Matt Leinart --

'Acting' Like a Good Dad Should?

7/26/2007 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL stud Matt Leinart has scored himself another high profile job -- but TMZ has learned the pretty boy QB is busting his ass to make sure his new Hollywood gig doesn't interfere with his daddy duties.

A spy on the L.A. set of a new Adam Sandler project has confirmed that Leinart landed an acting role in the untitled flick, featuring "Scary Movie" star Anna Faris. While sources claim Leinart is serious about the part, we're told that he's only shooting on days he's not scheduled to visit his 9-month-old son with baby mama Brynn Cameron, and when he's free from any football obligations with the Arizona Cardinals. But according to Brynn, Leinart's "Hollywood stuff" is taking his focus away from being a good parent, as she complained to the Ventura County Star, "It's kind of hard for me as the mom ... he comes and goes whenever he wants."

When contacted by TMZ, Leinart's rep wouldn't talk about the movie, but assured the Cardinal faithful that "Matt is focused right now on his way to training camp. He has a job to do with the Arizona Cardinals. That's all we have to say about that."

As TMZ first reported, Leinart is embroiled in a nasty legal battle with his Cameron, who is asking for more than $30K a month in child support from the $50 million-contract jock.

His kid deserves to have the same lifestyle as the dad. Then but the money in trust for him so he can have access to it when he of age. For sure the mom is going to be spending most of that money on herself. I'm surprised she didn't push to get married so then she could've also gotten him for alimoni. Dumb bitches. Go be a REAL women and get a job!

Brynn Cameron needs to grow up and stop being the child.
Crying in the press is not healthy for her son. She is raising him as a single mother she should get over it and stop being so bitter the father isn't everything she wants him to be for her!
Perhaps the father should ask for full custody to please her.
Her unhappiness with him in Hollywood or having celebrity friends is apparent but it's really none of her concern anymore.
She will destroy any future relationship between father and son with her spite and disappointment. Grow up and be the parent you whine about being! She made a bad choice for her, move on, Don't burden the child with it.

While I do feel that Leinart should take responsibility for his child, I feel that $30,000 a month is a bit excessive. If the money is truly for the baby,most of should go into some sort of trust fund that he can access when he is older. There is no reason why she should receive that much. I also do not like the way she is exploiting her son by putting his picture in the local paper while she is whining about Leinart.

if mr. bigshot wants to have sex with many different women, he might want to consider PROTECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yup, sometimes these flings make babies....and those babies are innocent human beings that need time, love, and money from BOTH parents...i too was married to and had kids by another "mr. wonderful"...and it made me sick, too, when people commented on "how WONDERFUL" it must be to have him as a husband and father(when, in fact, it was HORRIBLE).....so, i do feel for her...but....the baby's life will go on, whether matt steps up or not...AND that poor child will have to field that SAME question his whole life..."ISN'T IT WONDERFUL TO HAVE MATT LEINERT AS YOUR DAD?"...bottom line is...the adults should get over themselves and look to making their son's life the most important thing here....oh, and NEXT TIME...USE A CONDOM!

What he is paying is not excessive. Shild support is based on salary. For one child you get a certian percentege of the father's salary. He is worth millions. She should be allowed that much.
What I don't get is , how come she lives at home? She does not pay rent, bills, or a car payment. She can afford to live on her own like most single women raising children and
getting child support

Standards are badly needed.    

Pffffft. How about if Brynn, the baby's mom, worked two jobs and made sure she didn't do them on 'baby visit' day. Who would look after the child day to day? Leinart is HARDLY inconvenienced, and paying lip service to the actual day to day toil of actually being there, 24/7 for the child, is just spin, spin, spin. Long distance, hood ornament daddy. She'll have to import and marry a real man to be there for her son on a daily basis. Immature University jocks and frat boys are usually bad news, girls. Run away, or keep your legs closed.

Brynn Cameron and her parents should have thought about the consequences of her decision to have a child before she graduated from college, i.e. there are options to pregnancy: (1) taking responsibility for one's body to ensure pregnancy does not occur or (2) early abortion.

Being a "mother" is a very serious experience as IT IS the "mother" who shares the brunt of responsibility in rearing a child (whether married or single)! Being given thousands of dollars per month to have others raise your child is not being a good mother. If she's complaining about her job now, just think what the next 17 years will present to her.

It feels to me this guy (unlike many professional athletes) is attempting to be a stand-up father. She and the baby are (most likely) seeing more of him than most women with husbands (fathers of their child) living in the same home.

Something's not right with the "picture of this young mother"....
