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!

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Bruce Jenner

Tells Diane Sawyer

'Farewell to Bruce'

4/8/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Diane Sawyer InterviewBruce Jenner will put his male persona to rest for good when he appears on Diane Sawyer's two hour special, sources connected to Bruce and the production tell TMZ.

We're told Jenner views the show as "a farewell to Bruce." He will "present himself" as a woman publicly for the first time. But it's not about his look -- it's about his mental state and his journey.

Our sources say Bruce does NOT reveal his new name, or dress like a woman on camera. Nevertheless, we're told Bruce sees the interview as the most significant event associated with his sex change -- more significant than the surgical procedures that will get him there. 

Bruce will chronicle his life from age 5, where he identified as a woman. Jenner -- who did numerous interviews for the special over a period of time -- talks about the difficulties he's had in life living as a man but not feeling like one. He also spends significant time talking about the impact his decision to have a sex change has had on his family.

Bruce realizes he has already become a target for people who either don't understand why he's transitioning or those who have outright contempt for it. But he's doing the interview to both free himself and educate the public so others in his position don't have to go through the pain.

Our sources say some of the most compelling moments in the show -- which airs on ABC on April 24th -- are when Bruce talks about "mundane things" that will change in his new life -- day-to-day things that will change.

Kanye West

Settles Paparazzi Beatdown Case with Apology

EXCLUSIVE

0407-kanye-daniel-shaking-hands-tmz-nowm-01

Kanye West has settled the civil lawsuit filed by the photog he assaulted at LAX ... TMZ has learned.

Kanye and Daniel Ramos shook hands as the case was put to bed.

TMZ broke the story, Kanye was criminally charged with misdemeanor battery and pled no contest. He's currently on probation.

According to Ramos' lawyer, Gloria Allred, one term of the settlement was an apology from Kanye to Ramos. We don't know if any money changed hands. 

Allred says, "We believe that this case sent an important message. Celebrities are not above the law, and they have no right to physically attack someone simply because they were asked a question."

Kylie Jenner

Gives Kendall the Ole Reach Around

[VIDEO]

4/6/2015 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner let her fingers do some walking down her sister Kendall Jenner's shorts, and then -- because she's a giver -- posted it on social media for the world to see.  

The Snapchat looks like it's behind the scenes of a photo shoot ... and shows the sisters doing a lot of sexually charged goofing around -- and then it gets all touchy feely.

For some reason 17-year-old Kylie reaches around her big sister's waist and then heads south. Way south. Kendall let's out a shocked, "Kylie, ohhh?!"

As Principal Rooney put it ... "So, that's how it is in their family." 

Bruce Jenner

Kris and the Girls

Won't Mess Up My Big Interview

4/6/2015 10:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0406-bruce-jenner-and-daughters-tmz-2bBruce Jenner will not have his spotlight jacked by Kris or the girls, because they will be thousands of miles away when his big ABC special airs.

Diane Sawyer's two hour interview -- titled "Bruce Jenner -- The Interview"-- will air April 24th, the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. We're told the women will be in Armenia, although for some reason they're saying the visit isn't tied to the anniversary.

Nonetheless, it won't be easy for the Kardashian women to throw in their two cents.

As we reported, Sawyer's interview is intimate and, we're told, really compelling. Bruce goes through everything -- from his early years identifying as a woman, to the present where he is deep into the transformation.

Bruce Jenner

Cover-Up During Hot Malibu Hike

4/6/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce_Jenner-Easter_Hike-Nails-GALLERY-LAUNCH_X17-09Bruce Jenner took a nature hike Sunday in Malibu ... and there's something about his choice of clothing that seems to validate stories that he's gone under the knife for breast enhancement. 

It was downright hot this weekend in Malibu and everywhere else in SoCal. Bruce was wearing shorts, but he bundled up almost completely from the waist up with a heavy sweatshirt, a hoodie and extremely big sunglasses. And he's sporting red nails.

We're told Bruce has been undergoing hormone therapy for nearly 2 years. Patients are not supposed to get breast enhancement surgery while undergoing hormone therapy, because during recovery there's an elevated danger of stroke and heart attack.  

The hormone therapy, we're told, has run its course, and a month after it ends it's safe to get augmentation surgery. 

We're told Bruce's interview with Diane Sawyer -- where he'll talk intimately about his decision -- is almost completed, and it's supposed to air this month.

Kanye West

I'm Hyundai-ing

Over My Post-Dinner Ride

4/6/2015 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is NOT how Kanye West typically rolls, but he wrapped up a fancy Malibu dinner by leaving in a HYUNDAI -- and you can tell he died a little inside while doing it. 

Kanye and Kim Kardashian left dinner at Nobu Saturday night, and while waiting at the valet ... Kanye starts grinning from ear-to-ear because he knows what's about to go down.

A Hyundai Elantra -- cost about $18k -- pulls up ... Kanye puts Kim in the backseat, and he jumps in the front passenger seat. Watch the look on his face -- really says it all. Now, Yeezy isn't cutting costs -- looks like the whip (with sweet sport rims wheel covers) belongs to a friend or assistant. 

$18k is probably the cost of 2 headlamps on Kanye's $400k Lambo Aventador.

FUN FACT: The affordable car line hasn't gotten a plug like this since Kanye wrote, "Win a Super Bowl and drive off in a Hyundai."  

Kendall Jenner

Getting a Rise Out of Easter

4/5/2015 11:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-kardashian-easter-AKM-01The Kardashian klan celebrated Easter Sunday wearing all white ... some less than others.

Kris, Khloe and Kendall all went to West Hills Church in the San Fernando Valley, along with Kris' BF Corey Gamble. A tattered Kanye, Kim and North West also showed. And the non-dating Kylie was front and center with her non-boyfriend Tyga and his son King.

0405-SUB-kardashian-easter-AKM-01Kendall didn't wear a full outfit to church, and she wore even less for her Instagram photo wishing people a happy Easter.

Praise the lord.

Kylie Jenner

Does A Black About Face

4/5/2015 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-kylie-jenner-black-face-INSTAGRAM-01Kylie Jenner pulled a Julianne Hough by posting pics of herself which appear to show her in black face ... and people are pissed.

Kylie originally posted the pics Saturday night, saying, "What I wish I looked like all the time."  

She got backlash from folks who felt she crossed the line with black face, so Kylie deleted the pics, re-uploaded them and wrote, "This is a black light and neon lights.  People lets all calm down."

Her response is not particularly responsive, so we gotta ask ...
