Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody.
In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.
Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.
Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.
Dallas Cowboys' defensive end Greg Hardy just got hit with a tough penalty -- he's benched for 10 games without pay, after the NFL determined he brutalized his ex-girlfriend.
A 2-month NFL investigation determined Hardy attacked Nicole Holder 4 times. They concluded in May 2014, he:
-- used physical force that landed her in a bathtub
-- used physical force that landed her on a futon that was covered with 4 semi-automatic rifles
-- grabbed her by the neck, leaving visible marks
-- shoved her against a wall
Hardy, who was playing for the Carolina Panthers at the time, had been convicted of assault, appealed and had an automatic right to a new trial. But the second time around Holder refused to cooperate and the charges were dropped.
Florida State University says Jameis Winston NEVER told them about his alleged "hook up" at Publix -- and says the school is now launching an investigation with the NCAA into the QB's fishy crab tale.
FSU's Athletic Director Stan Wilcox just issued a statement saying, "We have become aware of statements made by Jameis Winston during a recent interview with Jim Harbaugh describing the circumstances of his alleged receipt of food from a local grocery store.
"The details disclosed by Winston in that interview were not previously known to the University.
"As is the case with all matters of this type, we will work in partnership with the NCAA to determine whether a violation occurred."
As TMZ Sports first reported, Publix says it conducted its own internal investigation into Winston's claims that an employee was giving him free stuff -- but found NO EVIDENCE to back up the QB's claims.
Either Jameis Winston lied to cops ... or he's lying now ... because his story about why he took crab legs from Publix has radically changed ... so says reps for the grocery store.
TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for the market ... who tells us they heard Jameis' explanation for the crab leg theft on ESPN, but insist his story isn't adding up.
FYI -- Winston appeared on the docuseries "Draft Academy" last night and said a Publix employee had "hooked him up" with a free birthday cake in the past and had promised more free stuff the next time Winston came into the market. That's why he claims he took the crab legs without paying.
But Publix says ... after the 2014 arrest, they launched an internal investigation and "never came across any evidence that suggests there was an arrangement that Mr. Winston or any other FSU athlete had with an employee."
There's more ... Publix also points out that when Winston was busted, he told police he had simply "forgot" to pay for the crab and didn't realize the mistake until he got home.
The rep for Publix continues ... "If Mr. Winston has new information about a person he had a deal with, we'd be happy to reopen the investigation."
But so far, Publix says ... "There is absolutely no information that corroborates Jameis' story."
The Rock, Vin Diesel,and Paul Walker are all names you will see at the end of"Furious 7" ... problem is the people actually responsible for most of the adrenaline pumping action are irate because they were left out of the end credits.
Sources directly connected with production tell us, the 2nd unit crew was responsible for all the major action ... including the parachuting car scene and the mountain road chase.
We're told the stunt team members feel like they were "punched in the gut" when they realized 25 members of their team -- many of whom risked their lives -- were left out of the credits.
And get this ... Paul Walker's 2nd unit stunt double -- who was inside a bus as it fell off a cliff -- was uncredited.
We contacted Universal ... they told us they're looking into it.
'Love & Hip Hop' couple Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith might be honeymooning in a federal prison ... because the groom just plead guilty to running a drug ring in upstate NY.
Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years.
Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August -- good thing for him ... since he and Yandy are getting married next month on "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding." By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from 'LHH.'
The only good news for Yandy -- when her hubby gets locked up ... she'll get back most of the $200k she put up for his bail when he originally got busted last year.
Odin Lloyd's mother is moving forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez AND the New England Patriots ... hoping to collect on the MILLIONS she claims the team was supposed to pay the former tight end.
Ursula Ward has re-filed docs in state court in Massachusetts that she originally filed back in 2013 ... claiming Hernandez should be held financially liable for the wrongful death of her son.
Of course, Hernandez was convicted of Lloyd's murder -- so, Ward has a pretty solid case against Aaron.
But in the suit, Ward also names the New England Patriots as "reach and apply defendants" -- meaning that if she wins ... she wants to be able to collect her judgment from the Pats.
Now, this is important because Ward claims that Hernandez has a right to collect $3.25 million of a signing bonus that she claims was due back in March 2014.
Ward does not specify how much she's demanding from Hernandez.
Mila Kunishas nice breasts ... problem is, she stole them along with other chicken parts, this according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman who claims to have been her best Ukrainian friend.
Kristina Karo claims 25 years ago she was in first grade with Mila in the Ukraine and they were inseparable. But Kristina says Mila had chicken envy -- specifically a chicken which answered to the name Doggie. Kristina alleges in her lawsuit she loved Doggie like a dog, and so did Mila, who would come to her house and play with the little clucker.
But one day Doggie disappeared, and Kristina says Mila confessed that she stole it, saying, "Kristina, you can have any other chicken as a pet, you have a whole chicken farm."
Kristina says in her lawsuit she became an emotional wreck and went into therapy.
Years passed, Mila moved to L.A. and became a big star. Kristina also eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a singing career. But the proximity brought back all the bad memories, and Kristina says the visions of Doggie being stolen by her former best friend threw her right back into therapy.
Kristina now needs shrink money, and a little extra for all the emotional distress ... in all, $5k.
And Kristina says Mila's conduct has prevented her from pursuing the American dream.
Odin Lloyd's mother tells TMZ Sports ... she's still deciding whether or not she will file a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez ... a lawsuit that could potentially be worth MILLIONS of dollars.
With Hernandez having been convicted of murdering the former semi-pro football player, the odds are extremely good that Lloyd's family would win a civil case against him.
And since Hernandez was an NFL star who made MILLIONS during his brief career ... there's real money on the line.
But when we spoke with Ursula Ward this week, she told us she had not made up her mind about whether she will go through with the lawsuit.
Ward wouldn't explain why she's on the fence -- but sometimes, grieving families would rather move on with their lives instead of reliving the nightmare in another high profile case ... no matter how much money is at stake.
L.A. County Sheriff's deputies paid a visit to Bruce Jenner's Malibu house Tuesday ... then went on the hunt for the paparazzi who have been perched on a nearby hillside and taking aim with telephoto lenses.
It's illegal for photogs to use telephoto lenses to invade the private spaces of the people they're shooting.
The photographers took pics of Jenner earlier in the day that were being peddled around town. They've also taken pics over the last week from the same perch and Bruce has confronted them. He said he would call the cops if they came back. Tuesday Bruce made good on his promise.
Bruce could, if he wants, probably get a restraining order against the photogs. He could sue them as well.
The Detroit Lions cut offensive lineman Rodney Austin on the heels of his arrest for assaulting a woman and a baby.
According to the police report ... Austin shoved Yvonne Gill-Sadler on April 5th around 2 AM during a dispute in her Charlotte, NC apartment -- and when she went down she was holding a female infant ... less than a year old.
The report also says Austin prevented Gill-Sadler from calling 911 by stealing her phone. The baby and Gill-Sadler were uninjured ... according to cops.

Austin, a backup player for the Lions ... was cut from the team Tuesday morning.
