Kim Kardashian and step-bro Brandon Jenner had an illicit make-out session ... so intimated Brody Jenner, but in reality we've learned there's less here than meets the eye.
Our Kardashian archival sources tell us ... the "kiss" went down when Kim was around 11 and Brandon was 12. Fact is ... Kris and Bruce weren't even married at the time, but they were dating.
The kiss was part of a Truth or Dare game, and it was more like a peck on the lips.
Wow ... Kim learned a lot since she was 11.

Twins From Split
Have Never Met
7/29/2014 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The twins born more than a year ago to David Tutera and ex-partner Ryan Jurica have never met.
As TMZ previously reported, Tutera and Jurica each fertilized an egg that was implanted in the same surrogate, who gave birth to the two babies at the same time. David and Ryan split before birth ... David kept the girl, Cielo, and Ryan kept the boy, Cedric.
David -- who hosts CELEBrations on WE tv -- told Harvey and Charles on "TMZ Live" ... the kids have had zero contact because of the nuclear breakup.
Ryan tells TMZ ... he's attempted to create a relationship between the twins, but David would have none of it. Ryan says he thinks the kids need to establish a bond sooner than later, and, "I will do all that I can to foster it."
David hedged on "TMZ LIve," saying he's open to the kids connecting one day.
I Kept My Baby's Birth Details Secret
... Until Now!!
7/29/2014 12:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Maya Rudolph just filed the birth certificate for her baby -- which is interesting because she gave birth A YEAR AGO.
According to to the document -- obtained by TMZ -- Maya and longtime partner Paul Thomas Anderson gave birth to a baby girl on Aug. 1, 2013 ... naming her Minnie Ida Anderson after Maya's mother, Minnie Riperton.
Everything was pretty much on the down low until the certificate was filed Tuesday in L.A. The reason -- Maya gave birth at home, so there was no hospital to record the birth.
In California ... birth certificates must be filed before the baby turns 1, so Maya and Paul got in just under the wire.
Happy birthday, Minnie!
'Big Brother' Contestant's G-Ma
There's No Curse
I'm Not in Fear For My Life
7/26/2014 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
People die in threes ... so the urban legend goes ... but the grandma of "Big Brother" contestant Amber Borzotra is fearless -- despite the fact grandparents of two other contestants died this week.
Producers broke the news to Frankie Grande -- Ariana's bro -- about their beloved grandpa. And Friday night house guest Derrick Levasseur got similar bad news.
Nonetheless ... 64-year old Iris Beverly isn't nervous -- and same goes for her 67-year old husband. She tells us, "We don't believe in curses, when God calls my name I will go."
Beverly adds, "Them dying is a tough coincidence, but he stays healthy walking and I'm a professional piddler."
We made calls to the grandparents of some of the other contestants, but there was no answer.
Quarantine Broken Again …
Derrick's Grandpa Dies
7/25/2014 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For the second time in days, a "Big Brother" houseguest got shocking news from the outside world about a family member's death -- this time it was Derrick Levasseur's grandfather.
On tonight's live feed, houseguest Derrick was handed a note from producers -- like Frankie Grande on Wednesday evening -- and learned of the death in his family.
It's eerie … Derrick purposely lost the Head of Household competition on Thursday so Frankie would get a chance to see photos of his grandfather who died on Tuesday.
Derrick shared his news with Frankie in the house tonight … and said his family isn't as close. He said he wasn't planning to leave the house for the funeral on Sunday.
As we told you … it is extremely rare for producers to break the 'BB' house quarantine even once in a season.
Reconnecting with Family
Per Doctor's Orders
7/25/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paris Jackson is back in the L.A. area -- possibly with a boyfriend -- and we've learned the point of the visit is to re-establish Jackson family ties.
Paris was hanging out in Calabasas Wednesday night with some friends as guardian T.J. Jackson followed closely behind. It looks like the guy with the dark hair might be a date or a boyfriend.
Sources connected to the Jacksons tell TMZ ... the doctors who have been treating Paris after she tried to take her life have told her she needs to create a family support system ... because she's become estranged from her entire family.
We're told doctors were concerned 16-year-old Paris' only meaningful relationship has been with Debbie Rowe -- her biological mother who does not have custody.
Doctors want her to mend fences with Katherine, her siblings and other immediate family ... they think it's important to her healing.
Paris tried to take her own life by cutting herself a year ago. She's been living in Utah at a boarding school where she's receiving therapy.
My Marriage is Over
7/24/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke is waving the white flag ... telling people in his camp his marriage to Paula Patton has collapsed.
Thicke certainly gave a strong sign the union is over by listing his L.A. home Monday. Paula has not lived in the house since their separation in February, after that grab-ass pic became public.
Sources connected with Robin tell TMZ ... an attorney is already working on a financial settlement -- separating assets.
Our sources say, however, neither side has hired a divorce lawyer.
Thicke is saying he will NOT be the one who files for divorce ... she'll have to do it. But he says he's done begging and is moving on.
Ariana Grande Hides Grandpa's Death
From Brother Frankie
7/23/2014 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Big Brother" is now keeping a deep secret -- something that could derail the show if revealed too soon -- and it involves the death of one of Ariana Grande's relatives.
Ariana's grandfather died Tuesday. He's also the grandpa of Ariana's brother, Frankie Grande, who's a contestant on "Big Brother."
It seems just before he died the grandfather knew Frankie might bail from the show if he found out, so one of grandpa's last wishes was to keep his death a secret from Frankie.
Ariana was chronicling her grandpa's illness ... recently posting pictures with him in the hospital. But Frankie never saw them per the rules of the show.
Ariana made her grandfather's wishes clear, tweeting, "asked grandps last week if he wanted us to pull frankie off bb & he said "no way! he's gotta play the game even tho i don't understand it"
It seems from the "Big Bro" live feeds ... Frankie is still in the dark over his grandpa's death.
7:00 PM PT -- Producers just told Frankie about the death.
Robin Thicke & Paula Patton

Can You Say, Final Nail?
7/22/2014 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If Robin Thicke's begging ever works, and he actually gets back together with Paula Patton -- they'll be living somewhere new -- their Bel Air home is officially on the market.
TMZ has confirmed the 3,158 square foot home was listed Monday with an asking price of $2,985,000.
It was originally purchased by Robin's dad, Alan Thicke back in 1990 for a paltry $910,000 -- though we're told Robin's name is now on the deed.
We're told neither Paula or Robin has officially moved out of the 2-story crib -- with awesome views over Sunset Blvd -- though we know they haven't slept under the same roof since separating in February.
The pad includes a recording studio where Robin may have worked on songs like "Blurred Lines," "Lost Without You," and "Get Her Back" -- which he obviously hasn't.
The question: If you're a newlywed couple looking for a house -- would you dare?

But NOT Her Husband
7/22/2014 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Angie Harmon just snagged a long-term protective order for her family ... well, everyone except her husband, ex-NFL star Jason Sehorn.
Harmon went to Santa Monica court Tuesday without a lawyer ... she represented herself.
Harmon convinced the judge ... Janice Lee Davis posed a significant threat to her and her family to warrant an order keeping her at a distance ... but "family" did not include Jason.
The order covers her, her 3 kids, a nanny and a family friend who lives at the home ... but no hubby.
People close to Angie tell us ... she didn't include Jason because he's never at the L.A. house ... he lives at their main residence on the East Coast. She's in L.A. with the kids while she shoots her show, "Rizzoli & Isles."
Richard Pryor Jr.
Fires off Legal Threat ...
I'll Sue if Stepmom Goes Forward with Biopic
7/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Richard Pyror was dying and mentally incapacitated when his wife duped him into signing over the rights to his name ... so claims Pryor's son, who's trying to shut down a movie about his dad.
Richard Pryor Jr. has fired off a cease and desist letter to Jennifer Lee Pryor, demanding she stop production of the Lee Daniels directed biopic immediately.
TMZ obtained a copy of the letter in which Richard Jr. accuses Jennifer of using "illegal, fraudulent" activity to get the rights. The document isn't more specific about the alleged fraud.
Richard Jr.'s lawyer tells us her client believes Pryor was in poor mental and physical health when he signed over the rights in 2005. Pryor died in December of that year.
Jennifer has been battling Pryor's children over the film -- including who should play Pryor.
Richard Jr. is threatening legal action if the movie goes forward. We reached out to Jennifer for comment ... so far no word back.
Faux Son Drops $50 Million Lawsuit
7/22/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The comedian who kinda faked being Eddie Murphy's son has now backed off his defamation suit against Eddie ... admitting the suit was BS and pinning the blame on his dumb management.
Brando tells us he was hoodwinked into filing his $50 million defamation lawsuit, in which he claimed Eddie was threatening to destroy him with lies and even physical violence.
It's easy to understand why Eddie was pissed ... Brando changed his last name to Murphy, performed with Richard Pryor's son in the "Sons of Comedy" tour, and showed up at the coffee shop Eddie frequented, often screaming, "My father won't talk to me."
It sounds like someone scared the crap out of Brando ... and we're guessing it's Eddie's pit bull lawyer Marty Singer. So Brando dropped the case, telling us, "It was never my intention to offend Mr. Murphy."
Funny thing ... some people find $50 million lawsuits offensive.
