Kylie Jenner

Ticketed for Driving While Black

11/18/2014 5:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118_kylie_jenner_pulled_over_x17Kylie Jenner is getting to know the entire LAPD police force one by one ... because another cop just pulled her over and wrote her up.

The 17-year-old was driving her Range Rover in the San Fernando Valley when the patrol officer lit her up because her tail lights were not up to code. The whip was tricked out and the black covers over the red tail lights didn't cut it.

The non-moving violation is the latest in a string of vehicular hijinks ... she's been in 2 accidents, ticketed 3 times and sued once.

At least she's not dating a 24-year-old. Oh, wait ...

Chris Brown

Slaps Tupac Lyrics

On $500K Lambo!!

11/18/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chris Brown Paints Car TupacChris Brown knows how to suck all the value out of a perfectly good $500,000 Lamborghini ... hire someone to slap lyrics from a Tupac song all over the formerly sexy ride.

Chris' inspiration for his latest paint job was Tupac's "Lord Knows" -- and it took artist Huero 16 hours to hand paint the song lyrics on the car's roof and hood.

Give CB credit for one thing -- he made sure Huero didn't use any f-words or n-words in the final product ... y'know, to keep it kid friendly. That's classy ... gangsta style.

Of course, you remember some of Chris' previous lambo work -- the multi-colored Hot Wheels version, the powder blue, and the one covered in fingerprint residue.

Ferruccio Lamborghini ... continuously rolling in his grave since Breezy learned to drive.

Josh Gordon

Ends Car Dealership Job

'He Was a Helluva Salesman'

11/17/2014 6:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117_josh_gordon_at_dealership
Josh Gordon's 10-week stint at an Ohio car dealership was NO JOKE ... the guy worked his ass off and was a big part in several car sales ... multiple employees tell TMZ Sports.  

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver has been reinstated -- and is officially back with the team -- which means he will no longer be working with the sales team at Sarchione Auto Group in Ohio. 

It seemed like the gig was a joke at first ... but we're told Gordon took the job seriously and treated the whole thing like a very serious apprenticeship. 

"He was totally into it," one employee tells us ... "He was very patient with customers. He answered their questions. Josh knows a lot about cars."

We're told Josh often shadowed one of the owners -- spending most of his time at the Chevrolet dealership -- and showed real potential when it came to working in the car biz. 

"He was working a full schedule. 8AM to 8PM Mondays and Thursdays ... 8AM to 6PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. He also worked 8-3 on Saturdays."

We're told several of Gordon's teammates visited the WR on the lot -- unclear if any of them actually bought a car. 

But get this ... Cleveland Cavs player Mike Miller leased a car from the dealership ... and we're told Gordon had a lot to do with the sale. 

"You can tell he's looking at the business long term. He's a really nice kid."

Dropkick Murphys

Cancel Concert After

Tour Bus Kills Pedestrian

breaking news

1116-dropkick-murphys-getty-01The Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys cancelled a concert in Tulsa scheduled for Sunday night after their tour bus struck and killed a pedestrian very early that morning.

The band was headed from San Antonio to the airport in Dallas when they say someone ran onto the highway and in front of their tour bus. The band says cops told them they suspect it was a suicide. 

With their tour bus too damaged to continue on, and the bus driver severely shaken up, they tried to find other ways to Tulsa in order to make the gig ... but came up short.

A makeup date has yet to be announced.

Bruce Jenner

Wrecks Truck in Brutal Race

Exclusive Details

1116-bruce-jenner-racing-INSTAGRAM-01Bruce Jenner got tossed into a Mexican ditch, and is lucky to be alive ... after wrecking his million dollar ride in the legendary Baja 1000 off-road race. 

Bruce and his son Burt Jenner were taking part in the brutal competition -- in which multiple drivers and spectators have been killed -- when their suped up truck rolled on Thursday. 

We're told Bruce was behind the wheel around mile 170 ... when he veered into the ditch and ripped off the power steering line. He and Burt had to wait a few hours for their crew to make it to their location.

As we previously reported ... sponsors and investors sunk a million bucks into the truck so Bruce and Burt could race.

During the break, the Jenners drank beer and ate pizza with some locals. When the crew showed up the team leader said they'd have to pull out of the race because -- keeping it real -- they lost too many hours after the wreck.  They had no chance of winning.

At least Bruce still has his gold medal.

Patrick Schwarzenegger

I'm Riding

For TWO Now

1115-patrick-schwarzenegger-tongue-bike-ride-SPLASH-01Patrick Schwarzenegger one-upped his fitness legend dad during a bike ride -- and even flashed one of his new GF Miley Cyrus' trademark moves.

PS and Arnold Schwarzenegger went cruising around Santa Monica Friday on their bicycles -- and for some reason ... Patrick was towing an extra bike. Even with the extra cargo ... he was leading pops.

Note Patrick's form -- tongue out. Looks like Miley's rubbing off in more ways than one. 

As we previously reported ... the duo was spotted locking lips at a USC football game this week.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star

It Wasn't Me, Babe!

But Here's a Brand New Car Anyway

EXCLUSIVE

Mally Mall Buys Girlfriend CarBeing on "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" just cost Mally Mall $250K  -- in the form of the brand new car he had to buy his girlfriend to repair their relationship after a full season of reality show BS.

Mally Mall just scooped up a 2014 Bentley Continental coupe for his gf Nikki Mudarris. We're told the rapper/producer's dodged most of the serious drama (as in, physical violence) through Season 1 -- but felt guilty Nikki had to deal with some cast gossip about him.

Pretty sweet trade off for Nikki ... who's gotta be used to drama, anyway. She manages a bunch of strip clubs in L.A and Las Vegas.

Strippers = Drama.

Pissed off L.A. Homeowners

Waze is the Devil!

11/14/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Waze App Neighborhoods PissedThe Waze app is destroying neighborhoods in Los Angeles ... so claim some very pissed off homeowners.

There have been several neighborhood meetings in the last few weeks around the city because some posh neighborhoods have become as congested as the freeways around rush hour.

Even if you don't live in L.A. you've probably heard about the legendary traffic jams on the 405. That freeway has caused thousands of motorists to rely on Waze to find shortcuts, and a glut of cars are ending up on the same side streets and it's become a nightmare for homeowners trying to leave.

So the neighborhood meetings are all about torpedoing the Waze App, and they think they found a waze.

Here's the plan ... since Waze is based on crowdsourcing, residents are uniting to report congestion in their area so cars are rerouted to other streets.

It's starting to catch on ... with the possible end game that motorists will go back to where they came from ... the 405.

Miley Cyrus and Arnold's Son

Proof They're Banging ...

Or Just Driving Together

11/13/2014 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus Dating Patrick SchwarzeneggerMiley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger drove home together from an event Wednesday night in Hollywood ... which must mean they're totally doing the nasty, right?! 

Miley and Arnold's son were seen leaving a Q&A at the Egyptian Theatre for a new movie produced by Maria Shriver called "Still Alice" ... before getting into a ride and peacing out.

Might seem like thin evidence. .. but Patrick admitted in 2011 Miley was his ultimate celebrity crush -- and it's not like he's bad looking or anything.

Bangerz.

John Wayne Bobbitt

Jack-Knifed

Neck Broken, Dong Intact

11/13/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1112_John-Wayne-Bobbitt_HOSPITALJohn Wayne Bobbitt got cut off again ... and this time he suffered a broken neck.

JWB was driving to his brother's house in Buffalo Tuesday when another car ran a red light and T-boned his jeep. John suffered a broken vertebrae in his neck and a slipped disk.

We're told he should fully recover.

John notoriously beat his wife Lorena -- so she claimed -- and she got revenge in 1993 by cutting his penis off. Doctors reattached his schlong and John went on to do porn and screw scores of chicks.

We're assuming his penis is in fair condition.

Yao Ming

7'6" vs. Passenger Seat

The Struggle Is Real!!!

EXCLUSIVE

111214_yao_ming_launch_v2
File Under: "The Perils of Being Giant" ... because 7'6" Yao Ming hilariously tried to squeeze into the front passenger seat of a SUV this morning -- and just didn't fit. 

It's not like it's a tiny 2-door coupe ... the former NBA superstar had a massive Lincoln Navigator waiting for him -- and it still couldn't handle all 90 inches of Yao. 

Eventually, Ming crunched into the backseat ... but even that was a tight squeeze. 

FYI -- Yao was in NYC to promote WildAid ... a wildlife protection group that is helping to save some other creatures ... African elephants and rhinos.

Taylor Swift

Didn't Smash Vintage Car

It Was All An Illusion

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift Blank Space Music VideoNot even Taylor Swift is crazy enough to take a golf club to the gorgeous Shelby Cobra featured in her new music video for "Blank Space" ... one of the dudes in the video now says it was all just CGI. 

Car lovers around the world were understandably aghast when they saw Taylor go full Elin Nordegren on one of the greatest cars in history (assuming car lovers watch Taylor Swift videos).

But Andrea Denver -- one of the male models in the video -- told our photog in NYC we can all rest easy ... Taylor's metal mutilation was as fake as her relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal.

Watch this video at your own peril … Andrea is better seen than heard.

Bruce Jenner

Putting His Balls On the Line, But...

Not His Pesos in Baja Race

11/11/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Baja 1000
Bruce Jenner
will be showing off his immense huevos by competing with his son in the legendary Baja 1000 this week ... thanks to more than $1 million in sponsorships.

Bruce and Burt Jenner will attempt to tame one of the world's most dangerous off-road courses through the Mexican desert at insane speeds -- and the 5-day race ain't cheap.

Sources connected to Team Jenner tell us entry fees alone are $125K minimum, the truck cost $500K ... plus several hundred thousands more in expenses and equipment. All in, we're talking more than $1 million, but Bruce isn't spending a cent of his own dough.

Team owner Craig Potts, along with sponsors Gladiator Tires and House Beer, are putting up all the cash. We're told Burt will drive the 1st 400 miles with Bruce navigating, then Bruce will take the wheel for the 2nd leg ... and Potts gets the home stretch.

The race, which begins Wednesday, is no cake walk. X Games star Kurt Caselli was killed last year, and multiple drivers and spectators have died during the event over the years. 

Buena suerte, señors!
