Arnold Schwarzenegger Shades Elon Musk Shoot for Model 3s, Then Mars!!!

3/12/2018 7:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Arnold Schwarzenegger is wondering what the rest of the world is wondering -- what's taking Elon Musk so long to get that Model 3 going?!

We got Arnold at SXSW in Austin (yup, we're everywhere) and our guy wanted to know if Arnold would ever volunteer for Elon's Mars trip. Arnold quickly fired back and went after Elon's Model 3. For the uninitiated ... the electric sedan -- with a base price of just $35k -- has been Elon's master plan to bring an affordable car to the electric vehicle market. But Tesla's struggled to produce the sought-after car with yet another production halt.

What's more ... Elon's missed nearly every goal and his target of producing 5,000 Model 3s per week has been pushed back to June. But it sounds like Arnold's ready to help. We think.

Farrah Abraham Joyriders, Take the Wheel Why Don't Ya ... Here's the Keys, On Me!

3/7/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham was apparently asleep at the wheel this weekend -- 'cause her car got jacked after she left the keys inside.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone made off with a Hyundai Saturday that Farrah had rented. We're told she accidentally left her car keys in the vehicle, which she'd parked in a garage at a private residence in Bev Hills. Sure enough, it was boosted.

Unclear if the keys were in the ignition ... but we imagine it was a fairly easy getaway, regardless.

Luckily, this story's got a happy ending. Sources tell us cops spotted the car Monday night and ran the plates only to discover it was Farrah's stolen Hyundai. They pulled it over and arrested 3 men who were cruising in it. All three were booked for grand theft auto.

Farrah tells us two men were caught on camera stealing her rental while her real car was in the shop. She says some stuff was taken, but she's just happy she and her daughter are safe.

Pamela Anderson Tells Ride-hail App Users Don't Assume Risk!!!

3/6/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Pam Anderson says ride-hail apps shirk their responsibility and shift blame to their users ... and that's why she implores you to read the fine print.

Pamela is back with a new PSA -- obtained in advance by TMZ --  and takes ride-hail apps to task for making its users assume all the risk with the long and dreaded terms and conditions ... which, btw, is the title for her third PSA.

She first went after ride-hail apps, like Uber or Lyft, back in November for not properly vetting its drivers. She went after them again in January and tied them to the #MeToo movement.

In the new PSA, Pamela's driver reads out loud the terms and conditions for the ride-hail app, Via. Might not have heard of it. It's only available in 3 cities. But point made ... ride-hail apps cram responsibility with a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo. And you should be aware.

Carl's Jr. Model Emily Sears Injured in Car Accident Motorcycle Crashes into Her Lyft

3/4/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carl's Jr. model Emily Sears was injured when a motorcycle crashed into her Lyft this week, and cops say the biker was at fault.

Law enforcement sources tell us Sears was on her way home Monday night in WeHo when a motorcycle made a left and collided with the car ... sending the rider flying.

Emily's backseat airbag deployed and her face was bruised from the impact. We're told she's also dealing with neck, ear and shoulder pain.

Meanwhile, the motorcyclist took the worst of it -- we're told he was taken to a hospital with a possible broken leg. Cops quickly determined the rider caused the crash.

Sources close to Sears say she's not planning on taking any legal action against the man, at least for now.

Justin Bieber Birthday Swag All About the Shag

3/2/2018 7:02 AM PST

Justin Bieber's tipping his hat to Austin Powers to celebrate his 24th birthday ... 'cause he's shaggin', baby!!!

We got Justin cruising out of Mastro's Steakhouse Thursday night after what we've gotta believe was a pretty balling bday meal ... based on what he did when he got out.

Check out the video -- we expect the Biebs to ride in style, but this time his chauffeured SUV had something extra swaggy ... or should we say shaggy? Justin kicked back, and was as chill as we've seen him in a long time. Can't blame him.

All this scene's missing is Selena. (That's what he said)

Justin Bieber Bday Hug with Mom ... Now Let's Go-Kart!!!

3/1/2018 5:58 PM PST

Justin Bieber's hugging it out with his mom ... who gave birth to him 24 years ago today.

The Biebs just showed up at MB2 Raceway in the Valley with some of his church pals -- including pastor Carl Lentz -- and was welcomed by a warm hug from his mama, Pattie Mallette.

JB's plan to celebrate his birthday is apparently zipping around on go-karts on an indoor track ... which beats bottoming out a Lambo.

No sign of Selena yet, but based on how close the 2 have been lately ... it'll be no surprise if she shows up soon to join in on the fun.

As we reported ... Justin and Pattie reconciled recently and even went on vacay together, and it looks like things are still going well.

Happy birthday, kid!

3/1/2018 3:27 PM PST
Breaking News

Fetty Wap got 15 charges knocked down to 2 and, as a result, he'll avoid doing any jail time for his DWI arrest.

Fetty was in a Brooklyn courthouse Thursday to plead guilty to driving while intoxicated and reckless endangerment. TMZ broke the story ... the rapper was busted in November while, according to cops, he raced another car on a highway at speeds topping 100 MPH. His BAC was .09 ... just over the legal limit.

He has to pay a $500 fine and attend 14 hours of impaired driving education.

As part of his plea deal, prosecutors dropped a slew of additional charges ... including drag racing, driving without a valid license, speeding and following too close.

Justin Bieber Lambo Bottoms Out at Bumpy Church Service

3/1/2018 6:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber got bumpy service during a church service.

The Biebs was worshiping Wednesday in L.A. at the Saban Theatre ... while he was inside, a staffer struggled as he backed Justin's Lamborghini up into a driveway. The major downside to a Lambo -- a super low bumper.

Selena Gomez was also there but apparently arrived separately. Paps asked if it's too early to talk marriage. After all, the kids can't seem to get enough of each other ... with PDA galore.

Justin left solo ... Lambo intact and parked outside as paps swarmed him. Way to avoid this.

Chevy Chase I Got Swift Kick to the Shoulder In Road Rage Incident!!!

2/22/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chevy Chase tracked down a truck he says cut him off, but when he tried to confront the driver he ended up getting booted to the ground ... according to a police report.

Chevy claims he was traveling over NY's Tappan Zee Bridge on February 9 when a black pickup cut him off. He told cops he thought the truck hit his car, so he flashed his high beams and followed it until the driver pulled over.

According to police docs ... Chevy realized there was no damage to either vehicle, but approached the driver to "speak to him about his reckless driving." He claims there were 3 other people in the truck, and one of 'em flipped him off. Apparently not "Fletch" or "Caddyshack" fans.

Chevy says he fired back, "If I were a lot younger I'd bust your nose" ... then one of 'em got out and kicked him in the shoulder so hard he went to the ground.

According to docs, the pickup driver claims Chevy tried to throw a punch first, and the alleged kicker was just blocking Chevy's fist ... with his foot.

Cops cited ol' quick foot for 2nd degree harassment with physical contact.

There was a 3rd party witness who, according to cops, pulled over because he didn't want to see an old man "get his ass stomped."

'Dumb and Dumber' Mini Bike Sells for $50k To Lucky Single Guy

2/21/2018 12:10 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Just when you thought the sale of the "Dumb and Dumber" mini bike couldn't possibly be any dumber, it was.

The hog featured in the classic 1994 comedy, and used to get Lloyd and Harry to Aspen ... hauled in $50,000 for the Houston man who sold it on eBay to fortify his kid's college fund. Considering the opening bid was $8,500 ... nice work, Dad.

The new owner is Todd Lyons from New York, who tells us one of his friends told him he wanted to bid on it, but his wife lowered the boom. Todd had no one dissuading him, so he went for it. Three cheers for bachelorhood!

As we reported ... the mini bike was one of 2 used in the film, specifically in all the close-up riding scenes with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

Todd tells us he was 13 when he first saw the flick with his buddy, so he's thrilled to own a piece of it ... which he will proudly display on his wall.

Prince William Gets Your Motor Running!!! (Maybe Just a Little?)

2/20/2018 7:22 AM PST

Prince William ain't exactly the "Easy Rider" type, but he's trying his damnedest to look the part.

The Duke of Cambridge suited up Tuesday, hopped on a Triumph motorbike, popped the clutch and zoomed off -- but not too far. This was mostly a photo op, after all.

Wills visited Triumph Motorcycles and MIRA Technology Park in England -- and took a tour to celebrate the British company's world-class facilities.

Really though ... it was an awesome excuse for the father of 2 to live in the fast lane again. William used to own a Ducati back in his youth, and seemed to recapture some of that while test riding a Triumph Tiger 1200 around the factory's private track.

He got an up-close look at the assembly line and the slick machines they're producing -- but, let's be honest, he's got baby number 3 on the way. Probably best if William sticks to this kind of racing.

John Cena Slams Ford In $500k Supercar War ... You Suck at Paperwork!

2/13/2018 12:17 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

John Cena is giving Ford a little attitude adjustment of his own -- telling the car company to take their lawsuit over his old $500,000 supercar and shove it.

We broke the story ... Ford claims it sold Cena a super rare "limited edition" Ford GT supercar -- 647 horsepower, 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine with an MSRP of $450,000.

Ford claims they only selected a few people for the privilege of buying the car -- and Cena was one of the lucky ones (Justin Verlander and Joey Logano also own the whip).

The caveat, according to Ford, owners CANNOT resell the car during the initial 24 months of ownership. Ford claims Cena broke the rules and flipped his ride for a profit. They're suing Cena for every penny he got from the sale. 

But in new court docs filed in district court in Michigan, John says he did nothing wrong -- because the final contract he signed said nothing about a 24-month no-resale clause.

Cena says Ford screwed up by not putting the sale restriction in the final binding contract -- and he shouldn't be punished because they suck at paperwork.

Now, he's asking the judge to throw out the case against him.

Stay tuned ... 

Elon Musk's Falcon Heavy Rocket Freaks Out Over Launch 'Holy Flying F**k'

2/11/2018 11:42 AM PST

Elon Musk was just as shocked as anybody over the successful launch of his Falcon Heavy rocket ... perhaps even more so, actually, based on his colorful language. 

National Geographic captured the SpaceX CEO's reaction Tuesday as his company sent the most powerful U.S. rocket in nearly half a century into space from the Kennedy Space Center. His immediate response ... "Holy flying f***, that thing took off." 

Musk and staff essentially freaked out over the launch, and appropriately so. SpaceX sent a rocket into orbit with a Tesla Roadster attached as part of its payload ... a major step forward for colonizing Mars.

Besides ... the launch and touchdown of their booster rockets was quite a sight to behold. So we'll pardon his French on this one ... it was pretty f****** cool.
