Jennifer Lopez is in the final stages of making a deal to perform in Vegas ... and according to the contract -- obtained by TMZ -- she'll rake in more per show than Britney Spears.
Jennifer is being offered a whopping $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood ... the same place Britney is performing.
Britney is making a paltry $310K a show.
But Britney will ultimately score more than JLo because her contract provides she'll do 96 shows over 2 years. JLo will do 72 shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period -- the contract leaves that open.
So, in the end, Britney is guaranteed $29,760,000 for the 2-year run. JLo will be guaranteed $26,383,326.
It's all chump change compared to Celine Dion, who does 70 shows a year and gets $33,320,000.

Probation officials are recommending Hunt serve 6 months in jail. They also want her to enroll in an anger management program and pay Nam restitution.
Accused of Mob Hit ...
Yous Guys Stole My Identity
10/21/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"The Simpsons" pulled off a major heist when the mafioso character Louie rolled into Springfield -- and now a "Goodfellas" star wants a cut of the action.
Frank Sivero played Frankie Carbone in the classic 1990 film ... and says "The Simpsons" created a Carbone copy of that character when Louie first appeared in an episode entitled "Bart the Murderer" on Oct. 10, 1991.
Louie, who is Fat Tony's henchman on "The Simpsons" ... is hardly a regular. According to Sivero's lawsuit against FOX, the character appeared in 15 more episodes between his debut and April 27, 2014.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Sivero says he lived in the same apartment complex as some of the 'Simpsons' writers back in '89 ... and they knew all about the character he "created and developed" for 'Goodfellas.'
To the naked eye ... Louie does look like a dead ringer for Frankie.
Sivero is suing for $100 million ... or a whopping $6,250,000 per episode. We've reached out to FOX for comment, but no word back yet.

Swore Under Oath
Dr. Luke Did NOT Sexually Assault Her
10/21/2014 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kesha admitted Dr. Luke did NOT drug her, did NOT sexually assault her, did NOT have sexual relations with her ... and she swore all of it under oath, which contradicts her lawsuit.
Kesha has accused Dr. Luke of a variety of misdeeds in her lawsuit, including rape, physical and emotional assault. Dr. Luke filed his own suit saying her claims are BS and it's all about Kesha wanting to get out of their management contract.
Now TMZ has obtained a deposition in 2011 in which Kesha and Luke were both being sued by her former manager. Kesha says flat out ... she and Luke never had sexual relations:
The deposition had been sealed ... and this morning Dr. Luke's lawyer went to court asking the judge in his case to unseal the depo and allow it to be used in the current case. We're told Kesha's lawyer argued it was NOT fair game but the judge disagreed and unsealed it.
Kesha's lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, using the depo is "a pathetic attempt to once again blame the victim." Geragos says Kesha lied because "Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha's life and the lives of her family if she didn't cover up his sexual assaults."

"Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts may be convincing in the movies, but not in real life because she's just been charged with lewd conduct for allegedly having sex in her car outside CBS Studios.
Watts went on a campaign against the LAPD ... accusing cops of racism for cuffing her after people complained they were banging in the Mercedes in Studio City. Watts, who claims she and her BF were just making out, walked away from cops in a fury, so they cuffed her and brought her back.
Prosecutors listened to the LAPD audio -- obtained by TMZ -- and realized what was up. Armed with various witnesses and photos of Watts straddling her BF with her breasts exposed, she and the BF were each charged with lewd conduct in public.
The crime is punishable by a maximum of 6 months in L.A. County Jail.

An angry Arquette was seen stomping away from celeb hotspot Craig's Friday night on foot ... with fiancee Christina McLarty in hot pursuit ... sobbing and begging him to come back.
On the video, Arquette can be heard saying, "I'm done. Just like your last guy." Some people took that to mean he was breaking off his 3-month engagement to McLarty, who gave birth to his son, Charlie, last April.
But David tells TMZ ... it was simply an argument between two exhausted new parents. The couple had a baby boy back in April and Arquette says, "We are both hormonal and haven't slept in 6 months. Christina is still breastfeeding, I feel like I am."
He insists they're still engaged and still in love ... and says he takes full responsibility.

To Half Way House
10/21/2014 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice wants to go only half way when it comes to serving her prison sentence ... but prosecutors are now saying over their dead bodies.
Giudice is asking the judge for mercy -- to allow her to serve most of her sentence in a half way house. But we just obtained a letter prosecutors sent to the judge ... vehemently objecting ... claiming the judge made it clear she needed prison punishment, and nothing less.
Teresa had sent a letter to the judge -- which we also obtained -- in which she seems to say she has a right under a law called The Second Chance Act to spend 12 out of the 15 months in the half way house.
But prosecutors say the law doesn't give convicts the right to have their punishment watered down, so all her bellyaching should be ignored.

Molestation Victim Will NOT Sue
10/21/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Stephen Collins is a lucky man ... after confessing to child molestation, we've learned not only will he NOT be prosecuted ... the main victim tells TMZ she will NOT sue him civilly.
Collins confessed in the audiotape ... he repeatedly sexually abused this victim, once placing her hand on his semi-erect penis. The incident occurred in the '70s, but she did not come forward until 2012 ... which is when the NYPD launched its investigation.
The woman -- now in her 50s -- says she will NOT sue Collins because she's not after his money. She says her purpose in coming forward was to encourage other victims to step up -- possibly victims who were molested more recently, so Collins could be prosecuted.
In addition to cooperating with the NYPD, the woman says she called the LAPD to warn them Collins was a sexual predator.
As we first reported ... law enforcement sources at the 3 agencies that are investigating Collins say they cannot have him prosecuted because the cases are too old.
Short story ... he confessed to 3 cases of sexual abuse ... and now he's home free.
