Rapper DMX’s Bankruptcy Filing Rejected by Judge

The Source Hip Hop Music Awards 2001A federal judge in New York has tossed rapper DMX’s bankruptcy filing, making him fair game for creditors.

The Journal News reports that a bankruptcy judge in White Plains dismissed the 42-year-old rapper’s July 29 Chapter 11 filing on Friday.

The hip-hop star’s real name is Earl Simmons. The judge’s move means he could lose his possessions including his share in a home in suburban Mount Kisko.

Simmons’ biggest debt is $1.3 million in child support owed to some of the 10 children he has fathered.

U.S. Trustee Tracy Hope Davis said Simmons failed to provide trustworthy information in his bankruptcy filing.

Simmons’ publicist Domenick Nati said he was unaware of the court hearing.

Simmons was arrested Monday in South Carolina on charges including driving with a suspended license.

Lindsay Lohan Arrested for Allegedly Assaulting Woman at New York City Nightclub

Lindsay Lohan being released from jail

Looks like Lindsay Lohan may have a hit on her hands—and not the good kind.

The critically savaged Liz & Dick star was arrested early Thursday morning after allegedly punching a woman at a New York City nightclub, E! News has confirmed.

According to an NYPD spokeswoman, the 26-year-old actress got into a fight with the woman at Club Avenue in downtown Manhattan and allegedly punched her in the face.

Cops arrested Lohan at around 4 a.m. outside the club, and she was charged with assault.

A source tells E! News that the woman LiLo allegedly clocked is a tourist visiting from West Palm Beach, Fla., and was at the club with her husband. The source also claims that the star had been banned from the club previously.

Lohan was subsequently released from custody shortly before 8 a.m., covering herself with a black jacket as she left the precinct. Authorities say they expect Lohan to be issued a desk-appearance ticket.

It’s the latest legal headache for the embattled comebacking star, who was also arrested in early September for allegedly swiping a man with her car at another downtown Manhattan club, and, a few weeks later, was allegedly assaulted at a New York City hotel.

Lohan is also still on probation in her necklace-jacking case. No word yet how this latest arrest will affect that status and whether it will land her back in jail.

After hearing news of his daughter’s arrest, Lindsay’s estranged dad, Michael Lohan, vented his frustration about LiLo’s latest police run-in.

“She is in a dark place,” he tells E! News exclusively. “It’s in God’s hands, and I hope he deals with her appropriately.”

He also took his ex-wife, Dina Lohan, to task for their daughter’s downward spiral.

“I was trying to get Dina on board with me for a long time but especially the last two weeks,” he added. “If she had, this wouldn’t have happened. Lindsay is acting out in numerous ways because she needs us, and internally she’s hurt and angry. Again, it’s all on Dina, and I wish to God she would stop and resolve things with us to do the same for our children.”

Earlier in the morning he also took to Twitter to offer general parenting advice in the wake of LiLo’s bust-up.

“This is for ALL parents who go or went thru the same! Please don’t make the mistakes!,” he wrote.

Hulk Hogan Planning Lawsuit Over Sex Tape Leak

 

Hulk Hogan Sex Tape

Wrestling star Hulk Hogan is threatening legal actions against anyone who continues to display his recently leaked sex tape video footage online.

Hulk Hogan intends to sue over the grainy sex tape footage that found its way online this week, a lawyer for the Hogan Knows Best star tells E! News.

Attorney David Houston wouldn’t say exactly when their lawsuit will be filed, or who the intended targets are, but he said in no uncertain terms that they are “commencing action.”

And that comes as no surprise. Houston told E! back in March, when news of the existence of the footage first broke, that they would sue to ensure no one profited from it.

Hogan’s partner in X-rated home-movie antics has not been identified. Houston said that his client was unaware that he was being recorded at the time.

An anonymous, er, donor slipped about 30 minutes of teaser footage to Gawker, which posted it yesterday. It’s unclear when the tape was made, but Hogan is seen checking his ringing phone to see if it’s his son, Nick, calling—an indicator that the recording was made sometime after Nick’s release from jail in 2008.

Lohan thrown or grabbed in NY hotel room

 

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan got into an argument early Sunday with a 25-year-old man in her New York City hotel room over photos on a cellphone and she was physically grabbed or thrown, a law enforcement official said.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the encounter Sunday morning and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Christian LaBella of Valley Village, Calif., was taken into custody around 6 a.m., authorities confirmed. He faces a misdemeanor assault charge and a harassment charge. He was still in custody Sunday afternoon and could not be reached for comment.

Police did not identify the other party because that person is the alleged victim of assault.

The official said Lohan and LaBella had encountered each other earlier in the night at a club. It was unclear whether they had met before.

Lohan was injured but not hospitalized, her publicist, Steve Honig, said in a statement.

“Lindsay has spoken with police and is fully cooperating with the investigation,” he said. He declined to comment further.

Lohan herself has had several run-ins with law enforcement.

Last week, Lohan, 26, was accused clipping a pedestrian with her car outside a nightclub and driving away. She was given a ticket and was scheduled to appear in court Oct. 23. Honig has said he expects those allegations to be proven false.

The actress was also involved in a car accident in California this summer that sent her and an assistant to a hospital, but didn’t result in serious injuries for anyone. The accident remains under investigation.

In May, she was cleared of allegations that she struck a Hollywood nightclub manager with her car.

Lohan remains on informal probation for taking a necklace from a jewelry store without permission last year. That means she doesn’t have to check in with a judge or probation officer but could face a jail term if arrested again.

Lohan recently filmed “The Canyons,” a movie by “Less Than Zero” author Bret Easton Ellis.

Steve Tomaszewski, a spokesman for Illinois Rep. John Shimkus, confirmed Sunday afternoon that LaBella has worked for the congressman in his Washington office. Tomaszewski said no one from the Republican’s office had been contacted by LaBella.

Suspect in killing was ‘Sons of Anarchy’ actor

Johnny Lewis

Court records show “Sons of Anarchy” actor Johnny Lewis was released from jail a week before being found dead in his driveway after police say he apparently killed his landlady.

Los Angeles police said Thursday that the 28-year-old Lewis is the only suspect in the death of 81-year-old Catherine Davis, who was discovered slain inside the hillside home in Los Feliz.

Authorities say they are investigating Davis’ death and that it appears she was beaten. They say the actor died Wednesday after climbing atop the home and either jumping or falling to the ground.

Lewis played Kip “Half-Sack” Epps in the FX show.

Lewis pleaded no contest to assault with a deadly weapon and attempted burglary in separate cases this year, according to records.

He enrolled in a drug, alcohol and psychiatric treatment program over the summer, the records show.

Lewis was released from county jail Sept. 21.

As a condition of his probation in both cases, he was ordered not to use narcotics.

Lewis’ attorney Jonathan Mandel said Thursday he was “surprised” and “baffled” by the deaths.

Mandel declined to immediately comment on Lewis’s criminal history or possible drug problems pending consideration of client confidentiality requirements.

Before Lewis was discovered Wednesday morning, neighbors reported hearing a woman screaming in the home, said Los Angeles Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith.

Neighbors also told authorities that a man had jumped a fence, assaulted a painter and homeowner next door and jumped back.

It’s unclear whether drugs or alcohol were involved, but police are investigating that possibility based on the circumstances of the crime, Smith said.

Lewis had a career spanning more than a decade, mainly in small roles. He played Ricky in the 2007 movie “AVPR: Aliens vs Predator — Requiem” and was Dennis ‘Chili’ Childress for two seasons on TV’s “The O.C.”

His role in “Sons of Anarchy” came in 2008 and 2009.

Bynes was charged Friday in Burbank, Calif., with two counts of driving on a suspended license. The charges stem from an incident Sunday that led to her car being impounded.

Bynes faces two other cases — a drunken driving case and a hit-and-run case involving two accidents. Bynes’ driver’s license was revoked in August, and a judge last week ordered her to stop driving.

The 26-year-old starred in the Nickelodeon series “All That” and the 2010 film “Easy A.” She has pleaded not guilty in the DUI case.

Her attorney Richard Hutton was not available for comment.

The new charges were first reported by celebrity website TMZ
