George Michael was airlifted to a hospital yesterday after reportedly sustaining a head injury in a single-car accident in England ... but doctors say he's expected to be OK.
According to the singer's rep, Michael was a passenger in a Range Rover that crashed on the M1 motorway (a huge freeway) at around 5:50 PM local time.
The rep says no vehicles were involved in the crash. It's unclear exactly what caused the collision.
A rep for the emergency response crew released a statement saying, "[George] sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to the hospital for further care."
Michael's spokesperson says the singer only suffered "superficial cuts" -- and was doing just fine.
So far, the driver of the Range Rover has not been identified.
Billy Bob Thornton should get an award for his reaction to his ex-wife Angelina Jolie undergoing a most likely lifesaving double mastectomy.
Billy, who was married to Angelina from 2000 to 2003 ... said she "deserves absolutely the best in every way. She always has, she always will in my book."
Watch the clip, Billy has more kind and totally appropriate words for Angie -- but it's impressive because the camera guy started out by asking ... "Have you talked to Angie since the double vasectomy?"
Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy procedure -- the removal of both of her breasts -- in order to minimize her risk of breast cancer ... the actress revealed.
Jolie penned an op-ed published in the New York Times, in which she reveals, "Doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer."
She continues, "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive."
37-year-old Jolie says she completed the 3 months of medical procedures on April 27. She will continue to document her experience on the website for the Pink Lotus Breast Center, where she was (and still is being) treated.
The PLBC has treated stars like Sheryl Crow and Shannon Tweed.
"I am fortunate to have a partner, Brad Pitt, who is so loving and supportive," Jolie writes.
"For any woman reading this, I hope it helps you to know you have options."
Kim Kardashian is turning into a real bad ass ... she's telling friends she thinks Kanye West was spot on when he lunged and swore at a paparazzo in Bev Hills.
Kim -- who is always impervious to the gaggle of photogs who chronicle her every move -- thinks Kanye was justified when he bolted out of a restaurant and went all Incredible Hulk on an unsuspecting camera guy.
As you know ... Kanye had a close encounter with a metal sign as he walked to 9021PHO, slamming his forehead UFC style with a souvenir that will probably last for a week.
Kim is telling friends ... the paparazzi have become increasingly aggressive with both of them since she became pregnant. She's especially upset because on Monday a photog chased her down while she was driving and she had to swerve into another lane to avoid him and almost got into a bad accident.
Bottom line ... Kim is encouraging Kanye to take care of business when a photog crosses the line. The problem with her theory -- in the case of the sign, the photogs held their distance and Kanye just didn't look where he was going.
Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Angie Everhart has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer ... and will undergo surgery tomorrow, this according to Everhart's rep.
"Word has been trickling out about [Angie's] health," the rep told "Extra" ... "[Angie] wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good."
The rep adds, "[Angie] will undergo surgery tomorrow and expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks."
Everhart's rep says ... the model hopes releasing the information about her health will "encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately.”
As Kim Kardashian continues to grow and grow, Kanye West is now sporting a bump of his own ... on his forehead.
Kanye was spotted in Beverly Hills early this morning with the giant bruise ... a souvenir from his run-in with a street sign on Friday.
As TMZ previously reported, Kanye walked smack dab into a metal sign post while out with Kim Kardashian. After first showing some restraint with the paps over the incident, he later exploded on one guy ... who claimed he wasn't even there when Kanye hit his head.
Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman died of alcohol-related cirrhosis -- scarring of the liver from years of heavy drinking ... this according to the band's official website.
The band posted a statement on its website ... saying, "While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent Necrotizing fasciitis infection (AKA flesh-eating disease) that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life."
"Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving – he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record."
FYI -- Hanneman had several operations last year to remove dead tissue from his arm ... he believed he contracted the freaky, flesh-eating bacteria from a spider bite he suffered in a friend's hot tub.
Hanneman was the heart and soul of Slayer ... not only was he a HUGE guitar hero, but he also wrote several of their best-known songs, including "Raining Blood" and "Seasons in the Abyss."
Slayer is planning a public celebration of his life later this month ... but details are still being worked out.
