Chris Brown

Baby Mama Claims Deadbeat Dad

He Says She's Money Hungry

5/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-chris-brown-nia-sanchez-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

Chris Brown is at war with his baby mama, who claims he's stopped paying the measly $2,500 a month in child support, and now she's gunning for 6 times that.  

Multiple sources connected with the couple tell TMZ, Chris has been paying baby Royalty's mom, Nia Guzman, the $2,500, but the gravy train stopped in March. Our Chris sources say he stopped paying because Nia demanded $15k a month, which he thinks is ridiculous.

We're told Chris says Nia's treating the baby like a winning lottery ticket, but she claims he's being incredibly cheap and their daughter is suffering as a result. 

We're told Nia's lawyer, Carl Moore, will be filing legal docs in the next 2 weeks demanding back child support and a huge monthly hike.  

We're hearing rumblings of settlement.

Michelle Rounds to Rosie

I Want Full Custody…

Of Our Baby Pictures

5/25/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-rosie-odonnell-michelle-rounds-tmzRosie O’Donnell's divorce has gotten so bitter it's gone from fighting in divorce court to battling over the rights to Instagram.

Michelle Rounds is on the attack, claiming she took a picture of their daughter, Dakota, and Rosie had the nerve to post it on Instagram.

Michelle says the law is crystal clear -- she took the pic so she owns the rights to it, and therefore Rosie has no right to post the pic anywhere.

Michelle has contacted Instagram, demanding that the pic be scrubbed from the site. So far the company has taken no action.

Rosie and Michelle are both under a gag order, prohibited from disparaging each other in the media ... social or otherwise.

Warren Sapp

Ex-Hookers Schooled Me

On the Street Life

5/25/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0518-warren-sapp-mug-shot-1Warren Sapp graduated from the school of hooker hard knocks -- as part of his amazing plea deal in his Phoenix prostitution bust -- and TMZ Sports found out the curriculum.

Sapp got the solicitation charge dropped from the Super Bowl weekend arrest by completing a one day course, and according to his attorney ... the Hall of Famer's class featured some intense guest speakers. Craig Mehrens says Sapp heard from Phoenix PD Vice Squad officers as well as ex-prostitutes.

Both shared their experiences working the streets -- so you might say Sapp got it from both sides ... again.

His next step is getting the assault charge dropped, and Mehrens says Warren will be completing 15 anger management courses over the next few weeks to achieve that. We're told he can attend those classes closer to home in Florida.

By the way, no plea deals for the hookers who got busted with Sapp. They're planning to take their cases to trial in July. 

'Bad Grandpa' Wedding Couple

Adios, Jackass ...

Wife Files For Divorce

5/25/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0521-bad-grandpa-callaway-gablePerhaps having 'Bad Grandpa' star Johnny Knoxville trash your wedding isn't the best starting point -- just ask the movie's producer, whose marriage is now in ruins. 

According to the docs, 2 years after Jarrod Brom's wedding was featured in the film -- full of ball slaps and fart pranks -- his wife, Kimberly Peeler has filed divorce papers ... throwing in the towel, which was most likely up someone's butt.

You may recall ... film crews captured Knoxville's character demolishing a champagne tower and destroying the cake during their actual ceremony.

The divorce should be pretty clean though -- they don't have any kids, and in the docs Kimberly says there are no assets to split.

If Knoxville pops up in divorce court ... that would be awesome.

EXCLUSIVE

0522_boozers_benz_launchFor Carlos Boozer black is the new black -- the Lakers forward just dropped $50k to cover his Mercedes Benz in darkness, and TMZ Sports has pics of the finished product.

Boozer just copped a brand new 2015 Mercedes Benz G63 for $200k, but before cracking the door ... he shipped the whip down to the Auto Firm in Miami to get it blacker than Snooki after a 3 day weekend on the Jersey shore.

Alex Vega, who runs the joint tells us Boozer had them paint the whole thing "satin black" ... and then jacked it up to add Avorza 22-inch wheels and a brand new body kit.

The only non-black items added to Boozer's ride -- some sweet LED lamps embeded in the front bumper.  

Don't be afraid of the dark.

Farrah Abraham has to get something off her chest about Mackenzie McKee’s C-cup campaign -- buy your own boobs!

Our photog spotted Farrah sipping cocktails at the Mondrian Hotel in LA and asked about her fellow "Teen Mom" alum's breast implant fundraiser. McKee's asking for contributions toward her $5k boob job on MyFreeImplants.com. Last we looked she raised around $25. 

Farrah threw some serious shade on Mackenzie, saying she's a mooch.

The former sex tape star even clued us in on how much she paid for her boobs, and it’s not as much as you think.

Byron Allen

President Obama

'White President in Black Face'

EXCLUSIVE

TV mega-mogul Byron Allen trashed President Obama Saturday night, essentially calling him an Uncle Tom, accusing him of not acting "like a black man."

Allen, a major TV producer who often programs for minority audiences, said he was outraged Obama referred to the Baltimore rioters as "thugs."

Allen warned Obama, "remember who you are," telling him, "It's OK to be President and a black man."

And then Allen goes for the jugular, saying Obama is a "white President in black face."

So we gotta ask ...  

Mama June

Bring 'Honey Boo Boo' Back

Or I'll Sue for a Million Bucks!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0522_mama_june-_tlc_tmz

Mama June has given TLC an ultimatum -- either put "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" back on the air, or she'll sue the network for treating her far more harshly than the Duggar family. 

Mama June's lawyer tells TMZ, he gave the network the demand Friday, claiming the family's rights were violated when TLC yanked the show hours after TMZ posted a pic of June with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel. They say Josh Duggar's conduct was far worse, with fewer consequences.

The attorney told TLC the family is willing to work for the same terms as before and they are all on board.

The lawyer told TLC he'd be happy to resolve the matter in court ... where he believes he can score a $1 million jury verdict. 

The attorney says if he doesn't get any action in the next week, he'll file the lawsuit.

Benzino & Althea Eaton

Getting Marriage Counseling ...

And it Pays TOP Dollar

5/24/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-benzino-althea-tmz-01

Althea Eaton and Benzino's non-stop drama cost them their "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" gigs -- but it also helped them score $200k to appear on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars."

Sources close to the show tell TMZ that the powder keg lovebirds will work through their issues and see if they are truly ready for marriage in Season 4 -- and they'll rake in a sweet payday while they do it.

No doubt they make for good TV ... Benzino and Althea got tossed off 'LHHA' last year after allegedly instigating the now infamous all out brawl with Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez

Word of advice: the boot camp counselors should probably keep boxing gloves handy.

WWE Superstars

Wedding Crashers

5/24/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-wwe-wedding-crash-TMZ-01Forget groomsmen .... A Syracuse couple got what they were after Saturday night when 3 huge wrestlers from the WWE barreled into their wedding reception.

Roman Reigns, R-Truth and Jimmy Uso (none the groom) were at a bar in the hotel when they heard the reception and made their way in.  What they didn't know -- the bride, Beth Samuels and her freshly-minted hubby Matt were huge WWE fans.  

Beth knew the WWE was having a show in Syracuse so she sent an email to the wrestling org inviting any of the wrestlers who might be looking for something to do.

Turns out the 3 guys didn't have a clue about the email ... they just dropped by and stayed 45 minutes.

Only thing more awesome ... if one of the guys face-planted someone in the cake.

Chris Brown

I'm Going Back to Vegas

But There are Strings Attached

5/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-chris-brown-palms-las-vegas-TMZ-GETTY-01Chris Brown will be allowed back in the Vegas hotel where he brawled during a basketball game ... but there are serious strings attached.

Brown wants to spend part of the Memorial Day weekend at The Palms, but the hotel has reservations.

You'll recall during the Mayweather/Pacquaio fight weekend Chris had a ridiculous suite at The Palms, which had its own basketball court and at around 3 AM he allegedly attacked an opponent. Police investigated but no charges were filed.

The Palms management is agreeable to allowing Chris back, but now there are rules.  For starters, he is not allowed to throw parties in the suite without pre-approval from hotel honchos.  The rule doesn't apply if he has fewer than 15 guests.

But there's more. No outside food or alcohol, which sounds more than a money-maker for the hotel than a real rule.

Chris will be tested, because Karrueche is booked at the same hotel Saturday night, and this will be the first time they've seen each other since their breakup.

Vegas, Karrueche, basketball, and a bunch of rules … what could possibly go wrong?

NHL Legend Mike Bossy

My Super Rare Puck Is On eBay

...And I Want It Back!!

5/24/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-mike-bossy-hockey-puck-TMZ-GETTY-01NY Islanders Hall of Famer Mike Bossy is eyeing a legendary NHL puck on eBay, but  refuses to pay a dime -- 'cause in his mind he's the rightful owner, and he's pissed someone's trying to sell it off.

Here's the deal ... in 1981, Bossy scored 50 goals in 50 games -- a feat only accomplished by 4 other players -- but about 30 years ago the treasured 50th puck slipped out of his hands.

We spoke to the eBay seller, Jake Jacobson ... a HUGE Islanders fan and former swim coach, who claims he ended up with the prized puck when Bossy's young daughter gave it to him as a thank you for her swimming lessons.

A couple years ago he contacted Bossy and offered to return it, but claims Bossy "didn't really seem interested." He says Bossy offered him a signed stick and that's about it. "He couldn't even meet. It just wasn't a good offer."

0522-hockey-puck-ebay-art-EBAY-01So, now Jacobson's gone the eBay route, and Bossy's ready to drop the gloves. The Hockey Hall of Fame and Museum -- which also wants the puck -- tells us, "Mike's position is, if the puck was mistakenly given to the seller, it's his rightful property. He shouldn't have to buy it back."

Bossy hasn't lawyered up, and Jacobson's pressing forward with the auction ... which ends Tuesday. Here's the thing ... his opening bid is $850, and he has ZERO offers.

He says he's not worried ... "I've gotten a few offers this week outside of the auction. I want a true Islanders fan to have the puck. Bossy had his chance to get it back."
