Baby Mama

Forcing QB

Out of the Pocket?

7/24/2007 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matt LeinartHe's taken on some of the biggest, baddest men on the planet, but it's his baby mama who's hitting football stud Matt Leinart where it hurts the most -- his wallet!

TMZ has learned that the NFL pretty boy is locked in a raging legal fight with his ex-girlfriend, Brynn Cameron, over the couple's 9-month-old son Cole. According to sources close to the case, Brynn wants Matt to hand over more than $30,000 per month! That's a ton of jack for a 21-year-old living with her parents! According to sources close to the case, Leinart's pissed -- having already bought her a car, as well as voluntarily giving her around six grand a month. Leinart signed a six-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals in 2006 -- reportedly worth around $51 million.

We're told Leinart's also waging a "gung-ho" battle for custody, and recently filed a petition to establish paternity. Sources tell TMZ that the former USC star already "comes back to L.A. once a week, every week, to see the baby," but he wants a schedule where he can see the kid in Arizona as well. Unlike most pro athlete dads who have kids out of wedlock, we're told Matt is an engaged father who wants to be in his son's life.

But Cameron claims she's doing all the hard work when it comes to parenting, telling the Ventura County Star that Leinart "comes and goes whenever he wants ... he likes that Hollywood stuff and I don't like that."

The two are scheduled to hammer it out in court on August 13. Attempts to contact Cameron were unsuccessful. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

No kid is worth $30,000. Stupid whore. Like that baby is going to see more than $1,000 a month! I say, give the kid a $1.mill dollar trust fund when it's 18 to be used for like college, and I think $6,000 should be more than enough. She's a 21 year old kid living with her parents who got knocked up!?!??! She was just his girlfriend and not his wife. However that is his kid, but c'mon...look at her motives...that kid is just her meal ticket, I feel bad for kids in hollywood....*sometimes...when they have idiots for parents.

Is that b**ch crazy?! $30K a month is ridiculous! How about she gets a job to take care of HER expenses and let that $6K a month go to where it belongs--THEIR CHILD

Women like her make me absolutely sick to my stomach!!!

My daughter attends USC. Condoms are always available for free to students at the health center, so neither one of them has any excuse for an unintended pregnancy. I am so sick of women who "accidentally" get pregnant and see the father as an 18 year meal ticket. That trick is so old! But if a guy isn't willing or is too stupid to wear a condom he should be prepared to face the responsibility of fatherhood and child support. They are both at fault, but ultimately it is the child who suffers.

How can the precious dear make it on only $30,000 A MONTH? No doubt Leinart needs to "man up" on the support - maybe $15,000 a month - which means Brynn will have to scrape by on ONLY $180,000 a year - but then maybe she can pay Mom n' Dad the rent they deserve. Unfortunatley, the facts of the story do make her look like a jealous, money grubbing bee-otch.

#103 Johnny So Cal: You ask why is it the man's responsiblity to buy condoms? If you as a man do not want to pay child support wear a damn a condom!!! I don't know if this girl is a gold digger or not but if she is she got what she wanted because he was a damn fool. So if Matt or any man with his kind of money don't want to give up $30 K a month. Wear a condom!!!

118. You all are blaming this guy.... SHE LIVES WITH HER PARENTS!!!!! He is already giving her $6000 a month in child support. Besides, if the kid ISN'T his, after they do the paternity test, and the judge says the kid isn't his, that $6000 is going out the window, and she'll be pretty messed over, having to actually WORK.... what a novel idea???. A 21 year old needs to go to college and get a life of her own. She's only out for his money.

what a wonderful display of "da' baby mama's" upbringing. the typical ne'er do well gold digger showing what she is truly made of. she has done nothing more than prostitute herself under the guise of "making sure that the babiesneeds are met." this is yet another reflection of why men do not want to commit themselves to a relationship.

Let's break it down.
A lot of that money is probably for a house for her and the baby.
If you live in California a mortgage can easily run 6k a month. Then taxes are about 5 - 11k a year. Have I mentioned her utility bills??? A lot more in her area.
She is still in school full time, therefore probably a little hard to work and be a Mom and go to school full time. (I know millions of people do more with no help, that is not the point here, Matt is a multi-millionaire) That money will also help with her schooling to be a better Mom for her child. She also goes to a pretty pricey college.
Since she is in school, she will need a sitter while she is away at class. (Can't make Grandma and Grandpa do it all the time)
Not to mention diapers, clothes, food, baby car seats, toys, cribs, doctor's appointments, NOW travel to Arizona (baby can't fly on its own).
And most of all, the guy is loaded. His baby should be spoiled and the Mom should not have all the worries while he is a part time Dad. Football also starts soon and he will be on the road a lot. Even if they were together, he would still be a part time Dad because of his schedule.
Also,maybe he should spend less time on the red carpet with his buddy Nick and more time being a Dad.

Just another example of people who can't control themselves and are not smart enough to use birth control but " deserve" 51 million dollars to throw a ball. I agree that amount of $$ per month is not nessacary to raise a bay regardless of whether she is living with her parents or not, BUT when u make that ,much $$ u are gonna get screwed by babies momma everytime.

She Never Learns    

$72,000 dollars year TAX-FREE for "CHILD SUPPORT" is more than 99.999% of americans have pay for each of their children.

If she wants other kind of support, she should state that, not use the baby to be her meal-ticket to living in 90210.

There is no constitutional right to live in Beverly Hills.

She was his girlfriend when they were both at USC and she was on the basketball team. When I heard that she was pregnant I thought that they both were idiots. I think she is asking for more because last week there was an article I think in Sports Illustrated about Matt and how happy he is to be a Dad and how he cchanges diapers.Since she has sole custody, he sounds like a hypocrite. I think that if you take antibiotics it can nullify birthcontrol pills for a week or two .But it just shows how irrisponsible they both were.

Child support laws tend to be more and more ridiculous the higher the income level becomes. Of course a child should be provided for, and it is clear that Matt has been more than willing to do this WITHOUT being forced to do so by a court. But as I said, child support laws become silly when you are dealing with a millonaire parent. If the laws were truly fair, the father would be forced to pay a certain amount per month, but the mother should be forced to itemize her expenses, and anything excess should go into a trust for the child until they are 18. That way, if $6,000 is being given per month, and it only costs $3,000 to provide a decent home, food, clothes, etc., then the excess $3,000 should go into the trust. The mother should NEVER be rewarded or paid to raise her own child, and as such should not benefit personally from money meant solely for the child. And in so many cases like this, $30,000 per month unfortunately will most likely be spent by the mother on her personal pleasures.

If Matt were smart, he would just sue for custody and pay nothing. I would have my lawyers argue that the mother has no financial stability and is incapable of raising the child in the manner Matt could. Then he could hire a Nanny for 100k a year and save 20k per month. Unfortunately again, the laws are unfair and would likely side with the mother even if she couldnt provide for the kid. How lame is that. But sueing for full custody might get her to drop her ridiculous demands for 30k in the least. And if he wins, she loses the baby and the money.
