Johnny Manziel Still Ballin' Out In Pimped Out Rolls-Royce

12/7/2017 7:17 AM PST

No job? No problem!

Johnny Manziel is still living VERY large -- despite the fact he hasn't had an NFL paycheck in a very long time. 

The embattled QB pulled up Wednesday to Barneys in Beverly Hills -- one of the most expensive stores in town -- in the driver's seat of a custom Rolls-Royce. 

Later that night, he hit up Warwick in a Givenchy sweatshirt, which retails for more than $1,000. 

He's also planning a wedding, renting expensive places to live and traveling. So, the question is ... how can he still afford to live so lavishly? 

The answer? Manziel is said to have raked in about $7.8 mil from his rookie deal with the Cleveland Browns -- plus, he made a ton of cash from endorsement deals with companies like Nike and Snickers. 

Plus, the family reportedly has oil money -- though it's unclear if Manziel has access to it. 

Either way ... he doesn't seem worried.

They weren't the only big stars in the club -- Johnny Manziel also rolled through Warwick on Wednesday. 

Fun Fact: All 3 guys rocked designer hoodies to the club -- and get this, Taj's Gucci sweatshirt ain't cheap ... $1,280 on the Gucci website!!!

Meek Mill's Prison Life I Don't Do Windows But Juggling Multiple Jobs

12/7/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill is seriously cleaning up while he's in prison, bouncing between several different jobs ... and doing it at a rate light-years from his rap dough.

Meek's serving his 2 to 4 years at Pennsylvania's SCI Chester ... where he's part of the general labor crew, getting his hands very dirty. A prison rep tells us Meek cleans the cell block, tidies up prison grounds and washes dishes. He also cooks food and serves it up, too!

He does it all with a smile, apparently, while earning just 19 cents per hour. The rep says he's a model inmate who gets some juicy perks due to good behavior.

Meek gets access to electrical and carpentry shops, and he's waitlisted for some therapy courses.

Lemonade from lemons, for sure. We still think he'd rather be poppin' bottles.

Lil Pump My Contract Is Boss Can Afford More Gucci

12/6/2017 3:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump's still a minor, but he's on track to become a millionaire before he can legally drink ... TMZ has learned.

According to the 17-year-old "Gucci Gang" rapper's record contract with Warner Bros., he got a fat $345k advance on his debut album, and that doesn't even include his 15 percent royalties.

Judging by the success of the record -- which also features tracks like "Boss" and "D Rose" -- it's safe to say he'll be making another album, which means another hefty advance between $200k and $400k. Again, plus royalties.

There are a few conditions he has to meet -- such as having at least 14 tracks per album -- but if he keeps cranking out huge hits he'll rake in up to $500k for his fifth album. And don't forget the royalties, too.

Pump's also got some added kickers in his contract -- like a cut of his merchandise sold in chain stores -- so his huge fan base makes his wallet even fatter.

Now that's Boss.

John Travolta's 'Gotti' Biopic Wasn't Dropped ... Just Getting Gigantic Release

12/6/2017 2:02 PM PST
Exclusive Details

John Travolta's "Gotti" biopic wasn't thrown to the wolves by Lionsgate Premiere, but instead bought out by a group that plans on distributing it to the masses, TMZ has learned.

One of the film's executive producers, Keya Morgan, tells TMZ the "Gotti" project was originally supposed to be distributed by Lionsgate Premiere ... a branch of the company that handles smaller, niche releases.

Morgan says his team believes the movie could do gangbusters in wide release and he even believes Travolta could end up with some hardware on his mantle.

We're told the original distro contract featured a buyback clause, so Morgan and others wired $10 million to prove to LGP they meant business and the company forked over the release rights. Morgan says LGP will profit big-time when the movie comes out.

Travolta's flick was scheduled to hit the screens next week, but Morgan says the new plan is to take it to Cannes or Venice first and then release it in at least 1,000 theaters. The release date is uncertain. 

The Getty Center Museum Built to Withstand Massive Fire Threat

12/6/2017 9:41 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Don't expect the famed Getty Center Museum to pack up its billions of dollars worth of art as a raging wildfire gets closer ... because the museum might be the safest place in L.A. to survive a fire.

Getty spokesman Ron Hartwig tells TMZ ... The Getty was built and designed to withstand fires given its fire-prone location on a ridge of the Santa Monica Mountains. The exterior is made of travertine stone and metal, which would make it very difficult for fire to penetrate.

Even the plants around the museum were chosen specifically because they're fire retardant -- and the museum windows have automatic shades draped with water. The building also has a sophisticated air filtration system to keep smoke out of the galleries ... and a water reserve on-site to douse flames.

In fact, the Getty so believes in its systems ... there's NO vault to store the art.

Bizzy Bone ain't dishing deets about scoring in the Bitcoin biz ... but his ear-to-ear grin's the only clue you need to know he's raking.

We got the rapper at LAX Tuesday and asked him about the Bitcoin craze that's sweeping global markets. For those living under a rock -- Bitcoin's a form of digital currency that has seen its worth surge by more than 1,000% this year alone. One Bitcoin alone is now worth a whopping $13k.

Bizzy says the hip-hop community's caught up in the craze ... and for a VERY good reason.

Kim Kardashian's Perfume Line Australians Say Somethin' Stinks

12/6/2017 7:34 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian's Crystal Gardenia perfume line has been a worldwide smash ... problem is, customers in Australia, New Zealand and other countries have plunked down the cash but still don't smell nice.

TMZ has learned the perfume is considered a "flammable/hazardous material" because of its alcohol content and can't be shipped by FedEx and other carriers. Overseas customers have been complaining because there was no warning on Kim's website that there were blackout zones.

Sources connected to Kim tell us she and her people were first told there wouldn't be an issue in shipping the goods overseas. Now that they know, they're in the process of contacting customers one by one who are still empty-handed, promising a full refund. 

At the time of this post Kim's website was not updated with the blackout zones, but we're told that will happen STAT. 

'Duck Dynasty' Star Jep Robertson Duck, Duck, Goose! Letting Louisiana Crib Loose

12/6/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Looks like "Duck Dynasty" star Jep Robertson is gonna be crashing with family if he ever returns to Louisiana for the holidays because he's getting rid of his huge crib on famed Robertson Row.

Jep's listed his 6 bedroom, 6 bath home in West Monroe for $1.4 million. Most of the cul-de-sac is occupied by his famous family.

Jep recently relocated with his wife, Jessica, and kids to Austin, Texas to start his food truck business, which landed him the spin-off show, "Jep & Jessica: Growing the Dynasty."

As for the 6,457 square foot pad he's leaving behind in West Monroe ... it's on a lake and comes with a fruit orchard and chicken coop, which we're guessing is duck friendly, too. The home's also got a 100-year-old fireplace, but that's not as cool as the copper tub in the master bedroom. You'll know it when you see it.

I would not even have a public image if not for Jeremy's tabloid adventures."

She adds, "I am shocked that Jeremy and his attorney attempt to slut shame me as they do."

Melissa says in the 130 days since they've separated he's only had their son for 30 days.

Katy Perry, Archdiocese Win $15 mil Verdict Over L.A. Convent

Breaking News

Katy Perry and the Archdiocese of L.A. just won $15 million.

Katy had a deal to buy a convent from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It's unclear, but it looks like Katy want to use the convent as a home. Thing is, a restaurant owner named Dana Hollister claimed she had already bought the convent from 2 nuns.

The Archdiocese went to the nuns and said they had no right to sell the property. That launched a 2-year battle over who had the right to sell the property.

The jury determined Katy and the Archdiocese had the valid deal and were damaged because it never went through. Katy got $5 million from Hollister and the Archdiocese got $10 million which represented the profit it would have made off Katy.
