(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.

Jennifer Lopez only wants one thing out of her divorce from Marc Anthony -- which is still going more than 18 months later -- and that's ... her old name.
J.Lo just filed her legal response to Marc's petition, and according to the docs her legal name is still Jennifer Muniz ... which is Marc's real last name.
Marc and Jennifer's petitions are identical on custody issues -- both are asking for joint legal and physical custody of their twins -- but in her docs, J.Lo requests the court restore her former name -- Jennifer Lopez.
J & M got married in 2004, officially separated in 2011, and Marc filed for divorce in April, 2012.

Two sickos got busted today for allegedly stealing parts of the Porsche Paul Walker died in Saturday afternoon ... according to the Sheriff's Department.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department ... the two men snatched the part when the tow truck stopped at a red light -- however the truck driver saw them drive off, and helped detectives identify them.
We're told 18-year-old Jameson Witty was arrested today -- and his cohort, who is out of state, has been contacted and will surrender soon.
The T-top was recovered in Witty's home -- and, remarkably, he actually posted a pic of the loot on his Instagram and bragged, "Piece of Paul walkers car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light."
Alleged criminals are dumb.
Witty and his pal are expected to be booked for felony grand theft and tampering with evidence.

One of the men who was with Jameis Winston on the night of the alleged rape told police he WITNESSED the accuser perform oral sex on the Florida State QB ... and she seemed "more than willing."
TMZ Sports obtained documents which show that Jameis' pal Chris Casher told police he went to Potbelly's bar with JW and another friend, Ron Darby, on the night of the alleged rape.
Casher says the accuser, a blonde woman, was not drunk when she left the bar with Jameis and when they got to his apartment, they went into JW's bedroom together.
Chris says, "Since the door was partially open, I looked through the opening and we could see her giving Jameis oral sex. They had only been in the room a few minutes before I witnessed her giving him oral sex."
"Jameis was facing the door with his hands on his hips while she was in front of him on her knees. I witnessed them both take each other's clothes off and lay on the bed."
"Jameis and the blonde female began having intercourse."
Chris says .. "as a joke" he busted into the room to embarrass Jameis ... but the woman shooed him out of the room, closed the door and turned off the lights for more privacy.
Chris says he and his other buddy Ron could hear the two having sex.
The woman eventually claimed Jameis raped her. The State Attorney eventually decided the claim could not be proved.
Paul Walker Death
Image in Burning Porsche Video is NOT Paul
12/5/2013 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker did NOT make a final desperate attempt to escape the burning wreckage -- and the image seen in video shot right after the crash is definitely NOT Paul ... TMZ has learned.
There had been rampant speculation and buzz on the Internet that a shadowy figure seen around 23 seconds into the video of the burning Porsche Carrera GT ... was Walker trying to get out of the vehicle, but sources connected to the investigation now say it just isn't so ... for several reasons.
First, the sources tell us that, based on photographs of the wreckage ... Paul's body was pinned in an area of the car that makes it clear he couldn't have been flailing outside the vehicle.
Also ...we're told that based on the injuries he suffered, Paul died within a nanosecond of impact, and therefore it's impossible for the image in the video to be him.
It's not clear how long after impact the video starts, but clearly more than a nanosecond.
As for what the image really is -- we're told law enforcement has watched the video, and based on evidence from the crash site ... it appears to be a part of the car's roof burning.
