O.J. Simpson's Ex-Agent Takes Bronco to 'Pawn Stars' ... Let's Make a Deal!

8/9/2017 11:51 AM PDT
Breaking News

The man who kept O.J. Simpson's getaway Bronco hidden for roughly 22 years wants more than $500,000 for the infamous ride ... and he's hoping to get it from the guys on "Pawn Stars."

Simpson's former agent, Mike Gilbert, got in touch with Rick Harrison in the hopes of unloading the car he got from Al Cowlings following the 1994 slow speed chase on the 405 freeway. 

During the episode, which airs Monday on History, Gilbert told the guys he's had very serious offers in the past -- but wants more than half a mil or no deal. 

The challenge for Rick -- we've never seen him spend that kind of money on the show before. The most expensive items ever sold at the Pawn Shop were gold bars valued at $128,000. 

Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd Will Inherit Nearly $7 Mil

8/9/2017 11:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Carrie Fisher -- who starred in the globally iconic 'Star Wars' franchise as Princess Leia -- left an estate worth nearly $7 million to her daughter, Billie Lourd.

In new docs filed by the executor of Carrie's estate, Billie stands to inherit $6.8 million in personal property left by Carrie. TMZ broke the story, Carrie died after suffering a massive heart attack aboard a flight from London to LAX.

It's interesting ... although $6.8 million is nothing to sneeze at, considering the most recent 'Star Wars' installment featuring Carrie grossed more than $2 BILLION, you'd think her estate might be more flush with cash.

It's possible there could be additional money in trusts not reflected in this probate case ... which Billie could also collect.

Kendall Jenner Unloads Jinxed WeHo Home

8/9/2017 10:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendall Jenner is selling her house of horrors ... TMZ has learned.  

Our sources say Kendall has a buyer on the line for the home that was burglarized earlier this year. It's also the house where a crazed fan followed her up her driveway.

So, after arrests, restraining orders and grief, we've learned Kendall's WeHo home is now in escrow. We don't know what the buyer is paying, but we're guessing if Kendall got anywhere near the $6.5 mil she paid, she's more than happy to make a quick exit.

TMZ first reported, the fam -- especially mama Kris -- was adamantly against Kendall buying the house in the first place, because it wasn't in a gated community and it was perilously close to the Sunset Strip.

Looks like mama was right.

Kylie Jenner Lip Kit's Worth Over $400 Million!!! (If You Believe Kris Jenner)

8/9/2017 7:00 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's well on her way to turning her cosmetics line into a billion-dollar brand ... according to her mom/biz manager, Kris Jenner.

Since officially launching her famous Kylie Cosmetics lip kit line in 2016, inquiring minds wanted to know how well the brand was doing. Well, hold your horses because Mama Bear told Women's Wear Daily the brand, in just 18 months, has done $420 million in retail sales.

Kris -- in an interview with the website last week in her Hidden Hills crib -- provided the figure and reportedly provided the site with documentation. The site reports Kylie's line projects $386 million in sales in 2017 ... putting it on track to become a billion dollar company by 2022.

We shall see ...

The Koch Brothers Helped Pay for 'Wonder Woman' With Bill Gates: Report

8/9/2017 7:46 AM PDT

The Koch Brothers reportedly helped finance "Wonder Woman" and other films with Bill Gates ... and Donald Trump's Treasury Secretary.

The way the story goes ... Steven Mnuchin roped Charles Koch, David Koch and Gates into a production company he helped start to finance movies like 'WW,' "Dunkirk," and Spielberg's upcoming "Ready Player One."

The Koch Brothers struck a $450 million deal in 2013 to become stakeholders in Mnuchin's company RatPac-Dune Entertainment ... and Gates was brought in as an investor for a similar amount, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Although Mnuchin has divested from the company because of his gig in Trump's administration ... the Koch Brothers are reportedly still very much involved. 

Also worth noting ... reps for the Kochs denied investing in RatPac.

Still, it's interesting. The Koch Brothers -- worth more than $96 billion -- are known as backers of conservative efforts.

Wonder how Diana Prince would feel about this. 

Ex-'Dance Moms' Star Countersues Music Producer Used Me It's Abby Lee's Fault!

8/8/2017 2:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-"Dance Moms" star Mackenzie Ziegler is firing back at a music producer who sued her, saying the guy's a fraud who never paid her for her tunes ... and she's laying the blame on Abby Lee Miller.

Mackenzie and her mom, Melissa Gisoni, countersued Kismet Music and its head honcho, Andrew Logan, after Kismet sued the 13-year-old a couple months ago. Kismet claimed she allegedly broke her contract by working with another producer.

In new docs, obtained by TMZ, Mackenzie's attorneys say the only reason she signed with Kismet was 'cause Abby told her it was a bonafide hit maker. The docs also claim the now-jailed Abby strong-armed Ziegler and her fam into it.

Abby is not a defendant in Mackenzie's suit.

As for Kismet saying she owes them dough ... Maddie Ziegler's little sis calls BS on all fronts. She claims Kismet and Logan have none of the accolades Abby hyped, and claims they've grossly underpaid her for the music she's already recorded.

Mackenzie wants the rest of the money she says she's owed ... and her Kismet contract axed.

Kobe Bryant Air Jordan 3s Sell For $30,000 ... 'Extremely Rare'

8/8/2017 12:04 PM PDT
Breaking News

The only pair of Air Jordan 3's ever made for Kobe Bryant has raked in an insane amount of cash on the auction block ... selling for more than $30,000!!

Here's why they're so freakin' expensive ... the kicks were exclusively made for the Black Mamba when he was in between shoe deals back in 2002. According to Nice Kicks, he even tested them out in a couple games that season.

But Kobe never ended up signing with the Jumpman. So, as legend has it, this is one of the only pairs of Kobe Bryant Jordan 3s in existence.

No word on who coughed up the $30,400 for the shoes ... but it's gotta be a big-time Kobe fan.

Usher On His Own in Herpes Lawsuits ... Insurance Co. Wants Out

8/8/2017 11:04 AM PDT
Breaking News

Usher's insurance company put him on notice, with legal papers -- it will NOT pay for the $20 million herpes lawsuit against him if he loses because his policy doesn't cover STDs.

New York Marine and General Insurance Company filed docs referencing the $20 mil case filed in Georgia by a Jane Doe ... who claims she contracted herpes from Usher after having sex with him at least twice this year. The insurer points out a clause in the singer's policy that excludes coverage for "bodily injury ... arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by [Usher]."

In the docs, the company also references the lawsuit filed by celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom on behalf of a John Doe, another Jane Doe and Quantasia Sharpton ... saying it also doesn't want to pay in that case.

The company's also got beef with Usher over the reported settlement he paid to a woman in 2012 for allegedly infecting her. NYM&G says he never disclosed that matter when he signed its policy in 2016, so that's another reason it won't cover him in the Herpes suits. 

To be clear, Usher's insurer says it will pay for his defense in the Georgia lawsuit ... for now. But if the court agrees with its interpretation of Usher's policy, it's not only bailing on him ... but will also expect a refund for any money forked out for his defense.

Snoop Dogg Impostor Disappoints Kids ... Promoter Sued by Charity

8/8/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Snoop Dogg was all set to perform in Bulgaria to raise cash for kids in war zones -- at least that's what the charity org thought before sniffing out what it believes was a $360,000 scam.

Krasimir Dachev -- a rep for Bulgarian nonprofit Peace for You Peace for Me -- filed a lawsuit against Brandon Allen and his company, Rich America. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Dachev says Rich America claimed it could deliver Snoop and Britney Spears for a 2016 benefit concert.

According to the suit, the promoter demanded fees totaling $360k just to secure a date and start negotiations. Dachev says Allen sent a video he claimed was Snoop shouting out the concert. It's obviously NOT the D-O-double-G ... but Dachev says they bought it.

Dachev says they feared fraud when Rich America tried to trade out Brit for Natalie LaRose, and Snoop backed out. They asked for a refund, but Dachev says Allen told 'em to kick rocks.

To be clear ... the REAL Snoop had nothing to do with this.

Peace for You Peace for Me -- who's being represented by Douglas Painter -- wants a big piece of Rich America. They're suing for the lost $360k, plus more than $2.5 mil in other lost expenses.

Elvis Presley once lived like royalty in Beverly Hills -- ya know, 'cause he was THE King -- and now you can too ... if you've got $20k to blow on an epic sleepover.

Elvis' former Bev Hills estate is now for rent at $4,000 a night -- but there's a catch ... you gotta stay for at least 5 nights. If you're 'bout that hound dog life, you're in for a real treat.

The 4-bed, 6-bath crib, which sits on a cliff, features floor-to-ceiling windows and glass walls in every room, plus a huge pool and spa. There's also a guest house out back, and it's still got the OG gates where Elvis used to greet fans in the '60s.

Check out the crib for yourself, bet you can't help falling in love with it.

Neymar Boats 'n Hose!! $35 Mil Yacht Cooldown

8/7/2017 10:06 AM PDT

Neymar hasn't played a single minute for Paris Saint-Germain ... but that hasn't kept the international superstar from getting the boat party started ... chillin' out on a $35 MILLION superyacht!!

The ex-Barcelona stud -- rockin' super bright neon green shorts -- spent the day bro'ing out with friends in St. Tropez on Monday ... wasting no time getting used to his new life in France.

Neymar and his crew were spotted hangin' out and getting soaked by a water hose on the 115-ft. luxury boat, "Ginevra" ... which reportedly sold for $35 million back in 2014.

Neymar wasn't able to play in PSG's season opener due to a paperwork problem, but we're assuming he had yachts of other stuff on his mind.

Neymar is expected to make his debut this Sunday against Guingamp.

Jillian Michaels 'It's a Fraud and it's Extortion'

8/7/2017 8:34 AM PDT

Jillian Michaels was so fed up with a yacht crew allegedly trying to extort her she took matters into her own hands.

We broke the story ... Jillian plunked down $60k for a boat during a 12-day trip along Italy's Amalfi Coast. Problem is ... Jillian says the boat was filthy, and had no hot water or wi-fi.

Then things got scary when the crew started demanding more money for fuel because Jillian said the yacht broker told her the crew's fuel money had been drained "because of Mafia in Capri."

Check it out ... things got very tense when Jillian confronted a crew member, who is clearly pissed he's being recorded. Jillian didn't back down, and still feels she's being scammed. She contacted the U.S. State Department and tells us the Embassy has been helpful.

Neymar Benched for Now ... But How's My $265 Mil Smile, P.S.G.?!!

8/6/2017 12:10 PM PDT

Neymar gave Paris Saint-Germain fans 265 million reasons to cheer in his 1st appearance as a member of the team this weekend ... even though he didn't play.

The Brazilian super star was officially presented as a P.S.G. player Saturday in a match against Amiens SC -- but couldn't take the field 'cause his record $520 million-plus total deal hadn't been registered in time.

Neymar didn't seem to mind though -- the dude's reportedly now the highest paid soccer baller ... ever. Plus, P.S.G. went on to win the game without him at 2-0.

$265 million over 5 years ... not a bad bench fee for day 1.
