Floyd Mayweather Bugatti Oil Changes? $25,000-A-POP!

2/10/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Owning exotic cars ain't cheap -- just ask Floyd Mayweather who spends more on an OIL CHANGE than some people make in a year!!!!

TMZ Sports spoke with Floyd's longtime car guy Obi Okeke -- aka Doctor Bugatti -- who was on his way over to oversee maintenance on one of the boxer's "triple red" 2012 Bugatti Grand Sport Convertible. 

Okeke has previously told us the car is worth around $3.3 MILLION

So, how much does an oil change and a tire replacement run on one of these supercars? Obe breaks it down ... and it's gonna make all of us feel really, super poor. 

There's more ... Obi also tells us what Floyd looks for in a super car and if he's in the market to buy right now. 

Spoiler Alert: When you've made more than $300 MILLION in one day, you're always in the market to buy. 

Keegan-Michael Key The Tesla's Great, But Here's What Elon Should Launch Next

2/7/2018 6:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Keegan-Michael Key is blown away by Elon Musk's latest triumph, but he has the perfect household item the great explorer should hurl into space next.

We got the "Key & Peele" star Tuesday in Bev Hills leaving The Palm and asked if he'd caught the launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket -- which was historic for lots of reasons.

He says he missed it, but sounds pleased with the results. Then he hits our camera guy with a little bit of a hot take -- humans aren't stepping foot onto Mars anytime soon ... despite the Tesla Roadster and the mannequin spaceman zipping toward the red planet. 

Keegan thinks the car is cool, but there's something that Martians may find more useful.

He makes a solid point ... that a private citizen with a passion for space exploration might be better suited to tool around the galaxy than NASA.

SpaceX Launches Powerful Falcon Heavy Rocket ... And a Tesla Roadster!!!

2/6/2018 12:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Elon Musk is a very happy (and still very rich) man after SpaceX successfully launched its Falcon Heavy rocket toward Mars -- and it was freakin' awesome to watch!

SpaceX sent up the most powerful U.S. rocket in nearly half a century from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Elon had previously said there's a good chance the Falcon Heavy rocket won't survive liftoff. He's never been happier to be wrong.

The mission goal -- send the payload beyond Mars' orbit.

Musk added, "I hope it makes it far enough away from the pad that it does not cause pad damage." Well, it did, and really cool part -- they also safely landed the reusable booster rockets back on Earth.

The launch test is another step toward colonizing Mars, which is why SpaceX is sending a Tesla Roadster as part of the rocket's test payload. David Bowie's "Space Oddity" was playing on the car's stereo system. Serious style points.

The Falcon Heavy will generate 5M pounds of thrust ... making it the most powerful launch since NASA's Saturn V that had 7.5M pounds of thrust during its Apollo mission.

Mike 'The Situation' Exotic Car Flexin' After Tax Evasion Case

2/6/2018 9:39 AM PST

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's in a dancing mood checking out luxury whips ... probably because he doesn't have to stress about dropping cash on one of them.

The Sitch was with his 'Jersey Shore' pals Ronnie, Vinny and Pauly D Monday in Miami filming for their reunion show, and visited an exotic car dealership to take a couple badass rides for a spin.

Ronnie took the wheel of a Lambo, with Mike riding shotgun -- while Pauly D and Vin hopped in a Bentley.

The sad situation is ... Sitch ain't getting any closer than a test drive. As we reported, he recently pled guilty to tax evasion, and owes a big check to the IRS. He's also looking at up to 5 years in prison and a hefty fine.

Window shopping ain't a crime though.

Travis Barker C'mon and Ride His Green Goblin!!! Then Buy It, Please

2/6/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker's old flame is back on the market, and she can be yours ... for a cool $16,900.

The flame is his 2007 Honda CBR1000RR. The Blink-182 drummer sold it a few years ago, and now the guy who bought it from him is flipping the sweet green ride. The seller tells us the bike had a mere 12 miles on it, because Travis mainly used it to promote his clothing line, "Famous Stars & Straps."

It's been featured in more photo shoots since Travis sold it, and it's easy to see why.

The 4-cylinder is quite the looker with custom rims, whitewall Pirelli Diablo tires and its glossy, show-stopping green paint.

Envy included with this purchase.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Hasta La Vista, Bugatti!!!

1/30/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Arnold Schwarzenegger is one happy used car salesman after someone took his Bugatti Veyron off his hands ... for about $2.5 million.

We're told Arnold's 2015 Veyron -- which goes 0-60 mph in 2.5 secs -- only had about 1,000 miles on it ... so it's a sweet ride. 

The buyer is Obi Okeke, aka Doctor Bugatti ... the same guy who sold Floyd Mayweather a similar whip. Okeke plans to resell it, if you're in the market for something that tops out at 267 mph.

And you can afford the inevitable tickets.

TMZ has learned Kris' 1956 Ford Thunderbird just sold for $57,000 at the famed Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. The sweet ride -- with white exterior and red leather interior -- was actually a 2016 Christmas gift from her kids.

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Jonas' old ride was in need of a badass overhaul, and he knew exactly the crew to go to -- West Coast Customs.

We got the Jonas bro picking up his newly customized whip -- a 1963 Ford Falcon -- Friday from the world famous repair shop in Burbank, CA. We're told Joe's car got a new paint job, new interior, new wheels and a new sound system ... pretty much a full rebuild by WCC.

All in all, we're told Joe's restoration brings the value of his classic ride to about $75,000 ... and it will be featured on an upcoming March episode of "Inside West Coast Customs" airing on Velocity.

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

1/8/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

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.

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
EXCLUSIVE

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.
