Kim Kardashian Spontaneous Yeezys Plug ... Totally Set Up

2/11/2015 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian Yeezy PicClever girl Kim Kardashian would love us to believe she's no poser -- but the pic she posted of herself in front of Kanye West's new shoe display was the exact opposite of casual and impromptu.

What Kim's Instagram pic outside the Adidas store in SoHo Tuesday failed to show was her security guard shooing away fans ... so she could get the perfect "random" shot to shill her hubby's new line of Yeezy kicks. 

Not sure why she didn't use the pic with the woman and her Marshalls bag ... but we'll respect her decision ... as a true artist.

Gotta stand by your man's brand.

Bruce Jenner Cops Just Scored Critical Crash Video

2/11/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210_bruce_jenner_accident_scene_SPLASH_2A video has surfaced of the fatal car accident involving Bruce Jenner -- a video taken seconds after impact -- and we've learned it could become a critical piece of evidence for law enforcement investigating the accident. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. just obtained the video, which shows the immediate aftermath of the crash. Most important, it shows people who witnessed the chain of events that led to the Lexus Bruce hit veering into oncoming traffic and killing the driver.

We're told Sheriff's detectives are on the hunt for the people in the video because, among other things, they might have seen the Prius that was hit by the Lexus. Cops want to know if the Prius was stopped behind a long line of cars waiting for the light to turn green, or whether it illegally stopped for some other purpose.  

We're told the actions of the Prius and Lexus drivers could have a significant impact on Bruce's culpability for the fatal crash.   

And we're told the video shows Bruce was NOT being chased by paparazzi ... something Jenner family sources told us the day of the crash.

Bruce Jenner 'Black Boxes' Could Hold Key to Fatal Crash

2/10/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_cars_in_jenner_accident_splash_tmz

Bruce Jenner's fate could be determined in part by a metal box embedded in the twisted metal that was left on Pacific Coast Highway ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is in possession of all 4 vehicles and the trailer that was attached to Bruce's Escalade. We're told Bruce's Escalade has a sophisticated "Black Box" that contains critical data ... including speed and braking info. The other 3 vehicles have similar data.

We're told the boxes gauge what the driver was doing for the 5 seconds before impact. In one-second intervals, the boxes show speed, braking, the position of the accelerator, etc.  

We're told accident reconstruction experts can use the data from all 4 vehicles and determine the speed and distance between each of them. That could help determine with some precision if Jenner was following too closely behind the Lexus.

Many of the "Black Boxes" are activated by the airbag, but we're told even if the airbag does not deploy the information is still available. 

As we reported, once the investigation is complete the Sheriff's Dept. will send the file over to the L.A. County D.A. for review -- which is SOP when someone dies in a car crash. If Bruce was following too closely, prosecutors could charge him with vehicular manslaughter, however we're told such prosecutions -- when the offense is following too closely -- are "very rare."

Bruce Jenner Lawyers Up D.A. Will Review Fatal Crash

2/9/2015 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-bruce-jenner-attorney-Coleman-Rayner-04Bruce Jenner has lawyered up in the wake of Saturday's fatal car crash, in an investigation that will make its way to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office ... TMZ has learned.

Bruce was leaving the West Hollywood law offices of Blair Berk, a top criminal defense lawyer who has repped an untold number of celebs.

We've learned once the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. finishes its investigation, they will send the case to the L.A. County D.A. for review. A law enforcement source says it's SOP to refer such a case to prosecutors when a driver breaks the law and someone dies.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they now believe Bruce was not texting and driving. But cops think Bruce was following too closely which is a traffic violation, and such a violation that results in the death of another motorist could theoretically be grounds for misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

We found a Northern California case in which a driver who was following too closely was prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter, so it is possible. An official from a L.A. prosecutor's office tells TMZ ... it's "very rare" to charge a driver with vehicular manslaughter when the traffic offense is following too closely. 

Bruce Jenner Prius May Have Caused Fatal Crash

2/8/2015 5:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0207-main-sbs-bruce-jenner-splash-wm-01Bruce Jenner may not be the driver who caused a woman to die on PCH Saturday ... because law enforcement tells TMZ they now believe the Prius that led the pack made a sudden stop, causing the Lexus to crash into it ... BEFORE Bruce hit the Lexus.   

As TMZ first reported ... Sheriff's deputies were suspicious of the story the Prius driver told. She said she was stopped at a red light, but she was 300 feet from the light. When cops asked her if there was a line of cars in front of her she was vague. Deputies think she might have been making an illegal U-turn.

So the current scenario is this ... the Prius came to a sudden, possibly illegal stop on the highway. The Lexus hit the Prius and then Bruce slammed on his brakes, swerved right but was unable to stop, slamming into the Lexus. The Lexus then went into oncoming traffic and hit the Hummer, killing the Lexus driver.

It appears there is no criminal liability on Bruce's part. As for civil liability, there is a law that you cannot follow too close and need to prepare for sudden events. But if the Prius stopped without warning ... that driver could be at the very least partly responsible for the accident.

update_graphic_red_bar

6:00 PM PST -- Jenner released a statement about the crash saying, "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident."

Bruce adds, "It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”

Bruce Jenner Smoking, NOT Texting During Fatal Crash

2/8/2015 10:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-bruce-jenner-car-crash-cigarette-SPLASH-INF-01Bruce Jenner will not get in trouble with the law as a result of his deadly car crash ... at least that's the way it appears based on a new photo.

The picture was taken by an independent photo agency just before Bruce slammed into a Lexus Saturday on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, sending that driver into oncoming traffic where she was killed after colliding with a Hummer.

It was unclear what, if anything, Bruce was holding in his left hand seconds before the crash.  But the new photo shows Bruce clutching a cigarette, not a cell phone. The photo (above) is the first in a sequence shot by the agency, just before the Lexus comes into frame.

0207-SUB-WM-bruce-jenner-moi-splash-03TMZ broke the story, the L.A. County Sheriff's Department was getting a search warrant to determine if Bruce was texting at the time of the collision ... but this picture would seem to make that unnecessary. 

It's illegal to text while driving and motorists who do can be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter if someone dies as a result.

Based on the evidence gathered so far, it seems Bruce will not face any sort of criminal prosecution. As we reported, he slammed on his brakes before impact and veered right to avoid the Lexus.  And deputies believe a Prius in front of the Lexus may have made a sudden stop, triggering the collision.

Bruce Jenner Cops to Get Search Warrant for Cellphone Was He Texting?

2/8/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0206-bruce-jenner-accident-inf-splash3The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. will get a search warrant to determine if Bruce Jenner was texting at the time he slammed into a car, causing the driver to die ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they will get warrants for both Bruce's phone records and the cellphone itself.  It's illegal to text while driving in California and if Bruce was texting Saturday when he struck a car on PCH in Malibu, authorities could charge him with vehicular manslaughter.

The photos we posted showing Bruce in the car immediately before impact do not reveal what if anything he's holding.  It appears he might be clutching something in his left hand but it's unclear.

Even if he was texting, our sources say proving he was doing it at exactly the moment of the crash could be difficult or even impossible.

Our law enforcement sources also tell us they're positive Bruce tried to avoid the accident.  The tires on his trailer produced significant skid marks and at the last minute Bruce veered to the right, causing the Lexus to swing left into oncoming traffic.  A Hummer struck the Lexus, killing the Lexus driver. 

We're told cops are skeptical about the story of the Prius driver, who was hit from the rear by the Lexus in the chain reaction.  The Prius driver says she was stopped at a red light, but she was about 300 feet from the light itself.  Cops don't know if there was a long line of cars in front of her or if she stopped before the light to make an illegal U-turn.  They tell us her story is "vague."

We're told cops didn't check Bruce's phone at the accident scene.  As one law enforcement source put it, "We were more interested in his sobriety."  Bruce passed the sobriety test.

update_graphic_red_bar3:45 PM PT  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Bruce volunteered to go to the hospital to have his blood drawn for blood alcohol testing.  He was taken in a Sheriff's cruiser.  We've also learned the woman who was killed in the white car was coming to a stop at a red light when Bruce hit her.  We're told law enforcement has already determined Bruce was not speeding.

And we're told there was a 4th car involved in the accident.  The woman in the white car hit a Prius in front of her before moving into oncoming traffic.  update_grey_gray_bar

Bruce Jenner was involved in a horrific car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu at around noon Saturday, one person is dead, and it looks like Bruce caused the accident ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... there were 4 vehicles involved in the crash.  We're told there were 8 people involved and all sustained some sort of injury ... but one person died at the scene.

Eyewitnesses say Bruce rear ended the white car and that car went into oncoming traffic and was struck by the Hummer.  You can see the impact in the pics below.  The woman driving the white car died.

0207-SUB-WM-bruce-jenner-moi-splash-03One law enforcement source said Bruce seems to be ok, but again, we're told the 7 survivors sustained some injuries, ranging from minor to moderate.

Jenner family sources tell TMZ Bruce was being chased by as many as 5 paparazzi at the time of the crash.  Bruce told cops he wasn't drinking and passed a field sobriety test.

We're told Bruce had picked up his Polaris UTV after loaning it to a wounded veterans group.

Jennifer Lopez On the Down Low Again With Casper Smart

2/6/2015 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0206-jennifer-lopez-casper-smart-out-last-night-NPG-01Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart very quietly hooked up Thursday night, leading to the obvious question ...

Here's how it went down. Casper was out at the Z Zegna & GQ event in Hollywood where he hung out with Nick Jonas.  

There are plenty of pics of Casper leaving the event with no sign of JLo. But we're told she was actually waiting in the car for him as he left.  

They went to Hotel Cafe in Hollywood where this pic was snapped. It's the only pic of the 2 of them that was taken the entire evening.

They supposedly broke up in April, but they've been seen together from time to time, and they've taken great pains to avoid pics. Remember when she ducked down in her car?

 And you may recall Casper's dog was at JLo's house recently when the dog bit someone.

Bruce Jenner Sexual Preference Uncertain After Cross-Sex Hormone Therapy

2/6/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205_bruce_jenner_PCN

Bruce Jenner -- who has been married three times and produced 6 children -- could become attracted to men after a powerful element of his transition into a woman takes hold ... this according to medical experts and members of the transgender community.

TMZ has spent several days surveying medical experts, who tell us Bruce is in the middle of Cross-sex Hormone Therapy, which involves heavy doses of estrogen.  

The estrogen drives down levels of testosterone and the brain "feminizes" -- in the vernacular, he begins to "think like a woman."

Several prominent doctors in the field tell us, the hormones often change sexual preference. These doctors say in cases where sexual preferences change from women to men, the patient often had suppressed feelings before the transition and the estrogen allows their true feelings to surface.

One leader in the transgender community tells TMZ ... she says based on 300 transsexuals in various countries, 1/3 of them retained their sexual preference, 1/3 identified themselves as bisexual and 1/3 changed sexual preference.

As for Bruce ... we're told he's in a transformative stage, where his skin will change, and his breasts will grow and his voice will become more feminine. The changes are enhanced by procedures Bruce has already completed, including Botox, facial laser hair removal and several other surgeries, including his laryngeal shave.

Bobbi Kristina It's Time to Let Her Go ... Doctors Tell Bobby Brown

2/5/2015 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205_bobby_brown_at_hospital_SPLASH

update_graphic_red_bar

11:45 AM PT -- There are reports that Bobbi Kristina was taken off life support ... but TMZ has been told by sources close to the family that these claims are absolutely false.

We are also told that Bobbi Kristina's grandmother Cissy has still not seen her but plans are in place to get her to Emory University Hospital as soon as possible.

update_grey_gray_bar

There's nothing more doctors can do for Bobbi Kristina -- and they've told Bobby Brown it's time to withdraw life support ... TMZ has learned.

Family sources tell us the decision is now in Brown's hands -- but we're told he's refusing to make the painful choice today, and instead wants to wait until after the weekend.  

The timing could not have been worse. Today is Bobby Brown's birthday.

We're told Brown has been hopeful his daughter can beat the odds because someone in his extended family battled out of a coma after 8 days. 

Bobbi Kristina was moved to Emory University Hospital Tuesday because the facility has a world class neurological department, but it appears doctors have determined there's no hope.

Bobbi Kristina has been in a medically-induced coma since Saturday, when she was found face down in her bathtub.
