He got records, he got heat."

Susan Berg, the woman who claims she bought the "whole s**t" out from under Suge Knight, may not be the business savvy woman she's making herself out to be.

Ron Goldberg, a NYC businessman , tells TMZ he was the mastermind behind the purchase of Death Row Records.Goldberg says he's a major investor in New York-based Global Music Group.

He says the group of investors appointed Susan, a former facialist, as an officer of the company, but she doesn't own it -- the group does.

Susan's been taking credit for the takeover of the bankrupt label, and insiders tell us they're a tad annoyed at her boasting.

Ron says Susan still has a job ... for now.


Talk about embarrassing.

Tennis "star" Maria Sharapova just lost big time to a player ranked at 154!


Sharapova was beaten during the second round at Wimbledon on Thursday by fellow Russian Alla Kudryavtseva.

She was defeated 6-2, 6-4.

Poor Sharapova.

Just four years ago, at the age of 17, she defeated Serena Williams at Wimbledon.

Looks like Sharapova spent too much time worrying about fashion with her "tuxedo" top and short shorts, when she should have been practicing to win.

Is it time to retire????

***David Geffen is a brilliant businessman, but he made one incredibly bad call early in his career.

In her new autobiography, "Society's Child," pop singer Janis Ian reveals how Geffen and Hal Ray, her agents at William Morris, once presented her with an offer to do the soundtrack for "something called 'The Graduate,' and advised me to pass.

One of them said . . . 'It stars some big-nosed unknown kid with a funny name and bad hair.

The story line is silly - [he] graduates from college, has an affair with his mother's close friend and neighbor, falls in love with the neighbor's daughter, then runs away with her after breaking into church where the wedding's being held.

Oh, and he locks everybody else inside . . . with a big cross, while he and this chick make their escape . . . Ridiculous.'

We passed.

Paul Simon did the score, and the rest is history.

" The Dustin Hoffman movie got seven Oscar nonimations and its Simon & Garfunkel song "Mrs. Robinson" was a huge hit.
