EXCLUSIVE

0424-chris-brown-king-ba-vs-battle-royalty-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01

Chris Brown is real upset he's not getting credit where it matters ... on his daughter's birth certificate.

Sources connected to Brown tell us, he found out recently the "father" on baby Royalty's birth certificate is listed as Brazil Riesling, aka King Ba.  

TMZ broke the story, 8 months after Royalty was born, DNA tests revealed Chris was the papa.

He's trying to establish a relationship with his daughter -- even trying to get baby mama Nia Guzman to move to L.A. -- but his efforts have been thwarted by Ba, who still considers himself the dad. Ba, who is still with Nia, has been taunting Chris with pics of himself and the baby.

Chris now has his lawyer in the act, negotiating with Nia and Ba to change the birth certificate to list him as the biological father.  If push comes to shove, it will end up before a judge.

Chickadee tells TMZ, she and husband Michael are 6 weeks pregnant. If Mama June reads this it will be the first time she'll learn she's going to be a grandma 2 times over.

June was calling the shots after Anna's first baby, Kaitlyn, was born, but this time June will be allowed to visit when Anna's around, but that's it. 

Anna says she doesn't trust her mom's judgment anymore, because when she was younger, June would leave her with various people for long periods of time. One of them was child molester Mark McDaniel

Anna says the only men who she'll trust with the new baby will be her husband and Uncle Poodle.

But Anna knows the value of a buck ... she says that there's one thing Mama June will come in handy for ... diaper coupons. 

The woman loves a good bargain.

... Baby Mama Claims

EXCLUSIVE

0424-tyra-sanchez-YOUTUBE-01"Rupaul's Drag Race" champ Tyra Sanchez loved talking on the show about being a good dad, and he's even producing a documentary about it -- but his baby mama claims his actions prove otherwise.

Sanchez's baby mama Cynthia recently hit him with child support papers for his 9-year-old son, Jeremiah. According to the docs, he has to turn over his financial records, so the court can figure out how much support he needs to pay.

According to our sources, Sanchez is currently paying zero support and has no custody of Jeremiah. We're told he only sees his son roughly once a month.

In 2012, Sanchez started shooting "Drag Dad" ... a documentary about his relationship with his son, but it's unclear if he's completed the project.

We reached out to Tyra, but ... no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

0424-dan-bilzerian-nascar-TMZ-01Dan Bilzerian is new face of NASCAR ... well, at least for one race ... 'cause the billionaire playboy's grill will be on the front hood of a car competing in Saturday's Sprint Cup Race ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

So, how the hell did he make that happen? Dan's a huge poker player --and he recently beat the snot out of BK Racing owner Ron Devine.

But instead of forcing Ron to pay up in cash, Dan wanted to go all Ricky Bobby ... so he made a deal to get his mug plastered on one of Ron's NASCAR whips, which will be competing at Richmond International Speedway.  

The final product is hilarious ... with Dan's giant bearded face right on the front of Matt DiBenedetto's #83 car. He also added a sticker of Dan's pet goat Zeus to the rear for good measure. 

Baaaaaaad ass.

Kris Jenner allegedly swindled a homeowner who thought he was renting his home to her for a small, demure dinner party, when it was really a wild bash with loud music, a stripper and a hundred hormonal teens. 

Gabriel Fedida claims in a new lawsuit Kris and her realtor made a deal to rent the Hollywood Hills house for $10k for a 15 person dinner party. Fedida says to his horror Kris used his home as the backdrop to celebrate Kendall's 19th birthday, with 100 of her closest friends.

Fedida says there was ear-shattering music, general rowdiness and strippers!  

When the dust settled, Fedida says there was $101,450 in damage. He says the house is now out of commission, so with lost rent he wants $150k. 

We reached out to the Kardashian camp ...  so far no word back.

George Foreman

Mayweather Is Better Than Muhammad Ali

EXCLUSIVE

0424-floyd-mayweather-muhammed-ali-george-foreman-TMZ_GETTY-01George Foreman says Floyd Mayweather is RIGHT ... telling TMZ Sports, "Pound for pound, Floyd is better than me and Muhammad Ali ever were."

Mayweather received tons of criticism this week after saying HE should be considered the greatest fighter of all time ... and now, it seems Foreman's backing him up in a major way.  

"This is a better generation BY FAR," Foreman tells us ... "They're smarter, they're stronger, they're overall just better fighters."

Of course, Foreman is extremely qualified to weigh in on the subject, having fought Muhammad Ali in the famous, "Rumble in the Jungle" in 1974 ... in addition to his 80 other pro fights. 

"We were good and we liked the attention that we got. But boxing is on a different level. This is an amazing generation."

As for the fight, Foreman says he's rooting for Mayweather -- and believes he's the better fighter -- but says he thinks Manny will ultimately win the fight. 

"Mayweather is the superior talent, but the best guy doesn't always win ... Floyd's gonna have his guard down. Manny's gonna take the first couple of rounds and there won't be enough rounds for him to catch up."
