Chris Brown's Baby Mama

Royalty's Not Safe

Around His 'Gang' Friends

7/15/2015 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0715_chris_brown_nia_guzman_tmz_instagramChris Brown lost more than $50k worth of gear in the home invasion ... it could also cost him daddy time, because his baby mama is worried Royalty's in danger when she's with Chris and his homies.

Sources close to Nia Guzman tell TMZ ... she thinks many of Chris' friends are gang members or gang-affiliated, and the robbery shows they've now turned on Chris. We're told she's not cool with Royalty being around that element. 

As we first reported ... Chris' mother also thinks last night's hit was an inside job.

It's bad timing for Chris. He just filed docs asking a judge to hammer out a formal custody agreement -- partly because he says Nia's been denying him visits with Royalty.

If the court sees things Nia's way it could affect custody.

Caitlyn Jenner

I Want My Whole Family to Join Me

At the ESPYs, Except ...

7/14/2015 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0714-caitlyn-kris-jenner-getty-tmz-01Caitlyn Jenner has invited her entire family to be by her side when she receives the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs Wednesday night, with the exception of her 3 ex-wives.

Chrystie Crownover, Linda Thompson and Kris Jenner will not be attending the ceremony, and it makes sense. We're told Caitlyn wants her family there, and the exes are not family anymore. As one Caitlyn source put it, "Her ex-wives don't celebrate Father's Day. Fact is, they're just not her family, but the kids are."

And the kids will be there in force ... Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie. Brody, Burt and Cassandra will also be at the ceremony, but Brandon is up in the air because his wife, Leah, is about to give birth. Caitlyn's mom and sister will be in attendance too. 

Then there's Rob Kardashian ... we're told he's definitely invited, but it doesn't look good because he's shunned every public appearance for more than a year. 

Scott Disick

I May Be Partying BUT ...

I Haven't Abandoned My Kids

EXCLUSIVE

0713_scott_disick_kourtney_kardashian_tmz

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are done, but he is there for his kids every day ... at least remotely.

Sources connected with Scott tell TMZ, although his relationship with Kourtney is "a disaster," he is in constant touch with his oldest 2 children ... 5-year-old Mason and 3-year-old Penelope.  

Scott has not physically seen the kids in more than a month, partly because it's impossible for him to be around Kourtney without a nuclear argument. In fact, we're told it would be impossible for him to just show up because he's no longer on the list at the front gate in the gated community and can't gain entry.

But he Facetimes and phones Mason and Penelope on a regular basis.

And get this ... although Kourtney has "extremely bad feelings" for Scott, she facilitates Scott's contact with their kids and encourages the children to maintain a relationship with him.

Kelly Rutherford

How Do I Feel?

Read My Lips

7/14/2015 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0714-kelly-rutherford-splashKelly Rutherford doesn't have to say a word about how she's feelin' ... now that she has her kids for the summer ... her smile says it all.

Rutherford's 8-year-old Hermes clung to her and 6-year-old Helena hung on tight, as they walked the streets of NYC with Kelly's BF, Gucci exec Tony Brand. 

The brood has been hitting up some highfalutin places ... the Met, a children's museum and some high-end shopping. Tony probably came in handy.   

Kelly's in a battle royale with ex-hubby Daniel Giersch. He won custody of the kids and lives in Monaco, but the judge recently allowed the kids to spend the summer months with their mom.  

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Not Too Fancy ...

For a Subway Ride

Exclusive Details

0713-brad-angelina-subway-PCN-02

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have money to burn, but the mega superstars still eat fresh on a budget ... hitting up a Subway to take advantage of the $6 menu.

We're told Brad, Angie and a few of their SIX kids cruised into the sandwich shop in Glendale, CA over the weekend. If you're wondering what it takes to feed a crew that size -- 2 Meatball Marinara footlongs, 1 Chicken Teriyaki sandwich, and a few kids' meals. 

Total tab ... $44, and Pitt made the sandwich artist's day with a hefty $6 tip! Kinda unheard of at Subway.

First, it was coach flights ... now Subway?  Look out for Maddox and Pax on an MTA bus near you.

Chad Johnson

My 10-Year-Old Daughter's

a World Class Sprinter!

7/13/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0710-chad-johnson-ochocinco-daughter-INSTAGRAM-01Speed runs in Chad Johnson's family -- and the proof is in his 10-year-old daughter ... who's one of the fastest little girls in the country ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've spoken with a bunch of important people in the track and field world who tell us there's buzz around Cha'iel Johnson (aka "Moca") ... who posted a BLAZING 29.5 in the 200 meters in 2014. 

She's only gotten faster since then and has been smoking people in major competitions across the country ... while speed training with her famous father.  

In fact, Moca is set to compete in the 200m, 400m and 800m sprints at the National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships in Jacksonville later this month ... and Chad says he couldn't be more proud. 

Johnson says he LOVES his daddy/daughter time -- and now that he's not in the NFL, he's had a lot more time to be a hands-on parent. 

But Chad says it's important to keep Moca humble -- which is why he also races her full speed ... and dominates ... saying, "I want her to know there's room for improvement. But she's quick as hell."

Ben Affleck

Wedding Ring Off ...

Then Wedding Ring Back On

7/10/2015 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0710-ben-affleck-ring-fame-flynet-splash-03Ben Affleck was out in Atlanta with his wedding ring back on -- days after announcing his split from Jennifer Garner, and being photographed without it.

Ben had a daddy day out with oldest daughter Violet -- hitting up a bunch of museums -- and flashing his wedding band. Jennifer and the kids are in Atlanta while she shoots a movie, and we knew he was flying in to hang with the kids ... but the ring is surprising.

Affleck was not wearing it earlier this week when he was solo in L.A.

But you can chill on the possible reconciliation rumors. As we've reported ... Ben and Jen intend to keep the divorce civil, and share custody of their 3 children -- and we're told the ring is on simply to smooth the transition for them.

'Homeland' Star

Real Marriage Blows Up Too ...

And It Could Cost Her $$$

7/6/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-moreno-baccarin-tmz-01 Morena Baccarin -- Nicholas Brody's estranged wife on "Homeland" -- is headed for divorce off-screen too -- and all her success since the Showtime hit could work against her in the split.

Baccarin’s writer/director husband, Austin Chick, filed the divorce docs, citing irreconcilable differences, after 3 and a half years of marriage -- a lifetime in Hollywood.

According to the docs, Chick wants joint custody of their one-year-old son ... and he wants spousal support.

It looks like Baccarin's been the breadwinner in the fam -- picking up roles on hits like "Gotham" and "The Flash" -- so, at least on paper, she'll likely end up forking over some amount of cash.

Did we mention she's banging Det. Jim Gordon on "Gotham?" 'Cause she is ... and she looks freakin' hot doing it. 

Shaquille O'Neal

I'm Jealous Of My 15-Year-Old Son

EXCLUSIVE

After 4 championships, 15 All Star games, and a bajillion dollars ... Shaquille O'Neal says there's still another basketball player he's jealous of -- his 15-year-old son.

The Diesel was DJ'ing a party for the MyVegas casino app when we asked about his stud of a son Shareef ... and what it's like to watch everyone freak out over the hoop skills of a different O'Neal. 

Check out the clip -- Shaq keeps it super real ... saying that there are times he's a little jealous of his offspring ... mainly because the little O'Neal got famous much quicker than the big one.

He should also be jealous of Shareef's shooting ability ... 

HBO Star Abby Ryder Fortson

Kid Can Count to 20,000 Every Week

... On Her Paychecks!

EXCLUSIVE

0619-abby-ryder-fortson-getty-01Pint-sized Abby Ryder Fortson is making tons of dough while tearing up Hollywood … starring in 3 TV shows and making a superhero leap to the big screen.

TMZ has obtained little Abby’s HBO contract for “Togetherness.”

Here’s what the 7-YEAR-OLD is making -- $17,500 per episode for season one and with season two already in production, her pay is jumping up to $20,000 per episode. If the show keeps on rolling along for a 3rd season, she’ll get another 5% bump -- and that's just ONE of her jobs.

Abby's crushing the casting process ... also booking gigs on ABC’s “The Whispers,” Amazon’s “Transparent,” and the Marvel movie “Ant-Man.” We mentioned she's 7, right?

Mom and Dad are working actors too, but at this pace ... Abby will be handing them allowance soon.

'Good Witch' Star Bailee Madison

15 and Flush with Cash

EXCLUSIVE

0623_Bailee-Madison_good_witch_gettyBailee Madison must have cast a spell on the creators of Hallmark Channel’s “Good Witch," because she stands to make a million bucks from the show.

TMZ took a gander at her minor’s contract and the 15-year-old is clearly the envy of her peers for playing the young witch. She made $30k per episode for the first season.

The next 4 years could set her up for life -- she can make $36,465 an episode by the 5th season.

Only 3 more years until she's free to blow the money on whatever her witchy heart desires.
