Keshia Knight Pulliam Wins Custody in Adultery Divorce Trial

4/23/2018 4:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam is now a single woman ... her divorce was just made final.

Under the terms of the divorce, she gets primary custody of their one-year-old daughter, Ella Grace. Ed Hartwell gets visitation rights. They had a fight over the child's last name -- each wanted theirs. In the end, they compromised on Ella Grace Pulliam-Hartwell.

He also has to pay $3,007 per month in child support.   

The divorce was granted on grounds of adultery and cruel treatment. Keshia was represented by Tanya Mitchell Graham.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Hartwell admitted during the trial he lives with his lover, Tonya Carroll, who's pregnant with his child. 

Another issue came up during trial ... Hartwell -- a retired NFL linebacker -- takes meds that impair his ability to make decisions for their child.

R. Kelly's Daughter I Feel Terrible About Sex Scandals But, He's Dad & We're Family

4/23/2018 11:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly's daughter is reluctantly sticking by her old man amid mounting sex abuse allegations that are reaching a breaking point ... 'cause she says that's what family does.

We got Joann Kelly -- who goes by her artist name, Buku -- in Atlanta Monday, where we asked about the ever-growing scandal surrounding her father, who's been accused of grooming young women to be "sex pets" while allegedly holding them against their will.

Joann tells us she doesn't want to speak too much on the matter, but you can tell the issue hits close to home. She does admit, though, to feeling "terrible" about the whole thing.

Seeing how Kelly's inner circle is reportedly falling apart -- his publicist, lawyer and assistant all quit last week, according to the BBC -- we ask if Joann's still close with her pops. Check out her response ... it's definitely not a ringing endorsement for Dad of the Year.

Kate Middleton & Prince William It's a BOY!!! Makes First Public Appearance

Breaking News

9:57 AM PT -- Kate and the new bouncing royal have made their first public appearance together!

Will was also there by her side for the big reveal on the steps of the hospital. Both mom and baby have been reported to be in perfect health.

Kate Middleton has just given birth to her third child ... and it's a BOY!!!

The Duchess of Cambridge popped Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The new royal was announced to weigh in at 8 lbs. 7 oz. by Kensington Palace. Prince William was at Kate's side for the birth.

As is tradition, the Town Crier announced the birth from the steps of the Lindo Wing of the hospital. The customary announcement -- complete with bell ringing and feathered cap -- was also made for Kate's other two births.

Kate and Prince William announced last September baby No. 3 was on the way but the announcement came only after the cat had been outta the bag. The royal family was seemingly forced to announce she was pregnant after canceling a public appearance due to extreme morning sickness.

She also suffered from morning sickness before giving birth to Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015. Btw ... baby No. 3 will be fifth in line to the throne -- after Prince Charles, Prince William and his 2 siblings.

Congrats!!

Jay-Z Blesses Cardi B's Baby Bump ... During Bey's Coachella Set

4/22/2018 1:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z appeared to give Cardi B and her forthcoming baby his blessing this weekend during round 2 of Beyonce's Coachella set ... a belly rub and prayer hands says as much, anyway.

Jay was spotted getting up close and personal with Cardi in the artist section early Sunday morning around 12:45 AM, after he'd performed a duet with his wife on stage. 

He affectionately grabs her arms and then places his hands on top of her ever-growing baby bump. Cardi was seated during the interaction -- ya know, 'cause she super pregnant ... AND about to perform for the second weekend in a row BTW. Girl needs her rest.

Oh ... Jay and Bey's daughter, Blue Ivy, was there too. She was watching her mom do her thing, but might've drawn a little attention herself with those stylish frames. 

Ex-NFL Kicker Jay Feely Gun in Daughter's Prom Pic Was a Damn Joke!

4/22/2018 11:52 AM PDT

Former NFL kicker Jay Feely is clearing up the controversy around a photo he posted with a gun at his daughter's prom date's side ... saying it was all a joke.

Feely tweeted a clarification Sunday about a pic he posted Saturday as he sent his daughter to her prom with a guy ... with Jay in between them and a pistol in his hand.

He says the pics was clearly meant as a joke, and that his kid had been dating the dude for at least a year. Feely also pointed out that the gun wasn't loaded and didn't have a clip inside, adding he didn't mean to be insensitive about the subject, which is a hot topic these days.

In his original post, Feely referenced a scene from "Bad Boys 2," in which Martin Lawrence's character intimidates a guy who comes over to take his daughter out on a date. Will Smith gets in on the interrogation, too, for a hilarious moment ... but a lot of folks didn't find Feely's take quite as funny. He was getting dragged on social media left and right.

Who knew joking around with guns would be such a lightning rod issue? 

Travis Barker Music Fest is Totally Family Friendly ... Breastfeeding Station Too!!

4/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker doesn't think there should be an age limit for rocking out, so he's throwing what could possibly be the most kid-friendly music festival ever, complete with a breastfeeding area for new moms.

Barker's Back to the Beach Fest is going down next weekend in Huntington State Beach in Southern California. Headliners include 311, Sublime With Rome, as well as the original Fishbone lineup, Barker playing with Goldfinger and loads more.

Kids under 10 get in free, which isn't unusual for music festivals, but BTTB doesn't want to exclude anyone, so they're setting up a special quiet zone for nursing moms.

That's not all ... there will also be a Lil Punk Zone where kids can rock out safely. We're told Barker got the inspiration from taking his own kids on the road everywhere and wanted other families to see what it's like to rock out with their little ones. All those diapers should also keep the porta potty lines down, too.

Mel B Daughter's Therapy Was My Idea!! Belafonte's Full of Crap

4/20/2018 3:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B says Stephen Belafonte is trying to pull a fast one by making it look like he decided to get their daughter into therapy, and she adds his brainwashing allegations are desperate.

According to new legal docs ... Mel B says she reached out to Stephen in late 2017 to get counseling for their 6-year-old daughter, Madison. Instead of agreeing and helping out, Mel claims Stephen waited a few months to file docs in which he accuses her of brainwashing Madison.

In her docs, Mel says therapy for their daughter was her idea all along -- so, she's not opposed to it. In fact, she even has suggestions for possible doctors for Madison to see.

As for Belafonte's brainwashing allegations -- Mel B says they're all nonsense ... and he has absolutely no evidence to support his claims Madison is acting differently toward him. 

Mel adds, they already have a custody plan in place and they should stick to it, because she's done nothing to alienate their daughter from him.

Jaime King Faces Attacker in Court ... Doing It For My Kid!

4/20/2018 8:02 AM PDT

Jaime King says she'll be in court everyday to face the guy who smashed her car window while her toddler sat inside -- and she's hellbent on getting justice.

Jaime says her 4-year-old son is suffering from PTSD after a homeless man jumped on her parked car earlier this month. The man smashed her rear and front windshields.

Paul Francis Floyd, is being charged with 3 misdemeanor charges, including cruelty to child by endangering health, and one felony count for vandalism.

Jaime's certain Paul knew what he was doing and while going to court is like reliving the whole ordeal, she says it's worth it for her kid. 

Sen. Tammy Duckworth Brings Her Baby to Vote at Work ... Thanks to HER New Rule!

4/19/2018 1:43 PM PDT

Sen. Tammy Duckworth just made history, baby ... by bringing her newborn daughter to Capitol Hill to vote on something, thanks to a new rule she helped push through the Senate.

Duckworth -- who just gave birth earlier this month -- wheeled herself onto the Senate floor Thursday in D.C., where she cast a vote on the confirmation of a new NASA administrator, Jim Bridenstine. She ended up voting nay ... but the guy got cleared with 50 GOP yeas.

Still, her presence was felt ... considering up until Wednesday, children of any age were not allowed to be on the Senate floor during votes. However, all 100 senators unanimously passed a resolution this week allowing an exception for newborns. 

Tammy spearheaded the initiative, not wanting to be away from her baby girl, but still seeking to carry out her duty as Illinois' duly elected Senator. Mission accomplished.

James Harrison Brady Retiring Wouldn't Shock Me ... BTW, Here Are My Plans!

4/19/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Harrison just hung it up, but could Tom Brady be next??

With rumors swirling on Brady potentially not playing this season, we asked Deebo himself -- Tom's teammate last year -- and he told us it would NOT surprise him ... given the sacrifices TB, Gisele and the kids make so he can play ball.

“That’s up to Tom and what decisions he and his family make as far as what he wants to do, and if he does want to continue to play, what he’s willing to sacrifice and the family is willing to sacrifice,” Harrison told TMZ Sports.

James would know -- telling us that's why he decided to retire earlier this week.

Specifically, the Pro Bowl LB says he's interested in introducing his 2 sons to tackle football -- and possibly even coaching them! 

Deebo says it's a tough decision for any parent to make given everything that's out on CTE -- but explained why he wants his sons exposed to it before they hit their teens. 

"Everything in life has dangers ... I'm not gonna live in fear of things that could possibly happen."

Kourtney Kardashian My 39th Bday is All About My Kids

4/18/2018 4:21 PM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian's ringing in her 39th birthday at a fancy Malibu restaurant, but she coulda gone to Chuck E. Cheese ... because she celebrated with all of her kids.

Kourtney had Mason, Penelope and Reign in tow as she left Taverna Tony Wednesday afternoon. Looks like Kourt and the fam enjoyed cupcakes during lunch, complete with candles ... although far less than 39 of 'em. Penelope got to do the honors.

She also got some bday love from new mom, Khloe ... who posted some fave shots of their sisterly adventures -- with the caption, "I can't imagine life without you!"

As we reported ... Kourt and the rest of the sisters flew to Cleveland to support Khloe during, and right after, she gave birth to True -- smack in the middle of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal

You'd totally understand if she forgot to give Kourt a birthday shout out -- but the sisters got each other's backs.

Florida Shooting Students Burning the Midnight Oil ... For Gun Control & School!!

4/18/2018 1:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Two familiar faces from March For Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement need to start #NeverSleepingAgain 'cause juggling gun control rallies with high school ain't easy.

We got Marjory Stoneman Douglas High juniors Cameron Kasky and Jaclyn Corin Wednesday at LAX ... and it was clear life hasn't slowed down for them, nearly a month after the march in D.C.

For starters ... they're in L.A. to participate in the ABC special "WE Day California" ... a summit for student leaders that'll also feature renowned speakers and celebs. While seniors like David Hogg are nearly done with school ... Jaclyn and Cam are still knee-deep in their books. 

They both admitted it's creating a challenge for them, and other Parkland kids -- how to balance school work, while remaining active in their now national movement.

In part, they say it requires some very understanding teachers, but the rest of it's on them -- and one of 'em seems to be handling it better than the other.

Khloe Kardashian Extremely Conflicted On Baby's Last Name

4/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian was horribly conflicted on what last name to give her baby girl in the wake of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal  ... before finally deciding to go with Thompson.

Our Kardashians sources tell us ... Khloe chose the name True about a month ago, and up until the cheating scandal broke -- it was a lock that True's last name would be her father's.

We're told that quickly faded after video from October surfaced -- days before Khloe went into labor -- of Tristan cheating on her ... and she was beyond conflicted on whether to go with Kardashian or Thompson when it was time to fill out True's birth certificate.

Our Kardashian sources say it took Khloe a couple days after True was born before she finally decided the right thing to do was give the baby Tristan's surname.

It's interesting ... someone close to Khloe placed an order for blankets and other baby stuff at Petit Tresor in Bev Hills. We're told the order was placed right when the scandal broke and the store was told not to embroider the initials until Khloe made her decision. The call was finally made Monday to use the initials TT.
