Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris

Oh Yeah, They've Hooked Up

3/27/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift wanted to make one thing clear at Kenny Chesney's concert in Nashville ... she's banging Calvin Harris.

The video we got of them holding hands as they left the concert is but one example of strategic PDA. People who were around them said Taylor was sitting on his lap for a long time. There's also a pic of Calvin with his arms wrapped around Taylor's tiny waist. And an eyewitness says they kissed.

Taylor left Calvin's side for a while to dance in the aisle and then she went onstage to perform a song with Kenny.

Taylor's break-up song has already begun writing itself.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Scary Jacked

... For New Boxing Flick

032715_jake_gyllenhaal_primary

Jake Gyllenhaal is a beast. 

The actor got insanely ripped for his role in the upcoming "Southpaw" flick ... a movie about a boxer who loses everything and has to fight to get his life back. 

The movie looks super emotional ... and 50 Cent has a role in it ... but the headline here is that Gyllenhaal looks like a real-life fighter in the new trailer.

Calvin Harris

Taylor Swift ... Not My Type AT ALL

3/27/2015 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is stunning ... Calvin Harris went way beyond saying he was not into Taylor Swift ... he said she's the OPPOSITE of his type.  

Calvin went on "Capital Breakfast," a British radio show, in November and was asked about Tinder and the celebs who would earn a right swipe.   

You gotta hear him ... he's not putting us on. Calvin says Taylor earns a solid left. 

So what happened between November and March? Taylor looks the same, but somehow in the wee hours he changed his tune and his swipe.

Riff Raff

Bodyguard Annihilates Touchy-Feely Fan

3/27/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With a devastating hit that would make J.J. Watt jealous, one of Riff Raff's bodyguards absolutely destroyed a fan who made the mistake of jumping onstage and trying to touch the rapper.

It happens real fast … the overzealous fan jumps onstage and simply taps Riff Raff twice on the shoulder before turning to walk away. But by then, it was too late … and Riff Raff's HUGE bodyguard comes flying out of nowhere and levels the guy.

As if that wasn't enough, the bodyguard then tosses the guy's limp body back into the crowd as if it were nothing.

Hopefully the guy is okay/alive.

Jennifer Lopez, Casper Smart

They NEVER Broke Up!!!

3/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Lopez Casper Smart Never Broke Up Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart did NOT get back together, because we found out they were never really apart.

Sources close to the couple tell us ... the break-up they announced in June was a business move. Multiple sources say in the spring they did stop seeing each other, but only for a few weeks.

We're told JLo was hawking her movie, "Boy Next Door," and honchos on the film felt creating a buzz that she was hooking up with co-star Ryan Guzman would help sell tickets. It's hard to do that when you're not single.

But the decision wasn't one-sided. We're told Casper was up to the same thing because he was shooting "Street," a UFC fighter movie where he buffed up. Again, he was more appealing single.

0326-jennifer-lopez-casper-smart-SUB-02It all makes sense now. Two months after they revealed their break-up, a photog got shots of them in a convertible BMW. When JLo saw the photog, Casper put the top up and she slumped down in the passenger seat, out of sight.

Then in December, a dog at Jennifer's house bit a neighbor. Turns out it was Casper's dog that did the deed and he came running out of the house in his pajama bottoms after the attack.

0326-jennifer-lopez-casper-smart-SUB-01In February, Casper went to a GQ event, and when he left he walked down the block and jumped in a car JLo was driving, avoiding photogs. A few minutes later a photog saw them walk into a restaurant together. When they saw the guy they hightailed it inside.

And then they got bolder, dancing together at a Big Sean concert at the House of Blues in WeHo.

Case closed.

Gwen Stefani

Obsessed Fan Went to My Dad's House

To Read a Creepy Letter

3/27/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327_gwen_stefani_and_family_getty_compositeA Gwen Stefani fan is tracking her every move, lying in wait outside her parents' house, and leaving creepy letters and gifts for her ... according to a restraining order filed by Gwen's dad. 

Dennis Stefani filed docs requesting protection from a man named Richard Portnoy -- who Dennis says has popped up outside his home and Gwen's home 3 times -- twice in February and once last week. 

Dennis says he and his wife are terrified Portnoy will show up at their house again ... especially after one bizarre run-in. He says Portnoy made face-to-face contact with him at his house and read a letter to him about his feelings for Gwen. 

Even creepier, Gwen's dad says Portnoy has information about when and where Gwen gets medical treatments -- and attempted to make contact with her during an appointment on March 16.

0327-gwen-stefani-with-cops-splash-sub-2_swipeTMZ broke the story ... police responded to the medical office and tried to locate Portnoy, but came up empty. Dad doesn't say anything about how Portnoy is getting intel on Gwen and the family ... but says they have no prior relationship.

Dennis was granted the restraining order -- which protects Gwen, Gavin Rossdale, their 3 kids ... plus Dennis and his wife Patricia. Portnoy has to stay 100 yards away from them, and have no contact.

Fred Durst

I Did NOT

'Kill Em All'

3/27/2015 8:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0327_fred_durst_im_not_robert_instagramFred Durst is not a deranged alleged murderer who might have confessed on an HBO series to killing 3 people -- that's the OTHER guy named Durst.    

Ever since Robert Durst's story exploded on 'The Jinx' ... Fred's name has been coming up more and more. In fact, an initial report about Robert mistakenly called him "a member of a band."

It took the Limp Bizkit frontman a bit to respond, but Fred finally posted a pic of himself wearing a sweatshirt that says "NOT ROBERT."

We can all agree ... Limp Bizkit might be bad, but it ain't murder. Allegedly.

I Have A Twin!

And I Like It

0327_katy_perry_lookalike_getty-2Katy Perry doesn't need a mirror any more ... because she just found her long lost twin. 

Okay, so they're not identical, but pretty DAMN close ... outside the world premiere of "Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour" in L.A. Thursday night, Katy did a double ... nay ... triple take as one familiar looking fan stepped up for a selfie and threw everyone for a loop.

Same eyes ... check ... same eyebrows ... check ... Kitty Purry outfit ... check. 

Hey, if her doppelganger can strut and lip sync, the real Katy could take a break from the road every now and then.

Meow-be? Meow-be not.

'Basketball Wives' Star Sundy Carter

I Want Draya Michele Prosecuted

An Eye for an Eye, Baby!

3/27/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sundy Carter Draya Michele Assault "Basketball Wives: LA" star Sundy Carter has filed a police report claiming co-stars Draya Michele and Malaysia Pargo violently assaulted her and caused permanent eye damage, but she may have royally screwed up the case.

It happened during a Season 3 episode back in July 2013. Draya allegedly started the fight by calling Sundy "ratchet." Sundy claims Draya punched her and Malaysia hit her in the eye socket.

So here's the problem. Sundy filed the police report Wednesday night -- nearly 2 years after the incident, and the statute of limitations is 1 year.

Sundy says she only found out 6 months ago she has permanent eye damage. She says her vision is blurred, not getting any better, and she now has to wear glasses. And speaking of glasses ... her excuse won't hold water in court.

But there's a ray of hope. Sundy can still file a civil lawsuit against the girls because the statute of limitations is 2 years.

We'd love to livestream that trial. 

You can hear Sundy tell her side on "Icons with Ken Collis," April 1st.

Dr. Luke

Prove The Abuse ...

Turn Over Kesha's Medical Records

3/27/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dr Luke Kesha Medical RecordsDr. Luke is demanding Kesha produce medical records to prove he repeatedly sexually and physically abused her ... but the pop star is begging the court to shut down his request.

According to the docs ... Kesha's ex-producer wants her to turn over all texts, emails, and any communications in which she may have accused him of abuse, drugging or date raping her on a private jet.

Kesha says providing that info would be a waste of time ... since she's asked a judge to toss Luke's lawsuit against her. But until there's a ruling ... Dr. Luke's pressing forward.

He also wants any and all records from Kesha's 2014 rehab stint. Presumably, he thinks they'll help prove her allegations are all a fairy tale.

Kendrick Lamar

Bumping in Compton For

Hometown Music Video Shoot

3/27/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar's streak of cool performances continued with a trip to his hometown of Compton ... where he was shooting a music video at a swap meet.  

This wasn't just any swap meet ... it's the legendary Compton Swap Meet, where Eazy E and Dr. Dre shot videos back in the day. Kendrick was there to shoot a video for his next single, "King Kunta."

Lamar's video could be legendary -- and not just for the music. Compton Mayor Aja Brown tells TMZ the lot was recently sold to a developer who plans to use it for a retail store ... so Lamar's shoot could be the last one there. 

Brown added she's proud Kendrick's hasn't forgotten his roots ... and frequently comes back to Compton to support the community. 

Earlier this week, Kendrick played a show on the back of a moving flatbed truck. He's on a roll.
