Kendall Jenner My Alleged Stalker Will Go Free ... But I'm Still OK

10/25/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-kendall-jenner-tmz-02Kendall Jenner's feeling pretty safe ... despite the fact her alleged stalker skated on the charge.

Shavaughn McKenzie was found not guilty of stalking Monday but guilty of trespassing. TMZ broke the story ... McKenzie was arrested at Kendall's home after following her up the driveway, and it wasn't his first time tailing her.

Kendall's lawyer, Shawn Holley, tells us her client has as much protection as possible ... Holley went to court recently and got a 5 year restraining order and the judge said she could come back and have it extended for another 5 years. So if he crosses the line, he'll be arrested pronto.

McKenzie is still in jail, where he'll sit until his release on November 10th. Law enforcement sources say he has mental issues and his mother plans to take him back home to Virginia.

We're also told cops will patrol Kendall's home and monitor Shavaughn's whereabouts ... if he stays in town.

Short story ... Kendall's protected as much as possible, but it's still pretty scary being a celeb.

1025-taraji-henson-tmz-02Taraji P. Henson's empire is expanding into the Hollywood Hills where she just plunked down $6.4 million for her new secluded home.

Taraji still owns another home in the less bougie Glendale neighborhood, which she leases.

Cookie's got serious real estate hustle.



2016 Presidential Election Some Officials Worry Voting is 'Flawed Process' Open to Fraud

10/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-donald-trump-hillary-clinton-tmz-getty-01NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and most blogs are trying to convince you there is virtually NO EVIDENCE of voter fraud, so Trump's fears are bogus ... but we drilled down and some officials who run the voting systems around the country are VERY worried about fraudulent voting.

Fact is ... some states do not require voters to present any ID before casting a ballot. They shockingly rely on the ability of precinct poll workers to match a person's signature with the signature on the voter registration form. So a 70-year-old lady trying to manage a precinct is supposed to do what trained handwriting experts do in court ... ferret out the frauds.

Here are a few examples of what some say are deep concerns about possible voting fraud:

-- Nick LaLota, Suffolk County NY Board of Elections Commissioner, tells TMZ he's expecting 500,000 people to show up at voting booths on Nov. 8th, and he concedes signature verification compromises the integrity of the voting process. He says it will be hard to know who votes when they shouldn't.

-- Marcy Crawford, Deputy Commissioner of the Board of Elections for Allegany County, tells us voter fraud in her county is a real concern. She says everyone's talking about it in her office.

-- John Arntz, Director of Elections in San Francisco, says the way their system works ... voters show up at the polling place, announce their name to the polling place worker, who then checks the voting rolls and reads a corresponding address. If the voter says, "That's my address," he or she gets a ballot. Arntz concedes that it leaves the system open to fraud.

Counties and states are increasingly using signature verification in place of IDs.

Short story ... voter fraud is a real concern.

Britney Spears Rumble Over Bumble

10/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-britney-spears-instagramBritney Spears is entangled in a raging dispute over the Bumble dating service ... TMZ has learned.

Britney's lawyer fired off a threatening letter to Adam Kluger, claiming he went behind Britney's back and negotiated with Bumble to fund her new music video.

According to the letter, obtained by TMZ, Kluger allegedly told Bumble he had authority to rep Britney for an $800,000 deal that would put the Bumble name all over her new vid. The lawyer says Bumble agreed and gave Kluger $200k up-front. Kluger then made a deal with Britney's label, RCA, to pay them $450,000 for the Bumble product placement promotion.

Britney's people say what Kluger did is fraudulent, because he never repped Britney. They also say his $350k fee -- more than 43% of the deal -- is ridiculous and way above what agents charge.

Kluger tells us he never told Bumble he repped Britney. He says his company is a creative agency that puts people and companies together, which is exactly what he did here. He also said his company has worked with Britney before on projects involving Orange Theory and Plenty of Fish.

Kluger also says he's on the Forbes List of the 30 Most Influential People in Music Under the Age of 30. Kluger's lawyer tells us, "We are going to defend the sterling reputation of The Kluger Agency in court as necessary. The allegations are false. The Kluger Agency has done nothing wrong."

As for the music video, we've learned it's being made ... but without any Bumble product placement. And get this ... Britney made a deal with the dating service, which will underwrite the music video, and in return she's gonna do something with Bumble ... hmmm.

Chris Martin My Kids Need Some Shine ... They Can Sing!

10/25/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are 'consciously' deciding to thrust their kids into the spotlight to show off their musical talent ... and this video explains why they're doing it.

12-year-old Apple and 10-year-old Moses performed at a Boys & Girls Club fundraiser in Malibu, which looked like it was in someone's backyard. She sang Ariana Grande's "Just a Little Bit of Your Heart" and he sang "House of Gold" by Twenty One Pilots.

It's pretty remarkable -- not only because the kids clearly have their parents' musical talent -- but because Gwyneth and Chris usually try to keep 'em out out of the public eye.

Can't hold 'em back at some point.

Toni Braxton won't let lupus derail her from tour ... she performed over the weekend with a heart monitor strapped to her chest.

Toni's "The Hits Tour" hit Savannah, Georgia Saturday night where she busted into song with with the monitor in plain view.

We're told doctors urged her to wear it 24/7 to detect chest pain, as well as oncoming heart attacks or strokes.

She still sounds amazing.
