LeAnn Rimes

Accidentally Sets Off Airplane Fire Alarm

... MY BAD!!!

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

LeAnn Rimes is lucky she's famous ... because most people would be in serious trouble if they set off the fire alarm on an airplane, but she was able to joke about it.

The country music/reality TV star was on a flight to Los Angeles, when she took a bathroom break to freshen up. As she explains it: "Leave it up to me to set off the fire alarm in the airplane bathroom w/ @theDrybar dry shampoo #purecomedy #firsttimeforeverything."

Our photog was waiting for LeAnn when she landed, and she laughed off the whole thing -- although it sounds like the flight staff wasn't as amused ... at first, anyway.

Check out how LeAnn diffused the situation, and uh ... nice hair?

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Yung Joc just learned a hard lesson ... speeding can open Pandora's Box and land you in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rapper was pulled over by Atlanta PD Thursday for speeding. Cops ran his license and discovered it was suspended. But that wasn't all.

YJ has a warrant out for his arrest. We don't know the nature of the warrant, but it doesn't matter much. The rapper was cuffed and taken to the cop shop for a not-so-pretty mug. He's still in custody. 

You may recall... Joc recently battled his baby mama to prevent her from airing his dirty laundry on an upcoming project called "Baby Mamas Atlanta, Virginia, Denver & Los Angeles."

More laundry in the hamper.

John Larroquette

Alleged Crash Victim ...

His Insurance Co. Is Screwing Me

EXCLUSIVE

John Larroquette Crash Victim"Night Court" star John Larroquette was involved in a brutal car accident that severely injured a reality TV star, who claims he can't get no satisfaction ... from John or his insurance company. 

The alleged victim is Joe Meinwieser -- a tattoo artist on Oxygen's "Tattoos After Dark" -- and his list of injuries are horrific: broken ribs, fractured spine, fractured hand, and loss of half his kidney.

Meinwieser claims Larroquette made an illegal turn out of a Venice, CA parking lot in December -- smashing into him and his motorcycle. 

0423-sub-joe-meinswieser-twitter-01Police investigated, and law enforcement sources tell us it's unlikely JL will face criminal charges.

That's not sitting well with Joe -- who claims Larroquette promised to cover his medical expenses ... but the actor's insurance company won't pay up. He says he can't work, and his unpaid medical bills are mounting. 

Unclear if Larroquette is aware of Meinwieser's situation. We've made multiple attempts to contact him, but his people aren't responding. Joe says his next move will be a lawsuit.

Armstrong appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" this week to talk about why he's participating in Bo Jackson's "Bo Bikes Bama" charity ride on May 2nd. 

During the conversation, Lance talked about how much Bo's support has meant to him during some of his tougher times. He also talked about spin class and beer pong. 

That's when he brought up the incident in Aspen -- where he pled guilty to careless driving after crashing into two parked cars back in December. 

It's the first time he's mentioned the incident ... and he took total responsibility.

0424-dan-bilzerian-nascar-TMZ-01Dan Bilzerian is new face of NASCAR ... well, at least for one race ... 'cause the billionaire playboy's grill will be on the front hood of a car competing in Saturday's Sprint Cup Race ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

So, how the hell did he make that happen? Dan's a huge poker player --and he recently beat the snot out of BK Racing owner Ron Devine.

But instead of forcing Ron to pay up in cash, Dan wanted to go all Ricky Bobby ... so he made a deal to get his mug plastered on one of Ron's NASCAR whips, which will be competing at Richmond International Speedway.  

The final product is hilarious ... with Dan's giant bearded face right on the front of Matt DiBenedetto's #83 car. He also added a sticker of Dan's pet goat Zeus to the rear for good measure. 

Baaaaaaad ass.
