Baker Mayfield Takes Shot At Hue ... Jokes About Crotch Grab

1/21/2019 6:38 AM PST
Breaking News

Baker Mayfield took ANOTHER jab at Hue Jackson ... AND joked about a crotch grab that got him suspended -- and it all went down in a video skit with Peyton Manning's bro.

Baker went on Cooper Manning's "Manning Hour" -- a FOX NFL Sunday skit ... and while he was "cooking" up a cake -- he took a jab at his ex-coach while praising his current one.

Cooper: "Look, if you're not a fan of kitchens, it's OK."

Baker: "No, I love kitchens."

Cooper: "Yeah, kitchens are great. They're better than Jacksons."

Baker: "Anything's better than Hue -- oh, um, you."

Of course, Mayfield and Jackson have had a longstanding beef ever since Hue bolted for the rival Bengals after being fired from Cleveland back in October.

There's more ... Mayfield also mocked a sideline crotch grab that earned him a suspension back when he was a QB at Oklahoma.

Cooper: "Grab the nuts."

Baker: "NFL doesn't really like it when I do that."

Cooper: "No, the nuts!"

Baker: "Oh! Sorry, I have a history with that."

This ain't the first time this month Baker's mocked an issue he's had in the past ... he also laughed off his Arkansas arrest in a Fortnite stream last week.

It all makes us wonder once again ... is Lincoln Riley is laughing yet???

Fetty Wap's BM Massive Brawl Caught on Video

1/20/2019 7:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It was a brutal scene outside a White Castle in Paterson, NJ early Friday morning -- and the new video clearly shows it -- as a group of people appear to be attacking Lezhae Lowder, Fetty Wap's baby mama and her friends. 

Alexis Skyy was there, laying low inside her Benz Truck, which you can see in the drive-thru while the melee occurs ... at least that's what Lezhae tells TMZ.

Lezhae and Alexis allegedly got into it earlier in the night at a bar. According to Alexis, she and her friends then went to the White Castle where Lezhae pulled up and tried to confront her with a knife.  

Although there are no signs of a knife in the video, you see the violence ... someone is stomped and punched repeatedly before being dragged by the hair. At one point you see Lezhae on the ground, covering herself.

The most frightening moment comes when a car tries to drive through the crowd, almost hitting multiple people before crashing into the side of the White Castle. The violence erupts again as the crowd rushes the car, smashing the back windshield.

Lezhae was arrested for misdemeanor reckless endangerment for involvement in the brawl.

Adrien Broner Explosion of Anger ... After Losing to Pacquiao

1/20/2019 6:59 AM PST

Adrien Broner went off the rails Saturday night in a post-fight interview after pretty much getting destroyed by Manny Pacquiao for the WBA welterweight championship ... telling Showtime's Jim Gray he could beat the crap out of him if he wanted.

Pacquiao dominated the fight -- pretty much everyone but Adrien agrees -- and Broner went on a tirade with Gray, who warned him to keep it civil or else he'd pull the plug on the interview.

Broner suggested the fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas was rigged, but Gray stood his ground ... not only saying the outcome was the right one but questioning Broner's future.

Check out the vid ... Broner doesn't really have a comeback to Gray regarding his recent losses, but he does say he'd have an unblemished record if Gray would step in the ring with him.

Broner posted a photo to Instagram shortly after the fight to show off the absence of bruises.

Nick Cannon I'd Take Kanye in a Fight!!! Drake is More Ye's Speed

1/20/2019 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon's confident he'd whoop Kanye West if they ever came to blows, but if Ye and Drake ever threw down ... his money's on the guy who's got more fire.

The "Wild 'n Out" host sat down with Raquel Harper for a new episode of BET's "Raq Rants," and dished on some real hip-hop feuds hypothetically coming to blows.

You'll recall ... Nick and Kanye had beef in September after Ye got pissed because Nick talked about Kim Kardashian's body. They eventually squashed it, but it still lends itself to fight fodder.

Cannon makes it clear he thinks he'd take Kim's husband down -- and explained why. Now, Kanye and his current nemesis, Drake, squaring off is a different story ... in Nick's eyes.

You gotta see Nick and Raq break down the fight. BTW, they both think if Diddy ever slapped Kanye the way he allegedly slapped Drake ... things would have turned out a lot differently.

Check out Nick's full interview on "Raq Rants," Tuesday night at 11 PM on BET. If you're on the West Coast and have Dish or DirecTV, it's on at 8 PM.

Kimora Lee Simmons Parking Spot Brouhaha Cops Called

1/20/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kimora Lee Simmons allegedly went to battle with another driver over a primo parking spot, and in the end ... they both ended up going to the cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Russell Simmons' ex-wife got into a dispute with a woman last week in a FedEx store parking lot in L.A., and it got physical. We're told the ladies were arguing over a spot and shoved each other before Kimora took off.

The cops were called by the other woman -- who filed a battery report against Kimora -- but later in the day ... Simmons contacted police and filed one of her own against the lady.

We're told cops are looking into it and plan to pull surveillance footage of the incident.

We reached out to Kimora ... no word back, so far.

Chris Weidman Calls Out Jon Jones ... I'll Take His Belt!!!

1/20/2019 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Weidman has his sights set on Jon Jones for his next fight ... telling TMZ Sports he's, "Always imagined going up and taking his belt."

Of course, Weidman's dealing with a neck injury ... and says surgery might be an option -- but once he's cleared -- he's gunnin' for Jones.

"He's been on my radar since I was a champion and he was champion at 205. I always imagined going up and taking his belt."

Weidman even threw some shade Jon's way ... saying the guy can't be considered the G.O.A.T. 'cause of his positive PED tests!!!

Jon's next fight is Anthony Smith at UFC 235 -- but he is lookin' for a 'bout after that ... and Chris says even if he needs surgery -- he'll DEFINITELY be ready to fight sometime in 2019.

So ... could the fight go down?? Stay tuned.

Fetty Wap Baby Mamas Beefing With Each Other ... Alexis Skyy's Foe Arrested After Allegedly Pulling Knife

1/19/2019 2:35 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

2:24 PM PT -- Sources close to Lezhae dispute Alexis's account of how things went down. We're told Lezhae did not follow Alexis or her crew to the White Castle lot, they just both coincidentally happened to land there for a late night bite. Our sources say when Lezhae pulled up, Alexis and her crew stormed her car, which prompted Lezhae to hop out with a knife in hand ... 'cause we're told she didn't want to get jumped. We're told Lezhae insists she did not swing the knife at anyone before a fight broke out between the crews, which allegedly included Lezhae getting hit by males in Alexis's crew. Our Lezhae sources insist Alexis was present during the altercation and not at home. Regarding Lezhae's arrest, we're told (and have confirmed through a police report) she was arrested for disorderly conduct/improper behavior for allegedly continuing to yell and threaten the opposing crew when cops eventually showed. She was not arrested for wielding a knife or for getting into a fight.

Fetty Wap has some serious baby mama drama ... because two of his BMs have major beef, and Lezhae Lowder was arrested after allegedly pulling a knife with the intended target ... Alexis Skyy.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lezhae was arrested and charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment after cops in Paterson, NJ responded to a call about a fight in a White Castle parking lot.

Sources close to Alexis tell TMZ ... the 'Love & Hip Hop' star was partying Thursday night at the New Jersey bar where Lezhae works, and Lezhae tried to fight Alexis as soon as she arrived. We're told the 2 women eventually calmed down, but Lezhae threw a bottle at Alexis' car when she was leaving! 

After the drama at the club, we're told Alexis went home and her friends went to a nearby White Castle ... and that's when Lezhae pulled up to the parking lot looking for Alexis -- and allegedly started throwing more bottles!

We're told Alexis' friends piled out of their car and Lezhae allegedly pulled out a knife, asking for Alexis ... from there, things escalated and a fight broke out! Cops were called at 3:20 AM and Lezhae ended up in handcuffs.

Our law enforcement sources would not confirm allegations of bottles being thrown or Lezhae pulling a knife ... and Lezhae has not responded to our requests for comment.

As you know ... Alexis is also beefing with Blac Chyna over Rob Kardashian, and they almost came to blows during a house party! 

Hopefully, Rob knows what he's getting into with Alexis ... if not, he might want to hit up Fetty.

Dana White Amanda Nunes Is She-G.O.A.T. ... Better Than Jon Jones?

1/19/2019 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says it's obvious to him ... Amanda Nunes is the greatest female fighter EVER. 

But, when you add men to the mix -- is she better than Jon Jones

White broke it down for us ... saying Nunes has not only beaten the best of the best, but destroyed Cris Cyborg -- "the most feared fighter out there" -- and made it look easy. 

Don't forget, she also dominated Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko (twice) and Miesha Tate

Dana says Jon's got a pretty solid case too ... beating the hell out of stars like Shogun Rua, Rampage Jackson, Alexander Gustafsson (twice), Vitor Belfort, Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader

Oh, and Dana says he's SUPER impressed by the fact JJ beat Daniel Cormier on two separate occasions because DC is an "unbelievable" fighter too! 

So, who really is the G.O.A.T.? 

The best part of the conversation is the fact that BOTH fighters are still active and in their prime -- so, it's a long way until we'll find out. 

Manny Pacquiao I Can Beat Floyd Mayweather Now ... Because I'm Healthy

1/19/2019 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Manny Pacquiao says that if he faces off against Floyd Mayweather again things will be "different," because his body is totally healthy, and he feels 20 years younger.

Translation: Manny thinks his shoulder held him back in the first Mayweather fight, and that he'd kick Floyd's ass now.

We talked to Pac Man ahead of his big fight against Adrien Broner on Saturday, and although the Filipino legend was totally focused on AB, we asked him about a possible rematch against Floyd.

Manny was dominated by Floyd in their first fight, but many blamed a shoulder injury for the bad performance ... an injury Manny says is now totally healed.

"I feel like I'm in my late 20s. The way I work hard, the way I move, it's still the same, nothing's changed."

So, the question is, now that Manny's found the fountain of youth, would the result be different if he and Floyd fought again? People think it might happen if he beats Broner.

"Of course, it's different. It's very big difference when you're healthy or not healthy."

Floyd, stop counting money and get in the gym, this guy wants you.

Soulja Boy I'm Hot S**t RN ... Get Ready for My New Album!!!

1/18/2019 1:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy loves him some Soulja Boy, and why shouldn't he? He's wanted by multiple record labels, and he's the hottest rapper in the game after having the biggest 2018 comeback ... according to him.

The rapper tells TMZ his old record label, Interscope, desperately wants to sign him back, so he used it as leverage with his current label, eOne, to strike a deal for a new album ... which he says is coming soon. Soulja says it's 12 or 13 tracks ... and it's going to get the year kicked off right.

Soulja's also got a list a mile long to prove he's hip-hop's rising star once again -- including playing a venue he never landed back in the day -- and doubles down on his Tyga bashing.

There's more, though ... because the rapper's still got beef with Drake over allegedly stealing bars from his song in 2006. Oh, and he reminds us he paved the way for Justin Bieber on YouTube.

UFC's Rachael Ostovich 'Grateful' to Fight After Domestic Violence Attack

1/17/2019 12:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich says she's "grateful" to be fighting on Saturday night --  after a domestic violence incident in November nearly derailed her MMA career. 

"I'm feeling so grateful to be here," Ostovich told us in NYC ... "There was a point where I wouldn't have been here."

As we previously reported, Ostovich suffered a broken orbital bone when she was allegedly attacked by her MMA fighter husband in their Hawaii home on Nov. 18. 

Ostovich initially pulled out of her fight with Paige VanZant due to the severity of the injuries -- but after she was cleared by another doctor, she asked Dana White to be put back on the card. 

Ostovich says she's received a ton of support from a bunch of UFC fighters -- including VanZant.

"She's an amazing person and she's been very supportive and I love that," Ostovich said. 

We also spoke with Paige who says she has a TON of respect for Ostovich -- but the bottom line, when the cage door closes ... they're going to war.
