Alice Marie Johnson So Proud of Kim K ... Freeing Inmates is Her Calling!!!

5/20/2019 3:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian West was destined to spearhead criminal justice reform and free prisoners; she just needed a spark ... according to Alice Marie Johnson, the woman who provided that spark.

Alice joined "TMZ Live" Monday to talk about Kim's continued efforts and success in getting non-violent drug offenders out from under life sentences. She says she's incredibly proud -- and impressed -- by what Kim's doing ... but not surprised.

We broke the story ... since helping Alice get out of prison last year, Kim's helped free 17 more inmates over a recent span of 90 days.

She's also studying to become a lawyer so she can be better equipped for her charitable work.

Alice tells us she believes this passion was always inside of Kim waiting to be unleashed, and once she took a chance on her case -- and took it all the way to the White House -- the floodgates were opened.

Johnson's story is the subject of her new memoir 'After Life' ... and Kim's role is obviously significant. Kim also wrote the foreword for the book, and Alice says it's a must-read thing of beauty ... straight from the heart.

It goes on sale Tuesday.

Khloe Kardashian I Haven't Given Up on Marriage ... But I Have No Interest in Dating Right Now

5/20/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian says as devastating as her divorce to Lamar Odom was ... she'd absolutely get hitched again ... but that requires a date or 2, and at least for now that's not in the cards.

Khlo got super personal with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her podcast, "Divorce Sucks!" which drops Monday. Laura asks her straight-up -- would she be open to tying the knot yet again?

Check out Khloe's answer -- it takes an interesting turn. She says she was heartbroken when her marriage to Lamar fell apart ... and it seems it affected her even more than her super difficult breakup with Tristan Thompson.

Yet, Khloe says she has no regrets about either relationship. It's like they say -- better to have loved and lost than never ... yeah, you get it.

Khloe's got no one with whom she wants to hook up or ignite a new relationship with. In fact, dating is NOT on the table ... not at all.

These days it's all about True ... true that.

Kylie Jenner My Pad's Officially Jordyn Woods-Less

5/19/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner and her ex-bestie have a little more closure in their relationship ... because Jordyn Woods' belongings are no longer in her guest house.

Sources close to Kylie tell TMZ ... Jordyn came by and picked up her stuff about a week and a half ago, months after her hookup with Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, got her ex-communicated from the Kardashian family.

We're told the reason it took so long is that Kylie was super chill about the situation ... but somebody else in the family wasn't. Our sources say that the person -- we're not allowed to say who -- recently noticed Jordyn's stuff was still there and thought it was ridiculous and disrespectful ... like she was using Kylie's pad for storage.

Kylie decided to get Jordyn to get her stuff out quickly after that ... to keep the peace in her fam.

We're told Kylie wasn't home when Jordyn came over, but the housekeeper let her in and there were no issues. As we've told you, the 2 have remained amicable throughout the ordeal even though they're not as close as they used to be. Our sources say they still text each other on occasion, as well.

Jordyn and her mom -- especially her mom -- have even come out and praised Kylie and others in the fam and said they have love for everyone.

Tyga Once Married to Tristan Thompson's Baby Mama

5/18/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga was once married to Tristan Thompson's baby mama ... and that creates a crazy, tangled web!!!

We found court records showing Tyga and Jordan Craig -- who has a 2-year-old son, Prince with TT -- got hitched on September 06, 2010 and they filed divorce docs exactly one month later. Interesting ... Tyga recently started liking Jordan's pics on Instagram, a clear sign he's trying to grab her attention.

The brief marriage certainly adds an interesting layer to the Kardashian dating tree. Tyga has a kid with Blac Chyna who also has a child with Rob Kardashian. Tyga, of course, also dated Rob's sister, Kylie

As for the Tristan side of things ... he went on to have a daughter, True, with Khloe Kardashian

Tristan seemingly shaded Tyga Friday ... posting a pic of Prince just hours after Tyga liked one of Jordan's photos. 

Khloe Kardashian Grandma Kris Can't Be Trusted with True ... When it Comes to Sugar!!!

5/18/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian will not leave baby True alone with Kris Jenner ... because she fears Grandma will give the kid a sugar high!!!

True Thompson's momma dished with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her hit podcast, 'Divorce Sucks!' which drops Monday ... and Khloe says Kris is like your typical grandma ... always fretting about extra layers and bribing the little ones with sugary treats.

Khloe reveals True's yet to taste any kind of unnatural sugars ... but she's got to watch her back around Kris because granny wants to fatten up the 1-year-old with all sorts of sweets. 

Khloe believes Kris' tasty bribes are her way of getting Kim's and Kourtney's kids begging to go over the river and through the woods. 

It's a fascinating conversation on parenting ... watch and learn how each of the Kardashian sisters deal with their broods ... from militant to permissive. 

You can catch Laura's full episode with Khloe Monday on PodcastOne and Apple Podcasts.

Kim & Kanye We Named Baby #4 Psalm!!!

5/17/2019 3:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian thought long and hard on a name for their fourth child together ... and the proud parents are going with Psalm !!!

It makes a lot of sense ... Kanye's Sunday Service -- where he performs gospel and his own hits with a live band and choir -- has become a massive success, and his Coachella performance was one for the ages. And what do they sing at church services ... psalms! 

Kim tweeted a text exchange from Kanye which read, "Beautiful Mother's Day. With the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure."

As for Mother's Day ... Kanye played a special Sunday Service show which included his and Kim's kids along with other members of the family and the children of family friends. 

Kim says Psalm looks like Chicago's twin brother. He joins older sister North and big bro Saint as the sixth member of Kim and Kanye's growing family. 

As you know ... KK and KW welcomed their new kid into the world last week, and he weighed in at 6 lb and 9 oz. 

As we first told you... Kim and Kanye hired a new surrogate to carry their 4th kid to term -- but not because they were unhappy with the last one -- she was simply unavailable this time. The woman, who was in her early 20s, had a kid of her own back in December ... less than a year after popping out baby Chicago. So, the couple had to find another surrogate, whose profile still remains a mystery. 

The surrogate went into labor while Kourtney and Kris Jenner were taping an episode of 'Ellen' with all the Kardashian kids. Kim was supposed to be there, but she obviously skipped the taping to attend a more pressing matter. It's pretty crazy, even Kris didn't know she was about to have another grandchild!!!

Kim's got a ton on her plate with the newest addition. She's actively studying to become a lawyer and recently helped with the release of 17 prisoners in the last 90 days. Not to mention she's a social media mogul, runs a cosmetics line and stars on "Keeping Up with The Kardashians."

Kim and Kanye used a leftover embryo they created to bring Psalm into the world.

Welcome to the fam, kiddo!!!

Khloe Kardashian Baby True Can Feel Our Energy ... So I Keep It Cool w/ Tristan

5/16/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian says she tries to keep the peace around her baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, for the sake of their kid ... who she believes can sense when something's amiss. 

The Kardashian dished with Disso Queen Laura Wasser on her hit podcast, 'Divorce Sucks!' which drops Monday. Khloe and Tristan weren't married, but they share a child together ... and definitely went through a nasty breakup that might as well have been a divorce.

Khloe tells Laura she monitors the energy she puts out around baby True, who -- at only 13 months old -- can still pick up on bad vibes ... according to her mom.

That's why Khloe says she didn't have an issue with Tristan coming to True's first birthday party last month -- where she says they were civil with each other and made it work.

More importantly, Khloe says she wants to afford her daughter the same types of experiences and memories she had growing up ... and Daddy's gotta be a part of that.

Bottom line for Khloe ... she'll do what it takes for her daughter, and that includes putting on a happy face when needed. Anything for mommy's little girl, it seems!!!

You can catch Laura's full episode with Khloe Monday on PodcastOne and Apple Podcasts.

Lamar Odom I'm a 'Sex Addict' More Than 2,000 Women

5/15/2019 12:49 PM PDT
Breaking News

Lamar Odom says he's addicted to sex -- and claims he's bedded more than 2,000 women ... including strippers and prostitutes. 

Odom comes clean about his sex life in his soon to be released book, "Darkness to Light" -- where he says, "I have been obsessed with sex for as long as I can remember."

"There were too many strippers to count,” Odom said in an excerpt first provided to People ... "It wasn’t a big deal, but often I would pay them. I never thought less of them."

In the book, Odom also admits he cheated on Khloe Kardashian during their marriage -- and she found out. 

"I was shocked and embarrassed,” Odom told People ... "I wanted to take it back, but you can’t. [I] wanted to hide it. But that sick sin was hard for me to hide ... I had a problem."

Odom and Kardashian were married in 2009 -- and even though they separated in 2013 ... they weren't officially divorced until 2016. 

Odom also says porn addiction was a major issue for him -- and he was so obsessed with X-rated videos, "I ran out of porn to watch! That’s how you know when you are going a little overboard."

The 39-year-old also admitted to People that sex would trigger his drug use because it would allow him to "double up on that good feeling."

Of course, Odom's vices all came to a head at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada in 2015 -- when the ex-NBA star overdosed during a cocaine and booze-fueled binge. 

Odom says he still considers himself an addict -- but recently told TMZ Sports he feels like he's winning the battle

Kylie Jenner I Wanna Take Over The Hair Biz ... Shampoos, Gels, Dryers

5/15/2019 7:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is officially trying to get her hands on just about everything under the sun ... filing docs to take over the hair industry.

Jenner has applied for a trademark for "Kylie Hair" -- a line to include hair care products -- shampoos, conditioners, oils, gels, mousse and dye. Kylie's plans don't just stop at what to put in your hair, she's also trying to lock down products to style it too ... dryers, curling irons and brushes. 

Kylie's older sister, Kendall, also recently filed docs to trademark bags, clothing and hair accessories under her own name. 

Kylie Cosmetics is already a giant brand -- it's made her a billionaire -- and Kylie Skin is set to be a massive success as well.

TMZ broke the story, Kylie filed to trademark "Kylie Baby" earlier this week ... a line to include strollers, cribs, bouncers, bottles and a whole lot more.

The Kylie Empire continues to spread its wings.  

North West Makes Directorial Debut With 'Old Town Road' Music Vid

5/14/2019 12:01 PM PDT

Feast your eyes on the star power to come that is North West -- who just dropped her first music video for Lil Nas' smash hit, "Old Town Road." Gotta say, the kid's got talent.

Kim Kardashian posted the video to social media Tuesday, captioning it ... "What we do on maternity leave.... Directed and Choreographed by North." The home video starts out with North filming her mom inside their home but then takes center stage herself.

Donning a cowboy hat and an outfit that kinda looks Jessie-esque a la "Toy Story," North busts out some sweet moves ... and gets some pretty nice close-ups along the way.

Look, it's obviously not supposed to be a serious music video -- the real one for 'OTR' is dropping Friday -- but it's a helluva first step for North, who's proven to be quite the artiste ... and certainly not one to shy away from the camera. That much she's made clear

It's interesting ... North seems to be following in the footsteps of another young famous tyke who's been making some artistic waves herself -- Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy. It was recently revealed that Blue helped choreograph one of Beyonce's Coachella dance numbers, as seen on the new Netflix doc about the build-up to the show.

Talented kiddos right here.

5/14/2019 6:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

In docs, "Kylie Baby" wants to crank out baby furniture ... like cribs, bouncers, changing tables and baby walkers. She's also diving into the non-medicated skin care prep side of things with skin moisturizers, lotions and creams.

That's not all ... Kylie wants to cover you with her own line of linens, swaddling blankets and crib jumpers. Tryna store breast milk? She wants to cover ya too with breast storage bottles and even breast pumps. 

There's also plans to slap the "Kylie Baby" name on strollers, children's car seats and diaper bags.

Kim Kardashian Blowback Over Prison Reform Credit is Due, But Too Much?!?

5/10/2019 6:59 PM PDT

Kim Kardashian is getting backlash from people within the prison reform movement who think she's getting too much credit for helping free non-violent inmates ... and the lawyers Kim's working with are getting an earful.

Kim's attorney, Brittany K. Barnett, joined us on "TMZ Live" and talked about the people working behind-the-scenes to free prisoners who feel like their hard work is being overlooked by Kim's association with prison reform.  Brittany says the blame is not on Kim ... it's on the media.

As we've reported ... Kim is footing the bill while Barnett and lawyer MiAngel Cody of The Decarceration Collective lay the groundwork to free prisoners who received Draconian sentences for drug offenses. Together, their 90 Days of Freedom campaign has freed 17 men and women over the past few months, reuniting them with their families after years behind bars. 

Brittany -- who also believes the media has unfairly made it look like Kim is shouldering the effort -- tells us there's been a lot of grousing within many of the advocacy groups  ... she says lots of folks believe the media is placing too big a focus on Kim just because she's a celeb, and they feel the media is overlooking their efforts which have spanned decades.

The blowback against Kim was big enough for Brittany and MiAngel to address it on social media ... saying, "we are two Black women lawyers ... we do this for the CULTURE, the CAUSE, and the CODE." But, in our convo, Brittany says they are 3 women working together, Kim included.

To be fair, Kim's doing more than just throwing money around. She's also lobbying on behalf of the movement, had a sit down with President Trump in the White House and often deals directly with Jared Kushner. Not everyone can gain that kind of access to powerful people.

Bottom line ... Brittany tells us she's too busy getting people out of prison to worry about who gets the credit.

Kim & Kanye Surrogate Gives Birth ... Baby #4 is Here!!!

5/10/2019 9:36 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

9:36 AM PT -- Sources close tell us baby #4 was born Thursday and weighed 6 lb. 9 oz. 

5/10 9:05 AM PT -- The new baby West has arrived. Kim just tweeted, "He's here and he's perfect!" She continued, "He's also Chicago's twin lol I'm sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her."

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are about to be the proud parents of a brand spankin' new baby boy -- their surrogate's in labor!!!

Kourtney and Kris Jenner taped an episode of 'Ellen' Thursday with all of the Kardashian kids ... including Kim and Kanye's. Kourtney acknowledged Kim was supposed to be on the show but couldn't make it because there were urgent matters to attend to ... i.e., labor! And, get this, we're told Kris didn't even know. 

Our sources say Mom and Dad were at the hospital Thursday night with the surrogate. Don't know for sure if they'll be in the delivery room, but she was the last time around for the birth of Chicago

As we reported ... KW and KK hired a new surrogate to carry their fourth kid to term -- not because they were dissatisfied with the last one ... she was simply unavailable. The woman -- who was in her early 20s -- had her own child this past December ... less than 12 months after popping out baby Chicago. As a result ... the couple had to go with another surrogate.

This new surrogate's profile never became clear ... but ya gotta imagine Mom and Dad went with someone who was equally capable. 

Kim and Kanye used a leftover embryo they created to bring this newest baby to life. He'll join three siblings -- North, Saint and Chi -- as the sixth member of the family.

As you know ... Kim's got a full plate. Aside from studying to become a lawyer and running of beauty empire, she's dedicating much of her time to prison reform, helping first free Alice Marie Johnson and Matthew Charles. Just last week, she helped free a man given a life sentence.  

We'll keep ya posted on when baby #4 pops out ... but here's an early CONGRATS!!!
