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!

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.

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:

Suge Knight Files A New Lawsuit Claiming Dr. Dre Once Hired A Hitman To Kill Him!

Either Suge Knight is filing a lawsuit, or he's the subject of one.

According to TMZ, Suge is suing longtime enemy Dr. Dre for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill him back in 2014. The suit follows many years of controversies, arrests, and other legal issues for the rapper.

While Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015, he isn't letting incarceration get in the way of his revenge.

According to the scandalized figure, he entered a "lifelong" business agreement with former Death Row Records partner back when the two were friendly. S.K. reasons this gave him a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings, which includes his popular business Beats By Dre.

The 50-year-old went on to allege that the mogul tried to cut him out of the Beats By Dre deal after Apple bought the company. Apparently Apple did NOT want Suge's name and sordid history attached to the project.

Given the tricky predicament, Mr. Knight claims the celeb hired a hitman to shoot him at a party over VMAs weekend. Suge went on to survive the seven shots to his stomach and the shooter was never caught despite there being thirty-seven cameras at the club.

In response to the suit, Dre's lawyer shot back:

"Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."

Wow! The 51-year-old's legal rep sounds PISSED.

So, who do YOU believe in this mess?
