Kanye West

Obama Is BS'ing ...

He DEFINITELY Has My Number

3/14/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama LIED to Jimmy Kimmel -- at least that's what Kanye West says -- but the rapper insists he's got nothing but love for the Prez.

Kimmel asked Barack Thursday night if he ever called Kanye at home -- something the rapper recently claimed. The Prez said, "I don't think I've got his home number."

But we got Kanye at LAX Friday ... and the rapper squared off with O -- reiterating that Obama has called Kanye's home.

And there's this ... What the hell happened to this guy??? He's becoming the nicest celeb in La La Land.

Terrence Howard

Who's Iman Shumpert?!

3/13/2015 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If "Empire" really did rip off one of its characters from real-life NBA star Iman Shumpert -- you can't blame Terrence Howard ... 'cause Terrence says he's honestly never even heard of the guy. 

As we previously reported, Iman suggested that producers based the characters of Hakeem and Tiana after him and his GF Teyana Taylor ... and pointed to their hairstyles as evidence. 

0313-inman-shumpertBut if that's true ... it's definitely news to the star of the show, Terrence Howard ... who told us he doesn't know Iman and he doesn't watch basketball. 

That's ok ... Iman says he doesn't watch "Empire" either.

Miley and Patrick

In Love, and Dropping the M Word

3/13/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger are full-on in love, and have even casually said in front of friends they will get married some day.

Multiple sources connected with Miley and Patrick tell us their relationship is intense. Miley is going out of her way to impress Patrick's mom, Maria Shriver, and it goes beyond dressing conservatively when Miley's around her. The conversations do not resemble what Miley puts out on social media.

The couple has partied hard, and initially people who spent time with them thought it was just a hook-up, but it's proven to be deeper.  

And we're told it's not like one is pushing the other into getting serious. They're both totally into it.

Tiny

Me At The Mayweather Fight?

Not A Chance In Hell

3/13/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I.'s wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle obviously knows when to leave well enough alone ... telling TMZ Sports there's not a chance in hell she'll be in Vegas for the huge Mayweather/Pacquiao fight on May 2.

You might remember ... T.I. ran up on Mayweather at a Las Vegas Fatburger last year and a gigantic fracas ensued. Floyd claimed the dust up happened because T.I. thought he was banging Tiny.

Well it's clear that Tiny wants no part in a rematch between the two men 'cause when we got her out at LAX recently and asked if she'll be attending the mega fight ... she couldn't have been more clear.

"We won't be there."

Good news for Floyd though ... she said he's gonna pull it out.

We meant the fight T.I., calm down.

Kylie Jenner & Khloe Kardashian

Double Date With

Guys They Aren't 'Dating'

3/9/2015 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner went on a double non-date Sunday night with the guys who everyone says they're dating but they insist they're not.

Khloe and French Montana hit The Forum Sunday night in Inglewood to see the Chris Brown/Tyga concert. And wouldn't you know it ... Tyga arrived to the show with Kylie in tow. 

Kylie and Tyga's relationship is the worst kept secret in town ... especially after Kanye West went on the radio last month and said they were in love.

As for Khloe and French ... as TMZ first reported, the two spent a few days last week in Key West. They arrived back in town Sunday morning and were met at the airport by a slew of paps.

To Piss Off Lisa Rinna

3/5/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Lisa Rinna FightKim Richards is great at creating drama on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- and even better at creating stories ... TMZ has learned.

If you missed it ... Richards accused fellow cast member Lisa Rinna of hiding a family secret involving her husband Harry Hamlin -- prompting Lisa to do the whole shout, threaten, and shatter a glass thing the 'Housewives' do so well.

Fans have been speculating wildly about what dirt Kim has on Hamlin -- but we've learned she made the whole thing up just to get under Rinna's skin.

Production sources tell us the issue will be brought up again on the reunion episode -- and Kim will admit she created the whole story.

Fake or not ... it made for great TV.

Nothing like a second chance -- Hillary Clinton ran into our intrepid D.C. photog on Wednesday ... giving him a shot at redemption on that whole email mess.

If you missed it ... Colin shot Hillary on Tuesday, and chose to tackle a topic other than her private emails.

Lo and behold, he ran into her again at Reagan National, and this time he got right to it -- firing off the question everyone wants her to address. Well ... he got closer anyway.

Generation gaps, generalization gaps -- tomato, tomahto ... check out the interaction.

Anderson Silva

I'm Not a Cheater

[Video]

3/4/2015 6:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anderson Silva tells TMZ Sports ... he did NOT use performance enhancing drugs to give him an edge in the octagon ... saying he's genuinely SHOCKED he failed his drug tests. 

The UFC legend was out in L.A. when we asked straight up -- how do you explain the failed drug tests surrounding the January 31st fight at UFC 183 with Nick Diaz???

His answer -- "I don't know what happened."

Silva says he was completely blindsided by the results -- but does NOT believe anything in his system affected his performance in the fight. 

Anderson sorta acknowledges taking something to help his body heal after badly breaking his leg -- but says he's convinced he didn't violate any rules. 

Still, Silva understands how bad the failed tests make him look -- "I think this is bad for [the] sport. This is so bad for me and my life."

Anderson says he wants a REMATCH with Nick Diaz to prove his victory is legit -- and even has a message for 50 Cent -- save that $1.6 MILLION he was planning to bet on Mayweather ... and put it on him! 

Hillary Clinton

Emails, Schmeemails ...

Tell TMZ You're Running!

3/4/2015 6:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Our D. C. photog had a choice ... ask Hillary Clinton about the whole email thing, or try to get a declaration she's running for Prez ... sadly, he picked door number 2.

Fact is ... Hillary would have probably been mum on the email controversy, so at least Colin had some fun.

update_graphic_red_barWe got a second run at Hillary ... and got out the email question! Check out the results.

Kevin Hart & Ellen DeGeneres

Oscars' Past Meets Its Future ...

Possibly, We Hope

3/3/2015 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If there's one thing Kevin Hart knows ... it's how to build anticipation -- well, that and comedy -- and he fueled up the Oscars hosting hype train with his dinner date Monday night.

Kevin hit up Craig's with Ellen DeGeneres -- making us think he might be looking for tips on how to land the 2016 Oscars gig ... for which he's been rumored to be a candidate.

The buzz has been building since the second NPH wrapped up this year's debacle, and this video will certainly add to it.

Ellen didn't say much about the meeting, but all 5'4" of Kevin did play bodyguard for her as she walked to her car -- which is funny enough to see. 

Leo DiCaprio & Rihanna

First Photo!!

Banging But It's a Little One-Sided

3/2/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227_rihanna_leonardo_dicaprio_splash_SPLITRihanna and Leo DiCaprio should be a perfect match -- neither's into settling down with one person for too long -- but now that they're banging ... one of them is way more committed than the other.

We got pics of RiRi and Leo getting cozy recently at her birthday party -- which he helped organize -- and sources at the bash tell us one thing was clear ... Rihanna's the clingy one.

We're told Leo is affectionate enough -- they engaged in plenty of PDA -- but he could barely get a moment to himself. As one source put it, "she's the baddest bitch in the party, but she's following him everywhere."

We're told they've been hooking up for about 3 months, but it's still not exclusive -- more like they're each other's first choice. Not that anyone's crying for either of them.

Khloe Kardashian

Saving Her Voice

To Talk Fashion?

3/2/2015 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Osbourne is out and Khloe Kardashian is in at "Fashion Police" ... maybe ... depending on how you view this clip.

It didn't take long for rumors to start flying that Khloe -- who covered Oscars red carpet fashions for E! --might fill Kelly's shoes over at 'FP.' So, Sunday at LAX a photog asked her straight up about joining Kathy Griffin and Melissa River's team.

Watch ... Khloe's definitely playing it close to the vest, but y'know -- sometimes people say less when there's more on the line.

EXCLUSIVE

030115_rob_ryan_launch

Dez Bryant is getting some major support from one of his former Dallas Cowboys coaches ... who tells TMZ Sports the rumors of an alleged Ray Rice-style tape are complete B.S.

We spoke with Rob Ryan -- the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys in 2011 and 2012 -- who's adamant there's NO tape. Period.

"That's a bunch of bull," Ryan told us ... "Dez is an awesome guy. He's a great competitor and probably the best receiver in football."

Ryan is currently working for the New Orleans Saints -- but he's still very plugged in with the Cowboys.

As for Dez, his family believes someone is trying to sabotage his NFL future by going pubic with rumors of an alleged tape.

So far, no one has publicly acknowledged they've actually seen the supposed tape.
