Before this grinning guy was a hilarious Hollywood actor he was just another Creed inspired kid rocking some super sleek Oakley's in the Northwest. Can you guess who he is?
Sacha Baron Cohen & Isla Fisher
Holy Moses ...
It's A Boy!!
4/16/2015 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We've obtained a copy of the birth certificate -- filed with the L.A. County Dept. of Public Health -- and it says Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen was born on March 17.
It just came out last week they'd had the baby -- but they didn't say the name, sex or birth date.
MMBBC is the third child for Isla and the 'Borat' star. They have 2 daughters ... Olive, 7 and Elula, 4.
As for all the names, Isla's dad's name is Brian -- but we're at a loss on Montgomery and Moses ... outside of the 'Ten Commandments' guy.
Too Hot For No Crotch Zone
4/16/2015 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gigi Hadid might be the hottest young model on the scene -- which may explain why her crotch is pubic enemy #1 in Qatar. The government there is on a mission to block her dirty-dirty no-no below the belt body parts from mainstream magazines!
One Crappy Homecoming
You've Been Served!
4/16/2015 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West's goodwill tour to Armenia and the Middle East came to a sucky ending for him -- moments after touching down at LAX ... he got served with legal papers.
Kanye, Kim Kardashian and North flew back to L.A. Thursday and the scene was absolute chaos. While Yeezy was running the gauntlet -- with North in his arms -- he never saw the guy in a suit sneak up behind him.
As Kanye got into his waiting SUV ... the process server reached in behind him and tossed the papers onto one of the seats. Kim followed a few seconds later, when it appears someone threw the papers out of the vehicle. The process server did not reveal the nature of the legal action.
Two things to watch here: 1. Kanye really keeps his cool under pressure ... and 2. That process server is REALLY brave reaching past bodyguards and into Kanye's vehicle.
Model Sarah Stage
See, My BIG Baby Had ...
Plenty of Womb
4/16/2015 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
People don't want to believe model Sarah Stage gave birth to an 8 lb. baby -- especially since her belly only looked like it had a quarter pounder with cheese in it -- but here's photo proof of the big guy.
Sarah's son, James, is looking totally comfy and snug after his arrival on Tuesday. As we first told you ... James weighed in at 8 lbs. 7 oz, and 22 inches ... all above average measurements for newborns.
Sarah stirred controversy, disbelief, and probably some hatred -- when she posted selfies looking super skinny for any woman ... much less one who was 8-9 months pregnant.
We get the feeling she didn't mind the heat -- at least based on that lingerie pic she posted ... just HOURS before she officially attained MILF status.
The Chicken Made Me Do It!!
Fails at Being Poor
4/16/2015 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
'Love & Hip Hop' Star Jhonni Blaze
Co-Star Throws Shade ...
Helps Spread Stripper Fight Vid
4/16/2015 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
What do you think "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Jhonni Blaze is more pissed about -- the fact a video of her catching an ass whupping is going viral ... or the fact one of her co-stars helped spread it?
The video is from Jhonni's stripper days back in Houston ... a few years ago, and shows her in an epic fight with another stripper. All you need to know is Jhonni (who used to bang Drake) is the one on the ground ... so the clip is far from flattering to her.
As for why the video just surfaced ... Jhonni recently talked smack about being a badass on the 'LHHNY' reunion show -- so a fan of Moniece Slaughter (Jhonni's nemesis) dug up the clip to shame JB. Moniece was delighted and even reposted the clip ... though she eventually deleted it.
In the end, it doesn't really matter why -- it's a great video. Watch and enjoy.

2:10 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."
ESPN 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."
Arrested In Bev Hills
Allegedly Drunk, Kicked Police Officer
4/16/2015 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel early Thursday morning -- after allegedly going on a drunken rampage and kicking a police officer ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us ... Richards had been hanging out at the famous Polo Lounge inside the hotel and was asked to leave because she was too hammered and being "unruly."
We're told Richards went to a bathroom and refused to come out. Cops were called to the scene and we're told they had to "drag her out" of the bathroom.
Richards -- who has struggled with substance abuse in the past -- was reportedly belligerent, slurring her speech and reeked of booze.
We're told Kim was taken to a nearby jail -- where she allegedly kicked a police officer.
She's been charged with trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and drunk in public.
Cops issued a citation to Richards -- and she was later released.
Richards' sobriety was called into question on the recent "Real Housewives" reunion special -- when Lisa Rinna suggested that Kim was on something during a car ride earlier in the season.
Kim had admitted that she had taken a pain pill -- but was adamant she had not fallen off the wagon.

Tyrese told our photog what he thought of Henson -- aka Cookie Lyon -- saying it would "break the Internet" if he joined the ever-growing list of guest stars for Season 2. Sounds like he's more than interested.
Gibson and Henson definitely have a hot history -- they met on the set of "Baby Boy" back in 2001 and then sparks flew off set. Check out Tyrese's take on a possible reunion ... think black 'Notebook.'

10:45 AM PT -- It now sounds like the guy who said "fat bitch" is so far back there's no way Britney could have heard him. So the question ... what happened that pissed her off so much? Several sources who work on the show tell TMZ, they believe Britney was reacting to a comment someone made in the audience, but they don't know what was said.
Check out the video closely. It looks like the music may have started late ... so that's a possible trigger as well. But no one is saying definitively.
Britney Spears stood up for herself Wednesday night during her show, when someone in the audience apparently called her a "fat bitch."
A guy standing next to the mic says "fat bitch", and you can clearly hear Britney say ... "f***ing asshole."
It's interesting on several levels. Critics of her show say she walks through her performance like a robot, but this clip clearly shows Britney's antennas are up.
Plus, her mic was on ... during a song!!!
And she doesn't take crap from random people. Are you listening Sam Lutfi?
Sen. Pat Roberts
'Frozen' and Humiliated
Disney Ringtone Interrupts Sen. Hrg.
4/16/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
This is the ONLY way to make a Senate Finance Committee hearing interesting -- and even hysterical -- just have the "Frozen" soundtrack suddenly blare from the phone of 78-year-old Senator Pat Roberts.
Yeah, that just happened.
Roberts was in the middle of one of those normally boring and stiff Senate hearings when his phone started ringing ... and "Let It Go" echoed through the chamber.
Watch ... Roberts fumbled for his phone, but the damage was done.
We called the Kansas Senator's office ... and his communications director said the ringtone is for his grandkids. He's got 5 of 'em. She quickly pointed out he also has Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" as a ringtone.
Okay, Senator. As you said ... just let it go.
Now I Can Make Bail!!!
4/16/2015 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
11:30 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Suge was rushed to the hospital following the hearing for an unspecified emergency. It's the second time in less than a month he was hospitalized after a hearing.
Suge Knight just got a big break ... the judge in his murder case drastically reduced his bail, and it looks like bail is now doable.
The judge second-guessed his decision to set bail at $25 million, and lowered it this morning to $10 mil.
Suge's lawyer, Matthew Fletcher, tells us, he now thinks Suge can make bail ... as early as today.
And good news for Suge on another front. The judge dropped 1 of the hit-and-run counts in the fatal Tam's parking lot collision.
The bad news for Suge ... the judge didn't drop the murder or attempted murder counts.
