Brett Ratner's accuser opens up!

In an emotional interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos for Good Morning America on Wednesday, Brett Ratner's rape accuser has decided to speak out.

As we previously reported, Melanie Kohler alleged the director had raped her in a Facebook post last month, which she almost immediately took down after getting a phone call from Brett's lawyer, Marty Singer.

Crystal Castles Singer Says Former Bandmate Raped Her At Just 15 Years Old — Now He's Hitting Back With A Defamation Lawsuit!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

no title

The split between founding members of Crystal Castles has gone from contentious to criminal.

Last week, singer Alice Glass accused former bandmate and ex-boyfriend Ethan Kath (real name Claudio Palmieri) of years of rape and abuse. Now Kath is hitting back with a defamation lawsuit.

How did all this start?

Glass quit the band in 2014, after which Kath released a new song — and with it a statement greatly diminishing Glass's previous role as just a sometime vocalist who didn't even appear on all the band's "best known songs."

She responded on Twitter that "manipulative statements about my contributions to the band only reinforce the decision I made to move on to other things." Things got worse from there.

It wasn't for another couple years that Glass released a lengthy public statement on October 24, accusing Kath of sexually exploiting and abusing her from the time she was in 10th grade, writing:

Ciara Drops $15 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Ex Future!

Filed under: Legal MattersCiaraBreakups

Ciara and Future

With a new husband and another baby on the way, it sounds like Ciara is officially ready to move on.

On Friday, Russell Wilson's love filed court documents in Fulton Country, Georgia to drop her $15 million defamation lawsuit against baby daddy, Future.

TMZ reports the 31-year-old did not receive any money from the rapper in exchange for dropping the suit, as it appears they've reached an agreement on the custody of their two-year-old son, Future Zahir.

The case has been dismissed "with prejudice," which means the R&B songstress can't refile at a later time.

This all stems, of course, from when the 33-year-old blasted CiCi for being a control freak and a bad mom — which she claimed hurt her career.

Seems like she's in a better place now!

Whomp whomp, Bristy! Whomp whomp indeed….

Remember when Bristol Palin got into a heated exchange with Talent Manager Stephen Hanks after gyrating on a mechanical bull at LA’s famous Saddle Ranch bar?

Well, Stephen sure does! And he is pissed that footage of the incident is being used on Bristol’s upcoming Lifetime reality show Life’s A Tripp - without his permission - AND that Bristol claimed the verbal fight was a major reason for her move back to Alaska…

So he’s slapping that a** with a defamation lawsuit!

The lawsuit states:

Manny Pacquiao Wants Judge To Issue Default Ruling Against Mayweather In His Favor

Manny Vs Floyd

Championship boxer Manny Pacquiao wants to KO Floyd Mayweather Jr. in court!

After filing a defamation lawsuit against Mayweather for the undefeated boxer's allegations that Pacquiao has taken steroids, Mayweather has failed to show up in court 24 times!

Is Floyd "Money" Mayweather afraid he'll finally get beaten by another boxer or does he just not want to lose his nickname in a court ordered settlement, which may reportedly be as high as $10 million!

Floyd's camp has said the boxer was unable to show his face in court because of his obligations to his training for an upcoming fight, but Manny is "sick and tired" of waiting around.

In response, the plaintiff has submitted a motion for the judge to issue a default judgment in his favor and offered photos that show the defended partying it up on the days he was supposedly "training".

One of Pacquiao's lawyers told reporters on Thursday:

"(Mayweather's) lawyer has to respond to the motion, and the judge will need to decide. Judges can and do issue defaults against parties who do not obey their orders and won't participate in the discovery process according the rules. And you forfeit your opportunity to be a litigant when you defy the rules."

We're right there with Manny! If Floyd is going to open his big mouth and attribute another boxer's success to steroid use, he better be able to back it up in court!
