Kim Kardashian

Dodges Ticket for Banging ...

An Illegal U-Turn

1/28/2015 8:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0128-kim-kardashian-pulled-over-x17
Kim Kardashian's made her share of wrong turns (we're looking at you Kris Humphries), but the latest got her in trouble with cops ... temporarily, anyway.

Kim got pulled over for making an illegal U-turn in Calabasas on Tuesday ... as she was leaving Kourtney's house. 

But our Kardashian sources say Kim pulled off a chick special -- meaning she managed to talk her way out of the ticket. We don't know what Kim was wearing when the cop walked up to her SUV -- besides a smile -- but it worked ... for her.

Warning: Results will vary if you try this at home.

Chris Martin

Allegedly Strikes Photog

But Something's Weird

1/26/2015 6:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0123-chris-martin-jeep-launch-02
Chris Martin allegedly hit a photog with his jeep as he left a fancy Santa Monica restaurant, but there's something really odd about this one.

Chris and Gwyneth Paltrow went to Giorgio Baldi Restaurant with their 2 kids and all was fine, but on the way out a photog runs up to take their photo and says he was struck by their jeep. An ambulance was called and the pap was taken to the hospital.

Here's the weird thing. The photog who took pics of the accident was standing across the street. It's unclear why a cameraman would be so far away, because there was a clear shot of the family from the restaurant side ... right on the sidewalk. In fact, 3 other photogs were perched right there. 

We've never seen a photog take pics from across that street ... so, as we said, it's weird he's the one who got shots of the accident. Also, he and the guy who allegedly got hit have worked together.

And as the injured photog is taken away on a stretcher, he's looking directly into the camera.

Johnny Depp
 put hundreds of screaming mustached women on their knees ... just by showing up.

No, it's not a kinky Hollywood sex party ... hundreds of excited Japanese fans greeted Depp and fiancee Amber Heard at the Haneda International Airport in Tokyo Monday morning after arriving in town to promote his latest film, "Mortdecai."
 
The screaming fans let him know how glad they were to see him by sporting the same mustache he dons in the film ... but turns out they were just as pumped for him as they were for Heard.

The two did their duty by signing a few autographs, leaving dozens in happy tears. 

Check out the trailer ... maybe they should save a few for the movie.
 

Chris Brown

Mannin' Up to Drop Off Karrueche ...

Guilt Trip or Nice Guy?

Chris Brown was caught at LAX doing the deed with Karrueche Tran ... being a good boyfriend, that is.

You know it's true love in L.A. when someone goes through the hassle of dropping you off at the airport -- that, or your spirit's been completely broken. Or you're making up for something. Whatever the reason ... Brown did his duty giving KT the kiss and fly on Sunday.

This is huge, when you consider he could have just sprung for an Uber -- but she still lugged her own bags. He's good ... just not THAT good.

Cristiano Ronaldo

It Was a Beard All Along!

0123-cristiano-ronaldo-soccer-akmgsi
Seems Cristiano Ronaldo has a lot more free time on his hands now that he's single -- 'cause the soccer star decided to go under cover as a fat guy to screw with some fans. 

Ronaldo threw on a beard, mustache, sunglasses and some fat guy padding ... and went out on the streets of Madrid Thursday to juggle a soccer ball ... just to see how people would react. 

Eventually, Ronaldo ripped off the disguise ... and the people went crazy ... especially one young kid who got a hug from Ronaldo and an autographed soccer ball.

He's so sneaky.

One thing you can say about Amber Rose ... she's a crack jetskier. 

Amber made waves Monday as she traversed South Beach in all her glory.

Amber Rose ... gluteus to the maximus.

Jimmy Kimmel

Fatherhood Blows Sometimes

... Deal With It, Baby

1/19/2015 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy Kimmel Blowing NoseJimmy Kimmel is very close to his six-month-old daughter Jane -- so close that he sees nothing wrong with using her burp cloth as his snot rag.

Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney were out for a late breakfast at Republique in Los Angeles when the late night host blew his nose in the first available rag he could find. 

We're guessing every parent can relate to his plight -- but every parent also knows what's been in those rags.

You're a brave man, Jimmy.

Justin Bieber

This Book Makes Me Thinketh

1/17/2015 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117-justin-bieber-as-a-man-thinketh-X17-01Justin Bieber has been doing a lot of pondering ... so his choice of book makes it appear.

Bieber was in Beverly Hills Friday clutching "As a Man Thinketh" ... an essay from 1902 by James Allen that many consider a very helpful personal development tool.

The book stresses the importance of your own thoughts ... and how they can effect your personal life. Think "The Secret" ... but much older.

Sounds like recommended reading.

Puff, Puff ...

Pass the Skinnygirl Weed!

0115-bethenny-frankel-akmgsi-wmLike smoking weed but hate packing on the extra Funyun-induced pounds? Then Bethenny Frankel is about to become your salvation.  

Yes, the woman who built Skinnygirl products into a multi-million dollar empire is now branching out into weed. Our sources confirm Frankel is working on selling a kind of pot that does NOT give you the munchies.  

Frankel seemed to be doing market research last month in the Rockies when she was seen walking out of the famous Green Dragon Dispensary in Aspen. It's kinda like the Barney's New York of pot sales. 

BF later tweeted, "OMG it's the craziest thing to see marijuana legal in Aspen. People walking into pot stores like it's the @Gap #prohibitiondone"

As first reported by Us Weekly, Frankel plans to peddle her buds in states where recreational marijuana is legal ... like Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
