Wynn Hotel Sues DC Club ... Your X is Marking Our Spot!

6/26/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Wynn Hotel's pissed its X is being whored around Washington, DC -- totally disrespecting their 21-year relationship together ... according to the hotel's new lawsuit.

The Wynn -- which owns XS Nightclub at Encore -- is suing XS Nightclub DC for using a similar logo. According to docs, the Wynn says it's had the XS rights since at least 1996 to market its restaurants, bars and nightclubs ... in this case a club at Encore.

The Wynn says the DC club is misleading customers into falsely believing its club is connected to the Vegas resort -- and, despite a warning back in May, it's still using the logo.

By the way, for its grand opening, the DC joint used the exact logo from the Vegas XS.

X's ... can't live with 'em, can't trust 'em not to hook up cross-country.

Kendrick Lamar, Lil Kim & Havoc All Honor Prodigy at BET Awards

6/25/2017 8:48 PM PDT

Prodigy got the honoring he deserved at the BET Awards ... and it came courtesy of his partner in rhyme, Havoc, Lil Kim and a surprise mention from Kendrick Lamar.

We broke the story ... Havoc and Kim followed through on plans to give a special shout out to Mobb Deep's Prodigy Sunday while presenting the Best Male Hip Hop Artist Award to Kendrick. 

Even Kung Fu Kenny -- in what appeared to be an impromptu nod -- paid his respects to the fallen rap legend ... saying he inspired his first mixtape at age 16. 

As we reported ... Prodigy's cause of death has been delayed pending toxicology results. His camp suggested he died after a lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia, and our sources tell us he also choked on an egg in the hospital shortly before he died.

RIP 

Chance the Rapper at BET Awards Calls for Justice in Black Community ... Thanks Michelle Obama

6/25/2017 7:56 PM PDT

Chance the Rapper had everyone at the BET Awards on their feet and cheering after he gave one HELL of an acceptance speech demanding justice in the black community ... and Michelle Obama even gave him a shout out.

Chance took home the BET Humanitarian Award Sunday in L.A. for all his work helping out the Chicago public school system and its students -- with money, shows and engagement in his hometown.

During his acceptance speech, Chance made an impassioned plea to the federal government, juries and courts and a number of other institutions to deliver justice to black people ... those locked up for minor drug offenses; those killed by police; and schools getting screwed by higher-ups. 

Like we said ... the crowd loved it. And if that wasn't enough ... Michelle had some kind words for Chance before he stole the show himself.

EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels shoulda stood his ground against Meek Mill's good squad when they tried jumping him ... according to a fellow "Love & Hip Hop" costar. 

We got Tammy Rivera -- Waka Flaka's lady from 'L&HH: Atlanta' -- as she was heading to the Microsoft Theater in L.A. for the BET Awards ... and she opened up about Safaree getting jumping this weekend

She says the fight will probably work out in Safaree's favor -- as they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

As far as how he handled the hands ... welp, Tammy's got some thoughts on that too.

A$AP Rocky Involved in Huge Scuffle At BET Awards Party

6/25/2017 2:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:40 PM PT -- Sources at 1 OAK tell TMZ that A$AP Rocky was not targeted in Sunday morning's scuffle ... he simply got sucked in as a result of proximity. We're told a fight erupted at a table near the main stage, and as A$AP was exiting ... the commotion spilled over into his area. We're also told no arrests were made, and no injuries were reported.A$AP Rocky is the latest celeb to deal with a would-be assault that ended in chaos over BET Awards weekend. 

Rocky was attacked early Sunday morning while doing a gig at 1 OAK in L.A., where Kendrick Lamar also headlined and got treated to a birthday shout out. 

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ that A$AP was jumped on by one man after the birthday song, which resulted in a massive scuffle near the main stage ... one that A$AP himself got mixed up in with security trying to break things up.

Law enforcement sources tell us they responded to an incident at 1 OAK around 1:57 AM from a club-goer who said security had struck him. By the time cops showed, the guy was gone ... and security said it was only a verbal exchange. 

As we reported ... this is the 2nd altercation this weekend. Safaree had the misfortune of being jumped, allegedly at the hands of Meek Mill's crew

We've reached out to 1 OAK and Rocky's reps for further comment ... so far, no word back.

Justin Trudeau Joins Toronto's Pride Parade

6/25/2017 12:19 PM PDT

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did what Donald Trump has refused to do for all of June ... walk among his LGBT citizens to honor Pride Month. 

Trudeau joined in on Canada's largest Pride parade in Toronto Sunday, where he took to the streets to march with members of the LGBT community. He made many stops along the way ... shaking hands and talking to reporters. 

President Trump has failed to formally acknowledge June as Pride Month -- unlike President Obama, who did so almost every year over his 8-year term. 

Looks like the PM is keeping up with the tradition up north. 

Meek Mill Safaree Who? 'I Don't Even Fight'

6/25/2017 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's happy to play the "who" game when it comes to questions about Safaree Samuels ... and he probably ain't squaring up with him anytime soon either.

Paps got Meek Saturday night leaving the District in Bev Hills -- rolling SUPER deep with bodyguards -- where he ducked and dodged questions about Safaree claiming Meek ordered his crew to jump him on Friday.

It's like a Dr. Seuss book here at first, but then Meek gets into Safaree's request for a 1-on-1 fight straight up. As he puts it, he's a "Don" ... and Dons don't fight. Okay, bud.

Congressman Adam Schiff Blames Obama and Trump for Russian Hacking

6/25/2017 7:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Congressman Adam Schiff blames former President Obama for not standing up to the Russians while they were hacking Hillary Clinton's emails during the election, but he thinks Trump is a shameless hypocrite for taking swipes at the former Prez when Trump himself was gleefully using the info.

Schiff was in D.C. Sunday when our photog asked about where to cast blame over Russian interference in the election.  Schiff uses a great metaphor to express his disdain for Trump, but then throws shade on Obama.

The only principal who escapes Schiff's critique ... well, she lost.

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Kim is in the crosshairs of the LAPD after her crew allegedly robbed a woman over a BET party house ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Kim rented a house for a BET weekend party but apparently the crib was not to her liking. We're told Sunday at 2 AM Kim and her crew went to check out the house, didn't like it and demanded their money back from either the owner or property manager.

The money wasn't forthcoming, an argument erupted and cops were called. Police arrived and told them it was a civil matter and they could do nothing ... so they left.

We're told Kim and her crew also left, but at 4 AM, a group of people showed up at the house with ski masks and weapons and got what they were after ... Kim's deposit check and cash, totaling at least $20k.

Law enforcement sources say the robbers weren't done ... they also slashed all of the victim's tires and stole a hubcap.

The LAPD has launched a robbery investigation.  

We reached out to Kim's people ... so far, no word back.
