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

6/17/2019 6:42 PM PDT

Djimon Hounsou had himself a rough Father's Day because it sounds like he didn't even get a chance to see to 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 has 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.

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 ...

WWE's Mark Henry Spent Father's Day ... Giving Haircuts to the Homeless

6/17/2019 3:11 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry did a pretty cool thing on Sunday -- organizing an event in his hometown of Austin, Texas to give haircuts and shaves to people in need. 

Henry says he didn't just want to hand out cash and call it a day -- his focus was put boots on the ground and do something for the people that would really make a difference in their lives.  

So, after talking with local organizations, he decided to spearhead a shave and haircut event -- because a lot of homeless people had been telling him the way they look can be a tough hurdle to overcome when trying to find a job. 

Mark connected with the people from the Austin Area Urban League and the Maestro's Classic beard care company to set up the event ... where they offered free shaves, haircuts, food and water to anyone who needed the help. 

Henry says he learned A LOT while talking with the people who came through his event -- especially when it comes to the way homeless people are treated by the rest of society. 

"People don't acknowledge them. They treat them like they're invisible. 9 times out of 10 people just look at them and don't talk to them. That's gotta be a horrible existence."

Mark says he was so moved by the experience, he's already planning more events in cities across the country. 

"I got a lot of joy out of seeing people smile and feel good about how they looked, it meant a lot to them," Henry says. 

The former Olympic powerlifter says he wants people to know it takes money to put on these events -- and if you want to help, contact your local Urban League or housing authority for information on how you can contribute. 

Bill Cosby Father's Day Tweet Was All Me ... Dictated From Prison Phone

6/17/2019 12:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Cosby's Father's Day tweet left most thinking it was a PR stunt from his team, but we've learned it came from the Cos himself ... who spoke it into existence from behind bars.

Cosby's rep, Andrew Wyatt, tells TMZ ... Bill called from prison Sunday night, wanting to get a Father's Day message out to the public from his official social media accounts. Wyatt says Bill dictated through the phone exactly what he wished to say.

Wyatt says Bill does this often -- he's on with his team via phone calls or face-to-face about 3 to 4 times a month.

This time, Cosby's message -- which was published to both Twitter and Instagram -- read, "Hey, Hey, Hey...It's America's Dad...I know it's late, but to all the Dads... It's an honor to be called a Father, so let's make today a renewed oath to fulfilling our purpose -- strengthening our families and communities." 

An old video of Cosby during a CBS Black History Month special was attached to the posts. In the clip, he discusses how mass incarceration has affected black men and broken up tons of families in the process. He says, "America invented the cruelest slavery in the history of the world because it broke up black families. After slavery was over, America kept breaking up the black man’s family and that’s some awful history to teach."

As you might imagine, Coby's posts caught some backlash. Apparently, people don't wanna hear from a convicted predator -- that kinda seems to be the consensus all around. Remember, he was found guilty in 2018 of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand.

What also pissed people off was Cosby playing up his old unofficial title as America's TV dad, but Wyatt tells us everyone's got it twisted ... 'cause BC was just going off of what he's hearing from the yard. Wyatt says Cosby has relayed that lots of other inmates refer to him as "their dad" and that he was simply running with that for the tweet/IG.

Wyatt also says he just doesn't understand the criticism over Cosby's words -- as his message was nothing but positive for the holiday. Uhhh, we can take guess. Just sayin' ...

Caitlyn Jenner Shout-Out to the Kardashian Dads ... But Not Tristan, Of Course

6/16/2019 4:13 PM PDT

Caitlyn Jenner would like all the dads in her life -- and, by extension, the Kardashians' lives -- to know she appreciates each and every one of them ... except one Tristan Thompson.

Kylie and Kendall's father posted a Father's Day tribute Sunday, honoring not only her own dad -- who was a WWII vet -- but also her two sons, Burt and Brandon (who are both dads) ... as well as Kanye West, Rob Kardashian, Scott Disick and Travis Scott

You'll notice that Tristan is absent from the group shout-out. He, of course, shares a kid with Khloe Kardashian ... but got kicked to the curb after cheating on her (again).

Clearly, Caitlyn's not a fan of the guy ... none of the Kardashians seem to be at this point, frankly. Also interesting -- Khloe posted some cryptic messages ahead of the big holiday that one could interpret as being aimed at her baby daddy.

On her Insta story, Khloe posted stuff like ... "stop having relationship problems with someone you're not in a relationship with" as well as, "reminder: you cannot change a person who doesn't see an issue in their actions." 

The good news ... Khloe seems to have a decent co-parenting relationship with Tristan for the sake of their daughter, True. She told Laura Wasser recently that she keeps it cool with him and tries to keep any bad energy away from the kid. 

Heck, she's even reunited with him since their split just to maintain the father-daughter relationship. When it comes to Father's Day though ... no love, apparently. 

Father's Day 2019 Hollywood <3's Dad

6/16/2019 3:02 PM PDT

It's Father's Day -- and as the rest of us give a big hug to our papa bears ... these famous folks are pretty much doing the exact same thing.

Lots of stars took to social media Sunday to celebrate the holiday -- whether that meant honoring their own dads with a selfie, or snuggling up with their kids. Take, for example, Tom Brady -- who's got three children of his own -- cozying up with the tykes in his bed.

You also got Chance the Rapper, who shared an adorable photo of his daughter coming up to him for what seems like a goodbye kiss while he sat in the driver seat of his car.

Tons of other celebs honored Father's Day as well -- Rob Lowe got a photo with his pops, as did Bret Michaels, Ryan Seacrest, David Beckham and Paul Stanley.

Other A-listers posed with their kids, such as Magic Johnson, Omar Gooding, James Van Der Beek, Slim Thug and more. 

Click through to see the rest of these proud papas ... trust us, it'll make ya forget all about your own daddy issues. 

Drake Love Ya, Champagne 'Papa' ... Gift from Son Adonis?!?

6/16/2019 12:28 PM PDT

Drake seems to be giving folks a rare sneak peek into his life as a dad ... sharing what sure looks like a Father's Day gift from his baby boy.

Drizzy posted a photo Sunday of some artwork with spattered paint over stenciled-in "PAPA" lettering. He captioned his photo, "Happy Father's Day." The gift is almost certainly from his 1-year-old son, Adonis, whom he shares with French model Sophie Brussaux.

This wouldn't be the first time that Drake's shared some of Adonis' art on social media. During the holidays, he posted a photo of a handprint painting his son created. At the time, he said Adonis was greater than Picasso ...and seemed like a proud pops for it.

Adonis > Picasso don’t @ me 💙🎄

A post shared by champagnepapi (@champagnepapi) on

As we've reported ... Drake's been bragging about his boy to friends and family since Sophie gave birth. He's had a solid co-parenting relationship with her too, sometimes sending private jets so she and Adonis can fly out to see him ... whenever possible. 

Drake doesn't live with Sophie or Adnois -- we're told his work schedule doesn't allow for it. He does Facetime the kid daily though ... so they've definitely got a relationship. 

Our Drake sources have also told us that Sophie's been exposing Adonis to multiple languages and the arts as well -- the proof is clearly in the paint on the latter. 

Lauren London Honors Nipsey on Father's Day ... One Reason I Loved You

6/16/2019 10:41 AM PDT

Lauren London is remembering Nipsey Hussle on a holiday marked for dads ... and she's doing it with a touching tribute honoring his fatherhood.

On Sunday, Lauren posted a sweet photo of her, Nipsey and their son, whom Lauren is cradling. She captioned her pic, "One of the reasons I fell in Love with You.... Your Fatherhood." Lauren added, "Today we celebrate You Love you Ermias."

One of the reasons I fell in Love with You.... Your Fatherhood Today we celebrate You Love you Ermias 💙

A post shared by Lauren London (@laurenlondon) on

Nipsey and Lauren had one child together -- 2-year-old Kross. He also had another child -- his 10-year-old daughter, Emani -- from a previous relationship. 

Clearly, Lauren is still mourning the loss of her partner -- who died in March after being shot. She added another message on her Instagram story that hit the point home ... "Sent a lot of prayers to Heaven last night," with prayer hand emojis attached. 

As we've reported ... Nipsey's daughter is currently in the custody of his sister, Samantha, after she filed for guardianship over her -- Sam feels Nipsey's first baby mama is unfit to care for the child. They're in the middle of a custody battle right now over the issue.

Kross, meanwhile, is staying with his mom. No problems there.

6/16/2019 7:22 AM PDT

Get a load of baby Archie, everyone, the freshly-minted son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex © SussexRoyal

A post shared by The Duke and Duchessx of Sussex (@s sussexroyal) on

The pic was posted on the Royals' Instagram page for Harry's very first Father's Day.

Still not crystal clear how Meghan and Harry came up with the name Archie ... to be precise, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie is kinda like the United State's Attorney General ... he's 7th in line for the top spot. Archie wasn't in public view during the Queen's birthday celebration earlier this month, so this is really the first time we've seen his full face.  

Nevertheless, he's a big deal in the UK. BTW, the first official interracial baby in the Royal Fam.

Happy Father's Day Harry ... your kid is super cute.  

Robin Thicke's Father's Day Can't Help Myself ... It's Family Photo Time, Baby(s)!!!

6/15/2019 11:45 AM PDT

Robin Thicke's been in the baby-making mood these past couple years -- and now, he's in the baby-taking mood ... as in taking cute pics with his kids for Father's Day weekend. 

The singer was out in Malibu Friday with his baby mama, April Love Geary, their two babies and his 9-year-old son, Julian ... whom he shares with ex Paula Patton. The family of 5 hit up the beach together, where they got an impromptu photo-op in with the kiddos in the sand ... each parent taking turns on camera and lap duty. 

A perfect way to ring in the holiday weekend, if you ask us ... especially considering how adorable their latest additions are. And, just check out how happy Robin looks as a new dad (yet again). The guy's absolutely beaming ... at age 42, no less. 

Robin and April welcomed their second child, Lola Alain, just a few months ago -- this, of course, less than a year after she gave birth to their first kid, Mia Love ... who's already over a year old and rockin' little blonde curls. AWWW!!!

It seems like just yesterday we were witnessing April breastfeed Mia on the Gram -- now we're another baby in ... with plenty of time left for a third if they wanna keep the streak going. April's only 24, after all -- and looks as great as any mom could 2 kids deep.

Mother's Day 2019 Celebs Give It Up for Their Mamas

5/12/2019 4:07 PM PDT

We wouldn't have Hollywood if it weren't for all the mothers who gave birth to such stars -- and their kids sure seemed to recognize that too on Mother's Day.

Tons of celebs posted touching tributes to their moms Sunday, throwing up some sweet throwback pics in the process. Some standouts -- Shaq and his mom, Lucille; Kris Jenner and her ma, Mary Jo; Jamie Lynn Spears and her mother, Lynne; and Tom Brady and Galynn. 

A lot of other folks got in on the love too -- including Paris Hilton, Quavo, Ronda Rousey, Chris Hemsworth, Mariah Carey, D-Wade, Neymar and even Nas

Even more of them shouted out the mothers of their own children -- such as Barack Obama praising Michelle, Kevin Hart doing the same for Eniko, Will Smith bowing down for Jada Pinkett ... and Chance the Rapper thanking Kirsten for being a mom for him at times.

Ben Affleck killed two birds with one stone by paying tribute to both Jennifer Garner and his mother, Christine. Looks like everyone was on that train today too. 

Moms ... ya gotta love 'em.

Kanye's Sunday Service Hey Mama ... Happy Mother's Day, Always & Forever

5/12/2019 11:04 AM PDT

Kanye West is remembering his late mom, Donda West, with a very special Sunday Service ... and the tribute was truly touching on Mother's Day, from start to end.

Ye was live streaming his weekly spiritual event Sunday, which was being filmed in the same fisheye lens he used during his big set at Coachella a few weeks back. It began with the rapper making his way to the stage with Tupac's "Dear Mama" track as walk-up music.

Fitting ... seeing how he followed with his own shout-out to his mom in "Hey Mama." Kanye rapped the song all the way through, keeping his eyes closed through most of it.

Donda was a crucial part of Kanye's life until she passed away in 2007 due to complications from a surgery she'd undergone at the time. It left Kanye an emotional wreck for years to come -- and her death even served as a catalyst for his mental breakdown in 2016.

Of course, Kanye and Kim have had multiple children of their own in the years since ... and just welcomed their fourth kid -- a boy -- last week via surrogate.

Still, it's good to know he'll never forget the original. #HappyMothersDay

Ben Affleck Shout-Out to My Ex-Wife, Jennifer ... & My Own Ma, Of Course

5/12/2019 11:02 AM PDT

Ben Affleck is killing two Mother's Day birds with one stone by, naturally, thanking his own mom, but also praising his ex-wife and the mother of his children ... one Jennifer Garner.

The actor posted a loving tribute to both ladies Sunday, saying ... "Happy Mother’s Day to the two incredible mothers who have shown me the meaning of love." 

He continued by vowing to make two donations in their honor -- one to Cut50's Dignity for Incarcerated Women Campaign, which aims to reduce prison populations, and to National Bailout ... an org that works to bail out black mothers and caregivers who are locked up and detained in pre-trial detention because they can't afford to pay their way out of jail.

It sounds like both Jen and his mom, Christine Anne Boldt, are backers of those causes, so it's gotta mean a lot that Ben's gonna put some dollars toward them.

As to why Ben is shouting out his ex on Mother's Day ... it's no secret that she's been there for him through thick and thin, even in the wake of their drawn-out divorce.

Jennifer was the one who drove Ben to rehab last year as he was battling alcohol addiction, and they've continued to co-parent marvelously despite not being together romantically. 

Class acts all the way around in this fam.
