7/1/2016 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0701-ana-barbara-wells-fargo-INSTAGRAM-01Wells Fargo has enabled two crooked employees to fleece a famous Mexican singer out of her hard-earned money ... so claims the performer in a new lawsuit. 

Latin Grammy winner Ana Bárbara accuses the bank and two of its employees of opening up several accounts and then taking more than $416k. Bárbara, who speaks limited English, says she trusted them when she signed up for the accounts.

Bárbara -- who's sold over 6 million albums -- claims one of the employees fessed up to the theft. And now the singer also wants Wells Fargo to pay nearly $900k for loss of income after claiming she had to cancel concerts in Mexico and Bolivia to deal with this mess.

Bárbara accuses Wells Fargo of creating a corrupt business culture that presses its employees into fraudulent practices to meet unreachable sales. The lawsuit points out the L.A. City Attorney's Office has gone after the bank for these practices.

We reached out to Wells Fargo, but got no comment.

6/30/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0630-nick-young-keonna-iggy-tmz-twitter-04Nick Young's baby mama is anything but ashamed for being the alleged "other woman" in his relationship with Iggy Azalea ... she's already sold her story, TMZ has learned.

Keonna Green is pregnant again with Nick's kid, if you believe some of the stories that have been posted. It's unclear if she's one of the women allegedly skulking into and out of the home Nick shared with Iggy, but apparently she will talk about it ... for a price.

Green hired a lawyer to shop her story, and someone bit and apparently bit hard.

Any media outlet interested in getting Green's story gets this back from her lawyer ... "Due to an exclusive deal with another media outlet, Keonna and I cannot comment on the validity of any of the [allegations]."


Jay Z Recordings Engineer Wants $220 MIL ... NY & L.A. Cops Ripped Me Off!

6/30/2016 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062016-jayz-police-tmzThe man who insists he's the rightful owner of several Jay Z classic recordings is going after NYPD, LAPD and a slew of lawyers for seizing them -- and he wants a TON of money for his trouble.

Chauncey Mahan is the studio engineer who sued Jay Z over the masters for "Life and Times of S. Carter" and "The Dynasty" albums. Jay won that lawsuit, but now Mahan wants just about everyone else to pay up.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Mahan rips Jay Z's attorneys for telling cops the tapes were stolen property and part of an extortion plot. He also blames L.A. cops for seizing the tapes from his storage facility -- and cops in NY, where the recordings were actually made at Baseline Studios.

Oh yeah, he's suing the owner of the studio too.

He's pissed because LAPD is still holding the recordings, which he still believes belong to him, at least partially. For good measure he's also suing NYC and L.A. for $50 million each. 

Here's the rest of the damages, in his eyes:
- LAPD $10 million
- NYPD $10 million
- Roc Nation lawyers $80 million
- Studio owner $20 million

In all, Mahan's suing for $220 million.

Chris Brown Tosses Girl & Her Phone from VIP

6/30/2016 7:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown apparently has a no taping policy, as one woman found out when he snatched her phone and chucked it behind him.

Chris was partying in the VIP section last weekend after his show at a club called Arenile in Napoli, Italy. Check out his reaction when he spotted the woman recording on a phone ... clearly, without CB's permission.

Witnesses tell us Chris didn't ask any questions ... he simply took the phone, hurled it over his shoulder, then had security kick her out of VIP. 

We're told she didn't call cops because security found her phone and returned it.
