Jamie Foxx's Nat'l Anthem

Blame It On the A A A Alcohol

... Says Marlon Wayans

11 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Look, Jamie Foxx's version of the National Anthem was not great ... but it wasn't Roseanne Barr either ... so says Marlon Wayans ... who says he has an idea why Jamie may have shot a brick at the Mayweather fight. 

Long story short ... Marlon suspects the booze is to blame -- since Jamie was partying with some big dawgs like Puffy and Floyd ... and ultimately gave in the power of the blue dot. 

For the record, Wayans says Foxx is a talented genius who's got serious pipes -- he just had an off night. 

But he does issue Foxx a challenge ... a National Anthem sing-off. Check out the clip ... he's not bad. 

San Antonio Spurs

Coach Pop Hooked Us Up

... Dinner, Drinks, Party Bus

5/4/2015 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504_spurs_twitterThe guy who organized the San Antonio Spurs post-Game 7 mega-bash was their very own coach -- who paid for a fancy steak dinner, drinks and a party bus to thank his players ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Our Spurs sources tell us ...Coach Gregg Popovich wanted to show his appreciation to his players after they were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday night ... so he organized a night out in Hollywood. 

We're told he set up a post-game steak dinner at Mastros in Beverly Hills ... and paid for EVERYTHING (and this place sure as hell ain't cheap). 

Afterward, Pop hired a party bus to chauffeur the guys to Project Club L.A. -- and encouraged the team to "take their minds off the game and let loose" ... not wallow in their sorrows.

The guys did just that ... some harder than others ... and as we previously reported, Tim Duncan had to carry at least ONE of his over-intoxicated teammates back to the bus. 

Pretty cool boss. 

Stephen A. Smith

I Rock With 50 Cent

... Awkwardly

5/4/2015 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen A. Smith is obviously a close personal friend of 50 Cent ... 'cause TMZ Sports has video of the ESPN host taking the stage with Fiddy this past weekend in Vegas and ... it's funny in a good way.

50 was performing at Drai's Friday night when 47-year-old Smith hopped onstage for what we'd like to believe was an audition for membership in the G-Unit.

Check out the clip -- Stephen A. seems to have mastered "what the hell am I doing up here" swag ... 'cause 50 doesn't seem bothered with him being in the crew ... even though he looks like someone's uncle.

Eat your heart out Skip Bayless.

Lawrence Taylor Jr. -- the son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor -- just plead guilty to statutory rape, child molestation, and aggravated sodomy (oral sex) ... and was sentenced to 30 years in prison ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Taylor Jr. was arrested in Georgia after two 13-year-old girls told cops Lawrence had forced himself upon them on separate occasions.

According to Cobb County Superior Court officials, Taylor Jr. was sentenced to 30 years in jail ... but will be eligible for release in 10. 

TMZ Sports spoke with the father of one of the victims ... who says he is happy Taylor Jr. is off the streets, but feels he should have gotten MORE time for his crimes.

We reached out to the Taylor family -- so far, no comment.

FYI -- Taylor's father is also a registered sex offender ... who plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute in 2011 ... stemming from an incident with an underage girl.

Chris Brown

Suspect in Las Vegas Battery ...

Basketball Related Again

Chris Brown is accused of brawling with another guy early Monday morning during a basketball game in Las Vegas -- and police have named him a suspect for battery.

The altercation went down at the Palms Casino Resort -- according to police ... Chris was playing hoops at 3:42 AM and at some point he got into an argument with one of the guys playing -- and allegedly punched him. The pickup game was being played in the famous Hardwood Suite ... where Chris was staying.

Police responded to the scene, but didn't talk to Brown when they got there.

Cops say Chris now has 2 options: either sign a citation for misdemeanor battery, and agree to show up in court to face the charge -- OR take his chances with the D.A ... who would decide whether to press charges.

TMZ broke the story ... Brown just settled a lawsuit over another fight during a pickup basketball game in an L.A. gym.

But he also dodged a major bullet -- if the Vegas fight had happened before Chris got off probation in the Rihanna case -- back in March -- he could be going back to jail.

Josh Hamilton Doesn't Need AA

... Have a Drink, Hit Bombs

breaking news

0504_charlie_sheen_josh_hamilton_tmz_gettyCharlie Sheen has a message for MLB superstar (and recovering substance abuser) Josh Hamilton -- "F**k AA" ... have a drink and go hit some bombs."

Sheen is FURIOUS at the Los Angeles Angels for the way they treated the embattled slugger -- claiming they did him dirty by trading him to the Rangers after admitting drug use. 

Now, Sheen isn't just blasting the team -- but the whole concept of Alcoholics Anonymous altogether ... with a scathing new message on Twitter. 

"Dear Josh Hamilton, How you are being treated by the 'Devils' is shameful. F*ck AA. Have a drink and go hit some bombs!"

We're gonna guess AA is going to respectfully disagree with Mr. Sheen's position. We're calling 'em for comment -- stay tuned.

update_graphic_red_bar  12:00 PM PST -- AA says it does not comment on statements made by individuals ... and will not respond to Sheen.  update_grey_gray_bar

Adrien Broner

BANGS BACCARAT TABLE

... After Massive Win

5/4/2015 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here's footage of boxing superstar Adrien Broner GOING ABSOLUTELY BERSERK after winning at the baccarat table in Vegas Sunday night ... yelling, screaming and AIR HUMPING the table. 

It's unclear how much cash Broner had on the table in the high roller's room at the MGM Grand -- but it must have been A LOT ... because any normie woulda been kicked out of the place in a heartbeat. 

The video is pretty hilarious ... Broner starts yelling about how he "f**ked this town up" with "no condoms" ... while thrusting his junk into the table. 

Congrats. 

BTW -- Broner's weekend was definitely eventful ... here's video of AB pounding a whole lotta tequila at a post-fight party.

Call it kismet, or karma, or whatever ... there's a chance Rachel Uchitel and Tiger Woods will go another round.

Rachel tells us she just broke up with baseball star Bret Boone, days after Tiger called it quits with Lindsey Vonn.

So the question ... does Mistress #1 still have a hankerin' for the golfer with a roving eye?

Sources close to Rachel say she told them, "We both loved each other very much," but adding, "It was humiliating and devastating to have to break up that way."

Now the opening ... Rachel says, "He would have to do some major apologizing to get back in my good graces, that's for sure."

No word from Tiger, but remember, when he was banging Rachel he was at the top of his game.

EXCLUSIVE

At least ONE Mayweather went down this weekend ... Floyd's father ... who ate it HARD during a pre-fight concert ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Floyd Mayweather Sr. got up onstage and did his best James Brown impression to the tune of "Sex Machine" at the Fiesta Rancho Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday. 

But while he was lettin' loose -- he lost his footing ... and went crashing down to the dance floor. 

The good news -- like a true pro, the 62-year-old popped RIGHT BACK UP and continued to dance ... even busting out the signature James Brown "Camel Walk" dance move.

Britney Spears

Beach Football

Guess That Ankle Is Okay!

5/4/2015 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0504-britney-spears-football-beach-splash-fix-5Britney Spears' bum ankle kept her from performing Friday and Saturday night in Las Vegas, but it didn't keep her from playing beach football on Sunday!

Brit ditched the soft cast she had on her left ankle on Friday -- and hit the sand in Malibu to toss around the ol' pigskin with bf Charlie Ebersol.

After rolling her ankle Wednesday night, Brit cancelled her weekend shows, per doctor's orders.

Just a guess, but beach football probably was NOT what the doc ordered.

NFL's Chris Johnson

Reunites w/ Vince Young

EXCLUSIVE

It's been 5 years since they played on the same squad back in Tennessee ... but Chris Johnson and Vince Young reunited in Hollywood last night ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

The ex-QB, RB combo hit up Katsuya where they caught up over some of the most expensive sushi in town.

On the way out, we asked Chris about reports that the Dallas Cowboys might be interested in signing him this season -- and he seemed to think Big D would be a helluva fit. Ditto for Vince. 

Stay tuned ...

American Pharoah Is Gonna Get ...

Sooo Laid!!!

5/4/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

American Pharoah is gonna be more like American Gigolo after this weekend -- 'cause now that he's a Kentucky Derby champ, he's gonna get sooooo much horse ass ... so says his trainer Bob Baffert

The legendary horse trainer touched down at LAX after watching A.P. dominate at Churchill Downs -- Baffert's 4th time winning the Derby -- and told us Pharoah's stud value just went through the roof. 

"He's gonna get a lot of action," Baffert said. 

Of course, Pharoah still has to get through the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes before he becomes a professional impregnator -- but if he wins those too ... it'll raise his price EVEN MORE! 

Ladies love a winner. 

Manny Pacquiao

Aunt Claims

Fight Was Fixed

5/3/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was unanimous in everyone's eyes, but Manny's aunt and cousins are steadfast ... the fight was fixed.

Aunt Lilia and crew were leaving the Mandalay Bay on Sunday when our photog asked whether Manny was cheated, remember the boxer felt he had won the fight. His family went 5 steps further and claimed the whole thing was rigged and people got paid off. 

They weren't done... they also trash talked Floyd.

TMZ Sports got Aunt Lilia back in March when she belted out the signature tune from 'Frozen." She might want to take some advice ... let it go.
