Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp is trying to keep silent about the rumors he's hooking up with Khloe Kardashian -- but TMZ Sports has learned there's definitely something cooking between them.
Our Kardashian sources tell us Khloe and Matt are in the early, early stages of a relationship and they're "taking it really slow." Makes sense -- Khloe just filed to divorce Lamar Odom last week.
Monday in L.A., Matt was asked about his "love life" ... and said he was only focusing on baseball -- and when asked specifically about Khloe he said even less. However, Kemp also pumped up the buzz yesterday by posting what many people believed to be the giant Christmas tree at Kardashian HQ ... aka Kris Jenner's house.
We're told the tree in the Instagram is NOT KJ's ... and it's actually Matt's. He lives in the same 'hood as the Kardashians -- and we're told the foyer at his pad is almost identical to theirs.
One source tells us Matt and Khloe have a ton in common -- "same neighborhood, same friends, and same love of family."
Could be a very interesting guest list at the Kardashian Christmas dinner.

No, I'm Leaving You!
12/14/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom is as done with his marriage as Khloe Kardashian and wants to get married again STAT -- to his basketball career ... sources connected to Lamar tell TMZ.
We broke the story ... Khloe filed for divorce Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. The last straw was Lamar shooting the rap video in which he bragged about cheating on Khloe.
Now get this ... Lamar blames the infidelity on his friends who are "supporting me the wrong way by bringing girls around."
Lamar also casts blame on Khloe ... telling his friends, "I can't be f**kin' with Khloe. She brings out the bad side of me."
Lamar says he needs to "get married" to his basketball career and wants to ignore the past.
And that's the world according to Lamar Odom.
Cancels Surgery to Flatten Adam's Apple ... For Now
12/14/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner called his Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Friday and cancelled his scheduled surgery to flatten his Adam's Apple ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with Jenner say he was upset information about the procedure leaked out and blamed people in the doctor's office. We're told Bruce informed them he was taking his business elsewhere.
TMZ broke the story ... Jenner had 2 consultations with the doctor and had scheduled surgery for both a Laryngeal Shave (Adam's Apple flattening) and a nose job. We're now told the surgery was scheduled for next Wednesday. Sources say Jenner wanted a smaller nose. Bruce tells TMZ he wanted plastic surgery because of scar tissue after cancer removal surgery.
Multiple medical sources have told TMZ ... getting a Laryngeal Shave is almost always the first step in gender reassignment. Bruce scoffs at that, telling TMZ, "I just didn't like my trachea."
We're told Bruce has spoken with his family and told them the surgery is now off ... other sources say Bruce indicated he will have it done at a different plastic surgeon's office.
Files Divorce Docs
12/13/2013 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian has just filed court documents to divorce Lamar Odom and restore her name -- TMZ has learned.
As we first told you, Khloe planned to pull the trigger today on her 4-year marriage to Lamar, who has been deep in the world of drugs on and off for the last 2 years.
In the legal docs, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, Khloe cites "irreconcilable differences."
As we previously reported, the couple has a prenup so division of property will be a cinch -- they kept all their property separate.
And Khloe is asking the judge to take Odom out of her name, so she is once again simply Khloe Kardashian ... eliminating Odom from her life in every way.
And, Khloe is NOT asking for spousal support and wants the judge to reject any bid by Lamar for the same.
Kim and Kanye
Billionaire Fights Back
You NEVER Told Me I Couldn't Shoot Wedding Proposal
12/13/2013 5:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The billionaire who co-founded YouTube is refusing to back down from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- firing back at the couple after they sued him for posting video of their engagement online.
We broke the story ... K&K filed a lawsuit against Chad Hurley, claiming he violated the confidentiality agreement he signed at AT&T Park in San Fran back in October ... when he posted the footage on his video-sharing website.
But now, Chad has filed legal docs of his own ... claiming NO ONE ever told him he wasn't allowed to shoot or distribute the footage.
Chad says ... after the proposal, someone did approach him with a waiver and told him it was a release so they could use his image in a TV special .. and he signed the doc without reading it.
He also posed for a pic with the signed form, at the request of K&K's peeps.
But still, Chad says he shouldn't be legally bound by the waiver because he was misled into signing it and he got no compensation in return for signing away his rights.
Chad is asking the judge to throw out the case -- and force Kim and Kanye to pay for his legal fees.
Clearly, Chad can afford it ... he's just trying to send a giant F-you back to the happy couple.
I'm Ditching My Adam's Apple
12/13/2013 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce Jenner is flattening his Adam's Apple ... TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the Olympian met with a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon today for a consultation for a procedure called a Laryngeal Shave -- which smooths out the Adam's Apple.
The procedure is typically done on patients who are in the first stage of gender reassignment, but Bruce tells TMZ that is NOT the case with him. He says, "I just never liked my trachea."
We know this is Bruce's second visit to the office.
The doctor took photographs today and sources tell us surgery has been scheduled for early next year, but Bruce insists no surgery has been set yet -- it was just a consultation.
We got video (below) of Bruce earlier today leaving the doctor's office.
5:10PM PDT: Jenner just called TMZ and wanted to add this ... He says he initially went to the plastic surgeon because the basal cell carcinoma that was removed from his nose in September left a large scar that didn't heal well. He wanted plastic surgery for his nose, and says while he was there he consulted the doc on the Laryngeal Shave.
Bruce Jenner Should
'Get the Breasts Already'
12/13/2013 6:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Marlon Wayans believes Bruce Jenner's laryngeal shave is the first step toward becoming a woman -- but he's moving too slow -- telling Bruce, "Just get the breasts" already!!"
We broke the story, Bruce already consulted a plastic surgeon about reducing the size of his adam's apple -- though Bruce insists it's NOT the first step of gender reassignment, it's just because he doesn't like the way his throat looks.
Still, Marlon ain't buyin' Bruce's explanation -- and on his way out a "What the Funny" event he told us, "I think slowly but surely he's been turning himself into a woman all these years."
"Why don't Bruce Jenner just go and get the titties now ... just get the breasts."
In the end, Marlon says if Bruce continues down the surgery path ... "He's gonna look like me in 'White Chicks.'"
Filing for Divorce
12/13/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom ... TODAY ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.
As we reported, Lamar's bizarre freestyle rap video -- in which he brags about cheating on Khloe -- was the last straw in their crumbling relationship. Immediately after TMZ posted the video last month, Khloe stopped wearing her wedding ring.
The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.
Lamar and Khloe tied the knot in September 2009.
KIM K'S A HOBBIT
She's a TERRIBLE Role Model for Girls
12/12/2013 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian is a FRAUD who's poisoning the minds of impressionable young women ... because in real-life, she's got the body of a HOBBIT ... this according to the people at "South Park."
Trey Parker and Matt Stone blasted Kim K on last night's episode -- and it all started when Butters refused to date an overweight, ugly classmate because she doesn't look like his dream woman Kim K.
That's when Wendy unloads -- "Kim Kardashian is a short overweight woman who manipulates her image and makes average girls feel horrible about themselves."
She added, "In real life, Kim Kardashian has the body of a Hobbit!!!"
Throughout the episode, Kanye West appears and tries to convince everyone Kim is not, in fact, a Hobbit ... but even KW isn't entirely convinced.
It's not the first time South Park's taken aim at celebrities -- they've gone after everyone from Paris Hilton to Michael Jackson and, of course, Tom Cruise.
Lamar's Cheating Rap Was Last Straw
12/12/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is done with Lamar Odom, and the final straw was the alcohol/drug-fueled rap song in which Lamar brags about cheating on her.
The pictures tell the story ... on Nov 23, Khloe was in Australia, boarding a plane for the U.S. She was wearing her wedding ring.
Khloe didn't know it, but TMZ had just posted a video of Lamar Odom, in which her hubby is clearly under the influence of something, rapping about infidelity -- "And when Khloe's out of town I still be on the DL."
Sources connected to Khloe say she found out about the video on the plane and went ballistic. When she landed she was hiding her left hand in her purse. Two days later, the ring was gone and she hasn't worn it since.
As we previously reported, Khloe WILL divorce Lamar. The question is when ... as far as we know, she hasn't decided when to pull the trigger.
I'm Being Scammed By Warhol
12/5/2013 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The artist who says she’s Andy Warhol’s cousin and claims Kanye West hired her to paint Kim Kardashian ... may be trying to have her own 15 minutes of fame … because Kim says she has no clue who the woman is.
Monica Warhol – a Tucson artist whose style is similar to Andy’s – tells TMZ Kanye’s people contacted her two weeks ago … and gave her a pic of Kim and asked her to create a screen painting of the photo.
Warhol says she’s already created 9 different Kim paintings ... and says her pieces generally sell for $20K to $70K apiece.
But sources close to Kim tell TMZ … she’s never heard of the woman … and thinks the whole thing may be a scam or a way for Warhol to get publicity – her 15 minutes of fame.
When we called Warhol back, she gave us an explanation for why she's being rebuffed by Kim & Kanye ... she thinks the painting may have been intended as a surprise gift ... and now that the surprise has been ruined ... K&K don't want it.
Warhol says if this deal falls through, she’ll put the artwork up for sale to anyone who wants to buy it.
