Pamela Anderson New Ride-Hail PSA ... Tied to #MeToo

1/8/2018 12:20 AM PST

1:18 PM PT -- A rep for Uber tells TMZ ... "The NLA's advertisements continue to be misleading. Uber has a responsibility to contribute to safety, help fight tough issues and mitigate any incidents. That's why we focus on safety before, during, and after every ride through technology and stand with top organizations in the fight against harassment and assault of women."Pamela Anderson is back to taking aim at ride-hail apps and the drivers she believes aren't properly vetted ... now tying them to the #MeToo movement.

Pam stars in a new ad/PSA in which she's surrounded by headlines about sexual misconduct in Hollywood and the #MeToo movement, when a rideshare app driver pulls up.

The tension rises as the driver ominously stares at Pam through the rear view mirror and locks the doors -- all while #MeToo flashes on her phone. 

As we reported ... Pam released a similar PSA last year, but this one definitely ups the ante.

Pam also released a statement to TMZ about her new ad, saying in part ... "Ride-hail apps are a haven for predators. It’s scary how many #metoo tweets are linked to ride-hailing."

Lyft tell us Pam's campaign misleads consumers about the benefits and safety features of Lyft. They add ... drivers must pass multiple background checks before being able to drive, and each ride is covered with a $1 million liability insurance policy.

Paris Hilton Leaves Fiance at the Curb!!! But, THAT Ring Is Safe

1/5/2018 8:00 AM PST

Paris Hilton's new fiance has been relegated to precious cargo No. 2 -- he was left eating dust after Paris and her $2 million engagement ring jumped into a waiting SUV.

This video is hilarious ... Chris Zylka was virtually kicked to the curb after the happy couple arrived at LAX Thursday night. Paris and her new 20 carat ring were already secured in the whip, and while Chris was still loading up ... the ride bolted.

NBD ... Chris plays it off pretty smoothly. Welcome to the rest of your life, bro.

Colin Farrell Bummer Ending To Hot Lunch Date

1/4/2018 7:49 AM PST

Colin Farrell's lunch date went from good to bad ... to downright ugly in just a matter of minutes.

Colin and his rumored GF, Kelly McNamara, grubbed in L.A. Wednesday. That's the good for Colin -- she's a catch -- but the look on Colin's face as they walked to his car says it all. They were greeted by a parking ticket ... and even ran into the cop who dropped it on them.

Looks like the officer pointed out the parking sign. For next time.

There goes the $63 that woulda fixed the tear on that shirt.

Ty Dolla $ign Shut Up, People ... I Own the Road

12/30/2017 7:20 AM PST

Ty Dolla $ign thought he was all that Friday night outside a popular West Hollywood club, blocking traffic and ignoring the protestations of angry motorists ... that is, until the cops entered the picture.

Ty rolled up at the Poppy at a snail's pace in his super sweet '64 Chevy Impala, after doing a number with the hydraulics. He turned a deaf ear to the angry motorists surrounding him who were being blocked.

He actually pulled the stunt both when he arrived at Poppy and when he left.

As he was leaving, cops came and in the loudest and sternest way possible ordered him to knock off the antics.

2 Chainz I Got Defrauded by a Fake Lawyer ... Over a Rolls

12/27/2017 3:24 PM PST

12/28 10:30 AM PT -- Waddell tells TMZ ... the texts 2 Chainz received did not come from him or anyone he knows, and he believes they were fabricated to discredit Highline's case or delay paying the owed funds. He says the texts in question were never authenticated and could have come from anyone, but he's not going to let them distract from the case against the rapper.2 Chainz believes the guy suing him for an alleged unpaid Rolls-Royce tab tried to trick him into settling the case ... by fraudulently posing as 2 different lawyers.

The rapper claims Joshua Waddell of Highline Holdings Group sent him texts in early December from an unknown number pretending to be Chainz' lawyer, urging him to pay the amount the auto broker sued for back in October.

2 Chainz says he knew it was Waddell, though, because he recognized the number from previous communications.

A few days later, Chainz claims Waddell was at it again -- this time pretending to be HHG's lawyer -- and falsely claimed a default judgment had been granted to HHG and a lien had been issued on the rapper's whip.

According to the docs ... 2 Chainz confirmed that neither his lawyer or Waddell's lawyer sent the texts, and believes Waddell fraudulently sent the texts as a trap.

We broke the story ... HHG claims the rapper has an outstanding balance on his Phantom Drophead of $18,317 plus interest.

2 Chainz now wants the judge to teach Waddell a lesson ... and toss the case.

We reached out to Highline ... no word back so far.

Lonzo Ball Cops $350K Xmas Ride ... For LaVar & Mom

12/26/2017 6:29 AM PST

Lonzo Ball just won Christmas ... going full Big Baller style, copping a $350k Rolls-Royce for his dad, LaVar, and his mom, Tina ... and their first ride was caught on video.

Ball unveiled the new ride on his social media with the hashtag "It's the least I could do" ... though something tells us he knows he's doing the most.

Of course, the Balls aren't strangers to fancy cars -- all the boys push Lamborghinis -- but we're guessing Lonzo felt it was time his dad got in on the act as well.

We had our office car experts check the ride out, and it looks to be a Rolls-Royce Dawn, which retails around $350K ... good use of Lonzo's $6 million salary from the Lakers this year.

Hope your parents enjoyed the sweaters you got them.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Ride-or-Die Couple

12/20/2017 7:51 AM PST

Prince Harry flies a helicopter, so it should be no surprise he was behind the wheel driving Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace, but still ... where's the butler?

Megs rode shotgun Wednesday as they headed off to Queen Elizabeth's pre-Christmas luncheon. Not to be outdone, big bro Prince William -- who also flies a mean bird -- insisted on playing chauffeur for Kate Middleton.

We get it, the Princes are totally down-to-earth kinda guys ... but can't QE2 hook 'em up with an Uber? Especially for what looks like a formal family affair.

Just sayin' ...

NFL's Su'a Cravens NOT Racially Profiled ... Cops Say

12/19/2017 5:57 AM PST

Su'a Cravens' race had NOTHING to do with why he was pulled over in Virginia last month -- it all had to do with the speed of his car ... this according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. 

As we previously reported, the Washington Redskins safety claims he was racially profiled and roughed up by cops during a Nov. 29 incident. He even made a video from the scene and shared it on social media.

But the LCSO tells TMZ Sports straight-up ... "This traffic stop was not a case of racial profiling."

Officials tells us Cravens was pulled over as part of a crackdown on speeders in school zones. 

"A deputy’s LIDAR received a reading on a vehicle that was traveling over the posted speed limit of 25 mph in a school zone. The deputy initiated a traffic stop and the driver pulled over into a shopping center."

Cops tell us Cravens was ticketed for speeding and illegal tint and is due back in court next month.

Of course, Cravens sees it differently -- claiming he was pulled over for being a black man with tattoos in a nice car. He also claims cops falsely claimed he smelled like weed and searched his car -- but found nothing.

Abby Wambach: 'Idiots' Stole My Car ... Wrote Hate Speech

Breaking News

Soccer legend Abby Wambach says she's the victim of a hate crime -- claiming some "idiots" stole her car for a joy ride ... and then returned it with hate speech scribbled all over the inside. 

"They stole valuables including a purse and wallet (gift to my wife)," the former Team USA star said in a post on Instagram ... "and wrote hate speech in Sharpie all over the inside of our car."

Wambach says the incident occurred Wednesday morning (between the hours of 1:34 AM and 4:30 AM)  at the Florida home where she lives with her wife, Glennon Doyle.

"They were Caucasian (3 of them). One had a hoodie with cargo shorts. The driver had an Ohio State hat on (O on front of hat) of red or black hat. Same guy had grey top, Nike shorts and Nike shoes. Also, they left finger prints on the car door when they left it back with us."

Wambach says surveillance cameras captured the license plate of a car they believe belongs to the scumbags.

"This neighborhood has each other’s backs. Neighbors camera got you, you idiots!! If you turn yourself in now, and return the stolen property, and pay for the car damages we won’t press charges. If you don’t, you are going to go to jail. You have 24 hours. If you have any info get in touch. Thanks everyone."

TMZ Sports spoke with local law enforcement and we're told they are "aware and investigating."

Randy Travis DWI Naked Arrest Vid Released

12/4/2017 3:04 PM PST

Randy Travis' DWI arrest video has finally been released by Texas officials, and it's apparent the singer is out of it.

The video is 3 hours long ... we've posted a portion where Randy is clearly agitated and praying to God.

The 2012 footage of Randy's arrest was released Monday after a federal judge denied the country singer's request to keep it private.

As we reported ... Travis filed a lawsuit in September to keep his arrest vid under wraps, claiming it would be a violation of his privacy rights because he was exhausted, intoxicated and medicated.

Travis crashed his Trans Am and was found naked at the crash scene after walking to a convenience store ... also in the nude.

Travis' rep tells TMZ, "Randy's behavior was extremely altered the evening of his arrest due to the state of his mental health, and substances in his body, causing him to do and say things that were entirely out of character," adding he suffered a severe concussion as a result of the crash.

The rep goes on ... "Randy is deeply apologetic for his actions that evening. A man of integrity with a good heart, Randy does not and will never condone these type of actions that distort the true beliefs of Randy Travis and his entire family."

12/5/17 -- Travis' lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ:

"Randy Travis is a legend who will always be known for his influential singing voice and his contribution to country music; not for a single automobile accident and comments he made after he suffered a horrific car accident striking his skull against the windshield of his car and then the pavement. Randy has lived his life as an ambassador of goodwill, tolerance and acceptance. Cultural diversity is evident in his songs and actions. Randy took responsibility and apologized for his statements 5 years ago and his apology was accepted by the troopers. We now pray for Randy's full recovery.

Boosie Badazz just earned himself Father of the Year honors ... from his daughter, anyway.

The rapper gave Ivi a sick Porsche Panamera on Sunday for her 16th birthday. He posted this video the night he surprised her ... and ya can't blame her for losing it. The Panamera's an expensive gift -- around $100k -- especially one that's loaded like Ivi's whip.

Sweet gift for sure, but we think Boosie's gonna regret it. He's got 8 kids ... so, that's a high-priced bar he just set.

2 Live Crew's Uncle Luke Range Rover Repo'd and Returned

12/4/2017 12:50 AM PST

Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell lost his ride to the repo man last week, but apparently forked over the cash to get it back.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the former 2 Live Crew frontman's black Range Rover was repossessed at his home in Miramar, FL on November 22 because he'd missed some payments.

You can see Luke's Rover being loaded onto the tow truck.

It's funny, though ... Uncle Luke's spokesperson sent us a video of him sitting in the Range Rover Thursday -- 8 days after the repo.

So it looks like Luther squared up.

Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel I'm Not The A-Hole Driver You Think I Am!!!

12/2/2017 12:50 AM PST

The CEO of a company that begins with "Snap" is a wanted man by residents in a San Fernando Valley neighborhood because he's terrorizing them with his driving ... and they've wrongly targeted poor Evan Spiegel.

The owner of this Lambo is being accused of breaking just about every traffic law known to man ... from speeding to erratic lane changes. Folks in the Chatsworth area have assumed the offender is Evan, because he has the most famous company that begins with "Snap".

The Chatsworth Neighborhood Watch has been skewering Evan on Facebook, saying things like: 

    "That's Evan Spiegel, Snapchat CEO. The police shouldn't have a hard time finding him"

   "This asshole was flying down vanowen 2 days ago."

   "I don’t care who this jackass is or how much money he has... Dont drive like an ass...."

   "What a jerk! Wondering if you can file an online report?"

   "I’ve also seen this jerk once before! He almost hit us when we were pulling out from the shopping        plaza at De Soto & Lassen. This was like a month ago but I recognize the f***er instantly!!"

Turns out Evan's getting a bad rap, because we found out the car actually belongs to Snap Liquids CEO Nathan Daneshrad ... whose company sells vape liquid flavors.

We reached out to Nathan ... he had no comment.

As for Evan ... he has an alibi, because he lives in Brentwood and no one in their right mind would hang out miles away from Miranda Kerr
