(New information bolded)
Paris Hilton's little brother Barron Hilton was jumped this morning -- and beaten to a pulp -- and he claims Lindsay Lohan masterminded the attack, TMZ has learned.
We know Lindsay's denying she ordered the hit -- in fact, she claims she wasn't even on the scene at the time of the incident -- but now we have video (above) that proves otherwise. It shows Barron (blonde hair, white shirt) and his friends confronting LiLo right after the attack.
Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us ... Barron attended a party last night at a Miami mansion where Lindsay has been staying while she's in town for an art festival -- a party that lasted until well after the sun came up.
We're told ... during the party, someone accused Barron of talking smack about Lindsay -- and a short time later he was attacked and beaten to a pulp. TMZ obtained a photo of the damage.
We know ... 24-year-old Barron spoke with police following the incident. He claims Lohan orchestrated the beating.
Barron told cops Lindsay approached him at the party with a male friend and began screaming, "'You talk sh*t about me to my boyfriend, this is what you get."
As the guy proceeded to pummel Barron, Hilton claims Lindsay was laughing and egging him on.
Cops were called to the scene and interviewed Barron. We're told Barron doesn't know the identity of his attacker but is adamant Lindsay is the person behind the attack.
We spoke to Michael Lohan who insists Lindsay had nothing to do with the attack and had left the mansion BEFORE the fight went down.
Michael claims there are several witnesses -- including security guards -- who will back up Lindsay's alibi.
Michael says Lindsay was adamant she didn't want to be around any trouble ... i.e. drugs, alcohol, violence ... and even had people removed from the house before the fight ever went down.
Problem with that alibi is -- the video of Barron nearly face-to-face with Lilo outside the mansion ... just moments after the fight.
Lindsay's had bad blood with the Hiltons for years -- stemming back to when Paris' friend Brandon Davis went on the infamous "firecrotch" rant back in 2006.

But last night, Leah was stoic ... until we chatted about Kirstie's new sitcom. Check the clip to hear what Leah really thinks.

The nasty divorce between "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams and Kordell Stewart is officially over ... and Kordell says he couldn't be more thrilled to get such a horrible person out of his life.
TMZ spoke with Kordell's lawyer, Shiel Edlin, who tells us the divorce has been finalized ... ending the 2-and-a-half year marriage between the former NFL player and the Bravo reality star.
Kordell's lawyer says Stewart is "very disappointed" the marriage fell apart, because he expected to be married for life."
But the former Pittsburgh Steelers star is clearly still FUMING after Porsha began reigniting rumors that Kordell is gay. Kordell adamantly denied the allegations.
"For reasons we cannot understand, [Porsha] displayed a reckless abandonment of anything close to the truth over the last eight months," Kordell's lawyer tells us.
"We are also hopeful that Porsha will stop villifying Kordell at every opportunity."
The two were married in 2011. They have no children together.

12/5/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Australian hotel tagged by Justin Bieber is going to war against the city's mayor ... defying hizzoner's order to remove it, and going so far as to PROTECT it from being cleaned up.
TMZ broke the story ... Justin covered a wall at the QT Gold Coast with some colorful graffiti monsters -- angering Mayor Tom Tate, who then sent a videotaped message to the "pop princess" demanding he clean it up.
Justin hasn't responded to the mayor, but now hotel officials have -- telling us they're so proud of the Bieb's handiwork ... they're covering it with a black tarp so no one can remove it.
Officially, we're told the cover-up is there to shield the graffiti from rain and sun ... but clearly it also sends a message to roving do-gooders: HANDS OFF BIEBER'S MASTERPIECE.

Mel and her husband Stephen Belafonte were at Boa Steakhouse in L.A. with comic Faizon Love (Big Worm in "Friday") ... when Faizon told us he's still at war with Katt, who allegedly pulled a GUN on him last year.
Faizon tells TMZ ... he thought the beef had blown over ... until recently when Katt started talking more smack to him online.
Faizon proceeded to TRASH Katt on camera ... telling us, "He can't f*ck with me on the stage, on the screen or in these streets." You can tell Faizon is seriously pissed.
That's when Mel B jumped in -- saying, "I got your back" ... adding, "Who is Katt Williams anyway?"
Them's fighting words.

Producers Stole My Idea for 'Hollywood Exes'
12/3/2013 6:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One of Eddie Murphy's baby mamas is now suing over "Hollywood Exes" -- claiming she came up with the idea for the reality show back in 2008 and producers STOLE it from her ... then cast one of Eddie's OTHER exes in her place.
Tamara Johnson filed the lawsuit against producers Lynch-Dyson Entertainment, claiming she pitched an idea to Vernon Lynch in 2008 called "The Hollywood ExClub" about a group of celebrity baby mamas ... inspired by her own relationship with Eddie Murphy ... but the discussions went nowhere.
Then in 2011, Tamara says she got wind VH1 was making a show called "Hollywood Exes" -- produced by Lynch-Dyson -- which she claims was a complete rip-off of her idea.
The show eventually premiered in 2012, starring girls Tamara had in mind for her own show ... like Andrea Kelly. But the biggest slap in the face ... Eddie Murphy's other ex Nicole Murphy was cast instead of Tamara.
Tamara claims she contacted Lynch-Dyson many times about getting credit -- and money -- for her role in creating the show ... but she's been nothing but rebuffed.
She's now suing for at least $1 million. Calls to Lynch-Dyson weren't returned.

'I Didn't Even Know We Were Mad'
12/2/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Katt Williams says if Kanye West's going to throw his weight around ... he could do something a lot more important than boycotting a pricey fashion designer.
We talked to Katt at LAX and asked him about Kanye's mission ... to boycott Louis Vuitton because he was snubbed by the company's leaders.
Katt told us, "I would hope that's not what we use all that black power for" ... and said he didn't realize people were all that mad at LV in the first place.
So, bottom line ... will Katt support Kanye's boycott of LV? Wait 'til you hear his answer. He even demonstrates with props.
Kelly Rutherford Custody Battle
I Need A Script ...
To Talk To My Ex
12/1/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kelly Rutherford's custody battle with her ex-husband is so hateful … they're now under a court order to speak politely to each other, and get this -- in certain situations they're legally required to follow a SCRIPT!
The custody orders -- obtained by TMZ -- spell out precisely what Rutherford and her ex, Daniel Giersch, can and can't say … and how to behave around their 2 young children.
The docs order them to "exchange polite and friendly greetings." And Giersch, who's German, has to speak in English whenever they meet for the hand off. -- so he can't trash her in a foreign language without her knowledge.
If a kid doesn't want to leave one parent ... there's a drill for that, too ... the adults must follow a script that's actually included in the court order:
"Have a great time with [other parent]. I'll talk to you tomorrow," and will say to the other parent, "[Name], please come and help me."
The script thing may sound crazy, but hey, Kelly IS an actress.
Gets Offer on Brooke's House ...
But Could Cost Him $2 MILLION
11/30/2013 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen is one step closer to kicking Brooke Mueller's ass out of the house he bought for her -- TMZ has learned a real estate firm wants to buy the pad, but at such a discount ... Charlie would have to be desperate. Oh wait, he is.
TMZ obtained a copy of the letter Dginger Group fired off to Sheen's people offering $2,599,000 for the house ... along with a guarantee to close the deal in less than 7 days.
As we previously reported ... Sheen told Brooke he wants her out NOW, and even sent her a letter saying he's aggressively trying to sell the place.
But here's the rub -- Charlie bought the house for around $4.8 mil ... which means he'd be taking a massive $2.2 million bath if he accepts the current offer.
Our sources say Sheen's willing to sell at a reduced rate, but this might be pushing it.
Question is: how badly, and how quickly, do you want Brooke gone, Charlie?
Asks Judge to BAN Dina's Book
11/30/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Lohan wants 2 things to burn in hell ... Dina Lohan and her book ... a book he wants stopped.
Michael was contacted by Birdstreet Books this week, informing him Dina had written a tell-all and he was a featured player. It seems Birdstreet wanted Michael to sign off, but not so fast -- Michael said he wants to see what she wrote ... line for line.
And Mr. Lohan reminded the publishing house ... he and Dina are under a gag order, and that applies to books, so she can't legally write trash about him.
Michael is as certain as certain can be ... Dina's not writing a love letter to him in the book, and unless he sees the draft and signs off, he'll go to court to stop it in its tracks.
Charlie to Brooke
Pack Your Bags Now
AND GET OUT
11/29/2013 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen is done playing games with Brooke Mueller -- TMZ has learned, his attorney has sent her a letter demanding she move out of the home he bought for her ... RIGHT NOW.
Sources tell TMZ, the letter explains that Charlie is aggressively trying to sell the home -- which he purchased for Brooke so she and their twins could live close to him -- and she needs to pack her bags, stat.
But he doesn't just want her out of the house ... we're told Charlie wants her to move far, far away ... away from him and his other family with Denise Richards.
As we reported, Charlie is putting the home up for sale -- after purchasing it for around $4.8 million -- and is making the new price very attractive in order to sell it fast.
In fact, Charlie is so determined to get Brooke out of his life ... he's telling friends he'd gladly sell the house for a dollar just to get her out of his neighborhood.
Our sources say Brooke's brother Scott -- who's living with her in the gated community as the twins' temporary guardian -- hasn't been notified about any kind of move-out order.
Sources close to Sheen tell us, Charlie believes the letter was the motivating factor behind Brooke's allegations that Denise abused the twins ... Brooke was angry, and that's how she retaliated.
Conrad Murray to MJ Estate
IT'S YOUR FAULT
I'm Blabbing About MJ's Penis
11/29/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Conrad Murray is pointing the finger back at Michael Jackson's Estate -- after it threatened to sue over stories he told about holding MJ's penis -- claiming the Estate was the first to open the can of worms that is MJ's medical secrets.
As we reported, the MJ Estate is threatening to sue Murray for blabbing to the media about the singer's sordid medical details -- including a story about holding Michael's penis every night. The Estate is claiming Murray has been violating the doctor-patient privilege by running his mouth in public.
But sources close to Murray tell us, he's not scared ... because he believes once Katherine sued for wrongful death (and exposed a bunch of MJ's medical secrets at the trial) she compromised the doctor-patient privilege on her son's behalf.
Murray's team believes the information the Estate is trying to protect is, at least generally speaking, already out in the public ... exposed during the AEG wrongful death trial ... so he's not saying anything new.
