Lil Wayne Sued Where Are My Panties? T-Shirt Model is Pissed

11/26/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


That hot woman on Lil Wayne's Trukfit clothing gear is accusing the rapper of snatching her image ... because she NEVER agreed to work with his company, and thinks he represents "misogyny."

Shanise Taylor is suing Weezy, and in the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- she admits posing for a 2011 photo session. She says she's not a professional model, and when the photog sent her the shots she figured that was the end of that. 

Then this year, she saw one of the pics pop up on a shirt made by Trukfit, a Weezy clothing line. In her suit, she even says Weezy's team doctored the photo to make it look like she wasn't wearing underwear.


Taylor says she never signed off on the shirts using her bod -- and, furthermore, she never would want her image "on apparel associated with misogyny and violence."

Taylor retained the Mase Lara law firm in Miami to take on Weezy. She claims she's been humiliated, and wants the shirts to disappear, plus an unspecified amount of damages for her troubles.

A rep for Lil Wayne had no comment.

Casey Kasem Kids Sue His Widow

breaking news

1125_jean-kasem_gettyCasey Kasem's kids and his brother think his widow abused him so badly it caused his 2014 death.

Julie, Mike and Kerri Kasem just filed a lawsuit against Jean Kasem for wrongful death. In the docs, they say Jean repeatedly blocked them from seeing their father, and they say that separation caused him great emotional distress.

The children along with Casey's brother, Mouner, say their father was doing as fine as could be -- considering he had dementia -- when Jean took him on a 7 day journey all over the Western U.S. ... but when they returned, he had a massive bed sore that was deeply infected, according to the docs.

The suit also says Casey's death, on Father's Day, was the result of a staph infection, UTI, and sepsis ... all brought on by Jean's neglect.

Jean dodged criminal charges for elder abuse back in May ... when L.A. prosecutors cited insufficient evidence of any wrongdoing. We're told that didn't sit well with Casey's children, and their frustration was part of their motivation to file this lawsuit.

They're suing for $250,000 for Casey's pain and suffering during his life, as well as a host of other damages.

Exclusive Details


A very sick pooch named Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is going to get a life-saving heart operation in the nick of time thanks to his namesake.

Dwayne, the dog, was all fur and bones with his mouth wired shut when L.A. shelter SPOT! found him. Turns out, Dwayne has a grade 6 heart murmur that requires a $4,500 surgery.

Someone started a GoFundMe page for the patient, and the two-legged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got wind of it. The actor has a real soft spot for dogs, and dropped $1,500 toward the $5k goal.

The Rock's not the only celeb to open his wallet ... we're told 'Real World' and "Hangover 2" star Jamie Chung donated $600 for a heart echo and x-rays.

As of now, the little guy's about $365 shy of the goal. The shelter plans on putting any extra cash it raises towards surgeries for other sick and injured dogs.

Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone Legal Docs Claim Mental Incompetence ... But Healthy Sexual Appetite

11/25/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

124_sumner-redstone_TMZViacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is in the middle of a legal war, with his ex-lover/caregiver fighting in court to regain control over decisions that will keep him alive ... and her arguments involve sex.

Manuela Herzer claims in legal docs she was once romantic and for a long time a close friend and confidant with the 92-year-old Redstone -- who also started Midway Games which produced Mortal Kombat -- and in September of this year he chose her to make medical decisions on his behalf.   

Herzer claims things changed radically just one month later when Redstone's health and mental state really deteriorated. She claims Redstone's people threw her out of his home and she no longer had the power to make medical decisions.

Herzer now claims Redstone was in such bad shape mentally he did not have the capacity to strip her of the power he gave her just a month earlier.

In her docs, Herzer suggests a marker showing Redstone's mental deterioration was when he started ignoring doctors orders. She says he "demands, to the extent he can be understood, to engage in sexual activity every day, even though Dr. Gold has repeatedly recommended that he abstain from daily sexual activity."

The docs also claim Redstone can't write, his signature is almost a straight line, "appearing as if someone moved the paper under his pen," he has "spontaneous crying spells" and can only converse in "brief grunted responses."

An attorney for Redstone tells us, "Ms. Herzer's claim that she filed this lawsuit out of concern for Mr. Redstone is preposterous."  They added, "It proves only that Ms. Herzer will stop at nothing to pursue her personal financial agenda."

A judge has yet to rule.
