'American Chopper' Star Ol' Paul Teutul Has a Farm ... But Needs A Bigger One!!!

1/17/2018 12:40 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Paul Teutul Sr. wants to ride off into the sunset with more land and more animals, but he's gotta unload his old ranch first, so he slashed the price ... TMZ has learned.

The "American Chopper" star recently dropped asking price from $2.9 million to $2.5 mil for his 38-plus-acre upstate New York spread. We're told he's on the hunt for a place with more land for his rescue animals. Fun fact about Paul ... he's VP of the Hudson Valley SPCA.

Paul originally put the Montgomery, NY home on the market in Oct. It's got 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, attached pool house and, of course, the pool ... complete with slide and waterfall! His listing agent is Seta Tunell with Ellis Sotheby's International Realty.

The home was frequently featured on 'Chopper' ... which, btw, is coming back to TV this February after a 5-year hiatus. We're told Paul's animal rescue operation -- with mini-horses, donkeys and alpacas -- will be prominently featured.

Lil Yachty #1 Fan Iced Out in Sailing Team Swag

1/17/2018 12:20 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Sometimes it pays to be a Lil Yachty mega-fan -- just ask this 17-year-old who got showered with gifts from the rapper ... as a late Christmas gift.

Yachty personally delivered a bundle of goodies to Danielle Combs (no Diddy relation) in Atlanta last week after promising some "rare" swag to her and another fan.

We're told he hooked her up with a bunch of gear from the Sailing Team -- Yachty's rap collective -- which included some custom jewelry. Danielle's name was engraved on the back of an 18-carat yellow gold necklace from Icebox Diamonds & Watches ... with 184 diamonds and a $10k price tag.

Our Yachty sources say he's purchased nearly 25 Sailing Team necklaces from the ATL-based jeweler. 

As for why Danielle was a lucky winner, we're guessing it had something to do with her dope artwork of Yachty. Float on, kid.

Seattle Seahawks star Jeremy Lane was being completely blunt during his DUI arrest over the weekend ... straight-up admitting "I was more high than anything" while talking to cops.

TMZ Sports has obtained the report ... which reveals the CB was initially stopped for driving 80 mph in a 60 mph zone. When cops pulled Lane over, his eyes were allegedly bloodshot and watery, and his speech was slurred.

Lane agreed to several field tests and had trouble keeping his balance. He also agreed to a breathalyzer ... which showed a BAC of .039 -- as previously reported by Jeremy Lane himself.

When cops arrested Lane for DUI, the NFLer expressed concern over "people thinking he was drunk," ... and confessed "This time I was more high than anything."

The arresting officer explained that he could in fact be arrested for being under the influence of weed ... and even addresses Lane's tweets about the incident, admitting he still probably doesn't understand.

"Three shithole dudes just living the dream." 

That's how Team U.S.A. soccer stud Jozy Altidore captioned his Instagram pic with Usain Bolt and P.K. Subban this weekend in the wake of Donald Trump's comments.

So, when they got together at Rockwell nightclub in Miami -- Jozy used the opportunity to send a message to President Trump.

Then they proceeded to party their faces off.

In response to Jozy's post, Rockwell said it was a "pleasure having three class acts join us.”

James Franco was nowhere to be seen Thursday night at the Critics' Choice awards because he was extremely upset over sexual misconduct allegations against him ... sources connected to Franco tell TMZ.

Franco won Best Actor in a Comedy Film but was not in the hangar at the Santa Monica Airport to claim the trophy.

Our sources say the actor is in a bad place ... upset and frustrated over allegations he says are untrue.  Franco endured several grillings on talk shows in the last few days, saying he'd rather take a bullet than cast aspersions on the #MeToo movement.

One source said on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being inconsolable, Franco's a 6.

He flew to L.A. Thursday to attend the awards, but obviously had a change of heart.

1/11/2018 10:35 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Timbaland knows value when he sees it ... that's why he dropped FOUR MILLION BUCKS for a condo that's still under construction.

The mega hitmaker spent a small fortune on this plush Miami crib in the 53-story Aria on the Bay building that's nearing completion. Timbaland's oasis is a 6-bedroom, 8-bathroom pad that will include 2 private elevators. The new digs will be finished in about 2 months.

The condo's interior will be a sprawling 4,700 square feet and the terrace alone -- with unobstructed bay and ocean views -- is an expansive 1,200 square feet. The building's 648 luxury condos also have access to baller amenities -- pools, hot tubs, fire pits, private spa, and an indoor/outdoor bar.

How baller's the building? Yankees star Giancarlo Stanton bought a penthouse there.

Timbaland was repped by Tim Elmes and Marc Hameroff, and John Parsiani repped the seller.

Mark Wahlberg's Rep Tells 'All the Money in the World' Financiers 'He Doesn't Work for Free'

1/11/2018 8:14 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Mark Wahlberg had producers of "All the Money in the World" "over a barrel" when he demanded $1.5 million to reshoot scenes from the movie last month, and director Ridley Scott is furious he was left in the dark and "hung out to dry" ... this according to multiple sources connected to the production.

Our sources tell us the reshoot -- triggered by the ousting of Kevin Spacey -- went down this way ... Michelle Williams was the first actor approached by a producer -- not Ridley Scott -- and she jumped at the task, saying she'd move mountains to complete the movie. She eventually agreed to do it for pennies ... she got $80 per diem and that's it.

At around the same time, we're told Ridley flew to London to see Mark and convince him to do the reshoot. Mark, we're told, agreed, but there was no discussion of money.

We're told after Wahlberg was on board, producers approached Christopher Plummer and signed him up.

Our sources say after Wahlberg committed, his reps and the 2 main financiers for the movie had discussions, and his reps said Mark "never" works for free and demanded the money, and made it clear he would not reshoot the scenes unless he got what he was after. We're told the financing guys had no choice and agreed to pay.

We're told when Ridley went public and said everyone was working for free, that was based on information he was given. We're told he feels betrayed and angry.

The complicating factor ... Wahlberg and Williams are both repped by William Morris Endeavor. We reached out to the agency for comment -- whether the agency should have given Michelle a heads-up that their other client was making a bundle while she was working for free. We got a "no comment."

Paul Wall can't fathom how United Airlines fired one of his closest friends after 16 years of service ... and in the process put the guy's financial future at risk.

If you haven't heard ... the rapper on Tuesday fired off a couple of tweets claiming United fired a close family friend -- and a combat disabled veteran at that -- for allowing Paul to fly for free using his corporate friends and family privilege. Paul says the friend's been with United for 16 years and was close to retirement.

The rapper tells us he's done it plenty of times, but thinks the airline started digging into his flight history after he dissed them on Twitter. He feels horrible how things went down for his friend.

United tells TMZ, "We restrict this benefit to leisure travel. Mr. Wall used these travel benefits for business purposes, which our policy does not permit." Paul maintains he did nothing wrong.

We're told "Dr. Phil" reached out to Margera Monday after we broke the news friends and fam were trying to get Bam help, but he turned it down.

Bam's mom tells us there's no timetable for his rehab stint -- they'll just see how he responds.

After his DUI arrest, we're told the first thing Bam said was he wants to be there for his wife and their newborn son, Phoenix.

Exclusive Details

Here's video proof that Drake's days of airballing 3's in front of the whole world are over ... with the hip-hop star looking pretty wet, draining some longballs during a pick-up game at his L.A. crib.

Drake embarrassed himself a couple years back warming up with Kentucky ... drawing nothing but air from deep before a game and becoming the laughingstock of hip-hop hoops.

To fix it, Drake hit up world famous hoops trainer Dribble2much -- tutor to NBA stars like DeMar DeRozan ... and sources tell us the two men have been working diligently on Drizzy's game for months.

You can see the results for yourself. The dude from the north isn't just hitting shots, he's making dope passes too -- a total turnaround.

Oh, BTW ... that's a LeBron James high school jersey Drake is wearing. We don't know why that matters but it does.
