9/22/2016 6:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0922-swizz-beatz-TMZ-01Swizz Beatz screwed a car leasing company out of 10s of millions of dollars in super expensive whips, including McLarens, Bentleys, Porsches and Ferraris ... this according to a new lawsuit.

The famed music producer formed a car leasing company and used another company -- Metro-Gem Leasing and Funding -- to bankroll the venture.

Metro claims it plunked down millions so Swizz's company could snag the fancy cars, but over a 3 year period screwed them out of millions.

The suit mentions Swizz's wife, Alicia Keys, claiming in 2013 Swizz and Alicia started leasing some of the vehicles for personal use. She is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

The suit alleges massive fraud with 27 vehicles. Metro is asking for $42 mil in damages.

Swizz has responded, "People just do and say anything these days for $ Wow! The crazy part is people also believe anything these days SMH! Going back to bed."

0919_tommy_lee_motorcycle_Crash_launchTommy Lee's big ass motorcycle saved a man's life.

A friend and the Motley Crue drummer were hanging in Malibu over the weekend when the friend asked if he could switch motorcycles and ride Tommy's ... which was much bigger.

It was a lifesaving stroke of luck, because minutes later a car rear-ended the chopper, partially crunching it, and the cycle the guy should have been riding would have been utterly destroyed.

Still ... Tommy's friend was rushed to the hospital and sustained multiple vertebrae fractures. He's expected to recover.

DJ Khaled can make huge hits, Snapchat like a king and also drive the hell out of a Lyft while going totally incognito.  

Khaled recently put on a not-so-intricate disguise, and drove unsuspecting passengers around NYC. Check out the video ... he dropped a ton of very "key" hints, but most of the riders didn't have a clue.

Key to this video -- Khaled's chat about his "sex symbol" beard and, of course, the big reveal.

EXCLUSIVE

0901-jeff-adrien-GETTY-01Dear people,

Don't take cars from hotel valets that aren't yours or you'll be punished ... just like ex-NBA player Jeff Adrien.

We broke the story, the 30-year-old former Timberwolves player essentially stole a Mercedes from a West Hollywood valet stand back in December and took it on a 6 hour joyride.

The REAL owner says Adrien damaged the car and police were called. He was charged with felony grand theft auto. Adrien claimed it was all one big misunderstanding. 

Now, we've learned Adrien struck a plea deal with prosecutors, pleading no contest to misdemeanor unauthorized use of a vehicle -- and got 25 days community labor.

The end.

Tyga Repo Man's Wet Dream ... Bye Bye, Maybach

9/3/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901-tyga-maybach-repo-TMZ-01Tyga should have a rewards card for the repo man -- in addition to his Ferrari, we found out he recently lost a Maybach too!

Sources with direct knowledge of the deal tell us the rapper's 2014 Maybach 62 S Landaulet broke down a couple months ago, and got towed to a Laguna Niguel repair shop. We're told Tyga had missed a few payments, naturally, so the financing company put someone on the job.

We're told a source tipped off the repo man about the $2.2 million whip's whereabouts, and Tyga never saw it again. He had the whip for a couple years though, so as his vehicles go ... that's a pretty good stretch.  

As for Tyga's Ferrari, which Kylie tried to insinuate had not been repossessed -- we got a pic of it back with the rightful owner.

NFL's Damian Swann Arrest Video Please Don't Bust Me ... I PLAY FOR THE SAINTS!

9/2/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports obtained police footage from the night NFL cornerback Damian Swann was arrested in Georgia in which he throws a serious Hail Mary ... asking the cop to give him a break because he plays for the New Orleans Saints!

The 23-year-old was pulled over in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia on March 18th -- with passenger Rico Johnson (an ex-Georgia football player) when cops said he was going 100 in a 65.

Swann told cops he had a firearm in his pocket and another gun in his car (Glock .380 and a S+W .40) -- but that didn't seem to be a problem as he had a valid Concealed Carry Permit.

But when the cop tells Swann he needs to take him into custody, the NFL player did everything he could to try to talk the officer out of it ... to no avail.

Swann also had a bunch of cash on him and a condom ... the cop told him he wouldn't need the condom in jail.

Mike Trout Involved In Bad Car Crash ... Escapes Unscathed

9/1/2016 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

L.A. Angels superstar Mike Trout was involved in a bad crash in Orange County after his game Wednesday night -- but miraculously, the outfielder was NOT hurt.  

The crash occurred around 8:50 PM -- after the Angels defeated the Reds in Anaheim.  

Officials say 4 cars were involved in the wreck on the 55 Freeway -- very close to the Angels Stadium -- and one car was wrecked so badly, rescuers needed the Jaws of Life to cut one person out their vehicle.

Trout was driving a black Mercedes, which suffered pretty significant damage to the front passenger side. 

0901-mike-trout-accident-scene-twitter-01Two people were hospitalized in the wreck. Unclear how serious their conditions are. 

Trout appeared to be okay ... with Angels general manager Billy Eppler issuing a statement saying, "I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine."

"He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available." 

The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the crash. 

In footage obtained by Fox 11's Liz Habib, Trout appears relatively calm at the scene.

Story developing ...

Kylie Jenner Surprise Bentley for Tyga Takes Sting Out of Repo

8/31/2016 5:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner just gave Tyga a very expensive smoke screen -- a new Bentley Bentayga.

Kylie says the $300k SUV was the reason she was at the dealer on Tuesday. She claims the story we broke -- about Tyga's Ferrari getting repo'd -- nearly blew her surprise.

Check out the video ... they took it out to Neuehouse Hollywood on Wednesday night.

KJ was super excited for the Bentley's unveiling, but Tyga was speechless. Probably still thinking about losing his sports car .. and a bit of dignity.

As for Kylie insinuating the repo was a "fake story?" LOL. We've seen the paper work.

MLB's Hector Olivera Orders $3.5 Million Supercar... 0 to 62 in 2.8 Seconds!!

8/31/2016 9:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

MLB player Hector Olivera is giving Floyd Mayweather a run for his money -- really -- 'cause the free agent outfielder is dropping $3.5 MILLION on a one-of-a-kind SUPERCAR.

TMZ Sports spoke with Alex Vega from The Auto Firm, who tells us Olivera was so blown away by the Lykan HyperSport ... that he placed an order for the whip despite the HUGE price tag.

The car's ridiculous. It's the 1st of only 7 that'll be built ... has 780 HP, and goes 0 to 62 in 2.8 seconds!! If you're keeping score at home, it cost a whole million dollars more than Floyd's newest masterpiece.

The best part? Olivera isn't content keeping the car in factory condition. He's tasked Vega with tricking out the HyperSport's interior ... and adding a custom set of Avorza rims.

It's good to be rich!

EXCLUSIVE

Tyga reunited with his old pal the repo man, who made off with the rapper's Ferrari at perhaps the most embarrassing time possible ... right in front of Kylie Jenner.

We're told Tyga hopped in his fancy red sports car Tuesday with Kylie and drove to the Bentley dealership in Calabasas. Little did he know that while they were checking out new whips ... his current one was about to get swiped.

Sources on the lot tell us the repo man showed up armed with a spare key for the Ferrari, jumped in, started it up and headed down the nearest freeway.

We're told Tyga missed a couple of his lease payments, and the lessor wasn't taking any chances.

Don't worry, Kylie and Tyga got a ride home from one of his homies.
