'LHHA' Star Karlie Redd Sues Dealership ... You Jacked My Porsche & My Bling!

5/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Karlie Redd says 2 men broke into her garage and jacked her beloved Porsche, and she's suing a car dealership for organizing the heist.

Now, the dealership -- Vanderhall Exotics of Houston -- would call it your run-of-the-mill repo ... but in docs, obtained by TMZ, Karlie says her 2014 Panamera was straight stolen. She says she'd made $43,300 worth of payments on the car she purchased for $57,397 -- but on February 28, around 2:53 AM, the men forced their way into her garage.

In the suit, she says they also got into her house, stole an unspecified amount of jewelry and clothing ... and then bolted with the Porsche. Karlie says she called police and, through an app, traced the car back to the dealer in Texas.

The dealership claims the car was lawfully repossessed, but Karlie strongly disagrees. She's not demanding the return of the car, but she is suing to get back all the money she'd paid on it.

We've reached out to Vanderhall Exotics, so far no word back.

Taraji P. Henson Maserati Massacre on Movie Set

5/25/2017 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taraji P. Henson crashed a Maserati into a fire hydrant ... and the hydrant won.

Taraji was in Lawrence, Massachusetts Sunday on the set of her movie, "Proud Mary" ... shooting a scene where she was behind the wheel of the super expensive sports car. She had done 4 takes without incident, but on the fifth she cut the wheel too hard and slammed into the hydrant.

The "Empire" star was not hurt, but the Maserati was definitely the worse for wear. The hydrant had just gotten a fresh coat of paint so that's down the drain, but otherwise the car suffered way more damage.

Sounds like it was definitely an action shot ... they had been filming an explosion scene the entire day.

One production source said she wasn't the best driver. The good news ... we hear the movie is awesome.

As for the damage, a Maserati expert tells us it'll cost around $12k for proud Mary to keep on rollin'.

Sig Hansen Arrested for Assault Allegedly Spit on Driver

5/18/2017 12:39 PM PDT

3:55 PM PT -- Hansen tells us, "I am terribly sorry for my behavior and am very embarrassed by it. I owe a bunch of people apologies, first and foremost to our Uber driver, who was just trying to get us home safely. I hope I can make that apology in person. I have no excuse, and accept responsibility for my actions. I made a boneheaded move last night, and I am sorry.""Deadliest Catch" captain Sig Hansen's been hauled off to the brig and is facing charges of assault and property destruction after a spat with an Uber driver ... TMZ has learned.

Hansen got into it with the driver early Thursday morning in the Seattle area. According to the police report ... the app canceled his ride, even though Sig was already in the car with his family. The Hansens say they offered to pay the driver $100 to complete the trip, but he refused, saying it was against Uber rules.

Hansen got mad and allegedly spit on the driver's head and the back of the driver's seat, then got out of the car and kicked it. The driver left and called cops. When officers arrived they saw several drops of fresh-looking spit on the back of the driver's headrest and a dent in the car.

When they went to Hansen's home ... cops say he was "obviously intoxicated," and told them he was celebrating Norwegian Independence Day. Cops say Sig initially denied any wrongdoing, and tried to walk back inside his home.

Officers stopped him, and put him in cuffs. Sig offered to pay any damage to the car's driver, but denied spitting. He was booked into King County Jail, and will be released on $2,000 bail.

Sig is also screwed with Uber, which tells us, “Violence will not be tolerated on the Uber app. We have been in contact with our driver partner, and the rider no longer has access to the app."

Youngsta and 2 other men surrendered Tuesday in Charlotte after warrants were issued for their arrest. The shooting went down back in February as Dolph was riding to his concert. More than 100 rounds were blasted into his SUV. No one was injured, most likely because the vehicle was heavily armored.

Young Dolph told us back in March ... he thought Youngsta was targeting him in a jealous rage. He also said the $300k he dropped to bulletproof his SUV was the best money he'd ever spent.

Can't argue with him on that one.

In the end though ... he drove off without a dreaded yellow slip of paper. The cop let him off with a warning. While Kendrick was tight-lipped about why he was stopped ... the cop clued us in.

It's good to be the Kendrick. For sooo many reasons.
