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!

Child support is to support a child. Not for the child's mother to live above her means in a life of luxury. This is why so many women have children without being married because they want to collect a paycheck each month. What on earth could a 9 month old child need that costs $30,000 a month. I think $6000 a month is too much. Once again it is called Child support. The money is to support the child not the childs mother. It is the mothers responsibility to keep a roof over her head and her childs head. If the mother isn't working and lives with her parents then that makes the father a more fit parent and he should get custody.

She probably said she was on the pill, or put a pin hole in the trojan, just to get pregnant on purpose and take him for his money. It's a classic move that gold digging HOs do. Too bad he got caught up in it.

I say give her 30gs a month - but she can't buy anything for her use with it. She can purchase a home in the child's name - and purchase him clothing, diapers, and such - but my bet is that 30gs a month will end up paying for fake boobs and designer duds for her... I find that offensive - yes - that is his child - but child support is just that - child support and it Doesn't cost 360,000 a year to raise a child... I manage to raise 2 without that kind of money - and they aren't hurting for anything...

I THINK HE SHOULDNT PAY NO MORE THEN ABOUT 1500 A MONTH BECAUSE SHE HELD OFF TELLING HIM AND HSE IS ONE WHO BORKE UP WITH HIM. NOW THAT HE IS MAKING SOME MONEY SHE WANTS IT, BULLCRAP TELL HER TO GET A JOB TO OR GIVE UP CUSTODY 50/50. WHY IS IT THE GUY SHOULD ALWAYS PAY HE IS PAYING ENOUGH FOR THE BABY WHAT IS THE BABY GOING TO DO WIT 6OOO A MONTH. HECK IN 1 YEAR HIS COLLEGE COULD BE PAID OFF.I KNOW THE BABY DONT GO THROUGH NO 6000 A MONTH IN DIAPERS AND FOOD AND CLOTHES. SHE WANTS THE MONEY SO SHE CAN LIVE THE HOLLYWOOD LIFE. TAKE THE MONEY AND PUT MOST OF IT IN AN ACCOUNT SO SHE CANT TOUCH IT AND THE BABY CAN WHEN HE HITS CERTAIN AGE.

They need to keep condom dispensers in the NFL locker rooms! SO sick of these so-called role models having child after child out of wedlock. Sure, they can afford these illegitimate children, but what kind of message does it send to the public where 70% of illegitimate children live in poverty because their mothers don't make enough and many men don't pay child support?!

SICK OF TRASH    

Matt Leinart is actually a very good person and how dare some of you people blame him and say he should have worn a rubber guess what they have BIRTH CONTROL and FEMALE CONDOMS did she think of that. AND for the idiot that said
"UH next time perhaps he will keep it in his pants! Try being more responsible Leinart before a bun is in the over dont expect girls today to be the gatekeeper!!!!!!!!"
He WANTS to be a part of his son's life you ignorant piece of garbage. In NO WAY ON THIS EARTH does it cost $72,000 (the $6000 a month she is offered now) a year to raise a child, let alone $360,000. The fact that she does live with her parents is relevant because she has NO BILLS TO PAY, most responsible adults pay bills. She is just another money hungry piece of trash.

The child support payments have been settled and he is paying $15K a month versus what she wanted ($30K). He always talks about his son out here in AZ and is going back to court in August for custody issues because he wants to see him more in CA and AZ. I guess $15K a month will pay for her parents mortgage, all their bills and another new car for Brynn and $1K towards diapers and toys for Cole. I hope Matt finds a wife and take primary custody. She keeps bad mouthing about him to the media and he nevers says anything negative about her to make her look bad.

She's just as responsible. I can't help but wonder if she thought she was giving birth to her financial security. It takes two to make a baby, and if she didn't want one she could have taken precautions as well as him.

The money is for her having to put up with his BS and because he had a child with her. Guys think they can just get someone pregnant and they'll settle for what they would have thought was a lot of money at one time. He's the childs Father and he's worth 51 Million! The child deserves to be taken care of in the style he would have been had they been (and stayed) ,married. That's the way it is, always has been. If the woman makes more then she has to pay (ask Britney or Reese). Better yet, like someone else said, keep it in your pants. Don't make babies until you have a stable relationship, Duh! Why cause your child a life time of visiting here, living there, "am I with Dad this summer or is it Mom and her boyfriend, who I hate?".

Lets do the math here. Matt get $51 million to play in the NFL. The wife wants $30,000 a month for custody. Matt will have to pay her $360,000 a year or $7,560,000 for her to suport her son for the next 21 years. And most likely she will probably want more later on because the $30,000 a month won't cover his college. This is truely obsurd, and those that say this is a good learning lesson for Matt needs a reality check. The $72 thousand a year he is giving is very reasonable. Even if he is a dead beat father(which he isn't, since he flys out every weekend), he still shouldn't have to fork out that much money. She's taken advantage of his status to get rich off of him, and probably will live the party life style that she did in college.

This is really sad, if he wasn't in the NFL she'd take what she could get. Just like he should have worn a condom, she should have been on birth sontrol. Women should quit having children for meal tickects. Since she still lives with her parents, maybe they should have taught her not to give up everything before you get married. Now she's a baby momma instead of a wife. We women need to get it together and quit being so easy and stupid. Be one and not both.
