Gilbert Arenas Wanna See My $111 Mil NBA Contract?? ... Here It Is

10/25/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-launch-contract-gilbert-arenas-tmz-03Ever wonder what an $111 million NBA contract looks like?

Well, here you go ... courtesy of Gilbert Arenas.

The ex-NBA star filed the complete 2008 contract he signed with the Washington Wizards in his family law case ... a contract which was supposed to pay $111 mil over 6 years.

As Arenas put it, "Amnesty kicked in" -- and the payouts were stretched over 8 years instead. His final installment will hit his bank account on Oct. 31st.

Of course, Arenas -- who made more than $160 MIL during his career -- now says with no more NBA money coming in, he can't afford to keep his kids in private school.

The contract spells out exactly how much Gilbert got paid every year -- right down to the monthly checks.


Chris Martin My Kids Need Some Shine ... They Can Sing!

10/25/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are 'consciously' deciding to thrust their kids into the spotlight to show off their musical talent ... and this video explains why they're doing it.

12-year-old Apple and 10-year-old Moses performed at a Boys & Girls Club fundraiser in Malibu, which looked like it was in someone's backyard. She sang Ariana Grande's "Just a Little Bit of Your Heart" and he sang "House of Gold" by Twenty One Pilots.

It's pretty remarkable -- not only because the kids clearly have their parents' musical talent -- but because Gwyneth and Chris usually try to keep 'em out out of the public eye.

Can't hold 'em back at some point.

Matthew McConaughey & Son Levi Twinning!!

10/25/2016 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-Matthew-mcconaughey-Son-Run-AKMGSI-01Matthew McConaughey is already teaching his son, Levi, how you just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N ... the healthy way.

The two went for a mile run while on vacation in Honolulu, where the elder McConaughey was promoting the military's "Rock the Troops" concert over the weekend.

Levi, who's 8, barely broke a sweat, but can't say the same for Matt. He just keeps getting older, but the ... 


Brad Pitt I'm Not Answering Angelina's Divorce For the Sake of Our Kids

10/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-brad-pitt-angelina-joile-tmz-01Brad Pitt will not file a legal response to Angelina Jolie's divorce petition because it would set the stage for a nasty legal battle ... and he fears it would cause great psychological damage to their kids.

Brad's legal answer was supposed to be filed Wednesday, but the deadline came and went. Sources close to the case tell us ... Brad wants joint legal and physical custody, but if he actually filed papers it would draw the battle lines. Angelina wants sole physical custody, setting up a possible custody war.

Angelina could set the wheels in motion for a default judgment since Brad hasn't answered her petition, but we're told that is not going to happen. She agrees ... healing the family is the priority, not starting a war.

There's something else here at play. The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is still investigating the airplane confrontation between Brad and 15-year-old Maddox, and Brad will be in a much stronger position if DCFS closes the case before he files his answer.

Our sources also say there's a chance the whole divorce case could settle privately without any dueling divorce docs. And, we're told, on that goal both Angelina and Brad agree.


Brad Pitt First Face-to-Face With Maddox Since Plane Incident

10/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_brad_pitt_tmzBrad Pitt had his first visit in more than a month with his 15-year-old son, Maddox ... since their confrontation last month on a private jet ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Angelina tell us the 2 met Wednesday afternoon with a therapist present. There had been a plan in place for Brad and Maddox to reunite a while back, but we're told the therapist felt the timing wasn't right.

The sources say Brad has had visits with his 5 other kids before Wednesday, but the face-to-face with Maddox is a turning point.

As we reported, Brad and Angelina agreed to a temporary custody plan which the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services created, in which Angelina gets temporary physical custody and Brad gets visitation.

As we reported, DCFS is still investigating the airplane incident and the FBI questioned Angelina and the kids Tuesday in a fact-finding mission. Our law enforcement sources stress there is no FBI investigation ... just fact-finding.

Our Angelina sources say, even though she's headed to divorce court, she still wants their family to function with a fully involved father and mother.


Angelina Jolie and Kids Interviewed by FBI

10/19/2016 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019_angelina_jolie_fbi_tmz-2Angelina Jolie and her kids were interviewed Tuesday by 2 FBI agents ... primarily to determine where exactly the incident between Brad Pitt and 15-year-old son Maddox went down.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 2 FBI agents paid Angelina a visit at her Malibu home and spent more than 3 hours there. Well-placed sources tell us there is not an official investigation ... the agency is in a "fact-finding" stage to determine if there's evidence to warrant an investigation.

We're told the agents wanted Angelina and the kids to walk through the incident step-by-step, but they spent a lot of time trying to pin down the location of the airplane at the time it happened.

We're told it matters if the plane was not in U.S. airspace when the argument went down. The FBI also asked numerous questions about what happened on the ground when the plane refueled in Minnesota. There's some question as to whether Minnesota officials might have jurisdiction.

Sources tell us Angelina was cooperative but her endgame is for the whole thing to just go away.

As we reported, it's highly unlikely the FBI will press the case.


Jackie Christie I'd Gladly Help My Daughter with Medical Bills ... If She Asks

10/19/2016 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-takari-lee-christie-jackie-christie-TMZ-FACEBOOK-01'Basketball Wives' star Jackie Christie says she did NOT refuse to pay for her granddaughter's medical bills after the child was badly burned in a daycare accident ... and says she's more than willing to help. 

Jackie's been taking heat ever since her estranged daughter, Takari, set up a GoFundMe page last month to raise $3,000 to help pay for treatment for her 8-month-old daughter. 

Takari said she was suffering serious financial hardships and was having a hard time finding the money to get her kid the proper help. 

Matt Barnes and Evelyn Lozada reportedly kicked in more than $3,000 each -- but people are mad at Jackie, claiming she should have paid for everything in the first place. 

But Jackie tells TMZ Sports ... Takari has cut HER off and never reached out for help in the first place. Had she called, Jackie says she would have been more than willing to fork over a check. 

Jackie also says she's given Takari a ton of money over the years and she should be more than able to cover a $3,000 bill. She feels Takari went public with the money plea to try to embarrass Jackie. 

Long story short ... Jackie says if Takari truly needs help, pick up the phone and call your mother. 

Johnny Damon I Got a SECOND Vasectomy 'First One Didn't Work All the Way'

10/19/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There will be NO EIGHTH CHILD for Johnny Damon ... 'cause the ex-MLB star says he just got snipped for the second time ... after his first vasectomy didn't quite hold up.

The former Red Sox stud was at the Mohegan Sun 20th Anniversary party with his wife, Michelle -- when they were asked if they were planning to add another Damon to the already massive family!

That's when Johnny revealed that he already tried to put a stop to his procreating with a vasectomy a few years ago -- but it didn't work ... and Michelle got pregnant with his 7th kid!

Damon says he had to go back and have a doctor rework his man plumbing -- "Hopefully, this one worked."

FYI, Damon's kind of an anomaly -- 'cause less than 1 PERCENT of vasectomies fail the first time ... according to


Ed Hardy's Christian Audigier Sorry, Kids ... I Left My Sperm Behind!!!

10/19/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1018_Christian-Audigier-tmzEd Hardy's late, great designer, Christian Audigier, left his $250 million fortune to his wife and 4 kids ... but if any kids are born from the sperm he left behind, they also get a piece of the pie.

Yes, sperm is front and center in the the legal docs filed with the court. Nathalie Sorensen, Christian's widow, has dibs on the sperm and can "use however she sees fit."

Nathalie was Christian's longtime GF and married him on his death bed.

Here's the rub. If Nathalie uses the sperm to have kids, they will get the same share of the estate as Christian's living children, which means with each baby they get less.

Nathalie hasn't said whether she'll grow the fam, so for now the sperm sits in a freezer at a cryobank, and his children worry.

NFL's Donald Penn Allegedly Knocked Up 'Bad Girls Club' Star ... Wife Pissed

Exclusive Details

1017-donald-penn-camilla-poindexter-domonique-wife-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Oakland Raiders star lineman Donald Penn is in a BAD situation -- his wife says he knocked up a reality TV star ... and she's PISSED. 

Dominique Penn laid it all out on her Instagram -- saying Donald (who's reportedly made $47 million during his NFL career) secretly hooked up with and impregnated Camilla Poindexter ... who appeared on multiple seasons of "Bad Girls Club."

"My husband cheated on me with this hood rat," Dominique posted.

"She knew he was married from jump!! He knew that he was married! They did this to my family! You don't get brownie points for f***ing a married man for a check thinking he was gonna leave his wife!"

Camilla had a daughter back March -- and Dominique is pretty convinced Donald is the father. Donald already has 3 kids with his wife. 

"He has 4 kids now (paternity test pending) to worry about," Dominique wrote. 

Despite all of that, Dominique says she's standing by her husband -- explaining, "my husband married a strong woman, and even at his weakest points today, I encouraged him to go play [on Sunday]!"

"I uplifted him and I told him as his friend were gonna get through this!!! As a result to all you hoes out there, never think for one second a man will never come crawling back to his wife. In most cases like mine, THE WIFE ALWAYS WINS."

Sources close to Camilla tell us she is adamant she NEVER tried to shake anyone down for money. She simply wants Donald to continue to support their daughter ... and that's it.

Kimbo Slice's Son I Love Antonio Brown's Cleats ... Now Go Ball Out!!

10/15/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Antonio Brown's tribute to the late Kimbo Slice just got the stamp of approval from Kimbo's son ... who says he's proud to see his father honored in such an awesome way.

TMZ Sports spoke with Kevin Ferguson Jr. -- a.k.a. Baby Slice  -- about the kicks ... and what it means to him to have one of the NFL's best show love to his pops.

"It feels good, man ... it lets me know that my dad touched a lot of people."

The clip's pretty cool ... Kevin has a message for Brown. He also previews his pro MMA debut at Bellator 162 next week ... and it doesn't sound promising for the dude steppin' into the cage with Baby Slice.


Dennis Rodman My Son's WAYYY Better Than I Was At BBall!!

10/15/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

HOFer Dennis Rodman is one of the greatest rebounders ever ... but he's not even the best hooper in his family ... 'cause Dennis says his son's a "way better" player than him.

TMZ Sports saw Rodman -- a 5x NBA champ -- in L.A. earlier this week ... and asked the "Worm" about his teen son, D.J. Rodman ... who's a beast on the court.

D.J. -- who plays at Corona del Mar H.S. in California -- is only a sophomore. Still, the way Rodman describes his son, the kid's gonna be rockin' an NBA uni one day soon.

Check out the clip!

Uma Thurman Arpad Wants More Custody? He Cancels On Our Kid All the Time!

10/14/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1014-uma-thurman-arpod-busson-gettyUma Thurman's baby daddy doesn't deserve more visitation with their daughter -- because she says he's been a flaky father who has rarely seen the girl.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... when she and ex-fiance Arpad Busson head to court in a few months, Uma will argue Arpad cancels his scheduled time to see their 4-year-old "7 times out of 10."

We're told Arpad is the one who's asking the judge for more time, but our sources say these are just "bullying tactics." Our sources say he gets a significant amount of custodial time currently, yet doesn't come close to taking advantage of it.

Sources say Uma wants to co-parent with Arpad, but only if the agreement is healthy for the whole family.

We're told when it comes to sharing custody, either she or a nanny has to take the child to London or the Bahamas, where he lives, because he won't take the time to pick her up.

On a separate note ... we're told Arpad wants Uma's engagement ring back. But she's gonna fight it because she claims it was gifted outright after the engagement was cancelled.

Uma's rep had no comment. We also spoke with Arpad's lawyer, who also had no comment.
