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 Smith vs. Paris

4/18/2015 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0418-jaden-smith-paris-hilton-pcn-akm-01 Jaden Smith and Paris Hilton got all gussied up Friday at Coachella.

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."

The Chicken Made Me Do It!!

Fails at Being Poor

0416-gwyneth-paltrow-01-composite

Gwyneth Paltrow lasted 4 days as a poor person, caving to cravings that included chicken and black licorice.

The Goopster attempted to live on $29 a week, like someone on food stamps. Her food selections were not exactly the staple of the needy -- cilantro, avocados, scallions, kale and limes.

But it all went to hell when she just had to have chicken, fresh vegetables and more. She posted on Goop, "in fully transparency ... half a bag of black licorice."

Gwyneth gave herself a C minus.

On Wednesday, her rep said ..."She already finished the challenge last week." The rep never mentioned she fell 3 days short.

But Gwyneth herself admits she's really bad at poor.

Investigating Reporter

Who Berated Tow Truck Employee [UPDATE]

Exclusive Details

update_graphic_red_bar2:10 PM PT -- ESPN just suspended McHenry for one week.

1:30 PM PT -- McHenry issued an apology on Twitter, saying, "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to be respectful and take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."

update_grey_gray_barESPN tells TMZ Sports ... the network has launched an investigation into reporter Britt McHenry -- after footage surfaced showing her recently BERATING a towing company employee.  

The footage is shocking -- appearing to show McHenry GOING OFF on a worker while trying to get her car out of an impound lot in Virginia ... ripping the worker's appearance, education and financial status.

Oh, and she dropped the epic, "I’m in the news sweetheart, I will f***ing sue this place."

ESPN tells us, "We are aware of the recent exchange between Britt McHenry and a towing company employee. We are now reviewing the matter with her."

Marco Rubio

He's Not REALLY About Hip-Hop

... Says Hip-Hop Legend

4/16/2015 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Liking hip-hop and LIVING hip-hop are 2 very different things according to rap legend Ali Shaheed Muhammad ... who's calling out Sen. Marco Rubio for saying he's about that life.

The republican presidential hopeful talks a lot about his love of EDM and hip-hop -- says Nicki Minaj is his current fave, and he's recited Tupac and Biggie lyrics to our camera guys multiple times.

But we got Muhammad -- a former member of A Tribe Called Quest -- in L.A. Wednesday, and he's not buying into Rubio's hip-hop claims just yet. Check out Ali's take ... he says there's at least one policy Rubio's gotta change if he wants real street cred.

It's a risk for Sen. Rubio -- if you keep trying to cozy up to hip-hop voters, hip-hop might call you on it. 

Courtney Stodden's Boobs

Can We Come Out and Play?

4/15/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Stodden had a serious wardrobe malfunction ... her top didn't fly off as planned, so she just jiggled it away.

It's so thirsty it's almost endearing. Courtney was throwing a football in Marina del Rey Monday and you see the disappointment in her face when her bikini top misses its cue.  

Watch the video -- in fact watch it several times -- as Courtney vigorously shimmies it off.

Once it falls, you hear her feign shock in her finest Valley "Oh my Gaud!!!"

Even if you're not a fan, she definitely deserves the boobie prize for this stunt.

The Game

Allegedly Attacks Another Guy

Connected to Basketball Brawl

4/12/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Game allegedly attacked a photog who was part of a team serving him with a lawsuit for allegedly assaulting a cop ... lots of allegeds here.

TMZ broke the story ... Game got into it with an off duty cop during a basketball game last month and sucker punched the guy.  The cop has sued game, claiming the punch may have caused brain damage.

But lawsuits must get served, so Saturday afternoon a process server went to Game's Calabasas home to get the job done.  He brought along a guy to record the service on video.

Apparently Game didn't much like the spotlight, because the photog says the rapper attacked him, pushing him to the ground.

The guy called 911, cops rushed over but by that time Game was gone.  So the photog filed a police report for battery.

Basketball ... not always fun.

Kendall Jenner

Movin' and Awkwardly Groovin'

At Coachella

4/11/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendall Jenner is painfully white, and we're not talking skin tone.

Check her out doing what looks at first like the Monster Mash Friday at Coachella. The moves changed, but not necessarily for the better.

Kendall was there with some chick friends ... no trace of Justin Bieber.

Big Sean to Justin Bieber

Hands Off Ariana

... Or Else!!!

4/9/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

update_graphic_red_bar9:45 AM PT -- Big Sean just weighed in again, and tells TMZ ... someone, other than Bieber, pulled a fast one on him.update_grey_gray_barJustin Bieber got a little handsy with Ariana Grande during a performance Wednesday night ... much to the dismay of her boyfriend Big Sean, who went on Twitter and threatened him.

Bieber made a surprise appearance at Grande's concert at the Forum in L.A. Wednesday, where the two performed "As Long As You Love Me." Toward the end of the song, Justin calls her over, tells her to stand in front of him ... and throws his arms around her. 

It's pretty apparent ... Ariana's not having it and she quickly disentangles.  

But apparently not quick enough for Big Sean, who was in Canada -- and caught wind of Bieber's antics through social media. He tweeted (and later deleted), "This kid is about to learn not to touch my girl like that. Beliebe that."

0409-big-sean-tweetBieber himself, oblivious to the ruckus he caused, tweeted after the show, "Love the stage. Thanks for having me @ArianaGrande and thanks LA. Gotta tour again soon :)"
