Jay-Z carries a heavy load as ‘Girls’ star Jemima Kirke has to be removed from his video shoot

Ma’am, please remove yourself from Hova immediately.

Jay-Z had back problems while filming a 10-minute performance video promoting his “Magna Carta Holy Grail” album. According to sources at midtown’s Pace Gallery, he needed help from security to lighten the load.

Jay Z’s ‘Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film’.

In the video, which debuted over the weekend, Jay-Z talks about performance art and raps the single “Picasso Baby” live. The audience is a group of art world stars like Marina Abramovic and celebs including Alan Cumming and “Girls” star Jemima Kirke, who stood on the sidelines and took turns sitting on a gallery bench while Jay-Z rapped to them during the seven-hour shoot.

But for quirky Kirke, watching quietly wasn’t going to work. In the video, she first takes her turn on the bench, letting Hova serenade her. Wearing hot pink pants and a black top, the smiley actress still has her act together as she lets down her hair and grins away. A short time later, the video cuts to Kirke, now draped on Jay like a cheap suit as he raps to the cheering crowd.

Kirke hangs on to Jay-Z during filming of his video for ‘Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film’.

“She was acting totally nuts!” said one witness, who watched Kirke climb onto Jay’s back and hold on tightly while the hip-hop superstar walked about, rapping to fans without missing a beat. “She kept jumping on his back like a little monkey,” says our source.

Seeing Kirke going bananas, Jay Z’s security staff peeled her off the rap icon.

The ‘Girls’ actress was carted off kicking and screaming, according to witnesses, but this shot made it into the final video.

“Someone was screaming ‘Get her off of him!’ ” says our spy. Kirke went away kicking and begging, “Let us finish!” as she was removed from the gallery.

Rest assured, Jay never lost his cool.

“He kept rapping the whole time!” our amazed onlooker assures us.

Kirke is known to really get into her art. In 2010 she was photographed bawling during a Marina Abramovic performance.

This isn’t the first time that Kirke, a painter who plays the bohemian Jessa Johansson on the popular HBO show, has lost control during a performance art piece. In 2010 she was photographed bawling her eyes out at performance artist Abramovic’s “The Artist Is Present” MoMA exhibition, where Abramovic sat still for more than 700 hours, simply staring at visitors who took turns sitting across from her. Called for comment about their client’s Jay Z meltdown, Kirke’s reps said they knew nothing of the incident.

QUINTO: PLENTY MILES PER HOUR

Zachary Quinto is dating one of the world’s hottest male models, sources tell Confidenti@l. The “Star Trek” star has hooked up with Miles McMillan, who has been the face of Topman and fronted campaigns for Paul Smith and H & M. Quinto, 36, was sighted Monday night at the after-party for “The Butler” at the Bowery Hotel with his arm wrapped around the 24-year-old McMillan. “They were making out and couldn’t take their eyes off each other,” says our source. “They have traveled together and have been getting closer over the last few weeks. There are definitely sparks there.” Quinto split from “Glee” actor Jonathan Groff last month and appears to have wasted no time in finding his latest love interest. Also at the star-packed DeLeon Tequila and Samsung-presented bash were Oprah, Forest Whitaker, Lenny Kravitz, Cuba Gooding Jr., Mariah Carey, Naomi Watts, Liam Hemsworth, Anna Wintour and Harvey Weinstein.

CHRIS HAS HEAVY BOOKINGS

One minute he’s behind bars, the next he’s leaving bars. Chris Brown had a busy Monday after turning himself in at the Van Nuys jail in Los Angeles around 2 p.m. (after a hit-and-run allegation from earlier this summer), staying for only 45 minutes, and then showing up less than 12 hours later partying at AV nightclub. The 24-year-old continued to flaunt his player lifestyle, leaving the club with a mystery blond before jumping in his $700K customized Lamborghini.

HE’S LUTZ OF LAUGHS

While in Chicago for the Lollapalooza music festival, Kellan Lutz entertained pals including Danny Masterson and “Breaking Bad” actor Aaron Paul with his impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sources tell us Paul was in high spirits at ASOS Rocks’ Barefoot Wine bar, even though his show … won’t be bock. “Aaron Paul was hilarious!” said one partygoer, who saw Paul telling people to dance and offering massages to loosen them up. He also managed to talk his way into meeting Salt-n-Pepa, who performed at the bar.

FALCO FOLLOWS MACY’S STYLE

At the Ralph Lauren Girls Fashion Show at Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack, L.I., on Monday, Edie Falco told us her adorable daughter Macy, 5, already has a skill that Falco never had — style. “Now she’s all about, ‘I wanna wear this’ and she’ll say, ‘No, this goes with this!’ ” Falco told Confidenti@l. “But she has a great sense of it. She’s great with color. It’s an aptitude I never had.” Asked if Macy copied mom’s style, Falco laughed and said, “No! She’s got her own thing going on.”

LEATHERS’ SLIM HOPES FOR STARDOM

Sydney Leathers is not fat, she’s from Indiana, and weight is “a sensitive subject for any woman. And the most I have ever weighed is 140 pounds, and I’m 5-feet-6. So I have never been morbidly obese,” she tells Confidenti@l. But the aspiring porn star and Anthony Weiner’s Twitter pal says her days of being mocked over her physique are coming to an end.

“I’m now dieting and exercising,” she says. “I want to be as healthy and look as good as I can.”

‘BACHELORETTE’: FINALLY A RINGER

For the first time in “Bachelorette” history, ABC’s leading lady of reality TV wound up majorly rejected by her first choice. As Desiree Hartsock, 27, and her fallback fiancé Chris Siegfried, 27, made their first public appearance in New York City on Tuesday, not even the shine from Hartsock’s Neil Lane engagement ring could distract fans from the facts: Hartsock wound up settling. Still, the couple looked happy out and about … for now.

SHEEN BACK WITH WINNING WAYS

Just two years after Charlie Sheen spent his time with two adult film stars he called his “Goddesses,” the unpredictable star has found a new bevy of porn stars to pose with him topless — this time, they’re Charlie’s “Angels.” Capri Anderson and Georgia Jones, both porn stars, have reportedly moved into Sheen’s L.A. mansion. On Tuesday, Sheen tweeted this photo from a Hawaii vacation, showing three new sets of … beautiful eyes. Party of five, anyone?

MORE ON BIEB’S LATEST HITS

Southampton Town police have stepped up their investigation into a weekend brawl that centered around bratty pop star Justin Bieber when a brunette waitress and an Asian woman — not a blond woman, as some reports had claimed — left the club with Biebs and his entourage. As Confidenti@l first revealed, the incident started in the club and continued in the parking lot on a night when some media outlets reported an incident-free evening.

GIUDICE’S BUSY DAY IN COURT

Jail? Fuhgeddaboudit. Kim “D” DePaola is hosting an Aug. 14 book-signing party for her “Real Housewives of New Jersey” pal Teresa Giudice at her Posche Boutique in Wayne, N.J. Never mind that Giudice has a court date that day where she’ll be addressing 39 counts of fraud that could make her a Real Inmate of New Jersey. “I don’t understand how she can do a book signing that day,” says a source close to the housewives. “She definitely has balls.”

REBEL WITH PAWS

Sure, Cosmopolitan’s September issue may feature a leggy shot of “The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev on the cover, but Aussie actress Rebel Wilson and an insanely cute fluffy dog are the real stars of the issue. Inside, the curvy comedy star poses for a fall fashion spread alongside the white furball, and gets to wear a red-hot Schott NYC jacket, Miu Miu sunglasses and Michael Kors jewelry. We can’t decide who we love more: Wilson or that photogenic pooch.
