Johnny Manziel NFL Investigating Hollywood Car Crash

5/23/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-johnny-manziel-tmz-01Johnny Manziel is the subject of an active NFL investigation -- with the league taking a particular interest in the QB's role in last month's Mercedes Benz crash on the Sunset Strip.

We broke the story ... Manziel told police he was the passenger in an S550 that smashed into a light pole after a night of partying back in April. Neither Johnny nor the driver was arrested or charged with a crime.

0520-sub-johnny-manziel-tmz-01Turns out, the car was a rental -- and the guy who owns it is pissed ... claiming Manziel and the suspected driver refuse to pay for any of the damages. 

We spoke with Wayne Schneider -- owner of PCLA (which rents luxury vehicles) -- who says the total damage was $90,000. He claims Manziel promised to buy a new car, but says he hasn't heard a peep from him. 

Schneider says he went to the NFL for help -- and was contacted by NFL investigators looking to gather information on the incident. 

Our NFL sources tell us the car crash probe is part of a "larger Manziel investigation which is ongoing."

However, with Manziel not currently in the league, he's not subject to league discipline -- but we're told the NFL is covering its bases anyway in case Manziel does eventually sign with a team. 

We reached out to Johnny for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Yoenis Cespedes Adds Two New Whips ... To Famous Car Collection

5/21/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


NY Mets star Yoenis Cespedes better clear out some garage space ... 'cause he just got two brand new rides -- but the catch, he didn't pay a single CENT for 'em. 

You already know about his tricked out Lambo, tricked out Jeep, tricked out truck, horse and tricycle ... but Y.C.'s also a hardcore Polaris enthusiast.  

In fact, he's been customizing the 3-wheeled monsters for years -- and has a pretty nice collection. 

But we're told the company was so happy Cespedes put his Polarises out on display during his spring training car show -- they sent him TWO FREE ONES! 

We spoke with Yoenis' pal and car customizer Alex Vega who confirms -- "[Polaris] gave him a 'Ranger' model and an 'Ace' model."

Vega says Polaris also hooked him up with a free "Slingshot" and asked him to pimp it out with one of his trademark "Avorza" makeover jobs because they're interested in creating a special "Avorza" edition to add to their lineup.

5/20/2016 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Manchester City soccer superstar Samir Nasri was rollin' around Hollywood in a $300k Rolls-Royce this week ... not giving a flying [you know what] about his driver's license controversy in France. 

FYI, Nasri is one of the highest paid soccer players in the world ... and has penchant for VERY expensive cars. 

But there's drama back in France ... where the 28-year-old was reportedly named in a police investigation for allegedly illegally buying a driver's licence for 8,000 euros without passing the proper tests. 


Nasri didn't seem phased Wednesday night, when got behind the wheel of what appears to be a Rolls-Royce Wraith and left Warwick nightclub.  

Nice car, bro.

Dick Cheney Just an Average Joe Drivin' a Lexus

5/18/2016 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dick Cheney's life is radically different from his days as Vice President ... for starters he's behind the wheel of his own car, unable to get through a police barricade protecting someone who's currently important.

We got the former Veep in D.C.'s Dupont Circle, where he was trying to pick someone up at a nearby medical facility.

BTW ... he's driving a Lexus ... decidedly un-American.

Chris Brown Video of ATV Antics Cops on the Case

5/17/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown's ATV antics have been captured on video ... which is now in the hands of the LAPD. 

The video -- shot by one of Brown's San Fernando Valley neighbors and obtained by TMZ -- shows Brown and a friend, each on an ATV, and another friend on a 3-wheeler, driving at a high rate of speed in the neighborhood.

As we reported, some of Chris' neighbors are enraged he's been driving recklessly in the neighborhood. They say Brown was doing doughnuts on the street last Wednesday, even on someone's lawn. Brown denies it, but this video was shot the next day. 

The video has been turned over to the LAPD, which has already told us will be sent over to the L.A. City Attorney for possible criminal prosecution for disturbing the peace.

Chris believes the neighbor who shot the video is just angry because he's "rich and black."

BTW ... driving an ATV on a public street is illegal.


Beyonce Uber Strands Fans After Concert ... Exit Stage Lyft

5/16/2016 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516-beyonce-uber-lyft-getty-02Beyonce's legion of fans got caught in a transportation catastrophe after her L.A. concert because the Uber app went on the fritz ... leaving the door open for Lyft, to save the day.

The Beyhive was scrambling for rides after the Rose Bowl gig, and throwing shade at Uber on social media with postings like -- "the beyonce concert was amazing until I had to wait 2 1/2 hours for an uber. NEVER uber to the rosebowl."

We reached out, but so far Uber isn't saying anything about the service lapse. Its main rival, Lyft, saw a big uptick in biz though that night, telling TMZ ... "We're committed to easing congestion for big events."

And it wasn't just normie fans hitching a ride ... Tyga used Lyft too and gave 'em a shout-out -- in between a Prince sing-along.

Big up to @lyft Bee concert was lit🔥

0516_cam_newton_custom_car_launchThis is siiiiiick!!!

Check out Cam Newton's pimped out 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass -- which was custom plated with real 24 karat gold ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We spoke with the people at Monster Customs in Marietta, Georgia who told us Cam brought in the car a few months ago and wanted to fully upgrade the whip ... from the guts to the exterior. 

"We redid the entire car," owner Terry Dobbs told us ... "Fixed the motor. Alcantara leather on the inside with gold stitching in a diamond pattern, new carpet, bigger wheels, new sound system."

And get this ... Cam told the guys that the car would "lean" when some of his bigger friends got in the ride (looking at you, linemen) ... so Monster put a new air-ride system in the whip which levels it out. 

And the crowning jewel -- a custom 24k gold plated panther head on the grill ... along with the initials "C1N."

All in all, we're told the car had roughly $45k worth of work done.

Screw friends in low places when you have Garth and Trisha.

0511_kanye_on_plane_jetsmarterKanye West is a chatterbox on flights, and Kim Kardashian ... not so much -- which you would know if you'd scored a seat next to them on a private jet, like one non-celeb did this week.

Mazen Dayen was flying from NYC to L.A. on Tuesday for a business meeting when Kim and Kanye hopped aboard his JetSmarter. For those of us still flying coach, JetSmarter is like an UberPool ride ... but at 30,000 feet.

While Kim slept the entire flight Mazen tells us 'Ye talked to him about watches, cars and the soaring price of real estate in NYC and L.A. So, basically ... lots of rich people stuff. After all, they were on a private jet.

Mazen says it's not unusual to see celebs on these kinds of flights -- that is if you have the $10k for the annual membership.

It all unfolded Wednesday as Yeezy left a meeting at his Calabasas office. Check out the vid ... Kanye looked excited and amped for the day ahead when he hopped into his Maybach, a more than $200k luxury ride ... that failed to launch. You gotta see his look of despair.

Someone in the Maybach service department got an earful.

LeBron James Teammate Proves ... He REALLY Drives a Kia

5/9/2016 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James isn't full of crap in those commercials ...the guy REALLY drives a Kia -- and his teammate, Richard Jefferson, captured the proof on video! 

When Bron first started endorsing the brand, NO ONE was buying that a multi-gazillionaire like James would really get behind the wheel of a $50,000 Kia K900 ... instead of a Bentley, Rolls, Ferrari, etc. 

But when the Cavs team jet touched down in Cleveland Sunday night -- Bron's Kia was waiting for him on the tarmac (car to jet service?) ... and Jefferson recorded the whole thing. 

Jefferson can't seem to believe it and James was laughing during the clip ...

... and all the way to the bank.
