Making a movie based on true events can be a real headache!

Will Smith is starring in the upcoming sports drama Concussion, which tells the true story of one of the doctors who discovered the link between football players' major health problems and the repeated blows they took in games.

The film's main antagonist is the NFL, who tries to cover up the controversy and deny all accountability.

But emails leaked in the Sony hack reveal that the studio might have softened the film to avoid making a real life enemy out of one of the most powerful enterprises in the nation!

In the reported emails, Sony executives, Smith's team, and director Peter Landesman discussed changing the script to make it seem like it wasn't purposefully bashing the league.

Dwight Caines, head of Sony's marketing, discussed how they would position the film back in August 2014, writing:

no title

Things might not be looking so good for Donald Trump.

On Thursday, Univision announced they were pulling the plug on the upcoming Miss USA pageant — and cutting ties with the entire Trump co-owned Miss Universe Organization — because of the billionaire's racist comments during his presidential bid speech!

Now, NBC is reportedly evaluating whether or not they want to follow suit and drop the pageant from their broadcast as well!

The Miss Universe Organization puts on the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe pageants, which have aired on NBC and Univision for the past 12 years!

But sources say that NBC lawyers are currently meeting with lawyers from Univision, which is already tied up in a legal mess with the 69-year-old.

As we reported earlier, Trump is planning on suing Univision for breaking their alleged 5 year contract to air the pageant, which is set to broadcast from Baton Rouge on July 12.

If NBC pulls the plug as well, The Donald's attorneys are going to have a lot of work on their hands!

Do YOU think NBC will drop out of the Miss USA pageant?

Privacy or free speech? Which will prevail?

On July 6, Hulk Hogan will take gossip site Gawker to court in Florida for publishing his sex tape on their website.

The 2006 video features the famed wrestler engaging in intercourse with Heather Clem, ex-wife of radio host and his friend "Bubba the Love Sponge" Clem.

This case is significant as it's the first time a celebrity who is taking legal action over a leaked sex tape will bring his or her case to a jury.

The athlete — real name Terry Gene Bollea — is asking for $100 million in damages, claiming he has suffered "injury, damage, loss, harm, anxiety, embarrassment, humiliation, shame and severe emotional distress."

One of the 61-year-old's lawyers — Charles Harder — believes releasing the tape violates his client's right to privacy.

Harder said:

Filed under: Legal MattersJoe Francis

Looks like the legal system is going wild for Joe Francis.

On Tuesday, Judge Fernando M. Olguin of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles issued an arrest warrant for the Girls Gone Wild creator.

Allegedly, the 42-year-old failed to return two luxury cars — a 2007 Cadillac Escalade and a 2012 Bentley Flying Spur — to lawyers after filing for bankruptcy in 2013.

According to court papers, the Kardashian friend claims that he is unable to fork over said vehicles because a Mexican strip club owner took them after several business ventures folded.

This isn't the first time Mr. Francis has gotten in trouble for his money woes.

In August of last year, U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Sandra Klein recommended jail time for the entrepreneur.

The Georgia-native is apparently living in Mexico with his girlfriend Abbey Wilson and their two twins Alexandria Claire Francis and Athena Olivia Francis.

Joe's bankruptcy lawyer declined to comment.

Filed under: Legal MattersHealthViolence

no title

The third time is definitely NOT the charm for Suge Knight.

The rapper was hospitalized for a third time in one month after appearing in court to face murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.

Suge told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday that he had been receiving inadequate medical care since being jailed in January over the alleged hit-and-run death of his friend, Terry Carter.

The 49-year-old said he had been suffering from blindness in one eye and only 15 percent vision in the other, and had lost 35 pounds while in custody.

Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.

In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.

The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder's cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.

Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we'll keep you posted on any updates.

Mel Gibson is totally wishing he wasn't so famous right now!

The disgraced actor then did the moral thing — he left a note with his phone number, and his insurance paid for the victim's repairs, rental car, and other expenses.

However the owner of the impaired car didn't think this was enough!
