I know one shouldn’t focus on alliterative titles at a time like this, but…
Less than 24 hours before she is supposed to enter jail, Lindsay Lohan has a new problem: she doesn’t have someone to escort her to the courthouse Tuesday morning.
The last time the troubled actress appeared before Judge Marsha Revel, Shawn Chapman Holley was the lawyer fighting on Lindsay’s behalf. Unfortunately, Shawn (understandably) parted ways with Lohan after the sentencing.
Although Robert Shapiro - one of O.J. Simpson’s former attorneys - had been hired to handle Lilo’s appeal, he informed the judge late today that he is no longer representing his client. It’s not known why Shapiro made the last-minute decision, though it’s believed Lohan may not have fully cooperated with his requirements.

It’s looking a lot less like a hoax: Heidi Montag is filing for legal separation from Spencer Pratt.
The reality star has been spotted entering the Santa Monica Courthouse in California with papers in her hand earlier today. “It’s a legal separation. It’s all Heidi can do until a lawyer gets 100 per cent involved,” a source revealed.
Onlookers claim 23-year-old Heidi looked serious as she entered the courthouse and was without her usual makeup and hairstyling. In legal papers seen by TMZ, Heidi claims “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the separation.
The actress-and-singer initially went to the Malibu Courthouse to file the papers, but was told they did not deal with family cases and she would have to go to Santa Monica. Heidi recently revealed she was planning to have the “best summer” following her split from 26-year-old Pratt - who she married in a secret ceremony 14 months ago.
Writing on her Twitter page she said, “Laying out in the hot sun! Enjoying the beach. This is going to be the best summer of my life!!!!!!(sic)”

Prescription drugs were found close to Simon Monjack’s body.
The British screenwriter - whose wife Brittany Murphy died in December aged just 32 - was discovered “unresponsive” in the bedroom of his Hollywood home last night and Los Angeles coroners are currently investigating why the 39-year-old passed away.
Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said, “There were some prescription drugs found that belonged to Mr. Monjack, and we’ll have an ongoing investigation. Cause of death is pending, and there will be an autopsy after a day or so, and pending toxicology reports, we’ll be releasing the results after we get all those tests back. The family is devastated at this time, and it is under investigation.”
According to the coroner, Simon’s body was found in the master bedroom and there “were no illicit drugs location - just prescription medications,” though he declined to say what they were. Simon’s death will not be investigated by police as there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his passing.
After a weekend of hardcore partying in Cannes, Lindsay Lohan is back in the states and has been ordered to submit to random drug testing.
actress appeared in a Beverly Hills court today for a probation review hearing, where she was told by Judge Marsha Revel she can remain out on bail, but only if she abstains from drinking alcohol, wears a SCRAM bracelet - which monitors alcohol consumption - and attends at least one alcohol education class a week.
The judge also indicated the 23-year-old star must stay in the Los Angeles area, despite her being lined up to work on a movie in Texas. A formal hearing to determine if Lindsay has violated her probation - which she was placed on following her second driving under the influence (DUI) conviction in 2007 - has been scheduled for July 6.
If she is found in breach of the terms, Lindsay - who is expected to face at least five drug tests before then - could be jailed for 180 days. Lindsay was originally scheduled to appear in court last Thursday, but was stranded in Cannes, France, after claiming her passport had been stolen.
Looks like someone should’ve listened to Megan Fox’s flying advice.
Ashley Olsen‘s plane was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday.
The 23-year-old actress-and-designer was traveling from New York to Los Angeles with her boyfriend, The Hangover‘s Justin Bartha, when an electrical fire sparked in the cockpit, forcing the pilot to land the aircraft in Virginia.
Publicist Phil Lobel - who was a passenger on the plane - told ET Online the incident was a “harrowing experience,” as the fire had caused the windscreen to crack, which “obscured the pilot’s ability to conduct a visual landing.” Emergency crews met the plane on the runway, where they stabilized the situation before leading the passengers and crew to safety.
According to reports, the passengers - which also included Californication actress Pamela Adlon and Jersey Boys star Jarrod Spector - bonded and celebrated their safe landing once safely inside the airport. The group were rebooked onto flights to complete their journey this morning.
UPDATE: Ivanka Trump has just tweeted this message about the Celebrity Apprentice contestant: “My thoughts & prayers go out to Brett [sic] Michaels and his family. I wish him a very speedy recovery.”
Less than a week after telling fans that he “could have died” had it not been for an emergency appendectomy, singer Bret Michaels is currently being treated for a brain hemorrhage at an undisclosed location.
According to a report, the 47-year-old is listed in critical condition.
This latest medical development started late last night after the Celebrity Apprentice contestant complained of a massive headache. That’s when the bleeding at the base of Michael’s brain stem was discovered.
“After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation,” a source told People magazine.
After Bret’s appendectomy on April 12, the rocker was transferred to a rehabilitation facility that specializes in the care of diabetic patients. (Michaels has openly discussed his battle with diabetes.)
No word at this time what this situation might mean for the upcoming episodes of Celebrity Apprentice.

At the request of the LAPD, the L.A. County Coroner’s office will delay the release of Michael Jackson’s autopsy report. The Coroner’s office met today with officials from the L.A.

While speaking to NewsOne, Joe Jackson dropped a bombshell: Omer Bhatti is Michael Jackson’s child! It has been suspected and speculated since the early 1990s that Bhatti might be the natural-born child of Jackson, and now Joe has confirmed the gossip.
However highly unlikely it may seem that Bhatti could be Jackson’s child.
Anyway, Joe Jackson blithely responded, “Yes, I knew he had another son,” during his interview. “He looks like a Jackson, he acts like a Jackson, he can dance like a Jackson,” Joe continued, extolling Bhatti’s virtues.
