Debbie Rowe Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Daughter Paris Jackson in the Dark

7/4/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

070116-debbie-rowe-tmzMichael Jackson's ex-wife has breast cancer, and their estranged daughter doesn't even know.

We've learned Debbie Rowe was diagnosed recently and will undergo surgery in the next week, but her daughter, 18-year-old Paris Jackson, has no idea because she broke all contact with her mom more than a year ago.

Rowe has all but given up on salvaging the relationship. After Michael died, Debbie and Paris got extremely close, to the point it created friction with the rest of the family.

When Paris began dealing with her own problems, the relationship fell apart. Rowe believes the family influenced their daughter and drove a wedge.

Either way, we're told Debbie is sad, but is not counting on any emotional support from her daughter.

Louis Tomlinson My Baby Mama Needs a Muzzle

7/3/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701-louis-tomlinson-briana-jungwirth-INSTAGRAM-SNAPCHAT-02Louis Tomlinson is willing to settle his custody beef with baby mama Briana Jungwirth, but only if she agrees to keep their relationship and kid off social media. 

TMZ broke the story, the One Direction singer filed legal docs for joint custody, because he claims Briana's denied him access to 5-month-old Freddie.

We're told Louis would like to avoid a court battle if they can come to terms. Louis wants pre-approval rights of any Freddie pics Briana wants to post.

For her part, Briana says she has a right as a proud mom to post pics of their son, and she says she hasn't trashed Louis so he has nothing to complain about.

As for the source of the conflict, Louis is convinced Briana is blinded by jealously over his relationship with Danielle Campbell, and she went crazy when Freddie came home with the smell of Danielle's perfume. Louis thinks things will be fine if Briana just moves on.

But we're told Briana fires back ... jealously isn't in her playbook. Her concern about Danielle is purely about Freddie ... she believes Louis' GF may be a crazed fan, and it worries her.

Chad Ochocinco Ambushed w/ Child Support Lawsuit ... Chad Calls It Unfair

7/3/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Ochocinco was confronted by his ex's mother -- who demanded the NFL star pony up the $38k in child support he owes her daughter ... but Chad says the amount is just not fair.

Here's the backstory ... Chad was leaving his son's middle school graduation in California last month, when he was confronted by the grandmother of one of his other children and some of her friends. 

The woman was trying to serve Chad with court documents -- in which he's accused of stiffing the mother of his 14-year-old son out of $38k in back child support. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Chad ... who tells us he's not trying to screw anyone over -- he simply can't afford to make the high monthly payment that was established back when he had an NFL income. 

"I haven't had an NFL paycheck since 2011," Chad says. 

The woman says Chad was ordered to pay $6,000 per month in support ($72k per year) plus another $1,000 per month needs to be contributed to the child's college fund. 

But the woman says Chad hasn't paid in full since Dec. 2015 and he now owes close to $40k. 

Chad tells us he kept up with the payments for years after his NFL career was over -- but his financial situation has changed (he has more kids and no income) and he can't keep up. 

"I have a nugget, but I have to make the cash last with all 6 kids for the next 18 years. We have to scale back." 

Chad says he wants to work out a compromise with his ex out of court -- but if they can't, they have a date with a judge set for August 2nd.

Ralphie May To The Rescue ... Saves Choking Baby

6/30/2016 3:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

063016-ralphie-may-tmz-02Comedian Ralphie May saved a choking toddler's life at the Spokane airport Thursday after stepping up and giving the kid the Heimlich.

A witness tells us Ralphie was sitting inside the airport's food court when the kid's mother began screaming at the top of her lungs nearby for help. People gathered around, and one person attempted to hit the child on the back, but it didn't work and the kid started turning blue. 

That's when Ralphie moved in to give the kid the Heimlich, dislodging the food.

Our witness says paramedics eventually arrived and told Ralphie he'd saved the tot's life. 

Louis Tomlinson, Baby Mama Custody Fight Over His Girlfriend

EXCLUSIVE

0630-louis-tomlinson-briana-jungwirth-instagram-01Louis Tomlinson is going to court for joint custody because he claims his baby mama is keeping him from their child because she hates his girlfriend, but she says the GF poses a security risk to the kid.

TMZ broke the story, the One Direction singer is now asking a judge to award him joint custody and equal access to 5-month-old Freddie, because recently she's been denying him access to the infant.

063016-louis-danielle-gettyWe're told Louis chalks the whole thing up to jealously. There have been lots of pics posted of him and Danielle Campbell, and he says the photos send her into a rage.

Louis says he and baby mama Briana Jungwirth have actually gotten along until recently and he was seeing the baby all the time, but things have now taken a turn for the worse.

As for Briana, we're told she says it's annoying that when Louis has the baby, he'll come back home smelling like perfume. But Briana's real problem ... she believes Danielle may be nothing more than a crazed fan who now knows her home address and gate security code.

We're also told Briana will object to joint custody if he has a nanny, because she feels that isn't true parenting on his part. She also wants to make sure the kid stays in the U.S.

Andrea Pearson says Chad failed to make a $5,250 payment in April ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ. Her petition for contempt offers the judge several options ... garnish Chad's wages, slap him with a fine, or throw him in the pokey.

As we previously reported ... Chad's had money trouble going as far back as 2013, when his expenses far outpaced his income

We reached out to Chad who scoffed at the amount, telling TMZ, "5k? That's it? All she had to do was call like normal people do. You can always tell who is in it for the money."

Prince DNA Shuts Down Long-Lost 'Son'

6/22/2016 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42116-prince-getty-04Prince is NOT the father of the federal prisoner who claimed he was the singer's long-lost son ... according to Maury Povich DNA testing.

Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell us the DNA test returned a 0.0% chance that Carlin Q. Williams is Prince's spawn. In docs, Carlin said his mother met Prince in 1976 and knocked her up in a Kansas City hotel.

Carlin -- in prison for gun possession -- is one of several people who've come out of the woodwork claiming blood relations. Another woman, Taz Walker, also claims Prince was her pops.

It's unclear what the status is of her case.
