Michael Jackson spent his final hours in Dr. Conrad Murray's bedroom. In his personal physician's bed, as a matter of fact, investigators are saying.

Law enforcement sources say Jackson did not want people going in and out of his room, so he used Murray's bedroom when he received his IV of Propofol.

Dr. Conrad Murray administered the powerful anesthesia to Jackson - as he was doing almost nightly - hours before he died, as the singer lay in his bed.

Emergency workers found an IV stand, an empty IV bag and oxygen tanks in Murray's room. Cops found a secret stash of Propofol and other drugs hidden in a closet connected to Murray's room in their searches after Michael passed away.

At some point, Dr. Conrad Murray left the room when Jackson was receiving an IV drip of Propofol and the doctor may have even fallen asleep. Cops believe by the time he woke, Michael Jackson's heart may have already stopped beating.

Dr. Murray was not in Jackson's house during the day. He would show up in the evening and leave in the morning. Law enforcement believes the doc may have regularly gone there at night to administer Propofol via IV so he could sleep.

Law enforcement officials believe that Dr. Conrad Murray may have discovered Michael Jackson around 9 a.m. on June 25 the day of the singer's death.

One theory cops are working on in their massive manslaughter investigation is that after discovering Jackson either in distress or dead, Dr. Murray called two employees in Houston and told them to remove boxes from his storage unit.

Both women - LaQuisha Middleton and her sister, LaQuanda Price - say Dr. Murray did not call them, but police think that's dubious. The stories of these women conflict. One says a box of needles was retrieved; the other, a chair.

As for what may have been in the boxes, law enforcement is investigating whether Dr. Murray had Propofol delivered to his Houston medical office ... possibly put in his storage unit ... and then FedEx'd to Los Angeles as needed.

Dr. Conrad Murray rented the storage unit April 1 and staff went back on four different occasions before Jackson's death. Law enforcement remains on the hunt for evidence of Propofol when they searched Dr. Conrad Murray's home and offices.

According to the search warrants, authorities were looking for, among other things, "records, shipping orders, distribution lists, use records relating to the purchase, transfer, receiving, ordering, delivery and storage of PROPOFOL."

The warrant also stated officials were looking to prove a number of alleged violations, including "prescribing to an addict" and "excessive prescribing."

With Jon and Kate Plus 8 set to return to TLC Monday, will some of the new people in the recently-separated Gosselins’ lives be featured on the show?

“As far as new people that may be cycling into Jon and Kate’s lives, we’re taking it on a case-by-case basis,” said TLC General Manager Eileen O’Neill.

But we will see Kate's bikini body (the best revenge) as well as the hilarity that is “Jon struggling in the kitchen trying to make pizza for his kids.”

Zzz. We want Hailey Glassman cat fights! Instead, it looks like we'll get:

“You’ll see what its like when Kate has to put a tent up for the first time for her kids, who love to camp in their backyard. Then Kate gets a little advice from her daughter, who doesn’t think she does it quite as well as dad,” O'Neill adds.

In the past two weeks alone, Jon Gosselin has said his "heart is with Hailey," that he is "in a relationship with Kate Major" and that he is “single - per se,” and that, “I don’t want to introduce anyone [I'm dating] to my kids.”

Sooner or later, these contradictory statements have to backfire. We just hope it's televised when that happens. Here's Jon back at home yesterday ...

Given that the show has basically become Jon and Kate Separ8, one wonders how long TLC can keep airing the show and pretending everything is normal. We'll find out!

Who sucks worse?

Contrary to reports that he knocked up other people, aspiring actress and model Samantha Burke, 24, is the mother of Jude Law's fourth child, her lawyer says.

Sorry, Kayleen McAdams. Or congratulations?

Suri With Katie

"Samantha Burke can confirm that she did in fact have a relationship with Mr. Law and that she has informed Mr. Law that she is expecting his child later this fall," Burke's attorney, who is not identified, said in a statement to TMZ.

"Since informing Mr. Law of the pregnancy, he has been nothing but responsive and supportive of Ms. Burke and the pregnancy."

A Florida friend of Burke, who is based in Florida, reports that the model told her she was "pregnant from Jude Law." Law's rep declined comment.

On Wednesday, the actor, who has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost, announced he was expecting a fourth child with an unidentified ex-lover.

It's the latest round of scandalous activity for the star, who was also engaged to Sienna Miller before he was caught doing his children's nanny.

Jude Law will appear in Hamlet on Broadway in October, and will star with Robert Downey Jr. in the film Sherlock Holmes opening on Christmas Day.

Here are a few more Samantha Burke pictures TMZ dug up ...

As you can see, Florida model Samantha Burke appears to be holding onto some tools in this undated photo. It appears she was later knocked up by one.

It was a match made in heaven. Or at least Nashville.

The big day began with only a picnic – although the blindfold may have tipped off Holly Williams, who was going to be proposed to by beau Chris Coleman.

The granddaughter of music legend Hank Williams was escorted to Leipers Fork, Tenn, and treated to a picnic with wine and cheese, followed by a hike.

That's when Coleman decided to dig for Civil War relics.

"I dug up a beautiful wooden box with my favorite love quote on it," Holly Williams, 28, recalled, "and the engagement date carved in roman numerals."

"He wood-burned the letters onto the box! He got on one knee and I opened the box, underneath the flowers and basil were the rings."

A gushing Williams called it "a perfect engagement." She is currently on tour promoting her sophomore album Here With Me. Congrats to the pair!

When Gossip Girl star Jessica Szohr turned up at a Louis Vuitton party, we got our first glimpse of Hilary Duff’s new Femme for DKNY Jeans line.

Combining Hilary’s personal style and the individuality of New York - the inspiration behind her designs - the Femme for DKNY Jeans fall '09 ads were shot on the Manhattan streets by Scott Schuman, of the style blog The Sartorialist.

With Hilary Duff joining the NYC-set series this fall, what better theme than the gritty and glam streets of the Big Apple for her latest venture?

Staring at a murder charge, the man who allegedly struck and killed former American Idol contestant Alexis Cohen may be putting the blame on her.

The lawyer for 24-year-old Daniel Bark says his client plans to plead not guilty across the board to the charges of vehicular homicide, aggravated manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and evading police on the New Jersey shore.

The kicker? Attorney Daniel Glassman (no relation to Hailey Glassman) tells E! News Cohen may have been boozing it up right before she was killed.

"So far, the information that's been provided by the prosecutor's office has been all one-sided in respect to the allegations against my client," he says.

"There's no specifics on witnesses, where the victim was found, the nature of the impact of the car ... and we don't know what the victim's physical condition was before the accident so it's a little premature to discuss."

Specifically, Glassman says his team is looking at the "mechanics" of the incident, which began when Daniel Bark allegedly struck a parked car with his 2005 Mitsubishi Galant and then ran down Alexis Cohen, 25, while trying to flee the cops.

Daniel Bark is looking at potentially mitigating factors such as:

  • What the lighting was like at the accident's time of 4 a.m.
  • Whether or not she accidentally stepped in front of his car.
  • Whether the American Idol castoff's drinking at a local watering hole may have somehow contributed to the tragedy.

While Glassman confirms Bark had a prior DUI dating back to 2004, the lawyer was quick to note that allegations his client are "without substance of fact."

Glassman also notes that potential lawsuits are in the works.

"There are three parallel investigations," he said. "One from prosecutors, two from civil attorneys with respect to the bars involved and our defense strategy in relation to the mechanics of how the accident happened."

On behalf of Daniel Bark, who's currently being held on a suicide watch in Ocean County Jail on $250,000 bail, Daniel Glassman expressed condolences to the family of Alexis Cohen, calling it a "horrible situation."

Let this be a lesson to all you child stars out there. Film one disgusting sex tape when you grow up and People magazine will crop you out of old photos.

That's what happened to Dustin Diamond, as the celebrity news publication has stolen Jimmy Fallon's idea and paying tribute to Saved by the Bell cast.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen? Done and done. DD? Not so much.

Check out what they've done to poor Screech, pretending he didn't even exist as they mark the 20th anniversary of the former Saturday morning staple ...

Dustin Cropped Out

AIRBRUSHED OUT: Screech gets the Back to the Future treatment.

Diamond may have the last laugh though. Over the course of the past year he penned a tell-all book about life on the teen TV show’s set, a book which promised “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

We don't know if that's awesome or gross. Probably somewhere in between.

In any case, the scandalous book, originally set to be published by Gotham Books, was dropped from that imprint because, well, come on, who's gonna buy a freaking Dustin Diamond tell-all, honestly. We're in a recession, people.

Fortunately, those SBTB diehards who can't live without the inside Jesse Spano-A.C. Slater make-out sessions will still be able to get their hands on it, thanks to the Canadian publisher Transit, which will release it in September.

SCREECHED OUT: People Magazine is not a fan of Double-D.

Earlier today, Jude Law announced that he's expecting his fourth child this year, and his first with an undisclosed woman who the actor is no longer seeing.

His baby mama's name was a mystery ... until now, we think!

Alex Rodriguez, Cynthia Rodriguez and Kids

The speculation is that the girl Jude Law got pregnant is Kayleen McAdams, a makeup artist and the sister of his Sherlock Holmes co-star Rachel McAdams.

Various sites have identified her as the "secret mother."

According to reports, Jude Law and Kayleen McAdams hooked up last Christmas when he was working on the film. She is reportedly seven months pregnant and has just decided to inform him of this exciting fact recently. Ouch.

Kayleen McAdams, right, with sister Rachel McAdams.

The star said to have broken the scandalous news to his former wife, Sadie Frost, and their three kids - Rafferty, 12, Iris, 8, and Rudy, 6 - earlier this week.

Rachel is said to be "pissed" about the situation.

Yesterday, a rep for actor confirmed that "following a relationship last year, he has been advised that he is to be the father of a child due in the fall."

"Mr. Law is no longer in a relationship with the individual concerned, but he intends to be a fully supportive part of the child's life."

Lauren Conrad may be a best-selling author thanks to her debut novel, L.A. Candy, but it looks like her former Hills co-stars Spencer and Heidi Pratt are now angling for their spot on The New York Times best-seller list as well.

The duo will be releasing a book together this fall. The title? How to Be Famous. Spencer posted the news of the book's release on (what else) his Twitter.

"I hope once the Speidi written book How to Be Famous that comes out this fall people will hate less because we shared the blueprint," Spencer Pratt said.

"After How to Be Famous hits stores you will absolutely have no excuse to be jealous of Speidi fame for 'nothing.' Go get your own fame it's easy!"

A Speidi Smooch

Their entry into the world of book publishing is the latest addition to the couple's quest to dominate the world. The duo have not only become reality stars, but both Spencer and Heidi Pratt have embarked on their own music "careers."

Heidi will sing at the Miss Universe Pageant August 23. And Spencer?

"I've always known that I secretly am the hottest rapper in the game," Pratt said. "I'm the white Jay-Z. I'm doing the baller thing. I'm more for the streets."

Sure thing.

Yesterday, the gruesome twosome went shopping for baby clothes at Kitson. But don't worry, Heidi Pratt is not pregnant - she was seen picking out something that said "My Dad's a Hunk," so that rules out it being for her own baby right there.

Click to enlarge more pictures of Heidi and Spencer, doing what they do best (we imagine staging photos and cashing in is an entire chapter in their book):

Hey, wonder what Jon and Kate Gosselin have been up to?

After a month of non-stop celebrity gossip coverage, the stars of Jon & Kate Plus 8 (and their parents) are returning to the airwaves Monday with new episodes.

Exhale. Deep breaths. Relax, you can wait until then.

In the first show back, Kate Gosselin shows Jon what he's been missing - a grating spouse toned bikini body - as she takes their eight children to the ocean.

As for Jon, well, no mention of Hailey Glassman and/or Kate Major, a.k.a. Kate 2.0, his new pair of mediocre, post-divorce play things. Probably for the best.

Check out the preview ...
