Jay-Z, Kanye West Plan Summit to Bury Hatchet In Latest Feud

9/20/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Jay-Z will be meeting face-to-face soon to squash their latest beef, and if they smoke the peace pipe it will end a lawsuit that looms over their multi-million dollar Tidal dispute.

Sources close to Yeezy and Hova with direct knowledge of the situation tell us, their lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute Kanye has with Tidal. As we reported, Kanye had fired off a letter to Tidal stating his contract with them was over because Tidal didn't live up to his end of the bargain. Specifically, Kanye says he didn't get advances and bonuses that totaled $3.5 mil.

We're told Kanye and Jay have not agreed to settle, and the reason became apparent to everyone. The impasse had nothing to do with their business dispute -- $3.5 mil is peanuts to both of them. They couldn't settle because they each harbor animosity toward the other.

Jay was enraged when Kanye attacked Beyonce and Blue Ivy at his concert last October. Kanye felt Jay should have cut him a break because that was the time he was melting down and just a few weeks after the concert, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

As one source put it, "The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake."  

We're told Kanye is up for the meeting and Jay is also inclined to meet. It shouldn't be hard. Now that Jay and Bey live in a Bel-Air mansion, they are literally down the street from Kanye and Kim.

We're told the meeting should go down soon, and once it does their Tidal dispute will quickly end.

Jay-Z First Time Out in L.A. Since Twins' Birth ... Good Sign for Recovery?

6/19/2017 1:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z is out and about in L.A. and smiling like the proud new dad he is ... which could mean there's good news where Beyonce and the twins are concerned.

Jay was in West Hollywood Monday morning -- the first time he's been spotted away from the hospital since Bey gave birth almost a week ago. TMZ broke the story ... the newborn boy and girl have remained in the hospital due to a "minor issue."

Unclear what Jay-Z was doing, but he was leaving a complex that has a SoulCycle ... and we know he's been known to get his SC on from time to time.

We're told he's been at the hospital with Bey and the twins nearly round the clock, and was seen arriving there early Monday morning.

He didn't have much to say to photogs outside SoulCycle, but we're hoping the smile said it all.

We do not know the nature of the issue.

Beyonce I'm REALLY Pregnant ... Let There Be No Doubt

2/2/2017 6:48 AM PST

Beyonce's letting her belly do the talking this time around. 

She took a ton of shots showing off the twins growing inside of her ... some topless, some underwater, some with Blue Ivy. You gotta remember all the rumors when she was pregnant the first time -- conspiracy theorists insisted a surrogate did all they heavy lifting.

Well, these pics should shut those people up, quick. 

Jay Z Plays Peacemaker ... Stay Away From Bey!

5/12/2015 10:21 AM PDT

Jay Z took his "peace" t-shirt very literally Monday in Manhattan ... shedding his bodyguard's protection to go all Gandhi and squash some beef that was bubbling up way too close to Beyonce

Jay and Bey were walking out of a building when one of their long-time bodyguards swiped at a pap to move him back. Some back and forth barking started, and that's when Jay sprung into Zen action.

You gotta see how he calmly diffused the situation ... allowing Bey to slip by unscathed. 

West coast living is definitely getting to the kid from Brooklyn. 

Solange Knowles It's Hard to Fight Jay Z in That Dress

5/5/2015 8:02 AM PDT

It would be tough to punch and kick your brother-in-law when you're wearing ... whatever the hell Solange Knowles wore Monday night to the Met Gala.

Hard to believe -- but it's been a year since Beyonce's sister famously went ballistic and attacked Jay Z in an elevator ... during an after party for last year's gala. 

Meanwhile, Bey stole the whole damn night when she showed up in a ridiculous sheer nude-colored dress.

Damned if she was gonna let Solange steal the headlines this year.

Jay Z Can I Go Home Yet?

5/3/2015 2:03 PM PDT

Nobody was feeling Jay Z's after party in Las Vegas the way he was -- and that's a good thing ... 'cause from the looks of It Jay just wanted to be somewhere else.

Jay Z hosted, undoubtedly, the most exclusive Mayweather-Pacquiao bash at Marquee Nightclub Saturday night ... VIP tables went for $50k.

He and Beyoncé held court at their own table right on the dance floor -- but while the DJ was trying to get the crowd going, Jigga seemed to be dreaming ... of laying his head on his pillow.

Of course, his pillow was probably on a G6 ... WITH Bey ... so, can't blame the guy.

Tina Knowles Wedding Day #2!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Tina Knowles is getting hitched for the second time, this time on a fancy yacht ... with Beyonce and Jay Z on board!

Beyonce's 61-year-old mom is marrying 67-year-old actor Richard Lawson on Sunday evening -- and the yacht is cruising around the harbor in Newport Beach, CA.   

Everyone is dressed in white, including Blue Ivy. Solange was also there along with other relatives. The boat holds 300, and we're guessing they could fill it to capacity if they want.

Tina and Beyonce showed up around noon to check out the boat.  They left together in an SUV before returning for the ceremony.

Beyonce & Jay Z Ride or Die ... In Bed of a Pickup!!

4/9/2015 9:19 AM PDT

Surfboards, pineapples, giant bags of weed ... and Jay Z and Beyonce -- all things you typically find in the back of a pickup truck tooling around Hawaii.   

The Carters are on one of the islands for what's supposed to be a secret getaway, but there's NOTHING inconspicuous about two of the world's most popular entertainers riding in the bed of a pickup, right? By the way, it's totally legal in Hawaii.

Jay spotted the photog riding behind the truck ... and threw up a "Hang Loose." 

Maybachs look way different in the islands.

Beyonce Lunch Date ... With a Side of Boob

2/25/2015 7:15 AM PST

Beyonce was bouncing all over L.A. ... because her tatas went commando while house hunting with Jay Z

Shopping for a new home can be liberating -- and it certainly was for Bey's girls ... which got some freedom and sunshine during a lunch break at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood.

As we've reported ... Jay & Beyonce have spent several months searching for the perfect L.A. house to purchase and make their West Coast HQ.

Just a feeling, but something's gonna open up for them soon. 

Flawless. 

Jay Z & Beyonce Can't Find a House, So ... We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount. 

Jay Z Sued I'm Your Son, Just Admit It ... Says Wannabe Rapper

2/19/2015 7:40 AM PST
Breaking News

Jay Z had a love child 21 years ago and is now blocking the guy's efforts to prove he's the son of the rap mogul ... according to legal docs.

The guy's name is Rymir Satterthwaite and he claims his mother hooked up with Jay back in the early '90s -- before he was world famous, and long before Beyonce was in the picture.

Rymir and Lillie Coley -- who calls herself his legal guardian -- say in a civil suit ... Jay Z submitted fraudulent information to the court ... to intentionally torpedo Rymir's paternity claim.

It's unclear what that fraudulent info is -- but there are reports that Jay is refusing to take a paternity test.

Rymir happens to be an aspiring rapper ... who's posted vids of himself rhyming.

The civil lawsuit was handwritten by Coley ... who claims Jay's actions have caused Rymir financial and emotional damage. We've reached out to Jay Z's attorney, but so far no word back.

Kim Kardashian How Do I Shut this Kid Up? North's Epic Fashion Show Meltdown

2/13/2015 6:08 AM PST

North West is NOT a fan of daddy's new shoes ... Kim Kardashian had her hands more than full when the kid went full-on Chernobyl Thursday night at a NY fashion show.

The pics say it all ... Kim and North were front and center at Kanye West's Adidas unveiling at Fashion Week ... but North wasn't having any part of it and threw a fit.

From the looks on their faces ... Diddy, Anna Wintour, Jay Z, and Beyonce were amused/annoyed at the tantrum ... at one point Kim grabs North for a quick exit.

Maybe Kim should roll like Jay and Bey ... leave the little miracle at home.

Kids, right?
