12/17/2015 1:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's one place Metta World Peace isn't Metta World Peace ... his own home. 

We spoke with Ron Artest III -- who tells us behind closed doors, the Lakers star is simply Ron, just like his mother named him. 

By the way, RA3 is a prep basketball superstar who's being recruited by colleges all over the country ... and oh yeah, THE KID CAN DUNK!!!

NBA's J.R. Smith Super Santa Son ... Bought Mom A House For XMAS!!!

12/17/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

J.R. Smith totally out-Santa'd St. Nick in the gift giving dept ... at least according to his mom who says the Cavs forward spoils her every Xmas with expensive bags, fancy cars ... and even a freakin' HOUSE.

We ran into Ida Smith -- who was in NYC working with the J.R. Smith Family Assist Foundation -- and being that it's the yuletide season we had to ask ... what's the best gift her super rich son left under the tree?

When we say super rich we mean it ... J.R.'s made over $40 million during his NBA career so he's definitely got the paper to make the holidays special.

Check out the clip ... Ida says Smith never disappoints, with her past holiday haul including a Louie bag, a brand new BMW, and on one faithful Christmas eve 10 years ago ... A BRAND NEW HOUSE.

Kids ... they're better when they can dunk.

1216-kim-kardashian-candy-cane-lane-instagramKris Jenner did a little light decorating for the holiday season ... evidenced by this photo posted by Kim Kardashian, which she captioned, "Candy Cane Lane Kris Jenner Style."

Gigi, Bella Hadid Dad Claims Personal Pics Stolen By Family Guard

12/15/2015 4:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1215-mohamed-hadid-gigi-bella-TMZ-GETTY-02Gigi and Bella Hadid's dad says he was betrayed by an employee who stole precious pics of his daughters and private pics of Michael Jackson.

Mohamed Hadid claims in a new lawsuit ... Juan Carlos Gonzalez worked for him at his home and stole 2,200 photos. The pics include photographs of Gigi and Bella when they were minors, various private parties and family photos with the King of Pop.

We're told Gonzalez worked as the family's security guard.

Hadid says the photos were pilfered from his home office and he suspected Gonzalez and demanded them back, but he refused to return them.

The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, seeks to block Gonzalez from sharing the pics with anyone. Mohamed also wants money.

Exclusive Details

1214-derek-carr-wife-car-baby-dog-INSTAGRAM-01Derek Carr didn't run out of gas Sunday during his huge win over the Broncos -- his wife, not so much. 

While the Oakland Raiders QB was leading his team to victory in Denver, Heather Carr (who's pregnant) was driving home with their kid and dog in the car ... when they ran out of gas on a freeway off-ramp. 

The Dublin PD tells TMZ Sports ... an officer in the area noticed Carr's car on the side of the road and stopped to check out the situation -- and ultimately got her enough gas to get her to a gas station. 

We're told the officer tracked down a gas can and had it filled -- then brought it back to Heather ... and by the way, the officer had no idea the woman was the wife of an NFL quarterback. 

"In this day and age, we do a lot more than catch the bad guy," a spokesperson for the PD tells us. 

Heather posted about the situation -- saying, "Nothing like being almost home and running out of gas on the off ramp with your whole crew! Thanks #DublinPolice for saving the day! #thoughtwecouldmakeit #said30milestillempty #LeastWeGotThatWinToday"

Kim & Kanye No More Babies ... It's Just Too Dangerous

12/14/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1213-kim-kanye-tmz-getty-01Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's new bundle of joy will be their last ... doctors have warned her another pregnancy would be like playing with fire.

Kim's been open about her pregnancy struggles, suffering from placenta accreta -- a potentially life threatening condition -- during both. We're told docs have told her it's nearly a guarantee she'd get accreta again, putting her and her baby's lives at risk.

A source close to the family tells us Kim is also scared of another extremely painful birth, like the one with Saint ... and that's helped her make the decision easier. 

However, we're told the couple is completely cool with capping off their brood at two kids. Our source says they're plenty busy with North and Saint and a new addition would be just too much.

As for Saint West -- we're told he's the perfect baby -- eating great, sleeping a ton and barely crying.

But what would you expect from the offspring of two of Hollywood's finest?


Kris Jenner Makes Legal Move To Prove She's The Proudest Mom

12/11/2015 8:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1210-kris-jenner-TMZ-01Kris Jenner wants you to know she's a proud mama ... and now she wants to put her matriarchal pride to work ... to make some money.

We found out Kris filed to get a trademark for #ProudMama ... she says it's for "advertising purposes."

Kris has already been tagging #ProudMama on various business ventures and on social media.

This isn't the first time Kris has fought to get legal ownership of mom phrases. Back in March, she filed to trademark the word "momager."

If the trademark is approved, any and all moms will have to get Kris' permission if they want to advertise with the phrase #ProudMama ... or Kris can sue them.

... and you thought YOUR mom loved you.


Burn Victim All I Want for XMAS Is a Katy Perry Card

12/10/2015 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1210-girl-facebook-katy-perry-burned-christams-card-FACEBOOK-01The little girl who lost her family and who herself was horribly burned has one big Christmas wish -- an XMAS card from Katy Perry.

8-year-old Safyre Terry suffered the burns after the ex-boyfriend of her mom set their home on fire, killing her entire family. Safyre was severely burned and lost her right hand and left foot.

She's now living with her aunt, Liz Dolder, who tells us ... Safyre is a huge Katy fan and even sang "Roar" during her school talent show.  

Dolder says she's adorning their Christmas tree with cards sent from people around the world, but the prized card that would go at the top of the tree is reserved for Katy.

By the way, the family has received thousands of cards and gifts and lots of celebs, including Hulk Hogan and Yolanda Foster, have given marching orders to their followers to send cards. 

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel Baby Strolling at the Mall

12/9/2015 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1209-justin-timberlake-jessica-biel-wennSo, this is pretty un-BIEL-ievable ... Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel in full mommy and daddy mode at The Grove in L.A. 

Pretty rare for A-listers like these two to hit up a crowded mall, apparently without a huge security detail. Not to mention the fact it's a paparazzi hot spot too. JT was hardly blending in with the crowd as he pushed their 8-month-old son's stroller, while sporting polka dots.

Everyone's gotta get their holiday shopping done sometime, right?

Hint ... He made it out of clay. 

Tyrese Wins Lawsuit Over ... Book About Ailing Mother

12/7/2015 5:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Tyrese just won a huge case against the woman he blasted for taking advantage of his mother -- a verdict that will save him $83,000!

Cynthia Banks wrote a book about Tyrese's mother and her struggles with alcoholism. Tyrese didn't support the project and publicly shamed the author ... who then sued him in Texas for defamation. She initially won a judgement in the case because Tyrese never responded.

Tyrese fought that ruling by filing to have the judgment tossed, and he won it on Monday. He was going to have to pay Banks $83k ... but now he's off the hook. 

Tyrese went to Dallas for the verdict, but had to leave his mother's hospital bedside. We're told she's currently in critical condition ... and on a ventilator in an L.A. area hospital.

Kim and Kanye Our Baby's a Saint!!!

Breaking News


It's official ... Kim and Kanye had a Saint.

The baby boy's name is Saint West. It took 3 days after birth to seal the deal, but the verdict is in.

No word on a middle name.

The baby clocked in at 8 pounds 1 ounce.

It's a good thing they came up with the name ... Cedars-Sinai Medical Center would not release Kim until the boy's name appears on the birth record.


Kylie Jenner What Can I Say About Kim's Baby ... NOTHING

12/6/2015 6:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner did her best "Walking Dead" impression Saturday when a photog asked her how she felt about sister Kim's new baby.

It's hilarious and ridiculous. Kylie was stone faced as she walked into a Miami restaurant with Hailey Baldwin. Kylie, of course, is in town for Art Basel.  

If she won't, we'll say it ... Congrats Kim and Kanye!
