Karrueche Tran

Oh, That Bloody Lip?

It's Just ...

5/26/2015 5:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0526-karrueche-tran-bleeding-lip-INSTAGRAM-01Karrueche Tran's bloody lip and vague caption might have you believing something seriously physical went down a certain someone in her life ... but TMZ has learned that just isn't the case. 

KT posted the photo Tuesday afternoon with the caption, "Rough day in Chicago." While it seems like a bad domestic violence joke -- we're told she was actually referring to a photo shoot she just did in Chi-town.

Our sources say the spread called for Karrueche to play a "street fighter" type, thus the blood.

So, despite her ex-bf temporarily overreacting to her pic with Tyson Beckford -- this fight club snapshot was strictly a work thing.

Blac Chyna

Dating Boxing Superstar

... But No Bangin' for 4 Weeks

9 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-blac-chyna-jleon-love-INSTAGRAM-01A little "Good News, Bad News" for Blac Chyna ... 

The Good News -- she's moved on from Tyga and is now dating boxing champ J'Leon Love.
The Bad News -- sex is 100% off the table for the next 4 WEEKS!!!

Here's the deal ... Blac Chyna met Love around 3 weeks ago and kicked up the flirting when she made him her Man Crush Monday. We're told he flirted back and they've been on ever since.

By the way, Love is one of the hottest rising stars in boxing right now ... and is represented by Floyd Mayweather's promotional company. So, he's a bona fide member of The Money Team. 

Now, let's get to the "no sex" thing ... 

Love -- the WBA International Super Middleweight Champion -- is training for a big fight in Vegas on June 20th ... and he has a very strict "no banging" policy in the weeks before a bout. 

One source connected to Chyna tells us she's totally cool with J'Leon's vow of celibacy ... and she's told friends, "I feel like it's a good thing and I'll deal with it with him!"

Only 24 days to go -- but who's counting?

Audrey Hepburn

Sons Battle It Out

Over Glittery Clothes and Fancy Hats

19 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-audrey-hepburn-GETTY-01Audrey Hepburn's sons are at legal war over her hats, scarves and jewelry.

Audrey left a storage locker full of memorabilia.  Among the items ... posters, costumes, gloves, photos, scripts and awards.  

The "Breakfast at Tiffany's" star gave her 2 sons -- Sean Ferrer from her first marriage and Luca Dotti from her second -- a 50/50 cut in all the items. But she didn't say who got what ... she expected they would divvy it up. Problem is ... they can't agree. 

So the treasure trove is just collecting dust at the Los Angeles Fine Arts & Wine Storage Company, and now a judge has to divide the goodies.

Has Crabs Because Of Me

29 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0526-sig-hansens-discoveryThe King of Norway met with a Norwegian guy even more famous than him .... "Deadliest Catch" star Sig Hansen.

King Harald V of Norway came face to face with Captain Hansen in a Seattle fishing village, where Sig graciously presented His Majesty with a tray full of, what else, king crabs.

The King got a VIP tour of The Northwestern, the famous Norwegian vessel.

There's a strong connection between the King and the Captain. Sig grew up in Seattle where there's a big Norwegian presence. Sig's dad, who is Norwegian, taught his son the fishing ropes at 14.

Byron Allen

Stands by 'Blackface' Obama Diss ...

Threatens Hillary Clinton Too!

5/26/2015 2:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

President Obama refused to address the racial issues raised by famed Hollywood producer Byron Allen, but went radio silent, according to Allen ... who's now blasting the prez AND the potential future prez.

TMZ broke the story ... Allen told us, on camera, that Obama is a "white president in blackface." The remark ignited huge controversy, but when Allen came on TMZ Live he refused to apologize. Instead, he said he was intentionally being harsh on BO because "Black life in America is harsh!"

Allen also says he's only going public with this because he met the Prez face-to-face -- at a fancy $40k/plate dinner -- and raised his concerns, but never heard back. 

Watch, Allen is incredibly bold -- aside from ripping Obama, he also warns Hillary Clinton ... address my concerns or "you're not gonna get the black vote." 

Sam Shepard

One Tequila, Two Tequila

... Busted for DUI

5/26/2015 1:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0526-sam-shepard-mugshot

Two shots of tequila is all Sam Shepard drank ... at least that's the story he unsuccessfully told cops before they cuffed him.

The "Bloodline" actor was popped Monday night in Santa Fe, New Mexico outside a restaurant. A security guard called police, saying he feared Shepard was way too drunk to drive.

Shepard tried in vain to drive away, thwarted by an emergency brake he failed to release. That was enough evidence for cops to pull him over, and administer field sobriety tests ... which he failed. Cops say he also refused to blow into the breathalyzer, and that upped the ante.  

He was arrested for aggravated DUI, and remains in custody. 

Shepard was arrested for DUI back in 2009.

Kristoff St. John

My Son Didn't Have to Die ...

Hospital Could Have Prevented Suicide

5/26/2015 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-kristoff-st-john-julian-st-john-TMZ-TWITTER-01Kristoff St. John is suing the hospital where his son committed suicide -- blasting the mental facility for giving him access to the plastic bag he used to kill himself. 

The "Young and the Restless" star's 24-year-old son Julian St. John killed himself in November while getting treatment at La Casa Mental Health Hospital in Long Beach. He was found dead in a bathroom with a plastic bag over his head. 

The reason for Kristoff's wrongful death lawsuit -- he says his son did the same thing less than 3 weeks before his death ... attempting to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room. In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt ... the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.

In his lawsuit, Kristoff says there's evidence the nurses were falsifying records. He says staffers were supposed to check on Julian every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk -- but records show they were logging welfare checks before they even happened.

For instance, Julian was pronounced dead at 1:44 PM, but nurses had already logged 6 welfare checks between 2 PM and 3:15 PM. 

Kristoff feels the facility was negligent in its supervision of his son -- and if the staff had "acted with even the slighted regard for Julian's safety, he would still be alive today."

We've reached out to the hospital. No word back yet.

Lamar Odom

He's Saying There's a Chance ...

Khloe's Still My Girl!

5/26/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom is finally saying it on camera -- he still thinks a reunion with Khloe Kardashian is possible ... which seems to explain why their divorce is on hold.

Lamar dropped the bombshell in Santa Monica on Monday -- the photog asked if there's a chance they'll get back together, and LO responded, "Of course."

There's more ... he goes on to say KK is "still my girl,"  and the audio is a little low, but we're pretty sure he added ... "That's my wife."

He ain't lying. Although Khloe filed divorce docs in December 2013 -- there's been no movement on either of their parts for more than a year.  As TMZ first told you ... a judge is threatening to dismiss the divorce filing due to lack of action.

Watch ... Lamar's saying exactly what our sources say -- right now, all signs point to NO divorce.

Also interesting -- Lamar's out on the social scene again. He hit up DBA nightclub in Hollywood last night. No evidence though he was dancing the way Khloe did in Vegas.

Kim Richards

Under the Influence at Daughter's Wedding

Sober Coach Quits

5/26/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-kim-richards-wedding-INSTAGRAM-02Kim Richards melted down at her daughter's wedding over the weekend to the point her sober coach quit, her daughter isn't speaking with her anymore and those present say she was either on drugs or alcohol.

Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Kim was clearly under the influence of something, although no one seems to know what. Our sources say whatever Kim took or drank, she did so in private, but when she interacted with people at the wedding she was "a mess."

We're told Kim was saying horribly nasty things to her daughter, Brooke, right after the wedding. We're told Kim was cursing out the groom's family and was generally belligerent. The bride has vowed she won't speak with her mom again.

As for the sober coach ... we're told she couldn't control Kim and left Mexico immediately after the wedding. 

Our sources say Kim is still in Cabo and she's gone radio silent. The rehab facility gave her a pass to attend the wedding but gave her a deadline to return Monday, which she has not done.

EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar3:20 PM PT -- Walgreens just officially pulled the plug on its ads saying, "In the wake of recent news, we are no longer advertising on the '19 Kids and Counting' program."

gray-bar-updateThe backlash from "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar's molestation admission is snowballing ... two more big advertisers just yanked their ads from the show. 

Payless ShoeSource and Choice Hotels both say they're cutting ties with all future episodes of the TLC program. 

Several customers voiced complaints to Payless and the company responded by saying, "Our ads ran during this show as part of a larger buy w/ TLC. We are taking steps to have them removed from future episodes." Choice Hotels said, "We have decided to remove our advertising from the show."

Walgreens, another major advertiser with TLC, posted a response saying that they were continuing to monitor the situation.

TMZ broke the story ... shortly after news broke about Josh, General Mills pulled its ads.

50 Cent

Boxing Company Goes Bankrupt

5/26/2015 10:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-50-cent-tmz-02Huge blow for 50 Cent's boxing company SMS Promotions -- TMZ Sports has learned the rapper's company has just filed for bankruptcy ... though it vows to stay in business. 

50 started SMS Promotions back in 2012 ... and signed some pretty big names in the sport, including then-undefeated champion Yuriorkis Gamboa, James Kirkland and Olympic medalist Andre Dirrell.

But apparently, the boxing biz hasn't been as kind to 50 as it has been to others like his pal Floyd Mayweather ... because according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the company filed for Chapter 11 on May 25th.  

In court docs filed in Connecticut, SMS says it has between $100k and $500k in debts. 

SMS just put on a fight in Connecticut on May 15th -- though it clearly wasn't enough to turn the company around. 

An attorney for SMS Promotions says 50 -- aka Curtis Jackson -- made the decision to file so the business could reorganize and emerge as a stronger company. 

"Under the direction of Mr. Jackson, SMS Promotions looks forward to reorganizing as a new corporate entity and becoming one of the leading promotion companies in the world of professional boxing.”

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.
