Tyga Kylie Makes Me Sick If You Ask How Much I Spend On Her

10/18/2016 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyga went into serious medical distress mode Tuesday morning when the lawyer for a jeweler started asking him questions about how much loot he shells out for GF Kylie Jenner.

Celeb jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills hauled Tyga into a hearing to determine if he has enough money to satisfy a $200k judgment for a fancy chain and timepiece.

Tyga, who flipped off our photog and aimed a pretend gun at him on the way in, was pretty accommodating, telling Jason's lawyer, Boris Treyzon, about his income and what he owns. But then Treyzon started grilling Tyga about various gifts he's given Kylie, and that triggered a 911-type emergency.

We're told Tyga said he started feeling extremely ill, lost memory and became confused, telling the lawyer he just couldn't go on.

The tricky part ... Kylie has cooed openly on social media about various gifts she's received from her BF, including a Mercedes as a birthday present. If he can afford that, he can afford to pay Jason. But, if Tyga says he didn't give Kylie all that stuff, he's effectively saying she's a social media liar.

The hearing's been rescheduled for November 1st ... the same day Kylie's set to come in for a separate interview. 


Kim Kardashian to Cops Thieves Were a Bunch of Amateurs

10/11/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004-kim-kardashian-tmz-11Kim Kardashian's robbers were rank amateurs ... and it showed from start to finish.

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ ... she told cops the robbers were extremely hesitant and tentative ... whisking her in and out of the bathtub, pointing a gun at her head ... walking away and then pulling the gun again for no apparent reason.

We're also told it seemed to Kim that the robbers were arguing over how to pull off the heist. Remember ... the robbers only spoke French.

As for the robbers mimicking cops ... we're told not even close. The uniforms looked like they came from a Halloween store.

The thieves used a garden-variety backpack to carry the jewels out. But they were extremely careless ... a $33,000 necklace ended up on the street as they made their getaway. And they left zip ties and duct tape behind.

Still ... they got away with it -- for now.


Kim Kardashian Robbery Diamond Cross Found ... Small Change Next to Ring

10/10/2016 8:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-kim-kardashian-tmz-07Kim Kardashian's robbers did NOT make a clean getaway -- they dropped one item, and we've learned the blinged-out piece came straight from famed jeweler, Jacob and Co. 

The recovered jewelry is a platinum mounted diamond cross ... according to our sources. Amazingly, a passerby found it on a sidewalk outside the apartment complex the day after the robbery. We're told it's worth $33,180.

Police are checking the pendant for any traces of DNA that could potentially help crack the case. 

1010-kim-kardashian-pendant-sub-01As we first told you, the robbers made off with a total of 13 items, worth $5.6 million ... and that includes the massive $4 million diamond ring. 

Hard to tell if it has enough diamonds to be the actual pendant, but Kim was sporting this cross in Paris just 2 days before the robbery went down.


Kim Kardashian My Bling Was the Real Thing

10/7/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-kim-kardashian-ring-INSTAGRAM-01Kim Kardashian is no faker ... we found out the stolen ring at the center of the Paris robbery really was as advertised ... insanely expensive.

Kim showed the ring off frequently, and seemed happy that media outlets were setting the value in the millions. After it was stolen, Paris authorities said it was worth $4.5 million. 

Sources familiar with the case tell us ... Kim has already submitted an insurance claim, setting the value of the ring at an even $4 million. 

The insurance docs describe the ring in detail ... a 20 carat emerald cut stone.

According to the docs, 13 items were taken, with a total value of $5.6 million ... significantly less than the reported $10 million or $11 million. 


Kim Kardashian My Wealth Won't Be in Your Face Anymore

10/6/2016 8:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1004-kim-kardashian-tmz-09Kim Kardashian has found God -- at a discount -- because after the robbery wealth will no longer be the driver of her brand.

Sources close to Kim tell us ... she actually agrees with critics who say she put a target on her back by flaunting her wealth and jewelry on social media. A number of people have been critical of Kim for posing with her $4.5 million diamond ring in the apartment shortly before the hit.

We're told Kim is taking a month off work and when she returns she's pulling back in a big way on social media. She won't be displaying her personal wealth ... and she'll even be less ostentatious with the promotion of her fashion line.

Kim has been rocked to her core after being tied up with a gun to her head. She's saying privately ... "Material things mean nothing. It's not all about the money," adding, "It's not worth it."


A$AP Rocky We're Flossing and Nobody's Stopping Us

10/6/2016 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A$AP Rocky's not retreating in fear after the Kim K jewelry heist ... he's still proudly flossing.

The rapper was leaving Catch in WeHo Wednesday night when we asked about hooking up his homie, Lil Uzi, with advice after gifting him a $100k chain.

Check out the vid ... Rocky's definitely got some advice -- for would-be thieves out there.

Now that's purple swag. 

Laura Prepon & Ben Foster Flashing Engagement Rock

10/5/2016 8:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-main-laura-prepon-ben-foster-getty-01Laura Prepon is weighing in a little heavier these days after Ben Foster slipped a diamond engagement ring on her ... which made its debut in NYC.

Ben and Laura have only been together, at least publicly, since the summer, but he popped the question anyway. The "Orange Is the New Black" star strategically positioned her bling Tuesday night at the premiere of her new movie, "The Girl on the Train."

It's Laura's first engagement, and Ben's second. He was engaged to Robin Wright, but they called it off in 2015.



A$AP Rocky Helps Bling Out Lil Uzi Vert $100k Chain is Epic!!

10/5/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A$AP Rocky just hooked up the homie Lil Uzi Vert with a chain for the ages ... that even looks like the up-and-coming rapper.

Uzi's chain is made up of 10,000 diamonds and gems -- including pink, sapphire, white, canary and chocolate diamonds -- and features Gucci links like Pharrell's famous necklace. The ice didn't come cheap -- we are told it's worth around $100k!

Custom jeweler Ben Baller of IF & Co. tells TMZ ... he considers this one of the top 3 chains he's ever done. He made it for Uzi after meeting him through his business partner, A$AP. We're told A$AP and Travis Barker vouched for Uzi, and the deal was done.

Ben says Lil Uzi's already ordered a 2nd chain, but this one's gonna be hard to top.


Kim Kardashian Ring Can Be Tracked But Crooks Still Have Upper Hand

10/4/2016 10:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003_kim_kardashian_ring_infphotoKim Kardashian's confident she'll get back her multi-million dollar ring because it's very rare with unique identifiers.

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ ... she believes if anyone tries to sell the ring they'll find it. The police report she filed includes the diamond's inscription number and other markers that will raise red flags if it ends up on the market. 

The Gemological Institute of America says inscribed diamonds have a microscopic number laser-inscripted on the girdle of the stone. Once a police report is filed, any lost diamonds would be flagged in the system, and if they pop up for a cleaning, grading or possible sale ... police are called.

Even if the inscription is scratched off, rings like Kim's can be identified by special internal characteristics of the diamond ... according to the GIA.

It's not foolproof, of course. Big diamonds can be crushed into several pieces so they're less traceable -- and if crooks avoid legit jewelers ... there's less chance anyone reports a run-in with the stolen rock. 

Bottom line: Kim needs the thieves to make a dumb move in order to get back the diamond.


Kim Kardashian Held at Gunpoint Millions Stolen Kanye Cancels Show

Exclusive Details

Armed gunmen broke into Kim Kardashian's Paris apartment, taped her mouth shut and stole more than $10 million in jewelry and the emergency rippled quickly all the way to New York ... where Kanye bolted from the stage mid-concert.

There were 5 gunmen, posing as cops, who threatened the concierge and made him open the door to her room.  

Our sources say at least 2 gunmen bound and gagged Kim with handcuffs and tape and then put her in the bathtub. We're told Kim begged them to spare her life, telling them she had babies at home.

The gunmen knew exactly what they were doing ... we're told they beelined it for her jewelry and took a $4.5 million ring and a jewelry box.

After the gunmen left she was able to break out of the restraints and called for help.

We're told Kim was badly shaken but unharmed, calling it "the worst moment in my life." She was interviewed by police and then hurriedly left Paris by private jet.

As for Kanye ... he was performing at the Meadows Festival in Queens, NY -- Yeezy was jamming in the middle of "Heartless" when he cut the music and made the announcement, stunning the crowd.

Hours before the robbery Kim posted video of her showing off outfits and wishing Blac Chyna a happy baby shower. 

She was staying in a luxury apartment complex, in a room similar to this one.

The purchase did the trick. Iggy gave French a shout-out on Instagram, after weeks of denying they've hooked up. 

He also got Nick's blessing, not that he needed it. 

Kanye West I Buy Chains Off Twitter

9/23/2016 9:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kanye West doesn't just rant on Twitter, he also makes deals ... as a guy in Toronto found out after 'Ye shocked him by making a purchase.

Maison Raksha, the jeweler behind Toronto Grillz, started making 14k gold “I Feel Like Pablo” necklaces right after Kanye dropped his album.

Raksha tells us he shot for the moon by tweeting Kanye to say he made a chain for Kim, and it could be hers for $500. He says he was surprised when Kanye's stylist responded, and said 'Ye would love it, but wanted the necklace to simply read "Pablo."

Raksha delivered a month ago, and Kanye wore the chain for his Harper's Bazaar cover shoot, and he's worn it on tour too.
