'90210' Star I'll Change Your Flat, But No ... We're Not Gonna Hang Out

10/16/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1015_Matt-Lanter-changes-tire_wm"90210" hunk Matt Lanter nailed the role of a AAA tow truck driver by coming to the rescue of 2 teenage girls -- one of whom is hoping the run-in will be her big break in Hollywood. 

The girls thought they were totally screwed when they got a flat in a Sherman Oaks, CA parking lot -- but Matt was Johnny-on-the-spot ... and offered to help fix the flat.

When it was all done, he gave one of them his manager's number when she slyly -- and wisely -- mentioned she's an aspiring actress. Her luck ran out when she asked Matt how she could get in touch with him.

All she got was his Snapchat info ... plus, the tire-change, of course.



Ray J Princess Love Is Gonna Be Pissed ... I Got HER Car Towed

10/15/2015 10:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ray J's fight over his breakfast tab was more serious than we thought, because it turns out it wasn't HIS car he got towed ... it was his girlfriend's, and the key to her luxury ride is STILL missing.

As we reported, Ray J had a dispute with the staff at Kitchen24 over his bill, and cops were called -- but what we couldn't figure out was why a tow truck got into the whole mess.

Short story, long -- Ray J left the key fob to Princess Love's Mercedes-Benz in the restaurant when he left, but was still able to start the car and drive off. It has one of those fancy key-less starters, and the car was close enough to the restaurant that it started.

Everything went downhill after that ... ending with AAA taking away the Benz.

Listen to Ray's explanation. Two things are clear -- 1. He thinks someone in Kitchen24 still has his key, and 2. Princess Love is gonna tear him a new one.

Floyd Mayweather Pimp Replacement Jeep In the Works ... After Roadside Inferno

10/11/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-floyd-main-jeep-01Floyd Mayweather won't spend too long mourning the death of the custom Jeep that burned to death Wednesday ... 'cause TMZ Sports has learned he's got an even PIMPER version on the way. 

We broke the story ... Mayweather lost 4 whips in that crazy trailer fire in Arizona -- including 2 Rolls-Royces, a Bentley and the brand new suped up Jeep he picked up in Miami back in July.  

You can see the burned out frame of the Jeep in the pics of the wreckage. 


But don't worry Floyd, we spoke with Alex Vega -- owner of The Auto Firm in Miami, where the original Jeep was tricked out -- and he tells us his crew is already conjuring up the remix.

"We have already been in the works on making him another custom Avorza Jeep that is going to be even crazier than the one he already had."

It's gonna be an expensive task ... Mayweather's last Jeep cost over $100k to customize and featured Avorza 35 inch wheels, and a high-tech iPad integration system which controls everything inside of the vehicle.

For all that, you think he'd take better care of it (kidding). 

Floyd Mayweather 4 Expensive Cars Up In Flames ... In Trailer Fire

10/9/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-floyd-burnt-cars-tmz-launch-01Floyd Mayweather's pricey car collection took a massive hit this week -- when a trailer transporting Floyd's Bentley and 2 Rolls Royce whips burned down to the ground ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told the truck was transporting Floyd's rides from Vegas to Miami when something went wrong just outside of Phoenix, Arizona on October 7th at 1:31 AM ... and the entire unit went up in flames. 

You can see in the pics, the cars were burnt to a crisp -- including one of Floyd's custom Jeeps. 

It's unclear how the fire started -- but Arizona State Troopers confirm the incident and say there were no injuries reported. 

TMZ Sports contacted the transportation company and confirmed the cars were shipped through Obi Okeke at Fusion Luxury Motors -- Floyd's longtime car guy. 

We reached out to Floyd and Okeke -- no comment from either one.

1006_the_truck_twitter_SUBJason Aldean might have made it over the Canadian border just fine but some of his equipment wasn't so lucky after a nasty car wreck.

A tractor trailer carrying a ton of Aldean's gear allegedly lost control on a British Columbia highway, the big rig then hit a rock and flipped completely over. Luckily, the driver suffered only minor injuries. 

As for the concert ... it was supposed to be Tuesday night but has been delayed until Wednesday night. 

The cause of the accident is still under investigation. 

'Jersey Shore' Vinny Guadagnino Calling All Haters ... Come Buy My 'Washed Up' Lambo

10/5/2015 1:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005_vinny-jersey-shore-lamborghini-sale-ebay-inside-photos_launch"Jersey Shore" alum Vinny Guadagnino doesn't care if people think he's a washed-up reality star desperate for cash ... he's unloading his white 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo on eBay.

Vinny posted a pic of the whip with the message, "Attention rich people! I'm selling my car ... I know I know what you haters want to comment, 'reality star, washed up, broke, need money, etc..' Feel free to!"

It's unclear if he's really strapped for cash or just cleverly wording his post to generate buzz ... like a good used car salesman would.

Starting bid is $169k and so far ... no takers, but there's still a week to go. If Vinny's pitch doesn't net a buyer, perhaps the mileage will -- he's only logged 1,190 miles!


Mischa Barton Repo Man Coming For Her Audi Q3

9/30/2015 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mischa Barton better put her brand new Audi Q3 in high gear if she doesn't want the repo man to take it back ... because she hasn't paid a dime on her lease in 4 months.

Mischa signed the car lease at the end of March. She put down $2,300 and agreed to $696.29 a month for 3 years ... but she's only made one payment. 

According to legal docs, the leasing company got impatient and demanded she return the Audi, but she didn't. So now the leasing company is turning up the heat, demanding full payment -- $40k.

Barton's financial problems are well-documented  ... she sued her mom Nuala back in April, claiming the momager pocketed a big chunk of her earnings and even forced her out of her own house.



Paul Walker Daughter Sues Porsche He Was Burned Alive

9/28/2015 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-paul-walker-meadow-walker-porsche-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Paul Walker survived the impact of the crash that took his life but suffered horrifically as he was burned alive ... this according to a wrongful death lawsuit his daughter has filed against Porsche. 

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- lawyers for 16-year-old Meadow Walker claim when the Porsche Carrera GT crashed and broke apart, Paul's seat belt "snapped Walker's torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis," and trapping him in the passenger seat.

The suit claims the fire didn't erupt for 1 minute and 20 seconds after impact, but Paul was helplessly trapped.  When the fire broke out, Paul was still alive.  The suit alleges, "Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned."

Law enforcement said the cause of the crash was speeding -- 80 to 93 MPH -- at the hands of driver Roger Rodas. But the lawsuit says Rodas was only going between 63 and 71 MPH when it careened out of control. And the suit alleges the car would never have careened if it had a proper stabilization system.

Meadow's lawyers claim Porsche knew the Carrera GT had "a history of instability and control issues."  

Meadow's lawyers say the defect could have been corrected with a Porsche Stability Management System (PSM), which prevents swerving. They say the company intentionally decided not to install PSMs in the Carrera GT, even though it was standard in many other models.

The suit raises other issues with the car, including claims there were deficient side door reinforcements and fuel lines that did not adequately protect the car from erupting in flames. 

Meadow's lawyer, Jeff Milam, tells TMZ, "The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn't belong on the street.  And we shouldn't be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas."

The wrongful death lawsuit does not put a figure on damages.



Fetty Wap Pushes the Limits on Motorbikes

9/28/2015 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fetty Wap has no fear of riding dangerously when he's on a motorcycle, which was evident during a recent music video shoot -- and a possible warning of what was to come.

Fetty was at Platinum 84 Gentleman's club in Denver on Sept. 14 ... with Chris Brown and French Montana, and spent most of the day riding a dirt bike for the music video. 

Sources on set say Fetty was riding carelessly, even when they weren't recording -- zipping between people and vehicles while doing tricks without a helmet.

Of course, riding on a set is different from the open road, but we're told it was clear Fetty is an extremely confident rider. 

Cops are still investigating this weekend's accident in Jersey, but law enforcement sources tell us it appears Fetty is at fault for the crash.

Fetty Wap's been hit with 3 tickets ... one for every break in his leg after that motorcycle accident.

Cops in Paterson, NJ -- Fetty's hometown -- cited Fetty for driving without a license, no insurance, and failing to produce registration for his bike.

As we told you ... Fetty wrecked while attempting to pass a car on Saturday. He slammed into a car going in the opposite direction, and says he fractured his left leg in 3 places. 

Deontay Wilder Move Over Mayweather ... I Got a Gator Skin Lambo!

9/26/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925_Deontay-Wilder-lambo-launchHeavyweight champ Deontay Wilder wants to be the next Floyd Mayweather Jr. -- and already has a great a record, a title belt, and now he also has a baller exotic car to rival some of Floyd's.

Wilder's defending his PBC Heavyweight title Saturday night in Vegas, and sources close to the champ tell TMZ Sports he'll have a great prize waiting for him at home -- a brand new Lambo Aventador.

We're told Wilder dropped a grip of cash -- $560,000 to be precise -- on the 2015 whip, which retails for a paltry $398k. Wilder jacked up his price with some Alabama custom touches, like wrapping it in gator skin! Relax, it's not real gator ... just a print. 

Wilder, known as the Bronze Bomber, also got Michael Koss at Exotic Euro Cars to slap on a coat of bronze. We're told Deontay bragged to Koss, he would knock out his Saturday night opponent, Johann Duhaupas

It's a good bet. Deontay's 34-0 ... with 33 KOs!

MLB Star Hector Olivera Post-Defection Perfection ... $50k To Pimp Out Maybach

9/26/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Braves slugger Hector Olivera just came to America a year ago, but he's clearly exercising his freedom of swag ... dropping $50k to pimp out his 2016 Maybach.

Hector signed a 6 year, $62 million deal earlier this year, and dropped  a chunk on the ride. But standard features weren't enough. He went to the Auto Firm in Miami to make it truly special.

Auto Firm boss, Alex Vega, says he added red and black Avorza "Honeycomb" leather, AV9 custom 23 inch wheels, plus state-of-the-art navigation and rear entertainment systems.

FYI -- the Maybach set Hector back $200k, so there's only one thing we can say about spending an extra $50k just to make it your own ...

God Bless America.

Pope Francis Let's Make a Deal ... Pushing Fiat Sales

9/24/2015 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0924-pope-getty-01What does Pope Francis have to do to get you in a Fiat today? The answer is, not much -- just cruising D.C. in one is enough to drive in customers. 

The Pope shocked everyone when he touched down in Washington on Tuesday by scooting around town in a black Fiat 500L ... apparently reppin' for Italy, and millions of people took notice.  

Safford Fiat of Tyson's Corner -- the biggest dealer in the D.C. area -- has been slammed since the Pontiff arrived. General sales manager, Mark Cowdin, tells us customers are pouring in to learn more about his Excellency's whip.

0924-sub-fiat-pope-stafford-fiat-01Mark says they didn't get a heads-up from corporate about Francis' chauffeur-driven wheels, but they're scrambling to roll out "Papal Deals." He says the Pontiff's visit hasn't scored them a sale yet, but thinks that will change with all the interest and the slogan -- "If it's good enough for the Pope, it's good enough for you."

We were thinking, "Fiat. Holier than thou. Plus we don't lie about emissions!" 

By the way, interesting that Fiat once hired Charlie Sheen to tout its cars. Guess they've covered both ends of the spectrum now.
