Kanye West Surprises John Monopoly ... Brand New Bday Lambo!!!

Exclusive

What do you get a guy for his birthday when his name literally reminds you of moneybags? If you're Kanye West ... you go big, black and Italian.

Ye blew the doors off all birthday surprises when he showed up to his former manager John Monopoly's party at Delilah in WeHo Wednesday night with a brand new luxury ride fresh off the lot -- a customized 2019 Lamborghini SUV.

NOT-SO-ANONYMOUS GIFT
TMZ.com

John told us the gift was from a "very good guy" and brother of his with whom he goes back 30 years. He's coy about it, never dropping a name, but it was pretty easy to figure out. Monopoly discovered West and served as his manager for his first 3 albums.

We also got a pic of Kanye after he made the special delivery to confirm the poorly kept secret.

We're told the customized SUV with the matte-black paint job goes for around $300k ... and John says he didn't even see it coming.

BTW -- Monopoly's bday bash was also a lot of fun on the inside of the club in the private VIP section. Along with Kanye, we're told rapper Cam'ron, fashion designer Don C and Jacob York were there.

Happy birthday, John!!!

Kylie Jenner's about to take off with a private jet full of family and close friends to begin her birthday celebration, and "hubby" Travis Scott is joining the festivities ... TMZ has learned.

Kylie and Travis will be celebrating her 22nd birthday off the coast of Italy, and it's gonna be a full flight over there Tuesday afternoon. Our Kardashian-Jenner sources tell us Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble will be on board along with Kylie's assistant, Victoria, and her pals, Stassi Karanikolaou and Yris Palmer.

Never one to miss a party ... we're told Scott Disick and his GF, Sofia Richie, will also be on the flight. As for where they're all headed -- TMZ broke the story, Kylie will ring in 22 on the $250 million megayacht, "Tranquility."

The ship comes with a staff of 29 and every possible amenity you can imagine: sauna, helipad, theater, swimming pool and even a beauty salon.

The super-dinghy normally rents for $1.2 million per week.

Interestingly, none of Kylie's sisters are on the flight tomorrow -- but remember, Kourtney's been vacationing in Europe since last week. Seems likely she'll join the party. As for the other sisters, they travel at the drop of a dime, so stay tuned.

This is how BILLIONAIRES turn 22 ... wheels up, then anchors aweigh!

'Ghostbusters' We Got a Call ... In Canada!!!

There's something strange in this neighborhood ... because the iconic 'Ghostbusters' car just rolled up in Canada!!!

We've gotten our hands on some super cool pics from the set of the upcoming "Ghostbusters 2020" movie ... the famous Ghostbusters Ecto-1 car was spotted Thursday on the streets of Alberta, where filming is in full swing.

The new 'Ghostbusters' have been shooting scenes in the small town of Crossfield ... and our sources say most of the filming is going down at a school and a Chinese restaurant downtown. Never know where ghosts are gonna pop up!

Seems the 'Ghostbusters' have a great mechanic ... the Ecto-1 has been helping them investigate and capture ghosts since the first flick came out way back in 1984!

Paul Rudd, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard and Carrie Coon are starring in the franchise's latest installment, which is a direct sequel to the OG movie and 1989's "Ghostbusters II." We know what your're thinking, and it's a no. No Bill Murray sightings yet, as he's rumored to make a return.

We're told filming in Crossfield is getting set to wrap ... so the Ecto-1 will be on the move again. Be on the lookout!

If you looked up over the English Channel Sunday you might have seen what looked like a flying skateboard, and the dude who was riding it just broke a record!

French inventor Franky Zapata traveled nearly 22 miles, 60 feet in the air, to become the first person ever to use a flyboard to traverse the English Channel.

Zapata dissolved into tears after he landed, immodestly saying he didn't know how big a deal it was and whether it would go in the history books.

He failed last week to cross the Channel, but second time was a charm.

The flyboard is powered by a kerosene-filled backpack, and he said his greatest challenge was changing backpacks mid-flight. But, he did!

Lil Uzi Vert Happy 25th Bday to Me ... I Got Mayweather's Bugatti!!!

Lil Uzi Vert broke the bank celebrating 25 years of life ... throwing a lavish birthday party in NYC and dropping over a million bucks for a luxury car that used to belong to Floyd Mayweather!!!

The Philly rapper pulled out all the stops Wednesday night for his bday bash ... partying the night away with celeb friends and tons of smokin' hot babes at Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge.

Jordyn Woods, Wale, Gunna, Casanova, Bernice Burgos, Pop Smoke, Shiggy, DJ Clue and a bunch of others turned up ... and Uzi was literally looking like a kid in a candy store, because guests chowed down on candy sushi, cotton candy, popcorn and pretzels.

THE SWEET RIDE
TMZ.com

Uzi rolled up to his party in style ... hopping out of Floyd's former Bugatti. We're told Uzi dropped $1.7 million on Mayweather's whip, and he threw down another $20,000 to get the car rush-delivered from Los Angeles.

Lil Uzi bought the 2012 Bugatti Grand Sport from celebrity car broker RD Whittington ... and we're told it's the same car Floyd got before his 2017 superfight against Conor McGregor.

TMZ Sports

The Bugatti looks a little different now ... thanks to some sweet custom work by CarEffex, which tricked it out with a $10k custom wrap.

BTW ... when Floyd first copped the Bugatti, he threw down $3.3 MILLION. So, Uzi got a steal.

Back to the party ... Lil Uzi Vert guzzled champagne and there were Uzi-themed cocktails, courtesy of D'usse. He cut into a birthday cake decorated in diamonds and dollar bills -- the party theme was "Dripping Green & Diamonds."

Speaking of diamonds ... as you can see in the pics, Uzi was rocking tons of new ice from celeb jeweler Eliantte. Gotta have that bday bling!

And, if Uzi's feeling hungover today ... celeb jeweler Alex Todd gave him 100 blunts and vape cartridges from his Saucey cannabis line, which should come in handy.

Brad Pitt 3-Point Turn Not on Point ... On 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' Set

Exclusive
CAR TROUBLE
TMZ.com

Brad Pitt STRUGGLED valiantly to make a 3-point turn while he filmed a scene in Quentin Tarantino's new movie ... and, gotta say -- he failed miserably!!!

Brad is behind the wheel of a 1960 Karmann Ghia roadster -- an awesome car back in the day.  Brad was trying to 3-point it on a narrow, Bev. Hills road, with little success as he filmed "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood."

The vid was shot last September ... just a few houses down from the home where Sharon Tate was brutally murdered in 1969 by Manson Family members. The streets in the neighborhood are mostly narrow and scary at night.

The flick opened up this weekend ... and there was already a minor hiccup in promoting the project on a major billboard in Los Angeles.

The vehicle situation brings to mind Mike Myers' infamous U-turn scene in 'Austin Powers.' So, finally something Brad CAN'T do.

Exclusive
BACHELOR BANGED UP
TMZ.com

TMZ has the police video from 'Bachelorette' contestant Tyler Cameron's Florida car crash ... and dude's putting the "body" in body cam footage!!!

It all went down back in May, when 26-year-old Tyler rear-ended a 2014 Ford Pickup while driving his giant 2005 Excursion in Jupiter, Florida.

The crash caused a chain reaction with the Ford smashing into a 3rd car, which was being driven by a pregnant woman.

Cops responded to the scene ... and, as you can see in the footage, they were greeted by a bloodied and beautiful Tyler C. who was walking around the area with his shirt wide open.

Unclear why Tyler decided to pop his top ... but we're not complaining.

Don't worry, nobody was seriously injured -- including the pregnant woman. Tyler did have a small cut on his forehead, but he'll be fine. In fact, the scar might even up the sex appeal!!!

Tyler's mother also raced to the scene to check on her son. You can see her consoling the reality star as his sweaty, chiseled abs glisten in the sun.

As for the crash, Tyler says traffic stopped unexpectedly and even though he slammed on his brakes, his car is so big he couldn't keep the Excursion from hitting the car in front of him.

DETAILING THE ACCIDENT
TMZ.com

Tyler was cited for careless driving. He's due in court next month.

BTW ... Tyler is one of the 3 finalists on "The Bachelorette" and will make his final pitch to Hannah Brown on the 2-part finale, which airs next week.

He's definitely become a fan favorite on the show -- and he's become so popular, Gigi Hadid decided to follow him on Instagram.

Tracy Morgan Bugatti Reborn ... Just Like New!!!

Shutterstock Premier

Take 2! Tracy Morgan is back in his precious Bugatti ... the one he got into a car accident with last month, and it looks as good as new -- which raises some financial questions. 

The comedian and 'Last O.G.' actor was rolling around NYC Monday in what appears to be the same luxury sports car that got slammed in Manhattan ... moments after he drove it off the lot. We broke the story, the repairs -- which didn't seem major to the eye -- were gonna cost upwards of $32k!!! The question now ... who the heck paid for this???

BUSTED BUGATTI
TMZ.com

When the accident happened, NYPD told us the fender bender appeared to be the other driver's fault. If in fact it was ... her insurance would typically cover the damage. However, it's not everyday you hit a $2 million car, and it's unclear if the other driver had that much coverage. 

It's also possible, Tracy's insurance covered it but what's most likely is both insurance companies are slugging it out. 

Bottom line for Tracy ... he can get back to flaunting his whip around town.

Oh, and just to jog your memory on what he was dealing with on his $2 million whip ... here's a trip down deductible lane. Drive safe, folks!

Tyrese I'm Leaving Voltron Motors ... And $elling My Custom Jeep!!!

Exclusive
TMZ

Tyrese's former whip is hitting the market ... he's looking to unload a tricked-out Jeep Wrangler on his way out the door from Voltron Motors, the company that pimped his ride.

Tyrese cofounded Voltron Motors back in 2016 after investing in the customizing co. that did some sharp work on 2 Jeeps for "Fast and Furious 8." After he came on board, the company souped up a Jeep Wrangler with all kinds of bells and whistles for its new honcho.

Now that Tyrese is leaving VM, he's selling that super sick set of wheels for a cool $109,000.

A normal 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport woulda cost ya a mere $30k or so -- but Tyrese's Voltron Rebel Jeep would make Paul Walker proud. It's an absolute beast, with a supercharged V6 engine producing an estimated 325 horse power and 300 foot-pounds of torque!!!

It's got a custom matte white exterior, a lift kit, rhino rack, two-piece rebel sportback hardtop, GD3 Grid off-road wheels, power running boards, front trac bar and a Fab Fours grill, fender and bumper.

The interior is pretty badass too ... a custom suede headliner and a bumping sound system featuring a 500-watt subwoofer amplifier to blow out your ears, and anyone nearby too.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... there's no bad blood between Tyrese and Volton Motors. He's only leaving because he wants to put his time and his money into Voltron Entertainment, where he'll produce and release films.

His loss, your gain ... if ya got $100k or so burning a hole in your pocket.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Niece Uninjured After Horrifying Crash ... At Race Track

Breaking News

Scary moment at the race track Tuesday ... Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s 18-year-old niece was involved in a horrific crash -- but miraculously escaped uninjured!!

It all went down at a USAC Racing event at Red Dirt Raceway in Oklahoma ... where Karsyn Elledge -- whose mom, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, is Jr.'s older sister -- flipped her sprint car multiple times over a barrier and fencing.

Elledge was coming down turn 3 at the track when she lost control ... causing her car to go airborne and tumble several yards OVER a wall before coming to a stop.

The video is crazy ... but, somehow, Elledge -- whose goal is to follow in her family's famous racing footsteps -- was able to walk away from the wreck under her own power.

"Tonight I am so very thankful that all my safety equipment did it's job & that my team built a safe car," Elledge wrote after the crash ... "Thank you to everyone who's reach out, I am sore, but most hurt is my pride."

It's great news ... seeing as the incident hits WAY too close to home for Earnhardt racing fans. Remember, it was just 18 years ago that Dale Sr. tragically passed away in a wreck at Daytona International Speedway.

For her part, Sr.'s daughter sure seemed happy Elledge walked from the crash just fine, writing, "[Karsyn] is ok, shaken up as you can imagine. Thanks for everyone checking on her and being concerned!"

Ray J Papa's Got a Brand New 'Stang ... Late Father's Day Gift!!!

Exclusive
TMZ

Ray J's Father's Day gift is definitely a little late, but also definitely worth the wait -- a modern black stallion he can now add to his impressive car collection.

We're told Ray J's wife, Princess Love, hit up the crew over at Pazi Performance Auto Body Shop & Customization in Burbank and had them customize this drop-dead-gorgeous Ford Mustang.

The initial plan was to give it to Ray J on Father's Day but this kinda precision design takes time -- which is why Ray J had it delivered to him just days ago. Goes without saying, but we're told Ray J had that "giddy up" look on his face when he got his first glimpse at the $125k ride.

The whip has a bad ass matte black finish and it's fitted with airlift sports suspension, custom rims from BC Forged and low-pro tires. The rims alone are at least a grand apiece!

Check out the pics ... the windows might be tinted but everyone will know it's Ray J riding in style thanks to his company's logo on the doors. If he wants to stay incognito without sacrificing style ... he can always fall back on his Maybach or Navigator.

Ya gotta feel for the guy.

11:13 AM PT -- Fortunately for Blueface, his run-in with cops appears to have been brief and relatively uneventful. TMZ has obtained further video of Blueface's traffic stop, and it looks like he was sitting curbside for a brief amount of time before cops un-cuffed him and cut him loose.

Catch and Release
TMZ.com

Blueface is not having a great start to his weekend -- cops pulled him over in his luxury sports car and apparently slapped handcuffs on him ... and we got video as it was going down.

The "Thotiana" rapper was pulled over Friday afternoon in his black Porsche. TMZ obtained this video of Blueface sitting on the curb with his hands behind his back.

TMZ

Law enforcement tells us Blueface was pulled over initially for allegedly speeding, tinted windows, and didn't have plates on his new car. 

We're told he was detained in cuffs due to the fact he was speeding through a residential area. However, after talking to him they determined no crime was committed and let him go. No ticket ... just a warning. 

BEFORE THE TRAFFIC STOP
@ bluefacebleedem

Blueface seemed to be enjoying his joy ride before 5-0 put a stop to his fun -- he posted a series of videos of himself vibin' to music in his whip. Of course, driving and using your cell phone is a big no-no too. It's somebody's lucky day.  

He's scheduled to headline a concert Friday night in Sacramento at the Ace of Spades ... and our sources say he's already at the airport heading to the gig.

Wladimir Klitschko Rescued from Sea After Yacht Catches Fire In Spain

Breaking News
THE RESCUE

Wladimir Klitschko and his family were SAVED by emergency responders in Spain on Monday -- after the luxury yacht they were traveling on, caught fire at sea!!

The rescue was all captured on video ... as firefighters and other emergency workers rushed to the boat off the coast of Mallorca around 2 AM and sprayed fire-suppressing foam on the boat.

"The boat was on fire, we're hanging out outside," the former boxing champ says on the dramatic video ... "We're in the sea getting rescued from the Mallorcan/Spanish fire department."

The yacht crew had already controlled the fire by the time rescuers showed up -- so responders mostly did some thorough inspection, made sure the fire was out ... and then towed the ship to port.

But, during the tow, smoke began to billow out of the engine room -- so the rest of the crew was evacuated to a rescue ship.

After the incident, 43-year-old Klitschko tweeted about the rescue ... saying, "Be careful what you wish for: fate took my wish for "some #adrenalin" a bit too literally and our boat-trip Sunday night ended up in our boat #igniting and family & friends being evacuated by coast guard and fire rescue-team."

"No worries: we are all fine!"

Of course, Wlad is boxing legend ... a 64-5 record as a pro but retired in 2017 after losses to Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.
