Prince Jackson

Grandma & Grandpa

Reunite for Graduation Party

6/1/2015 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_prince_jackson_graduation_party_launchJoe and Katherine Jackson don't get together often, but they put aside their differences to celebrate Michael Jackson's firstborn graduating from high school. 

According to our sources, the family shindig for Prince Jackson went down Saturday afternoon at Joe's house in Encino. We're told it was a small gathering -- about 35 people or so -- with Prince's aunts, uncles and cousins making up most of the crowd.  

The party was catered, but just typical party food ... nothing too fancy ... especially considering how filthy rich the guest of honor is. Uncle Jackie and Grandpa Joe made speeches, along with Prince. 

Prince graduated Saturday from the exclusive Buckley School -- and says he's going to LMU School of Film and Television ... following in the footsteps of other celeb kids Colin Hanks and Scott Eastwood

Bonus fun facts: Carson Daly AND Gilligan (Bob Denver) went to LMU too!

Kim Kardashian

Doin' the Bump

... Somebody's Showing

6/1/2015 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian's 3 months of pregnancy is starting to show in the usual places -- and they're all on display in NYC.

Kim and Kanye West were out in the rainy city Monday morning and as they bolted in and out of buildings ... it appeared there was a hint of a baby bump starting to show.

More importantly (if you're into this sorta thing) ... there are clear signs the sequel will begin filming soon -- Mom Boobs, Part 2! This time they mean business.

Get your tickets early.

Courtney Stodden's Mom

I Can Be a Porn Star Too

6/1/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0529-courtney-krista-stodden-tmz-instagram-02If you're looking for a Courtney Stodden porno sequel, look no further than Courtney's mom -- who says she's got a bunch of offers to have sex on tape, and she got 'em all on her own.

Krista Keller tells TMZ there's no truth to Courtney's claim that she was mooching off her daughter just to boost her own fame. Krista says she's taken several meetings, SANS Courtney, with porn industry peeps who wanted Krista for photo shoots and XXX videos.

She stresses these were not mother-daughter package deals ... strictly Krista.

Mom resigned as Courtney's manager last week over what she calls "creative differences."

As for her own sex career, sorry MILF fans -- it ain't happening. Krista says she's not trying to be famous ... she just wants to manage, and she's currently a cougar on the hunt. Just for clients.

Still, we gotta ask ...

Prince Jackson

I Graduated With High Distinction!!!

5/31/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0531-prince-graduation-twitter-01Prince Jackson proudly donned a cap and gown Saturday as he became a high school graduate ... with honors no less.

Michael Jackson's oldest son got his diploma from the exclusive Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley.  

La ToyaKatherine, Paris and other family members cheered Prince on.  When Prince's name was announced the fam stood up, screamed and whistled.  He flashed a big smile as he grabbed his diploma.

Prince has dabbled in entertainment -- appearing in the finale of "90210" -- but for now he's going the college route, but he's not going too far. Prince says he's going to Loyola Marymount University in L.A.

Congrats.

Jean-Claude Van Damme

Change of Heart

We're Not Getting Divorced

5/31/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jean-Claude Van Damme's wife has had a change of heart,  according to him, because he's no longer headed for divorce court.

The awesome actor is all over the place in our video, explaining the reason for the reconciliation.  First he suggests it's for the benefit of their kids, but then waxes poetic about his love for wife Gladys, who filed divorce docs back in March ... pulling the plug on their 15-year marriage.

The Muscles from Brussels and Gladys were married before ... between '87 and '92.  They remarried in '99.

Hopefully, third time's a charm.

Josh Dugger

Tormented by Seamen

5/31/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0529-josh-duggars-getty-tmz-wm-01Josh Dugger has become a target in the Navy.

Turns out there's a guy named Josh Dugger who is a Chief Cryptologist Technician in the United States Navy. He's based in Virginia, not that far from the other Josh Duggar who's based in D.C. 

Navy Josh tells us the scandal has created all sorts of problems for him. For starters, his colleagues just won't let it go, to the point of harassment.  

But the real abuse is coming from social media. His account has been overrun by haters, saying things like "You should be in jail." He says he's had to switch all the handles on his accounts.

0529-the-other-josh-duggar-TMZ-01Funny enough, Navy Josh -- who's married to Amy and has 2 daughters -- comes from a big family himself -- 9 kids, but not counting anymore.

ATTENTION TLC ... this Josh may be a safer bet.

FNC to Lindsay

Here's Our Defense:

Cokehead Seems to Fit ...

5/31/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0529-dina-lohan-lindsay-lohan-fox-response-TMZ-01
Fox News Channel
has responded to Lindsay Lohan's lawsuit over a comment a guest made about Lindsay and cocaine -- truth is a defense.

FNC has come out swinging, referring to LiLo this way:  "Admitted cocaine user and long-time addict Lindsay ..." 

You may recall, a guest on Sean Hannity's show said, "Lindsay Lohan's mom is doing cocaine with her." Lindsay and her mom sued FNC for defamation, but the network now says it has 3 sold defenses:

-- Sean didn't say it ... a guest did.

-- The network has a Constitutional right of free speech, without fear of lawsuits.

-- Lindsay's an admitted coke user.

And you may recall this ... Lindsay made a frantic call to her dad in 2012, which he recorded, in which she claimed she was being held hostage by Dina in a car, adding, "Mom's on coke."

Sounds fair and balanced.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar

We're Ready To Talk About the Molestation

5/30/2015 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0530-duggar-family-tlc-01

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are breaking their silence about their son molesting young girls, including some of their own daughters, and they're doing it on Fox News Channel.  

Michelle says she and Jim Bob will sit down with Megyn Kelly some time next week to, "share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given."

This could be a Hail Mary ... as we reported, our sources say TLC is leaning toward canceling "19 Kids and Counting."

FNC says the interview will air June 3rd at 9 on The Kelly File.

Chris Brown

Baby Mama Nixed

Fab Disney World Birthday for Royalty

5/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0529-chris-brown-royalty-birthday-disney-world-GETTY-01

Chris Brown offered to fly his daughter Royalty and the kid's mom to the happiest place for her first birthday, but his baby mama shut down the offer.

Brown's rep tells TMZ,  it's true he was a no show for Royalty's 1st birthday, but it's because he was shooting a music video in Miami. The rep says, "Like any working parent, Chris is doing his best to prioritize the needs of his daughter." 

But Chris had a plan ... flying "the entire family" to Disney World. It's unclear if that included King Ba, Nia Guzman's BF who has been trying to assume the role of Dad. But Chris insists Nia turned him down flat.

Nia's pissed that Chris didn't show for the shindig at Chuck E. Cheese's in Houston, but Chris says he'll throw a special party for Royalty the next time he sees her.

Celebrities ... they're just like us.

'19 Kids and Counting'

Pulled From Hulu

5/28/2015 6:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0528-hulu-hero-banner-01Hulu has pulled the plug on "19 Kids and Counting." 

The popular streaming site was bombarded with messages from users who wanted the show 86'd in the wake of the Josh Duggar molestation scandal.

Hulu responded quickly, saying, "The show page has already been removed, and is no longer hosted on Hulu."

This puts even more pressure on TLC to make a move. As we reported, we're told the network is leaning toward cancellation, but at this point, they may not have a choice.  Advertisers are fleeing in droves.

0528-hulu-404-19kidsThe show was available as recently as Wednesday afternoon.

TLC has already pulled the show from air, but has yet to decide on its long-term future ... though the smart money is on cancellation.

We reached out to Hulu for comment ... so far, no word back.

Kyle Richards

I Haven't Spoken to Kim Since

Mexican Wedding Disaster

5/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards made it clear by what she said and what she didn't say ... her sister Kim is in crisis.

We got Kyle out in Bev Hills Wednesday, and she opened up and said she hasn't spoken with Kim since Kim's daughter tied the knot in Mexico over the weekend.

As we reported, Kim was off the rails, pissing off everyone and apparently under the influence of something. Kyle says everything's okay now, but the way she says it makes it painfully obvious ... she's protecting her sister who is way off the wagon again.

As far as we know, Kim is still MIA. She hasn't returned to rehab and the last she was seen was in Cabo.

TLC's '19 Kids and Counting'

If You're Betting ...

Put $20 on Cancellation

5/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-19-kids-and-counting-TLC-01It is way more likely than not that TLC will cancel "19 Kids and Counting" ... this according to sources connected with the network.

As it was put to us, "If you're betting, you'd be wise to put money on the show getting cancelled."

Our sources say there are several reasons why sentiment inside the network leans in the direction of cancellation. First, TLC honchos feel betrayed that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar did not disclose the fact that Josh had confessed to molesting 5 young girls, some of whom were his sisters.

The other reality ... as TMZ reported, advertisers are bailing left and right, and the network is in the business of making money.

There's also a notion at TLC that they need to clear the decks of scandals. They did it swiftly with "Honey Boo Boo," and there's a strong feeling the right thing to do is cancel the Duggars as well.

When you combine anger with money, the fate of the show becomes pretty clear.

Conrad Hilton

Ex-GF Claims He's Suicidal and Dangerous

5/27/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-conrad-hilton-hunter-salomon-eg-daily-rick-salomon-tyson-salomon-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-GETTY-01Paris Hilton's brother Conrad is in desperate shape, threatening to kill himself over unrequited love ... this according to new legal docs. 

Hunter Salomon, the daughter of Rick Salomon and actress E.G. Daily, claims she dated Conrad several years ago but they've been broken up for awhile.

Beginning last September, Hunter says the 21-year-old Hilton became scarily obsessive, saying she was the love of his life and even threatening to kill himself.

You'll recall Rick Salomon was Paris' partner in one of the best-selling sex tapes of all time. It's kind of bizarre that his daughter hooked up with her brother.

Hunter says in legal docs Conrad would repeatedly show up at her home at all hours, crying to E.G. that he wanted to marry her daughter. She says last Wednesday he showed up at her home, refused to leave and told her to "get a restraining order because he can't restrain himself," and then "asked if he could please just see me before he kills himself."

Conrad has struggled with substance abuse issues, most recently threatening flight attendants on an international flight, which led to criminal charges.

A judge granted a temporary restraining order, forcing him to stay 100 yards away from Hunter, her sister Tyson, Rick and E.G.
