It's been a year in the making, but Shaquille O'Neal finally got his massive custom bike from the guys at Orange County Choppers ... and judging by the pics, it was definitely worth the wait.
Shaq first placed his order with Paul Teutul Sr.'s shop back in January -- asking for his ride to be taller and longer than normal to accommodate his arthritic hips.
Now, we've learned the shop came through in a huge way -- delivering the 14-footer (most bikes are 10-feet long) to Shaq earlier this month -- and The Diesel LOOOVED IT.
The bike is insane -- chromed out ... with a Superman logo right on the handlebars
We're told footage of Shaq getting his bike will air on "Orange County Choppers" on Discovery on December 11th.
'True Jackson' Star Sues
I Got Slammed in the Rear Twice!
11/24/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"True Jackson, VP" star Danielle Bisutti was rammed from behind TWICE in 3 months ... and now she's dragging two L.A. drivers to court.
According to legal docs, Bisutti claims her back was injured twice in two crashes back in 2012 and 2013. She says in both cases she was stopped when the driver rear-ended her, and in both cases she says she suffered a permanent disability.
Bisutti -- who also starred in "Curse of Chucky" -- has an interesting problem. Apparently she has a hard time separating which driver caused which injury, so she's filed a single lawsuit against both drivers and she'll let the court decide what's up.
Hopefully, the jury will have her back.
I GPS'd My Ex
But I Thought It Was Legal!
11/21/2014 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Thomas Beatie believes he had every right to track his ex-wife ... so says his current fiancee, who insists the famous "Pregnant Man" LEGALLY GPS'd the woman's whereabouts.
Amber Beatie tells TMZ ... after Nancy Beatie threatened to take off with Thomas' kids ... he secretly placed the GPS tracker on the car she was driving.
We're told Thomas did his own legal research and concluded GPSing her was fair game under Arizona law. He put the tracker on 2 years ago but she didn't discover it until recently.
Turns out he was right ... he was allowed to put the device on the car 2 years ago because at the time he was the registered owner.
But Thomas transferred title to Nancy more than a year ago, and at that point cops say keeping the device on the whip is plain 'ol criminal stalking ... which is why he was arrested.
Beatie was released from jail Friday morning.
Ticketed for Driving While Black
11/18/2014 5:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie Jenner is getting to know the entire LAPD police force one by one ... because another cop just pulled her over and wrote her up.
The 17-year-old was driving her Range Rover in the San Fernando Valley when the patrol officer lit her up because her tail lights were not up to code. The whip was tricked out and the black covers over the red tail lights didn't cut it.
The non-moving violation is the latest in a string of vehicular hijinks ... she's been in 2 accidents, ticketed 3 times and sued once.
At least she's not dating a 24-year-old. Oh, wait ...
Slaps Tupac Lyrics
On $500K Lambo!!
11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown knows how to suck all the value out of a perfectly good $500,000 Lamborghini ... hire someone to slap lyrics from a Tupac song all over the formerly sexy ride.
Chris' inspiration for his latest paint job was Tupac's "Lord Knows" -- and it took artist Huero 16 hours to hand paint the song lyrics on the car's roof and hood.
Give CB credit for one thing -- he made sure Huero didn't use any f-words or n-words in the final product ... y'know, to keep it kid friendly. That's classy ... gangsta style.
Of course, you remember some of Chris' previous lambo work -- the multi-colored Hot Wheels version, the powder blue, and the one covered in fingerprint residue.
Ferruccio Lamborghini ... continuously rolling in his grave since Breezy learned to drive.
Ends Car Dealership Job
'He Was a Helluva Salesman'
11/17/2014 6:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Josh Gordon's 10-week stint at an Ohio car dealership was NO JOKE ... the guy worked his ass off and was a big part in several car sales ... multiple employees tell TMZ Sports.
The Cleveland Browns wide receiver has been reinstated -- and is officially back with the team -- which means he will no longer be working with the sales team at Sarchione Auto Group in Ohio.
It seemed like the gig was a joke at first ... but we're told Gordon took the job seriously and treated the whole thing like a very serious apprenticeship.
"He was totally into it," one employee tells us ... "He was very patient with customers. He answered their questions. Josh knows a lot about cars."
We're told Josh often shadowed one of the owners -- spending most of his time at the Chevrolet dealership -- and showed real potential when it came to working in the car biz.
"He was working a full schedule. 8AM to 8PM Mondays and Thursdays ... 8AM to 6PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. He also worked 8-3 on Saturdays."
We're told several of Gordon's teammates visited the WR on the lot -- unclear if any of them actually bought a car.
But get this ... Cleveland Cavs player Mike Miller leased a car from the dealership ... and we're told Gordon had a lot to do with the sale.
"You can tell he's looking at the business long term. He's a really nice kid."
Cancel Concert After
Tour Bus Kills Pedestrian
11/17/2014 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys cancelled a concert in Tulsa scheduled for Sunday night after their tour bus struck and killed a pedestrian very early that morning.
The band was headed from San Antonio to the airport in Dallas when they say someone ran onto the highway and in front of their tour bus. The band says cops told them they suspect it was a suicide.
With their tour bus too damaged to continue on, and the bus driver severely shaken up, they tried to find other ways to Tulsa in order to make the gig ... but came up short.
A makeup date has yet to be announced.
Wrecks Truck in Brutal Race
11/16/2014 3:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner got tossed into a Mexican ditch, and is lucky to be alive ... after wrecking his million dollar ride in the legendary Baja 1000 off-road race.
Bruce and his son Burt Jenner were taking part in the brutal competition -- in which multiple drivers and spectators have been killed -- when their suped up truck rolled on Thursday.
We're told Bruce was behind the wheel around mile 170 ... when he veered into the ditch and ripped off the power steering line. He and Burt had to wait a few hours for their crew to make it to their location.
As we previously reported ... sponsors and investors sunk a million bucks into the truck so Bruce and Burt could race.
During the break, the Jenners drank beer and ate pizza with some locals. When the crew showed up the team leader said they'd have to pull out of the race because -- keeping it real -- they lost too many hours after the wreck. They had no chance of winning.
At least Bruce still has his gold medal.

Patrick Schwarzenegger one-upped his fitness legend dad during a bike ride -- and even flashed one of his new GF Miley Cyrus' trademark moves.
PS and Arnold Schwarzenegger went cruising around Santa Monica Friday on their bicycles -- and for some reason ... Patrick was towing an extra bike. Even with the extra cargo ... he was leading pops.
Note Patrick's form -- tongue out. Looks like Miley's rubbing off in more ways than one.
As we previously reported ... the duo was spotted locking lips at a USC football game this week.
'Love & Hip Hop' Star
It Wasn't Me, Babe!
But Here's a Brand New Car Anyway
11/15/2014 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Being on "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" just cost Mally Mall $250K -- in the form of the brand new car he had to buy his girlfriend to repair their relationship after a full season of reality show BS.
Mally Mall just scooped up a 2014 Bentley Continental coupe for his gf Nikki Mudarris. We're told the rapper/producer's dodged most of the serious drama (as in, physical violence) through Season 1 -- but felt guilty Nikki had to deal with some cast gossip about him.
Pretty sweet trade off for Nikki ... who's gotta be used to drama, anyway. She manages a bunch of strip clubs in L.A and Las Vegas.
Strippers = Drama.
Pissed off L.A. Homeowners
Waze is the Devil!
11/14/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Waze app is destroying neighborhoods in Los Angeles ... so claim some very pissed off homeowners.
There have been several neighborhood meetings in the last few weeks around the city because some posh neighborhoods have become as congested as the freeways around rush hour.
Even if you don't live in L.A. you've probably heard about the legendary traffic jams on the 405. That freeway has caused thousands of motorists to rely on Waze to find shortcuts, and a glut of cars are ending up on the same side streets and it's become a nightmare for homeowners trying to leave.
So the neighborhood meetings are all about torpedoing the Waze App, and they think they found a waze.
Here's the plan ... since Waze is based on crowdsourcing, residents are uniting to report congestion in their area so cars are rerouted to other streets.
It's starting to catch on ... with the possible end game that motorists will go back to where they came from ... the 405.
Miley Cyrus and Arnold's Son
Proof They're Banging ...
Or Just Driving Together
11/13/2014 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger drove home together from an event Wednesday night in Hollywood ... which must mean they're totally doing the nasty, right?!
Miley and Arnold's son were seen leaving a Q&A at the Egyptian Theatre for a new movie produced by Maria Shriver called "Still Alice" ... before getting into a ride and peacing out.
Might seem like thin evidence. .. but Patrick admitted in 2011 Miley was his ultimate celebrity crush -- and it's not like he's bad looking or anything.
John Wayne Bobbitt
Neck Broken, Dong Intact
11/13/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
John Wayne Bobbitt got cut off again ... and this time he suffered a broken neck.
JWB was driving to his brother's house in Buffalo Tuesday when another car ran a red light and T-boned his jeep. John suffered a broken vertebrae in his neck and a slipped disk.
We're told he should fully recover.
John notoriously beat his wife Lorena -- so she claimed -- and she got revenge in 1993 by cutting his penis off. Doctors reattached his schlong and John went on to do porn and screw scores of chicks.
We're assuming his penis is in fair condition.
