Jeff Bezos In Prime Position for Paparazzi

7/20/2018 6:59 AM PDT

Jeff Bezos was a man of no words Thursday night ... as a throng of paparazzi fired off what seemed like 100 questions in 10 seconds.

We got the Amazon CEO in WeHo leaving Craig's ... and he showed rare talent -- somehow walking to his car as if the only thing in the air were birds chirping.

The $150 BILLION man was peppered with questions, ranging from his rivalry with Elon Musk to his glitches with Prime Day earlier this week.

Oh, and one pap asked for an internship. Good luck.

Charles Manson Blood Painting with His Ashes To be Auctioned Off

7/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A creepy Charles Manson painting made with the artist's blood is awaiting an even creepier finishing touch -- the cremated remains of Manson himself -- and then it can be yours.

Artist Ryan Almighty tells TMZ ... he created this painting using his own blood, and was able to obtain some of Manson's ashes from someone who attended the spreading of them ... back in March, near Porterville, CA. 

Ryan plans to use the ashes to fill in Manson's eyes in the painting, and then it will be complete.

The man who provided the ashes gets the first painting and plans to auction off the masterpiece and use the proceeds to make a monument for Steven Parent ... one of the victims of the Manson Family murders. With the remainder of the ashes Ryan Almighty plans on doing a series of paintings that won't be sold, but displayed. 

We'd say buyer beware, but this seems more like a beware of buyer situation.

Jill Scott to Ex Your Stuff's in Storage ... But I'm Keeping the Robes!!!

7/19/2018 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jill Scott says she's done all she can to return her estranged husband's personal items, and if he really wants them he knows where to find them ... but they won't include those lavish robes, 'cause he stole them!

We broke the story ... Michael Dobson filed docs in the ex-couple's divorce case claiming Jill was refusing to fork over a lot of his stuff -- like a "Purple Rain" album, an extended shoe horn and 5 hotel robes.

Jill's firing back with docs of her own -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming she tried to deliver Michael all of his things but got no response, so she sent them to a storage facility in Atlanta where he now lives, AND sent him the key.

Jill claims he's yet to pick up his stuff -- including the shoe horn -- and refuses to make payments for the storage unit ... so she's still stuck footing the bill.

According to the docs, though ... those 5 hotel robes don't even belong to Dobson, because Jill says he stole them and SHE had to pay for them.

Jill's asking the judge to toss his request to return his stuff because she already did ... and she wants attorney's fees for her trouble.

Tekashi69 'My Little Pony' Chain Has Real Human Hair!

7/19/2018 9:42 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tekashi69 is going where no one's seemingly gone before when it comes to the chain game -- not only did he spend $95k on some new bling, but he added human hair to it!

The NYC rapper just threw down for a "My Little Pony" chain covered in VVS diamonds. The pendant alone cost $45k, while the chain was $50k, but the real eye-catcher is the mane ... which came from Tekashi's own colorful mop. Tekashi even had his hairdresser style it.

The owners of SHOP GLD in Miami tell us he ordered it a few weeks ago, but called them Tuesday saying he needed it for the new music video he's shooting with Nicki Minaj.

A limited batch of a smaller version of the chain will be available for fans, but we're guessing those will NOT include 6ix9ine's hair. 

2 Chainz Save My Trap House ... It's an ATL Monument!!!

7/19/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2 Chainz is heartbroken his pink "TRAP" house in Atlanta is set to be destroyed, but he's also fired up to launch a campaign to save it.

The rapper was at LAX Wednesday when we asked what he thought about the owner of the property saying he's planning to demolish the crib. Chainz has a personal connection because last year he rented the place -- known as the Eiffel Tower of ATL.

To be clear, it's no longer a trap house and Chainz says that's why it needs to be spared the wrecking ball. He gave us the lowdown on all the good that happened there while he leased it ... including church services and free HIV testing. 

Tity Boi says the charitable efforts, as well as countless photos and his own music video being shot there ... make the pink trap house a true landmark.

Our guy gave Chainz a suggestion on how to go about saving it and let's just say ... Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms should expect a call real soon.

U.S. Olympian Chloe Kim Rocks New $40k Chain for ESPYs ... 24K Magic, Baby!

7/18/2018 3:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chloe Kim tore up PyeongChang's icy half pipes for the 2018 Olympics, and now she's iced out again for the ESPYs ... rocking a new chain that's worth its weight in gold. 

The U.S. Olympic gold medalist recently hit up celeb jeweler Ben Baller for some new bling to wear to the sports award show ... where she's got 3 nominations, including Best Female Athlete.

Ben whipped up something special for Chloe -- an 18k gold diamond Cuban choker, with 24 carats in diamonds and weighing 300 grams in gold. Oh, and we're told it's valued at $40,000. 

Fun Fact: Chloe Kim and Tom are among the athletes with the most nominations at the ESPYs on Wednesday night. 

As far as Best Female Athlete is concerned -- she's up against Sylvia Fowles (WNBA player) and Julie Ertz (soccer). 

Good luck! 

Kim Kardashian's Co. Sued Over New Perfume Logo ... Eau de Rip-Off??

7/18/2018 2:11 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of Kim Kardashian West's new perfumes -- the ones that put $5 mil in her pocket in just 5 minutes -- uses a logo that belongs to a different company ... at least according to a new lawsuit.

The company, Vibes Media, says KKW Fragrance jacked its speech bubble-like logo for a new Kimoji perfume, which was released on Tuesday. There are 3 different fragrances in the Kimoji line -- Vibes, Peachy and Cherry. 

Vibes Media's beef is only with the Vibes line because according to the suit, its bottle is shaped just like the logo they have hanging in their office -- and the perfume bottle itself is shaped like the logo.

The Chicago-based marketing company says KKW doesn't have permission to use its trademarked logo. Vibes Media wants all of Kim's hot-selling perfume to be destroyed, and it wants damages.

Kim Kardashian West Makes a Million a Minute ... On New Fragrance Line

7/18/2018 11:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian West understands the power of a sequel -- just like a popular movie ... a follow-up to her massively successful fragrance line just made a killing too.

Kim released her newest set of perfumes Tuesday, which consists of 3 fragrances -- Kimoji Cherry, Kimoji Peach and Kimoji Vibes. Without spending a cent on advertising, her new products made a whopping $5 MILLION ... in 5 minutes!

The new KKW bottles go for 45 bucks each, and only social media marketing was used to get the word out for the release. Clearly, it worked wonders.

Kim also sent some candy grams to her celeb friends and her sisters ... with a complimentary fragrance inside.

We're told the amount of bottles available for launch this time around was increased due to the high demand, but just like multi-million dollar launch of her first line ... it's expected to sell out quickly.

As for the 5-minute bonanza ... Kim's been here before. Her cosmetics line hauled in $14 mil at its launch last year, so this could actually be considered just another day in the office ... if you're a Kardashian. 

Floyd Mayweather Blocked By 'Wild 'N Out' Model ... at Celeb Hoops Game

7/18/2018 10:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather learned the hard way ... you drive on Brittney Elena, and you WILL get blocked!!

The boxer was playing The $50k Charity Challenge celebrity basketball game at UCLA on Tuesday -- when he got posted up by the smokin' hot "Wild 'N Out" model. 

Turns out, Elena has SERIOUS game ... and when Floyd when up for a shot, she packed him up good. 

Floyd wanted a foul call -- he didn't get it.  

Mayweather played pretty well for the most part -- aside from being CROSSED UP by R&B singer Tank

By the way, props to all the people who played in the game and raised money for charity. 

As for Elena, she's got a ton of modeling credits to her name -- but when we tried to find out if played college basketball, we couldn't seem to find any evidence confirming it. 

If not ... some big school REALLY missed out. 

Eric Dickerson Patriots Would Be Great Fit For Le'Veon Bell

7/18/2018 8:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eric Dickerson's got the perfect fit for Le'Veon Bell when he inevitably bolts from the Steelers after this season ... and it's going to make Tom Brady VERY happy.

"The Patriots would be a good team," the NFL legend tells us.

Bell and the Steelers missed the deadline (again) on Tuesday to sign a long-term deal ... and all signs are pointing toward the running back leaving Pittsburgh in 2019 for a team that WILL pay him.

Sooo ... Dickerson says the Steelers' loss should be Bill Belichick's gain!

There's more ... E.D. also says Bell's contract demands are going to eventually pay off for guys like Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliott -- and you gotta hear the Hall of Famer's reasons why.

Justin Timberlake Can't Stop the Feeling ... My SoHo Penthouse is Still Priced Too High

7/18/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Timberlake is jumping on the Amazon Prime Day bandwagon and offering up a deal ... slashing the price of his SoHo penthouse Monday by nearly a quarter million.

Justin's now asking $6.75 million for the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath crib. He put it on the market about 5 months ago for $7.995 mil, but dropped the price by a mil in the spring before knocking off an additional $245k this week.

JT purchased the ultra modern 2,600 sq. ft. place for $6.57 million back in 2010. Its neatest feature is probably the wraparound terrace, which is 853 square feet alone. The building also has a gym, garden and parking garage with a private entrance.

Jared Seligman from Stribling holds the listing. 

T.I. Tiny Deserves Her New $225K Whip She's Given Me The Best Gift

7/17/2018 9:15 AM PDT

T.I. says the $225k whip he got his wife, Tiny, for her 43rd birthday is just one item on a long list of things he's gifted her over the years, but she's given him the best gift back. 

T.I. was in the Big Apple Monday and we asked about the Mercedes-Benz S550 he had customized in less than 24 hours for his wife, but T.I. didn't feel like talking specifics.

In fact, doesn't sound like T.I. is keeping track of all the gifts he's gotten his gal of 17 years ... instead, he says he's more worried about her reaction. 

As for what he's gotten in return ... T.I. delivers a seriously good answer. If you need a hint: there's 3 of them.

Amazon Prime Day Sale Crashes Site ... The Dogs of Disappointment

7/16/2018 2:22 PM PDT

Someone's gotta be in Jeff Bezos' doghouse right now with Amazon's huge Prime Day sale crashing the retail giant's website, and the only people who might be celebrating are dog lovers. 

The annual event was doomed right off the bat -- as soon as it started at noon Pacific Time, users attempting to find big bargains, were instead met with error messages due to the site crash. Gotta hand it to Amazon though, because they programmed the error messages to include pics of cute pooches.

Nothing soothes the soul like man's best friend.

Amazon says it's working on fixing the problem, and some users are able to shop now. So, in case you miss the pups, or just need something to make ya smile ... check out these Prime Day doggies.
