Kanye West was faced with a big challenge -- walk through an airport with photogs and fans hounding him and Kim Kardashian without losing his temper ... and he passed with flying colors.
Kim and Kanye were walking with baby North through the airport in Melbourne over the weekend ... and security did nothing to stop a slew of fans from walking up to them and snapping pics.
Not only did Kanye not snap ... he even smiled a few times! What is going on here?!?!?
Kanye pled no contest in March for beating up a photographer at LAX back in July 2013. He got 24 months informal probation as part of the plea deal ... so flipping at an airport again would probably land him some jail time.
Still ... it's amazing to see him so restrained.
Teen Singer Jadagrace
I've Got A Record Deal
To Go With My TV Show
9/8/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Teen singer/actress Jadagrace can't even drive yet ... but she's already making bank after signing a lucrative new recording contract -- well, lucrative by most 15-year-olds' standards.
Jadagrace has inked a deal with West Gate record company to make up to 5 albums. According to the contract -- obtained by TMZ -- she'll collect a hefty advance of up to $60K for each one -- not a fortune in the music biz ... but it beats workin' a fast food drive-thru.
Not that money's an issue, anyway ... she's already starring in her own TV show, "The Jadagrace Show."
Accused of Stealing 'Virtual Closet' App
9/7/2014 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan has been accused of stealing before ... but never digitally -- which is exactly what one web developer says LiLo and her brother Michael Jr. have done.
Lindsay and MiLo allegedly struck a deal with a tech entrepreneur named Fima Potik to work on his startup called Spotted Friend ... according to the NY Post.
The app allows users to see what clothes celebrities have in their closet ... then gives the person a chance to buy the threads -- and the celebs get a cut of the profits
LiLo tweeted about Spotted Friend in July 2013 ... but for some reason, the group parted ways -- and last month the Lohans started raising money for a similar app.
Now MiLo Jr, Lindsay and their new business partner have reportedly been slapped with a cease and desist ... threatening swift legal action if she doesn't stop.
Lilo's lawyer fired back, "Allegations of any impropriety in Lindsay Lohan’s business relationship concerning this Web site are inaccurate and clearly designed to capitalize on her worldwide recognition as a fashion icon.
Future and Ciara
For Good Of Their Baby
9/3/2014 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Future and Ciara didn't stay apart for long ... and it's all because Ciara feels strongly about her son needing his father around 24/7.
Sources close to Future tell TMZ ... he and Ciara are living together again -- and trying to make things work between them -- so Future can help take care of their 4-month-old son, Future Zahir.
Ciara must be willing to overlook the past ... since she was the one who claimed Future cheated on her while he was on tour -- and then broke off their engagement last month.
We're told Ciara wasn't interested in a shared parenting situation ... saying she believes Future's a good father and that it's best for their son if his dad's there.
Pretty selfless of her, if she really believes he cheated.
Didn't Go to His Bro's Wedding ...
But He Sent an Instagram!
8/31/2014 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nothing says you love your brother and approve of his marriage like sending him a 15-second video on Instagram congratulating him on his wedding ... instead of, ya know ... actually going to the wedding.
As TMZ first reported, Mark Wahlberg did not go to his brother Donnie's wedding to Jenny McCarthy because -- like many people -- he and his wife have issues with some comments Jenny's made.
Instead, Mark was at his 11-year-old daughter's birthday party and wished the couple well from 3,000 miles away.
But you know he sent an AWESOME gift.

Though he's reportedly dating Jennifer Lawrence and she's reportedly dating "Glee" producer Brad Falchuk ... formerly coupled duo Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow were spotted together Saturday.
The two were seen headed to breakfast in the Hamptons with their two children, Apples and Moses.

Skipping Donnie & Jenny's Wedding
8/30/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If you're looking for Mark Wahlberg this weekend, don't go to Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy's wedding -- TMZ has learned he won't be there, and we're told it's because he and his wife aren't fans of the bride.
According to multiple Wahlberg sources, Mark is not as close with Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem. Or at least, not with Jenny. We're told Mark's wife Rhea did not like a recent interview Jenny gave with Howard Stern where she talked about her relationship with Mark.
We're told brother Bobby won't be at the wedding either ... and ditto for mama W, but that's because she doesn't fly.
We contacted Mark, and one of his reps told us he wasn't attending because he needs to be at a birthday party for his daughter Ella today in L.A. Her 11th b-day is actually Tuesday, but Mark will be filming that day in Boston.
Our sources say there's absolutely bad blood with Jenny.
For what it's worth ... brother Paul will be in attendance. More cake for him.
From Contacting Her
8/30/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Britney Spears' ex-boyfriend David Lucado is desperate to have at least one last convo with her -- but Brit's entire team, led by big daddy Jamie Spears, is blocking him from contacting her ... TMZ has learned.
David is telling friends he and Britney were not "100% together" a few weeks ago when he was videotaped dancing and making out with a girl -- and he wants to explain himself, but he's running into a brick wall in the form of Team Brit.
Britney's camp tells us David won't be getting through because he's persona non grata at her show in Las Vegas, at her home in Thousand Oaks, CA ... and his phone number's been blocked.
We're told David never heard about the break up directly from Britney ... and he wants to have that talk, just in case he still has a slim shot. Our Spears sources say that's exactly why he's getting shut out.
I Want to Celebrate with Angelina, But ...
8/29/2014 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jon Voight says he's delighted Brad Pitt finally made an honest woman of his daughter Angelina Jolie ... even though they didn't invite him to the wedding.
The father of the bride was leaving breakfast in L.A. when he told a photog he's anxious to catch up with the newlyweds and celebrate their wedding.
JV doesn't seem the least bit bitter about not getting an invitation -- but things did get a little awkward when the photog asked when he'd be raising a glass to Brad and Angie.
Watch, ya gotta feel for Jon a little.
Dad Secretly Purchased 'Cheating' BF Video
8/29/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The incriminating video showing Britney Spears' now ex-boyfriend cheating on her is now owned by none other than Britney's dad ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... a video has surfaced of David Lucado dancing with and kissing a woman a couple of weeks ago. A rep for Jamie Spears tells TMZ ... when Jamie got wind of the video he contacted the agency that was selling it and swiftly coughed up a SUBSTANTIAL amount of money to secure it.
We're told Jamie -- who has been Britney's conservator for over 6 years -- then called Britney and told her he had something to show her ... and it was important. When Brit saw the evidence that was all she needed ... she immediately declared the relationship over.
Jamie's rep tells us he took the action to protect his daughter from David and from the embarrassment of the video going public.
Jamie's rep says the video is under lock and key and will never be seen again.
The wild card -- we don't know if the "other woman" who secretly shot the video made other copies, but Jamie's rep tells TMZ in no uncertain terms ... if anybody posts or publishes the video he will sue them for copyright infringement.
Britney posted an Instagram video Thursday night ... saying she was having a "really, really sh***y" day."
50 CENT SHOULD FIGHT MY SON
That Would End the Feud
8/29/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Floyd Mayweather Sr. is sick and tired of 50 Cent cracking jokes at his son's expense -- and says the real laughs would come if the two ever fought ... because Floyd would kick 50's WHOLE ASS!
Daddy Mayweather made the comments during an interview with Brian Shapiro from "The Vegas Take" on Fox Sports 670 Las Vegas -- and explained why he thinks 50 has declared war on Floyd.
"50 Cent seems like he's got a problem since Floyd left him. He's a world known singer and he's acting like a kid."
Money Sr. says the real hilarity would ensue if Floyd and 50 ever got in the ring ... promising that the 147 lb. Mayweather would punish the two-hundred-and-something pound rap star.
"He weighs over 100 pounds more than Floyd. Let him go up against Floyd ... put that on video. Floyd would stop all that. Wouldn't be no more said."
There were rumors that Floyd recently challenged 50 to a 12 round fight -- but that later turned out to be a hoax.
Too bad ... would be GREAT to watch.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
8/28/2014 5:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally made it official ... they got married!
In typical Brangelina fashion, it happened very under the radar. In fact ... they did the deed last weekend in France, according to a spokesman for the couple.
They were married in a small private ceremony at Chateau Miraval, which they own. Jolie was walked down the aisle by her oldest sons Pax and Maddox, while Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
Pitt apparently went right back to work after the wedding ... he was seen on Thursday promoting his next movie and wearing a new ring on his ring finger.
The two had said they wouldn't get married until "everyone else in the country" had the right to get married. Guess they jumped the gun a little ...
