Nipsey Hussle Spell My Name Right Or There's No Show

5/1/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_nipsy_hussle_compositeNipsey Hussle has his priorities when he performs, caring way more about credit than booze.

We got hold of the rapper's rider from an Atlanta gig. Money is at the top of the list -- payment in crisp $100 bills ... we're told 250 of them. Next in line is promotion -- "All advertisements MUST use the proper spelling and correct pronunciation." 

Nipsey also won't play to an empty house ... he'll only go onstage if the venue's at 25% capacity, minimum. 

The rapper's pretty easy to please in the food and beverage dept -- 2 bottles of Moet -- although he does demand Polo crewnecks at his ready disposal. 

Now that's some sweet fashion hustle.

Lionel Richie Hello, Would You Like To Buy My Makeup?

4/30/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-lionel-richie-makeup-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Lionel Richie wants you to stay pretty all night long -- and that appears to be the hook for the cosmetic line he wants to launch.

The singer launched his new business endeavor last week when his company filed a trademark for "Hello By Lionel Richie."

The copyright covers just about everything beauty related ... cosmetics, face masks, body glitter, bath beads, hair bows, nail polish, etc.

And there's a separate trademark for candles and candle accessories.

Hello ... way better than Brickhouse cosmetics. 

Starbucks Sued Again Easy On The Ice!! And Pay Us $5 Million

4/30/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_starbucks_compositeStarbucks is shorting cold drink lovers by loading up on ice cubes, and one thirsty Illinois customer's so pissed about it ... she's filed a lawsuit.

The issue, according to docs ... is not getting the advertised amount of beverage. For example, a venti is supposed to be 24 ounces, but the suit says more often you get as little as 14 because "large pieces of ice take up more space."

It's hardly rocket science, but the slighted customer is seeking damages in excess of $5 million.

Starbucks says the lawsuit is absurd because ... "Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage." It says it will gladly remake any beverage for an unsatisfied customer.

Starbucks was also sued last month for hot beverages being grossly underfilled.

Jenna Jameson Accused of Riding Ex BF's New Chick

4/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-amber-miller-jenna-jameson-instagram-tmz-4Porn legend Jenna Jameson is a serious 'Mean Girl' ... according to Tito Ortiz's current gf, who says Jenna's cyberbullying her so hard she needs a restraining order.

Ex-UFC octagon girl Amber Miller says Jenna stirred up her social media minions to attack her during a "self-proclaimed roast" of Amber. In docs, Amber says Jenna told her thousands of followers to "go after" Amber and they responded.

Amber says she's been flooded with death wishes and taunts from team Jenna, and claims Jenna threatened to throw acid on her face -- which is why she filed a request for a restraining order.

Amber says the harassment's been going on ever since she started dating ex-UFC star Tito ... who, of course, has 2 kids with Jenna.

Jenna now has to stay 100 yards away from Amber -- and stop all forms of harassment.

EXCLUSIVE

Jack Gleeson -- aka King Joffrey from "Game of Thrones" -- resurfaced far beyond The Wall, at a cosplay conference in Abu Dhabi, acting like a shell of his former 'GoT' character.

No heads on spikes here ... just some good old fashioned Madonna-like "Vogue" and robot dance moves while Jack cut loose backstage with hot gamer chick Naomi Kyle.

In case you're out of the loop ... Jack quit TV and film acting after his 'GoT' run to start his own theater company with his buddies ... so we're calling this a rare sighting.

0421_rainbow_over_prince_house_acgoodyear-twitterA vibrant rainbow graced the skies above Prince's home Thursday ... hours after he died.

Mourners were paying their respects outside Paisley Park when the rain stopped, the skies opened and the rainbow appeared. 

It's interesting ... hours after Nancy Reagan died in March, a rainbow appeared over the home she shared with President Reagan.

Kylie Jenner & Blac Chyna Gotcha! Now Claim BFF Status

Breaking News

0421_blac_chyna_kylie_jenner_instagramKylie Jenner and Blac Chyna pulled the wool over on EVERYONE ... the famous enemies now say there was never any beef between them over Tyga or Rob Kardashian

Kylie and Blac Chyna just did a Snapchat together (complete with face swap). From the looks of it, Chyna's made it over enemy lines and into one of her future in-laws' homes. 

Kylie captioned the images cheekily, "When we've been best friends the whole time..."

We ain't buying it was fake all along, but it at least LOOKS like they've buried the hatchet over Kylie banging BC's baby daddy -- and Chyna banging KJ's bro.

Blac Chyna also posted with her own caption: "Hanging out with my lil sis."

Celebrity Makeup Artist Busted for Stabbing Sister With an Umbrella

4/20/2016 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420-sharon-launch-instagram-02A big-time celeb makeup artist who's worked with Madonna, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga ... got arrested after cops say she stabbed her sister with an umbrella.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they were called to Sharon "Mama Makeup" Gault's home Monday in Santa Monica for a loud dispute. When they arrived, cops say Sharon and her sister had gotten into it, and Sharon's weapons of choice were a wooden clothes hanger and umbrella.

We're told Sharon connected with the hanger multiple times then picked up the umbrella and used it in a "stabbing motion." Her sister had minor scratches and bruises but refused medical treatment.

It's unclear what started the fight. Sharon was booked for assault with a deadly weapon.

Beverly Hilton Sued They Made Me Drink Liquid Nitrogen!!!

4/19/2016 5:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0419_beverly-hilton-toxic-drink-composite

It doesn't take a chemist to know ... you can't substitute liquid nitrogen for vodka ... so claims a man who says he got a most unwelcome specialty cocktail at the famed Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Jeremy Cox claims he was at a fancy shindig in August at the hotel where Whitney Houston died, when the bartender offered him and his wife a "specialty cocktail." He claims the bartender said, "You need to drink them right away."

Jeremy says he gulped it down, and immediately gasped, turned pale and collapsed. His wife thought he was dead.

Turns out, according to Jeremy, instead of getting a drink cooled by liquid nitrogen, he was actually served a glass of liquid nitrogen. 

As for his injuries, Jeremy says the drink burned his mouth, esophagus and stomach. And when he hit the ground he suffered head trauma.

We contacted the hotel Merv Griffin once owned ... so far, no word back.

Christian Slater My Dad Almost Killed Me Before I Was Born

4/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

41816-christian-slater-tmzChristian Slater doesn't need a medical degree to know his father is suffering from manic depressive schizophrenia -- he says he's gotten all the evidence he needs from his mother.

The "Mr. Robot" star just filed docs to get his dad Thomas Knight Slater's defamation lawsuit tossed, and in the docs he says his mother first told him about his father's diagnosis. He says she told him Thomas was taken to Bellevue Hospital in a straitjacket in 1972 after threatening to kill her and Christian.

He adds his father also pushed his mom into a busy street when she was pregnant with Christian ... according to her.

And there's this -- Christian included copies of rambling postcards he says his dad sent ... telling Christian he'd be nothing without him. For instance, one read ... "I take FULL CREDIT: I'm the vital ingredient." 

We broke the story, Thomas sued his son for talking about his diagnosis in an interview.

Christian says his dad, an actor, hasn't worked since 1988 due to his mental health issues.

Stripper Pole Lawsuit I Broke My Pelvis On Your Bus Pole

4/18/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0415_party_bus_composite

A woman claims she broke her pelvis falling off a stripper pole mounted on a bus during a bachelorette party, and she says the bus company is to blame.

Lacey Laatiks and her friends rented a bus from a L.A. based company for a round trip between San Diego and Temecula, where they hit up 4 wineries. On the ride home she says the bus swerved, causing Lacey's hands to slip off the pole.

Lacey claims in her lawsuit she landed on her side and the fall caused multiple pelvic fractures requiring metal braces and screws. She says she rode home in agony and when the bus finally stopped she was just thrown on the lawn and left.

She insists the company's to blame because it should have never let her dance, swing, and hang on the pole while the bus was traveling at freeway speeds. 

She does not say if drinking was involved, but if we could guess ...

We have reached out to the company for comment, so far no word back.

Chanel West Coast Job 1 at Coachella Is NO Going #2!

4/17/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chanel West Coast is happy to TALK about dropping a deuce at Coachella ... as long as it's only talk because she has some very strict rules about the music fest and porta-potties.

We got the "Ridiculousness" star right after she did some pre 'chella prep at a tanning salon, and she spoke openly -- maybe too much -- about her phobia.

Check out CWC's revelation ... and a little explanation for her now infamous "Don't You Know Who I Am" incident last year at Coachella.

Our advice for Chanel: Eat nothing. Drink very little.

Weedmaps Wages War on Competing Pot Co. You're Just a Clone, Dude

4/11/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0408-weedmaps-lawsuit-TMZ-FUN-ART_03Weedmaps -- a map locator for pot dispensaries -- wants some serious green from a rival potter.

Weedmaps claims a company called Where's Weed has gained access to its client info, tricking dispensaries into coughing up login info that would allow Where's Weed to sync up the pot menus.

For you non potheads, that means Where's Weed would get a glimpse into the services Weedmaps provides and then try to steal business.

What's more, Weedmaps believes the logo Where's Weed is using confuses customers ... especially those under the influence.

WM claims it's lost more than $5k in the last 12 months ... roughly a lb of high quality cheebah.

We reached out to Where's Weed ... so far no word back.
