Amber Rose Oh, I OWN Ace of Diamonds ... I Have Receipts!!

2/24/2017 11:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose isn't sweating the lawsuit accusing her of lying about buying Ace of Diamonds strip club because she's getting a trademark to back her up ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs, Amber formed a corporation called Ace of Diamonds, Inc. and back in December filed for a trademark on the name, as well as the abbreviation "AoD." The docs say the trademark will be for "entertainment services in the nature of live dance performances" and "gentlemen's clubs featuring exotic dancing."

It hasn't been stamped and approved just yet, but she's clearly confident she's going to get it. It also explains why she blurted it out at the All Def Movie Awards.

As we first reported, the current owners of the club say Amber doesn't own a damn thing, and they've filed a $1 million slander suit against her.

Amber's trademark could face an uphill battle because the current AoD has been operating for years, which carries legal weight. Still, she's pressing ahead ... telling us she's opening a new location in a month and a half -- still on Monday nights.

EXCLUSIVE

0224-jose-fernandez-marriage-cert-launch-02

We now know why Jose Fernandez's marital status was listed as divorced in his death certificate -- he wasn't even old enough to drink when he got married back in 2012.

TMZ Sports did some digging and according to the marriage license we've obtained ... Jose and Alejandra Baleato Marichal got married in December 2012 in Tampa, Fla. They were both 20 when they tied the knot.

According to court records ... the marriage lasted only 18 months.

We broke the story ... Jose's death certificate listed him as having been divorced. We knew he had a pregnant girlfriend at the time of his tragic boating accident, but knew nothing about an earlier marriage.

According to a Tampa Bay Times article ... Jose and Alejandra met while still in high school.

We got these shots of the celebs in NYC returning Thursday from a getaway in his fancy sports car. Diane was all smiles as Norman unloaded the whip. Who knew Porsches had that kinda cargo space?!

Kruger and "The Walking Dead" star have been tight since early 2016 -- even before she split from Joshua Jackson -- but now it looks like they've taken the next step.

EXCLUSIVE

0224-jose-fernandez-death-certificate-TMZ-GETTY-03

Jose Fernandez was divorced at one point in his life, but it's unclear to whom he was married ... according to his death certificate.

TMZ Sports obtained the document and his marital status is crystal clear -- DIVORCED. It's interesting ... we know Jose had a pregnant girlfriend when he died last September in a tragic boating accident. The fact he'd been married before didn't come out previously.

The death certificate also confirms the Marlins pitcher's body was found in the ocean at 3:15 AM. He was cremated in Fort Lauderdale.

Jose was 24.

Chris Brown Don't Ask Me About Karrueche's Domestic Violence Claims

2/24/2017 6:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown was partying Thursday night with a Karrueche look-alike, but he was in no mood to talk about the real Karrueche's claim he brutalized her and threatened to kill her.

Chris was leaving 1 OAK when our photog asked about Karrueche's restraining order, in which she claims he has punched her, pushed her down the stairs and threatened to shoot her. She also claimed he's been warning people if he couldn't have her, no one could.

Milo Yiannopoulos Sorry, Haters ... I Have a Plan to Stay in the U.S.

2/24/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223_milo-yiannopoulos_gettyWhen Milo Yiannopoulos quit Breitbart News the clock started ticking on his employment visa, but sadly, for his millions of haters ... he's already figured out a way to stay in America.

Milo is here under an O-1 visa for "aliens of extraordinary ability" -- his being journalism, we're guessing -- but without a U.S. employer to sponsor him, he'd be deported in 60 days. Sources in Milo's camp tell us he's not sweating deportation, because he's lined up a new sponsor.

We're told the people behind a secret new media venture Milo will be working with have agreed in principle to file the necessary paperwork. It's not a done deal yet, but as usual ... Milo's cocky confident he'll close the deal.

On the heels of taking multiple L's -- resigning from his senior editor gig at Breitbart, losing a book deal and a national speaking role -- Milo's trying to bounce back by releasing his book through a new publisher.

Long story short -- we're most likely stuck with him, America.

Neil deGrasse Tyson New Planets Could Have Life But ... If Not, Blame the Dwarf!

2/24/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson says there's a chance the newly discovered cluster of Earth-sized planets could harbor life, but there's something big (yet small) they haven't told you about.

Dr. Tyson told us the science community is ecstatic over NASA's discovery. Truth is, even non-scientists are geeking out. Sooo ... here's the bad news.

The 'Cosmos' host has issues with the sun. Not ours, but the red dwarf star next to the newfound planets ... because it's creating a seriously hostile environment. Neil's explanation is awesome!

Better news? He's got a great idea about naming the cluster, as long as Disney doesn't get in the way.

Usain Bolt Welcome to Trinidad ... Take Our Women!

2/24/2017 6:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Usain Bolt got a sweet welcome to Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago -- a human sacrifice ... on the dance floor!

The world's fastest man jumped onstage at a concert called TRIBE Ignite, and yelled ... "I love this country so much!" Trini obviously loves him back because the MC quickly offered him "something special" ... with much junk in her trunk.

It was immediately clear this ain't Usain's first rodeo!  

No sign of his longtime gf during this awesome display, but we hear she is on the island too.

One way or another ... there will be daggering!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Blasts Kyrie Irving Stop With the Flat Earth Stupidity!!

2/24/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a message for Kyrie Irving ... KEEP YOUR DUMB FLAT EARTH BS OUTTA SCIENCE ... saying the world would be a better place if Irving sticks to the court.

Irving caused a stir earlier this week when he appeared on a podcast and said -- completely seriously -- that the earth is flat. That's right kids, your favorite point guard is a flat earther.

We talked to Tyson, one of the smartest men on earth, and he told us he has zero problem with Irving's outrageous claim, as long as Kyrie never does anything remotely having to do with scientific thought.

Bonus shade? Tyson gives us a suggestion of what should happen to every single flat earther left on the surface of this round planet ... and it's pretty hilarious.

'RHOC' Star Vicki Gunvalson I Caught New Hire Stealing Big $$$ ... Cops Investigating

2/24/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-vicki-gunvalson-tmz-01Vicki Gunvalson says she caught an employee red-handed stealing thousands of dollars from her business and reported him to the police.

Sources close to the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tell us she recently noticed huge discrepancies in the books of her insurance brokerage -- a few thousand dollars at least. We're told she did some digging, and it led to a guy who was hired just 2 months ago.

Our sources say Vicki believes the employee embezzled sales commissions to his personal account and poached clients from Vicki's son, Mike, who's a VP at the brokerage.

We're told Vicki canned the guy, and filed a police report 2 weeks ago. Law enforcement sources tell us they've opened an investigation.

'Moonlight' Kid Hey, Will Smith ... Holla at Ya Boy!

2/23/2017 4:33 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Moonlight" star Jaden Piner has 2 huge goals for his first Oscar night -- getting next to one of those golden statues AND meeting with Will Smith. He's only prepared for one of those.

Jaden plays the kid version of one of the main characters, and just flew in for the award show. The 13-year-old told us he's ready for his close-up if his movie takes Best Picture, but he seems way more intimidated to meet big Willie.

By the way, kid's got the Hollywood spiel down pat already ... based on his Oscar prediction. He also knows all the right answers when dad's within earshot. His response when our photog asked about dating 7th grade girls is classic!

We predict big things for Jaden.
