Stacks on stacks on stacks on stacks!!

Floyd Mayweather broke the bank for the opening of his new Vegas strip club -- wheeling bags and bags of money into his whip to make sure his new joint is thunderstrormin' from the minute it opens. 

Floyd is the man behind Girl Collection in Vegas -- what he describes as an "upscale" gentleman's club featuring exotic dancers from all over the world. 

The club opens this week. Floyd's clearly prepared. 

La La Anthony Hits NYC Strip Club ... After Split from Melo

4/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

La La Anthony didn't let her split from Carmelo Anthony keep her from spending her weekend in one of NYC's top strip clubs ... but this time, it was more business than pleasure. 

We've learned La La hit up Sapphire New York on Friday night -- but sources tell us she wasn't throwing around singles and partying it up, she was there to shoot footage for her new TV show. 

La La is a producer on a docu-series called "Goal Diggers" -- about women in risque industries (strippers and video girls) who break out and become mainstream businesswomen. 

We're told one of the women in the series works at Sapphire, so La La and some crew members hit up the club to shoot footage. 

It just so happened her good friend French Montana was there (he was there to party) -- so they kicked it together inside the building.

We spoke with French in NYC on Monday who told us La La is doing so well since the split, he came up with a new nickname for her.

Ellie Goulding Rides Ex in Midair For 'Magic Mike Live'

4/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ellie Goulding ran into her ex bf during his gig in "Magic Mike Live," and decided to take him for a ride ... suspended above the stage.

Ellie was sitting front row Saturday at the new Las Vegas revue when her ex, Jackson Williams, pulled her onstage for one of his airborne stunts. You can probably figure it out from the video, but the stunt is called the "air f***."

Sources at the show tell us a bachelorette is supposed to be called up for the segment, but Jackson called an audible and chose Ellie instead. She didn't seem to mind catching up with her former backup dancer turned bf.

We're guessing Ellie felt safe with a guy who's been trained by Channing Tatum himself.

V Live Strip Club Happy Fan Gets Double-Teamed In Wild Memphis Casting Call

4/23/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

V Live Memphis knows the best things come in pairs -- like 2 girls twerking in unison, or one guy getting danced on by 2 chicks at the same time.

The new strip joint had 200 girls audition in hopes of joining the V Live team in Memphis ... at a new $10 million state of the art facility. We're told 125 dancers were chosen and 100 more from other V Live clubs joined them for the grand opening on Friday night.

The best part of the casting process was saved for the guys in attendance who got plucked out of the crowd to play a part in the live clinics the dancers put on.

Those will cost you a lot more now that the club's officially open.

Carmelo Anthony Allegedly Knocked Up Dancer ... La La Pissed

4/18/2017 12:50 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Carmelo Anthony was messing around with a woman who now claims she's pregnant with his baby -- and as you can imagine, his wife, La La, is pissed ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Multiple sources tell us ... the other woman often works at a gentlemen's club in NYC, and we're told she's claiming to be 6 and a half months pregnant with Melo's child. 

We're also told she has made it clear to Melo she expects him to kick in for medical expenses and other baby related costs. 

Sources close to both Melo and La La are telling us the marriage has been rocky for a while -- and while the pregnancy wasn't the tipping point, it certainly didn't help.

So far, neither side has filed divorce papers but we're told there's virtually zero chance of a reconciliation. 

Amber Rose Shot Down in Ace of Diamonds War

4/8/2017 7:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose is in danger of losing her bid to own the rights of the Ace of Diamonds name, because her request has been shot down ... for now.

Amber's applied to use the name Ace of Diamonds for "entertainment services in the nature of live dance performances" and "gentlemen's clubs featuring exotic dancing."  The application just got rejected because it would cause confusion in the marketplace, since an AOD and Ace of Emeralds already exists.

Kinda funny ... the docs cite past  trademark rejections as precedent -- Mister Stain is likely to be confused with Mr. Clean in the cleaning products biz, and Tuna O' the Farm is likely to be confused with Chicken of the Sea in canned foods.

Amber has 6 months to reapply with a more compelling argument.   Feels like an uphill climb.

Channing Tatum Grills Vegas 'Magic Mike Live' Dancers

4/5/2017 10:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "Magic Mike Live" cast doesn't need more meat on their bones, but got some anyway ... courtesy of Channing Tatum, who grilled for the guys on their day off.

The live stage version of the movie is in previews in Sin City, and the guys have been rehearsing nonstop. Channing's not in it, but has been there consulting, and decided to reward the cast with a family-style BBQ.

We're told the party was thrown at the $5 million Airbnb crib that Channing's been staying outside of Vegas for free. It's in the same ritzy hood as Wayne Newton’s famous estate.

Looks like the guys kept their shirts on for most of the party. Savin' it for the stage, we guess.

Jon Gosselin Stripping Debut Reveals Nothing ... Anyone Disappointed?

4/2/2017 8:14 AM PDT

Jon Gosselin got more dressed up than down for his big debut as a male stripper, and about the only skin he showed was his legs ... in a grass skirt.

The former reality star took the stage Saturday night in Atlantic City, and slipped into all kinds of outfits -- Secret Service agent, firefighter and even a hula dancer -- but never once took off his shirt or pants.

So much for weeks of rehearsing. Walk ... squeeze fake fire hose nozzle ... walk again. Still, women put a few bucks in Jon's waistband.

Guess they were happy to NOT see much.

Jon Gosselin I'm a Stripper Now

EXCLUSIVE

Jon Gosselin will make his debut as a stripper at a club in Caesars Atlantic City.

Management at Dusk Nightclub tells us ... the former reality TV star got involved through friends who are running the show -- called "Untamed Male Revue."

We're told it's burlesque-style, a la "Magic Mike" and "Thunder From Down Under." It's not a "hump your face" kind of thing.

Jon will be stripping down to his undies ... sorry ladies.

Jon's been rehearsing for a few weeks, even working out.

By the way ... the show debuts on April 1, Jon's birthday. No, not a cruel joke.

Bow Wow celebrated his big 3-0 two weeks ago but that hasn't stopped his party train from rolling into strip club after strip club with stacks to blow.

Bow Wow's latest stop was Club Onyx in Dallas Wednesday. It was thrown together last minute but Bow Wow still managed to shell out over $15k on the dance floor and even got a FaceTime call from Snoop!

Famous ATL Strip Club Sued Ex-Dancer Alleges Sex, Drugs and 'Bill Cosby Special'

3/2/2017 1:58 PM PST

An ex-stripper from Atlanta's famous Cheetah gentlemen's club claims it's a center for organized crime where dancers are drugged so high-end patrons can rape them ... according to a lawsuit.

Alison Valente says she witnessed nonstop illegal activity at the strip joint starting in 2010. In docs, she says there's a secret "menu" for ordering illicit drugs and sex acts from the entertainers -- which includes something called the "Bill Cosby Special" ... where girls unwilling to perform sex acts are unknowingly given a date rape drug.

She says in docs, at least 7 women were sexually assaulted -- one by the club's owner and one by an assistant to a city official. Valente says she was drugged at least twice. She has little memory of what happened, but claims managers tried to convince her she willingly engaged in lewd acts.

Valente claims she was fired in 2015 after blowing the whistle on illegal activity -- including prostitution and drug trafficking. She doesn't just want money, she wants the club shut down.

Attorneys Steve Sadow and Kevin Ward for The Cheetah tell us ... Valente is a disgruntled, fired ex-stripper seeking personal revenge and financial gain, claiming she's privately demanded at least $5 million.
