NFL Star Police Report — ‘Possible Loss Of Teeth’

Filed under: Cedric Benson, TMZ Sports

Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson allegedly beat up his roommate so badly this weekend, the victim thought he was missing teeth … this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.


The roommate, Charles Clavens, told police he was standing on a street corner in Austin, Texas yesterday … when “he was approached by a hostile and aggressive Benson who told Clavens they needed to talk about their problems.”

According to the docs, Clavens claimed he and Benson “began to talk and argue about their living arrangements when all of the sudden Clavens was struck on the left side of his face with a closed fist thrown by Benson.”

“Clavens went on to say that Benson continued to strike him with several more closed fists all over Clavens face resulting in severe injury to his face.”

Clavens told police he was experiencing “severe bleeding from the mouth, possible loss of
teeth and massive swelling of the left cheek.”

Benson was arrested — and was released after posting $10k bond.

Benson has been ordered to stay at least 200 yards from Clavens.



Rachel Returns Hush Money To Tiger, Threatens Gloria

Filed under: Gloria Allred, Rachel Uchitel, Celebrity Justice, Tiger Woods, Jay Lavely, TMZ Sports

TMZ has learned … Rachel Uchitel has given Tiger Woods back most of the settlement money he paid her … and now Rachel is preparing to sue Gloria Allred, the lawyer who struck the deal, allegedly because Gloria sold her out for money.

As TMZ reported, Gloria negotiated a $10 million settlement for Rachel … just hours before Rachel was going to hold a tell-all news conference about Tiger Woods.  The settlement included a confidentiality agreement, which prohibited Rachel from talking about Tiger.

We’ve learned the agreement stated … if Rachel violated the confidentiality clause … she would not only have to return the money she received but Tiger could sue her for damages as well.

Sources tell TMZ … several months ago Tiger’s lawyer, Jay Lavely, contacted Gloria and said they were going after Rachel because they believed she violated the confidentiality agreement by allegedly speaking with TMZ and going on “Celebrity Rehab” to treat her “addition to love” — though she never talked specifically about Tiger on the show.

We’re told Rachel felt strongly she had not violated the agreement, but Gloria allegedly convinced her she would lose if push came to shove, so Gloria struck a deal with Lavely — that Rachel would return the lion’s share of the settlement money.

But our sources say … what has Rachel fuming is that Gloria allegedly made a deal with Jay Lavely — that Gloria would still get all of her attorney’s fees.  Rachel believes Gloria sold her out … allegedly making a deal with Tiger’s lawyer to strong-arm Rachel into giving the money back and in return Gloria would get her fee — a fee Gloria would not have received if Rachel went to arbitration and lost.

We’re told Rachel went along with the deal, but as time went on she felt she had gotten screwed, and then hired a malpractice lawyer who has made a demand on Gloria to either pay Rachel what she gave back or get sued.

Sources tell TMZ … Rachel’s lawyer has given Gloria a deadline, and if Gloria doesn’t ante up … a legal malpractice lawsuit will be filed.

We contacted Gloria, who said, “No comment.”  Ditto Rachel, who was also mum.



Superman & Lois Lane — DUNZO!!!!

Filed under: Superman, Superman, Break-ups

Maria and Arnold … J.Lo and Marc Anthony … and now Superman and Lois Lane are officially KAPUT … TMZ has learned. Seriously.


Sources at DC Comics tell us … the company is rebooting the Superman comic book series in September — with a brand new Superman #1 — in the hopes of creating a new starting point for fans with more modern, relevant story lines.

And there are some HUGE developments … including the fact that Lois and Clark are NOT together. In fact, we’re told Lois has new boyfriend.

But perhaps even more shocking — NO MORE RED UNDERWEAR!!!!  Instead, new Superman (see above photo) will sport an all blue bodysuit with his trademark red cape.

Still, we gotta ask … Is that Kryptonite in his pocket … or is he just happy to see us?



Justin and Selena — Malibu WEDDING Crashers

Filed under: Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez turned a ritzy Malibu beach wedding into a ritzy and AWESOME Malibu beach wedding by crashing the event … and TMZ has video of them kicking it with the bride and groom. 

According to our sources at Rob and Jeanine McCool’s wedding … Bieber and Gomez were strolling on the beach when they heard Justin’s hit “One Less Lonely Girl” playing at the reception — inside the historic and shi shi Adamson House.

We’re told Justin snuck up on some guests — who predictably OMG’d and LOL’d — and then hopped on the mic, saying … “We just crashed it. We heard a party so we decided to just come. So let’s party.”

Beibs and Selena only stayed for about 10 minutes to pose for pics — including some with the happy couple — and then bolted.

Private dance lessons from Mark Ballas usually run $300/hour … but TMZ has learned Kim Kardashian won’t have to pay the guy a cent … because he REFUSES to take her money!


Mark has been hitting the ballroom floor with Kim and her fiance Kris Humphries in preparation for their GARGANTUAN wedding … where the couple plans on performing a waltz for their first dance.

We”re told K&K have been practicing up a storm over the last few weeks — but Kris “is a perfectionist” when it comes to his footwork and has INSISTED on more training.

Kim and Kris have tried to throw some cash at Ballas for all of his help, but the “Dancing with the Stars” pro — who was just nominated for an Emmy — simply won’t take payment from his former celebrity partner.

Bravo: We NEVER Authorized ‘Bible Housewives’

Filed under: Ty Adams, Real Housewives

The Real Housewives of the Bible” insist they answer to a Higher calling — but now, the show’s creator may also have to answer to Bravo … because the network claims they NEVER signed off on the project.

If you haven’t seen the show … it’s because it went straight to DVD …. and it’s also not a reality show … but rather a scripted series with some seriously religious story lines.

Problem is … Bravo holds the trademark on the “Real Housewives” name … and the network claims “Bible Housewives” creator Ty Adams never got permission to use it.

A rep for the network tells TMZ … “Bravo is in no way associated with this project” … adding, “We vigorously protect our trademarks and take appropriate action when necessary.”

So far, it’s unclear if Bravo has contacted Adams over the matter … but it sounds like it’s only a matter of time.
