Justin Beiber Another day, another ridiculously pricey drama for Justin Bieber. The 19-year-old is seemingly always in the headlines for driving-related snafus, and obviously today is no different. It's being reported that last night, the Biebs committed a major no-no when he was cruising around Hollywood in his $230,000 white Ferrari-the same one he allegedly terrorized his swanky gated community in Calabasas in.

According to reports, he was exiting a comedy show at The Laugh Factory alongside his partner in crime, rapper Lil Twist, at 11:45 p.m. last night. The paparazzi naturally went nuts, and the valet clearly brought around his sleek whip. The duo hopped in and attempted to flee the area, but apparently, a photographer has his leg lodged in between the Ferrari and another parked car-so he was ultimately injured.
Bieber didn't wait around to see the aftermath, and he and

Yacht Let's get one thing straight: The Kennedy clan knows how to party, and that's exactly what they've been doing this past week. Aboard a glamorous luxury yacht named Domani, Maria Shriver cruised the high seas in the South of France alongside her dapper model son Patrick Schwarzenegger and a slew of friends. Notably absent was Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and the star of action classics like "Terminator."

Shriver and Schwarzenegger have been embroiled in a very public split since 2011, when it was revealed that he had a love child with one of their housekeepers. While we've all been waiting for their official divorce announcement, it seems they may actually be reconciling-and what better way to pique the interest of an estranged spouse than with photos of you on a gorgeous yacht looking absolutely amazing at 57-years-old?
And honestly, who wouldn't be jealous of anyone

With that single grab the thief walked away with a staggering $98,000 of jewelry, according to the police.
The brazen theft was captured on a surveillance video. A Tiffany's employee is seen placing two diamond necklaces on top of a black velvet cloth on a display case, as the potential buyer paces in front.
Seconds later, the man swipes both necklaces, and just walks out the revolving front doors.
Interestingly, there have been a string of high profile jewelry thefts in recent weeks. Two major thefts were reported at the Cannes Film Festival, including $1 million worth of jewelry that was stolen from Chopard.

The Extravagant High Chair So much for the longstanding rumors that Beyoncé hates Kim Kardashian! It has previously been reported that Queen Bey turns her nose up at Kardashian, particularly her relationship with Kanye West-a close friend of her hubby Jay-Z. However, it seems that the two have buried the hatchet-and Beyoncé may even have accepted the sex tape star turned reality TV fixture into her inner circle.

Although Beyoncé was too busy touring the world to make it to Kim's swanky baby shower last weekend, her and Jay-Z sent the expecting couple a very pricey gift. According to The Sunday Mirror, Kim and Kanye now own a $12,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair designed by Carla Monchen. What's more is that it supposedly matches the high chair that Bey and Jay's one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy eats her Gerber Baby Food in. Okay, so Blue Ivy probably doesn't eat

Kylie Jenner's Ride She may only be 15-years-old, but reality starlet Kylie Jenner has some seriously luxe possessions that people three times her age can only dream of owning. One of them is her Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV, which retails for around $125,000-an incredibly pricey sum for a vehicle. This past weekend, she took to social media proclaiming that, she was giving her "G-Wagon a spa day." She then proceeded to get her car a custom matte finish-making it appear extra-shiny for joyrides to the mall and frozen yogurt shop.

While we can't exactly knock Jenner for owning the expensive wheels-she does, after all, make her own money through her famous family's slew of reality shows, not to mention her clothing line with sister Kendall for PacSun-we can definitely scoff at the fact that due to her young age, she can't even drive the damn thing unless she has a licensed driver who is over 18 along with her!

Kanye's Bachelor Pad It looks like Kanye West's New York City days are officially coming to the close, as the 35-year-old rapper, fashion designer, and soon-to-be father has quietly put his SoHo spread on the market for $4.5 million according to Page Six. Although the Soho apartment on West Houston -which was designed by famed minimalist architect Claudio Silvestrin-is for sale, it has not hit the open market and has merely been shown to the city's most prestigious brokers (something that is expected when it comes to selling high-profile celebrity homes).

The fourth-floor apartment, which West bought for $3.14 million in 2007 long before his Kim Kardashian days, features 2,300 square feet of living space, and West had it tricked out to meet his oddly quirky needs. So, steps away from his bed in the master suite is a 9 foot long granite basin that houses a sink (we don't want to know why that's there). Also, at the

Dunham envisions a pasta bar, tropical drinks, and live performances from the likes of Sade and The White Stripes. Her vision for dream wedding dress is equally epic. She wants to wear a white sating dress with torn lace and tulle trim. Also Dunham envisions wearing pearls and a feather headpiece (very Kate Middleton of her).

The Infamous Nail Last week, a rather bizarre-and certainly unique-piece hit the auction block: A black and gold acrylic nail that was worn by Lady Gaga onstage. Naturally, a crew member who was tidying up the stage following her gig in Dublin on her Born This Way Ball tour back in 2012 scooped it up when he noticed it had fallen off the pop star's finger.

The nail was listed on ArtFact.com, which noted that it was designed by nail artist Aya Fukuda. The package also came with a photo of Gaga performing-with one missing fingernail, to prove the piece's authenticity. Initial bids were in the $1,000 range-but The Daily Mail now reports that it has officially sold for a whopping $12,000. Why buy a Birkin when you can have a fingernail?
Obviously, many people think this is freaky. No matter how much you love a celebrity, wanting their nails in your house is a bit overkill. However, Rob Weisberg, the
