12/23/2014 7:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Kris Jenner is through watching all of her daughters strip down and bare it all ... the 59-year-old clearly wants in on the action ... and the result  is weird as hell.

Kris and Kendall Jenner won't be breaking the Internet anytime soon with this bizarre vid shot for LOVE Magazine's advent calendar ... it's a head-scratcher for sure.

When you're done eyeballing her long-legged 19-year-old daughter check out how a robotic Kris comes off like the sad mom embarrassing her kids at a sleepover. 

Well ... at least they don't make out.

Kevin Hart

Would I Ever Work With Sony Again?

Hmmmmm ...

12/23/2014 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122314_kevin_hart_launchIt was a simple question -- Would you ever work with Sony again? -- but Kevin Hart didn't answer ... or did he?

Hart -- who is easily the most talkative and approachable big celeb in town these days -- was leaving a club in Hollywood Monday night when our photog asked the question.  It seems relevant, given that one Sony exec called Hart "a whore."

Hart, who initially came out swinging for "his brand" ... deflected our question in an interesting way.

Check it out.

Mathew Knowles

Hawking Beyonce Stuff for Top $$$

Deep Discounts on Solange

12/23/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce Dad Garage SaleBeyonce's dad is trying to make ends meet by unloading tons of her souvenirs from her career in a massive garage sale -- which also features Solange stuff ... in the bargain bin. 

As we've told you ... Mathew Knowles is having baby mama troubles -- which might explain why he started selling off some Bey treasures outside his office in Houston last Friday.

As of Monday, there were plenty of items available ... including a giant Beyonce poster for $200, old tour books for $20, and various pieces of House of Dereon clothing. On a budget? You can find a Solange CD for $1.96. 

In the non-Beyonce aisle -- Mathew's also selling office furniture ... so, it looks like a total fire sale.

We're told Mathew shunned an attempt to haggle the oversized Beyonce poster down to $145 ... standing firm at two hundy.

Daddy's baby needs a new pair o' shoes.

Dennis Rodman

I'm No Longer Kim Jong-un's Ally

... In Video Games, Anyway

EXCLUSIVE

1222-glorious-leader-yt-02
Dennis Rodman no longer wants to be seen with Kim Jong-un -- at least not in a video game -- and he's threatening legal action if a video gamer doesn't make some big changes ... STAT.

The game is called "Glorious Leader!" -- and players can take on America as the N. Korean dictator or as his trusted ally, Rodman. The game was designed by Jeff Miller and his company, Moneyhorse ... and Dennis is not pleased with his role in the game.

TMZ obtained a letter Rodman's attorney sent to Miller ... demanding Dennis be removed from the game because it portrays him in a "negative light."

The letter makes it sound like Dennis has finally taken off the blinders when it comes to Kim Jong-un.

FUN FACT: Miller says he actually pitched the game to Sony execs in October -- before the hack went down. Pretty sure that's gonna be a pass now, dude.

Dolly Parton

Dollywood Sued

After Woman Suffers Brain Injury on Swing Ride

EXCLUSIVE

Dolly Parton Dollywood Sued

A Tennessee couple says they came to Dolly Parton's Dollywood for entertainment -- what they got was a traumatizing experience that left one of them with lasting brain damage and broken bones.

Tedi and Derryl Brown claim in a new lawsuit ... Tedi went on the Waltzing Swinger ride, which is like a giant, revolving swing.  She says she hung on for dear life after slipping from her seat and falling head first onto the hard concrete, 10-ft. below.

They say the park ignored the wet weather ... and the slick conditions turned the ride into a death trap -- resulting in Tedi's extensive, life-changing injuries.

They're demanding the park pay $475K in damages.

Bill Cosby

CNN Fires Back

12/22/2014 1:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1222-cosby-letter-launch-tmz-01
CNN has fired back at Bill Cosby's lawyer ... defending it's decision NOT to include accuser Beverly Johnson's live-in boyfriend as part of a network special, calling him a criminal with an ax to grind.

TMZ broke the story ... Cosby's lawyer fired off a nasty letter to the network Friday, claiming it was rigging a story about model Beverly Johnson -- who accused Cosby of drugging her in the mid-80s  -- without interviewing the man she lived with from 2006-2009.

The lawyer claimed during that time Johnson never mentioned the drugging and only heaped praise on Cosby.

But in a scathing retort, CNN says the boyfriend -- Mark Burk -- was not around when the alleged drugging occurred. The letter also minimizes the relevance that Johnson said bad things to Burk about Cosby.

What's more ... CNN says Cosby's lawyer, Marty Singer, failed to mention Burk has a criminal history ... multiple restraining orders keeping him away from Johnson and threats to kill her.

And CNN says Burk isn't credible because he filed a bogus lawsuit against Johnson for palimony.

Joe Cocker

Dies From Lung Cancer

12/22/2014 10:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1222-joe-cocker-getty-01Joe Cocker -- the gravely-voiced singer known for his version of "With a Little Help From My Friends" -- died today after battling a lung cancer ... according to his agent.

Cocker was reportedly on his ranch in Colorado with his wife when he passed away. 

Cocker's cover of the Beatles 'Help From My Friends' made him an international superstar in 1968. He went on to have several other huge hits, like "You are So Beautiful" in 1975 -- and his duet with Jennifer Warnes ... "Up Where We Belong." That song earned him a Grammy in 1983.

Joe's Woodstock performance was legendary. He was 70 years old.

Casey Kasem

Buried in Norway

... FINALLY

12/22/2014 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1222-casey-kasem-getty-01Casey Kasem was finally laid to rest ... 6 months after he died.

It's the end of what turned into an international power struggle between Casey's wife, Jean, and his children.  

We've learned the famed DJ was buried last Tuesday at the Vestre Gravlund, one of the largest cemeteries in Norway. We're told there was a small ceremony ... we don't know if Jean was there but we're told his kids were not. Casey's children didn't know he was even buried until Monday. 

The burial is legally significant. The LAPD has been conducting an elder abuse investigation after Casey's kids filed a police report claiming Jean caused Casey to get a fatal infection during a wild, multi-state car ride.

The body has been rotting away for months -- for a long period of time it wasn't even embalmed. The decay and now the burial in a foreign land will make it virtually impossible for L.A. authorities to make a solid determination on whether the bed sores contributed to Casey's death.

RIP Casey ... finally.

Iggy Azalea

Afraid To Face Ex ...

Fears Violence In Texas

12/22/2014 9:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea Afraid Ex Boyfriend

Iggy Azalea
 is pleading with a judge to block her ex-BF's attempt to force her back to Texas ... because she says he's violent and she fears for her safety.

Iggy is embroiled in a bitter lawsuit with Hefe Wine -- she sued him for surreptitiously downloading her personal computer and trying to hawk her music.

Wine is asking the judge to move the case from L.A. to Houston, where he lives, but Iggy is panicked. She says that's his turf and he's "vindictive and violent." It seems she's saying Wine has more access to her if she comes to him.

There's another reason why she feels safer in L.A. -- boyfriend/Lakers' guard/6'7" Nick Young.

The Lakers may suck this year, but a big guy is a big guy.
