Halle Berry

I Got Proof

Gabriel Bleached Nahla's Hair!

EXCLUSIVE

1205_nalas_brush_2
Halle Berry
says she has the smoking follicle to prove Gabriel Aubry bleached and damaged her daughter's hair ... and the proof is in Nahla's hair brush.

TMZ broke the story ... Halle hauled Gabriel into court, claiming he was straightening and lightening her hair to make her appear white. Gabriel denied using chemicals and said the lightening was from the pool and sun.  

Halle submitted documents to the court from Microtrace, a forensic consulting lab. Halle gave them a pink hair brush with strands of Nahla's hair.

The company analyzed the hair and concluded there was evidence it was chemically treated. The lab went on to say the repeated use of chemicals took their toll, writing there was "extensive damage ... likely the cumulative effect of repeated exposure to numerous gentle bleaching treatments."

The judge ruled neither Halle nor Gabriel could mess with Nahla's hair, and based on pics of Nahla and Gabriel from this week ... it looks like her hair is going back to normal.

Gabriel Aubry

Halle and Nahla's Hair Can Both Relax

12/5/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Gabriel Aubry Daughter HairGabriel Aubry's night out on the town was really hairy ... courtesy of 6-year-old Nahla.

Gabriel and Nahla dined at a L.A. restaurant, and it's the first time we've seen her since Halle Berry hauled him into court last month, claiming Gabriel had straightened her hair and lightened it to make her look white.

The judge ordered both Gabriel and Halle to leave Nahla's naturally curly hair alone, and it looks like that's exactly what's happening, although a cynic might say Gabriel is trying to manually do the job again.

We've learned Gabriel NEVER used chemicals on Nahla's hair. It was all courtesy of a blow dryer. What's more, we're told Gabriel thinks Halle is being ridiculous and is just trying to keep the custody war going over nothing.

Lorenzo Lamas

Becomes Primary Parent of his Kids

Shauna Sand Crushed

EXCLUSIVE

1203-lamas-sand-tmz-01

Lorenzo Lamas won a big victory in his never-ending war with ex-wife Shauna Sand ... he effectively became the primary parent of their 3 daughters.

A judge radically changed the joint custody arrangement Wednesday from 50/50 to the 3 girls living full-time with Lorenzo, while Shauna gets them every other weekend.

The judge was swayed by declarations filed by the 3 girls -- ages 17, 15 and 13 -- all of whom said they desperately wanted to live with their dad because their mom constantly brought new boyfriends to live with them and verbally abused them, calling them c**** and bitches.  

The kids also said their mom rented out their bedrooms and 2 of them ended up sleeping on the sofa and the third slept alone in the guesthouse.

Shauna was sobbing after the ruling came down, but the girls -- all of whom were at the courthouse -- were ecstatic.

Mariah and Nick

We Still Break Bread as a Family

Mariah Carey
and Nick Cannon have quietly figured out how to remain a family for the sake of their kids ... and they successfully spent the first big holiday together since they separated.

Mariah made it SEEM like Thanksgiving was Cannon free ... posting a pic of her in the foyer of a home.

But we know not only was Nick there ... it was HIS L.A. home.

Our Carey/Cannon sources say their relationship was extremely toxic when they were together, but they actually get along as friends now and both are committed to the welfare of their 3-year-old twins.

We're told Thanksgiving was calm and happy, although Mariah and the kids bolted for a hotel after the meal.

As for how the kids are doing ... we're told they're not really conscious or affected by the separation, because they're used to being cared for by one parent or the other ... interaction with both Mariah and Nick was infrequent over the last 3 years.

Lil Wayne's Daughter

My Mom Bought the Ferrari

Not Weezy!

12/1/2014 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne Daughter CarsLil Wayne and his ex Toya Wright battled for their daughter's affection this weekend -- and Toya was the clear winner ... because she got their daughter a much cooler ride.

As we previously reported ... Weezy's daughter Reginae Carter was gifted two cars for her 16th birthday -- a Ferrari GTO and a BMW SUV -- but the big question, which parent bought which ride?

Sources close to the family tell us Toya and her husband Memphitz purchased the GTO ... and they had Wayne's blessing before making the purchase.

We're told Wayne, Toya and Memphitz all agreed Reginae was a capable driver who could handle such a powerful car -- even though her day-to-day whip will be the BMW Weezy bought.

Beats having to borrow the family car.

Lil Wayne's 16-year-old daughter can put a bumper sticker on her new BMW that reads, "My other car is a Ferrari!"

It's insane ... Reginae Carter celebrated her Sweet 16 in Atlanta with a baller party featuring a mini-concert by Nicki Minaj, as Kandi Burruss, Tiny Harris and Fantasia Barrino looked on.

And get this ... Reginae scored a Ferrari GTO ... AND a BMW.

Unclear if each of her parents bought her a car -- Toya Wright was also there with husband Memphitz.

There will be some serious shaming Monday in the school parking lot.

Sophie B. Hawkins Split

If You Don't Want Custody ... I DO!!

EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Mathison from "Homeland" should have been married to Sophie B. Hawkins -- because her kid would have a real parent who actually wanted the kid.

Sophie has just filed legal docs, gunning for custody of her 6-year-old son Dashiell. She shouldn't have any problems, because her soon-to-be ex domestic partner, Gigi Gaston, has already filed her own docs saying she's washing her hands of the whole full-time child rearing thing.

Based on what we see it looks like Gigi will end up with some visitation, but Sophie will take the reins.

50 Cent's Son

My Famous Dad Makes Me a Target

... On the Court

11/29/2014 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

112614_50cent_sports_launch50 Cent's son can hoop -- and mixtape footage showing him ballin' out went viral this week -- but Marquise Jackson says sometimes having a famous dad can work against him on the court. 

The 18-year-old prep basketball star appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" on Reelz this week and said he's sometimes targeted on the court by rivals looking to make a name for themselves. 

But as Marquise says he welcomes the challenge because "at the end of the day I show that I can play."

Jackson says he hopes the publicity from the mixtape can help him lock up a spot with a big college program -- and says he's hopeful he'll land a scholarship. 

Check out the clip -- dude's a really humble guy ... except he brought out the trash talk when we asked if he could take his dad on the court.

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. 
1126-angelina-jolie-sperm-donor-SUB-AD-01
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."

With Mad Mario Kart Skills

EXCLUSIVE

112714_waka_flocka_launchWaka Flocka Flame grew up on video games ... but he just met his Mario Kart match -- a 9 year-old boy who LOVES talking crap after beating his ass!

Waka hit up an event for Project Cry No More Wednesday in Compton ... and that's where the rapper was challenged.

You gotta watch the video -- the 9 year-old is not impressed he's going head-to-head with a famous rapper ... he's way too busy dodging bananas and doling out red shells.

Whatever, the Nintendo 64 version still rules all.

Our Daughters Are Ballers!

Exclusive Details

1125-emmitt-tony-charles-twitter-01

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?
