Model Adwoa Aboah Sues Management Co. You're Holding My $190k as Ransom!!!

3/22/2018 1:22 PM PDT

Model Adwoa Aboah is getting royally screwed out of tons of dough from her former managers ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Adwoa -- who recently posed nearly nude on the cover of Allure -- is suing The Lions Management, claiming they stiffed her on $190k, and they're holding it as ransom because she left the fold.

In docs obtained by TMZ, Aboah says she earned around $670k between January 2015 and July 2017, but her managers kept almost half of it. She demanded what she was owed, and says TLM wired some, but not all of the cash.

Adwoa eventually left TLM, and says it's holding the money over her head ... just to punish her for bailiing. As she puts it in the suit, "Fashion models are not indentured servants." She's suing to get the remaining balance, plus damages.

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

Model Danielle Knudson A (Tan) Line in the Sand? Yeah, No ...

3/22/2018 7:24 AM PDT

Danielle Knudson did an oceanside photo shoot for H&M -- but we're not sure what the hell she's advertising ... besides her half-naked body all covered in sand.

The Canadian model hit up a beach in Tulum, Mexico Wednesday for a shoot with the beleaguered Swedish retail company, where she started off in a 2-piece bikini, and ended up topless ... layered with sand ... and on top of some very lucky dude. 

We imagine they were showing off some of H&M's swim line -- but it's anyone's guess with how much skin is showing here. At least it ain't "monkey in the jungle" Winter wear again. 

Fun fact: it's officially Spring ... which means we're coming up on bikini season! Not-so-fun fact: Danielle is taken ... damn.

Odell Beckham Jr. Shoot-Danced Like A Wildman ... at Teammate's Wedding!

3/21/2018 11:56 AM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. made one hell of an entrance at the Sterling Shepard-Chanel Iman wedding reception, doing what he does best -- DANCING HIS ASS OFF.

OBJ and Shepard's other groomsmen tore through the wedding hall with Rich the Kid's "New Freezer" bumpin' ... and broke out the shoot dance to end all shoot dances -- fist-pumpin' and leg-kickin' with extra sauce for Sterling's big day!!

Giants WR Roger Lewis and Miami WR Kenny Stills (Shep's OU teammate) weren't half bad -- but we gotta give Odell the nod for performance of the night ... only 'cause Eli wasn't around to steal the show.

In the video, the emcee said the party was just getting started ... so we can only imagine how turnt OBJ and co. got by night's end.

Congrats, Sterling and Chanel!

NY Gov. Cuomo Calls Out D.A. Over 2015 Weinstein Sting

3/19/2018 5:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

6:01 PM PT -- A spokesperson for New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says their office is "deeply familiar with Harvey Weinstein's years of egregious sexual abuse, and recently filed a civil rights lawsuit against him alleging severe and persistent abuse of employees at The Weinstein Company." They add the AG is committed to a full, fair and independent review of the Manhattan D.A.'s handling of the Weinstein case.Harvey Weinstein skated after NYPD recorded him asking a model to watch him shower -- and NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to know why.

Gov. Cuomo is directing the state's Attorney General to review how Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr. handled the 2015 sting operation ... where cops wired a model named Ambra Battilana, who claims Weinstein groped her breasts during a business meeting.

On the recording, first obtained by the New Yorker, Weinstein refers to the alleged groping, saying, "I'm used to that" ... and then begs her to come into his room. She refused, and he got pissed. Despite the recording, Weinstein was not charged. The D.A. said "the audio was insufficient to prove a crime."

The Governor says, "It is of great concern that sexual assault cases have not been pursued with full vigor by our criminal justice system."

SI Model Samantha Hoopes Am I Making You Thirsty?

3/17/2018 12:46 PM PDT

Samantha Hoopes got some tanning in at the beach and made sure to stay hydrated ... and we've learned her boyfriend might just have the best damn job in the world.

The Sports Illustrated and Carl's Jr. model hit the sand in Miami Saturday with her tech guru BF Salvatore Palella ... and glistened in her tiny maroon bikini. It looks like she applied plenty of sun tan lotion -- with Sal's help ... and we're not complaining.

Last time we saw Samantha she told us she needed to pack on some lbs. to land the next SI cover ... clearly it was just a joke.

Kate Upton Alleged Witness Goes Silent With Guess Investigators

3/16/2018 10:15 AM PDT

The Guess investigation into Kate Upton's sexual harassment allegations against co-founder Paul Marciano has hit another roadblock -- Kate's witness is refusing to cooperate.

As we reported ... Kate has already said she won't talk to the lawyers investigating for Guess. She's pissed Guess initially hired Marciano's personal law firm for the probe, and even though Guess has now brought in a new independent firm, Glaser Weil, Kate's still pissed about what she calls "smoke and mirrors" tactics.

Our sources say photographer Yu Tsai -- the man Kate claims witnessed Marciano groping her -- has also gone radio silent. We're told Yu hasn't returned multiple phone calls and emails asking him to talk to investigators for Guess.

One possible reason for Yu going AWOL could be the dozens of emails he's sent Marciano over the years -- including one in July 2010, immediately after Kate alleges Marciano groped her. In that email, which we've seen, Yu says Kate asked him for Marciano's phone number so she could thank him for some Guess clothing she received.

In other emails, he consults with Marciano about future shoots with Kate and gushes about getting to work for Guess. It certainly appears he admires the Guess co-founder.

You'll recall, Kate said Yu was there when Marciano allegedly groped her thighs and breasts, and he's backed up her version of events. She said Yu was her buffer, present when she had a meeting or photo shoot Marciano attended.

For now, though ... he's not talking.

Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik Much Love & Respect ... But, We're Donezo!!! (Again)

Breaking News

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are each back on the market ... because their 2-year relationship is over.

The couple reportedly ended their relationship earlier this month, and Zayn confirmed it Tuesday ... saying, "Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend."

They'd been on a brief break, just for a few days, in 2016 -- and Zayn addressed the fact this split had made it to the rumor mill, saying, "We wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all."

Gigi followed up with her own statement 12 minutes later.

Gigi and Zayn were never shy about sharing their relationship on social media.

Last time we saw Zayn leaving Gigi's apartment, he was in a pretty good mood. One thing's for sure ... he's gonna have a hard time forgetting her eyes ... since they're apparently tatted on his chest!

Mohamed Hadid Sues Sexual Assault Accuser

3/12/2018 4:13 PM PDT

Mohamed Hadid is lashing out at the woman who claims he raped her by suing her for defamation.

Miranda Vee claimed on an Instagram post Guess co-founder Paul Marciano sexually harassed her and then "passed" her on to Hadid. She says she set up a professional meeting with Hadid, but it turned out to be the 2 of them, "just me, him & champagne where he date raped me in an a apartment."

The 69-year-old father of Bella and Gigi says he had a consensual meeting with the 23-year-old Vee, but she was in a plot to extort him and got $8k from her co-conspirators to have sex with Hadid and then set him up for an extortion demand.

We were told she signed an NDA after she threatened to go public with the story, which Hadid says is an outright lie. He calls her a "pathological liar."

Hadid is suing for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and civil extortion. 

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.

Here's Akon having more fun hooping than any of us ever will -- holding court with a SQUAD of hot chicks in bikinis and heels!!!

From the jump, you can tell Akon's not playin' ... showing off some serious lift as he posterizes his opponent in a green bikini thong. Nice D, young lady.

Not sure if that rim's regulation -- but either way, seems like the video vixens were impressed with the popstar's ups. 

In case you're wondering why this went down -- the woman who shot the video, ATL-based casting director Lala Means, says "the girls thought they could beat Akon on the court."

Clearly, Akon thought different. Boom shakalaka!!!

Kendall Jenner Crushing Balls ... Not You, Blake

3/6/2018 5:17 PM PST

Kendall Jenner stepped up to the plate and took a few big swings at family softball practice ... and it looks like she made some solid contact. Kourtney, too.

Kendall doesn't exactly look like Roy Hobbs out on the field, but she does look like she had a blast taking BP and fielding grounders while playing around with her sisters at a ballpark in Canoga Park.

Cameras were rolling on Jenner and the Kardashian gals, so there's a good chance we'll get to see just how much power Kendall's got. We're guessing at least out-of-the-infield.

No sign of Kendall's rumored BF Blake Griffin, but the 2 have been seen a lot less together since he was traded to Detroit at the end of January ... and since his baby mama sued him.

Play ball!

Jeremy Meeks Cuts Divorce Deal Agrees to Pay Child Support

3/6/2018 7:52 AM PST

Jeremy Meeks will be a little lighter in the pockets ... because he's agreed to pay child support.

Jeremy struck a deal in his divorce case and will pay his estranged wife, Melissa, $1,000 a month, and that's retroactive to November 1, 2017 ... meaning he's gotta pony up 4 months worth of support.

Jeremy and Melissa also agreed to joint legal custody of 9-year-old Jeremy Jr., who will spend 30% of his time with his dad. Good news for Jeremy? He doesn't have to pay spousal support.

Melissa's attorney, Lisa Bloom, tells us, "We are pleased that we were able to get Melissa child support in an amount 25% above legal guidelines. And the parties have worked together to come up with a reasonable child custody and visitation schedule, as parents should."

TMZ broke the story ... the 2 sides were ordered to mediation, but everyone was a no-show because the sides were trying to hammer out a deal. Deal's done, but the judge still needs to sign off.
