Tom Gores Pistons Owner Buys $100 Million Mansion!!!

10/21/2016 2:14 PM PDT

1021-paul-gores-coldwellbankerhomes-01One of the best properties in all of Los Angeles just sold ... for a cool $100 mil, TMZ has learned.

Detroit Pistons' owner Tom Gores snagged the Holmby Hills estate Thursday. The place is spectacular ... 30,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a 10 car garage, ridiculous pools, including an indoor waterfall that drops into a lap pool, beauty salon, wine room, massage room, movie theater ... and on and on.

The master suite alone is 5,300 square feet!

It's the second $100 million sale in L.A. ... back in August the Playboy Mansion, also located in Holmby Hills, sold for the same amount.

Gores kept it all in the family. He was repped by real estate agents Tiffany and Christy Martin, his nieces, and sister Samira.  All 3 agents are with The Agency, which by the way also sold the Playboy Mansion.

The property used to be owned by Barbara Streisand back in the day, but years later it was razed and the new house was built.

4/28/2016 1:30 PM PDT

Nothing takes the sting out of being swept in the playoffs like a Justin Bieber concert ... so says NBA superstar Andre Drummond

"He's a cool dude," Drummond told us. 

AD also says Bieber put on one helluva show -- but it wasn't perfect ... he's still got some room to grow. 

As for the rest of Andre's off-season plans -- don't worry Detroit, Drummond says he'll come back even STRONGER next season. 

Stevie Wonder Hell Yeah I Love The Pistons ... I SAW The Bad Boys Play

3/14/2016 12:20 AM PDT

It's not surprising Stevie Wonder is a Pistons fan ... dude is a Motown LEGEND ... but the reason why he likes the team is another head scratcher from the singer.

Stevie was out at Craig's in L.A. when we asked him if his Detroit roots automatically meant he swore loyalty to the Pistons ... the home team in the motor city.

Check out the clip -- Stevie says he does love the team ... and it's all because he SAW during the Pistons' Bad Boy era of the '80s.

Let the conspiracy theories continue.

Brandon Jennings is throwing the last shovel of dirt on Meek Mill's rap grave, and insists Meek's got no one to blame but himself. 

The Pistons star was leaving 1 OAK on the Sunset Strip and didn't hesitate when we brought up the Drake-Meek mess, saying ... "His career just got started, now it's done."

Of course, Brandon -- who just came back from OVO Fest -- got in the middle of the feud last week when he posted a pic of himself writing Meek a check for $150 to stop rapping.

NBA's Brandon Jennings Religious Players Are More Successful

6/19/2015 2:59 PM PDT

Sorry atheists ... NBA players who have a good relationship with God are more successful than NBA players who don't ... so says Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings.  

Jennings was at LAX today when he told us religion plays a huge role in the NBA ... "Before every game we always have a little bible study ceremony ... any city you go to, so it's pretty cool."

That's not the case with every team -- Doc Rivers, in an effort to respect different beliefs, reportedly does not allow team prayer in the Clippers locker room ... though he does lead a moment of silence before games. 


Andre Drummond I Fear Michael Jordan ... In 1-On-1 Game

6/18/2015 1:20 PM PDT

He's 52-years-old ... but Michael Jordan still strikes fear into the hearts of the NBA's young guns -- including Andre Drummond who says he thinks MJ could still ball him up in 1-on-1. 

The Detroit Pistons star was at Gold's Gym in L.A. when we asked about a recent interview in which MJ said he could still beat any of the players on the Charlotte Hornets roster ... but doesn't want to "demolish their confidence."

So, we asked Andre -- who's 21-years-old and one of the best young stars in the league -- if HE thinks he could take the old man ... and he didn't exactly sound like the most confident guy.

6/4/2015 8:03 AM PDT

The Detroit Pistons point guard recently announced that his model girlfriend Tae Heckard is with child -- it'll be Brandon's 3rd kid ... but his 1st with Tae. 

Jennings says he's SOLID when it comes to parenting -- he changes diapers, he warms the milk, everything -- which is why he doesn't need another crash course in being a dad. 

But when it comes to predicting the sex, Jennings says he's 100% certain this one's a boy -- since he's already got 2.  

So, will he ever have a girl? "I don't know. We'll see. If my next baby mama's with it."

Exclusive Details

12:55 PM PT -- We spoke to Andre who tells us, "I found [Jennette's comments] funny. There's a lot of false info in there, but I'll be the mature person about the situation and let it die out."

Andre also posted a Vine video moments ago that seems to be a response to the story in which he says, "Sometimes you gotta live and learn by the mistakes you make. You gotta move on and keep pushing."

"iCarly" star Jennette McCurdy is kissing and telling in a big way about her short-lived "relationship" with NBA star Andre Drummond ... and according to Jennette, the kissing part SUCKED.

McCurdy appeared on Pete Holmes' podcast "You Made It Weird" and spilled her guts about her fling with 20-year-old Drummond.

Jennette didn't pull punches -- admitting she only heard about the guy after he repeatedly chose her as his "Woman Crush Wednesday" on Twitter -- and eventually agreed to talk to Drummond because he "seemed like a big deal."

030214_jenette_andre_date_launchJennette says they had some early conversations that "gave [her] pause" but she decided to go out on some dates with him anyway.

McCurdy then describes their first kiss -- which went down after a laser tag date -- saying, "It just didn't go great ... no sparks. The mouths ... the shapes weren't right."

Still, they continued to hang out, McCurdy says ... and he was so into her, he bought her a necklace and got down on his knees during a dinner date and asked her to be his GF.

Even though she wasn't into it, she said yes ... only to break up with him on the phone a few days later.

You gotta listen to the whole podcast ... McCurdy seems to be laughing at Drummond the entire time -- painting him as this pathetic, immature guy who doesn't have a clue about how to court a woman.

But the relationship did start as a public event on social media ... so, fair for Jennette to go public with all the gory breakup details too?
