Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Birthing Dream Paid ... Where's Our Wedding Check?

12/5/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1129-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-tmz-01Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are all in when it comes to cashing in on their milestones as a couple ... and they're ready to start talking turkey for a TV wedding special.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... they're on solid ground since Dream's birth, and want to get married next year. We're told there's no date set, but one major factor in that decision will be what's best for TV.

There's nothing contractually obligating them to shoot their wedding, but for the right price ... they'd be all about it. Remember, they scored a sweet deal for their baby birth special which airs in a couple weeks.

Our sources say Rob and Blac already have a few venues in mind, but they're not locking anything down just yet. As for Dream, there's no drama in the co-parenting dept and she's helping them grow closer.

Now an agent just needs to get 'em closer to a TV deal.

Rosie O'Donnell has belatedly apologized to Melania Trump for blasting out on social media her 10-year-old son, Barron, might be autistic ... which he is not.

Rosie now says, "I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP - i was insensitive in my RT - i am sorry for the pain i caused - it was not my intent - i am truly sorry."

Melania went ballistic after a YouTuber posted a video suggesting Baron had autism, and Rosie then re-posted the video with the caption, "Barron Trump Autistic?"

TMZ broke the story, Melania hired lawyer Charles Harder, who fired off a letter to the YouTuber telling him if he didn't take the video down he'd sue. He also called out Rosie in the letter, but did not threaten her.

Our sources say Melania has been indignant at Rosie for doing what she believes was a mean-spirited act.

The YouTuber has taken the video down and apologized.

Steve Irwin Son Turns 13 ... What a Croc!

12/1/2016 7:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1201_robert_irwin_birthday_party_launch_3Steve Irwin's son, Robert, celebrated turning 13 by making his late dad proud -- cradling a baby crocodile and feeding others twice his size. 

Robert's party was at Australia Zoo with sister Bindi, mom Terri and a reptile-themed bday cake that looked like some kinda hatchling -- perhaps a T-Rex embryo? One-winged Pterodactyl?

Your guess is as good as ours, but the kid definitely partied like a croc star. 

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.

Melania Trump Threatens Suit Over False Barron 'Autism' Video And Says Rosie Made it Worse

11/28/2016 1:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128-melania-trump-rosie-odonnell-TMZ-02Melania Trump has hired a famous lawyer who is now threatening a lawsuit over a video suggesting her 10-year-old son, Barron, is autistic, and the letter calls out Rosie O'Donnell as a bully.

According to the letter, obtained by TMZ, the YouTube video falsely insinuates Barron is autistic. The letter, and our sources familiar with the situation, say Barron absolutely is not autistic.  

1128-sub-rosie-odonnel-tweet-autism-barron-trump-twitter-4Rosie tweeted out the video last week, with a caption, "Barron Trump Autistic?" The letter says, "The video allegedly seeks to 'stop the bullying' of Barron Trump. Not true ... The video did instigate further bullying by Rosie O'Donnell and others."

The video lists a number of signs it claims points to autism, including Barron clapping without slapping his hands together. Melania's attorney, Charles J. Harder, says Barron did this once -- at the end of a long day at the RNC -- but the "vast majority of the time, he claps normally."

The video shows Barron yawning and grimacing during his father's victory speech at the RNC and on election night. Melania's team says both events were late at night, and Barron was exhibiting normal behavior for a 10-year-old.

Melania is not threatening to sue Rosie, but her attorney, Harder, wants the person who posted the YouTube clip to delete it and post an apology.

Our sources say Melania is outraged and is serious about going after the person who posted the video if he doesn't take it down.

barron_trump_guard_launchBarron Trump's going to have seriously high caliber play dates from here on out ... courtesy of the Secret Service and the U.S. Coast Guard.

The 10-year-old and his friends were hanging at Mar-a-Lago over the Thanksgiving weekend, and the lawn was fully covered by several badasses with BIG guns -- by sea, ground and, we're guessing, air.

Donald Trump's Florida estate presents security challenges because of its accessibility from the water. The Secret Service has said it will deploy more than 920 agents to protect the President-elect, his kids, their spouses and his grandkids.

EXCLUSIVE

1118-laurie-hernandez-tmz-gettyIt really pays to go the distance on "Dancing with the Stars" -- just ask U.S. Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez ... who just made a TON OF CASH on her way to winning the Mirrorball Trophy.

Since Laurie is only 16 ... producers had to get a judge to sign off on the terms of her contract in order for it to be enforceable. And those documents included the entire 'Dancing' pay structure.

Laurie got a cool $125k just for being on the show -- but she got more cash the further she made it.

Surviving to Week 3 and 4 got her $10k per week.

Week 5 paid $15k.

Weeks 6 and 7 paid $20k per week.

Weeks 8 and 9 ... $30k per week.

Weeks 10 and 11 ... $50k per week.

Grand total ... $360,000!!!

Not bad for 3 months of work!  

Rocco Ritchie Weed Bust Surfaces

1122-rocco-ritchie-GETTY-02

Madonna's son, Rocco, has been arrested in London for possession of weed ... but the arrest flew under the radar for nearly 2 months. 

TMZ has confirmed, London police arrested the 16-year-old for possession of cannabis on Sept. 28th. He reportedly incurred the wrath of neighbors who were bothered by what they believed was drug use in their upscale neighborhood when the boy lives with his dad, Guy Ritchie.

According to reports, cops were called and saw Rocco and a friend sitting on a wall with a friend. They claim he tossed something in the air, but they found a small quantity of weed in his backpack and traces on his clothing.

Rocco moved away from his mom almost a year ago to live with his dad in London. She objected, claiming Guy was too permissive and it triggered a nasty court battle. He was seen back in April hanging with friends, and smoking what appeared to be a joint.

Rocco's already been sentenced. He attended a drug ed class.

EXCLUSIVE

1128-melania-trump-barron-getty-02The White House could become kinda lonely for Donald Trump, at least for a few months, because TMZ has confirmed Melania will be staying back in NYC while 10-year-old Barron completes his school year.

Sources connected with Trump tell TMZ, Melania doesn't want to disrupt Barron's life in the middle of the school year, so her home base will be Trump Tower until June at the earliest. She's extremely close to her son ... very clearly the priority in her life, and we're told she thinks it's too much to yank him away from school, friends, sports, etc. right now.

She'll be going back and forth to D.C. but she and Barron won't move there until June at the earliest, and no firm decision has been made after that.
