Kris Humphries

'Apologizes'

'I Was Too Vague'

4/25/2015 8:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0425-kris-humphries-tmz-01

Kris Humphries seemed pretty clear about Bruce Jenner when he said last night he got outta Dodge just in time, but he says he's now apologizing for being "vague."

Humphries -- who was married to Kim Kardashian and then fought the divorce tooth and nail -- tweeted last night, "Man, I'm glad I got out when I did #gottadoyou."

He just tweeted again, "I have and always will support Bruce hence #gottadoyou. Now recognize I was too vague and sincerely apologize for the way this came across."

0425-sub-kris-humphries-post-twitter-01It seems he's now saying he supports Jenner but is glad he's out of the Kardashian magnetic pull ... or something like that.

Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.

Jameis Winston

Publix Calls B.S.

New Crab Legs Excuse Is Fishy

4/22/2015 11:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-jameis-winston-publix-getty-01Either Jameis Winston lied to cops ... or he's lying now ... because his story about why he took crab legs from Publix has radically changed ... so says reps for the grocery store. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for the market ... who tells us they heard Jameis' explanation for the crab leg theft on ESPN, but insist his story isn't adding up. 

FYI -- Winston appeared on the docuseries "Draft Academy" last night and said a Publix employee had "hooked him up" with a free birthday cake in the past and had promised more free stuff the next time Winston came into the market. That's why he claims he took the crab legs without paying. 

But Publix says ... after the 2014 arrest, they launched an internal investigation and "never came across any evidence that suggests there was an arrangement that Mr. Winston or any other FSU athlete had with an employee."

There's more ... Publix also points out that when Winston was busted, he told police he had simply "forgot" to pay for the crab and didn't realize the mistake until he got home.

The rep for Publix continues ... "If Mr. Winston has new information about a person he had a deal with, we'd be happy to reopen the investigation."

But so far, Publix says ... "There is absolutely no information that corroborates Jameis' story."

Blac Chyna Kylie Jenner Lips

Blac Chyna has gone all high school on Kylie Jenner, posting a cartoonish pic of herself mocking the lip challenge of her nemesis.

Tyga must be chuckling ... his baby mama and current "girlfriend" embroiled in a lip lock.

But maybe it's Blac Chyna who wins this one. She posted a pic of wax lips -- same as what she's wearing in the photo -- which she says she'll be hawking on her fashion line website.

Lindsay Lohan

Makes Ass Of Herself

... In Arabic Debacle

Lindsay Lohan had her own little donkey show on Instagram today -- when she tried to be inspirational ... and came out looking like an ass.

In an effort to look worldly and wise, Lohan posted one of those "inspirational quotes" in Arabic ... along with the caption, "You're beautiful."

Problem is ... the actual translation is, "You're a donkey."

As The Main Ingredient would say ... "Everybody plays the mule ... sometimes."

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner Challengeupdate_graphic_red_barKylie finally responded to the trend, tweeting, "I'm not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look … I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look."update_grey_gray_barThe #kyliejennerchallenge has caused some of Kylie Jenner's super fans big problems ... and it's not just their giant lips.

It was bound to happen ... a day after the hashtag blew up online, complaints and pics of disturbing injuries from pissed fans who pushed the limits are now flooding social media.

Before you search #KylieJennerChallengeGoneWrong we have to warn you ... some of the injuries are EXTREMELY GRAPHIC ... ranging from simple bruises to extensive trauma requiring hospitalization.

Keep in mind Kylie never asked anyone to plump up but some of the results have been painful to say the least. Some recent tweets include ... "my lips bleeding and they hurt like hell" and "god help my lips."

Wladimir Klitschko, Hayden Panettiere

Someone's in Trouble

4/21/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_wladimir_klitschko_baby_beach_water_waves_launch_2Wladimir Klitschko may be the heavyweight champion of the world, but he's about to get his ass kicked by his 5' fiancee.

Wlad took baby Kaya out into the Miami beach surf, while Hayden Panettiere was doing 'GMA' in NYC.

It looks like fun and games, but we're guessing Hayden will have issues:

-- the baby doesn't have a life jacket

-- Wlad is clowning off balance in the surf, with Kaya in a precarious position

-- she's not wearing a hat in the Miami sun

That said, dad is no ordinary father at 6'6" and 246 lbs. Kaya's in good hands. Of course, Hayden might not see it that way. 

Good luck Wlad ... we're rooting for you!.

Kylie Jenner

Girls Want Her Fat Lips!!!

4/20/2015 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner pretty clearly has a fan base that wants her lips, whether they're real or not.

Truth be told, our office is divided. The guys think these girls in the video are mocking Kylie by putting their lips inside a bottle to swell them up, but the women in the office say the girls are trying to be just like the youngest Jenner. Since the men here have never been teenage girls, the women win.

The hashtag, #kyliejennerchallenge, is blowing up.

BTW Kylie has insisted in the past, "These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting ... Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16."

The Game

Cops and I Don't Mix Well

4/19/2015 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Game is in chill mode, temporarily hanging up his basketball jersey and definitely staying clear of cops on the court.

Game's had his troubles lately on the hardwood ... he punched an off-duty cop during a game last month after the 2 got into it.  The cop sued, and Game allegedly attacked a member of the team that served him with the lawsuit.  Police are also investigating the incident.

He makes it clear he's had his problems with cops ... not all of them, but certainly some.  Game acknowledges some cops are good, but he has a game plan when he gets close to those who aren't.

Britt McHenry

Divide At ESPN

Several Employees Want Her Fired

EXCLUSIVE

0417-britt-mchenry-instagram-01Not everyone at ESPN wants Britt McHenry back on the air -- with several employees (including on-air talent) telling us plain and simple -- "She should have been fired."

We spoke with a whole bunch of ESPN employees ... from producers to production people and even famous faces ... and not one person said they're down with the 1-week suspension. 

One high level producer tells us, "She's the worst. Hopefully she'll be fired soon."

Another person told us, "[What she did] reflects on all of us at ESPN. She will be fired soon. If not, I'll be shocked."

"She came off more than rude in that clip. It seems like she needs some humble pie," says another ESPN staffer ... "[ESPN] can find a million Britt McHenrys to replace her."

One famous ESPN'er (who also didn't want to be named) told us, "Put it like this, she's replaceable."

We reached out to Britt for comment -- but so far, it's radio silence. 

Who Wore it Better?

Jaden's choice seems ... a little on the frumpy side, while Paris is going for the swank.

So we gotta ask ...

Big Ang

Sister Makes Mea Culpa ...

Sorry, I Hit Up Fans for Cash

4/17/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0416_big_ang_tmzThe sister of "Mob Wives" star Big Ang thought she was doing a good thing by creating a donation page for medical costs, but quickly had second thoughts ... and is now apologizing to Ang's fans.

Janine Detore says "Mob Wives" fans were reaching out and asking how and where they could make donations to help Ang cover bills for her throat cancer treatment. So, Janine created a GoFundMe page. 

But after less than a day a fan wondered why a celeb was asking for money. Detore realized it was a good point. She tells us Ang and the fam can more than handle any expenses insurance doesn't cover -- so, she immediately disabled the page. 

Detore says they only got about $150 during the few hours the page was active. She adds, Big Ang had no idea the page was ever up. 

As for Ang's condition ... she's resting at home and doing very well -- but Janine says doctors are planning another surgery to remove her right lymph nodes ... as a precaution.

Britt McHenry

Tow Truck Company Fires Back

'It's Your Own Damn Fault'

4/16/2015 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0416_britt-mchenry_advanced_twitterThe woman on the receiving end of Britt McHenry's impound lot tirade is praised by her bosses -- who say they're PROUD of the way the employee kept her cool amid the ESPN reporter's attacks. 

As we previously reported, McHenry exploded on the impound lot attendant -- calling her an unattractive, uneducated loser. It was nasty evil stuff. 

TMZ Sports spoke with the manager of Advanced Towing in Arlington, Virginia who says ... "It's unfortunate that [our employee] had to withstand that."

"It wasn't [our employee's fault] that Britt's car was towed. It's her own fault. She was in the wrong. That's why she was towed."

"Now people can see what really happened. Sometimes you have to own up to your own actions."

As for the employee, the manager says -- "She's the kind of person we try to employ here. She handled this the right way. She kept her cool the whole time."

Britt has since apologized and ESPN has suspended her for a week. 

So, how did the tow company feel about her punishment? 

"Honestly, it doesn't matter what happens to her. It's irrelevant to us."
