Beyonce's thighs are so amazing, they can bend the laws of physics -- or she just got busted Photoshopping her own photos.
Beyonce posted this bikini photo to her website Tuesday, but you can clearly see one of the stairs behind her isn't level for some odd reason. Yeah, it could be the worst carpentry ever, but it's way more likely someone is terrible at concealing Photoshop on Bey's thigh gap.
It's not the first time Bey has been accused of tweaking photos -- fans accused her of increasing her gap once before ... while another showed her sitting with a visibly distorted wine glass.
Judge Tells Former Stylist
Go Follicle Yourself!
9/17/2014 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nicki Minaj just beat her hairstylist's ass in court after the judge wigged out.
Terrence Davidson had filed a $30 million lawsuit against Nicki ... claiming he helped design her multi-colored wigs and she in turn agreed to partner with him on a new line of the iconic hairpieces but then cut him out.
But the judge sided with Nicki ... dropping some serious wig knowledge in the process. Hizzoner explained there's nothing special about colored wigs ... anyone has a right to make them so Davidson's creative claim is bogus.
The judge called out 3 of Nicki's wigs to illustrate his point ... The Pink Upper Bun Wig, The Fox Fur Wig and the Pink High Top Wig.
The judge also said any so-called deal Davidson made with Nicki was vague -- nothing more than barber shop talk.
So case closed.

Iggy Azalea tried her best to hide from paparazzi -- and any talk about her sex tape scandal -- by going full ginger ... as in wearing a terrible red wig to walk through LAX Tuesday.
Iggy's lawyers will probably deny this is really her.
Beyonce & Jay Z
Eyeing Insane $85 Million Mansion
9/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce and Jay Z could be close to setting up shop on the west coast ... after taking multiple visits to a ridiculous $85 million Beverly Hills estate.
Our real estate sources tell us ... while they were living in L.A. over the summer they checked out a brand new 23,000 square foot cliffside palace twice.
In addition to panoramic views of Malibu and downtown L.A., the 8-bedroom, 15-bathroom house features an attached 16-car garage, infinity pool, wine cellar, and a 24-seat movie theater.
Jay and Bey got a taste of L.A. life this summer while leasing a mansion in exclusive Holmby Hills for a whopping $200,000/month! The mortgage on the Bev Hills crib would likely cost 'em way more than that.
Still, chump change for them.

August Alsina experienced multiple seizures after collapsing during a concert 24 hours ago ... and remains hospitalized Tuesday night.
A rep for the singer tells TMZ ... August is in the ICU of a New York City hospital and receiving treatment for the seizures. We broke the story when he fainted and fell off a stage Monday night.
The rep says doctors did not find any drugs -- other than marijuana -- in Alsina's system ... and at this point they believe the fainting was brought on by exhaustion and dehydration.
Linkin Park Fans
Too Young & Drunk, You're
Sunk With Cops
9/16/2014 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Linkin Park's teenage fans will be shown the door en masse Tuesday night ... if they don't obey the zero tolerance underage drinking policy at the band's SoCal concert.
Chula Vista PD just announced the band's gig at the Sleep Train Amphitheater tonight would be patrolled by extra cops looking to boot underage boozers ... inside and outside the venue. Illegal party animals will also be ticketed.
CVPD says the 21 and over crowd will also get 86'd immediately if they're visibly wasted. No warnings, no second chances ... and no refunds.
The venue's getting famous for its tough stance against concert boozers -- as cops went into crackdown mode earlier this year for Journey, Blake Shelton, One Republic, Nine Inch Nails, Rascal Flatts, and ... for some strange reason ... those always-wild Dave Matthews Band fans.
LP fans, you've been warned -- don't get sloshed before you mosh.
Trina's a Hypocrite
She's a Homewrecker Too
9/16/2014 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Trina has some nerve hating on Khloe Kardashian for stealing French Montana away from her ... because Trina did the exact same thing to French's wife ... so claim friends of French (FOF).
Trina's blasting French and Khloe in a new song "F*** Love" ... "You can keep that purse, you can keep that whip, you can have that bitch."
But FOF say the song should have been called "Karma" ... because she started banging French while he was still married.
We're told French had feelings for Trina ... but she was never "his main girl" ... so it's a case of no harm, no foul.
Final shot ...FOF say Trina's new song is a lame attempt to jump start her career off French and Khloe.
NFL/CBS Deceived Everyone
I NEVER Signed on for Football
9/16/2014 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rihanna is livid at the NFL and CBS ... claiming the league and the network had no right to make it look like she was part of the Ravens/Steelers Thursday night pre-game show ... and had no right to single her out when it was scrapped.
Sources connected with Rihanna tell TMZ ... the singer was pissed when someone sent her the joint NFL/CBS press release last week, with the headline, "CBS & NFL Network 'Run This Town' for Thursday Night Football Open with Music Featuring Rihanna & Narration by Don Cheadle."
In fact Rihanna never did anything special for the game ... all CBS/NFL did was license a Jay Z song that featured Rihanna.
Rihanna's rep tells TMZ, "Due to the misuse and misrepresentation of Rihanna's name and participation in connection to CBS TNF, CBS was not allowed to license and utilize the song 'Run This Town.' Roc Nation made the decision to not grant the song’s usage."
Translation: Because her name was used to promote the show, she felt she then had the right to block the production.
Rihanna also made it clear on social media Tuesday ... she is also angry that CBS yanked the production and insinuated it was because she was the victim of domestic violence.
CBS's plan was to use the Jay Z song along with a voiceover by Don Cheadle that would be customized for each match up -- but CBS said today the song will NOT be used.
We called CBS and the NFL ... so far, no comment.
Drops $40 Mil
On Sick House

Diddy is moving up the ranks of elite L.A. homeowners ... because TMZ has learned he just closed escrow on a $40 million estate in one of the most exclusive parts of the city.
The mogul now owns a European villa in Holmby Hills -- near where Michael Jackson died.
The estate has 8 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The main house is 17,000 square feet with a 3,000 square foot guesthouse. And, there's a separate spa house that has a steam room, massage room and beauty salon.
Of course the lagoon-style pool has a grotto.
The home is brand new ... built 6 months ago.
Diddy, with the help of mega-realtor Kurt Rappaport, was on the hunt for an L.A. home for years.
Slams CBS for Pulling Her
from Ravens Game
9/16/2014 5:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
7:53 AM PT -- CBS released a statement saying they will NOT use Rihanna's performance going forward, saying, "Beginning this Thursday, we will be moving in a different direction with some elements of our Thursday Night Football open. We will be using our newly created Thursday Night Football theme music to open our game broadcast."
It took a few days, but Rihanna is finally lashing out about CBS' decision to yank her musical opening from "Thursday Night Football" last week and air it this week instead ... and let's just say she's not happy.
With the Ray Rice scandal still fresh, and the Ravens set to play the Steelers, CBS opted not to run a taped musical segment featuring Rihanna ... seeing as she had been the victim of high-profile domestic violence.
But with the segment now set to air this week, Rihanna took to Twitter to blast CBS, writing, "CBS you pulled my song last week, now you wanna slide it back in this Thursday? NO, F*** you! Y'all are sad for penalizing me for this."
As for what she means by "penalizing" ... it's pretty clear she feels CBS will not allow her to move on from getting beaten by Chris Brown 5 years ago.
She followed that up by writing, "The audacity ..."
Rihanna was in Barbados Monday ... looking extremely good.
Iggy Azalea's Former BF
She Gave Me Permission
To Sell Sex Tape!
9/16/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea's former boyfriend/manager now claims Iggy signed her rights away to him, giving him legal authority to market their sex tape ... TMZ has learned.
Hefe Wine says Iggy signed a lengthy agreement with him in 2009 -- obtained by TMZ -- which gives him exclusive rights to "manufacture, sell, distribute and advertise 'any' recording embodying visual images."
Iggy signed the contract to cut records and music videos, but Wine believes all he has to do is put a music bed under the sex tape which he claims would then give him exclusive rights to sell it.
In other words, he believes Iggy has no legal ability to block a sex tape if he wants to sell it ... with Vivid Entertainment boss Steven Hirsch waiting in the wings with a seven-figure offer.
What's more ... the contract provides that Wine has the legal right to create, host and maintain a website to market Iggy's works, so he believes he could create a website which would host the video.
French Montana's Ex Calls Khloe a Bitch
In New Diss Rap
9/16/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rapper Trina is on the attack ... BLASTING her ex French Montana and Khloe Kardashian for screwing behind her back -- and TMZ obtained a snippet of her new anger filled track about the affair.
Trina never mentions either French or Khloe by name in the new song called "F*** Love" feat. Tory Lanez ... but sources close to the rapper tell us their tryst last year was definitely the track's inspiration.
Trina doesn't pull punches ... insinuating French tried to play her for a fool -- and referring to Khloe with the line, "You can keep that bitch!"
As we previously reported ... Trina and French were living together in New Jersey when Khloe came on the scene. Sources close to the couple said Trina was devastated by the break-up.
So, what does Trina think now that Khloe and French are done? We reached out to her about the break-up and the track ... no word back yet.
