A bitter dispute over who will call the shots in probating Michael Jackson's will is developing, with several of his family members pitted against one another.

Michael's mom Katherine Jackson's attorney, Londell McMillan, will reportedly challenge the executors Michael Jackson picked, John Branca and John McClain.

Most of the brothers, with the exception of Randy, are angry that McMillan is challenging Branca and McClain, both longtime MJ advisors and friends.

Ultimately, Joe Jackson has asserted his influence over Katherine to hire McMillan. Sources say she is being manipulated and doesn't have real objections.

Randy is coy on who Joe Jackson and Londell McMillan want as executor in place of or in addition to John Branca and John McClain, but the family is understandably worried Joe and McMillan will rack up legal fees and the estate will suffer.

Ironic, since Michael cut Joe out of the will.

Michael left 40 percent of his estate - and full guardianship of his three children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket, 12, 11 and 7 - to Katherine Jackson.

He left the other 40 percent of the estate to the kids and 20 percent to charity, so it is unlikely Katherine would object to anything in the will. Right?

McMillan denied this report, which first surfaced on TMZ, to Access Hollywood, saying that Katherine does not object to the will and that she has not yet made a decision on whether to challenge the appointed executors.

Like an endangered species rehabilitated in captivity only to be released back into its natural environment, Britney Spears is about to be let back into the wild as her conservatorship appears to be nearing its end.

The star's father Jamie Spears, who has been in charge of her financial, medical and personal affairs for a year and a half, is ready to step down.

Soon.

Jamie will ask the court that appointed him to review the terms of the conservatorship after Britney Spears' Circus tour ends in November.

He cannot ask the judge to end the conservatorship - just to review it. The judge will then decide if Britney should regain control of her life.

According to sources, Jamie thinks Britney Spears is just about ready to go on her own. Her life has been his full time job since February '08.

She may complain he is overprotective sometimes, but whatever Jamie has done, he deserves due credit for. A year and a half ago, people were thinking Britney Spears was living on borrowed time. Now look at her.

In fact, were it not for the tour, the conservatorship may have been ended prior to this. Various vendors were promised, for insurance purposes, under contract that the conservatorship would last through the Circus tour.

We're guessing a stable boyfriend like Jason Trawick only helps Jamie's reasoning that his daughter is ready to resume control of her existence.

A love interest in her life that can actually be trusted? Bidding farewell to leeches Sam and Adnan? Thank you Jamie Spears, for all you've done.

Britney Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline is eyeing a new reality program to show off his latest girlfriend, Victoria Prince, and his two sons with Brit, Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline, a source tells E! News.

"Victoria is going to be a big part of the series," says an insider. "They are not engaged, but she lives with him full-time in his place in Encino."

Lucky for Victoria Prince, and contrary to tabloid reports, Britney Spears seems to have given her sons' "step-in mommy" a seal of approval.

"Victoria and Britney first met before Britney's tour at Kevin’s home," reports a reliable E! News source. "They had a meeting face-to-face, when Victoria was home alone with the kids. It was awkward, but Britney was nice."

When she isn't playing mom, K-Fed's tall girlfriend, a former AVP volleyball player, smokes cigarettes and takes graduate classes in communication.

"Victoria quit her job at Fox Sports in L.A. after meeting Kevin," says the source. "She’s considering returning to volleyball, but she isn’t sure."

This is not the first time that K-Fed has dabbled in reprising his role as a reality star since Britney & Kevin: Chaotic aired four years ago now.

In February 2008, he reportedly canceled a possible show after Britney's infamous breakdowns landed her in the hospital against her will.

We feel like we've seen this before. Only hotter.

The last time she posed like her idol Marilyn Monroe, we were treated to various Lindsay Lohan nude pics paying homage to "The Last Sitting."

On this occasion, Lohan takes over the August cover of Vogue Spain to reinterpret the look of her hero, who died of an overdose at age 36 ...

Lindsay Lohan fashions herself a modern-day Marilyn Monroe.

The alleged actress and workaholic certainly is everywhere these days.

From Fornarina ads to ABC Family movies to magazine spreads like this one to celebrity gossip sites to Twitter, where she posts topless pics of herself, you cannot get away from her even if you want to. What a mogul.

First, Xavier Samuel. Now, Noot Seear.

The Twilight family continues to grow.

Seear, a Canadian model with no real acting experience, has been cast in New Moon. She'll play the role of Heidi, a villianess Volturi vampire who seduces human prey.

By the looks of her, this shouldn't be a problem.

Look out, humans. Noot Seear is out to seduce us all!

Said director Chris Weitz of the casting:

“We wanted someone who had an unearthly and unlikely beauty, but could also convey humor and menace. It’s rare to find a stunningly attractive person who also happens to have the ability to act.”

But is the model - who has posed for Calvin Klein and Alexander Wang, among other major brands - even familiar with the Twilight Saga?

"I started reading the books and I couldn't put them down," she said. "I've always been biting at the bit to get into the industry... what makes acting different is that you get a voice. You're not just a picture."

Based on her pictures, though, Kristen Stewart might need to worry. Will Robert Pattinson have the willpower to deny this beauty?

We hope this report is not true.

New rumors are swirling around Demi Lovato, as tabloids have published photos that appear to depict the Disney star's troubling habit of cutting herself, a self-mutilation reaction that some use to deal with difficult emotional issues.

Speculation first started around eight months, as the first set of questionable pics were released, seemingly showing Lovato's scarred wrists.

Now, Star Magazine has unleashed the pictures below:

Cutting?

"Demi has been really stressed out about her new show, Sonny with a Chance," a source told Star. "She's not getting enough downtime because there is so much work involved, and she's always being pulled in different directions."

Can such pressure lead to destructive behavior? Yes, says Jennifer Austin Leigh, a doctor that has never treated Lovato, yet, apparently, has also never turned down an opportunity for fame.

"Cutting is how she can let go of the stress that has built up inside - when she cuts herself, it's a way to cope," said the San Francisco–based psychologist.

Write in and show your support for Lovato. Hang in there, Demi.

Carrie Prejean has been through so much.

Following a series of nearly naked photos, the beauty queen was forced to expose her skin yet again at the 2009 Miss USA Pageant.

From there, she was asked a question by a judge, finished all the way in second place at the competition and then received far more national attention than if she had won.

It was a tough few weeks for Prejean, as the only motivation she even had for waking up each morning was the need to defend "opposite marriage" from the Satanic critics that dared to press her for more information on her views. The experience was barely worth the appearances fees and fame she accumulated.

Then, Donald Trump fired Carrie as Miss California and she was left to pick up the pieces with a book deal worth at least the six figures.

Prejean Press Conference

Indeed, Carrie Prejean will pen a tell-all memoir titled Still Standing, a perfect title for a woman that has suffered so much.

In the press release issued by Regnery Publishing, the company announced the book as follows:

[Prejean] will tell her side of the story, answering such questions as what happened behind the scenes at the pageant, why she answered the Perez Hilton question as she did, what really led to her losing the Miss California crown, and how she has been forced to battle the left's double-standard on free speech and the bias against conservatives who stand up for their beliefs.

God bless Carrie Prejean; and God bless copy editors. She's gonna need a bunch.

Former NFL star Steve McNair had a blood-alcohol level that was double Tennessee's legal limit for driving when his girlfriend shot him to death.

Tennessee Assistant Medical Examiner Feng Li said there was no way to tell from the report how long before McNair's death he had been drinking.

Police have said that McNair was likely asleep when he was shot twice in the head and twice in the chest. There were no signs of a fight or argument.

The 20-year-old Sahel Kazemi shot Steve McNair, who was married, July 4 in a Nashville condo before killing herself in a gruesome murder-suicide.

Both Kazemi and McNair were found dead July 4.

Police also said Monday that a toxicology report showed a trace amount of marijuana in the body of Kazemi, who was the football star's girlfriend.

Sahel Kazemi was arrested for drunken driving in Nashville two days before the shooting. Police video showed her telling officers that she was high.

The day after that, Kazemi purchased a gun - allegedly from Adrian J. Gilliam, Jr., who has been arrested in connection with McNair's murder.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, winner of Super Bowls XL and XLIII, is named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a woman in Nevada.

According to online court records, a defamation lawsuit was filed in Washoe County, Nev., on Friday. Andrea McNulty is listed as the plaintiff.

Details of the suit were not available late Monday. Ben Roethlisberger was one of nine defendants listed in the online court docket report.

Sources say McNulty claims Roethlisberger asked her to come to his hotel room in July, 2008 - and then forced her to have sex with him.

An employee at Harrah's Hotel in Reno, McNulty is suing for sexual assault and battery, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress.

The football star's attorney released a statement to several media outlets confirming that Ben is accused of sexual assault by Andrea McNulty.

David Cornwell denied Ben sexually assaulted anyone, and said he was confident this would be proven, with the following statement:

"This weekend Andrea McNulty served Ben Roethlisberger with a civil complaint accusing him of sexually assaulting her in July 2008. Ben Roethlisberger has never sexually assaulted anyone; especially Andrea McNulty."

"The timing of the suit and the absence of a criminal complaint and investigation are compelling evidence of the absence of criminal conduct. If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated."

Simon Cowell wants Paula Abdul.

Not in the sexual sense, although the two American Idol judges often flirt like school children.

Instead, the British music producer has made it clear that his judging partner is mistaken in assuming the show doesn't want her back.

“She’ll be fine. She’ll be on the show,” Cowell told Extra yesterday, responding to Abdul's manager's complaints. “I don’t get a lot of say. I’ve just made it clear that I want Paula on the show."

A Great Judge

Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest expressed a similar sentiment.

“I think, as far as I know, you’ll see everybody back. I hope so.”

As for the most recent batch of American Idol finalists, they recently brought the Staples Center down with a crowd-pleasing show in Los Angeles.
