And the saga continues…

On Tuesday, sources say Brad Pitt's child abuse investigation conducted by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services has now been expanded to include the entire family including Angelina Jolie.

While the case primarily focused on an incident where the Troy actor allegedly attacked son Maddox on a plane, authorities are now looking at other alleged incidents involving Brad AND Angie that were allegedly witnessed by 1 or more of their children.

Most notably, there are reports of "unintentional contact" between the actor and a child.

This new development was based on interviews the DCFS did with members of the family and members of the flight crew of the said plane incident.

Because of these new claims, the investigation has been expanded "several weeks." While officials may interview more people, they hope to wrap things up very shortly.

Regardless of the DCFS' findings, this will NOT affect Brad and Angelina's divorce or custody agreement.

We're glad justice is being served.

As we previously reported, earlier this month a man named Shaun Haywood tried to trespass Miranda Kerr's Malibu home and violently assaulted her security personnel in the process. Not only was the guard stabbed in the eye, but he was also knifed in the arm.

While the security buff was able to shoot the assailant four times, he managed to survive the self-defense. Now TMZ reports Haywood is facing a legal ordeal as prosecutors made the decision to charge him with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and mayhem.

If convicted, Shaun could face up to life in prison.

We'll keep you updated as this case progresses.

Amber and Jim Marchese

Amber Marchese and her husband Jim (real name James) haven't forgotten about that domestic violence arrest back in April.

In case you forgot, Jim was arrested at LAX for domestic violence after allegedly assaulting his wife on an airplane. Reportedly, a Virgin America flight attendant called the police after the RHONJ stars boarded a red-eye flight and Jim allegedly grabbed his lady by throat and threatened to harm her.

Shortly after, the Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars contestants released a statement saying:

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineKate BeckinsaleBreakups

And it's official!

Almost a year after their reported split, Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman are making it official.

TMZ is reporting the actress' husband of twelve years has decided to file for divorce due to "irreconcilable differences."

Even though it's seemingly been a long time coming as the couple were believed to have separated in November 2015, we still held out hope for a reconciliation.

According to the new report, the director and his estranged wife have waived any right to spousal support, which could indicate the two signed a prenup ahead of their 2004 wedding!

Maybe these two will be able to have a drama-free divorce??

We're wishing them both the best regardless!

Justin Timberlake Could Go To JAIL For Taking A Selfie While Voting — Legal Info HERE!

| Filed under: Justin TimberlakeLegal MattersPolitik

What a cautionary tale!

On Monday, Justin Timberlake flew to his hometown of Memphis to exercise his right to vote. The exciting moment comes on the heels of Justin expressing MAJOR support for presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

While Timberlake was clearly excited to cast his vote, he obviously wasn't paying too much attention to the law either.

For those who don't know, Tennessee law prohibits voters from taking photos or recording conversations in the voting rooms. Offenders of this law (which was just passed last year) can be hit with a 30-day jail sentence and a $50 fine.

Yikes! It's hard to imagine the dad behind bars for participating in democracy!

As for whether the police are involved, TMZ reports the D.A. has put this case "under review." We imagine they'll decide whether or not to prosecute pretty quickly.

Kendall Jenner's Trespasser Found NOT Guilty Of Stalking… But He's Not Completely Off The Hook!

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Scary!Kendall Jenner

no title

We guess we can't call him Kendall Jenner's stalker anymore!

On Monday, the jury returned the verdict for Shavaughn McKenzie, the man who was arrested after following the reality star onto her property.

It turns out that the jury found Shavaughn NOT guilty for stalking! But, the 25-year-old isn't entirely off the hook. He was found guilty of trespassing.

But, considering Miz Jenner had "never been so scared" after the incident, we can't imagine the 20-year-old is super comfortable with the verdict.

Shavaughn will be sentenced on November 11.

Here's a small victory for Kim Kardashian West!

As we previously reported, the reality star had filed a lawsuit against MediaTakeOut.com, after the site claimed she was lying about her Paris robbery.

The site had alleged that the 36-year-old had "staged" the incident and even compared her to Ryan Lochte!

But, on Monday, the brunette beauty dropped her suit against MTO because the outlet retracted the stories in question. In place of the posts, the page published an apology to the celeb, writing:

"MediaTakeOut regrettably published a series of false stories about Kim Kardashian West suggesting she faked the robbery in Paris, lied to authorities and then filed a $5.6 million fraudulent insurance claim for her stolen jewelry. MediaTakeOut knows that Mrs. Kardashian West was in fact robbed in Paris. We have permanently removed from our website any and all posts that suggested she staged the robbery, lied about it to the French police and committed an insurance crime."

The site's apology continued:
