Romeo has some divorce advice for his mom -- if you want $67 million ... you need to earn it, and it starts with being a good mother.
Romeo opened up last night about his mom and dad ... Sonya Miller and Master P's split -- and her legal demand for a chunk of his empire ... telling us, "Honestly, I love my mom to death, but I mean -- we gotta just work out some things. She gotta be a better parent, y'know."
It sounds like he's referring to Master P's allegations that Sonya is smoking marijuana around their children ... which she's denied.
What's interesting is Sonya's been living WITH Romeo, but watch the clip -- he's backing dad in this divorce.

Marc Anthony is SCOFFING at his ex-wife for daring to claim he made $60 million over the last 4 years. Marc says she's way off ... he only makes a hair over $40 mil.
Marc filed new legal docs in his ongoing custody war with former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, who claims she was forced to live in a crappy San Fernando Valley hovel with their 2 kids while he lives lavishly.
But Marc is putting things in perspective, laying out his finances in the docs -- obtained by TMZ. Marc says over the last 2 years he spends an average of $305K A MONTH.
It all adds up so fast. Marc says he's spent around $400,000 on domestic help over the last 2 years. We're guessing that doesn't include shelling out for JLo while she did "Maid in Manhattan."
And then there's $220k for auto leases, $1 million for a California home and another $700K for 2 New York residences.
Dayanara wants her monthly child support upped from $13K to 113K.
Give a poor guy a break.

4/24/2014 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gretchen Bonaduce claims the guy she was dating threatened to kill her in the most ominous way ... by sending her texts telling her, "Enjoy that lunch, you never know, may be your last," and "remember John Lennon."
Gretchen -- who was famously married to Danny Bonaduce and starred in a reality show about their lives -- was having lunch with former "Top Model" Adrianne Curry earlier this month when she got a slew of texts ... she claims from then-boyfriend Kevin Kautzky.
Aside from the "lunch" and "Lennon" texts, he allegedly got even more direct and wrote, "When somebody decided to push your mother out of the window, she probably didn't realize that her prior meal would be her last."
Gretchen rushed to get a restraining order against Kevin ... ordering him to stay 100 yards clear of her and not to communicate.
Bitch Fight With Porsha
Hard to Watch
4/24/2014 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kenya Moore told our photog ... the epic "Real Housewives of Atlanta" brawl between Porsha Williams and herself was "disgusting" to watch on TV.
Kenya was tight-lipped on Porsha's glamorous mug shot -- taken after she was criminally charged with battery, but she did say she'd love to see her nemesis replaced with someone less violent.
It's also interesting how she responds to the $64K question ... whether she'll return to the show next season.
Bitch fights ... they're just awesome.
It's Expensive to Divorce Bethenny
... For Bethenny
4/24/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bethenny Frankel's divorce has dragged on so freakin' long that now she has to fork over $100k just to cover her soon-to-be-ex husband's legal fees -- even though they've yet to agree on terms for a divorce settlement.
According to court docs ... Frankel has to immediately hand over what amounts to an advance payment to Jason Hoppy's attorney. The docs stipulate the $100,000 will be subtracted from whatever financial settlement Jason ends up getting from Bethenny ... presuming they ever hammer out a deal.
Frankel filed divorce docs in Jan. 2013 ... and they've been battling over money and custody issues ever since.
Frankel sold the Skinnygirl brand for about $100 mil, so technically 100K is a drop in the bucket -- but since it's going to her ex's lawyer ... we doubt there's a smiley face on the check.

... I WANT MY SHARE
4/24/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Master P's estranged wife wants a $67 million parting gift from her marriage -- claiming she deserves a HUGE chunk of the rapper's empire ... which includes a small city worth of properties, a fleet of expensive cars, and more.
Sonya Miller just filed legal docs in the couple's bitter divorce, estimating the total value of community assets from the marriage at $178,743,300 -- including 31 properties, 13 cars, 45 companies, and other stuff. She wants nearly 40% of everything.
According to the docs, the real estate properties are spread across Cali, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, and Georgia -- she wants eight of them. She also wants one of their three large chandeliers (valued around $300,000 a pop).
Sonya estimates the value of Master P's businesses -- including No Limit Records -- at $136,101,000 ... and wants $54 million of that. She also wants $10 million of Master P's "Make 'Em Say Ughh!" energy drink company.
Other stuff -- Sonya wants her $28,000 wedding dress ... and ONE of Master P's 13 cars (the Escalade). Master P also owns a black Rolls, a green Bentley, a Porsche, a Jag, another Escalade, and several other ridiculous vehicles.
All told, Sonya is demanding $67,647,800 -- leaving Master P with a measly $111,095,500.
Lean Has 'F***ed Up' Rap Culture
I'm Glad It's Going Away
4/24/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lean is a great-tasting way to DIE ... this according to former addict Lil Boosie, who tells TMZ he SUPPORTS pulling codeine cough syrup from the market ... because it will save lives.
Boosie tells TMZ he nearly died 3 or 4 times from drinking lean and says it's "f***ed up a lot of rappers and the culture of hip hop." He says users don't realize something that tastes like Kool-Aid can be so addictive.
Boosie was reacting to the story we broke ... that Actavis is ceasing production of its high-end cough syrup because it's being widely abused to make lean, also known as sizzurp.
The rapper -- who tells us he's clean now -- spent 5 years behind bars on drug charges, including time for trying to smuggle codeine syrup into prison.
He adds, "Once you on, it's hard to get off ... it's damn near impossible."
Boosie and Nancy Reagan. Who knew?

Clooney's Biz Partner
George Wasn't Drunk When He Blasted Wynn
4/24/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney's biz partner insists the actor was NOT pounding shots before his nuclear blowout with casino mogul Steve Wynn -- and tells TMZ, "We weren't drunk."
As we reported, Clooney and Wynn (left) locked horns earlier this month at a fancy dinner in Vegas after Wynn called Obama an a-hole. Clooney shot back, calling Wynn the a-hole ... then stormed out.
Wynn claims things exploded because Clooney was slamming tequila -- but Rande Gerber, who was at the dinner -- insists, "No shots were had" ... and it was NOT a heated political debate.
Gerber says, "This wasn't about politics. It was about George standing up for a friend."
FYI, Clooney and Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) are partners in a tequila company called Casamigos. They were meeting with Wynn to discuss future business at Wynn's hotels, which already serves the brand.
Funny, we're told Wynn's hotels continue to stock Casamigos ... despite the blowout.

The women are pissed at Joan's comments on the "Today" show this week ... when she talked about her daughter's guest room, saying "Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space."
The women -- Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus -- came out swinging, saying they were shocked and disappointed at the "hurtful" comment.
Joan tells us she WON'T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding, "One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They're ok. I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars."
And Joan says, plenty of comedians have done schtick about tragic events like Hitler's terror and the sinking of the Titanic. Joan says, "The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL."
Stuck in Jail 'Til June ... At Least
4/23/2014 2:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown will rot behind bars until June -- at the very least -- because the singer's latest bid for freedom was just DENIED.
Brown -- who was jailed last month after getting booted from rehab -- was flown to D.C. and promptly jailed as he awaited trial in his assault case.
The trial was supposed to start today ... but it was just postponed until June.
Brown asked the judge in the Rihanna beating case to release him, but the judge just shut him down.
Translation: Brown will soon be flown back to L.A. -- where he'll remain in jail until June ... at the very least. It looks like he'll be flown back to D.C. on Con air ... a trip way worse than economy.
The stakes are high ... if Brown is convicted in D.C. ... the judge in the Rihanna case could violate his probation and sentence Brown to four years in PRISON.
Get Your Stuff ... And Get Out
4/23/2014 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Scandal" star Columbus Short is being allowed to return to his home -- after being banned from the premises for allegedly threatening to kill his wife -- but he won't have time to get comfortable ... a judge is giving Short just 2 hours at home to get his stuff ... and get out.
Short was in court today seeking permission to move back into his house after his wife obtained a restraining order, barring him from entering the home -- but a judge denied his request.
Instead, the judge gave Short 2 hours next Monday to go to the house and gather any belongings he needs ... and only with his attorney present.
TMZ broke the story ... Tanee Short got the restraining order, claiming Short had threatened to kill her during an explosive fight in their Chatsworth home April 7. Tanee claimed Short pinned her down, choked her, and threatened to stab her unless she admitted to having affairs.
She also claimed Short put a knife to her throat and threatened murder/suicide.
Tanee has since filed for divorce and wants sole custody of their 2-year-old daughter.
Producer Gary Goddard
I'm Not a Boy Rapist, Either
4/23/2014 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gary Goddard -- who has produced several big shows on and off-Broadway -- is now speaking out against allegations he participated in a Hollywood sex ring that victimized young boys.
Goddard's attorney tells TMZ, the allegations against the producer are "categorically denied."
As we reported, 31-year-old Michael Egan filed lawsuits against Goddard, "X Men" director Bryan Singer, TV producer Garth Ancier, and former president of Disney TV David Neuman -- claiming they sexually abused him as a young teen at various Hollywood parties and in Hawaii.
But Goddard's lawyer tells us, "Mr. Goddard was not in Hawaii with Mr. Egan. He did not molest or touch or annoy Mr. Egan or commit any of the acts alleged. Also, he did not furnish drugs or alcohol to any minor at any time." Ancier and Neuman have also denied the allegations.
The lawyer calls Egan's claims "so fantastical as to be unbelievable on their face."
