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!

Whats with this entitled to the same lifestyle as if they remained married? They were never married. She should indeed get more if they were, but they are not. She is entitled to enough money to care for the child and not her own personal needs.

She's only asking for what her son is entitled. Yes, she will benefit, but if you consider that $6000 a month is only .14% of his yearly income, he could technically be considered a deadbeat dad.

It is doubtful that he will ever see the 51 million, it is mostly backloaded in his contract, and the before he gets the opportunity to earn it, the team will rip up his contract. NFL contracts are not guaranteed. He still makes a lot of dough, so cough some of it up, and take care of the kid.

Leave the man alone!! It sounds like she is just jealous that she is not being taken along for the ride to have her pic in the papers and what not. $30,000 a month? GET OVER YOURSELF B*^(CH!! $6,000 a month? 2 months worth of child support for you is what a majority of the country lives on!! $360,000 a year for child support? Maybe he should just get custody of the boy and she can keep on with her life, living with her parents and having NOTHING!! She probably got pregnant on purpose knowing that he would be a star in the NFL. Nothing but a money grabber!!

First things first, a condom only cost a dollar so you can't say they cost too much. Secondly, we hammer the black athlete about hitting it and not being responsible for the child he bring to this world. Now to be fair there are two huge quarterbacks who have gotten girls pregnant and have just walked away like they were ho's. Matt Leinart and Tom Brady. The funny thing about this is the media has said so little about it this does seem like a bias!!!

I blame both of them! I got pregnant when I was 21 and should have known better to use protection and so should have my son's father!! It is a joint effort to make the baby so it should be a joint effort to raise him too. However, I do think what she is asking is excessive, but then again, that's what the courts are for; to determine the appropiate amount based on income. They both need to pay and raise this kid the best they can. We all make choices and should be prepared to suffer any positive or negative consequences.

Go to Ventura County Star.com and read what she told the local press. I know her, and yes she is a money hungry bitch. She tells everyone how much of a great guy he is and she tells the local paper a different story. She was known to only get guys with money.

Bottom line Matt is this little boys dad. He should support the child. It is based on what you make yearly. Matt@10+million a year and USC college student nothing. She doesn't work. He should at the very least 10k a month. There is no reason to call each other names just because you little boys out there don't have any idea what it takes to raise a child. I'm just happy Matt actually stood up and did the right thing. Unlike the rest of you.

Unbelievable! She could've used birth control if school was SOfreakin' important! All of you gold diggers need to takeresponsibility for the conception issues as well. Why in the hell do you have unprotected sex with a guy of this calliber if you're notlooking for an eighteen year handout?

All of you lazy women who trap men by getting pregnant should get an education and rely on yourself for a change. Equal rights my ass.

Amazing to think that all awoman needs to do is demean herself for an evening and it's like winning the freakin' lottery. Shame on you. You knew the risk when you begged for it inside you . It's your own damn fault.

Should he pay....if it's his, of course. But there are plenty of good kids being raisedon far less than $6,000.00 a month. Stop being so damn greedy.

Signed childless, so you don't get paid by me.
