Floyd Mayweather Vegas Nightclub Sues You KO'd Your Own Bday Party!

12/11/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-floyd-mayweather-tmz-02Floyd Mayweather was gonna make $35,000 for 90 minutes of work at a Vegas nightclub ... but blew it off because he didn't feel like leaving Europe ... this according to a new lawsuit. 

Mayweather's being sued by the SLS Hotel in Vegas -- which says they had a deal with Mayweather to host his 39th birthday party at their Foxtail Nightclub on February 20. 

All Floyd had to do was show up ... host the party and do the red carpet -- and bam, easy $35,000. 

The SLS says he even got half the money in advance. 

Problem is ... Floyd allegedly bailed at the last minute so he could "stay in Europe for his birthday."

Obviously, the club was pissed ... and demanded the advance back, which Floyd has allegedly refused to fork over.

The SLS is suing for the money back -- plus additional damages.

We reached out to Floyd for comment -- so far, no word back.

Jerry Heller Nephew Wants to Breathe New Life Into N.W.A. Suit

12/11/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208_jerry_heller_soc_tmzJerry Heller's nephew wants a judge to let him create and run an estate for his late uncle ... purely for the purpose of taking down Ice Cube and Dr. Dre in court.

Lawyers for Terry Heller filed docs Tuesday asking he be named executor of Jerry's will -- all because he plans to pursue the defamation suit against everyone behind "Straight Outta Compton."

Sources close to Terry tell TMZ ... all of Jerry's assets were already put into a private trust before his death, and the only reason he's doing this is to change the name of the plaintiff from Jerry to Jerry's estate ... 'cause dead guys can't sue.

You'll recall ... Jerry sued Dre, Cube and other producers of 'Compton' for $110 mil last year, claiming the film falsely made him look like "the bad guy." A judge has tossed most of the case since then, but there's still 2 questionable scenes on the table.

Looks like Jerry's fight to defend his name will live on ... even after him.

Swedish House Mafia Nanny Sues DJ and Wife ... I Was Your Slave in Sweden!!

12/11/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-steve-isabella-tmz-instagramOne of the guys from Swedish House Mafia tricked a nanny into moving to Sweden and treated her like "human chattel" before firing her ... if you buy the nanny's account in a lawsuit.

SHM founding member Steve Angello and his wife, Isabel Adrian, hired the nanny for $50k/year and convinced her to leave L.A. and relocate to Sweden with the family ... according to docs.

The nanny says she was promised her schedule and workload caring for the couple's 2 daughters would remain the same, but things were very different in the land of Ikea. In the suit, she describes putting in 24 hour days the first 3 weeks, and living in a single hotel room with the kids.

According to the suit ... the nanny spoke up for herself after a month, and was promptly fired for complaining. She's suing the couple for lying about job duties, failing to pay overtime and wrongful termination. 

We reached out to the couple, but haven't heard back.

DeAndre Jordan Emotional Custody War Over 1-Year-old Son

12/10/2016 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-deandre-jordan-tmz-01DeAndre Jordan was a very happy man on Friday after being awarded joint custody of his 1-year-old son ... the latest in a custody war with his baby mama.

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Clippers superstar appeared in a Ventura County courtroom with his attorney, Disso Queen Laura Wasser, early Friday morning where he was battling to get overnight visits with his kid.

DJ's baby mama, who also appeared in court with her lawyer, Leon F. Bennett, is pushing for sole legal and physical custody -- and DJ is fighting back arguing that he wants to be an active parent and have a major role in his child's life.

We're told the judge ordered joint custody for now -- with overnights -- and told both parents they may NOT have drugs or alcohol 8 hours before their time with the kid and must remain sober while the child is in their care.

However, sources close to the baby mama say DJ will only have about 2 overnight visits per month.

DJ was extremely emotional during the hearing and even broke down in tears at one point. We're told he's very happy with Friday's results.

The case is due back in court in March.

Kardashian Sisters to Blac Chyna Marrying Rob Won't Get You A Pass To Profit Off Our Name

12/10/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-kardashians-blac-chyna-tmz-instagram-2Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are sticking to their guns when it comes to stopping Blac Chyna from the family name -- and neither marriage nor their mom will change that.

Sources close to the sisters tell us they will not withdraw their opposition to Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- despite Chyna's side saying there's no legal war brewing.

As we told you, BC sources say Kris Jenner reached out and promised to call off the lawyers. But our K sis sources say that's not how they feel about it. We're told it's nothing personal against BC, just biz -- they feel adding an extra woman to the roster will dilute the brand they've worked so hard to build. 

We're told they think it's odd Chyna didn't move for a trademark when she was with Tyga -- although that's kinda apples and oranges. $1 if you know his last name.

Our sources close to Kris say the conversation those close to Chyna alleged the two had to smooth things over never even took place. 

On a personal level, we're told everyone in the fam is getting along well with Chyna since the birth of Dream. Still, business is business and our sources say the sisters' lawyers have made several attempts to negotiate ... but Chyna's team's gone radio silent.

Apollo Nida Not So Fast, Phaedra ... Your Divorce Docs Are Wack!

12/10/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-apollo-phaedra-tmz-2Apollo Nida refuses to accept his divorce from Phaedra Parks is a done deal, and his reason -- spelling counts.

Apollo points out his ex's legal name is Phaedra Parks Nida, but in her divorce docs it's spelled "Nita" -- ditto for the spelling of his name in those docs.

He's now filed a motion to vacate her divorce, but not only due to the typos. In the motion, obtained by TMZ, Apollo says the 'RHOA' star took advantage of the fact he's in prison. He says there was a final hearing in July, but he was never notified of it ... and therefore, the divorce should be thrown out.

TMZ broke the story ... Phaedra's unsealed docs appear to back her claim she's been single since July, but if a judge buys Apollo's side of the story ... they could be back to square one.

Let's not forget ... Apollo filed his own divorce docs.

Adrien Broner Loses Threesome Sex Tape Case ... Protect Your 'Ho Phone'

12/9/2016 11:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-adrien-broner-tmz-1Adrien Broner just learned the hard way ... if you're going to record a threesome on your phone -- DON'T LET IT GO PUBLIC!!!

A Nevada court just ordered the boxer to fork over $175,000 (plus other fees) to one of his co-stars from a 2013 romp after the footage mysteriously surfaced on World Star Hip Hop. 

Broner had argued that he didn't intentionally leak the video (which was shot with the consent of his 2 partners) ... but he had lost the phone he shot it on and someone else posted it. 

So, why didn't Broner have a password on his phone? 

The boxer testified that he has 3 phones on him at all times -- a business phone, a family phone and a "ho phone" (his actual words). 

Broner says he simply never bothered to password protect the ho phone -- so anyone could've had access to his x-rated library. 

The jury bought Broner's story and found that he did not act intentionally ... just negligently ... and ordered him to fork over the $40k in lost wages and $135k for pain and suffering. 

The plaintiff's attorney, Kevin Hansen, tells TMZ Sports, "I'm happy to see that the jury saw through the defendant’s games. They saw [my client] for who she is and Broner for who he is."

Suicidal Tendencies Ex-Bassist Says He's Getting Punked ... Demands Dough For '80s Hit

12/9/2016 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208_louiche-mayorga_suicidal-tendencies_facebookLouis Mayorga co-wrote and played bass on a classic punk tune while he was in the band Suicidal Tendencies ... and he's pissed the checks have stopped coming in for it.

Mayorga is suing Lisa Fancher -- founder of Frontier Records -- for not regularly paying him his royalties for ST's self-titled album featuring the hit song, "Institutionalized" ... according to the docs.

Mayorga says he has to hound Fancher for his cash until she finally sends him a check for an "arbitrary amount." He says these checks never come with an earnings statement, so he has no way to check if he's getting a legit cut.

According to the suit, Fancher sent him an email in June telling him sales are bad and he's not a top priority. Mayorga says he hasn't gotten a dime from her since.

He's suing her for any money he didn't receive.

T.J. Miller Arrested for Uber Fight Over Trump ... 'Tis the Season??

12/9/2016 6:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-tj-miller-tmz-03"Silicon Valley" star T.J. Miller got arrested in Hollywood for allegedly making his Uber driver see stars, and not the good rating kind either.

Law enforcement sources tell us T.J.'s driver picked him up from the GQ Men of the Year party early Friday morning, and during the ride they got into an argument about President-elect Donald Trump. The driver claims T.J. slapped him in the head when they got to his house.

We're told the driver got pissed and decided to make a citizen's arrest. He called cops who showed up and took T.J. into custody. We're told the driver did NOT have any visible injuries, and it's he said/he said at this point.

T.J. was released without having to post bail. Our sources say he seemed intoxicated.

1209-tj-miller-gq-party-GETTY-01Makes sense ... he was in a festive mood Thursday night. Besides the GQ party at Chateau Marmont, T.J. also went to the Vulture Awards bash at Sunset Tower.

Miller's movie, "Office Christmas Party," opens today. #GreatTiming 

Kardashians & Blac Chyna Cease-fire Called in Family Name War ... For Now

12/9/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208-blac-chyna-kardashians-tmz-2Blac Chyna got railroaded by the Kardashians' attorneys -- not the K sisters themselves -- in her effort to trademark herself as a member of the fam ... and now Kris Jenner's doing damage control.

Sources close to BC tell TMZ ... KimKourtney, and Khloe reached out to her and assured her their lawyers were following standard ops when they filed docs to block Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- not singling her out.

The assurances were necessary after the language the lawyers used. We broke the story ... the docs said all 3 sisters would "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill" if Chyna got the green light to use the Kardashian name in entertainment.

We're told Kris personally told Chyna there's no beef ... it was a simple mix-up and she's calling off the legal eagles. For now, everyone's saying the right things to make Chyna feel better about the legal diss -- but, fact is, her trademark still hasn't been approved.

Until it is ... it's a lot of lip service.

Renee Zellweger Roped into BF's War with Ex ... My Money's MINE

12/9/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-renee-zellweger-doyle-bramhall-tmz-01Renee Zellweger had serious issues with her boyfriend's ex-wife trying to pry into her personal life ... so she's desperately trying to get a judge to nip it in the bud.

Renee's boyfriend, rocker Doyle Bramhall, is battling his ex, Susannah Melvoin, over child support. According to docs ... Melvoin wanted Renee's income, living expenses and business deals ... admitted as evidence in the case.

It appears Melvoin wants to paint a picture of what she thinks is Doyle's lavish lifestyle with Renee, but Renee's not having it. She fired back in docs, saying her personal and professional life are separate from her bf's case -- and Melvoin's just trying to force a confrontation in court.

She got it. Renee testified, but mostly about a few gifts she'd bought for Doyle. She didn't seem too pissed outside court, and we're told there were no fireworks ... even though Susannah was there.

1208_judge-reinhold_mug-wmWe just got Judge Reinhold's mug shot from his Dallas arrest, and looks like he lost his sense of humor once it came time for booking.

Things always get more serious when you hear ... "And turn to the left."

Art Briles Sues Baylor Officials I'm Not Your Rape Scandal Scapegoat

12/8/2016 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1208-art-briles-getty-01Art Briles claims he did NOT hide knowledge of alleged rapes by Baylor football players while he was the head coach ... and now he's suing 4 Baylor officials claiming they conspired to throw him under the bus. 

Briles -- who was fired back in May -- just sued 3 school regents and a vice president for libel and slander.

In his suit, Briles says he was not made aware of the numbers the regents released to the Wall Street Journal ... that 17 women reported domestic violence or sexual assaults involving 19 football players. 

Briles claims the school officials intentionally went public with the numbers to expose him to "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and cause him financial injury."

He essentially claims they made him the fall guy ... unfairly.

Briles says the allegations have made him college football poison -- severely hurting his chances to coach again. 

"By their actions, [the Baylor officials] are allowing the alleged rapists and assaulters to walk free, thereby confirming that they are more interested in ruining Coach Briles' name, reputation and career than they are bringing criminals to justice."
