Chicago West Twitter Handle's Taken ... But Owner Would Hand it Over

1/20/2018 12:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might have another baby gift coming their way soon ... all they have to do is ask.

Jon Wyatt -- a grain trader and farmer who owns the Twitter handle @Chicagowest -- tells TMZ ... he's willing to hand it over to Kim and Kanye for their new baby girl if they want it, because selling it "just kind of seems wrong."

We're told so far, the couple hasn't reached out to Jon about his Twitter account ... nor has anyone else.

As for why Wyatt has the @Chicagowest handle ... he says his name was taken when he signed up for Twitter, and he'd just decided to leave Chicago and move out west to the mountains. Makes sense.

Kim and Kanye revealed their baby's name is Chicago -- Kanye's hometown -- on Friday, but she's already going by the nickname Chi (Shy).

Jon tweeted out his congrats.

Kanye West Chicago Makes Me Smile!!!

1/20/2018 7:15 AM PST

Kanye West is basking in the glow of naming his daughter.

Kanye was all smiles Friday in Calabasas as he arrived at his design studio. As we reported, Kanye and Kim named their newborn Chicago, although they immediately decided she'd be known as Chi.

Kanye and Kim didn't pick the name before their daughter was born, presumably because they wanted to eyeball her and see if her face triggered a name.

Kanye was raised in Chicago and still has deep roots there, so it makes a lot of sense.

1/19/2018 10:18 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose a very unique name for baby #3 -- Chicago ... Kanye's hometown ... but it's a good bet she'll be known by a certain nickname.

Kim announced the name on her app by simply posting "Chicago West."

As we reported ... Kim and Kanye had their third child via surrogate, who gave birth Monday to a healthy girl weighing 7 lbs. 6 oz. Kim was in the delivery room during the birth, and we're told she was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby.

As you know, they already have 4-year-old North, and 2-year-old Saint. We're told the kids have been referring to her by the nickname Chi (pronounced Shy).

Welcome to the family, Chicago!!!

Kris Jenner Stocks Up for 3 New Grandkids With Major Stroller Binge

1/19/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kris Jenner really is the super (rich) grandma we all wish we had ... 'cause she dropped close to $10k to make sure her 3 new grandkids will be strollin' in the dough.

Kris recently picked up 5 new pricey-as-hell baby strollers for Kim, Khloe and Kylie's kids -- all of which are valued at nearly $11,000 total ... even though she only spent around $8k.

Sources tell us Kris recently purchased 3 Silver Cross Balmoral Prams -- 2 black, 1 white -- at the Couture Kids baby store on Robertson Blvd. in WeHo, which cost $2,699 each. That's $8,097, if you're counting.

We're also told she was gifted 2 Silver Cross wave strollers, which normally cost $1,299 each. Sources say they were shipped out to Kris Thursday ... she put in her orders and requests at least 3 weeks ago.

As we reported ... Kris didn't skimp on baby gear for Kim's newest little girl. Looks like the other babies-to-come are getting the same treatment.

Brooke Hogan Dad Would Kick Ass as Senator But I Want Him in the Ring

1/18/2018 4:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Brooke Hogan's not exactly jumping for joy at the prospect of her dad running for Senator -- but only because she thinks his heart's really in the squared circle ... of wrestling, not politics.

We got Hulk Hogan's daughter Thursday outside the Sally Hershberger salon in L.A. -- and much like her father, she's confident he'd be a winner if he chooses to run for U.S. Senate.

She says he'd be great at bringing people together, and firmly believes everything he's gone through the past few years would prepare him for Washington.

Like Roger Stone, Brooke agrees candidate Hogan could overcome past scandals. However, like millions of fans, she'd prefer to see Hulk in a wrestling ring.

Ex-NYG Star Derrick Ward Accused of Brutality Against Wife

1/18/2018 4:16 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former New York Giants running back Derrick Ward threatened to kill his wife and physically attacked her ... so she claims in new legal docs.

Naomi Lee Allen-Ward just got a restraining order, claiming Derrick has been verbally, emotionally and physically abusive toward her.

She gives several instances in her docs, including one where she says he was schooling her daughter about scuffed shoes and she chimed in to help calm down the situation. She says he responded, "You always have to f***ing say something! I hate you! I'll kill you! I don't care if I go to jail."

In another instance, during an argument in October of last year, she says he lunged toward her, poked her in the face and put his hands around her throat, saying, "You're so f***ing stupid."

She says she's been on the receiving end of monthly outbursts since their relationship began 9 years ago, but he became physically abusive over the last year. She says he shoves her, punches walls, breaks objects ... all in front of their children.

The restraining order requires Derrick to stay 100 yards away from his wife and children. 

We reached out to Ward ... so far, no word back.

Justin Bieber Sweet Vacay with His 'Proud' Mama

1/18/2018 11:15 AM PST

Justin Bieber's not only reconciled with his mother ... he's carved out some quality time with her in the tropical paradise of the Maldives.

The Biebs and his mom, Pattie Mallette, are vacationing together, which is a big deal. They've been estranged for years, and only recently started reuniting. Based on Pattie's own words ... it's going very well.

She posted this pic and gushed ... "I'm so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming. None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good 'fruit' you bear. I admire your character and integrity."

Since canceling his Purpose Tour, in part to focus on his religion, Justin's reconciled with Selena Gomez ... and now his mom.

There's a definite pattern.

Ex-NBA Player Sebastian Telfair Hit with Restraining Order ... Car-Smashing Rampage

1/18/2018 9:37 AM PST
Breaking News

Sebastian Telfair -- former NBA point guard -- has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife and kids after she claims he went on a violent window-smashing rampage at their home. 

Samantha Telfair filed court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, claiming Sebastian showed up to her home in Irvine, CA on Jan. 12 and went nuclear on the doorbell when he realized she wasn't home. 

32-year-old Telfair began cussing like crazy and kicking the door -- even when the couple's two young kids came out of the house and begged him to stop. 

When Samantha finally got home, Sebastian approached her aggressively -- but she was able to get into the house. Instead, Samantha claims, Sebastian bashed in the front windshield of her car. 

Cops were called and an emergency restraining order was issued against Sebastian. 

Samantha says she's worried about Sebastian's overall mental health --  saying he's threatened to kill himself and has "become increasingly hostile, unstable and violent."

She also gave police a photo of the guns officials confiscated from Sebastian during an arrest in NY back in June. 

A judge granted a temporary restraining order against Telfair. There's a hearing in the matter set for next month. 

Kris Jenner Drops Over $10k on Baby Gear ... For Kim & Kanye's New Girl

1/18/2018 9:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kris Jenner doesn't scrimp on her grandkids, especially not for the newest Kardashian girl -- for whom she just dropped over $10,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Kris hit up baby boutique Petit Tresor in WeHo late last month and spent at least $10k on some pricey baby merch for Kim and Kanye's latest bundle of joy.  

We're told Kris knew the baby would be due in January, so she wanted to get her order in early since a lot of this stuff is custom-made and would take a while to get delivered.

As for the order itself ... sources say Grandma Jenner bought a roughly $3,000 silver cross pram for kids -- which, we're told, was intended for North to push her new little sister around in. She also picked up a handcrafted Anaiza wooden crib for at least $6,000.

Last, but not least ... sources say Kris snapped up a bunch of custom baby outfits with rose applique for ALL of her grandkids at a couple hundred bucks each.

Like we said ... never scrimps.

John Stamos Future Papa's a Baby Whisperer!

1/18/2018 6:50 AM PST

John Stamos ain't got daddy issues ... never mind he's gonna be a first-time papa.

We got the "Full House" star at LAX with his pregnant fiancée, Caitlin McHugh, in tow and wondered what it'll be like to a first-time father at 54. Our photog might've touched a nerve there, so he pivoted and then asked ... if his TV dad skills will translate in real life.

John cracked a joke, but the future DILF revealed he's actually really great around babies.

Have mercy!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift's alleged stalker is facing new charges after prosecutors say they uncovered a new batch of creepy emails he sent, threatening to kill her entire family ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Frank Andrew Hoover sent the new emails to Taylor's father, Scott, between May 2015 and Oct. 2016. According to the 122-page indictment one terrifying email read, "Decided that we are going to end all the Swifts on one day because I can’t stand that virus shit your daughter spread." 

Others included ..."The evil family of devils: Scott, Austin, Taylor, Andrew. Sincerely, the end real son of god" -- and, "This article is not a joke and is why god is going to burn them into the desert for me." 

Another simply said, "Go to hell, Swift."

Hoover also allegedly told Scott, "Enjoy the brain aneurysms and death."

As we reported ... Hoover was arrested for violating a restraining order by allegedly tailing Taylor while she was in Texas back in 2016. 

The new charges are for stalking and repeatedly violating a restraining order.

The Game Father Dies at 65

EXCLUSIVE

The Game's father, George Taylor, died unexpectedly in his sleep Wednesday morning ... TMZ has learned. 

We're told a family member found him unresponsive in his home in Apple Valley, CA ... and alerted a neighbor who called 911. The Fire Dept. arrived at 8:30 AM this morning. He was unresponsive, and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

We're told, at this point, It doesn't appear there's any foul play. The coroner's office has George's body now, and is investigating. 

Game rapped about his dad in the song, "Bloody Moon," off one of his albums. The lyrics on the track go, "My father left me when I was seven, at a home / Left me but took his chrome, I looked up and blood was gone / Man, fuck it, guess in the world I'm all alone."

They've had an off/on relationship since Game's been an adult. It's unclear what the status of their relationship was recently.

George was 65.
