Sofia Vergara Nick Loeb Has No Right to Embryos This War Needs to Stop

2/14/2017 7:03 PM PST

0214_sofia_vergara_NICK-LOEB_tmz-2Sofia Vergara's firing back at her ex, Nick Loeb, for putting her through the legal ringer for more than 2 years over their embryos ... hoping to put an end to the ordeal once and for all.

Sofia's asking the court to officially block Nick from trying to take control of their embryos with the intention of bringing them to term without her consent ... according to legal docs she just filed.

She says Loeb voluntarily dismissed his case against her in December -- after waging legal war with her since 2014 -- to leave the door open to refile his case again. She insists it would just be a waste of time.

According to the docs ... Nick signed a contract about their frozen embryos originally in which his rights were clear -- he CANNOT bring the embryos to term without MUTUAL agreement.

In addition to an order, Sofia wants some money for her troubles.

Breaking News

0214_howard-stern-tmz"The Howard Stern Show" aired a woman's phone conversation with an IRS agent -- revealing tons of personal information -- but she had no idea it was being broadcast and now she's suing.

Judith Barrigas filed a federal lawsuit over the phone call which aired in May 2015 ... she says by absolutely no fault of her own. According to the suit ... she called the IRS to discuss a pending tax case. The agent Barrigas spoke to -- Jimmy Forsythe -- had called into the 'Stern Show' as a listener and was on hold ... while he took her call.

She says 'Stern Show' producers overheard her convo with Forsythe and decided to put it on the air to 1.2 million listeners -- essentially eavesdropping on her very private and sensitive phone call.

Barrigas says she immediately got a barrage of harassing phone calls and texts ... as she had mentioned her phone number during the call with Forsythe.

She's suing the 'Stern Show,' Howard himself and the United States of America ... aka head honcho of the IRS.

Alanis, Kim Sitting Ducks for Thieves Cops Say Social Media is Criminals' Bible

2/14/2017 10:22 AM PST

0214-alanis-morissette-jewelry-photos-launchAlanis Morissette, Kim Kardashian and a bunch of other celebs have turned their social media accounts into a Thomas Guide for criminals who are looking for the most expensive jewelry in town.

Law enforcement sources tell us they believe Instagram and other platforms have become the undoing of famous folks who show off expensive bling. TMZ broke the story, Alanis was just hit by burglars who made off with $2 mil in jewelry.  

No surprise ... Alanis has been posting photos of her bling on various social media platforms and her blog. Some of the rings, bracelets and other jewelry go for thousands and thousands of bucks.

Kim learned her lesson, but a slew of celebs continue to flaunt their wealth on social media.

Cops tell us it's simple for thieves to find out where people live, and by posting pics of jewelry in the home it becomes a roadmap for a quick hit. They say the problem is compounded when celebs post vacation photos in real time, because it's like a neon sign to break in.

Ed Sheeran I Wasn't at the Super Bowl But 'Manager' Still Scored 4 Tix

2/14/2017 12:40 AM PST

0213-ed-sheeran-the-giving-back-fun-TMZ-01Ed Sheeran was the bait in a successful plot to swindle a charity out of 4 primo tickets to Super Bowl 51 ... according to cops trying to track down the scammer.

Marc Pollick -- CEO of The Giving Back Fund -- tells TMZ his charity got a call from someone promising to deliver Ed's singing services for a charity concert on the eve of the big game in Houston. Organizers and cops believe the con artist went so far as to forge Ed's signature on a contract.

0213-ed-sheeran-phony-signature-vs-real-02The deal was Ed would perform 2 songs, and in return he'd get 4 suite tickets to SB51 ... worth $50k. They met the alleged manager before the event and handed him the precious tickets, and never saw him again. Nor did Ed show up at the event.

We're told the charity found out Sheeran was touring in Australia, and got suspicious they'd been screwed. They contacted cops and found out the tickets were re-sold. 

Law enforcement tells us it's got all the makings of a classic scam and the guy behind it could face felony charges. 

We've reached out to Ed's camp, so far no word back.

NFL's Aldon Smith Under Investigation for Domestic Incident

2/13/2017 2:24 PM PST

0213-aldon-smith-getty-2Oakland Raiders star Aldon Smith is being investigated for what we're told is a domestic incident ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sources tell us cops in San Francisco were called early Saturday morning and responded to a home in the city. Smith owns a house in San Francisco.

Police interviewed Smith and the alleged victim and took a report. The case is under "active investigation."

Smith has not been arrested. 

An arrest would be catastrophic for Smith's career -- he's currently suspended by the NFL for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. 

Smith was expected to be reinstated in March, on the assumption he stayed out of trouble. An arrest could undo his prospects.

Smith has had several run-ins with police since he was drafted by the 49ers back in 2011. 

Smith showed extreme potential when he was on the field -- he was the NFC Defensive Player of the Year back in 2012. 

A rep for Smith had no comment.

Jeffrey Sandusky allegedly texted his underage accuser asking for naked photos and shots of her "taking a piss" ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

The report mentions 2 accusers (referred to as "Victim #1" and "Victim #2") who are sisters. Sandusky was dating their mother.

Victim #1 claims in 2016, Sandusky made several secret inappropriate sexual advances toward her -- many of them over text message.

She claims in the report Sandusky asked for pictures of her "boobs" and explained "it's not weird because he studied medicine."

Also in the report, she claims Sandusky also asked for her to send photos of her "in the morning when she is dressing for school" and also "while she is changing or taking a 'piss,' etc."

Victim #1 told police she informed her mother about the incidents months later and she threw Sandusky out of the house. Victim #1 claims Sandusky apologized and said he knew his actions were wrong.

Victim #1 claims she told her older sister who said Sandusky had been texting her similar stuff back in 2013 and asked her for oral sex. The police report says Victim #2 claims she did have sexual intercourse with Sandusky when she was 15 and he was 37.

Victim #1 claims her sister was furious when she found out about Sandusky's alleged behavior and "tore into him." She claims he tried to explain his way out of it.

District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller has issued a statement saying, "All children have a right to feel safe. We will prosecute this case aggressively as we do all child abuse cases."

2/13/2017 10:15 AM PST

0210-cash-me-ousside-logo-infringement"Cash Me Ousside" girl is getting Hanes all in a bunch after she allegedly ripped off one of the company's best-selling brands for her own merchandise ... TMZ has learned.

Danielle Bregoli and her mom got an angry letter Friday from Hanesbrands Inc. -- which owns Champion sportswear -- because it's pissed about a "Cashmeousside" logo she's slapped on a bunch of gear.

In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Hanes accuses the Bregolis of using the identical stylized "C" it uses for its Champion logo. The company says it needs to protect its "extensive consumer goodwill and reputation." 

Translation: "Cash Me Ousside" ain't spokeswoman material.

Hanes is giving Danielle a week to halt production of any merch using the Champion "C."

Aaaand now there's one more thing for her to regret about that music video for Kodak Black -- the logo in question is all over it.

Mike and Ike Co. Sued Customer Claims Candy Shortage in Boxes

2/13/2017 12:30 AM PST

0210-MIKE-N-IKE-hot-tamale-fun-art-01The company that makes Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales -- candy you buy at the movies -- is shortchanging customers and selling them air ... according to a new lawsuit.

A California woman claims she bought a $4 box of Mike and Ikes at a theater, only to discover it was half full of slack-fill -- 46% air. She says she was tricked by the packaging and never would have bought it had she known it wasn't loaded with candy.

The lady thinks it's a giant conspiracy ... the candy is sold in a glass case to keep her from inspecting it, but even if she had been able to shake it ... she still wouldn't have known the box was half empty.

The woman claims she did her own investigation and found that Hot Tamales boxes have the same deception inside -- half full. She goes on to say a competitor candy company that makes Boston Baked Beans fills its boxes to the brim.

A rep for the candy company tells us it will vigorously defend itself from these "baseless allegations."

Nick Young Takes $700,000 Loss ... After Blowing Off Lawsuit

2/12/2017 12:15 AM PST

0210-nick-young-tmz-01Nick Young has been ordered to pay his ex-manager more than $700,000 after doing the exact WRONG THING one should do when being sued.

Long story short ... the NBA star was sued by Andre Chevalier who claims Nick failed to pay him his 2% commission for his role in securing his fat NBA salary and lucrative endorsement deals.

Nick was served with the papers but never responded, and failed to appear in court to fight the case. 

So the judge -- sick of waiting around -- entered a default judgment in favor of Andre in the amount of $722,558.

Good for that guy, right?

Of course, Nick can still try to fight the case -- but it's definitely an uphill battle.

0210-bryson-tiller-instagramGrammy nominee Bryson Tiller's at the center of a lawsuit between his past and present reps, who are battling over his income now that his career's blowing up.

In a lawsuit, Bryson's ex-manager, Steven J. Dorn, says he got pushed out of his gig by the singer's current lawyer. Dorn says he covered Bryson's living expenses, child support payments, car insurance and secured recording facilities for him. 

He says Bryson agreed to pay him back and then split his future income evenly with him ... according to the docs. Dorn, who's repped by Boris Treyzon, says the whole deal went south in 2015 when Bryson's lawyer gave him his walking papers.

Now, Bryson's hit, "Exchange," is up for best R&B song and Dorn is out in the cold. In the docs, he says there was a conspiracy to cut him out of the picture.

Bryson's not named in the lawsuit ... 'cause why mess with the goose that's laying golden Grammys?
