Kris Jenner

I'm About to Become

The ONLY Momager in Hollywood

5/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-kris-jenner-tmz-01Kris Jenner is so cunning she now wants a legal lock on the very name that has been sometimes used to disparage her ... momager!

We found out Kris has filed legal docs to trademark the name "momager" in the world of entertainment, which means anyone else who wants to use the description would need her permission, or else she could sue them.

It looks like she'll get what she's gunning for, because Kris has already locked down trademarks for the term "momager" for personal management services and for use in her reality show.

Apparently, Kris doesn't like imitators like Dina Lohan and Tina Knowles.  

They've been warned.

Bobby Flay's Wife

Screw You And The Horse You Rode In On

5/26/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521-bobby-flay-stephanie-march

Bobby Flay's estranged wife says Bobby is so gross he gave her a racehorse as an anniversary gift and pocketed more than a hundred thousand dollars in purses. 

Stephanie March claims in her divorce case Bobby bought her "Dad's Crazy" back in 2009 for their 4th wedding anniversary. Turns out the equine was a champ, raking in $130k in winnings.  

Stephanie claims when it came to the horse Bobby was a hog, not only keeping the purse money but selling the horse for $60k and pilfering every penny.

As we previously reported, March and Flay have been at each other's throats in an ugly divorce battle that just gets uglier. She wants the prenup set aside, claiming it's grossly unfair.

As for the horse scratch, Flay admits he registered it in her name, but denies lining his own pockets with the winnings. 

Giddy up.

Johnny Depp

Aussies Aren't Messing Around

in Dog Smuggling Case

54 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0513-johnny-depp-dogsJohnny Depp going to jail for bringing his dogs to Australia might sound like a joke, but officials Down Under aren't laughing ... and Depp could actually end up behind bars.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" could face up to 10 years in prison -- and receive a fine of up $340,000 -- for illegally bringing his two dogs into Australia, says the Sydney Morning Herald.

The paper says his pilot, who flew Depp and the dogs into the country, could get two years as well.

Depp had the two Yorkshire Terriers -- Boo and Pistol -- flown back the U.S. earlier this month after officials threatened to put the pups down ... all because Depp didn't properly declare them.

Under Australian law, dogs brought into the country must be quarantined for 10 days, to avoid spreading disease.

G-Unit's Jack Thriller

Step Up, 40 Glocc ...

I'll Beat the Bitch Outta You

5/26/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rapper 40 Glocc's mama does not want to see this video -- his celeb boxing opponent Jack Thriller recorded a trash talking video laced with threats that go way beyond the boxing ring.

Thriller -- who hosts 50 Cent's Thisis50.com web network -- is fighting 40 Glocc on July 27th in Atlantic City for the first ever Hip Hop celebrity fight night. Last week 40 released a video of himself training with Jeff Mayweather ... Floyd's uncle.

If it was supposed to intimidate ... it FAILED miserably. Watch Thriller's response. Highlights include gems like -- bitch boy, p**syface, bitch Glocc, and the timeless classic ... d**khead.

His sign off is the best. 

Maddie Ziegler

We’re Movin’ On Up

Thanks To My Fancy Footwork

EXCLUSIVE

0522_maddie_ziegler_home_launch_2Maddie Ziegler must be cashin’ in on all those Sia videos … or at least her family is because they’re upgrading to a huge, million dollar custom-built home, complete with Maddie’s very own dance hall.

The Ziegler's 4-bedroom, 2500 sq. ft. suburban Pittsburgh pad was put on the market earlier this week and sold in just 6 hours, at the full $279,000 asking price. 

Melissa, Maddie’s momager, tells TMZ the family simply outgrew their old home, and the new 7,000 sq. ft. pad is quite the step-ball-change up. Amenities include a dance studio in the basement, pool, and a closet for Maddie’s shoes. Plenty of room to also hang the 12-year-old's newest accolade -- a platinum record courtesy of Sia.

0522-maddy-siegler-sia-record-INSTAGRAM-01No word if there's a closet for Maddie's dance trophies.

Birdman

The Feds Squeezed Me For $2 Mil!!

Okay, I Owed it to 'Em ...

5/26/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522_birdman_TMZLil Wayne and the IRS have something in common -- they both wanted millions from Birdman -- but only one of 'em got the Cash Money honcho to cough up the dough, and Weezy's not the one smiling. 

The music mogul was slapped with two federal tax liens - - one in December 2014, the other in February 2015 -- for refusing to pay a total of $1,942,400.58 in back taxes.

Birdman quickly learned no one's more gangsta than Uncle Sam -- the feds threatened to snatch up his property and assets if he didn’t pay ASAP ... and within a few months, Birdman paid off the debt.

Maybe Wayne should ask the real OG's (our government) to get "Tha Carter V" released.

Just sayin'

Harrison Ford

Back in Pilot Seat

And It's Electric!

5/25/2015 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-harrison-ford-coleman-raynerIt ain't the Millennium Falcon, but hey ... it's baby steps for Harrison Ford, who was back at the stick -- of a Tesla last week.

It's the first time photogs have spotted Ford out in public since he ditched a plane on a Santa Monica golf course back in March, heroically missing nearby homes.

Ford was cruising around L.A. in the luxury electric vehicle with a friend. The 72-year-old looks to have healed well -- his face was cut and bloodied following the plane crash, but you can't see a mark on it in the pics.  

Don't worry ... he'll hold together.

Tyson Beckford

Tells Chris Brown

Your Threats Don't Scare Me

5/25/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-tyson-beckford-instagramChris Brown had a meltdown Sunday after Tyson Beckford dared to post a pic of himself with Karrueche Tran, but Tyson made it clear, he's not scared one bit.

It started Sunday when Chris saw the pic, then posted a flurry of tweets, saying among other things, "U wanna keep walking them runways.  I need ta legs for that.  Keep playing like I ain't wit the bulls***." 

Chris deleted the tweets, but Tyson fired back, seemingly impervious to the threats, saying, "It's all about fun in Vegas, come thru papa."

Tyson then posted video of himself shooting a gun range, saying, "Just in case your forgot!"

But Chris wasn't done.  Late Sunday night, Chris posted a pic of Vegas cops behind a building, saying, "This n**** Tyson got the whole Vegas PD out here.  Suckah!  This fruitz!"

Chris has been making a play to get Karrueche ever since she found out he had a child by another woman.  

Don't know whether this helps or hurts Chris' chances.

Chris Weidman, Floyd Mayweather

Two Champs

Hangin' in Vegas

5/25/2015 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-chris-weismann-floyd-01

UFC champ Chris Weidman mixed fun with mixed martial arts this weekend, mugging with Floyd Mayweather at a Vegas pool after his title victory.

Chris didn't look the worse for wear after his 1st round submission against Victor Belfort at UFC 187. The sunglasses are pretty big and could be hiding a bruise or 2, but Weidman took care of business pretty quickly so probably not.

The 2 champs chilled at the pool at The Palms, where Weidman was hosting a post-fight event.

Both fighters share something pretty impressive .... they're both undefeated.

Chris Brown

Baby Mama Claims Deadbeat Dad

He Says She's Money Hungry

5/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-chris-brown-nia-sanchez-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

Chris Brown is at war with his baby mama, who claims he's stopped paying the measly $2,500 a month in child support, and now she's gunning for 6 times that.  

Multiple sources connected with the couple tell TMZ, Chris has been paying baby Royalty's mom, Nia Guzman, the $2,500, but the gravy train stopped in March. Our Chris sources say he stopped paying because Nia demanded $15k a month, which he thinks is ridiculous.

We're told Chris says Nia's treating the baby like a winning lottery ticket, but she claims he's being incredibly cheap and their daughter is suffering as a result. 

We're told Nia's lawyer, Carl Moore, will be filing legal docs in the next 2 weeks demanding back child support and a huge monthly hike.  

We're hearing rumblings of settlement.
