Kardashian Sisters to Blac Chyna Marrying Rob Won't Get You A Pass To Profit Off Our Name

12/10/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-kardashians-blac-chyna-tmz-instagram-2Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are sticking to their guns when it comes to stopping Blac Chyna from the family name -- and neither marriage nor their mom will change that.

Sources close to the sisters tell us they will not withdraw their opposition to Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- despite Chyna's side saying there's no legal war brewing.

As we told you, BC sources say Kris Jenner reached out and promised to call off the lawyers. But our K sis sources say that's not how they feel about it. We're told it's nothing personal against BC, just biz -- they feel adding an extra woman to the roster will dilute the brand they've worked so hard to build. 

We're told they think it's odd Chyna didn't move for a trademark when she was with Tyga -- although that's kinda apples and oranges. $1 if you know his last name.

Our sources close to Kris say the conversation those close to Chyna alleged the two had to smooth things over never even took place. 

On a personal level, we're told everyone in the fam is getting along well with Chyna since the birth of Dream. Still, business is business and our sources say the sisters' lawyers have made several attempts to negotiate ... but Chyna's team's gone radio silent.

Will Smith New Movie Can Flop For All I Care ... It Helped Me Heal

12/9/2016 8:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Will Smith doesn't give a damn how his new movie does at the box office or how many awards it might grab ... because it helped him cope with his dad's death, and to him, that's all that matters. 

Smith did a Q&A on Facebook Live from the company's headquarters Thursday and opened up about how "Collateral Beauty" made dealing with his dad's death easier. In the movie, Smith plays a man whose daughter dies ... and Will says he learned his dad had cancer just as film prep started. 

Will says the film allowed him to open up to his dad as he battled with cancer ... and when he passed in November, it was easier for him to say goodbye. 

Check out the clip ... you can tell Will's words really come from the heart. 

Kardashians & Blac Chyna Cease-fire Called in Family Name War ... For Now

12/9/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208-blac-chyna-kardashians-tmz-2Blac Chyna got railroaded by the Kardashians' attorneys -- not the K sisters themselves -- in her effort to trademark herself as a member of the fam ... and now Kris Jenner's doing damage control.

Sources close to BC tell TMZ ... KimKourtney, and Khloe reached out to her and assured her their lawyers were following standard ops when they filed docs to block Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- not singling her out.

The assurances were necessary after the language the lawyers used. We broke the story ... the docs said all 3 sisters would "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill" if Chyna got the green light to use the Kardashian name in entertainment.

We're told Kris personally told Chyna there's no beef ... it was a simple mix-up and she's calling off the legal eagles. For now, everyone's saying the right things to make Chyna feel better about the legal diss -- but, fact is, her trademark still hasn't been approved.

Until it is ... it's a lot of lip service.

Chris Paul to Kobe: Congrats on the Kid, But 'Keep Going Til You Have a Boy!'

12/9/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Paul is super happy that his friend, Kobe Bryant, just had his 3rd baby girl -- but he has a message for the NBA legend ... "Keep going 'til you get a boy!"

"Kobe deserves to have a little boy, man" ... the Clippers superstar added. 

We're guessing CP3 wants Kobe to experience the same father/son basketball bond he shares with his kid (it's adorable) ... and let's be honest, everyone would LOVE to see another Bryant in the NBA one day!

For the record, Kobe already has a kid with the family hoops skills -- his 10-year-old daughter, Gianna, is rumored to have a LIGHTS OUT jumper.

Plus, boys are messy anyway.

Angelina Jolie Our Kids Are Still Traumatized ... We Need a Specialist

12/8/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207_angelina_jolie_brad_pitt_tmzAngelina Jolie is imploring Brad Pitt to help find a new professional to help them and their children deal with the "trauma" of what happened on their private jet 3 months ago.

Angelina's attorney fired off an email to Brad's legal team on December 1, proposing they "participate in joint sessions with a trauma specialist so that they may learn how to best support and interact with their children."

The request makes it clear -- Jolie thinks the kids are so bad off because of what they witnessed on the plane, and the therapy process they've been going through isn't getting the job done. As we've reported, both sides agreed in September to attend family therapy sessions as part of their temporary custody agreement.

Another sign the situation is still dire -- in docs, Brad's attorney suggested their 2 eldest boys, Maddox and Pax, might not want to visit with their dad.

One source tells us the boys walked out of one session in the past, and have refused to attend others.

It's important to note ... DCFS closed out its investigation after concluding Brad did nothing that warranted official action.  DCFS could have referred the case to dependency court if it felt the kids were in danger, or recommended criminal prosecution ... it did neither.

It's unclear if he's responded to Angelina's request.

Kim, Khloe & Kourtney Crush Blac Chyna's Biz Dreams ... You'll Never Be One of Us

12/7/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-kardashian-sisters-kim-kourtney-khloe-block-blac-chyna-name-change-TMZ-01Just because Blac Chyna's marrying a Kardashian doesn't mean she can get in the club -- the Kardashian sisters are going to war to block her from cashing in on the family name.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney's companies are opposing Chyna's request to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- which she was trying to lock down for use while working in entertainment, and also on social media.

The mean girls sisters throw down the gauntlet in docs, saying if Chyna gets the trademark they'll "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill."

Translation: stay in your ex-stripper lane ... you're not one of us.

Make no mistake ... this is nasty. In the docs, they say Chyna is "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" of the Kardashian name.

Merry Christmas to all!

Lady Gaga & Taylor Kinney Some Exes Don't Talk ... We're Different

12/6/2016 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-taylor-kinney-lady-gaga-tmzSorry Little Monsters, Lady Gaga and ex-fiance Taylor Kinney are not back together -- despite a pic of him with her mom -- the exes are just doing the conscious uncoupling thing.

Gaga and Kinney called it quits in July after 5 years together, so fans freaked when he showed up on Gaga's Instagram this week. Sources tell us they still have a great relationship and talk from time to time.

Kinney happened to be in NYC and found out Gaga's Born This Way Foundation was doing the Shared Kindness event at 30 Rock. Gaga's in Europe but her mom, Cynthia, helps run the foundation and Taylor offered to help her out.

Gaga was moved enough to post the pic of them at the fundraiser.

Angelina Jolie Angling for London with Kids and U.N.'s Top Job ... Sources Say

12/6/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-fun-art-03Angelina Jolie has an endgame in her claims Brad Pitt abused one or more of their children -- she wants to move to London with the kids and score a top position in the United Nations ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.

Several well-placed sources say Brad and Angelina have not gotten along for more than a year, and she's been looking for an opportunity to end the marriage and bolt for her dream job ... with all 6 children in tow. We're told she knew that would be nearly impossible unless Brad's right to joint custody was in jeopardy.

As we reported ... Angelina told L.A. County Dept of Child and Family Services officials Brad brutalized Maddox on a private jet and engaged in other conduct that endangered the children. We know Brad strongly denied intentionally striking Maddox or engaging in any abuse, and DCFS clearly saw it his way ... closing out the investigation without taking any action.

Our sources say Angelina's move to involve DCFS was orchestrated by 2 women she's been relying on for advice for more than a year. One is a member of England's House of Lords, and the other also holds a U.K. government position. We're told they've been in Angelina's ear, convincing her she could become Secretary General of the U.N. if she plays her cards right.

Angelina, who has been paying both women handsomely for their consulting services, is all in and taking their cue that a move to London would help get her closer to the U.N. gig.

0923-launch-angelina-jolie-un-getty-02The rub, of course, is in order to take her kids out of the country ... she'd have to prove some sort of parental unfitness on Brad's part. So far she's struck out.

Jolie's rep denies there's a move planned and says Angelina is focused on the health and well being of her children. The rep adds, Angelina wants to continue therapy with the kids and Brad.

Our sources are clear and insist Europe and the U.N. post is the ultimate goal. 

The custody war is now in family court -- she wants sole physical custody and he wants joint. We're told Angelina has a slim to none chance of taking the kids 6,000 miles away from Brad.

12:53 PM PT -- The judge just ruled Katherine knew exactly what she was doing when she replaced her previous attorney with Joy Bass ... saying there is no question in his mind. 

update_grey_gray_bar

Prince Jackson looked like man on a mission ... all in the name of his grandmother, Katherine Jackson.

Michael's son appeared in a Santa Monica court Monday for a hearing regarding Katherine getting a new attorney. The new lawyer is Joy Bass, and she says she's now representing Katherine in all matters related to Michael's estate.

This, apparently, was news to the Katherine's current attorney ... and sources close to the family tell TMZ Prince is in court now to tell the judge they're disputing the new attorney's claim she's now speaking for Katherine.

We got Prince and TJ Jackson (Tito's son) on the way into court and they were tight-lipped.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Child Visitation Changes in Hands of Therapist

12/5/2016 10:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1205-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt's child custody arrangement with Angelina Jolie is in the hands of one man ... according to docs filed by Jolie.

Right now, the exes and their 6 kids are operating under a temporary custody deal agreed upon by both sides. As we've reported ... she has primary custody and Brad gets monitored visits, but the docs Angelina filed spell out the details.

According to the docs ... when and how Brad sees the children is determined by a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues. The deal says, the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D." Brad and Angie also must participate in group therapy sessions with the kids.

The terms of this deal must stay in place until there's a court order, or both parents agree to change it.

Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.

Pitt and Jolie made this arrangement in October, while Brad was still under investigation by the DCFS, but as we've reported ... the agency cleared him of any wrongdoing a month ago.

Jolie's filing essentially memorializes the temporary deal with the court. The judge signed it on Friday.

Kourtney Kardashian I'm Still Riding with Disick But Not Like That

12/3/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-kourtney-kardashian-scott-disick-TMZ-01Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are together, just not ALL the way together -- nudge nudge, wink wink -- TMZ has learned.

We're told Kourtney and Scott are on better terms than they've been in years -- he's staying clean, and has been a present father -- but she still isn't sold enough to make a romantic leap.

Rumors that Scott's already won her back just aren't true, according to our sources ... who say Kourt insists there's no intimacy. We're told Scott still stays at his own house, and although they often travel together ... it's purely for co-parenting.

But as for the future -- she's open to the idea of an encore from the Lord.

Gigi & Bella Hadid Umm, That's Our Dad Out There ... Let Him in the V.S. Party!

12/1/2016 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Creating Gigi and Bella Hadid should be enough to get you into ANY party -- especially a Victoria's Secret after-party -- yet their dad still got shut down in Paris Wednesday night.

If Mohamed Hadid was on cloud nine after seeing his daughters work the V.S. Fashion Show catwalk ... that ended abruptly when he tried to party with them. As we've reported, security was super tight for the massive event, and Mohamed had to wait out in the cold.

Eventually, a publicist came out and apologized for the embarrassing situation, and Dad got to hang with his gorgeous kids.

Tip for Mohamed -- keep a wallet-sized family shot handy at all times.

Kim Kardashian Here's What Her Day Looks Like Not for the Faint of Heart

11/30/2016 10:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130_kim_kardashian_kanye_west_tmzKim Kardashian is now charged with Superwoman tasks, which include putting her own emotional upset on hold, caring for her kids and giving a husband in crisis vital emotional support.

Here's an example of a day in the life over the last week and a half.

EARLY MORNING

Wake up her 11-month-old and 3-year-old and give them uninterrupted attention as she feeds, clothes and nurtures them. She organizes their day by getting them off to various appointments and activities.

LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON

Kim beelines it for UCLA Medical Center where her attention becomes singular ... providing emotional and various other forms of support for Kanye. Kim comforts him, deals with a slew of doctors, nurses and other health care professionals, makes medical decisions and, just as important, tries to cheer Kanye up.

LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING

Kim books it back home where she's there before the kids get home. She feeds them, spends time with them and tucks them into bed.

LATE EVENING

We're told she often then goes back to the hospital to spend more time with Kanye.

People close to the family tell us she hasn't cracked at all ... she's upbeat and strong with everyone, even in the face of a pretty crappy situation. 

As we reported, doctors have not decided when Kanye can come home, so it's Groundhog Day for Kim until further notice.
