That didn't take long ... DJ Khaled's clearly a believer in carrying your own weight, 'cause he's already making his newborn son bring home the bacon.
The mega-producer and his wife, Nicole Tuck, filed to trademark their newborn son Aalam Tuck Khaled's name through a Florida-based company called ATK Entertainment so they can slap it on just about everything ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.
In docs, Nicole signed over consent for the company to trademark the name on January 22 ... just TWO DAYS after Aalam was born at 8 pounds, 4 ounces. Healthy and ready to work!
If the application gets approved, the kiddo's name can be used on fragrances, cosmetics, skin creams, baby products, DVDs, CDs, jewelry, watches, children's books, tote bags, clothing and sporting goods.
This is all part of family planning ... for Khaled and Nicole, anyway. As we first reported back in April 2018, the couple did the same for their first son, Asahd, when hew was just 18 months old.
Startin' em young -- standard ops for junior hip-hop moguls.
Kobe Bryant spent his Saturday night playing with his 3-year-old daughter, Bianka ... just hours before his tragic death, TMZ Sports has learned.
We obtained footage of the 41-year-old spending some quality time with Bianka at the Fashion Island mall in Newport Beach the night before the tragedy ... playing at the center's koi pond and walking through the stores.
We're told they looked adorable together -- just enjoying each other's company. The Bryants were regulars at the mall and other local spots. In other words, it wasn't unusual to see Kobe around town with his kids.
The footage is devastating to watch ... knowing it's the last outing Bianka had with her dad.
Southwest-native T.J. Kuhn was only a toddler when he landed the biggest movie role of his life as the kidnapped baby, Nathan Jr. -- who gets taken on a crazy cat and mouse mission to evade the police and bounty hunters -- in the Coen brother's hilarious 1987 movie masterpiece, "Raising Arizona."
T.J. Kuhn was in the funny film alongside a stellar cast of stars including Trey Wilson as the furniture slinging, Nathan Arizona Sr., Holly Hunter as the baby crazy police officer, Ed ... and of course Nicolas Cage as the bumbling baby snatcher H.I.
T.J. Kuhn is now a real estate agent in serving the Phoenix, Arizona area.
One of the most popular faces on the Internet -- you know him as the "Success Kid" meme -- is shaking his famous little fist at Rep. Steve King for screwing up his brand.
Sam Griner is the little guy who became known as "Success Kid" nearly 10 years ago when people started attaching his determined little face to memes. Sam's mother, Laney Griner, has fired off a cease and desist letter to Congressman King.
In the letter, Lainey accuses King of implying his re-election campaign is associated with "Success Kid." She says King is using the Kid's photo with the caption, "FUND OUR MEMES," in large red letters on a crowdsourcing site.
The Kid's mom says she owns the copyright on Sam's image and has licensed it over the years to huge companies like Coca-Cola, General Mills, Microsoft and Marriott. She has not, and it sounds like never will, struck any such deal with Rep. King.
Mama Success says of King, "You have a record of vitriolic criticism of individuals who belong to protected classes or disadvantaged groups, or who support legal rights that you condemn."
The letter goes on, but you get the point -- she's not a fan of King or his politics.
She's giving the Iowa Rep. until Wednesday morning to take down his Success Kid imagery, post a retraction and apology, and hand over an accounting of how much his campaign's made off Success Kid. If he doesn't meet the deadline, she strongly suggests a lawsuit is in the offing.
Griner also wants proof King will refund all donations to the public, and put a little something -- or as she puts it, "reasonable compensation" -- in Success Kid's tight little fist.
Former WCW wrestler Van Hammer was arrested and charged with DUI ... after he allegedly hit a 5-year-old boy with his car in Florida Sunday afternoon.
Boynton Beach police say Hammer -- real name Mark Hildreth -- was driving 58 MPH in a 35-zone and drunk when he hit the young boy, who was riding a bike with training wheels.
According to the report, the boy flew on to the top of Hildreth's car hood and suffered possible internal injuries.
The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, where he remains in stable condition, the Palm Beach Post reports.
A handcuffed Hildreth appeared before a judge on Monday morning ... and he was officially charged with first-degree felony hit and run and DUI.
During his court appearance, officials point out 2 previous DUI arrests on Hildreth's record.
Hildreth's bail was set at $125k with an option for house arrest ... and was ordered to stay away from drugs, alcohol and weapons.
Van Hammer had stints in the WCW in the '90s and early '00s ... before officially retiring from the ring in 2009.
TMZ Sports obtained the paperwork Kobe filed for "Mambacita" on Dec. 30, 2019. Of course, the name is both a tip of the hat to GiGi's father -- the Black Mamba -- and also to her own growing prowess on the hardcourt.
According to the docs ... the plan was to put "Mambacita" on all sorts of sportswear -- shirts, shorts, hats, jerseys, sweatpants, sweatshirts and hoodies.
Kobe had started referring to his 13-year-old daughter by that handle on social media. In fact, one such post, back in November, is eerily poignant today. Kobe praised GiGi's offense, and also the defense of Alyssa Altobelli.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Alyssa, her mother and father -- Keri and John Altobelli -- all perished on the chopper Sunday. Alyssa, like GiGi, was a star player at Kobe's Mamba Academy.
Kobe ended the post by shouting out the "familiar fade" shot by his beloved daughter ... "#Mambacita."
Sources close to Kylie and Travis tell TMZ ... they are getting back to their co-parenting ways to throw a joint party for Stormi's 2nd, renting out a studio space for friends and family and running up the tab to a cool six figures.
Stormi's already gotten a special trip to Disney World to kick off the birthday festivities -- Feb. 1 marks her second trip around the sun -- but the Mouse House is only the tip of the bday iceberg.
You'll recall ... Stormi's first birthday bash was nothing short of spectacular. Kylie rented out the entire backlot of Universal Studios for a "Stormiworld" theme, complete with carnival rides, a butterfly rainbow forest and tons of food and games.
Diddy is helping shine a light on a group of children battling cancer ... and now the kids are getting brand new iPads.
Here's the deal ... former celebrity weed dealer Milk Tyson launched a viral campaign to get Diddy to join their crusade to help kids fighting cancer, and get them a segment on the 'Ellen Degeneres Show.'
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Diddy caught wind of the initiative, and blasted the video out Thursday to his nearly 16 million Instagram followers, and now the group says tons of folks want to get involved.
The exes were spotted together Wednesday with their daughter, Stormi, at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando ... taking a ride on Peter Pan's Flight. It's the first time we've seen all 3 together, in one public photo, in several months.
They went to a pumpkin patch together in October but didn't snap any full family pics -- and before that ... ya gotta go all the way back to Travis' Netflix premiere in August.
Our sources say Trav joined Kylie and Stormi, along with the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, as sort of an early bday treat for their daughter. She turns 2 next weekend.
The Philadelphia Flyers say they found NO evidence to prove team mascot Gritty assaulted a 13-year-old boy in Nov. ... but now cops are investigating.
The Philadelphia Police Dept. has confirmed they're looking into a claim that the person inside the official Gritty costume punched a kid in the back at Wells Fargo Arena (where the Flyers play) during a Nov. 19, 2019 photo shoot fan event.
Chris Greenwell -- the father of the alleged victim -- told the Philadelphia Inquirer his son had "playfully patted" Gritty on the head after taking a picture ... but Gritty responded with real violence.
Greenwell claims Gritty "took a running start" and “punched my son as hard as he could" ... injuring the child.
The boy went to a chiropractor for treatment where he was diagnosed with a back bruise, according to Greenwell.
Greenwell says he attempted to remedy the situation through communication with officials from Flyers ownership ... but after talks soured between the two sides, he went to cops.
A Flyers spokesperson has issued a statement saying, "We took Mr. Greenwell’s allegations seriously and conducted a thorough investigation that found nothing to support this claim."
When reached by TMZ Sports on Wednesday ... Greenwell told us he's NOT considering a lawsuit against Gritty, adding, "I'm letting the police handle it."
As for the identity of the person inside the Gritty costume -- we asked cops for his name so we could reach out to him or her directly ... but so far, we haven't gotten an answer.
Kylie and Kourtney hit up the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida Wednesday for a little weekday fun. Kylie brought Stormi, Kourtney brought Penelope and even North West got in on the action!
A grown-ass man was arrested Saturday after he attacked his son's high school wrestling opponent during a match ... and footage of the incident is INSANE.
The violence all went down during an event between Southeast Guilford H.S. and Hickory Ridge H.S. in Kannapolis, N.C. ... when a dad was so upset with the way his son's match was going, he bum-rushed the mat.
You can see in video of the incident ... the man charges his son's 17-year-old opponent, hitting him square in the back and knocking him to the floor. It looked like a Goldberg spear straight out of WWE.
NEXT ON 9: A high school wrestling match, turned all out brawl!— DaShawn Brown (@DaShawnWSOC9) January 19, 2020 @DaShawnWSOC9
Why? Police said a parent attacked a teenage wrestler, during a match against his son.
“I looked up and this guy starts running from the bleachers down to the mat,” one witness said.
The story, next at 6! pic.twitter.com/kqH8Bv2Y60
A WILD brawl ensued ... with parents rushing to grab the guy -- and, eventually, the man was taken down by police and arrested for simple assault and disorderly conduct.
Cops identified the suspect as 54-year-old Barry lee Jones and processed him at the Carraburrus County Jail. He was later released on $1,000 bond.
Farrah Abraham is not letting Internet trolls control her parenting -- she's blowing off the haters who say she crossed a line with a new sexy video ... shot in front of her daughter.
We got the former 'Teen Mom' and "Backdoor Teen Mom" star leaving Cecconi's in WeHo Monday, and she teed off about the backlash over her yacht excursion. In case you missed it ... Farrah slipped into tiny red lingerie and pranced aboard the vessel while a guy played violin.
Online sleuths noticed Farrah's 10-year-old daughter, Sophia, was on the same boat recording Tik Toks ... while Mom was nearby shaking her barely-covered booty.
The Game helped some kids out of a jam with police that left everyone happy ... but he had to shell out some cash to make it happen.
The rapper was leaving Beauty & Essex restaurant Sunday night when he noticed officers were speaking to a group of kids nearby who were selling candy on the sidewalk.
We're told another business in the area called the cops and reported the kids for trying to make a buck -- AKA soliciting -- and rather than see them get in any sort of trouble, Game took matters in his own hands.
He handed out enough cash to cover the amount of candy they were selling, and even better -- he let them keep the treats, as well.
The Game told us he was "giving jewels to the youth" so they didn't get hit by the "boys in blue," and he likely would have elaborated more, but fellow rapper Freddie Gibbs crashed our clip.
Sounds like Freddie's not a fan of the kids getting hassled either.
Well, here's the weirdest "bucking" thing you'll see all day ... a teacher cracking a joke about killing a puppy in order to motivate his students to win a vocabulary competition.
A California high school teacher named Ryan Price at Buckingham Charter Magnet was trying to get his class fired up for the "Vocab Bowl" -- in which it was leading over some rival schools -- by bringing in a brand new mascot ... an adorable puppy named Buck.
Pretty awesome method of encouragement! Except ... Mr. Price then goes on a rant about doing your "bucking vocab" and issues a threat to the kids -- if they lose the Vocab Bowl, he'll "kill the dog."
Jillian Michaels and her ex have come to an agreement to end their domestic partnership ... which includes joint custody of their 2 children.
The fitness guru and Heidi Michaels-Rhoades settled custody and other important matters to officially become single as of January 16 ... according to new legal docs.
The now-exes agreed their kids -- 9-year-old Lukensia and 6-year-old Phoenix -- will live with Heidi 60 percent of the time and Jillian the other 40 percent. Both also agree not to speak poorly of each other in front of the kids.
As for financial issues ... "The Biggest Loser" star is forking over $2.4 million to Heidi as an advance in child support and will pay an additional $2k a month. Jillian's also agreed to pay for the kids' schooling, clothing and extracurricular activities.
According to the docs, they're splitting their properties -- Jillian gets the $5.8 mil Malibu beach house and Heidi gets the $2 mil pad in Topanga, CA. Both waived their rights to spousal support.
As we reported ... Heidi filed docs to end their domestic partnership about a year ago ... on the heels of Jillian announcing they'd broken up after 9 years.
