Katie Holmes has left NYC and moved to Black Beverly ... aka Calabasas, CA.
Our real estate sources tell us ... Katie just plunked down $3,795,000 on a 6,000 square foot home in The Oaks ... the fancy area where Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian live. Other residents include Katherine Jackson and her brood, Toni Braxton, Romeo, Mitch Richmond. Tyga recently moved out.
It was a super secret deal ... with a confidentiality agreement that socked anyone who violated it with a $1 million penalty.
Katie and Suri are already in the home. We're told Katie made the move for 2 reasons -- she wants back in Hollywood for her career, and she thinks Calabasas is a better place than NYC to raise Suri.
The cul-de-sac where she lives is populated by lots of kids around her 8-year-old daughter's age.
Weeks before escrow closed, Suri and her bodyguard went to a San Fernando Valley rescue shelter and picked out a chihuahua she named Maple, but they didn't pick it up because they were going to be gone until last week, when they moved in. We don't know if they picked up the pooch.

Lior says he worked for Brooke from December, 2012 to March, 2013 ... during that time she was in and out of rehab.

Kim Kardashian assumed auntie duties in Calabasas Tuesday ... taking her nephew Mason Disick to the movies.
Kim didn't have a lot to say but Mason did. He told our photog he went to see "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in The Commons. He also has a fav -- Donatello.
We're told Kim took Mason out for the afternoon so he didn't go stir crazy in the Montage hotel in Bev Hills, where mommy Kourtney, Daddy Scott and sister Penelope are staying because they claim the house they bought from Keyshawn Johnson is full of dangerous black mold.
Transgender People Should Not Get Choice of Restrooms
8/19/2014 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Duggar is convinced ... child predators are aiming to use the cover of being a transgender to hurt children ... and she's determined to stop them in their tracks.
The "19 Kids and Counting" star is on the warpath against a proposed Arkansas law that would allow transgender people to use either the men's or women's bathroom -- whichever they feel suits them best.
Duggar thinks convicted male child molesters will have a field day if the law passes ... simply dressing up like a woman and perving out in girls restrooms.
She doesn't want her 9 girls subjected to men leering at them in their private space -- so she's voiced a robocall to AR voters urging them to vote no ... and it's fascinating.
to Malibu Schools:
Take Out Your Caulk!
8/19/2014 7:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So Cindy went to the Malibu Library this morning ... where she whipped out her own solution to the caulk controversy for FOX 11 in L.A.
Bonus! Look out for a special cameo from fellow anti-caulk enthusiast Ricky Schroder.
7 Kids Go Hollywood!
Making BANK Off Dad's Biopic
8/16/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-NFL great Kurt Warner's set to rake in almost a million dollars for a movie about his life, and he's sharing the wealth by writing his SEVEN kids into the deal.
FOX bought the movie rights to Kurt's biography "All Things Possible" a year ago, but since 5 of his kids are under age -- a minors contract has to be filed with the courts. Turns out dear ol' dad was very generous.
TMZ Sports obtained a copy of the contracts for Jada (13), Kade (15), Elijah (10), and twins Sienna and Sierra (8) -- and according to the docs ... they will split 25% of all salaries the family earns. Kurt and his wife Brenda's 25-year-old son Zachary, who suffered brain damage as a child ... also gets a 5% cut.
The other 70% will be split between Kurt, Brenda, and their adult daughter Jesse.
So far the family's only earned $135K ... a down payment for the movie rights. If FOX goes forward, and shoots the movie they'll get another $715K. The floodgates really open if the movie is a box office hit -- they'll get a bunch of bonuses, potentially as high as $200K.
Kurt deserves way more than golf balls or a tie next Father's Day.

1:45 PM PT -- Sherrie is now being held without bail, and the D.A's Office says she'll be behind bars for several months. We're told she failed to appear for a prior family court case, so a judge remanded her bail until her first hearing in that case ... which is November 4th.
Smile, Sherrie Daly ... you've just been tossed behind bars!!!
Golfer John Daly's ex-wife was jailed Friday in Memphis, TN because their teenage son missed too much school without an excuse.
The Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports the boy missed more than 15 days, without an excuse, during two separate periods: August 2012 - February 2013 and August 2013 - February 2014.
Daly was booked on multiple charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor. She will go before a judge on Monday and could get sentenced to almost a year behind bars.
A spokesperson for the Shelby County DA tells TMZ Sports, "[Daly is] the poster child for truancy because of her notoriety."

Attempt to Keep Kids in U.S. FAILS
Freaks Out In Court
8/13/2014 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kelly Rutherford burst into tears and freaked out after a judge shut down her last ditch effort to keep her kids in the U.S.
Rutherford claimed another judge had illegally awarded custody of her 2 kids to her ex-husband, Daniel Giersch, who lives in France. Rutherford claims the judge effectively deported the kids.
So she was in federal court Wednesday ... asking a judge to step in, but the federal judge said he didn't have the power. Outside the courtroom, Rutherford broke down, saying "My own country won't save my children and I pay taxes!"
The judge gave Rutherford a ray of hope, saying although he didn't have jurisdiction over custody, he would set up a conference call Friday with him, Rutherford and Giersch's lawyer ... to figure out a way for Giersch -- who has immigration issues -- to come back to the U.S. to live.
The clock is ticking ... if the judge's Hail Mary doesn't work ... the kids go to France August 19.

8/13/2014 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Yes, that's Madonna's daughter Lourdes ... and yes, that's her takin' a drag off something that doesn't seem very tobacco-ish.
The bikini-clad 17-year-old is vacationing in the South of France this week -- sans parents, at least as far as we can see -- and partaking in a little puff puff with friends in between jumps in the Mediterranean.
They must be having a pretty good time, cause that cig's getting smaller and smaller.
