Machine Gun Kelly is being sued by the bouncer he allegedly threw a bottle at, according to TMZ. The bouncer, whose name is William Long, filed a lawsuit in Florida claiming the rapper used a liquor bottle as a weapon to slice his finger during a massive bar brawl in January.
MGK was arrested for disorderly conduct following the incident and tweeted: ”Just spent my entire night in a f**king Florida jail…s**t escaladed way to quick last night, it always does with us though.”
Long is now seeking over $15,000 in damages, after being in the hospital for eight days with two different surgeries.
We’re used to celebrities being taken advantage of so the supposedly injured can get an extra buck. But this bouncer seems to have gone through some SERIOUS pain and post trauma. Ouch.

In case you’re not one of Justin Bieber’s 19 million Twitter followers, the pop star randomly decided to tweet his number with the final digit missing to all his
teen followers on March 12, and told them to give him a call.
That means obsessed fans, stalkers, bewitched listeners, lost connections, desperate housewives, struggling artists and haters alike only needed to pound one of ten options at the end of the number to get through to him.
Now he’s being threatened with legal action by two “victims” who received calls far worse than telemarketers or debt collectors, instead they received non-stop calls from screaming girls. We’re talking 1000 calls a day at all hours. According to TMZ, the two people are from Texas and want compensation for Justin’s
prank “reckless” behaviour.
Justin! Come on, every prankster, especially a host on Punk’d, should know fake numbers consist of 555 at the beginning. Come on now.
Do you think the Texans deserve compensation for the calls or are they just taking advantage of a loaded celebrity?
A couple paid $670 for four tickets to a Miley Cyrus concert in 2007. The North Carolina couple paid three times the face value.
So what did these crazy Miley fans do? They sued Stubhub – saying it’s illegal to sell a ticket for more than $3 over face value.
Luckily, the judges had half of brain and threw the case out of court. The judges saidStubhub did nothing illegal.
WHAT?! You mean the Kardashian sisters didn’t get their bikini bodies from knocking back magic pills? Blasphemy!
The Kardashian sisters are being sued $5 million for promoting a diet pill called Quicktrim because the plaintiffs claim there’s no way the girls lost weight with a pill — especially one in which the main ingredient is caffeine.
According to the suit, which was filed in New York by Bursor & Fisher: “The FDA has determined [caffeine] is not a safe or effective treatment for weight control.”
The plaintiff’s claim the sisters fed lies through commercials, magazines and social media, including Kim’s endorsements on Twitter:
The plaintiffs claim they never would have bought the product if the sisters hadn’t made their testimonials. There’s no comment from the Kardashian clan so far.
I never understood why people believe celebrity testimonials since they’re usually being paid for their work. I’m especially hesitant when I see diet pills because they seem to do more harm than good. So on the one hand, I find it unbelievable that so many people could be “fooled.” But I also think celebrities should be more careful about the brands they represent in the future. Representing a makeup palette is one thing but why promote dangerous diet pills that they probably don’t take in the first place?
Talk about brotherly love. Liam Gallagher is suing his brother Noel for calling him a “drunk.”
TMZ reports Noel claims Oasis bailed on a 2009 music festival because Liam was too “hung over to perform.”
Liam just told U.K. tabloid The Sun: “I have taken legal action against Noel Gallagher for statements he made claiming Oasis pulled out of the 2009 V festival Chelmsford gig because I had a hangover.”
Liam claims the real reason was he had a case of laryngitis.
He adds, “I tried to resolve this amicably but have been left with no choice but legal action. All I want is an apology.”
Yet another example of why you shouldn’t mix business with family.
The lyric which is causing the controversy is:
Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay is claiming in her lawsuit … “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.”
TMZ reports Lohan is trying to stop Pitbull from broadcasting or performing the song.
Rebecca claims to have written a song called “Juda” in 1999, which sounds quite similar to Gaga’s tune. And Rebecca has proof Gaga’s song is hers. Rebecca’s former bass player, Brian Gaynor, is now employed by a song writing firm that wrote 17 of the songs on “Born This Way.”
Rebecca’s lawyer, Chris Niro, tells TMZ, “Though the songs are different styles, the composition is the same and the chorus is the same melody … [Rebecca] is seeking recognition for what she created.”
Rebecca is suing for an unspecified amount. Rebecca certainly has some convincing evidence, and this definitely hurts some of Gaga’s credibility.
Well, that’s what happens when you don’t write your own songs.
TMZ reports The Situation dumped his former managers in May “due to lack of performance.” In the management’s lawsuit, they claim Sorrentino violated the agreement by not giving “30 days notice … and a chance to correct any issues.”
Gotham is suing for $1 Million, and they say they are responsible for Sorrentino’s fame.
We aren’t sure that is exactly fair. The Situation is famous because of Jersey Shore. which he obtained on his own merit. The management group just try to help him profit from it. However, that doesn’t mean the two sides are married to one another.
Rick Ross is accused of being involved in a murder – a murder of a Yorkshire Terrier. According to TMZ, Ross’ 3 pitbulls are the responsible for the death, but ultimately Rick is the real one responsible.
The Yorkshire Terrier was named Banks, and according to reports, Ross’ pit bulls escaped from his Atlanta mansion, and attacked the small dog.
The dog suffered ”3 large bite wounds on his back ” along with a “very large bite wound” around his neck. Banks was euthanized immediately after.
Ross was cited for the incident, but Banks’ owner is also suing for $15,000 in damages and court costs.
Rick – sorry buddy but you are on the hook for this one.
Lindsay Lohan is being sued by a photographer for failing to pay him, reports TMZ.
The photographer, Scott Nathan, has previously sued Lohan’s clothing line ’6126′ for never paying him for his work, and now he’s suing again, claiming Lohan still hasn’t fulfilled her part of the settlement.
Nathan stated in the lawsuit, which settled for an undisclosed amount back in December, that ’6126′ was supposed to be making payments beginning in March.
Nathan was hired to shoot pictures of Lohan and was promised a 1% interest in the clothing line in return for his work, but he claims that never happened.
Now Nathan is asking a judge for an order to enforce the settlement.
A rep for Lohan told TMZ, “We don’t comment on any pending legal situations with third parties.”
This girl needs to get her act together. I mean, thank god it’s not alcohol or drug problems, but she needs to manage her finances a little better. If you want to run a successful business, you best start paying your staff.
Britney Spears is being sued for $10 million over a fragrance, reports CTV.
Spears and her father, Jamie, are reportedly being sued by licensing firm Brand Sense Partners.
The firm is alleging that the two have breached their contract, and claim that the company has stopped receiving their 35 per cent commission from Britney’s fragrance line.
The company is asking for the singer to appear for a deposition in relation to the suit.
Britney’s lawyers state the singer cannot appear in a deposition, though, because her father Jamie has conservatorship over her and controls her affairs.
The company still wants Spears to appear in court, though, stating: “Ms. Spears is competent to testify, and she is the key witness in this case. She has direct knowledge of the operative agreement at the heart of this dispute and has signed each of them.”
The court hearing is set for July 11, where it will be decided if Spears must participate in the court battle. Spears has released multiple fragrances, including ‘Beauty,’ ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Curious.’
Let’s hope they resolve this quickly. Spears is just getting back on track, and the last thing she needs is a very public legal battle!
Curb Records is suing country star Tim McGraw for a breach in his label contract, reports Billboard.
The record company alleges that McGraw recorded the album too early prior to its delivery “in a transparent tactic to attempt to fulfill his contractual recording commitment to Curb prematurely in breach of the recording agreement.”
Curb’s position in the suit is that McGraw’s recordings must be “topical and new” and that the artist had agreed that each new album would be recorded “no earlier than 12 months and no later than 18 months” following the delivery of the previous album.
The suit alleges McGraw began recording “Emotional Traffic” tracks “in 2008 or before,” prior to the allowable period under contract.
Curb has been the only label home for McGraw, who released his first album in April of 1993. In recent years, McGraw has been outspoken about his frustration with his label deal. Guess this is the nail in the coffin for him.
The suit seeks undisclosed damages and a sixth “option period” record, as well as “injunctive relief preventing him from agreeing to provide, or providing, his personal services as a recording artist for the benefit of parties other than Curb Records until he has fulfilled his duties and obligations under the Recording Agreement.”
I know he breached his contract, but what do they really care if he recorded it earlier than supposed to? As long as he produces good music, I think they should be fine with it.
Here’s the story. Last year Gordon fired his Father-in-Law, Chris Hutcheson, who was running the business side of Gordon’s food empire. There was apparently some problems and Chris was abrubtly fired.
The Daily Mail reports Hutcheson’s wife, mother of Ramsay’s wife Tana, will allegedly file suit next, claiming breach of contract, unfair dismissal, breach of working times and failure to pay redundancies. Her son and grandson are also suing Ramsay under similar charges.
Ramsay fought back by publishing an open letter begging his mother-in-law to see her daughter, claiming that his wife was “in floods of tears.” He wrote, “You’re punishing your daughter and our four children for all the wrong reasons.”
And this is why you don’t mix business with family. In fact we wouldn’t go into business with Gordan Ramsay under any circumstance. He may be a great chef, but he also seems f-ing nuts!
Details of the lewd encounter are courtesy of the lawsuit Robert Tucker filed this week in Dallas County, according to RadarOnline.com.
More or less the story is Andy was performing in Texas in a blonde wig, black camisole and loose red skirt when he stepped off the stage to interact with his audience.
Dick was approached by Tucker for an autograph. Dick then kneeled on a bar stool, and exposed himself, while playing with the Plaintiff’s head. The lawsuit further explains,
“Defendant Dick then, while still controlling Plaintiff’s head with his hand, forced his genitals against the left side of Plaintiff’s face.”
You can see video of the event here:
TMZ reports the photographer — Antonio Echavarria — claims Tyson attacked him, hit him with a closed fist, and broke his camera. The photographer claims he suffered a concussion and a strained spinal chord.
Tyson was initially arrested after the incident and booked for misdemeanor battery. The case was thrown out however as the L.A. City Attorney officially rejected the case, citing “insufficient evidence.”
Howard Mann is the gentleman who claims to own the photos used at MichaelJacksonCasino.com, but never authorized their use. However Mann can’t find the identity of the person running the site, so now he is suing GoDaddy.com to reveal the identity. GoDaddy was used to register the domain.
Mann is suing for $100 Million from both GoDaddy and the site owner for damages.
A rep for Go Daddy tells TMZ, “While we have not seen the lawsuit, if we are named, Go Daddy plans to vigorously defend itself.” The rep adds, “When customers are involved in a legal dispute, Go Daddy complies with court orders.”
Granted Mann may have a point if he never authorized the use of these photos, however he is just trying to exploit MJ’s death. He is no different than the sleeze who is running MichaelJacksonCasino.com.
PerezHilton reports Masterson’s limited liability company filed for bankruptcy last month in Nevada. Apparently the TomatoBank is suing him for $2.9 million. He has taken a loan out for $3.2 million from the lender but has yet to pay the full amount back.
Danny’s lawyer argues there is a “legitimate dispute” between Danny and the bank, and that Danny has done nothing wrong.
Masterson took the loan out to develop condos as his new gig after acting is property development. You gotta give the guy credit for diversifying, and hopefully he has not gone over his head.
Carrie Prejean found herself in hot water during April 2009 for comments she made regarding gay marriage. Prejean explained that she was opposed to gay marriage while contending in the 2009 Miss USA pageant.
Those comments lead to a PR nightmare for the California beauty – forcing her to hire a PR firm to help her out. Prejean hired A. Larry Ross Communications, costing Prejean over $64,000, according to TMZ.
However she has yet to pay the bill! Consequently the PR firm has filed suit against Carrie looking for their money. Let’s see her talk her way out of this one.
Fresh from his Best Director Oscar loss for Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino is now being sued by a man who says that the quirky film director stole his concept for “Kill Bill,” according to a TMZ report.
In a lawsuit that was filed Tuesday (March 9), Dannez Hunter says that in 1999 he submitted a treatment to Miramax about a made-up character named Ren. He claims that eventually Miramax, Harvey Weinstein and Tarantino ripped-off his ideas, including the “concept/character name Ren.” Hunter says that Tarantino copied everything from Ren witnessing her mother’s gruesome murder to the knife through the abdomen, etc.
