Before this pretty-pretty princess was a fashion forward celebrity she was just another little girl playing dress up in Westminster, London. Can you guess who she is?
Accuses Denise Richards of Child Abuse
11/27/2013 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Brooke Mueller has just declared nuclear war in her child custody dispute with Charlie Sheen -- she's accused Denise Richards of abusing her twins and the 2 other daughters Denise had with Charlie ... sources tell TMZ.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops came to Denise's door Tuesday night and told her they were there to question her about a child abuse claim lodged by Brooke. Denise did not let them inside because her daughters were there.
We're told Denise walked outside and told cops the claim was "ridiculous" and "vindictive" -- that the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services was already handling the dispute ... a dispute that started after Brooke was stripped of custody after a raging drug problem flared up yet again.
Sources say Brooke's latest claim will have dire consequences, especially if it's false, because Denise's daughters and the twins will be grilled about the allegations -- something that is ALWAYS emotionally traumatizing.
We're told Richards made it clear -- she hasn't even seen the twins for 2 weeks, so if Brooke really had a gripe why didn't she lodge it earlier. Also, Brooke has not had contact with Denise's daughters, so the claim is suspicious.
Goes Off On Children Services ... Again
11/26/2013 12:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen broke his promise not to trash the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services ... because he just went off on the agency ... again.
Charlie tweeted the following, everything with the letters DCFS:
Short story ... Charlie is livid that DCFS is allowing Brooke to eventually establish full custody.
He's violated the gag order before, and this obtuse tweet (or not so obtuse) may not sit well with the judge. Remember, Charlie's lawyer promised he'd be a good boy and muzzle himself.

Paris Jackson is doing better as she remains ensconced in a Utah boarding school ... but we're told she's riddled with so many problems she could be there "for years."

Sources say Paris may get a pass to come home for a few days in January, and Katherine is redoing Paris' room for the homecoming.
But the homecoming will be short-lived. Our sources say the boarding school will be home for a long time, very possibly "years."
Marc Anthony's Ex
JLo Gets Child Support
I Got a Crappy Valley Apt!
11/26/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Marc Anthony's ex-wife claims the singer has turned a cold shoulder on her children ... forcing them to sell their home and move into a hovel in the Valley ... while he lives like a king -- and to add insult to injury, he pays the very rich Jennifer Lopez a ton of child support ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Dayanara Torres -- the 1993 Miss Universe -- wants a huge increase in child support -- from $13K per month for their 2 sons, to $113K a month. It's an enormous increase, but she says it's a drop in the bucket for Marc -- who this year boasted he makes $1.25 mil a month -- MINIMUM.
It's especially infuriating for Dayanara, who claims Marc played the poverty card during their divorce, claiming he had such money trouble he had to sell his private island and let some of his staff go. Now get this ... the week the divorce became final, she says he bought JLo a $4 MILLION RING!
Dayanara says Marc goes weeks and even months without seeing their boys, one of whom has special needs. She mentions one instance where he told the boys he couldn't visit because of work, but then they saw him on TV cavorting on a beach with JLo. They were devastated.
Dayanara gives Marc backhanded credit for giving the kids lavish gifts. For example, last XMAS he sent them 4 huge boxes of toys, including an extravagant Lego set. But she says their apartment is so small they have no space to play with them.
She also grouses that Marc actually PAYS JLO child support, and a lot of it -- way more than she gets.
Another Day, Another Baby

Chief Keef just learned he's a daddy ... again ... bad news for him because he now owes another big chunk of change for child support ... TMZ has learned.
Keef's attorney says the rapper admitted he's the father of a 10-month old child ... after being confronted with some pretty conclusive evidence -- his own DNA.
According to the lawyer ... Erica Early went to court in Chicago to establish paternity. The DNA test shows there's a 99.9% chance Keef is the papa.
The 18-year-old rapper is still in court-ordered rehab in California for his weed smoking ... so he wasn't in court when the judge ordered him to pay Early $2,500 a month in child support ... plus, another $25K lump sum payment for the previous 10 months.
But good luck collecting ... Keef owes thousands of dollars in back child support in ANOTHER paternity case ... and he's not coughing it up willingly.

Accused of Betraying Mom
And Screwing African Schools
11/24/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The daughter of the late legendary jazz singer Nina Simone fleeced her mom's Estate and FLAGRANTLY ignored Nina's last wish -- to fund schools for poor kids in Africa ... this according to law enforcement.
Lisa Simone Kelly siphoned more than $2 million that the California Attorney General claims should have been earmarked for music schools in South Africa, Liberia and Ghana. Lisa had access to the money because she was the trustee of her mom's Estate.
The A.G. claims the most flagrant violation is funneling $1.5 mil to Lisa's personal company ... something her mom never approved.
We've learned the A.G. pressured Lisa into resigning as trustee and is now demanding an accounting of funds -- which could result in criminal action.
Shifty Shellshock's Baby Mama
I Want Full Custody
You Smoked Crack in Our Son's Room!
11/23/2013 12:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Shifty Shellshock's baby mama is asking an L.A. judge to take away his visitation rights ... claiming he's a terrible father who once smoked crack in their kid's bedroom.
The "Celebrity Rehab" star's ex Jasmine Lennard filed suit last week against Shifty -- real name Seth Binzer -- seeking full custody ... and removal of his visitation rights.
Lennard says Seth hasn't seen their son since November 2011 -- nor has he paid child support -- so she wants a judge to make her the sole guardian.
Even worse ... Lennard claims Seth is still addicted to a whole slew of drugs ... and his problem is so out of control he once left a crack pipe in their son's room after freebasing.
Jasmine claims she tried to establish Shifty as the son's legal father last year -- but Binzer acted like it wasn't his kid to get out of paying child support, even though he admitted it was his kid on "Celebrity Rehab."
So now, she wants the judge to officially give her full-time custody ... and she wants him to pay up, stat.

Sources close to Bruce Jenner tell TMZ, he 100% backs his 18-year-old daughter's decision Tuesday to expose her nipples on Instagram. As far as he's concerned, she's a fashion model ... and that's what fashion models do.

Just so we're all clear ... Kendall turned 18 on November 3rd. We're proud of her too.
FINALLY Ponies Up the Dough
Still Owes Baby Mama Big
11/20/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chief Keef -- prodigy rapper, horrible parent -- finally paid off some of the $20,900 he owes in child support ... ponying up JUST enough cash to keep his ass from getting arrested ... again.
TMZ has obtained court docs which show on October 21st, the judge in Cook County, IL made Keef an offer he couldn't refuse -- cut a check for $11k to your baby mama and you won't go to jail.
Keef (smartly) forked over the dough ... which means cops won't be ordered to arrest him on sight.
But Keef ain't exactly out of the woods yet -- the rapper is due back in court on December 10 to face the music for blowing off mandatory child support hearings earlier this year.
If the judge finds Keef to be in contempt, he could be sent back to the slammer ... where he's already been this year (twice!) for drug-related offenses.
Stay tuned ...

Casey Kasem's children will NOT assume control over their ailing father's life -- at least not yet -- a judge just denied their request for a temporary conservatorship ... TMZ has learned.
The Kasem kids went to court to show that Casey's wife Jean is not providing the care he needs ... and banned his own children from seeing him.
But a judge denied their request for an emergency conservatorship ... saying he has confidence the issue of visitation with the children can be worked out by attorneys on both sides.
The judge also said a temporary conservatorship is not necessary because Casey -- who is suffering from advanced Parkinson's -- is NOT "at risk" and is getting proper treatment at home.
As we reported, Jean offered the kids a deal ... drop their bid for a conservatorship ... and in return they would each get regularly scheduled, though brief, visits with Casey and notification when he's hospitalized.
The Kasem children rejected that offer.
Kids REJECT Wife's Settlement Offer
11/19/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Things are getting darker in Casey Kasem's world. Casey's 3 kids from a previous marriage have REJECTED a settlement offer proposed by Casey's wife, Jean.
Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Jean asked the kids if they would drop their lawsuit for a conservatorship if she would do the following:
-- Give the kids the right to visit their dad, with strings attached. Each child would have separate visits every 3rd Sunday for 1 hour. A security guard would be in the general vicinity during the visits. The children have to give 72 hours notice before each visit.
-- The kids could also visit during Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas week, Easter Week and his birthday.
-- If Casey is hospitalized, the kids will all be notified. It doesn't provide they can visit him in the hospital.
Casey is quite ill with advanced Parkinson's and the early onset of dementia.
Sources say Casey's kids -- who have not been allowed to see their dad and have filed legal docs to win a conservatorship -- have turned thumbs down on Jean's offer.
