NFL star Pacman Jones, the poster child for pro athletes behaving badly, must pay $11.6 MILLION in damages to the victims of a Las Vegas strip club shooting.

Pacman (real name Adam) had been sued by Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski, two security guards who were shot outside Minxx strip club in February 2007.

The now-famous incident began when Jones "made it rain" with THOUSANDS of $1 bills ... then got pissed when a stripper began taking it without his permission.

A fight ensued outside the club and three people were shot, including Cudworth and Urbanski. Pacman was sued, even though he was not the actual shooter.

A Nevada jury found Pacman Jones responsible and awarded Cudworth $1.3 million in damages. Urbanski, who was paralyzed from the waist down, got $9.6 million.

Urbanski's wife sued for loss of marital relations and won $750,000.

At the time Pacman pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, receiving just a year's probation and 200 hours of community service.

He was suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season and part of 2008 as a result, and is currently a member of the Cincinnati Bengals ... at least for now.

Jacob Anthonisen, an art dealer and friend of Lindsay Lohan and other stars, is currently being sought in a murder investigation, according to Radar Online.

The 37-year-old, who runs with the likes of Emile Hirsch, Mickey Avalon, Taryn Manning and Lady Victoria Hervey, has been named a person of interest.

On June 9, a decomposing body was found in the back of a Cadillac Escalade registered to Jacob Anthonisen in a parking lot in West Hollywood, Calif.

The remains were identified on Thursday as Steven John Simmons - Jacob's stepbrother - and the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the chest.

"He has been involved with some very dangerous people in the past, and we are worried that they have something to do with this," a close pal said.

Anthonisen, who owns The Peanut Gallery in L.A., has been missing since May 31. "At this point, everyone is just hoping he is alive and well," a pal said.

"But it's no secret that he served time in prison for drugs, so it's something to consider here. The circumstances lead us to believe drugs played a role."

Anthonisen has something of a troubled past, having served two years in prison from 2003-2005. He was convinced on drug-related charges in Arizona.

Chris Brown is portraying himself as the victim in Wednesday night's fight with Drake and his entourage, but one of Brown's posse members may have been the primary instigator of the violent brawl, according to new reports from witnesses.

The Chris Brown-Drake fight clearly involved major smack talk on both sides, but it was Brown's friend who flashed gang signs and made death threats at Drake's entourage moments before the melee broke out at W.I.P. nightclub, allegedly.

  • Chris Brown: Fight Time?

Eyewitnesses say that Chris Brown had been hanging out at his VIP table with a posse of 16 guys or so ... one of whom was a man with dreadlocks who was throwing gang signs and screaming at Drake and his entourage.

Witnesses say this man was the primary instigator in the brawl that followed.

Among other verbal taunts, the man yelled out, "Somebody's gonna die!"

The man also lashed out at Drake's friend Meek Mill - the man who allegedly inflicted this gash on Brown - saying "F**k you, we're gonna kill you n!gga."

As the threats were made, Chris reportedly stood up and embraced him.

If the man acted as if he's associated with a gang - regardless of whether he actually is - it could be significant, as Chris' probation bars him from such things.

Seriously. His probation stipulates him from fraternizing with gang members. Says a lot right there, no? Neither he nor Drake are criminal suspects, FYI.

The Jerry Sandusky trial is in recess for a three-day weekend after the ninth alleged victim of the former Penn State coach took the stand Thursday.

Victim No. 9, a slightly built 18-year-old, looking nervous and ashamed, leaned into the witness stand mic yesterday to deliver graphic testimony.

He was a trailer-park kid from a poor, single-parent family, just the kind of project Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile charity was supposed to help.

Victim No. 9 told the shocked, packed Centre County Courtroom how when he was a young teen he'd stay in Sandusky's basement on weekends.

That's when the former Penn State defensive coordinator would routinely come down at night and force him to perform oral sex, he testified.

"What was I going to do?" the witness said, his vulnerable voice cracking. "Look at him, he's a big guy, bigger than me. Way bigger than me."

The boy said that he only kept returning to Sandusky's home because his mother, thinking he needed a male role model, insisted he do so.

Soon the sessions occasionally included sodomy, which couldn't stop either.

"I just went with it," he said. "There was no fighting against it. … Sometimes [I'd] scream. Sometimes tell him to get off of me. But other than that, he was there, you were in a basement, no one can hear you down there."

It looks like last night's wild fight between Chris Brown and Drake was, in fact, about the former's ex and the latter's rumored hookup, Rihanna. Imagine that.

Sources also indicate that while Drake's telling the truth when he says he wasn't involved physically in the epic melee that ensued, he definitely stirred the pot.

Drake gave Brown the middle finger, engaged in some serious trash talk, and recruited several other rappers to join his posse before the brawl, witnesses say.

Tension started escalating, supposedly, when Drake gave the middle finger to one of Chris' bodyguards and shouted, "I'm about to go whoop that ass!"

Chris' entourage responded with a few hand gestures of their own.

Witnesses very close to the action say Drake felt disrespected ... even though he started the exchange. At that point the rapper went to get backup.

His boys Juelz Santana, Trav B and Meek Mill - the one who sources say hit Brown with a bottle and gashed his chin - then stepped into the beef.

At this point, the latest report says that Drake got loud and shouted at Chris something to the effect of "You be on that ho s**t on Twitter n***a!" 

That would be an expletive-laden, but clear reference to a recent Twitter war between Chris, Drake, and Meek ... all over who's banging Rihanna.

Raise your hand if you're surprised she played some role in this. Anyone?

Moments later, Chris' security guards became irate, more words were exchanged, pushing and shoving began, a bottle was thrown, and ... yeah.

By all accounts, Drake never got physically involved in the brawl and was about to leave at the time, which he claimed in a statement via his rep.

His middle finger and smack talk clearly played a role in it, however.

One quick question before we turn it over to your comments: Whatever happened ... aren't you almost surprised this hasn't happened before?

Whose side are you on in the Chris Brown-Drake beef?

Drake is adamant that he did not beat up Chris Brown last night, claiming he was in the process of leaving the nightclub when the stars' entourages threw down.

Chris Brown's fight with Drake and his posse at a New York club left him with a gash on his chin (he posted a pic of it on Twitter that he later took down).

He says he was leaving when $h!t went down though. His rep said: "[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”

"Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began."

Earlier reports indicated, contrarily, that Brown and Drake had been hanging out in the VIP section when Drake began pointing and yelling at Brown.

Brown began yelling back, witnesses say, and that's when members of both entourages rushed in and began shoving each other repeatedly.

With tensions escalating, someone threw a bottle, causing an all-out melee.

It's unclear who threw it, but bedlam erupted and security called the police.

Now, a new witness claims it was a rapper hanging out with Drake, Meek Mill (pictured below), who was screaming at Chris and vice versa, not Drake personally.

Nick Loeb, who split with Sofia Vergara last month but promptly got back together with her, is at the center of a shocking sex scandal ... allegedly.

According to the National Enquirer, Loeb is a raging sex addict who hires hookers and often engages in multi-partner orgies. He also loves strip clubs.

Two prostitutes have come forward with shocking claims regarding the businessman and insist that Modern Family star Vergara is "in the dark."

"[Nick] just can't get enough," says one of his alleged escorts, Bianca.

"He'll party with anyone from 2-5 girls, usually in luxury hotel penthouses, with porn playing on all the TVs, lines of cocaine laid out and liquor flowing like water."

"He takes large doses of Viagra and provides sex toys, lingerie and drugs, including E."

"He doesn't use it but he likes the girls to take it because he believes it makes them enjoy sex more. His favorite thing is to watch two women making love while he has sex with another girl ... I think Nick is definitely a sex addict."

"Sofia would call in the middle of an orgy," Cindy, another of his alleged prostitutes, says. "Nick would grab his cellphone and bolt. When he got back, I said, 'Does Sofia know what you're doing?' He responded, 'No way! She'd kill me.'"

She still could, Nick Loeb. She still could.

The heckler caught on tape harassing Bristol Palin at a bar last fall is apparently suing Lifetime for putting the altercation on her new reality show.

She was riding a mechanical bull when Stephen Hanks began heckling Bristol Palin, yelling, "Did you ride Levi like that," "Your mother is a whore," etc.

Palin confronted him, asking if he didn't like Sarah because he is "a homosexual." Things got headed, but afterward, Hanks apologized to Palin.

But now he's suing for defamation, invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and misappropriation of right of publicity.

Hanks' attorney, Michael Gulden, says no one ever asked Hanks to sign a release for the footage to be used on Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp.

The video (above) has been online ever since the altercation and has been viewed nearly a million times. Still, he's seeking damages in court.

"He felt this was the only way he could protect his rights," Gulden says, adding, Hanks was "simply a patron at the bar" where this went down.

Lifetime says it has "no comment" because it is a legal issue.

Bristol Palin's new show, which she says shows a "normal" and "grounded" side of her, premieres Tuesday. Check out some Life's a Tripp photos.

Chris Brown got into a fight - with dudes for once - and sustained a nasty gash on his chin last night after he and his entourage brawled with Drake.

Brown Tweeted the picture below, apparently a wound from a bottle attack, and suffered during a scuffle with the rapper and his crew in a club.

NYPD sources confirm that the stars and their camps got into a fight in the Big Apple's WIP nightclub, and five people were injured in the melee.

Including Chris Brown himself. Check it out:

The NYPD arrived on the scene of the throwdown after receiving a call between 4-5 a.m. Chris and Drake were not present when cops arrived.

No critical injuries were reported - just bumps, bruises and lacerations - and no arrests were made by cops. No further investigation is likely.

Brown Tweeted the photo above with the message, "How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol... Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!."

The Tweet and pic have since been removed.

Witnesses say the posses threw words, blows and bottles, and the subject of the beef was none other than Rihanna, Chris' ex and Drake's rumored hookup.

The previous night, Chris and Rihanna were seen at the same club in NYC, with the former reportedly gazing longingly at his former flame.

Whose side are you on in this feud?

 

UPDATE, 12:02 p.m. EDT: Reports say Brown and Drake had been hanging out in the VIP section when Drake began pointing and yelling at Brown.

Brown began yelling back, witnesses say, and that's when members of both entourages rushed in and began shoving each other repeatedly.

With tensions running high, someone threw a bottle, which set the whole thing off. Shoves turned to punches and security called the police.

UPDATE, 1:08 p.m. EDT: Check out this photo taken at the bar after the fight went down. This was apparently a pretty serious brawl!

Chris Brown-Drake Bar Fight Aftermath

UPDATE, 3:40 p.m. EDT: Drake's rep has issued a statement denying his role in the fight; a source says Meek Mill was the one who smashed Chris' face.

UPDATE, 4:40 p.m. EDT: Check out this photo of Chris Brown's bodyguard Big Pat, who was hospitalized last night after suffering a huge gash on his head.

The photo shows Big Pat in a hospital gurney with blood gushing all over the place. It's unclear how BP got hurt or who's responsible for the damage:

UPDATE, 5:16 p.m. EDT: New reports indicate that the crazy fight was, in fact, all about Rihanna, and that Drake was not involved ... physically.

It appears that Drake flipped off Chris, talked major trash, then recruited several of his friends at the club in advance of the altercation, however.

According to a letter sent this week to Lance Armstrong, the seven-time Tour de France champion is facing new charges from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that threaten to strip him of those titles.

The 15-page document, obtained by The Washington Post, says the USDA took blood samples from Armstrong in 2009 and 2010 that were tested and proved to be “fully consistent with blood ma­nipu­la­tion including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.”

In accordance with these charges, Armstrong is currently barred from triathlon competition, a sport he took up not long after retiring from cycling in 2011.

In a statement released by his publicist, Armstrong says:

“I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one. That USADA ignores this fundamental distinction and charges me instead of the admitted dopers says far more about USADA, its lack of fairness and this vendetta than it does about my guilt or innocence. Any fair consideration of these allegations has and will continue to vindicate me.”

The letter in question names "more than 10 cyclists" as having "firsthand knowledge" of "long running doping conspiracy" involving Armstrong and a quintet of former cycling team associates.

Of course, even if these allegations are proven true, they wouldn't be the most embarrassing facts about the star athlete to come out. He did once date Ashley Olsen, after all.

Do you think Lance Armstrong took performance enhancing drugs?
