Michael’s Son Faces 10 Years In Prison

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Michael Douglas and current wife Catherine Zeta-Jones seem to be very happy raising their brood of little ones, but the actor’s heart must be breaking for his oldest child. Cameron Douglas, Michael’s son by his first marriage to Diandra Luker, has plead guilty to two felony drug charges and is looking at a minimum sentence of 10 years. Cameron was arrested last year following a three-year investigation by the DEA. Why would the son of such a privileged family turn to dealing drugs? Whatever his reasons, this story is very sad.

Charlie Called From Jail – Collect

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Charlie Sheen’s ex Denise Richards was on “Oprah” today, and revealed some details about his Christmas Day arrest in Aspen for assaulting current wife Brooke Mueller. The mom of two girls by the actor said, “I got a call on Christmas—a collect call from Charlie, “ who told his ex he “didn’t want the day to go by without him saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to the girls.” Denise insisted, “Charlie and I are in a great place right now,” but later added, “I can’t control what Charlie does. Keep my girls safe, that is my goal.”

Given the beating she received from the media during her bitter divorce from the star, Denise could be forgiven for gloating over his current problems, but she simply stated, “It’s sad, this is a sad situation.” It’s hard to argue with that—what could be sadder than getting a call from your dad in jail on Christmas?

Jackson’s Doc To Be Charged

Friday, January 8th, 2010

The doctor who was supposed to be taking care of Michael Jackson in his final days is now facing prosecution for his death. A source revealed to the AP that prosecutors in L.A. have almost concluded their investigation and will go for an indictment against Dr. Conrad Murray on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

A coroner has ruled that Jackson’s death was a homicide caused by the anesthetic Propufol, which Murray had injected into the singer to induce sleep. A conviction for involuntary manslaughter can carry a sentence of two to four years, which is why the doc has already hired attorney-to-the-stars J. Michael Flanagan.

Octo-Mom’s Doc Sued For Negligence

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Maybe other physicians better think twice before impregnating their patients with a litter. The office of California’s Attorney General has filed papers against Dr. Michael Kamrava, who treated Octo-mom Nadya Suleman, accusing him of “gross negligence, repeated negligent acts, and for keeping inadequate records.” The doctor performed the implants that allowed the unemployed single mom to give birth to 14 children, including octuplets born a year ago.

The D.A. also claims Kamrava transferred “a number of blastocyst embryos far in excess of ASRM recommendation and beyond the reasonable judgment of any treating physician,” and aims to yank his license. Octo-Mom is not mentioned by name in the complaint, but it does cite a patient who fits her profile and has the initials “N.S.” It will be very interesting to see how this case plays out in the California courts.

Did Courtney Abuse Her Daughter?

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

12-16-09CL

Courtney Love has a very long rap sheet for acts of violence going back nearly 15 years, so it’s not at all surprising that domestic violence may have played a part in her losing custody of her daughter Frances Bean Cobain for the second time. Cobain was also granted a restraining order against her rocker mom.

TMZ has revealed that court documents in the legal case against Love have been sealed because they relate “to a minor and allegations of domestic violence.” There are no more details, except that the documents pertain to the teen’s medical records. Since Courtney has a history of violently attacking others as well as drug abuse and other erratic behavior, it certainly wouldn’t be out of character for her to turn her rage on anyone who aroused her anger.

This is one celeb who didn’t just get on the crazy train lately—Courtney boarded it back in the early 90s and has been riding it ever since.
