(Newser) – The drama never ends with the Suleman 14—Angela Suleman’s home of many years will be auctioned off to the highest bidder today in California, TMZ reports, speculating that it was probably easier for Nadya to buy a new home (valued at $564,900) than help her mom out of the $534,289.54 hole for the old one. More celebs in trouble:

  • Billy Bob Thornton’s estranged daughter has been charged with child neglect resulting in the death of an infant, People reports. Amanda Brumfield’s Friday arrest stemmed from an October incident in which a 1-year-old girl Brumfield was babysitting fell.
  • Dany DeVito is being sued for allegedly reneging on a $500,000 deal with a backer of his upcoming project, but his spokesperson tells the New York Post, “The lawsuit is entirely without merit. The judge will see through it in a millisecond.”
