is NOT banging rich dudes for money ... despite reports she's a highly paid escort -- so says her father.Michael Lohan
is quoted in the reports in question, saying Lindsay is "getting paid to date rich men." According to the reports, these dates last for several days and the men shower her with lavish gifts like jewelry.
One alleged client is the third in line for the throne of Brunei, who allegedly paid Lindsay $100,000 to celebrate New Year's with him in London.
But Michael insists he was misquoted -- telling TMZ, "By absolutely NO MEANS did I ever make such a statement ... EVER!"
He adds, "Sure, Lindsay and [other celebs] make personal appearances and get paid for it! Sure, she and they get paid to go to birthday parties and other occasions! But for sex? Are you kidding me? I would never say that because she would NEVER do that and it NEVER happened!"
sent a belated "thank you" card and flowers to casa de Charlie Sheen
for that $100k check he gave her
-- this just days after he called her out for being ungrateful.
You'll recall ... Charlie did an interview this week and put LiLo's manners on blast, claiming the actress never actually thanked him for the money he gave her. Not a text, not a phone call ... nothing.
Now sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... LiLo didn't mean to be rude and the reason she never got around to thanking Charlie personally is because her phone broke and she lost all her contacts -- including the actor's number.
Besides that, we're told Lindsay got distracted trying to deal with her slew of legal problems -- like getting arrested
in NYC and the new criminal charges filed
stemming from her PCH crash -- and she simply lost track of time.
But she made up for it ... we're told LiLo saw Charlie's comments and immediately fired off a "thank you" letter and a bouquet of flowers to his house ... as both an apology and show of gratitude.
Usually the best way to thank Charlie is with hookers, but flowers are nice too.
's financial situation is so dire, she is struggling each month to pay the rent on her Beverly Hills mansion ... TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, Lindsay has been scraping together the money to pay her $8,000 rent. We're told Lindsay signed the lease on the home back in February ... when her career was on the upswing and the money seemed to be rolling in.
But according to our sources, when Lindsay's finances took a turn for the worse (like when the IRS seized her bank accounts
) she began doing whatever she could to make rent each month, often hitting up friends for money.
Lindsay tried to get out of the lease and move out early, but we're told the owners of the home told LiLo the penalty for breaking the lease was MASSIVE.
So Lindsay is making it work until the lease is over in February and LiLo is telling friends she'll then look for a place in New York.
Maybe Dina needs a roommate.
As if she weren't royally screwed enough ... Lindsay Lohan
's tax problems have become so extreme ... the IRS has seized ALL of her bank accounts in order to repay her massive outstanding debt.
As we reported, Uncle Sam has filed tax liens against Lindsay for the years 2009 and 2010 -- claiming she owes $233,904 in unpaid federal taxes.
Charlie Sheen generously paid Lindsay $100,000 to help alleviate Lindsay's 2009 tax problem -- but we're told Charlie's check barely scratched the surface ... because Lindsay also owes money for 2011.
The IRS has given Lindsay ample time to pay up -- but the Man's tired of waiting ... so we're told the IRS has seized ALL her bank accounts in order to settle her debt.
Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, she's in full-on panic mode about her financial situation, and is desperately trying to make some cash to get out of the red.
Now we know why Kelsey Grammer
wants to move out of the Bev Hills (adjacent) home he just bought and move into the one he bought with Camille Grammer
-- he's short on cash.
TMZ broke the story ... Camille is fighting mad that Kelsey wants to move into their 10,000 square foot mansion that they've been trying in vain to sell.
In court docs, obtained by TMZ, Kelsey says his show, "Boss," got cancelled so he doesn't want to carry 2 homes in the same area, both of which have big mortgages. Kelsey says he can rent out his recently-purchased home for $30k a month, so he wants to do that and move into the 10,000 square foot estate he bought with Camille.
Camille is pissed because she's paying half the mortgage and other expenses -- and thinks it will be harder to sell if Kelsey, Kayte and their kid move in. BTW, the total carrying cost for the estate is $48,130 a month.
Kelsey counters in his declaration .... Camille lives in their Malibu home and he bears half the costs (total $15,000 a month), so it's only fair that he can move into their Bev Hills home.
The judge rejected Camille's request to bar Kelsey from the home but set a hearing for next month.
By the way, in the docs, Camille reveals that she gets $41,000 a month in spousal and child support.
Ex-NFL star Warren Sapp
is desperate to lower his child support payments ... even though he struck a deal with one of his baby mamas to NEVER change the amount -- of course, that was before he went broke.
Sapp filed legal docs in Florida, requesting his child support to Angela Sanders
be decreased from $2,500 per month ... because he's fallen on hard financial times since retiring from the NFL, a.k.a. he went bankrupt
Problem is, back in 2001 -- when Sapp was a Tampa Bay Buccaneers
cash-making superstar -- he and Sanders added a clause to their child support agreement that said ... neither party could "seek modification" based on changes in income.
Presumably, Sapp was trying to protect his millions.
Sanders tells TMZ she's "frustrated" by Sapp's request ... because she was fine sticking to the $2,500 a month while his pockets were getting fatter -- so it's unfair for him to lower it now.
According to the docs, Sapp is also trying to modify child-support payments for his 4 other baby mamas.
A judge has yet to rule.
More legal trouble for Katt Williams
-- the comic has just been sued for $5 million after allegedly socking his female assistant .... and causing her permanent injuries.Melissa Ishage
filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming she'd been working as Katt's personal assistant -- but on October 6th, things suddenly went sour at Katt's house ... when Katt attacked her, punching her and causing her "serious and permanent injuries."
Melissa doesn't explain why Katt flew into a rage -- but claims she had to go to the hospital as a result of the beatdown ... and now she wants at least $5 million from Katt to call it even.
Melissa's attorney tells us, his client claims Katt struck her in the head and knocked her to the ground. The lawyer says police were called to the scene but no one was arrested. The incident is currently under investigation.
Calls to Katt's rep were not returned.
Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio
is sick and tired of supporting her estranged husband -- and has now filed docs asking a judge to ORDER him to get off his lazy ass and find a job ... TMZ has learned.
Paulina's husband Nicolas Vallejo-Nagera filed for divorce earlier this year and requested alimony -- but Rubio now says that's BS, claiming Nick is "perfectly capable of self-support" and should be forced to find a job to pay his own damn bills.
Paulina -- who was just sued
this week for allegedly beating her assistant -- insists there's no excuse for Nicolas' laziness, claiming he is "a young, bi-lingual, highly intelligent and educated man, with degrees in business, and is physically active and healthy."
She adds, "He has had his own businesses in the past; however, he has not sought gainful employment since he began living with his wife."
Paulina wants a judge to order Nicolas to find a job, as well as pay Paulina's attorneys' fees. BTW, the divorce is still in play and the judge has not ordered Paulina to pay any support -- yet -- but she wants to nip this one in the bud.
Calls to Nicolas were not returned.
was telling the truth when she said her mom was on the verge of losing her house ...and Dina Lohan
is not out of the woods yet ... TMZ has learned.
According to court docs obtained by TMZ ... JPMorgan Chase Bank filed documents in 2010 to foreclose on Dina's Long Island home because she had fallen behind on payments.
Now here's where it gets interesting ...The bank and Dina cut some sort of deal in which mama Lohan agreed to a new payment agreement that would prevent her home from going on the auction block.
Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... Dina didn't ante up on her own -- she got money from Lindsay to make the payments.
We're told Lindsay made payments that helped Dina dig out of the hole, but recently she fell behind again and Lindsay had to give her MORE bailout money -- $40,000. And that's the 40 grand that Lindsay and her mom were arguing over when things erupted in the limo early Wednesday.
One final thing. We're told Dina withdrew lots of other money from the Bank of Lindsay, including money to help pay for her kid brother's tuition.
Broke ass NFL legend Warren Sapp
has a CHANCE to buy back some of the items he lost in his bankruptcy case -- including jewelry and a surf board -- but he still can't get his shoes back ...TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... Sapp filed for Chapter 7 earlier this year after claiming he was millions of dollars in debt. He was forced to hand over nearly all of his possessions to a trustee, who's been tasked with selling the items to pay off Sapp's creditors.
But now, according to new legal docs filed in the bankruptcy case, Sapp has struck a deal with the trustee -- which will allow him to buy back a bunch of his old belongings ... including furniture, jewelry, a storage container worth of crap and the rights to his missing 2002 Super Bowl ring (if it ever turns up).
All Sapp has to do is get a judge to sign off on the arrangement -- and pony up $69,284.58 in one lump sum.
Fortunately for shoe freaks, the trustee is NOT giving Sapp the chance to buy back his massive Air Jordan collection ... estimated to be worth $50k. As of now, the shoes are still on track to be sold.
After several failed attempts to put a roof over her head -- Octomom
is FINALLY moving her brood into a new house ... and TMZ has the pics to prove it.
TMZ obtained photos of Octo taken Sunday -- packing up all her crap and hauling her 14 kids to a new 5,000-square-foot crib in Palmdale, CA ... since the one she's living in was foreclosed on
From the pics it's clear Octo hasn't cleaned house for awhile ... you can see a giant dumpster full of old toys, chairs, mattresses and random stuff she no longer wants.
TMZ broke the story ... Octo was supposed to move into a DIFFERENT house in Palmdale, and pulled out
at the last minute, because she thought the owner was shady. Prior to that, she had been REJECTED
by a slew of landlords.
But millionth time's a charm and sources tell us ... Octo made a sweet deal with this owner -- snagging the property for a cool $2500 / month and her first payment isn't due 'til April.
