A bloody cricket bat is now the center of the investigation into the death of Oscar Pistorius’ model girlfriend, according to a newspaper in South Africa.
Police are unsure if Reeva Steenkamp used the bat in self-defense or if the Olympic sprinter used it, either by hitting her or breaking down a door.
Steenkamp reportedly hid in the bathroom of his home and was shot four times through the door; a report says her skull may have been crushed as well.
The City Press, a paper in their native South Africa, quotes a source as saying, “There was lots of blood on the bat. Forensic testsMore >

According to reports, woman alleges that she was held against her will and sexually assaulted during a recording session for Lil Wayne back in January.
Weezy personally was NOT involved. The man don’t need to assault no one. He makes love and produces illegitimate kids like they were hip-hop hits.
Anyway. The target of the investigation is music producer Noel “Detail” Fisher, who owns the Canyon Country, Calif., house where it went down.
I waddn’t even there …
According to sources, Detail had people over to the house (also a recording studio) for a Pre-Grammy party during which Lil WayneMore >

[HMG Celebrity News] – After one of the longest and most deliberately public feuds in recent memory sources say Mel Gibson is about to be charged with domestic violence for allegedly assaulting former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. But she will not be charged with trying to extort him.
Insiders close to the case tell TMZ those in charge of the investigation at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office are about to charge Mel with ‘Misdemeanor Domestic Violence,’ not a felony as was expected. If found guilty Mel could spend up to six months in jail.

Since the show debuted on TLC in September last year, Kody, his four wives and their combined 19 children have faced the prospect of federal charges for their living arrangements.

A fatal dose of the anesthetic Propofol led to the demise of Michael Jackson, and Dr. Conrad Murray will be tried for involuntary manslaughter as a result.
Part of Murray’s defense may be Jackson pressuring, even begging him for drugs. While this story is separate, it may speak to MJ’s power of persuasion.
According to a TMZ report, Michael subjected one of his kids – Blanket – to the same kind of risky, unorthodox medical treatment that later killed him.
In 2008, Michael reportedly cajoled a Las Vegas dentist into performing a procedure on Blanket in which he was put under anesthesia forMore >

Just kidding … well, mostly. Whatever the reason, Lindsay Lohan received a lovely Christmas present when Dawn Holland dropped her battery allegation.
The ex-Betty Ford employee who got into an altercation with the troubled star, who she accused of attacking her, is letting the case against Lohan go.
HO, HO, HO: Lindsay’s Christmas season is now more cheerful.
“Dawn will not continue to press charges against Lindsay, nor will she be assisting any further in the investigation or prosecution,” her attorney said.
“A crime has quite simply not been committed by Ms.More >
(HMG Celebrity News) – In a very abrupt about face, the ex-Betty Ford staffer Dawn Holland, who claims Lindsay Lohan assaulted her last week will not only drop her criminal complaint, she’ll refuse to cooperate with authorities in their investigation. Holland’s lawyer, Keith Davidson, tells TMZ, “Dawn will not continue to press charges against Lindsay, nor will she be assisting any further in the investigation or prosecution.” Davidson says, “A crime has quite simply not been committed by Ms. Lohan.”

For the first time in recorded history, Justin Bieber and Charlie Sheen have something in common: each was cleared of recent, allegedly illegal action.
First, Canadian officials have determined that Bieber did not assault a fellow laser tag participant during a much-hyped incident in October.
“This investigation into the incident is now complete and no charges will be forwarded as the evidence collected [doesn't] support doing so,” Corporal Turley of the Richmond Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.
Justin Bieber and Charlie Sheen can both celebrate today. Hopefully in very differentMore >
Jenn Sterger has kept a low profile throughout the Brett Favre scandal. So far. That could change if she isn’t satisfied with the results of the investigation.
If the NFL doesn’t discipline Favre for the sexting and voicemails he allegedly sent to Jenn, the former Jets reporter may decide to go public with proof.
She has an “overabundance of evidence,” too, according to her manager.
Does Jenn Sterger have more evidence that Brett Favre harassed her? Like his status every single Sunday, that remains up in the air … at least for the moment.
Favre could get word any day now about potentialMore >
With 2010 drawing to a close, it is with much pride that THG unveils its 10 finalists for its prestigious, Fourth Annual Celebrity of the Year award.
These stars all gave us their best, their worst, their nude pics (sometimes) and their scandals (often). This month, THG honors that greatness.

It seems hard to believe the King of Pop, who passed away in 2009, might be bigger in death than he was in life, but MJ defies conventional wisdom.
Beyond the investigation into his death, there are side plots – the well being of hisMore >
(HMG Celebrity News)—-Five years after her disappearance, Dutch investigators are performing analysis on a jawbone reportedly found on the beach in Aruba to determine if it is human, and if so, if it could be connected to the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, CNN reports.
