Ralphie May Killer Typhoon a Threat to My Kids

7/15/2016 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0715-ralphie-may-TMZ-01Ralphie May's children are about to be right in the path of a massive typhoon that's already killed dozens -- or so he believes, which is why he rushed to court to block his estranged wife's vacay plans.

Ralphie's ex, Lahna Turner, was planning to take their 2 kids to China from July 9-18 for what she called an "educational trip." Ralphie wasn't down with that because he says Lahna's been interfering with his custodial parenting time. 

The comedian also busted out meteorology to sway the court -- referencing super typhoon Nepartak. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, he said the storm was on track to hit Shanghai during the vacation. 

The court sided with Ralphie and put the kibosh on the Lahna's plans. 

Probably for the best ... Nepartak destroyed Taiwan last Thursday, killing more than 20 people, and then headed toward mainland China.

Louis Tomlinson My Baby Mama Needs a Muzzle

7/3/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701-louis-tomlinson-briana-jungwirth-INSTAGRAM-SNAPCHAT-02Louis Tomlinson is willing to settle his custody beef with baby mama Briana Jungwirth, but only if she agrees to keep their relationship and kid off social media. 

TMZ broke the story, the One Direction singer filed legal docs for joint custody, because he claims Briana's denied him access to 5-month-old Freddie.

We're told Louis would like to avoid a court battle if they can come to terms. Louis wants pre-approval rights of any Freddie pics Briana wants to post.

For her part, Briana says she has a right as a proud mom to post pics of their son, and she says she hasn't trashed Louis so he has nothing to complain about.

As for the source of the conflict, Louis is convinced Briana is blinded by jealously over his relationship with Danielle Campbell, and she went crazy when Freddie came home with the smell of Danielle's perfume. Louis thinks things will be fine if Briana just moves on.

But we're told Briana fires back ... jealously isn't in her playbook. Her concern about Danielle is purely about Freddie ... she believes Louis' GF may be a crazed fan, and it worries her.

Louis Tomlinson, Baby Mama Custody Fight Over His Girlfriend

6/30/2016 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-louis-tomlinson-briana-jungwirth-instagram-01Louis Tomlinson is going to court for joint custody because he claims his baby mama is keeping him from their child because she hates his girlfriend, but she says the GF poses a security risk to the kid.

TMZ broke the story, the One Direction singer is now asking a judge to award him joint custody and equal access to 5-month-old Freddie, because recently she's been denying him access to the infant.

063016-louis-danielle-gettyWe're told Louis chalks the whole thing up to jealously. There have been lots of pics posted of him and Danielle Campbell, and he says the photos send her into a rage.

Louis says he and baby mama Briana Jungwirth have actually gotten along until recently and he was seeing the baby all the time, but things have now taken a turn for the worse.

As for Briana, we're told she says it's annoying that when Louis has the baby, he'll come back home smelling like perfume. But Briana's real problem ... she believes Danielle may be nothing more than a crazed fan who now knows her home address and gate security code.

We're also told Briana will object to joint custody if he has a nanny, because she feels that isn't true parenting on his part. She also wants to make sure the kid stays in the U.S. 

Louis Tomlinson Baby Mama Keeping Me from My Son I Want Joint Custody

EXCLUSIVE

062916-louis-tomlinson-Louis Tomlinson has had it with his baby mama denying him access to his child, so he's now going to court to seek joint custody ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us Briana Jungwirth has been "inconsistent" in giving Louis access to 5-month-old Freddie Reign ... especially recently.

Louis wants to be a real father and present in Freddie's life, so he's going to court not just seeking joint physical and legal custody, but a 50/50 split in terms of the division of time each spends with their son.

The One Direction singer, we're told, is paying Briana around $15k a month in child support, and a judge will now set whatever amount is deemed appropriate. Louis is also renting a $1 million house for Briana and the kid in Calabasas.

EXCLUSIVE

0623-chad-ochocinco-TMZ-01Chad Ochocinco's a deadbeat dad ... this according to his baby mama who says Chad's in the red on child support.

Andrea Pearson says Chad failed to make a $5,250 payment in April ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ. Her petition for contempt offers the judge several options ... garnish Chad's wages, slap him with a fine, or throw him in the pokey.

As we previously reported ... Chad's had money trouble going as far back as 2013, when his expenses far outpaced his income

We reached out to Chad who scoffed at the amount, telling TMZ, "5k? That's it? All she had to do was call like normal people do. You can always tell who is in it for the money." 

Madonna & Rocco Gonna Dress You Up ... In a Mask

6/1/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-madonna-rocco-ritchie-broadway-masks-INF-01Madonna finally got what she wanted ... her son Rocco back in New York City and she's wasting no time getting in some QT.

Madge took Rocco, older sis Lourdes and some pals out Tuesday to the off-Broadway show "Sleep No More." They all left wearing masks -- it's part of the show -- but their cover was already blown.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie made peace a couple months ago in their custody war over Rocco -- and it looks like he's out of school in the U.K. now, and ready to hang with Mom.

Happy ending for everyone.

Chris Brown Scores Big Legal Victory in Custody War

5/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524_chris_brown_nia_guzman_tmz-instagramChris Brown annihilated his baby mama in court Tuesday, after a judge pooh-poohed her request to restrict Brown's custody because of alleged drug use and gang affiliation.

Nia Guzman claimed Chris was unfit to care for Royalty without strict supervision. She wanted a monitor and more ... Nia asked the judge to reduce the amount of contact he has with the 1-year-old.

The judge wasn't having it, so the status quo remains. We're told Chris and Nia will continue to have joint legal and physical custody. Under the existing custody order, Chris gets 12 days a month with his daughter and it will continue to be unmonitored.

Nia's also gunning for more child support, although that wasn't on the table. She's getting $2,500 a month but wants it upped to nearly $16k a month.

Ciara Loses Big to Future in Custody War

5/17/2016 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0516-ciara-future-tmz-2Ciara got shot down in a big way in custody court Monday ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the former couple say Ciara showed up in court asking for sole custody of their 1-year-old son, baby Future. She claimed Future was a bad parent who was not present in the child's life. We're told she and her lawyer also trash talked Future to the judge, saying he was a bad person.

For his part, Future showed up and asked for joint custody, and the judge was squarely on his side, rejecting her arguments.  

California courts favor joint custody, so the decision was in line with the law.

We got Ciara leaving court, and she was mum.

It's been a bitter battle since baby Future was born. She's filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against him. The case is ongoing.

Brian Dunkleman Nuclear Custody Battle Assaults, Alcoholism, Child Stealing Allegations

5/13/2016 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-brian-dunkleman-divorce-GETTY-03Brian Dunkleman is in the middle of one of the nastiest custody fights in Hollywood ... with each firing various claims including physical abuse, alcohol addiction and child stealing.

Dunkleman says his wife, Kalea, is an alcoholic who is so out of control she poses a danger to himself and their 3-year-old son, Jackson. He says she has drunkenly punched him in the face and is now involved with a cartel drug dealer she met in rehab.

The former "American Idol" host says he was so fearful he took Jackson to New York last month, went to court and got an order giving him temporary physical custody, pending a hearing.

For her part, Kalea says it's Brian who's the abuser. She says he has picked her up and thrown her against a wall in front of their son and has verbally abused her, calling her a c***, an abomination and a useless bitch. And she says he's so abusive he once locked her out of the house and made her pee outside while he smirked at her.

She admits she's had alcohol problems -- she says drinking was part of her job as a publicist for big chefs like Wolfgang Puck, but she insists she's now on the straight and narrow. 

Kalea is asking a judge to order Brian to immediately return Jackson to California.

They've been married since 2007.
