Kanye West, Taylor Swift Each Accuses the Other You're a Liar

44 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0211-kanye-taylor-tmz-01Kanye 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.

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

Lamar & Khloe We're Back to Soaking Up the Spotlight

2/12/2016 5:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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.

Clint Eastwood Huge Stars Took Me to Dinner ... Guess Who Paid?!

37 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Do ya feel generous, punk?? Well, do ya? 

4 ridiculously rich celebrities go to dinner after Day 1 of the Pebble Beach Pro Am -- Clint Eastwood, Ray Romano, Kenny G and Andy Garcia. Question is ... who picked up the check??

We got the guys leaving Il Tegamino after a long day of golf -- and they couldn't have been nicer ... especially Kenny G and Ray Romano. 

Not only are those two are crushing it in the tourney -- but Kenny also won a chip-off earlier in the day, earning $100,000 for charity. 

So, we had to ask ... when 4 huge stars go to dinner, who pays? 

It's a pretty great clip. 

DMX Breathing Easy Again

10 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0212-dmx-splash-01DMX 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.

Taking me back tho #dmx #alifexpuma #nyfwparty

Exclusive Details

When Fetty Wap reps his crew, he reps 'em hard ... as in a brand new $70,000 diamond and gold chain hard.

We found out Fetty commissioned Elliot Avianne from Avianne & Co. jewelers in NYC to make a custom RGF Island emblazoned medallion. It's held together by 14 carat gold Cuban links blanketed with 35 carats of diamonds!

Fetty picked up the piece this week and owner Joe Avianne says the "RGF Island" is a reference to the rapper's single from his self titled debut album and his label. 

If you ain't beefin' bout the money, then what's the problem?

Kanye West I Gave Ray J a Heads Up I Rapped About Him Hitting Kim First

2/12/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210-kanye-kim-ray-tmz-01

Kanye West mocked Ray J during his album release concert Thursday -- about both of them having sex with Kim Kardashian -- but we've learned Kanye called Ray ahead of time to squash any beef.

In one of the tracks, Kanye rapped, "Me and Ray J would probably be friends if we wasn't in love with the same bitch ... you might have hit it first, but I'm rich, though."

The kinder, gentler Kanye must have realized Ray could have taken it badly and launched an attack, so Kim's hubby launched his preemptive strike.

We're told Kanye ran into Brandy and they talked face-to-face, he asked her to tell her brother he meant no harm or disrespect by the lyrics ... he said is was pure fun and he was not talking trash about Ray J's bank account.

In addition, Kanye's rep contacted Ray J's manager, David Weintraub, to reaffirm the message.

As for how Ray J received it, we're told he's cool with both Kanye and Kim and appreciates Kanye reaching out.  

Our Ray J sources say he also wants to make something very clear ... he's also very rich and currently has 4 TV shows on the air. 

'Bachelorette' Star Josh Seiter Trash Talking the Show Got Me Blackballed

2/12/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0211-josh-seiter-INSTAGRAM-02'Bachelorette' contestant Josh Seiter says he's being blocked from talking to the media about something as innocent as a charity event, because he accused the show of being staged.

Josh -- who got booted from Kaitlyn Bristowe's season -- says he was supposed to be on "Windy City Live" this week, but ABC contacted the show and Josh's manager to say the appearance would breach his 'Bachelorette' contract.

Josh says he's been allowed to do promotional gigs in the past, and thinks this is especially strange since he was merely going to talk up a breast cancer charity event. 

0211-the-bachelor-ban-josh-seiter-01

He tells us he suspects the ban has something to do with previous interviews he did after getting booted -- including one on "TMZ Live" -- where he alleged most of the 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' shows are fake.

Josh says he's been told he can still do the charity event, as long as he doesn't talk to the media. We reached out to ABC and Warner Bros. (which produces 'Bachelorette') ... but no comment from either.

EXCLUSIVE

0211-kanye-west-taylor-swift-TMZ-GETTY-01

Kanye West personally called Taylor Swift late last month to tell her about a lyric in his song ... "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."

Sources directly connected with Swift tell TMZ Kanye called her to explain it was a joke and wanted to make sure she wouldn't be upset. We're told Swift said she got the joke and gave him the thumbs up to release the song with the lyric.

We're told Kanye and Taylor have been cool with each other since shortly after the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he jacked her moment onstage. The 2 speak on the phone from time to time and are on friendly terms.

Kanye's getting blasted by Swift fans who think he's taking a shot at her. Not the case.

We got shots of them all over the island. It's the perfect ass Wednesday chaser.  

FUN FACT: Ass worship really does pay, if you buy what happened to the guy in this video when he got pulled over by a cop. Yep ... Amber could get you out of a ticket someday (but don't count on it).
