Taylor Swift’s publicist, Tree Paine, is now responding to Kim Kardashian over the leaked call between Taylor and Kim’s husband, Kanye West, and Tree is basically calling her out, sharing her original statement, which contradicts everything Kim is now arguing. Tree wrote, “I’m Taylor’s publicist and this is my UNEDITED original statement. Btw, when you take parts out, that’s editing. P.S. who did you guys [tick off] off to leak that video?” In Tree’s original statement, she notes that Kanye didn’t call Taylor for her approval of the song, only to ask if she’d share it on Twitter, which is pretty clear in the leaked audio. She also shares that Taylor said no, and warned him about the “strong misogynist message” of the song, and that she was never told about the use of the B word in the song.

Jeremy Renner is back in court to ask the judge to reduce his child support to his ex. Though Jeremy did make quite a bit of cash playing Hawkeye in "The Avengers" films, those are done for him, and all the work he had lined up for this year is on hold now, according to TMZ. Jeremy pays his ex $30,000 per month, but he says she using a good chunk of it to support her lifestyle and to fund her child custody war against him in court. Jeremy thinks his daughter’s "reasonable needs" are more around $11,000 a month.

“From Not to Hot” star Mama June Shannon has not been in touch with her daughters in a very long time. Ever since she was arrested last March, she has been avoiding her kids. People has an exclusive clip of the season premiere of WE TV’s “Mama June: Family Crisis,” and her daughter Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon, 20, says no one can get a hold of her, explaining, “She doesn’t even answer our phone calls. It goes to voicemail.” June’s 14-year-old daughter, “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson adds, “Or they’ll say all their phones are dead and they were sleeping.” After Mama June was arrested last year, Pumpkin became Honey Boo Boo’s legal guardian.

Michael Rapaport, from “Boston Public” and “Friends,” among other shows, was asked to do a nice PSA for social distancing and self-isolation, and he was happy to do it, but to do it his own way. In a video on TMZ, Michael gets downright nasty with his message to parents, yelling, "GET YOUR F****ING KIDS INSIDE!" It’s a 2 ½ minute rant, and he sure doesn’t hold back. I’d be surprised if the parents who saw the video haven’t already jumped in their cars to take their kids off the beaches already, he’s that scary.
