What are the chances?!

A Florida judge named Mindy Glazer took to her courtroom Wednesday when an assigned case caught her by surprise: it as the burglary case of a man named Arthur Booth.

As it turned out, Judge Glazer had gone to middle school with Booth, and grew up with him, playing sports and hanging out long ago.

Diddy Will NOT Be Facing Charges For His UCLA Football Brawl After All!

He must have a guardian angel looking over him!

Despite being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon last week after his fight with a UCLA football coach, Diddy will NOT be facing any charges after all!

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office decided on Thursday that even though the 45-year-old rapper threw a kettlebell at his son Justin Combs' assistant coach, since no one was actually hurt, there would be no legal action taken.

Justin is a defensive back on the Division I team and was very vocal about supporting his father throughout the ordeal, so it should be interesting to see how he interacts with his administrators now that the case has been dropped.

Looking back on the week Diddy's had, he must have been pretty sure this whole thing was going to clear itself up, because he didn't seemed phased in the slightest during his Bad Boy tribute at the BET Awards on Sunday!

Do U think Diddy should have gotten off scot-free??

| Filed under: MTVLegal MattersCeleb KidzReality TVTeen Mom

Jenelle Evans says getting back custody of her first-born son isn't 'priority number one' right now.

Jenelle Evans loves her son Jace.

But, she says she's not at a place in her life right now where she can take back custody of her five-year-old from her mom Barbara.

A few years ago, the Teen Mom 2 cast member gave up Jace so he could be raised by her mother, mostly because she had experienced some trouble with the law.

The MTV star struggled with even more police problems recently, and is trying to get herself back on track.

But she's revealed she's not quite there yet, saying:

sherri shepherd child support ruling

Oh no!

It's been three months since Sherri Shepherd was named the legal mother to her ex Lamar Sally's son — who was born via surrogacy with an egg donor.

However, on Thursday, it was revealed that the former View host finally settled her dramatic divorce and the debate over the financial responsibility of baby Lamar Sally Jr.

It's reported that the funny lady will have to shell out $4,100 per month in child support for her 10-month-old son until the child turns 13-years-old — where the stipend will increase to $4,600. Whoa!

This ruling brings this custody courtroom circus to a close.

Previously, the 48-year-old had distanced herself from the baby boy when she claimed that Lamar was using the child to cash in for a payday.

How sad.

However, it's said the Miz Shepherd is still considering to press fraud charges against her ex-husband. In fact, if Sherri wins her claim she will no longer be entitled to pay child support!

Hmm, very inneresting.

After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage last week, one Montana man became inspired to apply for a marriage license — so he can legally marry his second wife!

On Tuesday, Nathan Collier and his wives Victoria and Christine applied at the Yellowstone County Courthouse in hopes of legitimizing their polygamous marriage!

All 50 states outlaw holding multiple marriage licenses, but in light of recent constitutional changes, Collier declares he will plan to sue if their application is denied! He said:

"It's about marriage equality. You can't have this without polygamy."

Chief Justice John Roberts said in his dissent on Friday's ruling that people in polygamous relationships

Bobbi Kristina's Estate Sued For Almost $750,000 Over Head-On Car Accident Just Four Days Before She Was Found Unconscious

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadHealthInjuryBobbi Kristina

As if things we're already bad enough for Bobbi Kristina's family, her estate is now facing a lawsuit for nearly $750,000 in damages and medical bills.

A motorist in Georgia named Russell J. Eckerman is suing the 22-year-old for a car accident he says she caused in Marietta, Georgia just four days before her own incident on Jan. 31.

In legal documents entered on Monday, Russell claims that Krissy was operating her vehicle recklessly in poor driving conditions when she swerved over the center line, and hit him head on.

Russell's hospital bills cover his spinal fractures, skull fractures, facial fractures, and even a medically-induced coma that he was put under in order to make it through surgery.

However, Bobbi Kristina isn't the only defendent in the case — Russell is also suing Ford for faulty seatbelts and airbags, as well as a third driver involved in the crash.

We hope Krissy's family can manage this new court case during this troubling time.
