Ryan Phillippe 'Freak Accident' Mystery Solved A UTV Crushed My Leg!!!

9/6/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Phillippe's "freak" leg injury that landed him in a hospital bed was from a UTV running it over ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the "Shooter" star tell us he was off-roading back in July when the utility task vehicle rolled over, so Ryan and a stranger tried to flip it back on its wheels. Problem was -- the parking brake wasn't on, so when they turned it upright it started rolling downhill towards a crowd.

We're told Phillippe rushed to grab the UTV's steering wheel and steer it to safety, but it was moving too fast and yanked him underneath ... causing the full weight of it to run over his right leg and crush it.

As we reported ... Ryan gave a thumbs-up update of his injury shortly after it happened, explaining it was a freak accident and not work-related.

Exclusive Details

Nipsey Hussle spent the night in jail simply because he left his ride in a disabled parking spot -- well, that and his outstanding warrants ... TMZ has learned.

LAPD busted the rapper around 9 PM Monday when officers spotted his car illegally parked -- Nipsey doesn't have a disabled placard -- and when they ran the plates, discovered he had warrants for previous traffic violations.

Nipsey clearly ain't sweating the arrest. He was back in the studio at 5 AM Tuesday after bailing out on "some bulls**t" ... as he put it.

Park at your own risk, Nipsey. Or try Lyft.

'Straight Outta Compton' Star 'Eazy-E' Actor Melts Down on Delta ... Where's My First Class Seat!?!

8/27/2017 4:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:20 AM PT -- A Delta official tells TMZ, the airline did NOT overbook. Mitchell was late to the airport and missed his flight, on which he had a first class ticket. Mitchell was flying standby on a later flight -- the flight in question -- and the only seat available was "comfort+." In other words, it was his fault.

The guy who played Eazy-E in "Straight Outta Compton" had a complete meltdown Sunday on a Delta flight ... because the airline double booked his seat.

TMZ obtained video of Jason Mitchell going insane after he realized someone was already sitting in his first class seat when he boarded the plane.

It's pretty wild -- you see Mitchell cussing out flight attendants and the pilot. He even calls him a "pussy" and then unleashes a bunch of "f*** yous" to everyone in earshot. 

Eyewitnesses say Mitchell eventually got off the plane, but not before cops had to get involved. Law enforcement sources tell us ... Mitchell was cuffed and detained when he finally left the aircraft, but Delta refused to press charges and he was released.

We've reached out to Mitchell's reps ... so far no word back.

Blac Chyna Sure, She Gave Rob Lambo and Ferrari They Were Leased!!!

8/21/2017 12:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna was so incensed Rob Kardashian kept the Range Rover she gave him, some eyewitnesses say she tried to steal it ... but we've learned none of the whips in question were owned by either of them.

We broke the story ... Chyna and Rob met at a Century City office building to try and hash out their custody dispute, Rob called the valet to get the Rover but stayed back until Chyna left.

Two witnesses tell us, Chyna went on a rant and tried getting in the Range Rover to drive it away. Her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, told TMZ, her client was pissed because Rob had given her a Lambo and a Ferrari and she gave them back to him, yet she gave him the Range Rover and he kept it. Bloom also says Chyna had some choice words when she saw the Rover but never tried getting in.

We've just learned ... all three vehicles were LEASED! So, when Chyna gave Rob back the Lambo and Ferrari, she washed her hands of any lease payments. We're also told the Range Rover was leased and Rob is making the payments.

Wow ... if they're fighting over this, good luck settling the custody case.

Blac Chyna Tries Jackin' Rob's Range Rover During Custody Negotiations

8/20/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna tried resolving their custody war Friday in a lawyer's office building, but there were clearly hard feelings at the end of the day because Chyna tried hightailing it out in Rob's whip ... so claim 2 eyewitnesses.

Here's what happened. Chyna and her team of 5 lawyers, including Lisa Bloom, showed up at the Century City law offices of Laura Wasser, who reps Rob. They spent hours inside but, according to Bloom, nothing has been resolved.

We're told Rob had someone call ahead to have his car pulled up to the valet stand, but he wanted to wait until Chyna left. According to witnesses, a visibly agitated Chyna came along, saw the Range Rover, got inside and prepared to hightail it away from the building.

We're told one of her lawyers told her, "That's not a good idea," and with the help of a valet, they got Chyna out of Rob's whip.

Bloom tells TMZ Chyna did not try to drive away in the Range Rover and did not get inside. Bloom did say, however, that Chyna was "agitated" when she saw the Ranger Rover because she had given it to Rob as a gift. Rob gave Chyna a Ferrari and a Lambo, both of which she returned to him when they broke up, but Rob kept the Rover.

Bloom said Chyna had some "choice words" when she saw the Range Rover, but that was it.

Bloom also said the custody hearing is full steam ahead for next month and she plans to raise allegations that Rob committed domestic violence.

Tupac Hummer Back on Auction Block After High Bidder Flakes

8/12/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tupac Shakur's 1996 Hummer -- the ride he bought a month before he was killed -- is headed back to the auction block ... because the previous winning bidder bailed on paying.

The rapper's fully loaded Hummer sold for a whopping $337,000 in May 2016 -- 3 times more than what was expected -- and it turns out it may have been too good to be true. After several attempts to collect, the anonymous Ohio bidder defaulted.

So, RR Auctions is listing Tupac's vehicle again with an estimate of $100k -- closer to what it was expected to fetch in the first place. The auction ends August 17.

2 Chainz Tricked Out Wheelchair Saves Concert Tour!!!

EXCLUSIVE

We see 2 Chainz rollin' ... and we ain't hatin'!!!

The rapper broke his leg just over a week ago and needed surgery to fix it. The doc told him he might have to cancel his entire "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music" tour  ... but Chainz wasn't having it.

So the rapper's producer hit up Sean Mahaney of Seanco Custom Wheelchairs ... and Sean tells TMZ his team got a tricked out 2-wheeler in less than a week ...  in time for the tour's show in Tuscon.

No one's talkin' price, but we're told the chair set Chainz back around $10k. The cushion alone runs a G.

The pink wheelchair is propelled by 26-inch wheels with 144 gold spokes, chain-link detail that harnesses the wheels ... plus the rapper's "TRAP" logo. Sean's no stranger to tricking out wheelchairs. He hooked up Slim Jimmy for last year's BET Awards, which is how 2 Chainz's crew heard about Sean.

 2 Chainz will perform the majority of his tour in the chair.

Almost wish ya had a bum leg, huh?

O.J. Simpson's Ex-Agent Takes Bronco to 'Pawn Stars' ... Let's Make a Deal!

8/9/2017 11:51 AM PDT
Breaking News

The man who kept O.J. Simpson's getaway Bronco hidden for roughly 22 years wants more than $500,000 for the infamous ride ... and he's hoping to get it from the guys on "Pawn Stars."

Simpson's former agent, Mike Gilbert, got in touch with Rick Harrison in the hopes of unloading the car he got from Al Cowlings following the 1994 slow speed chase on the 405 freeway. 

During the episode, which airs Monday on History, Gilbert told the guys he's had very serious offers in the past -- but wants more than half a mil or no deal. 

The challenge for Rick -- we've never seen him spend that kind of money on the show before. The most expensive items ever sold at the Pawn Shop were gold bars valued at $128,000.

8/7/2017 6:36 AM PDT

Justin Bieber can joke about it now ... driving over a photog is so a thing of the past.

The Biebs was leaving The Peppermint Club in WeHo -- it took a while for his Mercedes G Wagon to come around to valet, and as the paps gathered ... the tension built.

So you gotta see what happened once Justin's whip arrived, and he got behind the wheel -- the first time he's been in this situation since the accident 2 weeks ago. Let's just say, it looks like both Justin and the photogs have learned their lesson.

Outta the way!

No word yet if the repo man got his hands on the whip.
