EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS - Kanye West Explains Recent Pap Rage, Tells X17 Photographer, "I Respect You"

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 1:20pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Kanye West has a soft spot for our photographer -- and we love that about him!

On Tuesday, our camera man caught up with Yeezy, who was wearing a hoodie and black jeans, heading a Los Angeles studio on Tuesday -- and he was in quite a considerate mood! Despite having a spat with slew of shutterbugs over the weekends -- Kanye seems like he's in a great mood in our video. Our favorite part is when the music man checks in with our guy to make sure he gets the shot!

In the video, the rapper calmly and kindly says to our camera man on the scene, "I just want to make sure that you got the shot, because you drove a long way." Yeezy then tries to explain why he lashed out at the paps two days prior, saying, "You know the other day, it's just there's so many guys, I didn't know who you were and everything... You guys are putting in that work in every day, man, I just respect you."

The cordial video comes two days after he lashed out at a group of paparazzi on Sunday when he and Kimbo met up with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen at Nobu in Malibu. The couples brought their children along for the double brunch date, which lasted over two hours. What should have been a nice, mellow afternoon by the beach turned a bit ugly when a few photographers crowded Kimye on the way out of the restaurant, prompting the rapper to lash out in a typical angry Kanye fashion.

Glad 'Ye is in a better mood!

Report: Khloe Dating Odell Beckham Jr.

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 12:35pm PDT       By X17 Staff

We were really holding out hope that Lam Lam would get his act together, but it looks like he missed his chance!

Khloe Kardashian has been quietly dating NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. for months, Media Take Out reports. The website's source insists that the new romance isn't a "jump off situation either," and they're ready to go public with their relationship. This news comes on the heels of the reality star re-filing for divorce from Lamar Odom last week, so the timing would make sense.

Someone snapped video of the pair flirting at the club in Vegas during Scott Disick's birthday party, and then sources spotted the duo pouring on the PDA at Drake's Memorial Day party at his house in L.A. on Monday. The E! starlet and the athlete were allegedly making out in plain view for all the other guests to see!

She deserves to be happy! Let's just hope he's not as big of a loser as French Montana or James Harden!

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 12:10pm PDT       By X17 Staff

Embracing these insane body changes with a smile lol #pregnant #babybump 🍼

A video posted by Courtney A Stodden (@courtneyastodden) on

The only thing more disturbing than Courtney Stodden's May/December relationship with Doug Hutchinson is Courtney Stodden -- pregnant.

Earlier this month, the now-21-year-old revealed that she's four-weeks pregnant with her 56-year-old hubby's baby, and in no time flat the attention-loving star took to Instagram to flaunt her growing curves with a sultry bikini video.

In the video, Courtney wears a skimpy bikini as she shakes her ass for the camera, which soon pans around to show off her ample bosom and her blossoming baby bump, which she has decorated with a painted smiley face. Also -- we REALLY hope that's a glass of water!

Seriously, this video makes our skin crawl! That poor kid!

P.S. I think it's just a matter of months before Court comes out with her pregnant lady porn. EWWW!


Amber Heard Says She Didn't Report Johnny Depp's Alleged Abuse To Police To Protect His Career

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 10:40am PDT       By X17 Staff

Amber Heard's lawyer has explained why the actress did not report her alleged abuse to the police.

Heard's lawyers Samantha F. Spector and her co-counsel Joseph P. Koenig released a new statement in which she explained that Amber is, "simply a victim of domestic violence." The lawyers explained that the reason that the "Rum Diary" actress did not give a statement to police about the alleged abuse after calling them on May 21 was in order to "protect her privacy and Johnny's career."

Her lawyers went on to say that, "As the result of Amber's decision to decline giving an initial statement to the LAPD, her silence has been used against her by Johnny's team."

The statement continues, "Amber did not provide a statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny's career. Johnny's team has forced Amber to give a statement to the LAPD to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media."

In addition, the lawyers say, "Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny. In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator's playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain."

This whole thing sounds very suspicious to us ...

T-Swizz is one lucky lady!

Calvin Harris is a certified hottie with a body, and he took the opportunity to show us that with this black-and-white shirtless selfie that he posted to Instagram on Memorial Day. Fans were quick to lose their marbles over the snapshot, and it even incited some jealous rages directed at girlfriend Taylor Swift.

The Scottish DJ is still recovering from the car crash he got into last week, so he's been forced to cancel some of lucrative Las Vegas gigs. "Adam is still recovering from the injuries sustained in the car accident last Friday. Unfortunately, as a result he will not be able to perform in Las Vegas at Hakkasan tonight, 5/26 and Omnia tomorrow, 5/27," a statement on his Facebook page read.

The "Bad Blood" songstress probably doesn't mind waking up to this in the morning!


Kylie Jenner And Her Friends Flash Their Flesh On Memorial Day

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 9:20am PDT       By X17 Staff

Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin kicked off the summer with some sexy bikini selfies -- because when your whole life is lived for social media, that's what you do!

Kylie, Hailey, Kendall and some pals celebrated the beginning of the summer poolside and of course they caught every skin-baring moment on camera and posted the fruits of their lack of labor on social media.

In the photos, Hailey dons a Solid & Striped Morgan bikini top, which runs for $88, and a Solid & Striped Morgan bikini bottom, which also runs for $88. Kylie got cheeky in a a strappy black bikini that highlights her derriere.

Of course -- the Memorial Day festivities seemed all about the baring of butts. The gaggle of gals perched themselves next too the pool and posed as they grabbed each other's rumps.

Those are some bootylicious babes!

Of course, Kylie and Hailey also took the opportunity to showcase their hip tattoos -- because why not?

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians has a "sanete" on her right hip, which is "sanity" spelled out in the letters of the International Phonetic Alphabet. Meanwhile Hailey has "gente" inked on her, which means "people" in Portuguese and is an ode to her Brazilian heritage.

We think those are pretty dumb tattoos -- but let's look at who has them, not exactly the brightest bulbs!

The pretty young things look like they had a fun day off -- but let's get real, this is basically what these girls do all day everyday!


Jessica Simpson Shows Off Her Jugs In Memorial Day Selfie

Sexy mama!

Jessica Simpson was feelin' patriotic on Memorial Day, and decided to flaunt her ample curves with an Instagram selfie in a red and white bikini. We guess this is one way of supporting the troops!

Remember when John Mayer gave that awful interview and said he would "sell all his sh*t just to f**k her?" We do too... and he's probably looking at this pic and wondering why he ever gave her the boot!

The buxom blonde bombshell has a new swimwear line, and what better way to promote your new project than by showing off the girls?!


Katy Perry's Twitter Account Hacked, Friendly Message Sent To Rival Taylor Swift

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 8:00am PDT       By X17 Staff

There's no way the real KP would ever be sweet to T-Swizz!

Katy Perry's Twitter account was hacked yesterday, and the perpetrator sent a message to her rival Taylor Swift! "Miss u baby @taylorswift13," they tweeted at the "Bad Blood" songstress. The hacker also leaked an unreleased song titled "Witness 3.1," and insinuated it was from the "Roar" singer's archive.

Almost as soon as they mischief began, Soundcloud and Twitter blocked the activity, but not before fans took a trusty screenshot!

Katy and Tay have hated each other for years, and it began in 2014 when the blonde beauty hinted at a fellow pop star mean girl in an interview with Rolling Stone. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'," she told the mag.

We're surprised the hacker didn't tweet at John Mayer while they were at it!
