7/13/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE



Justin Bieber
wasn't traveling light when he took off for the Bahamas to pop the question to Hailey Baldwin ... he had a huge and pricey rock on him!

We spoke with Jack Solow -- the owner of Solow & Co. -- about the backstory of Hailey's engagement ring. He tells us he originally met JB through his manager Scooter Braun, a close family friend of his, and Bieber reached out to him a few weeks ago about buying a ring.

We're told he decided on a large, elongated oval-shaped diamond between 6 to 10 carats ... and Jack met Justin at his hotel in NYC to deliver it right before Bieber and Hailey left for the Bahamas.

Solow wouldn't spill the beans on the final price tag, but sources tell us it was around half a mil.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin proposed to Hailey Saturday night at their resort in front of the other guests, weeks after getting the blessing from her father.

She said yes.

YG Arrested for Robbery ... In Vegas Casino

7/13/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG's facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly yanking a dude's chain off his neck and taking off with the diamond-laced pendant ... and we're told there's video evidence too.

The rapper was in a Vegas court Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in. YG was hit with felony robbery and he was released after posting $20k bail. 

Vegas police tell us ... the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We're told the guy told YG he's not a real celeb ... and casino's surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.

We're told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant -- valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 -- before taking off.

We broke the story ... the alleged victim is also suing YG, claiming he had his goons beat him up before he snatched his jewelry. The guy wants at least $250k.

LeSean McCoy Called Cops On GF In 2017 ... Over Jewelry Dispute

7/12/2018 1:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeSean McCoy called police on Delicia Cordon in July 2017 after an argument over jewelry -- with the NFL star claiming she refused to return several high-end items she had borrowed.

It's all in police reports obtained by TMZ Sports ... which show cops responded to at least 3 incidents at their Georgia home over the past year.

But the most interesting incident took place on July 3, 2017 -- when the NFL star called the Milton Police Dept. to the home after a "domestic dispute" with Cordon.

When cops arrived, they saw McCoy standing in front of a large mound of D's clothes -- and he explained that they had been having issues and had broken up after she accused him of cheating on her. 

Then McCoy brought up the issue of jewelry. Here's the quote from the police incident report.

"He went on to advise us that jewelers often times loan them high end jewelry items to wear for events. He stated that Cordon had some of these jewelry items and had not returned them."

"He stated that he has asked her multiple times for them but she has not yet returned them."

According to the police report, McCoy expressed serious concern that Cordon might make false accusations about him.

"He stated that he was trying to be very careful about being around her given the climate of domestic abuse in his profession."

Cops eventually spoke to Cordon. At the time, neither party made any allegations of physical abuse. 

The case could be relevant since Cordon claims the assailant who broke into her home and pistol whipped her on July 10, 2018 demanded specific items of jewelry. Cordon told police she believed McCoy was behind the attack.

As for the 2 other police calls to the house, Cordon called cops over a heated argument with McCoy on April 11. And again on June 1, when McCoy's mother came to the home with a crew of people to try to remove property from the house without Cordon's consent.

Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin This Ring Ain't Goin' Anywhere

7/11/2018 8:09 AM PDT

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are making sure her engagement ring doesn't slip off her finger because one of their first stops after getting back to NYC was at a jeweler.  

The Biebs and Baldwin looked super chill and blissed out Tuesday evening as they waited for Hailey's ring to get resized inside Pristine Jewelers. Gotta say ... Justin's acing the fiance thing so far -- he gave Baldwin a shoulder massage while they were waiting.  

She seemed reluctant to even briefly remove the ring. Still no word on the size or cost of her ring -- not that it matters. Hailey and Justin haven't stopped glowing since he popped the question this past weekend in the Bahamas.

We spoke with Avi and Ofir from Prestine who tells us JB also got a white gold ring of his own and picked up a white diamond encrusted Patek Philippe watch. 

The couple did some window shopping while they waited. Wedding bands, anyone?

Hailey Baldwin There's the Ring ... Looks Good, Justin!

7/8/2018 3:10 PM PDT

Justin Bieber appears to have spared no expense for Hailey Baldwin's engagement ring ... 'cause that thing is HUGE.

The newly engaged couple was seen hanging out at Nippers Bar & Grill in the Bahamas the day after he proposed to her Saturday night, and she was flashing her new hardware.

Hailey's wearing a fat diamond ring on THAT finger in the open, and we gotta say ... it looks like a hell of a rock. Hard to say exactly how big it is, but there's no question the ring is sizable. They danced their hearts out on the beach in celebration ... so it'd seem she digs it.

We broke the story ... Justin got on bended knee for Hailey in front of guests at the resort they're staying at while vacationing in the Bahamas. Cameras were forbidden during the special moment ... for which, of course, she said yes. 

Selena Gomez, meanwhile, doesn't seem to have a care in the world about the news. She's living it up in New York ... on a boat ... laying out in the sun and whatnot.

Anyway ... congrats to the happy couple!!

EXCLUSIVE

Porsha Williams tried playing it coy when our camera guy straight-up wanted to know if she and her BF were shopping for engagement rings ... keyword: tried. 'Cause, all signs pointed to them hunting for a rock.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star and her boo after she met with Richie Rich from the Leon Diamond jewelry store in NYC and we had to ask ... was she looking at engagement rings? It's interesting ... Porsha's kept her relationship on the super DL for some time now and only made subtle hints she's in a relationship.

Just a few days ago, reports surfaced outing Porsha's new man as Atlanta businessman Dennis McKinley. She's also been ending her Instagram captions with #DM. And, that's the same guy we saw her holding hands with as she left the jewelry joint.

Where there's smoke ...

Katharine McPhee and David Foster are back in the U.S. after their European vacation and made an interesting first stop after their trip.

The couple -- dressed pretty casually -- was spotted in Tribeca, but reportedly made their way to a jeweler in Midtown Thursday, a few days after getting engaged.

Foster popped the question in Anacapri, Italy and Katharine confirmed the engagement by posting a text exchange where someone described her ring as "beautiful and classic." We also have a photo of her showing it off at dinner earlier this week.She was wearing a ring on her ring finger Thursday afternoon, so it's possible she was getting it resized ... or maybe they were shopping for Foster.

The two began dating last year. It'll be Foster's fifth, and Katharine's second marriage.
