Brother Nature Confronts Attackers Pre-Beatdown ... In New Surveillance Vid

Exclusive
OH, BROTHER...
TMZ.com

Brother Nature sure seemed ready to fight -- at least that's how the moments leading up to his dual-threat beatdown appear to have unfolded on surveillance footage.

TMZ got a hold of surveillance video taken at the Miami-based sandwich shop where BN was later pummeled twice over ... once in the parking lot, and again inside the restaurant. In this new footage, you can see Brother Nature initially confronting his two attackers.

As we reported ... Brother Nature was allegedly upset that he couldn't be served at his table, and tried griping about it to the shop's staff. We're told he then got in the face of one of his attackers -- who was supposedly filming him -- and you can see that interaction here.

Brother Nature is asked to leave by someone who works there, but not before some words are exchanged between him and these 2 guys who were also more than willing to brawl.

THE BRUTAL ATTACK
TMZ.com

Fast-forward to the parking lot stomp-out ... which then spilled back into the eatery, where we're told BN stormed back in and allegedly socked somebody. It appears you can see that here in the surveillance video as well ... Brother Nature comes in and rushes the slimmer dude, seemingly trying to hit him, before his buddy scurries over and they team up.

The rest is pretty much history -- Brother Nature got walloped by the two dudes ... and by the time cops showed up, everybody had gone their separate ways.

We've reached out to BN to get his side of the story ... so far, no word back.

Brother Nature Stomped Out!!! Allegedly Picked Fight

Exclusive Details
THE BRUTAL ATTACK
TMZ.com

3:37 PM PT -- We just found more about what led up to Brother Nature's ass-whoopin' -- and by most accounts ... it sounds like he might've possibly instigated things.

Multiple eyewitnesses on the scene tell TMZ ... BN was sitting at a table inside the sandwich shop and demanding to be served by a waiter, although the staff had stopped serving at that point. We're told everyone who wanted food had to order at the counter.

AFTER THE MAYHEM
TMZ.com

Well, apparently ... Brother Nature wasn't too happy with that, according to the people we spoke with. He allegedly got up and confronted the staff, going on to ramble about his celebrity status ... the "you don't know who I am?" treatment, we're told.

The witnesses say a guy was filming Brother Nature from the counter, which BN didn't like either. Eventually, we're told Brother Nature was asked to leave by the manager ... and once outside, our sources say BN challenged the cameraman to a fight.

It was all downhill from there ... the guy seen on video stepped out and handled BN in the lot, came back inside and tried letting it be. BUT, we're told BN came back inside and wanted more ... allegedly hitting one of the attacker's acquaintances, seemingly for no reason.

That's when we're told the indoor stomp out began, with the attacker and at least one of his friends thrashing BN (again). So, it went ... lot beatdown, then restaurant beatdown. After that, we're told everyone went their separate ways before cops arrived at the scene.

We've tried reaching out to Brother Nature to get his side of things ... so far, no word back.

10:11 AM PT -- Brother Nature just posted a vid where he doesn't say anything about the fight, but he is rocking an ice pack on his face for the pretty obvious fat lip he got.

STARTING TO RECOVER

Brother Nature -- the IG influencer famous for vids with wild animals -- had someone wild out on him early Saturday morning ... punching, kicking and stomping him into a daze.

The beatdown happened in a Miami sandwich shop shortly before 6 AM, and it was all captured on video. It's still unclear what prompted the attack, but Brother Nature ended up down on his knees while the assailant teed off on his head.

The crazy part is there were several bystanders in the restaurant who refused to intervene -- even after Brother Nature was clearly down and out of it. Finally, one guy -- possibly a restaurant staffer -- stepped in and tried to break it up.

However, the unknown attacker continued dousing BN with water or soda ... and the viciousness continued outside in the parking lot. Video shows the attacker stomping on Brother Nature's head.

BEFORE THE BEATDOWN

A video, apparently shot moments before the fight, shows Brother Nature -- whose real name is Kelvin Pena -- attempting to order food while at least one other patron is mocking him.

TMZ has confirmed Miami PD got a call around 5:45 AM for a disturbance at the restaurant, and officers responded, but no one was arrested -- everyone involved had already left.

Brother Nature has 2.7 million Instagram followers, and was featured in the Netflix documentary, "Inst@famous."

Jason Derulo I Was Only Semi-Aroused on IG ... AND Fresh Out the Pool!!!

Exclusive
QUICK ANATOMY LESSON
TMZ.com

Jason Derulo says he's a victim of a social media double standard -- and he informed us about this while totally gloating about the size of his junk. Well played, JD.

We ran into the singer Wednesday hours after Instagram deleted his famous underwear pic by a pool in Bali -- the very definition of living large. IG's explanation was that Jason was showing off "aroused genitalia" with the giant bulge in his briefs.

Jason's throwing cold water on that theory though ... telling he wasn't all THAT aroused in the photo, calling it more of a "semi" sitch. He says basic knowledge of the male anatomy supports his claim. Buckle up for Prof. Derulo's lesson, class.

Now, as for any potential shrinkage -- he was emerging from a pool, after all -- Jason admits that was NOT an issue.

Yeah, as they say in ancient Rome ... res ipsa loquitur. The thing speaks for itself.

Watch the clip ... there is a serious point Jason wants to get across -- he believes IG is discriminating against his natural blessings. He's demanding equality, and he's ready to chat with Facebook and Instagram about it.

We wouldn't suggest a poolside meeting. Unless ...

Jason Derulo IG Ain't Having 'Anaconda' Pic ... No 'Aroused Genitalia'!!!

Jason Derulo's got a problem most men would die for ... his penis is too big to post underwear pics on social media.

Jason just had his recent Instagram shot flaunting his manhood taken down for violating the platform's community guidelines on nudity and sexual activity ... and a Facebook spokesperson tells TMZ Jason's post got the heave-ho because it featured "aroused genitalia."

Glad we got to the bottom of that!!!

DOUBLE STANDARDS

Jason's not taking the removal too kindly ... he says it's a double standard because women flaunt their bodies all over the 'gram. He points out he's covering his junk with underwear and says it's a clear example of discrimination because he can't help his size.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Dude may have a point ... we did some snooping and found a pic of The Game showing off his endowment in some nut huggers, and it's yet to be removed after over a year. Sorry bud, guess you ain't on Jason's level!!!

Anyway, the next time Jason feels in the mood to show off his family jewels ... he can safely share it on Twitter.

Eva Marcille's Baby Daddy Kevin McCall's Escalator Fight Video ... Suggests He's the Victim

THE TAKEDOWN

'RHOA' star Eva Marcille's baby daddy just revealed a key piece of evidence from his latest arrest -- video of his scuffle with a cop down an escalator.

Kevin McCall posted the courthouse surveillance footage on his Instagram, which is of him talking to the officer ... then cuts to a shot of the cop chasing McCall down an escalator in an effort to detain him.

The officer then appears to bodyslam McCall before another cop jumps in to help.

I'M A TARGET
TMZ.com

We broke the story ... Kevin says he was injured in the scuffle and plans to sue, and believes he was targeted simply because he's black. According to his latest post, he believes the video supports his theory. He captioned it ... "Hands Up...Don't shoot #thetruthuntold"

THE INCITING INCIDENT

McCall's own Instagram Live video from before the altercation shows what led up to the tussle -- the courthouse officer tells him he needs to stop recording video on his phone ... but he refuses, calls him a b*tch and challenges him to fight.

You may recall ... Kevin was in court to challenge Eva for custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Marley Rae. Instead, he ended up in jail and booked on 5 charges -- 4 misdemeanors and one felony count of criminal damage to property in the 2nd degree.

TBD if the escalator footage helps exonerate him.

Princess Love I Don't Wanna Be Married To Ray J!!! Sounds Off After Fight

I WANT A DIVORCE

Princess Love says she's over being married to Ray J ... and she's preparing to be a single mother of two.

Ray J's wife opened up about their recent drama in a lengthy social media rant, saying she doesn't want to be married anymore and strongly suggesting their relationship is hurtling towards a divorce.

As we reported ... Ray J and Princess Love got into a blowout fight in Vegas, and she accused him of leaving her "stranded" after he got his own hotel room to give her some space. Ray J broke his silence and slipped in an apology, but captioned his video, "Love lost this time" with a broken heart emoji.

FAMILY MATTERS

Now, Princess says she's still alone in Vegas with their daughter, Melody, and she doesn't feel comfortable driving back to Los Angeles because she's 8 1/2 months pregnant. Whenever she makes it home, Princess says she's gotta get her mind right before giving birth, because Ray J could leave her at any moment.

Princess says Ray J often threatens her with divorce when they argue, and she ended her rant with a pretty ominous description, "It's a divorce party, y'all."

Bella Hadid Makes Peace with Selena Gomez After Suspicious IG Delete

Exclusive
Getty Composite

Bella Hadid raised eyebrows after deleting a post on which Selena Gomez had made an innocent enough comment -- but we've learned fans/social media blew this one way out of proportion. Shocker.

Sources connected to the supermodel tell TMZ ... Bella actually went out of her way to reach out to Selena this weekend to squash any potential beef. We say potential, because the Internet (yes, EVERYONE on the web) thought Bella had shaded the singer. 'Memba ... they're both exes of The Weeknd.

You see, what had happened was ... Bella posted this pic of herself, and Selena commented, "Stunning." Harmless, right? Well, Bella later deleted that post, but fans screen grabbed, reposted and insinuated Bella first ignored Selena (by not following her back) ... and then deleted the post out of spite.

Selena caught wind of this and commented on the fan page that reposted ... "That sucks," adding a sad face emoji for good measure.

We'll cut to the chase here -- the drama's over. Our sources say the former friends-turned-foes had a chat after the big deletion. We're told Bella told Selena it was never about taking a shot, the model simply deleted because she didn't like the pic.

She also said there are no hard feelings over The Weeknd. Selena briefly dated him in between his multiple rounds of dating Bella ... once upon a time.

The reason people were even looking into this social media activity might have to do with the fact both ladies unfollowed each other in 2017 when that Abel drama was in full swing.

Getty

Since then, Selena followed Bella again ... but as of Monday, it doesn't look like Bella has returned the favor. Not that we're trying to stir anything up.

Regardless, we're told there's no bad blood.

Instagram We're Getting Rid Of 'Likes' ... For A Limited Time

Getty

Instagram is getting rid of its "like" feature ... but don't worry, this is just a trial run and it's only going to affect some users in the United States.

IG CEO Adam Mosseri made the announcement that's sure to cause anxiety for some folks Friday at WIRED25 ... explaining the platform will experiment with hiding likes for US-based accounts starting next week.

The social media giant has already tested the same thing in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Italy, Japan and New Zealand ... and it's finally coming to America.

Mosseri says Instagram will slowly roll out the changes, removing publicly visible engagement metrics for a limited number of IG accounts. The person who posts a picture or video will still be able to see how many likes it gets.

So, what's the reasoning behind the change? Instagram says removing public likes could possibly make the user experience better, with less pressure to rack up likes.

AOC 'Joker' Stairs are a Bronx Classic ... Tourists Can't Claim It!!!

Exclusive
STAY OFF OUR STEPS, JOKERS!!!
TMZ.com

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is all for "Joker" putting a spotlight on a local NYC attraction she's known her whole life, but it sounds like she'd like to keep it a neighborhood secret.

We got AOC Tuesday on Capitol Hill and she dished on the famous Bronx stairs featured in the new flick. No spoiler here, but Joaquin Phoenix's Clown Prince of Gotham dances his way down the landmark to celebrate his transformation to the Joker.

The Congresswoman from the block says those stairs have been there since forever, and folks have been busting moves -- and maybe a few asses -- down them long before Joaquin made 'em trendy with tourists. AOC added it wasn't always the safest hang either.

If you haven't noticed, the stairs have been showing up all over Instagram -- as "Joker" fans anywhere near the borough wanna pull off their own versions of Arthur Fleck's dance.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

As much as AOC appreciates the shine on her district, she also doesn't want locals to lose their sense of ownership. You gotta see AOC as she declares, "Keep your Instagram posts outside of the Boogie Down! This is for us!!!"

You can take the girl outta the Bronx, but ...

Instagram Star 'Bazooka Arms' Destroyed In Russian MMA Fight

Breaking News

A Russian Instagram star -- known as Bazooka Arms -- stepped into the cage for an MMA fight against a Russian blogger ... and it didn't end well for the man with inflated biceps.

Kirill Tereshin went viral a few years ago after he reportedly artificially inflated his arms with Synthol drug injections. The 23-year-old (who has 445k IG followers) reportedly served in the Russian military.

But, last week, the guy decided to test his mettle against Russian blogger Oleg Mongol in a real MMA match in a gym in the Russian Republic of Khakassia.

Things started off okay for Bazooka Arms ...he traded strikes with Mongol ... but you can see his freakishly large arms quickly began to tire.

And, when the fight went to the ground, it didn't go well for him ... with Mongol eventually driving his forearm into Tereshin's neck so deeply, the IG star panicked and tapped.

There's no bad blood ... the two hugged it out at the end of the fight.

But, the lesson here is clear -- size doesn't matter after all ... when it comes to arms.

Miley Cyrus Responds to LGBTQ Backlash ... After Liam Hemsworth Dig

Exclusive Details
FINALLY, A NICE GUY

12:05 PM PT -- Miley's now addressing the backlash for her claim that crappy men forced her to be gay. She's making it crystal clear ... she stands with the LGBTQ community.

10:17 AM PT -- We're told Miley's attack has nothing to do with their divorce case. We're told the divorce is going smoothly. We've learned there was a prenup, so they aren't fighting over property, and they didn't have kids so there's no custody battle. What's more ... we're told Miley and Liam don't even speak so an argument didn't trigger her comments.

Miley Cyrus is taking some thinly-veiled shots at Liam Hemsworth, suggesting he was such a bad husband ... she thought all men were trash, and had no choice but to be gay.

Miley and her new man, Cody Simpson, did an Instagram Live video together Sunday to reminisce about their less-than-a-month-long relationship. The chat included her discussing her "hardcore feminist vibes" and dating struggles after splitting from Liam, which led to her whirlwind relationship with Kaitlynn Carter.

Miley said, "There are good men out there, guys. Don't give up. You don't have to be gay. There are good people with dicks out there. You just gotta find them. You gotta find a dick that's not a dick, you know what I mean?"

After Cody laughed about her advice, she continued ... "I always thought I had to be gay because I just thought, like, all guys were evil, but it's not true. There are good people out there that just happen to have dicks. I've only ever met one."

She then insinuated that one good guy with a penis is, in fact, Cody ... which put a smile on his face.

As we've reported ... the 2 have been getting closer and closer since video surfaced of them kissing, and Cody's even been spotted hanging with Miley and her mom.

Miley's remarks probably won't sit well with the LGBTQ community, and could potentially make her divorce from Liam more contentious.

NBA's Malik Beasley Fights Su'a Cravens In Apartment Lobby ... Crazy Brawl Video

Exclusive
THE BEATDOWN
TMZSports.com

NFL safety Su'a Cravens got into a crazy fight with Denver Nuggets guard Malik Beasley in an apartment lobby ... and TMZ Sports has the insane video.

It all went down at an upscale apartment complex in Denver on August 9 -- and you can see 22-year-old Beasley pacing the lobby without a shirt while wearing his Nuggets shorts.

We're told Beasley was heated over a situation involving a mutual female friend -- Instagram model Montana Yao -- and had called out Cravens to settle things once and for all.

You can see in the video, Cravens -- who was a member of the Broncos at the time -- enters the lobby and is immediately confronted by Beasley.

One thing quickly leads to another and the fists begin to fly.

The 2 pros trade blows for a minute before Su'a takes Beasley to the ground and appears to be winning the fight from the top position.

You can see Yao and a male friend of Beasley's jump in and removed Cravens. The NFL player eventually backs away from the scrum.

Yao is seen trying desperately to hold Beasley back -- using all of her strength to keep him from continuing the fight. After literally forcing herself in between the two combatants, she eventually throws herself to the ground and appears to be sobbing.

Meantime, we're told Cravens continued to taunt Beasley -- and invited him to "step outside" to continue the fight. Beasley DID go outside, but we're not sure what happened next.

What we do know ... Cravens went to Snapchat after the fight and bragged about beating Beasley up.

"I just had to beat a n***a ass that just tried me," Cravens said while wearing the same cloths from the brawl ... "Scratched my face, but I f*cked that n***a up, ol bitch ass n***a."

Right After The Fight
TMZSports.com

We're told law enforcement was NOT called about the fight ... and both parties have tried their damnedest to keep the incident under wraps.

Cravens was a star at USC before getting selected by the Washington Redskins in the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He signed with the Broncos in 2018 but was cut on August 30 2019. He's currently a free agent.

Beasley played one season at Florida State before going to the Nuggets with the 19th overall pick in 2016.

We know you're wondering ... so here's the tale of the tape.

Su'a is 6'1", 224 lbs. Beasley is 6'5", 195 lbs.

We've reached out to Cravens', Beasley's and Yao's reps ... so far, no word back.

Jennifer Aniston Hi, Instagram ... Say Hello to MY 'Friends'

Jennifer Aniston just joined the world of Instagram by reminding everyone some of her best friends are their "Friends." Translation: First class clout chasing!

Jen created her first account Tuesday morning on the social media platform, and her first post was a pic of herself hanging out with Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry.

It's unclear where or when the photo was taken, but Aniston was on Howard Stern's show last week and mentioned that she and her former costars were able to grab dinner together recently ... so it might be from that outing.

Jen captioned her pic, "And now we're Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM."

Miley Cyrus & Cody Simpson G'Day Mate ... Now Here's a G'Morning Kiss!!!

Miley Cyrus is already cooking for her new man ... fueling up Cody Simpson with some breakfast loving.

Cody planted a wet one on Miley Saturday morning, and thanked her for whipping up a meal ahead of a swim meet he has today. The pic, which he posted, screams puppy love for the couple ... even though they just went public like 24 hours ago.

Backgrid

We're guessing Miley was scooping up ingredients for Cody's special breakfast when she hit the grocery store Friday evening.

Gotta say, she sure seemed to have a little extra bounce in her step as she left the store with a cart full of goodies.

Justin Bieber Cat Fight with PETA ... Tells Org to 'Suck it'

TMZ.com

Justin Bieber's not playing with PETA -- he's firing back hard at the animal rights org after it slammed him for dropping $35k on 2 exotic cats ... telling them to suck it.

JB adopted a pair of Savannah kittens a little more than a month ago -- which he named Sushi and Tuna -- and revealed the brother and sister felines on Instagram as "my children" ... much to the dismay of PETA.

It released a statement chastising his exotic pets purchase, grousing he should have adopted cats from a local shelter. Justin caught wind of the criticism ... and went off.

In a series of IG Stories, Bieber first posted a screenshot of an article about the backlash but added his own caption -- "PETA can suck it."
