Fetty Wap I'll Take My Islands Dripping in Diamonds ... $70,000 Worth!

2/12/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

When Fetty Wap reps his crew, he reps 'em hard ... as in a brand new $70,000 diamond and gold chain hard.

We found out Fetty commissioned Elliot Avianne from Avianne & Co. jewelers in NYC to make a custom RGF Island emblazoned medallion. It's held together by 14 carat gold Cuban links blanketed with 35 carats of diamonds!

Fetty picked up the piece this week and owner Joe Avianne says the "RGF Island" is a reference to the rapper's single from his self titled debut album and his label. 

If you ain't beefin' bout the money, then what's the problem?

Lil Wayne's got more lien problems ... this time it involves his 2014 tax bill.

Uncle Sam says he did not pay $868,000 in federal taxes that year, according to docs

It's a ton of dough, to most of us, but as tax liens go ... Weezy's seen bigger. He was previously hit with a $12 million lien for several years of unpaid taxes.

Wayne was in arrears as of mid-January. It's possible he's already paid it off. We reached out to his camp, but no word back yet. 

The Jasmine Brand first reported Wayne's new lien.

Exclusive Details

1210-michael-cavallari-FACEBOOK-01Kristin Cavallari's family says her brother Michael suffered from extreme paranoia leading up to his fatal disappearance in Utah ... fearing a Mexican gang member was after him.

Michael's car was found a few days after he went missing ... with 2 cell phones, a laptop and a golf bag containing $18k in cash inside. One possible explanation for all that loot -- the report says he'd just inherited $24k from a grandmother.

0209-sheila-family-feud-wrong-answers-mother-nana-FREMANTLE-MEDIA-01The "Family Feud" contestant Steve Harvey ripped for delivering the "worst answer ever" ... says she's positive she's NOT the worst -- although proving it might be difficult.

Sheila Patterson tells TMZ ... her phone's been ringing off the hook since Steve posted a clip of her multiple, hysterical attempts to answer, "What's another way people say mother?"

The clip of Sheila trying to pass off previous answers by changing inflection or adding a Spanish accent has gone viral. She admits she cracked under the pressure of being in front of a live audience.

But as a longtime fan of the show, she insists she's seen much worse responses. We asked her to give us an example ... Sheila drew a blank.

Must be her thing.
