Tim McGraw
Slap Victim Lawyers Up Pay Up, Or Else

The woman Tim McGraw bitch slapped during a concert earlier this month has taken the first step in slapping Tim back ... with a lawsuit.Jesslyn Taylor has hired a lawyer who has already contacted Tim's people ... and it's pretty obvious she wants Tim to ante up ... or face a personal injury lawsuit.Her lawyer, Eric Hertz -- a Georgia personal injury attorney -- tells TMZ his client was NOT trying to grab Tim's junk when he hauled off and slapped her.  He says she was nothing more than an enthusiastic fan who was part of the show's "interactive environment" and merely wanted a touch.Hertz says Jesslyn is furious Tim's been slinging mud at her by claiming she was aggressive ... trying to rip his jeans ... and she was thrown out of the concert as a result.  He says she feels humiliated and for starters wants an apology.Cops told us they side with Tim and feel he's the victim.  When you hire a P.I. attorney to contact someone who slapped you, you want one of two things: money or a lawsuit to get you money. We reached out to McGraw's reps ... so far no word back.

Mariah Carey
Bel Air is for Princes Not for Queens

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon just freed up a big chunk of Bel Air, selling their massive estate and pocketing a few mil in the process.The couple sold the 3 acre, 7-bedroom Colonial for a skosh over $10 mil, which sounds impressive, but it's 3 million LESS than what they wanted.  Nonetheless, they bought it for $7 mil in 2009 so they won't be apartment hunting in the Valley.In case you want to know what you missed out on ... the house has a movie theater, a gym, an indoor basketball court and a putting green.Unless Miley Cyrus bought the house, it's likely the monogram at the bottom of the pool will be deep six'd.Real estate sources tell us ... M&N plan to ditch the left coast ... for NYC.
