Diddy has zeroed in on a new Beverly Hills mansion -- but he needs to know HOW HARD CAN HE RAGE??? The mogul is asking the local homeowners' association about its party policies.
Bev Hills real estate sources tell us, Diddy is eying a $12 million 11,200 sq. ft. home in the city's gated Beverly Ridge area. But we're told he won't make an offer if he and his friends can't cut loose.
So, Diddy, if you buy the house anyone you invite in must first be cleared by gate security. If you're throwing a big party you need a valet service and security. And there are noise regs too.
The Homeowner's Ass'n is pretty flexible because lots of famous residents are known for their opulent shindigs.
As for the house itself, Keyshawn Johnson had it custom built in 2003, then sold it in 2004 to Paris Hilton's then-fiance Paris Latsis. When the house went back up for sale last year, we're told Kim Kardashian seriously considered buying it -- but ultimately settled on a nearby $11 million Bel Air mansion.

Justin Bieber has cut his final ties with the city of Los Angeles ... because TMZ has learned he's sold the last piece of property he owns in the area ... leaving him wide open for a permanent move to the ATL.
As TMZ first reported, Bieber sold his Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian for a cool $7.2 million ... making a little over a million on the sale.
But according to our sources, Bieber also owned the 1.7-acre plot of land next door ... until now. We're told Bieber just sold that for $2.775 million (he bought it for $2.35 mil in 2012) and the deal closes in 30 days.
As for the buyer, our sources say it's nobody famous, but he's about to inherit a slew of famous neighbors.
We're told Bieber had been looking for another home in the Los Angeles, but he's since called off the search.
Atlanta, he's your problem now.
My Hubby Screwed Me
Sadly, In My Divorce!
3/12/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams got hosed in her divorce settlement with Kordell Stewart.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Porsha gets NO alimony, NO house, NO NFL retirement money, NO cash-out, NO health insurance. She even has to pay her own credit card balances.
It's almost like a western movie. She gets the Mercedes she drove in on, and that's about it. She does get to keep the engagement ring and all of her personal crap ... jewelry, clothes and other personal items.
As for Kordell ... he gets two houses, 2 plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, and his full retirement benefits. He also gets to keep a 100% interest in his companies.
Pretty crazy -- considering there was a lot of talk on "Real Housewives" that Porsha and Kordell did NOT sign a prenup.
Porsha was fighting like crazy to stay in the house, but Kordell changed the locks on her.
And it gets even worse. She's on the chopping block for the show.
On the bright side ... a pawn shop would probably pay a pretty penny for that ring.

Here's a tip Emily Post would approve of ... when nature calls, consider the help ... at least, that's the Brown Code that Bengals safety George Iloka lives by.
The 23-year-old defensive stud just faced that exact situation in his home ... tweeting:
"I gotta take a big ol s**t but my cleanin lady still here. And she super nice so I dont even wanna do her like that by tearin up the bathroom."
Way to do her a solid, man.
I Kicked My House to the Curb
3/9/2014 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Larry David has sold the home he shared with his now-divorced wife ... and he pocketed a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty penny off of it.
Larry and Laurie David lived in the 11,000-square ft. Pacific Palisades home -- with 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms -- in one of the most exclusive areas of L.A.
Real estate sources tell TMZ the house closed Friday for $12 million ... Larry was asking $12.995.
No one has been living in the house for a while ... Larry moved to the uber ritzy Riviera -- also in the Palisades -- and Laurie built her dream home.
The realtors certainly had to curb their enthusiasm ... they ended up on both ends of the deal.
Santiago Arana repped Larry and Mauricio Umansky (Kyle Richards' hubby) represented the business man/buyer. Both guys work at the Agency in Bev. Hills.
Do you think Larry gave the buyer a tour of the place? We're guessing not.
Ex Told Get Out of the Neighborhood
3/9/2014 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Marc Anthony says ex-wife had to sell her home because the wife of the married man she was banging was yelling "whore" through a bullhorn in front of her house and wouldn't stop.
Dayanara Torres is trying to increase her child support payments from $13K a month to $113K. She says she's so strapped for cash she had to sell her home and now she's living with the 2 kids in a hovel of an apartment in the San Fernando Valley.
But Marc tells a very different story. In legal docs he says Dayanara was SHAMED out of the house because the wife of her adulterous lover took to the sidewalk "with a bullhorn yelling 'whore' for the whole neighborhood to hear."
Marc says the scorned woman was so unrelenting ... he sent his own security to help.
And, he says, part of her financial plight is her own doing, because she ended up selling the house at a loss. Lesson -- don't bang married men.
Dayanara denies the whole bullhorn incident.
D.A. Doesn't Want CELEBRITY JUSTICE
3/8/2014 12:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The L.A. County District Attorney wants to make sure Justin Bieber is treated like Joe Schmoe when they charge him with egging his neighbor's house ... and that's why the case hasn't been filed.
Law enforcement sources involved in the case tell TMZ ... prosecutors are still evaluating 2 factors in deciding whether to charge Bieber with a misdemeanor or a felony. First, the D.A. is digging deep into the exact amount of damage the yoking cost the homeowner.
As we first reported ... the homeowner submitted estimates to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. putting the total tab at around $20K.
The D.A. is also looking at similar cases they and other law enforcement agencies have prosecuted, to determine if a misdemeanor or a felony is most appropriate. They don't want this to look like "celebrity justice." The complicating factor -- they've already charged Lil Za with FELONY vandalism for breaking a $400 jail phone.
Our sources say the amount of damage isn't the only factor. The egregiousness of the act is also a big factor.
Notice we are not couching this post by saying Bieber might not be charged. That's because we're told he will be charged ... the only issue is whether it's a misdemeanor or a felony. If you're betting, go with the former.
Buy My L.A. Beach Pad
Plenty of Room to Flop
3/6/2014 3:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
For Sale: Vlade Divac's beach house in L.A's Pacific Palisades. The retired NBA star is asking $3.25 million for the home.
Here are some of the highlights.
-- 5 bedrooms ... to flop in.
-- a wine cellar ... to flop in.
-- yoga room ... to flop in.
-- walk-in closets ... to flop in.
-- outdoor dining area with ocean view ... to flop on.
-- 4.5 bathrooms ... to poop in.
Divac -- who reportedly made more than $93 million during his career -- bought the place back in 2003, but according to Realtor.com, he had offered it as a rental for $13k-per-month.
The home is expected to draw as many offers as Vlade did fouls. #flopjokes.
I Just Bought Bieber's Calabasas Crib
3/6/2014 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber's Calabasas neighbors can finally breathe a sigh of relief ... because the Biebs is moving out -- after scoring a million dollar profit from the new buyer ... Khloe Kardashian.
We broke the story ... Bieber decided to move out of Calabasas in January after numerous run-ins with neighbors and law enforcement -- where he felt trapped in his own home -- and now he dumped it off on Khloe.
Bieber bought the house in 2012 for just over $6 mil. Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Khloe bought the home for $7.2 million.
As for Khloe ... she sold her Tarzana estate to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco for $5.49 mil.
The move makes sense for K.K. -- her sister Kourtney recently purchased the nearby home of Keyshawn Johnson ... who had his fair share of beef with J.B.
We're told Khloe will do some remodeling, because Justin's 19-year-old taste doesn't suit her.
He's all yours Atlanta!
Goldilocks Break-In At ATL Mansion
3/6/2014 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A tiny woman somehow got into Justin Bieber's house Wednesday and found her way into a bedroom ... TMZ has learned.
It's a bizarre story. Just after 5 PM, the niece of the guy who is renting his Atlanta Estate to Justin called the cops and said she came home and found "an Asian female" sleeping in one of her bedrooms.
She called the cops and when they arrived they found 5'5", 110 lb Qianying Zhao waiting outside the home and she had quite the story. She said she had met Bieber on Twitter and was visiting him for a birthday party.
Sadly, she said she realized she was too late for the party so she decided to come to his house and wait for him. She said she found an open door and let herself in.
Zhao was arrested for criminal trespass and placed into "double-locked handcuffs" with her hands behind her back.
It's unclear if Justin was home at the time.
9:25 AM PT -- We just got the 911 call. It's pretty hilarious.
In Non-Rape Related Lawsuit
3/6/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
If Darren Sharper wasn't locked up on rape charges, he'd be pretty pumped right now -- 'cause he recently won a $178k lawsuit in a war over a crappy remodeling job on his FL condo ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Sharper had sued a Florida construction company, along with an interior designer, that botched a very expensive construction job at the former NFL star's swanky condo.
Sharper's Florida attorney, Michael Simon, tells us ... "There was work that wasn't done properly. There was work that wasn't completed. We went to court to get Darren's money back."
In the end, the judge sided with Sharper -- and ordered the companies to pay up.
Normally, a plaintiff would celebrate such an enormous victory ... but Darren, well ... he's a little preoccupied at the moment.
USC Basketball Coach
I'm No Lane Kiffin
Takes Big Hit on Florida Home
3/5/2014 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Not all USC coaches are created equal ... at least when it comes to real estate -- just ask Trojan basketball coach Andy Enfield who just got rocked in Florida the same week Lane Kiffin made out like a bandit in L.A.
TMZ Sports has learned Enfield took a $130k hit on his "Dunk City" home in Fort Meyers, FL -- where he lived when he ran the b-ball program at Florida Gulf Coast University.
Enfield dropped $725k on the place when he bought in 2011 -- and initially put it on the market for $675k when he ditched the school in 2013.
But no one bit ... so he dropped and dropped and dropped ... until he finally found someone to take the property off his hands last month for $597,500, according to RealEstate.com.
It's the opposite side of the spectrum from Kiffin -- who made $1 MILLION last week after selling the Manhattan Beach pad where he lived during his time at SC.
The good news for Enfield -- his wife's super hot (see below).
So, there's that.
Suspected in Kardashian Jewelry Heist
3/5/2014 1:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom's drug dealers could be linked to the $250,000 jewelry heist at Lamar and Khloe's house ... because we're told the dealers threatened to break in to get the money Lamar never paid.
Multiple sources involved in Lamar's drug deals last year tell TMZ ... Lamar wasn't paying his tab. In fact, our sources say he was in the hole $15K to just one dealer back in Sept. and he owed another more than $40K.
Lamar would fend them off by saying he was loaded and therefore good for it. He would also justify not paying from time to time because the quality of the drugs was "wack."
We're told Lamar owed 10s of thousands of dollars to drug dealers when he left for Spain last month.
Now the plot thickens. We're told Lamar was getting text messages threatening his safety and also warning him they would break into his home to get even.
Cops don't know who stole the expensive jewelry but we're told there was no sign of forced entry. One source says he has reason to believe one of the dealers had connections to someone who works for the family and had lawful access to the house.
