Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian finally came back together in public -- for the first time in months -- and all it took for them to reunite was Kris Jenner getting separated.
Khloe and Lamar were photographed driving together -- she had the wheel, he rode shotgun -- near her mom's home in Calabasas ... right around the time news broke about Kris and Bruce Jenner's split on Tuesday.
Nothing too warm and fuzzy about the look on their faces in the SUV ... but it is the first time KK and LO did anything together -- besides discussing his drug addiction -- since early summer.
Despite the fact they appear to be rallying for Kris ... our sources say Khloe and Lamar's marriage is still much closer to being over than reconciled.
Even momager Kris might not be able to fix this one -- plus, she's got her own issues now.
Kris and Bruce Jenner
10/8/2013 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
4:01 PM PT Sources say Bruce and Kris have been separated since June and they are reiterating what we are told from others -- that there is no plan to divorce.
3:39 PM PT Sources connected to Kris and Bruce tell TMZ ... Kris -- who is the moving force in the separation -- has NOT contacted a divorce lawyer. We're told as of now she's fine with the status quo. Fact is ... they've been separated for awhile, and Kris and Bruce don't want to screw up their reality show ... which is raking in $40 mil for the family.
Kris and Bruce Jenner have separated.
The couple issued a statement saying, "We are living separately and we are much happier this way."
Sources connected with the family tell TMZ ... Bruce has been living in Malibu full-time and spending a lot of time with his sons Brody and Brandon. Kris is firmly planted in Calabasas with her daughters.
We're told Bruce has privately told his sons living away from Kris was just the way the relationship evolved.
In their statement, they say they will continue to have love and respect for each other.
It's unclear how the split will impact their reality show.
Shortly before news of the split came out, Kris was spotted cruising solo through Calabasas ... or as she and Bruce now call it -- her side of town.
'I'm Finally Free'
10/8/2013 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner told people at an event over the weekend, "I'm finally free to do what I want and live life the way I want."
Bruce and his sons were at Virginia International Raceway -- Bruce was racing a Lamborghini during the events. Bruce was hanging at the Lamborghini tent with a bunch of girls.
Bruce made it clear to several people in the tent ... his life is now different from the way it had been for years. He said he was getting closer to his sons -- something he hadn't done when they were growing up, which caused a major problem in their relationship.
Bruce did not reveal he was separated from Kris, but the people present said it was shocking how open he was about how different his life was now, and how open he was in "flirting" with the girls.
One last thing ... a well-placed source who works on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" told us Bruce became extremely open about living on his terms after his most recent cancer bout last month ... which could explain why suddenly Bruce and Kris revealed the separation.
If You Want Marriage Tips ...
I Got Nuthin'!

When it comes to Jane Lynch and marriage ... she wants you to know the doctor is NOT in -- and yes, you can take that a couple of different ways.
We caught up with Jane outside her usual spot ... Kings Road Cafe, where she was chilling with Matt Sorum -- the Velvet Revolver drummer and soon-to-be groom -- and we've never seen her laugh this hard.
Jane absolutely busted up when we asked if she was giving Matt tips on achieving marital bliss. Her response is hysterical ... and maybe a little sad.
TMZ broke the story ... the "Glee" star is divorcing her wife, Dr. Lara Embry -- though she seems totally chill with the sitch in this clip.
Crying in Vegas
During First Post-Liam Performance
9/22/2013 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus broke down crying in Vegas yesterday ... while she performed a song rumored to be about her break up with Liam Hemsworth.
Miley twerked it up on stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival -- but the tears started flowing hard once she began singing "Wrecking Ball."
As we previously reported -- the couple has called it quits ... and Liam has gotten tight with telenovela actress Eiza Gonzales -- who BTW is crazy hot.
Despite the cry-fest ... Miley cleaned up for her second performance of the night.
And wore this.
Dwyane Wade's Ex-Wife
It's My Constitutional Right
To Trash Talk His Ass
9/20/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It never ends ... Dwyane Wade's ex-wife is poking the hornet's nest again -- this time demanding the right to publicly bash the NBA star.
Dwyane and Siovaughn Funches wrapped up their bitter six-year divorce in July, after Wade agreed to provide a generous financial settlement. As part of the deal Funches agreed to a gag order, prohibiting her from talking smack about their relationship.
But Funches has now filed legal docs challenging the settlement, claiming she never agreed to several terms -- including the gag order.
She wants a judge to nullify the agreement, which would force Wade back to the bargaining table.
As for the gag order, Funches says ... if Wade is free to bash her in his book , she should have the same right to bash him. A judge has yet to rule on her request.
Calls to Dwyane's people weren't returned.
Bethenny Frankel, Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel and soon-to-be ex-hubby Jason Hoppy can't pull a Watergate on each other anymore, because a judge has now prohibited them from secretly recording each other ... and for good reason.
Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ ... since their separation, Jason has secretly recorded Bethenny on both video and audio. What's more ... we're told he also recorded their nanny and the Skinny Girl staff, working out of Bethenny's home-office. And, we're told Jason has gotten into the emails of Bethenny and her staff.
Our sources say the recordings don't go both ways -- Bethenny has never recorded Jason.
TMZ has learned ... the judge has ordered both Jason and Bethenny NOT use tape recorders, cell phones or computers to record each other. They're also prohibited from recording the nanny. And they're prohibited from intercepting emails.
We've learned the judge ordered Bethenny and Jason to ante up any video or audio recordings by October 15. That should be interesting.

Hours after "officially" announcing his split from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth hit the town with ANOTHER woman last night -- his mother.
Liam, along with breeder of blue-eyed, Australian demigods Leonie Hemsworth, was spotted leaving the famous Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip together.
Earlier in the day, reps for Miley and Liam announced their engagement is off ... but offered few details as to what caused the split.
Liam didn't seem too crushed over the breakup this weekend, when he was spittin' game to Mexican singer/actress/dimepiece Eiza González in a Vegas nightclub.
As for Liam's mom -- think she's upset about the split from Miley? Or relieved?

REBOUNDING IN VEGAS
Major Flirting With Hot Chick
9/16/2013 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Call him Dennis Rodman, 'cause Liam Hemsworth was rebounding like a CHAMP in Vegas last night ... spittin' some serious game to a smokin' hot chick -- and from the looks of things, it worked.
Just one day before reps "officially" announced the demise of his engagement to Miley Cyrus, Liam and 5 of his friends hit up XS Nightclub ... where he ran into 23-year-old Eiza González.
FYI -- Eiza happens to be a singer/actress (seems like someone's got a type).
They drank ... he smoked ... they flirted ... they were thisclose ... and people in the club said they never left each other's side before leaving the joint together at 2 am.
Miley and Liam
OVERT SIGNS OF SPLIT
9/15/2013 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's one thing not to be seen together, but when you unfollow someone on Twitter it's pretty clear ... Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are dunzo.
Miley 86'd Liam from the social media site yesterday. He's still following her, but it takes 2 to follow in a fiance sort of way.
Miley and Liam have barely been seen together in the last few months, and when they were they looked like they were in pain.
Was Liam pissed at Miley's twerking video? Was he upset with what she was wearing at the VMAs? Was he infuriated at what she did to Robin Thicke?
So much to be pissed over.
1:40 PM PT -- Adding more fuel to the fire ... Liam was spotted out last night in Vegas at the Mayweather fight sitting near "Twilight" star Ashley Greene.

David Tutera's Ex
It's David's Fault
We Split the Twins
9/13/2013 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
David Tutera's ex is pointing the finger at the "My Fair Wedding" host, claiming it's Tutera's fault they're splitting up their twins after a nasty breakup.
Ryan Jurica called in to "TMZ Live" this morning, claiming David made a unilateral decision to separate the children at birth when their 10-year relationship blew up.
Ryan and David had fraternal twins through a surrogate in July, and the births triggered a bitter custody battle. The complication stems from the fact that each man fertilized an egg from the same woman ... that was then implanted in the same surrogate, who gave birth to the two babies at the same time ... meaning Ryan is the biological dad of one child, and David of the other.
Despite David's decision, Ryan tells us he'd rather keep the kids together. He insists splitting the kids up is just a temporary measure until a final custody arrangement has been reached ... but that could take a while.
