Lenny Dykstra says Charlie Sheen admitted to causing  assistant’s overdose death

In an explosive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former Mets player Lenny Dykstra said Sheen casually confessed to being the mastermind behind the overdose death of personal assistant Rick Calamaro.

Calamaro, a nightclub owner who worked as Sheen’s right-hand man during the “Wall Street” star’s 2011 public meltdown, was found dead in his apartment in 2012 from what the Los Angeles County coroner ruled an accidental overdose.

Dykstra was in jail when Calamaro died, serving time for auto theft and lewd conduct.

When he got out, Dykstra reportedly asked Sheen, “What the f— happened to Calamaro?”

“You mean Dead Rick?” Sheen replied, according to Dykstra. “What f—ing happened is the mother—-r tried to blackmail me just like you said, wanted $5 million. I had him f—ing iced.”

Dykstra said Sheen bragged he had a hot dose — a lethal drug mix added to Calamaro’s stash.

Sheen’s lawyer Shane Bernard denied the claims to THR and challenged Dykstra’s credibility, citing the former MLB player’s “laundry list” of criminal convictions.  I’ve heard the guy on Howard Stern and he is truly vile and seems very much off his rocker. Still, I put nothing passed Charlie.

Timbaland claims a man is staying in his Miami mansion illegally

Timbaland claims a man is staying in his Miami mansion illegally

I’m fascinated by squatters.  How ballsy!

Timberlands been having trouble selling his Miami mansion, which was most recently on the market in late January for $3.39 million.

The hit-maker reportedly found a buyer in William Zamora, who was allowed to live in the home during escrow. However, the sale apparently fell through, and now Timbaland has apparently filed a lawsuit, claiming Zamora is staying in the home illegally.

According to news reports, Timbaland, whose given name is Timothy Mosley, has been attempting to sell the home since his recent divorce. Now, he argues, he can’t sell the home if there’s someone already living in it who refuses to leave.

Zamora reportedly countersued, claiming that he can’t buy the home because there are liens on the property.

Timbaland purchased the home in 2004 for $3,475,000. In January 2017 he listed the home for $4.4 million. Last summer, he cut the price to $3.39 million, where it remained until just last week, when the listing was mysteriously pulled from the market.

In case the home bounces back on the market, here’s what you need to know about what’s inside.

The 10,689-square-foot home on 1.51 acres has seven beds and five baths. The layout includes a living room with gas fireplace, a game room, formal dining room, home theater, den, family room with flat-screen TV, built-in wet bar, a room-to-room aquarium, chef’s kitchen, staff quarters and a three-car garage. Outside, there’s a pool, covered barbecue and a tennis court shared with a neighbor.

Apparently the reported drama around the home hasn’t cramped the 45-year-old’s style. He was recently reported to have purchased a pair of “sky homes” that will be combined in the luxe Aria tower, which is currently under-construction, in downtown Miami.

Things may be looking up for Timbaland, who recently released “Filthy,” a collaboration with Timberlake.

Kim Kardashian is sending Valentines to her ‘haters’ this year

Kim Kardashian is sending love to everyone this Valentine’s Day — even celebrities she’s had notorious beefs with.

“I decided for this Valentine’s Day everyone deserves a Valentine,” she said on her Instagram story on Thursday. “So I’m going to send them to my lovers, to my haters, to everyone that I think of because it’s Valentine’s Day after all.”

The mom of three, who has been making a stir on social media lately with racy photos, showed a display of labeled and color-coordinated Post-Its with Kimye enemy No. 1, Taylor Swift, and lawsuit-threatening Blac Chyna clearly in the “haters” column.

Always the expert at subtle shade, Kardashian will also be sending Valentines — in form of her newly launched perfume, KKW Fragrance — to Wendy Williams (who recently went off about Kardashian’s naked photoshoot), Bette Midler and Pink.

Ladies who will be getting a fragrance, with no side of shade, include her sister Khloé Kardashian and pals Ciara, Anna Wintour, Mariah Carey and Cardi B.

But with two more weeks until the big day, her “lovers” better keep on their best behavior if they want to stay that way.

OMG Robert Wagner “Person of interest” in Natalie Wood death!

OMG Robert Wagner “Person of interest” in Natalie Wood death!

What seems like a bazillion years after the 1981 death of Hollywood screen legend Natalie Wood, her then husband, Robert Wagner, is being called a person of interest by the LA cold case crew.

So ok, Natalie Wood was this superstar. She was Maria in West Side Story. She was freaking Judy in Rebel without a Cause. That means she snogged James Dean, bitches. She’s no joke.  So she’s married to Robert Wagner, (now 87). Best known for being one half of “Hart to Hart”.   They’re out on a boat one night with, of all people, Christopher Walken, having drinks, going to sleep and in the morning Natalie was dead in the water. She was 43.  The whole thing made more tragic by Natalie’s long fear of the water. Stating once, “I’ve always been terrified, still am, of water—dark water, sea water, or, you know, river water”.

At the time, the actress’ death was ruled an accident. But the case was reopened in 2011, according to 48 Hours, and in 2012, her cause of death was amended to “drowning and other undetermined factors.”

Wagner has not spoken with investigators since the case was reopened, 48 Hours reports, and Corina told the show that “his version of events just don’t add up” and that he may know more than he’s letting on “because he’s the last one to see her.”

Investigators also told the show that bruises noted in Wood’s autopsy report suggest that she may have been the victim of assault before her death.

“I think it’s suspicious enough to make us think that something happened,” Corina told 48 Hours.

CBS will air “Natalie Wood: Death in Dark Water” on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 10 p.m. ET.

Jennifer Hudson to Play Aretha Franklin In Biopic

MGM has acquired rights to develop an Aretha Franklin biopic and signed Jennifer Hudson to portray Franklin in the  untitled project.

Scott Bernstein (“Straight Outta Compton”) and music producer Harvey Mason are attached as producers. Mason was a producer on the “Sing” and “Pitch Perfect 2” soundtracks.

The casting of Hudson — who won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress in “Dreamgirls” — was unveiled by Clive Davis at his Saturday night pre-Grammy party. He said that Franklin had personally selected Hudson for the role in the biopic.

The event sounds unbelievable and included performances by Barry Manilow, Luis Fonsi, Ben Platt, Alicia Keys, Khalid and Logic. Hudson concluded the performance by delivering a medley of Franklin’s hits including “Think,” “Rock Steady,” and “(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman.”

Word is miss Franklin hand picked Jennifer to play her. That’s gotta be an incredible moment, to have a legend say you’re good enough to represent her.
