefully reaching his hand inside her dress to rub her bare vagina and buttocks." Game called her "a thirsty Gatorade mascot of a transvestite."

Game appealed the initial ruling, but on Thursday the appeals court affirmed the lower court's ruling, slamming Game for blowing off the trial by not showing up and calling his conduct towards Rainey "deeply reprehensible."

We reached to Game's camp for comment ... so far, no word back.

Nick Young I Bricked My Shot With Rihanna ... While Dating Iggy

Breaking News
TMZ.com

Nick Young and Rihanna???

It almost happened ... with the NBA star saying he shot his shot at the superstar after she watched him ball out at a Lakers game, but there was one thing holding him back ... Iggy Azalea.

It all went down around 2014, according to Swaggy (who told the story on the "Certified Buckets" podcast) ... saying he was motivated to play outta his mind after he saw RiRi sitting courtside at Staples Center.

"I had a good game, so [the reporters] asked me why ... and I said, you know, Rihanna was there."

Young says the shout-out got a reaction from Rihanna -- who actually hit him up afterward, but he didn't follow through because there was already another famous lady in the picture.

"She hit me back, but I couldn't go full throttle with it because I was like, in the beginning stages of my relationship with [Iggy]."

The hosts of the podcasts nearly lost their minds over Nick's revelation -- with Sarunas J Jackson saying straight-up, "WRONG ONE MAN!"

"You coulda been King of Barbados! You could have been first man of Barbados right now!"

Don't worry, Nick defended Iggy's honor -- "I think I did pretty good, though. It worked out for a little bit."

Of course, Nick and Iggy dated for years and even got engaged ... but things fell apart after Nick admitted messing around on Iggy on cell phone footage posted by then-teammate D'Angelo Russell ('memba that?!?).

Everyone moved on since then ... Rihanna's got a Saudi billionaire, Iggy hooked up with Playboi Carti and Nick's back with his longtime girlfriend (and mother of his children), Keonna Green.

Kanye West Can't Own 'Sunday Service' ... Trademark Gods Say So

Breaking News
TMZ.com

Kanye West's crusade to corner the market for his Sunday Service gear just got shot down by the trademark gods ... of the U.S., anyway.

Ye applied for exclusive ownership of the mark, "Sunday Service," to slap it on clothing, dresses, footwear, headwear, jackets, loungewear, scarves, shirts, socks and tops. But, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office shut him down because, basically ... someone's already working that corner!!!

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, someone else already registered the name -- and therefore Kanye using it would likely cause confusion in the marketplace.

kanyewest.com

We broke the story ... Kanye applied for the trademark in July. He'd started selling gear even before that, on Easter Sunday, to coincide with his performance at Coachella. He was hawking hoodies for $165 and $225 a pop and socks for $50.

Since then, his Sunday Service events have become a weekly attraction all over the country -- from Wyoming to Queens, NY -- attracting big crowds and celebs.

The docs say Kanye can still choose to fight the decision ... but it seems like he'd be throwing up a prayer.

Fugees' Pras Gina Rodriguez Gets N-Word Pass But Only If ...

Exclusive
CULTURED INDIVIDUALS ONLY
TMZ.com

Fugees rapper Pras says when it comes to singing the n-word ... Gina Rodriguez has to earn a pass. Question is ... has she?

Pras hopped on "TMZ Live" Friday and let it be known that only certain Latin people who have contributed to the culture and those deeply embedded in the black community are given an honorary pass to say the word while singing a song.

As far as Gina's concerned ... Pras says he knows she's Latina but doesn't know her background well enough to speak on whether to issue her an honorary pass or not.

READY OR NOT

As we reported ... Gina got a lot of heat earlier this week for saying "n***a" while singing Lauryn Hill's verse on the Fugees' 1996 hit, "Ready or Not."

"Love & Hip Hop Miami" star Amara La Negra and Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman say Gina's earned the green light ... but seems the debate rages on.

BTW ... Pras says there's a certain group of folks who definitely can NOT sing along to the n-word. The rapper also delivers a stern warning. Watch.

Stan Lee Entertainment Sues Stan's Daughter ... You Must Defend the Family Name!!!

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty

5:23 PM PT -- JC Lee and Shirrel Rhoades -- the Prez of Stan Lee Entertainment -- tell TMZ, "We are working together to remedy all the issues created by Stan Lee's past relationship with Pow! Entertainment."

They say, "We share the same commitment to create a legacy befitting one of the greatest story tellers and character creators of all time- a legacy Stan Lee earned ... and deserves." JC and Shirrel make it clear they want to distance themselves from POW! and keep Stan's legacy intact.

The company Stan Lee founded is now battling Stan Lee's daughter and heir for control over his extremely valuable name, likeness and ideas.

Weird as it might sound ... Stan Lee Entertainment is suing Joan Celia Lee, claiming she's trying to cash in on her dad when she has no legal right to do so -- even though she's the sole heir to his fortune.

According to docs, the company Stan founded in 1998 -- as an animation publishing and entertainment company -- was assigned rights to his name, likeness, ideas, characters, stories, logos, etc. Basically, if Stan thought it ... SLE owns it ... according to the company.

However, SLE claims since the big cheese died in 2018, JC's failed to protect SLE's legal hold on its right to Stan's intellectual property. Specifically, in the suit, SLE calls out POW! Entertainment for interloping ... trying to "loot SLE's intellectual property."

SLE is looking for JC to play Captain America or Iron Man, and save the day. In its suit, the company says as trustee for the Lee Family Survivor's Trust ... JC has a "duty to vindicate the rights" of SLE against villains like POW!

Stan's co. wants the court to force JC to hold up her end of the bargain, and defend SLE against all evildoers -- or as the lawsuit puts it ... POW! and other entities trying to jack Stan's valuable ideas.

It also wants a declaration that SLE is the rightful owner of Stan's creations.
