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!

Well    

She can't make her own money because she's working full-time with no pay taking care of THEIR child while he's off pursuing his passion and making a freaking fortune doing it. Her career and her life are on hold. His kid and his ex, the mother of his child who works taking care of his child every single day, should be able to live just as well as he does.

He owes her.

This is the first time I've ever commented on one of these stories, but women like this piss me off.. and yes, I'm a woman. Child support is just that, CHILD support. This guy shouldn't have to "give" the woman anything for herself. She knew what she was doing when she had sex with him, he wasn't doing it by himself. $6,000 is WAY more than anyone should ever need to raise a baby, with that much you will overly spoil a child. Kids are spoiled enough as it is these days. My mom raised me by herself with $100 a month from my sperm donor and I never NEEDED for anything. Yes, she (my mom) deserved more from him to help out with me, but the point is, you don't need that much money for a baby, she obviously wants that money for herself and that's not what child support is about, it's not alimony (which is a whole other bunch of BS in my opinion, I wish people would take responsibility for themselves more often). The days are gone when women have to stay home and can't learn how to take care of themselves.

Thank god my mom set a good example for me on how NOT to be a greedy bitch who blames all her problems on other people. It takes two, and I think he's already putting up more than his share to raise that kid, she is responsible for her share of raising it as well. It's women like that who give us a bad name. Step up and take some responsibility for yourself. Problem is, she decided to have sex and then have a baby before she grew up herself. Besides, I'm sure he'll have some kind of custody and so she is probably looking for that amount for a partial month since he's responsible for the cost of the baby when it's with him also.

You all are right , it is his responsibility, but 30 grand a month is ridiculous! We all know how it goes! She knew the job was a dangerous one before she took it! He was Hollywood!! before little Cole was born.She gives all real hard working moms a bad name, It does not take 30 grand a month to raise a child, the B$@*#H is tripping!!!!!!!! And if I was Matt I'd use all 51 mil to fight that floozy in court so she can't get over it's just not fair!!!!!

Reall??    

It sounds like these two are the immature ones and not ready for a child. We have to hope that this child will grow up as normally as possible.

Let's remember that this type of case is not uncommon in our courts today! This is happening all over the US. Why are we so surprised that he doesn't have much to do with the baby and that she is wanting so much money a month?!? These two are both using that baby for their own agenda. Again, why are we so surprised? This is what the world has become and it will continue to get worse.

It is unfortunate that our youth today don't take these experiences and learn from it.

One final thing, guys - if you or the girl don't have a condom, then don't pull it out. Girls - same goes for you, if neither of you have a condom, keep the legs closed. This truth alone will help reduce unwanted children from being born or aborted.

Whoever made the comment about him having to pay for her school is crazy. The support is for the baby...not her. If they were married, than yes he should potentially have to pay for her school. It is up to every single mom out there to make a life for their child and a better life for themselves. He definitely needs to fork over the money, but is $30K necassary...probably not. However, thats how it is when you have that kind of money...whenever you contribute sperm or get divorced you will pay and pay dearly.

What part of this don't you people understand? Child support is based on what the father makes. IF he is a gazillionaire it is likely that the mother will get what she's asking for. There's not 2 sets of laws, one for poor men and another for rich ones. A percentage of earnings IS JUST THAT!!!!! Duh.

Hmmm, $51 million over 6 years? That's $708,000/month. To those who say she's a gold digger: he's a dead beat dad who doesn't want his son to live the opulent life HE lives, because the mom benefits, as well. She is asking for 10% of his after tax income and SHE is a gold digger? Sounds like Matt's getting a bargain.

My only comment is this: Leinart has a 51 million dollar contract and the mom wants a certain percentage to raise their son. The mom comes up with a figure of $30,000 a month, here is my question to everybody: How many of us out there make $30,000 a year and are raising a family. What would somebody need $30,000 a month for their newborn. Last I checked clothes and formula don't cost that much. Must be all the toys!!

A child is entitled, by law, to live the lifestyle he/she would have if the parents remained married. Why should the child subsist on a paltry $6000 when his dad has megabucks???

AND the child is entitled to share in that lifestyle even if his parents are NOT married.

This is why one should not have a baby out of wedlock. It leads to all short of problems. Matt should be given custody over the off-season, Brynn can get him the rest of the time. They can figure out the whole holiday thing and maybe next time Matt will be more careful. And if he doesn't get custody, she deserves more money. The kids needs a real house to live in, not just his grandparent's house.
Most importantly, why is it that of the top 3 first round quarterbacks of the 2006 draft that Jay Cutler is the ONLY one that doesn't have a Baby Momma Drama? Oh yeah, 'cause he's the smartest and best of them all.
