Chris Brown

Files Paternity Docs

I've Had It With My Baby Mama!

7/1/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown has had it with baby mama Nia Guzman's child support and custody demands, so he's asking a judge to lay down the law once and for all.

Chris and Nia have been at war over 1-year-old Royalty. She's demanding $15k a month in child support, way more than Chris says is fair. 

We've learned Chris just filed legal docs in Houston to establish paternity. That will give him the right to fight Nia over support and custody.  

Chis has been paying Nia what he believes is a fair amount -- she claims he's been paying $2,500 a month. He wants a judge to set the figure, which he's confident will be closer to his number than hers.

Chris also wants a judge to establish clear custody guidelines. He says Nia has been denying him the right to see his daughter, so he wants a judge to set her straight. 

Brandi Glanville

I'm Cash-Strapped After Getting Fired

Brandi Glanville is trying to put on a brave face after getting the ax on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but she made it clear to our photog ... she's now in a financial pickle. 

Brandi confirms what we already told you ... she'll be making occasional appearances, but her paychecks will be slashed and now she has to figure out how to make ends meet.

And you gotta see the video ... she says 2 housewives secretly hate each other, and she names names. 

Sherri Shepherd

Settles Divorce

Rolls Over on Child Support, Sorta

7/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630_sherri_shepherd_lamar_sally_tmzSherri Shepherd's nasty divorce and custody battle is finally over ... and stunningly, she has agreed to pay child support for the kid she disavowed from birth ... but with a catch.

Our sources say, Sherri and estranged hubby Lamar Sally have struck a settlement agreement in which the ex-'View' co-host will pay $4,100 a month in child support. The monthly obligation increases to $4,600 when the kid turns 13.  

Remember, Sherri fought Lamar tooth and nail in court, claiming he defrauded her into getting a surrogate to carry a baby for the purpose of getting child support.

Now for the catch. According to the settlement agreement, Sherri is allowed to pursue her fraud claim and if the appeals court rules in her favor, her child support obligations will disappear. 

And there's a Sofia Vergara twist ... the couple has embryos in storage and Sherri wants them destroyed. Lamar is undecided. According to the settlement, if Lamar chooses to bring the embryos to term, Sherri will not have to pay child support.

Sherri's not walking away completely empty-handed ... she'll get to hold onto the rights to her show, "Funny Mothers" which is currently in development.

Lock Hands

As Bobbi Kristina Slips Away

6/30/2015 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Houston and Brown families came together again Monday as they prepare for the death of Bobbi Kristina.

Pat Houston left the Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta, hand-in-hand with Tina Brown, Bobby Brown's sister.

The families were in a bitter feud for months over the care and the estate of Bobbi Kristina, but it appears there's at least a temporary detente.  

Bobbi Kristina was taken off all life-sustaining medication keeping her alive last week after doctors told the families there was nothing more they could do for her.

Britney Spears

Fires Back at Iggy Azalea

At Least I Have Shows!

Britney Spears/Iggy Azalea's feud has reached Defcon 1 ... and Britney is taking shots at Iggy's failed tour ... while promoting her own. 

After Iggy bashed Spears over their failed song, "Pretty Girls," Spears cleverly shot back, "Can't wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to... #YouWantAPieceOfMe."

You'll recall ... Iggy said, "I don't have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend."

Spears is no doubt making reference to the fact Iggy pulled the plug on her 2015 Great Escape arena tour in May.

Who doesn't love a good catfight?

Iggy Azalea

I Don't Have to Suck Britney's A**hole

She's Why Our Song Bombed

6/29/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea has an excuse for everything ... and this time she's throwing stones at Britney Spears

The song "Pretty Girls" bombed hard, despite a highly publicized music video. Iggy now says it's because Britney didn't get off her ass and promote it. Here's how she put it: "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured."

Then Iggy goes in for the kill, saying, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls." 

Here's the thing. Iggy never says what Britney was required to do. She also has to know ... doing promotional interviews isn't exactly Britney's strong suit ... as in she's a deer in headlights.

And the song got more promotion than most.

Waaaaa, waaaaa, waaaaaa.

WNBA's Glory Johnson

I'M HAVING TWINS

With or Without Brittney

6/29/2015 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0629-glory-johnson-baby-ultrasound-INSTAGRAM-01WNBA star Glory Johnson just announced ... she's carrying TWINS ... and says it's exactly what she and her estranged wife Brittney Griner planned all along. 

Johnson says she's 9 weeks preggo with the two kids -- and says, "Its not a surprise for me because this is what we planned for with the IVF Cycle."

As we previously reported, Griner distanced herself from the pregnancy in court docs -- saying she has no biological connection to the kids and didn't know any of the key details about the pregnancy. 

But Glory is remaining positive ... saying, "Hearing their hearts beat for time was the most ASTONISHING thing I have ever heard in my ENTIRE LIFE."

Her announcement even came with a basketball pun -- "For 15yrs Double-Doubles came with hardwork and dedication...now I've been blessed by God to have "double doubles" for the rest of my life!"

Still unclear what role, if any, Griner will have in the children's lives ... since she filed to annul the marriage to Johnson just 28 days after they tied the knot.  

Wyclef Jean

Fires Trump As a Friend ...

F**k Him for Mexico Rant

6/26/2015 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Wyclef Jean ripped his old pal Donald Trump for attacking Mexican immigrants ... by dropping an f-bomb on him during a concert.

The ex-Fugees rapper was in Pomona, CA Thursday night when he went off on Trump ... referencing the Presidential nominee's comment that most Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. Clef's attack was short, sweet, and very telling. 

He had appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice" ... doing a guest spot in the boardroom once, and also played a corporate gig for Trump.

But watch this vid -- there'll be one less holiday card for both men to send this year.

Donald Trump wants a wall erected -- not at the U.S./Mexican border -- at his fancy Miami golf course, and he's making anyone working for Univision persona non grata.

Trump wrote a letter to the Prez of Univision, saying "Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use TRUMP NATIONAL DORAL, MIAMI -- its golf courses or any of its facilities."

The Donald also included instructions to "stop work and close the gate" that is being built between the neighboring properties.

Trump is amping up his attack against Univision after the network pulled the plug on his Miss USA pageant. TMZ broke the story, Trump plans to sue the network for hundreds of millions of dollars, claiming the 5-year-deal was iron-clad.

Trump ended his letter by promising if he's elected president he'll erect a "meaningful border ... not the laughing stock that it currently is."

Floyd Mayweather

Andre Berto Is Delusional

'He's Not Even On My Speed Dial'

6/25/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625-floyd-andre-tmz-01Floyd Mayweather says Andre Berto is CRAZY if he thinks he's wasting his time prank calling the boxer -- with a rep for The Money Team telling TMZ Sports, "He's not even on Floyd's speed dial."

Berto appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" on Wednesday ... and told us he believed Mayweather has been terrorizing him on the phone over beef that has to do with a woman. 

"I know it's him on the other line. I can hear him breathing," Berto told us. 

But a rep for TMT tells TMZ Sports ... Berto is "delusional" -- saying, "If they fight, we will see who has the last laugh." 

Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards

Brandi Glanville's Full of 'Poo'

6/25/2015 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump is scoffing at Brandi Glanville's claim she was not fired from "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," calling her explanation a "crock of poo."

Lisa and Kyle Richards were leaving Villa Blanca in Bev Hills Wednesday when our photog asked about Brandi's claim she left on her own terms. 

There are reports Brandi was 86'd because she didn't get along with all the girls, especially Lisa. But Vanderpump only wishes she had the juice to kick that kind of ass. 

Kim Zolciak

NeNe Doesn't Call the Shots ...

Claudia's Just Boring

6/23/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak isn't about to let NeNe Leakes come off like she's the queen bee of 'RHOA' -- and doesn't believe for a second her nemesis has the power to get anyone canned off the show.

Kim blew up NeNe's spot when we saw her at LAX, and filled her in on Claudia Jordan getting 86'd after one season. She says all the talk about NeNe masterminding the firing doesn't add up for her ... mainly because she made a living off of "double-crossing" Leakes.

The real person Claudia should blame is herself, according to Kim -- but you gotta hear how she puts it. 

And anyone thinking Zolciak might fill the empty roster spot -- think again. Bad blood ain't just for Taylor Swift.

50 Cent

CLOWNS DIDDY

... Over UCLA Arrest (Video)

Take that. Take that. Take that.  

It only took 50 Cent a few minutes to put together a video mocking his rap mogul adversary Diddy -- and it's pretty hilarious. 

While managing to promote his vodka line and his cable TV show, Fiddy explains how Diddy is locked up at UCLA because "sh*t got real with the coach!"

50 and Diddy have been going after each other in public for years ... and most of the time it's been pretty funny. 

Think Diddy will laugh when he sees this? Or try to hit 50 with a kettlebell (allegedly)?
