Exclusive Details

1026-jules-michael-wainstein-tmzJules Wainstein's ex tried to pull a fast one by renting out an NYC apartment he had no business hawking because SHE owns it ... according to a new lawsuit, but he denies any wrongdoing.

Michael Wainstein is being sued by Jonathan Sheffer -- a famous conductor -- who says he needed to lease a place for his nanny, and Michael offered the pad ... at a premium. In the suit, Sheffer says Michael demanded more than $20k for rent, security deposit and broker fees.

Sheffer agreed and signed the lease, but according to the docs ... he had maintenance issues with the place, which led to his big discovery -- Michael wasn't the owner.

Sheffer thinks Michael was taking the cash for personal use. He's suing for a complete refund, plus damages.

Wainstein's attorney tells us Sheffer's the one in the wrong, and claims he breached the terms of the lease and is simply looking for "a creative way to cancel his obligations." He adds ... Michael denies all the allegations, and plans to file his own lawsuit against Sheffer.

Breaking News

1025-amber-jim-marchese-virgin-airlines-TMZ-01A Virgin America flight attendant is a bald-faced liar who had 'Real Housewives' star James Marchese arrested for a fight with his wife that never went down ... so says James in new lawsuit. 

James and Amber Marchese just filed suit against Virgin America and flight attendant Moriah Rosser, who the Marcheses claim lied to cops when she said she saw James choking Amber on the plane.

James and Amber claim in the docs Moriah straight-up told them she didn't like James after recognizing him from their show. After James fell asleep in his seat, the couple claims cops stormed the plane and cuffed James ... based on what they say Moriah falsely reported. 

We broke the story ... James was arrested for domestic violence in April, but had the charges against him dropped. He told us he'd be suing Virgin America ... and it looks like he made good on his promise -- now they're suing for major damages. 

Virgin America tells TMZ the lawsuit has no merit and it'll defend itself and Moriah in court.

1021-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-getty-tmz-02Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian still have separate living arrangements -- and that won't change before their baby arrives -- but they've got a co-parenting plan in place ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Chyna's house is going to be home base when the baby girl is born next month, but Rob's not dodging diaper duty. We're told he and Chyna are getting along well right now, and he's been staying at her house for a few weeks.

The plan is to share parental duties at Chyna's nest, but Rob isn't selling his Calabasas home just yet. Fact is ... their relationship is volatile and when things go south, Rob retreats to his place, we're told.

But for now the plan is to be one happy family under one roof, and ultimately find a new house. Rob had been looking, but didn't find anything.

We're told they'll start looking together after the the baby's born and things settle down.

It could have an adverse effect on her cheese ball intake ... just ask Honey Boo Boo.

Teresa Giudice 'Prostitution Whore' Is My Friend Again ... Namaste

10/20/2016 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-teresa-giudice-instagram-01Teresa Giudice and the woman she called a "prostitution whore" on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' are back in the friend zone ... and they brought their yoga mats with them. 

Sources close to Teresa and Danielle Staub tell us ... the former foes connected for the first time since Danielle left the show in 2010 by taking a yoga class together. Teresa reached out to Danielle after she heard she was tweeting out support for her during her family and legal problems.

We're told Teresa fell in love with yoga -- something Danielle has done for a long time -- while she was in prison ... so it was the perfect idea for their reunion. 

It seems like the friend date was legit too, because 'RHONJ' isn't filming right now ... which probably made things even more peaceful.

1019-blac-chyna-tyga-kylie-jenner-tmz-02Blac Chyna is pissed at Tyga for jacking her Ferrari birthday party plans for their son, and adding his own bells and whistles to outdo her ... and she smells a rat behind the whole mess.

A source close to Chyna tells TMZ ... she believes a production staffer on her reality show fed Tyga and Kylie Jenner all the details of her party for King -- which she spent 2 months planning. We're told Tyga and Kylie were invited to the Saturday event, but no-showed ... then threw their bigger copycat bash the next day.

Chyna says she's happy her son enjoyed the birthday double up, but as a mother ... it was a slap in the face. Plus, it's insult to injury if someone from her own show tipped off her enemy.

Co-parenting. It ain't for everyone.
