For String of Celeb Kids

3/4/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Flagg Sells Home"Million Dollar Listing" star Josh Flagg kept alive the tradition -- of rich kids getting richer -- by unloading his posh Hollywood home to another famous kid. 

Flagg tells TMZ ... his now former house, just off the Sunset Strip, has had quite a run of celebrity owners -- and he just sold the quaint 2-bed, 2-bath 1700 sq. ft. home for $2 million.

Checkout the pedigree on the crib: Flagg, grandson of fashion mogul Edith Flagg ... bought it from David Katzenberg -- son of DreamWorks honcho Jeffrey Katzenberg -- for $1.6 mil back in 2013.

And now Josh is handing the keys to Nicolas Pakzad -- son of legendary designer Bijan Pakzad.

Rich kids ... struggling the same way none of us do.

Lena Dunham

Too Bad, So Sad ...

I Got a New House :(

EXCLUSIVE

Lena Dunham New HomeLena Dunham better buy a lot of Kleenex ... she threw down nearly $2.7 million for a new pad in L.A. -- you know, the same city that makes her super depressed.

Dunham told Vogue last year that L.A. just wasn't her bag -- but she's clearly had a change of heart. She bought a 2,500 sq. ft. 3-bed, 3-bath house just off the Sunset Strip.

Her first big ticket West Coast crib includes a swank guest house and pool. The "Girls" creator normally comes to L.A. once a year to edit the show, but looks like she's prepping to suffer on a more regular basis.

Home is where the tears are.

Just because J.J. Watt bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, doesn't mean he's gotta rough it -- 'cause TMZ Sports has the first pic of J.J.'s new Wisconsin pad ... and it's AWESOME!

Watt bought the digs last month as a private getaway for secluded off-season training purposes, describing the home as "really minimalistic" and a way to totally commit to his regimen. 

Well, when you have a $100 million contract "minimalistic" runs around  $800,000 and features 4,500 square feet of living space ... with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and oh yeah ... an elevator.

The property is just outside Milwaukee -- and sits on 35 acres of midwestern wilderness, perfect for "Rocky IV" style Arctic level training.

Word is he plans to transform the barn on the property into a home gym ... just in case chopping down trees gets too easy.

Michael Bay

Construction Worker Sues

Building Michael Bay's new mansion transformed a construction worker into an injured mess ... according to a new lawsuit filed by the guy.  

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the worker says Bay didn't warn him about a dangerous hole on the property ... which was covered with plastic back in February 2013. In the suit, he says he tumbled through the opening, and was seriously injured. 

The worker isn't specific about his injuries in the lawsuit, but says he was hospitalized ... and paid out of pocket for his medical expenses. He also says he couldn't work while he was injured. He's suing to get reimbursed for his medical bills ... as well as damages. 

The mansion's been a long, slow, ordeal for the blockbuster director. He bought the property way back in 2009, demolished the home that was there, and eventually started construction on the new crib.

We reached out to Bay and his rep ... but so far, no word back. 

WWE Stars Lana and Rusev

In Russia We Buy House Together

... BEFORE Marriage

EXCLUSIVE

WWE Lana Rusev Buy Home TogetherWWE stars Rusev and Lana like to live dangerously -- the NOT married or engaged couple just signed on the dotted line to buy a house together after dating for less than 2 years. 

Wrestling fans know Lana is Rusev's manager in the ring -- but now they're finally confirming rumors they're dating ... and it must be serious since they purchased a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home in Nashville.

It's a pretty sweet deal -- 11.56 acres with a pond, hot tub, basketball court and more in Music City ... all for $644K. We're told they chose Nashville because it's easier for them to travel from the middle of the country. 

Now, the reality check ... we're told Rusev and Lana have been living together for over a year, but putting their names on the title of a house -- BEFORE getting married -- is definitely next level.

So, we gotta ask ...

Lil Wayne

Cops Search for Suspicious Lurker

EXCLUSIVE

0228-SUB-lil-wayne-twitter-01A fleet of cops cars raced to Lil Wayne's Miami Beach home early Saturday morning ... after police got a call reporting someone lurking in the neighborhood ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement officials tell us Miami Beach PD rushed to Weezy's after the call -- around 3 AM -- saying there was a suspicious looking man on the rapper's block.

We're told Weezy wasn't home at the time, but cops searched his yard for the suspect ... and came up with nothing. No one ticketed, no one arrested. The commotion did alarm a few neighbors though.

We've reached out to Wayne's camp, but no word back yet.

0226_justin_bieber_bev_hills_home_launchCall the moving trucks -- Justin Bieber's settling into ANOTHER new mansion ... and he'll once again be balling in Beverly Hills. 

Bieber just moved into the 5 bedroom, 6 bath crib that has a couple of things we know he loves -- sweeping city views and graffiti art. 

JB's still just renting ... the 6,000 sq-ft pad was listed at $35,000 per month! It's a major bargain over the $60K/month he was paying for the glass palace, near Bev Hills, that he moved into in December. 

As for the graffiti -- check out the gallery to see what's on Justin's walls. This is the 3rd home he's rented since moving out of the house he owned in Calabasas.

Rolling stones gather no moss.

Kylie Jenner Buys Home

Kylie Jenner is 17. She's buying a $2.7 million house. FML, right?

Sources tell TMZ, Kylie has inked a deal to buy this 4,900 square foot house in The Oaks, an exclusive gated community in Calabasas.

The house -- which is a block from Kourtney and Khloe -- has a sick home theater, a pool, 5 bedrooms, an awesome kitchen, and on and on.

Kylie has made a lot of money on KUWTK. To give you an idea, we're told Scott Disick banks $4 million a season, so she's got the cash. We're told Kris Jenner is "helping her" with the purchase, but we're told it's Kylie loot.

It's a little weird that a girl who is about to turn 18 and is big on the party scene is settling for a suburban, family neighborhood, 24 miles from the action of Hollywood. Justin Bieber tried it and it didn't work out too well.

An L.A. mansion owned by former NBA player Earl Watson was robbed Monday night by at least 4 men in ski masks -- who handcuffed the occupants and ransacked the place. 

While 35-year-old Watson owns the $4 million Encino home, he currently rents it out to a local elderly couple. 

Officials say the men -- at least one of whom had a gun -- broke in through a back door and once inside, they handcuffed the couple and stole various items ... including cash. 

Law enforcement sources tell us a maid was in the house -- who hid and called 911. 

So far no arrests have been made -- and cops are investigating.

Kim Kardashian pisses off Kris Jenner so much by not letting her in Kim and Kanye's new house, the matriarch throws a rock through her window ... according to the script for the upcoming reality show. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... there's a very detailed outline of scenes for season 10 of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." In one scene, after Kim and Kanye move into their new home, Kim goes back to Kris' home and takes a bunch of cookware and silverware.

When Kris realizes it, she storms over to Kim's house to confront her, and through a crack in the door Kris screams, "I gave you life and you stole my cookware!" Kim fires back that if Kris doesn't back off she'll have her removed from the premises. 

Kim slams the door and Kris goes crazy, picks up a rock and throws it at an upstairs window, shattering the glass as she screams, "You won't get rid of me this easily."

The best part ... it's so scripted North West cries on cue.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount.

0220_cody_simpson_weho_launch_2Cody Simpson ain't your average struggling 18-year-old ... the singer just scored his own townhome in the middle of West Hollywood -- and no one's happier than his smoking hot GF Gigi Hadid.

Our real estate sources tell us the Aussie pop star laid down $1.18 million for a 2 bedroom, 3 bath unit. It's got just over 1,600 sq. ft. ... a ton of space for a teenager striking out on his own.

Cody's also getting some sick city views from his FOUR outdoor patios and rooftop deck -- and best of all ... he can share that with modeling's 'it' girl, Gigi.

The pad is a major bonus for Hadid ... who now gets a place to crash near all the action in Hollywood -- instead of trekking out to her parent's Malibu mansion.

Congrats, Cody! Mostly on landing Gigi ... but the crib's cool too.
