While two deaths at his Coronado, Ca., mansion are still under investigation, Jonah Shacknai has hired a high-profile public relations agency, reports say.

Shacknai hired Sitrick and Company, a powerful PR firm out of L.A.

His six-year-old son Max suffered a fatal fall down the stairs last week, just two days before Jonah's girlfriend Rebecca Nalepa was found dead.

Coronado police have ruled the boy's death a tragic accident. The death of Rebecca Nalepa, also known as Rebecca Zahau, is a bigger mystery.

She was found hanging naked from a courtyard balcony of the same home. Police investigators cannot say if the case is a homicide or suicide.

The homicide unit awaits results from forensic evidence and toxicology tests. A search warrant was served but it's not clear what was found.

Lindsay Lohan is being sued. We know, huge shocker there.

This morning's plaintiff is Dawn Holland, the former Betty Ford staff member who got into a melee with LiLo last December, and whose account of what transpired that evening has been murky and ever-changing from the get-go.

According to Holland's lawsuit against Lohan, the star unleashed the fury when she tried to give Lindsay a breathalyzer test at the famous rehab center.

Lohan on the Loose

New legal drama for LiLo ... for the first time all week!

Dawn claims Lindsay Lohan was "combative and violent" when confronted after sneaking off site - allegedly to go boozing - then returning after curfew.

In the lawsuit, Holland claims Lohan grabbed her right wrist, "twisting and pulling it for 8-10 seconds," which caused her to seek medical treatment.

Holland alleges "mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering" from the attack she says Lohan committed, and is demanding $1 million. Minimum.

Weston Cage was arrested early Wednesday for felony domestic violence. The troubled son of Nic Cage was also arrested for DV earlier this month.

This time, Cage was arrested and then to a nearby hospital to be treated for cuts, injuries police believe - at least right now - were self-inflicted.

The mother of Weston's pregnant wife Nikki Williams, who he plans to divorce, says she is okay, and that "Nikki is safe and away from him."

Weston is still in custody on $50,000 bail, TMZ reports.

Kim Kardashian is suing mad.

The large-breasted professional celebrity has filed a lawsuit against Old Navy in which she claims the company intentionally duped the public with a lookalike (who may be dating Kim's ex!) in one of its commercials.

Making Kardashian especially irate? In an effort to boost publicity, Old Navy has been Tweeting to her account, referencing the similar-looking model. And we all know that NOTHING is more sacred to Kim Kardashian than her Twitter account.

The reality star is reportedly suing for at least $15 million, claiming the ad cost her that amount in damages. How? That's more confounding than the reason for Kim's fame.

Tyler Hadley, a 17-year-old high school dropout from Port St. Lucie, Fla., allegedly bludgeoned his parents to death with a hammer, according to police.

He then invited dozens of friends via Facebook to a house party while the bodies of Blake and Mary Jo Hadley lay upstairs in a bedroom, police say.

Acting on an anonymous tip, officers visited the home Sunday and Tyler initially told them his parents were out of town, says Capt. Don Kryak.

Police entered the house and stunningly found the bodies in the locked master bedroom on the floor, partially covered with towels, books and files.

A hammer believed to be the murder weapon used by Tyler Hadley lay between them. "It was a merciless killing," says Kryak, stating the obvious.

As for the party, as many as 60 people Tyler invited via Facebook showed up, and the bash went from about 9 p.m. until the early hours of Sunday.

"He had the party after the homicides took place," says Kryak.

It was not known if any attendees saw the bodies, but a rumor started that Tyler killed his parents, and a tip thankfully made its way to the police.

Unlike with Casey Anthony, we don't see a surprise acquittal here.

While testifying in front of British lawmakers today, Rupert Murdoch was attacked by a protestor with a pie tin.

In the middle of shirking all responsibility for his newspaper's phone-hacking scandal in the country, Murdoch was interrupted by an individual (Jonathan May-Bowles) who rushed at him with white foam inside the aforementioned desert tray.

Watch Murdoch's wife, Wendi, actually take the man down in the following footage:

The hearing was eventually re-started, with Murdoch laying blame for the sordid controversy on "the people I trusted."

Following his shutdown of News of the World and the arrest of Rebekah Brooks for her role in that publication's phone-hacking scandal, Rupert Murdoch spoke before British lawmakers today and addressed the controversy surrounding his media empire, News Corp.

In response to the allegation that his newspaper broke into the voicemail of a kidnapped 13-year old, Murdoch said he was "shocked, appalled and ashamed" by the development. He also claimed to have no evidence that reporters did the same to relatives of those who died on 9/11.

Murdoch took very little personal responsibility overall.

The death of Rebecca Nalepa, a woman found nude, hanging from a balcony, her hands and feet bound, at a Coronado, Calif., mansion last week, has officials launching an investigation into her millionaire boyfriend Jonah Shacknai.

Shacknai, who police say owns the home, had been dating Nalepa for about two years. Jonah's brother, Adam Shacknai discovered Nalepa's body.

After calling 911 early Wednesday, he cut her down. Local paramedics performed life-saving measures, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are calling the death suspicious but have not ruled out the possibility of suicide. Making the case even more noteworthy is the fact that Jonah's six-year-old son, Max, fell to his death just two days earlier.

Police have not established a formal connection between those events.

"It appears to be some type of a violent death, however I'm not going to compromise the integrity of the investigation by giving anything more than that at this time," San Diego County Sheriff's Dept. Capt. Tim Curran said.

Incarcerated rapper Lil Boosie may be incarcerated longer than expected after he was busted attempting to smuggle drugs into his prison cell.

Lil Boosie's legal woes have worsened after he was indicted for conspiring to get hold of codeine syrup at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.

He has been charged with one count of criminal conspiracy to take contraband to and from a penal institution, and another of inciting a felony.

He is also due to stand trial next month after pleading not guilty to a first-degree murder charge relating to a 2009 shooting in Louisiana.

Safe to say he will be known as "incarcerated rapper" for awhile.
