Chester Bennington I Want My Kids to Stay Close ... Left $$$ to Make Sure of It

10/19/2017 3:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chester Bennington was all about his modern family -- 6 children from 3 relationships -- and made provisions in his will to make sure they remained tight after he was gone.

According to Chester's will -- filed in probate court in L.A. County, and obtained by TMZ -- he said, "I request that my children's mothers or Guardians encourage and allow my children to visit with one another and with my extended family and the extended family of my Spouse on a regular and ongoing basis, so that my children know that they have a large and loving family."

He instructed the trustee of his family trust to make sure they all get money to cover travel expenses.

Chester and his widow, Talinda, had 3 children together, he had one from his first marriage to Samantha Olit -- and before that, he had one child with a girlfriend in Arizona. He later adopted that girlfriend's other son.

As for how much money the Linkin Park frontman left behind -- that's all under wraps in his trust.

One other interesting note -- Talinda is the executor of Chester's will, but the alternate executor is his former business manager, Jonathan Schwartz. We say former because Schwartz is now doing time in federal prison for wire fraud. He also managed Alanis Morissette, Mariah and Beyonce and was arrested for embezzling millions from his famous clients.

Nick Cannon Hey, Kids ... Stay the Hell Away from Hollywood!!!

10/19/2017 6:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon's advice to parents looking to get their child actors into Hollywood? Don't.

We got Nick out at LAX Wednesday and wanted to get his take on whether kids are safe in the industry following Reese Witherspoon's revelation she was sexually assaulted by a director as a 16-year-old. She confessed the harrowing experience amid Harvey Weinstein's continuing fallout. 

Nick -- himself a kid actor, performer and teenage star -- had zero hesitation about where he stands: kids shouldn't be working ... especially in Hollywood. 

Travis Barker Throws Son Epic 14th Bday Lil Pump Rocks the House!!!

EXCLUSIVE

If Travis Barker's looking for another side project it should be party planning ... because the 14th birthday bash he threw his son, Landon, shamed just about every over-the-top Sweet 16.

Travis turned his backyard into a mini-concert and the headliner was Lil Pump. Pump's got the No. 3 album on the charts, so it's a big deal.

We're told there were around 100 guests, including Stevie Wonder's kids and other celeb spawns. 

Coolest part ... Landon got to share the stage with Pump and had a Louis Vuitton x Supreme-themed duffel bag cake. 

The teen summed it up perfectly ... "Last night was a movie."  

Guess Who This Bowl-Cut Boy Turned Into!

Young Kate From 'This Is Us' Whopping Raise For Season 2

10/15/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

10-year-olds can barely get their hands on a crisp $20 bill, but Mackenzie Hancsicsak, who plays Young Kate on "This Is Us," is already hustling $4k pay raises. 

We got ahold of Mackenzie's minors contract for the hit NBC show. It's her first TV role ever and it landed her a $8,210 payday per episode the first season. 

Cut to season 2 ... Mackenzie got a huge bump to $12.5k an episode. That's a lot considering her raise for season 3 won't be as much ... it'll only go up about $500 to $13k an episode.

Still ... that's a lot of $20s.

Ariel Winter Niece Gets in Family Biz Kid Ain't Playing at $12k per Episode!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Ariel Winter's niece ain't about the lemonade-stand life ... not when the 8-year-old wants to ball out like her super famous aunt.

Skylar Gray -- who idolizes Ariel -- landed her first big TV gig playing young Abby on the CBS sitcom, "Me, Myself & I," and already she's making more dough in one year than most recent college grads.

According to docs obtained by TMZ, Skylar's making $12,500 per episode and she's guaranteed at least 6 episodes. If she appears in all 13 episodes, Skylar stands to make up to $162,500.

Cross your fingers, kid ... because if the show's a hit, Skylar could make just over $200k that year ... as a 8-year-old.

Must be nice.

Sergey Kovalev Beat The Hell Up ... By Tiny Toddler Son

10/12/2017 12:25 PM PDT

Sergey Kovalev just lost his 3rd straight fight, but it wasn't Andre Ward this time, it was his cute little toddler son, who totally laid the smack down on dear old dad with a vicious right hand.

Sergey is in Oxnard right now training for a big comeback fight with Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (we copy pasted that name) and got some work in with a new sparring partner, his son Aleksandr.

Watch the fight, the nearly 2-year-old "Little Krusher" clearly controls the action, then lands the defining blow to his pop's face, which is enough to get a decision from us.

Get the kid signed up, he's a natural.

Ciara & Janet Jackson Mommy & Me Day at Disneyland!!!

10/11/2017 7:41 AM PDT

Ciara and Janet Jackson barely have kids old enough to enjoy Disneyland ... not that anyone needs an excuse to hit up The Happiest Place on Earth.

Ciara and her 3-year-old son, Future, teamed up for a super play date with Janet and 10-month-old son Eissa on Tuesday flanked by a few friends ... and a small army.

Janet and Ciara were surrounded by 6 bodyguards. Miss Jackson also hired 3 VIP tour guides ... because that's how she rolls.

They hopped on Space Mountain, and the Indiana Jones and the Peter Pan rides, among others.

Not that Eissa will remember, but at least Janet enjoyed the carousel ride.

Angelina Jolie does Halloween like the Griswolds do Christmas lights because she dropped a fortune -- to most of us -- on costumes and decorations.

Angie cruised the aisles of Glendale Halloween last weekend -- she only had Zahara and one of the twins in tow, but looks like they scooped up enough for the whole gang. We're told Mom spent nearly a grand in just one hour. Here's a partial list of her swag:

-- Bleeding machete
-- Ninja weapon set
-- Big baby costume prop
-- Rainbow tutu
-- Pumpkin teeth
-- Straight jacket
-- Fake dead bird in a cage

She's been busy on the Halloween store circuit -- she also loaded up last week at Hollywood Toys and Costumes. Twenty more shopping days, Angie!

'Little Women: Dallas' Pregnant Again But Who's The Daddy???

10/11/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: Dallas" star Bri Barlup might wanna call up Jerry Springer ...  she's expecting baby number two but has no idea who's the baby daddy.

We're told Bri's about 5 months along and that there are 2 guys who could be the father. They both will be taking paternity tests.

There's also the question of whether the child will carry the dwarfism gene ... something Bri most likely won't know until the baby is born.

She already has a 3-year-old son, Malik, who's also a little person, with an ex-boyfriend. 

Congrats!

Kourtney Kardashian I'm Good with Scott Dating Sofia

10/8/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian's got no problems with her ex dating someone else, because if he's happy ... she's happy. Besides ... she's clearly moved on.

Our Kardashian sources tell us ... Scott Disick's relationship with 19-year-old Sofia Richie doesn't bother Kourtney, because she thinks it's genuine and feels good that he's moving on. She's clearly done the same, also with someone much younger -- 24-year-old model Younes Bendjima.

We're told Kourtney and Scott have been on good terms for months now and have the co-parenting thing down ... and Scott being with Sofia hasn't rocked the boat.

As we reported ... Kourtney laid out the rules for Scott -- he had to clean up his act if he wanted to be around their kids. So far, it seems like his time with Sofia is helping.
