Calvin Harris

Taylor Swift is Fine

And She's Good for Business, Too

3/28/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-calvin-harris-taylor-swfit-TMZ-01Calvin Harris went from outright rejecting Taylor Swift to embracing her, and several friends tell us, there's a business side to his change of heart.

Calvin and Taylor are now full-on dating, but just months ago he said he would left swipe her on Tinder because she's "the opposite of my type."

So why the change of heart? Our sources who are prominent in the DJ world say Calvin got to know Taylor through the Haim sisters, Taylor's best friends. Calvin and Haim have a hit song, "Pray to God," that was released earlier this month. He got to know her and liked her.

But our sources say Calvin is the best businessman among DJs and knows the cache of dating the biggest pop star in the world.  

They believe Calvin has developed feelings for Taylor, but they say he's wired for success and there's no hard dividing line separating his personal life from business. 

We feel a song.

Rich Homie Quan

Dramatic Boat Escape

... Is a Lie!!!!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0326_rich_homie_quan_gettyThere is no Santa Claus, aliens aren't real and Rich Homie Quan did NOT escape in a speedboat from the scene of an alleged assault ... so yeah, everything you've ever believed is pretty much a lie. 

RHQ is still a wanted man in Miami Beach, FL for allegedly decking a security guard who didn't let him into a club. According to the police report, Quan "fled east towards the dock where he boarded a boat in Dock 14 and took off." 

But people who were on the boat tell TMZ, that didn't happen. We're told RHQ did indeed board a yacht ... but that he partied there for at least an hour, in plain view, before taking off.

No arrests have been made, but the bodyguard isn't waiting around ... he's already filed a lawsuit against RHQ.

'Neighbors With Benefits'

Real Swingers Blast Show

We're Not All HOT!!

3/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Neighbors With Benefits" ... the new reality show about swinging couples ... blows the big one, at least according to a couple of high profile swingers on the Playboy payroll.

Michael and Holli, hosts of Playboy Radio's "Swing" ... say A&E's show takes their sensual lifestyle and makes it look like a weird sex cult -- plus it's loaded with false information about the community. 

On 'Neighbors,' which is set in Ohio, the couples flaunt their sexuality in bars and swap out in the open -- but Michael and Holli say that just ain't how it goes down. And what really pisses them off is the show's claim you have to be "hot" to partake.

The hosts insists peeps of all shapes, sizes and looks are welcome.

Just drop your keys in the bowl.

There's only one sure way to know Hollywood love is real ... shackin' up. Our real estate sources say the action star and his leading lady went 50/50 on a sprawling 5-bed, 8-bath, 7119 sq. ft. mansion that even has a waterfall pool.

The timing  is perfect -- they just celebrated 5 years of love. And the plot thickens, because Rosie's been sporting what looks like an engagement ring since December.

Mazel.

EXCLUSIVE

0327-a$ap-mob-GETTY-01A$AP Mob hurled themselves into a packed crowd in Hollywood and allowed concertgoers to do the same ... and a woman claims they left her in a world of hurt.

The group is being sued by a woman who attended their concert at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood back in 2013. Tammy Nguyen claims she was a VIP at the show when A$AP Mob took the stage at around 11PM. There was lots of crowd surfing during the evening, but it really intensified.

She says A$AP members, including Darold Ferguson, Jr. -- better known as A$AP Ferg -- were diving in the crowd, along with a bunch of fans. When Ferguson jumped, Nguyen says he nailed her.   And what's worse, she says she had to fight her way through the crowd to get out, and security didn't help.

She's suing the group and Ferguson.

Disarmed Alleged Bad Guy

EXCLUSIVE

0327-phoenix-jones-new-haven-police-TMZSPORTS_01Real-life superhero Phoenix Jones claims he's saved the day again ... this time, the MMA fighter says he chased down a stabbing suspect in Connecticut and DISARMED the perp. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Jones -- real name Ben Fodor -- filled out a statement with the New Haven PD saying he was walking down the street Friday when, "I saw a man being chased who was bleeding from his face."

Fodor -- who made headlines as a real-life crime-fighter in Seattle -- says he put on his bulletproof vest and confronted a man he believed to be the "stabbing suspect."

Jones says the man then displayed a hunting knife ... so he proceeded to disarm the alleged bad guy. Once he believed the threat was neutralized, Jones says he went back and waited with the victim until medics arrived. 

The 26-year-old undefeated MMA fighter says he captured the entire incident on his go-pro camera ... and handed the footage over to police. 

Cops confirm a report was made -- but say they are still investigating the matter ... including Phoenix's role in the incident.  

Stay tuned ...

Taraji P. Henson

I Apologize to the Cop

My Son Wasn't Profiled

3/27/2015 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0327-taraji-p-henson-TMZ-01

Taraji P. Henson just gave a public mea culpa, profusely apologizing to a police officer she accused of racism.

The "Empire" actress had accused a Glendale cop of profiling her son during a traffic stop, but the Glendale PD blew her claim out of the water by releasing dash cam video of the stop, and the cop could not have been nicer. In fact, he let Taraji's son, Marcel Johnson, skate on a traffic violation and possession of Ritalin without a prescription.

Taraji now says, "I would like to publicly apologize to the officer and the Glendale Police Department. A mother's job is not easy and neither is a police officer's."

She adds, "Sometimes as humans WE overreact without gathering all of the facts. As a mother in this case I overreacted and for that I apologize."

Our translation ... Marcel probably wasn't exactly straight with his mom on what went down.

Taraji ends by saying, "Thank you to that officer for being kind to my son."

Smart move.

Eddie Murphy Hot FamilyA Maui beach was blanketed by Eddie Murphy's smoking hot chicks this week -- one of them was his girlfriend and the other 2 were his daughters. 

Eddie's gorgeous 35-year-old Australian girlfriend Paige Butcher was there with his 25-year-old daughter Bria and his 20-year-old daughter Shayne. Murphy apparently missed out on the fun. 

Hands down ... this vacay looks better than almost all of Eddie's movies in the last 10 years.
