breaking news

0720-zoey-tur-ben-shapiro-FACEBOOK-CSPAN-01Going to battle over Caitlyn Jenner could get transgender reporter Zoey Tur arrested -- a guest on Dr. Drew's show has filed a police report against Tur for getting handsy during a debate.

The heated convo went down Thursday on “Dr. Drew” ... Ben Shapiro is accusing Tur of threatening him on the show.

If you missed it ... Tur said if Shaprio didn't get his pronouns in order he'd be taken home in an ambulance, while putting her hand around the back of Shapiro's neck.

Shapiro went to LAPD on Sunday to file a criminal complaint.

Finally Face-to-Face

With Laverne Cox

7/20/2015 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0720-caitlyn-jenner-instagram-01Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox met in person Sunday night for the first time as the two posed for a photo during a special screening of Caitlyn's upcoming series, "I Am Cait."

Caitlyn cited Laverne as one of her role models in her Vanity Fair interview, while Laverne called Caitlyn "amazing" and "beautiful."  


Dr. Drew

Transgender Threatens Lawyer ...

Call Me Sir, I'll Beat Your Ass!!!

7/17/2015 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A famous transgender calmly threatened a disrespectful critic with a ride home ... in an ambulance.

It went down on Dr. Drew's HLN show Thursday, when lawyer and conservative journalist Ben Shapiro addressed transgender Zoey Tur as "Sir."

Zoey -- who was once famed CBS chopper pilot Bob Tur -- put hands on Shapiro and delivered the threat.

Of course, the topic was Caitlyn Jenner.

Johnny Gill

Caitlyn's Definitely NOT My Type

7/17/2015 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Gill has declined to join the chorus praising Caitlyn Jenner for her looks.

Our photog spotted Johnny Thursday in Bev Hills ... he started out diplomatic, but diplomacy quickly gave way to honesty ... he's not into Caitlyn, at all.

But when it comes to Kim Kardashian ...well, he needs to take a cold shower.

D. L. Hughley

She Looks Like My P.E. Teacher

7/17/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

D.L. Hughley thinks it's absurd the legacy of Arthur Ashe lives on in Caitlyn Jenner, who simply "put on a dress." 

Hughley was in NYC Thursday and was as clear as he could be ... it's a travesty that the ESPYs passed over Lauren Hill (the college basketball player who passed away this year from cancer) in favor of Caitlyn.   

The comedian didn't stop there, trashing the way Jenner looks, comparing her to a Robin Williams character.   

And D.L.'s incredulous that members of the media dare to describe Serena Williams as man-like when, as he puts it, Caitlyn looks like a P.E. teacher.  

Peter Berg

Let The Backpedaling Begin

'I Respect Caitlyn Jenner'

7/16/2015 3:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0716_peter_berg_caitlyn-jenner_tmz_gettyPeter Berg's in full damage control mode ... saying he has nothing but the "utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner" ... after posting a meme about her earlier today that many people called "transphobic." 

The "Ballers" producer/co-star just went to Instagram and wrote, "I have the utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner and I am a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere."

It's a much different tone than the one he took earlier -- when he posted an Internet meme that ripped ESPN for giving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Jenner instead of a military vet.  

The original meme Berg posted included a pic of both a double amputee military vet and Caitlyn Jenner and included the caption, "One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs." 

In his new Instagram post, Berg tries to clarify his stance -- saying, "I also believe that we don't give enough attention to our courageous returning war veterans, many of whom have sacrificed their bodies and mental health for our country and our principals- principals that include the freedom to live the life you want to live without persecution or abuse." 

So far, Caitlyn has yet to respond to any of Berg's comments.

Instagram Blackout

Over Hateful Comments

7/16/2015 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0716-caitlyn-jenner-instagram-GETTY-01There was a Caitlyn Jenner blackout on ESPY day ... and the reason is all about hate.

We noticed late Wednesday morning if you hashtagged Caitlyn Jenner "most recent" would not come up. That means there was no way to see photos or texts using the hashtag.  

The only photos you could see were from a few top posts ... all very nice and positive.  

Here's what we found out. Instagram itself blocked its users ability to view "most recent" photos and texts, because there had been a flurry of really awful comments and uploads, including:

-- 'Until you grow a vagina and bleed, you will never be a woman'

-- 'F***ing Fa***t'

-- 'How is this THING rewarded anything'

There were so many negative comments and complaints about those comments, Instagram took swift action.   

After Caitlyn took the stage, Instagram re-activated the hashtag and there was a flood of positive comments.

Nevertheless ... Caitlyn clearly has her work cut out for her. 


Peter Berg

Pissed Over Caitlyn Jenner

She Doesn't Deserve the Praise

7/16/2015 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0716-sub-peter-berg-instagram-01Peter Berg ain't happy with all the praise being heaped on Caitlyn Jenner -- and is now mocking everyone from ESPN to President Obama for honoring her ... instead of military vets. 

The "Friday Night Lights" director -- who also produces and co-stars in "Ballers" -- reposted a crass meme to Instagram following the ESPYs which compares a double amputee military vet to Caitlyn. 

Berg co-signed on the meme with a simple comment -- "Yup."  

Berg wasn't the only star to express outrage over Jenner getting the award -- Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry tweeted, "What exactly is 'COURAGE' these days?" 

He was retweeted by NFL linebacker Sio Moore

So, how is ESPN handling the criticism? Michelle Beadle summed it up this way:  

"This rage over an arbitrary award is silly. Courage and bravery come in many forms and faces. I welcome progress for everyone. #BeYou."  


Jazz Jennings

I May Meet My Transgender Hero Caitlyn at the ESPYs!

7/15/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jazz Jennings, one of the transgender community’s youngest crusaders, is a massive Caitlyn Jenner fan and she's gunning to meet her idol tonight at the ESPYs. 

Our photog caught up with the 14-year-old Tuesday in Bev Hills. She's in town promoting her new reality show “I Am Jazz,” but the highlight of the trip ... she scored a ticket to the show, where Caitlyn will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. 

Jennings was born a male but started her transition at age 3. Kid drops some serious knowledge on transgender equality.

Kobe Bryant

Huge Props to Caitlyn Jenner

... Clowns TMZ Photog

7/15/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With all the controversy over Caitlyn Jenner getting the Arthur Ashe award at the ESPYs ... she still has major support from one of the biggest athletes on the planet -- Kobe Bryant

Bryant was leaving A.O.C. restaurant in Los Angeles when we asked how he felt about Caitlyn. 

"I think people have to be comfortable being themselves," Bryant says ... "Doesn't matter what walk of life you're in man, you gotta be comfortable being you."

You gotta watch the clip ... Kobe also talks about the epic emoji battle last week -- and admits he lost the war to TWO legends. 

But the best of the clip is the end ... when our photog runs out of steam and Kobe calls him out for it -- pretty hilarious stuff. 

Kendall & Caitlyn Jenner

This Is How We Roll

Sushi Date In Bev Hills

7/12/2015 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0712-kendall-jenner-caitlyn-jenner-lunch-SPLASH-01A Beverly Hills sushi restaurant turned into a catwalk this weekend -- when Kendall and Caitlyn Jenner rolled through for a quick lunch date. 

The two met up at Sugarfish ... where Kendall and her friend Hailey Baldwin showed up in workout gear after a gym session. 

But Caitlyn was WORKIN' IT -- showin' off the gams in a pencil skirt while the paparazzi snapped away. 

Overall, not a bad look for Caitlyn ... but word of advice from the gals in the office -- embrace the spray tan! 

Caitlyn Jenner

Yo, Brooklyn ...

I've Got Condoms For Ya

7/11/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Caitlyn Jenner went hand-to-hand in the 'hood during a Pride event -- handing out condoms to her fans.

It's pretty impressive ... in the middle of NYC's Pride weekend a couple of weeks ago -- when Caitlyn was the toast of the town -- she took a low-key trip to a shady part of Brooklyn to volunteer with the TransLatina Coalition.

As you might expect ... she was swarmed by fans wanting pics, but we're told she politely turned them down, and it was clear she wasn't there for publicity -- just to work for the community.

So, instead of selfies ... she handed out condoms and flyers for community events addressing the prevention of HIV.

We're guessing you'll see some of this play out when “I Am Cait” premieres later this month.

Brody Jenner

I’d Totally Set Caitlyn Up

... With Chicks

7/8/2015 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brody Jenner doesn’t think Caitlyn needs any help in the hook-up department, but he’s ready to help her find the right woman.

Caitlyn’s son hit up “Sway in the Morning” to promote his new reality series “Sex With Brody” and the topic quickly turned to sex and Caitlyn. Brody said, "Caitlyn likes women ... so it wouldn’t be too hard to go find a chick for Caitlyn." 

It's interesting because Caitlyn hasn't ever discussed her sexual preference. Bruce told Diane Sawyer he hadn't thought about it at all ... because relationships were the last thing on his mind at that time.

We don't know if Brody's presuming, or if he's actually had the convo with Caitlyn.

Like we said ... interesting.
