Chris Brown

Surprise ...

I'm a Father!

3/3/2015 6:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0303-chris-brown-w-babya-4Chris Brown is the proud father of a 9-month-old baby girl ... TMZ has learned.

The baby's mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia -- who we're told has known Chris for several years. 

Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms -- however they're not together romantically. We're told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.

It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place -- and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support.

One thing's for sure ... baby girl looks a lot like Daddy.

'Ghost Adventures' Star

Snatches Pot the Real 'Psycho' Used

To Collect Body Parts

about a minute ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ghost Adventures Zak Bagans Cauldron"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans just scored a disgusting and evil souvenir used by the real life killer who became the inspiration for "Psycho" and a bunch of other Hollywood serial killers. 

Ed Gein was a Wisconsin man who infamously mutilated his victim's body parts in the 1950s, and fashioned their skin tiny masks, gloves, and furniture. If it sounds familiar -- Leatherface from 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' ... Buffalo Bill from "Silence of the Lambs" and Norman Bates were all based on Gein. 

So, Bagans just dropped $2,800 at auction to take possession of the 25 gallon cauldron Gein used to discard his victims' entrails when he gutted them. The thing had been sitting in a Wisconsin woman's home -- used as a flower pot -- ever since Gein's 1984 death in prison.

When she died ... her son (wisely) believed the cauldron was cursed, and wanted it gone ... so now it's Bagans' headache.

Zak, who collects haunted and cursed objects, tells us it's going on display at his home, because he thinks it will "make a nice conversation piece for guests."

Honey Boo Boo

Family Calls BS on TLC Ultimatum

You Breached Our Deal!

3/3/2015 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0226-honey-boo-boo-tlc2

Honey Boo Boo and the brood are laughing off TLC's legal threats ... because they say their contract was breached by the network -- and they have no obligation to fulfill their old deal.

Sources close to Mama June and co. tell us the family claims their health insurance hasn't been paid since November -- which was part of their contract -- so they no longer believe they should answer to TLC.

But our network sources claim the deal only required TLC to pay through 2014 -- which it says was covered in full. For extra generosity, the network claims it agreed to pay for the family's insurance this year too, up until May -- and we're told THAT is June's beef.

We're told TLC intends to make the payment ... it just hasn't yet. 

As we previously reported ... TLC sent the family an ultimatum saying they can't work for another entertainment company until their contract runs its course at the end of May.

The Honey Boo Boo clan says because they haven't gotten the money, they believe they're free to play let's make a deal all over Hollywood.

Drake

Loving Life Down Under ...

A Hot Chick's Bikini

3/3/2015 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-drake-girl-perth-poolside-SPLASH-01Drake did a little importing for his Australian tour -- flying in a hot chick -- from NY to keep him company.  

The "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" rapper was chilling at his hotel pool in Perth, Australia, wearing a smoking babe in a bikini, named Bernice Burgos. We're told they met back in NYC, and they've been "knowing" each other since 2012. Drizzy immortalized her in his verse for the song, "Odio."

She's clearly hot enough to warrant a plane ticket half way around the world. 

By the way, rare shots of Drake shirtless. He ain't hardcore, but he's looking ... fit.

Open Season On Kelly's Seat ...

And Kathy Wants Final OK

3/3/2015 11:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Fashion Police Kelly Osbourne Replacement

Kelly Osbourne's departure opened the floodgates ... Hollywood agents are scrambling to get their clients a shot at her "Fashion Police" seat -- but they'll have to get past Kathy Griffin first. 

Our sources at the network say it's been inundated by candidates -- pitched mostly by agents from CAA and WME. We're also told E! execs are squashing Kathy's desire to apply the stamp of approval. They say the final choice will be theirs.  

So far Naya Rivera, Christina Milian, NeNe Leakes, and Khloe Kardashian remain the front runners, but we're told it's still anybody's game.

Fashion fight!

Lou Ferrigno

Exercises His Right to Threaten Bro

... With a Lawsuit

3/3/2015 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lou Ferrigno Brother Exercise EquipmentLou Ferrigno is angry at his brother (and you won't like him when he's angry) but instead of turning green ... he's skipping right to threatening a lawsuit over his bro's exercise equipment business. 

Lou and his brother Andrew had a legal skirmish a few years back and eventually reached a settlement ... which Lou says limits Andrew to using the phrase "Andrew Ferrigno equipment." He also has to make it clear his biz has no affiliation with Lou's companies and websites.  

Lou claims Andrew has violated the order because he's using the word "exercise" in the name of his store ... and insists the disclaimer is nowhere to be found on Andrew's website or social media.  

Lou's lawyers sent a letter threatening to sue ... and Andrew tells us since then he's met all of his brother's demands. Well, except for removing the word "exercise" from his store's name. 

Andrew tells TMZ, "My brother has money, so why does he need to suck me dry? I am so bewildered by the fact that an actor of his stature would stoop so low as to sue his own brother twice."

Nick Cannon

Shaking Off Mimi

Three Asses at a Time

3/3/2015 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You get a ride! YOU get a ride!! Everybody got a ride on Nick Cannon while he was partying in Jamaica ... and we got video of all the women who lined up to get a piece of him.  

Nick was at Susie's Cafe in Kingston last week when one woman backed it up on his crotch while he was dancing -- and that started the train rolling. Chick after chick after chick ... all getting up close with some Cannon crotch. 

You gotta see Nick in action ... pretty impressive.

All of this was for work ... sorta ... since Nick is in Jamrock scouting locations for a movie he's directing down there in April.

Ah ... who name Mariah, mon?

Steve Francis

VIOLENT CHAIN SNATCHING

At Houston Rap Show [Video]

3/3/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-stevie-launch-07NBA legend Steve Francis was the victim of a violent chain snatching at a rap show in Houston this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has footage of the brazen attack. 

The 38-year-old, 3-time NBA All-Star was onstage with the Sauce Twinz -- a Houston rap duo -- when someone crept up on the unsuspecting Francis and tried to rip his gold chain right off his neck. 

Problem is ... the chain didn't pop -- and Francis was dragged down to the floor where the culprit continued to yank on the necklace while the discombobulated NBA star tried to figure out what was going on. 

Sources tell us the guy ended up removing the chain from Francis and booked it. 

We're also told police were NOT called to the scene. 

As for the perp, no word on his ID -- or if he's connected to the Sauce Twinz. 

We reached out to Francis and the Twinz for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown
's family is grieving over the dire circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ... and we've learned they're also shooting a reality show.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life.

Bobby's lawyer tells TMZ his client will NOT appear on the show.

Bobby's sisters have a history. Leolah is the one who went on the record blaming Ray J for Whitney Houston's death, claiming he fatally fueled her cocaine habit.

Tina is the one who did a sit-down interview and claimed she did crack with Whitney. Tina and Shayne are also the ones who fought at a hotel near the hospital. She hit her son Shayne with a bottle. It's unclear if that will be on the show.

It appears that they have not shot video in the hospital, but we're told they have regular debriefs at home on camera where they talk about the tragedy.
