Samuel L. Jackson practically had all of Hollywood under the same roof to celebrate his birthday … the star-studded guest list was truly incredible.

Baker Mayfield Triples Down On Hue Jackson Hate ‘I Get To Have My Own Opinion’

Breaking News

Baker Mayfield didn’t regret torching Hue Jackson after Sunday’s game … he didn’t regret doing it again on Monday … and he DEFINITELY didn’t regret doing it a third time Wednesday.

The QB has been SUPER pissed since his ex-coach bolted for the Bengals — refusing to hug the guy after their game Sunday and then blasting him as “fake” on social media a day later.

Baker was given a chance to walk back his comments Wednesday … but dude TRIPLED DOWN on his Hue hate, saying, “I get to have my own opinion on how it transpired and he gets to do what he wants. That’s how it is.”

“I didn’t like the move and people don’t have to care. I’m not looking for anybody’s approval. I don’t regret any of it.”

Of course … Mayfield’s issue is that Hue preached team and unity throughout his stay as Browns coach — but then took the first opening available with the team’s division rival just days later.

Some, like Cleveland legend Jim Brown, refuse to blame the guy for making the move … but Baker’s still clearly ticked about it.

And … if you’re upset about Baker’s hot take — the QB had a message for you, too, on Wednesday.

“I’m not a cookie-cutter quarterback. I never have been, I never will be. I speak my mind, that’s just how I am.”

Translation … DEAL WITH IT!!!

Jim Brown Defends Hue Jackson … He Made A Good Move

EXCLUSIVE

Jim Brown is going to bat for Hue Jackson … telling TMZ Sports the bitterness toward Cleveland’s ex-head coach needs to end.

Of course, Hue took only a few days to join up with the Browns’ rivals — the Bengals — after he got canned in Cleveland … and dudes like Baker Mayfield were REALLY upset about it.

But, Jim tells us the QB and others shouldn’t be … saying Hue made “a good move.”

“No bitterness with him. He’s got a job right away. It tells you that he had a value. But, it didn’t work out with him and the Browns. That’s it.”

As for Baker’s snub of the coach after Cleveland beat Cincinnati on Sunday … Jim sees no controversy there, saying Mayfield just got caught up in the moment of competition.

“When you’re getting ready for a game, you’re getting ready for a game. You’re not trying to make friends.”

As for the Browns themselves … Jim can see a playoff game in their future this season — IF they do just one unlikely thing.

The Browns are 4-6-1 and sitting at the bottom of the AFC North — but they’re definitely NOT mathematically eliminated … only 3 games out of 1st place. 

They’ve got 5 games left — facing the Texans, Panthers, Bengals, Broncos and Ravens. 

Could they win out and clinch a post-season berth? Hey, stranger things have happened …

DeSean Jackson Rodney King Cleat Tribute … For Bucs-49ers Game

Breaking News

DeSean Jackson will wear Rodney King-themed cleats for the Bucs’ game Sunday … featuring the words “Black Lives Matter” and a depiction of a police officer raising a baton.

For the next few weeks, the NFL is allowing players to raise awareness for causes they support using custom kicks as part of the league’s “My Cause, My Cleats” program.

DeSean chose black-and-blue colored spikes for his cause … a clear message he’s trying to help end police brutality in America.

The cleats feature King’s face … the “Black Lives Matter” slogan … Florence and Normandie street signs (a major point of the riots and where Reginald Denny was attacked) … and a shadowy drawing of an officer raising his baton at 5 open hands.

What’s interesting … DeSean’s set to debut the kicks against the 49ers — the team Colin Kaepernick famously started his kneeling protests with to help raise awareness for social injustice in America.

The NFL will allow Jackson to auction off the spikes after the game … with 100 percent of the profits going to the charity of his choosing.

Chuck Liddell Threatens to Smash Rampage Jackson … After Tito Fight

EXCLUSIVE

Chuck Liddell says he wants to avenge his 2007 loss against Rampage Jackson — and, if he gets through Tito Ortiz this weekend, he wants a rematch. 

Rampage defeated Liddell for the UFC light heavyweight title back at UFC 71 in a brutal first-round knockout. 

But, 48-year-old Chuck still has revenge on the brain and tells TMZ Sports, once he smashes Tito at Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 on Saturday in L.A. … he’s got a list of people he wants to fight next. 

Chael Sonnen, Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort are all on the list. 

As for Chuck’s critics who say he looked slow and out of shape at his open workout last week, Iceman tells us they’re straight-up wrong. 

“I hit as hard as I ever have,” Chuck says … “I’m throwing fast and I’m moving and I’m in great shape.”

Chuck also says this fight ain’t about the money — and rumors he’s broke and desperate for cash are crap. 

“My bank account’s fine. My house is nice. My life is great … but I love fighting.”

Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn: Headed For the Altar (Without a Prenup)!

Paris Jackson has been through quite a lot in her young life.

Of course, she’s also enjoyed privileges and opportunities that most folks can only dream of.

We mention this not because we begrudge Paris her wealth and fame but because the latest news about the 20-year-old’s personal life has fans concerned that her personal fortune may be in danger.

Paris has been dating drummer Gabriel Glenn for the past several months.

The couple met when Gabriel was hired into Paris’ band, the Soundflowers.

(Note: Several media outlets have mistakenly reported that Glenn was a member of the Wallflowers, which would make this story way weirder, as Paris was about a year away from being conceived when “One Headlight” came out.)

According to Radar Online, Paris’ family is deeply concerned about her new relationship, primarily because Paris and Glenn are already talking marriage.

“Paris told certain family members that she truly believes that Gabriel is the one and she wants to marry him,” a source close to the Jackson family says.

“She and Gabriel have been going strong for several months and she feels a deep connection with him.”

Most recently, Paris dated Cara Delevingne, and it seems her shift in preference has also been a cause of concern for certain influential family members.

Sadly, Paris’ beloved grandmother has some outdated beliefs, and she’s expressed skepticism about Paris’ ability to make decisions regarding her own sexuality and love life.

“The family is all very confused at this point,” the insider says.

“One second, she is a lesbian and dating; the next second, she is straight and dating her bandmate.”

But despite her apparent confusion, Katherine Jackson is less concerned with granddaughter’s sexuality than with her financial future — a future that she feels is in jeopardy due to Paris’ insistence on getting married without a prenup.

“No one cares what she is everyone just wants to know that she is okay,” says the source.

“Gabriel does not have the best reputation and some of her family members feel like he could be using her.

“They just want her to be careful.”

Sadly, Michael Jackson’s only daughter has been down this road before.

Paris recently dated Michael Snoddy, who was also a musician, and whose flippant attitude has been compared to Glenn’s.

That relationship ended badly, but Paris recovered rather quickly.

As painful as that episode might have been, friends and family are reportedly hoping for a similar outcome with Glenn.
