Mariah to James Packer Pay Me $50 Million for My Troubles

10/28/2016 8:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mariah Carey has privately made a demand to James Packer ... he needs to pay her $50 mil ... or else.

Sources connected to the now warring ex-couple tell TMZ ... Mariah believes James has cost her tens of millions of dollars, and here's why:

-- She claims he got her to move from New York to L.A., uprooting her entire life, so he could be near his kids. 

-- She claims the incident on the yacht in Greece -- where she says he did something awful to her assistant -- has traumatized Mariah so much she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour. 

-- He made various financial promises to her. 

No comment from Packer.

Fetty Wap Sued You Owe Me Benjamins for '679'

10/28/2016 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-fetty-wap-p-dice-tmz-instagram-01Fetty Wap ruthlessly cut the lyrics written by a former Remy Boyz member for his mega hit "679" and cheated him out of major cash ... so claims Fetty's ex-homie.

Rapper P-Dice says he helped write the multi-platinum song, and Fetty cut a deal to give him 16.9% of the profits off the track, but in a lawsuit PD says he was scrubbed from the song to avoid the payout.

According to the docs, Fetty verbally agreed to give P-Dice writing credit -- but after they finished recording, Fetty deleted his entire performance and reduced his share of the profits to 5%.

P-Dice -- who appears prominently in the "679" music video -- says the edited version ended up on Fetty's album which debuted No. 1 on Billboard. The music vid alone has topped 238 million views.

P-Dice is suing for damages in excess of $7 million. We reached out to Fetty, so far no word back.

Mariah Carey Packer Went Berserk on Dancer ... Banned Him From Her Shows

10/27/2016 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-getty-92James Packer went crazy on a guy he suspected was making moves on Mariah Carey ... sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ.

Our Mariah sources say Packer grew jealous of her relationship with Bryan Tanaka -- her dancer and choreographer -- and the tension boiled over in June at Mariah's show.

We're told Bryan wasn't dancing that night due to an injury, so Packer thought it was weird he botherd to show up. Packer pulled Bryan into a room for a little mano a mano. Our sources say there was a ton of yelling, but it's unclear if it got physical.

We're told Packer was so crazed he used his casino ties -- he owns several in Australia and Asia -- to get Tanaka banned from Caesar's Palace, where MC performs. This photo of Bryan was circulated to security. 

1027_Mariah-Careys-banned-dancerWe're told Mariah didn't make a fuss because Bryan, who was nursing a knee injury, wasn't dancing. Mariah sources say she feared Packer. As we've reported, she thinks he's "mentally unstable."

Our Mariah sources think James got suspicious after she gave Bryan a lap dance -- a staple in her show -- during a May performance in South Africa.


Irina Shayk Hey Good Looking ... What's Cooking?

10/28/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-irina-shayk-getty-01The answer is ... nothing -- although Irina Shayk's little black dress made it seem like she had something in the oven Thursday night in London.

Irina hit up Mark's Club in London with fellow model Lara Stone -- flashing max cleavage, but everyone's looking a little lower. Yeah, it kinda looked like she had a little extra in the belly area, and honestly ... we had to look closely more than twice.

But the dress is just a poor-fitting, optical illusion. Check out a side view of the supermodel 3 weeks ago.

We'll consider this confirmation, Bradley Cooper -- you're in the clear.

Donald Trump Accuser I Voted ... Incognito!

10/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027_mindy_undercover_Ken-Davidoff--OldrockphotofacebookOne of Donald Trump's accusers already cast her vote for president ... and she went to the polls undercover, out of fear.

Mindy McGillivray -- who claims Trump grabbed her ass at Mar-a-Lago in 2003 -- went to a Florida polling place this week. She stopped by Trump's hotel afterwards for the photo op. 

Mindy says she went in disguise so she wouldn't get harassed. Trump is neck and neck with Hillary in the Sunshine State, so she feared lots of people would be angry at her.  

Her plan worked ... she slipped in and out without detection.

Mindy and one of the other Trump accusers say they're ready to go to war if Donald sues them.

'Elf on the Shelf' There's Only One Rule You Have to Follow ... Don't Rip Us Off!

10/28/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-elf-on-a-shelf-fun-art-02The makers of some 'Elf on the Shelf' merch awoke to find a lawsuit ... courtesy of the woman who literally wrote the book on the holiday craze.

Carol Aebersold, co-author of "The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition" ... made a fortune selling gear based on the book. But in a lawsuit she says Maureen and Manus McGee have been hawking knockoffs, and even participated in the illegal download of 'Elf' movies.

In the docs, Carol says the McGees even bitch about eBay yanking their listings -- because they're unauthorized -- insisting they have a right to sell their version.

Carol's elf co. is suing for every dime the couple's made in the elf game -- and yes, they want all the "counterfeit" dolls hauled off shelves.
