Drake, Odell Beckham Jr. Sued Over Nightclub Beatdown

1/22/2019 3:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drake, Odell Beckham Jr. and Kourtney Kardashian's ex are being sued by a guy who claims he was viciously beaten by a gang of thugs and Drake and Beckham were behind it.

Bennett Sipes claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he was at Delilah nightclub in WeHo when there was a confrontation inside between himself and the defendants. When he attempted to leave the VIP area, he says Drake gave the "throat slash" hand gesture.

As he was attempting to enter the restroom, he says he was attacked by Younes Bendjima, Kourtney Kardashian's ex, along with members of Drake and Beckham's entourage. 

The video shows the brutal fight. Sipes says he continues to incur medical bills and suffers "extreme mental anguish and physical pain."

As TMZ first reported, a source at the club told us Sipes "talked smack" as he approached the group.  

Sipes filed a police report, but changed his mind and dropped it ... at least criminally.

He's also suing Delilah and others.

EXCLUSIVE

Greg Hardy is adamant the illegal knee he landed during his fight Saturday night was NOT intentional -- telling TMZ Sports it was a "rookie mistake" and he desperately wants a shot at redemption. 

Hardy was disqualified from the Jan. 19 fight against Allen Crowder for throwing a powerful knee to Crowder's head while his opponent's knee was still on the canvas. 

"I feel bad," Hardy told us ... "You never want to break the rules."

The ex-NFL star has only been fighting professionally for less than a year and says, "It was a rookie mistake and I'm a rookie."

Hardy says he's still trying to get a grasp on all of the MMA rules -- but wants the public to know his intention was NOT to take out Crowder with a cheap shot. 

Now, Hardy says he would love another crack at Crowder -- and hopes to prove he's serious about becoming a top UFC fighter. 

The good news for Hardy ... Greg says Dana White spoke with him after the fight and was incredibly supportive, even though Greg was in a "bad place" mentally. 

As for Crowder, he tells TMZ Sports he forgives Hardy and would be down to fight him again if the money's right.

UFC's Allen Crowder I Forgive Greg Hardy ... Knee Wasn't Dirty

1/21/2019 2:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Allen Crowder -- the UFC fighter who took a vicious knee to the head from Greg Hardy on Saturday -- says the move was NOT a dirty one ... telling TMZ Sports, "sh*t happens."

Hardy and Crowder squared off in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+ ... but the match ended in the 2nd round after Greg blasted Allen with a right knee to the temple while he was still down.

Hardy was DQ'd ... and given his troubled past -- many wondered if the ex-NFL player who has been previously accused of domestic violence MEANT to throw the illegal shot.

But, Crowder says he doesn't think Hardy had any malicious intentions with the move ... saying, "it's a fight. It's the heat of the moment."

"There's a lot of people that have made the same mistake. I have no hard feelings against him at all. He was tired, and sh*t happens. I have no hard feelings about it at all."

For his part ... Greg says he didn't know the knee was illegal -- saying, "it was not intentional."

FYI ... Crowder says if officials had given him another 30-or-so seconds -- he woulda gotten up and continued the fight.

As for a rematch ... Crowder says he'd be down -- if the price is right.

Tiffany Haddish Crashes Adrien Broner Post-Fight Presser ... Hilarity Ensues

1/21/2019 11:10 AM PST

Tiffany Haddish gave Adrien Broner's swollen face something to grin about after loss to Manny Pacquaio ... bum-rushing his post-fight press conference and doing her best to lighten the mood.

Broner took to the podium to explain once again how he didn't lose the fight ... and after a couple of regular questions from media, a very familiar voice from "South Central News" started in.

Of course, that reporter was Haddish -- and rather than ask anything about the fight, Tiff wanted to know how and where she could get some Fashionova duds from Broner, who's been rocking the brand lately.

Broner shoulda been ready for questions from Haddish, because she'd turned up earlier in the presser, asking equally amusing questions to light heavyweight champ Marcus Browne.

Now we don't know how Tiffany made it into the event, or why she did it, but we do know this ... it was the most entertaining part of the night.

#SheReady.

Tee Grizzley Blasts Adrien Broner ... I Lost $20k On You!

1/21/2019 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

Detroit rapper Tee Grizzley is pissed at Adrien Broner ... saying Adrien cost him a grip of cash when he got punished by Manny Pacquiao ... a $20,000 grip to be exact.

Broner got his ass handed to him Saturday night, in a fight where he only landed 50 punches and spent most of the match on his bike, running from a 40-year-old.

After the fight, Broner told Jim Gray he believed he won the fight -- and noted his pals in the "hood" were behind him. 

"I did this for the hood," Broner said during the post-fight interview ... "You know I beat that boy."

Most of Twitter was disgusted with AB's performance, but Tee was especially pissed -- taking to social media to throw major shade at Broner. 

"AB, what hood was you doing that sh*t for bro? You shootin' dice and all in the airport playing and sh*t, you shoulda been training. I lost 20 racks f*cking with you."

Broner normally comes back hard when somebody gets at him, so we'll have to see if he responds to Tee ... but with all the smoke he had for Jim Gray, we'd be kinda disappointed if he didn't.

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.

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.
