Shaquille O'Neal

I'm Jealous Of My 15-Year-Old Son

60 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

After 4 championships, 15 All Star games, and a bajillion dollars ... Shaquille O'Neal says there's still another basketball player he's jealous of -- his 15-year-old son.

The Diesel was DJ'ing a party for the MyVegas casino app when we asked about his stud of a son Shareef ... and what it's like to watch everyone freak out over the hoop skills of a different O'Neal. 

Check out the clip -- Shaq keeps it super real ... saying that there are times he's a little jealous of his offspring ... mainly because the little O'Neal got famous much quicker than the big one.

He should also be jealous of Shareef's shooting ability ...

EXCLUSIVE

0702-bobbi-kristina-getty-02It's pretty disgusting but also not unexpected ... someone is shopping a pic of Bobbi Kristina laying at death's door in a hospice. 

The photo was shopped to us ... we passed. It was taken earlier this week at the facility outside of Atlanta. A woman is hovering over Bobbi Kristina in the photo ... we're told it's a family member. 

As for who shot the photo ... we're told it's "an extended family member."

The pic is being shopped to multiple magazines and websites, and we're told there's interest.

Chris Brown's Baby Mama

Money's Not the Issue ...

He's Pissed Royalty's with His Mom

7/2/2015 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_nia_guzman_chris_brown_instagram_TMZChris Brown had a $10k agreement in place with his baby mama, Nia Guzman … but when she shipped little Royalty off to hang with Chris' mom, he cut her off. 

Sources close to Nia tell TMZ ... Royalty's parents finally came to an agreement on child support ... settling on $10k per month from CB, starting July 1. As we reported, Chris' camp said Nia initially wanted $15k, but he only wanted to pay $2,500.  

We’re told the new deal blew up though, when Daddy wanted Royalty this week -- but she was already hanging with grandma in Virginia. Since relations between Chris and his mom have been bad for years now ... our sources say Chris got pissed.   

We're told Nia's claiming this is the first time she's ever denied Chris visitation, but looks like once was enough. We broke the story ... Chris is filing to establish paternity in court, so a judge can settle their child support and custody issues. 

According our sources, Nia never wanted to go to court because she didn’t want to seem like a gold digger. 

Chris Brown

Files Paternity Docs

I've Had It With My Baby Mama!

7/1/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown has had it with baby mama Nia Guzman's child support and custody demands, so he's asking a judge to lay down the law once and for all.

Chris and Nia have been at war over 1-year-old Royalty. She's demanding $15k a month in child support, way more than Chris says is fair. 

We've learned Chris just filed legal docs in Houston to establish paternity. That will give him the right to fight Nia over support and custody.  

Chis has been paying Nia what he believes is a fair amount -- she claims he's been paying $2,500 a month. He wants a judge to set the figure, which he's confident will be closer to his number than hers.

Chris also wants a judge to establish clear custody guidelines. He says Nia has been denying him the right to see his daughter, so he wants a judge to set her straight.

Bobbi Kristina

Family, Not Oprah

Took Heroic Steps to Save Her

EXCLUSIVE

0701-oprah-bobbi-tyler-getty-tmz

Bobbi Kristina's family is pissed over reports that Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry orchestrated a Hail Mary to save BK's life ... when they had nothing to do with it.   

Sources close to the Houston and Brown families tell TMZ ... it was Pat Houston -- and not O or TP -- who organized a medevac airplane to bring BK to meet with a specialist in Chicago. 

We're told the family feels the report makes them seem like they're relying on celebs to take care of BK ... when that just isn't the case. 

As TMZ previously reported, once the specialist told the family there was nothing to be done ... they decided to take BK off all medications and allow her to die in peace.

Sherri Shepherd

Settles Divorce

Rolls Over on Child Support, Sorta

7/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630_sherri_shepherd_lamar_sally_tmzSherri Shepherd's nasty divorce and custody battle is finally over ... and stunningly, she has agreed to pay child support for the kid she disavowed from birth ... but with a catch.

Our sources say, Sherri and estranged hubby Lamar Sally have struck a settlement agreement in which the ex-'View' co-host will pay $4,100 a month in child support. The monthly obligation increases to $4,600 when the kid turns 13.  

Remember, Sherri fought Lamar tooth and nail in court, claiming he defrauded her into getting a surrogate to carry a baby for the purpose of getting child support.

Now for the catch. According to the settlement agreement, Sherri is allowed to pursue her fraud claim and if the appeals court rules in her favor, her child support obligations will disappear. 

And there's a Sofia Vergara twist ... the couple has embryos in storage and Sherri wants them destroyed. Lamar is undecided. According to the settlement, if Lamar chooses to bring the embryos to term, Sherri will not have to pay child support.

Sherri's not walking away completely empty-handed ... she'll get to hold onto the rights to her show, "Funny Mothers" which is currently in development.

Pat Houston, Tina Brown

Lock Hands

As Bobbi Kristina Slips Away

6/30/2015 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Houston and Brown families came together again Monday as they prepare for the death of Bobbi Kristina.

Pat Houston left the Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta, hand-in-hand with Tina Brown, Bobby Brown's sister.

The families were in a bitter feud for months over the care and the estate of Bobbi Kristina, but it appears there's at least a temporary detente.  

Bobbi Kristina was taken off all life-sustaining medication keeping her alive last week after doctors told the families there was nothing more they could do for her.

Bristol Palin

So This Pregnancy was Planned

And I Don't Regret It

breaking news

0628-bristol-palin-TMZ-03Bristol Palin makes no apparent sense ... now she says her latest out of wedlock baby was planned.

Bristol just posted what looks squarely inconsistent with what she wrote when she announced her pregnancy. She says in her latest blog post, "This pregnancy was actually planned."

Bristol -- who became an abstinence spokesperson and urged women to prevent such pregnancies -- says there's a big difference between her pregnant at 17 and 24. 

It's unclear how this was a mistake if it was planned, and the regret that laced her previous sentiments is now gone. She also says she can't wait for baby #2.

The only possible explanation we can think of ... maybe she and her fiancé got pregnant in anticipation of marriage but then they broke up.

Bristol ends by saying, "Deal with it." We're trying.

In Final Days

6/28/2015 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobbi Kristina's family came together Saturday as they kept a vigil for her.

Pat Houston comforted Tina Brown outside the Peachtree Christian Hospice near Atlanta. It's the first time Pat and Tina have been seen together since Bobbi Kristina was admitted to the hospital back in January. The two families have put their differences aside, at least for now.  

As we reported, Bobbi Kristina has been taken off life-sustaining medication and it's only a matter of time until she passes.  

Tori Spelling to Candy

Hey Mom ...

Charity Begins at Home!

6/28/2015 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0628-candy-spelling-tori-spelling-together-WIREIMAGE-01Tori Spelling and mommy Candy Spelling came together Saturday night, looking like one big happy family. The one with the sparkling dress is really, really rich.  The one with the braids is selling used pots and pans.

Candy, her son Randy, Tori, Dean and their kids were all at a charity event for Better Educated Students for Tomorrow.  

As we reported, Tori and Dean had a fire sale on Father's Day on their front lawn, unloading everything in their San Fernando Valley rental that wasn't nailed down.

Candy, who is reportedly worth hundreds of millions of dollars, has had a rocky relationship with her daughter.  

Maybe Candy's in the market for some used books.  Every little bit helps.

La Toya Jackson

I Believe That's Michael in the Clouds!!!

6/27/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

La Toya Jackson is a believer, and seems to think the eerie image of Michael Jackson in the middle of a thunder storm is the real deal.

We got La Toya and ex-fiance Jeffré Phillips were leaving Macau restaurant in Hollywood -- which they raved about -- when our photog showed M.J.'s older sis the pic.

La Toya doesn't think it's a mind trick at all.

As for her and her ex-fiance, they're together-ish, but they seem to have different views on the relationship.

Conrad Hilton

Dad Helped Cops Subdue Him

Conrad Hilton
was in such bad shape during his arrest Monday at his ex-girlfriend's home ... police needed his father's help to get him in custody. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... police rushed to Hunter Salomon's family home after Conrad broke in, and he was so out of control Rick Hilton was called to come over and help.  When Rick arrived he offered to go in with cops and help calm his son down. 

Once inside, Rick got Conrad to lower the volume enough so cops could get him on the ground and handcuff him

Hunter's mother, actress E.G. Daily, was the only person home when Conrad crashed his way in.  We're told he followed her around  as he called out for Hunter. 

As for criminal charges ... Hilton caught a huge break.  The L.A. City Attorney won't charge him for violating a restraining order because there's no proof he was served.

Conrad has been charged with trespassing, which could land him in jail for 6 months.

MC's Daughter's Sweet 16

Quit Texting, Start Dancing Kids!

EXCLUSIVE


Even Snoop Dogg has to fight like hell to keep teenagers' attention -- as he found out when he got on the mic for his daughter's Snooper (yeah, we said it) sweet 16 party.

Cori Broadus and her friends were like most teens at the Monday night bash -- heads buried in their phones, avoiding the dance floor ... even though papa Snoop was urging them to get up and party.

Fear not though -- Snoop found the right old-school jam to got everyone going. Watch the vid ... Snoop's mix, and some shirtless male dancers ... helped keep the floor packed. 

One thing never in doubt -- Snoop had a blast ... as always.
