Kim and Kanye We Never 'Fired' That Bodyguard ... He Was Only a Temp

5/5/2016 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0505-kanye-kim-TMZ-01

Kanye West has no issue with bodyguards talking to Kim Kardashian, and absolutely did NOT fire one for doing so.

Sources close to the Wests tell TMZ ... Steve Stanulis was hired by the guy in charge of their security to help out before the Met Gala. We're told it was very clear Stanulis would only be used for the day leading up to the event. That's it, just a temp deal ... we're told.

There were reports 'Ye axed Stanulis for talking to Kim, but we're told Yeezy never had a confrontation with him, and in fact ... everything "went very smoothly".

Our Kimye sources say Stanulis has worked with them before, but since people in their camp believe he perpetuated the firing story for some publicity ... he won't get that chance again.

Prince 911 Caller May Have Big Criminal Issues

5/5/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

504-prince-andrew-kornfeldThe man who called 911 in Prince's death could face criminal prosecution if he was expecting to get paid for helping the singer ... and it all comes down to the pills in his backpack.

The lawyer for Andrew Kornfeld -- whose dad runs a rehab facility in Marin County, California -- says his client is entitled to immunity from prosecution because he was acting as a Good Samaritan.  

The issue -- Andrew had a synthetic opiate in his backpack, and he's not a doctor. Our sources say investigators are keenly interested in knowing why Andrew brought the pills. They are often used to wean people off drugs like Percocet -- the opiate which fueled Prince's addiction.

Andrew's attorney points to a Minnesota law that protects people who might be committing drug crimes from being prosecuted if they call 911. The idea is to give people an incentive to help others in dire need without fear of prosecution.

Here's the problem. Under the law, the person who calls 911 does NOT get immunity if they receive or expect to receive compensation for picking up the phone and making the call. It's unclear if Andrew and his dad were going to get paid, but the recovery center charges for its services, so it's a good bet they were expecting compensation.

As for the drugs in the backpack ... even if Andrew's dad prescribed the drug for Prince, our DEA sources say it's illegal for anyone to take the drugs across state lines and deliver drugs in states where the doctor is not board certified.

The whole family's down there shooting their show -- and Khloe's BFF, Malika, snapped a pic of her embracing the architecture and culture.

This is NOT the revolution Fidel had in mind. Though he'd be stupid to complain.

Donald Trump No, Gracias Won't Attend Canelo vs. Khan Fight

5/5/2016 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0505-trump-hoya-tmz-01Donald Trump tells TMZ Sports ... he will NOT attend the Canelo Alvarez vs. Amir Khan fight in Vegas on Saturday ... turning down a personal invitation from the fight's promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

De La Hoya had invited Trump to the fight on Wednesday -- and ODLH had told media Trump had confirmed he would attend. 

But Trump tells us ... it ain't happening, he will NOT be at the fight. 

Oscar may have been baiting Trump because the fight is a Mexican vs. a Muslim -- and the crowd may not have been the most friendly to the controversial candidate.

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.

5/5/2016 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul McCartney stopped short of punching a higher floor when he paid homage to Prince during a concert in Minneapolis Wednesday night.

Sir Paul was playing the Target Center when he launched into "Let's Go Crazy."

Paul and his band jammed through the tune, and the crowd went nuts ... but something was missing through most of it -- Paul's vocals.

Check it out ... McCartney ain't looking for no purple bananas, but you know Prince would still dig this tribute. After all, he loved him some Beatles tunes.

Mark Burnett Sorry Donald ... I'm Set with Schwarzenegger

5/5/2016 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Burnett is a smart guy who knows all about a bird in the hand, which is why he's coyly telling our photog Arnold Schwarzenegger is the man for 'Celebrity Apprentice,' even if Donald Trump loses the election.

Mark was leaving Craig's in WeHo Wednesday, and without fully closing the door, he made it clear he's satisfied with Arnold. Word on the street is that Schwarzenegger's a great host, and the show's super entertaining.

He clearly harbors no ill will toward Trump, but was strangely silent about endorsing him.

Fact is ... this one ended up well for both Trump and Burnett.

'Crash' Director Paul Haggis Divorce Has Me Writing More Checks Than Movies

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

504-tear-paul-haggis-tmz-gettyOscar winner Paul Haggis finalized his divorce, but his now ex-wife will continue reaping the benefits of his success.  

The "Crash" director reached his divorce settlement with Deborah ... and according to the docs, he'll pay her $20k a month in spousal support. The exes have a 17-year-old son, and Paul will pay another $5k per month for child support, and foot the bill for the kid's schooling -- high school and college.

Additionally, the settlement calls for Deborah to get a hefty slice of Haggis' income -- 20% of anything he makes over $1.2 million per year. That's on top of the monthly $20k check.

Paul's walking away with one of their 2 NYC SoHo apartments and 3 Florida properties.
