Kendall Jenner

Nearly Trampled

After Paris Fashion Show

3/5/2015 11:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kendall Jenner drew crowds in Paris that rivaled Charles Lindbergh ... well, maybe not exactly, but pretty close.

Kendall was leaving the Balmain Fashion Show where she had just walked the runway and when she left it was next to impossible to traverse the hundreds of crazed fans.

Kendall was with a bodyguard who was way too small for the task.  

Kim, Kanye and mama Kris were safely inside, having just watched Kendall do her thing. BTW, Kim and Kanye were also swarmed when they came in, but the Kendall craziness took the cake.

Lupita Nyong'o

Thief Gets Away with It ...

Case Closed

3/5/2015 10:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0308-lupita-nyongo-getty-01

The guy who burglarized Lupita Nyong'o's hotel room and stole what he THOUGHT was a $150,000 dress has gotten away with the crime, because Calvin Klein wants the whole thing to go away.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... reps from Calvin Klein contacted the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. earlier this week and said they had no interest in pursuing the case now that they got the dress back ...and it's pretty obvious why.

The thief called TMZ Friday and indignantly said he took 2 of the pearls down to the L.A. Garment District for appraisal, only to learn they were fake and worthless. He told us he had returned the dress to The London West Hollywood hotel and left it under a sink in a 2nd floor bathroom. We told the cops, and they got the dress.

We're told the Calvin Klein people did not tell cops why they did not want to pursue the case, but it's pretty obvious. The dress was represented as the real deal, and the dressmaker clearly doesn't want to put a spotlight on the phony pearls.

Case closed. Score one for a bold, somewhat reckless thief.

Bobbi Kristina

Browns & Houstons Gather

For Bittersweet 22nd B-Day

40 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0307-bobbi-brown-splashBobby Brown was the one given a gift on Bobbi Kristina's 22nd birthday ... he was allowed to gather both sides of the family together to celebrate her special day.

Sources close to the family say Bobby and his wife, Alicia Etheredge, were allowed to invite several members of the Brown family to join them, along with the Houstons -- who've been at the hospital every day -- for Bobbi Kristina's birthday vigil.

Tyler Perry and Bobby's brother Tommy were among the family and friends who joined them at Emory University Hospital Wednesday for cake and some semblance of normalcy during this difficult situation.

As you know ... Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31 ... and has been in a medically induced coma and on life support ever since. 

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

Move or Be Moved

Bodyguard Rams Crowd

3/5/2015 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's bodyguard launched himself into the crowd outside a Paris Fashion Week event when fans and photogs got way too close for Kanye's comfort. 

Kimye was heading into the Balmain show Thursday morning -- entering through the back door -- to go see Kendall Jenner walk the runway. But the instant they stepped out of their car ... the crowd started to swarm and Kanye barked at security to clear a path for Kim ... which they did on her side of the car.

But on his side, things started to get hairy -- and that's when the hired muscle sprung into action.

Watch the clip ... NFL linebackers would be proud of this guy. 

Drake Fans Scammed

I'm No Fake ...

But These Shows Are

3/5/2015 8:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0304-drake-tmz-01Drake will be performing in 8 cities beginning in May ... sounds awesome, except we found out it's a scam. 

A promoter is advertising the tour ... but not with Drake's permission. The rapper is NOT performing at any of the venues this spring and is asking his fans to call the cops if they got duped into buying tickets.

The scam is no small potatoes ... we're told in Miami and Houston, ticket prices are upwards of $350 a pop and people are falling for it.  

We're told Drake and his team have no idea who the promoter is, but they're definitely on the hunt and out for blood.

Chris Brown

My Baby is Royalty!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0304-chris-brown-fun-art-getty-tmz-01Chris Brown's baby girl answers to Royalty!

We've learned Nia named the kid Royalty. What we don't know ... whether she consulted Chris before inking the birth certificate.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris and Nia got it on summer of 2013 and she gave birth 9 months ago. As we reported, Karrueche was blindsided ... she had no idea until minutes before TMZ posted the story Tuesday afternoon.

As for Chris' involvement ... we're told he calls Nia regularly and now says he wants to openly participate in raising the baby. Nia and Royalty live in Texas, and Chris says he'll gladly fly there regularly to parent her.

LaGuardia Plane Skids

NY Giants Player On Flight

'I Shoulda Stayed Home'

3/5/2015 8:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NY Giants tight end Larry Donnell was aboard the Delta airlines flight that skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport moments ago ... and says he KNEW he shoulda stayed home this morning. 

Not one of the 149 passengers on board suffered any serious injuries when the plane was coming in for a landing and skidded off the runway. It eventually crashed into a snow bank and came to a stop. 

When Donnell got off the plane, he did what most people would do ... took a pic ... and posted the caption, "Look at this s**t! Knew I shoulda stayed my ass at home."

Donnel released a statement after the ordeal, saying, "I’m blessed to be safe and sound after our plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia airport today. I feel fine physically and hopefully all the other passengers did not have any significant injuries."

He continued, "We were all shocked and alarmed when the plane started to skid, but most importantly, as far as I know, all of the passengers and flight crew were able to exit the plane safely."

Karrueche Tran

I'm Single Again Baby!

3/5/2015 6:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Karrueche Tran wanted to make a statement Wednesday and the statement she made ... Chris Brown is in her rear view mirror and she's back on the market.

Chris' non-baby mama and a few of her friends who also haven't been knocked up by him hit up the clubs in Hollywood. Karrueche, Christina Milian and a few other chicks went to Hyde and then moved over to Warwick.  

Our photog had plenty of questions about Chris' 9-month-old baby girl -- something Karrueche didn't know about until our story broke Tuesday -- but all she did was giggle.

Gentlemen, the line forms to the left ...

White Guys

Shouldn't Control the N-Word

3/5/2015 5:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

White TV writers have no business deciding if the N-word should be hurled around ... so says the guy who wrote Wednesday night's episode of "Empire."

David Rambo was leaving The Man Cave Sports Bar in L.A. when our photog asked him about Terrence Howard's desire to sprinkle "Empire" scripts with that word ... and he wants it with an "er."

Rambo -- who is also a co-exec producer on the show -- is duly deferential ... because for him it's strictly racial. 

So we gotta ask ...

 said hey baby, take a walk on the bright side -- debuting an ultra blonde hairdo in Paris.

Kim and Kanye West walked out of Le Royal Monceau Hotel, and -- it might just be the new 'do -- but she had a disturbingly distant look on her face ... maybe thinking if change is a good thing. 

And you thought Kim she was just into black.

A-List Can Score Free Seats ...

But It's COMP-licated

3/5/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0304_VOCO_will_smith_rihanna_leonardo_tmzIf Will SmithLeonardo DiCaprio or Rihanna want FREE seats to the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight -- it'll be no problem at all -- as long as they're down to be a walking billboard.

Tickets are in such high demand, fight promoters aren't handing out comped front row seats to high profile stars like they usually do. Instead, they'll be forced to pay up to $100k or more ... just like normies.

But we've learned there's another option. If a celeb is willing to endorse companies by wearing logo-emblazoned gear at the fight -- that company will eat the ticket cost.

For instance, we're told VOCO Vodka & Coconut Water has already made such offers to Leo, RiRi, and Big Willie ... in exchange for front row seats.  

We know what you're thinking, but sorry ... you in a VOCO cap just ain't the same as Rihanna in one.

Enjoy the PPV.

  

Ex 'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans

Fiancé Arrested

For Domestic Violence

3/5/2015 6:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0307-nathan-mug-shot

Well, at least it wasn't former "Teen Mom" Jenelle Evans in cuffs this time -- instead it was her fiancé who got arrested Wednesday in South Carolina for a domestic violence incident. 

Nathan Griffith is currently being held without bail in the same jail where Evans was booked last week after she was busted for driving without a license.

Cops were called to their home around 4:45 AM Wednesday, says WBTW, but no arrests were made. The station says cops were called back again at 4:15 PM ... and that's when Griffith was arrested.

According to the police report, the alleged fight was over their engagement ring -- Griffith wanted it back, and Evans told police he pinned her against a toilet and ripped it off her finger ... leaving a cut.   

Griffith told police it didn't go down that way, and says Evans cut her finger taking the ring off herself. Griffith also claimed Evans had been violent with him on several occasions in the past, but he never called police. 

The report also claims there was a reality TV crew there at the time, but they didn't see what happened.
