Kim Kardashian 'KUWTK' Clip About Kanye & Slavery Wasn't Supposed to See Light of Day

12/6/2018 10:15 AM PST

10:15 AM PT -- We're told the clip of Kim claiming Kanye didn't say slavery was a choice ... will NOT appear in the upcoming 'KUWTK' episode. It was never approved for the episode, because when Kim watched it back, she realized it was inaccurate and not reflective of what happened at TMZ that day.

The preview clip has been pulled by E!.

Kim Kardashian is trying like hell to justify Kanye West's slavery comment -- the problem is she's fully misquoting her husband, and clearly does NOT remember what he actually said.

On the next episode of 'KUWTK,' she has a convo with Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck about Kanye's May 1 appearance on "TMZ Live" ... and the convo is rife with falsehoods. First, Huck says "the way they edited that clip." It was not edited.

Then there's Kim saying this, "If you listen to what he said, he said, 'Slavery was 400 years? If it's gonna be another 400 years, that sounds like a choice to me.' He didn't say, 'Slavery is a choice.'"

Here's the clip, so you can listen to what Kanye actually said. There is clearly NO reference to a future 400 years. The actual quote -- "When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years??? That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?"

Kim can have whatever interpretation she wants of Kanye's words. We get that. But, to say we edited him or misquoted him ... is a lie.

On the 'KUWTK' episode she adds, "Kanye's slavery comment ... he never said that. That was just the headline."

Okay.

Kris Jenner Fake 'KUWTK' House Finally Sells ... 11 Years Later

12/5/2018 3:20 PM PST

The house that posed as Kris Jenner's home in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" finally has a new real-life owner.

The 7,843 sq. foot Studio City mansion recently sold for $5.25 million after being on and off the market for the past 11 years. Our real estate sources tell us it was originally put up for sale back in 2007. It passed through the hands of 19 agents and 9 brokerages before finally selling.

Matt Altman, Josh Altman and Jacob Greene of The Altman Brothers Team and Brandon Assanti of Rodeo Realty most recently had the listing, and got the job done.

If the pad looks familiar, it's probably because you've seen it on E!'s hit show a ton over the years ... which was always presented as the "Jenner House." As we've told you before, they just used it for exterior shots -- they don't use Kris' real home for security reasons.

Either way, it's a good thing it finally sold, even at a $2 million loss. It was put back on the market last year for $7.895 million and has been featured on ton of shows like "Chelsea Lately," "True Blood," "American Horror Story" and in Victoria's Secret ads.

Kim Kardashian Swarmed By Fans ... At KKW Beauty Pop-Up Shop

12/4/2018 4:52 PM PST

It was total fandemonium as Kim Kardashian showed up for the grand opening of her newest pop-up shop ... and you gotta see just how wild this crowd went when Kim waltzed in. 

Thousands of screaming fans showed up Tuesday at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA, where Kim was on hand to open the doors to her KKW Beauty pop-up shop as only she could. 

Check out the clip ... the mall is PACKED, with lines stretching in every direction and spilling onto the second floor. It's quite the scene, complete with screams and tons of people clamoring for autographs and selfies as Kim blessed a lucky few with a pic and signature. 

The pop-up, which is selling makeup and Kim's perfumes, is open for business through the holiday season. 

Ariana Grande Kardashian Cameo in 'Thank U, Next' Goes to ...

11/29/2018 4:36 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

When Ariana Grande recruited a Kardashian to guest star in her highly anticipated "Thank U, Next" music video, she went straight to the top ... of the family tree.

Yes, TMZ has learned Kris Jenner is the mystery Kardashian who scored the cameo role. Take that, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall ... and Rob. 

As we first reported ... Ariana's music vid -- which is an homage to several famous chick flicks -- drops on Friday, and the big question was which Kardashian she'd lined up to make their dancing debut. 

Ariana posted a behind-the-scenes teaser of the making of the music vid -- check it out for some of the other celeb cameos.

We admit it, the odds-on fave had to be one of the sisters who frequently flaunt what they've got. Just remember, they all got it from their mama, which could explain why Kris landed the gig.

"Thank U, Next" has a ton of guests helping AG set up flicks like "13 Going on 30," "Mean Girls," "Legally Blonde" and "Bring it On."

We don't know exactly which movie Kris is getting dropped into ... but our best guess is Amy Poehler's "Cool Mom" from "Mean Girls." 

Michael Blackson to Kim K Don't Blame Ecstasy, Thank Ray J And His Famous Genitals!!!

11/28/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Blackson thinks Kim Kardashian should quit blaming ecstasy and spend way more time sucking up to Ray J for his sizable role in launching her celebrity. 

We got the comedian at LAX Tuesday and asked him about Kim claiming she was high on ecstasy when she and Ray shot their infamous sex tape, and in a word ... he's disappointed.

Michael thinks it's wrong for her to make it seem like the drug is the only reason she banged Ray J on cam, because that doesn't give enough credit to Ray's family jewels.

As we first reported ... sources close to Ray J insist Kim never touched ecstasy during the taping of their sex tape. Michael thinks it's a bit fishy for Kim just now mentioning the drug ... so many years after doing the deed.

Don't worry though, Ray's not getting the short end of the stick -- Michael dishes plenty of props to "d**k and balls!"

Kim Kardashian Ray J Sources Call BS on Ecstasy ... Kim Stands By Her Claim

11/27/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian never touched ecstasy during the filming of her sex tape with Ray J ... so insist sources directly connected to the 'Love & Hip Hop' star.

Kim claimed she took ecstasy twice -- once when she married her first husband back in 2000 and again when she filmed the tape in 2003 -- and she says both experiences were bad for her.

Our Ray J sources say Kim took no hard drugs nor did she drink alcohol during the filming of the sex tape. They do say, however, she smoked pot around the time the tape was made ... and it was from a pipe shaped like a penis.

As for Kim saying her lip quivering was evidence she was on ecstasy, the Ray J sources fire back ... "her lip was quivering because she was getting ******."

Sources close to Kim tell us she stands by the claim she made on the show -- she did in fact take the drug before the tape was shot -- and she has nothing to gain from lying about it at this point in her life. We're told Kim is thankful to have learned early on from the experiences with drugs and attributes those lessons to her decision to not get heavily involved in drugs or alcohol through adulthood.

Our Ray J sources add he's offended that Kim would suggest she did the sex tape because she was in a significantly altered state. They say she was down with it from the beginning and all the way through. 

Kim Kardashian I Was High on Ecstasy ... During Sex Tape, First Wedding

11/26/2018 6:32 AM PST

Kim Kardashian says her jaw was shaking while she filmed her infamous sex tape with Ray J, but it's not what you think ... she was rollin' on X.

Scott Disick pulled it out of her during a convo on 'KUWTK'. The mother of 3 -- who is now super straight-laced -- recalled how she used the drug during her sex scene and during her first wedding ... the one to music producer Damon Thomas in 2000.

So, to hear her tell it, those were the only 2 times she did the drug -- "I did ecstasy once and I got married ... I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen."

Kim said her wild side is still there ... "I still can do crazy things." Well, not like that. 

Kanye West Donates $500,000 To California Fire Relief

11/21/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West is making a gigantic contribution toward relief for the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to battle the California wildfires.

Audience sources tell us Kim Kardashian will appear on 'Ellen' Wednesday and drop a massive surprise c/o her hubby. We're told during the show, Kim and Ellen shift their focus from Kim's new Glam Bible -- from her cosmetics company -- to the devastation of the wildfires.

Our sources say Kim revealed she and Kanye had a serious discussion on how they could ease the burden on those tasked with battling the inferno, and Kanye put an immediate plan into action.

We're told Kim tells Ellen that Kanye went to adidas and his Yeezy brand to drum up relief funds, and they were quick to raise $500,000.

During Wednesday's episode of 'Ellen' ... Kim will present a $200,000 check to the California Community Foundation's Wildfire Relief Fund and a $200,000 check to the California Fire Foundation.

On top of that ... we're told she'll present a $100k check to a firefighter and his wife who are also on 'Ellen' Wednesday. Michael Williams lost his own home, but continued to battle the fires and saved many of his neighbors' homes.

Grab your tissues. 

TMZ broke the story ... the California fires came dangerously close to Kim and Kanye's Hidden Hills mansion, touching their property at one point. Many of the couple's neighbors praised them for hiring a private crew to help extinguish the flames and save many other homes.

Kanye & North West Daddy & Me Date Comes w/ Views ... & Brand New Yeezy Shoes!!

11/19/2018 7:46 AM PST

Kanye West's daughter, North, had the best seat in the house for their daddy-and-me date ... on top of Ye's shoulders. Good thing he brought comfy shoes.

North and her pops hit up the California Science Center in L.A. Sunday. Lots of cool things to see there -- like the Space Shuttle Endeavour -- and it's an outing that requires lots of walking. So, it's interesting Kanye chose this day to bust out his yet-to-be-released YEEZY Boost 700 VX.

Kinda hard to miss Ye make an entrance ... especially when he's wearing these fluorescent green Yeezy samples down low, and his adorable daughter on his shoulders.

He could use a fun day of daddy duty.

As we reported, the Woolsey fire crept right up to Kim and Kanye's property, and only a team of private firefighters saved them from catastrophe. Ye was also at the Bev Hills mansion when gunfire erupted on the set of his music video with Tekashi69.

Kanye's visit to the Science Center came just a couple days after he donated $150k to the family of a Chicago security guard killed by cops moments after he subdued a gunman.

Kim & Kanye's House Photo Makes it Clear ... Private Firefighting Team Saved Neighborhood

11/19/2018 7:07 AM PST

Pictures don't lie ... and now it's clear how Kim Kardashian and Kanye West saved their neighborhood by hiring a private team of firefighters. 

Kimye's home in Hidden Hills stands intact and unscathed from the disastrous Woolsey fire ... but only by feet. The torched field is a testament to the proximity of the fire.

As we first reported ... Kim and Kanye hired a team of private firefighters to battle the blaze after the fire started to creep up on their pad. The house sits at the end of a cul-de-sac ... if their place went up in flames, it would have started a devastating domino effect on the rest of the neighborhood.

The move paid off big time 'cause Kim and Kanye's $60 million house -- along with countless others on the block -- were saved. But, as you can see, catastrophe came THIS close.

Dream's Birthday Party Make a Wish ... And Blow Out the Cockroach!!!

11/16/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's video from Dream's second birthday party proves Auntie Kylie is the hostess with the mostest ... the mostest cockroaches. 

Jenner hosted her niece's 2nd birthday party Wednesday at her Hidden Hills home ... and there was at least one uninvited guest patrolling the sweets table. The 6-legged party guest can be seen scurrying for cover underneath Dream's decked out bday cake.

As for how the critter may have entered the bash -- there are a ton of plants and foliage intertwined with the dessert spread -- so you gotta imagine he hitched a ride inside.

Cockroach guest or not, the party was still clearly a hit for Dream and all her guests with a homemade teepee, fairies and tons of presents.

Kris Jenner Buy My Son's Socks ... He Needs The Ca$h

11/15/2018 11:43 AM PST

Kris Jenner is swooping in to help Rob Kardashian make a quick buck off the holiday shopping season, plugging her son's sock line after he filed docs to have his child support payments to Blac Chyna lessened. 

Kris and Rob unleashed a social media ad blitz Thursday, promoting a line of Christmas-themed socks that were just released by Arthur George, the clothing company Kris just bought a stake in. 

It's funny ... the socks read, "Let's Get Baked," and Kris is calling them the perfect holiday gift. We can think of a few meanings for the phrase, and at least one belongs on the naughty list. 

Rob followed Mom's lead and plugged the socks on his Twitter. 

Kris and Rob teaming up to sell socks comes days after Rob went to court seeking to get a reduction in child support payments to Chyna ... he said he was basically broke after previously agreeing to pay Chyna $20,000 a month to support 2-year-old Dream.

We're told a judge is evaluating Rob's and Chyna's resources and has suspended Rob's entire obligation to pay any child support ... so this new deal with Kris could eventually play a role in the couple's ongoing child support war. 

Dream Kardashian Teepee, Fairies & Bentley You Can't Top My 2nd Bday Bash!!!

11/15/2018 6:58 AM PST

Dream Kardashian clearly doesn't buy into the terrible twos theory ... not after having a magical birthday to celebrate.

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the brood threw an impressive birthday party for Rob and Blac Chyna's kid ... though we're guessing BC was nowhere in sight (more on that in a sec).

There was also a LOT to snack on. Seriously ... check out the spread. The fairy-themed party had it all -- 2 fairies, a teepee, tons of balloons ... and even a shiny Bentley.

As for Chyna ... she wasn't there, and that's not surprising. She and Rob do NOT get along, even though they've managed to co-parent. A year ago, they threw dueling birthday parties for Dream. They're also locked in a bitter fight over child support. For now, the judge has suspended Rob's obligation to pay Chyna $20k a month.  

Rob's asking for a substantial reduction, and it's not out of the question Chyna could end up paying Rob since she's making a lot of money and they're sharing 50/50 joint custody.
