1/21/2019 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Antonio Brown's business is definitely still boomin' in the off-season ... 'cause the NFL superstar just copped an insane amount of jewelry worth HALF A MILLION DOLLARS!!

You already know the Steelers receiver LOVES his diamonds ... but the dude keeps topping himself ... hittin' up his good friend Gabriel the Jeweler for the massive order:

-- Richard Mille watch ($190k value)

-- 2 more G.O.A.T. rings ($20k value each. Remember, he already had one)

-- 5-carat diamond earrings (50k value)

-- An insane diamond chain ($220k value).

Add all that up, and you have a haul worth a whoppin' $500k!!

No word on how much coin A.B. actually dropped ... but the dude's in a 4-year, $68 million contract ... so he can afford to do this a LOT if he wants.

Boomin', indeed.

A Boogie wit da Hoodie Streaming > Sales Albums are a Dead Duck

1/17/2019 7:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A Boogie wit da Hoodie's on a victory lap -- celebrating his #1 album by buying houses and trucks for his family and pounds of jewelry for himself -- and he says any artist who's relying on selling albums anymore is just plain stupid.

The rapper's riding high right now atop the Billboard charts -- despite selling just 823 physical records -- and when we got him leaving Rockefeller Center in NYC Wednesday night ... he makes it pretty clear the low sales are now totally irrelevant.

A Boogie tells us streaming's the new king of the music biz, and with his new album, "Hoodie SZN," getting 83 MILLION streams last week ... he's got the crown.

There's more, though ... the hip-hop artist -- whose real name is Artist, btw -- says he's got new music coming out with Tekashi 6ix9ine soon, along with a music vid for his track "Swervin'" featuring 69.

That's sure to bring in a lot more streams ... and a lot more bling.

"F**k sales," indeed.

Ariana Grande I'm Dropping '7 Rings' ... But My Friends Got 7 Rings Too!!!

1/16/2019 4:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" drops Friday ... and we're told Ariana and Co. expect the song will become an anthem for female empowerment ... with more than a mention of retail therapy as a cure for breakups.

Sources involved in the recording say "7 Rings" wasn't just a random song title ... the name was inspired by something that happened shortly after her breakup with Pete Davidson. Ariana went out with her girls on a shopping spree, meandered into a jewelry store and bought 7 engagement rings for her friends. 

One verse goes like this ... 

       Whoever said money can't solve your problems

       Must not have had enough money to solve 'em

The lyrics also reference her breakups -- just like "Thank U, Next" 

"7 Rings" is Ariana's first single since releasing "Thank U, Next" ... and her people think the new song will do at least as well as its predecessor. 

We're told the song will also feature a new music video.

EXCLUSIVE

Amari Cooper expects to be in Dallas for a LONG time ... at least, that's what it looks like after the dude invested in a sick, diamond Cowboys jersey with his name and number on it!!

Amari's team just got knocked out of the playoffs by the Rams, but now the dude can still rep his team in the off-season ... courtesy of the solid piece made up of 40 carats of diamonds!!

TMZ Sports has learned ... A.C. hit up Gabriel the Jeweler -- the go-to guy for huge stars like Antonio Brown, OBJ and Jarvis Landry -- earlier this month to solidify his spot with America's team.

FYI --Cooper's expected to sign an extension with Dallas this offseason ... and after the production he's put up, the dude is expected to cash in with a fat, new deal before the end of next season.

We're told the jersey -- valued at $65k -- was part of Cooper's recent bling haul, complete with a 45-carat Cuban chain and 15-carat bracelet ... worth $140k total!!

It's good to be rich. But, it's good to be richer. Get that money, Cooper!!

Chris Pratt, Katherine Schwarzenegger She Said Yes!!! Flashes New Bling in Rain

1/14/2019 8:32 AM PST

12:33 PM PT -- Katherine is showing off her engagement ring after grabbing breakfast Monday with her younger sister, Christina ... check out that rock on her ring finger!  

8:32 AM PT -- It appears Anna Faris is excited for the new couple too, commenting, "I'm so happy for you both!! Congratulations!"Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are engaged!!!

Chris posted this Monday AM ... "Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I'm thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!"  

All the signs have been there for a few months ... he's been hanging with her entire fam, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. Chris, Katherine, Maria and Patrick Schwarzenegger were all just in Mexico together.

It was a super fast romance ... they met only last June, apparently through Maria. They were almost immediately inseparable, spending lots of time with Chris' 6-year-old son, Jack.

Chris and Anna Faris settled their divorce late last year. They separated in August 2017 after 8 years of marriage.

No word on when they're tying the knot.

So, Chris is going to become part of the Kennedy klan. Maria's mom, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, was the sister of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Ted Kennedy.

Congrats!!!

Floyd Mayweather Flaunts 41 Expensive Watches ... 'This One Cost $18 Mil'

1/10/2019 5:56 AM PST
Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather has one helluva watch collection -- 41 time pieces in total -- including a crown jewel, the $18 million "One and Only."

Seems Floyd was just bored on Wednesday and felt like stuntin' on all of us normies -- so he broke out the briefcases with his super expensive man jewelry ... and showed it all off. 

"When I go on pay-cation for 30 days," Floyd said ... "I take 30 watches with me."

"But, you know what, if we add 10 more days, I take 10 more watches," he explained while opening a 2nd case. 

And, then the big daddy ... 

"But then, I say 'f*ck it. If I wanna bring out the one and only, then I'll take out the watch that costs $18 million."

The watch is technically called "The Billionaire Watch" -- made by Jacob & Co. back in 2015, it features 239 emerald-cut baguette diamond stones, each weighing up to 3 carats.

Floyd says he bought the watch last summer from a Japanese jeweler named Tadashi Fukushima -- and claimed he'd never buy any jewelry from anyone else ever again. 

But, if he sees the right watch somewhere else ... 

Floyd has made a ton of money during his pro boxing career -- $300 mil to fight Pacquiao, $300 mil to fight McGregor ... and $9 mil to fight Tenshin Nasukawa

So yeah, he should be able to afford a few watches. 

Anthony Anderson Drops Diamond in Drain ... Ghetto MacGyver to the Rescue!!!

1/9/2019 9:14 AM PST

Anthony Anderson really coulda used a Swiss Army Knife after dropping a diamond in a shower drain, but since he dubbed himself "Ghetto MacGyver" ... Q-tips, dental floss and a broken comb were all he needed for the mission.

The "Black-ish" star is in Rome, where he perfectly executed "Operation Save Diamond Earring" at the Waldorf Astoria Resort. After his diamond earring went down the drain, he recorded the whole rescue effort.

You gotta watch the video ... Anthony was kinda pissed there were no wire hangers in the room to use during the operation -- but he made due with everything else he could find in the bathroom.

Anthony said he wanted the whole mission on video just in case it failed -- for insurance purposes -- but more than anything it's just entertaining to watch him try to keep a steady hand. Anyone remember playing Operation?  

Anthony captioned the video, "I'm naked, wet and soapy! I did the best I could with two Q tips, a comb and dental floss to save my diamond." He included #justakidfromcompton #ghettomcgyver #diamondsareforever #adventuresinrome #rome.

Diamonds. They're not only a girl's best friend!

Exclusive Details

Derrick Henry got his O-linemen the ultimate "thank you for blocking for me" present this week ... CUSTOM DIAMOND CHAINS, BABY!!!

The former Heisman Trophy winner ran all over the Jaguars a couple weeks ago ... trouncing Jacksonville for 238 rushing yards AND four touchdowns.

In fact ... dude had 99-yard run in the game that sent the NFL world into a frenzy!!!!

Henry's yards were the most-ever in Titans history ... and his 4 scores tied the franchise mark -- so, as a thank you to his O-line for blocking for him ... he got them some sick drip this week.

We're told Henry got the chains -- which feature a gold 238 -- for all five of the O-linemen who started for the team during the Week 14 romp.

Yeah, we didn't think it was possible either ... but Taylor Lewan's wardrobe just got THAT MUCH more swaggy.

Demi Lovato New BF Makes Me Smile a Lot!!! Aspen Doesn't Hurt Either

1/2/2019 9:35 AM PST

Demi Lovato looked almost angelic while ringing in the New Year, clearly sticking to her new battle cry -- to never take another day for granted.

The singer and her BF, Henry Levy, celebrated the New Year in Aspen. She was all smiles and dressed to the nines -- flowy, long white fur coat (we know, can't tell if it's real or faux) with boots and a very color-poppin' Hermes Birkin bag.

Demi's jewelry choices might also raise eyebrows -- she's rocking a diamond ring on her left ring finger -- y'know, that one. It doesn't look very engagement-y, and the relationship is only a couple months old -- but stranger things have happened.

In any event, it's clear Demi's leaving her tumultuous 2018 in the rearview mirror by looking like a million bucks in 2019.
