Treasury Secty's Wife Louise Linton Rhymes with Rich

8/22/2017 6:55 AM PDT

She may be the most awful person in Washington, D.C., and there's fierce competition for the title.

Louise Linton, the actress/wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, went full-on Marie Antoinette, essentially telling people who don't dress as fabulously as her that they're pathetic losers.

Linton and Mnuchin were on an Air Force jet Monday, and when they landed they were photographed getting off the plane. She put the pic on Instagram with the caption that read in part, "#rolandmouret pants #tomford sunnies #hermesscarf #valentinorockstudheels #valentino."

Some people went nuts on her -- appropriately -- and some of her retorts are classic and classless ... "Adorable ... I'm pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day 'trip' than you did. You're adorably out of touch ... Your life looks cute."

She deleted the post, but what a you-know-what.

Scooter Braun Democrats Push Him To Run for Cali Governor

8/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scooter Braun will be running for Governor of California ... if some very powerful CA democrats have their way.

We've learned a number of Democratic fundraisers and political operatives in the state have approached Braun, because they believe, as one source put it, the current candidates -- Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and former L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa are flawed.

Braun, who manages Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Usher and Kanye, has immersed himself in the Democratic political system over the last year ... doing fundraising for Hillary Clinton.

We're told there was something of a groundswell -- Scooter for Governor -- after he gave an emotional speech at Ariana Grande's Manchester concert to raise money for the victims of the terror attack.

No word on whether Scooter is seriously considering a run, or whether he'll change his name if he does ... but there's definitely interest from the Democratic Party.

Kristen Stewart, Stella Maxwell Lawyer Up in Nude Photo Hack

8/22/2017 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell have lawyered up, demanding that several websites take down nude photos of them that were illegally hacked.

Kristen's lawyer, Scott Whitehead, fired off a letter challenging the websites that have plastered pics of Kristen and Stella, along with pics of Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn, Miley Cyrus, and Katharine McPhee.

The pics in question show Stella in the bathroom, taking a selfie with Kristen posing naked behind her.

Whitehead claims posting the pics is a flagrant violation of copyright laws ... i.e., Kristen and Stella own their images and no one can use them without permission.

The letter follows a similar demand by Tiger Woods' lawyer. As we reported, the hacker got hold of nude selfies of Lindsey Vonn and in the set there was a naked pic of Tiger that he sent while he was dating her.

As of this post the pics are still posted.

Lindsey Vonn Nude Photo Hack 'Despicable Invasion of Privacy'

8/22/2017 5:53 AM PDT
Breaking News

Lindsey Vonn is furious at whoever hacked her phone and leaked private nude photos online -- calling the actions "despicable" and vowing legal revenge against the scumbag who did it.

As we previously reported, the hacker not only found personal pics of Vonn, but also leaked an old private pic of her ex-boyfriend, Tiger Woods. He has also lawyered up and is going after all parties involved.

"It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos," a rep for Vonn told The Big Lead.

"Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests."

"She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law."

Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell were also victimized by the hacker.

Selena Gomez & The Weeknd Hangin' On for Dear Life!!!

8/22/2017 7:40 AM PDT

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are not only inseparable ... they're attached.

The couple squeezed in some grocery shopping Monday in L.A. and squeezed each other. They hit up a local organic market in the middle of the day.

The couple began dating right before Abel kicked off his huge world tour on the heels of his album, "Starboy," in January. He's on a break right now before the second leg begins in September and Selena's clearly got a tight grasp ... still.

Justin's clearly in her rear view.

Bill Cosby Your Honor, Meet My New Lawyer He's the Bomb

8/22/2017 7:33 AM PDT

7:50 AM PT -- The judge has granted their request and agreed to push the start date of the new trial. It is now loosely scheduled for mid-March or early April, but no firm date has been decided.

Bill Cosby's rejiggered legal team appeared in court for the first time Tuesday, led by the legendary criminal defense lawyer who beat the rap on behalf of Michael Jackson.

Attorneys Tom Mesereau, Kathleen Bliss and Sam Silver led the way as Cosby and his P.R. guy, Andrew Wyatt, showed up, asking a judge to push the November trial date back so Mesereau and his team could be fully prepared. 

The judge has yet to rule on the request.

Mesereau has been critical of prosecutors who almost instantly decided to retry the case after a mistrial was declared the first time around. Mesereau called the retrial a "waste of time."

Desiigner sends a big thank-you to Tommy Lee for opening the door to sex 35,000 feet in the air.

It seems Desiigner has already been inducted into the Mile High Club.

Ray J, Princess Love Dog Almost Dies ... Locked in a Closet

8/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J and Princess Love's dog almost died after being left in a closet for days without food or water ... and they think the pooch was accidentally left there by a construction worker. 

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Ray and PL took a trip recently to celebrate their anniversary/her bday -- when they returned ... they found one of their Maltese dogs unconscious in the closet.

We're told Ray J and Princess are renovating their home, and construction crews were there when they were away. They say one of the workers told them they put Coco in the closet while they were doing work in the room, and just forgot to let her out.

RJ and PL say when they found Coco she was having seizures. They rushed her to the vet, where she was treated for 4 days. They shelled out more than $5k in vet bills.

We're told Coco suffered permanent organ damage and has to undergo kidney treatment for the rest of her life. Ray and Princess are considering their next move.

RJ and PL have sent the construction company the bill, but they say that's only part of what they're out.

Mystikal Rape Accuser Said It Never Happened Alleged Accomplice Claims

8/22/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman wanted by cops for allegedly being an accessory to rape involving Mystikal says she can prove the alleged victim wasn't sexually assaulted by the rapper. 

Tenichia Wafford is wanted because cops say she tried to strong-arm the alleged victim into dropping charges that Mystikal and another man raped her in October of last year in Louisiana.

Tenichia admits she called the woman, but only because they were friends, and that's when the alleged victim told her there was no rape. It's unclear if Tenichia is saying the alleged victim stated there was sexual contact with consent or no sexual contact at all. Tenichia says she recorded her conversation with the alleged victim.

Tenichia is still on the run. It's unclear why she doesn't go to the cops and try and explain things.

As we reported ... Mystikal turned himself in and was booked for first degree rape.
