Nipsey Hussle My Chain Is Dope ... Seriously, Light It Up

8/23/2016 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0823-Nipsey-Hussle-tmzNipsey Hussle never has to worry about running outta chronic as long as he's wearing his new 100 percent smokable gold chain.

Nipsey's new piece is every stoner's dream ... 100 grams of weed rolled into joints with gold papers, and then linked together. The giant pendant is toke-ready too!

The handiwork was done by professional joint roller Tony Greenhand -- yes, that's a job, and you gotta love his name. We're told the papers alone cost $300, and the pendant is loaded with $3,000 worth of pot ... retail price, of course.

Nispey got it gratis though. It's just a matter of time before that chain's reduced to a choker, and then a bracelet ... a ring ... paper clip ... 


Meek Mill I Dreamed Big For My New Chain ... $500k Big

8/23/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meek Mill doesn't seem too concerned Drake's still dragging his name through the mud ... he's too busy dropping half a mil on a new iced-out chain.

As we reported ... Meek dropped $380k last week for one of the first Bentley Bentaygas to hit U.S. soil, but it's chump change compared to the $540k he just spent on his new neck bling.

The chain is covered in 250 karats and was made by Shyne Jewelers. It's adorned with the letters DC -- a bedazzled shout-out to his Dream Chasers label.

We're told Meek waited months for the piece and finally picked it up in Philly.

So, technically, Drake's not the only one dropping weight in Meek's hometown.

Meek Mill Gets Free Watch!! For Buying $380k Bentley

8/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meek Mill knows a good BOGO when he sees one ... because he scored a sweet bonus just for dropping a few hundred thousand for a new luxurious and rare SUV.

Sources close to Meek tell us the rapper paid $380,000 to get a Bentley Bentayga as soon as it rolled out of the factory. They've only made 75 of 'em and we're told Meek got the only one in Bev Hills. Why? It does 175 mph, and Bentley says it's the fastest SUV in the world.

The base model goes for $300k, but of course Meek had to have the Mulliner Edition. That's rich people talk for fully loaded. Check out the video ... it's pretty baller, and even has refrigerated consoles.

We're told Bentley threw in a "free" Breitling Bentley edition watch and some limited edition Bentley luggage. What a bargain!

Finally, something new for Meek ... without Nicki's name on it.

8/17/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

U.S. Olympic hero Katie Ledecky got her own private army at the airport in Virginia Wednesday morning -- but that's what happens when you're rockin' 4 GOLD MEDALS AROUND YOUR NECK!!!

The swimming sensation touched down earlier today -- and sported all 5 of her medals through Dulles International Airport (4 gold, 1 silver). 

We counted at least 8 armed cops safely escorting Ledecky through the terminal.

As for Katie, she told us she's gonna take a break from swimming for a couple of weeks -- and if there's anyone who deserves it ... 


Scott Weiland's Widow I'm Cashing in On Our Engagement Ring

8/16/2016 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816-scott-weiland-jamie-weiland-ring-TMZ-FACEBOOK-01Scott Weiland's widow is unloading her engagement rock on eBay, and the starting bid is a steal for any die-hard fans looking to pop the question.

Jaime Weiland, who married Scott in 2013, listed the white gold and diamond band for $8k and then promoted the listing on Facebook. If you're in the market, she says it's 2.74 carats. 

Jaime didn't provide a specific reason for dumping the ring, other than saying she was 8 months into a new chapter of her life, and the time was right. Scott died in December of an overdose, and she has an ongoing lawsuit against his estate for money she claims she's owed under their prenup.

The bling has zero bids right now, but people might be watching till the last minute to keep the price down ... y'know, the ole eBay hustle.

Omarosa -- also an assistant pastor at Weller Street Baptist Church in L.A. -- met John when she was teaching at Howard University ... and we're told they've dated less than a year.

0719-hickok-belt-award-gallery-launch-01Interested in having 84 OUNCES of solid gold hanging around your crotch???

You're in luck ... because Ken Stabler's legendary "Hickok Belt" just hit the auction block.

Stabler was the LAST person to win the belt -- following his spectacular '76 season in which he led the Oakland Raiders to a Super Bowl victory.  

Previous winners include Muhammad Ali, O.J. Simpson, Joe Namath, Jim Brown and Sandy Koufax (he won twice). 

Stabler's belt was displayed at the University of Alabama for years -- but now, it's up for grabs through Pristine Auction

Starting bid -- $20,000 ... but the auction house believes the materials are worth $180,000 alone! 

Good luck! 

Grammy Jewels Delivery Guy Lost $15 Mil of Merch ... Chopard Sues

7/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717-grammy-jewels-getty-2One unlucky Grammy celeb was supposed to get draped in $15 million worth of Chopard jewelry -- but got stiffed when a delivery guy went rogue and lost all the loot ... according to a new lawsuit. 

The Swiss watchmaker and jewelry company says it hired Ferrari Express, Inc. -- no relation to the sports cars -- to transport and safeguard the merchandise back in February ... on the night before the Grammys.

According to the lawsuit, Ferrari's guy decided to take a very costly detour. Chopard says he allegedly brought the van home and parked it on the street -- WITH $15 MILLION in jewels still inside -- in a neighborhood where "vehicle thefts are common."


Naturally, the van and all its contents were gone in the morning. Chopard says Ferrari Express refuses to pay up, so it's suing for the $15 million and then some.  

Major bummer for some celeb though.

0713-shemar-moore-TMZ-01Shemar Moore's 11 seasons worth of tardiness finally paid off for his "Criminal Minds" co-workers ... who just got laced up with some pricey and ironic gifts from the actor.

Shemar left the show last year, but sources on set tell us he surprised his old cast and crew by showing up this week with 379 Swiss made Fortis watches. Each one has his initials and "always on time" stamped on the face -- a clear nod to Shemar NEVER being on time. 

They ain't cheap -- a regular Fortis costs anywhere between $600 to $1500, but maybe he got a deal for buying in bulk.
