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. 

OOOPS. 

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

HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT!!!! 

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

3/30/2016 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin came to the rescue of a little kid who got crushed by the crowd that gathered to get a peek at the women shopping.

Unclear if the kid was a fan, or just an innocent bystander -- but he totally got flattened as Kendall and Hailey made their way through the crowd outside Citipups Chelsea. The video's insane and the kid had to be terrified.

Props to Kendall for her reaction. If he wasn't a fan before ... he probably is now.

Kanye West I'm Gonna Wipe My Record Clean

3/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

031816-kanye-west-tmzKanye West is asking a judge to erase his paparazzi beatdown conviction from his record ... TMZ has learned.

Kanye copped a plea in 2014 for attacking a photog the year before at LAX. He pled no contest to misdemeanor battery and was placed on 24 months probation. He was also ordered to perform 250 hours of community service.

Over the last 2 years, Kanye more than held up his end of the bargain. He put in way more than the required number of community service hours at L.A. Trade Tech's fashion school. He also kept his nose clean for the 24 months.

According to the deal, Kanye is now eligible to have his record expunged, and we've learned he's already filed legal papers asking a judge to do just that.

TMZ has chronicled the radical changes in Kanye's behavior over the last few years. Now when he's at LAX, he's not only nice ... sometimes he acts as a peacemaker.

A judge has yet to rule, but it's almost guaranteed his criminal record will be erased.

Justin Bieber Shells Out Peanuts To End Paparazzi Lawsuit

3/16/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0216-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber dug into his pockets -- but not very far -- to settle with a paparazzo who sued him.

Jose Osmin Hernandez had sued Biebs for assaulting him 3 years ago, claiming the singer kicked him MMA style and punched him at The Commons in Calabasas during a date with Selena Gomez.

Sources tell us the case has settled but the amount is in the "legal nuisance" territory, meaning Bieber would have paid more in attorneys' fees so it made sense just to throw some money at the guy.

The case has been dismissed.

L.A. Rams Players Got TMZ Media Training ... With Kanye Video

3/6/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. Rams had a strong message for their players -- now that you're in L.A., don't act like the old Kanye West!! 

The players were called to a media training session earlier this week -- where they were shown TMZ and TMZ Sports videos to show them the right way and the wrong way to handle the media. 

Rams punter Johnny Hekker says they were shown a Kanye video as part of the presentation (it's gotta be the "Don't Talk Ever" clip, right?)

On the flip side, Hekker says they watched several positive interactions with various athletes and celebs ... including a recent clip with their very own running back Todd Gurley

Hekker says the team harassed Todd for his answer to a question about In-N-Out burgers ... but it was all in good fun. 

In the meantime, here's a remix to that Kanye video ... 

Kanye West I'm an Arrogant Hypocrite??" In Your Face Photog!!!

3/5/2016 6:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West took the 5th on O.J. Friday when he arrived at LAX, but when a photog called him an "arrogant hypocrite," Kanye unloaded.

Listen closely ... you can hear one of the paps hurl the barb ... it gets Yeezus' attention for sure ... he thinks a minute and comes back strong. 

Kanye West I'm a Paparazzi Peacemaker Now!!!

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.

Rapper Joey Bada$$ Brawls at Kanye's Show ... Don't Call Me A$AP Rocky, Bruh!

2/12/2016 7:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you're not down with Joey Bada$$ you might get smacked the hell up ... like the photog outside Madison Square Garden who thought the rapper was A$AP Rocky.

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.
