Chris Brown

Battle Over Royalty's Birth Certificate

4/25/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

And This Time I Call the Shots

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.

'Rupaul's Drag Race' Champ

Drag Dad Is Really a Deadbeat Dad

... Baby Mama Claims

4/25/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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

0423-darius-mccrary-tmz-01Darius McCrary should just leave a credit card on file with the Michigan court system -- he just paid dearly again ... this time for allegedly keeping his son too long on a Spring Break trip.

A bench warrant was issued for McCrary last week after baby mama Elizabeth Alanoly filed an emergency motion claiming McCrary didn't return their kid on time.  

According to court records, McCrary had to post a $15,000 bond to clear the warrant. We're told their 7-year-old son is back with Mom now.

Darius had to pay $5,500 just last month to Alanoly for back child support.

We've reached out to Darius' reps ... but no word back.

Hilary Duff Divorce

Child Custody Fight On

4/22/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Kris Jenner

Bruce Never Talked Transition During Marriage

4/22/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Aaron Hernandez

Victim's Mom Mulling Lawsuit

... Over Son's Murder

4/22/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-ursula-lloyd-GETTY-01Odin Lloyd's mother tells TMZ Sports ... she's still deciding whether or not she will file a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez ... a lawsuit that could potentially be worth MILLIONS of dollars.

With Hernandez having been convicted of murdering the former semi-pro football player, the odds are extremely good that Lloyd's family would win a civil case against him. 

And since Hernandez was an NFL star who made MILLIONS during his brief career ... there's real money on the line. 

But when we spoke with Ursula Ward this week, she told us she had not made up her mind about whether she will go through with the lawsuit. 

Ward wouldn't explain why she's on the fence -- but sometimes, grieving families would rather move on with their lives instead of reliving the nightmare in another high profile case ... no matter how much money is at stake. 

Wladimir Klitschko, Hayden Panettiere

Someone's in Trouble

4/21/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_wladimir_klitschko_baby_beach_water_waves_launch_2Wladimir Klitschko may be the heavyweight champion of the world, but he's about to get his ass kicked by his 5' fiancee.

Wlad took baby Kaya out into the Miami beach surf, while Hayden Panettiere was doing 'GMA' in NYC.

It looks like fun and games, but we're guessing Hayden will have issues:

-- the baby doesn't have a life jacket

-- Wlad is clowning off balance in the surf, with Kaya in a precarious position

-- she's not wearing a hat in the Miami sun

That said, dad is no ordinary father at 6'6" and 246 lbs. Kaya's in good hands. Of course, Hayden might not see it that way. 

Good luck Wlad ... we're rooting for you!.

Houston Family

Bobbi Kristina Breathing On Her Own ...

Browns Were Right

4/21/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-bobbi-kristina-instagram-02

The Houston family is now changing their tune, saying Bobbi Kristina is OFF life support, but they continue to maintain there's no real hope for recovery.

The Houston family now tells TMZ, Bobbi Kristina is breathing without the assistance of a ventilator. They say, "According to the doctors she's breathing on her own but the trach has to stay."

But the family still maintains Bobbi Kristina has "global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive."

It appears the Houston and Brown families have different ideas about how to handle the prospect of long term care ... something that is now a real possibility. 

Bobby Brown

Visits Bobbi Kristina

Conflict Remains Over Condition

4/20/2015 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0420-bobby-brown-hospital-meeting-doctor-fameflynet-01A pensive Bobby Brown met with doctors Monday to discuss Bobbi Kristina's condition.

Bobby was outside the DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Georgia, days after he announced during a concert that Bobbi Kristina was off life support and somewhat responsive. Bobby Brown's rep tells TMZ Bobbi Kristina's condition has improved and doctors say she'll have "a long life," although the quality of life will not be known for years to come.  

As we reported, the Houston family says it's not true ... they say she's still on life support and her condition has not changed at all.

We also got this pic of Pat Houston visiting Bobbi Kristina.

Cissy Houston

Bobbi Kristina's Brain Damage ... 'Irreversible'

Remains Unresponsive

EXCLUSIVE

0420_Cissy-Houston_bobbi_kristina_getty_instagramBobbi Kristina is suffering from irreversible global brain damage and is completely unresponsive ... so says her grandmother Cissy Houston

Cissy tells TMZ, "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me."

She squarely contradicts Bobby Brown, who claims Bobbi is off life support and somewhat responsive. 

Cissy tells us, "I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive."

Bobbi Kristina's grandma has faint hope, telling us, "We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers."

It's unclear why the families are so divided.

Browns Are Wrong

Bobbi Kristina Still Unresponsive, on Life Support

EXCLUSIVE

0420_bobbi_kristina_instagram

Bobby and Tina Brown are absolutely wrong ... Bobbi Kristina is not off life support and remains unresponsive ... this according to the Houston family.

Sources connected with the Houstons tell TMZ, they have no idea where Bobby Brown is getting his information that Bobbi Kristina was awake, nor do they know why Tina said she's awake and no longer on life support.  Gossip Cop first reported the conflicting positions between the Browns and the Houstons.

We're told the Houstons are clear ... "She's in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility." They say there is "minimal" reaction ... an occasional eye blink, but that's it.

The Houstons say Bobbi Kristina is still on a ventilator.

Bobbi Kristina

Aunt Claims She's

Off Life Support

4/20/2015 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0225-bobbi-kristina-instagram-01Bobbi Kristina's aunt is clarifying Bobby Brown's comment that she has awakened from her coma. 

Brown's sister Tina posted on Facebook, "[Bobbi] woke up and is no longer on life support!!!!!:):)God is good!!thanks for your prayers,,still a process,but she is going to be ok:):):):)."

The post dovetails with Bobby's comment during a concert Saturday, in which is he said, "Bobbi is awake. She's watching me." 

If true it's a stunning turn, given that doctors told the family there was no real hope.

BK has been in a coma since January 31.
