Robo-Kanye Lords Over Kardashian Brood A Bunch of Dummies

8/27/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-kanye-west-figures-revealedWorry not ... the Kardashians are still alive and well, and so is Taylor Swift, Donald Trump and Chris Brown. They're all dummies and part of Kanye's big L.A. art exhibit. Problem was ... Kanye was in NYC.

The art exhibit was an extension of Kanye's "Famous" music video. A blonde Kim and Kendall showed up, but Kanye was getting ready for his big VH1 performance at MSG.

So check out his solution ... it's super awesome. Kanye appeared in robot fashion, manipulating the device 2,500 miles away with a joystick so he could chat up the room.

Breaking News

0827-dwayne-wade-tmz-02Dwayne Wade's cousin, a 32-year-old mother of 4, was killed in Chicago Friday in what the NBA star is calling an "act of senseless gun violence."

Nykea Aldridge was pushing a baby stroller in Chicago's Parkway Gardens neighborhood when two men opened fire on another.  Aldridge was caught in the crossfire and struck in the head and arm ... she was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

0827-Nykea-Aldridge-facebookWade said Friday night, "My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough"

You'll remember ... Wade took the ESPYS stage a few months ago with Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul to spread a message of peace and to end senseless violence. 

Cops are questioning two men in connection with Aldridge's death.

EXCLUSIVE

Get those dollar bills ready, Chi-Town ... it's about to go down next week when V Live Chicago opens its doors, and TMZ has video of the wannabe strippers looking to twerk the poles.

We're told over 1,300 people poured into the Hard Rock Hotel for an insane casting call that featured strippers strutting their stuff in VERY flexible ways ... we'll leave it at that.

Around 160 will end up getting hired.

The job fair looked for everything -- strippers, bartenders, waitresses and security. But check out the vid ... the strippers had the joint cracking ... and totally outdid T.I.'s casting call in Atlanta. 

Throw it up, throw it up ... 

Britney Spears Flaunts It Before VMAs

EXCLUSIVE

0826_britney_spears_flaunt

Britney Spears is deploying her super hot body in an all-out media blitz ... before the eve of a huge appearance at the VMAs and right after the rollout of her new album.

We got the cover of "Flaunt" magazine, which is about to come out, the day before she hits the stage for what we're told is a high-tech performance to push her new album. Our VMA sources say there are no big surprises -- like a Madonna kiss or 12-foot python -- it's all about music.

Britney is everywhere ... her James Corden Carpool Karaoke went viral, she and Kanye are the clear stars of Sunday's VMAs, and her album, "Glory," just dropped.

BTW ... Britney said on Corden's show she was done with men. She was serious, at least in terms of the VMAs, because we're told her backup dancers for the show are all women.

Paris Hilton has regrets over humiliating Tara Reid in one of the most epic videos in the history of TMZ.

It's the 10-year anniversary of Paris and an unknown -- Kim Kardashian -- sauntering into Hyde nightclub in WeHo, as Paris' former BFF and then enemy Tara Reid watched behind the velvet rope. Paris gave Tara a stare will will live in infamy.

But on her way into LAX Friday, Paris said she feels bad about the whole thing.

We can't wait for the 10-year anniversary of the Lindsay Lohan/Brandon Davis/Paris Hilton "Firecrotch" video.  Sure she'll have something to say.

Kim Zolciak I Scored Double-Digit Karats!

8/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-kim-zolciak-tmz-01Kim Zolciak's left arm is getting a serious workout thanks to the 11 karats worth of ice her husband just put on her for their 5th anniversary.

Kroy Biermann slipped the new diamond on her a few months early, but you know Kim's not complaining. The couple got married on 11/11/11 ... hence the karat count for the gift, we're told.

Our sources say the NFL linebacker dropped $100k on the piece and keep in mind ... Kim was already hauling a 10 karat engagement rock! Modern etiquette says 5th anniversary gifts should be silverware -- but imagine her face if he'd gone that route.

Kroy's playing for the Buffalo Bills this season, so Kim's gonna be solo in Atlanta for a few months.

The ring will keep her company.

Diddy & Cassie We're Back On!! And the Cops Are Off the Case

8/26/2016 3:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0826_pdidd_cassie_tmz_getty-3
Cassie's had a change of heart -- she's back with Diddy ... despite a domestic incident last week in which cops were called.

We broke the story ... Cassie dumped Diddy and a heated argument ensued. Diddy allegedly grabbed Cassie's phone, jumped out of the car they were in and skedaddled.

The Beverly Hills police investigated the incident and determined it was just one of those things and no crime was committed. Diddy gave the phone back and there was no violence, so it came down to a case of no harm, no foul.

Even if the cops saw it differently, Cassie made it clear she didn't want her boo prosecuted so it would have been dropped anyway.

Make it work, guys.

Ryan Lochte Case Rio Cops Deserve Praise for Exposing 'Farce' ... Say Rio Cops

8/26/2016 2:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0826-ryan-lochte-tmz-02Authorities in Rio really showed Ryan Lochte and his teammates who's the boss -- just ask Rio authorities, who are patting themselves on the back ... hard!

The Court of Justice in Rio believes its handling of Lochte-gate brought "international prestige" to its city and required "courageous action." We know this because the court actually fired off a statement to the media saying so.

Rio police similarly shouted out the efforts of Rio police ... saying they uncovered the "farce" of the Team USA swimmers' story. 

The praise and adulation came 24 hours after Lochte was charged for lying to police -- a non-extraditable offense that Lochte has no intention of returning to Brazil to face.

But word among Rio's finest is ... they nailed it.

'Making a Murderer' Cops Planted My Blood ... Now There's a Test to Prove It!

8/26/2016 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0826-steven-avery-apSteven Avery is renewing his fight to get outta prison and believes there's better technology to prove the cops railroaded him while investigating Teresa Halbach's murder. 

Avery -- who is serving a life sentence without parole -- wants the state of Wisconsin to do radiocarbon testing to show the age of his blood that was found at the Halbach crime scene in 2005.

As he claimed in "Making a Murderer" ... Avery believes cops planted blood they'd previously drawn from him years earlier, during his rape conviction. Avery's hope is the new testing will back that up.

If successful, this would be the second time DNA testing got Avery off the hook -- his 1985 rape conviction was eventually overturned.
