Gucci Sued My Manager Whipped It Out ... And You Did Nothing!!!

10/3/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

What's Gucci? Oh, just rampant sexual harassment at one of its high-end stores ... so claims an ex-employee in a new lawsuit.

Chanel Falasco is suing the giant luxury brand claiming her manager at the downtown Chicago store followed her into a storage room and pulled out his penis. According to the suit, he also bombarded her with crude comments about her ass and gave her the nickname ... "booty." 

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Falasco says the manager tried kissing her and grabbed her by the neck, torso and ass. She claims in 2015 she was mortified when he pulled down his pants in the storage room ... and told her to perform oral sex on him, or "at least just touch it."

Falasco says she complained to a higher-up, but Gucci didn't do nearly enough to address the situation ... especially because it knew the manager had behaved inappropriately with other employees before.

She's suing for unspecified damages. We reached out to Gucci ... they had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's not letting her baby news get in the way of her dolled up lifestyle ... which is now steeped in "plastic" for the low cost of about $9,999.99.

Our Kylie sources tell TMZ the expecting Kardashian sister dropped around $10k for a hot pink neon sign that says "PLASTIC" ... which she recently hung up in her Glam Room and showcased on social media.

We're told Kylie bought the 48x13 art piece from contemporary artist Beau Dunn about a month ago, and it was just installed on Friday. Kylie's bought other art from Beau in the past, and it looks like she's keeping the Barbie theme going for a pretty penny.

Still, that's nothing compared to what she's spending on baby clothes. We broke the story ... Kylie's spending north of $70,000 for some sweet duds for her soon-to-be baby girl

Beau's got a bunch of her artwork featured at the Art Angels Gallery in L.A. ... gotta wonder if she'll be tweaking her vision to channel some of Kylie's latest interests

Supermodel Reunion Claudia, Naomi, Cindy & Helena ... Back at It for Versace!!!

9/22/2017 1:52 PM PDT

Step aside Gigi, Bella and Kendall ... the OGs are back!

Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Helena Christensen and Carla Bruni all showed up at Milan Fashion Week looking as good as gold.

Versace held its SS18 runway Friday in Milan. Yeah, the Hadids and Kendall were there too, but the more experienced ladies definitely stole the show during the finale.

You could call this a passing of the torch -- especially since Cindy's own daughter, Kaia Gerber, was on the catwalk too -- but honestly it looked more like a schooling.

Werk, ladies.

Kylie and Kendall Fire Back in Tupac T-Shirt Lawsuit

9/22/2017 12:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie and Kendall Jenner have just fired back in the lawsuit where a guy who owns a photo of Tupac is going after the women claiming they ripped him off and plastered the image on the t-shirts they were hawking.

Kylie and Kendall say renowned photog Michael Miller has no right to sue because he himself committed some sort of fraud in copyrighting the photo. They say he's neither the author nor creator of the photos. They don't further explain, but it sounds like they're alleging he misrepresented ownership when he filed with the U.S. Copyright Office.

And there's this ... the women claim he's only entitled at best to "thin copyright protection" because his legal rights to the photo are so minimal it doesn't deserve full protection.

That all said, Kylie and Kendall removed the t-shirt from their online store.

They were super cool when we asked about the comparisons, and while Amelia's hoping to follow Gigi and Bella's footsteps on the runway, Delilah points out she's got aspirations that set her apart from the Hadids.

EXCLUSIVE

Some of the most famous photos of Tupac Shakur have been stolen and slapped on shirts at a couple popular retail stores, and the photog wants justice ... according to a new lawsuit.

Chi Modu, known for his portraits of hip-hop artists, claims a merchandising company used his Pac pics without permission to produce a bunch of apparel. According to the docs ... the company then sold the shirts to Urban Outfitters and Macy's, which sold them to the public ... also allegedly without Modu's consent.

The photog wants all the stores' profits from the shirts, along with damages.
