Justin Bieber took his Can-Am Spyder into Bev Hills Thursday ... and when traffic got too congested for his taste, he maneuvered it onto the sidewalk where he rode illegally ... almost hitting someone.
Watch the video closely ... you'll see Bieber comes off the sidewalk at an intersection, and comes close to creaming an elderly woman with a walker.
He clearly doesn't care ... because seconds later he's rocking out to music as he waits at a light.
BTW ... Bieber's on probation for the egg throwing incident, which means he's not allowed to violate any laws. Lucky for him ... no cops in sight.
LOOK AT ME!
I'm Lookin' at Chris

8:47 A.M. PDT -- We're told the game was a Roc Nation charity event. Rihanna was scheduled to be there and Chris was supposedly a "surprise appearance."
Rihanna is ridiculous ... and thirsty like Moses wandering the desert.
She showed up in the front row at a charity basketball game Thursday ... eyes trained on ex-BF Chris Brown.
Now that she's with Drake again and not Chris Brown again ... you'd think she wouldn't fuel the fire. But then again, who are we kidding?
It's a special kind of insult to Karrueche ... who's back with Chris after being repeatedly humiliated by whatever continues to transpire between him and Rihanna.
Your move Karrueche.

WHO'D YOU RATHER?
8/22/2014 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tyson Beckford trashed Justin Bieber saying he wasn't man enough to bang his ex-girlfriend Shanina Shaik long term ... saying "little boys cant have grown man toys."
So here's a shirtless shot of a 20-year-old Bieber showing off his fresh newly sprouted muscles (left) and a perfectly aged 43-year-old Beckford showing off his fully torqued torso.
The real question is ...

Little boys can't have grown man toys ... is what Tyson Beckford said about Justin Bieber ... and it's AWESOME!
A somewhat drunk Beckford was leaving 1Oak in West Hollywood ... when our photog asked him about Justin hanging out with his ex-GF Shanina Shaik on a yacht in Ibiza.
Beckford then said things about Shanina, himself and most of all the Biebs that rank among the 10 most awesome celeb comments in 2014.
YOU GOTTA WATCH THIS VIDEO!
We anxiously await Bieber's Instagram response.
In other news...
The former reality star began working at a strip club about a month ago, but claimed it was all for "research."
Wait 'til you see how much dough she raked in.
Muzzles Nick in Divorce!
8/22/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mariah Carey has gagged Nick Cannon -- but not in a good way. He's not allowed to say boo about their divorce ... or else.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Nick and Mariah's lawyers hashed out a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce ... and it's completely one-sided.
Nick is barred from saying anything about the split. If he does, there are severe financial penalties. But Mariah has the right under the agreement to announce the split on her terms.
Nick is clearly following orders ... check out the video from NYC Thursday -- he zipped it.
Nick is allowed to say they're now living separately ... which he's already done. But he cannot say anything about the divorce.
As TMZ first reported ... the divorce is a "done deal" ... the property settlement and child custody have already been hashed out.
Freaks Unleashed Broke His Back
8/22/2014 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A guy who took his son to a Korn concert claims unruly fans went nuts during "Freak on a Leash" and a crowd surfer nailed him and broke his back.
A dude named Kenneth Miller wanted to treat his son -- who was celebrating his 17th birthday -- to a Korn concert in Maryland.
Miller felt he had nothing to worry about, because there were signs posted saying "Crowd Surfing Prohibited."
So imagine his surprise when he got nailed. Miller says he felt a snap in his upper back and despite the intense pain he had to flee for his life, crawling on his hands and knees to the entrance.
And get this ... Miller says when he got to the front door he got accusations but no sympathy -- security asked him if he was drunk.
Miller is suing Live Nation and the venue for a million bucks.
Katie Holmes and Suri
Moving, Moving Back, Back to Cali
8/22/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katie Holmes has left NYC and moved to Black Beverly ... aka Calabasas, CA.
Our real estate sources tell us ... Katie just plunked down $3,795,000 on a 6,000 square foot home in The Oaks ... the fancy area where Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian live. Other residents include Katherine Jackson and her brood, Toni Braxton, Romeo, Mitch Richmond. Tyga recently moved out.
It was a super secret deal ... with a confidentiality agreement that socked anyone who violated it with a $1 million penalty.
Katie and Suri are already in the home. We're told Katie made the move for 2 reasons -- she wants back in Hollywood for her career, and she thinks Calabasas is a better place than NYC to raise Suri.
The cul-de-sac where she lives is populated by lots of kids around her 8-year-old daughter's age.
Weeks before escrow closed, Suri and her bodyguard went to a San Fernando Valley rescue shelter and picked out a chihuahua she named Maple, but they didn't pick it up because they were going to be gone until last week, when they moved in. We don't know if they picked up the pooch.
Massive Cop Screw Up
In Doppelganger Meth Bust
8/21/2014 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Scott Weiland is the victim of a series of screw-ups as well as incredible deception. Cops now tell TMZ they were WRONG -- the guy who's been in custody for meth possession and burglary for A MONTH is NOT who they thought it was -- Scott Weiland.
TMZ posted a story late Thursday that Weiland was currently behind bars after allegedly stealing razors from a Bev Hills drug store in late July. The Bev Hills cops said when they searched him, they found meth.
Apparently the guy said he was Scott, and cops believed him.
BHPD gave us a written statement, titled "Celebrity Arrest," which read, "The suspect, former Stone Temple Pilots band member Scott Weiland (46 years of age), was taken into custody..."
The man has been in L.A. County Jail since July 26, unable to post $95,000 bail.
After we posted the story ... Scott posted a video on Facebook of himself at an L.A. recording studio ... to show he was NOT in jail.
We then called the Sheriff's Dept. back but they were unwavering, telling us they did a "physical check" on the inmate and insisted Scott "was definitely in custody."
Oops. The BHPD got back to us late Thursday night and said they made a BIG mistake ... the inmate is actually a 44-year-old guy named Jason Michael Hurley. They discovered it through belated FBI fingerprint analysis, even though he's been locked up since July 26.
We'll give the cops this ... the guy does have red hair.
Wears Fiancee's Name at Strip Club
8/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Hart dispensed with the formality of introducing his fiancee to his ex-wife at the strip club Monday night ... because he had her name plastered on his body.
We got photos of Kevin at Magic City strip club in ATL ... where he and fiancee Eniko Parrish dropped $40K to celebrate their engagement. But check out Kevin's shirt ... with Eniko's name emblazoned on it.
As we reported ... Kev's ex, Torrei, was partying in the club that night with her "Atlanta Exes" co-stars ... and while she and Kevin never spoke, we're pretty sure she got his message.
Draya Michele Sued
She May be Victim
Of Smear Campaign
8/22/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Draya Michele just got sued by a club that had claimed she cancelled a gig because there were too many gay people ... but there's now evidence she may be the victim of a smear campaign.
TMZ broke the story ... a VIP hostess at Penthouse nightclub claimed Draya showed up for a scheduled event August 10, surveyed the crowd and then homophobically groused there were too many "f**s" and "d**es." The hostess said Draya stormed out, making the night a disaster.
But in the club's lawsuit ... there is not a word mentioned about homophobic comments. In fact ... the lawsuit doesn't even say Draya showed up. It says they got a text from her saying she was too tired to show.
The story in the lawsuit syncs up with the one Draya told us ... that she never showed up because she was sick. She also told us the club owner threatened to trash her in the media for being a no show.
The question ... did the owner make good on his threat?
