Caitlyn Jenner

New Identity Creates Problems

at the Golf Course

6/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_caitlyn_jenner_sherwood_country-club_2Caitlyn Jenner has some tricky day-to-day changes in store, including where she eats, drinks and changes clothes ... at the country club which has become her home away from home.

Bruce Jenner became a member of Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA 15 years ago. He golfed there almost every day and established close relationships with his golfing buddies, including Wayne Gretzky. It's a very exclusive, ritzy club with an initiation cost set at $225,000.

But now that Bruce is Caitlyn, there's a new set of rules that segregates her from the male members.

For starters, the main dining room and bar are male only. They're actually attached to the men's locker room and women are not allowed. The women's restaurant is way more scaled down ... in other words, not nearly as nice.

Our Sherwood sources say the board will enforce the rules, which means the camaraderie Bruce shared with the other members will be greatly impeded now that she's Caitlyn.

But we're also told the board is open to an appeal by Caitlyn herself. She can attempt to make a case that she can keep the same privileges she had when she was Bruce.

The club is closed for renovations until December, which means there's time to sort things out.

Kim Richards

Kyle and Mauricio Won't Save You Anymore

6/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_kim_richars_kyle_richards_Mauricio-Umansky_TMZKim Richards has just lost 2 of the most important people in her life, because we've learned her sister Kyle and husband Mauricio Umansky have washed their hands of her ... ironically, to save her.

Sources connected with the family tell TMZ, Kim stayed in Mexico after her daughter's wedding and was perpetually wasted. We're told in the last few days, Kyle and Mauricio had a security guard fly down to Cabo and literally force Kim onto an airplane where she returned home to L.A.

Our sources say Kim has promised to re-enter rehab, but it's not flying with Kyle and Mauricio. We're told they feel they have done what they can do to save Kim, and the only thing left is tough love.

So, Kim is no longer their problem. If she ends up on the streets, then that's what has to happen. We're told things are so bad, Kyle and Mauricio feel Kim is actually in danger of dying. But they believe the only hope is for her to realize they will not be her safety net to constantly bail her out.

Very sad.

Iggy Azalea is officially on her way to becoming Mrs. Swaggy P-- her NBA star boyfriend Nick Young popped the question ... and she said, "Yes!"

It all went down at Nick Young's 30th birthday party Monday night -- with the L.A. Lakers star getting down on one knee and busting out a fat diamond ring ... according to hip hop insider Karen Civil

The two started dating back in 2013 -- for their first date, Nick took her to a Target to go shoppping.

From there, they hit it off quickly -- with Nick once taking her home from a club and bragging, "What I'm about to do with this shouldn't be legal!"

EXCLUSIVE

Miles Teller felt the tempo and neither rushed nor dragged his feet while showing off his moves at BottleRock Napa Valley music festival.

The "Whiplash" and "Footloose" star caught Brett Dennen’s set on Sunday, and tore up the field … even taking his dance moves to the beer line during the singer's funky “Must Be Losing My Mind." 

Teller was having a blast ... several fans tweeted about him, including this gem ... “I met a drunk Miles Teller and it's probably the best thing ever.”

No. The best thing ever is Teller's dancing … just watch. We give the t-shirt toss-and-catch a '10.'

Ozzy Osbourne

I'm Sick Of Moving

Drops $10 Mil On New Home

EXCLUSIVE

0601-ozzy-osbourne-house-MLS-01
Ozzy Osbourne is finally done being a nomad and has settled down for a cool $10 mil in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Beverly Hills.

Ozzy’s new 5,680 sq. ft. pad has 5 bedrooms, 5 ½ baths and a 2 story guest house with its own garage. The English style country estate has a Playboy-esque grotto that's covered in roses and ivy.

Back in 2013, the Osbournes sold their previous residence to Jessica Simpson for $11.5 mil. Ever since then, Ozzy has been renting around Los Angeles without finding a permanent place to call home.

But now that one of the most prestigious streets in BH had an opening, Ozzy and fam snatched it up … and we’re told homes on this block rarely come up for sale. Guess it pays off to be patient.

Jimi Hendrix

Excuse Me, While I Sue This Guy

... Over Legendary Guitar

6/1/2015 6:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_jimi_hendrix_black_widow_gettyOne of Jimi Hendrix's fabled axes was allegedly stolen by a guy who's now trying to cash in by selling the guitar -- but the money men behind Jimi's estate are gunning to shut down the sale.

The battle is over an Acoustic Black Widow guitar ... which went to Jimi's dad when Hendrix died in 1970. Then in 1995 ... pops gave it Experience Hendrix, LLC -- Jimi's licensing and merchandising company. Experience Hendrix believed the guitar was in its possession until June 2014.

That's when, according to a lawsuit filed by Experience Hendrix, Julien's Auctions contacted the company to authenticate a Black Widow that Brian Patterson was attempting to sell as a Hendrix treasure. Hendrix attorneys say Patterson got the guitar from a guy who somehow got it after divorcing Janie Hendrix ... Jimi's sister.

The Hendrix co. says its the rightful owner ... and is demanding Patterson hand over the guitar immediately, and fork over at least $750k in damages.

Or as Jimi might put it -- Hey Brian ... where you goin' with that guitar in your hand?

Obama to Caitlyn

Way to Go!

6/1/2015 3:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-barack-obama-caitlyn-jenner-Vanity-fair-getty-02President Obama has weighed in on Caitlyn Jenner's new journey, by heaping praise on her. 

The Prez just tweeted, "It takes courage to share your story," adding, "Your story matters in the fight for LGBT rights."

It's a huge victory for the LGBT community. It's one thing for the President to acknowledge LGBT rights during a State of the Union address ... it's another to voice strong support for the person who has become the most visible transgender person in the world.

Wheaties

Mum on Caitlyn

We Stand By Bruce

6/1/2015 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601-caitlyn-jenner-wheaties-box-04

General Mills -- the makers of Wheaties -- had an interesting reaction to the passing of Bruce Jenner and the birth of Caitlyn.

As you know, Bruce's image was an iconic box cover for the cereal in 1977 ... one year after he won gold at the Olympics.

We contacted General Mills Monday and asked about their reaction to the new photos, and they told us, "Bruce Jenner continues to be a respected member of Team Wheaties."

We followed up by asking if they acknowledge the presence of Caitlyn and the response was short and to the point: "We stand by our statement."

We were told General Mills has had its statement locked and loaded for a while.

It's interesting ... the company rolled out the box cover in 2012 for a retro campaign celebrating the achievements of Olympic gold medalists, which also included the images of Muhammad Ali and Mary Lou Retton. We don't know if they will use Bruce's image in the future.

Call Me Caitlyn

First Photo as a Woman

6/1/2015 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-bruce-jenner-cover-vanity-fair-01

It's the biggest reveal of 2015 for sure ... Bruce Jenner as a woman, and the pic is dramatic. 

The name's now Caitlyn. She posed for the cover of Vanity Fair's July issue and it was shot by famed celeb photographer Annie Leibovitz.

It's interesting the name is spelled with a C and not a K ... possibly a break from the Kardashian Klan.

In the Diane Sawyer interview Bruce made it clear he was saying farewell to his male persona. This pic is a full reveal of the transformation. 

Caitlyn just opened a Twitter account, saying, "I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me."

Check out the video, where Caitlyn models several outfits and seductively poses.

Enrique Iglesias

I Need a Hand ...

From a Surgeon!

That drone accident jacked up Enrique Iglesias' hand so badly he has to get reconstructive surgery.

Enrique's fingers got sliced during Saturday night's concert in Tijuana when he grabbed a drone flying above the stage. Even though the singer was able to finish the show -- bloody and bandaged ... the damage was severe.

His rep told the AP ... Enrique was having surgery in L.A. on Monday to repair his right hand.

His world tour will resume July 3rd in Mexico City, where we're guessing drones will be strictly prohibido.

Trashy Lingerie

Big Winner In VF Cover

EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-08If you’re wondering where Caitlyn Jenner picked up that sexy satin corset for her big cover reveal, look no further than West Hollywood’s Trashy Lingerie.

We found out Jenner’s stylist went to the famous lingerie shop three weeks ago looking for a specific type of corset. We’re told the stylist bought 3 corsets for the VF cover shoot – 2 satin ones that lace up the back, and 1 lacy number that was special ordered.

The shop’s plain, satin nude Edy Corset won top honor, along with matching high-waisted panties … in a size large. The cup size? A healthy 36B.

0601_the-trashy_winner

The stylist dropped $1,030 total for all three looks.

A small price for a big change, if you think about it.

I Didn't Spell it with a 'K'

For Good Reason

6/1/2015 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-02

Caitlyn Jenner did not spell her first name with a "K" because she wants a clean break from the Kardashian moniker ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources closely associated with Bruce tell us Caitlyn wants to make it clear to her family and the world ... she is her own person. That sounds obvious, but we're told it was an extremely meaningful choice for her ... she has never been her own person before, and becoming part of the Kardashian brood would undermine her goal.

Our sources say it's not that there's bad blood between Caitlyn and the Kardashians ... it's all about self-identity.
