Kim Richards

Dogged with Another Lawsuit

Over Pit bull

6/2/2015 4:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602_kim_richards_and_dog_TMZKim Richards has been sued again over yet another pit bull attack at her home.

Kelly Crossley claims in a new lawsuit, she was at Kim's home last September when Kingsley the pit viciously got a piece of her. Crossley claims in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, she suffered "grave bodily injuries."

It's the 4th alleged attack at the mouth of Kingsley. Kim's friend, 80-year-old Kay Rozario, Kyle Richards' daughter Alexia and the dog's trainer David Utter all say they were attacked by the pooch.

In Crossley's case, she says in her lawsuit Kim disavowed ownership of Kingsley, claiming the dog was owned by her cancer-ridden ex-husband Monty.

Crossley is suing for unspecified damages.

Tom Hanks' Son

Lets the N-Word Fly, Uncensored

... But He Has Limits

6/2/2015 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chet Haze wanted to say it ... felt he had the RIGHT to say it, so he did it -- he unapologetically dropped the n-word on camera.

Tom Hanks' rapping son posted the vid, attempting to clarify his earlier statement -- that he identifies with hip hop culture, so that makes it alright for him to use the word.

Don't worry ... Chet says he'd never walk up to a random person and say, "my n**ga."

But check out the clip. Weird to watch him say it or not?

Bobby Flay

The Sign of a Bitter Divorce

6/2/2015 3:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-bobby-flay-getty-01Bobby Flay got a big honor Tuesday with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it was not exactly a banner day for the famous chef. 

As Bobby raised his fist in victory, someone else gave him the fist ... in the form of a flying indictment, calling him a "Cheater."

0602-SUB-bobby-flay-hollywood-star-cheater-TMZ-03The banner -- tethered to an airplane high above Hollywood -- clearly refers to allegations in his super bitter divorce with estranged wife Stephanie March. The actress has alleged in legal docs that Bobby cheated on her.

We don't know who commissioned the banner, but it flew around the area for about an hour.

Jessica Alba

Not Banking On Her Bod ...

But It's Still Banging!

6/2/2015 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0602_jessica_alba_sexy_magazine_spread_launch So what's hotter about Jessica Alba -- her size 0 figure (educated guess) or her big, fat, enormous bank account? Trick question ... it's a tie, and she's flaunting both this month.

The actress slash co-founder of The Honest Company is on the covers of Shape Magazine and Forbes at the same time. One focuses on her working hardbody, and the other on her body of hard work. 

Jess' company is now valued at a billion dollars, Forbes says her personal fortune is at $200 mil -- and our eyes say her body is still a 10 ... at 34.

Numbers are awesome.


Ariana Grande

Only One Direction for Niall ...

The Friend Zone!!

6/2/2015 1:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-ariana-grande-niall-horan-INSTAGRAM-01Ariana Grande and Niall Horan hung out way past their bedtime Monday night -- but don't get your panties in a bunch just yet 1Ders.

Our Ariana sources say the One Direction singer was invited to her concert in London Monday night. After the performance, she and Niall hung out backstage, but it was anything but intimate. Ariana's manager Scooter Braun and both of their entourages were also there.

After the backstage pow-wow, the group headed off to Cirque Le Soir nightclub -- and stayed out till 3:30 AM. But when the fun was over ... we're told they went their separate ways.

Too bad it wasn't a real hook-up since the normally rabid 1D fans have actually been pretty positive about Ariana. Must be the wild video of their after-party that won 'em over.

Steven Spielberg

Dumps Malibu Temple of Ocean Views

6/2/2015 2:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0602-steven-spielberg-house

Steven Spielberg just produced a new blockbuster ... as in the $34 MILLION he got for selling his Malibu mini-compound -- and that's 5 times his original purchase price!

The one-acre, beachfront spread looks like it was lifted from a "Jurassic Park" set -- just without the dinosaurs.

It boasts 7 bedrooms, 9 baths, a guest house, swimming pool and massage room with a view of the ocean. There's also a top-notch screening room, because it wouldn't be a Spielberg home without one.

The mega director/producer originally paid around $6.6 million to snatch up two adjacent lots where the house sits -- so it looks like he's gonna pocket some cash on this sale.

But the poor guy will now be forced to watch the sunsets ... from just up the road at his main home in Pacific Palisades.

Name Inspired by Miss America Pageant

6/2/2015 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-04Caitlyn Jenner chose her name after being inspired by the Miss America pageant.

Caitlyn told Vanity Fair she had been watching the pageant in the last couple of years to come up with ideas for names. Two names resonated with her -- Heather and Cathy.

It sounds like Heather and Cathy were front-runners but she also liked Caitlyn. Ultimately, Caitlyn's assistant Rhonda tipped the scales when she suggested Caitlyn.  

Jenner had been on the fence but Rhonda pushed him over the line.

Jenni Rivera's Kids

Kids Moving On …

Time to Cash In On Mom’s Estate

6/2/2015 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_jenny_rivera_house_launchJenni Rivera's family is ready to unload one of her prized possessions -- the massive estate she designed 3 years before her death ... and they're hoping to get $4.5 mil for it.

Jenni’s dream home sits on 4 acres of hilltop land overlooking Encino, CA. The estate has 7 bedrooms and 10 baths including marble floors and a double wrought iron staircase.

The legendary Mexican singer originally bought the property in 2009 for $3.3 mil, but sunk another $500k worth of personal upgrades into the place. Right now Jenni’s kids are living there, but we're told they're ready to bolt if the right buyer comes along. 

Check out the gallery -- if you're into private hiking trails, and pools with a waterfalls ... this is your kinda pad. Of course, you also need a few mil in the bank.

Lil Wayne

Cops Arrest Suspect

In Tour Bus Shooting

6/2/2015 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-lil-wayne-shooter-tour-bus-mug-shot-01
The guy accused of shooting up Lil Wayne's tour bus is finally in police custody.

Jimmy Carlton Winfrey surrendered early Tuesday morning in Cobb County, Georgia. He faces charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, possession of a firearm by a felon, and criminal gang activity.

A judge issued an arrest warrant for Winfrey, but it took a month before he turned himself in. According to his booking report, he had a  gunshot scar on his wrist. 

Wayne's bus was shot up in April after a club gig in Atlanta. Police believe Winfrey -- who has ties to Wayne's rival, Young Thug -- opened fire to gain favor with the Bloods

I Didn't Want to Look

Like a Guy in a Dress

6/2/2015 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlyn Jenner did not want to look like a pretend woman when she transitioned from a man to a woman.

Caitlyn told Vanity Fair it was extremely important that she presented herself as feminine.

Beyond cosmetics, Caitlyn talks about the isolation she felt in the '80s, and how the Internet became her salvation because it provided a connection with people in similar circumstances.

And Caitlyn talks about her role models, many of whom are famous including Laverne Cox from "Orange Is the New Black."

Kim Kardashian

Boy or Girl ...

I'm Not Baby Shopping Yet

6/2/2015 8:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0602-kim-kanye-baby-clothes-gettyKim Kardashian and Kanye West might very well be having a baby boy -- but don't read too much into those photos of them shopping for little boy clothes.

According to our sources, Kim and Kanye are playing it really close to the vest on the baby's sex right now -- maybe they know, maybe they don't ... but they're not saying.

Kimye was seen Monday afternoon purusing the boys section in a New York boutique, so the Internet collectively figured ... they must be having a boy! But we're told Kim and Kanye were shopping for something for Kourtney's daughter Penelope, and they just happened to be drawn to items in the boys section.

Not to mention ... they are holding up clothes for a toddler, not a newborn.

Expect a carefully orchestrated announcement (*cough, Kris Jenner*) to come in the near future.

New Identity Creates Problems

at the Golf Course

6/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_caitlyn_jenner_sherwood_country-club_2Caitlyn Jenner has some tricky day-to-day changes in store, including where she eats, drinks and changes clothes ... at the country club which has become her home away from home.

Bruce Jenner became a member of Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA 15 years ago. He golfed there almost every day and established close relationships with his golfing buddies. It's a very exclusive, ritzy club with an initiation fee ranging between $150,000 and $300,000.

But now that Bruce is Caitlyn, the rules partially segregate her from the male members.

For starters, there's a grill in the locker room that is male only. The women's locker room has its own eating area which is way more scaled down.

Our Sherwood sources say the board will enforce the rules, which means the camaraderie Bruce shared with the other members will be impeded now that she's Caitlyn.

But we're also told the board is open to an appeal by Caitlyn herself. She can attempt to make a case that she can keep the same privileges she had when she was Bruce.

The club is closed for renovations until December, which means there's time to sort things out.
