Kanye West Delivers on Promise ... Free Yeezys to Paps!

8/26/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_kanye_west_yezzy_giveaway_composite-3Kanye West is a man of his word ... at least when it comes to free Yeezys. 

We got 'Ye back in November when he promised he'd hand out the shoes for all the paps' hard work. Seemed like big talk at the time, but earlier this week he delivered to a bunch of freelance camera guys. Totally free of charge!

At $200 a pop, it's a pretty generous gift. We're told he also sent out more than 100 pairs to everyone who guessed his album name correctly.

No one can say Mr. West doesn't have sole.



Justin Bieber & Sofia Richie Someone's Falling Hard for Her

8/25/2016 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sofia Richie's easily amused ... at the expense of a couple of paps who were clearly head over heels for her.

We got Sofia out at 1 AM Thursday leaving The Nice Guy ... sans the Biebs. But the night had just begun for her, and an hour later she reappeared -- with Bieber himself -- leaving Doheny Room.

Hope she's not late for work today.


Amber Heard I Did Not Refuse to Sit For My Deposition

8/8/2016 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808-amber-heard-depo-TMZ-04Amber Heard's camp has come out swinging, claiming she did not refuse to have her deposition taken Saturday.

A member of Amber's team tells TMZ ... "Although she was ready, willing and able to go forward with her deposition, it was not taken by Johnny's attorneys. She waited for 10 hours and at no time did Amber ever refuse to start the deposition. There was nothing preventing Johnny's counsel from commencing the deposition."

They do not explain why Johnny Depp's lawyers would not want to grill Amber. As we reported, they were all present and had both a court reporter and videographer at the ready.

The team member also says Johnny's camp agreed to have Johnny's depo taken this Wednesday, but now says they can't make the date.  

And they dispute the claim Amber was an hour and a half late for the depo. Even though it was called for 10 AM, they say they "confirmed" Amber would be arriving at 11. And they say she was there at 11, but didn't enter because they were blindsided by paparazzi.

For the record, Amber knew paparazzi were present long before she arrived.

Kim Zolciak Botox Confessions During Daughter's TMZ Trial

7/27/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Zolciak's daughter, Brielle, could have a career as a TMZ photog ... at least based on this video of her hammering mom with plastic surgery questions.

Kim and the fam were at LAX when we decided to give Brielle a trial run behind the camera -- and she hit up Kim about some pretty obvious changes to her face.

No joke ... Brielle seems like a natural who even hit up stepdad Kroy Biermann about his future in the NFL. But you gotta see his reaction to the grilling ... same for her little bro.

Entertaining brood for sure.


Rihanna Chris Brown Callback 'He's Not Beating Me'

6/10/2016 7:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna made a comment that was at the same time lighthearted and downright eerie, telling her bodyguard to cut a photog a break because "He's not beating me."

Rihanna was leaving her fav ... Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica Thursday night when her bodyguard got a little overprotective.

Was it a conscious reference? You decide.

Chris Brown Accused of Ordering Yacht Party Beatdown

5/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown got pissed at a photog covering a celeb-filled event, and ordered his peeps to regulate ... according to the photog who's now gone to the cops.

It all went down at a launch party on a private yacht last weekend in Fort Lauderdale. Michael Watts, the photog, claims he was taking pics of Chris and Warren Sapp when CB got pissed and began yelling obscenities. 

According to the police report filed by Watts -- and obtained by TMZ -- Chris went ballistic during a shot with singer Tank, shouting ... "This ain't no press release, you're done!" Watts claims CB's enforcer then shoved him so hard, he spun around and cracked his $1,200 Canon lens against a wall.

The photog says he left to avoid further confrontation. Chris flatly denies his guy hit anyone, or in his words ... "It's a lie, lie, lie, lie."


Kim Kardashian I'm Calling the Shots Now!

5/19/2016 6:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian flew back into L.A. and broke big news ... there's a new momager in town -- or at least that's how it seemed in the chaos at the airport.

Kim and Kris Jenner came back from the Cannes Film Festival together, but check out the video. Instead of Kris barking out orders, Kim was the one in charge at LAX ... maneuvering through the pack of fans and photographers, and directing drivers.

Okay, we're sure Kris is still making the biz decisions -- just interesting to see and hear Kim playing generalissimo!

James Harden Accused of Photog Attack ... Cops Investigating

5/19/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0518-james-harden-tmzThe LAPD is looking into allegations that James Harden roughed up a photog in L.A. on Tuesday night -- allegedly breaking the guy's finger in the process ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the accuser told police he spotted Harden in front of a lounge in Hollywood and tried to ask him for his opinion on Donald Trump

The photog -- not a TMZ guy -- claims Harden became aggressive and pushed the camera. The photog claims his finger was caught in the cam ... and was broken in the skirmish. 

The photog filed a police report ... and cops are now investigating to see if there's evidence to back up his claims -- including medical records and possible video. 

Important to note Harden has NOT been charged with a crime.

We reached out to Harden's camp -- so far no word back. 

Alec Baldwin Tempting Fate ... Goes to Paparazzi Hot Spot

5/5/2016 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This did NOT happen by accident ... Alec Baldwin and his wife going straight into L.A.'s hot zone for paparazzi the day after he exploded on a photog in Beverly Hills.

Tensions had to be high as Alec and Hilaria walked out of Craig's and slowly made their way to their car ... swarmed by paps who were all aware of what went down. In fact, we asked him about "the incident," straight up.

Watch how it plays out. Hilaria looks very worried about his reaction in the situation, but it's obvious Alec did this to make a point: that he can play nice with the paparazzi.

It's also pretty clear when he gets in the car ... this probably wasn't HIS idea.

Alec Baldwin BALLISTIC in Bev Hills ... SHUT UP!!!

5/4/2016 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alec Baldwin exploded in anger Tuesday, getting in a photographer's face and berating him for shooting Baldwin's wife.

Baldwin and Hilaria were in Bev Hills when he unleashed on the photog with ear-shattering volume, ordering him to "shut up."

It's unclear what preceded Baldwin's tirade, but he tells the photog in no uncertain terms his wife is out of bounds for the paparazzi ... interesting for sure, because Hilaria is a prolific Instagram user who chronicles her life on the app. She's also a correspondent for "Extra."

It's even more interesting ... Baldwin wrote an essay where he said he was moving from New York to California because he can't stand the paparazzi presence in the Big Apple. He wrote in New York Magazine, "L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal."

The incident occurred in a very public part of town ... Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.

We reached out to Baldwin's rep ... so far no word back.

Breaking News

0426-Zlatan-Ibrahimovic-Martin-Castrogiovanni-Las-VegasEver get busted calling in sick to work -- when you really went to Vegas instead???

That's EXACTLY what happened to a famous rugby player this weekend ... when he decided to rage with international soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic -- after he told his squad he was taking care of family in Argentina. 

The alleged faker is the pudgy tattooed guy in Zlatan's Vegas party crew -- his name is Martin Castrogiovanni and he plays for the famous French rugby squad, Racing 92. 

Martin reportedly told his bosses that he needed to miss the VERY important Champions Cup semi-final game because he needed to attend to a family emergency in Argentina. 

Problem is ... Zlatan is internationally famous and paparazzi pics of Ibrahimovic's pool party got back to France. 


Now, Martin has reportedly been suspended while the team investigates. 


(By the way, Martin's team won the match.)
