8/23/2016 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


A bug-infested rental shirt from Men's Wearhouse not only ruined a groom's wedding ... it ruined his life ... this according to a new, must-read lawsuit.

Anthony Elam from Philly tied the knot 2 years ago and got all gussied up for the occasion, courtesy of Men's Wearhouse. He claims just after he put the shirt on, he noticed it was infested by disgusting bugs. A trooper till the end, he wore the shirt and says it "tormented" him during and after the ceremony.

He says he was bitten badly and the injuries described in the lawsuit ... horrendous.

-- bug bites

-- pruritic rash

-- systemic inflammatory response syndrome

-- infection

-- exacerbation of low back pain and/or sciatica

-- other injuries involving ligaments, blood vessels and soft parts

-- permanent shock to his nerves and nervous system

-- pain, agony and serious disfigurement

The suit goes on to say he has suffered emotional distress, depression, mental anguish, humiliation, embarrassment and loss of life's pleasures.

He says he and his wife are unable to work for an indefinite period of time. She's also suing for loss of consortium -- aka sex.

On the other hand, sometimes in life, shirt happens.

Amy Schumer Fur Protesters Crash Book Signing ... Amy Fires Back

8/17/2016 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Animal rights protesters blasted Amy Schumer at her NYC book signing for her decision to sport fur -- but Amy says they've got the wrong idea about her wardrobe. 

This pissed off group busted into the Barnes & Noble where Amy was holding court ... toting signs and shouting at her for wearing a coat this past winter made by Canada Goose -- a company the protesters claim engages in animal cruelty. 

Check out the video we got -- Amy tries to calm them down by being playful, but they didn't back down. Security eventually tossed 'em.

A rep for Amy tells TMZ the whole thing was unfortunate ... especially since the protesters didn't hear her out. The rep says Amy got the jacket as a gift, and once she learned about allegations Canada Goose harms animals ... she hasn't worn it since.

8/17/2016 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-burberry-perry-tmzRapper Burberry Perry might need a new stage name after losing BIG in court -- a judge is ordering him to drop the famous handle ... for the time being.

TMZ broke the story ... Burberry -- the famous luxury apparel line -- sued Perry for jacking the name and using the company's plaid pattern and equestrian knight logo on his album cover.

Perry hasn't lost the case yet -- it's ongoing, but Burberry claimed their brand was being damaged right now, and the judge granted its request for a preliminary injunction. This means Perry has to scrub Burberry from all his social media and remove all references to "Burberry Perry" from his songs.

Perry's taken at least one step -- right after we broke the story, he announced on Twitter he'll be known as The Good Perry.

Or, they're a message for her haters ... eat my ash!

0815-forever-21-swastika-ring-nazi-TWITTER-no-logo-01Forever 21 is getting serious heat for an offensive hoax: swastika ring merchandise.

The clothing company was put on blast by a customer who posted a photo of two swastika rings inside one of its stores.  

A Forever 21 exec tells us the rings are NOT Forever 21 products ... period.

As to how it happened is unclear ... but it appears someone hooked the swastika rings to the back of another product.

Exclusive Details


When Tennessee Titans linebacker Avery Williamson takes the field on Sept. 11th ... he'll be playing with a special set of cleats created to honor those who passed on 9/11. 

The NFL regular season happens to begin on the 15 year anniversary of the terror attacks -- and many of the players are planning to pay tribute to the victims, first responders and other people affected by the tragedy. 

One of those players is Williamson -- who approached cleat customizer Billy Hobbs at True Blue Customs and asked for a special design ... and Hobbs came through strong.  

Hobbs airbrushed a pair of Nike Vapors to resemble the American flag, and added the words "Never Forget" and "9/11" to the back of each cleat. 


Several NFL players have talked about playing on 9/11 -- including NY Jets center Nick Mangold -- who previously said, "It is truly an honor to open the season at home, at MetLife Stadium, on the 15th anniversary of 9/11."

"I know that will be an emotional time for everyone, as it was (on the 10th anniversary) in 2011."

Madonna's son, Rocco, is officially a gold stud.

Madge took her son to Elite Jewelry & Piercing Friday in Manhattan -- 1 day after turning 16. 

We're told Rocco got one of his earlobes pricked with a gold square stud -- $120 for the earring and $15 for the piercing.

Didn't take long -- our spies say mom and son spent about 30 minutes inside and split.

Pretty badass.

Trump Tower Climber Tom Cruise and I Have the Same Sole

8/12/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_trump_climber_rogue-shoe_gettyThe Trump Tower climber and Tom Cruise have one thing in common -- the same taste in shoes.

Five Ten tells TMZ its climbing shoe -- the Rogue VCS 5.10 worn by the man who scaled 21 floors Wednesday -- has seen greater heights with a bigger star and a law-abiding citizen ... Tom Cruise.

The company says it designed the shoes Tom wore in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" specifically for the scene where his character climbs the Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates -- the tallest structure in the world.

The Trump climber bought 'em in blue, and viewers took notice -- cause Five Ten tells us its online sales have spiked since the wannabe Spider-Man went all daredevil in Manhattan.

But the shoe company's crystal clear -- climbing Trump's or anyone else's building is not the way to meet him ... or, frankly, anyone.


Dallas Police Org. To NFL Upset Over Rejected Decals 'It Hurts You Don't Support Us'

8/11/2016 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_dallas_cowboys_dallas_fallen_soldiers_twitterA Dallas police organization says the NFL should reconsider rejecting the Cowboys' request to honor fallen cops with a helmet decal this season ... telling TMZ Sports "We are extremely upset by their decision."

We spoke to Sergeant Demetrick Pennie, president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, who tells us the league should use its platform to support their cause.

"The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement," Pennie says.

"These teams and players have a spotlight on them and could have helped bring awareness. If a uniform policy is keeping them from this, then why don’t they have every team wear the decals?" 

Pennie says he appreciates the Cowboys' attempt, saying "they understand the sacrifices these officers made and we're happy they wanted to honor these heroes.”

"These are our friends and our loved ones ... it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us."

8/10/2016 7:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's Cristiano Ronaldo ... putting his man junk front and center in a modeling shoot for his brand new underwear collection ... and he couldn't be more proud. 

The soccer superstar just released his 6th collection of his CR7 undie line -- and shocker, he decided to tap himself as the main model. 

So, why is Cristiano so fond of his man panties? 

"Underwear is the first thing you put on in the morning, so it’s the foundation to feeling your best. I always feel good when I’m wearing great underwear -- it’s a confidence boost."

Just to be clear ... the wealthiest, most ripped, model-banging, soccer champion in the world needs a "confidence boost" from his boxer briefs. Huh. 

Just click on the photos already. 


Kesha Jacket Bandit Fesses Up ... After Singer's Emotional Plea

8/9/2016 11:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-kesha-stolen-jacket-nudiegirl2-instagram-01Kesha is about to be reunited with her precious tiger jacket after it was stolen out of her dressing room this weekend ... and the culprit has a very fishy explanation. 

The singer went to social media Monday night and begged her fans to help find the jacket -- and said it's so important to her, she'll kiss whoever finds it "on the f***ing mouth."

Well, the social media APB worked -- because sources close to Kesha tell us she was contacted by a person who said they have the jacket and wanted to return it. 

So, how'd they get it?

The person insists they "accidentally" took it from the dressing room ... and didn't mean any harm.

Yeah right.

Bottom line -- we're told Kesha is pumped to get it back and isn't planning on going to the cops.

No word if she still plans on delivering that mouth kiss.

Vic Mensa Cops Racially Profiled Me ... In Bev Hills Robbery

8/7/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vic Mensa says Beverly Hills cops targeted him for stealing from a fancy store just because he's black ... but the cops claim they were just doing their job. 

Mensa and crew were pulled over Thursday by BHPD as the rapper ended a shopping spree. He says he dropped $4k at Barneys. You can see in the video Vic shot ... he's dumbfounded by the whole thing and thinks it's straight up racism.

BHPD says that's not the case ... a spokesman tells TMZ they got a call from a store owner who accused Vic and his crew of jacking some merch.

Cops initiated the traffic stop, spoke with Vic, searched his vehicle and determined nothing had been stolen. The whole thing took about half an hour.

As pissed as Vic was, he's moving on ... no talk of a lawsuit, and cops insist they did exactly what they're supposed to do.
