Trump Hotel Sues NFL Player Over Wedding Reception

2/26/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0224-amber-justin-trump-towers-weddingDonald Trump's Chicago hotel is suing an NFL player and his bride for allegedly stiffing the hotel on a big wedding bill, but it seems from the lawsuit something went wrong during the reception.

Tennessee Titans linebacker Justin Staples tied the knot with Amber last June and, judging from the video, the reception was fun and lovely. They even had Afterglow Snacks, which, based on the menu, may have included cheeseburger sliders, buffalo wings, fried mac and cheese bites and BBQ spiced waffle fries.

Justin and Amber apparently drove a hard bargain before the wedding, because Trump International Hotel and Tower dropped their proposed fee to $79,484.

According to the lawsuit, Justin and Amber paid $30k, but that was it.

Now, here's a big clue. According to the lawsuit, at the end of the reception, the hotel slashed another $5,062.13 from the bill, so it seems like something happened ... maybe food wasn't served, the cake was wonky, the bar ran out of liquor, the joint shut down too early ... something.

Staples' agent tell us, Justin paid every penny he was obligated to pay and the claim is "baseless."

Tupac Deathmobile for Sale

EXCLUSIVE

0224-tupac-bmw-car-for-sale-bullet-holes-photos-mainThe BMW in which Tupac was shot and killed can be yours ... for $1.5 million!!!

An auction house has put the 750IL up for sale. It won't be auctioned, but will be sold to someone with $1.5M.  

You'll recall Suge Knight was behind the wheel and Tupac was in the passenger seat in 1996 when they were ambushed. The car was littered with bullets on the Vegas strip.

The whip's been restored to its former glory, but a close inspection reveals its bullet-ridden history ... the indentations are visible inside the door panels.

As for how the BMW ended up at an auction house ... after the murder, Vegas PD impounded it and the car was auctioned off. It changed hands several times before finding its most recent owner.

And, in case you're wondering ... the Beemer has more than 90k miles.

Carnival Company Sued The Ring of Fire Ride Electrocuted Me

The Shelby County carnival in Tennessee is so dangerous it's shocking ... according to a new suit.

A carnival employee is suing Amusements of America -- one of the largest traveling amusement park companies -- claiming it failed to safely set up the Ring of Fire thrill ride in August 2016 ... which led to him being electrocuted.

The man says the ride hit a power line 35 feet in the air while it was being raised, which caused an electrical overload in a nearby generator. Problem is -- the guy claims he was using that generator to set up another carnival ride, and he got zapped.

According to the docs ... high-voltage currents from the generator shot into the man's hands as he held the controls. He says he was "frozen" in extreme pain until the current left his body by "exploding" out the bottom of his left foot. He says his shoe erupted in flames.

The man claims he was severely and permanently injured and his foot required 2 surgeries before he could leave the hospital.

He's asking for $25 million.

0225-natalie-portman-gettyThere's clearly something in the air in Hollywood -- first Beyonce cancelled her Coachella gig, and now Natalie Portman's skipping out on The Oscars -- and it's all because she's about to pop. 

Portman, who's nominated for best actress for her role as Jackie Kennedy in "Jackie" will also skip Saturday's Independent Spirit Awards where she's got a nom for best female lead.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Portman said, "Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards. I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends."

You'll remember ... Beyonce announced Thursday she'd miss Coachella in April thanks to doctor's orders as she's expecting twins ... looks like Portman's followed suit.

Ma's "Shether" is a nearly 7-minute slaughter of Nicki, with cover art that features Minaj's Pink Barbie persona cut into pieces.

As for the lyrics, Ma doesn't hold back ... saying, “You stole that line about bitches being your sons. How you take my ’09 jail tweet and run. Talkin’ ‘bout bringing knives to a fight with guns. When the only shot you ever took was in your buns."

And we thought Drake and Meek Mill was nasty ...
