Richard Sherman just came through BIG TIME for a youth football team from his hometown ... donating a big chunk of change to send them to the championship tournament!!

The Hub City (6U) Pop Warner team from Compton earned a trip to the National Youth Championship in Florida after going undefeated this season.

Not only was their play on the field impressive -- each kid had to maintain at least a 3.1 GPA in order to play.

But, there was one problem -- the team had to raise at least $15k in less than a month to cover travel and hotel expenses ... and needed help from the community to reach their goal.

Luckily for the team, the 49ers superstar -- who went to Dominguez High School in Compton -- got wind of their campaign after seeing the story on FOX 11 in L.A. and dropped $5,000 to help them get past the $15k mark!

"I respect good football but I respect the 3.1 min gpa more," Sherman said. "Establishing good habits young. I would like to help."

The 31-year-old quickly sprang into action -- sending over the donation to the team's GoFundMe page just minutes after finding out about the team ... and now they should be on their way to get that trophy!

Sherman isn't the only one helping out ... we're told Oakland Raiders cornerback Keisean Nixon -- who's from Compton -- donated $2k.

Props to Sherman and Nixon!!

Kyrie Irving Handing Out $100s to Chi-Town Kids ... Pregame Handout Pays Off

HUNDO HERO
TMZSports.com

Kyrie Irving was in a giving mood before the rest of the Brooklyn Nets played the Chicago Bulls -- and it looks like karma paid him and his team back a few hours later.

The Nets' superstar point guard was greeted by a group of fans Saturday in Chi-Town, where we're told Kyrie took some time to chop it up with a group of youngsters. He went even further than that though ... handing out cold hard cash to the kids too.

TMZ Sports got ahold of video showing KI handing out what appears to be hundred dollar bills to the group that had congregated around the team bus. It looks like he dishes out a few bills he's got on hand, and toward the end ... seems to give away a stack.

Check it out ... Kyrie asks who's in charge of the group of kids -- and it seems like an adult answers him off-camera. Kyrie hands that person what looks to be more than just one hundred dollar bill ... and tells them to take care of the kids with it. Super nice, right?!

Well, it looks like the universe paid it forward soon afterward ... 'cause Kyrie's Nets squeaked out a win against the hometown team WITHOUT him being on the court.

He sat out for Saturday's game to due to a shoulder injury -- the first game he's missed as a Net since joining the team in the off-season. Good deeds equal good results ... noted.

'TIS THE SEASON
TMZ.com

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took Saint and North to The Galleria in Houston TX, and they gave shoppers a show.

Kim, North and Saint hit the ice skating rink and did a respectable job as gawkers looked on. We don't see Kanye near the rink, although it's a good guess he was watching.

The brood spent about an hour and a half in the mall, as Houston police and mall security ran interference.

Kanye was happy to sign autographs as they left.

TMZ.com

They're all in town for Joel Osteen's Sunday Service at the Lakewood Church. TMZ broke the story ... Kanye will appear at Osteen's 11 AM service, walk up to the pulpit and have a half-hour conversation with Joel about his freshly formed commitment to God.

There will be an evening service as well. Kanye is bringing his choir -- we're told around 120 strong -- and the 45,000 seat venue is expected to be overflowing with fans. Tickets are being distributed through Ticketmaster for free, but they're already having problems with scalpers.

Check out TMZ tomorrow, and we'll show you the service.

TMZ/Fox 11

C. Thomas Howell is ready to spring into action and help his alma mater in Santa Clarita recover ... after the California school became the site of the 366th U.S. mass shooting this year.

Tommy tells TMZ ... he was absolutely stunned when he heard Saugus High School -- where he graduated from in 1984 -- had been placed on lockdown Thursday after a 16-year-old student opened fire ... shooting 5 students, killing 2 and then turning the gun on himself.

The actor -- star of the cult classic "The Outsiders" -- said the news of the shooting stopped him in his tracks because he grew up in the sleepy town ... a town he says is known for being a safe neighborhood and a city where anyone would wanna raise their family.

Tommy, who splits time between L.A. and his home in Georgia where he's currently at, says he's getting in touch with the school and will see if there's anything he can do to help out.

He says he would talk to the students to offer some comforting words and help in any other way possible. Tommy -- who currently stars in the AMC hit show "The Terror" and is known for his role as a brash LAPD cop in the hit show "Southland" -- says he's praying for the family of the victims and the community.

Tommy also wants it to be known -- #SaugusStrong.

CLASSIC CASE OF ABUSE
TMZ.com

Gloria Steinem believes T.I. is violating the law by going to his daughter's gynecology exams to make sure she's a virgin, and she says the courts should get involved. Seriously.

We talked to the pioneering journalist and feminist Tuesday at LAX, where she weighed in on Tip's controversial confession about his now 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah. Like many have said, she thinks his behavior reeks of a classic sexist with control issues

But, Gloria went further ... calling the practice a human rights violation.

Dad's in charge
Ladies Like Us with Nazanin and Nadia

As for Deyjah signing off on doctors sharing her medical info with her dad -- GS thinks there's an off-balance power relationship there too.

As we reported, T.I. went on the "Ladies Like Us" podcast and told the hosts he attends Deyjah's annual gynecology visits and asks the doctor for "his results." He said he wants the doctor to ensure her hymen is intact ... which he believes proves she's still a virgin.

When our photog broke the news to Gloria that T.I.'s cool with his younger teenage son having sex, well ... let's just say that was her breaking point.

As far as she's concerned, it's time for a judge to step up. Just watch.

Amber Portwood Alleged Machete Incident on Audio ... Argument on Video

CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Without A Crystal Ball

10:11 AM PT -- A rep for Amber tells TMZ, "These recordings, obtained without Amber's knowledge and disseminated without her consent, serve as a painful reminder of a challenging and complicated time in her life she would like to move on from. Her full focus continues to remain on reaching a move favorable custody agreement for her son, James."

Amber Portwood alleged machete incident with her baby daddy was captured on audio -- and it's pretty terrifying to listen to, as Amber can apparently be heard hacking at a door.

Video and audio of the entire blowout between the "Teen Mom OG" star and Andrew Glennon from this past 4th of July has surfaced, and it gives you a sneak peek as to what led up to the alleged shoe throwing and machete wielding from Amber.

AMBER'S BLOW-UP
Without A Crystal Ball

Ring video that the family has set up in their home shows Andrew and Amber getting ready to head out with their 1-year-old son, James, to catch fireworks. But, the family has to turn around after leaving in their car due to a main road being closed ... which pissed off AP.

You can then hear Amber unloading on Andrew, telling him to STFU after he chastises her for being ill-prepared every 4th of July. The argument escalates after they head out in the car yet again, after which the family comes back to the house for a 2nd time.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department

This is where s*** kinda hits the fan ... as you can see and hear Amber threatens to toss a bunch of Andrew's stuff out on the street, and then you hear Andrew ask if she chugged a bunch of her meds in one sitting ... the implication being she's threatening to kill herself.

Without A Crystal Ball

At this point, Andrew gets behind a door -- supposedly while holding their son -- and you hear Amber demanding he open the door. Then comes the hacking -- 3 strikes, from what Andrew says is a machete. Amber seems to acknowledge it is, in fact, a machete.

IT DOESN'T ADD UP
MTV

As you know ... Amber copped a plea deal in the DV case -- pleading guilty to domestic battery and intimidation, this after initially denying any such machete attack.

She and Andrew are currently locked in a custody battle over the kid -- he wants to move to Malibu, but she's trying to prevent that by any means.

Michael Irvin I'm Rooting for Antonio Brown ... 'There's Nothing Wrong with That!'

Exclusive
IT'S NOT OVER YET
TMZSports.com

Michael Irvin says he's still 100% on Team Antonio Brown -- rooting for the embattled NFL star to get his career and life on track ... and he ain't apologizing for it!

The NFL Hall of Famer tells TMZ Sports he knows supporting AB isn't the popular thing to do these days ... but Mike doesn't care what everyone else thinks.

Irvin says he spent his offseason giving motivational speeches -- and talked to kids from "some of the hardest ghetto areas in Miami that Antonio Brown has come from."

"And, I want his story to end well so I can use it as inspiration and motivation for all those other little black kids in the ghettos and in the hells of America that are trying to get out."

Irvin says he knows Antonio is self-destructing with some of his off-the-field antics -- but the Cowboys legend tells us, "Everybody's talking about the problem, but nobody's talking about the solution."

"We as a country get off on the problem because somehow, someway we take that as some kind of self-fulfilling thing that, 'Hey, he made all this money playing football but at least I'm not making the stupid decisions that he's making now.' And, I think that's a sad way to look at it."

Irvin adds, "I want his story to end well so I can use it to inspire others that are growing up in the same hellhole he grew up in and ain't nothing wrong with that, man."

"And, I'm not gonna let anybody make me think there's something wrong with that."

Brown has a BUNCH of obstacles keeping him from playing again -- starting with allegations he raped a woman in 2018. The NFL is currently investigating the situation and, according to multiple reports, he's not expected to play in the NFL again this season.

He was also cut by the Raiders and the Patriots this season after all sorts of behavior -- from potentially illegally recording Jon Gruden to allegedly sending menacing text messages to a woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.

Amazon 'Daddy's Little Slut' Shirt ... Yanked After Uproar

Breaking News

Fathers are going to have to look elsewhere to dress up their kiddos ... Amazon is no longer selling a kids' shirt emblazoned with the phrase, "Daddy's Little Slut."

Amazon yanked the piece of children's clothing from its online store Friday after some folks on social media raised a huge stink, calling the shirt offensive and shaming Jeff Bezos' company.

The slutty shirt is designed by OnlyBabyCare and Amazon was hawking it for $18 before it went viral and the pearl-clutching fun police forced the company's hand.

It's interesting ... dads were able to dress their little girls for months before the product got the ax ... the shirt had been available on Amazon since June and was originally listed for $36.

The product description is pretty rich ... with OnlyBabyCare claiming the garment was suitable for "playing outside, birthday party, baby shower, baptism, wedding, baby photography, daily wear, family day."

At least there's no sexism when it comes to these sluts ... the manufacturer said the shirt was unisex and suitable for "little girls or boys."

A rep for Amazon tells TMZ, "All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The product in question is no longer available."

Conor McGregor Not the Father of 2-Year-Old Love Child ... DNA Test Shows

Breaking News
TMZ.com

Conor McGregor has fought his way out of ANOTHER sticky situation -- reportedly proving he's NOT the father in a dispute of a 2-year-old "love child."

26-year-old Terri Murray had accused Conor of knocking her up back in 2017 -- just weeks before Conor's GF Dee Devlin gave birth to their son Conor Jr.

Murray claims she and Conor slept together at his hotel during the '17 Grand National in Liverpool. There is a photo circulating of Conor partying with Murray around that time.

But, according to Conor's rep, the UFC superstar has taken a DNA test which proves once and for all ... (switch to Maury Povich voice) ... HE'S NOT THE FATHER!!!

"To conclusively end any and all erroneous media reports, Conor McGregor took a DNA test recently which confirmed to all parties that he is not the father of the child in Liverpool," Conor's spokesperson said in a statement.

The Irish Independent claims they have seen the results showing a "zero percent probability" McGregor is the daddy.

So, another big win for Conor ... who was just slapped on the wrist for punching a man in a Dublin bar, slapped on the wrist for smashing a phone in Miami and slapped on the wrist for attacking a UFC bus in New York.

Dr. Oz to T.I. Forget Hymen Checks ... Conversation's a Better Approach

Exclusive
THIS KILLS HONESTY
TMZ.com

Dr. Oz has some breaking news for T.I. -- while most are blasting his method of checking his daughter's virginity as abusive, the good doc says it's also ineffective ... and there's a much better way.

We got Oz Thursday outside NBC's 30 Rock studios, where he gave us a medical take on T.I. saying he's been taking his now 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah, to the gynecologist for years ... to make sure her hymen is intact.

Dad's in charge
Ladies Like Us with Nazanin and Nadia

He explained exactly why -- anatomically-speaking -- T.I. would be highly disappointed to know the hymen doesn't guarantee what he thinks it does. We're guessing the knowledge the Doc drops here will benefit a lot of people ... not just Tip.

Oz suggests a different approach that would get the rapper far more accurate information about his daughter -- and it's got nothing to do with an OB/GYN.

As we reported, the backlash against T.I. has been so overwhelming. Nazanin and Nadia -- the hosts of the 'Ladies Like Us' podcast where he made the remarks -- made the decision to delete the episode.

They also apologized for their "knee jerk" reaction, laughing awkwardly at T.I.'s revelation about his daughter.

Jenelle Evans' Ex Nathan Happy She Left David Eason ... My Son's Much Safer Now!!!

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Jenelle Evans isn't the only one fearful for her children's well-being in the presence of David Eason ... her ex is too, and he's relieved she finally left him.

Sources close to Nathan Griffith -- the father of Jenelle's 5-year-old son, Kaiser -- tell TMZ ... he's happy if Jenelle's happy ... and if that takes no longer being under the same roof as David, then he's all for it.

We're told Nathan was constantly worried about Kaiser's safety due to Eason's track record of violent and disturbing behavior. That's why Nathan attempted to get primary custody from Jenelle ... although, she ultimately retained it.

Our sources say Nathan thinks Jenelle is a good mom, and now that he has some peace of mind ... he's perfectly fine with her having Kaiser. We're told he also hopes co-parenting with her will be easier with David out of the picture.

As we reported ... Jenelle got a restraining order against David after telling the court, "I am scared for my life and my children's well-being." She cited his recent threats, history of violence and stockpile of weapons as examples and a judge agreed ... granting the order prohibiting Eason from contacting Jenelle and her children.

T.I. Takes Daughter to Gyno To Make Sure She's Still a Virgin!!!

Dad's in charge
Ladies Like Us with Nazanin and Nadia

T.I. says he still accompanies his now 18-year-old daughter for an annual gynecology check-up ... just to make sure her virginity is intact.

The rapper recently made the revelation on the podcast "Ladies Like Us," saying he's been taking Deyjah Harris to the gyno for years now, and sits in for the results with the intent of confirming her hymen has not been broken.

Tip got into the convo when the hosts -- Nazanin and Nadia -- asked if he's had the sex talk with his daughters. He told them he schedules the doctor's visit each year ... usually right after Deyjah's birthday.

T.I. says he's simply exercising his right as a parent to steer his daughter away from what he considers bad decisions. As he put it to Nadia and Nazanin -- who's singer Miguel's wife, BTW -- "I think that most kids in hindsight, looking back, they always thank their parents for not allowing them to damage themselves as much as they could have."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Deyjah turned 18 this year, and it's worth noting she put the Internet, and any guys looking to holler at her, on notice. She warned just 'cause she's 18, it doesn't give older guys a right to try to get with her.

Guess Who This Little Dancer Turned Into!

This tutu'ed tyke was born in Texas, grew up in West Virginia, and went to college at Denison University in Ohio ... where she majored in theater.

She moved to New York City in 1995 to pursue her acting career, and landed her first onscreen gig in the TV movie "Zoya," in which she played Melissa Gilbert's daughter.

The following year, she nabbed a small role on "Law & Order" like so many other aspiring young actors do ... along with a guest spot on "Spin City." While working on the sitcom, she met Stephen Colbert and actually made some extra dough babysitting his daughter!

This was all before she moved to Hollywood and bounced around from one canceled TV show to the next, before finally making it big as a badass CIA agent on J.J. Abrams' famous action series.

She'd go on to star in one of the all-time great romantic comedies ... and get married to a guy who'd eventually play Batman in the movies.

Can you guess who she is?
