Darius McCrary

Busted for Taking Son Too Long

Warrant Costs Him $15k

4/23/2015 8:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0423-darius-mccrary-tmz-01Darius McCrary should just leave a credit card on file with the Michigan court system -- he just paid dearly again ... this time for allegedly keeping his son too long on a Spring Break trip.

A bench warrant was issued for McCrary last week after baby mama Elizabeth Alanoly filed an emergency motion claiming McCrary didn't return their kid on time.  

According to court records, McCrary had to post a $15,000 bond to clear the warrant. We're told their 7-year-old son is back with Mom now.

Darius had to pay $5,500 just last month to Alanoly for back child support.

We've reached out to Darius' reps ... but no word back.

Exclusive Details

Jameis Winston ain't the only superstar athlete in his family -- his 7-year-old brother is already a "damn superstar" ... so says the president of the kid's youth baseball league. 

Jameis has already publicly touted his lil' bro Jonah Winston as a "Young Jeter" ... and according to Steve Crim, who runs the Hueytown Dixie Youth Baseball League -- Jameis is right. 

"Jonah is a damn superstar," Crim says ... "You can't catch him, can't strike him out, can't stop him. For a 7-year-old, he's a true phenom. He is that good."

Crim says Jonah isn't just a stud on the diamond -- he's crushing it in football and basketball too ... "He's one of the best kids out here. Just a true athlete and he's a really good little kid too. People really care about him."

Of course, Jonah is getting some major support from Jameis -- who's been taking in some games recently and posting the highlights online ... and it's clear the kid can play. 

"Jonah can be a future pro one day just like his big brother ... in any sport really."

Royalty's With Me Now, Permanently

4/21/2015 4:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-chris-brown-royalty-kingba-INSTAGRAM-02Chris Brown's got a war on his hands -- his baby mama's boyfriend just staked his claim to baby Royalty with two new tattoos.

Nia Guzman's BF, King Ba keeps posting adorable pics of himself with Royalty ... and in the latest one he's flaunting fresh ink of a giant royal crown over the name, "Nia."

The tatts are definitely brand new -- because when he was photographed at Easter ... again with Royalty ... the left forearm was clean.

0421-SUB-chris-brown-royalty-kingba-INSTAGRAM-01KB seems to be responding to Chris' Instagram last week with Royalty ... where he said, "God has blessed me with my twin." 

It's gonna be interesting. Chris has DNA on his side, but as long as Royalty's in Texas -- King's got face time on his side.

Rick Ross

Outcoached For Good Cause

... Loses Charity Hoops Game To Ex-NFL Star

Exclusive Details

0421_rick_ross_charity_basketball_game_photos_launchRick Ross just got out-bawsed ... but he ain't sweatin' it -- 'cause even though he got CRUSHED in a celeb hoops game ... he raised a TON of cash for a local charity.

Ross stepped up to coach a team in the 4th annual Nike South Beach Celebrity Court of Dreams game this past weekend to benefit the South Beach Charitable Foundation for kids.

The hip-hop star coached a team of celebs -- including NFL players Antrel Rolle and the Pouncey twins ... in an effort to beat the "South Beach All-Stars," coached by ex-NFL lineman Bryant McKinnie

In the end ... Ross' squad just couldn't hang and they lost to Bryant's team 62-38.

But the event raised $35,000 for charity -- so, hard to call anyone a loser after that. 

Nice work. 

Wladimir Klitschko, Hayden Panettiere

Someone's in Trouble

4/21/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421_wladimir_klitschko_baby_beach_water_waves_launch_2Wladimir Klitschko may be the heavyweight champion of the world, but he's about to get his ass kicked by his 5' fiancee.

Wlad took baby Kaya out into the Miami beach surf, while Hayden Panettiere was doing 'GMA' in NYC.

It looks like fun and games, but we're guessing Hayden will have issues:

-- the baby doesn't have a life jacket

-- Wlad is clowning off balance in the surf, with Kaya in a precarious position

-- she's not wearing a hat in the Miami sun

That said, dad is no ordinary father at 6'6" and 246 lbs. Kaya's in good hands. Of course, Hayden might not see it that way. 

Good luck Wlad ... we're rooting for you!.

Nick Loeb

Sofia Should Not Deny Life

To Our 2 Daughters

4/21/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-nick-loeb-sofia-vergara

Nick Loeb says there are 2 unborn girls he wants to father ... and he's not asking the mother, Sofia Vergara, for anything other than cooperation in allowing them to be born. 

Loeb's lawyer says, "Nick is not seeking to impose any parental obligations on the egg donor, financial or otherwise, and believes that the sanctity of life, his interest in achieving parenthood, and his desire to bring his daughters to term outweighs any interest the egg donor may have in destroying the embryos."

As TMZ reported, Nick is suing Sofia, claiming she wants to destroy the embryos now that she's moved on. Sofia says she will not destroy the embryos, but as we reported she refuses to allow them to come to term. We're told Sofia does not want to stir up a hornet's nest with her right-to-life fan base.

Nick's lawyer goes on ... "I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father."

He says he wants no money from Sofia ... Nick is loaded. He adds he's willing to give her an opportunity to be involved in the children's lives.

And the lawyer ends with this ... "Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right."  

Damon Dash

Loses Custody to Rachel Roy

Damon Dash
 just lost custody of the daughters he shares with ex-wife Rachel Roy, and it's probably all news to him ... since he didn't even show up for the hearing. 

Roy just got sole legal and physical custody of 15-year-old Ava and 6-year-old Tallulah. Dash also wanted full custody.

The former couple each accused the other of being an unfit parent. He claimed she drove drunk with one of the girls, and threatened to cut him with a knife. She claimed he smokes weed around the kids. She said all the women and drugs were a bad influence on their daughters.

The judge clearly sided with Rachel, ruling Dash only gets supervised visitation.

Roy also got a three-year restraining order against Dash.

Mariah Carey

Eat Your Heart Out Nick

I'm Not Coming Back!

EXCLUSIVE

0417-sub-mariah-carey-tmz-01
Mariah Carey is clearly influenced by a much younger singer, because she's saying she'll never ever ever get back together with Nick Cannon.

We know Mariah has seen our video of Nick, telling us he's not closing the door on the possibility of giving their marriage another try.

But sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ, she's out of that game. She likes Nick, but there's no chance of a romantic reconciliation. 

She's not in the market for anyone right now. Mariah has a residency in Vegas that's just weeks away. She's also into raising the twins. When she's not working she goes to Eleuthera, her private Island in the Bahamas.

It looks like she may have a case of post breakup hotness, right?

Kylie Jenner

Girls Want Her Fat Lips!!!

4/20/2015 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner pretty clearly has a fan base that wants her lips, whether they're real or not.

Truth be told, our office is divided. The guys think these girls in the video are mocking Kylie by putting their lips inside a bottle to swell them up, but the women in the office say the girls are trying to be just like the youngest Jenner. Since the men here have never been teenage girls, the women win.

The hashtag, #kyliejennerchallenge, is blowing up.

BTW Kylie has insisted in the past, "These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting ... Just in case anyone forgot... I'm 16."

David Beckham

I'm 52 Times Cooler

Than My Son!

4/17/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooklyn Beckham is developing quite a following on social media, but he's nowhere close to his father David ... which pops was sure to remind him of ... in the most embarrassing way possible.

The video's hysterical ... 16-year-old Brooklyn posted an Instagram video to celebrate crossing the one million line. David just had to poke his head in and put his son in his place ... by reminding him that 52 million people follow him on Facebook. BTW, David inflated it by 2 mil.  

Brooklyn's reaction is classic.

Reality's a bitch. 

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

0413-royce-reed-dwight-howard-tmz

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."
