We've all been there before. You order a Grande Latte and when your order comes you notice it's only 3/4 full so you add some milk and sugar to make up for the emptiness.

Honestly, it annoys us all from time to time, but two Starbucks regulars in California have decided to sue the company for ripping them (and everyone) off.

Siera Strumlauf and Benjamin Robles are suing the coffee company for purposefully underfilling their cups.

In a class action suit filed this week, the two claim that Starbucks is leaving customers short by 25 percent, which they say is an act of fraud in order to cut company costs.

In the lawsuit, they claim that employees have a secret line inside the cup so they know when to stop pouring. And that is all the evidence they need to sue the caffeine chain.

Starbucks "has saved countless millions of dollars in the cost of goods sold and was unjustly enriched by taking payment for more product than it delivers," it claims.

However, Starbucks say that the whole thing is nonsense and each beverage is individually poured, making every cup different.



First Kanye is called out for using an illegal torrent site, and now Kim Kardashian is being sued for a car crash.

The incident took place in March 2014, where Rafael Linare's car collided with Kim's Mercedes.

According to Gossip Cop, Rafael is claiming loss of income, car repairs and medical expenses in his court documents.

The docs originally claimed that he "sustained personal injuries which caused and will continue to cause pain, discomfort, and physical disability'' to him. 

Rafael is also claiming he was ''gainfully employed'' before the accident and has since been ''deprived of earnings''. 

A source close to the KUWTK star said that Kim said there was "minimal" damage and she thought the driver was OK afterwards. 


We know January is a crappy month for everyone, but former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter is making this month hell for himself.

The singer was arrested earlier this month at an infamous Florida bar called the Hog's Breath Saloon. 

According to TMZ, Nick "was originally escorted out of the Hog's Breath Saloon for unruly and disrespectful behaviour."

Mr Carter then became aggressive, "striking and choking" the bouncer after he was thrown out.

And now the bouncer, Skylar Carden, has filed a lawsuit against Nick, where he is stating the singer physically assaulted him. 

This comes less than a week after the 35-year-old publicly apologised on Twitter.

Last Saturday, he posted a tweet saying: "I am human and at times it can be a struggle to balance a healthy lifestyle. I'm not perfect and for that I am sorry."

He then went on to share another tweet: "When we fall we have to get up and keep on walking. I hope you stay by my side and continue to walk with me."



Kate Hudson has slammed rumours that she suffers from an eating disorder.

The Glee actress had previously sued the National Enquirer for claims implying she had a eating disorder back in 2006 saying she was: "looking like skin and bone." The actress received both and apology and compensation from the paper. But she isn't done insisting the dangers of such rumours yet. 

According to the actress, it isn't the lie itself that bothers her most, it’s the impression it gives to young girls who believe it. 

The mum-of-two spoke to Red magazine and explained: “If there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder. I won’t have girls – even if it is just one or two who care – thinking that. Because it is a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite.”

The actress continued on to say that, most of all, she wants girls to be happy within themselves: “I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are… The thing is, I’m lucky because I was loved. But I have seen so many young women who can’t feel good about themselves because they just don’t have… that love.”

Kate is currently engaged to Muse frontman, Matt Bellamy, and has said that there are no wedding plans, yet: “I’m not in a rush. We are basically married. It’s really about when we are going to take the time to plan a wedding.”

Rapper 50 Cent has lost a lawsuit against a headphones company who have sued him for $16.1 million.

The Candy Shop rapper – who’s real name is Curtis Jackson – has been ordered by a judge to pay the sum to Sleek headphones after a planned deal to market his own range with the company fell through.

The star reportedly invested more than $1 million to start his line, before deciding to create another set of headphones with a different company.

Court documents reportedly show Sleek were “stunned” when they found the ‘Sync by 50’ headphones were “basically the same design, mechanically” as the pair they had developed.

Sleek also claimed the rapper and his assistants stole confidential information from a website they developed to promote the headphones before they were produced.

Court documents show Sleek sued the rapper for breaching his fiduciary duty, participating in a civil conspiracy, misappropriating trade secrets, breaching his confidentiality agreement and being unjustly enriched.

The rapper instead claimed Sleek “fraudulently induced” him into entering into an investment and breaching their fiduciary duties to him.



Rapper Akon is being sued for not paying his lighting contractors. He’s so hardore….

According to reports, Southern Electric Company are claiming that they never got paid for the work they did on his Atlanta house on November 14th 2013. The company say they are still owed more than $95,000.00.

SEC say the Smack That hitmaker never paid for “labour and materials” used for renovations. Ironically, the R&B star has launched a campaign, Akon Lighting Africa, to provide electricity to one million households in Africa by the end of the year – he might want to pay his own bill first.

However, poor Akon’s troubles don’t just end with the electricity company. The rapper is also being chased for failing to show up at a birthday party organised by Australian entrepreneur Patrick Grove, even though he had been paid $150,000.00.



Nicki Minaj is being sued by Atlanta wig designer Terrence Davidson who claims that she stole his wigs designs and thus cheated him out of millions of dollars.

According to reports, Terrence, who made Nicki’s pink upper bun wig, her fox fur wig and her superbass wig, prides himself on helping the Starships hitmaker reach the top after he created a host of “fresh, hip and unique wigs for the singer.”

Apparently, Terrance and Nicki, whose real name is Onika Maraj, had made a deal to form a wig making business that would sell the wigs that the singer made famous.

However, the designer says that the American rapper actually started it without him and turned it into a multi-million dollar business selling his designs.

Davidson’s attorney, Christopher Chestnut, says: “Her lawyers may complicate it, but we don’t need to get into intellectual-property law. This is basic American morality. Nicki Minaj lied to this man and cheated him.”

He is suing the singer for $30,000,000 (that’s a lot of zeros)
