Khloe Kardashian Trigger for Divorce ... She Wants Kids

5/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-khloe-lamar-tmz-02Khloe Kardashian told Lamar Odom she needed to end their marriage once and for all ... because the clock is ticking and she wants kids ... sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ.

Our sources say Khloe sat Lamar down recently and explained she wanted a family, and couldn't even start the process of looking until she was single again.

We're told Khloe made it clear to Lamar from the time he almost died last year ... she was dropping the divorce because she wanted to help him get better. She vowed not to re-file until he was able to run his own life day-to-day, and she believes he's at that point right now.

Khloe has made it clear to friends and family ... there has never been a romantic relationship since she filed for divorce the first time around in December 2013

Lamar, we're told, completely understood, and the 2 vow to remain friends, and Khloe has promised she'll help him whenever he needs it.

Vin Scully On All-Star Game 'Just Didn't Want to Do It'

5/27/2016 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully has a very simple explanation about why he passed on calling the All-Star game in San Diego in July ... telling TMZ Sports, "I just didn't want to." 

It's as simple as that.

Scully was reportedly approached by a Fox Sports executive recently and essentially offered anything he wanted to make it happen -- whether it was calling the whole game, 1 inning or just being a guest in the booth. But Vin respectfully declined the invitation. 

So, when we saw him out in Bev Hills Thursday, we asked him about it. 

FYI, Vin's been calling Dodgers games for 67 seasons -- he can do whatever he wants.

 

T.I. Shootout Ruins H.S. Gig He's Too Gangsta!

5/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-ti-tmz-02T.I.'s wallet got caught in the crossfire of that NYC shooting -- a huge high school graduation party thinks he's damaged goods after the violent incident ... and organizers are demanding a $55k refund. 

Tip was set to perform a concert in South Florida for grads from multiple high schools on June 11. The contract was signed and promoters had sent him $55,000 to retain his services -- but then the shootout happened.

TMZ has learned promoters fired off a legal notice saying, due to the shooting, "the quality of the Talents services is not satisfactory to our Client." They added ... the event was marketed "as a safe environment for the students."

Translation: We're worried kids will get shot if you do this show.

To be fair -- T.I. and his crew had nothing to do with the NYC incident. He hadn't even taken the stage when the shots rang out.

We've reached out to T.I. ... no word yet on how he plans to respond.

The Kardashians Quit Using Us for Facelifts!

5/27/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526_kim_kardashian_kylie-jenner-tmz-2Kim Kardashian and her family just dropped the hammer on a plastic surgeon who's been cashing in with something called the "Kardashian Facelift."

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... the Kardashians sicced their attorney on Dr. Gary Eldridge, demanding he quit using their name to promote his product, or else. 

TMZ broke story ... the Australian doc had filed docs to trademark the fibrin protein treatment in the U.S. He even claimed it was named after his family dog, and NOT Kris Jenner's krew.

But the letter to Dr. Eldridge informs him the family already holds countless trademarks on its name for beauty, cosmetics and all sorts of advertising, upon which he is infringing.

In plain English: Beat it, doc ... we're working this corner!

The doc got the message. He's already dropped his trademark application and removed "Kardashian" from his website. His patients now have to get a plain old "Fibrin Facelift."

D'Angelo Russell I Ain't Mad Over Adam Sandler Parody ... 'It's His Job'

5/27/2016 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

D'Angelo Russell says he isn't taking all of the "bro code" jokes personally -- telling TMZ Sports he's giving Adam Sandler and David Spade a pass for mocking him because "it's their job."

Then he sped off in a sick Lamborghini. 

As for the video, Sandler and Spade spoofed the whole D'Angelo vs. Swaggy P incident in a YouTube video recently ... the latest in a tidal wave of comedians who clowned the NBA star. 

But Russell seems to be cool with the jokes ... at least for now. 

As for Young, Russell has said he's ready to be friends with the guy -- but the ball's ultimately in Nick's court.  

'Game Of Thrones' Star Don't Call A Tow Truck ... Call 'The Mountain'

5/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Here's Hafpor Julius Bjornsson -- better known as "The Mountain" from "Game of Thrones" -- pulling a 17-TON BIG RIG in Iceland like it was a Tonka Truck.

Yeah, High Sparrow's in trouble ... 

Hafpor was training in Iceland for the upcoming Arnold Strongman Classic when he decided weights weren't good enough ... he wanted something much MUCH heavier. 

He chose the truck ... and we're told the 6'9", 400 lb monster didn't just pull it once ... we're talkin' multiple laps!

Sources close to Hafpor also tell us everyone at TMZ Sports is frightened of him (they didn't but it's true).

Watch the video and you will be too.

Chris Cornell FBI Swoops In After Stalker Skips Court, Goes Missing

5/27/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-chris-cornell-TMZ-01Chris Cornell's stalker is on the loose and could show up at his doorstep at any minute ... this according to the FBI.  

The feds contacted Cornell Wednesday to let him know Jessica Robbins -- who was charged with stalking Cornell in 2014 -- is on the loose again. Robbins allegedly sent hundreds of online threats to Cornell and his family, and drove 7 hours in a failed attempt to get inside his home.

We're told Robbins removed her court-ordered GPS ankle monitor and bailed on a Tuesday appearance in NYC federal court.

The FBI obtained a bench warrant for her arrest the next day, and we're told U.S. Marshals and Florida authorities are working together to track her down.

The timing is problematic ... Cornell has 2 shows in Florida soon  -- both within driving distance from Tampa, Robbins' last known location.

Khloe Kardashian Files for Divorce ... Again

5/26/2016 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-khloe-doc-launch-02Khloe Kardashian has just gone to court a second time to end her marriage to Lamar Odom ... TMZ has learned.

Khloe, with the help of attorney Laura Wasser, filed for divorce Thursday, claiming -- as she did the first time -- irreconcilable differences. Our sources say there is a prenup and the 2 worked out a property settlement the first time around, so now it's just a waiting game. In California, a divorce cannot become final until 6 months after it's filed.

We're told the divorce is amicable ... Khloe and Lamar are on good terms and he was given a heads-up she was filing. In the docs, Khloe does say she wants to legally drop the Odom name and go back to her maiden handle.

TMZ broke the story ... Khloe filed for divorce the first time in December 2013, and the paperwork just sat in the courthouse as she tried to salvage her marriage. When Lamar OD'd at a Nevada brothel last October Khloe dismissed her divorce petition ... just weeks before the divorce was to become final.

She says it was never about getting back with Lamar ... she just didn't want to upset him while he was recovering. But the final straw came in March when Khloe saw pics on TMZ that Lamar was drinking again

Amber Heard BS Johnny Depp's Family Hated Me

5/26/2016 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmzAmber Heard was not hated by Johnny Depp's mom ... in fact, Amber showed compassion for the woman in her last months ... so claim sources connected to Amber.

The sources say Betty Sue Palmer was in and out of the hospital for months, and on many occasions Amber went to her bedside at the hospital when Johnny wasn't there. The sources say Amber managed the schedules of the nurses Johnny hired. 

Amber sources say Johnny was indeed absent from his mom's life during their marriage, but it wasn't Amber's doing. They say it was Johnny's choice not to see her.

The sources say Amber does not believe any members of Johnny's family hated her. As we reported, multiple sources told us Johnny's mom and siblings detested her ... even before she married Johnny.

Our Amber sources say she actually has pictures of her snuggling with Johnny's son, Jack.

0526_bieber_nicola_dinner_launch_2Justin Bieber's back in the dating game with an on-screen hottie ... or so it seems.

The Biebs and actress Nicola Peltz -- she starred on "Bates Motel" and 'Transformers' -- arrived for a dinner date at Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills Wednesday night. She looked casual in black, while Justin looked parched ... in a severe sunburn.

He's a freak for some sun.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin Divorce a Done Deal

5/26/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-gwyneth-paltrow-chris-martin-TMZ-01Gwyneth Paltrow has just filed legal docs, asking a judge to officially end her marriage to Chris Martin ... but we know the docs aren't what they seem.

Gwyneth has asked the judge to enter a default judgment, because Chris never responded to her divorce petition. On the surface it sounds like Chris isn't playing ball, but we know it's the exact opposite.

As we reported, the former couple's business manager has been working out a property settlement, and Chris never responded to the divorce petition because he and Gwyneth didn't want lots of stories written each time documents were filed.

We're told the property settlement is now complete, and they agreed long ago to joint custody of their kids.

So the judge will enter the default and the property settlement will almost certainly remain confidential.

Mission accomplished.

Ariana Grande Hot Guy from 'Into You' Music Video ... I'm No Big Sean!

5/26/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande fans can kill all the buzz her new music video, "Into You," is about Big Sean ... so says the smoking hot guy who played her love interest.

We got former "America's Next Top Model" star Don Benjamin at LAX Wednesday and asked him about all the comparisons fans have been making between Sean and him.

Many believe the video is about their breakup, especially since Ariana started dating her backup dancer, Ricky, after ending things with Sean.

Don has a different theory -- but keep in mind, Don still seems a little hypnotized by making out with Ariana in the video. Not that we blame him.
