Sammy Hagar Old Cabo Wabo Co. Sues One Shot to Stop Using Our Name!!

12/4/2016 1:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-cabo-wabo-grill-tequila-gettySammy Hagar's gotta be pissed -- a Cabo Wabo restaurant that doesn't serve tequila sounds like a ripoff, and that's exactly what it is ... according to a lawsuit filed by Sammy's old brand.

Campari America -- which bought the rocker's chain of nightclubs, restaurants and tequila -- says 2 San Diego-based restaurants ripped off its trademark name to confuse customers looking for the real deal.

According to docs, both Cabo Wabo Grill and Cabo Wabo Grill 2 -- opened in 2010 and 2013 -- knowingly used the name's established popularity to attract patrons. What's worse, Campari says the joints don't have proper licences to serve liquor ... so they can't even sell Cabo Wabo tequila shots!

Campari is demanding the grill owners change the names and fork over some dough for damages. We reached out to the restaurant owners ... but no word back.

Sammy's not involved in the suit.

Blink 182's Mark Hoppus Oakland Tragedy Exposes Danger of Underground Music Scene

12/4/2016 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Oakland rave fire hit close to home for Blink 182 singer Mark Hoppus, who says he and his band are probably lucky they didn't suffer a similar tragedy.

Mark was at the Grove in L.A. Saturday night when we asked about his experience coming up in the underground music scene. He's played gigs in makeshift venues like the art commune in Oakland -- and admits fire safety just isn't top priority when you're an up and coming act.

Hindsight is 20/20, but after this tragedy ... Mark says the industry has to be better about policing itself.

Justin Bieber to Paps I'm Super Normal ... Namaste

12/4/2016 8:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber worked up a sweat in the boxing ring, and then got all zen on photogs waiting for him outside the gym.

Justin was dripping wet on his way out of Ten Goose Boxing -- the Van Nuys, CA gym where he's been sparring lately, and apparently picking up some wisdom.

He's lectured his fans recently about screaming during concerts, and he echoed that for the paparazzi ... begging them to understand he's just a "super normal" dude.

Bigger concern in this video? That's a LOT of sweat on those leather seats.

Oakland Rave Fire Commune Leader Whines About Losing Stuff ... Internet Lashing Out

12/4/2016 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1204-derick-icon-oakland-fire-facebook-status-FACEBOOK-01The new wave of outrage in Oakland's tragic warehouse fire is against Derick Ion -- the guy who ran the art commune that turned into a death trap ... and TMZ has learned he's already had legal troubles.

Ion wrote a Facebook post saying the the fire -- which most likely killed more than 50 people -- has left him "standing now in poverty of self worth." He was grateful his wife and kids were safe, but his focus seemed to be mostly on losing stuff he "worked so hard for"... and now he's getting blasted.

Just a taste of the responses: "What a disgusting piece of s***!" ... "I hope you get charged with manslaughter" ... and "There is a special place in Hell for people like you!!!!!!!"

Ion organized the artists working in the building which was known as the Ghost Ship Collective.

We did some digging, and according to Alameda County court records ... Ion's currently on probation for receiving stolen property. He plead guilty to the misdemeanor in January, and got sentenced to 36 months probation. 

The sheriff's department has said criminal charges for the fire are possible, but no suspects have been named yet.

Taylor Swift Alleged Butt Grabber Interview Disappears ... She Denies Strong-arming

12/4/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

12001_David-Mueller_taylor_swift_tmz_twitterThe radio interview with the guy accused of grabbing Taylor Swift's ass was abruptly removed from the station's website -- and there are conflicting stories about who pulled the plug.

Former radio DJ David Mueller went on iHeart's "Mojo in the Morning" show Tuesday and gave his side of the story. It was the first time he had a chance to plead his innocence publicly. But sources connected to iHeart tell us the entire audio clip was deleted from Mojo's website at the demand of Taylor's people.

We're told soon after the interview was posted online, the 'Mojo' crew got a call from iHeart honchos to remove it ... in order to preserve the company's good relationship with Taylor. She regularly performs at iHeartRadio shows.

Our sources say no specific reason was given for why the honchos wanted it down, but it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Mueller came off as a sympathetic figure as he explained his side of the infamous run-in with Taylor.

1110-taylor-swift-ass-grab-tmzAn iHeart spokesperson denies Taylor was involved. The rep did not provide any explanation for the Mueller clip's removal. Sources close to Taylor tell the same story -- it wasn't me. Ditto for Mueller's legal team.

Whoever wanted it killed has a problem though -- the interview's been recorded, so it lives on.

Donald Trump Costume Partying with Superwoman (Shhh! It's Kellyanne Conway)

12/4/2016 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1204-kellyanne-conway-donald-trump-superwoman-TWITTER-01Kellyanne Conway lifted Donald Trump all the way to the White House, but there's one thing even Superwoman couldn't do -- get the Prez elect into a costume.

Trump's campaign manager slipped into a tight and leggy Super outfit herself for a "Heroes and Villains" bash thrown at Robert and Diana Mercer's family estate on Long Island Saturday night ... which Trump attended too. 

Tight as the Prez elect is with Conway and the Mercers -- their daughter Rebekah's on his transition team -- he wasn't down for playing dress up at the annual event for the super-rich. 

Other guests in costume included a Tonya Harding, a Cruella Deville and at least 3 Ruth Bader Ginsburgs ... according to Bloomberg.

Not a single Kryptonite-colored Hillary costume though. That would've killed.

'Frozen' Look-Alike Nude Pics Are Too Fat To Be Me!

12/4/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-anna-faith-elsa-scared-INSTAGRAM-01Anna Faith Carlson, the model who's a dead ringer for Elsa from "Frozen," is claiming a website posted fake nude pics of her ... and says the proof is in the waistline.

The site Celeb Jihad posted a bunch of "before-and-after" nude selfies it claims are Anna showing off a recent boob job. The pics show a topless woman with tan lines, and bandages under her breasts. It appears to be a post-op shot.

Anna's team claims that's not her in the pics, insisting the nude chick is "much heavier than Anna has ever been in her life." They added, Anna is in "great shape with a very small waist" ... unlike the alleged impostor.

They say there are also differences in the nose, teeth and face that prove Anna's NOT the nudie pic chick. Her camp is threatening to sue if the post isn't deleted.

So, no -- she's not willing to let it go.

'90210' Cast 90's Reunion Screwed Us ... Show Us the Money!

12/4/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202_90210_rewindcon_tmzMost of the OG '90210' cast got together for a huge fan convention, which was probably good times -- right up until some of them got stiffed on their paychecks.  

Rewind Con went down last month in Chicago, celebrating the 80s and 90s with celebs like Luke Perry, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling. Joey Fatone from N'Sync was there too along with a handful of "General Hospital" alums.

Sources tied to the event tell us organizers promised invitees their checks would be in the mail following the convention, but after 2 weeks ... no dinero. Instead they got an email from one of Rewind Con's founders saying she was filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy.

We're told some people, like Luke and Jason, did get paid ... but Jennie and Tori drew short straws. Fatone's rep also says the singer got jack. It's unclear how much most of the celebs were to be paid, except for Port Chuck, the band formed by 4 ex GH stars. Their rep says they're owed about $50k.

Rewind Con co-founder Jaymie Lashaway -- who sent the email -- says the event's financial woes started when an investor, who had agreed to pay all the bills, suddenly backed out. She says it has nothing to do with her personal bankruptcy.

Anybody else smell lawsuits cooking? 

Stone Cold Steve Austin 3:16 Goes 9MM at Tactical Gun Range

EXCLUSIVE

WWE legend Steve Austin can easily dismantle a bad guy with a well-placed Stone Cold Stunner -- but that didn't stop him from working out his trigger finger at the gun range ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Stone Cold recently stopped by Taran Tactical Innovations in Simi Valley, CA to throw some lead down on their tactical range with a Sig Sauer MPX 9mm. In layman's terms: one badass rifle.

Check him out as he opens a can of whoop-ass ... just don't throw him a beer.
