Stop putting words in my mouth! Is it legal to quote someone for something that they never said?

Kendall Jenner wants to know. The reality-TV star is upset that Us Weekly quoted her as saying about her father Bruce Jenner: "He's a wonderful man. And just because he's changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn't make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he's a man or a woman." Kendall claims she never said that, and wants to know whether it's illegal for a magazine to publish a false quote.

So, what's the answer?

Actor Shia LaBeouf has been in and out of court a lot lately, but this time it was to get a restraining order against someone else who was allegedly behaving badly.

Graciela Nahle, 31, was ordered to stay 100 yards away from the "Transformers" star, although it's unclear if she'll choose to obey it. According to TMZ, Nahle thinks that LaBeouf is "Albert Einstein" and wants to "blow up the world," so her judgment might be a bit off-kilter.

What else should LaBeouf fans know about the restraining order?

iCloud Hack Leads to Hundreds of Leaked Celeb Nudes

An alleged hack of Apple's iCloud storage service has led to the leak of nude and sexually explicit images of some of the entertainment world's biggest names.

The images, posted by an anonymous user on forum website 4chan, feature Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and model Kate Upton, among dozens of others, reports Newsweek.

What are some of the possible legal ramifications of these leaked photos?

"Dating Naked" is a dating reality show following the success of Discovery Channel's "Naked and Afraid," but one castmember is apparently a bit miffed at just how much "naked" VH1 broadcast.

Jessie Nizewitz, 28, is a New York model and a plaintiff in a $10 million lawsuit against VH1's operator Viacom for allowing a brief crotch shot (unblurred) to be shown in an episode of "Dating Naked." According to Entertainment Weekly, Nizewitz was assured that her genitals would be blurred, and now that viewers have caught wind, she's been "humiliated on social media."

Can Nizewitz really sue over a naked shot on a naked show?

The upcoming royal wedding -- of pop culture royalty Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- is set to take place in France, and you bet it will be très chic. But while Ukraine is getting invaded, and people across the globe live in poverty, Kimye are suffering a "crisis" of their own -- French law.

French law requires that one of the parties being married must reside "in the country for at least 40 days prior to the wedding," according to Radar Online. A source at the French Embassy explained, "These requirements cannot be waived," reports E! Online. And while France may be a nice place to get married, it's apparently not nice enough to live in for 40 days -- at least not for Kim and Kanye.

So, it looks like the most anticipated wedding of the year will be more of a big party than a wedding, technically speaking. Here's why:

George Zimmerman's Parents Sue Roseanne Barr Over Tweet

George Zimmerman's parents are suing comedian Roseanne Barr over a not-so-funny tweet that publicized their home address after their son shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Although Barr later deleted the tweet, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman allege that she sought to "cause a lynch mob to descend" on their Florida home when she publicly posted their address, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The Zimmermans are suing Barr for emotional distress and invasion of privacy, and want at least $15,000 in damages. What will they have to prove in order to prevail?

Woman Breaks Into Justin Bieber's Mansion, Sleeps in Bedroom

Justin Bieber has a legion of frenzied fans, but one fan took it to another level when she was arrested for breaking into the pop star's rented mansion in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Qianying Zhao, 23, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass after police found her sleeping inside one of Bieber's bedrooms, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Zhao allegedly entered the mansion without permission, so would a burglary charge also be appropriate?

Taylor Swift's alleged stalker has been slapped with a restraining order after claiming that he'd "kill anyone who stands between them."

The man accused, Timothy Sweet, 33, claims that he and Swift are married, but TMZ reports that Sweet has been stalking her since 2011.

If Swift knew Sweet was trouble three years ago, why the restraining order now?

Nat'l Enquirer Settles Philip Seymour Hoffman 'Gay Lover' Suit

A settlement has been reached in The National Enquirer lawsuit over an article alleging Philip Seymour Hoffman and a friend were gay lovers.

As a result of the settlement, David Bar Katz, Hoffman's friend who found Hoffman dead, withdrew his suit against the tabloid, The New York Times reports.

According to Katz, the suit was never about the accusations of being gay, "the issue was lying about the drugs, that I would betray my friend by telling confidences."

Justin Bieber on Homeland Security Watch List: Report

Justin Bieber may not be landing on any best-dressed lists, but it seems he may have snagged a spot on a Homeland Security watch list, according to a new report.

The troubled 19-year-old pop star was flagged by U.S. Customs officials on Friday when he landed in New Jersey in a private plane that arrived from Canada, the website TMZ reports.

But was the extra scrutiny due to Bieber's being on a government watch list, as the website claims?
