Trouble in Kimye-dise?

Posted: November 15, 2013

COULD THE most important and powerful couple since Adam and Eve be in trouble?

In Touch magazine's anonymous sources say Kim and Kanye (who's at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday without Kim) are no longer living together!

Kim is at her family's Calabasas, Calif., mansion with mom, baby North and assorted other Kardashian/Jenners, but Kanye is at his Hollywood Hills bachelor pad.

"There's too much chaos at Kris' house for Kanye," Kim's friend tells the mag.

"Kanye is working all of the time," another source said. And when he does come by, it's for a short period of time and not overnight.

"Kanye will come over to Kris' for a few hours, but then go back to his place," said the second unnamed source.

* Kim K, meanwhile, was cited for speeding Tuesday after a California Highway Patrol officer spotted the reality star apparently being chased by paparazzi on a Los Angeles freeway.

(Tattle should have used that excuse when we got our bogus ticket on the New Jersey Turnpike. "Sorry, officer, it was the paparazzi.")

Officer Ming Hsu said Kim, who certainly wasn't speeding because she was late for work, was pulled over about 1 p.m. on the 101 near Van Nuys Boulevard. Three other cars apparently driven by paparazzi were also stopped, although two of them left the scene before an officer was able to talk with the photog, according to a Highway Patrol statement.

The third photographer, Juliano A. Goncalves, pulled around Kim's car and started taking pictures. He was cited for speeding and stopping in a nonemergency situation, Hsu said.


* Another much-loved film is getting the screen-to-stage treatment. Producers say a theatrical adaptation of 1998's "Shakespeare in Love" (the Oscar-winner starring Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow) is coming to London's West End next year.

The script will be by Lee Hall, who adapted the movie "Billy Elliot" into a hit stage musical. It will be directed by Declan Donnellan and designed by Nick Ormerod, both of the innovative Cheek By Jowl theater company.

Tattle's waiting for the "Shakespeare in Love" video game.

Genevieve Sabourin, the Canadian woman on trial for allegedly stalking Alec Baldwin, has been ordered to jail for 30 days over a series of courtroom outbursts.

Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Robert Mandelbaum issued the punishment yesterday after finding Sabourin in contempt of court. She replied, "I didn't do anything!"

The judge had warned Sabourin repeatedly about speaking out during her trial. She continued to interrupt afterward, saying she did so because she didn't trust her lawyer.

* Argentines are expressing outrage over the latest scandal to emerge from Justin Bieber's wild tour through Buenos Aires, saying the way he treated the Argentine flag shows he has no respect for his fans or the country.

Videos from Saturday night's concert show how Bieber reacted when fans tossed two Argentine flags onto the stage. Most musicians on world tours usually hold up the flags because the move garners jingoistic patriotic roars.

The Biebs, however, treated the flags like rags, using his shoes and then a microphone stand to sweep them off the stage.

Yo, Biebs, insulting Argentina's flag is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison. You don't even have to desecrate it. Just insult it. Say something like, "Sheesh, you are one ugly flag," and that alone can land you in the slammer.

( Note: Argentina's blue-and-white flag with a smiling sunburst center is a Tattle favorite.)

* No surprise here: The release of the big-screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has been postponed until 2015.

After the casting changes, there wasn't enough time to whip it into shape.

The film had been scheduled to open next August, but Universal Pictures announced yesterday that it will now debut on Valentine's Day in 2015.

So say "I love you" with bondage.

* In other movie news, Don Cheadle will play the late Miles Davis in a biopic the actor has long planned on the innovative jazz pioneer.

BiFrost Pictures told the Associated Press yesterday that it will finance and produce "Kill the Trumpet Player," with Cheadle also making his directorial debut. Production is finally set to begin in June.

Ewan McGregor will co-star as a Rolling Stone reporter, and Zoe Saldana will play Frances Davis, the trumpet player's former wife. Davis collaborator Herbie Hancock will be involved in the production.

Davis died in 1991 at age 65.

* Some South Dakota farmers and ranchers are upset by the selection of Joan Jett to perform on the state's float in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Because she's a punk rocker? Nope.

Because she's rumored to be a lesbian (or at least bisexual)? Nope.

Because they do give a damn about her bad reputation? Nope.

The South Dakotans are miffed because Jett is a vegetarian and animal-rights advocate.

Trying to avoid a political bovine methane-gas storm, South Dakota Tourism Secretary Jim Hagen said Jett was Macy's idea.

* According to the Associated Press, the Weather Channel is trying a novel approach to turn around flagging ratings: It is reemphasizing weather.

Although Tattle ratings never flag, we're going to try that, too.

Yesterday, it was cold. Brrr.
