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!

There is a difference between extortion and a reasonable demand for child support, and this situation reeks of extortion. It’s not about providing for the kid, it’s about the money! Someone involved in defending Leinart needs to investigate that woman’s background and former lifestyle as well as her family’s financial background and lifestyle, since she still lives with the folks.

I always get suspicious when a woman “accidentally” gets knocked up by a successful man, i.e. athlete, lawyer, doctor or other executive type. Forget about checking for STDs - now successful people practically have to ask potential lovers to submit to a CREDIT CHECK before getting involved with them.

MATT LEINARTS EX GIRLFRIEND HAS THE RIGHT TO OPEN HIS WALLET "AFTER" THE PATERNITY TEST BUT THERE`S NO REASON TO GET GREEDY ABOUT IT. $30,000.00 A MONTH IS RATHER EXTRAVGANT FOR ANYONE. SHAME ON THE COURTS IF SHE`S AWARDED THAT MUCH. SHE`S JUST SEEING DOLLAR SIGNS. WAS THIS A TRAP FOR MONEY WITH THE PRO??? SHAME ON HIM FOR NOT PROTECTING HIMSELF.

6000 A MONTH SOUNDS LIKE A LOT TO ME. SOUNDS LIKE A GOLD DIGGING W>>>>
SHE SHOULD BE HAPPY WITH WAS SHE IS ALREADY GETTING. 72,000 A YEAR TO RAISE A CHILD IS WAY TOO MUCH.

It doesn't matter that he signed a contract for 51 mil, $6000 a month is a big chink of change. Most baby mama's couldn't dream of getting that much. The fact that he bought her a car doesn't matter either. It was a gift. All that matters is that he is taking steps to make sure his child is taken care of. Looks like he is doing a good job of it. Her problem is that he is engaged to someone else and wants to make his life hell. If she didn't want any part of his Hollywood life, she shouldn't have put herself in that position. I'm sure she was loving it while he was spending it all on her.

#100 If Brynn had morals, she wouldn't be in the situation she is in right now. I am not saying that Matt was a saint because he wasn't. What are we all arguing about anyway? Two people decided to do something that comes with consequences. It has nothing to do with race, or his NFL status. They both need to concentrate on what would be best for their child.

$6,000 a month is more than enough to feed and clothe a baby. And when that baby is grown he will be the heir apprant to his dad's fortune. So i don't see how any of you vindictive bitches on this thread can say this woman deserves $30,000 a month!

How is she a gold digger? If dad is living large, his son should be living large too. Matt should have been more careful. It's not just her responsibilty to prevent an unplanned pregnancy. Now it's time to pay for his mistake.

Do remember that the child deserves to live at the same standards of life that he is living in. Which means the child deserves more than 30,000$ a month. That is how child suppport court works. You live the high life, so does your kid. Which you would think 30,000$ a month is a drop in the bucket when it comes to 51 million AND endorsements! Money hungry my ass, I would do the same thing!

Okay she is not responsible for him wearing a condom! Duh! She could have used birth control. Maybe she wanted to get pregnant and didnt use birth control. HE had the choice of wearing a condom and didnt. Now he pays. It works both ways. If she doesnt use the money for the childs well being..ie..private schools, sports, whatever lavish extras for the child...he can just take her back to court.

this lil 21 year old ain't coming up with this thinking by herself, her family is filling her head with all this hollywood hype that she doesn't like what a bitch. just think at 21 6000.00 a month being given voluntarily aint no joke! be satisfied stupid it ain't like you're his wife or anything you're just another jump in the hay that tried to bag him but couldn't. it was your responsibility also to use protection, i can't believe in this day and age people are still trying ti snag a guy with the oldest trick in the book.count your blessings and don't get greedy,just because he is gonna get it doesnt mean you got it. he should opt to take you to court since your interest is not the child but on how much money he got or is going to get, dumb ass!

Personally I think he should own up to his responsibilities but I also think she should to. There is a difference in wanting child support and using the child as an excuse to get what you want. Now if she is asking for more money because she honestly needs it then he needs to give it up. If she asking for more money just to be asking because she knows he can afford to give it up then there is a problem. I think that he needs to set up a contract between the two of them saying that all the money goes to his child needs and not to her to be on the safe side. Coming from a woman's point-of-view females would do anything to get back at their baby father. I mean any means neccessary.

The money amount is decided upon what he makes not what anyone says the babyshould have. Its based on his income ........plain and simple. The mother has custody so the money comes to her for the baby. I'm sure the baby doesn't have a bank account or ATM card yet.
