  • Jaleel White, who played Urkel on Family Matters, is under investigation for allegedly punching his girlfriend in one of her breast implants while they were driving on the highway and their baby was in the car.
  • According to sources, the police report says that when they got home he slapped her and pushed her into a toilet so hard it broke. His rep says, “There was absolutely no battery … no abuse … and the incident never happened… This is just a ploy in an ongoing custody battle over their young daughter to tarnish his name.” [TMZ]
  • More bad news for Lindsay Lohan: Her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has quit, and now she’s being represented by another lawyer who was just admitted to the bar in November. [TMZ]
  • Here’s why Holley may have quit: Lindsay is insisting on appealing the case, even though her odds of winning are ridiculously slim. A source says she declared to friends last night, “I’m not going to jail!” [TMZ]
  • A friend says Lindsay didn’t attend her birthday party last night because she’s, “beside herself. She’s with her mom, sister, assistant. She couldn’t bring herself to leave the house…she finally felt bottom.” But the night wasn’t a total bust: Kim Kardashian came over with a bag of Chinese food. [Us, Star]

  • Lindsay wants $1 million for her first post-jail interview. “Financially, it’s the best thing that could have ever happened to Lindsay,” says a magazine source. “It’s no secret that Lindsay has been in financial trouble for a while. She will earn more money from her post-prison interview than she ever earned acting.” [Popeater]
