Lisa Marie Presley’s estranged husband Michael Lockwood has demanded she pony up $450,000 for the attorney fees he’s racked up during their divorce battle. Lisa Marie responded by saying that she can’t pay because she’s broke. $450,000 is a drop in the suck bucket for Lisa Marie, who claims to be $16 million in debt. A few months ago, Lisa Marie said her former financial manager Barry Siegel is the reason why she’s got money problems. She also threatened him with a lawsuit. TMZ says that Lisa Marie recently made good on that threat.
Is she sure they weren’t just shaming her for being Farrah Abraham, a shameful person who just so happens to have also done porn? I’m sure a judge will get to the bottom of that. What we know right now is that former Teen Mom cast member and current I-guess-you-could-call-her-a-mother Farrah Abraham has filed a lawsuit against Viacom, the parent company of MTV, for wrongful termination.
According to TMZ, Russell Simmons’ latest in a growing line of accusers comes not only with an awful allegation against him, but with a $5 million lawsuit. A 37-year-old woman named Jennifer Jarosik claims she met 60-year-old Russell Simmons in 2006 and they bonded over meditation, yoga, and being vegan (he was still been married to Kimora Lee at that time). Jennifer was also working on a documentary at the time, which Russell allegedly offered to co-produce and finance. Ten years later, Russell allegedly invited Jennifer to his house. Once there, it became very clear Russell’s motives weren’t to compare mediation mantras or fry up some tempeh bacon.
There’s reason to celebrate at the compound today (syringes of sparkling Botox for all!). Several months ago, Blac Chyna decided to sue Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and Rob Kardashian for allegedly plotting to kill her reality show, and accusing Rob of being violent. The Kardashians wanted it thrown out, arguing that Chyna’s choice to get a restraining order against her Rob & Chyna co-star is what killed her TV show. Lawyers for Blac Chyna and the Kardashians recently squared off in court. TMZ says that Kim and Kris got their wish, and a judge has tentatively dismissed them from Chyna’s lawsuit.
Last year, two songwriters threw at lawsuit at Taylor Swift accusing her of ripping off the lyrics to “Shake It Off” from the 2001 3LW hit “Playas Gon’ Play.” Taylor loves a good lawsuit, but not when she’s the one getting sued. She has recently asked a judge to throw the lawsuit out.
