Chris Brown's daughter Royaltygot a phone call from her dad on her first birthday ... but a source close to his baby mama says that's it.
Sources close to Royalty's mom, Nia Guzman, tell TMZ ... Brown didn't show up for the 1-year-old's birthday, didn't send a gift and didn't contribute to the cost of the Chuck E. Cheese's shindig. Nia says her boyfriend, King Ba, paid for the whole thing.
Ba -- who's listed on the birth certificate as Royalty's birth father -- seemed to take pleasure in Chris' absence and captioned one pic of Royalty by writing, "Wouldn't Miss This Day For Anything In This World."
Chris' people say he was in Miami shooting a music video with Pit Bull, and tried Facetiming with his daughter but Nia's phone was acting wonky.
United Airlines has a problem with crying infants according to alternative rocker Sarah Blackwood ... who says she was kicked off a flight because her 1-year-old son got fussy -- but the airline claims the kid was a safety risk.
Sarah -- Walk Off the Earth singer -- is 7 months pregnant and says UA kicked her off the San Fran to Vancouver flight ... after less than 10 minutes of Giorgio squirming and crying. She says he fell asleep after the fit, but for the airline the damage was done. Sarah says the plane stopped taxiing and returned her to the terminal.
Sarah's fellow passengers saw her and her son get escorted off the plane -- and many of them took to social media to express their outrage over the situation. Let's face it ... babies cry on planes all the time.
We contacted United and a rep says the flight crew made a difficult decision, but made the correct one “based solely on safety concerns." The rep claims, "the child was not seated, as required by federal regulation to ensure passenger safety, and was repeatedly in the aisle of the aircraft before departure and during taxi."
Sarah's calling BS on that. On TMZ Live, she told us she was in a window seat and her fellow passengers can vouch for her that Giorgio was not cruising the aisles.
Sarah also recorded a sympathetic United employee ... who suggested she use the power of social media to put pressure on the airline.
Rick Ross is getting personal in his legal battle with 50 Cent... saying the only reason 50 sued him is to cover up the fact he's just not as famous as he used to be.
As TMZ first reported, 50 sued Ross to cover his own ass in a lawsuit he's facing over a leaked sex tape ... claiming it is Ross' fault the video was posted in the first place ... so Ross should pay, not him.
But Ross -- through his lawyer, Xavier Donaldson -- says 50's only gunning for him in "another attempt to draw attention to his descending entertainment career and one of several desperate, last minute attempts he's made to avoid and deflect legal and financial responsibility for his own actions."
Donaldson says he's yet to be served with the suit, but plans to fight it aggressively.
Get Charlie Sheena towel ... a BIG one ... or maybe just a life preserver -- 'cause the guy was absolutely drowning in his own sweat at 1:30 AM in Hollywood.
This video is insane, and literally soaking wet. We saw Charlie slipping out of Sycamore Studios early Thursday morning ... where a bunch of Justin Bieber fans also happened to be hanging out waiting for Justin to exit.
It's unclear what the hell Charlie was doing at the studio at that time -- we're pretty sure he's not recording an album ... but who knows with him.
Just watch ... screaming Bieber fans, a seriously drenched warlock ... oh, and a one-finger salute to Charlie's fave TMZer.
Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba's e-cigarette vapor pissed off a Vegas concertgoer so badly ... the guy put an ass whupping on Axl Rose's axman.
It's not the most rock 'n' roll brawl we've ever heard of ... but here's what went down. Ashba was at Planet Hollywood over Memorial Day weekend to see Romeo Santos perform. Our sources say when the guy said something about the e-cig ... Ashba shot back, "What are you going to do about it, buddy?"
That question sparked the fight, and we're told the guy's girlfriend even got in the mix.
Security escorted all of them out, but cops determined Ashba was the victim ... and the couple got cited for misdemeanor battery.
New Found Glory’s guitarist Chad Gilbert, just saved a very special horse from getting turned into glue.
Chad tells TMZ he was doing a Twitter search recently for fan reactions to the band’s tour, and he came across an ad for an old mare that happens to share the band's name, but was just hours from getting slaughtered.
After doing some digging, he found out it would only cost a measly $350 to rescue the ole girl -- so he got approval from his bandmates to adopt her. Chad says, “everyone thought it would be great for the band."
He says they got the cash to auctioneer just in time, and then -- with the help of Freedom4Horses -- found an owner in Texas with wide open spaces where she can roam.
The new stable owner's gonna get NFG gussied up before the band comes to visit their horse. Of course.
There could be a slurricane heading for Oakland ... 'cause rap legend E-40 says if the Golden State Warriors squad wins the NBA title, they'll get UNLIMITED booze from his winery for the rest of the year!!!
FYI -- E-40 is a major player in the booze biz ... he's the owner of the Earl Stevens Selections wine company ... and also puts out the "Slurricane" cocktail drink.
He's also a HUGE Warriors fan ... and made the team the following offer:
"If they win the Western Conference I will supply them with a celebration toast with Slurricane."
"If they win the NBA Finals, the whole team will get as many bottles of my Mangoscato wine from Earl Stevens Selections as they want until next season begins."
Mr. 40 adds, "I am very confident they are going to bring the title back home and do it for the YAH AREA!!!! We won’t stop 'til we get a ring!"
So a rabbi and Ice Cube walk into a casino, and the rabbi catches an anti-Semitic fueled ass whuppin' -- at least that's what the rabbi's claiming, but Cube says that's a load of crap.
P. Taras, who says he's a rabbi ... tells TMZ he was at the MGM Detroit on May 24 when he literally bumped into Cube outside an elevator.
Taras claims he said something like ... hey, watch out -- and the rapper/actor responded by having his boys attack. While he was getting stomped, Taras claims he heard several epithets. He thinks that's because he was wearing a yarmulke.
Taras has filed a lawsuit against Cube for assault and battery, and wants $2 million for his troubles.
Ice Cube's rep says, "Not only are these accusations a lie, he doesn't even know who this guy is."
Lil Boosiefirst heard big cheers from a NYC crowd, and then huge groans .. because fans watched him vomit on stage -- and he tells us it's all because he lost some very important medication.
Boosie -- a known diabetic -- says there was a miscommunication during his travel, and the bag with his meds went to Philly ... while he went to New York. He went on stage last night without getting his insulin shot.
He wants his fans to know everything's cool now -- he's got his Rx, and is on his way to Nebraska to tear down the stage.
As Boosie puts it, "S**t happens when you have diabetes but I feel good now.”
