Kanye West Nothing's Easy-Yeezy ... Battle's On for Brand Name

3/21/2018 5:26 PM PDT

Kanye West might have to strap on his fightin' shoes ... because a company has come out of nowhere to compete for the right to use his Yeezy nickname.

According to new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Kanye's company was outmaneuvered by a Chinese company that swooped in and filed trademark paperwork in an effort to stake its claim to the popular Yeezy brand name.

Kanye's company has owned the name Yeezy for footwear since 2013, but for whatever reason abandoned the trademark for other clothing items besides shoes in 2017. The Chinese company -- listed as Fujian Baby Network Technology Co. -- seized the opportunity by immediately filing trademark paperwork for the term "Yeezy Boost" for its clothing products.

The rapper's company then refiled its application for Yeezy clothing, but the trademark office said not so fast ... because the Chinese company now has dibs.

The good news -- Kanye shouldn't have to worry about this affecting Yeezy sneakers, but if he wants to branch out and start making mittens or even g-strings ... he might be in for a legal battle.

Mel B In Case You Forget ... I'm a Spice Girl!!!

3/20/2018 4:01 PM PDT

Mel B's so obsessed with being in the Spice Girls, you might say it's scary ... and if you didn't say it, her wardrobe spells it out. 

Mel was out in WeHo Tuesday wearing a pink coat emblazoned with her Spice name ... Scary. There were a few clues for anyone walking behind Mel, too -- the back of the jacket's bedazzled with the famous line "ZIGA ZIG HA" from their huge hit, "Wannabe." 

Mel was hanging with her hairdresser pal, Gary Madatyan, near BOA Steakhouse when she was photographed in the throwback uni, which is about to be all the rage again. 

We broke the story ... Mel and the rest of the Spice Girls signed with their old manager, Simon Fuller, and have agreed to reunite for a tour later this year.  

Blac Chyna & BF Fri$ky Bu$ine$$

3/20/2018 9:52 AM PDT

Blac Chyna went on a shopping spree to satisfy her shoe fetish, but her 18-year-old BF didn't come away empty handed, either.

BC, who is 29, and Houston rapper YBN Almighty Jay hit up Saks Fifth Avenue Monday in Bev Hills ... and she beelined it for the women's shoe department to try on multiple pairs of glitzy kicks.

YBN kept busy, holding on to stacks o' cash -- but we don't know if it was his, or if he was just holding for her. He was definitely holding on to BC's famous ass, though. 

After some serious PDA, they hopped in BC's Ferrari with huge shopping bags in tow.


Kanye West Clothing Company Sued You Ripped Off Our Camo Gear

3/15/2018 12:48 PM PDT

Kanye West's clothing company is being sued for allegedly ripping off camouflage patterns from a competing company.

Yeezy Apparel and Unknwn are being sued by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises over camo hoodies, camo thigh-high boots, cargo pants, hooded bomber jackets, shirts, boots and other stuff.

The lawsuit claims Jordan has distinctive markings on its Realtree line and Kanye's companies ripped them off. 

Kanye's companies have used Kim Kardashian to model some of the gear.

According to the lawsuit, a rep from Yeezy contacted Jordan to discuss using the camo patterns, but when the folks at Jordan said Kanye's company needed to license the items, they went radio silent and then without authorization they went ahead and copied the patterns.

Jordan is asking a judge not only for damage, but to stop Kanye's company in their tracks from continuing to sell the items in question and to turn over and destroy the items that already exist. 

Ezekiel Elliott Sneaker Shopping Spree!!! ... Beats Partying, Right??

3/15/2018 11:47 AM PDT

Ezekiel Elliott's been spotted in the wild for the first time this offseason ... but don't worry, Cowboys fans -- he's out coppin' shoes, not booze.

We got Zeke in Beverly Grove right after the superstar RB and his BFF, Alvarez Jackson, went absolutely HAM at high-end sneaker joint SoleStage. 

Elliott wasn't feeling chatty -- but we're guessing he was in a pretty good mood based on his battalion of shopping bags.

FYI, SoleStage's average kicks will run you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars ... so Zeke was raining stacks, no question. 

But, again -- good to see the guy doing chiller activities like this ... especially considering he was PARTYING HIS FACE OFF at this time last year.

Happy almost St. Paddy's Day!!!

Eric Dane Doctor's Got a Brand New Bag

3/14/2018 7:14 AM PDT

Eric Dane might be having a major blonde moment in the wake of him and his wife filing for divorce -- that, or he's just really feeling himself ... we're not sure. 

The "Grey's Anatomy" star was spotted rockin' a brand new 'do Tuesday in WeHo -- combed up and to the side ... and a bit more bleached than what we're used to seeing. He was also wearing a pair of cool sunglasses, with a very cool coat. Ladykiller, are we right?

We broke the story ... Eric's wife of 14 years, Rebecca Gayheart, filed for divorce last month, and Eric responded with a very similar filing. He agreed to her spousal support request, as well as her bid to gain joint legal and physical custody of their 2 kids.

Now that most of the dirty work appears to be settled ... time to get back to channeling McSteamy.

Farrah Abraham Goes Down at Fashion Show Lights, Camera, Action!!!

3/13/2018 7:12 AM PDT

Farrah Abraham on all four is par for the course ... except not in front of hundreds of peeps at a fashion show. Somewhere, a casting director's light bulb probably just flashed.

The former 'Teen Mom' star, her daughter Sophia and a bunch of her friends hit up The MacArthur Monday night for the Art Hearts Fashion show in L.A. All seemed to be going as planned ... everyone looking to the nines. Then Farrah started trippin' ... literally.

Farrah took a hard spill walking up the stairs ... and judging from everyone's sheer shock, Farrah went down hard and fast. Hard to tell ... but looks like the culprit coulda been her shoelaces. And when you're Farrah, you've apparently got friends in low places ... who can come down and tighten those shoelaces.

Just when ya thought it was safer to walk, right?

Kate Upton Declines Interview In Paul Marciano Sexual Assault Investigation

3/12/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Kate Upton has refused to be interviewed by a lawyer who was hired by the Special Committee of the Board Directors of Guess to investigate her claim Chief Creative Officer Paul Marciano sexually assaulted her.

Upton had said publicly she would cooperate with the Guess investigation, but then changed her position when she learned the law firm that was involved in the probe was Marciano's personal law firm. She called it "smoke and mirrors" and a "PR stunt to impress shareholders."

TMZ has learned the Special Committee hired Glaser Weil, a high-powered L.A. law firm that has no ties to Guess or Marciano, to conduct the investigation. Marciano's personal firm is now out of the picture.

Our sources say attorney Patty Glaser contacted Upton's lawyer and asked if Upton would now sit for an interview. We're told Upton's lawyer said his client would not do the interview with Glaser because some of the information in the probe was already gathered by Marciano's law firm, so the investigation was tainted.

We're told Glaser assured the lawyer she was the only one in charge of the investigation, she had no preconceptions and wanted to be fair to both sides. Her lawyer didn't budge ... at least not so far.

Upton has claimed Marciano grabbed her breasts and forcibly kissed her neck and face, among other things, during a photo shoot in 2010.

Marciano is currently on hiatus from Guess after a number of other women lodged complaints.

Chris Darden Hey Kanye, You Happy Now OJ was Freed?

3/11/2018 8:11 PM PDT

Chris Darden is incredulous Kanye West would dare sport a "Free OJ" t-shirt, especially now that he has flat-out confessed to the murders of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson on the Fox special.

Darden was on a panel that discussed OJ's belated mea culpa and he's livid at the naysayers who fought for Simpson's freedom.  He says the people who should have unbridled anger are the Goldmans and the Browns, but Chris's outrage is right there.

He says he saw Kanye on TV wearing the t-shirt and had words for him. And the words are on point and chilling ... "You freed him ... and look at what you freed." 

Simpson talked on the special about the murders, at first hypothetically, but then he lapsed into first person and it leaves no doubt ... even for the naysayers.

3/11/2018 12:50 AM PST

Kendall and Kylie Jenner got an eviction notice because someone royally screwed up ... and now the leasing company's apologizing for the goof.

You might recall there were reports Kendall and Kylie's company got slapped with a notice at their NYC office ... claiming the sisters had fallen behind on rent to the tune of more than $57k and had 5 days to pay or get the hell out.

But, a rep for the leasing company tells TMZ ... it never should have happened. The company says, "There was a miscommunication due to a change in invoice procedures that led to this confusion. We apologize for any negative press the Kendall + Kylie brand has received."

The leasing company went on to say, "They have always been respectful and in good standing tenants."

Case closed.

Kris Jenner Stumped After Paps Make Her Laugh!!!

3/8/2018 6:47 AM PST

Kris Jenner tried answering our questions with a straight face. She did at first, but then we had her cracking up ... then just baffled.

Kris and her bf, Corey Gamble, hit up Mr Chow Wednesday night in Bev Hills and we wanted to know -- who's better at baseball? You'll recall we got the Kardashian brood at a ballpark hitting line drives.

The momager -- who btw is wearing a Gucci mink coat that retails for $58k -- quickly answered. But, check out what she's got to say when we ask her if Travis and Kylie should move in together. It was a case of the giggles ... again.

Then, the big one -- would the Kardashians ever cryogenically freeze themselves? Uhhh.
