Exclusive Details

Jennifer Lopez MovingJennifer Lopez loves her beautiful big ass, but not her beautiful big ass house ... because she's unloading it.

JLo is selling her 3+ acre, 17,000 square-foot Hidden Hills estate, because it's just ridiculously big for her small family.  

We're told Jennifer and her 2 kids have their sights set on Malibu ... a smaller house with a better view.  

She'll definitely have the cash to buy something new. She purchased the Hidden Hills mansion for $8.2 mil in 2010 and is asking for a cool $17 MILLION.

No word yet if Casper is included in the sale.

Multiple sources say the documentary will include interaction with Bruce's kids and ex-wife Kris and how they are receiving the news.

One source familiar with the production tells us when Bruce talked openly with the family, at one point Kris "lost it." 

We're told all of Bruce's kids -- the boys and girls -- have been "extremely supportive." 

Our sources say the docuseries will air on E.

Kim Kardashian

Dodges Ticket for Banging ...

An Illegal U-Turn

1/28/2015 8:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0128-kim-kardashian-pulled-over-x17
Kim Kardashian's made her share of wrong turns (we're looking at you Kris Humphries), but the latest got her in trouble with cops ... temporarily, anyway.

Kim got pulled over for making an illegal U-turn in Calabasas on Tuesday ... as she was leaving Kourtney's house. 

But our Kardashian sources say Kim pulled off a chick special -- meaning she managed to talk her way out of the ticket. We don't know what Kim was wearing when the cop walked up to her SUV -- besides a smile -- but it worked ... for her.

Warning: Results will vary if you try this at home.

'Real Housewives' NeNe Leakes

Warns Kenya and Claudia

Call Me Bipolar and I'll Sue

1/28/2015 4:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0128-nene-leakes-kenya-claudia-tmz-01

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes says it doesn't matter they're all on a reality show  -- if Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan don't zip their lips she'll sue.

Both Moore and Jordan got warned by Leake's lawyers Tuesday to stop damaging her brand with smack talk. NeNe's pissed at Jordan for calling her bipolar and, even worse, sporting bad veneers. Her beef with Moore is unclear.

Two things strike us. It's a little "pot calling the kettle black" because NeNe's been known to go after other cast members ... por ejemplo saying Claudia was such a tramp "her clit has left her body."

And you gotta wonder what producers think about their stars setting limits on the drama.

JaMarcus Russell

Poppin Bottles With Rick Ross

1/28/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0127-julia-beverly-jamarcus-russell-instagram-01JaMarcus Russell might've finally given up on his NFL dreams, but his dreams of living like a boss look very alive 'cause TMZ Sports has a pic of the former #1 overall pick hanging with one of the biggest stars in rap ... Rick Ross.

The two hung out on January 16th after Ross performed the same day at the Nightown nightclub in Destin, Florida. We're told Russell -- a HUGE fan -- heard about the show and drove all the way in to chop it up with Rozay. 

Judging from the pic, the two seemed to hit it off -- and had a great time while partying with several bottles of Ross' Luc Belaire Rare Rose.  

Here's the thing ... Russell has struggled with substance abuse in the past (sizzurp) ... and also had a close call with foreclosure -- so it's interesting to see him balling out with booze and a fancy piece of jewelry on his wrist.  

On a more hilarious note -- the reason why Russell is partly cropped out of the picture is because the woman who took the photo is Julia Beverly -- the founder of Ozone Magazine and Pimp C's biographer -- and she didn't know who he was.
 
Oops.

Brittney Griner & Glory Johnson

Say Yes to the

Very, Very Tall Dress

1/27/2015 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

012715_brittney_griner_tlc_launch Engaged WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson are 6'8" and 6'3" respectively, so when it came time to find a wedding gown ... they needed help from the folks at "Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta."

And it wasn't easy. According to our sources, it will actually be Johnson who will be wearing the dress ... while Griner will go with a suit.

During the taping of the episode, set to air Friday on TLC, we're told Glory had to try on a bunch of dresses to find one that fits right ... cause most brides didn't average 9.2 rebounds/game last season.

We're told even though Brittney won't be wearing a gown, she was very active in helping to pick one out ... which is more help than most women get.

Joan Rivers

Melissa Sues Clinic

Over Mom's Death

1/26/2015 1:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0126-melissa-rivers-joan-rivers-endoscopy-clinic-TMZ-01
Melissa Rivers has just filed a huge lawsuit against the clinic where Joan Rivers' heart stopped beating ... and Melissa's lawyer says the doctors acted like a bunch of groupies and not medical professionals.

The lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- claims gross medical malpractice, alleging during the 20 minutes doctors tried to bring Joan back to life, they didn't think to perform a tracheotomy, which facilitates breathing.

Melissa says, "The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible," adding, "Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better." 

In addition to suing the clinic, Melissa has sued Joan's personal doctor, Gwen Korovin. According to the lawsuit, she should not have been permitted in the room where the procedure was being performed, yet she jumped in and announced, "I'll go first." 

The suit claims another doctor took cellphone pics of Rivers before the emergency, while she was under sedation, with Korovin in the photos, saying Joan "will like to see these in the recovery area."

According to the lawsuit, Korovin left the room in the middle of the emergency and the allegation is that she left because she knew she wasn't supposed to be there in the first place and "wanted to avoid getting caught."  The suit says Korovin simply abandoned Joan.

And get this. According to the suit, in the middle of the emergency, another doctor took issue with a colleague who wanted to scope the affected area, saying, "Renuka, you're such a curious cat. You always want to know what's going on." The suit says the doctor refused to authorize the scope.

Melissa's lawyer spoke to The NY Daily News, which broke the story, and quotes lawyer Jeffrey Bloom who says, "Had doctors acted as physicians for Joan Rivers instead of groupies, Joan Rivers would have been doing 'Fashion Police' last week." 

Yorkville Endoscopy has been under intense scrutiny and they are set to lose their accreditation at the end of the month.

'Real Housewives of O.C.'

Jeana Keough Returns ...

On a Short Leash

1/24/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Jeana Keough Returning Real Housewives Of Orange County Ain't nothin' like an original ... Jeana Keough is coming back to "The Real Housewives of Orange County" -- but she'll be a part-time cast member ... for now.   

Jeana's been shouting from the rooftops about her return to the show she left in 2009 -- but production sources tell TMZ her camera time will be limited to start the season. We're told Bravo execs want to see if fans are still into Jeana ... before they go all in. 

Of course, 'Housewives' fans remember Jeana for her epic fight with Tamra Barney -- one of the greatest in reality TV history -- and we're told things might get dicey again between them this season.  

Just a hunch, but a rematch would probably cement a full-time role for Jeana. When it comes to the 'Housewives' ... if it bleeds it leads.

NFL Pro Bowl

Wives Dragon Players ...

To Wild Welcome Party

1/23/2015 3:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0123_komodo_party_LAUNCHNFL Pro Bowlers might be bad asses on the field -- but when it comes to exotic reptiles, they're giant wussies  ... and TMZ Sportsgot pics to prove it.

Antonio Cromartie, Drew Brees, Golden Tate, Chris Harris Jr. were among the players at a Pro Bowl welcome party at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix Thursday night -- and came face-to-face with giant snakes, lizards, and alligators.

The Phoenix Herpetological Society brought the creatures, and its prez Russ Johnson tells us most of the players hung back while their wives and kids rushed to pet the animals. He adds some NFLers did eventually come over ... after a couple drinks.

Liquid courage never hurts.

FUN FACT: The huge lizard Terricka Cromartie is holding (or maybe it's holding her) is a water monitor. Looks like a Komodo dragon, but it's not. The more you know. 

The Beastie Boys

We're Not Wanted Anymore

So Someone Needs to Pay Our Lawyers

1/23/2015 12:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0123-beastie-boys-getty-3

The Beastie Boys say they can't find work because of MCA's death ... and they're so strapped for cash they can't even fight in court without someone covering the bill. 

Here's the dilemma ... The Boys have beef with Monster Energy, which jacked some of their songs for an ad campaign. The guys actually won their case and scored a $1.7 million judgment. But a lot of that was eaten away by their lawyers, and they want Monster to foot that bill.

The surviving members say -- since Adam "MCA" Yauch died from cancer in 2012 -- no one wants them anymore so every dollar counts. And they're on the hook to their lawyers for a whopping $2.4 MILLION in lawyers' fees.

A judge hasn't decided yet, but typically the side that wins in cases like this gets at least some of their lawyers' fees back.

Boxer Jermain Taylor

Cuffed by Cops Again ...

After MLK Day Gun Incident

1/21/2015 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0121_jermain-taylor-MUGMiddleweight boxing champ Jermain Taylor saved Arkansas cops the trip -- turning himself in today for his SECOND gun-related arrest in just 3 days.  

The 36-year-old Taylor was arrested Monday for felony assault after allegedly firing 2 shots during an altercation at an MLK Day parade. That bust violated the terms of his jail release for ANOTHER case ... where he is accused of shooting his cousin.

Cops say Taylor flagged down a Little Rock patrol car ... told cops his situation, and then he was hauled off to jail. Again.  

Taylor, who's scheduled to fight in less than a month -- will be behind bars overnight. He's expected to have a bail hearing tomorrow over the violation.

'Wicked Tuna' Star

Arrested for VERY Aggressive Flirting

Exclusive Details

David Marciano Arrested
"Wicked Tuna" star David Marciano does NOT have a way with women -- he was arrested for allegedly grabbing a hotel employee by her hair ..in a flirting move gone awry. 

According to cops in Morehead City, North Carolina -- the town where "Wicked Tuna" is filming -- Marciano was busted for assault around 1:10 AM Monday. Police say Marciano grabbed the woman's ponytail in a lame attempt to get frisky ... but it wasn't well received. 

Marciano was arrested for assault ... the employee told police he seemed intoxicated, but cops think he was sober ... which presumably makes it worse.

The show is standing by their star ... no plans to 86 him, but a show rep tells us they're still taking the arrest seriously.
