Will Smith

Cops Sweep House

For Michelle Obama Shindig

10/23/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Will Smith
and Jada Pinkett Smith got a visit from L.A. County Sheriff's deputies Monday, who were there to secure the property for a little lunch the Smiths are throwing for the First Lady of the U.S. of A.

Will, Jada and Salma Hayek are hosting the $2,500-a-head lunch for Michelle Obama this Thursday. That's the bargain basement price. If people want their pic taken with Michelle Obama, the price of admission goes up to $10k a couple -- the good news, that includes lunch.

Several units from the Emergency Operations Bureau of the Sheriff's Dept. showed up to sweep the grounds ... inside and out. 

The Smiths live in Calabasas, behind a massive gate with a long, winding road that leads to the main house. Sheriff's deputies -- along with Secret Service -- were everywhere, looking for possible security breaches.

Omg.....these celebrities think they're walking around in obamas back pocket simply Bc they're black. Makes me sick! As if all of a sudden they're political Einstein's. And obama goes along with it by catering to them. Very unprofessional. They also comment "ill just call the pres" when they want their own way. Ex: halls berry. She doesn't like the paps so she States shes going to call obama and get them in "trouble" ummmm...obama has a JOB to do and its not being your personal assistant!

If I ever get that filthy rich, I never want a huge 'compound' like that. It's just too much maintenence/too much to take care of.
I'd much rather have a modest house/condo in several spots around the World: East coast, West coast, a few places in Europe, Aisa, Australia, etc.

That compound looks like a casino in the southwest.

WOW! That is one heck of an estate. Why would a couple w/ two kids need something so enormous other than to show how successful we are? It must cost a fortune to maintain every month.

Don't gripe about where and how celebrities live. It's the normal everyday people that enables them to live that way. Nobody holds a gun to your head and makes you buy a ticket to the movies..The Smith's can invite anybody to lunch that they choose. People invited to a fund raiser have the option of declining...

And let me guess, that 10K people pay to have a picture with Michelle, won't go toward any charity or national debt, but in the pockets of her and Barack...

There's a problem here    

Hopefully that little gay-like-her-mother child Willow won't be there. If she is maybe the Obama girls can teach her a few things about humility. For the record, I'd say the same for Romney's grandchildren teaching her so STFU with your comments.

See that little pump house next to the pool in the picture? That's how big my house is.

TMZ is politically clueless.

The overhead shot looks like a mall, not a house. Seems crazy to do something like this in a residential area - imagine how pissed the neighbours will be.

Really? Scientologists freak you out, but Mormons don't? Teegeeack is less believable than Kolob? Mormonism is more like Scientology than Christianity.
