Police in New York are on the lookout for music producer The-Dream after he allegedly punched, kicked, and strangled his ex-girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time, law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- but the producer insists the allegations are bogus.
According to law enforcement, the alleged incident took place in April 2013 at the Plaza Hotel, roughly three months before Dream's ex-GF Lydia Nam gave birth to his infant son.
It's unclear what prompted the alleged attack and if Nam ever sought medical attention -- but for some reason, she didn't file a police report until November, which is when she described the alleged assault to police.
Law enforcement sources tell us, Dream (real name Terius Nash) is now wanted for questioning by police in connection with Nam's allegations -- which means if they find him ... he'll be taken into custody.
For The-Dream's part, he not only insists Nam is lying -- sources close to the producer tell us, he thinks she's a vengeful woman who's plotting to use this alleged crime as a way to extend her visa in the U.S. (Nam is Canadian.)
According to law enforcement sources, Dream was already arrested in connection with a separate domestic violence incident (also involving Nam) last June in Newport Beach, CA ... but Nam refused to press charges, so the D.A. rejected the case.
We reached out to Nam for comment -- so far, no word back.
'Southern Charm' Star
I Gave Birth (For Real)
To My Co-Star's Baby
4/15/2014 12:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
So much for reality television ... the 21-year-old star of "Southern Charm" who had a pregnancy scare on the show -- but said her test came back negative -- just had a baby.
Sources close to the show tell us Kathryn Dennis gave birth to a healthy baby girl 2 weeks ago -- the very day the pregnancy-scare episode aired on Bravo. And the baby daddy is her mega-rich 50-year-old co-star Thomas Ravenel.
The hookup between Kathryn and Ravenel was one of the big storylines on the show ... but at the time, pregnancy tests showed Kathryn was NOT pregnant.
But after filming ended, we're told Kathryn and Ravenel began shacking up in Palm Beach, FL -- where they now live as a couple -- and Kathryn got pregnant for real.
Fun Fact: Ravenel is a former treasurer of South Carolina who was was forced to resign and served 8 months in prison ... after he was convicted in 2007 of cocaine distribution.
We May Have Banged in 10 Cities
But It's Not My Baby!
3/29/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Flo Rida says he thinks the woman who's going after him for child support is a scammer, because he believes the unborn baby isn't his.
Natasha Georgette Williams ... says she had sex with Flo in almost every city mentioned in "Dancing in the Streets" -- Miami, L.A., Atlanta, Rochester, NY and Vegas ... and X marked the spot in one of those places.
Flo is not disputing he had sex with her, but he's unconvinced he was her only partner. So he says he'll only pay her temporary support while she's pregnant if DNA proves her right.
Every boy, grab a girl, everywhere around the world ...
Roddy White to Baby Mama
NY is Bad For Our Kids!
3/19/2014 7:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Atlanta Falcons superstar Roddy White does NOT want his kids to grow up in New York -- and he's begging a judge to block his baby mama from moving the children to NYC before it's too late, TMZ Sports has learned.
Roddy is going to WAR with Marangelis Marrero -- who gave birth to two of Roddy's kids (one in 2009, one in 2011).
White says Marrero recently told him she plans to move to the Big Apple with the kids -- and he's FURIOUS ... claiming she'd be messing with the custody deal they have in place since they both currently live in Georgia.
In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, White says, "It is not in the children's best interest that they be allowed to relocate out of state."
In fact, Roddy's so upset ... he wants the judge to empower him with "final decision-making authority regarding the children."
But Roddy's anger might not stem from the crowded streets and rats -- it could be about $$$.
According to court docs, Roddy makes $330k-per-month from the Falcons ... but he's only paying $6,000-per-month in child support in Georgia.
If Marrero moves to NYC, where there's more favorable child support laws, she could squeeze Roddy for A LOT more cash.
But Marrero's attorneys tell us that's not the case -- she simply wants to move BACK to NYC (where she's lived in the past) because she likes it there. She also insists the move won't occur until AFTER the kids complete their current school year.
We're also told Marrero gave White notice about the move "a while ago" in an effort to be as courteous as possible.
As for White's request -- the judge has yet to rule.
'Basketball Wives' Star
FINALLY HUNTED DOWN
Faces Jail In Deadbeat Dad Case
3/17/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The search is finally over for former NBA player Eric Williams ... because his deadbeat ass was tracked down in Jersey ... and now he could be sent to jail for ducking his baby mama, TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story ... 41-year-old Williams -- who also appeared on "Basketball Wives" -- has been on the hook for $24k in unpaid child support to the mother of his 13-year-old son since back in November, but he blew off a court order to pay up and then went M.I.A.
Well, now ... we've learned a process server finally found the guy in the Garden State and gave him a court summons to appear before a judge in April ... OR ELSE!!!!
FYI -- the "or else" means the judge could order a warrant for his arrest if he doesn't show ... which means he could find himself behind bars.
Choose wisely ...
4 Baby Mamas
Pop Out Reality Show
3/14/2014 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie's 4 baby mamas have another bun in the oven -- a reality show.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Boosie's babes -- Walnita, Tracey, Trivia, and Gerlissa -- have been putting together a pilot episode over the last few months while the rapper's been locked behind bars. Together, they've mothered Boosie's 7 children (aged 4-11).
FYI, Walnita's the baby mama who was arrested back in 2010 for trying to smuggle Boosie drugs in jail.
We're told the reality show will focus on the ladies' unusual friendships that formed as the result of their ... peculiar circumstances. It's unclear if Boosie -- née Torrence Hatch -- will also be participating now that he's free.
According to sources, the producers behind the show are currently shopping it to several networks -- including Oxygen, WE, and Fuse -- but so far, no deal is in place.

Laughing It Up
With K. Fed's Preggo Wife
3/10/2014 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Federline has his very own first wives club -- Britney Spears (wife #1) and Victoria Prince (wife #2) got on like a house on fire Sunday ... laughing and chatting at Britney's son's soccer game.
It was the ideal picture of divorce -- Kevin and Britney (who split in 2006) each took their significant others to their son Jayden's soccer game in L.A. Britney took her current boyfriend David Lucado ... and Kevin took his pregnant wife Victoria.
As we reported, even Kevin and David are pals.
Gotta hand it to Kev and Brit -- they've figured out post-divorce life in a way most people don't.
I'm Finally Taking Down Palin!
3/10/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Call it the Thrilla in Wasilla -- Levi Johnston's new plot is to hit Sarah Palin where it really hurts ... by crushing her husband on Alaska's legendary Iron Dog snowmobile race course.
Johnston tells TMZ he's decided to enter the next running of the world's longest and toughest snowmobile competition ... with the sole intent of burying his ex father-in-law, Todd Palin.
FYI .. Todd's won the thing 4 times, so Levi's odds are slim to frozen.
Levi says it's been a lifelong dream of his to compete in the race, which sounds like a ton of fun: pairs of riders tag team their way over a 36-hour, 2000 mile race through the Alaskan wilderness.
Palin had to drop out this year after just 100 miles due to mechanical problems ... so maybe Levi sees an opening next year.
Of course, it's easy for Levi to talk smack since the race is still 350 days away.
We're guessing this will go about as well as his run for mayor.
Miami Dolphins Player
Stop Attacking My GF's Breast-Feeding Pic
3/5/2014 4:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Miami Dolphins linebacker Philip Wheeler says his girlfriend is being unfairly attacked over a picture showing her breast-feeding their son ... and now he's calling for people to stop the boob hate, asap.
Wheeler's GF is model Ashley Nicole -- who recently posted a photo showing her son latched on to her right breast inside of their home. She included the caption, "Was on the way out the door but then mommy duty called... Everything stops for him! #breastisbest #natureisbeautiful."
Problem is ... not everyone felt the same way -- and social media erupted with people trashing Nicole for posting the pic in the first place.
TMZ Sports spoke to Wheeler ... who says, "I wish everybody would just leave it alone" ... adding, "She's a model. She takes pictures for a living."
Wheeler pointed out that Gisele posted a breast-feeding pic back in December -- and was widely praised for it -- and doesn't understand why his GF isn't getting the same love.
As for the pic, it's still posted on Ashley's Instagram page -- and we're told she has no plans to take it down.
Allen Iverson's Wife
WE BURIED THE HATCHET
... for the Sake of the Kids
3/5/2014 8:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Allen Iverson and his wife have finally made peace -- after years of being at war -- and Tawanna tells TMZ Sports .... she's thrilled the two are finally on the same page so they can co-parent their 5 kids.
Allen and Tawanna have had a very turbulent relationship over the years -- with Tawanna filing for divorce in 2011 ... followed by a very nasty custody battle, allegations of alcohol abuse and claims Allen was trying to screw her out of money.
So, it was a shock when Allen THANKED Tawanna during the Philadelphia 76ers jersey retirement ceremony Saturday night -- giving her props for "helping me grow as a man and taking care of me throughout my career and always being by my side and loving me."
Iverson added, "She'll always be my favorite person in the world."
So, what changed in the past few months??
Tawanna tells us ... the two finally came together and had a long talk about their relationship and their duties as parents.
"We've known each other since we were 16 years old ... and we have 5 kids together. So, we have to do what's best for our kids."
It's unclear if the two will officially get "back together" ... but for now, they're on pretty good terms ... and that's a HUGE deal, considering it was just last year, Tawanna blasted A.I. in court for not living up to his end of the custody arrangement.
"We'll always have a connection with each other," Tawanna says ... noting that she and A.I. are in a "happy" place.

I'm Poor Now
So Lower My Child Support
3/4/2014 5:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Mathew Knowles -- who once made millions of dollars a year as Beyonce's manager -- just got his child support slashed because his income has plummeted in radical fashion.
Knowles asked a judge to reduce the $12,000 monthly child support he pays to baby mama Alexsandra Wright, with whom he has a 3-year-old son.
Knowles -- who made $3 million a year before his daughter fired his ass in 2011 -- now says he pulled in a relative paltry $127K in 2013.
And, Knowles says, even though his income has been slashed, his expenses remain sky high -- $51,000 a month. To make up the shortfall, he's liquidating his assets.
The family court judge apparently validated his financial plight, and reduced his child support to $2,485 a month.
Not great news for Alexsandra, who's been getting $300 a month in food stamps.
