Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.


Gucci Mane & 2 Chainz Throwing Stacks All Over ATL Strip Club

10/21/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and Young Dolph shook off a near-shooting incident to fire off Benjis upon Benjis inside V Live Atlanta.

Our sources say the rappers dropped $60k combined on the evening's entertainment ... and all stayed until closing time. You can tell from this video, they weren't the least bit rattled by gunshots near their music video set earlier that night.

We're told Gucci arrived with his girlfriend, Keyshia Ka'oir, but spent most of his money on FAME (best known as Ph*** Fame) -- one of the most popular girls in the biz.

Gucci's been on a roll this week, or maybe that's Rolls.


Johnny Manziel Crappy Details In $350,000 Lawsuit ... Animal Poop & Debauchery

10/20/2016 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_johnny-manziel-tmzNew disgusting allegations against Johnny Manziel -- who's being sued for more than $350,000 for allegedly treating a $50 MILLION mansion like a giant litter box ... according to a new lawsuit. 

As we previously reported, Manziel's at war with the guy who owns the famous Weidlake Mansion in the Hollywood Hills ... where the QB allegedly stayed for most of the summer. 

According to the lawsuit, Manziel and his pal entered an 8 month lease to stay at the pad but disappeared after 3 months ... after causing more than $187,000 in damages. 

"Defendants ravaged the plaintiff's home," the suit reads ... "They broke doors and mirrors, and failed to clean up and immense amount of dog feces and urine that was left throughout multiple rooms of the house for days, if not weeks."

The owner claims the pee and poo left an "overwhelming stench and permanent staining to expensive couches, hardwood floors, rugs and carpets."

The owner claims he reached out to Johnny to fix the issue and Johnny texted back taking full responsibility.

"This is on me %1000," one of Johnny's alleged texts reads ... "I cannot apologize enough." 

The owner says Johnny also promised to cover the damages saying, "I'm a man of my word."

Problem is ... according to the suit, Manziel and his roommate never fixed the problem -- plus they moved out after 3 months and still owe $125,000 in unpaid rent.

Johnny has adamantly denied any wrongdoing and says he never signed any contract that would put him on the hook for rent or any other damages. 

Val Kilmer I'm Your Huckleberry If You Buy My Gold Tumbleweed!

10/20/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-val-kilmer-art-gallery-FACEBOOK-01Val Kilmer's turning tumbleweed into gold, and a small fortune ... TMZ has learned.

Val is selling an actual tumbleweed he bronzed and dipped in 22k gold ... for a cool $150,000. Luxury boutique Just One Eye got the piece Tuesday in L.A.

We're told the piece -- aptly titled "Tumbleweed" -- symbolizes Val's childhood growing up in New Mexico. His granddaddy was a gold miner, so the art's got family roots. Plus, "Tombstone" ... 'cause that movie's awesome.

Good news for interested buyers, it comes with a Val signature. 


Jackie Christie I'd Gladly Help My Daughter with Medical Bills ... If She Asks

10/19/2016 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-takari-lee-christie-jackie-christie-TMZ-FACEBOOK-01'Basketball Wives' star Jackie Christie says she did NOT refuse to pay for her granddaughter's medical bills after the child was badly burned in a daycare accident ... and says she's more than willing to help. 

Jackie's been taking heat ever since her estranged daughter, Takari, set up a GoFundMe page last month to raise $3,000 to help pay for treatment for her 8-month-old daughter. 

Takari said she was suffering serious financial hardships and was having a hard time finding the money to get her kid the proper help. 

Matt Barnes and Evelyn Lozada reportedly kicked in more than $3,000 each -- but people are mad at Jackie, claiming she should have paid for everything in the first place. 

But Jackie tells TMZ Sports ... Takari has cut HER off and never reached out for help in the first place. Had she called, Jackie says she would have been more than willing to fork over a check. 

Jackie also says she's given Takari a ton of money over the years and she should be more than able to cover a $3,000 bill. She feels Takari went public with the money plea to try to embarrass Jackie. 

Long story short ... Jackie says if Takari truly needs help, pick up the phone and call your mother.

Ed Hardy's Christian Audigier Sorry, Kids ... I Left My Sperm Behind!!!

10/19/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_Christian-Audigier-tmzEd Hardy's late, great designer, Christian Audigier, left his $250 million fortune to his wife and 4 kids ... but if any kids are born from the sperm he left behind, they also get a piece of the pie.

Yes, sperm is front and center in the the legal docs filed with the court. Nathalie Sorensen, Christian's widow, has dibs on the sperm and can "use however she sees fit."

Nathalie was Christian's longtime GF and married him on his death bed.

Here's the rub. If Nathalie uses the sperm to have kids, they will get the same share of the estate as Christian's living children, which means with each baby they get less.

Nathalie hasn't said whether she'll grow the fam, so for now the sperm sits in a freezer at a cryobank, and his children worry.

Tyga Kylie Makes Me Sick If You Ask How Much I Spend On Her

10/18/2016 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyga went into serious medical distress mode Tuesday morning when the lawyer for a jeweler started asking him questions about how much loot he shells out for GF Kylie Jenner.

Celeb jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills hauled Tyga into a hearing to determine if he has enough money to satisfy a $200k judgment for a fancy chain and timepiece.

Tyga, who flipped off our photog and aimed a pretend gun at him on the way in, was pretty accommodating, telling Jason's lawyer, Boris Treyzon, about his income and what he owns. But then Treyzon started grilling Tyga about various gifts he's given Kylie, and that triggered a 911-type emergency.

We're told Tyga said he started feeling extremely ill, lost memory and became confused, telling the lawyer he just couldn't go on.

The tricky part ... Kylie has cooed openly on social media about various gifts she's received from her BF, including a Mercedes as a birthday present. If he can afford that, he can afford to pay Jason. But, if Tyga says he didn't give Kylie all that stuff, he's effectively saying she's a social media liar.

The hearing's been rescheduled for November 1st ... the same day Kylie's set to come in for a separate interview. 


DeAndre Jordan Lists Insane $12 Mil L.A. Mansion ... Indoor Hot Tub??

10/18/2016 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_DeAndre_Jordan_house_for_sale_launch*DOPE MANSION ALERT* ... courtesy of NBA superstar DeAndre Jordan -- who's selling his massive Pacific Palisades estate which comes with a basketball court and indoor, outdoor hot tubs! 

The place is awesome ... 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms ... with killer views of the ocean AND the city. 

But the best parts -- the basketball court rules, the home theater is sick, the wine room is massive, the backyard is the ultimate party area ... PLUS he's got a hot tub and pool INSIDE the home! 

And all this could be yours for the low low price of ... $12.4 million! (listing agent is Jordan Cohen of RE/MAX Olson & Associates Inc.) 

DJ actually bought the home last year for $12.7 mil -- and it's unclear why he's moving, but we're guessing he'll find another nice pad soon enough. He can afford it.

Harry Shearer 'This Is Spinal Tap' Studio's Been Ripping Me Off

10/18/2016 9:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1018-this-is-spinal-tap-EMBASSY-PICTURES-01"This Is Spinal Tap" star and co-creator Harry Shearer says he's been getting the short end of the stick for the legendary movie ... to the tune of $125 million.

Shearer's production company just filed suit against Vivendi -- which owns Universal Studios -- and handles accounting on all merchandise and music related to the 1984 mockumentary. According to docs, Vivendi claims the movie's 4 creators -- Shearer, Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Rob Reiner -- were only owed a whopping $81 for merch, and $98 for music sales ... up until 2006.

Think about it ... that's $179, split 4 ways! The numbers are astoundingly low, if the lawsuit is correct. Shearer -- who also does a ton of voices on "The Simpsons" -- has a two-part solution.

First, he wants Vivendi to fork over $125 mil. Then, he wants his own company, Century of Progress Productions, to take over the film's trademarks.

Doesn't sound like they're gonna do Stonehenge tomorrow.

Tupac Workout Bench for Sale ... $100k Piece of History

10/18/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

death_row_rec_equp_launch.JPGThe old Death Row Records gym equipment Tupac once used is up for grabs, and the seller wants a king's ransom for it.

A little backstory ... when Death Row went bankrupt everything in the office was sold -- from Suge Knight's engraved cigar cases to the famous electric chair ... it all went to the highest bidders.

The gym set -- which Tupac used for his 1995 post-prison interview on MTV -- went for $1,166. We're told the buyer actually pumped iron with gear ... but is now hoping it can score him a heavy sack of cash on eBay. The starting bid is $100k.

Check out the pics ... it's hardly Gold's Gym quality equipment, but Gold's probably doesn't have a bench where Tupac planted his ass.

Billy Bush Officially Done at 'Today' ... NBC Pays Up

10/17/2016 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017-billy-bush-nbc-tmzBilly Bush and NBC have reached a financial settlement on his "Today" contract ... officially ending his employment with the network after the Donald Trump tape leaked. 

Sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations tell us Billy is happy with the final numbers ... which are confidential. As we reported, Bush had just joined NBC's flagship show in August, signing a 3-year deal for $3.5 million per year.

NBC suspended him after the "Access Hollywood" tape came out 10 days ago. Our sources said Bush felt the punishment was unfair because he'd openly talked about the tape in front of his bosses ... and was never disciplined.

We're told he felt like a scapegoat and was cut loose purely for PR reasons. 

An NBC memo to staffers said, "While he was a new member of the TODAY team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. We wish success as he goes forward." 


Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale Officially List Bev Hills Home ... For $35 Million

10/17/2016 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018-gwen-stefani-gavin-rossdale-house-splash-01There might be a silver lining to Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's divorce ... they'll profit more than $20 million off their Beverly Hills home if they get the $35 million asking price.

TMZ has learned Gwen and Gavin have finally listed their 7 bedroom, 7.5 bath home for $35 million ... not an uncommon price for that part of town.

They purchased the stunning 15,500 square foot pad in 2007 for $13.25 million, and tried to get rid of the property last year as a pocket listing, but it didn't seem to budge. They're now working with realtors Jade Mills and Stephen Shapiro, who were responsible for the Playboy Mansion sale. 

As for the home ... it's a modern masterpiece with an infinity pool, hot tub, gym, theater, tennis court, several fireplaces and even has an outdoor kitchen. It's nicknamed "The Summit" because it sits inside a gated community atop of a hill ... which means the place has killer views. 

It's community property ... so they'll be splitting the profits.
