Kanye West Hit the Wrong Twin After Bianca Run-In ... Famous Restaurateurs

The guy Kanye West allegedly punched in the face was one half of a set of twins who are big shots in the restaurant scene here in L.A. -- and we're told he hit the wrong one.

Eyewitnesses who were on the scene Wednesday morning at the Chateau Marmont hotel tell TMZ that what Kanye's team said about what happened -- namely, Bianca herself had been assaulted by the man who ran into her -- is totally off base and simply not accurate.

Here's what our sources tell us about how this went down, from their perspective ... a man accidentally bumped into Bianca in the hotel lobby, which they say was busy at the time. We're told it happened quickly, and the man went on about his way.


O.J. Simpson's Bank of America credit card has hit the auction block ... and let's just say the seller is banking on it raking in some serious cash.

Jonathan Lepore is selling the business account card over at Goldin Auctions ... telling TMZ he snagged the piece of plastic, which expired in 2023, on eBay last summer for a steal at $70, adding it to his trove of sports memorabilia.

Later, Jonathan planned to gift the card to his pal's dad, who apparently used to chill with O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson in the Hamptons during the '80s and early '90s.

Patrick & Brittany Mahomes Trolled By Fans on Vacation ... Raider Nation Out in Cabo!!!

Date Night

TMZ obtained video of the pair grabbing a bite at Rosa Negra -- a luxury Latin restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico -- Thursday night, and it looked like one hot date night for the couple, sans any kids.

Eyewitnesses say the couple hung out for about two hours before dipping out ... and, that's when they got heckled by some fans of an opposing team ... with some goons booing and hissing them, not to mention shouting "RAIDERS" to Patty and Brit as they bounced.


Zoe Saldana is saying goodbye to her swanky Beverly Hills pad and she's aiming to cash in big time ... listing it for a small fortune (if you're loaded, that is).

Zoe bought the place at the time from Kimora Lee Simmons, and it's clearly appreciated in value since then.

Donald Trump Trial Political Manifesto Surfaces For Man Who Set Himself on Fire

A manifesto has surfaced that's being attributed to the man who set himself on fire -- and if it's legit, which it certainly seems to be, then the guy's motivation was purely political.

The man in question has been ID'd as Max Azzarello -- and he appears to have his own Substack page called The Ponzi Papers ... with his latest post titled "I have set myself on fire outside the Trump Trial."

The first lines are telling, and you can clearly make out that this man is very anti-governmental. He writes, "My name is Max Azzarello, and I am an investigative researcher who has set himself on fire outside of the Trump trial in Manhattan. This extreme act of protest is to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery."
