Future Sued For Bailing On Concert ... Rapper Claims Commas Were Messed Up

12/1/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-future-tmz-01Future is being sued by a promoter who claims he lost more than $150k when the rapper pulled out of a concert, but sources close to Future claim he walked because the deal was shady.

In his lawsuit, Robert Caillier says he gave Future's camp a $15k advance to perform a Louisiana gig back in August 2014, but Future was a no-show ... causing Caillier to lose his anticipated $150k profit, plus the advance. 

Sources close to Future say he did show up, and even performed one song, but was pulled offstage by his management after they realized Caillier didn't have the balance of his payday. The docs don't mention how much Future was owed, but as we reported ... he typically gets at least $150k for a show.

Caillier is suing for $150k and his deposit back.

The Game Scores Puppy Bro ... To Fetty Wap's Bitch

12/1/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-the-game-new-puppy-dog-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01The Game and Fetty Wap are related ... through their dogs.

Game just dropped $5k on a male American Bully puppy from Different Breed Kennels, the same Cali breeder where Fetty Wap picked up his little girl pooch, Trap Queen.

1128-fetty-wap-dog-instagramOwner Tyrone Carter says Game and Fetty Wap's dogs are from the same litter. He says he approached Game about the pooch when they met in an L.A. strip club. 

We're told the name is Makaveli ... an homage to Tupac. Game hasn't picked up the 3-month-old pup yet -- he's still prepping his house. We're guessing that means hiding his Jordans.

Tyga No Deal On New Kylie-Adjacent Crib

11/30/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_tyga_house_photos_launchTyga's dropping all kinds of excuses for not closing the deal on a pricey Calabasas home close to Kylie Jenner, but there are some strong signs why the sale keeps stalling out.

Sources tell us Tyga's been in escrow 3 times on the $10 million, 8 bedroom pad located in the same neighborhood where Kris Jenner, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian live.

We're told each time it gets close to closing, Tyga's got excuses -- such as being on the road or not getting paid -- for coming up short on cash.  

As we've reported, Tyga's got all sorts of money problems ... so he might be aiming high with a $10 million home.

50 Cent His Lawyers Are Living High Life ... Sex Tape Victim Gripes

11/30/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-50cent-tmz50 Cent owes Lastonia Leviston millions for releasing her sex tape, so it makes sense she's upset his bankruptcy lawyers are living in the lap of luxury, and racking up huge expenses in the process.

Leviston, who won a $7 million judgement from Fiddy, filed docs calling out the rapper's legal team for dropping $57,241.76 on hotels alone while working on his bankruptcy case. Their legal research tab comes to $14,800.66, and a court reporter ran 'em $26,890. 

In the docs, Leviston calls these expenses unreasonable ... especially since 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 in July. As part of his bankruptcy case, 50 has to regularly file his expenses with the court, and Leviston's not happy with the numbers.

She doesn't spell it out in her docs, but it seems Leviston's concerned 50 Cent won't have enough cash left to pay her if the lawyers are bleeding him dry. 

She wants a judge to reject the lavish reimbursements, and her message is pretty clear -- I'm watching where your money goes, Fiddy!  

Future's Tour Rider Keep My Powder White ... On My Doughnuts

11/29/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125_future_candy_request_tmz_compositeFuture's needs are VERY specific when he's on the road ... in fact -- he's so specific -- even his doughnuts need to look a certain way. 

TMZ obtained Future's rider from a show back in December and it's pretty wild. For starters, the rapper makes $150k for a 45 minute show. However, show promoters better have 4 bottles of Ace of Spades, Ciroc and Moet, among other drinks on hand to keep him happy.  

And get this -- when it comes to food -- Future's a poor man's Gordon Ramsay, demanding items like chicken fingers, cheddar popcorn and broccoli to keep him full. The best part, Future loves his doughnuts ... requesting "fresh white powdered" ones be at the ready, with plenty of junk food.

But the dude likes to relax too ... asking for scented candles in his dressing room. His scent of choice?Lemon grass.

Weird ... our money was on jolly rancher.  

'Fuller House' Star Divorce Settled by ... Flipping Coins!

11/29/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Fuller House" star Eva LaRue has divvied up a slew of assets with her ex, but perhaps most interesting of all -- they split their coin collection almost perfectly down the middle. 

According to divorce docs, LaRue -- who plays Bob Saget's wife on the the new show -- and ex husband Joseph Cappuccio each walked away with 160 of the same coins ... except for the 16 French Angels gold coins she scored.

They did have a few other items ... Cappuccio got to keep 8 cars, 2 motorcycles and the gear for his seafood biz. At the end of the day, he had to pay LaRue $2.455 million to make it all even.

Now that's some serious coin!

Dennis Rodman Sued For Rebounding $28k Commission

11/29/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-dennis-rodman-tmz-01Dennis Rodman hired a company to retrieve a ton of his lost assets, but that company is now suing him for allegedly Worming out of paying up on a hefty tab.

Assets International says it was hired to recover unclaimed property for Rodman in exchange for 30% of the property's worth. Wouldn't ya know it ... the company says it found $96k for Dennis at the Michigan Department of Treasury's Unclaimed Property Division.

Assets International says Rodman went quiet after he got the good news -- but it later found out Rodman had retrieved the booty all by himself ... which means it lost out on a $28k commission, hence the lawsuit.

We reached out to Rodman's lawyer, Bradford Cohen ... they're blaming any sketchy business on his former business manager.

Deion Sanders Intercepts Ex-Wife's Cash Huge Legal Victory

11/27/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-deion-pilar-sanders-tmz-instagram-02Deion Sanders might wanna dust off one of his famous TD dances -- he just won more than a million dollars in his defamation case against ex-wife, Pilar Sanders.

An attorney for Deion tells us the NFL legend feels a great sense of "relief and vindication" in getting a $2.2 million judgment against Pilar ... after she alleged in interviews and web posts she was a victim of domestic violence.

Deion and Pilar had a very bad, very public breakup ... and cops even got involved after a few nasty spats.

We're told the money Pilar now owes Deion offsets any money he would have paid in their divorce settlement. Bottom line? He owes nothing, but she still owes him 7 figures.

Pilar's attorney says they plan to appeal.

NFL's Wallace Gilberry I Had to Help That Family ... I Saw Their Faces

Exclusive Details

1125-wallace-gilberry-getty-02He's the NFL lineman who surprised a family of 7 in a Target store by picking up the check for a PS4 ... and now Bengals star Wallace Gilberry is finally explaining why he did what he did. 

Gilberry's story made national news when someone shot a pic of the 270-pounder approaching the random family Monday night and offering to buy holiday gifts for the kids. 

So ... why? 

1125-sub-wallace-gilberry-instagram-01"I just went to Target to get some clippers to trim my beard and I saw a family with a dad, wife and five or six kids. The kids were looking at the electronics and I could tell by the mom's face that she was upset about telling the kids they wouldn't be able to afford what they wanted."

"I went up to the family and asked them if they would mind if I bought the kids whatever they wanted. They said that would be so great ... the dad said he was starting a new job and money was tight."

So, Gilberry bought a PS4 and a bunch of video games -- "One of the kids was really excited about a game called Minecraft. I don't even know what that is, but he went crazy."

In the end, Gilberry dropped somewhere close to $800 ... but says it's not about the money. 

"One thing about me is that I grew up with my shirt on my back and that's it. Money doesn't define me. If I have a million dollars, I'm going to try to help a million people."


Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Helps Save 'The Rock' ... Doggie Version

11/25/2015 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


A very sick pooch named Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is going to get a life-saving heart operation in the nick of time thanks to his namesake.

Dwayne, the dog, was all fur and bones with his mouth wired shut when L.A. shelter SPOT! found him. Turns out, Dwayne has a grade 6 heart murmur that requires a $4,500 surgery.

Someone started a GoFundMe page for the patient, and the two-legged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got wind of it. The actor has a real soft spot for dogs, and dropped $1,500 toward the $5k goal.

The Rock's not the only celeb to open his wallet ... we're told 'Real World' and "Hangover 2" star Jamie Chung donated $600 for a heart echo and x-rays.

As of now, the little guy's about $365 shy of the goal. The shelter plans on putting any extra cash it raises towards surgeries for other sick and injured dogs. 

Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone Legal Docs Claim Mental Incompetence ... But Healthy Sexual Appetite

11/25/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

124_sumner-redstone_TMZViacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is in the middle of a legal war, with his ex-lover/caregiver fighting in court to regain control over decisions that will keep him alive ... and her arguments involve sex.

Manuela Herzer claims in legal docs she was once romantic and for a long time a close friend and confidant with the 92-year-old Redstone -- who also started Midway Games which produced Mortal Kombat -- and in September of this year he chose her to make medical decisions on his behalf.   

Herzer claims things changed radically just one month later when Redstone's health and mental state really deteriorated. She claims Redstone's people threw her out of his home and she no longer had the power to make medical decisions.

Herzer now claims Redstone was in such bad shape mentally he did not have the capacity to strip her of the power he gave her just a month earlier.

In her docs, Herzer suggests a marker showing Redstone's mental deterioration was when he started ignoring doctors orders. She says he "demands, to the extent he can be understood, to engage in sexual activity every day, even though Dr. Gold has repeatedly recommended that he abstain from daily sexual activity."

The docs also claim Redstone can't write, his signature is almost a straight line, "appearing as if someone moved the paper under his pen," he has "spontaneous crying spells" and can only converse in "brief grunted responses."

An attorney for Redstone tells us, "Ms. Herzer's claim that she filed this lawsuit out of concern for Mr. Redstone is preposterous."  They added, "It proves only that Ms. Herzer will stop at nothing to pursue her personal financial agenda."

A judge has yet to rule. 

Wu-Tang Clan Sells ONE Album ... For MILLIONS!!!!

11/25/2015 6:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-wu-tang-getty-01Wu-Tang Clan ain't as crazy as you thought -- they just sold a single top secret album for more than $1 MILLION, and what IS crazy is ... the buyer can't share the music publicly!!

You'll recall the Wu announced it had spent 6 years recording a double album called "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" ... and would auction it off. Not a copy, but THE only album. Well, Forbes says the bizarre plan worked -- it sold at auction for a "price in the millions."

The American buyer wants to remain anonymous, like the record itself.

Part of the deal is he or she must wait 88 years to release the 31 cuts to the public -- which means RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Method Man et al. will NEVER hear the music played in a club or on the radio. On the plus side ... they'll probably die rich.

"Diversify your bonds, bitches!"


The Gap Band Lawsuit I Dropped a Bomb on My Brother

11/25/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


R&B legend "Uncle" Charlie Wilson is at war with his brother over just who exactly IS The Gap Band ... and who gets to keep making money off of the name. 

Ronnie Wilson filed a lawsuit claiming Charlie is derailing his efforts to launch a comeback tour. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ronnie says he recently booked 2 big gigs -- one at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, and another at Howard Theatere in Washington, D.C.

Ronnie says after he sealed the deals, Charlie -- who left the band in 2009 -- had his people step in and somehow interfere with the bookings. Ronnie says both venues pulled the plug.

The elder Wilson points out his band existed for years before kid bro Charlie joined in '72. 


Ronnie says his new Gap Band stood to make more than $20k from the 2 gigs. He's suing for damages and to get the court to block Charlie from interfering with future bookings.

His point -- you might have been the lead singer, but this band is MINE, bro.
