Rodney Peete Sued Super Bowl Ticket Screw Job?!

Breaking News

Ex-NFL star Rodney Peete is accused of pulling a fast one on a Super Bowl ticket broker -- allegedly squirming his way out of paying for VERY expensive seats ... and now the broker wants his cash!

The 53-year-old and his famous wife Holly Robinson Peete are being sued by Barry's Tickets -- a pretty famous business which sells tickets to high-profile events.

Barry's claims Rodney hit 'em up in January 2019 looking for 8 tickets to Super Bowl LIII in ATL to watch Tom Brady and the Patriots take on the L.A. Rams.

Barry's claims they offered Peete a discount -- they'd charge him $11,500 per ticket if he paid before Feb. 3 ... and the price would rise to $12,500 if he paid after.

Rodney agreed, according to the lawsuit -- but only wired $46,000 to Barry's.

Barry's says they gave Rodney the tickets under the assumption he'd deliver the second half of the money -- but he NEVER paid.

In fact, Barry's says Rodney strung them along for days until finally ghosting them in mid-February.

Now, Barry's demanding $54,000 for the tickets plus interest plus legal fees.

By the way, Rodney had a pretty long NFL career -- he played from 1989 to 2004 -- but never really signed a massive contract.

TMZSports.com

Same last name ... but NO love between Logan Paul and "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul -- with Logan telling TMZ Sports he would beat Aaron's ass if they ever came face-to-face.

Now, Logan is firing back ... calling Aaron an "Internet bully" -- and warning the actor that if he REALLY wants a piece, he'll end up getting hurt.

Of course, Logan is training for a real boxing match against video game/YouTube superstar KSI next month in England ... and Logan tells us it's going to be one of the biggest pop culture events of the year.

Breaking News
HEATED EXCHANGE
@tarabrown91

Klay Thompson was PISSED after his friend got fouled hard in a pickup game in China -- with the NBA star cussing out one of the players and nearly coming to blows.

What set Klay off was when Klay's pal drove to the hoop and an opposing player took out his legs in midair -- causing the guys to come crashing down HARD on the floor.

Klay's pal was rightfully furious -- and that's when Thompson stormed onto the court to get in the other dude's face.

"Come on, man. That's bullsh*t," Thompson says.

"If you want to fight him, then fight his ass -- don't undercut him. F*ckin' bullsh*t. That's bullsh*t, man. Bullsh*t. You don't do that bullsh*t."

"That's how you f*ckin' ruin somebody's career, god damnit. You don't do that. You don't do that sh*t."

Cooler heads prevailed, and Thompson left the court ... but #ChinaKlay's quickly taking on a whole new meaning this summer.

Anna Gunn Wannabe Burglar Scared Away After Smashing Window

EXCLUSIVE

Anna Gunn's home alarm system came through in a big way by alerting her that a potential thief was lurking outside, and Anna was able to scare the perp off ... TMZ has learned.

As we've reported ... a crime wave of celeb burglaries has hit the Valley the past several months, but fortunately for Gunn the thieves left empty-handed this time.

She must have a security system like Joe Jonas.

Finally, a happy ending for Bambi. Not so much for RJ.

Bryan Cranston Resurrects Walter White at Electronic Music Festival

Bryan Cranston didn't just show up to the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this weekend ... he brought Walter White along for the ride.

Cranston crashed the EDM festival and introduced the band Above & Beyond ... who just happened to have a song called "Walter White."

The "Breaking Bad" star growled out a few lines before ferociously dancing onstage with the group ... which he mildly regretted the next day. He wrote, "Leaving EDC—Vegas right now. Pulled an all-nighter. Old, my ass...Old, my head. Old, my feet...Happy Father's Day!"

Lavell Crawford From Blue Meth to White Belt in Jiujitsu

EXCLUSIVE

"Breaking Bad" is over, so Lavell Crawford has moved onto breaking blocks ... he's taken up jiujitsu.

Crawford has been training at the Gracie Barra gym in Burbank, CA where the guy best known for playing Huell recently earned a stripe for his white belt. Hey, gotta start somewhere!

The gym's owner -- Alberto Crane (standing next to Crawford in the photo above) -- tells TMZ Sports he's been impressed with Crawford so far ... saying most guys Crawford's size can't do what he does.

Crane says Crawford, who is also a standup comedian, has been keeping things light at the gym, telling us, "He is so much fun to work with. He cracks a ton of jokes, he's a real funny guy and a pleasure to have around."

As for getting his first stripe, Crane says Crawford could not have been more excited: "He was pumped up. He said he couldn't wait to brag to his son about his first stripe."

'Breaking Bad' Star Bob Odenkirk You Want A Real Estate Lesson? Better Call Saul

Bob Odenkirk made a career playing a guy who protected drug kingpins and their money on "Breaking Bad" ... and now he's ready to cash in legitimately in real life.

The actor who played Walter White's shady lawyer Saul Goodman on BB just listed his home for $2.5 million ... not bad, because he bought it in '98 for $675K.

The single-level house is in the same exclusive Oaks area of Los Feliz -- home to celebs like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Zac Efron, Jon Hamm, Alexander Skarsgard and Naya Rivera.

It vaguely resembles the Heisenberg's digs from the outside.

And one more celeb connection. Bob listed the house with real estate guru Sharona Alperin -- she's the inspiration for "My Sharona."

Bryan Cranston Neighbors Are the Ones Who Knock To Say Congrats on Emmy

Bryan Cranston is beloved by all his neighbors for playing a horrifying villain, and they let him know it by decorating the front of his house after his Emmy win.

After Bryan won for Best Actor ... the "Breaking Bad" star returned home to find balloons tied to his fencing and a handwritten note congratulating him.

But the thing is ... the note looks like it was written by neighborhood kids -- and we all know ... "Breaking Bad" is NOT fun family viewing.

Maybe they're just "Malcolm in the Middle" fans.

Anna Gunn Ex-Hubby Wants a Piece of Her 'Breaking Bad' Money

EXCLUSIVE

Anna Gunn's estranged husband is so into the last season of "Breaking Bad" -- he wants a piece of it.

Gunn's husband -- Alastair Duncan -- filed for divorce in 2008 and the marriage officially ended the next year. The former couple has 2 kids but Duncan got child support for a short time after the divorce, but then agreed Anna could stop paying.

Things changed during the final season of the show, when Anna raked in more than $1 million ... and the lion's share -- $890,858.83 --- was from "Breaking Bad." By contrast, he only makes $10K a month as a realtor/actor.

Duncan now says financial circumstances have so significantly changed ... it's only fair for him to get child support again. He notes Anna has a new show on Fox -- "Gracepoint" -- and other projects including an off-Broadway show.

By the way ... of the million bucks she made last year ... she paid $92K to her agent, $51K to her business manager, $58K to her personal manager and $31K to her publicist.

Welcome to Hollywood.

If you want to make "Walking Dead" star Andrew Lincoln spill his show's secrets, there is one way to do it … threaten to ruin "Breaking Bad" for him.

Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman Good Riddance, Aaron Paul ... Go Be a Raiders Fan!

EXCLUSIVE

Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman has some advice for "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul -- now that you're off the Denver bandwagon ... go be a Raiders fan!

We spoke to Hillman to find out how he felt about Paul pulling a George Clooney on the Broncos -- ending his Super Bowl love affair with the team and ignoring them completely.

But the second year running back isn't crying into his Haagan-Daaz ... telling us, "To each his own, I’ll probably go see 'Need For Speed' anyway."

Then came the shot -- "But if he don’t like us, he can always go be a Raiders fan."

Ouch.

Aaron Paul: Sorry Denver ... I'm OFF the Broncos Bandwagon

EXCLUSIVE

Bad news for Broncos fans ... "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul has given up on your team -- just months after he hopped on the bandwagon in the first place.

Aaron -- nicest guy ever btw -- was leaving Gallagher's Steakhouse in NYC last night when we started asking him about all the moves Denver's been making in the past few days.

That's when Aaron -- who proudly rooted for Peyton & the Broncos when he sat behind the bench at the Super Bowl -- made it clear his days of supporting the blue and orange are OVER!

In fairness to Aaron, he was only really a Broncos fan for 1 day to begin with ... but after that Super Bowl performance, we're guessing he's not the only bandwagoner to jump ship.
