Selena Gomez Sick of Being Defined by Boyfriends

2/19/2017 12:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-the-weeknd-selena-gomez-justin-bieber-TMZ-01Selena Gomez thinks Justin Bieber needs to move on from his obsession with her, and she's vowing never to get lost in the shadow of another relationship ... so say people close to her.

We're told Selena isn't angry at Justin for attacking her new BF, The Weeknd ... we're told she has no connection anymore with her ex.

That said, our Selena sources say she's fed up with everyone on social media trying to define her by the guy she's dating. She's proud of her accomplishments as a singer, and thinks every time she hooks up with someone people ignore her as an artist, a TV producer for a new show, the face of Coach and the most followed person on Instagram.

Selena's already taken steps to keep her identity separate from her boyfriends. She didn't attend last week's Grammys with The Weeknd and is very conscious when she's with him to present herself as her own person.

Speaking of The Weeknd, we're told he's laughing at reports his new song, "Some Way," is a rant against Bieber, taunting him with the relationship with his ex. We're told the song was written before he started dating Selena, so the stories are ridiculous.

John Wall NBA Players Will Punish Lonzo Ball ... For Daddy Talkin' Smack

2/19/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

NBA All-Star John Wall says NBA players -- especially Steph Curry -- will punish UCLA star Lonzo Ball for his father's smack talk, saying all the hype has definitely put a target on the kid's back.

We talked to Wall as he was in New Orleans getting ready for the All-Star game Sunday ... and asked about Lonzo's dad, LaVar, telling TMZ Sports his son was gonna be BETTER than Steph Curry.

The comments caught fire ... with a lot of people wondering if LaVar's fatherly pride was biting off more than his son's game can chew.

Wall told us he DEFINITELY thinks Lonzo is a legit baller ... but said there's no doubt about the fact that the entire league ... especially Steph ... will be lining up to take a chunk outta his ass next year.

"He's putting a lot of pressure on his kid ... he's adding fuel to the fire for when he plays Steph Curry, or any other point guards after he gets drafted."

We guarantee you this ... LaVar and his crew ain't scared at all.

Kris Jenner Rolls-Royce Accordion Up for Sale

2/19/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-car-sale-COPART-02The car Kris Jenner totaled just off the 101 can now be yours for about half its original sticker price.

Kris' discarded Roll-Royce is sitting on an L.A. car auction lot ... and the opening bid is $195k. Here's the good news ... the car still runs, but barely.

Kris' insurance company got the car after declaring it totaled, and then sold it to a random guy who's now trying to cash in on the Kardashian name.

The car retailed for around $400k, so a bargain, right?

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-car-sale-COPART-01We broke the story ... Kris got cut off this past summer, causing her to crash her new ride, which was just a week old. Luckily, she had another one shipped out the next day.

Like we said, the wrecked Rolls still works -- but can only go forward and backward for now. In other words ... it needs to be fixed up before it can hit the streets again.

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-scene-gallery-launch-TMZ-01BTW ... a brand new Rolls-Royce runs anywhere between $250k to upwards of $400k, and we're guessing Kris spared no expense on her own. Question here ... is KUWTK worth it?

Guess Model Sues I Paid for Bev Hills Luxury Got Roach Motel Hell Instead!

2/19/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217_model_roaches_compositeA smoke show Guess model says she couldn't drop a deuce without cockroaches dropping on her head -- a nightmare scenario, especially in a high-priced Bev Hills crib.

Romanian hottie Nicoleta Vaculov says she'd dropped a total of $9k to move into the place last summer, but immediately discovered it was literally crawling with roaches. She says it was so bad they were all over her bed and the clothes in her closet.

In the perfect horror movie scene -- she had to cover the vent in her bathroom because las cucarachas were falling on her while she sat on the throne. Go ahead ... picture that.

Nicoleta bolted after a few months and now she's suing her landlord. She blames an overflowing dumpster near her apartment, and says the infestation stressed her out so much she couldn't model. 

And THAT would be a crime ...

Plies Driver's License Yanked ... No Blow, No Go!

2/19/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-plies-tmz-01Plies is already feeling the consequences from his DUI arrest, even before he gets to court -- he's lost his driver's license because he refused to take a breathalyzer test.

The rapper's license will be suspended for 1 year ... regardless of what happens in his DUI case. Cops say he declined all testing -- breath, urine and blood -- the night he was busted last month in the Tampa area. That decision triggers automatic suspension under Florida law.

We broke the story ... Plies was busted driving the wrong way down a one-way street. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, he was also driving without a shoe at the time.

Hope he found it -- dude's gonna be hoofin' it for a while.

Patti Stanger Widow Sues Over Lame Dates

2/19/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-patti-stanger-tmz'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger ripped off a widow who was looking for love by hooking her up with a worthless dating service ... according to a new suit.

Heidi Williams claims she wanted to hire Patti to get back into the dating game -- her husband died a few years ago -- but Stanger said she was too old for her clientele.

According to the suit ... Patti referred Heidi to a friend's dating service -- Pretty People International. Heidi claims she dropped $15,000 for a PPI membership ... and Patti got a referral fee.

Heidi's lawyer says the service left her high and dry -- she only got one real date and one phone date. 

Heidi wants a full refund times 3 -- $45,000.

We reached out to Patti's peeps and PPI ... so far, no word back.

For any curious single fellas out there ... here's a shot of Heidi.

President Trump Mar-a-Lago Protected from Planes, Drones and Rockets

2/18/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-mar-a-lago-donald-trump-no-drones-fun-art-02President Trump's Winter White House is in an aerial bubble ... with major restrictions on drones and other aircraft flying within miles of Mar-a-Lago.

Drones cannot be flown within a 10 nautical mile radius of the area surrounding the president's estate, during the time he's there. When Trump leaves, people can fly drones only with prior FAA and airport approval.

Palm Beach International Airport is 2.5 miles away from Mar-a-Lago. Commercial and government flights will not be restricted, but private pilots will be put through the ringer. We're told before landing at PBI, private pilots must land at a nearby airport and get hardcore TSA screening, which includes ID verification, vetting of all pilots, crew and passengers, screening of baggage and airplane inspection.

Also, no firearms are allowed onboard.

And there's more. Each private pilot is given a "discreet code" -- a secret password -- that they must continuously squawk back to the PBI tower.

One more thing. While Trump is in town, no one can balloon, hang glide, skydive or tow a banner over the estate. Also, no rockets.

Tyron Woodley I'm The Greatest UFC Welterweight Ever ... Better Than Georges St-Pierre

2/18/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyron Woodley says he's the greatest UFC welterweight EVER ... better than Georges St-Pierre ... and he won't stop kicking ass until he's proved it to the entire world.

Woodley -- the current UFC champ at 170 -- sat down with TMZ Sports to talk about his upcoming rematch with Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson at UFC 209 in March.

Tyron told us he's looking forward to polishing Thompson off and proving their last fight (which ended in a draw) was a fluke ... but beyond that, he's got some bigger things to prove.

"I'm the best welterweight to ever fight in the Octagon, all I gotta do is keep winning to prove it. I'm more well rounded than Georges St-Pierre, I punch harder."

We have no idea if he's right ... but we're certainly not gonna tell him he's wrong.

'Flip or Flop' Star Tarek El Moussa Now I Clean and Sell Houses ... Alone

2/18/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217-main-tarek-associates-tmz-05"Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa's the only pretty mug you'll see on the flyer pimping his real estate biz ... Christina's apparently been kicked to the curb.

TMZ got its webbed hands on Tarek's ad that started circulating in the O.C. ... and he's flying solo. Tarek's now with Sotheby's ... and she's clearly not.

It's a big departure from they way they created their brand ... sort of like Sonny and Cher.

Tarek and Christina are putting on happy faces while they film their TV show ..but off-screen it's now The Sonny Show.

Ice Cube Kobe Would Never Get Oakley'd Staples Center Ban Is IMPOSSIBLE

2/18/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Kobe ... he'll NEVER be shunned from Staples Center like Charles Oakley was from Madison Square Garden ... that's according to Ice Cube who says a Mamba ban is simply not possible.

Cube is a gigantic Lakers fan and when we got him out at LAX we asked him if Kobe could ever run afoul of the Lakers brass enough to get his Staples privileges revoked (like getting tossed out of the arena).

Short answer ... HELL NO!!

We should say ... Charles Oakley's ban from MSG has since been rescinded by Knicks owner James Dolan, but if you think it's all good between the two men, think again.

Shelly Sterling Tenant Sues You Fractured My Face!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0217-sterling-injuries-3

Shelly Sterling's got a bush problem and she may be way beyond a landscaper solution.

Shelly's being sued by one of her tenants, claiming her shoddy yard work caused her severe injuries.

Franchesca Cacciapuoti says she tripped over a rose bush that sprouted onto the walkway and suffered a badly bruised face, as well as a fractured nose and finger.

The 84-year-old retiree says Shelly -- who runs the Sterling Family Trust which manages the building -- failed to properly maintain the walkway.

Cacciapuoti's lawyer, Arthur Liberty, says Shelly's gardeners were sloppy, cutting only a stem here and there rather than cutting them all down to the nub. Arthur says the area where Cacciapuoti tripped is dimly lit.

We've reached out to Shelly, but so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

0217_DNCE_backstage_tmz_wmJoe Jonas and his DNCE mates are about to bust into a dance marathon for kids fighting cancer ... and turn the night into a full concert.

We got a pic of Joe and the band backstage Friday evening at THON ... the annual no sleep, no sit, 46 hour dance marathon on the Penn State campus. The event raises millions for cancer research, and this year organizers planned the DNCE surprise.

We're told Joe and co. plan to coolly walk out while the kids are doing a lip-synch battle to "Cake By The Ocean" -- and then launch into a 45 minute set.

Great gig for DNCE and a great cause.

2/17/2017 1:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Roman Polanski's rape victim, Samantha Geimer, says she's sick of victims' rights advocates and others trying to paint her as a pathetic creature ... she's fine and doesn't think rape necessarily destroys lives.

Geimer, who was 13 when Polanski raped her 40 years ago, is solidly in favor of the famed director regaining his full freedom. TMZ broke the story, Polanski's lawyer is going back to court next week, asking a judge to recall the fugitive warrant and rule his client did his time under the plea deal.

Geimer says all she seems to encounter are people who don't want her to be ok, to serve their agenda.
