JonBenet Ramsey Brother to File Defamation Suit Against CBS

9/21/2016 8:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0921-jonbenet-ramsey-doc-cbsCBS is about to be sued by JonBenet Ramsey's older brother, two days after the network aired a documentary in which experts concluded the brother killed her.

Burke Ramsey's lawyer, L. Lin Wood, tells TMZ, "You damn betcha I'm gonna sue CBS, the phony experts and everyone else that put this thing together."

The documentary concludes Burke, then 9, killed his little sister by hitting her on the head with a heavy flashlight, while John and Patsy Ramsey covered up the kill to protect him.

The theory flies in the face of autopsy findings, which concluded JonBenet died from "asphyxia strangulation" associated with head trauma. There were scores of theories ... the most prominent being someone struck the 6-year-old with a flashlight and one of the parents used a garrote to finish her off. The theory -- the parents allegedly killed JonBenet to then make it seem that an intruder murdered her.

The theory was never pursued by prosecutors.

CBS tells TMZ, the network "stands by the broadcast and will do so in court."

If it goes to court this could become a de facto murder trial.

Julian Edelman Still in Adriana's Starting Lineup After Seacrest Date

9/21/2016 8:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0921-edleman-lima-getty-01Adriana Lima's still going strong with New England Patriots star Julian Edelman ... who doesn't seem the least bit phased by her "date" with Ryan Seacrest.

Sources close to the Pat and the supermodel tell us EdeLima is still very much a thing. In fact ... the Victoria's Secret Angel was in Boston visiting the NFL star just a couple weeks ago. We're told she hung out with him and his friends, which is always a big deal. 

We're told the visit was one week before Adriana was seen at an NYC restaurant with Seacrest, but Julian's not the jealous type ... and he believes she's just friends with the host. 

Julian's focused on a different kinda victory right now -- he's busy prepping to be the backup QB for Thursday's game against the Texans.

Lena Headey to Ex-Husband You Signed Off On Moving Our Kid to the U.K.

9/21/2016 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920_Peter-Loughran_lena_headey_tmz_gettyLena Headey's ex-husband is pissed she moved to the U.K. with their son -- but she's calling BS because she says they had a clear understanding about the move across the pond.

Headey's lawyer, Joy Stanley, tells TMZ ... Peter Loughran agreed with the "Game of Thrones" star they'd both move to the U.K. during the summer, with their child, and continue to have joint legal custody.

Lena's team says Loughran ended up staying in the U.S., and is now claiming he never agreed to leave. But Stanley tells us, "Ms. Headey has not taken the parties' child against any custody arrangement."

Sources close to Headey tell us she has a great family support system in the U.K., and that's the only reason for the move.  

Brad Pitt Get Ready, Angelina I'm Fighting for Joint Custody

9/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-getty-05Angelina Jolie isn't going to get her way when it comes to custody ... at least if Brad Pitt has anything to say about it, because TMZ has learned he'll fight and fight hard for joint physical custody of their 6 kids.

Sources connected with Brad tell us, Angelina is dreaming if she thinks she can take his kids away from him. We broke the story, Angelina wants sole physical custody of the children ... she wants a judge to give him visitation, but that's it.

Our sources tell us Brad says, "There's no chance that's going to happen." Pitt wants joint custody ... he doesn't want to interfere with Angelina's ability to be a co-parent, but he won't allow her to thwart him.  

This now promises to become the flash point in the divorce and it has the potential to become a fierce legal battle.

That said, our Brad sources say he's quick to add Angelina's a "great mother" and doesn't want to hurt her in the divorce. The sources say Brad and Angelina haven't gotten along for months and have had frank talks about divorce several times, so this wasn't a shock. Nevertheless, he's still devastated.

As we reported, our Angelina sources claim Brad heavily indulges in weed and alcohol and that, combined with what she claims is an anger problem, poses a danger to their kids.

Our Brad sources insist ... he's never put his kids in danger ... ever.

'Modern Family' Creator Steve Levitan Estranged Wife Accuses Him of Threatening WWIII Shut Down by Judge

9/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_steve_levitan_getty
"Modern Family" creator Steve Levitan has a new idea for a functional modern family ... lose the wife who drags him to court for daring to visit his daughter.

Levitan -- who grosses $2.4 million a month -- is in the throes of a super nasty divorce in which his wife has now twice tried, unsuccessfully, to keep him away from the family home.

The latest blowup occurred the day before the Emmys. Steve invited his daughter, Hannah, to come home from college for the weekend so he could take her to the awards ceremony. Hannah was staying at the family home with her mom, Krista, when Steve drove up to take her for a drink.

Steve says he was on a public sidewalk when Hannah came up to hug him. Krista was out of town, but a burly security guard was ready to pounce. The guard got out of a car, walked up to Steve and said, "Can I help you with something." Steve simply responded, "No."

But Steve was pissed, saying in legal docs he felt like he was being treated like a criminal.

Krista ran to court Tuesday, asking a judge for a restraining order ... keeping him a hundred yards from the family home. She made all sorts of allegations, including aggressive courtroom conduct. She said he tried to intimidate her in the courthouse cafeteria by staring her down.

She also says he assaulted her back in May at their son's volleyball awards ceremony by grabbing her by the arms and saying, "Get ready for World War III."

The judge denied her request for a restraining order. This is the second time Krista's been shut down in court for a restraining order.

Money ... it doesn't buy happiness.

Garry Shandling Generous with Sean Penn ... In Life and Death

9/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-gary-shandling-charities-TMZ-01Garry Shandling was so moved by Sean Penn's passion for the people of Haiti, he made sure the actor's charity got a chunk of his fortune when he died.

TMZ's obtained a copy of the late comedian's will and he's giving away some of his fortune to Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization. Garry was a longtime supporter of Penn's charity, attending fundraisers and making countless contributions.

Garry donated a whopping $10k just to back a Haitian runner in the NYC Marathon a couple years ago -- so you've gotta figure he left way north of that to Penn's group.

It's unclear how much he left when he died from a heart attack in March. That detail is held in Shandling's private trust.

According to the will, he also left dough for the University of California's school system -- even though he attended University of Arizona -- the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, as well as 11 relatives.
