Brian Austin Green

Spousal Support Necessary

Vertigo Derails Work

8/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-brian-austin-green-tmz-01Brian Austin Green will almost certainly get spousal support from Megan Fox in their divorce, and the reason appears to stem from a terrible car accident.

TMZ broke the story, Megan filed for divorce Friday.  As we said, our sources say it's likely she'll end up paying Brian spousal support, because of the large disparity in income and income potential.

We're told Brian has worked very little since last December, when he was in a head-on collision.  As we reported, Brian and Megan were driving when they were hit by a drunk driver who was arrested.  Brian says the guy was going around 50 MPH and it was severe enough for the airbags to deploy.

At the time of the accident TMZ was told Brian and Megan were not injured.  But now we're told the accident triggered a serious medical condition ... vertigo, which affects balance.

Our sources say Brian's vertigo is so bad he can't get out of bed.  We're told he hasn't worked since the accident.

As we reported, Brian and Megan -- who is working steadily on huge movies -- are still living in the same home.

Wife Begs for Rehab

8/23/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812-ivan-moody-facebook-03Five Finger Death Punch singer Ivan Moody is running out of time -- his estranged wife says he's having bizarre Jekyll & Hyde-like episodes and needs to get help for alcohol abuse, stat. 

Moody's estranged wife, Holly Smith, filed an affidavit with the Adams County Court in Colorado ... saying Ivan can no longer tell the difference between his real persona and his onstage one ... thanks to his alcohol abuse.

In the docs, Smith says Ivan's taking on the personality of the band's song, "Jekyll and Hyde." She says, "Ivan has talked to me in third person in a voice different from his own as if he were a demonic presence inhabiting a body."

Ivan's sister, Sandra Dykes, filed an affidavit of her own as well backing up many of Holly's claims.

Holly and Sandra think he needs to get into rehab immediately. In the meantime, the judge granted Holly a restraining order against Ivan after she showed photos of bruises he allegedly gave her.

... Fan Gets Injured

8/22/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't let the horns and banjo fool you ... Mumford & Sons can rock hard, so hard in fact ... the band sent a guitar stand flying into the crowd and smashed a fan in the head.

A woman suffered the heinous blow during the band's recent show in Walla Walla, Washington, during the encore. The band was jamming pretty hard (as hard as they can) to "Ditmas" when ... for some reason ... Marcus Mumford chucked the metal rod about 10-15 rows deep

According to witnesses, she was clearly hurt and the crowd tried to get the band to stop playing so she could get medical attention. But M&S kept going, and so did she ... sticking it out for the rest of the show.

It's unclear how badly she was injured. Reps for the band haven't gotten back to us yet. 

Ironically ... the tour's called Gentlemen of the Road.

0820-erik-kramer-getty-01Former Chicago Bears quarterback Erik Kramer shot himself Tuesday night in an attempted suicide ... but survived ... and is currently recovering in an L.A. hospital. 

Kramer -- who played 13 seasons in the NFL -- was discovered by law enforcement in a motel in Calabasas around 8 PM, according to NBC. The extent of his injury is unclear.  

The 50-year-old's ex-wife Marshawn told NBC News Kramer has suffered from depression for years ... which she believes is a direct result of the hits he took during his time in the league. 

"He is a very amazing man, a beautiful soul, but he has suffered depression since he was with the Bears. I can promise you he is not the same man I married."

Shannen Doherty

Sues Business Manager

My Breast Cancer is Your Fault

8/19/2015 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



1:55 PM PST: A rep for the firm tells TMZ: "Tanner Mainstain is saddened to learn that Ms. Doherty is suffering from cancer and wishes her a full recovery. However, the claim that Tanner Mainstain caused her to be uninsured, prevented her from seeking medical care, or somehow contributed to her cancer is patently false."

They also say they will "aggressively defend" all of Shannen's claims in court.

update_grey_gray_barShannen Doherty says her business manager is responsible for the severity of her breast cancer. 

Shannen has filed a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, in which she claims Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson took 5% of her earnings in return for managing her finances, including payment of her medical insurance to SAG.

She says the firm ignored an invoice for payment of the premium in 2014. The insurance was cancelled and apparently she couldn't re-enroll until 2015. Shannen says during the lapse period she didn't regularly visit doctors, which had been her practice. 

In March 2015, after getting her insurance back, she went to a doctor and discovered she had "invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node." She says doctors told her the cancer spread during 2014, when she was uninsured, and she blames her business manager. 

She indicates in the lawsuit she now will likely have to take measures -- including a mastectomy and chemotherapy -- that could have been avoided if the cancer had been caught earlier. 

The docs say she parted ways with the business manager sometime in 2014.

Fires Duck, Kid Goes Down

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is losing ground in the polls -- and this video won't help ... not with the diehard football fans.

Rubio was tossing the pigskin with some kids in Iowa -- where every other candidate is hanging this week -- and let's just say he needs to work on his spiral ... or get Odell Beckham Jr. as his running mate.

He made it near impossible for the poor kid going out for the pass -- although, in Rubio's defense ... it did hit him in the hands. Awkwardly.
