Waka Flocka Flame I'd Run the Smartest Day Care for Kids!

5/23/2016 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Waka Flocka Flame not only doesn't care about people ripping him over the video of his niece in a dog cage -- he insists he can teach the haters a thing or two about child care!

We got the rapper at LAX where he laughed off the wave of criticism he got after posting that video of the little girl locked in the training crate. Waka says it's well-known that all the kids in his family love him -- and, in fact, he has some ideas about how to run a day care center.

Take a look, it's not at all what you'd think. Prime case of "never judge a book" ... 

Celine Dion Shocked by 'Package' at BMAs

Exclusive Details

0523-celine-dion-and-son-billboard-awards-GETTY-01Celine Dion had no clue her 15-year-old son would be presenting her ICON Award at the Billboard Music Awards ... even though producers talked about it right in front of her.   

That's because they used a code word for Rene-Charles during rehearsals. Our production sources tell us Celine's son was referred to as "the package" all weekend. This was the first time he had been to one of his mother's award shows ... which added to the surprise for Celine, we're told. 

For keeping the secret, the teenager scored an awesome reward -- a backstage pic with Rihanna.

Oh, and Mom was really happy. That was good too.  

What a night! #billboards2016

'Teen Mom' Star Gary Shirley Keeps The Kid ... and Scores Cash!!

5/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519_gary-shirley_amber_portwood_daughter_tmz_instagram"Teen Mom" OG star Gary Shirley is set for a great Father's Day ... he's keeping primary physical custody of his daughter with Amber Portwood ... and mama's paying child support. 

Gary and Amber have been locked in a custody war for years over 7-year-old Leah.

Amber lost primary custody in 2011 and then went to prison for drug possession the following year. Amber says late last year they agreed to joint legal custody with primary physical custody going to Gary. They have since been fighting over child support.

The parents were in an Indiana court last week and struck a settlement. Gary will retain primary physical custody. As for child support ... Amber has to fork over $1,200 per month.

They both say they can put their beef behind them and properly co-parent their kid.

EXCLUSIVE

0519-dream-getty-tmz-01Girl group Dream is reuniting for a tour, but all the bottles they'll be popping on the road have nipples. 

The late '90s/early 2000s pop band is joining 98 Degrees and Ryan Cabrera for the MY2K Tour, and the ladies will be on full mommy duty based on their rider ... which looks like a Baby Depot shopping list. 

Their backstage demands include size 3 diapers (preferably from Honest Co.), alcohol-free baby wipes, and Plum or Earth's Best brand organic baby food. Members Holly Blake-Arnstein and Melissa Schuman have 3 kids between them.

Interestingly, there's no request for nannies. We see an OT opportunity for Drew and Nick Lachey!

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather knows how to throw a party ... just ask his daughter, who turned 16 and got a shindig suitable for royalty.

The bash set Floyd back 7 figures. It went down Saturday ... a BBQ in the afternoon followed by a blow-out at the Mirage Grand Ballroom in Vegas. Performers -- Drake and Future, of course.

#Future! Happy Sweet Sixteen @moneyyaya

A video posted by Tank (@therealtank) on

Iyanna scored a G-Wagon from dad, and a video wishing her happy b-day from Justin Bieber.

Her friends shouldn't bother to even try one-upping her.

Kim Zolciak My Daughter's Face Is No Piece Of Work

5/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520_Kim-Zolciak_instagramKim Zolciak is coming to her daughter's defense, denying rumors surrounding 19-year-old Brielle's face in a family vacay photo.

Kim tells TMZ ... Brielle's face has NOT been under a scalpel, and the ONLY work she's had are the lip fillers she got during a mother-daughter trip last year.

Kim deleted the IG pic with Brielle and hubby Kroy Biermann after trolls went off about Brielle's face ... which mom insists only looks different because of the angle, and Brielle's lack of eye makeup.  

In her defense, Brielle does look a little different in this video from the same night. 

Future I Got a Steak in My Kid

EXCLUSIVE

Future exercised his court-certified parental rights by taking his baby boy to a very grownup steakhouse.

Baby Future got a taste of Mastro's Thursday in Bev Hills, after being guided inside by daddy. TMZ broke the story, Future scored a huge victory this week when a judge awarded him joint custody. Ciara was gunning for sole custody, claiming her baby daddy was unfit and a bad person.

Meanwhile, across town, Ciara and Russell Wilson dined at Katsuya in Hollywood, but had nothing to say to photogs about anything.

Louis Tomlinson Baby Hand Off With Baby Mama ... Here, He's Yours Now

5/20/2016 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-tomlinson-jungwirth-akm-01Fresh off his Mexican vacation, Louis Tomlinson got a fresh dose of reality when baby mama Briana Jungwirth handed over their 4-month-old son Freddie.

Looks like Louis is on daddy duty at least through the weekend ... the exchange with Briana went down Thursday afternoon outside a Starbucks in Thousand Oaks.

Louis' rented a home in nearby Calabasas for Briana and Freddie, so it's unclear why they'd make the exchange in a parking lot ... then again, when you're raising a little tyke, got to fit in those Starbucks runs somehow.

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale Hoops Spring Eternal

5/19/2016 12:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-gwen-stefani-gavin-rossdale-kids-AKMGSI-01Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale put their differences aside in the name of basketball ... and co-parenting.

For the first time since their divorce, the exes were seen together Wednesday -- just feet apart -- at their son Kingston's hoops game. There were smiles, from Gavin at least, but they were hardly chummy. More like cordial.

Exes playing nice ... it's catching on.

Barry Bonds Calls Racism On Daughter's Private School ... White Kids Rapping N-Word

5/18/2016 9:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0518-bonds-kids-tmz-yt-01Barry Bonds is outraged over a video of several white kids who attend his daughter's fancy Brentwood private school using the n-word while rapping along with a popular song. 

The 26-second clip -- posted by Brentwood Students Against Racism -- shows several young white teens singing along to A$AP Ferg's, "Dump Dump" ... which features the lyric, "I f***** your bitch, n****."

The video got to Barry, whose daughter, Aisha, attends Brentwood School ($37,000 a year) -- and he tweeted, "I am sad that i had to see this at my daughters school. #Racism #Fixit #Suspension."

He's not the only one calling for action ... a Change.org petition was launched and already has more than 400 signatures.  

Not everyone is on the warpath -- a student who wished to remain anonymous spoke with NBC4 and condemned using the n-word, but said the kids should NOT be punished. 

"It's a small segment of the school that is making a big fuss over nothing ... Some of the extreme activists on campus are calling singing along to a rap song a 'hate crime' or 'hate speech' but that is a load of hogwash."

The school has called the lyrics “offensive and inconsistent with our core values."

School officials add, "We are investigating this insensitive behavior, will address the situation directly, and will respond seriously.”

Waka Flocka Flame Puts Little Girl in Dog Cage 'I'll Bond You Out'

5/18/2016 7:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Waka Flocka Flame played make-believe with a little girl -- as in, make believe you're in jail ... locking the crying toddler in a dog crate. 

The little girl had tears in her eyes as she reached out between the bars for someone to free her. Waka asks if she "wants out of jail," and then says he'll bond her out.

Even more shocking ... Waka recorded the whole scene and posted it on Snapchat. It's unclear if the girl, who seems less than 3 years old, is his daughter. As far as we know .. he doesn't have any biological kids.

Some people are going OFF on Waka on social media ... others are laughing it off as a joke.

update_graphic_red_bar

9:35 AM PT -- Waka just posted an explanation, saying his niece had put herself in the dog crate. His rep says the whole thing was "taken out of context. He found she had accidentally locked herself inside. Waka was simply letting her out."

The rep says he thought it was an adorable family moment and decided to post it. Waka is clearly pissed anyone would think he's locking up kids ...

Courtney Stodden's Husband Yeah, I'm the Daddy! I Have Strong Swimmers

EXCLUSIVE

0518-stodden-hutchinson-tmz-01Doug Hutchison has no doubt the bun in Courtney Stodden's oven is 100% his, because he insists he's the only one bangin' her. 

Doug tells TMZ he's well aware many people are wondering who knocked up Courtney -- but he has a very direct message for the doubters: "Trust me: my spermatoza are the only swimmers surfing up that stream. Aloha!"

Classy.

This will be the first child for 55-year-old Doug ... same goes for 21-year-old Stodden.

No word if ice cream was present during the spawning.
