Adrian Peterson

Alleged Baby Mama Miscarries

... But Still Wants Cash

9/2/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0901_Adrian-Peterson_TMZSad news for the woman who claimed she was pregnant with Adrian Peterson's 9th kid -- TMZ Sports has learned she had a miscarriage ... but she's still gunning for AP's cash. 

As we previously reported, the woman -- a massage therapist -- was asking for roughly $2 MILLION from the NFL star to cover 18 years of child support, education, medical expenses, etc. 

But now, people directly involved in the situation tell us ... the woman lost the baby over the weekend. 

The woman, however, claims she saved the "fetal tissue" and wants to get a DNA test because she still wants Peterson to foot the bill for things like medical expenses involved with the pregnancy and the miscarriage. She also wants to be paid for the "pain and suffering" she's experienced. 

Peterson's lawyers had already rejected the woman's first proposal for a settlement -- but had said they would consider a reasonable number, if a DNA test proved the child was his. 

We called Peterson's attorney to find out how they plan to handle the situation under the new circumstances -- but we haven't heard back. 

Chris Brown

My Baby Mama's Got Terrible Judgment

In Boyfriends

9/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-chris-brown-king-ba-TMZ-Instagram-01Chris Brown is chomping at the bit to face his baby mama in custody court ... and the biggest weapon in his arsenal is the woman's boyfriend. 

Chris and Nia Guzman will fight it out in 2 weeks. She wants full custody of 1-year-old Royalty and visitation for Chris, BUT only if it's monitored. She says he's a bad guy who hangs with criminals and smokes weed. Chris wants joint custody. 

But we're told Chris thinks her argument will boomerang right back in her face, because her boyfriend, King Ba -- the guy who lived with her and is even named on Royalty's birth certificate -- is a wanted man ... on the run for felony forgery

We're told Chris is eager to tell the judge Nia has terrible judgment ... hooking up with a con man.

As we first reported, Chris believes Nia's real motivation has nothing to do with custody ... she wants to squeeze more child support out of him. He's currently paying $2,500. She wants $15k.

As for Nia, her rep tells us, she's no longer with King Ba.

A Wanted Man!!

breaking news

0828-king-ba-instagram-01Chris Brown is blasting his baby mama for being a hypocrite -- while she claims it's not safe for Royalty to be around Chris ... her BF, and Royalty's wannabe stepdad, is wanted for forgery.

Chris started ripping Nia Guzman after a Houston TV station reported cops are searching for King Ba. He's accused of forging more than $5,000 worth of U.S. Treasury checks, and police released bank surveillance footage of him.

Chris immediately responded to the news ... saying on Instagram, "Funny how I work a legit job and love my daughter to the fullest and I'm in her life. Well, if it ain't the pot calling the kettle black."

Nia tried to distance herself from King Ba ... telling Chris that she's single and has moved away from Houston.

TMZ broke the story ... Nia wants to limit Chris to supervised visits with Royalty because she thinks he's irresponsible. But now Chris feels like he's got high ground in this battle. As he told Nia, "#goddontlikeugly"

Chief Keef

New Kid IS My Son, Or Is NOT My Son

... I Can't Decide

8/26/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-chief-keef-baby-mama-main-tmzChief Keef's got a brand new baby mama situation -- she says she just had his son ... his lawyer says take a number, lady ... and Keef can't decide whether to celebrate.  

According to docs filed in Kentucky ... a woman named Lauren wants CK to pay child support for her 2-month-old baby boy, and lists him as the daddy.  

Sources close to the situation tell us they met last year at one of his KY shows, then he flew her to Chicago a few times -- and yada, yada, yada ... baby! 

Keef actually posted a photo of the boy Monday with the caption, "The White Sosa" (referring to his nickname) and then deleted it after an hour. Our sources say Lauren sent CK the pic, and he hasn't met the kid yet. In the docs, Lauren says she hasn't seen Keef since conception.

Keef's lawyer says Lauren's claims are untrue, and the rapper's constantly targeted by women looking for easy paydays.

Apparently the lawyer forgot about this story ... and this one.

0727-kourtney-kardashian-akmgsiKourtney Kardashian displayed an unusual amount of cleavage (for her) as she and the rest of the Kardashian clan went out for lunch after catching a show Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. 

Kourt is not one for such a revealing look, normally that's Kim ... but she was the conservative one for a change.

Nothing says "open for business" like an open blouse.

Ex 'Love & Hip Hop' Star

Not Just a Rumor ...

I'm Pregnant and Benzino's the Dad!

7/7/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706-benzino-althea-tmz-01Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Althea Eaton and Benzino are expecting their first child together -- and this time they mean it.

Sources close to the fiery couple tell TMZ, Althea’s 5 months deep, and expecting a baby boy in November.

Pregnancy rumblings first surfaced in March, but only because Althea blasted the news out on social media. The confusion started when she and Benzino deleted the pregnancy announcement ... leaving fans to wonder if something went wrong.

They've been mum on the topic ever since.

It's a big step for the couple. Their tumultuous relationship was well documented on 'LHHA' until they were kicked off the show after season 3 for the now infamous reunion show brawl and death threats against co-stars. 

Diaper duty should be fun ... for the hot-tempered duo.

Dr. Drew

Dwight Howard's Baby Mama Has a Point

6/15/2015 4:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard's baby mama wasn't talking out of her ass with that whole "celeb kids have psychological baggage" argument ... this according to an expert in the field, Dr. Drew

We broke the story ... a woman named Tiffany is demanding more child support from the NBA star -- and part of her argument is that her child will likely need expensive therapy sessions later on to "deal with the unique issues involved in being the child of a celebrity."

So, we asked Dr. Drew if there was any weight to her argument ... and he explained why it's "not totally unreasonable."

Drew acknowledged there is some added stress that goes along with being the child of a famous person ... but says it's not really a problem that money can cure. 

Drew does have some advice for the NBA star ... and this time, it's free of charge.

EXCLUSIVE

David Faustino and his pregnant GF Lindsay Bronson revealed the name of their baby girl ... and it's both traditional and really nice.

They were strolling along a street in L.A., coming out of Swingers Diner, when the Bud Bundy actor explained why his little girl won't be watching "Married with Children."

The Bundys are not exactly the gold standard of parenting, but then again the little girl would have some bragging rights at school ... Bud was kind of awesome.

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Sues

You Screwed Me Out of a Fortune!!

6/10/2015 11:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0610-dwight-howard-TMZ-01$10,000 per month is WAYYY TOO LOW for child support when it comes to Dwight Howard ... this according to one of his baby mamas who says Dwight has been screwing her out of serious dough and now she wants to collect.  

The Houston Rockets star is being sued in Florida ... by a woman who claims she and Dwight struck a private deal back in 2013 that required him to fork over $10k per month in child support.  

But according to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman (Tiffany) says Howard hasn't lived up to his end of the bargain ... and since January, has only paid her HALF of what he owes.  

Tiffany says the financial slight has forced her to reconsider their arrangement ... and since he makes more than $27 MILLION per year in salary and endorsements, she wants a bigger slice of the pie.  

The kid is currently 4 years old ... and Tiffany says she needs the cash to put the child in expensive private schools, pay for extracurricular activities and fund social activities like birthday parties and sleepovers that will help the kid make friends.  

Tiffany also says ... since the child has a famous father, she'll need extra cash for therapy to "deal with the unique issues involved in being the child of a celebrity." 

We reached out to Dwight's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.  

Kim & Kanye

Not Heading South

... With New Baby Name

6/8/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-kanye-kim-baby-names-getty-tmzKim Kardashian and Kanye West are ditching the compass when it comes to naming baby #2 ... we've learned there will be no sequel to North West

Sources close to the couple tell us there’s NO CHANCE their new bundle will be inspired by direction, like their firstborn. Everyone's been speculating they'd go with something like South, East or even Easton -- but we're told there's simply no direction in play.  

The main reason, we're told ... is they want the name to be strong. With North, there was a power element because it’s always on top, or pointing up. The other 3 just don't have that swagger. 

Our sources say right now they're leaning toward something more traditional ... with a family-related influence. Think less 'K' name ... and more likely something connected to Kim or Kanye's late parents, we're told. 

Kim's due in December, so they’ve got time to sort it out. Perhaps they'll even go seasonal ... Winter West has a nice ring to it, but no word on the sex yet.

Calls in a Pro to ...

Avoid Pregnancy Health Risk

6/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0605-kim-k-healthy-pregancy-Fun-art-01Kim Kardashian is doing everything she can to avoid a serious complication with her second pregnancy ... including bringing in someone to keep her on a strict diet.

We're told Kim suffered from a high-blood pressure disorder called preeclampsia when North was in the oven. Only 5-8% of pregnant women get it, but doctors say its likely to reoccur ... so, Kim's taking action. 

Our Kardashian sources tell us she hired a nutritionist to devise a weekly meal plan with two key rules – lots of water and a low sodium intake. One big change -- KK started each day of her first pregnancy with a donut, but this time she’s reaching for protein shakes.  

Kim's hoping to avoid symptoms like swelling, headaches and changes in vision ... by sticking to the plan.

Sounds like Kanye might be off the hook for those late night craving runs.

Baby Mama Nixed

Fab Disney World Birthday for Royalty

EXCLUSIVE

0529-chris-brown-royalty-birthday-disney-world-GETTY-01

Chris Brown offered to fly his daughter Royalty and the kid's mom to the happiest place for her first birthday, but his baby mama shut down the offer.

Brown's rep tells TMZ,  it's true he was a no show for Royalty's 1st birthday, but it's because he was shooting a music video in Miami. The rep says, "Like any working parent, Chris is doing his best to prioritize the needs of his daughter." 

But Chris had a plan ... flying "the entire family" to Disney World. It's unclear if that included King Ba, Nia Guzman's BF who has been trying to assume the role of Dad. But Chris insists Nia turned him down flat.

Nia's pissed that Chris didn't show for the shindig at Chuck E. Cheese's in Houston, but Chris says he'll throw a special party for Royalty the next time he sees her.

Celebrities ... they're just like us.

Chris Brown

Baby Mama Says

He Cheaped Out on Royalty's Birthday

5/28/2015 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chris Brown's daughter Royalty got a phone call from her dad on her first birthday ... but a source close to his baby mama says that's it.

Sources close to Royalty's mom, Nia Guzman, tell TMZ ... Brown didn't show up for the 1-year-old's birthday, didn't send a gift and didn't contribute to the cost of the Chuck E. Cheese's shindig. Nia says her boyfriend, King Ba, paid for the whole thing.

Ba -- who's listed on the birth certificate as Royalty's birth father -- seemed to take pleasure in Chris' absence and captioned one pic of Royalty by writing, "Wouldn't Miss This Day For Anything In This World."

Chris' people say he was in Miami shooting a music video with Pit Bull, and tried Facetiming with his daughter but Nia's phone was acting wonky.
