Madonna My Tupac Letter Was Jacked! Files Order to Block Auction

7/18/2017 2:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

5:35 PM PT -- According to a report, a judge in NYC just ordered the auction site to remove the items.

4:07 PM PT -- A spokesperson for Gotta Have Rock and Roll website and Lutz tells TMZ, "Madonna and her legal army have taken what we believe to be a completely baseless and meritless action to temporarily halt the sale of Ms. Lutz’s legal property. We believe that her intent is nothing more than to besmirch the good reputations of the auction house and Ms. Lutz. Madonna's allegations will be vigorously challenged and refuted in a court of law in due course."Madonna isn't gonna sit back and watch her jailhouse letter from Tupac get sold in an auction ... because she says it was jacked from her home.

Madge filed an emergency court order Tuesday in NYC to block the website gottahaverockandroll.com from hawking the letter and a ton of other personal memorabilia -- including personally worn panties.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Madonna says she was blindsided by the auction, and says she never knew some of these items were no longer in her possession. Madonna believes a former friend and art consultant, Darlene Lutz, betrayed her by taking the loot. 

We broke the story ... Pac wrote an extremely revealing letter from prison explaining why he had to end his relationship with Madonna -- because she was white and continuing the relationship would hurt his image.

According to the docs -- first reported by the Daily News -- the Tupac letter, a pair of her "personally worn panties," letters from her pal, Rosie O'Donnell, and several other handwritten notes to family members were never sold or gifted to anyone.

Bottom line -- it's a material world, she's a material girl ... and she wants her stuff.

EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter's troubles started hours before his DUI refusal arrest -- including a run-in with cops when he couldn't pay his bill for repairing a flat tire.

Aaron pulled into the Walmart Supercenter in Commerce, Georgia on Saturday after blowing out a tire on his Chevy Suburban. According to a source he was riding on the rims when he arrived. We're told he left the SUV at the tire center and about an hour later returned to pay, but his credit cards were declined.

Aaron told employees he'd call his manager to figure out the issue, but they were worried he might have a spare key and flee without paying ... so someone called cops.

We're told officers briefly spoke to Aaron, but the issue was resolved when a fan offered to pay the $110 bill if Aaron gave her an autograph and took a pic. Aaron obliged and left without incident.

About 2 hours later, he was arrested for DUI refusal about 30 min away in Cornelia, Georgia.

Aaron's rep tells us his manager had canceled his credit cards after his wallet was recently stolen.

Kanye West I Didn't Lie About 'Pablo'! It's a Living, Breathing Work of Art

7/18/2017 10:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West didn't fail on his promise to deliver his album, "The Life of Pablo," exclusively to Tidal ... which means pissed fans have no business suing him ... according to Kanye, anyway.

'Ye responded to the class action lawsuit which claims he conned people into getting Tidal on the basis it would be the only place they could hear his album when it came out in February 2016.

Kanye says after he initially released 'Pablo' numerous changes have been made to the album, and the versions now available on competing streaming services are different. He insists the original 'Pablo' has only been on Tidal.

In the lawsuit, fans accuse Kanye of backing out of his promise, especially after he tweeted 'Pablo' would never be on Apple Music, and would only be available for sale or streaming ... on Tidal.

In his new docs, however, Kanye says another tweet proves his point ... that 'Pablo' has been a "living breathing changing creative expression." He wants the lawsuit dismissed.

Ex-Kermit Puppeteer Played a Bitter, Depressed Frog ... Says Cheryl Henson

Breaking News

Kermit the Frog always said it wasn't easy being green, but it's the blues that got his longtime puppeteer, Steve Whitmire, fired ... according to Jim Henson's daughter.

Cheryl Henson ripped Whitmire's on-the-job performance, saying he was making Kermit a "bitter, angry, depressed, victim. Worst of all, in the past few years he had not been funny or fun."

She says it was high time to make a change, and implored Whitmire ... "Stop with the pity party!"

Whitmire was canned last week, and bitched that Disney let him go over the phone.

The Muppets Studio issued a statement Monday, saying the official reason they pulled the trigger was "unacceptable business conduct" -- which is pretty much what Cheryl said ... with bigger words.

R. Kelly Alleged Captive Speaks Out I'm No Hostage!

7/17/2017 7:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman whose family claims R. Kelly is holding her in a "cult" has a message for the world -- she's totally happy and okay ... although she's keeping her whereabouts under wraps.

We spoke to Joycelyn Savage, the 21-year-old whose father, mother and sister held a news conference Monday to accuse Kelly of essentially making Joycelyn and other women his sex slaves -- but she claims she's exactly where she wants to be. She says she still gets texts from her parents, but explains why she's cut off all communication with them.

Still, there was a lot she wouldn't address -- such as where she is now, or exactly what her relationship is with Kelly. He's denied the accusations and hinted he might take legal action against the Savage family.

Joycelyn's father, Timothy, believes his daughter is experiencing Stockholm Syndrome -- so, it's doubtful he'll buy what she said to us, but judge for yourself.

9:15 AM PT -- Ed reactivated his account. Looks like he's starting fresh by deleting tweets all the way back to April 3, 2015 and only with about 8k followers.Ed Sheeran got beat like Ramsay Bolton in the Battle of the Bastards -- enough "Game of Thrones" fans lit him up for his singing cameo that he's bowed out of the Twittersphere.

Ed deleted his 19.6 million-strong account Monday night after haters bombarded him with criticism for the very brief scene -- which many thought was too real for the fantasy world of 'GoT.'

Ed did say he'd be quitting Twitter about a month ago, but the timing is still a little suspect. His other social media pages are intact.

Important note for the haters ... his performance couldn't have been that bad since Sunday's season 7 premiere broke HBO's viewership record ... up 27% from last year's premiere.

"You can't kneel AND throw interceptions!" Wayans says ... "You ain't gonna score? You ain't gonna have them yards? You better stand up and pledge allegiance, sir!"
