Rappers and other celebrities are scrambling to lease homes and rent cars now that "MTV Cribs" is returning more than 20 years after it was canceled.

The original series gave viewers a glimpse into the lifestyle of the rich and famous, including a tour of their homes and fully stocked garages.

Viewers tuned in to see how the other half lived and spent their hard earned millions.

But the show lost some of its luster when it was revealed most of the mansions and cars were leased or rented just for the MTV Cribs cameras.

Word is that MTV did their due diligence to make sure the new season features homes celebrities actually live in.

The upcoming season will feature tours of homes owned or leased by Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross, Big Sean, Christian Siriano, JoJo Siwa, Jordyn Woods, Kathy Griffin, Marsai Martin, Martha Stewart, Rick Ross, Tia Mowry, Tinashe, TJ Lavin and others.

"'Cribs' didn't simply introduce the celeb-reality genre; it created a blueprint for how we engage on social media," said MTV's president of content and chief creative officer, Nina L. Diaz. "We are thrilled to usher in a new era of this iconic franchise for audiences around the world."

MTV Cribs is set to premiere on Aug. 11 on MTV. Check your local listings.

Rapper Big Boi is giving Outkast fans the chance to rent the Atlanta home where the duo recorded some of their biggest hits.

Big Boi is teaming up with Aibnb to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic album ATLIENS.

The six-time Grammy Award winner also listed The Dungeon in honor of Black Music Month.

The hip-hop star is offering three overnight stays at the renovated house known as The Dungeon via Airbnb, with the June and July bookings available on a first come, first served basis.

Airbnb will begin taking bookings on AIrbnb on June 25.

Renters who live in the Atlanta area will also get an added bonus - a ride to and from the custom crib in an Escalade.

Once there, guests will be invited to take a tour of the famed basement, where OutKast and the Goodie Mob, both part of The Dungeon Family collective, created some of their earliest works.

There are gold and platinum plaques on the wall, and they even signed their names on the walls of the makeshift studio.

Other rooms are packed with memorabilia paying homage to Atlanta venues which inspired the music of The Dungeon Family.

There is also a top-of-the-line studio filled with Yamaha hi-fi audio equipment.

The home previously belonged to music producer Rico Wade's mother, but Big Boi purchased it two years ago. He has now teamed up with Airbnb bosses to offer overnight stays for just $25 per night - not including taxes and fees.

As part of the deal, Airbnb officials will make a donation to the Atlanta Public Schools Music Department to expand resources and increase access to music education for young students, reports TMZ.

Rick Ross saves over $1 million per year by mowing the lawn at his sprawling Atlanta area mansion.

The "Money Dance" rapper, who is known for boasting about his lavish spending, owns the massive Fayetteville, Ga. estate once owned by former boxing champ Evander Holyfield.

The 12-bedroom mansion (which sits on 235 manicured acres) was purchased for $5.8 million. It features 109 rooms - including a bowling alley, a private baseball field, and a movie theater (which can accommodate 135 people).

Ross refuses to spend the $1 million annual fee to have landscaping professionals take care of his lawn.

Instead, Ross prefers to take the time to do it himself - even though it takes about five hours to mow 235 acres.

"When I bought the Fayetteville estate, locals would see me walk out of a restaurant and scream, 'You know Holyfield spent $1 million a year to cut the grass?'" he told Forbes magazine.

Ross purchased the most expensive zero-turn lawn mower on the market -- similar to the kind the pros use -- to save money on lawn care expenses.

"So I decided that I was gonna cut my own grass. And that's what I did. I went down to John Deere (manufacturing brand) and asked to see the biggest tractor, the most efficient tractor. I told them I had 200 - plus acres that I wanted to keep cut, and they pointed out the right tractor. I bought it right then and there. I bought the extended attachment on the back that would cut even wider."

"Once I got it back home, I filled it up with gas," he continued.

"I may have sat in the same spot for two hours before I got everything working, but once I got it going, I didn't stop. I cut grass for about five hours."

Ross uses the time on his lawnmower to enjoy a smoke and reflect on his life highs and lows.

"I sit there and have my cannabis rolled up, and, man, I look at the property and can appreciate my struggles and my triumphs, those rough days... It's the smallest thing, but it keeps a smile on my face. So, you know, for anybody who doesn't cut their own grass, I would say take time out every two or three months to cut your grass because it is such a great and peaceful sensation."

A suspect who crashed into Rick Ross' Atlanta area mansion during a high-speed police chase has died in custody.

40-year-old Chaka Stewart led police on a wild chase that ended at the rapper's front door in Fayetteville, Georgia last week.

Stewart was found unresponsive in his jail cell at the Clayton County Jail on Saturday.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation tells TMZ, a guard and a medic who were making the evening rounds noticed Stewart unresponsive in his cell. They attempted Cardiopulmonary resuscitation but were unsuccessful.

Stewart was pronounced dead at the jail. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Stewart was alone in his cell and no foul play is suspected. An autopsy is underway to determine his cause of death.

Stewart's mother, Jacqueline Gordon, confirmed her son is the suspect who crashed outside Rick's 190 room mansion last week. Police say he crashed his truck and was carrying a firearm. He surrendered at gunpoint and was taken into custody.

Gordon says she last spoke to her son Friday. She claims he told her he was being beaten behind bars. It is unclear if he was accusing jail officials or other inmates. He also told her he wasn't allowed to shower and was confined to his cell for 23 hours a day.

Gordon also claims one of the deputies told Stewart he'd never get out of jail. She said Georgia authorities have been ducking her and her inquiries.

The NBA legend listed his 32,683 square foot house on the market in 2012 for $29 million. Despite slashing the price down to $14.8 million, he has yet to receive any offers on the magnificent custom property.

The mansion was being sold fully-furnished, but that furniture is out of date now. He also threw in the customized gate with the Chicago Bulls star's former number, 23.

Rapper Nelly has finally unloaded his decrepit Missouri mansion that sat vacant and in disrepair for two decades.

Nelly secured a buyer for his abandoned mansion, just one week after listing it for sale at the bargain basement price of $600,000.

The "Hot In Herre" rapper listed the spacious six-bedroom, seven-bathroom Wildwood home for just $600,000 on February 11, and by February 18, he had already secured an offer.

It's unclear who the buyer is, but the property has been sitting empty for almost two decades. Nelly initially purchased the home back in 2002 for $2 million in hopes of renovating it and flipping it. But he abandoned the project years ago.

The house, which features a private basketball court, an in-ground infinity pool and a three-car garage, is now an eyesore, with no plumbing and no flooring. But it does boast spectacular unobstructed views of the countryside.

Millions of Americans face eviction when the federally mandated moratorium on evictions expires in March. Former Vogue magazine editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley says he is among them.

Talley, 72, says he's being evicted from his colonial New York mansion in a messy rent battle with former Manolo Blahnik CEO, George Malkemus, who Talley owes $500k in back rent.

Talley claims Malkemus originally bought the home for him for just over $1 million in 2004 -- and that he is the rightful owner.

He now claims that Malkemus wants to evict him from the 11-room mansion in White Plains, NY, so he can sell it at a profit.
 

Talley said there is no lease agreement on the home and that he made "episodic payments" over time based on his income.

He said he had a "gentlemen's agreement" to transfer the title of the home to him after he paid back the purchase price.

In court documents obtained by the NY Post, Talley claims Malkemus and his life partner Anthony Yurgaitis agreed that Talley would exclusively own, occupy and care for the home. "It was agreed and always understood that Talley would, over time, 'pay off' the balance of the purchase price paid by the defendants at which point title would then formally be transferred to Talley," his court documents say.

He now claims that Malkemus and Yurgaitis are pressuring him to move out so they can sell it for their own profit.

"The timing and amount of these episodic payments were based on Talley's cash flow... Talley never made these payments to the Defendants on a monthly basis, and was not asked to."

In their eviction papers, Malkemus and Yurgaitis allege the former Vogue editor owes them $515,872 in back rent.

But Talley says he paid $1,075,588 by January 2020, and that he made the $120,000 down payment when the house was originally purchased. He also says he invested more than $200,000 for home improvements over the years.

In his lawsuit, Talley is demanding that he be allowed to stay in the property and that the title be transferred in his name.

An attorney for Malkemus and Yurgaitis said he is preparing a counterclaim. "Malkemus and Yurgaitis are the record owners of the house and want to sell it," the attorney said.

Talley was appointed creative director of Vogue by Anna Wintour back in 1983. In his memoir, he said his once close relationship with the Vogue editor-in-chief was over.

He officially retired from editing in 2014.

Larsa Pippen is eager to unload her Fort Lauderdale mansion for $12 million. She's so eager that she's throwing in her collection of luxury automobiles valued at $1.5 million.

The 46-year-old former "Real Housewives of Miami" cast member originally purchased the double lot with her ex-husband, NBA star Scottie Pippen, for $1.3 million in 2000 and completed the home in 2004. They divorced in 2016 after 19 years of marriage and 4 children together.

Larsa got the house in the divorce settlement. She listed the home on the market for $11.8 million in 2014.

When the home failed to attract interest, she threw in her collection of cars -- all 2020 models -- including a Porsche 911 GTU RS, a Mercedes G63 AMG SUV and a Ferrari 488 Pista, according to Page Six.

Nowadays, Larsa luxuriates in her jacuzzi with 24-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves star Malik Beasley.

Larsa has been criticized online by Malik's ex, Montana Yao (pictured below), who claims Malik hasn't seen their son, Makai, because Larsa isn't part of the Timberwolves' "COVID bubble," according to reports.

Larsa insists she didn't start dating Malik until after he and Yao had separated. But Montana claims that's a lie.

On Feb. 9, Larsa defended Malik after he was sentenced to 120 days in jail for threatening violence for pointing a loaded firearm at a family that pulled into his rental driveway by accident.

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner "need not apply" to an exclusive country club in Florida.

The couple purchased land for $30 million on Indian Creek, considered among the wealthiest neighborhoods in the US. Neighbors include Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, Julio Iglesias, and Carl Icahn.

But owning a plot of land on the private island doesn't guarantee admission to the exclusive Indian Creek Country Club, according to Page Six.

A source tells Page Six, "You have to be nominated and make a formal application. But it only takes one member to object against any new member, and many members are objecting, particularly after the events at the Capitol on Jan. 6."

The source said members of the club were annoyed by Ivanka's "American patriots" tweet following the riots in Washington, DC.

Ivanka, 39, was with her father, President Donald Trump, in DC when he made his infamous speech prior to the riots.

"Jared and Ivanka can lunch with their fellow 'patriots' at Mar-a-Lago," the source said. "The Indian Creek Country Club members are very picky and the word is that Javanka need not apply."

The 300-member club is regarded as Dade County's "most exclusive, and controversial, private society." Admission fees exceed $150,000 a year.

Ivanka's half-sister, Tiffany Trump, is also searching for property in Miami, Page Six reports.

Tiffany, 27, who just graduated from Georgetown Law School, is searching for a condo or a house on South Beach, a source tells Page Six.

She currently lives at the swanky and ultra expensive Setai Hotel on South Beach with her boyfriend Michael Boulous, from a wealthy family in Nigeria.

Ivanka and Tiffany will be near their father who moves permanently to his exclusive Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Palm Beach, Florida after he leaves office on January 20.
