Kendall Jenner bolted out of the Met Gala with Michael B. Jordan in VERY close proximity -- as in, close enough to possibly be hooking up!
Blows Off Campus Ban ...
If You Hire Me, Kylie's Coming Too
5/5/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tyga performed at Cal State Fullerton's Spring Concert this past Saturday, and according to our sources ... concert organizers told him he should NOT bring 17-year-old Kylie to the show.
We're told not only did the university find their relationship questionable, but the show was 18 and older. Tyga must have known he had the school by the balls -- they couldn't afford to bring in another act at the last minute -- because he went ahead and brought her anyway.
While he was performing ... she was chilling at a table full of chicken wings and other appetizers -- which we're told Tyga suddenly demanded when he arrived ... an hour late.
Organizers didn't want to risk him bailing completely ...so, we're told they just let it go.
Kylie's presence didn't go unnoticed by the students, with one tweeting, "CSUF said guests must be 18 or over to enter spring concert but Tyga brought Kylie as his guest."
As we reported ... Tyga ran into the same situation during a gig in November, but opted to boycott the club. The couple put their age issues aside Monday as they flew out of LAX -- airlines don't care if he travels with a minor.
We're Looking for a Nicer Rack
5/5/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Kardashians and Sears are parting ways ... TMZ has learned, and sources connected with the family say they're bailing because they believe the department store is a sinking ship.
The Kardashians and Sears struck a big deal back in 2011 for the Kardashian Kollection, which features all sorts of apparel and jewelry.
By all accounts, the venture was successful. The best evidence we could find ... in 2013 the Kardashian fashion empire raked in $600 million and the family got a $30 million cut.
We've learned the deal ended earlier this year and the store has been selling off the remaining items, and recently the store has been pulling the items from the shelves.
Sears tells TMZ the parting of ways was mutual, but our Kardashian sources say the family felt Sears wasn't stable, having closed over 200 stores last year alone and suffering a $159 million loss in the last quarter of 2014.
We're told the Kardashians have made a new deal with a major retailer and they will announce the partnership soon.

Asses Meet at the Met ...

KK acknowledged the moment by posting this homage to their posteriors ... snapped by none other than Kanye West.
There's no wrong answer, yet we have to ask ...
Kylie and Kendall
Don't You Dare Use Our Names!!!
5/4/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
WARNING TO KYLIE MINOGUE OR ANYONE ELSE NAMED KYLIE ... YOU MAY NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO USE YOUR FIRST NAME BECAUSE A 17-YEAR-OLD THINKS IT SHOULD BE HERS AND HERS ALONE.
It's all part of the Kardashian's blitzkrieg campaign. We've learned Kylie Jenner has filed an application last month to trademark her first name to "entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture." Kylie also wants to mark her territory for personal appearances "by a celebrity, actress and model."
Although someone might theoretically use the name "Kylie" with a different font, K.J.'s lawyers could swoop in and argue it creates confusion among consumers. So Kylie Minogue, move over.
BTW ... Kendall has filed an application to trademark her first name for the same purposes.
So watch your ass, Ken Doll.
Driving While Instagramming
5/4/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie 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.
Sued for Wrongful Death
In Car Crash
5/1/2015 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bruce 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
Forced to Wait for a Table!
5/1/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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!
Hey, Bruce ...
Hands Off My Glam Team!
5/1/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Ex-Wives By His Side
4/30/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Hip-Hop Is a No Bruce Jenner Zone
... That's Not Our Culture
4/29/2015 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Docuseries Both Serious and Humorous ...
Learning to Golf with Breasts
4/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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
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.
