Billy Ray Cyrus

Raising a New Miley

... Rocks Live with Noah

6/3/2015 9:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Ray Cyrus can't stop, won't stop ... cranking out talented spawn -- he performed live with Miley Cyrus' kid sister in L.A., and it sounds like the family's got a new revenue stream coming.

Noah Cyrus jumped on stage for open mic night at Crave Café … and Billy Ray backed her up on guitar for a few songs. It was no sold out stadium ... but hey, even Miley started somewhere.

The 15-year-old -- who sounds a lot like big sis -- belted out her take on one of Dad's hits ... "Could've Been Me.”

Watch ... for the singing, and Billy Ray's gushing afterward. He should be happy -- with such talented kids ... he's all setup for one sweeeet nursing home.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar

Covered Up Molestation

6/3/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521-the-duggar-family-tlc-3Josh Duggar's parents knew he repeatedly molested his five-year-old sister but failed to notify authorities for at least 16 months ... this according to a just-released police report.

According to the report, obtained by In Touch, Josh confessed to Jim Bob on 3 separate occasions that he molested at least one sister. Here's the worst part ... after the first confession, Jim Bob did nothing and the molestations continued. And after the second confession, Jim Bob again did nothing to notify authorities or even get him help and again the molestations continued. 

After the third confession, Josh's parents enrolled him in a treatment program, but they did not notify authorities until at least 4 months after the last confession.  And get this ... the delay was at least 16 months after Josh's first confession.

Put another way, had Jim Bob and Michelle notified authorities immediately after Josh's first confession, they might have taken action that would have prevented the subsequent molestations.

It's possible the Duggar parents could have been prosecuted for permitting abuse of a minor, but the statute of limitations has long since passed. 

TLC still hasn't announced the fate of "19 Kids and Counting," but now that there's evidence the parents may have covered up the crime, it's going to be hard for TLC to keep the show afloat.

R&B Singer Monica

Drops Stacks o' Cash for

Ridiculously Ballin' Bday Party

EXCLUSIVE

0602_age_of_aquarium_launch_wm

Monica and NBA star Shannon Brown clearly have money to burn, because they blew $70,000 on a birthday party ... for her 10-year-old son!

Lil Rocko marked a decade on Earth by celebrating at the Georgia Aquarium. The theme was Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ... a show that was off the air 9 years before he was born. 

Gotta say the party was awesome ... it looks like they're underwater, staring at the captured sharks.

There was plenty of sugar ... candy apples, cotton candy and a topsy-turvy cake.

Among the guests ...Toronto Raptors guard Lou Williams, Future's kids, and Lil Rocko's classmates. Lil's pop, rapper Rocko, was also there (and footed part of the bill).

The only thing missing was the Fresh Prince himself ... and maybe Aunt Viv (the first one, of course).

Jenni Rivera's Kids

Kids Moving On …

Time to Cash In On Mom’s Estate

6/2/2015 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_jenny_rivera_house_launchJenni Rivera's family is ready to unload one of her prized possessions -- the massive estate she designed 3 years before her death ... and they're hoping to get $4.5 mil for it.

Jenni’s dream home sits on 4 acres of hilltop land overlooking Encino, CA. The estate has 7 bedrooms and 10 baths including marble floors and a double wrought iron staircase.

The legendary Mexican singer originally bought the property in 2009 for $3.3 mil, but sunk another $500k worth of personal upgrades into the place. Right now Jenni’s kids are living there, but we're told they're ready to bolt if the right buyer comes along. 

Check out the gallery -- if you're into private hiking trails, and pools with a waterfalls ... this is your kinda pad. Of course, you also need a few mil in the bank.

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

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.
