Sister Wives Polygamist Nathan Collier Fights To Get Marriage License With Second Wife After Supreme Court's Marriage Equality Ruling!

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineTLC

no title

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

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.

Chris Brown Is Filing Paternity Papers! Find Out What He Wants From Baby Momma Nia Guzman!

Chris Brown wants to fight for custody of Royalty and renegotiate Nia Guzman's child support demands!

Chris Brown is putting his foot down!

He's saying enough is enough with all the baby momma drama with Nia Guzman. The singer has filed papers in Houston to establish paternity over his one-year-old daughter, Royalty.

The 26-year-old has submitted legal documents in the hopes that he could renegotiate what he has to pay Nia in child support.

The 31-year-old has asked the musician for $15 thousand each month, a number he feels is WAY too high. She claims that right now he's paying her about $2,500 every month.

But it's not just about money.

Chris is hoping that once paternity is legally established, a judge can work out a custody deal between the two, since he says Nia never lets him see his daughter.

We just hope that whatever happens, it's in the best interests of little Royalty.

The Case Against Nick Gordon Just Got A LOT Ickier — You'll Never Believe Who's Representing Him Now!

We can't.

Just a week after a 40 million dollar suit was filed against Nick Gordon for alleged emotional and physical abuse against Bobbi Kristina, it was revealed that the Georgia native has hired Jose Baez as his new lawyer.

Seriously, we needed smelling salts after hearing this news!

[ Related: Nick Spotted In Florida While Bobbi Kristina Is In Hospice Care ]

For all of you who were MIA in 2011, Baez successfully defended CASEY ANTHONY against charges that she murdered her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Jose, who was a lawyer with low credibility and a ton of complaints against him prior to the case, skyrocketed to fame after winning the NOT GUILTY verdict.

Considering most of the public was convinced Casey would be convicted, the win secured his status as the one of the most sought out defense attorneys in America.

So, back to Nick.

If Bobbi sadly passes away, the Georgia native will most likely face murder charges as the district attorney's office is now investigating the January 31 drowning incident with greater interest. It makes sense that NG would want to hire Baez in anticipation of the charges.

Sheesh, there's a lot of ICK to go around right now! We can't say we're surprised that Nick and Jose teamed up.

So, what do YOU think of Gordon's choice for a lawyer?

Josh Duggar Isn't In The Clear Just Yet — The 19 Kids & Counting Star Is Set To Face A Lawsuit From A Molestation Victim

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersThe Duggars

At least Josh Duggar may be held accountable for SOME of his crimes.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Josh, who admitted to molesting five victims when he was a teenager, will be sued by one of the young girls(non-family related) in question. While the statute of limitations have passed in the case, experts say the victim can sue thanks to Arkansas Code Annotated Section 16-56-130, which allows victims to file civil suits if they experience the effects of abuse years later.

Wow, just as the the Duggars have slowly come out of hiding to rebuild their image, this happens!! If there's a trial, then we definitely think the show will be done for good!

In addition, now that the statute of limitations have passed, Jim Bob and Michelle won't be able to plead the 5th when asked about the length of time it took to report the crimes to authorities and other DISTURBING details.

We'll keep you updated as the case progresses!

journey drummer charged with rape

Oh no!

ICYMI: Deen Castronovo, the drummer for Journey, was arrested earlier this month in Oregon for domestic violence related charges involving his wife.

However in a dramatic turn of events, it now appears the District Attorney is adding additional charges to the rock star's rap sheet. Yikes.

It's reported the drummer will be charged with rape, sexual abuse, coercion, and unlawful use of a weapon.

That's horrible.

Journey has since let the 49-year-old go from their tour amidst his scandal and replaced him with Omar Hakim. Well, that only make sense, since he's being held without bail in Marion County, Oregon!

Initially, the controversial celebrity was
