Halle Berry would love for Gabriel Aubry to take a lesson from her 9-year-old co-star -- because the kid is killing it when it comes to making big money ... on his own.
Pierce Gagnon plays Halle's android son on the sci-fi show "Extant" -- and his paycheck is out of this world ... a cool $25K for every episode of season 1.
According to his contract -- which was filed with the court because he's a minor -- Pierce made $325K for the first season and will collect even more for season 2 -- $26,250 per episode.
Plus, he's locked into the contract for the next 6 years -- if the show lasts that long -- which means he could be a millionaire by the time he starts shaving.
Watch and learn, Gabriel ... is what Halle would say.
'Bad Religion' Guitarist
Gets One Treasured Item in Divorce
10/20/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bad Religion guitarist Greg Hetson is finally out of his disastrous marriage, and he's snatching back the one thing he wanted from his ex -- a poster ... that's all.
The divorce just became final, and it sounds crazy ... but when Hetson and his ex-wife Alia divvied up their property his ONLY demand was she hand over the poster. He got it, but we have no idea what it is.
The poster is so shrouded in mystery, it's only described in the divorce docs as being "framed."
Meanwhile, Alia gets artwork, art supplies, a vase collection, and a couple pieces of furniture. According to the docs Hetson won't pay monthly spousal support, but will fork over a one-time lump sum of $23K.
We tried contacting Hetson to find out about the poster ... of course he's not talking. Best guess? Gotta be a vintage Farrah.

... And It Wants Taco Bell
10/19/2014 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dammmmmmmmmmnn .... is pretty much all you can say about Kim Kardashian's ass-entuating outfit for a Sunday afternoon outing with Kanye West.
The couple hit up a theater in Calabasas for a movie date and on the way out Kim proudly displayed her trademark in cutoff jeans and a back-baring top -- then they hit up a Taco Bell drive-thru.
You can tell from the photo ... Kanye gives this rearview two thumbs up. Way up.
Not to be a buzzkill -- but rubbing your bare back on a movie theater seat? Risky business.
Letterman's Cue Card Guy
FIRED For Attacking Writer
10/19/2014 8:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
David Letterman's famous cue card guy on "Late Show" was given the boot this week ... after he says he cussed at the famous TV host backstage -- then attacked one of the writers.
Tony Mendez says he was given the boot this week over an incident that took place on Thursday ... but the real problem started the day before during a rehearsal for the show -- according to the NY Post.
Tony says he's had a problem with show writer Bill Scheft for a long time ... and during the rehearsal he snapped when Scheft interrupted his convo with Letterman -- so he told the writer to get off his back.
But when Letterman got angry at him for it Tony snapped ... telling Dave, "You're the one who has a sour disposition, mother****r."
Tony claims he was stewing all night over what happened ... and when he came into work the next day he immediately approached Scheft, then rougly grabbed him by the shirt. Sources told the Post he threw the writer up against a wall.
He was immediately removed from the building and terminated from his position -- but offered severance ... his full salary and health insurance until the show ends in May.
However the famous cue card guy says he's not gonna hold a grudge against Dave over this, adding, "He is the best, the most generous boss I have ever had."
Cause of Death May Remain Mystery
Because NO AUTOPSY
10/19/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We may never know exactly what killed Joan Rivers ... because a decision was made NOT to do an autopsy ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the NYC Medical Examiner tell us ... Melissa Rivers was despondent when Joan died and told doctors she did not want an autopsy performed. According to New York law, doctors will honor such a request if there's no evidence of criminality associated with the death.
The Medical Examiner has concluded the cause of death was deprivation of oxygen which caused irreversible brain damage. We're told they determined the "predictable" complication involved the procedure itself and not Propofol.
Here's the problem ... we're told without an autopsy it's impossible to pinpoint the nature of the problem. As one source said, an autopsy might reveal a puncture in the throat or other trauma.
The only way Joan's family might get a definitive answer is if a doctor or nurse owns up to a possible mistake ... and even then it's just someone's word.
So the precise cause of Joan's death may forever stay a mystery.

In Celeb Hacking Scandal
10/19/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A sizzling model had nude photos hacked from the iCloud ... and the perp gave her an ultimatum -- ante up some cash, or the world will see your naked body.
Madison Louch says she realized on Sept. 7 she was locked out of her iCloud. Later that day she got a call from a guy who bragged he hacked her account. He told her he was "notorious" for hacking into the accounts of celebs and posting their nude photos online.
Madison says the guy demanded $900 or else he'd "ruin her modeling career." He ordered her to deposit the money in a brown Trader Joe's bag in a planter located at a building on Fairfax Ave in Hollywood.
Madison freaked out and called the LAPD, which then planned a sting. Turns out a woman came to the location at the exact time, grabbed the bag and cops swarmed her.
The woman -- Jamie Munoz -- told cops she knew she was picking up money for someone who was threatening to post nude photos, but she says she wasn't part of the plot. She gave cops the name of the guy -- Nicholas Douglas from Vancouver.
Munoz ended up pleading guilty to attempted extortion and got 3 years probation and community service -- no jail.
Law enforcement says they are still on the hunt to find out if there is such as person as Nicholas Douglas and if he's the hacker.

The Tax Man Cumeth
For Porn Pay
10/19/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The IRS has learned a thing or 2 about self-pleasure from Octomom ... because the agency is now pleasuring itself by going after her unpaid taxes on her masturbation video.
Uncle Sam and his buddies believe Nadya Suleman raked in at least $116,000 in 2012, largely from the tape. They're demanding that she ante up all payroll records to show exactly what she made ... and they clearly think she shorted them.
Octo caught the eye of the feds after she pled no contest to a welfare fraud charge in July.
It looks like the wacky tape didn't have legs, because in 2013 her take plunged to around $8K.
Tax records show Suleman collected about $116K from her management company in 2012.
Here's the thing ... who needs to look a second time ... seriously.
