In Silence

breaking news

0908-bella-hadid-getty-01Bella Hadid and her brother Anwar have both suffered from Lyme disease ... the same disease her mother Yolanda Foster has battled for several years ... and almost no one knew until Thursday night.

Yolanda revealed her children were plagued by the same tickborne, often debilitating disease she's battled. Yolanda, who has been hospitalized for prolonged periods, said, "When my 2 youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me."

Yolanda made the announcement when she received the "Power of One" award in NYC.

Caleb Logan Bratayley

Family Says He Died From

'Undetected Medical Condition'

breaking news

1006-caleb-logan-instagram-01The family of 13-year-old YouTube star Caleb Logan Bratayley says the boy died from an undetected medical condition.

No other details were given, except to say the family will have more definitive answers soon. It's unclear how much the family has been told, but it appears they know generally what triggered Caleb's death.

Caleb's memorial will be livestreamed on Periscope and Facebook.  

Caleb passed away suddenly Thursday night in Maryland.


'Jerry Springer' Producer

Cops Say She Lied

Over Sister's Suicide

10/6/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0320-jill-blackstone-coleman-rayner-split-dateThe 'Jerry Springer' producer whose sister died in their garage is now in the hot seat with the LAPD, because TMZ has learned cops believe her story about the death doesn't make sense.

Jill Blackstone's sister Wendy died in March from a combination of carbon monoxide poisoning and Xanax. At the time it appeared Wendy, who was blind and partially deaf, committed suicide ... even leaving a note.  

Jill had said she had no idea Wendy wanted to kill herself. As for how a Weber grill and charcoal got into the garage, Jill told police the Weber grill was for warmth and the coals in the trash can were for roasting marshmallows.

But we've learned cops now paint a very different picture of what they say happened. Our law enforcement sources tell us when they first interviewed Jill she told cops she had no idea her sister wanted to kill herself. But cops say it's very clear Jill -- not Wendy -- wrote the "suicide" note.

Our sources say cops are "confident" Jill assisted her sister -- not out of vengeance but mercy for her condition. Even if Jill's motive was mercy-based, it would still be a crime, and we're told the case is now "on the front burner" for possible criminal prosecution.

Orange Is the New Dad!

10/6/2015 6:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-caitlyn-kylie-jenner-pcn-01Caitlyn Jenner and daughter Kylie grabbed lunch Monday ... the first time they've been seen in public since Kylie's 18th birthday party. 

The two nibbled on sushi at Sugarfish in Calabasas after attending a NOH8 event in LA. 

They were matching right down to the lipstick. Caitlyn opted for a more neutral color, while Kylie wore blue to show her support in honor of world bullying day.


Lorenzo Lamas

My Son's Got Demons But ...

He's On His Own Now

10/5/2015 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lorenzo Lamas hopes his son can pull through his legal troubles -- he got busted for theft at a Target -- but dad's hardly jumping through hoops to save A.J. Lamas' bacon.

We asked Lorenzo about A.J.'s theft, battery, and child endangerment arrest. He was also allegedly carrying a meth pipe. L.L. sounded concerned about his son, telling us ... "He's in a difficult spot. My heart and prayers go out to him." 

But Lorenzo also hinted A.J. has burned him in the past -- "My family has been there for him on numerous occasions."

Watch the clip ... 2 words come to mind: tough love.


Tom Cruise

No Parents Were Invited to My Daughter's Wedding

10/5/2015 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-tom-cruise-isabella-cruise-GETTY-01Tom Cruise did not go to his daughter's wedding, but we found out he was nobody special, because none of the parents -- on either side -- were invited.

There are reports Tom snubbed 22-year-old Bella, who married Max Parker last month. Sources connected with Tom and Bella tell TMZ, she and Max wanted a super small wedding in London with a few friends and that was it ... no parents were invited.

We're told Tom was not only cool with the decision, he footed the bill for the wedding and party at the fancy schmancy Dorchester hotel.

Some media reports suggest Tom stayed away because Max is not a Scientologist. We're told that was never an issue. We're told Tom and Max get along well ... Max and Bella spent Thanksgiving and XMAS with Tom.

Caleb Logan Bratayley

13-Year-Old YouTube Star

Dies Mysteriously

10/5/2015 9:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1005-caleb-logan-instgram-02Caleb Logan Bratayley seemed like a perfectly healthy 13-year-old one hour -- and the next ... the YouTube star was dead, and the only explanation so far is he suffered a "medical emergency."

Caleb -- whose family has racked up more than a billion YouTube views -- died Thursday night in Maryland. Law enforcement sources tell us a 911 call was placed at 7 PM, and police and fire responded to the family's home.

We're told Caleb was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

It is a puzzling death because he's only 13. When the family announced the tragedy they only said he "passed away of natural causes." Our sources say it was not suicide, there were no drugs, and there is no history of drug use. The 911 call was for a "medical emergency."

The coroner will conduct an autopsy as part of its investigation.

1001_mike_vick_gettyBig night for Michael Vick ... starting his first game as the Steelers QB ... and he's so pumped, Mike's flying his family to Pittsburgh so they can be there to support him.

A rep for Vick tells TMZ Sports ... he's putting his immediate family on a plane and flying them to Pittsburgh so they can watch #2 and the Steelers take on the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field tonight.

Damn Hot for All

10/1/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-kristen-cavalleri-splash-01Kristin Cavallari can scarf down all the frozen yogurt she wants because pregnancy cravings look really good on the expectant hot mom.

The former 'Hills' star is close to popping out her third kid with Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler. Kristin's about about 7-8 months along, but was still in MILF mode when she stepped out in West Hollywood for froyo with her son.

The Bears might be 0-3 on the season, but Kristin's still winning.


Kim and Kanye

Baby Yeezus

To Be Born on Birthday of Baby Jesus

9/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928_kim_kanye_christmas_baby_compositeKim Kardashian's due date is December 25, 2015 ... seriously.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, doctors have back timed the date of conception and they've been told their son will be born on Xmas day.

Obviously, the due date is always a little up in the air, but Xmas is the likely date, and here's why. We're told Kim has a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterus, which could be dangerous.  

We're told as of now, doctors are planning on a natural birth on Xmas day, but a c-section might be necessary that day for safety reasons, if she doesn't give birth beforehand. 

And, we're told, Kim and Kanye have already booked a Deluxe Maternity Suite at Cedars-Sinai in L.A.

Momma Dee

I Didn't Dine and Ditch ...

9/27/2015 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-momma-dee-INSTAGRAM-01Momma Dee says her arrest was just a big misunderstanding ... and she had every intention of paying her tab.

Momma Dee tells TMZ ... she was in the bathroom when the check came and everyone in her party had bounced. She says even though it was her birthday, the dinner wasn't planned specifically for her and she was just an invited guest to dinner. When she came back from the bathroom she says she was bombarded by restaurant managers and cops who claimed she was dining and ditching.

She says she was willing to pay her part of the check, but would not pay for the others and that's when she was busted.

As we previously reported ... the "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star was arrested Saturday in Milwaukee for skipping out on a $500 dinner bill.

Momma Dee spent a few hours in jail and was released after posting a $250 bail.



Kim K vs. Kylie J

Hold Up Kylie ...

Kim's Still The Queen

9/25/2015 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-kim-k-kylie-j-tmz-01Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are in a battle for queen, but we've learned based on the numbers, Kim is poised to win the war. 

Kylie supporters came out in droves 10 days ago when the Kardashian/Jenner sisters' pay websites launched, with 74% of users downloading Kylie's app -- Kim was in third place with 9%. But we got hold of the numbers, and the tables are turning ... fast.

With more than a million users now using the pay sites, we're told Kylie has 40% of the users ... Kim stands at 30%. Kylie is clearly still winning, but we're told there has been a steady and continued narrowing of the gap, and Kim could overtake Kylie in days.

Kim -- who does not like losing to anyone -- has turned up the heat. She's posted ass-shots and other hot pics on her various social media platforms, driving fans to her app.  

0925_kim_kardashian_sexy_instagram_photos_SUB_2The app source who's worked with the family says Kim knows how to use social media better than anyone in her family -- Kylie included -- and when she wants to win, she'll win. And she wants to win.

Kim posted a video with Kylie promising to pass on the media torch and teach her all of her tricks. Our advice to Kylie? Michael Jordan used that trick before with the youngins ... and it worked every time.
