Robin Williams' Estate Dispute Between Widow And Children Finally Heads To Court

Filed under: Legal MattersRobin Williams

no title

So sad that this family has to go through even more drama!

As we reported, Robin Williams' widow Susan Schneider filed a lawsuit in December against the late comedian's children — Zachary, Zelda, and Cody — regarding the ownership of several items in his estate.

Well it turns out this dispute will finally be presented in front of a judge.

On Monday, attorneys from both parties will meet at a San Francisco courthouse to begin the legal process.

As we wrote last November, the Ms. Doubtfire actor left his entire fortune to his wife and three children.

However, almost immediately, the two sides couldn't agree on which properties belonged to who.

Schneider argues that all the items contained in the couples Tiburon home are hers. In addition, she claims his children took belongings which they were not entitled to.

Williams' kin vehemently disagree and believe they were granted his memorabilia and industry awards according to his trust, IN ADDITION to certain articles in the Tiburon estate.

To make matters more complicated, both camps cannot come to an agreement about the Jumanji star's watch collection, and about which entities should go in storage.

We just hope the family can settle their differences for the sake of Robin's memory.

However, the songwriter is insistent on proving his innocence, and is reportedly demanding that the Die Young performer turn over medical records to show said crime!

The 41-year-old is also asking the glitter queen to hand over all texts, emails, and any kind of documents that would suggest he drugged and assaulted her on a private jet, as well as records from her time in rehab last year.

The popstar is allegedly begging the judge not to allow this to happen, in addition to tossing out his countersuit claiming she is not only lying about the abuse, but is also extorting him in order to get out of her contract.

As previously documented, the We R Who We R singer won the first round of their law drama when the judge decided to adjudicate her case before her collaborator's.

Regardless of who is right, we just hope that justice will prevail in the end.

Seth MacFarlane & Ted Win Their Copyright Court Case! F*ck Yeah!!!

no title

It turns out Ted was straight outta Seth MacFarlane's twisted head after all!

The Family Guy creator won a big copyright lawsuit on Monday when he proved his rightness so hard, that the other side gave up.

[ Video: The Official Trailer For Ted 2 Has Arrived! Watch All The Raunchy Action HERE! ]

Bengal Mangle Productions sued Fuzzy Door Productions, Media Rights Capital, and Universal Pictures in July over the rights of the teddy bear Ted. They claimed that their character, Charlie, was "a teddy bear who lives in a human, adult world with all human friends. Charlie has a penchant for drinking, smoking, prostitutes, and is a generally vulgar yet humorous character." Sounds like Ted…

But Seth and his people proved the suit was without merit, and the case was dropped. The court docs said:

Justin Bieber's Egging Victim Wants More Money Because The Biebs Tarnished His Good Name

Filed under: Legal MattersJustin Bieber

no title

You may remember when Justin Bieber egged his neighbor's house, and paid $80,000 in damages. Well, the victim wants more money now!

Jeff Schwartz has told the singer's people to pay him $1 million, or get prepared to go to court because he feels that the incident has tarnished his good name. Jeff works in car sales media software and says now he's just known as the guy Justin Bieber egged and spat on.

And apparently that $1 million will also be reparations for The Biebs verbally abusing his wife and daughter.

Hmm… something doesn't sound quite right here. Didn't they both agree that Jeff was given what was deemed fair?

Justin's camp is of course saying that the majority of Jeff's story isn't true.

Thoughts???

T.I. Isn't Worried About Blurred Lines Lawsuit With Marvin Gaye's Family! See What He Had To Say HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersT.I.GIFs

no title

Doesn't seem like he thinks he'll end up in the same boat as Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke.

But that doesn't mean T.I. won't have to show up to court to defend himself!

The rapper was recently named in a new lawsuit from Marvin Gaye's family who want the ruling judge to "correct" their decision to include not just Pharrell and Thicke in their Blurred Lines lawsuit but T.I. and all of the music labels involved, as well!

But T.I. recently shared his feelings on being named in this copyright infringement case and it sounds like he's pretty secure in the knowledge that he didn't steal anything and thus does NOT owe anybody anything!

Kesha Wins The First Round In Case Against Dr. Luke — Singer's Lawsuit Triumphs Over Producer's Rebuttal

Filed under: Celebrity FeudsLegal MattersKe$ha

no title

The case hasn't even started yet and it seems as if Kesha is already winning the race.

There has been a ton of drama between the glitter queen and her former producer Dr. Luke.

Last October, the 28-year-old filed a lawsuit against the famous music maker, accusing him of emotionally, verbally, and sexually abusing her.

After that legal share, Dr. Luke shot back with a his own defamation case against the singer!

Since those lawsuits were filed, neither case was chosen to move forward until now.
