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!

Leigh,
Yes, although he has plenty of money to give her what she is asking for and he should, the 51 million is for a six-year deal. Can't you read?

Why do these athletes go around banging chicks without protection, then whine when they knock them up and have to pay?

No sympathy for Leinart, absolutely none!

IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

wow...a WHOLE 6 grand a month? I was previously married to a doctor who only made around 200 grand a year and I get 4 grand a month. THIS guy has a 51 million dollar contract. Yeah, I think that kid should get a little more than that. It's pathetic that these guys want to do the deed but don't want to have to support the children afterwards. The money isn't for the woman its for the kid.

That baby needs 30K a month like Leinart needs 51 million. Spoiled arrogant athlete. My kids see their dad everyday....because we are married! (I know, I know, what a novel idea)

If he can live the lifestyle of 51million over 6 yrs his son has just as much of a right to live the lifestyle according to his financial bracket in the family law guidelines.

#14 because when Leinart finds the girl of his dreams and marries her Baby Momma will be left in the cold as will the baby. It is called financial security for yourself and the spawn to get whay you can while you can. Baby mommas are notoriously kicked to the curb and left without. Why should he live it up whilst his baby lives with lesser means? Furthermore he should buy stock in rubbers I hear he gets around so another tot might show up shortly if he does not learn his lesson.

Does anyone really believe that "Brynn" won't be spending the majority of that $36K/month on herself?

And you wonder why these girls target athletes.

Athletes: Rich and STUPID!

Why should she get $30,000 a month? Child support is to support the BABY, not the mother. $6,000 is more than sufficient to support a 9 month old, especially if she is living at home (because she probably isn't paying rent or bills). When the baby is older and needs more, that's when he'll get more. Just because the father is a millionaire, doesn't mean the mother gets to be. Its about the baby, not about the "baby momma."

$6000/month is more than enough. That #$%@ needs to get job. Living with her parents? The money is suppose to be for the child. I dought she spends anything close to 6k/month on their son. I hope he gets custody

Child support is geared to income, so he should be prepared to pay.
It's about 'loss of lifestyle' for the children......
