Kanye West I Paid the Extras at My Show ... That Kid's Full of It

2/12/2016 12:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021216-kanye-west-tmz-02Kanye West's hired hands at his Yeezy Season 3 debut were all fed, paid and dressed for the gig -- and his camp is firing back at the extra who claims otherwise.

The accuser, who goes by "kurents" on IG, went on a rant ... claiming he didn't get a dime for his work as an extra, and that Yeezy dressed everybody in hand-me-downs.

However, a rep for Kanye tells us extras got a daily rate and received a meal ticket for lunch. While the hours were long for the gig, we're told the majority of the crew was thrilled to be in the show. 

A source close to the production tells TMZ all models were dressed in Yeezy Season 3 gear, but because of the large number of participants ... some extras were in vintage clothing that had been dyed for the production. We're told they were paid $10/hr.

Our source says everyone involved in the show had to sign a very strict NDA, so it's a little fishy the "kurents" guy is so chatty.

Abby Lee Miller I Made These 'Dance' Girls Cool ... Unlike Their Real Mothers

2/12/2016 11:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Thank God for Abby Lee Miller ... said Abby Lee Miller when discussing the fame and success of some of her "Dance Moms" students.

No doubt Abby's got some bragging rights ... we were at her Santa Monica studio when some of her girls, including Maddie Ziegler, were going through a hip-hop routine.

Maddie just won the Seriously Popular trophy at the People's Choice Awards, so you'll excuse Abby for crowing about how she raised her girls. As she put it, "Lord knows, if it would've been up to their mothers."

Okay, maybe you won't excuse her.

Bill Murray Hurled Fans' Phones Off Rooftop

2/12/2016 9:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-bill-murray-tmz-03update_graphic_red_bar10:00 AM PT -- Police spoke to Murray on Friday and he's offered to pay for the damage to the phones. The phone owners were cool with that, and don't want to press any charges ... so, case closed.update_grey_gray_barBill Murray is accused of going all Naomi Campbell on some fans who tried to take his photo in the tranquil seaside town of Carmel, CA ... and now cops are investigating.

Bill was hanging out at the Vesuvio rooftop lounge, a popular watering hole for celebs playing in the annual Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tourney. It's going on now, and Bill is playing.

The owner of the restaurant, Scott Pepe, tells us Bill wasn't drinking ... he just got really pissed when a few patrons got starstruck and took his pic.

The fans were pretty obvious, with flashes going off only 10 feet away from Bill, according to Scott. He says Bill got so angry he got up and chucked their phones off the 2nd story rooftop.

0212-bill-murray-vesuvio-tmz-01 Cops were called, but Bill left before they got there.

Scott says the incident's making him change his policy -- no phones and no pictures, since celebs come in a lot. We spoke to the Carmel PD, and they're looking into the incident.

No truth, we believe, to rumors Bill said the following ...

Barry Manilow My Doctor Won't Let Me Rap

2/12/2016 9:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

021116-barry-manilow-gettyBarry Manilow has been muzzled by his doctors who have zipped up his grill and banned him from spittin' rhymes.

Barry's on the mend after undergoing emergency oral surgery. He apparently had surgery on Monday but there were complications and he was rushed back Thursday night from Memphis to L.A. for the procedure.

The "Mandy" singer's publicist said, "For the next 48 hours, Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing or rap."

There goes 4-bar Friday.

Kanye West, Taylor Swift Each Accuses the Other You're a Liar

2/12/2016 6:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211-kanye-taylor-tmz-01Kanye West and Taylor Swift are now at war over one of his new songs, in which he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."

Taylor came out swinging Thursday night, disputing our story that sources told us Kanye called her about the song and she thought the lyrics were funny and had no problem with him releasing the track.  

Tayor's rep says, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"

But Kanye has just fired back, tweeting, "I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."

Kanye goes on, "Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n****." And, Kanye says, it was Taylor who actually inspired him with the lyric. He says, "She was having dinner with one of our friends who's name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can't be mad at Kanye because he made me famous!"

In a show of support, Taylor's younger brother, Austin, threw his Yeezys in the trash.

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

Rihanna Dressing For A Galaxy Far, Far Away

2/12/2016 8:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-rihanna-ag-02Rihanna dropped a big clue she's a hardcore 'Star Wars' fan just like everybody else Thursday during her night out on the NYC town.

RiRi dined at one of her favorite places ...  Da Silvano in the Village.

The skirt's a knockoff  of the old movie poster for 'The Phantom Menace' from the prequel trilogy ... so she clearly wasn't dressing to impress ... the original three or 'Force Awakens' is the proper attire for true aficionados.  

  

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.

Lamar & Khloe We're Back to Soaking Up the Spotlight

2/12/2016 5:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom is getting a massive taste of his old life with Khloe Kardashian as the paparazzi swarm around the "exes" in New York City.

This video is remarkable 'cause if you didn't know better, you'd think it was shot 5 or 6 years ago -- Khloe and Lamar arm-in-arm, doing some Greek at Milos in Midtown after Kanye West's show at MSG ... and the photogs firing off shots of their every step.

What's also obvious is how well Lamar's moving around. He slowed a little as he approached their car on the way out, but remember -- this guy was nearly dead 4 months ago. It's an AMAZING recovery!

Khloe's insisted there's nothing romantic between them anymore -- despite her calling off the divorce -- but 2010 called ... it wants this Khloe and Lamar video back.

EXCLUSIVE

Do ya feel generous, punk?? Well, do ya? 

4 ridiculously rich celebrities go to dinner after Day 1 of the Pebble Beach Pro Am -- Clint Eastwood, Ray Romano, Kenny G and Andy Garcia. Question is ... who picked up the check??

We got the guys leaving Il Tegamino after a long day of golf -- and they couldn't have been nicer ... especially Kenny G and Ray Romano. 

Not only are those two crushing it in the tourney -- but Kenny also won a chip-off earlier in the day, earning $100,000 for charity. 

So, we had to ask ... when 4 huge stars go to dinner, who pays? 

It's a pretty great clip.
