Kylie Jenner

DWI

Driving While Instagramming

5/4/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0504-kylie-jenner-instagramKylie Jenner did her dad no favors by posting a pic she took of herself driving on an L.A. freeway ... at the same time Bruce is under investigation for a fatal car accident he caused by being inattentive.

The 17-year-old posted the POV shot Sunday -- bragging about her Calabasas roots and adding, "I'll probably die here." Considering her dad's situation ... the freeway pic could be taken another way.

Kylie's driving decisions should have absolutely nothing to do with Bruce, but the reality is ... prosecutors go after people for all sorts of reasons, and one involves sending messages. If the D.A. thinks the whole family flaunts the laws of the road, it can't be good for Bruce.

And don't forget, she's already being sued for a car accident she allegedly caused just a few weeks after getting her license. 

Bottom line -- this is not a good look.

Bruce Jenner

Sued for Wrongful Death

In Car Crash

5/1/2015 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Crash LawsuitBruce Jenner has just been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit by the stepchildren of the woman who died in the Malibu car crash ... TMZ has learned.

The 2 adult stepkids of Kim Howe have filed a lawsuit, claiming Bruce was "careless and negligent" when he slammed into Howe's Lexus on PCH  back in February, causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer.

As TMZ reported, law enforcement sources say video of the crash squarely lays blame on Bruce for being inattentive. They say he just wasn't looking when he struck the Lexus.

The lawsuit claims Bruce was speeding, however, that contradicts what law enforcement told us ... that Bruce was driving below the speed limit.

And as we reported, the 2 stepkids had virtually no relationship with Kim, and any damages they claim for her loss might be extremely hard to prove. They claim loss of affection, but friends who were close to Kim say there was no affection at all.  Kim had no other living relatives.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is still investigating the crash, and the file will be sent over to the L.A. County D.A. for possible prosecution, although from what we hear, it's unlikely prosecutors will file.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

GET BENCHED

Forced to Wait for a Table!

5/1/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501_kim_kardashian_kanye_west_waiting_sushi_launch2The folks at Shibuya Sushi have cojones the size of Kim Kardashian's butt cheeks ... because they had the chutzpah to make KK and Kanye West sit outside and actually WAIT FOR A TABLE. The humanity!!!

The couple stopped off in Calabasas after Kim's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" ... thinking they'd be able to grab a quick bite to eat. But the restaurant was full and Kimye was forced to hit the bench out front and wait ... for a whopping 30 minutes!

To add insult to injury, when they finally got seated ... it was at a table by the window which ain't great when you're photographed as much as they are.

FYI ... Shibuya Sushi is very well-reviewed on Yelp, but these pics are the best advertising ever.

Our sushi is so good, even Kimye will wait for it!

Kim Kardashian

Hey, Bruce ...

Hands Off My Glam Team!

5/1/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian will support Bruce Jenner in any way she can during his transition ... except when it comes to the people who make HER look good.

KK was a guest Thursday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and talked about how Bruce has been doing since last week's big interview.

Bruce specifically called out Kim during his Diane Sawyer interview  ... saying she's been the most supportive of all his children. But Kim told Jimmy her help was limited to just her and not her "glam team."

A girl cannot be expected to part with her glam team.

Bruce Jenner

Ex-Wives By His Side

4/30/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Jenner Ex Wives PhotoBruce Jenner got support from 2 of his ex-wives as they watched the west coast feed of the Diane Sawyer special, but if you think Kris Jenner's absence is meaningful, you'd be wrong.

Linda Thompson, Bruce's second wife and former GF of Elvis, belatedly posted the pic for an op-ed piece she had posted hours after the interview aired. Thompson is writing her memoir and she included intimate details about her marriage to Bruce in the piece.

The pic also features first wife Chrystie Crownover, who was married to Jenner when he won gold in the Olympics. They all watched the west coast feed at daughter Casey's house.

The reason Kris isn't in the pic ... her family and Bruce all watched the east coast feed of the special 3 hours earlier.

Erick Sermon

Hip-Hop Is a No Bruce Jenner Zone

... That's Not Our Culture

4/29/2015 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Message to any transgender rappers -- do NOT follow Bruce Jenner's lead, 'cause hip-hop culture's not ready for that kinda thing ... at least according to hip-hop legend Erick Sermon.

We got Sermon -- one half of rap pioneers EPMD -- in NYC, and when we asked if hip-hop would welcome a transgender performer at this point ... he went on a rant. 

Sermon said, "They're taking the culture too far. It's just too far to be going."

You've gotta watch ... it's a bit puzzling -- Sermon criticizes Bruce for the timing of his announcement ... then applauds him for potentially helping transgenders who might be suicidal. 

As for the whole transgender rapper thing -- check out his Michael Sam metaphor.

It's complicated.

Bruce Jenner

Docuseries Both Serious and Humorous ...

Learning to Golf with Breasts

4/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner
's docuseries will have plenty of serious, eye-opening moments, but there will also be plenty of fun, including how Bruce will adapt his golf game with newly-formed breasts. 

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ, the goal of the 8-part docuseries is to educate people and provide hope and inspiration for those going through the challenges Bruce has faced. But as one source put it, "If all you have is a downer, you don't have a show."  

So we're told the show will have a balance, showing "the dark moments, the lighthearted moments and moments that are just plain hilarious."

Our production sources say Bruce's golf game will be front and center. Bruce is a great golfer, and apparently it's not an easy transition to swing with breasts.

There will also be a social aspect to the show. You'll recall Bruce mentioned he sometimes has wine and cheese parties with his girlfriends. That's on the table for the program, although nothing is set in stone.

We're also told the cosmetic side of Bruce's transition will be represented.  

As a production source said, "There will be a happy medium. Bruce has a great sense of humor and it will be showcased. But the show will deal with the very serious issues Bruce is committed to showing."

Our opinion ... that's exactly what the show should be -- it's not a tragic story, it's a life story.

Kids Deliver Shocking News

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

4/27/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.

Khloe and Lamar

Not Ready for Divorce

The Door's Open a Crack

4/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

The Kardashians Are Behind Bruce Jenner

100 PERCENT

4/27/2015 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is absolutely no dissent in the Kardashian camp when it comes to Bruce Jenner ... they all support him completely ... so says Kim Kardashian

KK hit up the "Today" show Monday morning to talk about Bruce's moving and heartfelt interview with Diane Sawyer. She told Matt Lauer the family is still adjusting to things -- like what pronoun to use when discussing Bruce.  

She also says it's all very new, and they're still adjusting.

Kanye West

Music Execs Made Him

Feel Bruce Jenner's Pain

4/26/2015 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426-kim-kardashian-kanye-west-bruce-jenner-TMZ-ABC-01Kanye West was set up to play the hero -- helping Kim Kardashian better understand Bruce Jenner's transition -- thanks to a bunch of crap he himself had to take on while coming up in the music biz.

As Jenner told Diane Sawyer ... Kanye lead Kim to a breakthrough by telling her everyone has to be true to themselves. Sources tell us Kanye was referring to how music execs made him feel about his identity in the rap game.

We're told Kanye felt like he stood out when his career was taking off -- he was a rapper who also had strong interests in other fields, such as fashion. But he felt like the honchos ignored his true identity, and were constantly trying to mold him into someone they could market better.

Sources say Kanye explained to Kim that standing up to those execs was the only thing that eventually brought him true happiness.

Pretty savvy on Kanye's part ... to recognize Bruce going through the same thing he did, and then convey that to Kim.

Welcome to the Good Life.

Bruce Jenner's Ex-Playmate Friend

Breaks Down in Tears ...

He Doesn't Realize His Own Power

4/26/2015 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

One of Bruce Jenner's friends -- a former Playboy Playmate -- couldn't hold back her emotions about his transition ... and the impact he's having on society.

Deborah Driggs -- Miss March 1990 -- told us she's known Bruce for years, and admitted outside Spago Saturday night ... she couldn't hold back the water works when we asked her about the ABC special.

Watch ... Deborah's explanation about why she thinks Bruce is saving lives is pretty moving. She's also, we suspect, echoing the feelings of countless people.

By the way, Deborah has a golden connection to Bruce. They became friends though her ex-husband Mitch Gaylord -- the first male American gymnast to score a perfect 10 ... which earned him Gold in the '84 Olympics.

Blac Chyna

Tyga's Been After My Ass FOR MONTHS

4/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-blac-chyna-butt-crack-instagram-01Blac Chyna says Tyga didn't just text her out of the blue this week trying to get back with her ... she says he's been making that play for 7 months.

Sources connected with Blac Chyna tell TMZ ... the text -- in which he said "I want to be with u" -- was the last in a flurry of texts, conversations and private face-to-face meetings in which he made his play to reconcile their relationship.

Sources close to Chyna says she never believed he was physically with Kylie Jenner -- partly because she's 17, and partly because they were all neighbors and close to the Kardashian family.  She says she believed Tyga when he called out the media for suggesting he was dating Kylie, but doesn't believe it anymore.

Blac Chyna posted Tyga's texts out of anger, but she claims she wants nothing to do with him anymore. It's complicated by the fact that they have a kid together.

As for Tyga, he has never said he's with Kylie and in the past has denied it ... but he's recently insinuated it, and even put it in writing.
