The Dallas Mavericks continued to stick it to the Miami Heat last night even AFTER they won the NBA Championship… partying at the same place LeBron’s mom got arrested back in April.

NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, owner Mark Cuban, several other Mavs, and a few celebs like Lil Wayne and Trey Songz … celebrated at LIV nightclub in the swanky Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel — where just two months ago, Gloria James was arrested for slapping a valet.

To the victors, go the spoils. 



Kim K to Bret Lockett — Here Comes the Lawsuit!

Filed under: Bret Lockett, Kim Kardashian, Celebrity Justice

Bret Lockett might finally get that face-to-face meeting with Kim Kardashian he always wanted — but it looks like it’s going to go down … in a courtroom!

Sources close to Kim K tell TMZ … her lawyers are drafting a defamation lawsuit against Lockett and will file it as early as Monday morning.

Kim has maintained all along she never met Bret — despite his claims they had a “physical relationship.” Harvey hammered Lockett on TMZ Live last week, asking him when and where he met Kim, but Lockett refused to say.  Nevertheless, he insisted he and Kim had hooked up this year, after she starting dating Kris Humphries.

But on Friday, Lockett finally fessed up on “Showbiz Tonight” … admitting he never actually met Kim.

0611_bret_lockett_video_small_2We’re told Kim’s lawyers fired off a letter to Lockett in the last few days, telling him to hang on to the so-called “evidence” he has on his “affair” with Kim — because he’ll need to produce it in court.

What a jerk.



Nic Cage — The Man Hunt for Weston

Filed under: Weston Cage, Nicolas Cage, Fights, Nurse!

Weston Cage had gone missing last week in the hours before he went off the hinges and had to be subdued by cops … and the guy who had to beat him down had been sent by Nic Cage to find him.


The one-man search party was 39-year-old Kevin Villegas (left) — who worked as an assistant for Nic Cage for the past 5 years. We’re told Kevin’s primary responsibility was looking after Weston.

But Tuesday, when Weston went M.I.A — sources tell us Nic dispatched Kevin to track down the 21-year-old and bring him home. Kevin quickly located his target in L.A., but we’re told, Weston was resistant and aggressive — even threatening to rip of Kevin’s “Christian f**king head.”

0612_weston_fight_video_smallSources tell us Kevin immediately reported the situation to Nic … who instructed Kevin to call 911. When Weston realized cops were on the way he flipped out and attacked Kevin with the roundhouse kick.

We’re told Kevin — who served with the U.S. military — feared for his life because Weston is a highly-trained fighter … and attacked Cage with a flurry of punches.

Cops came and Weston was hospitalized for a mental evaluation. Weston says he may press charges.

Filed under: Lindsay Lohan, Celebrity Justice

Lindsay Lohan hasn’t paid her settlement in a lawsuit with a photographer … according to the photog who’s now turning up the heat to get his money.

As TMZ first reported, a photog named Scott Nathan sued Lindsay’s clothing line, 6126, claiming he was never paid for his work.

The lawsuit settled for an undisclosed amount back in December — and according to docs filed last week, 6126 was supposed to making payments beginning in March … but so far — zilch. Now Nathan is asking a judge for an order to enforce the settlement — attaching bank accounts, etc.

A rep for Lindsay tells TMZ, “We don’t comment on any pending legal situations with third parties.”

Ja Rule‘s family will not go BROKE during his stint in the pokey — this according to his wife … who insists Ja personally took care of their financial situation before he checked into prison Wednesday.

Ja’s wife Aisha tells TMZ, “He did leave us well off. All of the rumors about Ja being broke are far from true.”

Aisha adds, “Ja made sure … that me and my kids wouldn’t need anything as far as income goes. He planned well before he went in.”

“We won’t be bad … even for a little bit — that was Ja’s first priority as a man who makes sure family comes first.”

Ja was sentenced to serve two years in a NY state prison stemming from a gun-related arrest back in 2007.
