Kim Kardashian to Rhymefest How Dare You Attack Kanye ... You Loser!!!

5/27/2018 7:01 AM PDT

10:45 AM PT -- A rep for Donda's House Inc. says it will no long use Kanye's mother's name for the non-profit, citing Kim K's attack of its director, Rhymefest. The statement encourages Kim and Kanye to "pick up the baton of service." No word yet on what the org will be called going forward.

Kim Kardashian jumped to Kanye West's defense Saturday, blasting Rhymefest for claiming he abandoned the Chicago charity named after his beloved mother, Donda.

Rhymefest -- a former and frequent musical collaborator of Ye's -- accused him of not funding the org which helps Chicago's youth, and abandoning the cause. Kim was outraged, saying, "You have the audacity to use Kanye's mom's name to try to shed a negative light on Kanye."

She wasn't done ... "You're over levergenging Kanye's name & asked Kanye to donate to u so stop w your fake community politics and lies. Truth is you haven't been able to sustain the foundation."

She says the real reason Rhymefest went on the attack was sour grapes ... "You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats." She says the Rhymefest is just pissed because Kanye wouldn't put him on one of his new albums ... "You thought you were really worthy to be on this album" ... she ended with laughing emojis.

Kim says the fam plans to take the foundation away from Rhymefest, adding, "You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda's House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run!" 

Rhymefest responded to Kim's tweets with a written statement, in which he accused her and Kanye of a "lack of interest or support" in Donda's House's efforts. He also says Kanye recently reached out to him for help on his new album ... not the other way around. 

Jay Leno Forever Young ... With an Oldie (But Goodie) Classic Car

5/27/2018 2:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Leno might be 68 years old, but he's driving like he's 25 in spirit ... and maybe about 90 or so on the road. 

The former 'Tonight Show' host was spotted revving up on the I-5 freeway in Burbank, CA Sunday in what appears to be a 1930s-inspired whip. We're not car experts, so don't quote us ... but it kinda looks like a classic '70s era Clénet -- maybe even a 1950 Bentley.

Eyewitnesses tell us Jay was driving about 55 mph in the right-most lane, flashing the peace sign at cars passing him ... and letting the wind have its way with his hair. We're told the car even backfired while he was cruising ... yeah, you know it's an oldie!

There were no other cars or cameras tailing him, so this doesn't seem to have been filmed for his series "Jay Leno's Garage," where he talks shop and tests rides like this all the time.

Oh, and don't worry ... he didn't have any major car trouble here -- unlike last time, when he had to change a tire -- as far as we know. Ah, they don't make 'em like they used to.

George H.W. Bush is in the hospital again ... just one month after he was there following his wife's death. 

Bush Sr.'s spokesperson said Sunday the former president had been hospitalized at South Maine Health Care in Biddeford after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue. The rep said he'd likely remain there for a few days for observation ... adding 41 was awake, alert and not in any discomfort.

Get well soon, sir.

Exclusive Details

Willie Nelson bailed on his show Saturday night in Charlotte, North Carolina ... apparently due to illness.

The 85-year-old country legend was set to perform at the Outlaw Music Festival and even readied his guitar with his red, white and blue strap ... but quickly unstrapped himself, hurled his hat into the crowd and walked off stage.

He seemed pissed, but Live Nation Carolina said Willie was under the weather and just couldn't put on a performance. Live Nation asked fans to hold on to their tickets for a new concert date. It's unclear if they've offered refunds.

Some of the concertgoers said he had walked off stage earlier in the evening but walked right back off. They say they waited an hour the second time around before someone said the concert was off.

A rep for Willie tells TMZ Willie had a stomach bug but he's now well enough that he'll perform Sunday night in Washington D.C. He also promises to do a make good for his North Carolina fans.

5/27/2018 7:13 AM PDT

Scott Disick has been tamed by a woman close to half his age.

Scott turned 35 Saturday and he spent it with 19-year-old gf Sofia Richie on St. Barts. For her part, Sofia is in hook, line and sinker, telling the world, "Happy Birthday babe! Thank you for being you. Love you."

The 2 have been together now for a year and word is they've gotten super serious.

It also looks like Scott and Kourtney Kardashian have made peace ... if only for the sake of their 3 kids.

Scott has a pilot in the works where he's flipping houses in the L.A. area with super realtor Tomer Fridman ... and guess who's behind the project? If you guessed Kris Jenner you would be correct!

EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey says she'd be honored to host the Indiana school teacher who risked his life to save his students during a shooting this week ... assuming the guy's a fan of WWE.

We got Ronda touching down in D.C. Sunday ahead of Monday Night Raw in neighboring Richmond, VA, and she tells us she'd have no problem allowing 29-year-old Jason Seaman of Noblesville West Middle School walk her into the ring at one of her matches.

In case you hadn't heard, Jason is being hailed as a hero after he's said to have tackled an unnamed suspect who opened fire in one of his classes Friday, saving countless lives.

'Evil Genius' FBI Agent Prostitute's Shocking Confession ... Is Pretty Much B.S.

5/27/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The FBI elite agent who investigated the murder of Brian Wells -- a case that inspired Netflix's 'Evil Genius' -- isn't buying the shocking twist at the end of the documentary ... at least not most of it.

Dr. Jerry Clark -- who's heavily featured in the 4-part doc -- tells TMZ ... former prostitute Jessica Hoopsick's confession doesn't mesh with loads of evidence and investigatory work he did for years, so he doesn't believe she's credible.

If you haven't seen it, a big mystery of 'Evil Genius' is how much Wells knew about the bank heist that led to his death -- Jessica claims he knew nothing and she helped set him up ... but Jerry strongly refutes that and has some solid reasons.

Clark does agree with Jessica on one major component ... and 'Evil Genius' fans are going to want to hear his take on Marjorie Diehl-Armstrong and Bill Rothstein, too.

They should also check out what the director of the documentary, Trey Borzillieri, told us about Floyd Stockton.

FYI -- Clark spent 27 years in local and federal law enforcement, and retired from the FBI in 2011. He now teaches criminal justice at Gannon University.

Ben Foster & Laura Prepon First (Legal) Steps to Tie the Knot

5/27/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ben Foster and Laura Prepon appear to be inching closer to husband and wife -- 'cause they hit up the one place in NYC they gotta go to make it happen. 

The couple of about 2 years waited in line this week for the City Clerk, where marriage licenses are issued to residents. We don't wanna get ahead of ourselves -- there are lots of reasons Ben and Laura could've been at that office.

Maybe they were enrolling as lobbyists, requesting City Council transcripts or submitting their Oaths of Office as elected officials. Okay, definitely not the last one, but you get the point ... marriage license seems to fit the bill here. 

As we reported ... Ben and Laura announced their engagement by flashing her massive rock in the fall of 2016. They already have 1 kid together.

We've reached out to their reps, but no word back yet.

Fun fact: the marriage license is only good for 60 days, so go ahead and cue up "Here Comes the Bride" ... they're gonna need it soon. 

Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jxmmi Sees Nothing But Diamonds ... Through $125k Goggles!!

5/27/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rae Sremmurd rapper Slim Jxmmi's problem isn't double vision, it's diamond vision ... but that'll happen when you ice out 2 high-priced watches and turn them into eyewear.

Slim got all 'Mad Max' on his timepieces by combining them to make what we imagine is probably the first ever pair of watch-goggles. 

Slim gave his Audemars and Rolex Yacht-Master watches -- more than $50k each -- to Houston celebrity jeweler ZoFrost, and told him to go to town.

It's a cool idea for those who don't wanna see, but definitely want to be seen.

With the diamonds and the connecting Dior strap, we're told the end product's worth about $125k. Best of all, the whole process is reversible -- just in case Slim wants the watches back on his wrists.
