Wiz Khalifa

Amber Has Our Son Living in Filth

Here's Proof [PHOTOS]

2/19/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Amber Rose Custody BattleWiz Khalifa will offer photo evidence Amber Rose's home is too dirty and unsafe for their toddler -- which is why Wiz wants to change their custody agreement.

TMZ broke the story ... Wiz is gearing up to demand an increase in the amount of time he gets with their 1-year-old son Sebastian -- and we're told these photos will be part of his case.

One of the images shows dog poop strewn across a backyard patio. As we told you one of the complaints from Wiz's camp is Amber's dog eats its own feces and then licks Sebastian's face.

Other pics include a knife left out on a counter top and loose garbage in the yard. 

Amber hasn't responded to calls for comment. She's been kinda busy ... much like Wiz.

Arian Foster

Settles Baby Mama Drama

Houston Texans star Arian Foster is putting his nasty baby mama feud behind him by settling their child custody and support battle ... before it went to trial.

According to court records, Foster and Brittany Norwood decided they didn't want to take the case to trial and have come to an agreement on their own. The two were supposed to appear in a Houston court next week, but that's been cancelled.

As TMZ Sports first reported, Norwood filed court docs last year claiming when she got pregnant with Foster's kid ... he harassed her to get an abortion. She gave birth to a boy last summer.

Foster responded by claiming she was lying about him in public to shake him down for cash. The judge eventually placed a gag order on both of them.

Attorneys for Arian and Brittany refused to comment about the settlement ... due to the gag order.

Wasted with Chicks

I'm Not Talkin' Amber Rose Tonight!

EXCLUSIVE

021815_wiz_khalifa_launch_v2Wiz Khalifa stumbled out of a Hollywood club just before 2 AM Wednesday, and his posse railed at our photog for daring to ask the question Wiz himself raised about Amber Rose being a bad parent because she stays out too late.

Wiz was feeling no pain as he left Emerson Theatre. TMZ broke the story ... he's gearing up for a custody fight, claiming Amber Rose cares more about partying than parenting.

No doubt he has every right to party when he isn't taking care of 1-year-old Sebastian, but listen to the outrage from his friends when the subject is raised.

Meanwhile back at the ranch Trinidad Carnival, Amber Rose is partying it up in barely any clothing.

Thank God for nannies.

Amber Slacks as a Mom

Wants More Custody

2/17/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0216-wiz-khalifa-amber-rose-child-custody-TMZ-01Wiz Khalifa is gunning for more custody of his 1-year-old son, because he believes Amber Rose is a bad mom ... according to documents obtained by TMZ.

We've learned Wiz's camp has put together a laundry list of complaints, including:

-- Amber often stays out all night, requiring that relatives and staff take over

-- The family dog eats its own feces and then licks Sebastian's face

-- When she wakes up she'll play with the kid for 15 minutes or so and then disappear

-- Amber and her mom have a volatile relationship, laced with "shouting matches and vulgar exchanges," which upset the boy. And during the arguments the N word was hurled by Amber's mom

Wiz has not filed legal docs to change custody, but we're told that's coming ... which is why he's getting relatives and others involved to help him make a case.

I'm Just So Fresh and Clean ...

In My New House

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June New House Sugar BearSugar Bear's gonna see Honey Boo Boo on a regular basis ... as long as he respects Mama June's new house rules -- and believe it or not ... she's running a tight, clean ship.

June finished moving into her new pad this past weekend, and we're told she and Sugar Bear have worked out a visitation plan. He'll make the 90-min trek from McIntyre to Hampton and pop in to see Alana on weekends. 

We got pics of June's new crib, where she has installed strict new rules like ... no shoes allowed -- those go in a bucket by the door. We're also told Alana and the rest of the girls must pitch in each day with daily chores. 

And clean laundry will never be an issue -- check out the pics ... including June's room practically filled with detergent.

Welcome to high society.

Stevie J

I'm Paying Support, But ...

My Kids Spend It Too Damn Fast!

2/11/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021015_stevie_j_launch_v2Stevie J has no problem paying his child support -- despite facing an indictment for NOT paying more than $1 million worth -- but he says the real problem is how much his kids spend. 

We got the "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" star in NYC on Tuesday -- shortly after he entered a not guilty plea in federal court for his child support case.

Watch the video ... Stevie is remarkably calm for a guy who's facing up to 2 years in prison for allegedly ducking $1.1 mil in support for his 2 kids. He says his confidence comes from knowing the case was dismissed from state court last year ... and thinks he'll get the same result in federal court.

He also talks briefly about his recent court-ordered rehab stint -- but the best part is the gem he drops when we ask if he's up to date on support now: "My kids can go through a check really quick."

You gotta see the rest.

Jeremy Renner

Estranged Wife Wants Custody and Cash

2/3/2015 10:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0203-jeremy-renner-sonni-pacheco-instagram-tmz
Jeremy Renner's estranged wife is gunning for primary custody of their kid ... and speaking of gunning, she has a issue with his.

Sonni Pacheco -- who married Jeremy in January 2014 -- has filed a document that is endlessly long, making a series of curious demands and accusations.

Sonni is asking for primary custody of their 22-month-old daughter Ava. What's curious ... since they split in December, we've learned they have shared 50/50 custody. In California there's a presumption that a divorcing couple should share joint custody, which is what they've had. 

In addition, she's claiming his house is unsafe for the child. Sonni says the pool needs to be properly fenced. She also claims he has a gun collection and one of the weapons are out in the open, behind a bar. But we're told when she lived in that house with their child the pool was protected and the guns were all locked up.

Sonni claims Jeremy's loaded and she's not -- so she wants lots of child support. She says he made around $3.5 million in 2014 and has $13 million in assets.

In the legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Sonni says when she told Jeremy he'd have to pay child support he responded, "Get a j.o.b." But our sources say he's been paying child support since they split.

She also wants $75K in attorney's fees and another $25K in other legal expenses. 

Sources connected with Jeremy grouse he's given Sonni everything she's asked for and this is just a ploy to make what should be a simple divorce very expensive.

I'm Riding With the Hells Angels Now

... Travis, Beware

1/29/2015 9:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Shanna Moakler BoyfriendTravis Barker has good reason to be worried about a run-in with Shanna Moakler's biker boyfriend ... turns out he's a Hells Angel.

TMZ has learned the boyfriend Moakler allegedly threatened to let loose on Barker ... is in the club's San Fernando Valley Chapter. Shanna and Travis were both arrested a couple of weeks ago for slinging death threats.  

Sources close to Shanna believe Barker will try to use her bf's Angel ties against her in their custody battle, but we're told Shanna's insisting he's a nonviolent pussy cat with no rap sheet.  

Despite her concerns ... Shanna posts pics of her man on the reg, but always blurs the Hells Angel patches on his cut. We're told Shanna's reminding friends the Angels do a lot of good charity rides and fundraisers.

Just don't ever touch his hog ... unless you're Shanna.

Ludacris

I Got Primary Physical Custody of Our Daughter

1/28/2015 12:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news
0127-ludacris-court-today-tmz-01
Ludacris just got what he was after in family court ... the judge just gave him primary physical custody of his 1-year-old daughter ... but the decision is really confusing.

The decision comes after baby mama Tamika Fuller bitterly testified Luda didn't want the baby when he found out she was pregnant, and even tried to negotiate an abortion by throwing 10K her way.

But sources connected with the rapper tell TMZ ... the judge reviewed the report from an independent expert as well as the testimony and concluded Luda was the more fit parent.

The judge awarded both Luda and Tamika joint legal and physical custody but said Luda will be "the primary physical custodian." We've watched the video of the decision and the judge messes up in a big way, saying Luda has decision-making authority. If that's true, he would have primary legal custody. Short story ... the judge makes very little sense.

Luda tells TMZ, "I am gratified that the judge found me to be the most fit and proper parent to have primary physical custody of our beautiful daughter."

Ludacris' Baby Mama

He Made Me Play

Let's Make an Pregnancy Deal

1/28/2015 6:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
012715_tamika_fuller_launch_v4
Ludacris' baby mama testified in court that it's ridiculously ludicrous he's fighting for full custody of their daughter, because he desperately wanted her to have an abortion to the point he even bribed her.

Tamika Fuller said when Luda found out she was pregnant he cried, but they weren't tears of joy. He said it would ruin his life and he then urged her to terminate the pregnancy. 

According to Tamika, Luda initially offered her $10K and a house if she lost the baby.   

As TMZ first reported, Fuller believes Luda's quicky marriage to Eudoxie was just a transparent ploy to show the  judge he has a more stable home than her. 0103_whos_daddy_footer

James Caan Divorce

EXCLUSIVE
0127-james-caan-wife-02
James Caan's estranged wife is firing back in divorce papers, and her message is clear -- our son's coming with me, Sonny!

Linda Caan filed her response to "The Godfather" star's divorce petition and she is demanding physical custody of their 16-year-old son Jacob. In his docs, James said he wanted to share physical and legal custody.  

The Caans also don't see eye-to-eye on money. According to Linda's docs ... she wants spousal support from Jimmy ... whereas he asked the court to terminate her right to spousal support.

As we previously reported ... we're told there is NO prenup -- so this one could get nasty.

Mama June Sugar Bear Child SupportMama June knows Sugar Bear is broke as a joke ... so she's willing to cut him a break on child support -- but she tells TMZ she's demanding something more important from him. 

Mama June says she and Suge aren't squabbling over money because she's flush right now, and realizes he's strapped for cash. However, she's putting her foot down when it comes to him spending time with Alana.

She says daddy-daughter time will be tricky once she moves to her new house 90 minutes away from McIntyre, GA ... where SB is living. June says they're working out a plan for regular visitation.  

We're told Sugar's determined to see his daughter -- and June says they've kept things very civil when it comes to Alana.

Lewis has a 5-month-old son with porn star Savannah Stern -- who decided to visit Lewis at his pad, which happens to be in a fancy private building in L.A. 

We spoke with Lewis who tells us ... Stern was served with court papers during the visit -- informing her that he has filed official documents in an effort to obtain sole custody of their child. 

Lewis says Stern began to flip out once she got served -- and began yelling and screaming ... to the point where building staffers decided to call police for help. 

Law enforcement confirms ... cops arrived to the scene around 9 PM and took an incident report but no one was arrested. We're told Stern eventually left the building without further incident. 

We reached out to Stern for comment -- no word back.
