Oksana Grigorieva asked judge to make Mel Gibson pay for her PR

It seems Oksana Grigorieva racked up $84.000 in PR expenses and certain unpaid legal fees.

TMZ found out that Oksana felt hiring PR reps was the only way counter someone as big and powerful as Mel Gibson. Oksana – who insists she didn’t sell the tapes – felt she was getting trashed in the media.

Oksana wants Judge Scott Gordon in the custody/child support case, to clear the $84.000 debt, according to sources.

But the judge would never award money for PR expenses. Aside from legal fees, Judge Gordon would adjust the existing agreement – $5,000 a month plus the house – only based on the needs of baby Lucia.

Oksana Grigorieva was asking the judge to determin Mel Gibson to pay much more than $5000 for her monthly child support. She wants more than $40,000.

It seems the judge has yet to rule on the request.

Is Madonna “retiring” for $1 billion?

This is serious money, but we’ll have to see if these rumors come to be true.

According to these rumors, the singer will sign a five-years contract and will have concerts regularly in the world capital of gambling. Moreover, such contracts have proven to be extremely profitable for artists like Celine Dion, Cher or Elton John.

Plus, such an agreement would place her 3rd among the richest women in showbiz. No worries, for even now she’s not doing bad, being in the fourth place, after Oprah Winfrey, JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels and Martha Stewart.

Many would say you have to be crazy not to be tempted by such a proposal, but we find hard to believe that Madonna would give up the world tours, especially now, when she wants to show the world that her age hasn’t stop her doing what she does for over 20 years!

And still, many other stars would “retire” for $1 billion.

Oksana Grigorieva feels “harassed” by Mel Gibson’s lawyers

Oksana Grigorieva is irritated by the fact that Mel Gibson’s lawyers have insinuated that she would have spent Gibson’s money, during a trip to Moscow. Instead, Oksana claims that she had money for assisting victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

According to TMZ, Grigorieva’s finance situation is pretty low, Oksana claiming that Gibson hasn’t provided any money.

Gibson’s lawyers spent some time asking her about the trip in April, where she performed a charity concert to help victims of Chernobyl.

According to TMZ journalists, Oksana felt “harassed” and thinks that Gibson’s lawyers acted “nasty.”

Oksana insisted that she didn’t receive any money from the two concerts, sponsored by the Chernobyl’s Children’s Project International and the Grant A Life Foundation — which raised money for 50 kids in need of heart surgery.

Sources say that the deputies will investigate also the accusations that Oksana had made false statements. Oksana representative was unavailable for comment.

Oksana Grigorieva is greedy, refusing $15 mil deal

Lawyers for Mel and Oksana worked out a financial deal for Oksana – she would get a total of $15 mil, which included child support, a house and other assets.

All she had to do is to give back the “evidence”, one source say. The “evidence” includes the Mel Gibson tapes, which Oksana’s lawyers played parts of for Mel’s lawyers.

A source tells TMZ: “The tapes loomed large … the word ‘tapes’ was never used in the agreement, but it was central to the deal.”

Mel never paid Oksana under the deal because the short form didn’t spell out the specifics of payment and Oksana refused to sign the longer agreement which contained the details.

But Oksana recorded the conversations without Mel’s knowledge. In California, if a person isn’t told their conversation is being recorded, it is not admissible in court.

There are exceptions – notably, if Oksana reasonably believed the conversation related to the commission of any felony of violence, she could make the recording without Mel’s permission.

However, Mel’s lawyers will use Oksana’s text messages to try and prove it was just a money grab, which would make the recordings inadmissible in both the custody case and any possible criminal case.

Sources connected with Oksana say if she was motivated by money she would not have rejected Mel’s $15 million settlement.

Michael Jackson was murdered for money, says LaToya Jackson

She said: “He was murdered for his catalogue and they knew that.” Tomorrow, 25 June 2010, fans all over the world will commemorate one year since Michael Jackson died.

After an analyze of the royalties accumulated during a year, the Jackson estate earned $1 billion (£677 million). “Personally I think it is a slap in the face, not just to Michael but to the entire family. It’s totally unfair, it’s wrong and it was not an accident”, she said in other interview.

“You must remember from the day that I found out that Michael was no longer with us, when my mother screamed ‘he’s dead’ on the phone, I just went into this, ‘Who did it?”‘, she added.

Micheal’s brother, Jermaine, said that if Michael would have converted to Islam he might be alive today. “I felt that if Michael would have embraced Islam he would still be here today,” the former Jackson 5 member told the BBC World Service.

The life of the Jackson family after Michael’s death had been “tough”. “We’ll never get over it. There aren’t no words to describe the feeling, we are just learning to live with it.”

“The love that they are giving my brother now he is dead is the love they should have shown him when he was alive.”

Lindsay Lohan has no money

It seems that the actress is so broke that she can’t even pay her rent on time.

LiLo was two months behind in rent and her landlord sent her a legal notice to pay or get out. She just paid her landlord $23,000 to become current.

Rumors also say that she can’t get any work because of her various substance abuse issues and that she will die soon if she doesn’t get help and that her mom, Dina, is enabling her daughter by insisting Lindsay is fine.

Not to say that recently sources told that reports claimed Lindsay’s obituary is being pre-written by several media organizations.

No money for Anna Nicole Smith’s heir

It also seems that after a 15-year battle over the estimated $1.6 billion fortune left by Texan J. Howard Marshall, the law sided with his late son, Pierce.

In consequence, Smith’s only surviving heir, her 3-year-old daughter Danielyn, will get nothing, lawyers for Marshall said.

“It is an instruction that the case is over, and that E. Pierce Marshall’s estate wins. Hopefully, this will be the end of it,” Eric Brunstad, who represented the Marshall estate, told Reuters.

Anna Nicole married oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall in 1994 when she was a 26-year-old topless dancer in Houston and he was 89.

Marshall died a little over a year later, triggering a bitter battle over his fortune between the former Playboy model and his son, Pierce, who died in 2006.

Smith died of a drug overdose in 2007 and was survived by Danielyn, who was fathered by photographer Larry Birkhead.

The first photo camera in the world estimated to € 700.000

Valuables are sold for heavy money, and this camera has absolutely nothing to do with numerous kitsch that mimic art in the age of technology. We present the first camera produced on a large scale. It was designed in 1839 by Louis-Jacques-Mande Daguerre (hence the name of the Giroux Daguerreotype), and on May 29 will be put up for auction.

Starting price is 200,000 Euros. It is estimated that the battle waged with enthusiasm by people to raise the bar somewhere in the 700,000 Euro and to make this camera not only first but also the most expensive camera ever sold.

The camera is in excellent condition and can still be used if you follow the accompanying instructions. Focusing is made by opening interior box from the front lens, and the exposure time required to immortalize a scene lasts between three and 30 minutes. Of course, this matter doesn’t count al all. It’s like you get to race with a Japanese train, you being in the first locomotive ever built. It all depends on taste. Some would like to be in a Japanese train, while others would be glad to make contact with almost priceless things entered into history.
