Kardashian Fireworks

Not Our Fault!

Officials Play Blame Game

8/26/2015 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826_james_harden_klhoe_kardashian_getty_tmz-2The U.S. Coast Guard and L.A. County Sheriff's Department are stuck between a rock and a Kardashian place ... after Khloe's explosive birthday gift for her BF James Harden.

TMZ has learned both agencies are getting flooded with complaints about the massive fireworks display that went off at midnight, waking up thousands of people. So, who's to blame? Let the finger pointing begin. 

According to our law enforcement sources ... the Coast Guard informed the Sheriff on Monday -- via email -- that Boulevard Management (Kris Jenner's production co.) would be setting off fireworks at 11:59 PM. The CG also made it clear NO permit was necessary. 

The Sheriff's Dept. says because the boat was 100 feet outside the breakwater ... the CG was the primary enforcement agency. As for noise violations? Both agencies agree that falls under the Sheriff's watch -- but the Sheriff's Dept. says it would only check a noise problem IF the Coast Guard reported it.

Here's why that doesn't add up. We're told at least one Sheriff's official in the area heard the noise himself -- plus, there were dozens of 911 complaints about it. So, the Sheriff's Dept. knew and did nothing.  

Khloe Kardashian & James Harden

Set Off HUGE Fireworks

... City Officials PISSED!

update_graphic_red_bar1:00 PM PT -- We've now learned Khloe and James did NOT need a permit to set off the fireworks. They did need the Coast Guard to sign off on the safety of the display, and they got that.update_grey_gray_barKhloe Kardashian and James Harden threw their own personal 4th of July with a GIANT fireworks display that woke up thousands of residents -- and city officials are scrambling to find out HOW it got approved.

The thunderous fireworks show -- visible from multiple towns along the oceanfront -- went on for 15 minutes at the stroke of midnight. TMZ has learned the whole thing was a yacht party for Harden's 26th birthday, and it was all on the up and up. 

Law enforcement sources tell us a permit was issued to James and someone in the Kardashian family. Khloe had bragged about throwing the party for her BF, but nobody expected this kind of over-the-top display.

In fact, there's a mini-conspiracy theory brewing. We've spoken to the L.A. department that normally issues permits for fireworks in the marina ... and they did not sign off, and never would for such a display on a Tuesday night. We're told the display was far enough off shore to be outside of city jurisdiction.

We also spoke to an LA. City Councilman who is angry and trying to figure out who exactly OK'd the fireworks. One law enforcement official told us ... in 5 years he's never heard of a permit being issued for fireworks like this on a non-holiday.

It really is their world, the rest of us are just living in it.


Rapping About Penetrating Kylie?

breaking news

Tyga's got the blueprint ... brag about having sex with your juuust 18-year-old GF Kylie Jenner -- and everyone will pay attention to your new music.

Tyga just dropped a new mixtape, which includes the song, "Stimulated" -- which includes lyrics like: "They say she young ... I shoulda waited ... She a big girl, dawg ... When she stimulated."

There's more ... like a direct reference to "penetration." The "young" line makes it seem like Tyga's talking about Kylie, but who knows?

After he dropped "Pleazer" -- the one where he rapped about "vagina juice" -- he insisted the track was NOT about Kylie, but some other random chick.

Scott Disick

Home Boy?

8/23/2015 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822-scott-disick-poolside-INSTAGRAM-01There are signs of a possible reconciliation between Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.

Scott has been posting pics of him back at the family home in Calabasas, chilling at the pool and lording over his brood.

Scott wrote, "Love coming home and seeing my little girl napping and looking this cute."

The post could simply signal visitation, but he certainly made himself at home.


Kim Kardashian

Fully Loaded

... With Toys and Mermaids

8/23/2015 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim Kardashian hit up a Toys"R"Us in L.A. Saturday, and it looked a segment from that TV show, "Supermarket Sweep."

Kim's nephew Mason tagged along as she loaded her cart with goodies.  She bought some mermaid toys, which probably has North West and Penelope's name on it, because the 2 little girls came face-to-face with a mermaid earlier in the week in St. Barts.

0822-SUB-kim-kardashian-mermiads-INSTAGRAM-01It's good to be her kid ... and her niece.

WWE Superstar Natalya

I Wanna Tag Team Kim & Khloe

8/21/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian sisters are being called out by one of the biggest female stars in wrestling ... WWE superstar Natalya ... who says she's DYING to hit the mat with Kim and Khloe.  

But here's the thing ... the "Total Divas" star doesn't really wanna beat up K&K ... sounds like she just wants to roll around with 'em for a little bit. Can you blame her? 

Dear Vince McMahon ... please make this happen. 


Larry Flynt Jr.

Kylie Jenner Can't Hustle Me ...

That's a $1 Million Ass, At Most!

8/21/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner should snatch the $10 million to do a sex tape and never look back ... because no less a XXX authority than Larry Flynt Jr. says that's way more than she's worth on the open porn market.

The Hustler king was at Craig's Thursday night ... and we asked about the offer Vivid Entertainment has on the table for the 18-year-old to go all "Kim K. Superstar."

Larry laughs off the ass-tronomical figure, but does admit there's a market for Kylie -- and floats a hypothetical offer for her to do the nasty for Hustler.

He also takes a jab at Vivid's honcho. Porn-on-porn violence ... it's gotta stop.

Kourtney K. & Scott Disick

The Single Life

Suits Them

8/21/2015 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-kourtney-kardashian-fame-flynetKourtney Kardashian ignored the issue of tanlines and donned a strappy bikini as she relaxed Thursday on the beach in St. Barts.  

Meanwhile in Mexico, Scott Disick hung out with Joe Francis and Darren Dzienciol, who co-owns 1 OAK.

Being single seems to agree with both of them.



Kris Jenner

I Put Weatherman On Blast ...

But I Didn't Get Him Fired

8/20/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820-kris-jenner-garth-kemp-tmz-apKris Jenner has a lot of pull in Los Angeles ... but just because she unleashed her wrath on a longtime LA weatherman over social media, doesn't mean she got him fired despite all the rumors.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Kris had nothing to do with Garth Kemp's departure from his 17-year-long position as the KABC weatherman ... he actually left to pursue his dreams of being a voice over actor.

Rumors were flying around like crazy that Garth was forced out by head honchos at his ABC affiliated station because of Kris.

Back in June KJ put him on blast to millions of her Instagram followers ... calling him a bully after he talked smack about Kim and Kanye not having talent. We're told Kris only fired back on IG ... she never called the station and didn't want him to get fired.

Mama bird defending her family is one thing, but forcing a guy to get fired is something completely different.

Kylie Jenner & Tyga

Feel the Rush

Dripping Wet in St. Barts

8/20/2015 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820-kylie-tyga-fame-flynetKylie Jenner has NO FEAR when it comes to diving in with Tyga -- the couple did some extreme hand holding down in St. Barts.

We're downplaying ... but this actually looks like one of the cooler things they've done since going all PDA after her 18th birthday. Tyga and Kylie went flyboarding during the family vacay on the Caribbean island-- and it looks like they're nailing it already.  

The flyboarding, that is.

Kourtney Kardashian

Bares Bangin'

St. Barts Bikini Bod

8/19/2015 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0818-khourtney-kardashian-instagramKourtney Kardashian's Instagram bikini body is like a Drake diss song ... at this point, she's just kicking a man while he's down. 

This latest one was snapped while on vacation in St. Barts, with Kourt wearing a swimsuit that seemed to perfectly match her backdrop. 

She should have captioned this pic "Back to Back." 


Kylie Jenner And Tyga

18 Makes Relationship Fair Game

On Reality Show

8/18/2015 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0818-kylie-jenner-tyga-khloe-kendal-FAMEFLYNET-01Kylie Jenner and Tyga are now fair game for producers of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" ... and it took no time at all for the cameras to capture their relationship.

The show didn't really touch on the relationship, because Kylie was 17 last season. But one birthday makes a big difference, so 'KUWTK' cameras were all rolling Tuesday during the family vacation in St. Barths.

Tyga and Kylie weren't flaunting it before ... but now they're selling it.

Kylie Jenner

I'm Putting My Range Rover Out to Pasture

8/18/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-MAIN-kylie-jenner-car-sold-INSTAGRAM-01Kylie Jenner has car problems ... she's got so many they don't fit in her garage, so she's getting rid of the Range Rover to make way for her new Ferrari and G-Wagon.

Kylie has a 2014 Range Rover Autobiography, which she's now selling through a private broker for $173k. Financing is NOT available. It's a cash only deal.

Kylie bought the Rover for $195k new and spent $25k tricking it out. It has 6,000 miles.  

The freshly-minted 18-year-old has cars coming out of her ears. Tyga gave her the $260,000 Ferrari for her birthday, and she bought herself a new G-Wagon which is in the shop getting upgrades. And there's that red G-Wagon that was owned by Blac Chyna that Kylie drove to her birthday dinner, although she says she just borrowed it from Tyga.

So wanna buy a used car?
