Lindsay Lohan shook a bunch of fans' hands after her play in London, and thinks that should count toward her 240 hours of community service -- but prosecutors say NOT SO FAST, LiLo.
Lindsay's attorney Shawn Holley showed up in court Wednesday morning to submit proof of Lohan's community service progress ... which showed she managed to pull off 80 hours in just 9 days.
The City Attorney said some of the service looked hinky ... because it included time spent doing meet and greets after her play. Holley pointed out the previous judge in the case had approved the London facility that keeps track of Lindsay's community service.
The City Attorney isn't satisfied with that ... and demanded 2 weeks to investigate exactly what Lindsay did or didn't do to complete the 240 hours.
As for the mysterious chikungunya Lindsay supposedly picked up in Bora Bora ... Holley presented a doctor's note that she had an illness, but we don't know if it's the tropical virus Lindsay claims to have.
As he left court ... the City Attorney told TMZ ... jail time is still on the table if Lindsay's service isn't up to snuff.
Mariah and Nick
Their Kids Liked Me Too Much
60 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon may be getting divorced, but they're still attached because they're being sued by a former nanny who claims she was fired because she showed too much affection to their twins.
Simonette DaCosta claims in a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- she was the full-time nanny when the kids were just infants. She fed, bathed and comforted them, but it didn't sit well with Mariah.
DaCosta claims the singer berated her for showing too much affection. Translation, it's pretty clear she's alleging Mariah was jealous because the kids liked their nanny way too much.
DaCosta also claims she was worked too hard ... putting in lots of OT -- sometimes 100 hours a week.
She wants back pay and other damages.

Orange is the New Black for Stalker
'Cause She's Goin' to Jail
23 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Taryn Manning will be stalker-free for the foreseeable future because the woman who's been harassing her for months will be spending some time in the pokey.
Jeanine Heller -- who has now famously been in a bizarre battle royale with her former close friend for months -- was sentenced to 45 days in jail for harassing her by sending a slew of texts to Manning and then uploading a manifesto about the actress and posting it on Reddit.
After she gets out Heller will go to an inpatient psych center where she'll be evaluated and treated for around a week.
She's also been banned from using computers until her next court date at the end of March.
Dodges Ticket for Banging ...
An Illegal U-Turn
1/28/2015 8:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian's made her share of wrong turns (we're looking at you Kris Humphries), but the latest got her in trouble with cops ... temporarily, anyway.
Kim got pulled over for making an illegal U-turn in Calabasas on Tuesday ... as she was leaving Kourtney's house.
But our Kardashian sources say Kim pulled off a chick special -- meaning she managed to talk her way out of the ticket. We don't know what Kim was wearing when the cop walked up to her SUV -- besides a smile -- but it worked ... for her.
Warning: Results will vary if you try this at home.
Hooks a Shark ...
Date or Deal with Kevin O'Leary?
37 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Courtney Love and "Shark Tank" maven Kevin O'Leary enjoyed dinner together Tuesday night in Beverly Hills, but the question is ... who was pitching who?
Love and Mr. Wonderful were inside the restaurant for nearly four hours and when they made their exit, the paps were quick to ask if they were dating. O'Leary immediately said no -- he is a married man -- so that just leaves the topic of money.
Does Courtney have a killer business plan? Does Kevin have a plan for Courtney's career?
We'd invest a million dollars for 100% of the answer.
Marshawn Lynch to Media:
'I'm Here So I Won't Get Fined'
1/27/2015 11:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Marshawn Lynch is being hammered with questions at Super Bowl media day.
His answer to all of them?
"I'm just here so I won't get fined."
Marshawn sat in front of the microphones sporting his sunglasses and a backpack -- and repeated over and over again, "Hey, I'm just here so I don't get fined."
He's said it at least 20 times already.
As you probably know, the NFL just fined Lynch $20k for grabbing his crotch during a TD celebration in the NFC championship game.
Ludacris' Baby Mama
He Made Me Play
Let's Make an Abortion Deal
1/28/2015 6:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ludacris' baby mama testified in court that it's ridiculously ludicrous he's fighting for full custody of their daughter, because he desperately wanted her to have an abortion to the point he even bribed her.
Tamika Fuller said when Luda found out she was pregnant he cried, but they weren't tears of joy. He said it would ruin his life and he then urged her to terminate the pregnancy.
According to Tamika, Luda initially offered her $10K and a house if she lost the baby.
As TMZ first reported, Fuller believes Luda's quicky marriage to Eudoxie was just a transparent ploy to show the judge he has a more stable home than her.
Down to the Wire ...
Community Service Completed!
1/28/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan will get a letter of completion from her London community service center ... but it will still be warm off the photocopy machine when her lawyer hands it to the judge.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Community Service Volunteers will certify Lindsay has completed her 240 hours to satisfy her probation requirement in her reckless driving case.
As we reported ... Lindsay waited until the last minute to get it done, and she put in her time at a breakneck pace beginning late last week.
There's one thing that's unclear ... whether she completed her hours on Tuesday or whether she has a few left that she'll do Wednesday before the court hearing. Since London is 8 hours ahead of L.A. she has the full day to finish if she hasn't already.
We're told CSV is prepared to send a letter of completion before her court hearing Wednesday morning.
Lindsay was supposed to complete her hours November 6, but she had only performed 102 hours of the 240.
Lindsay will not be in court. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will hand the sacred doc to the judge.
'Real Housewives' NeNe Leakes
Warns Kenya and Claudia
Call Me Bipolar and I'll Sue
1/28/2015 4:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes says it doesn't matter they're all on a reality show -- if Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan don't zip their lips she'll sue.
Both Moore and Jordan got warned by Leake's lawyers Tuesday to stop damaging her brand with smack talk. NeNe's pissed at Jordan for calling her bipolar and, even worse, sporting bad veneers. Her beef with Moore is unclear.
Two things strike us. It's a little "pot calling the kettle black" because NeNe's been known to go after other cast members ... por ejemplo saying Claudia was such a tramp "her clit has left her body."
And you gotta wonder what producers think about their stars setting limits on the drama.
Loaded Guns and Airports Don't Mix

Former "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Benzino was arrested Tuesday night at an airport for trying to send a loaded gun through a security checkpoint.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Benzino put his carry-on bag on the conveyor belt at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. A suspicious TSA employee dug inside and found a loaded 9 millimeter firearm with 7 rounds in the magazine.
Benzino didn't make his flight to L.A., but he did get his very own escort to the local jail. He was released on $3K bail.
The reality star was fired from the show after allegedly making death threats against another cast member.

Drunken 'Grease' Sing-Along
1/28/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jimmy Fallon relived his famous send-off from "SNL" -- singing a "Grease" classic -- but this time he had a barroom full of hammered backup singers ... which just made it more awesome.
Fallon was at NYC's Marie's Crisis Cafe last weekend when most of the bar started singing "Summer Nights" ... with Jimmy leading the chorus. But check out the video -- it wasn't easy keeping the buzzed crowd on the beat ... or the right verse.
Jimmy still managed to bring down the house, just like in his final "SNL" in 2004 -- where we're guessing there was slightly less drinking than in the bar.
