Thomas Gibson Looking for Cars in Audi Wrong Places

8/25/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0824-thomas-gibson-getty-01Thomas Gibson says he's just one of many Americans who got screwed by Volkswagen's massive recall last year, and now he wants to settle the score in court.

In a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ ... Thomas claims an L.A. dealership, and VW by association, lied to his face when they told him his 2012 Audi Q7 offered him horsepower, fuel efficiency AND clean diesel.

He says those claims were BS, noting the feds found VW -- Audi's parent co. -- passed government emissions tests under false pretenses ... which lead to its recall of roughly 11 million cars worldwide.

Thomas -- who's freshly unemployed -- says he's opted out of the class action suit against VW. He's going all lone wolf, presumably because he thinks it'll net him more dough out of zee Germans.


Wes Scantlin Gives Bomb Squad Major Headache

8/23/2016 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0823-wes-scantlin-TMZ-01Wes Scantlin scared the crap out of his neighbors by pulling a Wile E. Coyote plot that made his car look like a bomb ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Puddle of Mudd singer took matters into his own hands after his car was broken into multiple times. We're told the scheme -- involving 2 vehicles -- was pretty basic: a radio under one car with wires leading into the motor, and the second car had wires from a door to the gas tank.

Rather than scare off crooks, it terrified neighbors who called cops. The bomb squad came out and evacuated 4 surrounding buildings in the WeHo neighborhood.

As you can imagine, cops laid into Wes for the stupid idea, which drained valuable police resources.

He wasn't charged with a crime, for once. He needs to go buy The Club. 


Chris Brown Off the Hook for ATV Joyride

8/22/2016 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-chris-brown-tmz-01Chris Brown just scored a W in his legal battle with his pissed off neighbors -- who, for some reason, backed down and now the LAPD's dropped its disturbing the peace investigation.

Law enforcement sources tells us Chris won't face any charges for allegedly disturbing the peace back in May ... when he was accused of terrorizing the streets of his neighborhood on an ATV.

You'll recall ... there was even video of a joyride taken by one of his neighbors. We're told the one who ended up calling cops didn't want to cooperate, so LAPD decided to close the case.

You gotta wonder why the neighbors suddenly went soft. One of 'em was on "TMZ Live," and seemed determined to go the distance with Brown. Hmm ...

Fetty Wap I Treated a Kid Like Dirt For His Birthday!!!

8/21/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_Ftty_wapp_bike_instagram_MAINFetty Wap just made it impossible for the parents of a 19-year-old not to disappoint their kid ... because Fetty shelled out $8k for an amazing birthday present.

The "Trap Queen" rapper ran into Taekwon "Pug" Ford a few months back when he came to Baltimore to ride dirt bikes with Pug's crew. 

Apparently, Fetty knew Pug has an obsession with bikes -- he starred in "12 O'Clock Boys," a documentary about dirt bike riders in Baltimore.

So imagine Pug's surprise when Fetty presented the 19-year-old with a 2016 Yamaha YZ125. 

Fetty is no stranger to bikes ... and bike mishaps. He shattered his leg in a motorcycle accident last year. He's transitioned from 2 wheels to 4 -- smart.

EJ claims in addition to the physical pain, he's suffered "loss of love, affection, companionship, comfort, society and sexual relations."

Noah's mom, Tish, is also being sued because she allegedly let her daughter drive the jeep.

8/19/2016 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_floyd_mayweather_example_KODE57_launchFloyd Mayweather is about to add another insanely expensive whip to his collection -- 'cause the boxer just ordered a $2.5 MILLION supercar ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

It's called the KODE57 enji ... and high-end car enthusiasts have been geeked up about its debut for a long time. 

We're told the very first one was put out on display to the public moments ago at an exclusive car show in Pebble Beach ... and Floyd has already placed his order. 

We spoke with Floyd's car guy, Obi Okeke from and, who confirmed the order. 

"This is a car Floyd has been highly interested in and psyched about getting."

"I have been working on this project for 6 years and Floyd has been my main target in getting this car ... so he is pretty excited in finally seeing it and getting it."

Obi says only FIVE of the cars will be made -- "I am the only representative in North and South America to sell this car."


Meek Mill Gets Free Watch!! For Buying $380k Bentley

8/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meek Mill knows a good BOGO when he sees one ... because he scored a sweet bonus just for dropping a few hundred thousand for a new luxurious and rare SUV.

Sources close to Meek tell us the rapper paid $380,000 to get a Bentley Bentayga as soon as it rolled out of the factory. They've only made 75 of 'em and we're told Meek got the only one in Bev Hills. Why? It does 175 mph, and Bentley says it's the fastest SUV in the world.

The base model goes for $300k, but of course Meek had to have the Mulliner Edition. That's rich people talk for fully loaded. Check out the video ... it's pretty baller, and even has refrigerated consoles.

We're told Bentley threw in a "free" Breitling Bentley edition watch and some limited edition Bentley luggage. What a bargain!

Finally, something new for Meek ... without Nicki's name on it.



Gilbert Arenas Off-Roading In Maybach ... Blows a Tire

8/17/2016 3:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It cost more than $350,000 when he bought it roughly 10 years ago ... but now, Gilbert Arenas has relegated his fancy Maybach to off-road duty ... and it SUCKS on the trails.

Mr. No Chill documented his luxury breakdown on Snapchat ... telling the harrowing tale of a Maybach that lost a paw on his ranch ... and the trusty hands that helped him get on the road again.

WARNING -- Gilbert definitely goes racist ... saying the guys who came to his rescue are "illegal Mexicans" who he's been hiding ... ever since Donald Trump threatened to "send 'em back."

One thing we know about Gilbert at this point ... he doesn't care if you're offended. 

Kylie Jenner My Soft Ride Can Be Yours

8/12/2016 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812_kylie_jenner_g_wagon_mercedes_for_sale_launchKylie Jenner must have gotten tipped off she was getting a new car for her 19th birthday from Tyga, because she was already making room in the garage.

TMZ has learned ... Kylie sold her 2015 Mercedes velvet-wrapped G Wagon a couple weeks ago to Newport Coast Auto, who's now selling the whip for $145k.

The Benz is kinda a steal .... it's listed in line with Blue Book, but this one is celeb-owned with only 4.5k miles and a $5k custom velvet wrap job by West Coast Customs. 

As you know, Tyga just paid off that landlord, so looks like the Maybach he got her won't be repoed.

As we previously reported, Austin splurged on the Ferrari F12Berlinetta right around the time he inked his brand new $35 MILLION contract with the Clippers last month. 

So, when we saw Doc at Craig's in L.A. Monday night -- we asked if he was worried about his son/star player behind the wheel of a car with a top speed of over 200 MPH!!

Kris Jenner Prius Driver ... She Made Me Homeless

8/9/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808-kris-jenner-accident-tmzKris Jenner knocked a man right out of his home and onto the street ... but it's not her fault.

Turns out the Prius owner with whom she collided last week was living in his car, and now he's car-less and homeless.  

Jack Way tells us he's an actor/model in the entertainment industry, but work has been hard to come by, and he's been living in his car the last few months to make ends meet.

The Prius was totaled after Jack cut in front of Kris' Rolls at a Calabasas intersection. Here's the problem ... it appears the accident was his fault and he doesn't have collision insurance, and he doesn't have the money to get a new whip.

So, Jack's calling on friends for a place to sleep every night while he regroups.  He even set up a GoFundMe.

He's also lawyering up ... he's been in touch with Larry H. Parker, who gets some people $2.1 million ...
