Kim and Kanye We're Not Selling Baby Pics ... It's Just Immoral

1/17/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been offered multi-million dollar deals to provide first photos of their new baby ... and they have REJECTED all of them.

Sources familiar with the offers tell TMZ, various websites and magazines started making offers months ago. All of the offers were north of a million dollars and several outlets offered between $2 and $5 million.

The offers were never entertained ... they were immediately rejected. We're told Kim and Kanye would never consider taking money for the first photos of the baby ... doing so would violate their morals.

But there's more ... Kim and Kanye place the security and safety of their family above all else. They realize the media will eventually get pictures of the baby but they want to do it on their own timetable ... when they're comfortable the safety of the baby is secured. 

As for what they've done in the past ... Kim and Kanye posted the first pic of North 2 months after she was born. As for Saint, they also waited 2 months.

So check Kim's Instagram in March.

'OITNB' Star Lea DeLaria F*** Casey Affleck 'I Care About the Woman That He Raped ... Allegedly'

1/17/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Affleck is a dirty scumbag who should be banned from attending the Academy Awards because he's a predator ... so says "Orange Is the New Black" star Lea DeLaria.

We got Lea at LAX Tuesday and asked her if Casey -- who last year won an Oscar for Best Actor in "Manchester by the Sea" -- should be a presenter this year given his sexual misconduct history and the #MeToo movement in full effect.

Casey, of course, was sued by 2 women in 2010 for sexual harassment and the cases were settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. And with that in mind ... Lea says Casey shouldn't show his face. It's crystal clear she's sick to her stomach wondering about men like Casey.

Daniel Cormier If I Don't Win At UFC 220 ... Worse Than Losing To Jon Jones

1/17/2018 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

What's worse than being brutally KO'd by a juiced-up Jon Jones??

For Daniel Cormier, you'd assume the answer would be "nothing" ... but the UFC light heavyweight champ told us dropping his fight at UFC 220 this weekend could be even more painful.

"As bad as July was, it can actually be worse if it happens again," Cormier told TMZ Sports.

"My motivation is not only competition, but to avoid feeling like I felt in July, and putting ... everybody that's close to me through the disappointment that we felt."

Daniel told us how he plans on getting the job done ... and says once he's finished with #1 contender Volkan Oezdemir, there will absolutely be a 3rd fight between him and Jones.

FYI, Jon's still waiting to find out how long he'll be sidelined.

Fingers crossed ... 

Hard Candy Makeup Polishing Up for #MeToo Movement

1/17/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The #MeToo movement is about to be way more in fashion ... if Hard Candy Cosmetics gets its way.

The cosmetics giant has applied to trademark #MeToo for fragrances and makeup ... which we're guessing means you'll see the hashtag on lipsticks, nail polishes, mascaras and whatnot. 

We know what you're thinking, but CEO Jerome Falic tells us this isn't a straight cash grab. He says the company's intention is to give back to women worldwide. He wasn't more specific than that -- but an industry source tells us the plan is to donate proceeds to the #MeToo cause. 

Falic says they're still in planning stages, so it's unclear which products will get the hashtag treatment if the trademark's approved.

EXCLUSIVE

Naya Rivera's off the hook for allegedly attacking her husband ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Kanawha County Magistrate Court's office in West Virginia ... Rivera's domestic battery charge was dismissed Friday, January 12. 

Prosecutors tell us the case was dropped because her estranged husband, Ryan Dorsey, does not want to go forward with pressing charges.

As we reported ... Naya was arrested Thanksgiving weekend in Chesapeake, WV after Dorsey called cops to report her for hitting him. Law enforcement told us the couple was arguing over their child.

She filed for divorce from Dorsey a little more than a week after the incident.

PETA Rips Horse-Punching Fan ... Ban Him From Eagles Games!!

1/16/2018 1:24 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The drunk Philadelphia Eagles fan who allegedly attacked a police officer AND his horse should be BANNED from owning pets AND attending Eagles games ever again ... this according to a huge animal rights org.

Cops reported the fan, Taylor Hendricks, repeatedly attacked an officer and his horse as he was being escorted out of Saturday's game against the Falcons. Hendricks was arrested for aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police horse, simple assault and defiant trespass.

But Stephanie Bell, senior director for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, tells TMZ Sports Hendricks should get more than that.

"PETA is asking the prosecutor to charge the suspect with cruelty to animals, and if he's convicted, we hope sentencing will include a psychiatric evaluation and a ban on owning or harboring any animals, from horses to dogs and cats."

"Anyone who would violently attack an animal likely has rage issues and could be a danger to the community at large."

And they didn't stop there ... Bell calls for Hendricks to be forever banned from Eagles games to "send a strong message that such abuse will not be tolerated."

Ashleigh Banfield I Feared Losing My Job Over Calling Out Aziz's Accuser

1/16/2018 1:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ashleigh Banfield's got people on her side, and she's doubling down against Aziz Ansari's accuser ... saying she believes the woman experienced "bad sex" -- not sexual misconduct -- and needed to put on her "big girl pants."

The HLN anchor tells "TMZ Live" ... she was trembling before going on the air to take a stance for what she felt was right, because she's received major professional blowback for speaking her mind in the past. 

Fortunately for Ashleigh, she says she's received "almost universal support" in this instance -- including from her employer -- for calling out the anonymous accuser.

As we reported ... Banfield said the accuser's claims were "appalling" and sullied the #MeToo movement. Ashleigh tells us the accuser endangered the progress women have made by blowing a bad date story out of proportion ... so she had to speak out against it.

Kim Kardashian Front and Center in Delivery Room For Birth of Daughter

1/16/2018 10:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian was in the hospital delivery room when her surrogate gave birth ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the birth tell us, Kim was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. when the surrogate was in labor and, when the baby was born, she was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby. We're told it was the family's trusted Dr. Paul Crane, who delivered the baby.

We're told Kanye was in the delivery room, but behind a curtain. He came out after the baby was born and held his daughter for the first time.

Kris Jenner and Kim's sisters were also at the hospital, but they were not in the delivery room.

We're told the surrogate was able to have some contact with the baby after the delivery, but was almost immediately under the care of Kim and Kanye.

The baby was born without complications. She weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz. Still no word on the baby's name.

TMZ was first to post the story after Kim announced on her app that the surrogate gave birth at 12:47 AM Monday.

Danielle Bregoli Disses 'Old Hoe' Iggy Azalea ... In 'Hi Bich' Remix

1/16/2018 1:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is saying "Hi Bich" to Iggy Azalea -- calling her an "old hoe" that's "washed."

The "Cash Me Outside" girl slams Iggy in a remix of her hit song, now featuring YBN Nahmir, Rich the Kid and Asian Doll -- a snippet of which has been obtained by TMZ.

In one of Danielle's verses, she goes in on Iggy by saying ... "Bitch don't compare me to Iggy // That old hoe is washed, And I'm lit // Wouldn't pay her to wash up my whip." 

It sounds like Bhad Bhabie -- Danielle's rap persona -- has been likened to the Aussie MC ... and BB doesn't like it. The only similarity, really, is that they're both white female rappers.

Your move, Iggy.

EXCLUSIVE

Dennis Rodman wasn't exactly going incognito before his DUI arrest -- with cops saying he was driving like a maniac and blaring music from his car before being pulled over. 

TMZ Sports obtained the police report from the Jan. 13 incident -- in which the Newport PD says Rodman was swerving all over the road around 10:50 PM. 

Once pulled over, cops say Rodman reeked of booze -- so he was arrested for DUI

According to the arrest report, Rodman is listed at 6'8" and 235 lbs (up from his listed playing weight of 228). He lists his occupation as "self-employed."

As we previously reported, Rodman was on probation at the time of his arrest and will likely be thrown in jail as a result. 

Buzz Aldrin to Delta I Need You Like the Man on the Moon

EXCLUSIVE

Buzz Aldrin went ballistic on Delta Airlines after missing his flight.

We got the second man to step foot on the moon Tuesday at LAX, and Buzz was furious that the plane had pulled away from the gate. He blamed it on a Delta employee, but the agents were unmoved.

The Delta employees offered Buzz the next flight, which got him so angry he rose from his wheelchair in a rage.

We don't know if the agents were aware they were messin' with an astronaut, but he was one step short of pulling a Jackie Gleason ... To the Moon, Alice.

Zooey Deschanel I'm Too Busy to Horse Around in Court

1/16/2018 9:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Zooey Deschanel says she's way too busy making TV shows to do something as frivolous as showing up for a court date. 

Zooey was sued over a horse. The equine owner claims Zooey leased the animal from her back in 2013 and overworked it, causing it to become lame. The owner wants vet bills and other damages.

The case has lingered in the court system for a while, but now it's time for a mandatory settlement conference ... which means the judge is trying to get both sides to reach an agreement to avoid trial.

Zooey just filed legal docs saying she just can't fit the appearance into her schedule, her lawyer saying, "Ms. Deschanel is a well-known actress with an extremely extensive and complicated work schedule."

As they say ... tell it to the judge. She did, and the judge said Zooey has to appear ... or else.
