Ivanka Trump Sued Shoe Competitor Wants Her Kicked to Curb

6/22/2016 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-ivanka-trump-tmz-02update_graphic_red_bar10:05 AM PT -- Matthew Burris, CFO for Marc Fisher -- Ivanka's licensing company -- says, "This is a baseless lawsuit aimed at generating publicity. The shoe in question is representative of a trending fashion style, is not subject to intellectual property law protection and there are similar styles made by several major brands."

He adds, "The lawsuit is without merit and we will vigorously defend ourselves against the claim." update_grey_gray_barIvanka Trump's shoe line is a shameless knockoff of a wildly popular Italian stiletto ... so claims the Italian shoemaker.

Aquazzura claims in a new lawsuit, Ivanka's Hettie shoe is almost a carbon copy of its Wild Thing pump ... a shoe that protects the feet of the famous-ish, including Solange and Olivia Palermo.

Aquazzura points to the color, shape and silhouette, as well the fringe covering the toes to the tassel on the heel.

Aquazzura says Ivanka jacked their shoes before ... copying its Belgravia shoe and calling it Necila, and also copying its Forever Marilyn shoe and calling it Teagin Pointy Toe Pump with Tassel.

That's shoe biz ...

Whitney Houston Emmy Battle Heading for Court

6/22/2016 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-whitney-houston-emmy-gettyWhitney Houston's only Emmy award is about to go up for auction IF Emmy honchos fail in their last ditch effort to block the sale ... TMZ has learned.

The Television Academy says it's going into court Wednesday morning to request a restraining order against Heritage Auctions ... which plans to put Whitney's 1986 Emmy statuette up for grabs on Friday.

Heritage is hawking the award on behalf of Whitney's estate -- but the Television Academy has strict rules about its awards. According to the Academy, all winners sign an agreement that their heirs or successors must "return the statuette to the Academy, and we hold it in storage in memory of the recipient.”

A rep for Heritage tells TMZ ... they've asked the Academy multiple times to produce Whitney's signature on that agreement, but no dice to this point. Heritage says it's moving forward unless a judge drops the hammer.

They expect the award to sell for upwards of $10,000. By the way, Whitney won the Emmy for her performance on the Grammys. Weird, right?

Nick Young Gets Short End of Stick In Iggy Breakup

6/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-nick-young-iggy-azalea-engagement-ring-02Iggy Azalea drives a hard bargain ... she's also now driving a 1962 Impala that Nick Young has given her as a parting gift.

We've learned that Iggy and Nick struck a deal ... he gets the engagement ring back and she gets the car she had given him for Xmas. 

Here's the breakdown ... the ring is 10.43 carats, and reportedly valued at half a mil.  

As for the whip ... a '62 Impala is a classic ... a cherry one can go for as much as $100k. 

It sounds like Nick made off like a bandit, but here's the twist. In California, and most states, an engagement ring is a gift in contemplation of marriage and if the nuptials never happen, the ring -- by law -- goes back to him.

As for the Impala, it was not tied to the marriage -- it was a Christmas gift -- so he did not have to give it back.   

Now you know, Nick ... for next time.

Anton Yelchin Jeep Recalls Backed Up ... Customers Fear Fatalities

6/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-anton-yelchin-tmz-jeep-02Anton Yelchin's death is sending Jeep owners into a tailspin as they scramble to repair the flaw that likely caused the actor's fatal freak accident.

Several Jeep dealerships around the country tell us calls have been pouring in from panicked owners of the Grand Cherokee Laredo who are worried they'll suffer the same fate as Anton ... if their gear shifter isn't fixed pronto.

Problem is ... we've learned that not all dealerships have the 4-hour software fix yet, and those that do are backed up with a wait list ... 60 deep in some cases. We're told some spots won't have it until July.

TMZ broke the story ... Anton's SUV had not gotten the recall repair after a notice was issued in May.

We're told Jeep employees are giving owners tutorials to avoid the potentially deadly problem until their vehicles can get fixed.

Prince Singer with Him During Overdose ... Also with MJ Before He Died

6/22/2016 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0622-prince-judith-mj-getty-01Even in death, Prince and Michael Jackson have something in common -- singer Judith Hill, who is opening up about what she saw the night Prince overdosed on his private jet.

Hill was on board the flight that made the emergency landing in Moline, IL ... and says she was talking to him when "his eyes fixed" and he nodded off. She told the NY Times she would have thought he just nodded off if she hadn't been "looking into his face."

But she says she immediately realized it was a medical issue and alerted an assistant and the pilot to put the plane down. TMZ broke the story -- Prince had suffered an overdose on Percocet, and emergency responders had to give him a save shot.

Hill -- who spent long hours recording and performing with Prince at Paisley Park -- NEVER mentions anything about his addiction. She refused to discuss his treatment in Moline, but said he reached out to Dr. Michael Schulenberg afterward "because he was concerned, and he wanted to do the right thing for his body."

Prince died six days later from an overdose of Fentanyl.

Interestingly, Hill rehearsed with Jackson days before his death -- she famously dueted with him in "This Is It." Dark coincidence, but there's your trivia answer.

Former 'Doctors' Host Stylist Wants to Give Doc Dressing Down ... In Court

6/22/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-rachael-ross-dress-damaged-MAIN-getty-01Dr. Rachael Ross, a former host on "The Doctors," threw a hissy fit over her Daytime Emmy dress, ruined it and stiffed the stylist ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Stylist Ali Levine claims in a new small claims court lawsuit she did God's work trying to get Rachael ready for the big shindig last month, only to get the boot without getting full payment.

A rep for Ali tells TMZ, she worked with Rachael, fitting her in a one-of-a-kind Pia Gladys Perey gown, which she says Rachael ruined by smearing makeup all over it.  

We're told the designer went the extra mile and offered Rachael other options, but the doc went all diva, rejecting them all and eventually hiring another stylist.

Ali isn't suing for the ruined dress ... the designer owned it. But she wants full payment for all her time. She's suing for the balance ... $559.75.

Sounds like a good case for "The People's Court." Hint.
