Zendaya

I'm So Over Dreadlocks

And the Whole Giuliana Thing

2/27/2015 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


Zendaya Coleman is locks free, but not 'cause she felt bullied by Giuliana Rancic ... it's because they're too damn tight.

The Disney star was in Hollywood Thursday night, walking arm in arm with her dad (who has locks), when a photog asked if she's still pissed at Giuliana for jumping to conclusions about her follicle choices on the Oscars red carpet.

It's clear Zendaya has buried the hatchet and she're ready to move on -- but also ... pretty interesting to see she's already ditched the very hairstyle that created all the fuss.     

Lupita Nyong'o Dress

Surveillance Cams So Bad

Ray Rice Could Have Skated

EXCLUSIVE

The now-famous $150,000 dress that was stolen from Lupita Nyong'o's West Hollywood hotel room is no closer to being found because TMZ has learned the surveillance video is a bust.

Law enforcement sources tell us detectives have reviewed video from The London West Hollywood and it shows nothing leading them to the thief.   

A big problem ... the security cameras in the hotel are spotty and there was nothing trained on the area surrounding the door of Lupita's room. 

One source put it this way ... "If Ray Rice did what he did at The London, he would have gotten away with it."

Cops are stumped as to how the dress was taken. One source says it was too "long and stiff" to wear with something over it. It could have been placed in a hamper or a bag ... they just don't know.

They also don't know if it was an inside job or if someone who had access to Lupita's room stole it.

What they do know is this ... it's definitely gone. 

A photog got Lupita at JFK airport early Friday, but she was mum.

The company behind #TheDress has put the debate to bed -- it's blue and black -- and the hubbub has done wonders for its business ... thanks to the hashtag hysteria.  

#TheDress phenomenon began after a woman posted a photo of her mother's dress for her wedding ... asking people to ID the color. From there ... EXPLOSION ... with the likes of Justin Bieber (blue and black), Kim Kardashian (white and gold), and Taylor Swift (blue and black) all weighing in.

A rep for the company that makes the dress, Roman Originals, tells TMZ the dress is blue and black, but it also comes in pink and black, white and black and red and black. There isn't a white and gold option yet ... but Roman is looking to add it to the line because of all the commotion. 

As for business, Roman Originals says sales are up 347%

And here you thought a few escaped llamas would be the weirdest thing to happen on the Internet this week.

Elizabeth Taylor

Family Jewels and Cash Held Hostage

... Liz's Trust Sues

2/25/2015 1:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225-liz-taylor-getty-01One of Elizabeth Taylor's iconic jewelry pieces fetched almost $9 million in an auction -- but the buyer backed out, and now Liz's trust is suing famed auction house Christie's Inc. for screwing up the deal.  

Lizzie's Taj Mahal diamond necklace -- a gift from Richard Burton -- was one of the items hawked during Christie's 2011 auction ... which took in a whopping $156,756,576. Problem is ... the guy who bid $8,818,500 for the necklace backed out because the massive heart-shaped diamond wasn't up to snuff for him. 

Meanwhile, Christie's had already paid Taylor's trust for the necklace ... and when the guy backed out ... the auction house demanded the cash back. As you can imagine, they weren't in the giving mood. In fact, the Taylor trust is now suing Christie's.

0225-Necklace-liz-taylor-SUB-01

According to the suit ... Christie's is holding hostage millions of dollars gained from the auction of other items -- including a Bulgari ring and a Valentino fur evening bag. The Bulgari alone sold for $2.9 million. 

The Taylor trust says Christie's is strong-arming -- refusing to hand over cash from all the other items ... unless it gets back the Taj Mahal funds. 

The Taylor trust wants the court to tell Christie's to go kick rocks.

A rep for Christie's says the suit "stems from Christie's seeking the return of a small portion of proceeds due to the cancelled sale of a single item from the 1,800 lot collection."  The rep added they look forward to a "speedy resolution" on the matter.

Kid Rock

Wears a Coat Made of Otter

... and Spite!

2/25/2015 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022515_kid_rock_launchKid Rock is very proud of his otter skin jacket, not because it's warm and luxurious ... but because it's a big F-U to the animal activists ... including his ex, Pam Anderson.

Kid was at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse in New York City Tuesday night, celebrating the release of his new album, when he decided to brag about his coat ... completely unprompted. 

It's clear he's very fond of the jacket -- which he had monogrammed with a ridiculous pun -- but the whole exchange seemed purposely orchestrated to irk his animal-loving former flame. 

Even with Pam suddenly single, it seems the third ceremony between her and Kid will NOT be happening.

Kelly Osbourne

Giuliana Better Make It Right With Zendaya ...

Or I'll Quit!! [Update]

2/24/2015 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0303_Zendaya_kelly_osbourne_giuliana-rancic-getty-tmzKelly Osbourne just dropped an ultimatum on Giuliana Rancic and their "Fashion Police" bosses -- issue a mea culpa for saying Zendaya smells like a hippie pot smoker ... or she'll quit the show.

Kelly is responding to the firestorm Giuliana sparked with a comment about the Disney star's Oscar look -- which included new dreadlocks. Rancic said she thought Zendaya must smell like patchouli oil or weed. Kathy Griffin joined in on the "weed" comment.

022415_zendaya_fashion_po_launchKelly went off on a Twitter rant, saying ... "I'm giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel." She added she doesn't condone racism and is seriously questioning staying on the show.

Osbourne reminded fans she's friends with Zendaya -- who herself blasted Rancic for making such an "outrageously offensive" stereotypical comment.

It sounds like no one involved is buying Giuliana's claim her remarks "had NOTHING to do with race." update_graphic_red_bar4:30 PM PT-- Looks like Kelly has pull ... Giuliana just apologized again -- this time on the air during "E! News."

Ray J

Threatened by Fancy Watch Company ...

We Hit it First!

EXCLUSIVE

0213_Royal-Oak_RSNL_watches

Ain't nobody got time for Ray J to sell knock-off designs of an extremely high-end watch -- especially the famous Swiss timepiece company he's allegedly ripping off. 

Audemars Piguet watches are faves of LeBron James, Jay Z, and Arnold Schwarzenegger -- but the company's fired off a cease and desist letter to Ray J to block him from hawking what it calls a full rip-off of its Royal Oak watch. 

AP says the watches have multiple similarities -- including hexagonal screws placed at the corners of an octagon face. The legal docs even include tweets from consumers calling out Ray J's watch as a "blatant ripoff."

By the way AP's piece sells for more than $25,000 ... and Ray's between $150 and $500.  

Audemars gave Ray a deadline of February 3 to yank his watch, but Ray J's manager, David Weintraub, tells us he's pushing forward with the release.

Tick tock until the lawsuit.

Paris Hilton BoobsParis Hilton's ENORMOUS boobs are fake, but not surgically fake. 

Paris will not speak out publicly about her breasts, but we know the deal. Paris says privately she's had no surgery, no stem cell treatment, no artificial enhancements whatsoever, and she's annoyed people think she'd mess with her breasts. 

So what is it? The new "Paris Hilton Push-Up Bra" ... and after meticulous research, our photo dept. analyzed Paris' boob pics -- and it appears she's a truth teller.

Nothing to see here folks ... except boobs.

NBA Star to Kanye:

MAKE BIGGER SHOES

I Need a Size 18!!

2/15/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

launchNBA star JaVale McGee says size definitely matters when trying to cop some Yeezys ... telling TMZ Sports he can't style in the hottest shoe of 2015 ... because Kanye doesn't make a SIZE 18!!  

The 7-footer was enjoying the beginning of the All-Star break at 1Oak in L.A. when we asked the notorious sneakerhead when we'd see him in the most talked about shoe in the world right now.

The answer? NEVER ... or at least until Mr. West and Adidas makes them in sizes that accommodate JaVale's gargantuan hooves ... which McGee says would cost A TON of cash for the material alone!  

C'mon Kanye, look out for the (very, very, very) large brother.

How Do I Shut this Kid Up?

North's Epic Fashion Show Meltdown

2/13/2015 6:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-kim-kardashian-northwest-reutersNorth West is NOT a fan of daddy's new shoes ... Kim Kardashian had her hands more than full when the kid went full-on Chernobyl Thursday night at a NY fashion show.

The pics say it all ... Kim and North were front and center at Kanye West's Adidas unveiling at Fashion Week ... but North wasn't having any part of it and threw a fit.

From the looks on their faces ... Diddy, Anna Wintour, Jay Z, and Beyonce were amused/annoyed at the tantrum ... at one point Kim grabs North for a quick exit.

Maybe Kim should roll like Jay and Bey ... leave the little miracle at home.

Kids, right?

Kim Kardashian

My Baby's Fab in Tiny Fur ...

Suck It, Protesters

2/12/2015 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-kim-kardashian-northwest-splashKim Kardashian and North West did some mommy-daughter time in NYC ... while decked out in fur coats -- yes, they make 'em that small. 

Kim and North -- sans Kanye West -- turned quite a few heads as they were leaving their building ... and North looks like she's being engulfed. There's way more coat than kid!

Question though: Is it odd for Kim to dress her toddler in fur? Especially since Kim's had multiple run-ins with animal rights protesters in the past. 

We can't tell if the fur's real, but animal rights aside -- North's so damn cute ... SHE should be illegal!
