Wayne Brady Sorry I Missed My Show ... I Had Too Much Soul Food

12/2/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wayne Brady was surprisingly MIA for opening night of his new play, but he's got an excuse we can all relate to -- he ate way too much on Thanksgiving. Seriously.

We asked Wayne why he missed his debut in "Merrily We Roll Along" Wednesday night, and he told us -- despite rumors of a more serious injury -- it was something way more embarrassing.

Brady assured us and all his fans there's no reason to worry, though ... he's already recovered and will be onstage at the Bram Goldsmith Theater in Bev Hills Friday night.

HoneyBaked Ham be damned.

Kanye West Concerts On Hold ... Indefinitely

12/1/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1130_kanye_west-tmzKanye West is not committing to any concerts after the first of the year, and there is no date set for when he'll return to the stage ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Kanye tell us he is in a fragile state and needs medical and psychological help to become healthy again. There is no way of projecting a date when Kanye will have fully recovered, and as a result all of his Saint Pablo Tour shows are on hold.

As we reported ... Kanye canceled all concerts through the end of 2016 just hours before he suffered a mental breakdown. At the time, he planned to get back on the road early in 2017, but now all bets are off.

Our sources are quick to add Kanye could bounce back before the new year, but it's just too early to tell.

At least there's good news in the financial department. As TMZ first reported, Kanye has an insurance policy that covers his profits and obligations as a result of concert cancellations.

NKOTB Fan Sues ... I'm Not Hip Anymore!!!

11/28/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1121_nkotb_wellsfargo_compositeNew Kids On The Block is getting a little long in the tooth, judging from its fans, because one of them says she fell during a concert and broke her hip.

The lady says she was swaying to the music at Philly's Wells Fargo Center last year when she slipped on liquid and landed on her butt, fracturing her left hip. She says the injuries were debilitating.

New Kids are not being sued ... just the venue, for not mopping up the liquid.  

As for her damages ... she says they're severe -- physical and psychological pain, loss of life's pleasures, etc.

Kanye West Hospitalized Handcuffed in Ambulance

11/21/2016 5:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1121_kanye_west_tmz-15bKanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.

According to law enforcement sources ... cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He was at his trainer Harley Pasternak's home at the time and was "acting erratically."

We're told police called L.A. Fire, and by the time paramedics arrived Kanye was calmer ... but still resistant to going to the hospital. We're told everyone -- his management and law enforcement -- convinced him it was best he go. Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye was handcuffed to a gurney during transport to the hospital ... as standard protocol. 

We got Pasternak outside his house late Monday evening. If he knows how Kanye's doing, he's not saying much.

Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation while he was at Pasternak's place ... and someone decided to call police.

The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kanye abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, and launching into a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyonce.

As we told you, Kim Kardashian flew to NYC early Monday for her first public event since the Paris robbery ... but she's now officially bailed. It's a good bet she's wheels up for L.A.

The Game $7 Million Excuse ... My Tooth Hurts, Ask My Dentist

11/21/2016 1:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1121-the-game-doc-launch-tmz-wm-2The Game tried to delay his sexual assault trial at the 11th hour but the judge shot down his request ... and now the rapper's pointing to a couple bad infections as the reason for his last-ditch effort.

Sources close to the rapper tell us Game's dentist drew up a letter last week -- obtained by TMZ -- outlining exactly why Game shouldn't travel to Illinois for the trial ... pointing to a severe tooth infection digging into Game's sinus ... resulting in a severe infection.

The letter obviously didn't work -- the case continued and, as we reported, Game lost and was ordered to fork over $7.13 million to Priscilla Rainey.

The rapper's manager, Wack 100, tells us they're appealing the decision.

Rams' Robert Quinn Family Called 911 for Possible Seizure

11/15/2016 4:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

L.A. Rams defensive end Robert Quinn was shaking uncontrollably during an episode on Monday morning -- and his mother-in-law called 911 because she believed he was having a seizure. 

The 26-year-old was at a home in Agoura, CA when the medical episode began around 6 AM. His mother-in-law was at the residence at the time -- and despite the fact she was clearly frightened, she composed herself enough to call 911. 

At the time of the call, Quinn's mother-in-law told the operator he was still shaking ... though he stopped during the call and actually stood up. The operator advised Quinn to lay back down. 

Emergency personnel raced to the scene and Quinn was transported to a nearby hospital. He was released the next day. 

Quinn was diagnosed and treated for a brain tumor in high school -- though it's unclear if that condition contributed to the episode on Monday.
