Kanye West

I Did NOT Cheat on Kim K

6/12/2013 9:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0612_kanye_coleman
Kanye West insists he did NOT cheat on Kim Kardashian with a Canadian model/bartender -- telling TMZ, the woman accusing him of being unfaithful is just out for some easy publicity.

24-year-old Leyla Ghobadi recently did an interview claiming she met Kanye at one of his concerts in July 2012 -- three months after Kim and Kanye began dating. She says Kanye had his security pick her out of the crowd and they went for drinks after.

She claims they later engaged in two sexual encounters -- one while Kim was pregnant -- and that Kanye confessed his relationship to Kim was a sham in order to increase his fan base.

But a rep for Kanye says it's all BS -- telling us, "This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources."

The rep adds, "This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives."

Kim Kardashian's bff Jonathan Cheban -- a regular on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" -- found himself in the middle of an airport emergency when a woman on his plane threatened to stab him with a knife.

Cheban was flying from JFK to LAX -- when a woman on his flight tweeted at him, "Jonathan Cheban is on my flight, should I cut him with my weapon?"

She added in another tweet, "I gotta pretty intense pocket knife with mehhh."

Cheban, a former PR exec, responded, "Police?"

When the plane landed at LAX, the woman was escorted off by police and subsequently detained. We're told cops were deeply concerned about her claim that she got a knife through airport security.

She later tried to bury the hatchet, tweeting back at Cheban, "It was a bad joke ... you look really hot babe." But airport police weren't taking any chances.

Police searched the woman outside the plane and determined she did NOT actually have a knife. She was subsequently released without further incident.

Cheban tells TMZ, he never personally alerted authorities -- someone else reported the tweets -- but later in Bev Hills he admitted the incident was very "scary."

Kanye West

Parties with Rap Gods ...

But Where's Kim K?

6/9/2013 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
0609_kanye_jayz_nas_instagramKanye West celebrated his 36th birthday last night in New York City with the likes of Jay-Z and Nas -- but some sites are calling out the fact that Kim wasn't there ... but that's just plain crazy.

West is the headliner for tonight's Governors Ball in NYC, so he had to be on the right coast for his birthday. Kim -- who is roughly 100 months pregnant -- is in Los Angeles and cannot travel for health reasons ... so clearly she could not be there. 

But while we're here, let's discuss more important things ...



Kim Kardashian's Crazy Aunt

Spills Baby Shower Secrets

Exclusive Details
060313_karan_houghton_launchKim Kardashian did her best to keep the goings on inside her baby shower yesterday a secret, but she failed to wrangle her crazy Aunt Karen ... who blabbed all about the party to the paps ... but some of what she said was just plain wrong. 

Karen Haughton, who is Kris Jenner's sister, clearly had a good time and was as chatty as can be as she made her way out. She struck up conversations with photogs and posed for pics with fans ... all while she spilled details of what went on inside.

Karen -- who may have had a mimosa or 2 -- had a couple of teeny-weeny facts wrong:

-- She said the guests scored Rolexes as shower gifts (not true)
-- Kanye and Kim are the same height (not true)
-- She says she ate cake, and then seconds later said there was no cake, just cookies

Aunt Karen, you're welcome at our baby shower any time.

Bruce Is Losing It

He's Met Kanye A BUNCH

Bruce Jenner
's memory is disappearing faster than Kim's figure ... because the Kardashian patriarch has met Kanye West SEVERAL times, despite claiming he's only met the rapper once -- and Kim is pissed at her stepdad for saying it.

We've done our research -- and came up with at least FOUR different occasions where Bruce and Kanye were both present ... Kourtney's baby shower in May 2012, a taping of "X Factor" in November 2012, a Clippers game in December 2012, and the Kardashian family Christmas party.

0603_kardashians_lakers-game-sub_ESPN
The photographic evidence contradicts what Bruce told Extra this weekend ... that he only met Kanye once in his entire life, saying, "[Kanye is] not around."

We're told Kim's upset with her 63-year-old stepdad ... because Bruce makes it sound like Kanye doesn't care about the family.

And here's a clue that maybe Bruce isn't so into Kanye -- back in April, 2012, he said he was "not that excited" when Kim started dating the rapper ... because he felt Kim was rushing into a new relationship too quickly after leaving Kris Humphries.

Bad memory or bad feelings?  We report ... you decide.

We're just sayin'.

Almost Flashes

Her Babymaker

0530_kim_kardashian_GSIA wardrobe malfunction turned Kim Kardashian into the brunette Marilyn Monroe.

While walking around Santa Monica in flats on Wednesday, the pregnant 32-year-old let a breeze get the best of her maternity dress ... and almost flashed more than just her baby bump.

Although she's no stranger to showing off the goods, Kanye West's baby mama recovered in time to make sure the photo was rated PG.

Even when she attempts to keep her maternity style casual, Kim can't help but make a spectacle.'

Kardashian Fam

Sisters & Mom Dragged

Into Porn Spoof

5/28/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0527_kardashian_porn_compositeIt's the closest thing to a Kardashian family sex tape you'll ever get ... a K-fam porn spoof -- and everyone from Kim to Kris ... and even Khloe are getting the XXX treatment.

TMZ has learned ... porn star Kiara Mia -- star of "Bra Busters 4" and "Shrimp Fried P****" -- is taking on the Kardashian fam in her directorial debut ... a parody of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

We're told there are no plans to mock Kim's infamous sex tape with Ray J in the film -- but a Ray-J-alike will make an appearance during a sex scene between not-Kim and not-Kanye.

A porn star playing a porn star -- doesn't get more meta than that.

My Baby Shower Invite

Is Better Than Yours

EXCLUSIVE
0521-kim-kardashian-invite-tmz
Just how over the top were Kim Kardashian's music-box baby shower invitations? Really, really, really over the top -- and TMZ has the first photo proof.

The invite to Kim K's June 2nd bash -- sent to a guest close to Kanye West -- arrived as a fully functional music box, complete with a spinning ballerina ... dancing to a lullaby version of Kanye's "Hey Mama."

Not only is the invite playing the baby daddy's tune, but the ballerina bears a striking resemblance to Kim herself -- just in case anyone forgets who this party is REALLY celebrating.

According to the invites, Kris Jenner, Shelli Azoff (wife of uber-manager Irving Azoff), Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are hosting the party. Recommended attire ... garden chic. We think that's rich people speak for casual.

Now here's the "Hey Mama" lullaby -- listen and pretend like you were invited.

Aretha to Kim K

Babies Belong at Home

NOT ON TOUR!!!

EXCLUSIVE
051713_aretha_franklin_launchKim Kardashian should think twice about taking her newborn baby on tour with Kanye West ... so says Aretha Franklin

Aretha was out in NYC today when we told her about Kim's plans to join Kanye on his upcoming tour in October ... newborn baby and all ... and Aretha had some stern words of warning for the pregnant reality star.

Worth noting ... Aretha looked great and sounded fantastic (she even sung a few notes for us), which is notable since she just canceled two shows scheduled for next week due to unspecified "health issues."

Take care, TCB.

I'm Taking the Baby ...

ON TOUR WITH KANYE

Kim Kardashian
is NOT upset that Kanye West has decided to go on tour just a few months after the birth of their child ... because TMZ has learned, she plans to go with him, baby and all.

There are reports Kim felt like Kanye was abandoning her by scheduling a tour for his new album in October -- just three months after she's expected to give birth -- but sources close to the touring company tell us, that's not true ... because Kim and the baby are coming along for the ride.

And she's not messing around either -- we're told the touring company has already been given orders to arrange for cribs and soundproof hotel rooms at every stop.

Kanye hasn't announced whether his tour will go international -- but we all know the guy has an affinity for Paris, so we're guessing he'll most likely be heading overseas.

So with the baby coming as well as a new album ... we gotta ask ...

Kanye West's Lambo

Scratched Up

Like Its Owner

5/17/2013 3:00 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez
0516_kanye_lamborgini_GSIKanye West's pricey sports car is like his forehead ... banged up.

The full extent of the damage to Kanye's $750,000 Lamborghini Aventador was spotted for the first time in Beverly Hills today ... and it's all scratched up on the side.

On Tuesday, Kanye's Lambo was being delivered to Kim Kardashian's home after being serviced when the gate closed in on both ends of the sick ride.

Kanye is currently in New York getting ready for his gig on "SNL," so the delivery guy responsible should expect a personal performance of one of his epic live rants next week.
