My Dad Ate My Dog

0428-manny-tmz-01

Manny Pacquiao ran away from home at the age of 12 ... when he caught his father eating his pet dog ... this according to his trainer Freddie Roach. 

Roach was talking to Yahoo! Sports about how the boxer's family struggled with poverty in the Philippines when he was a child -- and apparently, things were so tough ... Manny's father cooked the family dog for food. 

When Manny realized what had happened, he ran away from home -- and began to live on the streets.

"He slept in a cardboard box. He fought his way through all this, turned pro at 14, and look at the man he is today," Roach said. 

BTW -- Manny has a new dog named Pacman ... and NO ONE is allowed to eat it.  

Bruce Jenner

Kids Deliver Shocking News

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

4/27/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.

Mariah Carey

Rips Nick Cannon

You're Broke and Alone!

4/27/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Forget Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem ... the new king of diss rap is now ... Mariah Carey!!!

Mimi's new song "Infinity" just dropped and she absolutely tears Nick Cannon apart.  

Talkin' 'bout you're mad
Could it be that you just lost the best you've ever had

His fame:

Boy you actin' so corny like Fritos
Wouldn’t have none of that without me, though

And his money:

Is it lack of ice got you so cold?
Have you ever felt this on your own?
Why you tryin' to play like you’re so grown?
Everything you own boy you still owe 

It wasn't long ago that Nick was leaving the door open for reconciliation ... but this song is the equivalent of her slamming that door in his face. And dead bolting it. And putting on the chain.

Khloe and Lamar

Not Ready for Divorce

The Door's Open a Crack

EXCLUSIVE

0424-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

She also says it's all very new, and they're still adjusting.

Darius McCrary

My Son's Paralyzed with Fear

Claims He's Being Abused

EXCLUSIVE

Darius McCrary Son AbusedDarius McCrary refused to return his son to his baby mama because he claims the boy has been abused by his stepdad, but he lost the fight and the boy is hysterical with fear.

We're told everything unraveled last week at LAX, when he was putting his 7-year-old boy on a Michigan-bound plane to return to his mom.  The boy had a tantrum and cops were called.

According to the police report, McCrary told officers the boy was terrified to return home because his stepfather had physically abused him back in January.  Cops then spoke with to the boy and got the same story. 

Cops got the message and allowed Darius to leave the airport with his son.  The Dept. of Children and Family Services was notified, and that triggered a court battle.

Darius tried to convince an L.A. County judge to award him full custody, but the judge decided the case could only be handled by the Michigan courts and the kid had to be returned to his mom.

So Friday afternoon, Darius met the baby mama at the Hollywood Police Station and handed off their son, who became an emotional wreck.

Darius plans to carry on the fight in Michigan.

We've reached out to the baby mama's attorney for comment ... so far, no word back.

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.

It's really an incredible story ... how Kanye sat Kim down and explained how being true to yourself is everything in life.

Diane Sawyer's special is just amazing.  Bruce's words are moving, thought-changing and it has to be the biggest moment ever for a lot of people who are really struggling.

EXCLUSIVE

Anna Chickadee Cardwell Pregnant AgainAnna Chickadee Cardwell is pregnant ... but this time around grandma won't be in charge.

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.

EXCLUSIVE

0422-hilary-duff-mike-comrie-tmz-02Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody. 

In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.

Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.

Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.

EXCLUSIVE

0421-kris-jenner-bruce-jenner-01

Kris Jenner was in the dark about Bruce's desire to become a woman during their entire marriage ... this according to sources directly and closely connected to Kris.

Our sources say Kris says Bruce did speak with her 25 years ago about his feelings, but she says he talked about his "tendency" to dress like a woman ... not to become one.  

We're told Kris insists the subject never came up again during their entire marriage. She also says she never saw Bruce dressed as a woman during their entire relationship.

Our sources connected with Bruce tell a different story ... that she knew full well he was very conflicted about his gender. 

Kris tells our sources the subject of sexual transition did not come up until after they were divorced. In fact our sources say Bruce told the girls about it before Kris.

One other thing ... we're told reports that Kris might take legal action against Bruce if he speaks negatively about her are untrue.
