Charlie Sheen vows to hit Denise Richards where it really hurts -- in the child support department, because he says he's going to court to get a judge to slash the amount she gets.
Charlie is telling friends ... a judge has NEVER signed off on his current child support agreement with Denise -- it was all agreed to privately.
Denise currently gets $55,000 a month in support for their 2 kids. He's enraged that he's been so generous, and not just with child support. Charlie says he shelled out $9 million for the home he bought for her -- specifically so their 2 girls could be close to him.
So Charlie is telling his buddies ... Denise is epically ungrateful because he says she's denying him the right to have XMAS morning with the girls. He says she's actually taken away the girls' phones so they can't call him.
So Charlie's going to court. Not only does he want child support reduced, he wants the judge to establish his iron-clad right to see his kids on specific holidays.
I DID Pay Child Support

R. Kelly is not a child support dodging jerk ... so says R. Kelly AND his ex-wife Andrea Kelly -- and now the company who put him on blast for allegedly falling behind is backtracking.
Earlier today, The Custodial Support Foundation put out a press release saying "Hollywood Exes" star Andrea Kelly hired them to call out R. Kelly for falling behind on his child support -- but the singer's rep says their claim is BS ... and he's all paid up
Andrea's lawyer backs him up too ... telling TMZ his client says Kelly is up to date on his payments.
A rep for the C.S.F. tells us they're issuing a retraction to their story.
When a man pays up.
I Make $62,000 a Month!!!
12/13/2013 11:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jack White rakes in serious cash every month -- roughly $62,000 -- but according to his divorce agreement, he's only paying $3,200 in monthly child support.
Jack's divorce from ex-wife Karen Elson was just finalized, and in the docs, each spouse declares his or her monthly income. Karen (who is also a singer) says hers is $33,971. Not a bad living.
But the strange part -- Karen's now the primary residential parent for their two kids (a 6-year-old and 7-year-old) and Jack has agreed to pay only $3,200 a month in child support, which feels low when you think about how much he makes.
Then again, Jack also gets the kids for a huge chunk of the year -- 150 days -- so the low number makes a little more sense.
As for the rest of their divorce agreement, Jack did pretty well -- he gets to keep the rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, the Raconteurs, The Dead Weather, and his record label. Karen gets to keep the rights to hers.
Jack and Karen were married in 2005 in a canoe in the middle of the Amazon river in Brazil, only to separate in 2011. Karen filed for divorce in 2012. The split was pretty bitter.

12/11/2013 1:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Toya Wright says her stint in jail was one of the worst experiences of her entire life ... claiming she's emotionally scarred ... even though she spent less than 24 hours behind bars.
As we previously reported, Wright -- Lil Wayne's ex-wfe/baby mama -- was locked up in Georgia yesterday after cops discovered a warrant out for her arrest during a routine traffic stop.
Toya tells us the whole thing stemmed from a speeding ticket that "slipped through the cracks."
But Toya, who appeared on the reality show "Tiny and Toya" -- is adamant she will never go back to jail because she's so traumatized by the things she saw on the inside.
Toya wouldn't get into specifics ... but says her fellow inmates were treated "inhumanely."
"I wouldn't wish jail time for my worst enemy," Toya says ... adding, "What I witnessed was so bad that I don't even want to leave the house right now."
Toya says she's even considering turning the experience into a positive by working as an "advocate of better treatment for prisoners."
As for the speeding ticket, Toya says, "Please believe I'm working on lightening up my lead foot."

Beyonce's father is hitting back against accusations he's a deadbeat dad ... he claims he paid what he owes in child support ... it's just a paperwork screw up.
TMZ broke the story ... Mathew Knowles' baby mama Alexsandra Wright says he's behind on 2 months ... to the tune of $24K.
According to sources familiar with the situation, a few of the payments were only slightly late, but past the deadline for being credited, so it appeared Mathew didn't fork over what he owed.
Here's the problem... Mathew is now behind for December -- payment was due on the 1st. We're told he plans to pay up before it officially becomes delinquent.
Think of it as paying your rent, only with a kid.
We've reached out to Wright but haven't heard back.
Lil Wayne's Baby Mama ARRESTED
12/11/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Wayne's baby mama/ex-wife Toya Wright was arrested Tuesday in Georgia ... TMZ has learned.
The details surrounding the arrest are sketchy at best -- with one law enforcement official telling us Wright was pulled over in College Park, GA yesterday ... and during the stop, the cop noticed a warrant out for her arrest.
We're told ... the warrant was issued after Wright failed to appear at a recent court date -- though it's unclear why she was supposed to be in court to begin with.
Toya was hauled to a nearby station, where she was booked and posed for an "Are you frickin' serious?" mug shot.
Toya, who starred in the reality show "Tiny and Toya," was eventually released from jail Wednesday morning at 1:30 AM on a $290 bond.
The story was first published by MediaTakeOut.

... Baby Mama Alleges

Beyonce's father is a DEADBEAT DAD ... at least according to the mother of his 3-year-old son who claims Mathew Knowles has stiffed her out of $24k in child support, TMZ has learned.
According to California State records obtained by TMZ, Mathew missed TWO of the $12k monthly payments he's been ordered to pay to Alexsandra Wright.
Sources close to Wright says she's in a financial bind and needs the cash asap -- we're told she's even had to pull her son from school because she can't afford to pay for it.
As we've reported ... the legal battles between Knowles and Wright have been ugly. She claims Knowles sent a threatening email to her in 2011 ... warning "there's a price to pay" for hurting his family.
We reached out to Mathew for comment -- so far, no word back.

Bloodied Ex-BF in Brutal Fist Fight

Pauly D better learn to duck and cover ... 'cause his baby mama had no qualms about beating the crap out of another guy who knocked her up ... according to police records obtained by TMZ.
We've learned ... Amanda Markert was arrested in July 2009 for opening a can of whoopass on her first baby daddy -- Lance Gerbino -- leaving him with bloody lips, a nasty gash above his eye and injuries inside his mouth.
Gerbino tells TMZ ... Amanda had been out drinking with friends ... and was pissed because she had to come home to help take care of their infant son.
He claims Markert just started "going crazy" ... wailing on his face with her fists while she was holding their son. Gerbino felt the baby was in danger ... and that's why he called police.
According to police records, Markert turned herself in to cops --booked under her legal name, Amareda Markert -- but the assault charge was eventually dismissed after she completed an anger management course.
As we've reported, Markert and Pauly D are involved in an ugly custody fight over their 6-month old daughter, Amabella ... and they've both been very clear about how much they hate each other.
We contacted Amanda for comment on the domestic violence case ... she hung up on us.
Alleged Baby Mama Sues
For 'Good Fortune' Child Support
11/26/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A woman claiming to have been impregnated by Flo Rida is suing for child support -- but not just any child support ... she knows she hit the jackpot, and now she wants "good fortune" support -- which means she banged a rich person.
Glamor model and video vixen Natasha Georgette Williams -- who says she hasn't given birth yet -- and her attorney Ray Rafool, filed the legal docs in Miami ... asking for a bunch of Flo's money for things like pre-natal assistance and other birth-related expenses.
She also wants a child support order to cover medical insurance, daycare, private school expenses, summer camp, etc.
But the hilarious part -- she also asks for "good fortune" child support ... which is a special kind of child support in Florida for rich people's kids. Basically, she's asking for more child support than she actually needs ... just because Flo's rich. You can't make this up.
We called Flo's people for comment. So far, no word back ... but it's worth noting paternity of the child still hasn't officially been established.
In other news, Natasha's really hot.
Another Day, Another Baby
11/25/2013 3:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chief Keef just learned he's a daddy ... again ... bad news for him because he now owes another big chunk of change for child support ... TMZ has learned.
Keef's attorney says the rapper admitted he's the father of a 10-month old child ... after being confronted with some pretty conclusive evidence -- his own DNA.
According to the lawyer ... Erica Early went to court in Chicago to establish paternity. The DNA test shows there's a 99.9% chance Keef is the papa.
The 18-year-old rapper is still in court-ordered rehab in California for his weed smoking ... so he wasn't in court when the judge ordered him to pay Early $2,500 a month in child support ... plus, another $25K lump sum payment for the previous 10 months.
But good luck collecting ... Keef owes thousands of dollars in back child support in ANOTHER paternity case ... and he's not coughing it up willingly.
