Supreme Court

Same-Sex Marriage Has Our Blessing

6/26/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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

EXCLUSIVE

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 ...

Justin Bieber & Ruby Rose

Mirror Has Two Faces ...

Or Maybe Just One

6/20/2015 4:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0620_ruby_justin_bieber_instagramRuby Rose, meet ... Ruby Rose, or maybe it's Justin Bieber. Everyone has wanted to see this pic, to either end or fuel speculation that they may be the same person.

The two met up at Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas ... Ruby posted it on instagram.

The big question, who attracts more chicks?

Kendall Jenner

Still Calling Caitlyn ...'He'

6/19/2015 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendall Jenner made 3 interesting choices -- grammatically speaking -- when it comes to talking about her dad, Caitlyn Jenner ... and it raises a complicated issue.

Kendall was speaking to an E! reporter in NYC about Caitlyn's docuseries, and said ... "I think that he can honestly do so much good with everything and I'm excited for it. If he's excited, I'm excited for him."

Based on the clip, it's hard to tell if Kendall meant to use female pronouns and slipped up (no biggie, everyone's done it) -- or if she's just continuing to use male pronouns for her father. 

Remember ... Caitlyn told the kids, "You can call me dad." So, is it ... 'She's my dad' or ... 'He's my dad?"

Head-scratcher.

'Big Brother'

Transgender Houseguest

I'm Gonna Be Another Caitlyn!

6/16/2015 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0616-audrey-middleton-big-brother-cbs-01Audrey Middleton, who will be one of the houseguests on the upcoming "Big Brother," was not always Audrey ... she was born Adam.

TMZ has learned Audrey will become the first transgender on the U.S. version of the show, and she plans to use the program as a showcase ... similar to what Caitlyn Jenner has been doing.

Audrey grew up in a small Georgia town as a boy, and life was far from easy. We're told when she transitioned several years ago, her family had a hard time accepting it, but they're now fully supportive and on board.

The 25-year-old was inspired by Caitlyn Jenner's story, but she's also just a big fan of "Big Brother."

It's a dicey move for producers, given the show has had its share of racist and homophobic houseguests. The show runs a livestream 24/7 and things happen. But we're told it will all become a teaching moment and Audrey is pumped.

It's Written All Over My Face

... This Doctor's Amazing

6/10/2015 7:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610-caitlyn-jenner-instagram-01Caitlyn Jenner's flaunting the handiwork of her plastic surgeons -- posing with one of the docs who was crucial to her transformation.   

Caitlyn and Dr. Harrison Lee held up the now famous Vanity Fair cover shot for the pic. As Caitlyn said in the VF article ... she underwent 10 hours of surgery in Beverly Hills to feminize her face. 

She autographed the mag for Dr. Lee -- saying, "Great job. Thank you so much."

It's the first time we've seen Caitlyn's signature. Go ahead ... analyze her personality. 

Joy Behar

Caitlyn Jenner's the Same

... Still Boring

6/10/2015 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Can't say Joy Behar isn't fair -- she's treating Caitlyn Jenner the same as she would anyone else, and sometimes that means giving her a good jabbing ... same as everyone else.  

We asked Joy if she thought Caitlyn would make a good co-host for "The View" -- seeing as how the show could use a shot in the arm. Plus, as a former co-host ... Joy should know what it takes.  

Check out her answer -- Caitlyn's transition hasn't changed one personality trait which is NOT a great fit for TV hosts ... according to Joy, anyway. 

Ahhh, equality -- kinda stings sometimes. 

Tamar Braxton

I'm Out of L.A.

Pride Fest

6/9/2015 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0609-tamar-braxton-la-pride-TMZ-01Tamar Braxton has mysteriously gone MIA on L.A. Pride Festival organizers ... just days before she was supposed to perform at the event.

LA Pride Executive Producer Jeff Consoletti tells TMZ … the youngest Braxton sister was one of the first confirmed acts for the 45th anniversary bash, but has recently gone radio silent.

Consoletti says they had no choice but to pull the plug on Tamar's performance ... so they could book a backup and move the production forward. He says when they asked Tamar for an explanation ... they got the cold shoulder again.

We reached out to Tamar also ... same result.

Organizers say they’re not going to take legal action since Tamar never collected her paycheck, but the whole thing is weird considering she’s got new music and a TV show to plug. 

Pop artist Ivy Levan and rapper Angel Haze are filling in, we're told.
