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

EXCLUSIVE

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."

30 Going On 17

4/8/2015 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.  

Tony Hawk

My Son's a Killer Skater

'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.

EXCLUSIVE

0407-jim-florentine-wife-tmz-gettyWe guarantee comedian Jim Florentine has a new divorce bit in his act -- his marriage is over ... but he and his ex have already divvied things up, and at least Jim will still have a place to write jokes. 

Florentine -- best known for "The Howard Stern Show" appearances and "Crank Yankers" -- filed to divorce Samantha Florentine on March 6. They'd been together for 2 and-a-half years.

No long drawn out battle here though ... sources close to Jim tell us the exes have already reached a settlement agreement. We're told Jim keeps their house in New Jersey, and they will share custody of their son, Luke.

We're also told Samantha will get an unspecified amount of child support, and a one time payout of $25k. 

This was his first marriage ... her third. Expect more details on the split on Jim's next comedy album -- just a guess.

Tom Cruise

Katie Sources Say

He Hasn't Seen Suri in a Year

4/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Cruise Hasnt Seen Suri

Tom Cruise said he wasn't able to see his daughter for months because he was shooting "Mission Impossible 5" in London, and he was counting the hours before he came home to little Suri. But we're told he was off work for 2 weeks after shooting wrapped, yet never saw her. 

Sources connected to Katie Holmes tell TMZ ... it's worse than that. They say Tom has not seen the 8-year-old in almost a year. Tom's rep previously denied that and said the actor has seen his daughter plenty, but on the down low to shield her from cameras.

But our Katie sources say that's not true ... that he's just not been a part of her life.  

There's been speculation Tom is distancing himself from Katie and Suri because they've been declared SPs in Scientology, but we've checked with the Church and we're told that is simply not true.

Tom is now back to business ... he just began a 90 day shoot in Atlanta.

He did take time Sunday to take his son Connor to the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament in Tampa.

We reached out to Tom's rep .... so far no word back.

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon

You Can Be a Family

And Lead Separate Lives

EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey Nick Cannon Back Together Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are laughing off stories they're back together ... they're not.

Mariah posted a photo of the former couple at the Bronx Zoo with their twins, Moroccan and Monroe, captioning the pic, "Happy Easter!!! #ontheegghunt #NYiswild."

According to our sources, while the two talk every day, reconciliation is not in the cards. We're told they try to see each other once a week, sometimes with the kids and other times alone because they've become friends again.

We're told the divorce process has been easy --  it helps when there's a prenup -- but any sort of romantic relationship is ancient history. They both feel they're better off as friends.

Chris Brown

Baby Mama's BF ... Step Aside Breezy

I'll Parent Royalty

4/6/2015 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown Baby Mama BoyfriendThe boyfriend of Chris Brown's baby mama is hitting Chris where it hurts most ... fatherhood.

King Ba dumped Nia Guzman after he learned her 9-month-old baby was fathered by Brown. But we've learned they're back together, and Ba is treating Royalty like his own.

He's posted pics of the two of them, saying, "Been a Dad Still a Dad... Minus All the Nonsense That Been Going On We Still Kick It." He seems to be saying he acted like Royalty's dad before he learned Chris was the biological father, and now he's over technicalities and is stepping in as a parent.

0406-SUB-king-ba-dad-INSTAGRAM-01

Ba and Nia had an Easter celebration with Royalty and her older kid, so it looks like Ba is backing up his intentions with actions.

As for Chris ... he's far, far away in Africa.
