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!

What does it take to get through the thick skulls of so many of you?

This is not about what is necessary to raise the baby. It is about what Caliornia law says, and the judge will rule in favor of Ms. Cameron.

It is not about what she needs but what the law says she and Cole deserve.

It will never get to a judge. Leinart and Wasser will settle. Soon.

Being a woman, I can't stand these money hungry bit%#es. Do you really need $30,000 a month for a baby? Or for an adult for that matter. Even $6,000 is way too much. My Sister raised my nephew with help from NO ONE, making less then $30,000 a year. There has got to be better laws protecting men who are willing to help raise their offsprings without being taken advantage of becuase of the $$ they make. This crap pissed me off to no end!

It's ridiculous how fun sex creates a lifetime commitment and the statement he should have kept it in his pants is usually the first to come out. It takes two people. They both are responsible. If the money is truly only for the child and not for her than he should make sure it's put in a trust and used only for the child in whatever lifestyle she may chose for he next 21 years by an administrator.
Or could it be as so many have stated, he has the money anyway so what difference does it matter? What matters is a child is now involved with parents who will eventually hate each other over money. Great life to look forward too!

It's not about what's enough. It's about The mother getting her share of money to raise the child. she needs to get approximately 141,000 per month. That's only being fair.

Fair is fair.

He has a lot of money, now he has a baby and he needs to give a Fair/ proportionate share to the mother to raise their son. $141,000....PER MONTH, NO LESS!!!

You people sound like you want that baby living in a trailer park, or homeless shelter. Heartless people

#320: Let's face it. There are a lot of uneducated people who read TMZ who wouldn't understand the way the law actually works to determine child support if the scales of justice conked them in the head.

Quit even trying. You're right. They'll settle...and for much more than she's getting now. Otherwise, she takes it to court and gets it anyway, as she should under the law.

she is not money hungry. she is not a whore. and speaking as someone who pretty much grew up with this girl, i can swear she is not a whore, she is quite the opposite. every guy in my high school wanted her and i think she dated one guy the whole four years of high school. yeah such a whore. you guys dont even know her, or him. i guarentee the 30,000 is a number her lawyer came up with so they can have leverage in the argument of money. if the lawyer says she wants 30,000, then matt and his lawyers will try to settle out of court for more like 15 or 20 thou, which i think is what they are aiming at. the judge will rule in favor of brynn: shes young, pretty, has a good head on her shoulders, and just wants to go to college so she can in the long run support her kid. yes child supprt should be spent on the kid, so does that mean the kid lives in a mansion by himself while mom lives in the trailer park? no it doesnt, if the kid is primarily with the mom, then she should have a good life too. and for all you idiots that hope he gets the custody he isnty even fighting for, what kind of life would this kid have? his dad is gone about 5 months of the year playing football, and the rest of the year he is effing every girl in hollywood and partying in vegas. yeah hed be a great dad. and just for all you ignorant people who have no vlue how much it costs to live in southern california, well heres your break down: she is on a college scholorship through USC, but she has to return this year or else they will take it away (so there goes her chance to get a job) Where her parents live, it costs a min of about 3000 a month for a house mortgage in a decent house (i know this, my parents live in the same town and i grew up there), as far as gas, well its exactly 3.09 where she lives in Newbury Park. about 50 miles to USC (not including the traffic every day). his precious 6,000 is probably barely covering anything. not to mention the fact that this number is not just made in thin air. it is based on a formula that is used in every custody battle in the state. He is not losing out. He will lose in court,. they will settle for about 20,000 a month and he will be on his way to have more babies.

Matt is no different due to the fact he had the child out of wedlock, it doesn't matter if he wants to be part if his childs life. He's and athlete with alot of money and D--k to pass out to whom ever will take so he deserves too get what he gets. He's no different because he's a white rich athlete. If this was a black athlete, given all the trouble they have been in this would be world wide news.

Thank you #326 for some sanity. I too, got pregnant and WAS using birth control. It DOES happen. How do any of you know whether or not she was using birth control? Do any of you know either one of them? Were you there? Knock off with the crucifying crap. Brynn is simply trying to give her child a good life. As she in in college, she will need to pay for child care, which is VERY expensive nowdays. Get over yourselves. I understand it is very easy to pass judgement sitting behind your keyboards.

227. ACTUALLY, FOR THE UNEDUCATED, EVEN THE DNA TEST WILL NOT GET HIM OFF! HE IS STILL REQUIRED TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT IF THE CHILD IS NOT HIS!

DOESN'T ANYONE WATCH THE NEWS? THERE IS A HUGE CASE GOING ON RIGHT NOW ABOUT THIS CRAP!

You are a moron. In extreme cases the perverted justice system will not pull that crap. If you are refering to the same case I am thinking you are then that is a whole different story. That guy never received a notice in the mail the state said it sent and it surpassed his time for being able to contest paternity which is why he is on the hook having to fight it. THE DEADLINE PASSED FOR HIM TO CONTEST PATERNITY! Their are other extreme cases where guys are left on the hook but that is usually in married situations where the wife cheated. Common sense moron.

Babies are expensive but there is no way she needs 30,000 a month. I make $6000 a month and I also have a 1 year old baby girl and I seem to make it out just fine, I even have enough money for my savings account. It's called child support that money has to go to the baby not for her to spend it on her self. I hate women that do that.

Stop talking about too much already, it's making me sick. there's no such thing as too much. Next you'll be saying that they love the baby too much. $30,000 is going to be the minimum here. It is what it is. It is any but TOO MUCH. It what daddy makes that determines the child support, in this case. It support comes too, 30,000 at least. I hope she gets more!

$30K That is not just for his kid she wants a free ride. $30 K some people make that in a year this way she will never have to work in her life. One more thing she is bitter cuz she sucks at B ball she will NEVER go PRO she will NEVER get paid to play. So why not quit playing and spend more time with the kid and get school done faster so she can BUY HER OWN STUFF. SHE HAD THE KID TO WHY DOES MATT HAVE TO PAY FOR EVERYTHING. THINK PEOPL DON'T JUST SPOUT S**T OUT.
