Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Family Suspicious

Houstons Will Sneak Pic of Body

8/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0202-bobbi-kristina-instagram-6Bobbi Kristina’s funeral will be yet another family face-off -- the Browns are on high alert and worried the Houstons will sneak a photo of her dead body ... and sell it.

Sources close to the Browns tell TMZ ... they fear a repeat of what happened when Whitney Houston was laid to rest in 2012 ... when a photo of her body, in her casket, was snapped and ended up on the cover of a magazine. 

Since the Brown family was persona non grata at the funeral ... they believe someone from the Houston side was behind it.

Our sources say the Brown family plans to band together and stand guard ... and their eyes will be trained on the Houston family.

Pat Houston is managing the funeral, so it has all the makings of turning real ugly, real fast.

Caring for Joe

Janet Jackson has put her life on hold to take care of her dad while he recovers from 3 heart attacks, and she's the only member of the brood who made the trek to Brazil.

We're told Janet arrived in Brazil Tuesday to tend to her father, cancelling rehearsals for her upcoming tour. We're told Janet limited the access to ICU, where Joe was hooked up for nearly a week.   

The good news ... Joe's now out of ICU and on the mend. He's eating solid foods and the goal is for him to regain enough strength so he can get on a plane and return to the U.S. for further treatment.

We're told La Toya and Jermaine were talking about flying over, but when Joe's condition improved they decided to wait until he came home.

If all goes well, Joe could return home as early as Monday.

Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Invitation Infuriates Brown Family Member

EXCLUSIVE

0731-bobbi-kristina-doc-launch-02

Bobbi Kristina will be laid to rest Saturday and her funeral already has the Browns and the Houstons fighting ... over money. 

TMZ's obtained the invite ... the guest list is tight and even if you're on the list you have to present a government-issued ID at the door.   

Now the conflict -- the invitation suggests, in lieu of flowers, donations should be sent to The Marion P. Foundation, a charity run by Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston, benefiting troubled teens. 

Leolah Brown, BK's other aunt, claims Pat's just lining her personal bank account and she's asking people not to send “ONE RED CENT!” to the charity. Leolah says Pat's "not the sweet quiet person that she's tried so hard to make people believe she was... ." And what's more -- she alleges the late Whitney Houston would agree.

Nick Gordon

Begs Bobby Brown

Let Me Mourn at Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Gordon
desperately wants to attend Bobbi Kristina's funeral Saturday ... so he sent Bobby Brown an email begging him for his blessing.

According to the email, which we've seen, Nick says, "I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye."

Nick realizes he's on the outs with the family as cops continue their homicide investigation with him in their crosshairs.   

Nick, who included Pat Houston in his email because she's arranging the funeral, goes on, "I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance."

And there's a dash of guilt laced in the email ... "Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."

Nick was persona non grata the entire time Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized, with most members of both families blaming Gordon for BK's death

The irony shouldn't be lost on Bobby Brown ... he was blamed by Whitney Houston's family for her death and even left her funeral early after a disagreement over seating.

Kourtney Kardashian

I Want Joint Custody

... For the Kids' Sake

7/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0724-scott-disick-kourtney-kardashian-TMZ-01Kourtney Kardashian has calmed down since her split from Scott Disick, and she's not only willing to share custody with Scott ... she wants it that way.

Kardashian sources tell us, Kourtney believes 5-year-old Mason, 3-year-old Penelope and 7-month-old Reign need to have a real, meaningful relationship with their dad. So she wants to hammer out a formal custody agreement which not only gives them joint custody ... each will spend a substantial amount of time with the kids.

Our Kardashian sources confirm Kourtney met with disso-queen Laura Wasser last Monday. It's significant because Wasser is known in divorce lawyer circles as an attorney who always pushes for joint custody.

As for money issues, we're told Scott has made no mention of wanting child support. We're told Scott is actually rolling in dough from various ventures, including TV shows, businesses and a significant inheritance.

Coco and Ice-T are about to get a heavy dose of reality, because TMZ has learned she's pregnant!

They've been jawboning about it for years ... he already has 2 kids and a 20-year-old grandson, but she wanted a kid. In the end, she got her way, after nearly 14 years of marriage.

No word on how far along she is or the gender, but if it's a girl and Coco's genes are dominant, then good luck Ice.

LeBron James

Chasin' Waterfalls

... On Family Vacay

7/23/2015 3:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James is not sticking to the rivers and lakes that he's used to -- instead he took the whole damn fam on vacation to Hawaii, and had a run-in with a waterfall that had him grinning from ear-to-ear. 

The whole James gang ... including mama Gloria and her rapper fiance' Lambo ...  are over in Kona, Hawaii, and so far the highlight of the trip is this tropical dip.

LBJ's got a lot to celebrate -- a bonafide Hollywood hit with "Trainwreck," and a lucrative new development deal with Warner Bros.

It's always good to the be king (except sometimes in the NBA Finals).

0723_scott_mason_outing_primary_launchScott Disick has begun the family healing process  ... spending Wednesday with his son. 

Disick took five-year-old Mason to Barnes & Noble in Calabasas, where the kid loaded up on toys.

Scott and Mason then went for an early dinner at Rosti Cafe. 

Although he's been out of the picture for the past month following his split with Kourtney, Disick kept in touch from a far ... mostly thanks to FaceTime.

But face-to-face time works much better.  

Kelly Rutherford

Loses Battle for Kids

Kelly Rutherford was just dealt what could be an unrecoverable blow in her battle to regain custody of her 2 children.

A judge just ruled the actress had no recourse to wage custody war in California. Her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, has an order from a judge in Monaco -- where he lives -- giving him custody of 8-year-old Hermes and 6-year-old Helena.  

The kids have been living with their dad in Monaco but Kelly won the right to get them for the summer. Today's ruling clears the way for Daniel to take them back.

Kelly has been fighting for 3 years, but it's mostly been a losing battle.
