Shia LaBeouf

Transforms Into Optimus Grime

2/27/2015 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0227_shia_labeouf_hair_AKM-GSI_2Shia LaBeouf is now the proud owner of a pony, and some hardware ... in his face.

Shia debuted his Riff Raff-esque look -- ponytail past his shoulders and eyebrow piercing -- while walking around the San Fernando Valley Friday with his girlfriend Mia Goth.  

It's unclear if the hardcore look is for a new movie role, or if Shia's just trying out something different. 

"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" might not be Shia's biggest misstep after all.

Ed Sheeran

Album of the Year Leads to

Drunken Night of His Life

2/26/2015 8:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0226_ed_sheeran_brit_awards_party_photos_launch_2Ed Sheeran celebrated his Album of the Year win at the BRIT Awards by drinking ALL OF THE ALCOHOL IN LONDON ... or so it seems based on these crazy pics of his night.

Sheeran was spotted all over town Wednesday night -- first hitting up an after-party at Freemasons' Hall and then venturing to The Box Nightclub with Sam Smith.

They reportedly stayed out until 6 AM -- which is obvious from the look on Ed's face at the end of this gallery.

After winning his first award of the night, Sheeran told the show's hosts, "I've got to perform and then I'll drink. Don't film me later."

No film ... but the pics are awesome.

Khloe

It's Kardashian Ass Season Again

2/26/2015 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-khloe-kardashian-pants-x17With most of the country still suffering through a brutal winter, Khloe Kardashian ushered in Kardashian butt season Wednesday in Beverly Hills by sporting a pair of see-through yoga pants.

If the past is any indication, you can expect Kim, Kendall, Kourtney and even young Kylie to follow suit ... because one Kardashian butt is like a signal to all Kardashian butts to come out and play. 

Nature is a glorious thing. 

Matt Bellamy

Blurs Lines with Kate Look-Alike

EXCLUSIVE

0225-matt-bellamy-elle-evans-AKMGSI-01Matt Bellamy jumped from Kate Hudson to her doppelganger -- who starred in the "Blurred Lines" video -- but we've learned he's just friends with the leggy model/actress.

Her name is Elle Evans -- and you'd probably know her better with her clothes off ... as she was in the uncensored version of Robin Thicke's hit music vid. 

The Muse singer and Evans were photographed on Oscar night -- but sources close to the situation tell us it was no romantic dinner date. They were leaving Craig's with about 10-12 other friends. We're told Sunday was the first time they'd hung out together. 

Guess she's just a good girl ...

Beyonce

Lunch Date ...

With a Side of Boob

2/25/2015 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-beyonce-jay-z-x17Beyonce was bouncing all over L.A. ... because her tatas went commando while house hunting with Jay Z

Shopping for a new home can be liberating -- and it certainly was for Bey's girls ... which got some freedom and sunshine during a lunch break at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood.

As we've reported ... Jay & Beyonce have spent several months searching for the perfect L.A. house to purchase and make their West Coast HQ.

Just a feeling, but something's gonna open up for them soon. 

Flawless. 

Bruce Jenner

Speed at Impact ... 38 MPH

2/24/2015 4:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_bruce_jenner_crash_splashBruce Jenner was traveling at 38 miles an hour when he struck the Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway earlier this month ... according to data retrieved from his SUV.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Sensing Diagnostic Module (data recorder) shows Bruce was traveling between 46 and 47 MPH when he slammed on his brakes. Our sources say impact occurred almost immediately after braking.

That would mean Bruce must not have seen the cars backed up at the light until the very last second, which could explain why he was casually holding a cigarette as the cars collided.

TMZ broke the story ... an MTA bus captured the entire crash, showing Bruce's SUV hitting the Lexus, which went into oncoming traffic and struck a Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Bruce then hit the Prius that was in front of the Lexus.

We're told the entire accident occurred in less than 3 seconds. 

'Pirates of the Caribbean'

Secrets of the Hidden Prop Boat

0224-shipping-containers-pirates-caribbean-rameyFrom the outside, the Australian set of the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie doesn't look like much ... just a stack of shipping containers. But like a buried treasure, there's a secret within ... 

0224-ship-pirates-caribbean-rameyConsidering each "Pirates" movie has been worse than the one before, Jack Sparrow's beloved boat better have a Guardian of the Galaxy, X-Man or Avenger on it this time.

Honey Boo Boo

Here She Comes Again ...

But There's a Speed Bump

EXCLUSIVE

Honey Boo Boo Show Return
Honey Boo Boo is far from done ... the fam is back in L.A. meeting with producers this week ... but convicted sex-offender Mark McDaniel could derail everything.

Sources say several networks believe the world has been Boo-deprived for too long ... TLC cancelled the show back in October. The idea being shopped is a "Beverly Hillbillies" theme with a new house, money, and drivers while they adjust to being famous around town.

But here's the problem ... we're told producers want to drudge up Chickadee's molestation business with McDaniel and use it to inaugurate the series, but the family says they're dealing with it privately in therapy and want to move on.

But people love it when couples reunite ... por ejemplo Mama June and Sugar Bear ... we're told producers are pushing to see them fix things and co-parent for the show.

Decisions ... decisions.

Bruce Jenner

Video Captures Entire Crash

Bruce Plowed into Both Cars

2/17/2015 2:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0217_bruce_jenner_crash_scene_splash-4A MTA bus caught the entire Bruce Jenner car crash on video and sources tell TMZ it squarely shows Bruce struck both cars, and the Lexus driver NEVER made contact with the Prius. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they are in possession of the video. Sources familiar with the bus in question -- which was directly behind the Hummer -- tell TMZ there are cameras mounted on the front, back and sides, and the videos show the entire accident. 

Law enforcement will not tell us what's on the video, but sources familiar with the video in question tell us it's clear the Lexus never made contact with the Prius. Bruce hit the Lexus, which propelled it into oncoming traffic and then struck the Hummer. Bruce then continued on and hit the Prius.

021715_bruce_jenner_accident_recreation_launch_v4We obtained a re-creation of the accident, which was NOT based on the video but which sources tell us accurately reflects what is on the MTA video. The re-creation, however, does not show the braking of Bruce's or the other vehicles, which could be a factor. 

The MTA video is critical ... because Bruce -- and not the Lexus driver who died -- hit the Prius, it makes a more compelling case that he was following too close, which opens the door to a possible vehicular manslaughter prosecution.

Kendall Jenner

Hey Justin ...

I'm ALSO Friends With NYPD Cops

2/15/2015 7:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0215-kendall-jenner-pose-police-book-marc-SPLASH-01Justin Bieber ain't the only celeb making friends with the NYPD ... his buddy Kendall Jenner is also getting chummy with the boys (and ladies) in blue.

Kendall posed for pics with a group of officers Saturday night outside the Book Marc Bookstore in New York ... just a day after Justin foot the dinner bill for a group of NYPD officers.

Justin and Kendall have been hanging out together lately.  So, we ask, is she gonna kick anyone's ass at ping pong now?

Kim Kardashian

My Baby's Fab in Tiny Fur ...

Suck It, Protesters

2/12/2015 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-kim-kardashian-northwest-splashKim Kardashian and North West did some mommy-daughter time in NYC ... while decked out in fur coats -- yes, they make 'em that small. 

Kim and North -- sans Kanye West -- turned quite a few heads as they were leaving their building ... and North looks like she's being engulfed. There's way more coat than kid!

Question though: Is it odd for Kim to dress her toddler in fur? Especially since Kim's had multiple run-ins with animal rights protesters in the past. 

We can't tell if the fur's real, but animal rights aside -- North's so damn cute ... SHE should be illegal!

Bruce Jenner

Car Crash Photos

Could Create Problems for Jenner

2/12/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

JENNER-2ROW

The photographs taken immediately before and during the Bruce Jenner accident have triggered a new theory ... that the Lexus may not have hit the Prius in front of her, and that he may have struck both cars.

We have 9 photos taken by an independent photog -- not TMZ.

The key to the sequence is determining if the Lexus Bruce struck had first hit the Prius in front of her. If the Lexus driver was following too closely and struck the Prius first, Bruce would just be part of the chain reaction and prosecution would be unlikely.

Check out the pics closely

1.  Bruce is cruising up Pacific Coast Highway. Cops believe he was within the 50 MPH speed limit.

2.  Bruce passes a car. Notice the telephone pole.

3.  The telephone pole is behind Bruce's trailer.

4.  The car continues moving, and you see Bruce holding a cigarette, seemingly unaware traffic in front of him is either moving very slowly or stopped completely.

5.  The Lexus comes into view. Law enforcement tells us they believe at around this time Bruce sees he's going too fast and slams on his brakes.

6.  Bruce closes in on the Lexus, which is traveling in a straight line. 

7.  Bruce hits the Lexus. Upon impact you see the Lexus veer left. Cops say that's because Bruce veered right and struck the Lexus on the right, causing it to ricochet to the left.

8. You see the movement of the Lexus. You see just about half of the front of the car. Cops say because the car was in a straight line before Bruce hit it, if the Lexus had first hit the Prius there would have been roughly the same damage on the right and left front. But there's no evidence of damage.

9. The Lexus continues to veer left into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by the Hummer, killing the Lexus driver.

0211_PRIUS-SMALL_splashLaw enforcement sources say one of the operating theories is that the Prius was stopped behind cars for the light which had turned green and traffic started moving slowly when Bruce hit the Lexus. When the Lexus cleared his lane the momentum kept his car going forward, crashing into the Prius.

There are witnesses who claim the Lexus struck the Prius first and witnesses vary in terms of how many collisions they heard.  

The lawyer for the Prius driver tells TMZ ... there's an imprint of Bruce's license plate in the Prius. The problem with that claim -- check out Bruce's SUV before the crash ... NO FRONT LICENSE PLATE. 

The cars are all in the Sheriff's Dept. impound lot.

If Bruce is the only one who struck both the Lexus and then the Prius, it would make prosecution for vehicular manslaughter more likely, if authorities determined he was following too closely.

Update_Graphic_Bar

6:15 AM PT -- The lawyer for the Prius driver just contacted us again, and now says the emblem on Bruce's SUV -- not the phantom license plate -- is imprinted in the back of the Prius.

Tom Cruise

Does Ex Factor ...

With Penelope Cruz

2/12/2015 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-tom-cruise-splashTom Cruise hooked up with his ex-girlfriend Penelope Cruz ... for dinner in London and left with a souvenir... -- he was caught leaving with a red lipstick stain on his cheek.

Since he's Tom Cruise ... dinner with Penelope wouldn't be hot enough -- so her pal Salma Hayek came along for the meal at Scott's in London.

No clue on who planted the smooch on Cruise -- both women were wearing red lipstick.

Now, for the buzz kill -- Penelope's married with kids now (just like Salma) so probably not a hot and heavy date night. 

Ahh, but the mammaries. They'll always have those.
