Chris Brown's Baby Mama

Money's Not the Issue ...

He's Pissed Royalty's with His Mom

56 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_nia_guzman_chris_brown_instagram_TMZChris Brown had a $10k agreement in place with his baby mama, Nia Guzman … but when she shipped little Royalty off to hang with Chris' mom, he cut her off. 

Sources close to Nia tell TMZ ... Royalty's parents finally came to an agreement on child support ... settling on $10k per month from CB, starting July 1. As we reported, Chris' camp said Nia initially wanted $15k, but he only wanted to pay $2,500.  

We’re told the new deal blew up though, when Daddy wanted Royalty this week -- but she was already hanging with grandma in Virginia. Since relations between Chris and his mom have been bad for years now ... our sources say Chris got pissed.   

We're told Nia's claiming this is the first time she's ever denied Chris visitation, but looks like once was enough. We broke the story ... Chris is filing to establish paternity in court, so a judge can settle their child support and custody issues. 

According our sources, Nia never wanted to go to court because she didn’t want to seem like a gold digger.

Kendrick Lamar

Geraldo's Twisting My Message ...

I'm About Hope, Not Violence

6 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar is firing back at his critics ... telling us they're using his BET Awards performance to stir up fake controversy -- instead of focusing on the real message of his new hit song, "Alright."

Kendrick squarely responded to pundits, like Geraldo Rivera ... when he came on TMZ Live on Thursday. He opened the BETs by rapping on top of a vandalized police car -- and Geraldo accused him, and all hip hop, of hurting black youths more than helping.

Check it out ... 'cause Kendrick didn't pull any punches. His point -- the cop car was just a side dish, the real meat of his performance was giving people hope.

For what it's worth ... the "Alright" music video is pretty badass.

Miley Cyrus

New Girl/Girl Relationship

Passion or PR Stunt?

7/2/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

miley_cyrus_stella_maxwell_kissing_photos__launchMiley Cyrus' make out session with Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell was intense, but there's some evidence this might have been brilliant guerrilla marketing.

The kissing pics were snapped Tuesday night during a break from the set of a music video for Mike Will's song, "Drinks On Us." It appears they're both in the video, so staging the scene would be brilliant marketing. The video should be big -- it features Mike Will, Future, French Montana and Rae Sremmurd.

As for the "it could be real" side ... according to our sources, Miley and Stella have been hanging since Miley and Patrick Schwarzenegger called it quits back in April. The two have been pictured together quite often, and some of the photos seem very couple-y.

Stella even hit up a Miley concert recently and posted a video of herself singing along to one of Miley's songs ... and the lyrics were of the XXX variety.

0702-subasset-miley-cyrus-instagram-02Stella also has a history with male celebs, but she's also been linked to a Victoria Secret model. 

So we gotta ask ...

NHL's Slava Voynov

90 Days in Jail

In Domestic Violence Case

7/2/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

L.A. Kings star Slava Voynov has been sentenced to 90 days in jail in his domestic violence case. 

Voynov was initially charged with felony corporal injury to a spouse stemming from an October 2014 incident at their home in Redondo Beach. 

But in what amounts as a victory for Slava, he was able to strike a deal with prosecutors in which the felony was reduced to a misdemeanor, in part, due to a biomechanical engineer who said Slava's wife's injuries appeared to have been the result of an accident.

Miss USA

Trump Won't Make a Penny From Reelz

7/2/2015 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-miss-usa-reelz-021

The CEO of Reelz, which has agreed to run the Miss USA pageant, tells TMZ, Donald Trump will lose money because the fee the network is paying is way less than the cost of production.

Stan Hubbard tells us, he made the decision to air the pageant because it's a TV show, not a political event, and the women participating should not be punished for Trump's remarks.

Hubbard thinks it's hypocritical for people to demand a boycott, because it's no different from buying music or watching TV shows and movies featuring entertainers who have wacky views.

The CEO says he personally disagrees strongly with Trump's remarks about Mexicans, but he feels strongly the pageant should not be the ultimate victim.

As for money, Hubbard says "Trump is not going to profit from what we're paying. What we've agreed to pay doesn't even dent the cost of production."

Hubbard says right now there are no advertisers and it will be a challenge given the political climate and the July 4th weekend, where everyone's gone. But he says Trump won't see a penny of ad revenue.

Hubbard also says pageant organizers are trying to find a Hispanic host. He also says a series of PSAs promoting "Hispanic non-political causes" will air during the show.

Miss USA will air on Reelz July 12.

Ben Affleck

Even Jen Doesn't Believe

He Messed with JLo

7/2/2015 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-ben-affleck-jen-lopez-jen-garner-tmz-01Jennifer Garner has issues with Ben Affleck for sure, but they have nothing to do with Ben's former fiancee, Jennifer Lopez.

Sources directly connected with the couple tell us, neither Ben nor Jen have even raised JLo's name in their decision to divorce. More specifically, we're told Garner has no issue on that front ... it's not about JLo.

The stories about Ben and JLo started circulating after Ben walked over to Jen during the Oscars, said something, and walked away as she brushed his arm. 

That said, on the other hand, our sources will not say Ben and Jen never argued about other people during their marriage.

Ryan Seacrest

Junk-Grabbing ...

Wine-Guzzling Fun!

7/2/2015 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0702-ryan-seacrest-chris-boat-fameflynetThisssss ... is Ryan Seacrest acting like a raging frat boy on Spring Break -- with his buddy, Thor -- and it's kinda awesome.

It's a side of Seacrest we never get to see -- but while partying with Chris Hemsworth on a yacht off the coast of Italy, he let loose ... swigging wine from a bottle and grabbing his crotch with reckless abandon.

Funniest part of Ryan's version of going HAM -- the bottle he's chugging looks a lot like ... rosé! Yeah, it's probably a $1,000 bottle, but still ... rosé?

Baby steps.

Paris Hilton

FAKED Horror in 'Plane Crash' Stunt ...

In on the Prank

7/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton is a better actress than we thought ... we've learned she was totally in on the "near plane crash" stunt.

TMZ has obtained a document prepared by the Egyptian production company behind the prank. Turns out Paris wasn't their first choice. The company sent the offer to the reps of other American celebs back in March, offering them big money to participate in the prank.  

The document states, "We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board."

The doc goes on, "We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

And the document even mentions the stunt has the blessing of Dubai authorities ... "Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project."

Sources say the production company offered a huge amount of money to a willing celeb ... in the million dollar range. 

We got Paris out Wednesday in Bev Hills, and listen closely ... she talks about the pilot "taking it too far." The question ... what, if anything, was she expecting?

A Nipple Is a Nipple

Is a Nipple ...

7/2/2015 8:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chrissy Teigen thinks nipples are like the Mona Lisa ... completely overrated. 

Teigen ran into our photog in Bev Hills Wednesday, telling us why she "f**ked" with Instagram this week with her bare boobie photo assault.

Clearly, C.T. doesn't think lady nips are a big deal ... and vows even MORE social media toplessness in the very near future. 

In other words, she's gonna milk this controversy for all it's worth.

Kevin Hart & The Rock

Smoke on Movie Set Sparks 'Beef'

With Mass. Fire Chief

7/2/2015 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Kevin Hart and The Rock engaged in some on-set hijinks when shooting for their new movie was interrupted by a minor fire emergency -- which accidentally led to K-Hart kinda pissing off a fire chief.

The Somerville Fire Department tells TMZ they responded to the call early Thursday morning. It wasn't much -- just a light fixture with smoke coming out of it, which took less than 15 mins to put down.

Kevin posted a funny vid with The Rock as they waited for firefighters to do their thing, but in his caption he mistakenly thanked the city of Boston instead of Somerville. The Somerville Fire Chief did NOT think that was a wickid pissa -- he quickly corrected Kev's mistake when we spoke to him. 

The chief did not add, "Say hi to your mother for me" -- but we know he was thinking it.
