Desiigner Sued You Crashed Our Ferrari!! That'll Cost Ya $500k

12/6/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-desiigner-tmzDesiigner had no business getting behind the wheel of a rented Ferrari, but since he wrecked it when he did, he needs to cough up some dough ... according to the rental company's lawsuit.

The rental company is suing the "Panda" rapper for destroying a 2014 Ferrari back in June. It had been rented by 2 of his friends, who are also named in the suit.

According to docs ... the friends gave Desiigner permission to drive the whip, and then he crashed it in NJ. The car's valued at $220k, but the company's suing for more than $500k because they say they're going to lose out on future rental money -- as in $1,599 per day.

The docs also included a cryptic tweet, supposedly from Desiigner, saying, "If you have a luxury car you better know how to drive." The rental company thinks it's a confession, but we checked and the account doesn't look like it belongs to Desiigner.

We reached out to Desiigner's rep, who tells us ... "This is the first that Desiigner or his team have heard about this lawsuit. The minute he has had a chance to consult with his attorney, his managers or his attorney will respond."

EXCLUSIVE

0928_ryan_dunn_tmzRyan Dunn from "Jackass" is tweeting bizarre messages -- which is weird due to him being dead -- and his family's on a mission to stop the "disgusting" hackers, stat. 

The tweets started posting a few days ago and were written as if it were Ryan from beyond the grave. One of them joked Ryan had met Harambe the gorilla in heaven -- and another references Tupac.

Ryan's mom, Linda, tells us the posts aren't coming from any friends or family ... and she has no idea how the account got hacked. They never took it down after his death.

You'll recall, Dunn died in a 2011 car crash -- he plowed his Porsche into woods at 130 MPH following a night of heavy drinking. 

Linda's reached out to Twitter to have the hacked tweets removed, but so far she hasn't heard back.
