Keyshawn Johnson Accused of Knocking Up Side Chick ... Key Calls BS

9/21/2017 9:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshawn's Johnson has struck again ... allegedly. 

The ex-NFL star has been hit with paternity docs by a 35-year-old woman who claims 45-year-old Key knocked her up back in 2016 -- and she's demanding child support for her 4-month-old son. 

But Key says the allegations are 100% false. 

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman has demanded a paternity test to establish Keyshawn as the father -- and once it becomes official, she wants at least $4,346 per month in support. 

The rub ... Keyshawn is still legally married to another woman, Jennifer Conrad, and was at the time of the alleged conception. 

Interesting note ... Jennifer had initially filed for divorce in March 2015 -- but they reconciled ... until August 2016 when she told TMZ Sports the divorce was back on for good.

At the time, it was unclear why the reconciliation went south.

We spoke with Key's attorney, Aja Mann, who tells us, "The allegations are absolutely false."

8-Year-Old Football Protesters Props from T.I. ... 'Support Their Passion'

9/21/2017 6:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I. says he's GLAD the parents of an 8-year-old youth football team supported the players' decision to take a knee during the national anthem ... saying it's important for people to use their platforms. 

FYI, the Junior Comanches youth football team in Cahokia, Illinois followed Colin Kaepernick's lead during the anthem before a game on Sept. 17.

The coach of the team insists the players came up with the idea to support demonstrators upset with the not guilty verdict in the trial of a St. Louis cop accused of murdering a black man. The coach says the parents and coaching staff supported the idea. 

Now, T.I. says he didn't know about the protest before Wednesday night -- but salutes the parents for nurturing the passion of the children. 

"I think parents are just supposed to support the passion of the child."

As for critics who say politics should be left out of sports, T.I. disagrees in a big way. 

Simon Cowell When Life Gives You Lemons...

9/20/2017 6:50 AM PDT

Dream scenario for a bunch of kids pouring cups of lemonade ... Simon Cowell rolling up in his Bronco with a bunch of dough!

Simon and girlfriend Lauren Silverman stopped at the makeshift stand which the squad set up on a corner in Beverly Hills ... pretty genius.

Going rate for a cup is usually a quarter and it looks like Simon and Lauren handed over much more than that without taking any lemonade, so it was purely a donation.

Respect the hustle. 

Eagles' Joe Walsh I'm Not Joe Walsh!!! (That Dude's from Illinois!)

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Walsh wants everyone to know -- HE PAYS HIS CHILD SUPPORT!!! ... unlike another Joe Walsh.

We got the famous Eagle Monday at LAX and asked about former Illinois GOP Congressman Joe Walsh, who was so behind on child support he had the distinction of being the only U.S. Representative to have his wages garnished.

Joe's taken a ration of crap from people who confused him with the deadbeat dad ... it's pretty clear ... Joe (the musician) is getting pretty damn tired of the confusion.

Keyshia Cole Emmy Night Duet Makes Girl's Wish Come True

9/18/2017 12:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshia Cole trusted a 12-year-old amateur singer to help her belt out a song at a post-Emmys bash ... and the result was simply awesome.

Keyshia performed her song, "Trust," Sunday night at the Golden Soiree at Viva Hollywood -- and she invited a 12-year-old named Serenity, who happens to be in the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

We're told Serenity's a huge fan of Keyshia's and had requested to sing with her -- a wish that was granted by Jimmy Iovine's son, Jamie ... who's close pals with Keyshia.

As you can see, the duo was a hit with the crowd ... and Keyshia even gave a special shout-out to Serenity and Jamie afterward.

Breaking News

Hey WNBA (hell, maybe NBA), Kobe Bryant's daughter is coming to dominate you all ... here's video of the making of a new Mamba -- and it seems like the snake doesn't slither far from the father.

Kobe posted video of his 11-year-old daughter, Gianna, getting some work in ... and that work was learning some signature Bryant moves -- the same moves that dominated the NBA for 20 years.

Bryant explained the workout in one of his captions, saying they were both inspired to get up and sweat by the upcoming WNBA Finals rematch ... and debuted a new nickname for her -- "Mambacita."

Yeah, it's on. 

Chester Bennington Widow Posts Vid of Him with Fam ... Great Mood 36 Hours Before Suicide

9/17/2017 11:21 AM PDT

Chester Bennington appeared happy and engaged with his own family less than 2 days before his hanging suicide ... based on a video his widow shared.

Talinda Bennington posted a video of Chester hanging out with one of his sons eating jelly beans ... she says it was shot just 36 hours before his death.

She captioned the vid saying "This is what depression looked like to us just 36 hrs b4 his death. He loved us SO much & we loved him." 

We broke the story ... Chester committed suicide by hanging in July ... much like his good friend and fellow musician Chris Cornell did just a couple months before.

Talinda seems to be making a point here -- even though Chester might have been deeply depressed ... he was able to mask it well enough around those closest to him. She's already taken steps to prevent copycat cases by putting together an org to help fight suicide.

Fergie Ditches Josh's Wedding Ring ... I Got 4 New Ones!!!

9/14/2017 1:35 PM PDT

Fergie's fully owning the single life down in Brazil ... in a micro-mini outfit and no Josh Duhamel wedding ring.

Ferg touched down in Rio Wednesday, and tried to draw eyes away from her leggy leopard-print outfit and knee-high boots by holding up her left hand. She flaunted 4 rings spelling out F-E-R-G. Mind you, this was the day before she and Josh announced their separation.

As we reported, they split earlier this year, and say they took time to adjust before announcing it.

Fergie's down there to perform in the Rock in Rio music festival. Josh is back home with their son, Axl, and was seen Wednesday ... still wearing his wedding band.

Jesse Williams Thank God Almighty ...

9/13/2017 7:24 AM PDT

Jesse Williams is basking in bachelorhood after settling his child custody feud with his estranged wife.

Paps spotted the actor Wednesday at a gas station in Los Feliz, where he was rockin' a free t-shirt -- literally. The rest of his outfit also says as much.

We broke the story ... Jesse struck a custody deal with his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, where they'll both share joint legal custody over their 2 little ones ... with conditions, of course.

The kids might be off the table now, but only time will tell if he's home free for the rest of his divorce.

EXCLUSIVE

Jean-Claude Van Damme's youngest son got busted for allegedly holding his roommate at knifepoint ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 21-year-old Nicholas Van Varenberg was arrested Sunday in Tempe, AZ. We're told cops got a call to check on him because he'd punched the elevator in his building. Cops say they found a trail of blood leading to his apartment, and after speaking to him and a roommate, discovered Nicholas injured his hand.

Officers left, but 20 minutes later, the roommate ran downstairs, claiming he'd escaped the apartment where Nicholas was holding him at knifepoint. He told officers Nicholas was pissed he'd opened the door for them.

Cops immediately searched the apartment, and say they found the knife and marijuana.

Nicholas was booked for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful imprisonment, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Anna Faris & Chris Pratt Take Turns with Jack

9/11/2017 7:25 AM PDT

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have clearly made their son a priority in their separation.

Anna spent Saturday with 5-year-old Jack. She took him to an L.A. carnival.

Sunday was Chris' turn. The two were spotted grabbing some ice cream.

The couple announced their split last month after 8 years of marriage. Neither has officially filed for divorce and there's always a chance they could get back together ... but they've both been out without their wedding rings, which is not a hopeful sign of reconciliation.

Eazy-E's Daughter Happy Bday, Pops ... I'm Rollin' with My Own '64! (Sorta)

9/7/2017 5:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eazy-E may be gone, but he's certainly not forgotten -- his daughter made sure of it by posing for a sexy photo shoot with a Chevy Impala on his birthday.

Ebie slapped on some lingerie and posed in front of the classic car her dad helped make more famous -- all to celebrate his Thursday birthday. Eazy would've been 53.

We're told Ebie did the shoot with legendary West Coast photog Mike Miller, who worked with her pops and other '90s rap stars.

Full disclosure: She posed with a '63 Impala, not a '64. And this'll blow your mind -- Eazy actually drove a '63 himself. Guess it just rhymed better.

Ebie's gone to bat for her deceased father before, so it's no surprise she was down to do something to remember his name yet again. 

And remember we do ... 

Prince George Nice to Meet You, Miss ... I Run This Kindergarten Now

9/7/2017 6:46 AM PDT

Prince George marched into his first day of kindergarten (they call it Primary School) Thursday like a boss -- or like a guy who's mingling with his subjects.

Prince William held lil Geo's hand as they walked into Thomas's Battersea -- a fancy private school near their Kensington Palace home. The likely future King of England displayed impeccable manners, naturally, as he met the headmistress.

Duchess Kate wasn't able to attend because she's stuck at home with severe morning sickness with her third pregnancy.

Today, kindergarten ... tomorrow, all of Great Britain.
