Pellicano:

MGM Billionaire's Ex-Wife

Talked of Hit

1/11/2007 12:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

BREAKING NEWS: Some amazing digging by the New York Times duo, David M. Halbfinger and Allison Hope Weiner, has turned up a trove of recordings and transcipts from disgraced private investigator to the stars, Anthony Pellicano, star of the seemingly never-ending Hollywood wiretapping scandal.

Anthony Pellicano and Kirk Kerorian
In a taped conversation from April 2002, the telephonic tattler Pellicano tells Terry Christensen, lawyer to billionaire ex-MGM owner Kirk Kerkorian, that Kerokorian's ex-wife, Lisa Bonder Kerkorian, has confided in her lawyers that she'd like to have Kerkorian killed, due to their fierce child-support and paternity battle.

Here: The wiretapped goods, in all their scheming splendor.

For all her allegedly murderous rage, Bonder didn't meet with much success. Per the NYT, "Mr. Pellicano heard Ms. Kerkorian talking to her lawyers, relatives and friends even as she and Mr. Kerkorian were wrangling over her demand for a $270,000 increase in monthly child-support payments. Ms. Kerkorian's effort ultimately failed; a judge increased the payments by just $316."

Kerkorian, 88, ranked 53rd among the world's richest people on Forbes' 2006 list, with a net worth of nearly $9 billion. Pellicano is being held at the Federal Detention Center in Los Angeles, where he and six associates await an August trial on over a hundred counts of wiretapping, racketeering, witness tampering, identity theft and destruction of evidence. Terry Christensen has also been charged.

This will be all over the news in the next few days, in the trades as well as the L.A. Times, but we're happy to bring it to you as-it-happens.

Is Kirk Kerkorian the father of the child of the ex-wife?

My two cents    

OMG! I read on the Smoking Gun the breakdown of Lisa's monthly demand upon her ex husband Kirk for over 323,000 a MONTH. It is the most outrageous list ever for Spousal/Child Support. Talk about a princess!!! While I agree that she obviously deserves a decent amount of cash per month considering the ex is a multi-billionaire, but geez Louise that is friggen crazy! I wonder what the bottom line will be for her for wanting to put a hit on this poor old man. He is like 90 years old and she is in her 30's?? What a BITCH!!!

#6 I don't believe he is the father, but he didn't know that in the begining and thought it was his child. When he found out it wasn't he still took very good care of her and loved her. The demands Ms. Bonder has put on him are just crazy and wrong. This child does not need all that money to live. Now, don't quote me on this, but I did read somewhere years ago that real father is the same guy who fathered Elizabeth Hurley's child.

JUST ANOTHER MONEY HUNGRY WHORE, WITHOUT ANY GENUINE CONCERN FOR THE CHILD.

THE BABE'S FATHER IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT MR KERKORIAN. THE BIO-DAD IS IN FACT STEPHEN BING, WHO APPARENTLY HAS AN AVERSION TO LATEX, I.E. THE DUDE DOES NOT USE CONDOMS. FOOL. NOW HE PAYS TO SUPPORT THIS CHILD AND HURLEY'S KID AS WELL. HURLEY'S PREGNANCY DID NOTHING TO SNAG HIM, PLAYBOY THAT HE IS!!

BING'S PATERNITY WAS PROVED BY DENTAL FLOSS TAKEN FROM HIS GARBAGE BINS ( YES, IT'S LEGAL TO TAKE SOMEONES TRASH, PROVIDED IT IS CURBSIDE ). WELL, MR K WAS LET OFF THE HOOK (SOMEWHAT), AND THAT BITCH WAS EXPOSED FOR WHAT SHE IS - A MONEY HUNGRY PIG WITHOUT ANY REGARD FOR HER CHILD'S WELFARE.

SLUT!!!

SPARE US...CHARACTER ASSASSINATION IT WAS NOT. SHE DID THIS TOO HERSELF, FOR LYING ABOUT THE PATERNITY MATTER. ..

PAYBACK IN THE MEDIA, I'M SURE SHE LOVED ALL THE ATTENTION SHE GARNERED AS A RESULT. KARMA HAPPENS, AND IT DOES NOT PAY VERY WELL.

LIE DOWN WITH DOGS WAKE UP WITH FLEAS, AND ALL THAT!
