Charles Manson In 'Bad Shape' Back in Prison

1/9/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0108-charles-manson-SPLASH-02Charles Manson is back in Corcoran State Prison, and we're told he might not survive his health crisis.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson was taken to a Bakersfield hospital a week ago for significant intestinal bleeding. Doctors wanted to perform surgery, but Manson refused. Late last week he had a change of heart, but doctors determined he was so weak he might die on the operating table.

The surgeons went back and forth, planning the surgery again ... but ultimately cancelled it.

We're told there was nothing more the hospital could do, so Manson was taken back to Corcoran -- largely for security reasons.

As for the 82-year-old prisoner's condition, one source familiar with the situation said, "He's not good. His health is failing."

Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Birthday Blowup Led to Breakup

1/9/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0106-nicki-minaj-meek-mill-TMZ-01Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill broke up after a nuclear fight during her birthday weekend last month ... and it wasn't about cheating.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell us ... they weren't getting along in Turks and Caicos, because he was hanging with friends and not paying attention to her. She went nuts on him, he got pissed and left the island without her, and she said, "Screw this," and ended the relationship. Just that simple.

There are reports Meek had been cheating with a woman named Sonye Rasool and that's what set off Nicki. A source close to Sonye tells us she and Meek hooked up years before Nicki, but she fully denies any cheating. We're told Sonye's about to file defamation lawsuits against several outlets.

We're also told Sonye understands truth is a defense, but she has no fear.

It's interesting ... the breakup appears to be over the small stuff, which makes you wonder if the door is still open.

Chael Sonnen Let's Be Serious ... Ronda Has No Hollywood Future

1/8/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey sucks at acting ... so says Chael Sonnen, who says if Ronda stops fighting, her Hollywood career is over.

Sonnen joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 and explained that he wants the best for Rousey ... but pretending she has a real shot as an actress is a joke.

"This girl can't act, nor should she be able to. She's not a trained actor. She was in those opportunities because she was very famous."

Sonnen says for Ronda, fighting and acting opportunities are tied together -- "It's a house of cards. If one goes, they all go."

Charles Manson Healthy Enough to Go Under the Knife

EXCLUSIVE

0109-charles-manson-gettyCharles Manson is finally strong enough to undergo a surgery that will repair a lesion in his intestines that has caused significant bleeding ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson was rushed almost a week ago from Corcoran State Prison to a hospital in Bakersfield, CA for an operation. We're told Manson refused the surgery, but on Thursday had a change of heart.  

Hours before the scheduled operation, doctors determined they couldn't put the 82-year-old under and operate because he was too weak ... so the surgery was scrubbed.

We're now told Manson's regained his strength and doctors have green lit the procedure, which will now go down later today.

Our sources say Manson will also receive a blood transfusion.
