Michael Jordan '84 Olympic Jersey Hits Auction Block

5/20/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jordan's Team USA jersey is goin' up for auction ... and could end up being one of the most expensive pieces of M.J. memorabilia ever!

His Airness rocked the #9 jersey when Team USA dominated the 1984 Summer Olympics and is part of Grey Flannel Auctions' summer catalog ... and we're told it's the only known jersey of its kind.

Of course, '84 was the last time an amateur-led team won the gold medal for the Red, White and Blue ... before switching to pro ballers with the "Dream Team" in 1992.

M.J. memorabilia tends to rake in HUGE bucks -- Jordan's "flu game" shoes sold for $104K in 2013 -- and our friends at Grey Flannel are estimating a big haul with the jersey.

Bidding starts at $10,000 on June 2nd.

Good luck.

Rapper T-Wayne Back Off T-Pain & Weezy Fans ... I Didn't Steal My Name!!

5/20/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T-Wayne -- the Houston emcee best known for his track "Nasty Freestyle" -- says he's fed up with the backlash he's been getting since T-Pain and Lil Wayne's famous collab album dropped.

The rapper tells us fans of the "T-Wayne" album -- nearly 10 years in the making -- are pissed at him because they think he's trying to compare himself to the hip-hop legends.

T-Wayne says those fans got it twisted ... he's been going by his rap name since he was a kid. His first and middle names are Tyson Dwayne, so it's legit -- and Weezy and T-Pain fans just gotta deal with it.

"T-Wayne" the album's been in the works since 2009, when the Houston rapper was 18. He went on to blow up in 2015 when his hit reached #9 on Billboard.

5/19/2017 6:26 PM PDT

Pippa Middleton's wedding is hours away, and by the looks of it ... she'll be harder to get to this weekend than Queen Elizabeth.

Security at the Middleton estate is beefed up big time for Saturday's wedding at St. Mark's Church in Berkshire. Surveillance vans, security cameras, and scores of police officers are on the scene.

Although Pippa's wedding to James Matthews -- a millionaire hedge fund manager -- isn't expected to be the worldwide spectacle as her sister's in 2011, it's still getting the royal treatment.

And let's not forget why -- Pippas butt stole the show at Will and Kate's wedding. Ahh, good times!

Justin Bieber Back On Cavs Bandwagon ... Done With Dubs?

5/19/2017 1:15 PM PDT

ALL ABOARD!! Justin Bieber's back on the Cleveland Cavs bandwagon! 

Case in point: his concert in Cape Town, South Africa a couple nights ago -- where he was rocking a pair of Cavaliers throwback shorts.

If you'll recall, the Biebs was decked out in Golden State Warriors gear back in March ... but also wore a custom LeBron James jersey at a show in Cleveland last year. You know ... the same gig where he predicted LBJ would bring home a championship.

No word on who JB’s picking to win this year ... or who he’s rooting for if and when the Cavs meet the Dubs in the Finals.

EXCLUSIVE

Questlove and "Jersey Shore" alum Pauly D are teaming up to make sure a PA high school prom is lit like Vegas on a Saturday night because they're BOTH hitting the decks.

Pennsbury High is known for throwing insane proms, earning them the label ... Best Prom Night in America. John Mayer and rapper Asher Roth have both performed in the past.

PHS had to scramble to find a replacement for The Roots drummer/DJ after he backed out of this Saturday's prom due to "technology concerns." That's when DJ Pauly D swooped in to save the day. We're told PD is flying in from Vegas Saturday morning to put on the show.

Questlove then backpedaled and said he'd do it after backlash from the relentless students. Who says high school peer pressure doesn't work?

Bottom line ... they've got 2 celeb DJs! BONUS!!
