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

2/12/2016 6:23 AM PST 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.

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.

EXCLUSIVE

News anchor Tomi Lahren flexed her First Amendment rights all over Beyonce and her fans ... and took a strong stance against the Black Panthers.

Lahren is TheBlaze anchor who got flooded with death threats after she bashed Bey for repping the Black Panthers during the Super Bowl -- and she came on "TMZ Live" Thursday to deliver a message to her haters.

She also went hard against the Panthers, while declaring her love for Martin Luther King, Jr.

Some of her historical facts are off, but there's no doubting 23-year-old Lahren's passion.

Derek Fisher Photo Matt Barnes Is Gonna Hate This ...

2/11/2016 9:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0210-fisher-govan-ig-01Here's Derek Fisher posing with his girlfriend Gloria Govan -- on their way to an international birthday celebration together. 

So, Matt Barnes is gonna hate this, right? 

You remember ... Barnes hates Fisher's guts -- because they used to be friends and Matt feels he violated the bro code by dating his baby mama. In fact, they fought over it last year and Matt has still vowed to beat up Fisher when they cross paths in the future.

Which brings us to this pic, which Gloria posted -- and then almost immediately removed from her Instagram.

Our good friends at BSO captured the shot ... and believe Glo removed it because she knows the pic will piss off Barnes and start a brand new round of beef. 

Question is ... if Glo and Fisher are serious (and it seems like they are) -- when is it time to be able to do normal coupley thing like post vacation pics and not worry about a violent aftermath? 

Stevie J to Nick Cannon I Banged Mariah Twice

Nick Cannon got more than he bargained for when some "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars went on his show and one bragged about banging his estranged wife.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were guests on "Wild 'N Out" Monday when the 2 ex-lovebirds squared off during the rap battle against Nick and his crew. It started out all fun and games, but got progressively nasty. At one point Stevie J said he banged Mariah Carey not once but twice.

Nick got pissed off, and then told Stevie J he should worry about Joseline because she was sleeping with Rick Ross.  

It got down and dirtier, to the point Nick threatened the old Hollywood adage, "You'll never work in this town again," because he has so many TV shows and connections.

Eyewitnesses tell us it looked like they were about to come to blows, so producers stepped in, separated them and calmed them down. The picture we got tells part of the story.

Future Ciara's Lawsuit's a Joke She Made Money Off Bad Mouthing Me!

2/10/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_future_ciara_tmzCiara's throwing $15 million rocks from inside a giant glass house ... which is why Future thinks she doesn't have a chance in hell of winning a dime off him. 

Sources close to Future tell TMZ, the rapper thinks it's absurd his baby mama filed the slander suit, since she's talked plenty of trash on him. We're told he believes Exhibit A is her 2015 platinum selling hit, "I Bet." 

With lyrics like ... "You know that it hurts your pride but you thought the grass was greener on the other side. I bet you start loving me as soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you” -- the song is widely believed to be about Future allegedly cheating on Ciara.

Our source says he could've sued over that, but didn't want to be petty. As for whether he fires back with a lawsuit now -- we're told he's considering it, but hasn't seen Ciara's docs yet. His team claims the process server at LAX failed to deliver.

Bottom line: it's a safe bet this is gonna get much uglier.

Ted Cruz Is a P***y Website Goes Live Thanks for the Idea, Donald!

2/9/2016 3:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0209-ted-cruz-site-tedcruzisapussy-02Still too early to call New Hampshire, but the Internet is definitely loving Donald Trump's declaration about Ted Cruz and uh ... cats.

Less than 24 hours after Donald said, "He's a p***y!" -- someone hit up Go Daddy and snatched the domain, tedcruzisap***y.com. No word on who cyber-squatted the phrase -- they've chosen to stay anonymous.

Predictably, the page touts the Trump campaign -- but also includes this vocabulary lesson: "pusillanimous" ... showing a lack of courage or determination.

We know what you're thinking. We're told the Donald's campaign had nothing to do with it.

2/9/2016 11:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just watch ... Shkreli and his goon squad might want to stand down

Wu-Tang moms ain't nothing to f*** with!

Matt Barnes Trolling Derek Fisher?

2/8/2016 9:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020816-matt-barnes-instagramMatt Barnes posted this pic on Instagram moments after his nemesis Derek Fisher was fired by the Knicks. 

So ... this is total shade, right? 

Look, it coulda just been bad timing and Barnes just wanted to show off his swag (he is after all a very fashionable guy). 

Then again, he hates Fisher's guts and the look on his face says -- "Take that, bitch."

We're going with option #2 ... but hey, choose your own adventure.

Abby Lee Miller Warring Over $5 Deal ... I'll Insta-Bomb On You, Pizza Hut!!

2/5/2016 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-abby-lee-miller-pizza-tmz-02update_graphic_red_bar10:30 AM PT -- We checked and the Pizza Hut Abby called does not offer the $5 flavor menu -- it's a national deal, but individual stores don't have to honor it. update_grey_gray_bar

Abby Lee Miller treated a Pizza Hut manager like a pre-teen girl in a tutu -- unleashing her social media soldiers on the guy after an argument over her order.

The "Dance Moms" instructor went ballistic Thursday night when she called a PH in Santa Monica to place an order. Our well placed pizza sources tell us Abby was put on hold, like anyone else might be.

When a PH employee got on the line, we're told she inquired about the "$5 pizza deal" ... but when the employee didn't know what that was, Abby got pissed and asked for a manager. 

We're told the convo got heated. Abby claims PH hung up on her, and then she hit the nuclear button -- posting the store's phone # to her 2 million Instagram followers, asking them to call "the idiot who keeps hanging up on paying customers." 

0205-sub-abby-lee-miller-instagram-01Our sources say the store was flooded with calls until closing, and it was so bad they had to stop answering the phones. We're told PH has been reaching out to Abby, asking her to take down the post as they're concerned it will continue to screw up business, but she hasn't responded.

BTW, seems Abby was asking about the $5 flavor menu. The lady knows her pizza!

Game 'Mascot of a Transvestite' Won't See a Dime!!!

2/4/2016 7:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-the-game-priscilla-rainey-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

update_graphic_red_bar4:28 PT PM -- Priscilla Rainey's lawyer, Brad Edwards, tells TMZ Game's tirade is "outrageous," adding, "It is extraordinarily troubling that [Game] has decided to use his celebrity to spread such extreme and hurtful lies with the malicious intent of causing Ms. Rainey catastrophic humiliation and reputational damage."

The lawyer says his client is "devastated by [Game's] knowingly false claims about her."update_grey_gray_bar

The Game has gone ballistic on the woman who just scored a legal victory in a $10 million lawsuit against him, calling her a "thirsty Gatorade mascot of a transvestite."

Game was reacting to a sexual assault lawsuit filed by Priscilla Rainey, who claimed Game crossed the line during his TV reality show, "She's Got Game."

Game didn't respond to the lawsuit so a judge just entered a $10 mil default.

Game scoffed on Instagram, saying he will have the default undone, adding, "Soon as I get home, me & my lawyers will EAT THIS CASE like a box of Minion Twinkies on sale at Walmart!" 

He calls her a "Thot Bot" and says she won't get enough money to buy her "a lifetime supply of lace front hair glue."

Game denies even touching Rainey on the show and says she was upset she got kicked off and that "made her lil wee wee hard so she did what all chicks like her do when life gives them no other options ... They sue you!"

He goes nuts on her, saying her "mustache is probably a bit longer than it was during taping," and then using various hashtags, including, #HairyAssUnderArms and #BitchWasUsingMyOldSpice."

We've reached out to Rainey's attorney, but no word back yet.

Wiz Khalifa closed the book on his nasty feud with Kanye West -- but before he did, he made it clear that Yeezy bowed to him.

Wiz was on Power 105 in NYC with Angie Martinez, and broke down the peace accord the rappers reached after a phone convo. As we first reported, the guys talked first on Monday morning -- and hours later Kim and Amber followed suit.

However, what we didn't know is ... who first extended the olive branch.

LisaRaye McCoy and singer Dencia's feud over a skin whitening cream is getting so heated ... even Martin Luther King Jr.'s becoming collateral damage.

We got Dencia outside Mr Chow, where she told us her lawyer's drafting a lawsuit against LisaRaye. Dencia owns a cream called Whitenicious, and as we first reported ...she's accusing LisaRaye of saying it causes cancer.

For the record, LisaRaye says she actually said, "whitealicious."

But check out this video ... Cameroon native Dencia blasts her enemies for attacking a "young black girl from Africa" ... and then she drags MLK Jr. and Malcolm X into the mess.

This is one way to mark Black History Month. Just not a great one.
