2/19/2016 4:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West has completed his metamorphosis ... he's gone from fighting paparazzi at the airport to breaking up paparazzi fights.
Check out our video ... Kanye not only steps in when 2 photogs go for each other's face, he ends up hugging one of them into a state of calm.
Our photog went in for the warm and fuzzy ... will Kanye and Kim have #3?
As for Kanye's phantom debt problems, he makes it clear he's financially fine, but is still looking for other people's money. And by other people we mean Mark Zuckerberg.

Joey, part of the Pro Era crew, was feeling like a million bucks as he cruised out of Kanye West's show -- but watch what happened when one of the paps (not our guy) misidentified him.
All hell breaks loose until 2 cops on the scene step in between the guys.
NYPD says the photog filed a harassment complaint, but no one's been arrested or even cited.
Just to make sure this never happens to you ... take a good look.
Kanye West I'm Gonna Help Dads Feed Their Kids
2/10/2016 8:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West is raging and ranting -- when he's on Twitter -- but in the real world the guy's acting like he's on a campaign to win a Nobel Peace Prize.
Kind Kanye's latest beneficiaries were a group of patient fans waiting for him outside his NYC pad ... and even the paparazzi who hung out for him.
Check out the vid -- at first he looks like he's gonna blow off everyone, not saying a word. And then he drops a very huge ... very valuable surprise for the fans. He wasn't done there. When he and Kim Kardashian return from dinner, you gotta see his chat with the photogs.
This is Yeezy ... the "It's a Wonderful Life" edition -- and almost enough to make people forget about that Bill Cosby thing.

Leo DiCaprio's Ex-Gf Baring it All In Mexico
1/8/2016 8:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Leonardo DiCaprio's former chick and 23-year-old German model Toni Garrn needed just a little more sunscreen for a couple extra spots.
Garrn and a friend went topless to enjoy the sunshine in Mexico this week -- bet the sunshine enjoyed it too. Most guys would kick themselves for leaving TG behind.
In Leo's case though ... he's on to next the one. One being another gorgeous model under 25.
Caitlyn Jenner That's Not My Boyfriend ... That's My Kid!!
12/24/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Caitlyn Jenner and son Burt got mistaken for boyfriend and girlfriend ... hilarious for sure, but it soon turned ugly.
Caitlyn and 37-year-old Burt Jenner went to lunch Monday in West L.A. when photogs jumped to the conclusion they were hooking up and peppered them with questions.
Check out the video. You see Caitlyn leave and Burt blocked one of the photogs so he couldn't follow her. When the photog gets out of his car -- presumably to confront Burt -- Caitlyn's son goes on the attack.
We did not include the last part of the video, where the photog starts making vile comments, hurling homophobic slurs and denigrating Caitlyn. It's really awful.
Chris Martin Sued By Photog ... You Have a Thing Against the Media
12/22/2015 4:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Martin has just been sued by a photog who claims the singer has got it out for the media.
Richard Terry was perched at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in L.A. back in January when he saw Chris and Gwyneth get into a Jeep. He claims Martin intentionally turned his wheel sharply to the right, causing the Jeep to jump the sidewalk and hit Terry.
As TMZ reported ... another photog across the street took pics of the incident, and some felt it was a set up for the photog to bait Martin and then chronicle what followed.
Terry says in his lawsuit, Martin has "a significant history of repeated and ongoing violent acts against entertainment news people."
Terry is particularly pissed off that Martin left the scene instead of tending to him.
Justin Timberlake Drunk and In Charge You Lazy Paparazzi Bums!!!
11/17/2015 3:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Timberlake was on his game -- his country game, his drinking game, and his trash talking game -- as he walked out of a Chris Stapleton concert in L.A. ... and the video is HILARIOUS!
Justin went to see his "Tennessee Whiskey" pal play the El Rey Theater Monday night, and it sounds like JT threw down a few during the show.
It's hysterical ... as photogs scramble to get shots of Justin leaving, he scolds them for being asleep at the wheel.
We love Country Justin.

Kanye West has a new tactic to thwart swarms of photogs ... uncontrolled effusiveness.

Blake Shelton Gwen Stefani's Really Got a Hold On Me!!!
11/5/2015 11:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The freshly-formed couple arrived hand-in-hand at a CMA after-party ... thrown by Warner Bros. Music in Music Square.
Gwen's clutching a glass of white wine while Blake's got some sort of iced drink in his Styrofoam cup.
As we reported, Gwen decided at the last minute to accompany Blake to Nashville. We're told the relationship is new ... just days old.
Judging from the stars we talked to after the CMAs, country approves.
Our sources say they'll spend a few days in Nashville before returning to L.A.
Halle & Olivier Sued Unprovoked Attack Is ... Gonna Cost You Millions
10/19/2015 4:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We got video of the incident when it went down back in January -- after Halle and Olivier landed at LAX they were swarmed by paparazzi, and Olivier used their baby's car seat to shove the employee -- named Ronaldo Owens -- flat on his ass.
In his lawsuit, filed Monday in L.A., Owens says he wasn't blocking the couple's path ... and had every right to be where he was as an LAX employee. One angle of the video did show Owens taking a photo with what appears to be his phone.
However, in his suit Owens says Martinez brutally charged at him without provocation -- and he accuses Halle of masterminding the whole thing, saying she gave her husband "carte blanche ability to attack."
He's suing them for at least $5 million.
Owens filed a police report, but the L.A. city attorney declined to prosecute.
Justin Bieber Nude Pics Not THAT Bad ... 'Cause I'm That Big
10/9/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber's lawyers are barking about three nude pics taken of him on vacation in Bora Bora, but we know Justin isn't all that pissed because the shots show just how ... GIFTED he is.
Multiple sources close to Bieber tell TMZ he was upset paparazzi, armed with telephoto lenses, snapped the photos of him butt (and other parts) naked frolicking with Jayde Pierce. We're told he thought it was a total invasion of his privacy.
We saw it the same way, and decided NOT to post the images. But our sources say Justin's anger faded when the pics went viral ... for one seemingly larger than average reason: Bieber's a really big deal, and we're told he's happy the world knows it now.
As we reported, JB's lawyers threatened media outlets that published the pics. We're told his legal team was just doing its job ... sending the message that Justin's not okay with the violation.
But reality is, there's almost zero chance Justin sues ... 'cause as they say, size matters.
