Offset Car Accident Cops Wanna Know Why He Left Scene

5/18/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Offset's wrecked sports car is now at center of an investigation, because cops are trying to figure out why he left the accident scene, and if anyone was with him when it happened ... TMZ has learned.

The accident went down around 2:30 AM Thursday in Atlanta, and cops were called to the scene, but not by Offset. Law enforcement sources tell us a passerby reported it. When cops arrived they found the vehicle abandoned ... and called a tow truck. 

Here's what's interesting -- our sources say after the tow truck arrived, 2 people pulled up in another car. We're told one of them took items out of the Challenger before it was towed ... and was heard saying Offset crashed while swerving to avoid a pedestrian who had run out in front of him.

Law enforcement sources say there were no victims, witnesses or damage to other vehicles -- but cops have not been able to confirm the Migos rapper was behind the wheel.

We broke the story ... Offset was briefly hospitalized after the crash, but he's okay. We're told Cardi B rushed to his side. She tweeted about the accident, and Offset's good luck.

'Jeopardy!' Star Austin Rogers Vroom Vroom ... He's Gettin' His Own Show!!!

5/17/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Answer -- This charismatic bartender became a "Jeopardy!" sensation last Fall after winning $411k during a 12-show win streak ... and could be starring in a new TV car show.

Who is Austin Rogers?

CORRECT!

Sources familiar with the project tell TMZ ... Austin's currently in high-level talks with a major cable TV network ... developing his idea for a car show for the "every man."

The series will showcase cars that didn't resonate with the public, but were the precursors to whips that were wildly successful. We're told Austin pitched the 1968 Honda CVCC, which was supper buggy and noisy but became a blueprint for the successful Honda line. He also talks about the Subaru Brat Pickup, which quickly fizzled.  

He'll travel the country looking for rare but inexpensive cars, and when he finds the right one he'll go on a road trip, exploring the city where the owner lives.

There will be no $400,000 Ferraris or tricked-out Rolls-Royces ... just cars that have been long ago rejected by the public but have a great story. 

We're told Austin came up with his idea -- which couples his love for cars with American history -- after his 'Jeopardy' run ended in October and, after pitching it with a production team ... a major network caught wind and has now partnered up.

The show's described as "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" meets "Top Gear" ... and we're told the project is in the funding stage now, but a big announcement is expected soon.

Looks like Austin wasn't lying about Hollywood calling.

Ben Simmons Hops Out the Ferrari with Tinashe ... After 76ers Loss

5/11/2018 11:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The 76ers lost ... but Ben Simmons is still winning in life -- hopping out of his super expensive Ferrari with his smokin' hot famous girlfriend, and TMZ Sports has the video.

The NBA star and his singer GF, Tinashe, pulled up to the Aloft hotel in Downtown Philadelphia in his Ferrari 488 Spider on Friday ... just two days after the Sixers were eliminated from the playoffs. 

They clearly don't look too upset ... and for good reason -- he's young, rich and famous.

Rich the Kid I'm Armed ... With Pizza & Ice Cream

5/10/2018 6:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid doesn't seem too worried about flaunting his wealth while other rappers are getting their chains snatched ... because he's super distracted by pizza and ice cream.

We caught RTK in his brand spankin' new Maybach in Bev Hills Wednesday and wanted to know if he's beefed up security since Offset got his $150k chain stolen out of his hotel room.

Rich was wearing a few around his neck, but the only heavy artillery he admitted to stashing is loaded with dairy. He's livin' the dream, man.

Rich the Kid Check Out My New Maybach!

5/8/2018 7:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hard to tell what shines more ... Rich the Kid's Gucci shirt, his diamonds or his brand spankin' new Maybach!

We caught RTK stepping into his new whip Monday night outside Beauty & Essex in Hollywood. We tried to talk some biz -- he's reportedly signed actual kid rapper Lil Tay. But Rich was more interested in his fresh-off-the-lot car. He says just bought it the day before, and paid ALL CASH.

The luxury ride costs somewhere around $200k, so he's living up to his name.

He even got a driver for the ride -- makes sense at that price point -- but doesn't look like RTK's taking anyone along for a ride yet, which ain't surprising.

Model Khloe Terae Bikini Car Wash ... Ready to Service!

5/2/2018 7:59 AM PDT

Jeep Wranglers don't have your standard trunk, but that didn't stop Playboy model Khloe Terae from putting hers all over one ... and in nothing but a red hot string bikini!

Khloe wiped down the custom job -- it's a Jeep Wrangler JK -- for a photo shoot at DCD Customs in SoCal ... and there's a lot more to these pics than just her fat tires.

The last Wrangler JK rolled off the assembly line in Ohio last week, so there's extra value in this 4X4 ... and not just because Khloe, who's a a big fan of water, gave it a rub down.

And that's your T&A -- tires and ass -- bonus info. Enjoy!

Pete Rose Drives Rolls-Royce Despite $1 mil IRS Debt!

5/1/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Pete Rose owes more than $1 MILLION to the IRS ... but you wouldn't know it by looking at his car -- 'cause the ex-MLB star is still pushing a very expensive Rolls-Royce!

TMZ Sports has obtained pics of Rose's Rolls-Royce Wraith -- a car that usually costs about $300,000!  

And to make sure people know it's HIS car, Pete got a custom license plate bearing his nickname, "Hit King."

Remember, Rose has admitted in court docs he fell WAY behind in federal taxes and is working to repay Uncle Sam the 7-figure debt he's racked up over the years.   

But even debtors gotta BALL OUT IN VEGAS, right?! 

Rose's estranged wife claims Pete makes $100k per month -- but Pete has refuted that claim and says he only makes $54k per month. 

Joey Lawrence Bankruptcy Ain't Crampin' My Style

4/24/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Lawrence officially settled his bankruptcy case, but it's not hurting his game in Hollywood ... at all.

Joey, who got the bankruptcy judge's sign off 2 weeks ago, hit up Craig's restaurant in WeHo Monday night ... an expensive proposition for sure. He left in a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which retails for around $60k minimum.

It's interesting, considering Joey had a 2014 Bentley, a 2016 BMW i8 and a 2015 Ford Flex repoed.

According to the bankruptcy docs, Joey claimed he had $8k to his name in the bank and $60 in cash.

Impressive Hollywood rebound.

Elsa Hosk On Your Mark, Get Set ... GO LEGS!

4/18/2018 11:40 AM PDT

Swedish model Elsa Hosk gets an A+ for imagination because she just put a new spin on the classic checkered flag.

Instead of waving the ol' finish line flag, the Victoria's Secret model waved her legs while wearing a checkered two-piece during a photo shoot Wednesday in Los Angeles.

For anyone wondering ... that gorgeous red vintage Ferrari she's on top of looks like it's a 308 GTS, and it's older than she is. We know what you're thinking ... nice body, but Elsa's got the car beat in that department.  

Markelle Fultz Car Shamed By Ben Simmons' Ferrari ... I Drive a Damn Accord!

4/12/2018 1:01 PM PDT
Breaking News

Markelle Fultz's whip game is SERIOUSLY trailing his on-court abilities ... as the 76ers rookie found out on his way outta the arena Wednesday night. 

You might've heard -- the #1 pick just dropped his 1st NBA triple-double, cappin' off his awesome late-season return for Philly.

But Markelle couldn't really bask in the moment after the game ... not after his Honda Accord got flexed on by Ben Simmons' $280k Ferrari!!

"I gotta step my game up, fellas. I got a triple-double ... it's terrible," Fultz said.

Also pictured was a near-$500k Lambo and $300k-plus Rolls-Royce. Guessing they don't all belong to Ben ... but ya never know.

The Accord, meanwhile, starts at $24k.

Yeah ... probably time for an upgrade.

Gucci Mane Cuts Three Year Line ... To Buy Brand New $600k Ferrari

4/8/2018 11:22 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Gucci Mane ain't close to your regular luxury sports car shopper, not even for one of the newest Ferrari models out -- he jumps right to the front of a long line just like ... this.

Sources tell us Gucci recently purchased a brand new 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast -- which debuted last year ... and has a strict 3-year wait list for average Joe rich folks. Gucci isn't your run-of-the-mill baller though -- he got his delivered within 24 hours of ordering it.

The proud new owner posted a photo of himself with his Ferrari, which got dropped off Sunday morning.

We're told Gucci dropped a whopping $600,000 for the whip, courtesy of Obi Okeke, AKA Doctor Bugatti. Okeke dabbles in high-end rides like this -- just ask Arnold Schwarzenegger and even Floyd Mayweather ... they know what we're talking about. 

Gucci's Ferrari is definitely built for speed -- 800 HP, V-12 engine, goes from 0 to 60 mph in about 3 seconds ... and tops out at about 211 mph. That's what we call getting the bag!

Cam Newton In Car Crash with Dump Truck ... In Ferrari

4/6/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cam Newton was involved in a collision with a dump truck in Atlanta on Thursday ... and TMZ Sports has a photo from the scene. 

We're told the Carolina Panthers quarterback was driving his matte black Ferrari F12 (valued over $300,000) when the collision occurred around 4:00 PM local time. 

Atlanta PD confirms the accident occurred but says neither party wanted to fill out a police report.

Unclear what caused the collision or who was at fault -- but calm down, Panthers fans, Newton appeared to be okay after the incident. In fact, he was seen walking the car around in his shorts and one of his funky hats. 

FYI, Newton is from Atlanta and still lives there. 

28-year-old Newton has been involved in car accidents in the past -- he overturned his car in North Carolina back in 2014. He was hospitalized with minor injuries and ended up being okay. 

Justin Bieber Lambo Practice Makes Perfect ... Especially in Reverse!!!

4/5/2018 10:59 AM PDT

Justin Bieber is somewhere high-fivin' like crazy right now -- or he should be -- because he's finally nailed the delicate art of backing up his Lamborghini!

That's only slightly tongue-in-cheek. Truth is, we've watched the Biebs struggle for weeks to exit Hillsong Church in his $400k Lambo Aventador, but this Wednesday night ... he went for it and scored.

In the past, we've seen Justin bottom out his ride, or make multi-point turns to avoid reversing out of the steep driveway -- but ya can't say the kid doesn't learn from his mistakes. He revved the engine and made a clean exit ... in reverse.

Still, it doesn't hurt to look back at JB's greatest Lambo misses. We should all have such problems.
