Madonna Hung Up In Her Veil

2/10/2016 11:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna keeps trying to press forward from concert wardrobe malfunctions ... but they keep bringing her down.

The latest one happened during a show in Thailand while Madge was performing "Material Girl."

This time instead of a cape, it's a veil that almost takes her down. Gotta giver her proper credit for the recovery because she just walks away-ay.

Kanye West I'm Gonna Help Dads Feed Their Kids

2/10/2016 8:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West is raging and ranting -- when he's on Twitter -- but in the real world the guy's acting like he's on a campaign to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

Kind Kanye's latest beneficiaries were a group of patient fans waiting for him outside his NYC pad ... and even the paparazzi who hung out for him. 

Check out the vid -- at first he looks like he's gonna blow off everyone, not saying a word. And then he drops a very huge ... very valuable surprise for the fans. He wasn't done there. When he and Kim Kardashian return from dinner, you gotta see his chat with the photogs.

This is Yeezy ... the "It's a Wonderful Life" edition -- and almost enough to make people forget about that Bill Cosby thing.

Future Ciara's Lawsuit's a Joke She Made Money Off Bad Mouthing Me!

2/10/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_future_ciara_tmzCiara's throwing $15 million rocks from inside a giant glass house ... which is why Future thinks she doesn't have a chance in hell of winning a dime off him. 

Sources close to Future tell TMZ, the rapper thinks it's absurd his baby mama filed the slander suit, since she's talked plenty of trash on him. We're told he believes Exhibit A is her 2015 platinum selling hit, "I Bet." 

With lyrics like ... "You know that it hurts your pride but you thought the grass was greener on the other side. I bet you start loving me as soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you” -- the song is widely believed to be about Future allegedly cheating on Ciara.

Our source says he could've sued over that, but didn't want to be petty. As for whether he fires back with a lawsuit now -- we're told he's considering it, but hasn't seen Ciara's docs yet. His team claims the process server at LAX failed to deliver.

Bottom line: it's a safe bet this is gonna get much uglier.

Kanye West Get Off Cosby's Back ... He's NO Rapist!

Breaking News

0209-kanye-west-bill-cosby-TMZ-01Kanye West thinks Bill Cosby is getting railroaded ... if Kanye's Twitter feed can be trusted, that is.

Honestly, Kanye's been on one over the last few hours -- ranting about a bunch of things, but he just topped them all with ... "BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!"

It's unclear if 'Ye's been hacked, or if he's just getting stuff off his chest.

What is 100% clear is his album drops on Thursday -- which makes this the perfect time to get as much attention as possible.

We're sure Cosby ain't complaining.

Kanye West Fresh for Less ... The New Yeezy Motto

2/9/2016 9:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West is all over the place on picking a name for his new album, but he's nailed down his future plans for his fashion biz ... and it's awesome for you.

We got Kanye in NYC where he's getting ready for his album launch concert at Madison Square Garden. He just announced the NEW initials of the record -- T.L.O.P. -- the latest change from "Waves" and "Swish" and "So Help Me God." It's a process, apparently.

But when it comes to his fashion line, Yeezy told us ... it's going down. 

Also in this clip -- A$AP Rocky. We smell a MSG cameo coming.

Martin Shkreli & RZA Sued You Put My Art on Front Street ... Now Pay Me!

2/9/2016 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-martin-rza-instagram-tmz-02A die hard Wu-Tang Clan fan's artwork ended up in the band's $2 million album, but he's not happy about it -- he's suing Martin Shkreli and RZA.

Jason Koza says he submitted 9 hand drawn portraits of Wu-Tang members to be posted on a blog called Wu Disciples, but was pleasantly surprised when the group's producer Cilvaringz contacted him in 2014 to say he was working on the "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" record.

Koza says he never heard another word from Cilvaringz or anyone affiliated with the Wu, and then in 2015 he found out the single copy, one-of-a-kind album was completed, and included a leather-bound book with copies of his portraits.

The final dagger came when Shkreli -- who dropped the $2 mil for 'Shaolin' -- allowed Vice to post 3 of his portraits ... Raekwon, ODB and Inspecta Deck .. in a January article. 

Koza feels like he's been royally screwed and wants Shkreli, RZA and Cilvaringz to pay up.

Ciara Sues Future Calling Me a Bad Mother Is Gonna Cost You $15 MILLION!

2/8/2016 10:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0208-ciara-future-TWITTER-TMZ-01Ciara and Future's war just got way more heated -- she's suing him for allegedly blasting her mothering skills and attacking her relationship with Russell Wilson ... all to publicize his music.

In the suit ... obtained by TMZ, Ciara calls out Future for a radio interview in which he discussed a now infamous photo of Wilson pushing Ciara and Future's son in his stroller. Future said, "She probably set him [Russell] up. You letting them catch that photo. Leave my son out of all the publicity stunts."

Ciara points out several other interviews, but she's also pissed about her baby daddy's Twitter rant in January when Future said, "This bitch got control problems ... I gotta go through lawyers to see baby future ... the f***ery for 15k a month."

In the suit, Ciara says she goes out of her way to make sure Future sees their son -- and says they've had at least 19 visitations (some spanning several days) since December 2014.

Just last week TMZ got video of Future and his son in L.A. while Ciara was on vacay with Wilson. We thought it was a sign they were settling their differences, but that's clearly not the case.

Ciara believes Future's comments were said with malice. She's suing for slander and libel, wants all his nasty tweets deleted, and wants him blocked from saying anything about private family matters regarding baby Future ... in the future.

Check out the video below ... a process server was scoping out Future's SUV at LAX as he arrived, and apparently served him with the lawsuit.  The process server was also carrying pics of Future so she could ID him.  Future never got out of the van and left the airport.

EXCLUSIVE

0208_madonna-rocco-guy-ritchie_gettyMadonna is not relying on the paparazzi to document her son's life with Guy Ritchie in the middle of their custody war ... we're told she's hired a P.I. to get the lowdown in London first hand.

Multiple sources connected with the singer tell us, Madonna believes Guy has set no rules for 15-year-old Rocco and he's living dangerously ... not enrolled in school, hanging out in skate parks, smoking and essentially doing anything he wants. 

We're told the animosity runs deep between Madonna and Guy ... she feels strongly their son needs structure and he's unable and unwilling to provide it.

As we reported, Rocco continues to live with Guy in London and they have a court date next month in NYC to square off on custody. 

Backstreet Boys Quit Playing Games With Our Yuan! Chinese Co. Sues Promoter

2/8/2016 6:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208_backstreet-boys-gettyThe Backstreet Boys are in the middle of a little showdown in big China -- between a concert touring company and a promoter accused of pulling a $2 million scam.

The touring company says it forked over the cash to a woman named Angela Wong, who posed as a successful promoter who'd previously brought Britney Spears over to China ... and said she could do the same with BSB.

The company says Wong promised she'd lock in the Boys for 10 concerts last March, but she eventually tried to postpone the scheduled dates. According to the suit, things really got fishy when the Backstreet Boys ended up coming to China around those dates ... but through a different promoter.

The suit says Wong gave back $640k when the company called her out, but now it's suing to get the rest of the money back ... plus damages.

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young's kids won't just be bicoastal -- they'll be bicontinental if she has her way ... she's just in no hurry to have 'em.

Iggy talked all about raising babies with us at LAX, making it clear she wants them to be proud Aussies as well as Americans.

She also dropped a tiny, tiny hint that maybe, just maybe she and the Lakers star have already traded "I Dos." Pay attention to her choice of words at the end of the clip. 

But something tells us Iggy's wedding won't go unnoticed.
