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.

Bodhi Jenner was born Thursday weighing 9 lbs 4 oz. It's Burt and his GF Valerie Pitalo's first kid.

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.

Justin Bieber gave his baby brother a taste of baller's paradise ... docking his yacht for lunch.

The Biebs and his 6-year-old bro, Jaxon, hit up Seaspice in Miami Tuesday for some grub ... pear and Gorgonzola ravioli, short ribs and mojitos ... Jaxon's was virgin.

The tab topped $300 ... and the Biebs made the waiter's day with a $200 tip.

See ... Justin is a role model.


Pablo Escobar's Brother Threatens Netflix Over 'Narcos'

7/6/2016 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

070516-launch-narcos-netflix-tmz-02Pablo Escobar's brother just put Netflix on alert  -- cut us in on "Narcos" ... or else.

Roberto Escobar -- the accountant in Pablo's empire -- fired off a letter to Netflix in which he demands the media company put the brakes on season 2, unless the company gets a sign off from him.

He claims season 1 was riddled with inaccuracies and lies and says his brother would not like the portrayal one bit.

Roberto calls his letter -- obtained by TMZ -- "a friendly request for cooperation." He wants a cut of the profits.

The letter itself is interesting for several reasons. Our sources say it was written by Roberto at an undisclosed location in Colombia. And it's stamped with the Escobar family seal.


Roberto claims undying loyalty to Pablo, saying, "I was Pablo's closest ally, managing his accounting and he is my brother for life."

7/5/2016 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0705_teresa_giudice_family_beach_launchTeresa Giudice celebrated Fourth of July with her kids ... without Joe.

The 'Real Housewives' star and the kiddos spent the holiday at the Jersey Shore. Check out the photos ... Teresa's the pic of happy on the sand.

We're guessing Joe's 4th was more austere ... in a 6 x 8. He's 4 months into a 41-month prison stint.

Interesting fashion choices by Teresa.


Paris Jackson Reconnects with Debbie Rowe In Wake of Breast Cancer

7/5/2016 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0705-paris-jackson-debbie-rowe-getty-instagram-01Paris Jackson apparently saw our story Monday -- that she's cut off all contact with her mom, Debbie Rowe, who's now battling breast cancer -- because we've learned Paris just contacted Debbie and proclaimed her love ... this according to Jackson family sources.

As we reported, Paris broke off contact with Debbie more than a year ago. We're told Paris' family was upset MJ's daughter had reconnected with Debbie after the singer's death and became close. On top of that, when Paris began acting out Debbie became the disciplinarian ... something Paris didn't like.

Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer recently and will undergo surgery. We're told Paris texted Debbie, "I love you," and it appears the 2 will meet up after the surgery.

Hopefully, a happy ending.

7/5/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0630-david-zucker-danielle-zucker-tmz-getty-01"Airplane!" and 'The Naked Gun' writer/director David Zucker filed for divorce from his wife Danielle ... but he says all is still fine and dandy between the two. 

David submitted the docs earlier this week but he tells us it was a long time coming ... the couple has been separated for nearly 10 years. That's not all ... David says he and Danielle live just a few houses away from each other and routinely have family meals with their two kids. 

As for why they've finally decided to call it quits -- David says they both knew it was time to officially move on -- but they'll still keep a friendly relationship.

According to the divorce docs, David's asking for physical custody of their teenagers -- a boy and a girl -- but surely wants to share legal custody with Danielle. 

And yes, we'll stop calling you Shirley.

NFL Legend Eric Dickerson My Future Son-In-Law Is No Rapist

6/30/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0627_Eric-Dickerson-Freddie-Gibbs_gettyEric Dickerson says there's NO WAY Freddie Gibbs -- the rap star engaged to his daughter -- is guilty of raping a woman in Austria ... telling TMZ Sports he "supports Freddie 100%."

Gibbs was arrested earlier this month -- after two women reportedly claimed the rapper and his security agent drugged them after a 2015 show in Austria and raped them at Gibbs' hotel. 

For his part, Gibbs has adamantly denied any wrongdoing and has vowed to fight the charges. 

FYI, Freddie is a big name in rap -- having formerly been signed to Young Jeezy's CTE World record label, and been featured on songs with the likes of Gucci Mane, Action Bronson and E-40.

Gibbs popped the question to Dickerson's daughter, Erica, last March ... so we contacted ED to ask how his family is handling the situation.

"I don’t know too much about the specifics of the situation," Dickerson told TMZ Sports ... "but I do know Freddie and I know his character ... I believe him."

"I talked to Erica (his daughter) and she said that she knows Freddie and knows that he would never be capable of doing something like that."

Dickerson says he's also been in contact with Freddie -- and offered up some advice on how to handle the situation. 

"When I talked to Freddie, I told him the main focus is to stay positive. He told me 'I will fight this the whole way. I don’t want to go through this without clearing my name 100%.'"

Gibbs has been released on bail -- and his lawyer says he has NOT been formally charged with any crime. 

Louis Tomlinson Baby Mama Keeping Me from My Son I Want Joint Custody

6/29/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062916-louis-tomlinson-Louis Tomlinson has had it with his baby mama denying him access to his child, so he's now going to court to seek joint custody ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us Briana Jungwirth has been "inconsistent" in giving Louis access to 5-month-old Freddie Reign ... especially recently.

Louis wants to be a real father and present in Freddie's life, so he's going to court not just seeking joint physical and legal custody, but a 50/50 split in terms of the division of time each spends with their son.

The One Direction singer, we're told, is paying Briana around $15k a month in child support, and a judge will now set whatever amount is deemed appropriate. Louis is also renting a $1 million house for Briana and the kid in Calabasas.

Sources close to the couple tell us ... Jasmine is nearing the end of her first trimester. No word on whether it's a boy or a girl.

They'll document the pregnancy on the show, and we're told cameras will also be rolling for the birth.

Jasmine's the fourth 'L.A.' cast member to get pregnant.



Kylie Jenner, Blac Chyna, Kim K We're All One Big Happy Family

6/28/2016 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They were once mortal enemies ... and now Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna are joined at the hip, singing "I Don't F*** With You" at a Kardashian shindig.

Kylie, Chyna and Kim formed the girl group for Khloe's 32nd birthday party in Hollywood Monday night at Dave & Buster's.

As you know, Kylie's boyfriend, Tyga, is Chyna's baby daddy and the friction has been palpable, but apparently not any more.

Just as significant ... Kris Jenner was there, which means -- with Rob and Chyna's new show -- it's money making time.

Greenbacks are more potent than blood.


Calvin Harris Taylor Meeting Tom's Mom Is a Joke ... Just Ask MY Mom

6/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0627-calvin-harris-tom-hiddleston-taylor-swift-TMZ-GETTY-01Calvin Harris thinks it's "f****** laughable" that Taylor Swift has already met Tom Hiddleston's mother ... considering she NEVER met Calvin's parents during their 15-month relationship.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Calvin wanted Taylor to meet his parents, who live in the U.K., but Taylor always told him it was too far away.

We're told Calvin was understandably "bewildered and astonished" when he heard about TayTom's visit to meet his mother, Diana ... in the freakin' U.K.!! Remember, Hiddleston's only been in the picture for a few weeks at this point.


What's the rush? One source says Calvin thinks Taylor's cozying up to Tom to lock down a Bond girl role ... IF he becomes the new James Bond, as rumored.

If it sounds like sour grapes, it's not -- we're told it's more comical to Calvin, who also feels like he dodged a bullet.
