Karrueche Tran

If I Bump Into Chris' Baby Mama in L.A. ...

3/26/2015 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend could be bumping into Chris Brown's baby mama real soon -- and Karrueche Tran wants us to believe she'd be totally cool with it.

We broke the news to Karrueche Wednesday night ... outside BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood ... that Chris wants to move Nia Guzman out to L.A. so he can be closer to baby Royalty.

L.A. is big, but not that big when you run in the same celeb circles -- so, what happens if KT runs into Nia at the club? Watch Karrueche's answer -- her mouth's saying one thing, but her body doesn't seem to agree.

Bonus: Karrueche's take on tell-all books (like Lil Wayne's) and whether she'll write one. Listen up, CB.

I Want My Baby Mama Close

So I Can Be a Good Dad

3/25/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown Baby Mama A lot of rappers run for the hills when they knock up some random chick, but Chris Brown wants to move that random chick to the hills ... the Hollywood Hills, so he can be close to his little girl.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris got Nia Guzman, a 31-year-old Houston woman, pregnant and now he's the proud dad of 9-month-old Royalty. We know Chris has spent time with the baby since finding out he's the father, but it's difficult because Royalty is 1372 air miles away from Chris' L.A. home.

Sources connected with Chris tell us ... he's asked Nia to move to L.A. with their daughter and he'll foot the bill for housing. He's not romantically involved with Nia, but we're told he genuinely wants a meaningful relationship with Royalty. He's saying he'd like to see her every day.

Chris is in "negotiations" with Nia over support. He's paying her more than he's required to under the law, but he got pissed off when she started talking about their relationship and vowed to go to court where a judge would reduce the child support he's informally paying.

Our sources say Chris has told Nia, if she moves to L.A. he won't pull the trigger on a child support court case and she'll continue getting the premium amount, in addition to a place to live.

Nia hasn't decided, but it sounds like a good deal.

Chris Brown

Nia's Royal Baby Shower

3/8/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-nia-guzman-baby-shower-gallery-launch-01Chris Brown's baby mama was treated like royalty at her baby shower ... and nothing says royalty like little Gucci boots and tiny Converse.  

We're told 40 friends and family of the former Texas model showered her with baby gifts last March at a Houston apartment banquet, hailing Royalty's imminent arrival.

The guest list included a guy named Brazil, whom she believed was Royalty's papa. He was zip-lipped during the entire soiree.

After gobbling down a crown topped cake, the ladies tested their mommy skills in a diaper changing contest. The winner was toasted with wine from baby bottles. Nia abstained ... something she clearly didn't do with Chris.

Baby Mama's Ex-Husband Warns ...

Watch Your Temper, Or Else!

3/7/2015 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown's history of having a temper could bite him in the ass ... because his baby mama's ex-husband is putting the singer on notice -- watch your temper around my family, or we've got a problem.

TMZ spoke with Terry Amey -- who says he was married to Nia from 2003 - 2014 -- and they have a 13 year-old daughter together ... which is why he's letting Chris know he means business.

Terry says he and Nia were separated when she got knocked up ... but since Avery knew it wasn't his kid, he finally filed for divorce. He claims he had no idea the baby belonged to C.B.

Amey tells us he's aware of Chris' notorious temper and says he better not lose it around Nia and the kids, or there will be repercussions. He was not more specific about what that means, but it's clearly a threat.

Chris Brown Child Support

Chris Brown is headed for family court, where his baby mama is now in danger of raking in a lot less in child support because of her big mouth.

Sources connected with Brown tell TMZ ... the singer didn't know he was the father of 9-month-old Royalty until last month, when Nia Guzman dropped the news. We're told Chris quickly made a deal with her where he would pay monthly child support.  

Our sources say Chris is forking out substantially more than he'd be required to pay if a judge ordered formal child support. There's a scale on how much a parent pays, based largely on income. We're told Chris upped that amount and in return demanded that she keep her lips sealed.

We know Chris now believes Nia has been leaking stories and talking about their relationship. As a result, our sources say his lawyers are now preparing legal docs, in which he will ask a judge for an order requiring him to pay child support. It sounds strange, but he'll pay less than he does now.

Wanted a Baby for Years ...

With Karrueche!

3/6/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305_chris_brown_karrueche-tran_baby_tmz_composite_2Chris Brown's been jonesin' to be a daddy for a long time, and tried to get Karrueche Tran to be the baby mama -- but before there was a bun in the oven, she wanted a ring on her hand.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Chris and Karrueche had the baby talk frequently for at least the last 2 years -- and she was down to have a tiny CB ... IF he would make her an honest woman.

We're told KT feels strongly about marriage before kids, and stood her ground with Chris. Although he stepped up with a couple of diamonds last Christmas -- he couldn't close the deal ... since they weren't engagement rings. 

Karrueche was also worried about derailing her budding acting career.

Even though she wasn't ready yet ...we're told Karrueche still thought she and Chris would have kids together in the future. As one source put it, she's "devastated he did this" with a side chick.

Like the lady said ... "One can only take so much."

My Baby is Royalty!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0304-chris-brown-fun-art-getty-tmz-01Chris Brown's baby girl answers to Royalty!

We've learned Nia named the kid Royalty. What we don't know ... whether she consulted Chris before inking the birth certificate.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris and Nia got it on summer of 2013 and she gave birth 9 months ago. As we reported, Karrueche was blindsided ... she had no idea until minutes before TMZ posted the story Tuesday afternoon.

As for Chris' involvement ... we're told he calls Nia regularly and now says he wants to openly participate in raising the baby. Nia and Royalty live in Texas, and Chris says he'll gladly fly there regularly to parent her.

Karrueche Tran

Chris Dropped Baby Bomb On Me ...

I Had No Clue

EXCLUSIVE

0303_chris_brown_karrueche_TMZ-2

Karrueche Tran was in the dark ... blindsided by Chris Brown's baby news just moments before TMZ broke the story. 

We're told Tran had absolutely no idea her boyfriend was a daddy -- much less a daddy with a baby mama with whom SHE partied.  

0304-nia-karrueche-INSTAGRAM-01Our sources say Karrueche and Brown had a blowout fight a week ago and weren't speaking, but he tried calling her after the story broke ... she did not pick up.  

DNA tests performed in the last week show conclusively ... Brown is the father of a 9-month-old baby with a former model named Nia. We're told he and Nia aren't romantic but they get along fine, and Chris has made some sort of financial arrangement with her.  

As for Karrueche ... we're told she's actually relieved, because it now gives her a clean, permanent out. 

Oh, baby.

Baby Mama Partied with Karrueche!

Exclusive Details

0306-karrueche-nia-instagramChris Brown had his cake and banged it too -- because months before he knocked up his baby mama ... he was partying with her AND Karrueche Tran at the same time.

Karrueche, who was Chris' gf at the time, actually had her arm around Nia in a photo they took -- with Christina Milian too -- during a Las Vegas party back in May 2013. Chris was also there.

0304-SUB-nia-karruche-chris-instagram-01Nia got pregnant with Chris' baby later that summer. We're guessing the ladies won't be having a reunion anytime soon.

We've also learned Nia was very popular on the video vixen scene ... appearing in several music videos, including a half-naked role in Phill Wade's "Dreams of You" video.

His Baby's Got ...

A Model Mother

0304_chris_brown_baby_mama_nia_amey_launch_2If nothing else ... Chris Brown was swimming in the right end of the gene pool when he knocked up his baby mama -- as evidenced by these pics.

As we told you ... the mother's name is Nia -- a 31-year-old from Texas who used to do some modeling, and she also appeared in music videos. We're guessing that's how she first hooked up with Chris years ago.

Check out the photo gallery of her from back in the day. Chris' baby is blessed.

I'm a Father!

Chris 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.

Scooter Braun's Kid

Little JB

2/12/2015 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-scooter-braun-launch-02Scooter Braun paid homage to Justin Bieber by giving his brand new kid the Biebs' initials.

TMZ has obtained the birth certificate for Jagger Joseph Braun … it can't be a coincidence that the kid's initials are JB and how could it be that Jagger is anything but Mick?  In fact, the inspiration was indeed Mr. Rolling Stone himself.

The birth certificate doesn’t give the height and weight, but we are told that the baby is doing great and so is Scooter’s very hot wife, Yael Cohen.

As we reported Justin was one of the first people to visit the kid at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was born.

Childbirth Is Tougher Than Any Fighter

'Hayden Is a Hero'

EXCLUSIVE

Wladimirm-Klitschko_launch_v3Tyson ... Ali ... Rocky -- they've all got NOTHING on Hayden Panettiere ... or any other woman who's ever had to give birth ... so says Hayden's boxing superstar baby daddy Wladimir Klitschko.

Wlad says Hayden's pain tolerance must be through the roof in order for her to have pushed out their giant baby 2 months ago ... saying he now believes women are WAY tougher than any boxer. 

"Every woman is a hero."

Hayden might be more of a hero than most ... considering their daughter Kaya was 7 lbs., 14 oz. and damn near 2 feet tall. Hayden's only 5 feet tall.
