Rapper Pop Smoke, who features on Travis Scott's new album, "Jackboys," is taking that title too far, according to federal agents who busted him for allegedly transporting a stolen Rolls-Royce.

According to court docs, Pop Smoke was arrested Friday morning in New York on a federal charge of interstate transport of a stolen vehicle ... specifically a 2019 Rolls-Royce Wraith from Cali.

Law enforcement sources tell us Pop Smoke met the Rolls-Royce's owner in November at an L.A. recording studio, and they entered into a verbal agreement for Pop Smoke to use the car in an upcoming music video. In exchange, he would give the owner VIP treatment at a future show.

Our sources say the car's owner told Pop Smoke to return the car the next day. When that didn't happen, the owner tracked the car to Arizona using GPS, and then reported it stolen.

Exclusive
TMZ.com

New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was arrested Saturday night after allegedly jumping on the hood of someone's Mercedes ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down this way ... Julian was in Bev Hills walking around at about 9 PM when for some unknown reason he hopped up on the car, causing damage.

Impressive, considering the 33-year-old reportedly needs surgery on his left knee during the offseason.

The bad news for Julian ... cops were in the area working a robbery case when someone flagged them down and gave them the lowdown.

Edelman was arrested, cited for misdemeanor vandalism and released. He left with his friends.

Our law enforcement sources say it was apparent to them Julian had been drinking ... which might explain a lot about the incident. He was at dinner earlier in the evening in Bev Hills Cantina FRIDA, along with Paul Pierce and Danny Amendola.

It's true ... but now he's parting with his pimped out whip and it could be yours if you've got $150,000 to spend!

Wentz has decided to sell off his 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Coupe -- which features a SuperCharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT V8 engine.

Barberasautoland.com

If that's too shop-talky for you ... here's what you need to know -- it can do a quarter mile in 9.65 seconds and has a top speed of 199 mph!!!

Unclear when Wentz got the car but it seems he's selling it because his wife's pregnant and they don't feel it's an appropriate family vehicle. Asking price, $149,984.

The good news, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Wentz's AO1 Foundation -- a religious-based charity that helps various groups of people, from special needs children to impoverished communities.

Exclusive

Jenelle Evans' estranged husband, David Eason, is a wanted man in North Carolina ... and it all stems from an allegedly illegal truck-towing incident in 2018.

The embattled former reality TV star was ordered to appear in court Thursday for the case, but he no-showed, so the judge signed a warrant for his arrest ... according to the New Hanover Criminal Court Clerk.

The case centers around an incident that went down way back in the summer of 2018, in which Eason appeared to illegally tow a man's truck. David kinda shot himself in the foot on this one too -- he shared the video Jenelle took of him towing the truck that he claimed had blocked him in a space.

Sources close to the Blink-182 drummer tell us he's decided it's out with the old and in with some new whips, so he's partnering with Barrett-Jackson to auction off 3 cars -- a 1941 Cadillac 62 Series Convertible, plus a 1960 Cadillac Coupe Deville and a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer.

Elon Musk's Mom Tesla's Money Milestone is Nice ... But It's Still NOT My Fave Elon Moment

THAT'S MY BOY!
@LionsShareNews

Elon Musk's mother is keeping it real when it comes to which of her son's achievements makes her most proud, and ya might be surprised ... it's not Tesla.

Maye Musk was out Wednesday in NYC with a huge smile ... and for good reason. Her son's car company just became the highest-valued car company in U.S. history -- with a total market value of nearly $100 billion.

To put that in perspective, that's more than General Motors and Ford combined. A huge accomplishment for sure, but Elon's mom says there's something else on her son's resume she, personally, finds more impressive.

There's plenty to choose from, for sure, although you can be pretty sure it isn't his prowess on a dance floor. Even a mother couldn't back those moves.

THE TESLA TWO-STEP

No, Maye's choice is something we'd all have to look up to ... we think. Even if you disagree, ya gotta love her energy in this clip.

Fun facts: Maye was a Miss South Africa finalist in 1969 and has modeled for tons of magazine covers, Revlon ads, and even appeared in Beyonce's "Haunted" music video.

Elon Musk Dancing Machine at New Tesla Plant ... You Like This, China??!!

THE TESLA TWO-STEP

Here's Elon Musk getting super loose on the floor -- not at a nightclub, but for the opening of his new factory in China -- and his moves scream ... let's sell some Model 3s, baby!!!

The Tesla honcho was in Shanghai Tuesday celebrating the launch of Tesla's manufacturing plant, and he was apparently so amped he just couldn't resist busting out his best dance.

Ya gotta see Elon's bag of tricks ... he slips off his jacket and tosses it aside before doing the ol' walk like an Egyptian (s/o to The Bangles). Ya might've seen some of his other moves ... in a retirement home.

Still, the crowd ate it up -- clapping, cheering and encouraging him to keep it moving ... keep his body moving.

SHATTERING EXPECTATIONS
Tesla

Looks like Elon's learned his lesson from that unintentionally hysterical Cybertruck launch -- dance more, throw metal balls less. It's just more fun.

Diddy & Future Jet Ski Buddies ... No Bad Blood Over Lori Harvey

Diddy and Future are out to prove friends who jet ski together stick together ... even if one of them is dating the other's ex.

The hip-hop stars tore it up on the water Thursday as they enjoyed a sunny Miami afternoon on jet skis to start the year off right. DJ Khaled and Meek Mill also joined in on the fun.

Pretty typical stuff for a group of rich guys, but what's interesting here is Future's now dating Steve Harvey's daughter, Lori ... who was romantically linked to Diddy just this past summer.

Doesn't appear to be an issue at all between the rappers, though ... and the mystery hot chick riding behind Diddy might be one of the reasons why.

As for Future and Lori ... the 2 sparked dating rumors in November when she attended his bday party in Atlanta, and confirmed it recently. Lori traveled to Nigeria last weekend for Future's first headline concert in Africa, and eagle-eyed fans noticed the shoes he was wearing were also in the background of a mirror selfie snapped by Lori.

They were together again in Vegas for New Year's Eve ... and all signs point to Diddy's stamp of approval for 2020.

In case you missed it ... rumors are swirling about Ozzy's supposedly declining health, but the couple looked and sounded happy when they ran into our TMZ Celebrity Tour guide.

Ozzy's rocking some shades and a pretty stylish cane, and even though he doesn't say much, he's still moving around in his fancy car ... no "Weekend at Bernie's" stunts here.

Oh and get this ... Sharon drops some hints on the release date of Ozzy's first solo album in 10 years, "Ordinary Man," and a new tour.

Don't write off the Prince of Darkness just yet!!!

'Bad News Bears' Star Jeffrey Davies Learning to Walk and Talk Again ... After Motorcycle Crash

Exclusive
Alamy

Jeffrey Davies -- who played Kelly Leak in the 2005 comedy "Bad News Bears" -- is fighting like hell to regain function after a terrifying accident left him nearly paralyzed.

According to law enforcement, Davies was riding a motorcycle close to midnight back in May, when he lost control at the center of an intersection and was thrown from the bike.

Jeffrey's Mom, Kim, says her son was rushed to Orlando Medical Center after suffering a serious head injury that required surgery. During surgery, we're told, doctors had to partially remove Jeffrey's skull to relieve pressure in his brain.

SLOW AND STEADY

It's been over 7 months since the accident but Jeffrey's still in major recovery mode. He's had to learn how to talk and walk. Jeffrey -- the local troublemaker/superstar baseball player in the film starring Billy Bob Thorton -- requires speech and occupational therapy plus tons of medical supplies. Reliable transportation's also an issue since he's confined to a wheelchair.

French Montana I Appreciate Being Alive ... So I Bought Me a $1.5M Bugatti!!!

Exclusive Details
TREAT YOURSELF

French Montana has lots to celebrate ... he's lucky to be alive after his big hospital scare, so what better way to show gratitude than to buy yourself a $1.5 million whip!!!

French got a brand new blue Bugatti delivered to his pad in Vegas Sunday night. We're told it was transported by Wires Only Luxury Car Dealer in L.A. ... using a special truck to protect it from scratches or other damage.

Our sources say French wanted the Bugatti in time for New Year's Eve to celebrate the year ahead and, presumably, the fact that he ended the year on 2 feet.

TMZ broke the story ... French was hospitalized in November after experiencing intense stomach pain and an elevated heart rate. He spent nearly 2 weeks in the hospital -- mostly in the ICU -- before being released.

While our French sources say doctors could never nail down a cause, French says he believes the medical emergency was caused by partying way too hard -- 4 countries in 4 days.

The good news for French. His new album "Montana" dropped just days after he got out of the hospital ... so he had plenty to listen to during his recovery.

MMA's Jordan Johnson Big Plans for $1 Million Prize!!! ... I'm Buyin' a Kia!

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY
TMZSports.com

What would you do if someone handed you a check for $1 MILLION!?!?!? New Ferrari? Big ass mansion? Pet tiger?

MMA fighter Jordan Johnson has MUCH different plans if he wins the big PFL $1 million prize fight on New Year's Eve ... dude says he wants a Kia!

The 31-year-old light heavyweight fought his way into the championship match against Emiliano Sordi -- where the winner takes home that 7-figure payday. Not bad.

Johnson says he ain't trying to count his chickens before they hatch ... but he'd be lying if he said he hadn't given some thought about how to spend the money.

"Ya know, I'm not gonna make any crazy purchases, but maybe a new car is something we've kinda been talking about."

And the dream ride?!

"I love Kias. We've been talking about the Telluride. But, I just saw the Stinger for the first time the other day. Most people laugh about this, 'You have a million dollar payday and you want to go buy a Kia?'"

Kia

Don't laugh ... the 2020 Telluride MSRP's for about $32k, and was named SUV of the Year by Motor Trend.

Sure, it doesn't go 200 MPH ... but do $300k sports cars hold 8 passengers and have an ungodly amount of cupholders? Nope.

Gotta respect the fiscal responsibility.

We got Khaled on Fifth Avenue, where he was proudly showing off his new wheels ... and ya gotta see his tricked out ride.

The custom whip is a 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan ... and Khaled's trusted car customizer Will Castro of Unique Rides tells us the $500k car comes with another $25k in special features.

As you can see ... the Rolls is sitting on custom 24-inch Forgiato rims with Nitto Tires, with red "RR" accents matching the red interior.

Khaled says he's gonna be driving around Miami in his new truck, and Will tells us it's got specially tinted windows for privacy and to keep Khaled cool from the South Florida heat.

Check out the car tour ... Khaled works hard and plays harder.

Marc Anthony $300k to Salvage Sunken Yacht!!! U.S. Gov't Fronting the Tab

Exclusive
Getty/City Of Miami Fire

Marc Anthony's burned out yacht is posing a significant danger to Miami's coastal waters -- so the federal government's stepping in to assist ... but it ain't gonna be cheap.

As you know, Marc's $7 million yacht, the Andiamo, burst into flames Wednesday night in a Miami marina, and despite valiant efforts ... the vessel went under. It's still resting mostly submerged, and it will until divers tackle the issue of fuel leaks.

The U.S. Coast Guard tells TMZ ... the government is dipping into something called the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to pay for the divers. We're told they're inspecting the wreckage to figure out the best way to clear the engines and tanks.

After the fuel clean up, another company will tow Marc's baby to dry dock where investigators can determine what caused the fire. Officials estimate the job will cost about $300,000 -- that's how much they pulled from the fund.

@CityofMiamiFire

Now, before ya fire off an angry email to Congress ... the feds only front that $300k.

We're told the government will seek reimbursement from Marc, or more likely, his insurance company, once the job is done. So, if you need to know ... taxpayers will NOT be paying to raise his yacht.

Lil Pump Corn Dogs For All These People!!! Feeds Homeless in L.A.

Lil Pump is spreading holiday cheer for the people who need it most ... one corn dog at a time.

The rapper was out in Los Angeles Wednesday, hooking up the homeless with hot meals, cold drinks and warm clothes for the winter.

Lil Pump hit the streets of Skid Row, serving up corn dogs, turkey dogs, cheese dogs, french fries and lemonade ... and passing out jackets, pants and socks to 600 people.

Pump teamed up with a couple of companies for the good deed ... joining forces with My Friends House Foundation, Hot Dog on a Stick and his buddy, RD Whittington, the owner of luxury celeb car company Wires Only, who dropped $7,000 on the charity event.

If the carnival fare sounds different as far as givebacks go ... that's because we're told Lil Pump and RD wanted to pass out food that was nontraditional, so mission accomplished there.

Lil Pump's known for living large, so it's nice to see him giving back to the community.
