Kobe Bryant Good Genes Or Good Docs?

8/28/2016 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0826_genes_kobe_launchKobe Bryant’s good looks are clearly not retiring!

Here’s a 19-year-old baby Black Mamba on the court back in 1997 (left) and 19 years later ... the recently retired Lakers legend -- who turned 38 earlier this week -- at an awards show last month (right). 

“Mamba out.”

Pregnancy Guru's Child What to Expect When ... You're Getting Divorced

8/28/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_amma_bing_facebook_gettyThe woman who wrote THE quintessential guide to pregnancy apparently couldn't pass on the same wisdom for marriage -- 'cause her kid just filed for divorce.

Emma Bing -- daughter of Heidi Murkoff, who authored "What To Expect When You're Expecting" -- is looking to split from her musician husband, Refayat Ali. Emma was the bun in the oven that inspired Heidi to write the book.

Emma wants primary custody of their 3-year-old son, plus spousal support from Refayat ... which seems odd considering her mom's work is a bestseller and was even made into a movie (in other word ... her family's loaded).

Of course, that dough belongs to Heidi ... but we're guessing Emma won't be left hanging out to dry, no matter how the judge rules.

Justin doesn't seem too shy to show some skin either, dropping trou right next to a butler. 

Who needs Instagram, anyway?

Colin Kaepernick Sits During Anthem I'm Not Gonna Show Pride To A Country That 'Oppresses Black People'

8/27/2016 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-colin-kaepernick-gettyColin Kaepernick is defending his action to stay seated during the national anthem Friday night, saying he's got no desire to support a country that oppresses minorities. 

Kaepernick has taken a TON of heat since the pregame ceremony against Green Bay in which he stayed seated on the bench during the anthem's entirety.

0827-colin-kaepernick-twitterThe 49ers QB has allegedly since come out and told reporters, "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color."

He continued ... "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

The NFL released a statement, saying, "Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the national anthem."

8/27/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-launch-kanye-west-art-exhibit-gettyWorry not ... the Kardashians are still alive and well, and so is Taylor Swift, Donald Trump and Chris Brown. They're all silicone and part of Kanye's big L.A. art exhibit. Problem was ... Kanye was in NYC.

The art exhibit features the life size celeb figures from 'Ye's "Famous" video  ... each was handcrafted over several months and equipped with breathing mechanisms to give them a lifelike feel. We're also told the hair on each figure was placed one at a time ... talk about detail. 


So check out 'Ye's solution to being physically MIA ... it's super awesome. Kanye appeared in robot fashion, manipulating the device 2,500 miles away with a joystick so he could chat up the room.

The new couple were out in NYC Friday night -- and one thing's for sure -- if Mac was trying to be incognito, it didn't work.

8/27/2016 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lance Bass delivered another crushing blow to anyone hoping to hear new music from 'NYSNC any time soon ... and it's all because Justin Timberlake is just way too famous.

Paris Hilton I Feel Bad Kim and I Burned Tara Reid

8/27/2016 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton has regrets over humiliating Tara Reid in one of the most epic videos in the history of TMZ.

It's the 10-year anniversary of Paris and an unknown -- Kim Kardashian -- sauntering into Hyde nightclub in WeHo, as Paris' former BFF and then enemy Tara Reid watched behind the velvet rope. Paris gave Tara a stare will live in infamy.

But on her way into LAX Friday, Paris said she feels bad about the whole thing.

Too bad there was no 10-year anniversary reunion of the Lindsay Lohan/Brandon Davis/Paris Hilton "Firecrotch" video.

You'll remember ... Wade took the ESPYS stage a few months ago with Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul to spread a message of peace and to end senseless violence. 

Cops are questioning two men in connection with Aldridge's death.
