Nick Carter Drops $50k On Steampunk Nursery

6/13/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0610_nick_carter_baby_room_launchNick Carter's firstborn son put a $50k dent in his pop's pockets before the tot could even crawl.

Nick's son, Odin, was born April 19th, and the Backstreet Boy and wife Lauren went all out on Odin's naptime digs by hiring celeb designer Stephanie Avila from Rock a Bye Mommy to build the nursery while Tori Swaim from New Arrivals, Inc. hooked up the baby bedding.

The hefty price included construction and furniture ... and these ain't discount items. The crib was $700, $1,200 for sconces, a $550 lamp and a $2,500 couch. 

We're told Lauren and Nick loved the steampunk wallpaper, and decided to run with the industrial motif for the whole room.

Check out the pics of the decor ... which guarantees little Odin's a lock for Burning Man come 2034.

Kim Zolciak Our Daughter Got Good Vibrations From Dog Shock Collar

6/10/2016 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Zolciak is trying to stem the tide of outrage ... insisting she did not use a dog collar to shock her daughter.

Kim posted a video showing 14-year-old Ariana unbuckling the shock collar around the family dog's neck, and putting it around her own.

The collar emits shock waves when it's activated by a button, which hubby Kroy had in his hand. Kroy was pushing away and Ariana reacted, but Kim insists the collar was at such a low level it was merely a vibration and not a shock. 

The good news ... Ariana learned how to roll over. 

'Finding Dory' Cash Cow for Fish Stores ... Deadly for the Fish

6/10/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0607-finding-dory-getty-disney-01Disney's "Finding Dory" is causing a rift in the exotic fish community ... which believes the movie could bring a financial boom -- but also massacre the fish population.

We called a bunch of fish dealers who say they've stocked up on blue tangs -- Dory's species -- expecting a rush once the movie premieres. The same spike happened for clownfish after "Finding Nemo."

Tangs ain't cheap -- one goes for $40 to $60 ... So there's big money to be made.

But many experts told us they're worried tons of blue tangs will die when parents flock to buy the fragile fish for kids because tangs require a very specific, exotic tank setup. As one enthusiast put it ... fish novices "will kill these creatures."     

One store owner sounded like he had PTSD from the 'Nemo' craze, and said he's stocking ZERO blue tangs ... just to avoid the "screaming kids."

Shop wisely.

060316_bobby_brownBobby Brown lost it while describing the moment he decided to turn off Bobbi Kristina's life support.

Brown sat down with ABC's Robin Roberts to talk not only about his daughter's death, but also his ex-wife Whitney Houston.

The singer covers a lot of ground -- including the first time Bobby saw Whitney do drugs, and how addiction affected their marriage and his finances. The interview airs next week on "20/20." 


Madonna & Rocco Gonna Dress You Up ... In a Mask

6/1/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0601-madonna-rocco-ritchie-broadway-masks-INF-01Madonna finally got what she wanted ... her son Rocco back in New York City and she's wasting no time getting in some QT.

Madge took Rocco, older sis Lourdes and some pals out Tuesday to the off-Broadway show "Sleep No More." They all left wearing masks -- it's part of the show -- but their cover was already blown.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie made peace a couple months ago in their custody war over Rocco -- and it looks like he's out of school in the U.K. now, and ready to hang with Mom.

Happy ending for everyone.

Exclusive Details

Royalty's 2nd birthday party was truly fit for a baller princess.

Chris Brown and Nia Guzman's little one got the "Frozen" treatment Sunday. Royalty even made a grand entrance on a pony and chilled with Elsa, Anna and Olaf ... all with fake snow coming down.

We're told the sugary goodies alone -- including a customized 3-tier castle cake with rhinestone towers -- cost Royalty's parents a cool $10k at Sweet Serenity Desserts.

Chris couldn't attend, since he's on tour, but bragged about dropping $30k on the whole shindig. Apparently llamas and mini horses don't come cheap.


Cincinnati Zoo Parents Under Investigation After Gorilla Shooting

Breaking News

0531-michelle-gregg-facebook-01Cincinnati police are zeroing in on the parents of the 3-year-old boy who fell into Harambe the gorilla's enclosure ... a strong sign they could still be charged with a crime.

Cincy PD says they are reviewing "the actions of the parents/family that led up to the incident." Cops make it clear they're NOT focusing on the Cincinnati Zoo -- since that falls under the United States Department of Agriculture's jurisdiction.

Critics have called for the parents -- Michelle Gregg and Deonne Dickerson -- to face negligence charges ... blaming them for setting in motion the chain of events that led to Harambe's death.

Dickerson was not at the zoo when it all went down. 


Shaunie O'Neal Mom's Gotta Keep Kids Closer ... Cincy Zoo Screwed Up Too

5/31/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaunie O'Neal's got a ton of questions for the mother at the center of the Cincinnati Zoo tragedy -- starting with how the woman allowed her 4-year-old to wander THAT far away.

As a mother of 5, the 'Baskeball Wives' creator has strong opinions about what went wrong at the zoo -- but Shaunie's not laying ALL the blame on the parents. While some critics are calling for social services to get involved ... Shaunie says pump the brakes on that. For now. 

Shaunie also tells us how she would have reacted in the same situation. She's only half-kidding ... we think.
