Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are trying to do a good thing for the guy who desperately needs a kidney and is trying to score one by dangling a pair of rare Yeezy Boosts ... but there's a problem.
Matt Neal, a 26-year-old Michigan man has Berger's disease, which causes kidney failure. He's on a transplant waiting list but perilously far down. So he came up with the idea of trading his Yeezys for an organ.
Kanye and Kim heard his story and were moved ... they say if he ends up making the trade they'll give him a brand new pair of the impossible to get pricey kicks.
Now the tough news. Federal law makes it illegal for anyone to offer money or merchandise in return for an organ. There's no wiggle room ... the law is clear.
Short story ... Matt needs help. The good news ... Matt's Facebook solicitation has moved lots of people, some of whom say they'll donate a kidney for free, which is totally legal.
Mark Cuban isn't messing around ... he's on the warpath against anyone who dares sell a "hoverboard," and it could be one of his basketball players is about to learn a hard lesson on the subject of crossing his boss.
John Soibatian, Prez of IO Hawk, made the offer Saturday, to give Mark one of his very own. The subtext is great ... Mark just partnered with the guy who owns the patent to the device and has said he's planning on suing everyone who markets a knockoff.
Soibatian apparently thought he could win Mark over by posing with JaVale McGee ... who just signed as center for the Dallas Mavericks -- THE TEAM MARK OWNS!
Mark's response makes it clear ... judgment day is coming. And BTW, what's JaVale thinking?
Elle Fanning's not exactly hauling in Jennifer Lawrence money yet -- she's only 17 -- but she's got a shot at earning that kinda scratch from her next job ... IF she turns in an award winning performance.
Luckily for Dakota Fanning's kid sis there's already some Oscar buzz for "About Ray" -- a movie she's only getting $65,000 to make -- base salary, anyway. That's the bad news.
The good news is Elle's playing a teenage girl transitioning to a boy. In other words, it's exactly the kinda flick Oscar voters tend to eat up ... and that will put a ton of bonus money in her bank account.
According to her contract, Elle gets $100k if she's nominated for and wins a Golden Globe -- and another $167k for an Oscar nod and win!
There's also a $250k bonus if 'Ray' earns $45 million worldwide at the box office -- which would be really impressive for a small budget film.
For your consideration ... a teenager looking to make a buck.
Young Dro has not only royally pissed off a stripper, she says he set her up and got her arrested for weed and an illegal gun.
According to a police report, Dro was in a city near Atlanta in February when he went to a stripper friend and asked to borrow her Cadillac. She agreed, with one condition ... that he pick her up after her shift at the Pink Pony.
Dro stood the stripper up, so she used her OnStar to track down the Caddy, which she found in a parking lot. Turns out cops were interested in the car as well, because they had just seen 2 men wildly driving it. So the stripper and cops showed up at the same time.
PROBLEM: Cops saw a big bag of weed in plain view in the backseat. That triggered a search, which produced a gun that turned out to be stolen.
To the stripper's shock, cops arrested her for the ganja and the gun.
When the stripper got sprung, she filed a grand theft auto report against Dro, and cops arrested him.
Please don't try to adjust your computer screens ... this is NOT a blurry picture of Sheldon from "Big Bang Theory" -- However, there is a big time star being masked by this mysterious mix up ... Can you guess who it is?!
