DJ Khaled to Asahd Here's a $100k Watch, Son!!! Good Luck Wearing It

10/23/2017 9:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled is hooking up his famous son, Asahd, with 2 things for his 1st birthday -- a sick diamond-studded watch, and a ton of patience ... 'cause he can't even wear the watch yet.

Khaled's wife, Nicole Tuck, commissioned Haute Living -- which also threw the birthday bash -- to make a VERY nice watch for Asahd. The piece is laced with more than 600 diamonds which weigh in at 11.65 carats ... all for just over $100k.

We're told the watch is a Franck Muller model in rose gold, with Asahd's name and birth date engraved on the back. It's also adult sized, and seeing as how Asahd just turned 1 ... he probably won't be ballin' out anytime soon. Good to know it's waiting on deck though.

You da best, Mom & Dad!

10/23/2017 6:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Murray's putting his foot down -- want an autograph? Cough up a donation, and $3 is NOT gonna cut it.

We got Bill out in D.C. on Sunday signing his John Hancock and noticed autograph seekers were also handing him cash. Turns out he was signing under one condition -- donate $20 towards hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and you've got a deal.

Check it out ... everyone's on board. Well, almost everyone. Some dude tried getting a discount, but Bill wasn't having it and he gave the guy a sick burn.

Beyonce & Jay-Z Our New Pad's a Money Pit!!!

10/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay-Z aren't done dropping cash on their insane new L.A. estate ... the price tag is inching into the $100 million territory..

The Carters have taken out 2 permits in the past month for work on their recently purchased Bel-Air property -- one to install a backup generator and make a $30k alteration to the pad, and another to add a living area under the pools for around $750k.

Bey and Jay closed escrow on the mansion in August for $88 MILLION -- a dream come true for one new neighbor. But apparently $88 mil only gets you so much.

As we reported ... the couple also went bicoastal last month by gobbling up a baller house in the Hamptons for a cool $26 million.

Good to have choices. 

Cameron Diaz Thanks, Honest Homeless Woman You're More Helpful Than a Fancy Restaurant!!!

10/21/2017 1:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cameron Diaz owes a big fat debt of gratitude to a very persistent homeless woman who tried to return her wallet but got blown off by a fancy restaurant ... but stayed close by 'til cops arrived.

The actress went to dinner Thursday night in Bev Hills at the super exclusive and insanely expensive Matsuhisa. On her way out, Diaz unwittingly dropped her wallet on the street ... cash, credit cards, I.D., the works.

Enter the homeless lady, who saw the wallet on the ground and made the connection that its owner must have dined at Matsuhisa. So, she walked inside -- wallet in hand -- in search of Cameron.

Law enforcement sources tell us someone who works at the restaurant told the homeless lady Cameron had already left ... and that was that.

The homeless woman left the restaurant, but instead of pocketing the loot and running ... she stuck around.

We're told someone called police and told them some homeless woman had Cameron Diaz's wallet. Cops arrived in short order, found the woman, and she was more than happy to turn the wallet over totally intact.

Reward in order?

Rocky III Backup Statue Hits Auction Block ... Could Fetch $1 Mil

10/21/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wanna buy the ORIGINAL Rocky Balboa sculpture from "Rocky III?"

Too bad, it's not for sale. But the BACKUP statue is on the auction block. 

The artist behind the piece, A. Thomas Schomberg, made two versions of the iconic sculpture in the 80's for the 1982 flick ... #1 was used in the movie and #2 was a backup in case anything bad happened. 

The original sculpture from the movie is still in Philly. The backup had been on display for years in the San Diego Hall of Champions, but that place closed down and now Rocky #2 is for sale. 

We spoke with a rep for SCP Auctions -- which has auctioned everything from game-worn Babe Ruth uniforms to Michael Jordan game-used shoes -- and they're expecting the Rocky statue to fetch somewhere between $500k and $1 mil. 

Still interested? Hope you've got a freight truck -- 'cause the bronze Balboa stands at nearly 9-feet tall and weighs 1,800 pounds. 

Bidding ends November 4 ... good luck!!

Boxing Champ Jermell Charlo If Floyd Returns I Want Him First

10/21/2017 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor might have to wait ... another huge fighter says he's gonna take a chunk out of Floyd Mayweather's ass if he returns, and this guy is a boxing superstar.

The guy is WBC super welterweight champ Jermell Charlo, who's fresh off a devastating first round knockout of Erickson Lubin a couple of weeks ago.

Charlo hit the Lakers game Thursday night with Brandon Watson -- co-owner of the Team Watson Boxing Gym in L.A. -- and told us if Floyd (who's been working out) is serious about a comeback, he's down.

For the record, Floyd and Charlo are pretty good buddies -- and Charlo respects Floyd immensely -- but wouldn't you fight your pal for a $100 million payday???

Us too. 

Kim & Kanye Security Team Pulled Guns on Intruder

10/20/2017 11:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who vandalized cars at the bottom of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's driveway learned a hard lesson ... through the barrel of a gun.

Sources connected with the incident tell us the man who broke into 3 cars early Friday morning at the end of their driveway was met with heavily armed Kardashian-West security. We're told it is now standard operating procedure for the family's hired muscle to brandish licensed weapons when an intruder invades the Bel-Air gated property.

Our sources say the second the vandal saw the weapons he scampered away into the darkness and cops are now on the hunt. 

The decision to brandish guns was made in direct response to the Paris robbery where armed gunmen tied Kim up, threw her in a bathtub and stole $10 million in jewelry.

We're told the security and safety of Kim and Kanye's family is a top priority and their team will hold nothing back to ensure that. 

Jason Aldean 'SNL' Performance Released To Benefit Vegas Shooting Victims

10/20/2017 12:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Jason Aldean's using his "Saturday Night Live" opener after the deadly Las Vegas shooting -- a powerful cover of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" -- to raise money for the victims ... TMZ has learned.

The track's available Friday across many digital retailers and streaming services, and will continue to be released on more channels the next few days. Jason also has released "We Won't Back Down" t-shirts for $35. All proceeds will go toward the Direct Impact Fund to benefit victims of the massacre.

As you'll recall ... Aldean appeared on 'SNL' and delivered a defiant message of unity and resolve just days after he was onstage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival near Mandalay Bay when Stephen Paddock attacked.

Kevin Dillon Battles Ex Over Kid's Tuition I Can't Afford Private School!!!

10/20/2017 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Dillon's not going to fork over a dime to his estranged wife to send their daughter to private school, especially since he thinks public school is perfectly fine ... according to new legal docs.

The "Entourage" star says he can't afford to pay his ex, Jane Stuart, any more money for tuition for their daughter Ava -- who's heading into 6th grade -- because he's already paying child and spousal support and living off his savings.

The problem -- Jane believes Ava should attend a private school in Calabasas, where she's gone her whole life, but Kevin thinks a public school in Malibu with a "gold medal" ranking by U.S. News and World Report is more than sufficient ... not to mention more cost-effective.

Jane claims Kevin's out of touch with their daughter's needs ... and she doesn't want Ava to attend the Malibu school because of its alleged drug issues and cancer-causing agents on campus.

As we reported ... Dillon was already ordered to pay $3,174 a month in child support and $7,214 in monthly spousal support to Stuart.

Kim & Kanye Thief Trashes Kardashian Staff Car ... Gets Almost NOTHING

10/20/2017 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's staffer was hit by a crook who ransacked 3 vehicles at the end of their driveway and made a getaway ... but not before surveillance cameras captured the alleged perp.

According to law enforcement sources ... the theft went down around 4 AM PT Friday at their Bel Air mansion. We're told the suspect never entered the home, but trashed the cars at the end of the driveway. After all that ... we're told all he got was one iPhone, which belongs to one of Kim & Kanye's staffers. 

Our sources say security at the house spotted the guy and chased him off. We're told investigators were given this image -- from a surveillance system.

The guy didn't stop with the Wests. We're told he also hit their next door neighbor Kathy Griffin's staff. Again, he trashed a car at the end of the driveway and got a purse.

Guess he was disappointed ... since we're told the purse was ditched nearby.  

Terrell Owens Sues: I Made $15,000 in 53 Seconds ... and I'm Pissed!

10/19/2017 4:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:19 PM PT -- We spoke with a co-CEO of F45 who tells us straight up, "Everything that's been lodged is a total fabrication of the truth."

F45 not only plans to fight the allegations -- but the co-CEO says they will countersue Owens adding, "He picked a fight with the wrong company."

F45 says the company respects Owens as one of the greatest athletes alive -- and thinks he should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame -- but says he's lying through his teeth when it comes to his lawsuit. 

The company notes they have great endorsement relationships with several high profile athletes including Joel Embiid and Harrison Barnes

"We're not a company that doesn't pay our bills."Want Terrell Owens to star in a promotional video for your business? It's gonna cost you. 

TMZ Sports obtained a lawsuit T.O. filed against a massive gym company called F45 -- a bootcamp-style workout studio that offers high intensity, 45-minute workouts.

Owens is pissed because he says F45 approached him to essentially be a spokesperson for the gym -- in a deal that would pay $15k for a promo "hype" video to help get investors. 

He made the video -- 53 seconds long and says he got paid his $15k. 

The problem ... Terrell says the deal was supposed to pay him an additional $25,000 bonus for each of the first 25 F45 franchises that opened in the United States. After 25 locations, Owens says the bonus dropped to $5k per gym. 

Owens claims F45 opened at least 45 locations in the U.S. -- but he didn't get paid a cent of his bonus money and now he's demanding at least $725k to make things right. 

So far, no comment from F45.

Chester Bennington I Want My Kids to Stay Close ... Left $$$ to Make Sure of It

10/19/2017 3:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chester Bennington was all about his modern family -- 6 children from 3 relationships -- and made provisions in his will to make sure they remained tight after he was gone.

According to Chester's will -- filed in probate court in L.A. County, and obtained by TMZ -- he said, "I request that my children's mothers or Guardians encourage and allow my children to visit with one another and with my extended family and the extended family of my Spouse on a regular and ongoing basis, so that my children know that they have a large and loving family."

He instructed the trustee of his family trust to make sure they all get money to cover travel expenses.

Chester and his widow, Talinda, had 3 children together, he had one from his first marriage to Samantha Olit -- and before that, he had one child with a girlfriend in Arizona. He later adopted that girlfriend's other son.

As for how much money the Linkin Park frontman left behind -- that's all under wraps in his trust.

One other interesting note -- Talinda is the executor of Chester's will, but the alternate executor is his former business manager, Jonathan Schwartz. We say former because Schwartz is now doing time in federal prison for wire fraud. He also managed Alanis Morissette, Mariah and Beyonce and was arrested for embezzling millions from his famous clients.

The Weinstein Co. In Financial Freefall Buyer Getting Cold Feet

10/19/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Weinstein Co. is broke as a joke and a review of its books is scaring the one potential buyer who could save it.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, TWC has been out of money for 15 months. The 42% equity interest owned by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, we're told, is worthless.  

What's especially daunting ... a top-to-bottom review of the company and its books has unearthed -- as one source put it -- "a horror story."

We're told the deals the company made -- especially movie deals -- are falling apart left and right. As one source connected to the company tells TMZ, "I haven't seen this much anger EVER in this business. Companies are taking this one personally."

We're told the finances and state of the company are so daunting, Colony Capital -- which has been in negotiations to buy TWC -- is no longer sure it makes sense. Colony fears that even by changing the name and doing a complete personnel change, there's a taint that just won't go away.

One TWC insider tells us, "One thing is certain. If there's any chance for survival, Bob has to go." As we reported, if Colony Capital goes forward, Bob Weinstein will be gently pushed aside to run Dimension -- the film division which is not really a player.
