Jay Z Retirement Suits Me Just Fine

10/5/2016 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005_Jay-Z-in-nyc-retired-drug-dealer-hat_AKM-GSIJay Z proudly flaunted his former occupation on his head Wednesday while walking around Manhattan.

Of course, he's heard all the criticism about the fact he used to sling drugs back in Brooklyn's Marcy Projects -- so, he's obviously not sweating his haters.

Can't say Jay forgets where he came from, but you gotta acknowledge how far he's come.

His smile here screams ... this phone call just made me a few mil!

Laura Prepon & Ben Foster Flashing Engagement Rock

10/5/2016 8:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-main-laura-prepon-ben-foster-getty-01Laura Prepon is weighing in a little heavier these days after Ben Foster slipped a diamond engagement ring on her ... which made its debut in NYC.

Ben and Laura have only been together, at least publicly, since the summer, but he popped the question anyway. The "Orange Is the New Black" star strategically positioned her bling Tuesday night at the premiere of her new movie, "The Girl on the Train."

It's Laura's first engagement, and Ben's second. He was engaged to Robin Wright, but they called it off in 2015.

10/3/2016 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1003-kendall-leaving-paris-SPLASH-01Kendall Jenner boarded her own private jet and fled Paris hours after her sister Kim's armed robbery ... and it's obvious there's serious safety concerns for the whole family.

Before she got to the airport ... Kendall snuck out a side door at her Paris hotel, with police and at least one heavily armed guard standing watch. 

1003-kendall-leaving-paris-with-swipe-SPLASH-02As we reported, Kendall was out partying with Kourtney at a Paris nightclub around the time Kim was being robbed.

khloe_kardashian_lax_launchKhloe Kardashian can stand with common folks ... at airports, anyway.

Khloe was at LAX headed for fashion week in Paris and went through the dreaded TSA security check-in. Check out the pics ... the waiting game's no joke. 

You'd think she'd at least be TSA PreCheck, right?

TMZ tip: TSA PreCheck is just $85.

Breaking News

0929_jose_fernandez_funeral_launchIt wasn't just fans and teammates who came out to mourn Jose Fernandez on Wednesday -- the pregnant girlfriend he left behind also attended the funeral procession. 

24-year-old Maria Arias arrived to St. Brendan's Catholic Church in Miami -- flanked by hundreds of supporters paying their final respects to the beloved Marlins pitcher.  

Just before his fatal boat crash, Fernandez posted a picture of Arias to announce her pregnancy to the world -- with a caption that read, "I'm so glad you came into my life. I'm ready for where this journey is gonna take us together. #familyfirst."

Marlins manager Don Mattingly and owner Jeffrey Loria were also in attendance -- along with Barry Bonds and Giancarlo Stanton. 

Fernandez and 2 others died in an early morning boat crash on Sunday. The crash is currently under investigation. 


Paris Jackson Not Engaged!

9/28/2016 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-paris-jackson-michael-snoddy-arrow-swipe-akm-01Paris Jackson is not engaged to her rocker BF, Michael Snoddy, despite photos of them both wearing rings on their engagement fingers.

Paris and Snoddy, a drummer for Street Drum Corps, have only been dating a few months, so a proposal seemed unlikely.

We're told Paris gave Snoddy a promise ring, which he wears, but it's nothing close to an engagement ring. It has a Wiccan symbol on it, after all.

As for Paris' ring -- our sources says it's just a ring she wears along with others on different fingers. There was similar engagement buzz around her last bf too ... but again, it just ain't that serious.

Taylor Swift No Boys Allowed

9/28/2016 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-taylor-swift-lorde-getty-01Taylor Swift seems to be taking a break from men, and opting for ladies nights out instead.

Paps got Taylor out in NYC Tuesday leaving The Waverly Inn with model-actresses Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse -- and singer Lorde following close behind. 

The single life suits Taylor -- way less drama. Less inspiration for songs too, but it's a trade-off. 

Lindsay Lohan Pulls an Angelina ... Visits Syrian Refugees

9/27/2016 9:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927_lindsay_lohan_syrian_refugee_visit_launchTurkey has opened its borders for the Syrian refugee crisis and Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay visited a hospital near Istanbul Sunday, and shed a few tears while comforting an injured father and his kids who escaped the ISIS-torn city of Aleppo.

Something to be said for reaching out and helping others, especially when your own life's in crisis.

Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber It's a Big City ... Great for Separate Lives

9/27/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-naomi-watts-liev-schrieber-inf-akm-01If Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts look totally settled into the single life, it's because they've been at it for almost a year ... even though they just announced their breakup.

The "Ray Donovan" star looked pretty chill riding his bicycle Monday in NYC -- while Naomi, and her little dog, took a stroll in the city within a few hours of going public with the split.

Sources told TMZ the 11 year relationship was on the rocks way back in January. In fact, we were told they were already living separately in NYC, and had worked out co-parenting arrangements. Reps for Naomi and Liev denied there was trouble, and pointed to the fact they went to the Oscars together in February.

That's the thing about Hollywood appearances ... sometimes they're just that.



Ava Sambora No Average Joe Takes My Pic

9/27/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-ava-sambora-joe-simpson-splash-01Ava Sambora's got a celeb dad of her own, but she got the star treatment from another famous pop over the weekend in Malibu ... Jessica Simpson's dad, Joe.

Joe's taken up photography alongside his regular talent management 9 to 5, and Sunday combined both passions for a beach photo shoot with Ava and his client/model Jonathan Keith.

Given Joe's track record ... Ava's in good hands.

Nick Jonas Mystery Island Girl ... Just His Type

9/26/2016 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0926-nick-jonas-mystery-girl-hawaii-launch-6Nick Jonas might be done with Olivia Culpo ... but he isn't done hanging with women who look just like her.

We got these shots of Nick in Honolulu -- where he's filming "Jumanji" -- and it looks like he's found the perfect companion to help him run his lines. It's unclear exactly who she is ... yet. We know this though: Nick's got great taste!

Check out the pics -- he's loving his time on location.  

Jennifer Aniston Brad's Getting Divorced ... SHOCKFACE!!

9/23/2016 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923_jennifer_aniston_new_york_launch_3Jennifer Aniston surfaced in NYC and was bombarded with the news about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and her reaction proves ... she's a pretty good actress.

The paps got Jennifer Thursday evening and, of course, asked what she thought about her ex getting divorced. Check out the pics ... she definitely looks shocked. But maybe that's more about the attention, because there's NO WAY she didn't know what's going down.

Also, is that a hint of a smirk?
