Bristol Palin to Dakota Meyer You're the Daddy ... But I Get the Baby

2/21/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0219-bristol-palin-dakota-meyer-TMZ-GETTY-01Bristol Palin has just released her inner grizzly in her custody battle with baby daddy Dakota Meyer ... by insisting their newborn is better off staying in Alaska with her.

Dakota's DNA is a match with 2-month-old Sailor Grace, according to legal docs, but Bristol's still pushing back on his bid for joint custody. The problem ... she lives in Alaska and he's in Kentucky.

Bristol wants primary physical custody. She's ok if Dakota gets visitation, but that's it.

As for legal custody -- the right to make decisions for their kid -- she wants final say if there's a disagreement.

Bristol also wants child support ... he's already filed legal docs saying he's willing to pay ... though not necessarily as much as she wants.

Somewhere in the distance ... Levi Johnston is laughing ... and warning.

Morena Baccarin I'm Too Pregnant ... To Get Grilled by Your Lawyers

2/15/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-ben-mckenzie-morena-baccarin-austin-chick-GETTY-TMZ-01Pregnant "Gotham" star Morena Baccarin is on doctor-ordered bed rest, and says there's no way she can sit for a lengthy deposition in her divorce ... but she doesn't want to delay the split.

Morena's 8 months pregnant with her co-star Ben McKenzie's baby, but still in the middle of divorcing estranged husband Austin Chick. He's requested a date for her to sit down with their attorneys to start hammering out divorce deets. 

In the docs, 36-year-old Baccarin says she has a high risk pregnancy, and doctors have advised her that sitting for a depo would be "unnecessarily stressful." 

What would make her happy is a quick change in marital status -- she's requesting an immediate termination of the marriage ... but wants to settle child custody, support, and property issues later.

Morena's said she and Ben are going to get married, so this could be a way to make that happen faster. As for the depo ... she's happy to get it done 30 days after she gives birth.

2/9/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

We're told the animosity runs deep between Madonna and Guy ... she feels strongly their son needs structure and he's unable and unwilling to provide it.

As we reported, Rocco continues to live with Guy in London and they have a court date next month in NYC to square off on custody. 

'Too Close' Singer Raphael Brown Fears Child Stealing Wins Custody

2/8/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0128-raphael-brown-instagram-01"Too Close" singer Raphael Brown, from the R&B group Next, got sole custody of his kids -- at least for now -- and may have saved them from being snatched and moved to Minnesota. 

According to legal docs, Brown said his ex-wife, Juliette, abused their 12-year-old son and recently forcibly removed him from school.   

He says the first time the son was taken out of school, the boy ran scared and screaming from his mom's car. Brown says 2 days later his ex tried again, but the cops intervened and sent him home to his dad. 

Brown says he's scared his ex might also be abusing their daughter.

We spoke with Juliette and she thinks Raphael's a "difficult person" and this is merely a ploy to escape paying child support. She claims to be an exceptional mother who has never abused her kids, and has only doled out occasional spankings ... which she calls perfectly legal. 

The couple has had their share of troubles, and prior to getting sole custody ... Brown was concerned his ex would take the kids to Minnesota where her family lives.   

Bristol Palin's Baby Daddy I'm Blue Collar, So Put a Lid on Child Support

2/7/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-bristol-palin-dakota-meyer-tmz-getty-01Bristol Palin's newest baby daddy is one smart cookie, because he just beat her to the punch by telling the family law judge exactly how much he can afford in the child support department.

Dakota Meyer -- the father of Bristol's 2-month-old daughter Sailor -- claims in new legal docs he makes $100,000 a year working construction, and gets another $37k in disability from the Marine Corps.

Under Alaska law, Dakota's income would entitle Bristol to $1,754 a month in child support.

So, you ask, why is Dakota running to court to establish his legal obligation to pay child support? Well, he's a good student of history, because when Bristol was fighting Levi Johnston for child support, he tried convincing the judge her claims about his income were wildly inflated.

Dakota is trying to manage expectations out of the gate by immediately going on the offensive.

He should be a lawyer ... but then again, that would probably mean he'd pay more child support.

Tyga Blac Chyna's a Sketchy Parent And Drug Arrest Proves It

2/5/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020416-tyga-chyna-tmzTyga is alarmed his baby mama was arrested for possessing ecstasy and being wasted in public, and he's now sharpening the legal knives to wrestle custody from her. 

Sources connected with Tyga tell TMZ he's alarmed at Blac Chyna's arrest in Austin last week, and is worried her problems with drugs and alcohol might be putting 3-year-old King at risk.

Tyga has already filed legal docs to change the custody arrangement, and now thinks Chyna's recent run-in proves he's the more responsible parent and he should have King during the week, allowing her visitation on weekends.

And this is interesting ... we're told Tyga is well aware of the video Rob Kardashian posted of him playing with King. We're told Tyga is cool with Rob's relationship with Chyna and has no fear about being replaced as a father by anyone, including Rob.

Tyga thinks Rob is a good guy and has no problem with him. Chyna on the other hand ...

Madonna/Guy Ritchie Custody War Over Rocco Delayed a Month

2/3/2016 6:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0203-guy-ritchie-splash-01Guy Ritchie was tooling around London Wednesday -- the same day the NYC courtroom showdown with Madonna was scheduled -- but he didn't miss a thing, because the hearing's been put off a month.

Rocco's been living with his dad since the beginning of December, insisting he didn't want to go back and live with his mom. Rocco's position hasn't softened. It appears he hasn't returned to NYC to even visit.  

The hearing has been put off until March 2. We don't know the reason for the delay, but usually these delays have something to do with negotiations between the parents.

Gilbert Arenas 'Behaving Badly' Ordered to Co-Parenting Class

2/1/2016 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Gilbert Arenas has been "behaving badly" and needs to change ... so says a judge who just ordered the ex-NBA star to attend co-parenting classes with his ex ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Gilbert and Laura Govan -- the mother of his 4 children -- were just in L.A. County Superior Court ... where they've been battling out a custody arrangement ever since their nasty split last year. 

But on Monday, the judge admonished Arenas in open court -- saying, "Gilbert is behaving badly. He needs to change."

As we previously reported, Laura has claimed Gilbert is a "reckless parent" -- and was furious after he posted a video of their 8-year-old son dangerously riding on the front hood of a Polaris back in December. 

The hostility between Laura and Gilbert goes back way further than that -- but on Monday, the judge told them they NEED to learn to get along for the sake of the kids and ordered them to 12 hours of co-parenting classes, which must be taken together. 

If they don't complete the classes, the judge could alter the arrangement again -- affecting everything from Gilbert's financial obligation to visitation. 

They're due back in court in July -- giving them 6 months to figure things out. 

Good luck ... 

Chris Brown's Baby Mama You Gave Our Kid Asthma with Your Weed

1/31/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0128-chris-brown-nia-guzman-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Brown's baby mama claims the singer is not only a bad influence on their kid ... he's making the child sick. 

Nia Guzman claims 1-year-old Royalty has developed asthma, and she says it's all because Chris has exposed her to an extreme amount of secondhand smoke. Brown is a weed and tobacco enthusiast.

Nia says when Royalty comes back from a visit with Chris she usually reeks of smoke. 

Guzman also claims in legal docs she's worried Chris is abusing drugs and has relapsed ... especially with sizzurp.

Nia wants to restrict Chris' visitation ... asking the judge to force him to hire a full-time nanny or pull back on his right to be around the child.  

She also wants the judge to force Chris to take random drug tests, prohibit him from using drugs or consuming alcohol around Royalty, and stop him from smoking around their daughter. 

And Nia wants more child support ... she's getting $2,500 a month but wants it upped to nearly $16k a month.

We've reached out to Chris' attorney for comment ... so far, no word back.
