Lindsay Lohan

Down to the Wire ...

Community Service Completed!

1/28/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan Completes Community Service
Lindsay Lohan will get a letter of completion from her London community service center ... but it will still be warm off the photocopy machine when her lawyer hands it to the judge.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Community Service Volunteers will certify Lindsay has completed her 240 hours to satisfy her probation requirement in her reckless driving case. 

As we reported ... Lindsay waited until the last minute to get it done, and she put in her time at a breakneck pace beginning late last week. 

There's one thing that's unclear ... whether she completed her hours on Tuesday or whether she has a few left that she'll do Wednesday before the court hearing. Since London is 8 hours ahead of L.A. she has the full day to finish if she hasn't already.   

We're told CSV is prepared to send a letter of completion before her court hearing Wednesday morning.

Lindsay was supposed to complete her hours November 6, but she had only performed 102 hours of the 240.  

Lindsay will not be in court. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will hand the sacred doc to the judge.

Jimmy Fallon

Had Him a Blast With ...

Drunken 'Grease' Sing-Along

EXCLUSIVE

012715_jimmy_fallon_launchJimmy Fallon relived his famous send-off from "SNL" -- singing a "Grease" classic -- but this time he had a barroom full of hammered backup singers ... which just made it more awesome.

Fallon was at NYC's Marie's Crisis Cafe last weekend when most of the bar started singing "Summer Nights" ... with Jimmy leading the chorus. But check out the video -- it wasn't easy keeping the buzzed crowd on the beat ... or the right lyrics. 

Jimmy still managed to bring down the house, just like in his final "SNL" in 2004 -- where we're guessing there was slightly less drinking than in the bar.

Donald Trump
's hotel is being sued by an African American man who says his bosses put a razor to his neck with an ultimatum ... shave or get out of town.

Bryan Lambert claims in a new lawsuit he worked as a security guard at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in NYC. He says his bosses got on his case because he wasn't clean shaven. But Lambert says he had a good excuse ... he suffers from Folliculitis Barbae Traumatica -- aka Barber's itch.

Lambert says he tried explaining it's a common condition among black males ... which causes painful inflammation from ingrown hairs which is made worse when you shave. But he says his bosses didn't want to hear it.

And this is choice ... he claims one of his bosses even said, "You are not special. Why can't you look more like Christine?" -- a female Asian-American woman who works the front desk.

He then throws in the kitchen sink with various allegations that he was threatened, disparaged and even had his locker vandalized.

Lambert wants a cool mil minimum. 

The Donald -- who was not sued -- wasn't available for comment.

What do a 7'0" center for the Denver Nuggets and a 5'10" safety for the Houston Texans have in common?

A love of dat ass ...

Cause JaVale McGee (the center) and D.J. Swearinger (the safety) were both at a L.A. strip club this past Monday CRUSHING it ... showing more than $16K on some of the hard working ladies.

The two stars hit up Ace Of Diamonds in L.A. -- the hottest new shake spot in the city -- and from what we're told the two went BANANAS inside the joint, spending some serious green on the ta-ta talent.

For those keeping count, our booty club sources say JaVale -- who makes about $12 mil-a-year -- dropped around $10K while D.J. -- who "only" banks about $800K a year -- precipitated an impressive $6K.

It ain't trickin' if you got it ...

'BGC' Star Judi Jackson

Yes, My Customers Got Screwed ...

But Let's Makeup

EXCLUSIVE

Bad girls Club Judi Jackson Makeup"Bad Girls Club" star Judi Jackson is getting pounded by the Better Business Bureau for allegedly leaving a ton of customers in the lerch -- so, now she's firing up the bus and throwing it in reverse.

BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP

Jackson tells TMZ ... Kissable Vixen was flooded with orders over the holidays -- which seems like it would be good news. However, she says they were out of supplies and intended to shut down for a 2-week hiatus while they restocked. 

Jackson says the problems started when she couldn't get into the company's computer to warn customers about delays -- and she blames that on her business partner giving her bum passwords.  

We contacted the business partner -- whom Jackson says she ripped for the screwup -- and she acknowledged things got out of control because she'd been "hella busy."

We're told the BBB is still investigating the complaints -- but both JJ and her partner claim they've got things running smoothly again.

Sly Stone

Wins Millions

In Family Stone Royalties

EXCLUSIVE

Sly Stone
just scored $5 million thanks to a L.A. jury, which ruled the psychedelic funk singer was done wrong by a former manager who pilfered his fortune.

When Sly was on the skids, his former manager allegedly convinced him to sign over all his royalties to a company the manager picked ... for tax reasons. Sly says the manager assured him he'd be protected.

But Sly says the manager fleeced him, and apparently the jury agreed. The company that got the royalties must pay the frontman of Sly & the Family Stone $2.5 MIL. The manager, Jerry Goldstein, must ante up $2.45 MIL. And the lawyer who worked with Goldstein has to kick in 50K.

Sly has been destitute with severe drug problems ... living in his van.

Enrique Iglesias

Sued for Robo de Musica

Over 'Bailando'

EXCLUSIVE

Enrique Iglesias
is getting credit and A LOT of money for his smash hit, "Bailando," but according to 2 songwriters he stole it right out from under them.

Cristian Escuti and German Schulz claim they cut a track called "Quiero Bailar Contigo" back in 2009. They say they sent it to a Sony exec in 2012 but never heard back. 

Fast forward to 2014, when Enrique released "Bailando," which the songwriters say is a direct rip-off of their tune. They say Sony had partial ownership in the song and they believe there was a musical conspiracy to jack their song. 

The 2 songwriters say the chorus line, melody, lyrics and rhythm were lifted from their song.

What's especially galling to them ... "Bailando" became Enrique's biggest song off his latest album, "Sex and Love" and has been viewed 686 MILLION times on YouTube.

Here's a clip of Enrique's song. We asked Schulz and Escuti's attorney for their song, but he says his clients won't let him send it to us.

Grammy's Sue

You Can't Sell Our Tickets to Joe Blow!

1/27/2015 1:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0127_grammy_awards
The only riff raff the Grammy's want at its ceremony a week from Sunday is the singer, and maybe not even him ... and that's the basis of a new lawsuit.

The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences claims VIP Concierge has somehow gotten hold of some of the tickets and is hawking them online.  

The Academy claims in the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- the tickets are not transferable and anyone who buys them will be unceremoniously thrown out of Staples Center.

But it doesn't end there. According to the lawsuit, VIP Concierge has been advertising the tickets with a pic of the Gramophone logo and the phrase, "Music's Biggest Night."

The website doesn't say how much a ticket will set you back ... that's all backroom stuff.

The Academy is asking a judge for an order declaring VIP legally out of bounds, and they want some cash for their troubles.

They say when God closes a door, he opens a window -- and for Josh Gordon, that door is being an NFL star receiver ... but the window is selling Fords in Randolph, Ohio.

Gordon is facing a possible one-year suspension for allegedly failing another drug and alcohol test. 

But TMZ Sports has learned he's already got a plan B, if he wants it  -- his old job hawking cars and SUVs for Sarchione Auto Group is once again available. If you remember, Gordon worked there in 2014 during his 10 game suspension ... and Senior Sales Associate Mike Sabatine says the dealership would love to have him back.

Despite Josh's repeated troubles with pot and booze -- Sabatine says he never saw Josh drink or smoke, and says the guy he knew busted his ass on the job "just like the rest of us."

Gordon's suspension is not official yet. He can still appeal, but chances are ... he should start brushing up on Ford's 2015 models.

No Skate Zone

At LAX Baggage Claim

EXCLUSIVE

Rae Sremmurd Airport VideoThe guys of Rae Sremmurd are 19 and 21 years old, but they act like they're 12 ... as evidenced by the hijinks they got into while waiting for their bags at LAX ... which even got them into trouble with airport security.

The "No Flex Zone" rappers (Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy) looked like kids who escaped their mother ... as one rode a skateboard and the other rode the baggage carousel. It was just good-natured fun, but one security guard actually got on the loudspeaker to calm them down! 

When it came time to finally chat with our photog, the fellas claimed their music is capable of raising the dead ... literally!

Ah, to be young and rich ...

Snowmageddon has NYC in a state of emergency so Lorne Michaels isn't taking chances ... he said "no" to the snow and shelled out big bucks to put the "Saturday Night Live" staff up in swanky digs.

Some bridges and tunnels are closed until Wednesday and Tuesday is make-or-break ... it's the day they start writing the skits selected for this week's show. So Michaels and "SNL" offered to put the cast up at The New York Palace. 

We're told around 15 cast and crew members signed up for the upscale digs close to 30 Rock, including Kenan Thompson, Colin Jost and a few writers.  

It's just like they say, the snow show must go on. 

Travis Tritt

I'm Still Pissed at the Cowboys

They Screwed Over a Legend

1/27/2015 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012715_travis_tritt_launchTalk about holding a grudge ... country music superstar Travis Tritt says he REFUSES to root for the Dallas Cowboys ever again -- all because of something that went down 26 years ago.  

Tritt was leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills Monday night when he told us he's still bitter at Jerry Jones for the way he axed legendary head coach Tom Landry back in 1989. 

FYI -- Jones had JUST bought the team when he rushed in and blew out the entire Cowboys coaching staff ... a move Landry (and scores of Dallas fans) felt was completely disrespectful. 

Tritt says he never got over it ... and btw, neither did Landry -- who rooted for the rival NY Giants until his death in 2000.
