Migos Sued They Ran Off with $20k Wardrobe On Sexy Music Vid Shoot

2/24/2017 5:08 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Migos got real bad and real boujee with the fancy shirts and shades they rocked on a music video shoot -- according to the stylist who says they jacked $20k worth of gear.

Migos co-starred in Niykee Heaton's "Bad Intentions" vid, shot last year in Encino, CA. The video is pretty hot -- Niykee's scantily clad through most of it, as all 3 guys from Migos wear a ridiculously expensive wardrobe.

Stylist Marcus Clark says they never returned the shirts on their backs, and although he made several attempts to retrieve the gear, the best he got was a text from Migos' manager saying ... "That's over wit."

According to docs, they walked off with:
- 3 Enfants Riches Déprimés shirts, $18,138
- 2 pairs of vintage sunglasses (Versace and Les Copains), $700

Taxes alone on the shirts came to $1,632! 

Clark's so pissed he's not just suing for the value of the over high-priced items -- he wants more than $1 million in damages.

We reached out to Migos' camp ... no word back.

0224-michael-lockwood-visitation-02Lisa Marie Presley's estranged husband is having regular visits with their children -- even though they're in protective custody -- but we've learned it's a deal both parents struck.

Muhammad Ali's Son Detained at Airport ... They Asked 'Are You Muslim?'

2/24/2017 12:33 PM PST
Exclusive Details

0224-muhammed-ali-jr

Muhammad Ali Jr. was detained for 2 hours at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport ... and he's ready to sue because he thinks it's because he's Muslim.

Ali Jr.'s spokesman, Chris Mancini, tells TMZ ... his client was returning from Jamaica with his mother, Khalilah Ali -- Ali's first wife -- on February 7 when immigration officers stopped them. She got through, but he was taken to a small room for 2 hours and questioned.

Mancini says Ali's 44-year-old son was asked twice if he's Muslim, and also where he got his name. He was traveling on a U.S. Passport.

Ali Jr. is looking into suing the U.S. Treasury and Homeland Security over the incident. Mancini believes it hints at a larger issue of profiling and discrimination. He's interested in filing the lawsuit as a class action.

Worth noting ... Feb. 7 was 4 days after a federal judge put the kibosh on President Trump's immigration ban. U.S. Customs and Border Protections told us it can't comment on individual travelers, but "all international travelers arriving in the U.S. are subject to CBP inspection."

Amber Rose Oh, I OWN Ace of Diamonds ... I Have Receipts!!

2/24/2017 11:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose isn't sweating the lawsuit accusing her of lying about buying Ace of Diamonds strip club because she's getting a trademark to back her up ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs, Amber formed a corporation called Ace of Diamonds, Inc. and back in December filed for a trademark on the name, as well as the abbreviation "AoD." The docs say the trademark will be for "entertainment services in the nature of live dance performances" and "gentlemen's clubs featuring exotic dancing."

It hasn't been stamped and approved just yet, but she's clearly confident she's going to get it. It also explains why she blurted it out at the All Def Movie Awards.

As we first reported, the current owners of the club say Amber doesn't own a damn thing, and they've filed a $1 million slander suit against her.

Amber's trademark could face an uphill battle because the current AoD has been operating for years, which carries legal weight. Still, she's pressing ahead ... telling us she's opening a new location in a month and a half -- still on Monday nights.
