Yousef Erakat and Alex Wassabi are firing back at the CEO who claims the YouTube stars set him up to make it look like he jacked their camera.

As for Camilo's claim he was taking the camera to lost and found? Check out our clip ... they see right through it.

Whitney Houston Here's Proof Emmy Auction Is Illegal ... TV Academy Sues

6/22/2016 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-whitney-houston-emmy-getty-03Whitney Houston's Emmy award will NOT be auctioned off without a fight ... the Television Academy just filed a lawsuit accusing Heritage Auctions of theft.

TMZ broke the story ... the Academy is trying to block Heritage from putting the statuette on the block -- on behalf of Whitney's family -- claiming it contractually MUST be returned to the Academy.

In the docs -- filed in L.A. and obtained by TMZ -- the Academy included the sticker it says has been affixed to the bottom of EVERY Emmy handed out between 1978 to 1994. Whitney won hers in 1986.

0622-sub-emmy-bottom-02

The sticker makes it clear the statuette is the Academy's property and the winner's heirs are "obligated to return" it ... as opposed to selling it or throwing it away.

Heritage thinks the Academy is bullying the Houston family ... because more than 3 dozen other Emmy awards have been auctioned off without a peep. The live auction for Whitney's trophy is set for Friday, but the online auction is already up and running ... and someone's already bid $10k!

Dez Bryant Sued Allegedly Trashed Texas Mansion ... 'Trash, Feces, Odors'

6/22/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0622-dez-bryant-tmz-02Dez Bryant has been sued for allegedly causing more than $60,000 in damage to a Texas home owned by a state senator ... a man who claims Bryant left the home littered in "trash and feces."

The man behind the lawsuit is Royce West -- a member of the Texas senate -- who says he rented out his 6,400 square foot 6 bed, 7.5 bath mansion to the Dallas Cowboys WR from 2013 to 2016. 

In the suit, West says Bryant was paying $4,720 per month ... and agreed to leave the home in good condition. 

0622_dez_bryant_house_launchBut West says ... when Bryant left the home in January, the place was a disaster ... "a state of serious disrepair."

In fact, West says the place was covered in "animal feces, trash, missing blinds and shutters, with cracked windows and blackened carpeting."

He says there were also "distinct and pervasive odors throughout" the home.

West says he was forced to undergo a MASSIVE cleanup to restore the home including: 

-- removing trash and furniture

-- repainting the entire residence 

-- cleaning, removing and replacing flooring and carpeting 

-- replacing the lighting and ceiling fans 

-- replacing windows and screens

-- replacing the home security system 

In the end, the repairs cost $61,546.77. 

BTW, this is the home where Dez famously lived with his pet monkey last year. Unclear if that explains the animal feces. 

West says he approached Bryant and his team and demanded the money for the repairs -- but Bryant threw up the X ... and never forked over the dough. 

West says he's been unable to rent the place out due to the damage and repair work -- and wants a TON of cash from Bryant ... somewhere between $100k and $200k. 

We reached out to Bryant's reps -- so far, no word back. 

Prince DNA Shuts Down Long-Lost 'Son'

6/22/2016 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42116-prince-getty-04Prince is NOT the father of the federal prisoner who claimed he was the singer's long-lost son ... according to Maury Povich DNA testing.

Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell us the DNA test returned a 0.0% chance that Carlin Q. Williams is Prince's spawn. In docs, Carlin said his mother met Prince in 1976 and knocked her up in a Kansas City hotel.

Carlin -- in prison for gun possession -- is one of several people who've come out of the woodwork claiming blood relations. Another woman, Taz Walker, also claims Prince was her pops.

It's unclear what the status is of her case.

Ivanka Trump Sued Shoe Competitor Wants Her Kicked to Curb

6/22/2016 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-ivanka-trump-tmz-02update_graphic_red_bar10:05 AM PT -- Matthew Burris, CFO for Marc Fisher -- Ivanka's licensing company -- says, "This is a baseless lawsuit aimed at generating publicity. The shoe in question is representative of a trending fashion style, is not subject to intellectual property law protection and there are similar styles made by several major brands."

He adds, "The lawsuit is without merit and we will vigorously defend ourselves against the claim." update_grey_gray_barIvanka Trump's shoe line is a shameless knockoff of a wildly popular Italian stiletto ... so claims the Italian shoemaker.

Aquazzura claims in a new lawsuit, Ivanka's Hettie shoe is almost a carbon copy of its Wild Thing pump ... a shoe that protects the feet of the famous-ish, including Solange and Olivia Palermo.

0622_AQUAZZURA_ivanka_trump_shoes_sub_5

Aquazzura points to the color, shape and silhouette, as well the fringe covering the toes to the tassel on the heel.

Aquazzura says Ivanka jacked their shoes before ... copying its Belgravia shoe and calling it Necila, and also copying its Forever Marilyn shoe and calling it Teagin Pointy Toe Pump with Tassel.

That's shoe biz ...

Whitney Houston Emmy Battle Heading for Court

6/22/2016 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-whitney-houston-emmy-gettyWhitney Houston's only Emmy award is about to go up for auction IF Emmy honchos fail in their last ditch effort to block the sale ... TMZ has learned.

The Television Academy says it's going into court Wednesday morning to request a restraining order against Heritage Auctions ... which plans to put Whitney's 1986 Emmy statuette up for grabs on Friday.

Heritage is hawking the award on behalf of Whitney's estate -- but the Television Academy has strict rules about its awards. According to the Academy, all winners sign an agreement that their heirs or successors must "return the statuette to the Academy, and we hold it in storage in memory of the recipient.”

A rep for Heritage tells TMZ ... they've asked the Academy multiple times to produce Whitney's signature on that agreement, but no dice to this point. Heritage says it's moving forward unless a judge drops the hammer.

They expect the award to sell for upwards of $10,000. By the way, Whitney won the Emmy for her performance on the Grammys. Weird, right?

EXCLUSIVE

0622-johnny-manziel-car-wrecked-tmz-01Johnny Manziel says he can explain how his car got wrecked in Dallas -- claiming he was the VICTIM in a brutal hit-and-run crash and the cops are involved. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Manziel's Nissan GTR sustained all sorts of damage to the driver's side of the car this week ... in an incident that also set off his airbags. 

We spoke with Manziel's rep, Denise Michaels, who tells us ... "Johnny told me his car was T-boned and the driver just rode away right after. He reported it to police."

But here's the weird thing ... we spoke with Dallas PD and as of Tuesday afternoon, we were told there was no record of an incident involving Manziel. 

update_graphic_red_bar9:14 AM PT -- The Dallas PD is now saying they DO have a report from Manziel -- though it's unclear when the report was filed. 

Cops say the accident occurred Monday night -- and Manziel claims he has a witness from his car and an impartial witness who can corroborate his story. 

Manziel's rep says the QB hit his head in the crash -- but did not suffer a concussion or any other major injury. 

Former 'Doctors' Host Stylist Wants to Give Doc Dressing Down ... In Court

6/22/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-rachael-ross-dress-damaged-MAIN-getty-01Dr. Rachael Ross, a former host on "The Doctors," threw a hissy fit over her Daytime Emmy dress, ruined it and stiffed the stylist ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Stylist Ali Levine claims in a new small claims court lawsuit she did God's work trying to get Rachael ready for the big shindig last month, only to get the boot without getting full payment.

A rep for Ali tells TMZ, she worked with Rachael, fitting her in a one-of-a-kind Pia Gladys Perey gown, which she says Rachael ruined by smearing makeup all over it.  

We're told the designer went the extra mile and offered Rachael other options, but the doc went all diva, rejecting them all and eventually hiring another stylist.

Ali isn't suing for the ruined dress ... the designer owned it. But she wants full payment for all her time. She's suing for the balance ... $559.75.

Sounds like a good case for "The People's Court." Hint.

Amber Rose, Steph Curry 'Moji' CEO Busted For Stealing Camera From YouTube Star's Crew

6/21/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-oliver-camilo-emoji-creator-GETTY-04The guy behind celeb emoji apps for Amber RoseSteph Curry, Rick Ross and Future just got arrested for stealing, and thanks to a YouTube star ... the whole bust was recorded. 

Cops say they got a call for a stolen camera at LAX Monday. When they arrived, they were told Oliver Camilo had yanked the equipment from a passenger on his plane. Unfortunately for Camilo that passenger was a friend of YouTuber DOSEofFOUSEY.

You can see in DoF's video ... Camilo initially denied jacking the gear, but after a ton of prodding ... gave it up and ended up in handcuffs.

DoF chose to blur Camilo's face but our law enforcement sources tell us it's the celeb app creator. 

Plus, Camilo himself told us he planned to turn in the camera to lost and found. He says he was shocked by how aggressive DoF was, and that's why he didn't want to hand it over right away. He actually thinks the whole thing was some weird YouTube video experiment.

Camilo also points out he was carrying around $5k of Louis Vuitton luggage, so he doesn't need to steal -- which probably won't hold up in court.

When it comes to the shooting at T.I.'s concert, T.I. is very clear -- he ain't saying crap about it, but he will pray like a mother about it.

We asked Tip about Troy Ave's attempted murder indictment for opening fire last month at the NYC concert. As a convicted felon, he had a lot to say about how Troy can pull through the case.

Check out the clip ... T.I.'s silence on the actual shooting reminds us of the ole saying: Snitches get stitches, while guys who've done time on gun charges get real religious.

EXCLUSIVE

0620-kylie-jenner-tmzKylie Jenner has an admirer so desperate to get at her, he's tried to bust through her security gate multiple times ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the uninvited man showed up at The Oaks -- the gated community where Kylie, Khloe and Rob Kardashian all live -- and told security guards he was there for a meeting with Kylie.

When guards turned him away ... the man rammed into the gate, cracked it and then sped away.

We're told he returned a couple weeks later and pulled the same routine -- once again cracking the gate and fleeing, but it wasn't a clean getaway.

Security cameras captured his license plate, and cops tracked him down. We're told they interviewed the guy, and he admitted to ramming the gate out of frustration because the guards were "rude."

He's now been charged with 2 misdemeanor charges of vandalism.

As we've reported, Kylie is selling the house -- and after several creepy situations ... we're told all potential buyers have to go through heavy vetting. One source said it's now like "getting into Fort Knox."

EXCLUSIVE

0620-one-twelve-band-q-parker-INSTAGRAM-01Q Parker from 112 came under siege on Father's Day when his expensive ride was snatched during an ATL pit stop.

The singer tells TMZ it all went down Sunday morning on his way home from the airport after a show in Philly. He pulled into a gas station in College Park, Georgia to check a tire that was low on air. 

He says, out of nowhere, someone jumped into the driver's seat. Q says he tried to make his way back into the car, but the thief -- who Q says looked 14 -- floored it and took off.

The $90k Audi A8 is still missing, and there are no suspects ... but there's a popular 14-year-old out there.

Breaking News

0620-david-crosby-tmz-01The jogger who rock legend David Crosby hit with his car ... is getting $3 million to settle a lawsuit.

Jose Luquin sued Crosby over last year's accident in California's wine country ... where the singer, doing 55 mph in a Tesla, hit Luquin as he was jogging with his 14-year-old son. Luquin suffered a broken leg, arm, and shoulder and also damaged a kidney.

As we reported ... Crosby himself called 911, and told responding officers he had not been drinking.

However, in the lawsuit filed by Luquin's attorney James McKiernan ... Luquin claimed Crosby had ingested "alcohol and/or prescription drugs and/or non-prescription drugs and/or other intoxicants and hallucinogens."

In the settlement -- first reported by CalCoastNews.com -- Crosby did not cop to being intoxicated. Luquin is getting $2,950,000 and his son is getting $50,000.

It's unclear if that's coming out of Crosby's pocket or his insurance company. We've reached out to Crosby's camp ... no word back.
