EXCLUSIVE

Garry Shandling Car AccidentGarry Shandling could be in serious trouble for allegedly failing to do the simplest thing ... leaving a note behind after backing into a parked car.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Shandling was at the Will Rogers State Park in the Pacific Palisades a few weeks back when he backed his Porsche into a parked Prius. 

Our sources say a witness told police Shandling got out of his car, took a photo of the Prius, and then took off without leaving his info for the other driver.

The Prius driver filed a report with police and they are now investigating.

Sources close to Garry tell TMZ he took the photo and sent it to his insurance company so they could handle. Law enforcement sources tell us if that is indeed the case, he could be off the hook.

Bruce Jenner

Faces Wrongful Death Suit

By Victim's Stepchildren

EXCLUSIVE

0401_bruce_jenner_kim_howe

The stepchildren of the woman who was killed in the Bruce Jenner car crash are gearing up for a wrongful death lawsuit, TMZ has learned, and what's especially interesting is that we're told they had virtually no relationship with their stepmom.

Kim Howe was driving her Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway on February 7th when Bruce slammed into her, sending her car careening into the lane of oncoming traffic where a Hummer demolished her car.

Howe has no direct relatives. Her husband died in 2003, and it appears her parents are deceased as well as other immediate blood relatives.

Kim does have 2 grown stepkids, neither of whom live in California. We spoke with people who were extremely close to Kim who tell us she had "virtually no relationship" with either stepchild.

Nonetheless, were told both stepchildren have lawyered up, because they're the only remaining people who have a legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In California, stepchildren have legal standing to sue, even if they were estranged from the stepparent.

Sources tell us, the lawyer for one of the stepchildren has already asked his client to find as many pictures and other evidence showing some relationship between himself and Kim ... presumably to help establish damages in the lawsuit.

One thing we know ... the stepchildren will not inherit Kim's property. We're told she has a trust with millions in assets that are earmarked for charity. And there's a will with a modest amount -- $55k -- that also benefits various animal charities, including, PETA, Lange Foundation, PAWS (Performing Animal Welfare Society), Doris Day Animal League and The Elephant Sanctuary of Tennessee.

Lil Wayne

Plus Brand New Caddy ...

Ballin' 16th for 'Hip Hop' Prince

4/1/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hip-hop superstars Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and Rich Homie Quan were the icing on the cake for a 16- year-old kid's $150,000 birthday party -- and the guest of honor arrived by chopper!

The lucky kid was KJ Jr. -- son of "Hip Hop Since 1978" founder Kyambo Joshua -- and since Dad rolls with the likes of Jay Z and Kayne West on the reg ... it makes sense the Atlanta bash went down in a huge hangar.

As if shout-outs from Weezy, Lil Boosie, MonicaYo Gotti and a YG performance wasn't enough -- the kid got a 2015 Cadillac Escalade!

Right now it's a toss up for "Ballingest Party of the Year" -- KJ Jr.'s 16th or Snoop Dogg's 18th for his son -- but KJ flying in on a helicopter is a damn good tie-breaker.

Tiesto Crashed My Dock With a Yacht

And I Can't Stop Laughing

Exclusive Details

Tiesto Crashes Boat David Guetta Rockstar DJ Tiesto just showed us how to get a laugh out of a multi-millionaire -- simply total his South Beach dock by smashing into it with a yacht! 

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Tiesto and crew -- Martin Garrix, and LIV owner Dave Grutman -- went to scoop up David Guetta in Grutman's 55' VanDutch yacht. Y'know, typical Wednesday stuff.

But as they approached Guetta's dock, the engine stalled and they couldn't stop the boat from barreling into the dock. Don't worry ... we're told nobody was hurt, and even the boat survived without a scratch.

Guetta's response -- laugh hysterically, jump aboard the yacht, and head to a party.

We're told it's gonna cost about 30k to fix the dock, and Guetta won't make Tiesto pay for it. As for why they all laughed it off -- Tiesto, Guetta, and Garrix all command about $300k to $500k for a single gig.

Mackenzie McKee Car Accident "Teen Mom 3" and "16 and Pregnant" star Mackenzie McKee blames diabetes for an accident that landed her brand spankin' new car at the bottom of a ditch.

According to sources close to McKee ... the MTV star was driving on an Oklahoma highway with sky high blood sugar Saturday night, when she zoned out and suddenly swerved off the road ... totaling the 2013 Kia Sorento she bought the day before.

Good news is the car passed the crash test -- all the airbags deployed and Mackenzie wasn't hurt. Her 2 kids were not with her.

0323-SUB-mackenzie-mckee-car-crash-MAIN-TMZ-02Now the painful part ... sources say McKee's on the hook for the entire $26k she dropped on the car because she didn't have insurance (she got a ticket for that too). We're told she planned to call her insurance company Monday to get coverage.

Decision making is not necessarily her strong point.

David Crosby Hits Jogger

Rock legend David Crosby slammed into a jogger while driving through California wine country ... sending the guy to the hospital with multiple fractures and lacerations.  

According to the police report ... Crosby was doing 55 mph in his 2015 Tesla when he hit the man on a highway in Santa Ynez. Crosby told police he was blinded by the sun when the accident happened. 

The 46-year-old runner's injuries were not life-threatening, but were serious enough that he was airlifted to a hospital. Crosby was not injured.

The report shows alcohol and drugs were not a factor, and Crosby immediately stopped his vehicle.

Crosby's rep tells us the rocker is upset he accidentally hit the jogger, but he's relieved the injuries weren't life-threatening and he wishes the man a speedy recovery.

Police are still investigating the accident.

[Video]

3/23/2015 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good thing Gareth Bale is the most expensive soccer player in the world ... 'cause the Real Madrid star might need to repair a few nicks in his Bentley after a crazed fan went BERSERK on his ride Sunday.

Bale's squad was on the losing end of its "El Clásico" matchup with hated rival Barcelona this past weekend ... and after the team arrived back in Madrid, some idiot fans decided to take their frustrations out on Bale's whip as he left the club's training area. 

Check out the crazy, crazy video -- the moronic "fans" not only punched and kicked Bale's car ... they went after his teammate Jese Rodriguez as well ... smacking his expensive red sports car. 

At one point, Jese rolled his window down ... and it seemed he considered getting out of his car ... but ultimately drove off before the situation got worse. 

Hey Gareth, plenty of good teams in the MLS ... just sayin.

0319-kevin-hart-escalade-tmz-instagram-01Kevin Hart handed his ex-wife keys to a new Caddy, but she gave him something pretty awesome too -- peace between the mother of his 2 children and his new fiancée.

Torrei Hart tells TMZ, the 2015 Escalade Kev gave her for her 37th birthday came on the heels of her squashing all old beef between her and Eniko Parrish

It's no secret ... the Harts' bitter divorce included nasty Twitter rants and cheating accusations -- but Torrei says things are so cool now with the future Mrs. Hart ... the ladies even hang together at the kids' hoops games.

Torrei adds Kevin was so supportive when he knew she needed a new ride ... he even let her pick out ANY vehicle she wanted.

Bottom line ... that crap they say about grudges might be true.

Cruisin' L.A. in Batmobile

... With Jeff Dunham

               -- Batman (1995)

NASCAR superstar Joey Logano was channeling his inner-Bruce Wayne out in Los Angeles Tuesday -- cruising around the City of Angels in a Batmobile. 

And not just any Batmobile ... the good one from the Michael Keaton era. 

0317-joey-logano-car-sub-TWITTER-01

Turns out, Logano was hangin' with Vegas mega-comic Jeff Dunham (the ventriloquist) ... who owns the car and wanted to take Joey out for a spin.

But like any other whip, the Batmobile requires gas ... so they stopped at a Shell station and filled up ... 91 of course. 

So, where did they go next? Tune in next time. Same Bat time. Same Bat website.

Things are going EXTREMELY well for Pauly … our car sources say he helped Instagram's Most Interesting Man lighten his crazy load of exotic cars by nabbing the Lambo DB posted on Ebay, for only $450k, then blazed his way to Sin City. 

0317-dan-bilzerian-dj-pauly-d-SUB-INSTAGRAM-02Bilzerian was asking $500k for the 2013 Aventador Roadster ... and nobody bit, but Pauly took it for a spin Monday, Dan dropped his price, and they sealed the deal.

Pauly -- who's doing a residency at the Vegas Hard Rock -- tells TMZ ... the car's a monster and he's always wanted it ... he even bought his daughter one -- think PowerWheels.

Only thing it needs is a fresh coat of bronzer.
