Taylor Swift Alleged Butt Grabber Interview Disappears ... She Denies Strong-arming

12/4/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

12001_David-Mueller_taylor_swift_tmz_twitterThe radio interview with the guy accused of grabbing Taylor Swift's ass was abruptly removed from the station's website -- and there are conflicting stories about who pulled the plug.

Former radio DJ David Mueller went on iHeart's "Mojo in the Morning" show Tuesday and gave his side of the story. It was the first time he had a chance to plead his innocence publicly. But sources connected to iHeart tell us the entire audio clip was deleted from Mojo's website at the demand of Taylor's people.

We're told soon after the interview was posted online, the 'Mojo' crew got a call from iHeart honchos to remove it ... in order to preserve the company's good relationship with Taylor. She regularly performs at iHeartRadio shows.

Our sources say no specific reason was given for why the honchos wanted it down, but it doesn't take a genius to figure it out. Mueller came off as a sympathetic figure as he explained his side of the infamous run-in with Taylor.

1110-taylor-swift-ass-grab-tmzAn iHeart spokesperson denies Taylor was involved. The rep did not provide any explanation for the Mueller clip's removal. Sources close to Taylor tell the same story -- it wasn't me. Ditto for Mueller's legal team.

Whoever wanted it killed has a problem though -- the interview's been recorded, so it lives on.

12/4/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Oscar De La Hoya has proclaimed himself single -- which apparently means his longtime marriage to pop singer Millie Corretjer is down for the count.

Oscar made the announcement while partying at 1 OAK nightclub on the Sunset Strip this week ... saying, "Guess what ... I'm single!"

Oscar and Millie married in 2001. They have 2 children together.

We contacted Oscar's rep, Stefan Friedman, for comment and he gave us the following statement:

"Oscar's personal life is just that -- personal."

Freidman adds, "While some in and outside the boxing world -- for their own personal gain -- have for years tried to damage and degrade Oscar and Golden Boy Promotions, the truth is that both are thriving and will continue to for many years to come."

'Frozen' Look-Alike Nude Pics Are Too Fat To Be Me!

12/4/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-anna-faith-elsa-scared-INSTAGRAM-01Anna Faith Carlson, the model who's a dead ringer for Elsa from "Frozen," is claiming a website posted fake nude pics of her ... and says the proof is in the waistline.

The site Celeb Jihad posted a bunch of "before-and-after" nude selfies it claims are Anna showing off a recent boob job. The pics show a topless woman with tan lines, and bandages under her breasts. It appears to be a post-op shot.

Anna's team claims that's not her in the pics, insisting the nude chick is "much heavier than Anna has ever been in her life." They added, Anna is in "great shape with a very small waist" ... unlike the alleged impostor.

They say there are also differences in the nose, teeth and face that prove Anna's NOT the nudie pic chick. Her camp is threatening to sue if the post isn't deleted.

So, no -- she's not willing to let it go.

G-Eazy Cops Called To Video Shoot After Pissed Off Man Allegedly Attacks Crew

12/3/2016 12:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-g-eazy-tmz-01G-Eazy got some unwanted company at a recent music video shoot after a man allegedly attacked his crew simply because they were filming on his block.

Sources close to the rapper say he was in an L.A. neighborhood Thursday making the video. We're told things were running smoothly until one resident took issue with the production on his street. Our source says the elderly man became irate, at one point trying to take a generator and punching a producer.

We're told the situation got even more heated and a scuffle ensued with both sides calling the cops, who showed up, took a report and diffused the situation.

Law enforcement sources tell us they responded to take a report but no arrests were made.

It ain't easy bein' Eazy.

Kanye West Meds Are the Issue

12/3/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-kanye-west-tmzKanye West is out of the hospital but not out of the woods, and it all stems from the rapper's erratic pattern of taking his meds ... sources connected with the family tell TMZ.

Our sources say Kanye has long suffered from psychological issues controllable by medication. We're told Kanye is steady on his meds, but deviated from the prescribed dosage ... and that's what led to the downward spiral and eventual mental breakdown.

It's still unclear if Kanye flat-out stopped taking some of the pills or just decided to take different amounts -- but we're told he made the biggest changes in the wake of Kim's Paris robbery. Doctors were able to keep Kanye in the hospital for 8 days, and during that time were able to medicate him, and get him more stable.

We're told he's getting outpatient treatment and he's okay right now, but since he's not under 24/7 observation ... it's up to him to stay on the correct dosage.

Kourtney Kardashian I'm Still Riding with Disick But Not Like That

12/3/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-kourtney-kardashian-scott-disick-TMZ-01Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are together, just not ALL the way together -- nudge nudge, wink wink -- TMZ has learned.

We're told Kourtney and Scott are on better terms than they've been in years -- he's staying clean, and has been a present father -- but she still isn't sold enough to make a romantic leap.

Rumors that Scott's already won her back just aren't true, according to our sources ... who say Kourt insists there's no intimacy. We're told Scott still stays at his own house, and although they often travel together ... it's purely for co-parenting.

But as for the future -- she's open to the idea of an encore from the Lord.

Joe McKnight New Photo of Gasser After Shooting ... Witness Says He Screamed At Body

12/3/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202-joe-mcknight-shooter-ronald-gasser-picture-scene-of-accident-crime-TMZ-SPORTS-01TMZ Sports has obtained a photo of Ronald Gasser moments after he shot Joe McKnight ... and the witness who took the photo says he WAS yelling at McKnight's body after the fatal shots were fired.

The person who took the photo says the item on Ronald's blue Infiniti is the gun he used to shoot the ex-NFL running back. 

The witness -- who is NOT the same person who spoke with NOLA.com -- says she heard the two men arguing on Thursday afternoon ... while she was visiting a nearby business. The witness says she spoke with officers at the scene and gave them her information but hasn't heard from them since.

After the shots were fired, the witness says she distinctly remembers seeing Gasser over McKnight's body ... and heard him yelling at the downed football star, "I told you I was going to f**k you up."

She says Gasser was pacing back and forth with his gun in his hand for a few moments after the shooting ... and then put the gun on the trunk of his car.

The witness says Gasser then took the gun and put it inside of his car while waiting for police to arrive.

When cops arrived, we're told he calmly informed officers the gun was inside his car and was cooperative.

We reached out to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Dept. for comment but haven't heard back -- however, officials are adamant Gasser did NOT fire a shot while standing over McKnight's body. 

The JPSO says it's still investigating the case and hunting for more witnesses.

12/3/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130-tiny-house-nation-fyiA contractor for "Tiny House Nation" has a big problem -- the couple who hired him is talking so much smack, they're crushing his bottom line ... according to the lawsuit he just filed.

Charles Brzezinski built a compact pad for Jared Logan and Vanessa Wesley on season 3 of the FYI reality show, but says they've since accused him of being a fraud and doing a shoddy job.

According to the docs ... Brzezinski says the couple posted a lengthy negative review on a consumers website accusing him of being an unlicensed contractor and crappy builder.

The contractor also says the couple posted pics that show the home falling apart -- but he says the images are of lousy work Jared and Vanessa did by themselves ... after construction was complete.

tiny_house_nation_damages_footer2Brzezinski says the negative online reviews have cost him tons in business and trashed his reputation. He's suing to get the couple to delete the review, and for more than $1 million in damages.

He also points out Jared and Vanessa happily signed a certificate of completion when the house was done ... and even has this video showing the place was immaculate when they got the keys.

Tony Gonzalez I'm Cool With Gates Breaking My Record ... And So Is My Hot Wife

12/3/2016 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Not only is Tony Gonzalez okay with Antonio Gates taking over his all-time tight end touchdown record ... his ridiculously beautiful wife is too ... both giving a thumbs-up to Gates to take a part of TG's legacy.

Gonzalez currently holds the all-time NFL record for TD catches by a TE at 111, but Gates is on his heels with 109 ... and will probably pass him any week now with the way the Chargers chuck the ball.

So, when we got Gonzalez out in BH with his gorgeous (sorry we keep saying it, Tony, but it's true) wife, October, we had to know ... how does it feel to get your name wiped off the history books?

Tony also chimes in on whether or not Gates should get anything for Philip Rivers -- the guy who tossed him all those TD's ... Gates said he wasn't ... Tony has some ideas.

Drake Bodyguard Roped into Battery Case

12/3/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130-drake-delilah-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar10:17 AM PST -- A witness at Delilah that night tells us Drake was not there -- and there's a private bathroom for celebs -- so even if he was, he'd never cross paths with the man claiming assault. update_grey_gray_barDrake got dragged into a crappy mess after one of his bodyguards allegedly punched a man in the face because he wouldn't get his ass out of the bathroom.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a clubgoer filed a battery report Tuesday with the L.A. County Sheriff claiming he was assaulted at Delilah in West Hollywood.

The man told cops he was at the club on Nov. 5 when security tried clearing the bathroom ... so Drake could use it in private, he claims. He says, out of nowhere, he got clocked in the face.

Based on social media pics ... the alleged victim told cops he thinks it was one of Drake's bodyguards who socked him. Cops are now investigating, but Drake is not a suspect.

We've reached out to Delilah, but haven't heard back.

Super Bowl Champ Walter Thurmond Oregon Needs Chip Kelly Back ... He's The Best Option

12/3/2016 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chip Kelly claims he's not interested in returning to Oregon ... but that's not keeping Walter Thurmond from hoping his old coach returns to Eugene ... 'cause the ex-Ducks star says "he's the best candidate."

Thurmond -- a member of Oregon's 2009 Pac 10 champion team -- disagrees with the decision to fire Mark Helfrich after a 4-8 season, but says Kelly would be the best fit to come back to Oregon's sidelines.

"I think knowing the coach, knowing the atmosphere, knowing the people, I think that would be the best candidate to be able to bring him back."

Kelly went 46-7 as Oregon's coach from 2009-12, and told reporters earlier this week that he wasn't interested in the gig ... but Thurmond thinks it could be all talk.

"He did the same thing before he said he was coming out to the NFL, so you never know with him."
