The L.A. County Coroner’s office wants to interview Taylor Armstrong about Russell Armstrong‘s death … TMZ has learned after placing several calls to the Coroner.

Lil Wayne SUED — ‘How to Love’ Beat Is STOLEN

Filed under: Lil Wayne, Celebrity Justice

Lil Wayne rapped on stolen property — at least according to another MC, who insists he’s the rightful owner of the beat behind Weezy’s “How to Love” … and now, he’s out for some legal vengeance.

Rapper Rich Rick (right) filed the lawsuit earlier this week in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2009 — including the beat that now appears on “How to Love” — from a group of rap producers called Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims the Drummer Boyz double-crossed him in November 2010 –  pitching the SAME beat to Lil Wayne … and Weezy acquired it in exchange for a 35% royalty agreement, eventually using the beat on “How to Love.”

The song’s a hit — and needless to say, Rick’s royally pissed … insisting the Drummer Boyz screwed him over.

Rick’s suing Weezy, the Drummer Boyz, and others for everything from breach of contract to fraud — demanding everything DB are entitled to under their agreement with Wayne … plus 10% interest.

Attempts to reach the Drummer Boyz were unsuccessful. Calls to Weezy’s camp weren’t returned.




‘OC Housewife’ RIPS Tabloid — I’m NOT Going Broke!

Filed under: Alexis Bellino, Celebrity Justice, Real Housewives

Alexis Bellino from “Real Housewives of Orange County” is out for justice — threatening a legal FIRESTORM … after a tabloid rag claimed she was going broke.

It’s all over an issue of In Touch Weekly that came out earlier this month — the cover of which shows a picture of Alexis, over the caption “Bankrupt!” … but it gets worse.

Inside the magazine, the article reads, “Bankrupt! Evicted! Foreclosed! Housewives Are Going Broke” — continuing, “After selling off her home at a fraction of its cost to avoid foreclosure, Alexis Bellino still refuses to admit she and her husband … have money troubles.”

But Alexis claims it’s all BS — and her lawyer fired off a nasty cease and desist letter on Thursday, demanding In Touch retract its “patent, malicious, and libelous comments.”

According to the letter, Alexis is “in great financial health” — and if In Touch doesn’t retract its comments … she’ll sue. So far, no word back from In Touch.

Esai Morales got himself a new hit over at Nickelodeon Studios this week … where the “Caprica” star allegedly smashed his Hummer into the back of another car.

According to an eye witness, Morales was driving on Sunset Blvd. on Wednesday when he crashed into a Saturn that was stopped at the time.

We’re told no one was injured in the wreck and the Saturn only sustained minor damage. The witness tells us she recognized Morales and tried to tell the other driver he’d just been hit by a celeb … but Esai told her to pipe down because, “He’ll think I’m rich.”

We’re told no cops were called and both sides exchanged info and parted amicably.

Suge Knight better be on his best behavior for the next three years — because the rap mogul just got sentenced to 36 months probation for driving on a suspended license.

As TMZ first reported, Suge’s badass black truck was impounded back in February — after cops cited Knight for driving on a bum license.

Suge pled no contest to the charge — and was given three years unsupervised probation.

It’s the second time the guy’s been nailed for driving on a suspended license — let’s hope he learns his lesson.
