Jesse Williams Gets His Kid on 6th Bday Ex Bent Outta Shape Over Yoga

Jesse Williams will be allowed to be with his kid for her bday -- but he had to fight with his ex over it ... who tried positioning things in her favor with yoga.

The "Grey's Anatomy" star won his latest legal battle against ex-wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, after she refused to let their 5-year-old daughter, Sadie, be with her pops this weekend to celebrate her 6th birthday ... even though Jesse insisted it was his turn under their agreement.

In court docs, obtained by TMZ, Jesse argued that Aryn would still get to be with Sadie for most of her bday (Dec. 6), and all he wanted was for mom to drop Sadie off with him at 6 PM, like usual, and let Sadie hang out 'til he could drop her back off Monday. NBD, right?

WRONG ... at least according to Aryn, who argued in her own court docs that SHE actually deserved to keep Sadie this weekend 'cause she recently missed some mother-daughter time with her due to a work trip she recently had to take -- and wants to make up for it now.

Turns out, that work trip was a yoga retreat in India ... which Jesse lays out as something that's seemingly unrelated to work at all. He lists the classes attended -- like "Tea Break," "Tour of Dalai Lama's Residence" and "Finding Your Purpose" -- and calls BS on her excuse.

The reason he's so against Sadie staying home with mom on his weekend ... he says he had a full weekend of plans lined up for her birthday -- a Disney trip, a Nutcracker play, etc.

Welp, the court sided with Jesse. A judge wrote they couldn't see the connection between Aryn's yoga trip and work ... and insisted she could make up her time at another date.

Namaste ...

Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan Divorce Turning Nasty ... FaceTime, Child Custody Allegations

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan's divorce has turned nasty ... all over child support, custody and allegations of FaceTime sabotage.

Our Jenna sources say she was stunned and super upset when Channing filed legal docs Tuesday asking a judge to come up with a holiday custody schedule. Our sources call it grandstanding, because Jenna had already signed off on the entire schedule. Our Channing sources counter Jenna agreed to some of the schedule but not all of it ... thus the need for the judge.

But, that's just the beginning. Several sources say, although Channing and Jenna had a custody schedule for 6-year-old Everly, there were times Jenna was working and asked to change the schedule but Channing refused.

Child support has also become a bone of contention. Our Jenna sources say Channing isn't contributing, but our Channing sources say there's a very specific, joint account with community funds that cover Everly's expenses.

And, yet another issue -- communication. We're told when one parent has Everly, that parent has to allow the other parent to FaceTime with the girl every day. So, Jenna sources say Channing doesn't allow her to FaceTime. They also claim when Jenna has the child Channing almost never FaceTime's with her.

Our Channing sources call BS ... saying Channing does indeed FaceTime with Everly when she's with Jenna, but they say Jenna's so difficult Channing just FaceTime's through the nanny.

Jenna's rep, Nicole Perna, tells us, "Jenna's priority has always been, and continues to be, her daughter's well-being."

Like we said ... lots of issues. But, hey, at least they're both legally single, right?

Channing Tatum I Want a Custody Schedule ... So I Can Be With My Daughter

Channing Tatum says divorce has been tough when it comes to figuring out how to co-parent, so he's asking the family law judge to set some groundrules on which parent gets the kid and when.

Channing has filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, asking the judge to create a schedule for various holidays, including Thanksgiving, Halloween, Winter break, daughter Everly's birthday, Father's Day and Mother's Day. He also wants each parent to have consistent FaceTime with Everly.

Channing says the problem is pretty common ... he and ex-wife Jenna Dewan have busy lives. According to the docs, "Due to our constantly changing work schedules, we have had conflict over adjustments to our schedules to ensure both parties are able to have equal time with our daughter, Everly."

According to the docs, Channing wants a co-parenting counselor to help assist with scheduling-related matters to avoid conflict. Translation -- he and Jenna can't work it out without some help, which is pretty common.

Channing also wants permission to take 6-year-old Everly out of school for up to 5 days per year for special "work-related occasions." He says, "[Jenna] and I are fortunate to have employment that offers us unique and once in a lifetime opportunities. I would like to be able to share these experiences with Everly and believe that Everly would benefit from getting to take advantage of such opportunities."

And, there's this sign of the times ... Channing is asking the judge to prohibit him or Jenna from using Everly's image, name or likeness in any for-profit sponsorship, advertisement, campaign without the other party's consent.

Amber Portwood Alleged Machete Incident on Audio ... Argument on Video

CUTS LIKE A KNIFE
Without A Crystal Ball

10:11 AM PT -- A rep for Amber tells TMZ, "These recordings, obtained without Amber's knowledge and disseminated without her consent, serve as a painful reminder of a challenging and complicated time in her life she would like to move on from. Her full focus continues to remain on reaching a move favorable custody agreement for her son, James."

Amber Portwood alleged machete incident with her baby daddy was captured on audio -- and it's pretty terrifying to listen to, as Amber can apparently be heard hacking at a door.

Video and audio of the entire blowout between the "Teen Mom OG" star and Andrew Glennon from this past 4th of July has surfaced, and it gives you a sneak peek as to what led up to the alleged shoe throwing and machete wielding from Amber.

AMBER'S BLOW-UP
Without A Crystal Ball

Ring video that the family has set up in their home shows Andrew and Amber getting ready to head out with their 1-year-old son, James, to catch fireworks. But, the family has to turn around after leaving in their car due to a main road being closed ... which pissed off AP.

You can then hear Amber unloading on Andrew, telling him to STFU after he chastises her for being ill-prepared every 4th of July. The argument escalates after they head out in the car yet again, after which the family comes back to the house for a 2nd time.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department

This is where s*** kinda hits the fan ... as you can see and hear Amber threatens to toss a bunch of Andrew's stuff out on the street, and then you hear Andrew ask if she chugged a bunch of her meds in one sitting ... the implication being she's threatening to kill herself.

Without A Crystal Ball

At this point, Andrew gets behind a door -- supposedly while holding their son -- and you hear Amber demanding he open the door. Then comes the hacking -- 3 strikes, from what Andrew says is a machete. Amber seems to acknowledge it is, in fact, a machete.

IT DOESN'T ADD UP
MTV

As you know ... Amber copped a plea deal in the DV case -- pleading guilty to domestic battery and intimidation, this after initially denying any such machete attack.

She and Andrew are currently locked in a custody battle over the kid -- he wants to move to Malibu, but she's trying to prevent that by any means.

'RHOA' Star Eva Marcille Don't Give Custody to My Baby Daddy ... He's a Violent, 'Ticking Time Bomb'

Exclusive
TMZ.com

11:00 AM PT -- Kevin McCall Jr. just fired back at his ex, with his attorney, Adamma McKinnon, telling TMZ that his past shouldn't hinder his ability to be there for his daughter right now. She says, "Fatherhood or the right to be a Father is a highly esteemed privilege. Each and every human being has a shortcoming and has made a mistake a time or two; yet mistakes or shortcomings should never prohibit a father from serving as a father to his son or daughter."

McKinnon adds, "Such denial becomes a disservice to the innocent child as it serves a child's best interests to foster a bond with both parents. I look forward to working with counsel for Mrs. Sterling to ensure that Mr. McCall will be able to enjoy his privilege of fatherhood with their lovely daughter going forward and under the direction of the presiding Court."

She finishes by saying, "Mr. McCall's primary focus has always been and will continue to be the best interests of his daughter."

Eva Marcille is pleading with a judge to keep her baby daddy away from their daughter, because she fears he's capable of going on a killing spree like Chris Dorner.

The 'RHOA' star filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, responding to Kevin McCall Jr.'s request to have the judge reevaluate their custody arrangement for 5-year-old Marley Rae -- but Eva says there's no need to because her ex is dangerous.

In the docs, Eva claims Kevin is unstable and has admitted to her he could do worse damage than Dorner -- the ex-cop who went on a killing rampage in 2013 that ended with a manhunt and fatal shootout in Southern California.

Eva also claims Kevin praised a man that killed her good friend and himself in a murder-suicide. She alleges he referred to the guy as his "hero." Eva even included a screenshot from one of Kevin's IG posts where he seemed to make ominous threats against her ... and called himself a "ticking time bomb."

Adding insult to injury, Eva says Kevin's been wrapped up in more legal woes -- including a recent domestic violence charge -- which she believes should disqualify him from spending time with their daughter.

According to the docs, Eva claims Kevin's not only been an absentee father for most of Marley's life, but he also hasn't paid a dime of child support.

She says nothing needs to change in terms of custody, and she wants a judge to toss Kevin's request entirely.

We reached out to Kevin ... so far, no word back.

Jeremy Renner Ex-Wife Takes Ava to the Pumpkin Patch ... Amid Custody Battle

Jeremy Renner's ex-wife seems to be trying to show why she should get sole custody of their daughter as the court battle wages on ... opting for a day in the hay as exhibit A.

Sonni Pacheco was seen Saturday with her and Jeremy's 6-year-old daughter, Ava, at a pumpkin patch in L.A., where it was just mom and the kid enjoying themselves. In photos and video we got of their outing, you can see Ava having a great time.

She goes up and down an inflatable slide a few times while Sonni looks on, and certainly seemed down with the festive scenery all around her as she held hands with her ma.

It even looks like there might've been some other parents there with their own kids tagging along, as Sonni was seen mingling with a woman and a guy in a black shirt. Safe to say, it was a cozy looking scene -- the opposite of what's been going on behind closed doors.

MOTHER OF THE YEAR
@LionsShareNews

As we've reported ... Jeremy and Sonni are locked in a bitter custody battle right now, with allegations being hurled against each other left and right. Sonni has said that Jeremy is a substance-abusing loose canon who threatened to kill her as well as himself.

He denied that, and claimed she was the one with substance abuse issues ... not to mention being sex obsessed and introducing that type of content to their kid. He's also called her mentally unstable and a liar, who's only attempting to smear him for revenge.

Both parents are out for sole custody, and with this ... it looks like Sonni's the first to strike with a good photo-op. Time will tell if it helps her cause.

Jeremy Renner My Ex-Wife's an Unstable Liar

Exclusive
TMZ/Alamy

Jeremy Renner has come out swinging against the latest attack by his ex-wife, claiming she's a woman scorned and a liar who concocted grotesque allegations against him out of vengeance.

Renner claims in new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Sonni Pacheco went off the rails in 2015 when Jeremy made it clear ... he rebuked her overtures to resume their marriage. He says she then went on a vicious campaign, falsely accusing him of physically and sexually abusing their 6-year-old daughter, drugging her and being mentally unstable. He notes Children's Services cleared him of any wrongdoing.

In the legal docs, filed by Jeremy's lawyer, Susan Wiesner, he claims she manipulated a photo to make it appear he had shot a gun in his house while daughter Ava was sleeping. He says no such thing ever happened and the photo was "grossly doctored."

He calls her claim that he's a homicidal maniac "absolute nonsense."

As for Sonni's substance abuse allegations ... Jeremy calls BS. He says he's been submitting urine tests every other day, and every test has been clean. He says despite the fact he's not an addict, he's tried to placate Sonni by hiring a sober living coach and mentor.

He says there will be irreparable harm if Sonni gets her way and he's limited to supervised visitation. In fact, Jeremy wants Sonni to have supervised visitation because he believes she's unstable.

He notes he's been the one who takes care of Ava most of the time ... doting over her and comforting her when she's ill.

He also says Sonni's claim that he threatened to blow his brains out is absurd, and she got one of his ex-girlfriends to lie for her about this.

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Eva Marcille's got some baby daddy drama on her hands ... he claims she's blocking his QT with their daughter, so he wants a judge's help.

Kevin McCall Jr.'s attorney -- Adamma Mckinnon -- filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, claiming Eva's tried to alienate their daughter from him ever since she moved from Los Angeles to Georgia in October 2015.

According to docs, Kevin's requesting a change to their previous custody order, so they can share joint physical and legal custody of 5-year-old Marley Rae.

Kevin says it's in Marley's best interest for them to spend more time together and "foster a parental bond." Kevin also wants Marley to take his last name. Right now she's Marley Sterling -- the last name of Eva's current husband, Michael Sterling.

Nipsey Hussle Baby Mama Says ... I'm Not an Unfit Mother

Exclusive
TMZ

Nipsey Hussle's baby mama is fighting his family that wants to keep custody of their daughter away from her, saying they're denying her a basic right -- contact with her flesh and blood.

Tanisha Foster says in legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she and Nipsey shared responsibility for parenting 10-year-old Emani.

She seems to be rebutting the family's contention she's not capable of caring for the child, saying they are ignoring the fact Nipsey provided for her ... setting her up in an apartment and providing for her livelihood. She's insinuating she's been cut off and that's not what Nipsey would want.

She also says, she's not the only person involved in the case with a "problem past," but she says she's choosing not to "sling mud." 

She says she can't pay rent, she's been cut off financially and is in desperate shape. Foster notes the lifestyle she and Emani were used to before Nipsey's death won't be the same ... but she is willing to make it work to the best of her ability. She's asking the judge to at least give her visitation rights.

Foster says, "If everyone was truly interested in doing what is best for Emani, they would treat me as her mother and not in the manner that they have.

Nipsey's family was awarded temporary custody of Emani, claiming Tanisha is an unfit mother.

Audrina Patridge My Ex Screwed Up Custody Deal ... Cops Have to Step in

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty

Audrina Patridge is pissed her ex-husband, Corey Bohan, made a big blunder in their custody arrangement ... one that turned her holiday into a stress-filled day of panic about their daughter. 

As you might know by now, Audrina meets Corey at the Costa Mesa Police Department every time they exchange custody of their little girl, Kirra, but sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ ... Corey totally blew off their planned exchange last week on the 4th of July. 

We're told Corey was supposed to hand over Kirra at 10 AM, but he never showed at the police station, and refused to answer Audrina's frantic calls and texts. 

Making matters worse for Audrina ... while she's wondering where her child is, an earthquake struck sending everyone into a panic. We're told Audrina was freaking out even more due to the added fear of not knowing where Corey was with Kirra. 

Law enforcement sources tell us ... police conducted a welfare check at Corey's house around 10:45 AM, and he was home with Kirra. We're told his interaction with cops was calm, but he told officers it was HIS day, not Audrina's to have their daughter.

Getty

They eventually ended up meeting at 7 PM for the custody exchange. Kirra was fine, but according to their custody agreement ... Corey screwed the pooch. He's supposed to return Kirra to Audrina every Thursday at 10 AM, and they alternate Independence Days. Audrina gets her on odd years ... like 2019.

Our sources say Audrina wants to file a contempt of court order against Corey. We reached out to her attorneys, but so far nothing's been filed.

Audrina and Corey have been divorced since 2017, and they've had many, many custody issues since then. 

Jenelle Evans' Ex Nathan Griffith She Won't Let Me See My Son ... So I'll Fight her in Court

Exclusive
JENELLE'S DOING ME DIRTY
TMZ.com

Jenelle Evans may have won the battle but her ex, Nathan Griffith, vows to win the war ... cause he's taking her to court again to regain primary custody of their 5-year-old son, Kaiser.

Nathan hopped on "TMZ Live" Tuesday and laid out his case on why Jenelle's an unfit parent and why Kaiser belongs with him. He's not happy Jenelle regained custody of their 5-year-old son, and to add insult to injury, he says she's being vindictive.

Nathan says Jenelle is trying to ruin his relationship with Kaiser by blocking his number ... meaning he can't communicate with his son by FaceTime or phone.

He says he wants way more than a phone call ... he wants primary custody, because of his special relationship with his kid.

As we reported ... Jenelle regained custody of Kaiser and her and David Eason's 2-year-old daughter, Ensley, after weeks of testimony in their custody trial. 

Jenelle Evans Reunites with Kids for Kaiser's bday ... Brings David Along Too

Jenelle Evans and her two of her baby daddies put their differences aside this weekend for the sake of their kids -- reuniting the whole gang for young Kaiser's birthday.

The ex-'Teen Mom' star and her hubby, David Eason, joined Nathan Griffin at his mother's house, where they threw Kaiser a 5th birthday party. Jenelle's mom, Barbara, brought 2-year-old Ensley (Jenelle and David's daughter) as well as 9-year-old Jace (Jenelle's other son from a previous relationship) to the shindig for a pool-themed bash.

According to reports, the party was an unsupervised visit on the part of Jenelle and David -- who temporarily lost custody of all their kids after David killed the family dog

It's unclear if getting together like this without a third party monitoring breaks the court ordered parameters of the troubled parents' time with their kids ... but it seems things went off without much drama, which is good considering David and Nate's rocky past.

Jenelle posted a bunch of photos of the party, and captioned it by writing ... "Can’t believe you are 5 already! You might be getting older but you’re still my baby." 

BACK IN COURT
TMZ.com

Jenelle and David were back in court last week, presumably to petition the judge to let them have the kids back in their custody ... but it also likely served as a chance to see them face-to-face. The couple has agreed to a number of conditions to get the children back.

Looks like they've chosen to override the court when it suits everyone involved. Congrats?

Kimora Lee Simmons Not Keeping Our Kid from Djimon ... He's Just Absent!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Kimora Lee Simmons isn't keeping her son with Djimon Hounsou away from him, and definitely didn't ruin his Father's Day either -- it's all his own doing ... at least that's what people close to her are claiming.

Sources closely tied to Kimora say Djimon's recent griping that he wasn't able to see his son, Kenzo, for the holiday -- and suggesting it was Kimora's fault -- is completely backward ... 'cause he had every opportunity to make plans, but simply didn't.

FATHER'S DAY BLUES
FIA Pictures

You'll recall ... Djimon told a pap this week that he'd gotten screwed out of seeing -- let alone being able to talk to -- his son, and seemed to be pointing the finger at his baby mama.

We're told Sunday's missed opportunity to get together with the kid is just the latest in what we're told has become common in their relationship ... that Djimon allegedly doesn't go out of his way to make plans.

Our sources -- who are directly knowledgeable about this -- tell us Kimora has an open door policy when it comes to visitation. We're told she encourages the whole fam coming together as often as possible -- holidays, birthdays, etc. -- but Djimon hardly ever takes her up on it.

We've also been pointed to a lack of fresh Kenzo pics on Djimon's social media accounts, which seems to back up his Father's Day post. He put up a pic of him and Kenzo, but it appeared to be a throwback shot of the two of them together.

We're told the reason for that is simple ... Djimon doesn't hang out with him enough to post newer pics, which he has no one else to blame for but himself.

Our sources says Djimon doesn't seem himself lately, and that it's starting to play out in public.

Mama June Honey Boo Boo Won't Move Back 'Til Geno's Gone Gone Gone

EXCLUSIVE

Mama June may have moved back into her home, but that doesn't mean her famous daughter is following behind anytime soon ... quite the opposite, actually.

Sources close to Mama June's family tell TMZ ... 13-year-old Alana -- AKA Honey Boo Boo -- adamantly refuses to move back in with her troubled mother, as long as she's got her BF, Geno, hanging off her hip.

We're told Geno being in the picture is a straight-up nonstarter for Alana. She wants MJ to ditch Geno ... and get herself into rehab.

IN A BAD WAY
TMZ.com

There's grave reason for concern. TMZ broke the story ... Geno was so wasted behind the wheel a few days back, he crashed into Mama June's home and couldn't even walk. He collapsed on the ground and Mama June needed help from a neighbor to drag Geno inside.

OUT OF CONTROL
WE tv

HBB begged her mom to straighten out her life a while back, tearfully pointing out that she's currently living with her older sister, Pumpkin ... and not by choice but by necessity. It's pretty obvious she wants to be with her mom, but not in a chaotic, unstable and dangerous environment.

And, there's this ... we're told if push comes to shove and nothing changes, Pumpkin will go to court and fight to gain custody of her little sister. Our sources say so far, June hasn't expressed interest in getting her daughter back.

Tough situation, for sure.

Djimon Hounsou Crappy Father's Day ... I Haven't Seen My Son in Forever

FATHER'S DAY BLUES
FIA Pictures

Djimon Hounsou had himself a rough Father's Day because it sounds like he didn't even get a chance to see his son ... whom he shares with Kimora Lee Simmons.

The actor was visiting an L.A. County building Monday -- where it looked like he was handling some biz -- when a photog asked how his Father's Day went. Djimon didn't mince words ... he says it would've been nice to have seen his and Kimora's kid, Kenzo, let alone a convo.

The camera guy asks point blank how long it's been since he's seen the boy? Djimon holds up a five, but doesn't get specific about time frames. He then says he can't even recall.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Oddly enough, Djimon posted a photo of him and Kenzo together on Sunday ... but it's unclear if it's just an old photograph he threw up for the holiday.

As Djimon walks back to his car, someone on the street asks about fighting for custody -- but he quickly makes it clear that he's not engaging in a custody battle with his baby mama.

Kimora and Djimon dated for 5 years between 2007 and 2012 -- they had one child together, who was born in 2009.

When the photog asked if Djimon had any message for Kimora herself ... he scoffs and closes the door in frustration. Something tells us trouble could be brewing here ...

Jenelle Evans' Ex Reached Out After His Spat with David ... She Wasn't Having It!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans' 2nd baby daddy extended an olive branch to her 3rd baby daddy, David Eason, after the men got into a heated dispute outside court -- but they're nowhere near a peace treaty.

Sources connected to the exes tell TMZ ... Nathan Griffith actually reached out to Jenelle on Tuesday after she and David got pissed at him. You'll recall, they called him out for talking to our camera guy. David called Nathan a blabbermouth -- and flipped him off in the process.

We're told Nathan wasn't happy with how things were left as they drove away -- he does share 4-year-old Kaiser with Jenelle -- so he shot her a text to clarify he wasn't trying to do damage by talking to the media, he was just chit-chatting.

Our sources say Jenelle didn't buy it, and thinks Nathan was looking for dirt on her and David's child custody case. BTW, Jenelle got into it with her own mom after Tuesday's court hearing too. Tough family day, for sure.

SQUARING OFF

Back to Nathan though ... we're told he thinks Jenelle and David need to drop their us versus the world attitude, and he told them so.

Seems like his advice is falling on deaf ears -- the Easons are still fighting to regain custody of their 3 children.
