Christopher Darden Denies 'Hooker, Stripper' Emails to Baby Mama

2/28/2017 2:17 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Famed O.J. prosecutor Christopher Darden's unleashed a nasty string of expletives at his baby mama, according to her ... but Darden's calling BS.

Celia Smith -- who has a nasty history with Darden -- says he's been blasting her regularly ... including earlier this month when he fired off a scorching email, calling her a "dirty nasty low budget porn c*** stripper lot lizard prostitute." The email continued, "You suck and f*** d***s for the whole world to see."

The email came from someone other than Darden, but Smith believes he was using a fake email account.  Smith filed docs attempting to get a restraining order against Darden, but the court shot her down -- saying there was no proof he was behind the colorful emails. 

Christopher told us he fully denies sending the emails, and added he and his family are the ones getting harassed. He also says there's a Kardashian factor behind Smith's false claims against him.

As we reported ... Darden got a restraining order against Smith last year.

Matt Stafford Couples Trip to Mexico ... Without Pregnant Wife

Question -- if your wife was pregnant with twins and due next month, would you still go on a couples trip to Mexico without her?

Matthew Stafford just did and his wife couldn't be more supportive.

The Detroit Lions QB is currently in Cabo with Matt Ryan and his wife, Sarah Ryan. The two families are super tight and usually take couples trips together.

Matt's wife, Kelly, didn't make the vacation (we're guessing an international trip so far into the pregnancy isn't the best idea in the world) ... so Matt made the trip without her.

Sarah posted a photo of the gang at dinner. Kelly commented, saying, "Loving everything about this picture except for the fact that I'm not in it and stuck in Michigan."

She added, "Missing all these beautiful people! #jealous."

The twins are reportedly due at the end of March. We're guessing all 4 Staffords will make the trip next year.

Stevie J Pleads Guilty in Child Support Case ... Forced to Pay $1.3 Mil

2/1/2017 3:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0201-stevie-j-tmz-01Stevie J's failure to pay child support just smacked him in the face, and wallet -- the judge is ordering him to pay $1,304,835.86 ... and that's getting off easy.

Stevie was forced to fork over the dough to wipe the slate on back child support owed to a baby mama. He'll also be on probation for 3 years, unless he pays off the $1.3 mil sooner than that.

Stevie made quite the impassioned plea to the judge, saying -- "I accept full responsibility for not fully financially supporting my children when I was younger, but I've stepped up to the plate now and I fully support my children not only financially, but they are the closest individuals to me."

TMZ broke the story ... federal prosecutors wanted Stevie to do hard time after grossly falling behind on his payments.

He could've gotten 6 months behind bars. Now it's just financial pain.

Reggie Bush Alleged Baby Mama In Nasty Divorce ... NFL Star Named In Docs

1/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
Exclusive Details

1120_reggie_bush_monique-exposito_tmz_instagramMore drama in the Reggie Bush alleged baby scandal ... the woman claiming to be his mistress is MARRIED and now her husband wants out. 

As we previously reported, a Miami nightclub waitress named Monique claims Bush (who is also married) sperminated her last year and approached him about child support. The baby is due in February. 

Now, we've learned Monique was married at the time of the alleged tryst -- and her husband is PISSED. He's filed for divorce and it's clear from the docs he's convinced Bush is the father of her unborn kid. 

He's named Bush several times in his divorce papers and is demanding she hand over any documentation proving he could be the father ... such as DNA tests, confidentiality agreements or payments he may have made to her. 

The husband also notes he didn't have sex with his wife around the time of conception -- so there's no way HE could be the daddy.

A rep for Bush had previously called the baby allegations "rumors" and noted he's still "happily married."

We've also learned a lawyer for the husband reached out to Reggie's camp to try work out a private deal to keep the NFL star's name out of the court papers. Obviously, no deal was reached.

Stevie J Joseline's Off the Hook in Defamation Suit

1/18/2017 4:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118-stevie-j-joseline-hernandez-tmzStevie J either had a big change of heart about suing his baby mama, Joseline Hernandez ... or maybe he's just absentminded about court dates.

Stevie's defamation lawsuit against Joseline was dismissed Wednesday by a Georgia judge, because he was a no-show for a scheduled hearing. You'll recall ... Stevie sued Joseline in October after he says she continued to accuse him of molesting his daughter, which he denied.

At the time she was pregnant with their kid, but since she gave birth he's admitted being gaga over the infant, and attempted to squash all beef with Joseline.

Walking away from this lawsuit should help things.

Joseline Hernandez Done with Maternity Leave ... Back to the Club (Work)

1/17/2017 9:07 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Joseline Hernandez is getting back to work after giving birth a little over 2 weeks ago -- and while the club might be an odd job site -- her baby's definitely not going hungry.

The 'Love & Hip Hop' star -- and Stevie J's latest baby mama -- made her first club appearance at Museum Bar in Atlanta over the weekend, and took home $10k just to dance in the middle of 8 bodyguards.

Correction: we're told she also rapped a few bars and drank some champagne -- and even took a pay cut from her usual $15k appearance fee. Still, not a bad night on the job for a brand new mom.

Joseline ate well too ... she demanded shrimp and steak tacos fresh off the grill. Mama ain't playin'.

50 Cent Still Getting Money ... Even from 'Simpsons'

EXCLUSIVE

0112-50-cent-tmz50 Cent's got all his bankruptcy ducks in order -- making regular payments and still making lots of money ... with a little help from "The Simpsons."

The rapper filed his November bank statement as part of his bankruptcy progress report ... showing where the dough's coming and going -- with a total of $113,103.56 going out the door.

The docs also show Fiddy's stream of income ... like a sweet $16.68 residual check from 'Simpsons' for his cameo in a season 16 episode. There's bigger money -- a $33,361.02 music royalty check. However, his G-Unit Records pay was a mere $769.34.

As for what he's paying -- 50's baby mamas -- Daphne Joy and Shaniqua Tompkins -- got $1,267 and $7,497 respectively in child support. He also forked over $5,744.75 for a Bentley, plus $17,917.81 to SunTrust mortgage. You'll recall from the bankruptcy ... he owed SunTrust $4.9 million.

We broke the story, 50 will pay $23 mil over the next 5 years to his creditors.

Randy Moss' Baby Mama Denies Blowing $4 Mil On Drugs 'I've Been Clean For Years'

1/12/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0111-libby-offutt-randy-moss-gettyRandy Moss' baby mama is calling BS on the ex-NFL receiver after he claimed she blew $4 MILLION on drugs ... telling TMZ Sports, "I've been clean for years."

Moss called out his ex on Twitter last month ... claiming the mother of his 5 children refused to get treatment for a drug addiction in order to see her kids.

We spoke to Libby Offutt ... who says Moss' allegations are completely untrue and an attempt to keep her from seeing her children.

"I went to rehab TEN years ago and have been clean ever since," Offutt says. "He’s just saying that to keep the kids. I’d be dead if I spent $4 million on drugs. Where’s his proof?”

Offutt -- who provided us with documentation of recently passed drug tests -- says she believes Moss unleashed the Twitter rant because he was upset she tried to connect with the kids around Xmas. 

“I drove 4 hours on the 26th to take my kids their Christmas presents and his wife wouldn’t let me see the kids or even leave their presents for them."

"He was mad and acted very immature, saying false things that the children are gonna read eventually, subjecting them to more unnecessary emotional stress. And why bash the woman that brought 5 of your children into this world?!"

"He should have respect for me. Not try and publicly harm me.”

Soulja Boy Exploits Chris Brown's Daughter And Baby Mama in Feud

0105-royalty-nia-guzman-02

Well, it just got real ... Chris Brown's daughter, Royalty, is now smack in the middle of his beef with Soulja Boy -- and Soulja's the one who put her there.

SB just posted a pic of 2-year-old Royalty with Floyd Mayweather and TheMoneyTeam tags on it -- making it seem like Chris' little girl wants to see Daddy get his ass whooped. To say, "low blow" ... would be an understatement.

Here's the thing -- Soulja didn't put the Floyd tags on the pic. Chris' baby mama, Nia Guzman, did ... Soulja just reposted it. So, does Nia want Chris to get his ass kicked?

Probably. But we spoke to her, and she says her Royalty pic had nothing to do with Chris and Soulja's celeb boxing match. Nia says she and the kid have been hanging out with Floyd recently ... and "Floyd is investing in Royalty's future."

Hmmm ... 

0105-royalty-tmt-ring-instagram-02

As you can imagine, Chris is PISSED off and making it very clear to Soulja ... leave my daughter out of this -- but with much more colorful language.

Stevie J I Want a Truce with Joseline For Our Baby's Sake

1/5/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The greatest miracle of Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez having a baby girl last week could be a full peace treaty between them ... and he says they're both committed to making it happen.

We got Stevie out in Atlanta talking about how the newborn, Bonnie Bella, is changing his life, and the BIG shocker -- he shouts out Joseline for being a "great mom."

This from the guy who was demanding drug and psychological testing for Joseline just a few weeks ago. If this holds up, Baby Bonnie should be up for the Nobel Peace Prize.

But, we'll see.
