Lindsay Lohan is back in New York City ... acting like she doesn't have a care in the world.
We got Lindsay as she came to the front door of her apartment building to let daddy Lohan inside.
As for Lindsay's state of mind re: the coke-fueled Miami party last Friday that ended with a beatdown of Paris Hilton's little brother ... Michael tells us, "Lindsay thinks it's a joke that people are blaming her."
Michael says Lindsay is sticking to her story ... there were only 5 people in the house and no drugs when she went to sleep at 1:15 AM, and when she woke up at 9:30 AM the place with filled with people and coke.
Michael says the Hiltons' threat of a lawsuit against his daughter is "ridiculous." He says Barron Hilton was aggressive and asking for it
Jeff Beacher vs. Shorty Rossi
Little Man Lawsuit
12/10/2013 1:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
That was fast ... Jeff Beacher's lawsuit against "Pit Boss" Shorty Rossi is SETTLED ... thanks to TMZ.
As we reported, Beacher just sued Rossi -- who used to work at Beacher's Madhouse -- claiming Rossi essentially stole valuable Beacher-themed website domain names after the two parted ways ... domain names like jeffbeacher.com and beachersmadhouse.net.
Rossi called in to "TMZ Live" today and said even if he won the lawsuit, he had no interest in squeezing Beacher for money in return for the domain names.
So we asked Rossi ... if Beacher apologized to him, would he drop the suit and fork over the domain names? Rossi said he would.
So then we called Beacher, and he played ball, saying, "Since we are both little people impresarios, it does us both no good to fight over anything, and only hurts the community of little people that we live in. Shorty, I apologize for suing you. Let's just work this out and move forward as friends again."
Shorty tells us he accepts Beacher's apology and will transfer the domains ASAP. He added, "After reading the apology, I had to pick myself off the floor. Apparently hippos do fly."
Now give us something hard ... maybe North Korea?
Chris Brown/Frank Ocean Brawl
Frank's Ass Was About to Be Beaten
12/10/2013 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Frank Ocean's cousin has a simple confession -- he did indeed go on the attack against Chris Brown and his entourage at a recording studio back in January ... but he did it to protect his flesh and blood.
The cousin -- Sha'keir Duarte -- is embroiled in a lawsuit with Brown, with each suing the other over the fight.
In new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Durate confesses he used force, but insists it was reasonable and necessary in defense of himself and Frank. Duarte says a guy named Hood -- allegedly part of Brown's posse -- was on the attack and had to be stopped.
Duarte is suing Brown for more than $3 mil.
Hangs w/ Ultimate Lohan Enemy
... The Firecrotch Guy!!
12/10/2013 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paris Hilton has reawakened one of her strongest anti-Lohan alliances -- her friendship with Brandon Davis -- AKA the guy behind the legendary "Lindsay Lohan Is a Firecrotch" attack!!!
Paris and Brandon were spotted together at the Jay Z concert in L.A. last night ... and we're guessing the timing of the public reconnection is no coincidence, since Paris is back at war with Lindsay.
Of course, Davis (grandson of oil baron Marvin Davis) annihilated Lohan back in 2006 ... going on one of the most epic street rants of all time ... ripping her for her body odor, the color of her genitals ... and her financial situation.
Paris was by Brandon's side during the rant, cackling the entire time.
Wonder what he would say about Lindsay this time around?
Goes Radio Silent
With Police Investigating Attack
12/10/2013 4:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Barron Hilton has logged on to zipit.com ... refusing to get back to police officers investigating the beatdown he caught at the hands of Lindsay Lohan's pal -- and it's preventing them from making an arrest ... TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported ... Miami Beach PD are looking to arrest the puncher -- LiLo's friend Ray LeMoine -- however ... law enforcement sources now tell us they haven't heard back from Paris Hilton's little bro.
We're told police need to speak with him to button up the investigation -- but Barron has fallen off the radar since initially speaking to cops on Friday morning, right after the attack.
As we told you ... multiple sources confirm there was a ton of drugs, including cocaine, inside the party.
We got Barron's folks, Rick and Kathy Hilton, out last night ... and Rick said he believes LeMoine nailed his son with brass knuckles.
As for LeMoine, he went on an online rant, claiming Barron started the fight by pushing him ... then claiming BH would not have been cut except for his "stupid glasses." He also calls Barron "Conrad Hilton's spoiled sperm experiment," and says when the confrontation began, Barron proclaimed, "Do you know who my sisters are?"
Stay tuned ...
Lindsay Lohan Party
THE DRUG PHOTOS
12/9/2013 10:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Here they are ... pics of the drug aftermath at Lindsay Lohan's mansion party in Miami ... showing two burned out joints and something that appears to be the remnants of a baggie of cocaine.
TMZ already reported there was coke and booze EVERYWHERE at the party before things got violent ... and now, we've got pics of the mansion taken after everyone left the scene.
It's unclear who the drugs belonged to ... but Lindsay's camp insists the actress kept her nose clean the entire night ... and didn't booze either.
Still, Lindsay knows ... insane mansion parties in Miami aren't exactly bastions of sobriety ... and Lohan (who's still on probation) knows she shouldn't have put herself in that situation in the first place.
In fact, we're told after the rager ... and subsequent fight ... we're told Lindsay scrambled to find a private jet to get her ass out of town ... calling several private jet owners hoping to call in a favor.
Eventually, she found a ride ... and in a pic obtained by TMZ, you can see Lindsay smiling on the plane ... as if she doesn't have a care in the world.
'I Will NEVER Watch SNL Again'
12/9/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Tim Meadows WENT OFF on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend -- saying he'll NEVER WATCH THE SHOW AGAIN after they excluded him from a throwback sketch.
Meadows -- who appeared on the show from 1991 to 2001 -- swore off the show after watching the "Brasky Bar Guys" bit ... a reoccurring sketch he often appeared in during his time with the show.
Meadows tweeted: "They did Brasky without me" ... adding, "Not even a 'hey would you want to come to do one line and bring your kids to see the 5 directions...?' Nothing... Wow..."
"I will never watch SNL again."
Meadows also explained why he thinks he's persona non grata -- and it traces back to his movie, "The Ladies Man."
"Sorry the ladies man bombed," Meadows wrote ... "If it would have done better they wouldn't treat me like a red-headed step child."
After the rant, Tim cooled down and seemed to back off his comments ... saying, "I'm not mad at the show. I know what it takes to produce those sketches in a short amount of time. I talked to a friend on the show who said it WAS a last minute sketch."
"I acted like a baby. I'm happy for all of my friends success and will always be grateful and proud to have been a part of SNL. That being said don't forget to see 'Anchorman 2' coming soon to a theater near you."
Fun Fact: "The Ladies Man" bombed so bad it took SNL 10 years to make another movie.

... Says Guy Who Punched Paris Hilton's Bro
12/8/2013 5:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who laid the smackdown on Barron Hilton's face this week is claiming Lindsay Lohan had nothing to do with the attack ... and his rep tells TMZ the blame falls entirely on Barron.
A rep for Ray Lemoine (yes, really) claims his fists only started flying after Barron refused to leave the house ... and says Paris Hilton's little brother got physical first.
We're told Ray had been renting the house for a few days -- and allowed LiLo to stay there because she was a friend of a friend ... but claims Hilton got all pissy when Lemoine asked him to leave after the party Friday morning.
The rep claims Hilton pulled the "do you know who I am card" but Ray didn't care -- so Barron pushed him ... and that's when things got violent.
We broke the story -- Barron told cops Ray attacked him at Lindsay's request ... but the rep says Ray is adamant Lindsay had nothing to do with his actions.
Still doesn't explain this video.

Kordell TRIED To Muzzle Me
... I Told Him to Stick It
12/8/2013 12:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kordell Stewart tried to legally block Porsha Williams from blabbing about his personal life on "Real Housewives of ATL" back in April ... but she blew him off and trashed him anyway, TMZ has learned.
TMZ obtained legal docs showing the former NFL star approached Porsha back in April (right after he filed for divorce) and asked her to sign a confidentiality agreement ... in which they would both agree to keep their marriage problems private.
But Porsha -- probably knowing if she didn't talk about Kordell, she would lose screen time (and possibly her role on the show) -- refused to sign the document ... and turned up the Kordell-bashing to an all-time high. During the show, she even implied he was secretly gay.
The marriage officially ended last week -- and just a few days after the divorce was finalized, Porsha seemed extremely pleased with her new single status.

12/7/2013 8:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paris Hilton has a message for Lindsay Lohan -- and the guy who allegedly put Paris' younger brother in the hospital this week after beating him down -- WATCH YOUR BACK!!!!
Barron Hilton posted a photo of his jacked up face on Instagram Saturday -- showing the aftermath of his brawl with a guy he claims punched the crap out of him at LiLo's request ... and it fired Paris up.
Paris commented on the pic saying, "They both will pay for what they did. No one f***s with my family and gets away with it!!"
And she even added TWO hot-head emoticons to show she means business.
For what it's worth -- Lindsay and her dad deny she had anything to do with the incident ... even though there's video telling a different story.
The not-so simple life.
