Tommy Lee Jones

Fire Sale for Incredible Horse Ranch

4/13/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tommy Lee Jones Selling RanchTommy Lee Jones is having such a tough time selling his massive horse ranch in Florida, he's dropping the price by a whopping 25 percent.

The San Saba Polo Ranch sits on 55 acres of land with 48 horse stalls, a regulation size polo field (complete with an underground irrigation system) and an exercise track.  

The main house is 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms ... pretty modest, but it's surrounded by an awesome lake, waterfall and nature preserve. 

Now for the nitty-gritty. TLJ listed the house from 2011-2013 at $26.75 million, but no one bit. Now it's back on the market for a shade under $20 million ... still not too shabby considering he bought it for $2.95 million back in 2002. 

Hopefully he'll be able to make the sale soon, otherwise we might be subjected to another "Men in Black" sequel.

Sandra Bullock

Chilling 911 Call Played

At Stalker Hearing

4/9/2015 12:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

A terrified Sandra Bullock feared for her life as she came face-to-face with her alleged stalker ... and an L.A. courtroom heard it all unfold Thursday as prosecutors played the disturbing 911 audio in court.

A judge heard the frantic call Bullock made to police as she hid in her closet from the man she claims stalked her and broke into her home. During the call, Sandra says she saw "the guy go upstairs into my attic."

A clearly terrified Sandra wonders how long it will be before officers arrive ... asking the operator, "Are they close?"

As we previously reported ... in June 2014, Joshua Corbett was charged with forcing his way into Bullock's house while she was inside ... cops later found an extensive weapons arsenal at his home that included assault rifles and machine guns.

Corbett was handcuffed in court while the tape was played. He's facing 19 felony counts including first degree burglary, stalking, and possession of a machine gun.

Corbett pled not guilty and bail was set at $2.2 mil.

Meek Mill Sued

Grammy Party Was Strictly Forbidden

... Landlord Wants Payback

4/8/2015 4:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0408-meek-mill-tmz-01Meek Mill threw a rager for 1,000 people on Grammy weekend -- in one of the most baller mansions in Beverly Hills -- only problem is, he ignored the landlord's strict rule: NO PARTIES! So now he's getting sued.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek's huge bash in the famous glass mansion ended when a fight broke out, and all the guests poured into the street. It took cops hours to clear the neighborhood. No one was arrested, but Meek got in big trouble with the landlord. 

According to the lawsuit ... when Meek and his people signed a week-long lease ... the management company warned them, "not to think about having the Grammy party" on the premises. In fact, the landlord says the lease limited Meek to no more than SIX people on the property. 

In the docs, the landlord says the place was left trashed with broken furniture, broken glass, destroyed landscaping -- and even a broken trampoline. You know it's a party if you wreck a tramp, bruh. 

The landlord's suing Meek for breaking the lease, for damages, and for roughly 994 people trespassing.

NFL's Greg Little

Eviction War

Over Hollywood Mansion

4/7/2015 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0407-greg-little-mansion-02NFL wide receiver Greg Little has a big problem -- his landlords are trying to evict him from his sick Hollywood Hills bachelor pad ... but GL says HE'S the one getting screwed. 

Here's what we know ... back in January, the 25-year-old free agent began renting the insane 3 bedroom crib for $15,000 per month. And things seemed to be fine until Greg missed a payment. 

The landlord says Greg's rent check bounced -- and he's given the NFL player an ultimatum ... pay up or get out. Greg didn't take either option and is still occupying the home. 

But Greg says that's a load of crap ... claiming he INTENTIONALLY withheld payment from the landlord because the house is essentially a lemon. 

"When you pay for a high dollar house, you want everything to be smooth," Greg tells TMZ Sports ... "stuff was breaking left and right. They wouldn't fix the stuff."

The landlords have now filed court docs to force Greg out of the home. 

Greg says he's not trying to be difficult -- he just wants to be treated fairly. 

Stay tuned ... 

'Dallas' Star Charlene Tilton

My Landlord's Driving Me Bonkers!

EXCLUSIVE

Charlene Tilton Apartment

"Dallas" star Charlene Tilton says her Burbank apartment has been overrun by 20 sweaty dudes with jackhammers, and it's driving her crazy.

Tilton, who played Lucy Ewing on the show, claims in a new lawsuit she plunked down $2,600 a month for a nice Burbank apartment, but her peace was shattered when the landlord broke ground on a 3-month construction project, which involved several weeks of breaking concrete.

Charlene claims her building is now a living hell. She can't use the pool or gym, the elevator doesn't work half the time, she can't open the windows because of ear-shattering noise, and the dust is unbearable.

The 56-year-old actress says she's suffered extreme emotional distress and wouldn't wish the apartment on her worst enemy ... which we're guessing would be the photographer on the soap.

Charlene believes the apartment is unlivable, so she's suing for rent she paid during construction and all sorts of other damages, including emotional distress.

The landlord tells TMZ, he's tried to work with Charlene and even offered a discount in rent, but they just can't reach an agreement.

Mike Tyson

Church Bought My Mansion??

... Awesome!!!

4/3/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mike Tyson has officially given his blessing to the church looking to move into his old digs ... telling TMZ Sports he thinks the pad's residential resurrection is pretty damn awesome.

Tyson was out in NYC when we asked the ex-champ if he knew his old Ohio den of sin had been bought by a developer who plans to turn it into a House of the Lord.

As we previously reported, Mike got rid of the 5 bedroom, 7.5 bath mega-mansion in 1999 ... but the property still has some trademark Tyson decor ... including a massive hot tub with mirrored ceilings. 

Check out the clip -- Iron Mike lights up at the idea of his spot being turned into a worship center

It's never too late to change ... it's just a lot easier for inanimate objects.

Lil Wayne

Get Off My Yard!

I'm Moving to Get Privacy

4/2/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0402-lil-wayne-house-tmz-wforIt's no coincidence Lil Wayne put his Miami Beach home on the market less than a month after he was the victim of a series of pranks ... it's actually the sole reason he's selling. 

According to our sources, Weezy feels his privacy has been utterly compromised because he feels like everyone in America knows where he lives. 

Even before his estate made national headlines -- for a swatting prank, a random prostitute at his door, and a random guy hanging around outside -- we're told there had been several cases of strangers getting too close for comfort.

We're told Wayne feels like his mansion has become a sort of mecca for obsessed fans, and he wants out. 

So anyone who's got $18 million and is in the market for a 15,000 sq. ft. home with a storied recent past ... well, you know where to go.

'Empire' Co-Creator

Not Quite Livin' Like Lucious ...

Snags Modest Crash Pad

4/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Empire Creator New Home"Empire" co-creator Danny Strong is banking on his show going the distance -- he just scored a sweet new WeHo condo to keep him closer to his J-O-B.

Our sources say Danny is only in town part-time when he's churning out the hit FOX drama -- and needed something a little cozier than a hotel ... so he scooped up the modest new crib.

The docs show Danny only dropped $660k on the 1-bed/1-bath pad. Sure, it's only 1177 sq. ft., but it's his 1177 sq. ft.! Plus, it's a stone's throw from the action at Chateau Marmont and the Sunset Strip.

Not-So-Fun Fact: Danny's condo is in the same building where Ashley Greene's unit got torched by a candle 2 years ago. Always get insurance.

Lil Wayne Selling Home
Miami Beach house listing: nine bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, 15,000 sq. ft., one swatting, one random prostitute, and one crazy guy who hangs around ominously outside

So maybe Lil Wayne's real estate agent didn't mention every one of those facts when he put Wayne's house up for sale, but it's up nonetheless. 

And can you blame Weezy? Look at that list of crazy stuff that's gone on at that home in just a little over a month. 

The asking price is a cool $18,000,000 ... so maybe Wayne can spring for a fence around his next place.

Dance Moms Abby Lee Miller Los Angeles"Dance Moms" star Abby Lee Miller is bringing her east coast, in-your-face style to the west coast ... and setting up shop in L.A. ... and we're guessing some thirsty L.A. moms and their daughters will be standing in a long line.

According to our sources, Miller is opening up a branch of her dance studios in Santa Monica, which will be known as ALDC LA (Abby Lee Dance Company Los Angeles). Our sources say Miller is renting an apartment nearby. 

We're told Miller is working in the same studio where "Dancing With The Stars" rehearses while she waits for her new space to be renovated. 

Miller's L.A. victims will appear on her show. We're guessing there will be a fresh look of plastic ... among the moms.

No Longer Adores His Penthouse View

EXCLUSIVE

0327_mark_ballas_home_launch"Dancing With the Stars" pro Mark Ballas' latest move is called packing -- he's leaving his primo penthouse overlooking L.A.'s Miracle Mile ... and hoping to make a bundle.

Our real estate sources tell us he's selling his 3-bed, 3-bath, 1410 sq. ft. loft for $800k ... and looking for a place with a way bigger dance floor. Dude needs more space to jitterbug.

Ballas snagged the place 5 years ago for $679k ... so he won't be walking away empty-handed, if his realtor Andrew Gulyas can get his asking price.

As for where Mark's heading -- we're told he's looking all over L.A., but definitely wants a house instead of a condo.

They grow up so fast.

Church Scooped Up Abandoned Mansion..

For $750k Steal!

Exclusive Details

0330_tyson_house_church_launchThe price was right for Mike Tyson's former Ohio palace to get snatched up by a fledgling church ... which got a very sweet deal for the 58-acres -- and we've learned Tyson will have an open invitation.

Pastor Nick Dejacimo with The Living Word Sanctuary tells TMZ Sports they dropped $750k on the land and the house ... which is 33,000 sq. ft. Yeah, that's a lot of money ... until you consider it was valued at $1.3 million in 1999.

Pastor Nick says the place is almost ready to move in -- "The skylights, arches, and windows in the pool area, it literally looks like a church." As for the dilapidated pool ... he says it will be filled in and converted to the sanctuary.

He adds his humble congregation of 140 has saved 9 years worth of tithing donations in order to make the purchase. In addition to the church ... they plan to renovate part of the land into a workout facility with a jogging path.

The pastor says once they're open for business ... "Iron Mike" is welcome to join them in worship any time.

Abandoned Mansion to Become Church

3/30/2015 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0330_mike_tyson_abandoned_mansion_inside_photos_launchThe insane over-the-top Ohio mansion where Mike Tyson lived and partied in the '80s and '90s is getting a complete makeover ... in Jesus' name. 

The mansion is insane -- featuring marble EVERYWHERE, a hot tub with mirrored ceiling, indoor pool, tiger cages, a basketball court and more. 

Tyson sold the place in 1999 ... and it's had multiple owners since then ... but now, according to the Daily Mail, it's been bought by a developer who plans to turn the property into a church. 

The place isn't in terrible shape ... but it does need some work ... especially since vandals tagged the joint, leaving several "anarchy" symbols around the house. 

And get this, the new owners have offered Tyson an invite to the church's first gathering. No word if he plans on going.
