The Dirty can exclusively report Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have headed back to court in the $110 million dollar legal battle over “Straight Outta Compton” … As we reported last week their late former manager’s nephew is continuing on the case … despite the rappers pleading with the judge to not allow him to take his uncle’s place.

Last year, Heller filed a $110 million dollar lawsuit against Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, the Estate of Eazy-E, NBC Universal and others behind the box office hit “Straight Outta Compton” … accusing the defendants of ruining his good name by portraying him negatively in the movie.

Heller explained that the film made him out to be “the bad guy” and “a sleazy manager who took advantage” of N.W.A. and Eazy-E, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube. He pointed out to scenes in the film that showed him withholding a $75k check from Ice Cube, convinced Dr. Dre and Ice Cube to sign unfavorable contracts and was fired by Eazy-E … all lies he claimed in his complaint. He filed suit demanding $35 million in compensatory damages and $75 million in punitive damages.

Heller passed away last September of a heart attack, leaving the lawsuit in limbo until the judge or Heller’s lawyer decided the next step.

Following his passing, his lawyer released a statement in which he claimed the stress caused by “Straight Outta Compton” and the portrayal of him in the film caused his death … saying his client would be alive today if the film wasn’t made.

Earlier this month, Jerry’s nephew filed docs requesting the court allow him to step in for his late uncle and continue on with the legal battle against Dre & Cube. He explained he will be the appointed personal representative for his estate and wishes to proceed

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre headed last week demanding the judge NOT allow the nephew to take Jerry’s place in the suit.

They explain that, “the Court should not substitute Terry Heller as the personal representative of the Estate of Gerald E. Heller for the Plaintiff in this action unless and until Terry Heller’s alleged status as the personal representative of the Plaintiff’s Estate is confirmed by the Superior Court”. They don’t believe he should be allowed to proceed until he is legally recognized as the representative for the estate, which has not yet been signed off on.

The judge has yet to make a decision.

What Selena Gomez doesn’t know won’t hurt her … well maybe not.

Bella Hadid on stage at a tribute concert for ASAP YAMS – a record executive who passed away two years ago. The weird part is The Weeknd performed on the same stage that Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner seem to be standing on.

In the Instagram video shot by Ben Baller you can totally see Bella … which has us wondering if this is a stab at Selena Gomez. Of course it is.

For those of you who are not connected to the Internet … Selena Gomez is now sleeping with The Weeknd who was recently (two months ago) sleeping with Bella Hadid. And according to girl code this is illegal because Selena is BFF with Gigi Hadid who happens to be Bella’s sister. Which means if you do the math, technically everyone is sleeping with Justin Bieber.

The Dirty can exclusively report that enemies Lil Wayne and Birdman finally have some good news to celebrate together … the legal battle accusing them of ripping off a music producer has been dismissed.

A music producer named Woodrow Jones aka Woody and his company, Fireball Records, sued Lil Wayne, Birdman, Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records last year. The producer accused his former music partner of giving his tracks to Birdman and Cash Money without his authorization or paying him a dime.

Woodrow realized his tracks were sampled in Birdman’s “Always Strapped”, Lil Wayne’s “Don’t Like the Look Of It” and another track “Dark Shades” featuring both rappers. He filed suit demanding an injunction against Lil Wayne, Birdman or their record labels from continuing to profit illegally off his work and unspecified damages.

Birdman fired back calling the case nothing more than another attempt to ride on his coattails. He pointed out the producer failed to identify which portions of the songs he claims were his and even failed to register for a copyright on one track. He demanded the suit be tossed out of court.

Then on January 17th, Woodrow headed to court and filed a notice of voluntarily dismissal against all parties including Cash Money, Young Money, Birdman and Lil Wayne. The docs do not state whether a settlement was reached out of court. The case was closed the same day. So it makes you wonder what went down?

T.I. isn’t having a great 2017 … The Dirty broke the story of his divorce from Tiny … and now we can exclusively report T.I. is being shut down hard in the legal battle filed by 12 of his former employees at his ATL restaurant.

Last year, T.I. was sued by 12 former employees of his ATL restaurant Scales 925.

The ex-workers accuses the rapper and his business partner Charles Hughes of screwing them out of wages & never paying overtime. The former workers said their paychecks sometimes bounced, they were asked to work off the clock and weren’t paid for all hours.

They sued demanding back pay and all unpaid overtime money, in excess of $50k in damages!

T.I. fired back at his ex-employees saying he can’t be on the hook for the unpaid wages issues … saying he wasn’t responsible for day-to-day operations for the restaurant. He demanded the claims against him be tossed.

Then on January 18th, the judge came back with his decision and sided with the ex-employees … by denying the rapper’s motion to have the case dismissed.

The judge says despite T.I.’s argument he wasn’t hands on with the business … his name was on the lease, he shared the profits with his partner and he had joint rights to control all aspects of the business. He says there is evidence thus far to allow the case to continue on … shutting down T.I. … noting the rapper can be held liable for wrongful acts or omissions by his business partner.

Not a strong start to the new year for Clifford Joseph Harris Jr.

The Dirty can exclusively report DJ Khaled will be grilled under oath in the legal battle with a New York jeweler over $100k+ in unreturned pieces he was loaned …. due to the judge ordering him AGAIN to show up for a depo or he risks be sanctioned.

New York jeweler, Rafaello & Company, sued DJ Khaled for never returning two Rolex watches, a custom made diamond chain, a pair of diamond earrings and a 4 carat diamond ring.

R&C loaned him several pieces with the option to return or keep and purchase. However, he never paid or sent back the items. They sued for $100k+ in damages. Back in October, Rafello & Company demanded Khaled be sanctioned for refusing to sit down for a deposition in the case … where they could grill him under oath about the alleged stolen jewelry.

They explained his legal team said he would be available for a depo anytime in the summer … and the judge even ordered him to be deposed last October but then it was postponed … and now DJ Khaled’s lawyer claims he won’t be available due to him being on tour.

Rafello says they should not have to work around his tour schedule, which appears to be never ending. They pleaded for the judge to order Khaled to sit down for a depo last December and for sanctions to be imposed for him blowing off the courts order.

Then on January 11th, a hearing was held on the motion demanding Khaled be sanctioned over his refusal to be deposed. The judge ordered Khaled to appear in person for a deposition next month but he decided not to sanction him … yet. He says he will make a decision on the sanctions after he sees if Khaled shows up.

Sounds like DJ Khaled doesn’t want to win … no major keys for this one.

If you live or know anyone in California, you’ve heard stories of earthquakes. Universal Studios even displays this attraction on their tram ride and the Rock played in a movie called San Andres where he had a hot daughter that constantly had earthquakes in the chest area.

Well on a serious note there was a REAL earthquake in Italy last night which caused an avalanche that buried an entire resort hotel trapping at least 30 people that included children. Yes, this is real life, not a movie. Rescuers had to use skis and were dropped off by helicopter to find survivors.

The Hotel Rigopiano is lost. So far only two people have been saved – there were 23 guests and seven staff members. Reports are saying a series of four earthquakes hit the Monté-realé region in a span of four hours. The largest quake registering at 5.7. Pray for Italy.
