UFC Fighter Sues Vitamin Company You Snuck Steroids Into Workout Supplement

10/19/2017 9:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Lyman Good claims his multi-vitamin was tainted with an illegal steroid, causing him to fail a drug test -- and now he's suing the vitamin companies allegedly responsible for his dirty test. 

TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit filed in New York ... in which Good claims he went to a Vitamin Shoppe store before his fight at UFC 205 and purchased Anavite, a multi-vitamin. 

Good claims he failed his USADA drug test -- which came up positive for 1-andro ... an illegal anabolic steroid. 

Good says he turned over all of his supplements to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for further testing and it showed Anavite secretly contained 1-andro ... despite the fact it was not advertised or properly mentioned on the label. 

In his suit, Good claims the manufacturer -- Gaspari Nutrition -- intentionally added the steroids in order to "increase sales in the competitive dietary supplements industry."

Good is suing Gaspari and Vitamin Shoppe (among others), claiming the store didn't honor its promise to "enforce strict quality assurance." He's seeking unspecified damages. 

FYI, Good was ultimately hit with a 6-month ban for his positive drug test -- and he claims the whole ordeal has damaged his career. 

We reached out to Gaspari and Vitamin Shoppe -- but neither had a comment.

Exclusive Details

LFO singer Devin Lima is going into surgery after doctors found a massive tumor -- and the health scare comes 7 years after his fellow bandmate died of leukemia. 

Sources close to the group tell TMZ, doctors went in Thursday morning to remove the benign tumor, which is sitting on his adrenal gland. We're told it was discovered a few weeks ago.

The '90s band was ramping up for a national tour, but that's on hold since Devin will need recovery time. We're told he is expected to be fine though.

LFO member Rich Cronin died tragically from leukemia in September 2010. He was only 36.

Devin seems to be keeping a positive outlook. He and Brad Fischetti promised fans they'll be back on the road ASAP.

EXCLUSIVE

O'Shea Jackson Jr. says there's one way Gordon Hayward could've avoided that gruesome bone-snapping leg injury this week -- "Should've been a Laker."

"I feel bad for Gordon Hayward," the "Straight Outta Compton" star told us on the way out of Delilah in West Hollywood ... "but that's that Celtic luck!"

Ouch.  

Don't worry, there's more -- Cube's son also pledges allegiance to the Ball family, hollers at some chicks and says the best player in the NBA is still Kobe Bryant. It's pretty funny. 

And don't miss the parting shot at Danny Ainge.

Joe Theismann says watching Gordon Hayward's leg snap during NBA's opening night took him right back to 1985 ... an eerie reminder of that fateful encounter with Lawrence Taylor.

Of course, LT snapped Theismann's leg live on "Monday Night Football" -- essentially ending Joe's career. It remains one of the most gruesome injuries of all time. 

Theismann tells TMZ Sports he really does understand Hayward's pain -- and feels terrible every time he watches a similar injury on TV.

Elvis Presley's Co. Sued Screw Heartbreak ... You Run a Lung Disease Hotel!!!

10/16/2017 6:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Elvis Presley Enterprises runs a disease-infested hotel where the water is full of bacteria infiltrating guests' lungs ... according to a new lawsuit.

The company that runs all things Elvis has just been sued by Jennifer Walker, who says she stayed at the Guest House at Graceland this summer -- and contracted Legionnaires' disease during the vacay.

Walker says she spent a lot of time at the hotel pool and hot tub and started suffering symptoms of the chronic lung affliction -- such as coughing, difficulty breathing and loss of appetite -- and was diagnosed with Legionnaires' later that same month.

According to the suit, a county health department investigation of the hotel -- which is right next to Graceland -- found the sprinkler system tested positive for Legionnella bacteria.

There have been other deaths allegedly tied to an outbreak at the hotel, and EPE is already facing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Walker is suing for negligence and wants an unspecified amount in damages. To be clear, she is not suing Elvis' estate or the actual Graceland property.

Mark Salling Cut His Wrists Before Plea Bargain

10/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Salling hurt himself in a suicide attempt a month and a half before striking a plea deal in his child porn case ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the "Glee" star was in the bedroom of his L.A. area home on August 22 when he cut both of his wrists. We're told Mark "freaked out" and screamed for his roommate, who discovered him bleeding and called 911.

Paramedics rushed to the home where they treated Mark, put him in an ambulance and took him to the hospital.

We're told Mark was taken for psychiatric evaluation, and days later, was taken to a rehab facility for psychological issues.

Mark's arms are scarred, which is apparently why he's been wearing long sleeves in the Los Angeles heat.

As we reported, Salling copped a plea in his child porn case earlier this month ... a case that was filed after cops found more than 50,000 images of child porn and child erotica on his personal computer.

The prosecution recommended 4 to 7 years in prison under the plea deal. The judge has yet to impose a sentence.

Mark's lawyer denies the story but will not say which details are incorrect, adding, "Mark is physically fine and Mark is spending his time atoning and working on himself."

Gerard Butler was hospitalized after he says he got run off the road and took a bad spill on his bike.

Sources close to Butler tell TMZ ... he was riding his motorcycle in L.A. when he got cut off by a car, causing him to crash. Someone called 911, paramedics came and took Gerard to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Lucky for him ... no broken bones ... just cuts and bruises.

Lucky for Gerard he's not laid up. His climate change disaster flick, "Geostorm," comes out next week, and he's able to promote it like usual, despite being a little banged up.

Exclusive Details

Artie Lange never made it to his show in Ohio this weekend -- but ya can't blame the guy ... he stayed grounded on doctor's orders. 

Sources close to Artie tell TMZ ... he wasn't feeling well Saturday ahead of his comedy show in Akron, Ohio because of high sugar levels. We're told he suffers from this due to his diabetes.

Rather than risk further injury by taking a flight from his home in New Jersey to Ohio, we're told Artie followed his doctor's instructions to hit a hospital and skip the show. Sources say Artie had a bad reaction the last time he flew with high blood sugar, so it was a no-brainer.

Artie checked into a local ER in NJ and we're told he's feeling better now.

Tom Keifer had to cancel a concert this weekend 'cause he was rushed to a hospital -- but the good news is he's making it up to fans ... TMZ has learned.

The Cinderella frontman's rep tells TMZ ... Tom collapsed prior to his show Saturday in Warrendale, PA and was rushed to a hospital. Tests found he was experiencing severe dehydration and heat exhaustion ... which put him out of commission and kept him there overnight.

We're told docs found Tom to be in stable condition and he's been given fluids through the night. He's expected to be released from the hospital Sunday -- and even better ... he plans to revisit his show in Warrendale later this week.

Looks like he'll be back on solid ground soon enough. 

Harvey Weinstein Dinner Before Rehab in AZ

10/12/2017 8:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein had what looked like just another night out with friends Thursday, which could not be further from the truth ... because he was with his team of doctors.

Weinstein had dinner at Uncle Sal's restaurant in Scottsdale, AZ ... what we're told will be his last supper before checking into a nearby rehab facility. The restaurant is in a strip mall 15 minutes from the Phoenician Resort, where he checked in Wednesday night after flying from L.A.

The fallen mogul broke bread with 3 guys and a woman -- who we're told are part of his medical team -- and eyewitnesses say you would never know Weinstein was in the eye of a ferocious storm. One witness said, "He was acting normal, fine, like he didn't have a care."

He clearly has a care. As we reported, his daughter called 911 Wednesday, saying her dad was suicidal and upset, although when cops arrived she took it back and said they were just having an argument.

As Weinstein goes for help in the land of McCain, his lawyers are hammering The Weinstein Company. TMZ broke the story ... TWC may have violated his contract by firing him. The contract shockingly allowed Weinstein to stay on with the company -- regardless of how many sexual harassment claims were lodged -- as long as he paid the settlement costs and a penalty to the company.

Dana White I Don't Hate Mark Hunt Just Protecting Him from Himself

10/12/2017 1:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says he pulled Mark Hunt from next month's "UFC Sydney" card because "sometimes you gotta protect these guys from themselves."

White didn't specifically say the move was due to the article Hunt penned for the Player's Voice -- where he said he's been experiencing memory loss and slurred speech -- but it seems obvious that the article was the trigger point. 

Hunt has been VERY upset about the move and trashed Dana on social media -- calling him a "piece of sh*t motherf*cker" and a "bald headed pr*ck."

White tells TMZ Sports the move isn't personal -- he actually really likes Hunt -- but, "Sometimes, you gotta protect these guys from themselves and that's what we're looking into right now."
