Bruce is on a 'Journey'

1/26/2015 8:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012615_kimk_et_launchKim Kardashian gave what could be a revealing peek into the life of Bruce Jenner, saying, "I guess I'll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that's his journey to talk about."

With rumors swirling about Bruce's ever-changing appearance, Kim seemed to be signaling something significant was afoot.  

She told Entertainment Tonight, "I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way ... I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right."

Kim and the brood got together a week ago in a show of support for Bruce.

The interview airs Tuesday on Entertainment Tonight.

Dwight Howard

Uncle Is the D.A.

In Child Abuse Investigation

1/26/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0123-dwight-howard-uncle-tmz-01

Fact: The child abuse investigation into NBA star Dwight Howard has just been kicked to the Atlanta PD. 

Fact: If charges are brought against Dwight, the matter would be prosecuted by the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. 

Fact: The Fulton County District Attorney ... is Dwight Howard's uncle. 

We broke the story ... the Cobb County PD was initially handling the investigation into allegations Dwight beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle. 

But the CCPD tells us investigators now believe the alleged incident occurred in Fulton County, where Dwight's uncle has been the head prosecutor in charge since 1997. 

So, what does it mean? Paul Howard is almost certainly going to have to recuse himself from the case ... which would likely mean the prosecution would be handled by the Georgia Attorney General (and judging by his photo, we're guessing there's no relation).

If Paul doesn't recuse himself, you could bet the alleged victim will put up a helluva fight ... for obvious reasons. 

We reached out to the Atlanta PD and the Fulton County DA for comment. So far no word back.

After 5 Bitter Years

breaking news

0125-courtney-love-frances-cobain-hug-GETTY-01Courtney Love reunited with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain ... apparently closing the book on a feud that's been raging for years.

Love and Bean hugged it out Saturday at the Sundance premiere of "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" ... the first time they've been seen together in more than 5 years.

Remember, Courtney lost legal control over then 17 year-old Frances in 2009.  In 2012, Love accused ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of hitting on Bean.  

The 22 year-old blasted her mom over the allegation ... urging Twitter to ban her mom from the site.

Nothing is forever ... and that can be a good thing.

But I Do Need ...

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June Sugar Bear Child SupportMama June knows Sugar Bear is broke as a joke ... so she's willing to cut him a break on child support -- but she tells TMZ she's demanding something more important from him. 

Mama June says she and Suge aren't squabbling over money because she's flush right now, and realizes he's strapped for cash. However, she's putting her foot down when it comes to him spending time with Alana.

She says daddy-daughter time will be tricky once she moves to her new house 90 minutes away from McIntyre, GA ... where SB is living. June says they're working out a plan for regular visitation.  

We're told Sugar's determined to see his daughter -- and June says they've kept things very civil when it comes to Alana.

You can't keep a bear from his honey.

Drake Dad Music
Drake
's dad is making a return to music, but he'll be doing it without his famous son ... because Drizzy was just too busy to hit the studio with his pops.

Dennis Graham put out the word on Instagram ... he was looking for a "classy" female rapper for a new song -- and in his words, "ghetto style" rappers need not apply.

Well, Graham tells TMZ he found his woman in rookie rapper Ze Monroe, and she's going to rhyme on his new song, "Kinda Crazy." The original plan was for Drake to guest star too, but he couldn't fit studio time into his schedule ... but DG says there are no hard feelings.

As for future family collabs? Dennis, who's in his early 60s, says he was asked to do a club gig near Coachella -- where Drake's headlining -- but adds he's not sure he can stay up that late.  

C'mon pops! The Motto?

Cory Monteith's Estate

Dad Confesses He Was a Deadbeat

1/20/2015 4:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cory Monteith DadCory Monteith's father could be cut off from the "Glee" star's estate funds ... after admitting he abandoned his son for most of his life. 

In new court docs ... Joe Monteith, cops to not communicating with his son from the time he was "nine years old until his twenties" -- and to ditching on child support payments. Cory's mother says under the law... Joe's confession means he doesn't deserve a cent from the estate. 

The docs reveal Cory's estate is worth $810,000 -- and his old roommate, Zachary Larson, will be in charge of paying off various debts ... such as $80K in taxes and another $15K to unnamed creditors.

Since Monteith did not have a will when he died in 2013 from a drug overdose -- the lion's share of his estate will go to his mother.

Bruce never reacted, but the pic says a lot about family support.

Scott Disick

Turning Over a New Leaf

... For a Price

1/19/2015 2:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0119-scott-disick-twitterScott Disick finally may be ready to get sober and clean up his act in the name of family ... but you better believe he's gonna make a buck off of it.  

Disick (or more likely his assistant) posted an obviously-sponsored tweet Monday, writing, "It's 2015, get up! Perfect start to the year. My @BooteaUK teatox from Bootea.com. Time for a cleanse!"

Considering Disick's recent bender in Aspen just a month after baby mama Kourtney Kardashian gave birth ... you have to wonder if it's too little too late.

Mama June Kicks Out Sugar Bear

Mama June
 has kicked Sugar Bear to the curb again ... and it's the same old story -- she thinks he's just too horny.

June tells TMZ she told him to leave after finding out he's continued engaging in online romances. She says Sugar Bear insists it's harmless ... he just does it for the thrill, but she's not buyin' it.

Sugar Bear and June have been trying to rekindle their relationship after she promised to stop seeing convicted child molester, Mark McDaniel.

As for Sugar Bear ... we're told he's sick of June's accusations, and he's done with her.

And June's not the only one that recently made a big home purchase ... we're told SB quietly rented a 4-bed 2-bath double wide with his brother ... so he can stay close to Honey Boo Boo.

Scott Disick

On Aspen Tear

1 Month After Child's Birth

1/16/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick Partying
Scott Disick
left baby duty to Kourtney last weekend ... choosing to take his boys to Aspen where we're told he drunkenly trashed a hotel room.

Sources at Hotel Jerome tell TMZ ... the first night Scott and his crew -- which included famed artist Alec Monopoly -- went out on the town, and when they came back one of his buds jumped over a counter at the bar in the lobby and stole a bottle -- which we think is Johnny Walker Black Label -- which they took back to the room. The hotel didn't call the cops, but charged him $400.

But that was just the beginning of alcohol consumption. Scott and posse then ordered $840 worth of booze. The next night they ordered $600 in booze up to the room.

Management sent staffers up to the room during the weekend because other guests complained about the smell of weed.  

When Scott left, the hotel staff found the room littered with bottles and cigarette butts. It was a no-smoking room so the hotel added $500 to the bill.

Scott's sobriety has been an ongoing issue. His girlfriend threw him out of the house last summer for partying and it's become a serious issue in their relationship.

Nick Cannon

Files for Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon
beat Mariah Carey to the courthouse ... we've learned he has quietly filed for divorce.

The timing is interesting. We found out Nick filed papers December 12. The date is relevant because on December 2, Mariah showed up 3 hours late to tape a segment for the NBC tree-lighting special.  

At the time we posted a story ... Mariah was on the phone with her lawyers going over the terms of her property settlement. That syncs up with Nick filing papers a week later, after they hashed out a deal.

Short story ... Mariah has completely detached Nick from her new, very lucrative deal in Vegas.

Usher's Ex-Wife Tameka

Congrats!

My Kids Can Be In Your Wedding

1/15/2015 2:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Usher Wedding
Usher
's ex-wife Tameka Foster has a short memory ... she's so happy for Usher and Grace Miguel she'd not only love for her kids to be at his wedding ... they can be in it.

"Nasty" is a gross understatement in characterizing the war between Usher and Tameka over their two boys. Yet now we're told she's more than fine if their kids see him swap vows with the woman she claims hooked up with him while their youngest was only 3-months. 

Usher popped the question earlier this week to his manager/girlfriend and Tameka wishes them nothing but the best. 

Tameka must be over getting booted by Usher from his $3M Georgia mansion in 2012 ... and forgot claiming he cheated on her with one of her bridesmaids from their wedding.

Even if they're just empty words ... sounds like she's taking little groomsmen steps in the right direction.

She shouldn't hold her breath for an invite.

Snoop Dogg's Son

I Don't Smoke Weed

... I'm Focused On Football

1/15/2015 8:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

011515_snoop_and_son_launchHis father is one of the most famous pot-smokers on the planet ... but Snoop Dogg's football star son says he doesn't touch the sticky icky ... because his body is a smoke-free temple. 

Cordell Broadus -- one of the top high school wide receivers in the country -- appeared on ESPN's new documentary series "Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream" ... and addressed the green elephant in the room. 

"I don't mess with that at all," Cordell said ... "If you're an athlete, you shouldn't cheat your body."

As for Snoop, the Doggfather says he goes out of his way to keep his weed habit away from Cordell ... saying, "I don't want him no where near it."

Cordell has yet to announce where he's heading to college next year -- but you gotta imagine this topic was on the mind of every major coach recruiting him.
