Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom ... TODAY ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.
As we reported, Lamar's bizarre freestyle rap video -- in which he brags about cheating on Khloe -- was the last straw in their crumbling relationship. Immediately after TMZ posted the video last month, Khloe stopped wearing her wedding ring.
The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.
Lamar and Khloe tied the knot in September 2009.
I'm Ditching My Adam's Apple
12/12/2013 7:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner is flattening his Adam's Apple ... TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the Olympian met with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon today for a consultation for a procedure called a Laryngeal Shave -- which smooths out the Adam's Apple.
The procedure is typically done on patients who are in the first stage of gender reassignment, but Bruce tells TMZ that is NOT the case with him. He says, "I just never liked my trachea."
We know this is Bruce's second visit to the office.
The doctor took photographs today and sources tell us surgery has been scheduled for early next year, but Bruce insists no surgery has been set yet -- it was just a consultation.
We got video (below) of Bruce earlier today leaving the doctor's office.
5:10PM PDT: Jenner just called TMZ and wanted to add this ... He says he initially went to the plastic surgeon because the basal cell carcinoma that was removed from his nose in September left a large scar that didn't heal well. He wanted plastic surgery for his nose, and says while he was there he consulted the doc on the Laryngeal Shave.
Bruce Jenner Should Just
'Get the Breasts Already'

Marlon Wayans believes Bruce Jenner's laryngeal shave is the first step toward becoming a woman -- but he's moving too slow -- telling Bruce, "Just get the breasts" already!!"
We broke the story, Bruce already consulted a plastic surgeon about reducing the size of his trachea -- though Bruce insists it's NOT the first step of gender reassignment, it's just because he doesn't like the way his throat looks.
Still, Marlon ain't buyin' Bruce's explanation -- telling TMZ, "I think slowly but surely he's been turning himself into a woman all these years."
"Why don't Bruce Jenner just go and get the titties now ... just get the breasts."
In the end, Marlon says if Bruce continues down the surgery path ... "He's gonna look like me in 'White Chicks.'"

I Dropped A New Album!
12/13/2013 5:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce just pulled off a HUMONGOUS feat ... surprising fans by dropping an entire album in the middle of the night on iTunes ... and doing it in almost total secrecy.
Not just a single song, mind you ... a full album -- called "Beyonce" -- with 14 new songs and 17 music videos.
There are a ton of stars featured on the tracks -- Jay Z, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, Pharrell Williams, The Dream, Miguel ... and a bunch of others ... even her baby, Blue Ivy gets a credit.
Right now, the album's only on iTunes ... Queen B said she did that for a reason, saying "I didn’t want to release my music the way I’ve done it. I am bored with that."
She also released a music video for every new song -- and somehow, one of our TMZ photogs got into one of the shots (see video below) ... PHOTOBOMB!!
Secret Black Women Audition Was Just a
12/13/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Saturday Night Live's secret audition to find an African-American female was total BS -- at least according to one actress who tried out, but thinks it was only thrown together to quiet SNL's critics ... not to find a new cast member.
Comedian Tiffany Haddish tells TMZ the Dec. 2 talent search at The Groundlings Theatre in L.A. felt like it was a dog and pony show, partially because executive producer Lorne Michaels wasn't there -- and he's known to attend most auditions.
Other sources at the try-out tell us it seemed too conveniently timed -- coming on the heels of current cast members Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson publicly blasting 'SNL' producers for not hiring a Black female.
If 'SNL' found the right chick ... they're not saying yet -- but Tiffany thinks "they already know who they want ... they're just wasting all these black women's time and gas money."
So, we gotta ask ...
Casey Kasem's Caretaker
$10,000 Victory in Toilet Paper-Stealing Lawsuit
12/13/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Casey Kasem's former caretaker is now $10,000 richer -- after winning a lawsuit against Kasem's wife, who allegedly abused the caretaker relentlessly and even accused her of stealing toilet paper.
TMZ broke the story ... Hilda Loza sued Jean Kasem for $10,000, claiming she was subjected to all sorts of emotional abuse by Jean and it was so bad she would often cry for days.
Hilda says Jean would also mock her cooking and make Hilda drive her around without reimbursing her for gas. Hilda says Jean even accused her of stealing petty items like food, silverware, and toilet paper.
Now, a judge has ruled in Hilda's favor ... ordering Jean to pony up the $10k plus court costs.
Score one for the underdog.
I'm Desperate To Keep Farrah Painting
'Or I'll Die!'
12/13/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ryan O'Neal is a desperate man ... telling TMZ if he's forced to give up a famous Warhol painting of Farrah Fawcett ... it will kill him.
O'Neal may have been overly dramatic when we saw him Wednesday night outside Palmeri ... but he was clearly anxious about the outcome of his court case involving the portrait.
The University of Texas has sued O'Neal ... claiming it rightfully owns the Warhol ... since Farrah left her entire art collection to the university in her will.
O'Neal -- who was with Farrah for years -- claims the artist gave the painting to him personally ... so he's fighting in court to hang onto it.
He tells us, "I gotta win ... or I'll die."
