Exclusive Details

0708-burt-jenner-TMZ-01Caitlyn Jenner just scored another grandchild -- her oldest son, Burt Jenner, is a dad ... but someone beat him to the punch on handing down his name.

Burt tells TMZ it's family tradition for all male Jenner names to start with a "B" ... and he was planning to go with Burt Jr., but his gf's sister laid claim to Burton when she had a son. So, they went with plan B(odhi).

Burt and Valerie kept the birth low key -- we're told the only hospital visitors were Burt's stepdad and Valerie's BFF. Caitlyn hasn't met her grandson yet.

The Band Perry Alleged 'Terroristic Threat' Suspect Pilot with Anger Management Issues

Exclusive Details

0705-dzmitry-papou-mug-shot-01

One of the suspects who allegedly threatened violence at a concert featuring The Band Perry is a pilot.

Dzmitry Papou was arrested for making terroristic threats at the Delaware venue where the band was set to perform Sunday night. Cops say Dzmitry and another man made a threat of violence. The band and cops decided it was best to postpone the concert.

We did some digging, and found Papou has a private pilot license, which he got after completing an anger management course. We've spoken with flight schools and the FAA, and there's no general requirement for an anger management course as a condition to getting a pilot's license.

It's unclear why Papou was required to take such a course, however, an FAA rep tells us an anger management course could be required if there's a history of psychiatric problems.

J.R. Smith Selling My Body Tatted Tees Making Huge $$

6/28/2016 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0628-jr-smith-tattoos-shirt-front-GETTY-FRESH_BREWED_TEES-01Tons of people want a body like J.R. Smith -- and now they can have it ... 'cause the NBA star is selling t-shirts of his tatted physique ... and making a TON of cash in the process. 

Smith's inked up physique dominated the Internet when he refused to put a shirt on following the NBA Finals -- and a Cleveland-based clothing company saw a huge chance to cash in on the topless attention.

We spoke with Tony Madalone of Fresh Brewed Tees who immediately commissioned replicas of Smith's upper body for shirts ... and he says they've already sold 1,000 units ($35 a pop) in less than 24 hours. 

What's interesting ... the company realized some of J.R.'s tats could be problematic because they're based off trademarked images ... such as Michael Jordan's "Jumpman" logo. 

0628-jr-smith-tattoos-shirt-back-SUB-GETTY-FRESH_BREWED_TEES-01

So, in an effort to skirt the issue ... FBT altered some of the tats. Some of the changes -- they removed the name "Jordan" from a #23 jersey and modified the "Jumpman" logo. 

By the way, Obama famously told Smith to put a shirt on after the victory ... wonder if this counts?
