Golden State Warriors Shade Cavaliers ... With Reversible Championship Rings

10/17/2018 6:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

Won't be hard for the Warriors to remember trouncing LeBron James the last two years ... 'cause they just got diamond, gold and sapphire bling to make sure they NEVER forget it!!!

Golden State unveiled its 2018 NBA Championship Rings on opening night Tuesday -- and the ice is FULL of reminders of how they overthrew the King ... two years in a row.

"Bristle texture" signifying the 4-0 sweep in the 2018 Finals? Check.

Two gold-and-diamond Larry O'Brien trophies for the back-to-back wins over the Cavs? They're there.

A "Back 2 Back" slogan engraved in the gold? Yup.

OH ... and the freakin' top IS REVERSIBLE -- because, ya know, back-to-back over Cleveland and all that.

As for the practicality of that whole unscrewing top thing ... not everyone was a fan -- Shaq said on air, "Why would you want your ring to open up???"

By the way, overall a good night for the Warriors -- they beat the OKC Thunder 108 to 100. 

Ariana Grande, Pete Davidson You Get the Ring ... I Get the Pig

10/16/2018 7:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called it quits, and that usually means dividing up the pots and pans, or in their case a super expensive engagement ring and a pet pig.

Sources close to Ariana tell us she's already returned the nearly $100k engagement ring Davidson gave her back in June. The ring -- a 3.03 carat diamond set in platinum -- was a one of a kind, made specifically for Grande, and took weeks to complete. We're told there was no struggle over who'd keep the ring. He bought it in contemplation of marriage, and she was quick to fork it over.

Piggy Smallz -- the couple's teacup pig they adopted last month -- became a signature of their relationship ... in fact, Davidson got a tattoo of Smallz on his torso shortly after she became part of their family.

Here's the thing. Ariana bought the pig and it was really hers from the get-go, so she's keeping it ... again, no fight over the porker. 

TMZ broke the story ... Ariana and Pete ended their engagement over the weekend. We're told the death of Ariana's former boyfriend, Mac Miller, was a breaking point for the couple's relationship ... and the split was a long time coming.

Exclusive Details

Offset's not slowing down just 'cause Cardi B's birthday has come and gone ... he's still dropping tons of cash for his new wife ... for some super expensive jewelry.

We're told the Migos rapper is giving the "I Like It" rapper a necklace, charm bracelet and Kulture's name emblazoned on a set of earrings. Offset reached out to Pristine Jewelers' owners Avi and Ofir 2 months ago to plan something special for Cardi's 26th birthday.

A post shared by Avi (@pristine_jewelers) on

The 3 pieces are 100 carats strong in diamonds. Offset flew out the jewelers to personally hand over the cache to Cardi ... who couldn't contain herself and flaunted the sparkle at parties last weekend.

Cardi also sported the new bling Saturday night when she performed at Drake's concert. All in all ... we're told Offset dropped over six figures. And, that's just the tip of the birthday iceberg. Remember ... Offset also gave Cardi a Lambo earlier this month.

No word yet if Cardi's sexual birthday request was fulfilled.

Kim Kardashian West Blinged Out ... 2 Years After Paris Robbery

10/10/2018 6:53 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian West is back in the jewelry game ... almost 2 years to the day after being bound, gagged, held at gunpoint and robbed of more than $6 million in bling. 

Kim was at a Tiffany & Co. party Tuesday night in NYC, where she was dripping in blinding bling that she showed off on her IG story.

Ms. West, who was accompanied by a security dude, made it clear the jewels weren't hers ... they were loan-outs for the evening. 

She's been relatively jewelry free since she was robbed at gunpoint in a Paris hotel room. She vowed at the time to shun these extravagances in the name of safety ... but now she's taking baby steps back to where she started. 

As for security ... we only see one guard at her side, but Tiffany typically has a swarm of undercover security in the joint. 

Cardi B Princess Kulture Gets a Throne ... Take One Sparkly Seat!!!

10/8/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If the crystal shoe fits, Cardi B's baby is gonna wear it, along with her own blinged-out mini throne ... TMZ has learned.

Baby Kulture recently got a baby rocking chair as well as a super fancy pair of baby shoes as gift from Sony, Cardi's record label. Sources tell us the chair is covered with nearly 26,000 rhinestones and is valued at $1,500.

Of course, Kulture will be rocking bloody shoes -- expensive and red-bottomed, featuring 1,450 Swarovski crystals. They run about $200.

We're told Sony reached out to Angela's Fantasy Creations about a month ago to commission the pieces, which they wanted to give to Cardi as a gift after she gave birth. The chair took the full month to create, but the shoes were made within a day.

The chair has Kulture Kiari Cephus' initials inscribed in rhinestones. Our sources say the baby shoes were a bonus gift, suggested by AFC. 

At only 3 months old, KKC won't be able to use the chair or shoes for a minute -- but soon enough, the kid can take a royal seat.

LeBron James, Viola Davis Targeted By Celebrity Burglars ... LAPD Says

10/2/2018 3:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

The LAPD says the suspects who have been raiding the homes of celebrities in L.A. had a list of a dozen more stars they were targeting including LeBron James, Viola Davis and Matt Damon

... and cops say the suspects had already obtained the addresses of their famous targets. 

As we previously reported, cops had arrested one of the suspects who had allegedly hit the homes of Yasiel PuigRihanna, Christina Milian and L.A. Rams star Robert Woods ... but now, officials say they've arrested 3 more people. 

Of the 4 people in custody ... 2 of them are 19-year-old men, one is an 18-year-old man and the other is a 34-year-old woman. 

The female suspect is the MOTHER of one of the teenage men, according to LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza

And, that's not all ... cops believe there are more people involved in the burglaries and investigators are currently on the hunt to catch them too. 

In total, cops say the burglary crew has already hit more than 24 homes -- with at least 12 more rich and famous targets in their sights. 

The key to solving the case ... cops say Robert Woods' neighbor made the initial call to report the robbery at his house and when they found the first suspect, the found items connected to the other high profile cases. 

In total, cops say the group stole more than $1 MILLION in property -- including $50,000 cash, watches, purses and a vehicle. Cops say one of the suspects also had a firearm.

Cops are asking the public to help strengthen their case against the suspects by identifying the stolen objects and giving information about the suspects and other possible crimes.

Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Bling ... Diamonds, Rubies & Sapphire!

10/2/2018 6:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

The Capitals' first-ever Stanley Cup came with boobs, booze, F-bombs and even a baby for captain Alex Ovechkin ... and on Monday night -- it came with a boat-load of diamonds too!!!

Ovi, T.J. Oshie and the rest of the squad picked up their championship rings -- and yeah, they're icy.

The team says they feature 252 diamonds, 35 rubies and a big-ass sapphire ... all set into a 14-karat white and yellow gold ring.

The inside is engraved with the scores of the series that led them to the cup too. Pretty cool, right??

It's the diamond-topper to a Washington summer that kicked off with a boob flash during the cup ceremony ... followed by an F-bomb-laced parade -- and finished with LOTS of booze.

No word yet on how the ring will look on Brooks Orpik's jacked-up hand.

Jermall Charlo Bag Thief Suspect Catches Break ... After Officials Find She Helps Sick Kids

9/20/2018 12:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

The woman who stole a Louis Vuitton bag filled with cash and jewelry from pro boxer Jermall Charlo just caught a huge break ... in part 'cause officials say she's a pediatric nurse!!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Charlo was partying at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club in Manhattan last March when he got into a fight with another group of people ... and left his bag unattended.

Sources say the bag had a $15,000 diamond bracelet, a $75,000 championship ring, a $10,000 Cartier ring and more in it ... and held around $40,000 in cash as well.

A 40-year-old Connecticut woman, Sarah Morin, nabbed the bag ... and after police asked the public for help identifying her -- she turned herself in.

She was facing felony charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property ... but officials say they cut a deal with her on Thursday to let her off easy because the whole thing appeared to be a misunderstanding -- and because she's a nurse.

Officials say Morin was given the bag to watch by an associate of Charlo's ... and while she bolted from the club with the bag -- she did return it with the jewelry ... and appeared to try to do so even prior to being contacted by police.

Officials say even though no cash was returned ... they were unable to verify if there was even any in the bag.

Officials also say her status as a pediatric nurse who works with children with cancer influenced their decision to let her walk with just a disorderly conduct charge.

Bottom line ... as long as Sarah keeps her nose clean for a year -- the case will be dismissed.

Amber Rose I Think I Know Who Took My Ring ...

9/17/2018 2:26 PM PDT

Amber Rose seems to have a hunch about who might've stolen her engagement ring from Wiz Khalifa, but stops short of naming anyone in particular for one very good reason.

We got Amber Monday heading into LAX and asked if there were any suspects yet in the case of her missing engagement ring. As we first told you, she filed a police report late last week. It doesn't sound like cops have zeroed in on a perp yet, but Amber says she's on the case. 

She hints she's already got a short list of suspects -- but says she's still gathering proof.

It also seems like whoever did it might've been close to Amber, 'cause she says this wasn't a security issue. We know she's already addressed that.

BTW, Amber's got a message for the person or people who have the $150k ring. And, it's pretty damn simple ... 

Amber Rose Help, My Wiz Khalifa Engagement Ring was Jacked!!!

9/17/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The engagement ring Wiz Khalifa gave Amber Rose more than 6 years ago has gone missing ... and cops are on the hunt.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Amber filed a police report Thursday with LAPD after she went looking for the ring in her closet but it was nowhere to be seen. We're told the last time Amber eyeballed it was sometime last month.

Our law enforcement sources say the report lists the value of the engagement ring -- given to Amber after Wiz proposed to her back in March 2012 -- at around $150k. BTW, they split in September 2014.

And, here's what's complicating the search -- we're told Amber has tons of people coming in and out of her house, so it's hard to say exactly when the ring went missing.

In any event ... Amber's heartbroken, because sources close to her tell us she wanted to pass it on to her and Wiz's son, Sebastian.

Goes without saying ... Amber wants the ring back, badly.

NBA's Chris McCullough Shells Out $100k For Iced Tea ... Chain

9/13/2018 7:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

With a nickname like Brisk, you gotta look the part ... and that's exactly what Chris McCullough did ... droppin' a ton of cash for his new chain -- a Lipton Brisk Iced Tea can!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... the 2015 1st-round pick wanted something that would symbolize his unique nickname, so he hit up Moses the Jeweler in NYC to hook him up with the one-of-a-kind piece.

We're told the piece -- which is made with 14k white gold and heart and arrow cut diamonds -- took about 6 MONTHS to complete due to all the details.

BTW -- Moses is the same dude who made a $150k gold chain of Larry David's face for producer and manager David Weintraub.

So naturally, his stuff ain't gonna come cheap. We're told Brisk dropped $100k for the piece.

Now, that's icy.

NFL's Stefon Diggs Buys Venti Starbucks Chain ... We're Open All Day!

9/12/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Forget an iced latte, Stefon Diggs just got an iced out Starbucks chain -- and it's all because the dude is OBSESSED with the coffee house ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

In case you didn't know ... the Minnesota Vikings star WR is a self-proclaimed Starbucks addict (he even wore Starbucks-themed cleats against Seattle last season).

But, Diggs decided to take it one step further ... hitting up Al the Jeweler from Labelle Jewelry in Totowa, NJ to create a diamond-studded tribute to the java joint.

Al tells TMZ Sports the piece -- which features more than 1,000 emeralds and VS diamonds -- took over a month to complete. We're told Diggs loved the finished product more than an espresso macchiato (and who doesn't love those?).

Al -- who works with huge stars like Jarvis Landry and Terrance Williams (to name a few) -- was tight-lipped on how much Diggs spent on the chain ... but our sources estimate it to be around $15k.

Oh, and we're also told one of the reasons Stefon got the piece was because, like Starbucks, he's "open all day."

Post Malone Target of Home Invasion Robbery ... 1 Person Assaulted

9/10/2018 6:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gun-toting thugs invaded Post Malone's home -- or so they thought -- attacking one person while shouting for the rapper, but the problem is ... Post doesn't live there anymore.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 3 male suspects smashed a front window a little after midnight on September 1 and entered the San Fernando Valley house. We're told a resident living there was pistol whipped.

We're told one of the 3 men yelled, "Where's Post Malone?!" ... before stealing a bunch of cash, jewelry and cell phones ... about $20k worth. The barking out of Post's name makes it clear they were targeting him, but it's been months since he lived there.

We're told the people living there now have no connection to Post.

And, get this ... cops are trying to determine if the hit is tied to another celebrity home invasion just hours later. TMZ broke the story ... suspects stole a safe from a home where Rae Sremmurd was staying

Both home invasions came after a busy couple weeks for thieves in the same area. Wiz Khalifa, Bella Thorne, Christina Milian, Yasiel Puig and John Mayer have all been victims of burglaries or attempted burglaries.
