Ellen Pearson -- the woman who was married to Robert Kardashian
when he died -- claims the Kardashian
kids don't have a leg to stand on in their lawsuit against her for selling portions of their father's diary to the tabloids ... TMZ has learned.
Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Jr. all banded together last month to sue Pearson
for profiting off the diary ... a diary that contained a slew of juicy personal information.
The Kardashian kids claimed in their suit that the diary was left to them in Robert's will, but in her response filed earlier this week ... Pearson claims that just isn't the case and the diary is rightfully hers.
Pearson also shoots down the idea that she hid the diary from the Kardashians, but she does fully admit to selling it to the tabloids and owns up to the fact that she got paid for it.
In the end, Pearson claims the Kardashians have no case and is asking a judge to toss it out completely.
A judge has yet to rule.
's hubby Ken escaped the long arm of the law this week -- when he was pulled over by a cop in West Hollywood ... for something that probably WASN'T EVEN HIS FAULT!!!
Here's the deal -- sources tell us an eagle-eyed cop spotted Ken's fancy Bentley cruising down Santa Monica Blvd. at nighttime WITHOUT his headlights on.
But here's the rub ... we're told Ken had just picked up Lisa from their restaurant SUR ... and we're guessing that's where things went wrong.
WHY? Because he probably left the car with the valet ... and sometimes valets TURN OFF YOUR HEADLIGHTS (even if they're set to automatic) ... and it drives us frickin' CRAZY!!!!
Anywho ... Ken didn't get in trouble for the headlight issue, the cop let him drive off without a ticket.
We can't confirm the valet thing either ... but c'mon, you KNOW it's happened to you.
The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating death threats made against Chris Brown
... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, multiple threats were called in to the office of Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos
. We're told the caller threatened Chris' life ... but it's unclear what, if any, specific threats were made.
Our sources say Geragos took the threats very seriously and immediately reported them to the LAPD, giving them all the information he had on the calls.
We're told Geragos filled out a report and the LAPD are currently investigating.
If you've never seen the Verne Troyer
sex tape, then you are about to watch the worst thing ever recorded ... Tanning Mom
's music video.
As TMZ first reported, Patricia Krentcil inexplicably decided to record a pop song
entitled "It's Tan Mom" ... figuring if Octomom did it, so could she.
Now TMZ has gotten our hands on the music video for the song ... and it's an absolute nightmare.
If you don't go blind in the first minute, be sure to watch around 2:00 mark ... when Krentcil just completely gives up on trying to sing along with the track.
It's so bad, it's amazing.
now insists Michael Jackson
molested him, although lots of people think he's lying through his teeth. So we gotta ask ...
"At least you're not Chad Johnson
" might be something people say soon ... because on top of being a wanted man, TMZ has learned the former NFL star's finances are sinking faster than his career.
Chad filed new court docs as part of an ongoing battle with one of his baby mamas, Andrea Pearson, asking a judge to lower his $5,420 per month child support payments because he claims can't afford it.
In the docs, Chad says he agreed to that number back in March 2012, when he was a successful NFL star. He says he now "finds himself without a contract and without a team. Simply [I am] unemployed."
He also says, at such a late stage in his career, it is CERTAIN he will never make the kind of cash he once did.
The news is a far cry from his money days ... in 2012, Chad claimed he raked in $66k per month
. But he got released from the Dolphins
in August after his head butting arrest
and his endorsement deals dropped like flies
As TMZ first reported, a warrant was issued
for Chad's arrest on May for an alleged probation violation, also stemming from the domestic violence case.
Hmmm ... where'd it all go wrong?
Pregnancy rumors be damned, Beyonce
wore a slew of form-fitting outfits during her tour stop in Milan last night.
Bey has thus far neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, only attacking the press with an Instagram post
she quickly deleted. Multiple outlets say they have confirmed Mrs. Carter is pregnant with baby #2, and many point to the fact she canceled a show last week ... citing good ol' "dehydration and exhaustion."
When we asked yesterday, 81% of you said you thought Beyonce was preggers. After looking at these pics, we ask again ...
and Ozzy Osbourne
took another step toward a possible reconciliation when the pair walked the red carpet at an event in Beverly Hills last night with their daughter Kelly
As TMZ first reported, Sharon and Ozzy met for lunch
earlier in the day. Our spies say that as the meal went along, the two got pretty cozy together.
The couple split last month and our sources say Sharon won't consider getting back together with Ozzy until he proves he is sober for good.
's former right-hand man -- the guy who worked closely with Danity Kane
back in the "Making the Band 3" days -- says their careers were unfairly cut short, and he LOVES the idea of a reunion.
TMZ broke the story ... the all-girl band Diddy created -- then ripped apart -- is getting back together without his blessing
Now Conrad Dimanche
tells TMZ, "I think it's a great idea and the fans would love it." He added that, in his eyes, the group only broke up due to "senseless differences."
Dimanche was an Executive Producer and A&R man for Diddy for 10 years ... and says he's ready to work with Danity Kane again if they reach out to him.
As for DK's bad blood with Diddy ... Dimanche says, "I couldn't speak for him on his thoughts of the girls reuniting, but I will say it would make the most sense if he was involved."
Dimanche must be a glutton for punishment ... 'cause things didn't exactly end on an up note his last go-around with DK.
OJ Simpson i
s already planning life after jail -- despite the fact that his conviction has yet to be overturned -- and priority numero uno: a massive college speaking tour to line his pockets.
Simpson is gunning for a retrial
in his 2007 armed robbery case, for which he's currently serving out a 33-year-sentence. If a new trial happens, and his conviction is overturned, Simpson's time behind bars could be drastically reduced.
With high hopes of getting out soon, Simpson reportedly told a source close to The NY Post
that he plans to go on a nationwide college tour to make some cold, hard cash speaking about the Nicole Brown murder case.
OJ told the source, “I'm excited. I mean, they teach the 'Trial of the Century' in school, so who better to talk about it than me?”
According to the report, Simpson could make up to $1,000 per speech.
Hi, my name is Paris and I'm a two-time victim of ... SWATTING. Welcome Paris.
TMZ has learned Paris Hilton re-joined the celeb swatting club when someone called 911 pretending to be her, and told cops she was trapped in her bedroom with a gun to her head.
Multiple police cars rushed to Paris' L.A. mansion to search for intruders after the call came in last weekend -- but all they found were Paris' pooches chillin' by themselves.
This is deja vu all over again for Paris ... TMZ broke the story when cops responded to her house
2 months ago for a very similar call.
Sources tell us, Paris wasn't home for the latest incident, and was completely unaware until she got back and saw the LAPD cruisers lined up outside her house.
As we previously reported ... Justin Timberlake
, Khloe Kardashian
, Selena Gomez
, Russell Brand
, Ryan Seacrest, Miley Cyrus
and Magic Johnson
have all been swatted too.
's brother is seeking control of the late rapper's estate -- what's left of it -- via an old will that earmarks nothing for D's 13-year-old daughter, parents or other siblings ... according to documents obtained by TMZ.Floyd Myers
, D's brother and former business manager, filed docs in L.A. County Superior Court last week ... claiming Heavy wrote a will in '99 and lost it years ago ... but insists D gave him a copy.
Interestingly, the will Floyd wants the court to honor specifies that all of Heavy's assets should go to Floyd (keep in mind, Heavy apparently signed off on that will BEFORE his daughter was born).
So what's left of Heavy's estate? The rapper only had $320,000 in listed assets (but there could be more $$$ in future royalties and other bank accounts that haven't been discovered yet).
But Floyd's lawyer tells TMZ ... it's all good with D's extended family ... the filing is a formality to clear title on a condo the brothers co-owned so Floyd can sell it. We reached out to several immediate family members ... no one's gotten back.
