Exclusive Details

The Houston Astros are getting some serious bling long before their rings arrive -- 'cause Paul Wall says he's hookin' up EVERY PLAYER with a custom gold grill.

The craziest part -- the rapper and his business partner Johnny Dang are trying to get it done BEFORE the World Series parade on Friday!!

We got Wall and Dang after their hometown 'Stros clinched the Series ... and they told TMZ Sports they ain't sparing any expense when it comes to H-Town's MLB champs.

Not only is the entire 40-man roster (and their hot WAGs) getting their own personalized teeth swag -- but each one is coming in 18 karat gold!! 

Wall says the players might have to break out the plastic if they want a full mouth of diamonds ... but beyond that, everything's fair game.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman approves. 

Cardi B Offset Rocked Me ... With Half Million Worth of Bling

Exclusive Details

Cardi B's walking around with a fortune on her left hand ... because Offset definitely didn't skimp when he put a ring on it.

The Migos rapper dropped $550k on Cardi's engagement ring, which took a month and a half to make ... according to the owner of NYC's Pristine Jewelers. It came together just in time for Offset's live onstage proposal, but means he really must have been sweating during their brief breakup.

Cardi's shiny 8-carat stone's surrounded by 2 half-carat pear diamonds and 2 carats worth of pink and white stones. The ring's totally custom made in the raindrop shape Offset wanted.

It also worked out perfectly -- we're told the ring was finished by the day of the Philly Powerhouse concert and he picked it up just hours before he proposed.

As we reported ... Offset could get a big chunk of his ring money back -- he and Cardi B are wanted for a TV wedding special that could land the couple one million bucks.

A little bit up close 💍💍💦💦 @pristine_jewelers Thanks babe @offsetyrn 💧

Exclusive Details

The plane that was carrying the OKC Thunder during a scary in-fight incident that crushed the nose of the plane has been repaired ... and it's ready to get back in the air, TMZ Sports has learned.  

The incident took place Saturday morning -- Delta, which was operating the team's chartered flight from Minnesota to Chicago -- says initial reports suggest a possible bird strike smashed the front of the plane. 

But Delta works fast ... a rep for the company tells us, "The aircraft, a Boeing 757-200, has since been inspected and its nose cone replaced."

Impressive since the plane was repaired roughly 48 hours after the incident. 

"The damaged nose cone has been sent to a maintenance facility to undergo additional evaluation," Delta adds. 

Question is ... will Carmelo, Russ and the rest of the team ever get back on that plane? We'll see.

Exclusive Details

Sources connected to Wanya tell us he isn't the one who invited O.J. to the shoot -- instead it was a friend of his, who also owns the home where it all went down.

We're told Wanya was at the shoot, briefly, but didn't interact with Simpson.

Forget O.J. Simpson's Heisman pose ... LOOK AT THIS!!!

The Juice was smack in the middle of a double dose of insanely hot chicks Wednesday in Las Vegas. The women were there for a commercial shoot ... the one on the right is Laura Saucedo, and she was so thrilled with the O.J. run-in, she posted pics and video.

We're told the crib used for the commercial is owned by Boyz II Men member Wanya Morris, who invited O.J. over for the day to hang. As for the commercial ... it was for a laser hair removal company -- L.A. Laser Hair Removal LV -- owned by Morris' longtime friend.

Simpson was NOT officially a part of the commercial, but he did get in a couple shots ... unclear if he'll make the final cut.

He's never met a camera he didn't love, though.

Exclusive Details

The manager of the restaurant where Oakland A's catcher Bruce Maxwell claims he was refused service by a pro-Trump waiter claims the MLB player is lying through his teeth. 

Maxwell -- the only MLB player who took a knee during the national anthem this season -- told TMZ Sports he was recognized by a waiter at an Alabama restaurant after the protest ... and the guy refused to serve him

Maxwell said the server told him he supported Trump, disagreed with the protest, and refused to serve him lunch. 

But Anne Whalen -- the manager at Keegan's restaurant in Huntsville, Alabama -- tells TMZ Sports ... the story just ain't true. 

Whalen says there was a dispute that day ... but it was over alcohol -- someone in Maxwell's party didn't have ID and the restaurant refused to serve that person beer. 

Whalen also told Fox News, "He is outright lying. This is really upsetting as he was given full service."

Maxwell is adamant he's telling the truth and sticks by his story.

Exclusive Details

Most rappers dream of flying in a private plane, 21 Savage is one step closer to flying his own someday after completing his first-ever solo flight with the goal of getting his pilot's license.

We're told the ATL rapper has been taking flying lessons for 5 months and Tuesday he grabbed the controls for an hour-long flight between Miami and the Florida Keys in a one-prop Cirrus SR20.

Amber Rose was on board and documented the whole thing, while his BFF Shy D sat in the back and an instructor sat shotgun. 

Fun Fact: 21 Savage has always dreamed of being a pilot, but getting a license ain't cheap ... it usually costs about $10k. We're told the rapper decided to put some of his hard-earned guap towards finally making his dream come true this year, but he's still got a ways to go before he's flying cross-country by himself.

Katy Perry got her 15 minutes of fame this weekend ... in the wedding crashing world, that is.

Katy stumbled upon a wedding reception Saturday at a Four Seasons Hotel she was staying at in St. Louis -- where she was performing the next day. We're told she asked the bride and groom, Blonie Dudney and Hayley Rosenblum, if they were cool with her crashing for a while.

Katy mostly hung out with the newlyweds, and was even ramping up to perform for everyone ... but pulled the plug when things got a bit rowdy. Although she did stay to take some epic photos.

Sources say Katy stayed for roughly 15 minutes and danced a majority of the time. Some of her entourage hung out a bit longer after she left.

That's one for the books ... and the wedding album.

Exclusive Details

It would be awesome if it happened ... but the Dodgers tell TMZ Sports ... Vin Scully will NOT be firing up his legendary microphone for a World Series cameo.

The greatest Dodgers broadcaster of all time retired last year -- but many are holding out hope he will come back to work to call an inning or two now that the Blue Crew is playing in the WS. 

But unfortunately, it ain't gonna happen. 

We spoke with Dodgers exec. Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lon Rosen who tells us, "Neither Vin Scully nor Sandy Koufax will be returning to action for the World Series. They will be enjoying the Dodgers like all the rest of our great fans."

Scully watched the Dodgers clinch the NLCS from the couch with his wife and daughter -- and they were so excited, they tweeted out a celebratory pic!

Early Friday morning, Vin emailed with L.A. Daily News reporter Tom Hoffarth about the possibility of a World Series broadcast booth cameo and said, "I honestly don’t feel I belong there and I would not want anyone to think I was eager for a spotlight."

We reached out to Vin's daughter Cat who tells us Vin's "really enthused" about the Dodgers making the World Series and is considering going to at least 1 game ... but as of now, there's "nothing percolating" about a comeback. 

Then again, anything's possible ... right??

LFO singer Devin Lima has a huge weight lifted off his entire body today, after doctors removed a massive tumor as well as 2 organs -- and his prognosis is good. 

Lima's surgery Thursday was considered a huge success since doctors also thought he might lose his spleen and part of his colon. Lima found out 3 weeks ago the tumor was wrapped around his adrenal gland and pushing against all his organs, even his heart. We're told doctors had to remove a kidney and his adrenal gland during surgery.

They're testing the tumor to make sure it's not cancerous, and should have a pathology report back early next week. We're told Devin will remain at the hospital until then.

Devin was in good spirits post-op, even cracking jokes about the football in his gut with bandmate Brad Fischetti ...

Barson is the 78-year-old man who died from his injuries after the June collision. Venus blames a third unidentified driver for the accident.
