Baby Mama Has Texts ...
He Wanted an Abortion
10/24/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
10:50 A.M. PDT -- Pauly just sent a Tweet that seems to address the situation: "Sometimes in life things aren't planned and they may even scare you at first, but they end up being a blessing."
Pauly D wanted his baby mama to have an abortion ... and here's how we know. His baby mama is trying to sell texts he sent to her urging her to end the pregnancy.
TMZ has learned ... Amanda Markert is trying to hawk the text messages to various media outlets in which Pauly asked her to end the pregnancy and he offered to foot the bill.
Sources tell TMZ ... at the time Pauly felt it was the right thing to do, partly because of the way the baby was conceived. There was no plan to have a child ... and the fact is it was a one-night stand.
As TMZ first reported ... Pauly has come around in a big way, not only trying to see the baby but he's fighting for custody.
By the way, get this -- sources close to Pauly say Amanda actually took the money for the abortion, but then ... obviously ... decided to keep the child.
Pauly D & Baby Mama
The Boozy Vegas Hookup
... Caught on Camera
10/24/2013 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hours before Pauly D knocked up Amanda Markert, they were both raging at a crazy pool party in Vegas ... and TMZ has several pics of the boozy scene right before the drunken conception.
The two met at the legendary Rehab pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel in the summer of 2012 ... Pauly was working the DJ booth and Amanda was partying her face off in a smokin' hot bikini.
At one point during the party, Amanda somehow got on stage (probably because she's hot) ... and sprayed down the crowd with a bottle of champagne. Later she was seen double-fisting novelty-sized cocktails.
Soon after that, she got some one-on-one time with Pauly -- and 9 months later she gave birth to his daughter. A true love story ...
But the connection they had in Vegas stayed in Vegas ... 'cause now Pauly and Amanda HATE each other's guts and are at war over custody and child support.
Vegas baby, VEGAS!!!

Pauly D & Baby Mama
They Hate Each Other
10/23/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Pauly D and his baby mama are at war, TMZ has learned ... and there's a big fight over custody and cash.
Sources connected to the baby mama and baby daddy tell TMZ ... Pauly doesn't think the woman is a fit mother -- he points to the fact that she once worked at Hooters. He's also concerned because the woman, who's only 25 years old, has another kid.
Pauly and the woman, who goes by Amanda, have filed dueling court docs. We're told Pauly wants some sort of custody of his daughter -- but the level of custody is unclear. Sources say Pauly has not seen the child, who was born in May, but obviously he's looking to change that.
We're also told the baby mama is demanding child support ... and even though Pauly says he's ready and willing to step up and take care of the kid financially ... he feels like she's treating the kid like a winning lottery ticket. Exhibit A ... the woman recently posed the baby in a high chair that's covered in $100 bills.
As for how they hooked up, we're told it was one drunken night in Vegas ... but the kid isn't bringing them any closer. In fact, one source tells us they straight up hate each other.
Stay tuned ...

Knocking On My Backdoor
10/22/2013 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Seems James Deen may have a brand new eskimo brother ... a guy named Brian Dawe ... 'cause it appears B.D. is now dating "Backdoor Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham.
Dawe and Farrah were pictured on a romantic-ish stroll in Florida a few days ago -- with Farrah's child nowhere in sight.
Dawe has a website -- and says he's a DJ, who says he's "rocked the stage" with stars like Rihanna, Ke$ha, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Alesso, Travie McCoy, Lil Jon, Dev, Busta Rhymes, Trick Daddy, DJ Khaled and 2 Live Crew.
Good luck Dawe -- you've got some big ... really big ... shoes to fill.
If NJ Had a Baseball Team
They'd Be 'The Losers!'
10/14/2013 7:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If New Jersey had a baseball team, it should be called "THE LOSERS," this according to Snooki ... talk about biting the hand that fed ya.
It's pretty shocking, considering the MTV star spent several years in NJ ... where she lived, boozed and shot her reality show.
But right after she made the comment on the way out of Boa Steakhouse in L.A., the backtracking began ...
Snooks insisted the comment was NOT made to be a shot at Jersey on the whole, but more of a shot at HERSELF and the "Jersey Shore" cast, because "we were all turds back then."
You buyin' that?

'Buckwild' star Anna Davis got the crap smacked out her this week in Kentucky ... by a MASSIVE pole covered in strobe lights -- and TMZ obtained the nerve-wracking video.
The smackdown happened at Whiskey Barrel Bar and Dance Thursday night in Richmond -- where Anna was hosting an event alongside the DJ ... and the rig above collapsed.
It's unclear why the structure fell -- but Anna says her neck, back and head have been "throbbing" since ... and she plans to see a doctor if the pain persists.
Calls to Whiskey Barrel went unanswered.
Doctor Dré on

'Chris Christie Is Retarded'
10/1/2013 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
10:03 AM PDT -- JWoww just took to Twitter to explain herself and apologize -- sorta. She says she was caught off guard when she made her comments. But she still calls Christie "disgusting and judgmental" for his views on gay marriage. She apologized for her earlier choice of words .. but not for how she feels about the Gov.
Chris Christie is "retarded" ... so says Jwoww who (along with Snooki) is clearly still feuding with the Jersey governor after a nasty run in with the guy earlier this year.
The Jersey gals were leaving Boa Steakhouse on the Sunset Strip last night when we brought up CC -- and that's when the smacktalk began.
"He's a disgrace to New Jersey," Jwoww said ... adding, "Just like we were."
The two sides have been beefin' for a while (Chris doesn't like the show, the girls don't understand why) ... and it all came to a head back in May during an encounter on the Jersey Shore.
At the time, Snooki told Christie, "I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.”
Don't hold your breath ...
Blames Pill Addiction on
'Dancing w/ the Stars' Injury
9/10/2013 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino says his addiction to prescription painkillers began after suffering a neck injury on "Dancing with the Stars" back in 2010 ... and he's still battling to stay sober.
We broke the story ... Sitch checked into rehab back in March 2012 -- and after his people initially insisted the MTV star was just suffering from exhaustion, they eventually admitted he was hooked on opiates.
Now, 32-year-old Situation is talking about his battle with prescription drugs ... telling the AP his addiction was so bad, he could barely dress himself.
"All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn’t do that. The shirt was laid out, the belt, the pants, everything. The shower was on. I couldn’t even get out of bed."
Sitch says it was at that moment, he realized he had a problem -- "If I can’t [get dressed], how am I going to continue?”
The former "Jersey Shore" star says he's still taking medication for his injury -- but undergoes counseling to keep his addiction in check.
He's also a paid spokesman for the company that makes his pills -- and participates in a program that helps spread awareness about opiate prescription painkiller addictions.
