Prince Criminal Investigation Full Bore ... Doctors On The Hot Seat

7/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0630_prince_gettyThe Prince criminal death investigation is in high gear, and authorities are scrutinizing two doctors ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. 

Our sources say authorities are taking a hard look at Prince's primary physician Dr. Michael Schulenberg and renowned addiction specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld, to determine if either of them crossed the legal line by writing prescriptions to Prince or otherwise facilitating the singer's acquisition of meds.

We're told three agencies are deep into the investigation -- the FBI, the DEA and the Carver County District Attorney's Office.

Prince died after OD'ing on Fentanyl, an extremely powerful narcotic. TMZ broke various stories that the singer was addicted to Percocet and almost died from the drug 6 days before his ultimate passing.

We also broke the story ... hours before Prince's death, he was photographed at a Walgreens near his home in Paisley Park pacing and looking anxious as someone went inside to get a prescription.

Dr. Schulenberg was at Prince's home when his body was discovered, but says he was only there to inform Prince of some test results. Dr. Kornfeld's son was also at the house with a backpack loaded with synthetic opiates to treat addiction. Kornfeld's lawyer says none of the opiates went into Prince's system.

As for the two doctors, Kornfeld is still actively practicing in Marin County, CA but Dr. Schulenberg has been MIA from his med clinic since Prince died in April.

Our sources say if state charges are filed, the case will not go to the grand jury ... the DA will make the decision. We're told it's unclear how long the investigation will take, but it could be several months.

063016-dina-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan will have to celebrate her 30th birthday without Dina Lohan ... who's holed up in a hospital and doctors have no idea what's wrong with her.

Sources close to Dina tell us she was taken to the hospital last Friday after complaining about severe stomach pains. We know what you're thinking -- it wasn't gas.

Doctors couldn't diagnose that initial pain, and we're told now Dina's aches have moved to her back and neck ... and it's getting worse. She's had several MRIs and CAT scans, but doctors are still baffled and Dina's spent the last 6 nights in the hospital.

The family sent us a pic, and while she seems to be in decent spirits ... we're told Dina's upset about missing LiLo's bday party in Greece.

Docs are managing her pain with meds.

Disney star Debby Ryan Pleads No Contest in DUI Case

6/30/2016 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0630_debby-ryan_TMZDisney Channel superstar Debby Ryan is walking away from her DUI arrest without a day of jail time, but she'll be on probation for 3 years ... TMZ has learned. 

Debby pled no contest to reckless driving. In addition to the probation, she also must complete 3 months in a DUI program and perform community service.

We broke the story ... the star of  "Jessie" was arrested in April for drunk driving after slamming her Audi into a Mercedes. During Thursday's hearing in L.A. Debby got 2 misdemeanor DUI counts dismissed in exchange for her plea.

It's a good deal for Debby, but not uncommon for first time DUI offenders.

She has to make another court appearance in September to determine how much she owes for the damaged Mercedes. 

Ghostbusters We're the Ones You Call for a Lyft!

6/30/2016 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Ghostbusters" fans can roll up to the club in full Peter Venkman swag ... for a couple days anyway.

Ecto-1 replicas will be on call to Lyft riders July 1st and 2nd, but you gotta request GhostMode. 

It's similar to what Lyft did with DeLoreans for 'Back to the Future' day, but better since the Ghostbusters deal will be in multiple cities -- L.A., NYC, San Fran, Boston and Washington D.C.

We got one of the Ectos rolling through Bev Hills Wednesday night, and even Jeff Beacher was impressed, along with Paris Hilton -- who is busy launching her new fragrance 'Gold Rush.' They both took time out to admire the ride.

Lyft's expecting this is to be very popular, so it's also wrapping Toyota Highlanders to look like the car. Small consolation, but it'll lower your wait time.
