Kris Jenner

Parties After Cancelling TV Appearance

It's a Miracle!!!

9/2/2015 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Jenner was all smiles a day after cancelling a promised appearance on "Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise" because of what she said was a blown-up lip. 

Kris hit up Nobu in Malibu Tuesday night and there wasn't a trace of lip 911. A day before, she cancelled her Monday night appearance on the show, saying she had a huge, swollen lip from some sort of insect bite and therefore couldn't appear on TV. She compared it to "a tire on my face."

Hours later, the tire was flat.

Safaree Samuels

Buries Nicki Minaj

Tatt Man Apologizes

9/2/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902-safaree-tattoo-instagramNicki Minaj is finally nothing more than a faded memory to her ex-bf Safaree Samuels, who just ditched his last tattoo tribute to her ... in a bed of roses. 

Safaree got his forearm ink of Nicki with her tongue out covered up with the new flowery tatt. It's pretty amazing -- look closely and there's not a trace of her left. Safaree started operation Scrub Nicki months ago ... starting with his chest.

Interestingly, the artist, named Compton -- posted a shot of his handiwork, and his caption included ... "#SorryNicki #itsJustBusiness"

Break-ups are always hardest on the tattoo guys.

EXCLUSIVE

0819-rachel-dolezal-FACEBOOK-02Rachel Dolezal -- everyone's favorite racially ambiguous person -- is pregnant.  

Rachel tells us she's in her second trimester and expecting a boy. The ethnicity is TBD -- we kid.   Seriously, we asked about the baby daddy but she was mum.  

Dolezal was married but she divorced 10 years ago. She was engaged to another man until they broke it off in 2013. Both guys were African-American. 

Dolezal has two sons, 13 and 21.

'Bachelor in Paradise'

Ashley Is Still ...

Tightly Gripping Her V-Card

9/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor In Paradise" star Ashley Iaconetti did not serve Jared anything with a cherry on top -- not her's anyway, because Monday's episode was just a tease, or at least that's her story.  

TMZ has learned Ashley I.'s telling friends ... producers fed her those lines about possibly losing her famous virginity. If you missed it, Ashley's chastity seemed up for grabs when she drunkenly slurred that she dug Jared enough to give it up to him.

Sources close to Ashley say she knows virginity is the thing that's made her famous, so she'd never blow it on a one-night stand.

We're told she's holding out for Mr. Right -- who, as we all know, rarely pops up on reality shows.

'NCIS: New Orleans' Zoe McLellan

Scott Bakula Leaps to Co-Star's Defense

... In Custody War

9/2/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901-zoe-mclellan-scott-bakula-TMZ-TWITTER_01Scott Bakula inserted himself in his "NCIS: New Orleans" co-star Zoe McLellan's bitter custody battle, telling the judge Zoe's focus is not her work or herself ... it's her son.

Zoe has joint custody of 2-year-old Sebastian. Zoe and the boy are living in New Orleans where the show is filmed, but ex-hubby Jean Pierre Gillain claimed it was unfair he had to travel from L.A. to visit his son. He claimed she was pawning the boy off to nannies while she worked. 

But Bakula fiercely jumped to Zoe's defense, saying in a declaration, "Her life is and has been, about one thing and one thing only: being Sebastian's Mommy." The "Quantum Leap" star went on, "I have witnessed that every fiber of her being goes into providing a safe, nurturing, creative world for her son to grow up in."

Bakula explained Zoe has put her own life on hold ... to the point she once took the hair and makeup ladies to a concert, causing everyone to express how unusual it was that Zoe actually went out to have fun.  

The actor ended by telling the judge, "Zoe has a huge heart and in my opinion, she is handling this tumultuous time of her life with great care, consideration and class."  

In the end the judge didn't have to side with either parent, because Zoe and Jean Pierre settled their beef. It looks like the custody arrangement is pretty much status quo, but she has to pay him $4k a month in child support.

Bad Religion Guitarist

Calls Cops On Ex-Wife ...

She Won't Leave My House!!

9/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901-greg-hetson-getty-01Bad Religion guitarist Greg Hetson is having a hard time shaking his ex-wife ... so hard, he had to call the cops. 

Hetson claims in a restraining order, ex-wife Alia Blue has incessantly showed up at his LA home and each time refuses to leave. He's afraid to leave town because sometimes she just shows up and makes herself at home.  

Greg says she just won't accept the fact they divorced 2 years ago and he doesn't know what to do when she bangs on his door for an hour, demanding to hash out their relationship.

Hetson says both he and his daughter feel threatened by Alia and the judge agreed to temporarily protect them. A full hearing is scheduled next week.

'RHOA' Cynthia Bailey

Possible Demotion

... For Kicking Porsha

9/1/2015 4:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901-cynthia-bailey-housewives-TMZ-10Cynthia Bailey didn't even make it a full season, and she's already on the verge of following in Porsha Williams' footsteps -- as in, getting demoted. 

In the wake of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" fight -- where Cynthia kicked Porsha -- production sources tell us show honchos are reviewing footage of the incident and weighing their options for discipline.

TMZ broke the story ... Porsha and Cynthia got into it while shooting a scene on a boat -- Porsha called Cynthia a bitch repeatedly ... until CB snapped and unleashed a kick

We're told producers want to see just how bad (or good, for ratings) the fight was ... and there's a possibility Cynthia could be demoted to the dreaded 'friend of the cast' title -- as opposed to full cast member. And yes, that would mean a cut in pay too.

As for why PW's neck isn't on the line? We're told there's no rule against antagonizing -- hell, that's the meat of the show -- but getting physical crosses the line.

This is old hat for Porsha ... who got bumped down after her epic Kenya Moore brawl. She's hoping to earn a promotion this season.

Master P's Wife

He's Tossing Me ...

Out in the Street!

9/1/2015 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901_master_p_sonya_miller_tmz_instagramMaster P won't rest until his estranged wife is homeless, phone-less, and penniless -- according to Sonya Miller who is begging the court to force him to pay up immediately. 

Sonya says Master P pulled out the big guns last week in their divorce war ... by having security guards block her from entering the Calabasas gated community where she lives with their 7 kids. The issue is ... Master P pays the rent, but in docs filed last week ... Sonya says he's threatening to stop paying. She also says he cut off her cable service at the home, and her cell phone. 

There's more ... Sonya says Master P told her he was going to have her SUV repossessed ... which, she points out, would force her and the children to walk in the blazing summer heat of the Valley -- possibly aggravating her hernia and vertigo.

Sonya wants MP to start forking over some cash while they sort out the divorce. In the docs, she says her soon-to-be-ex is estimated to be worth $178 million ... but he's yet to pay a cent of child or spousal support.

Jimmy Snuka Murder

Done In By His Own Autobiography

9/1/2015 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0901-jimmy-snuka-getty-01Cops say Jimmy Snuka has been lying about what REALLY happened the day his GF died for DECADES ... and his own autobiography helped convince cops he's the murderer.  

TMZ Sports has obtained documents from the grand jury that indicted the former WWF superstar ... which spells out why investigators believe he killed Nancy Argentino in 1983.  

Long story short ... cops say Snuka told investigators in 1983 that Nancy injured her head while the two were "fooling around" outside of their motel room in Allentown, PA when he pushed her and she fell, striking her head.

Fast forward to 2012 ... when Snuka published his autobiography, "Superfly: The Jimmy Snuka Story" in which Jimmy's story changes RADICALLY. 

In the book, Snuka says Nancy slipped and fell on her own while going to the bathroom at a rest stop. He makes no mention of an altercation whatsoever.  

Well, cops took notice of the extreme change in his story and reopened the case -- ultimately, determining there was enough evidence to prove Snuka laid a serious beatdown on Nancy, which directly caused her death.  

Snuka was arrested today in his NJ home. He has since posted bail.

Judge Joe Brown is celebrating his freedom after doing the exact opposite of hard time -- 5 days in a Memphis jail for contempt of court -- and lashing out at the court that sent him to the pokey. 

Judge Joe sounded off on TMZ Live today -- hours after his release -- accusing the Shelby County, Tennessee court system of widespread racism.  

Brown goes as far as saying black lives don't matter in Shelby -- but believes he's now in good company after his brief stint in lockup. Think ... mini MLK or Mandela.
