Kanye West isn't wasting any time getting back to work ... heading into the office just a day after welcoming his new baby girl.

West was spotted outside his Calabasas studio Tuesday -- and while he stayed quiet -- he still cracked a big smile when photogs congratulated him on the birth.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim and Kanye were in the hospital room when their surrogate gave birth to a 7 lbs 6 oz girl at Cedars-Sinai early Monday morning. Kim was the first to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby, and Kanye held her shortly after.

Glenn Frey Widow Sues Hospital You Killed My Husband

1/16/2018 2:35 PM PST

Glenn Frey was left sick and suffering during his dying days because of the poor treatment at a hospital ... according to a new suit filed by his widow.

Cindy Frey alleges the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Steven Itzkowitz failed to properly render medical care to her husband -- the co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles -- the last couple months of his life ... until he died in January 2016.

Cindy claims the medical workers were negligent in treating Frey's ulcerative colitis, failed to properly assess respiratory issues, failed to treat infection, failed to consider side effects of medications and didn't properly advise him of the risks to his health and life.

According to the docs, first reported by the NY Post ... Frey was "rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled, suffered injuries, pain, mental anguish ... and was permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death."

Cindy's asking for damages for wrongful death.

Kim Kardashian Front and Center in Delivery Room For Birth of Daughter

1/16/2018 10:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian was in the hospital delivery room when her surrogate gave birth ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the birth tell us, Kim was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. when the surrogate was in labor and, when the baby was born, she was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby. We're told it was the family's trusted Dr. Paul Crane, who delivered the baby.

We're told Kanye was in the delivery room, but behind a curtain. He came out after the baby was born and held his daughter for the first time.

Kris Jenner and Kim's sisters were also at the hospital, but they were not in the delivery room.

We're told the surrogate was able to have some contact with the baby after the delivery, but was almost immediately under the care of Kim and Kanye.

The baby was born without complications. She weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz. Still no word on the baby's name.

TMZ was first to post the story after Kim announced on her app that the surrogate gave birth at 12:47 AM Monday.

Danielle Bregoli Disses 'Old Hoe' Iggy Azalea ... In 'Hi Bich' Remix

1/16/2018 1:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is saying "Hi Bich" to Iggy Azalea -- calling her an "old hoe" that's "washed."

The "Cash Me Outside" girl slams Iggy in a remix of her hit song, now featuring YBN Nahmir, Rich the Kid and Asian Doll -- a snippet of which has been obtained by TMZ.

In one of Danielle's verses, she goes in on Iggy by saying ... "Bitch don't compare me to Iggy // That old hoe is washed, And I'm lit // Wouldn't pay her to wash up my whip." 

It sounds like Bhad Bhabie -- Danielle's rap persona -- has been likened to the Aussie MC ... and BB doesn't like it. The only similarity, really, is that they're both white female rappers.

Your move, Iggy. 

Enrique & Anna Meet Our Twins!!! Answer Key Not Included

1/16/2018 10:07 AM PST

Enrique Iglesias is giving the world a first glance at one of the twins he and Anna Kournikova kept totally undercover during her pregnancy.

There's still some secrecy -- Enrique captioned the pic, "My Sunshine" ... so, it's unclear if the kid in the pic is Nicholas or Lucy. TMZ broke the story ... Anna and Enrique became first-time parents when she gave birth back in December. 

Judging by the baby's clothing ... we're gonna guess this is Nicholas. Hell, we've got a 50-50 shot!

10:55 AM PT -- Ok, now we're more confused. Anna just posted her own shot with one of the twins, and also captioned it, "My Sunshine."

Now, we're guessing Anna's holding the boy, Nicholas -- while Enrique's got the girl, Lucy. We're sure of it! Or, at least 50-50. 

Seal Cops Investigate Sexual Battery Allegedly Groped & Forcefully Kissed Actress

1/16/2018 4:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Seal is under criminal investigation for sexual battery, just one week after he publicly encouraged sexual abuse victims to come forward ... but the singer denies any wrongdoing.

Actress Tracey Birdsall tells us she and Seal were neighbors in Los Angeles in the fall of 2016. She says the two developed a close friendship -- and only that -- until an incident at Seal's home. Tracey says she was in Seal's kitchen to retrieve a salad spinner she'd lent him when all of a sudden, he lunged at her.

Tracey tells us Seal forced himself on her, attempting to kiss her. She says she shouted, "What are you doing?!" and the singer replied, "I'm kissing you!"

Birdsall claims Seal then began to belittle her for what she was wearing (a tank top and shorts) -- insinuating she was asking for it -- and he began to grope her breasts. She says she demanded he stop.

Tracey tells us Seal then invited her to sit on the couch next to him ... she says she was in shock and complied. Birdsall claims Seal once again began to make fun of what she was wearing and groped her again. Tracey says she left shortly after that and did not have contact with Seal again.

Birdsall says it wasn't until she saw Seal's comments about Oprah and Harvey Weinstein -- where he encouraged women to share their own stories of sexual misconduct -- that she decided to report it to the cops. 

A source with the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. confirms a report was taken Saturday for sexual battery ... the incident is under investigation.

A rep for Seal tells us, "Seal vehemently denies the recent allegations made against him by a former neighbor for alleged misconduct more than a year ago. He intends to vigorously defend himself against these false allegations."

Rod Stewart On Cranberries Singer's Death ... We're All Dropping Like Flies!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Rod Stewart's reaction to Dolores O'Riordan's death might not be the most sensitive, but it's definitely real ... and kinda dark.

Rod was leaving Il Piccolino Monday night in WeHo when we asked the British rocker if he knew The Cranberries singer who died suddenly in London. Rod said he didn't know Dolores personally, but he made it clear her passing, at only 46, has him pondering his own mortality.

On a lighter note, the rock legend thinks President Trump made a smart decision recently ... 'cause the the U.K. does NOT think he's sexy.

Anthony Anderson Mocks Tyrese At NAACP Image Awards

1/16/2018 6:39 AM PST

Anthony Anderson was hilarious at the NAACP Image Awards Monday night, taking unmerciful jabs at Tyrese for his crying fits during his recent custody battle.

Anderson started out solemn ... making it seem like he had sympathy for Tyrese, and then he shifted gears and unleashed some wicked jokes.

The "Black-ish" star, who MC'd the event, honed in on Tyrese's bogus claim Will and Jada Smith gave him millions of dollars to keep him afloat. Anderson says Tyrese didn't need the cash 'cause he's loaded. 

Elvis Presley Are You Thirsty Tonight ... Historic Dixie Cup For Sale

1/16/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Someone's selling a crusty paper cup that might've once touched Elvis Presley's lips and there are people already willing to drop over $150 for it.

The cup's supposedly from The King's first concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1956. Elvis was only 21 at the time and played his first show there in April of that year. The cup was supposedly taken from him at his hotel by a woman named June who then kept it in a box with his autographed picture for decades.

If you're wondering whether it's authentic or not ... the nearly 62-year-old cup comes with a letter of authenticity and notebook full of supporting "research" ... which includes a few pictures of Elvis WITH the cup.

It's being sold on eBay and, as of late Monday, the high bid was $157. The seller is optimistic they'll get $1,000 for it though.

Breaking News

3:10 PM PT -- Friends of Dolores tell TMZ ... she had been "dreadfully depressed" in recent weeks, and was also suffering with a lot of back pain.

11:08 AM PT -- Dolores tried taking her life by OD'ing back in 2013, saying she had suffered from depression and ultimately a mental breakdown. She was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Dolores said she believed some of her emotional problems emanated from being abused as a child.

The Cranberries lead singer, Dolores O'Riordan, died Monday in London.

Dolores was reportedly in London for a recording session. A rep for the band would only say she died "suddenly." The rep offered no further details.

The Irish band struck it big in the '90s ... when Dolores took over for their previous lead singer. Their songs "Zombie" and "Linger" were huge international hits. 

Dolores released 2 solo albums while the Cranberries were on hiatus. They got back together in 2009, and had planned a tour last year, but ended up canceling when Dolores had back pain.

She split from her husband of 20 years in 2014, and survived by 3 children. Dolores was 46.

Chris Martin & Dakota Johnson Our Love Life's a Beach!!! And Kenny G Agrees

1/15/2018 10:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are going public -- the new couple strolled on the beach over the weekend, packed on some PDA and, for good measure ... hung out with Kenny G.

Chris and Dakota have been dating for a few months, but previously took great measures to keep it private. That all changed Sunday in Malibu ... where the "Fifty Shades of Grey" star and Chris looked inseparable. 

They had some unexpected company on the beach when Kenny G popped up, sadly without his saxophone. So, no Coldplay-Kenny G collab.

That Dakota's a lucky woman.
