8/27/2015 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827-russell-westbrook-tmz-instagramOklahoma City Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook is getting a ring even before the NBA season begins -- he's marrying his longtime GF this weekend in a pretty baller setting. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Russell and Nina Earl will walk down the aisle in Beverly Hills on Saturday -- just about a year after they started planning. As we reported, they announced their engagement last September ... when Nina posted a pic of her $700k ring!

We're told the couple is having a low-key ceremony, and wants to keep the exact location under wraps, but trust us ... the wedding pics will be spectacular.

Jerry Bruckheimer

Sued, Handyman Claims

'You Put Me in a Hole!'

8/27/2015 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827_jerry-bruckheimer_TMZJerry Bruckheimer is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood who can make careers, and now a guy is suing him because he couldn't get his foot in the door. 

Isidro Jauregui -- a handyman -- claims he was at Bruckheimer's LA pad in December 2014 when he was invited to come in through the sliding glass door. According to the lawsuit, there was a metal plate at the base of the door, covering a 2-foot hole.

Jauregui says he stepped on the plate and it shifted, sending him down into the hole.  

It's also unclear what injuries he suffered, although he does say they were "severe."

Jauregui doesn't say exactly how much he wants, but worst case scenario ... Jerry can cover it.

Tyga

Major Withdrawal

8/27/2015 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-tyga-stacks-of-cash-bentley-AKMGSI-01Tyga's bank account is still stacked and he wants everyone to know it.

T-Raww walked out of a Calabasas bank Thursday afternoon with a wad of hundos and he made sure to flash it for cameras.

Doesn't look like the nearly $300k he spent on Kylie Jenner's Ferrari and the thousands in back rent he owes are slowing him down in the cash department ... he also sped off in a Bentley.

Caitlyn Jenner

Lawsuit Filed Against Woman Who Died In Crash

8/27/2015 12:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0827_bruce_jenner_accident_splash-2It sounds bizarre on the surface, but the driver of the Lexus who was killed after Caitlyn Jenner plowed into her is being sued for $18.5 MILLION ... claiming she was negligent when her car careened into oncoming traffic and struck a Hummer.

The estate of Kim Howe just got hit with 5 creditors' claims ... filed by the 5 occupants of the Hummer.

As you know, the force and trajectory of initial impact pushed the Lexus into the Hummer on PCH last February. 

In the creditors' claims, the Hummer passengers allege Kim Howe was negligent, claiming she caused the collision. The claims are not specific.

We're told the Hummer occupants will sue Jenner as well at a later time.

Judge Joe Brown -- who made a name for himself during his run on syndicated TV -- is now watching the boob tube from jail. 

We've learned Judge Joe is currently in custody after being sentenced to 5 days for contempt of court.  

Joe was acting as a lawyer in March 2014 -- representing someone in a child support case. When he showed up in court and the clerk informed him they had no record of the case, he lost it, screaming Al Pacino style

The 5 day sentence was delayed for nearly a year-and-a-half, but today, Joe's in jail.

Joanna Krupa

Says Truth is a Defense

In Smelly Vagina Lawsuit

8/27/2015 10:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-krupa-glanville-tmz-01Brandi Glanville may have figured out a way to stave off Joanna Krupa's defamation lawsuit ... by forcing Joanna to come clean about her vaginal odor.

Brandi's lawyer has fired off a series of written questions which Joanna must answer under oath, notably:

"Is it your contention in this lawsuit that your vagina and/or vulva are odorless? If yes, please explain with specificity why your vagina and/or vulva are odorless."

It would seem Brandi and her attorney are going down a path that could lead to some interesting courtroom testimony ... and demonstrations.  

Yes, we'll be livestreaming.

Jason Derulo

Major Groupie Soap Opera ...

Shut Out of the Party!

8/27/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Not everyone gets to party with Jason Derulo -- as one pissed off groupie found out the hard way when he rolled out of the club ... 5 deep with chicks.

This is painful and yet hysterical to watch unfold ... Jason and his crew rolled out of Argyle Nightclub in Hollywood with a flock of groupies ready to party on his custom Sprinter van.

As shirtless Jason settles into his seat, it looks like a good time would be had by all. Almost.

The left out chick did not take it well or quietly, but eventually her friends did text from the van -- which only pissed her off more! Check it out.

Chris Brown

Completed Head Tattoo ...

It's In the Stars!

8/27/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-chris-brown-instagram-01Chris Brown's decided one ridiculously large tattoo on his cabeza isn't enough -- unveiling the sequel to his Greek/Roman goddess ink, but this time his inspiration seems more obvious. 

CB got a big ole bull inked right next to the Venus de Milo(ish?) chick he got the other day, and captioned his Instagram ... "I do what the f**k I want!"

We don't know if Chris is big on astrology, but he IS a Taurus ... so the bull makes as much sense as a head tatt possibly can.

At this point, even Mike Tyson is cringing.

Kim and Kanye

Win Big Settlement

Over Leaked Engagement Video

8/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are even richer today, after settling up with a YouTube founder over a video of their engagement he secretly shot and then leaked online.

TMZ has learned Chad Hurley, the YouTube dude who went on to found MixBit, has agreed to pay K&K $440,000. The couple sued Hurley, claiming he manipulated his way into AT&T Park in San Francisco back in 2013 to witness Kanye's proposal. He even signed a confidentiality agreement.

But Hurley secretly recorded the video and posted it on MixBit.

Kim and Kanye were furious, and their lawyer, Eric George, filed suit claiming Hurley was desperate to find a second act after 2 failed flops following his YouTube sale. 

We're told Hurley must pay the loot within the next few days, and then the lawsuit will be dismissed.

$400k is a fortune to most, but Hurley sold YouTube for $1.6 billion, so he's not hurting.

Jerry Seinfeld

No Lemonade Stand for You!

Cops Shut Down Kid's Biz

8/27/2015 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-seinfeld-lemonade-stand-instagramIf Jerry Seinfeld thought the Soup Nazi was bad ... he must've loved the Lemonade Gestapo busting his son's roadside charity biz out on Strong Island. 

The stand was set up last week in an area of Seinfeld's hood where city code prevents any type of peddling. According to a local report, some neighbors complained about a traffic buildup, and the East Hampton Village PD swooped in to pull the plug.

The stand still managed to raise some cash for Baby Buggy ... Jessica Seinfeld's clothing charity for families in need. She posted a photo of Jerry, their son and his pals assuming the position. 

Straight Outta Hamptons.

Rita Ora

Star-Spangled Nipples

0827_rita_ora_sheer_show_launch2Rita Ora put her love for the good ole U.S. of A. on full display ... on her nipples. 

Ora fell 48 stars short of a true American flag salute after her Wednesday night show at the El Rey Theater in L.A. -- though we doubt she heard a single complaint about it.

Perhaps next time ... Rita can take a few pasty pointers from Miley Cyrus, who definitely wore them better last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

They are a party in the U.S.A.
