Kate Middleton Prank

Regrets After Nurse's Death

TMZ Live


A radio station's prank call to Kate Middleton's hospital leads to a nurse's suspected suicide -- now the DJ's behind the stunt are getting ripped around the world! Is it really their fault -- and should they be fired for what started out as an innocent joke?

Plus, we broke the story ... Notorious B.I.G.'s autopsy report revealed for the first time, and we found a key detail in the documents -- one the public never knew about before.

Also ... Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton make nice nice in Miami AND Las Vegas! What's the behind their truce? Mike knows ... of course.

(0:00) A Radio DJ bit involving Kate Middleton goes horribly wrong -- when the hospital worker they duped dies in an apparent suicide. Are they really to blame for the woman's death?
(10:00) The never-before-seen autopsy report for Notorious B.I.G has finally been released -- and we were the first people to get ahold of it. We'll tell you exactly how the legendary rapper died.
(14:00) Lindsay Lohan continues her tour with The Wanted ... so is she banging a band member or not?
(18:00) The so-called nude photo of Ariel Winter's sister surfaces ... and it explains why the publicist we talked to yesterday had trouble describing it. Because it's pretty weird.
(21:10) Snoop Dogg is worried about his buddy Katt Williams crazy behavior of late ... and tells us he wants the troubled comedian to get help before it's too late.
(24:00) Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton -- reunited!!! And as a bonus ... we play one of the greatest TMZ videos of all time -- when Paris and Kim totally diss Tara Reid.
(27:00) Rick Ross cancels a concert after being threatened by a massive gang -- we'll show you one of the scary videos that prompted the cancellation.
(31:00) Tyler Perry's ridiculous on-set seating ... a total ego stroke.
(34:15) "50 Shades of Grey" publishers give ALL of their employees an equal $5,000 bonus. Too bad Harvey wasn't here to hear this one.

max is sooo hotttt    

This is ridiculous. As tragic and dumb as any suicide may be, this one is not the result of repeated bullying or any other infliction. It was a prank (a good one at that) and she had the support of the hospital and the radio station and Buckingham Palace. This one should be filed along with the CHICK BANK ROBBER under "UGG PEOPLE ARE DUMB". Thanks Harvey, and tell Maxx is said "Hello Gorgeous"

I think the prank was inappropriate, but then again, I'm also shocked they got through It is more the hospital's fault on that part, because I'm pretty sure no one is going to be calling Kate while she's at the hospital that she doesn't already expect. Why would the Queen of England call her? That just makes no sense on any level, so the hospital definitely should look into increasing privacy and security rules.

Nobody kills themselves over a prank. She obviously had some very serious issues

She was responsible because she vetted/routed the call saying it was from the queen. The nurse in the room jumped to attention and responded to all questions asked in a professional and honest manner. The normal reception and administrative staff were not on duty at 5AM.

Both were nurses on the night shift and decent , caring people who took their jobs very seriously and were very proud of what they do which is help people.

These characteristics that make them great nurses and very valuable human beings also make them entirely unsuitable to deal with vacuous, shallow, morons who have nothing better to do than make international prank calls for fun.

♥TMZ but ...    

the reason kate didn't go to a private hospital is they are trying to be like everyday people as much as possible
I think this nurse must have had health issues of her own and the dj's shouldn't be blamed
anyone would know that was not the Queen on the phone omg what a shame
