Kylie Jenner & Tyga

Car Trouble

at Bev Hills Date Night

12/19/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

121914_kylie_tyga_launchKylie Jenner and her bf Tyga tried to make a quick exit during their first date night in front of the paparazzi -- but the valet ... and Tyga's fancy car had other plans.

Tylie (yeah, we said it) have been all over Instagram together, but have never been out together at a big L.A. hot spot ... until Thursday night.  

Kylie tried to bolt for the passenger door, while covering her face ... but unfortunately for her ... the valet could not figure out how to open the doors on Tyga's Lambo.

They do eventually make their getaway -- but you gotta see the keystone cops routine while they try to figure out how to get in their ride. 

Oh, and she's still 17 and he's still 25. Just for the record. 

Amanda Bynes

I Want to be a Trojan Shrink

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes USC
Amanda Bynes
has her sights set on USC and the psychology department ... but this time not as a patient.

Amanda took a VIP tour of the campus Wednesday and we're told she told the folks with whom she interacted she wanted to enroll in the school as a psych major.

It makes sense ... Amanda has had more than her share of interactions with shrinks over the last two years. A staffer from the admissions department told TMZ ... the school does not hold mental illness against any applicant ... if they're qualified and able to engage in studies, that's all that matters.

As for her tour ... several students saw her on the golf cart tooling around campus with headphones, singing "Roar" by Katy Perry

A USC staffer tells us the earliest she could be admitted is next Fall.

Nicki Minaj's Ex-BF

Becoming Suicidal Over Breakup

12/19/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1218-nicki-minaj-tmz-sbstunts-instagram-01The ex-boyfriend of Nicki Minaj is taking their break-up INCREDIBLY hard ... to the point he's having suicidal thoughts. 

Safaree Samuels is confiding in friends that he's an emotional wreck over his breakup with Nicki after a 12-year relationship. He's become a shut-in, spends days and nights smoking weed, and has talked openly about suicide.

Safaree is telling friends he won't get in touch with Nicki because she's now hooked up with Meek Mill. He says it's torture for him, because he believes Meek Mill destroyed his relationship with Nicki over false claims he cheated.

Safaree's friends say they're scared these are more than idle threats. They've urged him to see a shrink. The problem ... he's seeing one whom he says has been giving him meds that make him even more emotional.

We're told ... JB arrived with a dozen friends -- including Hailey Baldwin. We're told he dropped $2,700 ... the cost of burning rubber for 2 hours.

The staff gladly stuck around ...  Justin threw them an extra $500.

Go Biebs Racer ... Go!

Jon Huntsman, Jr.

Hey Sony,

You Owe America 'The Interview'

12/19/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jon Huntsman Jr Sony The Interview
Former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Hunstman, Jr. isn't scared of North Korea and doesn't think Sony should be either ... and he thinks Sony screwed up by shelving 'The Interview.'

Our D.C. photog felt Hunstman was the perfect person to ask, since he's North Korea adjacent, having served as U.S. Ambassador to both Singapore and China.

The former presidential hopeful had some friendly advice for Sony: Don't let anybody stand in the way of what you do best ... making movies.

Has he seen 'White House Down?'

Beyonce, Jay Z

Lose Bidding War for Epic L.A. House

12/18/2014 3:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1218_beyonce_jay_z_beverly_hills_home_launchA 35-year-old Swedish video game programmer just got the prized house that Jay Z and Beyonce also wanted ... TMZ has learned.

Our real estate sources tell us ... Markus Persson plunked down $70 million cash for a 23,000 square foot palace in Bev Hills.

Markus can afford it ... he sold his company, Mojang -- which created the video game Minecraft -- to Microsoft for $2.5 BILLION.

As we reported, Beyonce and Jay Z visited the house multiple times and made an offer but Markus beat them out at 70.  

The other winners ... realtors Branden Williams and Ben Bacal who get a big fat commission check.

CM Punk

Laughs Off Green Ranger Challenge

For UFC Debut

12/18/2014 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

CM Punk UFC Fight Green Ranger CM Punk could choose ANY opponent for his UFC debut ... but it almost certainly won't be the Green Power Ranger -- not based on CM's reaction to the guy's name, anyway.

The former WWE champ was in NYC Thursday when he told our photog how training is going for his first bout in the Octagon. His new UFC contract was announced earlier this month.

CM wouldn't name names yet as far as his first opponent -- looks like he's enjoying the speculation. But you gotta see his reaction when we bring up Jason David Frank -- a former Power Ranger who's been calling out Punk. He's clearly not impressed.

Go go ... go to sleep.

Seth Rogen

Returns to Work at Sony ...

With Hard Feelings

12/18/2014 1:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1218-seth-rogen-sony-NPG-01
Seth Rogen
is back in the saddle, showing up at Sony Thursday morning, but we're told he feels betrayed by the studio's decision to shelve "The Interview."

If you believe Rob Lowe ... Seth was fuming over Sony's decision Wednesday. Rob -- who was also in the movie --  said he and Seth were in lockstep and that Sony showed cowardice by crumbling.

Sources connected to Seth tell TMZ ... Rob did indeed chitchat with Seth at JFK about the Sony decision, and it wasn't hard to read between the lines that Seth is pissed.

It makes sense ... during the premiere in Hollywood last week ... Seth praised Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal for having the balls to stand up to the hackers.

The Sony lot probably seems smaller today.

EXCLUSIVE

French Montana Tyga Scott Disick Partying TogetherFrench Montana, Tyga and Scott Disick found some common bonding ground ... at a lingerie party in Hollywood.

The boys were there alongside Chris Brown, Snoop, Sean Kingston and Matt Barnes. VH1 "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Sincere Show served as hostess for the Facet Studio Black Tie Lingerie Party ... which required men to dress up and the ladies to dress ... with not much at all.

Scott's presence was a little surprising ... he just became a third-time dad this week. 

But hey, who could turn down this invite?

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Everybody Was Peeing

... So I Peed Too!

12/18/2014 11:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1218-floyd-mayweather-tmz-01Floyd Mayweather Jr. only made his run to the restroom after other people in his crew did ... and Floyd believes he only got singled out because he is Floyd Mayweather Jr. 

As TMZ first reported, Floyd got into it with a woman -- to the point where she called police -- after she tried to stop him from using a restroom Wednesday night at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City. The woman claimed Floyd called her a bitch, but ultimately police did nothing.

According to our sources, Floyd didn't think it was a big deal when he used the restroom ... because he wasn't the first one to use it -- other people went in before him.

We're told Floyd believes the woman only gave him a hard time because he's famous ... and if anyone had a terrible attitude during their exchange ... it was her.

Our sources say Floyd was shocked that the woman called the cops over the whole thing, especially considering he walked out with about 10 bags worth of stuff.

Apparently none of those bags contained his bathroom pass.

Sony

Cancels Studio Tour

Until Further Notice

12/18/2014 10:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sony Cancels TourSony is telling people who signed up for their studio tour to take a walk ... anywhere but on the Sony lot.

Sources at the studio tell TMZ ... their tour has been put on ice since the hacker attack ... and a big reason is that its 2 hour walking could pose a big threat to Sony. The tour is touted as a behind the scenes look at a working studio. The idea of someone straying from the group is too real a possibility.

We're told the tour will not resume until sometime after the first of the year, but no date has been set.

Kris and Bruce Jenner

Divorce Final

12/18/2014 9:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1218-kris-jenner-bruce-jenner-tmz-01
Kris and Bruce Jenner have settled their divorced ... TMZ has learned, and the goodies have been divided, with Bruce scoring several million from his ex.

A L.A. County judge has signed the legal docs.
  
It's about as clean a divorce as possible. As we previously reported, they did not sign a prenup. Kris gets the family house and they divided up various bank accounts and other assets.

We're told based on the settlement agreement ... neither Kris nor Bruce will get spousal support. As for 17-year-old Kylie, she's so close to becoming an adult they share joint custody and each parent will foot the bill while she's with them.

Under the agreement, Kris has to pay Bruce $2.5 million to equalize things.

Kris gets a 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost, a 2014 Bentley and a 2014 Land Rover. Bruce gets a 2011 Porsche 997 Coupe, a 2013 Cadillac Escalade and a 2007 Harley motorcycle.

Kris filed for divorce in September, citing irreconcilable differences. She listed the date of separation as June 1, 2013.

They each get to keep their airline miles.

It looks like the actual date they are legally allowed to tie the knot with someone else is March 23, 2015 ... but the fat lady has sung.

They're on the market folks.
