Wu-Tang Clan ain't as crazy as you thought -- they just sold a single top secret album for more than $1 MILLION, and what IS crazy is ... the buyer can't share the music publicly!!
You'll recall the Wu announced it had spent 6 years recording a double album called "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" ... and would auction it off. Not a copy, but THE only album. Well, Forbes says the bizarre plan worked -- it sold at auction for a "price in the millions."
The American buyer wants to remain anonymous, like the record itself.
Part of the deal is he or she must wait 88 years to release the 31 cuts to the public -- which means RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Method Man et al. will NEVER hear the music played in a club or on the radio. On the plus side ... they'll probably die rich.
The Game is calling out Instagram ... saying he's the victim of a double standard because Kim Kardashian can flash her bare ass, but his junk's getting shut down.
We broke the story ... IG plans to delete his attempt to break the Internet -- the 2 famous shots of his manhood outlined in boxer briefs. Game tells us he had no idea the IG cops were busting him ... and he's shocked since the pics have been up for a month.
It also doesn't add up for him since Kim K's IG is full of sexy photos, including her Paper cover and the naked pregnant shot where she's holding her boobs.
R&B legend "Uncle" Charlie Wilson is at war with his brother over just who exactly IS The Gap Band ... and who gets to keep making money off of the name.
Ronnie Wilson filed a lawsuit claiming Charlie is derailing his efforts to launch a comeback tour. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ronnie says he recently booked 2 big gigs -- one at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, and another at Howard Theatere in Washington, D.C.
Ronnie says after he sealed the deals, Charlie -- who left the band in 2009 -- had his people step in and somehow interfere with the bookings. Ronnie says both venues pulled the plug.
The elder Wilson points out his band existed for years before kid bro Charlie joined in '72.
Ronnie says his new Gap Band stood to make more than $20k from the 2 gigs. He's suing for damages and to get the court to block Charlie from interfering with future bookings.
His point -- you might have been the lead singer, but this band is MINE, bro.
The Biebs was tooling around Bev Hills Tuesday on a Uscooter, after cancelling appearances in NYC. As we reported, Bieber had something of a mental meltdown, which caused wild mood swings and bizarre behavior over the last few weeks. He's also dealing with "personal issues."
Our sources say he needs time to himself. The scooter may not solve his problems, but every little bit helps.
Romeo took a page out of Shakespeare -- the playwright who inspired his name -- who once wrote, "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" ... that seems to be the fate he wishes for his mom's attorney.
Romeo unleashed his anger on the attorneys who just served him with a lawsuit filed by his own mother, claiming he conspired with Master P to screw her out of money.
Sonya Miller sued Romeo, but he says she's a puppet and her lawyers are pulling the strings ... "Today I was SERVED by my own mother and although it hurts, I know that she can't be 100% behind all of these ridiculous moves but instead is being guided by another's greed."
Romeo says, "It sucks because the only reason I've ever worked so hard was to make my mother proud."
He says he hasn't spoken with his mom in months. He then blames the media for fueling these stories by spreading "rumors" he was hiding money. Fact is, that's what his mom alleges in her lawsuit against him.
"Shahs of Sunset" star Jessica Parido wants to wash her hands clean of husband Mike Shouhed, and she's willing to give back her 4.5 carat rock to do it.
Sources close to Jess tell us when she walked out on Mike in August she left with only two small bags and her engagement ring ... worth around $200k. She left behind their two dogs and her wardrobe (mostly purchased by Mike) because she wants nothing to do with him or his money.
Although the box for spousal support was checked on the divorce docs -- we're told it was a mistake on her lawyer's part ... since Jessica doesn't want a dime.
Jess and Mike were only married for 4 months when she walked out. As for the wedding gifts ... that might have to be sorted out in court, since they haven't yet discussed what to do with them. They haven't even sent 'thank you' notes yet!
We're told their split will be featured on the next season of 'Shahs.'
Ads for Amazon's new series, “The Man in the High Castle,” came off like Nazi propaganda to some New Yorkers ... so the ads are getting yanked.
Seats on NYC subway cars were wrapped in flags featuring the Nazi eagle and iron cross as well as Japan's rising sun. If you haven't 'High Castle' imagines what the world -- especially the U.S. -- would be like if the Axis powers won World War II.
While the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) told us Monday they received only 1 complaint and wouldn't be taking them down ... it seems Amazon wanted to avoid controversy.
Probably because the show is already getting rave reviews.
