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 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.


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 ...

5/18/2016 9:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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!"


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.

Phaedra Parks Son's 6th Bday Bash Family's All Here Except ...

5/18/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517_phaedra_parks_son_party_launch'RHOA' star Phaedra Parks put her broken marriage with Apollo Nida aside to make sure the entire family was together for their son Ayden's 'TMNT'-themed 6th birthday party, minus Apollo, of course.

Phaedra rented out Stars & Strikes bowling alley over the weekend in ATL, and the guest list was stacked -- 100 of Ayden's closest friends and family, including Apollo's mom. Phaedra's 'RHOA' co-star, Porsha Williams, also showed.

Apollo wasn't there since he's serving 8 years for bank fraud, but Ayden still looked like he had the time of his life, which isn't really hard when you're turning 6 and laser tagging.

Phaedra might've lost some cool mom points in the gift department. She followed up last year's tricked out Mercedes SUV with a $50k deposit into his college savings account.

Good thing Ayden's got 100 more presents to unwrap!

As for the uncanny body resemblance -- they do train together ... plus, that whole DNA thing. 

Ciara Loses Big to Future in Custody War

5/17/2016 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516-ciara-future-tmz-2Ciara got shot down in a big way in custody court Monday ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the former couple say Ciara showed up in court asking for sole custody of their 1-year-old son, baby Future. She claimed Future was a bad parent who was not present in the child's life. We're told she and her lawyer also trash talked Future to the judge, saying he was a bad person.

For his part, Future showed up and asked for joint custody, and the judge was squarely on his side, rejecting her arguments.  

California courts favor joint custody, so the decision was in line with the law.

We got Ciara leaving court, and she was mum.

It's been a bitter battle since baby Future was born. She's filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against him. The case is ongoing.

Shareef O'Neal I Got A New Hoops Tutor KOBE!!

5/12/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

File this under: TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS.

A new O'Neal is teaming up with Kobe Bryant to make basketball history ... Shaq's son Shareef ... who says Kobe offered to give him 1-on-1 training this summer ... and he accepted.

Yes, that Kobe Bryant ... the same one Shareef's father used to hate with a white hot passion.

Shareef dropped the news on us while leaving the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills ... saying he ran into Kobe at the All-Star Game in Toronto ... and the Mamba offered to be his hoops Obi-Wan.

"He was telling me I need to train with him ... I'm going to probably start training with him this summer."

The Shaq vs. Kobe beef -- one of the nastiest in sports history -- has cooled in recent years, with the two men gushing about each other in public. But still, didn't see this one coming! 

Even though it's all good now ... when we asked Shareef if he'd try to bust Kobe's ass when they eventually play each other, shades of the old O'Neal/Bryant rivalry came back out.

"If we play 1-on-1 ... Imma try to win."

Chip off the old block.
