Michael Lohan is livid over a new rumor surrounding him.

How he can even keep them all straight, with all the shady things he does and is accused of, we don't know. But this one is particularly offensive to him.

His ex-girlfriend, Erin Muller, alleges in legal documents filed this week that Michael was abusive quite a lot, and once even kicked her in the vagina.

She also detailed several other instances of verbal and physical abuse over a span of a year or so. Dude treated her like garbage 24-7, essentially.

M-Lo says these allegations are "patently untrue."

Mike and Erin in pre-vadge-punting times.

Michael’s lawyer says Erin Muller made everything up after he "terminated" their engagement. Yes, she at one point agreed to marry Michael Lohan.

His legal team also says her story is “a desperate attempt to dismiss the allegations against her.” Michael has been suing his ex for harassment.

Erin first made the claims in documents filed yesterday in New York as she was attempting to get Michael’s harassment suit against her dropped.

She also has an active restraining order out against Michael, which the father of Lindsay Lohan violated and was recently thrown in jail for.

Ten days following the shocking death of Brittany Murphy at the age of 32, the Los Angeles County Coroner has released her death certificate.

It solves no mysteries, but is merely a formality. Brittany died December 20 after suffering cardiac arrest in her her home. Beyond that is unclear.

The actress' cause of death is listed on the document as "deferred," as we reported late last week when her autopsy results were first released.

It may take four to six weeks for toxicology, histiological and neurological test results to become available and thus determine the true cause.

We wish the family of Brittany Murphy the best.

Tayebe Pajooh, the 32-year-old actress' cousin, is listed on the certificate as the informant; Pajooh provided the mortuary with information on her late cousin.

One surprise: the death certificate fails to name Murphy's estranged father, Angelo Bertolotti. Instead, the document lists Murphy's father as "Unknown."

Bertolotti divorced Sharon Murphy, Brittany's mom, when Brit was two, and spent time in a prison on drug charges. He did not attend her funeral service.

Sharon, who was with her when she died, inherits Brittany's estate as per the star's will. Her last will was written before she wed Simon Monjack in 2007.

Ed Hardy t-shirts, diamond earrings and too much hair products have become the signature look of Jon Gosselin the hit MTV reality show Jersey Shore.

"My personal style is fresh to death," says Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. "You know the produce section, like where the food is fresh? That's my style."

That's one of the lamest Jersey Shore quotes we've ever heard, and it didn't even take place on the show. Hey, at least the tools are being themselves.

Last week, celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style embared on the difficult task of giving these up-and-coming reality stars a newer, classier image ...

Jersey Shore Crew

The gang was invited to ditch the shore and step onto the red carpet at one of NYC's most exclusive clubs, Greenhouse, with its dress-your-best policy.

There, they modeled some iconic Hollywood looks of recent years and they pulled it off like the pros - including Kim Kardashian - they were emulating.

"I like to walk into the room and have everyone notice what I'm wearing," says Nicole Polizzi, also known as the overly tanned and ridiculous Snooki.

That's what always happens, Snooks. But not for the reason you think.

In perhaps the craziest piece of Tiger Woods gossip to date, a respected sportswriter is claiming that the world's #1 golfer underwent reconstructive surgery.

After having his face broken by a golf club-wielding wife.

Furman Bisher cites, on his personal blog, inside sources telling him Tiger suffered a broken cheekbone and almost had his two front teeth knocked out.

He writes that the injuries are the real reason Woods has gone AWOL since his fight with Elin Woods and subsequent car crash right after Thanksgiving.

Bisher says a trustworthy journalist colleague sent him this information on Tiger, which he posted online to "present the picture in its clearest form."

However, the whole thing smells a bit like a hoax to us.

FORE: Did Elin Woods smash Tiger's cheating face with a 9-iron?

Don't get us wrong, we would not be surprised at all if Elin teed off on Tiger's face after what he pulled. But this scenario would be hard to conceal.

No police reports suggested Tiger's injuries were severe. Had they been, his wife likely wouldn't have been let off the hook after their investigation.

Moreover, for Tiger freaking Woods to undergo surgery without anyone knowing, during a global media firestorm no less, seems dubious at best.

But who knows. Bisher is considered one of the top golf writers, and goes into great detail about the attack and "cover up" that followed Tiger's crash.

His account states that Elin Woods drilled her husband in the face with a 9-iron after confronting him over text messages from Rachel Uchitel."

"At one point Tiger turned away to look at the TV, and as he turned back, Elin hit him on the right side of the face with the head of a 9-iron," he writes.

"When she struck Tiger, she made a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose (causing his nose to bruise some), and virtually knocking two of his upper teeth out, and breaking the bone on the upper right side."

Uchitel She's a Skank

MISTRESS #1: Rachel Uchitel's affair with Tiger Woods may or may not have led to a face-breaking, but it definitely shattered the golfer's formerly pristine reputation.

"Tiger ran scared as hell out of the house (which is why he had on no shoes) with Elin swinging the golf club wildly throughout the hallway to the garage."

Wow.

The source claims the first doctor Woods saw knows a cosmetic dentist and plastic surgeon in Phoenix who could make Tiger look as if nothing happened.

The Friday after Tiger was released from the hospital, he didn't return home; he boarded a private plane for Phoenix, where he stayed until last Wednesday.

Lastly, the insider says reports of Tiger and Rachel still hitting it are bogus, and while Elin has retained a divorce attorney, she has not filed any papers.

Whether this is true remains to be seen, but it would help explain why:

  1. Tiger successfully vanished, doing so before the scandal broke.
  2. The police were unable to interview Tiger following the crash.
  3. Why he fled his own house in such a daze that he hit a tree.
  4. Why he announced he is taking an indefinite break from golf.

What do you think of this story? True or tabloid trash?

Denying reports that he staged a break-in at his New York apartment, Jon Gosselin was there for about one minute before leaving to report it, he says.

"He is going to be clocked by that surveillance camera going into his building," his loudmouth lawyer, Mark Heller, said, noting that he left immediately.

Sixty seconds after Jon Gosselin went in, “he comes down to talk to management. It’s all on tape. He couldn’t have done that damage in 60 seconds."

His ex-girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, has been questioned by police in connection with the Saturday incident and her parents have also spoken to cops.

Hailey moved out last week of the apartment they shared, and her attorney says she did remove items, including a TV, but that the items were hers.

That doesn't explain the place getting trashed, Jon's clothes getting slashed, the valuables being smashed, or word "cheater" carved into the bed.

WILD THING: Did Hailey Glassman go nuts on Jon Gosselin's apartment?

Some of Jon’s clothing was slashed, a Ming vase was broken and a note bearing the name Hailey Glassman was speared to the dresser with a knife.

Hailey’s lawyer says she had nothing to do with it, but Heller insists she did, and "the forensics evidence will back up" that she's a knife-wielding maniac.

Driving home his point, he said: She (Hailey) is looking at felony charges in my opinion ... and if she is convicted she is definitely doing jail time."

“I mean taking a butcher knife and cutting expensive items, breaking a family heirloom ...  give me a break. I don’t know how you can cut her slack."

Maybe not, but by the lack of charges being pressed against Hailey, the legal system is giving her the benefit of the doubt, at least for the time being.

You do have to wonder, though. If Jon didn't stage the vandalism, did someone else trash his place and attempt to frame her? Who else could get in?

Joe Francis has been named the Douche of the Decade by a prominent celebrity gossip site. He's cool with that - but not about Gawker calling him a rapist.

The Girls Gone Wild kingpin is vowing to sue the site for $10 million after it referred to him as "a rapist" while crowning him the winner of its recent poll.

Incidentally, Francis received 32 percent of the nearly 9,000 votes cast. We would have probably bet on a different douchebag, but Joe is very deserving.

"You messed with the wrong guy. No one makes up lies about me and gets away with it," an irate, douchey Francis e-mailed Gawker founder Nick Denton.

"I lost a $10 million deal as a direct result of you calling me 'a rapist.' You will be paying me every dime of that back and more! Are you mentally retarded?"

"Do your research first," the sleaze added. "I am coming at you harder than I ever went after anyone. I am going to wipe you off the grid! YOU ARE DONE!"

DOUCHE OF THE DECADE: In the end, there was little competition.

"You, Nick Denton, are truly the douche of the decade. Merry Xmas IDIOT!!!"

And with those words, Joe officially earned his Douche of the Decade crown.

Francis attached a shirtless pic of himself (above), adding, "I sent you an updated picture of how I look ... because you seem to be sexually obsessed with me."

Alright then.

Francis told Page Six that the Gawker line were directly responsible for him losing a $10 million distribution deal, as if that were even remotely possible.

"They used Wikipedia as their source. It's pathetic," said Francis, who has never been formally accused of rape (just tax evasion, woman-beating, etc).

Gawker managing editor Gabriel Snyder did not apologize, and said this in response to Joe's threats: "We wanted to retire the word 'douche' by crowning Joe Francis as its apotheosis, but it looks like he's determined to remain the standard-bearer."

Your move, Joe.

Copay for doctor's office visit to get checked for STDs? $20. Body shop work on the Escalade? $8,100. New 7-iron? $99. Potential net loss for sponsors? $12 billion.

Entertainment value for celebrity gossip sites? Priceless!

So it goes for the Tiger Woods, who's become a one-man stimulus package for gossip magazines and websites worldwide, but a sinkhole for his own sponsors.

According to a study by two economics professors, Woods' sponsors (those who haven't dumped him) are really feeling the fallout of his recent sex scandal.

Tiger may have cost the companies he endorses as much as $12 billion between the time he wrecked his SUV Thanksgiving night and now, they theorize.

Fittingly, that's about one billion for each of Tiger Woods' women!

A BIG WINNER: Well, for us. For Nike and Gatorade, he's the opposite.

Nike, Gatorade and EA Sports were hit hardest as a result of their carefully worded vows of support for the cheater extraordinaire, losing a total of $6 billion.

Just imagine if Tiger and Rachel Uchitel are really still together, which has been reported more than once in the past week or so. Better unload stock now!

Fortunately, Accenture managed to escape their Woods association with no negative financial effects to their company. Then again, they pulled Tiger's ads.

The question is, now that the shock value of Tiger's mistresses has started to fade a bit, will Woods be able to redeem and redefine his image? If so, how?

Unlike tens of thousands of Playgirl subscribers who flocked to see pictures of Levi Johnston nude, Bristol Palin wants nothing to do with her baby daddy.

A heated custody battle between Levi and Bristol is heating up after she petitioned for sole custody over their son Tripp, who just turned one yesterday.

Bristol: Dancer With the Stars

The request by Bristol Palin for sole custody was made public after a Superior Court judge ruled last week against keeping the court proceedings closed.

A temporary order authorized the use of pseudonyms while the court handled the request, as no good "could result to the child by an onslaught of media."

Levi Johnston pushed for open court proceedings - there's a shocker!

"I feel more comfortable in a public courtroom which will help everyone stay civil and be on their best behavior," the media whore said in a statement.

RNC-YA! Bristol dumped Levi shortly after the '08 campaign.

Levi is seeking shared custody and denies claims by Bristol Palin that he has been avoiding his parental responsibilities, according to multiple reports.

In addition to sole custody, Bristol requested child support and asked that Johnston's mother, Sherry, not be allowed unsupervised visits with Tripp.

Sherry Johnston was busted for dealing drugs earlier this year.

"The best interests of the child compel the conclusion that Bristol should be awarded 100 percent legal and physical custody of Tripp, with visitation rights in favor of Levi," Bristol's attorney Thomas V. Van Flein said in court papers.

Bristol and Johnston conveniently broke off their fake engagement, concocted to make Sarah Palin look less terrible during the 2008 presidential campaign after the news of Bristol's pregnancy broke, shortly after Tripp was born.

The guy accused of trying to blackmail David Letterman has offered to plead guilty in exchange for a one-year prison term, according to the New York Post.

Robert Halderman's lawyer, Gerald Shargel, denied knowing anything about an offer, saying: "There have been no plea negotiations. None whatsoever."

He would say that regardless, of course, and it's all a moot point until January, when Cyrus Vance Jr. takes over as Manhattan's new District Attorney.

A one-year term would be a far cry from the 15 he's facing.

Halderman stands accused of trying to shake down Letterman for $2 million by threatening to expose the TV star's series of sexual affairs with staffers.

Letterman admitted as much - and was blatantly honest in his on-air apology to fans, staffers and wife Regina Lasko - even breaking the story himself.

WHAT A RACKET: Halderman is accused of trying to shake down Letterman.

Prosecutors allege that Halderman dropped off a one-page "screenplay treatment" with Letterman's driver September 9. The proposed "story line" revolved around an intern-loving comedian whose sexy antics were about to be outed.

That plot appeared to make direct reference to Letterman's admitted affair with intern Stephanie Birkitt - also Halderman's ex-girlfriend - and others.

But instead of caving, Letterman went to war, contacting police and wiring his lawyer for a series of meet-ups with Halderman, who was later arrested.

He is free on $200,000 bail. Shargel has filed papers demanding dismissal of the charges, arguing that this was nothing but a "business transaction."

Prosecutors aren't buying that, though, saying that Halderman hatched the extortion plot with the screenplay nonsense as his intended cover stlory and admitted on tape that he resorted to the scheme because he needed the money.
