Michael Jackson New Alleged Child Sex Abuse Victim ... I Have Proof He Paid Me Hush Money

10/25/2016 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025_michael-jackson_gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar2:30 PM PT -- We have received the following statement from Michael Jackson's estate attorney:

"This is yet another attempt to hit the lottery by suing the Estate of Michael Jackson more than seven years after Michael’s death and close to 30 years after these incidents supposedly occurred. We believe this claim was created from whole cloth and is without any merit. It’s also no coincidence that this woman is represented by the same attorneys involved in two other frivolous claims against the Estate."

update_grey_gray_barMichael Jackson wrote a bunch of checks totaling over $900,000 to cover up child sex abuse allegations from a then 12-year-old girl, but now she's suing 30 years later.

The woman filed the lawsuit as a Jane Doe, saying Michael started abusing her in 1986 when she and her mother had stopped by his Hayvenhurst home as sightseers. She says Michael invited them into the house to see his "candy area." She claims Michael fondled her genitals and gave her "movie kisses" ... tongue kissing her mouth and body. She also alleges there was vaginal penetration.

According to the docs, the abuse continued through puberty. When she was 16, she says Michael started writing checks to keep her quiet. 

1025_michael_jackson_letters_checks_subShe says the first was for $2,500, and the biggest one came in 1993 for $600k. All told she says she got more than $900k over 3 years -- and the docs she filed include copies of checks and stubs showing the payments.

We've reached out to the MJ Estate ... so far, no comment.

The woman is suing several of Jackson's companies for emotional distress, negligence and much more ... and wants unspecified damages.

We're also told cops will patrol Kendall's home and monitor Shavaughn's whereabouts ... if he stays in town.

Donald Trump My Porn Star Accuser? 'Sure She's Never Been Grabbed'

10/24/2016 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Donald Trump says his latest accuser is no saint ... and he sounds certain she's been grabbed plenty of times in her line of work. 

The Donald went on WGIR radio's "New Hampshire Today" and sarcastically said he was sure porn star Jessica Drake has "never been grabbed before." Drake claims Trump grabbed her, kissed her and solicited her for sex in 2006. 

Trump says her claims and the allegations of the other accusers are BS.

Drake launched an online sex shop just before going public with her allegations -- but her lawyer, Gloria Allred, says the timing was a coincidence.

Suge Knight Sues Dr. Dre He Hired a Hitman to Kill Me

10/24/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-suge-knight-dr-dre-tmz-02Dr. Dre hired a hitman to off Suge Knight, and it's all over Beats By Dre ... so claims Suge in a new lawsuit.

Suge says he had a lifetime management deal with Dre, which entitled him to a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings. When Beats came along, Suge alleges Dre tried to cut him out, in part because Apple -- which bought Beats from Dre -- didn't want its brand associated with Suge.

Dre's solution, according to the lawsuit, was to hire a hitman to kill Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 VMAs weekend. Suge was shot 7 times in the abdomen but recovered.

The suit claims the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. questioned a man named T-Money about the shooting, and he told investigators he was paid by Dre to kill Suge. Suge says, despite 37 cameras in 1 OAK, no arrests were made.

Fast-forward to January, 2015, when Suge drove to Tam's Burgers in Compton. The suit claims Dre and Universal -- which produced "Straight Outta Compton" -- paid Cle "Bone" Sloan $300,000, insinuating he would take care of the Suge problem.

As we first reported, Suge struck Sloan with his truck, seriously injuring him. Suge also ran over Terry Carter and killed him, but Suge says it was an accident and he was trying to escape an ambush.

Suge is suing Dre, Apple, Universal and Tam's for unspecified damages. Among his damages -- 30% of Dre's take from the Beats sale. Dre got $1 billion, so Suge wants around $300 million.

update_graphic_red_bar12:30 PM PT -- A lawyer for Dr. Dre tells us, "Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."

Tom Brady Wusses Out On Josh Brown Suspension ... Won't Compare to Deflategate

10/24/2016 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Tom Brady was asked straight-up if he thought it was unfair that the NFL only suspended Josh Brown for 1 game for domestic violence ... when he was suspended FOUR for Deflategate.

His answer ... flaccid.

"I think it is the league’s issue,” Brady said while calling in to the Kirk and Callahan radio show Monday morning.

"Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that. I’m trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility. I certainly don’t condone any part of domestic violence. I think it is a terrible, terrible thing. I think the league, they have to handle those types of things."

He added, "I’m just going to stay in my lane. Like I said, it’s up to them to decide whatever they want to do. I’m just going to try try and stay out of any kind of my opinion. I certainly have opinions, I just don’t really care to share them."

Brady did lash out on the general topic of domestic violence -- saying, of course, he does not condone it. 

"Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can’t defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that."

"I was very fortunate to grow up with sisters, a mother -- I condone no part of that. That is absolutely something I would never be a part of or do. It’s a terrible tragedy.”
