Kourtney's a LIAR!
I Didn't Hide Mold
8/19/2014 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Keyshawn Johnson is enraged that Kourtney Kardashian is suggesting he defrauded her by selling her a mold-infested house.
Sources close to Keyshawn tell us he's scoffing at Kourtney's intimation he painted over dangerous black mold so it would go undetected. In fact ... Keyshawn insists he never painted a single wall during the 2 1/2 years he lived in the Calabasas mansion.
Our sources say ... Keyshawn believes the mold developed AFTER the sale when a bathroom pipe sprung a leak in the wall. Keyshawn says someone in the Kardashian klan actually reached out to Keyshawn asking if the house was still under warranty so they wouldn't have to pay for the repair.
Keyshawn is incredulous because he has 2 kids who lived in the house until the day before it was sold ... and the kids mostly slept in the master, where mold was found. He says he would never knowingly expose his kids to mold.
He also says the Kardashians have been a pain in the ass ... calling at least 10 times after the sale to ask about this and that.
11:21 A.M. PDT -- Keyshawn just had his lawyer give us this statement: "There was no water damage to the house I sold to Ms. Kardashian. It is a new home that I built less than 10 years ago. It never had any water or mold problems. Prior to sale, the house was thoroughly inspected by excellent, experienced inspectors that they hired. I don't know what has transpired since they moved into the house but I wish them well."
Jennifer Lopez, Casper Smart

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart were back together Monday ... and when she spotted the photog she ducked for cover -- which totally means they're banging!
We think it's JLo's car ... it's definitely not his, although he's driving.
JLo and Casper broke up in June after dating 2 1/2 years. There were reports Smart cheated on JLo with a transsexual, but he denied it and threatened to sue.
As we reported ... the breakup was amicable and they parted as friends. Now it appears there may be benefits to the friendship.

Buying a Mold-Infested House!
8/19/2014 8:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kourtney Kardashian is crying cover-up ... claiming the house she bought from Keyshawn Johnson is infested with dangerous mold that was masked by a coat of paint ... sending her family fleeing for their safety.
We're told Kourtney's decorator found the mold when he installed some fixtures.
Kourtney and the kids checked into the Montage hotel in Bev Hills Monday. The photo agency didn't get Scott Disick ... but we're told he arrived later. The family just returned from the Hamptons and decided it was too dangerous to move back into the house -- especially since Kourtney is pregnant.
Sources connected with Kourtney say she's on the attack ... ready to sue anyone who's responsible. She believes the fresh paint over what she claims is mold is the smoking gun.
We've made multiple calls to Keyshawn ... but haven't heard back.

Ask Me About Me ... Please
8/19/2014 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
10:27 A.M. PDT -- We're told Brody will attend the opening ... but will no longer give 1-on-1 interviews.
Brody Jenner needs to get a grip ... he's courting the media to interview him and only one thing is off limits ... the thing people care about.
Brody's promoting the opening of a Dave & Buster's in Hollywood ... and is courting the media for 1-on-1 interviews ... but we're told any talk about the Kardashians/Jenners is out of bounds.
Why he skipped Kim's wedding? ... Next question.
Why he hung Bruce out to dry on the PCH? ... Nice try.
His love/hate relationship with Kris? ... Uhhh, no.
Oh, you can ask him about the 7 "Keeping Up The Kardashians" episodes on which he appeared ... just avoid bringing up Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall or Kris. You know, pretty much anybody else on the show whose name begins with "K."
Now the list of what's left to talk about that's interesting.

8/19/2014 5:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
John McCain is a DANCING MACHINE -- no seriously, he's like a fully functioning cyberdyne robot ... and this weekend he busted out his mechanical dance moves in front of Jamie Foxx at a party in the Hamptons.
With The Roots providing the beat, the Arizona senator went into full "Zoolander" pop-and-lock battle mode on stage during a benefit at Ron Perelman’s East Hampton estate.
Jamie Foxx tried to mimic McCain's moves -- but the guy just couldn't keep up.
Apparently, McCain followed NJ Gov. Chris Christie ... who also showed off some moves -- but everyone seems to agree, McCain blew the guy out of the water.

Chicago Can Be Cold
8/19/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dwyane Wade reportedly makes around $30 million a year -- his estimated worth is approximately $100 mil -- which makes it pretty shocking his $1.2 million Chicago pad is in foreclosure.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ Sports -- Wade stopped making payments on the $225K mortgage ... the docs don't say how much he's behind.
The house is located in South Holland, a Chicago suburb. It's massive -- 7,800 square feet, 6 bedrooms and a basketball court on 3 acres.
Dwyane and then wife Siohvaughn lived in the house with their 2 kids until he filed for divorce in 2007. The divorce was extremely bitter ... he ended up getting custody. She lives in the house alone.
Dwyane's attorney tells TMZ ... the basketball star finally reached a financial settlement with his ex-wife last year, and in addition to getting a huge payout, she got the home and assumed the mortgage payments. The attorney says Siohvaughn just stopped paying.
The lawyer adds Dwyane has no further responsibility, but it seems likely he signed the mortgage papers in the first place so, as they say, tell it to the bank.
The bank sent the foreclosure notice August 11.
