Michael Sam

Frustration In Locker Room

'He's Not My Favorite Teammate'

7/4/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_Michael-Sam_MOntreal-Alouette-logoMichael Sam's Montreal Alouettes teammates are sick and tired of the drama surrounding the defensive end ... with one player telling TMZ Sports, "He's not my favorite teammate right now."

Multiple sources tell us ... the players are viewing Sam as a "distraction" -- but nobody wants to say it out loud because they're afraid of a possible public backlash for criticizing him.  

But inside the Alouttes organization ... frustration is building -- especially with Sam recently leaving the team for 2 weeks on mysterious personal business

We're told by multiple sources that people WANT to like Sam -- and really do want to see him succeed -- but feel he's still not 100% focused on football. 

"He needs to leave his personal life off the field and just play football like he really wants it," one player tells us. 

"Hopefully he can turn it around and commit to the game because he really does have potential."

0630-caitlyn-jenner-splash-inf-02Caitlyn Jenner stepped out with new best friend Diane Sawyer Monday night in NYC, and she has the paparazzi eating out of the palm of her hand.

It's pretty incredible ... the flurry of questions Bruce Jenner faced over the last few years are all gone ... and now it's all glam and respect as the paps fought to get an over-the-shoulder shot.

Caitlyn and Diane did not know each other before their interview, but we're told they hit it off and created a warm friendship.

0628-caitlyn-jenner-dream-phd-event-pride-INSTAGRAM-01Caitlyn Jenner let her hair down during NYC's Pride event Sunday at the Dream Hotel ... moments after the annual Gay Pride Parade wrapped.

Caitlyn arrived with a few friends and cameras in tow, apparently for her reality show, "I Am Cait." 

She arrived in time for transgender actress Candis Cayne's performance.

They danced, and then Candis toasted Caitlyn ... telling the audience she was honored to know Caitlyn. She then dedicated the song, "Im Every Woman" -- to Cait, who cheered her on.  

Wave that rainbow flag, girl!

Supreme Court

Same-Sex Marriage Has Our Blessing

breaking news

0625-men-holding-hands-court-getty-01
The United States Supreme Court just ruled by the narrowest of margins that gays have a constitutional right to tie the knot.

It's a landmark ruling that has profound consequences. Fourteen states currently ban gay marriages, but as of today the ban is lifted and all states are now REQUIRED to issue marriage licenses, irrespective of sex.

For all you legal eagles, the decision was 5-4, and Justice Anthony Kennedy again proved he's the most powerful man on the Court, not only providing the swing vote but writing the majority opinion.

The court said the gay marriage ban served to "disrespect and subordinate them." The justices added the ban was a "grave and continuing harm."

President Barack Obama applauded the ruling, tweeting, "Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else #LoveWins."

Hillary Clinton quickly weighed in, tweeting, "Proud to celebrate a historic victory for marriage equality -- & the courage and determination of LGBT Americans who made it possible."

Ruby Rose

No One Wants My Famous Piano

6/26/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625-sbs-arrow-ruby-rose-instagram-02Ruby Rose is as hot as anyone these days, but apparently it doesn't translate when she tries selling stuff, even when the stuff's as famous as her.

The "Orange Is the New Black" star put her hand painted, white, custom 1929 Mason and Hamlin baby grand piano up on eBay with a "Buy It Now" price of $11,900. We're told Rose and her fiancée are moving into a new place and don't have the room for it.

The piano gained fame after Rose posted a pic of it adorned with plates featuring Bieber's mug.

But this piano is famous on its own. It was previously owned by legendary songwriter Linda Perry and signed by the likes of Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Courtney Love, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Pink and Miley Cyrus. 

Here's the harsh reality. So far ... not a single bid.   

Maybe she should just sell the seat.

Caitlyn Jenner

Kids Spoil Her With Father’s Day Gifts

6/23/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0620-caitlyn-jenner-vf-02

Caitlyn Jenner didn’t unwrap any ties this Father’s Day … she finally got the gifts she’s always wanted – dresses and a day spent as a woman of leisure.

As we previously reported, several of Caitlyn’s kids joined her at her Malibu pad on Sunday, and they didn't come empty-handed.

We’re told the Kardashian girls went all out gifting her with dresses, shoes and accessories for her new wardrobe. Her elder sons Brandon and Burt did yard work so that Caitlyn wouldn’t have to get her manicured hands dirty.

It’s a breaking of tradition for Caitlyn and her kids, who in years past always resorted to sports-related Father’s Day gifts or the token tie.

We're told Caitlyn felt it was the best Father's Day ever.

Ruby Rose

Oysters with Karrueche ...

But Really Into Scent of a Bieber

6/23/2015 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ruby Rose and Karrueche Tran hooked up -- for dinner -- but Ruby's still thinking about her weekend encounter with Justin Bieber ... where he passed her smell test with flying colors.

Ruby and Karrueche (hypothetical couple name: Rurrueche?) hit up E.P. & L.P. restaurant Monday night in L.A. -- no coincidence, we're thinking, since KT recently tweeted about her crush on the "Orange Is the New Black" star. 

But on the way in, Ruby talked about her Bieber encounter in Vegas ... confessing, he smells great and has something she desperately wants for herself. 

As for Rurrueche ... the ladies told us all about their aphrodisiac meal, and addressed the white elephant -- what Rose's fiancée of just a few months thinks about random men and women (no offense, Karrueche) lusting for her.

Here's My Father's Day Crew

6/22/2015 10:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0622-caitlyn-jenner-family-fathers-day-INSTAGRAM-01Caitlyn Jenner had almost a full crew of kids dune buggying all over Malibu for Father's Day, and the pic is kind of awesome.

Kim and Kanye were front and center with North West, along with Khloe, Kendall, Brandon and his wife, and Burt and his girlfriend, Valerie

We're told Kourtney had the flu and Brody was out of town on a DJ gig. 

As we reported, Caitlyn threw the party and it's one of the few times her kids from different marriages showed up. 

It's the first time we've seen Caitlyn out in a dress. She looks great, but maybe a tad overdressed for off-roading in a Polaris Buggy.

My First

Father's Day!!!

6/21/2015 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-caitlyn-jenner-fathers-day-TMZ-Instagram-03Caitlyn Jenner celebrated her first Father's Day with her children, and there's a lot more significance than you think.

Caitlyn's kids from all 3 ex-wives came together for the shindig at her Malibu house. Of course, it's the first time she's celebrated the holiday as a woman. Caitlyn has told her kids she will always be their dad.

But there's more. Caitlyn never celebrated Father's Day with all her kids. Kris organized Father's Day events, but the boys and Cassandra rarely went.   

Now that there are no wives to organize Father's Day parties, Caitlyn -- like many single dads -- is left to her own devices. We're told Sunday's festivities were initiated by Caitlyn. 

Interesting some of the Caitlyn's sons are celebrating with her daughters ... they don't really socialize together.

Whatever ... hopefully a good time was had by all.

Kendall to Caitlyn

Happy Father's Day

You're Still the Same Soul

6/21/2015 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621-kendal-jenner-dad-bruce-caitlyn-INSTAGRAM-01Kendall Jenner just posted a pretty touching Father's Day shout out to Caitlyn, telling her she's always been the same person ... her hero.

Kendall says, "My whole life this soul was my daddy and just because your appearance is different now doesn't mean you were any less of a father to me my entire life."  

She ended by saying, "Happy Father's Day to the person who raised me, and taught me everything I know. My hero."

Out of the mouth of babes ...
