Jay Z Recordings Engineer Wants $220 MIL ... NY & L.A. Cops Ripped Me Off!
6/30/2016 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The man who insists he's the rightful owner of several Jay Z classic recordings is going after NYPD, LAPD and a slew of lawyers for seizing them -- and he wants a TON of money for his trouble.
Chauncey Mahan is the studio engineer who sued Jay Z over the masters for "Life and Times of S. Carter" and "The Dynasty" albums. Jay won that lawsuit, but now Mahan wants just about everyone else to pay up.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Mahan rips Jay Z's attorneys for telling cops the tapes were stolen property and part of an extortion plot. He also blames L.A. cops for seizing the tapes from his storage facility -- and cops in NY, where the recordings were actually made at Baseline Studios.
Oh yeah, he's suing the owner of the studio too.
He's pissed because LAPD is still holding the recordings, which he still believes belong to him, at least partially. For good measure he's also suing NYC and L.A. for $50 million each.
Here's the rest of the damages, in his eyes:
- LAPD $10 million
- NYPD $10 million
- Roc Nation lawyers $80 million
- Studio owner $20 million
In all, Mahan's suing for $220 million.
Well, well, well -- what have we here?
Louis Tomlinson, Baby Mama Custody Fight Over His Girlfriend
6/30/2016 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Louis Tomlinson is going to court for joint custody because he claims his baby mama is keeping him from their child because she hates his girlfriend, but she says the GF poses a security risk to the kid.
TMZ broke the story, the One Direction singer is now asking a judge to award him joint custody and equal access to 5-month-old Freddie, because recently she's been denying him access to the infant.
We're told Louis chalks the whole thing up to jealously. There have been lots of pics posted of him and Danielle Campbell, and he says the photos send her into a rage.
Louis says he and baby mama Briana Jungwirth have actually gotten along until recently and he was seeing the baby all the time, but things have now taken a turn for the worse.
As for Briana, we're told she says it's annoying that when Louis has the baby, he'll come back home smelling like perfume. But Briana's real problem ... she believes Danielle may be nothing more than a crazed fan who now knows her home address and gate security code.
We're also told Briana will object to joint custody if he has a nanny, because she feels that isn't true parenting on his part. She also wants to make sure the kid stays in the U.S.
Well, well, well -- what have we here?

We're told she didn't call cops because security found her phone and returned it.
'Straight Outta Compton' Most of Heller's Lawsuit Tossed ... Except for Two Scenes
6/30/2016 9:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
N.W.A's former manager Jerry Heller just got most of his lawsuit over "Straight Outta Compton" shot down in court -- but the case is still going forward because of one implication.
Heller sued the film's producers, feeling it was filled with defamatory lies about his dealings with the group. A federal judge didn't see it that way, ruling most of the movie did NOT defame Heller ... so he dismissed the suit.
However, the judge did rule Heller might have a point when it comes to 2 scenes. The first shows Heller (played by Paul Giamatti) telling Ice Cube, lawyers "are paid to make trouble" and "create problems where none exists." He was discouraging Cube from getting a lawyer to look over a contract.
The second scene shows Ice Cube telling a reporter about the incident with Heller.
That part of the case will go forward, but Heller still must prove the interaction with Cube didn't happen and that it was written into the script with malice.

Lisa Marie Presley My Ex Took a Hunka-Hunk of My Money
6/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lisa Marie Presley filed for divorce in part because she believes her husband has played fast and loose with her money.
TMZ broke the story, Lisa Marie filed divorce docs Friday to end her 12 year marriage to Michael Lockwood. Her lawyer, Ron Litz, says Michael ran the finances during their marriage and she didn't monitor any of it, including the Elvis money that came in.
We're told when the relationship started getting rocky, she noticed things ... in particular an enormous American Express bill ... more than $109,000. Shortly after she spotted the charge, AmEx sued her.
We're told Lisa Marie's legal team has now opened a forensic audit to determine where all the money went during their marriage.
As we reported, the couple had a postnup. We're told that document makes it clear ... all the Elvis money is hers.
We made several attempts to reach Michael, with no luck.

Kim Zolciak I'm Not Selling My 'Lazy' Daughter's Car
6/30/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Zolciak did not put her daughter on blast by calling her a deadbeat and selling her car to teach her a lesson.
Someone posted on a car sale website that Brielle's 2013 Jeep was up for sale for a reasonable $50k. The seller's description had these choice words, "This car belongs to my lazy daughter Brielle Bierman."
It looks legit enough ... there are even pics of the Jeep in the driveway of the former 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star. One of the photos was taken from the other side of Kim's gate.
We spoke with Kim, who says the Jeep's not for sale and she's looking into the person behind the post.
