Marc Anthony doesn't want to up his child support payments to Dayanara Torres to $113K a month because he fears his kids will become spoiled brats ... and even worse.
Dayanara is asking for a huge monthly increase ... she currently rakes in $13K a month. She says she needs it because their kids live in relative poverty compared to the lifestyle they see when they're with daddy.
Dayanara says she wants the ability to fly her and the kids on private jets, to travel around the world and stay in 5-star hotels.
In legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Marc says he's saving Dayanara from herself by refusing to up the child support. He claims, the boys already have everything they need and the increase would "spoil them rotten."
Marc scoffs at Dayanara's plea for money so she can have a full staff, including a cook and a nanny. Marc says when he has the kids in L.A., "I cook or we order in. We often get Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut or Chinese food."
And get this. Marc hired a psychologist who wrote a declaration to the judge, discussing, "the problems of children who are raised with near unlimited funds, particularly children in Los
Angeles whose parents have made very large amounts of money in the entertainment industry."
The shrink says these kids -- especially in adolescent and teenage years -- "become high-risk for illicit drugs, alcohol and a fast-paced lifestyle that they are not emotionally capable of handling."
Hey Judge, Thanks for Rehab
Let's Smoke a Joint!
3/8/2014 12:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Looks like Chief Keef learned tons in rehab ... just weeks after completing his court-ordered stint, the rapper posted a smoked out selfie.
C.K. posted the pic on Instagram Friday night with caption the "At Home" ... showing off his hair in fancy pigtails.
You'll recall ... Keef was released from jail back in December but a judge ordered him to rehab for failing 3 drug tests while on probation.
Keef might consider ... the judge was already pissed off at him.
Note to Keef: Google "Red Flag, Bull."
I Know the Best Hangover Cure
... And It's Not Jell-O
3/8/2014 12:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Beans, beans, the magical fruit ... the more you eat, the more you ... boot a hangover -- at least that's what Bill Cosby says.
The 76-year-old TV legend was promoting a chili restaurant Thursday in Arlington, Virginia ... and our photog asked for his advice on how to cure a hangover.
Cosby had a quick, enthusiastic answer -- but his opinion is a little biased.
We hear Jell-O shots work too.
I Wanna Be The Double Cup King
3/8/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber wants to be the Donald Trump of Double Cups ... the Sultan of Sizzurp ... because he wants to go into business to create his own line of signature styrofoam cups ... TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Bieber tell us ... the boring styrofoam cup -- which has been around since the 40s -- has become the container of choice for lean ... and Justin thinks it's a cool money-maker.
Sources tell us, Bieber has a special affinity for styrofoam because he loves to doodle on them, and that will be the inspiration for the line of cups with the JB logo.
By the way ... Bieber isn't the first person to jump on the styrofoam train. Rick Ross and Soulja Boy both have lines of cups with their monikers.

I Need Retail Therapy
After Years Of Prison
3/6/2014 3:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie is carrying serious baggage after rotting in the slammer for 5 years.
Boosie -- who was just released after serving his sentence on drug charges -- took his kids to The Esplanade Mall in Kenner, Louisiana Thursday where he dropped wads of cash on new clothes.
Sources tell TMZ, Boosie spent most of his time in the Polo section at Macy's and also bought some new kicks at Footaction USA. He also stopped at some store called Nouveau, hence the bags.
No word on whether he also hit up Cinnabon or Sbarro.
Arresting DUI Cop ...
More Evidence of LIES
3/6/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Miami Beach cop who says he saw Justin Bieber drag racing before his DUI arrest may have been caught in a BIG FAT LIE ... because the GPS results from the cop's car shows normal speed.
TMZ has obtained the GPS readout during the 4 AM hour on January 23. Bieber was stopped at 4:11 AM. The cop claims he saw Bieber drag racing rapper Khalil at speeds between 55 and 60.
Now here's the problem. According to the GPS readout on the cop car ... it was going 11 MPH at the 2600 block of Pine Tree Dr. ... which is where the cop says he first spotted the singer in the Lambo.
The cop accelerated from 11 to 31 MPH in a single block but stayed between 30 and 40 for 3 blocks.
The GPS readout shows the cop car accelerated to 46 and then 49 ... but that's the FASTEST it went.
Now this is significant ... at the 3700 block of Pine Tree ... the cop car had slowed down to 31 MPH. This street is critical because according to the cop it was smack in the middle of the drag race. And get this ... we already broke the story that Bieber's GPS shows he was going 27 MPH on that block.
So the question ... where the hell is the drag race? Remember, the other cop on scene may have lied about smelling alcohol on Bieber's breath ... fact is, the singer registered a .014.
The GPS makes the case against Bieber VERY shaky because it calls the arresting officer's credibility into question. We're told Khalil's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, is going to attack the cop's credibility. Khalil was also busted for DUI.
FREE AT LAST...
Rapper Released From Prison
3/6/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie is a free man ... the rapper has just been released from a Louisiana State Penitentiary where he's been locked up since 2009 on drug charges.
31 year old Boosie -- real name Torrence Hatch -- was intitially locked up on a marijuana charge in '09 -- but during his stay, he was busted attempting to smuggle drugs into prison -- so a judge tacked 8 years on to his original sentence.
But Boosie caught a break and has been released early. A rep for the penitentiary has told the media Boosie will be on parole until 2018.
Passes Out Cold
Rushed to Hospital in Ambulance
3/5/2014 9:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Someone put a spell on Carlton Gebbia -- the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' resident witch -- passed out at dinner tonight and had to be taken to a hospital by ambulance.
Carlton was having dinner at Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills ... and according to sources in the restaurant she'd been boozing ... HARD.
We're told Carlton was footing the dinner bill for her party of 6 women -- and immediately started the night by slamming tequila shots ... at least 5 of them.
After that, things went downhill quickly and only 20 minutes into the dinner ... Carlton passed out at the table -- and someone called 911 at 9:22PM PT.
Witnesses tell us it appeared Carlton was still unconscious when she was wheeled out of the restaurant on a stretcher and placed in the ambulance.
Carlton is one of the RHOBH chicks whose head has been on the chopping block -- rumored to be getting 86'd from the show because she's too boring.
Suspected in Kardashian Jewelry Heist
3/5/2014 1:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom's drug dealers could be linked to the $250,000 jewelry heist at Lamar and Khloe's house ... because we're told the dealers threatened to break in to get the money Lamar never paid.
Multiple sources involved in Lamar's drug deals last year tell TMZ ... Lamar wasn't paying his tab. In fact, our sources say he was in the hole $15K to just one dealer back in Sept. and he owed another more than $40K.
Lamar would fend them off by saying he was loaded and therefore good for it. He would also justify not paying from time to time because the quality of the drugs was "wack."
We're told Lamar owed 10s of thousands of dollars to drug dealers when he left for Spain last month.
Now the plot thickens. We're told Lamar was getting text messages threatening his safety and also warning him they would break into his home to get even.
Cops don't know who stole the expensive jewelry but we're told there was no sign of forced entry. One source says he has reason to believe one of the dealers had connections to someone who works for the family and had lawful access to the house.
Cops to Sean Kingston
Eenie Meenie Miney Mo ...
Pay Your Bar Tab, Or We Can't Let You Go
3/5/2014 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sean Kingston might be used to getting freebies -- but TMZ has learned, he had to answer to cops in the Dominican Republic this weekend after allegedly skipping out on an $8K bar tab.
The singer was with friends Saturday at a place called Euphoria -- and sources at the club tell us, there was a miscommunication between Sean and the managers. We're told the managers promised to "take care of" Sean and Sean thought that meant comping his drinks -- not so.
We're told Sean had a great time -- drinking, smoking hookah -- and ran up a bill of $8,771 ... before leaving the club without paying a dime.
According to sources, the club quickly called Dominican police -- who eventually tracked Sean down on Sunday ... insisting he had to pay the bill, or he wouldn't be able to leave the country.
When he realized the mistake, we're told Sean was VERY apologetic -- and returned to the club to ante up in full.
Peeing Behind Bars
Jail's Got More Cameras Than 'Big Brother'
3/5/2014 11:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
This is getting ridiculous ... the Miami Beach PD just released yet another video of Justin Bieber in jail -- this time showing the singer peeing into a cup -- and it feels like an episode of "Big Brother."
So far, the Miami Beach PD has released 9+ hours of footage (photos too) showing Bieber in jail following his DUI arrest -- including the pat-down, the push ups, the sobriety test, the tattoos ... and now they're showing Bieber taking his urinalysis test.
As we reported, the urinalysis test came back positive for Xanax and weed. (This is NOT the video clip police are having trouble blurring. It's a different camera angle of the same thing.)
It's like the police are turning Bieber's arrest into a mini reality show -- they claim the singer isn't entitled to privacy in jail ... and they might be right ... but we've never seen anything like this before.
And we've seen plenty of DUI arrests.
Justin's Ass-Kissing Won't Work
3/5/2014 8:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez isn't falling for Justin Bieber's old tricks anymore ... she's exercising her rehab knowledge and slamming the door shut on any future relationship.
Sources close to Selena tell us ... Selena scoffed at Biebs' Instagram photo of her at an Oscars party with the caption, "Most elegant princess in the world." Sorry J.B. ... we're told she laughed out loud when she saw it, saying it was stupid and childish.
Selena's party line ... she went to rehab to get over Justin and it worked. The reality ... she went to rehab for booze and weed. Good luck, Selena.
