Harvey Weinstein Lawsuits Against Mogul Good Investment for Financing Companies

10/18/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein's accusers don't have to resort to GoFundMe to foot their legal bills if they end up suing, because companies are lining up to front the cash.

Who knew there were legal financing companies that invest in cases that are likely to produce a financial jackpot? It seems these companies think suing Harvey Weinstein and TWC will be a cakewalk. 

The CEO for Legal-Bay tells us they believe many of the women who might sue will get $50k minimum and as high as 7 figures. The company is on the hunt for actresses who aren't big names but may have had their careers blocked by Weinstein. 

Another financing company, Legalist, is offering $100k for litigation costs. A company rep tells us they're not chasing clients, but rather advertising their services on social media. They also think the most likely clients are staffers at TWC and not actresses who often have enough money to sue.

A Legalist rep says the company has settled other sexual assault cases ... some for millions.

Johnny Depp Sues Lawyers for Malpractice

10/17/2017 5:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Depp claims the law firm that represented him for years betrayed him by conspiring with his financial manager who Depp claims fleeced him out of $40 million.

Depp is suing the highly respected entertainment law firm, Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman, LLP ... claiming the lawyers allowed TMG -- Depp's financial managers -- to essentially rob him blind.

Depp has TMG, but now he says his law firm were in cahoots with TMG, which took out enormous loans unbeknownst to debt and secured by the actor's movie residuals. When the residual payments were made to Depp, they were diverted to repay the loans.

The suit claims the law firm built in its fee in the loans and skimmed the money off before Depp was entitled to his money.

And the suit claims the law firm knew fully well what TMG was doing but never alerted Depp.

And get this ... Depp claims during his long relationship with the firm he's paid them tens of millions of dollars in attorney's fees, yet the firm never had him sign a retainer agreement.

Kurt C. Peterson -- the attorney representing the firm tells TMZ ... "The Firm disagrees with Mr. Depp and his counsel on the law and the facts, and intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously." 

O.J. Simpson Parties Like It's 1995 w/ F. Lee Bailey

10/17/2017 2:18 PM PDT

O.J. Simpson's inner circle now includes a blast from the past ... F. Lee Bailey.

O.J. and his former famed criminal defense attorney in the murder trial had dinner Monday night at the Palms Hotel in Vegas. A lot's changed since Bailey and Simpson's famous "Dream Team" helped O.J.'s acquittal in 1995.

Simpson, of course, just got released from prison. As for Bailey ... he was disbarred in 2001 and is reportedly broke.

So ... no way the Juice will ask for legal advice or money, right?

Exclusive Details

It took a year, but 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Kelly Dodd was finally able to unload her remodeled Newport Beach home after cutting the price ... and it just so happens she's also ready to cut things off with her estranged husband, Michael.

The 4 bedroom, 4 bath oceanside home sold for $5 million. It was originally listed for $6.25 million last summer.

Kelly and Michael tried to give their marriage another try after she filed for divorce in 2012. Along the way they flipped this home, but the marriage didn't survive.

We're told Kelly's going through with the divorce finally. She's renting a place in Newport for the time being and is ready to date again.

Wu-Tang's Raekwon Sign Kaepernick to Replace Rodgers

10/17/2017 7:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Colin Kaepernick ain't exactly hurtin' for cash, but the Packers should absolutely show him the money -- so says Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon

We got the huge Packers fan at LAX ... and asked him about the prospect of Kaep replacing Rodgers while the star QB heals up.

"That'd be dope," Raekwon told TMZ Sports. "Kaepernick can hold the fort down ... as a starter."

The emcee gets why Kaep hasn't been picked up yet -- "it's a serious situation for the NFL" -- but at the same time, says he's got mad respect for his movement.

Whether he gets paid or not, Raekwon told us Kaep should be good -- 'cause he's made PLENTY of money playin' for the 49ers.

$43.4 MILLION, reportedly ... to be exact.

Harvey Weinstein I'm Gonna Keep Making Movies With Or Without You, Bro

10/17/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein is not giving up -- not even close -- he vows he'll continue making movies, whether it's with The Weinstein Co. or someplace else.

Weinstein's showdown with TWC is set for Tuesday morning in NYC, where he will make his case by speakerphone that he was illegally fired and has a right to retake the reins. His lawyer, Patty Glaser, will be in the Board of Directors meeting to make the case.

Our Weinstein sources say he knows he's "momentarily toxic" but thinks with a little time, writers and actors will seek him out again because of his track record. He believes -- and probably rightly so -- that TWC exists because of him. He believes he can go back and produce movies, or he can just as easily do it somewhere else.

As one source put it, "Harvey's like Judge Judy. She can do her show for CBS, but if she wanted to go to NBC she can do it because it's all about her."

Harvey may not be able to make his case Tuesday. There are rumblings the Board may fire Weinstein as the first order of business, then disconnect the speakerphone and throw Patty Glaser out of the meeting. If that happens, our Weinstein sources say they will 100% go either to arbitration or court.  

'The New Castle' in Malibu Most Expensive Crib Lives Up to its Name ... Going for $85M!!!

10/17/2017 5:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's a mansion in Malibu called The New Castle, which is certainly fit for a king both in its digs ... and its price. 

The modern 2-property mansion -- designed by Scott Gillen -- has just hit the market for a staggering $85 million ... which might sound like a lot -- 'cause it is -- but we'd say it's totally worth it when you take a look around ... if you can shell out the dough.

The property comes with a main house that's got 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, a guest house with 2 beds and 2.5 baths -- plus a 75-foot infinity pool and a 2-story waterfall ... all of which can be seen from the private screening/gaming room inside. 

It's also got a $1 million custom teak wine and cigar room, complete with 440 bottles of Napa's finest nectar ... not to mention $1.5 million worth of art scattered throughout. 

Oh, and you're also looking over the Pacific from the Castle ... in case that wasn't obvious.

Branden Williams of Hilton & Hyland and Brittany Monforte & Sandro Dazzan of Coldwell Banker have the listing.

Elvis Presley Take Your Shot at the King's Gun ... If Ya Got $95k!!!

10/17/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of Elvis Presley's beloved pieces -- a Smith & Wesson -- can be yours, but it's gonna take a king's ransom to get it! See what we did there? 

Elvis' .38 caliber Smith & Wesson Chief Special revolver is now for sale through Moments in Time -- and it's going for a whopping $95,000 ... first come, first served.

The gun was originally purchased by The King himself at a Memphis gun shop in 1971 ... where the paperwork shows he also bought 5 other revolvers the same day. Elvis was a low-key gun nut, who often unloaded on his TVs.   

Elvis had this particular firearm engraved with his T.C.B. lighting bolt logo -- which stood for Taking Care of Business in a flash. 

We're told he eventually gifted the gun to his bodyguard, but it's unclear if Elvis ever used it. Either way, folks ... it's now or never! Yup, we did it again. 

Denise Richards Here, Take A Million Bucks Off My House!

10/16/2017 10:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Denise Richards is taking extreme action in trying to unload her Hidden Hills home ... she's slashed the asking price by almost $1.3 MILLION.

Richards put the home on the market for $7.29 million over a year ago, but no takers. The ranch-style 6 bedroom, 8 bath home is still for sale ... for the reduced price of $5.995 mil.

The 8,200 square foot home has been extensively remodeled. It's also got some unique features ... a lagoon pool with a waterfall and a grotto, a pizza oven, wine cellar with tasting room and custom-built dog kennel/hotel for dog lovers.

Denise will still pocket a pretty penny. She bought the home in 2007 for way less ... $4.395 million.

Boosie Bro Off the Hook For Alleged Bank Siphoning

10/16/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boosie's brother is dodging serious potential jail time for allegedly stealing more than $300k from his famous sibling, but the big question ... WHY??

The D.A. in charge of Taquari Hatch's case has refused to file charges against him -- despite cops busting him for allegedly siphoning $361,000 from Boosie's account.

We broke the story ... Taquari was booked for identity theft and fraud charges after cops claimed he posed as Boosie to authorize multiple wire transfers. Taquari had always maintained he was innocent ... and it now seems the D.A. agrees -- or at least feels the evidence wasn't strong enough.

We've reached out to the D.A.'s office for clarification on why Taquari is walking away scot-free ... so far, no word back.

Jason Derulo Burglary Employee Slept While Safe Smashed And $680k Got Jacked

10/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo's home burglary is looking less like a random crime and more like the perps had some help ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspected burglars pried a door open to get into Derulo's pad last month, and made a beeline for his safe. We're told they beat the crap out of it, got it open and escaped -- all while one of JD's employees slept in the house.

Cops say about $600k in jewelry and about $80k in cash were taken. Now, to be fair, we're told Rip Van Winkle -- aka the employee -- was dozing pretty far away from the smashed safe. Jason's got a big crib.

Still, we're told cops suspect an inside job.
