Ciara Drops Libel Case I'm Too Successful to Sue Future for Defamation

10/20/2016 6:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-ciara-future-tmz-01Ciara has a legal problem that actually serves her well ... she can't win her defamation lawsuit against baby daddy Future because she's raking in so much money professionally, she has no damages.

Ciara's lawyer, Larry Stein, just filed legal docs dismissing the remaining libel claim she filed after her ex said some choice things about her, including, "This bitch got control problems."

Problem is ... to win a defamation lawsuit, you have to prove you've suffered financially, and Ciara is actually making more money now than before Future talked smack on her.

So she's dropped the libel claim -- the judge already dismissed a separate defamation claim -- but the case isn't over.

Russell Wilson's wife is still suing Future for what's called "false light" ... alleging Future has made her look like someone she's not. Proving false light does not require a showing she's lost income. She could get money just for the heartache of it all.

So the case goes on.


Sofia Richie & Paris Hilton Me and Tobey?! 'Are You F****** Joking??'

10/20/2016 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sofia Richie bobbed and weaved her way around "dumb questions" Wednesday night -- specifically whether she's a homewrecker in the breakup of Tobey Maguire's marriage -- with an assist from new coach Paris Hilton.

We got Sofia and Paris at Catch where paps grilled the 18-year-old about rumors swirling in Hollywood that she and newly single Tobey are a thing. She got testy ... fast.

Eventually, coach Paris chirped up on the subject -- telling photogs to leave her protege alone. As Paris hints ... Sofia's young and single ... and Tobey's 41. 


Kanye West Apple vs. Tidal BS Crushed My Song with Drake & Jay Z

10/20/2016 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West is holding a major grudge against Tidal and Apple, and now he's blasting the "bulls***" between them for destroying his super-collaboration with Drake and Jay Z

Kanye launched into the rant during his Seattle concert Wednesday night ... right before he performed Drake's hit, "Pop Style." The track originally included all 3 superstars -- but a showdown between streaming services shut it down, and it's obvious 'Ye still pissed.

And get this ... it wasn't just finances that screwed the deal -- Kanye says Drake's nemesis, Meek Mill, was also involved.

For once, we can ALL get on board with this 'Ye rant -- which, for some reason, included a bit about Kim's Paris robbery.

Oh, and here's what people who paid for the "Views" album missed out on. Thanks a lot Apple, Tidal ... and Meek.

Brad Pitt First Face-to-Face With Maddox Since Plane Incident

10/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_brad_pitt_tmzBrad Pitt had his first visit in more than a month with his 15-year-old son, Maddox ... since their confrontation last month on a private jet ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Angelina tell us the 2 met Wednesday afternoon with a therapist present. There had been a plan in place for Brad and Maddox to reunite a while back, but we're told the therapist felt the timing wasn't right.

The sources say Brad has had visits with his 5 other kids before Wednesday, but the face-to-face with Maddox is a turning point.

As we reported, Brad and Angelina agreed to a temporary custody plan which the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services created, in which Angelina gets temporary physical custody and Brad gets visitation.

As we reported, DCFS is still investigating the airplane incident and the FBI questioned Angelina and the kids Tuesday in a fact-finding mission. Our law enforcement sources stress there is no FBI investigation ... just fact-finding.

Our Angelina sources say, even though she's headed to divorce court, she still wants their family to function with a fully involved father and mother.

Presidential Debate Vegas Sex Industry Takes a Pounding

10/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-escorts-during-debate-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-02Vegas escorts are moaning alright, but for the wrong reason ... they say the 3rd presidential debate has sucked the sexual drive out of Sin City.

Multiple escort agency owners tell us business has been alarmingly slow over the last 2 days.

The owners and escorts say ... the influx of people for the Trump/Clinton showdown is not the usual crowd coming to Vegas for a good time.

As for why business is down ... the owners have several theories. One ... that everyone's depressed about the way the election has gone, and the crowd isn't up for a fun time.

Another owner had this theory ... the election has been filled with "gotcha" moments, and people are afraid of getting busted.

There is a beneficiary in all this misery. Dennis Hof, the guy who runs the Bunny Ranch 45 minutes outside of Vegas, says his business is booming. The Ranch -- a legal brothel where Lamar Odom ODd and almost died a year ago -- is booked to capacity, and he's even running extra limos.

The former flames were spotted at a joint called Lorna's for Seafood Tuesday. We're told they showed up around 1:30 AM ... cut a rug for about an hour and took off.

Nick and Christina were out with a group of friends -- but we're told they're not back together. Check out "The Wendy Williams Show" clip ... Christina seems to leave that door open a crack.

'Celeb Apprentice' Richard Hatch Trump 'Slides Up' On Women ... And Melania Knows It

10/20/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Richard Hatch says he witnessed Donald Trump's lewd conduct with women repeatedly, and anyone claiming differently -- including his family -- is full of it.

Hatch, who famously won the first "Survivor" crown before working closely with Donald on 'Apprentice' ... says the boss made a habit of getting close to women as soon as they walked in the room. He adds ... Trump never took the hint either when they'd try to shake him.

Richard says he didn't witness the incident recently reported about Gary Busey allegedly groping a female staffer while Trump laughed. But he says he wouldn't be surprised if Donald and producers looked the other way, since they loved having his "crazy" on the show.

He also says Melania claiming others are "egging on" Trump's behavior ... is pure fantasy.

Blac Chyna Tyga & Kylie's Spies Stole My Son's Party Theme

10/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-blac-chyna-tyga-kylie-jenner-tmz-02Blac Chyna is pissed at Tyga for jacking her Ferrari birthday party plans for their son, and adding his own bells and whistles to outdo her ... and she smells a rat behind the whole mess.

A source close to Chyna tells TMZ ... she believes a production staffer on her reality show fed Tyga and Kylie Jenner all the details of her party for King -- which she spent 2 months planning. We're told Tyga and Kylie were invited to the Saturday event, but no-showed ... then threw their bigger copycat bash the next day.

Chyna says she's happy her son enjoyed the birthday double up, but as a mother ... it was a slap in the face. Plus, it's insult to injury if someone from her own show tipped off her enemy.

Co-parenting. It ain't for everyone.
