Michelle Obama $12k Versace for Final State Dinner

10/19/2016 7:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_michelle_obama_versace_gown_launchMichelle Obama's going out with a VERY expensive bang.

The First Lady's body was straight fire -- with all due respect -- in a form-fitting custom-made rose gold Versace gown during President Obama's final State Dinner Tuesday night.

Michelle and Barack were hosting the Italian Prime Minister and his wife -- so, maybe she went Versace just to make them feel at home. But more likely ... she just loved the couture. 

The evening was topped off with a duet from Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton.

Ed Hardy's Christian Audigier Sorry, Kids ... I Left My Sperm Behind!!!

10/19/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_Christian-Audigier-tmzEd Hardy's late, great designer, Christian Audigier, left his $250 million fortune to his wife and 4 kids ... but if any kids are born from the sperm he left behind, they also get a piece of the pie.

Yes, sperm is front and center in the the legal docs filed with the court. Nathalie Sorensen, Christian's widow, has dibs on the sperm and can "use however she sees fit."

Nathalie was Christian's longtime GF and married him on his death bed.

Here's the rub. If Nathalie uses the sperm to have kids, they will get the same share of the estate as Christian's living children, which means with each baby they get less.

Nathalie hasn't said whether she'll grow the fam, so for now the sperm sits in a freezer at a cryobank, and his children worry.

Kate Hudson Fashion Line Ex-Employee Sues ... I Was Fired for Going to Rehab!

Breaking News



2:48 PM PT -- A rep for TechStyle Fashion Group, which owns JustFab and Fabletics, tells TMZ ... the company finds the claims against it baseless and meritless, and plans to defend itself in court. They add ... "Please know that we take the welfare of our employees extremely seriously and strive to create a happy and healthy workplace."


Kate Hudson's online retailer fired one of its workers for trying to treat a sleeping pill addiction ... so says the ex-employee suing the company. 

Talitha Peters just filed suit against Fabletics and parent company JustFab, who she says wrongfully terminated her after a 2-year tenure as an exec ... after her bosses assumed she was addicted to illegal drugs. 

In the docs filed by Rosen Saba, LLP -- obtained by TMZ -- Peters says she became disabled after getting addicted to Ambien from work-related issues. She says she eventually needed medical leave to go to rehab, and claims she got it without questions at first. 

But when Peters tried extending the absence, she claims Fabletics execs started digging into why she needed it ... allegedly prying for private medical info. On the day she was set to return to work this June, Peters says her boss fired her for made-up reasons. 

Peters claims Fabletics discriminated against her disability and retaliated based on faulty intel ... now she's suing for damages. 

Kate Hudson is not named in the lawsuit -- but she is a co-founder of Fabletics. We've reached out to Kate and JustFab for comment ... so far, no word back. 

Kardashian's Dash Store Sued I See You Don't Like Blind Customers ...

10/16/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-dash-logoThe Kardashian's Dash store refuses to do business with the blind ... treating them as second-class citizens ... so claims a blind man who's suing the joint.

Andres Gomez says he's legally blind and uses screen reader software to access the Internet. But the software continually came up empty when he tried browsing Dash store's website. He says the site contains barriers and Dash is well aware but refuses to fix it.

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are not named defendants in the suit.

Gomez accuses the store of violating the American with Disabilities Act because Dash's website fails to sync with his screen reader software and provides no other access for blind customers.

Gomez is suing to get Dash's website to comply with federal law and he also wants cash.

We've reached out to Dash, so far no word back.

'Hamilton' 'Not Throwing Away My Shot' At Suing Over Stolen Logo!

10/7/2016 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007-lin-manuel-miranda-getty-sunfrog-01The logo for "Hamilton: An American Musical" is now so iconic, it's become a target for rip-off artists ... according to producers behind the massive Broadway hit.

The head honchos of the company that runs all things 'Hamilton' just filed suit against t-shirt makers, SunFrog, for hawking bootleg 'Hamilton' shirts on their site.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- 'Hamilton' heads say SunFrog and a company called GearLaunch are using the famous silhouetted image of Alexander without permission.

Lawyers for the musical aren't buying GearLaunch's excuse -- that they assume freelance t-shirt designers have legally obtained rights to all the images beforehand.

They're suing to halt all sales and marketing of the alleged phony merch, and to get all profits.

SunFrog's legal team tells us, "As an online platform and service provider, there may be instances where user-generated content on our platform doesn't fully comply with either our terms and conditions or intellectual property law in general."

However, they say they do take intellectual property rights very seriously.
