Oh, Shia LaBeouf, whatever will we do with you? After seemingly suffering a break from reality and then launching his “performance art” exhibition debut earlier this month in Los Angeles, you’d think things would be quieting down in his world… but alas, you’d be wrong. This time, however, the story isn’t really about him – it’s about his Uncle Barry, who apparently borrowed $800,000 from Shia and never repaid it. Well, now he has to, according to a Manhattan judge!
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Eileen Bransten rejected Barry Saide’s arguments that his actor nephew should accept Saide’s interest in four companies in lieu of cash. Saide’s investments were used as collateral for the 2009 loan.
“The terms of the note are clear and the amount due and owing … is forth in the note,” Bransten wrote in a decision signed Monday but posted Wednesday.
Saide, who is a maternal uncle, will have to pay interest of as much as 9% in accordance with the terms of the deal. The agreement required Saide to repay the loan in 15 installments of $53,333 but Bransten noted that Saide never repaid a dime.
Well, that seems fair. You know what they say: mo’ money, ‘mo’ problems!

Oh man, this case gets more insane by the minute…
The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services just opened a fresh investigation into allegations that someone hurt Bob, one of Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s twins, and Mueller thinks Denise Richards did it!
TMZ was told that Brooke reported the incident over the weekend, just after Charlie appeared on TMZ Live and threatened her. Apparently, there was a cut on Bob’s back that was deep enough to scab over, and Brooke attested to the fact that it happened while Denise had custody of Bob.
If you’ve been following this ridiculousness, you know that Denise was the guardian of the twins while Brooke tried to kick her dependency issues. Denise threw in the towel yesterday over the kids’ violent behavior. Now, Brooke’s brother Scott is the twin’s guardian.
After a visit to Bob’s school, social workers investigated Brooke’s allogation and determined that the cut had been there for more than a week, which means it could have happened while Bob was under either Denise or Brooke’s care. DCFS then interviewed Denise, who said the cut had been there for more than a week.
And, the perpetrator still remains at large. Oh man, I’ll be so happy when this custody battle is over, won’t you?

Charlie Sheen doesn’t know the meaning of “back off!”
The “WINNER” was called out by the judge presiding over the custody case between Charlie and ex Brooke Mueller over their twins, Bob & Max. According to a source in the courtroom, the judge kinda SCHOOLED Sheen, talking him that if he doesn’t keep his mouth shut, he could go to prison!
The Anger Management actor has been freaking out lately over the fact that his boys are on their way to living with Brooke Mueller again…I would be, too, but Charlie needs to keep it together if he ever wants to see his kids again (meaning, no name calling, threats or this kind of bull!)
The incessant threats by Charlie led to him being summoned to court and getting a temporary restraining order that prohibits him from going even 200 yards near Brooke. He’s also been issued a gag order and can NOT talk about the case anymore, according to PerezHilton!
I’m sure he took it with tremendous graciousness and aplomb! In any case, time for Charlie to do a bit more behaving.

Will.i.am is going after Pharrell in a lawsuit, claiming Pharrell steals names for profit, including his!
TMZ reports that there are multiple instances of Pharrell taking, um, some ideas that may or may not be his own, according to the Black Eyed Peas frontman…
Pharrell has launched a YouTube channel called I AM OTHER. After Will fired off a cease and desist letter, demanding that Pharrell stop using “I AM,” Pharrell filed a lawsuit, asking a judge to protect his right to use the “I AM” moniker.
Now we’ve obtained new legal docs, in which Will.i.am is countersuing Pharrell, claiming the dude has a long, copycat history. Will.i.am notes … Pharrell co-founded a record label called Star Trak Entertainment — sound familiar?
Will also notes Pharrell is being sued by Marvin Gaye‘s family for allegedly ripping off “Got to Give it Up” for his summer smash “Blurred Lines.”
And there’s still more. Will claims Pharrell also tried to register the trademark, Pink Slime — which Will says is similar to Slime, owned by Mattel. That’s a stretch, right?
Yes, yes it is, Will. Though some of these are pretty lose, I think there’s definitely some “inspiration” going on from other artists. Is Will.i.am a money-grubber (like he needs any more!), or do you think his argument has some validity?

Kelly Osbourne wants to set the record straight: she’s NOT a bad tenant…she promises!
According to a recent lawsuit put forth by Ozzie’s spawn, she’s not a slob and she’s suing for a hefty security deposit she believes she should get back!
TMZ says that Kelly put down $18,700 as a security deposit before moving in to her posh Weho pad, but when she moved out, she claims the landlord never bothered to stop by to check the unit for damages. Soon after, Kelly got some bad news…in an email. The landlord sent her a message notifying her of an estimate of damages, which ate up her entire 18,700 deposit!
Well THAT’S convenient.
Kelly says she rented the fancy apartment in West Hollywood (which, by the way, has been home to many celebs including Lindsay Lohan, Adam Lambert and Brody Jenner) and cleaned it up like a good tenant when she left. Kelly is suing for her deposit back plus punitive damages to show her landlord that she’s being ridiculous (and greedy).
See? Even celebrities have to deal with crazy landlords and getting their deposit back! Still, I’d be a tad more concerned with getting a celeb-sized deposit than my meager one…
