Kylie Jenner and Tyga still deny they're a couple -- smart since she's 17 and he's 24 -- but that's not stopping them from flying together all over Europe, where it just so happens the age of consent would be more favorable for them to ... y'know.
Tyga and Kylie were spotted together at England's Gatwick Airport on Friday ... then traveled on to Bordeaux, France and Geneva, Switzerland ... before landing in Athens, Greece where Tyga had a gig Sunday night.
Seems odd that Kylie would go on tour with Tyga -- if they're just friends -- but then we noticed the age of consent for sex in those countries:
England -- 16
France -- 15
Switzerland -- 16
Greece -- 15
The consent age is 18 under Federal and California law. Of course, there's still no evidence they're banging -- and Tyga's been adamant they're NOT -- but ya gotta wonder if they read up on international laws before departing ... just in case.
Lied About Pope Duet Plans
10/20/2014 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
American Music Awards sources are saying they never wanted Sinead O'Connor to stand alongside Pope Francis on their show ... they say she was the one pushing for the appearance.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ ... it was actually HER team who contacted the AMAs ... but having Sinead end her Pope beef during the show was NEVER discussed.
We're told show producers were interested in Sinead being on the show ... but they say her claims about the Pope -- which she made on her blog -- are ridiculous and a tweet was never sent.
Sources say producers feel Sinead's been spewing BS for decades, so this rant is nothing new. More importantly ... we're told she will absolutely not be appearing on the award show now.
Sinead famously ripped apart a photo of Pope John Paul II during her 1992 performance on "Saturday Night Live" ... which got her banned from the show for life.
Suicide Note ... Blame the Victim
10/20/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
War Machine penned a suicide note in his jail cell ... in which he paints himself as the victim as he recounts the night he brutally beat his porn star girlfriend Christy Mack within an inch of her life.
We broke the story ... War Machine tried to kill himself inside a Las Vegas jail cell last week -- a plan that was foiled by a corrections officer.
TMZ obtained a letter War Machine sent to a friend the day before his suicide attempt. It's shockingly delusional. He says after they broke up and got back together, "Something seemed different about you."
He then tries to justify the beating, by saying he was stunned when he discovered her infidelity, and saying "Finding what I found that night was devastating to me, more than you will ever know," adding, "not just the unfaithfulness, but the way u cared for him and protected him."
War Machine says in the note this time he'd let Christy's new boyfriend Corey Thomas beat him up -- because he believes she would have stopped the guy and kicked her new dude out.
He then sinks into a world of self pity ... "I still don't understand how I got into this mess. I don't know why this had to happen. My life was going so well." He then has the balls to say, "I forgive you, please forgive me."
War Machine is still facing 32 charges -- including attempted murder -- while he waits behind bars.
Doesn't Dirty Propofol
10/18/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Conrad Murray is weighing in on Joan Rivers' death ... because, after all, he IS an expert on Propofol.
Murray was nursing a frothy drink in Barbados when a photog screwed up the question ... she suggested to Murray Propofol was somehow the cause of Joan's death ... which is wasn't.
Nevertheless ... Murray sang the virtues of the drug, and then launched into his tried-and-untrue argument that he was framed by L.A. County prosecutors in Michael Jackson's death.
He's wearing a nice shirt, right?
Lil Twist is Back

Justin Bieber knows trouble and apparently likes it ... because he's back with Lil Twist.
Biebs and Twist made a turbulent exit from Playhouse in Hollywood Thursday night. There's good reason why Bieber was behind the wheel ... Twist has already racked up a DUI arrest while driving one of Justin's cars.
Justin's people almost strong-armed the singer into cutting ties with Twist after a series of incidents ... including Twist speeding on an L.A. Freeway which ended with someone getting killed -- when a photog was struck by a passing motorist.
Now Twist is bragging on his Instagram, "Just like... that we're bak."

10/16/2014 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
There's nothing Kevin Hart won't do for his fans ... including saving one of them from getting fired -- he just recorded a plea to the rental car company that suspended a bus driver who took a selfie with him on the job.
We broke the story ... Genesha Bradley-Douglas was suspended without pay after she stopped her National Car Rental shuttle bus at LAX and jumped off to snap a quick shot with Kevin.
Kevin is now begging National to put Genesha back on the payroll, telling the company ... "C'mon have some compassion!"
If this pitch can't save Genesha ...
Shopper Busted for Humping Toy Horse
Cops Release Victim's Pic
10/16/2014 9:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
These are the cold, dead eyes belonging to the victim of a heinous faux sex crime ... perpetrated right inside a Walmart.
19-year-old Sean Johnson allegedly roamed the aisles Tuesday and picked his prey ... a brown stuffed horse. Cops say Johnson then pulled out his namesake and pressed it against the horse's chest.
THAT was just foreplay. Johnson then ferociously humped the horse -- making his deposit and then wrapped the animal in a comforter he took from a nearby aisle.
According to the Smoking Gun ... an employee saw the whole thing go down and alerted cops who subdued the perp across the street from the Florida super chain.
He was charged with indecent exposure and criminal mischief.
This would never happen at Target ... too obvious, right?
Matt Barnes' Wife
Allegedly Forged NBA Star's Signature
... For Secret $150k Loan
10/16/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Seems the "trust issues" in Matt Barnes' marriage may be coming to light ... because his estranged wife Gloria Govan has been accused of forging the NBA star's signature to take out a $150k loan ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports.
The woman behind the lawsuit is Nina Rawls -- the widow of R&B legend Lou Rawls -- who claims Gloria approached her back in March and asked to borrow $150k for a TV project produced by Gloria and Matt's production company.
Rawls says she agreed -- but the loan had to be repaid in full just 2 MONTHS later. According to the suit, May came and went ... and Gloria (who stars on "Basketball Wives: LA") never ponied up the dough.
Eventually, Nina says Gloria ADMITTED that she forged Matt's signature on the loan docs in the first place. It's unclear if Matt ever knew about the loan in the first place ... but our sources tell us Barnes was completely in the dark about the alleged deal.
Now, Nina wants the full $150k back -- plus damages.
We called Matt and Gloria's reps for comment -- so far no word back.
NBC Dr. Nancy Snyderman
Ebola Quarantine Violation
Got Maid FIRED
10/15/2014 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
NBC Medical Correspondent Nancy Snyderman caused a maid to get fired ... and it's all because Nancy violated her Ebola quarantine by taking a drive to a local restaurant.
Turns out the chef at The Peasant Grill near Princeton, NJ -- where Nancy went last week to grab some grub -- is the brother of Vilma (she asked us not to use her last name), who works as a maid in town.
After TMZ and other media reported Nancy's breach ... people in the town panicked. They were concerned because Nancy and her crew were all in contact with a cameraman who contracted Ebola, and one of the guys in the quarantined crew went inside the restaurant to pick up food.
We've learned 2 homeowners who had been using Vilma for years freaked out because they feared her brother might have exposed her to the virus. So the 2 homeowners told Vilma she could no longer work with them ... until further notice.
Local health officials say they investigated and there is no risk anyone who was in the restaurant would contract Ebola. But clearly not everyone believes them.
Snyderman has never accepted personal responsibility, blaming the crew for the quarantine violation, even though she was right there in her Mercedes at the restaurant...

Co. Craps On Dung Burning
10/15/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Slipknot's plan to stink up a music festival ... BY SETTING CAMEL DUNG ON FIRE ... just went down the toilet -- fire officials have officially pulled the plug.
The metal band had plans to fill drums with camel poop and oil ... then set them ablaze during its 3-day Knotfest Music Festival later this month in San Bernardino. The band's burning desire was for the stench to "infest your brain, body and clothes for days."
Naturally, county fire officials ain't having it -- but their beef isn't with the camel feces ... it's the burning oil ... which is illegal in Cali. Also, they say the odor of flaming feces could be considered a public nuisance. Ya think?
Bottom line -- the show will go on ... sans burning poo. A rep for Knotfest says they haven't given up yet ... they're looking for a safer way to get that camel s**t scent.

Sorry, Internet ... that's not Beyonce topless at the beach -- no matter how much you want it to be.
Photos started circulating Tuesday morning ... showing a woman who looks a lot like Bey flaunting yellow bikini bottoms, and nothing else. Just fully exposed whoppers.
However ... we've got an eye for this stuff, and dug into the archives to discover the woman in the pics is actually ex-Big Brother U.K. contestant Rachael White -- and the photos were shot back in 2011.
