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 the hell ppl.. stop and think for a minute.. she opened up her legs does she not bear some of the responsibility for the baby being made as well.. everyone wants to blame the father automatically.. what if she told him "i am on birth control we don't need any more protection' duhhhh.. I think he is doing the honerable (sp) thing by buying her a new car and $6000.00 a month is more than enough for someone to live a comfortable life..

Its not like the slacker daddy can't afford it. He needs to take care of his child. He is an arrogant, dead-beat a$$hole......

Get a grip people. How in the hell does she need that much. Don't forget, he earns it, it's not free money. And giving her 30 grand a month to do nothing is rediculous. This is why we lose respect for women. Yes it's his, and he should take care of it, but just because they BOTH, remember that, BOTH, did not protect themselves does not mean she deserves that obsurd number. And by the way, i'm pretty sure she knew what lied ahead when she voluntarily allowed him to nut inside her. No big suprise he was going to get rich in the NFL, since it was only a few months before his pro career started. Wake up idiots.

Matt Leinart is making about $700k a month. He should be *ashamed* of himself for only shelling out $6k for his child and the child's mother. What a selfish ass! I think Brynn Cameron should have gotten a lawyer a long time ago.

Remember, there's two people involved here, not just pretty boy Matt and his $51M. She was just as irresponsible as he was for getting knocked up in the first place. And call her a gold digger? - YES WAY! Ain't no chance that it costs $30G a month to raise a kid. No way in hell. The kid might see a couple hundred bucks a month; that filthy pig of a mother deposits the rest into her bank account. She who owns the kid has the power.

Maybe she should have had an abortion instead of having a child out of wedlock!

Standards are badly needed.    

He had a child with this girl. 52 million over 6 years works out to 8.5 million a year, before taxes. If he pays the mother of HIS CHILD 6 thousand a month, or 72,000 a year before taxes, he gets 118 times as much money per year as the mother of his child. Wrong. With his income, he's trying to sneak out the cheapskates back door at 6K per month. A judge is going to slap him for that. He's the father. If the mom needs to use a lot of it, so what. If the mom is looked after, then his baby will be better looked after. If momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy. If she's struggling to make a living, who is looking after his child?

Yes, she does need $30,000 a month, especially if she continues to buy $2000 handbags - see People's pic of the couple...
Plus, will she continue to play basketball at USC? Seems to me she's on scholarship there.

With 30,000 a month, she could buy her parents a second home, support every kid in city's orphanages, care for her son lavishly and still have lots left over for a boob job!!!
