La Toya Jackson

I Believe That's Michael in the Clouds!!!

6/27/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

La Toya Jackson is a believer, and seems to think the eerie image of Michael Jackson in the middle of a thunder storm is the real deal.

We got La Toya and ex-fiance Jeffré Phillips were leaving Macau restaurant in Hollywood -- which they raved about -- when our photog showed M.J.'s older sis the pic.

La Toya doesn't think it's a mind trick at all.

As for her and her ex-fiance, they're together-ish, but they seem to have different views on the relationship.

EXCLUSIVE

0626-arenas-govan-tmz-01Gilbert Arenas' ex demanded an emergency restraining order against him this week ... claiming he threatened her life ... but the judge shot her down ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

It's no secret Gilbert and Laura Govan -- the mother of his 4 kids -- hate each other's guts. Arenas recently smashed the car she drives with a cinder block after she allegedly threw his computer in the pool.

Now, sources tell us ... Govan went to court this week telling the judge Gilbert threatened her on Monday -- allegedly saying, "I want you dead or in jail or broke."

Arenas obviously denied threatening her ... and the judge ultimately ruled there wasn't enough evidence to warrant an emergency restraining order.

After the hearing, Arenas gloated on social media ... saying, "Another victory in court ... I'm not the one to keep score but ur 0-16."

The Situation

Help!! My Legal Eagle Is ...

Flying the Coop

EXCLUSIVE

0626-mike-the-situation-tmz-01The Situation's lawyer has the same problem as the US government … they both say he ain't paying 'em -- which leaves Sitch even further up you-know-what creek without a paddle. 

Richard Sapinski has been representing Mike Sorrentino in his federal tax evasion case, but just pulled out because he says the extremely well-tanned one wasn't holding up his end of the bargain when it comes to compensation.

Sapinski, one of the top defense lawyers in the country, filed docs informing the court he wants off the case. Not the kinda thing you wanna hear when you're accused of $8.9 million worth of tax fraud, like the Situation is.

We reached out to Sitch to find out who's on deck to rep him, but no response yet.

Jimmy Fallon

I Nearly Ripped

My Finger Off

0626-jimmy-fallon-hand-injury-TWITTER-01

Jimmy Fallon and his single working hand are looking for a little sympathy -- he just gave us a first look at the injury, and an explanation for what happened early Friday morning.

Jimmy's left hand is heavily bandaged and elevated in the pic he posted from his hospital bed. He says his ring got caught on the edge of a table when he tripped and fell at home -- and he damn near ripped a finger clean off his hand.

At least the 'Tonight Show' host can still count on his right hand for important things.

Like tweeting ... and other stuff.

0626-gay-wedding-planning-biz-4The Supreme Court's historic ruling on same-sex marriage means one thing -- gay wedding planners can finally cash in, and one of 'em has hauled in more than a quarter mil just today.

With more than 12,000 copies sold online just today, Blackmon's raked in -- cha-ching, cha-ching -- about $327,500 in revenue!!

Straight weddings ... you just got slayed.

Bill Cosby

Insurance Co. Wants Off the Hook ...

If Sexual Assault Allegations Stick

6/26/2015 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-bill-cosby-tmz-01Bill Cosby is being sued by a company that fears it might be on the hook if the comedian defamed 3 of his accusers by calling their claims BS.  

Cosby's homeowners insurance company has filed a lawsuit claiming it has absolutely no duty to pay a judgment stemming from the sexual assault allegations and denials. Many policies cover various misdeeds of the homeowners, but AIG Property Casualty Company says it is not responsible for claims arising out of sexual misconduct.

AIG not only wants to block Cosby, it has also named 3 accusers -- Tamara Green, Therese Serignese and Linda Traitz as defendants. All 3 claim Cosby not only molested them but defamed them when he called them liars.

AIG wants a judge to tell them all ... don't even try to collect a judgment from the company.

Wyclef Jean

Fires Trump As a Friend ...

F**k Him for Mexico Rant

6/26/2015 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Wyclef Jean ripped his old pal Donald Trump for attacking Mexican immigrants ... by dropping an f-bomb on him during a concert.

The ex-Fugees rapper was in Pomona, CA Thursday night when he went off on Trump ... referencing the Presidential nominee's comment that most Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. Clef's attack was short, sweet, and very telling. 

He had appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice" ... doing a guest spot in the boardroom once, and also played a corporate gig for Trump.

But watch this vid -- there'll be one less holiday card for both men to send this year.
