My Morning Jacket Singer Disfigured Me in Car Wreck ... Driver Sues

7/13/2016 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0713-my-morning-jacket-Jim-James-GETTY-02Rock band My Morning Jacket allegedly caused a car accident so bad it disfigured the victim ... who's now taking the guys to court.

Margarito Gonzalez filed a lawsuit against singer Jim James and the band. Gonzalez claims James was behind the wheel of a Mazda 2 driving the other MMJ members in Denver when he struck his car. In the suit, Gonzalez says the singer was driving recklessly and following too closely. 

Gonzalez says James' negligence injured him so badly, it's stopping him from enjoying his life as he did before the 2013 wreck.

Gonzalez is suing for pain, suffering and personal disfigurement and damages.

Ariel Winter At War With Body Shop Over Benz

7/12/2016 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0712-ariel-winter-tmz-01Ariel Winter blasted an L.A. body shop for taking months to repair her wrecked G-Wagon, but the shop's claiming she's just being a snotty celeb.

Ariel posted a scathing review of Paulee's Body Shop on her Instagram Monday ... warning her 2 million followers never to do business with them because the service is "incredibly rude [and] slow" and says the people are "unprofessional [and] intolerable." She says it took 4 months to fix her car. Ariel says if she could, she would give them a minus 10 rating.

Eric, the manager at Paulee's, begs to differ, telling us the car was only there for 2 months, and it needed $75k in repairs because it's a limited edition Benz and parts were hard to come by.

Eric says he still has the car because Ariel hasn't paid. It looks like he wants more than the $75k ... Eric wants Ariel to take down her rant against the shop.

Exclusive Details

Ludacris is such a baller he gave his wife her own holiday and celebrated the occasion with a brand spankin' new Benz!

Luda shocked his wife, Eudoxie, with a 2016 AMG G63 on the set of 'Fast 8' Thursday in Atlanta ... as he masterfully orchestrated what he dubbed, "Mrs. Bridges Day." Check out the vid -- Tyrese made a cameo, but the $160k polar white whip still stole the show.

Note to 'Fast 8' producers: If you need an extra, Eudoxie's ride has a Biturbo V8 and does zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds.

Just sayin' ...

Ghostbusters We're the Ones You Call for a Lyft!

6/30/2016 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Ghostbusters" fans can roll up to the club in full Peter Venkman swag ... for a couple days anyway.

Ecto-1 replicas will be on call to Lyft riders July 1st and 2nd, but you gotta request GhostMode. 

It's similar to what Lyft did with DeLoreans for 'Back to the Future' day, but better since the Ghostbusters deal will be in multiple cities -- L.A., NYC, San Fran, Boston and Washington D.C.

We got one of the Ectos rolling through Bev Hills Wednesday night, and even Jeff Beacher was impressed, along with Paris Hilton -- who is busy launching her new fragrance 'Gold Rush.' They both took time out to admire the ride.

Lyft's expecting this is to be very popular, so it's also wrapping Toyota Highlanders to look like the car. Small consolation, but it'll lower your wait time.

Kim Zolciak I'm Not Selling My 'Lazy' Daughter's Car

6/30/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629_Brielle-Biermann_jeep_instagramKim Zolciak did not put her daughter on blast by calling her a deadbeat and selling her car to teach her a lesson.

Someone posted on a car sale website that Brielle's 2013 Jeep was up for sale for a reasonable $50k. The seller's description had these choice words, "This car belongs to my lazy daughter Brielle Bierman."

It looks legit enough ... there are even pics of the Jeep in the driveway of the former 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star. One of the photos was taken from the other side of Kim's gate.

We spoke with Kim, who says the Jeep's not for sale and she's looking into the person behind the post.

They went Bentley shopping Tuesday and couldn't keep their hands or lips off each other. Kylie was test driving a convertible as Tyga rode shotgun.

Our Bentley spies tell us Tyga was giving her advice about the car ... ironic since his Bentley got repo'd in February

They left without buying.

EXCLUSIVE

French Montana is putting people in the driver's seat of his favorite exotic sports cars, virtually ... which means there's zero chance you'll get nailed with a ticket.

IM3 Gaming Studios, the same folks who designed The Game's "Block Wars," modeled French's new mobile app, "Speed Gods" ... after the famous Gumball 3000 celeb race.

We're told players get to race through NYC, Miami, L.A. and Vegas streets in Lambos, BMW i8s and other fancy whips. The project's personal for French -- who rolls in Maseratis and Ferraris on the reg.

0628_french_montana_ferrari_instagram_subHis pals Diddy, DJ Khaled and Rick Ross make cameos in the game and there's an homage to his late protege, Chinx Drugz.

The app drops July 15 and, like Game's app, it's free -- but add-ons will cost you .99 cents to $99.

Apps and emojis -- hip-hop's new gold chains and Henny.

Calvin Harris Damn Near Rips Door Off His SUV!!

6/27/2016 5:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Calvin Harris is in the market for something new -- a door on his luxury SUV, after nearly destroying his ride ... all in front of cameras.

Calvin was leaving his Bev Hills gym on Monday when he started backing up his Range Rover, but had no clue his back door was still open. Check out the video ... this is gonna hurt, especially for Calvin. 

Apparently, he went off on the bank of photogs who were waiting for him, saying they're the reason he jacked up his Range -- but later apologized for the tantrum.

Let's face it, Calvin can afford the repair. Or even a new vehicle altogether.

Anton Yelchin Death Triggers Class Action Jeep Lawsuit

6/24/2016 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0624-anton-yelchin-jeep-fiat-chrysler-TMZ-01Anton Yelchin's horrifying death is now the centerpiece of a class action lawsuit filed by Jeep owners who says they've been betrayed and suffered economic loss in the wake of the actor's death.

The suit claims Fiat Chrysler knew about the defect in the shifting device for at least 2 years but concealed the information, resulting in dozens of injuries and very possibly Yelchin's death.

The suit targets what it says is "one of the most basic safety features in every car" -- the gear shifter.

TMZ broke the story ... Yelchin died after his jeep rolled backwards, pinning him against his security gate. His 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee had an e-shift, and there have been chronic problems with drivers unwittingly leaving the car in neutral but thinking it's in park.

The suit claims a variety of damages, including the loss in value of the vehicle as a result of the publicity ... clearly referring to Yelchin.

Verne Troyer was gifted the whip after using it as a prop in a commercial for UK gaming company BGO. After the shoot the company's CEO, Richard Skelhorn, shipped it to Verne as a thank you.

This is no toy dinghy either -- the 160 pound mahogany ride has an electric motor, full nautical lighting and one of those awesome yacht horns. Retail price ... $5,000.  

It's even got a bilge pump in case it takes on water in the deep end of the pool.
