Richard Sherman Undercover Lyft Driver Hilariously Clowns Himself

4/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Check yourself the next time your Lyft driver tries to bait you into talking smack about Richard Sherman -- 'cause the guy might actually be Richard Sherman!

The Seattle Seahawks superstar went undercover as a Lyft driver -- IN SEATTLE -- to see how unsuspecting commuters felt about him. The result is pretty damn hilarious. 

Sherman was dropping subtle hints about his true identity along the way ... including this gem:

"I just came back from Hawaii actually with some of my friends. I try to make sure I go every year. There's like 50 of us. We even see some guys we really don't like so much from work but that's part of the job."

You gotta watch the clip -- the look on the passengers' faces when he reveals who he is ... priceless!

MLB's Yoenis Cespedes I'm Selling My Hottest Lambo ... It Spits Fire!!!

4/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42516-yoenis-cespedes-lamboWanna buy an insane custom FLAME-THROWING LAMBORGHINI owned by a bona fide MLB superstar? 

Listen up ... and grab your wallet. 

NY Mets superstar Yoenis Cespedes is putting his purple 2013 Lamborghini Aventador on the auction block ... the same car that was personally pimped out by Alex Vega at The Auto Firm in Miami. 

As we previously reported, Vega outfitted the ride with a custom exhaust that actually spits fire! Vega has previously called it one of his all-time favorite custom whips. 

So, why is Yoenis parting ways with it? 

"It's a tough car to own in NYC," Vega said.

Bidding on the ride starts at $280k -- though it's expected to go for much more. 

And get this ... the winner also gets 4 tickets to a Mets game plus a photo op with Cespedes and a signed jersey thrown into the mix.

What will Yoenis ride in now? Oh yeah, one of his other gabillion cars.

Rob Kardashian Nailed for Triple Digit Speeding

EXCLUSIVE

0419_rob_kardashian_blac_chyna_blythe_composite

Rob Kardashian's mission to bail out Blac Chyna cost him dearly -- TWO huge speeding tickets, one of which could cost him his license ... that is, if he had one.

Rob told us on Monday he'd lost his driver's license, and hinted it had something to do with outstanding tickets. That's not exactly what happened. We've learned Rob's license expired on his birthday, March 17.

His bigger problem is speeding. You'll recall, when BC got arrested in Texas ... Rob hopped in his Bentley and blazed across the desert to rescue her. According to law enforcement sources, New Mexico cops nailed him on Jan. 30 when he was headed east. 

Then on Jan. 31 -- on his way home with Chyna -- CHiPs clocked Rob doing 107 mph in a 70 through Blythe, CA.

Rob's attorney was actually in court Tuesday, and entered a not guilty plea for that ticket. The expired license is just a trip to the DMV, but getting out of the 107 is gonna be tougher.

41916-bernie-ecclestone-gettyWomen drivers will never be taken seriously in Formula One ... so says the man who RUNS the organization, Bernie Ecclestone

Ecclestone -- the most powerful person in all of racing -- was speaking at an Advertising Week Europe conference in London when someone asked about women drivers. 

"I don’t know whether a woman would physically be able to drive an F1 car quickly, and they wouldn’t be taken seriously,” he said Tuesday according to The Daily Beast

He did however say when it comes to running businesses, "Women are more competent, and they don’t have massive egos."

FYI -- there have only been FIVE female F1 drivers who have ever competed in a Grand Prix ... with the most recent being Giovanna Amati ... who last raced in 1992.

French IndyCar racing champion Simon Pagenaud has had enough ... enough of people confusing him for Sacha Baron Cohen's wacky french driving character from 'Talladega Nights.'

We got Simon at the Grand Prix of Long Beach -- shorty before he won the damn thing -- and asked about his uncanny resemblance to Jean Girard ... Ricky Bobby's Franco-Foe in 'Talladega Nights.'

The resemblance is pretty uncanny ... and SP says he gets heckled and taunted for it all the time ... but tells our camera girl he's ready for it to stop ... FOREVER.

Good luck, dude ... might have to learn to live with this one.

Breaking News

041516-brandon-marshall-gettyJust days after Will Smith was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident ... another NFL star says he was a passenger in a similar situation where things got thiiiis close to getting violent. 

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall just tweeted about the situation ... saying, "My uber driver a G, Somebody cut him off and almost hit him. And he pulled up to the side of him and got out the car and told him to get out."

What's especially scary is the fact Marshall says his driver got OUT of the car to confront the other guy ... it's almost exactly what appears to have happened in New Orleans. 

This time, it appears the situation was diffused before things got violent ... thankfully. 

Stay safe out there people.

'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Star Hospitalized After Car Wreck

4/14/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0413_Lainie_Kazan_crash_accident_launchThe actress who plays the mom in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was taken to the hospital after a nasty car wreck ... and some witnesses say it was her fault.

We're told Lainie Kazan was driving in the Valley Saturday and drifted into an oncoming lane. We're told her Lincoln SUV struck another vehicle head-on. And, of all places, the accident happened right in front of The Great Greek restaurant. For real. 

Our on-scene sources tell us Lainie and the other driver were both conscious afterward -- but you can see in the pics Lainie's neck was immobilized in a neck brace.

Lainie's current condition is unclear -- her rep wouldn't comment. No citations have been issued, but cops tell us the accident is still under investigation. 

Pete Wentz No Special Treatment In Tow Truck Caper

4/14/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0413_PETE_WENTZ_CAR-TOW_INFPete Wentz did not get a shady break from the company that hooked up his illegally parked car and then backed off ... because we've learned Pete pulled out his wallet, paid piper, and it was all legal.

As we reported, Pete's Porsche was parked illegally on a Hollywood street, so a parking enforcement cop ticketed him and then called the tow truck company. The whip was hooked up to the tow truck when Pete walked up to the car and got the tow truck driver to release it.

We've learned Pete followed a little-known law. He paid the towing company's fee as well as an administrative fee. In return the tow truck driver unhooked the Porsche.

We found out tow truck companies will let a driver pay even if their car is en route to the tow yard. The tow truck company wants its money and the costs paid, and the driver gets the car back.

We're told in Pete's case it cost him $237. Not a bad deal.

EXCLUSIVE

041316-manziel-josh-gordon-tmz-gettyJohnny Manziel was a passenger in a car that allegedly hit a light pole and fled the scene in Hollywood this weekend ... and the person who picked him up after the crash was Josh Gordon.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Manziel was interviewed by LAPD about a crash that occurred on the Sunset Strip around 10:45 PM on Saturday night.

We're told ... cops believe the driver of the car was Manziel's good friend Ryan Silverstein -- aka OVO Ryan from Drake's OVO crew.

0413_ryan-silverstien_instagram_SUBLaw enforcement sources tell us ... cops believe Silverstein and Manziel left the scene on foot after the crash -- and were picked up by Cleveland Browns WR Gordon. 

After cops arrived to the crash scene, we're told Silverstein and Manziel came BACK to the area ... and witnesses identified Ryan as the driver because of his recognizable beard. 

Our sources tell us Manziel admitted to being a passenger in the car at the time of the crash -- but he's NOT accused of any criminal wrongdoing. Neither is Gordon for that matter. 

As for OVO Ryan, we're told cops are still investigating him for a possible misdemeanor hit-and-run. 

Attempts to contact Ryan and Manziel were unsuccessful.  

BTW, earlier that night, we spotted Manziel and OVO Ryan outside of The Nice Guy ... where Johnny told us he's living with Von Miller and not doing anything stupid.
