Fetty Wap to Alexis Sky We Know You Leaked the Sex Tape ... Now Stop It

1/10/2017 2:20 PM PST

0110-fetty-wap-cease-and-desist-launch-01Fetty Wap is serious about getting a sex tape off the Internet ... purportedly featuring him and Alexis Sky -- and he's targeted the person he thinks leaked it ... Dear Alexis, STOP!

TMZ has obtained the cease and desist letters Fetty's legal hounds fired off to Alexis and a bunch of media outlets allegedly posting the video.

Fetty's lawyers threatened Alexis this way ... "[Y]ou must IMMEDIATELY STOP the distribution and/or attempted distribution of this alleged video to any and all media outlets." 

BTW ... he vows to sue her if the video doesn't disappear.

We'll see if he ruffled enough feathers to keep it from spreading any further. 

The Game Cop Punch Trial Delayed Still Has Fights On the Mind

1/9/2017 11:08 AM PST

The Game showed up to court Monday morning expecting to stand trial for slugging an off-duty cop -- but he ended up breaking down Chris Brown and Soulja Boy's upcoming fight.

Game's criminal assault trial for punching LAPD Officer Onyebuchi Awaji in March 2015 was scheduled to start today, but the case was postponed. We got him on his way out of court, and he was all pumped up -- about the new year, and about watching Chris and Soulja get in a boxing ring.

Bonus: Game also picked a Streep-Trump death match winner.

As for the fight that landed him in court -- Game already lost the civil case, and was ordered to pay the officer $100k.

The new criminal trial date is set for next month, and this video will be key evidence.

Young Thug Sued Limo Rides To The Stars Ain't Cheap ... And You Owe Us a Check!

12/27/2016 2:53 PM PST

1222-young-thug-tmz-02Young Thug got chauffeured around Hollywood like a big shot this summer, but stiffed the limo company like a bum ... according to a new lawsuit. 

Hollywood Stars Limousine just filed suit against the Atlanta rapper for allegedly skipping out on a fat bill for rides they say they gave him ... to the tune of $18,676. 

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Hollywood Stars claims they drove Young Thug and some of his guests around for a total of 11 times this year -- with 10 of those happening in June. 

The company says they gave Thug plenty of time to pay, but claims he told 'em to kick rocks. Now, Hollywood Stars wants a judge to make him pay back their dough in full. 

It's funny ... Young Thug just got arrested last week for ducking a court date on a window tinting offense. Looks like he might be screwed from the other side of the glass too. 

The Game No New Trial For You! Back To The End of The Line ...

12/20/2016 10:18 AM PST

1220-the-game-TMZ-01The Game won't be getting his sexual assault judgment of $7 million reduced, and he won't be getting a new trial either ... for now, at least.

A judge shot down Game's request to reduce the damages he was ordered to pay after losing his sexual assault case ... all over a technicality in how he filed the paperwork.

It looks like Game didn't "present" the motion the right way, and left out important info -- like hearing dates and times ... basic stuff the court needs to even consider the request.

The good news for Game is he can refile the motion -- so he still has a shot to state his case in court, like he originally wanted to do. 

Melania & Barron Trump YouTuber Cashes in With Apology

11/30/2016 7:12 AM PST

1130-barron-trump-melania-trump-GETTY-01The YouTuber who falsely insinuated Melania Trump's son was autistic is redefining chutzpah ... he's making money on his apology.

The guy has ads running on his apology vid, meaning he hasn't turned off the monetization setting -- just a one-click process.

The apology video posted Tuesday has almost 74,000 views as of Wednesday morning, and continues to run ads. 

We broke the story ... Melania and Barron threatened the YouTuber with a lawsuit ... and they called out Rosie O'Donnell for reposting it.

The guy took it down when he felt the Mama Bear's legal heat -- although he waited 24 hours and gained another 1 million views, and more ad revenue, in the process.  

He seemed sincere in his apology/retraction. Now ... we're not so sure.

Bruno Mars You Jacked Our Jam ... Now We're Gonna Funk You Up!!!

10/29/2016 11:10 AM PDT

1029-bruno-mars-tmz-01Bruno Mars' monster hit "Uptown Funk"  is a thinly-veiled replica of a groovy tune back in the day ... and now the OG band is out for blood in court.

Mars and "Uptown Funk" producer Mark Ronson are among many names listed in a lawsuit filed by members from the music group, Collage.  The band released a single in 1983 called "Young Girls" and claim Bruno's Billboard #1 is a dead-on copy in rhythm, harmony, melody and structure.

It's interesting -- Collage claims  Ronson and Mars have been big fans of Minneapolis/1980s electro-funk soul ... of which Collage was a part, along with Prince and others. The suit claims there's reason to believe Ronson and Mars have heard and been influenced by "Young Girls."

The stakes are enormous.  "Uptown Funk" is Mars' biggest song to date ... selling more than 6.1 million copies.  It's the second-longest number-one hit single in Billboard history, and makes the label alone a reported $100k a week via streaming on Spotify.

Collage -- only has one living member -- but he's alive and kicking ... demanding a cut of the profits and a stop to "Uptown Funk."

The Beatles Contract that Bound them Together Up for Auction

9/5/2015 6:18 AM PDT

0905-beatles-contract-launch-01The world would never have enjoyed and been influenced by The Beatles if they didn't sign this contract ... at least that's what an auction house wants you to believe.

It's actually pretty awesome ... a 1962 agreement between John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Star and their manager Brian Epstein.  

The contract give the legendary Epstein wide-ranging power ... authority to choose clothes, make-up and presentation of the group.  It also gives the group power to boot a member if 2 or more want them out.

Right up there with the Magna Carta?  No?
