TMZ’s Dax Holt was here to talk about the latest in entertainment news.
P. Diddy has been arrested for allegedly getting into a fight with a football coach at UCLA … where his son is on the team, TMZ Sports has learned.
We’re told Campus Police took the music mogul into custody early Monday afternoon. Diddy’s son, Justin Combs, is a defensive back on the team. We’re told the fight went down at the UCLA athletic facility.
One source says a strength and conditioning coach was screaming at Justin on the field during a strength and conditioning session. We’re told the coach “was riding Justin, screaming intensely at him.” Diddy watched the whole thing from the sideline.
At some point later, we’re told Diddy confronted the coach in his office and grabbed him. Diddy was arrested for assault.
A source connected with Diddy tells TMZ Diddy himself initially wanted to call police, but the phone was taken out of his hands.
Diddy is still in custody at campus jail.
Britney Spears is once again on the market … she’s split from boyfriend Charlie Ebersol.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ … Britney and Charlie — who had been dating for the past eight months — did not have a messy breakup. It kinda looked like it was because Brit deleted several pics of him from social media, but we’re told it was more that the relationship simply ran its course.
As TMZ first reported, when the pair got together — before their first date, even — Brit’s dad made Charlie sign a non-disclosure agreement … so don’t count on him spilling the beans on the relationship any time soon.
Plus, Ebersol’s no stranger to the fame game — he’s a TV producer whose dad is sports media legend/”Saturday Night Live” co-creator Dick Ebersol.
Mariah Carey’s new boyfriend is so smitten … he’s treating everyone on his yacht to a piece of her.
Australian billionaire James Packer threw a party for Mariah Sunday off the coast of Sardinia. We’re told a bunch of “bougies” were on the boat and the entertainment was all Mariah, all the time. Packer is obsessed with her music and played it the entire evening.
TMZ broke the story … Packer has been pursuing Mariah for months. Here’s what’s weird. We’re told he went to one of her Vegas shows a month and a half ago and hadn’t seen her again until she jumped on his yacht last week. Yet we’re told things got “immediately serious.”
In other words, Packer is in hook, line and sinker. As for Mariah, we’re told she’s game for something serious.
