It's got to be Jennifer Aniston's worst nightmare ... another Angelina Jolie may be walking the face of the earth soon, because someone's in the market for an Angelina egg donor.

The UCLA Daily Bruin ran a classified ad Friday seeking an egg donor who looks like Brad Pitt's newly-minted wife.

The company that placed the ad -- Beverly Hills Egg Donation -- presumably has a client who wants their kid to be an outlier.

The ad is specific ... white, tall, slender, the right cheekbones and forehead. Anyone with the right stuff can make $30K for 2 cycles.

Period.

Devon Still's Baby Mama

I'm Not Trying to Ruin His Life

But I Need More Money

11/27/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126-devon-still-and-family-FACEBOOK-01Devon Still's baby mama says there's NO court order requiring the Cincinnati Bengals player to pay child support for their cancer-stricken daughter Leah ... but says the two had a "voluntary agreement" which Devon stopped paying in July. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Channing Smythe who says the two had worked out an unofficial financial arrangement ... but it fell apart over the summer when Devon wanted Channing and Leah to move to Cincinnati to be near him. 

"I don’t feel that it was right for me to move her," Channing says ... "[Delaware] is where all her friends and family are and this is where we have been building our life. He was very upset about that and that’s when he stopped giving me money."

Channing says Devon has been paying for some of Leah's clothes, medical bills and other things -- and she's "grateful" for all of the help -- but says she needs more money from Devon due to Leah's medical condition which prevents her from working. 

Channing says she has started the paperwork to get court ordered child support in Delaware -- but so far, they have not reached an agreement. 

Channing tells us Devon is a "wonderful father" to Leah and visits her almost weekly -- and takes her to doctor's appointments whenever he can. 

As for Still, he issued a statement saying, "I am not going to retaliate against the mother of my daughter ... I am going to continue to allow the court system to handle this matter, as it has been doing these past couple of months."

Exclusive Details

Three Dallas Cowboys legends are back on the same sideline ... rooting on their daughters who all play in the same elite youth soccer league ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Emmitt Smith, Tony Dorsett and Charles Haley -- together they have 9 Super Bowls, 17 Pro Bowls and 2 Hall of Fame busts -- and they get together every weekend as soccer dads. 

"[Our daughters] are out there ballin', Dorsett tells us ... "The apples don't fall far from the tree."

Tony -- who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in '94 -- says his daughter plays on the same team with Haley's kid ... and even though Emmit's daughter plays on another squad, "They go head to head sometimes."

"When we're together, we talk about football. It's not usually about the old days. We talk about what's going on in the league now," Dorsett says. 

Tony says the guys are all very supportive of each other's kids -- "All of the girls are very talented" -- but says Charles' daughter is a star among stars. 

Pretty cool, right?

Lindsay Left In The Dark

EXCLUSIVE

1124-michael-lohan-married-TMZ-01Michael Lohan has finally made an honest woman out of GF Kate Major ... but no one alerted his kids.

Lindsay Lohan's old man got hitched Oct. 30th in a private ceremony at Hillsboro Beach in Florida. It was so private neither Lindsay nor Mike Jr. were invited ... or even told.

Here's the thing. When Lindsay finally did find out ... she didn't care.

We're told Michael's motivation was his soon-to-be-born child. This is #2 for Michael and Kate.   

They've had a rough ride with multiple mutual arrests. Hopefully "till death do us part" comes naturally.

Halle to Gabriel

You're Trying to Make Our Daughter White!

11/24/2014 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1124-halle-tmz-02Halle Berry just took Gabriel Aubry to court ... claiming he's trying to make their 6-year-old daughter white.

Halle was furious Gabriel was straightening Nahla's naturally-curly hair, lightening it with highlights and she is convinced it's because he does not want the girl to appear to be African American.

Halle didn't show in court Monday morning, but her lawyer Steve Kolodny did, along with Gabriel and after a lot of arguing the judge ruled NEITHER Halle nor Gabriel could change Nahla's look from its natural state.

So the judge is allowing Nahla's hair to grow back naturally.

Score one for Berry.

1124-robin-thick-april-at-usc-game-wm-3Robin Thicke must be serious about his new girl ... because she's now hanging out with his kid.

Thicke, his boy Julian and his super young GF April Love Geary were snapped at the USC/UCLA game at the Rose Bowl Saturday night ... where they got a good view of the Bruins whooping the Trojans.

As TMZ first reported, while Thicke has been coy about his dating situation, 19-year-old April has been going full bore, posting photos that were snapped inside Thicke's home.

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Royce Reed

Also Investigated for Child Abuse

EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard Baby Mama Child Abuse
Dwight Howard's son has had a rougher time than anyone thought ... the baby mama who reported Dwight to Children's Services for belting their son was herself investigated for the exact same thing.

The Florida Dept. of Children and Families (DCF) got a call in February from 6-year-old Braylon's school, informing authorities the boy had been belted on the back of his neck and leg for using "potty words."  

According to docs, baby mama Royce Reed fessed up and said she did indeed belt the boy because he "dropped the f-bomb" in school. Authorities checked out the kid and there were no obvious marks ... she told them she only hit him once with a child fabric belt. The case was closed out, but school officials spoke with Reed and accused her of using excessive force on the child.

TMZ broke the story ... Reed called DCF in August, saying Howard belted Braylon badly ... and Howard subsequently copped to it.  Howard is currently the subject of a criminal child abuse investigation for the incident.

Musician Skylar Grey

Hey Kid, Quit Using My Fake Name

11/22/2014 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Skylar Grey NameMusician Skylar Grey is claiming a 14-year-old street artist has ripped off her name, and she wants him to change it ... or else.

According to a letter obtained by TMZ ... Skylar wants 14-year-old Skyler Grey (with an 'e') to go by a different name because it's causing confusion -- she suggests "Skyler Grey Arthurs" or "Skyler G" or just "SG."

Here's the irony ... Skylar Grey isn't even HER legal name. It's actually Holly Hafermann. Nonetheless, she's already trademarked it and used it in all her videos and marketing.

The REAL Skyler Grey just so happens to be a legit prodigy himself ... he's sold his street art to Snoop Dogg, The Game and other big names.

We're told Skyler the kid refuses to fold.  

You're move, fake Skylar.

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Throws Son's

B-day Party At Hooters

11/19/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1119-dwight-howard-son-instagram-01
A seven-year-old boy should be having his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese's, NOT Hooters ... but that's exactly what Dwight Howard's baby mama did for their son's 7th birthday. 

"Basketball Wives" star Royce Reed, the boy's mother, posted the photo on her Instagram showing Braylon grinning from ear-to-ear ... and it probably wasn't because of the wings.

As TMZ first reported ... Howard is angling for full custody, while simultaneously being investigated for child abuse.

In court docs, Howard has accused Reed of exposing Braylon to sexual situations. Howard claims his son has witnessed Reed engage in sexual acts with her "numerous companions."

We're told Howard believes this photo is just the latest example of his son being exposed to sex.

A source close to Royce says her son's birthday party was at a Monkey Joe's bounce house earlier in the day -- with his classmates -- and she merely stopped at Hooters for food. The source also says Royce has never had any man in and out of her house, and has never exposed Braylon to sex.

A rep for Howard tells TMZ, "Dwight isn't going to engage in the back and forth about his son in the media. He only wishes that his mother would do the same and protect the boy instead of exposing him.‎"

Tyga

Boycotts Club for

Banning Underage GF Kylie

11/19/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118_tyga_kylie_jenner_tmz-2Tyga pulled a no-show for a club appearance when the place shot down his demands to get his underage GF Kylie Jenner into the West Hollywood hot spot.

Sources at Greystone Manor tell TMZ ... Tyga begged and pleaded with promoters to get 17-year-old Kylie admitted -- calling several times throughout the day. We're told he even pushed his arrival time to 1:30 AM while trying to negotiate Kylie's entry.

When the club wouldn't budge -- y'know, because of the law and stuff -- he bailed. 

We're told Tyga pulling out of the event pissed off a liquor sponsor in a big way. The club is trying to reschedule, but since the 21-and-over rule isn't changing ... seems pretty hopeless. 

They may wanna call him back ... in four years.

EXCLUSIVE



A viral video of a baby drumming to a Pantera song rocks so hard ... the band's real drummer Vinnie Paul is sending the tot a mini-metalhead starter kit.

Vinnie tells TMZ ... he was so blown away by the clip of 8-month-old Wyatt faux-jamming (there's an adult moving his arms) to the Pantera classic "5 Minutes Alone" -- he reached out personally to the kid's parents in Kentucky.

Vinnie put together a $400 ddrum D1 starter kit for Wyatt -- 2 cymbals, snare drum, bass drum, 3 tom toms and sticks -- which he's shipping this week with a personal message.

"Walk" on, little Wyatt!

Kylie Jenner

Ticketed for Driving While Black

11/18/2014 5:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118_kylie_jenner_pulled_over_x17Kylie Jenner is getting to know the entire LAPD police force one by one ... because another cop just pulled her over and wrote her up.

The 17-year-old was driving her Range Rover in the San Fernando Valley when the patrol officer lit her up because her tail lights were not up to code. The whip was tricked out and the black covers over the red tail lights didn't cut it.

The non-moving violation is the latest in a string of vehicular hijinks ... she's been in 2 accidents, ticketed 3 times and sued once.

At least she's not dating a 24-year-old. Oh, wait ...

Dwight Howard

Now Under Criminal Investigation

For Child Abuse

11/18/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1117_Dwight-Howard_tmz3Dwight Howard is under criminal investigation for child abuse ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned the Cobb County PD in Georgia now has an active criminal investigation into allegations he beat his 6-year-old son Braylon with a belt buckle.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Dept. of Children and Families in Florida (DCF) determined there wasn't enough evidence of child abuse to go forward, but it turns out the incident occurred in Georgia. Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn't know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.

Law enforcement tells us ... Georgia cops asked Florida for the file, but the DCF dragged its feet and did not cooperate. So it turned into a cold case until Monday, after Cobb County detectives saw the TMZ Sports story summarizing a doctor's findings that Howard committed child abuse.

A Georgia law enforcement source tells TMZ ... "People who were not so forthcoming before today [Monday] have been." The source adds detectives did several one-on-one interviews Monday and say the case "has now been raised to top of the list."

Howard's attorney tells TMZ ... Howard's baby mama Royce Reed is "shopping her baseless allegations" to Georgia authorities even though Florida's Dept. of Children and Families found her claims had "no merit."

For the record ... DCF found the allegations credible, but concluded they did not meet the standard of proof required for formal action.

The attorney says he's confident Georgia will reach the same conclusion because "The truth is on our side."
