Casey Kasem's body is about to top James Brown's on the mileage front ... because we've learned it's being moved again ... this time thousands of miles away.
Casey's body is currently in a Montreal funeral home -- nearly 2 months after he died in Washington.
Sources tell us ... Jean Kasem is making arrangements to have the body flown to Europe ... possibly Oslo, Norway.
The move is significant. TMZ broke the story ... the Santa Monica Police Dept. is investigating Jean for elder abuse ... after one of Casey's daughters filed a complaint alleging Casey developed a fatal infection as a result of Jean taking him on a multi-state car ride to evade the family.
The Santa Monica PD wants a full autopsy ... which so far has not been performed. Casey's kids believe Jean is on the run because she knows if the family finds the body and gets a court order it could be incriminating for her.
We know Casey's kids are scrambling right now in an attempt to keep the body in Canada until they can get a court order.
Group Blew Up
Over Diabolical Conspiracy
8/8/2014 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Danity Kane's last straw was an ambush ... 2 girls against the third.
Sources connected with the group tell TMZ ... Dawn Richard went nuclear when she found out Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex were meeting behind her back ... recording tracks without her and discussing business matters involving the group.
We're told the cover was blown Monday ... when Dawn showed up to the studio and interrupted a private session with Shannon and Aubrey. That's what set things off and caused the fight, that ended with Dawn punching Aubrey.
Dawn tells us the stories about her being a brute are "exaggerated lies and false accusations."
Whoopi Takes Shot at Barbara ...
During Heated Test Show
8/8/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rosie O'Donnell got into a heated showdown over abortion with CNN's S.E. Cupp during a 'View' test show taping with Whoopi Goldberg ... who ended up taking a thinly-veiled shot at Barbara Walters.
Production sources at "The View" tell us Cupp -- who's vying for the conservative role on the show -- had a "nasty" debate yesterday over the Australian couple making headlines for asking their surrogate to abort a Down syndrome baby.
We're told things escalated when Whoopi jumped in and asked Cupp if she ever had to make a decision about abortion. That shut everyone up momentarily ... until Rosie chastised Cupp, saying she didn't want another Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
Here's where Babs comes in. After the taping ... Whoopi -- in front of producers and several potential replacement hosts -- said she'd been "working with a cranky 85-year-old woman who's mad about everything for 2 years, and I need a break."
Hard to tell who Whoopi was really upset with -- Rosie or Cupp -- but the shot at Barbara was undeniable.
As for Cupp ... doesn't sound like she left on Rosie's good side -- but then again ... that may be exactly what "The View" needs.
Cops Investigating Violent Studio Catfight
8/5/2014 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A Danity Kane recording sesh erupted in violence Monday ... and they actually needed a first aid kit.
We're told bandmates Dawn Richard and Aubrey O'Day got physical during a disagreement at an L.A. studio on Monday, resulting in Dawn slugging Aubrey in the head with a closed fist.
DK's third member, Shannon Bex, was also there and tried unsuccessfully to break up the fight.
This isn't the first time DK's had issues ... the original five members disbanded in 2009, with four of them reuniting last year. Aundrea Fimbres quickly dropped out, leaving the remaining three.
Aubrey filed a battery report. Cops are investigating.
Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton
8/3/2014 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim posted the picture of their reunion on Instagram with the caption, "Reminiscing about the 1st time we went to Ibiza in 2006! @parishilton it was so good to see you & catch up!! Loves it lol"
The duo used to be besties. One of the most epic videos TMZ ever shot was when Paris took her new best friend Kim -- whom we had never seen before -- to Hyde back in 2005. They sauntered past Paris' enemy/former BFF Tara Reid ... who defeatedly watched from behind the velvet rope as the duo entered.
But Kim got famous -- even more famous than Paris -- and the relationship went in the dumper. In 2008, Paris bashed Kim during a radio interview saying her butt "looks like cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag."
Tara Reid ... there's still hope.

Parties Like a Wild Man
8/1/2014 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Orlando Bloom is not acting like the loser of the Justin Bieber scuffle ... he looks like he's having the best time of his life at a restaurant near Ibiza.
Orlando looks a little -- well, buzzed -- as he dances furiously to "Happy" ... flailing his arms in the air.
At one point he pulls what appears to be his GF -- Erica Packer -- up on the bench he's dancing on and kisses her hand.
But Erica does not have a monopoly on Orlando. A bunch of chicks swarm him as he dances uncontrollably.
This is the funnest feud ever.
Eats Klitschko's Food ...
Ends Up in the Hospital
8/1/2014 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-heavyweight champ Shannon Briggs went toe-to-toe with Wladimir Klitschko in the most insane way -- but did it in flip flops -- and ended up landing himself in the hospital with an injured foot.
According to Shannon ... he saw Wlad eating at a restaurant in Miami, walked up to him and had the balls to start eating food right off his plate! Briggs says Wlad got pissed and poured out a glass of water on him.
Briggs slipped and fell because he was wearing flip flops ... he claims, and also because one of Wlad's boys was rushing him.
Of course Briggs has been hounding Klitschko -- earlier this week he interrupted the champ's training session, repeatedly called him a coward ... and tried to taunt him into a fight.
Briggs says he went to the emergency room with cuts on his foot and leg from broken glass ... but won't need stitches.
We've called Klitschko's camp ... no word back yet.
I Look Bad Ass!
8/1/2014 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber is rubbing Orlando Bloom's nose in their Ibiza war not because he's angry, but because he thinks it makes him look hard ... and we're getting this from people who are around him right now.
Here's what we're being told ... Justin's story is that he had no ax to grind with Orlando when he saw him at Cipriani restaurant before the clash. Justin insists he didn't even recognize Orlando and simply extended his hand. Bieber was pissed that Orlando rebuffed him.
Now here's the thing. Bieber quickly realized the public resoundingly believed Justin won the "fight" ... and that's when he decided he could up his tough game by humiliating Orlando with pics of Miranda on Instagram. It was all about looking tough.
When people started saying Bieber was bad ass for posting the pic ... he upped his game with the pic of a weepy Orlando.
One source said Justin is "irrational" in the glee he's taking over the scuffle.
Bottom line -- we're told he's loving this ... having a great time in Ibiza. And he thinks it's cool that people think he banged Orlando's then-wife and still won the war.
I Did NOT Bang Orlando Bloom...
It Was Just A Cigarette Break
7/31/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez says she's never done the nasty with Orlando Bloom ... and she has absolutely zero to do with his raging battle against her ex-BF Justin Bieber.
Sources directly connected to Selena tell us ... the reason she was with Orlando back in March is because their manager organized an event for his clients at We Day in Oakland.
As for the widely-circulated photo of Orlando and Selena at a Chelsea Handler show in L.A. a few weeks later ... it was nothing more than a smoke break. They were actually with their respective groups of friends and happened to be next to each other when the pic was snapped.
And here's Orlando's speech at the same event.

7/31/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
An animated Montel Williams pounded his chest, and launched into an epic rant ... calling out President Barack Obama for failing to respond to his petition to fix the VA hospital crisis.
Montel -- a 22-year military vet and staunch supporter of our troops -- was pointing fingers straight at the White House ... getting visibly upset about Obama's lack of action to help vets.
Montel's not messing around -- his petition has over 100,000 signatures.
He officially puts the Prez on blast in this clip ... looking into our camera and shouting, "Sign the papers, homeboy."
Your move, Homie-in-Chief.

Miranda Kerr's body isn't the only thing that's flawless ... so's her timing, because she was officially made the new face of 7 For All Mankind jeans ... hours after she triggered a celeb scuffle.
The newly released 30-second spot is smokin' -- Miranda not only looks amazing ... she sounds SO hot.
The 7 Jeans campaign slogan is diabolically perfect: "He loves her. She loves him, but he can’t have her. She has the power. She is in control."
Helen of Troy ... so 1190 BC.
Justin to Orlando
Now You Bawl
7/30/2014 2:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber has declared Instagram war on Orlando Bloom ... with a pic of the Brit dissolving into tears.
It's Bieber's second Instagram salvo ... hours after Orlando took a swing at him at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza he posted a sexy pic of Miranda Kerr and then quickly took it down.
Miranda -- the Helen of Troy in this war -- was the trigger for the bar scuffle. It's clear Orlando felt Justin was banging her while they were still man and wife.
We'd say there's no use crying over Miranda, but then again ...
