World's Greatest Drag Race Porsche, Tesla, Ferrari ... Who Ya Got?

9/25/2017 4:50 PM PDT

****BEFORE YOU WATCH, CAST YOUR VOTE BELOW****

Strap in for a good ole fashioned high-speed showdown between the world's greatest exotic cars -- Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren -- and a Tesla.

It's the seventh edition of Motor Trend's "World's Greatest Drag Race" and this year the big boys from Italy, Germany and Detroit are getting some electric competition. To be fair, the Tesla Model S P100D was the heaviest car in the lineup, but y'know what guys always say ... maybe size doesn't matter.

Pick your winner THEN watch the race for the title.

New 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. Hop On, It's Gonna Be a Wild Ride!!!

9/25/2017 8:46 AM PDT

Former pro race car driver and new 'Bachelor' Arie Luyendyk Jr. knows all about the fast lane and looks like he's already in it with one of the chicks from the new season.

The show started shooting last week in L.A., and over the weekend Arie had one of the hopeful ladies hop on his hog for a ride. We'd say the motorcycle date worked like a charm ... because they were spotted making out later in the day. Race car drivers move fast.

BTW, the cop behind them wasn't pulling them over -- just an escort hired by production.

No word on who she is, but she's one of 30 or so. Arie's gonna need to gas up if he's planning to take 'em all on the road.

Torrei Hart I Got Problems Too ... My Mercedes Got Vandalized!

9/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart doesn't have a lock on drama this week -- his ex-wife Torrei's luxury whip was destroyed while she was at work ... TMZ has learned.

Torrei was shooting her new film, "Perfectly Single," this week on location in L.A. She rolled up in her brand new 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE 43 and parked it on the street. When she came back someone had unleashed their fury on her $70k ride.

Several windows were smashed in, but nothing was stolen. We're told the crew noticed a suspicious white car circling the area for about an hour, and a guy riding by on a bicycle flashed a gun.

Pales in comparison to Kevin's sex tape/extortion scandal ...unless, of course, you're Torrei.

Wayne Rooney Convicted of Drunk Driving ... Gets 2-Year Driving Ban

9/18/2017 5:54 AM PDT
Breaking News

Soccer superstar Wayne Rooney has apologized for driving drunk during a Sept. 1 incident -- after officials say he was more than THREE TIMES the legal limit.

As we previously reported, the English soccer legend was pulled over in Cheshire, England in the early morning on Sept. 1 while driving a VW Beetle with a female passenger.

The 31-year-old Everton striker appeared in court Monday morning and pled guilty to drunk driving, according to the BBC.

The judge told Rooney, "You placed yourself and other road users at risk as a result of your poor judgement that night."

"I accept your remorse is genuine and that you are aware of the adverse affects the events of that night have had, not least on your family."

Rooney was sentenced to a 2-year driving ban and has 12 months to complete 100 hours of community service. 

After the hearing, Rooney issued a statement saying, "I want publicly to apologise for my unforgiveable lack of judgement in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong."

"I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC."

"Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career."

"Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service."

Harrison Ford But I Really Wanna Direct Traffic ... 'GO!! GET OUT!!!'

9/11/2017 1:05 PM PDT

Harrison Ford would make one helluva New York City cop on traffic duty ... judging by the way he handled a tunnel backup in Manhattan.

Ford's Benz got trapped Sunday in between cars entering the Midtown tunnel. There was a pileup inside, and ol' Indiana Jones wasn't down to wait ... so he got outta his ride and started directing traffic!

No clear and present danger far as we can see, except maybe Harrison being late for a flight. You can hear other drivers' disbelief in the video because, quite frankly, it looked like he was shooting a movie the way he barked commands.

"Bridge & Tunnel Fugitive" ... or maybe, "Raider of the Midtown Tunnel." Ya get the idea.

Pope Francis The Shining

9/11/2017 7:36 AM PDT

Pope Francis needs prayer, and a bag of ice.

The Pontiff could have used a little divine intervention before banging his head on his Popemobile.

One minute he was Popin' it up with the masses, and the next he took one to the eye.

The good news ... he got up and kept doing his Pope thing.

You can't keep a good Pope down.

Jay Leno Hi, AAA ... My Exotic Car Needs a New Wheel!!!

9/10/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

How many people does it take to fix a tire on Jay Leno's super exotic sports car? Seven oughta do the job, based on what happened in Burbank, CA.

The famous car enthusiast and host of "Jay Leno's Garage" was spotted roadside on Thursday, looking over the whip which was missing the left rear tire AND wheel. They were in the middle of shooting an episode for Jay's show. It looks bad, but we're told they were just fixing a flat.

Best of all for Jay ... it's not one of his cars. It's called a Kode 0, a fully customized ride based on the Lambo Aventador, which goes 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds ... and he was just driving it for the show.

Jay's no stranger to roadside trouble, so we're sure insurance would cover any damage, and if not ... we think Jay's good for it.

Rick Ross You Turned My Caprice into a Maybach!!!

9/8/2017 3:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross has no business blurting "Maybach Music" on any of his tracks, because he stole it ... so says a rapper threatening to sue Da Boss.

Ishaq Muhammad -- aka Young Muhammad -- fired off a threatening letter to Rick's legal team claiming Rick's use of the phrase "Maybach Music" is a rip-off of Muhammad's "Caprice Music" ... which Muhammad says he trademarked in 2006 ... long before Rick started saying his slogan.

So it seems ... Y.M.'s gripe is that Caprice is a type of car, and Rick just slapped his car of choice on the slogan. As you know, Rick kicks off every track with a woman who purrs the words, "Maybach music."

Muhammad says he'll slap Rick with a lawsuit and demand a cut of his profits if he doesn't back off.

We've reached out to Rick Ross' camp, so far no word back.

Eazy-E's Daughter Happy Bday, Pops ... I'm Rollin' with My Own '64! (Sorta)

9/7/2017 5:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eazy-E may be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten -- his daughter made sure of it by posing for a sexy photo shoot with a Chevy Impala on his birthday.

Ebie slapped on some lingerie and posed in front of the classic car her dad helped make more famous -- all to celebrate his Thursday birthday. Eazy would've been 53.

We're told Ebie did the shoot with legendary West Coast photog Mike Miller, who worked with her pops and other '90s rap stars.

Full disclosure: She posed with a '63 Impala, not a '64. And this'll blow your mind -- Eazy actually drove a '63 himself. Guess it just rhymed better.   

@eazyeog the best ever! HBD #EazyE 📷#MikeMillerPhoto • • • #nwa #compton #eazyduzit #ripeazye

Ebie's gone to bat for her deceased father before, so it's no surprise she was down to do something to remember his name yet again. 

And remember we do ... 

Cristiano Ronaldo Flexes with New $500k Ferrari

9/6/2017 7:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's Cristiano Ronaldo stylin' and profilin' in front of his new supercar ... a Ferrari F12tdf that costs over $500k -- and that's without the crazy specs CR7 no doubt added on.

We're guessing Cristiano got the F12 to celebrate ballin' out for Portugal in the World Cup qualifiers ... dude did pass Pele on the all-time international goals list!

Ronaldo's already got tens of millions of dollars in his garage -- from Lambos to Astons to Porsches ... his biggest splurge before this one was a Bugatti Chiron worth around $3 MIL.

The only athlete we can think of with a comparable car collection is Floyd Mayweather -- who's spent more than $12 MIL on fancy whips ... and that doesn't count his TWO private jets.

Not that they're competing or anything ...

Ryan Phillippe 'Freak Accident' Mystery Solved A UTV Crushed My Leg!!!

9/6/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Phillippe's "freak" leg injury that landed him in a hospital bed was from a UTV running it over ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the "Shooter" star tell us he was off-roading back in July when the utility task vehicle rolled over, so Ryan and a stranger tried to flip it back on its wheels. Problem was -- the parking brake wasn't on, so when they turned it upright it started rolling downhill towards a crowd.

We're told Phillippe rushed to grab the UTV's steering wheel and steer it to safety, but it was moving too fast and yanked him underneath ... causing the full weight of it to run over his right leg and crush it.

As we reported ... Ryan gave a thumbs-up update of his injury shortly after it happened, explaining it was a freak accident and not work-related.

Nipsey Hussle Busted for Bonehead Parking (And Other Warrants)

8/29/2017 6:27 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Nipsey Hussle spent the night in jail simply because he left his ride in a disabled parking spot -- well, that and his outstanding warrants ... TMZ has learned.

LAPD busted the rapper around 9 PM Monday when officers spotted his car illegally parked -- Nipsey doesn't have a disabled placard -- and when they ran the plates, discovered he had warrants for previous traffic violations.

Nipsey clearly ain't sweating the arrest. He was back in the studio at 5 AM Tuesday after bailing out on "some bulls**t" ... as he put it.

Park at your own risk, Nipsey. Or try Lyft.

'Straight Outta Compton' Star 'Eazy-E' Actor Melts Down on Delta ... Where's My First Class Seat!?!

8/27/2017 4:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:20 AM PT -- A Delta official tells TMZ, the airline did NOT overbook. Mitchell was late to the airport and missed his flight, on which he had a first class ticket. Mitchell was flying standby on a later flight -- the flight in question -- and the only seat available was "comfort+." In other words, it was his fault.

The guy who played Eazy-E in "Straight Outta Compton" had a complete meltdown Sunday on a Delta flight ... because the airline double booked his seat.

TMZ obtained video of Jason Mitchell going insane after he realized someone was already sitting in his first class seat when he boarded the plane.

It's pretty wild -- you see Mitchell cussing out flight attendants and the pilot. He even calls him a "pussy" and then unleashes a bunch of "f*** yous" to everyone in earshot. 

Eyewitnesses say Mitchell eventually got off the plane, but not before cops had to get involved. Law enforcement sources tell us ... Mitchell was cuffed and detained when he finally left the aircraft, but Delta refused to press charges and he was released.

We've reached out to Mitchell's reps ... so far no word back.
