Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino is accused of selling fake bags online.

According to MTO News, a group of angry customers contacted the FBI to report Zampino for allegedly selling bootleg designer bags at designer prices.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills "friend" reportedly sells the high end bags on her online boutique called Sheree Elizabeth Boutique.

"I take great pleasure in buying & selecting each item offered at Sheree Elizabeth Boutique," she writes on her website. "My mission is to provide each customer access to a variety of coveted styles, designs, and trends in order to create a unique shopping experience that you won't find anywhere else!"

But Zampino's clients complained that she sold them cheap Chinese knock off handbags which look similar to the authentic bags but with noticeable differences.

It's illegal and a federal offense to knowingly sell bootleg designer handbags. The offense is punishable by prison time and a stiff fine.

Zampino, 54, is actor Will Smith's first wife. They were married from 1992 to 1995 and they share a son named Trey Smith, 29.

She also has a daughter by her second husband, Terrell Fletcher. Zampino and Fletcher separated in 2014 after 7 years of marriage.

Zampino responded to the allegations in a video on her Instagram page.

Houston Rockets guard Jalen Green attended the Versace Show at Milan Fashion Week with his Instagram model girlfriend Breah Hicks.

Jalen, who is only 20, rocked a pretty pink Versace purse to accessorize his Versace outfit.

His style didn't raise any eyebrows because this look is normal for today's fashion forward males at a fashion show.

A TikTok video captured the moment a shoplifting gang rammed an NYPD police car while attempting to flee with $70,000 of designer clothes and bags.

New York City has become the Wild Wild East where overall crimes are up over 44% since the pandemic.

The TikTok video shows NYPD cops surrounding a Dodge Charger after the driver rammed a patrol car.

Police used their batons to hit the windows of the Charger before the women opened the car doors and surrendered.

Police arrested three suspects, Janavia Marable, 29, Brianna Grier, 27, and Jahil Pamplin, 29, all of Newark, New Jersey.

The incident began after the trio looted a high end store, making off with $70,000 worth of designer clothing and handbags on Sunday in SoHo, NY.

According to DailyMail.com, the women stole Dior and Gucci clothing, multiple Sacai jackets, and two Bottega bags, which retail for more than $2,000.

When the thieves tried to flee in the Charger they got stuck in traffic.

That's when the driver rammed the NYPD cruiser behind her and the police began hitting the car windows with their batons.

The trio are believed to be the suspects who previously robbed the same high end boutique in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood.

Kanye West is catching heat for gifting Julia Fox's friends with Hermès Birkin handbags at her 32nd birthday celebration dinner.

Kanye, also known as Ye, surprised his girlfriend, Julia, with diamonds and a baby Birkin. He then handed out Birkin bags to her well-heeled girlfriends. The bags retail for $25,000 to $250,000.

Video from the party circulating on social media shows the only Black woman empty handed while the other ladies posed with their Birkins.

Black Twitter suggested that Julia's only Black friend was left out of the gift giving because of the color of her skin.

According to Page Six, Julia's birthday dinner went down at new Midtown Chinese eatery Sei Less.

"There were some girls trying to get his attention... when Julia went to the bathroom," a source told Page Six.

Sources told the outlet the couple fled uptown "when they got a call from 2 Chainz, who was there dining with rapper Fabolous in a private dining room."

"It was just a random dinner that turned into a big night," the source said.

Watch the video below.

Cardi B is bored with life while waiting for the arrival of her second child with Migos rapper Offset.

The 28-year-old "WAP" rapper dusted off her Hermès Birkin handbag collection to show off to her followers.

Cardi posted photos of her impressive collection on Instagram on Tuesday. She wore a curve-fitting maternity frock by Thierry Mugler.

She captioned the images: "Every other day new wig new hair, come take me out this Mugler ... a couple weeks ago."

She also displayed her handbag collection last year to "oohs" and "ahs" from her envious followers.

This time she laid out her bags on the floor -- as if taking inventory.

Cardi showed off her newest purchases last month. "PICK A COLOR" she wrote in the caption.

She allegedly purchased a Birkin Cargo bag, which she allegedly paid $240,000 for, in February after "searching the world" for the rare multi-pocketed design.

There's a waiting list to purchase a brand new Birkin bag. Gently used bags can be purchased in the online marketplace from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.

Louis Vuitton's airplane-themed purse is taking the Internet by storm. The unisex handbag, shaped like a commercial airliner, is all the rage on fashion blogs.

Designed by Virgil Abloh, the $39,000 handbag was inspired by "tourist vs. purist."

Dominique Charriau/WireImage

The airplane bag debuted during the Louis Vuitton Menswear Fall/ 2021-2022 runway show as part of Paris Fashion Week on January 20, 2021 in Paris, France.

"It's my organizing principle for my point of view when I make things," Abloh told Vogue in January. "A tourist is someone who’s eager to learn, who wants to see the Eiffel Tower when they come to Paris. The purist is the person who knows everything about everything."

Not everyone loves the high priced high-flying aviation purse.

"You can buy an actual plane for far less," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user tweeted: "Can it fly at least? No but what, is this serious?"

Question: Would you purchase the airplane purse for your handbag collection?

Saweetie apologized for causing an uproar online with her controversial comments about Hermès Birkin bags, insisting they "symbolize a gift of value" in a relationship.

Last week, the "Icy Grl" rapper made blog headlines after her boyfriend, rapper Quavo gifted her with a Birkin in honor of the success of her new single "Back to the Streets."

She took to Instagram Live to tell her fans, "If he not getting you a Birkin, if he not paying for your bills, then throw that n***a back to the streets, OK?"

Saweetie immediately came under fire for her comments. Sensible women called out the 26-year-old for putting material objects above healthy relationships.

In a new interview, Saweetie said her comment shouldn't be taken seriously and that she's "an entertainer and I come to entertain."

Saweetie compared herself to rap mogul Jay Z: "So that was an entertaining comment. Like Jay Z says at the end of "Ignorant S**t," he goes, 'It's only entertainment,' and then he does this little evil laugh," Saweetie told Power 106 Los Angeles with Bryhana.

"I was having a good time, promoting 'Back to the Streets.' And, you know, I'm popping my s–t for my girls."

But she continued to insist that Birkin handbags, which retail for over $20,000, make a woman feel valued. "I feel like a Birkin symbolizes a gift of value," she said.

She continued:

"But what comes along with being valued? It comes with a healthy relationship. It comes with communication. It comes with getting gifts. It comes with being spoiled, because at the end of the day, we create life ... Women are magical creatures and we deserve to be treated like a queen. So that's what I meant by that statement."

The rapper, real name Diamonte Quiava Valentin Harper, added:

"A Birkin is symbolic. Get her a purse, get her some jewelry - of course, according to your tax bracket. I don't want you to clean out your savings to try to keep up with social media or society... It was a quick comment that represents how I feel women should be treated, which is showered with gifts, OK?"

A Las Vegas couple has been charged with defrauding Medicaid out of $13 million and laundering the money by purchasing expensive jewelry, cars, designer handbags and other luxury goods.

Timothy and Latisha Harron were charged with seven counts of defrauding the North Carolina Medicaid system, according to Insider.com.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the couple committed "massive fraud" by laundering $13 million through their purchase of expensive luxury goods, gym equipment, luxury watches, high-end vehicles and a private jet worth $900,000.


 

The Harrons flossed their affluent lifestyle on social media where they shared photos of Tiffany Jewelry boxes, designer clothes and handbags, and vacations to exotic locales, including Bora Bora and Cancun.

A federal grand jury indicted the couple on May 19, according to the DOJ. The Harrons, who married in 2018, were arrested Wednesday and charged with seven counts of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and wire fraud, aggravated identify theft, conspiracy to commit money laundering and making false statements related to health care matters.

The Harrons allegedly stole the money by submitting fraudulent bills to Medicaid through Agape Healthcare Systems, Inc. -- a company founded by Latisha, 44, in North Carolina in 2010.

She committed fraud by registering the company with Medicaid in NC without disclosing she had previously been convicted of identity theft.

The couple allegedly searched through obituaries to find people who had recently died in North Carolina. Using information from the obituaries, they would turn to the NC Medicaid eligibility tool to find whether the person had a Medicaid Identification Number.

Using that number, they back billed Medicaid for "fictitious services" they claimed to have provided to the person before death.

The couple flaunted their extravagant lifestyle on Instagram, showing off expensive jewelry, and posing for pictures at 5-star restaurants, luxury suites at sporting events, and on lavish vacations. Mr. Harron tagged the photos "#millionaire, #billionaire, #entrepreneur" and "millionaire lifestyle."


 

In one caption for a photo gallery showing off Tiffany boxes and high end shoes and bags, Harron wrote, "Sometimes it's a @tiffanyandco , @brioni_official & @louisvuitton kind of day! All delivered and didn't have to leave the #penthouse. Mrs. Harron, nothing but the best!"

When the couple was arrested, the feds seized an Aston Martin sports car and the couple's expensive wine collection.

Last year's telecast of ABC's American Music Awards hit a record all-time low in the Nielsen television ratings. If the ratings improve for tonight's AMAs telecast, ABC can thank Lizzo and her tiny Valentino purse. The purse is barely big enough to hold one Trojan condom and maybe a throat lozenge.

The morbidly obese "Truth Hurts" singer turned heads when she meandered down the red carpet wearing an orange, one-shouldered mini dress and a lacefront wig with side swept bangs. According to People magazine, she accessorized her frock with strappy white Stuart Weitzman sandals and the world's most expensive condom holder - a tiny silver Valentino purse.

"There's only three in the world," Lizzo said, as photographers zoomed in on the mini bag. When asked what she managed to pack inside the mini clutch, Lizzo responded, "I got tampons in here, a flask of tequila, condoms..."

Photos of the tiny fashion accessory went viral across all social media platforms. Social media users couldn't get enough of Lizzo's personal style.

The American Music Awards got underway at 8 p.m. Sunday. Lizzo, 31, is up for 3 awards, including best new artist, soul/R&B song of the year and soul/R&B female artist of the year. Last week, she scored 8 Grammy nominations, including record of the year and song of the year for "Truth Hurts," album of the year for Cuz I Love You and best new artist.

Hollywood liberals are outraged over President Trump's participation in a ribbon cutting ceremony for a 100,000-square-foot Louis Vuitton factory in Texas on Thursday.

Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner joined Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton LVMH chairman-CEO Bernard Arnault and other Louis Vuitton executives at the ribbon cutting ceremony in Alvarado, Texas. Trump was in Texas to hold a campaign rally.

Celebrities were beside themselves. "I wonder what [Trump] has to gain from that. Maybe Ivanka's going to get a year's worth of free bags," said actress Ellen Pompeo.

Actress Debra Messing tweeted:

"Just so you know, Trump is at a Louis Vuitton opening while 10s of 1000s of Kurds — who were forced to flee their homes — try to find a safe place to survive as refugees."

She was referring to Trump withdrawing American troops from Syria, leaving America's allies, the Kurds, to fend for themselves.

It is not unusual for a U.S. president to participate in ribbon cutting ceremonies for hospitals or government buildings. But a president participating in the opening of a high end luxury brand smacks of hypocrisy, critics say.
