Barry Manilow has been muzzled by his doctors who have zipped up his grill and banned him from spittin' rhymes.
Barry's on the mend after undergoing emergency oral surgery. He apparently had surgery on Monday but there were complications and he was rushed back Thursday night from Memphis to L.A. for the procedure.
The "Mandy" singer's publicist said, "For the next 48 hours, Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing or rap."
10:00 AM PT -- Police spoke to Murray on Friday and he's offered to pay for the damage to the phones. The phone owners were cool with that, and don't want to press any charges ... so, case closed.Bill Murray is accused of going all Naomi Campbell on some fans who tried to take his photo in the tranquil seaside town of Carmel, CA ... and now cops are investigating.
Bill was hanging out at the Vesuvio rooftop lounge, a popular watering hole for celebs playing in the annual Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tourney. It's going on now, and Bill is playing.
The owner of the restaurant, Scott Rose, tells us Bill wasn't drinking ... he just got really pissed when a few patrons got starstruck and took his pic.
The fans were pretty obvious, with flashes going off only 10 feet away from Bill, according to Scott. He says Bill got so angry he got up and chucked their phones off the 2nd story rooftop.
Cops were called, but Bill left before they got there.
Scott says the incident's making him change his policy -- no phones and no pictures, since celebs come in a lot. We spoke to the Carmel PD, and they're looking into the incident.
No truth, we believe, to rumors Bill said the following ...
Kanye West and Taylor Swift are now at war over one of his new songs, in which he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."
Taylor came out swinging Thursday night, disputing our story that sources told us Kanye called her about the song and she thought the lyrics were funny and had no problem with him releasing the track.
Tayor's rep says, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
But Kanye has just fired back, tweeting, "I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."
Kanye goes on, "Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n****." And, Kanye says, it was Taylor who actually inspired him with the lyric. He says, "She was having dinner with one of our friends who's name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can't be mad at Kanye because he made me famous!"
In a show of support, Taylor's younger brother, Austin, threw his Yeezys in the trash.
Rihanna dropped a big clue she's a hardcore 'Star Wars' fan just like everybody else Thursday during her night out on the NYC town.
RiRi dined at one of her favorite places ... Da Silvano in the Village.
The skirt's a knockoff of the old movie poster for 'The Phantom Menace' from the prequel trilogy ... so she clearly wasn't dressing to impress ... the original three or 'Force Awakens' is the proper attire for true aficionados.
Lamar Odom is getting a massive taste of his old life with Khloe Kardashian as the paparazzi swarm around the "exes" in New York City.
This video is remarkable 'cause if you didn't know better, you'd think it was shot 5 or 6 years ago -- Khloe and Lamar arm-in-arm, doing some Greek at Milos in Midtown after Kanye West's show at MSG ... and the photogs firing off shots of their every step.
What's also obvious is how well Lamar's moving around. He slowed a little as he approached their car on the way out, but remember -- this guy was nearly dead 4 months ago. It's an AMAZING recovery!
Khloe's insisted there's nothing romantic between them anymore -- despite her calling off the divorce -- but 2010 called ... it wants this Khloe and Lamar video back.
DMX has come back from the dead ... performing at a NYC nightclub just days after cops found him unconscious ... not breathing and no pulse.
X took the stage for an hour Thursday night at Lively nightclub, looking strong and healthy.
TMZ broke the story ... DMX was found lying in the parking lot of a Ramada Inn Monday. Cops had to revive him. He denies it was an OD, but a witness told cops the rapper had ingested a white powder, and cops gave him Narcan, an antidote to narcotic ODs.
