The doctor who was performing a procedure on Joan Rivers when she stopped breathing allowed cameras into her office for a Celine Dion documentary ... performing a vocal cord procedure and joking around with the famous singer.
Dr. Gwen Korovin checked out Celine's strained vocal cords for the singer's 2010 documentary, "Through the Eyes of the World."
The procedure is called a laryngoscopy ... in which the mouth/oral cavity is numbed so the patient can respond to the doctor's commands.
Check out the photos of her famous patients lining the walls ... patients that include Lady Gaga, Hugh Jackman, John Mayer and Brooke Shields.
Korovin was not certified to perform medical services on Joan during her endoscopy. She was reportedly performing a biopsy when Joan stopped breathing and CNN is reported the doctor took a selfie while Joan was under.

'Idol' Contestant Michael Johns
Friend Claims Cover-Up
Alcohol Killed Him
9/17/2014 3:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The wife of "American Idol" contestant Michael Johns created a lie to cover-up the real cause of death ... alcohol abuse ... this according to his best friend.
Stacey Vuduris filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming Torrey Gambill has been on a hate campaign, blaming her for Michael's death in August and sending her abusing texts.
But Torrey has fired off legal docs of his own, claiming Stacey concocted a lie after he found Michael dead in his Orange County apartment.
After Michael died, we reported Stacey's story -- that Michael had an ankle injury that led to a fatal blood clot. But law enforcement told us at the time Michael had engaged in heavy alcohol use prior to death.
Torrey quotes from a text Stacey sent him shortly after Michael died, saying, "I'd rather it be said he died at home if that's ok with u .. he would want that."
Stacey continued, "I rather that then 'alcoholic' stuff ... his good friends would never say anything ... so I don't think that will come out. At least blood clot sounds sudden."
Torrey also says Michael and Stacey were separated, and that Michael "insinuated" she had a boyfriend. He says Stacey put Michael through hell his last year.
According to legal docs ... Stacey and Torrey settled their beef without a judge's order.
Sues Ex Behind Sex Tape
For Jacking Her Computer Data
9/17/2014 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea was totally taken advantage of by the ex-boyfriend/producer who says he shot a sex tape with her -- because she says the creep also illegally copied data from her laptop.
Iggy filed a federal lawsuit against Hefe Wine ... accusing him of downloading the entire contents of her personal computer back in 2009 while they were living together in Atlanta. She says the data included unreleased master recordings.
In July, Hefe announced he was putting out a new EP from Iggy that will "shock the world." Iggy's lawsuit accuses him of directly using, or at the very least, converting the stolen data to create this new release.
Iggy also accuses her ex of forgery. TMZ broke the story ... Hefe claims he has a document signed by Iggy giving him exclusive rights to her music and music videos. In the suit, she says that doc is a fake -- pasted together from a legit contract she once signed.
The lawsuit makes no mention of the sex tape Hefe claims to have recorded.

In fact, when we asked Fred (the guy in the hood) how he felt about FSU ... he couldn't have been more clear -- "F**k THEM right in the p***y."
The guys are now calling for the entire student body at Florida State to rally around Winston with a NEW war cry at this weekend's game ... can you guess what it is??

We Were Frisky ... But Fully Clothed
9/17/2014 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts' BF is sticking to their story -- that they were fully clothed and NOT HAVING SEX -- and he thinks TMZ's pics of the scene prove they were only making out.
Brian Lucas tells us he and Watts found the photos of their front seat romp "quite entertaining and fascinating" -- but says there's nothing in the photos that shows them banging. He also says there are no photos of Watts' breasts exposed because it never happened ... as witnesses claim it did.
Bottom line, Lucas says there's no hard proof sex was involved ... "only assumptions."
We broke the story ... Lucas and Watts were questioned by cops who responded to reports of indecent exposure after people saw the couple going at it. Watts claimed cops were racist and roughed her up.
Lucas tells us they met with the LAPD Tuesday to give them an official statement about the incident.

We Got the Pictures
And It Looks Like Sex
9/17/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The "Django Unchained" actress who cried racism against the LAPD ... claiming they harassed and hurt her because she was just making out with her white boyfriend in a car -- has some explaining to do, because we obtained pictures that seem to show A LOT more than sucking face.
The pictures were taken Thursday outside the CBS lot in Studio City. You see Daniele Watts straddling BF Brian -- their hands steadying themselves around the sunroof.
An eyewitness who saw Daniele and Brian as he worked in a nearby office tells TMZ ... Brian was sitting in the passenger seat with his feet on the curb and Daniele was straddling him with her shirt pulled up -- breasts exposed. The eyewitness says she was grinding on top of him, rocking back and forth.
Someone from the office went down and asked Daniele and Brian to stop because everyone in the office could see them but they continued.
The eyewitnesses say Brian then began "horizontally bongoing her boobs back and forth." He says she eventually reached into the center console, grabbed a tissue, wiped him down and then herself and tossed it on the grass.
Someone from the office called the cops and made an indecent exposure complaint. TMZ obtained police audio when the cops came out, and Daniele played the race and fame cards.

Steve Wozniak is finally going back to Apple, exclusively ... when it comes to phones -- and it's all because he thinks the company finally has a product in the iPhone 6 to rival Android.
The Woz was making his way through Dulles International Airport when he copped to tossing out multiple Android phones he had been using instead of the iPhone ... and said the new model (TWO DAYS AWAY!) is a game changer.
Steve started gushing about new iPhone 6 features -- and it sounds like one in particular sold him on the device.
Check out the vid ... Woz can still sell. Better than the average Genius Bar jockey, anyway.

Accused of Photoshopping
Bikini Yacht Photo
9/17/2014 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce's thighs are so amazing, they can bend the laws of physics -- or she just got busted Photoshopping her own photos.
Beyonce posted this bikini photo to her website Tuesday, but you can clearly see one of the stairs behind her isn't level for some odd reason. Yeah, it could be the worst carpentry ever, but it's way more likely someone is terrible at concealing Photoshop on Bey's thigh gap.
It's not the first time Bey has been accused of tweaking photos -- fans accused her of increasing her gap once before ... while another showed her sitting with a visibly distorted wine glass.
Rihanna Still Close to His Heart
9/17/2014 7:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown may be necking with Rihanna again ... with his current girlfriend right by his side.
CB and Karrueche Tran were all over L.A. Tuesday promoting his new album. Chris has been wearing a necklace with an angel on it ... that looks exactly like Rihanna's.
Our photog asked Chris if the necklace was a gift from Rihanna ... but he was mum.
But sources close to Chris tell us the necklace has no connection to Rihanna. We're guessing Chris knew exactly what he was doing -- getting people to talk about him just as his album drops.
