Stevie Wonder Calls BS on Bruno Mars Critics ... Ain't No Cultural Appropriation

3/17/2018 7:53 AM PDT

Stevie Wonder is squarely on Bruno Mars' side in the legal fight over "Uptown Funk," saying Bruno didn't culturally misappropriate anything ... Stevie says it's all about making music for the world.

We got the musical legend Friday night in Bev Hills leaving Mr. Chow, and he squarely takes issue with activist Seren Sensei who called him out in a web series, calling him a karaoke singer who rips off other artists.

Stevie calls BS on that, saying Bruno's a great talent and the idea that certain types of music should be walled off is ridiculous.

Bruno's being sued by Angie Stone and her rap group "The Sequence" for ripping off their song "Funk You Up."  Truth be told, Bruno has said he was inspired by the song and they sound super similar.

We got Farrah Friday in Bev Hills, and she had nothing but unkind things to say about the an ex-producer who said she was impossible.

The former "Teen Mom" is suing Viacom for at least $5 mil for sex-shaming, harassing and humiliating her for doing porn.

Farrah also says she wasn't exactly fired because she's shooting something for the upcoming reunion show.

Backstreet Boys We're Starting a BBQ Restaurant!!!

3/17/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The Backstreet Boys are ready to drop the mic ... in the restaurant biz!!!

BSB Entertainment Inc. -- a company with A.J. McLean, Howie D., Brian Littrell and Nick Carter  listed as directors -- filed docs, which were obtained by TMZ, on February 9 to trademark "Backstreet Barbecue" for use in a new restaurant. 

The news comes on the heels of Nick telling a food blog they're looking for a partner in Mexico to start making their own tequila. Hey, it worked for George Clooney. Now add a BBQ joint and the boys have quite the trifecta (music reigns, of course). 

We've reached out to a rep for the Backstreet Boys for comment, so far no word back. 

Stevie J I'm Being Extorted ... Over Child Support

3/17/2018 7:40 AM PDT

Stevie J says all the shade being thrown around about him being ridiculously behind in child support is extortion.

We got the "Love & Hip Hop" star Friday night in the ATL outside Ivory, and asked him about owing more than $1.3 million in child support.  

Stevie calls BS, saying he loves and supports his kids and even put them on 2 VH1 shows. He says he's being extorted over child support but doesn't elaborate.

Stevie's required to turn himself in by April 10th for falling in arrears ... this after pleading guilty to failure to pay support. 

Lil Uzi Vert Now on the Hook with Rick Ross For Canceled Gig Lawsuit

3/17/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Lil Uzi Vert was supposed to co-star with Rick Ross on a summer show together, but instead they took the money and left fans hanging ... according to a lawsuit.

A Pennsylvania entertainment company just added Uzi as a defendant in the suit it filed against Rick. According to docs, both rappers were supposed to perform on June 10, 2017 at the minor league ballpark in PA. The company says it forked over about $200k to lock it down.

As we reported ... Rick bailed on the show, and the company says he showed really poor form by not canceling until 2 nights prior to the gig. According to the suit, Lil Uzi did the same. 

Now Ross and Uzi are both being sued for the roughly $200k in deposit money, plus reimbursement for what was lost by the last-minute cancellation.

We reached out to both rappers ... no word back so far.

Tommy Lee No More Fat Lip After Fight with Son

3/16/2018 6:26 PM PDT

Tommy Lee still might not be over getting punched by his son ... but at least it looks like his face is back to normal.

The retired rock star was spotted out in Woodland Hills Friday -- with his fiancee Brittany Furlan -- for the first time since he was allegedly attacked by his son, Brandon, and left unconscious and bleeding on his bedroom floor. Tommy had a smoke in his car while Brittany hopped out with some paperwork.

We broke the story ... Tommy's looking to move forward with his criminal complaint against Brandon for battery -- at least for now.

As we reported ... Brandon insists he was acting in self-defense, claiming his dad was drunk and lunged at him during a heated argument over comments Tommy made about his mom, Pamela Anderson.

Tommy denies his drinking had anything to do with it.

Donald Trump's Lawyer Fires Back at Stormy Daniels ... You Owe Us $20 Million!!!

3/16/2018 5:46 PM PDT
Breaking News

The legal battle between President Trump and Stormy Daniels is not going away anytime soon, because his lawyer's now accusing her of violating their deal ... which could cost her big bucks.

According to new legal docs ... Stormy agreed in the "hush" contract with Trump -- created by his attorney, Michael Cohen -- to fork over $1 million in damages if she breached it, per incident.

Cohen claims Stormy has indeed breached the agreement -- at least 20 times -- so he has the right to go after her for $20 million.

As we reported ... Stormy sued to try to get the "hush" pact tossed, claiming the Prez used an alias and never signed it in the first place. She also started a crowdfunding page to raise funds for her legal costs against Trump and his lawyers.

So far she's raised more than $171,000 from various donors ... and it looks like she might need every penny.

Blac Chyna Lawyer Wants Judge to Make Her Talk About 2015 Car Crash

3/16/2018 5:36 PM PDT

Blac Chyna's been dodging and ducking her deposition about a 2015 car crash, and the plaintiffs' lawyer has had enough and wants to make her talk ... according to new legal docs.

Jon Teller, the attorney for the plaintiffs in the 2015 crash with Chyna's white BMW, claims they've been trying to interview her for 9 months now ... but she has canceled or failed to appear for her scheduled deposition at least FOUR times now.

Teller says they've been trying to work with Chyna reasonably but have been "stymied" at every stage ... so now he's asking a judge to step in and order Chyna to get grilled. According to the docs ... he also wants the judge to slap her with sanctions in the amount of $4,560 for her actions. 

As we reported ... Chyna was scheduled to talk about her involvement -- or possible lack thereof -- in the 2015 hit-and-run case in October, but we now know it never happened.

As far as the crash goes -- Chyna's friend, Paige Addison, told cops she was behind the wheel and BC was not in the car. Paige was charged with felony hit-and-run ... but Teller believes Chyna was there too.

The civil trial against Chyna and Addison is set for June, so clearly ... Teller wants to question BC ASAP.

We reached out to Chyna ... she had no comment.

Rapper Logic Splits With Wife ... Divorce Looms

3/16/2018 2:10 PM PDT

Logic and his wife, social media star and singer Jessica Andrea, have split after two years of marriage ... TMZ has learned. 

The couple married in October of 2015 when the rapper was just 25 years old. It's unclear exactly when the two called it quits, but they hit the red carpet together in January at the Grammys. Logic was nominated for two awards -- including Song of the Year for "1-800-273-8255."

Hints of trouble between the couple first surfaced on Instagram when fans noticed Jessica unfollowed Logic ... he still follows her. 

We're told neither has officially filed divorce docs, but reconciliation doesn't seem likely. Our sources say the home they purchased together last year is about to hit the market. 

They don't have any children.

Wu-Tang Clan Sued '60s Group Says 'People Say' is a Rip-Off

3/16/2018 2:38 PM PDT

The Wu-Tang Clan ripped off an old soul song and used it in its 2017 hit "People Say" ... so say 3 musicians in a new lawsuit.

The trio known as The Diplomats in the '50s and '60s claims Mathematics, a producer for the Wu-Tang Clan, jacked the melody, lyrics and rhythm of their 1969 track, "I've Got the Kind of Love." According to the docs ... "People Say" is a prominent lyric from their song.

The Diplomats claims many fans and ordinary listeners have noticed the similarities between the tunes and have even pointed them out online.

According to the docs ... The Diplomats say they never gave permission to use their music, so they want the rap group to stop performing and selling "People Say" ... and fork over damages.

Listen for yourself -- you think they got a legit gripe?
