Calvin Harris No Kanye Collab ... I Don't Need the Taylor Backlash

7/27/2016 12:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727-kanye-west-calvin-harris-tmz-01Calvin Harris doesn't have any plans to collab with Kanye West because he knows that would play like a serious diss to Taylor Swift, which he's not trying to do ... TMZ has learned.

We spoke to sources on both sides who tell us Calvin and Kanye have not discussed making any music together, and although they have mutual respect ... they rarely speak at all. They're just not buds. There were reports Calvin wanted to record a track with 'Ye.

As for them EVER working together ... our Calvin sources say not right now because he wants to kill the narrative of being connected to Taylor. Translation: He's just done with all the drama around their breakup.

We're told during Calvin's brief run-in with Kim Kardashian at J Lo's birthday ... music, Taylor and Kanye were not discussed. It was more like pleasant salutations.

Kylie Jenner My Ass Tattoo Is Crazy

EXCLUSIVE

0727-kylie-tattoo-instagram-03Kylie Jenner's new booty ink is insane -- at least if you're taking it literally. Kylie now has the words "before sanity" inked in red across her buttcheek ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources tell us Kylie got the urge to add some new meaning to an old tattoo Saturday, so she rang up celebrity tattoo artist Rafael Valdez. He added the word "before" in front of the "sanity" tattoo Kylie got last year.

Valdez gave Ky her first tattoo, a tiny red heart. He's also Tyga's personal tattoo artist and has inked everyone from Iggy Azalea to Johnny Manziel.

The tiny tat didn't come cheap ... Valdez charges $200/hour with a $600 minimum, according to his site.

It's unclear exactly what the meaning behind Kylie's behind tattoo is -- but considering the placement -- maybe it's a metaphor?

Andy Cohen 'God Bless the NBA' For Moving All-Star Game Outta Charlotte

7/27/2016 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bravo honcho Andy Cohen is giving an extra "mazel" to the NBA Commish Adam Silver -- praising the guy for "having the balls" to move the All-Star game out of Charlotte over a local anti-LGBT law.

Just last week Silver explained, "We do not believe we can successfully host our All-Star festivities in Charlotte in the climate created by HB2." 

HB2 is the controversial bill passed in North Carolina which eliminates certain legal protections for victims of LGBT discrimination. 

Cohen couldn't be HAPPIER with the NBA's move to 86 Charlotte -- saying, "I love it! God bless the NBA."

He also ripped into North Carolina governor Pat McCrory -- who's been defending the bill for months.

"That f*****g governor, he needs to be voted out," Cohen tells TMZ Sports.

You gotta watch the clip -- Andy's fired up!

EXCLUSIVE

Lady Gaga crashed the stage at a ritzy jazz club for a surprise worth WAY more than the price of an Old Fashioned.

Gaga flew under the radar in the audience at Rose Bar's jazz night Tuesday in NYC ... that is, until she grabbed the mic. We're told it even surprised the staff, who closed the doors after she took the floor.

Check out the video ... the entire room is hanging on her every note.

Witnesses tell us Gaga sang for about 30 minutes and even played the drums in front of the intimate 50-person crowd. Afterward, she mingled and sipped cocktails until close. 

Ezekiel Elliott Accuser Takes Case to City Attorney ... Investigation Underway

7/27/2016 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722_ezekiel-elliott-TMZEzekiel Elliott's not out of the woods yet ... because his accuser in the domestic violence case has gone to the city prosecutor -- which has launched a full investigation into her allegations. 

We broke the story ... Elliott's ex-girlfriend told police the Dallas Cowboys running back struck her during an altercation in Ohio on Friday morning ... and had been physical with her earlier that week. 

Four witnesses told cops they did NOT see Elliott lay a finger on the woman -- and cops say there was not enough evidence to make an arrest.

The accuser was told to follow up with the prosecutor's office if she wanted to move forward. 

Well, now we know ... that's exactly what she did. 

The city attorney's office confirms the accuser has already spoken with investigators and doesn't appear to want to drop the case anytime soon. 

"We currently have an open investigation," a rep for the Columbus City Attorney tells TMZ Sports.

"We are collecting as much evidence as possible. Once the investigation is complete, our office will determine if there is sufficient evidence to establish probable cause. Basically, whether there is enough evidence to charge him or not."

Elliott has adamantly denied striking the woman -- and tweeted, "Evil NEVER prevails."

Keshia Knight Pulliam Bring On the Paternity Test ... I've Got Nothing to Hide

7/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam paternity testKeshia Knight Pulliam is positive Ed Hartwell is the father of her unborn child, and she's down to prove it to him.

Keshia was completely blindsided by the ex-NFL player's divorce petition earlier this week ... according to a source close to the former 'Cosby Show' star. We're told she's secure in the fact she's been 100% faithful to her husband of just 7 months, and has no idea why he'd assume otherwise.

Also, she has no objection to taking the paternity test he's requesting.

Keshia's pissed Ed ran to court to file divorce docs. We're told she firmly believes couples should work things out because that's what her parents have done to stay together for almost 40 years.

That kind of happy ending doesn't seem to be in the cards -- we're told Ed's no longer living in their house. As one source put it, "What kind of man files for divorce from his pregnant wife?"

NFL's Shiloh Keo My DUI Arrest Is 'Bull****' ... I'm Telling Obama (Cop Video)

7/27/2016 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Denver Broncos safety Shiloh Keo was PISSED at the cops during his DUI arrest back in February -- calling the situation "bull****" and threatening to tell President Obama all about it during his Super Bowl visit at the White House. 

As we previously reported, 28-year-old Keo was pulled over in Idaho on Feb. 13th for a busted taillight ... and during the stop, officers believed Shiloh was drunk. 

Keo was put in the back of a squad car -- where he waited for more than an hour -- and decided to vent about the situation to the camera inside the vehicle. And boy, did he vent. 

Not only does he call BS on the taillight situation -- but says, "Hey Obama, I can't wait to meet you bro."

"Tell you about this bull****. This is why we have riots throughout the country, cause of this bull****." 

"You wanna know why s*** is f****d? This is bull****."

Keo also said he would bet his entire NFL salary that the allegations against him -- and the broken taillight -- "ain't the truth."

He later pled guilty to misdemeanor DUI -- and a screenshot from the cop's dash cam shows the light was really out. 

So, he should probably get that check ready ...

Lindsay Lohan She Pulled a $10k Insta Rip-Off On Me ... Filmmaker Claims

7/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-lindsay-lohan-tmz-01Lindsay Lohan's got more than fiancé trouble ... a filmmaker is going after her for the $10,000 he claims he gave her without getting a damn thing in return.

Matt Martin made a movie called "Little Mermaid," not the Disney one, and approached a Lindsay associate about having her pump the flick to her nearly 5 million Instagram followers.

Matt says in the legal letter, obtained by TMZ, he struck a deal with Yossi Bechor back in October after learning he often arranged deals on Lindsay's behalf. He says the deal was $10k and executive producer credit ... for LiLo to post 3 promos for his film, but 3 months rolled by without a peep.

Martin says he's reached out to team Lindsay and Yossi several times to no avail. So now he's demanding he get the dough back, or he'll sue.

We reached out to Lindsay and Yossi, so far no word back.

Johnny Depp Amber's Gonna Ruin My Credit

7/26/2016 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-johnny-depp-amber-heard-getty-03Johnny Depp believes he can't get a fair shake in his courtroom showdown with Amber Heard until his lawyers grill her in a deposition -- and if that doesn't happen it could cost him dearly.

Depp's team was in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing to settle critical issues in the case. His side says Johnny has every right to confront Amber over her "meritless" accusations of domestic violence.

In docs, Depp says if he can't depose her he'll be behind the 8 ball in his effort to defend himself, and could lose the case. And there's this -- he's worried a loss could affect him emotionally and financially. He points out a permanent restraining order would appear on future credit checks.

Yes, even with an estimated net worth of $400 mil ... he's worried about credit.

As we reported ... Amber's depo has been delayed because they couldn't agree on a date, but the judge settled the matter. It's now scheduled for August 6 -- a Saturday.

EXCLUSIVE

0727-casting-call-tmzBeing a Blood or a Crip is now a legitimate qualification for employment, because a new show is actively seeking real-life bangers who want to be TV stars.

Central Casting is staffing up for the upcoming CBS adaptation of the movie "Training Day." Specifically, they're looking for "gang member types" of actors to portray members of L.A. area street gangs during a Wednesday shoot. 

CC would not elaborate on what it considers "gang member types."

The call out makes it clear that experience is not a prerequisite -- we're assuming they're referring to acting experience. Welcome to L.A. ... where anyone can be discovered.

Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick Insane Police Video Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint

7/26/2016 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint. 

It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case. 

Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street. 

Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine). 

It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed with him, and Vick eventually tired out ... sat down on the ground and gave himself up.

But when the trailing officer caught up to Vick -- he drew his weapon, pointed it at the seated Vick and ordered him to show his hands and get on his stomach. 

The whole thing is pretty intense ... but Vick is eventually taken into custody without further incident. 

He was later convicted of resisting arrest and sentenced to a year in jail with 11 months suspended. He also got 12 months probation.

By the way, at the end the video you can hear one of the cops say ... "If he ran I knew we weren't gonna catch him."
