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!

Gold Digger$ settin' traps    

What a money-grubbing whore. Is the only way this lazy bi*ch can make a living is lying on her back and trapping jocks? That slut will spend the $30,000 a month on everything but that child. Brynn Cameron is a dirty, nasty skank!!

And visitation rights have absolutely NOTHING to do with child support. Even if Matt never sees the child or chooses not to, he still needs to pay. The law does not allow for children to be used as bargaining chips. If he keeps playing with fire, the courts will burn him and his son will grow up thinking he's not the bastard, but rather his father is, which is certainly the case, in my opinion.

oNLY GIRLS WOULD MAKE STUPID COMMENTS LIKE HE SHOULD HAVE TO PAY UP $30k A MONTH. ARE YOU SERIOUS? IT DOES NOT TAKE 30K A MONTH TO RAISE A CHILD, IT TAKES 30K A MONTH TO RAISE A FAMILY AND THATS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. SHE'S MONEY HUNGRY AND PRETTY A DEAD BEAT LIVING AT HOME WITH HER PARENTS. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHERE THE 6K SHE'S GETTING A MONTH ALREADY IS GOING. I BET SHE'S WALKING AROUND IN SOME REALLY NICE STUFF. LET THE MAN BE APART OF HIS CHILD'S LIFE AND STOP BEING A MONEY HUNGRY LIL BRAT. YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY HE EVEN COMES AROUND CAUSE IN MOST OTHER SITUATIONS THE DAD CAN'T BE FOUND. GOODLUCK MATT, I HOPE YOU GET JOINT CUSTODY AND SHE GROWS UP. BETTER YET I HOPE THE KIDS NOT YOURS AND YOU TAKE HER TO COURT TO RECOUP ALL THE MONEY AND THE CAR YOU ALREADY GAVE HER.

Hey Brandy,
Did you just drop in??? Get with the full story. Brynn has two years of school left where she is a scholarship athlete. That IS a full time job along with taking care of a child. I suggest you read what stacy had to say in #299. to get a reality check...Matt Leinart is getting off EASY if he is required to pay 30K a month...

Quoting stacy at #299...
"Actually I think that Brynn is right to ask for more than $6000 a month. Usually the child gets 20% of the father's income. So if he is making $51 mil in 6 years that $8.5mil a year and 20% of that is 1.7mil so Brynn should technically get about $141,666 a month according to his income. Not to mention that if he does endorsement deals that adds more income. Hello she is not asking for much and I read that Brynn is going back to USC this semsester so it would be hard for her to travel back and forth to AZ if he wants to be a father then he needs to step up. "

30,000 is just a number right now. When they get in front of a Judge she's going to be awarded 20% of his income. She'll be getting at least 141, 000 per month. All the more power to her. Its not cheap raising kids. She buy a house, start a college fund, a privide a comfortable lifestyle for herself and baby. The daddy make that kinda $$$$, 141,000 a month is directly proportional to his income. This is a no brainer.

He doesn't make 51 mill a year, he makes 51 divided by 6 years, 6000 is a lot of money for sitting around and taking care of a kid, she lives with her parents and doesnt have any bills!

I think $6,000 a month on child support is WAY MORE then enough for a kid.I have 3 kids and make way way way less the Matt Leinart and they seem to be fine.Plus she lives with her parents.Come on. Its just a typical scorned women who thought she would be with him forever,living the good life.Whats this world coming to.At least he wants to be part of his life.How many stories do you hear of players,actors,and just everyday people who can give a crap about their kids.

The child does deserve to have all the advantages as the father, but the mom is not entitled to that. If every penny of that 30k a month is spent only on food/clothes/doctors/education of the child then I have no issue with it. But when these moms start using this money to buy new things for themselves thats when it crosses the line.

"Loss of lifestyle"? You gotta be kidding. Cole is a newborn, used to darkness and amniotic fluid. Post labor, he's used to getting $6K. I'm not saying Matt doesn't have responsibilities. He's a stand-up guy for doing as much as he is. The majority of that $30 grand (whatever the number ends up to be), should be put into a trust for the child to prevent excessive mommy spending. They were together before his NFL contract. Britt may not have been a gold digger then, being an athlete herself, but she sure as heck seems like one now!

First, they were a couple when she conceived. Second, the $51 mil is not all his and sitting in his bank account; he's got managers, an agent, and "people" that all get a cut. Lastly and finally - and although I am pro single-moms, the $30K is to prove a point. It's an extravagant amount of money to raise one infant child. He'll be a good provider and fathe, but not at the tune of $30K a month, people. Get real!
