EXCLUSIVE

Nick Lachey's all about Encino, man ... he dropped millions for a new crib just days after unloading a pad in the same neighborhood.

Lachey forked over $4.15 million for the 7 bedroom, 10 bath home that belonged to the late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera. Nick and wife Vanessa will have plenty of room to spread out ... nearly 10,000 square feet on 4 acres. 

Lucky for Nick, he had some cash on hand after selling his old crib for $3.995 million earlier this month.

Farrah Aldjufrie from The Agency sealed the deal for Nick. The agent for Jenny's estate was Sebastian Wolski, managing partner of the Ryan Serhant Team Los Angeles. 

And how's this for a nice touch ... Nick and Vanessa wrote a letter to Rivera's family, thanking them for the home.

0624_sherri-shepherd_checks_tmz_instagramSherri Shepherd just rolled out the red carpet for any enterprising thieves on the Internet ... by posting a bunch of checks from fans without blurring their accounts. 

Shepherd says she was doing some cleaning when she came across the old uncashed checks from fans who had purchased CDs at her stand-up comedy gigs. Sherri decided to post 'em on IG and was nice enough to scratch out the fans' addresses, but left the account numbers visible (sorry crooks, we didn't).

The pic was bombarded by comments telling her to take it down, which she did after 45 long minutes. HUGE oops!

Hello? Identity theft dept, please.

Joan Rivers No Kibble, Just Caviar ... Dog Bowl Fetches $14,000!!

6/23/2016 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0623-joan-rivers-christies-auction-spike-dog-bowl-01Joan Rivers turned someone's dog into a major baller ... 'cause Fido's gonna be drinking or eating out of a sterling silver dog bowl that mommy and daddy dropped $14k to get! 

The Tiffany and Co. bowl belonged to Joan's beloved Spike -- a Yorkie with caviar taste, we're guessing -- and it went for 5 figures during a Christie's auction of a bunch of Joan's stuff.  

The buyer, who might love their pet a little too much, is choosing to remain anonymous for now. Christie's thought the bowl would only get about $800. 

It hasn't been used in quite a while -- Spike died in 2001. He was 17.

Tinder Co-Founder Dead 'Wolf of Wall Street' Guy Still Owes Me Rent!!!

6/23/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-main-the-beverly-hills-pad-mls-01Barry Gesser, one of the real-life 'Wolf of Wall Street' guys, has been dead for months but his former landlord -- who's also one of the brains behind Tinder -- still has a score to settle.

Barry rented the Bev Hills home of Justin Mateen for $15k a month back in August. You would think when Barry died in December the 2-year lease would end, but not so ... at least according to Mateen.

The Tinder co-founder has now filed legal docs against Barry's estate, claiming it's on the hook for the balance -- $324k. But that's not all ... Mateen also wants loot for repairs, landscaping expenses and pool cleaning. That adds another $20k.

A little legal lesson. Mateen has a legal duty to make an honest attempt to re-lease the house, and once a new tenant starts paying, the tab stops running on the estate.

NBA's Wilson Chandler Advice for NBA Rookies 'Be Like Kawhi Leonard!'

6/22/2016 3:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

About to be an overnight MILLIONAIRE? Great. Pay attention. 

Don't be a dumbass and blow your fortune like Antoine Walker ... be smart like Kawhi Leonard ... so says NBA veteran Wilson Chandler

WC was a 1st round pick in 2007 and knows exactly what it's like to be a young guy with crazy disposable income.

So, we asked him to give a message for the hoop stars in Thursday's NBA Draft -- and dude dropped some valuable knowledge.

As for Antoine Walker -- he's not embarrassed about blowing $110 MILLION ... but he doesn't want anyone else making the same mistake. 

Nick Young Gets Short End of Stick In Iggy Breakup

6/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-nick-young-iggy-azalea-engagement-ring-02Iggy Azalea drives a hard bargain ... she's also now driving a 1962 Impala that Nick Young has given her as a parting gift.

We've learned that Iggy and Nick struck a deal ... he gets the engagement ring back and she gets the car she had given him for Xmas. 

Here's the breakdown ... the ring is 10.43 carats, and reportedly valued at half a mil.  

As for the whip ... a '62 Impala is a classic ... a cherry one can go for as much as $100k. 

It sounds like Nick made off like a bandit, but here's the twist. In California, and most states, an engagement ring is a gift in contemplation of marriage and if the nuptials never happen, the ring -- by law -- goes back to him.

As for the Impala, it was not tied to the marriage -- it was a Christmas gift -- so he did not have to give it back.   

Now you know, Nick ... for next time.

Former 'Doctors' Host Stylist Wants to Give Doc Dressing Down ... In Court

6/22/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-rachael-ross-dress-damaged-MAIN-getty-01Dr. Rachael Ross, a former host on "The Doctors," threw a hissy fit over her Daytime Emmy dress, ruined it and stiffed the stylist ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Stylist Ali Levine claims in a new small claims court lawsuit she did God's work trying to get Rachael ready for the big shindig last month, only to get the boot without getting full payment.

A rep for Ali tells TMZ, she worked with Rachael, fitting her in a one-of-a-kind Pia Gladys Perey gown, which she says Rachael ruined by smearing makeup all over it.  

We're told the designer went the extra mile and offered Rachael other options, but the doc went all diva, rejecting them all and eventually hiring another stylist.

Ali isn't suing for the ruined dress ... the designer owned it. But she wants full payment for all her time. She's suing for the balance ... $559.75.

Sounds like a good case for "The People's Court." Hint.

1:45 PM PT -- A rep for Gladys tells TMZ the singer "lent her name to her son's restaurants in the Atlanta area, similar to a celebrity endorsement. Ms. Knight was not involved in any way with the operation of the restaurants and she is sure that her son and his business partners will rectify the situation."

update_grey_gray_bar

Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffle restaurants just got shut down by Georgia authorities.

We're told agents with the Georgia Dept of Revenue raided all 3 of Knight's chicken joints Tuesday morning ... clearing out customers and ordering employees to leave.

Agents removed computers, files, and the contents from safes.

Gladys' son -- who runs the business -- is reportedly at the center of the investigation. It appears authorities believe $1 million may have been inappropriately diverted.

We reached out to Gladys ... so far no word back.

Story developing ...
