Filed under: Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries, Tying The Knot, Exclusive Details, The Kardashians, Celebrity Justice

Kim Kardashian and her wedding posse of 460 were too loud for the neighbors … law enforcement tells us the residents were so pissed off over the noise, they called the cops.

We’re told several neighbors reached their limit at 11:30 PM and called the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department.  Deputies paid a visit to the ritzy estate where Kim’s bash was in full gear, and asked them to turn the music down, which they promptly did.

A Sheriff’s official tells TMZ … none of the neighbors wanted to sign an official complaint so no one was cited.

What’s unclear is if the music was live or canned — a bunch of singers and groups performed live, including Earth, Wind & Fire and Robin Thicke, and DJ’s like DJ Cassidy were spinning.

Filed under: Russell Armstrong, Taylor Armstrong, Real Housewives, Celebrity Justice

The doctor who performed surgery on Taylor Armstrong the night her husband Russell beat her did not report the incident to police … even though medical professionals must report suspected domestic abuse  … sources tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Taylor revealed to her “Real Housewives” cast mates that Russell beat her so badly in June, she ended up in the hospital with broken bones in her cheek.

Sources say the police never interviewed Taylor following the beating … something they would have done had there been a report of domestic violence.

We’re told the doctor who performed the surgery was NOT Adrienne Maloof‘s hubby, Dr. Paul Nassif.

In addition to the surgeon, the hospital staff also failed to report the incident.

$66,000 per song … that’s how much money Eminem reportedly made to perform at a U.K. music festival this weekend — and he performed roughly FIFTY songs!!!

Eminem hit the stage at the V Festival in England this weekend — a two night affair. According to the British tabloid The Sun, Slim Shady (pictured above at the festival) raked in a cool TWO MILLION pounds for the 2 nights of work … which translates to roughly $3.3 million.

Em reportedly performed for 90 minutes on both Saturday and Sunday night  — and was joined on stage by Rihanna … who is said to have received around $825,000 per night to perform as well.

Calls and emails to Em’s reps were not immediately returned.

Recovery, indeed.



Pregnant Hilary Duff Dumped from ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ Movie

Filed under: Hilary Duff, Movies

Hilary Duff
just learned a cold, hard lesson — Hollywood’s not hiring a lot of pregnant women to play legendary bank robbers … which is why she just got dropped from “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.”

Duff was supposed to play Bonnie Parker in the upcoming film … but sources involved in the production tell us they’re moving forward sans Hilary — a decision that was made right after Hil broke her baby news last week.

We’re told the director is already shopping for a new Bonnie, and the split was amicable. As one source put it, “Hilary won’t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.” Shooting is scheduled for this Fall.

If prego Duff isn’t cool with the switch this could be another HunterTylo situation — the actress who won a $4.8 million judgment when pregnancy cost her a “Melrose Place” role.

Hilary’s rep has not returned calls.

Side note: producers are also looking for a new Clyde due to scheduling conflicts with Kevin Zegers. We’re assuming he’s not pregnant.




Filed under: Dancing with the Stars, Reality TV

Dancing with the Stars” is getting a MASSIVE upgrade this season — and TMZ has learned … the entire layout of the set will be changed … to the tune of $3 MILLION!

Sources tell us … the COOLEST change will affect the audience … because producers are swapping out the boring bleacher seats for a TRIPLE-TIERED balcony-styled arrangement … kinda like where the old grumpy guys sit on “The Muppets.”

Another cool change — the massive staircase in the middle of the stage will have the ability to SPLIT into TWO halves … which will reveal the orchestra pit.

As for the dance floor … which was basically hardwood planks placed on the ground … it will NOW be an elevated PLATFORM … so if the stars fall over the edge, it could REALLY hurt.

When called for comment, a rep for the show told TMZ … producers are “very excited” about the new changes.
