Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' Medic, Please! VIP Scuffle Cut Me Deep

7/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Magro from 'Jersey Shore' needed stitches to repair his sliced and bloodied hand after a rough night in a Las Vegas club.

TMZ obtained a shot of Ronnie's messed up left mitt -- he walked away from the fight with what looks like 5 lacerations. As we first reported ... Ronnie sustained the injuries early Friday morning in Tao Las Vegas.

Sources connected to Ronnie say he was in VIP when a crowd spilled into the area around him ... and as he tried to shield her, someone threw a bottle or glass which shattered on his hand. A rep for Tao tells a slightly different story -- saying there were no other individuals involved, and Ronnie just accidentally broke a bottle in his hand. 

Either way, Ronnie didn't realize he was cut -- booze numbs, after all -- until his gf pointed out he was bleeding on her. Security at TAO gave him a few bandages and suggested he get stitches.

He initially blew off that advice, but we're told Ronnie gave in Friday afternoon and got stitches.

UFC's Khabib Nurmagomedov Hulk Punches Man In Stomach ... After Man Asks For It

7/18/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Here's a video of terrifying UFC destroyer Khabib Nurmagomedov punching an average dude in the stomach super freakin' hard ... but don't worry, the guy actually ASKED him to.

Now, why this dude wanted to get popped in the guts by a guy who wrestles bears for fun is beyond us, but it 100% happened when Khabib was messing around with some fans in Tajikistan.

We don't know what Khabib says to the guy before the punch happens, but he seems to be telling him how the shot is going to rearrange his organs before he hits him.

Good news? After he delivers the dragon punch to the dude's stomach the two men hug, which is great, but watching the whole thing made us happy we give hugs to bond on this side of the pond.

"American Idol" contestant Haley Reinhart's friend suffered horrendous injuries the night she was arrested after a bar bouncer put him in a choke hold and allegedly beat him.

TMZ broke the story, Haley was arrested for allegedly punching the security guard in the face, but she says she was just trying to get the bouncer to release what she thought was a death grip.

Haley's friend, Alan Chislof, suffered a concussion, facial laceration near his right temple, a bad cut above his left eye, facial bruising and hematoma. The choke hold caused blood to flow to his eyes and he looks like he went 5 rounds with Mayweather. He says he's coughing up blood and complaining of chest pain.

Chislof's lawyer, Mark Brown, now promises a lawsuit.

We also got video of the confrontation, and gotta say ... it seems to support Haley's version of events.

7/17/2017 6:57 AM PDT

9:21 AM -- Ryan just tweeted the injury is the result of a freak accident, NOT an injury he suffered doing a stunt or anywhere near the set of "Shooter."Ryan Phillippe's learning the hard way ... breaking a leg as an actor ain't always a good thing.

The "Shooter" star is laid up in a hospital bed with his right leg bandaged up -- also looks like he has a cast around his ankle. It's unclear what he broke, but based on the hardware fixed on the leg ... we're guessing there was some surgery involved.

No word if it's a work related injury, but Ryan captioned the pic, "I'm going to be ok and I appreciate your concern." A few hours later he changed his tune a bit, tweeting, "this sucks."

More pain meds, please.

EXCLUSIVE

Gwen Stefani created a dangerous stampede at one of her concerts when she invited fans to rush the stage ... at least according to a woman who's suing her for just that.

Lisa Stricklin just filed suit against the No Doubt singer, claiming she invited lawn seat fans to come forward into a reserved seated area at the PNC Pavilion at her Charlotte, NC concert last July.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Stricklin says Stefani shouted ... "Just fill in anywhere you like! Who cares about your lawn chairs? You can get new ones!" ... which allegedly prompted a ton of people to stampede into the seated area, injuring Stricklin.

She claims her leg was broken in the chaos, and she had to shell out for surgery and treatment afterward. She also says Stefani acknowledged the mistake that same night by saying "I got in so much trouble for telling you guys to come up here!" 

Stricklin is now suing Stefani and Live Nation for negligence, and wants big damages. Live Nation had no comment ... so far no word back from Stefani.
