Caitlyn Jenner Gender Change I Still Sign My Name Bruce

9/16/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0916-caitlyn-jenner-getty-01TMZ has now obtained the official documents Caitlyn Jenner filed to change her name and gender for legal purposes. 

In the docs, she says she wants a judge to sign off on her new name ... Caitlyn Marie Jenner.

She also checks the box to change her gender from male to female. It's interesting ... she signed the documents "Bruce Jenner," presumably because that's her recognized legal name.


TMZ broke the story ... Caitlyn says in her legal docs she wants medical and other info sealed from the public out of fear for her safety. She says in a declaration, "Although public support for my transition has been overwhelmingly supportive, I am also receiving unwelcome negative attention from private citizens, including threats of bodily harm."

Caitlyn attached a physician's declaration to the documents ... but they were not released pending a decision on sealing them.

Mike Huckabee is passing the blame for that whole Kim Davis-"Eye of the Tiger" fiasco, and his point is clear ... DON'T SUE ME! 

We spoke to the presidential hopeful about last week's Davis rally where the Survivor hit blared over her entrance. As we reported, the band was pissed and threatened legal action since no one asked for permission.

Sounds like Huckabee's aware of the risk, because you gotta see his reaction when we asked who picked out the song.

As for Davis returning to work at the county clerk's office -- Huckabee told us if he thinks she'll stand her ground on gay marriage, or find middle ground.

9/14/2015 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0914-caitlyn-jenner-GETTY-01More change for Caitlyn Jenner -- her controversial opinion on same sex marriage has evolved ... dramatically.

Jenner wrote on her blog ... "After hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love."

Caitlyn most likely heard from her gay friends when her appearance on "Ellen" aired last week. On the show, she admitted she was a traditionalist and had opposed gay marriage ... but was now just "ok with it." It was stunning, considering her own crusade for acceptance.

The backlash was immediate, and, apparently, impactful.

0911-chris-brown-black-gay-pride-TMZ-01Chris Brown and the folks who accused him of bailing on ATL Black Gay Pride Weekend have settled their differences ... and all it took was CB forking over $12,500.

We're told the talent agency that booked the gig for Chris believed the event promoters had breached the contract -- by using the wrong pic of Chris on posters -- so they never told him about the deal, which is why he never showed

But both sides just want to squash the mix-up -- so we're told Chris' agency returned the $12,500 deposit. However, the Pride promoters say they haven't received the dough yet, and they'll sue if they don't get it soon.

Kim Davis Violence in Relationship with Baby Daddy

9/9/2015 10:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-kim-davis-getty-01Kim Davis may have a fundamental problem with marriage between same-sex couples, but she's certainly not saying all relationships between men and women are good, because she's had an incident violent enough that the courts got involved.

The now-famous county clerk had 2 children out of wedlock with Thomas McIntyre. According to court docs obtained by TMZ, on May 14, 1996, McIntyre went to Davis' home to visit the kids. He saw a bouquet of flowers on her kitchen table, and he got jealous.

According to the docs, McIntyre called Davis a "whore," and she slapped him and ordered him to leave. He challenged her to hit him again, and she said she didn't want to strike him and then picked up the phone to call the cops. She says he then ripped the phone cord out of the wall.

0909-kim-davis-sub-doc-01Davis says they began arguing and she slapped him again after he refused to leave the house.

When he finally left he said, "I see you in jail," and she responded, "No, in jail's where you'll be."

Davis went to court and got a restraining order, prohibiting McIntyre from coming within 1,000 feet of her and the kids.

P.S. She married McIntyre in 2007, but divorced him a year later.

Exclusive Details

0908-chris-brown-atlanta-gay-pride-TMZ-01Chris Brown claims he never cancelled a show during ATL Black Gay Pride Weekend ... because he was never scheduled to perform in the first place, but the event promoter claims otherwise.

CB's reps tell TMZ ... Brown was in Atlanta for his "One Hell of a Nite" tour last weekend ... in a totally different venue from the Pride event, which was organized by Traxx Girls, a lesbian owned and operated entertainment company.

Traxx claims it paid Brown to perform for the 4,000 women at the Georgia Freight Depot -- and when he no-showed ... Fetty Wap stepped in at the last minute. 

Brown's people say the event promoter's story is completely fabricated ... claiming Traxx just slapped Breezy's name on posters and flyers to drum up interest in the show, and now it's just trying to save face with customers. 

Traxx reps won't say how much cash they paid Brown ... but they are considering legal action to recover the money.

exclusive mug shot

Kim Davis
, the county clerk who refused to sign same sex marriage licenses in the name of God, is feeling the wrath of the judicial system ... because she's in jail for contempt of court. 

Federal Judge David L. Bunning ruled Thursday Davis was breaking the law by refusing to sign off on same sex marriage certificates simply because it went against her religious beliefs.

Davis, a devout Apostolic Christian, believes marriage should be between one man and one woman. She stopped giving out same sex marriage licenses in her county even after it became legal in Kentucky.

Judge Bunning said Davis' explanation for disobeying the law was "simply insufficient."

Davis has to stay in jail until she decides to obey the law.
