Oksana To Sue Mel In Civil Lawsuit

Filed under: Legal MattersMel Gibson

oksana-to-sue-mel-gibson-in-civil-lawsuit.jpg

Just when we thought it was almost over.

Oksana Grigorieva and her lawyer Daniel Horowitz are sticking with their plan to sue Mel Gibson in a civil lawsuit.

When asked if Mel's no contest plea might have changed their minds, Horowitz said, "Our position hasn't changed." They will claim battery, emotional distress and defamation.

Unfortunately for Oksana, Mel's no contest plea in their criminal case will not help her in a civil lawsuit since Mel did not admit to guilt.

This just seems really unnecessary. But now it seems that Oksana really is looking for some sort of monetary compensation.

Ugh.

Sharon Osbourne And Rock Of Love Gal Reach Settlement

sharon osbourne and megan hauserman settle

Way back in March 2009, Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman planned on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.

Last week, jury selection had finally begun for the trial, and it looked like neither party was willing to settle.

NOW, it looks like the two were in fact able to reach a settlement on Sunday, but both parties have refused to discuss.

We're glad to hear these two were able to finally work everything out!

Sharon Osbourne Vs. Rock Of Love Gal: Ot's Going To Court!

sharon osbourne vs megan hauserman

Way back in March 2009, we learned that Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman was planning on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.

Now, jury selection has begun for the trial, and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Abraham A. Khan has tried to convince both parties to settle, but to no avail.

Hauserman's lawyer Roderick L. Lindblom says he plans to show the jury video footage from Charm School as evidence.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"You watch this tape, it's pretty horrific. I want to put on evidence and ask a jury to award money."

At this point, it looks like Team Hauserman will be dropping the infliction of emotional distress claim, but they still have every intention of pushing forward with the battery and negligence claims.

Hauserman is claiming that Sharon "hit her, pulled her hair and scratched her," following their insult fest. Osbourne is countersuing because she claims Megan "assumed the risk of injury" by taking part in the show, and that she "breached her part of the agreement by suing."

In her countersuit, Osbourne says that she believes Megan Hauserman started the incident in order to get publicity.

We agree.

…Team Osbourne or Team Hauserman?

Nicolette Sheridan Drops Physical Injury And Emotional Distress Claims Against DH Creator

nicollette-sheridan-drops-claims-against-abc.jpg

Looks like she's had a change of heart!

Former Desperate Housewives actress Nicollette Sheridan is dropping two of the most extreme claims from her lawsuit against her former DH employers, creator Marc Cherry, Touchstone Television, and ABC.

Back in April, Sheridan sued Cherry, Touchstone, and ABC, for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, emotional distress, gender violence, and wrongful termination. ABC responded that all of her claims were "without merit."

In regards to her physical injury and emotional distress claims, ABC required that she submit a physical and psychiatric evaluation, however, Sheridan has dropped those claims so she will no longer need to fulfill their evaluation request.

She still alleges though, that her physical injury claims are valid, but she wants to "streamline" the case.

Something seems a little fishy here.

Who do U believe?? Sheridan or ABC?

Demi's Dad Keeps Yapping!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadDemi Lovato

demi-lovatos-father-patrick-speaks-to-the-press-about-daughters-rehab-stay-again

This man just needs to stop. Right now.

Patrick Lovato, Demi Lovato's father, is still talking to the press about her daughter's recent admittance to a rehab facility, and claims now that he spoke to her on the phone, and that she confirmed to him that the current rumor that her problems stemmed from the death of her friend/possible boyfriend David Osborn put her over the edge emotionally and mentally.

He says:

“Demi’s doing great, she’s such a strong girl. She told me she’s getting better. She was really heartbroken. She was really in love with the guy. Bless her heart. She’s always been an honest person, what can I say? All I’ve got here is my dog Daytona but I’ve offered to let Demi come and stay here any time she wants to.”

We think it's pretty foul that this guy is using something as difficult and emotionally trying as his daughter's emotional breakdown and subsequent stay in rehab to get press, and a part of us tends to doubt that he's actually spoken to her!

We really hope that he'll just leave her alone and not add any more complications to her life!

Poor thing. We're still thinking of you, bb.

Joe Jackson Wants A WHOLE LOT Of $$$ For Michael's Wrongful Death

joe jackson wants lots of money for michael jacksons wrongful death

Michael Jackson's dad wants an enormous amount of money as compensation in Michael's wrongful death lawsuit.

According to lawsuit documents, Joe Jackson is looking for somewhere between $10-$500 million from Dr. Conrad Murray.

Here's the breakdown of where that money will go, according to Joe:

-20% for loss of support

-40% for emotional distress

-40% for loss of comfort, aid, society, and companionship

Whether Joe's number ends up being $12 million or $496 million, Dr. Murray is going to have serious problems, because according to the doctor, he's broke and his insurance company refuses to cover ANY settlement, regardless of the $$$ amount.

Sounds like this could get messy, quickly.

What do U think about this case? Does Joe Jackson deserve the $$$ amount he's asking for?

kardashianswatermark.jpg

LOLs!

This story is HIGHlarious!!!

An inmate at the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections is suing Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, claiming he experienced "extreme emotional distress due to their outrageousness of actions."

D.J. Goodson says he was forced to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and became permanently scarred after watching domestic abuse from a boxing match with Kim on an episode, as well as emotional abuse from Kourtney's "rantings." The lawsuit also states that he went under distress from racism after Khloe referred to a doll as "the black baby."

He is currently suing for $75,000.

Oh bb, we're actually, really rooting for you! Honest! We only wish we came up with the idea first!
