As for the eye candy ... Miss California 2013 Mabelynn Capeluj, Carls Jr.'s "3-Way Bacon" girl Elena Belle as well as models Tika Camaj and Monica Sims will all be there.

The shower is the day before his Patriots play in Buffalo, so there's no chance of a surprise appearance. Ella is due in November.

EXCLUSIVE

0922-chris-brown-royalty-nia-guzman-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Brown's baby mama is fed up with all the drama in his life, so much so ... she dimed him out to DCFS.

Sources close to Nia Guzman tell TMZ ... she filed the complaint with DCFS some time after Chris was arrested for allegedly pulling a gun on Baylee Curran -- and that's exactly why child services went to Chris' house Thursday.

We're told Nia's worried about 2-year-old Royalty's safety -- although she was NOT in the house during the alleged gun incident. Our sources say Nia thinks he's a good dad on his own, but he continues to hang with a bad crowd.

Since Chris' arrest, all of his visits with Royalty must be supervised by his mother ... at least until the case is settled. 

We're told Nia isn't fighting to reduce Chris' custody at this point, but she agrees monitored visits are best for now.

His attorney said he was unaware of the case and didn't realize he was supposed to be in court.update-grey-gray-barAn arrest warrant has been issued for NFL star Josh Gordon, 'cause the 25-year-old blew off a judge several times in a paternity case.

EXCLUSIVE

0913-ludacris-tamika-fuller-tmz-instagramLudacris is beyond pissed at his baby mama, Tamika Fuller ... accusing her of altering photos of their daughter to make him look like an unfit father.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Tamika claims she picked up their 2-year-old daughter from daycare in May after she was in Luda's care -- he has primary custody -- and noticed "bruises and abrasions" on her face.

Tamika says she took their daughter to a hospital for emergency care, and a social worker there recommended DFCS get involved. In docs, she says DFCS wanted to keep Luda away from the girl.

Ludacris filed his own docs though, saying Tamika made up the whole story ... and even digitally edited photos of the alleged injuries and submitted them to the court. He adds, DFCS records will back that up.

Tamika says the whole case has been squashed -- their daughter is back in Luda's care -- but she insists he used his wealth and fame to intimidate DFCS investigators.

Antonio Cromartie New Colts Cash Well Spent ... Pays Off Back Child Support

8/23/2016 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-antonio-cromartie-tmz-01update_graphic_red_barCromartie's rep says the only reason he didn't pay the support is because he was fighting Pierre over custody. The rep claims she had ongoing legal issues, and says Cro felt Alonzo wasn't safe with her. update_grey_gray_barAntonio Cromartie took his $3 million deal from the Coltsand immediately used it to settle a child support dispute with a baby mama ... and avoided a possible arrest in the process.

Cromartie was delinquent on child support payments to Rosemita Pierre -- the mother of Alonzo, his oldest child ... aka #1 of 13. According to docs, AC was ordered to pay her $4,000 per month, starting in January 2016 but failed to do so.

He was due in a Florida court last week to either pay up or explain why he couldn't -- but Cro was a no-show. Then the cavalry arrived in the form of the Colts one-year contract ... which he signed Monday. 

We're told Cromartie made a payment Tuesday afternoon. It's unclear how much he forked over, but it was enough for the judge to withdraw a warrant that had been issued earlier in the day.

Crisis averted. 

Mel Gibson I'm Paying Oksana More ... to Get Outta Dodge

8/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-mel-gibson-Oksana-TMZ-02Mel Gibson just agreed to pay baby mama Oksana Grigorieva 50% more than she was getting last month, but the trade-off is that she has to skedaddle from his home.

We've learned Mel and Oksana have been squabbling over child support for 6-year-old Lucia. Oksana was pulling in $20k a month but wanted a small increase -- to $100k a month!

We're told they went back and forth and struck a deal. Mel is now paying Oksana a skosh under $30k a month. But in return Oksana agreed to vacate Mel's $2.4 million rental home in Sherman Oaks. We're told she's rented a pad in Malibu.

It's pretty amazing. TMZ broke the story, Mel was willing to pay Oksana $15 MILLION to settle their child support and alleged domestic violence cases -- provided she keeps those incendiary, racist tapes secret. After signing the agreement, Oksana disavowed it and went for more.

She ended up with a $250,00 settlement.

And file this under glass half full ... Oksana had 50 lawyers in her epic battle with Mel, so her latest -- Brian Kramer -- settled and got her a 50% increase, which is better than the scores of lawyers did before him.

Chris Brown Destroys Baby Mama in Custody Court

EXCLUSIVE

0812-chris-brown-nia-guzman-Instagra-Facebook-01Chris Brown annihilated his baby mama in custody court ... she lost so bad the judge ordered her to pay Chris back for the attorney fees he fronted her.

Sources connected to Chris tell us, Nia Guzman struck out on every single request regarding custody of 2-year-old Royalty. Nia wanted full custody -- DENIED. She wanted Chris to have monitored visitation -- DENIED. She wanted to deny Chris' mom the right to see the kid -- DENIED. She wanted Chris to submit to drug tests -- DENIED.

The judge maintained the status quo -- joint custody. Chris continues to get Royalty 12 days a month.

When Nia filed her legal docs asking for a change in custody the judge ordered Chris to pay her $20k so she could afford a lawyer. But she lost so hard, the judge said Nia wasn't entitled to the money and gave Chris a credit.

There was supposed to be a separate hearing on child support. Nia is currently getting $2,500 a month from Chris but she wanted nearly $16k. Nia has now dismissed her support petition.

Legal home run, Chris.

Mel Gibson Baby Mama Oksana Grigorieva Loose Lips Cost Her a Bundle

8/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0810-mel-gibson-oksana-tmzMel Gibson's baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, just got word from a California appeals court ... she made one of the worst business decisions in the history of business ... because they just ruled she's only entitled to 1/60 of what she could have gotten from him had she just shut her trap.

The California Court of Appeals just dropped the hammer, saying Oksana screwed herself when she went on Howard Stern in 2013 and claimed domestic abuse at the hands of Gibson. The actor was on the hook for $750,000 -- a settlement he had struck with her -- but had only shelled out $250,000.

The agreement said she would forfeit the balance if she blabbed about her allegations, and the court said that's exactly what she did when she went on Stern. So, Mel does not have to pay the $500k balance.

Mind you ... Mel had agreed to pay Oksana $15 million if she kept those horrible audiotapes secret, but she changed her mind thinking she could get even more and disavowed the deal. Instead of $15 mil, she eventually struck a deal for $750k ... and that has now been whittled down to $250k.

Maybe she's just bad at math.
