Blac Chyna Car Crash Reality Star is Hit and Run Culprit

11/21/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-blac-chyna-car-crash-accident-photos-launch-3Blac Chyna was telling the truth when she said she wasn't behind the wheel during a hit and run crash earlier this month ... we've learned, the driver's a reality TV star, and she's in big trouble.

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna's white BMW nailed another vehicle carrying 3 passengers in the valley. Witnesses say two African-American women in mini skirts bailed from the Beamer and Chyna remained adamant, it wasn't her. 

Now, sources close to the investigation are backing BC up. We're told Paige Addison from the show "Boss Nails" met with the LAPD earlier this week with her attorney and admitted she was the driver.

We're told Paige told cops Blac Chyna was not in the car and not at the crash scene.

Law enforcement sources say the case will be referred to prosecutors ... leaving the scene of an accident where there are injuries can be prosecuted as a felony.

We reached out to Paige ... so far, no word back. 


Reggie Bush Gets Mom $200,000 Bentley ... Happy Birthday!

11/20/2015 7:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-reggie-bush-new-car-INSTAGRAM-01He might be staring down the barrel of retirement, but Reggie Bush is making it clear -- he ain't worried about money -- 'cause he just bought his mom a brand new $200,000 Bentley.  

Reggie's mom just turned the big 50 -- and to celebrate, the injured 49ers running back hooked her up with the keys to a sick Bentley Flying Spur ... which (depending on the options) can cost up to $250k. 

Bush has reportedly made more than $60 MILLION during his NFL career -- not counting all of the endorsement $$$ he's racked up. Plus, he's planning on suing the city of St. Louis for a TON of cash over the knee injury he suffered there earlier this season. 

Bottom line ... his knee may be hurting (you can see the brace in the pic), but his wallet sure as hell ain't. 

Apollo Nida Feds to Seize Prized Ducati Watch Out Kandi Burruss

11/19/2015 2:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119_Apollo-Nida_kandi_burruss_tmz_gettyThe feds are are hot on the trail of Apollo Nida's super expensive ATV and motorcycle ... and it's led them to the doorstep of 'RHOA' co-star Kandi Burruss.

The government is on the hunt for anything of value that Apollo owns, so his victims can be made whole. Apollo owns nearly $2 mil in restitution for money laundering and check fraud.

As he sits in prison, the feds are looking to seize Apollo's 2014 Ducati and Yamaha Raptor ATV.  It looks like he was trying to hide them, because they're not at his house. They're tucked away at Kandi's.  

But Apollo has a problem ... 'RHOA' aired an episode Sunday where Kandi confessed the wheels were in her garage.  We've learned 2 days later the feds were in court, getting an order from a judge allowing them to pay a visit to Kandi and grab the fancy toys.

Here's the good news. The feds are fans of 'Real Housewives.'


Lewis Hamilton Crashes $2 MILLION CAR ... Blames 'Heavy Partying'

breaking news

1113-lewis-hamilton-instagramFormula 1 racing champ Lewis Hamilton has an unreal excuse for why he crashed his $2 MILLION Pagani Zonda supercar in Monaco this week -- he'd been PARTYING WAY TOO HARD!!!

Hamilton was reportedly driving through the streets of Monte Carlo early Tuesday morning when he lost control and hit a parked car around 3:30 AM. 

According to the BBC, Hamilton had one hell of an honest excuse for the wreck -- "It was a result of heavy partying and not much rest for 10 days. I am a bit run down. I have been non-stop and trying to fit training in at the same time and not getting a lot of sleep."

Cops responded to the scene and Hamilton was given a breathalyzer -- but reportedly passed. 

Hamilton later went to Instagram to issue a statement confirming the crash and adding, "Nobody was hurt, which is the most important thing."

"But the car was obviously damaged and I made very light contact with a stationary vehicle. Talking with the team and my doctor, we decided together that it was best for me to rest at home."

"I feel we all must take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes happen to us all but what's important is that we learn from them and grow."

Blac Chyna Car Crash Accident Scene Photos

11/11/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110_blac_chyna_car_crash_accident_photos_launchBlac Chyna could be in big legal trouble ... her car was involved in a horrific accident early Sunday morning and the driver -- whoever it was -- is now a fugitive from justice.

We've obtained pics of the aftermath of the violent crash. Here's what we've learned. At 1:30 AM, Blac Chyna's white BMW was allegedly speeding down Reseda Blvd. south of Ventura Blvd. in the San Fernando Valley, when it blew a stop sign and slammed into a car that was turning left.

The collision was so violent Blac Chyna's car took out a pole and a fire hydrant. The other car flew across the lanes and we're told all 3 passengers were injured.

Our sources say the 3 passengers saw 2 African-American women in mini skirts get out of the BMW and jump in a car that had been following them, leaving the BMW behind.

Police have opened a hit and run investigation.

As for Blac Chyna ... one source tells us she stayed in Saturday night and was not driving. We're told she often loans her car out to friends, and that's likely what happened Saturday night.

Under California law, if the owner of a car gives someone else permission to drive and the driver gets in an accident, the owner and driver are legally on the hook.

Chyna's lawyer tells TMZ his client was not involved in the accident ... he says she wasn't even at the scene.


The Game We Know It's BIG ... But a Disability?

11/10/2015 12:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-the-game-akmgsiThe Game has grossly overestimated where his giant junk can take him because as far as we know ... being well endowed does not warrant a disabled parking placard. 

The rapper pulled his tricked out jeep into a blue spot Tuesday during a bank run in the Valley -- but walked limp-free to and from his whip. A nearby security guard noticed Game's illegal parking job, and snapped a picture ... of the jeep.

Game's other ride ... was far more concealed this time around. But just in case you forgot (we know you didn't) ...


NY Mets' Yoenis Cespedes TREAT. YO. SELF. Gets New 'World Series' Ride

11/8/2015 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1106_Yoenis_Cespedes_new_ride_launchNY Mets superstar Yoenis Cespedes decided to reward himself for getting to the World Series this year -- so he dropped $75k to pimp out a brand new 3-wheeled super car ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cespedes has become OBSESSED with designing and customizing whips -- especially with Alex Vegas from The Auto Firm in Miami. 

So, all he needed was an excuse to splurge on a new ride -- and the World Series run felt like the perfect reason.

The result? A custom Avorza Polaris -- with Avorza red and grey leather seats and a custom red #52 on the hood. 

In total, Cespedes put $75k worth of work into the $20k car ... and the end result is pretty sweet. 

It'll look pretty good next to that fire-breathing Lambo that's already in his garage ...

1105-george-barris-GETTY-01George Barris, the creator of the amazing 1966 Batmobile and many other legendary whips ... has died.

The Batmobile sold at auction in 2013 for $4.62 million.

Barris died early Thursday. We're told he'd been battling a brain tumor. He was just shy of 90.

1103_KENDALL-JENNER-HAILY-BALDWIN-AKM-GSIKendall Jenner looks like she's starring in a remake of "American Graffiti" ... tooling around in a classic, awesome '57 Corvette Stingray.

Kendall was behind the wheel as BFF Hailey Baldwin rode shotgun Tuesday in Bev Hills.

We're told the car was a present for Kendall's 20th birthday ... a present she gave herself.

Fact is, 1957 was one of the most epic years in auto design history, with the Vette and T-Bird leading the pack.

Unclear what it set her back, but $70k would not be out of the question.

10/31/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1030-billy-bob-tmz-01Billy Bob Thornton was taken to an L.A. hospital by ambulance after a car accident on Friday.

Brandon Jenner I Don't Believe in Car Jinx

10/28/2015 9:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028_brandon_jenner_Caitlyn_old_escalade_launchBrandon Jenner is clearly not superstitious .... because he got his dad's hand-me-down SUV -- the one that triggered a fatal car crash.

We're told Caitlyn gave her son the Escalade after it underwent some serious body work.  

Brandon needed a safe ride because he's now carting around a wife and new baby. The SUV is certainly road tested. It smashed into 2 cars on PCH in February ... a Lexus and a Prius, yet the damage wasn't enough to total it.

It passed the crash test for sure ... still a little weird.
