Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

 

Ariana Grande got a big scare at a concert after an obsessed fan with a bizarre history showed up, demanding a face-to-face with the singer.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they were on alert for Timothy Normandin when Grande performed last month in Connecticut. There was good reason to have the heads up.

Normandin has had multiple run-ins with Ariana. He sent her various gifts, including a 42.5 pound pumpkin. He once showed up at her record company in a Santa suitThat stunt got him placed on a psych hold.

He was arrested at the concert venue for criminal trespass and released on a $5,000 bond.

Scary times for big stars.

 

Kanye West was set up to play the hero -- helping Kim Kardashian better understand Bruce Jenner's transition -- thanks to a bunch of crap he himself had to take on while coming up in the music biz.

As Jenner told Diane Sawyer ... Kanye lead Kim to a breakthrough by telling her everyone has to be true to themselves. Sources tell us Kanye was referring to how music execs made him feel about his identity in the rap game.

We're told Kanye felt like he stood out when his career was taking off -- he was a rapper who also had strong interests in other fields, such as fashion. But he felt like the honchos ignored his true identity, and were constantly trying to mold him into someone they could market better.

Sources say Kanye explained to Kim that standing up to those execs was the only thing that eventually brought him true happiness.

Pretty savvy on Kanye's part ... to recognize Bruce going through the same thing he did, and then convey that to Kim.

Welcome to the Good Life.

 

Bruce Jenner has gone public.

The 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist and parent of six is transitioning into a woman and has now opened up for the first time about the journey.

(At this time, Bruce Jenner has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)

"Shall I take my ponytail out? Yeah, why not, huh?" Jenner literally and symbolically let his hair down as he built up to his big moment opposite ABC News'Diane Sawyer in the hotly anticipated interview special, Bruce Jenner: The Interview, that aired tonight. "We're talking about all this stuff. Yeah, let's take the damn ponytail out."

He smiled.

''Yes, for all intents and purposes I am a woman," Jenner said. "People look at me differently. They see you as this 'macho male,' but my heart and my soul and everything I do in life, it is part  of me, that female side is part of me. It's who I am. I was not genetically born that way."

"As of now, I have all the male parts and all that kind of stuff, so in a lot of ways we're different, OK? But we still identify as female," Jenner continued. "And that's very hard for Bruce Jenner to say. 'Cause why? I don't want to disappoint people."

The months-in-the-making interview was conducted in parts at Jenner's home in Malibu and at various locations in New York.

"I've been thinking about this day forever and what I should do with my life, how do I tell my story," an emotional Jenner began, fighting tears. "It's been really tough. But here I am, I'm still here. That's the good news."

After Jenner's separation and subsequent divorce from Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kris Jenner, changes in the decathlete's physical appearance started to make headlines, as speculation over a seemingly visible transformation became the subject of widespread fascination and analysis. Up until now, Jenner had not engaged in the public speculation over the personal matter.

"My brain is much more female than it is male," Jenner says.

 

 

 

On Crossdressing As A Child: "I marked the closet so when I put it back I could put it all back, everything back in the exact same spot so I wouldn't get caught. And, at the time, I didn't know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good."

On His Sexuality: "I am not gay," Jenner said. "I am, as far as I know, heterosexual. I've always been with a woman, raising kids."

On Being Caught Crossdressing By Kim: “Kim caught me one time. Then she kind of walked out. It was like this big secret in the family, and we never talked about it again”

On Kanye West Helping Kim: ''They were talking about it and [Kanye] says to Kim, 'Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, they don't mean anything.' 'Since then, Kimberly has been by far the most accepting, and the easiest to talk to about it.'

On Taking His Life After The Paparazzi Discovered His Secret: ''I thought, 'It's like over.' Then I thought, 'Wouldn't the easiest thing to be right now. And I could see where people get to that. Go into the room. Got a gun. Boom. You know? Pain is over. It's done. You know. Go to a better place.'

On Kris Jenner Finding Out: “I loved Kris. I had a wonderful life with her. I learned a lot from her. … I thought we had a pretty good sex life. It was tough on her. … Kris is a good woman. I’ve got no complaints with her. She’s a good person. If she’d have been really good with it and understanding, we’d probably still be together.''

On Khloe Finding Out: "You would think out of all of the kids, Khloé is the most fun, open-minded...and that's not the case with Khloé. She's very emotional. She's had the toughest time with it. Because she's had a lot of losses in her life. She lost her father at a young age. He died suddenly, cancer. You know, Lamar [Odom] had his issues."

On Changing Now: ''I couldn’t take the walls closing in on me. If I died … I’d be so mad at myself that I didn’t explore that side of me. If you’re living your life female, as Khloe would say, ‘You gotta have the vajayjay!’” There’s no rush.”

 

 

 

Rob Kardashian surfaced on Twitter on Friday to share a heartwarming message of support for Bruce Jenner just after the Olympian and reality star revealed in a candid TV interview with Diane Sawyer that he is transitioning from a man to a woman.

(At this time, Bruce has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)

Unlike his siblings, the 28-year-old son of the late Robert Kardashian and Keeping Up With the Kardashians momagerKris Jenner, 59, Bruce's ex-wife, rarely tweets. Rob has kept out of the spotlight over the past year and has largely been absent from the reality show while dealing with some personal issues.

"You have always been a role model to me and now more than ever, I look up to you," he said. "LOVE YOU !! !!"

 

 

Kendall Jenner's latest tribute to dad Bruce Jenner, posted a day after he revealed in an emotional TV interview that he is transitioning from a man into a woman, may make you cry all the tears.

(At this time, Bruce has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)

"I wrote this in fifth grade...nothing has changed," she said on Instagram on Saturday, with a heart emoji and a photo of what appears to be part of a fill-in-the-blank school assignment.

On the sheet of paper, she wrote, "I enjoy riding horses, but I don't care to play soccer. I could do anything in the world, it would be being a pro horseback rider. If I could be anybody in the world, I would be my dad."

Say it with us now: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!

Jared Leto is unrecognizable as the Joker, as seen in a the first character photo for the new D.C. villains-themed film Suicide Squad that director and writer David Ayer tweeted on Friday night.

The longtime heartthrob and frontman of rock group Thirty Seconds to Mars, who made our hearts melt in the '90s with his knack of leaning against walls in My So Called Life and who won an Oscar last year for a different physical transformation for Dallas Buyers Club, had weeks ago shocked his fans (the Echelon) by chopping off his long, majestic, glistening golden brown locks, bleaching his hair, dyeing it green and making his eyebrows disappear (poof!) as he prepared for his new supervillain role.

The result: Pure terror.

Leto's Joker appears shirtless and sports green hair, black smudged eyeliner, dark red lipstick, a grill and an insane expression. He wears a purple glove on one hand and sports several tattoos, including the words "damaged" and "Ha ha" repeated many times, both on one side of his chest and on one of his arms. He also has tattoos of a skeletal court jester and a toothy smile.

"The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics," Ayer tweeted.

 

 

 

Maybe this due date is later than we first thought.

As royal baby watch continues in the states and around London, both Prince William and Prince Harry were able to commemorate ANZAC Day and the Centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign at two separate ceremonies Saturday morning.

Prince George's father joined grandmother Queen Elizabeth ll and her husbandPrince Philip for an outdoor service around 11 a.m. local time. The ceremony began with two minutes of silence before a wreath was place at the Cenotaph.

The royal party later watched and listened to politicians and senior servicemen pay their respects at the memorial. ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand for those who've died in wars and other conflicts. 

 

 

Demi Lovato threw her musical support behind Bruce Jenner last night in New Zealand.

The pop star dedicated her performance of the ballad "Warrior" to the Olympic gold medalist during her show at the Vector Arena.

(At this time, Bruce Jenner has not chosen to publicly identify as a woman and so E! News will continue to refer to him as Bruce and use male pronouns, until he indicates otherwise.)

Lovato admitted to the audience that she didn't know who Jenner was untilKeeping Up With the Kardashians.

"Let's be honest, neither did you," she said to the crowd. "But I just want to dedicate this song…It's so cheesy that I'm even doing this, but whatever. I want to dedicate it to someone who became an even bigger hero last night—Bruce Jenner!

"By the way, never ever thought I'd dedicate a song to him but he was honest and he was open with his story," Lovato continued. "No matter if you agree with it or not, he probably saved so many lives and educated so many people [about] transitioning into becoming a woman and being transgender and what that's all about. So, yeah, I just want to dedicate it to Bruce Jenner."

The opening lyrics of the beautiful ballad? "This is a story that I have never told. I gotta get this off my chest to let it go."

She goes onto sing, "Now, I'm a warrior. I got thicker skin. I'm a warrior. I'm stronger than I've ever been."

The father of six and step dad of four said during his interview with Diane Sawyeron Friday that he began struggling with his gender identity when he was a little boy.

''Yes, for all intents and purposes I am a woman," Jenner said. "People look at me differently. They see you as this 'macho male,' but my heart and my soul and everything I do in life, it is part of me, that female side is part of me. It's who I am. I was not genetically born that way."

 

 

Unidentified assailants fired shots at a tour bus carrying Lil Wayne near Atlanta, while the rapper and others were unharmed, police say.

The incident took place early on Sunday, hours after the 32-year-old performed at the Compound nightclub in the city.

"Lil Wayne's tour buses were coming from Atlanta to Cobb County last night," a Cobb County Police spokesperson told E! News. "There were shots fired at the buses at about 3.14am. The shooting happened on I-285 near I-75 in Cobb County. There were at least a dozen people on both buses. No one was injured."

"No one was arrested," the spokesperson added. "The only suspect they have is a white vehicle."

The rapper and his entourage was later spotted exiting a parked bus surrounded by crime scene tape police had placed, NBC affiliate 11Alive TV reported. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's website posted a video that shows several men, including one resembling Lil Wayne, sporting sunglasses and a gray hooded vest worn over a white T-shirt and carrying a red backpack, walking and lifting up and stepping under the tape.

 

 

Now this is the look of love!

There's no question Tyga and Kylie Jenner share a very close friendship. But according to a new photo going viral on social media, it appears the famous rapper wants to make that special bond permanent.

In a new Instagram, the 25-year-old is seen wearing a short-sleeve T-shirt that shows off some of his arm tattoos. But when looking on the inside of his right elbow, "Kylie" is written in large, black letters.

In an added twist, the "Rack City" crooner was able to hide any new ink job Friday when he posted a selfie from a vehicle. Either this is brand new or something is seriously off. 

 

 

Let there officially be peace in daytime!

For more than two months, Ellen DeGeneres and Matt Lauer have not let up with their hilarious pranks on one another.

Thanks to clever editing, we've seen the Today co-host naked, displaying his foot fetish and proving his love for Fifty Shades of Grey. Not to be outdone, Ellen has also received some of her own medicine. After all, who can forget the stunt that took a whole lot of balls?

For better or worse, the two came together at the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards Sunday night to rehash their so-called "feud." What came next, however, was one final surprise.

"Here's what we're doing," Matt shared. "In the spirit of the Daytime Emmys, Ellen and I are here to announce that we are officially ending our feud or prank war." But within seconds, the morning show host rips off his suit and shows off some black lingerie,  tights and dare we say rock-hard abs.

"Matt, please! This is a dignified celebration," Ellen explained. "This is the best in daytime. Oh my god, pull it together."

Sorry, he's not sorry. After all, Matt has to do some dance moves before it's all said and done.

In one last twist, Ellen announced to viewers that Matt generously agreed to donate $1,000 of his own money to a charity anytime a winner thanks him in their speech. Based on the first awards handed out tonight on POP TV, someone is going to have to pay up.

"These are the real winners," Matt joked while doing one final shimmy. "And remember, if you win, please pick me." Well done, Lauer and thanks for all the laughs.

Chris Brown is real upset he's not getting credit where it matters ... on his daughter's birth certificate. Sources connected to Brown tell us, he found out recently the "father" on baby Royalty's birth certificate is listed as Brazil Riesling, aka King Ba. TMZ broke the story, 8 months after Royalty was born, DNA tests revealed Chris was the papa. He's trying to establish a relationship with his daughter -- even trying to get baby mama Nia Guzman to move to L.A. -- but his efforts have been thwarted by Ba, who still considers himself the dad. Ba, who is still with Nia, has been taunting Chris with pics of himself and the baby. Chris now has his lawyer in the act, negotiating with Nia and Ba to change the birth certificate to list him as the biological father. If push comes to shove, it will end up before a judge. (TMZ)

 

Eva Mendes Is the Latest Face of Estee Lauder. Eva Mendes is getting her mommy glow on for Estee Lauder. The actress is making her campaign debut for the brand, who announced her as the latest face of their New Dimension skincare collection earlier. Mendes will be featured in TV and print ads that are scheduled to roll out next fall. This is Eva's third major brand partnership -- she's been a collaborator with New York & Company since 2013 and has a range of capsule clothing collections for the retailer. She also launched a product line with Circa Beauty earlier this year. "Since my teenage years, I have always admired Estee Lauder, the woman and the brand," Eva said in a statement about her new brand ambassadorship. "I'm excited to represent New Dimension skincare because I can relate personally to what it stands for - the power we have as women to take control and transform our own beauty." This announcement is not so surprising, really, when you consider Eva's pretty flawless complexion. Mendes joins model Kendall Jenner as one of the faces of the classic beauty brand (no word on if she'll get her own dancing video too, though!). (Eonline)

Well, here's Diddy and Mark Wahlberg making a $250,000 bet on the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight ... like it ain't no thing. Diddy's got Floyd. Mark's got PacMan. The best part of the video is how casually these guys throw around their dough. In fact, the bet started at $100,000 ... but Mark wanted to know, "Why so little?" For the record, the man who's wagering the MOST on the fight isn't even in the video ... it's 50 Cent -- who says he'll be plunking down $1.6 MILLION on Floyd. #EvenIfHeLosesHesStillRich. (TMZ)
