4/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Patrick knows the dangers of the road, which is why he took his brand new Harley-Davidson to church to get it blessed.

Patrick -- best known as T-1000 from 'Terminator 2' -- took his hog to St. Thomas, the Apostle church in Hollywood, and got it blessed courtesy of Father Ian Elliott Davies. It's the second bike Patrick's made holy.

As for how it's done ... some words by the good Father, with a sprinkle of holy water before Sunday mass.  

Patrick's endgame ... protecting him from harm as he tools down the highway.

Rob Kardashian Nailed for Triple Digit Speeding

EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian's mission to bail out Blac Chyna cost him dearly -- TWO huge speeding tickets, one of which could cost him his license ... that is, if he had one.

Rob told us on Monday he'd lost his driver's license, and hinted it had something to do with outstanding tickets. That's not exactly what happened. We've learned Rob's license expired on his birthday, March 17.

His bigger problem is speeding. You'll recall, when BC got arrested in Texas ... Rob hopped in his Bentley and blazed across the desert to rescue her. According to law enforcement sources, New Mexico cops nailed him on Jan. 30 when he was headed east. 

Then on Jan. 31 -- on his way home with Chyna -- CHiPs clocked Rob doing 107 mph in a 70 through Blythe, CA.

Rob's attorney was actually in court Tuesday, and entered a not guilty plea for that ticket. The expired license is just a trip to the DMV, but getting out of the 107 is gonna be tougher.

41916-bernie-ecclestone-gettyWomen drivers will never be taken seriously in Formula One ... so says the man who RUNS the organization, Bernie Ecclestone

Ecclestone -- the most powerful person in all of racing -- was speaking at an Advertising Week Europe conference in London when someone asked about women drivers. 

"I don’t know whether a woman would physically be able to drive an F1 car quickly, and they wouldn’t be taken seriously,” he said Tuesday according to The Daily Beast

He did however say when it comes to running businesses, "Women are more competent, and they don’t have massive egos."

FYI -- there have only been FIVE female F1 drivers who have ever competed in a Grand Prix ... with the most recent being Giovanna Amati ... who last raced in 1992.

French IndyCar racing champion Simon Pagenaud has had enough ... enough of people confusing him for Sacha Baron Cohen's wacky french driving character from 'Talladega Nights.'

We got Simon at the Grand Prix of Long Beach -- shorty before he won the damn thing -- and asked about his uncanny resemblance to Jean Girard ... Ricky Bobby's Franco-Foe in 'Talladega Nights.'

The resemblance is pretty uncanny ... and SP says he gets heckled and taunted for it all the time ... but tells our camera girl he's ready for it to stop ... FOREVER.

Good luck, dude ... might have to learn to live with this one.

041516-brandon-marshall-gettyJust days after Will Smith was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident ... another NFL star says he was a passenger in a similar situation where things got thiiiis close to getting violent. 

Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall just tweeted about the situation ... saying, "My uber driver a G, Somebody cut him off and almost hit him. And he pulled up to the side of him and got out the car and told him to get out."

What's especially scary is the fact Marshall says his driver got OUT of the car to confront the other guy ... it's almost exactly what appears to have happened in New Orleans. 

This time, it appears the situation was diffused before things got violent ... thankfully. 

Stay safe out there people.

'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Star Hospitalized After Car Wreck

4/14/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0413_Lainie_Kazan_crash_accident_launchThe actress who plays the mom in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was taken to the hospital after a nasty car wreck ... and some witnesses say it was her fault.

We're told Lainie Kazan was driving in the Valley Saturday and drifted into an oncoming lane. We're told her Lincoln SUV struck another vehicle head-on. And, of all places, the accident happened right in front of The Great Greek restaurant. For real. 

Our on-scene sources tell us Lainie and the other driver were both conscious afterward -- but you can see in the pics Lainie's neck was immobilized in a neck brace.

Lainie's current condition is unclear -- her rep wouldn't comment. No citations have been issued, but cops tell us the accident is still under investigation. 

Pete Wentz No Special Treatment In Tow Truck Caper

4/14/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0413_PETE_WENTZ_CAR-TOW_INFPete Wentz did not get a shady break from the company that hooked up his illegally parked car and then backed off ... because we've learned Pete pulled out his wallet, paid piper, and it was all legal.

As we reported, Pete's Porsche was parked illegally on a Hollywood street, so a parking enforcement cop ticketed him and then called the tow truck company. The whip was hooked up to the tow truck when Pete walked up to the car and got the tow truck driver to release it.

We've learned Pete followed a little-known law. He paid the towing company's fee as well as an administrative fee. In return the tow truck driver unhooked the Porsche.

We found out tow truck companies will let a driver pay even if their car is en route to the tow yard. The tow truck company wants its money and the costs paid, and the driver gets the car back.

We're told in Pete's case it cost him $237. Not a bad deal.

EXCLUSIVE

041316-manziel-josh-gordon-tmz-gettyJohnny Manziel was a passenger in a car that allegedly hit a light pole and fled the scene in Hollywood this weekend ... and the person who picked him up after the crash was Josh Gordon.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Manziel was interviewed by LAPD about a crash that occurred on the Sunset Strip around 10:45 PM on Saturday night.

We're told ... cops believe the driver of the car was Manziel's good friend Ryan Silverstein -- aka OVO Ryan from Drake's OVO crew.

0413_ryan-silverstien_instagram_SUBLaw enforcement sources tell us ... cops believe Silverstein and Manziel left the scene on foot after the crash -- and were picked up by Cleveland Browns WR Gordon. 

After cops arrived to the crash scene, we're told Silverstein and Manziel came BACK to the area ... and witnesses identified Ryan as the driver because of his recognizable beard. 

Our sources tell us Manziel admitted to being a passenger in the car at the time of the crash -- but he's NOT accused of any criminal wrongdoing. Neither is Gordon for that matter. 

As for OVO Ryan, we're told cops are still investigating him for a possible misdemeanor hit-and-run. 

Attempts to contact Ryan and Manziel were unsuccessful.  

BTW, earlier that night, we spotted Manziel and OVO Ryan outside of The Nice Guy ... where Johnny told us he's living with Von Miller and not doing anything stupid. 

Ray J Sued Over a Rolls-Royce Sorry, I've Got Way Too Many Cars

EXCLUSIVE

0413-ray-j-tmz-01Ray J is deep in the car game, so deep he's having trouble keeping track of all his whips ... and now a car company's suing to get back a Rolls-Royce.

According to docs obtained by TMZ, Midway Rent A Car sued the singer after he allegedly stopped making payments on his 2010 Rolls Ghost back in October. By the way, Midway says the car's worth $202k, and it wants to repo the ride.

Sources close to Ray J tell us he's already working out a deal to become current on the payments. We're told Ray J lost track because he subleased the Ghost, but understands he's legally responsible and will pay ... to avoid a visit from the repo man. 

How does one lose track of a car payment? One gets too many cars! Ray says he's made deals for 20 cars this year -- including 3 Ferraris, 8 Range Rovers and 3 Benzes.

We're told he sells and subleases some of them to celebs and biz associates.

Disney Star Debby Ryan Arrested for Drunk Driving

041316-debby-ryan-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar1:45 PM PT -- Debby just took to Twitter about her arrest, saying, "Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgement. I recognize that I am a role model and have always worked hard to set a good example for my millions of fans. I am so sorry to disappoint everyone."update_grey_gray_barDebby Ryan, one of Disney's biggest stars, was arrested for felony drunk driving ... TMZ has learned.

The star of "Jessie" was driving in L.A. last week at around 11 PM when she made a left in her 2016 Audi and slammed into a Mercedes. Our law enforcement sources say the driver claimed injury.

Cops came, gave the 22-year-old actress a field sobriety test and promptly arrested her for felony DUI. It's standard operating procedure for cops to arrest for a felony when there's injury.

Debby got a break ... authorities decided to bump it down to a misdemeanor because the injury was minor and she blew a .11 ... not that much over the .08 legal limit. 

Debby -- who's out on $100k bail -- has been charged with 2 criminal offenses ... driving under the influence and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher. 

We reached out to her reps ... so far no word back.

Kobe Bryant What Happens to the Kobe-Copter?

4/13/2016 8:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

041316-kobe-helicopter-instagramNow that his NBA career is over -- we were wondering ... what's gonna happen to Kobe Bryant's helicopter? 

We did some digging -- here's what we found. 

First off, Kobe doesn't own the chopper he's been using to get from his home in Orange County to Staples Center -- he rents it ... and has been for years. 

But he's got a great relationship with the company that owns it -- and they've always dropped everything for Mamba when he's needed a lift. 

In fact, he used it in 2010 to get to the Lakers championship parade -- and in 2012, he fired up the aircraft to help teammate Steve Blake get to a doctor's appointment on time. 

Earlier this year, he used the helicopter as transportation for a romantic Valentine's Day afternoon with Vanessa. 

Point is ... the end of Kobe's career doesn't mean the end of heli-travel -- it just means he'll be renting it out a lot less.
