1130-kardashian-thanksgiving-arrow-sakiya-INSTAGRAM-01Everyone chill ... the Kardashian/Jenner Thanksgiving family portrait was NOT photobombed -- turns out the random dude in camo is super tight with Kanye West.

Our Kardashian sources tell us the guy's name is Sakiya Sandifer and he's practically family. He grew up with Kanye in Chicago, and they co-authored "Thank You and You're Welcome" ... the 2009 book of sayings that inspired Kanye. He also wrote his own book, "Think Think Think and Think Again."

We're told the thoughtful guy happened to be in L.A. on biz, so Yeezy invited him for turkey dinner.

This wasn't his first rodeo with the fam -- Sakiya was in Kim and Kanye's wedding, and walked Kylie down the aisle.

11/24/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Holly Holm says she's down to be post beatdown pals with Ronda Rousey ... but as far as Christmas is concerned ... the Rowdy one shouldn't be expecting anything under the tree from the new UFC queen.

Holly was out in NYC -- still glowing with victory -- when our guy got in some questions about the post fight relationship between her and Rousey ... basically, will there be one?

1106-nicki-minaj-freedom-2-roll-TMZ-01Nicki Minaj has a chance to make amends with the disabled community if she agrees to roll alongside a wheelchair group in a Christmas parade.

Freedom 2 Roll co-founder Joe Martinez tells us his activist group reached out to Minaj's camp after seeing the Halloween video of her pretending to cast a spell on a wheelchair-bound woman.

He says the plan is for her to ride a Hovertrax board with the group in the 84th Annual Hollywood Christmas Parade. Joe says they haven't heard back from her camp, and we suspect he won't.

Remember, Nicki claimed the person in the wheelchair was a friend and she was just joking. 

Joe says, even though a lot of people are pissed about the incident ... he believes Nicki meant no harm, and wants to help her make amends with the disabled community.
