North West Baptism

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son ...

and the Paparazzi

4/13/2015 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The baptism of North West was like any Kardashian event ... a total and complete circus. 

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Khloe Kardashian showed up Monday afternoon to the Saint James Cathedral -- an Armenian church in Jerusalem -- to baptize 22-month-old North.

Kim was mobbed as she walked into the church, shielding baby North from the massive crowd that had gathered outside the church. 

Once the ceremony was over, Kim and Kanye reportedly had lunch with the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat.

Just another quiet Kardashian family gathering.

Kardashians

Jet to Israel for Baptism

Bring on the Holy Water

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and North West have left Armenia for the Holy Land ... and the end game is watering the baby.

It was supposed to be an 8 day trip to Armenia, but they bailed 5 days in and jumped on a plane to Jerusalem.

North West will be baptized in a 12th-century Armenian church, according to the Jerusalem Post.

It's interesting ... cameras for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" are recording the entire trip, and Kanye is happily playing along.

They'll only be in Israel for a day. They leave Tuesday for Jordan.

Kanye West

Gets Wet and Wild

During Surprise Free Armenian Concert

4/12/2015 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Turns out Yeezus can't walk on water, he just falls in it like the rest of us. 

Kanye West performed a free concert Sunday night in the capital of Armenia, which came to an end after Kanye jumped into Swan Lake ... and dozens of fans followed suit. 

Kanye's been over there with Kim Kardashian all week as she taps into her Armenian roots -- and shoots scenes for 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'. He performed six songs: "Stronger," "Jesus Walks," "Power," "Touch the Sky," "All of the Lights" and "Good Life."

West's lake dive ended the show -- the crowd went bonkers and cops had to shut it down -- but you know it'll make great promo footage for the reality show.  

Kim and Kanye

Crowd Loses Control

Outside Genocide Memorial

4/11/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim and Kanye have turned Armenia upside down ... creating pandemonium among fans, photogs and soldiers.

The video is insane.  They were leaving the genocide memorial when everyone just went nuts.   It's weird ... the most moving symbol marking the 100th anniversary of the genocide looks more like a Hollywood event.

Listen to the crowd as Kim and Kanye get in their SUV.  The language differences are fascinating, especially the way everyone refers to them.

Kendall Jenner

Movin' and Awkwardly Groovin'

At Coachella

4/11/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendall Jenner is painfully white, and we're not talking skin tone.

Check her out doing what looks at first like the Monster Mash Friday at Coachella. The moves changed, but not necessarily for the better.

Kendall was there with some chick friends ... no trace of Justin Bieber.

0411-sub-bieber-kylie-leaving-cochella-x17-01But later in the day, the Biebs surfaced with Kendall's 17-year-old sister Kylie at the music festival.

Khloe Kardashian

Divorce Case To Be Dismissed

EXCLUSIVE

0410-khloe-lamar-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian has been told to get off her ass in her divorce from Lamar Odom, or the case will be dismissed, and it looks like that's exactly what's about to happen.

A document was just filed by the court in Khloe's divorce, saying she has not gotten off the dime and unless she files paperwork to seal the deal in the divorce case or the whole case will be thrown out.

Khloe filed in December 2013 and Lamar never responded. She had a right to go to court and get a default divorce judgment, but she hasn't done it. In fact, sources connected to the Kardashian family tell us she just doesn't want to deal with the divorce and won't take any action.

It's become a problem, because our sources say the house Khloe and Lamar owned was sold more than a year ago for $5.5 million and the business people don't know what to do with the money because the divorce is in limbo.

So now the court has made it clear ... if Khloe doesn't file papers to make the divorce final, she will stay married to Lamar and the divorce case will be dismissed ... as early as the end of April.

Justin Bieber & Kendall Jenner

Gettin' VERY 'Friendly'

Or Totally Bangin'

4/10/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0410-justin-bieber-kendall-jenner-instagramJustin Bieber and Kendall Jenner play by different rules than most of us -- or they're just straight up banging ... because 'just friends' don't take pics like this.

Biebs certainly loves his puppies because he spent a romantic day out near Coachella with three of his current favorites ... he posted the disgustingly cute photos with Kendall and Esther.

Check out JB's hand -- friends don't go for the waist touch and neck sniff just for fun. In other words ... if this isn't for a magazine cover -- pretty sure they're screwing.

Or maybe just screwing with us.

Khloe Kardashian

Tells the World ...

I'm Still an Odom

4/10/2015 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409-khloe-kardashian-odom-instagramKhloe Kardashian got a present from the Armenian people -- a certificate giving them a plot of land  -- and it's interesting that she's referred to as "Odom" yet she had no problem displaying it to the world. 

It appears the certificate was created by residents of a high-end housing community in the country, where Khloe and Kim are touring. It appears the residents gave the Kardashians a piece of earth.

The certificate refers to Kim as Kimberly Kardashian West and Khloe as Khloe Kardashian Odom.

As you know, Khloe filed for divorce a year-and-a-half ago. No big deal the certificate reads "Odom," but it got our attention that she posted a photo of the certificate on her Instagram and wrote, "Kourt and Rob we got you a souvenir!!!!!! Land in Armenia!!!"

She had to know she was referred to as Odom, and apparently she cared, because Khloe deleted the post.

Khloe's divorce has been stalled for months.  There's been no activity and no explanation.

Kim and Khloe

Hey Prime Minister

Nice to Meet Ya!

0409-kardashians-armenian-prime-minister-arrow-twitter-03

Kim and Khloe Kardashian had a meeting Thursday with none other than Hovik Abrahamyan, the Prime Minister of Armenia.

The P.M. heaped praise on the Kardashian girls for staying in touch with their Armenian roots and remembering the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.

0409-sub-kardashians-prime-twitter-01It's unclear if "KUWTK" cameras were rolling during the visit, but there was plenty of video so the girls are in luck. They apologized for not speaking the Armenian language but promised to learn it ... or at least give it the ol' college try.

The Prime Minister gave them a flower arrangement that symbolizes the anniversary.

Just wow.

Love of Sports

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Becoming WomanBruce Jenner has been a super athlete all his life, and that won't change when he becomes a woman.

Sources close to Bruce tell TMZ his routines -- which involve multiple sports -- will be unaffected. Bruce is a staple at his golf country club, where the members love him, and he will stay active at the club.

Bruce is heavy into paddleboarding in Malibu -- something he does with his sons -- and that will continue.

We're told Bruce will keep up his passion for racing cars recreationally with his kids. Ditto flying helicopters, both model and real.

Short story ... he's been a world-class athlete with a passion for sports, and that's not going to change.

Kim and Kanye

Arrive in Armenia

To GIANT Crowd

4/8/2015 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got the full diplomat treatment as they arrived in Armenia to the cheers of an enormous crowd and tons of media.

Although their trip is just days short of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Kim's rep says it has nothing to do with the commemoration. Kim says she simply wants to get in touch with her Armenian roots.

North and Khloe were also there -- as they were greeted by women in traditional Armenian garb, who presented the fam with bread and salt ... a tradition for greeting dignitaries. They all left the airport together in a minivan.

They plan to visit the genocide monument, museums, meet with politicians and they will reportedly go to the town of Gyumri ... where relatives of her dad may live.

Kylie Jenner

30 Going On 17

4/8/2015 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner AgeKylie Jenner hopped in a time machine, and POOF -- just like that she looked like a real life regular 17-year-old again ... a much different look than she's been flaunting lately.

Kylie was refreshingly makeup-free while hanging out with her sister Kendall ... who was doing a
photo shoot Tuesday in Malibu. 

In recent weeks she's tried out a lot of different looks -- some with less success than others -- but this one might be most revealing of all. Imagine that ... a 17-year-old who actually looks 17.

Prisoner Sues

Keep Those People Out of Florida!

0408-kim-kardashian-kanye-tmz

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West must be stopped at the Florida border, because they're nothing but wannabe Jay Z's and Beyonce's ... according to a prisoner who has taken his cause to court.

Wayne Albright -- who's been locked up since 2000 for attempted sexual assault -- claims Florida needs protection from the couple he calls "Meat Whistles" and "Moose Knuckles."

Albright shows abject contempt for the famous duo, declaring the only tolerable Kardashian is Rob, who's "eating himself out of house and home, no doubt from the shame he feels as a result of what Kim has done to the Kardashian name."

The prisoner is specifically targeting Kim and Kanye from stepping foot in Florida, and he wants to "ban these two Moose Knuckles from appearing on any television programs aired in the state of Florida, unless it's Court TV and they're on trial for posing as a famous couple."

Albright seeks a temporary restraining order, telling the judge, "You have your work cut out for you ... so what do you say? Make us all proud."
