Jeremy Renner's Ex

I'm Afraid Our Kid ...

Will Drown At His House

10/9/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_jeremy-renner_Sonni-Pacheco_tmz_splashJeremy Renner's estranged wife thinks his pool is a death trap for their 2-year-old daughter because he won't install a safety fence ... so she's fighting him in court over it.  

Sonni Pacheco's attorney was in court Wednesday in L.A., and told the judge Jeremy's koi pond and pool lack protective fencing. Sonni's afraid little Ava could fall in and drown before Jeremy gets to her.

Renner's side doesn't think a fence is needed because his laser detection system will alarm him if Ava were to fall into the pool or the pond. 

They're also fighting over social media -- Sonni's uncomfortable with Jeremy posting pics of Ava.

We're told the custody battle's gotten so hostile, with neither side budging ... the exes are now willing to go to trial. 


The Kids ARE Mine!

Paternity Docs Sent to Wrong Earl Simmons

10/9/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-dmx-tmz-01-DMX almost got a free pass on his latest paternity case, because the docs went to the wrong person ... someone unlucky enough to share X's real name!

We're told Earl Simmons from Massachusetts got docs in the mail from the Florida Dept. of Revenue, informing him he'd have to start paying child support to 2 of DMX's kids.

1008-sub-dmx-tmz-01-Yadira Borrego -- X's ex -- tells TMZ she filed the docs to establish paternity with the state, so DMX can pay child support through the proper legal channels ... and avoid another jail stint. She says he already supports their kids, but it's been off the books.

The person who's really screwed is the faux DMX, who works in the biomedical field. Poor guy's got 2 kids of his own, and we're told Florida is insisting he take a DNA test to prove he's not the real Ruff Ryder.

NFL's Desmond Clark

Video of High School Tirade

... Over Alleged Racism

10/8/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained explosive video of ex-NFL tight end Desmond Clark GOING BALLISTIC at officials at a Chicago area high school after his son was allegedly mistreated because he's black. 

According to police, it all went down on August 29th at Vernon Hills High ... where Desmond's 17-year-old son was blocked from participating in a school lip sync event because of a previous code of conduct violation. 

Desmond's son claims an administrator demeaned him in front of other students -- calling him a "criminal" -- so he called his parents who came rushing to the school. 

You can see in the video ... Desmond's wife Maria got so HEATED, Desmond had to literally pick her up and remove her from the person she was screaming at. 

Desmond -- who played for the Bears from 2003 to 2010 -- comes back into the room and begins to yell. Cops say he was calling out school officials ... claiming his son had been the victim of racism for years and his family was sick of it. 

Several people in the room gave Desmond an ovation at the end of his rant. 

Eventually, cops arrived to the scene and spoke with the Clarks for more than an hour. They left that day without incident ... but Desmond and his wife were hit with criminal charges in the following days. 

Both Desmond and his wife were charged with disorderly conduct -- Maria was also hit with an assault charge. They were arrested on September 11th and were later released. 

They have since pled not guilty and are due back in court later this month. 

Desmond has since been banned from school grounds -- his lawyer says, "They're afraid of him because he's a big black man."

We reached out to the school for comment -- so far, no word back.

While they can't reveal their clients' names, they did tell us what they generally recommend: When dealing with a crazed guman you only have 2 choices ... fight or die.

Yes, that sounds a lot like Carson's advice, for which he's caught tons of heat. Clarke and Cardoza have some tips for the good doc too.

1005-tom-cruise-isabella-cruise-GETTY-01Tom Cruise did not go to his daughter's wedding, but we found out he was nobody special, because none of the parents -- on either side -- were invited.

There are reports Tom snubbed 22-year-old Bella, who married Max Parker last month. Sources connected with Tom and Bella tell TMZ, she and Max wanted a super small wedding in London with a few friends and that was it ... no parents were invited.

We're told Tom was not only cool with the decision, he footed the bill for the wedding and party at the fancy schmancy Dorchester hotel.

Some media reports suggest Tom stayed away because Max is not a Scientologist. We're told that was never an issue. We're told Tom and Max get along well ... Max and Bella spent Thanksgiving and XMAS with Tom.

10/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-maddie-ziegler-birthday-dinner-INSTAGRAM-01Maddie Ziegler just turned 13 and if you're wondering what a kid who's starred in 3 Sia music videos and a reality show gets when they reach teen-hood ... ice, as in a pair of diamond stud earrings.

Ziegler's family surprised the "Dance Moms" star with a birthday party at their family's favorite hibachi restaurant. We're told the youngster was punked by her family and friends, who all profusely apologized saying they couldn't make it out for her birthday.

But when Maddie showed up at the restaurant ... her BFFs Nia, Kendall and Mackenzie from the show all yelled SURPRISE!!! We're told 2 dozen people were in on it, even Abby Lee Miller.

After the group sang happy birthday, they took down a cheesecake. And to top it all off she also got what every other 13-year-old out there wants ... an Apple Watch. 

Next stop for the youngsters ... L.A., where they'll be filming the new season of "Dance Moms."

When we were 13, we ate pizza and played Nintendo.

It seems Paris is hooked up with the guy she's with, and it's interesting to see 13-year-old Blanket, who has flown under the radar since his dad's death.

Baby #1 Is a

True Outlaw

9/30/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-naya-rivera-ryan-getty-01"Glee" star Naya Rivera and husband Ryan Dorsey might be huge Clint Eastwood fans because their first baby has a definite tie to the ole gunslinger. 

Naya and the "Justified" star just had their first kid -- a boy born on September 17 -- and according to the birth certificate ... named him Josey.

Josey Hollis Dorsey ... in full, came into the world at the ever popular celeb birth spot  -- Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.

The name doesn't appear to have any family significance for Ryan or Naya ... so, the most famous male Josey we can think of is ... Clint's character in "The Outlaw Josey Wales."
