The Dirty can exclusively reveal Fat Joe is being accused of screwing his former business partner out of $480k+ over a high end sneaker store they launched and now the man has slapped the rapper with a federal lawsuit.

Scott Spina sued Fat Joe aka Joseph Cartagena and All the Way Up LLC. He claims the rapper and his team approached him last year to start a new business. At the time he operated a successful venture “Scotty Kicks”, which sold sneakers to celebrities and brought him minor fame.

The two partnered to open a high end sneaker and clothing store and the man says he worked tirelessly over the next three months by paying the lease deposit, finishing a Nike contract, managing the building of the store and invested all up front capital to the tune of $480k.

The store was opened in November and on the first day it generated $175k in sales. Spina says 20 days after the launch he was unlawfully ejected from the store and banned from coming back. Spina accuses Fat Joe of planning to cut him out of the business … even opening a new bank account for the company and refusing to pay him a dime. The store had generated close to $500k in sales and $285k in profit in the first couple weeks alone.

He is suing for the $480k he invested + accounting records to determine what he is owed from the profits … along with an injunction ordering Fat Joe not to go near the store until the outcome of the lawsuit.

The Dirty can exclusively reveal Lindsay Lohan’s dad Michael Lohan is demanding a Florida car wash pay up for the injuries he suffered after an incident last year … where he allegedly was left with a disability and disfigurement.

Michael sued Rub-A-Dub Car wash in Florida court last month over an August 16th 2016 incident.

He explains he visited the car wash on the date and handed over his car to an employee. He then started walking towards the office to pay. However, he claims as he was walking he slipped on a hand hole irrigation junction box cover located in the path that caused him to fall violently onto brick pavers, landing on his head and right arm.

Lilo’s dad says the company was negligent in keeping the conditions safe for customers. As a result, he suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, significant and permeant scarring, loss of the enjoyment of his life, medical costs and loss of the ability to make money.

Michael filed suit for unspecified damages. The car wash has yet to respond to the allegations.

EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Luke – Furious over Email Leak in Kesha Legal Battle, Says Singer was NOT to Release Confidential Docs to Public

The Dirty can exclusively reveal Dr. Luke is furious over the emails released by Kesha in their nasty legal battle – which he trashed the pop star’s weight – and he appears to believe she’s in contempt of court by filing the docs publicly.

Recently, Kesha filed docs in the case in which she explained she has provided the court with countless evidence of Luke’s years long abuse. The singer cited emails reflecting him criticizing her weight and appearance despite the fact that she had been starving herself on a juice cleanse. The pop star attached exhibits to her motion revealing emails Luke sent regarding her weight. In the emails he criticized her for eating a turkey sandwich when she was on a cleanse … and claimed songwriters and producers were reluctant to work with her due to her wright.

Luke’s lawyer released a statement following the release of the emails stating, “Kesha and her attorneys continue to mislead by refusing to disclose the larger record of evidence showing the bad faith of Kesha Sebert and her representatives which is greatly damaging to them. It also shows the tremendous support that Dr. Luke provided Kesha regarding artistic and personal issues, including Kesha’s own concerns over her weight.”

She continued, “Rather than agree to a thorough disclosure, Kesha and her representatives improperly publicized, without Court permission, three out-of-context emails which do not present the full picture regarding the events they concern.”

The Dirty can exclusively reveal T.I. is blasting the jeweler suing him for $700k in damages over allegedly unpaid invoices with the rapper demanding the suit be thrown out … due to him never signing his name to any agreement to pay for the pieces.

Last year, Georgia based jeweler, Aydin & Co., sued the rapper accusing him of screwing them out of $400k. The company stated they delivered a 18.5 karat white gold bracelet along with a gold rosary and ring to T.I. back in 2014. He paid them $20,000 which left an unpaid balance of $44k for the pieces.

Aydin said T.I. was a customer for over a decade and he currently owes them over $400k for pieces he hadn’t paid for despite keeping possession. They sued for in excess of $700k in damages. The rapper blasted the jeweler and demanded the suit be thrown out.

Then recently, the rapper headed to court demanding the judge immediately throw out the entire lawsuit and not award a dime to Aydin. He explains during the discovery of the case … the jeweler presented the alleged invoices for the unpaid pieces …. but NONE of them are signed by him.

T.I. says he was never provided with the invoices prior to the lawsuit being filed and accuses the company of not handing over any communications including possible texts in which he stated he agreed to make payments for the jewelry.
