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!

Brynn was Matt's college girlfriend. She was a very talented athlete herself, but had to give up playing basketball when she got pregnant. Then, Leinart goes and cheats on her with Paris "Herpes" Hilton. Nice guy.

He left the girl to raise their kid alone while he goes off and pursues his own career and screws around with every bimbo in Arizona. Matt gets what he freaking deserves. Pay up, Leinart!

Seriously, though-- that child deserves more than $6k a month based on what his father is making. ANY court would make that ruling.

Also, why is that he is such a horrible person because he had sex with her and she got pregnant? Why should he have to pay more for "whoring around"? After all, she was there having unprotected sex too. I am not a fan of Matt Leinhart, but I do hate money hungry "whores". And that is what this Brynn Cameron person seems to be.

He makes $700,000 a month and doesn't want his son to have the same lifestyle when he's with his mother? Wake up, TMZ. Could it be that Leinart's lawyer, Laura Wasser, is upset that Ms. Cameron finally got a qualified lawyer? So now what... oh yes, let's attack the baby's mother in the press! And here is TMZ, swallowing the bait - hook, line and sinker. Ms. Cameron is doing what is correct and proper and lawful. Leinart doesn' t want the baby, it's all about keeping as much $$$ as he can.

I am tired of these comments that he should have used a condom....she chose to continue without it, so it's as much her fault as his.

Please like you need 30K a month for a 9 month old. She should be happy he's even admitting it's his son. She more than likely got knocked up on purpose, just like the dude is resonsiable , so is the babymomma. Seems like he's doing all he can for his son, but actually owes her nothing! NOTHING!!! His son yes, his son's mom NOOOOO!!! And 6000 per month more then takes care of his needs. If she's so money hungry she should get a job. Or find another rich sucker and have yet another kid out of wedlock. She's just as much to blame for this child as he is.

We all know that that 30 or 20 grand will not all be spent on her son wake up.

I though Mormons were against this kind of thing? None of this is important anyways. The only thing that is important is that USC keeps winning, no matter what!

I think she is as much a dumb hoe as he was which makes them equal. So if she is asking for $30,000 a month in support then she should have to pay $15,000 of it and he pay the other $15,000.

You're brilliant, aren't you. (laughing) That's exactly why people like you shouldn't reproduce.
That's not how it works. If one parent makes 100,000 a year and the other makes 10,000 a year, then one parent makes 10x what the other does. So he or she is responsible for a much greater percentage of the support of the child. There are child support calculators to determine how much support each parent is responsible should pay. So....if one parent makes 51 million over a 5 year period and the other makes next to nothing, then you can bet that if calculated, HE will pay significantly. I mean come on...he makes over a million dollars a MONTH!!!!! Give me a friggin break!

First of all, no baby in this world need $30k/month. 2nd, that $51 million contract is not guarantee. She is partially responsible for having his baby. She allowed him to had sex with her without using protection. I hope he win the custody.

$51 million is a lot of money and more than Matt will probably spend. That money will enable him to live a very lavish lifestyle, so if Daddy lives that way, the child and mother should as well. So what he bought her a car and gives her $6k a month. That is pocket change to these guys. I think they both were irresponsible for having the child out of the boundaries of marraige, but since they did, they have to face consequences. I'm sick and tired of these men who sire children and want to play house sometimes and party in LA other times. If he doesn't want to give her the money she is asking for, he is selfish. I don't feel sorry for him at all. I feel for the child who deserves millions. He has the right to live in a mansion just like his father and it just so happens he has to be cared for by his mother. That's the way it goes. He should stop whining.

One more time for those of you that seem to be a little slow... Child support is calculated based on the non-custodial parent's income. That means him and his millions. Legally the idea is that the baby is entitled to live the life it would have if the parent's were married. The baby is not penalized financially for the actions of the parents. Newsflash: 6K a month in L.A. is NOT anywhere close to living as a millionaire would!!!

Simple legal issue. He makes X. He the baby daddy. He pays X according to the child support laws of that state, including the case law for weenies who make incredible amounts but whine instead, when they should have been covering their weenie. Doesn't matter where she lives. If he wants to give her a car, that car's not child support...although he seems to think the child can be pampered with a car instead of Pampers.

Baby daddy is an ass.
