Justin Bieber is angry a website made it look like Calvin Klein pumped up his muscles using Photoshop, and unless he gets an admission he's going to court.
Justin's team fired off a demand letter -- obtained by TMZ -- threatening breatheheavy.com with a defamation case for posting a GIF showing Justin transformed from mildly muscly to jacked.
The Biebs and company say the puny photo is fake ... clearly Photoshopped, and it's damaging his brand.
Bieber's team wants 2 things: remove the post and acknowledge the deception ... or else.
Calm Down Internet ...
It's Just a Push-Up Bra
1/8/2015 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie Jenner is scoffing at reports she got a boob job ... she's saying her busty Instagram photo is just the work of a fancy bra.
Our Kardashians sources say Kylie bought a new Victoria's Secret bra -- called Bombshell -- which increases your bust by 2 cup sizes. It's the bra Taylor Swift wore at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
There are reports Bruce is upset over Kris allowing Kylie to get plastic surgery, but it's not true because she didn't go under the knife.
And, we're told Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney thought the bra made Kylie look so good they ordered some for themselves.

Pisses Off Mosque Leaders
1/1/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Selena deleted the photo Thursday afternoon.Selena Gomez stripped down and showed way too much skin on her ankles while visiting a mosque in Abu Dhabi -- and now she's getting blasted for her "disrespectful" poses.
Gomez and co. -- Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson, and Shay Mitchell -- posted a few photos this week taken inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque ... which is now getting flooded with complaints.
Folks at the mosque tell us the main issues their members have with the pics are:
1) Selena's exposed leg, and her sexy pose ... both are no-nos. It's a respect thing.
2) Mosque rules prohibit laughing and smiling ... again, it's about respect.
Selena did one-up Rihanna, in a sense. RiRi visited the same mosque last year, but when she posted pics ... she was immediately asked to leave. Mosque leaders went easier on Selena.
Maybe they're just not that into her.

Clippers Spencer Hawes
Rocks Amazing Hideous Xmas Suit
... Tribute to Craig Sager
12/26/2014 8:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It might be the most incredible/disgusting/amazing outfit ever worn by a NBA player -- the holiday suit Spencer Hawes wore on the bench during last night's Clippers vs. Warriors game.
But there was a reason the Clippers 7-footer decided to rock the nasty red, white and green look ... it was all a tribute to TNT's legendary sideline reporter Craig Sager ... who's famous for his outrageous fashion statements.
Unfortunately, Craig's battling leukemia and hasn't worked this season -- so Spencer felt he would pick up the Xmas day slack.
In fact, Hawes -- who was sidelined with an injury last night -- tweeted, "Mr. Sager do you approve? Merry Christmas!"
Get well soon, Craig!
