'Picasso Baby' Director Denies That Jemima Kirke Was Kicked Out of Jay-Z Video Shoot


The 'Picasso Baby' director says rumors that the 'Girls' star was kicked out during the filming of Jay-Z's performance art film are 'absurd' and 'utter bulls**t.'

Amid rumors that broke out on Wednesday that "Girls" star Jemima Kirke was reportedly kicked out of Jay-Z's "Picasso Baby" shooting for "acting totally nuts," the performance art film's director Mark Romanek speaks up to defend the featured artist. He called the rumors "absurd" and "utter bulls**t" in a message he posted on Twitter.

"I hope she doesn't mind me saying so, but these absurd rumors about Jemima Kirke's behavior at the PICASSO BABY shoot are utter bulls**t," wrote Romanek. The tweet was in response over reports that the TV actress climbed onto Jay-Z's back "like a little monkey" after Hov rapped to her as she sat on a gallery bench, where the other invited artists also sat down as the rap superstar gave a six-hour long live performance of his "Magna Carta Holy Grail" track.

Kirke was allegedly peeled off from Jay-Z's back by security, kicking and pleading them to "let us finish!" This was apparently not the first time the actress/painter grabbed attention during a performance art shoot. Kirke was photographed bawling her eyes out at New York-based Serbian performance artist Marina Abramovic during her "The Artist Is Present" MoMA exhibition back in 2010.

Likewise, Romanek's defense of Kirke is the second time he speaks out against false reports, after last week he slammed claims that Jay-Z did not perform the song live but rather lip-synced it. Romanek firmly stated that "At no point during the day did he lip sync," saying that was the whole point of a performance art film and that if he had lip-synced, it would have been simply a music video."
