Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan is at it again.

In case you forgot, the WWE athlete (born Terry Bollea) was awarded with $140 million in damages after the 62-year-old sued Gawker Media for violating his privacy when they posted a sex tape of himself sleeping with his former best friend's wife.

Now, weeks later, the 62-year-old is filing yet another lawsuit against the gossip site and others for allegedly leaking sealed court documents to the National Enquirer where he is heard making racists remarks.

A Judge Solidifies The Appointee Of Prince's Estate

Well, this is a start!

On Monday, a judge in Minnesota confirmed the appointee of Prince's massive estate. The legal move is the first of many steps that will have to be taken before the singer's fortune can be fairly disseminated amongst his siblings.

The singer's only full-blooded sister, Tyka Nelson, made the move last week to have Bremer Trust handle the singer's financial affairs after it was revealed he didn't leave a will. Considering Bremer Trust has dealt with the icon's accounts before, it makes sense they'd be the one to take care of his money until an executor is approved.

News of the confirmation comes on the heels of rumored fighting between Tyka and the rest of Prince's half-siblings including Alfred Jackson. Apparently Nelson didn't invite Alfred to the legend's memorial service, which was very hurtful to him. The other family members also believe that T.N. is trying to score a larger portion of the Purple Rain singer's estate.

At the hearing today, rumors of tension were seemingly confirmed when Tyka chose to sit separately from her four other siblings in attendance. The estranged sis also didn't take the opportunity to talk to her other family members.

Despite alleged disagreements, Alfred's lawyer said of the hearing:

Britney Spears Faces Off Against Ex Manager Sam Lutfi In New Deposition

Get deets about the deposition drama!

Britney Spears just can't get away from Sam Lutfi! On Monday, the pop princess arrived at a deposition for the ongoing lawsuit her ex manager filed against her.

For those who may not remember, the blonde beauty's former friend is claiming that she owes him money for his services… specifically 15% of her 800K per month salary from back before their famous falling out.

Sam says he pitched the idea to Brit back in the day, and that Miz Spears agreed. So, it's up to a jury to decide if the superstar actually has to pay up.

Phew! Since you're all caught up, Perezcious readers, here's what's happening now!

The gorgeous gal is getting deposed by Mr. Lutfi's lawyer in the controversial case. To make matters worse for the lovely lady, she has to physically come face to face with the man who supposedly encouraged her 2007 drug use, even though her legal team tried to keep them from seeing each other.

Brit's attorneys had previously argued that her old companion intimidates her and affects her ability to think clearly, but the judge refused to ban him from the room.

However, the magistrate did set up some protections for the singer, requiring the two to sit at opposite ends of a long conference table.

There are also surveillance cameras that show the entire room, allowing everyone to keep tabs on Sam so they can see if he's attempting to antagonize the momma-of-two in any way.

Plus, both parties have been ordered to arrive and leave at different times so they don't bump into each other.

What do U think about all this, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments!

The second the singer stepped off stage, he was busted by a bail bondsmen and police officers. The 43-year-old was taken to jail for skipping a court hearing about the time in January when he allegedly vandalized the house he used to own, but lost to foreclosure last year.

Sadly, this isn't the first time the band's only remaining original member decided to add vandalism to the list of special skills on his resume.

A few years ago, the musician reportedly took a buzz saw to his neighbor's patio.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Wes' bail has been set at $250K.
