Jim Carrey STD Allegations Are False ... Made by My Ex's Sham 'Husband'

9/22/2016 9:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922_jim_carrey_Cathriona-White_tmz_instagram_2Jim Carrey is dismissing the claim he transmitted STDs to his ex-girlfriend as a totally bogus attempt to milk him for money ... money he has no intention of paying.

Carrey's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ ... Mark Burton's amended lawsuit -- with the allegation Cathriona White contracted 3 forms of STD from Jim --  is "categorically disputed. This is a desperate, bogus claim made by the 'husband' of the sham marriage."

As we've reported, Burton is Cathriona's estranged husband who filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey, but Singer alleges Burton's marriage to her was merely of the green card variety.

Singer says numerous witnesses will confirm Burton "engaged in an illegal sham marriage in violation of the Federal law prohibiting marriage fraud to evade immigration laws." He claims Burton and White didn't even live in the same state after their wedding.

Carrey's attorney additionally says the STD claim -- allegedly made in 2013 -- makes no sense because Cathriona reached out to Jim in 2014, begging him to continue the relationship, and they were even working an agreement.

Singer also doubles down on what Carrey already told us -- that he will NOT settle with Burton and will fight what they consider a "shakedown lawsuit."

9/22/2016 5:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A close family friend of Robby Gordon's father called 911 after entering the house and seeing 2 dead bodies, and immediately said it looked like a murder-suicide. 

The friend was very calm during the call -- he says he's a retired firefighter -- and says "Baja" Bob Gordon's body was in the bathroom and his wife, Sharon, was in the bedroom. He says he could see a rifle next to Bob's body.

As we reported ... a butcher knife was found near the wife's body. Police are investigating all angles of the case.

Jim Carrey Accused of Giving Ex-GF STDs ... Triggering Suicide

9/22/2016 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922_jim_carrey_Cathriona-White_tmz_instagramJim Carrey's deceased ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, was suicidal because she had STDs she believed she contracted from Carrey ... according to a lawsuit filed by White's estranged husband.

Mark Burton amended the wrongful death suit which he filed against Carrey -- and in the new docs he says Cathriona had a text conversation with Jim in Feb. 2013 ... where she told him she thought she had contracted an STD.

In the docs, Burton says Cathriona got tested and discovered she had Herpes Type I, Herpes Type 2 and Gonorrhea. He says Jim tried to pressure her to keep quiet about it, which she did.

Burton says before Cathriona committed suicide in Sept. 2015, she wrote a letter to Jim, saying the STDs would make it impossible for her to find someone new after their breakup. She also referred to herself as "damaged goods."

Burton's lawsuit now includes text messages he says Jim and Cathriona exchanged in 2013 ... including the ones referencing the STDs.

We've reached out to Carrey's lawyers and reps, but haven't heard back yet -- but they've previously said Burton is just attempting to profit off White's death.

EXCLUSIVE

092216_gigi_storm_shadow_security_primaryGigi Hadid's one forgiving boss -- she's not canning her security team after she was attacked in Milan ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Gigi say she believes the guy was only able to grab her from behind because her bodyguards thought he was a friend of hers or Bella Hadid.

That may sound like a weak excuse, but we're told the guards were only hired for Fashion Week -- it's not her personal crew -- so she's willing to cut 'em a little slack.  

Gigi didn't need much help fighting off the grabby prankster anyway. Turns out ... she's been training for a moment like this.

Brad Pitt Under Investigation for Child Abuse

9/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_brad_pitt_gettyBrad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that's what triggered the divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We're told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We're told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We're also told the LAPD has the case ... which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse ... just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, "He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children," adding, "It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light."

Chris Brown Sayonara, Japan! Gun Case Holds Up Tour

9/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-chris-brown-tmz-getty-03Chris Brown fans in Japan are getting screwed by LAPD's investigation into his gun case ... which is preventing the singer from boarding a jet plane to perform there.

CB has shows scheduled in Tokyo next week and sources close to Chris tell us he applied for permission to enter the country on a working visa. However, we're told Japanese officials flagged Chris and denied him entry due to the investigation into claims he pulled a gun on a woman.

A Japanese consulate official tells TMZ the country has a very low tolerance for admitting visitors with criminal backgrounds and open cases. Brown faced this same kind of scrutiny in Australia over his probation due to the Rihanna case.

A source close to Chris tells us there's a chance he'll reapply for Japan before the tour dates. His legal team thinks the case is dragging because cops have no case, and Chris' pockets shouldn't suffer in the interim.

Chris Bosh Interior Design Firm Sues You Screwed Us Out of Millions!!!

9/21/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_chris-bosh_GETTYChris Bosh committed a flagrant foul on an interior design company, hiring them to work on his fancy new Texas home with no intention of paying up ... according to a new lawsuit.

MJB Design Group claims Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, sought their help with the Texas project because they had worked with them already in Florida, where the firm is based.

According to the docs ... MJB entered into an agreement with the Boshes in January 2015 to provide interior design services and all materials for the Texas property until it was done, which was supposed to be in May 2016.

MJB claims this was all a sham ... because the Boshes dragged their heels during construction knowing it would never be done on time, but still promised them a paycheck.

The Boshes' home was not built on time and they backed out of their deal with MJB last month ... according to the suit.

MJB is suing Bosh and his wife for more than $2 mil -- a huge price tag for the NBA star whose playing days might be over.

We reached out to Bosh for comment ... so far, no word back.

His attorney said he was unaware of the case and didn't realize he was supposed to be in court.update-grey-gray-barAn arrest warrant has been issued for NFL star Josh Gordon, 'cause the 25-year-old blew off a judge several times in a paternity case.

The Browns issued a statement, saying, "We are aware of the situation. Josh and his attorney are working with the Cuyahoga County Courts to resolve this matter. We have no further comment at this time."

Chris Brown Lawyer D.A.'s Got Zilch on My Client LAPD Says Not So Fast

9/21/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0921-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown's attorney seems to have an idea where the singer's assault case is headed ... nowhere. But cops are saying ... the investigation's in full swing.

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, just suggested the case against Chris has fallen apart. When Chris was arrested August 30, he was due in court for an arraignment this past Tuesday. Not only did the authorities miss that deadline, we've confirmed cops haven't even presented the file to the D.A.

But law enforcement sources say ... detectives are knee-deep in the investigation, interviewing witnesses and compiling evidence. We've learned the arraignment date has been extended 15 days so detectives can complete their investigation and send the case on to prosecutors.

As we reported, Brown was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, after allegedly pointing a gun at houseguest Baylee Curran.

Meantime ... Chris is cashing in on the whole ordeal. He's selling these shirts and, in his own artistic way, tells us exactly how he feels about Curran.
