Nobody f***s with the Hells Angels -- even in a court of law ... just ask Young Jeezy who's agreed to pay off the feared motorcycle club to settle their lawsuit against him, TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... the Angels sued the rapper for allegedly copying their Death Head logo and slapping a knockoff version all over Jeezy's 8732 clothing line.
Apparently Jeezy was rattled enough from the lawsuit to almost immediately yank the items in question off the shelves.
So now we've learned the case has settled ... our biker sources say Jeezy coughed up some cash. As for how much, we're told "at least enough for some beers for the boys."
Jeezy's rep says the rapper is happy with the settlement.
As for the Hells Angels, they simply told us, "We always get what we want." True that.
VIDEO PROOF ... Ferrari Accident Wasn't Her Fault
5/13/2014 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
V. Stiviano has made plenty of mistakes in her life ... but slamming her red Ferrari into the back of a Range Rover this week wasn't one of them -- and TMZ has the video to prove it.
We broke the story ... Stiviano was involved in a fender bender in Beverly Hills Monday afternoon ... and went OFF on the other driver, cussing her out and shouting things like, "You know who you're messing with, motherf*****?"
The other driver told us Stiviano was at fault -- failing to stop as she pulled her Ferrari into a parking lot and slamming into the back of the other driver's Range Rover -- but the video tells a much different story.
In the clip, you can clearly see the Range Rover is actually the one responsible -- REVERSING INTO Stiviano ... and tapping her front fender.
If only Donald Sterling got that much action.

She's in a Car Crash!
5/12/2014 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
V. Stiviano rolled into Beverly Hills Monday afternoon right before rolling the Ferrari Donald Sterling gave her into another car ... TMZ has learned.
Stiviano was driving her red whip behind a black Range Rover when we're told she failed to stop and caused a rear ender. The other driver tells TMZ ... she was wearing her visor at the time of the crash.
We're told V. went insane ... jumping out of the Ferrari and "screaming every obscenity in the book," including, "You know who you're messing with, mother f*****?"
Stiviano told the other driver she had to return the Ferrari ... though she was not specific. As you know by now, the car is one of several vehicles she got courtesy of Donald Sterling.
We're told Stiviano wouldn't ante up her insurance info and had "an assistant" deal with it.
Former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda said last week ... he hoped V. got hit by a car. Close, Tommy ... close.

Biebs -- who of course had a friend film the stunt -- posted the video on his Instagram page on Saturday with the caption, "Ridin down fairfax lol had a great time."

Threatens Her with Heavy Metal
5/10/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Aubrey O'Day had a rough Cinco de Mayo -- not only did her BMW get smacked up in a hit-and-run, but she got threatened by the alleged culprit.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... O'Day was a passenger in her own car on May 5 (fellow Danity Kaner Shannon Bex was driving) when a giant SUV hit her whip as it sat at a red light.
We're told the black Buick Enclave rode halfway up her hood before the driver gunned it and beat a hasty retreat. We're told the impact was bad enough to cause $10K in damages.
O'Day and Bex went to a hair salon the next day and spotted the phantom Enclave. They took a few pics of the car for evidence, when the driver came out and confronted them.
We're told the Enclave driver allegedly went inside the salon, brandishing a heavy metal object and then asked the women, "Do we have a problem here, 'cause we can take care of it now."
The girls filed a police report and cops are investigating.

5/8/2014 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Just days before throwing down at Dr. Dre's billionaire party -- Tyrese literally drove HOURS to Vegas with his pal The Game ... inside the world's first tricked-out $350,000 "Rolls Royce" van ... just to pick up a couple slices at the Bellagio.
Tyrese tells TMZ, he picked Game up Wednesday in L.A. and made the day trip in his brand new customized ride -- what he's calling the world's first ever "Rolls Royce Phantom Sprinter" van.
The whip's stacked too -- complete with several Apple TVs, a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Mac Mini, custom Rolls rims and grill, crazy neon "Transformers" lights, a phone charger at each seat, Internet, and even a heated floor.
Tyrese says as soon as they grubbed down at Bellagio they immediately hightailed it back to L.A. Because, why not.
Game tells us, the carpet in the van was so nice, he didn't even bother to wear shoes -- "I made it to Vegas and all the way back in a fresh pair of white socks."

Consoled By Man in Pajama Bottoms
5/9/2014 1:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Baywatch" actress Brooke Burns MANGLED her BMW Thursday near Universal Studios ... thankfully, there was a guy in his PJs to give her a shoulder to cry on.
Witnesses tell TMZ ... Brooke was driving in North Hollywood when she slammed into the passenger side of a Toyota Matrix.
Police and fire units rushed to the scene ... but no one was taken to the hospital. Both cars were undriveable and a tow truck had to be called.
Brooke is built better than most to withstand injury ... she has a titanium rod and screws in her neck ... from a swimming pool accident in 2005 in which she broke her neck.
No word on the identity of the pajama man ... or why he was rockin' flannels in the middle of the day.

Out with the old, in with the new ... even when your new car looks just like the old one -- at least that's how the guys from "American Pickers" do things.
