Tattle: Kimye take baby on an undercover trek

Posted: August 16, 2013

THESE HAVE been fallow, bitter times for those who chronicle the comings and goings of the glitterati. After all, The Most Important Woman in the World, Kim Kardashian, has been in self-imposed exile since she presented baby daddy Kanye West with a daughter they named North West. (This kid will never lack direction in her life!)

Yesterday, mommy, daddy and baby were spotted at an El Lay medical center. Presumably, they were there so North could have a checkup.

As for what North looks like, no news yet. Borrowing a classic move from Michael Jackson, TMIWIW covered her spawn with a blanket.

But we can glory in the words of The Huffington Post, which assured us that Kim "looked great," sporting a casual outfit that included black leggings, an oversized button-down denim shirt and a sweater tied around her waist.

MTV: JT's like Mike

Speaking of Jackson, the late, weird pop star's memory will be evoked Aug. 25 when Justin Timberlake receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards from Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

According to the cable outlet that stopped playing music once it discovered the profits created by pregnant teenagers, Timberlake "has been the architect behind some of the most innovative and popular music videos of the last two decades."

Not surprisingly, JT will also perform during the glittering blowout, also featuring such obscure and esoteric artists as Lady Gaga, Kanye, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke.

New digs for Bill & Hil

Turns out even the famous and powerful people can't avoid hassles with landlords.

The New York Post's Page Six reports that Bill and Hillary Clinton will have a new vacation crib when they arrive in the Hamptons hamlet of Sagaponack this weekend.

The Power Couple had for years taken summer R&R at a "cottage" owned by real-estate big shot Elie Hirschfeld. But a source told the Post that Hirschfeld withheld a huge chunk of the Clintons' security deposit after last summer's stay. Bill and Hil may have also been PO'd about what the source described as "astronomical" landscaping and utility fees charged to them.

So this year, the couple will be chillaxin' in a six-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom hovel at 709 Daniels Lane. If you're in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by.

Having a ball

Wesley Warren Jr., a 49-year-old Las Vegas resident, is hardly a celebrity - yet. But his fame may increase after TLC airs a documentary about him Monday with the decidedly unambiguous title, "The Man With the 132lb Scrotum" (9 p.m. Philly time).

According to TLC, the program follows Warren "as he deals with day-to-day challenges, struggles to find appropriate funding and eventually undergoes life-saving surgery."

Personally, we think the show would be a better fit for the Style Network. After all, it's not every day someone needs a wheelbarrow as a wardrobe accessory.

More on MJ

Michael Jackson's ex-wife admitted in court yesterday that she was concerned the entertainer's frequent medical visits were motivated by a desire for drugs, not medical treatment.

Debbie Rowe testified that she said as much to Jackson when he would go to his longtime dermatologist more than once a week in the 1980s and early 1990s. Rowe is the doctor's former medical assistant.

She acknowledged her concerns under questioning by a lawyer for AEG Live LLC, which is being sued by Jackson's mother in a negligence case. AEG denies it is liable for Jackson's 2009 death.

Brown hit-and-run charge dismissed

A Los Angeles judge dismissed a hit-and-run driving charge yesterday against singer Chris Brown. The judge said Brown had reached a civil compromise with the other driver. Brown didn't attend the hearing.

Brown claims he traded insurance information with the woman after his Range Rover struck her Mercedes in Toluca Lake in May.

City prosecutor Patrick Hiscocks objected to the dismissal, saying Brown was on probation at the time of the crash for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

He also said the other driver felt she was "castigated" on social media after the crash.
