Mischa Barton

Repo Man Coming For Her Audi Q3

9/30/2015 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mischa Barton better put her brand new Audi Q3 in high gear if she doesn't want the repo man to take it back ... because she hasn't paid a dime on her lease in 4 months.

Mischa signed the car lease at the end of March. She put down $2,300 and agreed to $696.29 a month for 3 years ... but she's only made one payment. 

According to legal docs, the leasing company got impatient and demanded she return the Audi, but she didn't. So now the leasing company is turning up the heat, demanding full payment -- $40k.

Barton's financial problems are well-documented  ... she sued her mom Nuala back in April, claiming the momager pocketed a big chunk of her earnings and even forced her out of her own house.



Paul Walker

Daughter Sues Porsche

He Was Burned Alive

9/28/2015 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-paul-walker-meadow-walker-porsche-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Paul Walker survived the impact of the crash that took his life but suffered horrifically as he was burned alive ... this according to a wrongful death lawsuit his daughter has filed against Porsche. 

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- lawyers for 16-year-old Meadow Walker claim when the Porsche Carrera GT crashed and broke apart, Paul's seat belt "snapped Walker's torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis," and trapping him in the passenger seat.

The suit claims the fire didn't erupt for 1 minute and 20 seconds after impact, but Paul was helplessly trapped.  When the fire broke out, Paul was still alive.  The suit alleges, "Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned."

Law enforcement said the cause of the crash was speeding -- 80 to 93 MPH -- at the hands of driver Roger Rodas. But the lawsuit says Rodas was only going between 63 and 71 MPH when it careened out of control. And the suit alleges the car would never have careened if it had a proper stabilization system.

Meadow's lawyers claim Porsche knew the Carrera GT had "a history of instability and control issues."  

Meadow's lawyers say the defect could have been corrected with a Porsche Stability Management System (PSM), which prevents swerving. They say the company intentionally decided not to install PSMs in the Carrera GT, even though it was standard in many other models.

The suit raises other issues with the car, including claims there were deficient side door reinforcements and fuel lines that did not adequately protect the car from erupting in flames. 

Meadow's lawyer, Jeff Milam, tells TMZ, "The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn't belong on the street.  And we shouldn't be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas."

The wrongful death lawsuit does not put a figure on damages.



Fetty Wap

Pushes the Limits on Motorbikes

9/28/2015 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fetty Wap has no fear of riding dangerously when he's on a motorcycle, which was evident during a recent music video shoot -- and a possible warning of what was to come.

Fetty was at Platinum 84 Gentleman's club in Denver on Sept. 14 ... with Chris Brown and French Montana, and spent most of the day riding a dirt bike for the music video. 

Sources on set say Fetty was riding carelessly, even when they weren't recording -- zipping between people and vehicles while doing tricks without a helmet.

Of course, riding on a set is different from the open road, but we're told it was clear Fetty is an extremely confident rider. 

Cops are still investigating this weekend's accident in Jersey, but law enforcement sources tell us it appears Fetty is at fault for the crash.

breaking news


Fetty Wap's been hit with 3 tickets ... one for every break in his leg after that motorcycle accident.

Cops in Paterson, NJ -- Fetty's hometown -- cited Fetty for driving without a license, no insurance, and failing to produce registration for his bike.

As we told you ... Fetty wrecked while attempting to pass a car on Saturday. He slammed into a car going in the opposite direction, and says he fractured his left leg in 3 places. 

Deontay Wilder

Move Over Mayweather ...

I Got a Gator Skin Lambo!

9/26/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925_Deontay-Wilder-lambo-launchHeavyweight champ Deontay Wilder wants to be the next Floyd Mayweather Jr. -- and already has a great a record, a title belt, and now he also has a baller exotic car to rival some of Floyd's.

Wilder's defending his PBC Heavyweight title Saturday night in Vegas, and sources close to the champ tell TMZ Sports he'll have a great prize waiting for him at home -- a brand new Lambo Aventador.

We're told Wilder dropped a grip of cash -- $560,000 to be precise -- on the 2015 whip, which retails for a paltry $398k. Wilder jacked up his price with some Alabama custom touches, like wrapping it in gator skin! Relax, it's not real gator ... just a print. 

Wilder, known as the Bronze Bomber, also got Michael Koss at Exotic Euro Cars to slap on a coat of bronze. We're told Deontay bragged to Koss, he would knock out his Saturday night opponent, Johann Duhaupas

It's a good bet. Deontay's 34-0 ... with 33 KOs!

MLB Star Hector Olivera

Post-Defection Perfection ...

$50k To Pimp Out Maybach

9/26/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Braves slugger Hector Olivera just came to America a year ago, but he's clearly exercising his freedom of swag ... dropping $50k to pimp out his 2016 Maybach.

Hector signed a 6 year, $62 million deal earlier this year, and dropped  a chunk on the ride. But standard features weren't enough. He went to the Auto Firm in Miami to make it truly special.

Auto Firm boss, Alex Vega, says he added red and black Avorza "Honeycomb" leather, AV9 custom 23 inch wheels, plus state-of-the-art navigation and rear entertainment systems.

FYI -- the Maybach set Hector back $200k, so there's only one thing we can say about spending an extra $50k just to make it your own ...

God Bless America.

Pope Francis

Let's Make a Deal ...

Pushing Fiat Sales

9/24/2015 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0924-pope-getty-01What does Pope Francis have to do to get you in a Fiat today? The answer is, not much -- just cruising D.C. in one is enough to drive in customers. 

The Pope shocked everyone when he touched down in Washington on Tuesday by scooting around town in a black Fiat 500L ... apparently reppin' for Italy, and millions of people took notice.  

Safford Fiat of Tyson's Corner -- the biggest dealer in the D.C. area -- has been slammed since the Pontiff arrived. General sales manager, Mark Cowdin, tells us customers are pouring in to learn more about his Excellency's whip.

0924-sub-fiat-pope-stafford-fiat-01Mark says they didn't get a heads-up from corporate about Francis' chauffeur-driven wheels, but they're scrambling to roll out "Papal Deals." He says the Pontiff's visit hasn't scored them a sale yet, but thinks that will change with all the interest and the slogan -- "If it's good enough for the Pope, it's good enough for you."

We were thinking, "Fiat. Holier than thou. Plus we don't lie about emissions!" 

By the way, interesting that Fiat once hired Charlie Sheen to tout its cars. Guess they've covered both ends of the spectrum now.

Pope Francis

Cruisin' D.C.

... In a Fiat!

0922-pope-francis-fiat-GETTY-01Pope Francis just arrived in the not-so-holy land of Washington, D.C. and he's keeping it European and austere ... chauffeured in an Italian-made Fiat. 

Francis touched down Tuesday afternoon at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland before heading to the Vatican Embassy. Sticking true to his nickname of "The People's Pope" .. the Fiat 500 starts right around $20k.

Fiat motors tweeted "#blessed."

Kind of blows the Jennifer Lopez Fiat commercial away, right?

0917-main-the-wynn-ferrari-getty-01The world famous Penske Wynn Ferrari showroom at The Wynn in Las Vegas needs shelter, because they're getting evicted.

Our Wynn sources say the hotel mogul has been frustrated that he's not making the best use of the 10,000 square foot space inhabited by the high-end dealership. In other words, Wynn can make a killing renting to someone else.

So the dealership has till the end of the year to skedaddle.


The Wynn's Ferrari showroom was the only dealership in Nevada. Guests had to pay $10 to browse ... Ferrari owners oogled for free. 

But Ferrari fan fear not ... Penske Ferrari already has a new home lined up at Towbin Motorcars in Vegas.

Exclusive Details

0917-ben-stein-car-accident-uber-WENN-01Ben Stein learned the hard way, even with a private driver ... you can end up in an ugly car accident.

We're told Stein was in the backseat of an EmpireCLS SUV in Bev Hills when someone in a Prius flung open their car door ... striking Stein's vehicle.

We're told cops didn't show up because it was so minor -- the drivers exchanged info and left.

Ben sat patiently and the driver took him to his destination. He's fine.

One thing's for sure ... Ben didn't look too impressed ... but does he ever?


Brad Pitt

Third Reich Bike

9/16/2015 8:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916-brad-pitt-getty-01Brad Pitt just bought himself a little piece of history ... a hard to find World War II Nazi motorcycle.

The enemy bike didn't come cheap ... $385,000. 

0916-sub-brad-pitt-bike-mirror-01Pitt's apparently become obsessed with war memorabilia since starring in films like "Fury" and "Inglorious Basterds."

The Mirror reported he found the double-seater in Athens. It was originally used for WWII recon missions in Crete and has been stripped of its Nazi decals. Only 500 of them exist and they're considered collector's pieces ... appreciating in value as time goes by.

It looks to be in pristine shape. Germans ... they make good rides. 

MLB Star Yoenis Céspedes


Creates 3-Wheeled Monster

9/8/2015 5:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Mets superstar Yoenis Cespedes channeled his inner Xzibit ... and PIMPED THE HELL out of his new ride -- a custom built 3-wheeled beast that he's now trying to sell.

Cespedes hooked up with Alex Vega from The Auto Firm in Miami to design a 2015 Polaris Slingshot ... which they stripped down to the studs and rebuilt with custom everything. 

The end result is pretty cool ... a sick Avorza sound system, crazy lower LED lights that turn the street blue, a turbo kit for extra power and a special Avorza air ride suspension. 

We're told Yoenis' MLB contract prevents him from driving the car -- but he loves designing custom rides and figured it would be a fun project. 

Now the guys are selling the whip -- asking price is $75k. 

Hope you saved up.
