Cleveland Browns superstar Joe Haden is such a huge sneakerhead -- HE JUST BOUGHT AN ENTIRE STORE ... and TMZ Sports has learned he's having a massive grand opening party on Black Friday!
Here's what we know ... Haden has been wanting to get into the shoe biz for a while -- and bought out an existing sneaker shop in downtown Cleveland, which he renamed "The Restock."
We spoke to Joe's business partner David Damier, who tells us ... "It's a consignment-based store. We specialize in offering shoes that you can no longer find in stores. Rare shoes are our specialty."
Doors open on Black Friday -- and David says Joe will definitely be on hand to celebrate ... even though the Browns have a game in Atlanta that weekend.
"They don't fly out until Saturday, so Joe will definitely be there. There will be a bunch of athletes there."
No word if Haden will be selling anything from his personal collection -- which is stocked with some of the most sought-after sneakers ever made ... including Air Yeezys, South Beach LeBrons, Corks, and some ultra-rare Air Jordan VIIs.
I'm a White Chick

You've seen the memes ... and now Iggy Azalea is proving she's got a sense of humor -- by dressing up for Halloween as one of the "White Chicks."
Iggy and her buddy went clubbing Friday as the title characters from the Shawn and Marlon Wayans flick ... and both danced like only the Wilson sisters could.
You may recall ... Snoop Dogg compared Iggy to Marlon's character in "White Chicks" last month during their back-and-forth feud ... and at the time she took offense.
One less problem.

Paging Dr. Luke ...
Report to Gynecology, STAT!
10/31/2014 7:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lily Allen pulled no punches for Halloween -- taking a direct shot at Dr. Luke and the sexual assault allegations Kesha has made against him ... all in the name of her costume.
Lily was sporting scrubs and a name tag that said "Dr. Luke" from the Gynecology Dept. when she showed up at Kate Hudson's Halloween bash Thursday night in L.A.
Lily and Kesha go way back, so it's possible this is Lily's way of supporting her friend.
Halloween -- making alleged sexual assaults fashionable since ... forever.

Terrorizing Malibu ...
With Front Yard Horror Show!
10/30/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
James Cameron's known for sinking millions into big budget action films or sinking ships -- but now he's jumping into the horror game with a sick Halloween display ... worthy of his Malibu mansion.
No 'Avatar' blue creatures, or 'Aliens' monsters -- instead Mr. Terminator went with more traditional macabre scenes. But check out the gallery ... his ghouls, ghosts, and cemetery will put most to shame.
Sadly, JC passed on paying homage to the first feature film he ever directed -- the 1981 cult classic "Piranha II: The Spawning."
C'mon, James ... flying piranhas in Malibu would've been awesome.

Halloween Candy Can Be Deadly
... Just Ask My Bro
10/28/2014 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Some urban myths about dangerous Halloween candy are frighteningly true ... according to Omar Benson Miller, who doesn't trick or treat anymore because it almost killed his brother.
We ran into Omar leaving Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood on Monday night ... and he revealed how some bad candy messed up his younger sibling and several other friends when they were younger.
Watch ... it's a scary story, and the ex "CSI: Miami" star, and travel show host for Esquire TV, even explains why he still doesn't celebrate Oct. 31.
Good food for thought before your Friday night candy haul.
Ray Rice & Janay
We're Praying for the Jerks
Mocking Us for Halloween
10/28/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray Rice and his wife Janay are fully aware of the Ray Rice costumes that have been surfacing this Halloween -- and they're telling friends they're simply praying for the people mocking them.
You've seen the pics -- people dressed up as Ray dragging around an inflatable Janay in an effort to lampoon the infamous elevator attack.
We've spoken with friends and family members close to Ray and Janay who tell us ... the couple is dealing with the unwanted attention by turning to religion.
One source tells us Ray and Janay have said they are "praying for those people."
As we previously reported, Ray and Janay have been extremely involved with their church since the incident ... and were both baptized in March when they decided to become born again Christians.
We're also told Ray and Janay are still committed to the marriage -- and have vowed to maintain their family and rebuild their lives together.

Cryin' Over Uber Long Wait
Or Uber Argument

Two Choices: 1) Audrina Patridge got in a blow-out fight after a Halloween party Saturday night ... or 2) she dissolved into tears because her contacts were hurting her and her Uber didn't show.
Audrina and BF Corey Bohan had just left Hyde when she hit the ground and started bawling. Audrina tells us there was no fight -- she was just pissed because it was clear they'd have to wait forever for the Uber and her contacts were uber-uncomfortable.
Well ... we're not buyin' what she's selling. Take a look at the video. Then you decide.

AFI's Davey Havok
Ray Rice Costume Not Clever
... But There's A Way to Save It
10/26/2014 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Now, THIS is interesting ...
AFI singer Davey Havoc tells TMZ Sports the Ray Rice Halloween costume that went viral is neither clever nor funny ... but there IS a way to save it.
You gotta listen to Davey's idea -- it's definitely clever ... and if executed correctly, could make a very anti-domestic violence statement.
Less than a week for Halloween -- if you still need a costume, this could be the way to go.
