Kim Kardashian Nip Nip Hooray!!!

8/2/2017 8:51 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian's a soldier ... for the nipple revolution, and something tells us she won't have a problem getting people to fall in line.

Kim was leaving a clothing shop Tuesday in NYC wearing a see-through black blouse ... putting everything on display in an outfit that could start ... or end a war. Apologies to her camo pants and shades, but there's nothing incognito about this ensemble.

Little sister Kendall Jenner was in tow ... evidently taking a break from the "Free the Nipple" movement.

Kim K There Was No $100 Mil Rip-off! LuMee Got Gov't Approval

8/1/2017 2:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and LuMee -- makers of her fave illuminated phone case -- say they have proof they didn't steal another company's tech, and it includes a government stamp of approval.

LuMee is firing back at the $100 million lawsuit filed by Snaplight ... saying if anything, it's the one getting ripped off. In fact, LuMee points out it sued Snaplight first, back in November 2016.

In those docs, obtained by TMZ, LuMee includes its own patent, which was issued in 2016, and acknowledges Snaplight also has a patent -- issued in 2013. Still, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approved LuMee ... meaning there are likely meaningful differences between the products.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim's company got sued by Snaplight, which says LuMee -- armed with Kim's promotions -- is killing it in sales.

Snaplight tells us it's ready to go to war.

Kim K's Co. Sued for $100 Mil Your Perfect Selfie Tech Is Perfect Rip-off

7/31/2017 2:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:23 PM PT -- A rep for the Kardashians tells TMZ, "The patent lawsuit filed by Snap Light has no merit and is just another attempted shakedown. Kim has done absolutely nothing wrong."

A rep for LuMee tells us the lawsuit has no merit and Kim did nothing wrong. The rep added, "LuMee is an innovator of illuminated cell phone cases and was the first to market. Between its patents, copyrights and trademarks, LuMee has developed substantial intellectual property rights surrounding its product line. LuMee is currently asserting patent infringement against Snaplight.”Kim Kardashian's use and promotion of an illuminated smartphone case is totally ripping off the guy who invented it, and he says he has receipts to prove it ... according to a $100 million lawsuit.

Kim's company ... Kimsaprincess, Inc. got slapped with the suit Monday -- a guy named Hooshmand Harooni says he got a patent back in 2013 for an "integrated lighting accessory and case for a mobile phone device." If that sounds familiar, that's because it's a perfect description of the LuMee.

No doubt you've seen Kim flaunt the LuMee on her social media. She says it helps her take perfectly lit selfies -- obviously, a major asset in her world. She even used it for her famous selfies with Hillary Clinton.

Problem is ... Harooni licensed his invention to a company called Snaplight, which is now getting buried in sales. Snaplight and Harooni say LuMee jacked their patented technology, and made it an unfair fight by teaming up with a supreme trendsetter like Kim.

In the docs, Snaplight says Kim is getting a cut of LuMee's sizable profits -- and now it wants a chunk of that cheddar too. The company says $100 million will cover its lost profits.

EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are fully back on track as co-parents after some serious conversations and a little family vacation.

Sources close to the situation tell us Kourtney's laid out the rules loud and clear to Scott ... if things are gonna work, there's no more hard partying and he's gotta respect her dating someone else. We're told so far, Scott's obliged and things have gone swimmingly.

The pair recently spent some time in Nantucket with their 3 kids. Our sources say, while they're totally done romantically, they realize the importance of showing their kids they can get along.

TMZ broke the story, Kourtney was furious with Scott after he had a jealousy-fueled party spree back in May ... and even kept the kids from him until he cleaned up his act. For now, we're told it's squeaky clean.

Kendall Jenner Cuts The Red Tape ... Frees the Nipple, Again

7/30/2017 1:16 PM PDT

Kendall Jenner's a well-known supporter of the "Free the Nipple" movement -- and on Sunday, she proved her advocacy yet again.

The model was seen out Sunday in NYC in a barely there see-through red blouse, which put her assets on full display. 

This definitely isn't her first time unburdening her nips -- she was recently doing just that at a beach party in Mykonos ... and who could forget last year's hang out sesh with her girls?

It's about 80 degrees in the city right now ... looks like she must've caught a draft here.

Blac Chyna & Lamar Odom Life On the Outside

7/27/2017 7:54 AM PDT

Life after the Kardashians -- it does exist -- looked pretty smooth for Blac Chyna and Lamar Odom Wednesday night in Bev Hills.

Rob and Khloe's exes were hanging together at the iGo.Live app launch event. Tyga was there too, but opted out of the reunion pic. 

Chyna started dating Rob shortly after Lamar's near-fatal overdose. Lamar and Khloe had called it quits long before that so it's unclear how often BC and LO have crossed paths before.

Rob and Lamar were once BFFs. We're guessing Chyna couldn't pass on the shot at her ex photo op.

Kim Kardashian Sued by Makeup Artist ... Your Logo's Me$$ing with Me!

7/25/2017 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:53 PM PT -- Sources connected to Kim's makeup line tell us she consulted several veteran trademark attorneys when launching her KKW line to ensure there were no violations. Nevertheless, we're told her team is confident KKW Beauty in no way infringes on Weiss' KW brand ... nor do they feel the lines are similar.

Kim Kardashianhas no right to her own initials ... in the cosmetics world, anyway ... according to the Danish makeup artist who's now suing her.

If you're into makeup you probably know the name Kirsten Kjaer Weiss. She says she's a famous makeup artist, and her line of KW cosmetics and makeup services are hot sellers around the world. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Kirsten says Kim K's cosmetics logo is confusing consumers. She says the problem is Kim's products bear the 'KKW' logo ... far too similar to Kirsten's 'KW.' 

In the suit, Kirsten says Kim's infringement is "knowing, willing and deliberate" -- and it's intended to dupe customers and screw with Kirsten's bottom line.

The great Dane wants the court to immediately block Kim from using 'KKW,' and to award her all of Kim's sizeable profits, and to punish KK by making her pay damages.

Blac Chyna to Mechie This Is What You Get for Tattin' My Name

7/22/2017 7:20 AM PDT

Blac Chyna is on the road and giving lap dances again, but not for dollar bills ... just for her new bf.

Chyna did a paid appearance at Miami's Mynt Lounge Friday night, and brought her boo, Mechie, along to keep her company. The singer was well compensated though ... with Chyna's boobs and ass in his face.

Maybe it was worth it getting her initials tatted on him -- but probably not.

Meanwhile, her ex ... Rob Kardashian was back on social media, and obeying the restraining order. No revenge porn, just an adorable pic of their daughter Dream in a ball pit. Well played, Dad.

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's parting ways with the first home she ever bought, but it took one final price slash to make it happen ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Kylie sold her 5,100 sq. ft. Calabasas pad for $3.15 million, a bit less than the $3.3 asking price. Our sources say the buyer is Bellami Hair founder Nikki Eslami.

As we reported ... Kylie bought the place for $2.6 million back in 2015 and forked over a ton of money for renovations inside and out. She put the 6 bed, 7 bath house on the market for $3.9 mil in June 2016, but dropped the price in April when there were no takers.

We're told she still came out slightly ahead in the deal, which was brokered by real estate giant Tomer Fridman.

Kylie's not homeless  -- she scooped up 3 other properties in the area ... including one she rents to Rob.

We're told they're not buying a house together ... he's looking to rent a place in the Hollywood Hills or the Valley where he and Khloe can stay when they're in the city.

Kylie Jenner Wax On, Wax Off ... Confusion Ensues

7/19/2017 8:07 AM PDT

One of these chicks used to bang Tyga ... the other was probably a scented candle.

Kylie Jenner hit up Madame Tussauds in Hollywood Tuesday for the unveiling of her doppelganger ... and it's absolutely uncanny. Seriously, pop quiz, hot shot -- if they were dressed alike, would you really be able to tell 'em apart?

Even Kylie had some fun with her new BFF on social media.

The real winner here is Tyga. There IS another, and she's a real cheap date!

Sources close to Bregoli tell us Kim was denying photos with other patrons, but made an exception for her. We're told Danielle was apprehensive -- you know, because she talked crazy smack about her whole family in February -- but Kim couldn't have been nicer.

Kendall Jenner I Need Protection! Fan Sending Weird, Hostile Letters Wants to Marry Me

7/12/2017 5:11 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendall Jenner's being flooded with letters from a fan who claimed to love her at first, but then turned bitter, angry, and she thinks ... dangerous.

According to new docs ... a California man named Thomas Hummel has been incessantly professing his love for her since February. Kendall's security warned him in March to stay away, but a few weeks later he started writing again with a much darker tone.

According to the docs, Hummel started insulting Kendall and her mother, Kris Jenner. In one letter, he called Kendall "an internet whore, cackling your way through life." He continued ... "You look like you've been f***ing AHOLE Dog Sh**t in the sewer for years." He also accused Kris of paying A$AP Rocky -- or as he puts it, "AHOLE Rockhead" -- to sleep with Kendall.

In other bizarre letters ... Hummel mentions remembering Kendall from the post office in 2008 and Costco in 1998 and falling in love with her then. She would have been 13 and 3 years old at those times.

Kendall ran to court to request a restraining order, and the judge granted it. Hummel must cease all contact and stay at least 100 yards away from Kendall.
