Trump Hotel Sues NFL Player Over Wedding Reception

2/26/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0224-amber-justin-trump-towers-weddingDonald Trump's Chicago hotel is suing an NFL player and his bride for allegedly stiffing the hotel on a big wedding bill, but it seems from the lawsuit something went wrong during the reception.

Tennessee Titans linebacker Justin Staples tied the knot with Amber last June and, judging from the video, the reception was fun and lovely. They even had Afterglow Snacks, which, based on the menu, may have included cheeseburger sliders, buffalo wings, fried mac and cheese bites and BBQ spiced waffle fries.

Justin and Amber apparently drove a hard bargain before the wedding, because Trump International Hotel and Tower dropped their proposed fee to $79,484.

According to the lawsuit, Justin and Amber paid $30k, but that was it.

Now, here's a big clue. According to the lawsuit, at the end of the reception, the hotel slashed another $5,062.13 from the bill, so it seems like something happened ... maybe food wasn't served, the cake was wonky, the bar ran out of liquor, the joint shut down too early ... something.

Staples' agent tell us, Justin paid every penny he was obligated to pay and the claim is "baseless."

Rory McIlroy I'm No Bigot For Golfing With Trump I Just Respect The Office

2/24/2017 1:57 PM PST

0224_Rory-McIlroy_donald_trump_getty_tmxzRory McIlroy is firing back at people criticizing him for playing a round of golf with President Donald Trump ... saying it was out of respect for his title, NOT his political values.

The Northern Irish golf star released a statement Friday afternoon ... claiming he's been called a "bigot" and "fascist" for golfing with POTUS last week.

"Whether you respect the person who holds that position or not, you respect the office that he holds," McIlroy says.

 "This wasn't an endorsement nor a political statement of any kind. It was, quite simply, a round of golf. Golf was our common ground, nothing else."

"I've travelled all over the world and have been fortunate enough to befriend people from many different countries, beliefs and cultures."

"To be called a fascist and a bigot by some people because I spent time in someone's company is just ridiculous."

Muhammad Ali's Son Detained at Airport ... They Asked 'Are You Muslim?'

Exclusive Details

0224-muhammed-ali-jr

Muhammad Ali Jr. was detained for 2 hours at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport ... and he's ready to sue because he thinks it's because he's Muslim.

Ali Jr.'s spokesman, Chris Mancini, tells TMZ ... his client was returning from Jamaica with his mother, Khalilah Ali -- Ali's first wife -- on February 7 when immigration officers stopped them. She got through, but he was taken to a small room for 2 hours and questioned.

Mancini says Ali's 44-year-old son was asked twice if he's Muslim, and also where he got his name. He was traveling on a U.S. Passport.

Ali Jr. is looking into suing the U.S. Treasury and Homeland Security over the incident. Mancini believes it hints at a larger issue of profiling and discrimination. He's interested in filing the lawsuit as a class action.

Worth noting ... Feb. 7 was 4 days after a federal judge put the kibosh on President Trump's immigration ban. U.S. Customs and Border Protections told us it can't comment on individual travelers, but "all international travelers arriving in the U.S. are subject to CBP inspection."

Milo Yiannopoulos Sorry, Haters ... I Have a Plan to Stay in the U.S.

2/24/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223_milo-yiannopoulos_gettyWhen Milo Yiannopoulos quit Breitbart News the clock started ticking on his employment visa, but sadly, for his millions of haters ... he's already figured out a way to stay in America.

Milo is here under an O-1 visa for "aliens of extraordinary ability" -- his being journalism, we're guessing -- but without a U.S. employer to sponsor him, he'd be deported in 60 days. Sources in Milo's camp tell us he's not sweating deportation, because he's lined up a new sponsor.

We're told the people behind a secret new media venture Milo will be working with have agreed in principle to file the necessary paperwork. It's not a done deal yet, but as usual ... Milo's cocky confident he'll close the deal.

On the heels of taking multiple L's -- resigning from his senior editor gig at Breitbart, losing a book deal and a national speaking role -- Milo's trying to bounce back by releasing his book through a new publisher.

Long story short -- we're most likely stuck with him, America.
