The former couple are at war over the ‘In the Air Tonight’ singer’s Miami estate and on Wednesday (02.12.20), their lawyers appeared for a hearing via Zoom to discuss the “scandalous” allegations Orianne recently made, including that the 69-year-old musician rarely washed and was impotent.

Phil’s lawyer Brandon Carrington said: “These are outrageous statements that I’m not going to repeat.”

He insisted the allegations were irrelevant to the legal battle over the house and requested they be struck with prejudice, which the judge agreed to.

The judge also ruled that Orianne should sit for a deposition, but it is unlikely that will take place in January.

The ‘Another Day in Paradise’ hitmaker and his team had previously alleged his ex-wife had made the claims in an attempt

Erika Jayne’s divorce is a ‘sham’ to protect couple’s money, lawsuit says

“Real Housewives” star Erika Jayne and her estranged husband, Tom Girardi, are being sued in federal court for fraud and embezzlement by class action firm Edelson P.C.

The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday in the Northern District of Illinois by law firm Edelson PC, alleges Girardi and his law firm, Girardi Keese, embezzled millions of dollars that were intended to go to the surviving relatives of the Lion Air 610 plane crash. The Boeing 737 MAX crashed shortly after taking off from Jakarta on Oct. 29, 2018, killing all 189 passengers and crew members.

Girardi and his firm, which have earned billions of dollars in settlements for clients, “are on the verge of financial collapse and locked in a downward spiral of mounting debts and dwindling funds,” according to the lawsuit.

The documents characterize Girardi and Jayne as being obsessed with maintaining their celebrity status and projecting “a public

In October 2019, Dedrek Finley accused the Men in Black actress and three of her family members of discriminating against him because he’s transgender, according to court documents obtained by E! News. Additionally, he accused them of battery, assault, emotional distress and several other allegations.

This lawsuit became a subject of controversy when The Mandalorian producers confirmed she’d portray Ahsoka Tano, a fan favorite character who originally appeared in the popular cartoon Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She made her first appearance in the Disney+ series last week.

Now, she tells Vanity Fair that if she were a fan, she too would “be concerned” after learning of her involvement in the lawsuit. However, the star says that “the truth is

Celine Dion Reacts to Losing Lawsuit with Agent: ‘I Feel Betrayed’

Celine Dion has released a statement in response to the ruling that she owes commissions to ICM Partners and partner Rob Prinz for her concert deal with AEG.

The California Labor Commission has ruled that Celine must pay commissions on the deal, which was reached in 2017 at a value of $500 million. ICM Partners, her former agency, negotiated the deal and they sued her in 2019 for unpaid commissions.

Deadline reports that the “ruling states that ICM Partners is due 1.5% of the gross compensation earned or received from all Las Vegas residency performances, 3% of all touring performances and 1.5% from performances in her home province of Quebec.”

Celine and her attorney have both spoken out with statements, with her lawyer committing to appealing the decision and taking the lawsuit to a jury.

Celine Dion Loses Lawsuit Over Unpaid Commission With ICM

The California Labor Commissioner has upheld the contract between talent agency ICM Partners and former client Celine Dion following a dispute over unpaid commission after ICM and the singer parted ways last year.

Dion signed a multi-year touring and performing contract in 2017 that was reportedly worth $500 million, but was dropped by ICM and her longtime representative Rob Prinz in 2019 after failing to pay commission. ICM Partners sued the singer to receive the alleged unpaid funds, and ICM announced on Wednesday that the Labor Commissioner ruled in the company’s favor.

“Although the Omnibus Agreement (Dion’s agreement with AEG negotiated by ICM and Prinz) is valued at a staggering half a billion dollars, the Labor Commissioner has dealt with similar matters, albeit not in this monetary range. In similar fact patterns, we have consistently applied the rule stating, “[a] talent agency is generally entitled to receive post termination commissions

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s Google and the U.S. Justice Department have failed to reach agreement over a protective order for third parties like Microsoft that provided data to the government for its lawsuit against the search and advertising giant.

Google is pressing for two in-house attorneys to have access to the confidential data while the Justice Department and state attorneys general involved in the lawsuit have disagreed, Google said in a court filing on Friday.

Google stated it needed the information to prepare an effective defense. It offered to ensure that any confidential information would be made available solely to two in-house attorneys at the offices of Google’s outside counsel or in another secure manner, adding that it would promptly report any disclosure.
