Charles Manson Not Looking Worse for Wear After Medical 911

8/17/2017 4:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charles Manson looked healthy and as anti-Semitic as ever in his latest mugshot.

Manson was photographed Monday at the Corcoran State Prison in Northern California. Prisoners get photographed every few years for security reasons ... if they escape, the photo authorities put out will resemble the inmate.

The 82-year-old Manson, who is serving a life term for the slaughter that bears his name, may have done something with the swastika that seems bolder than before. Then again, the wrinkles may be accentuating it.

He doesn't look worse for wear after he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he spent days for a lesion in his intestines that caused significant bleeding. Surgery was scheduled but canceled ... he was too high risk.

Check out Manson's mug 3 years before ... a lot more hair.

Celebrity Lawyer Mark Kaplan Divorce Client Claims Sexual Assault Kaplan Calls BS

8/17/2017 1:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Vincent Kaplan -- who has repped the likes of Stephen Collins and Kevin Federline -- allegedly forced his tongue down a client's throat and repeatedly told her he needed to bang her to focus on her divorce case ... so she says in a new lawsuit, but Kaplan says this is a revenge lawsuit after he sued her for skipping out on her bill.

Kathy Hakakian claims Kaplan sexually assaulted her numerous times and she was forced to withstand the attack out of fear he'd quit her divorce case.

Kathy says in November 2016 Kaplan insisted meeting at an L.A. bar where he urged her to booze it up to relax. She says he tricked her into showing him her phone, where he found a nude photo of her. She says Kaplan grabbed her, pressed himself against her and put his tongue down her throat.

Hakakian claims Kaplan insisted on driving her home, but he pulled over on a darkened street and started groping and kissing her. She says she demanded that he stop, but she says he responded, "Now I'm motivated to give your case my undivided attention."

She says she stayed on as a client, and at some point they had lunch at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, where she says Kaplan asked, "How's your p***y doing?" She says Kaplan told her, "If you let me see another naked picture of you, it will really help me to focus on your case." She got up and left.

But she still stayed on as a client. Hakakian says Kaplan coaxed her into his office for what she thought was prep for a deposition. They were alone in his office and she says he told her he wanted to have sexual intercourse with her, saying, "When this case is over, I'm going to f**k your p***y so hard from behind you won't know what hit you."

Hakakian, who's repped by attorney Paul Phillips, says when she left she told his receptionist what happened, to which the receptionist replied, "This isn't the first time I've heard that."

Kaplan's rep tells TMZ, he sued her August 7 to get more than $150k that she owes him for lawyer's fees. He says she didn't pay because she was upset with the result in her divorce which ultimately was handled by a different lawyer. Kaplan says her allegations are wild and untrue and he's confident the judge will see it his way.

Diddy Photog Beatdown Case Settled

8/17/2017 1:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy handled some legal business with a paparazzo who claims the rapper's bodyguards jumped him ... but it took more than 5 years.

Diddy finally settled with photographer Gustavo Garces who was allegedly attacked on New Year's Eve 2011 after he snapped some pics of Diddy in his car at a downtown Miami hotel. The photog sued Diddy and his 2 security guys, claiming they held him and punched him while the rapper ordered them to take his camera.

The terms of the settlement are unknown, but this usually means the celeb coughed up some dough to make it go away. We've reached out to both sides ... so far no word back.

And if Gustavo's name sounds familiar, it's possibly because he once accused Justin Bieber of stealing his memory card ... also in Miami.

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J's had it up to HERE trying to strike a settlement with "Celebrity Big Brother" for kicking him off the show ... so he's gonna sue to get the dough he says he's owed.

Sources close to Ray J tell TMZ ... his legal team and the production company have been negotiating for months but talks have hit a wall ... so RJ's manager, David Weintraub, has given his legal team the green light to file papers.

The issue -- Ray J says 'CBB' agreed to pay him $1 million and he says the show's gotta cough it up because 'CBB' unfairly kicked him out following a dental emergency.

TMZ broke the story ... Ray J was booted from the UK show back in January after complaining of an unbearable toothache that required a dentist to visit on set, 8 pain killers and an ambulance ride to the hospital after blacking out.

Ray J will ask that the show pay him the hundreds of thousands he says he's still owed, a public apology and an invitation to come back next season.

EXCLUSIVE

Larry King is heartsick over Donald Trump, because the guy in the Oval is not the guy he's known for 35 years.

Passengers on the TMZ Celebrity Tour spotted the legendary talk show host Wednesday in Bev Hills, and he's very clear ... the Donald Trump he's known over the years was actually pretty liberal and politically androgynous.

King seems genuinely depressed that Trump drank his own Kool-Aid during the election, and became a guy who is unrecognizable to the people who have known him over the years.
