welcome back, time is 6:52. today, tmz live premiers on ktvu. the program takes you inside the tmz newsroom, tmz's harvey joining us live from los angeles with more on today's show, i'm glad to see you again, harvey, thanks for getting up early to be with us. >> dave, i got to tell you, sadly, this ain't early. we start at 3:00 in the morning. >> we have something in common, okay. >> i know you're busy, i want to start first, what's the latest on chris brown and the break-up with his girlfriend. what is that? >> this is a bizarre story. chris brown went on the raging attack against his on and off again girlfriend. and was saying, really horrible things about her, but also said essentially he is saying that
she cheating on him when he was in jail, by going to toronto and dating drake. now, that's weired. because if you remember, chris seemed to bury the hatchet with drake at the grammys but reignited this whole feud. drake is totally pissed off. he is livid saying he isn't even his type, and so he is saying, it is not true. chris brown just apologized and he apologized in an erie way. he said he loves, but reacts excessively when he gets his feelings hurt. that brings you back to rehanna. this whole thing is kind of bubbling back to the surface. >> he said some really bad things about her, and about him. thank you for the update.
let's talk about matt wallburg. i heard he wants to become a police officer? >> yeah. you know he went to, or he filed papers to expunge his criminal record in massachusetts, he was convicted in '88 of felony assault and we found out that he wants to become a reserve officer in the l.a. area. and you can't do that if you have a felony on your record because you can't handle guns. so that's why he has gone to court but that's the motivation for it. he is doing this show, this new show called port of l.a. where cops go and inspect containers at the port of l.a. and my sense is that the reserve status has something to do with that show. i'm not positive of that, but i am positive he wants to become a reservist. that's interesting. sounds like shaquille o'neal becoming a reserve cop. harvey, always fascinating to talk to you. good luck with the new show, harvey, the new show. >> by the way, dave, by the
way, i'm really excited, really excited that we're going to ktvu at 4:00. >> me too. >> this is a really interesting, what i love about this show, we'll tell you about the stories we break and a lot that's behind them. i'm going to do a live twitter chat, if you're interested you can log onto twitter @harvey11tmz. don't forget, thank you. do catch tmz live right here every weekday, 4 p.m., followed by the channel 2 news at 5:00. perfect timing. all right, well their story has reached thousands, people, here in the bay area. in fact many viewers donated money to help some young football players from richmond travel all the way to the national championship tournament in florida. a season of 11 wins, just one loss earned them the spot there, and yesterday the
richmond steelers hit the game one. they showed the spirit that has helped them survive the gun violence that they've seen too often in their commute. >> i just think about the people that could have been here, but they are not because they died and got killed. >> you can do anything you put your mind to. >> that was a good thing to think about. the steelers, they lost to their opponent with a final score of 26-6 but they have another chance at a trophy when they play tomorrow. and i heard the message, they are still winners. still winners. >> yeah. >> time is 6:58, another night of violent protests in berkeley. coverage on the looting the vandalism and the arrest as police clash with protestest. and a man injured at a popular san jose restaurant
