Chris Brown's Baby Mama

Money's Not the Issue ...

He's Pissed Royalty's with His Mom

7/2/2015 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702_nia_guzman_chris_brown_instagram_TMZChris Brown had a $10k agreement in place with his baby mama, Nia Guzman … but when she shipped little Royalty off to hang with Chris' mom, he cut her off. 

Sources close to Nia tell TMZ ... Royalty's parents finally came to an agreement on child support ... settling on $10k per month from CB, starting July 1. As we reported, Chris' camp said Nia initially wanted $15k, but he only wanted to pay $2,500.  

We’re told the new deal blew up though, when Daddy wanted Royalty this week -- but she was already hanging with grandma in Virginia. Since relations between Chris and his mom have been bad for years now ... our sources say Chris got pissed.   

We're told Nia's claiming this is the first time she's ever denied Chris visitation, but looks like once was enough. We broke the story ... Chris is filing to establish paternity in court, so a judge can settle their child support and custody issues. 

According our sources, Nia never wanted to go to court because she didn’t want to seem like a gold digger. 

Paris Hilton

FAKED Horror in 'Plane Crash' Stunt ...

In on the Prank

7/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton is a better actress than we thought ... we've learned she was totally in on the "near plane crash" stunt.

TMZ has obtained a document prepared by the Egyptian production company behind the prank. Turns out Paris wasn't their first choice. The company sent the offer to the reps of other American celebs back in March, offering them big money to participate in the prank.  

The document states, "We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board."

The doc goes on, "We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

And the document even mentions the stunt has the blessing of Dubai authorities ... "Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project."

Sources say the production company offered a huge amount of money to a willing celeb ... in the million dollar range. 

We got Paris out Wednesday in Bev Hills, and listen closely ... she talks about the pilot "taking it too far." The question ... what, if anything, was she expecting?

Chris Brown

Files Paternity Docs

I've Had It With My Baby Mama!

7/1/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown has had it with baby mama Nia Guzman's child support and custody demands, so he's asking a judge to lay down the law once and for all.

Chris and Nia have been at war over 1-year-old Royalty. She's demanding $15k a month in child support, way more than Chris says is fair. 

We've learned Chris just filed legal docs in Houston to establish paternity. That will give him the right to fight Nia over support and custody.  

Chis has been paying Nia what he believes is a fair amount -- she claims he's been paying $2,500 a month. He wants a judge to set the figure, which he's confident will be closer to his number than hers.

Chris also wants a judge to establish clear custody guidelines. He says Nia has been denying him the right to see his daughter, so he wants a judge to set her straight.

Bobbi Kristina

Family, Not Oprah

Took Heroic Steps to Save Her

EXCLUSIVE

0701-oprah-bobbi-tyler-getty-tmz

Bobbi Kristina's family is pissed over reports that Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry orchestrated a Hail Mary to save BK's life ... when they had nothing to do with it.   

Sources close to the Houston and Brown families tell TMZ ... it was Pat Houston -- and not O or TP -- who organized a medevac airplane to bring BK to meet with a specialist in Chicago. 

We're told the family feels the report makes them seem like they're relying on celebs to take care of BK ... when that just isn't the case. 

As TMZ previously reported, once the specialist told the family there was nothing to be done ... they decided to take BK off all medications and allow her to die in peace.

Sherri Shepherd

Settles Divorce

Rolls Over on Child Support, Sorta

7/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630_sherri_shepherd_lamar_sally_tmzSherri Shepherd's nasty divorce and custody battle is finally over ... and stunningly, she has agreed to pay child support for the kid she disavowed from birth ... but with a catch.

Our sources say, Sherri and estranged hubby Lamar Sally have struck a settlement agreement in which the ex-'View' co-host will pay $4,100 a month in child support. The monthly obligation increases to $4,600 when the kid turns 13.  

Remember, Sherri fought Lamar tooth and nail in court, claiming he defrauded her into getting a surrogate to carry a baby for the purpose of getting child support.

Now for the catch. According to the settlement agreement, Sherri is allowed to pursue her fraud claim and if the appeals court rules in her favor, her child support obligations will disappear. 

And there's a Sofia Vergara twist ... the couple has embryos in storage and Sherri wants them destroyed. Lamar is undecided. According to the settlement, if Lamar chooses to bring the embryos to term, Sherri will not have to pay child support.

Sherri's not walking away completely empty-handed ... she'll get to hold onto the rights to her show, "Funny Mothers" which is currently in development.

Lil Wayne

My 15 Minutes Of Fame

Will Cost Clubs A Fortune

EXCLUSIVE

0630_lil_wayne_tmzLil Wayne will perform at your club for $110,000 … for a 15 minute/5 song set.

We got a hold of Weezy’s contract and rider for his upcoming club gigs.

In addition to the loot, Wayne demands an artist section big enough for his 20-plus entourage, stocked with 10 bottles of Dom Perignon, 5 Cirocs and 3 D’usse bottles at least 10 minutes prior to his arrival.  

And with a history of being shot at, it's no surprise he demands 2 security guards on either end of his booth.

Not bad for 15 minutes ... kinda makes you want to quit your day job.

NeNe Leakes

Don't Count Me

Out of 'RHOA' Just Yet

6/30/2015 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-nene-leakes-tmz-01NeNe Leakes isn't done with "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... TMZ has learned producers want her to come back in a reduced role, and she's game.

Our sources say, although NeNe made it seem she was gone for good, the show's producers are still angling to have her appear periodically during the season.  

As we reported, NeNe bailed on the show because the money wasn't right. She's already committed to doing a primetime network sitcom, and the only way she'd continue on 'RHOA' was if they delivered a wheelbarrow full of cash ... to make the crushing workload worthwhile.

But our sources say NeNe is open to a part-time role on 'RHOA,' again if the money is right and it fits with her sitcom schedule.

We're told Bravo is absolutely interested, and the negotiations will begin soon.

Stay tuned.

Slim From 112

They Want to Strip Me

Of My 'Magic Mike' Royalties!

6/30/2015 8:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-slim-magic-mike-instagram-01"Magic Mike XXL" has been a dream come true for a huge '90s R&B group ... problem is, one of the lead singers isn't gonna see any of those dollar bills.

The group 112 is going to have a resu-erection with its song "Anywhere," which is featured in the flick. Now here's the rub. The lead singer, Slim, has filed for bankruptcy. It seems the official in charge of the case is a fan of the stripper film, because he's aware of Slim's involvement.

So the bankruptcy trustee has filed legal docs saying any profits Slim sees from the song or the movie must  be used to pay off his long list of creditors.  

Slim should tell the trustee to stuff it.

Drake is finally getting caught in the Kardashian web, dropping thousands while partying with Kendall Jenner and several friends at a London hotspot.

After headlining the Wireless Festival on Sunday, the rapper headed over to Chinawhite nightclub where he DJ'd and picked up the tab for fellow performer Kid Ink and 30 friends. Sources say the group included several famous Jenner pals -- Gigi Hadid, Joe Jonas, Rita Ora, and racers Lewis Hamilton and Tommy Hill.

We’re told they tore through at least 25 bottles of booze -- including champagne, vodka, tequila, and cognac and Drake took care of the bill … which came out to $15,000, plus an additional $1,000 for tip.

Kendall Jenner -- started very far from the bottom ... and is still no where near it. 

Tyga

It’s Settled ...

My Old Landlord Gets $80k

6/29/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-tyga-tmz-02Tyga ditching on a crap ton of rent payments -- nearly $100k -- is finally biting him in the ass, and if he doesn't pay up now ... it's REALLY gonna cost him.   

Tyga has a Monday deadline to fork over $80,000 to his ex-landlord in Calabasas. Both sides agreed on that amount to cover back rent payments. If you include interest ... he actually owed $124k, so the settlement is a sweet deal.

But obviously, paying on time isn't exactly Tyga's thing -- so during a hearing on Thursday ... the judge gave him a stern warning: Meet the deadline, or the landlord's gonna nail ya for the full $124,000.

Check city, bitch -- write one this weekend. Or else ...

Bill Cosby

Insurance Co. Wants Off the Hook ...

If Sexual Assault Allegations Stick

6/26/2015 2:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-bill-cosby-tmz-01Bill Cosby is being sued by a company that fears it might be on the hook if the comedian defamed 3 of his accusers by calling their claims BS.  

Cosby's homeowners insurance company has filed a lawsuit claiming it has absolutely no duty to pay a judgment stemming from the sexual assault allegations and denials. Many policies cover various misdeeds of the homeowners, but AIG Property Casualty Company says it is not responsible for claims arising out of sexual misconduct.

AIG not only wants to block Cosby, it has also named 3 accusers -- Tamara Green, Therese Serignese and Linda Traitz as defendants. All 3 claim Cosby not only molested them but defamed them when he called them liars.

AIG wants a judge to tell them all ... don't even try to collect a judgment from the company.
