Blac Youngsta All His Money Is Just a Gimmick ... Claim Stiffed Strippers

1/11/2017 1:12 PM PST

Do NOT believe the hype on Blac Youngsta's stacks of cash ... so say the strippers who didn't get a dime from him at L.A.'s  Ace of Diamonds.

AoD dancers Tokyo and Ari Safari sounded off on getting stiffed by the Memphis rapper who famously flaunts piles of hundos on social media. After Monday night they're now dismissing him as nothing more than a "gimmick."

It's that simple, but it sounds so much worse when you see it straight from the mouths of angry strippers -- who want this rant to be a warning to any other rappers who get onstage with them.

You're on notice, cheap bastards. 



Richard Carpenter to Music Companies You Screwed Me and Karen Royally

1/11/2017 11:10 AM PST

0111-Carpenters-getty-03Richard Carpenter has filed a lawsuit against 2 music companies he claims ripped him off in the royalties over Carpenters tunes, and he's brought Karen into the legal action as well.

Richard and Karen Carpenter's estate claim Universal Music Group and A&M Records have shut them out of profits for iTunes and other online sales distributors.  

It's a whole new world out there with digital downloads, and Richard claims Universal and A&M are not giving artists their fair cut. He goes on to say the courts have agreed with him -- notably in a case involving Eminem -- and now he says it's time to pay up.

Richard and Karen's estate have crunched the numbers, and they want more than $2 million.


Soulja's Fight Promoter Calls Out Mayweather Bloods Are In Control, Not You

1/11/2017 10:41 AM PST

Floyd Mayweather is NOT calling the shots in the Soulja Boy vs. Chris Brown fight and has NO SAY in where it will go down ... this according to Soulja's personal fight promoter, Wack 100.

Wack isn't just Soulja's promoter -- he also manages Game and Ray J and is extremely well-connected in the West Coast gang scene ... especially with the Piru Bloods, the organization of which Chris and Soulja claim to be members.

Wack says he heard Mayweather dispute the location of the fight during an appearance on ESPN's "First Take" ... but says the boxer was straight-up wrong when he shot down Dubai.

Wack says the fight is a "West Coast thing" and, while he's got love for Mayweather, explains that Floyd is just "a guy from Michigan who lives in Vegas."

Cris Carter To ATL Falcons: Don't Troll Russell Wilson With Future ... He'll Make You Pay

1/11/2017 9:04 AM PST

Message to the Atlanta Falcons ... if you're thinking of hilariously trolling Russell Wilson with Future's music at the game this weekend, DON'T ... 'cause NFL legend Cris Carter says it's a bad idea.

The Seahawks play the Falcons in ATL this weekend ... and there were rumblings the Falcons DJ would try to get in Wilson's head by piping in some Future tunes during the game.

While that would be absolutely amazing ... Carter said it was a bad idea when we talked to him out in L.A. ... with the thinking being that you don't want to poke the 5'10" bear.

He might be right ... but we think the Falcons should poke away, Future certainly seems to be.

Selena Gomez Making Out with The Weeknd ... Awkward Much?

1/11/2017 9:14 AM PST

0111-selena-gomex-the-weeknd-kissing-photos-launch-4The Weeknd is bouncing back from Bella Hadid just fine by making out with Selena Gomez

Selena was seen hanging all over The Weeknd Tuesday night outside Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica -- getting handsy and mouthy with the singer. We don't know how long this has been going on, but they're definitely a thing ... based on these pics.

There's potential drama here -- Selena's pals with Gigi Hadid ... so her sister, Bella, might have a thing or 2 to say about the hookup.

But as they say, the heart wants what it wants. Same goes for Selena's hands.

Fetty Wap Sex Tape Ex-GF Accuses HIM of Leaking

1/11/2017 6:51 AM PST

0111-launch-fetty-wap-alexis-skyy-tmz-instagram-02Either Fetty Wap or his current chick is responsible for leaking his sex tape with ex-gf Alexis Sky, according to Alexis, anyway ... who's now issuing her own legal threats.

TMZ obtained a copy of the cease and desist letter Sky's attorney fired off to Team Fetty -- after he sent one to her -- and it squarely accuses the rapper of putting the video out on the Internet. The way she sees it, it was most likely "released by someone gaining access to the materials through him, with or without his knowledge."

Of course, he's accusing her of the same -- so it's a whole lot of finger pointing right now.

But here's a twist -- Alexis went on the 'Breakfast Club' Wednesday morning and hinted Fetty has a bunch of sex tapes ... with other chicks.


Meek Mill Takes Another L ... Slipping On Ice!

1/10/2017 5:49 PM PST

Meek Mill keeps racking up the losses, but at least he has a great sense of humor on his latest one, which came at the hands of Winter.

The rapper shared a hilarious video of himself going down hard on the icy stairs at his mom's house. Meek joked that all his haters "spoke a L into existence."

First Drake, then Nicki and now a vengeful patch of ice.

Props to Meek ... he always gets back up.

Rapper Blac Youngsta Accused of Stiffing Strippers ... Pissing Off Strippers

1/10/2017 5:43 PM PST

Blac Youngsta -- the rapper known for constantly flashing stacks of cash -- didn't pull a dime out of his pocket to tip the strippers at Ace of Diamonds ... according to several angry dancers.

Multiple dancers in L.A.'s famous strip club tell us Blac Youngsta was rolling deep Monday night ... coming in with at least 20 of his pals for a paid appearance. He even shared the stage with some of the dancers while he performed.  

We're told he was there for about 90 minutes, but tipped exactly zero dollars. Same goes for his crew. There was some cash raining down while the ladies twerked extra hard -- but our sources say none of it came from Youngsta.

You can imagine ... strippers ain't having it. As one of them said, "It's super embarrassing to be onstage, after HE requests you and then doesn't tip anything."

We reached out to Youngsta for his side of the story, but no word back.

The irony is he famously makes it rain all over the place -- even on his dog. The AoD strippers clearly expected at least that.

0110_justin_bieber_haircut-akm-gettyJustin Bieber is covering an old hit ... his 2010 hairstyle.

The Biebs looked like his younger self while grabbing lunch at the Montage Beverly Hills, proving everyone loves a throwback these days.

Hey ... anything's better than the 'Where's Waldo?' look.


Fetty Wap to Alexis Sky We Know You Leaked the Sex Tape ... Now Stop It

1/10/2017 2:20 PM PST

0110-fetty-wap-cease-and-desist-launch-01Fetty Wap is serious about getting a sex tape off the Internet ... purportedly featuring him and Alexis Sky -- and he's targeted the person he thinks leaked it ... Dear Alexis, STOP!

TMZ has obtained the cease and desist letters Fetty's legal hounds fired off to Alexis and a bunch of media outlets allegedly posting the video.

Fetty's lawyers threatened Alexis this way ... "[Y]ou must IMMEDIATELY STOP the distribution and/or attempted distribution of this alleged video to any and all media outlets." 

BTW ... he vows to sue her if the video doesn't disappear.

We'll see if he ruffled enough feathers to keep it from spreading any further. 

Fetty Wap Sets Legal Attack Dogs on Leaked Sex Tape

1/10/2017 11:16 AM PST

0110_fetty_Wap_alexis_skyy_tmz_instagram-2Fetty Wap isn't about to let anyone, especially his ex-gf, make a dime off leaking a sex tape allegedly featuring him and said ex, Alexis Skyy ... TMZ has learned.

Video clips appearing to show Fetty and Alexis doing the deed started floating around the Internet Tuesday morning. Fetty's camp tells us he has NOTHING to do with the leak, and he's already got his legal team on the job.

We're told Fetty's lawyers have drafted cease and desist letters to websites posting the clip -- and also to Alexis. The letter doesn't accuse her of leaking the video, but we're told it does warn her a lawsuit could be coming her way if they find out she did. As for whether it's definitely him on the tape -- Fetty's camp won't confirm.

We're told Fetty believes he and Alexis are the only people in possession of the video. As we've told you over the years of covering celeb sex tapes -- both parties have to sign off on any distribution deal.

For her part, Alexis' attorney, Eric Croone, tells us ... the video was leaked without her permission, and she's considering legal action too.

Sounds like there's no chance the rest of this video sees the light of day. Not at this point, anyway.


Mariah Carey Hollywood Star Vandalized Cops Investigating

1/10/2017 10:15 AM PST

0109-mariah-carey-star-vandalized-INSTAGRAM-01Mariah Carey's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized over the weekend ... in a much more subtle way than Donald Trump's.

A rep for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce tells us ... they called the LAPD Sunday and they gave cops a lead -- someone on Instagram claimed responsibility.

We're told it cost $1,500 to restore the star. Hollywood Historic Trust has already had it cleaned up.

Cops are on the hunt. They're pulling surveillance video. The investigation is for felony vandalism.

No word if James Otis has an alibi.


Chris Brown, Soulja Boy We're Boxing in Dubai To Make a Fortune Off Pay-Per-View

1/10/2017 1:00 AM PST

0109_chris_brown_soulja_boy_boxing_compositeChris Brown and Soulja Boy are gearing up for a bloodbath in the ring, but for various reasons they can't pull it off in the U.S. ... so we've learned they're planning to fight it out in Dubai.

Sources connected with both Chris and Soulja tell TMZ they genuinely dislike each other and each wants to beat the crap out of the other, but what they want more than anything is a huge paycheck by running the fight on Pay-Per-View.

The initial plan was for a Vegas fight, but we've learned there are several rules and regs that would make such a fight impossible there, not the least of which is a mandatory drug test for amateur fights ... which both Chris and Soulja know they would never pass.

We're told their plan is to take the fight overseas -- first choice Dubai -- and they believe the Pay-Per-View audience would rake in untold millions of dollars.

Both Chris and Soulja have talked about making this a charity fight, but we're told some of the money will line their pockets.
