Brad Pitt

Has a 'B PITT' License Plate

... Or Does He?

1/13/2015 6:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

011315_brad_pitt_launchBrad Pitt wants everyone to recognize him on the road, which is why he has the license plate, "B PITT" ... yes, it's ridiculous, but our photog Charlie bought it hook, line and sinker.

Here are the clues Charlie:

1.  Brad probably doesn't shop at the Gelson's in Marina del Rey.  
2.  Pitt famously rides around town on a motorcycle wearing a helmet, which he keeps on for cover even after he dismounts. So red-flagging his identity on a license plate is highly improbable. 
3.  There's no reason for Brad to tool around town with a walkie talkie.
4.  Come on Charlie, it's not Brad Pitt.

Brad Pitt aside  ... it's fun watching people park their cars.

Cures Break-Up Blues

Jordin Sparks sent a clear message to her ex, Jason Derulo -- take your Beemer and shove it ... 'cause I just bought my OWN new wheels. new 4X4 to help get over the rocky split.

Last Christmas -- when they were still banging -- Derulo santa'd up and gave Sparks a flashy BMW ... complete with bows. But Jordin just went out and scooped up a Jeep Rubicon Unlimited for her 25th b-day.

And just to make sure everyone got the diss -- she also deleted Derulo's gift her from Instagram. She's said in interviews she would give it back.   

The only remaining question: what does she do with all those big ass bows?

Paul Walker Dad Suing Roger Rodas

Paul Walker
's dad says Roger Rodas' family is holding $1.8 mil worth of his son's exotic car collection ... and he's demanding the cars or cash immediately. 

Paul Walker III filed legal docs claiming the estate of Rodas -- who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT when he and Walker died -- is in possession of numerous vehicles belonging to his son.

In the docs, he says the cars were all fully or partially owned by Paul. Of course, Roger and Paul co-owned Always Evolving ... a performance and racing shop.

For what it's worth, Rodas' family already rejected the claim -- so it looks like a judge will have to sort this one out.

Justin Bieber

Private Jet Poser ...

He Doesn't Own It

12/29/2014 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1226-bieber-priavte-jet-INSTAGRAM-01Justin Bieber's membership in the private jet club has been revoked -- his baller plane he posted on Instagram Christmas day was all for show, but technically ... NOT a lie.

TMZ has learned the jet Bieber posed on is a G4 -- which is for sale -- but was not purchased by JB. Sources with direct knowledge of the aircraft tell us Justin merely chartered it for a Christmas flight from Canada to NYC. In other words ... just a really expensive Uber.

Justin captioned the pic ... "New jet for Christmas, and she's beautiful" -- prompting many to believe he'd just made the biggest purchase of his life. Not so ... though it's true that it was new to him, and the 22-seat ride is undeniably beautiful.

We were always skeptical ... since Justin's reportedly worth about $200 mil -- and a brand new G could run up to $60 million. Even for Bieber, that would be a huge hit.

Biebs pulled this back in April too -- posing with a Bugatti (it was Birdman's) ... and a yacht (it belonged to a FL family).

1229-justin-bieber-yacht-SUB-INSTAGRAM-01The good news? We're told the 1996 G4 is still on the market for just under $6 mil -- if you've got it like that.

The guy who smashed into Jennifer Lopez's brand new Rolls-Royce was bombed -- nearly twice the legal limit -- and now could face time behind bars ... according to prosecutors.

The L.A. County D.A.'s office is charging Robert John Reitz with two misdemeanor counts of DUI for the September rear-ender on Pacific Coast Highway -- and they say his blood alcohol content was an astonishing .15.

0928-jlo-rear-ended-instagram-SWIPE-01You'll recall JLo and her pal Leah Remini were cruising in Jennifer's Rolls at the time of the accident. They posted a pic of themselves looking fabulous ... just seconds before Reitz hit them and fled the scene.

Reitz faces 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

NFL Star Antonio Cromartie

My Car Vanished

So My Wife Bought Me a Better One!

Exclusive Details

1225-antonio-cromartie-car-instagram-01

Question: What happens when you're pimped out 1975 Chevy Caprice mysteriously goes missing?
Answer: You replace it with an even PIMPER one!

At least that's how problems are solved in Antonio Cromartie's household ... where the Arizona Cardinals star's wife just surprised him with a pretty bad ass classic whip.

Long story short ... Cromartie loves classic cars and had a customized '75 Caprice that he LOVED in San Diego back when he was with the Chargers. But when he left for the NY Jets, the car went missing.

Fast forward to 2014 ... Antonio's wife Terricka knew A.C. missed that car -- so she surprised him with a new one for Xmas ... a '73 Caprice with red leather interior, a soft-top roof and 20-inch custom rims with red trim.

"He had been looking for one for a while so I surprised him with it," Terricka tells us. We're told Antonio immediately fell in love with the car and already has plans to trick it out even more!

But when we asked how much cash she dropped on Antonio's new ride, she replied ... "Money doesn't matter. I love him and he deserves it."

1st Rule of "Private Jet Club" ... TELL EVERYBODY ABOUT PRIVATE JET CLUB!!

After Justin Bieber showed off the brand new set of wings he got himself for Xmas, his pal (and boxing trainer) Floyd Mayweather welcomed him to one of the most elite clubs on the planet.

"@JustinBieber Welcome to the Jet Club!" Mayweather wrote.

1226-bieber-private-jet-christmas-INSTAGRAM-01"Yes, I got a 14 passenger jet. Got to give them another reason to hate, but I will motivate the people that are ambitious and want to be winners in life. I am guilty! "

He continued, "I'm materialistic & I'm motivated by money...but GOD is first in my life. GOD will not give you anything you can't handle. That's why GOD gave me the best hands in the business to pray with, box with and count money with."

Good to see he's stayin' humble ...

WWE Sheamus DeLorean

WWE superstar Sheamus may not be a champ anymore, but he's still living like one -- dropping a bundle on the crown jewel for all exotic car lovers ... who also happen to love "Back to the Future."

Our sources tell us the Celtic Warrior went searching for a DeLorean last weekend -- and hit up Just Toys Classic Cars in Orlando for a test drive. He clearly fell in love with it on the spot ... 'cause he scooped it up for around $55K. 

Unclear if Seamus is a "Future" fanatic ... but he can forget about a road trip to 1955. The seller tells us the car -- which is more than 30-years-old -- has a "tough time getting to 88 miles per hour." 

Buyer beware! 

Fun fact: In "Back to the Future III" ... Marty Mcfly's great-great-grandpa's name is ... Seamus!

The interior ... burgundy Italian leather with white stitching -- plus 10-inch monitors on the back of the front seats.

Plus ... 20-inch rims (we're told Wesley was adamant about dubs.)

IndyCar Owner

My Crappy Sponsor

Crippled My Racing Team

12/24/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1223-bryan-herta-autosportsAn IndyCar team owner -- whose driver won the Indy500 in 2011 -- claims he's being hosed by his biggest sponsor ... who bailed on a $2 million deal AFTER he covered his car in their logo.

The man behind the suit is Bryan Herta -- a former racer who owns the Bryan Herta Autosport racing team which competes in the Verizon IndyCar series. 

Herta claims he struck a $2 million deal with the people behind Integrity Energy Drink back in April -- and immediately plastered the company logo all over the team's car ... complete with a fluorescent green paint job to match the Integrity colors. 

But according to a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ Sports, Integrity failed to live up to its name ... and only forked over $470k in payments. 

Herta claims he went after company honchos for the money -- and got an email from the CEO apologizing for the payment problems ... but NEVER got the remaining $1.53 mil. 

In the suit, Herta claims the lack of funding put his squad at a "severe competitive disadvantage" -- forcing the team to scale back important race prep to save money. 

Herta is demanding the remaining $1.53 mil -- plus damages. 

A lawyer for Integrity tells TMZ Sports ... "Any allegations made against my client should be viewed with high scrutiny.  There is more to this situation than just a simple allegation. There exists evidence to counter any claim made by the claimant."
