Damon Dash

Loses Custody to Rachel Roy

4/20/2015 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420_Rachel-Roy_damon_dash-2
Damon Dash
 just lost custody of the daughters he shares with ex-wife Rachel Roy, and it's probably all news to him ... since he didn't even show up for the hearing. 

Roy just got sole legal and physical custody of 15-year-old Ava and 6-year-old Tallulah. Dash also wanted full custody.

The former couple each accused the other of being an unfit parent. He claimed she drove drunk with one of the girls, and threatened to cut him with a knife. She claimed he smokes weed around the kids. She said all the women and drugs were a bad influence on their daughters.

The judge clearly sided with Rachel, ruling Dash only gets supervised visitation.

Roy also got a three-year restraining order against Dash.

Mariah Carey

Eat Your Heart Out Nick

I'm Not Coming Back!

EXCLUSIVE

0417-sub-mariah-carey-tmz-01
Mariah Carey is clearly influenced by a much younger singer, because she's saying she'll never ever ever get back together with Nick Cannon.

We know Mariah has seen our video of Nick, telling us he's not closing the door on the possibility of giving their marriage another try.

But sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ, she's out of that game. She likes Nick, but there's no chance of a romantic reconciliation. 

She's not in the market for anyone right now. Mariah has a residency in Vegas that's just weeks away. She's also into raising the twins. When she's not working she goes to Eleuthera, her private Island in the Bahamas.

It looks like she may have a case of post breakup hotness, right?

Kylie Jenner

Girls Want Her Fat Lips!!!

4/20/2015 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner pretty clearly has a fan base that wants her lips, whether they're real or not.

Truth be told, our office is divided. The guys think these girls in the video are mocking Kylie by putting their lips inside a bottle to swell them up, but the women in the office say the girls are trying to be just like the youngest Jenner. Since the men here have never been teenage girls, the women win.

The hashtag, #kyliejennerchallenge, is blowing up.

BTW Kylie has insisted in the past, "These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting ... Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16."

David Beckham

I'm 52 Times Cooler

Than My Son!

4/17/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooklyn Beckham is developing quite a following on social media, but he's nowhere close to his father David ... which pops was sure to remind him of ... in the most embarrassing way possible.

The video's hysterical ... 16-year-old Brooklyn posted an Instagram video to celebrate crossing the one million line. David just had to poke his head in and put his son in his place ... by reminding him that 52 million people follow him on Facebook. BTW, David inflated it by 2 mil.  

Brooklyn's reaction is classic.

Reality's a bitch. 

Chris Brown

I'm In The Pink With Royalty

4/16/2015 8:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0416-chris-brown-royalty-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Brown's not letting some thirsty boyfriend of his baby mama get in the way of his daughter, because he's daddying out in a big way. 

Chris posted a pic of him snuggling his 10-month-old daughter Royalty. It's a good assumption he dressed her ... because they're both wearing the same Pepto pink.

As TMZ reported, the boyfriend of baby mama Nia Guzman has made rumblings that he was taking over as the dad, but Chris has very clearly drawn a line in the sand.

Kid's got awesome hair.

REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin

Heard It From My Son ...

Bleep Her Right in the Bleep!

4/14/2015 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Cronin -- lead singer of '80s rock group REO Speedwagon -- heard the words straight from his own son's mouth ... and still couldn't believe it -- but it is one of the funniest celeb kid moments ever.

Cronin was shopping with his wife and kid when he and our photog started riffing about the lyrics from his hit, "Take It On The Run" -- and that's when his son pounced.

The kid upstaged dad by dropping the six-words that have been haunting live TV reporters for a while now -- but his tops 'em all ... mostly because of Kevin's jaw-dropping reaction.

You gotta see it -- he's probably grounded for life, but the total shock and awe on Dad's face might be worth it.

Dwight Howard's Baby Mama

Our Son Is Still Terrified Of Him

Dwight Howard's ex Royce Reed is FURIOUS that the NBA star is off the hook in his child abuse case ... telling close friends their 7-year-old son is still "terrified" of his father. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Howard was investigated by the Atlanta Police Dept. for allegedly hitting his son with a belt buckle last year. They ultimately decided to drop the case. 

Now, we've learned Reed is fuming over the decision -- with one source close to Reed telling us, "She's extremely upset by the way the system neglected to defend her son."

"She never asked for Dwight to be arrested. She asked for him to get help and take parenting classes. Her child is terrified of his father."

We reached out to Dwight's camp for comment -- and his attorney told us, "Several law enforcement agencies have thoroughly investigated the allegations and all decided against filing charges."

"It is sad that Royce Reed continues to use her son as a pawn with the media, despite court orders prohibiting her from doing so."

Kylie Jenner AgeKylie Jenner hopped in a time machine, and POOF -- just like that she looked like a real life regular 17-year-old again ... a much different look than she's been flaunting lately.

Kylie was refreshingly makeup-free while hanging out with her sister Kendall ... who was doing a
photo shoot Tuesday in Malibu. 

In recent weeks she's tried out a lot of different looks -- some with less success than others -- but this one might be most revealing of all. Imagine that ... a 17-year-old who actually looks 17.

'Better Than Me'

EXCLUSIVE

The axle doesn't fall far from the tree ... especially when the tree is a skateboard legend -- so says Tony Hawk who tells us his son Riley is a BETTER skater than he is. 

It's hard to believe ... considering Tony is the greatest to ever hop on a board -- but the 46-year-old icon says his 22-year-old son is already a STUD on wheels ... and he's getting better. 

"My son is already better than me in a lot of ways," Hawk says ... "He's more of a street skater. He's way more technical. He hits the handrails, the ledges and stuff." 

Question is ... could Riley hit a 900 like his daddy?? 

Check out what Tony has to say about that. 

And then watch Riley's skate video below -- the guy can shred.
