Chris Brown

Hoes ARE Loyal ...

About Jacking My Cash!

6/18/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

A ticket to a Chris Brown concert buys you some serious life lessons from Breezy himself, who stopped his El Paso show to vent about baby mama drama.

“Girls – they don’t get your money, “ Breezy told the fellas in the crowd, “Get your money but be smart, man. Everybody be smart.”

Translation: keep it in your pants if you don’t want to dish out child support checks.

Brown’s been at odds with his baby mama Nia Guzman over child support for their one-year-old daughter Royalty. She allegedly wanted $15k a month ... six times more than the previous monthly check.

Check out Chris' pearls of wisdom -- which include comparing himself to President Obama.

Child support vs. War on ISIS? Doubtful.

Kanye West

Snoozing Kanye Called Out By Elsa

... At 'Frozen' Show

6/16/2015 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0616-arrow-kim-kanye-sleeping-facebook-01Kanye West isn’t the biggest "Frozen" fan in the world and the ice princess onstage at Disneyland gave him a cold stare for it.

Kanye must have been exhausted from walking around the park for North West’s birthday -- 'cause he caught some major ZZZZZs during the "Frozen" sing-along show. The problem for Daddy West is he's pretty high profile.

A Disney employee noticed him, umm ... resting his eyes, and later said on FB and Twitter ... “when you perform for the Kardashian family for North’s birthday…and Kanye sleeps through the whole show.”

Our park sources tell us the employee was the woman who played Elsa. We're also told Kanye passed out for the entire performance, which is only 25 minutes. So, kinda perfect time for a nap.

Bottom line here ... Kanye's just like most other dads.

North West

I Can't See Mickey ...

Too Many Damn Security Guards!

6/16/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

North West's trip to Disneyland for her second birthday would have been amazing ... if only she could have seen through the massive security team following her around.

The majority of the Kardashian klan made the trip to Anaheim to celebrate, including Tyga and his son. 

Instead of trying to blend in, Kanye, Kim and company rolled around with what looked like a dozen security personnel escorting them around the park.

It may be a 'Small World' ... but North's got BIG company in it.

breaking news

0616-main-blackhawks-injury-getty-01A small child was struck in the face with a bottle ... and appeared to be bleeding ... during the crazy Stanley Cup celebrations in Chicago last night. 

The child -- unclear how old he is -- was carried to paramedics near Wrigley Field to be treated ... this according to the Washington Post. 

So far, the kid's condition is unclear ... but it was just one part of the madness that took over the Windy City when the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup.  

People swarmed the streets ... climbed traffic lights ... ripped down street signs ... and set off fireworks. 

At least 5 people were arrested, according to the Chicago Tribune.

There's more ... in keeping with tradition, a bunch of fans toilet papered the home of Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville to celebrate. 

Congrats?

11:30 PST:  We've learned Mel walked out of court victorious. The judge is allowing Mel to take Lucia to Australia for 1 month and keep her in L.A. an additional 2 weeks before he leaves the country.  

We're also told there was a dispute over which kindergarten school Lucia would attend and the judge sided with Mel.

On the bigger issue of ongoing contention, we're told Mel and Oksana both told the judge they're working on being able to better co-parent.  

update_grey_gray_bar

Mel Gibson and baby mama Oksana Grigorieva are about to square off in court this morning ... and it's all about their 5-year-old daughter Lucia.

TMZ has learned, Mel is about to go to Australia to do a movie and wants to take his daughter with him for the summer. We're told Oksana objects, so they'll be making their respective cases before the family law judge. 

Our sources say the contention between Mel and Oksana on issues of child-rearing has not subsided ... there are many conflicts. 

And this is interesting ... we've learned Mel is extremely involved in Lucia's life. In fact, the judge has continually increased his custody of Lucia over the years, to the point where he now has physical custody of his daughter slightly more than 50% of the time.

Queen Elizabeth

Tiny Royal Subject ...

Gets Smacked Up

6/12/2015 12:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Get too close to Queen Elizabeth II, and you might take a shot to the face ... is the lesson a a 6-year-old girl learned at the hand of a Royal Guard.

The little girl, named Maisie, got the chance of a lifetime when she handed flowers and curtsied for QE2 Thursday in Wales.

But watch, right after her moment in the sun, Maisie got a quick reminder life sucks sometimes -- 'cause Lizzie's guard decided to snap off a VERY enthusiastic salute ... and nearly took off the kid's head.

She shook it off -- but someone should be getting an invite for tea at Buckingham Palace.

Mama June

My 'Money Hungry Bitch' Mom

Is Behind Anna's Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June's daughter Anna/Chickadee was bullied into suing her mother -- bullied by her grandmother and her grandmother's BF -- and Mama June says she has text messages to prove it.

TMZ broke the story ... Anna is suing Mama June, claiming June kept all the 'Honey Boo Boo' money that should have been distributed to the family. Both Anna and her daughter Kaitlyn are suing.

But TMZ has learned June will file legal docs Thursday, claiming her mother, Sandra Hale, is behind the lawsuit and Anna never wanted to file it nor does she believe what's being alleged.  

We know June has text messages from Anna to a family member, one of which says, "I did not hire the lawyer. My grandma did ... I know I can't get her money and that's what I tried to tell him [Sandra's boyfriend]."  

What's more, June has another text from Anna which reads, "I never really talked to [the lawyer] cause my grandma boyfriend talked the whole time and then kicked me out so he could talk to the guy. So Idk what was said behind closed door." 

We got Mama June at LAX a few months ago, and she clearly knew who was fueling the family feud, calling her mom "a money hungry bitch."

'RHOA' Star Cynthia Bailey

My Daughter’s Super Sweet 16

... Is A Teenage Dream

6/11/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is pulling out all the stops to spoil her daughter Noelle with the ultimate sweet 16 ... and of course, the entire thing is going to be televised.

TMZ has learned that Cynthia is throwing a bomb-ass birthday party for her daughter and she's getting help from celebrity event planner David Tutera. We’re told Cynthia is getting the extra help because the party will be featured on an episode of Tutera’s “CELEBrations” on WeTV.

Cynthia's inviting a couple hundred guests -- and Rev. Run's son Diggy Simmons is going to perform, along with Disney star Trevor Jackson.

The party's going down Thursday night. Check out a clip of Noelle's invitation video, which looks more like behind the scenes of a high fashion photo shoot than an invitation -- but we're pretty sure that's the point. 

Tim Hardaway

My NBA Son Can't Hold A Candle ...

To My Crossover!

EXCLUSIVE

He's pushin' 50 ... but Tim Hardaway says there's no way in hell his 23-year-old NBA son could cross him over -- telling TMZ Sports he still dominates his kid when it comes to handlin' the rock. 

In fact, Hardaway says he's still the GREATEST OF ALL TIME when it comes to pulling off the move that he basically invented during his NBA career.  

Oh, and since Tim Sr.'s also a coach with the Pistons ... and his son plays for the Knicks ... we had to ask if he roots AGAINST his own flesh and blood when they face off on the court. 

But the big question ... who wins when Tim Sr. takes on Tim Jr. in a Hardaway family 1-on-1 session? Check out the clip. 

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Sues

You Screwed Me Out of a Fortune!!

6/10/2015 11:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0610-dwight-howard-TMZ-01$10,000 per month is WAYYY TOO LOW for child support when it comes to Dwight Howard ... this according to one of his baby mamas who says Dwight has been screwing her out of serious dough and now she wants to collect.  

The Houston Rockets star is being sued in Florida ... by a woman who claims she and Dwight struck a private deal back in 2013 that required him to fork over $10k per month in child support.  

But according to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman (Tiffany) says Howard hasn't lived up to his end of the bargain ... and since January, has only paid her HALF of what he owes.  

Tiffany says the financial slight has forced her to reconsider their arrangement ... and since he makes more than $27 MILLION per year in salary and endorsements, she wants a bigger slice of the pie.  

The kid is currently 4 years old ... and Tiffany says she needs the cash to put the child in expensive private schools, pay for extracurricular activities and fund social activities like birthday parties and sleepovers that will help the kid make friends.  

Tiffany also says ... since the child has a famous father, she'll need extra cash for therapy to "deal with the unique issues involved in being the child of a celebrity." 

We reached out to Dwight's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

You Kept All the Bacon

EXCLUSIVE

0610-chickadee-mamajune-instagram-tmzMama June's daughter and granddaughter are suing her, claiming she screwed them out of hundreds of thousands of dollars from their series, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

Anna Cardwell and her 2-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, claim Mama June pocketed money that was earmarked for them. Anna says she's owed around $200k and Kaitlyn is owed $100k.

The mother/daughter plaintiffs say Mama June kept their share of the $22,500 per episode. They also say Mama June didn't fork over royalties for their cookbook and other promotional things.

Anna and Kaitlyn have also dragged TLC into the lawsuit, claiming the network had a duty to protect them ... ensuring they'd get what was owed to them. 

TLC has always said it helped set up accounts to ensure everyone got what was owed to them.
